The events of 1998 stay-aways thrust one stocky fellow onto the socio-politico issues of Zimbabwe, this was the entrance of Morgan Tsvangirai onto the political scene of Zimbabwe. He had pulled off a major stunt that resulted in looting and deployment of the military in urban areas, who can forget the tear gas when our hoods were turned into a war zone? Soon the brainy among the society pushed for a political party, Morgan Tsvangirai had demonstrated that he has the pedigree that most in Zimbabwe dreaded, to face up to the brute of Mugabe’s regime. It was a silent giant that silently crushed any opposition to its quiescence, Tekere and his ZUM had tried something long after Joshua Nkomo’s ZAPU had been crushed in pursuit of one party state, something that Mugabe craves even to this day, hope the certificate he was handed by one phony man of Baal will somewhat appease his old spirit. We rallied behind Movement for Democratic Change, Morgan had the charisma and simplicity which most would fall in love with, going with his slogan Chinja Maitiro, a slogan which has outlived “ivhu kuvanhu”, “upfumi kuvadiki”, “Zimbabwe Will Never Be a Colony” and other litany of such coined by ZANUPF. What we never imagined is how this sleeping monster called ZANUPF was ruthless, I am sure this monster has a seat in hell, if Jesus the Son of God sits on the right hand of Jehovah, I imagine ZANUPF has a seat on the left side of the devil himself. Many a times I have entered into debate with staunch ZANUPF supporters, who double up as CIOs but mostly are genuine Christians, when the debate got heated we ended up asking one another if what ZANUPF was doing was right before God? The famous response I got many times was “Ru you know my stand regarding violence”. Those same CIOs sought wisdom of God I am sure, they are not stepping into Zimbabwe before or on 31 July 2013, you might be sent on an errand to abduct, kill or torture and find yourself on 10 August sentenced to life in prison.
What is evident is that this monster had things worked out from 2000, but what they never could quench was the dissatisfaction by the people of its ways land reform was a perfect alibi to butcher and maim, but it soon came to an end, for the first time SADC and other African countries got to see the face of the monster how it was fast killing and consuming its offspring. This was a mammoth monster I imagine, perhaps if God could reveal the spiritual strongman behind ZANUPF’s brute how horrendous would it be? I leave that to imagination. Soon SADC sought to protect the offspring; it absorbed most of them into its care who also cared for those left behind. To the people of Zimbabwe we thought dislodging ZANUPF was a physical battle, a vote here and it’s a done deal. We were day dreaming, ZANU ndeyeropa, we had not awakened to the true meaning of this, and little did we know it was baying for spiritual blood. Thank God for that man, Thabo Mbeki, how we loved lampooning him then,. But he knew the dangers of awakening the monster that its power was being chipped little by little, nudging it out of its comfort corner.
While SADC did its bit, the people’s eyes were opened to the spiritual reality. Why is it we humans try out of our own fallible intellect before asking God Infallible wisdom? Zimbabwe soon found itself seeking God in ways we never did before. Prophets soon became the talk of the nation, Emmanuel Makandiwa and Uebert Angel wowed the nation with miracle gold, miracle diamond et al. At the beginning of the year Makandiwa made a prophetic proclamation of seeing a great wall coming down and he could not elaborate because of the environment, many alluded to the fact that he did not want to awaken the monster to its demise lest it sinks with many of the offspring. Then there was that Judgment Night at National Sports Stadium which attracted over 100,000 people. The theme was the enemy of the people will die. The loquacious Zimbabweans pointed to Robert Mugabe and ZANUPF leading to Makandiwa refusing and saying it was anything that stood in a person’s life be it enchantment or sorcery. These past 3 months, I have hardly heard from Makandiwa or Angel, they are quiet, I am sure somewhere in the mountains you will find them praying and interceding for the nation and elections.
Jordan House earlier made a prophecy about political change coming to Zimbabwe. Who remembers Cindy Jacobs’ prophecy, given 31 October 1998, here it is again verbatim:
"The river is going to flow through Zimbabwe and I see a powerful
torrent of water, a mighty rushing torrent, many fish. I see that there are strongholds in the church, of division and the accuser of the brethren is active to discourage souls. An army of women with the Deborah anointing will march across the land. They will be like a net all over Zimbabwe with prayer. With a powerful anointing, the women first and the men following. I see ancient thrones coming down,reconciliation between black and white, the spirit of racism which goes back further down the tribes.
I will use Zimbabwe like a jewel, she will help feed the world with
beautiful produce. God will break the curse that came through civil war - the curse will be broken. (I know nothing about Zimbabwe.) The land will produce beautiful beef. New factories will be built. Zimbabwe has the ministry of reconciliation that will unite the African people. The anointing of reconciliation will be all over Zimbabwe. Do not be afraid of the change, although it looks like you are going backwards. I have a plan for you.
Satan thinks he is advancing, but I will expose wickedness at high levels. Do not be afraid. Satan will try to bring war; this army will be used to stop war and bloodshed. A treaty will be written with other nations. Zimbabwe will be like Switzerland to bring the healing of nations - to break ancient things. Your nation came through trickery but God will restore it. You will be given a piece of land - a beautiful place to pray. You will build a place to watch and pray. It will be like a compound with a place to sleep. The Annas will give their lives for intercession. Senior citizens will have places to stay and give their time to pray day
For long we debated this prophecy, pondered it and tried to enquire into it. But when we look at Zimbabwe in 2013, 15 years later, we can see a difference. The crises of life sent people scurrying for spiritual cover; people were no longer timid Christians. When we look, would we be called drunk to say God has raised an army of prayer warriors? There were those foolish times we thought the army to stop bloodshed is a physical army in the mould of ZNA, how foolish we were to marry the prophecy with the realities which we want? It was an army of prayerful people. I remember Kenneth Hagin saying, prayer and especially prayer in tongues will deliver to you the victory that has been won in the spirit. As far as God is concerned, Zimbabwe is a done deal!
So like Elijah who went to Mount Carmel to pray for rain, he tarried in prayer with his servant not seeing any sign of rain but the reality in the spirit realm is that God had already sent forth rain over the land. So let’s continue in prayer for our nation, for our people, for those against the will of God. Trying to overthrow the anointing is no easy thing, the devil will push you and continue to push. If you do not switch sides and lose on the devil’s side, he can destroy you. It is my prayer that none would be found guilty to stand before the hangman or firing squad on account of their deeds on behalf of the devil. The devil uses, kills and discards if you fail, that is why everyone who joins Satanism will be told if you fail then you have to die, it’s to kill the truth that he is a defeated foe. So rejoice Zimbabwe, you came a long way, remain steadfast in prayer and intercession, like Kenneth Hagin, “let our prayers bring us into the victory already won in the spirit."
This morning I woke up wondering why Morgan Tsvangirai’s rally was called, “The Cross Over”? Who advised him to name it as such? Maybe Nelson Chamisa who was in prayer most times according to his facebook wall. But let’s cross over indeed Zimbabwe. We don’t want to hear “Zimbabwe ndeyeropa again”, “Mbuya Nehanda must RIP” and the name of the Lord must be called upon our nation. Amen!!
