The atmosphere was electric as usual and the ambience created by the choir’s edifying renditions created a holy aroma in the entire congregation. The zest of expectation was vividly written on the faces of the congregants who joined the choir in delivering soul-lifting pieces to the glory of His name.

Amidst the charged atmosphere in The SCOAN cathedral, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua calmly walked to the altar and amplified the topic of the day: “You will never succeed in whatever you are doing unless you believe and you can never believe in any business or whatever you are doing unless it is your dream and your goal – your destiny, what you are destined to do. When you are doing what you are destined to do, even though you pass through the valley of the shadow of death, you will fear no one. But if you are not doing what you are destined to do, the shadow will quench you.”


According to the man of God, whose sermon centred on DESTINY, it is only our God-given dreams and talents that will stand the test of time. In other words, it is only when we are operating within our divine calling that we may be able to make progress because God had ordained it: “Hear what the Bible says, No trouble or tribulation can seize, stop, consume you except what is common to man. You will never succeed in any job, in anything you are doing unless you believe in that thing. How will you believe in a thing that is not your destiny? You are not destined to be an accountant and you doing the work of an accountant, you are not destined to be a pastor and you are doing the work of a pastor- that situation will crash you, you will be finished and your history will be gone”.


The man of God admonished the congregation about living fake and borrowed lives. According to him, people who try to do what others are doing will fail unless it is their destiny. His sermon laid bare the wrongness in many Christian lives which has become more of a competition rather than living out God’s divine purpose. He made particular reference to marriage, which he said has been misconceived by many people: “Marriage has become competition, running a race – this is why marriages crumble today. There are divorces everywhere, all over the world. Competition has come; crisis has come to the house. Today, marriage seems to be competition whereas it is supposed to be cooperation. In the same vein, Christianity too is co-operation, not competition”.

After nourishing the soul of the congregation with his spiritually wholesome message, the man of God proceeded to the Prayer Line where he laid hands on many who needed healing and deliverance and to the glory of God, there were great testimonies of healing and deliverance from age-long afflictions.



Citing the biblical example of Job and how he lost all his earthly possessions and yet remained faithful to God, Wise Man Harry observed that the death of a believer was not his end but a transition to a higher glory: “…Christians do not die, they are transmuted; they do not cease to be, but they are only removed from one world to another”.

He concluded by urging Christians to make Jesus Christ their source so that whether they die or live, they can say “I AM READY TO MEET HIM”.





The story of Mrs Nkelle Njoh, a Cameroonian living in Gabon was a sorrowful one until the Anointing Water rewrote her history in Jesus’ name. Married for nine years without a child, her husband threatened to leave her. She was desperate and scared of losing her marriage; she ran to her mother and confided in her. The response of her mother was simple: “You don’t have a problem; have you heard of Emmanuel TV?”



When the channel was turned on in front of her, her hope was rekindled. Her mother did not stop at that but determined to see her daughter happy, she accompanied her to The SCOAN in Lagos. She received the Anointing Water and when she ministered it in Jesus’ name and met with her husband, three months later, the happy news came out – that she was pregnant!

The daughter that repaired the marriage was named Blessing after the blessing of God and today Mrs Nkelle Njoh is once again pregnant and bubbling with joy. Advising people not to be selfish with the Anointing Water but to bless others, she said, “If you have Anointing Water, help your neighbours as not everyone has the opportunity to come to The SCOAN”.


Mrs Ifiora Eunice Nkem suffered from an ovarian cyst for three years, a problem that made her a frequent visitor to different hospitals and threatened her job. When her trips to the hospital became too frequent, she herself began to lose hope in a medical solution for her problem.




The pain was excruciating as she could hardly walk when the discomfort gripped her. Tired of her daily pain, one day she discovered Emmanuel TV and came to The SCOAN to receive the Anointing Water. She ministered it believing that her own case would not be different to the thousands she had seen on Emmanuel TV. Her joy returned as the pain vanished and she went back to the same hospital where the results of the test confirmed that the ovarian cyst was no longer there.

“Have hope in God – He is the God of impossibilities” she advised the crowd.



 The deep sea sparkled as evening came. Plunging into its depths, Christopher basked in the beauty of the South African ocean. Growing up, he never conceived in his wildest dreams that diving would be the profession he would eventually come to champion.



His story to diving glory began with an admission letter to a prominent South African diving school. However, after securing a visa, finances to purchase a ticket were scarce and it appeared the opportunity was about to disappear as speedily as it arose. Mr Okon desperately called on close confidants, seeking to raise sufficient funds for the ticket but no-one was ready to help. Bidding his goodbyes to friends and family in Akwa-Ibom, Christopher made his way to Lagos for his flight, albeit without the finances for the ticket. Before going to the airport, having watched Emmanuel TV on a few occasions, he decided to visit The SCOAN. Standing outside The SCOAN building, he offered a silent, poignant prayer. “God of T.B. Joshua, as I have seen others testify here, grant me my own testimony!” Pulling forth his Anointing Water, he ministered it on his phone and tried calling one of his friends who had previously told him he could not help. This time, the story changed! Required finances were immediately released and several days later, Christopher touched down in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Arriving at the diving school, another challenge arose. The initial complications in travel meant that he arrived late for the course, missing out on some vital lessons. An exam was set for the next day and Mr Okon had zero knowledge on the subject matter before him. Bringing out his Anointing Water, he ministered it on the examination papers, praying for Divine inspiration. He began randomly ticking the multiple-choice questions, using the scarce knowledge he had and relying on divine intervention. The pass mark was 70%; Christopher got 76%! Several months later, he passed with the highest mark in his class and is now a bonafide, professional diver!


Breathing heavily, Boukari Amibou knew death was nigh. A gun was pointed at his forehead, poised to fire. Armed Libyan militia surrounded him, discussing how they would dispose of his body. Mr Amibou was defenceless save for a ‘weapon’ his captors knew nothing about!



Abducted and bundled into a remote Libyan jungle, it appeared the last had been heard of Mr Boukari Amibou, a businessman from Benin Republic. After a short argument, the moment of execution had arrived. From point-blank range, his assassin shot. Nothing happened; the gun did not fire. Mr Amibou clutched the Anointing Sticker hanging around his neck, a gift he had received from a friend before travelling to Libya. Furious, the gunman took aim once more and fired. Nothing! Checking the gun, the man was perplexed. Turning it to his own head, he tried once more. This time, it worked. Rushing to the bloodied body of their compatriot, confusion reigned in the camp of his captors. Throwing aside their guns and brandishing knives, they decided to finish the job. However, each attempt to penetrate his flesh was met with an almost stony resistance. No knife, sword or machete could pierce his skin.

Seeing that Mr Amibou was clutching the Anointing Sticker from The SCOAN around his neck, they realised its role in his protection and tried to remove it. One eventually managed to cut the lanyard that held it around his neck but as the sticker fell to the ground, so did the man. Gathering courage, Mr Boukari picked up his Anointing Sticker on the ground, declaring to his captors that they must release him. Several days later, he was a free man!

Deciding to leave Libya by road, his car got stuck in the midst of the desert. Placing the Anointing Sticker on the car engine, it miraculously revived, enabling him to finally leave Libyan shores. His next destination – The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations in Lagos – to share his mind-boggling testimony!

DADDYThe sermon of the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua at the Sunday Service on October 19, 2014 centered on this very symbolic subject. Having variously affirmed his adoration for the Biblical concept of truth, the man of God laid emphasis on this central Christian principle. Addressing the usually receptive and inspired congregation, the man of God stated that: “It is only truth that can see us through. Even our Lord, Jesus Christ cannot do anything against the truth because He, Himself is truth. He is the Creator of Heaven and earth. He has no beginning; He has no end. You have a beginning and you have an end. Stop fighting the truth because truth does not lose the battle; God does not lose battles”.

Speaking further, the man of God said that the Word of God is the only acceptable standard for understanding the truth. CROWD]While admonishing the congregation to strive to make the Word of God a part of their lives, he also posited that it is only by so doing that they can be set free: “Knowing facts about Jesus cannot change your relationship with Him. If you want to know the truth, go to your Bible. Make the Bible your standard because only that can set you free. Take time to splash around in the Word, to absorb it, to imbibe it and to gather it in. It must be an integral part of your being”.

Amplifying further the invaluable power in the Word of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua highlighted the far-reaching impact it can make on the lives of Christians who make it an integral part of their lives: “His Word has healing power, converting power and a purifying power. The Word can keep one from error and sin. If you say your heart is troubled, His Word rejoices the heart; it gladdens the heart. His Word is so profitable. His Word is so enduring”. In his famous style of backing up his sermons with Biblical Scriptures for the sake of expressing their practicality and applicability in today’s Christian living, the man of God drew the attention of the now engrossed congregation to the words of Jesus Christ Himself concerning the healing power of the Word in John 15:3 – “You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you”.

WM RACINEEarlier on that Sunday, Wise Man Racine enlightened the congregation with a spiritually uplifting message titled, HOLD ON TO GOD. The Wise Man’s message made an immediate spiritual impact as it related the prevailing universal crises to the doors of everyone’s particular experience. According to him, “Life is a battlefield and there are many battles to be won”. He also stressed that Christians must not forget to testify to God’s goodness, kindness and mercy each time He gives us victory in any battle.
He went further to exhort the congregation to always see God as their greatest source by giving all glory unto Him, observing that man is incapable of achieving anything without God on his side: “The best man in the world holds his integrity no longer than God upholds him in it. The best man in the world can only maintain his position and honour as long as God keeps him in it.”
He emphasized that we should always hold on to God, knowing that “beyond earthly sorrow is the joy of Heaven”. Adding that we should live in the fear of the Lord more than the fear of man, he concluded that this precept “should be the guiding principle behind every Christian’s faith”.

healing1After praying for the sick and afflicted at The SCOAN Prayer Line, the man of God led the congregation and viewers around the world in a powerful time of mass prayer. Everything that was commanded on earth was commanded in Heaven as prison doors were opened and chains were loosed. Every religious spirit, spirit of doubt, unbelief, error and heresy was commanded out, in the name of Jesus Christ. healing2
As they prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua, the congregation released themselves from every ancestral spirit and spirit of their forefathers that had tormented them. They confessed freedom and victory in Christ Jesus, knowing that the truth had won the battle.
Next, the Anointing Water was ministered on all present, being used as a medium to sanctify and purify their spirits, souls and bodies for the service of the Lord.

Different nations across the world joined worshippers last Sunday to worship God and glorify His Holy name as they dadtuned in to Emmanuel TV.

Bubbling with enthusiasm, the children of God sang melodious songs of praises and worship as they joined the Emmanuel Singers in a divinely charged atmosphere.

The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave a thought-provoking message that put believers on their spiritual toes.crowd

“If you pray and you never hear from God, it does not mean that God is powerless – it means your relationship with God fails to prove that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. If you pray to God and don’t hear His voice saying, ‘Yes’ or ‘No’, it does not mean God is not alive. He is alive but your relationship with Him fails to prove that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. He is the same God who rescued Daniel, Meshack, Shahealing4drack and Abed-Nego’. Once again he challenged us to reflect inward on our relationship with God.

Later, the man of God mhealing3oved among the worshippers who were eager to hear from God and touched many lives through prophecies. The congregants witnessed a lot of revelations from which many bondages were broken and evil yokes were lifted from shoulders.

The day’s prayer line session which followed was also memorable to the glory of God as the man of God, by the power of the Holy Spirit, saw to the deliverance and healing of those afflicted, including those who threw away their crutches and walked out of their wheel chairs.

Speaking on the topic: JESUS CHRIST KNOWS YOUR SITUATION, Wise Man Daniel uplifted the faith of the wm danielsurging worshippers through a down-to-earth message of God’s unflinching love and care for His people whom He would never fail to uphold by His Word. The Wise Man enjoined the worshippers not be controlled by their situation and always see the saving grace of God’s presence. His words:

“What is your situation? As a Christian, don’t grumble, murmur or rebel because God is aware. What you are complaining about may be to preserve you for the purpose which God created you for. Remember, seeing what God says will produce and increase your faith. And when it is time for God’s purpose to be fulfilled in your life, there will be a driving force that will change your action and location. Don’t forget that many toil very hard and pray fervently, but the duty of God is to determine the time and season of harvest. Therefore, leave your situation for God because He knows. And because He knows, He will never leave you without solution. As Christians, as long as the world is in place in our lives, Christ will be displaced. As long as self-confidence is in place in our hearts, the confidence born of God will be displaced. Jesus Christ is a democrat- He does not impose His Will on anyone. He allows us to exhaust whatever worldly advantages we feel we have so that, when we have learnt lessons, we would value Him.”

healing1The day also witnessed prayer for the nations, reaching out to a troubled world conducted by Prophet T.B. Joshua, who afterwards encouraged the congregation that due to the distractions in this world, the only way to maintain breakthrough is by meditation.  “I mediate on the Word day and night. Whatever I do prospers.”

healing2Not to leave any room for satan to manipulate, the new Anointing Water was also administered on all present to ensure that no one escaped the anointing of God.

It was a glorious day, the name of the Lord was magnified, Praise the Lord.

The biblical truth that God inhabits His people and would never forsake His own was clearly evident and exemplified in the last Sunday service at The SCOAN. Heaven literally came down and the glory of God filled the souls of worshipers as they worshipped Him in the beauty of His holiness.

The entire worshippers were spiritually electrified with the splendour of God’s power and faithfulness. His enduring mercy, goodness and grace ran through the whole day’s colourful service.

An array of soul searching, spiritually uplifting songs of praise and worship by Emmanuel singers which touched the hearts of the entire congregation set the tune for the rest of the day’s service.

The mPROPHET T.B. JOSHUAan of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua inspired the souls of the congregants with his incisive and powerful message titled, ‘You Have To Experience God’. The message, which opened the spiritual eyes and hearts of worshippers, became a platform for critical self evaluation of individual’s Christian life with sober reflection as could be seen in the profound calmness that encapsulated the worshippers. The man of God, without mincing words, emphatically stated that until one experiences God, there can be no satisfaction in one’s life. He said that satisfaction in life was not about money or other worldly possessions but about truly experiencing God.

‘’Until you experience God, there will be dissatisfaction in your life – a sense of hunger to know what life is all about, a desire to know what happens after life is over,’’ he said, adding that these are the thoughts that continue to disturb unbelievers.

According to the man of God, age has nothing to do with death as one could be called at a young, middle or old age. However, this remains a big puzzle to those who have not experienced God by their wondering of when, how and what type of death would meet them. He clarified that when one truly experienced God, one would have answers to these questions. ‘’Those who are born of God: believers, born again, born from above long to be there. This is how you know you are born again,’’ he stated.

Figuratively describing this earth as a market, Prophet T.B. Joshua said, “No matter how long you spend in the market, no matter the profits you gain, you cannot sleep there – you have to come back home. It is not a comfortable place to sleep, no matter how beautiful, profitable or good that market is, you must come home; the market is no man’s land.’’

Shedding more spiritual illumination to the worshippers, he continued, “We know where we belong, where faith will be turned to sight. We say we walk by faith but there, faith will be turned to sight. Faith is expecting Jesus to do what He promised. Here, we close our eyes; over there, we open them in the world of glory.’’

Like a bombshell to the congregation whom he had previously enjoined to truly worship God in Spirit, Prophet T.B. Joshua again posited: “When you are worried over when, how and what will happen after this life is over, know that your relationship with God is questionable. Those who have a good relationship with God long to be there just as those who maintain their relationship with God also long to be with Him. Many of them always ask, “When am I going there? When will that be?” But for others, this is a place they don’t want to leave because they don’t know what will happen next. The desire to know what happens after this life is over – that is the thought in the hearts of those who have nowhere to go.’’

On the necessity of adversities in human life, the Prophet raised the worshippers’ understanding to know that “tests and trials are meant for our belief”, noting that “when an issue remains unchangeable, there is nothing we can do.” However, God will not do anything without first revealing it to His servants, he clarified. “The evidence of God in the life of a prophet, a minister of God, is acting with Him, knowing God’s opinion about himself and others. When you act with God, you will know God’s opinion about yourself and others,” he explained.

To further educate people, Prophet T.B. Joshua explained that anybody could gather a crowd, have branches or the largest church all over the world but not anyone could stand a trial without the help of God. He continued, “What the crowd is mostly looking for is outward gifts but to keep this crowd in terms of tribulation, trials and tests, it takes God.” He concluded, “You do not need God to bring a crowd together but to keep them when trials come, God must be involved.’’

After finishing his message, the man of God moved around and prophesied to the lives of many people in which the fundamental problems affecting them were revealed with such identified yokes broken by the power of the Holy Ghost in the name of Jesus Christ.

The man of God also attended to hundreds of afflicted on the Prayer Line. It was a powerful time of healing and deliverance from diverse afflictions in the lives of those that received prayer. They were all set free from their satanic bondages.

WISEMAN CHRISTOPHEREarlier, Wise Man Christopher had aroused the spiritual appetites of the congregants with his short but deeply spiritually provocative message, titled, ‘The Way To The Kingdom Of God.’  Speaking from John 14:6 as his proof text, Wise Man Christopher quoted the Lord’s Words: ‘’I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”.

“Here, Jesus Christ tells us that He is the Beginning, Middle and End. To get to the Kingdom of God, we must follow the way of the Cross. The way of the Cross is the way to the Kingdom of God,” he began.

He said the way to the Kingdom of God is not without its challenges. According to him, it is full of hatred, thorns, snakes, scorpions, persecution, intimidation, blackmail, slanderous remarks, campaigns of calumny, name-calling, among many other unpleasant experiences. He further stated that “the highway to the Kingdom of God starts on this side of death and the entrance is very easy to find. It is right in front of you, in the Word of God.”

He said the good news is that Jesus died for our sin and broke the power of death by His resurrection, adding that whoever calls on the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, with faith in God’s Word, shall be saved.

“So, keep the Word of God in your mouth, meditate on it day and night and do what the Word says, for this is not only the process of believing but also the way to the Kingdom of God. God is building Himself and His Kingdom into us, making Himself and His Kingdom a part of us as His Word dominates, rules and sanctifies our spirit natures. This shows that God and His Kingdom are within us in the Living Word,” he enjoined the worshippers.

The service came to an end with the mass prayer conducted by the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. It was another moment of commotion in the kingdom of darkness as all hidden demonic problems were also x-rayed and flushed out as they manifested.

CROWDAll the congregants also received the touch of the Anointing Water in order to ensure that no one went back with his or her problem. It was a marvellous day as the name of the Lord was glorified.

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



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

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

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

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



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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



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

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

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

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



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



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



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

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

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

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

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



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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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