Aside from the regular powerful prayer time that characterizes a typical SCOAN Sunday service, Sunday, December 13, 2015 was filled with testimonies, praises and biblical lessons that pointed to the urgency of man’s need to connect with God through repentance. Urging the congregants to pursue Christ’s pattern of doing things, Evangelist Anu, in her message tagged EVANGELIST ANU (2)CHRIST’S STANDARD OF BELIEF, emphasized the need for all Christians to look beyond their present circumstances. This would enable them to attune to the frequency of unflinching faith in God’s assurance of a glorious future for them. She admonished all not to allow their present circumstances to mislead them and urged them to operate within Christ’s standard of belief, saying: “When you have Christ’s standard of belief, what you see, what you hear and what your circumstances look like cannot affect it…People of God, see beyond your present situation no matter how unpleasant it is. If your belief cannot see beyond the position you occupy now, how can you see beyond when you become a leader? If you cannot serve God as a follower, you will not be able to serve Him as a leader because that position will dictate your direction”.




Mr Linus Azombire, a civil servant from Ghana, was never a happy man. He was frustrated because all his juniors inexplicably overtook him in the promotion hierarchy at his work place. For fifteen long years, he laboured in vain to see his promotion come true. Even when he was informed of a promotion, that glimmer of joy was short-lived as the promotion was revoked. He almost suffered a heart attack but for his caring wife who advised him to visit The SCOAN, the arena of liberty. Thinking about his children’s school fees and the burden of feeding them and paying the many bills of a family man, he heeded his wife’s advice and came to The SCOAN.MR LINUS AZOMBIRE [PROMOTION &BREAKTHROUGH]

When he visited The SCOAN and received the Morning Water, Mr Azombire was optimistic that God would wipe away the tears from his eyes. True to his yearning, after ministering the Morning Water with his wife back home in Ghana, the unexpected happened! Though, there was humanly no vacancy for him to fill, within four days of ministering the Morning Water, he was called by his boss and informed of his unlikely promotion to a position even higher than he ever envisaged. Today, Mr Azombire heads an entire municipal in his professional civil service career. The new position has undoubtedly drowned all sad developments that shrouded his past in tears and anguish. To God alone be the glory, the man whose appointment as district Financial Officer was once revoked, now occupies a bigger position of grace and favour which can only be from God. He thanked God for his indescribable promotion and advised people all over the world to rely on God and eschew the wrong attitude of doubting His marvellous works through His servant, Prophet T.B. Joshua.



For ten years, Mrs Agnes Gyadu, a Ghanaian working with the Ghana Revenues Authority (Customs Division), waited for her promotion in vain. Having served the organization for 27 years, it dawned on her that something was amiss with her quest to move up the career ladder. Bent on seeking the face of God concerning her situation, she ran down to The SCOAN in 2012, to tap from the ever-flowing anointing that breaks all yokes. Receiving prayers from the man of God, Mrs Gyadu also went back to Ghana with the Morning Water and Good Morning Stickers. As she went on her knees with those anointed materials amidst fervent prayers, her past was declared over by the Spirit of The Most High God. Within one month, she was sent on a promotion course.MRS GYADU AGNES GLORIA [DOUBLE PROMOTION]

By 2014, she had received two promotions with a courtesy car to ease her transportation challenges. Indeed, the disappointing barriers that kept God’s glory at bay in her life have been arrested by the power of the Holy Spirit present in the Morning Water. Enjoying improved finances and inestimable peace of mind, Mrs Gyadu would not hide her unalloyed appreciation of God’s intervention in her case through the Morning Water.



They had visited many hospitals and had stocked their home with different herbs from traditional medicine practitioners, yet the problem of barrenness and infertility would not move an inch out of their lives. While her husband was diagnosed with low sperm count, she was told she had fibroids. Since 2005, the couple ran helter-skelter looking for a solution where there was actually none. Mr and Mrs Malasha Kayawe suffered untold pain and were socially aloof as they could not mix freely with people whom God had blessed with the fruit of the womb; they withdrew themselves from social interaction to avoid being mocked for their inability to bear a child.

As they laboured under the yoke of barrenness, a discerning friend, who understood the spiritual dimension of their challenge, introduced them to Emmanuel TV. Installing the mountain-moving channel, the couple gradually came to terms with the awe-inspiring exploits of the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua through the mighty name of Jesus Christ. The Zambian couple, having been convinced that the power of God is working through The SCOAN, took great encouragement from one of Prophet T.B. Joshua’s admonitions that ‘we should not focus on our problems but on God’s sufficiency’.MR &MRS MALASHA KAYAWE [BARRENNESS 8YEARS,LOW SPERM COUNT & FIBROID]

A friend who had visited The SCOAN gave them the Morning Water. After ministering the Morning Water in prayer, Mrs Kayawe soon noticed some changes in her body and was reluctantly prompted to visit the hospital. In spite of the ‘funny’ questions by the doctor, she was told her pregnancy test was positive. Kneeling down and thanking God for the miracle, Mrs Kayawe blessed the name of the Lord for putting a new song in her mouth. After nine months, the Kayawes were blessed with a baby girl, named Jemimah. Mr and Mrs Kayawe also thanked God for their promotions that came as bonuses to the gift of a bundle of joy. Clutching their amiable daughter before the congregation, the couple thanked God for bridging the gap in their lives and urged people to focus on God as only He can see them through all of life’s challenges.



Stubborn and rebellious against the power of God, the twin demons of a strong man and a spirit wife had spoken through the man, vowing never to be defeated as an evangelist ministered the Morning Water on him. But they were all jesters, because there was no how the anointing that broke the yoke of the enemy could give in to the arrogant ranting of squatting evil spirits who have since been served quit notice and who have only come to steal, to kill and to destroy. Engineer Callistus Ezike, lecturer in Cyber Crime and Criminal Justice at the Kaduna State University, Nigeria, traced his problem to his ancestry. From his mother’s investigation, he had incarnated his grandfather who was a famous native doctor. As he grew up, he discovered a kola nut tree that consumed the soul of anyone who tried to cut it down. To his surprise, one of his distant uncles was opposed to the felling of that notorious kola nut tree. That uncle’s daughter, who was in her twenties, would later lure him to have sex with her when he was barely seven years old. Mr Ezike would go on to eat and have sex in his dreams from that day.ENGINEER CALISTUS EZIKE [DELIVERD FROM EVIL SPIRIT]

While working with former Intercontinental Bank (now Access Bank), he was framed by a lady who accused him of trying to have an affair with her over a challenge she had with her account. He eventually lost his job after that saga and opted for private business. His new business would later crash after a series of strange occurrences including encounters with two fighting birds and a snake creeping over his feet while in a hotel room. Even when he changed his hotel room, a strange light appeared to him. When he later became a lecturer, his life nosedived spiritually as he had affairs with married women and aborted a pregnancy for one of them. Through his mother’s best friend, he was initiated into fetish activities, including Indian temple worship and eventually joined the notorious Free Masons cult, where he was asked to become a lodge secretary.

Vowing never to abort or date married women again, he prevailed upon a friend’s girlfriend not to abort her pregnancy and took over responsibility of the pregnancy by introducing himself to her parents as the father of the unborn child. He would eventually marry the girl and father a child through her. When he decided to visit The SCOAN, the demonic torment became worse even to the extent that the Emmanuel TV channel in his house stopped showing. He decided to embark on a nine-day prayer and fasting programme. Visiting The SCOAN after the prayer and fasting session, he was delivered during the Morning Water ministration. Though the spirits that tormented his life tried to thwart his deliverance, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua sent a message to the evangelist to step on one of his feet. As soon as that was done, the demon-possessed young man fell to the ground like an uprooted tree.

Thanking God for his deliverance, Mr Ezike expressed great joy in his new life devoid of the evil and detestable dream experiences of eating and having sex. He confessed the salvation of his once imprisoned soul and urged people to run to God in times of trouble.



After 37 years of meritorious service to her country as a nurse, Mrs Alice Kafula retired into illness and could not really enjoy the freedom of a well-deserved retirement. Upon medical investigation, it was discovered she had degenerative bone disease that affected her spine and led to a neck-bone fracture that made walking a very huge challenge. Mrs Kafula resigned to taking different analgesics for 13 years without any improvement. Each passing day, the sad reality of having to live with the debilitating condition dawned on her. She would manage to walk, bending as if a two hundred kilogram bag of cement was strapped to her back. By that time, she looked tens of years above her real age.

Fed up with taking medication, Mrs Kafula jettisoned the idea of swallowing those tablets and decided to connect with God through Emmanuel TV on the prompting of her daughter. Watching Emmanuel TV soon proved to be the great spiritual boost she needed to build her faith. She eventually fell in love with the power of God on display at The SCOAN via Emmanuel TV. The plethora of testimonies that she watched on the channel cemented her faith in God and inspired her subsequent journey to Nigeria.

Sponsored by her daughter, Mrs Kafula came down to The SCOAN and vowed never to sleep until her situation was turned around by God. True to her decision, she received her healing at the Prayer Line after the man of God laid hands on her. Describing the experience with undiluted elation before the congregation, the Zambian national said she felt something like a thunderbolt as soon as the man of God touched her head. According to her, the relief that came after that experience was instant as she got on her feet and walked freely for the first time in 13 years.MRS ALICE KAFULA [HEALED OF FRACTURE OF THE SPINE] (2)

Returning to Zambia with the Morning Water which she ministered incessantly, Mrs Kafula who had borrowed money from people settled all her debt and even got a job in retirement. Aside the pension she received, the new job paid her in dollars and continued to add more benefits to her life. Expressing her heart-felt gratitude to God for restoring her ailing health and giving her a job in the midst of retirement, Mrs Kafula sang praises to His name and urged people to stick to Jesus whenever they had problems.


Digesting the food for thought backed up by scriptural examples in Evangelist Frank’s message, the congregation prepared themselves for a new and better kind of warfare. They realised that it was vanity fighting their fellow humans along tribal and racial lines and therefore forged a united front to confront the common enemy – satan! By the energetic and passionate natures of their prayers as well as the choir’s unrelenting zeal to reel out marshal songs against the kingdom of darkness, it was apparent that they could not afford to fight the wrong battle. On Sunday December 6, 2015, The SCOAN service witnessed continued victory of the kingdom of light over the kingdom of darkness, as those held in captivities were set free in the name of Jesus Christ.  The victorious congregants had earlier received inspiring words from EVANGELIST FRANK

Evangelist Frank in his message tiled DON’T FIGHT THE WRONG BATTLE. He had admonished: People of God, let me tell you something. You might be able to outsmart some people, you might be nice with your hands and quick on your toes but you do not have enough physical or mental strength to stop satan. You, by yourself, cannot stand against the clever attack of satan. You can only stop satan by the strength of the Lord. You can only stop satan to the degree that you are protected with the whole armour of God. Listen, as long as you recognize the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, then satan has nothing on you”.




For Chrissy Banda life unleashed its harsh realities on her at the tender age of 16 after she had lost both of her parents and was left with the herculean task of seeing her younger siblings through school. Determined, she started work and ensured that her siblings’ upkeep and school fees were paid as at when due. The Malawian national would soon be faced with another challenge that tended to discourage her from keeping her positive mental attitude. As a research nurse, promotion seemed to elude her forever. For eight years, she was on the same level and was almost made to feel less important. While she faced this challenge, things began to get worse at home as her meagre income could not take care of all the responsibilities left behind by her late parents.

But after praying with the man of God via Emmanuel TV, the dawn of a new and prosperous era soon came. She would later dream of the man of God praying for her while she manifested. When she woke up from sleep, she felt light and had the premonition of coming joy. Soon after that dream, she got promotion from her work place and is now a National Research Co-ordinator. She has travelled to different countries and has acquired three vehicles. She is also building her own house to the glory of God. All but one of her siblings have since graduated from the university and are now working while the youngest is on the verge of completing his university education. Ms Banda, grateful to God for His loving-kindness, advised people all over the world to always run to God as He never rejects anyone, irrespective of the level of the person’s problems.



Mr Oluwole Blaise started smoking cigarette from his secondary school days.  That fact that his secondary school was located in a university campus gave him the impetus to feel high and larger than life. Initially, he experimented with three sticks per day but later graduated to one packet daily. He eventually developed a horrible dependence on the substance and could not do anything without smoking. He also spent a fortune on perfumes as he thought their fragrances would neutralise the offensive odour of cigarettes. The young Lagosian could not give up on the bad habit even when he became an usher with his local church. Several prayer and fasting programmes organised by his pastor could not yield any permanent result. His inability to conquer the yoke soon became a burden on him. Considering the economic and health implications of his smoking, he pondered on a way out.

Luckily in 2013, a friend with whom he was planning to travel soon changed the story of his battle with cigarette smoking. Stumbling on The Mirror (a book written by Prophet T.B. Joshua) from his friend’s bag, he had prayed to God, using some of the prayer points in the book alongside some bible scriptures to ask for help concerning his smoking problem. Whilst reading, he felt a heavy burden lift from his shoulders and a cool sensation within him. From that point forward, the yoke of smoking was broken forever! Even when he tried to light a stick the night after first reading The Mirror, he collapsed and fainted. Since that day in April, 2013 till date, the 28 year-old yoke of smoking was crushed by Jesus Christ who used The Mirror to break the addiction. Mr Oluwole Blaise, advised people to always place a demand on the anointing by connecting with anything that came from The SCOAN, even the books written by Prophet T.B. Joshua!


BUSISIWE MNISI AND SON {DELIVERED FROM DRUNKENESS}If anything like that ever existed, Mr Vincent Mnisi would have since been inducted into the drunkards’ hall of fame. The young South African was severely hooked on alcohol. He would drink and smoke recklessly to the extent that he once lost his mind and had to be taken to a mental hospital. His mother who resided in the UK did not find it funny as she made frantic efforts to ensure that her son’s condition improved. Taking him to the UK, she had thought he would change but she soon realised his drinking malady worsened. He would drink and sleep on the streets of England only to be picked up to safety by government agencies which were saddled with the responsibility of catering for the so-called ‘homeless’. His access to government loan also fuelled his appetite for more alcohol and contributed immensely to his misdemeanours in the UK.

Due to his addiction, he remained unkempt and would take no bath for days. He would sometimes attack his mother after downing some alcohol, asking her to give him some money in furtherance of his alcoholic activities. Whenever she confronted him with the urgency of his need for Jesus, he would reply by telling her that he expects both Jesus and His Father to visit him because his case had gone out of hand. The place he called his house was an eyesore; it was always littered with empty bottles of alcohol and cigarette ash. The devil had indeed turned him into an alcoholic robot manoeuvred at will to destroy his very self.

While the battle between the forces of good and evil raged on in his life, his mother through some ‘divine’ mistake came across Prophet T.B. Joshua and The SCOAN on the internet. Impressed and encouraged by the life-changing miracles that take place on Emmanuel TV, she soon made up her mind to visit Nigeria. She prayed over the journey and God ministered to her through the scriptures assuring her that He would be with her till the very end. That assurance was confirmed when she was cleared at the airport even though she did not have the Yellow Fever Certificate, a necessary document for travellers from Europe coming to West Africa.

On getting to The SCOAN, she received the Morning Water and continued to minister it in prayer concerning her son’s problem. As she battled to save Vincent’s life from the ravages of alcohol, she received another call informing her of her younger son’s blindness. As she continued to minister the Morning Water on his pictures, she received news that he had regained his sight. When she returned to the UK, Vincent asked to have the Morning Water, after his mother had ministered some into his mouth. Having consented to his request, Vincent continued to minister the Morning Water and suddenly stopped drinking. Having been arrested by the anointing in the Morning Water, old things passed away and behold, all things became new. Gathering the bits and pieces of a once shattered life, the young man went back to school to complete his bachelor’s degree and has since graduated to the shock of many who had written him off as an incurable liquor monger. Mr Vincent is today a hardworking advertising practitioner who takes care of his mother, a woman, whose heart he had once pierced with anguish and despair. His story shows that broken things are useful in the hands of God. Thanking God for her son’s deliverance, Mrs Mnisi advised parents not to give up on their children and urged people to find out God’s plan for their lives.




Miss Mary Gabriel was under the influence of a spirit husband which tormented her life with other spiritual maladies. She had the spirits of anger and lust and had the heart of a lion. Her problems had started right from childhood when she would find herself in the dream having sex with men. She also got married in the dream and continued to manifest violent attitudes in the physical. She once smashed the head of her boyfriend with a bottle and dared the consequences. After that, she had gone ahead to stab him with a knife just because he wanted to know the whereabouts of the things he bought for her in anticipation of her safe delivery when she was eight months pregnant.

After she put to bed, the child died and that seriously affected their relationship. Rising from the pain of losing her first child, she went angry, drinking, smoking, dating and sleeping with different men, including ‘old cargoes’. All efforts to caution her fell on deaf ears and resulted in bloody ends. On one occasion, she stabbed her sister with scissors and had to be tied to the ground by the entire family to save the situation. She had a track record in stabbing people and was always happy to see blood on her ‘enemies’. She had broken many homes by her sexual escapades. Any man she slept with would always want to have more of her. She also had a knack to woo younger men to satiate her reckless sexual appetite. Facebook was one of her catchment areas.

A night to her deliverance, she had sex with a man she had met on her way to Lagos. That Sunday morning while the service was going on, Evangelist Justin went round ministering the Morning Water in Jesus’ name. As soon as the Morning Water touched her, she began to manifest the spirit husband that had held her life hostage for so many years. “I am the spirit husband…I have destroyed everything about her…I destroyed her marriage… I caused her to go out with different men since childhood”, cried the spirit which was under bombardment from the fire of the Holy Ghost in the Morning Water. Without much resistance, the spirit was cast in the name of Jesus Christ just as Mary crumbled to the ground. Coming back for her testimony, in company of her parents and sister, she thanked God for giving her a new life devoid of all the bad and aggressive attitudes that made her a terror to many. She now enjoys a breath of fresh air unpolluted by demonic forces. Speaking on behalf of the family, Mrs Gabriel (Mary’s mother) advised parents to trust in God and draw their children closer to Him.



Their mother, in dire need of fruit of the womb, had gone to the river to consult with spirits to give her a child. Then in her fifties, her request was eventually granted as she went on to deliver a set of female twins. Dedicating them to the river spirits, their parents gave them traditional names that reflected their relationship with the river. Both girls grew up worshipping the river spirits. They would find themselves in dreams eating strange food and having sex with men in the river. While Blessing proceeded to Europe to practice prostitution, Franca on her own part, became a herbalist of sort; she would prescribe traditional solutions to people’s problems much to the surprise of her own mother. It was clear that her ability to proffer solutions to people’s problems was borne out of her romance with familiar spirits which controlled and influenced her being.

While in Europe, Blessing continued to sustain the relationship they both had with the river spirits by sending money to her sister to ensure that all the rituals involved were observed accordingly. But in spite of all the goodies doled out to the river spirits, all the twin sisters could achieve were nothing short of sorrow, tears and disappointments. Keeping a stable relationship with men was not possible. Most of the men that came their ways would eventually dump them for no justifiable reasons. Blessing’s sojourn abroad was strewn in tales of despair. From Austria to Spain and from Spain to Finland, she could not lay her hands on anything tangible apart from the shame and disrepute that came with international prostitution. All efforts to put a stop to the illicit trade proved abortive.

When she discovered that there was no real and lasting gain in prostitution after twelve years in the trade, she succumbed to her boyfriend’s advice to return to Nigeria and undergo deliverance at The SCOAN. Returning home, Blessing met her twin sister stranded in marriage as her husband had deserted her. The spate of broken relationships, disappointments and failures stared them in the face and necessitated their action to proceed to the Arena of Liberty for deliverance. Franca was the first to be delivered during ministration of the Morning Water in the thick of a Sunday service; even though she had tried to run away, she was arrested by the power of God in the Morning Water and was delivered from the influence of the marine world. Blessing did not find it funny and insisted on getting her own deliverance by all means. She felt it was a wasted effort if she could come all the way from Europe and not receive her deliverance.

Availing herself the opportunity of another Sunday service, Blessing prepared her mind and looked forward, with every sense of urgency, to her deliverance. Fortunately for her, Evangelist Chris located her and ministered the Morning Water to her. Without any form of resistance, the spirit manifested and confessed all it had done to her life – how it had afflicted her with broken relationships, disappointments, the yoke of prostitution and failure. Now new persons in Christ Jesus, Blessing Isabu and her twin sister, thanked God for transforming their lives through deliverance and wiping away their horrible pasts. They advised people to desist from travelling to Europe for prostitution and urged parents to stop putting pressure on their children because of money.



Mr and Mrs Badohu from Ghana were desperately in need of a child. But medical realities pointed to the fact that it was humanly and naturally impossible for them to have a child. While Mr Badohu was having low sperm count, his wife had tubal blockage. All attempts to get superior medical attention yielded no result. Meeting a gynaecologist who incidentally is an Emmanuel TV partner, they were advised to seek the face of God. Their 7 years of wandering in search of solution where there was none soon ended when they visited The SCOAN.

At The SCOAN, they received the Morning Water and afterwards returned to their country. Ministering the Morning Water with faith amid prayers, God stepped in. One night after ministering the Morning Water, Mr Badohu dreamt of his wife being operated on by a man in white robes just as Prophet T.B. Joshua appeared telling him about the operation.  In that dream, he saw his wife’s womb outside while a child was being placed inside it. Prophet T.B. Joshua later told him that his wife would deliver a baby girl.

After the dream, he woke up and narrated the dream to his wife. Two months later, after visiting the laboratory for test, his wife was confirmed pregnant. And true to the prophecy of the man of God in that dream, the Badohus were blessed with a baby girl. Radiating so much joy, the couple thanked God for wiping away shame from their faces; they advised people with similar problems to seek God first in every situation.




The SCOAN service of Sunday, November 29, 2015 witnessed the demonstration of God’s power, glory and grace. The praise and worship led by the choir prepared the atmosphere for the Word to sink deep into the hearts of those who were hungry and thirsty for righteousness.EVANG DANIEL In his message titled Positioned For God’s Favour, Evangelist Daniel observed that God’s blessing are not necessarily a reward based on human calculations but rather on grace: “As Christians, it is essential to know that God’s favour upon us is not often measured by our smartness, intelligence, eloquence, strength or hard work but according to His grace because God chooses grace rather than works. This implies that God can choose to favour a rustic, uneducated and inexperienced, tactless shepherd boy and put him in the palace for His glory”. He went on to advise Christians on how to position themselves for God’s favour. He added that they should look into God’s Word for direction and enlightenment: “We position ourselves for God’s favour by looking into the Word and acting upon it. When we take the Word of God to heart and truly make it part of us, it will by its very nature change us. When it does we will find ourselves called to act with God. Then, we are truly positioned for God’s favour”.



The marriage of Mr and Mrs James Ameh was challenged by the pain of barrenness for seven long years. They visited many hospitals all to no avail and after many doctors’ efforts, their problem was finally termed as unexplained infertility. During this struggle of barrenness, Mrs Ameh was afflicted by nightmares as she dreamt of people pursuing her. They discovered Emmanuel TV and one night, instead of the nightmares, she dreamt, seeing the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua praying for her in her dream. Seeing it as a sign from Heaven, she and her husband visited The SCOAN and were placed at the Prayer Line for God’s intervention, after which they were given the Morning Water that they believed would set them apart for God’s favour.


Mr and Mrs James Ameh

They went back home, prayed together and met as husband and wife and continued to minister the Morning Water. Mrs Ameh believed a day like this would come for her to testify to the glory of God and truly to God be the glory, after a few weeks, she became pregnant. People were confused during her pregnancy, thinking that she was only fat but the birth of her bouncing baby boy silenced everyone and  convinced them that the Amehs are serving a living God.

In his own testimony, Mr Ameh explained that he had felt terrible because they could not have a child of their own but now he is happy that he’s a father. He advised that not all problems are natural but rather we are fighting a spiritual battle. Smiling with victory, he said that God had seen them through because they put their trust in Him. Mrs Ameh declared that truly God’s time is the best and prayed that God who did this for them would also answer those facing similar situations in Jesus ‘name.



As fashionable as living in Europe was to Mr Amadi, it could not wipe away that terrible blemish that had haunted his life for too long. Right from his secondary school days in Nigeria, Mr Amadi was under the yoke of bedwetting. The problem became a serious thorn in his flesh to the extent that he lived a somewhat reclusive life in order to avoid exposing his problem to people around.

Even when he left Nigeria to Denmark, the problem continued despite his seeking the best medical advice. In the course of time, Mr Amadi married in Denmark yet out of the shame, he could not tell his wife about the horrible condition. He hid the problem by wrapping himself in a towel and surrounding himself with other absorbent materials as he slept so that any of the urine would be soaked up instantly.


Mr Amadi

This continued for several years until his mother in law came to The SCOAN and received the Morning Water which she gave to Mr Amadi. After watching Emmanuel TV, Mr Amadi’s faith began to grow and he began to faithfully minister the Morning Water he received from his mother in law. During this time, Mr Amadi also had a serious addiction to smoking that he couldn’t break on his own. To his great surprise, after about a month, he realised that he no longer had the urge to smoke and had indeed been set free from this terrible addiction. Furthermore, the embarrassing problem of bedwetting had been solved through the medium of the Morning Water. No longer using towels to cover himself before going to bed, he is now able to go to sleep freely without shame. Today, he is confident to move around unlike in the past when the fear to embarrass himself through bedwetting had taken him hostage. Mr Amadi thanked God for his deliverance and urged people all over the world to take God as the only and best solution to any problem.


“I am sorry, sir. I am afraid it is the truth.” Mr Victor Igboderika could not believe what he read. Insisting that the doctor may have made a mistake in the test, he asked for further confirmation but was told that he not only had low sperm count, but had no active sperm cells at all. To make matters worse, he had just proposed to his fiancée who had accepted. He now had the agonizing task of how to break the news to her and he feared that he would watch her walk out of his life. To his surprise, she didn’t even bat an eyelid and said that the result did not matter to her as she believed that nothing was impossible with God. The marriage went ahead and what became a six year battle with barrenness began in the young couple’s lives.


Mr & Mrs Igboderika & Friend

Being informed by a friend, they came to The SCOAN in December of 2014, where they were prayed for by the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua on the prayer line. Mr Igboderika recalled how he felt a hefty object slide down his chest into his stomach and then vanish after the prayer. Interestingly, his wife recounted the same experience as he had. Before leaving the church, they were given the Morning Water to minister over themselves and take home with them.

In less than two weeks, Mrs Igboderika was confirmed pregnant. She went on to deliver a bouncing baby boy, named David Igboderika. For Mr Igboderika, a visit to the laboratory for sperm analysis showed that his sperm cells are now 180 million per millimetre from the previous 0 per millimetre.

His wife rejoiced for the life of their first baby, saying that he would not be the last by the grace of God. She described her time of pregnancy as being without any event, no fever, no pain and no problem. Even on the day of her delivery, she commented, “I delivered as one of the Hebrew women. I didn’t even know I had gone into labour.” Truly, their testimony has been restored through the Morning Water. A sound word of advice followed the couple’s radiant testimony as they told other hopeful parents that no matter what their situation looked like, they should believe God is still saying something in their lives.



Born in India to parents from Imo State, Nigeria and raised in London, UK from the age of one, Jennifer grew up and fell into satan’s claws. Most of her problems started when she was barely twelve years old. Following a bad crowd, she was introduced to shoplifting and taking drugs. Something that started as a game, soon turned into a terrible addiction as the voice of the evil spirit in her head pushed her to steal clothes, bags, perfume and even traffic drugs. The separation of her parents affected her emotionally but she buried herself in her wild lifestyle. She developed a hatred for her mother, who was a hard working, strict woman who tried her best to discipline her but the damage had already been done by the influence of bad friends until she reached the point when she ran away from the house. Now, free and thinking she was a ‘big woman’, she continued her life of clubbing, drinking, smoking, shoplifting, taking drugs and even selling them. Jennifer soon tasted the bitter part of the freedom she had long sought for when she became a professional drug trafficker.


Jennifer & Mother

At 16, she gave birth to her first child and by 17, she was a mother of two. Following the voice of the evil spirit, she even got three tattoos on her body, that the demons used to monitor her movements. Soon after that, the different fathers of both children disappeared and she continued her reckless life, a single mum. Suddenly, she received a letter from the father of one of her children, saying, “I am in prison. Can you help me?” She arranged to visit him and during the visit, he asked her for a favour. Because he was the father of her child, she agreed. She was told to meet a man at the train station and collect a package containing drugs and bring it to him in prison.

During another prison visit, she noticed that those with children were not searched so she decided to bring her children the next time to avoid suspicion. Although she managed to pass the drugs to him without being caught, the prison security found the drugs on him and she was traced and arrested. Her children were removed from her and taken to social services and later placed with her mother. After a court case lasting one year, she was sentenced to two years in prison after 37 previous shoplifting offenses were used as further evidence against her. When she had been in prison seven months, the news came to her that her children had been taken away from her mother and were now back in social services.

When she was finally released from prison, she was relocated outside of London in an attempt to separate her from her bad friends. Still her mind was not free as the evil voice kept telling her to go back to her bad habits. When her mother asked her to accompany her to Nigeria to receive her deliverance at The SCOAN, she reluctantly agreed thinking it was opportunity for a holiday. The minute she entered the gates of The SCOAN building, a terrible migraine started as the evil spirit did not want her to receive her freedom.

When the time came for the ministration of the Morning Water, her legs began to shake and when she was ministered to, her head felt as if it was going to explode. For the first time, she prayed, “Lord, I have come all the way from London. I cannot go back with this problem. Please deliver me!” The moment came and the sprit that pushed her to prison was exposed and expelled forever! Smiling to the congregation and Emmanuel TV viewers, she said that the first thing she noticed was that she felt light. Secondly, she began to greet and care for the mother that she had hated and disrespected before. Every morning, she now reads her Bible and the evil voice in her heart is a thing of the past. After her deliverance, she had a dream in which certain horrible creatures tried to lure her into a deep pit. She was almost going down the pit when a strange hand held her away into safety. Jennifer confessed that she is now a new person after her deliverance.

Now totally free from smoking, drinking and taking drugs, she advised the world that The Morning Water is the last solution. Her mother, overcome with joy for the deliverance of her daughter who before would only greet her to ask for money thanked God for the answer to her prayers.


The kingdom of darkness was in total shambles on Sunday November 22, 2015 as God’s power descended mightily in the service at The SCOAN. In a message titled, LIBERTY FROM ANXIETY, Evangelist Bolaji captured the sad reality staring the Christian race in the face. Many have allowed the worries and cares of this transient world to weaken their faith in God and His promise of eternal glory. She defined anxiety as an enemy of progress in a Christian’s life as it tends to pitch him or her against their belief in God.



Our personal cares for the present, future, family and others are capable of changing our focus from running the straight race with God, especially when they arise from unbelief and distrust. Therefore, don’t be agitated and thrown into confusion. Worries about tomorrow do not advance our cause at all; they are absolutely useless. Remember that anxiety distracts one’s mind and hinders our interest in the service of God”.


The faith-destroying tendencies of anxiety notwithstanding, Evangelist Bolaji provided a Spirit-inspired recipe for all Christians to remain focused on God and His everlasting promises.


“Free yourself in the Word of God. When your spirit is free, it becomes sensitive to the Spirit of God. Do you want a free spirit? Keep your heart from cares. He who bore the burdens of our sorrows, worries, fears, cares and anxieties desires us to leave it entirely for Him because He alone knows what it takes to give us rest. Why don’t we trust Him and let Him prove Himself? After all, He is the Governor of our future – He owns the future”.


SCOAN Evangelists, sent by Prophet T.B. Joshua, led the congregants in yet another round of Mass Prayer that was massive in every sense of the word. Stubborn spirits, yokes, curses and sundry afflictions were broken by the power in the name of Jesus. Age-long demonic entanglements were disentangled as the atmosphere of prayer grew in intensity. Those who had been poisoned spiritually received deliverance as they vomited all evil deposits in their systems to the glory of God.


With all the songs of reverence to the Almighty God emanating from the choir, the testimonies that followed were indeed a reflection of one fact – GOD’S WORD WILL NEVER RETURN TO HIM VOID WITHOUT ACCOMPLISHING THAT WHICH IT HAS BEEN SENT TO ACHIEVE IN THE LIVES OF HIS CHILDREN.




Mr Jack Washington, a native of Rivers state, residing in Abuja, Nigeria, was diagnosed with diabetes and suffered from the effects of the disease for eight long years. Psychologically and financially, he was not having the best of experiences. Aside the numerous places he had visited in search of a never-coming solution, he also had to bear the brunt of consuming a cocktail of medicines, both orthodox and non-orthodox. He would always wake up at night to empty his bladder indiscriminately; sometimes, he did so twenty times in a night! Weakness of the body and internal heat were other issues he had to battle with.


Knowing that his family had an infamous reputation of producing diabetics, he was afraid and hoped that his case would not be like that of his mother who was sent to her grave by the disease. Something urgent had to be done for Mr Washington to carry on with the good life he had always envisaged. A friend introduced him to Emmanuel TV, having also experienced the hand of God through the ministry. Convinced that his friend’s testimony was enough proof to cement his own faith in God, he made up his mind and started praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua.


Praying with the man of God on Emmanuel TV soon became a daily affair to the extent that he never went to bed without doing so. One day, while praying with Prophet T.B. Joshua, he felt something like a shock. After moments of contemplating what was going on with him, he discovered that the perennial internal heat that had troubled his sleep and comfort was no more. An inexplicable level of calmness took over his life. Gradually, all the other debilitating symptoms of diabetes became extinct. A visit to his doctors later confirmed that his blood sugar level had returned to normal. His joy knew no bounds as he thanked God for the seamless miracle that had taken place in his life. He advised people to cultivate strong faith in God in order to receive His blessings.



When her aunty presented her with the offer of coming over to Italy to seek greener pastures, her heart leapt with exuberant joy. The prospects of working and earning foreign currency thrilled her. Above all, the prestige associated with living abroad, especially in Europe made her grab the offer without looking back. But for Blessing, what awaited her in Italy was a far cry from her expectations. The Nigerian adventurer from Benin soon realised that not all that glitters is gold.


Faced with the grim reality of working as a prostitute to earn a living in a strange land, she had no option than to dance to the irresponsible tunes of her so-called aunty. The camp followers of the illicit trade soon found their ways into her life. Cigarette and Indian hemp smoking were habits she had to live with for twenty five years. She emaciated at some point when the smoking habit took the place of good food in her life. Even the Italian whom she later married was also hooked on those substances. He would smoke himself to stupefying heights and damn the consequences. He never believed in God. He lived his life on the spur of the moment. In a nutshell, husband and wife were a notorious tag-team in the smoking art.


But an encounter with Emmanuel TV soon brought the storm of their lives to an end. Inspired by the Spirit-filled programmes, Blessing’s life was transformed. Those dirty habits became things of the past. As she got and continued to minister the Morning Water on herself and her stubborn husband, the reality and intensity of their transformation became visible to all. For a woman who had smoked for twenty five years, it is now exactly two years since she parted ways with the spirit behind smoking. The husband has also been delivered from that spirit of smoking through the medium of the Morning Water.


Thanking God for rescuing them from that destructive path, Blessing radiated undiluted peace of mind while calling on viewers all over the world to grab the wonderful healing, deliverance and blessings through the medium of the Morning Water anointed by Jesus Christ.



Mr and Mrs Bassey Enefiok were searching for the fruit of the womb. For six years, they did everything within their human capacity but still could not bring about the cry of a baby in the family. Mrs Enefiok had been suffering from some complications right from childhood and had to come under the surgeon’s knife on six different occasions. Those complications played a major role in ensuring that she never had a child. While she managed to bear the social consequences of childlessness, she continued to look for solution until she came across Emmanuel TV.


Having attuned themselves to Emmanuel TV and the power of God manifested at The SCOAN, the couple came down to the church and received the Morning Water. Ministering the Morning Water and believing in God for a miracle, Mrs Enefiok eventually became pregnant and gave birth to a baby boy after nine months. With the coming of their child also came financial breakthrough and abundance. The couple’s businesses began to boom as money also came from different angles. God also blessed them with a home of their own and an exotic car for their mobility.


Thanking God for the turn-around in their fortunes, the couple advised people all over the world to hearken to the counsels of God’s Prophets, stressing that the Morning Water is a product of prophetic insight God sent to mankind through Prophet T.B. Joshua. She then happily told the congregation that she is currently pregnant with her second child!



Mr Simeon Boafo-Lartey had borrowed some money from a bank with the intention of investing into a business. Unfortunately, his plans hit the brick wall; the business never materialised even as the money also went down the drain. The bank would not take any of his excuses; instead, the management resorted to selling his house which he had used as collateral for the loan. It was a pretty embarrassing scenario for Mr Boafo-Lartey and his family. Though he lived in the house, the bank had sold it and was only waiting to throw him out. He was like a man on house arrest. Worried about the development, he contacted his son in the US who sent down some money for their upkeep. But rather than convert the money to domestic use, Mr Boafo-Lartey used it to fund his journey to The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria.


During a Sunday service at The SCOAN, he received a prophecy from Prophet T.B. Joshua concerning his indebtedness to the bank. The man of God urged him to pay the loan and also prophesied about a land through which his freedom from debt would come. Before leaving The SCOAN for his country, he also received the Morning Water. When he got to Ghana, he continued to minister the Morning Water while calling on God to change his situation from bad to good. Not quite long after he had started ministering the Morning Water, he received a call from a friend who was in search of land. It was from the sale of that land that he raised the money to settle his debt with the bank.


After clearing his loan, reprieve came the way of his family as other miracles started coming in turns. His garage which could not boast of a single vehicle now has a fleet of 12 trucks parked therein. Mr Boafo-Lartey was also blessed with a Toyota Land cruiser. Testifying in company of his visibly elated wife, he advised people all over the world to never lose hope in God.



Mr Etu Ernest from Edo State, Nigeria was a rampant womaniser to the extent that he went to the cemetery to bury charms in order to win the heart of a woman whom his friend was having an affair with. A native doctor had prepared the charm for him but it did not work even after a second attempt. Instead of winning the heart of the girl in question, dead people approached and interacted with him in his dreams. At that point, he was fed up and needed an escape route.


Even with a legally married wife, Mr Ernest could not be satisfied sexually. He would camp in hotels with different women without the knowledge of his wife. Most of his concerned friends wondered how he lavished his money when some of them were already doing good things with theirs. It was disheartening for them to realise that while they were making investments against the rainy day, he was frolicking in self-delusion with women of easy virtue and building his own castles in the air.


When it dawned on him that the life he was living was abnormal, he came down to The SCOAN in search of redemption. Seated during a Sunday service, his case was prophetically spotted by Prophet T.B. Joshua who told him about his escapades at the graveyard. After the prophecy, he received deliverance and is now enjoying a new lease of life in Christ Jesus. Blessed with the Morning Water and Morning Stickers, Mr Ernest has continued to wax stronger and stronger in faith. God has restored his troubled marriage as he now has time for his wife; they both plan the progress of their family unlike in the past. Mr Ernest is also doing better in his job and has received the blessing of a new car from God.


Testifying further on his deliverance, he also recalled his miraculous protection during an accident in which his former car somersaulted and yet did not have any dent or cause any injury to him. Instead, he was miraculously lifted to safety by a strange hand. According to Mr Ernest, the ministration of the Morning Water which had since become a daily practice coupled with the Morning Stickers on the windscreen of the vehicle, were the medium through which God granted him his miraculous escape from that accident. He advised people not to run from God but to run to Him.



On Sunday November 15, 2015, Prophet T.B. Joshua sent evangelists to continue their Spirit-filled raid on the kingdom of darkness through a power-packed Mass Prayer that witnessed a colossal dismantling of strongholds and the deliverance of chained destinies during church service. Many vomited strange substances which their souls had been contaminated with through spiritual pollution. Others manifested demonic possession and eventually got loosed for life through the blood of Jesus present in the Morning Water. The testimonies that followed showed the efficacy of prayer and further buttressed the fact that The SCOAN is indeed the Arena of Liberty. As the Choir interjected intermittently with their songs, the congregants exuded so much faith and with their response to the melodies, suggested that it was their turn to arise and shine.

EVANGELIST MICHELLEEvangelist Michelle, in a message titled HEART OF THE MATTER, called on Christians to cultivate a pure heart that is capable of connecting with Heaven by meditating on the Word in Spirit and in truth as that is the only way they can guarantee themselves a place in God’s Kingdom. Taking a lead from 1 Samuel 16 which expresses God’s preference for our hearts rather than our outward appearances, she summed up the heart of the matter with the following words: “The Bible is telling us here that the condition of our heart is critical in our walk with the Lord. We need a free spirit, a free heart to connect with Heaven. If God dwells in your heart, it is Heaven but if satan dwells in it, your heart is hell because your heart is the communication point, contact point between the visible and the invisible, between God or satan. Your heart is the contact point for Heaven or hell depending of what you focus on, what you give your attention to and what you meditate on all day long.”



Miss Ofurum Confidence was possessed with a legion of marine spirits right from birth. As she grew up, the spirits began to manifest in her life. They would visit her physically and do her bidding because she was queen in the marine world and wielded some powers and influence over them. She had had physical encounters with the giant man, snake, queen of the coast and ancestral spirit. They usually carried out her orders whenever she wanted to deal with any perceived enemy or someone who had hurt or offended her. In all, she had a total of 120 spirits living inside her. MISS OFUKUM CONFIDENCE

Anytime she got upset at home, she would make the house uninhabitable for other family members. She would reach for the nearest weapons such as kitchen knives and scissors and use then to scare everyone away from the house. Even her elder brother would not stand her physically. Her stubbornness and boldness were so frightening to the extent that she fought a teacher in her school and had to be expelled by the school authorities for her escapade.  For her, she was somewhat above the law and untouchable.

She had powers that she deployed whenever she wanted to deal with those who stepped on her toes. Her left finger could spell doom for anyone who offended her each time she raised it while commanding a misfortune to happen to the person. Her eyes had their own powers; to magnetise, seduce and attract men or women whom she wanted to have as friends. Her legs also had their own powers. Whenever she stepped into a place, she caused distractions with them as everyone present would fix their eyes on her.

She smoked cigarettes and drank alcohol and had a strange love for corpses. Each time someone was about to die in her vicinity, some demons would inform her. And until she saw their corpses, she would not be satisfied. She went on with her rampaging life until that Sunday at The SCOAN when the power of the Most High through the medium of the Morning Water brought all the demons propelling her life to destruction to their feet.

While the evangelist was ministering the Morning Water on congregants, the demons in her could not stand the heat and had to manifest. First it was the giant man followed by the snake spirit and then the queen of the coast followed by the ancestral spirit. Even though the demons were clearly being pummelled by the fire of the Holy Ghost, their host was not willing to be brought to her knees as she ran helter-skelter, screaming “fire…fire”. As the demons left one after the other, the man of God who was in Tanzania sent a message instructing the evangelist to minister the Morning Water on her feet. As soon as that was done, the unyielding, stubborn and aggressive demons went crumbled like a pack of cards. Surely, the centre and source of her evil powers had been located and dismantled through the prophetic insight of the man of God.

Thanking God for her deliverance in company of her mother and elder brother, Miss Confidence expressed joy for finding a new life of freedom in Christ Jesus.


Mr Gordon Danlaadi from Ghana was doing very well in his musical instruments business and was travelling around the worldMR GORDON DANLAADI until the unfortunate winds of life blew sorrow to his direction. Between 2008 and 2009, his business crumbled. He lost everything, including his wife and was left with a huge debt profile. Life became a mere shadow of itself even as he resigned to his fate. Like Job, nothing mattered anymore other than God. He sought God through Emmanuel TV and kept his fainting hope alive with the channel. According to Mr Danlaadi, if not for Emmanuel TV, he would have died.

Coming down to The SCOAN to further cement his faith in God, he was shocked to receive a prophecy from the man of God. “…have you paid the money?” asked the man of God. Mr Danlaadi was shocked knowing that his indebtedness to the bank was a top secret between him and the financial institution. He however buttressed his belief in the prophetic gift of the man of God and received the Morning Water which he continued to minister in prayer when he returned to Ghana. After a while, he was able to raise money to pay off his debt but was still doing nothing business-wise.

Suddenly, he received a call from his business partners who queried his long absence from China. It was after he explained his experiences to them that they decided to start supplying him goods on credit with the grace of payment after months. It was from there that his story began to change for the better. Today, Mr Danlaadi owns an unprecedented roofing factory in the northern part of Ghana, employing up to 100 workers. The commissioning of the factory was graced by the crème de la crème of northern Ghana, including regional ministers and chiefs. Thanking God for wiping away his tears of despair, Mr Danlaadi urged people to hold on to Him at all times.


Mrs Anna Ben, a nurse from Zamfara, Nigeria was diagnosed with lumbar spondylosis and was advised by doctors to seek further medical attention in India. Because of the waist pain and other debilitating symptoms that she experienced, her job was threatened as she could hardly do anything without assistance. Matters got worse when she was told that she would use a lumbar corset and analgesics for life. But refusing to accept the reality before her, she came down to The SCOAN to seek God’s help. MRS ANNA BEN (1)

At The SCOAN, she received the Morning Water and prayers from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. As soon as she received the Morning Water, she discarded the lumbar corset and continued to minister it to herself amid prayers. In a short while, all the symptoms disappeared. She began to walk withouMRS ANNA BEN (2)t assistance and is now totally healed of lumbar spondylosis. Mrs Ben also testified to the goodness of God in the life of her daughter who was granted fruit of the womb after ministering the Morning Water with her husband. Today, they are blessed with a two year-old baby boy to the glory of God. She advised viewers all over the world to take the Morning Water seriously as it is a gift from God to mankind.


kuthala awunzieWhen Mrs Khuthala Awunzie was pregnant with her son, she had serious complications resulting in bleeding. The doctors had
advised her to abort the baby as it might not survive. But believing in God, she carried on with the pregnancy and eventually delivered a premature baby at seven months. After the baby was born, it was placed in the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital. While the baby was in the ICU, Mr Awunzie dashed down to The SCOAN and got the Morning Water which he ministered on the baby on return to South Africa. Within two days of ministering the Morning Water, doctors had certified the baby fit for a discharge. Since then till today, the baby who is now a 4 year-old boy has not fallen ill.

At a time when poverty and career setback were setting into her life, Mrs Awunzie came to The SCOAN and received the Morning Water. She had resigned her employment due to frustration and was not even asked by her employers the reason for her resignation. But after receiving and ministering the Morning Water, the same employers who accepted her resignation recalled her and placed her on a higher position with a better pay package. Even her husband who also had his own share of the abject poverty now has three different companies including a commercial laundry after ministering the Morning Water. Today, husband and wife have two exotic cars and are proud to be a blessing to others, in Jesus’ name.


15-11-2015 [CH] (16)Mrs Aboh Doris from Delta state was a broadcast journalist who suffered serious rejection before she eventually got a job. Even when she did get a job, disappointments, delays and failure to remunerate her became issues she had to deal with. She was spurred to start her own media outfit but could not sustain that for long as challenges thwarted all her efforts to meet
deadlines. In a nutshell, she inexplicably could not satisfy her clients. She got confused and was even becoming a menace to her marital life as her husband queried the essence of her going out every time when she could not point to one thing she had achieved in the name of her so-called job.

Disturbed by the turn of things in her life, she woke up from sleep one fateful day and glued herself to Emmanuel TV through which she got the inspiration to carry on with her life. She had watched the testimony of a lady who received her breakthrough at The SCOAN and decided to visit the church. Coming down to Lagos from Delta state, she was at The SCOAN gate but was deceived to return to her state by an evil voice within her which told her that there was nothing for her at the Arena of Liberty. As she embarked on the return journey, another voice told her to go back to The SCOAN where her breakthrough was waiting for her. In fulfilment of a dream in which she encountered the man of God assuring her of her breakthrough, the mMRS ABOH DORIS YERI & FAMILYan of God prayed for her and gave her the Morning Water. After she ministered the Morning Water, things began to change. She eventually got a job with Africa Magic and afterwards got the opportunity to cover a national event at the International Conference Centre, Abuja. She travelled widely across the African continent and also established a multi-million naira studio.

To crown all her efforts, her continuous ministration of the Morning Water led to her being appointed as the Senior Special Adviser on Media to the Deputy Governor of her state. Singing with unbridled joy and confidence before The SCOAN congregation in company of her family, Mrs Aboh Doris also thanked God for providing a home for her immediate family plus a car gift she received from her husband in appreciation of God’s glory in her life. In her parting statement, she sang of her encounter with destiny-changing solution at The SCOAN, after several futile attempts all over the place.


MISS MARIA CHIAZORMiss Maria Chiazor had thought that her ambition to study Nursing would end up a pipe dream due to the sad reality of her parents’ inability to provide funds to see her through at the Institute of Public Health in Niger Republic. But being a member of the Youth Department of The SCOAN, the benevolent hands of God would soon locate her. In the angst of all the financial tension facing her family, The SCOAN Scholarship Programme came to her rescue. All her tuition and sundry fees were paid. She also received spiritual guidance from the man of God who gave her the Faith Bracelet and the Morning Water.

At the end of her studies, Miss Chiazor came out on top with a First Class honours. Currently undergoing her National Youth Service Corps programme, she thanked God for using Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV Partners to rescue her education which was threatened by lack of finance. She advised youths to pursue their education with utmost passion and remain focused. She equally urged them to work as if everything depends on them and pray as if everything depends on God.

EVANGELIST EVELYN JOSHUAOn Sunday November 8, 2015, congregants at The SCOAN witnessed God’s presence in an elaborate fashion. The multi-lingual deliveries of the Choir carried everybody along and ignited the passion for true praise and worship in the minds of all those present. The time of Mass Prayer witnessed the bombardment of the kingdom of darkness from many fronts. Unclean spirits which could not withstand the onslaught of the power of God succumbed to the anointing by manifesting through their victims before they were cast out in Jesus’ mighty name never to return.

In her short but explosive message titled THE WAY OF THE CROSS, Evangelist Evelyn Joshua highlighted the precocity of God’s grace in the lives of His creation, especially those who have been redeemed by the death of Christ on the Cross. The core essence of her message is captured in the following words: “But if the battle were for the strong or the race for the swift, there would have been no basis for the promise of hope – for people like you and I, without fast legs, smoothness of tongue or power to inspire. Many a good man, dedicated and hard working spend their days unnoticed and uncelebrated. What can you say? God knows we are weak that is why He chooses grace.” In a closing prayer, she commended all who received the message to depend upon the grace of God.


Right from childhood, MRS MARIA .C.SAKALA suffered from bronchial asthma. She was allergic to smoke, dust and all perfume fragrances. As she grew up, her attempts to control the condition resulted in her romance with alcoholic concoctions through the advice of friends and family who reckoned that a mixture of ginger, garlic and brandy or gin would take care of her problem. But rather than yield the much desired result, she became a drunkard who developed serious dependence on alcoholic beverages just to get through the day. On several occasions, she would lie to her siblings and even steal from her husband in order to satiate her alcoholic appetite, especially on Fridays.

By the time she got married, she found a worthy partner in her husband who himself was prolific in consuming booze. It was a sorry story to see husband and wife hooked on a substance that had destroyed many lives and destinies. However, God intervened in their lives through a friend in Swaziland. They were introduced to Emmanuel TV by that friend and her husband was the first to be touched by God. While watching Emmanuel TV together, Mr Sakala touched the screen and suddenly began to shake and fell to the floor. His wife dismissed it as a result of drunkenness. After that moment of an encounter with Jesus Christ through Emmanuel TV till today, he has not taken alcohol. For Mrs Sakala, she was not so easily taken with the channel and continued asking money from her husband to continue her usual drinking habits. He obliged but each time told her that she would soon join him. Truly, a short time later, Mrs Sakala also gave up her drinking after a while of watching Emmanuel TV and praying with the man of God. She couldn’t even understand how it all happened but she was certain the miracle came through praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV.

Mrs Sakala also testified to her healing from bronchial asthma and an enlarged heart after she was prayed for by the man of God at the Prayer Line. After the prayer, she has not experienced any of those debilitating symptoms anymore. Even when she returned to her country of residence, she discovered she could do those things she could not do before. All subsequent medical reports showed that she now has a clean bill of health. Mrs Sakala, in the spirit of thanksgiving, advised people all over the world to remain steadfast in God.


Mr Henry Preye, a native of Bayelsa State residing in Port Harcourt, was diagnosed with kidney stones. For seven years, heMR HENRY PREYE suffered from severe and excruciating pain. In spite of all the medications he took, there was no solution in sight as the pains continued. A friend introduced him to Emmanuel TV and he afterwards became an ardent viewer of the channel. As he continued to watch Emmanuel TV, his faith grew in leaps and bounds. He became passionate about the healing and miracles that happen at The SCOAN and decided to visit the church.

When he visited The SCOAN, he received the Morning Water and went back home happy and convinced that God would set him free from the health burden he was carrying. As he continued to minister the Morning Water to himself with prayer and fasting, he discovered that those painful symptoms were beginning to subside. This development coincided with his company’s directive to all staff to go for medical check-ups. It was when his medical results came out that it was confirmed that his kidney problem was no more. Today, he is free from the ailment. To further confirm his healing, Mr Preye also passed out the kidney stones through urine after using water therapy as directed by the man of God. Thanking God for his healing, he advised people with similar challenges to know the truth as it would set them free.


HON. DR. LABODEHon. Dr. Ruth Labode is a member of the Zimbabwean parliament. She is a medical doctor by profession and served her region as the first female medical director. After a while, she developed some allergies and decided to go into private business. The business however did not last too long, leaving her indebted to a local bank to the tune of over a hundred thousand US dollars. As she struggled to gather herself together, the bank came asking to recover the debt she owed. At this juncture, she became confused and harboured suicidal thoughts knowing that her only house could be confiscated by the bank and auctioned.

In a chance meeting with the chief executive of another bank, she explained her challenges to the man who afterwards intervened by paying the loan she owed the other bank and spread the repayment for her in a 10-year mortgage plan, thereby ensuring that her house was saved from being auctioned as threatened by the loaner bank. These developments came after she had ministered the Morning Water. As she continued ministering the Morning Water and praying with the Morning Sticker, Dr. Labode, who was just an ordinary nominee, went on to become a member of parliament and was eventually elected the chairperson of the Health Committee. She was also appointed into the national executive committee of her political party.

Thanking God for the legion of blessings bestowed upon her by God through the Morning Water and Morning Sticker, Dr. Labode also noted that her son received a grant he had applied for after they prayed and ministered the Morning Water. He also got a job through the same medium to the glory of God. Dr. Labode advised people to trust in God and have faith Him in whatever they do.


Ms Hannah Bazon from Sierra Leone was given a charm by her mother to use for her ‘success and protection’ yet since then, her life took a destructive turn. She became afflicted with violent spirits, including that of a lion which pushed her to do a tattoo on her hand. She suffered from severe anger and lust and was so violent to the extent that when she caught her only son stealing their neighbour’s meat, she thrust his hands up to the wrist in the flames the meat was cooking in. She would go around fighting even with men.

HANNAH BAZONMembers of her family would always call her to come and fight for them whenever they had quarrels with people. She lied against her stepfather, one of her greatest benefactors in order to take him out of her way because the spirit in her disliked the good works he was doing in her life. She also engaged in prostitution and had a special way of seducing men. She continued to wallow in her pitiable lifestyle until she succumbed to the power of God during Mass Prayer at The SCOAN Sunday service.

During the Mass Prayer, the demon in her spoke out as it crawled menacingly like a wild cat, confessing the many evils it had done to destroy her life and that of her son. Weeping profusely as a sign of regret for all the evil spirit had led her to do against her will, she thanked God for giving her a new beginning through deliverance and advised people, especially parents, to monitor their wards and watch the things they give to them.


Mr Alexander Johnson, a Liberian residing in Ghana was possessed by the spirit of a bush dog which tormented his life with ALEXANDAER JOHNSONseveral other spirits, including anger, lust and poverty. According to him, the genesis of his problem is traceable to his grandfather who was very traditional in nature and who took him to so many places. He recalled one occasion when his grandfather took him to a bush where he was given something that looked like palm wine to drink. Days after that experience, he found himself sleeping with a mentally impaired woman at the tender age of six. Since then, he had been lusting after young girls and elderly women alike. He also developed the spirit of anger after he saw a dog which was unable to bite him in his dream, appear and bite him in the leg the following day.

He had fathered three children from three different women and could not cater for them because he had nothing. The dog spirit also confessed to have been responsible for his poverty. Anytime he had sexual relationship with any woman, that woman’s progress depreciated. He impregnated many women and also helped them to abort the pregnancies. In all, he had aborted about twenty pregnancies. He would later be introduced to Emmanuel TV by a friend and was shocked when a prophecy by the man of God concerning Nigeria’s qualification for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa came to pass. After that experience, he made up his mind to visit The SCOAN.

Present in the church auditorium during a Sunday service, he manifested the dog spirit when authority was taken in the name of Jesus to pull down strongholds and wicked spirits as the Mass Prayer went on. Mr Johnson was eventually delivered and is now enjoying that inner peace and freedom associated with a soul that has found rest and restoration through Christ Jesus. He advised people to run to God whenever they notice strange things in their lives as events which seem ordinary may have extraordinary effects in the spirit.


MR& MRS EMMANUEL KOLO & CHILDRENMrs Kolo had come to The SCOAN with the problem of severe chest pain but received an entirely different prophecy from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. Seated in the church auditorium, the man of God walked up to her and told her that there was a letter for her husband. At first she looked confused but eventually it dawned on her that the man of God was very correct with the prophetic message he had given her. Concerning her chest pain, all efforts by her husband who is a medical doctor, to treat her proved abortive as she had to be referred to a senior doctor. After several tests, nothing was found. The doctors, in their own human reasoning advised her not to get pregnant with the condition as it could threaten her life. She could not sleep at night and found it very difficult to drive. However, after her encounter with the man of God where after he had prayed for her, the pain disappeared. She now does those things she could not do before. She has even given birth to a baby girl to the glory of His name.

For Mr Kolo, the prophecy the man of God gave to his wife about a letter came to be fulfilled in multiple dimensions. Having prayed over the prophecy together with his wife amid ministration of the Morning Water, Mr Kolo received a letter after two weeks from the office of the Registrar, Bayero University Kano, confirming his promotion from the rank of Lecturer 1 to Senior Lecturer. Afterwards, he received a letter from the National Post Graduate Medical College of Nigeria appointing him as an Examiner even though he does not have the pre-requisite qualification. In the same vein, after one year, the West African College of Surgeons also appointed him as an Examiner without having the full qualification there either. In August 2015, he received another letter from the Registrar of Bayero University confirming that his papers have been submitted for consideration for promotion to the rank of Associate Professor.

Mr Kolo also received another letter from the Federal Government confirming him as one of the lucky applicants who won the YouWin grant for small scale businesses. In spite of all the challenges he encountered along the way, he was able to navigate his way out through the ministration of the Morning Water. He eventually got a letter affirming that he has been awarded a 10 million naira grant to start an ear, nose and throat clinic in Kano. Mr Kolo has dedicated his services mostly to the poor and less- privileged. He observed that his inspiration to help the poor and needy came from the counsels of the man of God who encourages people to reach out to the needy.

Finally, those who go the way of the Cross must understand that to a man of faith nothing is lacking while everything is necessary. God is concerned about you and the gracious call Christ gave to us to come to Him encourages our hope, that when we come to Him, we will receive freedom, power and grace, deliverance, healing and all of God’s blessings. May the Lord strengthen you to go the way of the Cross, in Jesus’ name.

EVANG. ANNE (1)The SCOAN Sunday service of November 1, 2015 reflected the generality of human experience across the world. The congregants sang and danced along with the church choir, irrespective of the harsh realities in the outside world. They seemed to suggest that once they are inside the Arena of Liberty, all their problems and challenges are gone forever. Evangelist Anne’s message titled THE PRESENTATION OF EVIL also captured the prevailing circumstances around the world. It echoed the deceptive realities that the devil has continued to use to pull many souls to his side. The façades called wealth and fame are good but, according to Evangelist Anne, a good Christian must not put them first before God. She summed up her admonition to Christians to be wary of satan and his chameleonic antics lest they begin to see the presentation of evil in good light: “If you are focused only on making money or acquiring possessions, a large slice of life will pass you by because a focus on materialism diverts our devotion from God Almighty to the god of wealth; distracts our mind and hinders our interest in the service of God. Though possessions are a useful support, we should not put our trust in them rather, they should be in reverence to God. Those with the most positive impact on society are not so much concerned with fame or fortune”.



MR MOSES MASENYAMr Moses Masenya had three different certificates, including two distinctions in Chemical Engineering and Production Management and yet could not lay his hands on a job. Even when he once had an opportunity to attend a job interview, he was told that he was over-qualified and therefore, could not be employed. At a time, he tried to conceal his qualifications in order to get a job but nothing was forthcoming. He became more and more confused and depressed as most of his mates were already working with big companies and cruising in flashy cars. Many people mocked him and rubbished all his educational qualifications. Even when he eventually got a job, it was one to ensure that he did not die of hunger as he lived from hand to mouth with very tight and insufficient finances.

As he faced the grim reality of hardship and stagnation, friends and family deserted him. He even became scared of associating with people because of his poverty. His visits to different prophets and prayer mountains did not yield any results. All encouragement by well-wishers seemed not to have any positive effect on him as he continued in his romance with hard times. His constant depression was not going down well with his wife who always encouraged him to socialise with friends in order to dispel the tension that had been causing the depression. It was on one of such socialisation visits to a family friend that he encountered Emmanuel TV. The teeming testimonies of people who had experienced the benevolent hands of God at The SCOAN encouraged him to believe that his case would not be an exception. He could not resist the alluring prospects of visiting The SCOAN.

When he finally arrived at The SCOAN, he received yoke-breaking prayers from Prophet T.B. Joshua and also got the Morning Water with which he returned to his country. Dedicated to his prayers and the ministration of the Morning Water, he continued to call on God to change the story of his life which had been at point zero. In a matter of months, his life was transformed in a manner that defied human reasoning. What he could not achieve in twenty years, came to him on God’s platter of gold, within one year. Today, he is the proud owner of an agro-allied business factory in Johannesburg with many staff under his employment. He also owns a fleet of exotic cars and has become benefactor to many including the less privileged in society. Thanking God for lifting him from zero to hero, he urged people all over the world to realise that life is full of tests that are meant to be passed before breakthroughs come.


MR & MRS PIUS ODIAKA OKOHOFor four years, Mrs Ijeoma Odiaka and her husband could not hear the cry of a child in their home. They had been declared barren due to certain infections. For Mrs Odiaka, it was candidiasis and hormonal imbalance while Mr Odiaka had low sperm count. Their inability to bear children was a pill too bitter to swallow as they faced the social embarrassment that follows such conditions. Last year, the couple visited The SCOAN and received prayer from Prophet T.B. Joshua. They also received the Morning Water. They continued to minister the Morning Water amid prayers while hoping expectantly for a miracle. Within one month, Mrs Odiaka was confirmed pregnant by her doctors.

Mr Odiaka confirmed that Prophet T.B. Joshua appeared in his dreams on several occasions and ensured that no complications arose from the pregnancy. According to him, the man of God always appeared in those dreams to adjust the baby whenever it was not positioned properly. After nine months, Mr and Mrs Odiaka welcomed their first baby christened Odiaka Happiness Chukwuemeka [‘God has done it’]. Testifying with joy radiating all over her face, Mrs Odiaka declared that the sorrow and tears they had experienced for those four years have been replaced by joy unspeakable in the mighty name of Jesus through the medium of the Morning Water and the Faith Bracelet. The couple reminded viewers all over the world that with God, all things are possible, while pledging to train the child in the way of the Lord.


Mr Moses Simone from Cameroon came from a poor background and was left to face the stark realities of a troubled world after he lost his parents in his childhood. Even though he was very brilliant in primary school, what he would later get from life was totally incongruous with his expectations. He took to the trade he had learnt in order to see himself through the uneasy journey of life. But he was soon to realise that not all that glitters is gold. As he would later discover, a woman he had taken as his own mother, unknowingly cast an evil spell on him and opened his soul to demonic possession with the spirit of a bush  pig and spiritual wife. She had picked an instrument and asked him to keep it in a basket inside his blacksmithing shop, only for him to discover that she had also placed a strange stone in the same place.MR MOSES SIMON

Moments after that episode, Mr Simone found himself covered with cobwebs. He would later dream that night of himself being chased menacingly by masquerades. Other evil dreams became a recurring decimal. He would either dream of climbing high mountains, having sex or sleeping in the midst of bush pigs. His life became terrible in reality. The spirit of womanising soon took over him. Even when he did not go for women, they came for him. His social life deteriorated and saw him father four children with four different women. The legion of demons that had taken over him soon ensured that he lost everything; he had lost hope and was only living like a kite tossed helter-skelter by the winds without the will power to take redemptive decisions.

During a Sunday service, while the evangelists were leading Mass Prayer, the anointing was so hot that Mr Simone could not stand the fire. He had tried to heed the advice of a voice which had told him to run away when the power of God located him. Like a bush pig sniffing through the gutters, Mr Simone manifested the demonic influence under which his life had been kept. The demons spoke through him in turns, explaining how they had ruined his life: “We are many…I met him at the shop side and destroyed him…his marriage has problems, problems everyday…” He was eventually delivered through the power in the name of Jesus Christ.

Testifying with an intermittent outbreak of uncontrollable tears, Mr Simone lamented the torment he suffered in the hands of those evil spirits and how they had almost destroyed himm if not for God’s intervention at The SCOAN. Radiating the inestimable joy of his new found freedom in Christ Jesus, he thanked God for his deliverance and redemption.


Mr Emitimi Akassa Stephen is not one that would step out of his house without praying and ministering the Morning Water on himself and his entire family. He also has the Morning Sticker on his vehicle’s windscreen at every point in time. While driving, in the company of five other passengers some days back, his brakes had failed on the highway and the devil was already celebrating the havoc that would befall them. In the face of that chaotic scenario, Mr Stephen summoned the courage to call on the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua to come to their rescue. As the vehicle sped on without a break, it somersaulted before crashing into another vehicle. But none of the passengers, including Mr Stephen, was hurt.

Testifying in company of his wife and expressing his gratitude to God for protecting them from danger, Mr Stephen observed that it was incredible the way God saved their lives, going by the magnitude of damage on both his vehicle and the one it crashed into. According to him, onlookers were shocked to discover that no one lost his life in an accident that looked so ghastly. He attributed the miracle to his constant ministration of the Morning Water and the use of the Morning Sticker on the windscreen of his vehicle. He urged everyone to believe in God and focus on Him as the only solution to their problems.


Mr Loly Shalishali is a DR Congo national residing in Canada. For fourteen years, he was stuck in alcoholism to the extent that he would use all of his salary to drink and later resort to regret. His drinking was daily; from Monday to Sunday. It was a destructive routine that sapped not only his finances but his spiritual life. He was defenceless in the hands of the spirit of alcoholism and had no idea how to set himself free. Unhappy with the perilous turn his life was taking, he became sober and started nurturing the urge to get close to God. A friend would eventually introduce him to Emmanuel TV.MR LOLY SHALISHALI

One day, after getting himself soaked in booze, he was at home watching Emmanuel TV and was moved by the prayers going on at that particular moment. The man of God said that distance was not a barrier and urged viewers all over the world to touch the screen of their TVs. As soon as he touched the screen of his TV, he found himself on the ground. After that experience, all efforts he made to drink did not go down well with him. Within weeks, the urge to drink had completely left him. As he continued to pray via Emmanuel TV, things he could not achieve in fourteen years came to him in a matter of months. His dream of travelling abroad came to fruition after the UN resettlement programme selected him to travel to Canada. His visa was granted without the usual hassles involved. By the time he arrived in Canada, he got an office job he never applied for through divine connection. His quest for another child also materialised after he ministered the Morning Water. His wife would subsequently deliver another baby boy to the glory of God. Mr Shalishali urged people all over the world, especially those struggling with any form of substance abuse, to seek God for their total freedom.


Mr and Mrs Marcel Anarah are Nigerians residing in Germany. For many years, they had suffered from the problem of barrenness due to some medical conditions. While her husband had low sperm count, Mrs Anarah was diagnosed with fibroid. As they continued to search for solutions without results, they were introduced to Emmanuel TV. Upon watching the channel, their faith was rekindled with the level of yoke-breaking miracles that they observed on the channel.MR & MRS MARCEL IFEANYI ANARAH Having been convinced that God is truly at The SCOAN, they came down to Nigeria to visit the Arena of Liberty.

At The SCOAN, they were placed on the Prayer Line where they received prayers and were given the Morning Water. On their return to Germany, husband and wife continued to minister the Morning Water while calling on the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua to answer their prayer. In a matter of months, Mrs Anarah became pregnant and went on to deliver a baby girl safely to the glory of the Most High. Testifying in high spirits and gratitude to God, the couple advised people all over the world to run to God no matter the level of their problems.


Mr Abuh Adama is a retired Assistant Director with the State Security Service of Nigeria. The Kogi state indigene is currently a Security Consultant to many state governments. By every world standard, he is an accomplished security expert with thirty five years experience. But he had serious spiritual issues to contend with in his family. His businesses suffered collapse. His son, who used to be a passionate Christian evangelist in school, suddenly became a drug and alcohol addict after graduation. The other son had graduated from school for ten years without a job to show it. His daughter’s graduation was marred by allegations from the university that she had carry-over courses to cover. The issue dragged on endlessly. Troubled by his children’s cases, Mr Adama decided to visit The SCOAN in the company of his children.MR ADAMS ABUH & FAMILY

Though the journey was almost truncated by the family idol which tried to discourage the father through his son’s careless utterances, Mr Adama ensured through prayer that he stepped into the Arena of Liberty. At The SCOAN, reprieve came the way of Mr Adama during the Morning Water ministration. As the Morning Water was being ministered in Jesus’ name, Mr Adama fell under the anointing and began to manifest the demon that had been tormenting his family. The demon identified itself as a family idol and confessed to be behind the family’s myriad problems. It confessed to be the one destroying the lives and careers of his children. The family idol also confessed to be the one behind his broken marriage and many sundry challenges facing the family. As the evangelist ministered the Morning Water on Mr Adama, the idol, which was apparently under bombardment from the fire of the Holy Ghost, succumbed and was cast out of Mr Adama.

After his deliverance, things have changed for Mr Adama and his children. The mighty hand of God has indeed wiped away the many tears of anguish he had wept in the past. His children’s jobs and careers have now been restored even as his own life has taken a promising turn for the best. Thanking God for redeeming his family from the wicked idol, Mr Adama urged people all over the world to put their trust in God.


Mrs Fatmata Kargbo is a civil servant from Sierra Leone. For over ten years, she had used glasses to read. One day while watching Emmanuel TV from her Freetown residence, she was impressed with the deliverance of a particular brother from Cameroon and decided to join the Mass Prayer from the comfort of her home by placing her hand on the screen of the TV. With a very strong faith, as soon as her hand touched the screen of the TV, she realised she could see well without glasses. Since that day in 2012, she has not used her glasses anymore.MRS FATMATA KAGBO

Mrs Kargbo returned to The SCOAN for thanksgiving and received the Morning Water. By the time she went back to her country, she continued to minister the Morning Water and to use her Morning Sticker. She also fasted on several occasions. Then, came the notice of examination for civil servants who were eyeing promotion to the next level. Before she went for the exams, she ministered the Morning Water and placed the Morning Sticker in her answer sheets. After the exams, she came out with flying colours and was promoted to the position of Permanent Secretary in the Sierra-Leonean Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Thanking God for her healing and promotion, Mrs Kargbo also testified to the great works God did for her country through Prophet T.B. Joshua who sent a consignment of the Morning Water through a chartered jet to the Ebola-affected areas of Sierra Leone in August 2014. The man of God also made a cash donation of US$50,000. According to Mrs Kargbo, after the ministration of the Morning Water in the Ebola-affected regions, the disease disappeared finally from those regions to the glory of God.
