Prophet T.B. Joshua ministering to the congregation.

Prophet T.B. Joshua ministering to the congregation.

Last Sunday was another awe-inspiring service hallmarked by a powerful and inspiring message from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. Packed to capacity and with all overflow canopies spilling over, The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria was gripped with the moving power of the Holy Spirit.   From the din of the choristers that bellowed to the heights of the Heavens, to amazing testimonies and the message of the day, the air was one of glorification and submission to the One who made Heaven and earth – the Almighty God!

Evangelist Chris encouraged viewers worldwide and the congregants in the church with the message titled: ‘Don’t Measure Your Christian Life  By Your Situation’.

“Remember, the main aim of satan in tempting people of God is to overthrow their relationship to God as Father. He wants to cause you to doubt your faith and question the truth of God’s Word. Each time you want to focus on your future in Christ, satan will remind you of unanswered prayers in the past in order to provoke your guilt and doubt and tarnish your future thereby. Outward afflictions, wants and burdens are the great arguments satan uses to make the people of God question their son ship,” he said.

“It is time you let satan know your stand – whether trouble or not, I will stay true to Jesus. If nothing in this world can separate you from the love of God and nothing in this world can shake your faith in God, then nothing in this world can stop you from crossing the bridge into your Divine destiny!”

Prophet T.B. Joshua, using proof texts from Romans 13:1 and Romans 5:8 taught about spiritual law.

He stressed that God’s hates sin but loves the sinner because sinners can be delivered. If an opportunity is given to a sinner, he can be reformed and change. He explained: “Since our battle is not against flesh and blood but against the spirit beings that cause these acts.”

Also referring to Ephesians 6:12, the man of God warned the church against wrestling against flesh and blood or striving against people, because doing so would be fighting the wrong battle.

“If we fail to see that there are powers that cause people to be bowed down in bondage, we are fighting the wrong battle. There are powers that cause you to be in poverty. When you are armed for battle, you will not fight the wrong battle; you will listen to the inner voice of the Holy Spirit.”

TESTIMONIES

Testimonies glorify God and this Sunday was no different as scores of people lined up to share their stories about how God had made their broken bodies and souls whole again with fulfilment and abundance. Here are but a few of the wonderful testimonies:

DELIVERANCE IS THE ANSWER

A businessman dealing in motor car spare parts, Mr Tedus was a happy entrepreneur and in a relationship with a young woman he was ready to marry. He was also an interpreter at his church. But life for the 26 year-old turned into a total nightmare three years ago when he travelled on a business trip to Dubai. In transit on his way back, he stopped over in East Africa. While he was at a hotel where the airline accommodated him along with others on the delayed flight, he and some other men went to swim in the hotel’s pool. In a dream that night, he saw himself back in the same pool, swimming with other men only that this time, everyone was naked.

He woke up to see himself sweating profusely from the dream with a strong sensation that something strange had entered into his spirit! Before long, he discovered that he no longer had any passion for women but began to develop feelings for men like him. Immediately he returned home, he broke up his relationship with his fiancée who was shocked and could not understand a thing. Something pushed him to research on the internet about relationships with men and there, his interest grew.

One day, his pastor surprised him when he asked him to go to The SCOAN for deliverance without specifying why. The day of salvation for him came when he entered The SCOAN. He explained how as he was seated in the overflow section outside the church, an elderly woman in the overflow canopy gave him her entrance ticket to the church. Inside, when the wise men were praying, he began to feel like running away. As one of the wise men approached and touched him, an evil voice within him spoke out and revealed how it had been responsible for making him love men instead of women.

Now, after his deliverance, he testified that his desires had changed and he no longer has passion for men but rather for women. He can now pray and read his Bible without distraction and diversion.

“Now I am delivered, I no longer have affection for men but for ladies. If you come across someone with the same problem I had, you should not condemn him. The only answer is deliverance,” he said.

Let us remember the words of Prophet T.B. Joshua. Anytime we strive against people, we fight the wrong battle. God loves sinners but hates sin. We should hate the act but not the people. If we fail to see that there are powers that cause people to be bowed down in bondage, we are fighting the wrong battle.

WATCHING EMMANUEL TV CHANGED MY FORTUNES

Mr Samson testifying to God’s goodness in his life.

For Mr Samson of Delta State, Nigeria, life literally had little meaning. For over 20 years, his life was littered with struggles and failures. He was facing stagnation and he could hardly pay his house rent and children’s school fees. While his friends were making headway in the same furniture business he was into, things just didn’t work out for him. It wasn’t until a friend introduced him to Emmanuel TV that his life changed. One day, while praying with Emmanuel TV, the man of God Prophet T.B. Joshua, declared breakthrough in his life. Two weeks later, while working in his shop, someone came and admired his work. What followed was a miracle as he received a massive contract a week later. Desperate to own his own house, he was able to buy a piece of land and started constructing a house on it the same week. Within eight months, construction was complete. A man, who could not afford even 1,500 naira, now has a house to call his own and is able to pay for his children’s school fees.

“Please, don’t give up on prayer,” he said.

LOOK! MUM NO LONGER SUFFERS PAIN

For Mrs Evelyn Ani, what seemed like a normal abdominal pain, took a deadly turn when a trip to the hospital revealed a diagnosis of bilateral enlarged ovaries.  The pain became excruciating to the point that she could not turn on her side. As she left the hospital, fear was added to her pain when she remembered the doctor’s words that she required an operation. She was still nursing scars of a previous operation and was not sure she would survive another one.   It was at the centre of such a dilemma that she decided to come to The SCOAN where she received the Anointing Water.

She prayed with it, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, sprinkled it in her mouth and, immediately, the pain left her. She called her children around her and shouted, “Mum has no more pain!” After one year pain free, she went back to the same hospital where doctors confirmed that she was healed. The two medical reports of before and after, testified to the complete transformation in her system.

 

 

 

A FRUITFUL TESTIMONY AFTER YEARS OF DESPERATION

Low sperm count was the root of the six-year barrenness in the lives of Mr and Mrs Stanley Igwe. They had tried and cried to have fruit of the womb, medically and otherwise, but there was no way out until their relative brought them to The SCOAN, where they received the Anointing Water. As they used the Anointing Water, the fruitfulness of the Lord exploded on the scene of their lives and a few months later, Mrs Igwe was confirmed pregnant.

She showed the congregation her husband’s medical reports confirming that he had low sperm count and another report that showed the position of the miracle baby in her womb after the ministration of the Anointing Water! The couple’s advice was for all to run to God for solution to their problems.

DEADLY CAR CRASH INJURIES WASHED AWAY BY THE ANOINTING WATER

Who would have thought that a pleasant family outing could be the site of a disaster? For Stella and her family from South Africa, it nearly was. Almost having arrived home from visiting her mother, with her grandchildren, the car suddenly swerved out of control until it hit a tree just a few kilometers from their home. The car was violently thrown over and the devastating crash left the two children seriously injured with a neck injury and broken ribs and the other child with a fracture to the head. The congregation gasped as they saw the pictures of the smashed  car lying upside down. When Stella arrived on the scene after receiving her daughter’s call, she met ambulances and paramedics cutting the children out of the overturned vehicle. They were rushed to hospital to be assessed overnight and the next day when Stella and the children’s mother were allowed to see them, the children had been moved to intensive care. The doctors were worried as they did not have the machinery or specialized staff to handle the gravity of their injuries.

With seemingly no other way out, the children were booked to be transferred to Pretoria General Hospital over four hours journey away. Then, Stella remembered that she had the Anointing Water and was permitted into the intensive care ward where she ministered it to her two grandchildren. Three days later, when the children were supposed to be moved, the doctors came to Stella and her daughter in the waiting room with a puzzled expression on his face. There was no longer any trace of the neck injury, broken ribs or fracture on the child’s head! The children were discharged immediately and since that day have been healed and healthy to the glory of God. The family advised the viewers that the power of the Anointing Water can penetrate even where the doctors cannot see and we should trust in God’s power.

A glorious moment of Holy Spirit adoration was the atmosphere of the third Sunday in the year at The SCOAN’s Live Sunday Service. The ringing admonition for worshippers and viewers all over the world was to ensure a lasting relationship with Jesus Christ as a prerequisite to a triumphant Christian life. The Man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, vehemently stressed the need for Christians to be prayerful through reading the Word and meditating on it if their faith is to grow. The Man of God, who described the Bible as an uncommon book, said if read slowly, repeatedly and attentively, the Word of God becomes an integral part of one’s life.

“The more you think about what you read in the Bible, the more familiar you become with His voice. Beyond our bodies and minds are our souls. That is why the ministers of God must be concerned about the soul of man because if the soul is sick, the man is sick and only God can heal the soul,” he said, referring to Thessalonians 5:23 which says that man is a divine person possessed of a spirit, soul and body.

                  PROPHET T.B JOSHUA

Ministering to thousands of worshippers who had gathered at The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria and viewers of Emmanuel TV, Prophet T.B. Joshua likened reading the Word of God to feeding the soul and the spirit. He said, “The more you think about what you read, the more the Word dominates your mouth. The more the Word dominates your mouth, the more it dominates your heart. The more the Word dominates your heart, the more it changes your conduct and behavior. The Word cannot dominate your mouth without you thinking about what you read. The Word that dominates your heart and mouth establishes, heals and delivers!”

Wise Man Daniel preached on the message: A LASTING RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST, saying that redemption does not call for personal effort but a look of faith to the Cross where Jesus Christ conquered death and gave us victory. Citing John 5:1-14 as proof text, he said it is essential for Christians to trust in Christ’s suffering for their healing, deliverance, salvation and all of God’s blessings.

Image

                          WISEMAN DANIEL

“Remember, in coming to Jesus Christ for help and healing, we should have an eye to Him as the promised Messiah, the trustee of mercy and grace. Trusting in Christ Jesus is not a mere intellectual acknowledgement, but adherence, commitment to, trust and faith in, and total dependence upon Him for everything,” he said.

 

 

TESTIMONIES

The service was replete with wonderful testimonies which, shown below, exemplify God’s amazing love demonstrated through healings, deliverances and blessings.


FIBROID FLUSHED OUT, SPIRITUAL HUSBAND BANISHED!

Mrs Grace Emmanuel had been tormented by a spiritual husband, which started when she was still a young girl, and multiple fibroids which had haunted her for four painful years. She visited many hospitals but wherever she went, doctors told her that the fibroids were too huge and the only solution was an operation.

                                                       MRS. GRACE EMMANUEL AND HUSBAND

Deep down in her heart, she knew that it was only Jesus Christ who could give her an effective and lasting solution. She came to The SCOAN where she received the Anointing Water, one of the mediums through which God is expressing himself to set His people free from satan’s afflictions. She prayed with it, believing that God would remove the fibroids for her and expel the spiritual husband out of her life. After the prayer, she went to the doctor for a scan which confirmed, to the wonder of the doctors that the multiple fibroids had disappeared. Rushing home to tell her husband the good news, she realized that not only had the pain left her body, the lack of affection towards her husband had also vanished. The spiritual husband stopped appearing to her and they began to live in perfect peace in Christ Jesus. Happily standing next to Mr Emmanuel, she advised all couples to believe in God.

ENTERTAINER SET FREE FROM SMOKING AND DRINKING

Nigerian popular comedian Owen Eru, commonly known as Owen Tee, came with his wife to The SCOAN to testify of God’s miraculous deliverance through the medium of the Anointing Water. He testified that he had been living a life of smoking and alcoholism, drinking up to two crates of beer a day. He spent so much money on the two vices that he was not able to save any to afford a wedding. As a consequence, his wife’s relatives were hesitant at the idea of allowing their daughter to marry him. His wife, then his girlfriend, tried to talk him out of the two bad habits, but failed. He also tried on his own to stop through prayer and fasting but the moment he broke his fasting, he would find himself perched on the stool, drinking and smoking.

Desperate to save their relationship and her future husband’s life, Eru’s girlfriend came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water. She took it home and told him that they should pray together in Jesus’ name for God’s breakthrough in their lives. After ministering the Anointing Water in prayer, they both noticed a change in their lives. Mr Eru did not smoke the following day. When he remembered that a day had passed without even a single stick, he decided to try drinking beer to see what would happen. To his surprise, the very smell and taste of alcohol suddenly became awful and disgusting. His urge for alcohol and cigarettes had completely left him. No longer wasting money on the bad habits, he was able to save money for their wedding. Jesus had broken his addiction and offered him a new life he had desperately aspired for.

“My friends have tried to tempt me with crates of beer and failed. They now buy me water. I have become a professional water drinker,” said the comedian, jokingly. His former girlfriend, now his wife, sat next to him in the church, displaying their beautiful newborn baby, a result of the glorious union God performed after his deliverance from smoking and drinking, over one year ago!

FRUIT OF THE WOMB RECEIVED THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

Mrs Loveth Waiter had been looking for a baby for six years. Doctors had done all kinds of tests on her but could not see anything wrong. After spending much of her resources looking for solution to this problem, her brother came to The SCOAN where he received the Anointing Water and gave it to her. After ministering it to herself and her husband in Jesus’ name, they met as husband and wife. Two weeks later, she was confirmed pregnant by the same doctors. She displayed her wonderfully large stomach for the glory of God, revealing that she is now nine months pregnant and expecting to deliver her baby any moment. How magnificent God is!

GOD HEALS, HIS NAME IS JESUS!

Image

                                               PASTOR MOWA KAMWI FROM ZAMBIA

Pastor Kamwi Mowa from Zambia, testified how Jesus Christ restored his hearing through the medium of the Anointing Water after he was injured by armed robbers in 2004. He explained that the attack by criminals caused him to sustain numerous injuries which rendered him deaf. When people spoke to him, he could not hear. When he wanted to speak with someone, he could not communicate properly. At the gatherings of people where speeches were being made, he had to ask people around him what was being said or ask for a handout of such speeches where available, otherwise it would be as if he did not attend the meetings. People began to communicate with him through hand signs. This was a great embarrassment to him.

“As a minister of God, I found it difficult to convince people that God heals when I was in this situation,” he said.

When doctors examined him, they found that some nerves had been tampered with and that even the use of hearing aids would not help. They told him the only option to regaining his hearing to some degree would be an operation with a 50-50 chance of success. He realized that human effort could not help him. In 2013, he had the opportunity to receive the Anointing Water from a visitor to The SCOAN. He read the Anointing Water Booklet with faith and keen interest. He prayed before he ministered the Anointing Water, that God would have mercy. As he ministered the Anointing Water, he felt a strange sensation and then he slept. In the morning, everything had changed! The first thing that happened when he opened his eyes was that he heard the voice of his wife greeting him, “Good morning” – for the first time in nine years! That marked the end of a problem which human wisdom had failed to solve. He can now communicate and minister properly.  All that had been lost has been restored through the medium of the Anointing Water and faith in Christ Jesus!

Pastor Mowa further testified that after his miraculous healing, he took the Anointing Water to his hospitalized father, a military man who could no longer talk, see or sit down due to high blood pressure and diabetes. After praying with him and ministering the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name, his father began to communicate and sat up for the first time in so long. Later that evening, his father testified that his sight was returning! Medical tests later confirmed that his father’s blood pressure had returned to normal and he was confirmed fit to return to military service! Showing the current photo of his father in his combat gear at the military barracks in Zambia, Pastor Mowa said both he and his father can walk, talk, move, see, hear and live freely. To God be all the glory!

PROPHECY DISCOVERS LOST DAUGHTER AFTER 28 YEARS

When Mr Henry Nwajames came to The SCOAN Sunday last week, the probable prophecy he had expected would come from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, was about his financial problems.  His businesses had been grounded; nothing was working. To his disbelief and utter shock, the man of God prophesied to him about an issue that had happened nearly three decades ago and one he had completely forgotten – the root to his mountain of problems.

Image

                                                             MR. HENRY NWAJAMES & FAMILY

The man of God approached him and asked him about his other wife and a controversy. He was bewildered because, according to him, he only had one wife. Never in his life had he married two women.  When he got home that day, still failing to comprehend what the man of God had said, he told the prophecy to a friend who reminded him of a girl he had impregnated and abandoned in the village a long time back. Mr Nwajames was dumbfounded that the prophet could dig into his past and unearth what he himself had forgotten – something that had happened when he was just a teenager.

Image

               MR. HENRY NWAJAMES’ DAUGHTER

He came back this Sunday to clarify what the controversy was all about – the daughter he had forgotten about for many years. He confessed that when he heard his girlfriend was pregnant, he discarded his previous promise to her that they would marry, denied the pregnancy and ran away. That was 28 years ago.

In the meantime, the daughter grew up by being passed from one hand to another. Her mother died and she got married. Unfortunately, her husband also died mysteriously and she was accused of his death. She was therefore widowed, hurt and with two children to raise single handedly.

“As I stand here, I have never seen my daughter. I am told she has come and is in this church. I will see her for the first time,” said Mr Nwajames fighting tears.

The man of God then called out for the daughter to come forward. She did, with two handsome sons, Mr Nwajames’ grandchildren. She explained her ordeal growing up without a father, failing to raise money for her secondary school fees and working in a restaurant to make ends meet – a life of abuse and suffering.

The man of God told Mr Nwajames that this sin he had committed years ago was  responsible for the woes besieging his life, including his collapsed businesses and finances! Thank God, Mr Nwajames re-united with her daughter for the first time in 28 years!

The congregation rejoiced in the goodness of the Lord and then joined the Wise Men for the mass prayer, during which many more souls were set free from the kingdom of darkness, in the name of Jesus. To God be all the glory!

With the year 2014 still in its infancy days, and having been prophetically christened by Prophet T.B. Joshua as ‘The Year of Crossing the Bridge’, nothing could be more timely than a call for Christians to be in an attitude of prayer all the time. The Man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, quoted the book of Joshua 1:8; which teaches about keeping and speaking the Word of God.Image

 

The prophet gave three take-home points: Keeping the Word of God in one’s mouth, meditating day and night in the Word, and doing what the Word says.

 

Explained the Man of God: “If the heart and mouth are in one accord with God’s Word, you will begin to tap the blessings of God. If the Word dominates your heart, it will surely influence your conduct and behavior and you will do what the Word says. The Word cannot dominate your heart by just reading it, but by meditating day and night. You have to cultivate this habit.”

 

Prophet T.B. Joshua later ministered prayer at the Prayer Line where people from all over the world received healings, deliverances and prophecies, by the power of the Holy Spirit and in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

 

Earlier on, Wise Man Christopher preached on the message: THE PROPHETIC PICTURE OF OUR FUTURE, urging Christians not to look at their situations from the human point of view but God’s. The proof-text was from the book of Genesis 37:5-11; a scripture about Joseph and how the Spirit of God gave him a prophetic picture of his future in a dream and saw himself in a position of authority.Image

He explained, “Your conduct and behaviour cannot change unless the Holy Spirit gives birth in you a picture of what He is looking at when He sees you. And that picture is a victor not a victim, a successful person not a failure, a blessed and healthy person not a poor and sick person. Like Joseph, if the Lord is with you, you would be comforted in whatever situation you find yourself. When God is supporting your position, there is comfort in affliction; strength in your weakness”.

 

TESTIMONIES

There was an abundance of testimonies from scores of people who came to give God the glory for the goodness He has done in their lives. Be blessed, in Jesus’ name, as you read a few of the amazing and awesome testimonies. We hope they will lift your faith and bring you close to God.

 

BACK TO LIFE: RESURRECTION POWER AT WORK!Image

Mrs Chioma Okorie and family came to The SCOAN to testify about the resurrection power they had experienced in the name of Jesus Christ. She and her family had gone on a visit to their village at the beginning of this month. However, what had started as a happy excursion to cheer friends and relatives, ended in horror when, on their way back to the city, their car crashed as they were trying to avoid an oncoming speeding car. While she, her husband and daughter came out safely from the wreck without a scratch, a family friend’s daughter who was with them in the car, collapsed. They rushed her to the hospital but, on arrival, she was confirmed dead, to the shock of everyone. Mrs Okorie became worried and agitated not knowing how she would explain to the family that her own family had come out safely but their daughter had died. She remembered that she had in her handbag the Anointing Sticker she had received from The SCOAN. She placed it on the dead body and prayed with it for the resurrection power of Jesus Christ to restore the girl’s life. While praying in the name of Jesus, the girl stirred, woke up and began to talk, to the amazement of everyone.

 

“The first thing she asked was, ‘where is uncle?’ and we knew she was back to life,” said Mrs Okorie.

Ada Chukwu, the girl concerned, came out to testify that all she could remember was waking up on the hospital bed with the Anointing Sticker on her body. Praise God!

 

SCROTUM CANCER PERMANENTLY ELIMINATED IN JESUS’ NAME

ImageMr Edolor and his family came to express their sincere gratitude to God for His life-giving power. Mr Martins Edolor, 45 years-old, had developed scrotum cancer from what started as a tiny boil. The small sore turned into a fully-fledged wound that oozed blood and smelly pus. He could not eat. The scrotum as well as his stomach became very swollen. He was urinating blood. He could not drive or walk around or even wear trousers. The pain increased everyday and no drug he took worked. He went to the hospital and they carried out tests on him but they could not treat his condition because it had become too severe. The doctors only gave him some medication just to ease the pain. When his father saw him lie in the hospital bed with a big foul-smelling wound on his private parts and flies buzzing all over the room, he simply broke down in tears. He had just lost three sons in three years and could not stand the sight of seeing another inch close to the edge of yet another grave.Image

 

His sister, Comfort, a member of The SCOAN, encouraged him that he would not die; that the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua would heal him. She connected his phone so that he could hear Prophet T.B. Joshua’s prayers. He began to pray with the man of God. That night, after the prayer, the boil burst open. Blood and strange objects started coming out of the anus. For the first time, he had a slight relief and was able to move his leg. Three days later, they brought him to The SCOAN. By now, the horrible smell from the cancer had gone, making it easier for people to travel with him. He joined the prayer line and, as one of the Wise Men approached him, he said, he felt a cold sensation flow down his body to his feet. He stood up, all the pain was gone! For the first time in three weeks, he asked for his pair of trousers to be brought for him. He had been wearing a wrapper to avoid hurting himself.

“Within days after the prayer, the wound healed. Up to now, everything is normal and you cannot tell that I ever had scrotum cancer,” he said.

 

Mr Edolor is now back to his business, selling foodstuffs and living his life freely to the glory of God. His 84 year-old father said if his son had died, he was also ready to die as he could not bear the anguish. His sister, Comfort, advised people to get connected to the prayers of Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV and that Jesus Christ would transform their life.

 

ENGINEER BEN FINALLY BUILDS HIS OWN HOUSEImage
Engineer Ben and Family came to testify how they got breakthrough through the Anointing Sticker and Anointing Water. Although he and his family were staying in town, they had been facing serious accommodation problems when they visited the village. They had been making frantic efforts to build a house to replace the one left by his grandfather but due to financial setbacks, it all proved abortive. In 2012 they received the Anointing Water and the Anointing Sticker from The SCOAN with which he and his wife prayed with it for a miracle. In the same year, he had a dream in which he was reconstructing the old house and getting to his office, asked an architect to sketch it for him. With faith, he put the Anointing Sticker on the door of the old house and instructed his people to start clearing the ground around the old house telling them this was where God wanted them to start. He sprinkled the Anointing Water on the foundation of the new building and prayed in Jesus’ name. Since that time, they did not stop construction until the 10-room duplex building was completed. What they had failed to complete in years, was finished in just two and a half months. Also, while the construction was going on; God blessed him with a new SUV car. In December they all travelled to the village and no one could recognise the way to their house because in place of the old building was a new magnificent house, fully furnished. 

 

FAVOUR UPON FAVOUR FOR WOMAN OF FAITH

Taking her turn to testify was Mrs Theophilla Myoba from Lusaka in Zambia.  She had earlier come to The SCOAN with the problem of setback and limitation. Her family had been suffering from abject poverty. They were barely surviving. After human power and wisdom had failed to bail the family out of the seeming perpetual problem, she concluded that God was the only solution. Mrs Myoba’s situation was so critical that she even had to borrow money for her transport to come to The SCOAN. Even the clothes she wore, she borrowed. People laughed at her when she told them she was coming to The SCOAN but her faith was so strong that no one could dissuade her. While she was still at The SCOAN, a miracle happened. Her husband received a long-awaited promotion at his place of work and that marked the beginning of her breakthrough in the family. She also met the Man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, and was privileged to receive the Anointing Water. Back home in Zambia, taps of favour opened and poured upon her family. She received her own promotion. As a civil servant, she was able to complete a five-bedroom house she had been struggling to build. She is also a proud owner of two cars. She had never believed that she would ever own what she now has.Image

 

“Don’t listen to what people say; they laughed at me. Follow your heart and God will bless you,” she advised and showed viewers her new car and house she has built with God’s grace.

 

WOMAN FRAUDSTER EXPOSED AFTER STEALING GOD’S MONEY

Miss Coulibaly Assetou, from Ivory Coast, came to give testimony of her breakthrough and also tell a tragic account of her encounter with a professional fraudster who conned her of an estimated US$100,000 meant for God’s work. Miss Assetou had been experiencing problems in her business but after ministering the Anointing Water and praying with faith in Jesus’ name, she was able to open a multinational company stretching from France to Belgium and Italy – the first vehicle transit company in Ivory Coast. Since then, she has experienced breakthrough in every area of her life.Image

 

She explained that she had found out about The SCOAN through a Marie France Monnet, a woman who claimed to be Prophet T.B. Joshua’s representative in Ivory Coast. To express her appreciation to God and to support the worthy cause of Emmanuel TV, she decided to become a partner of the ministry. In line with that understanding, she gave a total sum of 45 million CFA to the woman to present to The SCOAN and Emmanuel TV for tithe and partnership payments. The sum is equivalent to 100,000 US Dollars.

 

To her utter shock, when she came to The SCOAN last week, she discovered that the money had never reached The SCOAN and that she had fallen into the hands of a fraudster. She was stunned and could not believe that the woman she had held in high esteem was not what she had professed to be but an imposter with no fear of God.

 

As if that was not enough, the same woman, Marie France Monnet called and told her that the man of God had given her a prophecy that she should give more money or else something bad would happen to her in 2014. Standing before the congregation on Sunday, she warned everyone especially those from Ivory Coast to be careful not to be duped by the fraudster. She also warned that there is no Emmanuel TV office in the country and people should watch out for such unscrupulous individuals who steal in the name of the Lord.

 

According to her, the woman had even claimed that she was going to bring a wise man to Ivory Coast.  Viewers all over the world, be careful of those who are interested only in their personal gain!

 

JESUS STOPS SEVERE BLEEDING, SAVES BABY ‘EMMANUEL’!

Mrs Imah Rosemary, from Edo State, had been bleeding profusely through her nose and mouth for eight consecutive days due to a ruptured nose artery. The doctor fixed a drip on her but the bleeding continued all the more. Her condition was deteriorating by the day and her situation was critical as she was eight months pregnant. The doctors declared that there was nothing more they could do. It was in this desperate state that her husband rushed her to The SCOAN as the last beacon of hope. Blood was ceaselessly gushing from both her mouth and nostrils into a bucket placed on her lap. It was a shocking spectacle to watch. Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her at the prayer line and commanded the bleeding to stop, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. It did. Her nose and mouth went dry. Both her life and that of her unborn baby were saved and she has now safely delivered her baby boy and given him the name ‘Emmanuel’!  Her husband thanked Jesus for His mercy.Image

 

“She had stopped eating and drinking. The night after the prayer, she demanded for food and slept like a baby,” he said. When it was time for her to deliver her baby, they were in different locations but her husband ministered the Anointing Water on her picture, praying for her. A moment later, she called and told him that she had delivered safely without any complication. What a wonderful God we serve!

 

GENERATIONAL CURSE OF ARMED ROBBERY SMASHED!
Image
Mrs Gifty Torubiri’s great-great grandfather was a witchdoctor and fetish man. Apart from being a seer for the chief’s throne in his area, he provided charms to thieves. It is not surprising, therefore, that the spirit of stealing entered his family and developed deep roots that grew to haunt the generations after him. Each family that descended from him had armed robbers who did not hesitate to shed blood. Mrs Torubiri’s own father was a notorious armed robber and died in the act. His killing made headlines in the press. All male members of the family were notorious criminals who abducted women and raped them. Not long ago, she was called to view bodies of her uncles shot dead by the police during a failed robbery attempt. Many people gathered to watch the execution. Meanwhile, all the females in the family have been prostitutes or married to armed robbers. After marrying armed robbers, they would give birth to armed robbers and so the cycle of crime continued. Her mother too lived a criminal’s life; selling Indian hemp and moving from one hotel to another, prostituting herself. As for herself, she always felt something urging her to steal and she has slept with more men than she can remember, unbeknown to her husband. She even slept with her landlord and the chief in her village while married. She could not explain why, but said that she would always desire other women’s husbands and was never satisfied.

 

All this was exposed at The SCOAN where she came for prayer the previous week. However, what brought her were financial difficulties. Little did she know that the root of her problem was a horrific family curse of armed robbery. When it was time for her deliverance and one of the wise men was approaching her, she was praying but then, suddenly, something within her told her to run away. The evil spirit inside her started to confess that it was the ‘great old woman’ and that it was responsible for the spirit of armed robbery in her family and that it had destroyed her destiny. To God be the glory, she was finally delivered.

 

After her deliverance, she is free. The thought of stealing is no longer there and she no longer thinks about other men nor desires to sleep with other people’s husbands. She pleaded for deliverance of her whole family as she did not want to be a mother of armed robbers. Her 17-year old son, she said, was already stealing and had recently been caught stealing a fowl, for which he was severely beaten. The tragic part of her story was that every robber in the family would eventually get killed.

 

Commenting on her situation and the deliverance, Prophet T.B. Joshua explained that when one kills an armed robber or a criminal, it is the body that is killed and not the evil spirit which is the cause of the stealing, killing and destroying. Therefore, the solution is deliverance from that evil spirit. “Once an evil spirit is cast out by the Spirit of God in the name of Jesus, it is caged perpetually until the Day of Judgment”, he said.

 

HEALED OF DIABETES THROUGH WATCHING EMMANUEL TV

Miss Misper Youngwe is a Cameroonian living in Germany. She had a dream where men sprayed tear gas on her. She woke up that day and had rashes all over her body. She went to the hospital where the doctors gave her medication to stop the rashes and scratching. She went for another test and was diagnosed to be a diabetic. This was strange to her because no one in her family had this problem. She started praying with Prophet T.B. Joshua while watching Emmanuel TV and carrying the test results, believing by faith for healing. She went for another test and glory to God, she was pronounced diabetic free to the surprise of the doctors. She advised that watching Emmanuel TV can transform your life.Image

MAKE THE YEAR WORK!

January 5 marked the first Sunday for the year 2014 and for those who gathered at The SCOAN in Lagos Nigeria, there could be no better way for stepping into the year than the praise and worship that filled the auditorium. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, preached with power and gave Words of Wisdom, touching on the topic of faith. He stressed that faith is not an imitation but a spiritual experience that should arise in one’s heart according to the Word of God.

Image

Prophet T.B. Joshua

Said the man of God: “Faith arises in each person’s heart because faith is of man’s heart. Don’t base your faith on your improvement after prayer” He then warned against basing one’s spiritual experience on feelings and emotions saying, “If you continue to base faith on your improvement after prayer, the devil will continue to deceive you. You will begin to count how many times your prayer is answered,” he said.

Wise Man Harry preached on the message: MAKE THE YEAR WORK. The proof text was from the Book of Matthew 15:21-28, a scripture about a woman from Canaan who had an encounter with Jesus Christ and persistently begged for the healing of her daughter who was suffering from demon possession. He described the woman as one with vision and active faith, hence her ability to attract Jesus’ attention and to have her daughter healed.

Wise Man Harry 

He said, as a Christian, when one’s focus is on a dream, whatever happens around the person would not matter. “Today, it’s not that we do not have a dream, we have but we do not believe in our dream. If you have a dream, remember that nobody else would believe that dream. If you don’t believe your dream, your dream will not come to pass. Therefore, you must protect that dream as nobody else can do it for you. To protect your dream, you must stop the language or the vocabulary of the victim; be positive. Let your words become the photograph of the future you desire instead of the future you fear,” he said.

 TESTIMONIES

The service was laced with testimonies from people who came from all over the world to glorify God over His goodness in their lives. Here are but a selected few:

BULLET PROOF CORPORAL FINDS SAFETY IN GOD’S ARMOUR

When Corporal Benjamin Gabriel of the Nigerian Police Force left his station at the Lagos State Command on a special assignment last year to an area notorious for armed robbery, he thought it was just going to be ‘business as usual’ – patrolling the street and mounting a road block that would scare away such criminals from operating. But little did the 24 year-old know he was going to have an unusual dangerous encounter with these men of the underworld that, without God’s presence with him, they would have taken his life! Corporal Benjamin’s experience was one that eventually proved to any doubting Thomas of God’s mightiness as Protector and Defender of His people. While at the checking point with three of his other colleagues that fateful night, he suddenly found himself and his colleagues surrounded by no less than 14 men heavily armed with sub-automatic machine guns. Instantly, the robbers uncorked their AK49 weapons and opened fire at the unsuspecting police officers. The AK49 rifle is a later model to the AK47 which Corporal Gabriel and his unit carried. The officer beside him was shot dead instantly, others were severely injured while another escaped into the bush leaving Corporal Gabriel alone staring into 14 muzzles of loaded guns.

“I could see flares of gun-fire all around me and could feel bullets hit me all over,” he said. Thank God, none of the bullets could penetrate his flesh; he was under the protection of Heavenly armour!

Before he left for the assignment, a friend had given him a copy of one of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s sermons, known as an ‘MPG – Mouthpiece of God’ titled, You Must Be Born Again. Although he had never visited The SCOAN before, after reading the message, he was touched and his faith in Christ Jesus increased because he had heard a lot of God’s great work for mankind on earth today through His Prophet, T.B. Joshua. He took his own personal photograph by faith and placed it inside the sermon leaflet as a point of contact for God’s intervention in his life. He had then placed the leaflet inside his bag and believed that the yoke in his life was broken, in Jesus’ name. This was what he went with on this extra-ordinary encounter.

Now, confronted by notorious criminals shooting at him and his fellow officers, he remembered the MPG in his bag. Just as the first bullet rung out, Corporal Gabriel shouted the name, “Jesus!” Even as bullets rained on him, tearing through his combat boots, trousers and underwear, none could go beyond what he wore. They continued firing at him at close range and he continued shouting: “Jesus, God of Prophet T.B. Joshua, save me!” It was a barrage of gun shots tearing everywhere into pieces including the battleground like a volcanic eruption, yet Corporal Benjamin was not hurt despite their firepower and numbers against him even when they had taken his Police Service AK47 gun away as he fell thinking he had been shattered into pieces!

Corporal Benjamin Gabriel

But they failed because the presence of God was with him! The armed robbers were shocked to see the bullets ripping his uniform but not piecing his body. All he was shouting was, ‘Jesus, God of T.B. Joshua!’ The Corporal, now confident that God was at work, charged at his adversaries even without any gun in hand like a lion and eventually collected one of the armed robbers’ guns, an AK49!

He testified, “They collected my AK-47 and I collected their AK-49’s!” Full of fear and confused at this man who refused to die, the armed robbers disappeared into the darkness. Corporal Gabriel, ‘God’s bullet-proof officer’ who joined the police service in 2002, showed the congregation the very uniform and underwear he wore that night with the bullet holes in them. The AK 49 bullets destroyed his combat boots into shreds of leather but his feet were untouched! He said that when he told the Commissioner of Police in his State and his superiors, they could not believe what had happened and questioned him about his unexplainable, unharmed and untouched body. He showed them his photo, inside the sermon of Prophet T.B. Joshua from The SCOAN and they were all amazed at the miraculous escape and were left with no doubt; it was the supreme work of God.

“God made my body bullet-proof!” was his ecstatic reply.

 ANOINTING WATER WASHES AWAY KIDNEY PROBLEM

Mrs Roseline Onyishi from Enugu State in Nigeria, and her 16 year-old daughter Precious, came to testify to God’s glory of the miraculous healing her daughter received through the medium of the Anointing Water. In September last year, Precious had fallen ill and had all signs of a malaria attack. She was rushed to hospital but after two days of admission, she continued to vomit and had been put on a drip. Although the doctors said they were doing their best, there did not seem to be any improvement. She remained confined to the hospital bed for four days and on the fifth day, the doctors confessed the limitation of human wisdom. They sent her for another test at a different facility; this was after she spent a week in the hospital. They were told that it was a serious case of kidney failure and that Precious should go for dialysis. The doctor explained that her kidney was enlarged and she needed emergency attention. All her daughter could do was vomit and go to the toilet; she was in a terrible state. Actually, the doctors said she would need to be on dialysis for the rest of her life. Each day, her daughter received one pint of blood and they continued with the dialysis. One of Mrs Onyishi’s in-laws visited her at the hospital and gave her the Anointing Water from The SCOAN. After reading the Anointing Water booklet, her faith was lifted. She ministered the Anointing Water on her daughter’s lower abdomen and in her mouth, in Jesus’ name.

One day later, the doctor discharged them for no apparent reason. When they inquired why, the doctor told her that her daughter was inexplicably well and should therefore go home and return the following week. Another test a week later, confirmed that she was indeed healed of the kidney problem – no more dialysis, no more needles and blood transfusions. Today she is safe and free with all her eyes to becoming a medical doctor. Glory to God!

CANCER FLUSHED OUT!

Mrs Peggy Kaluba from Zambia was diagnosed with cancer last year. She had been experiencing a blocked nose for three years and felt pain when swallowing. She visited the hospital and the doctors advised her to go for a CT scan which exposed a tumour. After one month having gone through a biopsy, the next thing was for her to go for an operation in order to remove the large cancerous tumour of the neck and nose which in itself could not even be guaranteed. The doctors said she should go to a hospital where she would receive specialist attention. She decided to visit the Great Physician, Jesus Christ and came to The SCOAN where she received the Anointing Water. At this time, the tumour was massive in size. Back home, she prayed and ministered the Anointing Water, in Jesus’ name and went for another scan. She said she believed in the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua. When the results came out, she was free from cancer! Jesus had healed her.

“Jesus heals; learn to trust in God,” she said.

 ‘JESUS IS THE ONLY SOLUTION!’ SAYS DELIVERED WITCH DOCTOR

Another testimony came from Miss Olipha Dube from South Africa, a registered nurse and a strong witch doctor who was delivered at The SCOAN prayer line last week. She testified of how futile the devil’s perceived solutions to man’s problems are. After graduating from her nursing school, she went into private business supplying nurses for government and institutions in the health sector. Her business was going well until a few years later when everything slowed down and plunged. Frustrated and with nowhere to run, her friend introduced her to a witch doctor where she received charms to help her business. Instead, her problems became worse. She started moving from one witch doctor to another, searching for a higher power until one of the witch doctors told her that her ancestors wanted her to become a witch doctor.

She accepted and went through the initiation school where charms were stuffed into her body. She was also given power to see what others could not see and the ability to communicate with the spiritual world. She was initiated and started practicing as a witch doctor. Many people came to her shrine but she discovered that she could not solve every problem brought to her. Even those that she ‘helped’ would later come back complaining that the charms only worked for a few days and then brought worse problems. So, she went to another initiator and paid a huge sum of money for him to teach her how to use plants, trees and animal parts to produce different kinds of charms.

In the process, she used many charms on herself in order to be able to communicate with the spiritual world on a daily basis and attain more powers. She had an evil altar in her bedroom, where she would talk to the ancestral spirits – they would appear to her and communicate with her. She had two shrines for the ancestral spirits – one for her father’s side and another one for her mother’s side. She would use parts of animals, like dogs, drying them in the sun and grinding them into powder.  People would receive the powder, not knowing what it was made of. After inserting the powder into the person, the spirit of the animal would enter them, giving the person an uncontrollable spirit of lust. She explained that because this did not provide a lasting solution, it caused people to start moving from one witch doctor to another unaware that it was actually increasing their problems.  As a witch doctor, she said, she was raising spiritual husbands and wives for people by going to the graveyard and raising the spirit of a dead man or woman which she would assign to her client’s victims. That way many families were destroyed. She also explained that she was able to connect with the evil spirits and could tell people about their past, present and future. If she was standing next to a person, the evil spirit would be telling her about that person. Despite all the powers she possessed, she found herself having more and more problems. She lost her business and all her assets. Her situation became pathetic and one day, one of the people she had initiated told her about Emmanuel TV where she saw people manifesting and confessing the very things she was doing. She was surprised and frustrated at how the evil spirits like those she had unleashed on others, were commanded out of people at just one word –  Jesus!

Miss Olipha Dube

 

She came to The SCOAN and was arranged at the prayer line. As the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua came towards her, she explained, she felt a great force and at the same time, she heard a voice telling her to run but she could not escape, something was holding her feet

The evil spirit inside of her manifested and was cast out, in Jesus’ name. Today, she is delivered from the evil spirit that had destroyed her life.  “I now feel peace inside and outside me. I am a happy person. My past is over and I am ready for a new life in Christ Jesus,” she said, adding, “If you want to be a Christian, be a Christian. The only solution is Jesus Christ; there is no other solution.”

I SEE YOU CARRYING BABY SAMUEL!

When Mr and Mrs Eze came to The SCOAN last year, they received a prophecy from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. He told her she was too young to have problems in her home and that he saw her carrying ‘Samuel’. In her testimony, she said her marriage was full of quarrels and she was also experiencing miscarriages. She was pregnant at the time of the prophecy. After the prophecy, she went for a scan which showed that she was indeed carrying a baby boy and that he was safe. Her husband’s attitude towards her also changed. He became loving. Now, they have a baby boy named Samuel Okechukwu Eze as fulfillment of the prophecy by the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua!

TOTAL LOSS OF SMELL AND TASTE RESTORED AFTER FIVE YEARS

Mrs Diana Nkwo from Cameroon had the horrible problem of no sense of smell and taste for five years. This severely affected her life. At one point her daughter’s apartment in the USA and the rest of the building could have been burnt by the fire she caused by placing a pot on the cooker and not being able to smell that it was burning, if not for her daughter’s intervention. She could not detect the impending inferno because of her dead sense of smell! The incident would have cost life as her daughter’s child was sleeping in one of the rooms. By the time she realised the tragedy and carried the child out, the whole house was thick with smoke. Also as a result of the problem, she could not enjoy her own food because she could not taste. Her nose was also running ‘like a baby’s’ because of the same nasal problem. She went to many hospitals within and outside her country in search of solution but found none. The only hope given to her was an operation in the United States which could not even be guaranteed.

Mrs Diana Nkwo

She tried traditional medicine but to no avail. After everything humanly had failed, she decided to come to The SCOAN for a divine solution. She was placed at the prayer line where the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, prayed for her, in Jesus’ name and instantly, she regained her sense of taste and smell. For the first time in five years, she could smell the scent of her own perfume. She glorified God for her healing and advised people to believe in God.

 

DRY BONES RISE AGAIN!

Emmanuel Batawa from Ghana came to The SCOAN with the problem of stiff neck due to cervical spondylosis. He also suffered from lumbar spondylosis. He could not turn his neck and walked with difficulty. He was experiencing dizziness and had blurred vision. He had visited many hospitals in search of solution but got none. Wearing a lumbar corset and a neck collar that held his neck and back bones together, the 41-year-old was placed at the prayer line where one of the wise men prayed for him in the name of Jesus Christ and he instantly received his healing.  Today, he came to testify how he now is a free man, having been healed by Jesus Christ. He no longer uses a neck collar or lumbar corset. He demonstrated his healing by walking across the altar, bending and turning his neck.

CHARITY TO THE ELDERLY

Where are your elderly ones? Care for them and you shall reach old age. Today, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave 3 million naira and a trailer full of rice to the elderly members of The SCOAN. He then announced that this care and support is given monthly to the elderly. The elderly gave thanks to God for the life of Prophet T.B. Joshua and the wonderful gifts they had received.

All roads, in the last two weeks, have led to The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria. The Arena of Liberty, as it is fondly referred to, has been a beehive of activities with worshippers pouring in from all walks of life and all corners of the world for one major purpose – to humble themselves before God and seek His face as they bid farewell to 2013 and step into 2014. This made the last Sunday service a memorable one to behold. Among the visitors who graced the service were Malawi’s President, Dr Joyce Banda and her husband, retired Chief Justice Richard Banda. A delegation from the nation of South Sudan was also in attendance from the country’s president, General Salva Kiir Mayardit. They came in appreciation of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s prophetic message a few months ago concerning the crisis that recently engulfed the new nation, requesting prayers for Divine intervention.  

Image

The service was also lit up with stars from many sectors of society. Kimmy Skota, a professional opera singer from South Africa who got delivered at the recent Anointing Water Revival held at the New Bingley Hall in Brimingham, UK, came to share her testimony. The singer, who has in her life time performed before high profile audiences across the globe, did more than just testify – she performed alongside The SCOAN choir, to the glory of God and amazement of the congregation. Also on call, to the surprise of Emmanuel TV viewers worldwide and football followers in particular, was Nigeria’s national football team midfielder Ogenyi Onazi. The player, who plies his professional trade at Lazio in Italy, was an amazement to watch as he masterfully manned the church’s keyboard. Onazi is a product of The SCOAN’s youth football team, My People FC and used to play the instrument for the church choir before he ventured on his illustrious football career.

Again, God’s power manifested in abundance through healings, deliverances and prophecies as Prophet T.B. Joshua moved among the congregation ministering prayer by the power of the Holy Spirit. He spoke about the coming year, describing it as a bridge; a delicate, sensitive year. The man of God said, “It is a bridge that connects one to another. If the year is a bridge, what exactly will you expect? It means you have to live modestly. Cut your coat according to your size. It is not a time to walk arrogantly or a time to be proud. A time to cross a bridge is a time to be very careful.”

He continued, “Destiny will work beautifully next year. Destiny – exactly what God has destined for you. If you are very careful, you will cross the bridge successfully. Please, you have to return back to your destiny. What is the meaning of destiny? It is the way of the Lord. This year, you have to return to the way of the Lord!”

Image

Wise Man Daniel preached on the message: ALLOW GOD TO DECIDE which hinged on man’s vulnerability to making wrong decisions when faced with challenges. Picking as proof text Acts 16:18-25, which talks of Paul and Silas’ incarceration, he said it is obvious that before God Almighty came to their rescue in the prison, the two were confined to the harsh realities of life – ‘a very tensed and difficult situation that offered them the opportunity to grumble, to murmur and rebel against their God.’

“But as genuine Christians, instead of seeing their God in bad light, they chose to praise and worship Him. It is in a tensed and difficult situation like this we know the difference between real Christians and professing Christians. As a Christian, if you were to find yourself in the same situation Paul and Silas found themselves, what decision would you have made? Remember, at that point when everything seemed to suggest that, there was no hope and no future, if they were not members of the household of faith, they would have given in to fear and then begin to rebel against their God,” he said, adding however, “they never did that because they knew that the devil wants us – children of God – to curse God while under pains, difficulties or harsh realities of life.”

He said instead of murmuring and grumbling, Christians should let God decide for them. “As a Christian, what becomes of you today depends on how much you involve God in your matter (Psalm 37:5-6). What you will be tomorrow depends on the choices you make today. Remember, blessed is the man who makes Christ Jesus his source; for he will see the reason for his believing, even in hard times,” he stated.

 

TESTIMONIES

Scores of people came forward to testify the greatness of God in their life. Here, however, are but a few of the testimonies and we believe that you shall be blessed and come with your own testimony, in Jesus name!

 

CONFESSIONS FROM THE MARINE WORLD:

 

Image

Mrs Florence Ucheanya was brought up accustomed to supernatural experiences. At a tender age of five, a ‘mermaid’ appeared to her in a dream, stating that it was her mother. When Florence questioned her biological mother, she confessed that when she was about to give birth to her, some strange beings came to her in a dream to attest that the baby in her womb belonged to them. Growing up, Mrs Ucheanya began to receive instructions from these demonic forces which were appearing to her physically on a regular basis, especially when she was close to a river. One day she had gone to a nearby river only to see a half-human-half-fish creature leap from the river laugh at her. Her mother had previously warned her from going to the river alone. Upon reaching university, she decided to become a Christian and began preaching to young children. However, the deep spiritual entanglements were still very much intact and her involvement in the dark marine world seemed only to intensify. She would nightly attend spiritual meetings in the ‘red sea’ where devilish assignments were dished out, all for the purpose of destruction. After refusing to carry out their intentions, her disobedience backfired in the form of terrible afflictions. Eventually she got married against the severe warnings from the dark entities that possessed her. The spiritualist she went to in search of a solution said the only way out was for her to be buried alive in a grave. Desperate and pushed to her limits, she acceded and was taken to a graveyard. As the sand was slowly heaped upon her body, Mrs Ucheanya found herself spiritually transported into the ocean in the midst of demons. They said she would return to earth on the condition that love was not a word permitted in her dictionary, she would never have a child and would leave the earth aged by 30.

Florence said that her marriage had been characterized by extreme turmoil and distress. Peace was both elusive and evasive. A giant man would sleep with her on a nightly basis, causing constant fights between her and her husband, to the extent that she even kicked her husband in his male organ so that they would not be able to meet as husband and wife again. The nightmare continued as a voice began instructing her to masturbate and then to steal. Anytime she went to public places, a nauseating urge would overpower her to take items, only regaining her senses after the damage was done. It came to a point in her life that suicide seemed the best option as her whole existence became hellish and miserable!

It was at this lowest ebb of her life that hope came in an extraordinary form. Her spiritual husband appeared to her physically to say that death was nigh as he was assigned to kill her that night. At this moment, her husband brought forth the Anointing Water he had received at The SCOAN and ministered it in the atmosphere, knowing that an intense spiritual combat was ensuing. Suddenly, Mrs Ucheanya saw Prophet T.B. Joshua appear in the room, stretching forth his hand towards her violent spiritual husband who was attempting to strangle her. At that moment, she saw fire descend and consume the demonic being! Thereafter, the family decided they must visit The SCOAN for total deliverance. The kingdom of darkness however had a sinister plan. The satanic forces visited her to say that she was being sent to The SCOAN to fight and destroy Prophet T.B. Joshua; and so she became more reinforced for the battle of light and darkness in The SCOAN.

At The SCOAN Prayer Line, a mighty spiritual battle occurred. As Prophet T.B. Joshua approached her, a bestially demonic anger welled up within Florence and she attempted to attack. However, her effort to move towards the prophet was thwarted by a blinding light that erupted from where he was standing. At this point, Mrs Ucheanya saw Heavenly angels surround The SCOAN environment, alongside a tall man in brilliant light whose name was written on his chest, ‘Son of David – Jesus Christ’. Light conquered darkness and Florence saw the demons that had manipulated and messed up her entire life leaving her body! Ever since her deliverance, Mrs Ucheanya said that she could say for the first time that she loved her husband. She no longer hears voices instructing her toward devilish vices nor is her sleep interrupted by hellish encounters. When she did see the marine forces appear to her in the dream to threaten that they would deal with her for exposing them, she subsequently saw Prophet T.B. Joshua appear to tell them to leave as she is now a daughter of Christ!

Mr Ucheanya, a professional football referee and lecturer of Mass Communication at Nigeria’s Federal Polytechnic, Bida, testified that his wife had completely become a changed person after her deliverance. He exhorted people to know the value of the blessing God had given to this generation in the form of Prophet T.B. Joshua believing that the setbacks in his professional career are now a thing of the past since the forces behind his stagnancy had been removed through the deliverance of his wife. He advised couples encountering marital challenges not separate when such spiritual entanglements manifest but rather they should seek deliverance from Jesus Christ.

 

PASTOR SET FREE FROM MASTURBATION AND LUST

Image

Pastor Daniel Dogbe from Ghana was addicted to masturbation for 25 years. This problem had affected his business, marriage, ministry and everything about him. As a minister of God, he had tried on his own to pray against it, but it just was not working. One day, a police officer introduced him to Emmanuel TV and advised him to always touch the screen of Emmanuel TV for prayer. He did and instantly, something came out of him and that was the end of the 25 years of battle with masturbation and lust that had wrecked his life. Since then, his life, business and everything about him has changed to the glory of God. He is now being invited to many countries to preach the gospel. It has been about a year after his deliverance through praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. He has not had the urge to masturbate anymore. He advised other pastors who are fighting urges of the flesh not to be deceived by the devil with pride, but to look for other anointed men of God who can set them free. “Many pastors are ashamed to come here and this is what is responsible for their limitation. I am calling all of you to come here and receive your deliverance,” he said, joyfully praising the Lord!

 

OPERA SUPERSTAR DELIVERED THROUGH ANOINTING WATER!

Miss Kimmy Skota, a world renowned opera singer, was extraordinarily gifted yet faced terrible nightmares and career setbacks. She was privileged to travel worldwide with Andre Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra to audiences of millions, yet anytime she was about to sing, a strange tremor would grip her voice and hands, oftentimes affecting the quality of her performance. She would shake and shiver with fear. All this, she kept to herself until, one day, she confided in an old friend. The friend introduced her to Emmanuel TV. She watched evil spirits manifest in people, claiming to be responsible for their setbacks and other strange habits. She was dumbfounded and realised it was deliverance she required to break out of the cycle of limitation in progress that had plagued her life and career. After hearing about the Anointing Water Revival in Birmingham, UK, she decided to fly from her base, the Netherlands, to UK to receive a special touch from Heaven. After being ministered with the Anointing Water, the evil spirit within her manifested and spoke: “We buried her photo, she will never shine again. On stage we make her shake and she becomes afraid!” But darkness shall never prevail over light. The demon was cast out by the superior power in the name of Jesus Christ. Ever since her deliverance, Kimmy testified that all fear, nightmares and the strange tremors that affected her vocal performance completely disappeared.

Image

“I want to thank Jesus for saving my life,” she tearfully concluded. The South African-born opera singer then raised her great voice to God as she sang before The SCOAN congregation: ‘Pie-Jesu – Merciful Jesus’ and later ‘Panis Angelicus – Bread of Angels’.

 

DOUBLE BREAKTHROUGH

Image

Dr Towindo Tichaona, a Finance Director from Mozambique, came to The SCOAN to testify to the goodness of God in his and her wife’s life. For the past three years, he had been struggling with his doctoral degree program. Two weeks before his graduation, he received a call from the director of the university where he was studying telling him that one of the subjects must be sat for again without which his graduation along with others would be a mirage! His wife visited The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water and the Anointing Sticker which he dubbed as ‘TBJ machine gun’. He prayed that God should help him to correct each mistake in his thesis. He placed the Anointing Sticker on his thesis and ministered the Anointing Water to each page of his thesis and, to the glory of God, the spirit of setback was cast away and he received favour from above. His thesis was instantly approved. Out of the 30 people who started the doctoral program, 27 dropped and only three remained. He is one of the three people and the graduation was not postponed. The graduation was presided over by president of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, who handed over his degree. Two weeks ago, Dr Tichaona was also promoted with a salary twice as much as before.

His wife also testified that during her visit to The SCOAN, her prayer point was that God should open the door of breakthrough for his family. When she went back to Mozambique, she was scheduled for a job interview which she passed without answering any tough question – it was just like chatting. She was then granted a job as an auditor. Indeed, Jesus can make a way, even when there seems to be no way!

JESUS TURNED BREECHED BABY AROUND

Mrs Modupe Akintunde from Kaduna State, Nigeria came to The SCOAN with a problem of breech presentation of her baby. She had been experiencing extraordinary pains with her pregnancy. She went to the hospital for examination where an x-ray, exposed a breeched baby. The doctor advised the only way out for her would be for her to go for an operation in order to save her life and the baby. Her husband, who had seen similar cases reversed in the mighty name of Jesus Christ at The SCOAN, decided otherwise. He rushed her to The SCOAN where she was arranged at the prayer line. Immediately she saw Prophet T.B. Joshua, even before the prayer, her baby started turning to the normal position and the pain disappeared. She delivered her baby safely without any operation. Praise the Lord! What doctors cannot do, Jesus can do it for you!

The Sunday service closed with Mass prayer which the wise men ministered and, glory to God, many evil spirits were exposed and cast out in the name of Jesus Christ. Remain blessed and we look forward to receiving your testimony this New Year, 2014!
