150 000 expected at Makandiwa's Judgement Night

HARARE - More than 150 000 people, including foreigners, are expected to attend Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa’s “Judgement Night” prayer session at the National Sports Stadium on April 19.

Makandiwa, a popular preacher with a huge following throughout the country and on the continent, announced at a recent church service that this year’s Judgement Night would surpass the previous one held two years ago.

The United Family International Church (UFIC) leader said this would be a ground-breaking session which he believes would bring in new developments in a country battered by acute economic difficulties.

Said Makandiwa: “God has finally remembered our nation and remarkable things are going to happen after this. Zimbabwe has never experienced anything like it before.”

Makandiwa preaches during a church service at the National Sports Stadium.

Last year, Judgement Night was cancelled at the last minute after administrators of the venue drilled holes in Makandiwa’s plans by making too many demands which the church could not meet.

A spokesperson for the church, Prime Kufakunesu, said this year’s event would be bigger than the one held in 2012 judging by the response they were getting from the public.

“Judgement Night is an all night prayer session where Prophet Makandiwa will take time to defeat dark forces which bring ills like bareness, poverty, sicknesses, conflict, failures in the lives of the people.

“Judgement Night has grown in popularity among UFIC church members and Christians from other churches. We have received inquiries from people as far as the United Kingdom, South Africa, Malaysia, Uganda, from Botswana, South Africa, Namibia, Ghana, Nigeria and many other parts of the world.

“We urge our visitors from out of town to quickly make bookings because hotels will be fully booked,” said Kufakunesu.

He did not reveal what miracles Makandiwa would perform but emphasised that “tremendous things are going to happen and the nation should be ready.”

Already, people have started speculating about “the tremendous things” expected during Judgement Night with most followers saying that Makandiwa could make a prophecy that might change the country’s political landscape. But others are speculating about economic fortunes turning around while others are predicting social changes to the country.

UFIC officials have however decided to keep people in suspense and guessing as they are not revealing the major developments  Makandiwa is going to foretell.

"God has finally remembered our nation and remarkable things are going to happen after this". Really, Makandiwa? I thought good things occur every other day. It seems Makandiwa will start pointing at every good thing that would happen after his "judgement night" and claim all the credit. It's unethical, if not criminal, conduct.

We only know of one judgement to come and this will be done by Jesus Christ. Bhururu yako iyi ndeipi? Instructions on judgement are very clear, 'do not judge least your Father in haeven will judge you'. Chako bhururu chin'anga ichi, this is satanism and the devil will never be like Jesus Christ. Judgement is for Jesus Christ only. Multitudes shall be deceived and perish. N'anga dzinotishupa dzichifembera bhora, kupitsika kwemadziro, now economy, vamwe dhisiri; sorry maningi.

The god of the christian bible is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction. Jealous and proud of it, a pity, unjust, unforgiving, control freak. A vindictive, blood thirsty, ethnic cleanser. A misogynistic, homophobic, racist. Infanicidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent, bully.

Zimbabwe is facing economic challenges, which we expect Prophet Makandiwa to deal with, as he prays for Zimbabwe. Homosexuals will repent after the Prophet`s prayer and we expect politicians to come in the open, to worship God. It is indeed a miracle we are going to witness

Judgement Night is not about judging people, but it is an opportunity for deliverance from poverty, sickness, lack of faith, sin etc. These are the things that will be judged and chased from people's lives. Noone ever said this is Judgement Day for sinners, but Judgement Night for sins and demons. If you have demons, they will be judged out of your life. So celebrate. But if you are the demon, you will be judged and chased out that night. Cry.

Viva Prophet Makandiwa, viva the greatest conference of the year! A gathering of Christians at one place all worshipping God, 150 000 is no joke. Only God can allow such. Judgement night! where poverty, disease, bondage is going to end....Can't wait. Long live Prophet Makandiwa

for Jesus - 2 April 2014

@ Tsikamutanda, its mind boggling your fascination about a man of God you don't believe in, you always read about him and always post nasty comments. This is exactly what the Pharisees and Sadducees did, though they did not believe in Jesus they were always around Him to criticize and persecute Him. You have fallen victim to media reports who have published his prophecies but for some reason known only to them they do not publish when these miracles actually take place. Come and judge for yourself on the 19th April whether the Prophet is fake or not. Meanwhile read Isaiah 6:9

for Jesus - 2 April 2014

The bible thumping thief is propheting to profit from the desperation that these hard times bring;Go all ye so foolish to believe in false miracles and thou shall be relieved of dollars.But really, l admire this con man called Makandiwa...

unotsamweyi wanzwa kuti "Prophet Makandiwa will take time to defeat dark forces which bring ills like bareness, poverty, sicknesses, conflict, failures in the lives of the people." kasi you are son of the devil. the only spirit i know which is against the prosperity and well being of humans is the devil and his followers. QUESTION? are you one of the follower of devil? Zimbabwe has finally been remembered and Prophet makandiwa being used by the Almighty will usher a new season in this beloved country. we all need hope and its in our midst. pasi newe negative comments, you benefit in the suffering of people.

@mascara- baseless argument. Why do you call the miracles , false? We need evidence to believe you. Anyway , am not surprised , you inherited your behaviour from your forefathers Pharisees and Saducees who even questioned the Messianic of Jesus Christ. Haters will always be there but mugovadii ,baba vangu

@mascara be very careful with your choice of words, kana uri munhu akaenda kuchikoro youshould know that its not wise to publicly attack someone or something you don't believe in yet you don't have facts. Show us the evidence kuti people are being ripped off their hard earned monies. My father sustains people's livelihoods from his own pocket and also sustains the ministry because the multitudes cant sustain it! be wise get your facts straight before you embarrass yourself.

for Jesus - 2 April 2014

@Chindondova do not attack a principle that you do not understand. Do you even read your bible? God is a giver He gave us Christ! Christians should also give. Ananias & Saphira died for misrepresentation over their own gift. Get facts about giving to God before you attack. No one is held at gunpoint to give in UFI, those who don't want or don't have do not give. Come and see for yourself

for Jesus - 2 April 2014

@Tsikamutanda- 2kings 2:19-22, If these elders had not approached Elisha for the healing of their waters , Elisha was going to leave the town without healing the waters. If you were humble enough , the prophet would have addressed your questions. But without doubt ,you ask with sarcasm. Anyway , you are not worthy to argue with because even your language on public forums like these ,is uncalled for. But unfortunatelY , you cant stop God to move ,because you hate Prophet E Makandiwa. Things will happen , come 19th April. Unongopfuurawo nepo, uone zvinenge zvichiitwa na Mwari anoshumirwa na baba vedu. Hololo

@Chokwadi- my wish for you , is to live what you preach. You are condemning kutukana and yet your post is full of hurt to the extent of asking us , whom we serve as if you have other thoughts about the God we serve. We serve the Almighty God. UFIC haisiriyo yakatanga ne advertising , it happens in all other churches, so whats your problem. Because its UFIC?Dai kuporesa varwere nhasi, iri mhosva, ko Jesu nevadzidzi ,vaiponeserei , vakadii kuti muchapona pandichadzoka. Hamheno ,mirirai rugare rwuchauya, isu totofanogarika pano, kumberiyo ,tichigarikazve. Honestly , judgement night is not being imposed on people to come , let those who want to attend , do so, zvaizokunakirawo dai wauya,waonawo kuti pano pasi unokwanisa kutogara usina zvirwere , uchifara. Then you would also confirm the God that we serve.

@homosapien. Your statements are the most breathtakingly blasphemous that I have ever personally witnessed. I am no saint but I would tremble and fear to issue such judgment against My Lord and God. It is quite obvious that you are an intelligent person, so how come you do not ?

God has remembered this nation through His servant Prophet E Makandiwa. When God answers prayers , He gives a person and in this nation ,a Prophet has been sent.We are in the days of Pophet E Makandiwa. @Vonai God judges using people in His office so all diseases ,lack , bareness willbe judged though Prophet E Makandiwa

People are missing the great miracles which they need in their lives by criticizing this man, it happened even during the times of Jesus people criticized and hated him to the extend of crucifying him........

Clemence - 3 April 2014

@Chokwadi, its surprising how you expect vana vaProphet Makandiwa to keep quiet when their father's name is being massacred by people who don't even know him on the net! Maybe its because you have never come across some stranger insulting your Pastor, ukanyarara then wasiyanei neari kutuka Pastor vako? Manga majaira kutaura zvamunoda about the Prophet pasina anokupai ma facts, manje isu vana vacho tiripo & haitisi kuzonyarara because Baba vedu vakatidzidzisa kuda Mwari zvechokwadi & we have testimonies in all sectors of our lives.

@Patricia the mind is very powerful, if you use it to imagine false things such as the ones you have stated you will begin to see them, they are called dillusions.
