Four days after the shocking shelling of the South Korean island Yeonpyeong by the North Korean militia and the resultant retaliation, the tension in the region has no signs of waning. In the attacks aftermath, news has emerged that the onslaught was prophesied some weeks earlier by Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua.
“There will be a disagreement between two countries,” T.B. Joshua said during a Sunday service at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, broadcast live on the television station Emmanuel TV. “One will cause the disagreement. The other will retaliate. What is the cause of this? Power.” He elaborated further on the revelation in subsequent services, singling out the nation Korea, specifying Tuesday as a day of prayer and stating that the incident would affect nations known as ‘superpowers’. “Pray for the nation called Korea. The Bible says love your neighbor as yourself – we must pray for them… Remember the message I gave concerning the countries that will have a clash… I am seeing this clash will threaten the security of each country. On Tuesday remember to pray for the whole world.”
The incident on Tuesday 23 November 2010, where 80 shells were unexpectedly fired by North Korea on the Yeonpyeong Island leaving 70% of the island’s forests and fields in flames, caused an escalation of tension on the Korean Peninsula, the United Nations declaring it one of the most serious events since the end of the Korean War. Lee Hong-gi of the JCS told the media that the attack had been a “premeditated, intentional illegal … violation of the U.N. Convention, the Armistice Agreement and the inter-Korean non-aggression accord. It is also an inhumane atrocity, in which [North Korea] indiscriminately fired shells into unarmed civilian residential areas.”
The international community strongly condemned the attack on Yeonpyeong Island and the United States affirmed its military commitments to South Korea by sending the aircraft carrier USS George Washington to join South Korea’s forces near the coasts of China and North Korea in a four-day drill. However, despite strong denunciations to the attack which left four South Koreans dead and dozens more injured, North Korean authorities appear undaunted, stating that the US and South Korea joint military drill was ‘recklessly pushing the Korean peninsula toward war’. The act further fuelled tensions in the area, provoking the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei to respond: “We oppose any party to take any military acts in our exclusive economic zone without permission.”
The prophetic message from Joshua involving Korea comes on the heels of a number of accurate prophetic messages, the most recent involving the Cambodian stampede that left close to 350 people dead. “By Monday, Tuesday pray,” Joshua stated during a Sunday Service in November. “I keep asking God – what is happening? I see people – they were marching on people. People were on the floor – dead people. They were counting the number of people who died. They entered water – I am seeing a lot of people dying.” The stampede occurred on Monday 22nd November 2010 during the traditional Khmer Water Festival celebrations in the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh. The stampede occurred on a bridge across the river, leaving 347 people dead and upwards of 755 more injured, some seriously.
Late in October, Prophet T.B. Joshua had also prophesied about a calamity in the nation of Kenya. “We have to pray for the nation Kenya. A situation where there will be an attack where people gather, that will affect humans, kill people. It is a place where people go for show, coming together. People should be very careful now.” On 6th November 2010, a Kenyan police officer who said he was looking for a woman who infected him with HIV rampaged through three bars in a central Kenyan town and killed 10 people, including two fellow police officers. The shooting spree happened in Siakago, 90 miles north-east of the capital, Nairobi.
