Self-proclaimed prophet Paseka “Mboro” Motsoeneng has seemingly taken credit for the ongoing rains across South Africa and Zimbabwe.
Over the past several weeks, Motsoeneng has been praying and “prophesying” for rain and an end to the drought.
He has posted numerous videos on his Facebook page declaring his prophecy that it will rain every week for seven weeks.
‘It’s incredible; it’s happening’
Earlier this week, he wrote, “Every week for seven weeks, it’s going to rain in Jesus Name. Ekurhuleni, Tshwane, Free State, Zimbabwe and Lesotho in Jesus Name.”
In an interview with Africa News Agency on Friday, he was emphatic that the rains came as a result of his prayers and prophecy.
He said, “I was sent as the voice that would bring solutions from God to this country and our neighbours. I sent a message to Ekurhuleni Mayor [Mzwandile Masina] telling him not to worry because I was prophesying rain for the next seven weeks.”
The preacher also took to his Facebook to declare that “it’s incredible; it’s happening” as soon as the rains began to fall.
He wrote, “Let it rain. Fill the dams, end the drought. Lord we prayed, Lord we thank you for honouring the Prophetic word of your Prophet Ntate Moporo Motsoeneng.
“God is continuing to confirm his word with signs and wonders by the anointing he placed upon his Prophet Motsoeneng. It’s Incredible. It’s Happening bhoo.”
‘God gave me power’
In a video, Motsoeneng also declared, “Rain is my baby. God gave me power over the skies, over the clouds, over all principalities and powers of darkness. I have the power.”
Motsoeneng is the founder of his Incredible Happenings church. On his Facebook page, he describes himself as an “international healing minister, entrepreneur, motivational speaker and public figure.”
He has a large following on social media, with his Facebook followers numbering more than 80,000.
He broadcasts his church services and “evangelistic sermons” live on Facebook as well as on Kasie FM 97.1, Soweto TV and 1KZN TV.
