A man posing as the biblical Jesus had caused a serious stir on social media this week after viral photos and videos of him appeared on social media.
However, the true identity of the man who bears a striking resemblance to the image of Jesus Christ has been revealed.
The ‘Jesus’ has been identified as Michael Job, an American actor, evangelist, and president at Jesus Loves You Evangelistic Ministries.
In the viral videos shared of various social media platforms, Job was seen walking and dancing on the dusty streets of in Kiserian, Kajiado County at the weekend and his photos immediately started trending on Twitter, with Kenyans saying they have spotted ‘Jesus Christ’.
He was invited to Kenya along with other pastors to preach for one Kiserian Mega Interdenominational in a crusade that took place from July 26 to 28.
Job was said to have visited schools and given food to widows while preaching on the street during the three-day crusade.
“Tonight’s last night of the Kiserian crusade was awesome! God’s Spirit came upon all of us. People surrendered their lives to Jesus, many people were healed, and God’s Spirit came upon us powerfully in worship. Over 300 souls were saved in Kiserian. Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus, for your amazing grace!” Job wrote on Sunday.
The evangelist had revealed that he was visiting Nairobi, Kenya, Krakow and Warsaw Poland in summer of 2019.
Job has worked with Evangelist Daniel Kolenda and Reinhard Bonnke (with Christ For All Nations, the ministry of Daniel Kolenda) in the past.
In addition, Job is also an evangelist at TBN’s Holyland Experience in Orlando Florida where he portrays the role of Jesus.
Job’s started trending because he was accused of falsely claiming to be Jesus, but it was later determined that his dress style is nothing new.
He has preached over the years dressed like ‘Jesus’, as portrayed in movies.
