Pastor Emanuel Makandiwa ,the founder of United Family International Church (UFIC) founder Emmanuel Makandiwa has said that he will walk on water like Jesus Christ did during his stay on earth.
Emanuel Makandiwa ,the Zimbabwean pastor who hails from the Central Province says that he will walk on top of the dangerous Kariba waters to prove a point to those who still doubt him.Makandiwa made the claim just before he left for the United States.
“They just need to believe and anything is possible even walking on water. He said if people are saying he is using evil spirits then they should come and be witnesses to his works or offer deliverance. He said God is able to make him walk on water if need be so that his critics can believe.” His spokesperson Prime Kufa told the Zimdiaspora.
The prophet has stirred controversy with his “miracles” including one in which a baby was reportedly born after a “three-day gestation period”. His UFI church is drawing crowds of up to 60 000.
Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa has established one of the biggest Pentecostal churches in Zimbabwe, United Family International Ministries (UFIM).
Originally a young pastor of the Apostolic Faith Mission (AFM), he founded the new movement in the years 2008-2010. His controversial public healing sessions and prophecies have won him both supporters and critics.
Makandiwa is increasing his influence in Zimbabwean society through a series of media-related acquisitions and expansion of church property to Chitungwiza, one of the most densely populated parts of the country.
In April 2012, tourism minister Walter Mzembi described Makandiwa as a tourist attraction, who draws huge crowds to his congregations.
