ImageThe man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, straight from a pastors’ conference in South Korea, on Sunday engaged the congregation with an inspiring and powerful teaching on faith. Referring to various scriptures in the Bible, he said people should not look at themselves as the basis for faith but at God because faith cannot be manufactured. Faith, he explained, grows naturally and spontaneously the more one knows God.

“Never ask yourself if you have faith. The more you ask yourself these questions, the less your faith. We are not talking of faith in faith or faith in yourself; we are talking of faith in God. You cannot manufacture faith. If faith would be in pastors or saints, faith would be weak and fragile,” he said, adding, “Faith is holding on to what God has promised. Whether your faith is great or small is not the issue. The issue is, if God has promised, will He lie or change? Your coming here shows you know God. And when you know God, faith will spontaneously grow. You are committing yourself and your things to Someone smarter, cleverer and more powerful – that is why you are here.”

Aided by the scriptures in John 14:25-27 and Romans 10:17, he said, “Faith comes out by hearing the Word of Christ. If my Father promised me something, I believe He will give me that thing. My belief is solid because I believe on the promise of my Father. If God’s Word is Spirit, it is capable of developing a spiritual force within our heart called faith. Ask God to give you the grace not to be ignorant of your faith under the tension and pressure of your sickness, disease, temptation, limitation.”

Earlier in the day, Wise Man Christopher preached a life-transforming message titled, ‘Positive Examples’ whose proof text was Matthew 5:17-20 and centred on the lifestyle of Jesus Christ as a worthy example who stood against evil not just by His Words but also by His deeds.

ImageHe explained, “Many have fallen because of being influenced by people who set a bad example. All of us have had a father, friend, mentor or coach but not all of us have had a father, friend, mentor or a coach we want to be like. This ought to motivate us to seek out a worthy example. Jesus Christ, the Son of the living God, is the worthy example. When we have a relationship with Jesus Christ, we will change and become men or women who are directed by the Holy Ghost, not by the influence of others. Only then, are we Christians.”



This is no drama. It is a true manifestation of how no weapon fashioned against God’s children, shall prosper. On the fateful day, ImageMr Ikechukwu Muomalu who is based in South Africa had gone to the bank to withdraw a large sum of money. Mounted on a motorbike, he headed home. Little did he know that armed robbers were tailing him for the money. As he drove past a bustling market street, he was pulled over and ordered to hand over the cash. He hesitated when, suddenly, one of the robbers pulled out his gun, uncorked it, and pointed it at him. It was now a matter of life and death with only the money in his bag a deciding factor. Just then, before he could hand over his cash, he remembered something precious he was carrying in his pocket – the Anointing Sticker! Thrusting his hand in his pocket, he fished out the Anointing Sticker and flashed it at the armed robbers who looked astonished. But what was more astounding was that they wilted, retreated and sped off! No bullet was fired and no money snatched. The powerful hand of God, invisible to the human eye, had reigned.

Previously, Mr Muomalu used to be a target of armed robbers. His location was frequently attacked and he was not spared. He was also facing financial limitations to the extent that he could not take proper care of his family until he came to The SCOAN where he received the Anointing Water and Stickers. Gradually, his fortunes improved and his faith that God can use any medium to manifest His power, strengthened. Confronted with the armed robbers situation, he could think of no other amour but that of Jesus Christ through the Anointing Sticker.

He advised, “Whatever situation you are in, put your trust in God, and solution will come.”



ImageIn spite of all his credentials, Mr Odekina Abimaje was frustrated by nine years of stagnation and career failure. He remained a lecturer at the same federal polytechnic without promotion and did not even have the opportunity to progress a PhD ambition. He recalled working hard like a horse but had nothing to show for it until he ran to The SCOAN. During his visit to The SCOAN, he was touched by one of the Wise Men and he did not fall as he had expected to be assured that he had been indeed delivered. Having collected the Anointing Water and Anointing Sticker, he returned home and placed the Anointing Sticker between his credentials. When he retired to bed, he had a dream of Prophet T.B. Joshua who picked and rubbed Mr. Abimaje’s credentials on his chest and then put them back on his desk and left. While pondering over the significance of the dream, Mr. Abimaje decided to visit his mother. While there, he came across one of his friends who casually asked him about his current job. After listening to Mr. Abimaje’s frustrating story, the friend did not only ask him to consider working at a state polytechnic but also collected the former’s credentials to hand in. Within a matter of days, Mr. Abimaje’s friend invited him to collect his appointment letter to lecture at the new polytechnic, where he would see his salary tripled. In a subsequent development, Mr. Abimaje went on to pursue his doctorate research.

“You need to know the value of what you have. This is the arena of liberty,” he advised.



Mr Vincent Achinuke, living in the US, explained how he had worked in a company as supervisor for a number of years. One day, the upper management met him that two employees needed to go, so he should find something, anything against them. He told them that he did not want to have a hand in it. Immediately, they fired him and relieved him of his duties. Shortly after that, his two house tenants were relocated to different states due to their job demands, resulting in a sudden financial break down. He sat depressed on his couch and slept for a whole day when he awoke to Prophet T.B. Joshua praying on Emmanuel TV for viewers to claim their career. He quickly joined in and believed within him that his trouble had come to an end. Three days later, he received a call from the area manager of an oil company, saying that they had seen his profile online and asked if they could meet. Mr Vincent happily agreed and was given the position of operations manager. His salary now is double what he used to receive and he will spend half of his work time this year in Saudi Arabia and the rest in the US.Image

He said, “When you make Jesus Christ Lord and Saviour of your life and situation – He will see you through.”



ImageFor eight years, Mrs. Enobong Utin’s daughter, Miss Edidiong Utin, suffered from a chronic paranoid schizophrenic condition and had to live on cocktails of medications. The extent of the dosage she had to ingest compromised the state of her heart and consequentially reduced her mental alertness. Over the years that followed, Miss Edidiong Utin would also have learning difficulties. As if her condition did not wear her parents down enough in the United States, one day Miss Edidiong Utin took a knife and was about to stab herself in the kitchen when her brother walked into the scene to abort the attempt.

While she shuttled her daughter between medical facilities, Mrs Enobong Utin, a professional nurse, shared her plight with her Nigeria-based brother Dr. Essien, who recommended the Anointing Water as the only solution. Although skeptical about the brother’s recommendation, Mrs. Enobong Utin travelled to Nigeria and returned to the United States with the Anointing Water.

When Mrs Enobong Utin arrived at the ward, her daughter did not know her. Disheartened by this, Mrs. Enobong Utin seized a window of opportunity at her disposal and started to minister the Anointing Water on her daughter. To her utmost surprise, demonic spirits residing inside her daughter began to manifest and confess. The first voice said, “She will not graduate.”

“Who are you?” Mrs. Enobong Utin asked.

“I am an ancestral spirit,” said the demonic spirit.

“Who else is there?” Mrs. Enobong Utin continued to confront the demonic spirits, picking courage from what Emmanuel TV had taught her.

“I am queen of the coast,” said the spirit.

In the end a total of five demons manifested and were cast out as Mrs. Enobong Utin continued to minister the Anointing Water on her daughter’s body in the blood of Jesus. Miss Edidiong Utin rolled her eyes back and forth and her body returned to calmness. As she remained still and stared at her mother, Mrs. Enobong Utin heard her daughter say, “Mum, how are you?” To God be the glory, Miss Edidiong Utin was totally restored and freed from the agents of chronic schizophrenic condition.

Showing the related BEFORE and AFTER medical reports, a beaming Mrs. Enobong Utin said that “the Anointing Water” works.



Mrs Nwaigwe was one month overdue and doctors said they would have to artificially induce her. Mr Victor Nwaigwe and his wife were not comfortable with that. They were informed by a friend about the Saturday healing Service at The SCOAN and they decided to come along but there was no service on that day. He got into conversation with a man who gave them the Anointing Water. He thanked the man but told him that he just needed a pastor or one of the evangelists to minister the Anointing Water to his wife. The man assured him that once he was at The SCOAN his troubles were over so he should just go ahead and minister the Anointing Water himself. He took the man’s advice, they took the Anointing Water, ministered it and went to eat at the canteen.Image As they finished eating she began to feel labour pains. He was shocked that the effect of the Anointing Water happened so soon. He quickly set about taking her to the hospital. Upon arrival she was checked and was ready for delivery. So she was taken to the delivery room and the baby began to come out but they saw the umbilical cord had wrapped itself around the baby’s neck. They quickly had to cut the cord which was successful and the baby was born safely despite great challenges on every side!

After going through such an experience Mr Nwaigwe said, “Forget what you think you know just come to Jesus – He is who he says He is – just believe.”



ImageAfter five years of uncertainty, wondering as to whether Mr Adeyemi’s manhood and Mrs Adeyemi’s menstrual cycle would ever respectively return to each of them, the Anointing Water became their only hope. Under the circumstance, the thought of ever achieving conception to bring a child into the world was akin to chasing a mirage. They made it to The SCOAN where they received the Anointing Water and ministered it to themselves in Jesus’ name. Lo and Behold! The miracle thing happened — Mr Adeyemi told his wife that his manhood had returned. Excited by the great news, Mrs Adeyemi experienced a change in her system at the instant. She beamed and told her husband that her menstruation had also started to flow. The excited family celebrated their joy, and later met as husband and wife. Mr. Adeyemi became pregnant, went through a safe delivery and now they have a healthy baby to share in their testimony. To God be the glory!

When you know God is reliable, faith comes spontaneously, faith grows spontaneously. These were the deep-reaching words from Prophet T.B. Joshua as he ministered to thousands of people who had gathered at The SCOAN on Sunday and, true to the pronouncement, miracles and wonders were performed DADDYspontaneously through his prayer of faith. Working in the power of the Holy Spirit, he moved among the congregation, prophesying and commanding evil spirits out of the afflicted in the name of Jesus Christ. The demons had no place to hide as he called upon the name that is above all names, the name Jesus Christ, and reversed every yoke on individuals and nations. Many people received instant healing.
Teaching about faith, the man of God said, “The more you look at God, to God and meditate on God, the more you will have faith. Faith is natural. It is not manufactured or produced by you, it is natural. We just need to know the faithfulness and trustworthiness of God. When you know that God is reliable, faith grows spontaneously”.
Earlier on, Wise Man Harry mounted the pulpit and delivered to the congregation and worldwide viewers of Emmanuel TV, a powerful and encouraging message titled, ‘Move The Mountain’ which was backed by proof text from Matthew 17:19-20. The message centered on the need for Christians to speak the Word of faith at all times and not to confess failure, saying one cannot think about one’s troubles and at the same time think about God’s Word.
He said, “When we confess sickness, fear, and failure and so on, we magnify the adversary above our Heavenly Father, thus destroying our own confidence in God’s Word. If your confession concerning your situation comes from faith, you would embrace victory; if based on sense-knowledge, you are bound to embrace defeat”.WISEMAN HARRY
“When your confession comes from faith, you have God’s hand performing all things for you, in you and through you. Only then, you will not consider the size of your problem; no matter how big, you will move the mountain,” he added.

Below are a selected few of the many testimonies that lit up the Sunday service. Stay blessed!
Having been grounded by joblessness, stagnation, hardship and limitation in progress for four consecutive years, single mother Mrs Molly Musonza from Zimbabwe resorted to visiting The SCOAN to seek divine intervention. She was even struggling to keep her two children in the local schools. It was in the midst of her struggles with life that Mrs. Musonza visited The SCOAN where she received the Anointing Water. Having a strong desire to work in the petroleum industry in her home country, she returned home, responded to a job-related newspaper advertisement, and subsequently prepared her job application.
She ministered the Anointing Water and prayed to God to restore her. Interestingly, she received a phone call that would rewrite her financial history. She was invited to an interview for an occupation in the petroleum industry. When she arrived for the interview, she was too nervous to maintain her composure. She begged to visit the ladies, where she ministered the Anointing Water and prayed to God to turn any interview questions to her favour. She was overwhelmed for there were no questions that challenged her capacity to do the job.
God lifted her up beyond her expectations. The giant company offered her a big contract as distributor of fuel, chemicals and oils in Zimbabwe. In a subsequent development, Mrs Musonza is now proprietress of her own registered company, servicing her country with petroleum products. Now that she has had a financial breakthrough, she is able to send her children to good schools. Her daughter is now at a university abroad.

Mrs Doris Alozie, a midwife, responded to a devastating telephone call and breathlessly raced to the hospital only to find her mother in a critical condition.MRS DORIS ALOZIE Reconciling with herself that she was on the verge of dying at any moment, her mother had begun saying her final words to her father and siblings. The monitors indicated that her mother’s oxygen circulation was only 27 percent, coupled with intestinal obstruction which developed into peritonitis. Gripped by fear, Mrs Alozie reached for the Anointing Water and ministered it on her mother, in the name of Jesus Christ. Shortly after that, she heard her mother shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Her mother then asked for the bedpan and passed out a black substance, which nullified the need for an operation. Since then, she has been healthily eating well. Indeed, God had mercy on her mother and restored her back to life.

Very often when she slept, a man would come and have an affair with her in her dreams and the side effect came in the form of barrenness. For fourteen years, Mrs Julian Moshi lived a frustrating married life, every time hoping for a baby that never came. MRS JULIAN MOSHIHer loving husband was equally worried but still believed that God would perform a miracle in their life. One day, a friend gave her the Anointing Water which she and her husband ministered on themselves with faith, and then met as husband and wife. That was the end of the fourteen years of barrenness. The destructive spiritual husband was banished from their lives and Mrs Julian Moshi conceived to the chagrin of the devil. They are now the proud parents of a bouncing baby boy. To delay is not to deny. Praise God!

As if bound into a cage of visa rejections for a period of 10 years, Mr Olusola Olaolu would never get used to the frustration that followed each visa-request-turned-down. One day, a friend called to inform him about a job prospect abroad. He followed up and later received an invitation to travel abroad for work.MR OLUSOLA OLAOLU Mr Olaolu carried the invitation letter along with his passport to apply for the visa at the embassy. Looking around, he saw other people with support documents for their applications but he only had the one letter at hand. Having brought with him the Anointing Water, he ministered it and put it into his pocket. During the interview with the visa assessor, he repeatedly hit his pocket where he had kept the Anointing Water inwardly praying that Jesus Christ would come to His need. To his great surprise, while many applicants were being turned down, he was told to come back the following week, which he did and he received his visa.

Mr and Mrs Gilbert Akowanou happily looked forward to welcoming their new baby to join the family, but a scan revelation of a breech presentation reduced their enthusiasm as the clock ticked towards the operating theatre.MR&MRS GILBERT The concerned couple rushed to The SCOAN to seek a divine intervention. Mrs Akowanou had the opportunity to be arranged at The SCOAN prayer line, where Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her. Following the prayer of the man of God, Mrs Gilbert Akowanou went back to the hospital for another scan. The results showed that her baby had turned and was now in the right position. To the glory of God, she delivered her baby safely, without an operation. Today, Mr and Mrs Gilbert Akowanou are the proud parents of a beautiful baby girl.
The Sunday service, broadcast live on Emmanuel TV to millions of viewers, closed on a high note with the mass prayer ministered by the wise men.

DADDYHow mighty and yet faithful God is! He continues to reign with power, breaking yokes and setting the imprisoned free. Last Sunday was no different at The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria where He prevailed over satan who brings tension and makes people to be under bondage.  The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, ministered to both viewers all over the world and mammoth congregants who came from near and far, declaring them free, in Jesus’ name. Those afflicted with evil spirits were delivered just as the sick received healing by the power of the Holy Spirit. The man of God also led the congregation in praying for the nations of the world.

WISEMAN RASINEEarlier, Wise Man Racine preached a message, titled, INVOLVE GOD, which centred on the need to align oneself with the right direction – God’s direction – where the Holy Spirit supplies the inspiration for what to see, hear and do. Quoting Acts 16:7, he said, “God is looking for you. He sees us when we abide in His Word and His Word abides in us. He’s looking for you because He sees something you do not see. He sees far ahead. He is busy planting the seed of what you are becoming. He is looking for you because He is the Spirit of prophecy that reveals the future events; He wants to bring the future into you, showing you the direction and destination to follow”.



The service was rich with amazing testimonies too many to be featured here. We give you a few of them.



Who rescues but Jesus; who saves but God! Mr Nnamdi Isaac from Anambra State in Nigeria is a living example. One day, as he was travelling on a motorcycle in a busy street, a big bus hit him. The impact was so big that the bus had its windscreen shattered. He was left with head injuries and he passed out. His inert body was rushed to various hospitals. Later, while still in the world of sub-consciousness, he heard a voice ask him where his Anointing Water from The SCOAN was. He answered the voice, “Anointing Water, I don’t have but my Anointing Sticker, I have”. He placed his hand in his pocket and fished out his Anointing Sticker. Just as he did so, he stirred and opened his eyes. He was back to life! However, none of those in the vicinity including doctors, said that they had asked for the Anointing Water. The owner of the voice remained a mystery. But one thing was true and everyone could attest to – a Heavenly voice had spoken to him and God had brought him back to life.  Explaining the experience, Mr Isaac said that whenever he is leaving home, he prays and ministers the Anointing Water to himself and carries his Anointing Sticker with him. He advised, “Believe and trust in God. Carry your Anointing Sticker with you. God will protect you, in Jesus’ name”.



Chief Superintendent of Customs, Ugoamadi Emeka Steven was an exemplified figure of frustration. Nothing ever seemed to be working. The term ‘promotion’ had become almost non-existent. The last time he experienced a rise was in 2008 when he was promoted to the position of Superintendent of Customs Service. After that, the pulley to the top ground to a stop and watched many people fly past him. To make matters worse, promotion was dependent on the vacancies available. It was not surprising therefore that when delayed promotions were finally due this year, he became jittery. He was so anxious that he did not know what to do. CUSTOMSHe decided to run to God and came to The SCOAN where he met the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua who gave him the Anointing Water and assured him that all was well. Back home, he prayed with it, in the name of Jesus Christ, asking for God to intervene in his case because he had no power of his own. When the names were eventually released, he discovered that his prayer had not escaped the ears of God. Today, he is Chief Superintendent of Customs Service. What he could not achieve on his own, God has given him. “Hold on to God. The Anointing Water is an instrument God is using to save His people in these end times,” he said.



When Mr Benjamin Ani first came to The SCOAN, he was completely bowed down in financial bondage and looking for a quick way out of his problems. His family was experiencing financial hardship to the extent that he could not feed them the way he used to. Neither could he pay his children’s school fees. He had been a successful importer when suddenly things tumbled and crushed. All his efforts to re-establish himself yielded nothing. He was no longer the big importer he once was and was neck deep into debt. To make matters worse, he was having vicious evil attacks in which his assailants were using his wife’s face in his dreams to bring hatred and confusion in the marriage.

Reduced to nothing and living hand-to-mouth, he decided to come to The SCOAN, hoping for a divine encounter. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, called him out and gave him a prophecy. To his surprise, it had nothing to do with his financial woes or the evil forces that were giving him scary dreams. Mr Ani had expected the man of God to speak to him about his financial nightmares. Instead, the prophet asked him where his passports were. Prophet T.B. Joshua continued, saying that Mr Ani was having a hindrance with his business because if he didn’t travel, there was no way he could get his business done.

MR BENJAMIN ANI & FAMILY [FRENCH CITIZENSHIP]Working towards travelling out of the country, Mr Ani borrowed money in an attempt to get a visa to travel. He also put up his jeep for sale – that was the only property he had remaining. Every embassy he applied for a visa at turned him down and he became confused.  After all his efforts had failed, he decided to sit back and wait. Little did he know that God cannot be rushed and, at the same time, that every true prophet of God will live to see that which he has prophesied come to pass.

Meanwhile, the family had been embroiled in a citizenship dilemma. His wife was born in Germany – her father is a Nigerian while her mother is from France. The wife’s mother died when she was very small and the father brought her back to Nigeria.  Since then, there had been no contact with France. She tried to get a French citizenship but was told that it was not possible because the mother was no more and there was no way that the French government could trace where she was born.

Incidentally, after receiving the prophecy, Prophet T.B. Joshua had also given them the Anointing Water. Mr Ani prayed with it and ministered it, in Jesus’ name. They believed that the issue of citizenship would be good in every member of the family. After they filled in the forms, they submitted them.  Soon after that, the French government gave them citizenship – both the national ID card and passport! Soon, they will be travelling to France to establish themselves there.

“We should always have patience, especially when we are in a difficult situation,” he advised.




Recession is no laughing matter. It destroys unsparingly. Companies close and people lose jobs. It explains why Mr Koketso Selekanyo from Botswana was exasperated when meltdown crept into their national economy. He watched businesses close one after another and became increasingly worried over his own which specialised on selling hydraulic parts for machines. He was dismayed and asked Jesus to help give him direction.MR KOKETSO SELEKANYO [BUSINESS BREAKTHROUGH & CAR

Not long afterwards, he had the opportunity to come to The SCOAN where he was prayed for and given the Anointing Water. When he went back to Botswana, he started to pray with the Anointing Water and ministered it in his office and shop. He prayed to God to rescue his business. Before he knew it, many customers started to call his company wanting to buy from him. His company started to grow beyond his expectation. It was like there was no recession at all to the extent that he was able to buy a brand new car! Mr Selekanyo decided to share his blessings through philanthropy and started to bless the community around them. Since that time, God has blessed him tremendously and he now orders products from as far away as China.

He advised, “When problems come, kneel down and ask Jesus to give you direction. As you continue to minister the Anointing Water, God will continue to bless you more and more”.



Every time Mr Gabriel Kalumbu from Zambia stepped out of his house and headed for work, he would be worried. Not that he hated work but it was like he was working for free. He was facing serious stagnation in every area of his life. Even after working for five years for a company, he had nothing to boast about. MR GABRIEL KALUMBU [PROMOTION TESTIMONY]He travelled to many places and attended so many prayer houses in search of solution but found none. It was as if God had closed His ears to his cries. He could not help but wonder if his relentless predicament was born out of sin. It was in the midst of such a struggle with life that he came to The SCOAN where he received the Anointing Water and Anointing Stickers for his house and car. To his greatest surprise, after ministering the Anointing Water, for the first time in five years, he was called and got the promotion that had always eluded him! In line with his promotion, his salary doubled! To put icing on the cake, he was able to purchase two vehicles! He advised people to have faith in God.

Last Sunday service was another demonstration of how abundantly willing the almighty God is to set His people free from bondage and for the salvation of their souls.  The service, which was highly charged with the moving force of the Holy Spirit, was indeed another manifestation of God’s holiness and might over darkness and evil as the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua and the wise men, ministered to the congregation, in Jesus’ name, breaking all kinds of yoke in the lives of the congregants and viewers of Emmanuel TV. Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for the sick at the prayer line, prophesied and delivered many from evil afflictions in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Earlier on, Wise Man Daniel preached on a life-transforming message titled: ‘God Does As He Wills’ which centered on God’s sovereignty in executing His master plan in people’s lives. Choosing 1 Samuel 16:6-13 as proof text, he emphasised that while Prophet Samuel considered appearance, size and experience in the warfare when sent by God to anoint one of the sons of Jesse, God Himself had chosen the least among them.


He preached, “By His grace, God looked at the shepherd boy, David and saw in him a mighty king. Today, when we are looking for a friend, a partner or someone to head the church, we are tempted to look only at the externals – outward qualities such as speaking skills, educational background, ability to inspire people, friendliness and talent. God chooses grace rather than works.”  He reiterated that God is not looking for the qualified but those available; not for the proud and arrogant but the humble in heart.

“As members of Christ’s body, we should do our duties as allotted to us by God who is the giver of various spiritual gifts and not to be envious of other gift-carriers because engaging in envy and jealousy, eventually makes you to grumble, murmur and rebel against God or query His supremacy,” he said.


Following are a few of the testimonies by those who experienced the touch of God through various evangelical items from The SCOAN such as the Anointing Water, Anointing Sticker and praying with Emmanuel TV:




Hon. Isaac Kwasi Kodobisah was a smart politician in his city of Ho, Volta Region in Ghana. Many people liked him. He had all the attributes of a great politician and it was no surprise that the presidency appointed him Mayor of the city which he served with diligence until the devil came knocking and hit him with a terrible disease. What started as a mere back pain, soon aggravated into a terrible illness and his fears were confirmed when he visited the hospital one day where the doctor told him, “Sir, you have a degenerative disc disease.” Hon. Kodobisah could not believe his ears. It was like a death sentence had been pronounced on him. He knew what it meant – restricted movements which would eventually knock him out of his political career, unless a miracle was found. He could not eat or sleep and at night, he could not lie down. As a result of his situation, he could not attend public gatherings in his capacity as Father of the city of Ho. Every hospital he visited could not provide treatment. He remained confined to his bed, away from his mayoral seat. It was just in an attempt to ease the pain that one doctor advised him to use a neck collar to support him. The doctor warned that he could end up being paralysed.   

After exhausting all human efforts, Hon. Kodobisah decided to seek the Great Physician. Still in pain and supported by a neck collar, he came to The SCOAN and was placed on the prayer line where the healing power of Jesus Christ touched and operated on him. Immediately after the prayer, he heard a noise in his back and miraculously, the discs came together back into their place. The pain left him. For the first time in what had appeared to be an eternity of agony, he was able to sleep well and lie down at night. With the Anointing Water he had received, he continued to minister it in Jesus’ name every day. Within a short while, he was restored back into the original position God had created him. He is now able to move around freely to the glory of God. He believes the best is yet to come now that he is fit and of good age. He advised that our faith in God should become stronger as we face life’s challenges.



When Miss Elysia Straub visited The SCOAN last week and registered her problems for the prayer line, she had a big secret she wanted no one to know about and yet, the affliction she was keeping to herself was the reason she had come. It was like going to the hospital and telling the doctor you have a bad headache when your biggest problem is your broken tooth. ImageSuch was the shame the affliction had brought on Miss Straub that she could not find the courage to let anyone know about it. So, somehow still believing her solution would still come, she sat with her mother in the church praying for a ‘private’ miracle until the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, walked to her and everything she had kept in secrecy for many years was made public, to the shame of the devil and the glory of God.

When asked by the man of God whether he should mention her secret problem, Elysia instantly shook her head, a big ‘no’. But the prophet was operating beyond the natural and told her that satan must be put to shame. Still, Miss Straub could not stomach the idea of her secret being exposed and repeated, “No” to preserve her embarrassing problem. However, the prophet went ahead and stated that she had the problem of bedwetting. This astonished the young girl and she instantly confirmed by saying, “Yes”, upon which the man of God prayed for her and declared her free, in Jesus’ name.

Testifying her miraculous deliverance on Sunday, Miss Straub confirmed that she had been bedwetting from childhood and that it had caused a lot of embarrassment in her life. She felt isolated, rejected and guilty within. At night, it would feel as if someone was holding her down and any time she woke up after such an experience, the bed would be wet under her. Her condition haunted her whenever the thought of getting married in future crossed her mind. She consulted many medical doctors and churches in search of solution. Alas! The problem persisted. She was not the only person in her family experiencing this embarrassment – her uncle and other family members had the same problem of bedwetting. After the prayer, she said, she felt light and since that time, she does not experience anyone pressing her down at night and she no longer has the problem of bedwetting!

“I came here to be set free and I am. Since that day, I have been happy and joyful,” she said, to the glory of God.



Twenty-two year old Gabriel Fain from the USA was on the prayer line when Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied to him, during one of the previous Sunday services at The SCOAN that he could have been in prison. Gabriel did not hesitate to confirm the prophetic message but went on to tell a horrible and embarrassing story of how, despite being brought up in a strict home, he slipped out of the hands of his police officer mother and a mentoring pastor to become a drug addict. While attending theology school, ImageGabriel stumbled upon illicit drugs, tried them and got chained to them for a very long time in his youthful years. He would sneak away from home, the church and the theology school to satisfy his “undying” flame for drugs of various types. Not only did his continued use of hard drugs compromise his mental faculty, speech and physical well-being but it also rendered him homeless. Apart from deriving joy in getting high after taking the drugs, Gabriel recalled that he always passed out on the smallest quantity he took. On several occasions, whenever he visited the restroom and took drugs, he would pass out and was always found half-naked. There was a time when the police cautioned a disoriented Gabriel for exposing himself in public.

Alarmed by the rate at which Gabriel’s health was deteriorating, the mentoring pastor sent Gabriel off to return to his mother. The pastor gave him an Anointing Sticker and a plane ticket to go back home. With his reduced mobility, Gabriel had to be wheeled at the airport. Upon arrival, his mother did not recognise him; Gabriel had to wave to attract her attention.  At home, he started watching Emmanuel TV on the internet. During one of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s prayers that engaged the viewers, Gabriel touched the screen and prayed with him and all of a sudden, his speech returned to him. He started to sound intelligible from that point on. His relationship with God started to improve. He decided to come to The SCOAN where he received a word of prophecy from Prophet T.B. Joshua, who told him to disconnect from three past friends who had a toxic relationship with him. Gabriel has since disconnected from his bad past.

“Since my deliverance, I do not have the desire for drugs anymore,” he said and advised the youth to quit drugs, saying, “The devil is out there to steal your soul”.



Enslaved and chained by the spirit of smoking for 20 years, Uchenna Okonkwo admitted that he had done everything within his humanImage powers to stop the habit. He used to smoke different brands of cigarette and up to 40 sticks a day. Mr Okonkwo subscribed to medical doctors’ collective recommendation that he should undergo therapy to alleviate the addiction. His attempt to get rehabilitated fell flat; he remained a chain-smoker. Throughout his one-man battle against an addiction he had wanted to kick out of his life, Mr Okonkwo did not have prior knowledge about Emmanuel TV. One day, he travelled to Nigeria with foreign investors. While at the hotel, he was flipping through television channels when he suddenly stumbled on Emmanuel TV. He watched Prophet T.B. Joshua pray for viewers and something pushed him to join in the prayer as the man of God prophetically said, “Viewers all over the world, anything that connects you to a bad habit, be broken in Jesus’ name.”

After the prayer, Mr Okonkwo fell asleep, and his heart’s desire to depart from the smoking habit culminated in an encounter he would have in his dream.  He saw Prophet T.B. Joshua wearing a white garment and shiny face pray for him. When he woke up the next morning and tried to smoke a cigarette, his body resisted. After his in-sleep deliverance from smoking, Mr Okonkwo decided to visit The SCOAN to meet for the first time Prophet T.B. Joshua whom God had used to deliver him. When he came, he sat at the back away from the view of Prophet T.B. Joshua and told himself, “If indeed he is a man of God, he will locate me here.”

To his greatest amazement, as Prophet T.B. Joshua moved about ministering to people, he came to where Mr Okonkwo sat and told him, “This is foreign affair. I don’t know how it will happen. There is a certain document of yours in a foreign country. It has to do with immigration issue.”

Convinced that his deliverance from the 20 years of smoking addiction through a dream after watching Emmanuel TV was not ordinary and that the prophetic message he received in person demonstrated that Prophet T.B. Joshua is a true man of God, Mr Okonkwo advised, “Distance is not a barrier to your healing and deliverance. Have faith that it will work for you. It is real”.



For South African residents Chief Maxwell and Miss Linda Ejiogu, their marriage of many years was no better than a horror movie that should have ended sooner than it started. It was like the devil had hijacked it and smashed it on the sharpest of rocks, disintegrating it into bits and pieces. Image South African-born Linda Ejiogu had been married to her Nigerian husband for at least 17 years but their matrimonial home in South Africa had never known peace in the true sense of the word. They had an on-and-off stormy relationship to the extent that Mrs Linda Ejiogu finally resorted to filing divorce papers. Their daughter, Ngozi was also caught in the midst of the domestic battle. Chief Maxwell had decided to keep Ngozi in Nigeria under the pretext of mastering the Nigerian culture. But Linda wanted her daughter back, and so she considered involving the authorities. As a result of such tom-and-jerry type of domestic affairs, the bench, therefore, became their only problem-solving premises until she came to The SCOAN and the man of God prophesied to her about her marital problems and sent for the husband in a divine effort to bring the broken marriage together.

Left jaw-dropped by the revelation, Linda accepted back all the divorce and other court papers that had been served her husband. On his part, Chief Maxwell expressed that upon shaking hands with the man of God, the then “unquenchable” anger in him became extinguished at the instant. He told the congregation that when the man of God stated that their marriage was from Heaven, he felt calm. “I love my wife,” he said, and Linda lit up with a warm smile across her face.

Expressing her belief and trust in the man of God, Linda reckoned that her marriage could still work. For a couple who could not see eye-to-eye before, they started engaging each other in cordial and healthy conversations thanks to the deliverance they received at the prayer line. Having previously felt rejected, undesired, and the like, Linda expressed her gratitude for the existence of Emmanuel TV. She said that she would not have known about God’s existence if not for Emmanuel TV. She also put across her willingness and desire for the two of them to raise their children together as a family.

A formerly easy-to-anger Linda has now transformed into a calm person and departed from the habits of smoking and consuming alcoholic beverages. In her testimony, she expressed how she now sleeps peacefully since her deliverance at The SCOAN. “All is well with my family,” she added. She also said that upon her return to South Africa, she will meet with her attorney to withdraw the divorce papers.

Sharing the joy in the reunion of her parents, Ngozi said that when she first heard that her parents wanted to divorce, it made her sad and unhappy. “But now, I am so happy for what Jesus has done,” she said. Based on their experiential insight, the couple advised married couples to always seek the face of God first. Thanking God for the assistance they received through Prophet T.B. Joshua, “It is important to have God as the foundation for marriage,” they agreed.

The service ended with a mass prayer ministered by the wise men.

Prophet T.B. Joshua

Prophet T.B. Joshua

Last Sunday was, by all descriptions, one of shocking revelations as light subdued darkness and triumphed over wicked principalities that have continued to perpetrate evil among mankind! What started like any normal day of worship at The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria blossomed and erupted into a day of glory when the name of the Lord was hugely magnified as He demonstrated His infinite power to protect and defend His children from evil machinations!

The service began with a message from Wise Man Christopher who taught on the nature of God as Spirit and why He is worthy of all the glory. He preached with boldness and insight on the message: “THE REAL OBJECT OF WORSHIP”, beseeching the congregants and viewers of Emmanuel TV to know the God they worship lest they give reverence to idols – anything that is placed above God in their hearts. Aided by the scripture in John 4:23-24 as proof text; he said God is Spirit for He is an infinite and eternal mind, an intelligent being, incorporeal, immaterial, invisible and incorruptible. If God were not a Spirit, he said, He could not be perfect, infinite, eternal, independent, or the Father of spirits.

He said, “If we do not worship God who is a Spirit in the Spirit, we neither give Him the glory due to His name nor do we perform the true act of worship from which we can hope to obtain His favor and acceptance. Therefore, we miss the end of the worship which is the salvation of our souls. Then, it means we worship ourselves.”

Wise Man Christopher said because God is Spirit, Christ came to declare God to mankind that God is a Spirit in the Spirit. “Remember, in the beginning, God, a Spirit, spoke and created the material. This shows that the Spirit is greater than the material. Therefore, we no longer need to go after the symbol when the real object is around, and Jesus is the real object of worship. By His resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ has demonstrated that He is worthy of being the object of our faith, belief and the centre of our own world,” he said.

The service would not be complete without the amazing testimonies from people of all walks of life, recounting their miraculous breakthroughs, healings and deliverances through various mediums from The SCOAN. Here are but a selected few. Stay blessed as you read on.

The phone rang. Not again, Dr Catherine grimaced. She had just received her salary and was accustomed to the bad news that would immediately accompany this. Another family member had died. As she dropped the phone, thoughts began racing. She was a senior lecturer at a prestigious Nigerian University with a healthy salary yet as quickly as the money came, it seemed to disappear.

Dr Catherine

Dr Catherine

Whether it was organizing the burial of a late family member, attending to sudden responsibilities that emerged without any invitation or spending on hospital bills for strange ailments – money could not stay in her hands. Instead of her to spend money, it was spending her! It was becoming too much. As lectures concluded one day and students left the classroom, Dr Catherine returned to her office, knelt down by her chair and began to weep. Unbeknown to her, a student was in the vicinity. Moved at her lecturer’s tears, the student advised her to buy a cable with Christian channels, specifying that if she could tune into Emmanuel TV, her situation would turn around!

Through watching Emmanuel TV, hope resurfaced for the lecturer and she decided to visit The SCOAN. Her financial situation was so severe that she even had to borrow money from fellow lecturers to visit Lagos. The receiving of the Anointing Water signaled the start of a remarkable chain of events that transformed Dr Catherine’s fortunes. The strange events that encroached her each time she received her salary, disappeared, enabling her to save up some funds for the very first time! Shortly afterwards, she was able to buy a car of her own. She further testified that because the Anointing Sticker was placed on her car, even though she lived in an area notorious for criminals, no single thief touched her car. Thereafter, she began planning towards building a house, incredibly having the opportunity to purchase a plot of land. With the foundations for her new house already in place, indeed, the cycle and curses of limitation have been broken in the life of Dr Catherine Agbor.

Bleep. Bleep. Bleep. The continuous drone of the life support machine was only the signs of life for the young baby of Goitseone Sekolokwane. Her twins were born prematurely, one dying shortly after birth. The other was diagnosed to have a hole in her heart and chances of survival were medically determined as being practically non-existent. Even if she were to survive, the grim prognosis was that she would be disabled for life, unable to talk or walk. With various tubes fixed to her body and machines littered around, the bed where she lay was a vast medical attempt to preserve the life of the young baby who was a mere 0.6kg when she was born at just 24 weeks. The Motswana who is a resident in Atlanta, Georgia was on the verge of despondency. Doctors had told her never to remove the tubes that enabled her to feed safely but, moved at the desperate sight of her child slowly dying, she decided to remove the tubes and feed her with a bottle.

Goitseone Sekolokwane

Goitseone Sekolokwane

Once nurses discovered this, Mrs Sekolokwana was charged to court for violating the doctor’s orders and her child was snatched from her care.

Desperation at its peak, Goitseone decided to visit The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria, where she was privileged to receive the Anointing Water. The first miracle was a judge acquitting her of maltreating her child and enabling the baby to be returned to her. From there, she began ministering the Anointing Water every day to her baby whilst ensuring she complied with all the medical requirements given to her. Several months later, while returning to the hospital for a checkup, the doctors in charge of her case called her to enter their office. Amazed, they told her that her baby was completely healthy and no longer needed medical devices to support her! Two years later, she is now a healthy, happy child who is walking, talking and boisterously enjoying her young life!

“God of T.B. Joshua, save me!” It was a desperate plea triggered by desperate circumstances. A gun was pointed at Yigermal Embeka’s head. His vehicle, filled with goods for his shop in South Africa, had been carjacked by a large group of notorious bandits. The young Ethiopian had been travelling towards Johannesburg when several vehicles surrounded him, forcing him to halt.

Yigermal Embeka

Yigermal Embeka

Yigermal heard his captives arguing angrily among themselves. His prayer was seeing instantaneous results! As the disagreement within the hijackers heightened, so Mr Embeka’s prayers intensified. Shortly afterwards, the armed bandits pushed him out of the car and sped off. His life was safe but his car was still in custody of the assailants. However, Yigermal was not worried, for the car had the Anointing Stickers.

After contacting the police and describing the scene, he was told the chances of the car’s recovery were extremely slim. His faith didn’t flinch. He told the police that an identifying feature of his car was an Anointing Sticker from T.B. Joshua, written, ‘Let love lead’. Several hours later, a bemused policeman called him back, asking him to clarify about the sticker he said was on his vehicle. “Sir, your car with that sticker on it has been found and nothing has been taken,” he told him! Mr Embeka further added that at the time of his initial visit to The SCOAN he was a struggling businessman but since his return, he is now the proud owner of five flourishing shops!

Just end it all. Dangerous thoughts whirled within. As Mr Ubon Ukpong held the disheartening medical document in his hand, suicide seemed like an easy way out of the misery. In the prime of his youth, Mr Ukpong had been tested positive to the deadly disease of HIV/AIDS. Dreams, hopes, ambitions seemed to crumble as the full realisation of what the report he was holding actually meant, dawned on him. As he struggled to compose himself, his brother arrived home. Telling him the grim news, the brother encouraged him not to lose hope, advising him to continue searching for solution. Four years down the line and Mr Ukpong’s condition had deteriorated. The once vibrant and athletic young man was a shadow of his old self.

Mr Ubon Ukpong

Mr Ubon Ukpong

Plagued by persistent weakness and internal aches, he barely scaled through his education and was unable to engage in any form of strenuous activity.

Introduced to Emmanuel TV while in Yobe State doing his NYSC, he decided to take a step of faith and visit The SCOAN in Lagos. Arranged at the prayer line in 2008, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for him in the power of the Holy Spirit. As he stretched forth his hand towards Mr Ubon, he testified, a weight fell from his shoulders. Newness of life and vigour were restored in a glorious and Holy Spirit inspired instant. Several months later, Mr Ubon returned to the same hospital, a Federal Medical Center that had initially diagnosed him. The results were astounding: negative!

Readers, what is your situation? If God could reverse the case of Mr Ubon Ukpong from a positive, deadly and incurable virus to negative – there is no curse in your life God cannot reverse!

Mr and Mrs Prince Emeka Jideofor faced nine years of childlessness, and did not know where certainty of ever becoming a parent would come from, as medical doctors’ diagnosis reported that the husband had a low sperm count and the wife, a tube blockage.

Mr and Mrs Jideofor

Mr and Mrs Jideofor

Described as an emotionally and psychologically distressing nine-year period without a child in their matrimonial home, the couple experienced neglect and abandonment. Mr Jideofor lamented over how it became an unbearable sight any time he came across a pregnant woman. This forced him to sometimes ask God, “When will I see my own?” On her part, Mrs Jideofor is a professional nurse who had helped others overcome their challenges while she battled with hers. Alas! She could not help herself. After exploring a number of sources for a solution to achieve conception without any luck, a friend introduced the couple to The SCOAN where they met Prophet TB Joshua, who blessed them with the Anointing Water. The couple went home, held hands, prayed and ministered the Anointing Water. They then met as husband and wife, and three months later Mrs Jideofor visited a local hospital where she was confirmed positive to being pregnant. They now have a healthy child. To God be the glory!

The couple urged everyone to believe in God even in impossibilities and have faith until the appointed time comes! “God will do it because He is God! God did not abandon me and will not abandon His people,” added Mr. Jideofor.

The snake’s venom seemed to sink deeper. Pain erupted. Mr Chukwuemeka awoke with a scream from the dream. The python, his constant nocturnal companion, had struck again. Plagued by terrible nightmares coupled with barrenness for five long years, Mr Chukwuemeka decided to visit The SCOAN, despite discouragement from friends. Whilst sitting in The SCOAN congregation, Prophet T.B. Joshua walked straight towards him and began to prophesy. He revealed the devilish attacks he was encountering resulted from his idolatrous background, speaking further about turmoils in his career and family. Every prophetic word was accurate, leaving Mr Chukwuemeka and his wife in tears. The night after the prophecy, a divine encounter transpired. The snake that usually came to attack him any time breakthrough was nigh returned once again.

Mr and Mrs Chukwuemeka

Mr and Mrs Chukwuemeka

This time, however, he saw three men clothed in white appear to strike the snake dead and declare his problems over!

That was the beginning of the couple’s breakthrough! The curse of barrenness and backwardness had been broken! Shortly afterwards, his wife fell pregnant. Nine months later, the miracle that God had started at The SCOAN with the prophecy was completed at The SCOAN! Wise Man Christopher prayed for Mrs Chukwuemeka, who was heavily pregnant and was experiencing complications in delivery. Immediately after the prayer, during the first prophetic Saturday service at The SCOAN, she delivered a baby boy! To celebrate Emmanuel TV’s eighth birthday and in acknowledgement of the remarkable testimony in their lives, they named their new baby boy Emmanuel!

Prophet T.B. Joshua drew people’s attention to a particular deliverance that happened in The SCOAN last year. Replaying the video, the congregants were shocked to discover that as a lady was delivered by Wise Man Christopher, a physical vapour or smoke was seen leaving her body, clearly caught on camera. In her testimony, Mrs Prudencia Ngwenyi, from Cameroon, explained that she was from a family stooped in idol worship.

“I grew up with these demons. I didn’t know anything like God, prayer or worship. This kept tormenting me. I was passing through hell,” she said. Getting married at the tender age of 16, her marital home was characterised by constant fighting and violence. However, it was in 2008 when Prudencia opened a Facebook account that demons within her became all the more evident.

Mr and Mrs Prudencia Ngwenyi

Mr and Mrs Prudencia Ngwenyi

“I went to the internet and opened a page on Facebook. I put my naked picture there. The next day, I saw a man who wanted to be a friend.” The ‘man’ said he would help her with $30,000 if only she purchased some items for him in Cameroon. She complied but before sending her account number to him, requested to see his picture. The image that arrived the following day was shocking!

She narrated, “I saw a picture of a demonic elephant. That night, in my dream, a giant man appeared to me, saying I would work for him and seduce men to his kingdom.” From that day, Prudencia became an agent of satan, bleaching her body and going out to look for men to seduce them. It was only after viewing Emmanuel TV and seeing a similar case that Prudencia realized she desperately needed deliverance.

When Wise Man Christopher prayed for her, Prudencia explained that she saw the demons within her actually leaving her body – an old lady, a lion and a big snake.

“All of a sudden, I found myself on the floor. Something left me and another thing came in!” Ever since her deliverance, Prudencia testified that her life had totally transformed. Her marriage is now peaceful, her business prosperous and the terrible nightmares she once had have become a thing of the past. “I thank Jesus for saving my life, for putting the devil to shame,” she said.

The service came to a euphoric close with the Mass Prayer ministered by the Wise Men. To God be the glory!

Last Sunday was one filled with glorious worship and spiritual upliftment for those that congregated at The SCOAN, Lagos. There was evident movement of the Holy Spirit as the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, prayed for people and declared them free from affliction, sickness and disease, in the name of the Deliverer and Healer, Jesus Christ.

The man of God, aided by scriptures from John 16:33 and 1 Corinthians 10:13, said there PROPHET T B JOSHUAis no cause for worry and depression when faced with temptation and tribulation because God is no man that can lie about the escape route He has for Christians.

“Crisis will come but be of good cheer. When you know where you are going, whatever happens to you – cancer or tribulation – cannot change your focus. God is not a man that lies. If the revelation comes that you will get there, you will get there. That temptation is a blessing; it will make you stronger. Don’t lose your focus,” he said, adding:

“That you are a Christian does not mean you will not encounter challenges. There will be challenges, tribulations – run to God, don’t run from Him. Instead of worrying about things around you, the situation you have, run to God. He has promised He will not allow your challenges or situations beyond what you are able.”

WISEMAN HARRYEarlier on, in his message titled: The Words Of Your Mouth, Wise Man Harry took the congregants and viewers of Emmanuel TV to the Scripture in 1 Samuel 17:41-47. He said one thing in common between David and Goliath was that both of them confessed victory. The difference was their faith; David confessed what he believed.

He explained, “David spoke the word of faith and the giant fell. It was the word of faith coming out of David’s mouth that produced an overcoming Spirit in him. When you realise that you will never rise above your confession, you are getting to the place where God can really use you. You must learn the value of God’s Word on your lips,” he said.



The service glittered with amazing testimonies that glorified God whose infinite mercy continues to set people free and uplift them to places of honour and dignity. Here are but a few of the testimonies:


Overflowing with joy, Mr and Mrs Linus Nkeamachor from Ireland came to testify how God had salvaged the remains of their marriage and made them whole again through the medium of the Anointing Water. The wife was addicted to alcohol and the family was falling apart as a result of that. She could not get up in the morning to take care of the children and take them to school. There were frequent arguments and quarrels in the home. It was against such a background that Mr Nkeamachor came to The SCOAN where he received the Anointing Water. He went back to Ireland and prayed together with his wife. To his greatest surprise, the addiction ended immediately.

Mrs Nkeamachor explained that alcohol had become her best friend and, as a result, she could not properly take care of her home and marriage. She drank all day and night long, saying she would drink alcohol like water. When her husband returned from a trip to The SCOAN in Nigeria, with the Anointing Water, he asked her to pray with him.

“It was like I woke up from four years of a bad dream,” she said.MR. & MRS. LINUS NKEAMACHOR

She also shared another testimony. She is a mother of three. Her first and second children were delivered through caesarian section. For the third time, she was also booked for an operation but close to her delivery, she had a dream in which she saw Prophet T.B. Joshua pray for her. Then, in the dream, she saw a cobweb-like substance come out of her. She woke up, went into labour and her husband rushed her to the hospital where she delivered her baby safely without any operation.

She advised, “No condition is permanent. Whatever has a beginning must have an ending. The situation you are facing will surely come to an end, in Jesus’ name.



“There is no gain in prostitution. Live for God and make God’s Word the standard for your life. Every man should to stay with his partner,” this was the advice from a young mother of one, Vivian Agbonlahor who was delivered last week from the evil spirit of prostitution. She had to be coaxed to come to The SCOAN by a friend who was concerned by the ungodly and risky lifestyle she was living. When she came, the evil spirit in her was exposed and arrested as Wise Man Harry approached and stretched his hand on her. The evil intruder identified itself as the family idol which had enslaved her and made her to sleep with men. Delivered and free, she shared her testimony:

VIVIAN AGBONLAHOR (3)She grew up in the city and when she visited the village at age 19, she was told that every member of the family had an idol and that she should step into the village river for 14 days, to collect her own. When she refused, she was told that the family idol’s spirit would get her and bring shame to her life. Later, while at a boarding school one day, she heard a voice tell her not to waste her time in bed but go out to sleep with men like other girls on campus were doing. She started prostituting, meeting with all classes of men. She said the voice spoke to her heart controlling her like a remote. For four years she lived this life, from 19 to 23 years of age.

VIVIAN AGBONLAHOR (1)She would wear revealing dresses and wait on men. She would also go to clubs, drinking and looking for men. The money she made, she would spend on alcohol. She went to other countries to do prostitution including Ghana and Cotonou. She has a child but because she wanted more money, she went outside the relationship. The father of the child got fed up and left without telling her. She said there was a time she fell into the hands of a ritualist who told her she was lucky with him otherwise, he would have killed and bundled her into a bag. Such was her lifestyle and its hazards until a friend told her of God’s love and invited her to The SCOAN. After a struggle, she came. That was how she ended up being set free.

“Ever since the deliverance, I have gone through a lot of temptation with people calling my phone to meet me at certain places but it only irritates me,” she said adding that she no longer hears the voice telling her to go out and prostitute. The urge, has completely gone. Praise God!



MR. FRANKIE TAYLORMr Frankie Taylor, a radio presenter, actor and movie producer in Ghana, was a mover and shaker of his industry in his own right. His music had changed many lives in his country and beyond. Yet, he never seemed to get the recognition he deserved for his hard work and talent. In 2013, he visited The SCOAN and had the opportunity to explain his challenges to Prophet T.B. Joshua. He told the prophet that he had been nominated for many awards over the years but never won anything. The man of God prophetically told him, “Faith is a virtue of victory, the best is yet to come.”  He took those words in faith and soon began to see that victory had become a reality in his life. He was nominated for music awards in both the UK and Canada. As if that was not enough, he was soon recognised in his own nation during the 2014 Ghana DJ Awards where he was voted Best Music Promoter. When he received the award, he publicly dedicated it to his mentor of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, at the national theatre in Ghana. He shouted, “Emmanuel!” and the whole audience replied, “God With Us!”

Offering advice, he said, “Do everything with the fear of the Lord, in all your ways acknowledge God.”


REVIVED FROM COMA (1)Miss Badenhorst from South Africa is a living testimony of how Jesus’ power of resurrection restores life. She had been involved in a horrible horse riding accident in 2004 that had led her to being in a coma. Doctors told her father that she had a less than one percent chance of living and, if she survived, she would be brain dead. She was only nine years old then. Mr Badenhorsts heard that Prophet T.B. Joshua was in Cape Town holding a revival meeting.  REVIVED FROM COMA (2)He went there and believed that if he could only get to the Man of God; his daughter would be made well. As Prophet T.B. Joshua walked past him, he reached out, took hold of the prophet’s hand and asked him for a prayer. REVIVED FROM COMA (3)The Prophet told him not to worry about his situation. Later, he had the grace to meet the man of God where he explained that his daughter, was in hospital in a critical condition, surviving only on life-support machines. Prophet T.B. Joshua gave him a handkerchief and instructed him to place it on his daughter’s ear. When he reached the hospital with the handkerchief in his hand, the doctor said that his daughter would not make it and was already removing the life support machines. Mr Badenhorst prayed and believed that through the handkerchief, Jesus would manifest His power and heal his daughter. He laid it on her ear and within five minutes, she stirred, exhaled and called to her father, “Pa”. She miraculously made a full recovery. Miss Badenhorst is now 19 years old and training as a pilot – her childhood dream.

“The only thing I can remember about my situation then was waking up in a hospital mentally fit but wondering why I was there,” she said of her experience.  She is a living testimony of God’s awesome power.


MRS. CALLISTAFive years ago, Mrs. Callista Thomas gave birth. Since that time, she started bleeding. She went to different hospitals where a number of scans were carried out. Every time it would show that she had fibroids. The doctors told her to go for an operation but she had a better idea. She came to The SCOAN where she received the Anointing Water. Immediately after ministering it, in Jesus’ name, the bleeding ceased. She went to the hospital to do a scan and, to her joy; it showed that all the fibroids were gone.



Mrs Beatrice Thomas, from the United States and her husband, are strong believers of the evangelical items from The SCOAN such as the Anointing Water, Emmanuel TV and Anointing Stickers. MRS. BEATRICE THOMASThey have placed the stickers at all doors of their apartment as contact points for their Heavenly protection. One day, she was cooking corn maize and when the husband tasted it, he discovered that it was not yet ready. He put it back on the stove and turned up the heat. They forgot about it and went out of the house. Six hours later, the corn was burning and the smoke from the pot triggered the fire alarm. Fire fighters stormed into the apartment to stop the impending tragedy only to discover that no fire had spread into the apartment which would have affected the 20 other apartments in the building. They ended up sitting in the lounge watching Emmanuel TV which is the 24 hour channel for the house. When Mrs Thomas and her husband returned home, they were shocked to see fire fighters there, confused at how the apartment had failed to catch fire and asked them which god they were serving! She told them she worships God through Emmanuel TV to which they replied, “Jesus is a cool guy”. She showed a picture of the burnt corn and advised, “It’s good to always have Emmanuel TV on.”


BABY DELIVERY (2)The glorious worship was crowned by the birth of a miracle baby delivered right at The SCOAN. Mr and Mrs Ben Edokpolor came to The SCOAN in search of solution to the problem of wrong position of the baby in the womb. They had been to the hospital where the doctor told them the way out was through an operation. The couple refused, believing that God would enable her to deliver the baby safely. At that time, there were still no contractions. They rushed to The SCOAN where BABY DELIVERY (4)Mr Edokpolor received the Anointing Water and ministered it on his wife, in Jesus’ name. Immediately, she started to feel some discomfort. Some time later, she started to experience contractions and she went into labour. BABY DELIVERY (1)Wise Man Harry prayed for her and she delivered her baby instantly without any operation. She advised viewers that there is nothing impossible for God.

The Sunday service concluded with Mass Prayer ministered by the Wise Men. Stay blessed!

Prophet T.B. Joshua

Awe inspiring, exalting and liberating, are the key words that, probably, describe last Sunday service best. From the faith-building testimonies to prophecies and teachings, the experience was as priceless to the congregants as it was to viewers of Emmanuel TV all over the world. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, continued from where he had left off the previous week and prayed for the world, asking for the blood of Jesus Christ to cover every nation for peace and prosperity.

Ministering the Word with power, he called on the congregants and viewers of Emmanuel TV to ask for God’s favour, mercy and forgiveness for their respective nations. This was a continuation of the previous week’s prayer when he cried to God for the nations of Nigeria, Cameroon, Ghana and the rest of the world especially those nations with trouble spots. The man of God then ministered at the Prayer Line where God set His people free from various evil afflictions that tormented their lives. They were declared healed from sicknesses and delivered from demons, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Evangelist Michelle

Evangelist Michelle

Earlier in the day, Evangelist Michelle preached on the topic, ‘Energised by God’, a message that urged Christians to hold onto their priceless inheritance as children of God if they are to withstand and win the battle over satan. Referring to two great men of the Bible, Moses and Stephen, she said in our spiritual walk with the Lord, there are good and hard times alike but what matters is the relationship one has with his Creator. She said the moment one gets connected to God, one is no more oneself in idea and behaviour but totally absorbed into the idea and way of our Lord and that no state of being is as rewarding as living in tune with God!

Stephen, she said, knew that the everlasting joy of finally being with his Creator after the stoning could not be equated to the temporary pain he felt as each stone pelted his mortal body.

“But, today, when the stones of rejection, intimidation, humiliation, name calling and campaign of calumny hit us; when the stones of tests and trials hit us, we need to speed up. When the stones of all kinds hit us, we need to speed up because all the attacks, I mean trials are meant for our spiritual benefit – to improve us, not to impair us because our struggles make us stronger.




Again, the service on Sunday was rich with testimonies that glorified the name Jesus Christ and His infinite power to bless, heal and deliver. Here are a selected few:



Mrs Esther James Jada, from the Republic of South Sudan, is a living testimony of how God honours the humble and rewards those who trust and wait upon him in faith. One, who was a local market girl due to limitations in life coupled with the death of her father earlier in life, now, walks the corridors of the rich and powerful. She is the Executive Secretary of the country’s Vice President.

While poverty was knocking on her door, to her surprise, a friend volunteered to sponsor her trip to The SCOAN. She came, prayed and received the Anointing Water.

On her return, she received a call from the presidency of South Sudan and to her utmost surprise, was offered a job as Executive Secretary to the Vice President of the republic. What she had desired for many years came by grace in a short while after she ministered the Anointing Water and left everything to God Almighty.

Now able to sponsor the education of all her siblings, she thanked Jesus Christ for His abundant provision in her life. She showed pictures of the beautiful house and new car God has provided her with. How wonderful God is!


Mrs Dora Wiafe-Akenteng from Ghana but based in the US, was lost for words when she stood before the congregation to testify how God had saved her from widowhood. She told of how death had robbed her of her husband, an Agric-economist, only for the resurrection power of Jesus Christ to manifest itself in their lives through the restoration of his life.


Mr & Mrs Wiafe-Akenteng

One day while in the house, her husband had complained of dizziness. She went to the kitchen to prepare him dinner. She was about to serve the food when she realised that her husband had turned pale. When she advanced to touch him, he simply fell back. As a nurse, she realised that he had become abnormally cold. His breath had also gone out of him. She was confused and worried as they were the only two in the house. The word ‘widow’ suddenly became a huge reality to her. She began thinking about how her life would be meaningless without him. “He lay lifeless in my arms – clinically dead,” she said.

She said, as one with a medical background, she had extensive experience of dealing with terminal cases and her husband had indeed lost life. In her desperation and confused state of mind, she even had difficulty dialing 911. After 10 minutes, she suddenly remembered that she had the Anointing Water in the house. She grabbed it and started ministering the Anointing Water on her husband and prayed for the resurrection power of Jesus Christ to locate him. As she ministered the Anointing Water, a force hit her husband in the back to eject him from where he lay. He vomited in the aftermath, and subsequently gasped for air.

When he woke up, he was shocked and asked his wife why he was drenched with vomit. She felt both nervous and excited, telling him that he had died and resurrected!

Her husband testified that all he could remember was waking up, seeing vomit on his clothes and asking his wife what had happened. He did not understand why she was so excited and was utterly shocked to hear that he had left the world for some minutes. To God be the glory!




Charity Musukwa

Charity Musukwa, a Gospel musician from Zambia, would have been confined to a wheel chair right now if it was not for the healing power of the Great Physician, Jesus Christ, who restored her broken bones when doctors had declared her case impossible to reverse. Ms Musukwa was on one fateful day, coming from a Gospel music event when the saloon car she was travelling in, crashed. The car spun and rolled over six times to become an instant write-off. As a result of the accident, her rib was broken from the back-bone, throwing her into a state where she could not walk. The damage was too severe to repair medically and doctors told her she would never walk again. She was given a body brace and later condemned to a wheelchair. She was always in pain and felt traumatised. The thought of never walking again was too much to comprehend. It would mean an end to her musical career and a life of total dependence. Her mother had to do everything for her, including taking her to the bathroom. She could not imagine how she would live like that for the rest of her life.

A friend brought the Anointing Water and ministered it on her, in Jesus’ name. Immediately, she felt something lifting out of her and the courage entered her to take a step. She took that first step of faith and that was the beginning. She started walking from that day. She can now walk and sing for God.

In her advice to the viewers she said, “Have faith in God. He can use any medium to express Himself in your life.”


Ask Theresa Ely and Anvor Ely and they will tell you the bitter heartache stemmed from many years of barrenness. They had reached their forties and hope for having a baby grew slimmer by the day. Theresa had been diagnosed with endometriosis while Anvor had a ridiculously low sperm count. The medical profession had done all they could to assist but there was no change. They were in need of a miracle; they needed the Creator of Heaven and earth to visit them by His grace and grant their heart’s desire.


Mr & Mrs Ely

 On visiting The SCOAN, Theresa was surprised to be one among few to receive a divine revelation from God over their case. Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied to her that she had been operated on but the purpose of the operation was not achieved.

He had also said that her menstrual cycle was not regular. After the prophecy, later in the service, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua ministered Anointing Water on her. She began to vomit immediately. All her sicknesses were flushed out by the power of the Holy Spirit, opening the door for God to act. Equally, the couple had the grace to attend the fruit of the womb meeting with Prophet T.B. Joshua and they were able to partake in touching the blessed mantle which was passed around to all congregants. That mantle proved to be the point of contact that Jesus Christ used to intervene in their case.

 They began to believe and trust in God, waiting on him alone. “I started clapping before the miracle happened”, she said. She knew that the word of the man of God was not his own but the very words of God. As if that was not enough, they saw the man of God in his office where he prayed for them and blessed them with Anointing Water. Full of faith, they prayed and ministered the Anointing Water. They met as husband and wife and she became pregnant. The pregnancy period was smooth with no complication. The proud parents held up their beautiful baby girl, named Sarah promising to train her in the way of the Lord.

Anvor likened their case to the leper who came back to give thanks even after ten of them had been cured. He rejoiced at the goodness of God in their lives. Their advice: “There is hope. Jesus is the hope. Jesus Christ is the answer to all fundamental issues of life. Trust in God and not man.”



Pastor Matthew & Family

 When Pastor Matthew got married he looked forward to a blissful family life but to his utter dismay, what he experienced was diametrically opposite. “I have seen hell on earth” he declared, vividly remembering the furious friction that had dominated their family life in the past.  A spirit of anger and confusion possessing his wife had done all it could to wreck a God-ordained marriage. Mrs Varughese would angrily smash things, break them and continually fight with her husband. When the spirit came upon her, she felt as though she had the combined power of 100 men in her. Later, she would realise what she did and bitterly regret it.

There was no peace or happiness in the home. Although they lived together, they were not eating, sleeping or talking together. They were like two strangers in the house. What was uncanny about it was that in the house, it was if hell was let loose but outside, she would be a humble, kind and gentle person. Nobody would believe what was going on behind closed doors.

Her husband carried her to many pastors in India for deliverance. She would be asked to fast and pray but the problem still continued. Truly tired of the state they were in, she began earnestly searching for deliverance and one day on YouTube, she encountered T.B. Joshua and the ministry of The SCOAN.

They determined to come to The SCOAN believing that Jesus Christ was able to put an end to the havoc. In 2011 on 27th February, they were sitting at the front at The SCOAN. The evil spirit within her was whispering to her to leave the front row and move to the back but her husband calmed her and told her to wait. A few moments later, during the time of prayer, Prophet T.B. Joshua came towards her and she saw a very bright light coming from him. The dark spirit within her could not stand the light and it was exposed. She was delivered and declared free.

Since the deliverance, the heaviness within her has left. She now sleeps soundly. The hatred, anger and bitterness have all vanished and have been replaced with love. “It is as if we are just married”, the couple declared joyfully, both struggling to hold their tears.  The man of God had also told her that she was going to help her husband in the ministry. Since then, she has been studying the Bible and started sharing the Word with people. There are now miracles taking place in the hospital where she works as a nurse as she takes the Anointing Water with her every day.

 Her advice to the world is: “It is not that demons cannot possess you if you are a believer. We all need deliverance.”

Pastor Matthew received a prophecy that he would serve the Lord fully. He testified that since the deliverance of his family, his ministry has grown and his marriage has been restored. He and his wife now discuss together and pray together. His advice was to stay in faith and never quit. “Call upon God and He will deliver you in His own time.”

Their daughter always felt alone as the only child; seeing the conflict between her parents, she had distanced herself from them. After the deliverance, there is now a better understanding in the family and their relationship with their daughter has been rekindled. Their daughter said that in 2012 she came to The SCOAN and that she received a prophecy that the same spirit that had haunted her mother was haunting her. She confirmed that she was always angry and stressed. But after the prophecy and her deliverance, there is peace and tranquility in the house. Her advice was for children. “Hold onto Jesus. When there is trouble and fighting in the house, pray and He will surely answer your prayers.”



Mr & Mrs Coetzee

“If it was not for this ministry and this deliverance, we would not be here today to say, Jesus is Lord” said Carolien Coetzee from South Africa, a lady who knows all too well the torment of demonic possession. She had been rejected and abused as a child and as a result always felt unwanted and depressed. Believing she was never good enough, she hated herself with a passion. This state of discontent led to anxiety, tension and pressure which infiltrated into her marital home. “The atmosphere in the house was always sensitive and tense” said her husband as he recalled the hours of fighting and constant friction. God had blessed the couple with a beautiful daughter but Carolien’s agitation extended to her child. She would find herself screaming at her at the slightest sign of disobedience. The evil spirit’s aim was to cause a rift in the family but the plans of satan were put to shame by the light and fire of God.

Carolien and her little daughter came to the Candlelight Service in 2012 and Wise Man Daniel prayed for her. The spirit of lust, anger and rejection within her manifested, confessing that it was from the ocean. The evil spirit confessed that its plan was to destroy the relationship between her and her daughter.

After her deliverance, she has a good relationship with her daughter and her husband. No longer tormented by self-hate, she believes and confesses that she is a child of God, loved and accepted by Him. The spirit of lust is no longer disturbing her and she now has real affection for her husband. Prior to her deliverance, she would always look for an excuse not to meet with her husband. The tension and pressure in the house has been replaced with a holy relaxation. Glory be to God! Jesus Christ is the Repairer and Restorer of broken relationships.

The service closed with Mass Prayer ministered by the Wise Men. Stay blessed!

A day of wondrous worship and spiritual transformation!  For those that worshipped at The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria and viewers of Emmanuel TV all over the world, no words probably could describe last Sunday service better. The service left the congregants with spiritual fulfilment and rebirth that will reshape their belief irrespective of their situations. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, walked into the auditorium with one edifying message: “In the past, you walked in darkness but now, you have the light of God.” The words re-echoed with more transformative power, a message delivered earlier by Evangelist Yinka who called on people not to be short-sighted by their situations, but look beyond.

Prophet T.B. Joshua said: “When one is adopted by the Holy Ghost, he has access to Jesus Christ of Nazareth and as such, should not listen to one’s situation to act out of character.” God’s Word, he said, “is the final authority.”  He enthused: “No matter the situation you are facing, God’s Word settles all questions. God’s Word is the final authority settling all matters confronting us. Don’t listen to your situation or challenges, to act out of character. Let the weak say I am strong. ‘All ye that labour, I will give you rest’, that is God’s Word.”

Prophet T. B. Joshua

Prophet T. B. Joshua

He further stated: “If you truly serve God in truth and faith, whatever situation you are facing is to prepare you. That you are serving God in truth and faith, however, does not mean you will not face challenges. It was in the midst of challenges that Jesus found me, took me and is using me today. Let your heart be fixed and established on the living Word of God. The matter is settled. When Jesus Christ was raised up from the dead, He went on the Cross for you and died for you so that you could live for Him.”

The man of God then prophesied to nations hinting on impending socio-and economic crises on the African continent. He also prophesied to the congregation, exposing hidden truths that chained people’s lives to satan so he can manipulate them and destroy their destinies. The sick were prayed for and declared healed in Jesus’ name while the afflicted were also released from their diverse bondages.

Earlier on, Evangelist Yinka delivered a strong and edifying message titled: See Beyond Your Situation. She opened the eyes of the congregants to the truth of the transformative power of Jesus Christ and told them not to be blinded by tribulations but to realize that in every situation, God is saying something.  Her proof text was from James 1:2-4; 12.

“When God is executing His plans in our lives, He also designs and arranges events which will continue to unfold until His purpose is revealed in our lives. Those events could be trial, persecution, sickness or humiliation. Remember, God oftentimes visits His people in hard times so that they may learn His way,” she said adding, “In Genesis 39, when Joseph found himself in prison, the Bible says, he did not allow the prison condition to overwhelm him. He knew that for him to be the source of freedom to his people, he had to taste imprisonment.” Evangelist Yinka

She said those who see beyond their immediate situation do not despair in the face of seeming disappointment. Also referring to the book of Daniel 6, she said God arranged the events of Daniel in exile when he was faced with the reality of life.

“A captive, a slave who was supposed to be seen and not to be heard, Daniel was condemned to die in a den of hungry lions, but he looked at his situation by faith and he saw redemption, he saw freedom and God shut the mouth of the lions. When you see beyond your pain, God will manifest to you the benefit of His great salvation. No matter the situation, always remember that when we accept adversity, enduring every pain, then we would learn what we should know; our grief will turn to gain,” she said.


By God’s grace, scores of people from all over the world, came to share their testimonies over what the Lord had done in their lives. Here are but a selected few. Be blessed as you read on:



Nine miscarriages in six years! That was the traumatizing situation Mr Kingsley Clinton and his wife, Faith, faced that they could not believe they would ever have children to call their own. The doctors they visited could not say what was responsible for the problem. After exhausting all their finances looking for an answer and almost losing all hope, they decided to come to The SCOAN for prayers where they were blessed with the Anointing Water. They had always listened to testimonies of people who had once been in their situation.

Mr & Mrs Kingsley Clinton

Mr & Mrs Kingsley Clinton

Now with the Anointing Water in their hands, they prayed with it and ministered it on their bodies, asking Jesus to remove their shame from them. One month later, Mrs Clinton conceived. The purpose for their coming on Sunday was to testify that the mother-to-be is now eight months pregnant, a feat they had never experienced in their life before the use of the Anointing Water. They thanked God for the miracle He had performed in their lives.

Pastor George from the USA testified of how the devil toyed with his life by chaining him to pornography. He was introduced to the ungodly behaviour in 1985 by a friend and it enslaved him for many years. In 2003, he gave his life to Christ but the problem became so bad that on his honeymoon following his wedding, he preoccupied his time watching pornography on television. He said his addiction to the illicit videos affected his ministry and his marriage to the point that he almost lost both. He went to many pastors and churches, prayed and fasted but the devil’s padlock remained intact. His wife would catch him watching pornography on his iPad at night while they were in bed. She caught him a few times watching it but he would argue that he was watching something else.

One day, he had a dream in which he saw Prophet T.B. Joshua, whom he had never met before. He told him that all he needed to be delivered was to have faith. Two weeks later, his wife came across a video of Prophet T.B. Joshua on YouTube and asked him if he had ever heard of this pastor before. He said he had never seen him but recognized him from the dream he had a few weeks earlier.

Pastor George

He considered this to be a revelation from God, that his solution was at The SCOAN. He came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water. He would minister it every morning and night on himself, in the name of Jesus Christ. Then, one day, he realized that he no longer had the urge to watch pornography.

“I became a man again, a husband again; I was whole again”, he exclaimed joyfully to the glory of God. His wife also testified to his complete deliverance from this pornographic addiction, saying they now talk more and everything about their relationship has improved.

Chief Chima Choice Nwadike, a Nigerian living in South Africa was facing many challenges in his life. Among his many problems was the struggle to finish his house and he eventually gave up. His financial challenges were so serious that he could not even pay his children’s school fees. He had to borrow money from his parents for his children to go to university. His frustrations in life were made worse with the name-calling he was getting for failing to finish his house in the village for 25 years.

He decided to relocate to South Africa in search of a better life. In due course, he started watching Emmanuel TV at his friend’s shop. He was amazed at the messages and wonders God was performing through The SCOAN.  He could not help but install the cable for Emmanuel TV in his house. He eventually came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water. He went straight to his abandoned home and ministered it on the ruins before he flew back to his base in South Africa. Favour fell on him and his business started picking up.

With the booming business, he has been able to complete the house he could not for the past 25 years. The house is fully furnished and he no longer faces financial difficulties.

“I am not just a millionaire but a multimillionaire,” he beamed and showed pictures of the fully furnished house standing elegant, to the glory of God.


Mr and Mrs Chukwudi Edeh came from South Africa to give testimony of how God had blessed them with a baby after years of barrenness. Mrs Edeh was suffering from what is known as polycystic ovarian syndrome, ovarian cysts and endometriosis. This deprived the couple from having a baby. They visited many hospitals, looking for solution.

Mr & Mrs Chukwudi Edeh

Mr & Mrs Chukwudi Edeh

All doctors could do was diagnose the problem and give them different treatments which never led to pregnancy. They would attend baby showers of other couples of their age but the joy never manifested in their own domain! They were so devastated and humiliated. One day, they discovered Emmanuel TV on YouTube and concluded that the solution was in God’s hands at The SCOAN. They came and received the Anointing Water.

They went back to South Africa and began ministering and praying together on a daily basis. On one of Mrs Edeh’s routine check-ups at the doctor’s office, she did a pregnancy test and it came out positive. On Sunday, they came holding the baby boy in their hands whom they have christened, ‘Emmanuel’, in honour to God for the miracle baby He has blessed them with.

They advised, “Don’t just spray the Anointing Water but pray because it is the power of God in the Anointing Water that brings about the miracles.”

Model, actress and beauty salon owner, South African Tshidi Mphaki, had the problem of career failure and disappointment. She used to get many jobs as a model and actress but for seven years, things stopped working for her. She would go to many castings but would not be offered a job. Someone else would be cast for the role.

Tshidi Maphaki

She came to The SCOAN and was blessed with a bottle of the Anointing Water which she took home and began to minister in Jesus’ name. Soon, she received a call from one of her casting agents. Before she went for the interview, she prayed and anointed herself with the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name. The following day, she was offered the role. Not long after, she was given two more jobs. Now every other area of her life has taken a positive swing. Praise God!

Kostadinka Machaka from Switzerland received a prophecy from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua that she was having the spirit of suicide and that he saw her writing a suicide note. In confirmation of the prophecy, she said that she had had the spirit of suicide for the past 20 years and had turned her back on God thinking that He had abandoned her.

Elsie Johnson

Kostadinka Machaka

She also confirmed that the letter she was writing was to her mother telling her that she was going to commit suicide but something stopped her and she never finished the letter. After the prophecy given to her by Prophet T.B. Joshua, she was delivered by the power of the Holy Spirit and in the name of Jesus Christ. She no longer has the thoughts of suicide but complete peace of mind and is convinced beyond reasonable doubt that God loves her.   Hallelujah!


Viewers of Emmanuel TV and worshippers at The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria should be familiar with the controversial issue of the witch doctor who was prophesied to early last month concerning a deadly evil covenant with his wife young enough to be his daughter if not granddaughter.

Chief and Mrs Adeola Adeyemo indeed came to The SCOAN early last month. While seated, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, approached the 80 year-old man and told him, “You are a witch doctor”. Although he tried to refuse, he eventually confessed and it turned out that he was a ‘General’ of his trade in his own right.  It turned out that his marriage with his 35 year-old wife was full of controversy.

Not only that, it turned out that the former witch doctor had used his powers to evoke a covenant that would keep the two together in life and death; that after one had died, the other would follow immediately. The mindboggling confession shocked the congregation and viewers.

The man of God prophesied that the woman had three cowries inside her, which were part of the covenant and that the aged witch doctor had his own inside his body too which were invoked inside them through charms and not by physically swallowing them.

 Mr & Mrs Adeyemo

Mr & Mrs Adeyemo

Three weeks ago, during mass prayer ministered by Prophet T.B. Joshua, it all unfolded before the viewers’ own eyes as the woman vomited two cowries in a pool of blood. These, the man of God said, were the foretold charms Mr Adeyemo had evoked into his wife to chain her to him. He said the remaining one would still come out. Indeed, it did during the subsequent mass prayers to the astonishment of the viewers!

Last Sunday, the young woman came in alongside her aged husband to show the three cowries she had vomited and how light and happy she had been since then. She said the night following her deliverance, she had a dream of masquerades which, previously before her deliverance, had always tormented her in nightmares by making her sing and dance with them. But this time around, when she was about to start singing for and dancing with them, she saw herself shouting ‘Emmanuel!’ Immediately, a bright fire came and lifted her up out of the midst of the masquerades. The masquerades died there and then. Since then, she said that she no longer has those nightmares and has been sleeping soundly.

Mr Adeola Adeyemo told the congregation he was happy for his wife and prayed that the grace that had visited his wife would also visit him so that he could vomit out his own evil cowries. He did not have to wait long. No sooner than the man of God ministered mass prayer, the former witch doctor bent into two and vomited his three cowries. The couple is now delivered by the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus has set them free. When God sets one free, he is free indeed!

A spiritually electrifying Sunday Service that started 7:00am and lasted ‘til 10:30pm full of exciting and joyful spiritual activities, ended with another mass prayer where hidden demonic activities were fished out and a final blessing was imparted upon worshippers and viewers all over the world. Keep watching Emmanuel TV and stay blessed!

Last Sunday service at The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria was another manifestation of God’s holiness and supremacy – a mighty and glorious presence that subdues evil and brings serenity and peace. The day was replete with miracles and wonders as the power of the Holy Spirit moved among the people with force, and gracefully setting the enslaved free from all kinds of affliction. DADDYThe man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, walked among the people with Heavenly authority, preaching and teaching the Word with power. And in accordance with the measure of his faith – the Heavenly currency for healing, blessing and deliverance, he prayed for people and set them free in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. He taught about love, emphasizing its relevance to a Christian life. ‘Love’, said the man of God, ‘looks around to see those who are sick and in need’. His proof text was from Galatians 5:6.

In his words: “If one does not love, one’s faith will not work because faith works by love”, adding that “it means love is more important because it is the force that sets faith working. It is the greatest in the sense that it is only through love we can respond to God. Without love, I cannot hear from God; I will be without direction – without a father. Through love you can respond to others, ‘Be healed!’ and they are healed. Some of us have suppressed our faith by failing to walk in love. You have faith, no doubt about that, but you lack love,” he noted.

Shedding more light on neighborliness he said, “Your neighbor can be your enemy; those who do not share the same faith with you – love them all. We are known by our love. Jesus knows you not by your name, but your love.” The man of God then prophesied to the congregation before ministering prayer and deliverance at the Prayer Line.

EVANG. RIKHARDEarlier on, Evangelist Rikhard engaged the congregation and viewers with a message titled: A Christian Life. The message, whose proof text was from the book of Joshua 1:8 hinged on the need for a spiritual reconstruction of a Christian life to reflect God’s will. He explained that God has given everybody a plan for success but what matters, is following such a roadmap as given by God. He also emphasized the need for Christians to keep the Word of God in their mouth, meditate on it and do what the Word says.

“What you say can justify or condemn you; your words can free you or put you in trouble. Most of our troubles are tongue troubles. Jesus Christ warned against speaking idle words – words that do not edify or build others up, because for every idle word a man speaks, he shall be accountable,” he said.



Many people from various countries came forward to glorify God through testimonies of what He had done in their lives. We publish just a few of them. Be blessed as you read on.



When Mr Isdore Hetekere from Malawi suffered general body pains last year, he rushed to the hospital where doctors told him: “You are lucky to be alive!” A test by the doctors revealed that he had excess uric acid – a staggering 10.7 reading. According to the doctors, the normal range for uric acid is between 3.4 and 7. He was immediately prescribed to be taking three different types of medications daily. He considered such an arrangement unreliable and enslaving. He decided to seek higher power from the Healer, Jesus Christ. He came to The SCOAN where he received the Anointing Water. MR ISDORE HETEKERE[HEALED OF EXCESS URIC ACID(AW)]On his return home, he started ministering it in Jesus’ name and his energy started coming back, leading to a gradual healing. Over days, the pain disappeared and after a few months, he was very strong and fit. He went back to the hospital for another test. His uric acid level had dropped to 6.1, which is within the normal range. Now healed, healthy and strong, he sleeps well and no longer experiences pain.

That is not all. He and his wife had been looking for the fruit of the womb. After their first daughter, they had not had another child for nine years and had become desperate. His wife was suffering from irregular menstruation. They had gone to various hospitals for medical solutions but nothing seemed to be working. They ministered the Anointing Water and met as husband and wife. Behold, his wife conceived and they are now proud parents of a beautiful baby girl named, Divine.

He advised, “Sometimes, the healing is instant and sometimes gradual. We should be patient and wait upon the Lord.”



Dr Ozoh, a microbiologist residing in South Africa, came to testify how God rescued his home from armed robbery. In August last year, while at home, his son was strangely having difficulties sleeping. For some inexplicable reason, he just could not sleep. This continued till late in the night. Dr Ozoh decided to minister the Anointing Water on him and the house to cast out any demons and spirits of darkness that could have been lurking around. It wasn’t until 2am that they could sleep.DR. OZOH SAVED FROM ROBBERS THROUGH (AW)] In the morning, his wife was the first to wake only to discover to her utter shock that their kitchen had been broken into. Some items were missing. When she woke the whole house, they discovered that the missing items were dumped within the premises. What disappeared from one room was found in another. When police came, they could not believe what had happened; that robbers could labour to break into a highly secured home and yet steal nothing from it, not even a needle! All expensive electrical and hi-fi equipment was intact. Dr Ozoh thanked God for His faithfulness and advised viewers to live each day as if it was their last.



When Jesus sets you free, you are set free indeed and Mr Chris Paul Abure, a professional model from Nigeria living in Ghana, is evidence of this. Standing before the congregation on Sunday, he explained how he was thrown into the devil’s dungeon, living a life of sin – until he came to The SCOAN where Jesus Christ broke the chains and set him free. Narrating his episode of demonic horror, Mr Abure traced his tragedy to 16 years ago when his father cursed him for not following his lifestyle. His father belonged to this secret society which, he said, all the children in the family detested. The father told him he would not prosper in life. As he grew up, he could feel that things were not working for him. He found himself smoking weed, drinking alcohol and sleeping with every woman who crossed his path.

“Every bad thing, you name them, I have done,” he said.

MR CHRIS PAUL ABURE [PROFESSIONAL MODEL DELIVERED]One day, as Mr Abure was smoking at the beach, a strange thing happened. A beautiful lady appeared from nowhere, tapped him by the shoulder and said: “Handsome guy, how are you?” As soon as he replied, they started kissing although the lady was a total stranger to him. She then asked him to walk with her along the beach which was a distance away. He declined preferring to remain sitting where he was. Suddenly, he just discovered that the beach had come to him, touching his feet. The girl told him this was where he belonged, in the water and that one day she would take him there. He was horrified and told her to leave him. This encounter inflamed his lust for women and drugs as the same strange female-being appeared to him again in Ghana. In each instance, she would give him a telephone number and a physical address close to where he stayed. The number would be unreachable and no one would remember ever seeing such a girl if he went to look for her at the address.

He slept with many women – sometimes three women in a day. In due course, he had contracted sexually transmitted infections. He said he had been to all West African countries where he engaged in every abominable thing conceivable. That was not all. He had fought many people including police for no reason and earned himself incarceration behind bars six times in foreign prisons, particularly in Mali and Guinea. He was losing many friends for his unpredictable violent behaviour. He said the evil spirit tormented him so much in his modeling career that it started to crumble before his own eyes and there was nothing he could do about it. After failing to get solution from witch-doctors and various churches, he decided to come to The SCOAN.  First, his brother brought him the Anointing Water. Although he was not a strong believer, he decided to minister it. Soon afterwards, he noted a change in his life. He no longer felt like smoking and his lust for women eased.

One night, he saw Prophet T.B. Joshua in a dream, delivering him. He decided to come to The SCOAN in Lagos, where the power of the Holy Spirit located him as Wise Man Daniel ministered prayer and deliverance, in Jesus’ name. The evil spirit was confronted by the mighty power of the Holy Spirit and was instantly arrested but not before it confessed its atrocities such as causing him to lust after women, smoke and fight. The demon was cast out, in the name of Jesus Christ. And since that deliverance, Paul said he had become a changed person.

“I used to think evil – bad things. I thought I was having fun. That is not the way anymore. Anger is gone, even if you slap me now, I will just laugh and say thank you,” he said as he gave thanks to God for his freedom.



Pastor and Mrs Joseph Abumere had the problem of barrenness for six years. Doctors cited pelvic inflammatory disease as the cause. Every time she conceived, the pregnancy would go. Not having children brought shame to the family. Her husband, being a pastor, had dedicated many children to God and yet, they could not have their own. For six years, they faced a lot of name-calling and rejection. Every time she saw her menstruation, she would be crying, asking God why she could not conceive. They prayed and fasted but still, nothing. They started watching Emmanuel TV and saw how the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, was being used by God to break yokes. PASTOR & MRS JOSEPH ABUMERE [BARRENNESS TO FRUITFULNESS(AW).]They agreed to come to The SCOAN, where they received the Anointing Water and prayed that God would do it for them. After ministering it, in Jesus’ name, they met as husband and wife and to the glory of God, the yoke was broken. She went back to the hospital for another medical test. Its result confirmed that she no longer suffered from pelvic inflammatory disease. In no time, she conceived and now they have a bouncing baby girl.  God Almighty wiped away Mrs Abumere’s tears of barrenness through the medium of the Anointing Water and brought honour to the pastor’s home!



Miss Christiana Legon was having pain in her side and lower back but real horror struck her when she went for a scan and the doctors discovered an enlarged liver and hepatitis. The moment the doctors mentioned the disease, she remembered many members of her family who had succumbed to the same problem. Her brother had once been asked to go for a transplant only to die later. The thought of being the next, was unbearable. The doctors told her that she needed to come back for another test. Before she could go back, her legs started to swell. She tuned-in to Emmanuel TV and prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. As she prayed, she said, she felt like a burden had been lifted off her. MISS CHRISTIANA LEGON [FREE FROM FAMILY CURSE ETVThe pain also left her. She went back to the hospital and went for another test and, to the glory of God and disbelief of doctors, Hepatitis A and Hepatitis C could no longer be found in her system! The power of God through the medium of the Anointing Water had wiped them out. She went for several tests and all proved she was healed of an enlarged liver and hepatitis. Praise God!



It was all but a battle of futility for the demon that had tormented Pastor and Mrs Roland Tabe from Cameroon for over a decade. It had no chance against the power of the Holy Spirit. The couple, both ministers of God, came to The SCOAN with the problem of setback and depression in their family and ministry. Pastor Roalnd Tabe had the spirit of anger that often sent him into tantrums. As a result, there was no love in the family. This also affected his ministry which stopped growing and faced collapse. He had been a pastor for more than ten years and he would hear a voice tell him to give up and quit being pastor. His church would have programs and gain in membership, but the people would suddenly leave. He would pray for people and they would be healed but they would go and give testimony elsewhere. Members were leaving the church in large numbers.

One night, in her dream, the wife saw the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, ministering in their church and delivering people. She considered this a revelation and decided with her husband to come to The SCOAN. It was while praying in the Arena of Liberty, that the evil spirit spoke out and confessed being responsible for the agony the two had been going through. APOSTLE & PROPHETESS ROLAND TABE FROM CAMEROON DELIVERED.

While they were seated among the congregation at The SCOAN, one of the wise men came and prayed for him, in the name of Jesus Christ.  He felt a hot sensation run through his body. The evil spirit confessed that it had killed many members of his family and destroyed their ministries. Testifying in the church, he said that while he was young, he once stayed with his aunt who was a prostitute. During that time, she took him to a shrine where they performed a ritual on him by making incisions in his body and that his blood was taken and used for the ritual in the shrine.

“I am now a new person. The urge to leave my ministry is gone. I also have affection for my wife,” he said. He then advised other ministers of God that pride goes before a fall and that they should all be humble and ready to receive their deliverance.

The service closed with Mass Prayer ministered by the wise men. Stay blessed and always remember, love looks around!

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 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:


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.



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.


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.

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.


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.

The service ended with the mass prayer during which the power of the Holy Ghost, working through the wise men, demolished all sorts of evil spiritual entities causing crisis and tension in the life of mankind. Stay blessed and keep watching Emmanuel TV!
