On Sunday, March 15, 2015, the glorious atmosphere at The SCOAN service was a delight to behold. The Heavenly excitement never wanes as the congregation accompany the choristers in the rendition of heart-moving songs. That God is overwhelmingly present is a fact that cannot be over-emphasised. His presence is felt even in the humble conduct of the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua whose short message on faith left deep marks on the minds of the congregation.
Speaking about the faith bracelet, the man of God said “The Faith Bracelet helps on the outside to set your belief”. Citing Romans 10:8-10, the man of God elucidated the place of faith in cementing our relationship with God: “The message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart.” And that message is the very message about faith that we preach: 9 If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.”
The man of God also explained, “A man may profess, ‘I am a Christian’ and not such in heart. A man may come out and say, ‘I am born again’ but not such in heart. Until trials come that you will know because trials and temptations are meant for our belief. The Holy Spirit uses our heart to guide our soul. Before we can be what we confess the Holy Spirit must use your heart to guide your soul”.
At The SCOAN, God’s power is continually manifested through testimonies that fulfil His promise of redemption and salvation to His people. There is never a situation or ailment that is beyond Him. Even distance is not a barrier. Believe and receive your miracle NOW!
MORNING WATER FLUSHES AWAY LEG INJURY, DIABETES AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE.
Mrs. Theresa Abisi had come to Lagos to live with her son in order to get quality medical attention for her diabetes and high blood pressure challenges. One fateful morning, she had tried to board a tricycle to keep an appointment with her doctor when she had her leg injured after the tricycle rider had miscalculated thinking that she was already inside and attempted to move. She found herself on the ground in a pool of her own blood with her leg badly battered.
In the ensuing commotion, sympathisers had gathered round her while she wallowed in pain. While she was still on the floor, she saw a picture of the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua telling her to get up that she was free. Meanwhile, in order to address the situation medically, she was taken to a hospital where the doctor concluded that her leg had to be amputated. She had to crawl to get around.
She was brought to The SCOAN with gory pictures of her fatally battered leg. Her case got the attention of the man of God who gave her the Morning Water with the sum of N150, 000. After ministering the Morning Water, the leg healed while both the Diabetes and High Blood Pressure disappeared in Jesus’ name. Walking majestically amid songs of praise, she glorified the name of God for what He had done for her through the medium of the Morning Water. She advised people to continue to trust God in all situations.
YOKES OF PROSTITUTION, WITCHCRAFT AND ALCOHOLISM BROKEN
Miss Precious from Ghana got hooked into alcoholism, smoking and prostitution when she was only 15. It all started one fateful day while eating apples on her way to school, she had encountered a strange man who requested that she gave him the apple she was already eating. She obliged him the fresh one but he insisted on having the one she was already eating. After granting his request, that night, she dreamt of the man coming to have sex with her. When she woke up, she discovered blood on her bed sheet.
Back in school, she found herself hanging out with wild girls who introduced her into drinking and smoking. She was subsequently introduced to a big woman who took her with others on shopping sprees where they were gifted obscene dresses amid other ‘freebies’. But she was soon to discover that the devil gives no free gift. She was initiated into prostitution after the big woman took them to a herbalist who requested their pieces of their hair and nails for charms with which they could seduce men. Armed with charms, she destroyed many marriages and seduced big men like ministers, bank managers, lawyers and other wealthy people.
She eventually left the big woman but kept advancing in the world of prostitution. She was given a ring by the witchdoctor that enabled her to disappear whenever she found herself in difficulties. Her life continued to worsen on that destructive path. Her pictures were in many hotels and she had a lot of clients.
Her involvement in those evil ways became so deep that she began to see horrible creatures dance round her at night. In the confusion, she met a man who requested from her the only money she had on her. After giving the man the money, he told her that her sins were forgiven and instructed her to go to The SCOAN and be delivered.
At The SCOAN, she fell under the superior fire of the Holy Spirit and was delivered. Since then, her life has changed for the better. She advised the youth to desist from evil influences and hold on to God.
BONE FRACTURE HEALED
Mrs. Aroh Juliet, a Civil Defence Officer had an accident which fractured her tibia and fibula. On getting to the hospital, the doctor advised that she should be taken to a bigger hospital. After receiving treatment at a Teaching Hospital for one month, she was placed on POP for eight months during which she could not do anything on her own as she was always on crutches until she visited The SCOAN.
At the Prayer Line, the man of God, seeing her on crutches walked up to her and commanded her to rise up and walk in the name of Jesus. Immediately, she rose up and walked for the first time unsupported in many months. Her crutches became useless under the powerful anointing through the man of God in Jesus’ name. An ecstatic Mrs. Aroh thanked God for His wonderful work in her life and called on people to believe that with God, all things are possible.
PROMOTED AFTER YEARS OF STAGNATION
Mrs. Madalisto Kamtambe, a Malawian Custom Officer had been suffering from career stagnation for over thirteen years. She had remained in one position for so long that feelings of inferiority and low self esteem began to set in as most of her colleagues were being promoted. She took her problems to many places in search for solution but all proved futile. Her disappointment got to a head and she made up her mind to visit The SCOAN.
At The SCOAN, she received the Morning Water and Morning Sticker which she prayerfully applied when she got back home. She would always minister the Morning Water declaring “This is the time for my breakthrough…I am promoted…I am the head and not the tail”. Then, she dreamt of two big lions chasing her but she conquered them using the Anointed Sticker. Subsequently, she received an invitation for an interview. She continued to declare her victory in Jesus’ name and asked God to favour her after ministering the Morning Water on her credentials. The moment she entered the interview room, everyone was smiling at her. She had prayed that if there was a question she had no answer to that God would give her special favour to scale through. To her surprise, the interviewers on a number of occasions completed the answers to the questions asked of her. She was promoted the following week from the lowest grade to a supervisor (team leader) of the company.
Thanking God for His miraculous intervention in her case, she advised people to put their trust in God and hand over every of their burdens to Him.
MIRACULOUS EMPLOYMENT THROUGH MORNING WATER MINISTRATION
Mr. Naidike Godwin from Bayelsa state was torn between disappointment and frustration as he had been jobless for four long years. All his efforts to get gainful employment remained futile. In order to avoid being idle, he accepted the offer of cable TV installation from a friend who was not happy with his situation. There were even instances when he had to engage in menial labour such as carrying cement blocks to make ends meet. But certainly, those were not the dreams of the young man. He knew that life had more promises for him.
His mother, understanding that only God could change her son’s situation, brought him to The SCOAN where he received the Morning Water. After ministering the Morning Water, he saw the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, in a dream urging him to keep pressing and never give up. True to the Prophet’s counsel in the dream, he received a call from Abuja inviting him for a job interview. In spite of all the challenges, God provided money through his uncle to enable him board a flight to Abuja for the interview. Getting to the company, without conducting an interview with him, he was handed a letter of employment as an Environmental Scientist.
Describing his breakthrough as a rare miracle and divine intervention, he thanked God and urged people especially the youths to continue pressing and believing in God no matter the situation they are passing through.
SEIZED PASSPORT RECOVERED THROUGH MORNING WATER AND STICKER MINISTRATION
Evangelist Samuel Emmanuel was playing professional football in Oman and decided to visit Dubai to get a car on lease from a car rental company. However, having been fortunate to purchase his own car, he decided to return the rented car to the car rental company. Instead of cancelling the deal after he had returned the car, the company insisted that the deal was still in effect and refused to close his account with them. The implication was that he had to continue paying for a car he had already returned. That development affected his football career as the case was reported to the Dubai Police who took him to the High Court. His passport was seized and as a result he could not travel out of Dubai even when clubs were on his trail. The case continued for seven years.
One fateful day while playing football, he was spotted by a Nigerian coach who had come to visit Dubai. Surprised by the level of talent and skills he displayed in the round leather game, the coach queried his decision to remain there. He explained his predicament to the coach who offered to assist him. The coach invited him to his hotel room where he gave him a bottle of the Morning Water and Morning Sticker and instructed him to pray with them.
Having received and prayed with the Morning Water and Sticker, his confidence soared as he made his way to the High Court, specifically to the Chief Judge’s office where his passport had been for seven years. On getting to the Chief Judge’s office, he openly ministered the Morning Water. Upon sighting the Morning Sticker that he was holding, the judge confessed of knowing the man of God, Prophet Τ.Β. Joshua. Immediately, the judge ordered seven policemen to search for Evangelist Emmanuel’s international passport. The passport was eventually found and returned to him, enabling him to continue his career.
Testifying at The SCOAN, evangelist Emmanuel also told the congregation how the Morning Water cured his strange stomach trouble. Exalting the name of God, he advised the youths to depend solely on God and imbibe the practice of ministering the Morning Water and using the Morning Sticker so that their talents will blossom.
PROPHETIC DELIVERANCE FROM THE YOKE OF PROSTITUTION
Ms. Gladys, a 29 year-old Cameroonian prostitute was at The SCOAN during Sunday Service prophecy time. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied to the congregation that there was a harlot in the congregation who had come from the brothel. The man of God asked her to come out for deliverance. She knew the prophecy was for her but was reluctant to come out. But when the prophecy was repeated for the third time, she was compelled to come out. She was delivered in Jesus’ name and testified that all those evil urges had left her. She thanked God for her new lease of life and advised women to do nobler jobs for money rather than resort to prostitution. She also encouraged them to hold on to God at all times.
TEARS OF SORROW WIPED AWAY THROUGH MORNING WATER MINISTRATION
Mrs. Anna Dakudzi, a Ghanaian by birth and Irish by naturalisation, was caught in a web of litigation after her children were found by social authorities in Ireland playing unsupervised. Being a child-friendly country with very stringent laws pertaining to the welfare of children, Mrs. Dakudzi was invited for questioning by the Social Works department, which took custody of her three children. After three weeks of investigations and explanations on both sides, her children were released to her.
However, after one year, the authorities wrote her a letter requesting her presence in court concerning the case of negligence in discharging parental care to her children. In the midst of all the legal fireworks, she was able to get the Morning Water which she ministered on all her documents, especially her certificates which are usually scrutinised in such cases to ascertain her fitness for parenting and work.
Two days before the case came up in court, she had a dream where she found herself in the ocean surrounded by people who tried to strangle her. Then, Prophet T.B. Joshua appeared coming down from the sky into their midst. Immediately, the people trying to strangle her fainted and died.
To her greatest surprise, on the day she appeared in court for the case, the judge who had been so hostile initially, struck out and dismissed the case brought against her and vindicated her fitness to be a parent. Filled with inestimable joy, Mrs. Dakudzi praised God for what he has done for her and advised people to repose their trust in God and continue to do His will.
