Malawi pro-govt news outlet names Prophet Bushiri its ‘Personality of the Year 2017’

A pro-government news site, Maravi Post, gave Bushiri the honour on Friday after recognising that runs the church which has over 300 000 registered members in South Africa alone and is followed by 1.7 million followers on Facebook and nearly 2.6 million TV viewers on his Prophetic Channel.

The publication says it honours “Prophet Shepherd Bushiri (also known as “Major One”) for his tireless, inspiring, comforting and support of people everywhere – locally and globally.”

It notes that Bushiri holds crusades, and economic and social gatherings in Malawi, South Africa, the USA, Venezuela and Australia. Recently he was the guest of the South Sudan government, where he signed a MoU that will create a mining investment partnership that will enhance the north eastern African country’s mining sector.

He has been to Malawi, even making donations to the hungry, prisoners and those in hospital.

But he does not just do that in Malawi. He has reached out to prisons in Nigeria, donated to the sick and underprivileged in South Africa, the relief food and paid needy students’ fees in Malawi—just everything.

“Bushiri activities demonstrate love and care for the people. It is not a wonder that some people are debating whether the Man of God can become a next leader for Malawi,” the news site says.

It quotes Nophi Phumisa, a Master of Arts in Political Science student at a university in Australia, saying Prophet Bushiri’s rise to global stardom is a story that “most Malawians of goodwill admire and those with ill intention greatly despise and burn with envy.”

Senior Editor Janet Karim agreed and said: “The first time I attended a fund raiser in early 2017 that the New York ECG satellite hosted with the Prophet in attendance, I was overwhelmed at grassroots raising of funds. We have this ability in Malawi, we just do not harness it well nor do we account for the use of the funds. Many churches have built houses of prayer, others have also enhanced resources by creating commercial enterprises. Accountability is at the core of these ventures.

“Prophet Bushiri ventures out, casting the net widely and the catch is overwhelming and inspiring. People should not critic him; they should emulate him.

“And his charitable ways make great sense of the multiplication of the two fish and five loaves of bread. That Great prophet did say that we would ‘do greater things than these.’ ” Karim said in quotes attributed to her.

Accomplishments

The prophet is recognized for numerous achievements he has made that directly or indirectly impact the society including:

  • He runs the world’s fastest growing ministries, currently with over one million people, and, also, with established branches in all the world’s six continents; with 300,000 in South Africa.
  • His Prophetic Channel TV broadcasts to more than 40 million viewers across the world. The TV recently launched its French and Spanish broadcasts.
  • He is the only church leader in South Africa whose Sunday Services pulls more than 60,000 people.
  • He is the only Malawian, outside politics, who receives state protection in every country he travels.
  • With 2.2 million likes on his Facebook page, he is the only Malawian with the largest following on Facebook.
  • He is Malawi’s youngest and largest employer. His Shepherd Bushiri Investments (SBI) entities employ over 10,000 people, and 70 percent of them are Malawians.
  • Every year, he spends K2 billion on charitable activities in different countries, with Malawi enjoying the lion’s share at 60 percent.
  • He only eats organic food from Malawi.
  • He is the only African church leader to consistently fill up the FNB Stadium, Africa’s largest soccer stadium.
  • He is the only man in Africa driving a 2017 Rolls Royce Black Badge, which is worth K1.2 billion.
  • He is the only church leader from Malawi to be featured in the prestigious New African magazine and, again, the only Malawian to be named, by Africa.com, as one of the 10 affluent and influential families in Africa.
  • He is the only Malawian added in the Dubai Top Ten of doing business well from Africa.
  • He is the only man of God who has met almost all Heads of States and governments in Africa — except Malawi’s Peter Mutharika.
  • He is the youngest man in the world owning four private jets, and 27 gold mines.
  • In his mid-thirties, he is Malawi’s most published author with 17 books on religion, finance; and entrepreneurship to his credit.

Shepherd Bushiri Archives – The Most Influential Contemporary African Diaspora Leaders

1. LIE: Through its regional chairperson, Abraham Mashinini, SANCO (South African National Civic Organisation) says that Pastor Bushiri, from Nigeria, is a magician and runs a bogus church in Pretoria. Because of this he must leave South Africa and go back to his home in Nigeria.

FACT: There is no Pastor Bushiri but Prophet Shepherd Bushiri (Major 1). He is from Malawi not Nigeria. Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG) Church is not a bogus church. It is registered and operates legally. ECG Church is the world’s #1 fastest growing church and its founder, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, is not a magician but a powerful man of God respected by countless throughout the world.

Open doors 2018-12-31 with Major 1

2. LIE: Mashinini says that there are four people, instead of three, that lost their lives during the Friday December 28, 2018 incident at church. The goal is to project ECG as a lying church.

FACT: Three people, something confirmed by the police, lost their lives during the incident. Police has even said in public that it doesn’t know anything about the fourth body.

3. LIE: Mashinini says Prophet Bushiri said South Africans, unlike other countries, flock to ECG because they believe in magic and miracles.

FACT: Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has never said something to that effect. In fact, he challenges anybody who has a recording to that effect to bring it forward for evidence and challenge.

4. LIE: Mashinini says Prophet Bushiri killed people at his church and also hid them from police.

FACT: The three members of the ECG died following a stampede that happened at Church that resulted after hundreds of members run for shelter amidst an unexpected thunderstorm. Prophet Shepherd Bushiri came to church 7 hours after the incident and he only got a confirmation of the deaths a day later from the police’s report. Everything about the processes on how the incident was managed was done by the paramedics which the church outsourced. Further, to establish the truth, Prophet Bushiri instructed the church to do an internal investigation. He even agreed with the church’s decision to suspend the resident pastor pending investigations.

5. LIE: Mashinini says some South Africans have lost from 10 to 13 million at ECG church and some have even given all their pensions to help grow the church.

FACT: ECG is a church, not a business. No money is made or lost at church. Further, just like in any church, people willingly give offerings and tithe to help meet church’s expenses. In fact, Prophet Shepherd Bushiri mostly uses money from his business to cover incurred deficits of church’s expenses.

6. LIE: Mashinini says ECG must leave [Pretoria] Showground because it doesn’t have capacity to provide safety for its people.

FACT: The Friday 28th incident was an unfortunate incident that none planned—it was an accident. However, since it came to the Pretoria Showgrounds in 2015, ECG manages crowds of more than 70,000 people every week and no death-related incident has even been recorded. ECG is a compliant church and everyday, it meets and reports to JOC officials and the City of Tshwane on every safety development.

7. LIE: Mashinini says Prophet Bushiri takes money from the poor and enriches himself.

FACT: Prophet Shepherd Bushiri is a successful business. He does not live on proceeds of tithe and offerings. In fact, as said earlier, he is always the key financier of the ministry.

8. LIE: Mashinini says Prophet Bushiri must leave Pretoria Showgrounds because he has monopolized it and communities are failing to use it for other recreational facilities.

FACT: ECG has a lease contract with the City of Tshwane to use part, not all, of the Showgrounds for prayers. That is why the public still uses other part of the showgrounds for, instance, writing examinations. In fact, if the landlord, City Tshwane, wants the place for other activities, it always communicates with ECG about it. For instance, in 2016, the City of Tshwane asked ECG to go on a recess for two weeks so that the place is used by sporting activities——something the church obliged.

9. LIE: Mashinini says the Pretoria Showgrounds is not being used for intended purposes.

FACT: The Showgrounds was put in place to serve the community. To mean, its legal use for prayers means communities are being served. For instance, 90 percent of people that pray at ECG comes from around Showgrounds. That entails that the place is being used for, of course, one of its many intended purposes.

10. LIE: Mashinini says they need to close ECG, send Prophet Bushiri home, so that they should protect the interest of South Africans.

FACT: ECG is a legally registered church in South Africa and 95 percent of its membership come from South African people. It’s mostly South Africans who are members and followers of ECG. To mean, when you close ECG, you are not punishing Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, you are only punishing fellow South Africans by denying them their freedom of religion.

CONCLUSION

You can see for yourself that ECG has done everything expected to make things after the incident. However, instead of constructive engagements with ECG, Mr Mashinini is trying so hard to bring Prophet Shepherd Bushiri into the entire incident. Because he knows it’s entirely difficult to bring Prophet Shepherd Bushiri into this, he has resorted to use outright lies and incredible falsities. It won’t work.

My name is Friday Musonda, a Prophet by calling and I’m running my church, Euaggelion Christian Center here in Chingola Zambia.

I’m not here to argue or agree with anyone, I will speak from my spirit.

It’s well known as it is the talk of the universe that Prophet Shepherd Bushiri is going through thick and thin. I want everyone to know that Prophet Shepherd Bushiri is not my family member, he’s not my spiritual father and I’m not his church member but I’ve been following him and his ministry from the time he was in Malawi and I’m openly saying I have been spiritually mentored by his ministration and his life in so many ways, I must submit that some of the things I do I have learnt from him.

I may not know what he has done, wrong or right but this is what I have to say;

Christianity is a family and we love and support one another in everything, that is; when one man is fought we are all fought, only fake Christians can deny this fact.

South Africa is blessed but South African pastors Who are after the man of God are totally wrong, ignorant and dull, I must say they are spiritually and academically blind, look at this;

How many people are doing business outside the church when the service is going on who are South Africans and probably not his church members?
How many families are being saved by those businesses? Some parents are there doing business outside the church, through that they are managing their children’s schools and taking care of their homes.

How many tourists have been coming into the nation leaving their money to support the economy of the nation as they come to his church?

Many parents are happy because through his prayers and ministration their children are free from addictions, fighting and are delivered from many challenges.

How many people have come to know how to pray and worship, leaving their prostitution and witchcraft because of the anointing upon him?

How many people especially young men have learnt to Work hard because of him?

He has been running businesses and his companies there that have employed so many people which I believe most of them are south Africans.

I have seen him helping schools, feeding the needy and inspiring the youths to live a better life, and not only that but also has been standing in the gap praying for the peace of South Africa.

My point is, it’s not really Prophet Shepherd Bushiri being fought, it’s the people he’s helping that are troubled, their faith is at risk and truly fought because some will backslide, lose jobs and go back to their old dirty lives if he had to leave the country now.

People should know these things and especially my fellow ministers of the gospel, everyone who has been called by God knows that after Prophet Shepherd Bushiri has been fought they are next to be fought, so there is no sensible man or woman of God who can celebrate when another man in the same Kingdom is attacked because the body of Christ is being persecuted.

I therefore call upon every true believer to do a fasting, praying for the body of Christ and including the very Prophet in our fasting that the God who has fought his battles all this time will grant him victory even now.

I and my church are praying for him and even entering the fasting, we are praying and fasting for him, his family and church on Wednesday after tomorrow, I invite everyone to join us.

If you know what I’m talking about please do this to shame the enemy”.

Type “I’M PRAYING FOR THE PROPHET.”
And share this post as many times as possible.”

Bushiri column ‘Bible Up-Close’: Understanding your real identity through Jesus Christ – Malawi Nyasa Times

I often encounter people who assume that God sees them as worthless throwaways, deserving to be cast into the nearest hellfire, or punished by His wrath. The truth is, God doesn’t see you or anyone else that way. He sees you as His beloved creation, with whom He desires to spend eternity.Bushiri column

The bible clearly states in 2 Corinthians through the Apostle John Paul, “17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come. The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation. 19 That God was reconciling the world to Himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them, and He has committed to us the message of reconciliation.”

The death and resurrection of Christ symbolizes our own death to self and resurrection to a new holy life. Through this very act, our garment of heaviness and pain was exchanged for his garment of righteousness and peace. Isaiah 61:3 – “and provide for those who grieve in Zion,to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,the oil of joy instead of mourning,and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.”

For this very fact, many christians today can boldly declare that it is no longer the humanity in them that lives but Christ’s divinity that is now in operation.

I have also encountered people who, because they have a faulty perception of God, continually strive to have enough, do enough, or showcase to be good enough to gain God’s approval.

But God does not evaluate anyone on the basis of things external or behavioral. God doesn’t see you or any other person through the lens of a bank account, a family tree, a job, or a set of accomplishments. God has formed each and every one of us in such a way that we are self-sufficient in His sufficiency. By Him we have been made whole, despite the material things and the worlds report.

Many people seek to find material things in order to attain recognition and in order to build their esteem but I want to let you know that the latter are better off to only be fruits of what you already have inside of you.

Learning to see ourselves as God sees us is key to getting our spiritual identity in focus and also to become who God has predestined us to be. That is to be victorious, successful and to fully takeover every sector of this world.

The very essence of self-discovery is seeing yourself apart from all other relationships and responsibilities. The “core you” is the you that exists even if you aren’t somebody’s parent, child, spouse, employer or employee, pastor, friend, or so forth.

I want to encourage you to take time out and allow God to reveal the real you to yourself. A person destined for success and not failure, to conquer and dominate not to be suppressed. Let the Lord show you a righteous path and lead you through this walk of life with strength, dignity and love.

The Prophet Elisha – Elijah’s Succesor

Elisha was the faithful disciple of the prophet Elijah, and his successor. He had followed his master from the moment they met, when Elisha was a young man, plowing his father’s field near the ancient town of Abel-mecholah in northern Israel. Elisha saw his master disappear in a fiery chariot, going up to heaven, without dying first. At that moment Elisha cried: “My father, my father, the chariot of Israel…!” and rent his clothes. He knew then that he was to carry on the great work of Elijah, to spread the knowledge of G‑d, to bring relief and blessing to his people, and teach them to be kind and charitable.

Elisha picked up the mantle which Elijah had cast off when he went up to heaven. He felt the spirit of Elijah within him, and when he had to cross the Jordan to return home, he waved Elijah’s mantle against the water, and they parted suddenly and made a way for the divine prophet to cross the Jordan on its dry bed.

In Jericho the band of young prophets saw Elisha make his miraculous crossing of the Jordan alone. They knew Elijah disappeared and they hailed Elisha as their leader and master.

Soon Elisha was again to prove his divine powers. The people of Jericho came to him to complain of the bad water of the vicinity which caused disease to man and beast, and laid the whole land waste and barren. Elisha was ready to prove G‑d’s great kindness in a miraculous way. He requested a new cruse with salt. This he took to the nearest spring and there cast the salt into the water. To the assembled people he proclaimed in G‑d’s name that the water would now be cured, and would no longer cause death, nor make the land barren. And as the people drank of the sweet, pure and wholesome water they praised G‑d and blessed the great prophet. Elisha’s name grew far and wide.

Having left Jericho in the company of his disciples, the younger prophets, Elisha was approaching the town of Beth-el. Instead of greeting the prophet and his disciples with respect and honor, some young men of Beth-el came out to mock the prophet and shout abusive words in his direction. The reason for their disgraceful behavior was their great selfishness. For until Elisha cured the water in the vicinity they had a profitable business. They used to bring water from afar and get high prices for it from the local inhabitants. But since Elisha cured the water, they lost this business, and therefore hated the prophet.

Seeing that these people had no fear of G‑d, and no respect for the prophet, nor any consideration for their fellowmen, Elisha cursed them, and their punishment came swiftly. Ferocious bears suddenly appeared from the woods and charged into the mocking crowd. Forty-two young men were left slain, and the rest fled in terror.

Three Kings Plead for Elisha’s Help

There was now hardly a man, king or slave, who hadn’t heard of Elisha’s miracles and divine powers. It didn’t take a long time before three kings came together to Elisha to ask his help. The occasion was the war with Moab.

For many years the Moabites had been subdued by Ahab, king of Israel (of the Ten Tribes). When Ahab died, they rebelled, and again became a menace to the land of Israel. Ahab’s son Jehoram who succeeded his brother Ahaziah as King of Israel then appealed to Jehoshophat, king of Judah, to come to his aid, and Jehoshophat’s reply was short and sweet: “I am as thou; my people as thy people, my horses as thy horses…”

The two Jewish kings marched with their armies through Edom, and the king of Edom joined them. But when the armies were poised for battle against the Moabites, they ran out of water, and they became faint with thirst. There was not a drop of water in the whole valley, and it looked as though the vast armies of the three kings would suffer a great disaster.

The three kings then remembered Elisha, and together went to see him.

Seeing the wicked Jehoram who was following in his father’s steps and continuing to spread the Baal-worship in his kingdom, Elisha rebuked him fearlessly. Elisha told him to his face that were it not for the king of Judah, he would not have even looked at him. However, this was a rare opportunity to show them G‑d’s kindness to His people. And so, Elisha told them, in G‑d’s name, to dig ditches, and though they would see neither wind nor rain, the ditches would be filled with pure drinking water for them and their horses. Moreover, Elisha promised them complete victory over the Moabites.

Every word Elisha said came true.

The Pot of Oil That Turned Into A Well



One day, the widow of the prophet Obadiah came to Elisha. In a voice full of grief she told him that her husband died in great indebtedness, and the creditors now threatened to take away her two sons as slaves, unless she paid the debts immediately.

Elisha had known the G‑d-fearing and kind Obadiah, who under the very eyes of the wicked king Ahab fed and sheltered the true prophets of G‑d whom the wicked queen Jezebel sought to exterminate. He sustained them at his own expense, and when his own means gave out he had to incur many debts. Now his two sons would have to serve the creditors to the full value of the debts, for such was the law in those days. Surely such a man deserves a better lot!

“What have you in the house?” Elisha asked her.

“I have nothing but a little pot of oil,” she replied.

“Good. Now go and borrow many vessels from all your neighbors, the more the better. Then shut yourself in with your sons, and pour the oil into the vessels.”

The woman followed the prophet’s instructions. When she began to pour out some oil into the first vessel, the oil kept on pouring until the vessel was full. The boys passed her the next vessel, and this, too, soon became full of oil. Vessel after vessel was thus filled with oil, and the little oil that was originally in the pot never seemed to end. When all the vessels were filled, she cried to the boys to pass her another vessel, but they said there was no empty vessel left. Immediately the oil stopped.

The woman ran to Elisha and told him what happened. Elisha was not surprised. He told her to sell all the oil and repay her husband’s debts, and use the rest to support herself and her children.

Elisha And The Shunammite

It was Elisha’s custom to travel about all over the land of Israel in order to observe how his people lived, to help them where necessary and to teach them the knowledge of G‑d.

One day, he visited the town of Shunem. There lived an aged couple there, and both of them were very kind and pious. The woman of Shunem was particularly hospitable, and she saw to it that the prophet eat bread at her house. The aged couple were so pleased with the great privilege and mitzvah of “hachnosas orchim” (hospitality), that they built a special chamber for him, and put a bed there, with a table and a stool and a candle-stick, so that whenever the prophet passed through Shunem, he would find a ready little resting-room.

One day when he was enjoying the comfort of his little room at the Shunemmite’s house, he sent his servant Gehazi to call the hostess. When she appeared before him, Elisha asked her how he could reward her for her kindness. Elisha offered to speak for her to the king or governor, if there was any special favor she required of them. But the good woman said she really needed nothing. “I dwell among my own people,” she said, for she was one of those rare folk who were contented and happy with their lot. As she walked out, Gehazi said to the prophet, “But she has no son! Could there be a greater gift then a nice little boy at their old age?”

Elisha had her called before him again. “About this time next year, thou shalt embrace a son!” Elisha promised her solemnly.

Exactly at the time predicted by the prophet Elisha, a son was born to the aged couple. This was a miracle very much like the one that happened to Abraham and Sarah, and the aged Shunemmite couple were not less happy with their son than were the aged Abraham and Sarah of old with theirs.

One day, when the boy was a few years old and went with the reapers into the field, he complained of a head-ache. His father sent him back to his mother. She hugged him until noon, but he died in her lap.

The poor mother took the lifeless body of her beloved son and laid him on the bed upon which the prophet used to rest. She left him there and shut the door. Then without telling anybody of the death of the boy, she obtained an donkey from her husband, and one of the servants to accompany her, and hurried to Mt. Carmel, where the prophet was. There she flung herself at the prophet’s feet, and gave vent to her deep grief. When Elisha heard the sad news, he at once sent his servant Gehazi with his staff, and told him to place the staff upon the dead child and thus restore him to life. He bade him sternly to make haste and not stop on his way, nor tell anyone the reason for his haste. Gehazi, however, could not keep back the great news. Whomever he met on the way, he told that he was going to restore life to a dead child with the prophet’s staff. But when Gehazi finally reached the Shunemmite’s house and placed the staff on the child it did not help, because Gehazi had not obeyed the prophet.

Elisha himself then went to the house of the Shunemmite and shut himself up with the dead child. Uttering a prayer to G‑d, he restored the child to life. (This very child was later to become the prophet Habakkuk).

The Seven Years of Famine

Time and again, Elisha warned his people to mend their ways or suffer famine and war. The people did not mend their ways and the famine came just as Elisha had foretold it.

At that time Elisha and the young prophets following him, went to Gilgal, near Jericho. They were hard pressed for a meal, and one of the young prophets went out to gather some herbs in the field. He came back with some wild gourds, and no one knew that they were poisonous. When they ate of the pottage, they cried, “Oh, man of G‑d, there’s death in the pot!”

Elisha at once requested a handful of meal, and he poured it into the pot. Then he invited the young prophets to eat some more. They did, and suffered no ill-effects!

Some time later, a man came from Baal-Shalisha in Mount Ephraim, bringing a present to the prophet, bread of the first fruit, 20 barley loaves, and some ears of corn. Said Elisha to his attendant, “Give it to all the people gathered here!”

“There are two thousand of your disciples here,” the man exclaimed in amazement, “shall I set one loaf before hundreds of men?”

“Give it to them” said the holy man again, “For this is the word of G‑d: they will eat, and leave thereof!”

And so it was; they all ate and had enough, and some of the bread was left over!

The miracles that the holy prophet Elisha so frequently performed to ease the suffering of his dear ones, became known far and wide. Everybody knew that Elisha was kind and generous to all, even to men who did not belong to his own people. Thus he cured of leprosy a great Syrian prince, Naaman, who next to the king was the greatest man in Syria).

So numerous did Elisha’s disciples become, that their quarters in Samaria became too small. At the request of the young prophets, Elisha graciously agreed to accompany them to the Jordan, where they intended to build spacious quarters to house all the young prophets who were anxious to be near him.

Once again Elisha amazed the young prophets by a wonderful miracle. It happened that the iron head of an axe used by one of the builders in cutting down a tree, fell into the waters of the Jordan. The young prophet was greatly distressed because the axe was borrowed. Seeing how dear the young prophet held the property of his friend, Elisha came to his rescue. He cut a wooden stick, and threw it into the water, and the next moment all the young prophets gazed at a wonderful sight: the wooden stick slowly sank to the bottom, and up came the iron to the surface, and was retrieved by the young prophet!

War and Siege

Taking advantage of the famine that ravaged the Land of Israel, the Syrian people continually harassed them in the hope of conquering and enslaving them altogether. In those difficult years of famine and siege, the great prophet was the sole support of his people, continually assuring them of G‑d’s protection and delivery, if only they would return to G‑d with all their heart. It was at this fateful time that the siege of Samaria was broken, and the enemy fled in terror leaving so much food in their wake, that it became as plentiful and as cheap as in the years of plenty, and once again, the words of the prophet were fulfilled to “the letter.”

One day, Elisha went to Damascus, the capital of Syria. The news of his arrival in the Syrian capital reached king BenHaddad, who was lying critically ill in his palace. The king sent his most trusted statesman Hazael to enquire of the Hebrew prophet whether he would recover from his illness.

Elisha told Hazael that the king would not die of his illness, but die he would nevertheless, without recovering first. Then turning his head to the wall, the prophet wept bitterly.

“O man of G‑d, why are you weeping?” Hazael asked in surprise.

“G‑d has revealed to me that you will be the next king of Syria, and that you will cause unspeakable misery and suffering to my people; you will pull down our fortified cities, you will slay our best sons, and massacre our women and children…”

“Am I a dog that I should do such a thing?” Hazael cried indignantly.

“Alas, G‑d has willed it, for my people have sinned…”

Hazael returned to his king and told him only that the prophet had said the king would not die of his illness. The next morning however, when he was alone with the sick king, he smothered him, and proclaimed himself king of Syria:

Hazael; the new king of Syria, began a series of successful wars against the people of Israel, spreading destruction and death wherever his savage troops moved.

“The Chariot and Horsemen of Israel”

For over 65 years, Elisha stood at the head of the prophets of his time, among whom was also the prophet Jonah. He saw many kings reign and fall in Judah and Israel. Fearlessly, like his master the prophet Elijah, he fulfilled his divine mission, until his last day came.

As he was lying ill, king Joash of Israel came to his bedside and wept.

“My father, my father, the chariot and horsemen of Israel!” he cried.

Indeed, the people of Israel came to rely upon their great and beloved prophet more than they ever relied upon their chariots and horsemen.

Elisha’s last prophecy was an encouraging one. He told the king that he would defeat Syria three times, and that the people of Israel would then see better and happier days.

sides to protect them.

After a while Ibrahim

said that he should go

back to see Sarah and

to get more food and water.

Before he left he prayed

to Allah to look after

his wife and son because

they did not have much

food and water left.

The food and water

soon began to run low.

Hajar was very worried. What

could they live on?

They prayed to Allah.

Hajar went to the top of

the mountain, Mount Safa,

to look for Ibrahim.

Now their water was all gone

and they were desperate.

She went to the other

side of the valley and

climbed to the top of Mount

Marwa. She looked towards

the North, East, West and

South for help but found

none.

Hajar kept running

backwards and forwards

between Mount Safa and

Mount Marwa.

She did this seven times.

Suddenly she saw

Ismail kick the ground

with his heel.

A spring of water gushed

out – beautiful, pure water,

they were saved.

Even today this water, called

Zamzam, still flows in the

Valley of Hijaz and when

people go to Makkah on Hajj

they go seven times between

the two mounts in memory

of this miracle that saved

the lives of Hajar and Ismail.

When Ibrahim returned he was

amazed to see the valley.

The water had made the place

very fertile. All the animals

and caravans visited and

made it a prosperous place.

Ten Convincing Proofs That Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj is Truly a Prophet (NOT!) – iSpeak






Ten Convincing Proofs That Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj is Truly a Prophet (NOT!)


More than a month ago, ?Prophet? Sadhu Selvaraj prophesied of a coming new dispensation coinciding with the Jewish Yom Kippur due on October 8, 2011. It’s available at http://www.jesusministries.org/.

You can download the transcript of his prophecies here.

He asked Christians to pray and fast in order to self atone for their day-to-day sins saying that only the original sin was atoned for by the death of the Lord Jesus Christ. Anyway, the following are ten ?prophecies? that we should test (1 John 4:1).

If they will all come to pass, they should give him the credibility that he needs to be firmly recognized as today?s prophet of God. However, should any one of them fail, we should all come to a realization that he is a false prophet who is not be revered (Deuteronomy 18:20-22).

Today is October 3, with barely 5 days to go before the alleged ?Final Dispensation? what are these ?prophecies??

  1. New level of the demonstration of signs and wonders in the church – all members of the church will be a miracle worker. Not just the pastor and not just the leaders are in mind here. He meant that everyone in the Body. Yes! Including you he said, ?not [just] the pastor, not just the evangelist, not just the apostle, not just the teacher, not just the prophet that God is going to use mightily but every common believer.?
  2. Angelic activity will be common place ? he says that you will be seeing angels after October 8. And you will be receiving messages from them.
  3. Your church will be glorious ? he says that even without the preaching of the Word, ?as soon as people come within the atmosphere of your church, they?re going to drop and fall to their knees, put up their hands and cry to be saved.?
  4. There will be a great increase in ?revelational knowledge of God and the things of God? he said. And he based it on Revelation 10:7 when the seventh angel blows the trumpet then the mysteries of God ?will be made known to the world.? Should this thing happen, we should rejoice because we may have already skipped the 6 other trumpets, see Revelation 8:2ff.
  5. You will see the spiritual realm ? again not just the pastors or the leaders of the church will see the spiritual realm your eyes will see it too. After your ten day fast, expect to see the spiritual realm unfold before your very eyes. But you must believe it otherwise you won?t see it.
  6. Everyone will become prophets ? he based this on Joel 2:28-29 where it says, ?I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh? meaning to kids even before the age of puberty and those above and beyond. He said it did not happen during the time of Peter, this time, “all flesh” means everyone. Including the unbelievers? We shall see.
  7. Your life is going to change ? he meant to include your destiny, your future, and your entire purpose is going to change. Hopefully for the better.
  8. You will even see the Lord Jesus standing beside you. I don’t know for sure but I think it will happen before the rapture (1 Thessalonians 4:17), or before the gathering of the elect by the angels (Matthew 24:31), or before the ?Man of Sin? is made known (2 Thessalonians 2:3). We shall soon find out.
  9. Expect every ?common person? will say, ?We saw the Lord!?? My only concern is if we can still apply the warning of the Lord in Matthew 24:23 when this becomes prevalent.
  10. Lastly, expect to skip the part in Acts 1:11 where the angel told the disciples: ?This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.? That being the case, we shall probably skip the Parousia – when every eye sees Jesus coming from clouds of heaven with power and glory (Matthew 24:30) because this time every eye will probably see Jesus beside them already 😉

Postscript [Feb. 20, 2012]: I think it is clear since the first writing of this article that Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj is a false prophet simply because not one of his date-specific prophecies listed above came to pass. The more relevant question now is: what are we now going to do about it??Absolutely nothing, expose it or just ignore his blunder and wait for his next prophecies and instructions.

In 1 Jn. 4:1, we read “test the prophets.”?This instruction is not just for pastors, teachers, bishops or for the spiritually mature but for every Christian. Here’s why:

  1. His letter addressed to? “My dear children…” (1 Jn. 2:1, 12, 13, 18; 2:28; 3:2, 7, 18; 4:4; 5:21)
  2. His letter was also address to “Dear friends…” (1 Jn. 2:7; 3:2, 21; 4:1, 7, 11)
  3. His letter was also addressed to “dear children” (1 Jn. 2:12, 13, 18; 3:7, 18)
  4. He also wrote to “fathers”?(1 Jn. 2:13, 14)
  5. He also wrote to “young men” (1 Jn. 2:13, 14)
  6. He instructed them “to love one another” (1 Jn. 2:10; 3:10, 11, 18, 23; 4:7, 11, 21)
  7. He also instructed them to let “anyone lead you astray”?and “live in the?truth”?(1 Jn. 1:6; 2:26, 27; 3:7)

The instruction to test every prophet, true or false, is an individual duty. It is not just for pastors or for bishops. John’s audience or the intended recipients of his letter is that broad that?his epistle is one of those categorized as “catholic” i.e., universal. His instructions are for “you who believe in the name of the Son of God.”?Therefore testing the prophet is imperative to all Christians and it is as important as the instruction to “love one another” and to “not let anyone be led astray.” And so, at least for me, the obvious choice is to expose this thing. What about you?

?(offsite).

Respect the gift of prophecy (1 Thessalonians 5:20) but reject the false ones.

Despite his failed prophecies, Bishop Dan Balais and the Intercessors for the Philippines continue to recognize him as a prophet. In the

Eagle Christian Online

(last accessed March 12, 2012), Dan Balais wrote

“Prophets Sadhu Sundar Selvaraj, Vincent Selkvakumar, Neville Johnson and Robert Misst released similar and complementary prophetic words to the nation clearly spelling out the role of the church in enforcing the destiny of the nation. In the past three years of intense prophetic prayer gatherings, these anointed servants of the Lord showed to us two opposite scenarios: 1) A destroyed, ruined people ; 2) A righteous, prosperous and missionary sending Philippines! The prophetic directive is to contend; to fight for our destiny!!!

How can I recognize a false teacher




Question: “How can I recognize a false teacher / false prophet?”


Answer:


Jesus warned us that “false Christs and false prophets” will come and will attempt to deceive even God’s elect (Matthew 24:23-27; see also 2 Peter 3:3 and Jude 17-18). The best way to guard yourself against falsehood and false teachers is to know the truth. To spot a counterfeit, study the real thing. Any believer who “correctly handles the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15) and who makes a careful study of the Bible can identify false doctrine. For example, a believer who has read the activities of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in Matthew 3:16-17 will immediately question any doctrine that denies the Trinity. Therefore, step one is to study the Bible and judge all teaching by what the Scripture says.


Jesus said “a tree is recognized by its fruit” (Matthew 12:33). When looking for “fruit,” here are three specific tests to apply to any teacher to determine the accuracy of his or her teaching:


1) What does this teacher say about Jesus? In Matthew 16:15-16, Jesus asks, “Who do you say I am?” Peter answers, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God,” and for this answer Peter is called “blessed.” In 2 John 9, we read, “Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son.” In other words, Jesus Christ and His work of redemption is of utmost importance; beware of anyone who denies that Jesus is equal with God, who downplays Jesus’ sacrificial death, or who rejects Jesus’ humanity. First John 2:22 says, “Who is the liar? It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a man is the antichrist—he denies the Father and the Son.”


2) Does this teacher preach the gospel? The gospel is defined as the good news concerning Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, according to the Scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). As nice as they sound, the statements “God loves you,” “God wants us to feed the hungry,” and “God wants you to be wealthy” are not the complete message of the gospel. As Paul warns in Galatians 1:7, “Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion and are trying to pervert the gospel of Christ.” No one, not even a great preacher, has the right to change the message that God gave us. “If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!” (Galatians 1:9).


3) Does this teacher exhibit character qualities that glorify the Lord? Speaking of false teachers, Jude 11 says, “They have taken the way of Cain; they have rushed for profit into Balaam’s error; they have been destroyed in Korah’s rebellion.” In other words, a false teacher can be known by his pride (Cain’s rejection of God’s plan), greed (Balaam’s prophesying for money), and rebellion (Korah’s promotion of himself over Moses). Jesus said to beware of such people and that we would know them by their fruits (Matthew 7:15-20).


For further study, review those books of the Bible that were written specifically to combat false teaching within the church: Galatians, 2 Peter, 1 John, 2 John, and Jude. It is often difficult to spot a false teacher/false prophet. Satan masquerades as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14), and his ministers masquerade as servants of righteousness (2 Corinthians 11:15). Only by being thoroughly familiar with the truth will we be able to recognize a counterfeit.

USA wont fight Iran at the current stage. Oil price will spiral uncontrollably.

China wont fight for Iran. China i best in cyber war and trade war.

Russia has more nuclear war heads than USA, both countries wont fight each other, cos it will be self destruct on both ends.

The Fall of USA as Economic Power can only be achieved if OPEC member nations decide to adopt Euro as trade currency. Euro is already in crisis to the happiness of USA.

Even if China over takes USA as economic power, can they sustain it ? If they do, USA in 50 yrs will be like Britain today. Watch out for part 2 of the epic movie.

Re: Latest Important Prophecy By Prophet TB Joshua- Part I by Amalaaba: 12:57pm On Dec 12, 2011

Can someone help me with T B Joshua’s predictions that have come to pass with evidence.

I am very sure that in due course, Israel and/or America will attack Iran for strategic reasons of making Israel the dominant power in the Middle East, after destroying Syria (already ongoing with funding and donating of weapons to the rebels). I don’t think Russia and China will come to the defense of Iran Militarily for economic reasons, for now. The west did it in Libya.

I think what may trigger a World war is if Israel attacks Iran and Iran is able to respond strongly enough for 7 days before US intervention. UK and Germany would also come to Israel’s aid which may cause an initial clandestine intervention of China/Russia, leading to full bast involvement. It would be messy, just like Vietnam. China/Russia have strategic interest not to completely loose credibility in that region. China buys Iran’s Oil and Gas massively and Russia is using Iran to negotiate with the west and have huge investment. Iran is made up of over 80 million people with yearly University enrollment in hundreds of thousands. Unlike what we see on CNN and BBC, Iran is strong in Science and Technology and capable of causing serious problems for Israel in a war situation.

The west uses and dumps leaders of other nations and destroys anyone/nation that refuses to be used by them. Example: Manuel Noriega of Panama.

This looks logical to me.

Who gives a shyt. As long as Nigeria keeps numb and minds its own business. I hate war. Look at what happened to Sirte, Libya that has been virtually obliterated because the town supported its leader. I heard most houses left standing in that city would have to be brought down. This world is really wicked. I don’t support any nation in its quest for war as war in this century is driven by greed.

you summed it up well.germany is using the financial crises to take over europe like it did during ww1 and ww2,though, financially for now.I Read some where that a german come-back was planned right after ww2 when it was obvious they had lost the war.Its not a coincidence that its only germany that’s strong enough to bail out europe.

The EU countries will ultimately be reduced to 10 nations yielding its power to germany under the spiritual authority of Rome.Its this 10 nations led by germany that will take up iran and its allies.

he talked about what prophecy is which I think I should share, PROPHECY is a logical analysis of the presence to predict possibilities of the future hence concerning all this guy has been saying since time immemorial, most are virtually possible infact already happening and you can see it even if you’re not a so called prophet

Re: Latest Important Prophecy By Prophet TB Joshua- Part I by Nobody: 1:46pm On Dec 12, 2011

This is a site where one expects reason to thrive, but most times u perceive a lot of fear and depression from most posts.

A man prophecied about WW3. No world war has ever affected Africa. No world was has ever been fought in Africa. Our land and people suffer thanks to the heartless domination and bullying from the east and west. They sell us weapons to kill ourselves, take our resources and then give us peanuts. And we should be bothered they’re up in arms against each other.

Reading the news, one would be able to foretell most of what Talk Bullcrap Joshua has PROPhecied. Reasonable people would be planning ahead on how best to shield and protect themselves from any effects that might arise due to the war. Ensure that our soldiers and children are not once again used as mercenaries and dumped like condoms.

Russia has more nuclear war heads than USA does? Huh? According to the START Treaty, I though both had the same amount of nuclear war heads? Please people, yall should speculate the truth. Besides, Russia might have war heads as well as U.S., U.S. has more modern offense and defense tech advantage over Russia even with nuclear capabilities. Ever asked yourself where their $600billion budget is going to? That is 7x more than what Russia spends annually, 7x more than what China spends on defense. Other than this part, I agree with other parts of your assessment. China might not sustain economic power because of few reasons.

What people don’t realise is that we are already on about WW5 or 6 or even 16 depending on where you are counting from. If we are to just look at the modern era, in the last 2 or 3 hundred years then WW1 would actually be the 7 years wars, also known in US as the French and Indian War. So WW1 would actually be WW2 and WW2 would be WW3, Then there is the gulf wars etc etc.

The dollar is in an even more precarious position or at least as precarious a position as the euro. These currencies are Fiat currencies and as a result are ultimately worthless. It is by film trick that they are making the dollar worth anything. If you really want to know what is going on then look at Gold. Gold is (together with oil) the real currency of this world. When Nixon freed the dollar from being tied to gold that was the beginning of the financial crisis that we are going through today. it allows america to just print money without actually having anything of value to back it up.

If you want to know which countries are going to get invaded then look at how much Gold they have because as global currencies collapse everybody is going to run back to gold and woe unto the people who have Gold but do not have the military to protect it.

Look at poor ol’ Gaddafi. The dumbass guy didn’t just accumulate Gold we went around talking about creating an african currency backed by Gold and independent of the dollar. That is about the worst threat that anyone could put on Europe.

[flash=400,400]

[/flash]

It remains unclear exactly why or how the Gadhafi regime went from “a model” and an “important ally” to the next target for regime change in a period of just a few years. But after claims of “genocide” as the justification for NATO intervention were disputed by experts, several other theories have been floated.

Oil, of course, has been mentioned frequently — Libya is Africa‘s largest oil producer. But one possible reason in particular for Gadhafi’s fall from grace has gained significant traction among analysts and segments of the non-Western media: central banking and the global monetary system.

According to more than a few observers, Gadhafi’s plan to quit selling Libyan oil in U.S. dollars — demanding payment instead in gold-backed “dinars” (a single African currency made from gold) — was the real cause. The regime, sitting on massive amounts of gold, estimated at close to 150 tons, was also pushing other African and Middle Eastern governments to follow suit.

http://thenewamerican.com/economy/markets-mainmenu-45/9743-gadhafis-gold-money-plan-would-have-devastated-dollarChina is today the biggest buyer of Gold. They are not wasting time even though US still has the greatest gold reserves. Most of the Gold does not actually belong to US. Other countries store their Gold in America so most of the Gold in America actually belongs to other countries. The Gold is stored underground in Fort Knox one of the tightest Military camps in the world. It’s a bit of a joke because non of those countries that store their gold in US is actually ever going to see their gold. When the crisis starts to kick in all US is going to do is confiscate all the Gold and there is nothing that any of the other countries can do or say about it.

Venezuela are trying to prevent that by demanding that all their Gold be delivered to Venezuela. this was on the news a while back, I don’t think that they managed to persuade Europe to give them their Gold back though.

Officials are under orders from Hugo Chavez, the country’s socialist president, to repatriate the nation’s gold reserves against the backdrop of a wider effort to nationalise its gold sector.

Last week Venezuela said it had safely received its second load of gold from overseas. It would not give much detail, but the first cargo welcomed by flag-waving crowds last month was said to be18 tonnes worth some $300m (£192m).

Chavez argues his nation needs to protect its gold from the economic turmoil in the West.

“I have nothing against Europe. I am just telling the truth,” he said. “Who knows if a king or NATO comes and issues an insane decree-law? That gold is ours.”

His opponents criticise the expense and security risks, and suggest he is secretly worried that Venezuela’s foreign reserves risk being frozen by sanctions.

Others say – with tongue firmly lodged in cheek – that the desire to keep his gold in physical form puts Chavez ahead of the curve in terms of investment trends.

Regardless, the country’s central bank, the holder of Latin America’s biggest gold reserves, is now busy bringing back some 160 tonnes of gold – the bulk of its foreign bullion reserves – held at banks abroad, including the Bank of England.

My own advice to Nigeria, as an equally rascally prophet in my own right, is to develop it’s mining industry in Gold, and to keep it top secret. We should just store the stuff jeje-ly and get ready to base the Naira on it when the world economy collapses. Whoever wants our oil should then pay for it in our own currency.

Re: Latest Important Prophecy By Prophet TB Joshua- Part I by 1forall: 3:15pm On Dec 12, 2011 Iran says it will not return US drone

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran will not return a U.S. surveillance drone captured by its armed forces, a senior commander of the country’s elite Revolutionary Guard said Sunday.

Gen. Hossein Salami, deputy head of the Guard, said in remarks broadcast on state television that the violation of Iran’s airspace by the U.S. drone was a “hostile act” and warned of a “bigger” response. He did not elaborate on what Tehran might do.

As far as I am concerned, there is already war in Nigeria or cant you see?
Bomb blast every other day killing innocent souls,
So much poverty in the midst of plenty,
Tokunbo goods is our national pride because they seem more original than the new ones even in price,
Policitians are only about their self enrichment,
Youths are unemployed and the drones of graduates are unbaked.
WAR! WAR!! WAR!! is already on unless it will get worse.

instead of u to b talking abt ur economical wahala and the fuel subsidy removal ; u are busy discussing Iran; Israel etc,

this is one reason why a revolution/mass revolt will b hard to b organised in Nigeria, because some Nigerians will put out after some time

Prayer Request | Emmanuel TV

In Mark 11:24, Jesus said: “Therefore, I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”

God can use any medium to express Himself. As you pray along with T.B. Joshua as he prays for the viewers, remember that believing is our connection to Christ Jesus.

Prayer is an expression of belief. Because we believe, we pray (2 Corinthians 4:13).

As you pray, we encourage you to begin to ask for God’s mercy and favor. Ask Jesus to help you to understand that in mercy, He has called you and blessed you. In mercy, He has called you and healed you. In mercy, you and I are not excluded.

This I recall to my mind,

Therefore I have hope.

Through the LORD’s mercies

we are not consumed,

Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning;

Great is Your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:21-22
