DADDYWhat a splendid and glorious occasion it was for the multitudes that congregated at The SCOAN on Sunday! From the heavenly songs of glorious adoration that soothed broken souls and prepared the way for the anointing of the Holy Ghost, to the power-packed sermons, the beauty of the Lord was irresistible. It did not matter either whether one was worshipping through Emmanuel TV as millions of viewers do worldwide or using online mediums; the touch of our Lord, Jesus Christ, was unmistakable. As the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua launched a chain-smashing prayer against the kingdom of darkness, people could be seen vomiting blood and other poisonous substances the devil had deposited in them to breed sicknesses, disappointments, failures and other vices in their lives. They were declared free of their afflictions, in the name of the Healer and Deliverer, Jesus Christ.

The man of God also mounted the pulpit and delivered a powerful message that brought edification and comfort as people discovered the missing piece to successful and lasting relationships. Titled: NO PERFECT RELATIONSHIP, he urged all to exercise forgiveness at all times, saying, “There is no perfect relationship. Where I am weak, you are strong”.

 

Aided by scriptures from Romans 15:1-4 and Galatians 6-1, Prophet T.B. Joshua reproved the spirit of self-righteousness, saying such a relationship cannot last.

 

He explained: “The word ‘relationship’ means cooperation where people involved benefit or gain. What are we benefiting and what are we gaining? If one is weak in one area, he might be strong in another area. This means, we have our strengths and our weaknesses. We must recognise this in each other. Wife, you must recognise the weakness in your husband and his strength – the area of his strength and weakness. So also, you husband. We must recognise this for our relationship to endure and last.”

 

He added: “This is the secret of my humility. I know you deserve my respect and I also deserve your respect. If I first see you, I should first say, ‘Good morning’. That is what life is all about. Not, I see you but because I am a man of God, I don’t say, ‘Good morning’ and wait to see whether you will greet me or not. I know you deserve my respect, my honour and I too, deserve your respect and your honour. It is not one-sided. That is what relationship is all about. If you reject one because of his weakness, you also reject his strength. If you know your friend’s weakness, help him instead of rejecting him because a person who is a thorn in your flesh today may be your helper tomorrow.”

 
WM DANIELEarlier, Wise Man Daniel preached a life-transforming message titled, ‘God is Interested in Genuine Believers’. He encouraged everyone to be genuine believers and not the kind to whom Jesus Christ is the Lord only when the times are good – when there is money in your pocket. He declared that by His resurrection, Jesus Christ demonstrated that He is worthy of being the object of our faith and belief.

 

“It is never too late to start believing and obeying God’s Word. If we realise that our capacity to believe is not enough, we can offer prayers for faith and Jesus Christ will enlarge our spiritual coasts,” he said.

 

 

TESTIMONIES

Many people came out to testify to the glory of God of what He had accomplished in their lives. Below are a selected few of the wonderful testimonies. Be blessed as you read and do not forget that your testimony is just around the corner:

 

WASTE TURNED TO WEALTH

Life for Mr and Mrs Makgoba from South Africa was a complete contradiction. They were in a waste management business. Contracts were hard to come by and yet, MR & MRS MAKGOBA FROM SA (AW)even when they finally got one, they could not execute it. Firstly, they were not given the go ahead to start the contract for two years. Each time they tried to follow up on the contract, they would be told to wait. Secondly, they did not even have the waste management trucks needed to start the contract. Stuck between a wall and a hard place, Mr Makgoba decided to come to The SCOAN and seek the face of God. They prayed and received the Anointing Water and Anointing Stickers. Back home, they ministered the Anointing Water and prayed together as a family and within a short period of time, God blessed them. From one truck, they raised money and soon, they were able to acquire 13 brand new trucks with which they were able to carry out the contract. Their business has boomed and they are now employers of scores of people. A couple that was staying in a small two-bedroom apartment now have their own palatial building tastefully furnished on a large expanse of land apart from another 8.5 hectares of land already purchased for business purposes, after they had prayed and ministered the Anointing Water. It was a miraculous turnaround in their lives. They advised everyone to wait upon the Lord because God’s time is the best.

 

SAVED FROM BEING CRUSHED TO DEATH

That Mr Duru Ferdinand from Anambra, Nigeria is alive today, is not an ordinary miracle. It is an exceptional rescue by God’s power and one which has to be celebrated with thanksgivings to God; hence, he came to give the glory back to Him through this wonderful testimony, explaining how his life was miraculously saved from a fatal car accident. He was travelling in a public bus one day and following behind them, MR DURU FERDINAND FROM ANAMBRA (AW)was a very big truck. The brakes of the truck behind them failed, resulting in the truck crashing into their vehicle and crushing to death everyone travelling with him in the vehicle. Miraculously, only Mr Duru and a young boy sitting next to him were spared. Before he entered the ill-fated vehicle, he had prayed and ministered the Anointing Water on himself! He said that in those few seconds of near-death, all he noted was that his body was covered in diesel fuel. And to his horror, while he was still stuck in the wreck, he saw a flame of fire starting. He remembered his Anointing Water and with faith, he sprayed it on the fire and it was immediately quenched. Astoundingly, he was also able to sneak out of the wrecked vehicle and when the rescue workers arrived on the scene, they were amazed at how he had escaped alive. The young boy who was seated next to him in the vehicle also survived but had to be cut out of the wreck by the rescue services. Mr Ferdinand gave glory to God for giving him another chance at life. Thank You, Jesus!

 

 

CURSE OF HIV/AIDS BROKEN

Mr Matome Jonathan Mohale from South Africa sat patiently yet anxiously in the doctor’s office, waiting for the results of his blood test to be read out to him and when the doctor did, he had a shock of his life. He had tested positive to MR MATOMEHIV/AIDS 1 and 2.He was devastated, knowing that there was no medical cure to the disease. Given chance, he would have preferred to die than to continue living with the virus and watch himself edge to the grave. He desperately wanted to reverse the time back and avoid all the wrongs that had landed him in the predicament but it is never possible. The symptoms that had forced him to undergo the tests such as headaches, running stomach, dizziness and weaknesses, became worse and he was rushed to hospital. Unable to eat, he found himself on the sickbed, dependent on drips day and night.

 

A few months after his diagnosis, a friend encouraged him to visit The SCOAN. He was not too sure of this, questioning whether it was really possible for one to be cured of such a deadly ailment. He decided to give it a shot and, by faith, he arrived at The SCOAN. That was two years ago in 2012. Placed at the prayer line, Wise Man Harry prayed for him in Jesus’ name and he instantly felt relief. He later received counselling that restored his battered state of mind and was advised to stop blaming himself and instead receive total forgiveness from Jesus. On his return to South Africa, he was determined to live a new life in Christ and abstain from sexual sin; he began to change his pattern of living. He started to develop his relationship with God by reading his Bible every day. A few months later, he went for a blood test and to his profound joy, he was confirmed HIV/AIDS negative. He went to another government approved laboratory where they conducted advanced tests and he was also tested to be negative for HIV/ AIDS.

 

The doctors were surprised how this could be possible. They even asked him if he had visited spiritualists. He told them of his encounter with the Master Healer and Creator of all, Jesus Christ. He admitted his unfaithfulness to his wife and advised all men to remain faithful to their wives and not look for love elsewhere.

 

A final encouragement was for all not to despair or feel despondent but to put their hope in God who is able to reverse every disease and sickness, no matter how fatal.

 

 

I DERIVED JOY TO SEE MEN IN PAIN

Miss Christy Hangula from Namibia was living her life and growing up just like any innocent girl until she was seven years old when the devil hit. From nowhere, she just found herself masturbating. As she grew up, she could masturbate three times in an hour. This spirit of lust destroyed her affection for men. Each time she masturbated by crossing her legs a certain way, it would physically feel as if she was with a man.MISS CHRISTY FROM NAMIBIA [LUCIFER FACEBOOK]

Aspiring to be a model in her teenage years, she opened Facebook accounts on the internet where she marketed herself to potential clients and accepted an offer from a man claiming to be an Indian who said that he could give her an opportunity to be an international model. The man asked her to pose for him via webcam on Skype and do different poses for him in revealing clothes. As she stripped for him, she felt as if something had entered her and she started to receive evil powers and knowledge on how to seduce men. She started seducing men physically and by placing seductive pictures of hers on her Facebook account. She was on a mission to seduce and destroy men. She especially targeted those not interested in her. After seducing them, she would walk out of the relationships just to break their hearts. The evil powers in her eyes were a point of contact for the evil spirit and she could read the minds of her victims before even talking to them.

 

Thank God, she came to The SCOAN last week and received her deliverance from the evil spirit that tormented her. During her deliverance at the SCOAN prayer line, the evil spirit that was in her cried out and identified itself as an agent of lucifer. It also confessed to having been responsible for the wrong things she had done and that it was on a mission to destroy youth. Testifying to the congregation, she warned young women against falling into the trap of accepting offers from strangers on Facebook and other social media sites offering to pay for everything, including travel tickets and accommodation. She warned women that such people were trapping young ladies into posing for pornographic pictures. After her deliverance, she says she now feels free from the spirit of lust and no longer hates men. Having received the Faith Bracelet from the man of God, she is rapidly building her relationship with God each time she prays with it; Jesus Christ is now her best friend.

 

 

FIBROIDS FLUSHED OUT AFTER A FAITH BRACELET TOUCH

Mrs Ene Adeka, a civil servant from Benue, Nigeria was privileged to receive the Faith Bracelet when she visited The SCOAN during the period of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s 51st birthday in June. When the man of God gave her the Faith MRS ENE ADEKA [FAITH BRECALET]Bracelet, he spoke prophetically that the anointing would break every yoke in her life, including any fibroids. She claimed the prophecy by faith and began praying with the Faith Bracelet, believing that the blood of Jesus Christ would flush out every sickness from her system. She noticed that each time her arm with the Faith Bracelet touched her body, she would start shaking. Moments later, she desperately needed to go to the bathroom. On reaching there, what came out was a large mass of blood. It was shortly followed by two more large clots of blood. Instantly feeling relief from the pain and discomfort, she praised God and immediately photographed the flushed out fibroid for evidence in her testimony. Convinced beyond all doubts that she was healed, she returned to the hospital. A test was conducted and confirmed that she was truly free from all fibroids.

 

She encouraged all that self-deliverance is possible. Her son Ode Joshua Adeka who accompanied her for the testimony also received his deliverance on praying with the Faith Bracelet. He was delivered from stubbornness, nightmares and an evil spirit inhabiting his life. His mother testified that even before the Faith Bracelet touched him, he had begun to manifest. He is now a new person entirely. Her advice was simple: All you need to do is believe and meditate on Jesus Christ and His sufficiency while using the Faith Bracelet.

 

CONFESSION OF SCOAN VISIT IMPOSTERS

A couple from Zambia living in Swaziland made a shocking confession on Sunday. Faced with financial challenges, they tried to extort money from people desperate to visit The SCOAN. They placed an advert in the local newspaper advertising that they could facilitate visits to The SCOAN at a registration fee of $100 USD per person. When people started calling them asking whether they were official SCOAN group leaders, they would say they were, whereas The SCOAN was not aware of their activities. The SCOAN does not charge people for visiting the church. However, their ill-conceived idea to dupe people backfired. After placing the advert in the newspaper, their problems became worse and they had to start selling their property to make ends meet. They were even duped by a con man for the first time in their life after placing the fraudulent advert. One day, a man called and warned them to stop their dubious activities and they had to switch off their mobile phones. They confessed their wrong doing and asked God and the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua to forgive them. They advised people that they should be careful not to fall into the hands of fraudsters masquerading as official group leaders of The SCOAN. He said, “Those indulging in such fraudulent activities should refrain immediately because you cannot hide from the Holy Spirit.”

 

The service closed with the ministration of the New Anointing Water by the evangelists during which many were liberated from demonic forces.

DADDYWrapped in the anointing atmosphere of God’s presence, The SCOAN on Sunday oozed grace as the man of God;Prophet T.B. Joshua, mounted the altar and engaged the congregation on the important topic – forgiveness. The message, inspired by the case of a barren woman from Ghana who received her fruit of the womb after a prophecy by the man of God last year, stirred the congregation into self-reflection. In the prophecy, the woman was told to forgive her husband for his infidelity as the key to her overcoming her childless condition. Upon obeying the instruction in righteousness through the prophecy, she returned to The SCOAN heavily pregnant!

 

Explaining Jesus Christ’s words during His crucifixion, the man of God stated: “He never said, ‘Father, forgive him or her’ – He said, ‘Father, forgive them’. It shows you and I are included.”

 

He went on to explain the implications of un-forgiveness, saying, “If you look at the cause of your stagnancy – why am I not moving forward; what is happening to me; if I go up, I come down again, why is this trouble? Look at the issue of forgiveness. Something is holding you. By now, you are supposed to be at the center of your own world but something is hindering your joy. Ask yourself – what is that thing that is hindering my joy? When you are at the point of breakthrough, something takes you back again. When you have breakthrough, you will begin to experience discomfort, trouble here and there so that you will not enjoy that breakthrough. Something is somewhere hindering you, causing you pain. For 99% here, the answer is forgiveness.”

 

The man of God then proceeded to minister prayer at the Prayer Line to hundreds of visitors who had come from all over the world to worship at the arena of liberty. The sick were declared healed and those possessed with contrary spirits were set free, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!

WM CHRISTOPHER

 

Earlier, Wise Man Christopher delivered a powerful message titled: The Best Investment whose proof text was from Acts 9:36-42 – the story of a woman who was kind and good to the poor.

 

He reiterated: “The case of Dorcas reminds us as Christians that when we help or give, we are planting seeds that will be multiplied back to us in a hundred fold. He who helps others like Dorcas, is conscious of the future for he will find help if he ever falls into trials. If we say that we are Christians, all our concerns, aspirations and earnest heart desires must be subject to the Gospel by works of Charity. If you say that you are a Christian, then you are called to be a father to the fatherless, mother to the motherless, a son or daughter to those who are barren, benefactor to the needy, companion to the lonely and helper to the helpless. They are fatherless so that we can be their fathers. They are motherless so that we can be their mothers. They are lonely so that we can be their companions. They are sick so that we can care for them. When we do this sincerely, we make ourselves so valuable in the Kingdom of God that He will not afford to lose us. The secret of blessing is in giving; the secret of receiving is in giving as in Luke 6:38.”

 

TESTIMONIES

Below are a few of the many testimonies from people who came from all walks of life to glorify God for His goodness in their lives:

 

FORGIVENESS MAKES THE FUTURE POSSIBLE

FORGIVENESS PROPHECY JUDITH

 

When Judith’s phone rang, little did she know the call was about to spell turmoil in her marital home. A strange female voice on the end of the line informed the Ghanaian banker that she was pregnant for her husband. Shock, horror, confusion and betrayal! Words were not enough to depict how Mrs Marfo felt at that moment. Divorce was her immediate resolve. After looking for the fruit of the womb for many years, the news tore her heart apart. After much counsel and pastoral intervention, Judith eventually decided to remain in her marriage and feigned forgiveness to appease the reconciliatory parties. However, deep down in her heart, she had not released forgiveness to her husband.

 

After several years of seeking medical solution to her barrenness without solution, Judith decided to visit The SCOAN for prayer. However, as Prophet T.B. Joshua approached her in the service, the secret details of her marital challenges were unveiled through a profound prophetic message. Calling on Judith to release forgiveness to her husband, Prophet T.B. Joshua boldly stated that such action from the heart would result in her fruitfulness. Deciding to obey God and forgive, Judith testified that after the prayer from Prophet T.B. Joshua, it was as if a huge weight was lifted off her shoulders and heaviness was replaced by calmness.

 

Returning home to meet her husband, a few months later the prophetic promise had become an incredible reality! She was confirmed pregnant! Judith advised the congregation not to be hasty in taking drastic decisions when marital issues arise but rather release forgiveness and leave the battle for God.

 

MAN SET FREE FROM HIV/AIDS THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER!

MR KIVON HEALED OF HIV

Life suddenly turned black for Mr Kivon Orina Mariera from Kenya as the doctors announced the terrible news to him. The laboratory tests carried out on him had confirmed his fears. He was HIV/AIDS positive. Apart from symptoms such as high fever, general body pains and weakness that plagued his life, he suffered from emotional turmoil. All hope was lost, knowing that naturally, HIV/AIDS has no cure. He was giving up on life when he came across Emmanuel TV and started watching the cable with keen interest. He saw people healed of cancer and HIV/AIDS and told himself that his case would not be an exception. When a friend of his visited The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria, he brought him back the Anointing Water.  With faith, he ministered it in Jesus’ name and believed that his case had been reversed.

 

Instantly, he felt something ejected out of him. He also felt a sensation flush through his blood as if it was being purified. After a few months when the symptoms did not reappear, he went back to the same hospital that had confirmed he was positive but this time the result declared him negative to the deadly disease. Sharing his testimony live on Emmanuel TV, he encouraged all that nothing is impossible with God. The testimony gives hope to all especially as Prophet T.B. Joshua has just sent 4,000 bottles of the Anointing Water in a chartered private jet to Sierra Leone at the cost of $50,000 for people affected with the Ebola disease. Aside from this, TB Joshua and Emmanuel TV partners donated $50,000 in humanitarian aid to Sierra Leone in this troubled time.

 

PLETHORA OF SICKNESSES DEALT A MIGHTY BLOW

MRS CECILIA HEALED OF ASTHMA 1.........

Mrs Cecilia Murdock was born with asthma and soon, she had diabetes, osteoarthritis of the shoulders and knees coupled with sleep apnea. At the hospital, doctors said her lung was very weak to bring the carbon dioxide out. As a result, she had to take medication after every meal. In fact, life became so miserable that she could not leave her house without bringing her breathing machine. Her life depended on it, without which, she would wake up weak and very sick. With the problem of osteoarthritis of the shoulders and knees, she used to feel excruciating pain and loss of balance. This problem affected her body movement and eventually, cost her job as administrator in the UK. Concerned with her situation and seeing that no medication was proving effective on her, a pastor introduced her to Emmanuel TV.MRS CECILIA HEALED OF ASTHMA .........

Deciding to be free as she had seen on television, this woman who had been asthmatic since birth, made her long journey to The SCOAN to receive a divine touch. At The SCOAN Prayer Line, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her and commanded her to get up and since then, she has been healed from all the problems. She has stopped taking her medication. A million thanks are not enough for what Jesus Christ has done in her life.

 

BEDWETTING HUMILIATION SUCUMBS TO JESUS’ POWER

MR & MRS BANKOLE DAUGHTER [DELIVERED FROM BEDWETTING

Mr and Mrs Abraham Bankole were living in agony. Their daughter had been bedwetting from birth and so chronic had the problem become that the whole household was concerned about her. However hard she tried, every night she would wet her bed twice. Not only did the problem bring isolation and shame to her life but also hinder her from having an admission to go to the university. Her parents did every possible thing to root out the embarrassing affliction which also prevented her from sleeping over at friends’ places but all efforts yielded nothing. One day, after watching Emmanuel TV and listening to a testimony of someone who was set free from the same affliction, they encouraged her to pray along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. That marked the end to her problem! She was delivered from bedwetting and when the next university intake was announced, her name was on the admission list. Standing before the congregation, no amount of words could sufficiently explain the relief and happiness that now engulfs the Bankole family. It is all because of Jesus!

 

DOUBLE BLESSING FOR TANZANIAN COUPLE!

MR & MRS SIMON MANSION & CAR

When poverty struck Mr and Mrs Simon Tumbuka’s household, it was as if a terrible plague had been unleashed at the Tanzanian family. They could not afford even the most basic things let alone own a house to their name. Their efforts at entrepreneurship suffered a barrage of stagnation from every direction and badly needed solution which was nowhere in sight. Meanwhile, Mr Tumbuka had been chain smoking for 19 years. They told themselves, ‘enough is enough’ and came to The SCOAN where Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for them and blessed them with the Anointing Water. The transformation was spontaneous. Their sports equipment business took off with power and soon they experienced a boom with some of their merchandise sought from after from neighbouring countries. Completely transformed, they now order their goods from overseas and have built and owned an elegant mansion with a fleet of cars. To crown it all, Mr Tumbuka’s addiction to smoking left him and the urge is long gone. What a God we have to worship, what a Son we have to praise and what a future lies before us!

 

SAVED FROM TERRIBLE CAR ACCIDENT

MISS PRESILLIA NDUTA SAVED FROM CAR ACCIDENT

 

Her job involved frequent travelling and, as one who had made Jesus her protector and defender, she regularly ministered the Anointing Water to herself. Miss Presillia Nduta from Kenya also had Anointing Stickers placed on her car with the sole purpose of always being covered with the saving blood of Jesus Christ. One fateful day, she drove for a long distance of over 200km when, suddenly, one of the car tyres burst. She lost control and went on for about 500m. All she managed to do was call on the name, Jesus.

 

The car hit an electric fence before it finally rested on top of a tree, damaged beyond repair. She felt a shower of splinter glass rain all over her body while another piece flew into her eye. The rescuers had to cut down a few trees in order for the remains of the car to be brought down. When finally she was pulled out of the wreckage she was miraculously unharmed save for the glass in her eye which had to simply be washed out without causing any damage. She came to The SCOAN to testify to this great work of wonder and miracle. Glory be to God!

 

HEALED OF MULTIPLE ILLNESSES!

MR ISAAC ANANG HEALED OF LUMBER SPON..........

Mr Isaac Anang had lumbar spondylosis, arthritis of the hip and a liver problem. He could hardly sleep due to excruciating pain to such an extent that even his friends had given up hope on his survival. At one point, his doctor encouraged him to go for a medication in Cuba. However, when he got to the hospital, he discovered that everything in the medical store room from where he was meant to be treated had been gutted down by fire. This, he told himself, was not ordinary. The more he waited, the more his condition worsened. His friends had even stopped visiting him, believing that there was nothing else they could do for him – all hope was shattered. One of his friends took him to The SCOAN for a heavenly touch that would bring suffering to an end. He was placed on the prayer line and was prayed for by Prophet T.B. Joshua. Instantly, he felt the years of affliction and bondage loose their grip on his fragile body and began to exercise himself anew! Back home in Ghana, he went for a laboratory test and was confirmed free of all the ailments. Indeed, if millions are to believe, they must see proof that Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever.

 

 

 

 

UTERINE FIBROID, MISCARRIAGES FLUSHED OUT

MRS ABIGAL DUBE HEALED OF FIBROID

Mrs Abigail Dube had irregular menstrual cycles and when she did have one; she would bleed profusely and become weak due to loss of blood. During this time, she endured two miscarriages. When her cycle came, she would be depressed knowing how bad she would bleed. When she visited her doctor to determine the cause, a scan revealed to her dismay that she had a uterine fibroid and that it was this problem that had caused her miscarriages. When a friend was coming to The SCOAN, she asked her to bring the Anointing Water for her to use. She ministered it to herself, declaring her healing in Jesus’ name. Immediately, she felt light and her bleeding subsided. When she went back to the hospital, good news was awaiting her. The fibroids had been flushed out. Her appetite which was long gone returned and she could now eat. Praise God!

 

The Sunday service closed with the ministration of the New Anointing Water during which many people who got in contact with the medium were set free by the power of the Holy Spirit and in the name of Jesus Christ!

The glory of God was an evident illumination that radiated and glowed on the multitudes that congregated at The SCOAN last Sunday and, in His infinite mercy, brought salvation, healing, blessings, breakthrough and deliverance. Engaging the worshippers who had come from all over the world, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua tasked all to be good citizens, saying, “Good Christians make good citizens for that which makes us good Christians such as – do not lie, do not kill, do not steal, also makes us good citizens.”

PROPHET T. B. JOSHUA

PROPHET T. B. JOSHUA

He encouraged all to honour the laws of their countries, saying, “Be proud of your country and God will be proud of you.” The Prophet then ministered prophetic messages to individuals in the congregation and every chain satan had used to connect them to himself began to break, in Jesus’ name.

Moving to The SCOAN Prayer Line, he ministered prayer in the power of the Holy Spirit and those whose bodies were burdened with sickness and disease received healing. The lame walked out of wheelchairs and discarded their crutches and walking sticks while the possessed were set free from the evil spirits that held them captive. Those who once felt far from God were made near through God’s Word and by His Spirit. The Anointing Water was then ministered to everyone in the congregation. Truly, this was the day the Lord had made for His people to rejoice and be made glad in it.

WISE MAN RACINE

WISE MAN RACINE

Earlier, the congregants received an inspiring message from Wise Man Racine, encouraging all to be forward lookers in a message titled: Be Forward Lookers. He said each time we try to move forward, satan is there to remind us of our unworthy past in an attempt to provoke our guilt and tarnish our future. To be forward thinkers, he said, is to follow the condition God lays down as it says in Isaiah 43:18-19. “No one is too good or too bad to qualify for the grace of God. Therefore, stop thinking and talking on the level of your old life. Jesus never considers your past to determine your future. He accepts anyone who comes to Him in faith, even those who previously rejected Him, those who previously sinned against Him. Don’t look back. Look forward to Christ Jesus,” he admonished.

 

 

TESTIMONIES

Testimonies poured forth from those who had come to appreciate God for His goodness in their lives through the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua and various mediums such as the New Anointing Water and the Faith Bracelet. Here are some selected testimonies:

OVARIAN CANCER OBLITERATED!

When Mrs Lieza Ayom from South Sudan was diagnosed with fibroid, she became depressed but the real devastating news was yet to come.  She was found to have ovarian cancer and a combination of the two was a painful and cumbersome burden for the Australia-based woman. She could not walk and had no strength for her to live a normal life. She was in constant pain and soon became a common face at various hospitals. At one point, she bled continuously for three weeks and was put on chemotherapy.

MRS LIEZA AYOM

MRS LIEZA AYOM

As her condition deteriorated, doctors operated on her and removed her uterus while trying to rid her of the cancer but all yielded nothing. When her cousin heard of her predicament, he was shocked and rushed to The SCOAN, believing there is no sickness our Lord, Jesus Christ cannot cure. He received the Anointing Water and sent it to her in Australia. By this time, her whole body had started to close down. Soon after she started ministering in the name of Jesus Christ, everything that had to do with her health began to recover. The doctors had earlier told her that if she would recover it would take at least two years but within the period of two months she was restored back to her original condition, in good, perfect health. She boldly displayed her medical reports of her health status before and after ministering the Anointing Water. The report after administering the Anointing Water showed there is no more evidence of cancer in her body.

RESCUED FROM AN OPERATION

MRS ACHA JULIET ATUH

MRS ACHA JULIET ATUH

Mrs Acha Juliet Atuh had delivered her first child through an operation and was booked to deliver the second child the same way. Doctors said if she was to deliver naturally, the baby would rupture the uterus and she would bleed to death and the baby too, would die. When she insisted, the doctor told her that if she wanted to go through natural delivery, she would have to sign a document stating that if she died in the course of the natural childbirth, the doctor and hospital would not be held responsible. Faced with such a dilemma, she wasted no time but flew immediately to Nigeria to attend The SCOAN. The night before the service, she saw Prophet T.B. Joshua in her dream, praying for her and she fell down under the power of the Holy Spirit. When she woke up, she ran to the church where she was arranged on the prayer line. With her faith strengthened, she returned home and continued to pray over her pregnancy with the Anointing Stickers. The next morning, she felt signs of labor and went straight to the hospital. Three doctors gathered around her, preparing for the worst but were shocked when the baby miraculously came out naturally with no complications! It could not be understood by the doctors because it was beyond their knowledge and imagination. Jesus is real!

 

TESTIMONY IS MY NAME

For four years, Mr and Mrs Joseph had been facing barrenness. Each time his wife became pregnant, she would miscarry.

MR & MRS JOSEPH

MR & MRS JOSEPH

Making matters worse, one pregnancy turned out to be ectopic and she had to go through an operation for the baby to be removed. After this, the couple decided to come to The SCOAN for solution. They were placed on The SCOAN prayer line and received deliverance in Jesus’ name. Shortly after that, to the glory of God, Mrs Joseph became pregnant for her husband. To secure the pregnancy in the name of Jesus and the fire of the Holy Ghost, they decided to minister the Anointing Water throughout the pregnancy.  To their great joy, the baby survived and Mrs Joseph gave birth safely to a bouncing a baby girl! To give glory to God for turning their test into a testimony, they named their beautiful little girl, Testimony!

 

OVARIAN CYST FLUSHED OUT

From Cameroon, Miss Mbong Claudine had been experiencing pain in her stomach for over a year. It was so severe that she could not sleep or rest. At the hospital, she went through a medical examination which revealed that she had an ovarian cyst.

MISS CLAUDINE MBONG

MISS CLAUDINE MBONG

The doctor told her that she was very young to have a cyst and advised her to seek her parents’ permission for an emergency operation to remove it. She told the doctor that she was a viewer of Emmanuel TV and would not accept that diagnosis. She left the hospital and showed the results to her mother. The mother, who was not a viewer of Emmanuel TV and did not believe, told her not to waste time but to go for the operation. She instead took the situation as an opportunity to demonstrate to her mother the power of the living God. She had the Anointing Water and prayed, asking God to give her a testimony. She sprayed the Anointing Water in her mouth and on her stomach and that night she slept like a baby. In the morning her mother commented on her peaceful sleep. She told her that it was as a result of the Anointing Water and told her she was healed. To prove her healing to her doubtful mother, she returned to the hospital for another test. The test revealed that the young woman, who was told her situation, was too severe and needed urgent operation, was now perfectly free of any ovarian cyst!

US VISA IN TWO MINUTES!

MR GBENGA AWODOKUN

MR GBENGA AWODOKUN AND MOTHER

Mr Gbenga Awodokun had been attending school in the UK but needed to change and move to the US. However, every time he applied for the visa, he was denied. After complaining to his mother, she collected the Anointing Water from The SCOAN and sent him. He prayed for God’s mercy and favour, in Jesus’ name. To his joy, he was soon accepted to the University of Cincinnati, College of Engineering and Applied Science. The officers at the University told him that it would be difficult to get the visa from Nigeria but that he should still try. Remembering what God had already done for him, he prayed over his application with the Anointing Water. When he arrived for his visa interview, he observed that each interview lasted no less than 45 minutes. He continued to pray with the Anointing Water and when his turn came, they spent only two minutes with him and issued his US Visa. He came to The SCOAN holding his passport replete with visa and University of Cincinnati papers. He advised viewers to always believe in the name Jesus Christ and not give up when things appear impossible. To God is the glory!

 

HOW GOD KEPT ME ALIVE AFTER A TERRIBLE ACCIDENT: FAITH BRACELET TESTIMONY

Mrs Consolata Ngimbwa, a chairperson of the Contractors Registration Board in her country, Tanzania is a regular visitor to The SCOAN. During Prophet T.B. Joshua’s 51st Birthday this year she was in attendance and was blessed with a Faith Bracelet. Back in Tanzania, she would use it to meditate on the Word of God.

MRS CONSOLATA NGIMBWA

MRS CONSOLATA NGIMBWA

One day, she and some government officials including the Minister of Works were on an official visit when her car encountered a terrible crash. A car had appeared from nowhere and was trying to overtake a couple of cars including hers not knowing that another vehicle was coming from the opposite direction. In the confusion, her car was hit and it somersaulted three times before it landed heavily, upside down. A crowd of shocked onlookers quickly gathered around the car, believing anyone inside the vehicle would be dead. Praise God, Mrs Ngimbwa, who had been counting her faith prior to the accident, was alive and holding her Faith Bracelet! The rescue services quickly came and pulled her out of the wreckage to the hospital. To their surprise, she was not hurt in any way. She was nevertheless rushed to hospital. As the doctors started to remove her Faith Bracelet to put a drip on her wrist, the Minister of Works who was with her and had seen how God had kept her alive through the evangelical item, warned them off, saying, “You can remove everything including her underwear, but don’t tamper with that [the Faith Bracelet]”. She advised people that once they receive their Faith Bracelet, they should not play with it but use it effectively to meditate on God’s Word in every situation.

The service closed with the ministration of the New Anointing Water to the congregation which also witnessed the presence of the Holy Spirit with diverse manifestations of deliverances and breaking of evil yokes. Stay blessed!

 

 

TB JOSHUA It was an atmosphere of serenity at The SCOAN last Sunday and one that radiated the magnificence of God’s glory. The awesome power of the Holy Spirit was thick in the church’s auditorium as the choir broke into a Heavenly chorus of worship, calling on God’s anointing to rain down. As the church joined in, lifting their voices to the Heavens, the gates of anointing swung open. The evangelists ministered the New Anointing Water and no one could escape the fire of the Holy Spirit as demons were cast out and people set free in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, ministered to the congregation for the first time in two weeks after a successful crusade in Columbia, South America. He thanked the congregation for their prayers which he said, had contributed to the good success of the revival.

 

WISEMAN HARRY Earlier, Wise Man Harry preached a life-changing message titled: Get Prepared for Christ. With proof text taken from Mark 10:17-22 – the story of ‘The Rich and the Kingdom of God’, he said: “Many seem to desire to know what they must do to receive from God but are not prepared to do it. As a child of God, you need to know that life is not fun and games; it is a warfare where only the spiritually minded are victorious. If you truly love God, nothing should be too small or too big to give out for God’s sake. The rich young ruler seemed to desire his duty but he was not prepared to do it. He seemed to desire to know what he must do to enter the Kingdom of God but he was not prepared to do it. His love for wealth and riches here on earth surpassed his love for Christ. Do not let this happen to you today!”

 

He concluded, “If we exclude God today in whatever plans we are making, we are guilty of the sins of arrogance and self-sufficiency and certainly, we are not prepared for tomorrow. This does not mean we should not make careful, thoughtful and watchful provision for the future, nor does it consist in unnecessary worry and anxiety about tomorrow. We should recognise who we are before God, realizing that He is God and we are not, that He is the Father and we are but children, that He is a Shepherd and we are straying sheep”.

 

TESTIMONIES

Thanks to God’s grace, many people lined up to testify to His goodness in their lives. Below are just a selected few. We hope they will help build your faith and you will find reason to thank God for the gift of life!

 

COLOMBIA FOR CHRIST!

The great revival led by the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua in Colombia which took place this July shall certainly go into the record books as God manifested His love and power to the people of the South American continent. After a two-day crusade at the Olympic Stadium and a Pastors’ Conference, Prophet T.B. Joshua and the Emmanuel TV Team purchased thousands of dollars worth of foodstuffs, supplies, meals, drinks and medical supplies for single mothers and their children. Huge packages of supplies were distributed, one for each family. Medical doctors were also on hand to assist with basic medical needs of the children, citing difficulties due to malnutrition among the young population. The event put smiles on the faces of the young children of Colombia as Prophet T.B. Joshua went further and pledged to provide scholarships for those in need.

The man of God was also invited to address members of the Colombia National Police Force and representatives of the Ministry of Defence, where he received an award of recognition for his service to humanity, especially in Colombia. He dedicated the award to widows and widowers whose spouses had died in line of duty, providing the country security. He then donated US$100,000 to the police for social welfare to take care of the infirm, wounded, and children with special needs. Prophet T.B. Joshua then encouraged the police to remain dedicated to their job and offered to partner with them through prayer for the security of Columbia, assuring them that the divine hand of God would be with them as they fought for peace.

FROM ABJECT POVERTY TO BENEFACTOR

MR EMMANUEL [ AW BREAKTHROUGH ] Mr. Emmanuel was, in his own words, a reject of his community. Nothing he laid his hands on ever prospered and he was in such abject poverty that his own wife walked out of the home, taking with her the children. No one wanted to associate with him anymore and it was at this peak of despondency that he came to The SCOAN in search of divine intervention. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, gave him the Anointing Water and told him to go home and start believing. Immediately, he started to pray with faith and ministered the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name. Shortly after that prayer, he received a call from the government and was offered the consultancy job which he had previously applied for. This marked the start of his breakthroughs that were to write his ‘from-grass-to-grace’ story. With a life anew, he aspired to buy new land and have his own home. He wrote to his employers and surprisingly, they agreed to pay him upfront. It was very unusual but he had the backing of the mighty hand of God. He was able to purchase land for an estate and was able to build a mansion. He now has a fleet of expensive cars and is engaged in works of charity – reaching out to those that are in need. He showed pictures of his elegant home and the sleek cars he now drives. He advised people to put their trust in God and to remember those that are in bondage.

 

KIDNAPPER’S BULLET WAS ‘FASHIONED’ BUT COULD NOT ‘PROSPER’!

MR OKECHUKWU

MR OKECHUKWU

When a Nigerian businessman, Mr Okechukwu decided to set up a small factory in his home town, he became a target for mischievous individuals. Notorious criminals were monitoring each of his movements and, believing he must be rich, they ambushed and kidnapped him. They took him to an isolated place where they were keeping other victims. He feared for his dear life. Not sure what to do, he removed his bottle of the Anointing Water from his pocket and started ministering it on himself, calling on the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua to come to his rescue. This annoyed the kidnappers who ordered him to stop his utterances. At one point, out of rage and having failed to intimidate him, one of the kidnappers fired a shot at him but the bullet missed him. He kept the bottle of the Anointing Water in his pocket and continued to pray.

Angry, the kidnappers took him to an underground apartment and demanded N10 million from him at gunpoint. He told them he did not have such money. Suddenly, a village vigilante who was passing by spotted the gun-toting kidnapper. Fearing that he had been spotted and that the villager would raise alarm, the armed kidnapper started to shoot at the vigilante, wasting all his bullets in the process. The kidnappers then took Mr Okechukwu to another location in the depth of the forest. There, God gave him a chance and in a split second, he escaped from his captors. The following day, the kidnappers called his wife to go and collect Mr Okechukwu’s car at a particular location where they had abandoned it. When husband and wife retrieved it, they realised that the Anointing Stickers were on it. Thanking God for his escape and his life, Mr Okechukwu advised people never to doubt God’s ability.

SPIRIT OF ALCOHOLISM SURRENDERS TO BREAKTHROUGH!

ALEX AHMADU

ALEX AHMADU

Mr Alex Ahmadu from Kaduna, Nigeria was passing through a patch of hardship in his former life. Things did not improve even when he decided to relocate to Lagos in search of greener pastures. He got a job but life remained miserable. He was drinking heavily and all the money he made went down the drain. It wasn’t until he discovered Emmanuel TV that he saw light and accessed his turning point. He installed the channel in his house and started to exercise his faith by praying with the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. Every time the man of God declared calmness in lives of viewers, Mr Ahmadu would claim and confess it. One day, in his dream, he had an encounter with the man of God who prayed for him and delivered him from the spirit of alcoholism. When he woke up the following day, he discovered to his surprise that the urge for alcohol had left him. The very smell of alcohol he once loved and savoured, he now hated. Since that time, he stopped drinking and started experiencing breakthrough in his life. Through the money he was able to save now that he no longer spent it on alcohol, he has been able to buy land and build a big house. Not only that, he has two cars also. He thanked God for transforming his life and advised viewers to believe in the liberating power of Jesus Christ! For Mr Ahmadu, a million words are certainly not enough to say, “Thank You, Jesus!”

 

I DESTROYED MANY MEN AND MINISTERS OF GOD!

MISS PAULINA

MISS PAULINA

Miss Paulina from Equatorial Guinea rushed to The SCOAN last week, praying to be delivered of something she was not sure of. All she knew was that things were not working out for her in a very weird way. She had had two marriage disappointments, lost a baby through asthma and faced serious setbacks in her career. So, sitting in The SCOAN last Sunday, she patiently waited for her turn as the evangelists ministered the New Anointing Water. Pandemonium erupted, however, the moment a shower of drops landed on her face. The otherwise calm face changed to annoyance and anger. The stranger hiding in her was exposed and identified itself as Lucifer. The enemy could not stand the mighty hand of God and screamed out and confessed to having been responsible for Miss Paulina’s nightmarish life, from the age of two. It was eventually commanded out in the name Jesus Christ to the cheers and applause of the congregation.

Testifying of her great deliverance on Sunday – seven days after her deliverance – Miss Paulina said she was 12 years old when the demon caused her to be raped by a neighbour. From that rape incident, a battle line had been drawn between her and any male who came her way. She became hell-bent on destroying any man she could. She had powers in her eyes and any man who looked into them would have feelings for her; that would be the end of their success in their education, career, marriage and finances. The next time she met them, they would be reduced to beggars. She had power to afflict men with the spirit of masturbation simply by speaking to them on the phone. Many ministers of God had been destroyed through her when she either slept with them or told lies about them just to ruin their ministries. If she went to church and people were being delivered, the evil spirit in her would tell her whether the pastor was powerful enough to deliver her. The moment a minister of God laid a hand on her, she would look into the pastor’s eyes. In her heart, she would be mock them, knowing that they were signing the end of their own careers. In addition to this, she had a spiritual husband who afflicted her with the spirit of anger. That was until her mother introduced her to Emmanuel TV and she decided to come to The SCOAN.

Narrating her experience of what she had felt like when the Anointing Water was ministered to her, she said, “I felt strange. I felt hot. I was on fire and I became so angry!”

Thank God, she was delivered and since that Sunday, her life has transformed. Jesus Christ has taken custody of her soul and calmness and peace have returned to her life. She no longer has the heart to destroy men. She advised people to run to God when they have any problem and the youth to be careful with internet.

 

DEMONIC STRONGHOLDS DEMOLISHED!

FAITH BRACELET

FAITH BRACELET

Numerous youth came forward to testify of the liberation they received in Jesus’ name through the medium of the Faith Bracelets. The first youth, Godswill Ossai, said he used to have a spiritual wife who was so overpowering that he could not even scream whenever she came to him. When he woke up he would feel devastated. This affected his spiritual life; he could not pray or read the Bible passionately. This continued for a long time and affected his academic life. When he received his Faith Bracelet, he started to pray and meditate in the Word of God. In a dream that night, he was kidnapped and found himself in a car with a strange woman donning long hair. He surprisingly remained calm and miraculously found himself out of the car, dragging the woman by the hair. He was calling on the name Jesus fluently, which he had never been able to do in previous encounters. The woman cried out in terror and disappeared in a burst of flames as he spoke the name of Jesus Christ with boldness. Ordinarily, when he had an encounter with the woman and he woke up, he would be terrified. Not this time. He was smiling, knowing that the battle was over and won! Since then, he has not encountered the spiritual wife and is free. He now reads his Bible and prays with devotion.

For Benedicta, she was suffering from a spiritual husband and had affairs in her dreams. As a result, she used to have lustful thoughts every time she saw a boy. When she received the Faith Bracelet, she was strangely angry. She did not like it and did not want to put it on. However, she forced herself to pray with it and discovered she had been set free. In a dream that night, the giant man came to attack her but he could not do anything. That marked the end to her nightmares and encounters with the notorious evil man.

Another youth, Philip, had the spirit of theft and anger. From a young age, he began stealing people’s belongings and in dreams, he would see himself in a mortuary or casket. The consequences were immense. He was experiencing backwardness in his life and became a young man saturated with anger. Concerned, his parents took him to many churches for deliverance but nothing worked. When he received his Faith Bracelet, he started praying and meditating on God’s Word. Since that time, the nightmares have become a thing of the past and he no longer has the urge to steal.

Another youth, David, was addicted to playing games. Any money his mother gave him to use at school, he spent on computer games. At night, he would encounter the people from the games but this time, instead of winning as he did in the physical, they would fight him and beat him up so severely. In the morning, he would be angry and a spirit of stubbornness soon developed in him. He stopped listening to his mother and would go out and come back late in the night. All this came to a grinding halt when he received the Faith Bracelet. He started to count his faith, asking the Holy Spirit to take more of him and give him more of Himself. Since then, the urge for games is long gone.

All youths urged their peers to give their life to Christ as one life for Christ was all they had and that one life was so dear.

The service closed with the ministration of the New Anointing Water during which many more souls were liberated and saved. Glory to God!

 

 

Last Sunday was another spectacular encounter with our Lord, Jesus Christ as He manifested His supreme power over evil through the mighty move of the Holy Spirit to set His people free. Congregants at The SCOAN were left awestruck after watching a few clips of the miracles God had performed in the nation, Colombia through His anointed servant as multitudes of people walked free of satan’s grip in the Southern American country. It was humbling to see people who had come to the crusade on wheelchairs, stand up and walk home on their own two legs. All these were shown to the congregation and their faith was boosted up so much that soon they experienced their own encounter. As the evangelists ministered the New Anointing Water, every trace of darkness was exposed and evil spirits expelled out.

WISE MSN DANIELEarlier, Wise Man Daniel preached to the congregation a powerful message titled: ‘Hold Fast To Your Confession Of Faith’. As a Child of God, he said, it is important to know that ‘God’s Word is the tool in the hands of the Holy Spirit to nurture us and to furnish us with all we need to succeed on earth.’

“When we realize that we can never rise above our confession, we are getting to the place where God can really begin to use us. Christianity is called the great confession. The law of confession is that, I confess that I have a thing before I consciously possess it,” he explained.

Picking his proof text from 1Samuel 17:44-45 and 49, he said although Goliath never confessed defeat, he found himself in the realm of defeat because his confession was not in harmony with God’s Word unlike David whose confession came from faith and as a result ‘the course of the battle went in the footprint of his confession.’

He expounded, “By faith, David confessed victory against Goliath and it became a visible reality. This clearly shows that, as Christians, what we speak becomes a visible reality in this natural world as we constantly hold fast to our confession of faith. To hold fast to your confession of faith is to say what God said over and over, until the thing desired in your heart and promised in the Word is fully manifested. In other words, confession is saying what God has said in the scriptures – saying the same thing the scripture has said. It is simply agreeing with God. Our Lord Jesus Christ evidently walked in the light of His confession. Therefore, our faith follows in the footprint of our confession. That is, our healing, deliverance, blessing, victory or breakthrough follows in the footprint of our confession.

TESTIMONIES!

The following are a selected few of the many testimonies that glorified God and exalted His Holy name:

LIFE-THREATENING EPILEPSY BANISHED WITH PRAYER
ADEOLA KESHINRO  MOTHERMrs Keshinro’s daughter, Adeola, had been suffering from epilepsy for seven years. Her case was chronic. When under attack, she would lose her senses and fall to the floor. She would then shake uncontrollably and injure herself by, among other things, chewing on her tongue. Because of this problem, she was unable to perform in school and had to drop out. They visited many hospitals and herbal clinics but doctors were unable to provide solution. “Everywhere we heard the name Jesus, we went,” said the 22-year old.

Sad to say, many of those calling the name Jesus were not true men of God but petty spiritualists. They would ask for money and demand materials such as fowls or rams for sacrifices. At one place, the little girl was made to stay in a tiny, damp and windowless room for weeks until her mother realised this was not the way out and took her away. In another instance, a man calling himself a pastor asked if the girl was a virgin. When the mother said, “yes”, he told her he must sleep with her as a way of expelling the sickness from her body. Mother and daughter took to their heels. At another place, the mother was told to travel into a forest with the witchdoctor at midnight to purportedly see who was responsible for her daughter’s predicament. She saw nothing although this did not spare her from parting with seven rams. She went to places too many to mention all in an effort to free the little girl from a sickness that was tormenting her existence.

ADEOLA KESHINRO        AT THE PRAYER-LINEThey spent so much money that when they heard of The SCOAN in 2008 when the little girl was now 15 years old, the mother refused to come. She told the Good Samaritan who had told her about The SCOAN she had no more money to donate to so-called pastors. However, on the insistence of the little girl, she borrowed money and travelled all the way from Abuja to Lagos to meet the man of God. Arranged at the prayer line and having paid no money, Adeola was prayed for by Prophet T.B. Joshua who, in the name of Jesus Christ, commanded the evil spirit to come out. Since that time, she has not had any epileptic attacks and is doing well in school. She brought her medical report proving that she has been tested negative to epilepsy. Praise God!

EIGHT MONTHS PREGNANT AFTER 14 YEARS OF BARRENNESS!
ANTHONIA UDEHMrs Anthonia Udeh had become an easy target of name calling. No wonder, when she came forward to testify to the goodness of God over what He has done in her life, torrents of tears sped down her cheeks – a testimony to the end of the mental torture she had had to endure for almost a decade and a half. When she got married to her lovely husband, there was nothing but peace and bliss. Neither of them suspected they would have to endure years of childlessness. As days turned into months and years, she became increasingly worried. They watched young couples become mothers and fathers before their own eyes. Soon, they became a target of ridicule. People started mocking her, calling her a barren woman. They even went further, fruitlessly though, to suggest to her husband to send her out of the matrimonial home and bring in another wife who would give him children. This forced her to try everything deemed solution. She went to many places in search for help and drank a plethora of concoctions all in an effort to conceive and be called a mother. For 14 years they waited in vain and pain; and nothing worked until one divine day. A friend came to The SCOAN and obtained the Anointing Water and encouraged her to pray with the medium. Mrs Udeh ministered it into her mouth and prayed in Jesus’ name and behold; she soon missed her period after meeting with her husband. Now, a relieved and happy woman, she displayed her eight months old pregnancy for the world to see and bear witness to the glory of God. She is now a truly blessed woman whose 14 years of agony have come to a happy ending of fruitfulness. She advised people to believe in God.

SCHOLARSHIP GRANTED AFTER 14 LONG YEARS!
LEROY LEVIFor Mr Leroy Levi McNara, chances that he would go further with his studies had simply deteriorated to zero having graduated way back in 2001. By the passage of every year, his chances became narrower and he almost gave up. He applied to several overseas institutions for scholarship but could just not break the barrier. He then discovered Emmanuel TV and after watching testimonies of God’s great works in people’s lives, he came to The SCOAN for prayers and received the Anointing Water. He began to minister it on himself and his laptop. The next time he sent his application, he prayed for God to locate him. This time around, he received a reply that he should send his documents to the institution he had applied to in the USA – Pennsylvania State University. What had been illusive for 14 years became possible and he was given a full scholarship. He advised: “Be steadfast in prayer and God will answer you in His own time. He is a prayer answering God.”

DREADFUL ASTHMA FLUSHED OUT!

DELALI  {ASTHMA}Mrs Delali Awadey, 27, was an asthmatic from birth. This problem affected her in many ways. Sometimes, her asthma attacks could be so severe that she would collapse into a coma. The same problem caused her to drop out of school. When she became pregnant and tried to deliver her child, she was unable to do so normally and had to undergo an operation.

Believing that God could heal his wife of this sickness of asthma, her husband came to The SCOAN and obtained the Anointing Water. She ministered it in Jesus’ name and that marked the end to her bout with the unrelenting sickness. She has not had any asthma attack again. She brought her medical reports to show that by His stripes she is indeed healed of the problem she was diagnosed with. Thank You, Jesus!

YOUTHS SHARE FAITH BRACELET TESTIMONIES!
YOUTHFor the third week running, youths came forward to testify to the greatness of God following the self-deliverance they received through the medium of the Faith Bracelet. The first to testify was Blessing Edeh. She was afflicted with the spirit of suicide and suffered a mental disorder. Her own father had died of this same problem. Whenever Blessing slept, she would see her late father in her dream, calling her to follow him. In one such bizarre dream, he tried to lure her after him with the red shoes he had earlier bought for her in the physical. After this, she always had thoughts of committing suicide and started behaving abnormally. The moment she received the Faith Bracelet, she felt a vibrating force run through her body. That is how she was miraculously delivered and since then, she has had no more suicidal thoughts and is free from the problem of mental disorder. The red shoes had mysteriously vanished too!

Another youth, Rachel Christopher, was experiencing nightmares. She traced this problem to when she was six years old. When she slept, she would see dead people in her dreams. This would make her feel like she herself was dead. She would keep to herself. When she received her Faith Bracelet, she had a dream; she was being chased by a large crowed. As she ran for her life, she found the Faith Bracelet lying on the floor. She grabbed it and instantly, her assailants turned back and ran away as she began to chase them. Since that time, she has been free.

Another youth had the spirit of anger and lust. He had no respect for his mum or senior members of the family. This problem led him into one trouble after another especially after violently beating several of his classmates. He had also developed the bad habit of playing games on phones. All this ended when he received his Faith Bracelet. Now, he no longer has the spirit of anger as he has learnt to treat his mother and sisters with respect. He has become a good child. Thank You, Jesus!

PROPHECY SET ME FREE FROM HEART & DIABETES PROBLEMS

PATSON TEMBO {DADDY'S PROPHECY}Patson Tembo from Zambia had a terrible heart problem that was compounded by a serious case of diabetes. It started in 2001 although he did not know then that he had a heart problem. All he knew was that he had diabetes which he had been battling for seven years. This problem hindered him from performing his daily roles as a minister of God and businessman. Worse still, some of the medications he took had many side effects. PATSON TEMBO {DADDY'S PROPHECY} (2)In 2008, he heard of The SCOAN and decided to come. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua walked up to him in church and gave him a word of prophecy. He said he saw something in his heart, an enlargement in the heart, and that he should not go for an operation. The man of God then prayed for him upon which Mr Tembo fell to the ground. After receiving this mighty deliverance, he heeded the word of the man of God and, instead of going for an operation, he went for a checkup. Praise God, the same doctors who had lined up an operation for him, discovered that he no longer had diabetes or the heart problem. God had already performed the operation, divinely. He was medically declared free just as Jesus Christ had effectually set him free. Since then, he has been free, healthy and has lost the unhealthy weight diabetes had added to his stature. His advice is that God is alive and if one has faith, God is faithful enough to see one through. With Him, he said, all things are possible.

 

PATSON TEMBO {DADDY'S PROPHECY} (1)The Holy Spirit-filled service came to an end with the ministration of the New Anointing Water on congregants; an event which turned the whole arena of liberty into a huge amazement of signs and wonders as chains of darkness in people’s lives fell and the outpouring of divine blessing descended on the people!

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.

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.

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.

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
