article imageAll Answers Event of the Universal Church in South Africa Special

By Abram Mahlaba     Sep 27, 2010 in World
Pretoria - About 36,000 people gathered at Eesterus Stadium in Pretoria yesterday in what was dubbed by the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God as ‘All Answers Events’ in South Africa.
The controversial Universal Church, which has been accused of unfounded rumours of Satanism since its arrival in South Africa from Brazil in 1992, has grown enormously. It had since built multi-million cathedrals around the country and the neighbouring countries doing charitable and evangelic work in prisons and hospitals all around South Africa.
In his opening prayer, Bishop Marcelo Pires, who is responsible for the evangelic work in South Africa, asked God to bless those seeking the ‘impossible answers’ like healing from HIV/AIDS and other incurable diseases.
He told the congregation: “You’re not here by coincidence; God wants to set you free. Maybe the only reason you decided to come today was to please the person who invited you, thinking that you’re here without any real purpose. But the only reason you’re here is because God brought you here and wants to change your life. He has great plans for you.”
He continued to tell the people that the real reason why they do not get answers from God as quickly as they are supposed to is because they’re scared to ‘walk on top of the water’ as Peter did as he was called by Jesus.
He said: “Your real problem is not that cancer or HIV that you have, it is not those debts and the drug addicted son that you have, but doubts and fear that impedes you to ‘walk on top of the water’ like Peter did when he was called.
“The God of the impossibles, the God who opened the sea is going to heal you from that HIV and make you see, you who are blind and make you walk who are lame. He has done it before, why don’t you allow him to do it now when we make this strong prayer.”
When the ‘strong prayer’ was made, many people fell and were brought to the pitch of the stadium by the church’s assistants and many of them claimed to be healed from the various physical diseases.
“I came to this event because I wanted many impossible answers in my life. Although I do not feel or see anything right now, I believe that God has answered me already,” said Ernest Senamela from Andries branch, Pretoria Central.
“I have an incurable disease that I cannot mention, but I’m going to take a blood test tomorrow as I believe that a miracle has taken place in my life today. I saw many people, some even closer to me healed from the so-called terminal diseases in the church before and I believe that it is now my turn today,” said Boitjie Tlamme.
