A pastor in Gabon who tried to imitate Jesus Christ by walking on water drowned in the presence of his congregation.
Pastor Franck Kabele, 35, told his congregation that he was capable of reenacting the very miracles of Jesus Christ. He decided to make it clear through way of demonstration on Gabon’s beach in the capital city of Libreville. Referencing Matthew 14:22-33, Kabele said that he received a revelation which told him that with enough faith he could achieve what Jesus was able to. According to an eyewitness, Kabele took his congregation out to the beach. He told them that he would cross the Kombo estuary by foot, which is normally a 20 minute boat ride. Sadly by the second step into the water Kabele found himself completely submerged. He never returned.
Jesus walked on water because He needed to join His disciples in the boat, not for show. This reminded me of the “Daniel” that went into the zoo in Ibadan and was eaten up by lions, the real Daniel did not try to prove anything, he was thrown there and God took control. Jesus was never on a show off, everything he did had a purpose. Uhmmmmmmmm, na wa o.
