A controversial South African pastor, Penuel Mnguni, of the End Time Disciples Ministry, who is always known for asking his congregants to do strange things such as swallowing live snakes, had on Sunday been allegedly delivered by Prophet T.B Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nation, in Lagos.
According to Mnguni, he had to come to Prophet T.B Joshua to deliver him because he thought what he was doing wasn’t right.
Recently, pictures showing Pastor Mnguni, popularly known as the “Snake Pastor,” feeding his members with snake in South Africa as a purported demonstration of God’s power went viral across the globe, making headlines in newspapers and online platforms.
Pastor Mnguni had also fed his congregants with live rats; locking another in a deep freezer for over thirty minutes and causing yet more to strip off their clothes during his wild church services.
Pastor Mnguni was arrested for his activities and faced backlash from both human and animal rights groups but despite the global outrage, he vowed to continue unperturbed.
The pastor told T. B Joshua’s congregation that he had read certain scriptures such as Mark 16:17-18 which led him to believe he could feed his congregants with strange items to prove the power of God.
However, he admitted that when he began to listen to Prophet T.B. Joshua’s teachings, he realised his activities were “not scriptural.”
He, therefore requested for prayers from Prophet T.B. Joshua for deliverance from the spirit that pushed him to engage in such bizarre, inhumane actions.
