The SCOAN Sunday service of July 17, 2016 provided a spiritual platform in furtherance of God’s communion with His people. The choir gave their all to prepare the minds of congregants with songs that ministered to their every situation in anticipation of receiving answers from Heaven. The awesome testimonies that followed demonstrated God’s permeating presence at the Arena of Liberty.

PROPHET TB JOSHUA

In his message titled, DON’T IGNORE YOUR CONSCIENCE, Prophet T.B. Joshua called on Christians all over the world to listen to their conscience as it is the connecting tool between them and God through the Holy Spirit. “We oftentimes ignore our conscience, our heart. The same conscience the Holy Spirit uses to guide us, to guide our souls. If your heart is not there for the Holy Spirit, there is nothing the Holy Spirit can do. He cannot reach you, contact you. That is the instrument the Holy Spirit uses to guide us. Don’t ignore your conscience,” he cautioned.

Underscoring the fundamentality of the human conscience, the man of God declared that examining our conscience is as potent an exercise as prayer itself, adding that sometimes, we don’t even need to pray when we have examined our conscience before we sleep. He however admonished that for our prayers to be effective as Christians, we must ensure that nothing stands between us and God. In other words, offences or grudges must not be given the slightest opportunity to thrive in our hearts: “In order for us to have effective prayer, there must not be anything between us and God. That is holding offences such as anger, bitterness, pain of the past and so forth. These are the things that live in your heart.”

Concluding based on a biblical allusion, Prophet T.B. Joshua once more reminded Christians about the relevance of their conscience to having an unhindered access to their Creator. He said, “Don’t ignore your conscience. It is the vey instrument used by the Holy Spirit to guide you and to hear you. The Bible says “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God (Matthew 5:8).”

TESTIMONIES

VIOLENT LION SPIRIT CRUSHED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT

Miss Elizabeth Bauta was a thorn in the flesh of her mother. Her wayward behaviours were pills too bitter for her mother to swallow. She had no respect for anyone, especially her mother. Her involvement with drugs greatly affected her lifestyle. She would abuse illegal hard drugs and sedatives. After taking such, she would lose every sense of decency and decorum. She would command people about and even fight them.

MISS ELIZABETH BAUTAAccording to her, those problems started when she was living with a grandfather who had an ailment and required a lion’s leg as a traditional remedy. It was that same lion’s leg that later became her greatest problem. One day, while her grandfather was not at home, she used the lion’s leg to play some pranks on herself. Since that day, she started having nightmares in which she would see herself as a lion in the animal kingdom, lording it over other animals. She had even had a physical encounter with an apparition that appeared to her while she was on the bed with her mother.

On several occasions, she would steal money from her mother and use it to satiate her appetite for drugs. Sometimes, she would steal the poor woman’s expensive gold and sell them at giveaway prices just to have some drugs. Her desire to make trouble was almost incurable. She would look people in their eyes and order them about, not bothering about the consequences of her actions. Her mother was always at the receiving end of all her misdemeanours. There was a day she even tried to sell off her mother’s land worth seventy-five million naira for a paltry one million naira. But for the resistance of the security guards at home, she would have taken possession of the land documents.

One thing that got her mother curious about her daughter’s life was that anytime they were watching Emmanuel TV and the young woman touched the screen, she would fall down repeatedly. Knowing that something was spiritually amiss with her daughter, the mother decided to bring her to The SCOAN. But even when they arrived at The SCOAN, the evil spirit tormenting Elizabeth still tried to play a few tricks. In a bid to escape from the surveillance of the Holy Spirit, the evil spirit had lied to her mother through her that she was going to get some item outside the church and had actually led her out of the church service in search of codeine, all in an effort to thwart her deliverance. After searching around the vicinity and failing to get codeine anywhere, she returned to the church.

Her return to the church thereafter became her victory over the enemy. As the man of God delivered his sermon, the evil spirit in Elizabeth became uneasy even as it saw fire all over the place. It was when the man of God commenced the Mass Prayer that the real drama started. The evil spirit began to manifest through her as soon as prayers reverberated around the auditorium. It took eight hefty ushers to pull her out from the congregation towards the location of the man of God, in whose presence she fell flat on the ground after the lion spirit confessed all it had done to her life. Taking authority through the mighty name of Jesus Christ, Prophet T.B. Joshua sent the foul spirit out of her life and set her free from years of torment.

Testifying to her freedom from the plague of an evil spirit in company of her mother, Elizabeth who openly regretted her past life, hugged her mother in an emotion-laden display of remorse. According to her mother, the daughter’s past is over. Advising people all over the world, especially youths, Elizabeth said, “Run to Jesus and open up to your parents.”

“GOD DELIEVERED ME FROM PROSTITUTION AND BLESSED ME FINANCIALLY.”

Before her deliverance two Sundays ago, Miss Elizabeth Akunyemi had been an international prostitute. In the course of her immoral alliance with the world, she had had two children from two different fathers. She was deported from Dubai after the home security discovered her involvement in the illicit business. Her subsequent journey to Malaysia notwithstanding, she ended up broke and dejected in a sleepy corner of Lagos, Nigeria from where her friend, Kelly who was also delivered alongside with her brought her down to The SCOAN. She had lost both ‘husbands’. The first one, a Briton stopped communicating with her while the second had died of natural causes.

Having been delivered, the man of God reckoned that Elizabeth needed both moral and financial support in order to be able to fit into the society. To that effect, he encouraged church members to show some love by contributing their tokens towards the upkeep of Miss Akunyemi and her innocent children who deserve a great future. In their usual display of a charitable disposition towards the needy, members of The SCOAN contributed the sum of five hundred thousand naira which was presented to the mother of two last Sunday. She also received a copy of The Mirror, an edifying book written by Prophet T.B. Joshua.

Thanking God for her deliverance and for the show of love by the church, Miss Akunyemi was moved to tears together with her mother as she regretted the way and manner she subjected her body to worldly desires. She promised to put the financial assistance into very good use, adding that she would soon return to The SCOAN with a bigger testimony. As long as she is now concerned, all those profane desires are gone for good. Jesus Christ has taken over her life.

 

HIV/AIDS WIPED AWAY BY THE HOLY SPIRIT

MRS BETTY EZEKWUSIRIMrs Ezekwesiri had been diagnosed with HIV type I and 2 by a famous Nigerian university teaching hospital and had battled with AIDS for nine years. As she battled with the symptoms of the naturally incurable disease, her husband encouraged her to watch Emmanuel TV. The more she watched the channel, the more her faith grew immensely, giving her the encouragement to visit The SCOAN.

Visiting The SCOAN, the then pregnant woman joined the Prayer Line where the power of God was being poured out on the sick, the spiritually oppressed and on those who needed one form of deliverance or the other. As Prophet T.B. Joshua laid hands on the multitude of people at the Prayer Line, Mrs Ezekwesiri had wondered in her mind why the man of God had just passed her by without laying a hand on her. But as she harboured that thought, she remembered the testimony of a brother who was healed of diabetes after the man of God had prayed for him from afar without laying a hand on him. And as she tried to convince herself that God could still use the Prophet to heal her without necessarily touching her, she was hit by a paralysing electric shock which knocked her to the ground immediately after Prophet T.B. Joshua walked past her. That experience was followed by a sudden calmness.

After the Prayer Line, Mrs Ezekwesiri ensured that she obeyed all the instructions given to her by the man of God. She attended all the counselling sessions and sustained her faith in God with the encouragement of her husband. Gradually, all the symptoms that had characterised her HIV/AIDS infection disappeared. She has been completely healed of the deadly disease. She has also since been delivered of a baby boy who is also declared negative to the virus. Even the doctors that confirmed her new HIV negative status remain overwhelmed by the workings of God’s power.  Thanking God in company of her husband and children – Emmanuel and Joshua, Mrs Ezekwesiri advised people to draw close to God and believe that He will heal them all.

MIRACULOUS KIDNEY TRANSPLANT

Having been diagnosed with a severe kidney disease, Mr Adeyanju Eniola ran from pillar to post in search of a solution that was never forthcoming. Not even the very expensive dialysis recommended by specialist doctors could proffer a permanent solution. The implication of his condition was that he would continue to spend his money on dialysis until further notice. One of his doctors later suggested he should go for a kidney transplant in India. To undergo a transplant in India, he needed seven million naira. Thinking it was his last hope, he reached out to family members for financial assistance in order to fund his trip and medical mission to India. When he discovered that help was not really forthcoming as expected, he was advised to approach his state government for help. His request for assistance from the Ekiti State Government was not fruitful as it came at a time when the nation and states were battling serious economic crises occasioned by dwindling revenue amid the free fall of the naira in the international market.

MR ADEYANJU ENIOLAHowever, his sister whom he had approached for financial help sent him a special package – the Morning Water, Good Morning Stickers, testimonies of people healed of kidney disease and The Mirror – a Christian classic written by Prophet T.B. Joshua. As soon as the package got to him, he pushed it aside, lamenting that what he needed was money and not ‘ordinary water and a book.’ Alas, he almost missed an opportunity to save his life but God, in His infinite mercy used that ‘ordinary water’ as his saving grace. Having failed to raise the money required for the transplant, his wife persuaded him to try the package of ‘ordinary water and a book’ sent by his sister.

As soon as he started using the Morning Water, all the debilitating symptoms of kidney disease that held him down for five months left him. When he returned to his doctors, they ordered for tests to be carried out to ascertain the condition of his kidney. When the results of the test were out, the doctors marvelled at what they saw. How his kidney returned to its normal condition remained a mystery. Responding to their bewilderment, Mr Eniola told them that he received healing through the medium of the Morning Water at The SCOAN. He testified last Sunday, giving God all the glory for his miraculous healing. Accompanied by his sister, he demonstrated his new-found health fitness by running around. He advised people with similar condition thus: “Trust in God: with God all things are possible.”

UNEXPECTED BLESSINGS ABOUND

Ms Pinkie Netshidzati encountered setback, career failure, disappointment and poverty. For the South African single mother of three boys, feeding her children and paying her many bills became extremely difficult. As a Station Manager in the South African Disaster Management and Emergency Services, her salary was not robust enough to cater for the huge responsibilities on her shoulders. She had applied for promotion on seven different occasions but nothing was forthcoming until she visited The SCOAN and received the Morning Water.

Upon ministering the Morning Water in line with the instructions of Prophet T.B. Joshua, she prayed fervently, asking God to change her situation for good. The answers to her prayers came almost immediately. She was thereafter promoted to the position of District Manager – a position that came with improved remuneration and conditions of service. She now delegates duties to many subordinates.

MRS PINKIE NETSHIDZATIHer Master’s programme in Disaster Management had been threatened by the mysterious disappearance of her exam result. After following up with the university for several months, she decided to hand the matter to God. Ministering the Morning Water on her phone, she put a call across to the school authorities. Surprisingly, the school authorities informed her in a matter of minutes that her missing result has been found.

Thanking God for his unlimited blessings upon her life, Ms Netshidzati told the congregants how God also blessed her with a house of her own in one of the big suburbs in South Africa after she had used the Morning Water for prayer. She also testified to her healing from a strange ailment after using the Morning Water. According to her, after ministering the Morning Water when she felt ill that very day, she vomited a strange object and afterwards regained her sound health. Expressing her gratitude and promising to serve God sincerely, she advised people in the following words – “Delay is not denial”

LAW SCHOOL FAILURE UPTURNED TO OUTSTANDING SUCCESS

Mr Ini Okodi and his colleagues had sat for the Nigerian Bar final exams last year but somehow they all failed. Faced with the grim reality of having to wait for another year to re-sit the exams, they were inspired to seek God’s face at The SCOAN after watching some of their predecessors on Emmanuel TV. Twenty-one of their colleagues at the Nigerian Law School had visited The SCOAN and had received prayers from Prophet T.B. Joshua prior to their Bar Final Exams in 2015. To the glory of God, all of them came out in flying colours and were subsequently called to the Nigerian Bar.

BARR. INDONGESIT NKECHI&LORETTAMr Okodi and his colleagues therefore decided to follow the footsteps of their predecessors at the Nigerian Law School by visiting The SCOAN in April, 2016 for prayers and counselling. The man of God was very receptive as he prayed for them and gave them the Morning Water with instructions on how to minister it while seeking the face of God. After that encounter, they all left with a strong faith and confidence that they would pass their forthcoming exams in flying colours. The fear of failure disappeared from their minds; they were all optimistic of a great outing.

The first sign of victory for them came on the very day of the exams. After writing the exams, they exuded an unexplainable sense of calmness. The irrepressible confession in their hearts was that they would surely come out with outstanding results. Just as they had confessed, when the results were released, all of them came out with excellently. As it stands today, they have all been called to the Nigerian Bar as barristers and solicitors of The Supreme Court Of The Federal Republic Of Nigeria.

Testifying during the Sunday service, the group led by Ini Okodi expressed their joy with what God has done for them through the Morning Water. They all glorified God for the grace He gave them to pass their exams successfully. Aside their successes at the Nigerian Law School, one of them also told congregants how a litigant who had taken her and her husband to court, changed his mind and became remorseful after she had received and ministered the Morning Water given to her on a plot of land that was in contention. On behalf of his colleagues, Mr Ini Okodi left the following advice to people all over the world: “People facing a challenge should find solution in God.”

BEYOND OFFENCE

The testimonies, soul-lifting songs of the choir and demonstration of God’s power via prophecy through Prophet T.B. Joshua made The SCOAN Sunday service of July 10, 2016 a worthwhile experience. The man of God enlightened believers all over the world on how satan uses his secrets to destroy man’s relationship with God. According to him, satan always aims to make Christians lose control so that they would act against the will of their Father in Heaven. “If you do not lose control, you cannot do the wrong thing”, he said. Prophet

PROPHET  T. B JOSHUAT.B. Joshua further revealed that satan causes people to lose control in order to lead them into destructive tendencies like killing, fighting, stealing, drunkenness and other shameful acts. “Satan causes people to lose control and commit all shameful acts.”

 

Concluding the enriching message, the man of God said it was sad that the whole world had lost control, a situation which has made it difficult for people to love their neighbours as themselves. He however admonished Christians to love without expectation, adding that the pursuit of material or classic ends should not be the basis for showing love or serving God.

In her message titled BEYOND OFFENCE, Evangelist Annette urged Christians all over the world to rise above the mundane strictures of holding on to offence. Citing the story of Joseph who was sold into slavery by his brothers yet did not hold a grudge against them even when he became Prime Minister of Egypt, she admonished all to embrace forgiveness and look up to God, beyond offence. “Beyond offence, there God is,” she submitted.

EVANGELIST ANNETTEShe described offence as a terrible tool used by satan to imprison God’s children. “Offence is a trap, an effective instrument used by satan to trap you, imprison you and make you a bond servant.” Concluding, she called on Christians to be on their guard and follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ who chose forgiveness even when He had the power to curse those who tormented and murdered Him on the cross for no offence of His own.

LOST TO PROSTITUTION, RESCUED BY JESUS

Miss Kelly Nkamanyi was only fifteen years-old when she absconded from home in Cameroon to mingle with bad friends – a development that left her mother severely heart-broken. Her father, a medical personnel was working in the United States then. His absence somewhat facilitated her waywardness as there was no one to guide her with the necessary iron fist. Her irresponsible lifestyle coupled with youthful exuberance continued until she became pregnant. The heavy burden of pregnancy and the challenges it brought forced the 15-year-old back to her mother who welcomed her with open arms, albeit with a subdued disappointment over her pregnancy.

MISS KELLY NKAMANYIKelly eventually gave birth to a baby boy but abandoned the child in her mother’s home and return to her wayward life. She had soon realised how tedious and devotional the life of a nursing mother was and determined she was not ready to face the stark realities of raising a child. Off she went again to continue gallivanting around with her friends. They would go to clubs and make themselves available to men who were only looking for women to satiate their unholy sexual appetites. Alcohol and drugs were the order of those days. In company of fellow prostitutes, she travelled to Lagos, Nigeria where she put up with another professional prostitute.

They would sleep all day but as soon as it was midnight, they would file out like a troop of hungry cats in search of their usual prey – irresponsible men who wanted the services of one, two and sometimes three girls at a time. The evil drama continued while her mother back in Cameroon was in mourning for a daughter whom she had not seen for years. Kelly had so much seeming fun in the vineyard of satan. She kept her family incommunicado about her whereabouts until one fateful day when she felt a sudden urge to call her sister, a phone call she had not made before. During the conversation, her elder sister told her she was in Nigeria to visit The SCOAN and invited her to join her. She reluctantly agreed but was sceptical, knowing that The SCOAN is a place where troubled souls like her can be delivered. After seeing Kelly for the first time in years, the sister gave her Morning Water, never divulging to her that the family had been praying with the Morning Water and Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV for her return. One night, after ministering the Morning Water into her bathing water and that of her friend in anticipation of their nocturnal flight to the club, the two birds of the same feather took their baths and uncharacteristically fell sleep, only to wake up by 5am. After discussing what to do after their strange behaviour, Kelly remembered the invitation to The SCOAN and as she arrived with her friend, it was evidently God’s power at work. Coincidentally, her father and mother were also waiting for her in the church. It was indeed a divine reconnection. That fateful Sunday, the man of God, through prophetic insight, called her out with the words, “Lost and found,” and delivered her in the mighty name of Jesus.

Testifying in company of her family, Miss Kelly Nkamanyi thanked God for her new life in Christ. According to her, all connections to the world have been severed by devotion to the Word of God. All those evil urges are no longer haunting her. She is free in Jesus’ name. In her advice to people all over the world, especially parents, she called on them to put their daughters in prayer whenever they are away from home.

SPIRIT OF WOMAN CRUMBLES BEFORE GOD’S OVERWHELMING POWER

Miss Mary Okoye developed masculine tendencies right from a tender age and grew up to find herself having a strong affection for fellow women. She continued to labour under that yoke for so long, to the extent that even her dressing portrayed her as a man and nobody really saw her as a woman. The evil spirit negatively affected her studies as she had to drop out of school after confrontations with cult groups and other gangs. When she realised that the problem was beyond her, she decided to visit The SCOAN for a solution.

MISS MARY OKOYE AND FAMILY (2)During a Sunday service, Prophet T.B. Joshua picked her out in the time of prophecy. During a session of powerful deliverance in the name of Jesus, the spirit of woman was successfully expelled from her life. Testifying in company of her mother and former partner, she told congregants that life has been more fulfilling since her deliverance. She no longer has affection for fellow woman. According to her, she has come to touch with her feminine nature and hopes to get married to a handsome man in the near future.

Also testifying, her former partner, Mrs Ajarat Asara, thanked God for her deliverance. She narrated how troubles in her marriage led her into having affairs with women. She however thanked God for using Prophet T.B. Joshua to deliver her from the spirit of woman. According to her, the idea to come to The SCOAN for help was her initiative and she remains ever grateful to God for it.

YOKE OF PROSTITUTION BROKEN

For seventeen years, Mrs Ameze Shabafo had been into prostitution in faraway Republic of Benin. Her father had wanted her to marry an older man whom she did not like and in order to avoid a marriage against her will, she fled to Cotonou and settled there. She lived in a hotel where she sold her body to men. Sometimes, she slept with up to twenty men in a day. For seventeen years, she experienced a lot of spiritual problems. She would find herself in dreams where she would have sex with different men and swim in the river with strange people. She could not really understand why she was being ruthlessly manipulated by the evil spirit.

She actually came to The SCOAN looking for more men to boost her illicit business. However, the mercy of God located her while Prophet T.B. Joshua was prophesying to the congregation during penultimate Sunday service. The man of God, led by the Holy Spirit called her out and instantly delivered her. As she returned for her testimony, she was full of praise to God for giving her a second chance to serve him. She regretted all the atrocities she had committed with men as a prostitute. She advised all those still involved in prostitution to come back to Jesus just as she did and is now happier for it.

 

SETBACK ARRESTED AS NEW BUSINESS SPRINGS TO GLORIOUS HEIGHTS

Mrs Angela Enrietti was Managing Director of a company which was hit by the winds of hardship. Knowing that she could not handle the problem with her human intelligence, she called on her mother and asked for the Morning Water. Her mother came down to Nigeria, received the Morning Water for her daughter and returned to South Africa. Mrs Enrietti and her husband started praying with the Morning Water and committed everything concerning their business into God’s hands. Within one month of using the Morning Water, things started changing and God granted wisdom to start a granite mining business.
All their debtors suddenly payed up and their business took off smoothly. Today, the granite mining company exports products to other countries. They have beeMRS ANGELA ENRIETTE AND MOTHERn able to acquire state of the art equipment, including a crane. They lack nothing today and are very happy that God has lifted them up once again. Testifying further, Mrs Enrietti also narrated how she was saved from a motor accident in a game park after ministering the Morning Water. According to her, even though the car she was driving somersaulted, she sustained no injuries as she saw the man of God pull her out from the wreckage of the car. Thanking God in company of her mother, she advised people to believe in God and His ability to heal, deliver and bring breakthrough in their lives.

FOUR YEARS OF JOBLESSNESS REPLACED BY CAREER BREAKTHROUGH AND FAVOUR

Due to the many responsibilities she had to shoulder, Mrs Chengeto Chivasa needed a job badly after she had left her native Zimbabwe to join her husband in South Africa. All efforts to get a job yielded no fruit so she decided it was time to seek God’s face. In 2012, she visited The SCOAN and prayed at the altar, proclaiming that she had left all her burdens there and would not return to South Africa with them. She also received the Morning Water which she ministered wholeheartedly during prayers.MRS CHENGETO CHIVASAAs soon as she landed at the airport in her home country, the educator discovered that she had a lot of missed calls on her phone. One was from her former Head of Department who informed her that she had been looking for her and that she had a job for her. Visiting her the next day, she discovered that the job was a permanent one, dousing every fear she had initially harboured concerning the nature of the job. Though she was happy to have secured the job, the next hurdle she had to cross was getting a work permit. As at that time, she had none, even though she had applied. Citing her pedigree, the HOD agreed to allow her work and also gave her time to sort out her work permit.

Following up at the Home Affairs Department, she was told that her permits had been approved technically but that it would take some weeks to be released physically. Her HOD was not happy that she had not presented her work permit and was given just two days to present it or lose her job. While appealing that the Home Affairs Department, they received a call from their agent informing them that the certificates were with him. That very evening, she collected them and gave thanks to God.

According to Mrs Chivasa, she ministered the Morning Water at every stage of the application process. She thanked God for blessing her eventually after four tortuous years of joblessness. Today, they own their own house in South Africa and have also been blessed with beautiful cars. To wrap up her interesting testimony, Mrs Chivasa advised people all over the world to seek God with all their mind.

ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE INSPIRED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT

Ill health had threatened her academic aspirations as she was studying for her Master’s degree in the United Kingdom. Mrs Joyce Durojaiye continued to score very low and discouraging grades because her health condition did not allow her to concentrate. Bothered by the development, her husband advised her to visit The SCOAN. When she finally came, she met the man of God and also received the Morning Water. She had requested the man of God to pray for her physically but he told her he had done so in his heart.

MRS JOYCE DUROJAIYE AND FAMILYMRS JOYCE 2

As she returned to the United Kingdom and started ministering the Morning Water on all her academic work and assignments, her grades began to improve. By her final year, she scored distinction in all her courses. She was also given an award for writing the best dissertation for the year 2015 by the school authorities and was inducted as a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals. Testifying to God’s intervention in her matter in company of her husband and children, she advised people to trust in God with all their hearts and lean not on their own understanding.

AGE-OLD OSTEOARTHRITIS HEALED COMPLETELY

Mrs Rachael Obadiah-West had been suffering from osteoarthritis right from her younger days. The ailment usually became aggravated during the rainy seasons when she would accumulate a lot of fluid and cause her great discomfort. Her mother had taken her to a traditional bone healer who made an incision on her leg and drained out the fluid that had accumulated yet the problem persisted. After her secondary school education, she managed to work for a few years before travelling to the United Kingdom to further her education.

MRS RACHEL OBADIAH WESTMRS RACHEL 2While in the UK, during a particular winter season, the problem resurfaced and had to be examined by doctors over there. With state of the art medical facilities, an arthroscopy was carried out to determine the cause of the swelling on her leg as well as the accumulation of fluid. After the medical examination, it was discovered that she had suffered from a childhood bone fracture which eventually developed into the problem she was facing. She was given a leg brace to aid her movement. After some time, the problem subsided.

Returning to Nigeria in 2009, the problem reared its ugly head again, forcing her to visit an orthopaedic hospital and several churches in search of a permanent solution. By that time, her right leg was gradually becoming distorted; it was no longer straight. She received a lot of analgesics and had to endure so much pain. All her fasting and prayers rendered no help. She only ended up with ulcers. Even when a knee replacement surgery was suggested, it was discovered that it wouldn’t work for her. She had to resort to the use of the leg brace.

According to her, God ordered her steps and led her to The SCOAN in April, 2016. It was here that she got information about the special Prayer Line service of June 11, 2016 in commemoration of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s fifty-third birthday anniversary. On that special Saturday, the man of God laid hands on her and God healed her completely of the ailment that had troubled her for fifteen years. It was a dramatic atmosphere at the Prayer Line that day as she removed her knee brace and flung it away forever. Thanking God for her healing, Mrs Obadiah-West, radiating so much joy, left the following advice to people all over the world – “When you seek God first, He is going to make your life complete.”

THE WAY YOU RESPOND

The SCOAN Sunday service of July 3, 2016 brought the children of God together to witness and share in the demonstration of God’s power and majesty above every other thing. Guided by His Word as well as the inspirational songs of the choir, congregants expressed their gratitude to God through testimonies. Knowing that God is the only dependable solution to every problem, they affirmed their faith in Him.

PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA

In his word of counsel, Prophet T.B. Joshua reminded Christians all over the world of the need to accept the challenges of life as part of their journey to greatness. According to the man of God, those who are destined for greatness in life must first face rejection, persecution and all sorts of trials in order to prepare themselves for new and higher levels in life. He said, “Challenges, sickness, disease and disappointments are normal; it is a way of life, you will get over them. Setback is normal, so far as you get over it. It is part of our way, everyday life. Persecution is normal, if you are alive and there is no persecution, etc., you need to ask yourself, ‘I am not noticed?’ If you are somebody or if in your future you are going to be somebody – persecution, crisis, etc. will come because satan sees where you are going – the only thing he can do is frustrate you, injure you so that you abandon your post.”

In his conclusion, he re-assured Christians that their trials will never be like those of unbelievers, noting that the travails of the believer would always make him or her a stronger person. But such a privilege, he reckoned, is only available to those who have a special relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ – “If you are not a Christian those things will impair you, destroy you or cost you your life. Because of the relationship you have with Jesus, He will not leave you. Once you have that relationship, He will always be aware of where you go, what you are doing, what is coming your way and will always be there to see you through. But if there is no relationship, your power cannot help you, you have no power to get you out of this. For others it may cost them their life. Your struggle is not like others.”

In her earlier message titled, THE WAY YOU RESPOND, Evangelist Ruth talked about a very significant cancer that has eaten deep into all fabrics of the society, including Christendom. She admonished Christians on the need to align with the ideals of Jesus, especially His attitude to unpleasant situations.

EVANGELIST RUTH

EVANGELIST RUTH

She called on them to desist from rash decisions and responses whenever they are provoked or put under pressure. She summed her message up with the following words – “One of the hardest things to do is to pause and reflect when you are provoked. When the truth was ignored, Jesus was silent, (Luke 23:3). Jesus’ response was never dictated by the emergency, pressure or tension of others. How would you respond if you were tempted with injustice? But many believers today live as common men. They allow their senses to rule their responses instead of the Spirit of God and because of that, the voice of the flesh grows louder in their hearts. Think about your response when you are wrongly accused, provoked, cheated, – does anyone need to teach you to insult, fight, lie, hold offence or take revenge? Your response determines your future”.

BEDWETTING DRYS UP AS GOD’S WORD REIGNS DOWN

MR & MRS RITA ORJI

MR & MRS RITA ORJI

Mrs Rita Orji had suffered so much disgrace in the hands of a terrible spirit that almost made a mess of her marriage. Shortly after her wedding, she had found herself wetting the bed. She would find herself in the dream urinating only for the act to happen in real life. Initially, her husband was not privy to the embarrassing scenario. He eventually found out much to his dismay. All her frantic antics to cover up for her bedwetting by shifting the blame on her innocent children would not last the test of time.  For Mr Orji, it was the shame of the century for his newly-wedded wife to wet the bed like toddlers who have no control over their reflexes. On many occasions, husband and wife had to sleep on separate beds as a result of the problem.

The more Mrs Orji had tried to control her natural reflexes, the worse the problem became. The psychological trauma she bore was very heavy. It was like a burden that she had to carry for life. It took the maturity and understanding of her husband to persevere, under such circumstance. Ultimately, they knew that seeking a spiritual solution was inevitable. Their united decision to come to The SCOAN for help brought the much desired solace.

Seated in the auditorium, Mrs Orji was the first to be called out by the man of God. Prophesying to the congregation, Prophet T.B. Joshua, led by the Holy Spirit, poured forth his prophetic insight about her problem. “There is a woman right on the gallery there. You are very plump, huge. But you are having an embarrassment. Every night, you find yourself bedwetting… Jesus wants to set you free. Don’t be shy; come out – Jesus loves you,” he said. Coming down from the gallery towards the man of God, she fell under the influence of the power of God as Prophet T.B. Joshua commanded the spirit to leave her in the mighty name of Jesus. As she landed on the floor, her husband rushed onto the scene and also received his deliverance.

As the couple rose to their feet, Prophet T.B. Joshua pointed out to them that the problem was caused by a spirit husband which never wanted her to get married. The man of God explained to them that a spiritual wife or husband could wreak serious havoc in any marriage where it operates. He declared the woman free and urged the couple to live in love for each other. During their testimony, the couple from Anambra State, Nigeria, took turns to narrate their unpalatable experiences. They thanked God for putting an end to the havoc caused by the evil spirit. There were signs of a great relief and respite in their countenances as they advised people all over the world to repose their trust in God, stressing that they should believe in Him as He works out the answers to their problems.

DECEPTIVE SPIRIT OF WOMAN DEALT WITH BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD

The untimely death of her mother when she was only two years-old dealt a fatal blow to her growing up. Her development was rough and culminated in a rape incident at age twelve. Unknown to the heartless rapist, he had left an indelible scar that would haunt her for life. Miss Chika grew up to hate men. Her entire life changed physically and spiritually. She had encountered a strange woman in her dream who would appear to her and make love with her only to make her develop and desire for women. The more she encountered the strange woman in the dream, the more she sought intimate relationships with fellow girls in secondary school.

Her travails in the hands of the strange woman became more complicated when the dream marauder started using the faces of different acquaintances to appear to her. The strange woman sometimes appeared as a python. Disturbed by the spiritual attacks and the continual lust for women, she sought help from different prayer houses but the problem persisted. The yoke continued to weigh her down until the Sunday when she visited The SCOAN in search of help.

As the man of God prophesied to the multitude of congregants during the Sunday service, his prophetic radar, controlled by the Holy Spirit, located her. “There is a woman. I think I’m looking at you here… You have this spirit of woman inside you. I’m seeing you on the gallery – come! You are a woman but you have a woman around you all the time. You don’t want to see man, that is the spirit of woman.” Coming down from the gallery and confirming the prophecy, Miss Chika narrated her horrible experiences in the hands of the evil spirit before the man of God sent the spirit packing with an anointed command backed by the mighty power of God. In that instant, the young lady from Anambra State fell to the ground under the influence of the anointing that breaks yokes.

Returning for her testimony this last Sunday, she told congregants how she had battled with the spirit of woman. According to her, it was like a spell that she could not resist. She thanked God for delivering her. She remains grateful to the Most High for the new lease of life she now enjoys through Christ Jesus. She no longer has the urge to have affairs with women and the strange woman in her dreams is gone forever. She left the following advice for people all over the world, especially the youths. “If you find yourself doing what I did before, run to Jesus. Only He can deliver you.”

 

“WHAT IS CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS WHEN I HAVE JESUS?”

MISS UCHE ALEX & MOTHER (1)

MISS UCHE ALEX & MOTHER

Last year December, Miss Uche Alex was involved in a near-fatal motor accident that almost consumed her consciousness. The car had summersaulted and had ejected the young lady into a small lagoon. As rescuers rushed to the scene to help her out, she was out of touch with her senses. It took her about twenty minutes to regain her consciousness. When she was taken to the hospital, she was already feeling pains all over her body. Necessary medical tests revealed that she had cervical spondylosis. According to the doctors, surgery was the only option. Miss Uche Alex rebuffed every suggestion of surgery even though she was faced with incapacitation and with her mother bearing the brunt of her condition. Instead, she opted to come to the Arena of Liberty.

At The SCOAN, she was admitted to the Prayer Line. As the man of God laid hands on her, she felt some hot sensation around her neck and eventually realised that the stiffness and pains were gone. The man of God thereafter asked her to take off the neck collar and declared her absolutely free from the impairing condition that had held her down. It was excitement galore as she moved victoriously around the auditorium thanking Jesus for healing her and restoring her health.

While testifying before The SCOAN congregation, Miss Uche Alex expressed her unreserved gratitude to God for healing her. In her advice, she urged people of weak faith to realise that there is no disease God cannot heal.

“GOD BLESSED MY DAUGHTER WITH A SET OF TRIPLETS AND LIFTED ME TO THE ZENITH OF MY CAREER.”

Mrs Lawal’s daughter had stopped seeing her menstruation shortly after getting married in 2012. The scenario prompted a visit to The SCOAN. During that visit on a Saturday, Prophet T.B. Joshua laid hands on her daughter and gave her the Morning Water. As she ministered the Morning Water, it took only twenty-four hours for her ceased menstruation to be restored. Within that same month, she became pregnant and went on to deliver a set of triplets. Ever since that miracle, Mrs Hassanat Lawal has continued to repose her faith in the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua.

As a civil servant, she had been a Director in the Kogi State Civil Service and had been seeking promotion to the position of a Permanent Secretary. Convinced that she would have her prayers granted by God at the Arena of Liberty, she wrote prayers requests down on a paper and proceeded to The SCOAN where the man of God laid hands on the list during a Prayer Line service. Number one on the list was her request to be made a Permanent Secretary. But after the man of God had laid hands on the list, she waited for her name to appear in the promotion board but it was not forthcoming. She almost became frustrated but mustered the faith that since Prophet T.B. Joshua had laid hands on the list, her promotion must be granted. She returned to The SCOAN and placed the prayer request on the floor, insisting that God would surely grant her request.

True to her faith, after waiting for a while, she was promoted to Acting Permanent Secretary. As she attempted to question the reason it was not a substantive promotion, the confirmation came. She was confirmed a substantive Permanent Secretary. And as she was still thanking God for the confirmation, after a few months, she was announced as the Acting Head of Service in Kogi State, a very powerful position that places her as the number one civil servant in the state. All those who sat for the promotion interview with her were sent on compulsory leave in order for her to emerge. Her status has improved drastically with the new promotion.

Testifying in company of her children, daughter in-law and grandchildren, Mrs Hassanat Lawal advised people all over the world to be patient with God and believe that whatever problems they have are solved through Christ Jesus.

SEVERELY CRUSHED FOOT TRANFORMED TO NORMAL

In order to beat the traffic jam that usually characterised the route to his work place, Mr Leonard Okoroji had parked his car somewhere and had boarded a commercial motorbike. As they zoomed towards his work place, the back tyre burst. As the rider tried to control the motorbike which was already swerving due to the burst tyre, they fell to the ground only to be rammed into by an approaching trailer. The rider was instantly crushed to death while Mr Leonard was dragged by the vehicle until it came to a halt. No one came close to rescue him initially because he was assumed dead. It took the waving of his hand to attract sympathisers who pulled him out from under the trailer with one of his feet badly damaged.

On getting to the hospital, he was admitted but without any improvement. His sister arranged for his transfer to a medical facility in Owerri, Imo State, Nigeria. After undergoing two surgeries, the request by his doctors for a third one was rejected by him. He preferred to come to The SCOAN, after a friend had introduced him to the ministry, to seek the supernatural power of God. Brought in a car to the entrance of the Walk Way where the Prayer Line is conducted, Mr Okorojo could not come down on his feet. The man of God had to go and minister healing to him right inside the car. As the man of God pointed his hands towards Mr Okoroji and prayed in Jesus’ name, his damaged foot began to shake. Prophet T.B. Joshua commanded him to look into his eyes and walk. As he obeyed, he summoned strength to rise and that became the first time he would walk unaided in a long while. Immediately he stepped his feet on the ground, Mr Okoroji started walking as the crowd that had gathered to witness the miracle burst into praises to God.

During his testimony, he told congregants how elated he was to have received his healing at the Arena of Liberty.He left them to ponder over the following advice: “God is still God and He answers prayers; just have faith.”

Sunday, 26 June, 2016 was another scintillating experience in God’s presence at The SCOAN. The church service was remarkable in many ways. The manifestation of God’s power through prophecy, testimony and mountain-moving prayers inspired so much hope and songs of thanksgiving amidst the congregation. Prophet T.B. Joshua engaged the minds of Christians with the Word of God. In his message, he urged them to continue to trust God no matter the condition they find themselves in.

PROPHET TB JOSHUA

PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA

According to him, the good Christian must not allow situations to rule him or her because, “In our walking with God, there are good and hard times alike.” Speaking further, he urged congregants not to allow their situation to make them lose faith in God, stressing that if they allowed such, they would lose their relationship with Him. He also bemoaned the disconnect between people and the Spirit of God due to their attachment to worldly cares. “People have the Word all over the world but they cannot obey it because they need the Spirit,” he submitted.

Evangelist Evelyn Joshua had earlier spoken to the congregation. In her message, she urged Christians to maintain a solid relationship with God as that is the only guarantee for a great future of glory and honour in Him. By keeping a good relationship with God,

EVANGELIST EVELYN

“The supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit are given to us to minister to one another.” She concluded by emphasizing to Christians the need to love God and maintain a good relationship with Him. “The main thing about you as a believer is not the work you do for God but the relationship you maintain. If you want to do great things, you must have a great relationship with Him,” she added.

TESTIMONIES

“I RECEIVED A GREAT CAREER BREAKTHROUGH AFTER VISITING THE SCOAN”

Before she got to know about Emmanuel TV and The SCOAN, her life had been a playground for an evil spirit which usually came to torment her in her dreams, raping her and leaving her dejected in real life. Sometimes, she would see elephants pursuing and trying to attack her in her dreams. As she battled with those burdens, her sister introduced her to Emmanuel TV. The more she watched Emmanuel TV, the more she desired to come to The SCOAN. Miss Memory Kasema, a Zambian, resident in the United Kingdom, eventually got the opportunity to visit The SCOAN in 2013.

MISS MEMMORY KASEMA

At The SCOAN, she went through the Prayer Line and also received the Morning Water. As she prayed with the Morning Water, she committed her career into God’s hands. As a registered nurse, she had been experiencing setbacks, in spite of her intelligence and hard work. Most of her mates were promoted but she remained stagnant. Having missed two job opportunities in Scotland and Northern Ireland, she continued to minister the Morning Water in prayer. Another opportunity surfaced thereafter and a job interview was scheduled.

Miss Kasema, having been given the date and time for the interview and the large volume of reading materials, ministered the Morning Water and read only a small portion of the documents because there wasn’t the luxury of time. As she sat for the interview, it was like clockwork. All the questions that were thrown at her came from those areas she had covered during her reading. After the interview, she was informed that a job was waiting for her. The new job came with a significantly bigger remuneration. All her travelling documents which should have taken about two weeks to arrange, came in less than ten days with all expenses paid, including accommodation and feeding.

Miss Kasema expressed immense gratitude to God for lifting her higher than her expectations. To that effect, she advised people all over the world not to be discouraged in times of trials but to see the Morning Water as a weapon for pulling down strongholds.

ONE ANOINTED BLOW SENDS TUBERCULOSIS TO THE GRAVE

In April 2015, Miss Sindoe Naaege from French Guiana was diagnosed with tuberculosis. Her case was said to be a medical emergency because it was severe. Being a very contagious disease, she was worried about the possibility of spreading the disease to other people. As she grappled with the psychological effects of having the disease, she also battled with the symptoms of the ailment. Severe weakness of the body and loss of weight became a part of her daily life. She almost had her career strangulated by the gradual killer yet she would not panic. She hung onto her faith and trusted in God and was later introduced to the Morning Water.

MISS SINDOE NAAEGE

Just after three days of ministering the Morning Water, the deadly tuberculosis disappeared totally. By the time the French national would return to confirm her health status, she was given a clean bill of health. Her new medical report showed that she is totally free from tuberculosis. Radiating an air of joy and calmness, she advised people on the sick bed, especially youth, to believe that Jesus is alive and remains the same yesterday, today and forever.

“THE HOLY SPIRIT TORMENTED MY TORMENTOR TO DEPART”

Mr Etumodor Jonathan always went to swim in a river in his childhood days. Unknown to him, the swimming would not just end in the physical world. As he slept, he would find himself swimming in rivers and having sex with men in the dream. That dream experience soon became a recurring event to the extent that a spirit would appear to him and cajole him into sexual relations. The spirit would eventually propel him into male prostitution across different states in Nigeria. He became a habitual browser of social media platforms that created opportunities for him to meet men. He would keep dating appointments with married men and would sometimes reject offers only to connect his unwanted patrons to other homosexuals. It became a huge money-making venture for him even as he initiated so many people into the unholy trade.

MR JONATHAN

He would dress like women in order to attract more men. It got to a level that he became infected with the Human Immuno-Deficiency Virus (HIV). All spiritual efforts to deliver him proved abortive. His case was almost an incurable one. In spite of all the harassments he had received from the public, he wouldn’t stop his illicit behavior. Somehow, he had discovered Emmanuel TV in Enugu, in a relative’s house. Anytime, he touched the screen of the TV set broadcasting Emmanuel TV, he would fall to the ground. Realising that there was a power that could set him free at The SCOAN, he decided to visit.

During the Mass Prayer, on a previous Sunday service, Mr Jonathan came face to face with the raw power of the Most High. As the man of God ministered deliverance to him, the evil spirit, crying like a wounded animal, confessed how it had almost ruined the young man’s life with the spirit of man. As the anointing in Prophet T.B. Joshua landed on Mr Jonathan, he crashed to the floor as the spirit was completely decimated through the power in the name of Jesus Christ. Since that moment, Mr Jonathan has become a new creation.

Thanking God during his testimony for saving him from destruction and death in the hands of the evil spirit, the young Nigerian from Delta State, regretted his past deeds and asked for forgiveness from those who must have been affected by his wrong choices. He advised people all over the world to hope only in God for their deliverance, stressing that all should run to God because He is the ultimate solution.

 

DELIVERED FROM THE GRIP OF A SPIRIT WOMAN

She was six years-old when she had an encounter with a beautiful lady inside a river. Young Nadine was in company of her cousin playing by the riverside when she eventually found herself in the deep. The beautiful lady helped her out after asking her what had brought her to such a dangerous place. After that experience, the lady visited her in the dream and gave her a gold ring and power in her mouth, eyes, breasts and private part. The essence of the power was to enable her to seduce men at will.

MISS NADINE

As the lady in the river became more dominant in her life, she received the eyes of a snake that enabled her to attract men. She became very powerful as the spirit woman continued to supply her with different types of evil powers. It got to a level that whatever she pronounced came to pass. At 22, she put her powers to maximal use. She dealt with anyone who dared to step on her toes. A lot of men felt the brunt of her wrath, especially those married men who tried to play deceptive games with her. Most of the men who slept with her did not know that they were only inserting their manhood into the mouth of a snake which represented her private part. Such men ended up having problems or fathering deformed children.

She became an errand girl to the spirit woman who sent her out to nightclubs to destroy men who loved women of easy virtue. Sometimes, the spirit would possess her in order to be able to destroy men through illicit sex. She did not have sex with men for money. She only wanted to destroy their lives. Nadine soon graduated into occult practices. She became a witchdoctor, practiced black magic and wielded a lot of influence. She would deceptively purport to heal people and help girls overcome their problems. But all her gifts were not free; they came with a destructive price. Her relationship with the spirit woman got to a level that they communicated one on one. The spirit woman gave her a couple of protective charms which had terrible side effects. She used those charms to destroy so many marriages and caused some of her patrons to lose their children. Some of the women who patronised her never knew that they were destroying their destinies. All those who consulted her for love potions ended up destroying their lovers. In conjunction with the spirit woman, she would give out fruits and food gifts to innocent people who ended up being destroyed through accidents, diseases and sundry calamities

Having destroyed many people, the spirit woman wanted her to get pregnant and sacrifice her child to the kingdom of darkness but she refused. That was the beginning of her problem with the spirit woman. In the midst of her dilemma, a friend introduced her to Emmanuel TV but the spirit woman would not allow her to concentrate and listen to the Word of God. As the spirit woman never wanted Nadine to be delivered, it battled to distract her anytime she tried to listen to the man of God. It was her quest for freedom that finally brought her to The SCOAN.

As Prophet T.B. Joshua unleashed the power of God during Mass Prayer on that fateful Sunday, the evil spirit in her spoke out. “I am the deceiver. I want to destroy her. I don’t want her to get married. I took everything – her Porsche car, her house, her shop and her business… I destroyed her contact with her family. We are 35…” Immediately the man of God laid his hand on her, she crumbled to the ground. The evil spirit was finally expelled in the mighty name of Jesus.

Testifying and displaying some of the charms she had used to wreak havoc on many innocent souls, she thanked God for letting her loose from the grip of the evil spirit. All those evil experiences and dreams are no more; she is now completely free. She advised people to desist from witchcraft and witchdoctors.

A PROPHECTIC DECLARATION TURNS SETBACK TO BREAKTHROUGH

Mr Jonathan Ogiku came to The SCOAN with many burdens. He had lost his job and had been unable to pay his bills. Life was a bitter lot for him as he also came under the heavy pressure of financial insolvency. He was virtually left to his unfortunate fate as nobody cared to lend a helping hand. All the projects he had started could not be completed. With the stark reality of poverty staring at him, he knew he needed God at all costs. The chartered accountant, with a very enviable academic background, was spotted by the man of God during a recent Sunday service.

MR JONATHAN OGIKU

Led by the Holy Spirit, Prophet T.B. Joshua called him out and told him about the challenges he had been facing as a result of his job loss. The man of God also told him, to the delight of congregants, that after he was delivered, his life would change. Mr Ogiku thereafter received the anointed touch of the man of God and he fell to the ground under the influence of the anointing that breaks the yoke.

As he returned to The SCOAN for his testimony, Mr Ogiku told congregants that his breakthrough came barely weeks after his deliverance. According to him, a better job came after a few weeks. In the new job, he received unexpected increments in his remuneration. He was later promoted to Senior General Manager and Head of Audit for Nigeria, Central and West Africa. As a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Accountants of Nigeria, he has been recognized as a resource person of distinction for his presentation skills and papers. He has been a regular member of faculty at different seminars and training platforms both within and outside Lagos.

Now enjoying a new dispensation of freedom through the power of Jesus, he has been able to complete all his abandoned projects and is no longer a slave to poverty and lack. All his needs are met as and when due. His employers are taking care of him very well. Thanking God for turning his sadness into joy, Mr Ogiku advised people to take the declarations of the Prophet of God seriously as they would always come to pass, irrespective of the prevailing physical circumstances.

 

CRUMBLING MARRIAGE SAVED BY PROPHECY

Mr and Mrs Mulawisha were living peacefully as husband and wife until the year 2006 when an unpleasant tide of evil attacks punctuated their marriage. Mrs Mulawisha had nightmares in which she would see her mother in-law come to torment her. The torment became rampant to the extent that she almost became paranoid and depressed. In an effort to bring her husband into the picture, she had told him about her experiences, thinking he could help her. But Mr Mulawisha could not swallow what his wife told him. He felt it was an affront on him for his mother to be fingered as the brain behind his wife’s problem. Mr Mulawisha compounded the whole thing by letting the cat out of the bag to his mother.

MR AND MRS MULAWISHA

Both his extended family and that of his wife were then pitched against each other and drawn into some kind of crisis. All efforts to bring about peace failed; not even the intervention of Mrs Mulawisha’s parents could appease her mother in-law who felt she was wrongly accused. As the crisis brewed on, Mr Mulawisha and his wife fell apart. They lived like two flowers sharing the same root but living in separate worlds. Mrs Mulawisha would sleep in the bedroom while her husband made do with the sitting room. Gradually, they lost affection for each other. Mr Mulawisha eventually went after other women outside and ended up fathering a child out of wedlock.

No one would be happy if their mother was accused of witchcraft. And so, Mr Mulawisha would not be an exception. That wrong accusation became the gateway to all the negative things that worked against his marriage. At a time, there was total lack of communication and intimacy between husband and wife. For four years, they could not come to terms with each other. Even though her mother in-law later died, Mrs Mulawisha was never at peace with herself. She had wanted the whole matter resolved amicably and had sought spiritual help from different places but all her efforts hit the brick wall.

Fed up with their inability to resolve their differences, the couple had gambled with the option of divorce. But before that, they wanted to see the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, whose God-given wisdom and prophetic insight is much sought after. They eventually visited The SCOAN. As the man of God prophesied during the service, he walked up to them and spoke about their matter. “There is a dispute in the house. When you sleep in the room, she will sleep in the sitting room. When you sleep in the sitting room, she will sleep in the room,” said the man of God. Confirming the prophecy to be true and stating that it was the reason they were in the church, the man of God laid hands on them and they were delivered. The manifestation of God’s anointing on them was instant as they both fell to the ground.

Testifying, the couple regretted their different roles in the saga. They confessed that after their deliverance, the lost love in their lives had been found. Mrs Mulawisha apologised to her husband, her late mother in-law and members of her husband’s family. The couple advised people to seek the face of God in whatever situation they may encounter in life.

HIS PROMOTION WAS RELEASED FROM HEAVEN

Mr Dennis Tuapaye had written his promotion exams as a police officer and was told by friends that his name appeared in the list of those who passed the exams and would be promoted to their next rank. However, he received the greatest and strangest shock of his life when the page that was supposed to contain his name was blank. Confused and distraught by the strange development, Mr Tuapaye realised that he needed God to resolve his dilemma. He started watching Emmanuel TV and reading the Word of God.

ASP DENNIS TUAPAYE  ASP DENNIS TUAPAYE1

He received so much inspiration from the teachings of Prophet T.B. Joshua and decided to visit the church during the 53rd birthday anniversary of the man of God. During the special Prayer Line of June 11, 2016, Mr Tuapaye received the anointed touch of the man of God as well as the Morning Water. Returning home, he prayed and ministered the Morning Water, calling on God to unravel the mystery surrounding his missing name. The next day, a call came from his office informing him of the release of a new list of promoted officers.

When he got to his office, he met twelve other officers waiting to check if their names appeared on the list. Mr Tuapaye was informed that of the thirteen of them that had come to check, he was the only one whose name appeared on the promotion list. To the glory of God, Inspector Dennis Tuapaye was promoted to an Assistant Superintendent of Police. He was filled with joy as he testified to God’s grace in his life after waiting to be promoted for six years.

01 PROPHET T.B.JOSHUAProphet T.B. Joshua marked his 53rd birthday anniversary with an explosive Sunday Service as an outpouring of testimonies, signs and wonders filled the screen of Emmanuel TV. The previous day, Saturday, God had unleashed His power on the sick who thronged the premises of The SCOAN to receive their healing as a birthday gift from Heaven. The whole world watched on Emmanuel TV as chains were broken and captives were set free from various afflictions.

After those who had received healing testified during The SCOAN Live Sunday Service of June 12, 2016, the man of God still went ahead to lead a Mass Prayer that saw many oppressed delivered as they manifested and vomited poisonous substances. Those who were watching and praying along with the man of God from their homes around the world also received a touch of God’s grace and blessing. Nations were not left out as their affairs were committed into the hands of God by Prophet T.B. Joshua.

Speaking on the special service of his birthday, the man of God stated, “Birthday is to bless the sick, to deliver those who need to be delivered”. Continuing, the man of God identified with the congregants and people all over the world concerning the present socio-economic realities across the world and the need to persevere in prayer. “In this season, there is poverty and sickness everywhere. God promised to release a mighty anointing to do the job. My people need breakthrough and good health to celebrate better. To have breakthrough and good health, you need a mighty anointing that will separate the wheat from the situation you are complaining of. We have been listening to testimonies since morning and the testimonies will never stop. It is your turn.”

Concluding, Prophet T.B. Joshua called on the Holy Spirit to take over the service. “Let’s welcome the Holy Spirit mightily. Take more of us, Lord and give us more of You – more of Your purity, holiness, faithfulness, kindness. We want Your declaration, confirmation, Lord. Thank You, Lord!”

TESTIMONIES

DEPRESSION CAME TO KILL, STEAL AND DESTROY BUT JESUS SAID, “NO!”

Overwhelmed by the plethora of challenges life had thrown her way, young Miss Evelyn from Malaysia became fed up with her existence and almost threw in the towel in the battle of survival. Depression took over her spirit and built its destructive tent there. Often times, she would harbour suicidal thoughts, thinking that the sunny side of life would never come her way. She was definitely not to blame for all the terrible experiences as her family background was enmeshed in idol worship and thus hindered any meaningful communion with the Most High God.02 MISS EVELYN

Growing up under the tutelage of her parents, she joined them in serving and paying obeisance to strange gods which only caused more retrogression in the family. Ancestral spirits became the focal point of worship as they were offered incense and libations for the ‘liberation’ of the family. Young Evelyn, carried away with the fantasies of youth, enjoyed the ritualistic nature of her religious background without an inkling of the grave dangers they posed to her spiritual development. Her romance with idol worship was for better or for worse!

Growing up, she discovered that her aspirations in life were miles apart from the ruthless realities that stared her in the face. Of course, the consequence of that discovery resulted in frustration, loss of hope and depression which in turn gave birth to suicidal thoughts. In her reckoning, people never liked her. She felt she was socially rejected and concluded that there was nothing to live for. She struggled with that piteous mindset and at one time, almost jumped down from a twenty-storey building. Feelings of worthlessness, low self-esteem and failure took over her heart like weeds unyielding to the farmer’s cutlass.

Changing jobs due to an unexplained lack of satisfaction, her career almost became comatose. Her interpersonal relationship was a fundamental disaster. When it dawned on her that there was no easy way out of her dilemma and having been disappointed by her famous but powerless gods, she decided to explore superior options. Incidentally, she had become acquainted with The SCOAN many years prior and had even dreamt of receiving prophecy and deliverance from Prophet T.B. Joshua. Against all discouraging odds, Evelyn found her way to Nigeria to visit The SCOAN.

Penultimate Sunday, she attended the church service and had an interesting encounter with the Prophet of God. Walking up to her in the congregation, Prophet T.B. Joshua told her, “You have the spirit of suicide. You want to commit suicide. You have depression – serious depression. Three times, you attempted to commit suicide. Your family serves gods – strong gods”. Confirming the prophecy to be true, Evelyn received her deliverance in the mighty name of Jesus.

During her testimony, she revealed to the world how depression almost led her into taking her own life. She however regretted her actions and told the congregants that she no longer harbours suicidal thoughts as the Spirit of God has taken over her heart, filling her with inner peace and a sense of satisfaction. “Get used to challenges. God did not promise that we will not encounter challenges but He promised to see us through,” she reminded congregants and viewers all over the world.

 

 

 

“IN JESUS’ NAME, GET UP AND WALK!”

The debilitating hands of lumbar spondylosis had targeted several parts of Mrs Felicia Nwachi’s body and rendered them ineffective. From her head to toes through her spine, an excruciating pain remained for fifteen years. She was in for the toughest time of her life. It was a tale of incessant pains and anguish as she could not walk on her feet. All efforts both traditional and orthodox made by her family to get her back on her feet proved abysmally abortive until her daughter brought her to The SCOAN, following Prophet T.B. Joshua’s decision to pray for the sick and troubled as part of his birthday celebrations.03 MRS FELICIA & FAMILY (1)

She was brought in a car, unable to walk. The man of God came to her outside the auditorium and demonstrated God’s power in action as he prayed for Mrs Nwachi’s daughter. The man of God then instructed her daughter to pray for Mrs Nwachi. As soon as her daughter laid hands on her, she testified that she felt something come out of her eyes! Suddenly, a woman who had been in a wheelchair for fifteen years, sprang to her feet and began to walk, declaring the awesomeness of the Most High.03 MRS FELICIA & FAMILY (2)

Testifying before the congregation, a visibly elated Mrs Nwachi walked around happily, thanking God for restoring her to her feet. She expressed joy that she can now sleep peacefully as against her previous state of not being able to sleep at all due to the pain all over her body. She pledged to remain faithful to Jesus Christ.

RECONCILED WITH GOD AND FAMILY AFTER 25 YEARS OF SMOKING

Mr Konstantinos was deep in sin. He lusted after women, drank alcohol and smoked three packets of cigarette daily, for twenty-five years. He was always out clubbing and enjoying the ‘good things of life.’ It got to an extent that he started to ask himself fundamental questions about his wayward life. He tried to seek help from many churches but the more he did, they greater his sins became. Matters got to an unbearable end when his irresponsible ways became the cause of family squabbles, with his marriage hanging in the balance. By this time, the Greek national had started praying to God to help him out of his unwholesome ways. He yearned for an opportunity to forsake his sins and embrace God, asking for direction to a place where he could get real help.04 MR KONSTANTINOS & SON.jpg

Along the way, he was introduced to Emmanuel TV by a friend. As he started watching and praying with Prophet T.B. Joshua, he noticed that his life was changing gradually. He vomited poisonous substances as the prayers continued. Peace began to return to his family. On two occasions, he was saved from death. On one of those occasions, he almost lost his life as he tried to rescue a dog which had fallen into a heavy duty machine. He escaped to safety after some people came to rescue him while he was meditating on the prayers he had witnessed Prophet T.B. Joshua offer on Emmanuel TV. According to him, “The prayers of Prophet T.B. Joshua had a lot of influence on me. I would touch my screen and the things that were taking place at The SCOAN were happening to me also.

Thanking God for his deliverance through the Emmanuel TV medium, Mr Konstantinos said he has now reconciled with his family and is at peace with himself as even the urge for smoking and all other vices have disappeared. Mr Konstantinos advised people to uphold the saying that distance is not a barrier.

BROKEN BONES MADE WHOLE AGAIN

Battered by a hit-and-run truck, Mrs Chinwe Amandi had her bones fractured. The doctors, after conducting an X-ray, ordered that she should undergo surgery but the woman would have none of that. She remembered she has a God that can do all things. She was completely incapacitated and could not carry out her domestic chores without the help of her crutches and husband, a popular Nollywood actor who had to cut short a production to attend to her. She continued struggling with life until God showed up through Prophet T.B. Joshua.05 MRS AMANDI HUSBAND (1)

The man of God had informed the world about his intention to hold a Prayer Line on Saturday June 11, 2016 as a divine instruction to mark his 53rd birthday anniversary. Mr and Mrs Amandi seized the opportunity to register for the healing programme. At the Prayer Line, the man of God laid hands on Mrs Amandi and the power of God sent her to the ground. As she stood up, she started walking without support for the first time in many months. Her husband also fell to the ground as he came one on one with the touch of God through the anointed man of God. Springing to his feet to join his wife in the frenzy of celebration, Mr Amandi observed, “The man of God not only prayed for my wife but he prayed for me too and I started laughing with joy!05 MRS AMANDI HUSBAND (2)

Mrs Amandi showed the congregation that she is now very fit and can even run and walk majestically. She advised the world in the following words: “Believe that God can heal you. Once you believe, your problem is solved”.

 

“ALL THINGS NOW WORK FOR GOOD SINCE I MET CHRIST ON EMMANUEL TV”

Mr Dancho Hadzhieu’s actions had become a thorn in the flesh to many.  Having been born into an extremely wealthy family, he never lacked anything. The young Bulgarian living in Greece began beating people up and confiscating their money, fearing no one because he knew his parents wielded a lot of influence in his community. While in high school, he formed a gang that specialised in harassing unsuspecting persons. He knew he was not doing the right things but just could not put a stop to them. He felt like a god.

06 MR DANCHIO HADZHIEUHe eventually joined the police force after graduating from the academy but continued to carry out his nefarious activities with even more confidence as a police officer. Because he had the gun and uniform, he would beat people up mercilessly and unlawfully without any feeling of regret. At one stage, the police authorities got wind of his misdemeanours and threatened to sack him but instead of showing remorse, Mr Hadzhieu boasted that they should do their worst to him. He told his superior that he had money to take care of himself and that their action against him meant nothing. Even though his conscience pricked him from time to time, he could not help but continue in his bad characters.

One day, while at home, he received a sack letter. Infuriated, he made up his mind to continue in his irresponsible life. He started a night life, hanging out with a mafia group, smoking and drinking. He never bothered about the consequences of his actions because he still had friends in the police. The hand of God eventually grabbed him however, after a friend had visited to preach salvation to him. The same friend also introduced him to Emmanuel TV and Prophet T.B. Joshua. In spite of his initial misgivings, he was convinced to watch Emmanuel TV.

While watching Prophet T.B. Joshua pray for people via Emmanuel TV, Mr Hadzhieu cried out to God to have mercy on him and change him from his evil ways. Since that day, his life truly changed. He stopped gambling, drinking and smoking. All the problems hanging on his shoulders disappeared. All the court cases instituted against him were quashed and he was even recalled and reabsorbed into the police force with a superior rank.

Visiting The SCOAN last Sunday to testify to God’s goodness and how his life was transformed, he expressed so much joy for finding Christ through Emmanuel TV and regretted all the evils he had done in the past. “If you have spoken negative words about T.B. Joshua, ask God for forgiveness,” he advised congregants and people all over the world, recalling the Scripture in Matthew 10:41 that if we honour a prophet of God, we would receive a prophet’s reward, in Jesus’ name.

“I AM BACK ON MY FEET! THANK YOU JESUS!”

Mrs Diane Ebele Okeke was confined to the wheelchair for years. Since 2009, she had been having serious issues with her legs. She was thereafter diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis which had rendered her ineffective as a mother and as a wife. Initially, there were fears that she may not be able to bear a child as the illness had affected many other parts of her body including her waist. 07 MRS DIANE EBERE& FAMILY (1)She had been living with the support of family members for several years. Many visits to different hospitals did not yield any solution. Even when she managed to give birth to a child, after a very long labour, the problem worsened. You can imagine how a woman confined to the wheelchair and in pain could breastfeed her baby. It was a serious travail for her!

Her seven years of anguish eventually came to an end on Saturday June 11, 2016 as Prophet T.B. Joshua held a Prayer Line in commemoration of his 53rd birthday anniversary as directed by the Holy Spirit. Mrs Okeke was brought down to The SCOAN all the way from Abuja in her wheelchair. As the man of God was ministering healing outside the auditorium, Mrs Okeke cried out and attracted his attention. Laying his anointed hands on her in the mighty name of Jesus, Mrs Okeke sprang to her feet and walked without support for the first time in seven years. Shouting, “I am healed… Thank you Jesus,” there was wild jubilation by her sister and those who witnessed the demonstration of God’s power through the man of God. 07 MRS DIANE EBERE& FAMILY (2)Testifying in company of her sister, Mrs Okeke thanked God for her healing, saying that she now does things for herself. All the pain that had made her life sorrowful are gone for good.

STOLEN MONEY RETURNED

While trying to reconcile her accounts after close of work, Mrs Okechukwu had discovered a shortfall of two hundred and fifty thousand naira. She was confused as all attempts to trace the source of the problem failed. Not even a detailed viewing of the CCTV could trace the source of the missing money. Bearing in mind the implication of that development, she knew that summary dismissal was in the offing for her. The bank teller was not going to give in to the pranks of the devil and so she immediately called one of the numerous Prayer and Counselling Lines from Emmanuel TV and prayed with the Emmanuel TV Prayer Warriors.08 MR&MRS OKECHUKWU DAVIES

Mrs Okechukwu ran home to pick up her Morning Water. Returning to her office, she prayed with zeal, asking God to locate the source of that money, no matter who had it or where it was hidden. After the prayer, she ministered the Morning Water all around her cubicle. Later that night, she dreamt of meeting Prophet T.B. Joshua. In that dream, the man of God asked her, “Who am I?” three times and she replied, “You are my Prophet”. Immediately, he asked her to sit down, she woke up from sleep.

Resuming work on Monday, she met a rather lukewarm reception. She had been told to relinquish her daily duties while investigations continued. By this time, there were muted insinuations that she might have stolen the money and was only looking for a soft landing out of the whole dilemma. But the following day, she received a call urging her to run down to the office; the mysteriously missing money had been found! On getting to her workplace, she shed tears of joy as the money was found in a spot that had been searched thoroughly. In her heart, she knew that someone had stolen the money but returned it due to the intensity of her prayer and Morning Water ministration.

Thanking God alongside her husband, Mrs Okechukwu advised people to trust in God as there is nothing too difficult for God.

IN SPITE OF THE ODDS, GOD MADE HIM THE BEST

Mr Trevor Phillips had abandoned his degree programme in Music Production and Sound Engineering and began pursuing other careers. In prayer one day, he said that God told him to return to school and complete the degree he had started. The UK citizen, resident in Australia, returned to school and moved from Adelaide to Melbourne in order to complete the practical aspects of the course. In Melbourne, he and his family discovered Emmanuel TV and developed great interest watching the channel and building their faith in the things of God. As they continued to watch Emmanuel TV, their spiritual lives improved and they were uplifted and blessed by the testimonies of people as well as the motivating messages of Prophet T.B. Joshua. After a while, his wife was granted a job which provided the finances needed for his degree. By May 2015, he completed his degree programme to the glory of God.09 MR&MRS TREVOR &BABY

The school authorities sent him a special invitation to attend the graduation ceremony as the Best Graduating Student with the highest grades in the whole of Australia. He was given an award to that effect and was also honoured with the rare privilege of speaking to other graduates at the valedictory event. Mr Trevor Phillips, in company of his wife and child, thanked God for lifting him to the zenith of academic breakthrough. He advised people, especially students to focus on God and pursue their dreams no matter how difficult they appear, adding that God will surely see them through.

GOODBYE TO THE DEVOURER

Anastasia Mavridoy started working at the age of 20. Even though she was making a lot of money, it remained a mystery to her how she easily frittered it away. Though she was buying and selling across the world, she had nothing to show for her hard work. She was earning between 300,000 to 500,000 euros monthly but still could not boast of anything. She became sad and depressed. Each night she would retire to her room, calling on God to help her out of her problem. She started watching Emmanuel TV and developed a longing to visit The SCOAN for deliverance. It was strange to her that a woman who made so much money could not account for it; definitely, there was something wrong somewhere.10 MRS ANASTASIA MAVRIDOY

Eventually, her prayer for an opportunity to visit The SCOAN soon materialised. She got the exact money she needed to fund her trip and headed to Nigeria. When she arrived in The SCOAN, she received the Morning Water and a prophetic message from Prophet T.B. Joshua concerning her agricultural business. According to the man of God, the business would boom. As soon as she returned to Greece, she ministered the Morning Water, declaring that her business would thrive as prophesied by the man of God.

By the grace of God, her business soon became a beehive as people trooped in to buy her products – in numbers beyond her imagination. As the business brought more and more gain, she was encouraged to register another company called ‘TEMITOPE Company’ in honour of the man of God whom God used to revive her business fortunes. Thanking God for blessing her and making her smile once again, Mrs Mavridoy reminded people all over the world that there is always a spirit behind every problem. She advised them to take their burdens to God.

JESUS REVIVED HIS HEARTBEAT

Twelve years prior, Pastor Ely Blunck had developed a severe heart problem. As the problem persisted, he underwent surgery in which a pacemaker was inserted into his chest to enable his heart to beat. PEACEMAKER MAN1The Brazilian pastor had been living with the pacemaker for many years until the power of God fell upon him during The SCOAN Live Sunday Service. As Prophet T.B. Joshua was moving among the congregation, he stopped in front of Pastor Blunck and placed his hand upon his chest in prayer. As the anointing of God permeated the atmosphere during the prayers, Pastor Blunck suddenly felt his heart beating by itself. Rushing forward, he gave thanks to God for the miraculous healing he had received.

PEACEMAKER MAN2Overwhelmed with tears and shouts of joy, other Latin American nationals who had come to The SCOAN for the special birthday celebrations, thanked God for reviving his heart beat.

As they expressed their gratitude to God, they also presented their national flags, declaring that they had come to The SCOAN with the express purpose of inviting Prophet T.B. Joshua to their nations. The delegations were comprised of nations from Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Peru, Cuba, Mexico, Russia and Greece. 253416The service was indeed a celebration of God’s love and grace through the life and ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua as he marked his 53rd birthday to the glory of God!

LOVE FROM THE HEART

The SCOAN Sunday Service of June 5, 2016 brought to the fore God’s generous blessings on the lives of His people. Congregants partook of the occasion by sharing their testimonies and joining the choir to sing excellent praises to God. There was an overflow of healing, prophecy and deliverance. Speaking about his forthcoming birthday celebrations on Sunday June 12, 2016, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua informed the congregation about his plans for the event as directed by the Holy Spirit.

According to the man of God, in the face of the economic hardship and other challenges in the world, he has been directed to hold a Prayer Line session on Saturday, June 11, 2016 starting by 10am. He announced that registration for the sick and others who need deliverance would commence on Wednesday June 8, 2016 beginning from 10am to 4pm. The man of God urged congregants to share with the needy the good things God has given them, both material and emotional gifts such as love and moral support. He encouraged Christians all over the world to give freely so that they can have abundance. He emphasised the essence of showing love to people, irrespective of their religious affiliations. “Tell your enemy and those who do not share the same faith with you ‘I love you’ with all your heart”.

TESTIMONIES

LOST TO LUST; DELIVERED BY THE PROPHETIC WORD

   Her life had been like a rubbish heap infested with maggots. An evil which manifested as a dog had bitten her left buttock in a dream. As she grappled with the strangeness of that dream, the same dog-spirit returned in another dream to have sex with her. That singular episode marked the genesis of her problems. Miss Nyasha Kausi’s life became a playground for the evil spirit which ensured that nothing good came her way. The young Zimbabwean studying for a PhD in South Africa lost focus while her entire psyche was ravaged by the spirit of lust.MISS NYASHIA KAUSI.jpg  She would spend time browsing the internet for dating opportunities with all sorts of men. Her unholy flirtations with those men disrupted her plans. She lost concentration and focus on her educational pursuits. The grand plot of the evil spirit was to truncate her glorious future but she ignorantly thought she was enjoying the sweet things of life. Like an ill-fated vehicle destined for destruction, the spirit of lust drove her into so many illicit affairs with men. All the pastors that knew her problem only knew for knowing sake; they could not offer any solution.

It was at The SCOAN that the malevolent spirit was arrested, bound and cast out of her life. Ministering prophecy during a Sunday service, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua beckoned on her with the following prophetic revelations: “You had an encounter with a dog in the dream. After that affair with the dog – you are loose. Sometimes when it comes upon you, you cannot reason well. This has destroyed you. Because of that, you cannot have a home. Lust for men without limits. You are not satisfied.” Confirming the prophetic words to be true for her life, Miss Nyasha Kausi fell under the influence of the Holy Spirit as the man of God laid hands on her. She was swept off her feet and landed on the floor as the power of God retrieved her soul from the hands of the evil spirit.

During her testimony, she revealed that she now enjoys inner peace. She no longer dreams about that evil dog and has developed a remarkable dislike for anything related to dating through social media. Pledging to pursue her educational aspirations with renewed zeal, she advised viewers all over the world in the following words: “If the God of Prophet T.B Joshua did it for me, He will do it for you. Just have faith!”

 THE MORNING WATER EXTINGUISHES DANGER

 If not for God’s intervention, Mr Nosakhare’s gas-laden truck would have annihilated an entire community in Edo State, Nigeria. The businessman-politician was expecting his truck to arrive in Benin, having been loaded with thirty-five thousand litres of LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas). As the truck arrived in Benin at about 10pm, workers in his gas station had wanted to offload the product but he insisted they should wait until the next day. As he waited for the offloading of the truck, a call came in informing him that one of his trucks that had gone to Enugu almost got burnt on its way back to Benin. MR NOSAKA & BROTHER

Some hours later, another call came in, informing him that the gas-laden truck waiting to be offloaded had leaked and was posing an environmental danger as the entire vicinity had been polluted by gas. The implication was that any spark of fire would cause a serious conflagration that would have led to a colossal loss of lives and property. As the unpalatable news came in, he remembered his Morning Water amid a frenzy of panicky moves all around his house. Picking up the Morning Water, he faced the direction of his gas station and ministered it, calling on God to take control of everything.

When he eventually got to the gas station, he discovered that despite the heavy leakage of gas into the atmosphere, vehicles were still moving without any problem. The whole scenario looked incredible to him because it was strange to have such a heavy leakage of gas without fire outbreak. But deep down in his heart, Mr Nosakhare knew that the power of God in the Morning Water had arrested the situation. Thanking God for saving him and the entire community from an incident that would have been too gruesome to cope with, he urged people all over the world to believe in God.

STRANGE WIND

 Though he was not born with it, the disgraceful spirit of epilepsy suddenly went for the jugular in Henry Cleveland’s life. It was a long, sad story. The first encounter he had with that nasty spirit was during a church service several years ago after he had given his life to Christ. That day, a guest pastor was invited to speak in his local church. When the event was about to begin, out of the blue, a strange wind hit him to the ground and sent him into a coma. Henry was later rushed to the hospital where doctors ended up not diagnosing anything. The yoke of epilepsy kept dealing him disgraceful blows beyond the comprehension of both orthodox and traditional medicine.

 MR HENRY CLEVELANDAs he laboured with the yoke, he spent his meagre resources trying to find a solution. Friends and family deserted him and left an indelible scar of stigmatisation on his psyche. The young Ghanaian who later enrolled into university could not attend his lectures regularly for the fear of sudden attacks. A friend would later introduce him to Emmanuel TV, knowing that his problem was a spiritual attack rather than a physical one. Eventually, he visited The SCOAN this year and was able to receive the anointed touch of Jesus through prayer from Prophet T.B. Joshua. According to the young man, it was just a touch from the man of God that sent him to the ground. Since that encounter with the man of God, the spirit of epilepsy left his life for good. Recalling how the yoke had deprived him of a major breakthrough (a banking job), he thanked God for healing him permanently. These were his words of advice to people all over the world: “The situation you are in is to refine you. Keep your focus and don’t give up on God. Believe in God.”

HE NEVER KNEW GOD WOULD HONOUR HIM THIS WAY

PASTOR NATHANIEL OLUBIYITwenty years ago, Mr Nathaniel Olubiyi had an encounter with Prophet T.B. Joshua. He had attended The SCOAN service in which the man of God had asked all those who desired having a car to raise any key in their hands. Obeying the instruction, Mr Olubiyi raised a key in faith. By the next day, when he resumed at his work place, he was approached by his boss who confirmed his redeployment to the Sales and Marketing department from the Administrative department as a Product Sales Manager. That same day, he was given cash to buy a car. Three weeks after he bought his first car, he was sent to the United States of America for a training course. Today, Mr Olubiyi is a pastor based in the United Kingdom. He encountered many challenges, including issues with the UK immigration at the Heathrow Airport. After that experience, he returned to Nigeria and made efforts to sort out his papers. He came to The SCOAN and received the Good Morning Stickers and the Morning Water. As he applied for his residence permit, he ministered the Morning Water and sent it to Abuja. By the time the UK High Commission would respond to his application, the documents they sent to him were incomplete. After several unsuccessful attempts, he was finally granted a month’s visa. By the time he received the visa, he had barely four days to travel to the UK before the visa would expire.

Landing in London with great faith, he was referred to a local post office where he was given his Residency Card which enables him and his family to stay and work in the UK. The next challenge was seeking for employment. After several failed efforts, some wealthy investors with interests in real estate contacted him and made him their representative in the whole of Africa. His status improved dramatically. He interfaces with state governments and is even in the process of meeting the Nigerian President. He is entitled to travel on business class with his wife anytime he so wishes.

Affirming the efficacy of the Morning Water as a miraculous medium of God’s power while testifying before the congregation, he confirmed, as a matter of fact, the authenticity of Prophet T.B. Joshua as a true man of God. According to him, he never knew God would honour him this way. He advised people all over the world to continue to have faith and wait on the Lord as He would surely bless them, no matter how long it may take.

HIS SPIRIT WIFE COULD NOT STAND THE POWER FROM ABOVE

His case could be described as a pastoral misadventure. He had tried to deliver a female course mate in school only for a spirit to come out of her and enter him. Since that day, his life had not remained the same. He would always encounter the spirit wife in his dreams. The evil spirit wreaked so much havoc in his life. She infected him with a spiritual malady – the spirit of lust. All through his university days, he lived a very randy life and would not spare anything on skirt. Linking his problem to his family background, Pastor Wisdom recounted how his grandfather’s fetish engagements laid the foundation for the family’s reputation for idolatry. His father also soiled his hands in fetish activities. He would retrieve food items sacrificed to the river goddess and share for his children to eat. At age 10, Wisdom was already having sexual intercourse. By the time he entered secondary school, he had impregnated two different girls.PASTOR WISDOM OKPOHO AND WIFEIn the university, he had a lot of scandalous affairs with women even when he claimed he was on evangelism. The more he had sex in the dream, the more his problem of lust became worse. Even when he became a minister, the spirit wife would not let go of him. Every effort he made to ward off the wicked spirit proved abortive. He visited many prophets and even spiritualists yet the problems remained. At a time, things started falling apart in his life both materially and spiritually. He even accused his wife of being behind his problem. The spirit wife ensured that there was no affection in their marriage.

He had slept with many female members of his ministry to the extent that he lost respect and also lost many of his members. His life was recklessly remote-controlled by the spirit wife until he visited The SCOAN penultimate Sunday where he was fished out by the man of God through prophecy. Seated in the auditorium, the prophecy of the man of God pulled him out from the congregation. “My brother, there is a minister of God. You have so much attack – spiritual wife… You put on a black suit; light in complexion. Your ministry has been destroyed.” Confirming the prophecy, Pastor Wisdom Okpoho was delivered immediately by the man of God.

Testifying in company of his wife, he expressed gratitude to God for putting an end to his nightmarish experiences in the hands of the spirit wife who almost ruined his life with the spirit of lust. His wife also thanked God for restoring her marriage which was at the brink of collapse as at the time her husband visited The SCOAN. Pastor Wisdom Okpoho advised men of God who are still struggling with their ministries to seek deliverance.

…AND THE ROBBER’S GUN REFUSED TO FIRE

She never leaves her house without ministering the Morning Water. Mrs Linda Onyekwere was in her office one day and was meditating with her Faith Bracelet in company of her younger brother and some staff when three armed robbers walked in. While two headed to the cash room, one came straight to her, took her phone and demanded for her bag and money. He pointed a locally-made pistol at her forehead. Shocked but still holding on to her Faith bracelet, she continued to stare at the marauder while her brother summoned courage to face him. “In the mighty name of Jesus, the God of T.B. Joshua, drop that gun!” MRS LINDA ONYEKWERE & NEIGHBOURS he shouted at the robber who was trying in vain to pull the trigger. As Mrs Linda’s brother continued to command him to drop the gun, Mrs Linda Onyekwere herself joined in rebuking the robber who suddenly developed cold feet, moving backwards with fear written all over him and eventually falling to the ground.

The unfortunate robber was pounced upon by Mrs Onyekwere’s brother while the gun was retrieved from him. As the other staff who had fallen face down stood up to get a hold on him, he outwitted them and took to his heels, jumping unto a waiting motorcycle which sped off with him. Mrs Onyekwere went into the streets shouting “armed robbers… thieves.” She attracted the attention of neighbours who came out in their numbers.

Testifying in company of her brothers and neighbours, Mrs Onyekwere thanked God for saving her life from the hands of robbers who would have killed her if not for His intervention. According to her, the failure of the trigger was divine intervention. “Say what you believe. What you believe in your heart will happen to you in time,” she advised.

POSSESSED BY A STONE-THROWING SNAKE

MR INNOCENT AKEKE

 Mr Innocent from Edo state stood to glorify God and put the devil to shame. He had been delivered from the spirit of man that had tormented his life and others greatly.

At a young age, Innocent was sent by his parents to buy them something from the local shops. On the way, he was hit on his back with a stone. Upon turning around he saw a snake facing him. He hurriedly continued on his way. On his way back he was at alert and surely he saw the snake again at the same place. This time as he looked he saw the snake was holding a stone with his tail. Once again he was hit by a stone the snake threw at him. When he got home he narrated the encounter with his parents but to his dismay Innocent’s parents didn’t believe him.

That night he had a dream in which he saw the same snake again; this time he was playing with the snake in the dream. The following morning he was a different man. He began to have feelings, a sexual desire towards men. The urge became so intense that he began to engage in the act. It pushed him to do many things: travelling to meet men and sleeping with young boys. He would meet men through social media. He would connect with people online; once he engaged with someone, he would do all to make sure he satisfied the spirit of man in him. Through all his promiscuity, he became ill and tested positive to HIV. Despite the deadly disease he continued sleeping with men, further spreading the HIV.

He tried to get out of this life, but things became worse. One day, he went to urinate and there he saw diabolical things but still went ahead. That night, he saw vultures in his room and they entered his body. He then followed them into a tree. The spirit of vulture increased the promiscuity in his life – he started to have intercourse with animals. It started with a lizard that became human size in his room. After that he could use any means to satisfy his desire sleeping with chickens and goats, as the evil spirit would direct him. He noticed that every animal he would sleep with would later die.

He got a job in a hotel. The manager in the hotel put Emmanuel TV in each room. One day when Prophet T.B. Joshua was praying with the viewers, Innocent felt uncomfortably hot and ran outside. His colleagues were asking him what was wrong; he said he was fine and came back inside. He switched off Emmanuel TV. His colleague found the TV off and turned it back on. When she left, he turned it off again and removed the cable. His colleague saw it off again and began to question him, he made various excuses. As it became clear that Innocent was not comfortable with Emmanuel TV, he was asked to leave his job and go for deliverance. Angrily he left and from that point people began to notice his countenance was not normal. He was trying to resist the questioning but he could not. In annoyance he left his house and got on a bus for Lagos, he decided he was coming to The SCOAN.

During the Mass Prayer session, he felt agitated and the evil spirits in him began to manifest and confess how they had been using and destroying him terribly.

Innocent was delivered that day and every power of darkness left his body. Since then, Innocent said that he has changed drastically. Prior to his deliverance he said that he never regretted any evil act he had engaged in. But after deliverance he feels regret for all he had done. He no longer has affection for men; he sleeps well now and is able to chase any demonic attack away, in the name of Jesus.

MY BED WAS DRY FOR THE FIRST TIME!

 Ukpaka Sochima, a Level 300 Psychology student testified today of complete and total liberation from bedwetting. Right from a young age, this spirit of bedwetting had plagued her life. Pain, discomfort and embarrassment were her constant companions. She had become accustomed to washing her bed sheet and clothes daily because not a night would pass without an unfortunate accident. She was not able to stay in a boarding school due to the stigma attached to the bedwetting.MISS UKPAKA SOCHIMA KAY AND MOTHER

When she enrolled for university, the problem seemed to have stopped for a while. Delighted, Ukpaka opted to stay in a room with four of her peers for the first time. However, the joy was short lived. The very first night, the inevitable occurred and she woke up to loud and angry exclamations from her colleague who was sleeping in the bunk below her. She could hardly bear the shame and embarrassment that erupted as a result.

Ukpaka eventually resorted to sleeping on the floor so as not to mess up the bed. With few friends and low self-esteem, “I felt like committing suicide. I wanted to end it all because I could not imagine myself telling people that I was bedwetting. Many times, I attempted to do it.” With little hope for future happiness, she stated: “I concluded that I would never get married because no man would accept me with that situation.”

Her mother was her only confidant. Ukpaka confessed to her that she wanted to end her life but she continued to encourage her daughter not to give up, making sure that she was never left alone.

After several visits to hospitals yielded no solution, and all hope had been exhausted, Ukpaka decided to visit The SCOAN in desperate search of deliverance.

Towards the end of the service in the mass Prayer, Prophet T.B. Joshua pointed towards the crowd. “There is a young lady there sitting behind the lady with spectacles. You have the problem of bedwetting.” At first, Ukpaka did not realise that the prophecy was for her. She was looking around to see who would come out to confirm the prophecy. Suddenly, she noticed that the lady sitting directly in front of her was wearing spectacles. Convinced that it was her, she came out to confirm the prophetic message.

Instantly, she received her deliverance from the spirit of bedwetting that had tormented her life since birth.

After the prophecy and the deliverance, she decided to take six sachets of water that night. Before sleeping, she meditated with her Faith Bracelet: ‘Take more of me and give me more of You”. In the course of meditating, she fell asleep. To her surprise, it was not until the next morning that she woke up to a dry bed. Since the deliverance, she has been completely free from the scourge of bedwetting. Thanking Jesus with tears streaming down her cheeks, Ukpaka testified to the whole world.

She advised: “Have faith. Run to God. He is the only true Father who never fails.”

“I want to thank you for allowing God to use you to deliver me. I felt as if all hope was lost. I did not want to get close to people before,” she said to the man of God.

Prophet T.B. Joshua used her case to address the viewers all over the world: “When it is your time, when you meet a man God has sent to you, whether you believe or not, it will definitely happen. Your unbelief may not be able to give you grace to maintain that blessing but you will receive that blessing.”

KNOWING GOD’S WILL

PROPHET T.B JOSHUA

Prophet T.B. Joshua

The Holy Spirit moved strongly as the entire atmosphere radiated the unfading glory of God. The SCOAN Sunday service of May 22, 2016, reminded people all over the world that, where two or three are gathered in His name, He is always there with them.

 

The man of God, in his message, dwelt on a variety of issues relating to our relationship with God. Above all, he focused on the need to know the will of God in every situation, especially before prayer. He spoke extensively on the principles of belief as well as our disposition to the will of God. “Believing is simply acting on what God has spoken,” he said, stressing that our belief becomes solid if we base it on God’s promises. In other words, believing God on His promises to us makes our faith and trust in Him stronger: “If your Father has promised you something and you base your belief on that, this believing is solid.”

Speaking further, Prophet T.B. Joshua explained the reason we need to know God’s will and act in accordance with it. He stated that those who commanded things to happen through God’s power are people who already knew that God will answer them. However, he lamented man’s fall from the true sense of believing due to his selfish reasoning that measures God’s love for him according to prayers answered – “Today, you don’t know whether you are a man of faith or not. You measure how God loves you according to the prayer that is answered.”

Prophet T.B. Joshua then took time to prophesy to individuals in the congregation, opening their eyes to the hidden traps set against their destinies by the kingdom of darkness.

EVANGELIST CINDY

Evangelist Cindy

In her message NO SHORTCUT, Evangelist Cindy encouraged Christians to be patient and persevering in the race of life, stressing that the road to glory is not paved with milk and honey but rather is a long and muddy one. She aptly captured the psyche of a faithless generation which would aim for the top without wanting to start from the bottom. But she insists that the attainment of glory is a process which she compared to the baking process. “What are you going through? Many successful people in society had once passed through similar situations before they were promoted to the level they are now. Successful people don’t just drift to the top. It takes focused action, personal discipline and a lot of energy everyday to make things happen. Ask David, he will tell you about his opposition. Ask Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and they will tell you what they had to pass through before coming to a new level of life.” Calling on Christians to always see unpleasant situations as signifiers of impending glory, she urged them to thank God in every situation: “When you look at your situation, it is a signal that something greater is coming. When you know where God is leading you or when you know where you are going, whatever happens to you midway cannot change your focus. Rather, you will begin to describe the taste of honey while swallowing tears. When the goings are good, thank God; when the goings are tough, thank God. When you get there at God’s time, you will begin to sing, I didn’t know You would favour me this way”.

TESTIMONIES

SPONDYLOSIS STRAIGHTENED AND SWELLING DEFLATED
MISS VIVIAN AHIAKPAFor twelve years, Miss Vivian Ahiakpa found it very difficult to work due to a strange ailment that got her legs swollen while pain took over her entire body. She could not walk on her own and had to depend on the support of people. At a time, she had to use a crutch. Doctors had to give her a body brace, saying she had sustained damage to her bones and therefore could not do things without support. However, respite soon came her way when a friend gave her the Morning Water. As she ministered the Morning Water, she discovered that the swelling of her legs reduced gradually in confirmation that the power of God was at work.

Having been encouraged by the effects of the Morning Water on her hitherto swollen legs, Miss Ahiakpa visited The SCOAN in 2014 and was arranged for the Prayer Line. Narrating her experience at the Prayer Line, she recalled: “When the man of God was coming closer to me, I saw him like a normal human being at first but before he reached me, what I saw was a very tall flame of fire.” She explained how she felt that fire had penetrated through her head and down her injured back. Afterwards, describing a very cool sensation and being free to walk and move again.

Walking happily before the congregation, Miss Ahiakpa showed no sign of difficulty in walking anymore. According to her, she now does all those things which she could not do before. Even her doctors marvelled at the miracle and even encouraged her to share her testimony. Bending, turning and shaking her body with ease and renewed strength, it was obvious that the beast that had held her down had been crushed by the power of the Holy Ghost. She expressed immense gratitude to God for her healing and advised people all over the world in the following words: “Have faith and trust in God.

 LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT RESTORED!
DR AND MRS TIMOTHY MMELLADr Timothy Mmella, a high-level international diplomat and former representative of Kenya to the United Nations on matters of Environment, struggled with affection in his marriage. It was extremely difficult to express his feelings. The passionate fire of love that had been the driving force of their marriage suddenly fizzled out. Unknown to the couple, an evil spirit was in between them working hard to truncate their union. The wicked but unseen man ensured that he made the couple unable to demonstrate love to each other. Whenever it was time to get romantic, Mrs Mmella would either fall sick or complain of one form of discomfort or the other.

Due to the unseen barriers hindering their marriage, the couple lived like two souls apart to the extent that Dr Mmella, out of starvation for affection, began to lust after other women. Haunted by their inability to bear a child after several years of marriage, the couple were not happy and could not fathom the reason for the distance growing between them. It soon dawned on the couple that their spiritual problem required a spiritual solution. It was their visit to The SCOAN that finally exposed the root cause of their problem.

While prophesying and ministering deliverance to the congregation, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua walked up to the couple with the following revelation, that a spiritual husband was the cause of their marital woes and had also pushed Dr Mmella to go outside of his marriage to look for affection. Yet, no matter how far the couple had drifted, they were not beyond God’s reach, whose promise for the couple was that they would have a baby boy. The man of God laid hands on them, setting them free from the influence of the strange man.DR AND MRS TIMOTHY MMELLA.

The couple thanked God for resurrecting the affection that had died in their marriage. In the words of Dr Mmella: “I thank God for my wife who introduced me to God through Emmanuel TV.” He advised congregants and people all over the world, Dr Mmella said, “There is nothing you gain by isolating the mighty God from your destiny.”

SEVEN YEARS OF STRUGGLE SUDDENLY STOPPED

As an immigration officer, promotion to her next rank of Chief Superintendent remainedMRS ELIZABETH BETTY ADUDU elusive for seven years. After three promotion interviews, Mrs Elizabeth Betty Adudu remained stuck on the rank of Superintendent. The Abuja based officer did not give up; she kept hope alive, trying out every opportunity that presented itself for her promotion. That persevering spirit soon paid off.

Another promotion opportunity presented itself and Mrs Adudu prepared herself with prayers. The hotel she lodged in had Emmanuel TV and provided a superior opportunity for her to settle the battle spiritually before stepping out for the physical interview. She wasted no time in praying along with the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, committing the interview into God’s hands and calling on the Holy Spirit to make her promotion a success. All through the night preceding the interview day, Mrs Adudu never opened any book to read. Instead, she committed herself to prayer, believing that God’s effort, rather than hers, would put an end to her seven years of struggle.

On the morning of the interview, she radiated a strange air of confidence which could have been only divinely inspired. She went into the interview with that confidence and gave an exceptional account of her achievements. When the results were released, despite the erroneous information she had earlier received, her name was on the list of successful officers promoted to the rank of Chief Superintendent of Immigration. Mrs Adudu told congregants that it was purely a manifestation of God’s power and grace in her life. According to her, all the while she had been depending on her human strength, knowledge and might, yet could not make it. As soon as she involved God in the matter, her case was settled. “It is not by power or might but by the special grace of God,” she said as she reminded people all over the world that distance is not a barrier to God’s blessings.

I WAS HANDICAPPED, NOW I AM HEALED!
MADAME LE GOFF AMINATA DADU
Madame Le Goff Aminata Dadu was diagnosed with a childbirth-related deformity after she had complained of pains. For the Malian living in France, life lost its meaning when doctors told her that the condition was incurable. That submission affected her both psychologically and socially and condemned her to the use of pain killers. Her knees and shoulders were affected to the extent that her doctors suggested they would infuse iron to support those weak joints. She became handicapped and could hardly walk, prompting the social security department to give her a card that allowed her access to certain services because of her problem. She attained a job allocated by the French government specifically reserved for those who are handicapped, as she could neither walk nor use her hands effectively.

One day, she encountered Emmanuel TV and marvelled at the miracles God used His Prophet to perform at The SCOAN. Convinced in her heart that God was truly at work at The SCOAN, she decided to visit Nigeria. As she arrived at the Arena of Liberty, she was placed in the Prayer Line where she received God’s mercy. Displaying medical documents which showed how degenerated and terrible her condition was, she thanked God for her healing. “Jesus is the answer; the only answer,” she told congregants and people watching her all over the world as she exuded the joy of her freedom from sickness and sorrow.
