Major 1 Bushiri: Prophet Bushiri named billionaire by Drum Magazine of SA: 'Wealth and holiness are intrinsically and linearly connected'

Major 1 Bushiri: Wealth and holiness are intrinsically and linearly connected’

In an interview published in the Drum Magazine of October 13, 2016,  arguably the most-talked-about man of the cloth at the moment, ‘Papa’ Bushiri underscores that  financial blessing is a guaranteed result of faith in God.

The Drum reports that it met  Bushiri  alias “Major 1”  for an exclusive  interview at Waterfall estate in Midrand, north of Jo’burg and he pulled up in a stately Bentley, with a pair of high-end German sedans tagging alongside.

“There’s always a motorcade,” Drum quoted a Bushiri handler. “Prophet never travels alone.”

Shepherd Bushiri the leader and founder of the Enlightened Chritian Gathering  (ECG)  house in an estate off the R55 in Midrand, Johannesburg is “ very large and grand with trappings of state-of-the-art design and décor”, the Drum reported.

A press search reveals that he has a fleet of luxury cars and private jets, in addition to his mansion.

“ What’s more, he’s a billionaire and basically a man who’s made good in life,” Drum reported.

The magazine asked him how he made his money.

“I’m not just a prophet,” he told them. “I’m also a human being who is a responsible person, married with kids. I am very business-minded.

“For example, the Bentley you saw earlier – I managed to buy it before I came to stay in South Africa. I bought houses in South Africa way before I opened the church less than two years ago in Pretoria.

“In short, I am a businessman. My wife, Mary, is a chartered accountant. She used to work for a big institution as a director of finance. I made her resign because of the business we do.

“I started out in business doing farming on a small scale,” he says. “It grew into a big scale operation, and from the profits we bought a small piece of land that had minerals. As it panned out, we sold that piece of land, but before we sold it, we did evaluation on the deposits there and they were worth quite a lot of money. We sold that land and, from the money we got, we’ve been investing in mining.”

Bushiri underscores during his ‘Diplomatic’ sermon in Pretoria this week that God rewards increasing levels of faith with greater amounts of wealth.

He prayed for one man and signed on a paper as a sign of sealing his miracle that he was going to be the second richest man in Africa as a result of many businesses, saying this would happen in seven months and commanded him to go and prosper.

Before December 31st, you will being to see sings and wonder,” he prophecied.

He told the congregation: “God has various plans for His children. Among His plans , are plans to prosper you. God wants to give you a future. Do not exist without a future. Receive prosperity, receive a future in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.”

Accoridng to Bushiri., wealth and holiness are intrinsically and linearly connected: the more holy you are, the richer you will be.

Bushiri has an investment firm called Shephered Bushiri Investments  and recently launched a Prophet Shephered Bushiri Network for mobile phones. He is expected to launch a Bushiri University. Among his investments, include hotels, mining, forex business and real estates.

    Major 1 is teaching us about hard work in whatever we do. He works hard for God and also works hard for his personal achievements. And these are the results. Not matter how many “I receives” we say if we don’t follow it with works for God to bless we will achieve nothing. Our works open the doors for God’s blessings. God will never bless a lazy person just because he says I receive. Well done M1

    Honestly this man has made Pastoral work a career worth pursuing. I think people now will begin to look at Pastors as people who can also succeed in Business. Pastors are not just beggers with Brifaces visiting one office and another, but they can also make it in business. Any Pastor reading this story must appreciate this man of God. You have made it Prophet Bushiri jealousy down, i admire you major 1.

  4. HOLY OF HOLY says:

    It a a waste to discuss about a man who is called by a god to be rich miraculously. ” I sold a piece of land and invest in mining” and now is a billionaire. “when you become more holy you become more rich” and now is a billionaire. “I have many posh cars and jets and expensive shoes and clothes is a prophet sent by a god” and is a billionaire. The issue here is miracles there will be understanding by explanation. I thank God for making him very rich.

  5. be humane says:

    the more holier you become, the richer or prosper you become????? This teaching implies that the more poorer you are the less holier you are meaning the more sinning you are. Is this ideology supported by scripture as alleged by Bushiri? Level ya kusauka kwao tells level ya uchimo wako? Level ya kulemera kwako depends on level ya chiyero chako? Look at how people have become rich with cashgate which is a sinful act. How then do we explain such things in life? I am not against Bushiri but just thinking aloud on his assertion of the more holy you become, the more prosperous you are

    Give credit where it is due. Our colleague is gifted with an investment mind. Some of us with the very same money we would not have done anything tangible…the saving and investment culture is just so good in Bushiri. Jealous sumuna…Kudos Major 1

    Enough respect to the young Prophet of our generation. I was blind, but now i see because of you Major 1. You really opened my spiritual eyes and indeed you are God’s special one. I am ECG member and always shall be. My life completely changed just by watching the prophetic channel at first before i joined ECG. Praise God! Malawi is recognised!
