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.

The SCOAN Saturday and Sunday services attested to the power of the living and resurrected Christ at work in the life of Prophet TB Joshua and the five wise men as person after person were set free from their past and released into their divine destinies.

Later, Prophet TB Joshua spoke specifically on Sunday on the subject: Christianity is a relationship, part of which he had introduced on Saturday. Using Matthew 22:1-4 and 37-8; John 21:15 and 1 Corinthians 12:7-8 as proof texts, he said Christianity is not a religion but a relationship and that Jesus Christ came to restore the relationship and fellowship between God and man. He said relationship exists where there is love. Nothing will keep us on course like a deep love for God. Nothing will carry us through hard times like a sincere devotion to Christ. When there is no money in the pocket, it is the love for Christ that will keep us on course. He said ministry does not begin with a relationship with people. It begins with a relationship with God and that relationship overflows to people. And when you have a relationship with people, you need to know where that relationship flows from because relationships begin with God and then to people.

TBJ

The prophet added that the main thing about Christianity is not the work we do but the relationship we maintain and the atmosphere produced by that relationship. He said supernatural gifts given to a minister are different from man’s natural talents, abilities and education. He said the principal challenge we face in the church today is that people use their natural gifts for God’s Work and that has reduced God’s Kingdom to human knowledge. Moreover, he continued that Jesus never asked Peter if he was a gifted speaker, a talented leader, or whether he had seminary training or Bible knowledge. According to the prophet, those things are important but they are not the issue. The issue is quite simple: The basic qualification for a lasting ministry is found in Jesus’ question, “Do you love Me?” In other words, do you have a relationship with Me?

Aside the significant sermon are works of prophecy, charity and moving testimonies by worshippers at the church from the world over among which were the following:

HENRY CHUKWU ONYEAMA – EXPERIENCED VISA BREAKTHROUGH THROUGH ANOINTING WATER

The Enugu state born Nigerian businessman had experienced poverty, dejection and stagnation in his life for years. He even sold some of his personal belongings such as cars, television and even the mattress he slept on, just to recover from the stroke of economic uncertainty. But he soon laid hands on the Anointing Water as an avid viewer of Emmanuel TV with which he prayed and ministered and after six days, was invited into a business which instantly fetched him one million naira in profits. Stung by the quest to further his education, he had applied for admission in Ukraine but at the Nigerian Embassy, he was denied a visa.

HENRY

He also attempted to go to South Africa to accomplish his dream but this hit the rock. He then wrote to ask for an invitation by a business concern in South Korea, ministering the Anointing Water on his documents.

After four days, contrary to the normal practice, he had gone for an interview at the Korean Embassy and was successful.

 

With his visa at the ready, he hopes to leave Nigeria for Korea in a few days. He advised that in every situation, people should look up to God and that the Anointing Water should be seen and appreciated as a special gift from God for this generation of believers.

FELICIA NGWUTA – DELIVERED FROM EVIL FORCES THROUGH ANOINTING WATER

Mrs Ngwuta told the congregation in church how God dealt with evil forces plaguing her peace in her own home. She said she used to experience visits of snakes in her dreams. FELICIAHer well kept money in her wardrobe was always getting lost and there was a time she was even shot an in the dream. She was so tormented and has to visit The SCOAN, during which she ministered on herself and the entire house.

She was surprised to later discover a dead snake in her wardrobe even when there was no outlet through which it could have come in.

Displaying the photograph of the decayed snake, which did not smell inside her wardrobe, she said since then, her money has stopped getting lost and she has not experienced any bad dreams. Cheerfully, she implored people to go to God to solve the riddles of their lives because solutions lie only with Him.

 

HEALED OF STROKE THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

This oil businessman had experienced a devastating stroke but was triumphantly restored to health through the Anointing Water. When under the affliction, he had journeyed to The SCOAN from the Republic of Benin on 4th October, 2012. His vessel was expected to go for inspection but his health mattered more to him. He had visited different hospitals that had rejected him as he could neither stand nor talk. The stroke had affected him physically to the degree that part of his mouth was bent owing to the affected muscles on his face and mentally, when his wife and family visited him, he did not recognize their presence for four days. His wife prayed for him using the Anointing Water and in the name of the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua, and he recovered the use of his hands; his bent mouth was restored and he could speak once again. The doctors later confirmed him medically fit, for which he showed his medical report as evidence. An astonishing revelation came when, during his testimony, he admitted he knew he was lucky to survive as his elder sister who similarly suffered a stroke attack three months after his, had died. Finally, he concluded with the word of advice that the Anointing Water had become his spiritual battleaxe and weapon of war. Full of joy, his wife testified that the Anointing Water shows that God is ultimate in power and that people should trust in God and run to Him, when faced by challenges beyond their control.

ANTHONY AGUNU – SAVED FROM A GRUESOME ROAD ACCIDENT THROUGH ANOINTING WATER

Mr Agunu based in the Republic of South Africa, decided to visit his home in Nigeria in December of 2012 but not without first visiting The SCOAN on 27th December where he was privileged to receive the Anointing Water .

MR ANTHONY AGUNU

On the 31st of December, he travelled to his home State of Delta but forgot to pray and minister the Anointing Water before embarking on the journey. During his trip, another car moving out of control at high speeds smashed into his own vehicle.

As they were shouting Jesus, they discovered that though the car was badly damaged beyond repair, neither Mr Agunu nor any of his passengers were injured. As he showed the picture of the crash scene, he thanked God and encouraged others not to toy with the idea of embracing and using the Anointing Water.

 

 

MRS LUCKY EDWARD – DELIVERED FROM 32 YEARS OF SMOKING AND DRINKING THROUGH ANOINTING WATER

She said that she had smoked for some 32 years, 23 of which had actually driven her to smoke marijuana to stem the emotional pain she encountered in her marital home. The problem had started at the age of 17 when her schoolmates told her that in order to be cool she had to smoke and drink alcohol.

MRS LUCKY

She explained that the friends were the most popular in her school and she desired to be seen like them, therefore she engaged in their addictive behaviours. Initially, she coughed and spluttered on the cigarette smoke but was told it was normal and as she took more, she would enjoy it the more. The addiction formed and she got to the level of being able to consume four packs of cigarettes every day. After marrying her husband and upon falling pregnant, her mind began to change and she wanted to drop the foul habit but found to her dismay that she was unable to.

Then she began to move from churches to prayer houses to get delivered from the chain but without success until she was introduced to Emmanuel TV where she became convinced that the power of God in the Anointing Water was real.

 

On getting her own bottle of Anointing Water and ministering it to herself, she went to sleep. It was a week later that she realized that for the past week, she had not even the urge to smoke a cigarette or take a single drink since ministering the Anointing Water. Today, she is full of gratitude to God for her deliverance and advises that people should go to real men of God to solve their problems.

MR GODFREY – SAVED FROM A TRAILER CRASH THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

In 2012, Mr Godfrey had visited the church and received two Anointing Stickers both of which he placed on his truck as a professional transporter. On one such long haul journey, Mr Godfrey saw in the distance that a tanker had had an accident blocking the adjacent lane for oncoming traffic.

MR GODFREY

 

His own lane however, being unobstructed thought little of it and continued to accelerate. Suddenly, with horrific speed, a large speeding lorry crossed into Mr Godfrey’s lane while trying to pass round the obstacle and collided with Mr Godfrey’s truck slamming the two vehicles into the already crashed tanker with such horrible force that the drivers section or head of the oncoming lorry was thrown into the air and across the street.

 

The conductor died on impact and the lorry driver was in a critical condition, but at the moment of impact, the Anointing Sticker Mr Godfrey kept on the shelf of his truck floated down to land over his chest and both he and his co-pilot came out of the valley of the shadow of death without a scratch. Without words to express his appreciation to the God of TB Joshua, he advised all that if God was with you, no weapon fashioned against you would prosper and that God’s protection was the only protection.

MR AND MRS AMADIKE – HOTEL RESCUED FROM ATTACKERS THROUGH EMMANUEL TV

The middle aged couple run a popular hotel as a business outfit and in each of its guestrooms is installed the Emmanuel TV cable to allow all the visitors to view the wonders of God as they enjoyed their stay with them. MR&MRS AMADIKEIn the dead of night, strange noises were heard throughout the hotel as unknown gunmen raided the hotel, breaking down doors in search of the proprietor, Mr and Mrs Amadike, to demand their money or their lives. The couple locked themselves inside their room and prayed with Prophet TB Joshua watching Emmanuel TV as the rampage continued. When the invaders could not find the couple, in the course of their fury, they broke one of the window panes of Mr Amadike’s car parked in the hotel forecourt. Instantly, the car alarm went off and confusion descended upon the raiders like a heavy blanket thinking security guards were upon them, they took to their heels only to be caught by patrolling policemen who took them into custody and seized their ammunition. The couple advised that Emmanuel TV was no ordinary station and people that stick to it as their channel of choice would surely reap the reward.

MR AND MRS ROMANUS UDEAKU – DELIVERED FROM BARRENNESS THROUGH PROPHECY

A couple came to testify of the irresistible power of prophecy, telling the worldwide audience that Prophet TB Joshua had prophesied to Mrs Udeaku that her underwear had once gone missing and since that time, she had suffered irregular menstruation which was the cause of the couples 16 years of infertility.

MR&MRS ROMANUS UDEAKU (BARRENNESS)

The couple had gotten to the point of desperation that they were considering adopting a child but two weeks after confirming the prophecy of the man of God to be true, Mrs Udeaku conceived and has since delivered a beautiful girl named Precious.

 

Mr Romanus Udeaku said that at the age of 53 this was his first child even though it was not his first marriage and he had faced the same problem in his first step in life. With the soft smile of glorious vindication on their faces, the couple simply said if you want God to do the same for you, just believe Him through ordinary circumstances. He is not a man that disappoints.

 

TWO ZAMBIAN PILGRIMS REWARDED FOR THEIR FAITH

Another chapter of testimony closed in the annals of history as two pilgrims who braved the danger of travelling by road to The SCOAN in Nigeria from Zambia in Southern Africa, a journey taking them 44 days to complete, stood before the congregation with the happy faces and hearts of those whom the Lord has located in His mercy and favour. The men recounted their experience of the bitter trials they faced on the way to the church prompted by their financial hardship which had cast doubtful shadows over the furtherance of their education with all their efforts hitting nothing but the rocks of frustration. TWO ZAMBIAN BROTHERS2Spurred on by their keen interest for the works of charity performed on Emmanuel TV, the friends stirred with radical faith, departed on their mission passing through seven countries including CAR, Tanzania, Kenya, Mali, South Sudan and Nigeria. In a nutshell, the hazards of their journey had taken their toll surviving on bread and water where it was available, encountering hostile natives, rough border checkpoints, wild animal attacks and insensitive bystanders but through they were silent in their trouble, they did not silence their faith and hope and by God’s grace, they made it to The SCOAN. Prophet TB Joshua remarked concerning the determined duo that he was touched by their faith and on behalf of the ministry and Emmanuel TV Partners gave them each 2000 USD; flight tickets back to Zambia and his promise to support their educational pursuits. The men who made a journey of 44 days would return home in just one spoke to youth all over the world that once they had made a heart decision, they should be determined concerning their future and the sky would be their limits.

MR ALEX ALABA AND HIS SIX CHILDREN

Mr Alex and his children were given the sum of half a million naira to support their upkeep and education as they went back to continue their lives in the peace and comfort of reconciliation in Christ Jesus. The man of God declared that each of the children would be awarded scholarships and were to decide if they would move to live with their father or stay with the family who had raised them thus far. PASTOR ALABA2

However, the former Pastor Alaba was advised to return to his career of driving and remove the title Pastor from his name for the time being unless God Almighty spoke again on the contrary.

 

Personally thanking each of the guardians of Mr Alaba’s children, Prophet TB Joshua said he would see each of them in his office to discuss the future and give a special blessing for their love, care and understanding shown in this unusual situation.

 

An extraordinary end to an extraordinary situation, God Almighty has once again proved that nothing is impossible to those who believe and sending the families on their way the man of God gave each person three bags of rice.

THE OBASI FAMILY DELIVERANCE AND RESTORATION

Mrs Shelly Obasi and her family, who had been delivered from the destructive use of demonic entities which had given them evil power to seduce, destroy and steal from those who had not learnt to walk in the Spirit in Christ Jesus. FAMILY OBASI

The mother and daughter, Princess who had both manifested during previous services at The SCOAN and were delivered from the hands of the devil testified of how the peace of God had enveloped their hearts and now their desire was to return to South Africa, the children to continue in their education, and their mother, Shelly, to return to her business, grateful for the freedom they had received in the name of Jesus Christ. After providing flight tickets for the family of five, the man of God TB Joshua also gave the family N600,000 to launch them into their new lives. The tearful, quivering voice of Princess Obasi thanked the man of God and Emmanuel TV Partners on behalf of the family.

MRS LENA OFOSU – AN UNNERVING ACCOUNT OF THE REALITY BEING A WIFE TO A MARINE SPIRIT

Mrs Lena Ofosu, stood before the congregation while a cassette was played documenting how the Emmanuel TV Team accompanied her on her return to her shrine in Ghana where she had practiced as a wife to a spiritual husband, spiritualist and queen mother in the marine kingdom. Now, delivered from the spiritual husband that had plagued her life since birth, Mrs Ofosu exposed the kingdom of the devil and the many ritual practices she had been involved in since the age of 14.LENA OFOSU

She described and demonstrated the way she was taught to serve her spiritual husband and recounted the disturbing visits and their destructive effects on her life and marriages causing death, poverty, failure and immorality. Then, Lena Ofosu went on to divulge the secrets of the spiritualists and their demonic influence on society, her having been released from their dark tentacles.

The Goliath in her life had truly been defeated and disgraced by the light of Jesus Christ and she told the congregation not to doubt what they saw in The SCOAN because it was real; she was a real agent of darkness and had done so much damage. Therefore, others should learn now to maintain a strong relationship with God and never let Him go.

INDONESIA AND CURRENT PROPHESIES

The man of God, Prophet TB Joshua then reminded the worldwide congregation of some of his recent prophecies, some of which had recently come to pass including the horrendous flooding in Indonesia and the reiteration of some of his prophesied made on New Year’s Day and a few new prophecies to the nations of France, Germany, Nigeria and the United States of America, further details of which would soon show on Emmanuel TV as the events came closer.

The man of God reminded all and sundry that prophecy was to expose the intrigues, plan and strategy of the devil and stop them by coming together to pray. Clearly, the response of a humble believing soul is to take the Word from the mouth of the Lord and commit it to God in prayer for His favour and mercy. He, who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches.

Emmanuel! Sunday 25th November 2012 was another wonderful day in God’s presence at The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria. The service started with the prayer line with the five Wise Men ministering prayer in the power of the Holy Spirit to hundreds of people from all over the world. After this was a time of faith-building testimonies from those who had come to The SCOAN in the past and received the Anointing Water.

SPIRIT OF DEATH – EXPOSED AND EXPELLED!

The first testimony was that of Mrs Ohora Osim Enyieka who shared an extraordinary story of how death had been conquered in her family after ministering the Anointing Water. Mrs Ohora Osim Enyieka explained that a member of her family had died at a similar time every year between 2006 and 2010 through mysterious sicknesses. Each death was pre-empted by the arrival of a strange bird on the roof of her house, one which locals in her area confirmed was symbolic of the idols in the area and messengers of spiritualists and witch doctors bent on destruction. Frightened that she was next in line for diabolic termination, Mrs … decided to visit The SCOAN in 2011, where she was privileged to receive the Anointing Water. As the annual date of death loomed large, Mrs Ohora Osim Enyieka kept ministering the Anointing Water. One fateful day, upon hearing the arrival of the menacing bird on the roof of her house, an ominous sign of impending calamity, she promptly began ministering the Anointing Water. The bird took off immediately and the year ended fatality-free for the ecstatic family.

Upon coming to The SCOAN to share this initial testimony, Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke prophetically to them that they would still have another encounter with the evil spirit masquerading in the form of a bird. He stressed that when the bird arrived this time, after ministering the Anointing Water, it would be unable to leave and would therefore be captured by God’s power.

Nearly a year later, Mrs Ohora Osim Enyieka explained how one day, as one of the birds alighted on her roof, she suddenly felt as if the blood within her body was being drained slowly and life was seeping away from her. She fell into a comatose state and family members began fearing the worst. However, in her dream, she saw Prophet T.B. Joshua place the Anointing Water in her hands and command her to rise up. Upon her miraculous recovery, the spiritual attack intensified as the bird in question inexplicably entered her house and perched atop a curtain rail in one of the rooms.

Utterly confident that her victory was at hand, Mrs Ohora Osim Enyieka organised a local cameraman to come and then, in battle-mode, entered the room with the demonic bird armed only with her Anointing Water. She began wildly spraying the Anointing Water and praying in Jesus’ name for every demonic force behind the deaths in her family to be broken. As if in a drunken stupor, the bird, without anyone physically touching it, fell to the ground. The family returned to The SCOAN to share this wonderful testimony, even coming with the ‘owl’ that had succumbed to God’s power in the Anointing Water. Where oh death is your sting? Death has been swallowed up in victory!

KIDNAPPED CHILD RETURNED

The next testimony was that of Mrs Isioma Omene who came with her family to testify to God’s protection and power in their lives through the ministration of the Anointing Water. On 10th October 2012, having closed her shop for the day, a car had suddenly blocked her own car on its way home. Little did she know that it was a co-ordinated effort to kidnap a member of her family. As her husband exited the car to ascertain what was happening, suddenly the sound of bullets shattered the silence. With her husband running for dear life, Mrs Omene struggled to hold her children close to her, knowing that it was a critical situation. As the kidnappers approached the car, all the family could do was pray. Her young daughter, Favour, lifted up her voice crying for God to protect her mother and siblings. Upon seeing the little girl’s bold prayers, the kidnappers turned their attention on her and cruelly snatched her from the clutches of Isioma.

The following day, the distraught family received a call from the kidnappers, demanding a ransom of

20 million naira be paid for her safe release. Failure to do so would, however, end in her execution. Unable to raise such an amount, Mrs Omene decided to visit The SCOAN to seek the face of God. As the service progressed, she shouted helplessly in the crowd, catching the attention of Prophet T.B. Joshua who asked her to wait behind after the service. He then gave her Anointing Water, asked her to be prayerful and spray the child’s photograph with it and assured her that she would be returned safely. Mrs Omene followed the instructions accordingly, believing God for Divine protection. Thirteen days after her capture, the kidnappers called Mr Omene and told him to meet them at an appointed area to release the child, as her incessant prayers were ‘disturbing them’. The father rushed to the designated spot and Favour was released without any ransom paid!

Favour, still recovering from the ordeal, told the touched congregation that she had been blindfolded and taken into a thick forest. She was warned not to pray in the name of Jesus but continued to sing and pray, remembering the songs she had learned at her school and the prayers she had watched on Emmanuel TV. She was neither given food nor water for two weeks and each time they found her on her knees in prayer, the kidnappers would flog her with the branch of a tree. She thanked God for saving her from the hands of her captives through the Anointing Water. The father, Hon. Godfrey also thanked Emmanuel TV and Prophet T.B. Joshua, stressing that after her release, the kidnappers were caught and are now in custody. His wife said that people should be faithful to God because with God, all things are possible.

SKIN MIRACULOUSLY RESTORED

Dr Enongene John shared a testimony to God’s transformative power in his life after using the Anointing Water. He had been sick for two years in Cameroon, resulting in a deteriorating skin condition that left him in constant pains, virtually immobile and jobless. Various hospitals he went to were unable to help as the creams and medications applied brought no seeming result. The skin condition on his legs worsened to the point where he was unable to wear shoes or socks and stayed most of his days indoors.

Being a viewer of Emmanuel TV, he started praying and fasting. A Good Samaritan who saw his condition and had just returned from a trip to The SCOAN, gave him the Anointing Water and encouraged him to spray the affected areas on his body. As Dr John began ministering the Anointing Water, his situation radically changed! The swelling and flayed skin on his legs disappeared and normal skin with a few scars were all that were left. He supernaturally regained his strength and after a two year hiatus due to the sickness, returned to his work. His wife, who accompanied him to share the testimony, said God’s power through the Anointing Water actually saved his life. He advised people to believe in God’s anointing in the life of Prophet T.B. Joshua that is also so mightily prevalent in the Anointing Water.

 

EIGHT YEARS OF BARRENNESS ERADICATED

Mr and Mrs Babalola came to The SCOAN with a powerful testimony of how God replaced their barrenness with fruitfulness after they had ministered the Anointing Water. Medically, Mrs Babalola had been diagnosed with tubal blockage and all forms of medical solution had been sought by the couple who had been looking for the fruit of the womb for eight years.

On visiting The SCOAN, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for them and they were given the Anointing Water. Today, they are proud parents to Esther Babalola! After her miraculous conception, Mrs Babalola continued to minister the Anointing Water throughout the course of her pregnancy. She delivered her baby safely and without complications. The husband had advised that people should always depend on God because He is above all! The wife said that women should learn to be patient when seeking for the fruit of the womb because God’s time is the best.

 

 

 

MENSTRUATION FLOWS FREELY AFTER THREE YEARS

Mrs Bitrus came all the way from Ghana to share her heart-warming testimony. Three years ago, her menstruation had suddenly ceased with no clear medical explanation. The ailment was accompanied by constant headaches, and the search for healing led Mrs Bitrus to hospitals and herbal centres across the country.

 

However, after being strengthened in her faith through viewing Emmanuel TV, Mrs Bitrus began to believe God for Divine restoration of her menstruation. She was privileged to receive the Anointing Water from a friend of hers and immediately sprayed it all over her body and into her mouth. Suddenly, she experienced a hot sensation in her stomach. It became almost unbearable and, running to the toilet, she was shocked to see that blood had started flowing! It was an instant miracle! She showed photographs to verify the veracity of her miraculous healing to the congregation, praising God and advising people to always depend on Him who is able to do abundantly, exceedingly above all we could ask or imagine.

PHENOMENAL BLESSING

Pastor Charles Lomba from Zambia was the next in line to share his testimony. The clergyman explained that he was experiencing stagnation and financial setback in his ministry and was embarrassed to be walking home from church weekly while some of his members drove by in their cars. He had prayed for others who had received rich blessings but seemed stuck in a cycle of limitation and setback. 

After visiting The SCOAN on August 22nd 2012, Pastor Lomba received an Anointing Sticker and declared that by faith, he would soon own a vehicle to enable him to place the Anointing Sticker on it. In bold faith, he even specified the type of vehicle he was praying for God to bless him with. Merely a week after returning from The SCOAN, a member of his church blessed him with not one but two new cars, one of which was the exact type he had requested from God! Full of happiness that his case had been touched by God’s anointing, he counselled the congregants and viewers worldwide on Emmanuel TV to have confidence that whatsoever had been prayed for by Prophet T.B. Joshua, could be used as a point of contact to release blessing and breakthrough into their lives.

 

 

 

WALKING WITHOUT HER WHEELCHAIR!

Mr and Mrs Cawkwell had travelled all the way from the United Kingdom to seek Divine healing at The SCOAN. Mrs Cawkwell had been diagnosed with Chronic Bronchitis and Cystic Fibrosis, an incurable disease that had weakened her body to the point where she was forced to move about in a wheelchair. In the course of last week’s service, her husband had cried out to God for healing as Prophet T.B. Joshua was passing by during the time of prophecy. Moved with compassion, Prophet T.B. Joshua stretched his hands towards her and commanded her to rise up and walk. To the astonishment and joy of the entire congregation, supernatural strength returned to Mrs Cawkwell’s limbs and she rose up from her wheelchair and walked unaided for the first time in two years!

Coming forward to testify, Mrs Cawkwell looked like a different person, as she walked comfortably forward with her beaming husband by her side. She was barely recognisable from the wheelchair-bound condition she had come to The SCOAN in last week. In his testimony, Mr Cawkwell explained how the sickness had taken over their lives for the past two years. He had to resign from his work as a security officer to attend to his wife and literally had to do everything for her.

However, upon seeing the miracles taking place daily at The SCOAN on Emmanuel TV, he was full of faith, with his wife, that if they came to The SCOAN, she would receive her total and complete healing. He described his amazement at seeing his wife walk after the prayers of Prophet T.B. Joshua and said her recovery since that point had been nothing short of phenomenal. He told viewers around the world on Emmanuel TV that the power of God he had witnessed in The SCOAN was real, tangible and life-changing, encouraging those oppressed with sickness to never give up or doubt God’s desire and ability to heal them.

His wife said that she felt the power of the Holy Spirit flow through her entire body as Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her. After she stood up to walk, she began to vomit substances that had been clogging up her lungs for many years. With her healing came a clear throat and the ability to communicate freely, which she had not experienced for years because of the sickness.

She testified that her journey to The SCOAN was clearly providential, as even before embarking on the flight, when her condition was very dire, she had seen Prophet T.B. Joshua praying for her in the dream, which had strengthened her faith. It was a wonderful testimony to God’s healing power still at work today and the congregation joined the couple in song and dance to rejoice with them!

SECRET OF FAITH

In the third part of a series titled, ‘Secret Of Faith’, Prophet T.B. Joshua expounded further on some profound Gospel truths. He explained that faith is something that comes spontaneously, not by force or external pressure. “Anything that comes by force is not faith. Faith is something that comes spontaneously, willingly. Don’t force me. If you force me to be a Christian by giving me whatever you want to give me or you adopt me as a child and give me everything, such Christianity cannot last. If you stop giving me those things, I will stop being a Christian. If you become a Christian because of the miracle you receive, what if there is no miracle tomorrow? You will stop being a Christian.” 

He further characterised faith and rest as being inseparable, citing Hebrews 4 as a Scriptural reference. “Whenever we truly believe, our hearts will be at rest. If our hearts are uneasy and restless, if we are afraid of this and that, if we are fearful and feeling lost, struggling with all our effort to plan, to resolve, to plead and ask for help, this shows we have not yet believed. When one believes, he is at rest. Therefore, when a person believes, he will no longer worry. He will leave it for God!”

Prophet T.B. Joshua further explained the necessity of living in God’s Word and receiving it in the midst of our hearts. “If a person has not received the teaching of the Scripture or the promise of the Holy Ghost in his heart, forcing him to do such acts is indeed a risk – because faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word. You must take God’s Word to heart; you must live in God’s Word. If you have taken God’s Word to heart, you can act it. It will by its very nature, change you and when it does, you will automatically find yourself acting. This kind of rest is very real, genuine and natural.”

Prophet T.B. Joshua concluded the profound message by challenging believers to examine their daily lives. “If we examine our daily lives, we will find out how much faith we have. Faith is manifested in the small things in our daily life. Do you know how much you need God?” He said that the problem faced by believers around the world today was that they believe they only need God for certain tasks or at certain times instead of realising that they need Him in literally everything.

After the songs of praise and worship by which the day’s service commenced were over, Wise Man Daniel proceeded to give the message entitled, ‘Trusting In Christ’s Suffering’ by which he reminded the congregation that Christ died on the Cross to provide our needs which he said were healing, deliverance, blessing among others. He cited 1st Peter 2:21-24 as his proof text. Dwelling on the significance of Palm Sunday, he averred that that the Lord’s instruction regarding the donkey was characteristically not vague. Jesus is a Man of vision who says what He means and means what He says. His was instruction in boldness, certainty, righteousness and power. His rebuke was for our peace. His death was miserable and His disciples must be ready to bear His cross. By His suffering there is assurance of life for us.

ANOINTING WATER STOPS ISSUE OF BLOOD
After the prophet’s usual introductory remarks about the new Anointing Water, there was a surge of congregants wishing to testify to the instrumentality of the Anointing Water. The first person to enjoy the opportunity of giving a testimony was Mrs Elizabeth Aghachiebonam of Ebonyi State, though resident in Abuja. Her problem, according to her, was the issue of blood for two years. She recounted the trouble her husband had taken to find a solution for her in hospitals and churches without hitting any success. The problem started as internal heat and generated pain all over her body making her pass through sleepless nights. While people would be sleeping at night, she would see herself restless and reeling in pain. Coming to The SCOAN on the Thursday preceding the Sunday of testimony, she said she received the Anointing Water immediately on arrival and administered it on herself in compliance with the instruction. As soon as she applied it, the bleeding stopped. She happily told the congregation that she had started enjoying her nightly sleep and comfort of body following the staunching of the blood. She seized the opportunity to advise her listeners to have faith in the Lord, their Creator who is always there for them in times of need.

ANOINTING WATER OBVIATES OPERATION
The next testimony was given by the Akhere family. Mrs Akhere had been told by her doctor that she would require operation to deliver her baby because of her tight cervix. She therefore visited The SCOAN to seek the face of the Lord. She received the Anointing Water and administered it on herself in prayer for safe delivery. After this, she delivered her baby safely without operation. They named their baby Harry after Wise Man Harry. They profusely thanked God with whom, they recognized, nothing is impossible.

ANOINTING WATER AND GOD’S OMNIPRESENCE
The omnipresent nature of God was demonstrated with the Anointing Water in many parts of the world. The video clips revealed the work of the Anointing Water in other countries of which Greece was one. The clip showed a woman, Shaze Qualli who for twelve years depended on crutches for movement. The Anointing Water dispelled all the darkness in her and delivered her from all pain and infirmity. Another man who depended on crutches for movement was also delivered in the same way. There were many who, hitherto in the throes of contrary spirits, fell down under the anointing of the Holy Spirit and were delivered with the administration of the Anointing Water.

A similar feat was revealed in Ghana where a woman who had not been able to walk for years was declared free by an evangelist spraying the Anointing Water on her and she responded immediately by standing up to walk. A young man was also freed from evil spirits and he thanked God having been delivered through the medium of the Anointing Water. Mr John, a sergeant in the Ghanaian army, had for five years been incapacitated because of an injury he sustained in an accident. Spraying the new Anointing Water on him, an evangelist declared him free and he resumed walking immediately.

ANOINTING WATER RESTORES HEAD TO SHAPE
While the congregation was engrossed watching these miracles from other countries, an evangelist in The SCOAN had seen a young man in the church arranged in the prayer line because of a development in his head which made the head assume a very abnormal shape. The evangelist proceeded to spray the new Anointing Water on the head and, soon after, pus began to ooze from the head miraculously. In no time the head regained its normal shape after all the pus had come out. This was possibly the greatest miracle of the day as the evacuation of the pus left no mark or scar on the head after restoring the head to shape.

MARITAL UNDERSTANDING ACHIEVED
The next was the reconciliation of Mr and Mrs Elizabeth Aghachiebonam as hinted in the previous service. The next paragraph entitled MISUNDERSTANDING WORDS OF PROPHECY was their story in a nutshell at the end of service the week before. But to the glory of God, the couple reappeared on the platform this Sunday to thank God for their successful reconciliation and for the grace of understanding and appreciating each other the more as a couple. The very striking element of the reconciliation was the dream, Stella, the wife had in which she was told by Prophet T. B. Joshua to remove the ring and bangle on her hand. Contrary to her thinking that she never had those ornaments on her body to remove, the prophet proceeded beyond her skin into her bone to dislodge those ornaments which were an attestation to her union with a spiritual husband. The removal of these ornaments by the prophet marked a turning point in her marital relationship with IK, her earthly husband. The prophet once more appeared to her in a second dream and advised her to relate well to her husband and make ‘forgiveness’ a watchword in their marriage as there is no perfect person or relationship on earth. By the time she wanted to react to the prophet in the dream, he had vanished having laid a formidable spiritual foundation for the marriage. In his reaction, Mr Ikechukwu thanked the prophet for the effectual reconciliation. He added that they had been to the Mountain to pray in the effort to restore peace and love to their marriage. He once more thanked God and the man of God for the restored peace in their marriage.

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 prophecies issued to them. In the said repartee between Wise Man Christopher and Mrs Ezekwelome,the latter corrected the wise man erroneously about her 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, Egypt 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.

MAN DELIVERED FROM IMPOTENCE
Mr Ameni Shabani of Congo DRC mounted the platform to confirm his deliverance from impotence last Sunday during the service. He had lost his wife to a houseboy because of his inability to dose sexual gratification to her. He lost his sexual virility when he was made to drink some concoction and wash himself with the water. He said his wife accused her of not finding time for her but added that he spent all his time looking for money for his wife in order to make the home comfortable. Both his wife and the houseboy took advantage of his loss of virility to redefine their relationship and started a sexual intimacy resulting in the loss of the wife to the houseboy. Mr Shabani added that his eloped wife later told him that only one of the two children they had together was his. It was for that reason he decided to leave both children for her till when he hoped to establish his paternity by DNA. Both ex-wife and houseboy now live together in South Africa. In answering the prophet’s question, Shabani stated that it was painful to lose his wife to a houseboy but in his state of loss of manhood then, there was nothing he could do. He was however happy for his deliverance which has put him in a position to consider getting married again. He expressed the hope of coming to The SCOAN after marriage on ‘a thank you mission’ with his new wife. He thanked God and the man of God for his restoration.

INTREPID JOURNEY TO SEE PROPHET
The next testimony was given by a young man, Mr Jeff Katanga from Zambia who came all the way from Zambia crossing not less than seven countries in a very long, tortuous and dangerous journey to Nigeria. The young man in question lost both parents recently in quick succession and found himself the caretaker of his siblings. The only hope for him in the present situation when he suddenly became the father of his siblings was Prophet T. B. Joshua. He saw the prophet as the only man who could offer him and his siblings financial help, going by what he had gleaned from Emmanuel TV. It was for that reason that he borrowed money from a widow and travelled from Zambia through Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Sudan, Chad and Cameroon to Nigeria. He particularly had challenges in Sudan which was half way between his country and Nigeria because of the civil war there. He was encouraged in his state of penury and physical exhaustion by the fact that if he could get to the Prophet, his condition would change for the better. He spent a total of thirty days on the way before getting to Nigeria on 19th January 2011. Unlike what many would do, he never wanted to shout to the man of God for help but decided to remain prayerful and fasting till God would reveal him to the prophet. He had decided not to be led by his situation because, as he learnt from Emmanuel TV, in every situation God is saying something. He deliberately took refuge in the vicinity of the church till God would reveal him in his plight to the prophet. Truly, when the prophet became aware of him, he welcomed him with the words, ‘You are in your Father’s house’ and promised him that when he would go back, he would enjoy a flight in contradistinction to the risky manner in which he had travelled to Nigeria. In response to the question on what he would have done supposing he never saw the prophet on arrival, he said he would have nigerianized rather than repeat that ordeal back to Zambia. The man of God praised him for his faith, courage and dogged will to succeed in life assuring him that he could see a bright future for him. The man of God however made it clear that his warm reception of the young man should not serve as an incentive for other young men to embark on such risky journeys. Assuring the congregation of prompt resumption of prophetic worship at 10 am the following day, he piloted the service to a close.
