Emmanuel Makandiwa Miracles:

On 18 November 2012, she and her husband went to the UFIM and was prayed for alongside other female attendees who had pregnancy complications. He prophecied that there would be a miracle baby born of a woman, and it came to pass. The baby, however, died mysteriously.

Prophecies On Covid-19 Vaccination:
In August 2020, Emmanuel Makandiwa foretold that hydroxychloroquine would be a cure for Covid-19. This was before scientists could even study and understand the virus.
At the release of the virus, he claimed that it “tampered with the DNA” and swore never to take it.
He said: “Are you not seeing the side effects of the previous vaccines? It’s not always in you dying, but look at Africa. If you’re still getting help from outside, those are the effects of having been vaccinated.
The way we think in Africa, our DNA has already been tampered with. Someone can be sitting today and is telling you, ‘look at me, I’m 90-years-old yet I was vaccinated whilst I was young, why are you afraid of vaccines?’ Ninety years, what have they achieved?
That lack of achievement is a result of that vaccination, you’re not thinking properly. That’s why this one (Covid-19 vaccine) that is coming no-one is raising questions, it’s because of the previous vaccines. You’re not thinking properly.”
In another sermon, the prophet said “when people begin to see the dark side of this thing (Covid-19 vaccine), it would be too late.”
“These people are very cunning. Don’t believe these world leaders that are being vaccinated on television. That’s not your vaccine, that’s not even a vaccine, that’s a lie.
Our leaders are not like Jesus, they’re never ready to die for their people. They would rather you all die, so that they live. They would never be the first ones to receive this thing (vaccine), why should you be deceived?”
On the contrary, on July 25, 2021, during a live broadcast, Makandiwa urged his followers to get vaccinated, as he refrained from his wide critical claim that the Covid-19 vaccine was the ‘Mark of the Beast’. He said:
“There is no chip in the vaccine. There is no mark in the vaccine. Christians are afraid, fearing for their lives and trying to protect themselves and their loved ones from receiving the mark of the beast by receiving the vaccine.
This is Covid-19 vaccine, not the mark of the beast. How many times did I say don’t rush, don’t be the first, let them have it first. If I am saying don’t be the first, I am saying be the last or second. Why should you be the first when it’s not your creation?”
