Attempts to Raise Kobus Van Rensburg From The Dead Called Off

Attempts to Raise Kobus Van Rensburg From The Dead Called Off
Published: 26 December 2013
 The South African preacher Prophet Kobus Van Rensburg who died last Saturday is now set to be buried after attempts to resurrect him were called off.

Van Rensburg, 61, died last Saturday after battling cancer. He was the pastor of the Stilfontein based Spirit Word (formerly called Lofdal) church.

His family has already changed the preacher's profile photo on social networks to reflect a greyscale portrait signifying the end of the preacher's life on earth.

Perhaps Christians should just learn to look to, worship and venerate the infallible Word of God more than they do feeble mankind? Many preachers differed with him on his contentious subject of the end times in which he allegedly said there will be no rapture of the church and that the future tribulation prophecies of the blessed book of Revelations were fulfilled in AD70.

But church members full of defying conviction, have since Saturday attempted to raise him from the dead soon after news of his death broke forth. There are reports that Van Rensburg was once raised from the dead years before. Claims by one Alcide Herveaux that he was alive seen doing shopping in a nearby Spar shop on Thursday were rubbished.

" If you have just risen from the dead – would you go to Spar really?" replied one Letitia Dickerson.

The church folk on Saturday even went to the point of calling for people to head to the auditorium and raise him up. At the time of writing some were calling for his son to play a recording of one of his messages to his corpse.

Wrote another church member to Van Rensburg's son and heir apparent:

"Good morning Kobus Jnr, as I was meditating this morning. . . The Holy Spirit prompted me to tell you to play one of the teachings on "LIFE" in the room that Prophet is sleeping. Either a small radio or mp3 player not ear phones because we are playing for his spirit which is present in that room and not too loud as long as he can hear. His spirit will get hold of that message and what we've been waiting for will be done. The word is going to break the yoke. Good day."

But a certain Mr Matlotliso Masilo Moshe cautioned: "I have a fear what if prophet Kobus does not rise from d dead? Will you still love God? Ain't you going to say he is unfair?," he wrote.

"This is so mind bugling, why do the people who profess to be children of God pray for Kobus to rise,? further cautioned Pretorius Jacqueline.

"Jesus is glorified in death as well because if you a child of God you know you have eternal life, life after the carnal cease. To have faith is good, but you need to realize when you mock your own faith," she said.
