Prophet Blessing Chiza is the visionary and founder of Eagle Life Assembly who is inspired by God through the characteristics of an eagle. 

An apostle and prophet called to preach to many nations. Job 39:27-29 ‘doth the eagle mount up high at thy command, and make a nest? She dwelleth and abideth on a rock, upon the crag of the rock and a strong place. From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold a far off.

Born about seven years after his parents had gone through a traumatising experience of losing two daughters. His coming into the world was a great comfort to his parents Mr. Jackson and Ottilia Chiza who named him ‘Blessing Munyaradzi’ (meaning comforter) Chiza. As he grew up he had to face a series of challenges of fatal accidents which threatened his life twice including illnesses time and again.

While he was playing sometime back when he was grade one at Mabvuku Primary school, he got hit by a metal plate of a swing across the bridge of his nose which was broken causing serious bleeding and hospitalization in a coma. This affected his eyesight for some time but was eventually healed after his mother’s friend Mrs. Gwangwadza an Elderly lady intercessor from AFM prayed for him. He also suffered a fall from an over speeding truck where, he almost died, suffered serious deep injuries on his forehead, palms and knees.

Prophet Blessing Chiza is a miracle survivor in life by God’s grace from the devil attacks, unleashed by hell against his childhood, because they could sniff his destiny and calling. Prophet Chiza is a man who has a knack for excellence and living righteous life, which he achieved against the odds of growing up in a poverty stricken area in Chizhanje high density area in Old Mabvuku, which was one of the poorest areas in Old Mabvuku Harare and characterised by violence, where youths indulged in smoking and drinking. Having also at one time succumbed to drinking such that he was at one time called Papa Mabhule or Jah Wise Nyandoro for he was a leader of a street gang of Redbelt Karate bullies that uses to beat people.

Growing up in a Christian family, raised by parents who feared God and enforced values of Christianity into their children, he was channeled to the word of God and the teachings of Mrs. Gwangwadza who greatly influenced him, taught him the word of God though, she couldn’t covert Prophet to Christ. He also joined AFM in Africa Freedom Sengwayo church through a neighbour Munyaradzi Muswaka and received Jesus, He got out of gangs and managed to quit drinking, got intelligent at school but later backslide again because of influence of bad friends especially one that used to be close to him, known by a nickname popular in Chizhanje, who was called Sangoma.

He went to Mabvuku primary and high school which is where he received Jesus Christ in the early 1990s. There he began taking leading roles in the school’s scripture union. Together with other students they would pray in the school grounds and had conferences. During one of the conferences at Tafara High school in early 90s, he received his calling as a huge, massive eagle angel appeared from heaven, to his eyes after a preaching and come down with stretched legs and landed on the roof of a classroom. It was big to an extend he even thought in the physical the classroom was going to collapse, though later he realised that it was a spiritual vision.

A great and enormous eagle, size unbelievable, that spread its wings, with a white head and a white tail, landed with a strong wind blowing hard and even entered into his chest, this Holy Spirit filled spiritual wind made him strong and eager to win souls for Christ, from that day with unquenchable fire, He started from that day preaching in buses, Commuters, Schools, Beer Halls, Night Clubs, Rural Growth points, market places, first street Harare pioneers and door to doors. This Eagle angel encounter has the divine roots of Eagle Life assembly Logo, name, slogans, History, teachings that Prophet Chiza cherishes and teaches. He also heard a voice coming from heaven when he was praying at their home in Chizhanje at G74 Hunga St, saying he was called to be an Apostle and Prophet, to preach and evangelise everywhere and bring people to Christ.

He continued to preach the word of God. He later became in Mid 90s became a CU chairman at Kwekwe Polytechnic College, where his ministry intensified, grow and shook the city of Kwekwe. He was studying a Diploma in accounting while leading a Christian Union group that was so powerful, attracted big preachers, great men of God, crowds, many Christians in Kwekwe, did heavily attended all night prayers and he continued to preach unrestrained all over Kwekwe. As a result many students from Bindura University, NUST, University of Zimbabwe, many Poly Technical, Agricultural colleges in Zimbabwe including pastors from various churches come to fellowship under his CU ministry. He led other students in dedicating their time to outreach programs in rural areas, in Mberengwa, Gaha, Mhondoro, Mashayamombe, Shurugwi and Zvishavane among other areas, spreading the word of God. He was made chairperson of all Christian Unions in Zimbabwe called ‘FOCUS’ Fellowship of Christian Unions of Colleges in Zimbabwe.

Prophet Blessing miraculously found Faith In God Ministries International church and was mentored, groomed and shepherded to the spiritual level where he is now by his spiritual father Archbishop Asa Gurupira straight from Mabvuku High School SU (Scripture Union). He found Faith in God Ministries after God sent him there by an audible voice he heard on a Sunday morning of 1995 when he was washing his clothes. The Lord spoke to him to drop washing clothes and rise up immediately on a spiritual journey, there in Mabvuku, that very day God would show him his church of destiny, promotions and calling, he was to go to be a child of that church.

After a long disappointing, fruitless day of going in from church to church in Mabvuku area searching for his God given church, on his way from Old Mabvuku back to his home place, of Chizhanje, miraculously passed by a place called ‘The Soup Kitchen’ which was where FIG Ministries was meeting and at that time it was called (CLC) Christian Life Centre. Upon hearing the preaching from afar outside through speakers and their music team and church band playing, he felt pulled to the place by an invisible force and he knew that was the Church God had spoken to him about, that it was his church. Since, then he never missed a Sunday or Mid-week service or Conference of FIG. He has always highly participated in all the FIG church activities with great passion. However, later after CLC changed to FIG Ministries, he was made the first youth leader of FIG Ministries International Mabvuku Assembly.

He also was later in years officially ordained as a FIG Pastor just few months after his wedding in 2001 by the Archbishop Gurupira after which he was then sent to pastor and pioneer FIG in Mufakose and Budiriro. There the Lord was growing him underground and using him in the prophetic, prophesying in FIG Mufakose members and some to close Pastors in FIG Ministries as well. He was an apostle covered in a prophetic garment. The Mufakose church assembly grew to 150 member in less than 8 months from Zero members through the evident manifestation prophetic evangelism gift many didn’t know was in him since Mabvuku High SU group and FIG Mabvuku where this gift started operating underground at low levels but Archbishop Gurupira had already noticed it as his spiritual father and was waiting patiently and praying for it to grow to fruition since 1995.Prophet Chiza also encountered a number of solid confirmations from the Lord about his prophetic ministry from and through many different Man of God.

One was dream where he saw deep, dark, endless pit in which he heard people crying which, he covered the opening of the pit with a mattress while he told people not to go near it because they would fall into it and never return. He later understood that was Hell. He also had a vision that he was in heaven and an angel came to him with too many crowns that were larger than his head and were put on his head so that he puts them on but since they were big for his head, one by one they all slided down his legs around, until he was completely covered by a number of them. He then heard a voice which told him that he was an apostle and prophet of many nations and was to work hard and minister to many people for his many crowns were awaiting him in heaven. He was later officially ordained by Archbishop Gurupira at an ESC Leaders November Conference as a prophet in 2011. However the transition or change of title from pastor to prophet was received by people with mixed feelings, while some were not affected because he was already prophesying into their lives even before he was ordained as Prophet, others who had no knowledge of his underground prophetic gift were skeptical and criticised him.

Prophet Blessing Chiza strongly believes that tribe, language or culture is not of importance in the house of God for all are children of God. He had to fight against the language barriers and difference in culture when the Lord assigned him to go to Bulawayo and start a church. This instruction came at a time when he was promoted as an assistant accountant at Time Bank, which offered him a mansion in Chisipite near Glen Lorne, Borrowdale, Harare, a good salary and a car. As a result he received this calling with great difficulty for it meant, he had to give up his job along with a comfortable life to go and start a new life in Bulawayo and preaching to people who spoke a language he had absolutely no knowledge of. At first he resisted to for he was at one time visited at night in his room by a demon of Bulawayo which was in form of a short man in a dark suit and it told him not to go to Bulawayo, for it would fight him and he will die. For some time he resisted going to Bulawayo until one day when he got involved in an accident involving two trucks that almost collided with his company car, which he narrowly escaped as he sped into a bush where his car was somehow suspended on top of a tree. That was when he heard a voice from God saying he must go to Bulawayo and it was after he agreed that the car miraculously landed on the ground and he was not hurt and got out without a single scratch.

On the day that they were moving to Bulawayo they encountered a lot of challenges which threatened to be very discouraging in their journey. At first they forgot his envelope which had all his educational certificates in a taxi and when he went back to look for the taxi using the receipt he had been given, he discovered that no such taxi existed. So up to now Prophet Chiza has no single educational certificate. Also on their way to Bulawayo their property was damaged to such an extent that they were forced to start afresh for most of it was now broken. Later, while he was praying the Lord revealed to him that the loss of his certificates was his doing because he wanted him to focus completely on his ministry. This was a struggle for him and Prophetess because they felt like useless though they are both educated people, they had to start afresh and at least have to scratch barely in life to find a source of income while pioneering the church.

Prophet Blessing Chiza then worked in Gwanda for a company called Zambuko Trust in Gwanda while they had only one member in their church for a year. The Lord’s will however was that they both resign and focus full time in the ministry, prophesying and preaching the word and developing the church they had moved to Bulawayo to build. The prophetess was also working as a book keeper at Anand Brothers. They eventually resigned and started preaching to people in the streets of Bulawayo town. They were still in Nkulumane and they later moved to Cowdray Park. They had a very difficult experience as they were no longer working and had no means to buy food and pay rentals. They later moved to old Luveve where they started FIG Luveve. After seven years, through the struggles to put food on their table, they also suffered the painful experience of not having children even though the Lord assured him that he would have children.

They were then blessed with their first child who was named Joshaviah Jorai Chiza.
