The Sunday Service on December 7, 2014 at The SCOAN took off on an inspiring note with the choir’s soul-moving deliveries. Like forerunners, their uplifting praise and worship songs prepared the atmosphere for the digestion of the undiluted Word of God. Even the overflows were filled to the brim to cater to the need of those who could not make it to the main gallery to experience God’s consistent and powerful presence at The SCOAN.
The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, spoke on The Relationship between the Truth and the Spirit. Using the Book of John 4:24 and 14: 26 as scriptural references, he urged Christians to imbibe the gift of the Spirit which God Himself sent to them to help them in all their endeavours: “‘But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything…’ – how to sit, stand, greet, look in the name of Jesus”. Speaking further, he admonished them to pay more attention to the Spirit rather than to material things of the world observing that since it is the Spirit that creates the materials, clamouring for the material was mere vanity upon vanity: “Why should we worship materials then? Even you are a material. You are the greatest material, the greatest product. The Word of God is a Spirit, creates material things. Why do you believe that by building cathedral for God you are a child of God? Why should you believe that once you are a president of a nation if you enter a church they should give you the best seat? You are a material. Vanity upon vanity all is vanity”.
Concluding, the man of God urged Christians to keep faith in God and believe that He is reliable: “You have seen God working in the Spirit, you have seen things happening, and you have seen the power of God at work. If you have seen that God is reliable, trust Him; that is faith. I want to pray with you. If there is anyone who is still outside faith in God, I restore your faith; let your faith be restored! Begin to trust God. No one can teach you that trust; it just comes naturally, spontaneously. It is natural; you can’t get it or be taught it”.
Earlier in the service, Evangelist Yinka had blessed the hearts of the congregation and viewers worldwide with a message titled, I Plead Guilty in which she reminded us of the need to approach God in humility and simplicity of heart, knowing that God receives repentant souls.
“When the children of God begin to experience the products of sin in their lives, rather than pointing fingers at their fellow brothers as being the cause of their affliction, they look inward in order to rediscover their route in God. They repent and repair; I mean they amend or change their ways and pray to God for reinstatement. The Bible says God is always ready to reinstate His people, who come to Him in humility and repentance, to their right position in His glory”.
Just as God’s mercies endure forever, the testimonies He has put on the lips of His children continue to increase. The following testimonies are a confirmation of the mighty works of God at The SCOAN. As you read, may God locate you with your own testimonies in Jesus’ name. Amen.
ANOINTING WATER TACKLES TATTOO TROUBLES
The problem that brought Mrs. Favour Amorro from Rivers, Nigeria to The SCOAN was cancer of the arms. When she got married, her problems started when there was no peace in their marriage and Her frustration led her to go clubbing. One day, a friend she met at the club who had tattoos, convinced her to get tattoos as well in the name of fashion. She agreed and had six done. In a dream, she was told that it was not for fashion but rather her initiation into the kingdom of darkness. She found herself going to oceans, eating strange food and was the victim of different attacks and harassments in her dreams affecting her spiritual and physical life. She returned to the tattoo man to have them removed and he used a chemical to scratch the tattoos off her. However, instead of the tattoos to disappear, each of them became a cancerous wound on her arms. The doctors had no solution to or explanation of the open sores apart from offering drugs and injections. Seeing her sorry plight, a friend advised her to go to The SCOAN to seek the mercy of God. Agreeing, she came and received the Anointing Water which she ministered all over her body immediately. In no time at all, the wounds had been completely healed and the sores covered up.
Since then, she can wash, cook and bathe without any pain or problem. She no longer has any pain where the wounds were neither is she pursued by the satanic kingdom that had tried to ensnare and destroy her. She advised that people should be wary of the devil’s schemes by being in constant prayer to God Almighty, our Saviour and Redeemer.
NO SIGN OF INCURABLE DISEASE AFTER MINISTERING ANOINTING WATER
A few years ago, Mr Paul Kamara fell sick and was taken to hospital. The doctors tested him and said he had Hepatitis B which has no cure. The next place for him was the grave and at 14 years this was a terrifying prospect. He was still so young, had so much to offer and had so much yet to accomplish. He lost concentration and this seriously affected his performance and grades. His parents introduced him to Emmanuel TV and they got the Anointing Water for him which he began to minister to himself.
It was exam time for Paul, a period in which he would usually feel dizzy, lack concentration and not do well at all. But this time, he was pleasantly surprised that unlike before he was physically strong and the exams went well. After ministering the Anointing Water and discovering that he no longer had the dizzy feelings he used to, he went to the doctors for a check-up and to his and the doctor’s surprise, he was found negative to Hepatitis B – there were no signs of Hepatitis B in his system! He was healed in the name of Jesus Christ, through the Anointing Water. He advises the world to look at the Anointing Water as a medium God uses to heal, bless and deliver His people.
CANADA HERE I COME!
Adejare Adedeji applied to several institutions for a Master’s degree but was denied despite having good grades to boast of. Frustrated, he came to The SCOAN for solution and received the Anointing Water. He took it home and ministered it earnestly; praying concerning his future and asking that God’s mercy should speak for him.
Soon after, he received an acceptance letter from a University in Toronto, Canada. He came showing that he had all he needed to commence his further education overseas, displaying his letter of acceptance, flight ticket and visa. He advised Christians to believe that the Anointing Water is our connection to Jesus Christ, our Provider.
MY EIGHT DRY YEARS OF BARRENNESS WERE DRENCHED IN TEARS OF JOY THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER
Mrs. Winifred Jonathan gave her testimony in tears of joy as she recalled the many name- callings and tribulations she had endured in her eight years battle with barrenness. People had criticized her for staying with her husband and many others took her from one place to another for different solutions, bathing her in rivers and all other kinds of supposed solutions but she kept believing that one day,
God would do His wonders in her life. Then that one day came; her mother who lived in the USA told her to come to The SCOAN to receive the Anointing Water. She agreed and when her mother came to visit her, they went together and received the Anointing Water. Sometime later, she was feeling strange and woke up in the night several times. She did a home pregnancy test and she discovered that she was pregnant! In the auditorium, she held her beautiful baby to show the whole world what God has done for her. We just need to see the faithfulness and trustworthiness of God and our faith will come spontaneously.
JUST AS THE MAN OF GOD PROPHESIED!
Mr. Godwin Akanhu from Abia State, Nigeria, received words of prophecy when he and his wife visited The SCOAN. They came due to the loss of their only child after six years of marriage. When their daughter became sick, they took her to many hospitals and even visited a spiritualist. Their daughter was eight months old when she died. In grief, they decided to come to The SCOAN and that was when Prophet T.B. Joshua told them that he saw them in a cage, a revelation which Mr Akanhu immediately confirmed while explaining their woes.
They received prayer and were further comforted when they received prophecy of a baby to come. After two weeks, she had conceived and today they are parents of a beautiful baby. To God be the glory!
MAKE THE WORD WORK AND GOD WILL MAKE IT GOOD
The problems of low sperm count and ovarian cyst for Mr. & Mrs. Anand from India, respectively, made child-bearing a big challenge to their faith. During those hard times, Mr. Anand decided to travel to The SCOAN where he had seen many with the same problem receive solutions.
He visited The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water to minister to himself and his wife. She soon became pregnant and despite the doctors being critical, the pregnancy went smoothly. Mrs. Anand continued ministering the Anointing Water throughout her pregnancy. The doctors were still worried, unsure if she and the baby would survive due to her seemingly weak state. To the doctors’ surprise and relief – with ease, she gave birth to a very healthy baby boy. They travelled all the way from India to The SCOAN Lagos, Nigeria, to give their testimony of the grace and gift of God.
FAKE MONEY FAKE LIFE – CONFESSION OF AN EX-FRAUDSTER
When Mr Tachinda was 10 years old, his grandfather took him to his shrine. He was initiated for one week where he had to swallow the tongue of a chicken every day and bathe in the river as part of the process. He began stealing from his father and often ran away from school but this was only the beginning of the germination of the foul seed which had been planted in his life. He started clubbing and meeting bad gangs who introduced him to taking drugs and how to dupe people (defraud people of money). Advancing in his practises, he got tattoos done as directed by the evil spirits. One was of the mermaid he would sleep with in his dreams; another was a cobra that would appear to him when he was fighting so that no one could defeat him. He also had tattoos of a tiger on his body as well. He saw a tiger physically in his village and in a dream he was told the tiger was his grandfather. After doing this, came the power to command people who would comply without hesitation. He had agents working for him all over the world giving him information to help him steal people’s identities and sell their properties. The agents would provide all he needed including false passports so that people would believe that he was who he said he was.
He become fed up with life however as after everything, he ended up with nothing. On the outside, he would mix with the rich but inside he was empty, constantly tormented in dreams by those whom he had duped. He came to The SCOAN with a plan to get the Anointing Water to enhance his duping career! That was how the Lord Jesus Christ arrested him in the power of the Holy Spirit, delivering him from the evil spirits which had used him to defraud thousands across the globe. Since then, duping is no longer a part of him. He no longer sees the evil woman which had tormented him in his dreams. He publicly renounced the life of stealing, fornication and all fraudulent ways advising all still in the bondage of the evil one to look to Jesus Christ for salvation.
