A local prophet might raise more questions than answers after selling ball point pens to congregants during his church service on Sunday claiming that they are anointed.

Prophet Sham of House of Praise International Church distributed hundreds of pens to people who are about to sit for examinations.

The pens which cost R1 were being sold for different amounts ranging between R10 and R200, depending on what you can afford. Prophet Sham said those who are sitting for their exams only needed faith and the anointed pens to pass.

“It is anointed and I declare passes when your children sit for exams,” he said.

With Secondary and High School examinations around the corner, the pens sold like hot cakes and congregants were seen scrambling to the pulpit to get them. They (pens) are said to work for anyone who is sitting for any test or exam, regardless of the level of exams one is sitting for.

“My son is not very bright and I think this will help him. With the knowledge he has acquired and his pen from the man of God,I think it is going to work,” one female congregant said.

A number of congregants parted ways with more than R100 for a pen as they were told the more they give, the more their faith and the more the children will pass.

One of the congregants testified that he scored 14 points at A level after using the pen he was given by Prophet Sham.

Prophet Sham went on to perform a number of miracles before thousands of worshippers who attended the service. A number of people gave testimonies of deliverance after getting prayers and anointing water from the man of God.
