I'm rich - Uebert Angel

GWERU - Flamboyant self-styled prophet Uebert Angel on Friday bragged about his wealth claiming, he is richer in Britain than in Zimbabwe.

The Spirit Embassy founder made a surprise visit at Midlands State University (MSU) during a students’ entrepreneurship symposium held at the institution’s great hall.

The symposium was chaired by the director of Institute of Directors Zimbabwe (IODZ), Chamu Chiwanza.

Angel claimed he owns an island in USA and a farm in Britain among various other companies overseas.

“Actually I am richer in Britain than in Zimbabwe because that is where most of my businesses are,” Angel said.

“You are poor because you are stupid. The demon of poverty rebels when its deliverer comes,” he added to wild cheers.

He rubbished the belief that men of God should be poor, saying he worked hard to amass his wealth.

“The moment people hear that a man of God is rich, you think the money is from Church,” he said adding he acquired his wealth through hard work.

“Hamuna chamati maona muchashamisika (You haven’t heard or seen anything yet, you will be amazed),” the charismatic preacher said.

“We have moved on, we are now doing miracle things. What makes you get rich or make money is the education these guys (lecturers) teach you,” said Angel.

He said most people think that he is boastful because of his wealth but he insisted that he is a hard worker.

“They say I am showing off. Emphatically yes,” Angel chuckled before he pledged to sponsor the school fees of three students present at the event.

The Daily News on Sunday witnessed hoards of desperate students raising their hands in anticipation to be beneficiaries of the scholarships.

He performed miracles and prophesied on a few selected students before his departure.

Angel hogged the limelight last year with his miracle money crusades, however, did not dare perform the “miracle” at MSU, saying he had not come for miracles.

He first performed the “miracle money crusade” in Botswana, a ‘miracle’ which was widely criticised by other members of the Christian community.

Angel was voted the most Influential Person in Africa this year and has grown in popularity since his return to Zimbabwe after a 13-year stint in the United Kingdom.

Recently, he courted controversy after claiming he had raised 24 people from the dead.

Angel wines and dines with the powerful on the continent.

He also caused a stir when the Daily News published pictures of him with former South African president and anti-apartheid icon Nelson Mandela.

He met Mandela in the company of his friend, popular preacher, Emmanuel Makandiwa.

I do not think it's right for this prophet to brag about what he has. It's immoral and what does he teach our society? If you are a man of GOD you should not be tomented by the evil people. They have tormented you to the extend of doing this??

The tithe merchant is rich not by hard work but by simply fleecing the poor of their hard earned cash.

Mweni Tafara - 21 October 2013

What is the difference between this money-boasting prophet and the money-boasting Chiyangwa? why doesn't this Zaka man just go into business straight without hiding behind some dubious religious project? Those who support him should be ashamed of a religious man who proudly boasts about having too much money while they wallow in poverty. Anybody who believes this man raised 24 people from the dead should have their head examined. They should know that in times of economic crisis, some people make money in abusing religion. The religious man should tell us how he makes his money, anyway, and his tax situation. Zvichabuda pachena umwe musi!

“You are poor because you are stupid. The demon of poverty rebels when its deliverer comes,” he added to wild cheers. Now you have it that is why he is rich, the congregation is stupid and he is clever and he is rich. Kangoma kana kave kuririsa kave kuda kubvaruka.

Cain killed his brother Abel because Abel has brought the right sacrifice before God so cain was jelous but God asked cain what he has done, upon realizing his sin cain was told that he is to be a vagabond(mutizi nemudzungairi panyika) be careful a u not a rich vagabond cain said his sin is too much for him he cried for protection from God(not repentance) he was given a seal of protection not seal of repentance) and the bible says he departed the presence of God.he built a city this means the town treasurer was his town clerk was his everything in that city was his but he wa an unrepentant murderer he was the first polligamist his who was similar to him sAID if anyone hurts me iwill revenge 7x7x7x7x7 more than cain cain was rich but he was not in the presence of god HE has rejected GOD SO BEING RICH DOES NOT MEAN ONE IS CLOSER TO GOD OR IS HOLY, CAIN A MURDER OWNED EVERY THING HE WANTED BUT HE MURDERED HIS BROTHER WHO HAS DONE THE RIGHT THING GOD OFFERED HIM TIME TO REPENT BUT CAIN REFUSED >>>CONCIDER THIS PROPHET ANGEL AND OTHERS RELIGION IS NOT GUESE WORK IT IS STRAIGHT FOWARD .

To the so called Prophet Angel and his followers I just want to ask this one question. Have you ever read these scriputres from your bibles. 1Ti 6:3 If any man teacheth a different doctrine, and consenteth not to sound words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; 1Ti 6:4 he is puffed up, knowing nothing, but doting about questionings and disputes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, 1Ti 6:5 wranglings of men corrupted in mind and bereft of the truth, supposing that godliness is a way of gain. 1Ti 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain: 1Ti 6:7 for we brought nothing into the world, for neither can we carry anything out; 1Ti 6:8 but having food and covering we shall be therewith content. 1Ti 6:9 But they that are minded to be rich fall into a temptation and a snare and many foolish and hurtful lusts, such as drown men in destruction and perdition. 1Ti 6:10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil: which some reaching after have been led astray from the faith, and have pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1Ti 6:11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

Was Jesus Christ rich or poor? Was Jesus Christ the Son of God?Did Jesus Christ die on the cross?

If any person claims to be anointed of God, or Prophet of God or Man of God it simply means that they are subject to the Bible Teaching. Therefore what they say or teach must confirm to this (Christian Constitution) Bible. The prophet cannot breach the clauses (verses) of the guiding document. If one breaches the written words, that is when they earn themselves the title False Prophet. A man of God should be teaching about righteousness, love, patience, meekness (humbleness) and any such attributes that money or riches cannot buy. Hence the constitution says 1Ti 6:11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.

Say What ?hate him or like him you are talking about him. Critics make a blockbuster which is what the persecutors of this man are doing. Jealous down this man is classy and trendy in his lifestyle. His businesses has got nothing to do with the church so i don't have anything to say about that . Watch Miracle TV and see how this man is used mightly by God.

The scripture 'touch not my anointed ones' does not apply in Urbert Angel's case since he is not a true anointed in the first place.

GOOD ADVICE: Do something for yourself. Don't waste your time talking politics while others are enjoying their lives with money without politics. See how this Zimbabawean poor woman became a millionaire just by buying and selling cheap artificial diamonds to young people in cities. Very interesting. Go to ARTIFDIAMONDS.COM to see the methods and companies she was using to do that. ARTIFDIAMONDS.COM . Wake up Africans

The elect will know false peophets. I liked this one. If you see people who defend these horror you rwally know very few are elect. Even if Jesus was rich where in the bible did he ever brag about the riches and why put Jesus' name in this satanist crusade. Zvinonzi don't judge but pane zviri so blatant kuti you cannot judge unofunga ndikakuona uchiba ndoti tosiira Mwari to judge, no you are wrong period, Angel is using imi vaakati stupid to get rich.

Jesus never bragged about riches but was there to save souls?

sefa - 23 October 2013

When Jesus speaks about judging the next person he does not say we must not charge, but he clearly says that before you point a finger at your brother, you yourself must not be guilty of a similar sin. Mat 7:1 "Judge not, lest you be judged. Mat 7:2 For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with what measure you measure, it will be measured back to you. Mat 7:3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do not notice the plank in your own eye? Mat 7:4 Or how will you say to your brother, 'Permit me to remove the speck from your eye'; and look, there is a plank in your own eye? Therefore Jesus our Lord expects his followers to stay clean so they can clearly see other peoples specks and help them.

why do you fight & defend for your pastor more than the defends you alter to JESUS..let facts crush with facts.

It is at times necessary to reserve our comments or criticism to things of the spiritual world which some of us do not have conrete & tangible evidence to support . Condemning or cursing any man of God is great sin but if you sure of that . My advice if you are not sure reserve your comments to be on a safe side like me I dont know . I am also bit worriedabt the rise in the number of churches these days especially in Zim when Zim we adopted the USdollar&rand.Even here in SA many churches are mushrooming everyday hammering so much on the gospel of prosperity ,riches, money businesses, nice houses, cars. etc .Congregants will be ululating,clappinghands, dancing ,screaming, shouting ecstatically as the preachers mention on those items .I still reserve my comments &I dont judge .
