The 2016 Christmas service at The SCOAN witnessed a blend of celebration and warfare. While congregants exuded illimitable joy on account evangelist-racineof the commemoration of the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, they also used the occasion to unleash holy terror on the kingdom of darkness. The Mass Prayer shook the foundations of the satanical kingdom and caused commotion in the gates of hell. The intensity of the Mass Prayer also brought about deliverance, healing and liberation for those under the many different yokes of the devil. Congregants also made positive confessions of promotion, prosperity, sound health and career progress ahead of the approaching new year.

In his message, The Promise of Liberation, Evangelist Racine urged Christians to look onto Jesus whom the Father sent to liberate us from all the worries and burdens of the world. According to him, “He (Jesus) is the fulfilment of every God’s Word. He is a Light for direction and comfort. A glorious Light that will dispel every shade of darkness in our lives.”  He also assured them, using Biblical references, that their stolen joy would be restored through the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Urging them to repose their absolute trust in the Son of God, he added that they will never be overwhelmed by the oddities of this world: “When you trust in Jesus Christ, you will never be confounded in time or eternity.” Concluding, he urged Christians never to allow the devil remind them of their past, stressing that their past is over. He also encouraged them to rebuke the evil one by reminding him of his future failure: “When the devil comes to remind you of your past, remind him of his future failure.”

HEALED BY HEAVEN, RECOGNISED BY THE UNITED NATIONS               

3-mr-mrs-ebenezer-first-quaoMr Ebenezer First-Quao’s decades-long service with the United Nations as an interpreter witnessed its own sad times. The Ghanaian would suddenly be hit by a nasty ailment that threatened his career. Each time he went to the restroom to ease himself, he came out weak. Visiting a specialist hospital in his Ethiopia base, he was diagnosed with severe haemorrhoids with thrombosis. The doctors had suggested the option of surgery but his wife would rather have the matter tabled before God; she encouraged her husband to visit The SCOAN, having become an ardent viewer of Emmanuel TV after some initial scepticism.

Visiting The SCOAN in 2009, exactly the same time when the late Ghanaian President, Atta-Mills held a thanksgiving at the church, Mr First-Quao received prayers from Prophet T.B. Joshua. During the prayer, he felt an unprecedented calmness all around him. That same evening, as he went to ease himself, he felt no more pain even as the blood stains that usually accompanied his visit to the restroom disappeared. Before he left The SCOAN, Mr First-Quao received the Morning Water. He subsequently visited his children in different countries across Europe and ministered it to them.

The entire First-Quao family received great and remarkable blessings thereafter. Apart from receiving academic and business breakthroughs, some of his children also received their citizenship in their various countries of residence in Europe. As for Mr First-Quao himself, he was recognised in retirement by former United Nations Secretary-General, Ban-Ki Moon with an award for an initiative he had spearheaded to assist victims of drought in Ethiopia. He was also blessed financially with a retirement benefit to the tune of five hundred thousand US dollars. He has invested the money into several building projects aside from buying his own house in Addis-Ababa.

According to his wife, during their testimony, coming across Emmanuel TV was the biggest breakthrough they had ever experienced in life. She also submitted that the teachings of Prophet T.B. Joshua have enabled her to discover practical Christianity.

 

STIFF NECK LOSES ITS STINGfrancis-ekene-3

francis-ekene-1Having been diagnosed with a stiff neck due to cervical spondylosis, Mr Francis Ekene was advised to go for a corrective surgery but the Nigerian living in South Africa rejected the idea. Instead, he chose to seek the face of God rather than waste his money on an operation that was without any concrete guarantee. He eventually visited The SCOAN and proceeded to the Prayer Line.francis-ekene-2

After Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for him, he noticed that he could turn his hitherto stiff neck. All the debility and excruciating pain that came with the stiff neck stopped. Thanking God during his testimony, Mr Ekene who has since returned to his work, observed that he can now sleep peacefully without discomfort.

According to him, he now drives his car with ease. He advised people all over the world to put their trust in God.

 

TEN YEARS OF JOBLESSNESS COME TO A GLORIOUS END

For ten years, it was a sad experience of joblessness or at least, having to make do with odd jobs just to keep body and soul together. Sometimes, her daughter would have to intervene to save her from total financial annihilation. Mrs Christiana Abiye Rullich really needed God to bring her dire situation under His control. One of her concerned friends became the angel God used to change her situation. Her friend had learnt about the December 2016 Revival Service on Emmanuel TV and had informed Mrs Rullich about it. In a display of absolute faith, Mrs Rullich purchased her flight ticket and flew down to Nigeria. In her mind, the unending failure to secure a permanent job must succumb to the 5-christianapower of God.

During the Revival Service, Mrs Rullich received prayers from Prophet T.B. Joshua. She also received the Morning Water. After the prayers, she received a letter from Germany, notifying her of her employment for a permanent position which commences on January 2, 2017. Thanking God for the miracle, Mrs Rullich told congregants that the employment is her first permanent one in ten years. The new job comes with several securities including health insurance. She advised people going through her type of challenge to believe in God as the only real Helper.

For two years, she suffered from difficulty in walking and had to resort to the use of a lumbar corset. The ailment made her unable to carry out domestic chores. Not even was she able to lift a bucket of water. All her quest for a solution ended in futility. The Nigerian residing in the United States of America had to make the over twelve-hour journey in order to attend the 2016 Revival Service at The SCOAN, Lagos, Nigeria in December.caroline

Mrs Ene was at the Prayer Line where she received the anointed touch of Prophet T.B. Joshua. The power of God through His Prophet uprooted the cause of her problem and made her whole again.

SPIRIT HUSBAND IS BARRED AS MARRIAGE IS RESTORED
family-3Mrs Maduekwe was born to a sangoma-practicing father and had grown up to find herself dreaming of taking over from him. Sometimes, she would dream about herself dressed as a princess. Her problems started after her father’s death when she refused to take over from him as a sangoma practitioner. The sangoma spirit forcefully possessed her and made her do many terrible things, especially in her marriage. Before she married her husband, they both enjoyed unmitigated peace until they got married. The love that bound them together soon took flight. Mrs Maduekwe became a terror. She would become uncontrollably angry and would threaten to injure her husband. Whenever her husband wanted some intimacy, his manhood would die unnaturally.
Mrs Maduakwe had terminated three of her pregnancies and almost lost her life in another attempt to abort a six-months-old pregnancy. She continued to live a violent life and eventually rekindled a relationship with her ex-boyfriend. She even told her husband that the young man was just a cousin. She continued to frolic with her ex-boyfriend as they would meet secretly without her husband having an inkling of their escapades. On his part, Mr Maduekwe also had extra-marital affairs because of his wife’s seeming frigidity. For fourteen years, the marriage hit the doldrums.family-2

The couple visited The SCOAN and encountered the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua as he ministered prophecy to congregants. As soon as the prophet approached her, the spirit inside Mrs Maduekwe started manifesting. The man of God went on to tell the couple that the cause of their marital woes was a spiritual husband that had been tormenting Mrs Maduekwe for a long time. The couple thereafter received their deliverance in the mighty name of Jesus. Since their deliverance, the couple have rediscovered the true love that was the hallmark of their early days as a married couple. Mrs Maduekwe urged people all over the world to know that God’s time is the best while her husband added that we should run to God in the face of every marital problem.

PROPHET T.B.JOSHUAThe SCOAN Sunday service of May 29, 2016 brought to the fore the demonstration of God’s power and glory in line with its basic purpose of redemption, salvation and deliverance. Prophet T.B. Joshua led the congregants in pulling down strongholds through the power of prayer, prophecy and deliverance. During Mass Prayer, the man of God loosed souls from the entanglement of the devil and restored destinies stolen or ruined. He prayed for the nations of the world and committed their leaders into the hands of God, especially nations that are in the process of electing new leaders. He also prayed for troubled nations and asked God to intervene, bearing in mind the immigrant and refugee challenges that have become a global phenomena.

 

Earlier, Evangelist Michelle had called on Christians to endure the harsh and discouragingEVANGELIST MITCHELLE situations they face in order to enjoy the future glory that awaits them. She cited many biblical examples of great men of God who, in spite of the challenges they faced, soldiered on and eventually attained great heights. In a message titled ENDURE: IT IS POSSIBLE, she named biblical icons such as Noah and David who in spite of the opposition and challenges they faced eventually became celebrated men in history. She therefore urged Christians to remain focused and unrelenting with their visions if they really want to attain remarkable greatness. “When God gives you a vision and it is opposed by men, don’t reduce your vision. Endure, it is possible,” she advised.

 

TESTIMONIES

THE HOLY SPIRIT ATTACKED HIS ADDICTION AND SET HIM FREE

Cigarettes became his greatest source of joy and satisfaction. He smoked as though his entire life depended on it to the extent that he lost one of his sons as a result of his reckless attachment to the nicotinic wraps. Mr Johnson Mobote, a retired lieutenant in the Nigerian Army would smoke an average of two rolls of cigarettes in a day accompanied with shots of a local gin popularly known as ‘ogogoro’. Whenever he was on hospital admission, he would sneak out to go and smoke much to the frustration of his doctors who wondered what manner of man he was. For more than fifty years years, he “enjoyed” the evil smoke.

LT JOHNSON MOBOTE (RTD ) AND FAMILY

His father and uncle had become sworn enemies till their death based on allegations that the latter cast the spell of smoking on him. The unholy habit triggered several irresponsible behaviours in the soldier who had attained the rank of a Major but was demoted to a Lieutenant due to insubordination. During the Nigeria-Biafra war, he sustained a leg injury from a gunshot as he went ransacking the corpses of dead soldiers in search of cigarettes. His addiction was that bad!

 

All efforts made by his family to cure his addiction proved futile. His case was like that of a burning grass upon which fire increased as more water was being poured in an attempt to extinguish it. “I had been to many churches, undergone several deliverances and even visited traditional medicine homes, but the more they tried to cure my addiction, the worse it became. I have consumed gallons of holy water and yet no solution,” he told congregants at The SCOAN. Most times, he would abscond from home after altercations with his family over his unwholesome habit and settle into a private haven to continue his smoking spree. After several failed attempts to lure him to The SCOAN, his family finally received divine assistance through Emmanuel TV.

 

He had watched Prophet T.B. Joshua preach about OFFENCE on Emmanuel TV and that prepared the ground for his reconciliation with his family whom he had abandoned. Arriving at The SCOAN, Mr Mobote received the biggest gift from his daughter who approached him and asked to minister the Morning Water to him. After ministering the Morning Water, the old soldier confiscated the whole bottle and emptied it into his mouth to appease his daughter and prevent her further nagging. Unknown to him, he had exorcised the demon that was disturbing his life for over five decades!

 

After gulping a whole bottle of the Morning Water, Mr Mobote stopped having the urge of smoking from that very moment ‘til now. It has remained a mystery how his unholy appetite came to an end. But to those who believe in the power of God, there is nothing beyond that power. Thanking God for his deliverance from cigarette addiction, in company of his family, Mr Johnson Mobote expressed gratitude to God for freeing his soul from destruction. He advised people all over the world to desist from smoking as it offers no single good, adding that he had tried to stop on his own but failed several times.

 

EMMANUEL TV TOUCHES LIVES ACROSS INDIA

Mrs Suresh was involved in an accident six years ago in which she fractured her shoulder and was unable to do her house chores. In fact, she could not even raise her arm up. Her husband had to make out time from his busy schedule to assist her. As she battled with her fractured shoulder following a surgery, she prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua after she had been encouraged by the testimony of a South African woman who got healed at The SCOAN. After praying along with the man of God, in a matter of minutes, she began to raise her arm. The fractured shoulder was healed completely!

MR SURESH KURIAN PATTANI AND FAMILY

After his wife’s healing, Mr Suresh got inspired and joined a team of believers to install satellite dishes enabling Emmanuel TV to be viewed in over one hundred homes across India. For that act of faith, he received a reward from God. His stagnant career was turned around as he got promoted in his place of work to the glory of God. He told congregants that many who got their Emmanuel TV cables through him have continued to experience God’s blessings. According to him, their testimonies are too numerous to mention. The thankful couple praised God for His divine touch through Emmanuel TV. They advised people to believe in God, stating that He does not consider money even as distance is not a barrier to His power.

 

BARRENNESS COULD NOT STAND THE ANOINTING

Six years of barrenness stood in between them and marital bliss like a plague. Having been diagnosed with low sperm count, staphylococcus and poor ejaculation, Mr Olubode sought medical, spiritual and traditional solutions but none was forthcoming. He was made to consume a lot of concoctions by spiritualists and traditional doctors yet nothing changed about his condition. A friend would later introduce him to Emmanuel TV through which his long-sought solution came.

 

MR & MRS OLUBODE FEMIMr and Mrs Olubode were excited with the awesome display of God’s power as they watched the numerous miracles that happened at The SCOAN. Having been convinced that the solution to their problem would be found at The SCOAN, the couple visited the church in September last year and received prayers and the Morning Water from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. As they returned home and continued to minister the Morning Water, they got intimate and in a space of one month, Mrs Olubode was confirmed pregnant much to the perplexity of her husband who could not comprehend the workings of God’s power.

 

Thanking God alongside his heavily pregnant wife, Mr Olubode expressed the huge relief they now enjoy after the good Lord smiled on them. All the psychological traumas they went through are now overtaken by the grace of God. They advised people with a similar challenge to have faith in God, no matter the problem.

 

MIRACULOUS CAREER TURN-AROUND FOR PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALLER

Mr Blessing Eleke started his professional football career aged 17 and travelled to Italy where he tried his skills with three different clubs but failed to get a professional contract. He returned to Nigeria distraught and disappointed. He saw the development as a major setback to his career as a footballer. Back in Nigeria, he decided to visit The SCOAN and received the Morning Water.

 

As he started ministering the Morning Water, events around him began to take a promising turn. His manager informed him of an opportunity for trials with a Slovenian club. As he prepared for the trials, he ministered the Morning Water and was shocked at the results. He was able to net remarkable goals during the trials and became a bride of the team which had no other option than to offer him a professional contract in 2014. Because of his impressive performance, he was sold to a bigger club barely after one season.MR BLESSING .C. ELEKE AND BROTHER

 

He signed a four-year contract with AK Olympija, a big team in the Slovenian league, albeit without a trophy for twenty years. In his first season with AK Olympija, he scored vital goals and made several assists, helping them to win the league trophy for the first time in twenty years. In total, he scored fifteen goals in his first season at the new club. According to the footballer, he usually ministered the Morning Water whenever he had a game to play. He thanked God for the colossal transformation his career has witnessed ever since he started ministering the Morning Water. He advised people all over the world to continue watching Emmanuel TV and ministering the Morning Water.

 

CEASED MENSTRUATION LOST THE BATTLE IN JESUS’ NAME

For Mrs Roseline Johnson, nature seemed to have shut its door against her. The Bayelsa State indigene had not seen her menstruation for ten years and could not fathom why it was so. She knew that something was amiss and had to visit many hospitals and traditional homes. Each quest for solution ended in futility and left her more dejected. All the medications she received even made a caricature of her condition as they all proved ineffective.

 

Last Saturday, as she watched Emmanuel TV, she saw a woman who had her type of problemMRS ROSELINE JOHNSON being prophesied to by the man of God and decided to key into the prophecy by placing her hand on the screen of her television. After that act of irrepressible faith, it took just twenty-four hours for her age-long problem to be brought to an end. Her ceased menstruation was restored to the glory of God. Overwhelmed with awe and the joy of thanksgiving, she advised people all over the world to have faith, stressing that distance is not a barrier.

 

WHERE THE ANOINTING OPERATES, DEADLY DISEASES ARE DESTROYED

Mr Victor Olympio and family have been watching Emmanuel TV for many years and had seen that God was doing mighty things at the Arena of Liberty. The Togolese family resident in the Republic of Benin were happy until the devil tried to mess up their joy with their son’s health. The young lad was trying to transfer to another school and needed to undergo medicals only for him to be diagnosed with the deadly hepatitis B virus. The discovery sent shockwaves down the spines of his parents who made frantic efforts to see specialists in connection with the sad development. The specialist contacted only suggested further tests for the entire family.

 

MR VICTOR OLYMPIO AND FAMILYTurning down the advice of the specialist, the couple declined to carry out further tests on themselves and instead tinkered with the idea of visiting The SCOAN to see the man of God. After being unable to see Prophet T.B. Joshua, the couple decided to get the Morning Water which they ministered to their son in faith. After ministering the Morning Water for a while, they revisited the laboratory where they received the happiest shock of their lives. The hepatitis B virus was no more! Like an evil stronghold, it had been pulled down by the mighty hand of God through the Morning Water medium. All other laboratories visited confirmed he was free from the hepatitis B virus. As they testified to God’s goodness in their life as a family, the parents urged viewers all over the world to run to God, no matter the situation they found themselves in.

 

REDEEMED FROM THE FASTLANE OF PROSTITUTION

Ms Sylvia Ogbebor was shocked when the man of God prophesied about her case. She had been engrossed in prostitution for many years and had been a customer to many herbalists who made incisions on her private part to enable her to attract men at will. She was given beads to wear and formed the habit of travelling cross West Africa in furtherance of her prostitution business. She was insatiable sexually. In the long run, she had a child for a young man who eventually turned her into a punching bag. After surviving the abuse and beating in the hands of her ‘baby father’, she was helped to Dubai by a friend.

 

At Dubai, she continued her prostitution business, sleeping with up to forty men in a day in MS. OGBEBOR SYLVIA, MOTHER AND SONorder to repay the ticket cost her friend had paid for her. From Dubai, she returned to Nigeria and decided to start using the internet to canvass for men. All her efforts to keep her son and mother comfortable hit the brick wall as the boy’s health condition ran into troubled waters. Her friends prevailed upon her to return to Abuja to continue her prostitution.

 

She continued to prostitute between Nigeria and Dubai and was able to raise enough money to rent an apartment for her mother and son. She would lie to her mother that she was travelling for business but the old woman never suspected that her daughter was a chartered harlot. Eventually, Ms Ogbebor embraced lesbianism, smoking and alcoholism in order to escape from depression. Her insatiable urge for sex remained at its zenith and made a mince meat of her life. After perambulating around in search of deliverance, she was advised to seek the face of God.

 

Visiting The SCOAN with so much expectation, the man of God prophesied to her thus: “There is a woman there. In those days, in your past, you used to wear some beads. You have done away with these beads, you no longer wear beads but now, the challenge you are facing is that you have no settled home. No single man can please you. No one can give you the kind of affection you want. This has bastardised your career. You are just from one place to another but right now, you are tired. You don’t know what is wrong with you. Please, come; Jesus loves you.” Coming out of the congregation to confirm the prophecy, Ms Ogbebor received her deliverance.

 

Returning to testify, she gave a gory account of all her illicit sexual escapades in company of some other irresponsible women. If not for God’s grace, her descent into the abysmal trenches of prostitution would have claimed her life, bearing in mind the existence of deadly sexually transmitted diseases and the huge presence of ritualists who would stop at nothing to use unsuspecting woman for their nefarious activities. Indeed, she was saved by grace through Christ Jesus.

 

Thanking God for her deliverance, she told the congregation how blessed and calm she now feels. According to her, the urge for sex has now given way to meditation on the Word of God using the Faith Bracelet. She now enjoys an inner peace that is so indescribable. Smiling with renewed hope and faith in Christ Jesus, she advised the world to repose their faith in God, no matter their expectations.

 

DELIVERED FROM THE SPIRITS OF PORNOGRAPHY AND ALCOHOLISM

Mr Lebohang Malokotsa was addicted to pornography right from his primary school days. It all started out as a prank amongst his peers but eventually developed into masturbation. The young lawyer from Lesotho became sexually perverted and would do anything to sleep with woman. As he laboured under the yoke of lust, he contacted the kindred spirits of smoking and drinking. All through his university years, he battled with these problems. His academic life was greatly distracted by pornography which he usually found on the internet through Facebook and YouTube.

 

MR LEBOHANG MALOKOTABecause of the negative toll the spirit of lust took on him, he has spent three years in his post-graduate study which ordinarily should take one year. On several occasions, he had had issues with his father who frowned at his irresponsible behaviours and got his mother depressed due to his misdemeanours. His legal career suffered untold stagnation as he went deeper and deeper into his pornographic distraction. He would lie to his fiancée deceiving her into believing he was a responsible young man. After making many failed efforts to quit his ungodly habits, he decided to visit The SCOAN. Seated in the auditorium penultimate Sunday, he was fished out by the man of God through words of prophecy.

 

You are addicted to watching the internet, a lot of pornography and naked people. Because of that, you can masturbate without anything. Even as you sit down, it’s an attack. As you sit down, you can begin to masturbate. This thing is destroying your life…,” said the man of God even as the young man confirmed the prophecy in its entirety. With just a touch from the man of God, the young man fell to the ground under the power of the Holy Spirit. All thanks and honour belong to our God who made his deliverance possible, through Christ Jesus! During his testimony, he expressed joy for coming to his real senses after the deliverance, urging viewers all over the world not to put themselves in positions where the devil would tempt them.

 

BROKEN MARRIAGE RESTORED THROUGH PROPHECY

Mr Solomon Gawera had divorced his wife and was busy lusting after other woman. The Ugandan national recounted how he was possessed by an evil spirit which eventually had a sexual relationship with him. This happened when he was in secondary school. Since then his life had not remained the same. The spirit wife thereafter took control of his life, drifting him towards the embers of destruction and death but for the intervention of God through the word of prophecy revealed to Prophet T.B. Joshua during penultimate Sunday service.

 

Inviting his wife to The SCOAN, Prophet T.B. Joshua surrendered the matter to God and said His will concerning their case must be sought before anything could happen. The young woman recalled how she had to accept divorce as a result of her estranged husband’s lustful behMR SOLOMON GAWERA AND WIFEaviours and illicit affairs with many women, including her best friend. The woman was visibly distraught as she narrated her ex-husband’s irresponsible attitudes. He would beat her up whenever she protested against his wayward ways.

 

Following the direction of the Holy Spirit, Prophet T.B. Joshua who had earlier delivered Mr Gawera, reconciled the couple, restoring their broken marriage in the mighty name of Jesus. He directed Mr Gawera to apologise to his wife, saying that their marriage is the will of God. Speaking extensively on the issue of divorce, the man of God observed that one of the major roles of the church is to restore broken marriages. He also observed that couples could be divorced in spirit and yet live together. According to him, that trend is dangerous as it could lead to dire consequences. He however blamed the rampant case of divorce on the lack of understanding.

On Sunday 28th February, 2016, the SCOAN Choir ensured that the congregants danced away all their fears and burdens, replacing them with the hope and faith that abound in the Word of God. That is always the case when the Spirit of the Lord is upon the souls of his children – they will dance a living dance!

T.B. JOSHUA

Prophet T.B. Joshua sent the congregation pondering with a deep message titled, BELIEF IN THE HEART. The bottom-line of the message laid in the fact that God cherishes anything done from the heart. In his message, the man of God emphasised that “Faith is not imitation.” He observed that many Christians have been doing foolish things and calling it faith: “God will not meet you because you imitate what someone did. Faith is not imitation. God will meet you when you take action in obedience to God. When our spirit acts upon the Word, all we need to do is use our faith to put a demand upon the anointing.”

Speaking further, the man of God taught the congregation how to connect with God through the study of His Word, stating that mere recital of the scripture is not what is needed to connect with God but a heart-felt and slow approach, attentively and repeatedly: “The more you think, meditate about what you read in the Bible, the more your spirit, that is your heart acts upon the Word you read.”

Concluding, the man of God urged Christians to avoid taking offence as it blocks their connection to God and His everlasting blessings: “Only a free spirit can communicate with God, hear from God. Whether you are right or wrong, you have to release yourself and put it behind you and move forward. You have no right or permission to hold onto an offence. Holding onto an offence affects the glory of God in your life.”

 

TESTIMONIES

AGE-LONG SPIRIT OF BEDWETTING EXPELLED; FRENCH CITIZENSHIP GRANTED

MRS MUKAMBONERA CLAUDINEMrs Mukambonera Claudine, a Rwandan national residing in France visited The SCOAN with a couple of challenges. She had been applying for citizenship in France but all her efforts hit the brick wall. Her bedwetting problem was perhaps the biggest and most embarrassing challenge that had troubled her right from birth. During her school days, her fellow students would run away from her saying that she had an offensive odour. While in the boarding house, no student wanted to share the same bed with her.  Sometimes, while she slept on the upper bunk, her urine would trickle down on the body of the student who slept on the lower bunk. She was left alone in her world and was made to feel very bad about herself. She was always washing and cleaning the hostel in order to minimize the stench of urine that came from her. Those were really challenging moments in her life. Her marital aspirations were also troubled by her bedwetting problem. On one occasion, a suitor was discouraged by someone who informed him that she was bedwetting. Though she eventually married her suitor, the bedwetting problem continued into her marriage. To save her head, she would ensure that she slept together with her children and would ascribe her bedwetting to them. Even when she shared a bed with a friend in France, it was the same sad story. Sometimes, she would be on the street crying and bemoaning her unfortunate lot in life.

When she came to The SCOAN, she was placed at the Prayer Line where the man of God prayed for her and subsequently gave her the Morning Water. On her return to France, she ministered the Morning Water devotedly with prayers. To the glory of God, she was granted French citizenship. The bedwetting problem also came to a permanent end. Joy and self-esteem which were seriously lacking in her life have now returned. She praised God for answering her prayers.

A PROPHETIC MESSAGE SETTLES THE MATTER

Ambassador and Mrs Raphael Horsfall came to The SCOAN with the problem of recurrent miscarriage. Since they got married, Mrs Horsfall had been experiencing recurrent miscarriages. Whenever the pregnancy was six weeks old, she would have a nightmare in which she would find herself eating in the dream. The aftermath of that nightmare was that she would start bleeding, thereby losing the pregnancy.AMBASSADOR & MRS RAPHAEL HORSEFALL

Medical appointments with the best gynaecologists could not help just as all diagnosis failed to detect any problem. Her husband is an Ambassador of Peace and Conflict Management with the Presidency in Abuja and who, in company of other Niger Delta dignitaries, had visited The SCOAN in 2009 in search of a spiritual solution to the problem of militancy. According to Ambassador Horsfall, the spiritual guidance and direction given to them by the man of God resulted in the creation of the Amnesty programme by the late President Umaru Musa Yar’adua.

Ambassador Horsfall believed that if the man of God could solve a national problem that almost crippled the national economy, then his wife’s case was miniature. His candid conviction would eventually prove true indeed. The couple visited The SCOAN and received prayers as well as the Morning Water. As they returned to Abuja and continued to minister the Morning Water, the hand of God upon their case was made manifest. One afternoon, as he was about to have his lunch, Ambassador Horsfall received a cheery news from his wife. She was pregnant and this time, the pregnancy has come to stay. Today, Mrs Horsfall is eight months pregnant. Grateful to God for the miracle, Ambassador Horsfall urged leaders to seek the face of God in everything they do.

To end his testimony, Ambassador Horsfall explained his recent post as Senior Special Assistant to the Political Advisor of the former President of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan. During a time of tension in the in the run-up to the election, there was confusion and worry as to which direction to follow in the government. They had sought advice from different places. Ambassador Horsfall came to The SCOAN and pleaded with Prophet T.B. Joshua for God’s opinion and the man of God clearly stated that the election had been lost and they should concede defeat graciously.

He took the instruction in righteousness back to the Aso Villa and told the president. A few months later, people wondered why the president didn’t fight back or annul the election as he had the powers to do so. This was the reason why.

DELIVERED FROM INDEBTEDNESS AND BLESSED WITH A HOUSE

For Mrs Rebecca Odoi Laryea, it was the problem of indebtedness that brought her to The SCOAN after she and her husband were duped by a trusted family friend who absconded with the sum of eighty thousand dollars paid in by a customer for the purchase of a coaster bus. All efforts to retrieve the money remained futile. The automobile business of the Ghanaian couple ran into murky waters as all their savings went down the drain in their bid to locate the duper. After exhausting all options, the couple visited The SCOAN.

MRS REBECCA ODOI LARYEA

At The SCOAN, they received the Morning Water and returned to Ghana with faith. Ministering the Morning Water, they called on God to save them from the mess they had found themselves in. Within a short time, the man who had absconded with their money called her husband from Dubai, paid her husband’s air fare to the Middle East city, refunded the money for the bus with an extra six thousand dollars on top to enable them purchase the latest brand of coaster. The couple eventually bought and shipped a brand new coaster bus for their business at the expense of the lost-but-found friend.

Apart from recovering their money, the couple who had faced accommodation problems, were able to build an apartment of their own in a prime location in Accra within seven months. Thanking God for taking away shame and reproach from their lives, Mrs Odoi Laryea advised people to look up to God when their human strength fails them.

ELUSIVE VISA GRANTED AT LAST

“There is a brother; you are going to the embassy on Thursday. You have the document. You have been there two to three times but whatever happens, don’t be disappointed…” It was with these words that Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied the case of Mr Hilary Ugochukwu Anyamene. The native of Anambra State, Nigeria was facing challenges with his visa application. As a business man who specialised in marketing American spares, he needed to get his visa in order to go over to the US to ship products to Nigeria. On two occasions, his visa applications were rejected. He made up his mind to apply for a third time and also insisted on MR UGOCHUKWYU ANYAMENEvisiting The SCOAN before embarking on the third journey to the US embassy. Even though friends had tried to discourage him from visiting The SCOAN, his mind was made up. For them, it was better that he should wait and reapply after one year.

Visiting The SCOAN, he received a prophetic message from Prophet T.B. Joshua regarding his visa issue. That message turned around his situation for good. He returned home and prepared for another date with the American embassy. On getting there, the lady who interviewed him only asked a few questions after which she told him that his visa application was successful. Filled with joy and displaying his two-year multiple entry visa, Mr Anyamene thanked God for granting his heart’s desire.

SPIRIT OF PROSTITUTION ARRESTED AND EXECUTED

“I don’t want her to have any good in her life… just to destroy her life to make her miserable… her family – everyone is miserable…” Amidst heavy pummelling by the undiluted power of the Holy Ghost, the evil spirit in the young woman cried out revealing all the wicked plans it had for her life. Even the physical appearance of Miss Biliki showed that something was amiss with her spiritual life. A ring in the nose, another beneath the lips plus a plethora of tattoos all over the body – all those were relics of her association with the marine kingdom.

Even her mother knew that she had an evil spirit which had caused so much havoc in her life. At 15, she absconded from home only to team up with a prostitution cartel in Lagos Island. A woman who traded in prostitutes promised to take her out of the country to Cotonou where she became a professional prostitute. While nine other girls were sold away, she was kept because of herMISS BILIKI GIWA & MOTHER BLURREDage. As she plied her trade in the illicit business, she ran into a man who took her away to a new location. After two weeks, the man left.

 

Young Biliki started working in night clubs to make ends meet. In her long romance with prostitution, she had travelled to a couple of countries, including Niger where she met a witch doctor who promised to exorcise the evil spirit tormenting her life. After spending money for the spiritual exercise, her life became worse. She returned to Cameroon and became a stripper, dancing in strip clubs and exposing her nakedness to the evil delight of irresponsible men. Most of the so-called witch doctors who claimed they would help deliver her from the evil spirit tormenting her life ended up sleeping with her.

She had come to The SCOAN to test the power of God in Prophet T.B. Joshua. That was the greatest but best mistake she made. During Mass Prayer, the fire of the Holy Ghost located her and beat the evil spirit blue-black before sending it back to the pit of hell. Renouncing her former life amid tears, Miss Biliki advised people to put their trust in God while promising to dedicate the rest of her life to serving Him.

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.

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!

The much awaited message from Prophet T.B. Joshua on 29th July 2012 was titled, The Highway To Heaven and was dedicated to the late Professor John Evans Atta Mills, President of Ghana.ImageThe prophet said, “To get to Heaven, you must follow the way of the Cross. The Highway to Heaven starts on this side of death and the entrance is very easy to find”. The Bible says, “Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13). He said, “Paul the Apostle declared that the road to Heaven is not difficult to find or to access. Are you on the right road?” The road is right in your front; it is in the Word of God, he assured.

The prophet said, “The Lord speaks to us through His Word by His Spirit, and Jesus said, ‘I am the Way, the Truth and the Life and no one cometh to the Father except through me’ ” (John 14:6).

He revealed that Jesus Christ died for our sins and broke the power of death by resurrection.

“You need not fear where you are going when you know Jesus is going with you”, the prophet insisted, noting that “Death is not a period, it is only a comma”. This is because of the death of Christ and the resurrection.

He stated that, “We who put our faith in Him, death is not a period but a comma”. “We need to be sure we are ready to depart” he said, stating that, “If you are prepared to die, you are prepared to live.

The prophet said that “Whether you are young or old, what matters is the grace to continue living hereafter. A man may die young, yet be satisfied with living; but a wicked man is not satisfied even with long life”, he revealed, stressing that “Continuing to trust Jesus is the only way to get the things you are not ready for”.

He mentioned that he was not mourning the late President Atta Mills but was celebrating his wonderful life, saying, “I thank God for a life well spent”.

He narrated his first visit to Ghana during a crusade where he met the late President Atta Mills who at the time was the vice president of former president Jerry Rawlings.

“We prayed together and then came the revelation and I told him, ‘You will be a president of this country one day.’ He said, ‘No I am going back to the classroom, I am a professor, a lecturer’. Truly, he went back to the classroom as a lecturer. After some years, I received a phone call from him telling me, ‘I was called to contest as a presidential candidate of a party’. I replied, ‘Remember what I told you’.

He came to The SCOAN and I told him, ‘Your journey – I see three contests, 1st lose, 2nd lose, then you can think of winning to become president’. He said, ‘A losing candidate, 1st time, 2nd time, will people believe such a candidate?’ I said, ‘Let the will of God be done’. With God, all things are possible; this is the voice of God. The relationship was purely based on revelation. When your relationship is based purely on revelation of God, nothing and nothing can break it.”

The Last Hurdle That Saw Him To The Throne

The man of God explained how Atta Mills accepted the revelation and began to believe that he could contest as a presidential candidate. When Atta Mills was running for the third time, the prophet received a phone call from him from South Africa in which he stated that he was booked for an operation.

The prophet prayed over it. After praying, he gave him a call. ‘You said operation. You had a dream some time ago; in that dream, someone was leading you, holding your hand as a guide to show you the way. Does that mean somebody will be holding your hand anywhere you go?’ He replied, ‘Yes, I had such a dream in Canada that I was blind and someone held my hand and was guiding me where to go.’ I said, ‘If you attempt the operation, this is what is going to happen. My brother, don’t try the operation’. He said, ‘Pastor, I would like to attempt one eye first. If it does not work, I will stop it.’ Our dear father went for an operation on one eye. On coming out of the operation, the eye could not work and had also affected the ear. So, he called me, ‘Man of God, I am coming straight to Nigeria.’ That was where the first news was carried that our dear father had died. While the news was everywhere in those days, our father was with me here. When our father arrived at the airport in Nigeria, the first words that came from him were, ‘I will no longer contest; I want to drop the ambition’. I replied, ‘The Lord says you will get there. You can’t change God’s Word’.

The relationship was not just an introduction but purely divine. The man of God spoke of how Atta Mills spent 10 days with him at The SCOAN. ‘We started praying together and the Lord restored the ears and the other eye that had not been operated on. Our father went back to Ghana and started campaigning. The ambition continued. If God used His servant at that period, what do you think that servant cannot do to carry on?

After the election results were out and Atta Mills was inaugurated as President of Ghana, T.B. Joshua explained how he had received another revelation about his journey. ‘The prophecy I received from God was the same prophecy I used that day as a prayer point. I asked God to give him the spirit of a finisher. The second prayer point God gave me was, ‘God, give us the grace to complete the job that we started’. At that moment of celebration, there was nothing that called for that kind of prayer point. I began to see an unchangeable event.

‘He was a promised child being led by revelation’, the prophet told the congregation and viewers. The prophet said that it was not sickness or disease that killed him but it was God’s time. He prayed for the family of the late President and the nation, Ghana and said, ‘Our father is a martyr – the legacy he left behind – an unexplainable unity among political class, that is what our father fought for and won’.

In remembrance of Atta Mills, T.B. Joshua said, ‘What a good man – very modest in his leadership. Africa, we are not mature enough for this kind of leadership. He was a good man but a good man cannot succeed alone.’

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AT 49!

Following the Wise Man message, a glorious time in God’s presence in praise and worship ensued, before Prophet T.B. Joshua came out. “If you rely on the strength that comes from our Lord, Jesus Christ, He will not allow the enemy of your soul to overtake you,” he said, encouraging the congregation.

Using the opportunity to address his upcoming 49th birthday on June 12th, Prophet T.B. Joshua thanked the people for their prayers. Explaining the way and manner God wanted him to celebrate this year, he stated, “My birthday shall be dedicated to prayer for the Church of God, for its unity. It is also an occasion that calls for persistent giving, especially to the needy,” he continued, stressing that people should give every good thing the Lord had given to them.

EVERYONE NEEDS DELIVERANCE

A video was replayed in which Mr Gideon Ibitoye was remarkably delivered after prayer from Wise Man Christopher during last week’s Monday Service. The evil spirit had spoken through him, saying that it was a warrior who had come to cause suffering and poverty in the family.

Addressing the importance of deliverance, Prophet T.B. Joshua said that it was necessary for everyone to pass through deliverance. Referring the congregation to 1 Corinthians 10:13, he explained that even after deliverance, a Christian would still face challenges and trials but that they would lead to his improvement. “When you are delivered, strength will come from above so that the enemy of your soul will not overtake you,” he said.

In his explanation, Mr Ibitoye narrated that he is a youth pastor in his church and never had any inclination that he would be the one to be delivered when they came to The SCOAN. On the contrary, he believed his wife was the one responsible for the problems and expected her to be the one to manifest when the Wise Men prayed. This belief came as a result of a number of pastors who had pointed out that his wife was the architect of their downfall, telling him to beg her for forgiveness and adorn her with gifts of clothes so she would release him from the cage he was in.

Confused, his wife explained that she too ended up suspecting that she might be possessed, after all the pastors had pointed her out to her husband. Mr Ibitoye explained that during the Sunday Service, his entire focus was on his wife during the Wise Men’s prayer, expecting her to react and manifest. Disappointed after nothing seemingly happened, he resolved to return home. His wife, however, insisted that they return for the Monday Service. During the Monday Service, Mr Ibitoye said, after listening to a message from Prophet T.B. Joshua, he began to ask God for a touch from Heaven. As Wise Man Christopher prayed for him during that service, he explained that he just saw light and became very afraid, losing all consciousness and control. “I am not the type of person who believes in that type of thing,” he confessed, adding that he was astonished at the deliverance he received.

Members of the congregation spoke out on the lessons learned from the couples experience and Prophet T.B. Joshua commended Mrs. Ibitoye for standing by her husband despite the accusation and insisting on his return to the church on Monday.

DELIVERED FROM THE SPIRIT OF PROSTITUTION

Miss Pauline, a 5th year Student of Political Science and Public Administration at the University of Benin returned to The SCOAN with three friends following her confession in the church last week. After her deliverance from the spirit that had pushed her into prostitution, Prophet T.B. Joshua called on her to bring some of her colleagues who were also involved in the same lifestyle and desired deliverance.

Her three friends, all schooling in university, somberly told The SCOAN congregation that they were involved in prostitution and this was how they paid their tuition. Prophet T.B. Joshua promised that the church would assist them financially with scholarships to carry on their education without continuing their past lifestyle. The young friends were moved to tears at the announcement, Pauline thanking God on their behalf for rescuing them and providing for their needs.

HEALED FROM PROSTATE CANCER

In his faith building testimony, Mr Alex Okodua said he visited The SCOAN in October 2011 suffering from prostate cancer. At that stage, his condition was critical as he had lost a lot of weight, saw blood in his urine and experienced swelling in his groin. He explained that at this stage he would be going to the toilet 5-6 times in a night alone. The medical doctors advised him to go to India for an operation and even then, the chances of recovery were 50-50.

However, in the midst of his deteriorating condition, one of Mr Okodua’s sons advised him to visit The SCOAN and use the Anointing Water. After receiving and ministering it, he explained that he immediately began sleeping well. Soon, the blood-filled urine had normalized and he was regaining weight again. Amazed at the miraculous work of God in his life, Mr Okodua returned to the hospital for another check. Marveling at the miracle, the doctors confirmed he was free from prostate cancer. To God be the glory!

As Mr Okodua testified, Professor Robinson, the Chief Medical Director of Nnamdi Azikwe University, Awka, attested to what he was saying. He explained that, as a medical doctor, he had referred many of his patients to The SCOAN for healing and had even ministered the Anointing Water in the hospital. He cited the case of a woman whose arm was to be amputated because of a large open wound that had refused to heal. However, after ministering the Anointing Water, the wound closed up and the woman was completely restored.

BARRENNESS OVER AND BREAKTHROUGH RESTORED

Engr. Ugwu and his wife came to The SCOAN with many testimonies to share to God’s glory! Firstly, he explained that he had initially come to The SCOAN with the problem of bedwetting for a long and painful 34 years. At this stage, he and his wife were childless and he was also experiencing setback and disappointment in his business. However, after coming to The SCOAN and ministering the Anointing Water, the Ugwu’s lives were completely transformed!

His bedwetting ceased and shortly afterwards his wife became pregnant, later safely delivering a baby girl named Mary. Employed in a petroleum company, abundant blessing started coming for Engr. Ugwu and he was able to buy a new car and move into a new house. To cap it all, his wife is now pregnant for a second time!

Following the testimonies, Prophet T.B. Joshua led the congregation in a powerful time of mass prayer.  “Your appointment with God is Divine. During Jesus’ earthly ministry, everyone was healed. God has sent me to you to give you something,” he told the excited congregation. He then moved in the midst of the congregation, giving words of prophecy to hundreds of individuals present. We thank God Almighty for what He is doing every week in The SCOAN. Indeed, a million thanks are not enough for what Jesus Christ has done!
