Walking on water is not easy. Not too many people have the ability. Let’s see, there’s Jesus, and well, that’s about it. Unfortunately for one pastor in Nigeria, his attempt to become the second man to make this impossible feat a reality cost him his life, AllChristianNews reports.
The pastor told his congregation that he was capable of re-enacting the very miracles of Jesus Christ. He decided to make it clear through way of demonstration. He said he received a revelation which told him that with enough faith he could achieve what Jesus was able to.
According to an eyewitness, the man of God took his congregation out to a river, told them that he would cross the river by foot.
Sadly by the second step into the water the servant of God found himself completely submerged. He never returned. This is not the first incident of this nature in Nigeria. At Ibadon zoo in south-west Nigeria, a self-proclaimed Prophet claimed to be able to do what the Daniel of the bible did by walking into a den full of lions.
Though he was warned numerous times by zoo keepers, according to local media, the Prophet thought of them as nothing more than enemies of progress. The Prophet, with a crowd of people watching, put on a long red robe and proceeded to enter the cage full of lions.
Within seconds of opening the door, the lions ripped the Prophet from flesh to bone. The bible should come with a warning label, “Don’t try this at home”.
