Posts Tagged ‘The SCOAN’

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.

THE SECRET OF FAITH

In a message that was briefly started during the live Saturday service and firmly continued during the Sunday Service, Prophet T.B. Joshua unveiled, in his own words, ‘The Secret Of Faith.’ In the message, he said, “Jesus Christ is the surety of every Word from Matthew 1 to Revelation 22. No Word from God is void of fulfilment for God watches over His Word to perform it. If any Scripture should go by default, Jesus becomes responsible.”

Speaking of the bold confidence a believer has to approach the throne of grace in prayers and supplication, he added, “When you know that the Lord is on your side, your heart becomes quiet. You look up into His face and whisper your request and you know it is going to be granted because it is your Father who is on the throne, it is your Lord who is seated by His side.”

He concluded that faith was not abstract as it could be practiced and told the congregation that despite the challenges life would throw at them, faith was there for them through it all. “In your challenges in life, faith is there for you,” he said. A time of testimonies, mostly concerning the Anointing Water, preceded the powerful message.

 

URINATION WITHOUT OPERATION

Mr Austin Uba, from Imo State, Nigeria came to the church with his wife, Rose and son, Kinsgley to thank God for His wonderful work in his life. He had suffered from a urinary tract blockage, such that he was unable to urinate for a painful period of months. He was referred to India for an operation, by a doctor who had given him a catheter to enable him to pass urine. However, he was told the operation, if conducted, would only have a 50/50 chance of success and there was a high probability that he may not be functional as a man thereafter. Having seen God’s power in action on Emmanuel TV, he decided to come to The SCOAN for healing. After receiving the Anointing Water, he prayed and sprayed it on the affected area as well as in his mouth.

Merely hours later in his hotel room, Mr Uba, to his greatest surprise and delight passed his urine normally without the use of the catheter! Upon returning to the hospital, the doctor said he no longer needed an operation as he was already healed. Mr Uba encouraged people to look up to God and counselled them that He could do for them what He had done for him.

A COCKTAIL OF DRUGS AND DESTRUCTION
Mr Raphael Kpogli from Ghana had been a drug seller, smoker and addict for some 30 years, dealing specifically in heroin, Indian hemp (marijuana) and cocaine, while living a life of recklessness, waste and violence. In a shocking account of the debilitating and destiny-decaying effects of drug addiction, he narrated his sordid life experiences. He literally had to smoke a ‘cocktail’ of these drugs before going to bed, talking communicably with people or even eating, his wife and children always afraid of him at home due to his erratic nature. Having travelled to over six countries as a drug dealer, he acknowledged that although he never used a gun, he had caused multiple deaths by introducing drugs to people. His insatiable lust for this ‘cocktail’ of chaos crippled him financially as he sold cars, properties and even stole his wife’s clothes and jewelleries to sell to pay for his indulgence. A once thriving and intelligent man was reduced to a nervous and hate-filled wreck, staying in a single room in a house for months on end and only emerging to purchase more of the poison that was slowly crippling and killing him.

However, his wife, whom never doubted that one day God would turn her husband around, kept praying for his life to change and stood by him through thick and thin. When a few drops at the bottom of a bottle of Anointing Water were given to the Kpogli’s, Mr Raphael had no idea that within them contained the freedom he so sorely needed. After ministering the Anointing Water, Mr Kpogli said he felt a cold sensation envelop his body, as if a wave of liquid love was cascading through his entire system and reverberating within to eject all dependency on drugs and the darkness that embodied them. Mr Kpogli, who was about to embark on a rare journey to Accra, was worried at how he would complete the journey without taking the drugs. However, after many hours of travelling without even a thought of the substance, he realised that all previous craving for the drugs had disappeared. He tucked into a hearty meal and completed it, the first meal he had finished without taking drugs in 30 years. After three weeks of a drug-free life, he travelled to The SCOAN to share this life-changing testimony, exhorting friends who were still in the same business to abandon a life fuelled and filled by drugs which had reduced most of them to criminality. He said people must depend on God to be released from their plagues and a life of uncertainty.

TUTORSHIP FROM ABOVE


Miss Taffy Mukombami came all the way from Ireland to share her remarkable testimony. The Zimbabwean student explained that she had been both stressed and depressed because of the challenges she had faced to gain citizenship in Ireland. However, after discovering Emmanuel TV, her situation changed drastically. After being opportune to receive the Anointing Water, she prayerfully sprayed it on her application form for citizenship and sent it off. To her greatest surprise, a couple of months later, her residency was granted, something that some people had been waiting years to receive!

Aside from this, Taffy had also been facing difficulties with her Master of Arts Programme and almost took a year off due to the tremendous stress and pressure. However, at the verge of giving up, she saw Prophet T.B Joshua appear in her dream, take her to the library and show her the books she needed to study to perform excellently in her academic pursuits. Upon waking up, she was shocked to discover that the books he had divinely pointed out to her were exactly what she had been looking for. After the submission of her thesis, which she proudly showed the congregation, she explained that her results were suggestive of her obtaining a First Class a result, an achievement she knows is a product of Divine providence.

BARRENNESS EXPELLED
After being barren for nine long years, Mr and Mrs Ebong Victory came to The SCOAN to share their wonderful testimony. Medically, the couple had been diagnosed as having a low sperm count. Mrs Ebong had come to The SCOAN in April 2012, got the Anointing Water and prayed with her husband. After a month of administering some, she became pregnant. She promised to come for thanksgiving soon, with her child. Her husband was obviously full of happiness as he stood close to her in church. She said people should trust in God have faith because He is the Author and Finisher of our faith.

 

In another wonderful testimony to God’s provision of fruitfulness, a video was replayed showing Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesying to a woman, asking her of a medical report and revealing that her stomach had been cut though the purpose was neither achieved nor her menstruation regular. Mr & Mrs Anvor Ely from South Africa came forward in response to the video. After many years of barrenness, Mrs Anvor had undergone an operation in her womb but the result remained unsuccessful. However, after visiting The SCOAN and receiving the prophecy from Prophet T.B. Joshua, the couple decided to trust in God for supernatural provision.

They narrated how after the prophecy, Prophet T.B. Joshua had counselled them in the office, stating that the sickness was ‘cancelled’ and giving them Anointing Water. After ministering it and continuing to trust in God, building their faith by listening to messages on Emmanuel TV, Mrs Ely became pregnant! She stood before The SCOAN congregation to testify that she was now several months pregnant, to the glory of God! Mr Ely thanked God for the inspiring messages on Emmanuel TV and exhorted viewers that Jesus has the solution to all fundamental issues of life.

POSSESSED BY PORNOGRAPHY
A video was replayed in which Prophet TB Joshua prophesied to a woman about her marriage and how the internet had played an active role in their relationship. Coming forward with her husband to confirm the prophecy, Mrs MacAlexander explained to the congregation how the prophecy was true. A Kenyan working in Nigeria, she said she had not seen her husband more than twice in two years due to his regular travels but they talked trough the internet.

They would regularly strip naked before each other on a webcam and even engage in household activities such as cooking while viewing each other’s nudity. However, both soon took to watching pornography on the internet to satisfy themselves, soon birthing an addiction that almost crippled their marriage. The few occasions they did manage to spend time together, Mrs MacAlexander explained that the couple had no affection for each other whatsoever and she had determined within to leave the marriage before the prophecy was given. Although she had a well paid job, she explained that she could not give any account of how she spent the money, adding that after she had started viewing pornography, she began to sleep with a strange man in her dreams.

Her husband, Alexander, from Imo State, Nigeria, reiterated what his wife had said. They had met in Nairobi, Kenya five years ago but had barely spent months together as he was a regular traveller. After talking on the internet, he also had resorted to masturbation and pornography, too. He explained he began to have harrowing dreams of sleeping with a strange woman and finding himself in a cemetery with dead people. Career wise, despite connections and experience as a music producer, he found himself in a cycle of disappointment and missed opportunities.

Prophet TB Joshua spoke on the tortuous nature of pornography, a sin he stated was even worse than fornication. He said up to 70% of the world populace struggled with pornography, specifying that the youth in particular were affected. Following their confession, TB Joshua assured the couple that deliverance, restoration and reconciliation would follow and they would not leave The SCOAN unless they were completely free.

FROM CHURCH-BOY TO CULT-LEADER
A video was replayed in which a young man manifested after prayer from Wise Man Racine at The SCOAN prayer line and the spirit spoke through him that it was a strong man which has been in him since birth. Chinedu Anagor and his parents came forward following the clip to share their experiences. Chinedu, a graduate of music from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, was an obedient, trustworthy and churchgoing young man before his entrance into university. However, influence from bad friends and a desire to feel part of the ‘crowd’ led the intelligent student to delve into the dark arrays of cultism, as he was initiated into the ‘Buccaneers’. Confessing that his parents were hearing this for the first time, Chinedu explained how he displayed a different attitude at home while growing steadily deeper into cultism and its attendant diabolic activities at school.

His roles in the cult graduated to include initiating other students, consulting oracles on the cult’s behalf and acting as a bodyguard to the cult leader – all high ranking positions. With little concentration on his academic career, Chinedu ended up spending 10 years in university before graduating, deceiving his parents that he had completed his course whereas actually he hadn’t. He confessed to the fact that he raped girls, caused violence and threatened people, though maintaining a pretence of calmness and coolness to the casual onlooker. Through God’s influence, he was finally delivered at The SCOAN, after which he began to genuinely regret his past actions for the first time. Falling to his knees in tears, he begged T.B. Joshua to assist him to apologise to his parents for his disrespect and lifestyle of lies and deceit. Shedding tears, his aged father embraced his son, as the congregation looked on, many themselves wiping tears from their eyes at the touching reconciliation and incredible change in the life of Chinedu through the deliverance. Prophet T.B. Joshua counselled parents to learn a lesson from Chinedu’s experience and ensure their children are regularly in the house of God.

ABILITY IN DISABILITY


One of the events of the day was the giving of scholarships to various physically challenged students who are part of The SCOAN Scholarship Scheme. The students were given different sums of money according to their various scholastic needs, totalling N3 million. They included the blind, crippled, deformed and amputees. One of the spokespersons of the group, Olurundere Adenike, said she had no support for education, and when admitted to the University of Lagos, she had dropped out for lack of funds. However, she eventually gained admission to the University of Ibadan to read Languages and English, requesting assistance from Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV Partners to pursue her academic dreams of excellence. Also, Emmanuel Aderemi, a student of Political Science, University of Lagos, also spoke on the uniqueness of the opportunity given them to be part of the Scholarship program.

 

The service was concluded in a fiery Mass Prayer in which the finger of God Almighty manifested mightily among the congregants. As the Prophet remarked, what a God we have to worship, what a son we have to praise and what a future lies before us. To those whose lives are centred in Christ Jesus, better is not good enough; the best is yet to come.

“Ghanaians, after thinking all round, I never knew what bad I had done to some Ghanaians, who specialize in telling lies, fabricating falsehoods to malign me and my ministry on the pages of newspapers and websites.

“For how long will I reply these? Many of such falsehoods have been written and published before now, even to the extent that when I see a vision for the nation of Ghana, I have to say it in parable, e.g. the word ‘revolution’ I said last time on Emmanuel TV and published in many Ghanaian newspapers e.g. Daily Graphic.

“I am supposed to itemize the word ‘revolution’ in three stages but because of different perceptions by detractors who would give different meanings to it. The word ‘revolution’ is a fundamental change in a social system. It is also a great transformation in a given polity, occasioned by different circumstances or experiences of life, e.g. nature.

“I said in my last prophetic message that there would be a ‘revolution’. It was in parable. I used the word ‘revolution’ because I don’t want the detractors to use it for their selfish purpose. The word ‘revolution’ is broken into three segments e.g. circumstances that could be caused by nature, politics, circumstances beyond human redemption. I am praying for the nation and the leaders.

“Let us all come together and stand for the nation in prayer. May God answer our prayer. The story published this week on Ghana Web and some newspapers, and broadcast repeatedly on Ghanaian radios that Prophet T. B Joshua “knows the winner of Ghana’s election; predicts round two of Ghana’s election; and speaks on Ghana’s election” – all these are false and fabricated by detractors to suit their selfish purpose.

“Ghanaians, don’t listen to the fathers of lies; they cannot force me to speak what God has not said. Enough is enough; touch not my anointed.

“My people in Ghana, we all fight similar battles, just camouflaged differently. Once again, all the stories were not from me. If there is any prophecy, you will see it on Emmanuel TV.

“God bless the nation Ghana. God bless our leaders.”

ATTENTION!!! URGENT MESSAGE TO ALL TRUE FRIENDS AND PARTNERS OF THE SCOAN AND EMMANUEL TV:

We are saddened to discover that people are still being deceived by individuals on Facebook claiming to be representing Prophet T.B. Joshua, The SCOAN or Emmanuel TV.

As we have stated several times before, TB Joshua, The SCOAN and Emmanuel TV has only ONE official Facebook page, which is: TB Joshua Ministries (http://www.facebook.com/pages/TB-Joshua-Ministries/103470916440360). ANY OTHER ACCOUNT CLAIMING TO REPRESENT TB JOSHUA, THE SCOAN OR EMMANUEL TV IS FRAUDULENT!!!

There is no official personal account on Facebook for TB Joshua, the Wise Men or any individuals connected with the ministry. A quick search on Facebook shows well over 100 people have created pages claiming to be T.B. Joshua and countless more are deceptively using the names of SCOAN and Emmanuel TV. Experience has shown us that the majority of these people are out to deceive the general public in order to extort money from them.

Although the fraudulent Facebook pages are too numerous to mention, our attention has been especially drawn to the following account: ‘Tb Joshua Ministry Can Change The World’ (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Tb-Joshua-Ministry-Can-Change-The-World/272787806141938). We were shocked to see the account has well over 40,000 followers and the writer of the site is even receiving prayer requests from people in the name of T.B. Joshua. What appalling deceit! It is time to put an end to this.

Prophet T.B. Joshua says, “A pastor leads best when his people get behind him.” We need your support to stop these fraudsters deceiving the general public.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
1. Please spread this message to all your friends/ family/ colleagues etc., especially those who have interest in TB Joshua’s Ministry.
2. Please DO NOT like or comment on the fraudulent accounts claiming to be TB Joshua as this will only encourage them in their malicious activities. If you have already become a fan/ friend, please remove yourself from them.
3. Please report the fraudulent sites you discover to Facebook immediately. If enough people report them, the Facebook authorities will be forced to take action.
4. Please warn people who have become friends/ fans of these fraudulent pages and pass this message across to them as soon as possible.

Once again, beware of any imposters claiming to be Prophet T.B. Joshua or claiming to represent The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, demanding for money in the name of either of the above in the promise of providing Anointing Water or other materials from the ministry. The Anointing Water is not for sale and is not being posted out from The SCOAN HQ in Lagos. Healing, salvation and all of God’s blessings are free gifts of God. Jesus Christ paid for our perfect and complete healing when He died on the cross. Watch and pray, lest you fall into temptation (Matt 26:40).

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Sunday Service 19.07.12

The Sunday Service started off with the prayer line attended by a significant number of people who were set free from their bondage after which Prophet T.B. Joshua preached on “Acting On The Word – Part 2”.

Preaching the Word of God

In the sermon, the man of God said, “We have exact knowledge, perfect knowledge and complete knowledge. That knowledge is in the Word when illumined by the Spirit. Our spirit acts upon the Word”. He also said “The problem of believing is made simple when we know that it is acting on what God has spoken”. He also emphasized on the fact that if we have all gifts without love, it is a wasted energy (1 John 5:13).

He added that faith is not rooted in intellectualism. It is purely a spiritual issue, rather than an intellectual agreement. Faith comes when the Word prevails over the thinking processing. We may be familiar with original Greek or Hebrew or the history of the Word, but it is all wasted energy if we do not practice it.

He stated that Scriptural prayer releases the power of God and to fill your prayers with the Scripture. If the Word dominates your spirit, it will influence your conduct and behaviour. In our ministry (The SCOAN), the Word has been a living and growing force. The mighty One (Jesus Christ) that is in us is taken out of the Word. As we begin to do the Word, God begins to act in us and through us.


PASTOR POSSESSED BY THE IDOL HE DESTROYED

Apostle Ekune Joseph sharing his testimony of complete deliverance

The video recording of the experiences of Apostle (Dr) Ekune Joseph was the first to be played.  Before his deliverance last week, the evil spirit had spoken through him in the church, to the effect that it had destroyed his ministry after he had burnt the village idol and shrine which had been revealed to him in a dream as the cause of their limitation. The evil spirit further stated it’s dislike of the Bible, and was angered by the pastor’s passion for delivering people; it also caused people to protest in the church and fight within themselves when the Word of God was being preached. The evil spirit also explained that it was because the name, Jesus, was an enemy, which sent fire into their kingdom. The evil spirit also confessed to being behind his wife’s barrenness for 12 years. His church lost many members due to the attack from the infuriated idol. In the midst of his trouble, he had watched Emmanuel TV and decided to visit The SCOAN for deliverance.

In his testimony, Apostle Joseph explained that after destroying the idol in his village with a group of fellow pastors and prayer warriors, he had a strange attack in his dream whereby he saw squirrels chasing him away from the village. Following this experience, his zeal for prayer and reading the Bible suddenly began to diminish. He explained that any time he opened his Bible to read, dizziness would come upon him to such an extent that he would often sleep off without actually studying the Scriptures.

Upon his return to his church, strange incidents began occurring during his services. Firstly, anytime he mounted the pulpit to preach, some form of commotion or argument would break out within the members, distracting the people present from listening to the message. As a result of these distractions and contentions, many members left his ministry and the church he had worked so hard in to build up began to crumble.

The grateful minister of God explained that after praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV, he had a remarkable dream where he saw the Prophet calling on him to come to The SCOAN. Honouring the Divine invitation, he came and received his mighty deliverance. To God be the glory!

HOW DEMONS FROM JUPITER ENTERED A PASTOR AFTER HIS 40 DAY FAST
Another video was also shown of Pastor Kenny Udeh’s deliverance in The SCOAN the previous week. He was invaded and possessed by seven spirits stating they were from the jungle on the planet, Jupiter after fasting for 40 days and 40 nights on a mountain in Enugu State. He had wanted to assist an old woman and her daughter to lift some wood after which they disappeared and he became confused. He later travelled to Dubai where he ran into an ugly situation which put him into prison. After release from prison, he returned to Nigeria to continue preaching through his ministry, Paraclete Ministries.

After that, his wife was feeding him and his household was always under constant threat. The spirit spoke through him that over nine people in his family had been killed and that although the pastor was strong, he also was tempted to almost kill his wife with a bottle and knife.

Pastor Kenny came forward to share his experiences. He explained that, as a minister of God, he had read various books about how other men of God had gone into prolonged periods of fasting and prayer in their quest for more supernatural power. Yearning for the same power in his ministry, one day he decided to enter into a 40 day fast on a mountain. He was there alone and did not even inform his wife of his intentions before going to the mountain.

He explained that on the 39th day of the fast, with his body both weak and frail, he saw an old woman suddenly appear on the mountain attempting to carry firewood. Helping the old woman to carry the fire wood, he gave it to her and returned back to his place of prayer. To his greatest surprise, upon looking back to see where the woman was, she had totally disappeared. He had just encountered an evil spirit! After returning from the mountain, Pastor Kenny explained how strange beings attacked him in his house the following night. From that point onwards, his ministry began spiralling steadily downwards. Frustration and stagnation became the order of the day

It came to the point where one day, he picked up a knife intent on stabbing his wife to death and ending his ministry in disgrace. However, before carrying out the devilish act, his daughter discovered him grasping the knife and pleaded with him to release it. Realising what the spirit was pushing him to do, Pastor Kenny resolved to visit The SCOAN, knowing that his case required spiritual intervention.

After attending The SCOAN service on Sunday, Pastor Kenny had a remarkable encounter in his dream. He found himself in a strange reddish land where demonic beings began introducing themselves to him, stating that they were from the planet Jupiter and their mission was to destroy him. In the midst of the encounter, he saw Prophet T.B. Joshua suddenly appear in their midst in a ray of light and strike him on the chest, calling on him to come. Waking up from the dream, it was the following day on Monday that he received his deliverance through prayer from the Wise Man.

When probed, Pastor Kenny explained that during the prayer from the Wise Man, he could actually see Prophet T.B. Joshua praying on his knees behind the Wise Man. This explained why the demons within Pastor Kenny had said they knew T.B. Joshua’s secret was hidden in Matthew 6:6 – “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”

PROFESSOR HEALED OF GLAUCOMA THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

Professor healed of glaucoma

The second service, characteristically, was the wise men praying for the congregation in the church where deliverance and healing took place in the lives of thousands of people. The second service ended with mass prayer from the wise men.

Reverend Professor Ngochindo had experienced glaucoma for 10 years, and had ocular pressure which rose to 29. He explained that if it reached 30, he would have gone blind. He was to be operated upon in Port Harcourt, where he practices as a medical doctor. Having refused the option of operation, he visited The SCOAN. He went through the prayer line and was later given the Anointing Water; he believed a spiritual operation was done on him by the five Wise Men. His ocular pressure dropped from 29 to 22.2, back to regular levels. He advised the viewers that if doctors had faith, they could do many things without a knife in the operating theatre and that everyone should put God first.

On Sunday 10th June 2012, during a service at The SCOAN broadcast live on Emmanuel TV, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave a prophecy concerning the nation of America and an upcoming security incident involving someone carrying a gun into a gathering of people and shooting, leading to the deaths of many.

The prophecy was confirmed in the tragic incident of Friday 20th July 2012 where a man armed with a gun entered a crowded movie theatre in Colorado, USA and began shooting at random, resulting in the deaths of 12 people.

We at Emmanuel TV and The SCOAN pray that God would comfort and strengthen the families of the victims in this tragic incident and continue to shelter the nation of America under the shadow of His protection, in Jesus’ name.

This is an official statement from The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (The SCOAN).

Several rumours have recently been circulated around the internet concerning an alleged prophecy of Prophet T.B. Joshua about a stadium collapsing in Zambia.

We wish to state that Prophet T.B. Joshua NEVER gave such a prophecy and there is no truth whatsoever in these rumours.

Any prophetic message from Prophet T.B Joshua is shown on Emmanuel TV. If you did not hear it on Emmanuel TV, Prophet T.B. Joshua did not say it.

Let us watch and pray, lest we fall into temptation (Matthew 26:41).

Beware of the father of lies.

God bless you.

Jesus is Lord.

The early morning sermon was delivered by Wise Man Harry who spoke on people’s choices, meaninglessness of life, God’s power, place of assignment and problems of focusing on wealth instead of God. He said when God created you and I, He gave us the right to life, and within that right was the discretion to choose between right and wrong, God and satan etc. Without the discretion, he said, “Life is meaningless”. “You have to make the right choices if you have to make a difference in life”, he said, claiming that “he who wants to be great must first respect great men”. The theme of his sermon was “The Power Above You”. He made reference to 1st Kings 19:19-21 and verse 16, too.
Elijah, he said, “was a farmer at his place of assignment.” He noted that “your assignment is always to a place or to a people”. When you think about what Elisha did, you will begin to wonder how somebody could leave their assignment and begin to follow Elijah. He said if Elijah was not a man of vision…he would have remained a farmer throughout his life. “Where there is no vision, the people perish”, he said. He said our objectives must be clear for our lives to have meaning. “A large slice of life will pass you by if you focus on wealth”, he said.
A beautiful life does not just happen, it is built. To build a beautiful life, you must recognise the power above you or submit to the power above you” he assured. How do we experience the beautiful life, he asked. To experience that, you have to first experience the power above you (God) And unless you do that, there will be dissatisfaction.

The Truth Sustains God’s Prophets
Prophet T.B. Joshua emerged to preach by 10am, speaking on diverse subjects to the expectant congregation, He referred to the previous weeks predictions and prophecies especially the one which had generated much controversy – the prophecy on the death of the Malawian President.

Speaking generally he had said; “God has all men’s heart in His hand and turns them as he pleases. The day will declare who is in the right, and who is in the wrong. One lying spirit can make 400 lying prophets and make use of them to deceive us”. He has added that “If I say ‘God says’ and it does not come to pass, it means I have not spoken of God because God put His words in the mouths of true prophets and the words are genuine,” and that “The truth sustains God’s prophets”.
On the genuine prophets, he said “a prophet of God is all about time and preparation. God talks in parables, and he has, to prepare his messages properly, built on God’s parables through vision, “in order not to be called a prophet of doom”. According to him, “The Bible is full of parables; you must examine everything in the light of the Holy ghost; if not, it can be sheer literature”, adding that reading literature cannot give one true knowledge of the Gospel; “every sentence must be examined in the light of the Holy ghost. The Bible is an instrument, a tool, in the hands of Holy Ghost. If not, it cannot work. If it is a tool, it will heal, deliver and bless.

Delivered From Disgusting Act Of Eating Faces & Sperm & Drinking Urine

What appeared to be the greatest act of deliverance happened in the church when a man was called out before the congregation; he had been eating his own faeces and those of others, as well as his sperm and urine, all mixed together, for a period of sixteen years. He had enjoyed the odious delicacy on a regular, daily basis, as commanded by some evil spirit.
Mr. Mukaila Oyedeji Malomo used to be in Germany for sixteen years, married to a half German, half Hungarian, and was working in the midst of good , serious – minded people. Because of a problem, he was jailed in Germany, between 1993 and 1994. In prison, he suddenly woke up some night to behold a wicked demon who instructed him to start mixing his faeces, sperm and urine mixed together with his own hands and drink. It was at about 1:00am, and there were four other sleeping Nigerians there. After swallowing the filthy content, some weird power descended on him, and he saw himself as the most powerful man around, and ready for war. In the morning, he had engaged wardens in a brawl. The more he ate the unusual combination every day, the more he become physically powerful and “nobody can arrest me”, He stabbed many people in Germany streets, and became very dangerous to the community. Yet, he had houses in Germany, Hungary and Nigeria (he was not poor). He moved into public toilets in Germany and Nigeria to eat people’s faeces and urine.
He saw nothing wrong with eating such. Photographs with his wife and fellow workers were shown to the congregation, and the spirit warned him never to inform people what he was eating. He said he had a son with his very loving wife, who he has never seen; (due to his prison sentence) they could not see him when he was in jail. The Germans asked him to go for treatment as no orthodox medicine worked for him.
He was prayed for and delivered through the Holy spirit in The Synagogue Church, and the man confessed to “feel somehow light and fresh” and saw the consumption of faeces, urine and sperm as “disgusting, something useless; waste products from the body”.
He said further; “I feel like vomiting (he actually did). I believe I have been delivered. I thank God I am completely free. The smell is bad. I feel ashamed; I had been to many churches in Nigeria…The power of God has manifested.’’ He has added: I feel fine. I am okay. My reaction is that I hate it; it is a dirty thing; it’s rubbish. I enjoyed it in the past, but as from this moment, I have been delivered. It is not pleasant; it irritates my system. I can’t wait to see my wife’’.
To these, entire prophet Joshua glorified the name of the Lord, and that the wife will be rejoicing now because she will be watching. People in Germany will also rejoice’’. He called it “mother of all miracles’’ and what you have never seen in life, when you see it will influence your life’’.

TESTIMONIES
MR AND MRS ETIBET EKUOMADU—Delivered from Poverty and Economic setback through Anointing Water.
The couple had come to the service to glorify the name of the Lord for retrieving them from the pangs of poverty and economic setback. Both had stayed in Italy for 15 years and in Florida, USA for three (3) years, before returning in 2008. Abroad, they had recorded failures in all they did, except paying bills and rents. In Nigeria, they had rented a place in Oke-Afa, and had prayed fervently against frustration and disappointments.
In November 2011, they got the Anointing water which they ministered. Inspired on the second day of ministration, the couple had started a mini fish pond at the rented compound, and made a plywood and tarpaulin erection around the pond, and made the vat. By December 2011, Prophet Joshua had prophesied that farmers would enter the season of success. The Anointing water has worked wonders for the family because they first made between 800 and 1000 fishes after hatching; later the fish 30,000 in eight weeks. What should be realized in 10 months was realized in 8 weeks an attestation to unusual breakthrough in one male and one female which have produced 30,000 fish.
The couple advised people that, in every situation of life, they should trust that God will visit them in Jesus’ name.

AMAKA ABOH: Delivered from pelvic pain through Anointing water    
As at September 2011, this Anambra State-born Nigerian was suffering from severe pelvic pain. She was diagnosed in hospital as suffering from kidney stones, and upon admission, was treated unsuccessfully with drugs and antibiotics.
Though discharged, she was to be taking 480 cl. Of water every day. This never worked for her. To bend her body was a problem; she had to sit and bathe. When she got hold of the Anointing Water, she had to call her husband, who had to administer it, with faith. Immediately, she felt a cold sensation at the back, and her blood pressure which used to rise at night, became calm. She started shaking involuntarily when she finished using the water, the pain disappeared. She started doing what she couldn’t do. She went for the scan, and in the hospital, the doctors were shocked. She said her deliverance is permanent in the name of Jesus Christ.

Gloria (Namibian) – Delivered From Eating Anthill Soil and Chalk)
A video was shown of a woman – Gloria from Namibia, and 36 years old – who was eating anthill soil and chalk. She had been on it for 14 years, and as a teacher, she ate it everywhere. She couldn’t obtain functional medical attention from the hospital; she collected more of the anthill soil from the forest, which she kept in a plastic and ate, until it finished. She found it difficult to visit the toilet, and blood used to accompany her faeces.
She said her problem had started in 1997, but she had seen those eating cement and charcoal and chalk delivered at The SCOAN on the Emmanuel TV. She received her deliverance through the Wise Man. She advised people never to take to chalk or anthill soil eating, and they should always pray to God and have faith in Jesus Christ for their deliverance, in a similar dilemma.

Bob (From Rivers State Nigeria): Delivered From Spiritual Wife and Crocodile Spirit
Mr Bob, as shown in the video, had come to The SCOAN for deliverance. He had been permanently destroyed. Though he was supposed to be a star, he could not because this Queen of the sea had also destroyed his marital life; his children disregarded him, though he is a good orator and an engineer. His children had also stopped watching the Emmanuel TV. He was also turned into a chain smoker, but by placing his hands on Emmanuel TV screen when Prophet T.B. Joshua was doing mass prayer for the viewers, he was delivered. He had vomited.

In his testimony during the service, Mr Bob said he was possessed by the spirit of spiritual wife and crocodile because he had joined a secret cult in his secondary school days, and had charms for the protection against knives and bottles. He used to find himself at the Bermuda Triangle, where he experienced a lot of strange things. In 1985 or 1986, he was physically initiated by the spiritual wife – a white lady who was naked.
He received three powers – in his eyes, private part and mouth. With his eyes, he could
seduce beautiful girls, whether they liked him or not. He was always searching for girls
in the church because of the spirit of seduction in him. Through space communication
(in which he encountered photographs of the girls with whom he slept), he became
used to many ladies (he had an aura which attracted them). These ladies eventually did
not have settled homes, or had no husbands. They also began to lust after other men, even after marriage. He slept with many ladies who could not even leave him; and his own daughters also got infected with the spirit of lust (after his marriage).
His heart used to be very heavy. He was lucky to have encountered Emmanuel TV earlier, through which he was delivered from smoking recklessly. He had smoked for 40 years (since he was 9 years old; but abandoned the habit since November 6, 2011).

Delivered by Wise Man Christopher, he advised parents that they should know what their kids do, so that in the near future, they would know how to behave. He also advised his friends to stop drinking; that they need deliverance, and those in cults should surrender to God, through a touch from the Holy Spirit.

Mr & Mrs Mellitus Ovia (Enugu State): Delivered From Infertility and Staphylococcus Through Anointing Water
Mr Ovia had suffered from low sperm count and inferility as well as staphylococcus. He had gone to different hospitals and churches without getting solution for 12 years. His first wife ran away because of the problems. He had started watching Emmanuel TV in his brother’s house, and became encouraged by the kinds of miracles he saw, and he decided to go the The SCOAN. He married the second wife, and with her, they prayed with the Anointing Water, and the woman is now pregnant. The wife also testified in church.
Both advised people that, when faced by any difficulty, they should believe God to solve same, and provide for their needs, especially because The SCOAN “is a home of miracles”.

Mrs Benedicta Matthias (From Rivers State, Nigeria): Her Baby Was Delivered From Immature Death By Anointing Sticker)

In March 2012, after Prophet Joshua shared out the Anointing Sticker to the congregation, Mrs Matthias’ child was sleeping beside her father, while the mother was eating. The girls, about a year old, passed on. The mother had to rush to the door to remove the sticker to place on her, which refused to be easily retrieved. The back of the sticker was pressed on the child, and life returned to her. She had died for about one hour, and the mother has faith because according to her, “I know where I belong”, and she said that people should believe in God because “The God of T.B. Joshua never fails”.

Mrs Gladys (From Accra Ghana): Delivered From Ice cubes Consumption for 12 years
Mrs Gladys, a 48 year old Ghanaian had visited the church for deliverance from ice cubes consumption for 12 years, which was an affliction to her. She also had fibroid, pains in the stomach and ear, and was always bleeding. She had to eat ice cubes everywhere, every time, which she saw as biscuits. She was delivered by Wise Man Daniel.

Another woman, a Zimbabwean was delivered from ice cubes consumption too, because she had done so for 8 years, and the hospitals had diagnosed that she lacked iron in her system. She used to experience chest pain. She was delivered.

Prophet Joshua arrived the church to exposed a young man, who had been an armed robber and was one of the gang members who killed a woman, after stealing N3 million from the family. The charms – the brandishing young man was identified by the prophet, said his charms were to prevent gunshots from affecting him.

Check out this article that we found on nairobiwire.com. A Kenya News website. It gives you a special insight into the story of Prophet T.B Joshua, perhaps what you never knew before.

TB Joshua’s Michael Jackson, Mutharika Prophesy, And His Prophesied Life.

Who Is This Man TB Joshua..

“The most surprising part of TB Joshua is that his life had been prophesied by another great man of God…” 

When the Africa heard of Malawi’s president cardiac arrest , and his death a day later, one word came haunting, TB Joshua. Less than two months ago, the Nigerian prophet told his congregation that God had showed him the death of an old African president. Since he had already built a reputation by accurately prophesying the death of pop icon Michael Jackson, the world did not take those words lightly. Immediately, social networking sites were on fire as to who, TB Joshua was referring to. High on the list of possible candidates was, Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe, Kenya’s Mwai Kibaki, Malawi’s Bingu wa Mutharika and Senegal’s Abdoulaye Wade, who has since lost the election. This was going by the words of TB Joshua that the president is old.

This weekend, just one week before the death of Bingu wa Mutharika, TB Joshua repeated his calls that Africa prays for its leaders as the death of one of its president was very close. Social networks were reignited again.

Temitope Balogun Joshua was born in 1963 in Nigeria and is the leader and founder of the organization, The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), which runs its own TV station, Emmanuel TV. As with many successful church ministers, TB Joshua as been a target of controversies. Some pastors have even accused him of using other powers other than God’s.

June 2009 will be remembered as the year when Michael Jackson died.What many people don’t know is that his death had been prophesied by TB Jackson 5 months earlier. On a live broadcast on Emmanuel TV, the prophet said,

“I’m seeing a great star whom the world is shouting, “Hey, hey, hey!” In his own area, he’s famous – he’s known everywhere. He is great – too great… I see something will begin to happen to that star and that may likely end in him packing his load and going on the journey of no return…

Some have dismissed the prophesy as too general to be associated with Michael Jackson, but later events proved that TB Joshua actually had Michael Jackson in mind. On live TV, former President of the Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN), Tee Mac, told a congragation,

“The man of God (TB Joshua) called me to his office and said to me, ‘Please, tell your friend Marlon to bring Michael here to Nigeria. Michael needs healing; he needs deliverance.’ I told the man of God that Michael Jackson just went for a medical check up because he is going to have about 50 concerts soon. But the man of God said to me, ‘Send Michael here – he needs healing.’ ”

When the tragic news broke, “what immediately came to my mind was that the man of God told me something’s going to happen,”

That statement immediately solidified TB Joshua’s prophesying credentials. That was however not the only TB Joshua’s prophesy that has come to pass. He is said to have predicted several football match outcomes, including the final of AFCON, where Zambia’s Chipolopolo carried the day.

The most surprising part of TB Joshua is that his life had been prophesied by another great man of God, the late prophet Adewole. In 1995, Adewole was confronted by a group of three journalist who wanted his comments on this new young prophet. In his own words, Prophet Adewole said,

“I was attending to people in my office one day when three journalists entered; the three of them came from three different media houses. They asked, “Prophet Sir, we see and know you to be one of foremost Prophets of God in Africa today. Millions of people are looking forward to your comments because you are the only prophet who has never commented on the subject?” At this point, before they mentioned what they really wanted and the man in question, our Lord Jesus Christ appeared to me from the Altar in my office on a golden, very beautiful and mighty chair. He commanded me not to join fake, jealous and envious prophets to say blasphemy against a fellow messenger of God.

‘The Man in the Synagogue is mine. He is your spiritual colleague. He is not fake. His power is not mixed. I do as I please. You are all working for my glory on earth. Do never disown or desert him. Truly he is young in age, but my spirit in him is pure and great. His grace is special. Many will fall through him, while others will rise through him also. Advise him always like a son, friend and colleague and do not judge him at all because God is the only judge. I reveal this to you because you fear, adore and do my wish always. I love you’ – and He disappeared.

I then turned and faced the three men again. And I started telling them all God told me about the man, Temitope Joshua, in the Synagogue, Egbe, Lagos. They were marvelled and become embarrassed. Then one of them said, “Daddy, we believe you, but we want you to see him conjure with his hand. He is using mixed powers. Two other top prophets and the head of witches have promised to test and punish him.” I told them that all the witches and prophets on earth cannot even face an anointed man of God. I even warned them not to join the unbelievers that are fighting God through his prophets. After that they left”.

He later went on to tell his people,

“a young man from Nigeria would be highly anointed, such that all the nations of the world would embrace the mighty God through him.” He said a time would come that the Synagogue Church of All Nations will become a Jerusalem in Nigeria, such that the number of foreigners would outnumber the Nigerians attending the church.

As stated earlier on February 9th 2012, we want to assert that Prophet T.B. Joshua did not mention any name of a person or country, date or time-frame when he prophesied about an African Head of State.

For the last two months, rumours have been spread, speculations have arisen and judgements have been wrongly formed on the internet, the pages of newspapers and in the minds of people.

On 5th February 2012, TB Joshua simply stated that:
“We should pray for one African head of state, president, against sickness that will likely take life. It is a sickness for a long time – being kept in the body for a long time. God showed me the country and the place but I’m not here to say anything like that. I am still praying to God to deliver the president concerned.”

He never mentioned 2 months or 60 days or April 16th or any other date as fabricated by those spreading rumours, neither was any name mentioned.

Then on 1st April, TB Joshua reiterated the prophecy saying:
“Last time I said we should pray for a leader of a country and you people gave different meanings to what I said and I want to say, God will forgive you all. I never mentioned name or time. You can never stop me from saying what God has put in my heart. What I’m saying is very close now. Whether you like it or not, pray for your leaders. The person concerned, God showed me but I’m praying to see whether this can be changed. Pray for your leaders. A head of a nation, I’m seeing a sudden death as a result of sickness. Pray, this is Africa, not even West Africa. Lift up your voice and pray for a leader, that the Lord should redeem our leaders in this continent of Africa. In Jesus Christ’s name we pray. I will continue to bring this issue, when it is too close, the name, the country. Pray for your country, your continent, the whole world. Prayer.”
These prophecies were given live on Emmanuel TV for all to witness. Please do not add to or subtract from the prophetic message. The prophecy was given so that we would give ourselves to prayer. TB Joshua did not state that the event was unchangeable, hence his call to prayer.

Psalm 105:15 – “Do not touch My anointed ones,
And do My prophets no harm.”
