Spirit Embassy founder Prophet Uebert Angel has claimed to have prophesied the death of former South African President Nelson Mandela. The 95-year-old anti-apartheid icon died in Johannesburg on Thursday evening.
Its claimed Prophet Angel gave this Prophecy in South Africa on December 1, 2013 and four days later Mandela died. In a video statement issued by the Spirit Embassy church and read out by Zimbabwean Radio and TV legend Tich Mataz, the church said:
“On Sunday the 1st of December 2013 during a live Sunday Service Prophet Angel gave another prophetic word concerning the death of the revolutionary leader and first black president of South Africa and admonished the congregants to pray over the life of the former statesman.
The Church said “Prophet Angel interrupted his sermon to deliver this prophecy. He clearly stated:
- The status as a former Head of State
- The country from which he comes from
- His exact age
In another separate statement the Spirit Embassy Church said:
“For those who were there on Sunday, God had already spoken through Prophet Angel in his usual unprecedented accuracy making mention of the passing away of this South African former head of state this week.
“God’s revelation is tied up to his redemption and today we celebrate the legacy of a revolutionary leader in Nelson Mandela since God had already revealed in order to redeem.
“There are times when God gives us the grace to change a situation and there are times when we aren’t but always, when God speaks, it is the duty of the Prophet to communicate for prophets are devoid of personal opinions. They speak what God speaks,” the church said.
Angel has in the past claimed to have prophesied the death of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher; the rampage by a lone gunman in the US who killed 20 children and six adults at a primary school in Connecticut, the Westgate terrorist attacks in Kenya, Manchester United winning the league title last year and now Nelson Mandela’s death.
