Pastor Dies While Fasting

A 44-year-old pastor in South Africa tried to emulate Jesus Christ who fasted in the wilderness for 40 days and 40 nights to prepare for His ministry as written in the gospels of Luke, Mark and Matthew.

CHR Comment: Pastor Alfred Ndlovu apparently abstained from both food and water. The Gospels describe Jesus fasting for forty days and forty nights but they do not say that Jesus went without water as Pastor Ndlovu did. Exodus 34:28 tells us that while Moses was writing down the commandments on Sinai, he went without food and water for forty days and forty nights. But this must be regarded as a miraculous event, that Moses was sustained by the Lord since a human being cannot go so many days without water.
