Times Live reports that the 24-year-old Rabalago, used the hazardous material to spray on his church members during a healing service, claiming he got the instruction from God to use it for the purpose of healing.

“We are glorifying God. We want God to be seen. We are saying with God anything is possible,” the Limpopo-born man of God who also calls himself the Detective‚ reportedly said after he was photographed spraying Doom on worshippers during a service and a prayer meeting for healing at the weekend.

The act which has caused an outpour of condemnation on social media platforms was justified by Prophet Rabalago and his members who believe they had gotten their healings miraculously after the insecticide was used on the.

Rabalago had allegedly told his congregants that God can use anything to heal people and as such, the instruction to use the insecticide was divine.

“It's not a matter of inspiration. When one is inspired you are copying. It's not a matter of inspiration. No one inspired me. I just believe in God for anything. We can use anything that you believe to heal people.

In the book of Genesis, the spirit of God was hovering over the water. Therefore everything here on earth belongs to God. Petrol belongs to God. Doom belongs to God.

Some people came with injuries but we sprayed them and they were healed.”
