- Controversial pastor, Alph Lukau, has defended his 'resurrection' miracle
- The Alleluia Ministries International church leader accused the world of growing 'cold' towards the word of God
- And, Lukau added, people without faith wouldn't understand what he did
After several days of silence, Pastor Alph Lukau has finally spoken up about the alleged miracle that stunned South Africans.
During his recent sermons, Lukau explained the negative response his 'resurrection' miracle gathered was due to people growing 'cold' to God's word, The Citizen reported.
He then added that those without faith wouldn't understand what he had done. Eyewitness News reported Lukau also told his congregation that miracles are no longer appreciated.
“When we speak about miracles, we are talking about something that has gone beyond the rationalisations of what we accept as norms," he was quoted.
Explaining to his congregation what happened, Lukau said he saw the man was breathing when they opened the coffin.
Briefly.co.za gathered he then added that he did not resurrect the man, he merely prayed for him to regain his strength.
“His body was very stiff and he was in a catatonic state, he was looking left and right. I asked his name, they gave me a long name and Elliot, I called out his name and he looked at me and I prayed for him and God gave him the grace that he may be strong, and he stood and we pulled him out of the coffin," Lukau said.
Lukau gave an explanation of the events, which has since gone viral, during a sermon on Sunday. The controversial pastor also proved that he won't let the 'haters' get him down as he held another 'miracle' service.
Photos were shared on social media which showed ambulances bringing sick people to Lukau for prayer.
