Aside from the Mass Prayer which witnessed a fervent appeal to Heaven to destroy all the foundations of the works of the kingdom of darkness in the lives of the children of God, the man of God used the Sunday service of November 13, 2016 to pass across certain salient messages to congregants and Christians all over the world. He informed them of a coming revival that will take place in November and December aimed at preparing them to witness a Spirit-filled New Year.
Concerning his prophecy about the US elections, the man of God reminded naysayers that understanding the words of a Prophet requires spiritual maturity while calling for prayers for America. “We have seen the outcome of the election in the United States. Having seen and heard, you would notice that the prophecy was all about the popular vote, the vote of the majority of Americans. In this case, we need the Spirit of a prophet to understand, to know and to recognize what the prophet was talking about. Our levels are different. We are not on the same level. Take note of that. Our levels are different and we are not on the same level,” he said.
Continuing, he emphasised that, “There is no shortcut to spiritual maturity unless earthly understanding gives way to spiritual enlightenment. Many people were trying to interpret prophets on the basis of their minds and ideas. I quite understand, the prophecy actually caused uproar to many who gave it different meaning and interpretation.”
FROM FRAUD TO FREEDOM
Helicopters hovered over the riot on the streets of London, shining its flood lights down on the ground, trying to locate the perpetrators. Police lights flashed and sirens blared, as they surrounded the unlawful scene. Mr Omene and the crowd of others participating in the riot had been caught. This is the story of Mr Omene, a Nigerian who used to live in London.
The fourth child in a Christian family, Mr Omene had started life on a positive foot. In 2009, Mr Omene had been accepted into a prominent university in London, England. This was his chance to travel abroad and fulfil his dreams. Taking the plunge into the unknown, Mr Omene left Nigeria and set out on a journey that was supposed to connect him to the future he had desired.
Upon arriving in London, Mr Omene quickly felt that the weight of the tuition and living expenses would become so heavy in his first six months into his college journey. With time, his interest in the university education dwindled down. “I woke up one day and decided not to go to school anymore,” he recalled. Resorting to making a living rather than stay in school, he began searching for ways to make fast cash. One night, as he was walking the streets of London, he ran into a friend in a corner shop where he began to explain his problem. His friend described to him how he makes money by defrauding people. Mr Omene was enticed by his friend’s nefarious activity and the prospect of making a lot of money very quickly, not thinking about the implications of the illegal act.
Within three weeks, his friend helped him to fraudulently accumulate over GBP 6,000.00 into his account. Now, with a burning desire to make more money, Mr Omene started down a path that would eventually lead to his destruction. Within six months, he mastered bank fraud and started going deeper into the crime, delving into online fraud and hacking. He ran across a hacker who taught him how to extort money. This was how he began to steal money from international accounts, wiping the accounts clean of all cash. “I would make transactions and other people’s money would go into my account,” explained Mr Omene.
He had many young people working under him, stealing people’s bank cards and bank information, which he used to hack into their accounts. This became his business and started operating what he called ‘an organization.’ In one week, Mr Omene could steal anywhere from GBP 7,000 – 10,000. With the money, he would go to the casino and spend all of it in one weekend. He became so addicted to gambling that he could spend 48 hours straight at the casino. This kind of lifestyle led him to start drinking, smoking and fornicating. The money that he would steal was squandered away on gambling and alcohol.
Along the road, Mr Omene started doing drugs and had gotten connected to a drug dealer. During this time, his fraud business had started to slow down because of the tightening of security within the banks. Now, looking for another means of fast cash, he and a friend decided to break into the drug dealer’s house, stealing everything he had, including his huge stash of drugs. Mr Omene began selling these drugs to make his living and became a self-proclaimed “professional”. From there, something pushed him to start growing and selling his own drugs, recounting that: “Satan used me to destroy so many people’s lives.”
Mr Omene started living in fear that something might happen to him and his gang of “young workers” so he decided to buy guns and other weaponry as a way to protect his so-called organization. His sketchy business reduced him to a spiraling path of doing drugs, drinking alcohol, fornicating and to a life of violence. He was involved in many riots down the main streets of London, involving in many violent acts. He continued breaking the law until one fateful day, the law caught up with him. He was apprehended at the scene of one of the notorious riots. He was taken into custody and subsequently deported back to Nigeria.
His arrival back to Nigeria turned another page in his life. No longer able to practice his fraud activities due to different banking systems and not knowing how to go about his life, he continued to take drugs as a way to cope. One night, he met with a prostitute in a hotel, who said to him, “Don’t leave, the others are coming. I have powers from the water.” He was utterly confused at what she was saying and even became concerned. “I thought I was lost in the world.”
That was when the series of nightmares began, dreaming of a water kingdom and serpents attacking him. What was more, his money had completely finished. Broke and nowhere to go, Mr Omene was forced to go back to his mother’s house. While living there, his mother would have Emmanuel TV on 24/7. He started listening to the testimonies and relating to the things the people were saying. “I realized I might be possessed.” Upon this realization, Mr Omene began to ask God for forgiveness for the life he was living. That night he had a dream that he was told to go to The SCOAN and he would be delivered. That was how he found himself in The SCOAN just two weeks ago. “When the Morning Water touched me, it was like a tsunami hit me. I was taken over completely.”
After receiving deliverance, Mr Omene stood today to testify about how God Almighty had completely set him free from the chains of his addictions and the burdens of his past life. The nightmares he once had are gone and he now no longer has the urge to smoke, drink or do drugs. He has since quit his lifestyle of fornication and adultery. He advised the congregation and Emmanuel TV viewers to follow Jesus and to illuminate their lives in the light of God’s Word, saying that the life he was living before was not worth it. Elated by his new found freedom, Mr Omene boasts in the Lord, “I was lost but now I am found. I was blind but now I can see!”
Bottom of Form
MOUTH AND THROAT CANCER DRIED OUT OF PLACE
Mr. Omotosho developed what seemed to be an ordinary boil in his upper part of the mouth. Little did he know that what he had thought was a small boil and that could be treated medically would actually graduate into a painful mouth and throat cancer. Racing against time as his health began to deteriorate by the hour, Mr. Omotosho went from one hospital to another. He lost speech and his mouth could no longer handle solid foods. He had to survive on liquefied food substances. His doctor warned him that he feared the dreadful prognosis. His mouth smelled so badly that passengers complained about the offensive buccal odour any time he boarded a public transport. He felt like a decaying walking corpse, as he vomited heavy blood every day.
With no medical solution in sight, Mr. Omotosho ran to The SCOAN where he was arranged for the prayer line. Thanking God for what He has done in his life, Mr. Omotosho told people all over the world that as soon as the prophet prayed for him, the saliva dried up immediately and the uncontrollable dripping ceased. The dead mouth tissues and throat started to fall off as the cancerous sore and associated excruciating pain healed away.
Appreciating and glorifying God’s name, Mr. Omotosho advised people all over the world that in every situation you find yourself in, run to God for it is only Him who has a solution. Jesus Christ is the only hope.
GIANT WOMAN CAST OUT, FAMILY RESTORED
Mrs Josephine Olokor and her husband came to The SCOAN with their children to testify what God has done in their lives. Mrs Olokor narrated her story starting from her grandmother who gave birth to five children. All her children died, remaining only one child who gave birth to Mrs Olokor at a tender age. She grew up with her grandparents. She never knew the woman, who she used to see as her elder sister, was actually her biological mother. One day, her grandmother revealed the real story of her birth. Still grieving over the loss of all her children but one, her grandmother slept off during one of her visits to the riverside. In her dream, she saw a little girl went to the river to fetch water. When the child cried, she went to help her and wished that could be hers as she comforted her. Soon after that dream, the grandmother’s only surviving teen conceived and gave birth to Josephine. As she was growing up, she used to see beautiful girls around her that nobody else could see. She felt very comfortable to be in the midst of her invisible friends.
At school, Josephine used to be the best student as there was a spiritual giant woman who gave her tutoring and mentorship on how to carry out her assignments. During her seamstress training, the giant woman would appear to her in dream and guide her through. Little did the world around her know that beyond her excellence and exterior was a spiritual giantess mother. This won her admiration by all and subsequently propelled her into establishing a reputable fashion business. In her trade, she used to receive instruction and money both spiritually and physically on how to flourish her business.
Many times, in her dream, the giant woman reminded her that it was time for her to return to their kingdom.
The spirit gave her a serious spirit of anger that nearly destroyed her marriage. Anytime she saw her husband, she hated him to the core. Her husband turned to be her biggest enemy. There was no longer affection for her husband. As if that was not enough, the spirit also destroyed her business. One day, she woke up in the morning, sold all the equipment for her business and drove all her workers away. She literally shut her business down. Her husband’s attempt to re-establishing her failed.
In their quest to better their business and achieve financial sustenance, they patronised quite a number of spiritualists to whom they had to pay huge sums of money that ran into tens of million Naira. Alas, their situation went spiralling down. One day, her husband watched Emmanuel TV and prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua and breakthrough started coming into their lives. Having the breakthrough, the Olokors attributed their blessing to the works of a spiritualist, whom they visited and showered with very expensive gifts. One night, Mrs. Olokor had a dream in which someone told her to pray for mercy. It was after that dream that she understood that their breakthrough could not have come from the spiritual direction they had headed.
Finally, the Olokor Family decided to come to The SCOAN for their deliverance. When Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for Mrs Olokor at the Prayer Line, she suddenly lost control of herself. The spirit inside her started manifesting as darkness had no hiding place where there is light. All she could remember was that she was delivered from the spirits that had been tormenting her for so many years. The spirit of anger left her, and peace returned to her heart.
Introducing himself in the person of Magistrate Olokor, the husband of Mrs. Josephine Olokor stated categorically that he was living with his “enemy in the (same) house”. He told people all over the world that, he had had to tolerate his wife’s attitudes for the past 27 years, because he could not fathom the possibility of any other man on earth who could endure what his wife had subjected him to. He recalled how her eyes would bulge red for about a week whenever she became angry. Mr. Olokor would literally had to observe his wife’s eyes for days until they turned normal before he ventured to near her. He recounted how his house caught fire mysteriously a few years after their marriage, which nearly caused them the loss of their last daughter. Whilst she succeeded in shutting down her own promising fashion business, the spirit inside of her also attacked whatever business he engaged himself in.
Their eldest daughter, who also validated the challenges the parents faced, recounted how the mother’s anger and the spiritual attacks turned the house upside down and compromised her own health to the extent she subjected her body to various types of pharmaceutical drugs. She recalled how her mother would sometimes escape into their rooms to pass the night as she was very afraid to sleep alone whenever their father was away.
Thanking God through a fresh breath of freedom, a smiling Mr. Olokor said when they were at the prayer line to receive the touch of God from Prophet T.B. Joshua, he observed how uncomfortable his wife became. He saw how she tried to push back, and readily knew that deliverance was at hand to free the entire family from the torments. And indeed, the God we serve never fails. Following the deliverance, Mr and Mrs Olokor and everything that has to do with them were freed in Jesus’ name. Mr. Olokor said he now experiences a new marriage. He advised people all over the world to love their wives and dedicate their marriages to God. On her part, Mrs. Josephine Olokor urged viewers all over the world to be mindful of their utterances and what they wish for. The error in her grandmother’s request for a child at a riverside culminated in the spiritual torture she and her entire family suffered.
YOKE OF BEDWETTING SUCCUMBS TO THE POWER OF GOD
Right from childhood, Miss Shevon Nidzi had been battling with the yoke of bedwetting. The young Zimbabwean woman was isolated from relations and friends because, each time she visited them, she would wet the bed and become a subject of public ridicule. For so long, she searched for a solution without success. She had gone to several churches in search of solution but still could not find reprieve. At a stage, she was advised by friends to drink her urine. The urine-drinking theory soon became a colossal failure. Stuck with the problem of bedwetting, the prospect of marriage was far from her wish-list.
When self-effort proved futile, she decided to visit The SCOAN in September, 2016, where she was arranged for the Prayer Line. As she used her faith to put a demand, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her and that marked the end of her problem of bedwetting.
Thanking God during her testimony last Sunday, she advised people all over the world to hold on to God as He never forsakes those who put their trust in Him.
TIES WITH SPIRIT OF WOMAN BROKEN
Miss Doris Ugbaji came to The SCOAN to testify to how God Almighty has set her free from evil spirits that had been dominating her entire life. At the age of 8 years, she noticed that her father used to bring a lot of men to the house and always wondered what they were doing but her father only told her that she was too young to understand. As time went by, she was taken to a river to bath.
As Doris was growing up, her parents sent her to boarding school where she was performing extremely well. At school, she struck friendship with a girl in her class. One midnight, the girl woke her up and started to caress her. Suddenly, an urge from within pushed her to respond and after that night, she realized that her affection had changed – she no longer had any affection for boys but only for girls. Their skewed relationship soon graduated into strings of promiscuity. The relationship between the pair grew so strong to the extent that whenever Doris’ girlfriend saw her with other girls, she fought her, accusing her of being unfaithful. After leaving the boarding school, she continued the same lifestyle with other women. She also developed an intense interest in watching pornography, and started experiencing same-sex encounter in her dreams. After such dreams, Doris would lock herself up indoors and masturbate. She recalled a time when she masturbated for three consecutive days.
Having realised that her lifestyle was actually a problem to herself, she started searching for solution. Her relatives advised her to visit The SCOAN and she did. During the mass prayer, the spirit of woman that had been the root cause of her problem manifested. It was cast out by the Power of God and Doris received her total deliverance. Following her freedom from the spirit of woman, she realized that her lustful desire for women had vanished, thanks to God.
Miss Doris Ugbaji advised viewers all over the world that anyone who has a similar challenge should seek the face of God for solution, in the name of Jesus Christ.
