How does one know a true prophet? When he speaks, it comes to fulfillment. That is the story of this man of God with a special gift of prophecy, Bro. Joshua Iginla.
Every year, several prophecies and predictions are made by powerful men of God concerning Nigeria and the outside world, but as it stands, the founder and senior pastor of Champions Royal Assembly, Abuja, Bro. Joshua Iginla, has persistently led the pack of those who have always got it right; therefore, he is arguably a leading prophetic voice in the world.
The televangelist and philanthropist with prophetic prowess and stunning deliverance ministration has made predictions which have had direct impact on domestic and international affairs in recent years. For instance, he was the first prophet to have warned Nigerians about the invasion of the deadly disease, Ebola a few years ago.
In this piece, we chronicle major world events which were accurately predicted by Bro. Joshua Iginla in 2017.
On 10th September 2017, during a live service in his church, Bro. Joshua Iginla gave a word of prophecy concerning Nigeria, specifically regarding Biafra agitation and the form it was to take.
Quoting him, “I see something starting from a small group and it escalated in Nigeria.
“It started from a mini group and its now going high. I see bloodshed but we must pray for Nigeria.
“If there is one thing I want to recommend to the government or those at the helm of affairs, it is caution and there should be no radical decision.”
This prophecy came to fulfillment on Monday 11th September 2017 when the military invaded the residence of the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu, and then tension arose all over the nation, especially the Eastern part.
2. ROBERT MUGABE’S RESIGNATION AS ZIMBABWEAN PRESIDENT
Bro. Joshua Iginla, during his church services on the 14th of May and 2nd of July 2017 had foretold the recent leadership crisis in Zimbabwe.
In his words, “One of the African countries needs to pray against military intervention. I don’t want to say South, North, East or West Africa but one of the African countries should pray against military intervention so that their democracy will not be truncated.”
This prophecy came to pass on 14th November 2017, when Zimbabwe’s military leaders seized control of the impoverished Southern African nation, placing longtime leader, Robert Mugabe under house arrest and deploying armoured vehicles to the streets of the capital, Harare. The events led to Robert Mugabe’s resignation as the president of Zimbabwe, ending his 37-year reign. ?
2. UHURU KENYATTA’S RE-ELECTION AS KENYA’S PRESIDENT
On Sunday, July 23rd, 2017, during a live service in his church, Bro. Joshua Iginla revealed how Uhuru Kenyatta would be re-elected as the president of Kenya. The man of God further disclosed that though the election would be marred by crisis and violence, Kenyatta would still emerge as the country’s number one citizen. In his words, “The nation of Kenya has to pray. I have been praying and I see a leader sitting on a seat. Three were taken out of the four legs of the seat and I saw this leader still sitting and didn’t fall. I don’t know how he managed to remain seated.”
This prophecy was fulfilled on Thursday, 26th of October 2017. The country of Kenya was enmeshed in brouhaha over who takes over its helm of affairs as the first election conducted a month earlier was annulled by the Supreme Court and a fresh one declared. True to his words, President Kenyatta was declared winner again.
On 22nd of January, during a live service, Bro. Joshua Iginla gave a word of prophecy concerning a Nigerian domestic airline.
In his words "I saw myself standing by a domestic airline, and while it was about to take off, there was an attempt to crash the airline.”
This prophecy came to pass on April 18th when a major tragedy was averted after an Aero Contractors’ flight from Port Harcourt headed for Lagos suffered a mechanical fault 20 minutes after takeoff.
From the video shared on the social media, the cabin filled up with smoke and distressed passengers expressed fear – many were heard praying, while others wept. Fortunately, the aircraft landed safely.
Early March 2017, roughly one week before the return of President Muhammadu Buhari from his first medical trip, Bro. Joshua Iginla, during his church services gave a word of advice to the Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari to take good care of his health before returning. He prophesied about President Buhari rushing home to Nigeria without proper medical approval. In his words “I have a message for our president. The Lord says he should take care of his health.
“Do not allow politicians to use your life to play politics. It’s only the living that can rule Nigeria. I saw a vision where people hurried him to wear the boot and come home only for him to be rushed back.
“The reason is because there was an unfinished business medically. Let your persecutors persecute you and say whatever they want to say but make sure you give your health attention. It’s only the living that rules. The throne is yours and nobody can occupy it. That’s why you must stay alive.”
This prophecy was fulfilled on Sunday 7th May, 2017 as President Buhari jetted back to London for medical treatment the second time. He spent only 58 days in Nigeria before rushing back.
On 30th April 2016, Bro. Joshua Iginla prophesied that he saw the ruling party in Angola retaining the presidential seat.
"I still see the ruling party succeeding and being on the throne," he had said.
Confirming this prophecy, on 24th of August 2017, Joao Lourenco of the Angola ruling party (MPLA) emerged winner of presidential election.

On the 13th August 2017, in a live service, Bro. Joshua Iginla gave a word of prophecy on South Korea, North Korea and American battle, speaking specifically about the North Korea missile launch and reactions that would follow.
According to him, ‘’I see South Korea, North Korea and America trying to be a referee. We need to be careful. I see North Korea doing something of insult to America and for ego, there might be retaliation.
“There’s something North Korean president wants to do. It’s not a threat, I see something coming out. Why will it be an international insult? Why is there going to be a retaliation? This is what we should pray against. What the North Korea man has gathered isn’t ordinary. We need peace and we should pray for peace.’’
In confirmation, On August 28, 2017, news reports had it that North Korea had launched a missile attack against Japan. In reaction to this, Japanese prime minister said he had spoken by telephone with President Trump. “Japan and the U.S. stance are completely matched,” he said, adding that they discussed ways to tighten pressure on North Korea.’
