Last Sunday service was another demonstration of God’s deep love for His people as the man of God Prophet T.B. Joshua ministered to the congregation at The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria. The auditorium was charged with the power of the Holy Spirit and what followed were wonders and miracles that are possible only with God.
The man of God said, “My job is my God” and further explained that we will live right not because we have money but because we have peace and tranquility. What are you doing that gives hope to the hopeless, love to the hated, joy to the sad, blessing to the poor, healing to the sick? What are you doing to transform people, to change lives, nations and the world? That is the job the man of God was talking about. Express God in your job. Your job should be your God. We do not see our job as our God that is why we are facing so many challenges today. Every professional career, you can use to transform the lives of others. If you see your job as your God, you will not go where God is not welcomed, where God will not be entertained.
“My job is my God because that is what God will judge me on the last day. What comes from God goes to God.” – Prophet T.B. Joshua
The manifestation of God’s authority was equally evident during the Prayer Line where Prophet T.B. Joshua ministered to people who had come from all over the world, setting them free from various afflictions, in the name of Jesus Christ. Those with sicknesses received their healing while those under the yoke of demons were delivered at the mention of the name, Jesus! The man of God also prophesied to the congregation, revealing hidden fundamental facts responsible for their unpleasant conditions of life thereby uprooting whatever is not of God in their lives.
Earlier during the service, Wise Man Harry preached on the need to maintain a Godly character and living by the Word of God because ‘on the last day man will be judged not by the colour of their skin, nor by one’s handsomeness or speaking skills but by the content of one’s character’. He drew his proof text from Romans 5:1-5.
He emphasised that ‘Christians must reflect on their lives and ask how the Holy Spirit, given to them by God, has affected their lives.’ He cited love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control and humility as some of the good characteristics of a true Christian.
The service was not without testimonies that glorified the mighty name of God. Many people came to share their experiences on what God had done for them in their lives. Here are but a selected few.
RIVERS OF BLESSINGS BRING HEALTH, FINANCIAL RESTORATION
Never a problem Jesus cannot solve, however big and insurmountable it may look to the natural eye. Mr Nicodemus Obuya, a Kenyan living in the United States of America (USA) exemplified this. God has turned what appeared to be impossibility in his life to a real possibility and he came to The SCOAN to glorify God for that. Mr Obuya was having many financial problems in his life. He was facing the reality of having to file for bankruptcy and was in danger of losing his home and everything he owned. Things were so bad that he was tempted to blame his wife for their deplorable conditions.
One day, in search of a word of comfort, he started to browse the internet for religious channels. He saw some videos on YouTube where Prophet T.B. Joshua was praying for people and his hope was rekindled when he listened to testimonies of breakthroughs and restorations. He took this as a habit and would always watch the man of God on the internet and pray with him. One night, he had a dream. He saw that The SCOAN was a big pool of water where many filthy people came to be cleansed of their dirt. He also saw himself being cleansed by the water in the pool. He made up his mind and told his wife that their solution was God. He left everything in the United States and travelled to The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria where he received the Anointing Water and the Anointing Sticker.
Upon his return to the USA, he prayed and ministered the Anointing Water on all his bank documents and prayed that his home would not be taken away from him. He ministered more Anointing Water in his office in the mighty name of Jesus Christ and pasted the Anointing Sticker on the main entrance of his house. God heard his prayer and His answer was instant. The bank softened its conditions on his property. Mr Obuya was given lower interest rates based on a proposal he had submitted to the bank following the ministration of the Anointing Water. His lawyer was surprised that such a strict bank could respond so positively. His business took off and he was able to settle all his bank debts and he never declared bankruptcy. God’s blessings continued to flow on his household to the extent that he is at the point of completing a one storey house in Kenya which he and his father had failed to complete in two years because they lacked money.
He also testified how his wife was miraculously healed from a serious health problem. She had a hole in her heart and had to be rushed to the hospital many times without a lasting solution. Together, they prayed and ministered the Anointing Water on her, in Jesus’ name and within a short period of time, she gained her strength and her heart problem was cured. Mr Obuya testified how they are now so blessed that they have started a ministry to take care of the widows and orphans back in Kenya to appreciate what God has done for them. Thank You, Jesus Christ!
JESUS FLUSHES OUT SWALLOWED COIN
Mrs Patience from Ghana had all the valid reason to smile and shed a tear of joy when she stepped up to testify on Sunday. She explained how she had dropped her children at school one day and shortly after dropping them off, she received a phone call from the school, saying that she should rush back to see her son as he had swallowed a coin and could hardly breathe. They rushed him to the hospital and the doctor said that the coin was stuck in the throat. The doctors wanted to use a medical machine to force the coin out of his throat but when they took another x-ray, they noted that the coin had descended further from his throat to his chest. She was terrified! The doctor said that they should give it a few days and see whether her son would excrete it out with stools. After a few days of restlessness and agony, the coin had not come out as they had hoped. She took her son back to the doctor to take another x-ray. To her horror, the coin had moved into her son’s abdomen and was stuck! The doctors said that they had to operate the boy because the coin was stuck and would not move anymore. She refused the operation, believing that God would work a miracle in her son’s life. One day, as they watched Emmanuel TV and when Prophet T.B. Joshua was praying for the viewers, she instructed her son to place his tummy on the screen of the television and pray along with the man of God. Immediately after the prayer, her son complained that there was an unusual movement in his stomach and that he needed to go to the toilet. She provided him with a bucket to defecate in. To their astonishment, her son defecated out the coin that had required an operation to remove. She showed the boy’s x-rays of how the coin was stuck in his system as well as the same coin that was defecated. Said the boy when asked about his experience: “All the pain is gone, the coin came out after I prayed with T.B. Joshua as instructed by my mother”. What a wonderful God we serve!
STOLEN TRUCK AND GOODS RECOVERED
Mr Izuchukwu testified how the Almighty God recovered his truck and goods estimated at 47 million naira. He had hired the truck to ferry clients’ goods when it suddenly disappeared off the surface of the earth. Neither the driver nor the truck could not be traced. It later transpired that the owner of the truck had conspired with the driver to divert and steal the goods in it. He was panic stricken and at that point, he remembered his Anointing Water. He prayed and ministered it, in Jesus’ name, asking ‘the God of T.B. Joshua to intervene for him’. That night, when he went to sleep, he had a dream: he saw Prophet T.B. Joshua telling him that he should not worry and that he would testify. When he woke up in the morning, he saw that he had many missed calls on his phone. He returned the call, and behold, it was from the authorities who told him that they had found the vehicle and the goods in a bush. When he went to inspect his lost-but-found truck in the bush where it had been abandoned, he discovered that the thieves had changed the colour of the container from blue to white. He reclaimed the container and the goods were delivered to the client. Glory to God!
I CAN HEAR YOUR FOOTSTEPS WITHOUT MY HEARING AIDS
Mrs De Goeiji came all the way from Holland to The SCOAN with the problem of severe loss of hearing. She could not hear anything without the use of hearing aids. She was placed at the prayer line where Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her in the power of the Holy Spirit. Instantly, she could hear everything loud and clear without using her hearing aids! Mrs De Goeiji testified with her brother live in the service of her miraculous healing last Sunday and how she can now even hear people’s footsteps. She told the congregation, “If Jesus can do this for me, He can do it for you”.
The SCOAN Sunday service, broadcast live on Emmanuel TV, ended with a powerful Mass Prayer ministered in the name of Jesus Christ by the Wise Men where captives were set free, chains were loosed and bondages were broken, to the glory to God!
