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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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



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




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



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

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

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

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




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




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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



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




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




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

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

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




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

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



Hon Tamaraudoubra Zimughan

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

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



Alhaji Kassim Ajisebata

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


Alhaji Kassim Ajisebata

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

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

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



Mr Christian Ekaplugh

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

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

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



Rauna Kakehongo

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

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




Rauna Kakehongo At The Prayerline

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

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


Rauna Kakehongo


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


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


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



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

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

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


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

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




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


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

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





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

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


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


Prophet TB Joshua

Prophet TB Joshua

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

Wiseman Daniel

Wiseman Daniel

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


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


Isaac Lenity

Isaac Lenity



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

SCOAN Prayer Line

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



What a God we have to worship; what a Son we have to praise; what a future lies before us!


Mrs Emelda Mbewe & husband

Mrs Emelda Mbewe & husband

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


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


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

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


Mrs Lydia Joseph

Mrs Lydia Joseph

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


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

Sebastien Kanga Kamdem

Sebastien Kanga Kamdem

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


Madam Agnes Njabili

Madam Agnes Njabili

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

SCOAN Prayer Line

SCOAN Prayer Line



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



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

SCOAN Prayer Line

SCOAN Prayer Line

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





Mr Segun Omotosho

Mr Segun Omotosho

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




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

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



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

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

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


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




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

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





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

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

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

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

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





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

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





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





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





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

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

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


Packed to capacity and spilling over to the overflow canopies, The SCOAN, on Sunday, was the place to be. From power prayers that crashed spiritual storms to surrender to calmness, to the great and spectacular works of miracles that saw many people receive their healing and deliverance from the talons of the wicked, the incredible power of God was indisputable. Among the many memorable events, the young woman from Ghana, who was healed from mysterious needles that were lodged in her system, returned grinning and glowing with good health to testify that all the pricking she used to feel, left her the moment she encountered the resurrection power of Jesus Christ through the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua; and that ever since, she has become a new person. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, stepped onto the altar and taught with power on the issue of faith, explaining the degrees of faith and how they matter in a Christian life.

His words: “If you possess Christ in deep level, you will be able to give away Christ in deep level. You can only give away that which you possess. When you possess Him in deepest level, you will be able to give away in deepest level. The power to do all things is with you, but the amount of faith you have is the amount of power you release. There is power in our mouth; the belief in our heart is released by faith out of our mouth.” Having powerfully taught this interesting topic; he led the church and viewers of Emmanuel TV into commanding evil spirits in the lives of people to order. In a powerful time of mass prayer for the nations, Prophet T.B. Joshua ordered satan, the manufacturer of sickness, disease, suffering and failure to order in every area. The atmosphere was charged as the man of God said, “Begin to release your nation, your country in the name of Jesus! Open your lips and order your children out of the forest right now! Whatever you command here shall be command in Heaven. Write it down, you have a testimony!”


WISEMAN RACINEWise Man Racine preached on the topic:  GRAB ONTO FAITH which admonished Christians from ‘looking at life and its adversities from a natural point of view’ saying ‘it only brings fear.’ Quoting various scriptures, he said, “When you log into the new realm above the senses, you will know God’s opinion about yourself; the opening of the eyes of our faith is the silencing of our fear. In the face of overwhelming circumstances, David logged into the realm above the senses and saw the victory; he believed the vision and spoke the Word of faith and Goliath fell. Hannah suffered barrenness for so many years, she received and believed the Word of faith spoken by Eli and her life of barrenness came to an end. She began to describe the taste of honey when she was still swallowing tears.  Her heart responded to the Word of faith and saw beyond her barrenness Samuel, the promised child, a great prophet.”



Many people came to testify to the goodness of God in their lives. Here are just a few of their amazing stories.



Miss Mary Aliyu from Abuja lay in the hospital bed writhing in agony. A test by doctors had revealed a serious attack of high blood pressure and diabetes. She was losing weight and found herself unable to even bathe herself. A peaceful sleep was a faraway cry for her as she had to wake up at least ten times a night to urinate. For three months, she lay in hospital in great pain with no hope until a friend brought her the Anointing Water. A single drop was ministered to her tongue. Although she was not sure if this was enough to set her free, she offered a silent prayer, commanding all traces of diabetes out of her system, in Jesus’ name. To her amazement, that night, she drifted into a deep and sound sleep. She did not get up to urinate either and that marked her freedom. When she woke up in the morning, all the pain had disappeared. She was able to bathe herself and eat. Doctors were surprised to see the woman who had been condemned to the hospital bed, finally walking on her own and looking healthy. They arranged for another test to be carried out. When the results came, all traces of diabetes and high blood pressure had gone. She advised people to trust in God.



   When Magistrate Mavis Kwainoe, a State magistrate from Ghana decided to become an Emmanuel TV Partner, she probably did not realize the extent of Heavenly grace she was unlocking on herself through her philanthropy. Just as she had joined Prophet T.B. Joshua and the Emmanuel TV Partners in changing peoples’ lives, her life has also experienced extraordinary transformation by the power of Jesus Christ.

Magistrate Kwainoe came to The SCOAN four years ago where she received the Anointing Water. In her workplace, an opportunity for staff to further their education with a scholarship abroad had risen. However, she was the least qualified and experienced in her department and, therefore, stood little chance. Nevertheless, she wrote her essays and prepared her résumé to apply. After praying and ministering the Anointing Water on the documents, she was the only one who passed the examinations for the scholarship programme. Her superiors were astonished at the news that the least among them had been granted the maximum scholarship award. She sent two applications to two different schools, gained admission to both and was asked to make her choice. She opted to study at the prestigious George Washington University in the United States of America.

She displayed documents outlining the details of her scholarship and the letter of acceptance from The George Washington University. Fees of US$43,920 have been provided for her as part of the full scholarship.

Mrs Beatrice Kwainoe, Magistrate Mavis’s mother, extolled the name of the Lord and gladly gave thanks to God for the overflowing breakthrough and the glory. She advised, “If you are a good giver, you shall receive.”


MR. AREN  He belonged to the mafia. Together with members of his notorious gang, Mr Aren, an Armenian living in Holland, travelled Europe perpetrating all forms of evil from robbery to drug trafficking. In spite of the ill-gotten money he made through robbing people and many other clandestine activities, he had a mountain of personal and health problems. He grew tired of this life which never granted him peace or progress. Desperate to find a solution, hesearched the internet for a supernatural cure and came across youtube videos of Prophet TB Joshua. Amazed by what he saw, he came to The SCOAN where a prophecy from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, exposed the darkness that was hiding within him saying that he had the spirit of robbery and belonged to a gang. Perplexed that any man could discover such a hidden evil he had kept to himself for many years, he confirmed the prophecy, explaining how he had started stealing and taking drugs at a very young age. This, he said, led him to join a notorious mafia gang in Europe. Mr Aren was instantly delivered through the prophecy in the power of the Holy Spirit. Smiling, he said he now feels free and happy. Commenting on Mr Aren’s spiritual rebirth, Prophet T.B. Joshua said that evil spirits are the cause of suffering, crime and atrocities in the world today, saying, “There are powers that cause people to be bowed down in bondage.”

Once a hardened criminal, now a friend of Christ, Mr Aren is free and full of joy. He now sleeps peacefully without any nightmares!



SABOI CHITETAWhen Mrs Saboi Chiteta from Zambia came to The SCOAN early this year, she was under heavy chains of limitation. Nothing seemed to work for her. Despite being an accountant, she was serving in a totally different area at her place of work and her husband was a chain smoker. Not only that, they were unable to sell off a property for many years, bringing serious limitations in their life. Everything changed with a single visit to The SCOAN. She received the Anointing Water. When she got back home, miracles started bombarding them from all directions. It started with her husband who, after ministering the Anointing Water, stopped smoking, breaking his 18 year addiction. They were able to dispose of their property and build a business apartment in an up-market location. Knowing that better was not good enough, they exercised their faith further and applied for a farmland with the Ministry of Lands. The government offered them a four hectare piece of land. To crown it all, she has been relocated to the accounts department of her company. Praise Lord!




JESSE DELALILove of money, the Bible says, is the root of all evil. The fetish story of Mr Jesse, a 20-year-old student from Ghana, exemplifies this Scripture well. Born and raised in a Christian home, he was set for a godly life until one day when he travelled to the village to attend a funeral ceremony. He witnessed idol worshipping whereby the priest used his mouth to tear off the head of a live chicken. On his return back home, he noticed a strange and ugly characteristic within him. He started to steal things from his home. Every time he saw money or little things in the home, his heart would not rest until he picked it. Soon, the urge grew and he started to snatch things from friends too, particularly money. It did not matter where it was hidden; he would find it. He stole thousands of dollars from his father to go out and squandered on expensive designer shoes, clothes and the latest gadgets. The problem became chronic when he got to university and encountered colleagues who drove fancy cars and lived a big, luxurious life. He was surprised that students could have such money. One of them took him to a spiritualist who gave him two options – ‘wallet money’ or ‘instant money’. With ‘instant money,’ there was a box the spiritualist would make incantations over, throw a black powder inside and then, any amount of money he wanted would appear in the box. The conditions were that, he immediately had to put the amount; that is, the percentage charged for producing him the money in the bank which he would later withdraw for them after about a week from his bank account so that they would be getting a different money and not the one produced by magic. Then from the remaining money in his hand, he had to give some little money to three different virgin girls, unknowingly ruining their future for they would not give birth in their lives.

Soon, the dirty money from the satanic altar came with its dirty lifestyle and started to stain his otherwise Christian background leading him to be drinking heavily, smoking and taking hard drugs as well as womanizing in clubs. Not even the strictness of his father would redeem his rapidly deteriorating lifestyle. He started to loan his friends money and collect their valuables as collateral which they would not be able to redeem back.

One day, he wanted to get money from his father for another money ritual but his father told him that unless he went to The SCOAN, he was not giving him any more money. Jesse detested anything to do with The SCOAN but his aunt had a leg problem and wanted to come to the church for prayer. Reluctantly, he accompanied her to The SCOAN where he received the shock of his life. He saw one of his friends from Ghana, who was also a habitual thief like him testify of his deliverance the previous week. He laughed it off thinking it was all arranged comedy and started planning how, once back home he would be spending the money his father had promised him.

In the church, the evil spirit told him to run away but, as the man of God was already on the altar, he could not even stand up. Then, the wise men started laying hands on people. He thought he would dodge them but, suddenly, he felt three invisible hard slaps which took him off his feet. He was confused, wondering what was happening to him. He had been to many places for prayer but had never experienced anything like this. Before he knew it, he saw intense fire around the wise men and, unable to run, he was overwhelmed by the power of the Holy Spirit. He fell to the ground. Light had prevailed over darkness; he was set free!

After his deliverance, he said that he no longer felt that hatred towards the things of God neither does he have the uncontrollable urge to steal, smoke, drink and destroy. Speaking of the instant money rituals that had ruined his life, the 20 year-old advised the youth that if satan gives you something with the right hand that seems like apparent blessing, he takes from you with the left hand what your life depends on.



PASTOR & MRS. KIM JEONG SHOO  Pastor and Mrs Kim Jeong Shoo from South Korea came to testify to the greatness of God for the mighty healing He executed in their lives through a touch by Prophet T.B. Joshua during the Pastors’ Conference in South Korea early this year. Mrs Jeong Shoo had been experiencing ceased menstruation for ten horrible years. Because of this problem, she could not conceive. Being a pastor’s wife, she suffered humiliation and was depressed. Desperate, they visited many hospitals but there was no solution. Some specialists suggested a test-tube baby which she refused. She and her husband were also contemplating adopting a child. She, nevertheless, continued to believe that one day God would see her through. Pastor Jeong Shoo said the problem affected him a great deal as a minister of God. People began to ask how a pastor could have  no child for ten years. He was also not allowed to facilitate weddings at his church for the same reason. When they learned about the Pastors’ Conference with Prophet T.B. Joshua, their hopes lifted and they knew that their solution was just a touch away. She prayed for God to locate her and intervene in her dire situation. When the man of God approached her on that memorable day, she felt a breeze of wind blow into her life. Immediately, she felt pain in her stomach and her menstruation which had ceased began to flow. Today, they are a happy couple redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ and a living testimony of His ability. They advised, “There is nothing impossible with the Almighty God.”


REBECCA IDI  (1)  Miss Rebecca Idi from Ghana was for three years experiencing pricking in her abdomen and suspected it could be ulcers but she was in for a shocker. A visit to the hospital revealed that she had needles lodged in her body.  Surprisingly, every time the doctor carried out an operation on her, five needles would replace the one removed. Her stomach was covered with scars, horrible reminders of the doctor’s scalpel. In total, 18 needles had been surgically removed from her body and yet, scores could still be seen littered in her system through an x-ray. Tired of opening her up, the doctors realized the issue was beyond medical wisdom and advised that she should seek for solution elsewhere. She resolved to come to The SCOAN having earlier tried several spiritualists and native doctors to no avail. That was last week and Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her at the prayer line in the power of the Holy Spirit and the 21-year-old was declared free.






Testifying on Sunday, accompanied by members of her family, her face was distinguishably radiant and glowing with full life. She recapped the painful ordeal she had gone through passing from hospital to herbal homes without cure. After the prayer, she found that there was no more pain as the needles had gone. She could sleep easily and eat freely. Smiling, she admitted that she found herself wondering, “Where are the needles that God removed from me?” Now, she can move, sit and stand freely without pain or discomfort. She happily pressed all over her abdomen to demonstrate that there was no more pain.

There was also nothing like the presence of blood in her urine after the healing, contrary to before the prayer when then needles used to cause internal bleeding which would come out in her urine.

Reflecting on the miraculous event, Prophet T.B. Joshua drew the congregation’s attention to the Word in the Book of John 3:32-36.  “He testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony. Whoever has accepted it has certified that God is truthful. For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit. The Father loves the Son and has placed everything in his hands. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.”

She advised the world, especially the youth to put their hope in God as He was the only One who could save them. It was true she had spent a lot of money in the process of searching for solution but now, she has known God and did not pay a dime to receive this total solution from Him. God is great and His mercy endures forever.

What a day, overflowing with heavenly anointing, last Sunday was! From the landmark deliverance of a woman from Ghana who came with a horrible case of needles lodged in her system, to the astounding testimonies of God’s power, the service was phenomenal and breathtaking. The worship by the choir, the electrifying power of the Holy Spirit that unleashed spectacular healings and deliverances and the amazing prophecies all bore witness to the abundantly available anointing as God used the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, to set His people free from bondage.




Commenting on the woman whose case medical doctors had failed to permanently remove through surgical procedure, he said: “In the natural, you cannot defeat satan. The more you try, the more he becomes bigger.” By the power of the Holy Spirit, the man of God later on went ahead to set her free from her agony that had left her with multiple scars of surgeries through futile medical efforts. Prophet T.B. Joshua also taught on the power of faith, likening it to a heavenly currency. He then ministered prophecy to the congregation before attending to visitors who had come from all over the world at the prayer line where many people were set free from demonic affliction.


Earlier in the day, Wise Man Daniel delivered a thought-provoking message that prodded Christians not to murmur or grumble, but use their faith to access God’s blessings. Titled ‘USE YOUR FAITH TO PUT A DEMAND’ and anchored on the scripture from Hebrews 11:6, he said it is not the amount of prayer one prays that counts but the faith one puts into one’s prayer. He explained: “The Healer, the Deliverer, the Blessing Provider and the Saviour of the world is saying here, ‘It is impossible to please Me without faith.’ This implies that, as long as you have faith, God will work for you. Empty confession or profession of faith will not help us at all. Therefore, as a child of God, if you examine your life, you will find out how much faith you have. If you examine your life, you will know how much you please God, because only faith pleases Him – nothing else.”




Cementing his message with the cases of blind Bartimaeus and the woman with the issue of blood, he said: “Blind Bartimaeus’ shout was unique and different because it was a shout born of faith, which made Christ Jesus to stop in front of him. Such a shout could not be stopped by opposition of any form. The woman with the issue of blood believed enough to press through the crowd to touch the Healer Himself. As a Christian, when you discover a true minister of God, your responsibility is to believe.”



The abundant anointing, which God has made available through His servants, was reflected in the hundreds of people who came forward to testify to the glory of God.   Here are but a few of them:



She could barely breathe. As the crowds surged forward, pushing to enter the stadium, Mercy knew that the end was nigh. To her right, she saw a body lying unconscious, the crowd trampling on the lifeless frame unperturbed. Suddenly, a force from behind pushed her off balance and Mercy fell. Darkness reigned as the stampede surged forward and the young job-seeker lost all consciousness. One week later, Mercy opened her eyes to discover she was in a hospital ward. An oxygen mask was fitted to her face and doctors were fighting for her survival. Miss Mercy Attaidu was a victim of the fatal stampede in the National Stadium in Abuja when a job interview for the Nigerian Immigration Services drew an unprecedented crowd. Finally regaining consciousness, Mercy was informed by doctors that a bone in her neck had shifted as a result of a fracture and her spinal cord was severely damaged. Released from hospital several months later, she was given a walking frame, lumbar corset and neck collar to support her and booked for an operation on her neck.


Apart from the physical agony, bitterness toward the authorities responsible for the calamity welled up in her heart. What began as a hopeful search for employment after graduating ended up with her being partially paralyzed. As despondency continued to increase its grip, a friend recommended Mercy, a native of Kogi State, to visit The SCOAN and receive prayer before undergoing the operation. In the prayer line, as Prophet T.B. Joshua approached her and began to pray, the miraculous unfolded! Immediately after prayer in the power of the Holy Spirit, the terrible pain she had been experiencing vanished and she began to walk freely without the use of her walking aids! Apart from her physical healing, Prophet T.B. Joshua advised Mercy to remove the grudge she had in her heart toward Nigeria and promised to help her get a job. Two weeks down the line, Mercy stood before The SCOAN congregation to testify that she is completely healed and no longer needed an operation! She said that her love for the nation Nigeria had been restored and her zeal for life supernaturally replenished. Thank You, Jesus!



For five years, Ms. Catherine Moseki from Botswana had been walking the thorny path of limitation in progress. Despite possessing requisite qualifications and being a hard worker, promotion simply avoided her. She watched in anger as her junior colleagues rose above her in rank. Decided enough was enough, she came to The SCOAN in December last year where she received the Anointing Water. Back home in Botswana, she received a surprise call.


Her boss called her on a Sunday, inviting her for an interview. She was astounded but knew that the time had come for God to manifest in her life. She prayed, ministered the Anointing Water on herself and asked God to take charge. She was able to answer all questions satisfactorily and got her overdue promotion to the position of Chief Technical Assistant in the Ministry of Agriculture. To delay is indeed not to deny for those who trust in Jesus!



Mr Ganiyu Yusuf from Ondo was a handsome and jolly man and yet, under his infectious smile, lay the pitiable being of a very sad man. At his age, 60, he was still bedwetting and this humiliating affliction stole all his joy although very few knew the amount of bondage he was under. Even when time for him to marry came, he was too troubled to disclose to his lovebird and resolved not to say a thing about his embarrassing state lest he lost her. But nothing stays under wraps forever. Soon, his wife discovered and she was very bitter about it.


They became a sad couple but still hoped that one day, God would deliver them. During this period, he used to have bad dreams. He would see himself going to the toilet and before he knew it, his bed would be soaked in his own urine. One day, someone gave him the Anointing Water. Although he had little faith, he started praying, “God of Abraham, Isaac and T.B. Joshua, deliver me from bedwetting that has been disturbing me” and then, ministered the Anointing Water. To his surprise, he did not wet his bed that night. Together with his affliction went the bad dreams. Too good had his deliverance been that he had to wait for one year before he could come for his testimony – to be sure that the shame he had endured for six decades was indeed permanently gone. He advised people all over the world to look and focus on God alone and that Jesus Christ is the Healer.



“I sold my soul to satan to get what I wanted.” These were the words of Mr Frank Kpodzo, a young Ghanaian who explained how his idolatrous and struggling family background pushed him into the dark world of a secret cult. Frank was a freemason. Initially told that the ‘group’ was merely a social gathering with financial perks attached, it was only after initiation that Mr Frank realized the spiritual covenant he had entered by becoming a freemason. He was initiated in a Masonic Lodge where his clothes were removed, his face blindfolded and an oath of secrecy taken. Upon becoming a freemason member, Frank learned there were degrees or levels of influence in the cult, the highest being the 53rd degree. He himself reached the 22nd degree where his understanding was broadened to know that the covenant he had entered by joining freemasonry was to sell his soul to satan in exchange for worldly riches.


Sent on assignments to influence youth to join the cult, he explained how he would socialize with young people at clubs and entice them to join. By so doing, countless young people had been initiated into this satanic society through Frank’s influence. He explained that the more people he brought to join freemasonry, the higher he was upgraded in the cult. Mr Frank confessed that although he was a drunkard, smoker and womanizer before, these bad habits increased exponentially upon his initiation. Although he had money, he lacked peace as realization that he was hell-bound at death dawned on him. It was only when he discovered Emmanuel TV that he saw a greater spiritual power at work and resolved to leave the secret cult. However, with such a strong spiritual connection, merely desiring to leave was not enough.


Mr. Frank needed deliverance. Coming to The SCOAN, he received prayer from Wise Man Harry where the evil spirit, stemming from an idol his family worshipped, was exposed and expelled. Last Sunday was his return to The SCOAN to testify that after deliverance, he slept peacefully, had no more spiritual encounters with freemason members in his dreams and no more urge to smoke, drink, masturbate or womanize. He advised youth not to allow their situations to derail them to satanic deception, knowing that God’s power is above all!



In 2009, Mr Kofi Smiles from Ghana came to The SCOAN with the problem of inability to walk due to advanced osteoarthritis for more than 14 years. The only option he was given by the doctor in order for him to walk again, was to go for a knee replacement surgery. Because of the problem, he could no longer go to his work. He was forced to stay in the house all day long with only his wife assisting him do the most basic duties, such as going to the toilet. As the problem lingered, he realized that he needed to get a wheelchair because the pain was intensifying by the day. His wife advised him to start watching Emmanuel TV and, finally, he decided to come with his wife to the Arena of Liberty. He came completely unable to walk without the aid of his two crutches. After the prayer in the power of the Holy Spirit by Prophet T.B. Joshua, he started walking without the crutches, something he was unable to do for the past 14 years.


Now, it has been 5 years since he received his healing and he is still walking in the light of his testimony, all to the glory of God. Since he dropped his crutches, he has never picked them up again. He advised people to seek God in the Word of God, because the Word of God is true and sure.



Mr. Rodney Edmond Iwelu came to The SCOAN with the problem of joblessness for many years. As a young man, his desire was to be self reliant and yet, he could not get employment to make his dream come true. He had to depend on his parents for his daily upkeep. Even if he was to travel to church, his parents had to give him money for transport. His situation was so depressing that he often flirted with the idea to commit suicide.


One day, he was introduced to The SCOAN and he decided to come to worship and receive the Anointing Water. Back home, he prayed and ministered it to himself, asking God to solve his challenges and restore his destiny. Today, he is the proud owner of a cleaning company with 19 employees. He has contracts with many hotels and companies. He is free from depression and each time he wakes up in the morning, he sees purpose in life. The radical transformation in his life amazes his friends who used to know him before.  “Any evangelical item you receive from a true man of God, you must mix it with faith if God is to manifest Himself,” he said.



The case of Rebecca Idi, a young Ghanaian, baffled medical doctors. Needles had mysteriously appeared all over her body without any physical encounter or explanation. After the needles had been removed surgically, they would return five-fold, a fact attested to by an x-ray which showed the needles increasing throughout her body. It left the surgeon in charge of her case bewildered as there was no plausible scientific reason for the phenomena. A total of 18 needles had been removed from her body but hundreds more returned, causing Rebecca excruciating pain and discomfort on a daily basis. She was forced to leave school and stay isolated at home because of the strange condition.


After Rebecca was taken to a spiritualist in Ghana, her case only seemed to worsen. It was at this point that a family friend recommended she be bought to The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria. Addressing her situation, Prophet T.B. Joshua stated that the needles had entered her body through an incantation inspired by evil spirits and thus, only they could only leave through a command in the power of the Holy Spirit. He further explained that when your situation has become a curse, it is beyond mere natural or medical help; it requires Divine intervention. Later on, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for the young girl who instantly fell to the ground.


At that moment, she explained that she felt a strange force leaving her body! Rushing to the toilet, the elated Ghanaian began checking her body and screamed for joy. All signs and traces of the needles that she formerly felt in her body, alongside the excruciating pain that accompanied it, had disappeared in a glorious instant! Returning to the congregation, she joyfully testified that she could no longer feel the pricking of the mysterious needles and her body felt light! A Ghanaian medical doctor from the congregation came forward to check Rebecca, testifying that she had never heard of such a case and praising God for His miraculous intervention. “Where are the needles?” a delighted Rebecca asked the congregation, stunned that God had removed in a moment what had plagued her life and baffled medical doctors for years. Thank You, Jesus Christ!!!



Imagine a family where everyone – mother, sisters and aunts – are all prostitutes. As detesting as it may sound, this was the case with Miss Francisca whose family came bound and chained to the horrible spirit of prostitution, stemming from an idol that was worshipped from generation to generation. While Francisca was still very young, she saw her mother and aunt doing prostitution. Soon, the cycle continued in her own life as she also became a prostitute, sometimes meeting with more than 15 men in a single day. She carried demonic powers in her body which she employed to manipulate men. Any man who saw her tattoo emblazoned on her upper arm and had lustful intent towards her would easily be seduced. Each man she slept with would feel the negative repercussions in their lives, careers and relationships. She carried more lethal powers in her leg. It was while she was wantonly sleeping with various men, that one day, he encountered God through Prophet T.B. Joshua in a dream. The man of God accosted her to stop prostituting. In search of an answer to the strange encounter, she came to The SCOAN where the evil spirit in her spoke out and was eventually cast out in the name of Jesus Christ. Since that day, she has been free and the urge for men has left her.


While she was still having the spirit of prostitution, a woman used to appear to her in her dreams, deceiving her that her biological mother was not her mother. This made her to develop hatred for her mother. Now that she is free, she has started seeing her mother as a real mother in her life. Her mother confirmed coming from an idol worshipping family. She got married at the age of 15 and gave birth to two children to her first husband. With another man, she got another two children. After leaving her second marriage, she went on to marry her third husband and from there she became a prostitute. She would meet up to five men in a day. Miss Francisca also came with her sisters all of whom confessed to being prostitutes. They asked for prayer so that they could be delivered from the demonic attack.


After enjoying a free life since her deliverance last week, she urged all her friends who are into prostitution to seek God and receive their own deliverance so that they can live a godly life.



Olufunke Alao came with her daughters to The SCOAN to testify to the goodness of God. Last month, she came to The SCOAN to worship. She was holding her Nigerian flag as is the tradition at The SCOAN. During the mass prayer, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, encouraged people to keep their flags in their homes, offices or cars.


She placed hers in her car and one day, on her way to Akure for an appointment, she had a rude awakening. She saw people running for their lives. When she peered through her window to see what was going on, she discovered that there was an ambush. A gang of heavily armed men brandishing totting guns was walking from car to car robbing the shocked motorists. She started praying for God to deliver her. When they got to her car, they ordered her to wind down the glass. She did so while uttering prayer of faith when suddenly one of them screamed, “She is Joshua’s daughter, can’t you see the flag and Anointing Sticker. So, leave her alone”. Immediately, they ran away, leaving her alone and safe. She said that her security was in God alone and people must take seriously what God’s servants say.



Mr Awet Kebedom from Eritrea had been watching Emmanuel TV and had seen the deliverances that took place at The SCOAN. One day, his friend brought Anointing Water and Anointing Sticker for him from The SCOAN. He placed the Anointing Sticker on his car and he ministered the Anointing Water on a daily basis.


One day, while driving, he made a u-turn and suddenly a car that was speeding behind him smashed into it. His car was utterly destroyed in the collision yet he was completely protected by the Lord. He said that with this Anointing Water and Anointing Sticker, he could feel the presence of God. He showed the picture of the seriously damaged car beyond repair. In fact, he was unconscious for about seven hours before he finally woke up and found himself in the ICU with bruised kidney and fractured ribs. After ministering the Anointing Water, he was totally recovered and he can now drive again to the glory of God. With all these experiences, he calls the Anointing Water and Anointing Sticker ‘the signature of God’.



Mr Victor Richmond Sagoe from Ghana came to The SCOAN with his mother and received a message of prophecy by Prophet T.B. Joshua who exposed how the foundation of their family was crumbling due to a terrible spirit of stealing that had crippled his social and educational life.


Right from when he had known himself, he realised he had the embarrassing urge of stealing things around him. Coming from a well-to-do family, he never actually lacked anything and was always sponsored by his father to attain the highest levels of education. Even as he was in one of the best and most expensive universities in Ghana, he continued stealing. As his bad habit of kleptomania developed and matured, his loot became more expensive until he finally stole his mother’s jewellery worth hundreds of thousands of US Dollars. As his mother discovered that he was the one that had stolen and sold her precious gold coins which she inherited from her mother, she called for the authorities to arrest her own son!


Instead of being reformed, it was like he had graduated to a higher level in the craft. He had no intentions of stopping his dreadful vice. Becoming a professional, he started stealing things of greater value and would only trade them for things of no lasting value. He became a money squanderer, spending money on marijuana, alcohol, designer clothes and living a wasteful lifestyle. He would especially concentrate on stealing from people he knew, getting close to them and stealing, knowing that they would never suspect their closest friend to be the mastermind behind these heinous acts. He also discovered the knack for opening locked doors and padlocks. When he was moved to a different school, he tried to stay away from any friends, thinking that he would be able to maintain his focus by doing so. As he gained his first friend in the new place, his acts of stealing resumed once again. This time around, it grew even worse, pushing Victor to enter fraudulent business on internet. He started defrauding innocent victims of big amounts of money by impersonation and pretense. His condition became so severe that his mother, as a final solution, decided to bring him to The SCOAN and the Holy Spirit located them through the prophecy given by Prophet T.B. Joshua.


Confirming to the former notoriety of his son tearfully, his father, a police officer working for the UN, explained how he once had him arrested.  As Victor and family returned to The SCOAN a week later, he testified that all thoughts of stealing and theft had completely left him and he is now like a newborn baby. He advised youths reeling under the weight of his former lifestyle to avoid wrong influence and turn to God. His mother, joining to testify to the goodness of God, advised people to trust in the Lord with all their heart.



The first time Mr Friday Joshua Achema came to The SCOAN, he hid himself. Although he knew he was the one Prophet T.B. Joshua was referring to when he called out for a witchdoctor to come out, he refused. Instead, he sneaked out and went home to fast and pray; deceiving himself that his diabolical powers would leave him. It never occurred to him that it would require powers from above to set him free. When he returned during a prophetic service the following week, the man of God approached him on the same issue. He later sent evangelists with the witchdoctor to go and destroy his shrine in the power of the Holy Spirit.


Testifying, Mr Achema who was accompanied by members of his family, displayed his paraphernalia – the diabolical artillery he used to destroy people’s destinies, bring people counterfeit breakthroughs and cause harm to unsuspecting souls. He also brought out an oracle which people consulted. Along with it came red feathers he used to inflict sadness in people’s lives. Among other things, he had powers to influence court decisions including serious cases of murder. All he would do was evoke evil spirits to enter the presiding officers. People would be seeing his clients speaking, but in reality it was the oracle doing the talking which they didn’t know. If people came to him looking for fruit of the womb, he would give them children from the marine world after performing various sacrifices.


He would defraud his clients by asking them to bring materials they would not be able to find. For example, he would ask them to bring gorilla hair.  If the person said he could not, he would offer to travel out to a different country where he would get the hair. He would use this as justification for charging high prices. However, in reality, such bizarre items were never actually used but only requested so as to provide a platform for effective fraud.


As someone who had experienced a lot in the kingdom of darkness, he advised people those who are into any dubious character to change and follow Jesus because everything is vanity. ‘Have faith and trust in God who is able to do all things because the power of darkness would fail you’ he said.
