Briefly.co.za shared news earlier of TB Joshua's unbelievable revelation. The outspoken prophet emphatically claimed that the coronavirus would cease to exist by March 27th and our readers reacted strongly to the news.
Earlier Briefly.co.za reported that TB Joshua stunned the world with an eye-opening revelation.
The charismatic pastor claimed that the dreaded coronavirus would come to a sudden halt by Friday March 27th.
On Sunday, Joshua addressed his congregation and shared the unbelievable claim:
“I came out at the beginning of this year saying last year will end in March and the year will continue to be very fearful till this month March. This month 27th, it will be over. By the end of this month, whether we like it or not, no matter the medicine they might have produced to cure whatever, it will go the way it came."
The Nigerian religious leader enjoys a cult following around the world and many of his followers have no reason to doubt his claim, albeit an unlikely one.
Upon sharing the news, Briefly.co.za noted the strong reaction from the South African public.
Joshua's speech had a polarising effect. Many threw their weight behind him, but others reacted with disdain.
Numerous people questioned his prophetic ability based on his church building that collapsed without warning and others even labelled him a con artist.
Potlako Thabang Lee agreed wholeheartedly:
"When two or more agree on something , it shall be so in heaven thus says the bible . If we in faith agree with his declaration , it can done. Even if it is a prophecy , let's watch and pray for its fulfilment."
Prim Thelma Maganga Batai added,
"Jesus is the only answer,coz the medical science can run out of options,but Jesus will never fail us."
Mohlasedi Mahlasedi took a more pragmatic approach:
"Praying is not going to stop the virus,People need to keep interaction to minimum and be diligently hygienic until medical science can provide a vaccine."
Gary Patience heavily criticised Joshua:
"This thing is taking from poor people and living a lavish life ....... he is a legal con artist."
Sherif Munzhelele cited previous examples of fail prophesies:
"He couldn't foresee when would the church collapse and he lied to U.S by saying Hillary Clinton will be the President of United State and then now he expects us to take him serious! This guy must stop disrespecting like this."
