A Popular Pastor, Rev. Simeon Ononogbu, has blamed “deceitful” spirit for the failed prediction that the Super Falcons will reach the semi-finals of the FIFA Women World Cup in France.
The self-acclaimed forecaster also said in interview that France would place fifth (best placed quarter-finalists).
The former Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ebonyi, South East Nigeria branch, sought the understanding of Nigerians on the failed prophecy, noting that he will be more careful in future prophecies.
“It is a pity that the prediction on the Falcons failed which means that it was not a revelation from God.
“We have so many spirits that can deceive people and if we are not careful, we will make mistakes such as this,” he said.
He said evil spirits are always out there which act like God’s spirit to talk and deceive men of God.
“The Bible says that some spirits at times, transform into angels of light to talk to us.
“We have “fallen’’ spirits that deceive the children of God because we are humans and weaker than the other spirits,” he said.
Ononogbu, however, revealed that the prophecy on the Falcons could also have failed because he may not have interpreted it well.
“At times when we don’t interpret properly, we will have problems out of it and this can also be seen as a wrong interpretation,” he said.
He, however, insisted that in spite of the failed prophesy, the revelation of France placing fifth in the tournament still stands because it is from God.
“This particular interpretation was clearer than that of the Falcons and we should wait till the end of the competition for its fulfillment,” he said.
Ononogbu said he had correctly made eight-significant prophecies which were fulfilled and that no one should judge him.
