PROPHET FREDDY (Goodness and Mercy Ministries)
Zimbabwe, as a God fearing nation, we go on our knees and pray for PEACE. As we are approaching a period of harmonized elections we call to our God for a peaceful elections. The word of God in 2nd Chronicles 7:14 God promised us that when we pray, humble ourselves and seek His face, He will hear us from heaven and answer. The events of Bulawayo White city stadium which resulted in casualties of government officials and other Zanu PF supporters is disturbing and we pray for speedy recovery and healing in the name of Jesus.
May God continue to guide all those who are in positions of power – whether that power is political or physical or social – and give them wisdom to use their power wisely. On the other hand I call upon those who use social media not to preach message of hatred. We are Zimbabweans we sympathise with those injured not to mock or make fun through the social media.
The word of God in Daniel 2:21 reminds us that God is the one who sets up rulers and kings. We pray for purity in our leaders intentions and Godliness in every conviction. In this time that Zimbabwe is approaching everyone should be bighearted and sincere, energetic in goodness and courteous in manners. We believe that God will make Zimbabwe a great Nation with a heartbeat that wants every person of every creed and color to know God’s love, goodness and worth.
APOSTLE STEPHEN MANGWANYA of New United Apostolic Faith church said anything that comes through the shedding of blood is not from God.
“Our resurrected Lord and savior Jesus Christ was crucified, buried and resurrected for all nations to have salvation and be peaceful,” said Apostle Mangwanya.
“Those people behind bomb blast are evil and have nothing to fight for the nation but disturb the nation from exercising their right to vote peacefully.
“The nation expressed their rights by removing the old era in a peaceful manner and there was no violence or killing each other paving the way for President Mnangagwa to rule.
“That peaceful move by the nation shows that President Mnangagwa was ordained by God and fighting him is fighting what God has ordained.
“Elections are close and those who want to use violence to force the nation to be led by a person they want are bringing a curse to the nation, I urge the nation to remain peaceful and prayerful to enjoy the fruits of their past suffering,” said Apostle Mangwanya.
He wished the injured people speedy recovery urging the nation to continuously pray for peace before, during and after elections.
Destiny of Afrika Network founder, REVEREND OBADIAH MUSINDO called those fighting President Mnangagwa to repent for the good of their family and the nation reiterating that he has been ordained by God.
“Everything ordained by God cannot be won by any means,” said Rev Musindo.
“No weapon fashioned against him will prosper and those behind the bomb blast to target His Excellency will never win their battle because he has been ordained by God.
“Let them not waste their time, starve their family or receive blood money to try to remove him by waging war or any means they fool themselves are best.
“Zimbabwe has been blessed, and will prosper and enjoy the goodness and mercy of the Lord through President Mnangagwa.
“He is a man with a listening ear, power to act and bring results and anyone who fights such a leader is doomed for shame,” said Rev Musindo.
APOSTLE BENJAMIN JOSEPH MURATA of New Life Pentecostal church said Zimbabweans are peace loving people that anyone resorting to violence is against the nation quoting Bible scriptures.
“The word of God is very clear on leadership and those after fighting them as written in the Holy Scriptures on Romans chapter 13: 1-8,” said Apostle Murata.
“Zimbabweans love peace and anyone caught disturbing that peace is fighting the nation and will not escape unpunished according to the word of God.
“As we pray for the injured people to receive their healing let those behind the bomb blast turn away from evil and hunger for power for their time will come if allowed by God,” said Apostle Murata.
