A Christian pastor in Kenya who camped at a mortuary for four days in the belief that his wife would rise from the dead like Lazarus has been left disappointed after the miracle failed to occur.
Pastor Githumba, aged 40, began trending on social media after he camped out at the mortuary in Gakwegori in Embu district, fasting and praying for her resurrection.
He invited reporters and others to witness the miracle, Standard Digital reports. He attested that she was merely resting and would be restored to life if everyone prayed and believed in God for the miracle.
The pastor, from Eagle Prophetic Church, and his followers held Bibles and prayed, sang and shouted for the miracle, according to the Standard, and repeatedly invoked God’s name.
The Star reported that he believed she would resurrect on the fourth day, like the biblical Lazarus.
Githumba, from Rwika Village in Mbeere South sub-county, told the Star that he loved his wife deeply and believed she would rise. ‘That is why we are praying for her resurrection. We know God is the most powerful being.
‘I know she will be visited after three days the way Jesus visited Lazarus and woke him up from the dead. I know this will also happen to my wife.’
The couple have four children.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
