Every year, a new self-proclaimed man of God finds a new way to dupe the gullible. This time, it’s Polokwane pastor, Christ Penelope and he is farting on people and calling it a blessing.
Penelope who founded Seven Fold Holy Spirit Ministries farts on his congregants, saying it is a healing process that cures spiritual and physical problems.
Speaking to Drum magazine, Penelope explained that it started when Jesus stepped on Peter.
“It is the demonstration of God’s power. Just like God made Adam go into a deep sleep – it is a similar thing. God did anything with the body of Adam while he was on the ground in deep sleep. He was not feeling anything,” he explained.
Penelope said when someone is in a deep sleep, you can even drive a car over them and stand on them.
“It is God,” he said.
“When they wake up from the deep sleep, they will tell you that they didn’t feel anything. It is showing the power of God and those who needed healing are healed afterwards and others get to manifest at that moment. It doesn’t even bring hurt to me when people speak lies about you. Remember when people try to tarnish your image, that is when He shows his glory. As long as souls are won into the kingdom. He who sits on the throne laughs at his enemies,” Penelope said.
Last month, another Polokwane pastor found himself in the dock after he led his church to believe that he was sent by God to Earth to save them.
Pastor James Devine Thubakgale has since been sentenced for rape and common assault.
The National Prosecuting Authority reported that Thubakgale pastored a church in Seshego and ordered congregants to call him Judge because he was going to judge, alongside God, at the end of the world.
NPA spokesperson, Mashudu Malabi Dzhangi, said Thubakgale presented himself to his congregants as a powerful man of God, who was able to heal the sick and cast away the devil.
“He instructed congregants to bring all their money and even their retirement savings to church.
The congregants respected and obeyed his orders as they believed that he was part of the holy trinity and was closest to God. Whatever he wanted they would do for him. He would target young girls who were under 16 years of age and promised them marriage. He told them it was God himself who wanted them to marry him. He raped the girls in his motor vehicles, at a lodge and also in their rooms which he, the pastor, was responsible for rental,” Dzhangi said.
He said the victims obeyed the pastor’s rules and when they defied him he would scold them and call them witches that were possessed by evil spirits.
Dzhangi said Thubakgale was already in jail after the Mankweng Regional Court sentenced him to two life imprisonment terms for rape of two minor girls for the incidents of 2011 and 2012.
“He was sentenced on 30 September 2020 for these offences. Last month, he was sentenced to life for rape, assault common and calling another person a witch,” Dzhangi said.
