On Sunday 31 May, 2015, the church service at The SCOAN witnessed yet another spirit-filled ministration of the Word of God for the edification of His children upon whom He has continued to shower with love and joy unlimited. The congregants, with their hearts full of thanksgiving and praise, glorified the name of their King to the highest heavens. On the lips of the congregants, He has placed songs of testimony as he did to the biblical Israelites by rivers of Babylon. The choristers, motivated by the deep and incisive messages in their songs, left bold impressions of repentance and redemption in the minds of many.
Miracles are proof that the scriptures were true; they still are. There was one proof then and there is one proof now – miracle in His name, Jesus Christ. Below are testimonies of the goodness of God in the life of the people and we know these testimonies will strengthen your faith.
JOBLESSNESS/UNDEREMPLOYMENT BOW TO GOD’S POWER WORKING THROUGH THE MORNING WATER
Frustrated by her joblessness which had been a thorn in her flesh since 2007 when she graduated from College of Education, Agbor, Delta State, Nigeria, Mrs. Egbaje Lynda Liberty concluded that meeting the man of God at The SCOAN to pray for her in Jesus’ name would be the only solution to her problem. In the company of her husband, she visited The SCOAN but was hugely disappointed when she could not meet the man of God due to the massive population of guests present. Bent on encouraging his wife who had already started crying for not being able to meet the man of God, her husband, Mr. Liberty urged his wife to minister the Morning Water which he had got at The SCOAN that day. Shortly after ministering the Morning Water, her father who had also been making moves to get her a job informed her of a friend’s offer to assist her in a very good establishment. Again, her husband, on hearing about the job opportunity encouraged her to minister the Morning Water on the application letter she was going to submit for the job. Mrs. Liberty did as her husband had advised and the quick turn of events caught her fancy. As soon as she submitted the application, she was informed by her father that he had been called to come and pick her employment letter. At that moment, she knew that the power of God in the Morning Water was at work. She never even attended any interview for the job. Against all human expectations, she was employed by the Federal High Court of Nigeria as an Assistant Executive Officer with a very good pay which has greatly improved her standard of living. Almost simultaneously also came an admission offer for her to further her education at the university. And she was given the permission by her employers to combine her education with work. Thanking God for the seamless manifestation of his glory through the Morning Water medium, she urged people to have faith in God.
DIABETIC LEG ULCER HEALED AT PRAYER LINE
Mrs. Joseline Vordzogbe from Ghana was ravaged by leg ulcer due to diabetes and needed urgent help to alleviate the pains she was going through. She had gone to several hospitals without finding solution. Hence, a visit to The SCOAN, the Arena of Liberty became the ultimate decision. She visited The SCOAN and was placed at the Prayer Line where the man of God prayed for her in Jesus’ name.
On getting back to Ghana, she noticed that the ulcerous wound started covering up and within a short period, it had completely dried up. Stamping her leg on the ground as a proof of her healing, she told the congregation that she could not do so when the ulcer was there. Mrs. Vordzogbe glorified the name of the Lord for freeing her from the pain and incapacitation the ulcer had brought to her life.
LUMBAR SPONDYLOSIS HEALED AT PRAYER LINE
Burkina Faso-based Chikezie Ozioma, a Nigerian national, came under the attack of a strange waist pain that made walking difficult for him. Coupled with this was the terrible nightmares he used to experience. He patronised many hospitals in Burkina Faso but could not get any relief. He decided to visit his fatherland, Nigeria. By this time, the pain had spread to his left leg and made movement very difficult and painful. He managed to come down to Nigeria with his condition and visited a hospital where he was diagnosed with lumbar spondylosis. The doctors gave him some medicine to use but his condition remained the same; no improvement. Faced with the dire need to live his normal life again, he decided to come down to The SCOAN where he was arrayed at the Prayer Line. According to him, as the man of God approached him from a distance of about one meter, he felt something like a magnetic force which shook the affected parts of his body. The man of God finally laid hands on him asking him to get up. Immediately, he was up on his feet, walking and running without any pain or difficulty. Proclaiming his healing in utter amazement and gratitude to God, Mr. Ozioma jumped unhindered before the congregation. He also narrated how Jesus Christ rescued him from demonic captivity through the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, in a dream after the prayer he received at The SCOAN. According to him, in that dream, he was being chased by a group of people. Then, Prophet T.B. Joshua appeared and covered him with a net. Immediately, this group of people disappeared and since then, he has not experienced the terrible nightmares again.
DESTINY CAREER/JOB DISCOVERED THROUGH PRAYER
For Miss Faith Nkhwa, working in a bank was the best thing that could ever happen to her. She loved the banking job with passion and held onto the one she had at all personal costs. The young Batswana was a degree holder but received the same remuneration with the very junior workers. Within her, there was something fundamentally wrong. Aside her job issues, she was always in and out of hospital, having been diagnosed with low blood. For her, coming down to The SCOAN for prayers was the only dependable way out of her challenges. She was placed at the Prayer Line where the man of God prayed for her even. Back home in Botswana, she dreamt that she was queuing for a job alongside her friends. She noticed that it was the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua that was giving out the application forms for a bank job. While others were receiving theirs, the man of God refused to give her the form, when it got to her turn. As she grappled with the ensuing unhappiness, the man of God directed her to a lady in military attire who eventually handed her a package containing military uniform and she woke up. When she got to work the next day, she narrated the dream to her friend. Few weeks later, the same friend informed her of job advertisement by the Botswana Defence in search of female officers. Though her friend informed her of the job advertisement jokingly, she managed to beat the application deadline. To her surprise, she was invited for interview after which she was accepted and sent on one-year training and afterwards commissioned as an Officer. After her commissioning as an Officer, she soon discovered that the bank where she was working before got shut down while all her former colleagues lost their jobs. In her reckoning, God took her to the place of her destiny even though she never understood the whole thing from the beginning. Today, she thanks Him for preserving her destiny and making her smile. Enumerating some of her achievement since joining the military, she is now a second lieutenant, commanding many troops at 20 years. She has been able to buy a house of her own and is presently building one for her mother. Glorifying God for what He had done in her life, she urged the people to rely on God for the fulfilment of their destinies.
U.S CITEZENSHIP GRANTED/PREMATURE BABY SURVIVES THROUGH MORNING WATER MINISTRATION
Mr. Jonathan Onyenekwe, a Nigerian residing in the United States had been trying to process his citizenship for seven years without success. It became more frustrating for him when he was told that his file with which he was to process his documents was missing from the Immigrations Office there in the United States. He employed the services of one of the best lawyers in the USA and even took his matter to the Congress Office, all in a bid to resolve this problem but all proved abortive. Not knowing what to do, he decided to run to God for a way out. He visited The SCOAN and got the Morning Water which he ministered in Jesus’ name. Getting back to the USA, he went back to the Immigrations office to once again present his case and to his surprise, that same day, his file was brought out and he was granted an interview which he passed. This was the same office that could not locate his file for many years. Today, he is a citizen of The United States of America. His wife, Mrs Chinwe Onyenekwe also testified of how God saved the life of her baby who was delivered prematurely as a result of a terrible respiratory problem it suffered while in the womb. The doctors had even advised her to carry the baby through as there was no point delivering it prematurely because there was no chance of survival. But she stood her ground and asked that the baby be taken out prematurely. After delivery, the baby who was very tiny, was put in an incubator and placed on life support. It was during this period the husband came down to The SCOAN to get the Morning Water which he ministered in Jesus’ name for the procurement of his USA citizenship. He also gave the wife to minister on their baby. Miraculously, the baby that was so tiny and whom doctors had said would not be able to walk or talk, survived and has grown to a healthy three year-old child walking and talking freely to the glory of God! She advised all to always trust in God no matter the situation they are facing for the Lord is able to see them through.
