Sunday, March 1, 2015 was another inspiring day at The SCOAN. The church service, as usual, witnessed a huge attendance of people from all walks of life and from different states and countries – all in search of God’s divine direction. They all came with their minds and hearts full of expectations; they know and believe that in His presence, there are deliverance and a great outpouring of grace, favour and love.
The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, took the congregation through symbolic Biblical truths concerning man’s relationship and walk with God. He stated that some of the fancies of the world are not truly those that make life worth living: “We need something more than money. The lame man was eagerly expecting a gift from Peter and John but they said to him, “We don’t have money for you. What we have makes money insufficient”. According to the man of God, what we need as Christians is more precious than money: “What you need now is more than money. Money cannot remove depression. The rich are the ones under depression today more than the poor. Money cannot remove pressure or tension. What we need is in the name Jesus. When we know we need more than money, the eagerness of getting money in whatever you do, will not be there, but good name. A good name will give you peace, comfort but today eagerness to get huge money, profit leads us to cheat our fellow brother, misappropriation, corruption. We need more than money. Getting money cannot give you what you need. Rather, it invites more trouble”.
Speaking further, the man of God analysed the life of the true Christian and the inevitability of attacks at some point in time: “Attack is to encourage you to move closer to God. Your attitude towards the attack will determine how soon you will receive the blessing. If you are sluggish towards the attack, trying to avoid the attack, dodge the attack, manipulate the whole system, the breakthrough will manipulate you and avoid you. No man at the beginning of his journey remains stable. Everyone goes down-up. At a certain time, he will remain stable. That is the life of everyone of us. Down means hardship, sickness, name calling, etc. they will put you in prison and then release you again. They will call you names and then call you good names as time goes on. Many when things are down commit suicide”.
Concluding, Prophet T.B. Joshua led the congregation in Mass Prayer, taking authority in the mighty name of Jesus to bind demons, loose those in bondage, set captives free, minister healing and deliverance and prophesy breakthrough in the lives of many: “Right now, I have the right to the authority of Jesus. Take the authority of the Father. You have a right as a Christian to that authority. Begin to command every situation to move, every sickness and disease. Open your lips and begin to move that mountain by the authority given to you. Move that cancer, sickness, diabetes, hypertension, kidney problem, liver problem”
The following testimonies show that we have a God who is always willing and ready to wipe our tears if only we can have faith and work in accordance with His will. May the mighty hand of God touch you now, no matter your situation, in Jesus’ name!
MULTIPLE ENTRY VISA SECURED THROUGH MORNING WATER MINISTRATION
Mr. Kelvin Edotimi, a Project Manager was at the SCOAN prayer service last year November and received a prophetic declaration from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, urging the congregation to meditate on the Word of God. Personally inspired by that prophetic Word, Mr. Kelvin keyed into it and began to meditate on that Word with passionate commitment even though he did not have a faith bracelet. By December of that year, he had an encounter with the man of God in his dream. In what seemed like a deliverance service in the dream, he had asked the man of God why it was that the world is enmeshed in so much pain and agony with people suffering all over the world. He also tried to find out from the man of God what mankind had done to deserve their unfortunate fate. The man of God revealed to him that those who are suffering have departed and deviated from God’s divine will and purpose. Not satisfied, he went further to ask the man of God about his own case: why he was passing through some challenges. The man of God told him that whatever he is facing is but for a while; a short experience that would prepare him for a very bright future.
After he woke from the dream-laden sleep, he realised that he had been nonchalant about an important professional opportunity that had been waiting for him at his work place, where he is a member of the Board of Directors. A training opportunity overseas had been there all the while but for reasons he could not explain, he was just not interested. But after that encounter with the man of God in the dream, his passion and zeal for the opportunity became unusually ignited. Moved by the promising prospects unleashed by his encounter with undiluted anointing, he applied for the visa to enable him travel to the United States where the leadership course is to take place.
On the day of his interview at the U.S. Embassy, he had ministered the Morning Water and prayed for God’s favour. On getting there, he was delayed when one of the security men found a bottle of the Morning Water in his pocket. However, he had another weapon to pull his way through; He recalled that the man of God had also made another prophetic declaration that “The way out for me has come. Jesus Christ is the way out”. He kept meditating on that prophetic declaration until he eventually found his way. His interviewer did not waste much time with him. After few questions, he was asked to come back in three days to collect his visa. To the glory of God, he was granted a two-year multiple entry visa. Testifying to God’s goodness, he advised Christians to see their challenges as temporary just as he was told by the man of God in his dream. He also described the Morning Water as the blood of Jesus for the healing of our infirmities.
DOUBLE DIVINE VISITATION AFTER PRAYER FROM PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA
Mr. Christian Otero, a Puerto Rican national was a Supervisor with a telecommunications company, Claro. For three years, he worked without promotion. At a time, one of his superiors even gave a bad evaluation about him.
Poised to turn things around, he headed to The SCOAN, where the man of God prayed for him and his family. After the prayer by the man of God, the same superior who gave a bad evaluation about him, promoted him to the position of Manager with a ten thousand dollars pay rise. To God be the glory, his wife who eventually gave birth to a bouncing baby boy named David, after they had been searching for a baby for twelve years. This is double divine visitation!
YOKE OF BARRENNESS BROKEN THROUGH PROPHETIC DELIVERANCE
She had been told by her frustrated husband never to come back to their matrimonial home without being delivered by the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. The bone of contention had been her inability to get pregnant and bear children, the joy of every marriage. In her desperation, Mrs. Omoh came to The SCOAN hoping that God would touch her through the man of God. True to her expectation, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied to her and told her exactly what had transpired between her and her husband. The man of God went further to tell her that she was going to have a baby girl. In confirmation of Prophet T.B Joshua’s prophecy, she gave birth to a baby girl. Testifying to God’s wonderful work in her life, she and her husband brought along their baby named Emmanuela. They urged Christians to believe in the Word of God as it is capable of transforming their lives positively.
DOUBLE PORTION OF HEALING VIA EMMANUEL TV
Before 2012, Mr. Joseph Mumuni, a Ghanaian, was a jolly good fellow who radiated so much zest and energy and was bubbling with life. In 2012, his health began to deteriorate; severe fatigue, chest pains and general debility became his lot. Trying to get to the root of the problem, he went for diagnosis and was told by doctors that he suffered from severe heart attack, news that put his entire existence on the precipice of doom. In his travails, he had resigned to fate, only searching for a living church to fellowship with before he bids goodbye to mother earth. But he was wrong – Jesus had greater plan for him.
Somehow, he got attracted to Emmanuel TV and had it installed in his house. One day, while watching Emmanuel TV, he was impressed with the charitable works of Prophet T.B. Joshua. He subsequently joined the man of God in prayer via Emmanuel TV. Even though he was weak, he believed he was strong and mustered enough stamina to declare his healing. True to his confessions, a new energy came over him even as he felt something leave his body. To God be the glory, Mr. Mumuni regained his health through faith. In the same manner, he also got healed of lumbar spondylosis through prayers with the man of God via Emmanuel TV and the ministration of Anointing Water. He proudly displayed his medical reports of before and after his healing, encouraging all those watching to put their trust in God.
U.S. VISA SECURED THROUGH MORNING WATER MINISTRATION
Like a serial failure, Mr. Ignatius Kabiawu had been unable to secure entry visa to foreign climes since 2003. Even when he had genuine reasons to travel, securing the visa became a mirage. On five good occasions, his desire to fly out of the country hit the brick walls and left him in a state of humiliating disappointment. But he got connected to Emmanuel TV and soon developed interest in the Godly disposition and inimitable wonders that he watches on the channel. Encouraged by his brother, he decided to revisit the travel issue believing that this year, 2015 would not pass him by. He applied for the US visa and ministered the Morning Water in preparation for the interview. To God be the glory, after the interview, he was granted a two-year visa. He thanked God for His wonderful works through the Morning Water medium and urged all to seek God’s direction in every situation.
GRADUATION RECLAIMED THROUGH EMMANUEL TV
Mrs. Florence Edicco, a head teacher in a Ghanaian basic school had since 2012, enrolled into a Master’s programme in a bid to further her education. But things went wrong along the line. Computing her examination marks became a serious issue as most of her lecturers could not find her scores. She was even asked to re-sit some papers, an effort that was later discovered to be unnecessary. But somehow, she could not find a solution to the problem.
She summoned faith and decided to start praying along with the man of God via Emmanuel TV. All her family members joined her in prayer as they would always stretch their hands to the TV screen praying with Prophet T.B. Joshua. To God be the glory, in 2014, she was called to come for her graduation. Testifying to this miracle along with a copy of her certificate, she thanked God for intervening in her case and urged Christians to hold on to their faith and wait for God’s time.
DISTANCE IS NOT A BARRIER AND THERE IS NEVER A SITUATION JESUS CANNOT HANDLE. ALL HE NEEDS IS YOUR FAITH TO PUT A DEMAND ON THE ANOINTING.
