Zimbabwe is reeling after controversial US-based ‘prophet’ Passion Java appeared to accurately predict the recent death of respected church founder Ezekiel Guti.
Java delivered the chilling prophecy during a prayer session in Dubai, claiming angels had told him it was Guti’s time to ‘come home’. He said he saw celestial beings celebrating and an angel declaring “It is time, and the time is now”.
The flashy ‘prophet’ – known for his lavish lifestyle – warned that after Guti’s passing, his ZAOGA church would split into two factions. Java quoted Hebrews 9:27 before wishing Guti a happy birthday.
And two months later, Guti passed away at the age of 100, leaving many believers in shock and doubting Java’s apparent ‘divine revelation’. While some hail Java as a true prophet, others warn of false prophets and urge discernment.
Guti founded the influential ZAOGA church in 1960 and remained its spiritual leader for over 60 years. Zimbabwe now mourns the loss of a ‘spiritual giant’ who touched lives through his vast Christian literature, university and hospital.
So did the flamboyant ‘prophet’ Passion Java really foretell Guti’s death? And what does this mean for Zimbabwe’s gullible believers falling for such predictions? Only time will tell if ZAOGA splits as Java prophesied – but many remain skeptical of this flashy ‘prophet of profits’.
