Compliment of the season to all our readers. It is our utmost pleasure and thanks to God that we, the publishers and you, our faithful readers made it till the end of yet another wonderful year. As year 2016 comes to an end, the coming year is filled with high hopes and expectations. However, the New Year will be well prepared for and better off if we know God’s plans for us. The Holy Bible makes us understand that God told Noah He would destroy the world with flood; this warning from God helped Noah to work towards God’s instructions, by building the ark that made him and others who listened to God’s warning escape the unforeseen occurrence. This is why Prophecy is important for everyone because it prepares us ahead of time to avoid unforeseen circumstances.
It is barely a year, since Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied concerning the year 2016. The ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua is well known for its accurate Prophetic utterances and warning on critical issues about individuals, nations, and the world. Few months after his 2016 Prophecy, the forewarned events began to unfold, confirming the accuracy of his Prophecies. The man of God gave numerous advice and warning to nations and leaders of the world. He foretold that:
- There will be a large scale food scarcity and advised the world especially, African countries to go back to Agriculture.
- The Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari has good intentions for his country but he would do everything possible to reject the revaluation of the Nigerian currency.
- There will be excess rainfall in some parts of the world while others will experience drought.
- There will be uprising of terrorism as a result of political instability in nations of the world.
- There will be a stability in the then fluctuating South African currency and many more.
He then urged those concerned to take his Prophetic words seriously. But little or none of these prophecies were taking seriously. The neglect of these Prophecies by the concerned nations led to the various challenges – hunger, economic recession and the increase in terrorism experienced this year.
A Prophecy that comes as a warning can be averted if the people concerned take them seriously and pray to avert it; for not all Prophecies that are given are meant to come to pass. However, they can come to pass only if those involved take the prophecies for granted. Just like the Prophecy about the 2016 USA Presidential election, Trump supporters and the American Church took the Prophecy serious and averted it by praying for God’s mercy upon their land.
As the Prophet will always say, “a Prophet shall say that which he shall live to see accomplished.” The people, who refused to take the 2016 prophetic warning serious, can actually see its fulfillment; for they are now a reality. The words of the Prophet should be taken with utmost seriousness because his Prophecies have been proven to be 100% accurate and it is even a rare privilege for us to be in this era of a great Prophet of God, who can communicate the mind of God to individuals and nations of the world.
As we would be ushered into the year 2017, with a Prophetic message from the servant of God, we should therefore see this as an opportunity to know what God has to say concerning our nations and the world at large. We urge the world leaders to listen and carefully heed to whatever prophecy that may concern their nations and the world in order to avert any negative occurrence so as to make our world a better place.
