“Through Christ TV, we have managed to showcase the greatness of Jesus Christ to many people across the world and I am grateful to my wife for being the brains behind this,” Prophet Makandiwa said.

He added that music played a major role in the nation and it was important to appreciate and encourage local artistes.

Prophet Makandiwa added that Christ TV was there to take Christ to the nations.

He said it was also there with the aim of building a Godly society of all nations and the quickest and most effective platform of reaching out to people all over the world.

    What a great show.Let the zimbaweans be reminded that Prophets Emmanuel Makandiwa and Doctor Ruth Makandiwa are God’s generals filled with love.

    Imagine what they did by appreciating and motivating gifted gospel singers in zimbabwe.This is a great job and everyone invited got his award.

    Let us salute these Generals of God

    We Love you our spiritual parents Prophet Makandiwa an Prophetess Ruth Makandiwa

    1. its true my brother.The Prophets are serious givers hence tHE REASON WHY God favors them too much.

      Ummm they are annointed.I have never witnessed such an annointing since the creation.

      Let the Zimbabweans be reminded that those who are suffering from accidental injuries,cancer,HIV,Fibroids,mental damage e.t.c

      Pliz try to believe in the servant God has raised and you will see a miracle.just the prophetic touch you see miracles and all these infirmities are gone.

      Those who doubt watch christ tv and you will see.

  5. 2nd chron 20v 20—– ”’says that believe in His Prophets and you prosper”.

    To those who hate prosperity.this awards are a result of the prosperous nature of christ tv.

    In zimbabwe its your optional to be sick and to suffer becoz Jesus Christ himself has raised a the Apostle Paul,James,Peter e.t.c to deliver people from the bondage of the Egyptian system to the overflowing land of milk and honey which is canaan.

    COME TO UFIC AND BE DELIVERED DONT LISTEN TO THESE THEOLIGIES AND DOCTRINES OF PEOPLE WHO DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE PROPHETIC.OTHERWISE YOU WILL MISS YOUR MIRACLE.

  6. ZIMBABWE IS THE BEST COUNRTY TO BE

    LONG LIVE CHRIST TV.

  10. 2 Corinthians 6:14-18 “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
    And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
    And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in [them]; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
    Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you,
    And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”

    Luke 11:35 “Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.”

    1. Thank you. Ava varoyiwa nehuroyi hwaJezebel. Vanotsvaga Jehovah budayi mubhabhironi

  11. Ini ndazvitadza, but chikristu chaitwa bhawa nemaporofita enhema. Vana kaPfupi, naana chimbeto, naana ndaita Mwari vaneyi nevhangeri reropa. Glamour hausi huMwari. VaGaratiya vekusafunga makaroyiwa naani. Hollywood neVhangeri hazvina hukama. Chokwadi izvi zvakafanana nemakuna kuna. Chistu dzokayi zvenyu varoyi vawandisa panyika.

  12. ZvaMakandiwa kunge kuroyiwa chaiko. Nhai tenzi chechi zvayave bhawa

    1. taura hako ndiwe wega wakapenga unowona better than vaMAKANDIWA & mai they are going to be punished for that EXODUS 20 Usatambe neZita raJEHOVHA MWARI wako pasina so you rip what you sore

  13. God’s flock be advised, conformity to worldly standards will not bring the world to God’s church but will bring God’s people to the world. Rev 22vs10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book; for the time is at hand. 11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still; and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still; and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still; and he that is holy, let him be holy still. Maybe we shall see the world coming to God pamwe waya wanoteera heya heya wachoomwa mhamba waiwekoo. wanaBev wakazvikoniwa izvi, zvode mare izvi. Our God is jealous beware lest we cast pearls to swine

    1. iAM A FOOL IN Zimboh.it shows shalowness of mind.Ihave been sent by jealosy pastors.Long live Prophet Makandiwa.

  14. Forgive guys ndinopenga chete kutuka vanhu vaMwari nepabepa.

    ndokupenga uku manzwa.ini OSCAR NDOPENGAAAAAAAA

    1. Impersonator, I dont believe in worldly prophets like Makandiwa. He is nothing but a biblical Balaam, and a modern day Judas. Just like Esau, Who for the love of the of a meal ticket sold his birth right. It would be blaspheme to surely to take Moses and put him in the same league as Makandiwa.

  15. Nhai chakurwadza chii pa piwa vamwe mubayiro worldy ndeip apa vanozuwa shoko nezvenyika vana vakagoba kuchikoro vaipihwa mubayiro wani watsamwei wt is yr issue

  16. mwana wamuporofita Makandiwa

    u can judge the sons of Belial by the venom in their words, their desire is to drive us into their boat yet we can only say sail along serpents sail along. Chinombokubatai chii, chingotendaika zvamunotenda izvozvo isu mongotisiyawoka nezvatinotenda izvozvo
