|Meet The Men Of God Who Wanted To Be Like Jesus, They Fasted 40 Days And Night by Newsleisure: 8:28pm On Oct 01, 2021|
Meet the men of God who wanted to be like Jesus, they fasted 40 days and night and nearly died
The Bible explains that " My people perish because of lack of knowledge" this statement is valid because people go to the extreme to be like Lord Jesus Christ without enquiring from the holy spirit. They follow the footstep of Jesus by fasting for forty days and nights without confirming if they should or not.
The Bible also warns Christians in the book of Hosea 4 vs 6 and Isaiah 5 vs13, when it said that 'my people are in captivity because they lack knowledge. The holy spirit is not an author of confusion, if he needs you to go on a mission he will guide you through that mission and make sure you come out victorious.
This article will focus on some men of God who desired to be like Jesus and in the process of getting what they wanted they fasted for 40 days and 40 nights, off which some passed on, unfortunately.
