Prophet Isaiah Sovi is an internationally celebrated Zambian born preacher, leader of the Imperial City Church which has branches in South Africa, Kenya and Malaysia and also one of Africa’s trendiest young millionaires.
At the age of six, Isaiah Sovi was referred to as a Bible encyclopedia because he had memorised more than 100 verses in the Bible and recited them at home or at church.
Born in the 90s and dropping out of the Cavendish University where he was pursuing a degree in law to go full-time in the ministry, the young cleric has grown up to become a businessman who networks with the leaders of the free world, Presidents and presidential hopefuls and assorted dignitaries, while helping combat poverty through his philanthropy. He also drives to help business start-ups.
His church focuses on revealing Christ, communicating the knowledge and wisdom of God, the reason it is called imperial. Showing people and making them realise that they need to live a Kingdom life.
Spiritually, Sovi is inspired by Spirit Embassy Church founder Prophet Uebert Angel, who is his mentor and spiritual father.
“Prophet Uebert is exactly what I want in ministry, successful businessman and a prophet who understands both worlds,” he said.
Misunderstood as every other modern-day-charismatic Christian prophet, some believe he is pompous, while others who follow him believe he is a vibrant young man with a message that will transform lives.
On Friday, the cleric took to Facebook to explain what he termed a “simple code” to his success.
Read the full statement below.
“My success is as a result of one simple code.
Kenya is two hours ahead of Nigeria, but it does not mean that Nigeria is slow, and it does not mean that Kenya is faster than Nigeria. Both countries are working based on their own “Time Zone.”
Someone is still single. Someone got married and ‘waited’ ten years before having a child, there is another who had had a baby within one year after marriage.
Someone graduated at the age of 22, yet waited 5 years before securing a job; and there is another who graduated at the age of 27 and secured employment just after university.
Joyce Meyer started her own ministry at age 41 and still alive today at 71 years old.
Someone became CEO at the age of 25 and died at the age of 50 while another became a CEO at the age of 50 and lived to 90 years.
Everyone worked based on their ‘Time Zone’.
Some people have everything that work(sic) fast for them. Work in your “time zone”.
Brethren, God has designed us for a particular purpose that is different from the other person. God allows things to happen at His own time. Your Time Will Come
Colleagues, friends, associates, younger one(s) might “seem” to go ahead of you. Don’t envy them, it’s their ‘Time Zone.’. Yours is coming soon. Hold on, be strong, and stay true to yourself. All things shall work together for your good. You’re not late… you’re on time!
YOUR GOD-GIVEN TIME!”
