There is no better time to analyze prophesies made by Nigerian pastors and prophets than as 2022 comes to a close. Every time a new year is approaching, it has become customary for clerics to make predictions or prophecies regarding various groups, individuals, and organizations.
Most clergymen don’t consider themselves to be effective ministers of God until they can speak authoritatively about current events in front of their followers, churchgoers, and the general public.
The subject of prophecy is like a coin with two sides. We have pastors who make up prophesies, but we also have those who go above and above to find miracles and prophecies.
Bible texts that warn against false prophets and predictions are disregarded by these miracle and prophecy seekers.
The LORD then told me, “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name,” according to Jeremiah Chapter 14 verse 14. This is one of the most famous verses in the Bible. They were not dispatched, appointed, or addressed by me. They are giving you erroneous prophecies based on divinations, idolatries, and their own mental disorders.
Every year, pastors take to the streets to foretell the future or make prophesies about people and things.
However, this year was the same as last. Despite the disappointment surrounding 2020 forecasts, when none specifically referenced the Coronavirus (COVID) or lockdown, other preachers made audacious and definitive declarations.
A few preachers made forecasts that might affect 2022. These religious leaders claimed that God had sent them to foretell the future and prophesy to their congregations and the general public. These forecasts cover a variety of topics, including politics, the economics, way of life, sports, and national issues.
As Nigerians anticipate the start of the year 2023, research by a reporter for WITHIN NIGERIA revealed that a number of forecasts were made by Nigerian pastors and prophets.
This reporter has prepared a list of forecasts about sports, politics, and other national issues that were stated by well-known Nigerian pastors or prophets but did not come to pass.
Here are a handful of the most notable pastors’ prophesies that were not fulfilled:
Nigerian currency prophecy
On January 1, 2022, Prophet Ikechukwu Samuel, the General Overseer of the Abuja-based Shiloh World Chapel, predicted that the value of the Naira, the currency of Nigeria, would rise in the following month.
The prophet also said that in a few months, the value of the naira would increase..According to a Bloomberg report, the Naira lost 6.3 percent of its value this year on the official market, which went against the expectation that it would increase in value.
The Naira is on pace for its worst losing streak in two years, according to international business news sources.
Infant Mortality Reduction Prophecy
Infant mortality in Nigeria would significantly decrease, according to a prophecy made by Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG).
The senior pastor predicts a reduction in newborn mortality of at least 50%.
Nigeria has one of the highest infant death rates in the world, according to the UNICEF (United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund).
According to a UNICEF assessment on the “status of women and children in Nigeria,” there are “69 infant deaths for every 1000 live births” in Nigeria.
The fourth highest on Earth, according to the most recent statistics, the maternal mortality rate is 576 per 100,000 live births.
The second-highest national total in the world, over 262,000 babies die at birth each year.
According to the research, infant mortality now stands at 69 per 1,000 live births, while it jumps to 128 per 1,000 live births for children under the age of five.
According to data from UNICEF, the UN Inter-Agency Group for Child Death Estimation, and the World Bank, Nigeria’s infant mortality rate has been continuously dropping since 1965.
From 190 per 1000 in 1965 to 72 in 2020, it decreased.
There is no indication of a margin as great as Adeboye expects, despite the fact that the drop might be linked to the country’s increasing access to contemporary health care.
From 2020 to 2022, the decline in percentage was only about 3%.
Prophecy on Peter Obi to win PDP presidential primary
The World Zionist Union’s ministerial leader, Prophet Godfrey Gbujie prophesied that former Anambra governor Peter Obi would win the Peoples Democratic Party presidential nomination (PDP).
Gbujie added that Obi would be the political arrowhead in Southern Nigeria.
According to the 65-year-old celibate prophet, former vice president, Atiku Abubakar and Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike have more financial muscle than Obi.
The native of Akabuo, Ahiazu Mbaise local government area of Imo who is based in Enugu stressed that the two “are not favoured by God for the position”.
Findings revealed that Peter Obi left the PDP before the party’s presidential primary, which was won by Atiku Abubakar.
Days after he dumped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi moved to the Labour Party and emerged as its presidential candidate.
France is foretold to win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
France will win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, according to a prophecy made by Pastor Marcus Tibetan, senior pastor of the Celestial Church of Christ.
The preacher predicted that France would triumph over other nations and win the gold medal.
The prophet, who claimed to have played soccer for 17 years, claimed to have predicted that France would win and Morocco would finish second to the son of one of his church members who came for harvest.
However, Croatia overcame Morocco to claim the bronze medal, and Argentina defeated France to win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Prophecy Regarding Food Prices
Prophet Ikechukwu Samuel, the General Overseer of the Abuja-based Shiloh World Chapel, also foretold that food prices would not increase further in 2022.
Unlike in 2021, the prophet predicts that farmers will be happy this year.
I witnessed an agriculturally beneficial rain arriving even in the far north of Africa, and Nigeria’s food shortage will not persist in this year 2022, he continued.
The forecast was a failure, nevertheless, as a result of the skyrocketing cost of goods and the vehement discontent it sparked among people of all backgrounds.
The increase in food prices was caused by factors like an increase in fertilizer costs and floods that devastated cropland.
Prediction regarding Bola Tinubu’s bid for the presidency inside the All Progressives Congress (APC)
Former governor Bola Tinubu would not win the presidency, according to a prophecy by Prophet Bisi Olujobi of Wisdom Church International in Lagos.
The cleric added that his recurring predictions, “as commanded by God,” foretold forthcoming events in Nigeria.
He stated: “Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will not win the APC presidential primary poll that is scheduled for the end of this month, May,” in a statement on Wednesday.
The top candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC) “would be astonished as there are powerful conspiracies waiting for him,” according to Olujobi.
“I witness Tinubu being cheaply debased and denigrated. His attempt to change parties will likewise fail because God does not intend for him to be in charge of this country.
The prophecy is inaccurate, deceptive, and false as determined by a check conducted WITHIN NIGERIA.
Bola Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos, won the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential primary. To get the ruling party’s nomination, he defeated Yemi Osinbajo, Rotimi Amaechi, and other opponents, including his closest competitor.
