Fake Jesus, Michael Job, dies of Pneumonia days after his visit to Kenya

Michael Job, the US preacher and actor who recently visited Kenya as 'Fake Jesus' has reportedly died just a few days after attending an interdenominational Christian event as a guest speaker. According to a report by Kenyan Live News, 'medics at Heyn Hospital have confirmed that Michael Job succumbed to pneumonia while receiving treatment'.

Much Photos and videos of him dressed as Jesus Christ have been widely shared on social media across Africa. He was last week deported from Kenya while authorities also arrested pastors that invited him. The man who was widely and erroneously referred to as Jesus who worshiped in Kenyan church has been revealed as Michael Job. Job is said to be a visiting actor, evangelist, and president of Jesus Loves You Evangelistic Ministries. Michael has worked with Evangelist Daniel Kolenda and Reinhard Bonnke (with Christ For All Nations, the ministry of Daniel Kolenda) in the past. The evangelist also  revealed that he would visit Nairobi, Kenya, Krakow and Warsaw Poland in summer of 2019 (which he sure visited Kenya). In addition, Michael Job is also an evangelist at TBN’s Holyland Experience in Orlando Florida where he portrays the role of Jesus.

According to BBC Pidgin, Job 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 2019. The evangelist is a Ukrainian who grew long hair and carries a Bible. During the three-day crusade he was reported to have visited schools and gave food parcels to widows, while also preaching on the streets.

In recent news, it was gathered that angry Kenyans and South Africans  lashed out at him (a man impersonating Jesus who with long blonde hair and wearing a robe was seen on the streets of Kitengela, south of the Kenyan capital Nairobi, dancing to praise and worship songs).  One South African even suggested that the man and the Kenyan pastor who enabled the event both be arrested, according to media reports.This bizarre incident started as recordedwhen a Kenyan pastor announced that he had invited “Jesus” to his home church after noticing the man walking in the streets of the Kenyan town last weekend.

The man who took up the invitation  joined the Kenyan congregation and subsequently began dancing and celebrating “Christ’s” arrival. And after Sunday’s service ended “Jesus” was subsequently driven along the streets in a convoy of cars waving to onlookers. While some might have found the event amusing or even believed the impersonation others were left fuming with one critic demanding the fraud be arrested.
Pneumonia is an inflammatory condition of the lung affecting primarily the small air sacs known as alveoli. Typically symptoms include some combination of productive or dry cough, chest pain, fever, and trouble breathing. Severity is variable.

Pneumonia is usually caused by infection with viruses or bacteria and less commonly by other microorganisms, certain medications and conditions such as autoimmune diseases. Risk factors include other lung diseases such as cystic fibrosis, COPD, and asthma, diabetes, heart failure, a history of smoking, a poor ability to cough such as following a stroke, or a weak immune system. Diagnosis is often based on the symptoms and physical examination.Chest X-ray, blood tests, and culture of the sputum may help confirm the diagnosis.The disease may be classified by where it was acquired with community, hospital, or health care associated pneumonia.

Pneumonia affects approximately 450 million people globally (7% of the population) and results in about 4 million deaths per year. Pneumonia was regarded by William Osler in the 19th century as "the captain of the men of death". With the introduction of antibiotics and vaccines in the 20th century, survival improved. Nevertheless, in developing countries, and among the very old, the very young, and the chronically ill, pneumonia remains a leading cause of death. Pneumonia often shortens suffering among those already close to death and has thus been called "the old man's friend".
