NATIONS CUP FINAL: EAGLES WILL WIN, SAYS T.B. JOSHUA

Last Updated:Friday, February 8, 2013

The General Overseer of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations, Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua, says Nigeria’s Super Eagles would defeat Burkina Faso in Sunday’s final of the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

T.B. Joshua, who warned Eagles’ coach, Stephen Keshi to avoid conceding a late minute goal in their AFCON Group C opener against the Burkinabe, told P.M.NEWS that Nigeria’s case in the Nations Cup final this year is like the biblical Jacob who wrestled with God, saying that “on Sunday we’ll tell God unless He gives us our heart’s desire we’ll not let Him go.

“The cloud is darker over Nigeria’s Super Eagles, but with God we’ll scale through. If it were not to be the final, anything could have happened. The first match we played with Burkina Faso, it was just by the grace of God that it ended in a draw.

“On Sunday, our opponents will play defensively because they will be looking out for penalty shootout at the end of the game. They will also play through three of their strikers upfront; one of them very tall and huge player and two others.

“What I’m seeing I don’t want to say it because it would be too frightening, but I want to assure that we’ll scale through the challenge on Sunday.”

The prophet who established a football club, My People FC to groom young players, however, warned the Eagles not to allow Burkina Faso to score first in the final, saying that “if this happened the Burkinabe would fall back to defend the goal, which will be very dangerous for our team. I still repeat that no matter the situation, we’ll scale through.

“The Burkina Faso that we played in the group stage will not be the same team we’ll play on Sunday, even though some of their players are out of the squad due to injuries. They are still a team. But I hope for celebration.”


Joshua said as the giant of Africa, Nigeria last won the Nations Cup 13 years ago, which was too long ago for a great football nation like Nigeria.

“I think God should give us this cup to make the youths of this country happy. Winning this cup at this time of religious intolerance and violence will calm down the youths. I want to appeal to all Nigerians to pray for Eagles’ victory. I would have told you the scoreline but I would rather delay it till Sunday morning in order not psychologically distract the players and their coaches and not to demoralise the losing team.”

Prophet Joshua concluded that he would not want Keshi and his team to come to his church to celebrate their victory after the match because he is not the only one praying for the Eagles to win.

“My voice may be the one louder among the men of God in the country but this doesn’t mean that the team should come to my church to celebrate. I would rather prefer that they celebrate their victory with all Nigerians,” Culled from PM NEWS

Of course everybody is predicting now. Before the match started, a lot of baboons were hollering that the eagles will disappoint and some even addressed them as team Biafra (because of the background of most of the players). Now that eagles are shutting them up with their performances, everybody wan predict and chant up Nigeria. TB, abeg tell us who go score the goals and what the final score will be or stop this your mundane last minute prophecies. I no wan any yeye person to blab about he be man of God this and that. We don tire for this f*ckery.

You guys should mind the way you address people. If it is easy, why not you guys call yourself prophet. You can see that, among all pastors, bishop, prophets and religious in Nigeria, it is only TB Joshua that has %100 interest on this on going AFCON. So, nobody should use this avenue to insults any person.

I have followed this man of God closely. I have checked thier tenets of faith. I discovered that they believe what (we charismatics& penticostals) believe about our Lord Jesus Christ. T.B Joshua strongly believes in the incarnation of Jesus, which is a true test of knowing a spirit from God. He believes in the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus. He believes in His human and divine nature.He has never denied any of the fundamentals of Christianity has some erecticals and fake prophets have done.His prophecies have always been accurate.His healing ministry is unique.His personality is calm.His responds to critics are chrislike.His humility is astonishing.I know that fake prophets can perform miracles too but not of this kind.Devils' miracles are limited. When Moses perfomed some miracles before pharaoh and his magicians, the magicians did the same but later they could not go further and Moses' snake swallowed theirs.Power pass power.I can see that T.B Joshua's ministry is very similar to that of William Braham whom they mistook for a fake prophet then also.It took the convictions of some men of God that were in tuned with the Holy Ghost for him to be accepted.The same is happening to T.B Joshua.I still want to meet with him one on one to ask him just a question.I can't just fault his ministry and i believe he is from God because i can see God too much in him.Satan cannot cast out satan.I have heard a lot of accusations against him, which i know were fabricated. Of course he is not perfect and he is liable to mistakes but that does not make him a devil.David made a lot of mistakes but God still said he was a man after His own heart.May God forgive those who are judging this great man of God and may they repent in time before God's judgement falls on them.Pastor Chris is right about him.Benny Hinn is right about him.Other men of God who have followed the Holy Ghost have testified positively about him.I wonder why those who call him a devil cannot go and cast out the devil from him the way Paul did to some fake people in the Bible.They are just afar off criticising him.They listen to what people say about him to judge him.Behold this man,he has never criticised any. This is a true spirit of Christ.If a man is fake and it is glaring that he is fake and we speak against him to expose him, that is not judgement.But when you speak against someone base on pejudices,base on the way he operates without checking his presuppostions,then u are judging him.We know the presuppostions of Guru maraji.We know he is fake.We know the suppostions of Jehovah's witnesses.We know they are not of God. We know the fundamentals of some heretics.We know they are fake.Go and check the presuppostions of T.B. Joshua, then conclude with that.I have checked thier presuppostions.They are in line with our presuppostions,so his ministry is not fake.I rest my case.He prophecied that Nigeria would scale through and it happened.Glory be to God.Ride on the great prophet,your rewards are waiting for you.Never look back to see critics.Just keep gazing your eyes on Jesus,the author and the finisher of our faith.Shalom!

When i hear criticism against TBJ, i feel happy for him. It makes me believe the more what God is using him to do. It also makes me assess other children of God. Did even Jesus' brothers believe in him (Jesus) neither the chief priests? (John 7:5, Mark 15:10-11). If TBJ had belonged to the world they would have loved him as their own (John 15:19). Who had ever criticised the native doctors in our midst? What of Saul before he became converted? After conversion, he became an object of attack. A servant is not greater than his master. If they could persecute Jesus, they will do the worst to his true followers (Matth 10:24-25). I thank God for the life TBJ. You have made me to understand God and his word. You will continue to receive the blessings and protection of God in Jesus name. AMEN.
