Bulawayo-based Prophet Blessing Chiza yesterday dared his Faith in God (FIG) Eagle Life Assembly flock to bring their dead relatives to the church so that he can ‘resurrect’ them.
Prophet made the bold declaration during a Sunday morning church service saying his level of faith is at the highest.
“I am on another level of faith, last week I told you that if your relatives pass on, you should bring them to this church so that they will be resurrected, but you thought I was not serious. I am telling you now that if your family member passes on, you should bring them here and you will witness a miracle being performed,” said Prophet Chiza, amid thunderous applause from the congregants.
The now popular Bulawayo prophet said at one point in his life he commanded his small radio he used to own back in the day to stop playing secular music.
“I only listen to Godly music and nothing else and my room mates used to play their earthly music using my radio and I had problems with that. I then commanded the radio to refuse to play their Bob Marley cassettes using my faith and it did so,” said Prophet Chiza.
He said when his room mates came to play the circular music in his absence, the radio chewed their cassettes, but “when they put a Charles Charamba cassette it played well.”
Prophet Chiza acknowledged that he tried to resurrect a number of people to no avail, he recounted his past experience where he was chased away from Parirenyatwa Hospital mortuary by security personnel, as he attempted to resurrect dead people at that morgue.
Prophet Chiza is facing a public backlash for incorrectly predicting that the Zimbabwe national football team would beat Libya and proceed to the final of the African Nations Championships (Chan).
On the eve of the match which brought Prophet Chiza troubles, he said Zimbabwe would beat Libya 3-0. Zimbabwe went on to lose 4-5 on penalties to Libya.
It all started well for the prophet who correctly predicted Zimbabwe would beat Mali 2-1 in the quarterfinals.
The prophet however came unstuck in predicting the semi-final result between the two underdogs at the tournament.
