WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Controversial Prophet Walter Magaya charges people to sit on chairs that he “anoints” with oil.
- He claims that sitting on these anointed chairs will make a person 10 times more wealthy within a span of five years.
- Thousands of people have made their way to Magaya’s church in Zimbabwe to sit on these “anointed chairs”, whether they share the faith or not.
The Bible says that God’s love for us is unconditional. However, one man in Zimbabwe believes the exact opposite, saying that “Salvation is not free.” That man is none other than the leader of the Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries — Prophet Walter Magaya.
Prophet Magaya follows through on these words by charging an amount of $500, equivalent to K5,300, for people to sit on anointed chairs from his church. He pours so-called “anointed oil” on the seats of plastic chairs, to “bless” them. People who made the payment can take the chairs to their homes.
The controversial prophet says that those who sit on these anointed chairs will have 10 times the amount of money they paid in just 5 months. He also goes on to add that the miracle chairs will continue to bless the congregant with wealth for up to 5 years and that the person would be ten times more wealthy.
It may sound completely outrageous, but there have been thousands of people, whether they share the Christian faith or not, who have flocked to Prophet Magaya’s church.
They willingly handed over their $500 payments just to sit on the anointed chairs in hopes that they can become ten times richer in five years.
