WATCH: Pastor Alph Lukau ‘raising’ a dead man from a coffin

JOHANNESBURG – Pastor Alph Lukau of Alleluia Ministries International claims to have brought a man (who seemed to be breathing a lot for a dead guy) back from the dead.

According to Pastor Lukau the man died for three days and yesterday at AMI under Lukau he rose from the dead.

It all started during Lukau’ church service on Sunday when a woman shouted: “Pastor Alph, something is happening outside. There is a family that is about to bring a corpse to Zimbabwe, but they are saying something is happening, man of God.

“As the funeral parlour drove over the church door, their neighbour said it seemed like the fingers of this dead corpse were beginning to move,” she added.

The pastor went outside, then asked the workers to take the coffin out of the hearse

He asked the workers to open the coffin. He spoke to the deceased’s older brother before the coffin was completely taken out of the hearse.

According to the deceased’s landlord, the man had gotten sick and started “coughing a lot” on Friday.

“We took him to the hospital and they said they could not help him because he did not have papers, so we took him to the doctor and he died there,” she claimed.

The family then took the body to the mortuary, where it was kept until Sunday.

Pastor Alph then asked the congregants to lift their hands and start praying.

“Rise up!” he shouted, before the man got up and sat in the coffin, looking confused, like a modern-day Lazarus.

“The coffin is empty,” he said as the congregants jumped and screamed for joy.

Lukau’s church boasts hundreds of thousands of members across many branches in several countries. He and his wife are known for their conspicuous consumption, including sharing photos of him disembarking from a private jet and various luxury vehicles.
