According to Johan Rousseau, there are some tell-tale signs to indicate whether a person is dead or alive.

TimesLIVE reported that Rousseau shared his knowledge to prevent others from being scammed.

One of the easy giveaways that the “deceased” (Brighton) was alive was that his mouth was open.

Rousseau explained that the mouth of the deceased is surgically closed to keep the jaws intact.

A vein is normally easily visible on the upper thigh or neck area as one of these veins are operated on to extract body fluid and blood.

The body of the deceased is normally grey in colour due to lack of blood flow, the temperature and moisture in the morgue.

Another factor to consider is that the upper body would be cut open to remove the insides, which makes it impossible for movement of the upper body.

Based on these factors, it is hard for even the most loyal supporters of the Alleluia Ministry to claim the resurrection to be legitimate.
