Alleluia Ministries has denied access to members of the public, only allowing "VIP" members to enter the premises.
On Tuesday, SowetanLIVE journalist attempted to enter the premises of Pastor Alph Lukau's church, however, they discovered tight security and an absent religious leader.
According to the report, the public is not allowed to enter the church after Lukau made headlines for allegedly resurrecting a man.
The story blew up and has since caused a lot of trouble for the controversial pastor. Briefly.co.za reported three funeral parlours opened a criminal case against Lukau and there are also reports that another religious leader has filed charges against him.
The negative reaction the 'miracle' gathered forced the church to increase security. On Wednesday, only "VIP" members attended the church but Lukau was no where in sight.
According to an unidentified woman, no one was allowed to enter the premises and the spokesperson was not there.
She added only the spokesperson was allowed to speak on behalf of the organisation.
All the negative attention the church has gathered followed a video, which has since gone viral, showing Lukau allegedly raising a man from the dead.
After a lot of backlash, the church backtracked on their miracle, adding the man was already alive when he arrived on the premises. However, they added Lukau finished a miracle God had already started.
