Kobus van Rensburg – Lied about his healing – Multiple times!

Kobus van RensburgIt has come to my attention that Kobus van Rensburg has once again duped his followers into believing that has been healed, however this is far from the truth.

This is the story of Kobus van Rensburgs so called ‘miraculous’ healing.

Kobus was diagnosed with cancer AGAIN after he went into remission. The second time, Prophet Ed Traut prophesied over him and told him that the 2nd time won’t be as long and as bad as the first, wherein he died several times.  Kobus van Rensburg and his wife Annalise flew over to Germany for nearly 2 months where he received treatment at an institute referred to by Johnson Olowokere.  Kobus van Rensburg led his followers on to believe that he received NO treatment at all.   After he came back his body was clean of cancer, but during their time in Germany he was diagnosed with several diseases; like heavy metal poisoning and another, an allergic reaction to the cold.  In the last week of October 2011 he was AGAIN diagnosed with cancer – a 3rd time, this time in his brain and according to the doctors his first two times with cancer was a walk in a park and the chemo and treatments for brain cancer will be the worst he’s ever experienced….

Nothing of this is shared on the TV channel or on the internet.  It is kept secret, hush hush.  Annalise and her sons are running Spirit Word Ministries from the back end trying to not let anyone know that the ‘gospel‘ they preach is false.

I feel terribly sorry for Kobus van Rensburg and I pray that he gets well, MORE IMPORTANTLY I pray that he realises he is following false teaching and preaching false teaching and that going to witch-doctors like T B Joshua to receive POWER is the CAUSE of his illness.  I pray that Kobus van Rensburg comes before the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible and repents of his ways and STOPS the lies and deception once and for all that he may be healed spiritually and physically!

I pray his followers open their eyes to the truth of the matter, open their bibles and seek Jesus Christ (The Way, The Truth, and The Life – bJohn 14:6) and not a man who claims he is immortal while on this earth.

Hi Deborah! I know a pastor who was recently asked by Kobus himself to pray for healing from the cancer he has! Heartbreaking these lies are’nt they? The sad thing is those who follow Kobus do so because they like being duped; they love it when they’re being lied to; the Bible wrote about them…
Keep well my friend!

Paul K

If you don’t have anything to say about our prophet keep your comment for your self. I believe Kobus van Rensburg is a man of God a Prophet send by God to heal the people of God, so keep you insults for yourself I take strongly exception of your insult.by the way if you have a face give details

Woahhh and I just found this on Youtube – seems Kobus is what is most commonly called: busted

False Prophet Kobus van Rensburg admits to having chemotherapy done for his cancer on 03/12/2011


Commentary: In this video, False Prophet Kobus van Rensburg admits to taking medicine as well as recieving chemotherapy(possible reason for his baldness) treatment for his ever-present cancer that was diagnosed a total of 3 times just this year alone. He also makes it seem like God is helping his recovery with his hemoglobin increase but it is a well known fact that the cancer medicine PROCRIT gradually increases hemoglobin and white blood cells when taken after chemotherapy. This is the reason for the increase.

This man claims to be a Prophet of God, who is anointed to heal the sick, yet if this was true he would never have gotten cancer in the first place. (( Mark 16-18 KJV: hey shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them.))

This false prophet “heals” many people of cancer, people who do not get chemotherapy and medicine, yet he puts his faith in doctors to give him chemotherapy and medicine instead of receiving healing through God. This doesn’t make sense for a man who calls himself a Prophet of God.

And if you dont have enough faith by yourself to get the healing, then why dont you ask that other False prophet Ed Traut to come help you get faith..you two are like the modern day Laurel and Hardy, I don’t need to say whose the fat smart one is, and who the skinny dumb one is.

Hey Kobus, you should just drop this act of immortality on earth and admit to being the false prophet that you are, maybe then you would get delivered from that “spirit of death” that you have, and possibly save your family from further distress.

There are also rumors that Kobus van Rensburg is faking his cancer diagnosis to claim that he has been healed by God at a later stage, possibly for fame and attention, as he has never provided proof of ever being diagnosed with cancer.


Like you said Paul K.., he’s your prophet…

I started to watch this clip, but it made me feel sick. Everything said about him and Ed Traut I agree with. I came out of a “church” where Mr Traut used to come and he prophesied to “only certain people”. I could never understand why only to the same people over and over again….ha….I want to be really cruel and say…get these people off the circuit!!!!! I feel ashamed to think that Kobus v Rensburg runs a church and deceiving his poor congregation. But as I said above, I came out of the same type of church….do you know what they really preach to get? Money and lots of money. I dont care if people want to crucify me for saying all this…but I have first hand experience about these false prophets. Keep on exposing them Deborah…just a pity not many people can get to know this! Bless you!


Apart from all the other heretic acts and teachings of Kobus,how does he know that he is a prophet? How do you, Paul, know that he is a prophet from God? Is it because he said so?

Paul admonishes believers not to go beyond the things which are written in I Cor 4:6. We are to live faithfully according to the Scriptures.

Truth and error are determined by the Word of God. I Thess 2:13 states that revelation is by means of words.It is the Scripture that contain Thus says the Lord.

So where does one get that he or she is a prophet? how do you get that? Please explain that to me?



Have anyone on this site or yourself written anything on the false prophet: Marc Bredenkamp? Have any research been done on him?

Look at his facebook page, etc: http://www.facebook.com/ProphetMarcBredenkamp

The false and so called prophets say; “peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape. I Thess 5:3


*sigh* Another job for us bodyguards


Similar to the dominionists and kingdom now preachers, he is or has already build an entire village in KZN, with church, up-market houses and all on a single piece of ground.
Like you said, no such thing as a prophet these days, one might still hold the office a prophet, i.e. warn Gods people, but only by what has already been written.
He also makes sure you understand he has a Doctorate in Theology or some biblical subject; apparently it was awarded to him because of his superior knowledge of Greek and Hebrew.
First problem, he has now pervious formal education, so from where the superior knowledge? Second, if he did understand Greek he will notice that ‘tongue/s’ in the Greek refers to a human language throughout the bible, so from where the babble and gibberish we hear in his sermons (a so called heavenly language) thirdly, the institute who issued the honorary degree, is not to be found on the web, and the one’s I did find bearing a similar name are all fake and unaccredited. So much for integrity, but I guess he has some business skills, as credentials surely do help to sell your product or service.


Dear Ginny,

do not shy away from the issue at hand, face the facts before you head into another direction with this, it is the only logical thing to do, unless the truth hurts?

Also before you point a finger at Deborah, take the bible if you have one and read it… Rules for judging John 7:24.

True believers are expected to judge people, places, and things…I Cor 2:15, mature christians who is led and taught by the Spirit, appraises all things, i.e. they can and should scrutinize, sift, and thereby understand all things; but unbelievers and even worldly-minded believers cannot appriase (understand) them.

Please consult a dictionary in order to understand the difference between gossip and judge! Then consult your bible on the matter of judging rightly…

We are to judge scripturally, God’s Word is the only absolute and trustworthy standard, Isaih 8:15. So if your prophet or your guru is not inline with the Word, we will speak out.

No ‘persons’ on this blog is respected in judgement Prov 24:23, again we see we are expected to judge.

We are to pray for judgement ability, I Kings 3:5-12, why? so that we might serve for the good of God’s people.

The facts are given with every judgement, so why do you complain about this? None are with excuse, therefore, the false prophets, false teachers and the unrighteous must be exposed and punished for they are like well-fed lusty horses, Jer 5:1, 8.

The preventive is to judge ourselves rightly, that which none of the false prophets do nor teach.. I Cor 11:30-31.

We are merely stating the facts, is that wrong? Please indicate by means of Scripture that what we are doing is wrong, and what your guru’s are doing is right, and I will apologise to the world and you…



And now that you got the truth once again will you still judge Deborah?
Or is this another hit and run?


Let’s stand up for Jesus! He died on the cross for everyone. Stop judging! Let’s love each other the way we are supposed 2!!


My Jesus, my saviour. My prayer for you – May you experience the power of the Holy Spirit in your life. Then the atmosphere will change around you. It’s not about Kobus, it’s about a personal relationship between you and Jesus. Try it! it is awesome. Leave Kobus alone, same with the other so called false preachers in your eyes. Look to the cross of Jesus Christ. He done it for you 2 and so for Kobus and all the other. I have an excitement in my heart that you will meet Jesus in 2012.




[deleted – if you like con-artists that lie and twist the gospel truth then go ahead, but I will open my mouth and warn and shout it out from the hill tops that the van Rensburgs are nothing but Charlatans and need to repent to Jesus Christ and stop what they are doing.]


Prophet kobus van rensburg is a true prophet of God.He will not die but live to proclaim the good news of christ,this is just a thorn in his flesh.Those that trust in the lord shall never be put to shame.


Jennifer and Ginny: I really feel sorry for the people who get duped by these so-called prophets of God. There’s usually a messy trail of hurt and disillusioned people – the walking wounded, who end up refusing to ever go back to church again after escaping from the clutches of these false prophets. I am speaking from my own experience with one of these two ‘prophets’ mentioned above and I am not the only one – there are MANY who have turned away from church because of the lack of love, the condemnation, the threats (even lawyers letters), the extreme control, etc of this leader! Is this how Jesus taught us to love the world? No…..I don’t think so. The word ‘cult’ comes to mind. I am reminded of the scripture, referring to shepherds and their sheep in Ezek34:
Woe to the shepherds of Israel who only take care of themselves! Should not the shepherds take care of the flock? You eat the curds, clothe yourselves with the wool and slaughter the choice animals, but you do not take care of the flock. You have not strengthened the weak or healed the sick or bound up the injured. You have not brought back the strays or searched for the lost. You have ruled them harshly and brutally. So they were scattered because there was no shepherd, and when they were scattered they became food for all the wild animals.
Then it goes on in verse 10 to say this: This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against the shepherds and will hold them accountable for my flock. I will remove them from tending the flock so that the shepherds can no longer feed themselves. I will rescue my flock from their mouths, and it will no longer be food for them…..
Gal 6:7: Do not be deceived. God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
I witnessed the deception. I believe that the Holy Spirit gave me discernment on many occasions as to what was really going on – and all these things were later confirmed to me as correct, by leaders who had left his church, and had first-hand knowledge that these things had indeed happened or taken place. This was the confirmation I had prayed for that I was indeed hearing correctly from the Holy Spirit.
We are living in a day and age where we need sharp discernment that comes through a close relationship with the Holy Spirit. It’s available to us all. The five-fold ministry is available to us all. We are all meant to be prophets and priests, not just a select few.


[deleted – you judge me while pointing out that I supposedly judge others – smart, verrrry verrryyyy smart.]

Pastor Ceasar

Prophet Kobus is a man of God and a manifesting son of God as Jesus was, Kobus is working of Romans 8:19. remember guyz even Jesus himself was rejected as a servant of god let alone son of god so i dont see the different now for what people talk about Prophet Kobus

Speak God's Word Only

(Deu 30:19)
I call heaven and earth to witness this day against you that I have set before you life and death, the blessings and the curses; therefore choose life, that you and your descendants may live
(Rom 8:13) -[EDITED by DTW – Kobusnites are known for their death threats]
For if you live according to [the dictates of] the flesh, you will surely die. But if through the power of the [Holy] Spirit you are [habitually] putting to death (making extinct, deadening) the [evil] deeds prompted by the body, you shall [really and genuinely] live forever. -[EDITED by DTW – Kobusnites are known for their death threats]
(Rev 21:8)
But as for the cowards and the ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage and the cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd and adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)–[all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death. [Isa. 30:33.] [Edited by DTW – if Kobus was not a cult leader I would take your quoting of biblical scripture seriously]
