An emerging video that captured a bizarre moment in a church has sparked reactions on social media.
In the video which was shared by a Twitter user with the handle @iamvictor_, church members were seen wielding various weapons ranging from brooms to planks and even what looked like a rifle.
The Twitter user who shared the video summarized the event that played out as:
"Church members praying and armed with different weapons to attack principalities and powers from the Marine kingdom."
It was also observed that they followed prayer directives from one who was on the pulpit, possibly the head of the church or prayer leader.
Tweeps have given mixed reactions to the clip which has got over 3k views as of the time of making this report.
"Waris dis! Physical weapon for a spiritual warfare? Na!"
"The truth is that thing might work or be working for them. Leave people and their believes alone abeg."
"As long as say no be physical warfare.... everybody go dey alright."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported about a viral video of pastor and church members fighting spiritual battles with cutlasses.
In the video, an unknown pastor and his church member were praying. This is quite a harmless thing to do considering that it is practised among many churches. But the way in which they were praying was very funny.
All the church members were wielding cutlasses and hitting them on the floor. As it appears, they were battling with the devil, hence, the need for a harmful object.
Even more, the pastor was also holding a cutlass and raising it up. There was also a red cloth in his hands. His church members also tied red clothes to their hands.
