Talent Madungwe is a Zimbabwean religious leader who founded Exile Desire of All Nations Ministries. He has claimed to have visited heaven and had meetings with God.
Talent Madungwe was born in Shurugwi where he grew up in a family of 10 where he is the firstborn. Madungwe attended Kanwa Primary School. Madungwe indicated that he grew up attending the African Apostolic Church where started preaching when he was young.
He founded Exile Desire of All Nations Ministries in Sunningdale, Harare in 2013.. Prior to him starting his own church, Madungure indicated that God had appeared to him in 2012 after he had stopped going to church for 2 years.
“God first visited me in a dream and then a vision. Since then I have regularly had angelic visitations. “These visits led to my finding of my ministry and calling as I was anointed as a prophet during the first visits. “I also got the church’s name from these visits.”
Ever since opening his own church Madungwe has indicated that he has visited heaven on numerous accounts and had met God. He also indicated that his spiritual father is Daniel from the old testament biblical book. Madungwe was reported to have said he is to finish off where Daniel left and that he is the chosen one. Madungwe indicated that people do not understand him nor believe what he does.
Visiting Heaven Claims
In an interview with a local paper, Madungwe said that he had visited heaven for the first time in 2006. He said,
As l was in my prayer room just after midnight on 1 January 2016, an angel came and told me that we were about to embark on a journey to Heaven. Naturally, l was nervous but the angel gave me courage and l obliged. At that moment my body was changed from the physical form into the heavenly body that is able to disappear and reappear. The angel and l immediately appeared in Heaven. Heaven is very far. l could tell when we got there that we had traveled at an incredible speed. There are three heavens with angels manning the gates,” he says as he stares off into space. The first Heaven has vast storerooms of snow and hailstorms, things that God send to us when we sin. The second Heaven is a beautiful city, the new Jerusalem where beautiful houses are being prepared for the righteous as promised by Jesus. About twenty types of minerals are being used to build this beautiful city but gold is the dominant one, the roads are pure gold. The city is almost complete. In the third Heaven, there is much activity. I saw the apostles and prophets from the Bible relaxing in paradise. God was in this third Heaven seated on his throne and was surrounded by innumerable thrones of ‘heavenly delegates’ with the 24 elders and angels Michael, Gabriel and the seraphims closer to Him, continuously worshipping Him.
He then went on to explain his role in what he called the 'exile'. Madungwe said,
We have sinned and God shall reject the world. I was commissioned to be a prophet of all nations and lead the world when we enter into that season of exile, which is very near now. I will announce to the world when we get to that time. Soon after the short exile, we will have the second coming.
