Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa tried to do a miracle surgical birth in the United Kingdom before the whole congregation stopped him from doing so.
During the miracles and impartation ceremony on Sunday night, Makandiwa said he wanted to perform an early (before it is due) miracle birth.
"Are there any pregnant women around who would like to deliver their babies early? You can deliver your baby early right here and right now," he said as he physically prepared himself to perform the "miracle" operation right before everyone's eyes.
The audience responding to Makandiwa's unction, promptly shouted a loud: 'no', resulting in no one stepping forward.
It is believed people present at the conference were afraid of witnessing a live birth, something they are used to seeing only in hospitals and performed by qualified surgeons. Prophet Makandiwa uses as his motivation a scriptural passage from Romans 8:19 which states that the entire nature and whole creation is groaning for the sons of God to come out into the open.
"I was disappointed that the people around here refused and have denied us the chance to see him perform the miracle of an early birth" said one of a female delegate before the meeting ended.
Meanwhile journalists were barred from filming or photographing the multiple 'miracle' sessions. Church authorities told Our News Crew that only the church's media team were allowed to use cameras and the church would rather forward photograph and video footage to this publication on Monday after editing.
But by Monday evening the church had not sent the evidence pieces as promised. Our News Crew was told that the church's media team needs to edit the footage before it is released to the public.
