Grace Harvest Ministries International leader and founder Prophet TB Bondera of Mabvuku Tafara Harare has become one of the Pentecostal religious leaders to openly encourage his members to embrace the Covid-19 vaccination exercise.
The prophet has took on; on all his ministry’s social media platforms with scriptural messages encouraging his members on the importance of vaccination.
The messages are accompanied with hashtags #MaskUp,#Sanitize,#Social Distance and #GetVaccinated.
In one of the messages he states that;Covid19 vaccinations is not the sign of the beast neither is it a death sentence like many other people are claiming.
“Covid19 like any other diseases of the past is just a sign of the prophetic timeline meaning; ‘The End of the Age’. It simply means we are coming out of another age of time and entering another age of time, as we approach the end times, and this age we are entering which we believe will end with rapture. Therefore we need to prepare by prayer and hearing from God more, but that can only happen if we gather. By not gathering as children of God we will be disobeying the instruction by God that we must constantly gather in worship,” he said.
The development comes at a time government eased the lockdown,Level 4 to allow vaccinated members only to attend sit-in church services.
This was expected to trigger a spike in vaccinated citizens considering that 70% of Zimbabwe’s population is religious with the majority being Christians.
