[NEWS UPDATE – Kobus van Rensburg claims God healed him, and is telling all his followers this.  It has come to my attention that Kobus van Rensburg is in remission, BUT he did receive medication and Chemotherapy.  Kobus van Rensburg is still preaching Latter Rain Manifest Sons of God teaching and even more so promoting that one can be IMMORTAL on earth.  He also teaches his followers that they are Christ.  Please read the comments below (there are many of them) to see the degree of heresy and insanity taught by Kobus van Rensburg.  Also note his followers are not shy in threatening those who stand again Kobus van Rensburg.]

It’s a Tragedy

It has come to my attention that Kobus van Rensburg from Spirit Word Ministries has cancer and is very ill from what I have heard.  His wife Annalise is appearing more and more on his Spirit Word TV channel instead of Kobus as he battles to speak or is just not well enough.  There is very little information about this on the Internet.  Almost as if no one is supposed to find out.

I wrote an article on Kobus here about 2 years ago exposing him as a false prophet, who proclaimed thousands healed from cancer and HIV/AIDS, etc.  He still is a false teacher – nothing has changed, except he himself now has cancer.

So back to Kobus, and thinking about this situation of his.  The only thoughts that come to my mind is;  ‘what a tragedy’.   Here is a man who you can’t even approach and say,

“Dear Kobus, have you heard about Jesus Christ.  He is the ONLY One who can save you. Repent of your sin, repent of everything you have done.  It makes no difference what you have done, God forgives everyone who comes to Him asking for forgiveness.  Jesus Christ the Son of God gave His life so that you may receive eternal life – if you want it.  If you don’t want it and prefer to try be your own little god, you WILL fail and you WILL find yourself facing eternal punishment for doing exactly what Adam and Eve did by falling for Satan’s lie, ‘You surely will not die if you want to be like God?’  Well, yes Kobus you will.

Genesis 3:4-5

4  “The serpent said to the woman, “You surely will not die!
5  “For God knows that in the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

Satan wanted to like God:

Isaiah 14:14

14  ‘I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’

Satan is the father of Lies:

John 8:44

“You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

How easy it is for Satan to lead men astray:

2 Corinthians 11:3

But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.

There is a face book site dedicated to Kobus van Rensburg (having said that it does not state what’s wrong with him).  All you will find is people leaving comments praying for him to get well soon. You will see the theme of ‘immortality’ come across through the many comments left.  You see Kobus van Rensburg has reached godhood, and is therefore immortal.   Are you confused?  Don’t worry.  Me too.  Apparently in Latter Rain / Manifest Sons of God teaching you can be dead and alive all at the same time….I think.

Facebook: Kobus Van Rensburg will live and not die!!!!!

Now, it’s all very well to pray for Kobus to get well and that God heals him, but without Kobus coming to the Lord Jesus Christ to be saved all hope is lost.

Kobus went to see T B Joshua (Church of All Nations SCOAN)  in Nigeria and reported that after coming back to SA had a great anointing of power in his life.  Well Kobus, with the demonic power given to you, you were given demonic cancer as well.

“Repent Kobus, before it’s too late.  You are not immortal, you are not a god, you are a sinner in dire need of a Saviour and that Saviour is Jesus Christ the Son of God, who gave His life that you may be saved.  Through genuine repentance of your sin (everything you have done) and believing in Jesus Christ through faith you can be saved.  You might not beat this cancer Kobus, but you will beat a 2nd death and receive eternal life if only you turn from your wickedness and ask God forgiveness through His Only begotten Son Jesus Christ.  Humble yourself for once before the One and Only Living God like everyone else on this earth will have to do sooner or later.  Get on your knees Kobus, you are no better than anyone else on this earth of ours.  I repent every day of my life for the sinner that I am who needs constant saving.  What makes you think you are so special?  You are not!  Ask God for forgiveness before it’s too late”.

If anyone can find more information on Kobus’ condition, it would be appreciated.  I have contacted Spirit Word Ministries and received no reply.

  1. Charles,

    I’ve watched many videos, listened to audio clips and read many articles and often used them to expose apostasy, only to see later that those whom I exposed have retracted their material from the Internet. Now, as you know, this makes it very difficult to answer the queries you may get from others because you no longer have the hard copies of what they had said. The only thing left is to believe what I personally witnessed. There’s no need for you to become nasty about it, is there?

  2. Charles

    We are not attacking you, nor trying to pick an argument. I just got the feeling that you did not believe me – that’s all. But now I understand that it was just your opinion. And that is ok 🙂

    This is what they call a GRAVE takeover…

    “Already, many among van Rensburg’s flock have decided that in fact, their prophet does live — his body may be worm food, but his spirit is totally immortal, so there.
    While they and the family work through their grief, Kobus Junior has bravely taken over the family business. This is what he posted on his father’s Facebook page three days before the prophet’s death:”

    Copied from his facebook page:

    “If you want to support prophet Kobus van Rensburg, here is his details:
    (what follow are his banking details including account number, branch code etc)
    Be Blessed, Kobus Junior”

    Just like his immortal dad, Junior will go far.

    “A grave take over” lol

  5. Charles says:

    Tom, how did you interpret that I became nasty?
    I’m surprised by your responses. I know that this man visited houses / graves of some of the heroes of the faith and claimed to feel their anointing there. The actions described by Deborah don’t go against anything my research has revealed about the man, and I believe her account about what she saw. Some people who might have been taken in by this man might need more proof than this, and I suggested that it could be useful for anyone that has links to relevant information to post them here.

    I came to this site as a supporter. Maybe there is a set of circumstances where my comments could be interpreted as nasty, but I can’t envisage them.
    I would suggest that responding as you have to people that agree with you might not be ideal.
    I leave your site viewing it with less credibility than when I arrived.

    >> I would suggest that responding as you have to people that agree with you might not be ideal.

    The same for you.

    >> I leave your site viewing it with less credibility than when I arrived.

    Really? Have you not heard of forgiveness? We make mistakes. We all do.

  7. Charles,

    How many times do we have to tell you that we no longer have hte evidence we had? You were nasty when you said you were leaving this site because you did not get the answers you requested.

  8. Robbie says:

    You know Debs, I went back to 2009 on this article and all the comments placed and I can’t help but wonder what happened to Rentia, Gerhard, Glen, Hennie, Gary, Charles, Jane, Lettie, Leonie, prophet Carter and all those who scoffed and said that he was the “real thing” and that he was healed.

    WHERE are they today? – Do they still belong to this “liar’s club” (Heaven forbid)

    If the people of today lived in ancient Israel the directive by God to stone false prophets could never be carried out by the generation that was given the prophecies. They would have to wait for all the excuses to expire.

    People have very short memories because they continue to follow these liars in spite of their dismal record. But of course, this was all predicted to happen in the end times by God’s own prophetic word.

    So sad… but as long as there is life and A Redeemer…

  9. Robbie

    Yes Robbie, I have thought of this so many times. I often wonder when people come on here and give us a hard time, and later the truth comes out…where do these people go? They disappear, the don’t come back and say sorry or anything. I pray that even though these people don’t come back that they do have a change in mind and heart and learn the truth.
