Thousands besiege Angel, Makandiwa convention

HARARE - Zimbabwe's charismatic celebrity preachers Prophets Emmanuel Makandiwa and Eubert Angel opened the 2-day ManWorld Convention  at the City Sports Centre in Harare yesterday.

Attended by their spiritual godfather Victor Boateng, a Ghanaian preacher, the ManWorld convention attracted a bumper turnout of men only — one more indication of the youthful preachers’ enormous popularity.

Angel’s TV station Miracle TV has been advertising the highly-anticipated event that has drawn a capacity crowd of thousands of people.

With Boateng and the two youthful preachers in military fatigues, the dramatic posters of the three in photoshopped military attire have captured the nation’s imagination especially in Harare where the event is being hosted.

Organisers of the fiesta say the military attire is a statement that Christianity is like war.

One of the event organisers, Pastor Mike explained: “Christianity is a war…no wonder Apostle Paul urges all Christians to put on the whole armour of God, to withstand the fiery darts of the enemy.

“Besides, only brave men go to war to defend the weak and to defend what they believe in.

“War or the military challenges every soul and as Christians the battles lines were drawn when Christ died on the cross for us…for Christ says, he is not sending peace into the World but rather a Sword…”

This year’s Man World Convention dubbed “Strong men in tough times,” has attracted a lot of attention, especially given the tough economic situation Zimbabweans are faced with.

The congregants will be eagerly waiting to hear the lessons of the “Exodus”, which Boateng will deliver.
This year’s event will see delegates coming in from the USA, Canada, Australia, South America, India, UK, Ghana, Uganda, Kenya, Nigeria, Sudan, India, Japan and the rest of Africa.

Pastor Mike said: “The mood at last year’s Man World Convention resembled a Mega Feast, men spoiling themselves and getting drunk with the Holy Ghost.

“Religious literature and media reports suggested that it was arguably the first ever event in Zimbabwe where men gathered in such numbers to just love God.”

Daily issues such as business, marriage and the economy are being discussed at the convention.

The young, mega-rich pastors, both known to their flock as “Papa,” have become some of Zimbabwe’s most influential spiritual leaders. On any given day, they can draw thousands and thousands to their service.

Their fervent sermons, coupled with their magnetic personality, have turned their Pentecostal churches Spriit Embassy owned by Angel and the Makandiwa-led UFIC into some of the fastest-growing evangelical congregations in Zimbabwe.

Their numerous followers include national leaders, society’s well-heeled, as well as industry executives - many of whom often turn to them for advice.

Very sad for our country, people parading as saviors but ruining the hopes of our country in the name of saving them. My heart bleeds. When will our eyes open to see how poverty is used to make us poorer in the hope of going to heaven. God did not create us to suffer on earth to enrich a few tricksters. My heart bleeds.

The bible declares that my sheep hear my voice and a STRANGER they will not follow. Makandiwa is a stranger , so is Boateng and Angel.

The generation of today is blinded also like those pharisees who did not recognise Jesus yet they had law and prophets books with them.Today people read Mathew 24:24 as something different to these false christs who were said will deceive the very elect if it were posible.fortunately its impossible because we have the revelation of the truth.Woe to the blind who are calling other people 'papa' while Jesus said call noone father except God.They are being called 'young mega rich pastors'.There are Spiritual rich people in the Kingdom of God not physically rich people.

I am in deep anguish for the devil is right at our door step to lead everyone astray. I am crying for the daughter of Zion for failing to realize that our country is under siege by the agents of the devil in the trio. They are indeed the devil;s agents, we know them by thier fruits. they preach about the world gains, wealth, false religion. For how long Oh Lord Jesus shall you wait before you come for the rescue of your people. We need you Oh My Savior. Your people have been led astray. False prophets have arisen in our days, to lead everyone into abyss.

satan and his angels are not comfortable with the three men of God.even those messangers of darkness without christ on their hearts trying to descern the things of God they end up vomiting anger.descerning needs the spirit of God-one can not have the spirit of God without Jesus.most of the comments above are coming from anger AND ARE NOT FROM SPIRIT FILLED CHRISTIANS.But remmember there are no inbetweens its either you are of your father the devil or you belong to GOD.SO my question is are you the right person to test the spirits ?

John 14:27 Jesus says "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you". If there is a verse where Jesus said he brought the sword, and not peace, please let us share, as we learn that way. So much is happening so fast so we need to pray hard so we can see 'the truth, the way and the life'. Please take time to google using the following text about what is happening elsewhere: Uganda pastor denies miracle scam

maita manyuka let me put into your knowledge that its better to go where jesus is preached and prosperity/riches is encouraged than to go where Jesus is preached yet prosperity/riches are condemned.(thats the will of God.3John:2 and phillipians 4;19.) the samaritan woman went to fetch water but eventuary met entenal life.somebody will go to church because of a lady or a guy but who knows maybe thats ones calling.you cant judge. To gutsie even if we pray harder than we used to we may end up like a dog that runs after its own tail it wont catch up.Jesus said you shall know the trueth and it shall set you free.Romans 8;26 we dont know what we should pray for but the Spirit will help us if we are praying according to His will 1John5;14.

There is nothing wrong with being angry at these false prophets because I have close relatives who go there. At times I feel more than just angry because this is a matter of life and death. I'm sad my loved ones are being deceived. i'll do anything to make sure they see the light.

These gentlemen are leaders od cults, hence the blind following they get. Just the posters that appear like some kind of movie or wrestling, will alert any serious Christian kuti hazvisi zvaMwari wokudenga. Since when has the gospel been associated with worldly things. Elimas changed his name to 'Bar-Jesus' and the same applies to these false prophets TB Joshua, Emmanuel Makandiwa and Angel kana vanamadzibaba so and so. Ose mazita ebasa.

I wish above all that those who are so fond of speaking of any MOG must tek time to really study the person they want to attack or to teach the world against. It is that simple, zvausinga nzwisise nyarara, kuita Runyararo Primary school chaiyo, it saves both your time and some souls. Those who are following Jesus thru the churches led by these 3 great MOG are already converted and Jesus us being preached to them. Mabhawa achakawandisa, pfambi dzakawandisa, varoyi i jawi. Tadiiko taenda pamberi paJesu nezwi rimwe kuti tiihwe simba rekupara rekuparadza masvingo ewakaipa aya. You think u can turn pipo from going to church by a mere comment on a newspaper headline, think again. Stop preaching the converted!!!! God loves so do I.......

Mangoba mamamela do you know that the word of God say touch not my anointed and do my Prophets no harm.If you are Christian who are u to judge on what basis.Anywhere it doesn't amaze me because even Jesus was not accepted in his own home land yet he was a Prophet and God in human form.Elijah not accepted in Israel that's why God had to send him to a widow in Zarephath yet there were many in Israel and Elisha healed only Namman who was a Syrian yet there were many leppers in Israel.All because they did believe that God can raise a man amongst men to speak with the voice of God.Kana mwari ada nezvakonhasi vanoshamisika vanhu woporofita cherowaitadza sei.My word of advice to you is siyana nezveProphetic kana usingainzwisise ungazvidenhera Hondo yedenga inounza udyi nekuti ungati urikutuka maProphets yet uri kutuka namwari wacho akatuma Prophet.So be wise .
