Nigeria: Mysterious Hand Causes Stir at Church Crusade

Calabar — THE sudden appearance of a mysterious hand during a crusade organized at the headquarters of the Glorious Assemblies Ministries popularly known as Christ Endtime Military Academy, Calabar, Cross River State is now a subject of discussion among residents of the city.

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.

Larry explained that "the mysterious appearance of the hand came up on the fourth day of the programme.

" I was busy praying for people after coming out from seclusion. I was told of the hand by a Camera man, but before that event, I was talking to people about the right hand. "It was revealed that 2012 was going to be an exceptional experience in His presence and I had told my people that the month of July was going to be a month of signs and wonders and it is the month this thing happened," he said.

A member of the Church, Mrs. Iwatt said that the appearance of the mysterious hand as a big surprise and shock to her, adding that "this season God has visited our people greatly and I feel God has come down during the programme as a result of praise and singing. I was sure the presence of God is there."

Another member of the Church, Princess Agnes Archibong said, "it was a surprise to me when the hand of Jesus appeared before us here even people are overwhelmed and you see the hand does not look like ordinary hand. This was a confirmation that the Lord has accepted the man of God."
