You can't fight God — Magaya

HARARE - Walter Magaya of Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries (PHD) claims that some shadowy people are trailing congregants that would have testified in his church urging them to denounce him as a fake prophet who uses demonic powers to perform miracles.

Magaya said this during a big Sunday service which was attended by tens of thousands yesterday.

The Harare prophet, who is becoming increasingly popular with Zimbabwe’s prayerful society, said he had received seven cases of congregants who had been trailed after giving testimonies.

Magaya said his church would soon launch an investigation to unmask the people behind the smear campaigns.

“Who has ever fought God and won? Why are these people making an effort of fighting God?” Magaya said adding that; “They are after your testimonies, they don’t want people to testify.

“I am aware of seven such cases that have been brought to our attention.
We will require all the details so that we can make a follow up.”

The PHD leader said this after a 29-year-old woman had given a testimony about how she was taken by mermaids that gave her powers to seduce men when she was 13.

The woman identified as Charity Makurumidze of Harare said; “I was given powers to seduce men and beads to make them weak. I would target wealthy men and once they gave me money, I would take it to the waters every Friday and give it to the mermaids.

“We would then take all the wealth of the men and leave them broke. I only stopped doing this in 2008 when I discovered that the men did not have money anymore due to the economic problems.

“When I stopped, I was introduced to the apostolic sect and I started praying for people. However, I started bleeding because the Queen and King in water were not happy. I was bleeding for the past five years. I was using $200 for sanitary ware every month.” 

Makurumidze said she has since stopped bleeding attributing this to God’s work through Magaya. 

However, Makurumidze said after she testified in church and was placed on the holy ground some unidentified men offered her cash to denounce Magaya.

“They offered me $100 000 and to buy me a car and a house if I could just say I was in love with Magaya and what he was doing was fake. I refused their bait because I know Prophet Magaya is a man of God,” she said.

Meanwhile, Emma Chirebvu, 37, a former commercial sex worker testified that she had been HIV positive for two years but she was healed.

“I started using anointing oil and my cervical cancer and pain went away. I kept on using the anointing oil and I was healed of HIV. I am now HIV negative,” she said.

Magaya told his congregants that the big Sunday was meant to bring deliverance to born again Christians and others who had heard about all the miracles in the Bible.

“You have heard many miracle stories in the Bible but these miracles are not happening to you. I want you to be delivered today,” Magaya said.

Congregants from some southern African countries including Botswana, South Africa and Namibia gathered at PHD  Ministries church in Waterfalls yesterday to receive deliverance and listen to Magaya prophesying during the big Sunday ceremony.

Popular musicians Nicholas Madzibaba Zacharia  and Alan Chimbetu and the church band kept the bumper crowd entertained.

Magaya grew up in Chitungwiza and is married to Tendai Katsiga-Magaya who is a banker by profession and together they have been blessed with two children.

Magaya is Nigerian Prophet TB Joshua’s spiritual son.

Magaya insists that he is not the healer saying Jesus Christ is the healer while he is just a vessel being used to do God’s work.

Prophet Magaya, better not waste your time to investigate this or that in quest to expose those who may be against you & the Ministry. It is a fact that most of front runner critics are those whose Ministries the Spirit does not move~gathering of philosophers. I know of many who preach that T B Joshua is a satanist. Prophet T B Joshua is the most persecuted Prophets on this planet, so dont bother but pray for those persecute you!

CT - 7 July 2014

@ CT - But this has gone a step further. These people are not attacking Prophet Magaya directly but are frustrating the congregants and threatening to kidnap those who give testimonies. Hazvingasiiwi zvakadaro. They are frustrating innocent souls. There is need to have them protected. Yeku Nigeria yawapa as example they were fighting Prophet TB Joshua and not tracking down his congregants threatening them. Yes he will pray but the law must take its course. Mbiri kunani. Hokoyo satan!!!

This is the evil finger of CIO. The devil is behind this Magaya. Just offer that prayer and ask God to deal with them once and for all. Have them die the death so that people learn NOT to blaspheme God. “They offered me $100 000 and to buy me a car and a house if I could just say I was in love with Magaya and what he was doing was fake. I refused their bait because I know Prophet Magaya is a man of God,” she said.

These are the last days spoken of by Prophet Joel. Prophetic Ministries are sprouting in this day because God's coming is nearing. You must have a spiritual eye and realise your time and your word for this season. We NEED more prophets and prophesy to destroy the kingdom of the DEVIL. Lets expose them by prayer Prophet Magaya!

Kana zviri zva Mwari hazvidi ma investigators iwayo. God Himself will handle issues that have anything to do with his works. Suppose the investigators identify the so called culprits what is Magaya going to do to them?

For too long l used to have a persist pain in chest stretching toward the heart. I visited several doctors and xray taken and medication given to avail. Ever since I started using anointing oil the problem has disappeared. Glory be to God. Continue with the good work man of God Prophet Magaya.

@ Clido - Did you get a helpful response for your concern. I do not think so. And do you know why - your issue is misdirected. The ministry should have prayerlines where you can call, ministry website, facebook page. That is where your issue could be addressed and not on this forum.
