As usual, the congregants expressed their passion and joy for praise and worship led by the Emmanuel Singers. Every negativity, unbelief, infirmity and disappointment had to make way for the promise of salvation, redemption and elevation through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour. It was The SCOAN Sunday service of June 7, 2015. Everything that had breath praised the Lord!
Still loaded with the fresh anointing of the Mexico Crusade and Pastors’ Conference, the man of God, whose birthday comes up on Friday, June 12, 2015, had appreciative words for the congregation as well as all his well-wishers all over the world which was read by one of the evangelists, on his behalf: “Greetings to you, household of faith. My thoughts and prayers are with you. At this hour, you need this kind of prayer greatly. I came back from the revival trip last week Saturday, waiting for God’s command on what to do next. I can’t wait to join you. Thank you for your love and prayers. I am always in your thoughts and prayers”.
But beyond the expectations of well-wishers and followers all over the world, the man of God observed that the celebration of his birthday this time around would have to be done in line with the directive of our Lord, Jesus Christ, to Whom all power belongs: “About my birthday, which will take place this coming Friday, this is how Jesus wants us to celebrate it: E.G. – West Africa will celebrate in Ghana. Southern Africa will celebrate in South Africa. Other African countries – the timetable will be released on Emmanuel TV where each country will celebrate the birthday. Mexico, Colombia, Korea, Singapore, Australia, Russia, UK, USA, France etc. – will celebrate in their own countries”.
Speaking further, the man of God said that the birthday celebration would have to be observed accordingly in different parts of the world, without necessarily having to involve people travelling down to Nigeria: “I have to say something today about this birthday because this is the last Sunday before the occasion. I have received so many emails and letters from thousands of people all over the world who are coming to Nigeria for the birthday celebration. Nothing of such birthday celebration will take place here in Nigeria for now”.
Finally, he urged those who have already committed themselves by purchasing travel tickets to Nigeria to bear with him and the ministry for the new development while assuring them of his spiritual support as ever: “Once again, we are very sorry if you have already bought your ticket to come for the celebration – God will reward you. Once again, I am in your prayers and your thoughts. I can’t wait to join you”.
Jesus must be honoured in our lives every day. At The SCOAN, every testimony honours the name of Jesus. By His stripes, we are healed through our faith as sons and daughters of love; a noble creation. The gates of hell shall not prevail over us. The following testimonies depict the victory of our God over the kingdom of darkness.
LIFTED FROM POVERTY TO WEALTH
For Mr. Afachung, his unfortunate fall from grace to grass remains an experience he would continuously recount. How he lost his lucrative job and got entangled in the vicious web of abject poverty tells the story of a man who struggled with the unfavourable tides in the eye of the storm. Life was indeed very unfair to him. After losing his job, his landlord also came calling with a Quit Notice. Perturbed by the discoursing turn of events making a caricature of his life, he somehow stumbled on the Emmanuel TV channel.
Watching the Emmanuel TV channel became the precursor to his eventual breakthrough. The marvellous testimonies and awesome display of God’s power through the channel inspired him to come down to The SCOAN in search of his own redemption. But not without a grave psychological battle in which he had to wade off all discouraging fallacies and preconceived notions about The SCOAN. Receiving the Morning Sticker alongside the Morning Water, the freelance geologist was optimistic he could relive those prosperous days. Heeding the insight of an inner voice, he chose to pray with the Morning Sticker which he eventually placed in his wallet declaring that it will never run dry.
Sooner than expected, the anointing in the Morning Sticker began to manifest its miraculous energies. Companies began to chase Mr. Afachung with jobs, a development that motivated him to register his environmental impact assessment company in the first week of February, 2015. By the second week, he was approached by a company for a job and was awarded a contract worth 6.6 million naira. Today, those tears of anguish that robbed his face of heart-felt smiles have given way to glorious laughter and joy from the depths of his soul. He is currently building a house and has purchased a brand new car. His wife, who had endured those penurious times with him, would not stop thanking God for lifting them from the abyss of lack to the heights of abundant grace.
LOW SPERM COUNT DISMANTLED
Mr. Victor Igboerika was still tinkering with plans to marry his fiancé when the worst happened. He was diagnosed with low sperm count and was advised not to put her in the know lest she back-pedals from the marriage plan. But convinced that his honesty would be worth more than anything else, he opened up to her. And to his greatest amazement, she encouraged him with her passionate belief that God is capable of doing all things. Inspired by her encouragement, the marriage went ahead as planned. The couple kept faith in God amid all the embarrassing comments about their childlessness, knowing that ‘though the vision might tarry, it is for an appointed time’.
Knowing that the power of God at The SCOAN would solve the couple’s problem, Mr. Igboerika’s brother based in South Africa introduced them to the ministry. Without wasting of time, the couple visited The SCOAN and received the Morning Water. On getting home, they ministered it in prayer as husband and wife, hoping on and believing in God for a miracle. And true to their expectation, Mrs. Igboerika informed her husband that she missed her menstruation, a development that saw her go for a pregnancy test. When the result came out, she was confirmed pregnant. On his own part, Mr. Igboerika’s low sperm count was confirmed to have improved drastically to the bewilderment of his doctors. While the doctors were wondering how it happened, Mr. Igboerika used the platform to glorify the name of God for putting an end to his shame through the Morning Water medium. The couple advised people all over the world to wait on God’s time always for their breakthrough.
FREED FROM MULTIPLE FIBROIDS AND CAREER STAGNATION
Suffering from multiple fibroids and career stagnation, Mrs. Judith, a Cameroonian teacher was not happy with the direction her fate was heading to. In 2013, she visited The SCOAN with her heart full of the belief that her problems would bow to the anointing in the Arena of Liberty. Going through the Prayer Line and receiving the Morning Water, she returned to her country and continued to minister the wonder-working medium amid fervent prayers. She would minister the Morning Water on the part of her stomach that was causing her pain.
One morning, she woke up to discover that her underwear was stained by blood even as she had experienced a severe abdominal pain. To her, those were tell-tales of another horrendous episode in the offing but God’s incomprehensible power was at work. Having managed to go to work that day, she returned home and decided to use the convenience. Once in, she felt something drop from her into the toilet sink. The multiple mass of fibroids that threatened her joy was finally flushed out! To further confirm the miracle, she went to the hospital for check-up and was certified free from fibroids to the glory of God. Mrs. Judith also used the medium to testify to her multiple career promotions. She advised people out there to belief in the anointing available in the Morning Water and Morning Sticker.
ELEVEN YEARS BEDWETTING YOKE DESTROYED
Miss Uju Muogui’s reputation as a gospel singer was bent to be tarnished by satan, the schemer. He had afflicted her with the yoke of bedwetting for eleven years. It was a huge embarrassment that a young woman who wielded great talent could be so reduced to such shame. Tormented and dejected, Miss Uju would sometimes blame the bedwetting on her baby in order to save the face of her marriage. Aside the bedwetting, she had horrible dreams in which she seemed to be remote-controlled into acts against her wish.
Worried by those realities, she visited The SCOAN in search of solution. During the church service, the Morning Water was ministered on her. That same night, she had those same old dreams. But when something woke her up to go and ease herself, she discovered that for the first time, she did not wet herself and from that day till today, she has not had that embarrassing experience. It has gone for good through the anointing in the Morning Water. Miss Uju, filled with happiness while testifying to the goodness of God in her life, urged people to run to Him in times of trouble.
TWENTY TWO YEARS CAREER STAGNATION REPLACED BY DOUBLE PROMOTION AND BUSINESS ESTABLISHMENT
Mr. Muzenge Hachizibe had languished in the Zambian Police Force as a Sergeant for 22 years without promotion. He was obviously baffled by the stagnant nature of his career. Poised to turn things around, he decided to visit The SCOAN to scuttle the plans of the devil for his life. At The SCOAN, he received prayers from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua and also got the Morning Water. Back home in Zambia, he ministered the Morning Water continuously in prayer and believed that God was working out something great for him.
True to his faith, things began to take a dramatic turn. He was given double promotion by the Zambian Police Force from Sergeant to Criminal Investigating Officer. Cresting on the joy of his promotion, he was inspired to register and open his own security company which is doing very well today with a fleet of vehicles. From a frustrated Sergeant, he now counts himself among the blessed as an employer of labour. Thanking God for the breakthrough, he urged people to realise that there is no solution like running to God.
GUNSHOT RENDERED HARMLESS AFTER PRAYER VIA EMMANUEL TV
Mr. Uwem Okon is not a man that jokes with Emmanuel TV. Accustomed to praying alongside the man of God via the channel, he had made it a part of his duties to sustain the practice, even before he goes to bed at night. One fateful night however, the story went awry. He had just finished praying alongside the man on Emmanuel TV when a gang of armed robbers invaded his house and shot him at close range. The robbers were jolted by the fact that the bullet could only bruise him instead of penetrating deep into his skin. For that, they made to escape. But as they moved out of his house, something urged him to hide himself in the ceiling. How he got himself into the small ceiling space remains marvellous.
As the robbers fashioned out their escape strategy, they made a u-turn, agreeing to go for his life lest he identified them. But as they returned for him, he was already in the ceiling. When they finally left, he managed to drive himself to the police station to report the incident. But rather than treat his case with the required dispatch, the policemen on duty wondered how he survived the gunshot and appealed to him to give them some of the ‘thing’ he used for protection which did not allow the bullet to penetrate his skin. But overwhelmed with joy and gratitude to God for sparing his life, he told them that far from their suspicion, he only watched the Emmanuel TV channel through which he also prayed along with the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua.
SAVED FROM THE THROES OF DEATH
Retired Principal Rotimi Kola, a native of Ondo State was travelling within his state when he had a head-on collision with another vehicle in what can be described as a ghastly motor accident. Even though pictures of his damaged car showed how incredible it was for him and the other occupant to have survived the accident, Mr. Kola admits that it could only have been the handiwork of the Almighty God through the medium of the Morning Water and Morning Sticker. According to him, he ministers the Morning Water every day before he leaves his house and always has the Morning Sticker on the windscreen of his car.
After the accident, sympathisers who rushed to the scene marvelled at the occupants’ miraculous escape. However, citing the Morning Stickers on the windscreen, they concluded that the occupants were indeed children of Prophet T.B. Joshua, whom God used to save their lives from the throes of untimely death.
WEAK ERECTION, LOW SPERM COUNT HEALED THROUGH PROPHECY AND PRAYER
Mr. ThankGod Eribo had gone from place to place looking for a solution to his weak erection and low sperm count problems. He had even had three different crumbled marriages due to his inability to perform his duty as a man. His present marriage being the fourth was threatened by the same problem but he in company of his wife decided to visit The SCOAN to seek God’s help. Seated in the auditorium during a church service, the couple received prophecy and prayer from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua.
After the prophecy and prayer, there was an incredible change in his condition! The couple thereafter met as husband and wife and the grace of God through the power of prophecy manifested in their lives. The wife became pregnant and subsequently gave birth to a bouncing baby boy whom they named Godsend. Thanking God for wiping away their tears, Mr. ThankGod advised people to look up to God for the solution to their problems at all times.
Our God is good; His mercies endureth forever. Wherever you are and whatever your situation, distance is not a barrier. The mighty and miracle-working hands of God are not too short to locate you. Your faith is the key to unlocking God’s miracles! Emmanuel!
