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.

DADDYWhat a splendid and glorious occasion it was for the multitudes that congregated at The SCOAN on Sunday! From the heavenly songs of glorious adoration that soothed broken souls and prepared the way for the anointing of the Holy Ghost, to the power-packed sermons, the beauty of the Lord was irresistible. It did not matter either whether one was worshipping through Emmanuel TV as millions of viewers do worldwide or using online mediums; the touch of our Lord, Jesus Christ, was unmistakable. As the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua launched a chain-smashing prayer against the kingdom of darkness, people could be seen vomiting blood and other poisonous substances the devil had deposited in them to breed sicknesses, disappointments, failures and other vices in their lives. They were declared free of their afflictions, in the name of the Healer and Deliverer, Jesus Christ.

The man of God also mounted the pulpit and delivered a powerful message that brought edification and comfort as people discovered the missing piece to successful and lasting relationships. Titled: NO PERFECT RELATIONSHIP, he urged all to exercise forgiveness at all times, saying, “There is no perfect relationship. Where I am weak, you are strong”.

 

Aided by scriptures from Romans 15:1-4 and Galatians 6-1, Prophet T.B. Joshua reproved the spirit of self-righteousness, saying such a relationship cannot last.

 

He explained: “The word ‘relationship’ means cooperation where people involved benefit or gain. What are we benefiting and what are we gaining? If one is weak in one area, he might be strong in another area. This means, we have our strengths and our weaknesses. We must recognise this in each other. Wife, you must recognise the weakness in your husband and his strength – the area of his strength and weakness. So also, you husband. We must recognise this for our relationship to endure and last.”

 

He added: “This is the secret of my humility. I know you deserve my respect and I also deserve your respect. If I first see you, I should first say, ‘Good morning’. That is what life is all about. Not, I see you but because I am a man of God, I don’t say, ‘Good morning’ and wait to see whether you will greet me or not. I know you deserve my respect, my honour and I too, deserve your respect and your honour. It is not one-sided. That is what relationship is all about. If you reject one because of his weakness, you also reject his strength. If you know your friend’s weakness, help him instead of rejecting him because a person who is a thorn in your flesh today may be your helper tomorrow.”

 
WM DANIELEarlier, Wise Man Daniel preached a life-transforming message titled, ‘God is Interested in Genuine Believers’. He encouraged everyone to be genuine believers and not the kind to whom Jesus Christ is the Lord only when the times are good – when there is money in your pocket. He declared that by His resurrection, Jesus Christ demonstrated that He is worthy of being the object of our faith and belief.

 

“It is never too late to start believing and obeying God’s Word. If we realise that our capacity to believe is not enough, we can offer prayers for faith and Jesus Christ will enlarge our spiritual coasts,” he said.

 

 

TESTIMONIES

Many people came out to testify to the glory of God of what He had accomplished in their lives. Below are a selected few of the wonderful testimonies. Be blessed as you read and do not forget that your testimony is just around the corner:

 

WASTE TURNED TO WEALTH

Life for Mr and Mrs Makgoba from South Africa was a complete contradiction. They were in a waste management business. Contracts were hard to come by and yet, MR & MRS MAKGOBA FROM SA (AW)even when they finally got one, they could not execute it. Firstly, they were not given the go ahead to start the contract for two years. Each time they tried to follow up on the contract, they would be told to wait. Secondly, they did not even have the waste management trucks needed to start the contract. Stuck between a wall and a hard place, Mr Makgoba decided to come to The SCOAN and seek the face of God. They prayed and received the Anointing Water and Anointing Stickers. Back home, they ministered the Anointing Water and prayed together as a family and within a short period of time, God blessed them. From one truck, they raised money and soon, they were able to acquire 13 brand new trucks with which they were able to carry out the contract. Their business has boomed and they are now employers of scores of people. A couple that was staying in a small two-bedroom apartment now have their own palatial building tastefully furnished on a large expanse of land apart from another 8.5 hectares of land already purchased for business purposes, after they had prayed and ministered the Anointing Water. It was a miraculous turnaround in their lives. They advised everyone to wait upon the Lord because God’s time is the best.

 

SAVED FROM BEING CRUSHED TO DEATH

That Mr Duru Ferdinand from Anambra, Nigeria is alive today, is not an ordinary miracle. It is an exceptional rescue by God’s power and one which has to be celebrated with thanksgivings to God; hence, he came to give the glory back to Him through this wonderful testimony, explaining how his life was miraculously saved from a fatal car accident. He was travelling in a public bus one day and following behind them, MR DURU FERDINAND FROM ANAMBRA (AW)was a very big truck. The brakes of the truck behind them failed, resulting in the truck crashing into their vehicle and crushing to death everyone travelling with him in the vehicle. Miraculously, only Mr Duru and a young boy sitting next to him were spared. Before he entered the ill-fated vehicle, he had prayed and ministered the Anointing Water on himself! He said that in those few seconds of near-death, all he noted was that his body was covered in diesel fuel. And to his horror, while he was still stuck in the wreck, he saw a flame of fire starting. He remembered his Anointing Water and with faith, he sprayed it on the fire and it was immediately quenched. Astoundingly, he was also able to sneak out of the wrecked vehicle and when the rescue workers arrived on the scene, they were amazed at how he had escaped alive. The young boy who was seated next to him in the vehicle also survived but had to be cut out of the wreck by the rescue services. Mr Ferdinand gave glory to God for giving him another chance at life. Thank You, Jesus!

 

 

CURSE OF HIV/AIDS BROKEN

Mr Matome Jonathan Mohale from South Africa sat patiently yet anxiously in the doctor’s office, waiting for the results of his blood test to be read out to him and when the doctor did, he had a shock of his life. He had tested positive to MR MATOMEHIV/AIDS 1 and 2.He was devastated, knowing that there was no medical cure to the disease. Given chance, he would have preferred to die than to continue living with the virus and watch himself edge to the grave. He desperately wanted to reverse the time back and avoid all the wrongs that had landed him in the predicament but it is never possible. The symptoms that had forced him to undergo the tests such as headaches, running stomach, dizziness and weaknesses, became worse and he was rushed to hospital. Unable to eat, he found himself on the sickbed, dependent on drips day and night.

 

A few months after his diagnosis, a friend encouraged him to visit The SCOAN. He was not too sure of this, questioning whether it was really possible for one to be cured of such a deadly ailment. He decided to give it a shot and, by faith, he arrived at The SCOAN. That was two years ago in 2012. Placed at the prayer line, Wise Man Harry prayed for him in Jesus’ name and he instantly felt relief. He later received counselling that restored his battered state of mind and was advised to stop blaming himself and instead receive total forgiveness from Jesus. On his return to South Africa, he was determined to live a new life in Christ and abstain from sexual sin; he began to change his pattern of living. He started to develop his relationship with God by reading his Bible every day. A few months later, he went for a blood test and to his profound joy, he was confirmed HIV/AIDS negative. He went to another government approved laboratory where they conducted advanced tests and he was also tested to be negative for HIV/ AIDS.

 

The doctors were surprised how this could be possible. They even asked him if he had visited spiritualists. He told them of his encounter with the Master Healer and Creator of all, Jesus Christ. He admitted his unfaithfulness to his wife and advised all men to remain faithful to their wives and not look for love elsewhere.

 

A final encouragement was for all not to despair or feel despondent but to put their hope in God who is able to reverse every disease and sickness, no matter how fatal.

 

 

I DERIVED JOY TO SEE MEN IN PAIN

Miss Christy Hangula from Namibia was living her life and growing up just like any innocent girl until she was seven years old when the devil hit. From nowhere, she just found herself masturbating. As she grew up, she could masturbate three times in an hour. This spirit of lust destroyed her affection for men. Each time she masturbated by crossing her legs a certain way, it would physically feel as if she was with a man.MISS CHRISTY FROM NAMIBIA [LUCIFER FACEBOOK]

Aspiring to be a model in her teenage years, she opened Facebook accounts on the internet where she marketed herself to potential clients and accepted an offer from a man claiming to be an Indian who said that he could give her an opportunity to be an international model. The man asked her to pose for him via webcam on Skype and do different poses for him in revealing clothes. As she stripped for him, she felt as if something had entered her and she started to receive evil powers and knowledge on how to seduce men. She started seducing men physically and by placing seductive pictures of hers on her Facebook account. She was on a mission to seduce and destroy men. She especially targeted those not interested in her. After seducing them, she would walk out of the relationships just to break their hearts. The evil powers in her eyes were a point of contact for the evil spirit and she could read the minds of her victims before even talking to them.

 

Thank God, she came to The SCOAN last week and received her deliverance from the evil spirit that tormented her. During her deliverance at the SCOAN prayer line, the evil spirit that was in her cried out and identified itself as an agent of lucifer. It also confessed to having been responsible for the wrong things she had done and that it was on a mission to destroy youth. Testifying to the congregation, she warned young women against falling into the trap of accepting offers from strangers on Facebook and other social media sites offering to pay for everything, including travel tickets and accommodation. She warned women that such people were trapping young ladies into posing for pornographic pictures. After her deliverance, she says she now feels free from the spirit of lust and no longer hates men. Having received the Faith Bracelet from the man of God, she is rapidly building her relationship with God each time she prays with it; Jesus Christ is now her best friend.

 

 

FIBROIDS FLUSHED OUT AFTER A FAITH BRACELET TOUCH

Mrs Ene Adeka, a civil servant from Benue, Nigeria was privileged to receive the Faith Bracelet when she visited The SCOAN during the period of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s 51st birthday in June. When the man of God gave her the Faith MRS ENE ADEKA [FAITH BRECALET]Bracelet, he spoke prophetically that the anointing would break every yoke in her life, including any fibroids. She claimed the prophecy by faith and began praying with the Faith Bracelet, believing that the blood of Jesus Christ would flush out every sickness from her system. She noticed that each time her arm with the Faith Bracelet touched her body, she would start shaking. Moments later, she desperately needed to go to the bathroom. On reaching there, what came out was a large mass of blood. It was shortly followed by two more large clots of blood. Instantly feeling relief from the pain and discomfort, she praised God and immediately photographed the flushed out fibroid for evidence in her testimony. Convinced beyond all doubts that she was healed, she returned to the hospital. A test was conducted and confirmed that she was truly free from all fibroids.

 

She encouraged all that self-deliverance is possible. Her son Ode Joshua Adeka who accompanied her for the testimony also received his deliverance on praying with the Faith Bracelet. He was delivered from stubbornness, nightmares and an evil spirit inhabiting his life. His mother testified that even before the Faith Bracelet touched him, he had begun to manifest. He is now a new person entirely. Her advice was simple: All you need to do is believe and meditate on Jesus Christ and His sufficiency while using the Faith Bracelet.

 

CONFESSION OF SCOAN VISIT IMPOSTERS

A couple from Zambia living in Swaziland made a shocking confession on Sunday. Faced with financial challenges, they tried to extort money from people desperate to visit The SCOAN. They placed an advert in the local newspaper advertising that they could facilitate visits to The SCOAN at a registration fee of $100 USD per person. When people started calling them asking whether they were official SCOAN group leaders, they would say they were, whereas The SCOAN was not aware of their activities. The SCOAN does not charge people for visiting the church. However, their ill-conceived idea to dupe people backfired. After placing the advert in the newspaper, their problems became worse and they had to start selling their property to make ends meet. They were even duped by a con man for the first time in their life after placing the fraudulent advert. One day, a man called and warned them to stop their dubious activities and they had to switch off their mobile phones. They confessed their wrong doing and asked God and the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua to forgive them. They advised people that they should be careful not to fall into the hands of fraudsters masquerading as official group leaders of The SCOAN. He said, “Those indulging in such fraudulent activities should refrain immediately because you cannot hide from the Holy Spirit.”

 

The service closed with the ministration of the New Anointing Water by the evangelists during which many were liberated from demonic forces.

This is an official statement from Prophet T.B. Joshua. My attention has been drawn to an online article headlined ‘Pastor T.B. Joshua Revealed As Man Behind Al-Mustapha’s Release’ written by Sahara Reporters.

This article is from the enemy. They should not drag me into the issue of politics. If I was ever to go to Aso Rock, I would go publicly. I have tb-joshuaalready told you how I met Al-Mustapha. Don’t put words in my mouth. I explained that I got to know him many years ago when a petition was addressed to General Bamaiyi who was the then Chairman of the NDLEA. I spent nine days with them for investigation and they found the whole thing to be a fabrication.

From there, I was taken to see the president where I met Mustapha. I was able to reveal to them who I am by telling them what was to come as a prophet. I told him that he would spend several years in prison and would be finally released which no one else had ever told him. That is why you saw him coming here as his first port of call. Where there is no vision, people perish.

It is therefore very malicious for Sahara Reporters to attach any political meanings to Al-Mustapha’s visit. At no time did I tell President Jonathan that his political fortune rested with setting Al-Mustapha free, neither did I ever suggest that Chief James Ibori, former Delta State Governor be brought back to Nigeria to assist the president in the 2015 presidential election.

Count me out of the politics of hatred.

The shocking case of a man duped to the tune of N3million by fraudsters using the name of TB Joshua for personal gain and fame…

“May the Lord when He comes find us watching and waiting.” TB Joshua

A gang of con artists that specialise in using the name of Prophet TB Joshua in bilking people out of large sums of their hard-earned money was, penultimate Sunday, exposed at The Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN.

One daring and long-running escapade of the crooks came to a dramatic end when their victim, Felix Doye Yabrifa, finally smelt a rat. The Bayelsa State based businessman was reacting to the constant warning broadcast on SCOAN’s satellite television channel, Emmanuel TV, alerting viewers to the menace of people and churches who bandy the prophet’s name about for dubious purposes. He decided on a fact-finding mission to The Synagogue after repeatedly hearing the warnings.

Four years ago, Yarbifa was in his Bayelsa base when a three-man group led by an old lady arrived, uninvited. They told him they were specifically sent to him by Prophet TB Joshua to perform certain spiritual exercises that would last only three days. On the instruction of the prophet, they said, he (Yabrifa) should take care of them for the period the exercise lasted. “Initially I was reluctant because of the cost implication of taking care of three persons – hotel accommodation, feeding and logistics,” said Yabrifa, “but when the name of Prophet TB Joshua was mentioned, I had no alternative than to accommodate them.”

First, he took them to his home where their initially proposed three-day stay stretched to a whole three weeks. Next, he moved them to a hotel. But a nightmarish four year spell for the hapless businessman was only just beginning. Eventually, well over three million Naira of his cold, hard cash simply went down the drain during the whole ordeal.

Running Low On Cash
It was as if the conmen had put a hex on Yabrifa. Willy-nilly, for eight months, he just continued to do the bidding of these strangers, continuously doling out cash to pay their hotel bills and taking care of their other needs. Then, he began to run low on cash, as his bills ran up.

As a last resort, he settled for a rented four- bedroom apartment into which he
moved his uninvited guests. As at when he addressed the congregation at The Synagogue Church of All Nations that Sunday, they were still in the rented apartment in Bayelsa State. Continued Yabrifa, “Each time they talked to me, it was like they put fear in me. So wherever I was, I will just have to bring out the money. Even when I was closing my account, I didn’t even know.”

Sacrifice To Marine Spirits
The confident tricksters got even more daring and more diabolical. Their leader, the elderly lady, had Yabrifa believe that she was in constant touch with Pastor Joshua: “She confirmed to me that she was constantly in touch with the man of God and that they communicate in spirit on a daily basis,” narrated the businessman, who also told the congregation of worshippers at the church that the con-artists told him they the primary aim of their visit was to pray for the people of Bayelsa State and then put a stop to a refinery project that was having some financial problems.

Even as he continued to take care of them, they made new demands on Yabrifa and even his France-based business partner who had waded into the matter, to bail his business associate out of his financial mess. From his partner, they demanded for N1million to be paid into their account every month, and from Yabrifa himself, that the sum of N20,000 be given them every week. When his partner heard of the new demands, he protested. On his own part, Yabrifa saw that despite all he was doing, there was no progress for the better, whatsoever. “Besides, they were introducing me to something contrary to what was happening in The Synagogue Church by telling me to provide money to buy items for them to go and sacrifice to marine spirits here and there,“ Yabrifa noted.

Email
From then on, the businessman could no longer fold his arms and swallow what he had condoned for four long years. He had also been hearing the announcements on Emmanuel TV and this heightened his suspicion. He quickly emailed The Synagogue Church to find out the truth: “When I heard the publications and broadcasts on Emmanuel TV, I became very suspicious and decided to write this very email thinking that when I come here today, at least I would know the truth,” said he, brandishing a copy of the email he had written to The Synagogue as he narrated his ordeal to the congregation.

To his greatest amazement, when he arrived at The Synagogue Church that Sunday, he ran into the ringleader of the group, an elderly woman who was fingered by the victim and was quickly picked up by security agents. “Funny enough, this afternoon I saw one of them so I said well, let me put this across to the man of God.” She was brought into the church where Yabrifa narrated his ordeal, then later taken to Kaiama with her victim, where the Emmanuel TV crew videoed all the locations where the fraud allegedly took place, to corroborate Yabrifa’s allegations. Finally, Yabrifa and the television crew returned to Lagos with the suspect and the rest of her gang in tow.

Forgiveness and Deliverance
The following Sunday the suspected conmen were brought to The SCOAN. First, a video recording of the previous week’s encounter was played back for the congregation, to refresh their memory. The Emmanuel TV’s trip to Bayelsa State was also played back for the audience. Then, Yabrifa continued his story from where he stopped. Prophet TB Joshua occasionally interjected, as he spoke, on the recorded video: “The person he is talking about mistakenly entered here today and they grabbed one of them… he (Yabrifa) was already going, during the break. He just moved outside and he saw one. They would not enter the church, they are always hanging around…”

Finally, the prophet, describing the entire saga as irritating, asked that the narration be stopped, midway into the evidence of the second suspect, a tall, well-built, well-turned out middle-aged man that looked more like a respected tribal chief, than a con-artist. He proceeded to administer prayers and deliverance on them, while thanking everyone in the audience, especially Yabrifa and the people of Bayelsa Sate, for forgiving the suspected culprits. “Let us put all this behind us,” he pleaded.

“People of Bayelsa, thank you,” continued the prophet, “forgiveness is our key. Thank you for forgiving her and her group, may God strengthen your desire for Him. I know that if you people did not forgive her, today, the issue would have been a different question. And thank you, my people, people of God, for forgiving her.” The leader of the group, the elderly lady who was first apprehended the previous week had her turn to speak. Looking a bit more remorseful than the previous week when she was first apprehended, her statement was quite simple: “My name is Marina Patrick… all the things wey him (Yabrifa) talk about me is true, I carry him go water… all the things wey him talk about me is true…”

Joshua used the occasion to preach the virtues of forgiveness to his congregation. “When you listen to the confessions, there is nothing we are trying to say than go and forgive those who sin against you. That’s all. We are indirectly communicating to you that you too should forgive those who have sinned against you. No matter how big or small, forgive. Leave it for God. God will fight for you. We are only preaching to you the gospel of forgiveness.”

Blackmail
Going down memory lane, Prophet TB Joshua told his congregation that there is nothing he and The SCOAN have not been accused of in the past. He recalled an incident that happened in The Synagogue Church three years ago. A blind man had been healed and his sight restored. As the man began to chant and praise God and give testimony, some people went straight to the man and offered him N1.2million, if he could just deny the miracle he received and declare it was fake. “The man refused the offer of money and had to run away because they wanted to kill him,” said the prophet. “He had to abandon his home because they said they would come at him. There are lots of things like that.”

Meanwhile, during the same Sunday service, a newspaper which reported in its Tuesday May 19, 2009 edition, that a woman and her son disappeared at The Synagogue Church Of All Nations, was displayed side by side the same woman who was reported to have gone missing with her son.
