The glory of God was an evident illumination that radiated and glowed on the multitudes that congregated at The SCOAN last Sunday and, in His infinite mercy, brought salvation, healing, blessings, breakthrough and deliverance. Engaging the worshippers who had come from all over the world, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua tasked all to be good citizens, saying, “Good Christians make good citizens for that which makes us good Christians such as – do not lie, do not kill, do not steal, also makes us good citizens.”
He encouraged all to honour the laws of their countries, saying, “Be proud of your country and God will be proud of you.” The Prophet then ministered prophetic messages to individuals in the congregation and every chain satan had used to connect them to himself began to break, in Jesus’ name.
Moving to The SCOAN Prayer Line, he ministered prayer in the power of the Holy Spirit and those whose bodies were burdened with sickness and disease received healing. The lame walked out of wheelchairs and discarded their crutches and walking sticks while the possessed were set free from the evil spirits that held them captive. Those who once felt far from God were made near through God’s Word and by His Spirit. The Anointing Water was then ministered to everyone in the congregation. Truly, this was the day the Lord had made for His people to rejoice and be made glad in it.
Earlier, the congregants received an inspiring message from Wise Man Racine, encouraging all to be forward lookers in a message titled: Be Forward Lookers. He said each time we try to move forward, satan is there to remind us of our unworthy past in an attempt to provoke our guilt and tarnish our future. To be forward thinkers, he said, is to follow the condition God lays down as it says in Isaiah 43:18-19. “No one is too good or too bad to qualify for the grace of God. Therefore, stop thinking and talking on the level of your old life. Jesus never considers your past to determine your future. He accepts anyone who comes to Him in faith, even those who previously rejected Him, those who previously sinned against Him. Don’t look back. Look forward to Christ Jesus,” he admonished.
Testimonies poured forth from those who had come to appreciate God for His goodness in their lives through the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua and various mediums such as the New Anointing Water and the Faith Bracelet. Here are some selected testimonies:
OVARIAN CANCER OBLITERATED!
When Mrs Lieza Ayom from South Sudan was diagnosed with fibroid, she became depressed but the real devastating news was yet to come. She was found to have ovarian cancer and a combination of the two was a painful and cumbersome burden for the Australia-based woman. She could not walk and had no strength for her to live a normal life. She was in constant pain and soon became a common face at various hospitals. At one point, she bled continuously for three weeks and was put on chemotherapy.
As her condition deteriorated, doctors operated on her and removed her uterus while trying to rid her of the cancer but all yielded nothing. When her cousin heard of her predicament, he was shocked and rushed to The SCOAN, believing there is no sickness our Lord, Jesus Christ cannot cure. He received the Anointing Water and sent it to her in Australia. By this time, her whole body had started to close down. Soon after she started ministering in the name of Jesus Christ, everything that had to do with her health began to recover. The doctors had earlier told her that if she would recover it would take at least two years but within the period of two months she was restored back to her original condition, in good, perfect health. She boldly displayed her medical reports of her health status before and after ministering the Anointing Water. The report after administering the Anointing Water showed there is no more evidence of cancer in her body.
RESCUED FROM AN OPERATION
Mrs Acha Juliet Atuh had delivered her first child through an operation and was booked to deliver the second child the same way. Doctors said if she was to deliver naturally, the baby would rupture the uterus and she would bleed to death and the baby too, would die. When she insisted, the doctor told her that if she wanted to go through natural delivery, she would have to sign a document stating that if she died in the course of the natural childbirth, the doctor and hospital would not be held responsible. Faced with such a dilemma, she wasted no time but flew immediately to Nigeria to attend The SCOAN. The night before the service, she saw Prophet T.B. Joshua in her dream, praying for her and she fell down under the power of the Holy Spirit. When she woke up, she ran to the church where she was arranged on the prayer line. With her faith strengthened, she returned home and continued to pray over her pregnancy with the Anointing Stickers. The next morning, she felt signs of labor and went straight to the hospital. Three doctors gathered around her, preparing for the worst but were shocked when the baby miraculously came out naturally with no complications! It could not be understood by the doctors because it was beyond their knowledge and imagination. Jesus is real!
TESTIMONY IS MY NAME
For four years, Mr and Mrs Joseph had been facing barrenness. Each time his wife became pregnant, she would miscarry.
Making matters worse, one pregnancy turned out to be ectopic and she had to go through an operation for the baby to be removed. After this, the couple decided to come to The SCOAN for solution. They were placed on The SCOAN prayer line and received deliverance in Jesus’ name. Shortly after that, to the glory of God, Mrs Joseph became pregnant for her husband. To secure the pregnancy in the name of Jesus and the fire of the Holy Ghost, they decided to minister the Anointing Water throughout the pregnancy. To their great joy, the baby survived and Mrs Joseph gave birth safely to a bouncing a baby girl! To give glory to God for turning their test into a testimony, they named their beautiful little girl, Testimony!
OVARIAN CYST FLUSHED OUT
From Cameroon, Miss Mbong Claudine had been experiencing pain in her stomach for over a year. It was so severe that she could not sleep or rest. At the hospital, she went through a medical examination which revealed that she had an ovarian cyst.
The doctor told her that she was very young to have a cyst and advised her to seek her parents’ permission for an emergency operation to remove it. She told the doctor that she was a viewer of Emmanuel TV and would not accept that diagnosis. She left the hospital and showed the results to her mother. The mother, who was not a viewer of Emmanuel TV and did not believe, told her not to waste time but to go for the operation. She instead took the situation as an opportunity to demonstrate to her mother the power of the living God. She had the Anointing Water and prayed, asking God to give her a testimony. She sprayed the Anointing Water in her mouth and on her stomach and that night she slept like a baby. In the morning her mother commented on her peaceful sleep. She told her that it was as a result of the Anointing Water and told her she was healed. To prove her healing to her doubtful mother, she returned to the hospital for another test. The test revealed that the young woman, who was told her situation, was too severe and needed urgent operation, was now perfectly free of any ovarian cyst!
US VISA IN TWO MINUTES!
Mr Gbenga Awodokun had been attending school in the UK but needed to change and move to the US. However, every time he applied for the visa, he was denied. After complaining to his mother, she collected the Anointing Water from The SCOAN and sent him. He prayed for God’s mercy and favour, in Jesus’ name. To his joy, he was soon accepted to the University of Cincinnati, College of Engineering and Applied Science. The officers at the University told him that it would be difficult to get the visa from Nigeria but that he should still try. Remembering what God had already done for him, he prayed over his application with the Anointing Water. When he arrived for his visa interview, he observed that each interview lasted no less than 45 minutes. He continued to pray with the Anointing Water and when his turn came, they spent only two minutes with him and issued his US Visa. He came to The SCOAN holding his passport replete with visa and University of Cincinnati papers. He advised viewers to always believe in the name Jesus Christ and not give up when things appear impossible. To God is the glory!
HOW GOD KEPT ME ALIVE AFTER A TERRIBLE ACCIDENT: FAITH BRACELET TESTIMONY
Mrs Consolata Ngimbwa, a chairperson of the Contractors Registration Board in her country, Tanzania is a regular visitor to The SCOAN. During Prophet T.B. Joshua’s 51st Birthday this year she was in attendance and was blessed with a Faith Bracelet. Back in Tanzania, she would use it to meditate on the Word of God.
One day, she and some government officials including the Minister of Works were on an official visit when her car encountered a terrible crash. A car had appeared from nowhere and was trying to overtake a couple of cars including hers not knowing that another vehicle was coming from the opposite direction. In the confusion, her car was hit and it somersaulted three times before it landed heavily, upside down. A crowd of shocked onlookers quickly gathered around the car, believing anyone inside the vehicle would be dead. Praise God, Mrs Ngimbwa, who had been counting her faith prior to the accident, was alive and holding her Faith Bracelet! The rescue services quickly came and pulled her out of the wreckage to the hospital. To their surprise, she was not hurt in any way. She was nevertheless rushed to hospital. As the doctors started to remove her Faith Bracelet to put a drip on her wrist, the Minister of Works who was with her and had seen how God had kept her alive through the evangelical item, warned them off, saying, “You can remove everything including her underwear, but don’t tamper with that [the Faith Bracelet]”. She advised people that once they receive their Faith Bracelet, they should not play with it but use it effectively to meditate on God’s Word in every situation.
The service closed with the ministration of the New Anointing Water to the congregation which also witnessed the presence of the Holy Spirit with diverse manifestations of deliverances and breaking of evil yokes. Stay blessed!
