Prophecy generally refers to a prediction which is supposed to be a vision from God to guide his people. It is always direct and easy to understand. Though Jesus talked in parables, prophecies in the Bible were straight to the point. A good example was the prediction of Jesus’ birth in Isaiah 7:14, hundreds of years before he was born. The prophecy of his birth was straight and it came to pass.
There are some predictions these days that bring ridicule to real prophecies. How to distinguish true prophecy was stated in 2 Peter 1:21: For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
Prophets are expected to function as preachers, predictors and watchmen, but many prophets are only functioning as predictors. One prophet whose activities have been raising series of questions because of his prophecies and their predictability is Primate Elijah Babatunde Ayodele, the founder of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church. He’s one prophet that talks yearly about his predictions for the country. He releases a book on yearly basis called the Book of Prophecy.
Over the years, there have been many questions raised about the authenticity of his predictions and the source. Many have argued that his predictions are too ordinary to come from God and that there is nothing divine about them. Below are some of his predictions for 2017 and the way people believe they were conceived;
His prediction on the banking sector is believed to be more of guesswork, owing to the fact that it is common knowledge that the CBN needs to put in more effort to steer the country out of recession. Discerning people believe that his statement that the government must do the right thing is like sitting on the fence, as he did not mention what the right thing is.
Since the beginning of the recession banks in the country haves been sacking and redeploying to block the hole such action may create. It is also general knowledge that some bank CEOs will have to step down this year according to the new policy guiding their appointment.
It is also general knowledge that Assets Management Company of Nigeria (AMCON) has been facing challenges in its effort at recovering all sorts of debts. It is the belief of those spoken to on this that the prediction on banking is more of guesswork than God’s work.
Talking of his predictions on the foreign scene, it is strange that he did not predict Trump’s triumph as President of United States earlier last year; and it is a general belief that God did not need inform people through any prophet of the likely issues the government of Donald Trump may face – that is the expectation of the people, since his choices are not popular among the people.
He spoke of killings in South Africa and this is expected since there has been agitation on the side of the citizens since last year, while his prediction on President Zuma was faulted on the fact that he’s been having issues of corruption and his resignation will only mean another person taking over the leadership on the ANC.
It is believed that asking for a 90-year-old Queen Elizabeth to pray for good health is absurd, because at her age many things will be wrong health-wise. The prediction of the death of a global president is seen like somebody throwing a stone into a pond and telling people it will touch water. On Germany’s election the Chancellor has been facing issues of her immigrant acceptance and this calls for re-strategising. Al Shabab terrorist group has not been defeated in Kenya so predicting a bomb blast in Kenya is like shooting into a gallery.
On personalities asking Alex Duduyemi at 80 years, Lateef Jakande at 87 years, Peter Odili at 69 years, Bashir Tofa at 70 years, Yakubu Gowon at 83 years, Victor Olaiya at 86 years, TY Danjuma at 78 years, Shehu Shagari at 92 years, Alex Ekwueme at 84 years, Ernest Shonekan at 80 years, and others like that to pray for good health is a normal thing. They are old and will need all the good health prayers the can get.
It is even more funny to predict that Dangote should pray so that his truck will not get an accident and crisis; and saying INEC will change some of is strategies in election procedures is not divine, as it is the norm in every elections
His prediction on the economy seems contradictory to what he said about the banking industry. Saying the Spirit of God said there is red signal in Nigeria’s economy that will be causing pain for the nation and saying in the same vein that Nigeria’s economy will start picking up in the same year is confusing. His prediction where he said “I foresee fluctuation on the way of our economy rising. The economic indices will be going up and down until the government decides to do the right thing” is ambiguous and did not show that God is actually speaking.
It is believed that common sense should prevail in the way we go about things. There are many ambiguous and open-ended words that depict somebody that did not really understand where he’s going or is deliberately causing confusion to have a way out whatever way the story goes. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 14:33: For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. And with the level of confusion that plagues the annual predictions, it is believed that it is more of Guess Work than God’s Work.
Below is text of Primate Ayodele’s Predictions for 2017:

The price of gold will be fluctuating and there will be more natural resources that will be discovered in Nigeria. Charcoal will be scarce. The price of paints will be high.
I foresee Nigeria importing petroleum products from the neighbouring countries on a larger scale. The Spirit of God says that the exportation of crude oil may earn Nigeria a lot of money as Nigeria will discover oil in more some states of the federation.
I foresee dirty deals rocking the boat of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation. The Spirit of God says the Group Managing Director of the NNPC must be prayerful so as to overcome challenges and indictment. I foresee changes at the top management levels too.
I foresee pipeline vandalisation and explosions. I foresee that gas will be used to power vehicles, and that is why it will be scare. I foresee that vehicles using gas will be on our roads. I foresee PENGASSAN and NUPENG going on strike.
Forte Oil must pray so that any of their trucks will not be involved in a fatal accident. Oando will want to have expansion in their offshore and they will win a contract. The oil giant Exxon Mobil will experience troubles as the company will be forced to make some payments.
Forte oil may be sued and must be careful so that they will not be scammed and they should pray against debt. I foresee changes in DPR. There will be crisis in OPEC. Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) should pray against emergency and changes in leadership. There will be a fake oil production in this sector.
Nollywood stars (Yoruba and English genres) should pray to rebuke deaths and accident among them. I foresee there will be rancour among their fractional leaders. The musicians should pray against challenges and disunity among themselves.
The media practitioners should pray to rebuke death and accident among them. Also the sport writers must pray not to lose any one in the association. Let us pray against deaths in NTA, Channels and AIT. Journalists should pray not to witness demise of any of the senior reporters and editors and they should pray for God’s protection in the year.
