The Sunday service began with prayer and visitors from far and wide received a touch from the Five Wise Men that rewrote the history of their lives. Immediately after the Prayer Line session, the church began to listen to testimonies of extraordinary breakthroughs resulting from the ministration of the New Anointing Water and Stickers, to the glory of God.
ONCE I WAS BLIND, BUT NOW I CAN SEE
Mrs Naomi Kiloko was experiencing blindness for one year. What started as mere irritation of the eyes soon worsened to the point where her eyes became grossly swollen and she lost all vision. Medical doctors were unable to explain the sudden deterioration of her vision and discharged her from hospital offering no hope of solution.Mrs Kiloko would spend the entirety of her days alone, lying down on her bed in utter darkness and desolation.
It was in this condition that an extended family relative who was privileged to have visited The SCOAN and received the new Anointing Water came to see her. Using her hands to prise open the severely swollen eyelids, she ministered the New Anointing Water in Jesus’ name.
To the astonishment of all witnesses, a physical sound erupted as if a cork was unscrewed from a bottle! At that Divine moment, Mrs Kiloko’s sigh was restored! Blindness had been swallowed up in victory! Jumping up and proclaiming her ability to see, she astounded her family members by picking up a Bible and beginning to read. Several days later, all the swelling had disappeared and her vision was back to normalcy!
CRASHED BUT NOT CRUSHED
Mr James Asemota, a lorry driver, was driving along a highway when the brakes of his lorry failed. Veering out of control, the lorry hit an oncoming boulder and somersaulted into a ditch, ending up preciously perched on its side. He and his three passengers were trapped in the fallen lorry with the prospect of a fire erupting very imminent. As Mr James uttered a prayer for Divine protection, an extraordinary scene unfolded before his dazed eyes. He saw a giant man wearing a white robe and holding a sword emerge from the Anointing Sticker from The SCOAN that he had placed on the windscreen of his lorry. The tall man flashed the sword across the windscreen of the lorry. Instantly, the glass of the windscreen collapsed! He and his boys were able to come out through the collapsed windscreen safely. Remarkably, none of them recorded a single injury or bruise from the terrible accident. As Prophet T.B. Joshua says, “When the eyes of your faith are opened, you will know the protection that you are under.”
DELIVERED FROM ALCOHOLIC ADDICTION OF 25 YEARS
Mr Sunday Eghele, Edo, Nigeria, had been addicted to drinking alcohol for 25 years. The habit had adversely affected his marital life to the point that his wife threatened a divorce. He was unable to perform his normal duties. His wife who had earlier collected the Anointing Water from The SCOAN, ministered it to Mr Eghele and he immediately started manifesting in a strange manner. He had a dream where he wrestled with some strange beings that came to take away their children. He was able to overcome them by shouting out the name of Jesus Christ. In another vision that followed, he saw a giant man come out of his body and leave. He called his wife to bring the Anointing Water and as soon as he ministered it to himself in Jesus’ name, the giant man ran away. The following morning he woke up and went about his day alcohol free forgetting about the beers stored up in his refrigerator. He has since been free from the habit of consuming alcohol. The regular supplier of beer to the man saw the wife and asked her why the husband had not come for his usual drinks and she told the woman that her husband does not drink alcohol anymore. Indeed, he is free.
LECTURER NO LONGER USES GLASSES
Mrs Joy Nnaji, a Lecturer of Political Science, College of Science & Technology, Anambra, Nigeria, had a severe eye problem and was booked for an operation. Doctors had diagnosed cataracts and she had been using glasses for five years. The pain and discomfort she experienced continued to worsen as time progressed. She couldn’t do anything without wearing glasses, proving increasingly burdensome to her responsibilities as a lecturer.
As an avid viewer of Emmanuel TV, when Mrs Nnaji heard about the new Anointing Water, she believed that solution to her deteriorating condition had finally come. Priviliged to be among the few who received the New Anointing Water upon its release, she ministered it upon her affected eyes and slept. The next morning, she got up and noticed some mucous coming out from her eyes. She cleaned up and went to work as usual. To her surprise, she was able to read the scripts that were brought to her by her numerous students without using her glasses. Ever since the ministration of the new Anointing Water, the lecturer has stopped wearing glasses and all the accompanying aches and pains of the cataracts have completely gone. Thank You, Jesus Christ!
KIDNEY STONES MIRACULOUSLY HEALED
Mr Okocha Ifechukwude who works at the College of Medicine at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital had a problem of kidney stones which subjected him to bouts of trauma for twelve months. He explored all medical possibilities in order to cure his ailment but to no avail. His mother also took him to native doctors who were unable to help him out of the problem. He was then encouraged by his sister to visit The SCOAN where he collected the new Anointing Water and ministered it to himself believing God for a sure cure. To his amazement he noticed that he no longer felt the symptoms associated with the kidney stones. To confirm his healing, he returned to the Teaching Hospital for another scan. The University Teaching Hospital ran various tests on him and all indicated that he no longer had kidney stones. He confessed that he used to have a negative perception of The SCOAN and it was difficult for him to come to the church for prayer except for the severity of his disease and the fact that all other avenues had failed him. Indeed, God can use foolish things like sickness to draw us close to Him.
POSSESS YOUR POSSESSIONS
Miss Mhloti had been working as Admin Officer without promotion in her job. Her colleagues including his juniors were being promoted in due time. She visited many prayer houses in South Africa in search of solution to her problem but did not get promoted. On the day the New Anointing Water was launched by the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, a friend called her from The SCOAN and told her what was happening at The SCOAN and asked her to tune in to the Emmanuel TV. When she tuned in, she saw the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua praying for the masses and she placed her hands on the screen of her television and prayed along with the Prophet claiming to possess her possessions. The next morning, she went to her office and a letter of promotion was given to her appointing her as Senior Provisioning Administrative Officer; Budgeting and Planning.
FIBROID COMES OUT WITHOUT OPERATION
Miss Evarister Ezeh came to The SCOAN with an issue of multiple fibroids for three years. Her stomach was as big as that of a three month pregnancy, being both hard and painful to touch. Doctors said the only solution was for her to be operated upon. She declined having the operation believing that God could heal her through the medium of the Anointing Water. During the period of the affliction, she lost her job and her official car because she could no longer perform effectively in her work place. A man who had received the Anointing Water from The SCOAN shared a little and she ministered it in Jesus’ name. That night, she saw the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua in her dream and he prayed for her. She woke up from the dream and felt something running down her legs. When she went to the bathroom and realized it was the fibroid that was coming out. She experienced a period of continuous bleeding with pieces of fibroid coming out. Now, she is healed and fibroid free – to God be the glory.
CULT LEADER AND DRUG DEALER DELIVERED IN JESUS’ NAME
Mr Oluwaseyi, a Nigerian living in South Africa was a cult gang leader and a notorious drug dealer. While attending university, he was initiated into cultism and soon rose through the ranks to become the cult’s leader. His lust for power led him to visit spiritualists and witchdoctors to procure charms for protection against attack from rival cultists which is a regular occurrence on campuses. At one time he had a face-to-face battle with some competing gang members where he was shot at but the bullet could not penetrate his body. After the running battle, he was declared wanted by the Police and run away from the university. He came back to Nigeria to hide but when he noticed that the arms of the law were still trailing him, he returned to South Africa. His girlfriend who was an Emmanuel TV addict tried to introduce the channel to him but he would rather paint a discouraging picture of the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua telling the girl that he is from Nigeria and that he knows that the Prophet was dubious and uses charms to perform the so-called miracles.
During these periods, he was often afflicted by a spiritual wife that used to make love to him in his dream. Things always turned rough whenever that spiritual wife met with him. At a point in time, his girlfriend visited The SCOAN and returned to South Africa with the Anointing Water. When he saw the Anointing Water, he ministered it into his mouth without any expectations as to what would happen. A few days later, some security personnel came to raid their house and arrested all the occupants including their house girl for drug peddling. His boss, who was a renowned drug baron, was arrested but he was inexplicably pushed aside by the security operatives. It became clear to him that such a narrow escape could not have been possible and he was able to link it with the Anointing Water he had inadvertently ministered to himself.
He then developed interest in viewing Emmanuel TV and decided to visit The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria to seek for deliverance. As the Wise Man prayed for him, the evil spirit within Mr Oluwaseyi violently manifested and he was finally delivered and declared free, in Jesus’ name. Since his deliverance, his life has radically transformed! He testified that he is enjoying peace of mind for the first time in his life and all lust for drugs and women had completely vanished. He advised young people to be careful about the friends they keep as it was the company of bad friends at university that influenced him to join the cult. He further advised parents to be mindful of the gifts and clothes they buy for their children, noting that cultists in school usually look for those who are flashily and flamboyantly dressed as targets for potential recruitment into the cults. Thank You, Jesus Christ!
PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA’S 50TH BIRTHDAY ADVICE
Prophet T.B. Joshua briefly commenting on his forthcoming 50th birthday anniversary which falls on June 12, 2013, advocated that the best way to celebrate his birthday is for the people to pray for unity and love for the church of God. He says that we lack the strongest bond of love which is the backbone of unity that can only come by relationship. He also advised people to use their quality time to visit the sick in hospital, orphans and be a father to the fatherless and benefactor to the needy by extending scholarship schemes to the less privileged ones. He concluded that the best way to celebrate the birthday is by embracing these members of society, adding that it is an opportunity for soul-winning. He strongly advocated that people should rededicate their lives through acts of giving for a true transformation. He also reminded us that there is no one like you and there will never be anyone like you therefore, we should be imitators of God not man in the way we do things and that we should allow the Spirit of God to suggest to us that is when we will be ones with a difference.
AN EYE OPENING HEALING!
Susan Asuquo a worker with the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) was diagnosed with kidney failure. In addition, the family was facing serious financial problems. She tried to go into petty trading which could not do well and she eventually went into politics but lost all her money. She was experiencing severe waist pain and went to the hospital for a checkup only to find that her kidney was not functioning properly. Her husband said to her, “Why don’t you go to T.B. Joshua?” She rejected the idea because of the rumours she had heard about The SCOAN and the repercussions there may be for her work in the church. Her husband kept encouraging her and eventually she decided to watch Emmanuel TV and saw for herself that T.B. Joshua is a man of God.Soon after she met a grieving lady who said that her husband had died of kidney failure. She began to cry and the lady thought she was sympathizing with her situation but rather she had come to understand the reality of her own situation and imagined what would become of her husband and their three children if she died from this disease. With no job or any other means of supporting the family, the couple finally decided to come to The SCOAN. They were privileged to receive the new Anointing Water. That night in the hotel room, she ministered the Anointing Water to herself. That whole night, she felt as if her body was being cleansed and reinvigorated.
When she got back to her State she went to the doctors that had formally diagnosed her with kidney failure and they ran some tests which revealed that indeed she had a brand new kidney. The astonished doctor asked her whether she had attended The SCOAN upon seeing the remarkable transformation! Her advice to others is to not be deterred by others or listen to false rumours that could stop them from doing what God puts in their heart to do.
EMPLOYMENT WITH NO STRINGS ATTACHED
During last Sunday’s service, Prophet T.B. Joshua made an appeal to entrepreneurs and institutions to create job vacancies for at least ten graduates. To this end, a call was made for qualified graduates in the field of education to make themselves available for placement. The response was instant and overwhelming. Eventually, a total of twenty-four candidates from diverse backgrounds and various churches were successfully selected given job placements in a federal establishment. Today their situation has turned around and they are now working class graduates. Prophet T.B. Joshua used the occasion to stress that our membership in our local church is merely symbolic as the essence of the true church is Christ in us, the hope of glory. He called on the body of Christ to unite as one!
