You would not be out of place in asking such a soul searching question after watching Prophetic Channel, a satellite television station based in South Africa and owned by the young prophet. More so, the Holy Bible admonishes Christians to be weary of the things to come in the latter days, because it will be a time when many would come as angels of light. We are in the days of the prophets; many demonstrating mind-blowing signs and wonders and prophesying deep into your life. The rise and rise of prophets in Africa over the past seven years has been phenomenal. Prophet Bushiri is one of many unknown men of God, who suddenly emerged from the backdrop to occupy a position many have been trying to rise to over the years!
In the cause of ministry, I have been privileged to see what many cannot see and decipher messages that come out of altars of men of God. Young Prophet Bushiri caught my attention some years ago while I was scanning through the myriads of Christian Channels on satellite television. Initially I thought to myself, this young prophet has what it takes to rise, if only he would play down on the display of his portrait by the altar. Years of watching Emmanuel TV and the very simple lifestyle of its founder, Prophet TB Joshua, had indirectly planted a standard of measure for me to assess upcoming prophets in Africa. Remember, the Bible says by their fruits we shall know them; since we’re in the dispensation of the prophets, one should not be carried away! So my tuning to Prophetic Channel, then in Bushiri’s native country of Malawi, was sparingly. Throughout 2014, I could count how many times I watched Prophet Bushiri’s Prophetic Channel.
However, after some short absence on the airwaves, Prophetic Channel emerged as a repackaged channel and now based in South Africa. The Prophet had also relocated from Malawi to Pretoria in South Africa. What I saw in terms of congregation in the Pretoria branch of Prophet Bushiri’s church was shockingly alarming! Three levels of worshippers in their thousands within a space of six months in South Africa, obviously this was going to pitch those who were there before him against his very presence. The only other man of God who could command such a large congregation in South Africa was Pastor Chris Oyakilohme of the Christ Embassy fame. The biblical saying that a prophet is without honour in his own country has replayed itself out in the case of Prophet Bushiri; the South Africa congregation of Bushiri’s church is 1000% of his previous Malawi congregation. As a testimony of whom Shepherd Bushiri, the prophet really is, the former President of Malawi, Mrs Joyce Bande spoke about her first encounter with the then seven years old prophet who came to pray for her. She couldn’t bring herself to kneeling down before a seven year old child prophet to pray for her, being the Vice President of Malawi at the time. Today, that seven years old child prophet has grown to be a shepherd of thousands in Southern Africa and beyond.
Two major miracles that has come out of Prophet Bushiri’s anointing that I believe stood out among the pack in 2015, is one in which a woman with uneven hands stretched the two hands and the shorter one visibly grew to level with the other. To show the power that he is carrying, Shepherd Bushiri, commanded the growing hand to grow beyond the normal one and it did before television cameras and viewers around the world. The next unbelievable miracle was one in which he prophesied to a man in the congregation and told him about a prayer retreat the man went to at a mountain. He then took someone’s ipad and focus it up and snapped using the camera apps. Well and behold, a picture of the man at the mountain appeared to the bewilderment of the man and everyone else. He repeated it a second time, the family of the man appeared in another photograph. We are truly in the end times. Take out time and watch Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, you can decide whether or not is from above and on an assignment which will be revealed at the appropriate time of life! Also pray for him not to be overwhelmed by the supernatural and fall away into super stardom like so many others before him, because the really test of the battle has not began yet in his young life. Jesus is Lord.
