Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua has released a message to the nation of Zambia on the eve of their presidential elections via his official Facebook page, followed by 1.5 million people.

Joshua, who boasts of a large followership in Zambia due to the popularity of his Christian television station Emmanuel TV, advised Zambians to let their conscience guide them in choosing their next leader.

“My people of Zambia, shalom,” the cleric’s message began. “At this period in Zambia, I wish to let you know that you are not alone. Our God is aware of what we go through. He will not leave us to our own strength. This is a time we must pass through. With Him, there is light at the end of the tunnel”.

He called on Zambians to remember the Biblical injunction in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 to ‘pray without ceasing’. “imHim, If we know that God is with us, why should we be troubled?”

The controversial Nigerian cleric encouraged Zambians to involve God in their voting. “If you are going to cast your vote, let God’s Word be your standard. Let your conscience be your guide; be convinced in your own heart because anything that does not come from faith is sin,” his short message concluded.

Intriguingly, the current power tussle in Zambia in the wake of former Zambian president Michael Sata’s death in office was allegedly prophesied by the Nigerian cleric.

“Two of the nations in South Africa will face a leadership tussle because of sicknesses and disease,” Joshua allegedly said in February 2014.

The election will pit Edgar Lungu of the ruling Patriotic Front party against his closest rival Hakainde Hichilema of the United Party for National Development.

Zambia’s second President Frederick Chiluba paid a visit to T.B. Joshua’s church in Nigeria both during his presidency and after it, stating publicly prior to his death that he watched Emmanuel TV on a daily basis.

    • God is imaginary and does not exist. He was invented by men just like spiderman that’s you never see him /her. No one seem to know what it is they are referring to when they say God. Even you with you confidence do not know what you mean by God. What he looks like? Where he lives ? Who is his mother or father? Whether he is alive ? You do not these things but you pretend to know instead of admitting you do not know. Pastors are stealing money and abusing girls while the imaginary God watches doing nothing because he is a character in a story book just like Cinderella. Where is hell ? do skies and God is nowhere to be seen because he is an imaginary figure existing in your heads. That’s the bible says the kingdom of god is in you , yes in your head

      • Dibula I feel so sorry for you. You sound bitter. Since you say he is imaginary you must be imaginary too. Coz the very air you breath you can not see yet you believe its air that you are breathing. You are so lost.

  10. @ Dibula you are a misguidedand lost soul, l pray that your eyes be open to the truth that GOD YAHWEH is alive and watching over our land and he takes time to open the taps in heaven so that rain can fall even on your field even as you question his existence. The Bible in Psalms 14: 1 says The [empty-headed] fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable deeds; there is none that does good or right. Seek forgiveness otherwise you will burn in eternal hell Dibula or whatever your name is ……..

  12. Dibula is simply stating the truth he’s not saying there’s no God. God is a myth and personal enotion u can’t see God at all but we believe he’s always there. Many jst pretend to know/pray God bv wat they do like pf stealing votes is jst devilish. U can only see God in some pipo’s love towards their fellow zambians. Pf has divided zambia and Lungu knows that.
