Prophet Chiza hits back at critics


EAGLE Life Assembly leader Blessing Chiza used his church’s Sunday service to defend himself after he wrongly predicted that Zimbabwe will reach the just-ended African Nations Championships (Chan) finals.

Chiza had reportedly predicted that the Warriors would beat Libya 3-0 in the semi-finals played last week in South Africa.

He has been labelled a false prophet on social media after Zimbabwe was dumped from the tournament by eventual winners Libya.

But Chiza appeared to be blaming the media for misquoting him saying he had even prophesied as early as last year that he would be vilified by journalists.

A video that was reportedly made on May 19 2013 where Chiza made the prophecy about the persecution in the media was played at the fully-packed church in Bulawayo’s Thorngrove area yesterday.

In the video Chiza says: “I know there are some of you who see things, yet you don’t see things properly.

“There are journalists here who are going to say things. They are not going to say good things about me and this church.”

He also tells his followers that the negative publicity would only make him stronger.

“I encourage you to pray and remain steadfast. I will be in all the newspapers. I will be on page one, two and even on page three,” he said.

“In some newspapers there will be full-page articles with big pictures of me. I say this because I have been shown.”

After the video was shown, Chiza told the congregants that last week’s events were a fulfillment of the prophecy.

“It is not something new, we have seen it coming,” he added.

Some congregants told Radio Dialogue that they attended the church service where Chiza made the “prophecy” about the media coverage.

Before the false Libya prophecy, Chiza had correctly predicted that Zimbabwe would beat Mali in the quarter-finals. Last year he predicted that Highlanders would beat How Mine to lift the Mbada Diamonds Cup. After the Libya debacle he conceded that his prophecy was wrong.

“I admit that I didn’t see well, but I have always said that my prophecies are not 100% accurate because I am not God,” he was quoted saying.

  1. Aah Chiza, find help from other stable mature ministers about how to handle the media as well as to handle the gift in your life. You can’t be helped by your followers and admirers. If you are wise this is the time to listen to your critics. Stop saying I am not 100%, that means you are not working with the spirit of God or you are putting too much personal interpretation into the little you see or hear from God. How come prophets like Daniel would remind Nebuchadnezzar his dream and give the interpretation spot on. Avail yourself to counsel by senior men and women of God even if they are not as popular as you are. You will be safe. God bless and keep you dear brother.

  2. To Prophet Chiza, Yes indeed, to err is human and to forgive is divine.Go to Mark 11:vs 31-32. On other point is Prophet Chiza is avoid unnecessary wars with the Press.The best you can do is stay away from the Press, period.the Press can make or destroy you.Please keep away or have a Press handler who has the diplomacy and courtesy to tell the Press to go to hell so that they look forward to the trip. You do not need them if your works are really God given—word of mouth will market your good faith based works.Good Luck mpostola.

  3. Dnt wory prophet.God is with u .He said He wil nt leave us orphanes no matter what.i do believe tht a person can be 100% accurate in all depends on you,if i believe that i wont see more or enough then i and prophecy are linkd.what i believe is what i get from God.if i say i wont be 100% then i wont.continue growing in faith Prophet and i tell you, you shall truly see more.

  4. he is right to say he is not 100%…i have heard most prophets saying i pray for precision… what does that mean? Journalists ignored that part. i dont like some of these guys…..

  5. give the man of God a chance.Faith is about belief so if you do not believe do not judge lest you be proved wrong

  6. You are trying to fool the people of Zimbabwe and I think you have discovered that you have made a blunder by giving the wrong prediction. Who is going to follow you now/ Only fools are going to listen to you.

  7. The bible says in 1Cor 13:9…”for we know in part & we prophecy in part” when the man of God says he is not a hundred percent accurate he is right because the bible itself says it…people try to read & understand the bible first before judging the man of God badly for U do not know whether or not he is fake, #touch not my annointed ones# God careful what U say people God will attract curses upon ur lives most of U whp are commenting badly here are struggling to make a living because of ur loose tongues. Let his conhregates, his children support him at thi time because the bible says a man with children shall not be shamed, but his children will speak for him. He is our spiritual father & sorry to say we are not fools our church is even increasing in numbers because of this, those destined for greatness surely go through trials & tribulations, we do not expect lifr to be easy all the way, hence we accept what the world is throwing to us, tomorrow is ours, thrs a reason for errything.

  8. 20 But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death.”

    Deuteronomy 18: 21 You may say to yourselves, “How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the Lord?” 22 If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously, so do not be alarmed.

    Scripture is clear that a prophecy must be 100% accurate. “‘my prophecies are not 100% accurate’ shows that its his and not from God. Ngatendeuka kwete kuzvinyepera.
