Zambian Pastor Dies After Asking To Be Buried Alive For 3 Days To Emulate Jesus’ Resurrection

LAGOS AUGUST 24TH (NEWSRANGERS)-A Zambian self-proclaimed prophet died after his attempt to recreate Jesus’ resurrection backfired spectacularly. 22-year-old Pastor James Sakara died after he asked his followers to bury him alive for three days so that he could miraculously resurrect.

Sakara who was a pastor at the Zion Church in the Zambian town of Chidiza somehow convinced his congregation that he could come back from the dead and resurrect on the third day. The charismatic pastor is reported to have also dabbled in traditional medicine. In preparing his congregant for the resurrection miracle, Prophet Sakara quoted Luke 22:19.

And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

The Zambian prophet is reported to have focused on the last part of the scripture. According to his interpretation, Jesus wanted his followers to remember him, not only by partaking of the holy sacrament but through Ressurection miracles as well.

While most of Sakara’s congregants baulked at helping him to perform his outrageous resurrection miracle, three men stepped up to help their pastor.

They are reported to have dug a shallow grave, tied up the Prophet’s hands and buried him alive. The three men and other congregants returned to the grave after three days to check on their pastor and welcome him back. Unfortunately, things had not gone according to plan, and the “man of God” was found dead.

Members of the church are reported to have performed a series of “spiritual exercises” to resurrect their prophet. Unfortunately, it was to no avail. Prophet James Sakara was unable to emulate Jesus and rise from the dead after 3 days.

After realising that their prophet was dead, two of the three men who had assisted him went on the run. They are currently wanted by the police. The third man handed himself over to the authorities.

Sakara is survived by a young pregnant wife.
