Pastor Lukau admits lying on ‘resurrection’ miracle:  Faces probe over stunt

In a dramatic twist to South Africa’s ‘resurrection’ miracle, doggy Pastor Alph Lukau of Alleluia Ministries church has admitted he lied to the public, saying the alleged dead person arrived at church when he was already alive.

Source of controversy: The ‘deceased’ man in the crowd after the resurrection stunt which has led to a firm rebuttal from the funeral providers

Amid mounting pressure, Lukau sent his church leaders to admit he lied, coating with a saying that the man identified as Elliot in the video had arrived alive and kicking inside a coffin at the church gate.

This has promoted government’s religious watchdog institution, CRL Rights Commission, to accuse Lukau of misleading the public.

The Commission—which is renowned for its strictness with religious compliance—has since launched an investigation into the matter.

During Sunday service at his church in Sandton, South Africa, Congolese born Lukau claimed he had brought a dead man back to life in front of a crowd of people near Johannesburg.

Footage of the event showed the man lying still in the coffin before sitting up again when the pastor puts his hands on him.

However, things turned haywire on Monday for him when three funeral parlours—Kings & Queens, Black Phoenix and Kingdom Blue—said they had opened criminal charges against Lukau for allegedly being tricked by his church’s representatives to utilize the parlours’ assets to carry out the “plot or scheme”.

“They approached Kingdom Blue for the purposes of acquiring a coffin, used stickers of Black Phoenix to brand their private car, and used such car to misrepresent it to Kings & Queens for the purposes of acquiring transport to ferry the body to the rural areas.

“It is with regret that the outcome of such a plot/scheme has adversely affected our reputation as service providers, our valued clients and the general public,” the parlours said in a statement.

Kings & Queens wrote on their Facebook page: “As a Funeral Services Provider we do not offer services without documentation, neither do we repatriate bodies without any paperwork. We are in the process of taking legal action for this malicious damage to our image.”

Meanwhile, after viewing the video footage, which has gone viral, experts have dismissed the “miracle” as an attempt to commercialise religion.

They said a corpse needed to be embalmed and the blood squeezed out to avoid the spreading of germs during transportation out of the country, with the paperwork necessary for this taking about three or four days.

This was the view of Johan Rousseau, chairperson of the 30-year-old Funeral Industry Reformed Association (Fira), which rebuked AMI in what has been dubbed a hoax resurrection.

People can call it temptation but this is not temptation.how can people think that this is a temptation when God sure us his power by reviling to us what is happening in the darkness. People must know that god create a way in any situation. In what they did God saw a God opportunity to open your eyes by force. So this is not a temptation this is God speaking to you,telling everyone that need the kingdom of God first and practice the word of God after he will bless you with what you want.

Well, I still think it is a makeup against Pastor Alph Lukau. However, whatever is being put out there has, and will never change my mindset about the prophet and the AMI Ministries. God is using and I know your critics are jealous when God keeps working miracles through you. Please do no be deterred as we are always with you, but God loves you the best.
