The leader of Jabula New Life Ministries, Bishop Tudor Bismark, has accused fellow preachers, Prophet Uebert Angel and Passion Java of associating themselves with his ministry in a bid to earn international relevance.
The charismatic preacher made the accusations through his church’s official website as well as his Facebook page:
“Brethren in Christ, it is with much consternation and fretting that I write this open letter to you. You have known Chichi and I for many years, and you all know that we do not address petty issues in the open.
“We have always chosen to conduct ourselves with dignity and humility in our dealings regarding the Body of Christ.
“However, there has arisen a deep worry concerning two individuals who have been portraying themselves as men that fellowship with us and share our covering. These individuals are Passion Java and Uebert Angel, both of whom use the title of Prophet.
“These two individuals are not affiliated with Chichi and I, our church: New Life Covenant Church, our International Ministry Network: Jabula New Life Ministries, and Tudor Bismark Ministries.
The statement went on:
“In the past, I have met with both men for brief meetings, and our interactions had been peripheral at best.
We, Chichi and I and the ministries under our covering, do not endorse Passion Java and Uebert Angel, nor do we fellowship with them in any way. We have not sent them nor do they represent us in any capacity.
I must apologize for having to bring this to public light, but it is important that you, our supporters and friends, know that the values Chichi and I hold so dear, should never be misrepresented by anyone making baseless claims as to their affiliation with us.
“We have carved out a reputation over many years of walking upright in faith, and we will not allow a few individuals to corrupt or taint that.”
Both Prophet Passion Java and Prophet Uebert Angel could not be immediately reached to give their own side of the story.
UPDATE: We have since received the following response from Prophet Passion Java
I am responding using this platform because I have tried by all means to deal with it in the closet but to no avail.
I personally called Tudor Bismark and he clearly told me he is not correcting his mistake for his office reasons, he couldn’t give me proof of where he got what he wrote on his social media and he also said that he was going to write another one.
I thought I should come in the open to tell the world that, I’m under the covering of Prophet Angel & Bishop Noel Jones and I don’t seek for another covering.
Tudor Bismark and I we operate totally different for me to even think of him in my ministry, if you check all my videos there are a replica of the above 2 Generals not Bismark.
Yes I have met him for brief meetings 1,when he called me to come to his office, 2 when he came to my hotel room seeking to meet Bishop Noel jones 3 his wife Chichi only met her when she visited my church the 2 Of them I only met them for less than 20 min, so I ‘m really shocked by his statements.
Jabula ministry invited me to preach in New York City I didn’t manage to go – not for any bad reason but my schedule was full the whole of 2014, I appreciate Tudor Bismack for what he did and is doing in the body of Christ years ago and I respect him, his family and ministry. My main concern goes to the wounded innocent souls who where affected by his post personally I’m not and was not affected one bit!”
