A Bungoma man identified as Mwalimu Yesu wa Thangole has cought the eyes of massive believers who claim that he is Jesus Christ and performs miracles.
Mwalimu leads a church in Bungoma and argues that God gave him the name before instructing him to preach the gospel.
“I am Jesus Christ. Many ask if I am the real Christ, and I affirm to them that I am,” he claimed.
Recently, the man told Journalists that his mission is to spread the word of God not only in Kenya but across the world.
“Jesus is not for one country, but he is for the whole world,” he said.
The controversial preacher is followed by 12 disciples, just like Jesus in the Bible. However, his disciples mimic the descendants of Jacob from Rueben to Benjamin.
One of the disciples, Naftar, alleged that he had a vision frGodGod in 2017 who told him that visitors will come from Rwanda. The ‘disciple’ added that the visitation will be a proof of the Jesus living amongst them.
Naftar, who joined the church in 2014, added that God instructed him on how to dress when the visitors arrive, how they would arrive in their vehicles, and what to feed them.
During private sessions with his disciples, Mwalimu Yesu reads from the scripture while the disciples kneel down worshipping him, wearing similar robes that cover their heads to toes.
Also, Mwalimu Yesu has two churches and his congregants go from one church to the next. The minor church is made of mud with two doors and several windows, while the main church is made of concrete.
In the first church, the congregants remove their shoes before repenting of their sins to be allowed to progress to the next.
“I fully believe this man is Jesus, he heals and delivers,” one of the congregants stated.
However, Mwalimu Yesu is married with eight children, five boys, and three girls. This has attracted cynicism from some members of the public who argue that Jesus in the Bible was not married.
Answering to the doubts and loopholes, Mwalimu Yesu used Revelations 21:9 to defend himself.
“And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, ‘Come here, I will show you the Lamb’s wife’,” read the verse.
According to Mwalimu Yesu, ‘the Lamb’s wife’ part of the verse gave him permission to marry and procreate.
“Sick people come to this church, and you may think they are so close to death but Jesus always intervenes and they are healed,” Mwalimu Yesu’s wife claimed.
