“Watch out for false prophets! They dress up like sheep, but inside they are wolves who have come to attack you. You can tell what they are by what they do.” (Matthew 7:15-16).
Nigeria – As the year runs to an end, here’s a list of pastors who boldly said God told them some certain event would happen during the 2015 elections. Their prophecies didn’t come to pass:
Prophet Olaniyi Odutayo of the World Prophetic Church, Ikeja, after fasting for 40 days, said then President Goodluck Jonathan would defeat three strong contenders to emerge victorious in the elections.
His words: “During the prayer/fasting, the Lord showed me three men trying to bury Goodluck Jonathan. Each one of them was trying to bury him one after the other, but as they pushed down his head, he rose up again. After the third man pushed down his head, he thought he had prevailed, he was already jubilating but suddenly Goodluck rose up.”
Prophet Joseph Oladipupo, shepherd in charge of Faith and Victory Church, Akure Ondo state.
His words: “The upcoming election will be very tough for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) but they will win the presidency.”
Primate Elijah Ayodele, founder and General Overseer of Inri Evangelical Spiritual Church, predicted that God showed him Jonathan would continue to rule till 2019.
His words: “The 2015 elections will hold but will be peaceful in some areas and not in other areas. As it is, from what I see at the moment, PDP will win, amidst serious criticism,”
Prophet Paul Okikiiesu, a Lagos prophet correctly said that Buhari might be voted for.
His words: “If Buhari can surrender his heart to me, he will win the election. Nevertheless despite people’s mandate, they will neither release power to him nor swear him in as the president of the nation. His situation will be similar to Abiola that had people’s mandate, but was not given the chance to rule the country.”
