The other side of Uebert Angel

HE has been called all sorts of names — Man of God, a fake prophet, a trickster and fraudster — because of his antics and miraculous powers on the pulpit.

Staff Reporter

His critics say he is arrogant and extraordinarily opulent —attributes not associated with Christianity. They doubt his powers to produce money from thin air and his ability to heal the sick and the lame.

But besides the hullabaloo of where he draws his miracles and powers, Uebert Angel’s life behind public glare is that of an unheralded philanthropist. Through the Hand of Mercy (Home), an arm of his Embassy Ministry, the youthful Angel has helped thousands of needy and vulnerable people in Zimbabwe and the region.

Home was launched at the inception of the ministry in 2007 with an ambitious programme to assist the downtrodden, outcasts and less privileged people in society.

“The patron of Home, prophetess Beverly Angel, wife to Uebert Angel, together with her husband, has been ministering to the poor, the marginalised and less privileged of our society since the inception of the ministry,” said Spirit Embassy official pastor Mike.

“It has not been an afterthought, but rather a core facet to the ministry.”

Home has adopted multitudes of families under its Adopt a Family Scheme. The families get supplies of groceries monthly and some of them have school fees for their minors paid.

It also runs a soup kitchen for the elderly at Bako reDonhodzo in Highfields, Harare. Every Friday, Beverly and the Home team serve full course meals to the elderly at Bako reDonhodzo.

“The elderly now have something to look forward to every week,” pastor Mike said. “The Hand of Mercy also makes it its responsibility to provide toiletries, clothes and blankets to the elderly at this home and to do just about anything with the potential of bringing a smile onto faces of the elderly and making their living conditions hospitable.”

In Mutare, Angel and his wife fed, clothed the elderly at the Zororai Old People’s Home. Beverley has also donated blankets, sheets, pillowcases and various medical consumables worth thousands of dollars to Mutare General Hospital.

Angel’s scope of help goes beyond Zimbabwe. In Botswana the couple adopted a 74-year-old widow Jessie Molahlehqi and her four grandchildren who were living in appalling and abject poverty.

“She had no means to cater for her four dependents and was relieved to know that all material needs such as clothing, food and full scholarships for her four dependents was to be provided by the couple (Angel and Beverley),” the official said.

“On top of that, the prophets Uebert and Beverly Angel built for her a well-furnished and air conditioned three-bedroomed house, changing her gloomy life into bliss. Prophet Uebert Angel himself was involved in the building process, pushing wheelbarrows and doing shovel work.”

In Zambia, Beverly donated various hospital materials worth thousands of dollars to the University of Zambia, said the ministry’s website. The exact figures of the donation were not provided. The donation included bedding material and other essential items.

After the donation, the dean of the School of Medicine at the University of Zambia said: “We rely on the government for any support in terms of medical equipment and material needs. No one has ever come on board like you have.

“To impact the community and the hospital like you have done is really a welcome breath of fresh air and relief in times of ailing. For us really, your initiative of putting on board our wards and specifically, Ward E22, is a moment that must be underlined.”

In response Beverley said: “The word of God says, true religion is helping those who are in need. The Bible also says that when someone asks you for something and you can see that they are struggling, you don’t say, ‘God bless you’ and leave them as they are. If you have the money in your pocket, you take out your money and you change someone’s situation with it.”

The couple has since identified and adopted 10 primary schools in the country in Matabeleland, Manicaland, Mashonaland and Masvingo.

“The couple will be paying fees for the entire school, making a huge difference in these communities. We are going to inform you, should we have the liberty to do so, of the amount that they will use under the scheme to be named Adopt a School scheme,” Angel’s spokesperson said.

  3. Man of God blessed whatever yu do

  4. archie muskwe chitsike

    God gave us prophets and pastors,evangelists,decons for the pefections of saints.I found it so intresting w people who call u names.don’t look at it they are fullfing their deveil ministry.some of the pastors who also criticise are but the failures dd God say go and preach about each other?they don’t the wisdom u have and grace is s also unfair,what they can’t do or know does not make things wrong.Yo babies preach the gospel but to adults teach wisdom.they preach Christ in u the hope of glory,which glory to tell people Peter walked on top water amen and let’s go home?don’t stop here!

  5. Opening homes, feeding the poor, orphans and so on is not a mandate of prophets, prophets are there to share the word of God. All these works can be done by anyone . As pastors our main goal should be to become fishers of man. If we have the funds to do those other activities let us donate to relevant government ministry who are qualified to handle social services and we concetrate on preaching the word of God. I do not agree that pastors and christians who centre their gospel on works are saved. I do not understand why pastors today have deviated from what they have been called for.

    1. You are a Pharisee. Do your part and quit criticizing the good others are doing.

    2. Very true indeed. I agree with you 100%. Its all a scandal. Suck people’s moneys and on the other hand try to do good and look good

  6. Tell me will these works save people, will these works make people get convicted that they are sinners? The pastor should be preaching the word of God zvaiita anaPeter, zvemahomes ozvisira vamwe. Pakuitamahomes ndipopakuzoparidza vhaneri renhema.

    1. iwe u knw nthn abt ministry go bk and read Yo bible the instruction tt Jesus himself gave abt wt he called the “true fast”

    2. Why not focus all your energy in saving the people instead of diverting your attention to other peoples’ business. Angel is just another human being brought here by God for a purpose, what he does good or bad is not for you to judge, God is there to do that. Please stop venting your hatred for other people while pretending to be a savior, and know that people will always believe what they want to believe.

  7. May God bless you Prophet, 1 day i’ll b like you

  8. True Christianity is Love…true and pure Love is in Giving…thank you Spirit Embassy for fullfilling the core Call of Christianity-God bless you..Actually i think the journalist got his/her headline wrong-from what i read…this is the true and only side of Prophet Angel not the other side of him.

  9. Salvation I agree with u 100%. Muchazviona kwazvinoperera mwari haasi wekutamba naye uchiita mashiripiti nezita rake. Pliz repent and be saved u ‘so called man of GOD’. I will not judge u but I just look and wonder where this world is coming to. Money from thin air? I wonder

    1. True bro, I do agree with. Peter and John said to the beggar, silver and gold do we have not but in the name of Jesus, rise up and walk.

  10. Another PR job by the reporter

    1. What PR job are you talking about here. All you want to hear are negative Angel stories?

  11. Awol. ThiS information need to be verified first,I don’t trust this paper,they can be bought to write anything by anyone who has money.

    1. so you dont need to verify when the bad stuff is said?

  12. True love is demostrated by giving we do thank God, for his faithfull servants like Prophet Angel and many other people of God who are making this world a better place to be.

  13. awesome. kip up the good work Man of God

  14. @ La vida,
    I cannot agree with you more! In journalism it’s called a “Puff Piece” or PR job and like anyother “job” it is paid for somehow and by somebody!

  15. The beginning is the source of funds, the problem with our infor givers is they screen, for transparency there ie need to highlight at least a figure for us to know wat was donated, how come we know that used socks fetched $1500. Still wondering

  16. Some pastors. have the business of sourcing funds from overseas in the name of building orphanages, looking after the widows, feeding the poor etc, when in actual fact the
    proceeds will never rich the intended beneficiaries, churches should now pay taxes and be transparent in all their financial transactions.Their business is to preach the gospel and not to fulfill their personal agenda. Can anyone tell us the history of Angel, his ministry success and failure when he was in UK. He is a clever guy, he so to it that there was recession in England and thought of coming to Africa, in particular Zimbabwe where money is easy to get.

These pastors never go to preach in rural and remote areas, they never set up their homes for orphans in remote areas, they concentrate in urban areas where they can easily manipulate and milk people;s hard earned cash.

And who said your church constitutions are biblical? Where in the bible do we hear of a church constitution?

  24. Oh how loud the ignorant are. If he preach what he did not practice that would make him a hypocrite.

  25. See the Pope turned down a limousine,takes a bus to work.

  26. Whatever. These guys are selling papers so there has to be something about him or Makandiwa everyday. leave us the hell alone Mr Reporter. Your article causes more confusion than giving answers. A man of God does not need anyone to defend him, so Mr Reporter let Angel come to his own defense. The Son Of Man, Lord Jesus Christ was never defended by anyone. When Simon Peter cut off the ear of the Solder, Jesus Christ instantly performed a miracle to put back the ear. Let those who believe In Mr Angel be and also let those who do not believe in him be.

  30. The Church is now a business entity. I was pleasantly surprised at the riches of the Roman Catholic Church. If the Pope was to auction his golden headdress and rings it would feed a million people. The primary aim of today’s churches is to be a successful business then all the philanthropy stuff is secondary. Its a way of sanitising a business that preys on the fear of the unknown and promises of riches. Had we not been colonised, we would not have known who Jesus was. The Kingdom of God is a myth perpetrated by those who wanted to make people docile so that their earthly powers are not challenged.

  31. Everything on earth is temporary. People need salvation more than anything else. Mat 6v33. Its good to look after the poor but let’s not only give them material support, they need Jesus Christ for them to be saved.jhn 3v16.

  32. People misunderstand Prophet Angel: The man has too, too much love and understanding for people that if you are not careful you will mistake it for arrogance or abrasiveness. He will do ANYTHING he can to empty hell and fill heaven, but if you don’t understand the urgency of his purpose, you will think its arrogance. I love you Uncle Angel, you are the best!

  33. I salute you Prophet Uebert Angel and Prophetess Beverly Angel for the great work you are doing. May God continue to bless you with more and more

  34. And He said to them, whatever you give with your right hand let not your left hand know. Those who give in the light for people to see and be praised by men, I tell you they have already received their reward here on earth for out of their abundance they give.

  35. Kindly publish my article ,public really deserves to know .

  40. Oh my God, I am not a spammer !

  41. Talk of brown envelope journalism

  42. So, everyone is calling themselves, ‘prophet’ and their wives automatically ‘prophetesses’? How totally unscriptural. There were no ‘apostlesses’ in the Bible, much less ‘prophetesses’ purely because their husbands were prophets.

  43. Major ndimi. Kuti zvisemese. Asvotwa ngaarutse. Yu ar a real man of God. I love yu Uncle Uebert Angel

  45. Jesus sent the disciples to preach the gospel and told them never to carry any gold or silver in their pockets.this is contrary.only time will tell

    1. tawanda makandiwa

      Nhai peter kana vadzidzi vanga vasina mari sei Peter akapfura nepa gate called beautiful. This was a gate raipinda nevapfumi ka iri. uyezve sei governor Felix aida bribe from Paul? Imagine gorvernor soliciting for a bribe from a man of God. Iwe woti Paul aiva asina mari. Wakapusa zvinobhohwa.

    1. tawanda makandiwa

      If he told them not carry gold or silver then that means they had it ka? But for some reason in this instance they were not supposed to carry gold and silver. Most fools think the apostles were poor when in fact they were rich. When Peter healed the lame man they were entering the synagogue using the gate called Beautiful. And this gate was not a povo gate, it was so called because that’s were the rich people entered the synagogue. Maybe you will dispute this, let me give another example. When Paul-the one you love so much, was arrested by governor Felix, Felix actually came to Paul wanting him to offer a bribe. A bribe, yes a bribe. Can you imagine a situation where a governor will expect a bribe from a man of God? This should tell you that Paul was no ordinary man of God. He was rich. And Felix took him for one the ordinary man of God like the ones we have today who think that the church submits to the world.

Majaira kungoshoropodza ka.

U start critising him. Munonyadzisa Ruvengo rwenyu. The gud deeds being overlooked by the bad. Such is life of A black Person. Whatever U say will not shock us.becoz even jesus was critisised so what would suprise us?becoz. Where there is God there is Persecution. Becoz the devil will be @ work. What suprises me is that those so called righteuos Churches leaders are not being critised so who are U following becoz the Disciples were beaten ,improsoned for ollowing Jesus. So when people are Quiet on u then what’s that?don’t tell me jesus took that to the cross becoz then where is the taking of the cross together with Christ?which makes U one with him. So what’s happening doesn’t moves us. God is with us through Prophet Urbert Angel and Prophet Makandiwa. God Bless U my Fathers.

    1. False prophets have always been associated with the Church of God “landscape.” On the surface, they rarely appear to be what they are. Just as Paul warned of “false apostles who come as angels of light” (II Cor. 11:13-15), false prophets can also appear to be “angels of light.”

      Paul also warned that certain deceivers have an amazing ability to “transform” themselves into something that they are not. Herein lies the danger. History shows that when false leaders or false prophets appear, the majority of people—in the Church or the world-at-large—are perfectly willing to let them get away with their actions!

      1. Please tell this man NOT to perform his SLIGHT of HAND using the name of the LORD. That is magic and not CHRIST LIKE. It is a dangerous thing to play with the name of the ALMIGHTY. Does he really know who GOD IS?

        However, the Bible speaks very plainly regarding supernatural phenomenon, citing two sources from which they may emerge. Either they are from God, who speaks through “holy men … as they were moved by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:21), or they are from the devil, who comes with “all power, signs and lying wonders”
        (2 Thessalonians 2:9).
