What went wrong? Can God be lying? No! The bible said in Hebrew 6:18 “That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie…”
If God cannot lie, who lied? It means the prophets lied for their prophecies not coming to pass. Deuteronomy 18:22 said: “When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.”
Below are some Nigerian pastors whose prophecies failed overtime.
Undeterred, Okotie used God’s name again in 2007. He emerged the flagbearer of the Fresh Democratic Party. He was defeated by the late President, Umaru Yar’Adua. In 2014, Okotie was at it again when he told the world that God asked him to contest the third time in 2015.
Again, during the build up to the 2015 presidential election, Suleman prophesied that Buhari would win the eastern states. According to him, “I saw most eastern states won by the APC at the national level.” Buhari lost all eastern states to the PDP by wide margin.
“And I am saying the truth, I am saying the truth. Tell him the same voice that spoke when people said Jonathan would be the President of Nigeria, the same voice is speaking to him that he must not make that mistake. Let him eat whatever he wants to eat inside sugar that he is now and leave the sugar ‘jejely’. If not, he will die. That is just the message.”
Buhari went on to win the election and he is still alive.
He later blamed “deceitful” spirit for the failed prediction that the Super Falcons would reach the semi-finals of the FIFA Women World Cup in France. “It is a pity that the prediction on the Falcons failed which means that it was not a revelation from God. We have so many spirits that can deceive people and if we are not careful, we will make mistakes such as this,” he said.
He said that several spirits abound which behaved like God’s spirit to talk and deceive men of God. The Bible says that some spirits at times, transform into angels of light to talk to us. We have “fallen’’ spirits that deceive the children of God because we are humans and weaker than the other spirits.”
Ononogbu, however, revealed that the prophecy on the Falcons could also have failed because he failed to interpret the revelation properly. “At times when we don’t interpret properly, we will have problems out of it and this can also be seen as a wrong interpretation,” he said. He, however, insisted that in spite of the failed prophecy, the revelation of France placing fifth in the tournament still stood because it was from God.
