South African and Zimbabwean news sites are talking about a video of a Zimbabwean pastor who has claimed that he has a phone number to God. He claims it was given to him by the Almighty Himself while praying when he heard a voice to ‘call direct’.
He said: “I have a direct channel, actually I have His number and I can call Him when need arises.”
“It is possible to talk to God, why would you doubt that I got a call from him? I actually have a direct line which I can call him and get instructions on how to proceed. I got this when I was praying and I heard a voice telling me to call direct. I got instructions on the phone on what to do or say and that is what happened on Sunday. If the heavens spoke to Abraham why not us? You are of faith and people will always have doubts while others are being delivered,” the pastor added.
Paul Sanyangore, the 32-year-old controversial pastor, claims that he often receives calls from Him on how to best help his congregates. Sanyangore, who also goes by the name “Pastor Talent”, first made the outrageous claim after a video of him allegedly talking on the phone with God during a service at his church, Victory World International Ministries went viral on social media.
In the clip, Pastor Sanyangore, who wears a three-piece grey suit and speaks through a microphone, using a mobile phone to answer questions from ‘Papa God’. The bizarre video was filmed at Victory World International church in Bulawayo, central Zimbabwe. He can be seen calling a woman from the crowd, she then kneels down, at which point he begins to receive instruction from ‘heaven’.
And if that wasn’t weird enough, Sanyangore then went on to say that he would be launching a new show on his church’s television channel, Victory TV, called “Heaven Online”, where more of his phone conversations with God could be heard. He even said that he planned to reveal God’s phone number during a special service at the Victory World International Ministries, and invited people to attend so they could witness the miracle.
This is not the first time the pastor has made outrageous claims. In an interview with Zimbabwean newspaper, he said he was resurrected after dying shortly after his birth. He has also claimed to have walked on water.
