Sunday, 14th December, 2014 was a day that witnessed an outpouring of the Spirit and the Word at the Sunday Service of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations. The entire congregation both those within the main auditorium and those in the overflows all partook of the presence of Heaven even as the ever-energetic and inspiring choir kept all hearts engaged with God.
According to the man of God, the almighty God is Spirit and therefore must be worshipped in spirit and in truth, otherwise, one is merely wasting his or her energy. In other words, there must be a deliberate and passionate longing within the spirit and heart of man for God whenever he worships his or her Creator. It means that, God looks beyond the words we speak but focuses more on the depth of our hearts and spirit: “If I stand here to preach the Word, if it is not according to God’s Spirit, it is nothing. Whatever I say in prayer, if it is not according to God’s Spirit, it is nothing. If you speak words in prayer, if it is not according to the Spirit, it is not according to the truth of God’s Word. It means it is nothing, idle and meaningless”.
Speaking further, the man of God explained that the power of God moves only when the Word and the Spirit unite. “God’s power here cannot move without the Word and the Spirit to bring about healing. You need God’s Word and God’s Spirit to bring about healing, salvation and whatever we are talking about. God’s power working through His Word and His Spirit brings about whatever we desire from God”.
Meditating on the Word of God, according to the man of God, is another way of becoming a part of the Word so that our spirits act on it for the release of God’s power: “The more you think about the Word you read, the more your spirit acts upon the Word and when the spirit acts upon the Word, the Word becomes part of you. The Word has not yet become a part of you when your spirit has not yet acted upon it”. On the mystery of faith, the man of God said that we can only find faith when we pay attention to God and not by stressing ourselves, sleeping in the church or doing other things: “Now, you don’t need to cry or lament over faith, that you don’t have faith. How will you have faith? I need to sleep in the church; I need to sleep in the bush. No. If you pay attention to God, you will find that faith comes naturally”.
Concluding, Prophet T.B. Joshua encouraged Christians on the need to guard their hearts, observing that the heart is the communication contact point with the Holy Spirit, hence, we have to be on our guard to ensure that we do not lose the battle which is fought in the heart: “The right battle is in the heart. When you fail in your heart, you fail all. Your heart is Heaven, if you are a child of God. What you decree here has been decreed in your heart, if you are a child of God. Before I say, “Be healed”, the person has been healed in my heart. If I don’t see the person healed, I will not open my mouth to say, “Be healed”… The bank of miracles is in Heaven. Take care of your heart. It is either your heart is Heaven or hell. When your heart is a dwelling place for God, it becomes Heaven”.



Earlier, Evangelist Ruth in her message titled, Love God Above All, said that many of us today think we can earn God’s favour by our good works however Christianity is not a religion but a relationship. She further explained that God will not heal, bless or deliver you because of who you are or where you have come from; He will only meet you when you obey what He told you to do by His Spirit, based on His Word. She encouraged Christians by assuring them that there is hope and that the greatest miracle we need is a relationship with Jesus. She said: “Jesus is neither looking at our credentials nor personal efforts but our hearts. To love God truly is to do His will, not our own. Before giving him the commission to follow in His footsteps, Jesus asked Peter one of the most significant and penetrating, in fact, one of the most dangerous questions ever asked, ‘Do you love me?’ He did this because He knew that serving the Lord is a thing of the mind. The highest motive for serving God is the desire to please Him. There were perhaps many more qualified than Peter – more educated, more knowledgeable, more experienced – yet Jesus saw in Peter a willing servant – one who would obey His instruction. Obedience is the only proof of our faith in God”.

In confirmation of HIS mighty presence at The SCOAN, The Arena of Liberty, more and more testimonies continue to pour in to the glory of His name.
A family of doctors, Dr and Dr Mrs Benjamin Akhihwu, found themselves facing the unimaginable – they were unable to enlarge their family as a result of their medically unsolvable problem of miscarriages. For eight years, at the 20th week of every pregnancy, Dr Mrs Akihwu would have a nightmare which would result in miscarriage. Doctors examined her and found her womb was too weak to have another child. She went for an operation and almost died due to a terrible mistake.



They decided to come to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water and soon after ministering it in prayer, Dr Mrs Akihwu became pregnant. During her 15th month of pregnancy, she began to see Prophet T.B. Joshua in her dreams, praying for and reassuring her. In her 20th month, the normal attack came but this time, God used the image of Prophet T.B. Joshua defeat the evil spirit in her dream.
Overjoyed to have overcome, she went to the US for her delivery. Holding her newborn bouncing baby boy in her arms for the first time, she was given the alarming news that the baby had jaundice. Never flinching, she took her Anointing Water, ministered it to her baby in prayer and laid him down to sleep. In the morning, her baby awoke completely healed and free from jaundice. The proud parents named the baby Christopher, calling him God’s gift to them. To date, they continue to minister the Anointing Water over their family in prayer, as well as in their clinic to those who would believe. Advising all parents around the world, Dr and Dr Mrs Akihwu encouraged them to hold fast to Jesus Christ, the Giver of all life.
Imagine working for 10 years in the same profession without any advancement, facing mockery from fellow colleagues as they advance and you stand still. Such was the case for Mrs Batho Rampana, a nurse from Botswana.



One fateful day, she came across Emmanuel TV with her husband and as they watched, they saw testimonies which convinced them that all she needed was the Anointing Water. They came to The SCOAN, received the Anointing Water, returned to their country and began ministering the Anointing Water in prayer, believing God to make a way through the wilderness of her career.
Soon after, the Ministry of Health announced a vacancy for Chief Nursing Superintendent – a position far higher than the one she currently held. Her colleagues made jest of her, reminding her that the position only accepted candidates who had worked for 20 years and she was only in her 10th. Confident that nothing is impossible for God to do, she ministered her Anointing Water and went for the interview.
To the shock of everyone, the Ministry of Health called her back after the interview and appointed her as Chief Nursing Superintendent. She was later equally appointed as matron for 18 facilities in her country. Her life has changed as she now attends meetings and seminars with top officials in her profession as well as dignitaries and government officials in her country. She advised all to put their trust in God as He alone makes impossibilities possible.
After a recurrent experience of shortness of breath and general body weakness, Ms Freda Agana from Ghana visited the doctor and was deeply troubled when diagnosed with a weak heart valve and stomach ulcer. The condition greatly affected her job, as every two weeks, she was forced to go back to the hospital for treatment. Her



disappointment deepened as the effect of each treatment wore off and she realised that her condition remained the same.
She was introduced to the Anointing Water and with faith, visited The SCOAN and was privileged to receive her own bottle. Returning to Ghana, she began ministering the Anointing Water over her entire body, believing that the name of Jesus Christ would work in her health. To her great excitement, she experienced an instant relief in her body. She suddenly realised that all the symptoms were gone and she was experiencing good health! Highly motivated, she went back to the hospital for a test and all reports proved that her sickness was gone.
Rejoicing in the Lord, she gladly showed clear evidence through the medical reports confirmed by the doctor. She is certified free from the shackles of infirmity. Still glowing with joy, she encouraged the congregation to believe in Jesus Christ and trust Him at all times in whatever situation that comes their way.
Mrs Patrick had been rejoicing in the joys of pregnancy in 2002 when a sudden difficulty threatened to change her countenance. Complications arose and she was diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy. An emergency operation was undertaken and a ruptured fallopian tube had to be cut. Her one year old marriage faced great challenges in the following years. They were able to deliver one child successfully but an ectopic pregnancy developed five years after, rupturing her fallopian tube.
As a minister of God, her husband, Pastor Patrick prayed and hoped on God for an answer. One day, he was introduced to The SCOAN where he received the Anointing Water. He prayed and ministered it on his wife in Jesus’ name. Just a few months later, his wife became pregnant. To his amazement and that of the doctors who had performed his wife’s operations, the baby grew to nine months and was delivered safely, despite the absence of fallopian tubes!



Pastor Patrick gladly showed the medical reports. The first one stated that both fallopian tubes had been cut off; the second stated that his wife was 7 months pregnant! He advised the church not to constantly focus on the problem but the possibilities of what God could do! God is infinite and there is nothing impossible with God! Mrs Patrick was short of words as she exclaimed, “The Lord has restored what was lost through this child He has given me. Don’t lose hope; the Lord shall also identify you through the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name”.
As Prince Wilson, a Nigerian based in South Africa watched his young daughter grow; he noticed several strange behaviours and addictions take hold of her. She first started eating sand and then sniffing petrol. The occurrences became frequent and then constant and he and his wife were at a loss as to how to help their child break those habits. Their sweet, innocent baby also became aggressive to other children of her age and began to hate her parents.



One day in South Africa, they started watching Emmanuel TV and during the mass prayer, as Prophet T.B. Joshua started praying, Prince Wilson’s daughter suddenly began to manifest. From that moment, he knew she needed deliverance.
He brought her all the way from South Africa to attend The SCOAN Live Sunday Service. To his great relief, she was located by God through Prophet T.B. Joshua and an amazing deliverance was wrought in her life in Jesus’ name. As the prophet prayed, the evil spirit confessed that it was a queen from the river, sent to destroy the family and their future. It was cast out by the name of Jesus Christ and the prophet introduced the little girl to her father as a new child in Christ Jesus.
Prince Wilson returned to South Africa with his daughter after the prayer and a new chapter in their lives unfolded. Testifying in the church, Prince Wilson joyfully explained how the addictions have been broken, the anger has been swallowed up by peace and hatred destroyed by the love of God. His daughter behaves completely like a normal child and even helps to take care of her younger ones. There is now peace in the family and his career and status have even taken a new turn. He happily showed off photos of his family, encouraging every parent to train their children in the way of the Lord and run to Him with every challenge and concern. He is truly God, our Father.
There is nothing impossible before God, the Creator of Heaven and earth. No matter your challenges, you too can be set free if you believe. Emmanuel!

The Sunday Service on December 7, 2014 at The SCOAN took off on an inspiring note with the choir’s soul-moving deliveries. Like forerunners, their uplifting praise and worship songs prepared the atmosphere for the digestion of the undiluted Word of God. Even the overflows were filled to the brim to cater to the need of those who could not make it to the main gallery to experience God’s consistent and powerful presence at The SCOAN.



The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, spoke on The Relationship between the Truth and the Spirit. Using the Book of John 4:24 and 14: 26 as scriptural references, he urged Christians to imbibe the gift of the Spirit which God Himself sent to them to help them in all their endeavours: “‘But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything…’ – how to sit, stand, greet, look in the name of Jesus”. Speaking further, he admonished them to pay more attention to the Spirit rather than to material things of the world observing that since it is the Spirit that creates the materials, clamouring for the material was mere vanity upon vanity: Why should we worship materials then? Even you are a material. You are the greatest material, the greatest product. The Word of God is a Spirit, creates material things. Why do you believe that by building cathedral for God you are a child of God? Why should you believe that once you are a president of a nation if you enter a church they should give you the best seat? You are a material. Vanity upon vanity all is vanity”.

Concluding, the man of God urged Christians to keep faith in God and believe that He is reliable: You have seen God working in the Spirit, you have seen things happening, and you have seen the power of God at work. If you have seen that God is reliable, trust Him; that is faith. I want to pray with you. If there is anyone who is still outside faith in God, I restore your faith; let your faith be restored! Begin to trust God. No one can teach you that trust; it just comes naturally, spontaneously. It is natural; you can’t get it or be taught it”.

Earlier in the service, Evangelist Yinka had blessed the hearts of the congregation and viewers worldwide with a message titled, I Plead Guilty in which she reminded us of the need to approach God in humility and simplicity of heart, knowing that God receives repentant souls.



“When the children of God begin to experience the products of sin in their lives, rather than pointing fingers at their fellow brothers as being the cause of their affliction, they look inward in order to rediscover their route in God. They repent and repair; I mean they amend or change their ways and pray to God for reinstatement. The Bible says God is always ready to reinstate His people, who come to Him in humility and repentance, to their right position in His glory”.


Just as God’s mercies endure forever, the testimonies He has put on the lips of His children continue to increase. The following testimonies are a confirmation of the mighty works of God at The SCOAN. As you read, may God locate you with your own testimonies in Jesus’ name. Amen.




The problem that brought Mrs. Favour Amorro from Rivers, Nigeria to The SCOAN was cancer of the arms. When she got married, her problems started when there was no peace in their marriage and Her frustration led her to go clubbing. One day, a friend she met at the club who had tattoos, convinced her to get tattoos as well in the name of fashion. She agreed and had six done. In a dream, she was told that it was not for fashion but rather her initiation into the kingdom of darkness. She found herself going to oceans, eating strange food and was the victim of different attacks and harassments in her dreams affecting her spiritual and physical life. She returned to the tattoo man to have them removed and he used a chemical to scratch the tattoos off her. However, instead of the tattoos to disappear, each of them became a cancerous wound on her arms. The doctors had no solution to or explanation of the open sores apart from offering drugs and injections. Seeing her sorry plight, a friend advised her to go to The SCOAN to seek the mercy of God. Agreeing, she came and received the Anointing Water which she ministered all over her body immediately. In no time at all, the wounds had been completely healed and the sores covered up.



Since then, she can wash, cook and bathe without any pain or problem. She no longer has any pain where the wounds were neither is she pursued by the satanic kingdom that had tried to ensnare and destroy her. She advised that people should be wary of the devil’s schemes by being in constant prayer to God Almighty, our Saviour and Redeemer.



A few years ago, Mr Paul Kamara fell sick and was taken to hospital. The doctors tested him and said he had Hepatitis B which has no cure. The next place for him was the grave and at 14 years this was a terrifying prospect. He was still so young, had so much to offer and had so much yet to accomplish. He lost concentration and this seriously affected his performance and grades. His parents introduced him to Emmanuel TV and they got the Anointing Water for him which he began to minister to himself.



It was exam time for Paul, a period in which he would usually feel dizzy, lack concentration and not do well at all. But this time, he was pleasantly surprised that unlike before he was physically strong and the exams went well. After ministering the Anointing Water and discovering that he no longer had the dizzy feelings he used to, he went to the doctors for a check-up and to his and the doctor’s surprise, he was found negative to Hepatitis B – there were no signs of Hepatitis B in his system! He was healed in the name of Jesus Christ, through the Anointing Water. He advises the world to look at the Anointing Water as a medium God uses to heal, bless and deliver His people.


Adejare Adedeji applied to several institutions for a Master’s degree but was denied despite having good grades to boast of.  Frustrated, he came to The SCOAN for solution and received the Anointing Water. He took it home and ministered it earnestly; praying concerning his future and asking that God’s mercy should speak for him.



Soon after, he received an acceptance letter from a University in Toronto, Canada. He came showing that he had all he needed to commence his further education overseas, displaying his letter of acceptance, flight ticket and visa. He advised Christians to believe that the Anointing Water is our connection to Jesus Christ, our Provider.


Mrs. Winifred Jonathan gave her testimony in tears of joy as she recalled the many name- callings and tribulations she had endured in her eight years battle with barrenness. People had criticized her for staying with her husband and many others took her from one place to another for different solutions, bathing her in rivers and all other kinds of supposed solutions but she kept believing that one day,



God would do His wonders in her life. Then that one day came; her mother who lived in the USA told her to come to The SCOAN to receive the Anointing Water. She agreed and when her mother came to visit her, they went together and received the Anointing Water. Sometime later, she was feeling strange and woke up in the night several times. She did a home pregnancy test and she discovered that she was pregnant! In the auditorium, she held her beautiful baby to show the whole world what God has done for her. We just need to see the faithfulness and trustworthiness of God and our faith will come spontaneously.


Mr. Godwin Akanhu from Abia State, Nigeria, received words of prophecy when he and his wife visited The SCOAN. They came due to the loss of their only child after six years of marriage. When their daughter became sick, they took her to many hospitals and even visited a spiritualist. Their daughter was eight months old when she died. In grief, they decided to come to The SCOAN and that was when Prophet T.B. Joshua told them that he saw them in a cage, a revelation which Mr Akanhu immediately confirmed while explaining their woes.



They received prayer and were further comforted when they received prophecy of a baby to come. After two weeks, she had conceived and today they are parents of a beautiful baby. To God be the glory!


The problems of low sperm count and ovarian cyst for Mr. & Mrs. Anand from India, respectively, made child-bearing a big challenge to their faith. During those hard times, Mr. Anand decided to travel to The SCOAN where he had seen many with the same problem receive solutions.



He visited The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water to minister to himself and his wife. She soon became pregnant and despite the doctors being critical, the pregnancy went smoothly. Mrs. Anand continued ministering the Anointing Water throughout her pregnancy. The doctors were still worried, unsure if she and the baby would survive due to her seemingly weak state. To the doctors’ surprise and relief – with ease, she gave birth to a very healthy baby boy. They travelled all the way from India to The SCOAN Lagos, Nigeria, to give their testimony of the grace and gift of God.


When Mr Tachinda was 10 years old, his grandfather took him to his shrine. He was initiated for one week where he had to swallow the tongue of a chicken every day and bathe in the river as part of the process. He began stealing from his father and often ran away from school but this was only the beginning of the germination of the foul seed which had been planted in his life. He started clubbing and meeting bad gangs who introduced him to taking drugs and how to dupe people (defraud people of money). Advancing in his practises, he got tattoos done as directed by the evil spirits. One was of the mermaid he would sleep with in his dreams; another was a cobra that would appear to him when he was fighting so that no one could defeat him. He also had tattoos of a tiger on his body as well. He saw a tiger physically in his village and in a dream he was told the tiger was his grandfather. After doing this, came the power to command people who would comply without hesitation. He had agents working for him all over the world giving him information to help him steal people’s identities and sell their properties. The agents would provide all he needed including false passports so that people would believe that he was who he said he was.



He become fed up with life however as after everything, he ended up with nothing. On the outside, he would mix with the rich but inside he was empty, constantly tormented in dreams by those whom he had duped. He came to The SCOAN with a plan to get the Anointing Water to enhance his duping career! That was how the Lord Jesus Christ arrested him in the power of the Holy Spirit, delivering him from the evil spirits which had used him to defraud thousands across the globe. Since then, duping is no longer a part of him. He no longer sees the evil woman which had tormented him in his dreams. He publicly renounced the life of stealing, fornication and all fraudulent ways advising all still in the bondage of the evil one to look to Jesus Christ for salvation.

Sunday November 30, 2014 was a symbolic day as it marked the end of the eleventh month of the year. As such, the Sunday Service at The SCOAN held with all the frills of heavenly joy. The Spirit-filled congregation danced to the melodies emanating from the choir which has always lived up to the musical expectations of the entire church. Their pieces and the energy with which they are rendered touched hearts and created the right mood for the Spirit of God to swing into action. Again, it was another massive turn-out as the congregation, both those within the main church auditorium and those in all the overflows, came in the hope of having an encounter with God.

Delivering a message titled “THE WORD AND THE SPIRIT MUST JOIN”, the man of God Prophet T.B. Joshua DADDYhighlighted the connection between constant prayer and the fulfilment of our wishes and desires. He explained that the Faith Bracelet was therefore meant to help us cement the unity between the word and our hearts. The man of God also encouraged Christians to meditate on the Word always stressing that it can shape their characters and conducts: “A break in prayer is a break in faith. We are to pray all the time. Faith counts in whatever we do. Are you sleeping or looking? Faith counts.  If the Word dominates your mouth, one day it will pay off. The heart will bring it to fulfilment. We all know when the Word dominates our hearts, it influences our conduct and behaviour. The Faith Bracelet will help you to think about what you read in the Bible”.

According to the man of God, the heart is synonymous with the spirit. This means that the Word will only become very productive if we allow it to germinate on the fertile soils of our hearts. He observed that, the more we allow it to dominate our mouth and hearts, the more it will pay off. Quoting John 6:63 – which says: “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life,” the man of God admonished that failure, refusal or inability to speak from the heart or spirit amounts to nothing: “If the Word is not from your heart and you say, ‘In Jesus’ name’, you are speaking to yourself. You are calling a certain man called Jesus on earth, not Jesus of Nazareth we know”.


Analysing the functions of both the Word and the Spirit, Prophet T.B. Joshua observed that, despite the varying roles they play, both still had to be united or joined to be able to make positive impact on the life of a person. He re-emphasised the role of the Faith Bracelet in ensuring that the joining of the word and spirit for impact is attained: “There are two functions – God’s Word refreshes our mind; God’s Spirit renews our strength. These two must join – the Word and the Spirit. if not, the Word goes nowhere. The Word and the Spirit must join. The Spirit will be released to the degree we stand in reverence or honour of God’s Word. So, what is the function of the Faith Bracelet? To dominate your mouth. When the Word dominates your mouth, one day, it will pay off and dominate your heart”.


On how to read the Holy Bible, the man of God revealed that it has to be done slowly and meditatively, explaining that the Spirit of God is a gentle spirit and therefore is not in a hurry: “You must read your Bible slowly. You may understand the language but it does not mean you understand the Word – because it is not history. You may understand all the grammar, language and idioms as a professor or educated person but that does not mean you know the meaning of what you are reading. Read it slowly first because the Spirit of God is a gentle Spirit. If you want to rush and finish the Bible, you are deceiving yourself. You must read it slowly, attentively and repeatedly”.


And on where to read in the Bible, the man of God taught that it is God that gives direction through the Holy Spirit and as such, Christians are expected to precede their Bible reading with prayer so that they may be given direction: “Many ask, ‘Where should I read in the Bible, as a Christian? Do I start from Genesis, Matthew or Revelation?’ You must first pray before you open your Bible. Pray for God to direct you where to go and where to start. After prayer, you can open your Bible”.


Concluding, the man of God urged Christians to make the most judicious use of the forthcoming New Year as a time to suffuse themselves in the Word of God: “There is no better way to celebrate the upcoming New Year than to have God’s Word in your heart. Christians today don’t have a basic knowledge of God. It’s like a student who did not learn ABC but now wanted to write someone’s name. It can never be possible”.

Earlier on, the service began with a powerful message from EVELYN JOSHUAEvangelist Evelyn Joshua titled ‘Jesus Christ, The Life Coach’. In the message, Evangelist Evelyn spoke on the need to involve God in each step of one’s journey through life, stressing that when you make Jesus Christ your Boss, you will be connected to the One who created you and thus enjoy His peace, success and contentment.

“Every human has a hunger to know He who created him or her; we all desire to experience God in a unique way,” she stressed. “Until you experience God, there would be dissatisfaction in your life.” She further encouraged the congregants, “If you know that God will rescue you in the future, you will hold steady, trust Him and not listen to the temptation to act out of character.” She concluded by advising everyone to learn from the lifestyle of Jesus Christ – ‘Our Life Coach’.





The wonderful works of God abound at The SCOAN. He has continued confirm His mighty presence here. Multitudes are being healed of different ailments and loosed from all forms of chains to the glory of His name. The following testimonies will kindle your hope to realise that no matter the situation, God is more than up to the task if only you would have faith. As you read, may your testimony meet you as soon as possible, in Jesus’ name. Amen!



Stacey woke up once again in a cold sweat. The intensity of the nightmares seemed to be increasing. Dark demonic beings had been a constant nocturnal companion for the young American, ever since she was sexually molested at a tender age.STACEY


The tormenting, devilish creatures would abuse her at night, forcefully sleeping with her. The nightmare went beyond the night as growing up under such torment soon rippled into relationship challenges. A tumultuous first marriage ended in separation as the evil attacks destroyed all love and affection from the relationship. With a dwindling career and frustration meeting her every step, Mrs Ifezue started seeking for Divine intervention.


A random YouTube search remarkably led her to discover the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua. As she watched clip after clip of deliverance in the name of Jesus Christ, realization dawned – this was what she needed. Resolving to make the trip from New York to Lagos, she visited The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water. A ministration of the Anointing Water proved to be a catalyst for an incredible change! The demons steadily started decreasing their visitations until they simply stopped coming! Thereafter, Stacey’s business started to boom and a new relationship was forged which resulted in a brand new marriage! Indeed, the evidence of Jesus Christ is life changed!




The elderly Indian lady limped forward towards her television. She was thousands of kilometres away from Nigeria and couldn’t even speak English but faith saw beyond these barriers. Touching the tiny screen as Prophet T.B. Joshua was offering prayer, the supernatural power of God literally pulsated through her body!MRS KOVVADA JESSICA


Mrs Kovvada Jessica, a senior nurse by profession, was in India when she discovered Emmanuel TV on the internet. Her mother, who had fractured her hip in a horrific accident, was on the sickbed at the time for over one year. Strengthened in faith by the miraculous clips she watched on Emmanuel TV, she introduced her mother to the channel and encouraged her to pray along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. As the prayer point, ‘Dry bones – rise again’ was being offered, she touched the screen and received instant healing, able to walk freely for the first time in one year.


As Jessica’s love for Emmanuel TV grew, so did the blessings of God. Seeing the Anointing Sticker and the testimonies people shared through it, she decided to take a picture of the Sticker from Emmanuel TV and print it as a point of contact. Placing the photocopied Anointing Sticker on her motorbike, she prayed to God for Divine protection. Previously, Mrs Kovvada had frequent accidents and injuries through using the motorbike. However, after placing the Anointing Sticker on it, she testified that she has had no more accidents and her health has been miraculously rejuvenated.


The testimonies through her interaction with Emmanuel TV are far too numerous to mention. Where previously there were hatred and jealousy in her workplace, love and promotion have taken their place. Scores of people have prayed with the Anointing Sticker she keeps as a constant companion in her pocket, including a work colleague who reconciled with her estranged husband and children after the prayer.


Just imagine – if a lady in faraway India could demonstrate such faith and receive so many blessings merely through watching Emmanuel TV, what is stopping you from stepping out in faith as you are watching right now and receiving your own testimony, in Jesus’ name!




DR RICHARD URAMADr Richard Urama was frustrated. His favourite foods had literally been banned by medical health professionals, who warned him he would have to watch his diet for the rest of his life due to a sudden onset of high cholesterol.


However, even after five years of regular tablet-taking to regulate his cholesterol, alongside a strict and challenging diet regime, the cholesterol level was still surprisingly high, making doctors to warn that this could result in a heart attack if he wasn’t careful.


The ailment further affected his government work, which was already strenuous enough. However, after being introduced to Emmanuel TV by a work colleague, Dr Urama was shocked to behold how God’s power was eradicating even far more serious ailments than his own in the instant. He decided to visit The SCOAN and was among those privileged that day to receive the Anointing Water.


The moment he ministered the Anointing Water, Dr Urama described a light sensation that rapidly encompassed his entire body. Convinced beyond all doubt that a miracle had taken place, he immediately returned to his choice culinary dishes and resumed his normal diet. Several months later, after witnessing no side effects whatsoever, he decided to revisit the hospital that had diagnosed him. The levels of his cholesterol had completely normalized, reducing from 244 to 183!




“Go and marry another wife”, she tearfully pleaded with her husband. The shame and scorn were simply too much for her to bear. After 14 years of childlessness, Anthonia Udeh was at a point where hope seemed too distant to grasp.ANTHONIA UDEH


The doctors had diagnosed tubal blockage, coupled with irregular menstruation. The Nigerians, who reside in the Democratic Republic of Congo, had exhausted all medical options without any sign of fruitfulness. Anthonia often cried herself to sleep, wondering if her pleas were even reaching God. However, even after urging her husband to marry another woman in order for the family name to continue, he refused, steadfastly urging her to trust in God and hold onto hope.


As the search for solution continued, Mr & Mrs Udeh encountered Emmanuel TV while browsing channels in DRC. Amazed that the miracles they saw unfolding before their eyes were happening in their homeland of Nigeria, Mrs Udeh resolved immediately to visit The SCOAN. The very month she visited The SCOAN and received Anointing Water was the very month she fell pregnant! One year down the line, she presented baby Marvellous Emmanuel Chidiebere to The SCOAN congregation, declaring him a child God had gifted the joyous couple from above. She advised barren women never to give up faith in God and seek alternatives but believe that God’s time is the best and at His perfect time, He would wipe their tears of barrenness away.




“If I was not brought up in a Christian home, I probably would have undergone a sex change,” Jorine Venhuizen, a visitor from Holland explained to The SCOAN congregation.JORINE VENHUIZEN


From a very young age, Jorine felt comfortable moving with males and preferred male-dominated activities and environments. Her continual boyish tendencies were also accompanied by heavy depression and terrible, tormenting nightmares where she was oftentimes stabbed or shot.


The negative thoughts venomously whispering in her heart were so severe that suicide seemed the best option as Jorine felt both confused and condemned. To make matters worse, aggressive acne covered almost the entirety of her face, pushing the young Dutch lady to literally loathe her appearance.


Even after managing to get married, there was no genuine affection or love as it felt more like two males fighting for dominance in the house. After being introduced to The SCOAN, Jorine decided to visit from Holland. Although she received prayer, she kept silent about her secret masculine desires, even after being counselled to confess ‘everything’ before God.


On a subsequent visit, she realised that total deliverance and complete confession went hand-in-hand and openly confessed the real nature of her challenges. After exposing the destructive demon, it had no hiding place and was forcefully revealed when Wise Man Harry prayed for her at the Prayer Line.


After receiving deliverance, everything about Jorine has changed. For the first time in 34 years, she saw herself as a female, began enjoying her marital relationship and saw the painful, itchy acne dry up and disappear within a short period. As Prophet T.B. Joshua says, “Sin brings fear; confession brings freedom.” Thank You, Jesus Christ!


Sunday November 23, 2014 was another great day to witness the manifestation of God’s power at the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations. As usual the church auditorium was filled to the brim with all the overflows surging with a multitude of people who came to tap from the flowing glory of God. The choir, with their inspiring renditions created the right atmosphere for the power and presence of God to radiate all corners of the church and beyond.

The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua delivered a short but very deep and incisive message, emphasising that the Word of God is unquantifiable and useful for the spiritual growth of man. No matter how small or short, the Word of God can perform wonders. He said that when a ministry is led by the Holy Spirit, the apostolic gifts will be exercised. Indeed, there is no other source of connecting with God other than through the power of faith. And Prophet T.B. Joshua said, “When you have faith, you would see beyond the situation at hand”. He saluted the faith of the congregants, especially foreigners who left their various countries to visit The SCOAN.



Prophet T.B. Joshua in furtherance of exercising the apostolic gifts moved to the Prayer Line where he said he had to go to attend to the sick in fulfilment of the promises of God to His people – “I am the Lord that healeth thee…I sent my Word and healed your disease…”. At the Prayer Line, the man of God laid hands on many sick and afflicted and to the glory of God, they received their healing and deliverance instantly.

Wise Man Christopher had earlier on delved into the scripture to give a very thoughtful message titled God’s Response. Knowing that the entire universe is embroiled in one anarchy or the other, Christians themselves are not free from the unpleasantness of certain ugly and discouraging situations that require God’s intervention. But Wise Man Christopher admonishes Christians not to think that God isn’t there: God does not delay to take quick action when His children are passing through life threatening situations orchestrated by satan and his agents. This is because God knows that if He delays to take quick action when His children are passing through life threatening situations orchestrated by satan and his agents, then, Christianity in this world would be eradicated. And what use would Christ’s victory over satan on the Cross of Calvary be to us – God’s children”?

Citing the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, he urged the congregation to always hand over their challenges or situations unto God, explaining that, God responds when Christians see their challenges as His: “When Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego were facing hard times orchestrated by satan and his agents, they saw their situation as a mere challenge to God and that was why they did not instruct God which way to go. They simply left all to God and let Him glorify His name. That is, they simply left all to God and let Him respond to their situation. To them, responding to their situation themselves or asking God for specific needs would amount to limiting Him to certain answers. So, they said nothing in defense of themselves but simply left it to God to establish their integrity. God, in whom they trusted, rescued them and truly preserved their lives by a miracle.



Concluding, Wise Man Christopher implored the congregation to increase their faith by remaining holy and making the word of God their best companion through meditation: “How do you increase your faith? To increase your faith, please, keep your purity. To keep your purity, meditate on God’s Word day and night and do what the Word says. When you meditate on God’s Word day and night and do what the Word says, whatever you do will prosper”.


In further confirmation of His mighty presence at The SCOAN, many people have continued to testify to the goodness of God in their lives through the man of God and his ministry, The SCOAN. The following testimonies will undoubtedly inspire you to realise that there is no affliction or sickness that is beyond God. God can do everything and this is evident at The SCOAN. As you read, may you give your own testimony as soon as possible to the glory of God in Jesus’ name. Amen!


Mr. Frankie Taylor, a Ghanaian radio presenter, actor and movie producer is back again to testify to what God has continued to do in his life, reminding us that God honours those who honour Him. After 15 years of stagnation, he visited The SCOAN where he and his wife received a prophecy and deliverance at the Prayer Line in the power of the Holy Ghost.

Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke directly to Mrs. Princess Taylor about a dark time in her life when she attempted to take her life due to marriage problems. The prophet also spoke about the way and manner both partners met and she confirmed it instantly. After the prophecy, the marriage was transformed in a way that positively affected every area of their lives; her husband’s media career took off in a big way after 15 years of no recognition.

Since then, awards have kept pouring in as he was nominated and selected for so many different titles in his media career, bringing him the breakthrough he had been longing for. Among others, ‘Best Media Promoter Of The Year, 2014’ and ‘Best Radio Personality Of The Year, 2014’ were awarded to him. The awards were on a voting basis, for which his competitors did a lot of campaigning, but he did none at all. When asked why he said: “The God of Prophet T.B. Joshua will campaign for me!”



Holding his award proudly for the glory of God, he advised those listening to him: “Christ dwells in our hearts through faith; faith is the channel through which the anointing flows. Speaking to those in his profession, especially to his fellow Ghanaians, he implored them to stop spreading lies about true men of God such as Prophet T.B. Joshua, stating that “Lies can never triumph over truth.”


Deaconess Odunayo was plagued by a terrible curse of persistent armed robbery. Anytime she left her house or shop, they would be burgled and her valuable items stolen. This continued for 15 years. Frustrated, she was advised to consult a witchdoctor. Even though she was a deacon in her church, she felt helpless and went to collect a charm for protection. After placing the charm in her house, the problem worsened severely. Armed robbers began coming when she was still present in the house; at one point, they even woke her up in her bedroom and threatened to rape her.

When all hope seemed lost and with the majority of her valuable and precious possessions in the hands of criminals, she was advised to visit The SCOAN to seek the face of God. She received the Anointing Water and Stickers and with them, came a great surge of hope. From the moment she ministered the Anointing Water and placed the Anointing Stickers in her house and shop, no armed robber entered her home or disturbed her peace again. Testifying to the total transformation, she said that her neighbours even began to ask her permission before cutting any vegetables from her garden or trees!

Advising viewers via Emmanuel TV, she said, “God has a way of solving your problem. Trust Him – He will solve yours as He did mine”.




Miss Angela Tanko suffered from ceased menstruation for six long years. As a young woman not yet married, her future outlook was distressed by the sad thought that she could never marry or have children. A visit to The SCOAN changed the course of her life forever. During The SCOAN Live Sunday Service last week, she received a prophetic message from Prophet T.B. Joshua that she suffered from ceased menstruation. He also revealed that there was a man she had not forgiven. She confirmed the prophecy immediately and accepted the prophet’s instruction to offer forgiveness as she was told that if she did not forgive, she would not move forward. Prophet T.B. Joshua then prayed for her and she began to feel a strange sensation. Rushing to the restroom, she discovered that her ceased menstruation had immediately begun to flow! Truly, forgiveness is the bridge to our future. Miss Tanko exclaimed that the moment she spoke the word of forgiveness, she felt peace in her heart and knew she was being renewed.

She advised all viewers to cultivate the habit of forgiveness so that they can also be forgiven. Thank You, Jesus for the power of Your forgiveness!




When Deborah was nine years old, her mother, a diplomat in Togo, was offered a position in the United States of America. Once there, Deborah met a girl in school who introduced her to prostitution. At the age of eleven, she had started sleeping with up to four men in a day. When she was twelve, she was given a fake ID by a friend of hers. The fake ID card presented her as a twenty one year-old and allowed her to enter clubs. She also had a violent temper and would fight students and even teachers in school until she drew their blood. In her dreams, she would see herself wearing a crown. Men would appear to her in her dream and the following day, she would see the same men approach her for prostitution. She slept with married men and destroyed their marriages. She slept with men with money and they lost their money. Because of her behaviour, the officials put her in foster care for two years but she continued with the prostitution. As a result, her mother lost her position and the family was sent back to Togo. As a last resort, her mother brought her to The SCOAN for deliverance. Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her last week and the evil spirit tormenting her life was exposed and expelled by the light of Jesus Christ. Deborah testifies that since her deliverance, she no longer finds herself in the satanic kingdom in her dreams; she has no desire to sleep with men and regrets her former behaviour towards herself, her family and God.



Rejoicing in her daughter’s miraculous deliverance, her mother advised, “Put your faith in God. Nobody can help you – only God.”

Prophet T.B JoshuaThe Sunday Service of November 16, 2014 was symbolic in many dimensions. The radiation of divine inspiration was so intense that the joyous congregation could not but key into the flowing presence of the hosts of Heaven. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua reiterated the church’s affectionate stance regarding the martyrs of faith who ascended in the tragic incident of September 12, 2014. In an emotion-laden tribute, composed by Prophet T.B. Joshua and featuring Kimmy Skota, the man of God celebrated the martyrs of faith for their transition to eternal glory. Wearing a white scarf with the inscription “IN HONOUR OF THE MARTYRS OF FAITH”, the man of God urged the congregation to remain steadfast in their display of love and concern for the victims and their families: TRIBUTERemember your duty to the martyrs of faith’s relations and victim’s relations; it will go a long way to bless our future. It is a revelation. Caring and loving the martyr’s of faith and victims’ relations is caring for ourselves. So, it is a blessing. Our caring and love towards the martyrs of faith and victims’ relations will go a long way to care for our future. The love and care towards them will reshape our destiny”.

Exhorting the congregation to be wary of satan’s tricky antics, the man of God also admonished them to maintain an unmovable faith in God as that is the only guarantee to their intimacy with God. According to him, the more they think less of themselves, the more their lives are controlled by God: It is not about me, it is just about Jesus. If more of Jesus takes over your life, you will have no control of yourself – He will take control of you. Take more of me give me more of You. More of Him will help you to keep your purity. When you keep your purity, your faith increases. When you are able to keep your purity, your faith increases”. He highlighted the importance of the Faith Bracelet and the urgency as well as the enormity of the Christian’s dire need for Jesus: “What makes us Christian? We are Christian because we live, do and act the word. That is what makes us Christians. When you know how much you need Him indeed, your relationship will be strengthened”.

WM HARRYEarlier in a message titled, “Do Something New”, Wise Man Harry had taken the congregation on an intellectual as well as spiritual excursion into the Word. His teaching was multi-dimensionally edifying as it urged Christians to rethink their conservative and monotonous approach to living. According to him, only those who do things differently are guaranteed of different and great results. If you want to experience something that no one has ever experienced before, you need to do something that no one has ever done before. There is no way we can do something new in our lives without an independent mind. Ezekiel 36:26-27 – “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws”. Many of us today, are mere photocopies. For instance, when you want to dance, you look for the best dancer so that you can copy him. When you want to do business, you move around the market to know the products that are selling most. When you want to pray, you look for the best prayer book, so that you can read the prayer that fits you”. Wise Man Harry observed that most of the mess the world is faced with came as a result of a stereotypical lifestyle in which people just prefer to copy others rather than do things independently. He urged Christians to keep an independent mind if they want to achieve different results and make impact on their generation: “Everyone copies his neighbour. Anyone can be a president but it is God that chooses a president with a difference; I mean, one that becomes a torch bearer. There are many kings and queens today, but only God can raise a king or a queen with a difference. To make a difference in your world, you need an independent mind. An independent mind is a mind that thinks for itself, a mind that is determined to find out the truth from God”. Wise Man Harry concluded by encouraging Christians to rise up to the occasion by thinking independently and position themselves for unprecedented results.

Two weeks ago during the usual Sunday Service, the man of God prophesied to a man, Mr Marthias Ebule about the trouble he was passing through, including court cases and the need to forgive a particular woman from his past. While beckoning on the man during prophecy time, the man of God told him: “There is a court case. How do you handle it? Three times now it was appealed. You should forgive this woman. There is a controversy issue. It has to with a child. For so long, the child has been fatherless”.


Family Reconciliation

In confirmation of the prophecy by the man of God, Mr Mathias Ebule agreed that he had a court case and that there was a controversy over a child. According to him, the child the man of God was referring to was the product of a relationship he had with a woman in the past. He refused to accept the pregnancy and when the lady delivered the baby, he warned his mother and sister not to have anything to do with the child and her mother, while threatening to disown them. Several years later, he came back to his mother’s house in Bayelsa and saw a child eating rice outside the house. He inquired from his mother who the child was but she refused to tell him; so, he asked the child who called his name as her father. He was angry with his mother because he had warned her earlier not to accept the child. He decided to train the child up, not believing that she was his child but just as someone he wanted to help. As the child stayed in his home, she became very stubborn, causing problems and always running from home. As a sign that the prophecy was meant for his redemption and reconciliation, Mr Mathias under the counsel of the man of God apologised to the woman and her daughter as well as his own wife in order to pave the way for peace and progress.


Reconciled after 13 years of Seperation

Reconciled after 13 years of Separation

During the prophecy time in the Sunday Service of November 9, 2014, the man of God prophesied to Mrs Precious Roman about an attack she encountered in a dream where she had an affair with a dog and since then she had been moving with different men. According to the man of God, ever since that attack, she had become insatiable: “You had an encounter with dog in your dream. Since this encounter, you are not content; no man can please you. It is not possible for a man to marry you as a wife. You don’t have choice. The urge is too much, that dog is the cause”.

In confirmation of the prophecy after her deliverance, she narrated how she had left her husband. According to her, she had a fibroid and went to meet her mum for treatment but on her return to Lagos, she couldn’t find her husband. She confirmed that they had been separated for 13 years. But to the glory of God, after the service last Sunday, she received a call, in which the caller identified himself as her ex-husband who left her 13 years ago. He said he had been watching Emmanuel TV and had seen her. The man of God said that he would like to meet them after the service to let them know the mind of God concerning their future relationship. She thanked God for using the man of God to reveal the root cause of her problem. She confessed that since her deliverance, she has been sleeping peacefully like a baby – no more nightmares.

As usual, more and more testimonies have continued to pour in like rivers of waters in confirmation of the mighty works of God through His anointed servant Prophet T.B. Joshua at The SCOAN. The following are some of the awe-inspiring testimonies that will strengthen your faith in God.

A strong believer in the God of T.B. Joshua, Mr Benjamin Ogbodo told the congregation of his daily habit of ministering the Anointing Water over himself, his business and his home before setting off for work. On the fateful day of which he came to testify, he did the same thing he did every morning, not knowing that he was about to see the power of God manifest greatly in his life. Mr Benjamin was going to the main road to meet a customer when armed robbers unleashed an assault on a nearby bank which was transferring money in an armoured vehicle. The bullet fire was like a hailstorm – peppering a policeman and several people around the area but none was closer to the gang men than Mr Benjamin. Hit in his back, he dropped into a gutter yet said he felt no pain and no panic but something spoke to his heart telling him not to move but lie still where he fell. The chaos continued without an intermission and in a flash the robbers mounted on motorbikes made off with the bank’s money and made their getaway. As people began to move around to assess the situation, Mr Benjamin felt strength come into him and he climbed out of the gutter and went his way. However, on seeing him, his friends took him to the hospital with two wounds in his back. At the hospital, the doctors discovered that a bullet had entered deep into his back and that it was too deep for the doctors to operate on. He was given medicine and told that such a bullet would take a long time to come to the surface where they could remove it surgically. He went home and began to minister his Anointing Water in earnest over the affected area and in a matter of days, the bullet came to his skin and was removed. He suffered no internal damage, bruising, bleeding or other injuries thereafter. Smiling broadly at how death had been swallowed up in victory in his life, he told viewers worldwide that they should trust in God alone and as He had rescued him, He would begin to make a way for them as they make God’s Word the standard for their life.

Mrs Aman Alier gave a lively testimony of how God Almighty used the Anointing Water and Anointing Sticker to save her and a Boeing 747 full of people from a fatal crash. During the flight from Atlanta, Georgia in the United States of America on a Delta Airlines flight to Lagos, Nigeria while over the Atlantic Ocean, the vessel ran into serious turbulence which tossed the plane about to and fro to the extent that the pilot not only put the please be seated sign on but also announced to the passengers to hold their children closely, to brace for impact as the aeroplane was in danger. The cabin erupted in prayer, people shouting, speaking in tongues, yelling the names of different gods but none of that worked. It was not until she took the Anointing Water and Sticker and prayed to the God of T.B. Joshua, Jesus Christ the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the flight that instantly, as if a huge hand had grabbed the plane the howling wind, the noise, the scraping sounds and the shaking all stopped and the plane flew steadily until it reached its destination. She encouraged viewers all over the world to value the gift God had given them in the life of Prophet T.B. Joshua, the Anointing Water and Anointing Sticker and not to be ashamed or shy to stand for what they really believe.




Miss Jacinta Ntumy from Ghana was horrified when after submitting an extensive and elaborate coursework, it returned to her with an ‘F’ grade. This had seriously disappointed her but she drew strength from watching Emmanuel TV that this should not be the end of her studies and that God still had something to say. She came to The SCOAN from Ghana, received the Anointing Water which she ministered on herself and continued to work as hard as she could. God manifested Himself as a God of faithfulness in her life as the final result which was projected as an ‘F’ became a First Class Honours Degree in Linguistics and Psychology in the University of Ghana. She advised that God who had turned her case around would be able to turn around any difficulty in the lives of the viewers all over the world if only we give God time and wait for His Word to speak for us because the Word of God is the final authority, settling all troubles and problems.

The faith of the congregants and viewers were built up to the extent that a suitable atmosphere was created for miracles and there was no lack of the manifestation of God’s power in the prayer line and during the ministration of the Anointing Water.


The church service of Sunday, November 9, 2014, witnessed the usual ambience of an overflow of members who came in high expectations to receive answers to their different prayers from the throne of grace. The choir lifted the spirits of the congregants with soul-edifying songs of worship; the melodic blend of the choristers’ acoustic voices with the symphony of accompanying instruments created a rich melody that preceded the message of the day as presented by Prophet T.B. Joshua.DADDY

The man of God focused on the mystery of faith and its power to transform a Christian’s life and uplift them to the realm of grace. According to him, “Faith is a spiritual force that grows and develops in the heart or spirit of man. Romans 10:17 says, ‘Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.’ This means, faith originates with God. Faith is not in ourselves. If faith is in ourselves, faith will be weak. Faith is not in apostles but faith originates with God. The more we look at God’s Word, look to God, the more we will have faith. What does this mean to you? This means, spontaneously, naturally, faith comes”.

While admonishing the congregation on the need to develop faith, he observed that it is only when their hearts are focused on the Word of God that faith would thrive and work wonders. He noted that the heart of man is often overtaken by other thoughts that ordinarily should not compete for space with God who owns everything including our hearts: “There is a conflict between light and darkness in our heart. For example, what many are saying, “When will church close today? This is six o clock; tomorrow is Monday, I am going to work”. You keep talking to yourself. All this is going on in your heart and at the same time, God wants to live in your heart. All that you are saying has nothing to do with God. God cannot be a tenant in your heart; He should take over your heart. In the same heart, faith needs to be developed but a lot of things are going on there”.

Referring to the Faith Bracelet as a tool to help in meditating on God’s Word, the man of God encouraged the congregation to count with their hands and talk to God with their hearts in order to checkmate the dubious activities of satan. “You need to be in an attitude of prayer all the time. A break in prayer is a break with God”.

Speaking further, the man of God enlightened the congregation on the dual-nature of life. According to him, life is all about falling and rising. He observed that in falling, there is always a lesson learnt that will be to the advantage of the person. He further maintained that a Christian’s faith in God is usually tested to see if he can handle the coming glory: “Life is all about falling and rising; it is not smooth. You fall and you rise again. If anybody tells you that life is all about rising, they are deceiving themselves. You rise and fall and learn a lesson from it. That is what makes you strong. If you don’t know what it takes to be condemned and you are being praised everywhere, how will you manage the blessing?”

The man of God concluded his message with a call to the congregation to increase their faith by meditating on the Word of God always as that can enhance their ability to win every battle as long as they fight from within their hearts: “To increase your faith, keep your purity. How do we keep our purity? By meditating on God’s Word day and night. Meditate on God’s Word day and night and whatever you do prospers. This (Faith Bracelet) will help you to meditate on God’s Word day and night. Any battle that is not fought in the heart but on the outside, you cannot win it. But the problem we are having today is that we don’t fight the battle in the heart but on the outside”.

Later in the service, there was mass prayer, in which Prophet Τ.Β. Joshua led the congregation in powerful prayer points:
All spirits operating through your mouth, eyes, nose, faculties – begin to command them out!
Begin to command out all religious spirits in your life – spirit of unbelief, heresy, error, in the name of Jesus Christ!
The congregation prayed along with the man of God with so much energy and are expectant of His wonder-working hand upon their situations and lives generally.

Earlier in the Sunday service Wise Man Daniel had spoken explicitly on the biblical concept of confession. In a message titled, YOU CANNOT RISE ABOVE YOUR CONFESSION, he delved into the power of Christian confession: “Christianity is the Great Confession. And the law of confession says, “I confess I have a thing before I consciously possess it.” This clearly shows that, what you speak with your mouth and then believe in your heart becomes a visible reality in this natural world as long as you constantly hold fast to your confession of faith”.
Citing the Book of Romans 10:9–10, Wise Man Daniel expatiated on the true definition of faith from a Christian perspective: “This scripture tells us that believing is a part of salvation just as confession is a part of salvation. Confession is saying what God has said in His Word; it is saying the same thing the Scripture has said; it is simply agreeing with God. With the heart, man believes unto salvation. That is, man’s heart acts on the Word and then drives the lips to confess. Remember, faith is of man’s heart, not of man’s mind or body”.

In his conclusion, the Wise Man urged Christians to endeavour to confess God’s Word so that He will bring it to pass in their lives. According to him, “If you confess that the Lord will not leave you or abandon you in whatever situation you find yourself, then you will possess the very presence of God in every step you take. Therefore, as a Christian, hold fast to your confession of faith. To hold fast to your confession of faith is to say what God has said over and over, until the thing desired in your heart and promised in His Word is fully manifested. With this, you will agree with me that your life will always go to the level of your confession. I mean, YOU CANNOT RISE ABOVE YOUR CONFESSION”.

In confirmation of God’s presence at The SCOAN and His wonderful works through His servant Prophet T.B. Joshua, more and more people have been sharing their testimonies to the glory of the Almighty God. The following are some of the testimonies that will inspire us to put all our faith in God and enjoy the goodness of His mercies. Emmanuel!


Mr & Mrs Iyeh Vincent had the problem of barrenness for five years. Both of them were having staphylococcus and Mr Vincent also had low sperm count. This problem affected their home, family and careers. Mr Vincent was often mocked. People would ask them, “For how many years have you been married and you have no child?” They went to many hospitals where the doctors told them that they would not be able to have children because of their health conditions. Mr Vincent watched Emmanuel TV and believed that they had found their place of solution. Last June, they came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water; they prayed with it and met as husband and wife.

In the meantime, Mrs Vincent got a call for a visa interview in Abuja, Nigeria. She went for the interview and was the only person out of 11 that day to be granted a visa to the U.S.A. She travelled to the U.S.A where she said that God ministered to her heart to buy baby boy clothes. When she returned to Nigeria, her husband asked her what she had bought during her time in the U.S.A; she replied that she had got baby boy clothes believing that their own time to receive a baby was coming. She started experiencing symptoms of pregnancy and went to the doctors for a test. To the doctor’s surprise, they confirmed her pregnant. They also confirmed that both of them were free from staphylococcus. She delivered a baby boy safely for the glory of God on July 11, 2014 and named him Caleb.

Mrs Nweke and her husband came to testify to the transforming goodness of God in their lives. Mrs Nweke was into business for many years. She travelled to the four corners of the earth buying and selling, importing and exporting. Her business focus shifted from African clothing to executive suits and bags to textiles and even fish. Despite her extensive travels, all efforts to maintain her resources proved useless. The money she received would go as fast as it came in and she found herself unable to give account of what she had. The frustration and setback reached a point where she decided to return to Nigeria and seek for a divine solution. When she first visited The SCOAN, to say she was broke was a gross understatement. She had reached wits end.

Privileged to receive the Anointing Water, she decided to pray with it in faith, believing for a total transformation of her life. She returned to Delta state and soon heard that there was a vacancy for the federal position of President of Market Men and Women Association, Delta State Chapter. To her utmost shock and joy, she was selected to fill this position. Last week, a splendid inauguration ceremony was held for her with invitation cards and customized bags to honour the occasion. Displaying her medal, rosette and letter of appointment, Mrs Nweke could not find words to express her happiness. After her appointment, she has started receiving calls from people she had not heard from in years from all over the world. She has a vision and plan for a modern well-equipped warehouse as an encouragement to support the grassroots in society to buy privately and sell in their respective markets. Her advice was: “In this life, there will be grievous thorns poking you and provoking you but do not be disturbed. Keep running the straight race with God and He will surely reward you, in Jesus’ name.”

Hassana and Huseina Edili Ogaji from Canada are the first female twin airline pilots in Nigeria. They are currently doing their Masters Degrees in Aviation Safety Management. Their careers were progressing but their health was in trouble, Hassana had the problem of ceased menstruation while Huseina was having spotting menstruation meaning that her menstruation was continuous. The ceased menstruation caused Hassana to have swelling in her body, pain in her legs and she was not very active; it was affecting all areas of her life. As for Huseina, the problem of hormonal imbalance and spotting menstruation caused her discomfort and was unbearable. She had to change regularly.

They watched a clip on YouTube of Prophet T.B. Joshua and they were inspired to come to The SCOAN for prayer. Last Sunday, Prophet T.B Joshua prayed for them and Hassana felt something coming out and when she went back to where she was accommodated, she started seeing her menstrual flow. Her menstruation flowed for five days, confirming it had normalized. Huseina said that after the prayer the problem of spotting menstruation had stopped and she gave God the glory. They advised people that whatever problem they are having, they should come to Jesus and trust in Him and they would also receive their healing.

Few know the ravaging effects of addictions like Mr Paul Dafiakpor who was delivered last Sunday through the Anointing Water at The SCOAN. He told a tale of how the cravings for pornography, masturbation and alcohol plagued his life, robbing him of his privileges in Christ and ruining his career.

His misfortunes all started from a young age. Born in an idol worshipping home, his father had an altar in the house. Although the altar was burnt, true deliverance had not yet come to the household as they would be tormented by nightmares and cruel setbacks. Paul would often find dogs chasing him in his dreams as well as people with weapons threatening him mercilessly.

Although he was plagued with inner torment, on the outside, Paul was trying to live a godly life. He kept his virginity till he was 23, determined to live a holy life for God. This determination was quashed however in a moment as a friend led him to a brothel and his dreams crashed on the rocks of temptation. That night he spent with a prostitute propelled him to continue the habit. Although hating himself for it and bitterly rejecting his actions, Paul continued to visit brothels in an attempt to satisfy an uncontrollable urge.

It was at this point that a friend introduced him to pornography. After watching it once, he was hooked. After buying a pornographic DVD, he would destroy it but later find himself buying another one. He found himself unable to forgive himself and this led to immense frustration, depression and even thoughts of suicide.

A particular incident that occurred in his work place in April, 2010, was etched in his memory. While relaxing during lunch break, Paul was watching pornography on his phone and as a result, he had an erection. Many were gathered there and this caused him extreme embarrassment. Someone who had been well respected and loved now became a subject of mockery and taunting. In anger, he destroyed his phone and bought a less sophisticated phone instead so he would not be able to download. But after some time, the urge became so strong and his physical strength failed him. He bought another smart phone and continued watching pornography.

Affecting him socially, financially and even psychologically, Paul became paranoid, suspecting everyone around him to be talking about him and calling him names. He hated himself and would often hear voices prompting him to end it all. Watching pornography led him to masturbate regularly and he also succumbed to alcohol. In an attempt to erase the misery, he would drink till night and would return home and collapse on the floor without eating or talking to his wife. He lost his job and for two years he remained at home in a state of depression.

Mrs Dafiakpor told her side of the story. Although she knew her husband had become dependent on alcohol, she had no idea he was addicted to pornography and masturbation. All she realised was that her credit on her phone would mysteriously disappear each time she topped it up. She said her husband was a lovely person when in his right mind but his character would often change and he would be very aggressive and despondent. She would feel for him because although he loved food, he would often go for dry fasting seeking for deliverance. She was overjoyed when she saw him on Emmanuel TV being delivered through the Anointing Water.

Since his deliverance, Mr Dafiakpor is no longer watching pornography, masturbating or drinking alcohol. His sleep is peaceful and his mind is at rest. Jesus Christ has erased the pain of the past and his testimony serves as looking back in order to glorify God for all He has accomplished in his life.

He advised that: “Deliverance is the answer. God will not answer your prayer if you are watching pornography because God does not hear sinners. Pornography is dirty. Seek deliverance and allow Jesus Christ to wipe your heart clean”.

People came from all over the world to attend the prayer line and as Prophet Τ.Β. Joshua prayed for them, their afflictions bowed to the supreme authority of the name Jesus. This was followed by the ministration of the Anointing Water to everyone present and each person returned home, fulfilled, blessed and content in Christ.



The Sunday Service on November 2, 2014 at The SCOAN was a blend of kingdom spectacle with scriptural depth. Both the ministration of the choir and the spirited rendition by Pastor Fernando Tovar from Mexico created an undiluted atmosphere for divine visitation. The congregation was passionately engaged as they responded to the soul-lifting melodies emanating from the choir. Their energetic dance clearly suggested that God was indeed right there in their midst.

Wise Man Christopher delved into the Scriptures with a thought-provoking message titled “The Coming Judgment”. He began his teaching by making an incisive analogy with the story of a teenager, who took for granted the kind decision of his community’s King to cancel the debt which the boy’s family, from one to four generations had incurred. According to Wise Man Christopher, instead of the teenager to appreciate the King’s gesture, he went the way of his forefathers, incurring more debt and attracting a jail term for himself. The teenager should have done better if he had understood his duty towards the kindness of the king. As  Wise Man Christopher analytically revealed, Today, we are all debtors being sinners. God alone is our Creditor. Whether our sins are great or small, one thing is clear – they are more than we can pay ourselves. Jesus Christ paid the debt of our situation when He died on the Cross of Calvary for our sins. Jesus is the Redeemer, the One sent to buy us back from the dominion of satan. What then is our duty? The Bible taught us in John 6:29 that the great Gospel duty is to believe in Jesus Christ”.



Wise Man Christopher elucidated further by admonishing the congregation not to take for granted the sacrificial act of the remission of our sins by Jesus, Although a person may have committed many sins, the chief sin of the unsaved is not believing in Christ. When a person gets that straightened out, the root of the problem is solved; the blood of Christ cleanses the heart, the moment a person believes and confesses Him as Saviour. The day you make Jesus Christ your Lord and Saviour, you are forgiven of all your sins, but you do not experience that forgiveness until you receive it by faith. What a grace! However, just because we are saved by grace through faith does not mean that we should continue in sin and expect the grace of God to abound. Certainly not! If certainly not, then, are we waiting expectantly for Jesus’ second coming in faith or sleeping spiritually in sin? And what should the children of God be thinking and talking about right now?”

Continuing, he expatiated on the dynamic nature and quality of faith and its uniqueness to the human situation. He outlined the platforms on which our faith can be activated while also observing that there are scenarios that render faith inactive: “Faith has a unique place where it is expressed. The unique place where faith is expressed is in our works because our works prove, perfect or complete our faith. You cannot be stealing, killing, destroying and lying and at the same time believe in salvation or restoration. If faith and works do not agree with each other, there must be something wrong with the faith. In James 2:17, the Bible says, “Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” Without works, faith is dead. Examine your daily life and you will find out how much faith you have in your spiritual life, business, career or marriage and also you will know how prepared you are for the coming judgement of Christ”.

He prayed that on that day, Christians may find themselves worthy to stand before their Creator: “O God, our Lord, make us watchful and keep us faithful as we await the coming of our Lord Jesus that when He shall appear, He may not find us sleeping in sin but active in His service and joyful in His praise.


Testimonies continue to pour in – a confirmation of God’s unceasing presence at The SCOAN. The following are some of the testimonies shared by our brethren.




Gospel Chukwuemezie was experiencing stagnation and setback in his business. One day, he visited his friend and that was the first time he watched Emmanuel TV. Watching all the testimonies given on Emmanuel TV, he decided to make his journey to The SCOAN. Before going back to his State, he had the grace to receive the Anointing Water and the Anointing Sticker. Upon getting home, he ministered the Anointing Water to his land and prayed, “Whatever I must have eaten from the table of my enemies, let it be flushed out, in Jesus’ name. Lord, secure my life by the blood of Jesus and the fire of the Holy Ghost” and things started changing – people who owed him started returning his money, everything was improving in his import and export business. He began to experience breakthrough in all areas of his life. As he was showing us the certificate he got from the Ministry of Petroleum, he further testified that he has finished building his own petrol station on the land to which he ministered the Anointing Water. Having these breakthroughs, he advises everyone to never give up. In fact, you will never escape the anointing of God.


Mr Clement Banda was addicted to drinking alcohol and watching pornography for 12 years. As a result, he could not take care of his family. He finished all his salary on his addiction and causing his wife to be unhappy. Seeing his wife sad was his joy and he would even beat her when he was drunk. His wife never knew that he was addicted to pornography.



He lost his affection for her to the point that he could not meet her without playing a porn movie in the background. He used to sit down and ask himself if that kind of life was worth living because he was seeing his life destroyed with debt everywhere. One day, he watched Emmanuel TV and prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. At night, he had a dream where Prophet T.B. Joshua laid his hand on the back of his head and when he woke up in the morning, he passed out a black substance and that marked his deliverance. Instantly, the affection for his wife was restored and he started seeing her as part of his life. Mrs Banda also testified that her husband is now a changed man and a wonderful father. He advised all to be encouraged because there is nothing that God created that He cannot change.




Mr Eberechukwu Omasi was suffering from the problem of low sperm count while Mrs Omasi was having hormonal imbalance. They decided to come to The SCOAN in search of solution to their problems. They ministered the Anointing Water to themselves as they prayed, “Heal us, oh Lord and we shall be healed, in Jesus’ name”. After ministering the Anointing Water, Mrs Omasi missed her period and was told by her doctor that she had become pregnant. Indeed, the pregnancy God gave her was not like the world gave. She never had any problem with her pregnancy and she delivered a baby boy safely. Now, they are proud parents of Baby John. Praise the Lord!


Mrs Josephine Fani Ziggar from France, a carer of orphans and children, was surprised one day to find herself in a debilitating condition. As she tried to move, the pain increased until she found herself at a standstill. Upon visiting the doctors, she was diagnosed with lumbar spondylosis and osteoarthritis in both knees. The doctors gave her medication and a lumbar corset but could not cure her problem. The pain increased to such an extent that she was forced to retire from her work. Her in-laws became her carers and had to help her in her every daily activity.



After several painful months, her son introduced her to Emmanuel TV. Witnessing the healing and deliverance of others increased her faith and she determined to visit The SCOAN for her healing in Jesus’ name.

Placed at The SCOAN Prayer Line, one of the wise men prayed for her and she felt heat move through her body. She then stood up and began to walk, to the glory of God. Since that day, she has been walking freely and has not experienced any of the pain of the past. To her joy, she has also been able to return to her work and to the children she cares so much about.

Giving glory to God, she advised all who were watching to put their trust and faith in Jesus Christ for His mercy and divine healing.


Frequent urination due to Hepatitis B had caused Rev John A. Bekoe from Ghana serious embarrassment in ministry for five years.  As the chief assistant pastor to the bishop in charge, he found himself feeling useless and hopeless as time after time while ministering on the pulpit, he would have to exit suddenly and often would not even reach the bathroom before he wet himself. This affected his confidence as a minister and caused great worry about the impression congregants had about him. It got to a point where he had to stop preaching in his church because of this stigma.



While watching Emmanuel TV and praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua one day, to his amazement Rev Bekoe received a shock, as if an electric current was surging through his body. After the prayer, he felt instantly relieved and when he went to the hospital for a checkup, he was declared Hepatitis B free! He advised others not to allow people to influence them negatively. Distance is not a barrier; if he could be healed while in Ghana, you can also be healed anywhere you are.


After recounting a terrifying tale of daily nightmares, Miss Nelly Sunday Jacob requested assistance from her sister. In response to her plea, the sister brought Anointing Water and the Anointing Sticker to her home. They prayed together, ministered the Anointing Water throughout her home and placed the Anointing Sticker on her door in Jesus’ name.



Miss Jacob suddenly felt something instructing her to dig up a place close to her door. She dug and noticed a black plastic bag in the ground containing a charm. After removing the charm, Miss Jacob found herself delightfully free from the evil dreams.

Some days later, as she entered her compound, suddenly a bucket of boiling water was poured on her. A neighbour quickly noticed it and raced Miss Jacob to hospital. By that time, her skin had become black and began to peel. She was no longer able to wear clothing at all and was in tremendous pain until her sister came to the hospital and ministered the Anointing Water on her, praying for her in the name of Jesus Christ. She felt a sudden relief and a cool sensation all over her body. Within a week, to the amazement of the doctors, her skin had healed completely. A report from the doctor declared her burn-free and infection-free.

Her advice to all was to place themselves under the protecting hand of Jesus Christ by remaining in an attitude of prayer at all times.


Mr Ayodele Olufemi started his testimony saying that his father was a famous mathematician and had encouraged his son to follow in his footsteps. However, at school, he struggled in Mathematics until a pastor introduced him to Emmanuel TV and



ministered the Anointing Water on him. He then slept and had a dream where a tall man dressed in white was speaking to a gathering of all races and each person heard in their own dialect. When he woke up, he realized that he had received inspiration in the subject of Mathematics to the degree that he could complete sums in his brain faster than a friend on a calculator. He has since discovered and developed several theories in Mathematics to help students which he has published in several textbooks which have been approved for senior secondary schools in Ghana and Nigeria. His new techniques make even the most difficult formulae, multiplications and other sums simple for students of any level. As his mathematics career began to flourish in teaching and authoring, he was able to move out of his one room apartment into his own house and now drives two cars by the grace of God. He advised the congregation that God was the Giver of all knowledge and if we make God “Our number one” we would shine in whatever field we find ourselves in.


In the time of mass prayer, Prophet T.B. Joshua came out to give some powerful prayer points: Ask Jesus for the grace of obeying His Word. To increase your faith, keep your purity.

I command every spirit hindering your present and your future; I command it out, in Jesus’ name. You must be separated from religious spirits, from your forefathers’ spirits. You must be separated.

He concluded by declaring that if we meditate on the Word of God day and night; whatever we do will prosper.
