A twin bomb blast near the finishing line of the Boston Marathon
The leader and founder of the The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), TB Joshua prophesied about the Boston bombings early this year.
The prophet, in a repeated broadcast of a January 19, 2013 sermon shown on a Christian telvision station called Emmanuel TV, told his congregation to pray and fast for America because he had seen flames and bombings in parts of that nation.
He further stated that he had seen “massacre in a gathering of people in America” and warned that such gatherings should be avoided or be “well-secured”.
“I want you to fast and pray for that nation, America. I see bombings roaming inside [the country]…” he told the congregation.
"Their homeland security should be tight, tight, tight," he stressed.
Three people were killed, including an eight-year-old boy, and more than 170 got injured when a twin bomb blast near the finishing line of the Boston Marathon Monday.
United States President Barrack Obama has condemned the bombings, describing it as a "terrorist act".
The FBI has begun investigations into the incident but does not yet known who the culprits are or their motive.
According to the BBC, the FBI has said there are no "known additional threats" to Boston.
