Pastor SPITS on hand, RUBS it on face of churchgoer: ‘Receiving a vision from God might get nasty’

A pastor from Oklahoma has gone viral after spitting on his hand before rubbing it in the face of his brother during a sermon over the weekend to explain God’s ‘imperfect vision.’

The sermon from Pastor Michael Todd, who leads the Transformation Church in Tulsa, was based around the idea that ‘receiving a vision from God might get nasty’ – with Todd demonstrating the idea in grim fashion.

He elicited reactions of surprise and disgust from the congregation as he live-streamed the service, hawking a mouthful of spit and wiping it all over the face of his brother, who has not been named, and stood impassively during the stunt. 

‘Just as he’s physically standing here, knowing what’s coming.’

‘God is saying, “can you physically, spiritually and emotionally be able to stand?”‘

‘When getting the vision, or receiving it, it might get nasty.’

‘Receiving a vision from God might get nasty,’ Todd repeated as he smacked his spit-filled hands together. 

The churchgoer, reportedly Todd’s brother, somehow calmly takes the pastor’s spit on his face as Todd violates COVID-19 etiquette and transfers the contents of his nose and mouth onto the unnamed man’s face.

‘The vision I’m about to give you, it might get nasty,’ Pastor Todd said to a captive crowd as he swirled the spit about his hands. 

A long strand of spit can be seen dangling from the man’s face before he wipes it off incredulously. 

‘Do you hear and see the responses of the people?’ 

‘What I’m telling you, is how you just reacted, is how the people in your life will react when God is doing what it takes for the miracle.’

According to several social media users who commented under the Twitter video, the man who received the spit sermon was Pastor Todd’s brother, however that didn’t excuse the nastiness for some online parishioners.

‘So WHAT if that’s his brother!! That is DISGUSTING and BEYOND disrespectful.. you need to stop letting “men of God” tell u the things they do and say are “of God” and start recognizing it for what it is,’ tweeted Marquita Gibson. 

‘I clicked on his name trending and I saw ppl say spit, my definition of spit just just saliva… THAT is not spit!’ another person wrote.

‘That is a full on hacked up loogie… thick mucus’ they wrote before adding nauseated and vomiting emojis.

‘C’mon bruh! Nah dat ain’t Christian like,’ a third person tweeted. 

‘Oh hell, no there’s chunks in that,’ another person wrote.

‘The problem in 2022 is not vision… the problem is clarity of vision from God,’ Todd captioned an Instagram post Sunday while promoting the service’s live stream on his YouTube channel. 

‘Today’s word was too good to listen to only once!’
