A pastor in Nigeria was carried into the sanctuary of his church while in a state of disorientation after fasting for 21 days to pray against death.
Victor Great, the lead pastor of Zion Ark of Covenant Int’l Bible Church in Delta State, was unable to walk after completing 21 days of fasting and prayer.
The clergyman was seen in a video posted on the church’s Facebook page, wearing white garments and being carried from his car to the church altar by dedicated protocol officers.
Gently laid on the ground, he was surrounded by congregants. He then proceeded to deliver prophetic utterances while his followers attentively absorbed his messages.
On Wednesday, August 30, the pastor announced in a video shared on the church’s Facebook page that he would embark on a 21-day fast and prayer session to “shut the doors of death.”
He said, “You won’t find me anywhere I’m going. I will go into hiding and cry out to God for my people. The gate is already open where I’m going. Do you think it’s my will? It’s a mission. I came here to defy the gate of death and declare that there are people who I won’t allow to be placed under my protection.”
In the video, he vowed to stand as a representative of his congregation in front of the gate of death, preventing any member from leaving.
