Miracles like walking on water and changing water to wine might seem quite appealing to those who have heard about some of the popular acts that Jesus did. But listen to me fellows—if you must try this at home—play it safe. A pastor was eaten in a crocodile attack while he was trying to walk on water in front of his congregation. A man of God was killed after he was eaten by three crocodiles while trying to reenact the supernatural act to his devoted congregation.
Jonathan Mthethwa was trying to show his congregation how Jesus did the miracle by crossing on foot, what is locally known in Zimbabwe as Crocodile River.
He never made it across the reptile infested river.
The pastor, from the Satin of the Last Days church, managed to get around 90ft into the river before trying to climb onto the surface of the river.
One of the shocked Eyewitness, Deacon Nkosi told the Daily Post: ‘The pastor taught us about faith on Sunday last week.
‘He promised he would demonstrate his faith to us today, but he unfortunately ended up drowning and getting eaten by three large crocodiles in front of us.
‘We still don’t understand how this happened because he fasted and prayed the whole week. They finished him in a couple of minutes.
‘All that was left of him when they finished eating him is a pair of sandals and his underwear floating above the water.’
Although Pastor Mthethwa was aware of the nature of the river he had believed his faith would see him through. It was quite traumatic for his congregation who witnessed first hand, the crocodiles attacking him.
