As the congregation sang and praised the name of the Almighty God, Prophet T.B. Joshua came to the altar and addressed the congregation:



“Good morning church and viewers all over the world. I want to thank you for your prayer and your love for the victims and relations of all those involved in the incident.

“The battle is for the Lord. I really want to thank God. God has been doing so much. We need to know a thousand victories, all the way long. Glory and honour to God Almighty.

“For those who are outside the Lord, they would not know. When you are outside God, you will not know what I am talking about. When you are outside the light, you can’t understand what I am talking about.

“For the three weeks before the incident, if you heard my message and sat down, you would know I was giving you a vision and prophetic Word on how to handle the situation at hand. Trials and tests are meant for our belief. I go by the directives of God.



He continued, “I salute the martyrs of faith and the victims. I also salute their relations. My love and my prayers are always with them. The martyrs, victims and their relations, what they would like to see is the work of God continue. That is what they died for, suffered for and are living for.

“From your heart, commit the relations of the martyrs to God. Ask God to strengthen them and open their understanding more to know and understand what happened here. Ask God to give them the grace to continue in God. In Him we live; in Him we move. Ask God to give them the grace to continue the work of salvation.

“Remember the victims in one way or the other and ask for God’s intervention. Ask God for His power of resurrection within them and outside them, in Jesus Christ’s name we pray.


“Remain silent and give thanks to God, within you. I want you to change your confession and give thanks to God.

“Speaking on the need to exercise faith, the man of God enjoined all to listen to God, not men. He said further, “Don’t let your faith be disturbed. If anyone wants to disturb your faith with their negative words and message, remember God. See the need of God the more. See the need of serving the Lord the more, the need of moving closer to Him.

“Don’t be disturbed. Pray for the relations; pray for the victims. That is your assignment – your love and prayer for the victims and the relations of the martyrs. That is your duty at this time.

“Don’t allow yourself to be used by satan. If you do, satan will use his people to run to you and disturb you the more. This is an opportunity for them to disturb your faith with their negative words. Those who hate you and those who want you to die will run after you because of this issue. It is not that they love you but they want to see your countenance, your appearance, how you look and whether you are worried. Never allow this. Remember Jesus. Don’t change your words in a moment. Jesus is Lord.

“What you saw happen – God is aware. If God is aware, who else is aware does not matter. The martyrs, victims and relations want to see your faith grow; they want to see the work of salvation and the work of God in your life continue. They want to see you serve the Lord the more. The only way you can allow the work of God to continue is to be with yourself and God, not to allow intruders and people around you to advise you and tell you what to do when they could not stop what happened.

“I pray the satanic agents should be the only ones to suffer this. I said, our God will get back to them. Warn your family and brothers about their talk. You will know I am a man of God this time. People who are looking for your downfall and run to disturb your spirit, warn them to be careful of their tongues and the people who come to them. God is a God of vengeance – anybody can go for it.

“You cannot help me, only God. Don’t disturb me; please leave me with God. You will see the outcome. I am saying this so that only the people who did this will suffer for it and you will not in any way suffer for it. The people who are writing whatever they are saying – all of us will see the outcome of this. Leave it for God.

“I have been on this journey for 27 years. Do you think God can close His eyes and rubbish everything here? They are asking God to bring more evidence of whether He is the One who called me. Warn everyone to be very careful. This issue at hand is a delicate issue.

“People are using all this to gain money and friends. This is a warning. Whatever anybody wants to write, let them write it; they will be the ones to read it.

“I said, our God will get back to them. He has started somewhere. He is coming. If your brother is involved, unless he can resurrect the people who died, he will join them. If you can resurrect the people who died, you can go free. The servants, the people who sent them, the people who heard the stories all around and those who want to use it for themselves and disturb my spirit, you may likely join them. Be careful. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. Let us be very careful of our tongue.

“Your responsibility is to the victims and the relations of the victims and martyrs of faith. If you say you are born again, wherever the victims and their relations are, wherever the relations of the martyrs of faith are, look for them. Let them know you are praying for them. What you eat, let them eat it. What you wear, let them wear out of it. What you have on your table, let them have it on their table, too. Share what you have with them – your love, prayer, affection and strength. Share it with them at this time. This is what we call ‘born again’ – my pain is your pain. Your joy is my joy.

“The trillion people who claim to be with T.B. Joshua in prayer – if the same trillion people turn to the families of the victims and martyrs of faith, do you not think life would be better for them than before? Join them, look for them, as many others are doing now.”

The message was followed by powerful words of prophecy as Prophet T.B. Joshua, led by the Spirit of God, moved amidst the congregation, giving words of knowledge and prophecy to people proving that we are truly under God’s eyes. With the root cause of their problems exposed, the people breathed a sigh of relief knowing that God had indeed taken over their problems and solution is just a moment away.

Earlier on, Wise Man Harry encouraged the congregation and viewers of Emmanuel TV worldwide with a message about the life of Joseph and his journey to the throne.  He said, “Many of us today are without faith and hope because everything seems to go contrary to our expectations. For instance, when we expect breakthrough in our businesses, we receive setback. In place of good health, we begin to experience sickness.”



He added, “There comes a time in our lives where we feel as if the world around us is coming to an end. It is in critical situations like this that we know who is a man of faith. Just because you are a Christian does not mean that satan cannot attack you because anything close to Jesus receives attack.” In summary, Joseph’s journey started from his father’s house to the dry pit; from the dry pit to slavery; from slavery to the prison and from the prison to the throne. At last, he found himself in the position of influence and he was able to re-unite with his family. His life’s experience teaches us two things:

  1. No matter how long a lie is sustained truth will someday prevail.
  2. The position of influence must begin with suffering. It began with a wound – being sold into slavery – and he became a pearl of usefulness.

“What is your dry pit right now?” asked Wise Man Harry.  Your own dry pit may come in form of sickness, poverty, disappointment. Joseph did not stay in the dry pit; he moved on! This means, your dry pit, slavery and your prison condition is not your destination! Your destination is the throne!

“God never promised to keep us away from trials but He promised to see us through. Through your crises, God is what you need Him to be. He’s ready to go through the dry pit, slavery, prison, fire, the valley of the shadow of death with you”. He concluded by saying that as a man of vision, patience, perseverance and endurance are your tools. Use them continuously!



A touching turn to the service came when 77 year-old Ruth Kafunda from Zambia cried out at the prayer line for deliverance from a 10 year addiction to eating anthill soil.
Speaking in her local dialect, she explained further that three of her children were mentally disturbed and because of that, she had been accused of being a witch.
According to the elderly lady, since 2009, she had been saving money to come to The SCOAN After the recent incident, when others didn’t want to follow her to The SCOAN, she insisted on coming and came alone with the faith that Jesus would deliver her through Prophet T.B. Joshua.



Of all graces, faith honours Christ the most. Of all graces, Christ honours faith the most. After prayer from Prophet T.B. Joshua at the prayer line, she was delivered from the evil spirit that had caused her to be addicted to eating ant hill soil. Spitting out the soil after the deliverance, she declared that it no longer tasted sweet. With the belief and faith that her whole family had been delivered, Mrs Ruth joyfully thanked God for her encounter with Jesus Christ at The SCOAN prayer line.



Prophet T.B. Joshua Last Sunday’s service came and passed but the declaration by the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, to take the Gospel to South Africa’s doorstep will remain engraved in the minds of many people and remembered as the day when God let the gates of His anointing freely flow to the ‘unreachable places’ of Southern Africa. Addressing the congregation, slightly over a week after the September 12 incident, the man of God announced the need to commemorate the ‘martyrs of faith’ who passed on as a result of the incident.  Making the announcement to the thousands that gathered at The SCOAN and viewers worldwide, he said: “Those who are affected in one way or another and those who passed on to glory, their greatest desire is to see that the work of salvation they died and suffered for continues and for it to reach unreachable places. For that, what they are coming here for should be taken to meet them in their country. Once in a month, I will be travelling to South Africa to meet people from South Africa and other nations who find South Africa easier to visit, in memory of the martyrs of faith.”  The announcement was greeted with a din of applause from the 20,000 plus worshippers who gathered in the church auditorium and spilled to the canopies. Explaining the new development, the man of God said: “I cannot afford to offend the saints if I want to be a saint. I cannot afford to offend the martyrs if I want to be one. This kind of faith expressed by South Africans deserves this kind of blessing from God. It is a price I must pay. Satan is a liar.”  Prophet T.B. Joshua, however, said his ministration in South Africa would not be on Sundays so that people would have the opportunity to attend their respective churches.  He added: “The martyrs of faith had their various churches which they attended but came here for healing, deliverance and to increase their faith.”

A video was then shown of the first South African to visit The SCOAN. In the video, recorded in 1999 when the man – a pastor, set foot at The SCOAN, he said the Lord spoke to him to go around the world and look for an anointed man of God and receive from him. He went everywhere around the world and did not see a place where God was moving like The SCOAN. He prophetically emphasised that the grace God had given to the ministry should be allowed to go all around the world or great persecution would come that would force the ministry to go out into the world.

Commenting on the video and recent developments, Prophet T.B. Joshua said: “We have a role to play to protect the work of God; to protect God’s manifestation. It is like the church building here, God will not come and clean the church and the chairs. This is our role. We built this church. At this hour, you will know that what is happening here is from God. When the finger of God is passing through the shadow of death, you will know it is the finger of God. The manifestation of God is becoming too big and it needs to be cared for.”The man of God then proceeded to the prayer line where God manifested His power through healings and deliverances performed in the name of Jesus Christ.

Wise Man Racine Earlier, Wise Man Racine delivered to the congregation a faith-building and encouraging message titled: ‘Heavenward with Christ Jesus’ – a call for Christians to value salvation over other things. Quoting various scriptures, he said problems would always come but this should not divert people’s focus and belief in Christ Jesus, Who is the Way.  He said, “To get to Heaven, you must follow the way of the Cross. Jesus said that in this world we shall face problems but we should not be troubled because He has overcome. He promised to strengthen our spirit with His Spirit. To a true believer, death is his release from the imprisonment of this world and his departure to the enjoyment of another world. If you put your faith in Christ Jesus, death is not a period, it is only a comma. You need not fear where you are going when you know Jesus is going with you.”

The service closed with the ministration of The New Anointing Water and many more souls were set free from bondage of
disease, sickness and various afflictions.



Last Sunday service nothing could obstruct God’s anointing that filled The SCOAN and brought healing and deliverance to the sick and the afflicted. From the soulful songs of worship to the day’s message of hope, God’s outpouring of grace was prevalent for all who put a demand on the anointing.

DADDY1 The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, addressed the congregation on emerging issues before he moved on to the prayer line where he ministered to visitors who had come from all over the world in search of a touch from Jesus Christ through the man of God. Scores of people received deliverance and healing and were declared free, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

Earlier, Wise Man Daniel preached a powerful message titled, ‘Do Not Mind The Devil’, saying, “As a child of God, whatever your situation is, there is a hidden agenda, plan, entity or principality satan is using to undo you or harm you. Fight the devil ‘til the last minute. Don’t give up! Take the strength you need from Christ Jesus. There is not enough physical strength to defeat satan. There is not enough mental strength to defeat satan; satan can only be defeated in the spirit by the power in the blood of Jesus Christ. Never doubt God’s desire or ability to help you. Be patient! Let God answer your question on His schedule, not yours. God’s time is the best. At God’s time everything is beautiful.”


He urged Christians not to be troubled by satan or frustrated by his tactics. Instead, he said, it was their duty and right to challenge him boldly in Jesus’ name because they have the power of the name Jesus Christ at their command.

Selecting his proof text from Ephesians 6:11-13, he said Christians must walk in the spirit in Christ Jesus always, if they are to claim victory over the devil.

“Remember, the right to pray and receive an answer is given to every believer. Therefore, a real Christian is someone who possesses what it takes to overcome and cast out satan – not only out of his own life but also out of the lives of others,” he said, adding, “It is clear that we are not combating flesh and blood but the principalities and powers of darkness in the Heavenly places. That is, we are fighting against demons of all ranks, of all kinds and of all authorities. Remember, satan is our common enemy; He is the one attacking mankind everywhere. To combat satan and emerge victorious is not a matter of combining your own strength with that of Jesus Christ. Rather, it is a matter of total and complete removal of your own strength in order to put on the strength of Christ Jesus.”

Shedding more light on the characteristics required to emerge victorious over satan, he said Christians must begin to believe in God, stand upon His Word and build themselves up spiritually “because our enemy is a person but a person without body.”

He explained: “You cannot build one up spiritually on philosophies or on theories about the Word, or on the history about the Word. We are made spiritual by living in the Word and the Word living in us. This means that, it is not only committing the Word to memory which is valuable, but also letting the Word become an integral part of our being by meditation. Remember, meditation in God’s Word is a visit with Him.”

“Satan knows that he cannot stop those who have spiritual insight into Christ’s life. God gives everyone plenty evidence to believe in Him. There is nothing more ridiculous than to allow your present situation to cause you to doubt the fulfilment of God’s Word or promises for your life.”

The service closed with the ministration of the New Anointing Water by evangelists and many more souls were liberated to freedom from sickness and affliction, in Jesus’ name!

“Emmanuel – God is with us.

“The pain of one is the pain of all. It is indeed a sad and painful moment for the families and friends who have lost loved ones. It is equally so for us in The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (The SCOAN), under the leadership of Prophet T.B. Joshua.

On Friday, September 12, 2014, at about 12:44pm, one of the buildings on The SCOAN property unexpectedly collapsed, tragically resulting in death and injury. Nigerians, South Africans and citizens of other nations were affected. This incident was preceded by the appearance of a strange aircraft which flew very low over the building four times and then disappeared.

“Since the day of this incident, The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, its members and partners, have worked in collaboration with the Nigerian, South African and other nations’ authorities to ensure that survivors are rescued, attended to with the best medical treatment, cared for in the most humane and hospitable manner and reunited with their families, while those who passed on – martyrs of the Kingdom of God – are retrieved, identified and treated respectfully.

Amongst those we are working hand-in-hand with, are: The Federal Government of Nigeria, the Government of the Republic of South Africa, Lagos State Government, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), the Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA), the Lagos State Ministry of Health – doctors and nurses, the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON), the Red Cross, the Nigeria Police Force and various Non-governmental and humanitarian organisations and construction and engineering corporations.

“It is very sad that inaccurate reports are coming from some quarters that we are not cooperating with the rescue teams and other agencies in collating information and providing assistance on the incident. Contrary to this, we want to categorically state that the church has provided assistance when and where required and continues to do so – good Christians are good citizens.

“We emphasise our commitment to cooperate with all relevant authorities in establishing the cause of the collapse of the building.
The church views this tragedy as part of an attack on The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations and in particular, Prophet T.B. Joshua. In due course, God will reveal the perpetrators of this unfortunate tragedy.

“We wish to express our gratitude to all who continue to work tirelessly, show their solidarity and share their condolences in this grievous time, particularly all Government and non-Governmental bodies mentioned above, Diplomatic Missions, National and International media houses, society groups, traditional rulers, all concerned citizens and the residents of our local community, Ikotun-Egbe. We equally appreciate all members and partners of The SCOAN and Emmanuel TV, along with Christians and clergy worldwide for their prayers and support.

“To all those who lost family members and loved ones, please accept our heart-felt commiserations. No one knows by the present sign or situation what the future holds. We must therefore live each day as if it were our last and leave tomorrow’s trouble for the One who bore our troubles on the cross. We thank God for the martyrs and we pray for the family members and loved ones left behind.”

The overcoming presence of God’s glory and the power of the Holy Ghost were unmistakably prevalent on Sunday as, in His infinite mercy, He filled The SCOAN with the anointing that brought healing and deliverance to the sick and afflicted, shattering chains and setting the captives free. The instant the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, spoke the word of authority and commanded satan’s grip to loose, Heavens’ response was spontaneous as people caught the fire, fell under the anointing and vomited poisonous substances to signify the expulsion of darkness for light. Those who worshipped through Emmanuel TV and other various mediums, were as equally convicted by the living and piercing Word of God as those that were physically present at the Arena of Liberty as satan lost his hold on their lives and bowed out.




Mounting the pulpit, the man of God meticulously dwelled on the important issue of faith, outlining deep things that are a hindrance to prayer. Flipping to the book of Hebrews 4:3, he pinpointed freedom of the spirit as one such barrier, noting that when one’s spirit is free it becomes sensitive to the Spirit of God unlike when it is in a state of dullness, worry and anxiety.


He explained, “Even when you are in the presence of God, you are worried. It is due to the activity of the devil’s nature. Keep your heart from cares, worry, anxiety or concern because Christianity lies in the heart. When you pray over some matter and yet afterwards, you find yourself still worrying over it, still full of anxious concern, just as if you have never prayed at all, it is because your spirit is not free. When your spirit is not free, it can never be sensitive to the Spirit of God. It can never feel the Spirit of God. It can never be attracted to the Spirit of God.”


Delivering an insight to powerful and effective prayer, Prophet T.B. Joshua said prayer for any matter should be followed by an attitude of absolute trust in God that He is now working out the answer. 


“You believe God will do it for you and He has been doing it for you. Why are you troubled, anxious and worried, then? Is it because you are afraid that He will not do it well? Christian faith demands that we truly rest in which the heart is free from worry, anxiety, depression, pressure and burdens, free from labour – that is Christian faith. For your heart to be free from worry, for your body to be free from labour, you must have faith in the finished work of our Lord, Jesus Christ, not faith in yourself. Faith is a gift from God”, he said before proceeding to minister prophecy to individuals and the world.




Earlier, Wise Man Christopher dispatched an encouraging message titled: No Competition In Destiny, saying, “The beauty in creation is that human beings long for eternity, yet they cannot understand what God has done from the beginning to the end. God allows everything to take place at their appointed time and season. We may not understand it, but it is this that constitutes the beauty in creation.”


Where God’s anointing flows, testimonies are endless. Scores of people lined up to give their testimonies of what God has accomplished in their lives. We give you a selected few of the testimonies:



Anthony Ochieng from Kenya and his mother, Mary Ochieng, came to share an astounding testimony of deliverance from bedwetting since birth.


The mother narrated the horrible situation the family had found themselves in as a result of her son’s affliction. They thought that it would be a temporary problem that would fade with age but instead of the bedwetting to reduce, it became worse. “He gave up on life at an early age”, she explained, adding that he would wet himself anywhere he was, including at school or in the car. He would force himself to stay awake at night and wait in an attempt to avoid waking up soaked but each night ended in disappointment.




Because of the bullying he was receiving at school, his parents moved him to another school with fewer students but that didn’t help either. The teasing continued and, as a result, Anthony became bitter, violent and rude, fighting every day. Mrs Ochieng would always be called to come and get her son as the teachers could not handle him. He was sent out from school and Mary found another one for him. In the third school, he got so bad that he started fighting the teachers. It was a sad day indeed when the headteacher called her to the office declaring that she should withdraw Anthony from the school and that they didn’t want her money. They also refused to issue a letter to enable them to apply for another school for Anthony.


One day, Anthony called his brother and told him that if his bedwetting did not stop, he was going to jump off the roof and end his life. His father and mother decided to give themselves to prayer. A short time later, a friend called her from the USA and asked if she knew T.B. Joshua. She had not but began to search on the internet and watch videos of the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua. She later installed Emmanuel TV in the house. One day, she was watching and a lady was giving testimony concerning deliverance from bedwetting. She instantly called Anthony to come and watch and told him by faith, “Ours must be over today!” Anthony on his own responded by getting a pen and paper and writing a letter: “Dear Jesus, God of T.B. Joshua, please help me to stop bedwetting and be a good boy”. He then placed the letter on the screen of Emmanuel TV and held it there until the man of God had finished praying. A few minutes later, he felt tired and went to bed. The next morning, to his mother’s shock and surprise, he came out and told her that the bed was not wet.


A curse of 15 years had been broken in a moment. Within a few months, Anthony returned to school and is now doing well. The affliction of bedwetting is only a memory and the rage and bitterness have completely disappeared.


Immaculately dressed, Anthony advised all viewers that they can receive their freedom just by watching Emmanuel TV and having faith in the name of Jesus.



Successfully running a thriving spare parts business in Cameroon, Chief Kenneth Chukwuma was an undisputable guru in his trade for over 26 years when one day the devil hit.  A raging fire burnt down the shop and consumed everything he had laboured for, reducing to ashes property worth a whopping 350million naira. Shocked and himself equally gutted, he toyed with the idea of committing suicide as life no longer mattered to him.



On advice from his friend, he came to The SCOAN to seek the face of God. It was to mark the rebirth of his fortunes. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, blessed him with the Anointing Water and advised him to minister it, in Jesus’ name, in the same shop that was now in rubbles. He prayed and asked God to restore him. Not long after, people who owed him money, started to pay back and he soon relaunched his business. To God be the glory, he now boasts of more than what the fire had destroyed. He also managed to build a magnificent residence in Cameroon where he has also now been appointed President of Nigerians living in Northern Cameroon. He can once again call himself a successful man.


He advised: “Trust God because he is the ultimate.”





Mr Innocent who lives and studied in Ukraine, came to share what God has done in his life. He came to The SCOAN in 2002 due to the career setback he had been facing. He had previously won an award for his educational ability but despite this, he could not move forward in his education. He went to three different educational institutions but did not gain admission to the courses he chose. He became confused and didn’t know what to do. After his visit to The SCOAN, he had a dream in which he saw Prophet T.B. Joshua talking to him and discussing many things. When he woke up, he remembered ‘Engineering’. So he started to look for a course in Engineering. He found a course in Ukraine and applied for the national university.  He was accepted and God made a way for him to travel and start the course in Ukraine. As he started, his grades would range from a couple of A’s and B’s then all else would be C’s; for him to pass that would not do. He started watching Emmanuel TV through the internet and praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. His grades began to improve and throughout his third year he got straight A’s. He was awarded with a certificate for best student of the year and got a GPA of 5 out of 5. Needless to say, he achieved a first class certificate in telecommunications engineering. An educational turnaround indeed!



Miss Kehinde Afolabi traced her pitiable life story to when she was only two years old. She had been sexually abused and unbeknown to her, an evil spirit of lust that would torment her for many years, had entered her. At age 15, she discovered she had a chronic lust for men and every man she wanted, she got. In a day, she would sleep with up to seven men purely for satisfaction. She had no control over herself, sleeping in guest houses with all sorts of men older than her. Later, she decided to travel to South Africa, hoping to eke out a new life. It only got worse. Sad to say, every man she slept with would eventually abuse and kick her out of his house. Inevitably she was introduced to prostitution which entailed the same lifestyle she had been living but included cash this time. The word love never existed in her life and she went to do abortions a number of times.




Last month, she encountered a man on the internet whom she befriended and agreed to marry. Lured to the idea of finally settling down, she returned to Nigeria where a nightmare was sadly waiting for her. The man was not who he said he was but a fraudster who simply abused her, snatched all the money she had raised while prostituting in South Africa and kicked her out. Stranded, she went back to prostitution.


Last week, she resolved to go back to her old life in South Africa when at the airport, she met a multitude of people from South Africa coming to The SCOAN. She was astounded because she had always regarded the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, in negative light. As God would have it, the moment she landed in South Africa, she was deported. Her next destination, as it were, was to be the same place she had stayed away from due to false rumours. In search of divine help and left with no options, she swallowed her pride and came to The SCOAN. During the ministration of the New Anointing Water, the evil spirit inside of her was exposed and forced to confess all the atrocities it had caused her. Delivered and declared free in the name of Jesus Christ, she came to express how her life had finally changed and how she no longer lusts for men. All she wanted now, she said, was to take care of her six year-old twins she, by the grace of God, had not been able to abort. She advised parents to properly take care of their children and make sure they are indeed in school. “Many children are prostituting and not in school as they make you believe,” she warned.




Strange addictions and experiences tormented the life of Kenyan national, Joseph Muthee Mukindia. All seemed well and sweet before marriage but after the ceremony, each time he looked at his wife, he was disgusted. He no longer saw her as beautiful and gave every excuse in the world not to meet with her. He heard a voice telling him to remove his wedding ring and as soon as he did, this signaled the death of all affection between them.




Soon, they were sleeping in separate rooms and Mr Mukindia kept praying that one day his wife would be tired and leave the matrimonial home. Whenever friends or colleagues asked if he was married, he would be angry. In social gatherings, he would move with single people. Something within him felt that it was right for him to be a single man. All the while, his wife was silently praying and fasting, believing that their situation could turn around. In six years of marriage, they had not met as husband and wife. Nobody knew this. Those who knew them were just asking where the fruit of the marriage was.


While discussing the issue, he prompted his wife that it would be better for both if she would just leave. But she insisted, saying that even if he could not perform, that should not be a reason for her to abandon him. He became frustrated with her stubbornness to stay! While all this was going on, the same evil spirit that wanted separation was evoking a strange addiction within Mr Mukindia. He developed a craving to eat his fingers. After eating his dirty nails, he would proceed to sink his teeth into each of his fingers, one by one. Once he had brought blood from a finger and felt satisfied by the taste, he would move to the next finger and bring out blood from it. This became a daily habit. As if that was not enough, he kept on getting sick with various bacterial stomach infections plaguing him every moment. He became lean and weak.


Apart from that, his wife had become tired. She sent him a text, telling him that she had prayed and fasted but was now ready to give up, declaring her intention to leave the marriage. A friend then encouraged him to watch Emmanuel TV and helped him install it in his home. As he began to watch, the heaviness within him was lifted and his hope became alive. He prayed with the man of God while touching the screen and that horrible addiction was gone in a moment. Incredibly grateful to God, he decided to visit The SCOAN in December 2013, believing for further deliverance and breakthrough. Just as he had believed, while at The SCOAN, he received what he had prayed for. Prophet T.B. Joshua while at the Prayer Line gave him a word of prophecy, telling him that there was crisis in his home and that his wife had threatened to leave him. He confirmed the prophecy and received his deliverance instantly. As he returned home, he called his wife who excitedly responded that she had watched the prophecy, over 5000km away in Kenya. The love returned between them and the affection was completely restored. The voice of confusion was gone and in its place a voice of peace came and told him to look for his wedding ring and put it back on. He did this and within a very short time, his wife informed him that she was pregnant. Not only that, he started having awesome breakthrough in his business after the prophecy and deliverance.


His advice was to all married couples: “You are because I am and I am because you are. Where you are weak, I am strong and where I am weak, you are strong. Divorce is not the solution. Deliverance is the answer!”



Last week, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied that there was someone in the congregation whom a friend had deceived to do a money ritual. A young man, John Otoera confirmed the prophecy. He confessed that a friend had told him that he knew someone very powerful who could help them to get rich. Intrigued, he decided to follow his friend to meet the powerful man. When they got there, the man asked him if ‘he was ready’ to which John replied, “Yes”, not knowing what this really meant. He was told he needed to pay something. They returned later to the place and the man became more specific, telling him that he needed to give his mum. He had prepared a cloth which John was supposed to place on his mum’s bed and call her name three times after she had slept on the bed and that would be the end of her. John left without the cloth, his conscience disturbing him as he could not imagine sacrificing his dear mother.




Life after that became a living nightmare. He started having horrible dreams of threats and attacks. His friend kept calling him asking what was wrong with him and he could not concentrate on anything. After the Spirit of God located him at The SCOAN and he confessed, John felt peace and calmness. Now, he can sleep peacefully and his friend no longer calls him. He thanked God for His mercy and favour upon his life. Prince Daniel Aiewekhoe, John’s employer was equally in the church when the prophecy was given. He joined John to thank God, testifying that John is evidently a changed man since the prophecy and deliverance.



Bestiality can be as pervasive as it is beastly and Mr Bitrus learned it the hard way. It all started way back when he was a very young boy. When everyone in his household had gone to the market on a market day, he would be the one to stay and take care of the home. One such day, home alone, he saw a duck fowl and an evil thought crossed his mind to make love with it. Since that time, nothing attracted him more than animals. The urge was so severe that it ruined his life; it gave him the spirit of lust and was jumping from one woman to another. So chronic was the urge that a point came when he considered marriage as a solution. It was never to be and he ended up leaving one marriage after another until he married his current third wife. After some time, he told her to leave and proposed to marry a fourth wife.




He eventually decided to come to the Arena of Liberty. By God’s infinite mercy, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied about a man in the congregation who satisfied himself by sleeping with animals. Shocked that his long-kept secret had been exposed, he walked to the altar to confirm the prophecy. The man of God further prophesied that Mr Bitrus also had a son suffering from the same affliction. The prophecy was welcomed by cries of desperation from his wife who confirmed everything the man of God had said to be true. Both he and his wife received their deliverance. His son was also called from the village where he had been living and received his freedom from the appalling evil spirit.


The service closed with the ministration of the New Anointing Water for all who were present both inside the church and outside in the overflow canopies during which many more souls were saved!

From divine revelations uttered through prophecy, to a chain-shattering mass prayer that broke the yokes and set free those that were in bondage, last Sunday service at The SCOAN was one to remember. Windows of Heaven were opened; and what followed was an outpouring of God’s anointing that filled the auditorium. As the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua



commanded out contrary spirits and proclaimed healing and deliverance, in Jesus’ name, the power of the Holy Spirit swept through the church, setting people free from various afflictions. The man of God also took the congregation on ‘a visit to Abraham’ when he preached with power on the need to place one’s faith in God alone.



Picking Genesis 22:8 as proof text, the man of God said Christians should emulate Abraham who, when asked by his son where the lamb for the burnt offering was, said, “God himself will provide.”
He explained, “When you are facing challenges, you say, God Himself will save me. When you lack finances, you say God Himself will provide. Abraham’s faith was not on Isaac but on God. If our faith is on the Giver (God), even when what is given is taken away, we will still have hope. When what is given is taken away, that is the more reason we should believe in God, have faith in God the more. Abraham was asked to sacrifice the only son. Assume he had faith on his only son, he would not have courage to obey God’s instruction. Satan wants you to curse God. Satan wants you to live outside the truth where your light is coming from, while you are in pain, while under temptation or affliction.”
Speaking on the vanity of placing faith on one’s possessions, he said: “If your faith or belief is on your possessions, you will continue to be a friend of satan, you will continue to be tempted. If satan knows you like your possessions more than the Giver of the gift, you will not have a moment’s rest.”




 Earlier on, Wise Man Racine gave a message titled, “Move God” where he explained how and why the faith of the Biblical characters moved God to act.    “Faith is not a risk but a sure and practical act”, he said.











Again, many people lined up to bear testimony to what God the Almighty has done in their lives. Below, are a selected few:

Mr. Ben Makhuvele Soyaphi was an embodiment of sicknesses. He suffered a stiff neck due to severe nerve compression. As a result of this, he experienced numbness and could not do anything on his own. He had to wear a permanent neck collar and lumbar corset. He also had the problem of severe lumber spondylosis which affected the lower part of his body and as a result, he could not walk on his own. Doctors told him his situation could not be treated medically unless he was ready to undergo an operation with a 50-50 chance of survival. At this point, all the doctors could do was to prescribe him a strong pain killer which became his survival kit. Without it, he would suffer a severe and paralyzing pain.



Left with no option, it came with huge relief when he eventually made it to The SCOAN last Saturday in search of the Great Physician, Jesus Christ. Hunched in his chair at the prayer line, wrapped in a corset and his head nestled in a neck collar, he cut a pathetic figure of one in huge pain. When the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua approached and stretched his hand to him and touched his affected areas, the overwhelming healing power of Jesus Christ was unmistakable. Mr Ben twitched, writhed, moaned and groaned as health seeped back into his limbs and organs.



A minute later, he shocked everyone as he stood up and started to walk after so many years of spinal and cervical body torture. He advised the congregation to always seek God because He is the answer to all fundamental issues of life.






Mr Sekhodiane Matome Esrom is a farmer from South Africa. He had been into the trade for seven years but there was little progress despite owning huge acres of citrus farms which generates high demand at the international market. His produce could not meet the required certification for exportation. Because of this, he was selling to local markets and juice factories. It was not until he started praying with the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, on Emmanuel TV that life changed. One day, a man came and asked to buy the land, apparently swayed by its potential. When he refused to sell, the man offered to help him. He brought in machinery and agricultural experts who sprayed chemicals on the piece of land. Thank God, when experts later visited and carried out inspections on his produce, they approved his citrus produce for export and he is now an international exporter. Overjoyed, he explained that all this was because of God’s intervention in his life. As a way of giving back, he is involved in charity works. He takes care of children on the farm by providing them with food and school material so they can do well at school and have a bright future. Praise God!

A teacher by profession, Mrs Mashabathakga Mapula from South Africa was severely handicapped in her career and personal life due to a crippling and debilitating Ankylosing Spondylitis of the spine and disc hernia. For eight years, she taught her students only by sitting and instructing them. She was in constant pain. The doctors could only recommend a lumbar corset to support her back and ease the terrible pain to a degree.



As someone who used to move around and be active in her teaching job, this was a very difficult development for her. Hope dawned in her heart as she started watching Emmanuel TV and saw people in worse conditions than her get healed of their sicknesses. She finally made her way to The SCOAN for her encounter with the Healer, Jesus Christ. At the prayer line, the light of God operating through Prophet T.B. Joshua overcame the darkness of her sickness and she was healed. Capturing the moment of her healing, she said an electric shock hit her when the man of God prayed for her. Then, without realizing it, as the man of God asked her to walk, she stood up within an instant and started walking again. It wasn’t until she was half way down the prayer line that it dawned on her that normally, she would not even have been able to rise out of the seat in this space of time.



As she testified live in the church, she cast aside the lumbar corset she had unwillingly used for eight pain-filled years just like blind Bartimaeus cast aside his roadside garment and received new life in Christ. She walked freely and joyfully for the glory of God, no longer experiencing any difficulty or discomfort. To God’s power, nothing is impossible.



Miss Ramokoena Camilla Matsek from Lesotho came to The SCOAN at a point when she was considering writing her PhD in Higher Education Studies with the University of Free State. Having received the Anointing Water, she filled in a bursary form which was being circulated online. In faith, she ministered the Anointing Water on the computer, punched the ‘send’ key and claimed her bursary, in Jesus’ name. After a month, she received a confirmation letter from the university, indicating that she had been offered the scholarship!

In another testimony, her daughter was having abdominal pain. This was after she had previously undergone an operation due to the same problem in the past. Faced with a similar situation and considering her tender age, she refused to endorse her second operation. Lucky enough, they had a few drops of the Anointing Water which she ministered on her and declared her healed. As soon as the Anointing Water was ministered, she started to behave like someone in labour and she discharged a massive of blood clot – a giant fibroid. The pain subsided and she was able to sit properly and sat for her examination. Mrs Matsek told the congregation and viewers of Emmanuel TV, there is power in the name Jesus Christ. She advised everyone to trust in the Almighty!

For 12 years, Mrs Jennifer Afua from Ghana had been facing a court case concerning a piece of land and decided to come to The SCOAN to seek God’s opinion on the matter. Graciously, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied into her life that God would solve the case. Indeed, the prophecy came to pass with thundering force as just a week later, she returned to The SCOAN to confirm that the court case had been settled amicably outside of the court in just a day!
She also testified of God’s protection in her hospitality business. She owns a hotel and had suddenly experienced two terrible accidents due to ground floor industrial iron fires caused by negligence. However, the fire did not affect the building at all as she had ministered the Anointing Water all over her property,



without which she stated that untold millions of damage would have been incurred to her hotel, properties adjacent to theirs and numerous vehicles parked in their enclosure. In a normal circumstance, the whole building would have been destroyed but through the Anointing Water and Anointing Stickers, the fire was not able to do any damage beyond the power point where the iron had been left plugged. She advised everyone to look unto God for His protection and power and that in God’s mercy, they would not be excluded.

God’s power was tangible as Prophet TB Joshua led the congregation and viewers of Emmanuel TV worldwide in a time of prayer against their weakness:
“Open your lips and begin to command out all spirits of sorcery, witchcraft and divination, in the name of Jesus Christ! There is a common saying, “I am addicted to talking too much, eating too much, sleeping too much, smoking and fleshly desires.” All spirits of addiction, immorality in your life – begin to rebuke them!



Viewers all over the world, receive your portion! Whatever sickness, whatever they call it – there is no sickness Jesus cannot cure. Be healed, in the name of Jesus! Dry bones rise again!
All spirits operating in your system – be cast out, in the name of Jesus! Cover yourself with the blood of Jesus. Let there be light in your flesh, fluid, bones, blood, tendons, in Jesus’ name. It is well, in the name of Jesus Christ!
Commit your finances, career, business, and destiny to God. Good morning – my career, health, future and destiny – it is a new dawn!”

Satan had nowhere to run on Sunday as the Holy Spirit swept through the congregation, setting free those that were in bondage in a powerful move that affirmed The SCOAN as the arena of liberty. All souls that came weighed down by worries and demonic oppression went back cleansed, renewed and energized to reposition their stand in Christ Jesus. As the anointed servant of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua delivered a prayer of deliverance in the power of the Holy Ghost; even the most obstinate demons could not withstand the fire from above but to surrender their occupancy for the light to take over. The man of God taught a prophetic message on the need for maintaining a Christian character, saying nothing can maintain our position except character. Whatever we will become, he said, is not a big deal but maintaining whatever one becomes.
He taught, “In this case, we have a role to play. It is not all up to God, certainly, it is not all up to you. Whatever you are waiting for; the miracle, the healing – you deserve it because God wants excellence for you.



He loves you and is concerned about you. He does not want you to suffer. Your character will make you to be able to carry whatever fame, position you occupy. But if those things are bigger, too heavy for your character to carry, then, it is better not to be famous, wealthy and popular without character. Our character gives birth to our possession and God is in us in the person of character.”

The man of God then ministered to visitors at the prayer line where God manifested Himself through healings and deliverances. Many people were set free of various sicknesses and evil possession, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Earlier, Wise Man Harry preached a message of restoration titled: MODIFY YOUR MIND whose proof text was from 1 Corinthians 2:12-16.

He said, “In the mind of Christ there is no poverty, failure or sickness. Therefore, we must have the mind of Christ. When you have the mind of Christ, you become spiritually minded. When you are spiritually minded, you will never mind what people say about you. You will go on and on in the midst of strong opposition. I mean, you will stand the test of time, no matter the level of opposition.”




Scores of people lined up to testify to the glory of God for what He has done in their lives. Here are a selected few of the testimonies:

When Mrs Justina Chilambwe from Zambia got married to her husband 12 years ago, she eagerly looked forward to a fruitful marriage. Unfortunately, it was not to be. She could not bear a child and no one could offer solution. It became a big concern as days turned into months and years but with no fruit of the womb. People started to gossip and abuse her over her predicament and soon the situation became a crisis. It was no longer a marriage of joy for them. It was one filled with tears. Mrs Chilambwe began to visit hospitals where they conducted tests but could find no problem with her. Actually, they told her she was fertile. Everyone was confused. Out of desperation, she started visiting herbalists where she was made to drink various concoctions but still nothing worked out.
She was so depressed that she started to toy with the idea of committing suicide. One day, she was told of Emmanuel TV which she encouraged her husband to install in the house. As she watched the testimonies of people who were once in her own predicament but now holding babies in their hands after prayer, she got excited and began to believe that her solution lied with God somewhere in Lagos, Nigeria. When she eventually received the Anointing Water and the Anointing Sticker through a pastor who frequently visited The SCOAN, she became the happiest person. She prayed and ministered it on herself, asking God to give her children – believing that barrenness was not her portion. She placed the sticker on her abdomen upon which she started to vomit strange substances.



The very month she ministered the Anointing Water, she became pregnant, and the pregnancy is now eight months as she looks forward to a greater testimony when the baby will be finally delivered.


Mr Mbaliso Mbambe from South Africa was under heavy bondage that threatened to break his once happy home. He was addicted to alcohol and the smoking of cigarettes and hard stuffs such as cocaine, for ten years. This made him to sleep out of his matrimonial home and womanize. This gave him the spirit of anger and he became so violent that he often fought his wife. He knew this was a big problem and he certainly loved his wife. To add salt to the already festering wound, his business was failing and the little money it gave him, he spent on drug abuse. They visited churches and fasted but all in vain. The more they prayed, the nastier the urge became. Right from fasting, he would go to beer parlours, mixing up with bad friends all over again. Together, they would chain-smoke and abuse drugs. At one point, he was arrested because of the same problem during which he stayed under police custody for seven days. It was not until a friend helped him install Emmanuel TV in their house where they watched powerful testimonies of people who had been set free from similar enslavement that he saw the light.
The moment he received his own Anointing Water through a friend who had been to The SCOAN, he knew his problems were over. He prayed and ministered it on himself, in Jesus’ name. Immediately, he felt a stomach upset and he vomited poisonous substances. Since then, the idea of taking alcohol and smoking repulsed him. He read the Word of God frequently and always prayed to God to help him maintain the newly found peace. Not long after, his finances picked up and his business which had been suffering stagnation was also set free and he started receiving contracts. His wife testified how the blood of Jesus Christ has restored affection in their marriage and brought breakthrough in their finances through her husband’s deliverance. Praise God!





Mrs Faith Dimkpa and her family came with an extraordinary testimony. She had the problem of an overdue pregnancy and was experiencing evil attacks. When she was close to her delivery, the doctor said the baby was in breech presentation and they gave her only five days before she would have to be operated because her placenta was ruptured. She decided to rush to The SCOAN and was placed on the prayer line where the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, prayed for her. Immediately, labour started and she went back to the same hospital. To the glory of God, she delivered her baby safely without operation. The doctors described it as a miracle. It was a medical impossibility but a possibility by God. She and her husband came on Sunday with their baby as a testimony of God’s power.





It was all doom and gloom for Engineer Chris Onuegbu. For 29 years, working for one of the tertiary institutions in Nigeria, he only experienced promotion once in 26 years. It was one of the most frustrating setbacks. His last promotion was in 1994. He felt downcast and depressed as he watched others, less experienced and younger than him, cruise above him in ranks. It weighed heavily on him and always wondered why only him. It was not until 2011 when he discovered Emmanuel TV that his life changed. He started praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua and the same year, he had the first breakthrough. He was able to complete his Masters degree that same year. This is a degree he had pursued for years but failed to accomplish. In 2012, the long awaited promotion came and he was made a senior lecturer. That is not all. He was the same year appointed Head of his department and later dean of faculty. As if this was not sufficient, he was appointed as director of one of the Institution’s campuses. He was also chosen to represent his institution at an international conference in India!
Meanwhile, his son, Akachukwu had been suffering from sickle cell anemia from birth. He had no medical chance to come over it until he brought him to The SCOAN after several frustrating medical applications. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, prayed for him and he received his healing. Now his genotype has changed from SS to AA. That aside, the boy whose academic performances had once dropped to the lowest ebbs, is now one of the leading academic lights in his class. Their faces, radiant with joy and happiness; father and son came to share the awesome breakthroughs they have received in Christ Jesus.





Before Mrs Ebak came to The SCOAN sometime this year; she was the saddest and most depressed woman in the world. Her husband, a mobile police officer, was in police custody charged with murder. He was accused of killing a senior police officer. If the husband was found guilty, he would spend the rest of his life behind the cold walls of a police cell, away from his wife and two children. What happened was that her husband had gone to the northern state of Nigeria when the alleged police officer was said to have been shot. However, there was no evidence that Mr Ebak was the one responsible. He was being wrongly held.
Behold, when she came to The SCOAN, she received her breakthrough through a prophecy from Prophet T.B. Joshua who mentioned the issue, saying, “Where is your husband? You are lonely and your house is scattered.”
Later in the Prophet’s office, she received the Anointing Water and another word of prophecy that as soon as the Anointing Water reached her husband, he would be released. She handed the Anointing Water, together with a letter explaining the words of prophecy she had received, to a brother who was to take them to her husband at the state where he was imprisoned. While the brother was still contemplating how he would get to the state considering the danger the route imposed, he saw the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua in his dream. The man of God gave him his Bible and said, “Hold my Bible, I will be ahead of you”. By the time he woke up, he was confident to embark on the journey. He readily took the Anointing Water and letter to Mr Ebak in prison. Miraculously, the following day after Mr Ebak had ministered the Anointing Water, his file that had been missing was found. His case was then taken to court where he was charged for an offence that warranted life imprisonment. The next time his case came up in the court, he prayed and ministered the Anointing Water again and all those who had falsely testified against him became speechless. He was soon discharged and acquitted for lack of evidence. Not only that, he was reinstated back to his job.





Having no job to provide for his needs, Mr James Gba started to browse the internet in search of one but what he got at the end was not what he bargained for. During the period of browsing the internet for a job, he received an email with a link. Upon viewing the site, he discovered it was a pornographic link and he became addicted to pornography. That was the beginning of more misfortune for Mr Gba. He began to experience nightmares and his body became weak. Everything went down. He wanted to quit the bad habit but he could not master it. While in this predicament, a friend introduced him to The SCOAN. Later, he obtained the Anointing Water which he ministered in Jesus’ name. Immediately, his addiction to pornography was broken. Two days later, he received a call from an organization he had once applied to. He was offered a job. Shortly after this, he got another job offer from a bigger organization. Now a well-employed man, he has been able to procure a piece of land, pay his children’s school fees and live a happy life free of pornography. He advised people to be careful what they do on internet so they don’t fall into a trap as he did!





South African national, Mrs Motlalepule Zulu woke up one morning with a pricking sensation in her shoulder and arm. It felt as if someone was pricking needles into her flesh. It felt terrible and she went to see the doctor but they could not diagnose any cause. The pain radiated to her neck and she was given a neck collar. If she dared to sleep without wearing it, she would wake up with a very severe headache. Her body was always heavy and sore. This affected her job and she decided to come to The SCOAN where she was prayed for by Prophet T.B. Joshua. With just a tap from the man of God, she fell to the ground and she received her instant healing. When she went to sleep later, she woke up in the middle of the night and to her surprise, she did not experience those pains again. She thanked God for healing her and for setting her free from her sickness. To prove her complete healing, she turned around her head and tossed away the neck collar!



The service closed with the ministration of the New Anointing Water where many more people were rescued from evil captivities.
