- Ntswelengoe Radebe claims he's the real son of God
- He claims the Bible talks about him as the Messiah
- He even resigned from his job to embark on his divine journey
A 42-year-old man from Rustenburg, North West province, is convinced that he is the real Messiah sent to save the world.
Ntswelengoe Radebe claims that he's the son of God and that anyone else making that claim is not being truthful, Briefly.co.za learned.
Speaking to People's Paper, Radebe said the media must tell his story so South Africans can know who and where their saviour is.
The determined man lamented that he has tried to convince priests and people in his area that he's the chosen one, but they don't believe him. He said:
I try to make people listen to me, but they don’t understand what I’m trying to tell them. I was the first person to be created and I will be the last to die.
Radebe insisted that the Bible speaks about him when it speaks about the Messiah. He even resigned from his job as an engineer to embark on his divine journey.
However, even his 67-year-old mother, Jane, apparently does not believe his claims. She's a traditional healer and only said that everyone is entitled to their own beliefs.
Radebe's claims are not the first of their kind. Many people have claimed to be Jesus Christ in the past.
Briefly.co.za recently compiled a list of five such people, with some even drawing thousands of followers.
