Some of the Chinese in the video heard the prophecy on social media where Joshua declared “rain would fall to wipe away all fears of the unknown”, specifying it would fall in Wuhan, China – the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak – and mentioning March 27th, 2020.
“I had been hearing about TB Joshua since I was a kid but I never believed in him,” one of the residents explained.
He said he immediately dismissed Joshua’s prophecy as a “fake prophecy” but became perplexed when heavy rain fell across the region from 23rd to 26th March 2020.
Within that time frame, Wuhan declared it had no new confirmed cases of the disease, leading the resident to change his perception of Joshua’s authenticity.
Sun, a Chinese citizen went on to confirm that the few cases being managed now arose from foreign travellers, but domestic cases had completely ceased.
“March 27th was the last day for the virus to finish in the epicentre,” a Chinese doctor further corroborated, explaining that the heavy ‘lockdown’ imposed by the Chinese government has now been lifted.
“We started working on March 27th,” a Chinese citizen in Shanghai equally stated, adding, “95% of our offices are now working.”
Joshua came under scrutiny on social media after clips of his prophecy regarding coronavirus emerged.
However, the full clip of the prophecy shows Joshua’s message on March 1st and 2nd was directed specifically towards Wuhan, China.
In his prophecy for 2020, Joshua had declared it “the year of humility”, specifying that “God would use challenges such as affliction to humble us” – leading many of his supporters to link such terminology with the ongoing outbreak and its extraordinary worldwide ramifications.
