There are no mistakes in God’s plan for His children. What may seem a problem in our eyes may be the required ingredients God uses to catapult us to greatness.  Evangelist Elizabeth delved into the incomprehensibility of God’s will to human thinking, stressing that what we think about the delay in our miracles is not necessarily true. In a message tagged TO DELAY IS NOT TO DENY, she summed up the totality of our human conclusions (when things don’t seem to go our way) in the following words: “When sometimes in your effort to achieve something it seems like your speed, your motion is delayed. Sometimes when you pray it seems like you have been denied the answer or the answer is unnecessarily delayed. In this world God has purposely kept us in the dark concerning future events. The situation at hand may look like delay, but it is not. My father in the Lord, Prophet T.B. Joshua nicely sums it up that the slow movement of a tiger is not a mistake but a calculated accuracy. God makes our troubles work for our advancement. He makes our delay work for our advancement. As a Christian when your miracle is delayed you are about to receive the mother of miracles; I mean, a true Christian will know that to delay is not to deny.


Evangelist Elizabeth

With these thoughtful words written on marble coupled with the ministration of The SCOAN Choir, The SCOAN Sunday service of October 4, 2015 was a stirring occasion that created a platform for thanksgiving, testimony and repentance through Christ our Lord.



Engineer Stephen Kure worked so hard to make money but ended up wasting it all on booze. He drank himself to tatters and incurred the wrath of his wife who tried all within her means to put a stop to his unwholesome habit. For 36 years, it was all struggles with the yoke of alcoholism. All his earnings went down the drain as he could not point to one important thing he had done with his money. His immoral flair for women was also a thing of concern. After drinking, he would mess around with women, embarrassing his family, especially his wife.

One day, after watching Prophet T.B. Joshua’s demonstration of God’s power on Emmanuel TV, Engineer Kure asked himself some pertinent questions and decided to sneak down to Lagos to visit The SCOAN without the knowledge of his wife. On getting to The SCOAN, he received the Morning Water and returned to his base in Warri, Nigeria. Back home, he would minister the Morning Water, asking Jesus to help him out of his terrible habit. To his utmost surprise, the urge to drink and womanise disappeared within days of his ministering the Morning Water. Even his wife was amazed at the change that took over the life of her husband.


Engineer Stephen Kure And Wife

To God be all the praise and adoration, Engineer Kure is now a man of purpose as his life has taken a positive turn. Today, he is the proud owner of a guest house and has bought cars for himself and his wife. God has indeed restored to him what the caterpillar and locusts had eaten out of his life! Testifying in company of his wife, he advised people with similar challenges to seek God’s help just like he did.



Mr Tossa Francis was almost reduced to a debilitated state by a degenerated vertebrae that rendered him totally inactive for 5 years. He could not walk but depended on his wife and twin brother for mobility. Whenever he wanted to ease himself or take his bath, they would carry him to the toilet and bathroom, respectively. All quests for medical help failed as even the doctors insisted he had to undergo surgery abroad, particularly in France. Feelings of hopelessness and doom were already setting in even as he concluded he was going to die.

On the verge of his despondency, a glimmer of hope came. A friend introduced him to Emmanuel TV. Immediately, he installed the cable and began to watch and marvel at the undiluted display of God’s illimitable power. Convinced that his case would not escape the anointing he had seen on Emmanuel TV, he decided to send his twin brother down to The SCOAN to get him the Morning Water. His twin brother eventually received the Morning Water and returned home to minister it on his brother.


Mr Tossa Francis And Family

The result was almost instantaneous. After ministering the Morning Water on his back and mouth, he felt a sensation and the urge to urinate. When he got to the toilet, he passed out blood mixed with blackish substances. As soon as the urine ended, he heard a voice tell him to rise up and walk. In faith, he obeyed and walked unaided for the first time in a long while. There was jubilation in the family for the healing of Mr Francis. The blood of Jesus present in the Morning Water has wiped away the tears and pain in Mr Francis’ life. Thanking God in company of his wife and twin brother, Mr Francis urged people with similar cases to believe in God and in His servant, Prophet T.B. Joshua.


Mr Eze Cajetan experienced a lot of challenges that almost spurred him into the decision to seek greener pastures abroad. But his story would later change after an encounter with Emmanuel TV. A man who came to install Cable TV caught his attention when he tuned to Emmanuel TV. Mr Cajetan was impressed and inspired by the miracles he witnessed on the station. His wife was also moved by the miracles she saw. From that moment, Mr Cajetan started attending The SCOAN service and received the Morning Water which he ministered incessantly.

The first transformation he experienced was that his building projects which usually lasted over 1 year lasted only 5 months after he had ministered the Morning Water on the foundation. With the Morning Stickers placed all around his building, thieves who had been stealing his possessions without being caught did not find it business as usual anymore. On one occasion, he caught a thief at his building site lying down with stolen items, unable to escape. It took the confession of the thief and Mr Cajetan’s forgiveness for the intruder to be set free.


Mr Eze Cajetan And Wife

Mr Cajetan also thanked God for saving his family from armed robbers (whom his wife had dreamt about earlier) after they had prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV, ministered the Morning Water and prayed with the Faith Bracelet. The couple advised people all over the world to remember to trust God in times of trouble and run to Him by coming to The SCOAN.


Mrs Laura Westgate from South Africa, suffered from the yoke of gambling which had been a generational curse right from her grandfather. She would spend thousands of rands at the casino, gambling and trying to make more money. She was so engrossed in the habit that she would sneak out of the house at night just to go to the casino to gamble. At a time, she sold her car worth between 10 to 15 thousand rands for a paltry 250 rands just to satiate her gambling appetite.

She tried to stop the habit that ravaged her life for 25 years but could not. She visited many psychologists and even checked into Gambling Anonymous, a rehabilitation group for gambling addicts but all her efforts proved futile. One day, she visited The SCOAN and received the Morning Water. After ministering the Morning Water, the urge to gamble ceased almost immediately. Since then, she has not gambled till today. Thanking God for delivering her from the generational yoke, Mrs Westgate also thanked God for protecting the life of her daughter in-law during a car accident in which the car somersaulted three times. Mrs Westgate advised people to see the Morning Water as a medium through which God has instructed His servant to bring healing and breakthrough to the world. Meanwhile, Mr Westgate openly acknowledged the power of God at The SCOAN and repented of his induced misgivings about the ministry and the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, blaming them on the unfounded falsehood propagated by disgruntled persons, including some sections of the clergy.

Mrs Florence Atam, a staff of the Ministry of Telecommunications in Cameroon was involved in an accident that left her with a broken ankle and dislocated leg bone. She managed to move around with crutches. Doctors recommended an operation but she rejected the idea and preferred to come to The SCOAN where she believed strongly that she would get total healing. Coming all the way from Cameroon with crutches, she arrived at The SCOAN and was placed at the Prayer Line where the man of God laid hands on her. As soon as the man of God touched her, she dropped her crutches and walked on her feet. According to her, something left her body.


Mrs Florence Atam

Mrs Atam also thanked God for giving her a very good eye sight at 69. She testified that her continued ministration of the Morning Water on her eyes made them very sharp and sound. She reads without using glasses. Ministration of the Morning Water also enabled her to get a one year American visa after several previous failed attempts. The same Morning Water helped to restore and redeem the lives of her children abroad. Filled with joy and a thankful heart, Mrs Atam urged Nigerians to cherish the gifts God has given them in the person of Prophet T.B. Joshua and The SCOAN.


Diagnosed with an internal hernia that triggered other discomforting experiences, Mr Rhyan Monteiro from South Africa, searched for lasting medical solution but found none. As he battled with all the discomfort that came with the internal hernia, his case became akin to jumping from frying pan to fire. Doctors discovered he also suffered from an incurable ear disease. With all options exhausted, he reckoned that his problem would be solved only by God and thus decided to visit The SCOAN where the man of God laid hands on him and restored his health to its normal state. According to him, since that encounter with the man of God, everything that troubled his life has disappeared.


Mr Monteiro

Mr Monteiro further testified to the deliverance and glory that overtook his life after that encounter with Prophet T.B. Joshua. He was delivered from the spirit of lust, graduated from school as one of the best students and was blessed financially with a multi-million rand contract. He confessed that prior to visiting The SCOAN, his life was a statement of sorrow punctuated by sickness, hardship and lack. Today, he rejoices in the glory of restoration and redemption. He advised people to keep faith in God as He alone is capable of doing great things that no one else can do for them.


Mr Bobby Yawson’s problems started when as a young boy, his mother took him to consult a witch doctor that ended up falling in love with him. After that fetish association, he would always find the witch doctor in his dream, making love with him. His life became contaminated as he found himself behaving completely out of sync with himself. He would do things he never wanted to do and eventually became a habitat for disappointments and all sorts of negative experiences. Matters came to a head when he testified against himself in a court case and landed in prison.

Right inside the prison, he would stay back to watch Emmanuel TV while other inmates go to play football. It was while praying along with the man of God via Emmanuel TV that his redemption came. After stretching his hand to the screen to pray along with the man of God, an order came from the court requesting his immediate release, having realised that he testified against himself ignorantly. After his release, he searched for The SCOAN in Ghana and met a member who encouraged him to visit Nigeria. To do this, he had to sell some of his properties to finance his trip to Nigeria but by his reckoning, it was well worth it.

When he arrived at The SCOAN, he received the Morning Water and returned to his native Ghana, ministering it in prayer. Almost immediately, his life began to change. Businesses started coming in while finances improved. He went on business trips to China and received favour from a kind-hearted stranger who accommodated him without demanding for a dime. Today, he owns a joint venture company dealing in Solar Energy in which he enjoys a higher 60 percent stake. He is also the owner of a fleet of exotic cars and is currently building an estate. He advised people who are experiencing what he went through to wait for God’s time for their own breakthrough.


Mr Bobby Yawson


A professional footballer, Mr Trabi Jean-Maurice’s career was characterised by setback at the point of breakthrough; whenever he was about to take a step forward in his career, something terrible would happen and threaten his career. While undergoing trials in a big football club that wanted to sign him, he broke his ankle and had to be dressed in POP for days. After the POP was removed, his ankle became swollen and put an end to his dream of playing football at the highest level.

As he battled with the pain and discomfort, a family member introduced him to The SCOAN and advised him to come to Nigeria. He arrived in Nigeria and was accompanied to The SCOAN by his uncle. At The SCOAN, he received the Morning Water which his uncle ministered on his broken ankle. When he woke up in the morning, the broken and swollen ankle was healed completely. He was overtaken by joy as he ran around the house in awe of the miracle. Testifying before The SCOAN congregation, juggling a football, he observed that God is the answer to all troubles.


Mr Trabi Jean-Maurice


The entire congregation of The SCOAN rose to their feet as a man dressed in a white native uniform and his sister took the stage. Mr Jude Oraka had suffered from a chronic skin disease for six horrible years. The disease had so warped and twisted the skin that it began to shatter, flake, peel and fall to the floor all over his body. The plague started from his back, crept onto his stomach and chest, moved down his legs then invaded his head, eyes and ears. They visited so many hospitals and herbal homes but the problem became a curse with no solution. People would start running from them, asking if he was a ghost or a human being. Fighting back the tears, his sister said she did not know that Jesus Christ was still alive and could bring her brother back to life until they set foot in the arena of liberty at The SCOAN. July 5th they came to The SCOAN with a problem beyond human understanding but not beyond God’s understanding.

Prior to their visit, the family had gathered to try and find a solution. Nobody had any until Jude’s sister voiced out that there was only one place where this problem could be overcome – The SCOAN of Prophet T.B. Joshua.

All his brothers had given up hope saying that their brother was already a walking corpse. They said he would die on the way to Lagos, but his sister said that they had to take the step of faith. “Because of the terrible condition, you could not touch him or support him because the skin would peel off his body and gum to you” his sister said.





To bring him to Lagos from their village was a long distance. They clothed every part of his body so that no one could see what was wrong and they paid a driver a lot of money to take them from Anambra to Lagos. His skin kept peeling all over the vehicles. Another driver accepted to charge them double to take them to Ikotun, near The SCOAN. There were a lot of hoteliers who usually came to get customers at the major bus stops but when they saw him, he was not the kind of customer they were looking for; they all ran away. They ended up standing by the road in an unfamiliar place for over an hour until a certain woman finally agreed to house them for double payment once again. Arriving during the week, before they went to The SCOAN, they first went to a hospital for treatment before the Sunday service. As they approached the reception, panic ensued and all the patients in that ward ran away. The doctors said they would only treat him outside the hospital. Sometimes, they would even use a broom to scratch the peeling skin off him to try and give him a little relief. Then, the glorious day came when they attended the Prayer Line service at The SCOAN. Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for him in the name of Jesus Christ and that was it. Prophesying that the cause of the fearsome affliction was poison he had taken, the man of God commanded the poison out of his life after which pronouncement, Mr Jude instantly began vomiting out slimy looking substances. In no time at all, everything was completely restored.

He said that during his affliction, his body felt hot like a radiator all day long and his skin was always itching and throbbing severely which caused a deadening irritation felt to the core. He needed an assistant to do everything, even to go to the toilet and it was his ‘lovely sister’ who did everything for him and stood by him when others were too afraid to. When people would see him walking, they would start running in terror that they might also be cursed with his affliction.


Mr Jude Oraka And Sister

Since his encounter with the man of God, he began to recover until this day in which he presented himself live in the church to testify to the goodness of God. He feels no pain anymore. When he came to the church for prayer, he could not even bend down but now, he can do everything a normal healthy human being can do. He advised everybody never to give up, no matter how dire their condition was and to trust in the goodness of God.

“For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” HABAKKUK 2:3 KJV

 Brethren, God is working out something for your good. To delay is not to deny.

The SCOAN Sunday Service of September 27, 2015 was an epic experience at the Arena of Liberty.

Evang Dupe

Evang Dupe

Evangelist Dupe’s message blended well with the resilience of the entire congregation who expressed themselves in praise and worship as the Emmanuel Singers provided the musical impetus for the spiritual edification of all present. With the instructive words taken from her thoughtful message titled THE RACE OF LIFE, Evangelist Dupe said, Instead of magnifying the causes of your fears, you ought to arm yourself with the thoughts of God, His sovereignty and invisible world. The quality of faith is not measured by our attitude to God when things are good but when times are hard – I mean, when our fate seems to hang in the balance. Don’t forget our Lord’s prayer to Simon in Luke 22:32. Jesus said to him, ‘I pray your faith will not fail’. Don’t abandon your faith in trials. Trials are the soil in which faith flourishes. Real faith thrives on a test. In the face of life’s uncertainties, don’t give up; keep calm and be determined. You with God are majority. No matter what life brings, no matter what happens, you are under His eyes”.






Mrs Joy Peters from South Africa had tasted poverty at the most extreme level. She was retrenched from work in the private sector and left to wallow in abject penury and indebtedness. Her creditors kept calling to recover their money but how could she pay those debts when even finding coins to buy bread was almost impossible? Her cars, the most significant assets she had, were on the verge of being repossessed by her creditors. However, a visit to The SCOAN would become the precursor to her restoration. There, she received prayer from Prophet T.B. Joshua and the Morning Water.

Mrs Peters returned to her country in high hopes, believing that the much desired change was just a moment away. Ministering the Morning Water and saturating herself in prayer and the Word of God, she prepared her mind for the approaching glory. Barely two months after her visit to The SCOAN, she received a call that propelled her to an executive position in the second highest office in South Africa. The caller stated that she was being appointed as a ministerial spokesperson. The improbability of her story is a testament to God’s incomprehensibility – for He uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise. It is ordinarily unimaginable that a woman who could hardly feed herself ends up as the spokesperson of an important national minister. It can only be God!

The position in which she was placed is usually given to highly experienced government officials, as confirmed by her colleagues who marvelled at the mystery surrounding her employment. They further wondered at the grace of God which enabled her to carry out her responsibilities with excellence. Apart from receiving a brand new luxury car, Mrs Peters was also blessed with a six room home, rent-free for as long as she desired. She agreed that her restoration was miraculous while thanking God for making her smile once more. She advised people to believe in the deliverance taking place at The SCOAN.




Honourable Habila Timothy from Taraba, Nigeria was a successful civil servant cajoled into politics by his local community who felt he had all it took to lead them. They wanted him to run for a seat in the Taraba State House of Assembly. In his first attempt in 2010, he lost by an atrocious margin. Not only was the campaign lost but so was his wealth. Life suddenly became difficult as he found it increasingly difficult to pay his bills. He even went to the extent of selling some of his property in order to make ends meet.

Sitting in a hotel room in the north central city of Jos, Nigeria, he came across Emmanuel TV and was impressed with what he saw. By the time he returned to his family, he convinced his wife about the power of God at The SCOAN and concluded it was imperative to visit the Arena of Liberty. He installed the Emmanuel TV cable in his house and continued to watch the power of God on display with members of his family. When he eventually visited The SCOAN, he was arranged for the prayer line where the man of God prayed for him and gave him the Faith Bracelet and Morning Water. According to Honourable Habila, “Something left me and I felt light after the man of God laid hands on me”. He continued to use the anointed materials together with his family.

In 2014, another call from his people saw him revisiting his political ambition. Even though he was not financially buoyant, he was able to raise enough money to purchase the nomination form. Unfortunately, he did not win the primaries. His people advised him to join another party in hopes that he could still win. Heeding their advice, he joined an unknown party and surprisingly won the primaries. Stunned, his opponents took him to court, seeking a nullification of his election on spurious grounds.

While the legal battle raged, he called the Emmanuel TV prayer and counselling line and prayed with one of the prayer warriors. To his great joy, after the prayer, he learned that the petition against him had been struck out by the court in his favour. He was legally declared the rightful candidate for the seat he occupied in the Taraba State House of Assembly. Apart from being a member of his state’s House of Assembly, he also doubles as the Deputy Minority Leader of the House. To God be the glory!




Mr Samuel Durojaiye, a Nigerian based in the UK, was embattled and confused, his career as a financial service provider hit by the then global economic melt-down. For five years, he was out of employment, barely managing to survive with his family. His wife discovered Emmanuel TV, Prophet T.B. Joshua and The SCOAN while researching on spiritual matters via the internet. Convinced from what he had seen of the man of God and his ministry on YouTube, Mr Durojaiye made up his mind to visit The SCOAN in search of solution.

After arriving in Nigeria after a 28 year absence, Mr Durojaiye visited The SCOAN on a Sunday and received a prophetic revelation from the man of God. Walking straight to him, Prophet T.B. Joshua asked him, “Have they shared the will?” He suddenly felt a mighty force coming towards him as the man of God prayed for him. The presence of God he felt after the prayer, gave him the assurance that his problems were over from that moment. Leaving The SCOAN, he visited his family home for the first time in almost three decades and was surprised to discover that an in-law had recently passed on and his will was being fought over – exactly as prophesied.

Back in the UK, he ministered the Morning Water to his family, house and documents. Shortly afterwards, Mr Durojaiye submitted an application to become a member of the Association of Certified Public Accountants in the UK and was accepted. With this advancement, he started his own firm and life began to take a promising turn. Business started flowing in from different angles as he placed the Morning Sticker placed on all the doors of his office. Distinguished professionals chased him with jobs. He became an accountant of choice and a mortgage adviser. He was subsequently appointed as an independent mortgage adviser for a UK firm with a fantastic remuneration package. He now manages more than 250 business portfolios and has embarked on a massive building project on the plots of land he had left lying fallow in Nigeria for many years. Mr. Durojaiye is full of gratitude to God for using Prophet T.B. Joshua and The SCOAN to bring substance and meaning into his once meaningless life.

Those who are rich in every sense of the Word of God understand that life is a learning experience.
When we accept adversity enduring every pain, then we will learn what we should know;
our grief will turn to gain.

At The SCOAN Sunday service of September 20, 2015, true worship was both demonstrated and elucidated.



While the choir got everyone on their feet in excellent praise and worship, Evangelist Yetunde took the congregation on an excursion into those things the true Christian must do to please God, irrespective of the prevailing circumstances.
According to her, “It is very important for us as Christians to always appreciate God in everything we do in life whether in good times or in hard times. When we succeed in life, we must give Him all the glory and on the other hand, if we fail, we must submit to His will. The law of life includes joy, peace, comfort and contentment that come from the Lord.
In life, man is given the opportunity to choose among many alternatives that surround him. The choice he makes determines who he is before God because the Bible makes it clear that the first place we are to prosper is in our spiritual life. The best antidote against the poison of sin is to walk in the Spirit because in the arena of liberty the key is not to suppress the flesh but the key is to walk in the Spirit”. True worship indeed, is in the Spirit and it pleases God.






Mr Christopher Okoroafor tasted poverty in its most dehumanising form. Life was merely a shadow as he begged to survive. His mosquito net business yielded nothing but empty pockets. All ends refused to meet in his favour as nightmares stole the comfort of his sleep. He continued to drag on with his life until he came to The SCOAN and had an encounter with the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. Seated in the congregation during a Sunday service, the man of God walked up to him and told him to thank God for not being convicted for a crime he was innocent of. He immediately affirmed the prophecy by narrating his unpalatable ordeal with a young man who committed suicide and almost implicated him. After confirming the prophecy, he received prayer and the Morning Water from the man of God. Since then, things took a positive turn. He started a textile business, importing materials from China.

Today, he owns a magnificent building and exotic cars. Thanking God for the transformation of his life, he spared no words in expressing his appreciation for another miracle in which the Morning Sticker in his warehouse prevented loss of lives and property when a trailer rammed into it. Mr Okoroafor advised people to run to God whenever situations go beyond their ability.



Miss Salwa Braimah graduated with a first class degree from a Ghanaian university and was encouraged to apply for a commonwealth scholarship by her lecturers. Though she was passionate about education, she was not keen on the idea of furthering her studies but bowed to the pressure from teachers and family members and applied.



To her surprise, she was denied the scholarship but thought little of it and decided that she would prefer to work for a while to raise some money. Some years later, the desire to continue her education was fanned into flames and she applied for the scholarship once again. She came to The SCOAN and received the Morning Water but did not minister it, thinking that as a first class product, it would be a stroll in the park getting the scholarship. However, when the names of successful applicants were released her name was conspicuously missing. She was disappointed but decided to try the next year.

When another opportunity came up in 2014, she applied. This time, she had learnt to build her faith in God through the teachings of Prophet T.B. Joshua. Her love work became pronounced. As she was applying for the scholarship this time around, she ministered the Morning Water on the screen of the computer through which she did her online application. By the time the names of successful applicants were released, she was among the lucky ones granted an all-expense-paid scholarship covering travel to the United Kingdom where her course in Construction Project Management would take place, as well as tuition, accommodation and welfare. Filled with joy and a new-found faith in God, Miss Braimah observed that delay is not denial.




Mrs Maria Yaluwu was at the mercy of a leg ulcer that was toying with her life. The ailment would disappear after treatment only to reappear some months later. The scenario was not funny as she could not continue with her normal business life prompting her children to take time out from their matrimonial homes to lend a helping hand. But in spite of all their efforts, no solution was in sight. At last, doctors recommended amputation as the only way out. Her children, instead of succumbing to the suggestion of amputation, brought her to The SCOAN.

When Mrs Yaluwu arrived in Lagos in company of her children, she was lodged in a hotel while her children got the Morning Water from The SCOAN.



On returning to the hotel room and ministering the Morning Water on her, what happened next was amazing. As soon as the Morning Water was ministered, Mrs Yaluwu suddenly regained her strength and composure and sprang to her feet almost immediately as though she had never been disturbed by the leg ulcer. Testifying before the congregation, Mrs Yaluwu’s children glorified God for the seamless way their mother’s injury was healed through the medium of the Morning Water. They encouraged people to have faith in God’s ability to set them free from all bondages.


While Hon Martins Aza was labouring with the yoke of the spirit of bedwetting, poverty was also strangling the life out of him. The bedwetting problem was so embarrassing that he bathed his wife with urine after their wedding. He battled with this problem and gradually built his faith watching the exploits of the man of God on Emmanuel TV. He made up his mind to put an end to the disgrace. He came to The SCOAN and received the Morning Water which he ministered on himself. According to him, since that day, the problem of bedwetting became history. He is totally delivered.



As he continued to minister the Morning Water, the poverty that had held him captive for so long disappeared. He was blessed with four cars and a booming business and thought that God was done with him. To his surprise, he was introduced into politics in his native Benue State of Nigeria but never dreamt he could succeed with the power brokers in the murky waters of politics. While making consultations to ensure victory in his political ambition, his Morning Sticker caught the attention of a Muslim brother who confirmed that the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua is a true man of God. The brother encouraged him never to toy with the spiritual materials he received at The SCOAN. In spite of all the intrigues that characterised the politicking process, he emerged the honourable member representing Makurdi North constituency in the Benue State House of Assembly. He also doubles as the chairman of the House committee on Youth and Sports. Hon Aza advised people to have faith in God as He is using every medium to express Himself on Emmanuel TV.


Mr Wilson Ojogbo, a seaman by profession, was an unrepentant liquor monger. He was introduced into drinking by his late father who used local gin as libation to the idols he served. At age 8, Mr Ojogbo was already drinking to the extent that he would sneak into his father’s room and drink himself into a stupor. In spite of all the beatings from his parents, the drinking habit grew with him and refused to abate. When he clocked 12, he had added Indian hemp to his evil menu. It got to a time that he would not have breakfast unless he gulped a mixture of local gin and Indian hemp known as “monkey tail”.



When he got married and started working, the habit increased. He would drink and drive himself home, constituting a nuisance to his wife who greatly detested his lifestyle. On one occasion, stone drunk, he got involved in a ghastly motor accident. Anyone who saw the car after the accident would never believe that its driver survived. But the bubble soon burst after he failed a series of alcohol/drug usage tests. Having failed the test three times, he lost his job and was left to face the stark realities of joblessness. As he wallowed in those hard times, he made Emmanuel TV a companion and decided to come to The SCOAN to seek God’s help. After receiving and ministering the Morning Water, his life changed. The urge for alcohol ceased. As he continued ministering the Morning Water, three different companies showed interest in him. God eventually restored him to a very good job. He now has savings and enjoys a great time with his family. He advised fathers not to expose their kids to bad habits like alcoholism.

“To God’s power, nothing is impossible! We have seen a sinner’s character being healed in the name of Jesus. We have seen a drunkard becoming sober, a harlot becoming chaste, an angry man becoming gentle, a liar becoming truthful – simply by trusting in Jesus Christ! Even though Jesus Christ is no longer visible in our midst, His power to save has not stopped and His grace to forgive has not ended. Jesus forgave and still forgives all manner of sins!”


                EVANGELIST GBENGA

With these words, Evangelist Gbenga called on Christians all over the world to jettison their past and focus on the infallible ability of God to do all things. In a message titled FORGET THE PAST, he reiterates God’s willingness to wipe away our past and give us a new life of glory in Christ Jesus. According to him, forgetting the past becomes imperative for all Christians because the devil often holds on to our past to accuse us before God and try to lead us away from His loving-kindness. The depth and incisiveness of this message coupled with the spectacular yet soul-lifting songs of the choir made the Sunday service of September 13, 2015 one to cherish for a long time.




Little Suzanna Fasipe was diagnosed with kidney disease and became a serious burden on the family. Her parents were adversely affected psychologically by her ill health. The little girl became swollen and could hardly sleep at night as pains all over her body made every night a grave experience. All efforts by her parents to find solution from hospital to hospital proved futile even as it got to a point that Mr Fasipe could no longer provide a dime and opted to sell off his car to take care of his daughter.


                  MISS SUZY & FAMILY

Mr Victor Ebele, a family friend to the Fasipes discouraged Suzanna’s father from the idea of selling his car and instead sold to him the idea of coming down to The SCOAN. All the way from Osogbo in Osun state, Nigeria, Mr Ebele led the Fasipes to The SCOAN. When they arrived, it was apparent that Mr Fasipe was desperate to see the man of God but was advised not to depend on the idea of seeing the man of God but to exercise his faith by getting the Morning Water. Mr Ebele eventually got the Morning Water and gave it to the Fasipes instructing them to minister it on Suzanna.

MISS SUZY HEALED OF                                  KIDNEY DISEASE


After ministering the morning water on her and in her food, little Suzanna’s condition began to improve dramatically. The swelling and pains disappeared. Her sickly appetite became normal as new energy and zest of childhood returned to her. A visit to the same hospital that earlier diagnosed her with the ailment showed that she was negative and no longer had the kidney disease. Repeated tests over a couple of weeks maintained that she was negative and totally cured of the disease. Testifying in company of his wife, daughter and friend, Mr Fasipe expressed undiluted joy for the miraculous restoration of his daughter’s health. He advised people all over the world to trust in God and believe His prophets.



Right from birth, Mrs Ernestina Baiden from Cameroon had suffered from a condition known as Glucose-6 phosphates dehydrogenate deficiency.  She experienced allergies such as severe headaches and received heavy doses of analgesics. Sometimes, the doctors gave her infusions in order to flush her system but all remained a futile exercise. The Customer Service Personnel had a horrible time carrying out her official obligations as she often went on sick leave to the detriment of her job. Knowing that her condition has no known medical solution, she decided to look for solution in God. She came to The SCOAN, received the Morning Water and returned to her country.



Watching Emmanuel TV back home, her faith was boosted by the testimony of a woman whose genotype transformed from SS to AA after ministering the Morning Water. Believing that her case would not be an exception, she ministered the Morning Water calling on God to heal her permanently of her medical condition. And to God be the glory, since the day she ministered the Morning Water, her condition has become a thing of the past. She is healed and no longer visits the hospital. Two different laboratory test results also confirmed her to be free of the medical condition that had threatened her very joy. She advised people all over the world to believe that there is power in the name of Jesus Christ through the medium of the morning water.


Poor crop yield as a result of inadequate rainfall was a major challenge to Mr Emmanuel Chama, a Zambian civil servant who also embraced farming in order to supplement his earnings. With a large family, including five children, all of whom were already in school, he no doubt needed every additional income he could get. Faced with the precarious no rain situation and the low yield, he was in dire need of divine intervention.



Fortunately, a member of his prayer group visited Nigeria and brought the Morning Water to him. Filled with mountain-moving faith, he knelt down on his farm in company of his family and ministered the Morning Water asking for a bumper harvest as he planted his crops. When harvest time came, it was miraculous. Mr Chama harvested a total of 4 metric tonnes of maize equalling 10 times of his previous harvests. He observed that proceeds from the sale of the products helped him to take care of the school fees of his children. Mr Chama thanked God for the turn-around and for obeying the prophetic instruction of Prophet T.B. Joshua.




His uncle based in Canada had asked him to apply for a study visa to enable him to pursue his university education in the North American country. As bright and elating as the prospect of studying abroad was, Mr Daniel Umunnakwe’s hope was maligned by lack of funds bearing in mind the expenses involved in visa processing in Nigeria. Refusing to give up on the golden opportunity, Mr Umnunnakwe made up his mind to come down to The SCOAN to seek the face of God before proceeding with the visa application.



Apart from receiving the Morning Water for personal use, an evangelist had earlier ministered it on him. By the time he got home, he ministered the Morning Water on the necessary documents as he prepared to go to the Canadian embassy for the submission of his application. After praying and asking God to come to his aid, he went to the embassy the next day and submitted the application. After a short while, he received a call from the embassy requesting him to come for medicals. At that juncture, it dawned on him that God was already working out something for his good.

As he prepared to go for the medicals, he ministered the Morning Water on himself and once again committed the process into God’s hands. After undergoing the medicals, he left for his house. Two weeks later, he received a letter informing him that his application for a visa to study in Canada had been approved. Thanking God in company of his father and brother before The SCOAN congregation, Mr Umunnakwe said the whole process was a miracle because he had initially thought it was not going to be possible. He advised youths to worship God always and wait for His time.


Mrs Edoka Solomon was trying to separate a fight involving her husband and a neighbour when her hand was battered with a wood meant for her husband. The wound that developed became a major sore in her entire life. The pain and discomfort were unbearable as she moved from hospital to hospital without solution. As the wound was rotting away, rats would make a feast with it.  Within the four years of her travails, she spent one whole year in the General Hospital where doctors suggested amputation as the only solution. By this time, both her parents and husband abandoned her saying they were fed up with her condition.


A concerned friend brought her down to The SCOAN where she received the Morning Water. Mrs Solomon continued to minister the Morning Water on the affected arm until the pain and discomfort stopped completely. After a while, the wound also healed completely. Testifying at The SCOAN, Mrs Solomon thanked God for healing her through the Morning Water medium.




Mrs Grace Oyebola suffered from lumbar spondylosis for four years. During that time, she was incapacitated and could not carry out her daily activities without a lumbar corset given to her in the hospital. She was taken to many hospitals with none offering a permanent cure for her condition. Having spent a fortune with no favourable result in sight, she decided to come to God at The SCOAN.




Placed on the Prayer Line, Mrs Oyebola received prayers from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua who laid hands on her commanding all the pains and discomfort to vanish from her. Since that day, she has not felt any pains in her body. Testifying and demonstrating her fitness before a jubilant congregation, Mrs Oyebola advised people to draw closer to God as there is nothing impossible with Him.


She was not happy with her life as everything looked bleak and gloomy.  Even with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, life was a stream of hardship punctuated by cataracts of momentary joy. There was no progress in sight and finances were abysmally in very short supply. Poverty and lack were obviously staring her in the face. Coming to The SCOAN in search of divine intervention, she received the Morning Water and returned to her native Botswana. Ministering the Morning Water and looking up to God for grace, she soon embarked on a journey to South Africa to pursue her Master’s degree in chemistry.



Having arrived in South Africa full of hope for a great and bright future, she was attacked by a group of boys who snatched her bag and beat her blue-black. When the boys ran off with her bag, containing her passport, money and other valuable documents, she ministered the Morning Water on herself and prayed, “Lord, Jesus help me!”  As they were running off, they dropped her bag. Even though the boys were eventually arrested, Dr Mudabuka refused to lay charges against them in the spirit of forgiveness.

Dr. Mudabuka’s outstanding focus, personal discipline and untiring energy took her to a new level in her career. Her academic passions and performance were soon noticed and instead of completing her Master’s programmme, she was upgraded to pursue her PhD at Rhodes University. Ministering the Morning Water in the name of Jesus Christ before, during and after her final exams, her results were so good that the university authorities decided to patent her research papers in other to protect them from copy right violators and plagiarists.

She graduated in 2014 and is now a PhD holder in chemistry. She proudly showed her certificate that stated she is a Doctor of Philosophy in Chemistry from Rhodes University, South Africa. Within four months, she got a job with double her previous salary. It is a research job in natural resources and materials. She now has the privilege to work anywhere in the world. All the People who knew her in the past now marvel and say that indeed God loves her. Testifying to God’s goodness in her life in company of her husband, she described the Morning Water as the blood of Jesus.


Mr Donatus Iwu, Nigerian based in Gabon was going about his normal duties as a professional driver until he began to experience body weakness coupled with severe itching. Uncomfortable with his experiences, he dashed down to Nigeria and visited several hospitals including the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital. All medical attempts at establishing the cause of his condition proved abortive not to talk of getting a cure. Eventually, the problem developed into a leg ulcer that continued to eat deep into his flesh. He could not use any form of foot wear and his wife and children aided him wherever he went.





As he continued to contemplate what to do in the midst of all the pain and discomfort, a friend introduced him to Emmanuel TV through which he witnessed many great miracles and became inspired to come down to The SCOAN. At the Prayer Line, he was spotted by the man of God who laid hands on him. According to Mr Iwu, as soon as the man of God laid hands on him, he felt as if something held his leg and shook it. After the man of God prayed for him, he received the Morning Water which he continued to minister on his leg. To the glory of God, Mr Iwu is now his boisterous self as the leg ulcer has been completely healed. Thanking God in unison with his wife and promising to live the rest of his life in service to the Almighty, Mr Iwu physically demonstrated his fitness by jogging in the auditorium to prove that indeed God has touched him.


Mr Emmanuel a Liberian national started working as a drug courier as far back as 1996. He was introduced to a baron by his uncle who knew he was very bright and smart and could handle the assignment for the baron. Initially, he started by distributing 10 grammes of cocaine daily which eventually increased to 100 grammes. He also became a heroin addict as he would not do without taking the lethal powder in its purest form on a daily basis. Any time he failed to take the drug, he became very ill and would be rushed to hospital. Mr Emmanuel reckoned that his mother’s relocation to the United States due to the Liberian war of the 90s took a negative toll on his upbringing as he was very vulnerable to bad social influences.



In the thick of his psycho-social crisis occasioned by his addiction to heroin, his life became seriously troubled as he had really hard moments and needed an escape route. A friend he came across during his troubles introduced him to Emmanuel TV and urged him to watch the station to enable him to get some freedom from his troubles. The moment he prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua via Emmanuel TV, his life began the journey of redemption. As the man of God commanded everything that was not of God to leave the body of anyone praying along with him, Mr Emmanuel found himself freezing, unable to move as something came out of his body. Since that day, his life has not remained the same. Today, he feels 10 times younger. After his transformation, Mr Emmanuel made a public confession and became a social crusader against drug trafficking. He has collaborated with the Senate and Representative of the House in his country to enact stringent laws making drug trafficking a first degree felony in Liberia. He is now moving from village to village counselling people and preaching against drugs. His life has continued to influence other drug addicts who are moved to tears seeing one of their former allies now a changed and transformed person working against a trade and habit he once championed. Advising the youths to steer clear of drugs, Mr Emmanuel observed that many might not be lucky to survive the addiction even as he confessed that some of his former customers are no longer living due to illicit drug use.



Mr Chris Etta Peter was experiencing difficulties and could not make ends meet even as a graduate and so was desperate to make it big in life. He approached a friend and told him about his challenges pointing out his urgent need for some money to start business. The friend asked him to come back in a week’s time so he could take him to a place where he would be helped to stand as a man. When time came, he approached his friend again and they set out on a journey to the place where he would receive help.



On reaching their destination, a far away village, he was introduced to a spiritualist who in turn informed him that he would take him to the spirit that controls everything so that he could have all the best desires of life at his beck and call. The spiritualist also informed him that their journey to the spirit’s abode would have to begin by midnight. By this time, Mr Chris had given money to the man to buy ritual items including pieces of white cloth. Their journey to the abode of the spirit took about three hours.

When they arrived at the abode of the spirit, it was a river. The man controlling the spirit chanted a series of incantations to invoke the spirit. Apparently on another far away mission, the spirit answered that it was away but would soon be back. As the ritual continued at the river side, the spirit, heralded by a tiny shining light soon arrived from a distance. It was a very beautiful lady who beckoned on him to come. Mr Chris, stricken by fear was urged by the spiritualist to go and meet her.

By the time he went to meet the spirit in the middle of the river, she welcomed him as her son and she told him to turn while she washed him from head to toe with water from the river declaring that he would get whatever he wanted. After that ritual she told him to return at a later date for a covenant. That night as he slept, the spirit appeared to him in his dream and drove him around in a car promising to make his life better. As soon as he returned to his home, things improved dramatically. He started doing business and money began to flow.

By the time he returned to enter into the covenant they had discussed, the lady appeared on the left side of the river instead of the usual right side. She gave him an egg to eat and a drink from the river. She also warned him not to disclose the covenant to anyone and was also told not to get married. Before he finally left her presence, she instructed him to dip himself into the river seven times. After the consummation of the covenant, he received three pictures from the spiritualist and was instructed to place one in his house, one in his car and the other should be with him whenever he wanted to travel to.

The bubble burst when he made up his mind to get married. The spirit appeared and reminded him of the covenant they had entered into. She would appear to him in the dream and they would fight. After his wedding, all the money disappeared and the hard times returned. He could not even find the funds to join his family in the United States. It was at that juncture that he found himself at The SCOAN where he was delivered. Expressing his gratitude to God for his deliverance, he advised people to appreciate the gift God gave to the world through Nigeria, in the person of Prophet T.B. Joshua and his ministry, The Synagogue, Church of All Nations.

Evangelist Josephine reminded the congregation of the need to hold firmly to their faith in God in spite of the challenges EVANGELIST JOSEPHINE life throws at them. She reckoned that God allows His children to face difficulties to neither break nor disgrace them but to prepare them for the greater glory ahead: “At every moment, in every season, we should adore God and fall down to worship Him. When you are struggling with doubt, take time to remember the way and manner God has worked in your life. If you do, you would see that God has allowed you to pass through difficulties and hard times to maintain your union with Him. That union is so strong. Nothing you could possibly do could stop God from loving you. There is no situation that could sever, cut or break that connection. Always remember – He is supporting your position, backing you up, praying that your faith shall not fail as long as you keep strong in His Word”.

With her counsels backed up with scriptural exemplifications, the atmosphere radiated illimitable joy as the Emmanuel Singers took praise and worship to the next level. The plethora of testimonies that followed showed that Sunday, September 6, 2015 would be forever imprinted in the minds of all who witnessed it.



Mrs Gladys Sandow from Ghana carried over the problem of bedwetting from a young age into her marital life. It was so MRS GLADYS SANDOW & HUSBANDembarrassing for a mother of twins to wet the bed and have to place her children at the spot to cover up. While all this continued, Mr Sandow was not in the know. The bubble however burst one day when her husband saw urine on their bed. At that time, the kids were already grown and slept in another room. Mr Sandow did not take it lightly with his wife. He was angered by her attitude to the problem. He felt she should have opened up to him.

Mrs Sandow in a bid to find solution shared the problem with her mother who also confirmed that she had experienced the same problem when she got married. It was obvious the problem had more to it than met the ordinary eyes. A family curse became the prime suspicion. After praying fervently with her mother, she sent her brother to Nigeria to get her the Morning Water. On receiving the Morning Water from The SCOAN in January 2013, she ministered it and went to sleep.

In her dream, she found herself at The SCOAN with the man of God praying for her in the auditorium and casting out the foul spirit that had been troubling her life. In that same dream, a strange woman walked out of her body even as a coconut also dropped out of her. Since that day till date, she has never encountered the problem again. Sharing in the joy of her deliverance in company, Mr Sandow advised people all over the world to look up to God and continue to pray.


MR & MRS PATRICK TOM UDOFIAMrs Udofia’s only pregnancy was a fatal one known in medical parlance as ectopic pregnancy which resulted in a surgery that saw her lose one of her tubes. Matters got worse as she became very scared of getting pregnant because of the risks involved. With no more inkling about what to do, Mrs Udofia and her husband headed to The SCOAN.

The couple from Akwa Ibom, Nigeria, delighted to have received the Morning Water from The SCOAN, returned home and ministered it in faith backed by prayer. Within that month, Mrs Udofia was confirmed pregnant. As the pregnancy progressed, all tests including the ultra-sound scan showed that the baby was in good position and shape. Mr and Mrs Udofia expressed ecstatic gratitude for God’s grace in their lives and advised people to trust in God because with Him, all things are possible.


YAYRA BONIShe had come to The SCOAN in search of a scholarship for a Master’s programme but unknown to Miss Yayra Boni from Ghana, the man of God had seen that her help would come from her country. Having told the man of God her problem, he declared that a scholarship was waiting for her in her native land. The man of God, in his usual charitable disposition, gave her the Morning Water and the sum of five hundred US dollars. On getting to Ghana, she was introduced to a very influential person in government and was told that seeing him would involve beating the huge protocol procedure of his office.

Determined to excel, she ministered the Morning Water and made for the office of the influential man. To her surprise, she encountered no protocol challenges as she was kindly ushered in by someone she had never met. When she got to the man’s office and explained her mission, he immediately put a call across to an organisation that assists students to secure scholarships. And that was the beginning of her success story. The organisation assisted her and helped her secure a full scholarship for her Master’s programme from which she graduated in July, 2015.

Miss Boni also encountered other problems such as job instability and spiritual contamination through nightmares of sexual encounters that often resulted in abdominal pains. Since she started ministering the Morning Water, those problems vanished. She even dreamt of three ladies who rose from the sea to warn her about introducing the Morning Water to others. Apparently agents of the marine kingdom, they confessed that the Morning Water will deliver many souls from the grip of their kingdom.

Thanking God for putting a new song in her mouth, Miss Boni advised people, especially youths, to run to God. She also encouraged those who have wrong and fragmented impressions about The SCOAN to change in order to enjoy the grace of God that abounds in Christ.


Mr Job Simeon was a Superintendent in the Nigeria Police Force. For seven years, he remained on that rank and prayed for CSP. JOB SIMEONpromotion. His longing for promotion really affected him psychologically bearing in mind the fact that his rise from a Cadet to Superintendent did not take much time. Being an ardent viewer of Emmanuel TV who has been inspired by the numerous miracles God uses the man of God to perform, he made up his mind to get the Morning Water.

As soon as he got the Morning Water, he began to minister it on himself asking God to make his promotion a reality. After a while, news came to him that the police have released their promotions. He went to check and discovered that he has been promoted from Superintendent of Police to Chief Superintendent of Police. Thanking God for the promotion and describing the Morning Water as a multi-dimensional miracle worker, he advised people all over the world to make use of it in their prayers and experience the wonder-working power of God in it.


DEACON MONDAY OSSAIHonourable Monday Ossai from Delta State was hooked on wine and loved chasing women.  He would spend most of his time drinking from one bar to another and womanising. His life’s course was nothing to write home about. He had no house. The only property he had was a plot of land that was already turning into a dump site due to neglect. Worried about his fate, a friend convinced him to visit The SCOAN.

At The SCOAN, he received a prophetic message from the man of God concerning his life which was in a cage. The man of God gave him the Morning Water, encouraged him to help the needy, especially the elderly and also prayed for him. As he continued to minister the Morning Water, things began to take a new and promising turn. He built an impressive country home on his plot of land, built a bungalow for two elderly people from his community and placed them on a monthly allowance.

Since he started ministering the Morning Water, his old habits of drinking and womanising have stopped. Transformed, Mr Ossai thanked God for his liberation.


Mrs Suzanne Belibi, a Cameroonian medical doctor based in the US was caught in an ugly web of legal battles. The clinic she DR SUZANNE BELIBIhad opened with her husband was not allowed to mount its sign on a board it was supposed to share with a hotel. The hotel insisted they had to pay some fee before they were allowed to use the board and the car park. As a result, Mrs Belibi and her husband hired a lawyer just as did the hotel management. While they were battling that, an insurance company wrote to them through another lawyer demanding the sum of three hundred thousand US dollars as compensation in an accident involving their car.

Tired of spending money on legal fees, Mrs Belibi decided to run to God. She came to The SCOAN and received the Morning Water. After ministering the Morning Water on the signboard and her papers, she also decided to relieve their lawyer of their duty as she had a new Lawyer on the case – our Lord Jesus Christ.

With Jesus on her side, she approached the main person in the hotel and he told her to go ahead to use the signboard without paying a dime. Concerning the case with the insurance company, they filed an appeal which was upheld by the court, meaning that they would no longer pay the money requested by the insurance firm. Mrs Belibi also testified to the transformation of her clinic. According to her, before she started using the Morning Water, the clinic recorded a low patient turnout daily. But today, they boast of well over fifty patients daily. She advised people to have faith and believe in God.


Mr and Mrs Chijiuba Ucheanya tasted poverty in its most undiluted form. After their wedding, things became very rough. Mr MR & MRS UCHENYA CHIJIUBAUcheanya remained on the same spot as a lecturer in one of the Nigerian polytechnics without promotion for a long time. The state of things brewed domestic rancour between him and his wife. They kept struggling until his brother came to their home and told them about Emmanuel TV. Convinced that they would be blessed at The SCOAN, the couple came down and joined the Prayer Line where Mrs Ucheanya was delivered from the demon that was responsible for all the family’s woes.

After the deliverance, the man of God gave them the Morning Water and proclaimed that they would come back with the mother of testimonies. And true to the words of the man of God, Mr Ucheanya was promoted from a lecturer to Chief Lecturer as well as Head of Department of Mass Communication. He received an award from students for his outstanding leadership style. Since he began ministering the Morning Water, he has built his own house, bought two exotic cars and enjoys peace of mind with his family. His children are doing academically well in school. He advised people to run to God.


For twenty years Miss Hephzibah was troubled by the problem of bedwetting. She grew into adulthood with the burden that reduced her to a big shame among her peers. She would always dream of going to the bathroom to urinate only to wake up and find herself on the bed soaked in her own urine. The spirit in her made her very aggressive and frustrated. All her prayers aimed at putting an end to the problem yielded no results. A decision to visit The SCOAN became the precursor to her total freedom.

MISS HEPZIBAH ARHUERE & SISTERDuring a Sunday service, Hephzibah and her sister were in the congregation when the Morning Water was bring ministered. By the time the evangelists got to where Hephzibah was sitting, the young lady manifested. As the ministration of the Morning Water intensified, the demon that had been disturbing her spoke, revealing how it had tormented her and tried to destroy her gift of singing claiming that anytime she sang, their kingdom was affected. Taking authority in the name of Jesus, the evangelists commanded the demon to depart from her. Since her deliverance, Miss Hephzibah has not experienced the problem of bedwetting anymore. Filled with unprecedented joy and thanksgiving, she sang to the glory of God.


A mother’s ignorance – a daughter’s innocence – a man’s iniquity – all these combined to tell the sorry tale of the Klay family from Liberia. One day 15 year old Bridget was with her friends after school chatting as usual. It seemed like any other day. Soldiers on a peacekeeping mission in Liberia passed and one of them, from Nigeria, pointed her out, telling her he loved her. Dismissing and ignoring the soldier’s hints, Bridget went home and quickly forgot the scene. Relationship was the last thing she had on her mind! Little did she know that her sister who had been behind had excitedly related the events to her mother.  On hearing this news, Susannah, the girls’ mother was extremely interested. If a foreign soldier wanted to have her daughter, that would take a huge weight off her shoulders! He would be able to sponsor her to school and it would be one less mouth to feed at home, she mused. Poverty had delved deep into the family’s fortunes, deftly dictating the direction of Susannah’s MISS SUSANNAH KLAY & FAMILYdecisions. Susannah convinced Bridget that following the whims of this Nigerian man was the best thing for her future and her family. Reluctantly Bridget agreed and approached the man the next day. He obliged by promising to send her to school and provide for anything she needed. However, he was soon called back to Nigeria. Yet, by this time the following year, she had already given birth to her first child, her childhood innocence gone all too soon. On hearing the news, her husband sent for her to join him. Before long Bridget was packing her bags, saying goodbye to her mother and everything that was familiar to her. Her destination? Nigeria.

On reaching Nigeria, things were not quite as Bridget thought they would be. All the promises of school and study fell flat as she found herself stuck in the house, unable to move in a country not her own. Before she knew it, she was pregnant and gave birth to a second baby boy. Her ‘too good’ husband was not quite as good as he had appeared. Before long, Bridget noticed that on a regular basis, he was bringing different girls into the house, without any heed to her feelings or her presence. If she voiced any word of complaint, he would silence her with heavy beating. Getting tired, he decided to send her to his parents in the village. Bridget found herself in another world not knowing anything or anyone around. She was looked on with scorn and contempt by the relatives of her husband.

In tears of bitterness and pain Bridget called her mother to complain. On hearing her plight, Susannah could not believe her ears. After all, how could such a kind soldier behave in that way? She accused Bridget of lying and decided to travel to Nigeria herself to confirm the story. When Susannah arrived, the situation went from bad to worse. “He said he would send me to school – yes he did – guess what? This is my certificate!!” said Bridget in a voice of pained sarcasm as she greeted her mother, showing her young son to her. Susannah soon noticed that the soldier was just as wicked as Bridget had claimed. When she complained to him about his beating of Bridget, he in turn proceeded to mercilessly beat her. After a while, he got tired of them and sent mother, daughter and two kids packing with no money in their pocket and nothing but the clothes on their backs. Homeless, hungry and alone, the Klay family began to move in the streets of Nigeria, looking only for their next meal.

Both mother and daughter had seen Emmanuel TV and witnessed how T.B. Joshua had helped so many people. Determined, the family made a long harsh journey to Lagos and arrived at The SCOAN in desperate need of assistance. All they desired was to return back home. On hearing the plight of the family, T.B. Joshua with the support of the Emmanuel TV Partners presented the family with a generous gift of N400,000 – provision not just for tickets back to Liberia but for their welfare once at home.

In tears, Bridget advised other young people not to rush into marriage and fall for empty promises but to pursue their dreams of education and career first. Thanking God for His intervention through Prophet T.B. Joshua, mother and daughter, amidst tears, urged people to think carefully before they act. Bridget advised young people to learn from her experience.


After eleven years of marriage, Mr and Mrs Obueke could not produce a child. While Mr Obueke was diagnosed with staphylococcus and low sperm count his wife was certified barren as a result of the same staphylococcus. All the frustration that followed their childlessness met their end when they visited The SCOAN and received the Morning Water and Good Morning Sticker from the man of God. A few months after ministering the Morning Water amid fervent prayers, Mrs Obueke became pregnant.MR & MRS OBUEKE BENJAMIN

When it was time for delivery, Mrs Obueke laboured for three days with the hospital attendants giving up. But as soon as Mr Obueke ministered the Morning Water and Good Morning Sticker on his wife, the baby boy came out immediately. A dead child on a bed close to his wife’s which the hospital attendants were attempting to revive, suddenly sneezed back to life after the Morning Sticker was placed on its chest. Husband and wife expressed their profound gratitude to God for the wonderful miracle.

On Sunday 23 August, 2015, the congregation at The SCOAN extolled the name of God as the Emmanuel Singers raised praises to God centred on the Word. No doubt, the grace of God is upon His people and His banner over them is love. Evangelist Rikhard took the church on an excursion into the Scriptures with his message titled, THE SECRET OF OUR STRENGTH. He encouraged Christians to hold on to God and their faith even in the face of a world full of troubles and discouraging situations, noting that the secret of our strength as Christians lies in our unshakeable faith in God and His Word. “When the three Hebrew men, in Daniel 3, faced the fiery furnace, they never changed their confession. When Joseph found himself in life-threatening circumstances, he never abandoned his dream. When David slipped into moral failure, he never stayed there. When Job lost it all, he never lost his faith. When Jesus Christ, the Son of God, hung on the Cross and people said it was the end, Jesus boldly declared that the end has not yet come; the best is yet to come”. In other words, the secret of the Christian’s strength is his or her unshaken faith in God in the face of harsh and unpleasant circumstances.



INSPECTOR SAARA NDINELAGU SAKARIASergeant Saara Sakaria’s introduction to Emmanuel TV by a friend became the precursor to the glorious turn her life eventually took. Upon installing the cable in her home, she spent most of her time watching the power of God on display via the channel. By July 2013, her faith had developed to the extent that she made her way to Nigeria to come and worship at The SCOAN. Before travelling back home, the sergeant had the opportunity to receive the Morning Water and the Morning Sticker. Upon return to her native Namibia, Sergeant Sakaria called on God through the mighty name of Jesus to come and turn things around in her life and career as she was yet to be promoted in the last eight years. She made this supplication while ministering the Morning Water, in Jesus’ name. She specifically asked God to break every chain holding her destiny in bondage and appealed to Him to take her where He pleases.

One afternoon, while watching Emmanuel TV, a friend called to congratulate her on her promotion from the rank of Sergeant to Inspector. By the time she confirmed her promotion, it was discovered that she was actually given double promotion. Today, Inspector Sakaria is a commissioned police officer and the overall commander in her station. Displaying her promotion letter before the congregants at The SCOAN, Inspector Sakaria also revealed that she had received a brand new car to enhance her duties in her new capacity. She advised people all over the world to have faith in God and stay connected to experience God’s goodness in their lives.


The atmosphere was tense, swelling in suspense as an evangelist ministered the Morning Water on a woman possessed ofMISS KHATUNA KAKHELI an evil spirit trying to resist being cast out. The more the evangelist ministered the Morning Water, the more the demon protested, challenging the evangelist with boasts that he owns his victim’s life, “I am an ancient dragon spirit; I am very old. She is mine. I have many powers”. At one point, Prophet T.B. Joshua communicated to the evangelist a superior spiritual strategy which eventually brought the demon to its knees, in Jesus’ name. After her deliverance, Miss Khatuna Kakheli, a Georgian national based in Spain shared the intriguing but sad story of her life under the influence of a stubborn dragon spirit that almost ruined her entire existence. The problem had started from her childhood when she was barely six years old. She had a dream of the dragon spirit strangling her repeatedly for several nights. Because of that experience, she was scared of sleeping in dark places and only enjoyed her sleep whenever the room was lit. The problem persisted into adulthood and saw her go from one church to the other in search of solution, all to no avail. The dragon spirit spread its evil tentacles around the family, destroying anyone who attempted to help her. An uncle who tried to help her mysteriously died in a motor accident and her own father became a victim to cancer. Her mother was not spared from the vicious onslaught of the demon as her ailing leg was confirmed for amputation. On Khatuna’s own part, the spirit ensured that she never made good use of her adult life as she was also diagnosed with cancer and suffered bleeding for six months. As a young woman of marriageable age, most of the suitors that came her way were drug addicts, mafia members and other men of questionable character.

She became a vagabond, leaving her native country and heading to Spain on foot under the rebellious influence of the dragon spirit in company of a friend – birds of the same feather. They traversed seven different countries on foot before reaching Spain. No iota of fear ever popped up in her mind as she was destined for total annihilation by the dragon spirit. Back home in Georgia, the cycle of doom was far from abating as her family lost everything, resulting in the homelessness of her parents.

In the midst of all the troubles facing her life, she made up her mind to find a lasting solution to a problem that has torn her life and those of other family members apart for too long. It was that sincere quest for redemption and salvation that brought her to The SCOAN where the Almighty once again proved that He is omnipotent. Her deliverance was herculean but was worth all the hassle that came with it. Even her father who suffered from cancer revealed his gradual healing since she was delivered.

Miss Khatuna Kakheli was beaming with smiles as she testified before a congregation that shared in her joy. Thanking God for her deliverance, she urged the congregants and people all over the world to continue to seek for their deliverance, confident that Jesus is their Deliverer.

Mr and Mrs Uche Nwoke were not a happy couple at all. Shedding of tears became a recurring activity in their marriage. MR & MRS UCHENNA NWOKEAfter several years of living as husband and wife, the cry of a child was not heard in their midst. Repeated visits to the doctors showed that Mrs Uche had multiple fibroids and required surgeries to be able to practicalise her dream of bearing a child. But rather than dance to the tune of the doctors, the couple agreed and opted to visit The SCOAN.

When they arrived, they were privileged to meet with the man of God who laid hands on Mrs Uche, prayed for her and gave her the Morning Water. By the time the couple got home, they ministered the Morning Water in prayer and continued their normal lives as husband and wife. To their joy, Mrs Uche became pregnant and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. In addition to their bundle of joy, God also worked through the prayer of the man of God to secure Mr Uche’s land and provide him with the resources to construct a two-storey building on the same land. Today, the family lives together in their own house with their baby. Both husband and wife expressed their heart-felt appreciation to God for using The SCOAN and Prophet T.B. Joshua to wipe away their tears. They encouraged people to use the Morning Water and experience the power of God in it.


MR ONYA ADOL & FAMILYMr Onya Adol had accompanied his children to church for thanksgiving and was returning home when six men wielding AK-47 assault rifles accosted him by the gate of his house and whisked him away in their vehicle. Mrs Adol was alerted about her husband’s abduction by one of the house staff and immediately swung into action, placing his picture on the screen of Emmanuel TV and praying in Jesus’ name. The next day, she reached out to The SCOAN through one of the prayer hotlines, explained her story to the prayer warrior and was relieved when she received a return call from Prophet T.B. Joshua. After listening to Mrs Adol narrate her ordeal, the man of God prophesied that her husband would be released, in Jesus’ name. At the same time, as the kidnappers drove Mr Adol to their hideout, he ministered the Morning Water and committed his life into the hands of the Almighty God. From that moment, things started happening to the abductors. One of their vehicle’s front tyres burst and affected the swiftness of their operation. While they fixed the tyre, they made arrangements to convey their captive on a motorbike to their destination. Mr Adol was tied and taken on a motorbike to the creek and dumped inside a boat. A ransom of one hundred and fifty thousand naira was placed on his head.

It was beating galore as the abductors flogged their victim. They insisted that someone had paid them to kill him and wanted him to free himself from ‘death row’. They had even dug a makeshift grave for his burial. But the more they beat him, the more resolute he became in his prayers; he ministered the Morning Water continuously and prayed with the Faith Bracelet. Mr Adol then saw Prophet T.B. Joshua appear to him, assuring him of his freedom, in Jesus’ name. All efforts to squeeze money out of his family hit the brick wall. In frustration, the captors dismembered his Faith Bracelet. But as soon as they did that, they became repentant, begging him to plead with Prophet T.B. Joshua to forgive them, claiming it was a mistake. In fact, one of them never laid a hand on him from the very beginning because he had discovered that Mr Adol had a connection with T.B. Joshua and The SCOAN.

In the ensuing confusion after they had asked for forgiveness for dismembering the Faith Bracelet, they made up their mind to release him. They called his family and directed them to where they would find their father. To God be the glory, Mr Adol was finally released and returned to his family.Thanking God at The SCOAN, Mr Adol, in the company of his wife and children, praised the name of the Lord for rescuing him from his abductors. He urged the congregation to hold on to God and admonished Nigerians to appreciate what God has done for them by sending his servant, Prophet T.B. Joshua to their nation.


MR OJUMITEMr Ojum Ite from Rivers, Nigeria, was stuck in the mud of stagnation for 31 years. As a staff in the state civil service, he was on level 4 since 1984. Most of the people employed after him became his superiors as he inexplicably languished in hopelessness and confusion. As he carried on with his discouraging life, he had come across Emmanuel TV in a friend’s house. Impressed by what he saw – the wonderful demonstration of God’s power – he vowed that he must visit The SCOAN and prayed to God not to let his own blessings pass him by.

When he got to The SCOAN, he received the Morning Water and returned home in high spirits, ministering it with faith and prayer. When time for promotion came, he prepared himself, ministered the Morning Water and headed to face the panel. Realising that one must present an approval letter before he or she is qualified for promotion, he called on God to help him through the medium of the Morning Water as he had no approval letter but needed the promotion earnestly. He prayed that the approval letter should not be the stumbling block between him and his promotion. When he was called and asked about his approval letter, a voice answered and defended him, explaining to the panel that though he had applied for the letter, it was not given to him. And so on that basis, the head of the panel declared that he be promoted from level 4 to level 8 – a management level with a handsome pay package.

Mr Ite praised God for his promotion and also advised people all over the world, especially Nigerians, to begin to appreciate the gift of God to them in the person of Prophet T.B. Joshua.


Recurrent miscarriages and the loss of her first husband made Mrs Sarah Mensah’s life a miserable lot. Doctors had discovered that her womb was too weak to carry a baby, hence the barrenness. She faced the social stigma associated with women who cannot bear children. To make matters worse, all her siblings, including the younger ones have all had their own children but her case remained a mystery. She tried everything for eight years to have a child but it all ended in futility. Fortunately for her, a friend introduced her to Emmanuel TV and inspired her visit to The SCOAN.

At The SCOAN, she received the Morning Water and returned to her native Ghana. Back home, she ministered the Morning Water together with her husband and prayed for the fruit of the womb. A few weeks later, she noticed she was pregnant. In spite of her doubts, the foetus developed and survived till the ninth month. When she was about to deliver, the devil came playing a prank; the doctor told her she would have to give birth through operation but she would have none of that expensive joke.

As her faith led her, she delivered her baby successfully without operation. Holding her baby as she testified before the elated congregation, Mrs Mensah expressed much gratitude to God and urged viewers all over the world to put their trust in God.


Miss Stephanie Norvor suffered untold hardship to the extent that it was difficult to find food to eat. She struggled with life and found herself exploited by men. Her search for grace remained unbreakable and eventually yielded fruit. She came across Emmanuel TV in a friend’s house and fell in love with the way the man of God gave to the needy; this motivated her to become an Emmanuel TV Partner. As she became a partner, the wind of blessing began to blow towards her. Her life started taking a promising turn; her bead-making business began to boom. She rented a very big apartment with all necessary facilities and used it as an office where she displayed her products and trained students in bead-making. A young woman who could not feed herself is now offering employment and training to others. It could only be God. Wives of the affluent, politicians and celebrities patronise her regularly as money keeps flying into her bank account. Her life of lack and poverty is now in the dustbin of history as prosperity has taken over. Testifying before the congregation in company of a friend, Miss Norvor thanked God for lifting her from grass to grace and urged people to partner with God through Emmanuel TV Partnership.

EVANGELIST JUSTIN“Many have changed the history of their lives because they fell into the trap of looking back. Many have not discovered the promise of God for their lives because they keep taking journeys into yesterday. Many have stumbled in their walk with the Lord because they built their future around their past and present circumstances”. With these deep and incisive words, Evangelist Justin engaged the congregants’ minds in a message titled, ‘DISCUSS YOUR FUTURE IN CHRIST JESUS’.

 Evangelist Justin observed that the totality of a Christian’s life is made meaningful only when it is viewed from the perspective of Christ who died for our sins. “What is your situation? Do you feel condemned, bound, trapped, chained down because of your past? I want to tell you that there is hope – Jesus Christ is the hope. Jesus does not look at where we are coming from but where we are going. He does not look at our present situation but our future – Jesus Christ enters our lives to put an end to our past and gives birth to our future”.

Speaking further, Evangelist Justin opined that our future as Christians depends on Jesus who was sent to die for us. He stated that our past is over when the sanctifying power of Christ falls upon us and makes us new: “When your past is over, you are sanctified by the truth of Christ. There is a cleansing virtue in Christ’s Word – the Gospel. God has, as part of His sovereign plans, brought us to faith by grace. This is known as sanctification, without which no-one can see God”.

 In his final words, Evangelist Justin urged Christians to put their past behind them and embrace their new identity in Christ while allowing Him to discuss their future: “No matter the situation you are in, remember, Jesus Christ discusses your future; therefore, change your thoughts and words and begin to discuss your future in Him… Never think or talk on the level of your old life – change your thoughts and words because you are new creation in Christ Jesus. Let your heart be engaged with God’s Word because if your heart is not engaged with God’s Word, it will be engaged with thoughts from your past”.



MR YURIR SHUIGAMr Yuriy Shulga’s wife was tending their son at home in Ukraine when suddenly a strange pain crept through her back as she tried to pick up their baby. It was devastating as she could not move on her own spending almost two days on the same spot. Mr Shulga’s efforts to get the doctors yielded no positive result. Distraught and bent on putting the devil to shame, he went searching for Emmanuel TV on YouTube and together with his wife prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. As they prayed along with the man of God, the power of God manifested in their home as his wife, who could hardly move, suddenly began to move all parts of her body without stress. The strange pain succumbed to the power of the anointing via Emmanuel TV.

Thanking God for healing his wife through Emmanuel TV, Mr Shulga urged people all over the world to keep faith in God and understand that distance is never a barrier to healing and breakthrough.


When he was merely eight months old, Mr Job Mark from Tanzania suffered ankle arthrosis after an injection that gravely affected nerves in his ankle area. He grew up with the condition and received ankle support from doctors. One fateful day, while playing football, he had injured his leg on the same spot where the ankle arthrosis had developed thereby complicating an already deteriorating health condition. He became socially isolated as he considered himself a physically-challenged person. The hope of living as a completely fit man gradually eluded himMR JOB MARKBut one day, he told himself some courageous truth and declared that with God all things are possible. He came down to The SCOAN and received prayer from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. In his own words, “After the prayer by the man of God, I felt completely okay and normal to live a full life again. All the pain in my leg has disappeared. Indeed, God is truly at The SCOAN”.MR JOB MARK 2Testifying before the congregation and demonstrating his physical fitness amid tears of joy, he advised people to come to Jesus as He is present in The SCOAN.


Mrs Unnicia Shor, a South African residing in Israel, came to The SCOAN for spiritual rejuvenation and by the grace of God, was delivered from the lion spirit that had ravaged her family right from her father’s house. While the Morning Water was being ministered during a Sunday service, the lion spirit manifested through Mrs Shor.NICIA SHORRoaring menacingly as the big cats do when confronted with danger, the lion spirit made a couple of shocking revelations through its victim: “I destroyed her husband and ceased her menstruation. I gave her alcohol to drink and she thought of killing herself. I made her tired of life. I entered her through a dream”. The lion spirit said: “I wanted to kill her but your master would not let me do so”. After exhibiting the usual stubbornness associated with demons, the lion spirit eventually fell to the power of God. It was cast out of the woman and she was totally freed from its wicked onslaught.

Narrating the story of her family after the deliverance, Mrs Shor recalled how her father had worshipped the lion spirit after he was attacked by a lion many years ago. She revealed that every member of her family was born with a scar on their left leg, exactly the same spot where the lion had scarred her father. According to her, her father exhibited violent attitudes which all of his children also had in them. She remembered her encounter with the lion spirit in the dream and how that encounter suddenly changed her life in the physical and made her want to shed blood at every given opportunity. She also confessed of the attacks she had carried out against her perceived enemies. It got to the extent that she preferred going to stay in the forest with wild animals to feel at home as a result of the evil spirit in her.

Thanking God for her deliverance, she celebrated her new-found peace in God and urged especially parents to train their children in the ways of the Lord.



A.S.P. FATMA AYUBAStuck in the centre of stagnation, ASP Fatima Ayuba wallowed in dejection and self-pity for 18 years without promotion. The officer with the Nigeria Police Force got tired of her position as an unconfirmed Assistant Superintendent of Police and searched for divine intervention. Her quest for God brought her to The SCOAN where she received the Morning Water.

She ministered the Morning Water with all the seriousness she could muster calling on our Lord Jesus to come to her rescue. After ministering the Morning Water, she sat for her promotion exams and came out with flying colours.

Today, she has been confirmed as a two-star ASP. For many years, she had refused to wear the old uniform bearing one star. She was happy to display her two-star uniform which she was wearing for the first time to give thanks to God for the mighty turnaround in her life. Testifying with so much joy, she urged people to come to The SCOAN to receive their own share of God’s blessings which abound.



The scan result had shown that the placenta would come out before the baby even as the doctor said that she could only deliver her baby through caesarean section. When this information hit her like a bolt out of the blue, Rachel ran down to The SCOAN after agreeing with her husband and mother. On getting inside the church auditorium, she felt a sensation and on her way to the bathroom, she noticed blood on her body. She became weak and had to be attended to by the ushers.MRS RACHEAL & MOTHER

When her case got to the hearing of the man of God, he immediately sent an evangelist to minister the Morning Water on her. Ministering the Morning Water, the evangelist commanded her to deliver her baby safely, in Jesus’ name. Almost immediately, Rachel delivered a baby boy without any stress. Contrary to the result of the scan and the doctor’s verdict, her baby came out first followed shortly by the placenta. Testifying before a moved congregation, Rachel urged people to get the Morning Water and hold on to God.



Mrs Mweene Kambombi from Zambia hearkened to the directive of the man of God on extending love to the families and victims of the September 12, 2014 incident at The SCOAN and God in turn blessed her beyond her expectations. As a second year student in a private university, she also worked as a civil servant but wanted her education to be sponsored through scholarship because she did not have enough financial muscle to see herself through school. An attempt to get the government sponsor her education failed on the grounds that government scholarships exclude students from private universities.KAMBOMBI MWLEME

She got involved in the extension of love, care and assistance to the families of the Martyrs of Faith and even travelled down to South Africa all the way from Zambia for that cause. She believed in her heart that whatever she did for them, God would do for her even more abundantly. And true to her belief and prayer, God used the World Bank to bless her life. The World Bank offered her a four-year scholarship with more than double the funds she had envisaged. Their stolen car was also recovered after they made monetary contribution to the families of the Martyrs of Faith. Expressing her heartfelt gratitude to God for His flawlessness in rewarding His children, she advised people all over the world to love God and involve Him in all their projects.
