The glory of God was felt in the atmosphere as congregants expressed gratitude to God in different ways. Through songs of praise and worship coupled with the testimonies, God’s goodness in their lives was declared with joy and gracefulness. The SCOAN Sunday service of August 7, 2016, above every other thing, opened the eyes of all Christians to the fact that they are more than they see themselves. This eye opener came with the thought-provoking message of Evangelist Chloe tilted A PURPOSE LARGER THAN YOURSELF.

EVANGELIST CHLOEEvangelist Chloe reminded Christians of their true identity as children of God and how some have always short-changed themselves by dwelling on themselves and the situations around them instead of focusing on Christ Jesus, the author and finisher of their faith. “When a little hard time comes, we get overwhelmed and feel as if the end has come,” she submitted, insisting that “the only way to see life clearly is to focus on Christ alone.” She enlightened Christians further on their true identity in Christ Jesus, stressing that they are not ordinary as they have always seen themselves among the crowd. “We are called not to be among the masses out there who move without direction,” she posited.

She also called on Christians to attune themselves to the fact that by His death on the Cross of Calvary, they are redeemed. She said, “The only way to feel good about yourself is to believe and accept what Jesus has done for you on the Cross.” Alluding to the story of Job who held on and focused on God, in spite of all the calamities that befell him, Evangelist Chloe maintained that a man’s heart is what his thoughts are. In other words, the more we ponder over our situation, the more we get dejected and allow the devil to torment us more and more. Job was able to overcome his calamities with the latter glory that came in a hundred-fold because all along, he never lost his focus on God.

Concluding, she left the following advice for Christians all over the world – “Just as satan loses no time in plotting against us, we too should lose no time in committing ourselves to God.”



MR & MRS MAGNUS ORDUTroubled by a spiritual husband, Mrs Ordu’s marriage was threatened by barrenness. All her human efforts to explain the reason she was unable to conceive yielded no answers. It was by the time she started watching Emmanuel TV that it dawned on her clearly that the spirit husband was behind all the predicaments that had taken over her marriage like weeds in the soil. As she continued watching Emmanuel TV in company of her husband, her faith grew in leaps and bounds. Before the couple realised it, they had embraced coming to The SCOAN as the ultimate decision.

Mrs Ordu visited The SCOAN on September 5th, 2014 when Prophet T.B. Joshua was prophesying to the sick during a Sunday service. According to her, while the man of God was prophesying to another woman who had issues with fruit of the womb, she placed her hands on her belly and claimed the prophecy. Mrs Ordu received the Morning Water and proceeded to minister it at home alongside her husband. As she continued to minister the Morning Water, she discovered that all the symptoms that characterised her condition were giving way gradually and within the same week of her visit to The SCOAN, she became pregnant. All those evil dreams in which her sanitary pads appeared and the strange movements in her body gave way for good.

A visit to The SCOAN coupled with the ministration of the Morning Water brought about the miracle they had been looking for over the years. Mr and Mrs Ordu are today proud parents of a baby girl christened Deborah Ordu. “Believing is our connection. When you believe, you receive,” said Mrs Ordu, as she shared her testimony with the congregation.

In the same vein, Mr Ordu who is a Chartered Accountant also testified to his promotion after several years of stagnation. From an ordinary Accounting Officer, he was elevated to a Regional Manager after many nights of prayers and ministering the Morning Water. The couple are also blessed with a good car.


Mr and Mrs Uzoegbu were not the happiest of parents. Their daughter’s educational performance had been punctuated by recurrent illness – malaria, body pains, headache and weakness. Her attendance in school became very irregular. She would spend one day in school and the next in the hospital. Getting an expert paediatrician by her father to look into her case could not help the situation. Being ardent viewers of the Emmanuel TV channel, the parents decided to contact a family friend who worships at The SCOAN to get them the Morning Water.MISS GRACE UZOEGBU & PARENTS

As soon as they received the Morning Water and started ministering it on their daughter, the debilitating symptoms she was having started disappearing. She became strong and was able to sit for her exams. When the results were released, young Grace came out tops both in her class and in the entire school. She also received three different awards in English, Mathematics and Science. The Nigerian couple, residing in Ivory Coast with their daughter, were full of joy as they testified to the goodness of God in the life of their daughter. Thanking God during their testimony, Mr Uzoegbu left the following advice to people all over the world: “Whenever you are stranded, run to Jesus. He is the only solution.”

On her own part, Miss Grace Uzoegbu told congregants that after she ministered the Morning Water, she realised that a heavy burden left her while the answers to the exam questions she was writing then came easily. “Pray as if it all depends on God and work as if it all depends on you,” she advised youths.


MRS FAUSTINA MENSAHMrs Faustina Mensah was diagnosed with cephalalgia and somatoform disorder – an ailment characterised by severe headaches and insomnia. According to the Ghanaian national, most of the medication she was given by doctors ended up compounding her situation. In a desperate search for solution, she had encountered a friend who introduced her to Emmanuel TV. After witnessing the massive demonstration of God’s power at the Arena of Liberty through Emmanuel TV, Mrs Mensah decided to visit The SCOAN.

Upon coming to The SCOAN, she received the Morning Water. When she returned to Ghana, she continued to minister it in prayer, in Jesus’ name. The effect was almost immediate. As she ministered the Morning Water, the pain and other horrible symptoms that had threatened her job and career left her. She insisted on seeing her doctors who also confirmed that the sickness had gone. Thanking God for rescuing and healing her from an ailment that had held her down for two years, Mrs Faustina Mensah advised people all over the world in the following words: “When you are sick, don’t run from Jesus; run to Jesus. He heals all manner of sicknesses.”


Mrs Pat was troubled. Her son’s health was in a very terrible state. Having painful urination, abdominal pains and passing blood through urine, young Oguguo was diagnosed with bilateral urethral blockage – a condition that required urgent medical attention abroad. The doctors in Nigeria, having tried their best with no solution in sight, advised the mother to look for money so he could be taken to India for treatment. After reaching out for help, she was able to raise money for the trip. Though they went and returned from India, they later discovered that his condition had become worse after the medical trip. Young Oguguo reacted to some of the drugs he received in India and was in serious pain. He developed other complications that affected his walking, sight, heart and other major organs.MASTER OGUGUA & FAMILY

When he returned to school, he became isolated as other students avoided him because of the uncontrollable urine that frequently flowed out of him. The lad was seriously disappointed by the events that had followed his return from India. His mother’s encounter with Emmanuel TV changed the story of his life. After watching the different awe-inspiring miracles on the anointed channel, Mrs Pat decided to visit the Arena of Liberty with her ailing son. At The SCOAN, they received the Morning Water and returned to their home. After ministering the Morning Water for a while, the symptoms that ravaged Oguguo’s health ceased. Even the embarrassing and uncontrollable urination stopped. Mrs Pat returned to her doctors and they confirmed through several tests that her son was healed. Today, Oguguo is going about his educational pursuits with peace of mind. No more troubles! “Don’t be afraid to come to God. No situation is bigger than God,” he advised people all over the world.


Mr and Mrs Fanwell Zulu were on their way to their building site when tragedy struck. The Zambian couple had hired a truck loaded with stones which ran out of oil on the road. As the truck operators were trying to refill the tank, they lifted the cabin to enable them to have access to the oil tank. Mr Zulu went to help the truck operators while Mrs Zulu remained in the car behind the truck. She picked up her Faith Bracelet and began to meditate. “Lord, take more of me and give me more of You”. At a point, instead of continuing with the meditation, “Take more of me,” she began to meditate, “Take more of him.” Unknown to her, her husband would soon pass through the valley of the shadow of death.

As she continued her meditation, a loud bang sent her out of the car. The lifted cabin had collapsed on its own, trapping someone underneath. People began to gather, screaming and calling for help. As Mrs Zulu got to the scene of the incident, she began to minister the Morning Water, in the name of Jesus Christ. Suddenly, a vehicle parked at the scene of the incident and three men came out. Strangely, without talking to anyone, they walked straight onto the scene, lifted up the cabin which had been an impossible task for all who had earlier attempted it and the trapped person was released. To her greatest surprise, it was her husband that was trapped under the collapsed cabin.

The three men carried her unconscious husband into the car parked behind the truck and instructed Mrs Zulu to wind down the window so that Mr Zulu could get some ventilation. As Mrs Zulu prepared to drive her husband to hospital, she looked around for the three men but strangely did not see them. While under observation in hospital, it was discovered that Mr Zulu had a Good Morning Sticker in his wallet. Mrs Zulu continued to minister the Morning water to her husband at the hospital. The following morning, an x-ray was done and to the surprise of everyone present, against all permutations, Mr Zulu whose head was trapped under the collapsed cabin sustained no single injury and nothing was found to be wrong with his system.

MR&MRS FANWELL ZULUThanking God during their testimony at The SCOAN, the couple told congregants how praying with the Morning Water and Sticker had saved them from sorrow and pain. According to Mrs Zulu, God used the mediums to save her husband’s life. A visibly elated Mr Zulu, who described the mediums of the Morning Water and Sticker as God’s Hammer, urged people all over the world to repose their trust in God.


The SCOAN Sunday Service of 31st July, 2016 was a special package from the Holy Spirit. From the songs of the choir to the wonderful testimonies, the presence of God was demonstrated beyond doubt. Congregants had the opportunity to watch clips of the Morning Water ministration during the just concluded South Korea, 2016 Pastors’ Conference with Prophet T.B. Joshua. They witnessed the power of God at work, breaking yokes, healing different kinds of ailments and delivering souls from the captivity of satan.

EVANGELIST  EDWARDEvangelist Edward animated the atmosphere with evangelical zest when he delivered his edifying message titled LEARN OBEDIENCE. He reminded Christians that whenever they are faced with challenging situations, they always have two options. One is to act from their own human frailties or to obey and abide by the Spirit of God: “But in the moment of decision, you are presented with two options: to act out of character and react badly, emotionally or intellectually to the weight of your situation or to trust the Holy Spirit in the midst of your challenges and respond by the Spirit. You can choose to learn offence, anger and disobedience or you can choose to learn obedience to the will of God.”

Citing the sufferings of Christ and how He obeyed and abided by the will of His father, Evangelist Edward observed that a Christian’s character is shaped by the difficulties he encounters as he journeys through life with all its ups and downs: “The way a Christian’s character grows through obedience is by facing difficulties and dealing with problems. As a Christian, what you are going through serves a useful purpose: To form and strengthen your character and to prepare you for the eternal glory that lies ahead.”

He concluded by encouraging Christians to accept and embrace every difficult challenge as an opportunity to pass through God’s refinement process, stating that many have missed the glory ahead because of their refusal to accept the process: “Whatever situation you are passing through is an opportunity for you to learn obedience to the will of God. However, many of us are rejecting the process, the method, the very instrument God is using to refine us. This is why we remain as we are. That is why all we go through seems to be wasted. We will continue to repeat the test until we learn our lesson and pass it.”



MISS CHIKODI NORAH IWUAfter failing her Bar Final exams at the Nigerian Law School, Abuja campus in 2015, Miss Chikodi Iwu realised that her failure was not ordinary. Recalling that her family had had a pedigree of backwardness and limitation in progress, the picture of what was going on became clearer to her. No one in her entire family had ever attained success academically. It took her eleven years to gain admission into university and after graduating, an evil tormenting spirit had vowed never to allow her to become a Barrister. That failure at the law school in 2015 became a sore point in her life as all subsequent efforts she made resulted in disappointment.

As soon as she started preparing for a resit of the exams, all those who supported her in the past abandoned her, thinking she was an incurable failure. She had to beg to be able to survive and faced serious accommodation problems. As the resit exams approached, she could not concentrate. Frustrated by different worries, she had to run to a pastor who was a staff of the Nigerian Law School in Abuja. The pastor revealed to her that her problem was from her village and advised her to visit The SCOAN, stressing that she doesn’t need to see the man of God in person before her situation would be turned around.

Visiting The SCOAN during a Sunday service, Chikodi witnessed God’s power as soon as Mass Prayer started. Immediately Prophet T.B Joshua raised his voice to lead prayer, Miss Iwu started screaming and shaking uncontrollably, attracting the attention of ushers who held her while the evil spirit spoke through her. The evil spirit confessed that it had wanted to kill her and destroy every good thing in her life, including her educational aspirations. Taking authority in the name of Jesus, the man of God commanded the evil spirit out of her. Delivered and redeemed from the oppression of the devil, Miss Iwu received two Good Morning Stickers from Prophet T.B. Joshua.

Wrapping the Good Morning Stickers around her writing pens, she returned to Abuja and unwrapped them as she sat for the exams. To God be the glory, after the exams, she came out in flying colours. Her results qualified her to be called to the Nigerian bar. A dream of eighteen years finally came to fruition after her encounter with the power of God at The SCOAN. Today, Miss Chikodi Iwu is addressed as Barrister Chikodi Iwu – a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria. Thanking God during her testimony, she told congregants that she is the first in her family to break the so-called jinx of attaining university level and graduating as a qualified lawyer. She promised to serve God diligently.


Mr Ifeanyi was deep into fetish engagements right from his childhood days when he was twelve years old. His grandfather, a witch doctor initiated him into witchcraft when he took him to his shrine and instructed him never to allow the water in a particular pot get dry. Days later, his grandfather became ill and demanded to see his father in order to hand over the affairs of the dark arts to him. But when Ifeanyi’s father arrived at the hospital where the old man was ailing away, the old man denied him, saying he was not the one to take over the shrine from him.

When Ifeanyi arrived at the hospital, he met his grandmother, who on seeing him rushed to go and call the nurse. But while she left the hospital room, his grandfather had laid hands on his head – an act that sent cold shivers down his whole body. After that episode, he fell asleep only to be woken up by nurses later. He was asked to go home, unknown to him that his grandfather had passed on. But the laying of hands on his head meant a lot even though he did not know. When it became public knowledge that his grandfather was dead, a meeting of witchdoctors was convened to deliberate on their member’s burial. Before his corpse was buried, Ifeanyi was given white powder by the witchdoctors to administer on grandfather’s face.

MR IFEANYI ENYESIOBIAfter the burial, Ifeanyi continued to carry out the instructions the old man had given to him before he died. But he would soon be faced with a dilemma as his father insisted on destroying the shrine, saying it was the cause of the animosity between their family and people of the village. Ifeanyi’s father actually came with anointed oil which he handed over to his son to minister on the shrine before it would be destroyed. Unknown to his father, Ifeanyi had removed some fetish items from the shrine and had kept them in his own room.

Ifeanyi would go ahead to destroy the shrine as directed by his father. While digging to uproot some of the evil pots buried under the soil, a bird and smoke flew out from one of the pots. An enraged Ifeanyi told his father that he should be ready to face the consequences of that action. When the witchdoctors discovered that the shrine had been destroyed on the directive of Ifeanyi’s father, they afflicted him with poison and he died. After the death of his father, the witchdoctors regrouped and tried to retrieve a fetish staff from him. Ifeanyi would not be cowed into releasing the staff given to him by his late grandfather. His defiance attracted their wrath as they fought him through all sorts of demonic manipulations.

After undergoing all sorts of spiritual fortification in different shrines and through initiations, Ifeanyi managed to withstand the fetish battle between him and his enemies. On many occasions, the river goddess controlling one of the rivers where he was initiated would appear to him in dreams giving him evil counsel. She had told him what to do to become very powerful and had also given him a live fish to swallow. Ifeanyi eventually swallowed a live fish physically and later started carrying masquerades from village to village. He became so popular that people consulted him for spiritual help. Truck drivers consulted him for amulets to prevent robbery attacks and accidents on the road. Women who were desperate to marry also came and received ‘solution’.

All efforts to neutralise his evil powers through prayers proved abortive as he used some fetish items to cause heavy sleeping among the ‘prayer warriors’ whenever they gathered to pray against him. Ifeanyi became a very notorious witchdoctor that had many evil powers. He wore some around his waist while others were in different parts of his body. He continued to live with his evil powers, tormenting and oppressing people until a certain man appeared in his dream and kept telling him, “Son, follow me.” The man and his voice kept recurring to him in a mysterious dream-like experience until he found himself in Lagos at The SCOAN being bombarded by the Spirit of God in the Morning Water medium. The evangelist commanded the evil spirit in him to speak and it revealed so many horrible things it had done to Mr Ifeanyi’s life. Said it, among other things, “No man can bring him down. No masquerade in the land of the east can bring him down.” Through the power in the blood of Jesus, Mr Ifeanyi was brought down with his back on the floor while the evil spirit was cast out completely. During his testimony, a completely transformed Mr Ifeanyi said he has surrendered his life to Christ and will continue to be devoted to the Word of God. He advised people in the following words, “There is no other way; Jesus Christ is the way the truth and the life.”

For four years, Mr Acha Vincent Njeok was out of employment. The former IT Officer in the Cameroonian Ministry of Sports and Physical Education faced a lot of difficulties trying to keep body and soul together. In the midst of all the hardship, he had encountered a friend who just returned from Nigeria. He asked his friend if he had visited The SCOAN and went further to demand the Morning Water from him. His friend asked him to come over the next day. Getting to his friend’s house, they prayed together. Thereafter, his friend asked him to buy a bottle of mineral water so he could minister some drops of the Morning Water into it for him.

MR ACHA VINCENT  NJEOKAfter getting the bottle of mineral water, Mr Njeok received just three drops of the Morning Water into the beverage. With that, he continued to pray that his sacking should be reversed. In February this year, he was recalled to his place of work and entrusted with more responsibility as Chief of the Department of Maintenance. He was also recommended to travel to Europe for more training on the job. Thanking God for the restoration of his job, promotion and recommendation for foreign travel, Mr Njeok also testified to his healing from a strange and debilitating tumor (that had developed around his anal region) through the same Morning Water medium. “I advise viewers that if you have the Morning Water, you can do anything. With the Morning Water, you can cross the oceans by faith, in Jesus’ name!”, he said.

The SCOAN Sunday Service of July 24, 2016 demonstrated the fact that the works of God are beyond the barriers of space and time. While Evangelist Joseph engaged the minds of congregants with his message titled CAPTURE YOUR THOUGHTS FOR THE GLORY OF GOD, the man of God was in faraway South Korea doing what he was born to do.

IMG_2099Prophet T.B. Joshua was received in Seoul by a crowd that had waited for hours at the airport to welcome him to the South Korea 2016 Crusade. Day 1 and Day 2 of the crusade witnessed a heroic manifestation of God’s power as the sick were healed, the captives and oppressed were set free and the broken-hearted were uplifted.


Meanwhile to sum up his message, Evangelist Joseph urged Christians all over the world to guide and guard their thoughts in order not to allow the devil a space in their hearts. According to him, the life of a Christian will only attract more positivity when he or she thinks positively. “Every time you allow yourself to think positively and talk positively, you act positively”, he said. He acknowledged the common dilemma of choice that faces Christians but insists that there are no neutral thoughts. He stated that our thoughts are either of faith or of doubt. According to him, when our thoughts are of faith, they become great and produce great results – “Great thoughts produce great decisions but bad thoughts produce wrong decisions.”


Concluding, he urged Christians to manage their minds in order to be able to attract the kind of positive reality they desire. “Manage your mind because what happens in your mind will happen in time,” he advised.

During the Morning Water ministration, evangelists unleashed divine wrath on the kingdom of darkness as many were delivered from the grip of evil spirits and all sorts of afflictions in the name of Jesus Christ. Many who had received their own miracles also came out to testify to the goodness and glory of God in their lives.


The problem of bedwetting had ravaged the life of Mrs Obiageli Onuoha’s son right from birth. The lad had a horrible time with that problem and had to move from one hospital to the other in search of a medical solution that never really came. Even in Dublin, Ireland where they reside, all efforts to stop the problem proved abortive. A special machine which had an alarm system made for him could not tame the evil yoke as he usually slept too deep. The alarm system ended up being a waste of time and effort. Mrs Onuoha was not happy with the turn of events and decided to try other options. But the more her human reasoning tried to find a way out, the worse his situation became. He continued bedwetting to the extent that he lost two important excursion opportunities in his school. Trips to Ghana and Spain organised by his school eluded him because of his constant challenge.

At age 14, Bobby was still battling with the problem of bedwetting much to the disappointment of his mother. Having traversed different landscapes in search of solution without finding any, Mrs Onuoha decided to visit The SCOAN last week. During that Sunday, Bobby received the anointed touch of the man of God and immediately fell to the ground. After that encounter, he had said to his mother, “Mummy, I felt something leave my body as the man of God touched me.” Since that day, Bobby has not wet the bed. He now enjoys peaceful sleep. The yoke of bedwetting is definitely gone forever. Expressing her gratitude, Mrs Onuoha marvelled at the incomprehensible power and ways of God. She advised parents all over the world to draw closer to Him.


After a romantic misadventure that resulted in a pregnancy which she aborted during her secondary school days, Mrs Eucharia Okoye never knew that a destructive growth had started raising its ugly head in her womb. When it was time to have a child for her husband, doctors discovered, after several tests, that the growth had continued to develop in her womb preventing her from conceiving. The only offer they could make was to suggest a surgery. It was at the brink of being operated upon that her husband asked her to leave the hospital and get ready for a visit to The SCOAN.

At The SCOAN, Mrs Okoye received the Morning Water. She continued to minister it to herself, praying to God to flush out the growth from her body. After a while, she returned to the hospital for a test. The doctor that conducted the test wondered what had gone wrong. “Who is that doctor that wanted to operate you? I can’t see any growth in your womb. There’s nothing growing in your womb!” he exclaimed. How an 18-year-old growth suddenly disappeared can only be an act of divine intervention.

As she testified last Sunday in company of her sisters-in-law, Mrs Okoye bubbled with so much joy as she flaunted her pregnancy for the congregation to see the work of God. She encouraged people facing her type of situation to come to The SCOAN and receive their own miracle. She advised them to have faith in God and come to Him, irrespective of their past mistakes.

MRS OBEN EVELINE (3)Mrs Oben Eveline Ayuk laboured with heart failure and peptic ulcer for six years. The Cameroonian visited many hospitals in her native country but could not really get any respite. She suffered from severe weakness and had difficulty eating food and drinking water. She virtually lived on medication all through those six years. The doctors advised her against eating starchy foods. They also told her to avoid foods high in cholesterol. In an effort to normalise her lifestyle as much as possible, they offered her an option of temporary relief at a very high price. She would have to provide a whopping 4 million francs to have a special instrument known as a battery inserted into her heart as a palliative measure.

Thinking that was the end of her life here on earth, she rushed down to The SCOAN and received the Morning Water. As she returned to Cameroon, she continued to minister it amidst prayers. Gradually, all those debilitating symptoms started giving way to renewed vigour and better well-being. She became strong once again and could do all those things she could not do before now. She now eats good food and drinks water, irrespective of the quantity. To confirm God’s marvellous work in her life, she returned to the hospital and did some tests. When the results were released, they showed that both the heart problem and peptic ulcer were no more.

MRS OBEN EVELINE (2)Testifying at The SCOAN where congregants expressed their joy for her healing, Mrs Ayuk downed a full bottle of water to prove that she is now completely well. She advised people with similar conditions to seek the face of God.

MRS FOLASHADE JEHOVASON & HUSBANDMrs Folashade Jehovahson was diagnosed with multiple fibroids after she had experienced abdominal discomfort. After confirming the existence of the abnormal growths in her womb, her doctors had suggested surgery but she rejected it and declared that she had a God who would heal her without collecting a dime. She visited The SCOAN and received the Morning Water. Apart from ministering it during prayers, she would use it to cook and bathe. A few months later, her stomach which was previously hard started becoming soft. She knew that something miraculous had taken place.

Returning to the hospital for further tests, it was discovered that the multiple fibroids had melted away like snowflakes in the sun. The result of the tests showed that the fibroids were completely gone. Testifying in company of her husband, Mrs Jehovahson advised people all over the world, especially women facing her type of predicament, to run to God as He is the only One that can truly heal them. On his own part, her husband, Mr Olayinka Jehovahson had the following words for people of God – “For all Christians who centre their lives on Jesus Christ, better is not good enough; the best is yet to come.”

MRS MARY ONUMONUMrs Mary Onumonu, with all her qualifications, worked as an ordinary classroom teacher for nine years. Her aspiration was to work in a higher institution as a lecturer. But because of rising unemployment, she had no other choice than to accept the secondary school job. With her Master of Business Administration, Post-Graduate Diploma in Education, Post-Graduate Diploma in Management and a Higher National Diploma, she earned the same salary as people who had only a first degree. However, in spite of that unpalatable experience, Mrs Onumonu had a strong belief in her heart that one day, she would attain that height she had been aspiring to. She had even told her colleagues that her rise to glory was just a matter of time.

She visited The SCOAN and received the Morning Water which she ministered daily, in the name of Jesus. Eventually, a new institute in her native Bayelsa State, Nigeria took off – The International Institute of Tourism and Hospitality. She applied as a lecturer to the new institute and was called for an interview. After the interview, she was selected and was appointed as a lecturer. It didn’t end there! She was also made the Head of Department of Business Management and Public Administration. Testifying in style and exuding glorious confidence, Mrs Onumonu advised people, especially teachers who are under-employed not to lose hope but to trust in God.


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


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

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

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



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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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



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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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



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

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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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



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


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

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

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


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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



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





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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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





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

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

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


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

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

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

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


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

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

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


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



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

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


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



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


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

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

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


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


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


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


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

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

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



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


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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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



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


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

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

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

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


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


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

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