DADDYWhat a splendid and glorious occasion it was for the multitudes that congregated at The SCOAN on Sunday! From the heavenly songs of glorious adoration that soothed broken souls and prepared the way for the anointing of the Holy Ghost, to the power-packed sermons, the beauty of the Lord was irresistible. It did not matter either whether one was worshipping through Emmanuel TV as millions of viewers do worldwide or using online mediums; the touch of our Lord, Jesus Christ, was unmistakable. As the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua launched a chain-smashing prayer against the kingdom of darkness, people could be seen vomiting blood and other poisonous substances the devil had deposited in them to breed sicknesses, disappointments, failures and other vices in their lives. They were declared free of their afflictions, in the name of the Healer and Deliverer, Jesus Christ.

The man of God also mounted the pulpit and delivered a powerful message that brought edification and comfort as people discovered the missing piece to successful and lasting relationships. Titled: NO PERFECT RELATIONSHIP, he urged all to exercise forgiveness at all times, saying, “There is no perfect relationship. Where I am weak, you are strong”.

 

Aided by scriptures from Romans 15:1-4 and Galatians 6-1, Prophet T.B. Joshua reproved the spirit of self-righteousness, saying such a relationship cannot last.

 

He explained: “The word ‘relationship’ means cooperation where people involved benefit or gain. What are we benefiting and what are we gaining? If one is weak in one area, he might be strong in another area. This means, we have our strengths and our weaknesses. We must recognise this in each other. Wife, you must recognise the weakness in your husband and his strength – the area of his strength and weakness. So also, you husband. We must recognise this for our relationship to endure and last.”

 

He added: “This is the secret of my humility. I know you deserve my respect and I also deserve your respect. If I first see you, I should first say, ‘Good morning’. That is what life is all about. Not, I see you but because I am a man of God, I don’t say, ‘Good morning’ and wait to see whether you will greet me or not. I know you deserve my respect, my honour and I too, deserve your respect and your honour. It is not one-sided. That is what relationship is all about. If you reject one because of his weakness, you also reject his strength. If you know your friend’s weakness, help him instead of rejecting him because a person who is a thorn in your flesh today may be your helper tomorrow.”

 
WM DANIELEarlier, Wise Man Daniel preached a life-transforming message titled, ‘God is Interested in Genuine Believers’. He encouraged everyone to be genuine believers and not the kind to whom Jesus Christ is the Lord only when the times are good – when there is money in your pocket. He declared that by His resurrection, Jesus Christ demonstrated that He is worthy of being the object of our faith and belief.

 

“It is never too late to start believing and obeying God’s Word. If we realise that our capacity to believe is not enough, we can offer prayers for faith and Jesus Christ will enlarge our spiritual coasts,” he said.

 

 

TESTIMONIES

Many people came out to testify to the glory of God of what He had accomplished in their lives. Below are a selected few of the wonderful testimonies. Be blessed as you read and do not forget that your testimony is just around the corner:

 

WASTE TURNED TO WEALTH

Life for Mr and Mrs Makgoba from South Africa was a complete contradiction. They were in a waste management business. Contracts were hard to come by and yet, MR & MRS MAKGOBA FROM SA (AW)even when they finally got one, they could not execute it. Firstly, they were not given the go ahead to start the contract for two years. Each time they tried to follow up on the contract, they would be told to wait. Secondly, they did not even have the waste management trucks needed to start the contract. Stuck between a wall and a hard place, Mr Makgoba decided to come to The SCOAN and seek the face of God. They prayed and received the Anointing Water and Anointing Stickers. Back home, they ministered the Anointing Water and prayed together as a family and within a short period of time, God blessed them. From one truck, they raised money and soon, they were able to acquire 13 brand new trucks with which they were able to carry out the contract. Their business has boomed and they are now employers of scores of people. A couple that was staying in a small two-bedroom apartment now have their own palatial building tastefully furnished on a large expanse of land apart from another 8.5 hectares of land already purchased for business purposes, after they had prayed and ministered the Anointing Water. It was a miraculous turnaround in their lives. They advised everyone to wait upon the Lord because God’s time is the best.

 

SAVED FROM BEING CRUSHED TO DEATH

That Mr Duru Ferdinand from Anambra, Nigeria is alive today, is not an ordinary miracle. It is an exceptional rescue by God’s power and one which has to be celebrated with thanksgivings to God; hence, he came to give the glory back to Him through this wonderful testimony, explaining how his life was miraculously saved from a fatal car accident. He was travelling in a public bus one day and following behind them, MR DURU FERDINAND FROM ANAMBRA (AW)was a very big truck. The brakes of the truck behind them failed, resulting in the truck crashing into their vehicle and crushing to death everyone travelling with him in the vehicle. Miraculously, only Mr Duru and a young boy sitting next to him were spared. Before he entered the ill-fated vehicle, he had prayed and ministered the Anointing Water on himself! He said that in those few seconds of near-death, all he noted was that his body was covered in diesel fuel. And to his horror, while he was still stuck in the wreck, he saw a flame of fire starting. He remembered his Anointing Water and with faith, he sprayed it on the fire and it was immediately quenched. Astoundingly, he was also able to sneak out of the wrecked vehicle and when the rescue workers arrived on the scene, they were amazed at how he had escaped alive. The young boy who was seated next to him in the vehicle also survived but had to be cut out of the wreck by the rescue services. Mr Ferdinand gave glory to God for giving him another chance at life. Thank You, Jesus!

 

 

CURSE OF HIV/AIDS BROKEN

Mr Matome Jonathan Mohale from South Africa sat patiently yet anxiously in the doctor’s office, waiting for the results of his blood test to be read out to him and when the doctor did, he had a shock of his life. He had tested positive to MR MATOMEHIV/AIDS 1 and 2.He was devastated, knowing that there was no medical cure to the disease. Given chance, he would have preferred to die than to continue living with the virus and watch himself edge to the grave. He desperately wanted to reverse the time back and avoid all the wrongs that had landed him in the predicament but it is never possible. The symptoms that had forced him to undergo the tests such as headaches, running stomach, dizziness and weaknesses, became worse and he was rushed to hospital. Unable to eat, he found himself on the sickbed, dependent on drips day and night.

 

A few months after his diagnosis, a friend encouraged him to visit The SCOAN. He was not too sure of this, questioning whether it was really possible for one to be cured of such a deadly ailment. He decided to give it a shot and, by faith, he arrived at The SCOAN. That was two years ago in 2012. Placed at the prayer line, Wise Man Harry prayed for him in Jesus’ name and he instantly felt relief. He later received counselling that restored his battered state of mind and was advised to stop blaming himself and instead receive total forgiveness from Jesus. On his return to South Africa, he was determined to live a new life in Christ and abstain from sexual sin; he began to change his pattern of living. He started to develop his relationship with God by reading his Bible every day. A few months later, he went for a blood test and to his profound joy, he was confirmed HIV/AIDS negative. He went to another government approved laboratory where they conducted advanced tests and he was also tested to be negative for HIV/ AIDS.

 

The doctors were surprised how this could be possible. They even asked him if he had visited spiritualists. He told them of his encounter with the Master Healer and Creator of all, Jesus Christ. He admitted his unfaithfulness to his wife and advised all men to remain faithful to their wives and not look for love elsewhere.

 

A final encouragement was for all not to despair or feel despondent but to put their hope in God who is able to reverse every disease and sickness, no matter how fatal.

 

 

I DERIVED JOY TO SEE MEN IN PAIN

Miss Christy Hangula from Namibia was living her life and growing up just like any innocent girl until she was seven years old when the devil hit. From nowhere, she just found herself masturbating. As she grew up, she could masturbate three times in an hour. This spirit of lust destroyed her affection for men. Each time she masturbated by crossing her legs a certain way, it would physically feel as if she was with a man.MISS CHRISTY FROM NAMIBIA [LUCIFER FACEBOOK]

Aspiring to be a model in her teenage years, she opened Facebook accounts on the internet where she marketed herself to potential clients and accepted an offer from a man claiming to be an Indian who said that he could give her an opportunity to be an international model. The man asked her to pose for him via webcam on Skype and do different poses for him in revealing clothes. As she stripped for him, she felt as if something had entered her and she started to receive evil powers and knowledge on how to seduce men. She started seducing men physically and by placing seductive pictures of hers on her Facebook account. She was on a mission to seduce and destroy men. She especially targeted those not interested in her. After seducing them, she would walk out of the relationships just to break their hearts. The evil powers in her eyes were a point of contact for the evil spirit and she could read the minds of her victims before even talking to them.

 

Thank God, she came to The SCOAN last week and received her deliverance from the evil spirit that tormented her. During her deliverance at the SCOAN prayer line, the evil spirit that was in her cried out and identified itself as an agent of lucifer. It also confessed to having been responsible for the wrong things she had done and that it was on a mission to destroy youth. Testifying to the congregation, she warned young women against falling into the trap of accepting offers from strangers on Facebook and other social media sites offering to pay for everything, including travel tickets and accommodation. She warned women that such people were trapping young ladies into posing for pornographic pictures. After her deliverance, she says she now feels free from the spirit of lust and no longer hates men. Having received the Faith Bracelet from the man of God, she is rapidly building her relationship with God each time she prays with it; Jesus Christ is now her best friend.

 

 

FIBROIDS FLUSHED OUT AFTER A FAITH BRACELET TOUCH

Mrs Ene Adeka, a civil servant from Benue, Nigeria was privileged to receive the Faith Bracelet when she visited The SCOAN during the period of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s 51st birthday in June. When the man of God gave her the Faith MRS ENE ADEKA [FAITH BRECALET]Bracelet, he spoke prophetically that the anointing would break every yoke in her life, including any fibroids. She claimed the prophecy by faith and began praying with the Faith Bracelet, believing that the blood of Jesus Christ would flush out every sickness from her system. She noticed that each time her arm with the Faith Bracelet touched her body, she would start shaking. Moments later, she desperately needed to go to the bathroom. On reaching there, what came out was a large mass of blood. It was shortly followed by two more large clots of blood. Instantly feeling relief from the pain and discomfort, she praised God and immediately photographed the flushed out fibroid for evidence in her testimony. Convinced beyond all doubts that she was healed, she returned to the hospital. A test was conducted and confirmed that she was truly free from all fibroids.

 

She encouraged all that self-deliverance is possible. Her son Ode Joshua Adeka who accompanied her for the testimony also received his deliverance on praying with the Faith Bracelet. He was delivered from stubbornness, nightmares and an evil spirit inhabiting his life. His mother testified that even before the Faith Bracelet touched him, he had begun to manifest. He is now a new person entirely. Her advice was simple: All you need to do is believe and meditate on Jesus Christ and His sufficiency while using the Faith Bracelet.

 

CONFESSION OF SCOAN VISIT IMPOSTERS

A couple from Zambia living in Swaziland made a shocking confession on Sunday. Faced with financial challenges, they tried to extort money from people desperate to visit The SCOAN. They placed an advert in the local newspaper advertising that they could facilitate visits to The SCOAN at a registration fee of $100 USD per person. When people started calling them asking whether they were official SCOAN group leaders, they would say they were, whereas The SCOAN was not aware of their activities. The SCOAN does not charge people for visiting the church. However, their ill-conceived idea to dupe people backfired. After placing the advert in the newspaper, their problems became worse and they had to start selling their property to make ends meet. They were even duped by a con man for the first time in their life after placing the fraudulent advert. One day, a man called and warned them to stop their dubious activities and they had to switch off their mobile phones. They confessed their wrong doing and asked God and the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua to forgive them. They advised people that they should be careful not to fall into the hands of fraudsters masquerading as official group leaders of The SCOAN. He said, “Those indulging in such fraudulent activities should refrain immediately because you cannot hide from the Holy Spirit.”

 

The service closed with the ministration of the New Anointing Water by the evangelists during which many were liberated from demonic forces.

ImageTrue Christianity lies in the heart! This was the heart of the message the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, dwelled on when he ministered to the masses that congregated at The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria and viewers of Emmanuel TV, last Sunday. Prophet T.B. Joshua came out early on Sunday to open the service with a thought-provoking message.  Drawing his message from the book of James 1: 1-5,22 and Psalms 66:18, the man of God said that unless Christians begin to act, live and do the Word, they are deceiving themselves. Prophet T.B. Joshua’s message was titled: The Futility Of Self-Effort. He said that those who are inwardly pure show themselves to be under the power of pure and without the Holy Spirit destroying the root of sin in us, we are bound to be tormented by the desire to return to our bad habits. We must lift up to God not only clean hands but a pure heart.

“We are made in our heart to be like Jesus. On the last day, we will be judged not by the colour of our skin, but by the content of our character. True Christianity lies in the heart. It lies in the purity of the heart. The mind is renewed by studying the Word and by acting upon it. One may read or study the Bible for years, if he or she does not act it, live it, is not a doer, the mind is not renewed. The mind is renewed by studying the Word and by acting upon it. Christ and the Word are one. Meditation in the Word is a visit to Him. The Word becomes a part of us by meditation,” he said.

Zeroing in on the day’s message, he said the problem with Christians today is that they use self-effort to stop their bad habits. As a result, said the man of God, their proclamations as Christians or being born again, are in vain because they continue to suffer urges of the bad habits they confess to have stopped.

“God’s effort is grace. When you stop your bad habit with self-effort, you cannot stop the urge, but God’s effort can. Many become Christians, born-again, pastors, bishops, prophets with self-effort. Self-effort leaves us with urge. That, which comes out of the heart, defiles the mind. Self-effort is a wrong attitude toward sin. Without the Holy Spirit destroying the root of sin in us, we are bound to be tormented by our desire to return to our bad habits. The challenge many Christians, believers, pastors and the rest are facing, is the problem of urge behind closed doors – urge to continue many bad habits,” he said.

After the message, the congregation listened to the case of a family who had been prophesied to the previous week by Prophet T.B. Joshua. Below is a summary of their intriguing story.

 

 

 

CONSULTATION WITH A SPIRITUAL MIRROR

 

Mr Alfred Etugbo from Delta State, Nigeria came out in response to a prophecy he had received the previous week from Prophet T.B. Joshua. The man of God had asked him about his wife and told him to bring her and his family.

He said that he was facing extreme setback in his business and challenges in his marriage. A friend then took him to a spiritualist who introduced him to a spiritual mirror. He was told that the mirror would show him the cause of his problems. The friend had lost his goods and they went to the mirror to find out where they were and what had happened. As a result of looking at the mirror, his friend went mental and it was only after the spiritualist did some incantations that he seemed to regain himself.

Mr Alfred was curious and decided to go back to the spiritual mirror and ask why his friend had become mad. He would ask a question to the mirror in his mind and then the mirror would answer by showing him images. The mirror showed him that his friend was the one who took his own goods and that the whole event was a ploy. He became infatuated with the spiritual mirror and kept on going there for consultation.Image

He had to drink a concoction and pay money before he could look at the spiritual mirror each time. He then decided to ask the spiritual mirror what happened to his car as his car had gone missing. The spiritual mirror revealed that it was his close relations that were involved in stealing the car. The spiritual mirror also showed him how his wife, sister and others were the cause of his problems. This led him to accuse his wife, his sister and a girl staying with them in the house to be involved in witchcraft.

The spiritual mirror even showed him how his sister had stolen his blessings by carrying his daughter and bringing her to him to kiss him. When he asked the mirror why he was experiencing delay in his job, the mirror revealed that his sister was the cause.

The conviction that he had concerning his wife and sister led him to behave strangely towards them in the house such as going on his knees and begging them to release him from his bondage. This he did under the instruction of the spiritual mirror. The spiritual mirror would reveal to him everything he needed to do.

He realised though that although the mirror would show him the problem, it would never provide a solution for him. That led him to look for a solution in various places. He found out about Emmanuel TV and eventually came to The SCOAN.

Prophet T.B. Joshua addressed the matter saying that the spiritual mirror was telling nothing but falsehood and that his wife, sister and the girl were not involved in witchcraft and were not the cause of his problems. He said that the whole family needed deliverance and that forgiveness comes with deliverance. He further stated that there was depression in the house but everything would be over after their deliverance.

Mrs Stella Etugbo told a little of her side of the story. She said that she had never believed in the spiritual mirror. She had bought cars for her husband and had been financially supporting the family since she met him. There was nothing that she did not do for him. She was surprised that at the end of the day, he called her a witch.

Prophet T.B. Joshua corrected her saying that it was not her husband who was calling her a witch but satan and that the whole blame should be placed on satan.

The man of God then prophesied to the congregation and declared people free from their various afflictions in the name of Jesus Christ after which he ministered mass prayer. This was followed by the Prayer Line and Testimonies galore which glorified God; a few of which are below: 

 

 

 

EMMANUEL TV PARTNER REAPS GOD’S FAVOURS!

 Image

When Dr Akhiwu Benjamin, an Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon, and his wife Helen, a Pediatric doctor, decided to become partners of Emmanuel TV five years ago, it was simply to support God’s projects. Little did they know that they were actually sowing a seed whose fruit would amaze and shock even the most hard-core believers.

They came to testify to the goodness of God in their lives saying, since they joined as Emmanuel TV Partners, they have enjoyed abundant blessings both spiritually and physically. Dr Benjamin said being an Emmanuel TV Partner has given him an atmosphere of peace, protection, contentment and living in abundance.

He said that as a result, his family has found itself under the cover of God where all their needs and protection are guaranteed. He said his career and that of his wife, have enjoyed growth while the performance of their children at school has been astronomical.

Dr Benjamin, who lives in Kano, gave one of his many experiences where God has saved his life from imminent death. One day, he said, he had travelled to another state. On his way back, as he drove his Jeep in a convoy of other private cars, he saw masked men appear from the roadside bushes brandishing guns. They started shooting at all vehicles. While bullet-holes appeared on other cars, none appeared to have hit his vehicle and yet, the armed men were shooting directly at him from a short distance. He had anointed his car with the Anointing Water that morning and it had a shield of five Anointing Stickers all over it!

He said that the Anointing Water was also in the car and that at the time of the attack, he was listening to a sermon from Prophet T.B. Joshua titled: Leave It For God. A force from nowhere forced him out of the car and told him to run away. As he ran from the car, the gunmen kept firing after him but, incredibly, none of the bullets hit him. As he entered the bush, he ran into a beehive but it was as if the bees were confused and could not sting him.

 “It was as if I was in a bottle. Instead of attacking me, the bees were fleeing away,” said Dr Benjamin. After two hours, he came out of the bush and found the police guarding his car, having ambushed the armed robbers. The other people that were left on the road had been injured and the other vehicles were damaged. The police were astounded that not a single bullet had hit his car and that he was safe and sound. They asked which native doctor he had visited to receive such protection. He stuck his hand into his pocket and showed them the Anointing Sticker and Anointing Water. He told them that it was the power of God working through the Anointing Stickers and Anointing Water that had miraculously saved his life!

“I thank God for this opportunity to be a member of this ministry and to be a partner of Emmanuel TV,” he said.

NOW ALCOHOL’S ENEMY NO 1!

 

Satan will use any bad habit, however innocent it may look, to destroy you in more than one aspect of your life. This was Miss Busisiwe Mgqibi’s message when she came to testify at The SCOAN on Sunday.

The South African mother-of-two said the problem of drunkenness which pestered her for 15 years, affected her finances, career, marital life, had almost cost her life. Born in a family where consuming alcohol was ‘normal’, Miss Mgqibi was already taking hard alcohol at age 16 and, she said, it was as a result of partying that she dropped out from university after failing

her examinations due to lack of concentration.Image

“I had to find a job quickly to earn money for my drinking sprees. I liked expensive beer. As a result of clubbing, I could not settle and commit to one man. This led me into many different relationships which has left me with two children from different fathers,” she said.

Soon, she discovered she could no longer finance her drinking and she started to take loans from individuals and institutions to sustain her sprees. Meanwhile, she had no time for her children and she would sleep out over weekends. She tried to stop but couldn’t. One day, her landlord threatened to throw her out due to non-payment of rentals. She visited a friend from whom she frequently borrowed money. Instead of giving her cash, she gave her a small bottle half-full with clear water.

“She told me it was Anointing Water from The SCOAN and that she was giving it to me as a gift to solve my problems,” she said.

She prayed and ministered it in Jesus’ name, asking God to break the terrible addiction to alcohol in her life.

“I have forgotten to drink alcohol for the past nine months. I now have peace and joy. I am able to provide for my children and I have a fiancé. I now hate beer,” she said.

Not only is she now free from the addiction to drinking alcohol but her menstruation that had been irregular for years also started flowing normally. Her advice was: “Commit yourself to God in prayer and faith and He will answer you. If you have Emmanuel TV, you are half-way there.”

 

DOUBLE BLESSING & BREAKTHROUGH

 Image

Mary Jane Moepeng from Botswana had been looking for admission to university for eight years since she finished school. She was not being accepted into any university she applied to, let alone being able to pay the required fees. When she came to The SCOAN, she met with Prophet T.B. Joshua. The moment she stepped into the man of God’s office, he told her that he saw that she wanted to go to school and gave her US$800 with the instruction to look for the best university in her country and use the money to pay for the registration fees.

He also gave her Anointing Water which she ministered on her admission documents and the documents she submitted to the government for scholarship. To her greatest surprise, she not only gained admission to one of the best universities in Botswana, she also received a scholarship from the government covering all her tuition fees. She explained that it was the first time the government had granted scholarships to people in her age-range; she was 26. She brought the admission letter and also her report with her results from her first year of studying Business Enterprises, showing that she received distinctions. Her testimony did not end there; she said that she and her husband had been trying to have a child for the past year. After returning from The SCOAN and ministering the Anointing Water in the name of Jesus Christ, they met as husband and wife and she got pregnant. The couple showed their baby boy named David to the glory of God!

GOD HEALED MY LEG ULCER – “EVERY PROBLEM HAS AN EXPIRY DATE”

 

ImageImageImage

 

Mrs Joy Kalu testified to her healing from a leg ulcer which was healed through the medium of the Anointing Water. She had severely suffered the affliction for five years during which her life turned upside down. She could not go to work or take good care of her children. She would spend the whole day at home, hopeless. Her husband was also very stressed as he had to take care of her. She came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water. She ministered it on her leg and also gave it to her nurse to minister it on her. Before she knew it, her leg started to dry up and new flesh started forming. Within no time, the fresh skin had covered where the ghastly wound once was.

“I am happy, overjoyed and excited! There is no longer any pain; I can do everything now!” She said and showed for all to see, the scarred area where the ulcer once was. Her advice was simple: “Believe the words of God’s prophets and you will be blessed and healed; every problem you have has an expiry date!”

GOD’S GIFT OF HEALING

 

Mrs James from Akwa-Ibom, Nigeria and her daughter, Godsgift came to testify to her healing from a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease she suffered for 15 years. Godsgift had been suffering from this sickness since birth. She had asthma attacks all the time. Mrs James would often be called from her office to collect her daughter from school due to the severity of the asthma attacks. Godsgift would come and ask, “Mummy, why is my case like this? Why am I not like everyone else?” They took her to teaching hospitals and private hospitals but the only help the doctors could render was for her to use a nebulizer (breathing machine).

She watched Emmanuel TV and her faith was lifted up. That prompted her to bring Godsgift to The SCOAN where she received prayer from one of the wise men.Image

After the prayer, she can now breathe normally and even recently played football in a competition. She no longer needs to use the nebulizer. Her medical reports showing the doctor’s diagnosis before and after the healing were shown. Truly, the Great Physician, Jesus Christ is alive.

 

 

GOD DELIVERED ME THE WAY HE DID THE ISRAELITES

 

Mrs Tshepo Olefhile from Botswana was working hard but did not have anything to show for it. “I would work as an elephant but eat as an ant,” she said. At the end of the month, she would get very stressed as she never had enough money to pay her bills. She had a poultry farm but at the end of the month, things would always go wrong with the business. Things got so bad that she had to sell her car. She came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water, ministered it, in Jesus’ name and prayed saying, “Since You used Moses to deliver the Israelites from Egypt, you can use Prophet T.B. Joshua to set me free and bless me.” After ministering the Anointing Water, she received financial breakthrough, her business turned around and with the turnover, she was able to purchase a car. She showed the picture of her new car.Image

Mrs Olefhile shared a second testimony concerning her daughter. She had applied to universities in Botswana to study medicine but was rejected as she was not qualified. However, Mrs Olefhile prayed in faith, believing that God would do the impossible. It happened according to her faith and her daughter received admission from one of the best universities in China to study medicine. Although her tuition fee was US$10,000 she told her daughter not to worry, that God would help them raise the money in time. She was able to raise the money through the power of God in the Anointing Water. Her daughter will now be travelling to China to start her course in medicine.

The service on Sunday ended with the Mass Prayer conducted by the Wise Men. We at The SCOAN, thank God for His everlasting faithfulness and power. He continues to manifest through His anointed ministers of God!

Emmanuel! God With Us!

The Sunday service was not only spiritually inspiring but also turned out to be an historical event when Prophet T.B. Joshua was decorated with the prestigious award of Ambassador of Peace by the Arewa Youth Forum, an umbrella body for youth organizations in Northern Nigeria. It started with the Prayer Line where people of all walks of life from all over the world, were prayed for by the wise men. Healing and deliverance, in Jesus’ name took place and everyone felt the touch of the power of the Holy Spirit. Scores of people came with their faith-inspiring testimonies although not all had the chance to express their amazement at the works of God, due to time constraints. The testimonies demonstrated how the great power of God is working through the mediums of Anointing Water, Emmanuel TV, the Men of God and Anointing Stickers.

The man of God Prophet T.B. Joshua prophetically taught about love, saying there are two loves: The kind of love that sees beyond hatred, the love that sees beyond intimidation and the love that sees beyond rejection. “When you are rejected, you love. When you love, you will not want to see your neighbour on the street, dying for food. Love first because God is love. You cannot heal if you don’t love. If you don’t love, you will likely heal your friend and leave your enemy. When you don’t love, you cannot be given the grace to deliver people from trouble. You will likely deliver your friend and leave your enemy to die,” he preached. He ended by advising his listeners that, “Only love can take you to where you are going”.

T.B. JOSHUA RECEIVES AMBASSADOR OF PEACE AWARD
Prior to his message, the Prophet accepted the award which was presented to him by the delegation of the Executive Members of the Arewa Youth Forum which was led by its president Alhaji Gambo I. Gujungu and included senior representatives from all states in the region. AREWA 2

National Director of Public Affairs, Arewa Youth Forum, Benue, Nigeria, Bello Abdulhamid, said they came to The SCOAN because of love which the man of God has always demonstrated irrespective of barriers of race, religion, creed or ethnicity. Speaking on behalf of the northern states of Nigeria, he said that Kaduna, Yobe, Plateau, Kano and Jigawa States are all beneficiaries of the trailers of rice that Prophet T.B. Joshua sends.
He said, “Prophet T.B. Joshua is a man with phenomenal vision. He shows a deep sense of compassion and unconditional love. Prophet T.B. Joshua is a blessing not only to us in Nigeria but also the international community. Prophet T.B. Joshua is the very first man of God that we are visiting and honouring. Our independent assessment has shown that The SCOAN has been committed to provide not only for the spiritual but also for the physical wellbeing of people”.
AREWA 1
Addressing his nation, he said, “Fellow Nigerians, we are here because of the love we see in the life of Prophet T.B. Joshua. We need love to come together as a nation. Where there is love, there is no killing, stealing or destruction. Where there is love, there is no segregation. Love is the solution to our problems in Nigeria”.
The National President of the Arewa Youth Forum, Alhaji Ibrahim Gambo, said that they have picked Prophet T.B. Joshua as a leader to bring back the lost love in Nigeria.
Isa Kurgui, the National Vice President, North-Central, Arewa Youth Forum said that in a society where there is love, you can sleep without locking your door, you can go anywhere without fear. He concluded by saying that from that day henceforth, Prophet T.B. Joshua was the Grand Patron of Northern Nigerian Youths.

The congregation rose to their feet clapping as Prophet T.B. Joshua was presented with the award as Philanthropist Par Excellence Ambassador of Peace.

Standing side by side with them, the Prophet explained to the world his reason for accepting this award during the live service. He said, “I will receive this award in order to join them to bring peace to some troubled spots in our nation, Nigeria”.

EVANGELIST BILL SUBRITZKY FROM DOVE MINISTRIES, NEW ZEALAND VISITS THE SCOAN

EVANG

Bill Subritzky, a renowned healing and deliverance evangelist in his eighties from Dove ministries, New Zealand came to acknowledge the goodness of God through the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua. Evangelist Subritzky told the congregation and viewers worldwide that he had travelled to many countries and had many crusades but when he saw what was happening at The SCOAN, he was astounded.

Joshua prayed for him, he saw a radical transformation in his ministry and has since then being spreading the good news of the mighty power of God working through the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua.

FROM GRASS TO GRACE

Have you ever gone for an interview where the interviewer ended up answering questions for you? Well, it just happened to Mr Ukeme Essien, a well qualified technician in oil processing from Nigeria, thanks to the power of Jesus Christ through the medium of the Anointing Water.

Mr Essien had no permanent job and for six years after his training in the field, found himself moving around aimlessly and teaching in secondary schools, earning a meager salary of N8,000. The money was not even enough to cover his transport costs.

ESSIEN+

One day, he came to The SCOAN, received the Anointing Water and ministered it in prayer in Jesus’ name. The following morning, he received a call from an overseas oil company he had previously been courting but to no success, saying that they wanted to see him for an interview in the United Arab Emirates. About 35 people were invited from all over the world for this interview and he was one of only two Africans to have been invited.
“They covered all my expenses including air tickets and visa costs,” Mr Essien told the congregation.

At the interview, while waiting for his name to be called, he excused himself to the restroom where he prayed and ministered the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name. He prayed to God that he be asked no questions whose answer he did not know and that if any such questions came, they be answered for him.

When he entered the interview room, the whole panel started to smile at him and, behold, he knew all the answers. The only question he did not prepare for was when one of the directors asked why he wanted a job with the company, a question they answered for him as they hired him and made him a Field Services Foreman for the Abu Dhabi-based oil film earning millions and with an entitlement to a new car every two years.

Mr Essien concluded by saying, “Today, I have realized that Jesus is indeed alive and he has worked in my life through this medium of the Anointing Water.”

KIDNEY STONES DISSOLVED
Mr Obi Patrick Chinedu from Nigeria was short of words to express his awe at the miraculous healing he received from God through the medium of the Anointing Water he received at The SCOAN three years previously.

OBI
A small-scale businessman in his home-town, Mr Chinedu had suddenly found himself under an affliction of a strange disease that came with general body pains, a swollen leg and hypertension. People started to speculate that he was actually suffering from HIV/AIDS and was hiding the truth. They started to avoid him but that was not his only nightmare; he started to dream about being chased by giant men, masquerades, lions and other frightful creatures.

It was after some years that a thorough diagnosis at a government hospital established that he had kidney stones. It was then that his friends and neighbors started to suggest that he travelled to The SCOAN, here in Lagos, to seek God’s healing touch. He was reluctant because, according to him, he had been one of the people in his area that used to spread negative and false rumours about The Synagogue and Prophet T.B. Joshua.

But the pain in him was too excruciating to ignore that he decided to swallow his pride and visit the very place he had castigated. He came to SCOAN in 2010 after over nine years of suffering and patronizing shrines in search of a miracle. He was one of the many visitors that were prayed for. He also had the privileged of receiving the Anointing Water. When he got home, he prayed with it and ministered some in his mouth, in Jesus’ name.
For the first time in ten years, he had a peaceful and nightmare-free night. He started to notice changes in his body. The pain disappeared; he was able to eat well and started to walk around without support.

“That morning I finished my breakfast and asked people to prepare for me something real to eat. They could not believe it,” he said.

A few weeks later, Mr Chinedu decided to go back to the same hospital for a test. To the doctor’s greatest surprise, the test showed that he no longer had any kidney stones. At last, free from his affliction, he was back to his feet – a healthy and strong man.
“My advice; do not attack what you do not understand. I am stupefied because I received God’s healings in the name Jesus Christ from the same servant of God I had ridiculed for many years. Good thing is that my healing has changed the perception of people in my area about the SCOAN. Thank you Jesus!” He said, with an encouraging word to people to get their own Anointing Water for use in Jesus’ name.

PROMOTION AFTER 22 YEARS
Imagine working for 22 years without a promotion! As unimaginable as it may sound, this was the case with Mr Muzenge Hachizibe from Copperbelt, Zambia.
MUZENGA
Mr Hachizibe had worked for the Ministry of Home Affairs in his home country for all those years as a criminal investigator at the rank of a sergeant but with no recognition for all his contributions.

New recruits would join his department and he would train them, only to see them pass him by to higher ranks. Such stagnation, he said, was humiliating to him and his family.
“They would be given better salaries and bigger official houses. It brought shame on my family,” he said.

In desperation, he went to many places in search of solution, including witch doctors but there was no answer to his lack of promotion.
Finally, he came across Emmanuel TV where he saw God work through Prophet T.B. Joshua and the wise men, in Jesus’ name. He was so convinced that his solution was at The SCOAN that he secured a bank loan of US$2,000 to come to The SCOAN.

He arrived at the church, obtained the Anointing Water and returned home to pray and minister it in Jesus’ name. One month later, he received a promotion!
He is now a Detective Inspector with the Zambian Police. He brought his promotion letter to The SCOAN to share his testimony with the children of God.
“It does not work to look for solution in places other than Jesus Christ,” he said.

“GOD, THIS IS TOO MUCH!”

The Almighty God, indeed, has no limits to His goodness in people’s lives. The Bible is crystal clear as it states that all gold and silver belong to Him. Maria Teressa Mbani Modo, originally from Equatorial Guinea but now staying in Spain, had always been aware of this piece of Scripture but never at any point in her life did she ever imagine how far God would go to bless His people.MARIA

She visited The SCOAN a few years ago with the problem of poverty and lack of progress in life. She received the Anointing Water and went back to Spain where she prayed and ministered it in Jesus’ name. Immediately after that, she received a promotion at her work place to deputy manager of a Swiss-owned transit company and a salary increase!

She came back to The SCOAN to testify to the goodness of God in her life and during her stay, received a call from her bank that a loan she had applied for had finally been approved.
“I could not believe it,” she said, in tears of joy.

She came back to The SCOAN a third time to give her testimony as an acknowledgement of God for His faithfulness while nursing an ambition to buy a house in Spain.
Just after arriving at The SCOAN, her estate agent called her from Spain that there was a newly-built house with a swimming pool available and selling at a reduced price. She was overjoyed since she was not even looking for a new house but just a normal house.
That was how Miss Modo became an owner of a spacious apartment with a swimming pool to boot in the beautiful costal province of Valencia in Spain. And that was not it, with the money she was now earning in her new job, she was able to buy a bus for her mother as a substantial financial earner.

She exclaimed in front of the congregants: “God, this is too much!” At only 29 years old, God has blessed her so much through the medium of the Anointing Water that she is not only the owner of a new house now, but she has also opened her own company and has acquired a lot of land.

The 50th Birthday Anniversary celebration of Prophet T.B. Joshua has come and gone but the euphoria still lingers in the atmosphere. In line with his advice that the spirit of the celebration should be made manifest in a life devoted to prayer for the Church of God for a strong bond of love and rededicating ourselves to the acts of giving for the rest of our lives; the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua emerged on the podium looking apparently renewed. The congregation was no less renewed as was evident from the number of people that lined up to share extraordinary testimonies.   T .B .JOSHUA

In his brief message, Prophet T.B. Joshua reiterated his resolve to encourage job creation by entrepreneurs and organizations all over the world. In response to the numerous responses already received from across the globe, he said, we don’t need to ask whether a candidate belonged to this or that church. What matters is that they are human beings. If God give you job and you take God’s job, you must accept God and a sense of judgment will be the result; you will think right and judge right. You will have a desire to know what happens after this life is over. You will think about that if God gives you a job. The job offers will reduce crime and what is happening to the youth all over the world.

South African Gospel Singer Deborah Fraser was guest at The SCOAN Sunday Service where she performed two of her heart-rending hit-track songs to the high-spirited congregation who sang along and danced praising God.

Because of want of space, we are constrained to bring to you only a few of the testimonies of healing, deliverance and breakthroughs resulting from the use of the New Anointing Water, Anointing Sticker and praying with the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV.

GOD QUALIFIES THE UNQUALIFIED

 

1 Mariana Parkhotyuk

 

Mrs Mariana Parkhotyuk from the USA, was without a job until she visited The SCOAN during Prophet T.B. Joshua’s 49th birthday. She did not have the requisite qualifications for the job she had her eyes on. She was privileged to meet with the man of God who gave her the Anointing Water. When she returned to the USA she prayed and ministered the Anointing Water on herself and to her credentials and said to God, “God qualifies the unqualified”.  After her prayers, she applied for a job as a Clinical Specialist and was given the job.  The organization also sent her for on-the-job training which resulted in rapid promotion and new placement in her career. She not only has a bigger salary than she had ever received; she also got the chance to further her education through the job she was blessed with. She believes strongly that God used the medium of the Anointing Water to bring about more blessing and favour in her life.

 

 

SCHOLARSHIP GRANTED OUT OF NOWHERE

2 Bryson StillMr Bryson Still from Washington, USA, started a degree course in Education but was unable to get the finances to further his education. He had made several efforts towards raising the necessary funds but was unsuccessful. He was privileged to receive the Anointing Water and anointed himself with prayer believing for a breakthrough in the name of Jesus Christ. Shortly after, he received a call from the President of his college whom he never knew, offering him a scholarship to the tune of US $50,000 which covered his tuition and all other expenses. He now has a hope for a bright academic future to the glory of God.

 

 

HOPELESSNESS TURNED TO HAPPINESS

3 Lesego Mabote

 

Lesego Mabote from Botswana, told her moving story of how in her place of work, she had been painfully waiting for promotion for more than 10 years. In spite of her strong attachment to her job and the zeal to do her best, she was disappointingly demoted whereas her colleagues were being promoted.

 

This unusual trend of administrative injustice caused her depression and she gave up hope of ever being able to move upward in her career.

She resigned herself to working only for money for food and utilities and not expecting a better and brighter career future.

In search of solution to her problem she went to prayer houses but nothing positive came out of her being prayed for.

Coming from a background of idol worshipping family, she was obliged to go back home to find out what the matter was. She was told by spiritualists that if she did not keep up the practices of her forbears she would not expect any success or breakthrough in her career. This revelation blackened her horizon and she believed there was not a single chance of her coming out of her predicament.

As she however watched Emmanuel TV and saw the wonderful testimonies given by people who had similar situation as hers, she decided to come to The SCOAN and was privileged to receive the Anointing Water.

When she got home, she began to minister the Anointing Water every day in the name of Jesus, believing that her help could only come from the Almighty. She also prayed that God should rewrite her history of being bound to family tradition. The Son of God declared her free and she is free indeed.

Not long after, out of the blue, she received a call from her manager that she was due to be promoted to Supervisor of the office.

She is now proud to be occupying the position of a Supervisor in her office. Her depression and despair have been turned into joy.

DRY BONES SHALL RISE AGAIN!

Mrs Navone from Tanzania was not able to walk and was bound to a wheelchair for a long time. She arrived at The SCOAN on a wheelchair. She had to depend on her children to do everything for her and that situation of helplessness affected her psychologically and caused her serious depression. She had to stop going to work and would sit at home all day, desperate for relief.

She went to many hospitals and traditional healers but no solution could be found. As she watched Emmanuel TV and saw many testimonies of people with even greater problems than her own she received renewed hope. The faith that her own miracle was possible made her ask to be brought to The SCOAN even if it meant coming on a stretcher.

When she arrived at The SCOAN, she was seated at the canopy section within the overflow congregation. According to her, she was surprised as she saw her daughter crying for the man of God to help her, that her mother was sick. The man of God sent for her and people came and quickly wheeled her inside the church.4 Navone from Tanzania

The man of God, T.B. Joshua prayed for her, touched her and asked her to rise up, in Jesus’ name. Immediately, she got up and started walking without any pain. She can now carry out all her domestic chores without assistance from anyone!

Her daughter, Mary Mboya, also testified to the extraordinary healing which had taken place in the life of her mother. She explained how the constant care and attention the condition of her mother demanded, had become a burden to her. The journey from Tanzania to The SCOAN was not easy for them as they had to pass through several countries and the transfer from one aircraft or vehicle to another was tiring for both of them. Her mother would cry all night due to the pain in her legs.

Now, after the prayer, she sleeps peacefully. She no longer has to use a wheelchair and walks freely without any pain.

Their advice to the viewers and congregation was simple: Believe that Jesus Christ is the Healer and great Physician in this world.

After the testimony, Mrs Navone danced before the Lord with overflowing thankfulness in her heart. She was warmly embraced and

congratulated by the numerous attendees from all over the world who danced with her inside the church.

TB JoshuaThe Live Saturday and Sunday Services started like any other service in the past, but there was a huge package of surprises in the unfolding. True to The SCOAN culture, the service was inundated with interesting testimonies of healings, breakthroughs, mending of relationships and deliverance from demonic attacks. As can be seen from the accounts rendered hereon, the Anointing Water which is one medium God has so endowed the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua with to foster his ministry of healing and deliverance from evil influences has continued to bless people in every area of their needs. Encouraged by the great testimonies resulting from the use of the Anointing Water and the Anointing Stickers, Prophet T.B. Joshua decided to further bless the congregation, indeed the world with yet a new branded Anointing Water and a pair of Anointing Stickers with an improved booklet that explains the nitty-gritty and the origin of these blessed products. After a powerful and inspiring sermon delivered by Wise man Harry on the subject ‘No Neutral Source,’ Prophet T.B. Joshua addressed two major issues dealing with peoples’ misconception of appearances as opposed to true godliness. In summary he said that ‘Faith is of man’s spirit, not of his flesh or body’. Then, came the big surprise: Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke briefly of his upcoming 50th Birthday which falls on June 12. He said that God had inspired him to bless the people in a very special way to mark the occasion and he went ahead to distribute the new branded Anointing Water and a couple of beautiful Anointing Stickers freely to all. God Almighty and the heavenly hosts endorsed the release and confirmed that the prophet’s action was indeed ordered from above. This was evidenced by uncontrollable manifestations of people that came in contact with the Anointing Water and the Anointing Stickers even before ministering them. Indeed, God is still with us.
Sermon By Wise man Harry
Life is a warfare. In a warfare, there are many battles to fight.WISE MAN HARRY When you look at people today, you will see that some are battling with their bills, some with their sickness, while some are fighting to make it in life. It takes the grace of God to realize that the way you fight these battles determines who you are before God. Just as there are two sides to a coin, so also there are two sources in this world: God and satan. Whether you believe it or not, there is no neutral source because there is no neutral kingdom. You can become great in life, in terms of position, money and fame, but the source of your greatness will be either from God or satan. Genesis 14:14-16,21-23. This is all about Father Abraham and his determination to make God Almighty his only source.
To be great born of God is to derive your resources from God, while to be great born of satan is to derive your resources from satan.
When God is the source of your strength, no one can be against you. When God is the source of your strength, you and God are majority. Abram, with the help of God, was able to defeat his enemies and recover all the goods and set the captives free.

One thing we need to remember is that Satan’s greatest interest is to overthrow our relationship to God as a Father. To do that, satan always uses our situation. This is why we should not be misled by our situation. Our situation could be poverty or sickness. Outward affliction and poverty are the great arguments satan uses to disturb the children of God. Therefore, as children of God, it is better to live poorly on the fruits of God’s goodness than to live plentifully upon the products of our own sin. Remember that everything big starts little. If anything big starts big, it calls for concern. Those who fail to take these tiny steps cannot trust God and understand the basic truth about faith.
Testimonies:
CHRONIC CASE OF BEDWETTING HEALED
MR AWALLU GABOH -DELIVERED OF BEDWETTINGMr Awallu Gaboh, a muslim had the problem of bedwetting and frequent urination for twenty years. It all started when a spirit being possessed him, which came and made love to him. The problem had made it impossible for him to get married or visit friends. His relations and friends could not understand why he would not marry. He visited several herbalists in search of solution but to no avail. Then, a friend of his gave him the Anointing Water which he ministered on his male organ and all over his body. When the spiritual wife attempted to force herself on him, he noticed that a very powerful ray of light was covering him and preventing the lady from coming close to him. After many attempts, she gave up and left. Since then, he has been free from the chronic case of bedwetting of over 20 years. Being a muslim, he said it was the first time he had entered a church (The SCOAN) but as he saw the way Prophet T.B. Joshua had treated people from all religions, he felt welcomed. He said that Prophet T.B. Joshua was sent to everyone regardless of their religion. He also changed his mind concerning getting married, stating that it was now possible.
BARRENNESS AND ALCOHOLISM STOPPED
Mr Abu Abdulazeez from Benue State had been childless for many years after marriage. The medical report stated their diagnosis of bacterial infection but his wife often told him that a certain spiritual man used to sleep with her and make love to her in the dream. Mr. Abdulazeez who is a military personnel, had the problem of addiction to alcohol for thirty-one years and could drink more than three cartons of beer in a single day and toMR ABU ABDULAZEEZ & WIFE -BARRENNESS & ALCHOLISM STOPPED worsen his situation, he always spent time in the company of his colleagues who were also habitual drinkers. After each drinking spree, he would usually lose his cell phone and end up being helped home in a state of stupor. He had attempted to quit the habit on his own but could not. He was always late to work on account of the drunkenness. On one occasion, he sleep-walked into an unfamiliar bush due to the effect of alcohol until he was saved by a man who told him that he had travelled close to Kogi State very far away from Abuja, his planned destination. He was also in the habit of returning home late at nights. He had lost three of his cars due to accidents resulting from drunkenness. One fateful day, he visited a friend and joined them in watching Emmanuel TV. He was astonished to see cases of drunkenness being delivered through the prayer of the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. He joined in the prayer by placing his hand on the screen of the television. He invited his wife to place her hand on the television and she did. As soon as she placed her hand, she fell down and started manifesting. Soon after, his wife conceived. For himself, he tried to visit his former beer parlour where he ordered for a bottle of beer but it tasted of bitters and he had to spit it out. Since then, his addiction of 31 years stopped. Today, the wife is pregnant. Mr Abdulazeez does not visit beer parlours anymore and they now enjoy a very peaceful home.
YOUNG MAN DELIVERED FROM DEMONIC KINGDOM AND DISCONNECTED FROM SECRET CULTS
MR INNOCENT OLUCHI OCHIA -DELIVERED FROM SECRET CULTSMr Innocent Oluchi Chidozie Ochia – Imo State, Nigeria was an active member of some number of secret cults for many years. He is a graduate of Federal Polytechnic, Nekede in Imo State. He was an ardent church goer and a choir boy until one of his relations introduced him to various brands of drugs. They were into the music industry and those drugs were supposed to make him feel good and bold while on stage. Ironically, the influence of those drugs erased every passion for the things of God and he developed apathy to Christian music. He could consume large doses of those drugs every day and had to spend much of his pocket money in acquiring them. On one occasion, he had concealed himself behind the counter of a bar, smoking his weed and playing music very loud. Three beings appeared to him right there and one of them said that it could pick up his thoughts. He did not believe the being, and spoke in silence to test him. The beings responded correspondingly to prove that they could actually read his mind. They told him that they could discern that he wanted to be famous and that they could help him get to the top of his career. He asked to be helped. One of the beings stripped off and to his surprise, he saw that it was tattooed from the neck to the groin region. They started an initiation process and were making noises as if in a sex orgy. He could not stand the sight any longer and decided to walk away. He was threatened with premature death in four days if he walked out on them. He, however, tried to submit to the initiation. Back at the Polytechnic, his life took a different form. He could hear voices and interpret lyrics that he never was part of their making. He became fearless. He had no money but could get just whatever he wanted so long as he was dressed in a peculiar spiritual fashion that those beings had recommended. When he sang on stage and off-stage, he could hold people in trance and those who were unable to stand the situation had to run away. The drug addiction got so bad that he had to be sent to rehab. His academic career started diminishing. He never prayed and refused to pay his tithes any longer. He preferred to do his chores on the Sabbath day instead. He hated the things of God. Incidentally, he was invited to The SCOAN to witness the testimony of one of his aunts who had been delivered from demonic influence. He felt very uncomfortable in the church and would rather have some cigarettes and alcohol. During prayer by Wise man Daniel, he was arrested and felt the separation from the spiritual beings that had tormented him. The pain he felt on his leg also disappeared after he was touched and prayed for by the wise man. He advises the youths in particular that if they would make Heaven, they should avoid worldly affections such as smoking, doing drugs, drinking and lustfulness – telling them that Jesus Christ was not a womanizer or a drug addict.
He now enjoys reading the Bible and is eager to receive the Word of God that will inspire him.

SON OF A POPULAR NOLLYWOOD ACTRESS AND MUSICIAN DELIVERED FROM DEMONIC KINGDOM
Mr Samuel Freedom is the son of Camilla, a renowned Nollywood actress. He said he came to The SCOAN after his mother had been delivered of evil attacks and connection to the marine kingdom. He says that in a prophecy given to her by Prophet T.B. Joshua, his mother was asked where her son was. She responded that he was in Enugu and the man of God said he should be brought to The SCOAN. Previously, he had been practicing house to houseMR SAMUEL FREEDOM -SON OF NOLLYWOOD ACTRESS evangelism and praying for the sick with signs following, though he had never been delivered himself. He confessed that during that period, he had an affair with a lady from the same church where he worshipped. Thereafter, his spiritual life took a downward turn. He experienced some career failure and stagnation. Nothing was working for him; he became depressed and often heard a voice telling him to commit suicide. He began looking for alternatives; he started listening to worldly music and doing street dance. He formed a dance group and they wanted to create new moves. They researched online and found different demonic signs which they formulated into dance moves. He would have dreams where demons would teach him dance steps. He would then in turn teach others how to dance in that way. He wanted to get money; so, he searched on the internet and found the Illuminati website; he read everything on the website and saw the face of the master of the Illuminati. His first experience was an encounter with the master in a dream. The master appeared in the form of a serpent and then later transformed into a human being, giving him instructions. Thereafter, he started using some of those signs that represented Illuminati in dance steps on stage, but participants never got to know that those dance steps were glorifying demons and initiating them into the kingdom of darkness. The more the people adopted the dance steps, the more they were tormented by demons. He had a shirt with the Illuminati insignia, which he usually wore especially on stage. He had a computer game known as Prince of Persia which he always played during the day. At night, he would see himself as the character from the video game, the Prince of Persia, flying, fighting and doing everything the character in the game was doing. He was in the habit of masturbating even though he detested the act and would regret it later.
He eventually came to The SCOAN and was delivered after prayer from Wise Man Christopher. He no longer has the urge to masturbate, smoke or drink. He advised parents to keep objects of bad moral influence away from their children. He advised youth not to download worldly music on their phones. His advice to pastors was to run to God for mercy for He is a merciful God.

which he became sick. He went from one place to another in search of a solution to his sickness which doctors were unable to diagnose. Later, he returned to being a pastor, though he acknowledged that he did so without being delivered. Consequently, he experienced setback in his ministry. He said that the church would grow and then later scatter. He would also hear voices rebuking him, telling him he was never going to make it and that the church was going down. He came to The SCOAN where he was prayed for by one of the wise men and received his deliverance. He said after his deliverance, he no longer heard negative voices and also the pain he had in his body was gone.
NOLLYWOOD ACTRESS WENT THROUGH THOROUGH SCREENING
Mrs Camilla, a Senior Nollywood Actress for 29 years said she didn’t have a hand in how, where and when she was born. She decided who she wanted to be when she came to The SCOAN. Many of her colleagues had discouraged her from coming to The SCOAN. She said, “Many of them are scared of coming to be screened by the Holy Ghost”. According to the actress, she was delivered at The SCOAN and also received a prophecy concerning her son. She brought him to The SCOAN together with her brother (Pastor Philip Onyekachukwu) for deliverance. She said she came for God to change her spiritual occasion from sin to holiness and she got it. She encouraged all to seek the face of God.
THE TRUTH ABOUT TATTOOS REVEALED
JOHN BOSCO TATTOO MANJohn Bosco from Cameroon gave a testimony of how he had a tooth problem and a woman had advised him to apply snuff tobacco as a solution to the problem. The effect of the tobacco made him feel high in spirit. He became addicted to it and eventually became very sick and lost a lot of weight. He was diagnosed with tuberculosis and gastric ulcer and reached rock bottom in life. One night, he had a dream whereby he saw the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua in his dream who prayed for him. Soon after the dream, he had a full recovery from his sicknesses and was restored back to his original self. To add to his blessing, he was also offered a good job from an offshore company with good pay and his life experienced a dramatic turnaround for the better. He was so overjoyed at the healing and blessing he received that he asked himself what he could do to

say, “Thank you”. He then called a tattoo artist and asked him to design a tattoo for him written, “Jesus Is Lord, T.B. Joshua My Prophet”. He had the tattoo inscribed across his shoulder. As he developed interest in studying the Scriptures, he came to a portion in the Book of Leviticus 19:28, which spoke against the act of putting marks of any sort on the body and immediately regretted doing the tattoo. He was so disturbed in his mind that he sent an email to the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua asking what he could do. The prophet then invited him to The SCOAN.
After sharing his experience, the man of God addressed the issue. “Just see it as one of those things on your body, not for God. If you see it like that, press forwards to serve God in Spirit and in truth. Don’t see it as a way of pleasing God. Don’t let it disturb you anymore. Put it behind you. Since you can’t remove it, leave it and continue to serve God.”
Prophet T.B. Joshua further said, “Faith is of man’s spirit, not of his flesh or body”. He advised the man that he should see the tattoo as something for his body and not for God. He said now that he had realized it was wrong, he should put it behind him and seek God. He said the tattoo had no meaning to God and is not to please God. He also advised Christians who already had tattoos and wanted to remove them, not to have them surgically removed as this was a trap of satan, which could lead to other skin complications. He concluded by saying that when we worship God in Spirit and truth, whatever we have put on our body is nullified.
MODIFY YOUR CULTURE TO SUIT CHRIST’S IDEOLOGY
DEACON DANIIEL EMOGHAWEI & WIFEDeacon Daniel Emoghawei came to The SCOAN and received a prophecy. Prophet T.B. Joshua asked him about his wife and had spoken concerning the conflict at home and the spirit of anger. Today, Deacon Daniel Emoghawei came back together with his wife to confirm the prophecy. He explained that the cause of most conflicts in the house was regarding his wife’s clothing and makeup. As a deacon, he didn’t like to see his wife with revealing clothes and heavy makeup. He further told the prophet that even on their wedding day, they had fought concerning the same matter. Apart from that, according to the husband, the wife had the spirit of anger that caused her to argue and get angry unnecessarily. His wife also spoke, complaining that they would always quarrel and never agree on anything in the house. She further said that her husband would beat her and this had heightened the tension in the marriage.
Listening to their story, Prophet T.B. Joshua expressed his belief from God’s point of view that God is Spirit and that those who want to worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and truth. Therefore, for God to hear, help or answer us, we must talk to Him in Spirit but the problem people have is that many have not been dealing with God in Spirit but in the natural.
Prophet T.B. Joshua explained that there was nothing wrong in putting on makeup but that our ideology and culture must be modified to suit Christ’s ideology. He added that if someone has the spirit of lust, whether he or she applies makeup or not does not make any difference because it is a spiritual matter and can only be resolved through being delivered.
He asked them what their position was concerning the marriage. They both said that they still loved each other as husband and wife but just wanted the conflict in their marriage to stop. Prophet T.B. Joshua encouraged the couple that there could be no understanding without misunderstanding. He said that if you ask any successful couple today about their experiences, they would tell you that they passed through the shadow of death before they arrived at a successful marriage. T.B. Joshua concluded by advising, “There is a time to fight and there is a time to embrace each other. No matter what happens, God has something to say, even in a broken situation. Therefore, we should always ask for God’s opinion concerning all things”.
The new brand of Anointing Water was officially launched. People were falling under the anointing of God upon receiving the new Anointing Water and Stickers. Inspired by the Spirit of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave out The New Anointing Water and Stickers for free to the congregation both inside and outside the auditorium as his 50th Birthday gift and in dedication to the blessed memory of his mother on the occasion of this year’s Mothers Day celebration.
The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave the grace for the congregation to receive the rebranded Anointing Water and Stickers for the first time after their official launch today. Excitement and shouts of joy rented the atmosphere as the long-awaited release was announced by the prophet. As soon as the Anointing Water and Stickers were given out freely to the congregation, people began to shake, roll on the floor and vomit out dangerous substances that had been lodged in their system, under the power of God. They hadn’t even opened the packaging before Jesus Christ began to work in their situation. Mrs Towoju from Kwara State, Nigeria was among many who after merely receiving the New Anointing Water and Sticker received a miracle. She came out to testify that God healed her of a stroke after merely collecting a bottle of the Anointing Water along with the Anointing Sticker. Glory be to God!
Ifeoma had suffered serious headaches but immediately the Anointing Water and Sticker were given to her, just by merely touching the packaging, caused her to fall under the anointing of God and receive her healing. Upon getting up from the floor, she realized that God had performed the miracle. No more headaches!

The Saturday and Sunday Live services on Emmanuel TV were as exciting to the viewers worldwide as they were for the congregation thronging the seats of The SCOAN Headquarters. Starting with a dynamic prayer line service, the five Wise Men went forth cloaked in the light of God’s purity and the fire of His Holiness to dispel every shade of darkness in the life of the congregation. Whether the darkness appeared in the form of sickness, disease, demonic oppression, poverty, setback, limitation and failure, when the light of God came on the scene, darkness had no hiding place. Just as it was during the earthly ministry of our Lord, Jesus Christ, everyone who received a touch from the Wise Men received a touch from Heaven with the anointing to break every yoke.

THE ROAD TO YOUR DIVINE DESTINY

WISEMAN HARRY
Wise Man Harry preached an encouraging sermon titled: The Road To Your Divine Destiny In which he exhorted the listeners to look unto Jesus Christ in times of testing to see them through their dark moments into the bright futures set before them in Christ Jesus. He said, “The road to your divine destiny is not a bed of roses. There will be trials, temptations and challenges. Joseph believed his dream. To protect our dreams, we must stop the language or the vocabulary of the victim. Before Joseph got to the position of honour, he suffered humiliation, rejection, embarrassment, temptation, false accusation, and so on. For you to be in a position of honour, you must experience the same thing. On the road to your divine destiny, you need a vision to stay on the right track. As a man of vision, no matter what constitutes the obstacles on your way, you can never be stopped.”

FAITH COMES THROUGH THE WORD

PROPHET T B JOSHUA
Prophet T.B. Joshua enlightened the congregation and viewers on how they could ‘bring Jesus onto the scene’ in his message titled, ‘Faith Comes Through The Word’. Mark 16:17, “In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues.” This Scripture is useless, baseless, until we act on it. Acting on the Word, brings Jesus on the scene. If you do not act on the Word, God is impotent in you. It is acting on the Word that builds faith in the believer. Jesus Christ preached the Word, healed the sick and broke the power of demons over men. Apostles preached the Word, the sick were healed and multitudes were recreated. To preach the Word means to preach Christ because Christ is the Word. John 15:16 “Whatever you ask the father in my name, I will do.” It’s not every time we say, in the name of Jesus we bring Jesus on the scene. Only faith pleases Jesus. Only faith brings Jesus on the scene. On the scene, means here, now. In our gathering here, if Jesus is involved, healing, deliverance takes place. By looking into the Word and acting on it, we bring Jesus on the scene.

TESTIMONIES GALORE!


Hundreds came forward eager to share the good news of what God Almighty had done in their lives through different mediums of the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua, including the Anointing Water, Anointing Sticker, Emmanuel TV and those who had received prayer and prophecy from the man of God and the wise men. Here are some of the highlights:

 

JOBLESS WOMAN GETS PRIVATE JET RIDE TO BIG TIME EMPLOYMENT IN ABU DHABI

Mrs Carine Virgine
A Cameroonian Health and Safety Officer in Dubai, Mrs Carine Virgine testified how distance was not a barrier to the real, authentic and forceful power of God. Despite all her qualifications, she was unable to secure employment. There were just four days left for her visa to expire and she would either be imprisoned or be forcefully repatriated to Nigeria according to the law in Dubai. She watched Emmanuel TV on the internet in Dubai and while praying with Prophet T.B. Joshua during the viewer’s prayer, she vomited out thick substances. A friend then came to visit her who had just left The SCOAN and gave her a bottle of the Anointing Water, telling her that if she believed, she would have her testimony within the next four days. She immediately ministered the Anointing Water. MRS. CARINE VIRGINE {CAMEROONIAN HEALTH & SAFETY OFFICER IN DUBAI}
The next day, a call came to her from a man who said her CV was before him and he had no questions for her other than if she was satisfied with the terms of the job she had applied for. He forwarded her CV to the Human Resources Department and she was invited for an interview. She was told to check her email box and discovered that a private jet was waiting to take her to Abu Dhabi, the Administrative Capital of the United Arab Emirates for the interview! She took the flight and committed the interview into the hands of God and the manager of the company even received her at the airport. To her further surprise, there was no interview at the end of the day. The interview was merely to show her round her new accommodation including a swimming pool, gym and restaurant on site! She is now appointed as the Health and Safety Officer of The Anatara Group Hotel Franchise, one of the biggest hotel chains in The Middle East. Her advice simply encouraged us all to truly believe in God and our prayers would be answered.

DEADLY FAMILY CURSE OF DIABETES SHATTERED THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

MR. IGNATIUS OCHIBA {DIABETES}

Mr Ignatius Ochiba

To some, diabetes has become a normal way of life. It is just something they have to put up with. But in the Ochiba family, diabetes was a silent killer. After two of Mr Ignatius Ochiba’s brothers had died of diabetes, his family was shaken at the stunning news that he had himself been diagnosed as a diabetic. Instantly, his health fell into decline, perpetuated by weakness, pain and fatigue in addition to sleeplessness and restlessness caused by the frequent urination accompanying the sickness. On being diagnosed with the same killer disease of diabetes, Mr Ignatius Ochiba decided immediately to come to The SCOAN where he received the Anointing Water. He gathered his family together. They prayed and he ministered the Anointing Water to the entire family, himself included. He went for a routine check up and was awaiting the results. He received a call from the doctor congratulating him and inviting him to the hospital. They showed him that his fasting blood sugar range had come back to normal level indicating that he was free from diabetes. Previously, he urinated frequently both day and night as a result of the diabetes but since ministering the Anointing Water, he slept soundly without any disturbance or rushing to the bathroom. The family curse of diabetes which had claimed the lives of two of his brothers came to a sudden end as God Almighty used the Anointing Water to break every chain of sickness the devil had used to connect this family to himself. He advised all that they should not allow their situation to mislead them because man’s condition does not change God’s position.

MOTORCYCLE DEALER’S ENTIRE STOCK PURCHASED AFTER MINISTERING ANOINTING WATER


MR.AZUKA MORAH {A MOTORCYCLE DEALER}

Mr Azuka Morah

This motorcycle dealer was down on his luck to say the least. His business was steadily going downhill until there was a terrorist attack in his state. After the bomb blast in his area, his shaky business became drastically worse. After going through the tension of securing a loan from his bank, putting up his house as collateral, he was further frustrated to the point where his loan even expired and his bank manager turned his back on him. After the loan expired, he still could not sell his products, occasionally selling a single bike in two weeks. He could not even pay his children’s school fees and his house was endangered for the now expired loans he had taken.  In the midst of his situation, a nephew encouraged him to come to The SCOAN to receive the Anointing Water. In faith, he came and received. He returned to his warehouse that was so full you could not even enter it and took photos as he knew his testimony was restored. In no time, a company he used to do business with bought all the motorcycles to the tune of 30,000,000 naira. He has settled the bank and has reclaimed his building – he is no longer a debtor and business is still going fine. He now has peace and can sleep well. His children who had to stop their education due to the problem the family was facing, are even schooling abroad now! Advising all and sundry, he said we should trust in the God of Heaven and His Son, Jesus Christ for all we need to live for Him here and now.

DENNIS SAMUELS – DIRECTOR GENERAL FOR A COMPUTER COMPANY

Dennis Samuels

From the time he became a partner of Emmanuel TV, he had been praying for the grace to be a committed one. He was among a few of the privileged who received an Emmanuel TV badge. A prayer partner was also assigned to him – one of the wise men. Each time he had an issue, the wise man would pray with him and counsel him over the phone. In January, 2012, his company received an invitation for a big exhibition in Burkina Faso. He managed to raise funds with his entire staff and set off for his j

ourney to the exhibition. When at the airport, his phone rang. It was his prayer partner, the wise man. He asked him where he was going and Mr Samuels explained that his company was elected to be a part of a big exhibition in Burkina Faso. The wise man counselled him and advised him to go ahead, that God would go with him. In accordance with the words of the wise man, Mr Samuels’ company was the star of the three day competition in Burkina Faso, as God favoured his company. Everything happened as the wise man had told him and he was given an award for ‘The Best Hope In Computer Security’. DENNIS SAMUEL {EMMANUEL TV PARTNERSHIP -DIRECTOR GENERAL FOR A COMPUTER COMPANY}

In a subsequent phone call from his prayer partner, the wise man, asked him, “When last did you check your blood pressure?” He said, “Please, can you go and check it and call me back”. Mr Samuels said that he went to the nearest clinic to test his BP. He was shocked when the doctor  who had asked him to wait came back with a perplexed look on his face asking Mr Samuels how he had come, that his BP was not only high but at the crisis level! The doctor advised him against driving and wanted to hospitalize him. Mr Samuels called his prayer partner who told him that that was the reason he had called him. His prayer partner then proceeded to pray with him and within a week Mr Samuels’ BP was back to normal.

He advised that to be a partner of Emmanuel TV was not about having a partnership number, “You need commitment. God is monitoring your activity. Be consistent and sincere in what you are doing. God is the rewarder of all things!”

MAN MADE A MILLIONNAIRE MOMENTS AFTER A MIRACLE

Mr Harrison Ugboh
He and his wife were separated. He got a call from his mother that his wife was in The SCOAN. He laughed over it because he did not believe in The SCOAN. His wife called later saying she wanted to see him at the church. So he came. Wise Man Daniel touched him during the service and that was all he could remember of his deliverance. He used to go to a river to fetch water as a child. He went, caught a fish and went to eat it. That was the River Ethiope. He noticed a fair lady sitting at the riverbank that day. He noticed cowries on the riverbed where she was, bent and picked them up. A similar fair lady came in his dreams and demanded for her cowries back.MR. HARRISON UGBOH {DELIVERANCE TESTIMONY--SPIRITUAL WIFE} He was a teenager then and in fear, he awoke, ran out of the house and threw them away. The spirit of the River Ethiope appeared to him the next day in a dream and said that she owned him. Since then, she came in his dreams and he started having serious wet dreams. He would see her physically and if she wanted to come, she came with a cold presence and no matter what he was doing, he would have to look up and they would make love. His parents started suspecting him of being possessed and once found him on the floor crying and shouting where nobody else was.

This spiritual wife affected his life by addicting him to chatting with girls on the internet and giving him the spirit of lust to womanize. His career and business were also destroyed by the malicious spirit. One such instance occurred when a lady came to his travelling business and paid 300,000 towards travelling to the United Kingdom. As the money entered his account, his business folded up over the following weeks. Each time he was about to get somewhere in a business, the spiritual wife would come into his dreams and tell him that that business was dead. Every time the spiritual wife killed a business, she would give another idea for businesses which would immediately catch on until the evil spirit again would crush the business.

The spiritual wife was extremely jealous of him and any woman who came near to him, would face immediately attacks. There was a terrible case where a girl who stayed with him during his school times, started bleeding in her brain which stopped immediately she moved out from the same house as him. The spiritual wife then led to separation from his wife.

So, when he came to The SCOAN and was delivered through Wise Man Daniel, life changed entirely. The affection for his wife was fully restored and he had peace as the spiritual wife and wet dreams then became a thing of the past. While he was still at The SCOAN for a week, he got a call that he should come back to his state for an urgent parcel. The man of God said he should attend to it and when he did, he found that it was a document which he had not applied for but offering him a contract with AGIP oil company to the tune of $200,000 which was an equivalent of 38,000,000 naira. That was not the only breakthrough he received. He was also able to join partners to his company who landed a massive project for the three of them to supply over 100 million units of their oil product of which the proceeds would be shared between the three of them at the rate of 1 naira per unit! His advice was to encourage parents to be conscious of their little children and not to allow them to pick things up off the floor and that people should not wait for their case to get as bad as his, come to a living Church where the Holy Ghost was in control, Jesus Christ is waiting to receive them.

MISS SEEAFAHU OKORO

Miss Seeafahu Okoro
The man of God replayed a video of a prophecy he had given to a woman the previous week where he asked her who Lawson was. The prophecy had revealed that she went to Europe where she did prostitution. After showing the video, the woman who was present in the service said that the man the prophecy concerned, Lawson, was introduced to her by her sister. He had promised to take her to Europe to work in a bar and wash plates. So, they went to a herbalist to make a covenant by taking hair from her private parts, armpits and blood from her forehead that she would have to pay him 50,000 euro after she started working in Europe, to which she agreed. MISS SEEAFAHU OKORO {DADDY'S PROPHECY--WHO IS LAWSON}The man then slept with her before taking her to the airport to travel. When she got to Europe, she was surprised that the man gave her some sexy clothes and told her to work on the street as a prostitute. She was taken by 6 men on the first night and from there, slept with between 40 and 50 men every day over the next two years before she finally paid the money. She fell mysteriously sick and the hospital told her that her kidney was damaged and needed to be removed before it affected the other kidney and could become fatal. She had to undergo surgery and was left with only one kidney. She was repatriated to Nigeria when she cried out to her embassy and returned to Nigeria with nothing. She came to The SCOAN and received the word of prophecy that delivered her from this past life of pain and disgrace. The man of God said it was a lesson to many, that it is not where you are but what you are. “No continent can change you if you are not ready to change.” He said.

FEMALE CULT LEADER DELIVERED FROM THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS

MRS.AMAKA AMACHUKWU {FEMALE CULT LEADER-DELIVERANCE TESTIMONY}

Mrs Amaka
She started by asking for forgiveness from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, stating she had blasphemed and said so many bad things, spreading rumours against T.B. Joshua and his ministry with the intention of destroying him and his ministry. “Every evil thing you could think of, I said it against him” she said.When she was young, she craved power. A spirit entered her and she saw herself always on top. When she went to university, she joined a female cult where she became the ‘number one’ in that cult. She took girls on the campus for initiation. She used to take the girls to a forest under the pretense that they were going to a party. She had a hundred powers she collected from a witch doctor and said “The more you looked at me, the less you would see me”. Once she raised her hand and said something, people would abide by whatever she said. She would consult a herbalist who would clear the coast for her any time her cult planned to do an initiation in the forest. The code was that they would wear a black bra. They would tie their eyes and she would bring the prepared concoction. She would bring out a razor and force the girls to take an oath during the initiation to take their blood. She would put the blood in the concoction and tell them to drink it which would make them high. After the initiation, the power would tell them the evil things they should do.

She said the day she started spreading a film blaspheming T.B. Joshua, that was the day things turned against her. She left school and got married but the curse on her life remained. A friend told her about the testimonies on Emmanuel TV. She went home and had a dream about T.B. Joshua, in which the man of God told her she should ask God for forgiveness, that she had sinned against the Holy Ghost. She began watching Emmanuel TV after which she came to The SCOAN and received her deliverance through the Wise Man. She said she encountered Jesus that day through the prayer of the Wise Man. She stated there was no gain in joining secret cults.

MTN PROJECT FAME STAR DELIVERED AT THE SCOAN

DENISE {DELIVERANCE TESTIMONY}Denise
Denise, a 28 years old who was brought up in the USA said she never knew that the devil had so much control over her life until she was set free at The SCOAN.

Her mother was a drug addict – at two months old, her mother gave her to her aunt in America who was unable to have children at the time. When her aunt had her own biological child, then she started maltreating her. The authorities heard of it and locked up her aunt. Later, her aunt decided to send her back to her mother but at this time, Denise did not know that the woman she had grown up with was her aunt and not her mother. She was deceived that she was going to Chicago to stay with her favourite uncle but found herself in Freetown, Sierra Leone. After this, she was to board a flight to Liberia, unbeknown to her, to meet with her mother for the first time. When she was about to arrive, they said there was a war on in Liberia and they could not enter the country at that time. Then she was taken care of by the flight hostesses until there was a ceasefire and they could enter.

Another lady saw her when she was crying in the airplane and started talking to her about Liberia where she was going. As soon as they got to Liberia, the war started again. Denise’s only clue as to where she was going was to find a lady called Gloria who she was going to be staying with. When she found Gloria, she said, she was told to take Denise to her biological mother. She had not been able to find her because the mother was always taking drugs and high. When they finally found her mother, the mother was dirty, smelly and carrying a newborn child. For a while however, she enjoyed the motherly love she had never had for the next three days. On the third day, her mother told her that she had to grow up now; this was not America. Her mother then started using her to get money by leaving her with men and it was just the grace of God she said that none of them ever raped her as the deal had been between them and her mother.

To escape from her mother, she found a rich boyfriend who was into and introduced her to drugs, smoking and drinking. But when the war restarted again, the man gave her money and fled. So, she also tried to flee and got to Ghana. In Ghana, she was wasting her money on her drug habit and when she got high on drugs, she would start singing. A day came when she tried singing at a Karaoke Bar, and the owner liked her voice so much, they employed her to be singing there. That was her first job. So, she started building up a new life again. She auditioned for MTN Project Fame and got to seventh place, whereas there were only five winners. The Project Fame organization did however give her a $2,000 prize with which she got her first apartment for two years. So, she realized that competitions were the only way she would be able to make clean money without sleeping with people. There were several older men who offered her help for sex which although she didn’t want to, she had no option as her money was all gone. After sleeping with such men, not one of them could fulfil their promise.

She got seriously sick and then, became suicidal. She tried to kill herself three times but someone would always come in and save her at the last minute. One of her friends said he would take her to The SCOAN and as she was wondering if it was another spiritualist or ‘juju man’, he said, ‘‘No, I am taking you to God.’’ She said, “Okay, if it is not God, after this, I am leaving this earth because I am tired”.

The road was rough and the devil really opposed her coming to The SCOAN, even making her to fight the man that tried bringing her to the church but in the end, she got to The SCOAN and received the deliverance she had never even dreamed of. Now, she is happy, delivered and free from all her addictions. She wants to give her life to Christ and asked Prophet T.B. Joshua for advice and instruction for her future.

What more can we say? Lives are changing, nations are changing and the world is changing through the Gospel of Jesus Christ on Emmanuel TV. Continue to be a part of it as you stay tuned and stay connected anywhere you are – distance is not a barrier.

tbjThe Saturday and Sunday services at The SCOAN , February 9-10, 2013, were attended by people with a passion for the presence of God from all over the world. The services were marked by the astounding healings and hard-hitting deliverances in Jesus’ name, sounding a strong spiritual wake up call to an unbelieving generation wallowing in the gloom of their circumstances and adding to the continual joy of those being saved. The Sunday programme anchored on prophecies to individuals as revealed by Prophet T.B. Joshua and the laying on of hands by the Wise Men, punctuated by glorious testimonies given by diverse people to attest to the touch of God in their lives.

During the Sunday service, Prophet T.B. Joshua addressed issues peculiar to different countries and people the world over, with many lessons of life to be gleaned from the experiences of individuals concerned and for the sharpening of the like precious faith. He had, in last weeks’ service, asked the congregants to bring to church small flags of their countries for special prayers. They had obeyed and his prayer centred specifically on the socio-political and economic travails in many countries of the world in contemporary times.

Prophet Joshua said that he carried, “the flags of all nations in my heart.” He said Emmanuel TV would rebroadcast the prayer so that people could connect to it and join him to pray for their own land and people. The flags are a symbol and for contact to the nations worldwide and that the congregation should return their flags to their personal altars hereafter for continued supplication.

The man of God mentioned some of the well known ills of society such as injustice, robbery, occultism, corruption, exploitation, child kidnapping and murder, shedding innocent blood, tribal conflicts and political misrule and mismanagement to clearly illustrate the reasons why there was need for prayer for the nations.

Using Jeremiah 1:10 as a proof text, he said representatives of each country had a duty to look up to God for solutions to their particular travails. He asked the believers and viewers all over the world a soul-searching question, “Everybody wants prosperity but how many are ready to do the work of prosperity?” adding that people needed to be honest and sincere in all they do in order to achieve God’s kind of success. His prayers for the nations took the form of a kind of confession. He asked the worshippers worldwide to take the points raised, one by one which were applicable to their nation and seek the Lord Jesus in broken-heartedness. “We are here today to confess all the sins and wrongs of the lands of our ancestors, leaders and the people. We plead for forgiveness and mercy in the name of Jesus.” The prophet prayed that the Lord should save the nations from destruction and judgement. He also prayed, “Lord Jesus, redeem our nations, lands, continents and countries of all the sins we confess and the ones we have not mentioned” – a reference to the body of evils and immoral conducts which he had already listed.

Prophet Joshua also prayed to the Lord Jesus Christ in humility and faith, declaring “I command all the forces of darkness hindering the move of God in our lands, be cast out, in Jesus’ name. We ask for Your deliverance and healing power on our countries.”

MR. PAUL {HEALED FROM FIRE BURH AW} (2)A summary of the spectacular testimonies given to glorify the Lord Jesus and admonish believers all over the world to remain steadfast to the hope they had been entrusted with, are as follows:MR. PAUL {HEALED FROM FIRE BURH AW} (1)

Mr Paul worked in an oil and gas industry. One day, an accident occurred and his leg was burnt with fire. They rushed him to the hospital and the doctors said they needed to amputate his leg. He explained the situation to his friend who came to the hospital with Anointing Water he had received from The SCOAN. After ministering the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name, his leg started to itch. Suddenly, two live maggots came out of his leg. He discovered that as the maggots left, the pain also stopped. The fire burns quickly began to heal and the doctor confirmed that he no longer needed an amputation. To God be the glory – He is the Repairer and Restorer!

Mr Moses, aged 27, came to The SCOAN in need of deliverance from a life of smoking, drinking and patronizing MOSES DELIVERED FROM HEAVY SMOKING & DRINKING AW}prostitutes. He had begun smoking at the young age of 7 years old. This had caused him severe chest pain and nightmares in which people came to beat him in his dreams. One day, a friend came to him with the Anointing Water, advising that he needed a change in his life. He encouraged Mr Moses by telling him that if he put his trust in Jesus Christ, God would wash away his sins and wipe the stain of guilt away from his life. With this belief in his heart, he prayed and ministered the Anointing Water, in Jesus’ name. After prayer, he slept. The next morning, he reached for his morning cigarette. To his surprise, the smell of the cigarette irritated him. He tried smoking but could not. It has now been over three months and he AMOS AUGUSTINE {SAVES FROM ROBBERS AS}has not once smoked, had a drink of any alcohol or visited prostitutes. He gives glory to God and encourages the youth that no matter the lifestyle they have engaged in, Jesus Christ can set them free!

Mr Amos Augustine shared a fantastic testimony of how our God, Jesus Christ rescues, saves and delivers. He said that he always ministered the Anointing Water before going to work and carried the Anointing Water with him wherever he went. One morning, he was attacked by armed robbers. They were threatening his life and property. As the armed robbers collected his wallet, they began shouting that the wallet was burning their hands and threw the wallet back at him demanding that he should open the wallet! Mr Augustine then opened the wallet to see what had caused the fire burns and the Anointing Sticker fell out! Shocked, the armed robbers started shouting and ran off. Truly, God can use any medium to rescue His children! PETER ODEH {ABDOMINAL PAIN & LIVER PROBLEM THROUGH AW}

Mr Peter, a soldier serving his country, Nigeria told his wonderful testimony of how Jesus Christ had healed him through the Anointing Water from a terrible liver problem. He was in terrible pain and discomfort as he had been diagnosed with liver enlargement which caused a swollen stomach. The problem was so severe that he was booked for an operation. Believing for a miracle, he received the Anointing Water and ministered it, in Jesus’ name. The next day, he began vomiting and black substances came out of his system. To his surprise, his stomach became normal! He went back to the doctor and was confirmed to be perfectly healthy. There was no trace of an enlarged liver. The astonished doctor asked him, “Which medication did you use?” Replying with a ZIRA YOHANNA {SAVED FROM 17 YEARS DRINKING AW}smile, Mr Peter responded that it was God’s doing through the Anointing Water. Glory to God! Speaking to the congregation, he said, “God has given me another opportunity. He has given me another chance. Doctors can treat; only Jesus can heal.”

In his own words, Mr Zira Yohana, an agent in the petroleum industry, was a “professional drunkard”. He said he could drink between five to six cartons of alcohol a day. For 17 years, he was inflicted with the severe problem of intoxication and lamented how he used to beat his wife after drinking alcohol. He also said that nobody could ‘out drink’ him when it came to alcohol. One day, he told his friend about his bad habit and his friend gave him the Anointing Water. After ministering the Anointing Water, the urge to drink alcohol left him completely. His life has been radically transformed and he is now an example to all. He advised everyone to seek forgiveness from God in order to stop their bad habits.

Mr Samson from Cameroon ran an organization that cared for widows and orphans. They occupied a building where their charitable activities were held. One day, they were reported to the authorities by a group of people who claimed they were inhabiting the building illegally. As a result of this report, everyone in the organization was arrested and put in prison. He appealed the court’s decision many times but his attempts to gain his freedom were to no avail. He knew that he had been imprisoned innocently. In prison, he had the opportunity to view Emmanuel TV. He began to watch it regularly and prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. He repeated the prayer point of the man of God who stated that all who were imprisoned by contrary forces should be released, in Jesus’ name. Believing that his prayer had been answered, he sent another appeal to the magistrate for release. Three days later, the magistrate called him and gave him a letter of release! He says that if he had not been watching Emmanuel TV and joining the anointed prayer with Prophet T.B. Joshua, he would still be in prison today. He advised all who found themselves in MR. NNADOZIE CHILAKA {DELIVERED FROMHEAVY SMOKING AW}desperate situations to look to Jesus Christ for their freedom and vindication. He is the freedom provider!

Mr Nnadozie was a chain smoker for 16 years. This caused him serious chest pain, heart burn and cough. He spent a fortune on cigarettes as he smoked 5 packs a day. He would go to church with cigarettes and excuse himself during the service to smoke. He would even go to the restroom with cigarettes! The day he resolved to give up, the urge actually increased and he smoked 10 packs! The problem became worse. When he came to The SCOAN, he was also carrying a packet of cigarettes with him. For some reason, however, he did not feel the urge to smoke throughout the entire service. He received the Anointing Water and ministered it, in Jesus’ name after the service. A moment later, he tried to light a cigarette but felt like acid was running down his throat. He started to vomit black substances and from that moment on, the urge to smoke disappeared! Thanking God for the wonderful PASTOR & MRS. PATRICK CLAIRE ETUK {PREGNANT  WITH FALLOPIAN TUBES THROUGH AW} (2)miracle, he said that even the smell of smoke irritates him now. Surely there is nothing Jesus cannot do.

Pastor and Mrs Patrick shared their incredible testimony. Mrs Patricia Patrick had suffered not one but two ectopic pregnancies that had been very traumatic for her. In the course of this problem, she underwent an operation and both of her fallopian tubes were removed, making it medically impossible for her to conceive.  Still believing that God would show Himself strong in her seemingly hopeless situation, Pastor Patrick came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water. PASTOR & MRS. PATRICK CLAIRE ETUK {PREGNANT  WITH FALLOPIAN TUBES THROUGH AW} (1)She prayed together with her husband, ministered the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name and the mother of miracles happened! After prayer, they met as husband and wife and Mrs Patrick became pregnant! They went to the hospital for a checkup and the doctors were amazed to find that both of the fallopian tubes had been totally restored!  Full of joy, Mrs Patrick told the viewers and congregation, “My advice to women who might have lost hope: The same God who restored my two tubes which were cut off, shall surely visit you, in Jesus’ name”.

MR. JOSEPH {SAVED FROM BULLETSOF ARMED ROBBERS}Mr Joseph Genesis shared his testimony of God’s supernatural protection through the medium of the Anointing Water. He suddenly found himself caught in a surprise attack from armed robbers. Seven armed men descended on him and pulled out guns to kill him, not knowing that he was armed with a superior weapon! That morning, he had ministered the Anointing Water on his body before leaving his house. He stated that the power of God in the Anointing Water created a protective shield over him and due to the Anointing Water, the bullets that were fired on him could not enter him! The armed robbers could not believe their eyes. Filled with courage at the supernatural protection, Mr Joseph began to spray the Anointing Water towards the armed robbers and they ran away in defeat. Proudly showing himself to the world that he had escaped without a scratch, Mr Joseph said, “The Anointing Water is a bullet to the wicked, evil spirits!”

Chief Superintendant of Police John Mark, a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Anambra, Nigeria came out to testify how God had touched the lives of police men in his division after he shared with them the Anointing Water he had received at The SCOAN. Two of his police officers accompanied him to The SCOAN to share their testimonies. Mr Sunday Idris, a policemen under CSP John Mark, had suffered from the embarrassing affliction of bedwetting for two years. When he received the Anointing Water, he prayed, believing that God would put an end to his suffering. After that prayer, he testified that that chain of affliction had been broken and bedwetting was a thing of the past in his life! Mr Phillip then came forward with his wife and twins, Emmanuel and Emmanuela to thank God for the miraculous release of their son Emmanuel after he was kidnapped. Armed robbers took the child and later called, demanding a ransom of N20million, an impossible amount of money for Mr Phillip to raise. The father ran straight to his DPO, John Mark. In response to the devastating news, Mr Mark gave him the Anointing Water and told him to minister it in faith, in MRS. OGWE JULIET {SAVED FROM ARMED ROBBERS THROUGH ETV}Jesus’ name. One day after he ministered the Anointing Water in prayer, local police were given a tip off to the robber’s location. Emmanuel was recovered uninjured that very day and returned to his parents! A national Nigerian newspaper covered the story of the robber’s capture, terming Emmanuel’s release as ‘miraculous’!

Mrs Ogwe Juliet, a Nigerian living in Cameroon told the world of her amazing testimony of how the Anointing Water had saved her from an armed robbery operation while onboard a ship from Cameroon to Nigeria. When the ship alarm was raised, alerting that thieves were in their midst, Mrs Juliet quickly remembered the Anointing Water and sprayed it over herself, in Jesus’ name. The ship was in a state of confusion as the thieves were robbing everyone in the ship. Amazingly, Mrs Ogwe Juliet was left in peace as the armed robbers seemed not to even notice her. A man who was also present on the ship took his money out of his pockets and placed it on top of one of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s sermons which he had received from The SCOAN. He offered it to the armed robbers, saying, “Here is my money; take it” but the armed robbers refused to take his money! Speaking to the congregation and viewers, Mrs Ogwe Juliet said, “Don’t call it ordinary water; it is anointed. There is power in it – the power of God. The power of God is above all powers”.

Mr Azawei Alanuene, a university lecturer, gave his testimony of how God had taken him from a nobody to somebody. Eating from hand to mouth for 10 years, his life was a constant struggle but when he ministered the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name, his destiny turned around! After prayer, he was suddenly called by his supervisor and told that he had been granted a scholarship to further his research by studying a PhD in The University of Nottingham, UK. He travelled to the UK for the course, continued ministering the Anointing Water over himself and his coursework and conducted ground breaking research in his specialized area. To his surprise, he was selected to present the findings of his PhD research in an MR & MRS WAZIRI {17 YRS ALCOHOLISM THROUGH ETV}international conference in China.  Glory be to God!

Mr Waziri from Taraba, Nigeria was addicted to drinking alcohol for 17 years and could drink up to 14 bottles a day. He did not see the need or have the desire to stop but one day after watching Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV prophesying to a man about the very same drinking problem, he realized his need for freedom.  As Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for the viewers, he stretched his hand and touched the screen in prayer. Instantly, the desire to drink left him and he was completely delivered in the power of the Holy Spirit. After that prayer, everything about his life was transformed. His health, business, marriage and joy were restored! Even his appearance changed as his once large belly, due to excessive drinking, shrunk back to normal. Advising those who are desperately in need of a solution, he quoted the words of Prophet T.B. Joshua, saying, “If you have run out of rope, it is time to grab onto faith!”  Hallelujah! There is no bad habit, addiction or negative lifestyle that cannot be broken, conquered and defeated by Jesus Christ!

All in all, we are reminded that the main thing about Christianity is not the work we do for God but the relationship we maintain and the atmosphere produced by that relationship. Our work for God is a reflection of our relationship with Him. We should therefore, take time to develop our relationship with the Holy Spirit by daily reading our Bibles with devotion and making the Word of God the standard for our lives.
