Makandiwa rocks Harare

HARARE - Zimbabwe's capital, Harare, turned into a boom city yesterday, with Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa’s Judgement Night 2 at the National Sports Stadium being the major draw card.

Makandiwa, a larger-than-life preacher, whose church attracts 50 000 worshippers weekly, started pulling in crowds into the mega stadium as early as 9am yesterday for an event officially scheduled to start at 8pm last night.

Seeking prosperity and life-changing spiritual experiences, visitors flocked to the 60 000-seater stadium from around the country and globe, with enterprising Harare residents transforming the stadium and its environs into a hotbed of business.

Conspicuous outside the stadium was the first family’s Alpha and Omega trucks that disgorged their dairy products for sale. 

Zimbabwe Republic Police officers helped control traffic and the crowd, with police dogs on standby, while parking largely controlled by church security.

UFIC double deck buses and haulage trucks went around Harare taking guests to the venue while commuter omnibuses made a killing ferrying the rest of the public to the National Sports Stadium.

Everyone arriving at the stadium was being given a ticket for enumeration purposes.

By yesterday afternoon, traffic swirled around the Chinese-built stadium, with delegates pouring in en-masse for the service. The level of expectation among people in the terraces was amazing, with many singing and blowing whistles.

By 4pm, the stadium was already full to the rafters.

As dusk set in, cars continued streaming in.

Dubbed “Free At Last”, organisers said those in bondage were set to be set free.

UFIC spokesperson and senior pastor Prime Kufa said miracles would be witnessed at the event and lives would surely be transformed, with many set to witness the visible manifestation of the power of God.

“Free at last is free from bondage and anything hindering progress and prosperity, be it witchcraft or demons,” Kufa said ahead of the mega event.

“The man of God (Makandiwa) said people should expect to hear the word because it is through the word that miracles emanate from and wonders manifest. Wonders and signs shall be witnessed.”

South African gospel music star Deborah Fraser arrived in Harare on Friday and local acts Mahendere Brothers, Gospel Power, Pastor Charamba and his wife Olivia, Diva Mafunga, Joyce Simeti, Pastor Hubert C, Minister Mahendere, UFIC Choir and Sebastian Magacha were also due to perform last night.

The prayer session was  expected to attract more than 150 000 people, including foreigners. More space, dubbed “overspill spots” were created for the overwhelming numbers outside the stadium, where congregants were following proceedings on giant TV sets. At the B Arena, huge overflow tents were erected for the biggest gathering of Christians in Zimbabwe so far.

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

The 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.

Follow only our Lord Jesus Christ and He will show you what this guy and many others truly are - prophets of darkness/enemies of Christ/anti-Christs who work with people's enemies/tormentors to destroy true followers of Christ. They pretend to be workers of Christ in public; however, in the spiritual world, they cannot stand the presence of the Light (Christ) - they flee just as their father (satan) does. In'anga chaidzo these guys. Their anointing is from man, not from our Eternal Father Jesus Christ. Ties, scarves, handkerchiefs etc which many of these so-called prophets use are instruments of magic - (just as the Bible says in Ezekiel 13: verse 19-21). e.g. ties will spiritually be snakes - a source of evil power (Physically it will look like a proper tie, but spiritually you will see a snake). In the same way, outside they appear to be preaching about Jesus but spiritually they will be preaching about their father -satan! They are true prophets of baal (not of the God of our Lord Jesus Christ). Lord Jesus Christ, open the eyes of Your people so that they see through Your eyes; expose these wolves in sheepskins for what they are and bring Your people to Yourself. Amen and Amen. (Revelation 19: 10-21); (Revelation 16:13-14); (1Kings 18: 36-40).

".......For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ........And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgement of the great day; ...........Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah. ....., while they feast with you without fear, serving ONLY themselves. THEY ARE clouds without water, carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots; raging waves of the sea, foaming up their own shame; wandering stars for whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever. Now Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about these men also saying, 'Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of His saints, to execute judgement on all, to convict all who are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners have spoken against Him.' These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling WORDS, flattering people to gain advantage. But you beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: how they told you there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit. ..........Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy, to God our Saviour, Who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever." Amen and Amen. Jude 1: 1-25.

I have never seen anything of this kind in my life. Thank you Jesus for blessing the work of Prophet Makandiwa. The sick were healed, the blind gained sight and the weak were strengthened. I also thank our spiritual father Victor Boateng for gracing the judgement night. Surely the place was fille dwith the holy spirit of God. — Hamilton

“False teachers appeared in the past among the people, and in the same way false prophets will appear among you. They will bring in destructive, untrue doctrines, and will deny the Master who redeemed them, and so they will bring upon themselves sudden destruction. Even so, many will follow their immoral ways; and because of what they do, others will speak evil of the Way of truth. In their greed, these false teachers will make a profit out of telling you made-up stories. For a long time now their Judge has been wide awake! God did not spare the angels who sinned, but threw them in hell, where they are kept chained in darkness (dark pits), waiting for THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT. God did not spare……, but brought the flood on the world of godless people; the only ones He saved were Noah, who preached righteousness, and seven other people. God condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, destroying them by fire and made them an example of what will happen to the godless. ….…….These false prophets are bold and arrogant, they show no respect for the glorious beings above; instead, they insult them.” 2 Peter 2: 1-10.

Only The Truth Will Set You Free! John 8:31-32 - 20 April 2014

“……..But these people act by instinct, like wild animals born to be captured and killed; ………They will be destroyed like wild animals, and they will be paid with suffering for the suffering they have caused. Pleasure for them is to do anything in broad daylight that will satisfy their bodily appetites; ……They lead weak people into a trap. Their hearts are trained to be greedy. They are under God's curse! They have left the straight path and have lost their way; they have followed the path taken by Balaam son of Boer, who loved the money he would get for doing wrong and was rebuked for his sin. His donkey spoke with a human voice and stopped his insane action. These people are like dried up springs, like clouds blown along by a storm; God has reserved a place for them in the deepest darkness. ………..THEY PROMISE THEM FREEDOM WHILE THEY THEMSELVES ARE SLAVES OF DESTRUCTIVE HABITS – for a person is a slave of anything that has conquered him. If people have escaped from the corrupting forces of the world through their knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and then are again caught and conquered by them, such people are in a worse state at the end than they were in the beginning………” 2 Peter 2: 11-22.

Thank oyu Prophet Makandiwa for your judgement night, it has enabled us to sell our goods to his many followers. It provided an ideal opportunity for us to improve our sales. We support you and we will continue to support you if you launch another judgement night. Thank you!

I am sorry but this is a sign of desperation. In the midst of extreme poverty people of Zimbabwe are looking up to makandiwa for hope unsure where the next meal is going to come from whilst he and his cronies rack in millions in 'tithes and offerings'. The only positive that could be drawn out of this is that Zimbabweans no longer look up to extremely corrupt politicians who exploit, abuse and use them before they disappear until the next election. All the same religiously following Makandiwa doctrine will end in vain for most Zimbabweans if they don't work for themselves. This not worshiping God, This is a cult out to benefit from the poor and the desperate. Until the working class of Zimbabwe, the povo rises up en mass to push for change in the way we are governed Zimbabwe is forever doomed. For years we were blindly following the Zanu PF black empowerment mantra whilst they loot the countrys resources left right and centre, Then came the strategically clueless Tsvangirayi who thinks he can bring prosperity to Zimbabwe by merely churning out slogans at rallies. As if that was not enough, now we have this Makandiwa guy, Zanu PF love him because he has given people false hope that mana will fall from heaven straight into their pockets, masking zanu pf catastrophic governance in the process.

To this is a money making event which Bob and Grace have joined as they had their dairy products on sell and i hope they were other products that Makandiwa and team pushed as well. May Zimbos catch a work up and start using their brains wisely instead of showing these desperation signs and hoping that manna will come freely from heaven. May you enjoy the time and make other people filthy rich while you donate your hard earned money.

Vana 'only the truth will make yo free', and GR8ZIMBO, you seem to be critising only hey. If you can't beat them, join them. Ndimi mune confusion. Pray and God will reveal to you important information than what you are doing. you seem to be talking out of hatred. I thank God for prophet Makandiwa.

Spongebob - 20 April 2014

People hear me. You are not there to believe in Makandiwa but in God almighty. You must seek to kmow God and not Makandiwa. He is only there to to guide you. If you dont believe him then dont follow his teachings but dont try to discourage those who believe in his teachings. Be guided by the bible and not by man, pray that God will give you wisdom to know the difference. Its about God not Makandiwa. Seek God while you still have the time. There will come a time when you will look for him but it will be too late. The bible has got all the answers you need

To: Only the Truth will set you free - shame on you, why do you want to look down upon the Lord, we know the Almighty Living God, God of the Bible to an all powerful God, an all knowing God who can do the impossible and unbelievable who is always amazing and we have come to truly know him through his servant Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa. But it seems to you that the devil is more powerful than your God what type of god do you worship who is overpowered by the devil. Ain't you ashamed of yourself coming in the open that your god is not able but the devil. If your god is of low standard like that then all people will run to the devil. I think YOU ARE AN ANTICHRIST with the way you are looking down upon the power of God I THINK YOU WANT TO MARKET TE DEVIL manje sorry you were judged and we have caught you son of the devil. Getaway.

MAKANDIWA IS A PROFITEER. NOTE THAT THERE IS NOTHING TANGIBLE . HE SAID. SORRY TO THE GULLIBLE PEOPLE WHO ATTENDED HIS JUDGEMENT NIGHT 2 . WHAT HAPPENED TO JUDGEMENT 1? AS FOR THE MERCENARY JOURNALISTS , THEY SHOULD HIDE IN SHAME FOR INCREDIBLY INFLATING THE NUMBERS THAT ATTENDED THE JUDGEMENT 2. ZIMBABWEANS AND OTHERS AT THE EVENT DID NOT SEE ANY MIRACLES SO THEY WERE FOOLED.

AMAI - 25 April 2014

I would like to share with you some biblical way of finding out true or false teachers/phrophets: The first step is: "By their fruits ye shall know them." Jesus warned against false prophets, saying, "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves" (Matt. 7:15). 2 PETER 2:1-3 1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

Muprofita - 25 April 2014

The second step in judging prophecy is: "Does it glorify Christ?" Jesus, speaking of the Holy Spirit, said, "He shall glori-fy me...." (John 16:14). If the prophet is right and if the prophecy is right, they will testify of Jesus. However, if it attracts attention to man, it's wrong, for Jesus said, "He shall glorify me."

Muprofita - 25 April 2014

The third step in judging prophecy is to ask, "Does it agree with the Scriptures?" Step number four is to ask, "Are their prophecies ful-filled?" DEUTERONOMY 18:20-22 20 But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die. 21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken? 22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him. Saka vadikanwi tisaite chivi chekutukana nekudada shoko raMwari ndiro rinotipa direction, hanzi God first and all else shall follow.

It was sometime in June / July 2011 nd wz working at some place. It was around 3 to 4 pm and wanted to rush to some hospital for the evening visiting hour where my wife was admitted after an operation in the womb for fibroids. as I was abt to leave to get a lift into town, a fellow work mate advised me to ask for a lift from "someone" who had visited our work place nd this person was abt to leave for town. Lol and this person was one of the prophets and at that time I totally had nothing to do or believe this prophet for I "heard" the criticism and suspicion that these people were fake e.t.c, He gave me the lift nd we discussed nothing about the Word in the car. I went my way nd he went his way. After coming from the hospital, I just said to myself let me look for one or two of the messages for this man and hear what king of gospel or 'Good news' does he preach. I couldn't find the messages quick enough. HEAR THIS! For fear of being deceived I prayed to God to be enlightened in these matters and guess what! God sent His angel to speak to me in a dream! It was not as you think, it was a clear message to explain the role of a prophet, and what I was supposed to do. The angel of the Lord simply opened scripture- 2 Chronicles 20 vs 20. I had never had an encounter of that nature in all my life. it was a difficult scripture to understand but as far as I understood it, God has done great and tremendous things in my life- speaking to me the same way He spoke on that day- today I love and glorify our Lord Jesus Christ, he is un-containable, indescribable, ready to open new chapters and verses in your life the very day YOU wil decide to open chapters and verse in His Holly Bible. I believe the prophet, and I believe Jesus Christ of Nazareth even MORE! If you don't believe the prophets, I beg you to at least the Word of GOD. For ever and ever until all the ever and evers are finished. May God bless you as He is doing in my life.

My Testimony - 26 April 2014

I note a figure of 160K being dropped as the attendance - so the pitch and the overflow areas had 100k people? The stadium is a 60K capacity.
