Zimbabwe, this year, faces the worst drought in recent years with devastating effects threatening the livelihood of millions.

AS we entered into the year 2016, exactly seven weeks ago, the country reverberated with messages of a prosperous and stable Zimbabwe coming. Walter Magaya of Prophetic Healing and Deliverance ministries prophesied, for the umpteenth time, that the New Year was to become the harbinger of great things to come.

“God said to me, 2016 is the year of overflow and abundance,” Magaya told multitudes of his followers gathered at his Waterfalls Church in Harare, prompting them to break into song and dance. Magaya said before he made the declaration about 2016, he had spent the greater part of December interceding and seeking God’s plans.

He travelled to Nigeria for confirmation of his prophecy. He even went a step further in reinforcing his prophecy by mentioning that renowned Nigerian preacher TB Joshua had affirmed his prophecy. “I went to ask my spiritual father and he confirmed this. Yes, I know we are going through tough times as a country, but this year, it is a year of overflow. I asked him [TB Joshua], my father, this is what the Lord is telling me, but look at our situation as a country, as Africa, is this true? He said it is true.”

Strange, isn’t it that one would seek to verify a message supposedly coming from God with another mortal being? But knowing that a 2014 survey showed that Zimbabweans make the largest number of nationals flocking to the West African preacher’s citadel, this surely would give credence to the prophecy and it did. Newspaper pages bristled with the headlines; I recall particularly one which screamed, “TB Joshua confirms Zimbabwean prosperity prophecy.”

It became the news as we turned into the New Year. What further cemented the prophecy was the echoing of the same prophecy by another Zimbabwean preacher with a significant following Emmanuel Makandiwa in Chitungwiza as he declared 2016 a year of “great harvest.” “This is a year of great harvest as there will be no depression and sorrows,” Makandiwa said.

Now, it must be clear that Emmanuel Makandiwa has been at the forefront, year in, year out, for the past six years prophesying economic boom for Zimbabweans. The beginning of each New Year since 2010 when his ministry took off has been marked by enchanting prosperity prophecies. The man once mentioned that gold will be picked from the ground in 2013 as he prophesied massive prosperity for the country. Recently, he made another comic prophecy that there were oil reserves underneath. The prophecy resulted in a skirmish with politician Professor Jonathan Moyo.

Now these are the most notable prophets in Zimbabwe whose prophecies rhymed. It would appear they also set the tone for the rest of the prophecies that would follow from up and coming prophets throughout the country. Of all these hair-perming prophets none has prophesied the everyday catastrophic realities we have witnessed in the country in the last five years.

Zimbabwe this year faces the worst drought in recent years with devastating effects threatening the livelihoods of millions. None of all the prophecies thrown forward picked such a momentous disaster but they all saw prosperity. The prophets continue to sing from the same erroneous hymn book. They have continued to fail dismally in their apparent guess work disguised as prophecy.

One other noteworthy point as many other people have pointed out is that these new age prophets thrive on saying sugary things that caress the ears of listeners. They have to maintain hope at all cost and by all means, fair or foul. As a result, we heard the echo of the same prophecy from the ‘minor’ prophets who seemed to be parroting the words of the ‘major’ prophets.

However, reality on the ground has been the greatest betrayer of these prosperity merchants. Zimbabwe is far from the prophesied country that would attain the huge prosperity as we have heard in the past few years. If anything the country’s political and economic fortunes could not be any worse at this time and evidently in the future. As things stand the factional fights characterizing the political landscape threaten the stability of the country.

One would immensely wonder how neither of the numerous prophets in this country failed to foresee the cruel El Nino facing the country today. How these prophets missed the drought threatening livelihoods of thousands in the rural area defies the mind. The country may soon face sugar shortages and inflation rose last week yet none saw all these undesirables and ‘God’ showed them the economy flourishing.

Harare currently is groaning as excavators continue to raze built houses to the ground and nursing mothers have to brave the harsh weather. Could this be prosperity by another name? The last year July ruling which threw over 20,000 bread winners in the streets has caused a fresh exodus to hostile foreign lands while we continue being bombarded with these patently false prophecies.

It remains unfortunate that caught between a hard place and a rock, hopeless Zimbabweans would rather cling to the hope of a never coming prosperity.

So we have to stop calling them fake because there is noone genuine among us??? How many "cross-over nights' and 'judgements nights" have been held and these are with a definate time period, season so to speak, but the country is continuing to slide down economically and even the followers of the prophets continue to struggle.

In this our time no man is sober so its only in his empirial majesty , the most high God l put my trust.
Non of these so-called fornicating and decieving men and women of''gods''have any relevance before God ,Allah ,Yaweh or whatever your prefered name for his majesty(H.M).
In God's kingdom there are no miracles but works ,miracles are for those who believe and do not trust.

ROME WAS NOT BUILT IN A DAY. BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO PATIENTLY WAIT UPON THE LORD. EVEN WHEN ABRAHAM WAS PROMISED A CHILD, DID HE COME THERE AND THEN?
YOUR MANDATE IS JUST TO BELIEVE, NOT TO ARGUE.
LET THE MEN SPEAK WHAT THEY SEE AND HEAR, THEY ARE NOT THE ONES WHO CAUSE THEM TO HAPPEN.

Hi Jonso

The Bible says in Deuteronomy 18:21- 22 You may say to yourselves, “How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the Lord?” If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously, so do not be afraid of him.

If they are really ordained true prophets, what they say should come to pass. If they claim that a certain year is a "year of overflow and abundance", and the year ends without that prophecy coming to pass then the Bible tells us that the LORD has not spoken. A true prophet of God speaks things which come to pass.

The Bible also tells us in Jeremiah 28:9 , it says "But the prophet who prophesies peace will be recognized as one truly sent by the Lord only if his prophecy comes true."

If the prophecy does not come true, then that prophet cannot have been sent by God.

The Prophesies are right because the man sdpeak for themselves. They are leaving in abundance, growing from wealth to wealth, breaking ground, adding digits to accounts. Unfortunately its not the same for the rest of the 30 000 congregants.

Mr writer I wish I could meet you and shake your hand. You are one of the few with brains and real eyes. These crooks calling themselves prophets are nothing but gold diggers. Wake up stupid Zimbos. Reality is what works, anything spiritual is bullshit.

if someone says you are stupid to a little child it affects them even for the rest of their lives , but , if someone else comes to them and says no , you are intelligent , the child will begin to change . its called power of words . if the devil declares poverty each year , a prophet will fight back and declare prosperity .these are declarations placed in the spirit realm and its up to whoever believes to fight for their prosperity. its not the job of the prophets and even the devil .if you are told you are stupid , its up to you to believe it and act it , if you are told you are intelligent its up to you to believe it and act upon it .
