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

PROPHET T B JOSHUA

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

 

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

WISEMAN DANIEL

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

 

TESTIMONIES GALORE!

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

 

IMMIGRATION STAMPEDE VICTIM’S MIRACULOUS RECOVERY

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

ImageImage

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

 

THE SURPRISE SUNDAY CALL

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

Image

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

 

AFTER 60 HORRIBLE YEARS, BEDWETTING SURRENDERS

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

Image

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

 

DARK SECRETS OF FREEMASONRY EXPOSED

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

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

 

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

 

WHEELCHAIR-BOUND MAN SMILES AGAIN

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

ImageImageImageImage

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

 

FROM JOBLESSNESS TO JOB CREATOR

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

Image

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

 

“WHERE ARE THE NEEDLES?” – MEDICAL MYSTERY SOLVED BY GOD

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

ImageImageImage

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

ImageImage

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

 

WHOLE FAMILY DELIVERED FROM SPIRIT OF PROSTITUTION

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

ImageImage

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

 

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

 

MIRACLE FLAG OF GOD

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

Image

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

 

  SIGNATURE OF GOD!

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

Image

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

 

CONFESSIONS OF A PROFESSIONAL THIEF

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

Image

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

Image

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

 

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

 

CONFESSIONS OF A NOTORIOUS WITCHDOCTOR

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

ImageImage

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

 

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

 

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

Prophet TB JoshuaLast Sunday’s service was another awe-inspiring experience for those that congregated at The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria and viewers of Emmanuel TV. Prophet T.B. Joshua preached and taught the Gospel with power, emphasising on the need for ministers of God and Christians to recognise that demons are responsible for their calamities. He said fighting such entities, therefore, needs to be spiritual or the battle will be in futility.

Prophet T.B. Joshua said, “If we fail to realise that there are powers that cause people to be bowed down in bondage, we are fighting the wrong battle. You know what I mean by bondage or poverty. When it comes, it arrests you; it ties you down. Bondage could be temptation, infirmity, all kinds of sickness, crisis, challenges or the situation you are facing and keep talking about. When you fight the wrong battle, the battle will continue”.

Commenting on true Christianity, the prophet said that religious people are without spirituality whereas Christians are born of the Spirit of God. “We are only made Christians by living in the Word of God and by the Word living in us. We are made in our hearts to be Christians. That is, Christianity lies in the heart,” he said. Later, he led mass prayer during which contrary spirits tormenting people’s lives were exposed and cast out at the mention of the name, Jesus Christ.

 WISEMAN RACINE

Wise Man Racine had earlier opened the service with the message: Put on The New Man. The message was a call on Christians to cast away their old self and become new creations in Christ Jesus through being born again. He emphasized that no matter how one conditioned oneself from childbirth, one needs to be born again.

“We need to put on the new man, the new Self who is renewed in knowledge, wisdom, glory, ability, strength, power and grace in the image of his Creator.  We put on the new man by renewing of our mind with God’s Word and submitting our body to the authority of that Word. When you believe in Christ-Jesus, the Son of the Living God, you become a possessor of the Father’s nature. The Christian, having been born again, puts on the new man- Jesus Christ,” he said, citing a number of Books including John 5:14, Ephesians 4:22-24, Galatians 5:16,25, and Acts 11:26, among others.

 TESTIMONIES

Many people who received the divine touch of God in various areas of their lives through The SCOAN came on Sunday to glorify His mightiness and thank Him for His everlasting faithfulness. Below are just a few of the testimonies:

CLOSED DOORS SWING OPEN

KATERINA & EMMANUEL JOSHUA FROM UKMr and Mrs Emmanuel Joshua Peter who reside in the UK came to testify to the greatness of God as Healer and Provider of His people. Mr Peter told his story of how poverty hit him while living in his native country of Nigeria. While he was struggling with life, he was involved in a road accident and injured his knee. His aunt advised him to visit The SCOAN for God’s intervention. During mass prayer, as Prophet T.B. Joshua was praying, he received his healing. A few weeks later he was granted a visa to Germany where favours followed him everywhere he went. He got a job and his salary increased every month. Two years later, he married his sweetheart and they continued praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV.  Although his employer promised to make him manager of the company, he decided to move to the UK and God established him in business there. He started congregating with The SCOAN fellowship in London and since then, the fountain of blessings has never ceased. He was able to build a big house and drives a brand new car.

 12 HORRIBLE YEARS OF BARRENNESS SMASHED

12 YEARS BARRENNESS

12 YEARS BARRENNESS

Humiliated by years of childlessness, Chief and Mrs Anthony Agalivie from Delta, Nigeria donned unmistakable smiles as they stepped forward to testify how God had intervened in their lives. They had been literally written off as potential parents. For 12 years after their wedding, they cried and moaned over their failure to have a baby. They travelled near and far – from one witchdoctor to another and from one church to the next – during which huge sums of money were extorted from them. Chief Agalivie counted over 100 witchdoctors and spiritualists he had visited, all in a futile struggle for the fruit of the womb. Mrs Agalivie described the years as a period of agony and shame. They had shed tears in the closed doors of their bedroom until their eyes ran dry.

Strangely for the couple, doctors could not diagnose anything wrong. Whenever Mrs Agalivie conceived, she would lose the pregnancy. In 2012, she was diagnosed with a hormonal imbalance. One day, as she watched Emmanuel TV, she saw a woman of 53 years testify how she had conceived and delivered a child after using the Anointing Water.  She realised that and sought the divine their case was not unredeemable if they attended a living church touch of God through His anointed servant. In May 2013, she came with her husband to The SCOAN during which the demon behind their childlessness was exposed and they received deliverance.

That night, Mrs Agalivie had a dream. She saw that they were in The SCOAN and a child walked from the altar to her and said, “Give me your hand. I am an Angel sent to you from God to deliver you from barrenness”. When she woke up, she was filled with joy. That month, after meeting with her husband, she became pregnant. She showed her pregnancy to the congregation as evidence of God’s triumph over the demonic influence that had existed in the couple’s life. Chief Agalivie encouraged the congregation by stating that it is never too late for God.

EX WITCH DOCTOR’S SON VOMITS CALABASH, RECEIVES DELIVERANCE
During the mass prayer with Prophet T.B. Joshua, we witnessed a young boy vomiting a calabash (gourd), a charm, WITCH DOCTOR SONalong with poisonous substances. After the calabash (gourd) was vomited out, it began to move on the floor, untouched by human hands. Some moments later, it burst open and poisonous substances began to ooze out of it.
To the great surprise of the congregation, we learned that the boy was the 14 year old son of Mr Adeyemo, the 80 year old witch doctor who had been delivered a few weeks ago alongside his 35 year old wife. The wife and witch doctor had each vomited 3 cowries during the course of prayer with Prophet T.B. Joshua in previous services. After their deliverance, they said they had tried convincing the boy to come to The SCOAN for deliverance but had been unsuccessful due to the evil powers the calabash (gourd) had given to him.

Mr Adeyemo had spiritually commanded the calabash (gourd) into his son, in the same manner he had commanded the cowries into himself and his wife, in order to give him boldness to carry out evil acts and become a powerful witch doctor. His plan was for his son to take over the witch doctor practice after he had passed away but after receiving deliverance, Mr Adeyemo was desperate for his son to receive the same deliverance and give his life to Jesus Christ. It was with the pressure of his wife that his son agreed to come to The SCOAN where we witnessed his deliverance live. To God be the glory!

A COMMUNITY SAYS THANK YOU!

Twenty-six members of the Ayebabogha family came to The SCOAN to say, Thank You, Jesus! Walking joyfully to the front of the altar, the family shared how the life of their son and brother, Mr Gift Ayebabogha, a Nigerian Police Force Officer was spared through the medium of the Anointing Water. At work one morning, he was attacked by armed robbers and shot at multiple times, forcing his intestines out of his body. He was rushed to the hospital where an operation was performed and the family testified that thanks to the power of God at work in the Anointing Water which he had ministered that morning, his life was saved.

MR GIFT AYEBABOA&FAMILYSevere post-operation complications developed and Mr Gift became unable to pass urine normally. A catheter had to be attached. Upon hearing his heartrending story, Prophet T.B. Joshua, moved with compassion, arranged for Mr Gift to be taken to India for a specialist operation and sponsored the entire trip. Having recuperated from his successful surgery in India, Mr Gift said, “The man of God, who did not even know me, used his resources and sent me for specialist medication abroad where my condition was corrected and restored”. To God be the glory.

GOD WIPED AWAY MY TEARS

MR KENNETH NDOVIEMr Kenneth Ndovie from Malawi was reeling from one catastrophe to another until the mercy of God touched him through the medium of the Anointing Water. He was facing financial crisis after he had lost his job and decided to go into business in an effort to make ends meet. One day, as he was travelling for business, he got a shocking call that his house had caught fire and had been gutted. He fainted upon hearing the news and people had to carry him home. Everything was destroyed but surprisingly, his Emmanuel TV decoder was spared. This encouraged his faith in the midst of calamity and he continued to pray with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV. Many of his friends had deserted him because of his poverty. No one wanted to associate with him. One day, a good friend lent him some money. Instead of investing it in his business, he decided to use it for transport and came to The SCOAN. He received the Anointing Water and when he returned home, all closed doors swung open. He received a contract as a big distributor of airtime credit for one of the major telecommunication companies in the country. Since that time, he has built a five bedroom house on eight plots of land, replete with a swimming pool. Not only that, he has a fleet of cars his staff use for distribution of recharge vouchers. Borrowing a leaf from the man of God Prophet T.B. Joshua, he has likewise gone into charitable activities and is helping the poor.

SPIRIT OF BEDWETTING AND STEALING DISGRACED IN YOUNG GIRL’S LIFE
During the time of prophecy in the live service the previous week, Prophet T.B. Joshua had encountered Miss Joana Agboga from Abuja, Nigeria and the darkness in her was immediately exposed. A young lady that was calmly standing in the congregation moments before was suddenly aggressively fighting as the demon within her began to manifest.

 Now delivered from the evil spirit, Miss Joana Agboga stood before the congregation of The SCOAN to thank God for His intervention in her life. A beautiful young girl from a wealthy home, she explained that the evil spirit had caused her to bedwet since the age of five. Even in boarding school, her classmates would cover up for her when she bedwet in the night. The evil spirit also made her to steal even though she never lacked materially or financially. It stifled her academic progress as her mind would blackout during examinations. The evil spirit also made her to be very stubborn and hot-tempered, throwing tantrums. She previously used to avoid watching Emmanuel TV, preferring to watch movies or music videos but now realised that she did not like to see people being saved, healed and set free because what was inside her was opposite to the light of God. Addressing the issue of deliverance, Prophet T.B. Joshua, said, “If we fail to realise that there are powers that cause people to be bowed down in bondage, we are fighting the wrong battle”.

After her deliverance in the power of the Holy Spirit from the spirit that scattered her destiny, Joana happily declared that she no longer experiences bedwetting or the urge to steal. Equally overjoyed, her mother, Mrs Elizabeth Agboga stood by her side to thank God for the transformation in her daughter’s life. Emphasizing the importance of maintaining the miracle, Prophet T.B. Joshua told her that on the last day, she will stand to testify how she helped her daughter maintain her deliverance.

DON’T STOP DOING GOOD – T.B. JOSHUA
Perhaps the most moving event of the day was the testimony of Mr Lucky, made possible by the singular act of Mr Lucky & Mr Chukskindness of one of the heads of security at The SCOAN. Mr Lucky explained that in 2008, he was busy working as a loading boy in a Lagos market place, assisting women to carry their goods. One day, he saw a woman in a pool of blood. A vehicle had run her down and she was about to die. Having little money with him, he felt compassion for the woman and used the money to take the woman to the hospital. Arriving at the hospital, the woman died and he was arrested for her murder. He had been in prison for five and a half years. It was while there that he encountered a man wearing one of the yet-to-be released Faith Bracelets from Prophet T.B. Joshua. The stranger told him to hold the hand with the bracelet and pray with him, believing God for his heart’s desire. That night, he had a dream of Prophet T.B. Joshua, telling him that he would be set free. Miraculously, 11 days later, he was released from the prison. He headed straight to The SCOAN with only the clothes on his back.  It was there that one of the heads of security discovered him crying by the church premises after unsuccessfully trying to enter the packed auditorium. He had all the looks of a mad man; he had unkempt hair, was dirty and was wearing rags. After listening to his story, instead of chasing him away, the SCOAN security man bathed him, bought him a new pair of trousers, shirt and sandals, and gave him 500 naira. He then got him a seat inside the church so he could partake of the service. After listening to the story, Prophet T.B. Joshua, touched by the bold step of kindness demonstrated by the security man, stated that a sum of 5 million naira would be allocated to him to continue to assist others as he has done today, saying he knows this is not the first time he had been assisting others in such a Godly way.

“Don’t stop doing good,’ he said.

If we say we are Christians, all our concerns, aspirations and heart desires must be subject to the Gospel, by works of charity, knowing that we lose nothing by doing that which pleases God.

With the year 2014 still in its infancy days, and having been prophetically christened by Prophet T.B. Joshua as ‘The Year of Crossing the Bridge’, nothing could be more timely than a call for Christians to be in an attitude of prayer all the time. The Man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, quoted the book of Joshua 1:8; which teaches about keeping and speaking the Word of God.Image

 

The prophet gave three take-home points: Keeping the Word of God in one’s mouth, meditating day and night in the Word, and doing what the Word says.

 

Explained the Man of God: “If the heart and mouth are in one accord with God’s Word, you will begin to tap the blessings of God. If the Word dominates your heart, it will surely influence your conduct and behavior and you will do what the Word says. The Word cannot dominate your heart by just reading it, but by meditating day and night. You have to cultivate this habit.”

 

Prophet T.B. Joshua later ministered prayer at the Prayer Line where people from all over the world received healings, deliverances and prophecies, by the power of the Holy Spirit and in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

 

Earlier on, Wise Man Christopher preached on the message: THE PROPHETIC PICTURE OF OUR FUTURE, urging Christians not to look at their situations from the human point of view but God’s. The proof-text was from the book of Genesis 37:5-11; a scripture about Joseph and how the Spirit of God gave him a prophetic picture of his future in a dream and saw himself in a position of authority.Image

He explained, “Your conduct and behaviour cannot change unless the Holy Spirit gives birth in you a picture of what He is looking at when He sees you. And that picture is a victor not a victim, a successful person not a failure, a blessed and healthy person not a poor and sick person. Like Joseph, if the Lord is with you, you would be comforted in whatever situation you find yourself. When God is supporting your position, there is comfort in affliction; strength in your weakness”.

 

TESTIMONIES

There was an abundance of testimonies from scores of people who came to give God the glory for the goodness He has done in their lives. Be blessed, in Jesus’ name, as you read a few of the amazing and awesome testimonies. We hope they will lift your faith and bring you close to God.

 

BACK TO LIFE: RESURRECTION POWER AT WORK!Image

Mrs Chioma Okorie and family came to The SCOAN to testify about the resurrection power they had experienced in the name of Jesus Christ. She and her family had gone on a visit to their village at the beginning of this month. However, what had started as a happy excursion to cheer friends and relatives, ended in horror when, on their way back to the city, their car crashed as they were trying to avoid an oncoming speeding car. While she, her husband and daughter came out safely from the wreck without a scratch, a family friend’s daughter who was with them in the car, collapsed. They rushed her to the hospital but, on arrival, she was confirmed dead, to the shock of everyone. Mrs Okorie became worried and agitated not knowing how she would explain to the family that her own family had come out safely but their daughter had died. She remembered that she had in her handbag the Anointing Sticker she had received from The SCOAN. She placed it on the dead body and prayed with it for the resurrection power of Jesus Christ to restore the girl’s life. While praying in the name of Jesus, the girl stirred, woke up and began to talk, to the amazement of everyone.

 

“The first thing she asked was, ‘where is uncle?’ and we knew she was back to life,” said Mrs Okorie.

Ada Chukwu, the girl concerned, came out to testify that all she could remember was waking up on the hospital bed with the Anointing Sticker on her body. Praise God!

 

SCROTUM CANCER PERMANENTLY ELIMINATED IN JESUS’ NAME

ImageMr Edolor and his family came to express their sincere gratitude to God for His life-giving power. Mr Martins Edolor, 45 years-old, had developed scrotum cancer from what started as a tiny boil. The small sore turned into a fully-fledged wound that oozed blood and smelly pus. He could not eat. The scrotum as well as his stomach became very swollen. He was urinating blood. He could not drive or walk around or even wear trousers. The pain increased everyday and no drug he took worked. He went to the hospital and they carried out tests on him but they could not treat his condition because it had become too severe. The doctors only gave him some medication just to ease the pain. When his father saw him lie in the hospital bed with a big foul-smelling wound on his private parts and flies buzzing all over the room, he simply broke down in tears. He had just lost three sons in three years and could not stand the sight of seeing another inch close to the edge of yet another grave.Image

 

His sister, Comfort, a member of The SCOAN, encouraged him that he would not die; that the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua would heal him. She connected his phone so that he could hear Prophet T.B. Joshua’s prayers. He began to pray with the man of God. That night, after the prayer, the boil burst open. Blood and strange objects started coming out of the anus. For the first time, he had a slight relief and was able to move his leg. Three days later, they brought him to The SCOAN. By now, the horrible smell from the cancer had gone, making it easier for people to travel with him. He joined the prayer line and, as one of the Wise Men approached him, he said, he felt a cold sensation flow down his body to his feet. He stood up, all the pain was gone! For the first time in three weeks, he asked for his pair of trousers to be brought for him. He had been wearing a wrapper to avoid hurting himself.

“Within days after the prayer, the wound healed. Up to now, everything is normal and you cannot tell that I ever had scrotum cancer,” he said.

 

Mr Edolor is now back to his business, selling foodstuffs and living his life freely to the glory of God. His 84 year-old father said if his son had died, he was also ready to die as he could not bear the anguish. His sister, Comfort, advised people to get connected to the prayers of Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV and that Jesus Christ would transform their life.

 

ENGINEER BEN FINALLY BUILDS HIS OWN HOUSEImage
Engineer Ben and Family came to testify how they got breakthrough through the Anointing Sticker and Anointing Water. Although he and his family were staying in town, they had been facing serious accommodation problems when they visited the village. They had been making frantic efforts to build a house to replace the one left by his grandfather but due to financial setbacks, it all proved abortive. In 2012 they received the Anointing Water and the Anointing Sticker from The SCOAN with which he and his wife prayed with it for a miracle. In the same year, he had a dream in which he was reconstructing the old house and getting to his office, asked an architect to sketch it for him. With faith, he put the Anointing Sticker on the door of the old house and instructed his people to start clearing the ground around the old house telling them this was where God wanted them to start. He sprinkled the Anointing Water on the foundation of the new building and prayed in Jesus’ name. Since that time, they did not stop construction until the 10-room duplex building was completed. What they had failed to complete in years, was finished in just two and a half months. Also, while the construction was going on; God blessed him with a new SUV car. In December they all travelled to the village and no one could recognise the way to their house because in place of the old building was a new magnificent house, fully furnished. 

 

FAVOUR UPON FAVOUR FOR WOMAN OF FAITH

Taking her turn to testify was Mrs Theophilla Myoba from Lusaka in Zambia.  She had earlier come to The SCOAN with the problem of setback and limitation. Her family had been suffering from abject poverty. They were barely surviving. After human power and wisdom had failed to bail the family out of the seeming perpetual problem, she concluded that God was the only solution. Mrs Myoba’s situation was so critical that she even had to borrow money for her transport to come to The SCOAN. Even the clothes she wore, she borrowed. People laughed at her when she told them she was coming to The SCOAN but her faith was so strong that no one could dissuade her. While she was still at The SCOAN, a miracle happened. Her husband received a long-awaited promotion at his place of work and that marked the beginning of her breakthrough in the family. She also met the Man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, and was privileged to receive the Anointing Water. Back home in Zambia, taps of favour opened and poured upon her family. She received her own promotion. As a civil servant, she was able to complete a five-bedroom house she had been struggling to build. She is also a proud owner of two cars. She had never believed that she would ever own what she now has.Image

 

“Don’t listen to what people say; they laughed at me. Follow your heart and God will bless you,” she advised and showed viewers her new car and house she has built with God’s grace.

 

WOMAN FRAUDSTER EXPOSED AFTER STEALING GOD’S MONEY

Miss Coulibaly Assetou, from Ivory Coast, came to give testimony of her breakthrough and also tell a tragic account of her encounter with a professional fraudster who conned her of an estimated US$100,000 meant for God’s work. Miss Assetou had been experiencing problems in her business but after ministering the Anointing Water and praying with faith in Jesus’ name, she was able to open a multinational company stretching from France to Belgium and Italy – the first vehicle transit company in Ivory Coast. Since then, she has experienced breakthrough in every area of her life.Image

 

She explained that she had found out about The SCOAN through a Marie France Monnet, a woman who claimed to be Prophet T.B. Joshua’s representative in Ivory Coast. To express her appreciation to God and to support the worthy cause of Emmanuel TV, she decided to become a partner of the ministry. In line with that understanding, she gave a total sum of 45 million CFA to the woman to present to The SCOAN and Emmanuel TV for tithe and partnership payments. The sum is equivalent to 100,000 US Dollars.

 

To her utter shock, when she came to The SCOAN last week, she discovered that the money had never reached The SCOAN and that she had fallen into the hands of a fraudster. She was stunned and could not believe that the woman she had held in high esteem was not what she had professed to be but an imposter with no fear of God.

 

As if that was not enough, the same woman, Marie France Monnet called and told her that the man of God had given her a prophecy that she should give more money or else something bad would happen to her in 2014. Standing before the congregation on Sunday, she warned everyone especially those from Ivory Coast to be careful not to be duped by the fraudster. She also warned that there is no Emmanuel TV office in the country and people should watch out for such unscrupulous individuals who steal in the name of the Lord.

 

According to her, the woman had even claimed that she was going to bring a wise man to Ivory Coast.  Viewers all over the world, be careful of those who are interested only in their personal gain!

 

JESUS STOPS SEVERE BLEEDING, SAVES BABY ‘EMMANUEL’!

Mrs Imah Rosemary, from Edo State, had been bleeding profusely through her nose and mouth for eight consecutive days due to a ruptured nose artery. The doctor fixed a drip on her but the bleeding continued all the more. Her condition was deteriorating by the day and her situation was critical as she was eight months pregnant. The doctors declared that there was nothing more they could do. It was in this desperate state that her husband rushed her to The SCOAN as the last beacon of hope. Blood was ceaselessly gushing from both her mouth and nostrils into a bucket placed on her lap. It was a shocking spectacle to watch. Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her at the prayer line and commanded the bleeding to stop, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. It did. Her nose and mouth went dry. Both her life and that of her unborn baby were saved and she has now safely delivered her baby boy and given him the name ‘Emmanuel’!  Her husband thanked Jesus for His mercy.Image

 

“She had stopped eating and drinking. The night after the prayer, she demanded for food and slept like a baby,” he said. When it was time for her to deliver her baby, they were in different locations but her husband ministered the Anointing Water on her picture, praying for her. A moment later, she called and told him that she had delivered safely without any complication. What a wonderful God we serve!

 

GENERATIONAL CURSE OF ARMED ROBBERY SMASHED!
Image
Mrs Gifty Torubiri’s great-great grandfather was a witchdoctor and fetish man. Apart from being a seer for the chief’s throne in his area, he provided charms to thieves. It is not surprising, therefore, that the spirit of stealing entered his family and developed deep roots that grew to haunt the generations after him. Each family that descended from him had armed robbers who did not hesitate to shed blood. Mrs Torubiri’s own father was a notorious armed robber and died in the act. His killing made headlines in the press. All male members of the family were notorious criminals who abducted women and raped them. Not long ago, she was called to view bodies of her uncles shot dead by the police during a failed robbery attempt. Many people gathered to watch the execution. Meanwhile, all the females in the family have been prostitutes or married to armed robbers. After marrying armed robbers, they would give birth to armed robbers and so the cycle of crime continued. Her mother too lived a criminal’s life; selling Indian hemp and moving from one hotel to another, prostituting herself. As for herself, she always felt something urging her to steal and she has slept with more men than she can remember, unbeknown to her husband. She even slept with her landlord and the chief in her village while married. She could not explain why, but said that she would always desire other women’s husbands and was never satisfied.

 

All this was exposed at The SCOAN where she came for prayer the previous week. However, what brought her were financial difficulties. Little did she know that the root of her problem was a horrific family curse of armed robbery. When it was time for her deliverance and one of the wise men was approaching her, she was praying but then, suddenly, something within her told her to run away. The evil spirit inside her started to confess that it was the ‘great old woman’ and that it was responsible for the spirit of armed robbery in her family and that it had destroyed her destiny. To God be the glory, she was finally delivered.

 

After her deliverance, she is free. The thought of stealing is no longer there and she no longer thinks about other men nor desires to sleep with other people’s husbands. She pleaded for deliverance of her whole family as she did not want to be a mother of armed robbers. Her 17-year old son, she said, was already stealing and had recently been caught stealing a fowl, for which he was severely beaten. The tragic part of her story was that every robber in the family would eventually get killed.

 

Commenting on her situation and the deliverance, Prophet T.B. Joshua explained that when one kills an armed robber or a criminal, it is the body that is killed and not the evil spirit which is the cause of the stealing, killing and destroying. Therefore, the solution is deliverance from that evil spirit. “Once an evil spirit is cast out by the Spirit of God in the name of Jesus, it is caged perpetually until the Day of Judgment”, he said.

 

HEALED OF DIABETES THROUGH WATCHING EMMANUEL TV

Miss Misper Youngwe is a Cameroonian living in Germany. She had a dream where men sprayed tear gas on her. She woke up that day and had rashes all over her body. She went to the hospital where the doctors gave her medication to stop the rashes and scratching. She went for another test and was diagnosed to be a diabetic. This was strange to her because no one in her family had this problem. She started praying with Prophet T.B. Joshua while watching Emmanuel TV and carrying the test results, believing by faith for healing. She went for another test and glory to God, she was pronounced diabetic free to the surprise of the doctors. She advised that watching Emmanuel TV can transform your life.Image

 

The service closed with a Mass Payer ministered by the Wise Men. Praise God!

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

CONSULTATION WITH A SPIRITUAL MIRROR

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

EMMANUEL TV PARTNER REAPS GOD’S FAVOURS!

 Image

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NOW ALCOHOL’S ENEMY NO 1!

 

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

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

her examinations due to lack of concentration.Image

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

DOUBLE BLESSING & BREAKTHROUGH

 Image

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

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

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

 

ImageImageImage

 

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

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

GOD’S GIFT OF HEALING

 

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

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

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

 

 

GOD DELIVERED ME THE WAY HE DID THE ISRAELITES

 

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

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

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

Emmanuel! God With Us!

ImageThe mighty power of God manifesting itself through healings, deliverance and prophecy, was witnessed at The SCOAN’S last Sunday service broadcast live via Emmanuel TV. Thousands of worshippers from all over the world, who gathered at the church’s headquarters in Lagos, witnessed the power of Christ in action right from the Prayer Line when God Almighty delivered and healed people through the faculties of the wise men. Demons were commanded down to their knees and cast out, in the name of Jesus Christ. Those who came with addictions, afflictions and sicknesses, were declared healed and free Imagethrough the power of the Holy Spirit. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, prophesied to the congregation to the glory of the living God. He also drew attention to the day’s message delivered earlier on by Wise Man Christopher entitled: We Need The Corresponding Power. The man of God said the real thing about being a Christian is not ‘the work we do, but the relationship we maintain with God and the atmosphere produced by that relationship’. He said the message, which was drawn from the Acts of the Apostles Chapter 1:4-8, is a clear demonstration that Christians need support from Heaven just as the Lord, Jesus Christ had promised His Apostles the Holy Spirit before they could embark on their commission. He underscored the crux of the message, saying ‘to believe God, is to be under the power of the Holy Spirit’. Prophet T.B. Joshua said: “A proper relationship with God will bring a proper atmosphere.” As is always the case, the service was laced with amazing testimonies from people who had witnessed the touch of the Almighty God in various aspects of their lives. Here are a selected few. Stay blessed:

 

PASTOR SET FREE FROM ILLICIT ADDICTIONS AFTER 46 YEARS

Fourty-six years can be a life time. To have a stubborn addiction that ravages you for all those years, can therefore be as depressing as it is torturous. Such was the case with a minister of God, Reverend Bones Asamaowel, who suffered an addiction to smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol for 46 years.Image

The 57 year-old cleric told the congregation and viewers of Emmanuel TV that the problem started when he was ten years old and in school. He said that the problem severely affected his behaviour to the extent that he was at one point expelled from school.

He later went to continue with his education in the United States of America. Unfortunately, his addiction to taking the substances persisted.

“It became worse. I would go to clubs for partying and drinking,” he said.

He attended a Bible college and was ordained as a reverend. Despite being ordained, he could not cast out the addiction but continued to smoke and drink. At church he would stifle the urge. At home, he would relent by temporarily secluding himself from family and friends to smoke and drink secretly.

“My family has suffered. From the church ceremony, I would go to the backyard to smoke,” said the Reverend.

He said as a pastor, he ministered in many churches both in the US and Nigeria, but continued smoke, drink and party. Desperate for a way out, he came to The SCOAN on July 21 where he received the Anointing Water. He ministered it on himself in the name of Jesus Christ and from that day, Reverend Asamaowel no longer has an urge to smoking the prohibited substance let alone drinking alcohol!

Testifying in the company of his wife and two children, he told the congregation that the Anointing Water had completely washed out the addiction and he is now a free man, delivered from the chains of the devil.

“People have tested me. Those who have known me for my addiction have brought beer to my face and made me sniff but I can no longer stand the smell,” he said.

Reverend Asamaowel said he now preaches the Gospel and is more effective in his ministry. “For two months now I have not smoked anything and drunk no alcohol. I thank God. I am now free,” he said.

The happiest was probably his wife who exclaimed: “I now have a new husband and a good home. My husband can now eat the food I prepare.”

Reverend and wife thanked God for setting them free and advised everybody to believe and trust in the Lord Jesus saying, when the Son of God sets you free, you are free indeed.

 

MIRACULOUSLY SAVED FROM CAR ACCIDENT

Also testifying on Sunday, were Mr and Mrs Mutengo Mark from Chingola in Zambia. They came to The SCOAN to share their joy over how God saved them from what would have been a fatal car accident through the medium of the Anointing Water and the Anointing Sticker.

ImageOn August 11, the family had prepared to go to their daughter’s wedding. Before getting into their car, they prayed and ministered the Anointing Water on themselves and on the car. In total, there were nine people traveling in the car. While they were on their way, narrated Mr Mark, they heard a large explosion. The car lost control, flew into the air and somersaulted four times before it landed on the opposite side of the road, facing the wrong direction and sitting on its roof.

“Everyone in the car, including my wife, was crying for help. The doors were locked and I could hear my wife yelling for help,” he said.

Somehow, Mr Mutengo helped his wife climb out the window. He then released his seatbelt and also climbed out the window. But their 13 year-old daughter was missing. Mrs Mutengo started to call out her name, thinking she was trapped somewhere in the wreck. To the amazement of all and onlookers, the little girl was safely standing about 10 metres from the scene of the accident, unhurt and on her own feet.

“We don’t know how our daughter came out of the vehicle and survived the crash! God must have sent His angels who saved our daughter, thanks to His power which we experienced through the medium of the Anointing Water,” he said.

Those that had minor injuries including Mr and Mrs Mutengo, were rushed to hospital where they received treatment as out-patients. Everyone went home and continued to minister the bruises with the Anointing Water, in Jesus’ name and they received their complete and total healing. They told the congregation and viewers not to underestimate God’s power in the Anointing Water.

 

DRY BONES RISE AGAIN, WALK!

Mrs Elizabeth Oyeronke Adebomi is a teacher by profession and came to The SCOAN to glorify God with her wonderful testimony of what God Almighty has done for her. Her testimony started with a replay of a footage taken seven years ago at The SCOAN.

In the replay, the then 40 year-old woman was seen helplessly and painfully sitting in a car, unable to walk due to multiple fractures to her right leg. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, walked over, listened to her plight and, calling on the power of the Holy Spirit; he prayed for her and she was instantly healed, in the name of Jesus Christ. As she walked, taking one step after another, her husband could not help but roll on the ground in joy.

ImageFast-forward to last Sunday: Mrs Adebomi told a story of horror; a tale of how one morning, while driving her car to work, she suddenly found herself looking death in the eye in a head on car collision. As a result of the impact, the car doors were jammed and she found herself trapped inside.

Rescuers rushed to the scene of the accident and managed to pry open the car doors. Mrs Elizabeth was pulled out and rushed to hospital. While there, she had no feeling in her right leg. It felt dead. The doctors said she had a fracture of the right patella and advised her to undergo an operation.

She was hesitant and refused to go under the knife. Instead, she visited many other hospitals but to no avail. Everything in her life came to a standstill. She could no longer go to work nor take care of her family. It was the husband who now had to do domestic chores including taking care of their two year-old daughter. By God’s grace, her husband brought her to The SCOAN where Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for at the Prayer Line in the powerful name of Jesus Christ. Following the prayer, Mrs Elizabeth Oyeronke Adebomi walked for the glory of God, without any pain or discomfort – all bones brought back to life!

Mrs Elizabeth testified to the congregation that, since that time, she has been able to carry out all responsibilities she could not following the accident.

“It was like a dream when the Prophet prayed for me. My dead legs started to move. I resumed work two weeks later. It is now seven years. I now walk and drive my car like before,” Mrs Adebomi said.

Confirming the testimony, Mr Adebomi said, referring to how he shared the suffering: “You don’t know what it means to abandon your job to take care of a family including a little baby.”

Together, they thanked God for the healing that has brought joy back to their home.

 

POVERTY BANISHED THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

To shoppers at Kitwe in Zambia, the name Tenson & Sons General Dealers may not conjure many memories despite being a one stop-shop for all hardware and electronic equipment. But there is an amazing story to this investment. It is a fruit of faith in God and His work to set His children free from the evil spirits of poverty, thanks to the medium of the Anointing Water through which He continues to work.Image

Just three years ago, the owner, Mr Tenson, was synonymous to poverty. There was nothing he could lay his hands on that would bear fruit. He had tried to run a small hawker, but he would have too little if nothing, to show for all his labour.

Agitated, he decided in 2011 to come to The SCOAN looking for a breakthrough. By the grace of God, he received the Anointing Water and, back home; he ministered it to himself and his shop, in Jesus’ name. Behold, soon after that, God Almighty opened doors for him and he was blessed with a thriving business. He now has three houses and two big shops in different areas under the trademark – Tenson & Sons General Dealers. What more, God has blessed him with a BMW car all through the medium of the Anointing Water. 

“I am here to bear testimony and to thank God for blessing me this much,” he said, showing pictures of his shops and expensive car.

 

OXFORD GRADUATE RECEIVES 10,000 POUND SCHOLARSHIP FROM PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA

ImageMr Hngshin Daramy-Williams, born in Sierra Leone but living in the UK, explained how he came from a humble family of six children. Growing up, life was a struggle because although the children in his family were all gifted in many ways, they did not have the financial means to support them. He was gifted intellectually and studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) at Oxford University in the United Kingdom.

Despite his intellectual brilliance, the financial situation of his family forced him to depend on loans throughout his undergraduate degree at Oxford. He passed his first year exams with distinction but in his third year, before his final exams, he suffered a massive mental breakdown. He experienced panic attacks and a lot of self doubt where he could not even look at past exam papers; all this including the financial strain took a large toll on his mental state. He had severe depression and suicidal thoughts.

During this time, his mother came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water which she ministered on him, believing that he would be restored. By the grace of God, he managed to complete his final exams. He thought he had failed but to his joy and amazement, he graduated with a 2:1 (Second class upper) in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford University.

Now free from the depression and no longer suffering from suicidal thoughts, he applied and gained admission to the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom, to study MSC in Economics. He calculated everything and he would need to acquire 9440 pounds in order to complete his Masters degree at the University of Leeds. He explained that he did not want to apply for more loans as this had contributed to his mental breakdown and was here to appeal to God for help to continue his education and focus on his future.

Upon listening to his case, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave him 10,000 pounds to complete his Masters in Economics from the University of Leeds. This is approximately US $16,000.

The man of God advised the congregation and viewers around the world saying, “The value of money is to change lives, change nations and to change the world. This is the reason why God blessed you. God blessed you to change the world and God blessed you to change nations,” said the Prophet.

 

HEART PROBLEM STOPPED THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

Last year, Mrs Binta Ahmed Musa escorted her husband to Egypt for his medical treatment. While there, she was encouraged to go for her own check-up and it was confirmed that she had a severe, life-threatening heart problem. She was not getting enough blood to her heart and her blood vessels were blocked. This resulted in a very weak heart.  She was advised by the doctor to go for an immediate operation which would cost $12,000.  She could not afford such kind of money.

Back in Nigeria, she went to a doctor who also advised her to go for an operation but again, she could not afford it. She cried to friends and relatives about her predicament. One day her daughter advised her to go to The SCOAN.Image

After seeking the opinion of her religious leaders, she came to The SCOAN and was arranged at the Prayer Line. By the grace of God, she received the Anointing Water and ministered it to herself, in Jesus’ name. After the ministration, she started noticing changes in her body. She started to climb stairs, a daunting task she could not do before, due to her condition.

After being encouraged by changes in her body, she went back to the doctor in Nigeria. The checkup showed that everything was normal but the doctor could not readily accept the verdict. He advised Mrs Musa to go back to Egypt for further tests.

Mrs Musa went back to Egypt for another examination. The doctor was equally surprised and could not believe the results because everything had returned to normal. The doctor asked her if her blood vessels – which had been blocked during the first examination – had been operated on. She gave an emphatic, “No”. The doctor prepared her for theatre and carried out further tests. He was very surprised at the fresh results, saying there wasn’t any sign of a heart problem. In fact, he told her, she had a very good heart.

Such was Mrs Musa’s miraculous healing that she decided to come to The SCOAN to thank God for her healing that came free of charge but by the precious blood of Jesus Christ through the medium of the Anointing Water. She brought with her the before-and-after medical reports proving that God Almighty had indeed healed her of the life-threatening problem.

 

BUS DRIVER, 28 PASSENGERS SURVIVE TERRIBLE ACCIDENT

Mr Balo Boy is a bus driver and owner of a bus company in Botswana. On August 12, 2012 he was travelling to Francis town with 28 passengers onboard. Before he left, that morning, he ministered the Anointing Water, in Jesus’ name and prayed for the protection of God on their journey. Mr Balo was driving the bus when suddenly, a car swerved to his side of the road and a terrible collision took place. To the glory of God, the bus did not somersault but stood amazingly still and he and all 28 passengers survived unharmed. Image

After the terrible accident, the bus was left severely damaged and Mr Balo Boy was very sad. He wanted to give up the business when, one night in a dream, a man dressed in white told him not to give up, that he should not be discouraged. After that dream, he got two brand new buses! He later received a call from the land authorities advising him that he had been allocated a piece of land for his residence. Praise God!

The Sunday Live service carried on into the night with God delivering His people from evil afflictions through the faculties of the wise men. The prophetic and awe-inspiring service ended with a Mass Prayer. As the grace was said, all the congregation rejoiced remembering the prayer point from earlier on in the service given by Prophet T.B. Joshua: ‘Visit me Lord and declare me free!’ Truly, they had been visited by Jesus Christ and declared free.

Last Sunday service was a glorious occasion to behold. From the wonders and miracles to the prophetic message, the exaltation of the Almighty God was elating. The prayer line hosted people from around the world seeking God’s intervention in their lives. They were prayed for by the wise men, healed and delivered in Jesus’ name. 

0 - T.B.J The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, as usual, prophesied to many of the congregants – striking at the root of their problems. In his message, the prophet re-iterated his previous message: ‘Do Not Tempt The Devil To Tempt You’.

 

In his message for the day, Prophet T.B. Joshua said one can be anointed with God’s gifts but that the challenge is how to maintain such grace. He said, “Anyone can be sent to preach but not everyone can maintain that grace. To maintain the grace is the issue.  Anyone can buy a car but not everyone can maintain it. If you had maintained the blessing of God you would not be complaining today.”

He said that the blessing of God attracts enemies and persecution and that when blessing comes, persecution comes. “The blessing of God is honey. When you drop honey or sugar on the floor, before you know it, ants from the East, South, West, North will come and eat the honey. Honey is the blessing of God; the ants come and look for it.” He, however, said man must not dwell on those that are against him but to love them and pray for them. Therefore, “It is a wrong prayer for your enemy to die. If they are not there, how will you grow?  You cannot grow in the face of pleasure; it is in a place of difficulty that you grow”, he concluded.

Many people came out to glorify God for the dramatic changes they had experienced in their lives. It is our desire that as you read these testimonies, your faith will be lifted up to place you in a position for your own miracle, in Jesus’ name.

 

RED REPTILE SPIRIT SENT PACKING

 1 - PRINCESS RITA NGBEThe devil gives with one hand and, before you know it, he snatches it back with the other and your situation becomes worse. Princess Rita Ngbe from Cross River, Nigeria is a living example.

She is also a classic case of how, if left to themselves without parental guidance, children’s minds can be defiled and become the devil’s workshop for manufacturing his deadliest arsenal.

Ms Ngbe, 29, came to The SCOAN to testify concerning the deliverance she received the previous week. Recounting her story, she said it all began when she was just 12 years old. She was not being monitored by her parents and became obstinate.

She would be very stubborn and preferred being inside her room. She would lock her room to make sure she was all alone. During those times, she would be reading books, some of which were too much above her age.

On one particular afternoon, while inside the room, a spirit that looked like a small blood-red chameleon appeared to her. The spirit told her it wanted to be her friend and they started to play. She grew up day by day with this being within her, developing her relationship with it unbeknown to any other person. “Because my parents did not pay any attention to me, I did not bother telling them anything about this strange phenomenon,” she said.

Later, the reptile began to give her instructions to initiate other children by rubbing white clay on them. When rubbed, the children would begin to also witness visions of the same red reptile.

Save for three girls whose parents were very prayerful, she initiated all girls that were put under her care in the neighbourhood and warned them never to tell anyone about it, threatening to beat them if they did.

When she entered secondary school, people started accusing her of belonging to a cult because of the way and manner she conducted herself and more especially the company she kept. Little did they know that she possessed powers higher than any cultist would boast to have.

“This made me annoyed because with the powers I had, it was disrespectful to compare me with a cultist. If I felt threatened or harassed by the lecturers or some bullies, I would say, ‘Do you know who I am? You will see!’ and they would run away.”

By worshipping the red reptile, she said, one would be very brilliant in class and be rich but would not be allowed to get married. She would be allowed to live with a man and have children but never to settle down with anyone. She was told never to fall in love.

As Ms Ngbe was growing up and following the instructions of the spirit, she would graduate spiritually and become sophisticated in her powers. She was able to send signals to make people fall in love. She didn’t even need to see the people in order to match-make them. Those people would get married but after two to three months, the marriage would bitterly break up.

But, thank God, she was not able to manipulate strong Christians but only corrupt hearts that would tell lies and fornicate because she had the power to control what people thought with their minds. To those who were innocent, naïve, she would send a lie to them and once they had lied, they were initiated.

She had power in her nails, eyes and forehead. Her eyes had so much power that if she looked at a mirror intently, the mirror would crack. She also had power in her forehead for deceiving people to believe that she was a good person.

“I had cars, houses and cash in my bank. Money was not a problem and I walked with authority,” she said. But it was not to be forever. She fell in love, broke the covenant she had with the devil and fell from her position. The fall was catastrophic. She found herself in jail on an office matter and ended up selling her two expensive cars – a Hummer bus and a Peugeot 607 for a paltry seventy-thousand Naira only. 

In fact, she did not come to The SCOAN in search of deliverance, rather breakthrough so that she would financially be back on her feet. When she came to The SCOAN, she felt very uncomfortable as the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua was preaching love. According to her, she would have been more relaxed if he had been preaching hatred.

At The SCOAN, she was arranged at the prayer line. She brought out her pictures for the wise men to pray for but she was surprised as they did not touch the documents but rather touched her head (her crown). She saw beams of light and heard a voice telling her to confess and be free. Later, she found herself on the floor.

After her deliverance, the good sleep she had been denied for many years has returned to her. In her dreams, she would see herself in a group of people and also strange animals which she would communicate with. All these have gone after her deliverance.

She warned that satan gives and takes away in a jiffy. “I was excellent, very brilliant at school and rapidly rose in my career but when satan chose to take it away, he took it all away in one day. Everything about me collapsed and I ended up in prison,” she said.

She was not without advice: “Parents, watch your children. An idle mind is the workshop of the devil. For the rest of you with strange habits, go to a living church and receive your deliverance. There is nothing higher than God Almighty.”

JUST A SPRAY, 14 YEARS BONDAGE TO SMOKING BROKEN

2 - MR IKOLO SYLVESTER [SMOKING] Another person who came to testify to the glory of God was Mr Ikolo Sylvester. He had been smoking for 14 years. He had tried to stop it on his own but he couldn’t. His addiction was so chronic that if he didn’t smoke marijuana, he couldn’t eat.

“I was a chain smoker and smoked two packs of cigarettes and weed each day,” he said. As a result of the illicit substance, Mr Ikolo was arrested several times. During that period, he was very lean – he ate but it didn’t show. As a result of the problem, he became violent towards most people. One day he fell sick from a malarial attack and was admitted to the hospital.

While there, one of the patients was visited by a friend – a soldier. The visitor brought his friend the Anointing Water and ministered it on him. He became curious and interested and begged the soldier to spray a little on him. As the good visitor ministered the Anointing Water on him, Mr Ikolo prayed in his heart in Jesus’ name that God should set him free from his addiction.

That ended a long time addiction to chain-smoking and taking of illicit substances. “I am now free from the spirit of smoking and the urge for cigarettes and marijuana/weed is all but gone,” he shouted to the glory of God. He advised people to come closer to God and have faith in Him.

 

ANOINTING WATER PRODUCT

3 - MR EMOITOLOGA GODDAY [PROMOTION] Mr Emoitologa Godday came all the way from Adamawa State, Nigeria to share his wonderful testimony. He had worked for the Ministry of Education as the Chief Education Officer for years without any promotion. Many people under him would be promoted but that was never the case with him.

For four times, he applied for the position of Assistant Director of Education but the effort bore no result. He decided to come to The SCOAN and by the grace of God, he received the Anointing Water.

When he was invited for an interview, he ministered it on his documents in Jesus’ name and prayed that he be considered for the position. He believed in his heart that he would be among the best ten for the promotion exam and, to the glory of God, he passed the exam and he was promoted to be the Assistant Director of Education. He said that all the candidates that had used his Anointing Water passed the interviews as well. He showed the congregation the promotion letter he received from the Ministry of Education, Nigeria with his name listed as number 9.

“Everyone saw me minister the Anointing Water and I boastfully told them that I would pass. Now that God has proven Himself true through the medium, people call me ‘Anointing Water Product’,” he said.

BEDWETTING, MASTURBATION – A LONG FORGOTTEN STORY

 4 - MISS FAVOUR YAJE [BEDWETTING]Next to take her turn to glorify God was Miss Favour Yaje from Cameroon who was delivered from the spirits of masturbation and bedwetting that had haunted her for more than 20 years. She said she would dream herself as a teenager. In her dreams, she would be desperate to use the lavatory and would do such, not knowing that she was actually urinating in her bed. To void this, she would struggle to keep herself awake which was impossible.

A young woman who left home aged 12 for insisting to read her Bible over the family’s beliefs in idol worshipping, she had no person to talk to. She single-handedly fought it but to no avail. “There was a particular time that I would have this problem every month,” she said.

As if that was not enough, she also had the problem of masturbation for 3 years. The problem tormented her so seriously that she could no longer pray, saying she could masturbate up to three times in a day. “I never got satisfied. Each action led to another all the time,” she said.

One day, while she was watching Emmanuel TV, she touched the screen, became angry at her problems and prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. Suddenly, she couldn’t control herself and didn’t remember what happened.  When night came she had the same dream but to her amazement when she woke up, she found out that she had not wet the bed.

She received her deliverance two years ago and when Jesus delivered her, He delivered her effectually. Masturbation has become a long forgotten story. She advises: “Shame belongs to the devil. We should be open and be ready to expose our problems, so that we can be delivered. Parents, love your children so that they can confide in you.”

RECONCILIATION: MOTHER REUNITED WITH CHILDREN AFTER 10 YEARS

5 - JOHN WARIFINOWEI [RECONCILIATION] Sunday was also a happy day for the family of Mr John Warifinowei who came to The SCOAN to testify how a prophecy by Prophet T.B. Joshua had reunited his family.

Mr Warifinowei received the prophecy two weeks ago when the man of God pointed him out and asked him to ‘forgive the woman’.  He came back to The SCOAN the following week, revealing that the person referred to in the prophecy was his mother whom he had always believed to be a witch.

He said his belief stemmed from the fact that many spiritualists, who presented themselves as prophets, had told him that his mother was the cause of all the hardship the family was passing through. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, declared that his mother was not a witch and advised the whole family to go on their knees and ask the mother for forgiveness.

Mr Warifinowei explained that when they got home that Sunday, they experienced joy in their family for the first time in ten years. Previously, he said, they would not even allow the mother to visit their homes as they were all afraid of being bewitched. 

His wife equally testified to the massive change the prophesy had brought to their home.  “For the first time, our children played with their grandmother,” she said, fighting tears of joy. She advised the congregants and viewers to always seek the voice of God and to avoid spiritualists who, she said, are never up to anything good but to ruin homes.

She said the meal they had had at The SCOAN’s restaurant soon after the reconciliation, was their first with the mother in all those years as they had always avoided and condemned her to a life of seclusion.

The mother could not hide her joy at being reconciled with her children, thanking God for using the man of God to rebuild the broken home.

A MAN I SLEPT WITH TURNED INTO A LION!

6 - MRS AMI & FAMILY Mrs Amy Anyadimaju and family came to The SCOAN following the deliverance she had received through Wise Man Harry.

Amy grew up without much parental care. She grew up believing that her father was dead according to what her mother had told her. As a result, she started running away from home. She ran away from school and she got raped at the age of six years. Since that incident, she started having the urge to be around men and she went too far to the extent that she became addicted to hard drugs.

She started selling herself and sleeping around with up to 15 men in a single night to raise money for drugs and her upkeep. It was during such escapades that she met with a man at a nightclub who later became the father of her three kids.

When she was six months pregnant, she ran away from her husband’s house and started prostituting with her pregnancy. After giving birth to her son, her mother took her home. However she was still craving for men and she decided to dump the 3-day-old child at home with her mother and returned to prostitution.

She ran away for almost two years from her family and nobody knew where she was. At the age of 18, she got pregnant for her third child. In her pregnancy, she went to Cape Town and she signed an agreement to sell the baby while he was still in her womb.

She also started to sell herself on the Internet to find clients from other countries through facebook. She recalled travelling to countries such as USA, Australia, UK and many more countries just to keep a date with an internet lover. It was during such trips abroad that she ran into a group of 20 men who slept with her in turn until she almost passed away.

She also recounted that one of the men she slept with suddenly turned to a snake on her. The other experience was that while sleeping with another man, he turned to a lion right on top of her.

On her facebook account, she said, she had 4,580 friends and men visiting her page just to download her obscene pictures. “Anytime I logged on to my Facebook account. I would receive hundreds of messages at a time and some men would offer me whatever I asked for,” she said.

After her deliverance, she felt ashamed of her past life as a prostitute and drug addict. Now, she no longer craves for men, cigarettes and drugs and instead longs for a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. She said: “I’m indeed delivered. I advise all the youth to finish their education and listen to their parents. Stay away from facebook.”

Following this startling cyber revelation, Prophet T.B. Joshua called out the congregation to pray for the children and youth all over the world to be cautious of social networks.

KINGDOM TORN APART BY ISSUES OF WITCHES AND WIZARDS

7 - HRH BOKOLO WARI & COMMUNITY His Royal Highness Bokolo Wari from Obiogu Kingdom, Niger-Delta, Nigeria came to The SCOAN purposely to seek God’s intervention concerning issues of idol worshipping and witchcraft that had torn his kingdom apart for over 230 years.

He was previously prophesied to by Prophet T.B. Joshua about a ‘court case which was going on appeal and a certain woman whom the community had falsely accused of being a witch’.

HRH Bokolo confessed that the two prophecies surprised him because he had never met the prophet.

He confirmed the prophecies to be true and said the first one was his main reason for visiting The SCOAN.

He explained that an eight-year-old girl had mysteriously entered a young man’s room and slept by his side. The door was securely locked but the young girl still entered the room. When they caught and questioned her, she confessed that she used to go for witchcraft meetings at night spiritually and started pointing to those who she claimed were witches and wizards in the community.

Because of this issue, his sister had attempted to commit suicide. One of the members of the community had died over this issue, while another one had ran into the forest and had not been seen ‘til this moment. He further explained that the community tortured the accused person before their bodies were buried. He said that a spiritualist who claimed to be a prophet had confirmed the confession of the young girl.

He said that there was no progress in the community because of the issue of witchcraft accusations and that he wanted the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua to intercede on behalf of the community.  

Together with King Bokolo Wari and Chief Peter were two women who were accused of being witches.

Later on, the man of God came into the matter. Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied that there would be a great and positive change in his family. He also declared that the young lady who had pointed fingers to community members was not a witch but was only afflicted and therefore, everything she had said should be considered falsehood.

The whole family of Chief Ogburu went on their knees to beg their mother for forgiveness for accusing her falsely of being a witch. Then, the family thanked the man of God for intervening in their affair.

These are but a few of the many testimonies and the man of God concluded his sermon of the day by prophetically advising the congregation and viewers to always seek the face of God in all issues as solution to root of their problems, citing the case of the man at the Beautiful gate: “Look at the man at the Beautiful Gate who was there to collect money. Peter and John said, ‘Silver and Gold, I do not have. Rise up and walk’. The lame man thought that he was not there for the miracle but for money. God knew that money couldn’t solve the problem.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

EVANG

Bill Subritzky, a renowned healing and deliverance evangelist in his eighties from Dove ministries, New Zealand came to acknowledge the goodness of God through the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua. Evangelist Subritzky told the congregation and viewers worldwide that he had travelled to many countries and had many crusades but when he saw what was happening at The SCOAN, he was astounded. EVANG 2 He testified that after Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for him, he saw a radical transformation in his ministry and has since then being spreading the good news of the mighty power of God working through the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua.

FROM GRASS TO GRACE

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

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

ESSIEN+

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“GOD, THIS IS TOO MUCH!”

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

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

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

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

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