- Prophet Jacob asked his followers to bring bottles of water to church
- The self-styled man of God then prayed for the bottled water
- What happened next left the congregation amazed and baffled
One of the most popular miracles that Jesus Christ performed was turning water into wine during a wedding in Cana according to the book of John in the Bible.
Well, a similar 'miracle' was on April 3 allegedly performed by a man of God believed to be from South Africa during the Easter celebrations, except in this case, water was transformed into petrol and not wine.
Briefly.co.za gathered Prophet Jacob asked his followers to bring to church bottled water so he could produce for them fuel in return.
According to his own Facebook post, the self-proclaimed prophet started by challenging the faithfuls if they believed he could actually turn petrol into water.
"Do you believe we can turn this water into petrol?" he posed.
Prophet Jacob then prayed for the water during which the liquid allegedly changed colour, started to smell like petrol, then suddenly caught fire.
"He prayed with militancy and instantly the colour and the smell of the water changed and caught fire which was so massive and people were moved into awe," his Facebook post read.
Many however believed the man's alleged miracle was a prank aimed at hoodwinking people to join his church.
Cases of fake prophets have indeed been on the rise over the years, with some openly claiming to be the promised Messiah.
Just recently, a Bungoma man declared himself Jesus and told his followers he was sent by God to come and save the world as promised in the holy Book.
