Outspoken Executive Director of the Zimbabwe Divine Destiny, Bishop Ancelimo Magaya has castigated remarks made by Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s warning fake prophets who hide behind the name of God to attack the national leadership and extort money from the public.
Bishop Magaya said the Vice President should be the last person to speak about prophets because he does not know how they operate.
“Vice President Chiwenga should know that he does not qualify to evaluate prophets, I do not think he knows three verses from the bible, he is not a Christian, he does not know God he does not know how Prophets operate” said Bishop Magaya
Quoting from the bible verse in the book of Amos (4:1) Bishop Magaya said government officials should not tell prophets what not to say or say.
“He needs to be reminded that when you read the book of Amos. The Prophet Amos told the rulers then that they were cows of Bashan and they were greed, flourishing and sleeping on ivory beds when they disregarded the property of the people and government officials should be the last people to actually warn prophets regarding what to say and what no to say. They should abandon murder, Vice President Chiwenga should regret the murder that the state has committed first before he touches servants of God”
Appearing in public for the first time since his return from South Africa where he was receiving treatment the Vice President Chiwenga warned Apostle Talent Chiwenga (Muzuva) of Jesus Revelation Ministries
“There are others who are now calling themselves prophets,” said VP Chiwenga. “Aripo uyo anonzi ani, Talent (Muzuva) (there is this one called Talent Muzuva). That should come to an end today. Zvatoperera pano (It has ended here). We don’t have that culture where one moves around attacking leaders under the guise of preaching the word of God. God does not say move around attacking other people.
“We want people to go to church and pray to God. This habit of using the name of the church to extort money is not good. How can you say that on the one hand you are practising Satanism and on the other you say you are a prophet, what kind of a prophecy is that? It’s not good and we don’t want that.
Following the warning Apostle Talent Chiwenga (Muzuva) said he now fears for his life and that of his family.
Apostle Chiwenga had given a prophecy that he saw two important people die in quick succession in Zimbabwe and the death would have a bearing on the future of the country.
