Prophet Charges Lion To Prove God’s Power, Nearly Killed, Saved By Game Rangers

A Zion Christian Church prophet who was filled with the Holy Spirit recently ‘challenged’ a lion to do battle in the Kruger National Park.

Prophet Alec Ndiwane who is based in the Pretoria Soshanguve was with fellow church members in the Kruger National Park where they were watching animals.It is believed the prophet went into a trance and started to speak in tongues. Ahead of them was a lion pride busy eating their impala.

Alec must have thought he was the biblical Samson as the prophet opened the car door and went charging towards the lions. Upon seeing the man running towards them, the lions could not believed that manna was coming straight from heaven and instead ran towards the prophet.

Alec must have then come to his senses as he quickly realised this was not going to end well and made an immediate turn and ran back to safety. But before he could safely reach the confines of the car, one lion had snapped its paws on him thus causing major damage to his toilet sitting tool. Also thanks to the game ranger who was near who fired some shots with his gun to scare the lion away.

So severe was the lion paw injury that Alec had to be rushed to hospital for emergency surgery. The man was fearing he would lose his bum but the doctor’s assured him he would still have his left bum intact.

“I do not know what came over me’, Alec 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’, Alec added.

Alec was eventually stitched up and discharged after spending the night in hospital.

    Dumb fuck. Another example of the damage caused by religion.

      Agreed! Religion is a mental disorder… No other way to describe it.

        14 But [f]a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually [g]appraised. 15

        • Andrew Malenda

          Yes. Anyone that doesn’t join our club is a fool. How convenient.

          • insightful

            No, I said those who the Father hasn’t chosen or those who haven’t chosen His son Jesus Christ are by definition not born again to Christ and therefore still in a natural state and can’t understand the things of God. That doesn’t mean they are not very intelligent, smart, and still possess certain natural gifts that God has given them to get by in this world till death, then suffer eternity without God.

          • Andrew Malenda

            “Those who the father hasn’t chosen”? So this “father”‘person has already decided to exclude people through no fault of their own and has also decided to punish them for all eternity, but also wants to let them live out the rest of their lives… Just because?? That’s incredibly messed up and infinitely immoral. Why would you ever follow such an insane monster??

            @insightful: Well, so far at least 95% of the “religious” people I’ve met would not be chosen by God, if He existed.
            Why would billions follow religious books written by man?
            No one can even prove that God exists or that Jesus was His son. Unil that time it is hogwash.

    I now challenge our very own who have all the power over wealth to dare the lions at the Nairobi national park to prove their prophetic powers.

  • Muchene Nrb

    The dumb thing is the headline “Prophet charges Lions..” instead of “DumbAss Charges Lions ….”. A lot of Crazy Disillusioned Ignorant people go in self induced crazy trances citing religion But that does not make it real. Lions don’t give a Fcuk when they see a meal in a Trance DumbAss…

    • Robson Nkadimeng

      On point. Kwaaaaa, trance or not they’re gonna have that rare human ass. It’s like us having springbok – rare tasty ahit.

    “FALSE” Prophet Charges Lion To “Prove God’s Power,” Nearly Killed…

    First of all, there are NO more prophets today like there were in the times of the Bible because we now have God’s Word, the Bible. Also, the Bible shows us how to tell if someone is a FALSE PROPHET: “ But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
    21 And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the Lord hath not spoken?
    22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the Lord, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.” Deuteronomy 18:20-22.

    Second, it is a grave misconception and misinterpretation of Scripture by the Charismatic movement to temp God by doing dangerous things “on purpose” to supposedly “prove God’s power!” It is more likely that this man, Alec, was actually being tempted by the the Devil. Jesus shows us an example to NOT tempt God to “prove His power” by intentionally doing dangerous things!

    The Bible says in Matthew 4:5-7, “Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
    6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
    7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.”

    So, this misinformed man Alec, acting on these misconceptions and misinterpretations, was actually “tempting God”, NOT “proving His power!”

    Acting on these ill-informed, false concepts, he charges a group of lions while they are having their lunch? They probably thought he was attacking them, or they were protecting their lunch. Either way, BAD IDEA!!! This is an extreme example of how misinterpretations of the Bible that forms false beliefs result in grave consequences.

    What Alec did is NOT at all Christianity or what the Bible teaches. It is false beliefs like what Alec acted upon that cause people to lump craziness like this in with true Bible-believing Christianity, and therefore causing them to reject the true Good News of salvation by grace though faith in Jesus Christ for the salvation of their souls. We see this in the responses to this story… FYI.

    • Joe Silvia

      All prophets are false because there is no such thing as magic. Quoting the bible doesn’t make it true.

      You are no different than this man who ran at the lions. You are equally as delusional.

      • Robson Nkadimeng

        True. Quoting the so called word of god put together by men.

      • DavidWS

        I never mentioned magic. However, many non-believers do believe in the magic that the universe created itself from nothing.

        • Justin

          Who says it came from nothing? Science has made no such conclusion. There is some evidence of a multiverse and that’s not nothing. The big bang is just a rapid expansion of space. The matter was all there by that point.

          • DavidWS

            In their book, The Grand Design, Stephen Hawking and coauthor Leonard Mlodinow lay out the case for a universe that began without any divine spark—one step beyond even those who accept the big bang but see it as God’s handiwork. To the authors, the big bang was the unavoidable result of the laws of physics at work. “Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing,” they write.

            The Times report (subscription required) includes a quotation from atheist biologist Richard Dawkins, who admitted tellingly that he had “always assumed the same thing” even before Hawking’s book was released.

            Outspoken “anti-theist” Lawrence Krauss appeared on CNN’s Faces of Faith program to explain how the universe created itself from nothing. Krauss, in London at the time, was interviewed about his book, A Universe from Nothing: Why There Is Something Rather than Nothing.

          • Justin

            I doubt any of them tried to “explain how the universe created itself from nothing” as there is neither a scientific claim nor explanation for such a thing. Regardless, there certainly are no gods.

            I’m just curious of your beliefs are something you arrived at as an adult, or if they’re something you were taught from birth?

    • American Idiot

      This article reads like someone in 8th grade wrote it. I don’t understand why two people down voted you? I thought you did a good job explaining why charging lions isn’t Christianity. Most people on the internet are ignorant when it comes to the Bible. Keep up the good work!


      THERE ARE REAL PROPHETS “NOW” this fool isn’t one. Yes there are many false ones BUT they STILL EXIST….

    • thewholetruthandnuttenbut

      Wrong. Nowhere in the bible does it say prophecy will cease. The books are not even listed in the order they were written. Show me the exact scripture that says prophecy ceased. The bible says the opposite actually. Most Christians uphold the fact that we are leaving in the “last days” and according to Acts 2:17 in the last days I will pour out my spirit on all men. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.

      What I do agree it is that far too many people take this prophecy thing too far and the word of God trumps the opinions spoken by these supposed prophets.

      • DavidWS

        “Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
        9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
        10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.” 1 Corinthians 13:8-10

        • thewholetruthandnuttenbut

          Ok??? How does “the shall fail” equate to, prophecy and other manifestations of the gifts are no longer valid for modern day Christians? You are not reading the scripture in context. Has knowledge also ceased or vanished away??

          The scripture you quoted does not explicitly or implicitly state WHEN they will cease/fail/vanish and it does not refute, disprove or negate the fact that the scripture states EXPLICITLY that in the last days young men and women will prophesy. I understand your particular denomination hinges on this but there is no concrete biblical evidence to affirm your supposition but there is an explicit scripture that supports my perspective. I’ve also prophesied things that have come to pass as well as had prophecies concerning my life which have come to pass. Anyway, we will agree to disagree. Take care sir!

          • DavidWS

            “…But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.” 1 Corinthians 13:8-10. That which is perfect is come… the 66 books of the Bible, God’s Word. The signs and prophecies, speaking in other languages, were necessary for people to know that the disciples were with Jesus and that God was continuing to use them to spread the Gospel to the known world during this transitional period. However, now that we have God’s perfect Word, these signs, miracles, prophecies and speaking other languages are no longer necessary to do this. “…then that which is in part shall be done away.”

          • thewholetruthandnuttenbut

            Nope. Christians agree we are in the last day and the scripture STILL alludes to prophesy in the last days based on the scripture I quoted before. How do you interpret a scripture that in essence prophesies that there will be prophesy in the “last days” which is the time we are in now? This is explicit and there is no room for interpretation as it is very direct unlike what you are quoting which doesn’t say how you interpret it explicitly. I have seen the gifts in operation TODAY and that combined with clear, straightforward scripture confirms my conviction and scriptural interpretation. We will not agree, but I appreciate your zeal and fervor and may God continue to grant you the grace to keep spreading the Gospel.

          • RoyShastid

            Christians have claimed the “last days” for 2000 years. In the meantime the rest of us go on learning about the world.

      hey I am responding to your comment on Discuss Disqus ( i was banned there so I can’t post there).

      you can’t get unbanned from RawStory. I know first hand that Mark
      Estrada (their lead site moderator) and Roxanne Cooper (their editor in
      chief) do not reverse bans.

      I mean you can use the “contact us”
      option in hopes of getting in contact with Mark but you will be met with
      unprofessionalism and childish behavior.

      Or you could just create a new account and go back to RawStory if you want to still be apart of that community so badly………………………..

      • Bob

        Haha. You know if they are going to ban us from talking. They should ban us from reading as well but that would affect their numbers wouldn’t it, Yeah, I thought it was pretty unprofessional of Raw Story. I am not saying I did not say some things but for the most part I stayed within site guidelines. I’ve written on their site a bunch of times but not that often. In fact I hadn’t noticed the ban which took place three months ago, the last time I had commented. I wish I could convey that to those idiots. I have no idea why they did, but its bizzare. They removed a lot of my posts too. I don’t know when that happened. It almost as if they had a temper tantrum and just started deleting. The funny thing is the last thing I posted was a critique of their article calling it click bait. Some of the posts they removed I can slightly understand but others made no sense. Again, almost as if they had a temper tantrum.

    The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down from here. For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'”

    Jesus answered, “It is said: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'”

  • chrismoyler

    There’s real prophecy and there’s true prophecy. Just like Samuel, a true prophet, “the Lord ensured that none of Samuels words fell to the ground.” Thus, like the true prophets of today, Samuel was recognised as true.

    A false prophet might believe that he is speaking the truth, but events will fully test his words. The LORD never has to honour presumption.

    As for the gift of tongues, well that is so commonplace now, that it has long ceased to be even a discussion point. We use the gift all the time. Very useful for settling the mind, and connecting with heaven. I’ve had the gift for almost 40 years now. An indispensable gift in my armoury, as my brothers and sisters would heartily agree.
    Thank you dear Father! Amen. Chris

    Thou shalt not tempt or test the Lord thy God. Apparently jackass must be a scriptural dyslexic. Daniel is the closest thing – and he sure didn’t run into the lion’s den to test Gods protection..
