The SCOAN Sunday Service of July 24, 2016 demonstrated the fact that the works of God are beyond the barriers of space and time. While Evangelist Joseph engaged the minds of congregants with his message titled CAPTURE YOUR THOUGHTS FOR THE GLORY OF GOD, the man of God was in faraway South Korea doing what he was born to do.
Prophet T.B. Joshua was received in Seoul by a crowd that had waited for hours at the airport to welcome him to the South Korea 2016 Crusade. Day 1 and Day 2 of the crusade witnessed a heroic manifestation of God’s power as the sick were healed, the captives and oppressed were set free and the broken-hearted were uplifted.
Meanwhile to sum up his message, Evangelist Joseph urged Christians all over the world to guide and guard their thoughts in order not to allow the devil a space in their hearts. According to him, the life of a Christian will only attract more positivity when he or she thinks positively. “Every time you allow yourself to think positively and talk positively, you act positively”, he said. He acknowledged the common dilemma of choice that faces Christians but insists that there are no neutral thoughts. He stated that our thoughts are either of faith or of doubt. According to him, when our thoughts are of faith, they become great and produce great results – “Great thoughts produce great decisions but bad thoughts produce wrong decisions.”
Concluding, he urged Christians to manage their minds in order to be able to attract the kind of positive reality they desire. “Manage your mind because what happens in your mind will happen in time,” he advised.
During the Morning Water ministration, evangelists unleashed divine wrath on the kingdom of darkness as many were delivered from the grip of evil spirits and all sorts of afflictions in the name of Jesus Christ. Many who had received their own miracles also came out to testify to the goodness and glory of God in their lives.
YOKE OF BEDWETTING CONSUMED BY THE FIRE OF THE HOLY GHOST
The problem of bedwetting had ravaged the life of Mrs Obiageli Onuoha’s son right from birth. The lad had a horrible time with that problem and had to move from one hospital to the other in search of a medical solution that never really came. Even in Dublin, Ireland where they reside, all efforts to stop the problem proved abortive. A special machine which had an alarm system made for him could not tame the evil yoke as he usually slept too deep. The alarm system ended up being a waste of time and effort. Mrs Onuoha was not happy with the turn of events and decided to try other options. But the more her human reasoning tried to find a way out, the worse his situation became. He continued bedwetting to the extent that he lost two important excursion opportunities in his school. Trips to Ghana and Spain organised by his school eluded him because of his constant challenge.
At age 14, Bobby was still battling with the problem of bedwetting much to the disappointment of his mother. Having traversed different landscapes in search of solution without finding any, Mrs Onuoha decided to visit The SCOAN last week. During that Sunday, Bobby received the anointed touch of the man of God and immediately fell to the ground. After that encounter, he had said to his mother, “Mummy, I felt something leave my body as the man of God touched me.” Since that day, Bobby has not wet the bed. He now enjoys peaceful sleep. The yoke of bedwetting is definitely gone forever. Expressing her gratitude, Mrs Onuoha marvelled at the incomprehensible power and ways of God. She advised parents all over the world to draw closer to Him.
BLESSING OF PREGNANCY WIPES OUT PAST MISTAKES
After a romantic misadventure that resulted in a pregnancy which she aborted during her secondary school days, Mrs Eucharia Okoye never knew that a destructive growth had started raising its ugly head in her womb. When it was time to have a child for her husband, doctors discovered, after several tests, that the growth had continued to develop in her womb preventing her from conceiving. The only offer they could make was to suggest a surgery. It was at the brink of being operated upon that her husband asked her to leave the hospital and get ready for a visit to The SCOAN.
At The SCOAN, Mrs Okoye received the Morning Water. She continued to minister it to herself, praying to God to flush out the growth from her body. After a while, she returned to the hospital for a test. The doctor that conducted the test wondered what had gone wrong. “Who is that doctor that wanted to operate you? I can’t see any growth in your womb. There’s nothing growing in your womb!” he exclaimed. How an 18-year-old growth suddenly disappeared can only be an act of divine intervention.
As she testified last Sunday in company of her sisters-in-law, Mrs Okoye bubbled with so much joy as she flaunted her pregnancy for the congregation to see the work of God. She encouraged people facing her type of situation to come to The SCOAN and receive their own miracle. She advised them to have faith in God and come to Him, irrespective of their past mistakes.
HEART DISEASE AND PEPTIC ULCER FACE HEAVEN’S FIRING SQUAD
Mrs Oben Eveline Ayuk laboured with heart failure and peptic ulcer for six years. The Cameroonian visited many hospitals in her native country but could not really get any respite. She suffered from severe weakness and had difficulty eating food and drinking water. She virtually lived on medication all through those six years. The doctors advised her against eating starchy foods. They also told her to avoid foods high in cholesterol. In an effort to normalise her lifestyle as much as possible, they offered her an option of temporary relief at a very high price. She would have to provide a whopping 4 million francs to have a special instrument known as a battery inserted into her heart as a palliative measure.
Thinking that was the end of her life here on earth, she rushed down to The SCOAN and received the Morning Water. As she returned to Cameroon, she continued to minister it amidst prayers. Gradually, all those debilitating symptoms started giving way to renewed vigour and better well-being. She became strong once again and could do all those things she could not do before now. She now eats good food and drinks water, irrespective of the quantity. To confirm God’s marvellous work in her life, she returned to the hospital and did some tests. When the results were released, they showed that both the heart problem and peptic ulcer were no more.
Testifying at The SCOAN where congregants expressed their joy for her healing, Mrs Ayuk downed a full bottle of water to prove that she is now completely well. She advised people with similar conditions to seek the face of God.
MULTIPLE FIBROIDS KICKED OUT BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD
Mrs Folashade Jehovahson was diagnosed with multiple fibroids after she had experienced abdominal discomfort. After confirming the existence of the abnormal growths in her womb, her doctors had suggested surgery but she rejected it and declared that she had a God who would heal her without collecting a dime. She visited The SCOAN and received the Morning Water. Apart from ministering it during prayers, she would use it to cook and bathe. A few months later, her stomach which was previously hard started becoming soft. She knew that something miraculous had taken place.
Returning to the hospital for further tests, it was discovered that the multiple fibroids had melted away like snowflakes in the sun. The result of the tests showed that the fibroids were completely gone. Testifying in company of her husband, Mrs Jehovahson advised people all over the world, especially women facing her type of predicament, to run to God as He is the only One that can truly heal them. On his own part, her husband, Mr Olayinka Jehovahson had the following words for people of God – “For all Christians who centre their lives on Jesus Christ, better is not good enough; the best is yet to come.”
YOKE OF UNDEREMPLOYMENT LIFTED: ORDINARY TEACHER BECOMES HOD
Mrs Mary Onumonu, with all her qualifications, worked as an ordinary classroom teacher for nine years. Her aspiration was to work in a higher institution as a lecturer. But because of rising unemployment, she had no other choice than to accept the secondary school job. With her Master of Business Administration, Post-Graduate Diploma in Education, Post-Graduate Diploma in Management and a Higher National Diploma, she earned the same salary as people who had only a first degree. However, in spite of that unpalatable experience, Mrs Onumonu had a strong belief in her heart that one day, she would attain that height she had been aspiring to. She had even told her colleagues that her rise to glory was just a matter of time.
She visited The SCOAN and received the Morning Water which she ministered daily, in the name of Jesus. Eventually, a new institute in her native Bayelsa State, Nigeria took off – The International Institute of Tourism and Hospitality. She applied as a lecturer to the new institute and was called for an interview. After the interview, she was selected and was appointed as a lecturer. It didn’t end there! She was also made the Head of Department of Business Management and Public Administration. Testifying in style and exuding glorious confidence, Mrs Onumonu advised people, especially teachers who are under-employed not to lose hope but to trust in God.
