Different nations across the world joined worshippers last Sunday to worship God and glorify His Holy name as they dadtuned in to Emmanuel TV.

Bubbling with enthusiasm, the children of God sang melodious songs of praises and worship as they joined the Emmanuel Singers in a divinely charged atmosphere.

The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave a thought-provoking message that put believers on their spiritual toes.crowd

“If you pray and you never hear from God, it does not mean that God is powerless – it means your relationship with God fails to prove that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. If you pray to God and don’t hear His voice saying, ‘Yes’ or ‘No’, it does not mean God is not alive. He is alive but your relationship with Him fails to prove that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is the same God who rescued Daniel, Meshack, Shahealing4drack and Abed-Nego’. Once again he challenged us to reflect inward on our relationship with God.

Later, the man of God mhealing3oved among the worshippers who were eager to hear from God and touched many lives through prophecies. The congregants witnessed a lot of revelations from which many bondages were broken and evil yokes were lifted from shoulders.

The day’s prayer line session which followed was also memorable to the glory of God as the man of God, by the power of the Holy Spirit, saw to the deliverance and healing of those afflicted, including those who threw away their crutches and walked out of their wheel chairs.

Speaking on the topic: JESUS CHRIST KNOWS YOUR SITUATION, Wise Man Daniel uplifted the faith of the wm danielsurging worshippers through a down-to-earth message of God’s unflinching love and care for His people whom He would never fail to uphold by His Word. The Wise Man enjoined the worshippers not be controlled by their situation and always see the saving grace of God’s presence. His words:

“What is your situation? As a Christian, don’t grumble, murmur or rebel because God is aware. What you are complaining about may be to preserve you for the purpose which God created you for. Remember, seeing what God says will produce and increase your faith. And when it is time for God’s purpose to be fulfilled in your life, there will be a driving force that will change your action and location. Don’t forget that many toil very hard and pray fervently, but the duty of God is to determine the time and season of harvest. Therefore, leave your situation for God because He knows. And because He knows, He will never leave you without solution. As Christians, as long as the world is in place in our lives, Christ will be displaced. As long as self-confidence is in place in our hearts, the confidence born of God will be displaced. Jesus Christ is a democrat- He does not impose His Will on anyone. He allows us to exhaust whatever worldly advantages we feel we have so that, when we have learnt lessons, we would value Him.”

healing1The day also witnessed prayer for the nations, reaching out to a troubled world conducted by Prophet T.B. Joshua, who afterwards encouraged the congregation that due to the distractions in this world, the only way to maintain breakthrough is by meditation.  “I mediate on the Word day and night. Whatever I do prospers.”

healing2Not to leave any room for satan to manipulate, the new Anointing Water was also administered on all present to ensure that no one escaped the anointing of God.

It was a glorious day, the name of the Lord was magnified, Praise the Lord.


The biblical truth that God inhabits His people and would never forsake His own was clearly evident and exemplified in the last Sunday service at The SCOAN. Heaven literally came down and the glory of God filled the souls of worshipers as they worshipped Him in the beauty of His holiness.

 

The entire worshippers were spiritually electrified with the splendour of God’s power and faithfulness. His enduring mercy, goodness and grace ran through the whole day’s colourful service.

 

An array of soul searching, spiritually uplifting songs of praise and worship by Emmanuel singers which touched the hearts of the entire congregation set the tune for the rest of the day’s service.

 

The mPROPHET T.B. JOSHUAan of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua inspired the souls of the congregants with his incisive and powerful message titled, ‘You Have To Experience God’. The message, which opened the spiritual eyes and hearts of worshippers, became a platform for critical self evaluation of individual’s Christian life with sober reflection as could be seen in the profound calmness that encapsulated the worshippers. The man of God, without mincing words, emphatically stated that until one experiences God, there can be no satisfaction in one’s life. He said that satisfaction in life was not about money or other worldly possessions but about truly experiencing God.

 

‘’Until you experience God, there will be dissatisfaction in your life – a sense of hunger to know what life is all about, a desire to know what happens after life is over,’’ he said, adding that these are the thoughts that continue to disturb unbelievers.

 

According to the man of God, age has nothing to do with death as one could be called at a young, middle or old age. However, this remains a big puzzle to those who have not experienced God by their wondering of when, how and what type of death would meet them. He clarified that when one truly experienced God, one would have answers to these questions. ‘’Those who are born of God: believers, born again, born from above long to be there. This is how you know you are born again,’’ he stated.

 

Figuratively describing this earth as a market, Prophet T.B. Joshua said, “No matter how long you spend in the market, no matter the profits you gain, you cannot sleep there – you have to come back home. It is not a comfortable place to sleep, no matter how beautiful, profitable or good that market is, you must come home; the market is no man’s land.’’

 

Shedding more spiritual illumination to the worshippers, he continued, “We know where we belong, where faith will be turned to sight. We say we walk by faith but there, faith will be turned to sight. Faith is expecting Jesus to do what He promised. Here, we close our eyes; over there, we open them in the world of glory.’’

 

Like a bombshell to the congregation whom he had previously enjoined to truly worship God in Spirit, Prophet T.B. Joshua again posited: “When you are worried over when, how and what will happen after this life is over, know that your relationship with God is questionable. Those who have a good relationship with God long to be there just as those who maintain their relationship with God also long to be with Him. Many of them always ask, “When am I going there? When will that be?” But for others, this is a place they don’t want to leave because they don’t know what will happen next. The desire to know what happens after this life is over – that is the thought in the hearts of those who have nowhere to go.’’

 

On the necessity of adversities in human life, the Prophet raised the worshippers’ understanding to know that “tests and trials are meant for our belief”, noting that “when an issue remains unchangeable, there is nothing we can do.” However, God will not do anything without first revealing it to His servants, he clarified. “The evidence of God in the life of a prophet, a minister of God, is acting with Him, knowing God’s opinion about himself and others. When you act with God, you will know God’s opinion about yourself and others,” he explained.

 

To further educate people, Prophet T.B. Joshua explained that anybody could gather a crowd, have branches or the largest church all over the world but not anyone could stand a trial without the help of God. He continued, “What the crowd is mostly looking for is outward gifts but to keep this crowd in terms of tribulation, trials and tests, it takes God.” He concluded, “You do not need God to bring a crowd together but to keep them when trials come, God must be involved.’’

 

After finishing his message, the man of God moved around and prophesied to the lives of many people in which the fundamental problems affecting them were revealed with such identified yokes broken by the power of the Holy Ghost in the name of Jesus Christ.

 

The man of God also attended to hundreds of afflicted on the Prayer Line. It was a powerful time of healing and deliverance from diverse afflictions in the lives of those that received prayer. They were all set free from their satanic bondages.

 

WISEMAN CHRISTOPHEREarlier, Wise Man Christopher had aroused the spiritual appetites of the congregants with his short but deeply spiritually provocative message, titled, ‘The Way To The Kingdom Of God.’  Speaking from John 14:6 as his proof text, Wise Man Christopher quoted the Lord’s Words: ‘’I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”.

 

“Here, Jesus Christ tells us that He is the Beginning, Middle and End. To get to the Kingdom of God, we must follow the way of the Cross. The way of the Cross is the way to the Kingdom of God,” he began.

 

He said the way to the Kingdom of God is not without its challenges. According to him, it is full of hatred, thorns, snakes, scorpions, persecution, intimidation, blackmail, slanderous remarks, campaigns of calumny, name-calling, among many other unpleasant experiences. He further stated that “the highway to the Kingdom of God starts on this side of death and the entrance is very easy to find. It is right in front of you, in the Word of God.”

 

He said the good news is that Jesus died for our sin and broke the power of death by His resurrection, adding that whoever calls on the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, with faith in God’s Word, shall be saved.

 

“So, keep the Word of God in your mouth, meditate on it day and night and do what the Word says, for this is not only the process of believing but also the way to the Kingdom of God. God is building Himself and His Kingdom into us, making Himself and His Kingdom a part of us as His Word dominates, rules and sanctifies our spirit natures. This shows that God and His Kingdom are within us in the Living Word,” he enjoined the worshippers.

 

The service came to an end with the mass prayer conducted by the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. It was another moment of commotion in the kingdom of darkness as all hidden demonic problems were also x-rayed and flushed out as they manifested.

 

CROWDAll the congregants also received the touch of the Anointing Water in order to ensure that no one went back with his or her problem. It was a marvellous day as the name of the Lord was glorified.

As the congregation sang and praised the name of the Almighty God, Prophet T.B. Joshua came to the altar and addressed the congregation:

PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA

PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA

“Good morning church and viewers all over the world. I want to thank you for your prayer and your love for the victims and relations of all those involved in the incident.

“The battle is for the Lord. I really want to thank God. God has been doing so much. We need to know a thousand victories, all the way long. Glory and honour to God Almighty.

“For those who are outside the Lord, they would not know. When you are outside God, you will not know what I am talking about. When you are outside the light, you can’t understand what I am talking about.

“For the three weeks before the incident, if you heard my message and sat down, you would know I was giving you a vision and prophetic Word on how to handle the situation at hand. Trials and tests are meant for our belief. I go by the directives of God.

THE CHURCH AUDITORIUM

THE CHURCH AUDITORIUM

He continued, “I salute the martyrs of faith and the victims. I also salute their relations. My love and my prayers are always with them. The martyrs, victims and their relations, what they would like to see is the work of God continue. That is what they died for, suffered for and are living for.

“From your heart, commit the relations of the martyrs to God. Ask God to strengthen them and open their understanding more to know and understand what happened here. Ask God to give them the grace to continue in God. In Him we live; in Him we move. Ask God to give them the grace to continue the work of salvation.

“Remember the victims in one way or the other and ask for God’s intervention. Ask God for His power of resurrection within them and outside them, in Jesus Christ’s name we pray.

 

“Remain silent and give thanks to God, within you. I want you to change your confession and give thanks to God.

“Speaking on the need to exercise faith, the man of God enjoined all to listen to God, not men. He said further, “Don’t let your faith be disturbed. If anyone wants to disturb your faith with their negative words and message, remember God. See the need of God the more. See the need of serving the Lord the more, the need of moving closer to Him.

“Don’t be disturbed. Pray for the relations; pray for the victims. That is your assignment – your love and prayer for the victims and the relations of the martyrs. That is your duty at this time.

“Don’t allow yourself to be used by satan. If you do, satan will use his people to run to you and disturb you the more. This is an opportunity for them to disturb your faith with their negative words. Those who hate you and those who want you to die will run after you because of this issue. It is not that they love you but they want to see your countenance, your appearance, how you look and whether you are worried. Never allow this. Remember Jesus. Don’t change your words in a moment. Jesus is Lord.

“What you saw happen – God is aware. If God is aware, who else is aware does not matter. The martyrs, victims and relations want to see your faith grow; they want to see the work of salvation and the work of God in your life continue. They want to see you serve the Lord the more. The only way you can allow the work of God to continue is to be with yourself and God, not to allow intruders and people around you to advise you and tell you what to do when they could not stop what happened.

“I pray the satanic agents should be the only ones to suffer this. I said, our God will get back to them. Warn your family and brothers about their talk. You will know I am a man of God this time. People who are looking for your downfall and run to disturb your spirit, warn them to be careful of their tongues and the people who come to them. God is a God of vengeance – anybody can go for it.

“You cannot help me, only God. Don’t disturb me; please leave me with God. You will see the outcome. I am saying this so that only the people who did this will suffer for it and you will not in any way suffer for it. The people who are writing whatever they are saying – all of us will see the outcome of this. Leave it for God.

“I have been on this journey for 27 years. Do you think God can close His eyes and rubbish everything here? They are asking God to bring more evidence of whether He is the One who called me. Warn everyone to be very careful. This issue at hand is a delicate issue.

“People are using all this to gain money and friends. This is a warning. Whatever anybody wants to write, let them write it; they will be the ones to read it.

“I said, our God will get back to them. He has started somewhere. He is coming. If your brother is involved, unless he can resurrect the people who died, he will join them. If you can resurrect the people who died, you can go free. The servants, the people who sent them, the people who heard the stories all around and those who want to use it for themselves and disturb my spirit, you may likely join them. Be careful. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. Let us be very careful of our tongue.

“Your responsibility is to the victims and the relations of the victims and martyrs of faith. If you say you are born again, wherever the victims and their relations are, wherever the relations of the martyrs of faith are, look for them. Let them know you are praying for them. What you eat, let them eat it. What you wear, let them wear out of it. What you have on your table, let them have it on their table, too. Share what you have with them – your love, prayer, affection and strength. Share it with them at this time. This is what we call ‘born again’ – my pain is your pain. Your joy is my joy.

“The trillion people who claim to be with T.B. Joshua in prayer – if the same trillion people turn to the families of the victims and martyrs of faith, do you not think life would be better for them than before? Join them, look for them, as many others are doing now.”

The message was followed by powerful words of prophecy as Prophet T.B. Joshua, led by the Spirit of God, moved amidst the congregation, giving words of knowledge and prophecy to people proving that we are truly under God’s eyes. With the root cause of their problems exposed, the people breathed a sigh of relief knowing that God had indeed taken over their problems and solution is just a moment away.

Earlier on, Wise Man Harry encouraged the congregation and viewers of Emmanuel TV worldwide with a message about the life of Joseph and his journey to the throne.  He said, “Many of us today are without faith and hope because everything seems to go contrary to our expectations. For instance, when we expect breakthrough in our businesses, we receive setback. In place of good health, we begin to experience sickness.”

WISE MAN HARRY

WISE MAN HARRY

He added, “There comes a time in our lives where we feel as if the world around us is coming to an end. It is in critical situations like this that we know who is a man of faith. Just because you are a Christian does not mean that satan cannot attack you because anything close to Jesus receives attack.” In summary, Joseph’s journey started from his father’s house to the dry pit; from the dry pit to slavery; from slavery to the prison and from the prison to the throne. At last, he found himself in the position of influence and he was able to re-unite with his family. His life’s experience teaches us two things:

  1. No matter how long a lie is sustained truth will someday prevail.
  2. The position of influence must begin with suffering. It began with a wound – being sold into slavery – and he became a pearl of usefulness.

“What is your dry pit right now?” asked Wise Man Harry.  Your own dry pit may come in form of sickness, poverty, disappointment. Joseph did not stay in the dry pit; he moved on! This means, your dry pit, slavery and your prison condition is not your destination! Your destination is the throne!

“God never promised to keep us away from trials but He promised to see us through. Through your crises, God is what you need Him to be. He’s ready to go through the dry pit, slavery, prison, fire, the valley of the shadow of death with you”. He concluded by saying that as a man of vision, patience, perseverance and endurance are your tools. Use them continuously!

RUTH KAFUNDA

A touching turn to the service came when 77 year-old Ruth Kafunda from Zambia cried out at the prayer line for deliverance from a 10 year addiction to eating anthill soil.
Speaking in her local dialect, she explained further that three of her children were mentally disturbed and because of that, she had been accused of being a witch.
According to the elderly lady, since 2009, she had been saving money to come to The SCOAN After the recent incident, when others didn’t want to follow her to The SCOAN, she insisted on coming and came alone with the faith that Jesus would deliver her through Prophet T.B. Joshua.

PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA PRAYS FOR RUTH KAFUNDA

PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA PRAYS FOR RUTH KAFUNDA

Of all graces, faith honours Christ the most. Of all graces, Christ honours faith the most. After prayer from Prophet T.B. Joshua at the prayer line, she was delivered from the evil spirit that had caused her to be addicted to eating ant hill soil. Spitting out the soil after the deliverance, she declared that it no longer tasted sweet. With the belief and faith that her whole family had been delivered, Mrs Ruth joyfully thanked God for her encounter with Jesus Christ at The SCOAN prayer line.

Prophet T.B. Joshua Last Sunday’s service came and passed but the declaration by the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, to take the Gospel to South Africa’s doorstep will remain engraved in the minds of many people and remembered as the day when God let the gates of His anointing freely flow to the ‘unreachable places’ of Southern Africa. Addressing the congregation, slightly over a week after the September 12 incident, the man of God announced the need to commemorate the ‘martyrs of faith’ who passed on as a result of the incident.  Making the announcement to the thousands that gathered at The SCOAN and viewers worldwide, he said: “Those who are affected in one way or another and those who passed on to glory, their greatest desire is to see that the work of salvation they died and suffered for continues and for it to reach unreachable places. For that, what they are coming here for should be taken to meet them in their country. Once in a month, I will be travelling to South Africa to meet people from South Africa and other nations who find South Africa easier to visit, in memory of the martyrs of faith.”  The announcement was greeted with a din of applause from the 20,000 plus worshippers who gathered in the church auditorium and spilled to the canopies. Explaining the new development, the man of God said: “I cannot afford to offend the saints if I want to be a saint. I cannot afford to offend the martyrs if I want to be one. This kind of faith expressed by South Africans deserves this kind of blessing from God. It is a price I must pay. Satan is a liar.”  Prophet T.B. Joshua, however, said his ministration in South Africa would not be on Sundays so that people would have the opportunity to attend their respective churches.  He added: “The martyrs of faith had their various churches which they attended but came here for healing, deliverance and to increase their faith.”

A video was then shown of the first South African to visit The SCOAN. In the video, recorded in 1999 when the man – a pastor, set foot at The SCOAN, he said the Lord spoke to him to go around the world and look for an anointed man of God and receive from him. He went everywhere around the world and did not see a place where God was moving like The SCOAN. He prophetically emphasised that the grace God had given to the ministry should be allowed to go all around the world or great persecution would come that would force the ministry to go out into the world.

Commenting on the video and recent developments, Prophet T.B. Joshua said: “We have a role to play to protect the work of God; to protect God’s manifestation. It is like the church building here, God will not come and clean the church and the chairs. This is our role. We built this church. At this hour, you will know that what is happening here is from God. When the finger of God is passing through the shadow of death, you will know it is the finger of God. The manifestation of God is becoming too big and it needs to be cared for.”The man of God then proceeded to the prayer line where God manifested His power through healings and deliverances performed in the name of Jesus Christ.

Wise Man Racine Earlier, Wise Man Racine delivered to the congregation a faith-building and encouraging message titled: ‘Heavenward with Christ Jesus’ – a call for Christians to value salvation over other things. Quoting various scriptures, he said problems would always come but this should not divert people’s focus and belief in Christ Jesus, Who is the Way.  He said, “To get to Heaven, you must follow the way of the Cross. Jesus said that in this world we shall face problems but we should not be troubled because He has overcome. He promised to strengthen our spirit with His Spirit. To a true believer, death is his release from the imprisonment of this world and his departure to the enjoyment of another world. If you put your faith in Christ Jesus, death is not a period, it is only a comma. You need not fear where you are going when you know Jesus is going with you.”

The service closed with the ministration of The New Anointing Water and many more souls were set free from bondage of
disease, sickness and various afflictions.

DO NOT MIND THE DEVIL!

Last Sunday service nothing could obstruct God’s anointing that filled The SCOAN and brought healing and deliverance to the sick and the afflicted. From the soulful songs of worship to the day’s message of hope, God’s outpouring of grace was prevalent for all who put a demand on the anointing.

DADDY1 The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, addressed the congregation on emerging issues before he moved on to the prayer line where he ministered to visitors who had come from all over the world in search of a touch from Jesus Christ through the man of God. Scores of people received deliverance and healing and were declared free, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

Earlier, Wise Man Daniel preached a powerful message titled, ‘Do Not Mind The Devil’, saying, “As a child of God, whatever your situation is, there is a hidden agenda, plan, entity or principality satan is using to undo you or harm you. Fight the devil ‘til the last minute. Don’t give up! Take the strength you need from Christ Jesus. There is not enough physical strength to defeat satan. There is not enough mental strength to defeat satan; satan can only be defeated in the spirit by the power in the blood of Jesus Christ. Never doubt God’s desire or ability to help you. Be patient! Let God answer your question on His schedule, not yours. God’s time is the best. At God’s time everything is beautiful.”

WMD1

He urged Christians not to be troubled by satan or frustrated by his tactics. Instead, he said, it was their duty and right to challenge him boldly in Jesus’ name because they have the power of the name Jesus Christ at their command.

Selecting his proof text from Ephesians 6:11-13, he said Christians must walk in the spirit in Christ Jesus always, if they are to claim victory over the devil.

“Remember, the right to pray and receive an answer is given to every believer. Therefore, a real Christian is someone who possesses what it takes to overcome and cast out satan – not only out of his own life but also out of the lives of others,” he said, adding, “It is clear that we are not combating flesh and blood but the principalities and powers of darkness in the Heavenly places. That is, we are fighting against demons of all ranks, of all kinds and of all authorities. Remember, satan is our common enemy; He is the one attacking mankind everywhere. To combat satan and emerge victorious is not a matter of combining your own strength with that of Jesus Christ. Rather, it is a matter of total and complete removal of your own strength in order to put on the strength of Christ Jesus.”

Shedding more light on the characteristics required to emerge victorious over satan, he said Christians must begin to believe in God, stand upon His Word and build themselves up spiritually “because our enemy is a person but a person without body.”

He explained: “You cannot build one up spiritually on philosophies or on theories about the Word, or on the history about the Word. We are made spiritual by living in the Word and the Word living in us. This means that, it is not only committing the Word to memory which is valuable, but also letting the Word become an integral part of our being by meditation. Remember, meditation in God’s Word is a visit with Him.”

“Satan knows that he cannot stop those who have spiritual insight into Christ’s life. God gives everyone plenty evidence to believe in Him. There is nothing more ridiculous than to allow your present situation to cause you to doubt the fulfilment of God’s Word or promises for your life.”

The service closed with the ministration of the New Anointing Water by evangelists and many more souls were liberated to freedom from sickness and affliction, in Jesus’ name!

“Emmanuel – God is with us.

“The pain of one is the pain of all. It is indeed a sad and painful moment for the families and friends who have lost loved ones. It is equally so for us in The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (The SCOAN), under the leadership of Prophet T.B. Joshua.

On Friday, September 12, 2014, at about 12:44pm, one of the buildings on The SCOAN property unexpectedly collapsed, tragically resulting in death and injury. Nigerians, South Africans and citizens of other nations were affected. This incident was preceded by the appearance of a strange aircraft which flew very low over the building four times and then disappeared.

“Since the day of this incident, The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, its members and partners, have worked in collaboration with the Nigerian, South African and other nations’ authorities to ensure that survivors are rescued, attended to with the best medical treatment, cared for in the most humane and hospitable manner and reunited with their families, while those who passed on – martyrs of the Kingdom of God – are retrieved, identified and treated respectfully.

Amongst those we are working hand-in-hand with, are: The Federal Government of Nigeria, the Government of the Republic of South Africa, Lagos State Government, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), the Lagos State Ministry of Health – doctors and nurses, the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON), the Red Cross, the Nigeria Police Force and various Non-governmental and humanitarian organisations and construction and engineering corporations.

“It is very sad that inaccurate reports are coming from some quarters that we are not cooperating with the rescue teams and other agencies in collating information and providing assistance on the incident. Contrary to this, we want to categorically state that the church has provided assistance when and where required and continues to do so – good Christians are good citizens.

“We emphasise our commitment to cooperate with all relevant authorities in establishing the cause of the collapse of the building.
The church views this tragedy as part of an attack on The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations and in particular, Prophet T.B. Joshua. In due course, God will reveal the perpetrators of this unfortunate tragedy.

“We wish to express our gratitude to all who continue to work tirelessly, show their solidarity and share their condolences in this grievous time, particularly all Government and non-Governmental bodies mentioned above, Diplomatic Missions, National and International media houses, society groups, traditional rulers, all concerned citizens and the residents of our local community, Ikotun-Egbe. We equally appreciate all members and partners of The SCOAN and Emmanuel TV, along with Christians and clergy worldwide for their prayers and support.

“To all those who lost family members and loved ones, please accept our heart-felt commiserations. No one knows by the present sign or situation what the future holds. We must therefore live each day as if it were our last and leave tomorrow’s trouble for the One who bore our troubles on the cross. We thank God for the martyrs and we pray for the family members and loved ones left behind.”

The overcoming presence of God’s glory and the power of the Holy Ghost were unmistakably prevalent on Sunday as, in His infinite mercy, He filled The SCOAN with the anointing that brought healing and deliverance to the sick and afflicted, shattering chains and setting the captives free. The instant the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, spoke the word of authority and commanded satan’s grip to loose, Heavens’ response was spontaneous as people caught the fire, fell under the anointing and vomited poisonous substances to signify the expulsion of darkness for light. Those who worshipped through Emmanuel TV and other various mediums, were as equally convicted by the living and piercing Word of God as those that were physically present at the Arena of Liberty as satan lost his hold on their lives and bowed out.

 

PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA

PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA

Mounting the pulpit, the man of God meticulously dwelled on the important issue of faith, outlining deep things that are a hindrance to prayer. Flipping to the book of Hebrews 4:3, he pinpointed freedom of the spirit as one such barrier, noting that when one’s spirit is free it becomes sensitive to the Spirit of God unlike when it is in a state of dullness, worry and anxiety.

 

He explained, “Even when you are in the presence of God, you are worried. It is due to the activity of the devil’s nature. Keep your heart from cares, worry, anxiety or concern because Christianity lies in the heart. When you pray over some matter and yet afterwards, you find yourself still worrying over it, still full of anxious concern, just as if you have never prayed at all, it is because your spirit is not free. When your spirit is not free, it can never be sensitive to the Spirit of God. It can never feel the Spirit of God. It can never be attracted to the Spirit of God.”

 

Delivering an insight to powerful and effective prayer, Prophet T.B. Joshua said prayer for any matter should be followed by an attitude of absolute trust in God that He is now working out the answer. 

 

“You believe God will do it for you and He has been doing it for you. Why are you troubled, anxious and worried, then? Is it because you are afraid that He will not do it well? Christian faith demands that we truly rest in which the heart is free from worry, anxiety, depression, pressure and burdens, free from labour – that is Christian faith. For your heart to be free from worry, for your body to be free from labour, you must have faith in the finished work of our Lord, Jesus Christ, not faith in yourself. Faith is a gift from God”, he said before proceeding to minister prophecy to individuals and the world.

Earlier, Wise Man Christopher dispatched an encouraging message titled: No Competition In Destiny, saying, “The beauty in creation is that human beings long for eternity, yet they cannot understand what God has done from the beginning to the end. God allows everything to take place at their appointed time and season. We may not understand it, but it is this that constitutes the beauty in creation.”

TESTIMONIES

Where God’s anointing flows, testimonies are endless. Scores of people lined up to give their testimonies of what God has accomplished in their lives. We give you a selected few of the testimonies:

 

A LETTER TO JESUS STOPS BEDWETTING

Anthony Ochieng from Kenya and his mother, Mary Ochieng, came to share an astounding testimony of deliverance from bedwetting since birth.

 

The mother narrated the horrible situation the family had found themselves in as a result of her son’s affliction. They thought that it would be a temporary problem that would fade with age but instead of the bedwetting to reduce, it became worse. “He gave up on life at an early age”, she explained, adding that he would wet himself anywhere he was, including at school or in the car. He would force himself to stay awake at night and wait in an attempt to avoid waking up soaked but each night ended in disappointment.

Because of the bullying he was receiving at school, his parents moved him to another school with fewer students but that didn’t help either. The teasing continued and, as a result, Anthony became bitter, violent and rude, fighting every day. Mrs Ochieng would always be called to come and get her son as the teachers could not handle him. He was sent out from school and Mary found another one for him. In the third school, he got so bad that he started fighting the teachers. It was a sad day indeed when the headteacher called her to the office declaring that she should withdraw Anthony from the school and that they didn’t want her money. They also refused to issue a letter to enable them to apply for another school for Anthony.

 

One day, Anthony called his brother and told him that if his bedwetting did not stop, he was going to jump off the roof and end his life. His father and mother decided to give themselves to prayer. A short time later, a friend called her from the USA and asked if she knew T.B. Joshua. She had not but began to search on the internet and watch videos of the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua. She later installed Emmanuel TV in the house. One day, she was watching and a lady was giving testimony concerning deliverance from bedwetting. She instantly called Anthony to come and watch and told him by faith, “Ours must be over today!” Anthony on his own responded by getting a pen and paper and writing a letter: “Dear Jesus, God of T.B. Joshua, please help me to stop bedwetting and be a good boy”. He then placed the letter on the screen of Emmanuel TV and held it there until the man of God had finished praying. A few minutes later, he felt tired and went to bed. The next morning, to his mother’s shock and surprise, he came out and told her that the bed was not wet.

 

A curse of 15 years had been broken in a moment. Within a few months, Anthony returned to school and is now doing well. The affliction of bedwetting is only a memory and the rage and bitterness have completely disappeared.

 

Immaculately dressed, Anthony advised all viewers that they can receive their freedom just by watching Emmanuel TV and having faith in the name of Jesus.

 

GOD RESTORED MY GUTTED LIFE!

Successfully running a thriving spare parts business in Cameroon, Chief Kenneth Chukwuma was an undisputable guru in his trade for over 26 years when one day the devil hit.  A raging fire burnt down the shop and consumed everything he had laboured for, reducing to ashes property worth a whopping 350million naira. Shocked and himself equally gutted, he toyed with the idea of committing suicide as life no longer mattered to him.

On advice from his friend, he came to The SCOAN to seek the face of God. It was to mark the rebirth of his fortunes. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, blessed him with the Anointing Water and advised him to minister it, in Jesus’ name, in the same shop that was now in rubbles. He prayed and asked God to restore him. Not long after, people who owed him money, started to pay back and he soon relaunched his business. To God be the glory, he now boasts of more than what the fire had destroyed. He also managed to build a magnificent residence in Cameroon where he has also now been appointed President of Nigerians living in Northern Cameroon. He can once again call himself a successful man.

 

He advised: “Trust God because he is the ultimate.”

 

PROPELLED TO ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

INNOCENT

Mr Innocent who lives and studied in Ukraine, came to share what God has done in his life. He came to The SCOAN in 2002 due to the career setback he had been facing. He had previously won an award for his educational ability but despite this, he could not move forward in his education. He went to three different educational institutions but did not gain admission to the courses he chose. He became confused and didn’t know what to do. After his visit to The SCOAN, he had a dream in which he saw Prophet T.B. Joshua talking to him and discussing many things. When he woke up, he remembered ‘Engineering’. So he started to look for a course in Engineering. He found a course in Ukraine and applied for the national university.  He was accepted and God made a way for him to travel and start the course in Ukraine. As he started, his grades would range from a couple of A’s and B’s then all else would be C’s; for him to pass that would not do. He started watching Emmanuel TV through the internet and praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. His grades began to improve and throughout his third year he got straight A’s. He was awarded with a certificate for best student of the year and got a GPA of 5 out of 5. Needless to say, he achieved a first class certificate in telecommunications engineering. An educational turnaround indeed!

 

HOW THE SPIRIT OF LUST RAVAGED MY LIFE

Miss Kehinde Afolabi traced her pitiable life story to when she was only two years old. She had been sexually abused and unbeknown to her, an evil spirit of lust that would torment her for many years, had entered her. At age 15, she discovered she had a chronic lust for men and every man she wanted, she got. In a day, she would sleep with up to seven men purely for satisfaction. She had no control over herself, sleeping in guest houses with all sorts of men older than her. Later, she decided to travel to South Africa, hoping to eke out a new life. It only got worse. Sad to say, every man she slept with would eventually abuse and kick her out of his house. Inevitably she was introduced to prostitution which entailed the same lifestyle she had been living but included cash this time. The word love never existed in her life and she went to do abortions a number of times.

Last month, she encountered a man on the internet whom she befriended and agreed to marry. Lured to the idea of finally settling down, she returned to Nigeria where a nightmare was sadly waiting for her. The man was not who he said he was but a fraudster who simply abused her, snatched all the money she had raised while prostituting in South Africa and kicked her out. Stranded, she went back to prostitution.

 

Last week, she resolved to go back to her old life in South Africa when at the airport, she met a multitude of people from South Africa coming to The SCOAN. She was astounded because she had always regarded the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, in negative light. As God would have it, the moment she landed in South Africa, she was deported. Her next destination, as it were, was to be the same place she had stayed away from due to false rumours. In search of divine help and left with no options, she swallowed her pride and came to The SCOAN. During the ministration of the New Anointing Water, the evil spirit inside of her was exposed and forced to confess all the atrocities it had caused her. Delivered and declared free in the name of Jesus Christ, she came to express how her life had finally changed and how she no longer lusts for men. All she wanted now, she said, was to take care of her six year-old twins she, by the grace of God, had not been able to abort. She advised parents to properly take care of their children and make sure they are indeed in school. “Many children are prostituting and not in school as they make you believe,” she warned.

 

 

WEDDING RING RETURNED, MARITAL BLISS RESTORED

Strange addictions and experiences tormented the life of Kenyan national, Joseph Muthee Mukindia. All seemed well and sweet before marriage but after the ceremony, each time he looked at his wife, he was disgusted. He no longer saw her as beautiful and gave every excuse in the world not to meet with her. He heard a voice telling him to remove his wedding ring and as soon as he did, this signaled the death of all affection between them.

 

JOSEPH MUTHEE MUKINDIA

Soon, they were sleeping in separate rooms and Mr Mukindia kept praying that one day his wife would be tired and leave the matrimonial home. Whenever friends or colleagues asked if he was married, he would be angry. In social gatherings, he would move with single people. Something within him felt that it was right for him to be a single man. All the while, his wife was silently praying and fasting, believing that their situation could turn around. In six years of marriage, they had not met as husband and wife. Nobody knew this. Those who knew them were just asking where the fruit of the marriage was.

 

While discussing the issue, he prompted his wife that it would be better for both if she would just leave. But she insisted, saying that even if he could not perform, that should not be a reason for her to abandon him. He became frustrated with her stubbornness to stay! While all this was going on, the same evil spirit that wanted separation was evoking a strange addiction within Mr Mukindia. He developed a craving to eat his fingers. After eating his dirty nails, he would proceed to sink his teeth into each of his fingers, one by one. Once he had brought blood from a finger and felt satisfied by the taste, he would move to the next finger and bring out blood from it. This became a daily habit. As if that was not enough, he kept on getting sick with various bacterial stomach infections plaguing him every moment. He became lean and weak.

 

Apart from that, his wife had become tired. She sent him a text, telling him that she had prayed and fasted but was now ready to give up, declaring her intention to leave the marriage. A friend then encouraged him to watch Emmanuel TV and helped him install it in his home. As he began to watch, the heaviness within him was lifted and his hope became alive. He prayed with the man of God while touching the screen and that horrible addiction was gone in a moment. Incredibly grateful to God, he decided to visit The SCOAN in December 2013, believing for further deliverance and breakthrough. Just as he had believed, while at The SCOAN, he received what he had prayed for. Prophet T.B. Joshua while at the Prayer Line gave him a word of prophecy, telling him that there was crisis in his home and that his wife had threatened to leave him. He confirmed the prophecy and received his deliverance instantly. As he returned home, he called his wife who excitedly responded that she had watched the prophecy, over 5000km away in Kenya. The love returned between them and the affection was completely restored. The voice of confusion was gone and in its place a voice of peace came and told him to look for his wedding ring and put it back on. He did this and within a very short time, his wife informed him that she was pregnant. Not only that, he started having awesome breakthrough in his business after the prophecy and deliverance.

 

His advice was to all married couples: “You are because I am and I am because you are. Where you are weak, I am strong and where I am weak, you are strong. Divorce is not the solution. Deliverance is the answer!”

 

SHAMEFUL SACRIFICE EXPOSED

Last week, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied that there was someone in the congregation whom a friend had deceived to do a money ritual. A young man, John Otoera confirmed the prophecy. He confessed that a friend had told him that he knew someone very powerful who could help them to get rich. Intrigued, he decided to follow his friend to meet the powerful man. When they got there, the man asked him if ‘he was ready’ to which John replied, “Yes”, not knowing what this really meant. He was told he needed to pay something. They returned later to the place and the man became more specific, telling him that he needed to give his mum. He had prepared a cloth which John was supposed to place on his mum’s bed and call her name three times after she had slept on the bed and that would be the end of her. John left without the cloth, his conscience disturbing him as he could not imagine sacrificing his dear mother.

Life after that became a living nightmare. He started having horrible dreams of threats and attacks. His friend kept calling him asking what was wrong with him and he could not concentrate on anything. After the Spirit of God located him at The SCOAN and he confessed, John felt peace and calmness. Now, he can sleep peacefully and his friend no longer calls him. He thanked God for His mercy and favour upon his life. Prince Daniel Aiewekhoe, John’s employer was equally in the church when the prophecy was given. He joined John to thank God, testifying that John is evidently a changed man since the prophecy and deliverance.

 

URGE FOR ANIMALS STUBBED OUT

Bestiality can be as pervasive as it is beastly and Mr Bitrus learned it the hard way. It all started way back when he was a very young boy. When everyone in his household had gone to the market on a market day, he would be the one to stay and take care of the home. One such day, home alone, he saw a duck fowl and an evil thought crossed his mind to make love with it. Since that time, nothing attracted him more than animals. The urge was so severe that it ruined his life; it gave him the spirit of lust and was jumping from one woman to another. So chronic was the urge that a point came when he considered marriage as a solution. It was never to be and he ended up leaving one marriage after another until he married his current third wife. After some time, he told her to leave and proposed to marry a fourth wife.

 

BITRUS

MR. BITRUS & FAMILY

He eventually decided to come to the Arena of Liberty. By God’s infinite mercy, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied about a man in the congregation who satisfied himself by sleeping with animals. Shocked that his long-kept secret had been exposed, he walked to the altar to confirm the prophecy. The man of God further prophesied that Mr Bitrus also had a son suffering from the same affliction. The prophecy was welcomed by cries of desperation from his wife who confirmed everything the man of God had said to be true. Both he and his wife received their deliverance. His son was also called from the village where he had been living and received his freedom from the appalling evil spirit.

 

The service closed with the ministration of the New Anointing Water for all who were present both inside the church and outside in the overflow canopies during which many more souls were saved!
