Angel rocks South Africa

HARARE - Popular Zimbabwean preacher and founder of Spirit Embassy Church, Uebert Angel last week rocked South Africa where he preached his controversial brand of gospel he calls “good news” to a packed Mt Zion, Beula Park Conference Centre in Germiston and at Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.

After a year of negative publicity in which he was also accused of buying an improperly imported car, Angel, who is now based in the United States where among his followers are entertainment gurus, the flamboyant preacher is said to have put up a good show.

A church official, Tendai Mhlanga who attended the show last Friday, said: “Prophet Angel has withstood all the attacks and continues to rock believers and non-believers alike with a brand of revelatory gospel some describe as very controversial but hugely scholarly and intelligible.

“The overflow crowds showing up to hear Angel preaching are a testament not only to his current popularity but the practicality of his teachings as he spreads the good news that is the Word of God.”

“Tens of thousands of people filled Mt Zion, Beula Park Conference Centre, so much so the meeting had to be held in the open air space with three football size grounds acting as overflows at the venue, with people occupying the hill and crowds of those unable to fit into venue stretching back for kilometres along the road outside the venue.”

Voted as Zimbabwe’s most flamboyant male at the recently held Zimbabwe Model Awards 2015 and his outreach in Africa, Europe and now the US where he is based, church members who attended the South Africa events said Angel did Zimbabwe proud.

Angel also preached at Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg, for what was dubbed “The Encounter” conference.

“So popular was the Encounter South Africa conference, the crowd controlling agents, JOC who work under the auspices of South African Police Services (Saps), sold tickets as a crowd control measure.

“Tickets were limited to one per person per day. Officials at the event expressed disappointment at the fact that JOC imposed a fee to the event which was advertised as a free entry event in order to control the number of people and avoid a disaster in the wake of the TB Joshua building collapse in Nigeria few months ago.

“Many who had gone without tickets were disheartened when they were turned away at the gates, much to the disappointment of the organisers who had hoped that all and sundry would come to see, hear and be blessed by the much loved prophet of good news, Uebert Angel,” said another Spirit Embassy official, Tamuka Mukoko.

Mukoko claimed Angel’s success has not been welcomed by some even within the Christian family.

“We are damaging ourselves in the Christian circles. We hear within the Christian circles that the real stirrers of Angel’s troubles are well known men of God, who are enraged by his seemingly unstoppable progress,” said Mukoko.

The Daily News efforts to get a comment from Angel have all been in vain as he maintains a strict code of a media blackout.

My life prospered the day I met this amazing man of God. He selflessly poured out of himself a divine nature into my life. Moreover at great cost to himself he mentored me from his vast wisdom in Christ. My life is positively impacted because of his love. I adopted the "Angel " name as my very own. Simply because people are unable to do the supernatural that God uses him to do they fear him and the slander against him is borne of that fear. Moreover he lives a supernatural life in prayer and moving in realms that few understand. Like in the time of Jesus Christ, he was crucified because of his greatness and life in the miraculous. I walk in the same amazing grace because of Prophet Angel. The world will still witness much greatness at his hands through God. I call him Dad.

I feel sorry for pple who jump to wrong conclusion over things they know nothing abt. It takes the grace of God to appreciate the things of God and the people of God. While Jesus was God in person, they refused him because God's grace was not extended to them. i was born in a Christian family (pentecoastal) and was schooled of the ways of God very early. To tell yu the truth while I had had encounters with the whole spirit and the presence of God, it was not until Prophet Angel ministered to people around me and me that I appreciated another level of God's presence. The encounter I had with God through this man was just amazing. He ministered to me and i instantly understood that God is love.He exudes amazing love and grace when he ministers to yu, yu forget abt everything else and just want to thank God, yu will understand why God is love. It was just amazing to even witness God changing people's life in an instant. The blind who had lived their life asking where is God, receiving instant sight and thanking God like mad man for t, frends who had gone for 4 yrs without Children receiving the fruit of the womb, the joy on a mother's face whose child had been healed, parents and children reunited after being lost. I wish I could really explain to you but some experiences you only need to go thru them to understand. I hope one day God will grant yu the grace to experience his true presence.

Personally Prophet Angel has given me 2 direct prophecies as a congregant - he revealed the deepest family secrets that have been tormenting us for years which we have now worked on as a family in prayer and we are now free ( My parents, brothers and sisters are now truly born again. One of my family members had a mental health problem and now they are totally healed. The were on psychotic drugs for 4 years but not anymore thank you Jesus. Recently the Prophet posted another direct accurate prophecy via a social network link therefore directing me on how I should walk (yet he does not know me personally - am just a congregant. " I was shocked at how God is using this man). He has also mentored pastors in church who by the same Jesus pray for us and things happen in our lives. As I write, I have developed a prayer life that has seen me developing as a Christian and I still pray that one day I will personally meet and dine with this amazing couple (Prophet Angel and his wife) just for them to tell me more about this true and real Jesus, their God because he is real and practical. I thank God always for them.

Our Prophets fought alone against the media and all the Haters and now i am proud of the Christian family that we are standing together shamelessly to profess that Jesus is alive and he walks and exhibits his power through Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa, through Prophet Angel - Well done Body of Christ
