I do not dispute the probability their persuasions entail but it is imperative to expose their whims because their prophecies are water-loose, religious seers as bodies of apology.
They see what they think and what they think is influenced by what they believe. So a Muhammadan will not see the picture of the saint Mary in a watermelon during the Ramadan, neither will a Christian see a vision of a man in a full turban shouting ‘Allah Akbar’ in his dream. For this, religious vision of the end time could be ideology and sentiment inflected because it could be a way of seeking attention and justification of how one religion is superior to the other. It is then wise to evaluate every dogma proposed by the religious ideologues.
Also, those who see vision or image and relate it to the future occurrence could be suffering from ‘pareidolia’, which is the phenomenon of attributing reality to vagueness. In other light, grammar and essays have rules and methods, ditto, the prophecies of some prophets.
Exegesisically, a Nigerian pastor said that Dangote has been destined to be like Trump from heaven. I meticulously studied the method of the prophecy and I realized that the man of God used the past to predict the future. This method was also used by the man who saw tomorrow, Nostradamus. His predictions were said to contain Biblical allusions and classical woes. The use of the past as a fulcrum of the future while prophesying or predicting is called ‘retroactive clairvoyance’.
How did T.B Joshua’s prophecy about Hillary fail?
Anyone who studied the zeitgeist of the U.S election period would know that a certain thing seemed INEVITABLE. Similarly, Some Seers do capitalize on the inevitability of certain future occurrences in their spiritual ART AND ACT of prophesying. This mathematically accounts for T.B’s prophecy about Hilary. It can be opinionatedly asserted that T.B was influenced by the zeitgeist of the period and calculated the future using the principle of inevitability but we were shocked how the impossible manifested, as popular and unwanted paradox acclivities achieved a fruition of hard-to-believe metaphor.
In an endless end of the masquerade show, I do not dispute the probability their persuasions entail but it is imperative to expose their whims because their prophecies are water-loose.
