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.

Check out this incredible article giving insight into the state of affairs in the nation Nigeria. The writer listened to what TB Joshua said in yesterday’s service and watched as the events unfolded accordingly. 

By Nosa Osazuwa

The nation of Nigeria was in a state of limbo, a standstill going into Sunday 15th January 2012, as talks between the Federal Government and labour unions in an attempt to come to a consensus on the issue of fuel subsidies and protests, ended in an unsatisfactory deadlock.

The discussions on Saturday evening which lasted for hours in order to resolve the petrol price crisis which had caused a nationwide strike for five days was inconclusive as both sides acknowledged that they had been unable to come to a place of compromise. Talks were postponed again ‘till Sunday night, leaving Nigerians unsure of what the coming week might hold – whether continued protests nationwide or a compromise from the president and the government, or something else.

TB Joshua

On Sunday morning, while Nigerians were worrying about what the outcome of the crisis might be, many still afraid to venture out of the safety of their homes, Pastor TB Joshua, of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, Ikotun Egbe, Lagos, addressed the issue directly during his sermon, broadcast live via his TV station, Emmanuel TV.

He said that Nigeria had prayed and hoped. But that one thing that was yet to be done was to apply love. He quoted, 1 Corinthians 13:13 – There are only 3 things – faith, hope and love. The greatest is love. “Since the greatest thing is love, we need to make the greatest sacrifice. Our president is the person who should make the greatest sacrifice. The other participants will follow”, TB Joshua asserted.

Addressing the nation, he said: “My message to the nation, to you Nigeria – is compromise. Love is compromise – to give chance for peace in the interests of the nation. To compromise means we must shift ground.”

He further said: “We should not give the impression of embarrassing the president and the other participants in the crisis. To achieve this easily, our president must rely more on politicians than on technocrats”.

Towards the end of his sermon, TB Joshua once again reassured his nation of Nigeria, saying:

“The nation Nigeria and people of Nigeria – the issue of the crisis, put it behind you. You say that you are not going on Monday, that you think you’ll be restricted. No. I think God is on top. God is in control.”

Later on Sunday night, the Nigerian government sent mixed messages. Many Nigerians sat glued to their television sets, awaiting a message from the president yet none came. Talks were postponed again and Nigerians went to bed unsure of what the morrow might bring forth.

The tables turned on Monday 16th January 2012, when early in the morning, the news was released nationwide that a consensus had been reached and an agreement had finally been made.

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan said in an address to the nation that petrol prices would be reduced to 97 naira a litre. That is a reduction of about 35 percent but it still remains higher than the 65 naira per litre Nigerians paid before the government ended the fuel subsidy at the beginning of the year. That is, he had come to a place of compromise.

“The Government will continue to pursue full deregulation of the downstream petroleum sector. However, given the hardships being suffered by Nigerians, and after due consideration and consultations … the government has approved the reduction of the pump price of petrol,” said Goodluck Jonathan in a televised address Monday morning.

In response, labour unions promptly agreed to suspend mass protests to allow further negotiations with the government.

The questions that might spring to many minds are, was it all just a co-incidence or did the president listen to the counsel from TB Joshua and act according to it? Did TB Joshua send a message to the president, giving him God’s opinion on the crises at hand?

It doesn’t take Albert Einstein to see the connection between TB Joshua’s words and the action taken later that day by the President and the Federal Government.

TB Joshua is a renowned minister known world over, particularly for his prophetic ministry and his humanitarian services. Most recently, it was said that he had accurately predicted the street protests in Nigeria, stating in October 2011 that he could see people protesting from street to street, from state to state. He mentioned that the people that really make this economy work, the grassroots would soon be on the street and that the nation would come to a standstill as the big men would wonder how they could do the job by themselves.

One might ask, if the president and Nigerians had listened to this prophecy at the time it was given and sought advice on how to handle the crisis, we might not have lost the billions of naira that the catastrophe cost our nation. Perhaps our president should learn from the leaders and kings of old, who always sought God’s opinion from a prophet regarding the matters of the nation.

Wise Man Christopher

Wise Man Christopher

Wise Man Christopher, with his usual fervour, issued his message which he titled, ‘The Weapons Of Our Warfare’ to the congregation and cited many portions of the Bible to make his case clear. In his words, the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but spiritual through God in pulling down every demonic stronghold. The Word, he clarified, is not on the written page of the Bible but in the lips of the believers.  As Christians, you need to fill your mind and heart with the Word to speak it.  In Matthew 4 : 1-11, Jesus gave Christians  the battle plan when He spoke directly to the devil in the wilderness. You need to learn the value of God’s Word on your lips to confront the devil victoriously. In Ephesians 6:17, the Bible tells us that those who overcome satan will be required to use the power of the spoken Word. David, in 1 Samuel 17:45 – 50 used the Word of God in his heart as a weapon to defeat Goliath. David’s first victory was therefore in the choice of the right weapon, which was the Word of God on his lips. As Christians, Jesus has given us the Word of God as a special weapon that no power of satan can withstand. Whatever your giant or mountain, you, as a Christian, can address it with the Word of God and achieve total victory. Prayer in the power of the Holy Spirit is the most formidable weapon, the wise man concluded his message.

WOMAN EFFECTUALLY DELIVERED FROM EATING HER HAIR

A week after her deliverance, Mrs Josephine Eseme Jimmy, standing beside her husband, happily gave thanks to God for her deliverance as, according to her, the urge to eat her hair had completely disappeared.  Josephine came to The SCOAN the previous Sunday for deliverance from addiction to eating her hair, including those on her head, armpits and private parts.  She said the addiction took form after she heard a voice ordering her to eat her hair. The unusual behaviour was cultivated before her marriage and had continued since then for a length of 23 years. After her confession, Josephine was delivered in the mighty name of Jesus by Prophet T.B. Joshua who told her that she was free and would not eat her hair anymore. She said that in her dream two days after the deliverance, the demon appeared to her to lure her to the old act but immediately, the man of God also appeared and the demon ran in fear. The man of God then held her and she woke from sleep. That was the end of her addiction to eating her hair.  The couple thanked the prophet one more time for being used by Jesus to bring about her deliverance. In reaction, the prophet once more established the difference between authority and power. In his words, knowing facts about Jesus does not change your relationship with Him. He however added that your reward for a relationship with Jesus is power.

SPIRITUAL HUSBAND’S HOLD RELEASED IN JESUS’ NAME

A video clip on the events of the previous Sunday service showed Wise Man Daniel as he laid hands on the congregants. A woman among them,Mrs Alberta Boakye from Ghana reacted by manifesting the spiritual husband in her.

The spirit, speaking through her, said Alberta was his wife who disobeyed her to marry an earthly husband. The spirit added that it had destroyed the husband’s ministry for that reason. The spirit also said their second child could not learn because of the punishment by the spiritual husband. She was then delivered after prayer from Wise Man Daniel. Standing by her pastor husband as she gave her testimony, Alberta revealed that she sensed the spiritual husband in her life at the age of 16 when it used to have sex with her in her dreams. The spirit had been a thorn in their marriage of ten years, causing her to inflict emotional pain on her husband all the time. Under the influence of the spirit, she became the husband and took delight in issuing orders to her husband and beating him. She was however relieved to be free after her deliverance.

In response to the prophet, Pastor Nicholas the husband chronicled all the shameful treatment his wife inflicted on him under the influence of the spiritual husband. She would wake up and ask her husband in the dead of night to clean the house and wash the dishes. When she knew it was fasting time for her husband, she would deliberately set food before him to break the fast unjustifiably. Either she would meet the husband in the church to fight and embarrass him or prevent him by force from going to church after he was ready. On such occasions, the pastor whose church had branches in other countries, would call his fellow pastors in the church to ask them to carry on as he was still ‘waiting on God’. He lost his congregation to other churches and the branches closed because of the wife’s abnormal behaviour.  A king of the community who attended his church withdrew his membership because of the wife’s behaviour. After praying for the deliverance of the pastor, Prophet T.B. Joshua assured him that he would assist him to reactivate his ministry and re-open the branches. Asked to comment on her husband’s confession, Alberta, in unmistakable remorse said, ‘I feel bad and sad’ and bemoaned satan for all that her husband had suffered in her hands. Prophet T.B. Joshua ended the episode by explaining that it was the evil spirit inside the wife that was responsible and now that she was delivered, her husband should not remind her of the past.

MAN DELIVERED FROM THE SPIRIT OF MASTURBATION

Mr Solomon Ogheneovo

A man from Delta, Nigeria, Solomon Ogheneovo by name, told the congregation of himself as a victim of the spirit of masturbation for 24 years. He thought that getting married would stop the embarrassing act but in fact, it continued. Even after marriage, he masturbated at least every day. After unsuccessful efforts, which included fasting and prayer, on his part to stop it, he finally decided to seek the face of the Lord in The SCOAN. After receiving the Anointing Water, he gathered his family and they prayed with it. That prayer, according to him, marked the end of his masturbation. He thanked God for using the prophet to bring an end to this torment in his life.

ANOINTING WATER RESTORES MENSTRUATION

Mrs Mercy Anthony

Mrs Mercy Anthony told listeners how she regained her menstruation which ceased for seven years, completely unresponsive to her efforts to reactivate it.  She said a good Samaritan gave her a virtually empty bottle of the Anointing Water which she topped with water, prayed with and ministered on herself. Following that, her menstruation miraculously reappeared. She ended her testimony by advising all her listeners to trust God who has an answer to whatever problems they might have.

ANOINTING WATER RESTORES MEMORY AND FETCHES PROMOTION

Rahamat Yusuf Suleiman had an accident in April which, among other injuries, affected her memory. This affected her reading and preparation for her promotion examination in her workplace. The result was that she failed the examination and was denied promotion. After efforts elsewhere to find a cure had failed, she sent a friend to The SCOAN for the Anointing Water.

  On receiving the Anointing Water, she prayed with it and sprayed it on herself, particularly her forehead. Soon after, to her amazement, she vomited an earthworm. The Anointing Water gave her total healing and following her prayer with it before going for another promotion examination in her workplace, she found the questions the same as the ones she had read, making her pass the examination with ease. As she gave her testimony, Rahamat displayed her promotion letter which was the outcome of her success in the examination.  Rahamat advised her listeners to go to the Lord always for a solution to their problems.

CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR THE AGED, DISABLED AND CHILDREN WORLDWIDE

The Emmanuel TV Team and Partners as usual filled trailers with gifts of rice, flour and other food items and transported them to the elderly and physically challenged both within Nigeria and internationally.

Yobe rice trailer 2

Borno rice trailer 1

Two of the many states in Nigeria that were visited by The Emmanuel TV Team were Yobe and Borno in the far north of the country. The team set off with two trailers each filled to capacity with rice and flour, in addition to cash gifts. The venue for the meeting with the Emmanuel TV  Team was General Hospital Leprosy Centre, Maiduguri. People gathered from all around Borno State to attend the meeting.

Borno rice trailer 2

The team sent by T.B. Joshua presented the community leaders with cash gifts and the bags of rice were distributed among everyone, regardless of race, faith or background. The Bible teaches us that we should love our neighbours as ourselves. In the same vein, various gifts were also dispatched to the needy and elderly people in Kremenchuk, Ukraine. In the Asian continent, Lahore, Pakistan was also visited with bags of rice, flour and other gift items.

FINANCIAL AID TO VISUALLY IMPAIRED STUDENTS

In the course of the service, five visually impaired students from the University of Jos were led to the platform where they narrated their financial problems as students, one after another.

Yakubu, a student of Special Education and Rehabilitation Sciences, was the first to bare his mind about his financial needs as a student and concluded that he needed the sum of N92,000.00 to pay his school fees and solve other problems as a student.  The rest, in turn, also spoke, explaining that as students, even the money to release their results was hard to come by. Upon listening to their complaint, the prophet directed that their needs be met. Consequently, a total sum of N284,300.00 and bags of rice were disbursed among them.

MASS PRAYER FREES ALL

T.B Joshua

Praying in the power of the Holy Spirit, Prophet T.B. Joshua led the congregation and viewers worldwide in a powerful time of mass prayer. Many vomited the poisons long buried in their systems, thus receiving their freedom. The prophet prayed for the total release of his listeners in many areas of their lives, including their finances, businesses, marital lives among others. He also prayed for the restoration of their destinies and health. In the course of the mass prayer, the prophet issued prophecies to some people who, in reaction came forward to confirm the prophecies. Confirming that the entire congregation had been delivered and was free, the prophet proceeded to say the grace and bring the service to a close.

ENCOURAGING WORDS

T.B. JOSHUA

Referring to many portions of the Bible and particularly to Job 29:24, Prophet T.B. Joshua dwelt on the theme of love and encouragement. Using Job 29:24 as a case for consideration, he remarked that Job means that a look of approval at those in trouble or need gives them hope and assurance. Identifying with those in need as a Christian is precious to them. On the other hand, says Job, looking at the other side when your neighbour is in trouble is ungodly. Loving your enemy is always unreasonable unless you realise that you were an enemy of God until He forgave you. It is also His will that you remember that you have sinned and been forgiven, for it is that remembrance that creates a forgiving heart towards your neighbours. To love an enemy is to see him as Christ does. The issue is not resolved until forgiveness is voiced and received from the heart. Do not allow confrontation to tear you down or pull you apart. Rather, see confrontation as a means of coming closer together, going together and being prepared together for an ever greater relationship. Do not reject anyone on account of weakness because the future is a mystery. You cannot say what will happen tomorrow; someone you reject today may be your strength or helper tomorrow. A person who is a thorn in your flesh today may be your helper tomorrow. If I reject you on account of your weakness, I also reject your strength. If a person is weak in one area, he may be strong in another area, the prophet concluded.

ANOINTING WATER DELIVERS COUPLE FROM DRUNKENNESS

Mr and Mrs Shindume of Namibia were among those who shared their testimony. According to Mr Julius Shindume, he had been a drunkard for 24 years. In fact his wife, Vineyard was also a drunkard. The couple had gone to many places in an effort to stop the ugly habit without success. Luckily for them, their neighbour, a nurse who was a member of the Emmanuel TV team to Haiti, received some Anointing Water from Prophet T.B. Joshua when she visited The SCOAN. At home in Namibia, she invited the couple, prayed with the Anointing Water and ministered it to them. From the moment that the Anointing Water was ministered, the ugly habit stopped.

Testifying to the goodness of God

Mr Shindume reported that he had lost his job and was rejected by his family for his drinking habit. Holding his wife to himself in tears, he recollected how she had prayed fervently for him to deliver him from the shame. In her testimony, the wife confirmed that a week after praying with the nurse, they attended a burial ceremony of her husband’s sister but surprisingly, the husband never drank alcohol there, in spite of its ready availability there.

In his advice to his listeners, Julius asked them not to lose hope but to have faith in God who has answer to all problems.

 

ANOINTING WATER ENDS STAPHYLOCOCCUS

Testifying to the glory of God.

 

Mr Jonathan Awewor of Delta but resident in Rivers, Nigeria narrated how he saw himself passing out blood for urine sometime in 1999. When he met his doctor, he was said to be suffering from staphylococcus. It also affected his sperm.  In reaction, a friend brought the Anointing Water to him for ministration. When he had prayed and ministered the Anointing Water, he dreamt that night that he saw a worm coming out of his finger.  After the dream, he went for a second test where he was told to be staphylococcus free. He advised all his listeners to get the Emmanuel TV cable and apply the Anointing Water in faith and the rest would be testimony.

 

 

ANOINTING WATER ENDS YEARS OF SETBACKS

 

No more setbacks

Mrs Ebere Uzonma, a media practitioner from Ebonyi, Nigeria took turns to tell the congregation about the goodness of the Anointing Water upon her life. In her words, her life before then was characterized by challenges, setbacks and disappointments.In fact, behind her media glamour was real hunger, she added. She received the Anointing Water last year and met the man of God who told her, ‘Go, your problems are over’. Thereafter, she had been praying daily with the Anointing Water and ministering it on herself in faith and today there is much difference in her life.  About 11 pm one day, she received a call which had since then changed her life. That singular call had brought many jobs to her as a media practitioner. She had left her government job and established her own magazine, The Kings. She was able to renovate her house which got burnt and also bought a new car. Her mission to The SCOAN was to thank God for the breakthrough received through the Anointing Water. Advising her listeners to believe in God, she added that they should take a step forward to the Source of power and blessing.

 

ANOINTING WATER VOIDS OPERATION

God can use any medium to express Himself

 

 

Mr and Mrs Chukwuka of Adamawa, Nigeria told the congregation that they had come to The SCOAN with the difficulty of delivery because the baby inside her womb was overweight, weighing 3.8 kilos. The doctor then prescribed an operation for her. She added that she lost her first baby for the same reason. In The SCOAN, they received the Anointing Water which they prayed with and applied. Moments after, labour started and by evening the same day, she had delivered her baby. She never even got to the hospital before her overweight baby came out safely! The couple thanked God for His mercy upon their lives.

 

 

 

PRAYER POSITIONS BABY FOR DELIVERY

The power of prayer

A video clip introduced the case of Mrs Nnena Ezema, a Nigerian in Cotonu, whose pregnancy could not be delivered because of wrong positioning as diagnosed by her doctor. She however, shunned the operation suggested by the doctor because she had done one before. She then came to The SCOAN, where Wise Man Racine prayed for her. At the time of prayer, the baby was already weak and no more kicking.  However, the grace of the Lord was present and soon after the prayer, she delivered safely. She advised the congregation to have faith in God with whom all things are possible.

 

 

PASTOR DELIVERED FROM THE RAVAGES OF IDOLS

Pastor Nneka Ekeleka from an idol worshipping community in Imo, Nigeria came to thank God for her deliverance. In her words, her father had been the custodian of the community idols in addition to his personal one. The birth of a new baby was usually an occasion for dancing and offering animals to the gods from which both adults and children in the family fed. Her father at her marriage gave part of the oracle to the father of her first husband. The two children she had in that marriage died.  Her second marriage broke down the same day. In her third marriage, they, realising the evil the oracle had caused in their family, persuaded their father to do away with it. That very night a demon attacked her in a dream and her father died. After the death of her father, her brother organised a crusade in which many oracles were burnt but they could not locate their father’s oracle. In an effort to get rid of her spiritual problems she underwent deliverances in many churches. During this time she attended a Bible School and at the end of her the course was made a pastor. Her final deliverance in The SCOAN in the hands of the Wise Men warded the demon from her life. In his reaction, her husband who watched her at home on Emmanuel TV during the deliverance, thanked God for his wife’s freedom from the bondage of the devil.  Prophet T.B. Joshua praised her for her efforts, adding that if not for her efforts to be delivered, she would have been dead or seriously sick in a wheel chair. He promised a meeting with her where he would tell her the area of her calling.

GIRL DELIVERED FROM EATING CEMENT

With God all things are possible

An 18 – year old girl, Portia accompanied by her mother, stunned the congregation with her odd habit of eating cement  and charcoal as revealed by her mother. She cultivated this habit five years before and grew with it till her mother brought her to The SCOAN. Portia revealed that she found all of these items sweet to eat. The habit, she said, developed five years earlier at a construction site where cement was being used.  She inhaled the scent of an opened bag of cement at the site and was attracted to it. Thereafter, she put the cement powder into her mouth and found it enjoyable.  Later, charcoal came in to diversify her menu.  In a string of surprises, Prophet T.B. Joshua, rather than proceeding to deliver her after she had confirmed the habit by eating these items in everybody’s presence, decided to use the medium of one of The SCOAN prayer lines.  In a phone conversation between her and the prayer warrior,

Deliverance in the power of the Holy Ghost!

Portia described her odd habit to the prayer warrior who, in turn proceeded to pray for her. At the mention of the name Jesus, Portia fell in deliverance and was declared free from her demonic addiction to eating cement and charcoal. On getting up after the deliverance, she said she had a sensation within her during the deliverance and that she became lighter than before.

To God be the glory!

Given those items which had been the mainstay of her diet, she withdrew at the sight of cement and charcoal, saying that as well as being bitter, they had lost their appeal to her as food.  She advised the young ones not to eat anything that is not food but make God’s Word the standard for their lives.

MASS PRAYER TO IDENTIFY GOD’S VOICE

Taking the lead in a spirited mass prayer, Prophet T.B. Joshua asked the congregation to pray to God to grant them the grace to be sensitive to His voice when He calls so that they would not be deceived by the devil. “Help me to be sensitive to Your voice. When it comes, let me know that it is Your voice.” The mass prayer session, which witnessed wild display among many who were demon-possessed, ushered the congregation and Emmanuel TV viewers alike into a spiritual level where the devil can no more exploit their ignorance to deceive them. The service closed on a note of excitement as many left delighted about the new spiritual realm.

After the choir had prepared the atmosphere with tunes for the Holy Spirit,  Wise Man Christopher emerged for the Sunday message. Greeting the congregation warmly and wishing them easy transformation from darkness to light, he proceeded to pray with them. ‘I believe in your Word’, he went on, as the congregation repeated after him. ‘In your Word is my salvation, redemption and victory’, the wise man took the congregation through a length of heart- lifting prayer to the Lord.  Beginning with a short story of a Christian friend who wondered why he had trials in his life in spite of his devotion to the work of God, the wise man advised that trials and tribulations were part of Christianity. In his words, the Bible says everyone who works with the Lord will have testing but that as a child of God, your trouble is not like others’; it is for the glory of God. Trouble comes not because of any wrong step but because we are in a complex and contradictory world. The children of God, according to him, are passing through this world to a place prepared for them. This Is Not Heaven, he aptly titled his message. Citing John 16:33 as his proof text, the wise man said Jesus overcame for us and so we shall overcome, though there will be disappointments, as said in the proof text. In 2 Corinthians 12:7-10, Apostle Paul derived strength from the Lord. My grace is made perfect in your weakness. Though Apostle Paul was tormented by a thorn in his flesh, the grace of Christ was sufficient for him  and so for us, the wise man affirmed. Continuing, he said the thorn of Christ makes easy and sanctifies our thorns. Jesus took our place in afflictions. Troubles are designed for our spiritual development and  to advance our course. Our situation could be to humble us but to leave us dignified at last. Spiritual burdens are ordered to cure spiritual pride. He allows poverty and setback to humble us. He will however, prepare us for it. Those God calls for service, He makes fit for it, Deuteronomy 28:7. The enemies will come in a united manner but they will be confounded and routed by the superior power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus is greater than all the combined forces of hell. He has conquered death for our sake to bring us to the Father. To hope is to look forward to a Heavenly home that will last forever.  Stones were hurled at Stephen but his affection for God’s command was regular because of his hope, Acts 7:54. In Romans 8:35-39, Paul advised Christians to keep the solid front in the face of sickness. The rich should not concentrate on their wealth or the poor on their situation because a man may be poor, yet be a candidate of Heaven. Citing Luke 6:20- 26, the wise man recited the beatitudes. Don’t doubt the genuineness of your spiritual experience or question your sonship of Christ because of your situation. The promise of God can only be appropriated by faith which comes through hearing and obeying the Word of God. We were elected before the foundation of the world to inherit the Kingdom of God. Faith is a necessary condition to access Heaven. Faith purifies and justifies us and removes the guilt of sin. The opening of our eyes of faith is the silencing of our fears. Fear not, for those who are fighting for you are more than those out to destroy you. Because you know that Heaven is your permanent Home, let everything that has to do with you be redeemed now and forever, the wise man prayed in conclusion.

 

THE OBJECT OF FAITH IS GOD

A lot of Christians, Prophet T. B. Joshua said, after commending the message, grumble and despair about their situation because their lives are centred on how they are doing. How clearly, he asked, do we really see our lives? When you look at your life, what do you see? Do you see your life the way Jesus sees it? Continuing, the prophet added, ‘A man I met yesterday told me that the Holy Spirit gave him an idea but advised him not to take the credit.’ Don’t take the credit, he echoed, is a Word from the Holy Ghost. It is all about Jesus, he said. All we do is to give back what we have received from His generous hands. Don’t take the credit, he reminded his listeners. Citing Mark 11:1, he said whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed’, and does not doubt in his heart, it will be done. The prophet emphasized the prayer of faith. The object of our faith is God. Have faith in God, Jesus said, according to him. Teaching today, he went on, encourages believers to have faith in faith. On the contrary, he maintained, it should be on the finished work of Jesus. Because He is good all the time, I can bring my request to Him and cast my cares  upon Him. Why complain, murmur or despair? Realising that He is God and I am not; that He is a Father and I am but a child; He is a Shepherd; I am a straying sheep, I should have faith in God. We often hear, he continued, that prayer changes things but this is not entirely true. Prayer, he corrected, changes us; faith causes things to happen. Advising his listeners to have faith in God, he added, today we pray but lack the necessary faith to release the belief in our hearts. There is power in our mouth; the belief in our heart is released by faith out of our mouth. Faith requires us to speak the Word before we feel or see the result. The object of faith, he concluded, is God.

 

TOTAL DELIVERANCE FROM EATING SAND

Delivered the previous Sunday from the spirit of eating sand and mattress, Ammen in company with his mother appeared on the platform to confirm the deliverance after the video clip refreshed viewers’ minds. Mrs Izah, the mother joyfully told the congregation that her son no more  had no appetite for those things after the deliverance.  Confirming her mother’s testimony in response to the prophet’s questions, Ammen said that he wanted to be a pastor to pray for the sick, so that they would not die and agreed to submit himself to the fasting and prayer demanded by the profession.

 

A woman from Anambra, Nigeria and her 14 year-old son took the platform and told the congregation that the son had been eating sand and mattress since the age of four. She added that her watching the deliverance of a girl from Tanzania on Emmanuel TV, fuelled her visit to The SCOAN regarding their plight. Enlightening his listeners on his affliction, Onyeka Ibiano said that at night, an object appeared to him and that caused the addiction to sand and mattress since that time. After touching and staring at him for a while, the prophet declared him free.

 

 

 

MAN DELIVERED FROM THE SPIRIT OF ROBBERY

A video clip revealed Wise Man Racine as he laid hands on worshippers and asking one man among them, ‘Who are you?’ ‘Nobody’, the man responded. Worried that the man’s deliverance was not thorough as he never opened up, the prophet insisted on his re-deliverance.  Confirming that he never opened up, Chukwemeka Paul, accompanied by his wife, agreed to open up and told the story of his life. He admitted being a cultist in a group of boys who delighted in drinking, robbing  and raping girls. Threatened in Nigeria, he went to Ghana where he discovered that security awareness was even higher and he decided to go into computer training. He married in Ghana but did not approach lovemaking in a normal way, afflicted by the spirit of raping. In a way he never quite understood, he found himself in The SCOAN and after his second deliverance, he demanded to know from the prophet whether the wife who had had twins by him was his God-given wife. He explained that they enjoyed no peace in their marriage and the wife often nagged, calling him a baby especially because of his age. He added that he enjoyed peace more with other women than with his wife. The wife narrated that the man lured her into cultism after she married him. They came into the relationship through a call given to her by the erroneous tapping of just a digit by the man who had intended to call his sister. She was not surprised because her church had told her that her prospective husband would locate her in such a manner. She however complained about the raping approach of her husband to lovemaking. The man of God delivered them and declared their marriage sanctified from Heaven.

 

 

 

 

 

YOUNG LADY DELIVERED FROM MANY EVIL SPIRITS

The osude family from Anambra, Nigeria, though resident in Lagos, appeared on the platform for their  testimony.
According to the spokesperson among them, they came for the Monday service where Wise Man Christopher prayed and laid hands on them. But on Wednesday, they noticed that their sister, Ikechukwu started to display signs and antics of evil attacks causing her to be violent. It was in that state of violence that they brought her back to the church. As the wise man laid hands on Ikechukwu on the Monday in question, she opened up in a smile and Wise Man Christopher told her that he knew her and she knew he knew her. In her testimony after the second deliverance in the prayer line, she told her listeners that after the Monday service, she began to behave funnily and talk nonsense by Wednesday and so her family brought her to The SCOAN on Thursday. She said she possessed many evil spirits which gave her all sorts of powers that she used to wreck the lives of her parents and siblings.  She said her misbehaviour began at the age of five, when she was afflicted with the spirits of lust and gluttony among others. At the age of five, she was fond of watching herself act before a mirror, where a woman appeared to her and asked her whether she would be her friend. She agreed and thereafter, she played with the woman often, though unnoticed by other people. She started having meetings in the spirit world and had astral powers by which she visited many parts of the world effortlessly. She attacked members of her family one after the other. She afflicted her father with high blood pressure and made him a debtor. She wrecked her mother’s business and rendered her sisters jobless in spite of their very good degrees in International Relations.  At the end of her breath-taking and most surprising confession, she pleaded with the man of God to deliver her family from all the evils of the devil for the past 50 years.

 

ANOINTING WATER DELIVERS THE WORLD

The miraculous work of the Anointing Water in the four corners of the earth was shown on Emmanuel TV. In country after country where the Anointing Water was administered, the atmosphere became charged with anointing that set the devil and all its evil spirits in confusion and disarray. Many of the faithful in such locations became delivered   from ailments which many prayers of yesteryears were yet to free them from. In eager anticipation of the miracles associated with the Anointing Water, congregants besieged the venues in their thousands before the appointed time of service. To the glory of God, they were not disappointed because many left the scene with testimonies of deliverance and healing. That was the picture in London, UK; Athens, Greece; Cape Town, South Africa; Accra, Ghana and other locations where the Anointing Water was ministered.  In Cameroon, where the man of God had just okayed a house fellowship for a family about a month before, the congregation was so much that the man of God, in his surprise, never knew how to classify it. Equally amazing, according to the family granted the concession, was the dumbfounding work of the Anointing Water in deliverance and healing.

 

WRISTBAND WRIGGLES POLICE OFFICER FROM DEATH

Mr John Mark of Kogi State but working in Katsina as a chief superintendent of police also mounted the platform for his testimony. He said he had come to The SCOAN on 31st December for a breakthrough service during the candle night. He added that the man of God prophesied about violence in the country and advised worshippers to obtain both the Anointing Water and the Wristband, which he did. On a date in May 2011, water came out of his Wristband unusually like sweat.  Not quite sure how to react to the situation, he stayed put in his office until his phone rang and a voice asked him to take one of the vehicles for patrol on one of the major streets. He noticed that as he came out of the office, the sweat on the Wristband stopped. He never knew that at that time, hoodlums had come to plant bombs in the police premises. As soon as he drove out for the patrol, he had a terrible sound of the detonated bomb that brought the entire office down in rubbles.  To his surprise, the portion of the office block where he hung the portrait of the man of God and the Anointing Water stood strong and unaffected by the bomb blast. The panel of investigators who had earlier suspected that he had secret knowledge of the blast before it happened, in view of the fact that it was just ten minutes after he left when the blast occurred, became convinced that his safety was the work of God when they saw the Anointing Water and the portrait still hanging safely. Before then, the service provider had no record too of the voice that invited him out of the office. It was the Holy Spirit, they then realised, that took him out of the office and death by that call. Thanking God for His mercy, Mr John Mark remarked that he had become a different person and that his life was no more his. As regards the breakthrough for which he came for the candle light service, Mr John told his listeners that he got it in many areas of his life.

 

CEASED MENSTRUATION REVIVED AFTER LAYING HANDS

Mrs Ogeshi Okeke from Imo State joyfully mounted the podium to tell her listeners that after the hand- laying ceremony of the very day, she went to the ladies to check herself following the sensation she received when Wise Man Racine laid hands on her.  She had, since her miscarriage last December, lost her menstruation and was longing for it. In the ladies, she saw that her menstruation had miraculously surfaced and she thanked God most spiritedly for the miracle, reassuring her listeners that everything happen at the opportune time and that nothing is beyond God. It is all praise to God almighty as we watch the miracles  which we read in the Bible happening again ceaselessly in our time.

The spell of adoration melodies which opened the service was followed by the message entitled, ‘A More Convenient Time’ given by Our Mother in the Lord, Evangelist Mrs Evelyn Joshua. In the message, she recognised that there is time for every activity under Heaven (Ecclesiastes). Man may work hard and struggle but only God can determine the moment of harvest. We need to include God in whatever we do for a good harvest. Waiting for a convenient time will cause assignments to pile up. A convenient time may not even come. There is need for us like the lame man at The Beautiful Gate to actively reach out to Jesus to claim His blessings. She went on to cite many excerpts from the Bible to buttress her point.
Mounting the altar in succession to Evangelist Evelyn Joshua, Prophet T. B. Joshua drew his listeners’ attention to the ongoing elections in Nigeria and called for prayers. He added that the sky is still cloudy but that with God on our side peace is achievable. After a moment of comments of assurance by the prophet on the new Anointing Water, some testimonies followed in corroboration.

ANOINTING WATER HEALS SICKNESS-RIDDEN PREMATURE BABY
A couple by name Alli from South Africa mounted the platform to give a testimony on their new born baby. Standing by his wife who was seated with the baby on her lap, Mr Alli, a Nigerian resident in South Africa, unfolded his testimony to the congregation in their rapt attention. According to Mr Alli, an emergency operation on his wife in the seventh month of pregnancy became imperative to save the life of the premature baby. After the operation, a number of complications, including symptoms of pneumonia and meningitis, on the health of the baby were detected. The health of the baby so deteriorated that it became inevitable to fix a respiratory tube to the baby by which it could breathe.The doctor expected the tube to be in place for three weeks at least. Meanwhile, Mr Fabian Alli had instructed his sister in Nigeria to go to The SCOAN, collect the Anointing Water and send it to him by DHL. To the glory of God, this scheme was effected under forty eight hours and Fabian was able to administer the Anointing Water to the baby. The tests conducted on the baby after the administration of the Anointing Water revealed tremendous improvements in its health. Many of the sickness –inducing bacteria earlier discovered in the baby, such as the ones in the upper respiratory tract, vanished along with the infirmities earlier mentioned. Miraculously, the tube for breathing disconnected itself from the baby at midnight without causing any breathing problems to the baby. All these miraculous happenings ushered the baby into good health as confirmed by the doctor. The couple told their testimony to the congregation who visibly rejoiced with them for the showers of miracles which their baby had enjoyed.

ANOINTING WATER DEFEATS COMMUNITY GOD
The next testimony came from Ngozi and her husband, Mr Eku, both from Kano, Nigeria . Ngozi was one of those delivered in the church about a year before by the man of God from the effects of community gods and shrines in their villages the fear of which had caused them not to visit these villages for over ten years. In the case of Ngozi, her village worshipped the python and her father, before he died, infected his compound with the water from the habitat of the python, making him and his family specially close to the python. As a beloved daughter of her father, Ngozi specially attracted the attention of the python to the extent that her marital life came directly under the influence of the python. She was constantly visited in her dreams by the python and the effects of these visits on her marital life were quite telling. Each time she was pregnant, the visit would induce a miscarriage. She lost six pregnancies and her first husband as a consequence of these visits. When she luckily got another husband and got impregnated by him, the visits never stopped. She lost the first pregnancy by the second husband to the python. Faced with the reality of ceased menstruation after a long season of hard luck, Ngozi was in a real dilemma. It was this, in a package of many other reasons, that necessitated her visit to The SCOAN on 28th February 2010 where she received deliverance in the hands of the prophet in the name of Jesus Christ. Among many benefits from the deliverance were the restoration of her menstruation and a pregnancy that was nurtured in peace resulting from the ostracism of the python from her spiritual life. With her baby girl as the only surviving one out of eight pregnancies, Mrs Ngozi Eku, now in a motherhood status, has every reason to thank God after the long journey of many disappointments has given way to joy and celebration.

ANOINTING WATER STANDS ASTRIDE THE WORLD
In confirmation of the eclipsing powers of the Anointing Water, video clips revealing the works of miracle associated with the Anointing Water in other countries were activated for the benefit and consumption of viewers. The clips revealed works of miracle of the Anointing Water in Greece, Ghana and the United Kingdom. In each of these countries, the Anointing Water generated a spiritual aura where contrary spirits were rendered homeless and helpless leading to the deliverance of many of those hitherto held bound by such spirits. In Greece, for example, a woman with migraine and a spiritual husband was delivered by God using the medium of the Anointing Water. In the same country, a man with an injury in the knee cap and who consequently depended on crutches for movement also received his healing through the agency of the Anointing Water. Similar feats were recorded in both Ghana and the United Kingdom. In the UK, a woman who was demon-possessed was delivered by our Lord using the Anointing Water as a medium. In Ghana, the evangelist sent there by the prophet delivered a woman who was demon-afflicted. In the same way, a man who had been disabled for six years and relied on crutches for walking was also delivered and restored to full health and independence of the walking aids. There were many cases of people falling and being delivered from contrary spirits in all the countries mentioned.

PASTOR’S WIFE DELIVERED FROM THE SPIRIT OF STEALING
A video clip also revealed the case of a pastor’s wife who received a prophecy from the prophet during the Monday noon service that she had run from her husband’s house to The SCOAN because of her life of breakage and stealing. Appearing on the platform with her husband, the woman, Ruth by name, confirmed the prophecy and admitted that she had been stealing right from infancy. She had had the spirit of stealing which made her break into people’s houses for their personal effects. In one of the cases, she stole a cloth in the market but a man promptly paid for it for her and cautioned that she should not be taunted and disgraced by the on-lookers. Her regular victim was a woman in their neighbourhood who dealt in provisions. About noon when the woman was away, Mrs Ruth Ajumo would jump the fence and break the woman’s door to pack her provisions. Unfortunately, the husband was not aware of this nefarious practice of hers. Delivering her from the spirit of theft, the prophet remarked that that trait in her was over.

DELIVERANCE RESTORES MARITAL ONENESS
The next case was that of a young man who decided to jilt his wife because of the unpleasant sexual experiences he used to have with her. According to Mr Toyin Taiwo, the man in question, each time he wanted to enjoy sexual intimacy with his wife, he would observe that his penis would shrink and look like that of a day –old baby but when he went to women outside to ascertain his situation, he would have a very surprising difference seeing his male organ ‘like an elephant’ in full erection. Assuming his wife to be responsible for this abnormality, he decided to end the marriage. Confirming this prophecy for the second time in the April 10th service, Mr Toyin however admitted that the situation changed since the Sunday before, following the deliverance by the prophet. Confirming the view, his wife informed the congregation that she had gone back to her marriage following the normalization, at work, of her husband’s private parts. The man of God exonerated the wife from all insinuations, maintaining that Mr Toyin, at the very time, had a mistress whom he nursed plans to have as a second wife.

MISUNDERSTANDING WORDS OF PROPHECY
The next video clip was among other reasons activated to correct the culpable presumptions among the congregants regarding the import of the prophecies issued to them. In the said repartee between Wise Man Christopher and Mrs Ezekweolome, the latter corrected the wise man erroneously about her own marital status. When Wise Man Christopher cautioned her to be careful about disappointments, the lady misinterpreted the expression and promptly told the wise man that she was already married. Making himself clearer, the wise man told her that he knew that. He was, on the contrary, simply warning her about the possible collapse of the marriage if care was not taken. Luckily for the wise man, her husband was around to add that he had sent her home the previous week because of her perceived misdemeanour. Defending herself on the last score, Mrs Ezekwelolome, a non working housewife, deprecated the repression she suffered in the hands of her husband who additionally habitually made her account for every kobo she received from him. She strongly felt that her views and wishes to engage in some private business deserved consideration by her husband. In his defence, the husband stated that apart from taking full charge of her education, he had sponsored her trips to France and the United States of America. Her recent wish to go to Dubai for business in gold would put the entire family at risk apart from rendering him the sole caretaker of the children. Speaking on behalf of the womenfolk, about four women in the congregation expressed support for the husband and praised him for his consideration for the welfare of the entire family while advising the wife to be contented with the contributions of the husband to her well-being. The prophet, while inviting them to a reconciliation meeting, expressed the view that a marriage where both participants saw themselves as equally gifted in sophistication and intelligence and neither was ready to bow to the other was indeed a difficult one to manage but with God all things are possible.

The assurance by the prophet that the Monday noon service was in place by way of continuation made the congregation concede to call it a day.

TESTIMONIES BROKEN HOMES AND RECONCILIATION
The service was filled with interesting testimonies like other Sunday services in the past. A very interesting incident was recorded in the Monday service of January 24th when, in a prophecy, one of the congregants was told that the lady he came to the Church with and who assumed the role of wife for him was not actually his wife.

Mrs.Ifeoma

Mrs. Ifeoma

When he admitted that the woman, Mrs Ifeoma, was his friend’s wife, the man of God asked him to go home and bring his own wife but advised Mrs Ifeoma to stay back as her husband would be invited to the Church. Meanwhile, Mr Ifeoma was watching the incident on Emmanuel Television in Cotonou. As arranged, the prophet sent for the real husband of Mrs Ifeoma and he came. He is a 35 year old man with no visible means of livelihood. According to his wife, Mrs Ifeoma, they are Nigerians from Umuahia in Abia State but currently resident in Cotonou. As a man without a job, he had received financial help from the friend, Mr Livinus who brought his wife to the Church. It was possibly those gestures of assistance that brought him close to Mrs Ifeoma. As the prophet revealed, it was Mrs Ifeoma that lured him into the illicit relationship. In their privacy, the prophet talked very much to the man whose wife came with another man before he agreed to forgive his wife and his friend. Before the congregation Mr Livinus cried and said that his poverty was the cause of his woe and wondered aloud whether he could ever forgive his wife and the man. In tears, the wife asked him for forgiveness. Narrating his plight to the prophet and the congregation, he said his family had been suffering because of his joblessness.

Mrs.lfeoma and her husband Mr Livinus


The couple and their five kids hardly had a place to lay their heads and the children were out of school. They depended on charity for living. He concluded by appealing to the prophet for help. Asked again whether he would forgive his wife and friend, he hesitantly agreed but added that forgiving them would be easier if the prophet assisted him. This generated laughter across the entire Church. The prophet reminded him that he was lucky that it was a friend who did this to him but not somebody that could want him dead and have the wife after that. Thereafter, the prophet said he was ready to give him and his family a two bedroom flat, a job for the man, scholarship for his children and the sum of N300,000 for his wife, a hairdresser, to start some trade. Some other congregants also expressed a wish to give him money for the upkeep of his family. The prophet’s gesture of kindness means he will move his family from Cotonou to Lagos. The couple were very elated at the generosity of the prophet and knelt down for a long time thanking him. The woman was delivered from the spirit of lust.
T.B. Joshua

T.B. Joshua

The man of God thereafter went into a long speech about the various crises families face and advised them to always watch and pray. The beginner, he says, is not the owner but the finisher. He said of the family in question that if God were not involved in their problem, they would not find their way to the Church.
God wanted to put an end to the illicit relationship between Mrs Ifeoma and the man. It was Mrs Ifeoma that lured the man into the relationship with her evil spirit. Speaking about the number of children they already have in the marriage, the prophet cautioned them to exercise control as marriage is more for companionship than anything else.
The prophet never brought the other couple out but planned that they would be delivered in the prayer line.

DAUGHTER SPRINKLES WITCHCRAFT IN HER FAMILY
The Okechukwu family of six children and the parents came out to narrate to the bewildered congregation how one of the daughters, initiated into witchcraft in the school, brought the evil spirit to the family and relayed it from one child to the other. She gave the witchcraft to her younger sister who, in turn, gave it to their brother, who thereafter went into unrestrained incest with her. The brother, Emmanuel became initiated after eating a bun given to him by his sister and caught the spirit of lust. He had been much feared by the other siblings because of his habitual aggressiveness. The bun was given to her by her friend to eat and she then gave it to Emmanuel, her brother as a way of gaining control over him. The rest of the children also got the witchcraft relayed to them. The eldest girl told her listeners how the schoolmate who gave her the bun came to her in the home and both disappeared into the forest. After advising her to hate her parents, the girl also gave her something like blood to drink and she became abnormal, seeing dead people who laughed at her.
After blaming the father for not effectively controlling his children, the prophet delivered the family. The father was also delivered of a sickness which had disturbed him for some time.

HUSBAND ACCUSES WIFE OF WITCHCRAFT

Mr Achukwu, wife and daughter

Mr Achukwu mounted the platform with his wife and their pregnant daughter and accused the wife of witchcraft. He said that the only son, among the nine children they have, died adding that the woman was the cause. The boy he chose to adopt also died after two months. He said their children were like men facially but had the female organ to mean that the wife changed them from males to females to deprive the husband of male children. Asked how else he knew that his wife was a witch, the man said the wife could stay stiff for over twelve hours, though breathing, only to activate herself later. In her defence, the wife said she was not a witch and that people had told her that her husband was a cultist but she did not believe them. She also added that in his desperation for a male child, he met a widow who bore a male child for him but he could not claim the male child as their culture did not allow that. The prophet exonerated each of witchcraft or cultism saying that the devil just wanted to destroy the family and he delivered them.

STELLA ANTHONY HEALED OF ULCER IN THE PRAYER LINE
As the prophet and the wise men were about going to the prayer line, the prophet asked the cameraman to display on the screen those waiting for healing and deliverance. Many of those displayed were victims of ulcer in various putrid stages. Taking the case of Stella for illustration, the prophet revealed how she came to The SCOAN prayer line with one foot seriously attacked by ulcer which caused decay in the leg. The leg, putrid and filled with puss, sent out abominable stench. The woman had been to many hospitals for cure but without a solution. It was at this stage that she came for prayer line and Wiseman Harry prayed for her. Today, Stella is completely healed and she came out from the congregation to confirm her healing in a testimony.

Mr&Mrs. James

HEALED OF MENTAL DISORDER THROUGH WRISTBAND
After many unsuccessful attempts in various hospitals to get his wife cured of mental disorder, Mr James discharged her from a Kaduna hospital and flew her to The SCOAN for God’s attention. Arriving in The SCOAN late on Thursday, they could not be screened for the prayer line. However, some good brothers who saw the wife in her terrible condition took pity on her and surrendered two Wristbands to her. Wearing one on her wrist and the other on her foot, she immediately felt the power of God. She sensed unusual churning in her stomach and she soon started to vomit. She regained normalcy of behaviour after the vomiting. The nightmares and sighting of dead people which characterized her dreams stopped and she now sleeps like a day old baby. Even without seeing the prophet, Mrs Esther James regained sanity within seconds of arrival in The SCOAN to tell the listening world that wherever God is involved, healing is like breathing. In her testimony she recalled the efforts of her husband to have her cured in the past and the miraculous healing she got in The Synagogue, thanking everybody and God for the wonderful healing.

Mrs. Janet and Husband

ANOINTING WATER BREAKS DEBRA’S BARRENNESS
For thirteen years, the Debra family have been in the grip of barrenness in their marriage as the wife’s tube was said to be blocked and the man had low sperm count. Their way to parenthood opened when a friend of theirs fetched the Anointing Water from The SCOAN for them. Praying over the Anointing Water as required, they administered it to themselves before meeting as husband and wife. That very month, the wife, Janet became pregnant as confirmed by scan. The family flew from their home in Ghana to give their testimony. In her testimony, Janet thanked God for making them meet His anointed servant, Prophet T. B. Joshua to dislodge barrenness from their union and put it in the past.

WRISTBAND RESTORES LAWRENCE’S HEARING
Mr Lawrence Oheri is a Nigerian from Imo State living in Gabon. For quite some time, he had had the problem of hearing which brought him to The SCOAN after all efforts to regain hearing elsewhere failed. Collecting the Anointing Wristband and wearing it after prayer, he went to bed as usual. Waking up at 5.30 am, he noticed some water from his ears in his pillow. Thanks to the Lord, his clogged ear had opened and water was draining out of it by the power of the Holy Spirit through the agency of the Wristband. We thank God for this miraculous healing.

ANOINTING WATER STOPS SMOKING HABIT

Mr Lawrence Oheri

Chief Daniel Adumah of Anambra State described himself as a chain-smoker who had regaled himself in various brands of cigarette for 46 years. As his son and wife came to The SCOAN for prayer, he asked them to fetch him the Anointing Water which they did. After praying over the Anointing Water, he drank it and sensed its cooling effect in his heart, lungs and other parts of the body. He also noticed that the long experienced pain in the lungs was no more. The long term effect is that the urge for smoking in him has vanished and he avoids smoking and smokers after 46 years of friendship with cigarette.

Mrs Tientcheu Charlotte

20 YEARS BLEEDING ROOTED OUT BY WRISTBAND
Mrs Tientcheu Charlotte had for twenty years had a fibroid problem which caused her to bleed all that time. Having gone for surgery but without achieving her goal, she collected The Wristband, prayed over it and wore it . Two days after wearing it, she felt the sensation of heat in her body. In a way nobody can explain the bleeding stopped. With God in your matter, healing is like breathing. Today, Charlotte is a free woman whose bleeding in the past is now confined to history.

Emmanuel Peter

ANOINTING WRISTBAND DISLODGES EMMANUEL FROM CAGE OF POVERTY
Emmanuel Peter had for six years been caged and always saw himself as such in his dreams. The reality of the matter was that he never saw any progress in his life in spite of his efforts. It was for this reason that he collected the Anointing Wristband and wore it. The night he wore it, he still saw himself in a cage and he appealed to two ladies for help but these refused to offer him any help. He then saw some men who took him to a shrine. There, in the shrine, a lady drew his attention to the Anointing Wristband on his wrist. He looked at the Wristband and saw fire in it. As if this look reminded the Wristband of its role, the fire in it fell the lady at the same time burning a prowling cobra and the shrine to ashes to usher Emmanuel into freedom from the cage.

MASS PRAYER FREES WIFE FROM MARINE HUSBAND
Of all the unusual incidents in the mass prayer, that of a woman who came from Lokoja to worship in the SCOAN deserves mentioning because of the helplessness and suffering many men experience in the hands of spiritual husbands. Indisputably, many men are attracted by beauty in women as they seek the hand of one in marriage. Unfortunately in most cases, such beautiful women cannot deliver the joy of marriage to their husbands because of their unholy alliance with spiritual husbands to whom they give all their love. These spiritual beings go beyond borders to enjoy marital union on earth with human beings. In the case of the woman from Lokoja, she was doubly married to a spiritual husband and her earthly husband in Lokoja. The earthly husband had taken her to places in the hope of delivering her from barrenness here on earth. Meanwhile, she said she had two boys for her spiritual husband and even though she also knew very well that her husband’s efforts to have children by her were in vain, she accompanied this husband to any place of his choice in search for their not-to-be-gotten child. Meanwhile, she loves the spiritual husband as much as she hates the earthly husband in Lokoja who does everything for her to ensure her comfort on earth. She pays the earthly husband with suffering and hatred.
Fearing that she would be caught by the wise men, she avoided going for prayer line. However, in course of the mass prayer with all the pervading anointing, the spiritual husband helplessly disassociated himself from her and asked her to surrender. It was at that stage that she started crying for deliverance and saying all the facts here. After the deliverance, she recalled and regretted her wickedness to her earthly husband from whom she had withheld her love and refused to bear children.
