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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

After a powerful prayer line where people were disconnected from any demonic influence in their lives, Prophet T.B. Joshua entered the teeming cathedral and gave an enlightening sermon titled, ‘A True Prophet’. Asking how one will tell who is a true prophet or a false prophet and using the book of 1 John 4:1, he said the one having a divine spirit that comes from above is meek, peaceable and humble, and refrains from all impurities of this world. He said that the spirit speaks only when God wishes it to speak whereas others are always ready to pray. He added people generally have the wrong impression that healing, miracles, the spirit of prophecy and all of God’s blessings are wrought at the will of the person concerned. This is why people easily feel a prophet should be able to pray anytime, not minding whether it is the right time or not. A true prophet however will not pray without spirit intimation. He explained that without direction from the Spirit, if they give, they give of themselves; they prophesy of themselves; that is why there are prophecies without accomplishment; healings without results.

In a tribute to his late mother, Prophet T.B. Joshua said that she had advised him that when he did not seem to receive from God, he should look into his love walk as the Bible in Mark 12:31 says we should love our neighbour as ourselves. He explained that when the hour of her departure came, he had sent for her and she was with him for a day and they discussed. He said he did not know how to relate to her the message that he had received from God because it was news that no one wants to hear. However, he had learned from reading the Bible that the issue of departure can be delayed by prayer or by waiting in faith (Isaiah 38:4; Luke 7:2). He told his mother that no matter how upright we are, we still need to rededicate ourselves. He explained how he told her, “Everyone has been tempted; I have been tempted; you have been tempted and we will continue to be challenged by issues that violate our conscience. We all face the temptation to do the wrong thing but there is a way – Jesus is the Way”. He said that when we give our lives to Jesus and make Him our boss, CEO and Director in all we do, we are under His supervision to do all.

He added that although his brothers and sisters had wanted to help their dear mother medically, her departure could not be delayed by human sympathy; he told her to be in an attitude of prayer. He said that, “When it is time for man’s departure, nothing can delay it except waiting in faith or through prayer”. The man of God added that we have read about many Biblical characters whose departure was delayed. Hezekiah was rich and favoured and when he cried out to God, God answered him in Isaiah 38:4 “I have heard your prayer and I have seen your tears, surely I will add to your days, 15 years.” The prophet explained that unchangeable means, what will happen will still happen.

He referred to the late President of Ghana, Professor John Evans Atta Mills, saying that, “My dear father President Atta Mills – if there is anyone that would want the late president to spend 200 years on this earth, I am number one.”

He recalled a phone call he had made to the late president a month and a week ago in which he described a vision that he had seen of cloud covering his apartment. He told him that he should be prayerful because he had seen his body being transfigured to a celestial realm. He had also advised the president who was planning to travel to the USA to be prayerful because of the vision. Speaking to the congregation, the man of God said, “When clouds come down to pick you up, it is a hero’s welcome.”

The man of God had also told the president that his coming 68th birthday should be dedicated to God through fasting and prayer. He explained that the birthday was not celebrated on Emmanuel TV because there was no way you could wish Happy Birthday without saying, “Long life’.

Speaking on why he had not travelled to Ghana for the last three years, the prophet said that he could not go anywhere without first hearing from God. He added that he would love to be there anytime he heard from God, especially because, according to him, Ghana was his second home.  Still speaking on the departure of the late Ghanaian President, Professor John Evans Atta Mills, he said that he knew where he was going, adding “Let your soul admire where he is and pray to be there one day.” He emphasised, “It is a wonderful grace to know where you are going. You need not fear where you are going when you know Jesus is going with you.”

He ended his message saying that a pastor leads best when his people get behind him.

NATIVE ENERGY CRUSHED BY GOD’S POWER

When Mr Oba Yabrifa Ebiundu (a witch doctor) was encountered by the prophet during the previous Monday service, his true identity was revealed through a word of prophecy. The man of God told him that he was a witch doctor with powers and energy that he used even to cause and stop rain. He immediately confirmed the prophet’s words and his wife added that the small demons appeared to her and attacked her when they were coming to The SCOAN. After the video of the prophecy, footage of Yabrifa in his community shrine as a Chief Priest and villagers worshipping him was played.

Mr Yabrifa accompanied by his wife and son then came into the service to tell his story. He introduced himself as a witch doctor and chief priest who was the father of every colour who served the ‘god of justice’. He explained that he was the custodian of the deity which was an inheritance from his grandfather. He said that from when he was a small child, he would go to the river to catch fish for his mother and preferred spending time in the river than going to school or staying at home. Initially wanting to reject the inheritance of the chief priest, he tried to do a security job but the deity appeared to his employers in the form of his father and warned them to release him because he was a royal chief priest.

Then, on one fateful day during a local festival, Mr Yabrifa physically felt a force enter him, eventually leading him to a river where he stayed in the depths of the water for several hours. The next moment Mr Yabrifa realised that he was in the centre of the diabolic shrine, being crowned as chief priest.

He was taught how to make charms for people but despite his ‘native energy’, he knew that something was disturbing him. Although people flocked from far and wide to pay homage to him and partake in the native ceremonies where hard liquor was poured and animals sacrificed, Mr Yabrifa remained in poverty while the demons regularly attacked his family members. He explained how when pastors came and held crusades next to his shrine, praying against the idols he worshipped, he would be provoked and invoke rain to come and stop their crusade. He further said that the deity never allowed him to shake anyone’s hand as his hand was reserved for feeding the deity alone. He also never bowed for anyone or removed his cap or shoes as the deity always told him that he was to be worshipped and was above everyone else.   Referring to his son, he said that he also had native powers and was his second in command.

Mr Yabrifa explained that he kept warning his wife to stop watching Emmanuel TV because of the deliverances God used T.B. Joshua and the wise men to do were beyond his own native power. Eventually forced to come to The SCOAN because of his poverty and wretched life as a smoker, drunkard and womanizer, Mr Yabrifa never thought that he would be discovered. After the prophecy, he explained that he had had a dream in which Prophet T.B. Joshua followed him to his village and helped him set the idols ablaze and deliver the community. Upon listening to Mr Yabrifa, Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke on the need of his followers also coming to The SCOAN for their own deliverance.

THE ARENA OF LIBERTY!

The prophet led the congregation and viewers in a powerful time of prayer, saying, “I can see you being delivered, healed. You yoke, bondage, I command you to be loosed in Jesus’ name”. Truly, the people were disconnected from every demonic activity as they agreed with T.B. Joshua and prayed along in faith. After the prayer, the man of God moved through the entire auditorium giving words of prophecy and counselling to the people as intimated by the Spirit of God. In the second service, the auditorium was full to the brim with more people awaiting their freedom and the wise men using the authority in the name of Jesus continued to command any evil spirit to leave the people. We thank God for setting his people free in the arena of liberty.

Here is a wonderful testimony from a woman in the USA who was healed of heavy bleeding after praying with T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV.

The Parkhotyuk Family

Lyubov Parkhotyuk is the mother of 7 children and wife of an awesome pastor living in Pasco, Washington State in the USA. More than a month ago, she discovered heavy bleeding, that continued for 30 days. Working as a nurse, she went to great doctors, who gave her medicine, but it didn’t change her situation. She consulted some of her trusted doctor friends from oversees, who sent her medicine, but even that brought no improvement.

On Saturday Night, 5th of November, she prayed with Prophet TB Joshua on Emmanuel TV. After prayer, her bleeding immediately stopped. It’s been more than a week, and her husband and her both testify to the miracle working power of Jesus, that set her free of the bleeding.

There was a woman in the Bible who had similar problem, but this problem lasted for 12 years. This lady spent all her possessions on doctors, but could not be cured. Once she heard about Jesus, she touched him and was cured of her sickness.

Jesus is the same today. Distance is not a barrier. Faith is all that you need. Some people are writing to us asking for the Anointing Water, which God uses mighty to bring healing. But I want you to notice, that Lyubov, just used her faith while praying with TB Joshua and she was healed. Jesus can heal you as well, by prayer with TB Joshua, just like He can heal you through Anointing Water, just like He can use any medium.

Here is the clip of prayer with TB Joshua. Why don’t you release your faith & receive your miracle right now by praying with him? Your miracle is WAITING!

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

 

THE OBJECT OF FAITH IS GOD

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

 

TOTAL DELIVERANCE FROM EATING SAND

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

 

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

 

 

 

MAN DELIVERED FROM THE SPIRIT OF ROBBERY

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

 

 

 

 

 

YOUNG LADY DELIVERED FROM MANY EVIL SPIRITS

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

 

ANOINTING WATER DELIVERS THE WORLD

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

 

WRISTBAND WRIGGLES POLICE OFFICER FROM DEATH

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

 

CEASED MENSTRUATION REVIVED AFTER LAYING HANDS

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

MRS CHIKE DELIVERED FROM MARINE SPIRIT
Following a very interesting message titled, ‘The Mystery Of God’s Grace’ by Wise Man Harry,

Wise Man Harry

Prophet T.B. Joshua highlighted some key events of the previous Sunday service and a video clip was activated upon his request. The clip was that of Mr and Mrs Christian Chioke in which the husband offered to abandon the wife because of her untoward behaviour towards him.

Mr & Mrs Christian Chioke

Showing disdain and arrogance as she came to the altar with her husband, the wife entrapped in the pervading aura of the Holy Spirit began to confess her true nature. She described herself as a giant in the marine world who had destroyed the fortunes of many men including that of her husband. She was second in command in the kingdom and had the power to walk in the water while others swam. She was born with the marine spirit and had four children and wealth in the marine world. She described her husband as a man staying with him, his fortunes having been destroyed by her. They hailed from the same village where he, at 24, met her and married her but she used the opportunity of their togetherness to reduce the once prosperous man from affluence to zero like she did to many other men whom she entrapped into sex relationships with her powers. What she enjoyed was destroying men and she had a snake in her which she used as a means of doing the havoc to men. She had used her powers in the snake and her eyes to cause the downfall of many men and pastors. Her voice on the phone could also seduce men. Her attempt on Prophet T.B. Joshua in that regard failed because of the latter’s unique anointing.

Mr & Mrs Christian Chioke

She met her husband in 2001 in their village when he came for a chieftaincy title conferred on him. On that occasion, they exchanged addresses and phone numbers after which she travelled to visit him in Kaduna. She used her visit to turn the man from prosperity to poverty after which she left him but reunited with him in Port Harcourt when his fortunes seemed to revive. In Port Harcourt, she gave his fortunes a final blow that reduced him to nothing other than a big boy who lived in an apartment rented by her. Before then, he had been deceived by friends to borrow money from banks to enhance his business. Even though he felt he had paid the money, the banks came and confiscated his vehicles and property for defaulting. In many cases, he would notice that his money got lost without cause and in many cases he noticed that his wife acquired huge amounts of money without effort. She confessed that she could cause money to be paid into her bank account or her wardrobe through her spiritual powers.

Mr & Mrs Christian Chioke

Having watched Emmanuel TV somewhere, both came to the Church and the woman positioned herself where she thought she could seduce the prophet but luck was not on her side as the mass prayer disarmed her and reduced her power to a nullity.
After the deliverance of the couple, Christian shrugged his shoulders in refusal to accept her as his wife any more maintaining that she had destroyed his business and fortune. She knelt down to beg him and also sought the assistance of the prophet in this regard, reminding Christian that she was a new being after the deliverance. The prophet assured Christian that they would rise together as they fell together and that he should embrace her in marriage without misgivings. Following this assurance, he stretched his hands to welcome his wife into a new matrimony.

ANTHONY URHIE NOW BUBBLING IN HEALTH AND AFFLUENCE
As a way of confirming the assurance, the prophet had another video clip played, relating to a victim of the internet. In it a young man, named, Urhie Anthony who wanted a foreign Master degree and a foreign scholarship in addition to his degrees, linked up with a man on the internet through whom he hoped to actualize his ambition.

Anthony Urhie Before And After of His Healing

In course of their relationship on the internet, Anthony, an accountant by profession, demanded a picture of his respected internet friend. To his surprise, what Anthony received after a long delay was a picture of a demon with two horns. In reply to Anthony’s enquiries, the internet friend merely laughed, ‘ha-ha’ and said that was he. Thereafter, he disconnected all links with Anthony who then began a battle with snakes in his house.Anthony Urhie received prayer from Prophet T.B Joshua In two days, he killed seven snakes in his house. In addition, he noticed internal heat in him and his body was heavy as if he carried twenty bags of cement on himself. His eyes and sight were also affected almost to the point of blindness. After his deliverance and assurances of good health in October last year, he went back to his Delta State.

Anthony Urhie & Friend

He emerged at the altar to prove to Mr Christian Chioke that the prophet’s words of assurance were not empty, as today he, Anthony is back to health and affluence and never needed to wear glasses any more after the deliverance from the ordeal in the hands of the internet serpent. Anthony was accompanied to the Church by his friend, Samuel Marere, who has been his friend through thick and thin.

MRS SEFI DELIVERS HER BABY SAFELY IN THE SCOAN

Mrs Sefi & Baby

Mrs Sefi’s Baby

A woman who was booked for operation to bring out her baby came to The SCOAN to seek the face of the Lord in her plight. Received by the Wise Man who prayed for her and prophesied that she would deliver a baby girl, Mrs Blessing Sefi actually delivered a baby girl as prophesied by the wiseman. Glory to Jesus!

Donavan & Nikky Are Now Parents

DONAVAN AND NIKKY ARE NOW PARENTS

Nikky & Baby

Another testimony came from Mr Donavan and his wife, Nikky, from South Africa who attended the December 2009 Fruit Of The Womb Meeting after exhausting modern medicine to deliver themselves from barrenness. As the prophet revealed, the Lord had instructed him to obtain an apron and use it to clean the altar, Bible and pulpit and cause it to be passed round all participants of the Meeting. Like their co-participants, the Donavan family touched the apron which wiped their barrenness away and by February 2010, Nikky had conceived. Today, they are happy parents of a baby girl. May the Lord’s name be extolled!

EMILIA WILLIAMS HEALED OF DIABETES

Emilia suffered Diabetes

For over 33 years Emilia, a Cameroonian, had suffered from diabetes. She came by faith to The SCOAN where she attended the prayer line and collected the Anointing Water before travelling to the USA where she lives. Applying the Anointing Water after prayer as instructed, she received deliverance from diabetes as revealed in a hospital test which confirmed the reduction of her blood sugar from 130 to 74 and she came to give her testimony in full gratitude to God.

THE ANOINTING WATER ACROSS THE WORLD
A clip of the miracles associated with the Anointing Water was on the screen and all watched how country after country it remained constant in delivering people from contrary spirits and giving healing to many people from all forms of sickness. Some of the places visited were Kazikstan in China where a woman with stiff neck was healed, the USA where many with contrary spirits were delivered and others suffering from ailments were healed. The same feat was repeated in Jamaica, Ukraine and Russia proving that God has equal control over the fortunes of his children anywhere in the world.

MR MADUKA HEALED OF ASTHMA

David Maduka

David Maduka suffered the attack of asthma for seven years during which time he sought healing in modern and traditional medicines without success and depended on an inhaler for breathing. A friend drew his attention to Emmanuel TV after which he came to The SCOAN for the Anointing Water. He got his final healing after administering the Anointing Water as prescribed. Thanks be to God!

THE CHUKWUKAS TO BECOME PARENTS AFTER 15 YEARS OF BARRENNESS

Mr & Mrs Fedelis Chukwuka

Mr Fidelis Chukwuka of Delta, Nigeria and his wife were barren for 15 years because of low sperm count among other complications. Unfortunately, even though a solution looked in sight in The SCOAN, people discouraged him with the story that the prophet was difficult to see. When he finally came in May, he collected the Anointing Water and they applied it. By the following month, his wife was pregnant and doctors who were surprised asked her whether she was still in the first marriage. By God’s grace the Chukwukas will soon be proud parents. To God be the glory!

MRS STELLA OKORO DELIVERED FROM THE SPIRIT OF DRUNKENNESS

Mrs Okoro

Like her husband who possessed the spirit of drunkenness and died of liver infection induced by incessant drinking, Mrs Okoro saw herself drinking alcohol for years under the same spirit. She could drink 13 bottles a day under the influence of the spirit making her shun her responsibilities towards her children. Getting home after the drinking spree, she would be reminded by her disappointed children of her late home coming.
In a beer parlour, she watched Emmanuel TV and became touched enough to come to The SCOAN for the Anointing Water. She administered the Anointing Water according to prescription and something came out of her after that, making her develop hatred even for cold beer which was her favourite. We thank God for the miracle.

ANOINTING WATER RENDERED ENGR STEPHEN KURE BULLET-PROOF

Engr Stephen Kure

In his habit of taking the Anointing Water daily, Engr Stephen Kure went to his site after that ritual and ran into armed robbers there who demanded his car key. Though he gave them the car key, they shot him at a close range in the belly and blood oozed out from the stomach. Later, it was seen that the bullets merely scratched the stomach; they could not penetrate owing to the Anointing Water. No weapon fashioned by the enemy against Kure prospered, Glory to Jesus!

PASTOR SHIKO APWAM ADMINISTERS ANOINTING WATER IN HIS CHURCH
A minister of God in Johannesburg, South Africa, Shiko Apwam having been convinced of God’s power in the Anointing Water met Prophet T.B. Joshua and collected a sample for administration in his church. As he did so, the anointing in the water sent contrary spirits in disarray. Many who were afflicted with infirmities were healed and he advised his congregation to be watching Emmanuel TV.

PROPHECY REVIEW
As the service went on, the prophet had cause to draw the attention of his listeners to one of his prophecies six months earlier. The prophecy related to the longest serving president in Africa in the Arab nation being under day service, pressure to resign. Also in the mass prayer a man said to be an armed robber and assassin vomited an egg. The service was brought to a temporary close awaiting Monday noon.

Sunday 12th September 2010 proved to be a day of freedom, light and liberty for the thousands who attended The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations in Lagos, Nigeria, a testimony mirrored also by the millions who were watching the service live and direct on Emmanuel TV.

With repentant armed robbers being financially supported, broken homes and families joyously reunited, the sick and afflicted miraculously healed, prophetic revelations striking the root of people’s problems and powerful prayer bringing out a multitude of unclean spirits, to say the service was action-packed is an under-statement. To coin the words of Prophet T.B. Joshua, “The Book of Acts is not mere history – it is the pattern of what Jesus Christ wants His church to be today.” The words of our Saviour in John 14:12 spring to mind: “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” Blessed are our eyes for seeing such wonders in this day and generation! This is practical Christianity.

Prophet TB Joshua

Prophet TB Joshua - Love brought us into being. We are love's products.

Wise Man Racine

Wise Man Racine - Your confession must be absolutely based upon the Word of God

After an inspirational message from Wise Man Racine, titled ‘The Confession Of God’s Word’, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave a short word of encouragement on the virtues of love. “We are love’s products. We are sons and daughters of love. Therefore, let love lead – follow in the light of love,” he exhorted the congregation. He denounced the hypocritical attitude of those who are ready to show love for selfish reasons when they are seeking a job or political appointment, but change their attitude when they come to church to condemn and criticise at whim. “Without love, our meeting here today is nothing,” he added, drawing the people’s attention to Romans 13:9, which states: “The commandments, ‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ ‘Do not covet,’ and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this one rule: ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’ ”

A man of action who believes in the principle of leading by example, Prophet T.B. Joshua went on to practically demonstrate such love – not just in word and tongue but in deed and in truth (1 John 3:18). For the past few months, various armed robbers and social miscreants have been staying in The SCOAN for rehabilitation and reformation, following their deliverance from the spirit that pushed them to steal, kill and destroy. Among them was Samuel, an armed robber whose past misconduct was beyond ordinary. Samuel possessed the spirit of a snake and armed robbery, his body full of evil powers to the extent that he could disappear at will and re-appear inside a banks ‘Strong Room’ to loot the contents.

He explained that before his deliverance, he had no atom of sympathy or empathy for human beings, and had “wasted many souls”, the money made from his robbery only channelled into seeking more evil powers. He told the rapt audience that when the Spirit of God arrested him during the deliverance, he saw the demons appear to him, saying that since he had chosen to leave them, they would remove their equipment from his body. And from that moment, Samuel’s life has never been the same! He has lived in The SCOAN for some months, daily spending time in prayer and being taught God’s Word and ways. According to Samuel, he never had any concept of God before as he saw the evil spirits who possessed him as ‘his god’. Samuel received the sum of N200,000 to start a new life in Christ, alongside three other reformed robbers, who were given the same amount.

David Brown

David Brown - Delivered from the spirit of robbery!

Among the other robbers was David Brown, an indigene of Rivers State who schooled in Kingston University, United Kingdom, and came out with a First Class Degree in Architecture. However, the obviously intelligent young man has literally lived in the prison for the last 15 years, having been incarcerated eight times for crimes he had no consciousness of committing. After being cursed by his aunt that ‘the prison would be his home’, a strange spirit would overpower David and lead him inside a stranger’s house where he would sit down until the owner returned to meet him there and raise the alarm. Incriminated by a bunch of keys always found in his possession, David would be beaten, taken to the police cell and then to prison. Within weeks of his release, the spirit would take control again, and the cycle of imprisonment would continue, to the point where David actually preferred prison to the outside world.

However, after his remarkable deliverance, David testified that although temptation still comes, he has strength to rebuke and resist the evil spirit, standing firm on God’s Word. He also received the sum of N200, 000, as the entire congregation worshipped God for the four young men whose lives were totally transformed through their coming to The SCOAN. Not only were they delivered from the evil spirits, they were fed and clothed by the ministry, filled with God’s Word and financially supported to start a new life on the foundation of faith. The evidence of Jesus Christ is lives changed!

The Ezuagba Family

The Ezuagba Family at The SCOAN

After the robber’s testimonies, it was time for the reconciliation of homes that had been broken owing to various allegations and strange experiences within the family. First came the case of the Izuagba family. Mrs Cornelia Izuagba accused her son Elochukwu of being a ritualist, killing his sister and planning to use her for a ritual. The genesis of the problem was the downfall of his business, after which Cornelia, affectionately referred to by the prophet as ‘Mama’ began seeing him moving with the wrong set of people who were known to have dipped their hands into ritualism. When her son brought some yam as a gift to her, that night she received a strange attack in the dream which also affected her health, leading her to conclude that he was attempting to use her for a ritual. The rumour had since spread throughout the entire community, Elochukwu being labelled a murderer.

T.B. Joshua resolved the case by praising the stance of Mama against the immoral friends in the life of her son, saying that to have such a mother was a blessing as she was ready to fight any evil in her children’s lives. He clarified that Elochukwu was not a ritualist and had no hand in the death of his sister, but truly he was moving with the wrong type of people. It was a touching moment as Mr. Izuagba embraced his mother and promised not to be involved in such ungodly entanglements again. Three more families were also reconciled as God’s truth dispelled the chaos caused by satan’s lies.

Reconciliation

God has written us into a revolutionary and unprecedented story of reconciliation, in which hostilities are broken and enemies become friends!

Cameroon-Prof

Unable to walk for six long years - restricted to a wheelchair

Receiving the Anointing Water

Prof receives the Anointing Water in Jesus' Name!

The man of God continued by introducing the new ‘Anointing Water’, followed by a practical proof of God’s power working through it. A Professor from the University of Yaoundé, Cameroon had come to The SCOAN restricted to a wheelchair for six long years. Sitting amidst the sick and afflicted in the overflow congregation, he was wheeled forward by evangelists to the church entrance where the new Anointing Water for healing and deliverance was ministered to him. It was an incredible moment as the Prof rose to his feet for the first time in six years and began to walk. To His power, nothing is impossible!

Walking Out Of The Wheelchair

Walking out of the wheelchair - to God be the glory!

It was time for the prayer-line, as literally thousands from across Nigeria, Africa and the whole world came to receive a touch from heaven. Those with both physical and spiritual problems were in the line, and as the Wise Men prayed, the lighting of God flowed through them to bring healing, deliverance and freedom! Demons were cast out, sicknesses were healed, needs were met and problems were solved – all in the name of Jesus Christ.

Mass Prayer Deliverance

Deliverance during Mass Prayer at The SCOAN

The Mass Prayer in the second service was another powerful time of prayer as the Holy Spirit exposed all unclean spirits amidst the people. One of those exposed was a cultist who had already donated his own son to the cult. Prophecy then revealed another man in the congregation who had murdered his uncle and had been tormented by the spirit of death ever since. More prophetic revelations ensued as the root causes of people’s problems were uncovered and the solution immediately provided. At the end of the day, the worshipers went home and the viewers at home switched off their television with a resounding conviction: ‘Jesus is alive – He never said goodbye!’ Glory be to God!

It was another glorious service at The Synagogue Church of All Nations on the 27th of June, 2010. No doubt, the events that took place will continue to linger on in the minds of both the participants and millions of viewers all over the world. It was not a day to be missed as many remained glued to their seats and the screens of their TV set as there was so much expectation in the air and no one was ready to receive second-hand information.
Prophet T.B. Joshua commenced the service with a short message in which he asked the question: What do you have? What item do you own? Continuing his message, he said that everything we have is actually only being borrowed from God. Therefore, all we are doing is giving back what we have been given from His generous hands. He then enjoined all and sundry to love their neighbour as themselves even though their neighbour could be their enemy, those who do not share the same faith with them – they are to love them all, as love is the greatest virtue. He further said that we need to forgive because we need to be forgiven. After this faith lifting message, Prophet TB Joshua invited one of the wise men to deliver the day’s sermon.
The sermon titled – Worship God in Spirit and in truth, was delivered by the wise man, Christopher. In his message, he directed all to the Book of John 4:1-end charging all to take note of Vs 19-24. Verse 24 says: “God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth”. The wise man stated further that the Holy Spirit is the best influence and Christians are commanded to walk in the spirit. The best antidote against the poison of sin is to walk in the spirit, he added. He went further to say that if we do not worship God, who is a Spirit, in the spirit, we miss the end of worship. Ending his message, the wise man said that every part of our worship must be guided and regulated by the Word of God. We must worship God with fixedness of thought and a flame of affection. We should bring all our affection and desire to the throne of God.

PRAYER LINE:
27th January, 2010 is a day Mrs Bona Helen from Cameroon will live to remember- the day that five years of anguish and sorrow was abruptly brought to an end. As the shouts of ‘I can now walk’ filled the air, one could not but notice the sigh of great relief on the face of Bona’s husband. He could not believe his eyes as a while ago, his wife was seated helplessly in a car because she could not walk due to degeneration of the lumbar spine and had been booked for an operation. She was also suffering from diabetes. This turn of event in Bona’s life took place at the prayer line section of the church. As one of the wise men was praying for the people, Bona’s husband in a loud voice said, ‘Man of God, my wife cannot walk’. As the wise man prayed for Bona, her bones soon received strength and she rose to her feet and began to walk, unaided. What a moment of joy this was for Bona as she walked majestically for the first time in five years amidst the shouts of praise from members of the congregation. This is just one out of many spectacular events that happened during the prayer line session.
As the healing was taking place, words of prophecy were also given to some people to expose the root cause of their problems. There was a case of a couple, Mr & Mrs John Oyadongha from Bayelsa state in Nigeria. They were in the long row of people at the prayer line. Just before the wise man got to them, the wife was seen shaking vigorously and later fell to the ground. The wise man then went on to prophesy to the husband that there was a man that always came to fight him in the dream. He then assured him that once the wife was delivered from the spirit husband, everything will be over. As Mrs Oyadongha underwent deliverance in the power of the Holy Spirit, she kept rolling on the floor and screaming at the top of her voice, as she certainly was not at ease with herself. Then suddenly, she became calm as the evil spirit left her. Standing up from the ground, she went to where her husband was standing and they gave each other a hug as years of torture from the spiritual husband is finally over. They had come with the problem of barrenness, low sperm count and nightmares. The wise man then gave them words of prophecy that they would come back with a testimony of a bouncing baby.
There were other powerful deliverances that took place during the prayer line session. Indeed, there was no hiding place for the forces of darkness as they were all exposed. As a woman was undergoing deliverance, the evil spirit in her kept saying, ‘I will not leave her’. The wise man said she was wedded spiritually. ‘She is my wife, I will not leave her’, cried the evil spirit in her. However, the fact remains that satan is powerless in the face of God’s armour and power. Suddenly, the woman became calm as she was declared free by the wise man.

MASS PRAYER
Prophet TB Joshua rounded off the first service with a mass prayer. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, he commanded all spirits that were not of Jesus out and immediately, they came rolling out. Prophet TB Joshua also gave powerful prophetic messages one of which concerned a family in the church. According to the man of God, satan had disorganised this family, bringing disunity into it. He further said that he could see an object somewhere outside the church premises and it contained 21 needle-like objects around it. In confirmation of the prophecy, a woman came forward, followed by her husband.


The couple, Mr & Mrs Lawson Ayeni, were then instructed by the man of God to go and bring the object. Minutes later, they came in with the object, accompanied by the husband’s mother as well as the wife’s mother. Explaining how they came about the fetish substance, the husband said he found it in the bed drawer but did not know how it got there. The wife on her own part said she found the object earlier in the bedroom, while doing the house cleaning and had intended to enquire from her husband how it came into the house but she forgot until the husband discovered it too. This strange occurrence brought about disunity between the couple, disorganising the whole family. The man of God said the charm was meant to destroy the womb. He however, declared that the fetish substance was neither from the husband nor from the wife. He then assured them that the whole misery would be unravelled. To this effect, Prophet TB Joshua said he would like to meet with the whole family.

SECOND SERVICE
The second service began with the confession of Mr. Steven, a witch doctor from Cameroon who was exposed close to the end of the first service. The man of God said the witch doctor’s wife was at the point of death. In confirmation, the witch doctor said his wife was terribly sick and had severe itching of the body. On his own part, he said his stomach was terribly hot. The man of God however said he would be set free from this problem after which he would go back to his country and bring his wife and children. Not only that, he would also bring along the whole association of witch doctors that he was involved with. Prophet TB Joshua went on to pray for him and immediately, the stomach problem left him.
Words are not enough to describe the miraculous happenings in this service. They were indeed amazing. We look forward to more of such exciting events in the next Sunday service which will be broadcast live from The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria.

On Sunday the 13th of June 2010, The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations reverberated with the sound of heavenly music as the hundreds upon hundreds of visitors from around the world who had come to celebrate the birthday of Prophet T.B. Joshua the day before, joined The SCOAN congregants to resist the devil and praise Jesus with all their soul.

Welcoming the congregation and viewers worldwide to the service, T.B. Joshua declared, “Jesus purchased your healing, your deliverance and your salvation at the price of great suffering.”

I KNOW YOU ALL THE TIME

The Word of God imparted by one of the wise men, was all about our attitude towards God. Greeting the Church, he said, “My name is Harry, I’m from Greece. By our fruits, you shall know us.” Reading from the book of Job 2:7-10, Harry explained that apart from our Lord Jesus Christ, there is no man or woman of faith that has been tempted as severely as Job, a man who feared God and shunned evil. He said that from the case of Job, we learn that trouble does not require any invitation before it comes. The question is: how do we handle it? If we handle our hard times with care, they will soon turn to good times. Job saw his hard time as a reason for believing God just as he saw his good times as a reason for believing God as well. Job was telling God, whether you save me or not, I will continue to serve You because You are my Saviour. Harry went on to say, that to the carnally minded, this seemed unrealistic but Job’s heart was deeply engaged with God. Harry then asked those listening, as Christians, how many of us would say, “Thank You, Lord for healing me whereas we are still sick, thank You Lord for blessing me whereas the signs of poverty are still there?”

He went on to say that many people today base their spiritual experiences on feelings and emotions – and problems arise when feelings and emotions change. Like Elisha’s servant in 2 Kings 6:15-16, many of us begin to panic and run helter skelter because of what we see. Harry explained that every day, we are exposed to things that are not consistent with the Word of God. When these things control your feelings, and your feelings control your faith, you can be a Christian and yet controlled by satanic devices. For us to be able to say to God, “I know You all the time” Harry said that our faith must be based on something with more stability than our feelings. Picking up his Bible from the altar and holding it up, Harry declared that he didn’t know anything more stable than the Word of God. You may feel great today, tired tomorrow or lonely next week but God’s Word is going to say the same yesterday, today and for ever.

BY THEIR FRUITS, YOU SHALL KNOW THEM

For hundreds of sick and afflicted people who were arranged for prayer at The SCOAN, Sunday was the day they had been waiting for, when they received a touch from Heaven, and the pillars of their problems crumbled.

Among those who had a divine appointment with the Healer, Jesus Christ was Sgt. Okponu Alexander, a 41 year old police officer from Delta who was unable to walk due to posterior disc prolapse and compression of the disc and had been booked for an operation. He was brought to the church in a car, his placard bearing the words, “I CANNOT WALK.” As his wife cried out, pleading for the mercy of God to end her husband’s suffering, one of the wise men, directed by the Spirit of God walked up to the vehicle and began to pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Cries were heard as Sgt. Okponu Alexander placed his legs on the ground, supported and guided by the wise man, rose to his feet and took his first steps of freedom. The crowd shouted and cheered as even those awaiting prayer forgot their own problems and rejoiced in the miraculous healing! A medical doctor, visiting from Mexico, was visibly moved by the miracle and commented that he had actually seen the disc in the man’s back shift into place. For Sgt. Okponu Alexander and his family, the way out had come!

Another man whose darkness turned to glorious light during the prayer line was 70 year old Chief Ola Egbayelo from Ondo who had been blind for the past one and a half years.At the prayer of one of the wise men, the light of God flowed into his system and his eyes were opened! Beaming with joy, he began to follow the wise man who, dressed in a white suit moved through the crowd.

As if that were not all, during the prayer line of the second service, Mrs Deborah Michael from Kwara, also 70 years old, who had been suffering from blindness for 11 years, miraculously received her sight! As the wise man laid his hands on her eyes and prayed in the name of Jesus Christ, her sight was restored and her joy complete.

We certainly saw healing, deliverance and words of prophecy in the power of the name of Jesus as the wise men prayed at the prayer line. By their fruits, you shall know them.

THERE IS NOTHING GOD CANNOT DO

A further testimony that lifted the faith of all those who heard it was that of Mr and Mrs Aderline Onwusalu from Anambra, who had arrived at the church on Friday, straight from the hospital. Mrs Onwusalu was in great pain as she explained that her pregnancy was overdue and the baby was too big for her to deliver naturally. As they prepared to operate her, Mrs Onwusala declared that it was not her portion and headed straight to The SCOAN. One of the wise men stretched his hand and prayed for her, in the words, “Give her strength in Jesus’ name!” At the word, “Out”, the baby was instantly delivered. In the car, outside The SCOAN, Mrs Onwusalu had given birth to her baby instantly and safely. Mr and Mrs Aderline Onwusalu, now joyful parents, came to the Sunday service to testify with their new baby. Speaking of the amazing miracle, Mrs Onwusala said that the doctor had already drawn the marks on her stomach ready for the operation and had warned her that if she left the hospital, the baby in her womb would die. According to the doctor, the baby weighed 4.8 kg and had already stopped breathing. The ecstatic mother did not have enough words to express her joy and gratitude to God for the miracle, as she advised others to believe in God because with God, all things are possible!

LET THERE BE LIGHT!

“In the light of God, darkness has no hiding place.” The voices of the wise men rang out from the altar when the time came to separate the wheat from the chaff. People that had been seated calmly, singing songs and laughing with their neighbours suddenly began falling under the fire of the Holy Spirit, shaking wildly and manifesting. From the far gallery to the altar, those who possessed contrary spirits underwent deliverance.

LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF GOD

Many who had heard the voice of God in the prophetic message given by Prophet T.B. Joshua last Sunday 6th June, 2010 concerning the opening match of the FIFA World Cup 2010 watched the match between South Africa and Mexico. The prophet explained that he was unable to change destiny but only reveal what God says about a situation and then offer advice. As the congregation listened to the prophecy in the service, they were reminded to always listen to the voice of God.

As the service drew to a close, prophetic revelations kept coming – exposing the root causes of people’s problems – as the Lord did not want anyone to leave still with their problem. Among the cases that were exposed was that of Mr and Mrs Udoh freedom and their father from Akwa Ibom. Prophet TB Joshua gave a prophecy about a family that had accused their father of being a wizard, that their case was important and that they should come forward. Mr and Mrs Udoh Freedom came forward with their father, confirming that he had been accused of being a wizard after his two daughters died recently. The prophet then revealed that 80 year old Mr Robson Abel was not a wizard but had been suffering from a mental disorder for the past seven years. To confirm the prophet’s words, the accused man in question remained expressionless and blank as he was vindicated of the accusation of being a wizard and even tried to kneel down together with his son-in-law as the latter asked his father-in-law for forgiveness. His daughter, Mercy, nodding her head confirmed the prophecy, saying that her father did not reason well. Following the prophecy, the family were reconciled as son and daughter begged their father for forgiveness and promised to care for him. They were confident that as the prophecy had exposed the problem, the solution had surely come.

As the service ended, those who left the church and those who switched off their televisions sets – left having seen the name of Jesus working in the Spirit – secured in the knowledge that to His power, nothing is impossible.
