So awesome has the week been that it will go down the annals of history as one of the most gracious occasions when the Lord visited His people; so the backslidden would rediscover their old love for Him and to set free those that were in bondage. Such was the significance of the great miracle crusade the man of God, 10544776_664450250342421_5935881558734775875_n Prophet T.B. Joshua held in Colombia last week that God’s presence was very tangible. Bursting with the irresistible power of the Holy Spirit, the bustling city of Cali was the centre of international attention with thousands of people flocking in from various states around the Southern American nation to bear witness to the great move of God.

10463862_664448530342593_1992524350637716336_nJam-packed, the elegant Pascual Guerrero Olympic Stadiumcarried an unprecedented mammoth crowd of worshippers who filled all the terraces and spilled to the playing field.

 

10445122_664472523673527_3683157689724401576_nThe emergency prayer line snaked and stretched across the pitch with people strewn all over the place in search for an encounter with the Great Physician, Jesus Christ. True to their faith, the Lord opened the Heavenly gates of anointing through His servant Prophet T.B. Joshua and what followed were great signs, miracles and wonders. 10559680_664471260340320_5228485940645739350_nMultitudes of people who came to the crusade received Jesus as their Lord and Saviour and went back home with their spiritual battles settled. Those who came on stretchers, hopping on crutches or wheeled in on wheelchairs, returned to their homes healed and glorifying God.

Prophet T.B. Joshua preached to the gospel-hungry multitude about the power of the Holy Spirit and the relevance of the Bible in every Christian’s life. He said, “Just as the authors of the Bible ‘were carried along by the Holy Spirit as they spoke the Word that came from God, we must also be carried along by the Holy Spirit to read, teach and preach it. Are we carried along today? This is the challenge we have in Christendom today. Remember, when we are not carried along by the Holy Spirit, our effort will be idle, meaningless and often times destructive.”

Referring to John 6:63, the man of God explained to the awe-inspired gathering: “It is clearly stated here that God always works through His Word and His Spirit. Both His Word and His Spirit are paramount to bringing His Will. His Word speaks about His promises; His Spirit executes it – carries it out. The Word is not complete without the Spirit. If you speak the Word without the Spirit, it remains idle. This is the big challenge in the ministry today.  There is no harmony between the Word and the Spirit.” The man of God then, under the direction of the Holy Spirit, moved to minister prayer at the prayer line where healing was like breathing as he declared healing in a mighty manifestation of God’s power to bless, heal and deliver.

Back home at The SCOAN, Wise Man Daniel preached a reflective message titled ‘Our Standard of Living As Christians’ which highlighted the Bible as the roadmap to be followed. WISEMAN DANIEL “We are to live by it. It is the only book that transforms life. It is the book of books by which we chart our course to salvation. Our Lord Jesus Christ will not open His door to salvation to the one who keeps his Bible shut,” he said.

TESTIMONIES GALORE!

Powerful testimonies lit the service at The SCOAN. Below are a few of the testimonies:

FOOTBALLERI LITERALLY LOST MY LEG – PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALLER!
Mr Monaco Bezon Tabondjo, a Cameroonian professional footballer based in Ghana, was earning his living through pushing the leather in the country’s second division when his lucrative career crashed. After ten years of a high flying career, his contract came to an end in 2012. His agent then organised that he travelled to Turkey to sign a new lucrative contract when trouble hit. He was standing on the pavement on his way to purchasing his air ticket when, from nowhere, a car crushed into his left leg breaking it in two. He almost lost his leg due to the accident which affected his tibia and fibula. The accident was so swift that he did not know what had happened to him until he woke up on the hospital bed. Then, he knew that his career was finished. But that was not his main worry. What he feared most was if he was ever to walk again. For two years, he suffered the effects of the accident and had to support himself on crutches until one day a friend brought him the Anointing Water. He prayed in faith, asking God for a permanent healing. He then ministered the Anointing Water to his leg and what happened was a miracle. The bones came together and now he can walk. He showed x-rays of how his leg has completely healed. To the glory of God, he showed his healed leg and jogged, something he could not do before. He advised viewers to give their lives to Jesus!

 

MR. & MRS. KELVIN KOMOLAFE (2)NINE MONTHS PREGNANT AFTER 10 YEARS OF BARRENNESS

Back at The SCOAN Sunday Live Service, Mr and Mrs Kelvin Komolafe had been facing a mountain of problems but the greatest was their inability to have a child for ten years. Before the two married, the wife was married to another man and they had no child between them. Doctors and specialists told them that she had a womb blockage and there were no chance she would ever bear a child. Because of this, her husband pushed her out of the house and married another woman. She became a laughingstock and centre of ridicule in society. Everyone would laugh at her for her condition. Out of frustration, she decided to go back to school just to pass the time and keep away from her tormentors. There, she met Mr Komolafe, her new husband. Still, nothing improved. There were no signs that they would have a child. In fact, Mr Komolafe’s family was against the marriage. One day, the Holy Spirit opened their eyes. She was at a friend’s place where she watched Emmanuel TV. She heard testimonies of people who had been blessed with children after ministering the Anointing Water. She came to The SCOAN where she received her own. They started to pray and anointing themselves, asking God to open her blocked womb. They slept as husband and wife and soon, she discovered she had conceived. She was actually three months pregnant. Happy and full of joy that God had done it for them, the couple decided to come to return the glory to Him and say, “Thank You, Jesus!” They advised couples in a similar situation not to despair but keep their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

DR. DOROTHY MUMBADOCTORS TREAT, GOD HEALS!

When Dr Dorothy Mumba, a medical personnel in Zambia was assigned to travel to the northern part of the country for an emergency, all that raced through her mind was how to reach her destination and help save life. An outbreak had been reported in that area and she was to offer her expertise. Unfortunately, on the way, they had a terrible accident. One tyre of the car they were travelling in burst, the car lost balance and somersaulted several times. She woke up on the hospital bed in the Intensive Care Unit where she lay in horrible pain for one and a half months. She had sustained head injuries and was covered in blood. Supported in a neck collar and covered in bandages, she was told that her full recovery was highly unlikely. One day, a visitor who came to the hospital saw her condition and the agony she was in. He ministered the Anointing Water to her wounds and, slowly, she noticed great change in her condition. She felt better as the fractures rapidly healed. Soon after, she was freed of her neck collar. Standing before the congregation with the wonderful testimony, she showed how fit she is once again after the ministration of the Anointing Water. Of the injuries, all that is left is a little scar on her forehead – a reminder of the severity of the injuries she had sustained. Now free and fit, she advised viewers to believe in God’s healing power.

 

YOUTHFLESHLY LUSTS FLUSHED OUT OF THE YOUTH!

More youths came forward to testify how they received self-deliverance through Faith Bracelets they received from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. Confessing how satan kept them under the bondage of fleshly lusts, they now testify that they are free. The first, Miriam Ezekiel, had the case of a spiritual husband who used to torment her in her dreams. Actually, he used to appear to her physically when she was alone. After receiving the Faith Bracelet, she started to count her faith with it. That night, she had a dream. The spiritual husband appeared again but on this occasion, she was not alone – as she counted her Faith Bracelet, she saw Jesus Christ standing by her side. As the demon charged towards here there appeared between them a large billboard with the words inscribed, ‘No More Torment!’ When the notorious spiritual husband saw this, he was scared and hurriedly ran away. Jesus Christ then removed the ring which had been on Miriam’s finger and cast it into the river from whence the spiritual husband had come. Since then, the spiritual husband has not appeared to her; she is free and her heart is at peace meditating on God’s Word.

For Agbo Israel, he had the spirit of lust and was addicted to pornography and masturbating. As a result, nothing worked for him in his studies. This made him depressed. The more he tried to stop the foul habits, the more they increased. When he received the Faith Bracelet, he started to ask God to deliver him. He meditated repeatedly, counting with his hand and speaking with his heart. He received his self-deliverance and is now free, to God’s glory.

In her case, Deborah Sunday had the problem of heartburn. This forced her to be selective of the food she ate as eating certain foods would result in immediate discomfort and internal burning sensations. Upon receiving her Faith Bracelet, she started to pray and ask God to heal and deliver her of this situation. Today, the heartburn is a thing of the past.
Another youth, Stephen Lenity, was also addicted to watching pornography. It all started one day while in the company of bad friends. He found them watching pornography and when he joined to watch, the evil spirit entered him. He became addicted to this bad habit and his thoughts were polluted and he began to lust after girls. Following his reception of the Faith Bracelet, his life has changed. He testified that he is no longer a slave of fleshly thoughts and even the idea now repulsed him.

 

We hope you have been blessed with these testimonies and we pray that your faith will bear fruit in Christ Jesus and that as you have rejoiced at the testimonies of others, your own testimony is just around the corner!

 

Prophet T.B. Joshua

Prophet T.B. Joshua

Every Sunday service in The SCOAN is loaded with the power, the presence and the promises of God coming to a beautiful crescendo of fulfilment. The presence of the Holy Spirit was palpable in the captivating service as congregants really advanced more in their understanding of the kingdom of God – a superb spiritual expository and synthesis from which individuals were able to rediscover themselves in terms of their closeness to Heaven in their thoughts, deeds and actions as depicted in the state of their hearts!

Opening further our spiritual faculty, the man of God decried man’s tendency to neglect his reliance on God and become more of self, saying this was why man cannot control himself; he has become unfaithful and is unkind towards one another. He noted that man today takes things for granted to the extent that he does not see the need for God until tragedy hits.
The man of God also taught on the need to rely on the power of the Holy Spirit. Quoting from scriptures in 2 Peter 1:21, Colossians 1:9 among others, he enthused that holy men of God spoke the word and wrote the Bible as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit and if we are to read the Bible, we should be carried along by the Holy Spirit in like manner. He warned: “If we are not carried along by the Holy Spirit, in what we read, teach or preach, all our effort would be idle, meaningless, and oftentimes destructive. Prayer and Bible reading must go together. If you miss one, you miss all.”

Earlier, Wise Man Daniel delivered an enlightening message titled: Depend on God for Everything – a premonition to Christians that they need God. Picking his proof text from the Book of Acts 16:16-18, he said Satan can only be stopped in the spirit, by the power in the blood of Jesus Christ.
“Therefore, in Christ Jesus, we have a firm and well grounded expectation of future felicity. Apostle Paul became victorious in his confrontation with the evil spirit because he depended upon Jesus Christ alone for his strength and victory in his battle against the evil spirit. Apostle Paul knew that, all authority in Heaven and on earth has been invested in that name, Jesus Christ,” he said.

TESTIMONIES GALORE
Scores of people registered to glorify God through testimonies of what He has done in their lives. Below, are just a selected few:

CHARTERED ACCOUNTANT CAN NOW COUNT HIS BLESSINGS

The story of Chief Okon from Yola, Northern Nigeria was one of a life condemned to persistent frustrations. Despite being a chartered accountant, his career growth did not reflect the caliber of his qualifications. He watched his peers and those he had personally trained ascend the ladder of promotions to levels of Commissioners while he stood grounded in the same position of rejection and watch with bitterness. To feed his family and to send children to school was a back-snapping strain he had to endure. It was while chained to the bondage of such humiliating limitations that in 2013, he agreed with his wife to seek the face of God.

Chief Okon & Wife

Chief Okon & Wife

They came to The SCOAN where they received the Anointing Water. Back home, they prayed in the name of Jesus Christ with faith that God would locate and reposition them. He ministered the Anointing Water and three days later, he received a call that was to change his story. A man he did not even know but working for the government in the capital Abuja, asked him to file his CV to his office. He was surprised; it was the first time that someone had asked for his resume without him expressing interest. He was told government was looking for a man to do a job involving the verification of solid minerals for southern states. A few days later, the same man called and told him that his name had been confirmed. Glory be to God as that marked the end of his limitations; and he went on to carry out the project satisfactorily. Today, they live a happy life of progress, drive nice cars and are building houses which they could not afford in their former financial state. They advised people to believe and trust in God, saying, “Ask and you shall receive.”

SUPERNATURALLY HEALED!
With a vibrant entry that left the sound of praise ringing in the rafters, Mrs Uyok Edofia shouted aloud for joy to the Lord for what He had done for her. She was attacked by armed robbers in her residence from where she rushed to the hospital for treatment on the various machete cuts on her body by the armed bandits. It was from one of the injections given to her in the hospital that an abscess in her buttocks developed which degenerated into untreatable gangrene that almost consumed her entire right buttock.

Mrs. Uyok Edofia

She was taken from one hospital to another in search of specialists who could save her life but there was no one who could help her. The specialists said that if they removed some of the affected cells, the wound would heal by itself but as the doctors removed the bad tissues, the gaping hole in her flesh only sank deeper. Sooner, the buttocks began to rot. Hospitals started to reject her, saying that the wound was more advanced than they could handle. Anywhere she went, the pungent air clung to her – a constant reminder of the intensely painful injury she carried. She always had to lie down. For four months, she could neither sit nor stand and her brother summoned from school had to be with her all the time, feeding and bathing her every day in the hospital bed. As if her words had not painted a vivid enough picture, the photos taken while in bed displayed on the board were like something taken from a horror film – such was the degree of damage the abscess had caused. That was her condition until she came in contact with the Anointing Water of The SCOAN given to her by a colleague which she began to apply to the horribly shattered buttock! Her brother also began to play The SCOAN’s CDs and videos for her to further buoy up her faith just as her husband also went to install Emmanuel TV at home. She was unable to stand or sit throughout the time she had the abscess in her right buttock and was permanently lying on one side. Left with no option but still hoping for a miracle, she began to pray along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on the screen and ministering the Anointing Water day and night. Suddenly the power of God came upon her as the side which had become dead began to receive new life. Flesh emerged and the terrible wound in her buttocks began to close and cover up day by day as they continued to minister the Anointing Water over the affected area. It was such a rapid transformation within a month that the doctors who had written her off were dazed by the miracle. Then, a picture showing the tiny mark which was all that remained of the once rotting abscess in her backside completed the testimony of God’s awesome restorative power. She concluded that men should trust in Jesus Christ’s authority and not man’s majority.

I HAVE MORE CONTRACTS THAN I HAVE TIME
Chief Ndubuisi Christopher, a native of Anambra State but living in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, found life a constant struggle. Being involved in the computer and construction industry for over 10 years, he would wrestle to receive the payment of the contracts and projects he completed.

Chief Ndubuisi Christopher

Some small payments would take over a year to be made and many big projects were still outstanding until he came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water. As he took it home and began to minister it to himself and his environment, his payments that were owed to him automatically started coming in including some even from people he had lost all hope that they would ever answer him. In a year, he would get only between one and three contracts but just three weeks after he received the Anointing Water, he had already received four contracts. As he stood before the congregation fondly holding a large file of papers, he proclaimed that since receiving the Anointing Water, he now had so many projects that he could not even finish them all in a year! He counted them one by one – 11 contracts in all from the ministry of aviation and seven other large scale jobs from the Millennium Development Goals Initiative all of which he said were not the kind of contracts he had been used to doing rather they were all extraordinary projects. His face told the story; his destiny and his testimony had been restored.
While the worldwide audience was still savouring the uncommon outpouring of blessings upon Chief Ndubuisi’s life, he further shocked the listeners as he testified that he had also been in the area of Abuja that had recently been bombed, stating that his office was even in the same plaza where the attack took place, and he had passed the exact area of the attack about three minutes before the carnage broke out. That week, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua had appealed to people to fast and pray over an attack in the city. He and his family heeded the instruction in righteousness and miraculously he had a narrow escape from the calamity that eventually befell the plaza! That is how he escaped what would have been his death. He showed pictures of the bomb blast scene with smoke rising from the demolished vehicles left in its wake. He summed his testimony up with a stirring word of advice that we should learn to trust in God in all situations and acknowledged that if all this had happened to him in just the space of a few months of receiving the Anointing Water, the best was definitely yet to come.

FAITH BRACELETS BREAK BAD HABITS
Youth from The SCOAN continued with their wonderful testimonies, narrating how God had intervened in their affairs and how they had received self-healing and self-deliverance through the Faith Bracelet given to them by Prophet T.B. Joshua. The first to recount his breakthrough was Benjamin Nosa. Before receiving his bracelet, he was addicted to Facebook and pornography. These bad habits had led him to meeting women online and engaging in ‘phone sex’ with people whom he had never even met. These fleshly addictions ruined his spiritual life and his relationship with God until he started praying with the Faith Bracelet. He started to meditate with it and ask God to flush out all negative thoughts and urges that polluted his mind. Today, he testified of his freedom, Jesus Christ having broken sin’s power in his life.YOUTH
Another youth, Tabitha Chukwuka, had a violent spirit of anger. Although from a Christian family where her mother insisted on reading the Bible before going to bed, she would not find the time to read hers. At school, she would fight with people and at one point; the school principal had to write her parents over her unbecoming and violent behavior. In her dreams she would wash her clothes but they would disappear. She did not know what was happening to her life. Having received the Faith Bracelet, she started to pray for the spirit of anger to depart of her. The same day, she had the same dream. This time around, she caught the culprit who was stealing her clothes, grabbed her and sank her finger deep around her chest, trying to rip her apart. She was so angry, until Prophet T.B. Joshua appeared on the scene and spoke calmness which seemed to wash over her being like cool water. Without a word, she had received her deliverance in that instant and was set free. Now, she has received calmness in place of the storm which once ruled her life.
Abidemi Bello had an inexplicable hatred for her mother and often wished her to die. She would not associate, spend time or even speak with her mother for days at a time. It tormented her so much because on her own, she would begin to think about her mother lovingly until she set eyes on her and the hatred would be rekindled. That was until she received the Faith Bracelet and began praying for the Holy Spirit to take more of her and give her more of Him. Since then, her hatred for her mother has become history. She has received self-deliverance and her life with that of her family, has been transformed. She now joins her mother to cook at home and in domestic chores she used to avoid for dread of contact with her. She advised youths all over the world that with Jesus Christ, all things are possible.
Deborah Ikuemonisan had been bedwetting from birth. In her dreams, she would see herself enter the restroom to ease herself only to suddenly wake up to find that what she had dreamed to be the lavatory, was her own bed. This prevented her from visiting friends and sleeping over. She could not also invite friends to her place, lest they discover that she was bedwetting. Since she received the Faith Bracelet and began to count her faith, the problem of bedwetting has become a thing of the past.
All the youths who came forward testified of how their lives had transformed the instant they started using the Faith Bracelet and advised fellow youths to watch out how they use modern social media and to take the Word of God as standard for their lives.

GOD GAVE US A TESTIMONY
For many years, Mr and Mrs Ajah, residents of South Africa had been praying to God to give them a testimony as they had seen others give on Emmanuel TV. Their problems started the moment they got married.

Mr & Mrs Ajah

Mr & Mrs Ajah

They did not have a stable income and could not support their home of four children successfully. Inspired by people they had seen testify on Emmanuel TV, they came to The SCOAN this year where one of the wise men prayed for them. They also received the Anointing Water and left for home. They were a couple living on their last penny. Even on landing back home at the airport, they had no money for a taxi. One day, they heard of a property which had been put up for sale. Although they did not have money, they decided to go and investigate. A voice spoke to the wife to take up the property and use it for charity. When the agent heard what they intended to do with the building, he handed over the keys without them paying anything and offered them a generous time frame within which to pay. Now they run a ministry of charity, reaching out to many souls and God has blessed them abundantly. They could not feed themselves, now they are able to feed others. They have a pre-school, agricultural land and a school bus – all in a space of four months. They have become employers, creating jobs wherever they go. When God sets you free, you are free indeed!

The service closed with the ministration of the New Anointing Water by

ACKNOWLEDGE GOD, ALWAYS!

PROPHET T B JOSHUA

This Sunday service, a build-up on last week’s when the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua exposed the traits of religious worshipping in contrast to true Christianity, was another learning experience of the deep things of the Holy Spirit. Engaging the congregation in a sermon that was abound in practical and spiritual applications for Spirit-filled prayer that brings Jesus on the scene, he described the heart as a communication point and therefore, worthy of purity and embodiment of peace within. Prayer, he said, should be from one’s heart because ‘the heart is the medium God uses to speak to us.’ He explained: “Heart means spirit. Your spirit must be immersed in the Spirit of God to declare the peace. If your spirit has not joined itself to the Spirit of God, there can be no peace of heart. It is not all up to God; certainly, it is not all up to you. Your genuine willingness and God’s ability must come together.”

Teaching about the folly of seeking material things above things of God, he said, “The dividend of peace of heart is contentment; you will be content and stop comparing yourself to others. A man may be poor, yet be a friend of God. When your wealth is more than your spiritual life or you are known all over the world but it is not from God, all that you have will be spending you instead of you spending it. That is, money is spending you.”

“If your spiritual life is zero, your life is zero. The Bible says ‘the wealth I give you is not as the world gives.’ One can get wealth by other means but the difference between the one from God and the one from other ways, is peace of heart. You are to prosper in your spiritual life. If you are not prospering in your spiritual life, it will be enslaved by your financial life. This is why the Lord has given us this day to build your spiritual life. God is busy building Himself into us, making Himself a part of us.”

The man of God then prophesied to the congregation before proceeding to minister healing and deliverance at the prayer line where many souls were set free from the grip of the devil at the mention of the name, Jesus!

WISEMAN CHRISTOPHEREarlier, Wise Man Christopher educated those listening about how wrong it is to seek the face of God for personal reasons and sidelining Him when all is well. His message was titled: WE NEED TO ACKNOWLEDGE GOD and its proof text was taken from Deuteronomy 8:10-20. He said: “If you want to enjoy forgiveness, healing, deliverance, blessing, prosperity and victory forever, you must discover the need to acknowledge God, the Source. No one closes the source of water and expects it to flow; but he who cares for and sincerely appreciates the source of the water, will continue to enjoy a steady supply.”

He also said, “The danger of seeking forgiveness, healing, deliverance, blessing and prosperity only to forget the source after the needs are met is that, when the blessings diminish and finally fade away, one begins to see Jesus in a bad light and ask obvious questions: Why are we poor or sick again? Why are we entangled again in our problems?”

He advised, “If you are to have victory over the situation you are in, you should appreciate the good works of our Lord, Jesus Christ and His presence around you.Thank Him for lifting you up when you stumble. Thank Him for not allowing your enemy to rejoice over you. Many have gone because of the same sickness or problem that you had in the past but here you are living freely. Those who are placed on top of a horse should always remember those who cannot ride on a donkey; the privileged should remember the less privileged.When you think about God and all His blessings upon your life, your greediness, grumbling and doubt will give way to praises.”

TESTIMONIES

Hundreds of people came forward to testify to the greatness and goodness of God. Below are just a few of the many wonderful testimonies which prove that Jesus still heals, delivers and supplies for all of man’s needs.

ANOINTING WATER WASHED ME TO PROSPERITY!

PRECIOUS NNADI & WIFE

Mr Precious Nnadi and his wife were living in woeful poverty. However hard they tried, they only managed to walk in full circles of poverty – from one financial problem to another. With breakthrough seemingly impossible, they decided to relocate to Lagos but they could not afford it. Borrowing money from friends after a long struggle, they finally arrived in Lagos where they rented a tiny room. In the wife’s own words, they ‘smelled of poverty’. Meanwhile, they had heard of how God was blessing people at The SCOAN and decided to visit in search of divine solution. He received the Anointing Water and Anointing Stickers, went home and continued to hunt for a job – any kind of job that would put food on the table. Soon, one of his friends introduced him to a clearing and forwarding business but they were deceitful people. As a child of God, he was shocked. He wanted to do the same job decently and earn clean money. He continued to minister the Anointing Water and asking God to locate him. Soon, things changed.  People started giving him small jobs and eventually, big offers followed. From 20,000 naira a day, he was now making up to 500,000 naira. More money poured in and they were able to move from the small hut into a more spacious apartment. Their life having improved, he decided to economically empower his wife and asked her to find a space for a shop of her own. He stocked the shop beyond the wife’s expectation. But that was not all. He asked her one day to go to the car dealer and pick the car of her choice. He paid cash and since then, a family that could not even afford a loaf of bread and had to borrow money, now leads a prosperous and happy life all because of Jesus!

 

FROM DEMOTION TO PROMOTION!

BATHOLOMEW OKOUGBOSUN

If there is one who knows the real meaning of demotion and stagnation in life, Mr Bartholomew Okougbosun from Edo state, Nigeria, is the one. He was faced with spiritual attacks, setback and nightmares. At a specific time at night, he would have a creepy experience of a cockroach falling on his head and crawling over him. With the help of his wife, he would turn the room upside down, hunting for the filthy creature but would not find it, let alone catch any. In the midst of this confusion, he was also having an affair with a strange woman in his dreams. When this happened, nothing would work out for him the next day. He was employed by the federal government in the Youth Service Corp. While his peers were getting promotions and progressing in life, he remained frustratingly chained to stagnation. At one point, they wanted to actually demote him. Because he was the best for the job, he was astounded to see his name on the retrenchment list. He knew then that his situation was not ordinary and decided to seek Heavenly intervention. He came to The SCOAN where he received the Anointing Water and in faith prayed, asking God to reverse his demotion and manifest His greatness in his life. He ministered it in his home, on himself and at his office. One day, he received a call from his office. He was not perturbed, having left the battle in the able hands of God and true to his belief, not only had he been retained in his job, but was also promoted. He is now head of another local government with greater responsibility. Praise God!

 

ASTOUNDING FAITH BRACELET TESTIMONIES FROM THE YOUTH!

YOUTH {FAITH BRACELET TESTIMONIES}
At least ten youth came forward to give incredible testimonies of how they had experienced the powerful presence of God through the Faith Bracelet which they received recently from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. The enemy behind the spiritual battles they were facing was exposed by the Faith Bracelet they had received. They talked of how the Holy Spirit, through the Faith Bracelet, had set them free from spiritual attacks, chronic addictions to pornography and many vices associated with the modern generation.

One of the youth, Joseph Chukwuma, had been battling with the spirit of lust. In school, he had joined a gang of bad friends who started influencing him in many negative ways, skipping classes, following girls and many other things. The evil spirit affected his academic performance. Lustful thoughts had taken over his mind and this led him to making love with a strange woman in his dreams. Like the rest of the youth, when he received his Faith Bracelet, he began to meditate, asking God to ‘Take more of me and give me more of You – Your holiness, kindness, peace, love, hope, and faithfulness’. That same day, he slipped into sleep and had a dream where he saw himself in a gang of his notorious friends. He then saw Prophet T.B. Joshua pass by and he tried to walk towards him but his friends held him back. They tied a tight noose around his legs and waist so that he couldn’t move. Suddenly, he saw that he was holding his Faith Bracelet. A great strength came upon him and he tore the rope off. Something ministered to his heart to touch the leader of the gang with his Faith Bracelet who fell to the ground and the rest of the gang panicked and fled. He was able to move forward and reach where the man of God was standing. Smiling, filled with joy and victory, he spoke a word to parents that technology was destroying youth like him all over the world and they should try to get the Faith Bracelet for their children to capture their thoughts to the glory of God.

Success Ozeghe testified that she had suffered ceased menstruation for two years. When the time came for her to meditate on the Word of God or pray, nothing would happen and it affected her emotionally and spiritually. After receiving her Faith Bracelet, she started to meditate that God should take more of her and give her more of Him. She had a dream and saw a tall, giant man who wanted to stab her with a sharp object. She held her Faith Bracelet and immediately saw a sharp object appear. She grabbed it and quickly threw it at the giant, hitting him on the forehead. He fell to the ground dead. Not long after, when she woke up, she discovered that her menstruation had started to flow again after two years.

Miracle Ogbodo, another youth, was addicted to playing computer games. When he woke up in the morning, all that preoccupied his mind was playing games. This affected his education. In class, he would be playing games on his phone instead of listening to the lectures. At home, he would not listen to his parents as all they did, said or asked was distracting him from what he loved the most – playing games. He also had a spirit of anger which made him act violently towards everybody around him, especially when he was not able to play computer games. When he received the Faith Bracelet and got home that day, something strange happened. As he sat down to play games as usual, he found that instead of reaching for his phone or computer to play games, he took the Faith Bracelet from his wrist and started meditating the Word of God. Now, he spends his time counting his faith with the Faith Bracelet, meditating with it and staying connected to God.

 

CEASED MENSTRUATION FLOWS AFTER SEVEN YEARS

MRS. MBECHO EMILIA

Mrs Mbecho Emilia from Cameroon was suffering from ceased menstruation and hormonal imbalance. For seven years, the affliction caused her pain and trauma. It was in the midst of such tribulation that she decided to visit The SCOAN and seek the face of God. She received the Anointing Water and back home, she prayed and ministered it by spraying it into her mouth and on her stomach, asking God to intervene in her issue. That night, she had a dream. She saw herself in a theatre where she was being operated on. When she woke up from sleep, her menstruation had resumed. When she went back to the hospital for an examination, the doctors were stunned at the miracle that had happened in her life. What they could not solve, Jesus did – a further confirmation of the truth that man may treat but healing is of the Lord! She advised people not to lose hope in God.

 

EMMANUEL TV IS ‘LIGHTNING PROOF’

MR. YEMI & WIFE

Mr Yemi Ajayi and his wife came to The SCOAN from Kwara State in northern Nigeria for the first time to give this compelling testimony. In July 2013, they were at home watching their favourite channel, Emmanuel TV and something mysterious happened. It started raining and suddenly they heard the sound of terrifying thunderstorm. Lightning burst into the room through the window and hovered over them. It then shot to the television, circled the screen three times and went out as quickly as it came. None of the 21 people who were in the room were hurt neither did it affect any electrical appliance. Everyone started to praise God for their miraculous survival which was brought about by the presence of Emmanuel TV that was on. It was reported that strange lightning strikes had been killing people in the same area.

Narrating their miraculous escape, Mr Ajayi said of Prophet T.B. Joshua, “We might see him as a human being with a modest stature but the mighty power of God inside him is of immeasurable size!” Prophet T.B. Joshua said that the lightning had been sent by evil forces to kill a woman in their midst but had encountered the voice of God coming through Emmanuel TV and was dispelled.

DELIVERANCE FROM SPIRIT OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT AND SUICIDE

From birth, Miss Divine’s life was one filled with pain and hatred. She was a product of rape, her mother having been raped while in secondary school. Angry that the incident had interrupted her education, her mother who was living in Ghana then, waited until the little girl was seven years old and brought her to Nigeria at the pretext of visiting relatives. But her mother left her with them. It was when she was 12 that she discovered they were not even distant relatives.

Divine became a house help. Although she was able to go to school, she could see that she was not a complete member of the family. She lacked love and felt unwanted. As time passed, she would be passed on from one family to another. When her mother called her on the rare occasions she did, she would sign off the phone conversation by reminding her that she had interrupted her life.

Thank God, Divine at one point stayed with a businesswoman who was into clothing design. It was there she learnt the art and was able to start her life from that point. Later on in life, a friend she trusted enticed her to travel to Lagos where she said she would easily get a contract as a model. But it was a lie and she was instead, initiated into prostitution. On that fateful day, the other girls she had found in the compound posing as models called for a welcoming party. While everyone was drinking alcoholic drinks, she asked for a soft drink because she had never tasted alcohol before. They gave her a soft drink but, unknown to her, it had been drugged. The moment she drank it, she slipped into a deep sleep and when she woke up, she discovered she had incisions on her legs. She also discovered that she had an anklet on her ankle and jewellery around her waist. She had been initiated into prostitution and through that, wherever she went to, she would always come back to them. Without any notice, a man was brought into the house and raped her while everyone was watching.

She bled profusely and thought she would die. Gathering courage, she packed her bag the following day while no one was watching and bolted out the door. As she left, she did not even know where she was escaping to. A young man, Mr Kingsley found her sitting helplessly on the street and brought her to The SCOAN. After the New Anointing Water was ministered to her, the evil spirit in her manifested, identifying itself as the spirit of suicide and sexual harassment. She was then delivered in the name of Jesus Christ. Since that time, she is free and her dreams have become blissful.

The service ended with the ministration of The New Anointing Water to the congregation with diverse healings and deliverances!

Spiritually insightful and prophetically life changing! That is how last Sunday service can perfectly be summarized. Speaking with power and inspired by the anointing of the Holy Spirit to share power-tools needed in effective prayer and spiritual utterances, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua ushered the congregation into a heavenly classroom, drawing a huge line between religious people and Christians in the way they hold themselves before God. He explained that knowing God is not only seeing His works but learning His ways. Addressing the awe-inspired congregation he said, “When you learn His ways, you will work with His projects and act with His projects. You will know God’s opinion about others. You will begin to know God’s opinion about yourself and others,” he stated.

He warned people against using the recently launched Faith Bracelet as religious people would. Religious people count their faith with their hands and talk with their mouth. But Christians count it with their hands but talk with their heart. Count your faith means, speak and meditate the language of the Bible you have just read. If you talk with your mouth, others will hear but God will not hear. We use our ears but God uses our heart. Only faith pleases God. Faith is of man’s heart. You have been talking with your mouth but the Faith Bracelet will teach you to talk with your heart.

Describing mankind as living in a ‘two-language world’ – the language of the Bible and the language of today. He said the language of the Bible God uses to create and save us, to heal and bless us, to judge and rule over us is what Christians must speak. The language of today people use to gossip, tell stories, do business, give direction, talk to their children.

The man of God then proceeded to minister at the prayer line where hundreds of visitors from all over the world gathered and, with the power of the Holy Spirit, they received their healing and deliverance as the Prophet prayed for and declared them free, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

WISE MAN RACINE

Earlier, Wise Man Racine gave an inspiring message titled: THE MIND OF CHRIST. According to him, “The mind of the Spirit of God is an independent mind; a mind that thinks for itself. It is a mind that is determined to find out the truth from God and not man”.

 

 

TESTIMONIES

Scores of people came forward to testify to the goodness of God in their lives. Below are but a selected few of the wonderful testimonies:

BECAUSE OF CHRIST, I CAN WALK AGAIN!
The story of Mr Osaretin Douglas is heartrending. For five long years, he suffered horrible back and waist pain. He could neither stand, bend or sit. To perform such simple tasks proved impossible. In search of root cause, he visited numerous hospitals and had numerous tests carried out on him. The doctors could not diagnose a thing let alone offer solution. It reached a point where he was lying down horizontal, not even able to sit up, completely dependent on others. In this state, he was carried to a hospital in Abuja where they recommended a lumbo sacral test for him. To conduct the test cost a huge sum of money which he could not afford. In desperation, he had to sell his only car. The test uncovered severe tuberculosis of the spine. He was told the only solution was an expensive and complicated operation. That aside, he was told that it was 50-50 chance of him coming out better or worse. As a temporary support, they offered him a lumbar corset but that could not banish the excruciating pain that got worse by the day.

Last Friday, as he was contemplating how he could raise the money for an operation, he switched on Emmanuel TV and there was a live Friday service going on. As he watched, the man of God Prophet TB Joshua praying for those at the prayer line, he fell asleep and had a vivid dream where he saw the Prophet praying for him at The SCOAN. As soon as he woke up, he told his wife that they needed to travel to The SCOAN immediately. By faith, they made the challenging journey due to his condition. Arriving late, they were told to sit at the overflow congregation. During the long hours of the service, he could not sit down and was trying to use his hand to suspend himself but his healing was just around the corner.

Mr OSARETIN DOUGLAS

Towards the end of the service, when his strength was waning, evangelists moved around ministering the new Anointing Water. He positioned himself physically and spiritually and as the Anointing Water was ministered to him, he claimed his healing. Within seconds, he felt instant relief, stood up and started to walk. He joyfully asked his wife to remove the lumbar corset. Unsure if this was a wise thing to do considering the severity of his sickness, she unbuckled him only to see her husband maintain his standing stance and walk about – a thing he could not do before. Since then, he has been moving freely without pain. Because of Christ, one spray of the Anointing Water released him from the bondage of tuberculosis of the spine. Because of Christ, an operation is no longer necessary. Glory be to God!

BEDWETTING DISHONOURED ME!
What could shame a politician more than waking up one morning to discover he had bed wetted? Such was the horror Hon Tamaraudoubra Zimughan from Bayelsa State, Nigeria found himself in. One morning, three decades ago, a friend he was sharing a room with, pointed to his mattress that was wet. It was evident this was no ordinary water. He had bed wetted and he was not a small boy. He was gripped with shame and embarrassment that a friend had found out. What he thought was a once-off thing, proved stubborn and bound him in chains of shame and embarrassment for 30 years of private torture. He could not disclose his affliction to anyone for fear of stigma and continued to single handedly wrestle with it discreetly. No one in his family suffered from such a problem and this fact humiliated him so much. He spent all his nights sleepless, waking up at night to turn on the fan to dry his wet bedding. He would also iron his bed sheets before dawn. He tried to pray and fast. He even visited spiritualists all in a futile attempt to rid himself of this affliction that had dishonored him so much. One day, when his eyes were opened to the healing power of Jesus Christ, he came to The SCOAN, seeking total healing and deliverance.

Hon Tamaraudoubra Zimughan

He received the Anointing Water and quickly went back home where he ministered it to himself. What had humiliated him for almost three decades, surrendered to the power of God within a second! He testified that he no longer bed wets and feels comfortable when he travels and sleeps away from home. Thank You, Jesus!

SCOOPED FROM THE ARMS OF THE GRAVE
At an early stage of life, all was well for Alhaji Kassim Ajisebata. Business was booming, prospects were looming and he had friends in high places. He was a well-known business man in Kaduna, Nigeria, well established and wealthy. But these good times ended all too soon as his life took a tragic twist. His business collapsed and his close associates flee. Having lost everything he had labored for, he found himself moving from one spiritualist to another, desperate for a way out. The ‘way out’ they offered him came in the form of charms and mysterious items. In one extreme desperation, he was taken to a stream and taught some diabolical incantations. He was also given various evil items supposedly to restore his fortunes but he discovered that they did the absolute opposite. The items included pots with sand inside, black soap, a sponge, oil and other strange substances. He was also given a cloth from the graveyard which he was told to keep under his pillow. These practices isolated him from normal life. His friends became the dead and his comfort was the graveyard. Both day and night, he would be tormented by dead people, following him and hunting him down. He was a dead man living. With his body plagued with sickness, he began in earnest to seek for deliverance. One night in a dream, he saw many elderly people coming towards him and then he heard a voice say, “Go to Prophet T.B. Joshua”. At that instant, he woke up and determined to visit The SCOAN.

Alhaji Kassim Ajisebata

Sitting in The SCOAN Sunday Service the previous week, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua pointed him out, prophesying that he had some mysterious objects in his house. Confirming the prophecy, he declared that it was 100 percent accurate. He went back home and returned last Sunday with his diabolical items. He displayed the mysterious diabolical items before the children of God, exposing what he had previously hidden, even from his own wife. Emphasizing that these items are now rendered powerless, Alhaji Kassim Ajisebata spoke of the freedom he had received in spirit, soul and body after receiving the prophecy. Now, he no longer has nightmares or sees dead people. He has peace and rest of mind and is free from diabetes and many other afflictions that had turned his body into an altar of sicknesses. He advised people to run to God and not away from Him. Short of words to express her joy at the freedom that has now taken over her once fetish home, his wife thanked God for delivering the family.

LIVE MAGGOTS CRAWLED OUT OF MY LEG!!
Mr Christian Ekaplugh, a Nigerian Police cadet, was on a journey in a vehicle with 23 colleagues when they had a horrible accident. They were all trainee cadets at the national Police Academy and on their way for attachment in another state. For some time, the coaster they were travelling in had been cruising and at the same time sounding wobbly as if one wheel was loose. Just when they were about to point this out to the driver, the inevitable happened. The wheel flew off and the vehicle somersaulted several times before it caught fire. There was confusion as onlookers stood helpless and watched the roaring tongues leap into the air and threaten to consume the vehicle in one swoop. Trapped inside, the only option was to break the windows. It was in this process that he broke his leg, rupturing and shattering his bones. The driver was burnt to death right there while another passenger sustained serious injuries and burns to the head. None escaped unhurt.

Rushed to hospital, the doctors diagnosed a compound fracture. The damage to his leg was so severe that they decided that the only option was amputation. Refusing the amputation, the doctors attempted to fix the bones back together using an external metal fixation, causing excruciating pain and a ghastly sight to behold. Instead of healing, his leg started decaying.

A strong healthy young man suddenly found himself unable to use his legs or do anything without assistance. He remained in this state for one and a half years until he came to The SCOAN. Due to the severity of his condition, he was brought in a car. Unable to attend the prayer line, he received the Anointing Water, took it home and ministered it by faith. A short time later, he had a dream where the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, warned him not to go for an operation which doctors had recommended. He opted to follow the advice and kept on ministering the Anointing Water. The next day, the creepiest thing happened. He watched with horror as two live maggots crawled out of his leg. However, to his utmost relief, the severe pain and burning sensation stopped immediately. His appetite that was lost immediately returned and he demanded for food upon food which he ate like a hungry lion.

Mr Christian Ekaplugh

That moment proved to be the turning point. His leg continued to improve; for the first time, it responded to treatment and flesh started covering the wound. His shattered bones miraculously came together and the dead bone was formed again. He began to sleep peacefully and without pain.

“Thank You, Jesus!” He said and promised to commit the rest of his life for His service.

SHE WAS GIVEN JUST SIX MONTHS TO LIVE!
To Rauna Kakehongo, 29, from Namibia, the news that she had been diagnosed with stage 4 bone marrow cancer came like a ton of heavy bricks. Not even in her worst dreams could she have pictured herself faced with such a dreadful health dilemma at such a young age. For the first time in her life, she could see her vision of a great future – dream career and happy family, melt before her own eyes like a sweet dream that suddenly turns into a horrible nightmare.

Image

 

Rauna Kakehongo

It all started when she was admitted to the ICU because her lungs had collapsed. She was placed on life support and her blood had thickened. Not long after she was discharged, she discovered dark brown spots sprouting all over her body. Before she knew it, she was admitted again and with her strength waning by the day, a wheelchair provided her only support and means of mobility. Numerous tests were employed and with each, the outcome was devastatingly no better. Doctors discovered that she had excessive fluid and blood. Her spleen had enlarged three times its normal size. In a haste to stabilize her fading state, blood transfusion was quickly conducted. As fate would have it, her blood platelets refused to return to their normal count. To find out the cause of this, doctors conducted a bone marrow biopsy. They were forced to stop in the process due to excess loss of blood. The second biopsy was conducted while she was conscious, causing excruciating pain. Though braced for the news, the results were too sickening to the ear. She was diagnosed with blood cancer and stage 4 bone marrow cancer. She was given just six months to live.

Desperate to cling to a strand of hope, she opted to go for the incredibly unpleasant chemotherapy treatment. This caused her to lose all her hair and her stomach ballooned. As her condition deteriorated, she resigned herself to her fate, tearfully contacting her insurance company for funeral arrangements; the date was fixed for April 9th, 2014.

Rauna Kakehongo At The Prayerline

It was in this pitiful and frail state that she found out about Emmanuel TV. Encouraged by the testimonies she watched, she grabbed onto faith having run out of rope. Even though her tunnel was so dark, she could see a flicker of hope at the end of it. She pulled out all stops and against all odds arrived at The SCOAN, Lagos, Nigeria. At this point, her left side was half-paralyzed and she could barely stand. When Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her at the prayer line in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, she felt something was ejected out of her chest. That night, she slept peacefully for the first time since the onset of her sickness. The next day, to her surprise, her hair started to grow and her nails which had turned dark brown returned to a healthy pink – a confirmation of lifeblood flooding back to her strained form. As each day went past, she got stronger and felt better.

On her return to Namibia, she went back to the hospital for a test and the doctor confirmed that there is no cancer in her body. To prove beyond reasonable doubt, tests were conducted in four different hospitals, all confirming her healthy and cancer free. There is no amount of words and tears that can express her sincere gratitude to Jesus Christ, her Rescuer from death. Praise the Lord!

CONFESSIONS OF AN EX-LESBIAN

Miss Genevive Anyama was aged nine when she had a bizarre dream. She saw herself under water in a deep sea. Straight from that dream, an evil spirit had entered her. She developed affection for women and visited lesbian pornographic sites on internet. She had no affection for men but desired fellow girls. She was then living in India with her sister, a nurse, who also was having her own nightmares – having affairs in dreams, masturbating and clubbing. Away from the watchful eye of her parents, Genevive started dating fellow girls and living as a lesbian. They never went to church let alone read the Bible. Discovering what their daughters were engaging into, her mother would call them and urge them to watch Emmanuel TV. They would laugh it off because, to them, there was nothing wrong with the life they were living. Her mother was left with no choice but to summon them back to Nigeria by tricking them with a promise to travel to America. Instead, they were told they had come to be prayed for and get delivered. They were implored to start watching Emmanuel TV but found everything ridiculous. They would laugh when they saw people manifest on Emmanuel TV. It was until they came to The SCOAN and were arranged at the prayer line that the severity of their spiritual life was exposed. In that mighty battle between light and darkness, the evil spirit that had taken residence in them spoke out and confessed to having been responsible for her indulgence in the illicit sexual relationships. The evil spirits were cast out and the Holy Spirit took over. Delivered and set free, she no longer desires fellow women. The Bible has become her close companion and she no longer listens to worldly music. They advised, “Smoking and clubbing are not the joy of life but praying!”

MIRACULOUS INSTANT DELIVERY

While at the Prayer Line, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for Ngozi Nwokolo who had an overdue pregnancy due to a tight cervix. She was booked for an operation but had instead opted to come to The SCOAN for prayer, believing she would deliver her baby safely and naturally. A few moments after the prayer, she became incredibly uncomfortable and was rushed straight to the labour room. Within a twinkle of an eye, she delivered her baby safely and smoothly. Later in the service she and her husband came to testify to the extraordinary miracle Jesus Christ had done in their family. Glory be to God!

The service closed with Mass Prayer ministered by Prophet T.B. Joshua during which many people were set free from the bondage of the devil and received life anew in Christ Jesus!

 

 

PROPHET T The SCOAN, the Arena of Liberty has been a beehive of activities with worshippers pouring in from all corners of the world to fellowship with the Lord and mark a new dawn in their Christian lives. Coinciding with the birthday of the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua who was celebrating his 51st birthday on 12th June, The SCOAN was caught in a frenzy of celebration although the actual day of the prophet’s birthday was mild and moderate being a day dedicated to prayer for the nation, Nigeria and the world.Worshippers from all over the globe grabbed the opportunity to thank God for the life of the man of God who has selflessly served as a true patriot of the Lord’s kingdom.CROWD As part of the celebrations, the man of God held a special deliverance service on Friday for the thousands of international visitors who graced the occasion. The Saturday and Sunday services were also held and both demonstrated the beauty of depending on and serving the true and living God as the power of the Holy Spirit swept through the congregation to bring spiritual enrichment. The overriding authority of the name, Jesus Christ manifested itself through instant healings and deliverances. The man of God took the opportunity to introduce The New Anointing Water and Faith Bracelets which are yet to be made available to people for a more intimate relationship with God.   Earlier on, Wise Man Harry delivered the Word of God with a message titled: THE HEART WE POSSESS. WISEMAN HARRYThe wise man examined the way different hearts have their individual characteristics. He said, “We have different hearts with different ways of doing things. Hearts are not the same and thus the way they receive or resist the Word of God differs”. Adding more detail about the relationship between the heart and mouth, Wise Man Harry said, “Vain and idle talk is a product of a vain and idle heart because out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks”. His proof text was from Matthew 16:15 regarding the revelation of Peter acknowledging our Lord, Jesus Christ as the Son of God. He said that this was the kind of heart we should aspire to have that which is ever-believing, no matter the condition at hand.

TESTIMONIES The service was replete with amazing testimonies as hundreds of people came forward to share what the Almighty God had done in their lives. Below are a few of them.

FROM WHISKEY TO WATER – AN ADDICT’S TESTIMONY MR SAMSON LAWRENCE It must have felt funny when Mr Samson Lawrence Khumalo, a Zimbabwean living in Cape Town, South Africa, took his first sip of beer. Little did he know that down in the glass, a demon lurked who would turn his perceived joy into a total nightmare. It all started off in 1999 when he got shot at as a security officer. He realised that he should have come to God then but he went into drinking and mistook the ugly sneer of the devil for a smile. He used to compete with friends to see who could drink the most and still drive home. Sooner, his appetite became so appallingly strong that he soon became an addict. For 15 years, he walked from one joint to another futilely whetting the urge which never went. He would make plans but they would never see the light of the day. It affected him financially and those around him emotionally and socially. As a heavy drinker, he often would get hurt while consuming alcohol. Sometimes, he would discover that he had done something wrong like breaking a window or breaking a relationship. All these cost him dearly that he no longer found joy in anything alcoholic. He desired to quit but he found no magic wand to the problem. He got to the point of considering contacting Alcoholics Anonymous, a world renowned rehabilitation group. One day, he attended a family reunion where he saw his uncle, a well known drunkard, take only soft drinks and water. He was surprised because his uncle was a more notorious drinker than he was. Curious, he implored him to share his secret whereupon he was told about The SCOAN and the Anointing Water. Mr Khumalo began to watch Emmanuel TV. As he watched a mass prayer with his uncle, the uncle ministered the Anointing Water to him and, instantly, he felt a strange sensation run through his body and that marked the end to his agonising relationship with alcoholic substances. A man who could consume an entire bottle of whisky in one sitting, suddenly found alcohol repulsive and disgusting. He said the last beer he bought, several months ago, was still sitting in the fridge, unopened and untouched to the glory of God. Not that he nurses lingering temptations to go back to it but as evidence that when Jesus delivers you, you are delivered indeed!

MR JOSEPH MATALA

HIS NAME IS JOSEPH JUNIOR! – A HAPPY DAD AFTER 17 YEARS OF BARRENNESS Mr Joseph Matala and his dear wife found themselves squeezed between a rock and a hard place where only Jesus could save them. His wife had fibroids while he had a low sperm count, rendering the couple unable to have children for 17 years. A national of DR Congo but living in South Africa, Mr Matala and his wife had gone to even the most expensive specialists and Chinese herbalists to get a solution to their infertility but there was no change. It caused him so much trauma especially when one day, his biological mother told him that she would not die in peace because she had not seen his children. No assurance could calm his mother’s concerns. This was a bitter memory that lingered in the back of his mind, accompanying his unsavoury condition of barrenness. The repercussions followed him wherever he went. Anytime he was applying for things and had to fill out forms or take interviews, he would be asked questions like, “How old is your first child” which would send him on another downward spiral of depression. Tired of trying, he suggested to his wife that they went for adoption. His wife encouraged him that God was still alive and would give them a child. “When you have a problem and you become tired, it is then that the power of God is close to you,” he said. After all those challenges, the couple decided to partner with Emmanuel TV. To their greatest surprise, an Anointing Sticker was sent to them in the post. Unknown to him, this was how his story would begin to change. The Anointing Sticker meant so much to him and his wife that they cut it in two and each kept their own part on their person anywhere they went. They did this so that if either of them lost theirs, they would still have the other one to pray together with! They prayed to God to bless them so that one day, they too would go to the church to testify of how their problem had been solved. His wife then missed her period. He was happy but this had happened many times in their 17 year struggle without the corresponding result so he didn’t make too big a deal out of it. They went to do a pregnancy test and just like that, his wife was confirmed to be pregnant. Today, they have a two and half month old baby boy – Joseph Junior. He advised that the power of God in the Anointing Sticker is as powerful as that in the Anointing Water. In their case, they did not start heckling the headquarters that they had not received the Anointing Water, they just prayed with the Anointing Sticker, believing that it was God’s answer to the question of the barrenness in their lives.

DIVINE OPERATION RESTORES WOMAN’S SIGHT “I am healed. I can see, thank You, Jesus!” It was a cry of joy as Miss Charlie Alexis Richards from USA – once blind, finally received her full sight. It was a priceless thing to have happened to her considering the opposition she had encountered on her way to The SCOAN. The moment she made up her mind to come to The SCOAN to be prayed for after all medical help at leading hospitals in the USA had failed, people tried to discourage her. They told her she would just waste her money. Right at the airport in America, she discovered that her feet had become swollen. Not only that, her baggage was routed to a wrong destination. Everything appeared to be working against her trip. But her will to seek the face of God was so strong that she could not allow any detractors stop her. Her faith was not without reason. Before coming to The SCOAN, she had a dream. In that dream, she was in the church auditorium. Everything looked the same but there were no chairs. Then, she saw herself in a line of people. MISS CHALIE ALEXIS RICHARD[3The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua called her to come forward as she was late. She went forward to the front and what looked like a hospital came down upon her. Inside, she saw surgical tools of all kinds all around the walls. Afterwards, a man came to her and said she could see the screens in front of her. She instinctively replied that she could not but the man insisted that she could and when she tried, she found out that MISS CHALIE ALEXIS RICHARD[5]her blind eye could now see the objects in front of her. Finally, finding herself at the prayer line of The SCOAN that historical day last Saturday, she witnessed the launch of the New Anointing Water through which she was to be set free. She explained her experience under the power of the Holy Spirit: “As soon as the Anointing Water fell into my eye, I felt like something was moving in my blind eye. I lost control. I could not find a hand to hold and fell to the ground”. Unknown to the human eye and those that were in her vicinity, a divine operation was taking place just as MISS CHALIE ALEXIS RICHARDshe had experienced in her dream. After a few minutes, her eye popped open, darkness disappeared and to her inexpressible joy, she was able to see the man of God clearly for the first time. In the Book of Isaiah, it was foretold that when Jesus Christ would come to save us, the lame would walk, the dead would be raised and the eyes of the blind would see. The age of miracles has not passed; the Miracle Worker is still alive. His name is Jesus Christ.

 

 

 

MR EFFIONG EDET EFFIONGCALL HIM HONOURABLE – THE STORY OF A FORMER MOTORBIKE RIDER Mr Effiong Edet Effiong, now answering to the title ‘honourable’, perfectly described his former life as one that had been ‘manhandled, ruffled and squeezed not just by poverty but abject poverty’ which bread anger, frustration and aggression. He was a motorbike rider, riding a jalopy assembled in a makeshift fashion by various roadside mechanics. He would leave home in the morning and after working all day in the blistering sun, come home with nothing, day after day. Most of the money he gained, he would have to spend on repairing the bad motorbike. Like many making a hard living on the unfriendly streets, he developed the bad habit of smoking. As a rider carrying people from one place to another, he heard so many stories, some of them strange. One of them was about Prophet T.B. Joshua, the man whom people said was performing miracles.  Some said negative things about him. He was confused and one day decided to ask his wife if she had heard anything about the prophet. Her answer was an emphatic, “Yes” and that she had actually seen him preach on Emmanuel TV through the black-and-white television in his house. His wife insisted he came to The SCOAN despite any nasty or discouraging stories he might have heard. He resignedly agreed and came to The SCOAN using money borrowed from various friends. So desperate was he that as he was coming, he said to himself, “I will roll on the floor outside the church if necessary just to get seen by the man of God.” He knew that he would get solution and was not ready to go back with the same problems. He sat in the canopy and “sang louder, danced faster and prayed harder than anybody else.” Such was his belief that this was the end of his life of hardship. Having received the Anointing Water and Stickers, on his way back to his state, he prayed to God, “If You are the One who created the Heavens and earth, please, do not let me continue riding on this bike again”. Mighty miracles started happening. His state launched a poverty alleviation project and he was one of the lucky few given a brand new vehicle for business. His joy was so much that he slept for two days in the car before going home. The same man from the state Governor’s Office called him for a big contract not long after and he was able through this venture to register a company. He enrolled at school and successfully passed his OND and HND qualifications which were far off dreams for him to achieve in his former position of poverty. One contract after another came his way and he was able to buy a property. He is now a proud home owner and the employer of 14 staff. He stopped his wife from selling fish and bought her a personal car. His influence in the state became prominent and was encouraged by a friend that as God was with him, he should stand for election in his local government. He won the position. A few weeks later, the chairman of his local government gave him the gift of another brand new car. “I came to share this testimony to give others hope that if a motorbike rider could be elevated to the position of an honourable member of the local government, your position would soon change as long as you continue to believe and trust in God!” He testified.

 

MRS ONUCHE MARIAM  I GAVE BIRTH WITHOUT FALLOPIAN TUBES From a human and scientific view, Mrs Onuche Mariam was not to ever have children. She had barrenness that had humiliated her for five years. This was as a result of an ectopic pregnancy during which led to the removal of her fallopian tubes. This scientifically made it impossible for her to get pregnant. As a lecturer, she loved children but would be troubled to see that she did not have her own. Still, she believed in God that one day she would conceive. Her brother told her not to believe man’s opinion but to seek God’s. He collected her medical report and took it to The SCOAN for prayers. When he returned home, he gave it back to her and said, “God has changed your report!” Meanwhile, she was introduced to Emmanuel TV and, during the Candlelight Service crossing over from 2013 to 2014, she prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. That night, she had a dream in which the man of God told her she would come for a testimony. The following month, she discovered that she was pregnant. Now, she came to give that testimony and standing with her brother before the congregation, she displayed her six-month pregnancy to the glory of God who had re-written her medical report and made possible what doctors had said could not happen.

MR KWASI TETE ASIEDU[2]INTRUDING NEBULISER MACHINE SACKED He came carrying his nebuliser machine in his bag. Much as it sustained his life during sleep in those hours of difficulty in breathing, he detested the whole idea of having to strap a mask over his face for the rest of his life. Without it, he ran the risk of sleeping and not waking up again. His wife rightly called it the ‘intruder’ for its inconvenience during intimacy. So, Mr Kwasi Tete Asiedu, a Ghanaian living in the UK, carried the MR KWASI TETE ASIEDU[3]intruder all the way to The SCOAN, praying that Jesus Christ would relieve him of the burden and hand him and his wife a new lease of life. For 12 years, he had suffered sleep apnoea – a potentially fatal sleeping disorder. He would have difficulty taking in oxygen and would snore loudly. In the morning, he would be too tired to carry out his daily activities. In recent months, he was introduced to Emmanuel TV and saw other people receiving healing of similar problems. MR KWASI TETE ASIEDUThat put faith in his heart to come to The SCOAN to receive his own touch. He was arranged on the prayer line and was very privileged to be one of the first few people to receive a spray of the New Anointing Water. Under the instruction of Prophet T.B. Joshua, one of the evangelists ministered it to him, in Jesus’ name. For the last time, he removed the nebuliser machine’s mask from his face. His breathing became completely normal. Since then, he sleeps like a baby without using the machine. “If you are sick, come to Jesus; He is the Healer,” he said, now free from wearing a mask to bed.

 

 

 

BLIND AND BLEEDING EYE RESTORED

PRINCESS FELIAN ASSAM Princess Felian Assam Czesnat, a Cameroonian residing in Germany, was chatting with her brother on Skype one day when he alerted her to a trace of blood running from her eye. Unsuspecting of anything serious, she went to the mirror and horror stared back at her. Pure blood was running down her eye. She called an ambulance but when they got to the hospital, the doctors did not see anything wrong with her yet she could not see, walk or write. The eye kept bleeding. At a point, the eye started coming out and they had to give her an eye patch to keep the eye firmly in place and from getting contaminated. Then, it was discovered that the problem was from the nerves in her eye. Alerted to her scary predicament, her father bought her a ticket to come to The SCOAN. Her case had deteriorated so much that she couldn’t see even the time or date of the flight on the ticket; all she knew was she was travelling to Nigeria from Germany. Arriving at The SCOAN, she listened to a testimony of a lady healed from blindness after receiving a spray of the New Anointing Water. The testifier had told of how during the ministration into her eye, she had felt a warm sensation and something like a worm moving in it. However, when the New Anointing Water was sprayed on Ms Czesnat, she did not feel the same. In fact, only a few drops had landed on her face. She considered this not to be enough. Her sister assured her to believe and put her faith to work. Back at the hotel the following morning, her sister alerted her to the fact that her eyes were no longer bloody as they had been the previous day before the Anointing Water was sprayed on her. “Leave me alone, I am a blind woman,” she shouted back. However, on her sister’s insistence, she called for a mirror and behold; the eye that was once full of blood and completely blind, was clear and she could see. She confessed her healing and when she was given a book to read, Ms Czesnat did so convincingly. Unlike the first time when she came to The SCOAN led by her sister, she came without any assistance. She walked by herself and faced the camera, smiling.

WE RAN OUT OF ROPE AND GRABBED UNTO FAITH Honourable Ladi Oko from Benue, Nigeria suffered from multiple fractures of the ankle after an accident. She had to use a pair of crutches to be able to move around. She could not carry out her daily activities.HON LADI OKO Her family members had to help her to the bathroom before she could have her bath. She went to many hospitals and herbalists in search of solution but could not find any. The doctor even said that she would need an operation but the doctor was not sure how the operation would affect her leg. The family decided to bring her to The SCOAN where she was placed in the prayer line and Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her in the power of the Holy Spirit. Immediately after the prayer, she felt a sensation in her body and was able to walk freely without the crutches to the glory of God! Now, she can do everything by herself, drive her car, walk around and even run for the glory of God! The family advised viewers to trust in God Almighty.

 

46 YEARS CRIPPLING PAIN WIPED AWAY AT ONCEMRS GABRIELLA FILAK[3] Mrs Gabriella Filak, from Hungary in Eastern Europe, suffered excruciating pain with which she woke up with tears every morning. It started when she was born that the doctors said she was unlikely to survive as she only weighed just over a kilo. When she was very young, she fell on a rock with her hip and the pain started from there. She had to use a metal frame to move around. The doctors were able to diagnose that she had tuberculosis in her hip and spine. She went for an operation whereby the doctors intentionally broke her leg to try and reattach the leg properly to the hip but the operation was not a success. Over the years, the situation became worse. She was no longer able to lift up or play with the children where she worked in a nursery school because of her painful condition.MRS GABRIELLA FILAK[2] She had suffered this for 46 years. It got to a point that the doctors told her that there was nothing more they could do for her. One of her sisters who speaks English told her about the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua and encouraged her to come to The SCOAN to receive her healing.MRS GABRIELLA FILAK She was filled with faith and came in the name of the Lord. When she was at the Prayer Line, Prophet T.B. Joshua touched her three times and told her she was free to walk. She immediately began to walk and even burst into a run as she discovered that all the pain which usually hindered her movement had vanished. She described the experience as if it had been God Himself embracing her. At last, 46 years of crippling pain have been ended by the power in the blood of Jesus Christ. During the service, when the New Anointing Water was ministered to her, she felt like her entire body was being stretched and straightened out as she fell on the floor and vomited. Now, she feels new and refreshed and can walk like a normal person. She explained that previously she felt like her body was twisted and had to drag her left leg behind her as she walked but that was all a thing of the past since the prayer of Prophet T.B. Joshua. It was an amazingly glorious service day which ended with mass prayers where every demonic based problem was exposed by the light of God to the joy of all!   Emmanuel – God with us!

 

Prophet TB Joshua

Prophet TB Joshua

The supernatural power of the Holy Spirit is incontestable and when the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua moved among the congregants last Sunday, calling upon the name Jesus to free them from the grip of satan, heaven opened, the Holy Spirit took charge and The SCOAN turned into a mighty battleground where light subdued darkness as chains fell off people’s lives. Commanding every demonic hold on people’s businesses, finances, careers and marriages to loose, the anointed man of God reminded the worshippers of their rightful position before God as His children and, therefore, deserving of excellence. What followed was the great manifestation of satan’s defeat with many people vomiting blood and poisonous substances – evidence that the wicked stranger in their lives had been banished and that the Holy Spirit had taken over residency. Just as many people had been healed and delivered through the new Anointing Water the day before; thousands were set free on Sunday as it was ministered to them. Prophet T.B. Joshua then proceeded to minister healing and deliverance at the prayer line where hundreds of people from all over the world had gathered in search of Divine intervention in various aspects of their lives. Shedding light on the Faith Bracelet, an evangelical item which is worn around the wrist and is due for release soon, Prophet T.B. Joshua said: “It is to help you confess who you are in Christ Jesus and reset the state of your heart. Your relationship with God depends on the state of your mind. You may not talk but your heart is talking all the time. All kinds of things go through your heart. When you are sitting in the church, you are supposed to keep busy. If your heart is disturbed, you can pray, ‘Oh God, reset my belief. I want to be stable. All doubt, fear and unbelief – flush it out, Lord. I want to be right. Renew my strength.’” Earlier, Wise Man Daniel preached an enriching message titled: BE CONSCIOUS OF CHRIST’S PRESENCE, a call on Christians not to listen to the temptation to act out of character but to identify their source – Jesus Christ – through positive thinking, talking and acting. Picking his proof text from Mark 14:37-38 and other scriptural references, he said:

Wiseman Daniel

Wiseman Daniel

“When Jesus Christ told His disciples to ‘watch and Pray’, He equally meant to tell them to let their minds rise and seek the things that are above. Without the active cooperation of the mind, the Spirit has no means of expressing itself. It means that the Spirit expresses itself through the mind. Remember, God’s Word refreshes our minds while God’s Spirit renews our strength and it is acting on the Word that builds faith in the heart of the believer. Therefore, if this mind must cooperate with the Spirit, it must be taught to concentrate upon things of the Spirit because our mind must be our servant and not our master. One thing is clear here, if you would have a strong and intelligent prayer life, your mind must be your servant and not your master because our communication in prayer is imperfect unless it is aided by the Holy Spirit. Therefore, it is most essential that the mind should be made spiritual in order for it to be alert at all times. In other words, the mind must be made spiritual in order for it to be conscious of Christ’s presence at all times.”

TESTIMONIES

The day was not without the great testimonies that characterise worship here at The SCOAN. Hundreds of people turned up to glorify God for the great miracles He had performed in their lives. Here are a few of them:

A JAW-DROPPING MIRACLE!

Isaac Lenity

Isaac Lenity

Before

Before

Isaac Lenity was brought by his mother Agnes to The SCOAN in a terrible condition. He had a severely swollen jaw which caused the young boy excruciating pain and discomfort. Unable to sleep and barely able to eat because of the rapidly increasing swelling in his jaw, Agnes desperately took her son to various hospitals. The prognosis was grim: at his tender age, Isaac needed to undergo an operation. It was at this point that Agnes decided to bring her young son to The SCOAN for prayer. The results were extraordinary!

As Wise Man Racine prayed for Isaac, the intense pain immediately disappeared. Within three days, the swelling had miraculously reduced and Isaac was back to his playful, boisterous self. He began eating, sleeping and living freely! Isaac’s sister Deborah explained more about the severity of her young brother’s condition, adding that the family could not even touch the affected area as it was so sore.TESTIMONY (2) Immediately after prayer at The SCOAN, she testified that the pain her brother was passing through daily, disappeared, the swelling following suit shortly afterwards. The jubilant family encouraged people to put their trust in Jesus Christ, knowing that there is no mountain He cannot move.

MASSIVE DELIVERANCE FOR ZAMBIAN COUPLE!

Mrs Emelda Mbewe & husband

Mrs Emelda Mbewe & husband

Mrs Emelda Mbewe and her husband suffered massive problems. For two years she had severe abdominal pain while the husband was addicted to drinking alcohol for 21 years. The pain in her was so awful that she had to run from one hospital to another but could find no solution. This affected her job as a social worker. She could not do house visits to her clients. Many scans were done on her but nothing was identified as the cause of the mysterious illness. Meanwhile her husband was passing through severe problems of alcohol addiction, consuming between 28 and 48 bottles in a day. This made him angry most of the time. His wife was always in tears when there seemed to be no solution to the addiction in her husband’s life while she was at the same time having an inexplicable illness. She was a woman squeezed between a rock and a hard place. After everything had failed, the couple decided to come to The SCOAN, believing that only God could set them free. They were prayed for and given the Anointing Water. Soon after ministering the Anointing Water, she felt a sharp pain and when she went to the rest room, a massive and strange object fell out of her. She also vomited for about 30 minutes. Just then, the pain left her and she became well again, the problem having been flushed out of her system. While she was celebrating, her husband who had also ministered the same Anointing Water, woke up the following morning feeling light and with no feelings to go and take alcohol. Since that time, he has been free from alcoholism, all the urge having disappeared. To his wife, he is now the man she had always wanted him to be. They came to share that great testimony of how they received their deliverance and healing through the medium of the Anointing Water. Praise God!

HEALED OF HIV/AIDS FOR OVER 15 YEARS

1+ 2+When Mrs Abisoye Sokoya tested positive to the deadly disease of HIV/AIDS 1 and 2, she concluded that the end had come. As the psychological shock of the diagnosis set in, so did the physical symptoms as Abisoye began emaciating and experiencing pain throughout her body. Fearing the worst, Mrs Sokoya knew that her case had gone beyond medical remedy; she decided to seek Divine intervention, having heard of The SCOAN. As Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for Abisoye, she uncontrollably began to move backwards and eventually fell to the ground under the power of God. It was as if new life was breathed into her frail body and immediately, the weakness and symptoms that characterised her sickness disappeared! Steadily regaining strength and basking in her newfound freedom, Mrs Sokoya boldly decided to return to the hospital several months after receiving prayer. The results confirmed what she already knew based on the radical transformation in her body – she was negative to the deadly virus of HIV/AIDS! Maintaining the mighty miracle for the last fifteen years, Abisoye advised people to be faithful to their spouses and to God, stressing that the first place we should prosper is in our spiritual lives!

I WAS FEEDING FROM HAND TO MOUTH

Princess Rose Nwady who studied Business Administration was facing a severe case of business failure such that she could not boast of even having 500 naira to her name. Her once flourishing business suddenly collapsed.

She was virtually living from hand to mouth; begging from friends and relatives to survive even though people around her thought she had a lot of money working as a Petroleum Marketer who was once known for her opulence. She incurred a lot of debts, making her life miserable! Having tried her hands in several spheres of spiritualism to no avail, she decided to come to The SCOAN where she received the Anointing Water and Anointing Stickers from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. On leaving The SCOAN, God gave her the inspiration to start a new line of business – road construction; and without much ado, contracts started flowing in! She placed the Anointing Stickers on the concrete mixers and trucks while constructing the roads. She also ministered the Anointing Water. Amazingly, she won six new contracts for road construction. As a result of God’s blessings in her life, she was able to build a three storey building and shopping mall! Now she has contracts worth millions of naira and is blessed to bless others. She now buys clothes for widows and helps the poor and needy. Praise God!

PANCREATIC CYST FLUSHED OUT

Mrs Lydia Joseph

Mrs Lydia Joseph

Doctors had written off Mrs Lydia Joseph’s case as irresolvable. The abdominal pains she was experiencing were so severe and yet, when she got to the hospital with all hopes for solution, all the doctors told her was that her case was unredeemable and that she had to live with the problem for the rest of her life. A scan had established a pancreatic cyst. She was forced to stay away from many daily jobs, including household chores. Everything was being handled and done by her husband, an evangelist. It was in the midst of this huge dilemma that the two decided to seek higher power, power from above – the Almighty God. They came to The SCOAN where they received the Anointing Water. Back home in India, they ministered it and prayed in the name of Jesus Christ and behold, the pain simply eased and disappeared completely. Another medical checkup at the hospital confirmed that her pancreas had been restored while the disease was destroyed miraculously to the shock of the medical doctors! It was nothing other than the medium of the Anointing Water which she applied daily on her body! She encouraged people to have faith, that the moment they stepped their feet in The SCOAN, their solution was as good as guaranteed.

EMMANUEL TV IS NOT ACTING!!!

Theatrics! That was what Mr Sebastien Kanga Kamdem thought of Emmanuel TV upon his initial viewing. He scoffed at the deliverances and healings he witnessed, perceiving them to be akin to film acting. However, a time came when T.B. Joshua was praying on Emmanuel TV and Sebastien decided to pray along and see for himself what would transpire. To his greatest shock, Mr Kamdem began coughing up some poisonous substances. What he saw happening on Emmanuel TV had now manifested in his own bedroom!

Sebastien Kanga Kamdem

Sebastien Kanga Kamdem

Skepticism gave way to faith and the Cameroonian forestry engineer decided to visit The SCOAN, accompanied by his sick mother. A touch from God at The SCOAN revived his mother’s frail condition and her healing further solidified his faith. Before then, despite his PhD credentials and vast experience, Sebastien had been experiencing stagnation and limitation in his career as an engineer. Twenty one years without promotion weighed heavily on his heart. Receiving the Anointing Water, he returned to his base in Gabon and began ministering it. Shortly afterwards, a remarkable job opportunity came up for a highly coveted position in his country. Despite no political weight behind his application, something he thought was essential to even be considered for the position, Mr Kamdem and two others were narrowed down from a shortlist of 32 candidates. The final three candidates went before a panel of 17 judges who overwhelmingly voted in favour of Sebastien! He proudly declared that he is now the Executive Secretary for the Network of Protected Area of Central Africa, a position that puts him in charge of ecological governance in eight African countries. He advised people to watch Emmanuel TV with the eyes of faith and not allow cynicism or skepticism to stand in the way of the blessings God has in store for viewers worldwide.

A PRAYER THAT CHANGED PROFESSOR’S LIFE

Madam Agnes Njabili

Madam Agnes Njabili

Madam Agnes Njabili knows what it takes to live in pain. The Professor of Education, who is currently lecturing at the University of Dar-Es-Salaam in Tanzania, suffered from rheumatoid arthritis and hypertension for 12 horrible years. Taking a daily cocktail of drugs to try and subside the numbing pain, her teaching career was severely inhibited by the steadily deteriorating condition in her body. Forced to leave her post at the University of Namibia due to the adverse weather conditions that aggravated her condition, she returned to her base in Tanzania. As a lecturer, Prof Agnes was unable to actively interact with her students because of the pain and even relied on the support of her students to climb up stairs to where her office was located. A blood pressure machine was her daily companion as she constantly had to check her levels, especially before doing any public presentation.
However, Prof Agnes’ story changed when she decided to seek the face of God and visit The SCOAN. She described a remarkable experience in the prayer line.

As Prophet T.B. Joshua approached her, he used his leg to physically lift up her own leg and a soothing heat radiated throughout her body. Strength entered her body as she stood up and began to run! In a miraculous moment, God healed her completely from the rheumatoid arthritis and hypertension.
Prof Agnes explained that ever since that Divine encounter, her blood pressure has been normal and all the pains associated with her arthritic condition have disappeared! She has fully resumed her professorial duties without any hindrance from her health! She advised people worldwide to trust in God.

 

GUN BULLET DISLODGED AFTER 30 YEARS OF FAILED MEDICAL CURE

BEFORE PLACARDWithered, Mr Fabian Isaac Idika’s leg looked lifeless to the natural eye. That he was able to limp and hop, was only by the grace of God. Now a retired Assistant Superintendent of Police in the Nigerian Police Force, he was a victim of a gunshot that entered his leg and lodged there. He had been on duty on the fateful day when armed robbers opened fire on him and his colleagues. Some of his friends died on the spot while the impact of the shot sent knocked him to the ground. Everyone feared he was dead but, with a faint hope that there could be some slim chance of survival, he was rushed to the hospital where he was resuscitated. His leg hung limp under him and he felt a searing pain run through him. He watched his leg swell and even though he was discharged from hospital, he still had the bullet in his leg. The doctors had failed to remove it and the leg deteriorated into a full-blown leg ulcer. He could do nothing on his own even bathing was a dreadful ritual he could not handle. For 30 years, he carried the bullet in his leg with no hope that one day it would come out.

SCOAN Prayer Line

SCOAN Prayer Line

All medical and scientific solutions exhausted with no solution, he came to The SCOAN where the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, prayed for him at the prayer line and declared his healing in the name of Jesus Christ.
Back at the hotel where he was lodging, he ministered on himself the Anointing Water which he had received. Instantly, his leg started itching on the spot where the bullet had entered and to his utter surprise, the bullet and screws from a previous attempted medical operation fell out. TESTIMONY (1) TESTIMONY (2)Since that time, he has regained his strength and mobility. He is now blessed with a new job as a security officer with a private company, the problem that had ended his career, having surrendered to the healing power of Jesus Christ. Marching for God in front of the congregation, he advised people to trust in the healing power of Jesus Christ.

 

 

 

MANHOOD COMMANDED BACK TO ORDER!

Mr Segun Omotosho

Mr Segun Omotosho

It is a man’s worse nightmare. The erection of Mr Segun Omotosho refused to descend and he had to lift up his loosely-worn trousers in his hands – a futile attempt at creating some comfort that never came. Excruciating is the best word to describe the pain the married man was passing through. After several days without any respite, Segun felt there must be a spiritual element to his embarrassing condition. Resolving to visit The SCOAN, a word of prophecy exposed the unusual circumstances behind this bizarre case. Prophesying before the congregation, Prophet T.B. Joshua revealed his exact problem, adding that this problem started after Mr Omotosho cheated on his wife with a light skinned lady. He received prayer in Jesus’ name and fell to the ground. As he fell, so did his manhood! Following the prophecy and prayer, Mr Segun confirmed that the permanent erection became a thing of the past. He tacitly advised married couples to be faithful to their spouses, acknowledging that it was the act of adultery that opened the door for satan to afflict him. Mrs Omotosho joyfully testified that her husband was a new man after his deliverance at The SCOAN. He had previously accused her of infidelity, even insisting she swore an oath of innocence! She was shocked, upon coming to The SCOAN, to prophetically learn that her husband was in the fact the one who had been unfaithful! The testimony was capped off by Mr Omotosho’s mother singing in her local dialect, praising God for her son’s miraculous recovery! The service closed with mass prayer from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, during which he also prophesied to individuals and nations.

ONLY GOD KNOWS TOMORROW!

PROPHET T B JOSHUA

PROPHET T B JOSHUA

Last Sunday came with its glory and passed with great splendor to mark yet another special day at The SCOAN when God was worshipped in the beauty of His holiness during the Live Sunday Service. Not even the heavy rains could dampen the spirits of those who had braved the downpour to attend the service and have an encounter with our Lord, Jesus Christ. The sound of thousands of believers praying together, thundered like the roar of raging waters, in The SCOAN sanctuary where those under the bondage of satan were to be set free for the salvation of their souls. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, excited the already elated congregants and millions of Emmanuel TV viewers across the world when he touched on the issue of the new Anointing Water which he said would be made available soon.

Explaining the reasons behind the new Anointing Water, he said, “I want to see everyone being healed and delivered. This is my desire. When you receive it, I want to see you coming back to share your testimony. It is possible. Even if you don’t have faith, you will be healed immediately. It is like when you don’t believe that a snake can bite. Later, if it bites, you believe that it can bite. This is what will happen to the next Anointing Water.With Christ, all things are possible.”

WISEMAN CHRISTOPHER

WISEMAN CHRISTOPHER

The man of God then prophesied to the congregation before proceeding to minister healing and deliverance at the prayer line where people from various parts of the world converged for the touch of the Holy Spirit. Earlier, Wise Man Christopher delivered a compelling message titled, TOMORROW IS A MYSTERY, highlighting the uncertainty of man’s life and how only God Almighty determines the future.

Likening life to a flower which blossoms for a while and withers sooner, Wise Man Christopher said no one knows by the present signs or situations what the future holds for him but God. As such, he said, Christians should not exclude God in their decision-making but watch and pray. He enthused: “Those who exclude God today in their plans or battles are certainly not prepared for tomorrow. There is no excuse for being surprised at the uncertainty of coming events because God has purposely left us in the dark concerning future events. When I say, ‘today is our own, tomorrow is not’, this does not mean we should not make thoughtful and watchful provision for the future, nor does it consist in unnecessary anxiety or worry about tomorrow. It only stresses our need to involve God in everything we do, to trust Him and His Kingdom and free ourselves of worry about tomorrow. Does worrying about tomorrow guarantee one’s future? Only God can.”

He explained further: “The blessing of the world is a fading thing; so is the life upon which it is bestowed. But the blessing of God enriches our soul for eternity. Therefore, the rich should not concentrate on their wealth, while the poor should not concentrate on their misery. Let their minds rise and seek the things that are above, because Jesus has risen. It is by this attitude that we can detach ourselves from the lure of worldly possessions. Remember that treasures on earth have their habit of disappointing their owners as they don’t offer permanent security.Only treasures stored up in Heaven are permanent and secure. They retain their value because they are under God’s own security. Let’s focus on serving God so that we can be sure of tomorrow. When we are in God’s strong arms, we can confidently say, ‘Yes, I will be around tomorrow.’ ”

TESTIMONIES

Scores of people came forward to share their testimonies of the great things God has done in their lives. Here are a few:

SIGHT RESTORED AFTER 40 YEARS

MRS. CELINA GODFREY LYIMO

MRS. CELINA GODFREY LYIMO

As an accountant, the last thing Mrs Celina Godfrey Lyimo from Tanzania would ever want to experience in life is bad eyesight. But right from her childhood, she had seen the seed of this trouble germinate in her life as she could not see the chalkboard clearly while in school. Her vision was extremely poor and, as a result, she could not write fast enough and had to oftentimes copy from her friends. At the age of 15, she went to the hospital where they gave her spectacles which she would change every few years. She has worn glasses for the last 40 years. When she did not wear them, she would not be able to function normally. As an accountant, it affected her career because she spent a lot of time on anything she read. Realising that she could no longer rely on glasses, Mrs Lyimo, now 55 years-old, decided to seek permanent healing from the great Physician, Jesus Christ. She came to The SCOAN last year where she was prayed for and received the Anointing Water. Back to Tanzania, she ministered it into her eyes and went to sleep. To her amazement when she woke up the following day, her vision was clear without even putting on her glasses. To prove her total and permanent healing, she read out loud to the viewers without her glasses.

“Trust in the Lord; nothing is impossible for Him,” she said.

 

ONCE IMPOTENT, NOW A FATHER

MR. & MRS. GANI OLUKOYA

MR. & MRS. GANI OLUKOYA

Mr Gani Olukoya was impotent and profusely having bad dreams including sleeping with women regularly as soon as he closed his eyes in bed. With this type of problem, even if he got married, he would not be able to have any children. His fears were confirmed some time later when he visited the hospital and tests were carried out on him. To make matters worse, the doctors could provide no solution for his condition and this led him to visit herbalists, moving from one witchdoctor to another. His pursuit to find solution at any cost, took him many spooky places where strange things happened. One day, he read in the newspaper about a powerful spiritualist and decided to try his luck. When he met him, he was told that he had to sleep inside an iroko tree. Desperate for a solution, he wasted no time thinking over it and then, followed through with it. In the middle of the night, the witchdoctor told him to ask for whatever he wanted. After the ritual was accomplished, the witchdoctor told him that his request had been granted. But, behold, solution never came as his life remained stagnant and was gradually wasting away in the same obscure lifestyle.

He had to visit another spiritualist who gave him a charm and words to recite at midnight. He was told that whatever he saw in his dream that night would be the solution to his problem. After following the instructions of the witchdoctor, he drifted to sleep and had a dream in which he saw the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. Excited, he went back to the witchdoctor and described the dream he had. The astonished witchdoctor told him that what he had seen could not be the solution and that they should try the ritual again. However, when Mr Gani reflected on the dream and the situation at hand, he decided to find out more about the man he saw in his dream – Prophet T.B. Joshua. One of his friends, who had been to The SCOAN and received a touch from the wise men, encouraged him to visit.

He told himself this was going to be his last destination. He came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water. Immediately after ministering it, he felt a strange sensation all over his body. Not long after, he received his miracle. He noted changes in his body and had the belief that he was indeed healed. Not long after, he got married and three months later, his wife was pregnant. His wife holding the bouncing baby boy, David, in her arms, came with her husband to praise God, knowing that it is only Him who could have performed such a miracle.

Mr Olukoya warned people who are suffering from his former ailment not to waste their time visiting spiritualists, but to run to God.

“If you meet some challenges in life, be persistent until you get your miracle from a right source,” he said.

PAULINA CANON

Pauline Canon, a Nigerian living in France, was living a normal life until one day tragedy hit. She discovered suddenly that she could not see with one of her eyes. Part of her face was completely paralysed. At that time, she remebered that her brother also had the same problem. Scared, she realised this could be a generational curse. She went to the hospital where she received the shock of her life. The doctors told her the nerve behind her eye was actually paralysed. They bandaged the eye and as the doctors examined her with facial exercises, they found one side of her face was totally paralysed. In light of their discovery, they immediately broughta wheelchair for her to sit in. She could not even eat, talk or even open her mouth well. Her mouth had twisted to one side. The more the doctors explained to her about the problem, the more worried she became because she realised the seriousness of her dilemma andshe became depressed. As the problem progressed, she could not even feel the right side of her body. One day, she decided to pray along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV and, immediately, she felt some sensation in her body and surprisingly the dead nerves came back to life. On her own, she removed the bandage on her right eye and she discovered that she could see.

After three continuous days of praying with Prophet T.B. Joshua, she was completely restored. No more paralysis was seen; her face was back to its original position.. The doctors were still sceptical and told her the paralysis could happen again. They put her under observation for four months but it has been two years since that time and there has been no sign of paralysis. She is now able to eat, smile and even sing to the glory of God.   She advised, “Distance is not a barrier; just believe.”

 

BREAKTHROUGH AFTER 7 YEARS!

ENGINEER TEMPLE AUGUSTUS

ENGINEER TEMPLE AUGUSTUS

From Akwa-Ibom State, Nigeria, Engineer Temple Augustus was in the field of electrical engineering but the job he was doing was not in the specific area he had been trained. This limited his progress as he needed more training to be promoted. Unfortunately, the company he worked for did not offer the kind of training he needed. While his colleagues were being promoted to higher levels, he remained in the same position. New recruits would come, he would train them until they got their promotion but he would not be considered. He had become an object of ridicule and, instead of sympathising with him, people at work coined and conferred on him such titles as chief, guru and landlord. He suffered like this for seven years until one day, he decided to take his problems to God. He came with his wife to The SCOAN for The Candlelight Service held on December 31, 2013. He prayed with Prophet T.B. Joshua as he declared that the New Year was a year of destiny. He received the Anointing Water and Sticker that night and went home to pray with them. He had already given up on ever being trained by his employer and decided that he was going to go abroad to train in his field. He went to the US embassy to get a visa but he was denied. He was frustrated but believed that God was working out a solution for him. One month later, he received a phone call from his boss advising him that he had been selected to go for training in his preferred field. Specialists from Germany came to train them and after that, he was promoted. Thank You, Jesus!

 

ALCOHOL AND SMOKE MAKE ME SICK!

MR. FOLUWA UKUTI

MR. FOLUWA UKUTI

Addicted to smoking, drinking and clubbing for 16 years, Mr Foluwa Ukuti described that time period as wasted. He worked hard to earn a living as a supplier of sand for the building industry but there was nothing he could point at. For 20 years, he could not even develop a piece of land he owned. All the money he made was poured into these woeful addictions – women, beer and smoking. All this bothered his wife who had to stand his aggressiveness which came along with his smoking and drinking. She hardly enjoyed her life as a married woman. Knowing that God is the solution provider, they came to The SCOAN, received the Anointing Water and ministered it by faith. Instantly, he felt something leave his body and was very light afterwards. He discovered that the next time he went to the beer parlour, the smell of alcohol alone made him nauseous and even cigarette smoke was not a pleasing odour to him like before. Something great had happened in his life; he was delivered. Now able to save money which he had been wasting on clubbing, he was able to buy the materials to build a house and is now a proud owner of his own beautiful and spacious home. As if that was not enough, one night, his baby daughter stopped breathing and had turned pale. She was lifeless. He remembered the Anointing Water. Spraying it on her with a prayer of faith, she gasped for air and was instantly revived. Glory be to God!

 

FREE AT LAST: DISCONNECTED FROM ALCOHOL ADDICTION

MRS. GRACE GOBBO

MRS. GRACE GOBBO

It started in 1991. Mrs Grace Gobbo was drinking alcohol – six bottles of beer every weekday. On the weekend, she would drink every form of alcohol she could get her hands on including wine. Because of this, her Christian life was nonexistent. Her finances were suffering as a result because the money was going for alcohol. There was no progress in her life because all she could do was sit at home and drink and watch TV. She was not involved in anything to do with her family or the community financially because all of it was going towards her drinking habit. It got to a point where she asked her nine-year old son to go and get her alcohol as she was out but he refused saying that he was underage and he wanted her to quit.

One day in 2011, she discovered Emmanuel TV. She was sitting, drinking on the sofa while watching Emmanuel TV. She touched the screen of her television and began praying with Prophet T.B. Joshua that ‘Every chain that satan had used to connect her to himself should be disconnected; and whatever you must have eaten from the table of the enemy be flushed out!’ At that moment, she started vomiting again and again and was unable to finish the glass of wine she was holding. The next time she sat down on her couch with a glass of wine, the taste was not the same and she could not finish it. Since October 2011, she has not taken any alcohol and has been delivered from her alcohol addiction. Today, her life has taken a good turn and has been restored by Christ Jesus.

The service closed with the mass prayer ministered by the wise men during which many more people were set free from satan’s grip!
