Sad news: Nigerian Prophetess 'Elemi' dies in London C&S Church twelve days into Twenty-one days Trance!

...he fell into a trance, 11And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending on him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth Acts 10:10

Heard through the grapevine today that a C&S church prophetess based in south east London, died early this week as a result of going on a Twenty one day 'trance'. The lady gave up the ghost just 12 days into the rigid rudiment of 'no food, no water' regime practised when on these trances.

What is a trance, it is I believe being in the Spirit and out of the body, so you are more aware of heavenly things and interact with heavenly beings and fed by angels. Whether this is true or false I do not know.

However, what I do know is that when I was growing up in Nigeria, I saw a lot of these ceremonies practised by people who had a rigid fasting life, used to the hot climate, the hard life and self denial of the luxuries of life. They have dedicated themselves just like we see the Hindu monks on TV dragging cars with their eye lids or slashing themselves with knives and yet unaffected. A disciplined life of suffering, hardship and endurance.

Here we are 20th century, living in the United Kingdom, no hardship, from car to house, no exercise, high calorie food consumption, high sugar drink intakes, cokes, juices, some of us don't even drink water and some when they profess to fast simply combine the 3 course meal at night!.  Most leave an unhealthy life, some overweight from eating too much red meat and suffer high blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems and seek spiritual help, instead of just padlocking their mouths!.

How then can anyone go on a 21 day 'no food and water' regime in this modern day society we live in and think the body wont shut down from loosing substantial amount of body fat and muscle mass, technically killing yourself depriving the body of nutrients needed. Scientist says you cannot survive after 3 days without water.  The lady slowly died of starvation, how sad.

My question will be: where were the church people when they noticed this woman was getting weaker and weaker, couldn't they have given her some water, fruit and perhaps tell her to give it up. I feel sorry for the family. May her soul rest in peace.

About time that this kind of practise be cancelled. I wonder what the British law says about it
