EVANGELIST EDWARDJesus 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 CROWDChristians 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 MR MORGAN MULILOZambian 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 MROLUSHOLA KOLAWOLEwho 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 ANDIMA MEKONDJO BEATHA & SONMrs 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 MRS ELIZABETH KAMENEMorning 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

SERGENT AUGUSTINE OGBU & FAMILYFor 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!

The Sunday Service of January 18, 2015 at The SCOAN was remarkable in many ways. The atmosphere was divinely electric and as usual the congregation was lively and animated by the pervading expectation of receiving something from Heaven. The uplifting renditions of the choir prepared the minds of worshippers for the deep exhortation that was to follow.
DADDYThe man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, delivered a double-pronged encouragement. One had material but very significant undertones while the other was a scriptural injunction that will always benefit those who walk in the ways of God. Advising people about WATER THERAPY, the man of God highlighted the quintessential nature of water to the life of man. According to the man of God, water is the only drink that has no disadvantages. “There is nothing you drink apart from water that does not have disadvantages. Everything has advantages and disadvantages. There is no man’s natural gift – there is none that does not have disadvantage. It is only God that gives without disadvantage”. This noble quality of water emanated from its therapeutic nature and capacity to act as a cleanser. Water helps flush the system of unwanted waste and equally helps in the regulation of body temperature. Water plays many vital roles in safeguarding the human health and therefore becomes one of the most infallible gifts from God to mankind.

Speaking about GIVING, the man of God delved into the indestructible spiritual essence of giving. However, the man of God explained that in giving, the giver must do so with a pure heart. He/she must give from the heart. It is only on that basis that what is being given becomes useful and capable of attracting blessings from God: “If you give something from your heart, it will bless you that gave it and it will also bless the person you are giving to. If you give something that is not from your heart, you that gave it have nothing to gain and the person you gave it to will receive a curse. If you give something from your heart, you will receive a double portion of what you give. If you give your own time, strength from your heart, double portion of it you will receive. When you get back home and there are possessions that you are not using, sell those things and share them to the poor, see how the Lord will bless you. Sell those possessions and set up a charity and the finger of God will begin to fight for you”.

Concluding, the man of God frowned against money-mongering in its totality, stating that anyone who is looking for money should seek direction from God: “When you are looking for money, you should also look for direction, what sort of money am I looking for?”

On her own part, Evangelist Kemi, whose message preceded that of the man of God, EVANGELIST KEMIspoke on the topic BE A PROBLEM SOLVER. According to her, bearing in mind our roles as witnesses to the world, all Christians should make it a top priority to affect lives positively, especially now that we live in a troubled world where the magnitude of problems has since attained alarming ramifications: “Be a problem solver. We are witnessing to a troubled world. Life is full of challenges. Life is a struggle. Our Lord Jesus Christ wants us to be compassionate; I mean problem solvers. In the world that cares less, we should care more”.

Speaking on the essential nature of Christian life, Evangelist Kemi posited that love is the hallmark of our relationship with others, hence, the Christian must extend love to others just as God gave His only begotten Son to us for the redemption of our sins: “Our position in Christ Jesus is enhanced each time we help someone in trouble. We are called to build our lives around our contribution to one another, ultimately, we are called to respond to all human needs, for that is what love entails. How many lives have you improved? There is no love that does not express itself by giving”.

Echoing the lyrical undertones of the popular Emmanuel TV song YOU ARE A SOLUTION written by Prophet T.B. Joshua and performed by Emmanuel Singers, Evangelist Kemi admonished Christians to remain united in love and realise that we live our lives for one another, carrying one another’s burdens: “I am a solution to your problem, just as you are to mine, in other words, I am because you are and you are because I am. There are many people on the sickbed in the hospitals around you, go there, visit them and show them your love and compassion. Who knows – that may be that is all needed for their recovery. Pray with them and pray for them, by doing this, you are not only helping to solve someone else’s problem, you may discover who you are thereby.”

In a final coda, Evangelist Kemi made a clarion call on Christians to remain focused in the bid to make positive impact on the world around them: “Adopting a lifestyle that is on purpose provides an opportunity to enrich others by leaving your imprint in a positive way”.

During Mass Prayer, the man of God prayed along with the congregation as he led them to command the light of God into their lives. He commanded all immoral spirits out in Jesus’ name. He also enjoined viewers all over the world to act in faith by praying along with him for their salvation through Christ Jesus: “Let there be light in my health, eyes, ears, throat, tongue, nose, mouth, in Jesus’ name! Every spirit of addiction, immorality, fornication, lust, begin to command them out, in the name of Jesus Christ! Every spirit from your past that is hindering your present and your future, command them out, in Jesus Christ’s name! Viewers, whatever medium you are using to view us, right now, be connected in the name of Jesus.”

TESTIMONIES
At The SCOAN, God continually fills the hearts of His children with joy and their mouths with laughter. He puts new songs on their lips to demonstrate the endlessness of His grace. He has wiped away their tears with His mighty hands and has restored them to their glory through Christ Jesus. The following testimonies prove that He is not far from you. You too can be a joyful partaker of His grace by faith in Jesus’ name.

FAMILY CURSE OF SICKLE CELL ANAEMIA BROKEN!
MRS ABELA BARONGA KAMARA [SICKLE CELL ANAEMIAMrs. Abela Baronga Kamara from Tanzania was diagnosed with sickle cell anaemia at 20 years of age. She had four children and all of them had the problem of sickle cell anaemia. Due to this problem, she spent all of her time in the hospital because it was either she fell sick or one of her children would fell sick.

Her son, Ericson was constantly visiting hospitals instead of attending school and as a result, he was coming last in his class. After ministering the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name, he was healed of sickle cell anaemia and went from last place to first in his class. They went to the hospital and conducted a test and to their surprise he was negative to sickle cell anaemia. Equally Mrs. Abela also had a test done after ministering the Anointing Water and she was declared free of sickle cell anaemia. They had used a lot of injections and medications every day and spent a lot of money but all that is now a thing of the past. Medical reports were shown as evidence of their healing. Ericson and his mother are now happy that they are healed and gave thanks to Jesus Christ with a song during The SCOAN live Sunday service.
They advised Christians to be problem solvers. “The more you share, the more God will bless you”.

BELGIUM POLITICIAN LIBERATED AND RESTORED TO GLORY
Mr. Christopher Oliha, a Nigerian living in Belgium is a politician in Belgium. He MR CHRISTOPHER OLIHA DELIEVERD FROM SMOKING MARIJUANAwas elected in 2006 as a Councillor. He has contested for Senate and Parliament and other public offices in Belgium. He is well known in Belgian politics. Suddenly, everything started collapsing. He lost his job as a Councillor; his mum died and he suffered an addiction of smoking marijuana for 36 years. He thought he needed to smoke it to speak in public and give lectures. In addition to this, the addiction to smoking marijuana made him very aggressive and affected his relationship with people. He would drive long hours travelling to neighbouring countries just to get marijuana to smoke. His friends nicknamed him ‘marijuana’. He would buy it in cartons and store them in his house.

He came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water and ministered it on himself in Jesus’ name and received his deliverance. When he went to his country, his friend who was also addicted visited him and asked if he could bring some marijuana for him and to his surprise, he realized that he had not smoked it for many weeks and there was no craving for it. After the Anointing Water delivered him from the addiction to smoking marijuana, things began to go well in his life. 25 years ago, he had tried to stop, but he fell ill for 2 weeks and went back to the addiction and it became worse. A few weeks later, the chairman of his party called and said the person in the position of Councillor had resigned and the other two candidates who were supposed to fill the post declined and he was automatically re-elected as a Councillor. He advised Christians to seek God’s help because He is reachable anywhere, adding that, “God that did it for me will do it in your lives in Jesus’ name.”

HEALED AND REVIVED TO VICTORY
Setback and hardship were the order of the day for Mr. Richard Robert from Tanzania. He had a sad story to tell anytime people asked him of his wellbeing. Firstly, his chemical business was almost on the rocks with no profit in sight. And as if that was not enough, he became afflicted with a debilitating sickness – lumbar spondylosis. Excruciating pain limited him to his bed for two years. He could not even stand up, let alone carry out his business activities efficiently. His two children were crying every day for their father. It was not only seeing him in pain that made them cry; their academic prospects also looked bleak as he was not in a position to provide for them. They wanted to go to university and pursue their education overseas. All this became a distant dream and faint hope. MR RICHARD ROBERT [A

When the road became roughest and he had almost run out of rope, he grabbed onto faith and made a trip to The SCOAN. Privileged to receive the Anointing Water and Sticker, he claimed by faith that he would be healed and be able to get two cars! On getting back to Tanzania, it was as if he was a different person living a different life entirely. His business began to boom and within a short period, he was not only able to purchase two cars but four! The pain in his back vanished and he was able to do everything with strength and vigour. Now, he has purchased three plots of land and is building a family house. His son is studying Petroleum Engineering in Canada and his daughter is doing a degree in World Trade in China. The victory in Christ Jesus he has received is victory indeed. The rest is history!

HEALED OF SPIRITUAL FOOD POISONING, LIVER AND KIDNEY DAMAGE
PRINCE AYODELE OJO DELIEVERED FROM EVIL ATTACKSPrince Ayodele Ojo Arimoro suffered from serious evil attacks for two years in which he would eat continuously in his dreams. It got to the extent that if he tried to resist, it was as if someone would force the food into his mouth. The problem worsened as time went on. During the day, he would doze off in his office and be fed in his dreams. Physically, the problem affected his health. He began experiencing severe pain in his body and his system systematically broke down. When he went to the toilet, he would defecate pure blood and even the doctors were worried because his blood count was reducing. Overwhelmed with pain and agony, he complained to people around him and was advised to visit native doctors and herbal homes.

He started moving from one herbalist to another and in no time, he had sampled almost all the herbalists in the country but his problem persisted; none could provide a solution to his problem. A ‘Good Samaritan’ then told him about Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV. He decided to give it a try and installed Emmanuel TV. He began watching Emmanuel TV and one day, he had a dream where Prophet T.B. Joshua came to him and laid hands on his head and he vomited three fresh leaves. Prophet T.B. Joshua then said, “It is over”. When he woke up from the dream, he was convinced that his healing laid in Jesus Christ, so he came to The SCOAN.

He came to The SCOAN with the problem of severe liver and kidney damage. When Prophet T.B. Joshua laid hands on him, he lost consciousness for a moment. The next second, he realized that his body felt lighter and he immediately went to the toilet. He passed out faeces with clots of blood and he knew within him that the sickness was over. Before the prayer, he could not stand or walk by himself because he was so PRINCE AYODELE OJO DELIEVERED FROM EVIL ATTACKS1.JPGweak. People had to assist him with everything, even with going to the toilet and bathing. But now, his strength has been totally restored and his health has been captured for the glory of God. The nightly food has become a thing of the past and his dreams are now of breakthrough, success and victory.

Advising Christians, he observed “Your solution lies in Christ only. I spent huge amounts of money in herbal and ritual homes without solution but freely, I received my complete healing and deliverance at The SCOAN”.

RIDING THE WAVE OF PROMOTION IN A BRAND NEW CAR
“My joy knows no bounds” – this was the beaming confession of Inspector Osamede Egtharevba of the Lagos State Police Command as she proudly stood at The SCOAN INSPECTOR OSAMEDE EGTHAREVBA2 [Aauditorium to share her testimony. This had not always been the case though. Instead of joy, sadness and bitterness had plagued her days. The last five years seemed like a lifetime as each day she met frustration and setback in her career. She watched many who had joined the force after her and had less experience climb the ladder of promotion without any effort while she painstakingly remained on step one. Her husband was equally saddened at the stagnant state of his wife’s career. He discovered Emmanuel TV and introduced her to it in hope and faith for a new dawn in their lives. Although, unsure at first, Mrs. Egtharevba followed in her husband’s footsteps and one day, they came to The SCOAN.

As she received the Anointing Water, she felt a weight lifted from her shoulders. INSPECTOR OSAMEDE EGTHAREVBA1 [AWith faith rising, she ministered it on herself and believed in the faithfulness and trustworthiness of God. By faith, she put the new rank on her uniform believing her promotion was around the corner. True to her faith, she was called to the police station and received a promotion which was backdated. She is now an Inspector of Police! As she was considering the challenges of acquiring a new car to compliment the position, out of the blue, a friend invited her to a car dealer and told her to choose any car she liked as she would buy it for her! She chose a small car but the friend immediately replaced it with a big expensive car stating that she deserved the best. Unable to contain her tears of joy, Inspector Osamede proudly showed off her promotion photos and her brand new car!

I COULD WALK FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SIX MONTHS!
JESSE GANUN BASKETBALLER HEALED FROM DIFFICULTY IN WALKING USING CRUTCHES1A boisterous basketball career nipped in the bud by a burdening injury. At the tender age of 17, Jesse faced an enormous setback in his sporting pursuits after a stress fracture in his left tibia left hopes practically in tatters. Specialist doctors in America frowned upon inspection, informing the young Sudanese-American that a surgical operation was required and further cautioning him that a full recovery was not guaranteed. Jesse Ganun could not place any weight whatsoever on his left leg and was forced to move around with a pair of crutches. For six months, his bed became both a daily and nocturnal companion.

As an avid Emmanuel TV viewer, he resolved with his mum to make the long journey from America to Nigeria to visit The SCOAN for prayer. Arriving on Sunday morning, Jesse was among the thousands of congregants who were privileged to receive the Anointing Water alongside the recently introduced ‘Good Morning’ Anointing Sticker. That night, in their hotel room, Jesse ministered the Anointing Water to his affected leg. In that miraculous instant, the pain disappeared! Deciding to sleep and test his leg the following day, Jesse placed the ‘Good Morning’ Anointing Sticker on his leg.

TB JoshuaThe Live Saturday and Sunday Services started like any other service in the past, but there was a huge package of surprises in the unfolding. True to The SCOAN culture, the service was inundated with interesting testimonies of healings, breakthroughs, mending of relationships and deliverance from demonic attacks. As can be seen from the accounts rendered hereon, the Anointing Water which is one medium God has so endowed the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua with to foster his ministry of healing and deliverance from evil influences has continued to bless people in every area of their needs. Encouraged by the great testimonies resulting from the use of the Anointing Water and the Anointing Stickers, Prophet T.B. Joshua decided to further bless the congregation, indeed the world with yet a new branded Anointing Water and a pair of Anointing Stickers with an improved booklet that explains the nitty-gritty and the origin of these blessed products. After a powerful and inspiring sermon delivered by Wise man Harry on the subject ‘No Neutral Source,’ Prophet T.B. Joshua addressed two major issues dealing with peoples’ misconception of appearances as opposed to true godliness. In summary he said that ‘Faith is of man’s spirit, not of his flesh or body’. Then, came the big surprise: Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke briefly of his upcoming 50th Birthday which falls on June 12. He said that God had inspired him to bless the people in a very special way to mark the occasion and he went ahead to distribute the new branded Anointing Water and a couple of beautiful Anointing Stickers freely to all. God Almighty and the heavenly hosts endorsed the release and confirmed that the prophet’s action was indeed ordered from above. This was evidenced by uncontrollable manifestations of people that came in contact with the Anointing Water and the Anointing Stickers even before ministering them. Indeed, God is still with us.
Sermon By Wise man Harry
Life is a warfare. In a warfare, there are many battles to fight.WISE MAN HARRY When you look at people today, you will see that some are battling with their bills, some with their sickness, while some are fighting to make it in life. It takes the grace of God to realize that the way you fight these battles determines who you are before God. Just as there are two sides to a coin, so also there are two sources in this world: God and satan. Whether you believe it or not, there is no neutral source because there is no neutral kingdom. You can become great in life, in terms of position, money and fame, but the source of your greatness will be either from God or satan. Genesis 14:14-16,21-23. This is all about Father Abraham and his determination to make God Almighty his only source.
To be great born of God is to derive your resources from God, while to be great born of satan is to derive your resources from satan.
When God is the source of your strength, no one can be against you. When God is the source of your strength, you and God are majority. Abram, with the help of God, was able to defeat his enemies and recover all the goods and set the captives free.

One thing we need to remember is that Satan’s greatest interest is to overthrow our relationship to God as a Father. To do that, satan always uses our situation. This is why we should not be misled by our situation. Our situation could be poverty or sickness. Outward affliction and poverty are the great arguments satan uses to disturb the children of God. Therefore, as children of God, it is better to live poorly on the fruits of God’s goodness than to live plentifully upon the products of our own sin. Remember that everything big starts little. If anything big starts big, it calls for concern. Those who fail to take these tiny steps cannot trust God and understand the basic truth about faith.
Testimonies:
CHRONIC CASE OF BEDWETTING HEALED
MR AWALLU GABOH -DELIVERED OF BEDWETTINGMr Awallu Gaboh, a muslim had the problem of bedwetting and frequent urination for twenty years. It all started when a spirit being possessed him, which came and made love to him. The problem had made it impossible for him to get married or visit friends. His relations and friends could not understand why he would not marry. He visited several herbalists in search of solution but to no avail. Then, a friend of his gave him the Anointing Water which he ministered on his male organ and all over his body. When the spiritual wife attempted to force herself on him, he noticed that a very powerful ray of light was covering him and preventing the lady from coming close to him. After many attempts, she gave up and left. Since then, he has been free from the chronic case of bedwetting of over 20 years. Being a muslim, he said it was the first time he had entered a church (The SCOAN) but as he saw the way Prophet T.B. Joshua had treated people from all religions, he felt welcomed. He said that Prophet T.B. Joshua was sent to everyone regardless of their religion. He also changed his mind concerning getting married, stating that it was now possible.
BARRENNESS AND ALCOHOLISM STOPPED
Mr Abu Abdulazeez from Benue State had been childless for many years after marriage. The medical report stated their diagnosis of bacterial infection but his wife often told him that a certain spiritual man used to sleep with her and make love to her in the dream. Mr. Abdulazeez who is a military personnel, had the problem of addiction to alcohol for thirty-one years and could drink more than three cartons of beer in a single day and toMR ABU ABDULAZEEZ & WIFE -BARRENNESS & ALCHOLISM STOPPED worsen his situation, he always spent time in the company of his colleagues who were also habitual drinkers. After each drinking spree, he would usually lose his cell phone and end up being helped home in a state of stupor. He had attempted to quit the habit on his own but could not. He was always late to work on account of the drunkenness. On one occasion, he sleep-walked into an unfamiliar bush due to the effect of alcohol until he was saved by a man who told him that he had travelled close to Kogi State very far away from Abuja, his planned destination. He was also in the habit of returning home late at nights. He had lost three of his cars due to accidents resulting from drunkenness. One fateful day, he visited a friend and joined them in watching Emmanuel TV. He was astonished to see cases of drunkenness being delivered through the prayer of the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. He joined in the prayer by placing his hand on the screen of the television. He invited his wife to place her hand on the television and she did. As soon as she placed her hand, she fell down and started manifesting. Soon after, his wife conceived. For himself, he tried to visit his former beer parlour where he ordered for a bottle of beer but it tasted of bitters and he had to spit it out. Since then, his addiction of 31 years stopped. Today, the wife is pregnant. Mr Abdulazeez does not visit beer parlours anymore and they now enjoy a very peaceful home.
YOUNG MAN DELIVERED FROM DEMONIC KINGDOM AND DISCONNECTED FROM SECRET CULTS
MR INNOCENT OLUCHI OCHIA -DELIVERED FROM SECRET CULTSMr Innocent Oluchi Chidozie Ochia – Imo State, Nigeria was an active member of some number of secret cults for many years. He is a graduate of Federal Polytechnic, Nekede in Imo State. He was an ardent church goer and a choir boy until one of his relations introduced him to various brands of drugs. They were into the music industry and those drugs were supposed to make him feel good and bold while on stage. Ironically, the influence of those drugs erased every passion for the things of God and he developed apathy to Christian music. He could consume large doses of those drugs every day and had to spend much of his pocket money in acquiring them. On one occasion, he had concealed himself behind the counter of a bar, smoking his weed and playing music very loud. Three beings appeared to him right there and one of them said that it could pick up his thoughts. He did not believe the being, and spoke in silence to test him. The beings responded correspondingly to prove that they could actually read his mind. They told him that they could discern that he wanted to be famous and that they could help him get to the top of his career. He asked to be helped. One of the beings stripped off and to his surprise, he saw that it was tattooed from the neck to the groin region. They started an initiation process and were making noises as if in a sex orgy. He could not stand the sight any longer and decided to walk away. He was threatened with premature death in four days if he walked out on them. He, however, tried to submit to the initiation. Back at the Polytechnic, his life took a different form. He could hear voices and interpret lyrics that he never was part of their making. He became fearless. He had no money but could get just whatever he wanted so long as he was dressed in a peculiar spiritual fashion that those beings had recommended. When he sang on stage and off-stage, he could hold people in trance and those who were unable to stand the situation had to run away. The drug addiction got so bad that he had to be sent to rehab. His academic career started diminishing. He never prayed and refused to pay his tithes any longer. He preferred to do his chores on the Sabbath day instead. He hated the things of God. Incidentally, he was invited to The SCOAN to witness the testimony of one of his aunts who had been delivered from demonic influence. He felt very uncomfortable in the church and would rather have some cigarettes and alcohol. During prayer by Wise man Daniel, he was arrested and felt the separation from the spiritual beings that had tormented him. The pain he felt on his leg also disappeared after he was touched and prayed for by the wise man. He advises the youths in particular that if they would make Heaven, they should avoid worldly affections such as smoking, doing drugs, drinking and lustfulness – telling them that Jesus Christ was not a womanizer or a drug addict.
He now enjoys reading the Bible and is eager to receive the Word of God that will inspire him.

SON OF A POPULAR NOLLYWOOD ACTRESS AND MUSICIAN DELIVERED FROM DEMONIC KINGDOM
Mr Samuel Freedom is the son of Camilla, a renowned Nollywood actress. He said he came to The SCOAN after his mother had been delivered of evil attacks and connection to the marine kingdom. He says that in a prophecy given to her by Prophet T.B. Joshua, his mother was asked where her son was. She responded that he was in Enugu and the man of God said he should be brought to The SCOAN. Previously, he had been practicing house to houseMR SAMUEL FREEDOM -SON OF NOLLYWOOD ACTRESS evangelism and praying for the sick with signs following, though he had never been delivered himself. He confessed that during that period, he had an affair with a lady from the same church where he worshipped. Thereafter, his spiritual life took a downward turn. He experienced some career failure and stagnation. Nothing was working for him; he became depressed and often heard a voice telling him to commit suicide. He began looking for alternatives; he started listening to worldly music and doing street dance. He formed a dance group and they wanted to create new moves. They researched online and found different demonic signs which they formulated into dance moves. He would have dreams where demons would teach him dance steps. He would then in turn teach others how to dance in that way. He wanted to get money; so, he searched on the internet and found the Illuminati website; he read everything on the website and saw the face of the master of the Illuminati. His first experience was an encounter with the master in a dream. The master appeared in the form of a serpent and then later transformed into a human being, giving him instructions. Thereafter, he started using some of those signs that represented Illuminati in dance steps on stage, but participants never got to know that those dance steps were glorifying demons and initiating them into the kingdom of darkness. The more the people adopted the dance steps, the more they were tormented by demons. He had a shirt with the Illuminati insignia, which he usually wore especially on stage. He had a computer game known as Prince of Persia which he always played during the day. At night, he would see himself as the character from the video game, the Prince of Persia, flying, fighting and doing everything the character in the game was doing. He was in the habit of masturbating even though he detested the act and would regret it later.
He eventually came to The SCOAN and was delivered after prayer from Wise Man Christopher. He no longer has the urge to masturbate, smoke or drink. He advised parents to keep objects of bad moral influence away from their children. He advised youth not to download worldly music on their phones. His advice to pastors was to run to God for mercy for He is a merciful God.
A NIGHTCLUB DEEJAY IS NOT WHAT I WAS CALLED TO BE
PASTOR PHILIP ONYEKACHUKWU- BROTHER TO CAMILLAPastor Philip Onyekachukwu of Prince of Peace Ministries International and brother of Ms Camilla, the popular Nollywood actress, said he had received a call of God and then when his finances were down, he backslid to become a nightclub Deejay. He said he was not properly taught how to maintain his walk with the Lord. He could not pay his school fees and had to abandon the ministry. He had a dream where two women put their hands inside his chest after
which he became sick. He went from one place to another in search of a solution to his sickness which doctors were unable to diagnose. Later, he returned to being a pastor, though he acknowledged that he did so without being delivered. Consequently, he experienced setback in his ministry. He said that the church would grow and then later scatter. He would also hear voices rebuking him, telling him he was never going to make it and that the church was going down. He came to The SCOAN where he was prayed for by one of the wise men and received his deliverance. He said after his deliverance, he no longer heard negative voices and also the pain he had in his body was gone.
NOLLYWOOD ACTRESS WENT THROUGH THOROUGH SCREENING
Mrs Camilla, a Senior Nollywood Actress for 29 years said she didn’t have a hand in how, where and when she was born. She decided who she wanted to be when she came to The SCOAN. Many of her colleagues had discouraged her from coming to The SCOAN. She said, “Many of them are scared of coming to be screened by the Holy Ghost”. According to the actress, she was delivered at The SCOAN and also received a prophecy concerning her son. She brought him to The SCOAN together with her brother (Pastor Philip Onyekachukwu) for deliverance. She said she came for God to change her spiritual occasion from sin to holiness and she got it. She encouraged all to seek the face of God.
THE TRUTH ABOUT TATTOOS REVEALED
JOHN BOSCO TATTOO MANJohn Bosco from Cameroon gave a testimony of how he had a tooth problem and a woman had advised him to apply snuff tobacco as a solution to the problem. The effect of the tobacco made him feel high in spirit. He became addicted to it and eventually became very sick and lost a lot of weight. He was diagnosed with tuberculosis and gastric ulcer and reached rock bottom in life. One night, he had a dream whereby he saw the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua in his dream who prayed for him. Soon after the dream, he had a full recovery from his sicknesses and was restored back to his original self. To add to his blessing, he was also offered a good job from an offshore company with good pay and his life experienced a dramatic turnaround for the better. He was so overjoyed at the healing and blessing he received that he asked himself what he could do to

say, “Thank you”. He then called a tattoo artist and asked him to design a tattoo for him written, “Jesus Is Lord, T.B. Joshua My Prophet”. He had the tattoo inscribed across his shoulder. As he developed interest in studying the Scriptures, he came to a portion in the Book of Leviticus 19:28, which spoke against the act of putting marks of any sort on the body and immediately regretted doing the tattoo. He was so disturbed in his mind that he sent an email to the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua asking what he could do. The prophet then invited him to The SCOAN.
After sharing his experience, the man of God addressed the issue. “Just see it as one of those things on your body, not for God. If you see it like that, press forwards to serve God in Spirit and in truth. Don’t see it as a way of pleasing God. Don’t let it disturb you anymore. Put it behind you. Since you can’t remove it, leave it and continue to serve God.”
Prophet T.B. Joshua further said, “Faith is of man’s spirit, not of his flesh or body”. He advised the man that he should see the tattoo as something for his body and not for God. He said now that he had realized it was wrong, he should put it behind him and seek God. He said the tattoo had no meaning to God and is not to please God. He also advised Christians who already had tattoos and wanted to remove them, not to have them surgically removed as this was a trap of satan, which could lead to other skin complications. He concluded by saying that when we worship God in Spirit and truth, whatever we have put on our body is nullified.
MODIFY YOUR CULTURE TO SUIT CHRIST’S IDEOLOGY
DEACON DANIIEL EMOGHAWEI & WIFEDeacon Daniel Emoghawei came to The SCOAN and received a prophecy. Prophet T.B. Joshua asked him about his wife and had spoken concerning the conflict at home and the spirit of anger. Today, Deacon Daniel Emoghawei came back together with his wife to confirm the prophecy. He explained that the cause of most conflicts in the house was regarding his wife’s clothing and makeup. As a deacon, he didn’t like to see his wife with revealing clothes and heavy makeup. He further told the prophet that even on their wedding day, they had fought concerning the same matter. Apart from that, according to the husband, the wife had the spirit of anger that caused her to argue and get angry unnecessarily. His wife also spoke, complaining that they would always quarrel and never agree on anything in the house. She further said that her husband would beat her and this had heightened the tension in the marriage.
Listening to their story, Prophet T.B. Joshua expressed his belief from God’s point of view that God is Spirit and that those who want to worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and truth. Therefore, for God to hear, help or answer us, we must talk to Him in Spirit but the problem people have is that many have not been dealing with God in Spirit but in the natural.
Prophet T.B. Joshua explained that there was nothing wrong in putting on makeup but that our ideology and culture must be modified to suit Christ’s ideology. He added that if someone has the spirit of lust, whether he or she applies makeup or not does not make any difference because it is a spiritual matter and can only be resolved through being delivered.
He asked them what their position was concerning the marriage. They both said that they still loved each other as husband and wife but just wanted the conflict in their marriage to stop. Prophet T.B. Joshua encouraged the couple that there could be no understanding without misunderstanding. He said that if you ask any successful couple today about their experiences, they would tell you that they passed through the shadow of death before they arrived at a successful marriage. T.B. Joshua concluded by advising, “There is a time to fight and there is a time to embrace each other. No matter what happens, God has something to say, even in a broken situation. Therefore, we should always ask for God’s opinion concerning all things”.
The new brand of Anointing Water was officially launched. People were falling under the anointing of God upon receiving the new Anointing Water and Stickers. Inspired by the Spirit of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave out The New Anointing Water and Stickers for free to the congregation both inside and outside the auditorium as his 50th Birthday gift and in dedication to the blessed memory of his mother on the occasion of this year’s Mothers Day celebration.
The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave the grace for the congregation to receive the rebranded Anointing Water and Stickers for the first time after their official launch today. Excitement and shouts of joy rented the atmosphere as the long-awaited release was announced by the prophet. As soon as the Anointing Water and Stickers were given out freely to the congregation, people began to shake, roll on the floor and vomit out dangerous substances that had been lodged in their system, under the power of God. They hadn’t even opened the packaging before Jesus Christ began to work in their situation. Mrs Towoju from Kwara State, Nigeria was among many who after merely receiving the New Anointing Water and Sticker received a miracle. She came out to testify that God healed her of a stroke after merely collecting a bottle of the Anointing Water along with the Anointing Sticker. Glory be to God!
Ifeoma had suffered serious headaches but immediately the Anointing Water and Sticker were given to her, just by merely touching the packaging, caused her to fall under the anointing of God and receive her healing. Upon getting up from the floor, she realized that God had performed the miracle. No more headaches!

tbjThe Saturday and Sunday services at The SCOAN , February 9-10, 2013, were attended by people with a passion for the presence of God from all over the world. The services were marked by the astounding healings and hard-hitting deliverances in Jesus’ name, sounding a strong spiritual wake up call to an unbelieving generation wallowing in the gloom of their circumstances and adding to the continual joy of those being saved. The Sunday programme anchored on prophecies to individuals as revealed by Prophet T.B. Joshua and the laying on of hands by the Wise Men, punctuated by glorious testimonies given by diverse people to attest to the touch of God in their lives.

During the Sunday service, Prophet T.B. Joshua addressed issues peculiar to different countries and people the world over, with many lessons of life to be gleaned from the experiences of individuals concerned and for the sharpening of the like precious faith. He had, in last weeks’ service, asked the congregants to bring to church small flags of their countries for special prayers. They had obeyed and his prayer centred specifically on the socio-political and economic travails in many countries of the world in contemporary times.

Prophet Joshua said that he carried, “the flags of all nations in my heart.” He said Emmanuel TV would rebroadcast the prayer so that people could connect to it and join him to pray for their own land and people. The flags are a symbol and for contact to the nations worldwide and that the congregation should return their flags to their personal altars hereafter for continued supplication.

The man of God mentioned some of the well known ills of society such as injustice, robbery, occultism, corruption, exploitation, child kidnapping and murder, shedding innocent blood, tribal conflicts and political misrule and mismanagement to clearly illustrate the reasons why there was need for prayer for the nations.

Using Jeremiah 1:10 as a proof text, he said representatives of each country had a duty to look up to God for solutions to their particular travails. He asked the believers and viewers all over the world a soul-searching question, “Everybody wants prosperity but how many are ready to do the work of prosperity?” adding that people needed to be honest and sincere in all they do in order to achieve God’s kind of success. His prayers for the nations took the form of a kind of confession. He asked the worshippers worldwide to take the points raised, one by one which were applicable to their nation and seek the Lord Jesus in broken-heartedness. “We are here today to confess all the sins and wrongs of the lands of our ancestors, leaders and the people. We plead for forgiveness and mercy in the name of Jesus.” The prophet prayed that the Lord should save the nations from destruction and judgement. He also prayed, “Lord Jesus, redeem our nations, lands, continents and countries of all the sins we confess and the ones we have not mentioned” – a reference to the body of evils and immoral conducts which he had already listed.

Prophet Joshua also prayed to the Lord Jesus Christ in humility and faith, declaring “I command all the forces of darkness hindering the move of God in our lands, be cast out, in Jesus’ name. We ask for Your deliverance and healing power on our countries.”

MR. PAUL {HEALED FROM FIRE BURH AW} (2)A summary of the spectacular testimonies given to glorify the Lord Jesus and admonish believers all over the world to remain steadfast to the hope they had been entrusted with, are as follows:MR. PAUL {HEALED FROM FIRE BURH AW} (1)

Mr Paul worked in an oil and gas industry. One day, an accident occurred and his leg was burnt with fire. They rushed him to the hospital and the doctors said they needed to amputate his leg. He explained the situation to his friend who came to the hospital with Anointing Water he had received from The SCOAN. After ministering the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name, his leg started to itch. Suddenly, two live maggots came out of his leg. He discovered that as the maggots left, the pain also stopped. The fire burns quickly began to heal and the doctor confirmed that he no longer needed an amputation. To God be the glory – He is the Repairer and Restorer!

Mr Moses, aged 27, came to The SCOAN in need of deliverance from a life of smoking, drinking and patronizing MOSES DELIVERED FROM HEAVY SMOKING & DRINKING AW}prostitutes. He had begun smoking at the young age of 7 years old. This had caused him severe chest pain and nightmares in which people came to beat him in his dreams. One day, a friend came to him with the Anointing Water, advising that he needed a change in his life. He encouraged Mr Moses by telling him that if he put his trust in Jesus Christ, God would wash away his sins and wipe the stain of guilt away from his life. With this belief in his heart, he prayed and ministered the Anointing Water, in Jesus’ name. After prayer, he slept. The next morning, he reached for his morning cigarette. To his surprise, the smell of the cigarette irritated him. He tried smoking but could not. It has now been over three months and he AMOS AUGUSTINE {SAVES FROM ROBBERS AS}has not once smoked, had a drink of any alcohol or visited prostitutes. He gives glory to God and encourages the youth that no matter the lifestyle they have engaged in, Jesus Christ can set them free!

Mr Amos Augustine shared a fantastic testimony of how our God, Jesus Christ rescues, saves and delivers. He said that he always ministered the Anointing Water before going to work and carried the Anointing Water with him wherever he went. One morning, he was attacked by armed robbers. They were threatening his life and property. As the armed robbers collected his wallet, they began shouting that the wallet was burning their hands and threw the wallet back at him demanding that he should open the wallet! Mr Augustine then opened the wallet to see what had caused the fire burns and the Anointing Sticker fell out! Shocked, the armed robbers started shouting and ran off. Truly, God can use any medium to rescue His children! PETER ODEH {ABDOMINAL PAIN & LIVER PROBLEM THROUGH AW}

Mr Peter, a soldier serving his country, Nigeria told his wonderful testimony of how Jesus Christ had healed him through the Anointing Water from a terrible liver problem. He was in terrible pain and discomfort as he had been diagnosed with liver enlargement which caused a swollen stomach. The problem was so severe that he was booked for an operation. Believing for a miracle, he received the Anointing Water and ministered it, in Jesus’ name. The next day, he began vomiting and black substances came out of his system. To his surprise, his stomach became normal! He went back to the doctor and was confirmed to be perfectly healthy. There was no trace of an enlarged liver. The astonished doctor asked him, “Which medication did you use?” Replying with a ZIRA YOHANNA {SAVED FROM 17 YEARS DRINKING AW}smile, Mr Peter responded that it was God’s doing through the Anointing Water. Glory to God! Speaking to the congregation, he said, “God has given me another opportunity. He has given me another chance. Doctors can treat; only Jesus can heal.”

In his own words, Mr Zira Yohana, an agent in the petroleum industry, was a “professional drunkard”. He said he could drink between five to six cartons of alcohol a day. For 17 years, he was inflicted with the severe problem of intoxication and lamented how he used to beat his wife after drinking alcohol. He also said that nobody could ‘out drink’ him when it came to alcohol. One day, he told his friend about his bad habit and his friend gave him the Anointing Water. After ministering the Anointing Water, the urge to drink alcohol left him completely. His life has been radically transformed and he is now an example to all. He advised everyone to seek forgiveness from God in order to stop their bad habits.

Mr Samson from Cameroon ran an organization that cared for widows and orphans. They occupied a building where their charitable activities were held. One day, they were reported to the authorities by a group of people who claimed they were inhabiting the building illegally. As a result of this report, everyone in the organization was arrested and put in prison. He appealed the court’s decision many times but his attempts to gain his freedom were to no avail. He knew that he had been imprisoned innocently. In prison, he had the opportunity to view Emmanuel TV. He began to watch it regularly and prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. He repeated the prayer point of the man of God who stated that all who were imprisoned by contrary forces should be released, in Jesus’ name. Believing that his prayer had been answered, he sent another appeal to the magistrate for release. Three days later, the magistrate called him and gave him a letter of release! He says that if he had not been watching Emmanuel TV and joining the anointed prayer with Prophet T.B. Joshua, he would still be in prison today. He advised all who found themselves in MR. NNADOZIE CHILAKA {DELIVERED FROMHEAVY SMOKING AW}desperate situations to look to Jesus Christ for their freedom and vindication. He is the freedom provider!

Mr Nnadozie was a chain smoker for 16 years. This caused him serious chest pain, heart burn and cough. He spent a fortune on cigarettes as he smoked 5 packs a day. He would go to church with cigarettes and excuse himself during the service to smoke. He would even go to the restroom with cigarettes! The day he resolved to give up, the urge actually increased and he smoked 10 packs! The problem became worse. When he came to The SCOAN, he was also carrying a packet of cigarettes with him. For some reason, however, he did not feel the urge to smoke throughout the entire service. He received the Anointing Water and ministered it, in Jesus’ name after the service. A moment later, he tried to light a cigarette but felt like acid was running down his throat. He started to vomit black substances and from that moment on, the urge to smoke disappeared! Thanking God for the wonderful PASTOR & MRS. PATRICK CLAIRE ETUK {PREGNANT  WITH FALLOPIAN TUBES THROUGH AW} (2)miracle, he said that even the smell of smoke irritates him now. Surely there is nothing Jesus cannot do.

Pastor and Mrs Patrick shared their incredible testimony. Mrs Patricia Patrick had suffered not one but two ectopic pregnancies that had been very traumatic for her. In the course of this problem, she underwent an operation and both of her fallopian tubes were removed, making it medically impossible for her to conceive.  Still believing that God would show Himself strong in her seemingly hopeless situation, Pastor Patrick came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water. PASTOR & MRS. PATRICK CLAIRE ETUK {PREGNANT  WITH FALLOPIAN TUBES THROUGH AW} (1)She prayed together with her husband, ministered the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name and the mother of miracles happened! After prayer, they met as husband and wife and Mrs Patrick became pregnant! They went to the hospital for a checkup and the doctors were amazed to find that both of the fallopian tubes had been totally restored!  Full of joy, Mrs Patrick told the viewers and congregation, “My advice to women who might have lost hope: The same God who restored my two tubes which were cut off, shall surely visit you, in Jesus’ name”.

MR. JOSEPH {SAVED FROM BULLETSOF ARMED ROBBERS}Mr Joseph Genesis shared his testimony of God’s supernatural protection through the medium of the Anointing Water. He suddenly found himself caught in a surprise attack from armed robbers. Seven armed men descended on him and pulled out guns to kill him, not knowing that he was armed with a superior weapon! That morning, he had ministered the Anointing Water on his body before leaving his house. He stated that the power of God in the Anointing Water created a protective shield over him and due to the Anointing Water, the bullets that were fired on him could not enter him! The armed robbers could not believe their eyes. Filled with courage at the supernatural protection, Mr Joseph began to spray the Anointing Water towards the armed robbers and they ran away in defeat. Proudly showing himself to the world that he had escaped without a scratch, Mr Joseph said, “The Anointing Water is a bullet to the wicked, evil spirits!”

Chief Superintendant of Police John Mark, a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in Anambra, Nigeria came out to testify how God had touched the lives of police men in his division after he shared with them the Anointing Water he had received at The SCOAN. Two of his police officers accompanied him to The SCOAN to share their testimonies. Mr Sunday Idris, a policemen under CSP John Mark, had suffered from the embarrassing affliction of bedwetting for two years. When he received the Anointing Water, he prayed, believing that God would put an end to his suffering. After that prayer, he testified that that chain of affliction had been broken and bedwetting was a thing of the past in his life! Mr Phillip then came forward with his wife and twins, Emmanuel and Emmanuela to thank God for the miraculous release of their son Emmanuel after he was kidnapped. Armed robbers took the child and later called, demanding a ransom of N20million, an impossible amount of money for Mr Phillip to raise. The father ran straight to his DPO, John Mark. In response to the devastating news, Mr Mark gave him the Anointing Water and told him to minister it in faith, in MRS. OGWE JULIET {SAVED FROM ARMED ROBBERS THROUGH ETV}Jesus’ name. One day after he ministered the Anointing Water in prayer, local police were given a tip off to the robber’s location. Emmanuel was recovered uninjured that very day and returned to his parents! A national Nigerian newspaper covered the story of the robber’s capture, terming Emmanuel’s release as ‘miraculous’!

Mrs Ogwe Juliet, a Nigerian living in Cameroon told the world of her amazing testimony of how the Anointing Water had saved her from an armed robbery operation while onboard a ship from Cameroon to Nigeria. When the ship alarm was raised, alerting that thieves were in their midst, Mrs Juliet quickly remembered the Anointing Water and sprayed it over herself, in Jesus’ name. The ship was in a state of confusion as the thieves were robbing everyone in the ship. Amazingly, Mrs Ogwe Juliet was left in peace as the armed robbers seemed not to even notice her. A man who was also present on the ship took his money out of his pockets and placed it on top of one of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s sermons which he had received from The SCOAN. He offered it to the armed robbers, saying, “Here is my money; take it” but the armed robbers refused to take his money! Speaking to the congregation and viewers, Mrs Ogwe Juliet said, “Don’t call it ordinary water; it is anointed. There is power in it – the power of God. The power of God is above all powers”.

Mr Azawei Alanuene, a university lecturer, gave his testimony of how God had taken him from a nobody to somebody. Eating from hand to mouth for 10 years, his life was a constant struggle but when he ministered the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name, his destiny turned around! After prayer, he was suddenly called by his supervisor and told that he had been granted a scholarship to further his research by studying a PhD in The University of Nottingham, UK. He travelled to the UK for the course, continued ministering the Anointing Water over himself and his coursework and conducted ground breaking research in his specialized area. To his surprise, he was selected to present the findings of his PhD research in an MR & MRS WAZIRI {17 YRS ALCOHOLISM THROUGH ETV}international conference in China.  Glory be to God!

Mr Waziri from Taraba, Nigeria was addicted to drinking alcohol for 17 years and could drink up to 14 bottles a day. He did not see the need or have the desire to stop but one day after watching Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV prophesying to a man about the very same drinking problem, he realized his need for freedom.  As Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for the viewers, he stretched his hand and touched the screen in prayer. Instantly, the desire to drink left him and he was completely delivered in the power of the Holy Spirit. After that prayer, everything about his life was transformed. His health, business, marriage and joy were restored! Even his appearance changed as his once large belly, due to excessive drinking, shrunk back to normal. Advising those who are desperately in need of a solution, he quoted the words of Prophet T.B. Joshua, saying, “If you have run out of rope, it is time to grab onto faith!”  Hallelujah! There is no bad habit, addiction or negative lifestyle that cannot be broken, conquered and defeated by Jesus Christ!

All in all, we are reminded that the main thing about Christianity is not the work we do for God but the relationship we maintain and the atmosphere produced by that relationship. Our work for God is a reflection of our relationship with Him. We should therefore, take time to develop our relationship with the Holy Spirit by daily reading our Bibles with devotion and making the Word of God the standard for our lives.

THE SECRET OF FAITH

In a message that was briefly started during the live Saturday service and firmly continued during the Sunday Service, Prophet T.B. Joshua unveiled, in his own words, ‘The Secret Of Faith.’ In the message, he said, “Jesus Christ is the surety of every Word from Matthew 1 to Revelation 22. No Word from God is void of fulfilment for God watches over His Word to perform it. If any Scripture should go by default, Jesus becomes responsible.”

Speaking of the bold confidence a believer has to approach the throne of grace in prayers and supplication, he added, “When you know that the Lord is on your side, your heart becomes quiet. You look up into His face and whisper your request and you know it is going to be granted because it is your Father who is on the throne, it is your Lord who is seated by His side.”

He concluded that faith was not abstract as it could be practiced and told the congregation that despite the challenges life would throw at them, faith was there for them through it all. “In your challenges in life, faith is there for you,” he said. A time of testimonies, mostly concerning the Anointing Water, preceded the powerful message.

 

URINATION WITHOUT OPERATION

Mr Austin Uba, from Imo State, Nigeria came to the church with his wife, Rose and son, Kinsgley to thank God for His wonderful work in his life. He had suffered from a urinary tract blockage, such that he was unable to urinate for a painful period of months. He was referred to India for an operation, by a doctor who had given him a catheter to enable him to pass urine. However, he was told the operation, if conducted, would only have a 50/50 chance of success and there was a high probability that he may not be functional as a man thereafter. Having seen God’s power in action on Emmanuel TV, he decided to come to The SCOAN for healing. After receiving the Anointing Water, he prayed and sprayed it on the affected area as well as in his mouth.

Merely hours later in his hotel room, Mr Uba, to his greatest surprise and delight passed his urine normally without the use of the catheter! Upon returning to the hospital, the doctor said he no longer needed an operation as he was already healed. Mr Uba encouraged people to look up to God and counselled them that He could do for them what He had done for him.

A COCKTAIL OF DRUGS AND DESTRUCTION
Mr Raphael Kpogli from Ghana had been a drug seller, smoker and addict for some 30 years, dealing specifically in heroin, Indian hemp (marijuana) and cocaine, while living a life of recklessness, waste and violence. In a shocking account of the debilitating and destiny-decaying effects of drug addiction, he narrated his sordid life experiences. He literally had to smoke a ‘cocktail’ of these drugs before going to bed, talking communicably with people or even eating, his wife and children always afraid of him at home due to his erratic nature. Having travelled to over six countries as a drug dealer, he acknowledged that although he never used a gun, he had caused multiple deaths by introducing drugs to people. His insatiable lust for this ‘cocktail’ of chaos crippled him financially as he sold cars, properties and even stole his wife’s clothes and jewelleries to sell to pay for his indulgence. A once thriving and intelligent man was reduced to a nervous and hate-filled wreck, staying in a single room in a house for months on end and only emerging to purchase more of the poison that was slowly crippling and killing him.

However, his wife, whom never doubted that one day God would turn her husband around, kept praying for his life to change and stood by him through thick and thin. When a few drops at the bottom of a bottle of Anointing Water were given to the Kpogli’s, Mr Raphael had no idea that within them contained the freedom he so sorely needed. After ministering the Anointing Water, Mr Kpogli said he felt a cold sensation envelop his body, as if a wave of liquid love was cascading through his entire system and reverberating within to eject all dependency on drugs and the darkness that embodied them. Mr Kpogli, who was about to embark on a rare journey to Accra, was worried at how he would complete the journey without taking the drugs. However, after many hours of travelling without even a thought of the substance, he realised that all previous craving for the drugs had disappeared. He tucked into a hearty meal and completed it, the first meal he had finished without taking drugs in 30 years. After three weeks of a drug-free life, he travelled to The SCOAN to share this life-changing testimony, exhorting friends who were still in the same business to abandon a life fuelled and filled by drugs which had reduced most of them to criminality. He said people must depend on God to be released from their plagues and a life of uncertainty.

TUTORSHIP FROM ABOVE


Miss Taffy Mukombami came all the way from Ireland to share her remarkable testimony. The Zimbabwean student explained that she had been both stressed and depressed because of the challenges she had faced to gain citizenship in Ireland. However, after discovering Emmanuel TV, her situation changed drastically. After being opportune to receive the Anointing Water, she prayerfully sprayed it on her application form for citizenship and sent it off. To her greatest surprise, a couple of months later, her residency was granted, something that some people had been waiting years to receive!

Aside from this, Taffy had also been facing difficulties with her Master of Arts Programme and almost took a year off due to the tremendous stress and pressure. However, at the verge of giving up, she saw Prophet T.B Joshua appear in her dream, take her to the library and show her the books she needed to study to perform excellently in her academic pursuits. Upon waking up, she was shocked to discover that the books he had divinely pointed out to her were exactly what she had been looking for. After the submission of her thesis, which she proudly showed the congregation, she explained that her results were suggestive of her obtaining a First Class a result, an achievement she knows is a product of Divine providence.

BARRENNESS EXPELLED
After being barren for nine long years, Mr and Mrs Ebong Victory came to The SCOAN to share their wonderful testimony. Medically, the couple had been diagnosed as having a low sperm count. Mrs Ebong had come to The SCOAN in April 2012, got the Anointing Water and prayed with her husband. After a month of administering some, she became pregnant. She promised to come for thanksgiving soon, with her child. Her husband was obviously full of happiness as he stood close to her in church. She said people should trust in God have faith because He is the Author and Finisher of our faith.

 

In another wonderful testimony to God’s provision of fruitfulness, a video was replayed showing Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesying to a woman, asking her of a medical report and revealing that her stomach had been cut though the purpose was neither achieved nor her menstruation regular. Mr & Mrs Anvor Ely from South Africa came forward in response to the video. After many years of barrenness, Mrs Anvor had undergone an operation in her womb but the result remained unsuccessful. However, after visiting The SCOAN and receiving the prophecy from Prophet T.B. Joshua, the couple decided to trust in God for supernatural provision.

They narrated how after the prophecy, Prophet T.B. Joshua had counselled them in the office, stating that the sickness was ‘cancelled’ and giving them Anointing Water. After ministering it and continuing to trust in God, building their faith by listening to messages on Emmanuel TV, Mrs Ely became pregnant! She stood before The SCOAN congregation to testify that she was now several months pregnant, to the glory of God! Mr Ely thanked God for the inspiring messages on Emmanuel TV and exhorted viewers that Jesus has the solution to all fundamental issues of life.

POSSESSED BY PORNOGRAPHY
A video was replayed in which Prophet TB Joshua prophesied to a woman about her marriage and how the internet had played an active role in their relationship. Coming forward with her husband to confirm the prophecy, Mrs MacAlexander explained to the congregation how the prophecy was true. A Kenyan working in Nigeria, she said she had not seen her husband more than twice in two years due to his regular travels but they talked trough the internet.

They would regularly strip naked before each other on a webcam and even engage in household activities such as cooking while viewing each other’s nudity. However, both soon took to watching pornography on the internet to satisfy themselves, soon birthing an addiction that almost crippled their marriage. The few occasions they did manage to spend time together, Mrs MacAlexander explained that the couple had no affection for each other whatsoever and she had determined within to leave the marriage before the prophecy was given. Although she had a well paid job, she explained that she could not give any account of how she spent the money, adding that after she had started viewing pornography, she began to sleep with a strange man in her dreams.

Her husband, Alexander, from Imo State, Nigeria, reiterated what his wife had said. They had met in Nairobi, Kenya five years ago but had barely spent months together as he was a regular traveller. After talking on the internet, he also had resorted to masturbation and pornography, too. He explained he began to have harrowing dreams of sleeping with a strange woman and finding himself in a cemetery with dead people. Career wise, despite connections and experience as a music producer, he found himself in a cycle of disappointment and missed opportunities.

Prophet TB Joshua spoke on the tortuous nature of pornography, a sin he stated was even worse than fornication. He said up to 70% of the world populace struggled with pornography, specifying that the youth in particular were affected. Following their confession, TB Joshua assured the couple that deliverance, restoration and reconciliation would follow and they would not leave The SCOAN unless they were completely free.

FROM CHURCH-BOY TO CULT-LEADER
A video was replayed in which a young man manifested after prayer from Wise Man Racine at The SCOAN prayer line and the spirit spoke through him that it was a strong man which has been in him since birth. Chinedu Anagor and his parents came forward following the clip to share their experiences. Chinedu, a graduate of music from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, was an obedient, trustworthy and churchgoing young man before his entrance into university. However, influence from bad friends and a desire to feel part of the ‘crowd’ led the intelligent student to delve into the dark arrays of cultism, as he was initiated into the ‘Buccaneers’. Confessing that his parents were hearing this for the first time, Chinedu explained how he displayed a different attitude at home while growing steadily deeper into cultism and its attendant diabolic activities at school.

His roles in the cult graduated to include initiating other students, consulting oracles on the cult’s behalf and acting as a bodyguard to the cult leader – all high ranking positions. With little concentration on his academic career, Chinedu ended up spending 10 years in university before graduating, deceiving his parents that he had completed his course whereas actually he hadn’t. He confessed to the fact that he raped girls, caused violence and threatened people, though maintaining a pretence of calmness and coolness to the casual onlooker. Through God’s influence, he was finally delivered at The SCOAN, after which he began to genuinely regret his past actions for the first time. Falling to his knees in tears, he begged T.B. Joshua to assist him to apologise to his parents for his disrespect and lifestyle of lies and deceit. Shedding tears, his aged father embraced his son, as the congregation looked on, many themselves wiping tears from their eyes at the touching reconciliation and incredible change in the life of Chinedu through the deliverance. Prophet T.B. Joshua counselled parents to learn a lesson from Chinedu’s experience and ensure their children are regularly in the house of God.

ABILITY IN DISABILITY


One of the events of the day was the giving of scholarships to various physically challenged students who are part of The SCOAN Scholarship Scheme. The students were given different sums of money according to their various scholastic needs, totalling N3 million. They included the blind, crippled, deformed and amputees. One of the spokespersons of the group, Olurundere Adenike, said she had no support for education, and when admitted to the University of Lagos, she had dropped out for lack of funds. However, she eventually gained admission to the University of Ibadan to read Languages and English, requesting assistance from Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV Partners to pursue her academic dreams of excellence. Also, Emmanuel Aderemi, a student of Political Science, University of Lagos, also spoke on the uniqueness of the opportunity given them to be part of the Scholarship program.

 

The service was concluded in a fiery Mass Prayer in which the finger of God Almighty manifested mightily among the congregants. As the Prophet remarked, what a God we have to worship, what a son we have to praise and what a future lies before us. To those whose lives are centred in Christ Jesus, better is not good enough; the best is yet to come.

The Sunday Service on 30 September 2012 kicked off with the prayer line after which Prophet T.B. Joshua asked for testimonies to be given, one after the other.

1.       NNAMDI EDOZIE AND WIFE – RECONCILED AFTER DELIVERANCE

A video was played in which the prophet last Monday prophesied to a couple that there was no affection at home. The husband, Mr Nnamdi Edozie revealed that though he has a beautiful woman as a wife, she is used to beating him; he washed her clothes and she was indeed the husband at home. He used to dream also, in which he saw his wife’s spiritual husband sleeping with her while he was turned into a houseboy. He said the wife was also wasteful in spending, violent and domineering. The second video was played, revealing the wife’s deliverance. The evil spirit spoke through her that it wanted to kill the couple through an accident and the wife would never have a child.

The husband told the congregation this Sunday morning that he had suffered so much, and had spent close to N15 million, visiting over 50 churches and 21 herbalists, for a solution, without success. Instead, he was told lies as to the causes of the problems in his household. He suffered financially and even had to use his vehicle as collateral. He experienced terrible accidents with his personal Jeep and three of his vehicles used in his transport business.

After her deliverance, she dreamt that the spiritual husband who had previously chased her wanting to use her for pepper soup was instead cut to pieces and used for pepper soup. Calling her husband “my baby boy” to acknowledge the renewed love between them, she stated that she was “the happiest woman on earth”. To the husband, the affection is now wonderful – “Just like an electric shock”, he said with a huge smile. He had advised that couples should look up to God as “there is nothing God cannot do”.

2.       MRS HELLEN UBONG TOON – RECONCILED WITH HER HUSBAND

A video was replayed showing the prophet prophesying to Mrs Hellen Ubong Toon that she had caught her husband with another woman and that she needed to hear God’s voice on the issue. After revealing a prophetic word to the woman about a man meeting her in her dreams, Prophet T.B. Joshua posed a question to her, asking her if that was not fornicating spiritually. Her home, according to the prophet was plagued by a spiritual husband. This morning, the woman had come with her husband; her husband used to be good to her, until recently when he turned against her, especially as she had remained barren for 12 years. For the first three years of their marriage, he said that things were really good for him but after that time, he had to sell his three cars and house due to financial problems caused by the spiritual husband. He had also slept with other women to prove his virility and fertility after which he was convinced that she was the cause of the barrenness. Prophet Joshua promised to deliver them and reconciliation occurred immediately.

3.       PASTOR LUCY PAYE TENIE – DELIVERED FROM EVIL FORCES

The USA based pastor (with a prophet for a husband) and co-founder of The End Times Ministries had come to the church, having watched numerous miracles performed and shown on Emmanuel TV. The evil spirit which spoke through her said it was responsible for fighting against the ministry, especially the commitment towards liberating Africa through the mechanism of Christianity. It said it was a collection of evil spirits from under the sea, which specialized in confusing people and creating sicknesses all over them. She had worked on a number of items (like a foundation centered on the less privileged and victims of HIV/AIDS, orphans, widows, etc) but had often procrastinated. She had told the church today, that she had only come for deliverance but was shocked to see what happened to her. She said she had pursued a career in medicine and now Biblical studies. She said deliverance is an important process but it must be done in a living church because though delivered before now, nothing worked for her.

Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke on the need for people to be aware of the fact that one may not know himself and that God can use anything to do His work. Works of charity must be done consistently to “prove that you are a servant”.

4.       ROSE IDRISU – EXPERIENCED BREAKTHROUGH THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

A Ghanaian woman had come to the church to thank God for the spectacular breakthrough she has experienced in her life, through a former poor, kindergarten teacher. She had earlier come to The SCOAN to collect Anointing Water from the prophet, which she administered. She started selling timber and this soon grew into a prosperous business. Today, she has two Jeeps and five trucks and four building though she started the business with only $350. 

Her advice to people was that the most important change is her life was not becoming a comfortable millionaire but that her faith increased to a new level and her life was completely transformed. This was her advice to people.

5.       AYUK AKOACHERE – EXPERIENCED ACADEMIC AND ENTERPRENEURAL BREAKTHROUGH THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

A Cameroonian, this multiple award winner, came to the church to express gratitude to God for His mercy on him. Frustrated in his job as an MTN Financial Analyst and Planning Manager, he had visited The SCOAN and was privileged to receive the Anointing Water. He applied it in his home and office and also sprayed in directly on himself. In 2011, he received an award for best performance in November and then the quarterly award as an outstanding employee. He also got the 2011 award in the category of “knowledge shared” and the MTN- Best Award in West and Central Africa. He chose to be sponsored by the company; he attended the Harvard Business School, Oxford Business School and The London Business School and made good impressions in the midst of other business executives from all over the world.

The Anointing Water is always his companion and it has opened a lot of doors and many companies wish to employ him, even as a physically challenged. His advice to the young is to trust in God though “we live in a world of temptations, doing crazy things to make money”. He said Jesus gives us an open cheque to fill any amount and enjoy life to the fullest with no strings attached. He also encouraged people should trust and have faith in Jesus and “He will do the rest”.

6.       MRS TANGANY BOTHO– DELIVERED FROM GALL BLADDER STONES THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

Mrs Botho had initially experienced terrible pain and felt she was dying before she chose to visit the hospital where she was diagnosed with gall bladder stones. Doctors recommended operation but she refused and came to The SCOAN and was privileged to get Anointing Water which she used; upon use, she felt a burning sensation and her pain faded gradually. Eventually, she did a test and was told the stones were no longer there. She had advised that people should trust God because through Him, all things are possible. It was her first time of coming to The SCOAN from Botswana.

7.       KENNEDY VIRGINIA EKERIA – DELIVERED FROM AN 18 YEARS ADDICTION TO DRUGS THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

He had actively used drugs for 18 years and became morally and psychologically depressed. He had used a variety – Indian hemp, cocaine, heroine and many other drugs. Not being able to stop it by himself, his wife joined the battle when she became terrified of him as he was always humiliating and beating her. After one of his violent rants, she was hospitalized and operated on but in the end because of his financial carelessness, he could not pay the hospital bill. He explained that without his knowledge, she was pouring the Anointing Water into his bath, food and drinking water and praying with Emmanuel TV. Due to her prayers and active faith, he became calmer and calmer. One night, he was ‘arrested’ in the dream by the Holy Spirit, God met with him and he abandoned his drug habits and old ways of life.

8.       HNR KING RICHARD SEIBA – DELIVERED FROM KIDNAPPERS AND GIVEN A CAR AND N500,000 BY PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA AND THE EMMANUEL TV PARTNERS

Hnr King Richard Seiba is from Yenogoa Council, Bayelsa State, Nigeria and was kidnapped from his home by seven armed youths who removed him through a window. He was alleged to be having an oil company in his domain through which he made a lot of money and built several houses. The kidnappers had demanded for a ransom of N30 million. One of those close to the king, Mishak Matthew (from Edo State) had tried to raise some money – first N2 million and then N4.5 million which was rejected by the kidnappers. Matthew travelled to The SCOAN from Bayelsa and obtained the Anointing Water which he sprayed on the king’s photograph and prayed. During the service, Mr Mishak also held the photograph of the king and one of the wise men touched it and ‘it was over’.

The king though he had suffered hunger and deprivation for many days was eventually released after the prayer as confusion set in among the kidnappers.

The king thanked God and T.B. Joshua as he said he was released on 25 September 2012. He said though they had wanted to kill him, Jesus saved him as he had seen T.B. Joshua in a dream. He said the kidnappers told him that some members of his community betrayed him but he had fasted and prayed earnestly. Grief-hearted, he had been released only narrowly. He thanked God for his security and return home. During the Sunday service, Prophet T.B. Joshua had promised to give him a car and N500,000. The very next day, during the Monday service, the pledge was fulfilled – a brand new Honda Accord car was given to him along with N500,000. He was advised to put the troubles behind him.

9.       MIRIAM AND FELISTUS NJATHU – HEALED OF HIV/AIDS POSITIVE ONE AT THE PRAYER LINE

Both are sisters from Malawi and suffered from HIV/AIDS Positive 1 for two years before they came to The SCOAN to be part of the prayer line. Miriam is 28 years and Felistas is 33 years old and both had suffered from dizziness and chronic headaches for two years. Holding their medical reports as evidence, they were certified negative, after returning to their country following their healing in the church on 25 December 2012. Both said that fornication and adultery led to their plagues before they were delivered. Miriam said she is free and fit and that people should always trust in God as “The Mighty Healer”. Felistus also said people should not lose hope; they should know that God is able to do all things for His children.

10.   MOLLY SEBELE – HEALED OF CERVICAL CANCER THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

A lecturer in a College of Education, Botswana (Dean of Physical Education Department), Molly Sebele had suffered from cervical cancer which gave her copious vaginal discharges that made her smell badly. By the grace of God, she received the Anointing Water which she used constantly and prayed with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV and was miraculously healed with the medical report to prove it.

11.   MOSES ANI AND WIFE – DELIVERED FROM BARRENNESS THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

Moses Ani had suffered from low sperm count while his wife, Blessing had experienced no menses for years and this had resulted in barrenness. They were privileged to have The Anointing Water with which they prayed and later sprayed. Today, God has blessed them with a child of their own. They advised that people should hold on and hold out and trust in God because “with Him, all things are possible”.

12.   UGOCHUKWU IKENNA – DELIVERED FROM HARD DRUGS THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

He had been a drug addict for many years selling his own clothes to buy drugs; he led a miserable life living moment by moment for his next fix. For seven years, he was not himself. He was taken to a rehabilitation centre and released on July 18, 2012, yet he returned to drugs. His wife had decided to put The Anointing Water in his food and he slept for many hours after eating it. The man who had once led a terribly rough life and had sold three cars, gradually regained himself and reconciled with his wife who had separated from him because of the drugs. He said that as The Anointing Water was having effect on him, a ball of fire left his body. He said drugs ruin people and that it is only God could help them in moments of stress.

13.   BEATRICE ATOM – DELIVERED FROM POVERTY AND LONELINESS

Mrs Beatrice Atom is a Liberian whose husband was killed by militants on August 10, 1990. He was actually shot dead and cut into four pieces right in front of his wife. She escaped into the forest with her kids and stayed there for eight months. She was full of pain in her heart and had to take care of three daughters and a boy, alone. Her house was also burnt to the ground.

After narrating her story, T.B. Joshua and the Emmanuel TV Partners in an act of charity, gave her N300,000 and a copy of “The Mirror”. She was grateful to T.B. Joshua and the Emmanuel TV Partners for their generosity and for being located by the Holy Spirit.

After a powerful prayer line where people were disconnected from any demonic influence in their lives, Prophet T.B. Joshua entered the teeming cathedral and gave an enlightening sermon titled, ‘A True Prophet’. Asking how one will tell who is a true prophet or a false prophet and using the book of 1 John 4:1, he said the one having a divine spirit that comes from above is meek, peaceable and humble, and refrains from all impurities of this world. He said that the spirit speaks only when God wishes it to speak whereas others are always ready to pray. He added people generally have the wrong impression that healing, miracles, the spirit of prophecy and all of God’s blessings are wrought at the will of the person concerned. This is why people easily feel a prophet should be able to pray anytime, not minding whether it is the right time or not. A true prophet however will not pray without spirit intimation. He explained that without direction from the Spirit, if they give, they give of themselves; they prophesy of themselves; that is why there are prophecies without accomplishment; healings without results.

In a tribute to his late mother, Prophet T.B. Joshua said that she had advised him that when he did not seem to receive from God, he should look into his love walk as the Bible in Mark 12:31 says we should love our neighbour as ourselves. He explained that when the hour of her departure came, he had sent for her and she was with him for a day and they discussed. He said he did not know how to relate to her the message that he had received from God because it was news that no one wants to hear. However, he had learned from reading the Bible that the issue of departure can be delayed by prayer or by waiting in faith (Isaiah 38:4; Luke 7:2). He told his mother that no matter how upright we are, we still need to rededicate ourselves. He explained how he told her, “Everyone has been tempted; I have been tempted; you have been tempted and we will continue to be challenged by issues that violate our conscience. We all face the temptation to do the wrong thing but there is a way – Jesus is the Way”. He said that when we give our lives to Jesus and make Him our boss, CEO and Director in all we do, we are under His supervision to do all.

He added that although his brothers and sisters had wanted to help their dear mother medically, her departure could not be delayed by human sympathy; he told her to be in an attitude of prayer. He said that, “When it is time for man’s departure, nothing can delay it except waiting in faith or through prayer”. The man of God added that we have read about many Biblical characters whose departure was delayed. Hezekiah was rich and favoured and when he cried out to God, God answered him in Isaiah 38:4 “I have heard your prayer and I have seen your tears, surely I will add to your days, 15 years.” The prophet explained that unchangeable means, what will happen will still happen.

He referred to the late President of Ghana, Professor John Evans Atta Mills, saying that, “My dear father President Atta Mills – if there is anyone that would want the late president to spend 200 years on this earth, I am number one.”

He recalled a phone call he had made to the late president a month and a week ago in which he described a vision that he had seen of cloud covering his apartment. He told him that he should be prayerful because he had seen his body being transfigured to a celestial realm. He had also advised the president who was planning to travel to the USA to be prayerful because of the vision. Speaking to the congregation, the man of God said, “When clouds come down to pick you up, it is a hero’s welcome.”

The man of God had also told the president that his coming 68th birthday should be dedicated to God through fasting and prayer. He explained that the birthday was not celebrated on Emmanuel TV because there was no way you could wish Happy Birthday without saying, “Long life’.

Speaking on why he had not travelled to Ghana for the last three years, the prophet said that he could not go anywhere without first hearing from God. He added that he would love to be there anytime he heard from God, especially because, according to him, Ghana was his second home.  Still speaking on the departure of the late Ghanaian President, Professor John Evans Atta Mills, he said that he knew where he was going, adding “Let your soul admire where he is and pray to be there one day.” He emphasised, “It is a wonderful grace to know where you are going. You need not fear where you are going when you know Jesus is going with you.”

He ended his message saying that a pastor leads best when his people get behind him.

NATIVE ENERGY CRUSHED BY GOD’S POWER

When Mr Oba Yabrifa Ebiundu (a witch doctor) was encountered by the prophet during the previous Monday service, his true identity was revealed through a word of prophecy. The man of God told him that he was a witch doctor with powers and energy that he used even to cause and stop rain. He immediately confirmed the prophet’s words and his wife added that the small demons appeared to her and attacked her when they were coming to The SCOAN. After the video of the prophecy, footage of Yabrifa in his community shrine as a Chief Priest and villagers worshipping him was played.

Mr Yabrifa accompanied by his wife and son then came into the service to tell his story. He introduced himself as a witch doctor and chief priest who was the father of every colour who served the ‘god of justice’. He explained that he was the custodian of the deity which was an inheritance from his grandfather. He said that from when he was a small child, he would go to the river to catch fish for his mother and preferred spending time in the river than going to school or staying at home. Initially wanting to reject the inheritance of the chief priest, he tried to do a security job but the deity appeared to his employers in the form of his father and warned them to release him because he was a royal chief priest.

Then, on one fateful day during a local festival, Mr Yabrifa physically felt a force enter him, eventually leading him to a river where he stayed in the depths of the water for several hours. The next moment Mr Yabrifa realised that he was in the centre of the diabolic shrine, being crowned as chief priest.

He was taught how to make charms for people but despite his ‘native energy’, he knew that something was disturbing him. Although people flocked from far and wide to pay homage to him and partake in the native ceremonies where hard liquor was poured and animals sacrificed, Mr Yabrifa remained in poverty while the demons regularly attacked his family members. He explained how when pastors came and held crusades next to his shrine, praying against the idols he worshipped, he would be provoked and invoke rain to come and stop their crusade. He further said that the deity never allowed him to shake anyone’s hand as his hand was reserved for feeding the deity alone. He also never bowed for anyone or removed his cap or shoes as the deity always told him that he was to be worshipped and was above everyone else.   Referring to his son, he said that he also had native powers and was his second in command.

Mr Yabrifa explained that he kept warning his wife to stop watching Emmanuel TV because of the deliverances God used T.B. Joshua and the wise men to do were beyond his own native power. Eventually forced to come to The SCOAN because of his poverty and wretched life as a smoker, drunkard and womanizer, Mr Yabrifa never thought that he would be discovered. After the prophecy, he explained that he had had a dream in which Prophet T.B. Joshua followed him to his village and helped him set the idols ablaze and deliver the community. Upon listening to Mr Yabrifa, Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke on the need of his followers also coming to The SCOAN for their own deliverance.

THE ARENA OF LIBERTY!

The prophet led the congregation and viewers in a powerful time of prayer, saying, “I can see you being delivered, healed. You yoke, bondage, I command you to be loosed in Jesus’ name”. Truly, the people were disconnected from every demonic activity as they agreed with T.B. Joshua and prayed along in faith. After the prayer, the man of God moved through the entire auditorium giving words of prophecy and counselling to the people as intimated by the Spirit of God. In the second service, the auditorium was full to the brim with more people awaiting their freedom and the wise men using the authority in the name of Jesus continued to command any evil spirit to leave the people. We thank God for setting his people free in the arena of liberty.
