“Jesus Christ spoke the Word; it healed the sick and broke the power of demons over men. The Apostles spoke the Word, the sick were healed and multitudes were recreated. I believe, when we preach Christ to you today, the sick will be healed, the lame will walk, the blind will see, the deaf will hear, the captives will be set free and the broken hearted will be made whole, the power of sin and satan will be broken off you and you will be recreated in Christ Jesus because God’s Word is the same yesterday, today and forever”. With these words, Evangelist Edward animated the atmosphere with kingdom consciousness even as the congregants shouted their hearts out in praise and thanksgiving anchored by the Emmanuel Singers. The Word of God, no doubt, addresses all our situations and remains the standard for every true Christian who desires victory over the inevitable obstacles of life.
In a sermon titled AGREE WITH GOD’S WORD, Evangelist Edward encouraged Christians to stick to God’s Word as it is the only perfect assurance of our victory over satan and discouraging situations that pop up in life: “Never doubt your salvation. As a Christian, satan cannot snatch you away from God. He will try but he will not succeed. Never for a moment think that God’s power and ability is not enough to overcome your challenges. We confess only what God says. We hold fast to that confession with a fearless consciousness that the Word of God can never fail. We say what God has said over and over until the thing promised in His Word and desired in our hearts is fully manifested in our lives”.
CAREER STAGNATION BOWS TO GOD’S POWER
Mr Morgan Mulilo was stuck on one rank for seven years without promotion. The Zambian immigration officer, in spite of his posting as officer-in-charge to a new district, remained on the same rank of Assistant Immigration Officer. The stagnancy notwithstanding, Mr Mulilo was optimistic that things will get better. His level of faith was displayed when he simulated his promotion by creating a prototype of his envisioned rank, hoping it will soon be a reality. In the midst of his expectations, his wife came down to The SCOAN to seek the face of God.
When Mrs Mulilo arrived at The SCOAN she was opportune to see the man of God who prayed for her family and gave her the Morning Water. On her return to Zambia, she prayed alongside her husband, asking God to prove Himself in their situation. They ministered the Morning Water on themselves and especially on Mr Mulilo’s shoulder in anticipation of his promotion. Within that month, things took a miraculous turn. Mr. Mulilo was called to come for a letter in his regional office. The content of the letter were his back-dated (taking effect from January 2, 2013) promotion from Assistant Immigration Officer to Immigration Officer as well as his new salary package. By the time he went for his April, 2015, he discovered that his new salary arrears had been paid right from January 2, 2013.
Singing and dancing in gratitude to God before a delighted congregation, Mr Mulilo urged people all over the world to put their faith in action by reaching out to God whenever situations go beyond their power just as the woman of the issue of blood did in the Holy Bible.
FINANCIAL HARDSHIP SHOWN THE EXIT DOOR
Life for Mr Olushola Kolawole was a struggle. The Sokoto-based general contractor who was once a mega contract executor found it difficult to make ends meet. Instead of the usual big contracts, he was awarded insignificant ones. Sometimes, he would not be paid at all. He could not sit down and watch his life continue the way it was going. He resorted to watching Emmanuel TV and became greatly inspired with the teeming miracles that happen at The SCOAN. Armed with an unflinching faith, he came down to the Arena of Liberty where he received the Morning Water.
When he returned to Sokoto, he ministered the Morning Water and waited for the manifestation of God’s power. After a short while, he ran into an advert requiring contractors to bid for a federal government contract. Despite the number of bidding companies that competed with him, he was not moved as he ministered the Morning Water on his company documents and sent them to the advertiser. Weeks later, he was informed that he won the contract. Even though he had no funds to execute the contracts, as he continued ministering the Morning Water, the next day, people who owed him called him to come for his money. As at the time of his testimony, he had executed 75 percent of the project. Bubbling with rekindled hope and joy, Mr Kolawole thanked God for his restoration and urged the congregation to continue to repose their faith in God even as he advised them to make use of God’s grace in the Morning Water medium.
DELIVERED, BLESSED AND UPLIFTED
Mrs Beatha Andima from Namibia was a notorious consumer of green bottles. She would drink herself to a stupor and misbehave, continuing to wallow in that pitiable life for so many years. She would stock her fridge with beer and would not even remember to drink water. She was under the yoke of that unwholesome life until a friend introduced her to Emmanuel TV. While watching the channel one day, her attention was caught by the manifestation of God’s power as the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for a pregnant woman. According to her, as the baby in the pregnant woman’s womb shook, she found herself vomiting blood in her room. And since that day in 2012, she stopped drinking alcohol.
Sometime in 2013, Mrs Andima visited The SCOAN and received prayer at the Prayer Line after which she returned to her country and met her husband. According to her, the same week she met her husband was the same week she became pregnant. She eventually delivered a baby boy in 2014. As she continued to witness God’s grace in her life, the devil also came with his trouble. One day, her son fell to the ground and lost consciousness. She made for her Morning Water and ministered it on him. After three hours, the boy came back to life even though he looked weak and passed out reddish urine. In order to ascertain the nature of his ailment, she took him to the doctor who observed that he had a hole in the heart. On hearing the doctor’s observation, Mrs Andima rejected it and called on the God of T.B. Joshua saying, “Lord, You revived my dying son. I don’t believe You will leave a hole in his heart”.
After praying and ministering the Morning Water, she returned to the doctor for a check up. The same doctor who said the child had a hole in the heart confirmed that he could not see a thing like that. The hole was nowhere to be found! To cap up her story of victory, God also blessed Mrs Andima with a lucrative teaching job even though she had no prior teaching experience. She was not even employed as a green horn; she was placed in a respectable position. She had dreamt and seen the man of God declare that she would be a teacher with a good job on the way. Mrs Andima encouraged people all over the world to hold the word of God in awe and believe in it so that God will meet their needs.
BAKER’S CYST CONSUMED BY HOLY GHOST FIRE
For a month and half, Mrs Elizabeth Kamene was almost rendered useless by an excruciating pain that seized her by the leg one morning, as she made her way to work. The heavy medication coupled with her inability to go to work afterwards turned into a nightmare she had to cope with. After comprehensive medical tests, she was diagnosed with baker’s cyst. Placed on sick leave, she continued to swallow her pain killers without much relief. She was on the verge of giving up on getting a solution when she contacted a group of Kenyans who were visiting The SCOAN to help her get the Morning Water.
When she received the Morning Water, precisely a day before she was billed to return for another medical examination, she ministered it in faith concerning her condition and asked God to heal her, stressing that she had seen many people give testimonies. After praying with the Morning Water, she went for the test the next day. In accordance with her faith, the doctors found nothing! The baker’s cyst had disappeared. Even the doctors were confused why she would come for such a test not knowing that God was at work over a condition that had been diagnosed by the previous doctors. Mrs Kamene advised people all the world to have faith in God.
MULTIPLE BLESSINGS FOR AN ‘UNKNOWN’ SOLDIER
For twenty three years, Sergeant Agustine Ogbu remained stuck on the same rank. All efforts to get promotion hit the brick wall. Frustrated and tired of trying, he carried on with his life looking up to God for his future. One day, his son walked up to him and said he wanted to enlist into the Nigerian army. Sergeant Ogbu was mad at his so for attempting to join a body that did not treat him fairly. Moreover, as a junior and non-commissioned officer, it would be difficult for his son to get admission, bearing in mind the practice of nepotism in the Nigerian system.
Suddenly, Sergeant Ogbu changed his mind. With the Morning Water in his possession, he encouraged his son to enlist in the army, urging him to minister the Morning Water at every stage of the enlistment process. Doing as his father instructed him, the young Ogbu passed all the stages including the medical, credential and physical screening. At the final exams, he also came out in flying colours and was offered admission to study a 5 year course at the Nigerian Defence Academy.
Since he started ministering the Morning Water, things took a promising turn for Mr Ogbu and his family. He began the construction of his own house and also bought a car for his wife. His son’s not too encouraging WAEC results were redeemed after another attempt that involved the ministration of the Morning Water. As it stands, Mr Emmanuel Ogbu will be commissioned a senior cadet officer of the Nigerian Air force in five years time. Sergeant Ogbu is delighted that what he could not achieve is finally coming to him through his son. More significantly is the fact that by the time his son graduates, Sergeant Ogbu will be junior in rank to him and would salute him in line with military hierarchy.
Testifying in company of his son and wife, Sergeant Ogbu advised parents to remain focused and learn not to underestimate their children and never to assess them from face value. He also urged families across the world to get the Morning Water which he described as a potent instrument of God’s power.
YOUR TESTIMONY IS A PRODUCT OF YOUR FAITH IN GOD’S WORD. KEEP BELIEVING; IT MUST SURELY COME TO PASS. EMMANUEL!
