Several eyebrows have been raised on social media after South Africa’s Pastor Alph Lukau of Hallelujah Ministries International ‘raised a man from the dead’ during a church service on Sunday.
During the church service, the stylish minister known for his lavish lifestyle, encouraged believers to keep praying for their miracles.
According to reports, a woman then brought the pastor’s attention to a family that had brought a dead man to church. It was reported that he had been dead for 3 days.
The pastor went outside and ordered the workers to take the coffin out of the vehicle.
He asked the workers to open the coffin before speaking to the deceased’s elder brother.
The coffin was opened and the ‘dead man’ who donned a milk white suit was seen.
“Rise up!” he shouted, before the ‘dead’ man got up and sat in the coffin, looking confused.
According to the deceased’s landlord, the man had gotten sick and started “coughing a lot” on Friday.
The family then took the body to the Kings and Queens Real Funerals mortuary, where it was kept until Sunday.
But social media users are not buying the act.
A one Micheal Ayandokun called it a planned miracle.
“It’s a Planned miracle…in order to get more crowd …and some gullibles will believe.”
Social media users have advanced a number of reasons as to why they believe it’s a fake miracle.
Nkululeko Ndlovu questioned why there no cotton wool in his nose and ears like most people dead people while Ofentse Mahlaba wondered why his eyes and mouth were open.
A one Okorie Joy pointed out that for someone who had been dead for three days, the dead body looked fresh and glowing.
“And the body is even fresh sef, nawaoo preachers and their acted miracles,” she wrote.
Sekwela Thabi Thabi said, “ He doesn’t look like he was dead,and look like he finished bathing 2 minutes ago ”
However, a white man who was among the congregants has gone viral with his facial expression. The man seems to doubt the whole ‘risen dead body’ story.
Cobus Binneman said, “Look at the white guy on all the foto he know this guy’s a scammer haha.”
Leeroy Bernard Fredericks added, “The white guy is looking up like “Jesus come see these people?””
A one Ri?ovhona Tsaa Tsa?wani even took the time to call the funeral home and submitted his findings in a social media post:
“I just called the funeral parlor now (Sunday 24/02 @ 20h08) and Noo, this guy was not raised from the dead… This charlatan is fooling his sheep as usual. How did they cook the story?
They went to the funeral parlor and hired the hearse (Without telling the parlor they want to do this), they then went and buy the casket somewhere, then went to Sandton to get this guy to play dead. And that’s how they cooked this drama.
This guy playing dead must be taken to HAWKS for questioning and tell them how he died etc, but chances are, they have already paid him to cross SA borders.
I must say that the person I spoke to was very pissed with what this scammer did using their name… One must be really dumb to believe this.”
