A 35-year-old pastor in Gabon, Franck Kabele, has died while trying to take after Jesus in the Bible. Reports claim. Kabele told his congregation that he was capable of reenacting the same miracles of Jesus Christ in the Bible. He decided to make it clear through way of demonstration on Gabon’s beach in the capital city of Libreville.

Using Matthew 14:22-33 as reference, Kabele said that he received a revelation which told him that with enough faith he could achieve what Jesus did also. Eyewitnesses say that Kabele took his congregation out to the beach. He told them that he would cross the Kombo estuary by foot, which is normally a 20-minute boat ride. Sadly by the second step into the water, Kabele found himself completely submerged. He never returned.
