Makandiwa to walk on waters like Jesus Christ

Makandiwa to walk on waters like Jesus Christ

By Correspondent

I will walk on top of dangerous Kariba waters to prove a point to those who still doubt me, the United Family International Church (UFIC) founder Emmanuel Makandiwa has said.


He said he would do so to confound those doubting his powers.

Makandiwa made the claim just before he jetted out to the United States.

Jesus walking on water, is one of the miracles of Jesus in the Gospels. Accounts of the miracle appear in three Gospels: Matthew 14:22-33, Mark 6:45-52 and John 6:16-21.

His spokesperson Prime Kufa told our correspondent the “man of God did not directly challenge anyone,” but was not amused by people who doubted him.

“All he said was people should not doubt miracles,” Kufa said.

“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.”

This is not the first time that Makandiwa has threatened to repeat the miracle performed by Jesus Christ.

“Why did Jesus Christ walk on water when he could use the available boats?,” Makandiwa said in a January 2013 sermon.

The charismatic preacher 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.

Makandiwa has told his followers to brace for more miracles declaring “people with disabilities will be healed; bald heads will grow hair while others without teeth will develop new teeth.”

The story tells how, following the miracle of the feeding of the five thousand, Jesus sent the disciples by boat to the other side of Lake Galilee while he remained behind, alone, to pray. Night fell, the wind rose, and the boat became caught in a storm. In the midst of the storm and the darkness the disciples saw Jesus walking on the sea. They were frightened, thinking they were seeing a spirit, but Jesus told them not to be afraid, they were reassured. Jesus calmed the storm and entered the boat, and they went on to the shore. According to a detail found only in Matthew, Peter walked out onto the water towards Jesus, but he became afraid and began to sink, and Jesus rescued him.
