  1. Spiritual things are difficult to judge , however we can learn from what biblical prophets did or whom they obeyed.
    A man of God has no power to do mirracles because he is just a servant of the one who sent him.Jesus said I can do nothing on my own except what my father tells me .
    This means Jesus didnt do miracles except his father who worked through him.
    Who realy is at the centre of the mirracle money the word of God is there to judge ; the widowed woman and her son and the prophet . Mirracles don not make one a man of God magicians are also named as prophets in southern africa .
    God instructed Moses to throw his stick on the ground and it became a snake , and the egyptian magicians did the same and their sticks became snakes.

    But who can judge in this generation of immitations .

  5. Thats pure nonsense. They investigated the church and closed it because they found that miracle money was real beyond reasonable double. so in other words they agree that indeed miracle money exists and they saw it? I like this confirmation. Miracles are real. Call it magic or whatever but God still performs miracles. The government has erred. Issues to do with religion do not need the government to superimpose itself on church matters. Nobody reported any crime against the church. The last time they tried this in Zimbabwe we heard someone saying “The nation is not run by prophecies but policies” and newspapers had headlines written so and so rubbishes Makandiwa prophecies. They even called press conferences. Look at them where are they now? Some are rotting in jail, some got retired, some are in self imposed exiled spewing vitriol on twitter claiming to know God and speak on behalf of God like Botswana. The whole group that tried to tax just less than three churches in Harare out of all the churches in Zim they are nowhere to be found. They are now crying victimisation. Botswana if i were you i would engage God’s servants professionally, peacefully with respect behind closed doors. Apa Botswana you have less than five source of income as a nation. Dont fight prophecy. Is miracle money a crime? How many witchdoctors out there who kill people and take away people’s livestock and money are roaming free in that nation? Some are even of government payroll.

    • Money laundering laws do not allow such activities. Can seriously destroy the economy if left unchecked. Botswana Govt is spot on. Even heaven would not allow such nonsense.

  6. People if you don’t understand zip your lips before God’s wrath descends on you.
    God is too big to be exhausted and God said do not touch my anointed and do my Prophets no harm.
    Are you God to judge Men of God.
    How can a civil engineer examine or judge a doctor?
    So you don’t qualify to Judge men of God.ECG die hard.
