A Zion Christian Church ‘prophet’, who claimed to be filled with the Holy Spirit, decided to challenge lions at the Kruger National Park, South Africa, to a battle.

Alec Ndiwane, a resident of Pretoria, was at the park with fellow church members, when he went into a trance and began speaking in multiple tongues, according to GhanaWeb.

The prophet and his colleagues were watching the animals when this happened. The lions were busy munching on their prey, when Ndiwane thought himself possessed opened the safari car door and ran towards the pride. It’s no surprise that the lions felt threatened and took up the prophet on the challenge. Soon Ndiwane realised what was happening, and quickly turned around to run away. Unfortunately, the lions were faster and one of them reached close enough to snap her paws on him. Ndiwane sustained injuries to his buttocks.

The accompanying ranger is said to have fired his gun to scare the lions off and rush Ndiwane to the hospital where he underwent emergency surgery, said the report.

“I do not know what came over me,” Ndiwane confessed. “I thought the Lord wanted to use me to show his power over animals. Is it not we were given dominion over all creatures of the earth.”
