Mzuzu preacher Bentry Canaan Chawinga has asked Malawians to be wary of attention – seeking prophets and their patronising prophecies of doom.
Canaan, who Saturday held national emergency prayers for country, has branded as false the rest of the country’s prophets saying they don’t give direction and guidance in their prophecies.
Malawi, believed to be a God-fearing nation, has a bunch of such controversial prophets as Prophet Austin Liabunya and Prophet Kenneth Eagle of the holy Tabernacle Ministries in the capital Lilongwe
Both Liabunya and Eagle recently claimed that President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe will not escape this year alive.
But its been a bit of “hit and miss” with these prophets and their prophecies.
Liabunya, for example, made headlines last year when he first president former president Joyce Banda would win elections and then later changed his prediction and successfully predicted that President Peter Mutharika would win the presidential race in the May 20 tripartite elections.
But his prophecy that Hakainde Hichilema would emerge as the new President of Zambia backfired spectacularly when Edgar Lungu won the poll last month.
Canaan of Holy Nature Ministries told Nyasa Times in an interview that as ‘genuine prophets’ they would pray for the country’s problems currently rocking the country.
“We [Holy Nature Ministry] will pray about government, flood victims, homosexuality, protection of albinos and all Malawians,” said Canaan.
He said the rest of the country’s prophets are prophets of doom only interested in bringing about confusion.
Malawi has lately seen an influx of false prophets, he said. “They are false.”
He added: “When God shows you a prophecy He even shows you a solution. He can’t show you a prophecy without solutions. That is why I’m saying they are merely prophets of doom.”
He also lashed at the country’s government saying it was so much interested in getting money from the donors than from upholding the will of God.
“Malawi is no longer a God-fearing nation,” he said. “It is a donor-fearing nation that is ready to accept nasty things such as homosexuality all because of money.”
He said Malawi’s leaders must embrace God and Jesus Christ so that sanity is restored in the country.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
