Welcome to the wisdom corner. This week I will be sharing from the desk of my spiritual father and mentor Prophet Makandiwa. Through this article I will be giving you some facts and truth about the prophetic and miraculous.
Life is made up of things that we are aware of and those things that we are not aware of.
The fact that we are ignorant of some laws or facts of life to observe and to do them doesn't mean that they will not affect us.
Even if our forefathers never told us about the existence of gravity, that doesn't stop it from affecting us.
It is true that the earth is revolving around the sun, but who among the mortal is able to tell us where the driving force is coming from?
The fact that in my rural area we don't know whatever is happening to the earth does not stop it from revolving.
Our knowledge of some things does not validate or authenticate them.
Without our knowledge some things are authentic and are of great value. In the book of John, Jesus told one Pharisee that the wind blows where it wishes and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes.
So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit. What Jesus is saying is if a spiritual man sent from God comes to town, no natural man is able to define him. From the beginning of the beginnings, no natural man is able to understand the spiritual man.
Even today, people comment on the prophetic, but they do not exactly know what they say or claim to know.
A prophet or a spiritual man does not become one because he is defined by you. As long as he is a spiritual man he is like wind blowing from one unknown corner going to another unknown destination.
John 3:12 says Jesus said to the Pharisee: If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things?
It's like the Lord is saying, kana Maths dzakaramba kupinda mumusoro mako, how do you expect the same head to understand the things of the spirit?
I am actually surprised to hear some adulterous pastors commenting about what they do not know. They claim to be smart and clean. As for some of us, the reason why we came to Jesus is because we have done all evils and it is because we are weak that's why we need a Prophet to hang on.
Surprisingly, some of these men have failed their families and had failed to run a ministry of only two people, but you hear them saying, "I do not understand the Makandiwa and the Angel guys". Are not these men supposed to join UFIC or Spirit Embassy?
Even the world does not have confidence in such so-called men of the cloth. I hear the media saying some pastors have commented against these young prophets, saying "These are not pastors, they are retired and failed farmers and carpenters or so."
Look at them, if prophets Makandiwa and Angel are possessed, why can't these pastors join hands in prayer and fasting and then cast out these demons?
These are not pastors, but I think if Paul was around, he could have called them "dogs" according to Philippians 3:2 and 3 or "Opposers of all mankind", 1 Thessalonians 2:15-16.
He could have called them, "men corrupted in mind and disqualified regarding the faith", 2 Timothy 3:8 and 9. Jude could have called them "waterless clouds", Jude 1:12.
The fact that many people are coming together to undermine the prophetic does not make God to join their boats. Daniel, Jeremiah, Joseph, John, Jesus to name, but a few, if you ask them how they did manage rejection, they will tell you that during their earthly days they were running their races as lone rangers, with God they were the majority.
Don't expect and accept any human endorsement. You do not need a prophetic gift in order for you to be able to receive and understand a prophet.
He is a prophet of God whether you receive him, understand him or not. He might not be your prophet, but he remains God's prophet and property.
It is out of the spiritual that we derive the natural. All the things that we see in the natural have their spiritual representations. For the physical to be appreciated it can only be sustained by the spiritual. Hear you all men and women who are citizens of this world, the spiritual world exists and it is the original.
It is out of this spiritual world that we have prophets and miracle workers. Miracles are real because the miracle worker Jesus Christ is alive and is working with some men and women today who have a good relationship with Him. The existence of a man itself is a miracle. It is the spirit of a man that supports the body that we see. If God could have created the miraculous man, why do people think He cannot perform other cheap miracles like giving people money?
In UFIC, God is doing some mighty, outstanding and strange miracles like women being in labour and give birth in less than three minutes, the Hebrew women anointing.
Ambulances will rush for the women, but sometimes it will be too late. We have a curse breaker in our midst!
We see Jesus Christ working strange miracles through the hands of our father prophet Makandiwa. Miracles are born out of one's relationship with the Lord.
When God intervenes and provides a solution bypassing the natural laws it becomes a miracle. Miracles do not become miracles because they are endorsed by ministers of religions, other clergymen or what, they are just miracles because of the participation of God.
In the first place the miracle did not happen because you were consulted or because you will deny or accept them, they do happen because God is meeting a need or He is managing a crisis.
In Hosea 4:6, God says, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I will reject you from being a priest to me. The most vocal are those who are the most empty and are the most fearful. In Shona they say, kuvhunduka chati kwatara hunge une chiturikwa.
Why do people fear the movement of God? If you are clean Mr Pastor, God will spare you and fight for you. Acquire knowledge, support God and you shall forever remain a priest unto Him.
Zimbabwe, divine solutions have come!
