High Five, Jesus! Christ Gives a Big Hand to Nigerian Church

Picture: Michelangelo (PD)

AllAfrica.com reports that a giant hand appeared before the congregation of Glorious Assembly Ministries church in Calabar, Cross River state, Nigeria. The church is also known by the not-at-all apocalyptic, hair-raising name Christ Endtime Military Academy. Whether God’s big ol’ mitt actually appeared at the church is up for debate (to say the least); the credulous tone of the article is not. I’m particularly fond of the bit about people “[insinuating] many things concerning the hand”:

The mysterious hand which appeared on the fourth day of the programme radiated with light and pierced through the ceiling of the church building before young boys who were part of the programme noticed it with amazement.

Though many people have insinuated many things concerning the hand, the General Overseer of the Church, Pastor Timmy Larry described the hand as the hand of Jesus Christ and that a day before the mysterious hand appeared, a lady saw a vision that a mighty hand came from behind and lifted and smashed a man.

Did anyone check if the hand’s palm had a hole in it?

    I’d normally be skeptical of these types of claims, but Nigerians are widely known to be a very trustworthy people.
