False Prophecies Misleading Zimbabweans
The era of fake prophets and prophecies has become prevalent in today’s society as Zimbabweans flood various churches to mainly receive miracles, as they believe miracles will solve all their hardships. Do people believe that religion can resolve all their problems? Or they just want some sort of reassurance that everything will be all right
Prominent figures in the country have advised fake prophets to stop their shenanigans as they are giving false hope to citizens.
Vice President Chiwenga warned fake prophets yesterday while addressing Christians at his rural homestead in Hwedza who came to pray with him, following his discharge from the hospital. He was being treated after he was affected by the White City bombing incident.
“ The era of fake prophets who hide behind the name of God to attack the national leadership and extort money from the public has ended”, said VP Chiwenga. He also mentioned that citizens of Zimbabwe should work towards making the nation desirable to all.
Former president Robert Mugabe also urged Zimbabweans to be careful of fake prophets and false prophecies back in 2011, speaking at the burial of retired general Solomon Mujuru. He spoke briefly about the high number of pastors in the country that claim they can do prophecy and are being received with tremendous enthusiasm and excitement, yet they are leading people astray and robbing them of their dollars.
As said in the bible, “For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.” Luke 8:17
Prophets who have made false prophecies are being exposed and everything is coming out into the light. During the period of the 2018 harmonised election, there were a number of prophecies about who would win the presidential election. Brother Howard Nyoni took to social media Twitter, talking of prophets for allegedly misleading the nation such as Canada based Tom Tirivangani who prophesied a Nelson Chamisa win but that was not true.
United Family International Church (UFIC) leader Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa and his wife Ruth are involved in a $6,5 million law suit over an alleged false prophecy. Former congregants Upenyu Mashangwa and his wife allegedly fell prey to a prophecy which promised them a ‘debt cancellation miracle’.
Is it safe to say Zimbabweans are now realizing that not all prophecies come to pass?
