SOLDIER ON

 

The SCOAN Live Sunday Service of February 12, 2017 was a day in which the diseased received health, the oppressed received freedom and the dead were literally brought back to life – spirit, soul and body.

dadSpeaking on the importance of faith, Prophet T.B. Joshua delivered a thought-provoking message titled: HOW MUCH YOU NEED GOD. He said, “When we examine our daily life, we will find out how much faith we have. Faith is manifested in the small things in our daily life”. He made the message practical with these examples, “To you, you don’t need God to sit down or stand up. You claim you are a Christian – how many of you are sitting in the name of Jesus? Do you know you need God to dress up, make up, comb your hair, to even greet?”
Pointing the way out, Prophet T.B. Joshua continued, “Satan attacks you where you believe you don’t need God. Satan lashes at you in the areas you believe you don’t need God. You create avenues and opportunities for satan to enter. For you to be victorious in life, you must know how much you need God”.

In her message titled SOLDIER ONevangelist-shadeEvangelist Shade called on Christians to brace up for war if they really want to triumph over the tribulations of this world. “He who desires victory must be ready to embrace war,” she said, adding that “We are not to run from confrontation”. According to her, a good Christian must confront the world with confidence because, “Victory does not begin with fear, doubt or condemnation”.

She warned people of God not to allow their situations to affect their destinies, arguing that no matter what the world throws at them, they should soldier on with their eyes fixed on the victory that would crown their efforts: “Many have changed their destiny by listening to the voice of their situation. Don’t listen to the voice of your situation.” She summed up her deep message with the following philosophical maxim: “Life is not a playground or a bonding meeting; it is warfare.”

Proclaiming victory over their challenges, people from across the globe came forward to testify how God had won their battle:

THE DANGER OF SPEAKING IN STRANGE TONGUES

After tinkering with different medical options aimed at curing her issue of barrenness, Mrs Bimpeh decided to pursue the things of the spirit. That zeal to grow in spirit led her to visit a prayer centre where she believed she was “blessed” with the gift of speaking in tongues. The gift did not materialise physically until she was visited in the dream by a gentleman and a woman. It was in that august dream that she was taught how to speak in false tongues. Mrs Bimpeh continued to speak in those tongues, expecting the Heavens to put a new song in her mouth but unknown to her, she was already doing the devil’s bidding. The tongues which she had thought would dismantle the mountain of barrenness that had been the gap between her and the fruit of the womb, soon proved to be from the pit of hell.

mr-and-mrs-bimpeh-cornelius-enamThe more she spoke those strange tongues, the more mysterious her dreams became. She would find herself in the presence of a strange woman in her dreams, speaking demonic gibberish and sometimes seeing snakes even in the physical. Beyond the superficiality of those tongues, there were ominous signs that the devil was taking her for a ride. She noticed that after her fellow tongue-speakers touched her tummy, she would have a sudden miscarriage. When she herself spoke those strange tongues with unrivalled vigour during one pregnancy, she experienced an induced abortion. In total, she had six miscarriages. Eventually, Mrs Bimpeh began to nurse fears about the strange occurrences in her life. She wondered why and how a supposedly spirit-filled activity such as speaking in heavenly language could become her greatest undoing.

mr-and-mrs-bimpeh-cornelius-enamIn a state of utter confusion, a friend introduced her to Emmanuel TV. Watching with rapt attention how God was working through the anointed channel, Mrs Bimpeh realised that what she actually needed was a firebrand deliverance. That moment of spiritual self-realisation became the prologue of her journey to salvation. Visiting The SCOAN, she made herself available for the Holy Spirit to locate her. During the course of the service, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for Mrs Bimpeh, gave her the Morning Water and declared that her past was over, adding that she would return to the church with a testimony.

Six miscarriages and six years of tears were wiped out of her past after receiving deliverance. Testifying, Mrs Bimpeh told congregants how she conceived and went on to deliver a baby girl without any complications, after nine months. Mr and Mrs Bimpeh thanked God for enabling them to cross through the Red Sea of barrenness. The Ghanaian couple advised people to hold on to faith and desist from speaking in strange tongues.

MY MYSTERIOUS LIFE

Mr Mthunzi was only nine-years-old when the devil invaded his dream and contaminated his innocent spirit. That night, while other lads were enjoying their sleep, young Mthunzi was playing victim in a dream-drama to a giant man who had come to abuse him. After he awoke from that stream of sleep, he shared the horrible experience with his father but was told to disregard the nightmare as it was just a dream. But from that very moment, the South African developed certain negative behavioural traits. He starting smoking, stealing and growing violent. Before he completed secondary school, he was arrested on two occasions by the police for his misdemeanours.

His university education was a disastrous adventure as he dropped out after three years. From the university, he proceeded to the prison after he was arrested for a crime. Coming out of the prison, he reunited with his wayward gang and continued living on the spur of the moment – clubbing, drinking and smoking. While chilling out at a club one night, he was approached by a man who wanted to sleep with him. The scenario felt like the opportunity of a lifetime and he went with the man without looking back. After that night’s saga, he became a willing tool in the hands of the spirit of man. Whenever he was drunk, he would end up with different men. All efforts to get out of that evil entanglement were in many ways harder than a camel passing through the eye of a needle. He had been bottled by satan; it would take God to free him.

His relationships with women were abysmal. Anytime he wanted to woo a woman, he mr-mthunzi-butheteziended up with a prostitute or drug addict. Burdened by the reckless and immoral engagements he had suffused his life into, the flight of freedom became imminent. He narrated his escapades to his brother who prescribed a solution to him. Having watched Emmanuel TV, his brother knew that his case was a minor thing that would be handled perfectly at The SCOAN.

Visiting the Arena of Liberty penultimate Sunday, Mr Mthunzi received a word of prophecy from Prophet T.B. Joshua, “You find yourself in a mysterious life,” pointing to Mr Mthunzi. “I am sorry; you would like to have passion for women but your passion is for men. A very handsome man. Ladies would want you but suddenly, you found yourself having affection for men… It is the spirit of man that is tormenting you,” he added. Confirming the prophecy to be true, Mr Mthunzi was delivered as the man of God spoke freedom into his life through the prophecy in the mighty name of Jesus.

Testifying before The SCOAN congregation last Sunday, Mr Mthunzi exuded great joy as he told congregants that he was no longer stealing, drinking, smoking or sleeping with men. Instead, the evil hand working in his life had been chopped off by the power of the Holy Spirit and he is free. Advising people who have a similar problem, he urged them to hold on to Jesus as He is the only solution.

MY MARRIAGE TO A STRANGE SPIRIT BEING

When she was seven-years-old, she noticed some fetish items in her mother’s room. Those items included idols with different shapes and represented different water spirits and animals. Her mother was definitely worshipping those idols and would later pass them on to her. Rosemary was asked to make a covenant that she would inherit those idols whenever her mother died. To perfect the covenant, little Rosemary was clad in white attire, half-naked and asked to kneel beside her mother. A cow was slaughtered and its blood poured into a calabash. Rosemary was asked to dip her middle finger into the blood and place it on her tongue.

After the consummation of that covenant, Rosemary grew up to encounter a barrage of problems. The spirits of anger and perpetual unhappiness became a constant part of her. By age 25, the evil spirit that had entered her during that covenant started operating on a full scale. Instead of young and promising suitors, all the men who came to her were married. Moreover, her relationship with them would suddenly be marred by her uncontrollable fits of anger and unexplained resentment. On their part, the men would have problems with their wives as their homes would always be boiling points with different troubles.

Rosemary had a child by a married man whom she later parted ways with. Her dream life became a complete mess. She would always see a giant man sleeping with her. On several occasions, she had dreamt of herself pregnant and delivering babies in a river. She would also dream of herself swimming and flying. The more she had those dreams, the worse her physical condition became. No single man dared to approach her for marriage; only married men did. Worried, she confided in her mother about the strange things that were happening to her. Her mother took her to a fetish priest who told them that she had a spirit husband in the river. According to the priest, she would have to physically get married to the spirit husband lest her life became a total mess.

Scared of the consequences of refusing to marry her spirit husband, Rosemary convinced her mother on the urgent need to follow the directive of the fetish priest. In 2006, she was taken to the seashore, stripped half-naked and had the marriage rites carried out. As the fetish priest performed the rites, Rosemary was asked to speak her problems into the ears of a white dove which she had in her grip. After speaking into the ears of the dove, she released it. As the dove flew away, she beheld a smoke-filled light afar in the horizon. According to the fetish priest, that light was her spirit husband. She was advised to abstain from physical sexual relations starting from Fridays to Sundays because those days were reserved for her spirit husband to sleep with her. She was also instructed to wear white clothes on such days and was handed beads and a wedding ring. After that seaside ritual, she developed a love for tattoos and went ahead to imprint the images of a dove, a snake and a lion on her body.

Brought down by depression and body pain, her yearning for freedom grew in intensity. When she could no longer bear the ravaging oddities that had taken over her life, in spite of all the rituals she had undergone, Rosemary knew that the only place to be was The SCOAN. Visiting the church, Rosemary received her deliverance as Prophet T.B. Joshua ministered prophecy and healing during The SCOAN Sunday Mass Prayer. As soon as the man of God touched her, the evil spirit in her felt the brunt of the fire of the Holy Spirit and started confessing all the destructive roles it had played in her entire life. The mermaid spirit as well as her spirit husband were cast out as she was separated from all generational covenants she had entered into. “When the man of God touched my head, I felt as if a hammer hit me to the ground,” she recounted.rosemary-edem-blithia

Testifying last Sunday in company of her mother, daughter and other family relations, Rosemary thanked God for setting her free from the gates of hell. Rosemary’s mother also revealed how her grandmother was impregnated by a man who turned out to be a spirit from the sea. According to her, it took some rituals on the advice of a fetish priest for that pregnancy to be delivered. She corroborated the fact that Rosemary’s problems emanated from a generational covenant between their ancestry and the river spirit. Rosemary also expressed her new-found joy in upholding the things of God, adding that she was more than ever poised to develop her relationship with our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. It was a triumph of the Kingdom of God over the kingdom of darkness as congregants visibly exhibited their gratitude to God for redeeming a lost sheep through the Arena of Liberty.

FROM TEACHER´S PET TO A LIFE OF TORMENT

She was showered with scintillating gifts by her teacher but never had an inkling of the sinister motive behind those kind and unsolicited gestures. As a student, her self-esteem had soured on account of the fact that she was one in a million to be so loved by her teacher. But unknown to her, an evil process was gradually gathering momentum. Rita was sixteen-years-old at that time and did not really understand that the world was deeper than it appeared. One day, her teacher visited her at home and requested that she spent the weekend with her. Like a sheep being led to the slaughter, the unassuming young woman accepted her teacher’s request.

miss-okenna-rita-ukamaka-and-fianceThat night, in her teacher’s house, Rita’s innocence was raped after she had downed an unnamed alcoholic beverage that induced her to sleep. When she woke up, she discovered that something untoward had happened to her. She noticed that she was naked and was compelled by her teenage emotions to ask her teacher some questions. Her teacher’s response was like a thunderbolt. “I have done what I would have done a long time ago, after showering all those gifts on you,” said her teacher. The confused student, not satisfied with her teacher’s response, probed further. “Please, ma, what have you done?” she asked. “I have made love to you,” retorted her teacher.

Since that incident, Rita began to develop affection for women. That urge to mingle with women became unstoppable. It thwarted all attempts by male suitors to come close to her. If at all she did have male friends, they were there as a decoy, ensuring that her problem remained hidden. By the time she became fully aware of the spiritual transformation that had taken place in her life, she embarked on many quests for a solution. All the places she went to in search of solution failed abysmally to help her.

Realising that a solution was far from her, she had resorted to self-help but it just wouldn’t work. Her dream life became a direct reflection of the things she did with fellow women physically. She just could not curtail the urge. Whenever she came across women, a spirit in her would always push her to go and woo them. While all these things transpired, Rita did not put her parents in the know. For a girl who had slept with several women, including the married and unmarried, deliverance would be the ultimate solution. Rita would later meet a man whom she told her problem to. The young man eventually became her fiancé. He took serious interest in her case and advised her to come to The SCOAN for deliverance.

Prior to her coming, she had prayed and had received a revelation in which Prophet T.B. Joshua was delivering her. When she finally attended the Sunday service two weeks ago, the Holy Spirit located her during the Mass Prayer. Prophet T.B. Joshua, taking authority in the mighty name of Jesus, commanded the evil spirit out of her life. During her testimony, Rita told congregants how the whole atmosphere turned into fire while she was being delivered. After her deliverance, she has since been free from the spirit of woman.

For a woman who once drank alcohol and received numerous phone calls from fellow women daily, change has come finally, according to her fiancé. “She no longer does those things as the Spirit of God has since taken over her life,” he added.

GOD RAISED ME FROM DEATH TO PRAISE HIM FOREVER

1On a fateful evening, there was no sign that evil was lurking around the corner. The family was together, relaxing when suddenly their togetherness was put asunder by uninvited invaders who left in their trail, sorrow, tears and blood. They devoured the family’s dinner and asked for cash and ATM cards. The mother of the house surrendered all she had in her possession but it was not enough to placate the hardened criminals. In the ensuing gruesome drama, the evil men increased the volume of the television set in order to stop the screaming of their victims from filtering outside the house as Praise’s mother was raped and slaughtered along with his younger sister.

3As Praise rushed into the sitting room in a panicky move, he ran into the villains who stabbed him in his stomach and chest and slit his neck, leaving him in a pool of his own blood. Thinking he was already on the other side, the armed robbers left with the family’s possessions.

Confined to the throes of death, Praise’s consciousness was not impaired as he saw a benevolent being dressed in white come to carry him to a neighbour’s doorstep. Banging on the neighbour’s door, the being then disappeared. When the neighbour came out of the house to behold Praise in a pool of blood, he went berserk with a blend of pity and anguish. He hurriedly took the dying boy to the hospital and contacted his extended family. At the hospital, he was assumed dead until his aunt came along with the Morning Water and Good Morning Sticker, believing that God would prove Himself.

For several months, Praise underwent a series of operations. His trachea and vocal cavity had been seriously damaged and needed to be fixed urgently. He could not talk but depended solely on gesticulations and writing on paper to communicate his thoughts. According to his aunty, he had actually passed on three times in the course of the seven operations he had undergone but was miraculously brought back to life with prayers and the ministration of the Morning Water. When it became apparent that he needed better medical attention, he was referred to the United States for specialist attention.

_mg_7023In his usual spirit of extending love to the needy, Prophet T.B. Joshua was moved by the plight of the hapless boy. The man of God immediately provided feeding and accommodation for Praise and his aunt while consultations commenced with medical experts concerning his referral to a better hospital abroad. It would be noticed that the boy’s health had improved while he was living in The SCOAN. The challenge was that he could not talk, owing to the complicated damage done to his vocal cavity. Securing visas and international passports for Praise and his aunt to the tune of two thousand US dollars, the man of God also provided the initial medical deposit of five thousand US dollars as well as another two thousand US dollars for their welfare abroad.

Embarking on their inaugural flight, Praise and his aunt travelled to Johannesburg, South Africa where they were received by the Emmanuel TV team which accompanied them to Cape Town, where the specialist hospital is located. Making funds available for their transportation and accommodation within South Africa, Prophet T.B. Joshua also paid for all the operations and medical procedures to the tune of forty thousand US dollars. For the surgeons who carried out the operations on Praise, they had discovered that his case was very severe with damaged vocal cords, making him unable to speak. As Prophet T.B. Joshua continued to pray for him and as his aunt continued to minister the Morning Water on him, a miracle happened – the vocal cords were revived and began functioning properly. Praise started breathing and speaking and was declared perfectly fit. He no longer needed the oxygen pipe on which he had depended for months.

dsc_0129After the entire medical process, Praise went on to visit tourist and recreational facilities in Cape Town before his journey home to Nigeria. He returned to Nigeria a complete person. Together with his aunt, they came to share their testimony at The SCOAN. They were joined by other immediate and extended family members and acquaintances. The atmosphere was glorious as congregants joined the testifiers in singing and dancing. The choir was in their element as they kept everyone on their dancing feet. “Unchangeable, reliable, God, only You can do what no man can do,” they sang as tears of joy rolled down faces.

Speaking audibly well and thanking Prophet T.B. Joshua and the Emmanuel TV Partners for helping him find his voice again, Praise told congregants that he had received two Certificates of Bravery from the surgeons that operated on him. “I was treated like a king and enjoyed myself in South Africa. I ate all their burgers and spaghetti,” he said jokingly. Discarding the two pipes which he had used as breathing aids, he called on the rich in society to emulate Prophet T.B. Joshua by helping the sick and the poor. Cumulatively, Prophet T.B. Joshua and the Emmanuel TV Partners spent a whopping fifty thousand US dollars on Praise’s medical trip and welfare but nothing is too dear to give when you realise that what we do or fail to do to our fellow man, that we do or fail to do unto God.

master-praise-and-auntSpeaking on the boy’s testimony and healing, Prophet T.B. Joshua extolled the synergy between the church and the hospital in ensuring that Praise is back to his normal self: “You can see the mighty result you achieve if God’s servant and medical doctors are able to work together. God is God of nature. If God’s servant works with medical doctors, there is no limit to what they can achieve because God’s servant will be able to say whether a person will come out successfully during the operation, the treatment. Before I said to the young one (Praise), “Go”, I had seen the to and fro; I had seen that he would come out of the operation”.

Concluding, he urged children of God to exercise their faith so that their belief in God could be felt and seen by the world: “You must exercise your faith to show you believe. Faith must be practised. Faith is practical; there is no abstract faith. It is by faith you can tell people, ‘This is what God has sent me to do’. The belief in our heart can only be released by faith. If you can’t show that faith, then you don’t know the God you believe and If you don’t know the God you believe, it means it is not Jesus.”

 

PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA.jpg

The children of God had a practical experience, listening to the faith-building testimonies of people who had received their deliverance, healing, breakthrough and blessings through the various anointed mediums of the ministry. The SCOAN Sunday Service of February 5, 2017 was a confirmation of the correlation between the concept of faith and the unleashing of God’s power. Prophet T.B. Joshua, while exhorting Christians through a message themed the Word of Faith, reminded them about the systematic way through which faith can be inspired or attained. “Faith comes by hearing. That is why we need to hear about healing anointing, deliverance anointing and blessing anointing,” he said, adding that Jesus always responds to those who put a demand on Him.

Speaking further, the man of God urged believers never to allow the crisis and attacks that may come their way to sway them from doing the will of God. According to him, many have allowed their marriages to crumble because they chose to bother about the problem rather than seek the face of God and hear what He had to say about their situation, adding that every blessing must go through God’s processing. He also observed that only God can make a true relationship work: “If God brings you to a relationship, the same God will equip you.”

Urging them to cherish God’s processing more than the end result, the man of God advised Christians to see the things they do when trying to achieve something as more important as the achievement in itself: “When you want to achieve something, what you do to achieve it is more important that the achievement.”

In his concluding remarks, he had a simple and straightforward counsel to the children of God, all over the world: “If you don’t forget yourself, you cannot follow Jesus. To forget yourself is to forget your challenges, predicament, situation or worry… Following Jesus makes you consistent in your blessing.”

EVANGELIST FANNY.jpg

Meanwhile, in an earlier message titled YOUR SPIRITUAL CHECKUP by Evangelist Fanny, Christians were admonished to live up to their spiritual expectation by attuning themselves to the things of God rather than waste time chasing after the ephemeral pleasures and transitory gratifications of the flesh. She observed that, “Your Christian life is measured not by your body language, your type of clothes or your makeup or no makeup but by the movement of your heart in the midst of your challenges. That is why the Bible says the first place you are to prosper, you are to beautify, to purify, to sanctify is your spirit man, your spiritual life, the one that holds your strength, your health, wealth, even your outward beauty, in fact, all. That is why the real you must be redefined in order to be sensitive to the Spirit of God.”

Continuing, she revealed the role challenges play in the life of a true and dedicated Christian. She said, “Challenges reveal the true condition, position of your heart. Just as a physical examination is the process by which a doctor investigates the body of a patient for signs of disease, a spiritual examination is the process by which God, through challenges, investigates the heart of a Christian for signs of weakness and disease.” She further stressed that, “A spiritual check-up will determine where are the loopholes that give access to satan in your life and determine how strong is your heart in the face of the turbulences and attacks.

She however left the following counsel to people of God: “Your situation is not your enemy but your friend; it is a check to your spiritual life. Therefore, no matter your situation or condition, continue to meditate on God’s Word – your spirit will gradually act on it because meditation removes the burden on our spirit. I leave you here in the midst of challenges, knowing that I will meet you again stronger that when you went into it.”

TESTIMONIES

NO HANDICAP CAN ESCAPE THE ANOINTING AT THE SCOAN

She had been relegated to the gloomy side of life by a terrible knee problem that made it impossible for her to function properly. Mrs Margaret Fabiyi, a Nigerian tourism promoter who had traversed most of the African continent, was forced to give up her career only to be left on the bed after undergoing a surgery to fix her troubled knee caps. The surgery came and went but the pain and discomfort refused to abate. Since 2014, she had been bedridden, unable to take care of herself. In her sad and handicapped situation, she resorted to soliciting for help in order to be able to carry out certain personal and domestic obligations. She virtually begged to live.

MRS MARGARET FABIYI (6).jpg

Moving with crutches, Mrs Fabiyi was confined to her home, unable to even attend church programmes. She remained in that piteous state until she discovered through Emmanuel TV, that a revival was coming up between the 9th and 11th of December, 2016 at The SCOAN. She attended the revival service on the 9th and had an encounter with the Holy Spirit as Prophet T.B. Joshua led the Mass Prayer. As the man of God specifically commanded every pain in the body of congregants to go, he also ordered those unable to walk to stand and walk. It was at that instant that Mrs Fabiyi keyed into the command of God through His prophet and decided to put away her walking aid. With faith, she walked unaided for the first time in two years.

MRS MARGARET FABIYI (2).jpgmrs-margaret-fabiyi-4

According to her, as soon as she obeyed his command to her to stand up and walk, she could not understand the way she found herself walking without aid again. She described the experience as awesome, adding that a strange force inspired her to walk as she felt more energetic than ever. “Since then, I have not had any cause to use the crutches. I walk perfectly on my own,” she told congregants. Demonstrating her new-found wellness and agility during last Sunday’s testimony time, in company of her son and other relations, Mrs Fabiyi thanked God for using the man of God to restore her health. Her son, who also shared her testimony, advised people to have faith in God, adding that he had witnessed the glory of God in the life of his mother.

A FAMILY UNHOOKED FROM DEMONIC MANIPULATION

She had seen her father watch pornography at the tender age of nine and had subconsciously allowed the demon behind that evil activity to pitch its tent in her heart. Since that day, Stephanie became a slave to sin. She would grow up to find herself lusting after men, unable to concentrate even on her studies. As a result of that demonic distraction, she had to repeat a class and was also once suspended for absconding from school to go and see her boyfriend.  After her suspension from school, Stephanie fell out with her parents on several occasions and each time such happened, she would run away from the house to put up with her boyfriend who was in his early twenties. But even when she returned home, the demon was still haunting her every thought and action. She could not just understand what was wrong with her but she knew that something was surely amiss with her life.

Aside from her lustfulness and addiction to pornography, Stephanie was also a troublesome lass, always bullying her younger siblings and disobeying her parents. The cycle of immorality continued until her parents sat down with her to try and understand the mysteries around their daughter. They needed to know what was really wrong with her in order to make the right choices.

Penultimate Sunday, Stephanie was at The SCOAN with her parents and received words of prophecy from the man of God. According to the man of God, she had a flirting spirit which operated like a dog and caused her to run after men. The man of God added that she would jump the fence in order to go and meet men, irrespective of their status. Corroborating their daughter’s problem, her parents confirmed the prophecy to be true. As her mother spoke, the man of God prophesied that Stephanie’s problems were an offshoot from her mother whom he said had no affection for her husband. Commanding the demon in Stephanie to come out of her, the man of God delivered her in the mighty name of Jesus. Both parents also received their deliverance, making the whole thing a family affair.

During their testimony, Stephanie and her parents thanked God for bringing about a new lease of life into their family. According to Stephanie, all her immoral ways are now things of the past even as she is now a very respectful and obedient child. Her mother also thanked God for the family’s deliverance. The Thai citizen told congregants how she and her husband had engaged in a couple of illicit businesses in the past, adding that she was pregnant with Stephanie then. According to her, she only loved shopping and spending money, irrespective of the source. The tattoo-adorning mother also recounted how Lucifer had approached her in the dream, trying to sleep with her.

All the illicit businesses they engaged in thrived but whenever they wanted to do something legitimate, their resources would dwindle and fritter away. It was their desire to do something legitimate that brought them to Nigeria. As soon as they arrived in Nigeria, all their legitimate investments crumbled. The strange and recurring happenings in their family led them to The SCOAN. Aside from her lack of affection for her husband, Stephanie’s mother rejected any form of intimacy from her husband as the prophecy would reveal. According to her when the man of God laid hands on her, she felt something like a big hammer hit her head. Since that day, her love for her husband has returned. There have been very great changes in the family. Peace has come to stay while the spirits of anger and undue agitation have left the family. Stephanie advised young people to desist from pornography as it could destroy their lives.

REDEEMED FROM THE GATES OF HELL

He was born into an idle-worshipping home and had boasted of a fetish ancestry. At a time, he was handpicked and initiated into fetish engagements by his paternal grandmother who also used him as an errand boy for her unholy business. The Ghanaian continued serving his grandmother, taking part in many evil covenants until he became ill and started rotting away with maggots coming out of his smelly body. The old woman who was famed for her expertise in fetish matters, had suggested that he be buried alive but his father kicked against that evil suggestion. Instead of allow his own son to be buried alive, his father angrily took him to a river and dumped him there.

MR WILFRED OBEDIA CALM ENDURE & FAMILY (4).jpg

Young Winfred was barely three years-old when he was dumped in a river for three days. After three days, his father revisited the river in search of him and luckily found him still alive. At that point, a ‘miracle’ happened. All the maggots and sores that had taken over his body disappeared. After that healing at the river, Mr Winfred Obedia returned to his father’s house. There, he started to wield his evil powers, exhibiting the traits of wild animals and suddenly found himself on the streets of Ghana, mingling with drug addicts, traffickers and prostitutes. He was eventually sold to a drug-dealing woman who resided in Texas, USA.

Mr Obedia was shipped to America to live with the woman who was actually an international prostitute that also trafficked drugs. She would engage in her sexual adventures in his presence and would also have him sleep with her because, he had no mind of his own, having been sold to her in Ghana. But the evil association would not endure for long as the woman was hit by a deadly disease. When she was beginning to feel the brunt of the deadly disease, she had called him and told him about her impending death, urging him to pray for her so she may survive the battle against HIV/AIDS. Before she died, she narrated to him how she bought him at a very tender age in Ghana. She also reminded him of the killing of her two sons by an armed gang in Texas. The woman eventually died and left the young man at the crossroads.

MR WILFRED OBEDIA CALM ENDURE & FAMILY (2).jpg

When he returned to Ghana, he made efforts through a radio station to locate his biological parents. After two weeks of announcements, the radio station called to inform him that a man had been found who said he had lost a son at age four. After a couple of formalities, father and son were reunited. The father knelt down to ask his son for forgiveness, stating that he was away on national duty as a Ghanaian soldier when the unfortunate incident happened. Obedia was taken in and was introduced to other members of his family. As he gradually adapted into the family, he made clear his intention not to marry much to the displeasure of his mother. Along the line, he encountered a lady who turned him into a house boy and controlled him. Whenever they had sex, she would use a white cloth to wipe his semen. The woman exploited him at will because she wielded some spiritual powers that he could not comprehend.

Having made a lot of money through his business, Obedia had wanted to build more houses for his parents but the first attempt was thwarted by his elder brother who squandered the money. He would not give up. He insisted on starting all over again all by himself. He went ahead to erect another building which later collapsed. Undeterred, he built another after three months. But to his greatest shock, his mother rejected the house and instead requested for money. A woman neighbour who advised him to relocate to the house his mother rejected would later appear to him alongside her daughter in a dream-like but real encounter, saying she had come to protect him from an evil community.

How they gained access into his house, when all the doors and windows were locked, baffled him. As he tried to query her, she sprinkled water on him and left. That scenario was so scary that he had to drive to his parent’s house that night without dressing up properly. Though his parents allayed his fears, the young man returned to his house to encounter another bizarre development. As he stepped down from his car, heading to his apartment, he felt like a bullet was fired into the centre of his head. Later, in spite of his father’s warning to the woman to leave his son, she and her daughter kept appearing to him and having sex with him.

It was apparent that he was being spiritually polluted by the woman and her daughter. He became sick and was taken to many fetish places by his father in search of solution. Obedia would suddenly degenerate health-wise, looking frail and sickly. He developed a serious craving for alcohol, squandering a lot of money on whiskey. All efforts to help him proved abortive until a business project took him to China. In China, he was initiated into Buddhism and partook of the blood-drinking ritual. When he returned from China to Ghana, the strange woman called him and requested for money. To be on a safe side, he went to the bank, withdraw money and gave to her.

Unsatisfied with the direction his life was going, he decided to visit India, thinking it was one of the world’s most spiritual enclaves. There, he was initiated into the Hare Krishna cult. As part of his initiation, he was given the ashes of a cremated human being to drink inside an evil forest. He also received a lot of tattoos in different parts of his body. He was told that his problems were over by the Hare Krishna adherents. Returning to Ghana, he resorted to running a herbal shop. But the so-called business was marred by heavy drinking. One day while trying to tune to a new channel with a glass of whisky in his hand, he accidentally stumbled on Emmanuel TV. Just a flash of the anointed channel brought him to the floor, sending him into compulsory sleep for hours.

When he woke up, certain changes had taken place spiritually. His urge for alcohol was no more. Around that time, he met his wife. Together, they relocated to the house he had abandoned while on the fast lane of spiritual contamination. They cleaned up the house and discovered a lot of charms which they burnt eventually. They also installed DSTV and watched Emmanuel TV, praying along with the man of God. Obedia’s appetite returned to him after he had prayed with the man of God via Emmanuel TV. He ate voraciously one day much to the surprise of his wife who had known him as someone who rarely ate. As they continued praying with the man of God, they discovered many evil entities in their house. His wife played a major role in influencing his decision to visit The SCOAN.

When he visited The SCOAN penultimate week, he received deliverance from the man of God. According to him, when the man of God touched him, he felt like thunder stuck him. Since that episode, his life has changed radically. He even dreamt of killing a mighty python after the deliverance – a sure sign that he has conquered the demon behind his predicament. Mr Obedia, who testified in company of his parents, wife and little son, thanked God for saving his life from the gates of hell.

Evangelist Evelyn

Evelyn Joshua

Opening The SCOAN Live Sunday Service, Evangelist Evelyn Joshua brought an encouraging message titled, GOD IS WHO HE IS.
Urging Christians to connect with God through faith rather than cling to the physical circumstances that would always instigate doubt in their minds, she added that faith in God, even in times of trials, brings about blessings: “Faith lifts us above the realm of the senses, our reasoning abilities, understanding and makes the possibilities of God available to us.  The Bible says, blessed are those who believe without seeing; blessed are those who shout, “Hallelujah” before a miracle happens. Blessed are those who bless God in their trials and difficulties, for they shall be blessed by God through their challenges”.

She added that faith will only be activated when we make the Word of God the standard for our lives. As Christians, as the Word grows in our hearts, it connects us to our Father in Heaven and makes us operate with power: “God’s Word is a living, growing force that develops in the heart of man. As it grows, faith grows. As a child of God, if you continue to operate with this divine faith, your word will be as powerful as if God has spoken it Himself”.

TESTIMONIES

50/50 CHANCE OF LIVING

Mr Jideofor Eze

Mr Jideofor Eze

For Mr Jideofor Eze, living with a kidney disease and urinary tract infection was a serious challenge. The scenario painted the ugly picture of weak kidneys incapable of carrying out their excretory functions optimally. He could not urinate the normal way and doctors had to insert a catheter into his urinary system to enable the free-flow of urine. The native of Enugu, Nigeria could not enjoy any reprieve as the problem always re-emerged whenever the catheter was removed.

He could hardly sleep and was not be able to access any form of help around when the problem hit in the odd hours of the night. After a series of tests, he was told he had a kidney stone which could only be treated by surgery and all the doctors he consulted gave the same verdict. Unfortunately, he only stood a 50-50 chance of living after the surgery. Mr Eze wondered how he would be able to muster the financial muscle to foot the gigantic bills that would accrue from such a medical exercise and whether he would live or not.

As he waited for his operation date to be set, he started watching Emmanuel TV. Seeing the wonderful testimonies of people who once had even worse health conditions, he developed the urge to visit the Arena of Liberty. He was lucky to hear that in a few days, there would be a healing revival at The SCOAN in December, 2016.  A day to the commencement of the service, the ailment reared its ugly head, preventing him from passing out urine that night. He visited the hospital and had the catheter re-inserted, pleading that he should be allowed to travel to Lagos the next day – a request that was granted by his doctor even though he was advised to be careful because of the catheter which could injure him on transit. The troubled man arrived at his Lagos lodge to discover that his catheter was passing urine mixed with blood. The discovery drew tears from his eyes as he rushed to a nearby hospital to have the catheter reinserted. Thinking it was the end of the road, he raised a deep-hearted and anguish-stricken prayer to the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua to save his life.

 

Once in The SCOAN Prayer Line, he witnessed the greatest drama of his entire existence. Prophet T.B. Joshua was ministering healing and deliverance, in Jesus’ name. As the shadow of the man of God passed him, he suddenly felt a continuum of cold sensation all over him. In moments, he was healed! Testifying, he told congregants that what he experienced was more than just a man of God but God Himself in action. His remark lends credence to Prophet T.B. Joshua’s statement that he is not the one performing the miracles but God working through him.

After his healing, Mr Eze returned to a doctor and requested for the removal of the catheter. Upon arriving home, he felt a sharp pain and ran to the toilet. Ministering the Morning Water in prayer, he was surprised as he urinated out the kidney stone! Thanking God for saving his life from the hands of a deadly ailment, he advised people not to hide their problems, urging them to find every means to come to God to receive their healing.

FROM ELECTRICIAN TO COMMISSIONER

Mr Nnamdi Ezechi

Mr Nnamdi Ezechi

Mr Nnamdi Ezechi was employed as an electrical technician with a multinational company in Delta, Nigeria. He was carrying out his duties diligently and was trying to manage well the small success God had given him. As a regular viewer of Emmanuel TV, he came to The SCOAN and received the Morning Water, which he continued to minister in prayer. His life entered a dramatic dimension when one day a member of the House of Reps, representing his local government, asked him to nominate persons for consideration into a transition committee from his local government area. After compiling and sending the name of nominees, Mr Ezechi was shocked when he began to receive congratulatory messages from friends and associates. Confused, he met with his boss who confirmed that he was the one chosen for the position. He had never aspired to such a political position in his life and was a shock to him to find himself a member of such a committee. He continued ministering the Morning Water in prayer and one day, after the Nigerian general elections, he was contacted again by his boss to suggest the names of three persons whom he wished to be nominated as honourable commissioners in the state of Delta. Mr Ezechi was confused. He wondered why his boss would ask him to do such a serious thing as he saw himself as a simple employee who was neither wealthy nor famous. In short, he felt the task was beyond him in a local government where there were very influential people. Anyhow, he sent in some names and moved on with his life. While driving to work some months later, he received a call from his boss, instructing him to come to Asaba, the Delta capital. He quickly ministered the Morning Water as he prayed for God’s divine direction and guidance and made his way to the capital. When he arrived, Mr Ezechi’s boss congratulated him for becoming appointed as a DESOPADEC (Delta State Oil Producing Area Development Commission) Commissioner. Indeed, there is nothing God cannot do for those who are faithful to Him. Thanking God, the former electrical technician enjoined congregants and people all over the world to leave every case to God to handle.

A PROMOTION SEALED AND DELIVERED FROM THE THRONE OF GRACE

She joined her country’s foreign mission in 2011 and had always wanted to excel. One day, she came back from work and found her children watching Emmanuel TV at home. The great miracles, teachings and testimonies she saw on the channel inspired her so much that she started praying to God to take her to The SCOAN.

Mrs Isata Bangura

Mrs Isata Bangura

God, in His mighty ways, answered her prayer. In 2014, Mrs Isata Bangura was posted to Nigeria as a Third Secretary in the Sierra Leonean liaison office in Lagos, Nigeria. When the news came to her, she was surprised because at her grade level, she was not qualified for such a posting. However, she was happy because she had been praying for that opportunity. As soon as she settled down in Nigeria, she was promoted within the same year to the position of Assistant Secretary, Grade Seven.

After that shocking promotion, Mrs Bangura started worshiping at The SCOAN with great devotion. She continued to pray for bigger things to come. By 2016, memos were circulated around all their missions inviting qualified persons to return to Sierra Leone to sit for the Senior Assistant Secretary examination. Conferring with a colleague in their Addis Ababa mission, she received materials bordering on the promotion examination, including the civil service code which she specifically requested.

Receiving the materials, Mrs Bangura started studying them. As she did, she ministered the Morning Water and deployed all other anointed materials, including the Faith Bracelet in her prayers and meditation. After writing the examination, she returned to Nigeria. When the results were released in November, 2016, she passed and qualified to occupy the position of Senior Assistant Secretary. Though she had passed the examination, she refused to be too excited because unless she received a letter to that effect, it would still remain unconfirmed. The much-awaited confirmation letter was eventually sent to her in January, 2017.

During her testimony, Mrs Bangura told congregants that she was highly overwhelmed with the promotion because of the way it came. According to her, it is unusual for a person who just joined the service in 2011 to be promoted within a very short while. She thanked the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua for doing the impossible in her life. She advised people to believe in God and allow Him to set His time-table for them, adding that they should continue praying with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV.

THE QUEEN TRIED TO DROWN ME

MRS CHRISTIANA NGOZI NJOKU

MRS CHRISTIANA NGOZI NJOKU

When she was a very little child, she had accompanied a friend to a stream in her hometown. There, she was being taught how to swim only to find herself deep inside the stream. An unseen force had grabbed her legs and was making it difficult for her to either swim to safety or loose herself from the entanglement. All she could do was to scream, attracting the attention of a lady who came to rescue her. After that saga, young Ngozi did not disclose her experience to her parents. She carried on with her life.

But things were no longer at ease with her spiritual life as she started having strange dreams in which she would be surrounded by snakes. Sometimes, she would dream of a very beautiful woman draped in a gown with the dazzle of a queen, coming to crown her. The dream visits of the strange woman continued even when she got to secondary school level. She became attracted to other senior girls who came to her for friendship, disguising as school mothers. Even though she later got pregnant for a boy at age 14, her attraction to women like her lingered like a stubborn stump, refusing to be uprooted.

Ngozi had sent her daughter to stay with her mother in Cameroon in order to pick the pieces of her life together and perhaps, start afresh but her intentions would not promise anything good to the family. Her daughter became a replica of the mother, living a wayward life and eventually becoming pregnant at age 14 as well. It was a pill too bitter to swallow. In Ngozi’s reckoning, history seemed to be repeating itself rather unfortunately. She felt that her past was haunting her in some sort of déjà vu. Worried, she continued to spend her money on herbalists who deceived her into believing they could help her.

Ngozi was sought after by men but after getting engaged, they would suddenly disappear. It was apparent that there was a force thwarting all her hopes of settling down with a husband. Instead, she was made to have more affection for women. As she continued to find a way out of the problems in her life, Ngozi came across Emmanuel TV and witnessed the awe-inspiring testimonies on the channel. Immediately, she told herself some bitter truths and made up her mind to visit the Arena of Liberty. As the set date approached, her daughter with whom she had planned to come to Lagos, disappeared. It took some prayers for the lass to be reunited with her mother.

 

When they finally arrived at The SCOAN, they attended the Sunday Service. And during the Mass Prayer led by Prophet T.B. Joshua, Ngozi was fished out by the Spirit of the living God. As the prayers increased in tempo, the evil spirit tormenting her life manifested and was cast out of her life. Ngozi was floored by the power of God. Her daughter who confessed to have been raped at age 13, also received her deliverance. Mother and daughter thanked God for their deliverance. Ngozi’s mother also thanked the man of God for being a worthy instrument God used to deliver her daughter and granddaughter. She appreciated God for the fact that her child and grandchild have changed for the better and Ngozi advised people to have faith in God even when they are facing challenges.

WHAT YOUR CHILDREN DO IN THE DARK

Mr James Lubilo

Mr James Lubilo

He had always wanted to be a man of God and had always expressed that aspiration to his mother. As a young man, his mother encouraged his aspirations but the devil and his agents would not fold their hands and allow that lofty dream to come to fruition. Suddenly, a boy who once harboured thoughts of working in the vineyard of God became a problematic child. James started stealing, a trait that did not go down well with his parents who, in an attempt to curtail his misdemeanours, sent him to a boarding school. Unknown to them, they were creating an enabling environment for him to become worse. In spite of his parents’ opulence, he could not stop the despicable act of stealing. It was like a deep-rooted malady that required a superior force for it to be expunged from his life.

When he entered secondary school, he met some friends who influenced him into drinking alcohol and smoking weed. Those habits made him lose his head as he would always misbehave. When his system became immune to the highness in alcohol and weed, he graduated into hard drugs. He took codeine, cocaine and heroin. As his class of drugs changed, he also changed the calibre of friends he moved with. Eventually, he hooked up with unrepentant drug addicts whose minds had been hardened by arbitrary drug use. When he realised that he was the only one without a tattoo among his bad friends, he wasted no time in having one on his chest.

Together with his gang, James engaged in supermarket robberies which proceeds were squandered on women, alcohol and drugs. But one fundamental reality that begged for explanation was the fact that his parents were well to do and yet, he would not stop stealing. Somehow, his mother got wind of his strange behaviours and came to the conclusion that he was taking something injurious to his health. To stop him, she had discontinued the act of giving him money. James would later devise new strategies of getting money. He resorted to stealing and selling his mother’s personal items, thinking that it was the only way to pay her back in her own coin. The young Zambian was so much addicted to alcohol and drugs that he was once locked up for harassing security personnel who resisted his insistence on purloining alcohol by force from a supermarket in the early hours of the morning.

mr-james-lubilo-2Somehow, James’ mother was able to convince him to come with her to The SCOAN for a Monday service. The man of God laid hands on him and delivered him from the evil spirit that had made a mess of his life. The deliverance was not without some drama as the evil spirit manifested, confessing some of the destructive things it had done to the young man. According to him, even before the man of God came close to him, he had already started feeling the presence of fire all over him. That was the last scenario he could recollect until he found himself rising from the ground, declaring that he was free in Jesus’ name. James’ mother and younger sister were also delivered from evil spirits that had also oppressed them. According to his younger sister, she had also abused hard drugs and had even initiated many of her friends into the ungodly habit. During their testimony, James, his mother and sister thanked God for delivering the entire family from the clutches of the devil. They reckoned that all things have become new ever since they received their deliverance. James’ mother advised parents to show more care to their children because they have the propensity to hide certain injurious behaviours.

 

I HAD EYES BUT I COULD NOT SEE

“I am a snake!” shrieked the evil spirit manifesting from Mrs Angel Nwokoye, a woman who could no longer control her behaviour towards her husband and quarrelled constantly. Feeling neglected as a wife, she had been hearing rumours that her husband had been having extramarital affairs and her anger was at its peak.

Mr & Mrs Chika Ndubuisi

Mr & Mrs Chika Ndubuisi

After 18 years of marriage and four children, their marriage was on the brink of divorce as Mr Chika Ndubuisi could no longer stand to be with her due to their irreconcilable differences.

Ready to throw in the towel and give up on his marriage to Mrs Angel, he had decided to leave their home in South Africa and set out on a holiday in his home country of Nigeria. His journey had a secret mission, however, as he had resolved to look for a new wife.  After some time, Mr Chika called home to check in on his children only to find out that his wife had also left on a holiday. Surprisingly, her own secret mission was also in Nigeria but for a different purpose. Unwilling to allow the devil to destroy her marriage, Mrs Angel had gone to The SCOAN to seek God’s divine intervention. That was the moment of her divine encounter.

After her deliverance, Prophet T.B. Joshua invited her husband to hear God’s opinion about their marriage. Honoured to receive the call, Mr Ndubuisi came to The SCOAN the following Sunday and aired his negative feelings about his wife and asked for God’s direction. The man of God revealed that the marriage was indeed a marriage from God and that Mr Ndubuisi was also in need of deliverance.

Mr & Mrs Chika Ndubuisi

Mr & Mrs Chika Ndubuisi

Both husband and wife received their deliverance, one week after each other and returned to the church embracing. They could not help but share the joy of the Lord as they told of their wonderful reconciliation. Mr Chika confessed that prior to his deliverance, he saw himself as an innocent victim in his marriage while he saw his wife as old and wretched. The following morning, waking up after his deliverance, he suddenly recalled all the ways he had made mistakes in his relationship in the past. Turning to his wife to apologize, he saw a more beautiful woman than he remembered. “I had eyes then but I could not see. Now, I can see clearly! Wow, is this a mistake? Is this woman that I found in Nigeria the same one I left in South Africa?” He then made a promise before the whole congregation to love his wife more and more, as Christ would have it. The Gospel of God’s grace challenges and changes everything!

C’était une rencontre indescriptible avec l’Esprit du Dieu Vivant. Le Service du Dimanche de la SCOAN du 22 janvier 2017 a amené la Congrégation et les téléspectateurs du monde entier face-à-face avec la démonstration physique du pouvoir illimité de Dieu. La Chorale a fourni la plate-forme musicale pour louer le Seigneur. La Prière de Masse était massive dans tous les sens du mot. Les âmes troublées, les destinés piégées, et les opprimés spirituels ont reçu leur liberté dans le puissant nom de Jésus. Pour ceux dont les jougs ont été soulevés par le Maître bienveillant de l’Univers, était une occasion de témoigner de la bonté de Dieu dans leur vie. Leurs témoignages, signe de gratitude au Ciel, restent également des sources d’inspiration pour ceux qui croient au Seigneur.prophet-t-b-joshua
Exhortant les Chrétiens du monde entier, le Prophète T.B. Joshua les emmena faire une excursion dans les choses de l’Esprit. Selon l’homme de Dieu, la voix du Saint-Esprit apporte les changements souhaités dans nos vies. Il a observé que toute personne qui rencontre le Saint Esprit, ne restera pas identique : “Quand le Saint-Esprit parle, que vous le vouliez ou non, les changements prennent place”. L’homme de Dieu a reconnu la place de la chair dans la vie d’un chrétien, mais a ajouté que, par la Grâce de Dieu, nous sommes autorisés à surmonter nos erreurs et les défis causés par la chair : « Tant qu’il y a de la chair, les erreurs viendront et vous apprendrez et avancerez. Donc, chaque fois que cette erreur vient – il s’agit d’un test. La promotion ne peut pas venir sans les épreuves et tests. Dieu nous a donné la capacité d’apprendre de nos défis. Si vous ne voulez pas de défis, vous ne voulez pas apprendre, et si vous ne voulez pas apprendre, vous ne voulez pas aller de l’avant. »
Concluant, Le Prophète T.B. Joshua a rappelé aux Chrétiens que servir Dieu n’est pas par la force ou par la parole élégante, mais par sincérité. Il les a également exhortés de chercher premièrement la prospérité spirituelle avant toute autre chose : « Vous ne pouvez pas continuer à servir Dieu avec une force physique, un discours élégant – vous devez servir Dieu de tout votre cœur. Notre vie spirituelle d’abord. S’il y a une première place, où nous devons grandir ou prospérer, c’est dans notre vie spirituelle. »
evangelist-yinkaPlus tôt, l’évangéliste Yinka a donné à la Congrégation sujet à réflexion, avec son message intitulé, JÉSUS DETIENT NOTRE AVENIR. Elle les a exhortés à ne pas se décourager quand les événements autour d’eux semblent sombres face aux témoignages des autres personnes, ajoutant que Dieu a son avenir dans ses mains : « Parfois, dans la vie, nous nous demandons ce qui se passe autour de nous ; si nous croyons que Jésus est notre Seigneur et Sauveur, un nouveau corps, une âme et un esprit nous attendent un jour ».
Continuant, elle exhortait les chrétiens à ne pas se retourner contre la Grâce de Dieu, ajoutant que lorsque les yeux de notre foi seront ouverts, nous verrons la valeur de notre épreuve que Dieu utilise souvent pour nous préparer à de nouveaux niveaux dans la vie. Elle a demandé aux Chrétiens de soumettre leurs vies à Christ, afin de jouir de la connexion sans fin par la Grâce qui demeure en Lui : « Lorsque vous faites de Jésus-Christ le président-directeur général, le patron, le directeur de tout ce que vous faites, vous devenez connecté à Celui qui vous a créé ». Elle souligna bien le fait que « c’est un honneur pour Dieu que de le croire, même si tout sens le contredit », et ajouta que si notre décision de servir Dieu est soutenue par la foi, la confiance et l’engagement, nous allons certainement tout surmonter.
TEMOIGNAGES

PLUS JAMAIS LA PEUR DE MOURIR DANS MON SOMMEIL
Il était sur le point de passer vers le grand au-delà, mais Dieu avait d’autres projets pour lui. Le pasteur Maurice Alamba, se souvenant de ces horribles moments, a dit à la Congrégation comment sa vie était à ravagée par le trio destructeur de l’apnée du sommeil sévère, l’hypertension artérielle sévère, et des migraines graves. Pour ce Congolais résidant au Royaume-Uni, le septième jour de juin 2016 restera un moment inoubliable dans sa vie, car ce jour a marqué un nouveau départ pour lui. En ce jour fatidique, il avait reçu le touché onctionné de l’homme de Dieu qui l’a libéré de tous les maux dans sa vie, qui le forçaient à utiliser des machines pour vivre.pastor-maurice-alamba
Avant sa rencontre avec Dieu dans l’Arène de la Liberté, il avait vécu une vie que l’on ne pourrait envier. Il passait toute sa journée à dormir, et la nuit, il luttait pour dormir à l’aide d’une machine. C’était une expérience désespérante pour lui, dont le sommeil dépendait de l’aide d’une machine. Il était absolument contre nature et inacceptable qu’un être humain aurait à lutter pour dormir. Au fond de son cœur, il savait qu’il avait besoin de Dieu pour que le pire soit évité. Et ainsi, sa décision de visiter le SCOAN était la plus grande décision qu’il ait prise.
Selon lui, sa passion pour la SCOAN émanait de la démonstration merveilleuse de la puissance de Dieu qu’il avait regardé sur Emmanuel TV. Et donc, venant à l’Arène de la Liberté, il avait une foi absolue que ses défis vieux de 13 ans s’inclineraient devant la puissance supérieure de Dieu. Décrivant sa guérison, il a dit que dès que l’homme de Dieu a posé les mains sur lui à la Ligne de Prière, trois choses successives se sont produites rapidement. Tout d’abord, il a senti un choc électrique partout dans son corps après quoi, quelque chose sortit de lui. Comme il essayait de comprendre ce qui se passait, il sentit une sensation fraîche autour de lui et se retrouva par terre. Selon lui, il se sentait très léger quand il se leva.
Après sa guérison, M. Alamba a bien dormi, sans encombre. Il révéla à tous que, pour la première fois depuis tant d’années, il pouvait dormir naturellement sans l’aide d’une machine. Sa respiration et son bien-être général ont depuis été restauré pour une vie optimale par le Saint-Esprit. Depuis le 7 juin 2016, son histoire est celle de l’action de grâces et de l’engagement total envers les voies de Dieu. Démontrant sa capacité à bien respirer devant la Congrégation, il conseille à tous de garder l’espoir en étant obéissant à Dieu, ajoutant qu’Il est un Dieu fidèle.

UN BEBE GARCON PROPHETISE AVANT LA NAISSANCE
M. Michael Ugwu était fatigué des défis méchants que la vie lui avait infligés. Ses entreprises s’étaient émiettées suite à sa décision de construire une maison dans sa ville natale. La maison elle-même a également souffert de la stagnation car la construction s’est arrêtée à la toiture. En outre, le couple a souffert de stérilité pendant six ans. Dans leur lutte contre la stérilité, un procès impliquant un terrain qu’il avait acheté a également fait surface. En un mot, M. Ugwu avait beaucoup de problème à résoudre. A la recherche d’une solution, il a visité la SCOAN à plusieurs reprises, mais sa véritable rencontre avec la Puissance de Dieu est venue lors d’un Service du Dimanche en 2014, tandis que le Prophète T.B. Joshua prophétisait à la Congrégation.
Ce jour-là, l’homme de Dieu s’était approché de lui pour lui poser des questions sur la maison qu’il bâtissait ainsi que sur l’affaire judiciaire. Confirmant que la prophétie est vraie, l’homme de Dieu lui a également dit qu’il aurait un petit garçon. À ce moment-là, sa femme n’était même pas enceinte et était en lutte avec des fibromes multiples. Il reçut l’Eau du Matin avec laquelle il s’administrait, et priait avec sa femme. Après un certain temps, sa femme est tombée enceinte et c’était le début de la porte de la bénédiction que Dieu a ouvert à lui et à sa famille.
mr-micheal-ugwu-and-familyAprès neuf mois, Mme Ugwu a délivré un bébé, comme le Prophète T.B. Joshua avait prophétisé. Bien que, en raison des multiples fibromes sa femme avait, les médecins avaient voulu qu’elle subisse une intervention chirurgicale pour l’élimination des croissances anormales, mais le couple a choisi d’exercer leur foi en administrant le l’Eau du Matin et en demandant à Dieu de sécuriser l’accouchement. Dieu, dans Ses Miséricordes infinies, a écouté la voix de leur supplication et a rendu l’accouchement doux et sûr – un exploit qui a étonné tout le monde, y compris les médecins dont les règles médicales ont été rompues par l’ordre surnaturel du Ciel.
Après la naissance de leur fils, la vie de M. Ugwu a été témoin des bénédictions interminables de Dieu. Sa vie financière s’est améliorée et tout tourna pour le meilleur. Il est allé acheter une voiture pour sa femme et son fils pour faciliter leur mouvement d’un endroit à l’autre sans avoir à marcher sous le soleil brûlant ou sous la pluie. Comme un arbre fruitier dans sa saison florissante, sa vie a été dépassée par des percées. Il put compléter au goût, l’édifice inachevé que l’homme de Dieu avait signalé dans sa prophétie.
Corroborant la prophétie, sa femme déclara à la Congrégation comment elle a tenu fermement dans sa foi concernant la prophétie donnée à son mari par l’homme de Dieu. Elle avait une confiance absolue dans la Parole de Dieu dans la mesure où elle continuait à acheter des vêtements pour bébé, allant ainsi contre les conseils des gens. Elle a également révélé comment les fibromes multiples ont été éjectés après qu’elle s’administra l’Eau du Matin le jour de son accouchement. En remerciant Dieu d’avoir rétabli la joie et le sourire dans leur vie, ils ont conseillé à tous d’être fidèles à Dieu en toutes choses et de croire en ceux que Dieu envoie.

NON PLUS D’INCAPACITÉ, DE DÉPRESSION ET DE PENSÉES SUICIDAIRES

Arrivée en fauteuil roulant, Mlle Nicole Wezolek et sa mère Mme Marefe Wezolek sont venues à la SCOAN pour chercher la rédemption d’une sclérose en plaques sévère et incurable qui avait été une épine dans la chair de leur famille. Ils ont lutté contre les problèmes de dépression et de pensées suicidaires. Selon la mère allemande, lorsqu’elle était enceinte de sa fille il y a de nombreuses années, elle souffrait de dépression, mais elle pouvait surmonter l’orage de sa propre cause par la prière. Et donc, ce n’était pas vraiment une grande surprise quand elle a découvert que sa fille adulte avait commencé à montrer ces traits hostiles.card Placée dans la catégorie B comme 80% handicapée et dépendante, Nicole se plaignait d’engourdissement de ses mains à différentes parties de son corps. Elle portait aussi des vêtements noirs, visitait des cimetières et s’isolait des autres membres de la famille.

Pour le fait que Nicole ait tenté de se suicider à deux reprises, la question nécessiterait une solution spirituelle plutôt que les nombreuses doses de médicaments prescrits auxquelles elle avait été soumise. Et c’est bien la raison pour laquelle ils ont visité la SCOAN pour chercher la face de Dieu. Comme tous les autres membres de la congrégation, elles étaient assises dans l’auditorium pendant un service du dimanche quand la parole de prophétie de l’homme de Dieu les frappa comme un boulon. Mettant sa main sur la tête de Nicole, l’homme de Dieu dit: «Il y a un esprit suicidaire dans la famille. Tout le monde pense à la façon de se suicider. Dépression. Elle possède cet esprit.miss-nicole-wezolek-and-mother C’est la deuxième fois qu’elle échappa au suicide “. Mme Marefe Wezolek a confirmé la prophétie pour être vraie et après, a reçu la délivrance avec sa fille, Nicole, de l’homme de Dieu, au nom puissant de Jésus. Après leur délivrance, la mère et la fille ont joyeusement partagé leur témoignage au service de dimanche de la SCOAN la semaine suivante. Nicole a remercié Dieu d’avoir utilisé le Prophète T.B. Joshua pour la sauver de l’emprise de la dépression et des pensées suicidaires. Elle a dit aux congregants et aux téléspectateurs du monde entier qu’elle était libre et se sentant très heureuse car tous les mauvais wheel-chairsentiments qu’elle hébergeait autrefois avaient disparu. Elle a également dit qu’elle a retrouvé le toucher et l’usage de ses membres immédiatement après sa délivrance, confirmant que l’engourdissement avait disparu. Manifestant sa capacité à courir d’avant en arrière, elle déclara qu’elle n’avait plus besoin du fauteuil roulant. Le Pouvoir dans le nom de Jésus-Christ a rétabli le statut de Nicole de reconnue handicapée à valides! Pour leur retour en Allemagne, le Prophète T.B. Joshua a donné à la famille 2 000 $ pour les aider à recommencer leur vie avec la nouvelle liberté trouvée de Nicole!

LA PROPHÉTIE RESTAURE LE MARIAGE AU BORD DE L’EFFONDREMENT
Il s’était engagé dans une relation extra-conjugale avec une autre femme en dehors de son foyer conjugal. M. Joseph Nwodo jouissait de l’affaire illicite, ne sachant pas que cela aurait des conséquences désastreuses. Tout d’un coup, sa fortune commerciale a commencé à s’effondrer dans la mesure où il avait du mal à répondre aux besoins de sa famille. Chaque fois qu’il était sur le point de recevoir une percée, il rêvait d’une femme et les choses se décomposaient. Son destin a été laissé suspendu précairement sur le précipice d’un avenir incertain jusqu’à ce qu’il ait visité la SCOAN où l’Esprit de Dieu a exposé ses problèmes par le Prophète T.B. Joshua. C’était pendant un service du dimanche pendant que l’homme de Dieu prophétisait à la congrégation. « Il y avait une femme que vous avez rencontrée. Ce n’était pas de votre propre chef, mais vous êtes tombé amoureux de la femme ; cela vous affecte », a déclaré le Prophète T.B. Joshua alors qu’il appelait M. Nwodo pour lui imposer les mains. Secoué abondamment sous l’influence effrénée du Saint-Esprit, M. Nwodo se retrouva sur le sol. L’Esprit de Dieu élimina le mauvais esprit responsable de son infidélité. Après sa délivrance, la vie devint significative et encourageante.

Son entreprise a explosé comme jamais auparavant. Il retrouva ses sens et se rendit compte qu’il devait formaliser son mariage en compensant toutes les exigences traditionnelles exigées par la famille de sa femme. Sa responsabilité financière envers sa famille s’est considérablement améliorée dans la mesure où il a même acheté une voiture pour eux. Alors que sa relation avec son épouse est devenue très solide, il a cessé de convoiter d’autres femmes. Racontant comment il a visité la SCOAN rempli de déception et de frustration, M. Nwodo a dit aux fidèles qu’il était choqué quand l’homme de Dieu a retracé l’origine de ses problèmes et le délivra par la suite. Témoignant en compagnie de sa femme et ses enfants, il a remercié Dieu pour sa délivrance, ajoutant que les choses ont vraiment changé pour le mieux dans sa vie, son mariage et son antreprise. De son côté, Mme Nwodo a rejoint son mari en remerciant Dieu pour sa délivrance, ajoutant qu’il a fallu la sagesse pour qu’elle puisse faire face à toutes les expériences décourageantes qu’elle a rencontrés dans son mariage. En ce qui la concerne, leurs problèmes sont résolus. M. Nwodo a avisé les personnes du monde entier à s’abstenir de tout ce qui ne plait pas à Dieu.

ESPRIT DE CULTE CHASSÉ
Initié à l’alcool et à la cigarette en Décembre 2004, Christian, n’a jamais su qu’une initiation plus grande et plus dangereuse l’attendait. Les amis qui le cajolait dans ces mauvaises habitudes ont également pensé qu’il serait agréable de « le mélanger » dans un groupe de culte, la confrérie Eiye. Après avoir stupéfié le jeune homme avec beaucoup d’alcool, il a été réduit en bouillie comme l’un des nombreux processus méchants de son initiation souterraine. On lui donna un charme à avaler et on lui fit jurer de garder le secret.christian-attah-and-family
Il a par la suite reçu un fusil avec lequel son groupe culte a mené des opérations. Ils ont intimidé d’autres étudiants, en particulier les femmes dont ils ont volé leurs objets de valeur à volonté. Le produit de leurs opérations de vol était généralement remis à leur chef, qu’ils appelaient Senior Man. Avec le temps, il a découvert de nouvelles fantaisies, y compris des tatouages qu’il avait sur tout son corps à des fins différentes. Plus il s’associait avec les membres de son culte, plus ses problèmes s’intensifiaient. L’esprit derrière les tatouages sur son corps l’a toujours conduit à commettre des actes malveillants tels que le vol à mains armées.
Le jeune nigérian de l’État de Kogi battait sa femme sauvageusement chaque fois qu’elle osait remettre en question ses activités néfastes. Il y eut un jour où il l’a frappée alors qu’elle était enceinte et l’a presque étranglée juste parce qu’elle se préoccupait de son mode de vie. A cause de son insoumission, il avait des querelles avec son père qui menaçait de le renier. Sa relation avec ce dernier était déjà irrémédiablement aigre sans l’intervention de sa mère. Celle-ci a largement contribué à sa délivrance à la SCOAN. Elle l’avait encouragé à venir avec elle à l’Arène de la liberté.
Christian a cédé à la pression de sa mère et a visité la SCOAN, il y a deux semaines. C’est au cours de la prière de masse de dimanche que l’Esprit de Dieu pris l’a attrapé. Comme l’homme de Dieu avait ordonné à tous les obstacles et les limitations sur la vie des fidèles de se lever, la puissance de Dieu est tombée sur lui et une bataille spirituelle s’ensuivit immédiatement. Les démons qui avaient été à l’origine de sa situation se sont manifestés, il était incontestablement violent et devait être maintenu car les démons ne supportaient pas le feu de l’Esprit Saint. Avec toute sa résistance, le jeune homme se retrouvait toujours sur le plancher, dominé par la puissance de Dieu.christian-attah-and-family
Témoignant en compagnie de son épouse, de ses enfants et de ses parents, Christian remercia Dieu pour la nouvelle vie qu’il a trouvée après sa délivrance. Selon lui, il aime maintenant sa femme et abhorre toutes ces mauvaises habitudes qu’il avait engagées dans le passé. Il conseilla aux jeunes de renoncer aux choses du monde. Un jeune homme qui menaçait de tuer son père et son frère cadet a maintenant trouvé la paix en Jésus-Christ par sa délivrance à la SCOAN.
Ses parents ont également remercié Dieu pour sa délivrance. Ils racontèrent comment il a presque détruit toute la famille en corrompant ses plus jeunes frères. De peur d’être tué par le groupe de culte de son fils, son père avait également déménagé au Ghana et avait juré de ne jamais revenir à moins que le jeune homme n’ait été délivré. Et fidèle à ses prières, son fils a reçu la délivrance. Selon lui, il avait vu dans un rêve son fils délivré par le Prophète T.B. Joshua.
Selon la mère de Christian, elle a conçu son fils dans des circonstances impies. Comme une panacée à son problème récurrent d’estomac, elle avait reçu des concoctions de fines herbes du père de son mari. Finalement, le défunt grand-père de son fils lui apparut dans un rêve et lui donna le cadeau d’un petit garçon. Après un moment, elle a conçu Christian et lui a donné naissance après neuf mois. Elle a dit qu’elle avait remarqué ses comportements étranges très tôt mais ne pouvait pas faire beaucoup car il continuait à mentir jusqu’à ce qu’il devienne une menace sociale. Cependant, ses parents ont exhorté les parents à prier pour les défis auxquels ils sont confrontés.

LES PLANS DES ESPRITS DE SERPENTS DISPERSÉS PAR LA PRIÈRE
Elle avait subi de sérieuses attaques par un esprit de serpent qui l’avait toujours poussée à quitter son mariage et inconnue d’elle, la plupart des expériences négatives qu’elle avait dans son mariage étaient causées par le mauvais esprit. Mme Angela Nwokoye a souffert des embarras incalculables dans son mariage. Après son premier enfant, son mari a engendré deux autres enfants hors mariage. Ils se disputaient sans fin sur son habitude de boire, transformant la maison en une arène de crise. Pour les mozambicains vivant en Afrique du Sud, tous ses efforts pour obtenir de son époux de revenir à ses bons sens avortèrent.mrs-angel-olga
Selon Mme Nwokoye, sa famille élargie l’a abandonnée et l’a laissée à son destin malheureux. Avec quatre enfants de son époux, il l’avait délaissée et avait emménagé avec une autre femme et ne rentrait que de temps en temps pour changer ses vêtements. Tous ses plans pour affronter la maîtresse de son mari étaient inutiles puisque la dame a insisté qu’elle ne l’abandonnerait pas, arguant qu’il l’a attirée dans la relation. Selon cette dernière, à moins qu’il ne décide de sortir de la relation, elle ne le lâchera jamais. Avec ces tristes réalités qui la regardaient en face, Mme Nwokoye ne connaissait pas la paix, alors même que ses enfants étaient dispersés à cause de l’instabilité de son mariage. Pendant deux ans, son mari a vécu avec sa maîtresse et l’a laissée dans ses démêlées.mrs-angel-olga
Quand elle a finalement réalisé que ses problèmes n’étaient pas ordinaires, elle a utilisé l’argent de son mari pour se rendre au Nigéria pour chercher la face de Dieu à la SCOAN. Lorsqu’elle y est arrivée, Mme Nwokoye a été délivrée lors d’un service de prière du lundi après que des évangélistes eurent appliquée l’Eau du Matin sur elle. Au moment où l’homme de Dieu est arrivé sur les lieux, elle était déjà étourdie spirituellement comme le démon derrière son problème conjugal s’était manifesté, avouant toutes les choses horribles qu’il avait fait à son mariage.
En posant sa main sur sa tête, l’homme de Dieu apporta la dernière goutte qui a brisé le dos du chameau. Il a scellé sa délivrance dans le nom puissant de Jésus et l’a déclarée totalement libre. Un jour après sa délivrance, l’esprit de serpent lui est apparu alors qu’elle dormait, se lamentant de la raison pour laquelle elle s’est faite délivrée. Comme elle essayait de se réveiller pour savoir qui lui parlait, le serpent disparut et ne revint jamais. À partir de ce moment, elle savait qu’elle avait été libérée de l’assaut de l’esprit maléfique du serpent. Elle a remercié l’homme de Dieu pour sa délivrance et l’a appelé à l’aider à se réconcilier avec son époux, ajoutant qu’elle voulait vivre amicalement avec sa famille. Elle a également ajouté qu’elle voulait demander l’avis de Dieu sur son mariage.
Honorant l’invitation de l’homme de Dieu à une réunion de réconciliation à la SCOAN, son mari, M. Nwokoye, natif de l’Etat d’Anambra au Nigéria, a dit aux fidèles comment sa femme voulait le contrôler et comment elle menaçait toujours de s’enfuir avec leurs enfants. Selon lui, il a failli avoir un accident mortel à cause des troubles dans son mariage. Même s’il avait juré de mettre fin au mariage, il ne pouvait refuser l’invitation de l’homme de Dieu, qu’il disait respecter tant pour sa réputation de porte-parole de Dieu. La sœur de M. Nwokeoye qui est venue avec lui, a également appelé l’homme de Dieu à délivrer son frère, soulignant que les problèmes dans leur mariage n’étaient pas unilatéraux.
Prophète T.B. Joshua a parlé de la part de l’Esprit de Dieu en disant à M. Nwokoye que sa femme avait été délivrée du mauvais esprit. Selon l’homme de Dieu, leur mariage est de Dieu. Il a également conseillé à M. Nwokoye d’être libéré après quoi leur mariage pourrait être dédié à Dieu. Il leur a assuré une coexistence pacifique après leur délivrance. L’homme de Dieu a également profité de l’occasion pour exhorter les chrétiens sur la nécessité de laisser les offenses afin que leurs cœurs puissent se connecter à l’Esprit de Dieu.

 It was an indescribable encounter with the Spirit of the Living God. The SCOAN Sunday service of January 22, 2017 brought congregants and viewers all over the world face to face with the undiluted demonstration of God’s illimitable power. The choir provided the musical platform for all to praise the Lord. The Mass Prayer was massive in every sense of the word. Troubled souls, entrapped destinies and the spiritually oppressed received their freedom in the mighty name of Jesus. For those whose yokes have been lifted by the benevolent Master of the Universe, it was an opportunity for them to testify to the goodness of God in their lives. Their testimonies, as marks of gratitude to Heaven, also remain sources of inspiration to those who believe in the Lord.

Exhorting Christians all prophet-t-b-joshuaover the world, Prophet T.B. Joshua took them on an excursion into the things of the Spirit. According to the man of God, the voice of the Holy Spirit brings about the desired changes in our lives. He observed that no one who has experienced the Holy Spirit ever remained the same in any way: “When the Holy Spirit speaks whether you like it or not, changes are beginning”. The man of God acknowledged the place of the flesh in a Christian’s life but added that through God’s grace, we are allowed to overcome our mistakes and challenges caused by the flesh: “So far as there is flesh, mistakes will come and you will learn and move on. So, each time that mistake comes – test. Promotion cannot come without tests and trials. God has given us the capacity to learn from our challenges. If you don’t want challenges, you don’t want to learn and if you don’t want to learn, you don’t want to move forward.”

Concluding, Prophet T.B. Joshua reminded Christians that serving God is not by strength or through elegant speech but with wholeheartedness. He also urged them to pursue spiritual prosperity first before every other thing, “You cannot continue to serve God with physical strength, elegant speech – you must serve God with all you heart. Our spiritual life first. If there is any first place we must grow or prosper, it is in our spiritual life.

evangelist-yinkaEarlier, Evangelist Yinka gave congregants food for thought as she delivered her message titled, JESUS HOLDS OUR FUTURE. She admonished them not to get discouraged when events around them look gloomy in the face of the testimonies of other people, adding that God has their future in His hands: “Sometimes in life, we find ourselves wondering about what is happening around us, listening to the testimonies of others.” According to her, “If we believe that Jesus is our Lord and Saviour, a new body, soul and spirit await us one day.”

Continuing, she urged Christians to guard against turning against the grace of God, adding that when the eyes of our faith are opened, we will see the value of our trial which God often uses to prepare us for new levels in life. She demanded that Christians submit their lives to Christ in order to enjoy the unending connection through grace that abides in Him: “When you make Jesus Christ the CEO, the Boss, the Director of all that you do, you become connected to the One who made you.” Maintaining that “It honours God to believe Him even while every sense contradicts Him,” she added that if our decision to serve God is borne out of faith, trust and commitment, then we will surely overcome.

 

TESTIMONIES

 

NO MORE FEAR OF DYING IN MY SLEEP

He was on the verge of transiting to the great beyond but God had other plans for him. Pastor Maurice Alamba, in a soft-spoken recollection of those horrible moments, told congregants how his life was at a low ebb ravaged by the destructive trio of severe sleep apnea, severe high blood pressure and severe headaches. For the Democratic Republic of Congo national resident in the United Kingdom, the seventh day of June, 2016 will remain an unforgettable moment in his life, as it marked a new beginning for him. That fateful day, he had received the anointed touch of the man of God and was set free from the ailments that made him live an artificial life with the aid of a machine.

Before his encounter with God at the Arena of Liberty, he had lived a life he never bargained for. He would spend the whole day sleeping, while at night, he would struggle to sleep with the aid of a machine. It was a seriously disheartening experience for the man whose sleep depended on the aid of a machine. It was absolutely unnatural and unaccepted that a human being would have to struggle to sleep. Deep down in his heart, he knew that he needed God lest the worst happened. And so, his decision to visit The SCOAN was the greatest move he had made.pastor-maurice-alamba

According to him, his passion for The SCOAN emanated from the wonderful demonstration of God’s power he had watched on Emmanuel TV. And so, coming to the Arena of Liberty, he had absolute faith that his 13-year-old challenges would bow to the superior power of God. Describing his healing, he said that as soon as the man of God laid hands on him at the Prayer Line, three things happened almost in a quick succession. First, he felt an electric shock all over his body after which something went out of him. As he was trying to fathom what was going on, he felt a cool sensation around him and found himself on the floor. According to him, he felt very light when he eventually stood up.

After his healing, Mr Alamba enjoyed his sleep without any encumbrances. He told congregants that, for the first time in so many years, he was able to sleep naturally without the aid of a machine. His breathing and general wellbeing have since been re-engineered for optimum living by the Holy Spirit. Since June 7, 2016, his story has been that of thanksgiving and total commitment to the ways of God. Demonstrating his ability to breathe well before The SCOAN congregation, he advised people all over the world to keep hope by being obedient to God, adding that He is faithful.

 

 BABY BOY PROPHESIED BEFORE CONCEPTION

Mr Michael Ugwu was fed up with the nasty challenges life had thrown at him. His businesses had crumbled following his decision to build a house in his hometown. The house itself also suffered stagnation as it got stuck at the roofing level. Besides this, the couple suffered from barrenness for six years. As they battled with the issue of barrenness, a court case involving a land he had bought also surfaced. In a nutshell, Mr Ugwu had so many nuts to crack. As his search for a solution continued, he visited The SCOAN on several occasions but his real encounter with the power of God came during a Sunday service in 2014, while Prophet T.B. Joshua was prophesying to the congregation.

That day, the man of God had walked up to him to ask about the house he was building as well as the court case concerning his land. As he confirmed the prophecy to be true, the man of God also told him that he would have a baby boy. By that time, his wife was not even pregnant and had been battling with the problem of multiple fibroids. Mr Ugwu seized that opportunity to key into the prophetic message of the man of God concerning him and his wife. He received the Morning Water with which he ministered and prayed with, together with his wife. After a while, his wife fell pregnant and that was the beginning of the floodgate of blessings that God opened unto him and his family.

After nine months, Mrs Ugwu delivered a baby boy as Prophet T.B. Joshua had prophesied. mr-micheal-ugwu-and-familyThough, due to the multiple fibroids his wife had, the doctors had wanted her to undergo surgery for the removal of the abnormal growths but the couple chose to exercise their faith by ministering the Morning Water and asking God to ensure a safe delivery. God, in His infinite mercies, hearkened to the voice of their supplication and made delivery smooth and safe – a feat that astounded everyone, including the doctors whose medical rules have been broken by the supernatural order of Heaven.

After the birth of their son, Mr Ugwu’s life witnessed more of God’s unending blessings. His financial life improved just as everything turned around for his good. He went ahead to buy a car for his wife and son for their easy movement from place to place without having to trek under the scorching sun or inside the rain. Like a fruit tree in its blooming season, his life was overtaken by breakthroughs. He was able to complete to taste, the uncompleted building which the man of God had pointed out in his prophecy.

Corroborating his prophecy, his wife told congregants how she held strongly to her faith concerning the prophecy given to her husband by the man of God. She had absolute confidence in God’s Word to the extent that she kept on buying male baby clothes, against the advice of people. She also revealed how the multiple fibroids in her were ejected after she had ministered the Morning Water on the day of delivery. Thanking God for restoring joy and laughter to their lives, they advised people to be faithful to God in all things and to believe in those God sends.

NO MORE DISABILITY, DEPRESSION AND SUICIDAL THOUGHTS

Arriving in a wheelchair, Miss Nicole Wezolek with her mother Mrs Marefe Wezolek came to The SCOAN to seek redemption from an incurable severe multiple sclerosis that had been a thorn in the flesh of their family. They had battled with the problems of depression and suicidal thoughts. According to the German mother, when she was pregnant with her daughter many years ago, she suffered from depression but was able to weather the storm of her own case through prayer.card And so, it was not really a big surprise when she discovered that her grown-up daughter had started exhibiting those inimical traits. Placed in the B-Category as 80% disabled and dependent, Nicole would complain of numbness from her hands to different parts of her body. She would also wear black clothes, visit graveyards and isolate herself from other members of the family.

wheel-chairFor the fact that Nicole had attempted suicide on two different occasions, the matter would require a spiritual solution rather than the many doses of prescribed drugs she had been subjected to. And that indeed, was the reason they visited The SCOAN to seek the face of God. Like every other congregant, they were seated in the auditorium during a Sunday service when the word of prophecy from the man of God hit them like a bolt. Laying his hand on Nicole’s head, the man of God had said, There is a suicidal spirit in the family. Everybody thinks of how to commit suicide. Depression. This one has it. The second time she’d escaped suicide. Mrs Marefe  Wezolek confirmed the prophecy to be true and afterwards, received deliverance together with her daughter, Nicole, from the man of God, in the mighty name of Jesus. After their deliverance, mother and daughter cheerfully shared their testimony at The Live SCOAN Sunday Service. Nicole thanked God for using Prophet T.B. Joshua to save her from the grip of depression and suicidal thoughts. She told the congregants and viewers all over the world that she was free and feeling very happy as all the bad feelings she once harboured had gone. She also said that she regained the sense of feeling immediately after her deliverance, confirming that the numbness had gone. Demonstrating her ability to run back and forth, she declared that she no longer needed the wheelchair. The Power in the name Jesus Christ restored Nicole’s status from registered disabled to able-bodied! On their return to Germany, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave the family $2,000 to assist them to restart their lives with Nicole’s new found freedom!

 

PROPHECY RESTORES MARRIAGE ON THE VERGE OF COLLAPSE

He had involved himself in an extra-marital affair with another woman outside his matrimonial home. Mr Joseph Nwodo was enjoying the illicit affair, not knowing that it would lead to dire consequences. All of a sudden, his business fortunes started crumbling to the extent that he found it difficult to cater to the needs of his family. Whenever he was about to receive a breakthrough, he would dream of a woman and things would fall apart. His fate was left hanging precariously on the precipice of an uncertain future until he visited The SCOAN where the Spirit of God exposed his problems through Prophet T.B. Joshua.It was during a Sunday service while the man of God was ministering prophecy to the congregation. “There was one woman you met. It was never your making but you just fell in love with the woman; this is affecting you,” said Prophet T.B. Joshua as he called Mr Nwodo out to lay hands on him. Shaking profusely under the rampant influence of the Holy Spirit, Mr Nwodo found himself on the floor. The Spirit of Godmr-joseph-chukwuemeka-nwodo chased out the evil spirit responsible for his infidelity.After his deliverance, life became meaningful and encouraging. His business boomed like never before. He regained his senses and realised that he had to formalise his marriage by offsetting all the traditional requirements demanded by his wife’s family. His financial responsibility to his family improved dramatically to the extent that he even bought a car for them. While his relationship with his wife has become very solid, his lust for other women stopped.Recounting how he visited The SCOAN full of disappointment and frustration, Mr Nwodo told congregants that he was shocked when the man of God traced the root of his problems and thereafter delivered him. Testifying in company of his wife and children, he thanked God for his deliverance, adding that things had really changed for the better in his life, marriage-wise and business-wise. On her part, Mrs Nwodo joined her husband in thanking God for his deliverance, adding that it took wisdom for her to cope with all the discouraging experiences she encountered in her marriage. As far as she was concerned, their problems were over. Mr Nwodo advised people all over the world to desist from anything that does not please God.

 

 

CULTISM KICKED OUT

Initiated into the habits of drinking and smoking in December, 2004, Christian, never knew that a bigger and more dangerous initiation was awaiting him. The friends who cajoled him into those bad habits also thought it would be nice to ‘blend’ him into a cult group, the Eiye Confraternity. After stupefying the young man with a lot of alcohol, he was beaten to a pulp as one of the many wicked processes of his underground initiation. He was given a charm to swallow and was made to swear to an oath of secrecy.christian-attah-and-family

He was thereafter provided with a rifle with which his cult group carried out operations. They intimidated other students, especially the female ones whom they robbed of their valuables at will. The proceeds of their robbery operations were usually remitted to their leader whom they referred to as Senior Man. With time, he discovered new fancies, including tattoos which he had all over his body for different purposes. The more he associated with members of his cult, the greater his problems became. The spirit behind the tattoos on his body always led him to commit evil acts such as stealing at gun point.

The young Nigerian from Kogi State would beat his wife blue-black whenever she dared to question his nefarious activities. There was a day he beat her while she was pregnant and almost strangulated her just because she showed concern about his lifestyle. Because of his waywardness, he had quarrels with his father who threatened to disown him. His relationship with his father had already gone irredeemably sour but for the intervention of his mother. His mother was largely instrumental to his deliverance at The SCOAN. She had encouraged him to come with her to the Arena of Liberty.

Christian bowed to his mother’s pressure and visited The SCOAN two weeks ago. It was during The SCOAN Sunday Mass Prayer that the Spirit of God caught up with him. As the man of God commanded all hindrances and limitations out of the lives of congregants, the power of God fell upon him and a spiritual battle ensued immediately. Manifesting the demons that had been behind his predicament, he was uncontrollably violent and had to be held down as the demons could not stand the fire of the Holy Spirit. With all his resistance, the young man still found himself on the floor, humbled by the power of God.

christian-attah-and-familyTestifying in the company of his wife, children and parents, Christian thanked God for the new life he had found after his deliverance. According to him, he now loves his wife and abhors all those bad habits he had engaged in in the past. He advised youths to desist from the things of the world. A young man who once threatened to kill his father and younger brother has now found peace in Christ Jesus through deliverance at The SCOAN.

His parents also thanked God for his deliverance. They recounted how he almost destroyed the entire family by corrupting his younger ones. For fear of being killed by his son’s cult group, his father had also relocated to Ghana and vowed never to return unless the young man was delivered. And true to his prayers, his son received deliverance. According to him, the deliverance of his son was also conveyed to him by Prophet T.B. Joshua in a dream.

According to Christian’s mother, she conceived her son through ungodly circumstances. As a panacea to her recurrent stomach problem, she had received herbal concoctions from her husband’s father. Eventually, the now late grandfather of her son appeared to her in a dream and gave her the gift of a baby boy. After a while, she conceived Christian and gave birth to him after nine months. She said she had noticed his strange behaviours early but could not do much as he kept lying to her until he became a social menace. However, his parents urged parents to put whatever challenges they face into prayer.

 

SNAKE SPIRIT SCHEMES SCATTERED THROUGH PRAYER

She had been under serious attacks by a spirit of snake which had always pushed her to leave her marriage and unknown to her, most of the negative experiences she was having in her marriage were being caused by the evil spirit. Mrs Angela Nwokoye suffered untold embarrassments in her marriage. After their first child, her husband fathered two other children out of wedlock. They would quarrel endlessly over his drinking habit, turning the home into an arena of crisis. For the Mozambican living in South Africa, all her efforts to get her husband to his right senses failed to yield any result.mrs-angel-olga

According to Mrs Nwokoye, her extended family abandoned her and left her to her unfortunate fate. With four children for her husband, he had deserted her and had moved in with another woman and only came home occasionally to change his clothes. All her plans to confront her husband’s mistress were to no avail as the lady insisted she was not going to leave him, arguing that he lured her into the relationship. According to her husband’s mistress, unless he decided to walk out of the relationship, she would never let go of him. With those sad realities staring her in the face, Mrs Nwokoye knew no peace even as her children were scattered due to the instability of her marriage. For two years, her husband lived with his mistress and left her to sort herself out.

When she eventually realised that her problems were not ordinary, she used her husband’s money to transport her to Nigeria to seek the face of God at The SCOAN. When she arrived at The SCOAN, Mrs Nwokoye received deliverance during a Monday Prayer service after evangelists had ministered the Morning Water on her. By the time the man of God arrived at the scene, she was already dazed spiritually as the demon behind her marital problem had manifested, confessing all the horrible things it had done to her marriage.

Laying his hand on her head, the man of God brought about the last straw that broke the camel’s back. He sealed her deliverance in the mighty name of Jesus and declared her totally free. A day after her deliverance, the snake spirit had appeared to her while she was asleep, lamenting why she had to offer herself up for deliverance. As she tried to wake up to know who was speaking to her, the snake vanished and never returned. From that moment, she knew that she had been freed from the onslaught of the evil snake spirit. She thanked the man of God for delivering her and called on him to help her reconcile with her husband, adding that she wanted to live amicably with her family. She also revealed that she wanted to seek God’s opinion about her marriage.

mrs-angel-olgaHonouring the invitation of the man of God to a reconciliatory meeting at The SCOAN, her husband, Mr Nwokoye, a native of Anambra State, Nigeria, told congregants how his wife wanted to control him and how she always threatened to run away with their children. According to him, he nearly had a fatal accident because of the troubles in his marriage. Even though he had vowed to end the marriage, he couldn’t turn down the invitation of the man of God, whom he said he respects so much for his reputation as a mouthpiece of God. Mr Nwokeoye’s sister who came along with him, also called on the man of God to deliver her brother, stressing that the problems in their marriage were not one-sided.

Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke the mind of God by telling Mr Nwokoye that his wife had been delivered from the evil spirit. According to the man of God, their marriage is from God. He also advised Mr Nwokoye to undergo deliverance after which their marriage would be rededicated to God. He assured them of a peaceful coexistence following their deliverance. The man of God also used the opportunity to admonish Christians on the need to let go of offences so that their hearts could connect with the Spirit of God.

 

 

 

LOOK WITHIN YOU

The presence of God was well-felt as congregants expressed their faith by keying into all the glorious moments of the service. Singing and dancing along with the choir and applauding those who came out to testify to the goodness of God in their lives, they demonstrated the fact that their own testimonies were on the way. They also committed their lives into God’s benevolent hands during the Mass Prayer, positioning themselves for greater uplifting even as the kingdom of darkness was brought into total submission to the power and glory of the Most High.

T.B. JOSHUA

Speaking about faith, Prophet T.B. Joshua urged Christians to always meditate on the Word as it has the ability to ignite faith when it dominates the heart and influences our character: “All you need is to meditate on the Word. The more you meditate on the Word, the more your heart acts upon the Word. Don’t forget when the Word dominates your heart, it influences your character and conduct. When faith comes, it influences your conduct and character – it is no longer what you want to do but what God wants you to do. Allow this to dominate your heart.” He also observed that faith is trust which cannot be accorded to an unreliable entity. According to him, God being our only dependable and reliable Refuge, would always respond to our prayers and yearnings when they emanate from our faith-filled hearts: “Faith is a trust – the kind of trust you cannot give to man. Who is trustworthy? Who is reliable? Who has no beginning and end? It is Someone that is trustworthy, reliable and has no beginning and end that we can give our trust to. You cannot trust a man who has a beginning and end, someone who will die and leave you one day. When there is God, there is power. Anointing is the power of God. When God smiles, power smiles. When God sits, power sits. When God walks, power walks. When God looks, power looks. Without faith, you cannot put a demand on the anointing – demand for blessing, deliverance and salvation. That is why the Bible says, only faith pleases God.”

The man of God concluded by reminding Christians that faith is maintenance. He submitted that the beautiful things of life can only be sustained if faith is maintained: “Faith is maintenance. You maintain your life if you live the life of faith – you will be able to maintain your finances and health. To maintain healing and deliverance, without faith, it is not possible. You follow Jesus through faith. To follow Him demands faith, employs faith. Between you and God – the barrier is faith. If you don’t have faith, you don’t know whom you are serving. When faith comes, it influences your character and conduct.”

Earlier, in a message titled LOOK WITHIN YOU, Evangelist Olamide admonished Christians not to base their judgements on external qualities but instead consider the hidden strengths in people just as God did with many great men and women in the Bible. evangelist-olamideShe summed up her message thus: “Man oftentimes makes a mistaken judgment of character but the Lord only values the holy faith hidden in the heart beyond human perception. When you come to God, He is not interested in your outward qualities and skills but at your faith because that is what makes you one with Him. But today when we are looking for a leader, we are tempted to look only at externals. We fail to realize that human point of view is limited but God’s point of view looks beyond and is unlimited. You need to discover your root in God. A man of faith is not satisfied by the world but he looks beyond it.” She left the following advice to people of God all over the world: “Your life will always go to the level of your words because we measure our Christian life by the thoughts in our heart. Your words express your thoughts which are the seeds of your life.  Order your thoughts aright in accordance to God’s Word.”

TESTIMONIES

EVEN IN THE FACE OF DEATH, GOD’S POWER TRIUMPHED

Preparing to travel from Yaounde to Douala on October 21st, 2016, Mrs Pauline Moanyang received a discouraging information about the nature of the highway linking the two Cameroonian cities. A landslide had cut the road into two, making it a death trap of some sort and barring vehicles from plying that route. Tinkering with options, she had considered travelling by air instead but was sorely disappointed when she realized that all flights that day were cancelled. The only option left for her was to travel by train. When she rushed to the train station, the crowd that had gathered there sent shivers down her spine. In spite of the enormity of the crowd, she was able to book for a seat.mrs-moanyang-pauline

As she made to enter the train, she recollected the words of Prophet T.B. Joshua which encouraged people to pray wherever they find themselves, especially during travels. Those words reverberated strongly in her memory. She had thought of ministering the Morning Water when those words of the man of God crept into her consciousness and moved her into a powerful prayer. “Oh Holy Spirit, take more of me and give me more of You – more of Your faithfulness, more of Your protection. Lord Jesus, let Your favour and mercy speak for me throughout this journey.” She thereafter ministered the Morning Water on herself and on her luggage.

The journey commenced with the train filled to the brim. As they approached a bridge, something unpalatable occurred. The train was trying to negotiate a turn when the coach in which she was seated went off track, sending the last four coaches into summersaults and into a deep slope. As the ghastly drama ensued, Mrs Moanyang cried out in anguish: “Lord Jesus, save me. Rescue me. Rescue me!” Not given to such horrible scenarios, she fainted and woke up within minutes of the catastrophic experience only to discover that all her belongings had torn to shreds with only her Morning Water and Good Morning Sticker surviving the devastation. One strange thing she could not forget in a hurry was the fact that as the commotion lasted and as bodies were being flung from one angle to the other, a force she could not comprehend kept her glued to her seat. “God of Prophet T.B. Joshua, rescue me,” she continued to cry as she found herself stuck with an iron bar preventing her from any form of movement. At that point, she was under the weight of dead and dying bodies.pauline

Trapped in the midst of the dead and clutching an iron, a voice directed her on how to turn the iron so she could free herself from the deadly entanglement. To her utmost surprise, aside from herself, the only other survivors were the two babies whose mothers, she had assisted to carry them when they could not find enough seats. Mrs Moanyang was flabbergasted beyond words as she narrated her experience before The SCOAN congregation. It could best be described as an appointment with death which was thwarted by the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua. “I don’t know how to express my gratitude to God for rescuing my life,” she said while testifying last Sunday at the Arena of Liberty. “Belong to the ever believing group by trusting in the Lord and making God’s Word the standard for your life,” she advised people all over the world, especially those who watched her live on Emmanuel TV.

 

A SHOUT OF ‘LET THERE BE LIGHT’ DELIVERS BABY BOY

The couple had envisaged a happy home in which having a child of their own would be a great blessing from God. Alas, their expectations were not to be as persistent miscarriages played the kill-joy to their union as husband and wife. For ambassador and Mrs Raphael Horsfall, life had lost its meaning without a child of their own. Mrs Horsfall had had seven different miscarriages before her husband summoned the faith to go the way of God. Together, they agreed to pitch their tent with God at The SCOAN, believing that their case will not escape the anointing that breaks the yoke. Proceeding to The SCOAN, the couple received prayer from Prophet T.B. Joshua who later blessed them with the Morning Water and the Good Morning Sticker.amb-and-mrs-rapheal-and-son

Returning to their base in Abuja, Nigeria, the couple ministered the Morning Water with devotion and prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV. Days later, Ambassador Horsfall received a call from his wife to tell him that she had missed her period. Ordinarily, he was not excited because he had heard such news for the umpteenth time. However, deep down in his heart, there was a strong conviction that something new had happened.

The couple continued to minister the Morning Water and seized every opportunity to pray along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV. In the spirit of thanksgiving, the couple visited The SCOAN when the pregnancy was seven months-old to show gratitude to God for keeping it safe without a miscarriage in the belief that He would do more in their lives. Ambassador & Mrs Horsfall had the opportunity to meet Prophet T.B. Joshua who pronounced a safe delivery for the couple.

Days later, the couple travelled to Atlanta, Georgia to deliver the baby. When it was time for his wife to deliver, the couple’s faith was rocked with an unexpected news from the doctor that Mrs Horsfall was diagnosed with accumulation of fluid in her womb. The doctor wanted an urgent caesarian section, or else, she would lose the baby and perhaps, her own life. For Ambassador Horsfall, he stood fast to his faith on the word of the prophet that his wife would deliver their baby safely. Upon his insistence, the wife was taken out of the theatre and back to the delivery room.2b

The doctors persisted and handed Ambassador Horsfall a consent form to sign as they insisted their medical centre was too reputed to allow any grave unforeseen mishap with Mrs. Horsfall to tarnish their image. Running out of time, Ambassador Horsfall demanded to be left alone with his wife in the delivery room for a while. The doctors obliged, but kept the couple under the microscope as they watched them on a CCTV screen.

As his wife slipped into weakness, Ambassador Horsfall boldly told his wife that they had all the evangelical items they received from Prophet T.B. Joshua and so it was time to act faith and demonstrate the Power of God in the Morning Water and Good Morning Sticker. “At the count of 5, you will shout ‘Let There be Light!’” Ambassador Horsfall instructed his wife. She agreed.
“1, 2, 3,…” began Ambassador Horsfall.

“Let there be Light!” screamed Mrs. Anita Horsfall with all her might, before her husband had the chance to reach 4 on his count. Lo and behold, “Let There Be Light” pushed out the bouncing baby boy, leaving the doctors bemused in front of the monitoring screen. “What did you do? What did you say?” the doctors questioned, as they rushed into the delivery room to see the baby in his arms. “’Let There Be Light!’ is the prayer my Pastor Prophet T.B. Joshua taught us,” the joyful Ambassador Horsfall told the doctors.

Advising the congregation and viewers all over the world, Ambassador Horsfall said: “Knowledge is not the key, obedience is, as Prophet T.B. Joshua said. Act faith with whatever Prophet T.B. Joshua tells you to do or gives you.”

 

SPIRITS OF DEPRESSION AND SUICIDE UPROOTED BY THE POWER OF PROPHECY

She had been enmeshed in career failure and stagnation and needed to find her way out of the mess. At some point, she drew close to God and even preached to unbelievers. Those days, she was always exhibiting a high sense of joy until she suddenly lost it and was overtaken by sorrow where an inexplicable longing always drew tears from her eyes. Sometimes, she would isolate herself from family and friends only to brood over some pain which only she could feel. On several occasions, Mrs Thania Requeno would argue and quarrel with her husband and would laugh over her funny behaviours when she was later reminded about them.thaino

However, that sorrow that had haunted her life and career would soon be eliminated after Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied to her on January 1st, 2017 during the New Year service. The yokes of depression and suicidal thoughts were cast out of her life in the name of Jesus Christ. The man of God restored the lost joy in her life, giving her hope and the peace of mind to face tomorrow. According to the United States of America citizen, she had actually come to The SCOAN for financial and career breakthrough but ended up getting delivered from the spirits of depression and suicide.

Thania’s husband, Akim spoke extensively being the one who had been adversely affected by his wife’s suicidal episodes. He said when they first got married, she tried to hide this depression and would go into mood swings and tried to escape by drinking alcohol. Later, he would find her crying. Akim, originally from Benin Republic, a neighboring country to Nigeria, recounted how he believed that he had left T.B. Joshua behind in Africa because he thought that he had nothing to offer so he rather went in search of a solution to their problem in mega churches in the USA. mr-and-mrs-thaina-and-akeem-requenoHowever, to his shock and amazement, a staff in one of the mega churches he attended asked him if he had heard of Prophet T.B. Joshua since he was from west Africa. He bluntly replied that he would have nothing to do with ‘that man!’ He kept pondering over his encounter with the minister. That night, he had a revelation and from there, he became convinced that Prophet T.B. Joshua is indeed a true man of God and resolved to send his friends in Africa to help him get the Morning Water. Through this means, he was able to file for a residence permit and got that breakthrough to the glory of God.

Thanking God for her deliverance, Thania advised the congregation saying, ‘Trust in God alone for everything and in anything’.

 

YOKE OF BEDWETTING OBEYS THE VOICE OF GOD

Ms Bernice Kekeli Flamour received a word of prophecy about her bedwetting problem from the man of God. According to Prophet T.B. Joshua, the bedwetting problem was an attack that was aimed at destroying her marriage. Confirming the prophecy to be true, Ms Flamour received deliverance from the man of God. The Ghanaian Customs Officer returned to The SCOAN last Sunday for her testimony. According to her, when she visited The SCOAN, she prayed that the man of God would locate her and had even gone into meditation, appealing to the Holy Spirit to help her. Truly, she was located by the Spirit of God.ms-bernice-kekeli-fiamor

Her problem actually started seven years ago when she was posted to her first station. During that posting, she had dreamt that she was in a classroom with colleagues and was pressed. As she made for the restroom to ease herself in the dream, she suddenly woke up to find her body wet and cold. That dream continued to rear its head, making her to wet the bed wherever she was posted to. It had been a very embarrassing experience for her as she always found it difficult and shameful to dry her wet matress in the barracks environment where she lived.  She also deliberately avoided visitors so that they wouldn’t get to know about her problem.

She had even stopped drinking water at night, thinking it could help her but it never did. But ever since she received her deliverance from God through Prophet T.B. Joshua, she has stopped experiencing that evil dream. Whenever she feels pressed, something always alerts her to go and ease herself. Thanking God for lifting a heavy yoke out of her life, she advised congregants and people all over the world to have faith in God and never give up.

 

MEN SLEPT WITH A SNAKE IN ME

She had been taken to a river to wash plates by her mother when she was eight years-old. At the river, after the washing was over, she and her siblings decided to have their bath. But as the bathing continued, her mother noticed that she was going deeper into the bowels of the river and asked every one of them to stop so they could return home. When they returned home, young Flora went to her room and slept off. The next morning while her siblings were dressed for school, she told her mother that she wouldn’t be able to go to school because she was tired and could not explain the way she felt. That same morning, she consumed three plates of food in quick succession, making her mother to suspect that something was wrong with her. The young girl felt that there was something inside her that devoured all the food that went into her stomach.5

Flora started acting in a rather strange manner. She would always want to have her way even when her mother thought otherwise. One day, she had a terrible dream in which a very big snake entered her private part. According to her, after that dream, she developed an unusually nasty sexual urge in her dreams. She also dreamt of herself flying like a bird, travelling to different locations and markets, buying things from old women. At age 15, the snake inside her became her guide. It would instruct and direct her on things to do and places to go. It revealed to her the types and colours of weave-on and dresses she should put on in order to seduce men.

She became so seductive that friends would rally around her, urging her to follow them out to night clubs. Because of her dancing dexterity, men would fight their girlfriends and push them away just to have her dance with them. According to her, her dancing was a carry-over from the marine kingdom where she occupied an exalted position as queen of the coast and controlled a lot of wealth and influence. Whenever she slept with a man, he would release straight into the snake’s mouth and such a man would never want to leave her. He would continue to desire her until something terrible would happen to him. She had a leg chain given to her in the marine kingdom with which she attracted men. The evil spirit in her destroyed marriages and also culminated in her inflicting bloody injuries on people.

ms-flora-ruth-akinpelumi

She had had two sons for a man but their union was truncated by one of her spiritual husbands who actually slept with her, leaving her in pains and making her physical husband’s advances worthless. Flora also met another man and had a child by him. She was just being used by the marine world to destroy her own life in instalments. A friend who had invited her to Lagos from Ondo State where she was languishing in frustration and joblessness, noticed something was wrong with her and told her about coming to The SCOAN. When she eventually came to The SCOAN, she refused to pray. Instead, the evil spirit was telling her to run away because the man of God would soon come with fire. As she was considering those evil suggestions, she received a hot slap on her head. Before she could gather herself, the fire of the Holy Ghost had taken over her entire body.

Flora received her deliverance and is today free from the powers of the marine kingdom. According to her, there is peace and joy in her life as she is now a new person in Christ Jesus. Thanking God for her deliverance, she advised men to be wary of the women they frolic around with, especially those who are still in the world. She also called on mothers to advise their daughters to live godly lives and that they should know that all that glitters is not gold.

 

ADDICTION TO THE INTERNET, SPIRIT OF PORNOGRAPHY DISLODGED BY THE ANOINTING

Miss Erica Masaoe was addicted to the internet to the extent that she started to share her nude pictures online. According to her, at the age of 15, she developed serious interest in watching pornography and saw it as a normal way of life. As she became engrossed in the ungodly act, it took over her senses and made her to masturbate. Often times, a sense of guilt would twine her conscience. She would ask herself why on earth would she have to succumb to such an immoral fancy. But despite the momentary soul-search, she was unable to resist the rampaging urge.erica-jimmy-masaoe-prophecy-testimony

Her problem grew in scope and intensity, leading her to the social media where she found unlimited platforms to exercise her pornographic inclination. She would chat from morning to night, paying less attention to other more productive areas of her life. As a result of her addiction, she suffered rejection, depression and became isolated socially. However, she soon discovered other means of keeping herself happy in drinking and smoking and became totally detached from the things of God. She found it extremely difficult to pray or even read her Bible and became easily irritated.

Her dream life was not left out. She dreamt of mermaids who would threaten her that unless she worshipped them, she would die. The relationship she had with her countryman on the internet was actually centered on an exchange of nude pictures and according to her, rather than develop into a well-meaning association, it only aided her to masturbate and nothing more. The young Tanzanian woman was enmeshed in those unholy alliances until she visited The SCOAN and had an encounter with God through His servant, Prophet T.B. Joshua. Seated in the auditorium during the Sunday service, the man of God prophesied to her. “You have a serious addiction to the internet. There is one that even sent a naked picture,” observed the man of God. Having confirmed the prophecy to be true, Miss Masaoe received the anointed touch of the man of God and was set free from the evil bondage through the power of the Holy Spirit.

During her testimony last Sunday, the young woman radiated great joy and confidence in Christ Jesus as she narrated how her addiction almost ruined her life. Now, totally delivered and free from those immoral habits, she advised parents to endeavor to watch their children and the type of companies they keep.

prophet-tb-joshuaThe SCOAN Sunday service of January 8, 2017 provided an opportunity for congregants and Christians all over the world to build their faith and connect to the Spirit of God. The atmosphere was filled with the presence of God as the choir drew the attention of God’s children to the need to always praise and worship their Father in Spirit and in truth. The testimonies, prayers and prophetic declarations made every moment a remarkable encounter in the House of the Lord.

Admonishing Christians on the importance of prayer and the pertinent need to build and sustain their faith, Prophet T.B. Joshua also reminded them of the urgency of praying with devotion. According to him, it is the connection point between them and God: “Time like this is time to pay attention, not this kind of attention we pay out there – attention with devotion. How do we pay attention? We have to be in an attitude of prayer. As I’m talking to you now, you are supposed to be praying. Viewers at home, wherever you are, as you are looking, paying attention to what I am saying, be in an attitude of prayer. Continue to pray. Simple language. “Oh Holy Spirit, take more of me and give me more of You, more of Your faithfulness, goodness, kindness, purity, holiness.” Continuing, the man of God emphasized the fact that devotional prayer avails much to the Christian, including the ability to see visions. He also added that Christians should imbibe the idea of praying all the time and everywhere: “Prayer must be an integral part of you. You must be in an attitude of prayer. ‘Take more of me and give me more of You’. Your heart is the prayer room. Your heart is the temple of God. You want to see visions? You must see them with your heart. You must learn to pray in the Spirit. Everywhere can be an altar. Satan keeps catching people unprepared.

Concluding, Prophet T.B. Joshua urged Christians to exercise their faith by using it to put a demand on the anointing. According to him, “Faith is a vacuum that draws the anointing from Jesus. Self-healing will happen. You will be very surprised that the sickness you have been talking about, when you wake up, it will be gone”.

evangelist-anneEarlier, in her message titled THE END OF OURSELVES, Evangelist Anne lamented the intellectual disposition of modern day Christians who seem to position themselves as God’s enemies rather than obey His unquestionable commands. She made reference to Abraham who, in spite of the many years he waited before having a son, never hesitated to offer him to God who commanded him to do so in a rare test of faith. According to her, Abraham trusted and obeyed God because he knew that His command was final: “It was at the point of total obedience that God brought the substitute. God will wait for you at the point of your obedience. It was at that point when he was about to complete the assignment that God brought solution”.

She concluded by urging Christians to uphold the will of God, irrespective of the opposition they encounter in the world so that their God-given vision would stand the test of time as it did in the days of Master Jesus, Abraham and Job: “If God gives you a vison and it is opposed by men, don’t reduce your vision – stay in the will of God.

 

TESTIMONIES

SAVED FROM THE CHOPPING BLOCK

Miss Esther Kehinde, her older sister Deborah and their father came to The SCOAN to thank God for the extraordinary thing He had done in replacing her head with the Cross. Yes, literally the Cross! Esther left her house for school and was expected back in the early evening. However, when the clock struck 7pm, 8pm and continued to tick away into the late night, panic ran through the spines of her sister Deborah and their father who united in prayers. While their father prayed with Esther’s picture, Deborah ministered the Morning Water on Esther’s bed and put a demand on the anointing by asking the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua to return her sister home safely from wherever she had gone.esther-family

Recounting her unbelievable experience, Esther said that on her way back from school, an unknown man had violently knocked her unconscious. When she came to her senses, she found herself in the midst of several wailing captives. She was panicked as to what was happening and why they were crying. Within seconds, she saw people beheaded and sliced into bits. In that moment it dawned on her that she was about to be murdered. As she looked at the killers, a demand came in for fresh blood. “Yes, there is a new arrival,” one of the henchmen said, pointing in the direction of Esther. The thought of being beheaded and her flesh sold to the human flesh and blood buyers rushed through her mind. They motioned for her to place her head on the chopping board. She was forced to obey. As the killer raised his ax up to chop off Esther’s head, he suddenly cried out that he saw a Cross instead of a human head. This threw the killer into a frenzy and he shoved Esther aside. Another kidnapper standing by, asked Esther, “Which church do you attend?” Esther responded, “The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations”. The man’s next question was about Esther’s pastor. When she told him that her pastor was Prophet T.B. Joshua, the man did not hesitate to show Esther the exit. As Esther took to her heels in the direction of escape from the shadows of death, a young boy attempted to escape at the same time but was quickly seized by the killer kidnappers and dismembered within minutes.

As Esther finished her narration, her sister Deborah took up the story from her end. After she had offered her prayer at home, she suddenly saw Prophet T.B. Joshua in a vision holding Esther’s hand while leading her through a bush path. He handed the young sister into her hands saying, “She has been released”. Indeed, Esther was released and returned home safely to narrate her ordeal through tears of joy. The two sisters and their father thanked God for the protection they were under in God’s hands. Esther also advised people all over the world to believe in the anointing in the Morning Water and minister it in faith, in Jesus’ name.

AN UNEMPLOYED GRADUATE ON THE WORLD STAGE

She had come under relentless spiritual attacks and was on the brink of losing out in the battle of survival.  Ms Brigitte Graciella Afoumbom from Cameroon needed to get back on her feet and was desperately seeking the prospects of a promising future. As a result of the evil attack, the graduate of Electrical Engineering had been forced to leave her job and remained jobless for an exasperating six years. At the end of that time, she was introduced to The SCOAN through Emmanuel TV. In 2010 she had the opportunity to visit and receive prayer and deliverance through Prophet T.B. Joshua who personally declared that she was free. Uplifted, she returned to her country with strengthened faith and the Morning Water.3

In a dream one night, Prophet T.B. Joshua appeared to her, informing her that there was a hole in her head. He placed his hands on her head and shook it, after which he told her that she was free from all her troubles. Upon waking up, she realized that she was free indeed and suddenly saw a bright future in front of her. Disconnected from failure and energized by Christ, Ms Afoumbom set out for an exam on Computer Network Security and passed with a very high score. She then sat for a job interview and was selected as the best candidate. She was eventually employed as a Data Network Security Engineer by one of the biggest firms in her country.

As she stayed connected to Christ through His Word, by His Spirit, she was inspired by the Holy Spirit to improve her knowledge and so, in 2015, she registered for a course which required at least ten years of practice and one year of preparation. Saddled with the herculean requirements of that course, she prayed earnestly and ministered the Morning Water, asking God to see her through the journey. In two months time, she was ready for the six-hour long exam. Ministering the Morning Water, she cried to God for His favour and when the results of the professional exam were released, she had passed in one sitting.

With a new certificate and new professional status, Ms Afoumbom began looking for a job that matched her new level. She continued to pray and minister the Morning Water as she set her sights on the World Bank. Once miraculously securing an appointment for an interview, she used her Faith Bracelet to count her faith as she was questioned and also put away offence from her heart, forgiving a colleague who had once hurt her at work. To the glory of God, she was granted employment and was remarkably posted to the World Bank headquarters in Washington DC to serve as an Information Security Officer. “The words of Prophet T.B. Joshua are powerful and effective,” she told congregants as she testified to the great things God had done in her life.

BEDWETTING: A MOTHER’S SHAME LIFTED

Thoughts of suicide plagued Mrs Anthonia Nnenna Nwabiakam as she continued to battle with decades of bedwetting, a spiritual husband, financial hardship and marital problems. Thoughts of hopelessness and helplessness kept rearing their ugly heads and made her entire life utterly miserable. Mrs Nwabiakam would never have considered coming to The SCOAN but for her mother’s recent revival from a near-death state through the ministration of the Morning Water. Always under the impression that the miracles at the Arena of Liberty were fake, her view began to change as suddenly as her mother’s ill-health did.1

During the penultimate Monday’s service, Mrs Nwabiakam hesitantly attended and was astonished when she came under the influence of the Holy Spirit at the Prayer Line. The spiritual husband tried to force her out of the presence of God at several points but the anointing would not give her breathing space. As the prayer continued, the evil spirit could not stand the firepower of the Holy Spirit and was cast out of her life forever.

In the presence of her sister and daughter, she testified that since her deliverance, all negative experiences in her life have stopped. She now sleeps freely and is filled with joy and inner peace. Thanking God for lifting a heavy burden out of her life, she advised people all over the world to stop listening to those who would discourage them from coming to Jesus for their deliverance.

FRUIT OF THE WOMB PACKAGED AND DELIVERED FROM HEAVEN

Years of trying to have a child left a frustrated and disappointed marriage in its wake. No doctor or specialist could pinpoint the cause of Mrs Natasha’s fruitlessness. Devastated, the young wife turned to Emmanuel TV and began to pray along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. One fateful day, Mrs Natasha complained to her doctor that she felt sick and after an ultrasound, was told that she was pregnant! Ecstatic, Mrs Natasha began to rejoice only to be silenced by the doctor’s follow up statement: there was a serious problem and the removal of the pregnancy along with one of her fallopian tubes was suggested and highly recommended.1

Weeping, Mrs Natasha left the doctor’s office and turned immediately to the counsel of her uncle. This was the same uncle who had previously introduced her to Emmanuel TV. After narrating her experience to him, he reminded her that distance was not a barrier for the move of the Holy Spirit. With his encouragement, she turned away from despair to Jesus Christ. At his suggestion, she placed her picture on the screen of Emmanuel TV as Prophet T.B. Joshua was praying and allowed Jesus do the rest. After prayer, she returned to the hospital and requested the doctor to check her pregnancy again. To the glory of God, the doctor cancelled his earlier prognosis and confirmed her pregnancy was perfectly healthy.

At the time of delivery, the doctor again recommended an operation as her cervix was too small. Once again, she called her uncle who asked her to pray along with the man of God on Emmanuel TV through the phone. In the end, she was delivered of a beautiful, bouncing baby girl. For the Haitian nationals living in Canada, it was Christ’s victory over the plans of the devil. Thanking God for the miracle, Natasha who recounted the embarrassment she faced as a childless woman had the following advice for people all over the world: “Wait on God; just believe and receive it”.
