These modern day prophets are doing the most in order to remain relevant in the church industry. Christ Penelope, a leader of The Seven Fold Holy Spirit Ministries is doing all to remain unique. It is supposed that the self proclaimed prophet farts in congregants’ faces with the aim of anointing them. Several media houses reach out to the pastor to which he denies all allegations.
Responding to DRUM, Penelope suggests his farting is a way of exercising his power from God.
“He was reportedly passing the Holy Spirit on them. He even claims that his ‘wind’ is ‘anointed and instantly performs miracles,” reporters say.
Accused of stepping on his congregants or sitting on their heads while preaching, the pastor defends his actions.
“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,” Christ Penelope says.
“When someone is in a deep sleep you can do anything with the body “you can even drive a car over it or stand on them. It is God. The Bible doesn’t say anything about Adam saying, ‘God, you are hurting me.’ 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,” he adds.
The Limpopo preacher is by no means unmoved by people’s different notions regarding the way he conducts his sermons.
”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 says. “He who sits on the throne laughs at his enemies.”
Penelope once makes headlines in 2016 for making his congregants perform an anointing ritual using condom oil. He the proceeds to make them eat a rare snake called a tetrapodophis. Despite all the weird red flags, masses still flock to his church.
