PTBJThe verve and cheerful aura radiated by worshippers depicted how precious they all hold The SCOAN Live Sunday Service in their hearts. The atmosphere was fresh as the ever-vibrant choir edified the congregants in the auditorium and overflow congregations with their edifying renditions, brimming with heavenly zest.

Evangelist Annette’s message was deep and incisive, like a precious EVANGELIST ANNETTEseed sown into fertile soil. Titled AT THE LORD’S FEET, the message highlighted the nature of man in relation with his or her ability to make the right choices, bearing in mind the fact that God even gave His only begotten Son for our salvation as Christians. Have we made the most of that divine privilege? She urged Christians to make the wisest decision of establishing an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ: “When God created man, He gave him the right to life. Within that right was discretion. In other words, Jesus Christ gave man a mind and the ability to choose between right and wrong. In life, man is given the freedom to choose from the many alternatives that surround him. What choice have you made concerning Jesus Christ? Have you chosen to make Him your Lord and personal Saviour or otherwise? Life’s biggest decision is what you do with Jesus Christ”.

Evangelist Annette further shed light on the vanity of human wishes, attractions and aspirations. She observed that the material fancies and attractions of the world are not worth living for, compared to the everlasting joy and glory inherent in a life dedicated to the service of God: “Today, many make the world their heart’s delight. Many embrace the world desperate to be satisfied by it. But what we need is in God’s Word. No matter how many years you work or strive trying to acquire wealth – the best car, beautiful house, children; you can never be satisfied by them. Satisfaction is not about having children, money or other worldly possessions; you have to experience God. Until you experience God, there will be dissatisfaction – a sense of hunger to know what life is all about, a desire to know what happens after life is over”. 


The glory of God endures forever; so do the wonderful songs of thanksgiving He continues to put on the lips of His children. God is truly doing wondrous works at The SCOAN. The following testimonies are some selected from a multitude to inspire your faith and prepare you for your own miracle which is already on the way in Jesus’ name. No matter the situation, God’s hands are not too short to locate you.

Engineer Abijor Obukowho, who graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering, had applied for many jobs but was told that he lacked the necessary experience as an Engineer. Due to the high unemployment rate, he constantly met with disappointment and this gave him frustration. Having visited The SCOAN, he ministered the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name and soon after applied online for a government position as an Engineer. He travelled to Abuja and among 7,000 people, to his greatest surprise and joy, he was selected for the job! Standing before the congregation, he happily displayed the letter of employment.

Advising people about the Anointing Water, he said, “It will put you at an advantage. It will locate you at the place of your destiny”.


As if eight years of career stagnation was not bad enough, Sergeant Leonard Ekeh was also tormented with a never-ending addiction to alcohol, smoking and womanizing. While his colleagues received their due promotions as time went by, it was a different story for Sergeant Leonard Ekeh who drowned his frustration in ceaseless drinking, smoking and chasing different women. One day, his father introduced him to Emmanuel TV and gave him a bottle of Anointing Water. These changed his life forever.

He ministered the Anointing Water and prayed in Jesus’ name and truly, things took a turn for the better. He experienced deliverance and suddenly realized that he no longer felt the desire to smoke, drink or chase women.  He was also asked to go on a peacekeeping mission in Dafur, South Sudan and it was there that his promotion happened! Among all his colleagues, he was the only one promoted to the position of Staff Sergeant. Advising Christians, he said: “No matter the circumstances, believe in God. The best is yet to come”.


A Senior Inspector of Immigration in Nigeria faced shameful stagnation for seven years. Each term, after writing the normal exams for promotion, he would be greatly disappointed as his colleagues would receive promotion but he would remain at the same level year after year. On top of this crisis, he also found himself increasingly addicted to smoking cigarettes. He started smoking individual cigarettes then moved on to packs of cigarettes and then rolls of cigarettes each day. He was constantly discouraged.

Then one day his sister brought Anointing Water to him from The SCOAN. He prayed in the name of Jesus that God should break every chain holding him back from his divine life and destiny. He them ministered the Anointing Water on the answer sheets for his next exam. At night, after completing the exam, he had a dream in which Prophet T.B. Joshua called him and told him to go and collect his promotion letter. He woke up and shared the news with his family, who immediately gave thanks to God for the breakthrough. When he arrived at work, his boss called and told him he had been promoted from Senior Inspector of Immigration to Principle Inspector of Immigration.

Along with the promotion was his deliverance from the strong addiction to cigarette smoking. Today, he is promoted and free from cigarette to the glory of God!


Fourteen days after they had their baby boy, 4 discovered that their bundle of joy had developed a swelling on his scrotum. They took him to the hospital where the doctor diagnosed the problem as a hernia. Mrs Okeke was able to get an empty bottle of Anointing Water, refilled it with pure water and prayed in Jesus’ name. After her prayer, she ministered the Anointing Water on him and saw that the swelling was moving from his scrotum to his stomach. He later excreted and went into a deep sleep.  She checked his excreta and discovered her baby had passed out a black stone. She noticed that the symptoms he was usually having stopped and that motivated her to take him to the hospital for a test where, to the amazement of the doctors, it was confirmed that the hernia was gone and the baby had a normal pelvic scan. Mr Okeke was elated and gave glory to God for delivering their baby. They advised to Christians to trust in God and believe that whatever the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua has blessed, is anointed for breakthrough.


Emmanuel Okoro Imagine a child who could not play with his friends; a student who could not attend school. Such was the case of Emmanuel Okoro who was born with Sickle Cell Anaemia. His life consisted of falling sick, being rushed to the hospital, receiving treatment and blood, only to return home with the same weakness and lifeless limbs. His case was so severe that he could not attend classes regularly due to the extreme fatigue. When at school, he found it difficult to concentrate and impossible to play with other children. One beautiful morning, his family brought him to The SCOAN and he received prayer from Prophet T.B. Joshua.

Little did he imagine that just one prayer would bring a radical transformation to his life. When they returned to their home in Delta, Nigeria, the family immediately saw drastic changes in their son. His energy suddenly returned and did abate. He was able to bathe himself that night and started playing with friends outside. When it was time for school, he got up and got ready by himself. The days passed and he realized he had not missed any day of school and had not had to visit the hospital. Believing that their miracle had come, the family took their son back to the hospital for a test and was delighted to receive a result that showed negative to Sickle Cell Anaemia. Their son was finally free, in Jesus’ name. The Okoros advised all parents to rush their children to God whenever they face family challenges so that He will see them through.


Lance Corporal Adejumo Mutiu, a soldier in the Nigerian Army found himself in a terrible accident in Enugu, Nigeria in Lance Corporal Adejumo which he fractured his tibia and fibula. He was rushed to a hospital and from then on he could not walk. He was confined to a pair of crutches. His wife was practically doing everything for him. In the military hospital where he was being treated, he would watch Emmanuel TV and his faith grew. He decided to come to The SCOAN Prayer Line and he was prayed for by Prophet TB. Joshua. Since then, he is able to walk and has gone back to his job as a soldier in the Nigerian Army. Mrs Adejumo, wife to Corporal Mutiu Adejumo whose joy knew no bounds, shared her harrowing experience saying, “…It became a burden to me because I had to do everything for him but I thank Jesus for healing him and now things are back to normal”.


Mary Inyang from Akwa-Ibom, Nigeria, a 70 year-old Central Bank of Nigeria pensioner, shared her joy at the transformation in her life after following the instruction in righteousness of the Water Therapy. She used to experience pain in her joints, internal heat and would wake up every day tired and stiff but after the water therapy, all became a thing of the past. Now she is able to move freely like a young woman! She can sleep at night peacefully and no longer suffers from internal heat. Appreciating the man of God for this instruction that has flushed her system, she advised the youth of today, “Instead of drinking alcohol and taking tablets, listen to this instruction from God through Prophet T.B. Joshua – come close to God”.


Mrs. Stella ObiahMrs. Stella Obiah, 68 years old suffered from severe sinusitis for many years. She was no longer able to breathe through her nose but was breathing through her mouth. She complained that dust and different particles carried through the air always entered her passages and caused her pain and irritation. This was the life she was living in her old age as a result of the sinusitis. After the man of God introduced the Water Therapy, she said that she and the other members of the Old Testament Group discussed and agreed that this was the way forward for their lives. As a grandmother, she realized she had a responsibility to be a good example and began taking the Water Therapy for herself and her family. As she began drinking the water, she realized her breathing passages became clear. She no longer had to breathe through her mouth but began breathing normally through her nose. She is now free from sinusitis and advised all to keep to the instruction in righteousness from God’s servant as it is truly the secret to good health.

After the breathtaking testimonies, prophetic messages were delivered by Prophet T.B. Joshua to individuals, revealing the root cause of their problems and providing solution in Jesus’ name. The Prophet then moved to the prayer line where countless received healing and deliverance through the Word of God working in the Spirit. All received a touch as later, Prophet T.B. Joshua offered mass prayer and the congregation as a whole received the fulfilment of God’s promises in their lives. They left the service rejoicing and glorifying God for their mighty deeds, proclaiming that they would be the next to share their testimonies on Emmanuel TV!

DADDYFrom the Candle Light Service of 31st December, 2014 to the Sunday Service of 4th January, 2015, the atmosphere at The SCOAN has been spiritually intense. While the entire congregation, just like the whole world, awaited the successful cross-over into a new year, it was a great suspense of sorts. Though, we all started the journey from the very first day of 2014, not all of us have been fortunate to see the end of the year or even witness the advent of a new year. Yet, all glory and honour must be given to the Most High God who in all His omniscience, knows best.

CROWD3CROWD2The anointed message and instruction coming from the mouth of God to those present in theCROWD1 church and the myriad of viewers worldwide for the New Year was the simple Word: Good Morning. The man of God explained, “You are a plant. You need dew because you are dry. Your business needs dew, your health needs dew and your career needs dew. Dew is in the morning. Joy comes in the morning. Say Good morning my health! Good morning my business! Good morning my career! Good morning to nations, continents, the whole world – Good Morning to you all. This year you shall continue to live in the morning. When people greet you ‘Good afternoon,’ greet them ‘Good morning’. When people greet you ‘Good evening’ or ‘Good night,’ greet them ‘Good morning’. This Word is anointed for you.”CROWD4

Being the last day of the year, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua talked about DISCOVERING YOUR REAL VALUE, a message that was very timely bearing in mind the imperative significance of living within the scope of our God-given destinies. Until a person discovers him or herself, he or she will continue to wallow in ignorance and failure, without achieving God’s purpose for his/her life. The man of God had earlier told the congregation that the purity of heart was a prerequisite for expecting a trouble-free new year: “If you are expecting a new year, you must be pure in heart if not 2014; I mean the troubled year 2014 will continue in 2015. To get rid of the trouble, for you to overcome the trouble, is not a thing of the flesh. You need deliverance to overcome the trouble”.

DADDYSpeaking further on the same message at the Sunday Service of 4th January, 2015, the man of God expatiated on the essence of discovering one’s real value. According to him, our real value resides in our spirit and our willingness to surrender it to the ways of God. We cannot operate within our real values of spiritual power and authority if we allow the distractions of life take the greater part of us: “The real thing about us is our spirit. If our real thing is our spirit, our attention should be more on the spirit. You can either yield yourself to God or the devil because you are a free moral agent. God has given us discretion. I cannot just force you to get healed; I need your faith to do so. There is so much distraction. That is why we have this for you and there is an anointed word for you: Take more of me, give me more of you. The more you think about what you read, the more your spirit acts on the Word. Meditation brings revelation”. Each and every person present was given the New Anointing Sticker inscribed with the New Year message: Brethren, Good morning as a point of contact to help them open the New Year with prayer.

In conclusion, the man of God enlightened the congregation on the therapeutic dimensions of water, stressing that the spiritual and the physical must work in tandem. He explained in details how early morning intake of water helps flush the system of unwanted waste and cleanses the human body. It was a very instructive moment and the gains remain innumerable.

He moved to the Prayer Line to minister healing, deliverance and restoration to the teeming crowd that have been waiting for God’s hand upon their lives.

EVANGELIST OLAMIDEEarlier, Evangelist Olamide had engaged the minds of the congregation with her deeply edifying message – YOUR SITUATION AS A CHRISTIAN. She vividly captured the Christian life in its most realistic nature, observing that living the Christian life was not a bed of roses but one full of trials and temptations. She urged the congregation to be of good cheer even in times of trials because they are the elements that make victory worth the while when it eventually comes: “In our spiritual walk with the Lord, we have good times and hard times; a time to enjoy and a time for restraint. A time to be born, a time to grow, a time to die, a time to face persecution, a time to overcome and a time to show the proceeds of victory. A man without a situation is a man without a future. The journey to the throne is not a bed of roses but of thorns, hardship, snakes which points us to trouble and problems”. Evangelist Olamide went further to cite numerous biblical examples of God’s servants like Joseph, Moses and Daniel who faced one tribulation and the other yet the glory of God was manifested and magnified in their situations. God would always allow us to face trials just as He allowed the devil to tempt Job. Our attitude to the trial is what pushes God into restoring us even unto greater levels than we envisage.

Concluding, she urged Christians to brace up in the midst of trials and seek God’s directions no matter how hard the situation may be, stressing that whatever God says is the ultimate: “No matter how hard your situation may seem, when God manifest His strength in your weakness, you will overcome. For when you are weak then you are strong. So whatever situation you may be in, find out what is God saying through that situation because what God says is the answer. To walk with the Lord in all situations is to ask Him for direction. To ask the Lord for direction is to open our eyes of faith so that we can see the higher hand that is leading us to salvation”.


Like rivers of water that will never dry, more and more people continue to throng The SCOAN, testifying to the mighty works of God in their lives. Faith is the only thing you need to be one of those to testify to God’s wonderful works. As you read these testimonies, may your faith in God be ignited like never before for your breakthrough, in Jesus’ name. Amen.


“Mr Maphoto, we need to talk” the voice on the phone was both grim and harsh. “We have no choice but to terminate your existing contracts.” It was a message every businessman feared most – bankruptcy.


Penniless and verging on hopeless, the young South African man was at a crossroads. Courageously deciding to turn his cares into prayers, he sought the face of God after his fledgling business inexplicably nosedived to the point of financial ruin. Resolving to visit The SCOAN in Nigeria for divine intervention, he was privileged to receive the Anointing Water during his stay within the church. Upon returning to South Africa, he ministered it on a prospective business proposal he had mustered a miniscule amount to begin. Favour flowed. Several months later, an eight million rand contract was in his pocket and his fortunes had completely reversed.

“The blood that Jesus shed on the Cross of Calvary 2000 years ago still works today,” Mr Maphoto told the congregation at The SCOAN. “God is working through the Anointing Water mightily!”


Frantic. Hectic. Manic. Johanna Matli’s work schedule in the radio and television industry left little time for her family, let alone her relationship with God. As her work levels rose, so did her stress and blood pressure. The result was her health dwindling dramatically, ending in two partial strokes and a medical diagnosis of hypertensive heart disease.JOHANNA MATLI [AW TESTIMONY]

Taking medicine daily and a familiar face at the local clinic for blood pressure checks, her entire life forcibly revolved around her health challenges which kept worsening. As a viewer of Emmanuel TV, when Johanna heard Prophet T.B. Joshua’s instruction to visit the families of the Martyrs Of Faith, she considered her schedule and reluctantly concluded she could not find the time to engage in such.

However, the repeated call from Prophet T.B. Joshua to care for them continually bombarded her heart to the point where the South African decided to make some sacrifices. She visited the family members of the Martyrs Of Faith, believing by faith that obedience to this Divine instruction would work wonders in her life. After her first visit, while engaging in her regular clinical check-up, Johanna got the shock of her life!

“Madam, your blood pressure has reduced from 220/ 170 to 130/90,” the surprised doctor informed her. “What did you do?” Holding up her medical reports confirming her miraculous healing before The SCOAN congregation, Mrs Matli testified that her health had transformed and her priorities shifted toward Heavenly things by her obedience to this instruction. “It is a wonderful thing to create time to help others,” she concluded. “Please, make sure you obey Prophet T.B. Joshua’s instructions in righteousness.”


“There is a lady here with the spirit of a dog,” the prophecy rang forth. Totanang’s heart skipped a beat. Prophet T.B. Joshua was talking to her. Taking a step forward from her seat towards the altar of The SCOAN, she suddenly lost all consciousness of the following sequence of events. It was only when a clip of her deliverance was replayed that she saw herself barking and gesticulating like a dog as the evil spirit within her was exposed by the prophecy and subsequent prayer.

Rising up after the deliverance,TOTANANG KEBOPELWANG Totanang’s life never remained the same! Upon returning to Botswana, the spirit of anger that had ruined her relationships and rendered her jobless stopped. Her journeys from sangomas to spiritualists ended and a renewed desire to serve God and pursue her education was born. To her greatest surprise, as she continued to minister the Anointing Water, after five years of joblessness, Mrs. Kebopelwang was offered a job in the Botswana Telecommunications Corporation, a position she never even applied for. The job enabled her to finish her studies abroad in Swaziland – something she had never dreamed was a possibility prior to her deliverance. Her word of advice was concise: “Whenever you receive the Anointing Water, minister it in faith – that is the only way it can work in your life!”


Fervency welled within her heart. As Prophet T.B. Joshua encouraged viewers around the world to reach out to the relatives of the martyrs of faith, Mrs Chidraas could barely sit still. The desire to respond in faith to his instruction MRS CHIDRAAS & DAUGHTERsuperseded the barriers posed by her geographical location as she determinedly drove over three hours to Johannesburg to meet with the Emmanuel TV team the following day.

Both her and her daughter Koketso joined the teams extending love and care to the affected family members, giving sacrificially in the process. God’s blessings soon manifested in the life of Koketso. As a student in Scotland, UK, her passport was inexplicably held when she was due to return to South Africa for the December holidays. At the same period, her mother had a dream where she saw Prophet T.B. Joshua asking her what she wanted from God.
“I knelt down and prayed that God would release the passport of my daughter. Four days later, her passport was released! To our surprise, it was not just a student visa that she got but a residence permit in the UK,” she joyfully testified! Aside from this unique blessing, Koketso was further given the opportunity to partake in an exchange program with a student in USA – a feat the school had previously termed impossible due to her mother’s stay in South Africa.

“Act upon the instructions of Prophet T.B. Joshua and definitely, your destiny will be reshaped,” were her final words of advice.


After 18 years of teaching in a small Zambian school with paltry pay and dingy, dirty classrooms, poverty and squalor still surrounded Elizabeth. Never in her wildest dreams did the middle-aged Zambian envisage the ladder of success she was about to dramatically and emphatically scale after being introduced to The SCOAN!MRS ELIZABETH KAMPAMBA [BREAKTHROUGH TESTIMONY]

Upon praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua during a period of mass prayer, the first breakthrough miraculously manifested. Mrs. Kampamba was surprisingly chosen to be a Deputy Head Teacher in another Zambian school. This was rapidly followed by promotion to the position of School Inspector across the entire country! Receiving the Anointing Water at this point following a visit to The SCOAN, Elizabeth was content with the astounding breakthrough she had enjoyed and was preparing to retire since she neared the statutory age of 55. Before now she had trekked to work; she became financially secure enough to be able to purchase a brand new car! However, God was not finished yet!

An interview for the post of a senior lecturer in English at an international university in Zambia came forward and Elizabeth was one of 15 candidates considered. Several months later, Mrs. Kampamba received her retirement letter at 10am. Five hours later, another letter came through informing that she had been appointed to the post of senior lecturer! Truly, better is not good enough; the best is always yet to come!


“I was working like an elephant but eating like an ant.” Mrs. Zwane’s situation was dire and depressing. A single mother with three children to bring up, the revenue from her job disappeared as soon as it arrived as mounting responsibilities and burdens ate up her money at ease.MRS ZWANE BREAKTHROUGH TESTIMONY (AW)]

She was living in a small flat with her children when someone brought her the Anointing Water, encouraging her to minister it in faith. Being an ardent viewer of Emmanuel TV, Dikeledi took no time to use the Anointing Water, praying in faith that she would be positioned for God’s mercy and favour. Indeed, she was divinely positioned!

Several months later, blessing after blessing followed favour after favour. Mrs. Zwane is now the owner of a brand new car, lives in an exotic holiday house in an affluent area of Johannesburg and enjoys not only financial security but has more than enough for her and her children! What a God we have to worship; what a Son we have to praise; what a future lies before us!


MR MEJANG PENECK [FREE FROM KIDNEY STONE (AW)]Mr. Mejang Reneck from Cameroon came to The SCOAN with the problem of kidney stones. He always experienced chronic pain in his side as a result of this affliction. He received the Anointing Water and after ministering it in the name of Jesus Christ, he was completely healed. Now, he can exercise, play football and has returned to normal life – pain free! He brought two documents, showing when he was diagnosed with the kidney stones and after the ministration of the Anointing Water, when he returned to the hospital. He no longer has any trace of the kidney stones. He advised the world to believe in the God they serve and that if they put their trust in God, He is able to manifest Himself in their lives again and again.


Siyabonga Mlewa was born into the bondage of asthma, which was a burden that weighed heavily on his life and that of his mother. When the attacks came, his chest would become tight and his lungs would start to close. The doctors said there was no cure and that he would have to use a breathing machine, known as a nebulizer for the rest of his life. The nebulizer became a part of his everyday routine, having to take it with him wherever he would go. At school he was limited and unable to participate in sporting activities. At home, his mother would take care of him keeping a watchful eye on her son’s bad health. His mother had to regularly leave her job when attacks came at any interval.


After eleven years of sickness and struggle, Mrs Mlewa managed to bring her son to The SCOAN believing God’s divine intervention. They came and Siyabonga received prayer from Wise Man Racine at The SCOAN Prayer Line, where he demonstrated how he would use the nebulizer. In moments of receiving prayer in Jesus’ name Siyabonga thanked God for being healed. Today, three years later and some feet taller, Siyabonga came back to thank God for his complete freedom from the asthma formerly deemed incurable. Life has improved for both him and his mother whose joy cannot be quantified.


“I bought a cutlass and told my wife to kill me…” It had got that serious. Nehemiah’s tumultuous marriage disintegrated to the point where death appeared more meaningful than life. The heated internal turmoil reached boiling point when Nehemiah’s wife decided to leave him, taking their four children along with her. Four years passed. Four years without any communication, let alone the thought of reconciliation.

Increasingly frustrated in life and business, Nehemiah one day decided to visit The SCOAN, hoping for a Word that would change the course of his life. In the midst of the service, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied to him, revealing the root of his marital challenges lay in the amorous affairs he engaged in with a friend called Henry during his university days. Prophet T.B. Joshua ended his message to Nehemiah with a surprising, divinely inspired declaration – “Your wife will call you; you will come back with your testimony.” Wife? Testimony? The two words didn’t seem to compute within Nehemiah’s jaded reasoning.

Several weeks later, however, Nehemiah’s phone rang. It was his long-lost wife! Without any knowledge of the prophetic word, she was suddenly moved to call him and seek reconciliation, requesting forgiveness on her own part. The family were remarkably reconciled and returned to The SCOAN to testify that when God speaks, His Word will not return void of fulfillment.NEHEMIAH FAMILY BRECONCILIATION [PROPHECY]

All glory belongs to the Lord for He has ordered all so that the whole shall appear to be of grace. There is no room for any man’s boasting in their own ability or power for it is not our logic, philosophy or reasoning that brings these happenings to pass but the living Word of God. May God’s Word continue to abide in you and you in it in the coming year. Keep watching Emmanuel TV! Good Morning!

Prophet T.B. Joshua The Sunday Service of December 28, 2014 was superlative in every sense. The merry ambience of the Christmas celebrations coupled with the respectable presence of the families of the Martyrs of Faith, all the way from South Africa, gave the occasion all the trappings of Godly joy expressed in a sober reflection. Though they have lost their loved ones, the families of the Martyrs of Faith have keyed into the realisation that their loved ones did not die in vain but were transited to higher glory to enjoy the eternity of life in all its splendour and purity. Indeed, they have freed their spirits and hearts from the inconsequential attachments of this material world and have attuned themselves to that heavenly frequency that avails much to the spirit of man.
In consonance with the sobriety and depth of the atmosphere, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua pungently identified with them through his deep and incisive message centred on the nature of the human spirit and its connection with the Spirit of God: “When your spirit is free, it is sensitive to the Spirit of God. There are three spirits – the Spirit of God, your spirit and evil spirit. I am referring to your spirit. When it is free, it is sensitive; it is alive to the Spirit of God”.

Speaking further, Prophet T.B. Joshua delved into the instrumentality of the spirit of man in unleashing the power of God to every situation that Christians may encounter. He urged Christians to exercise the inestimable power within the spirit to tackle every situation: “Our spirit is our instrument. What kind of instrument is it? It is an instrument to loose and bind. It is an instrument to act upon the Word. When the Word becomes a part of you, it becomes an instrument to loose and bind. When your spirit is free, it acts upon the Word”. He went philosophical with his delivery on the imperative essence of trials and tribulations to the attainment of eventual glory. The congregation, especially the families of the Martyrs of Faith, were told that a hard time to the Christian was akin to the soil upon which faith flourishes.

Concluding, the man of God prepared the minds of the congregants for the approaching New Year with prophetic precision and gave an allegorical analogy of the beauty and priceless essence of their lives: “Preparation for the next year. I want to be the first person to greet you good morning. The best life for the seeds and plants is very early morning when you find the dew. That is your life”.

MASS PRAYER focused on our dire need of mercy and on the breaking of all hindrances and bad habits standing between us and God: “By grace, you deserve His mercy. Somebody in the person of Jesus is waiting to see you through whatever life brings. Whatever hindrance, between your heart and the Spirit of Father, I remove it in the name of Jesus. That weakness/ bad habit/ addiction – I remove them in the name of Jesus. Come out, in the name of Jesus!”

Earlier, Evangelist Fanny had delivered a didactic message titled WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS. This EVANGELIST FANNYapocalyptic admonition came timely when the entire world was about crossing into a new year. She was full of counsels to Christians to explore the newness of the year in reconnecting and re-dedicating their lives to God rather than to the pursuit of pecuniary and worldly fancies: “What makes the year new is when you see that sober reflection in that transition as an opportunity to get back to God. I mean, you need to worship Him in Spirit and in truth. We are in perilous times, end times where as a Christian, what God’s Word says should be final. Jesus’ return should be uppermost in our minds”.

Dissecting the passion and energy with which Jesus attended to the needs of others, she counseled Christians to emulate the life and demeanours of Jesus through whom our salvation was made possible on the cross of Calvary: “Jesus was Water to the thirsty, Bread to the hungry and a Roadmap to the lost. Are you following the footstep of your Father? “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” (Matthew 5:1-8).

In her concluding remarks, she advised Christians to embrace the principle of selflessness in their relations with others just as Christ did in order to stand a chance of being counted worthy to stand pure before the almighty God in these last days.

In confirmation of His presence at The SCOAN, people from different walks of life continue to testify to the wondrous works God has done in their lives using Prophet T.B. Joshua and The SCOAN as contact points. The following testimonies will inspire and prepare your mind to claim yours by faith in the mighty name of Jesus!
Mr. Frank Gogo from Ghana was reduced to a pauper as he lacked almost everything apart from his life which was hanging on the trenches of frustration and lack. He was homeless and resorted to drinking, smoking and “chilling out” with bad gangs, thinking that God had abandoned him. His pitiable fate continued until the day God led him to The SCOAN. When he came to The SCOAN, he had no dime with him but was fortunate to receive the Anointing Sticker with which he prayed in faith for breakthrough and soon returned to his native Ghana. By the time he got to Ghana, things began to take a dramatic turn. He was able to register his agro-allied company and witnessed a business boom. During this time, he was able to acquire two state-of-the-art cars and a big truck for his company. After some time, he was able to buy 22 acres of land and now has 2 branches of his company in Ghana where he sells agrochemical products. He has since abandoned his past life of heavy drinking and smoking, having discovered a new life in Christ Jesus. He has been uplifted from poverty to wealth through the power of God. His community has also named him as the next King. He advises Christians to draw nearer to God in order to have their testimonies restored.
Miss Astridah Lupupa from Zambia had applied for a scholarship to study Teaching in Malaysia but got disappointing news after two weeks. She then mustered the faith to give it another try. This time around being the second time, she had so much faith in the Anointing Water as a point of contact for God’s intervention. She ministered the Anointing Water on herself and all the documents involved prior to the interview. Within two hours after the interview, she was greeted with joyous news that she had been granted a scholarship worth $12,600. She is scheduled to fly to Malaysia on January 4th, 2015.
Mr. Frank Karikari was the victim of spiritual attacks which negatively affected his academic pursuits. He would find himself walking naked in his dreams, eating all sorts of things and being chased by animals. These attacks hampered his concentration and resulted in his inability to get the result he had envisaged in his HND studies in Mechanical Engineering. He ended up obtaining a Lower Credit and became very sad with himself. Even though he started working, he was not satisfied with the state of things. He started watching Emmanuel TV and began to pray along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. He received a scholarship from his company to study Mechanical Engineering but while in the university, precisely in the second semester, the attacks increased but he was not willing to give up. A friend ministered the Anointing Water into his bottle of water which he then ministered on himself with faith that all setbacks would go for good. True to his expectation, he regained himself and continued to study without distraction. He also got his own Anointing Water. The turning point came through a dream in which he saw himself at the Prayer Line at The SCOAN being prayed for by Prophet T.B. Joshua. He felt something like an electric shock and woke up and since then, that affliction through dreams has stopped. He started concentrating well and ended up with a First Class Honours from the University of Mines and Technology, Tarkwa, Ghana. He advises Christians to make God the centre of their lives so that they can become what He had destined them to be.
Mr. Eric Kwasi Danquah was addicted to alcohol for ten years. He graduated from a mild drinker to a heavy drinker who could not do without liquor. His condition became very sad when he made drinking his partner in life. He would drink in the morning, in the afternoon and at night. He spent so much on drinking that he hardly sent money to his mother. To show the extent of damage drinking can cause, the man who introduced him to alcohol died and yet, he was unperturbed. He kept on playing slave to his craving.
One day, at a party, he had asked for alcohol but the lady who was the celebrant told him she was a Christian and would not allow alcohol in her party. He got very disappointed and uneasy as he usually did whenever he was in a party that forbade drinking alcohol. Somehow, they exchanged their contacts and the lady invited him to church. He was initially reluctant thinking that it was his mother who was the family’s problem and really needed deliverance.
However, the lady was able to make arrangements for him to come to The SCOAN with his mother. At The SCOAN, the man of God, Prophet T.B Joshua walked straight to him and prayed for him. He found himself rolling on the ground. By the time he got up, he felt some relief. After his deliverance, he stopped drinking and no longer had the desire to do so. The ironic twist to the whole story is that the same lady who took him to church became his wife. She told the story of how she had organised a thanksgiving party after coming to The SCOAN for deliverance from years of marital disappointment. Unknown to her, her husband to be was the despondent alcoholic she had met and discussed the idea of coming to church with. According to her, she thanks God for the life of Eric, who is now transformed through her effort to help someone in need. Today, they are happily married to the glory of God. Eric advises the youth to stay away from alcohol.
Ten years after she had been called to the bar, Barrister Omolola Olaitan was jobless. It was a great embarrassment for someone of her educational standing. In May, 2014, she had visited The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water. Four weeks later, she received a car gift from a friend. While hoping on God for an employment, she would dress up as if she was going to work even though she knew she had nowhere to go. She continued acting her breakthrough and watching Emmanuel TV until it eventually came. In November, she dreamt that the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua came to her and told her to prepare her CV for a job that she would receive. By the time she woke up, she decided to obey the instruction given to her in the dream. She went to a business centre to photocopy her CV and while there, she received a call for an employment. Today, she works as the Legal Research Assistant at the Kwara State Judiciary. She presented her employment letter and advised Christians not to give up on God no matter the situation.
Mr. and Mrs. Nghixulifwa came all the way from Namibia in search of solution to their barrenness. While the man suffered from a very low sperm count, the wife had been diagnosed with polycystic ovaries. The problem took them to many places in search of solution; they spent so much money and found none to be of help. They came to the SCOAN in faith having been inspired by the fact that Mrs. Nghixulifwa’s cousin who had a similar problem received her healing there. After meeting with the man of God and explaining their situation, they received the Anointing Water which they ministered on their return to Namibia. To God be the glory, Mrs. Nghixulifwa became pregnant and is today blessed with a baby girl. They advise people to keep faith in God and wait for His own time.

Shakhile Naanyane from South Africa obeyed Prophet T.B. Joshua’s instruction to show love to the families of the martyrs of faith. Before now, she had been suffering business setbacks and decided to close her shop while waiting for God’s direction. Her husband had given her some capital for a new business and from that capital she took some money to buy groceries for the families of the martyrs of faith. Since she did that, she has witnessed an upward swing in her business fortunes such that she was able to make up to R150, 000 [$13,000] in a franchise deal with King’s Pie within one month. She was awarded the ‘Best Business Plan’ award at a convention on entrepreneurship. She advises people to obey the instructions of Prophet T.B. Joshua and they will be blessed in whatever they do.

Mrs. Maria Ogbu fractured her tibia and fibula bones in an accident and came to The SCOAN for healing. According to her husband, Mr. John Ogbu, her situation was really terrible as she could not do anything. She was privileged to be at the Prayer Line where the man of God laid hands on her. As the man of God laid hands on her, she felt the bones coming together and stood up to walk at the command of the man of God in the name of Jesus. Husband and wife glorified God for the healing.


The atmosphere was festive and hearts full of hope as those in the auditorium and the overflows of The SCOAN joined together to worship Jesus Christ – the centre of Christmas! The congregation comprised those from all over the world who had chosen to spend the Sunday before Christmas in God’s presence. Time with Jesus Christ is time well spent.



Prophet T.B. Joshua enlightened the congregation about the importance of worshipping God in Spirit and truth: “God is Spirit and His worshippers must do so in Spirit and in truth. I promise you that the best Christmas gift is to take you back to God because we have not been worshipping God in Spirit and if it is not in Spirit, it is not in truth and so it is all nothing.” He further explained the transformative power of the Word of God, saying, “If God’s Word is Spirit, it means it has ability to quicken us spiritually, animate us spiritually – to give new blood and take out the old one. Since God’s Word is Spirit, it has the ability to develop a spiritual force within our hearts called faith. In that Book of John 6:63, it says, ‘My Word is Spirit and life’. That thing called faith is developed within our heart.”

Encouraging his listeners that faith comes naturally when we focus on God, he said: “You will agree with me that if you pay attention to God’s Word, you will spontaneously have faith, naturally have faith. If it is natural, it means you don’t need greater faith but a greater God. You just need to know His faithfulness and trustworthiness. What we are lacking is not greater faith but a greater God.”

Earlier, the church had been blessed and strengthened by a message from Evangelist Bolaji, titled, “Keep Your Solid Front.”



She said, “Many change their perspective about their Creator when things around them tend to go contrary to their expectations. The believers in the first century church faced intense opposition, rejection and even violent persecution but they never allowed their situation to derail them from their focus on God. They kept up the profession of their faith even in the face of overwhelming odds against them.” Inspiring the congregation and viewers to stand firm in trials, she said, “Don’t give up – keep your solid front. In time of troubles, don’t give up; keep your solid front for it is written that trials cannot impair you but improve you.”

She concluded her message by emphasizing that we should never doubt our position as children of God: “Never doubt your salvation because of challenges, I mean your situation. Once you become a Christian, satan can never snatch you away from God. He will try but he will not succeed for the Lord has given an overcoming victory to every person who is born again.”

During the course of the service, many came forward to acknowledge God as their Healer, Saviour and Deliverer which inspired the faith of all who heard them. Here are some of them:


As a commissioner of police for years without promotion, Mrs Edang Priscilla was facing disappointment in her career as she regularly watched her male counterparts receiving promotion while she looked on, frustrated and depressed. Desperate, she looked to God and decided to journey to The SCOAN for divine intervention.  She received the Anointing Water and was filled with hope and faith that her fortunes would change.



Surely, God was faithful and she was granted a double promotion and today is the first female Senior Superintendent of Police in her country of Cameroon.

She joyfully displayed the photographs before the congregation of the glorious day where she was promoted and given this large responsibility. She advised the viewers: “Trust in God – He reigns; He reigned in my situation and He will reign in your life, in Jesus’ name!’

Her husband, Pastor Wilson Ndzoke added to the testimony as he explained that a while ago, they decided to apply for a visa to travel to the USA. Before getting to the US Embassy, guided by God, he placed the Anointing Sticker on his forehead and prayed that the will of God be done. When called for the forward visa interview, the lady who conducted the interview and was known to be notorious for declining visas surprisingly gave them a one year visa for the USA, with no questions asked! His advice concerning the Anointing Water and Anointing Sticker was “Those who have it carry the anointing of God with them”.


Chief and Mrs Anthony Agalivie from Delta, Nigeria came to The SCOAN with their baby to thank God for breaking the yoke of 12 years of barrenness in their lives.



They came to The SCOAN – The Arena Of Liberty in May 2013, where Chief Anthony Agalivie was delivered from a spiritual wife and they also received the Anointing Water.  Upon their return, her period was so heavy and she felt discouraged but her husband reassured her saying, “Don’t forget where you are coming from; the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua is cleansing you”. Together, they ministered the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name and met as husband and wife.  Soon after, she had a dream in which she saw a little girl who introduced herself as an angel of God sent to deliver them. When she woke up, she knew that her testimony was on its way. The following month, she became pregnant and on her birthday, she was given the best gift – she gave birth safely to her son, Samuel!

Her husband, Chief Anthony Agalivie explained that prior to his deliverance from a spiritual wife, his life was messed up by the devil. Each night, a demonic woman would visit him and taunt him that he would never be a father. Determined to receive his freedom, they came to The SCOAN, and to the glory of God, he received his deliverance. After that they continued meditating on the Word of God, believing for the miracle child. After God answered their prayer, he explained that he felt butterflies in his stomach as he was so joyful to be a father – at last!

He said, “The rod of Moses in the hand of Prophet T.B. Joshua parted my red sea! Concerning the Anointing water, he said, “I drink it, I use it as my perfume. It is my daily companion”.


Blessing Eleke received a powerful breakthrough praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV. As a talented professional football striker, he played fantastically well in Lagos but when he headed to Europe for a breakthrough in his career, he suddenly developed setback.



His football skills dwindled and his sponsors threatened to send him back to Nigeria as he was rejected from many European clubs.

When they told him they would give them one last try, his brother, also a footballer back in Lagos recommended Emmanuel TV to him, saying that he should watch it. He decided to watch and then touched the screen, while the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua was praying. After this prayer, everything changed and he was granted a three year contract from a first division club in Slovenia! Full of joy, he showed photographs of himself as part of the winning side of this Slovenian club. He advised people all over the world not to take the prophet’s words lightly but to connect with him and pray in faith.


Pastor Peter Osikhuemhe was diagnosed to have low sperm count and this news landed him in depression. Unable to become a father, he was always sad seeing his friends who married at the same time as him with their own children. Friends tried to persuade his wife to seek alternative solution by visiting herbalists but she refused, believing that one day, God would answer them.



A friend introduced Emmanuel TV to him and he installed it in his home. Upon watching, he and his wife were encouraged to see the testimonies of others in the same predicament. They decided to visit The SCOAN themselves and received the Anointing Water. They returned home, ministered it on themselves, prayed together and met as husband and wife. Indeed, that very same month, his wife conceived! Amazed at this miracle, he went back to the doctor and the same test was conducted on his sperm. The results confirmed his miracle as his sperm count had returned to normal! Their advice: “Believe in God – distance is not a barrier. Have faith in God – the God who did it for us will do it for you!

During the mass prayer, spiritual chains were broken as people prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua in these divinely inspired prayer points:

“I want to talk to your heart: You, heart, contact the Spirit of God. Faith is of man’s heart. Whatever barrier between your heart and the Spirit of God, begin to break it, in Jesus’ name. Whatever hindrance between your heart and the Spirit of Father, begin to break it, in Jesus’ name.”



Sunday, 14th December, 2014 was a day that witnessed an outpouring of the Spirit and the Word at the Sunday Service of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations. The entire congregation both those within the main auditorium and those in the overflows all partook of the presence of Heaven even as the ever-energetic and inspiring choir kept all hearts engaged with God.
According to the man of God, the almighty God is Spirit and therefore must be worshipped in spirit and in truth, otherwise, one is merely wasting his or her energy. In other words, there must be a deliberate and passionate longing within the spirit and heart of man for God whenever he worships his or her Creator. It means that, God looks beyond the words we speak but focuses more on the depth of our hearts and spirit: “If I stand here to preach the Word, if it is not according to God’s Spirit, it is nothing. Whatever I say in prayer, if it is not according to God’s Spirit, it is nothing. If you speak words in prayer, if it is not according to the Spirit, it is not according to the truth of God’s Word. It means it is nothing, idle and meaningless”.
Speaking further, the man of God explained that the power of God moves only when the Word and the Spirit unite. “God’s power here cannot move without the Word and the Spirit to bring about healing. You need God’s Word and God’s Spirit to bring about healing, salvation and whatever we are talking about. God’s power working through His Word and His Spirit brings about whatever we desire from God”.
Meditating on the Word of God, according to the man of God, is another way of becoming a part of the Word so that our spirits act on it for the release of God’s power: “The more you think about the Word you read, the more your spirit acts upon the Word and when the spirit acts upon the Word, the Word becomes part of you. The Word has not yet become a part of you when your spirit has not yet acted upon it”. On the mystery of faith, the man of God said that we can only find faith when we pay attention to God and not by stressing ourselves, sleeping in the church or doing other things: “Now, you don’t need to cry or lament over faith, that you don’t have faith. How will you have faith? I need to sleep in the church; I need to sleep in the bush. No. If you pay attention to God, you will find that faith comes naturally”.
Concluding, Prophet T.B. Joshua encouraged Christians on the need to guard their hearts, observing that the heart is the communication contact point with the Holy Spirit, hence, we have to be on our guard to ensure that we do not lose the battle which is fought in the heart: “The right battle is in the heart. When you fail in your heart, you fail all. Your heart is Heaven, if you are a child of God. What you decree here has been decreed in your heart, if you are a child of God. Before I say, “Be healed”, the person has been healed in my heart. If I don’t see the person healed, I will not open my mouth to say, “Be healed”… The bank of miracles is in Heaven. Take care of your heart. It is either your heart is Heaven or hell. When your heart is a dwelling place for God, it becomes Heaven”.



Earlier, Evangelist Ruth in her message titled, Love God Above All, said that many of us today think we can earn God’s favour by our good works however Christianity is not a religion but a relationship. She further explained that God will not heal, bless or deliver you because of who you are or where you have come from; He will only meet you when you obey what He told you to do by His Spirit, based on His Word. She encouraged Christians by assuring them that there is hope and that the greatest miracle we need is a relationship with Jesus. She said: “Jesus is neither looking at our credentials nor personal efforts but our hearts. To love God truly is to do His will, not our own. Before giving him the commission to follow in His footsteps, Jesus asked Peter one of the most significant and penetrating, in fact, one of the most dangerous questions ever asked, ‘Do you love me?’ He did this because He knew that serving the Lord is a thing of the mind. The highest motive for serving God is the desire to please Him. There were perhaps many more qualified than Peter – more educated, more knowledgeable, more experienced – yet Jesus saw in Peter a willing servant – one who would obey His instruction. Obedience is the only proof of our faith in God”.

In confirmation of HIS mighty presence at The SCOAN, The Arena of Liberty, more and more testimonies continue to pour in to the glory of His name.
A family of doctors, Dr and Dr Mrs Benjamin Akhihwu, found themselves facing the unimaginable – they were unable to enlarge their family as a result of their medically unsolvable problem of miscarriages. For eight years, at the 20th week of every pregnancy, Dr Mrs Akihwu would have a nightmare which would result in miscarriage. Doctors examined her and found her womb was too weak to have another child. She went for an operation and almost died due to a terrible mistake.



They decided to come to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water and soon after ministering it in prayer, Dr Mrs Akihwu became pregnant. During her 15th month of pregnancy, she began to see Prophet T.B. Joshua in her dreams, praying for and reassuring her. In her 20th month, the normal attack came but this time, God used the image of Prophet T.B. Joshua defeat the evil spirit in her dream.
Overjoyed to have overcome, she went to the US for her delivery. Holding her newborn bouncing baby boy in her arms for the first time, she was given the alarming news that the baby had jaundice. Never flinching, she took her Anointing Water, ministered it to her baby in prayer and laid him down to sleep. In the morning, her baby awoke completely healed and free from jaundice. The proud parents named the baby Christopher, calling him God’s gift to them. To date, they continue to minister the Anointing Water over their family in prayer, as well as in their clinic to those who would believe. Advising all parents around the world, Dr and Dr Mrs Akihwu encouraged them to hold fast to Jesus Christ, the Giver of all life.
Imagine working for 10 years in the same profession without any advancement, facing mockery from fellow colleagues as they advance and you stand still. Such was the case for Mrs Batho Rampana, a nurse from Botswana.



One fateful day, she came across Emmanuel TV with her husband and as they watched, they saw testimonies which convinced them that all she needed was the Anointing Water. They came to The SCOAN, received the Anointing Water, returned to their country and began ministering the Anointing Water in prayer, believing God to make a way through the wilderness of her career.
Soon after, the Ministry of Health announced a vacancy for Chief Nursing Superintendent – a position far higher than the one she currently held. Her colleagues made jest of her, reminding her that the position only accepted candidates who had worked for 20 years and she was only in her 10th. Confident that nothing is impossible for God to do, she ministered her Anointing Water and went for the interview.
To the shock of everyone, the Ministry of Health called her back after the interview and appointed her as Chief Nursing Superintendent. She was later equally appointed as matron for 18 facilities in her country. Her life has changed as she now attends meetings and seminars with top officials in her profession as well as dignitaries and government officials in her country. She advised all to put their trust in God as He alone makes impossibilities possible.
After a recurrent experience of shortness of breath and general body weakness, Ms Freda Agana from Ghana visited the doctor and was deeply troubled when diagnosed with a weak heart valve and stomach ulcer. The condition greatly affected her job, as every two weeks, she was forced to go back to the hospital for treatment. Her



disappointment deepened as the effect of each treatment wore off and she realised that her condition remained the same.
She was introduced to the Anointing Water and with faith, visited The SCOAN and was privileged to receive her own bottle. Returning to Ghana, she began ministering the Anointing Water over her entire body, believing that the name of Jesus Christ would work in her health. To her great excitement, she experienced an instant relief in her body. She suddenly realised that all the symptoms were gone and she was experiencing good health! Highly motivated, she went back to the hospital for a test and all reports proved that her sickness was gone.
Rejoicing in the Lord, she gladly showed clear evidence through the medical reports confirmed by the doctor. She is certified free from the shackles of infirmity. Still glowing with joy, she encouraged the congregation to believe in Jesus Christ and trust Him at all times in whatever situation that comes their way.
Mrs Patrick had been rejoicing in the joys of pregnancy in 2002 when a sudden difficulty threatened to change her countenance. Complications arose and she was diagnosed with an ectopic pregnancy. An emergency operation was undertaken and a ruptured fallopian tube had to be cut. Her one year old marriage faced great challenges in the following years. They were able to deliver one child successfully but an ectopic pregnancy developed five years after, rupturing her fallopian tube.
As a minister of God, her husband, Pastor Patrick prayed and hoped on God for an answer. One day, he was introduced to The SCOAN where he received the Anointing Water. He prayed and ministered it on his wife in Jesus’ name. Just a few months later, his wife became pregnant. To his amazement and that of the doctors who had performed his wife’s operations, the baby grew to nine months and was delivered safely, despite the absence of fallopian tubes!



Pastor Patrick gladly showed the medical reports. The first one stated that both fallopian tubes had been cut off; the second stated that his wife was 7 months pregnant! He advised the church not to constantly focus on the problem but the possibilities of what God could do! God is infinite and there is nothing impossible with God! Mrs Patrick was short of words as she exclaimed, “The Lord has restored what was lost through this child He has given me. Don’t lose hope; the Lord shall also identify you through the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name”.
As Prince Wilson, a Nigerian based in South Africa watched his young daughter grow; he noticed several strange behaviours and addictions take hold of her. She first started eating sand and then sniffing petrol. The occurrences became frequent and then constant and he and his wife were at a loss as to how to help their child break those habits. Their sweet, innocent baby also became aggressive to other children of her age and began to hate her parents.



One day in South Africa, they started watching Emmanuel TV and during the mass prayer, as Prophet T.B. Joshua started praying, Prince Wilson’s daughter suddenly began to manifest. From that moment, he knew she needed deliverance.
He brought her all the way from South Africa to attend The SCOAN Live Sunday Service. To his great relief, she was located by God through Prophet T.B. Joshua and an amazing deliverance was wrought in her life in Jesus’ name. As the prophet prayed, the evil spirit confessed that it was a queen from the river, sent to destroy the family and their future. It was cast out by the name of Jesus Christ and the prophet introduced the little girl to her father as a new child in Christ Jesus.
Prince Wilson returned to South Africa with his daughter after the prayer and a new chapter in their lives unfolded. Testifying in the church, Prince Wilson joyfully explained how the addictions have been broken, the anger has been swallowed up by peace and hatred destroyed by the love of God. His daughter behaves completely like a normal child and even helps to take care of her younger ones. There is now peace in the family and his career and status have even taken a new turn. He happily showed off photos of his family, encouraging every parent to train their children in the way of the Lord and run to Him with every challenge and concern. He is truly God, our Father.
There is nothing impossible before God, the Creator of Heaven and earth. No matter your challenges, you too can be set free if you believe. Emmanuel!

The Sunday Service on December 7, 2014 at The SCOAN took off on an inspiring note with the choir’s soul-moving deliveries. Like forerunners, their uplifting praise and worship songs prepared the atmosphere for the digestion of the undiluted Word of God. Even the overflows were filled to the brim to cater to the need of those who could not make it to the main gallery to experience God’s consistent and powerful presence at The SCOAN.



The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, spoke on The Relationship between the Truth and the Spirit. Using the Book of John 4:24 and 14: 26 as scriptural references, he urged Christians to imbibe the gift of the Spirit which God Himself sent to them to help them in all their endeavours: “‘But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything…’ – how to sit, stand, greet, look in the name of Jesus”. Speaking further, he admonished them to pay more attention to the Spirit rather than to material things of the world observing that since it is the Spirit that creates the materials, clamouring for the material was mere vanity upon vanity: Why should we worship materials then? Even you are a material. You are the greatest material, the greatest product. The Word of God is a Spirit, creates material things. Why do you believe that by building cathedral for God you are a child of God? Why should you believe that once you are a president of a nation if you enter a church they should give you the best seat? You are a material. Vanity upon vanity all is vanity”.

Concluding, the man of God urged Christians to keep faith in God and believe that He is reliable: You have seen God working in the Spirit, you have seen things happening, and you have seen the power of God at work. If you have seen that God is reliable, trust Him; that is faith. I want to pray with you. If there is anyone who is still outside faith in God, I restore your faith; let your faith be restored! Begin to trust God. No one can teach you that trust; it just comes naturally, spontaneously. It is natural; you can’t get it or be taught it”.

Earlier in the service, Evangelist Yinka had blessed the hearts of the congregation and viewers worldwide with a message titled, I Plead Guilty in which she reminded us of the need to approach God in humility and simplicity of heart, knowing that God receives repentant souls.



“When the children of God begin to experience the products of sin in their lives, rather than pointing fingers at their fellow brothers as being the cause of their affliction, they look inward in order to rediscover their route in God. They repent and repair; I mean they amend or change their ways and pray to God for reinstatement. The Bible says God is always ready to reinstate His people, who come to Him in humility and repentance, to their right position in His glory”.


Just as God’s mercies endure forever, the testimonies He has put on the lips of His children continue to increase. The following testimonies are a confirmation of the mighty works of God at The SCOAN. As you read, may God locate you with your own testimonies in Jesus’ name. Amen.




The problem that brought Mrs. Favour Amorro from Rivers, Nigeria to The SCOAN was cancer of the arms. When she got married, her problems started when there was no peace in their marriage and Her frustration led her to go clubbing. One day, a friend she met at the club who had tattoos, convinced her to get tattoos as well in the name of fashion. She agreed and had six done. In a dream, she was told that it was not for fashion but rather her initiation into the kingdom of darkness. She found herself going to oceans, eating strange food and was the victim of different attacks and harassments in her dreams affecting her spiritual and physical life. She returned to the tattoo man to have them removed and he used a chemical to scratch the tattoos off her. However, instead of the tattoos to disappear, each of them became a cancerous wound on her arms. The doctors had no solution to or explanation of the open sores apart from offering drugs and injections. Seeing her sorry plight, a friend advised her to go to The SCOAN to seek the mercy of God. Agreeing, she came and received the Anointing Water which she ministered all over her body immediately. In no time at all, the wounds had been completely healed and the sores covered up.



Since then, she can wash, cook and bathe without any pain or problem. She no longer has any pain where the wounds were neither is she pursued by the satanic kingdom that had tried to ensnare and destroy her. She advised that people should be wary of the devil’s schemes by being in constant prayer to God Almighty, our Saviour and Redeemer.



A few years ago, Mr Paul Kamara fell sick and was taken to hospital. The doctors tested him and said he had Hepatitis B which has no cure. The next place for him was the grave and at 14 years this was a terrifying prospect. He was still so young, had so much to offer and had so much yet to accomplish. He lost concentration and this seriously affected his performance and grades. His parents introduced him to Emmanuel TV and they got the Anointing Water for him which he began to minister to himself.



It was exam time for Paul, a period in which he would usually feel dizzy, lack concentration and not do well at all. But this time, he was pleasantly surprised that unlike before he was physically strong and the exams went well. After ministering the Anointing Water and discovering that he no longer had the dizzy feelings he used to, he went to the doctors for a check-up and to his and the doctor’s surprise, he was found negative to Hepatitis B – there were no signs of Hepatitis B in his system! He was healed in the name of Jesus Christ, through the Anointing Water. He advises the world to look at the Anointing Water as a medium God uses to heal, bless and deliver His people.


Adejare Adedeji applied to several institutions for a Master’s degree but was denied despite having good grades to boast of.  Frustrated, he came to The SCOAN for solution and received the Anointing Water. He took it home and ministered it earnestly; praying concerning his future and asking that God’s mercy should speak for him.



Soon after, he received an acceptance letter from a University in Toronto, Canada. He came showing that he had all he needed to commence his further education overseas, displaying his letter of acceptance, flight ticket and visa. He advised Christians to believe that the Anointing Water is our connection to Jesus Christ, our Provider.


Mrs. Winifred Jonathan gave her testimony in tears of joy as she recalled the many name- callings and tribulations she had endured in her eight years battle with barrenness. People had criticized her for staying with her husband and many others took her from one place to another for different solutions, bathing her in rivers and all other kinds of supposed solutions but she kept believing that one day,



God would do His wonders in her life. Then that one day came; her mother who lived in the USA told her to come to The SCOAN to receive the Anointing Water. She agreed and when her mother came to visit her, they went together and received the Anointing Water. Sometime later, she was feeling strange and woke up in the night several times. She did a home pregnancy test and she discovered that she was pregnant! In the auditorium, she held her beautiful baby to show the whole world what God has done for her. We just need to see the faithfulness and trustworthiness of God and our faith will come spontaneously.


Mr. Godwin Akanhu from Abia State, Nigeria, received words of prophecy when he and his wife visited The SCOAN. They came due to the loss of their only child after six years of marriage. When their daughter became sick, they took her to many hospitals and even visited a spiritualist. Their daughter was eight months old when she died. In grief, they decided to come to The SCOAN and that was when Prophet T.B. Joshua told them that he saw them in a cage, a revelation which Mr Akanhu immediately confirmed while explaining their woes.



They received prayer and were further comforted when they received prophecy of a baby to come. After two weeks, she had conceived and today they are parents of a beautiful baby. To God be the glory!


The problems of low sperm count and ovarian cyst for Mr. & Mrs. Anand from India, respectively, made child-bearing a big challenge to their faith. During those hard times, Mr. Anand decided to travel to The SCOAN where he had seen many with the same problem receive solutions.



He visited The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water to minister to himself and his wife. She soon became pregnant and despite the doctors being critical, the pregnancy went smoothly. Mrs. Anand continued ministering the Anointing Water throughout her pregnancy. The doctors were still worried, unsure if she and the baby would survive due to her seemingly weak state. To the doctors’ surprise and relief – with ease, she gave birth to a very healthy baby boy. They travelled all the way from India to The SCOAN Lagos, Nigeria, to give their testimony of the grace and gift of God.


When Mr Tachinda was 10 years old, his grandfather took him to his shrine. He was initiated for one week where he had to swallow the tongue of a chicken every day and bathe in the river as part of the process. He began stealing from his father and often ran away from school but this was only the beginning of the germination of the foul seed which had been planted in his life. He started clubbing and meeting bad gangs who introduced him to taking drugs and how to dupe people (defraud people of money). Advancing in his practises, he got tattoos done as directed by the evil spirits. One was of the mermaid he would sleep with in his dreams; another was a cobra that would appear to him when he was fighting so that no one could defeat him. He also had tattoos of a tiger on his body as well. He saw a tiger physically in his village and in a dream he was told the tiger was his grandfather. After doing this, came the power to command people who would comply without hesitation. He had agents working for him all over the world giving him information to help him steal people’s identities and sell their properties. The agents would provide all he needed including false passports so that people would believe that he was who he said he was.



He become fed up with life however as after everything, he ended up with nothing. On the outside, he would mix with the rich but inside he was empty, constantly tormented in dreams by those whom he had duped. He came to The SCOAN with a plan to get the Anointing Water to enhance his duping career! That was how the Lord Jesus Christ arrested him in the power of the Holy Spirit, delivering him from the evil spirits which had used him to defraud thousands across the globe. Since then, duping is no longer a part of him. He no longer sees the evil woman which had tormented him in his dreams. He publicly renounced the life of stealing, fornication and all fraudulent ways advising all still in the bondage of the evil one to look to Jesus Christ for salvation.

Sunday November 30, 2014 was a symbolic day as it marked the end of the eleventh month of the year. As such, the Sunday Service at The SCOAN held with all the frills of heavenly joy. The Spirit-filled congregation danced to the melodies emanating from the choir which has always lived up to the musical expectations of the entire church. Their pieces and the energy with which they are rendered touched hearts and created the right mood for the Spirit of God to swing into action. Again, it was another massive turn-out as the congregation, both those within the main church auditorium and those in all the overflows, came in the hope of having an encounter with God.

Delivering a message titled “THE WORD AND THE SPIRIT MUST JOIN”, the man of God Prophet T.B. Joshua DADDYhighlighted the connection between constant prayer and the fulfilment of our wishes and desires. He explained that the Faith Bracelet was therefore meant to help us cement the unity between the word and our hearts. The man of God also encouraged Christians to meditate on the Word always stressing that it can shape their characters and conducts: “A break in prayer is a break in faith. We are to pray all the time. Faith counts in whatever we do. Are you sleeping or looking? Faith counts.  If the Word dominates your mouth, one day it will pay off. The heart will bring it to fulfilment. We all know when the Word dominates our hearts, it influences our conduct and behaviour. The Faith Bracelet will help you to think about what you read in the Bible”.

According to the man of God, the heart is synonymous with the spirit. This means that the Word will only become very productive if we allow it to germinate on the fertile soils of our hearts. He observed that, the more we allow it to dominate our mouth and hearts, the more it will pay off. Quoting John 6:63 – which says: “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life,” the man of God admonished that failure, refusal or inability to speak from the heart or spirit amounts to nothing: “If the Word is not from your heart and you say, ‘In Jesus’ name’, you are speaking to yourself. You are calling a certain man called Jesus on earth, not Jesus of Nazareth we know”.


Analysing the functions of both the Word and the Spirit, Prophet T.B. Joshua observed that, despite the varying roles they play, both still had to be united or joined to be able to make positive impact on the life of a person. He re-emphasised the role of the Faith Bracelet in ensuring that the joining of the word and spirit for impact is attained: “There are two functions – God’s Word refreshes our mind; God’s Spirit renews our strength. These two must join – the Word and the Spirit. if not, the Word goes nowhere. The Word and the Spirit must join. The Spirit will be released to the degree we stand in reverence or honour of God’s Word. So, what is the function of the Faith Bracelet? To dominate your mouth. When the Word dominates your mouth, one day, it will pay off and dominate your heart”.


On how to read the Holy Bible, the man of God revealed that it has to be done slowly and meditatively, explaining that the Spirit of God is a gentle spirit and therefore is not in a hurry: “You must read your Bible slowly. You may understand the language but it does not mean you understand the Word – because it is not history. You may understand all the grammar, language and idioms as a professor or educated person but that does not mean you know the meaning of what you are reading. Read it slowly first because the Spirit of God is a gentle Spirit. If you want to rush and finish the Bible, you are deceiving yourself. You must read it slowly, attentively and repeatedly”.


And on where to read in the Bible, the man of God taught that it is God that gives direction through the Holy Spirit and as such, Christians are expected to precede their Bible reading with prayer so that they may be given direction: “Many ask, ‘Where should I read in the Bible, as a Christian? Do I start from Genesis, Matthew or Revelation?’ You must first pray before you open your Bible. Pray for God to direct you where to go and where to start. After prayer, you can open your Bible”.


Concluding, the man of God urged Christians to make the most judicious use of the forthcoming New Year as a time to suffuse themselves in the Word of God: “There is no better way to celebrate the upcoming New Year than to have God’s Word in your heart. Christians today don’t have a basic knowledge of God. It’s like a student who did not learn ABC but now wanted to write someone’s name. It can never be possible”.

Earlier on, the service began with a powerful message from EVELYN JOSHUAEvangelist Evelyn Joshua titled ‘Jesus Christ, The Life Coach’. In the message, Evangelist Evelyn spoke on the need to involve God in each step of one’s journey through life, stressing that when you make Jesus Christ your Boss, you will be connected to the One who created you and thus enjoy His peace, success and contentment.

“Every human has a hunger to know He who created him or her; we all desire to experience God in a unique way,” she stressed. “Until you experience God, there would be dissatisfaction in your life.” She further encouraged the congregants, “If you know that God will rescue you in the future, you will hold steady, trust Him and not listen to the temptation to act out of character.” She concluded by advising everyone to learn from the lifestyle of Jesus Christ – ‘Our Life Coach’.

Stacey woke up once again in a cold sweat. The intensity of the nightmares seemed to be increasing. Dark demonic beings had been a constant nocturnal companion for the young American, ever since she was sexually molested at a tender age.STACEY


The tormenting, devilish creatures would abuse her at night, forcefully sleeping with her. The nightmare went beyond the night as growing up under such torment soon rippled into relationship challenges. A tumultuous first marriage ended in separation as the evil attacks destroyed all love and affection from the relationship. With a dwindling career and frustration meeting her every step, Mrs Ifezue started seeking for Divine intervention.


A random YouTube search remarkably led her to discover the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua. As she watched clip after clip of deliverance in the name of Jesus Christ, realization dawned – this was what she needed. Resolving to make the trip from New York to Lagos, she visited The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water. A ministration of the Anointing Water proved to be a catalyst for an incredible change! The demons steadily started decreasing their visitations until they simply stopped coming! Thereafter, Stacey’s business started to boom and a new relationship was forged which resulted in a brand new marriage! Indeed, the evidence of Jesus Christ is life changed!




The elderly Indian lady limped forward towards her television. She was thousands of kilometres away from Nigeria and couldn’t even speak English but faith saw beyond these barriers. Touching the tiny screen as Prophet T.B. Joshua was offering prayer, the supernatural power of God literally pulsated through her body!MRS KOVVADA JESSICA


Mrs Kovvada Jessica, a senior nurse by profession, was in India when she discovered Emmanuel TV on the internet. Her mother, who had fractured her hip in a horrific accident, was on the sickbed at the time for over one year. Strengthened in faith by the miraculous clips she watched on Emmanuel TV, she introduced her mother to the channel and encouraged her to pray along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. As the prayer point, ‘Dry bones – rise again’ was being offered, she touched the screen and received instant healing, able to walk freely for the first time in one year.


As Jessica’s love for Emmanuel TV grew, so did the blessings of God. Seeing the Anointing Sticker and the testimonies people shared through it, she decided to take a picture of the Sticker from Emmanuel TV and print it as a point of contact. Placing the photocopied Anointing Sticker on her motorbike, she prayed to God for Divine protection. Previously, Mrs Kovvada had frequent accidents and injuries through using the motorbike. However, after placing the Anointing Sticker on it, she testified that she has had no more accidents and her health has been miraculously rejuvenated.


The testimonies through her interaction with Emmanuel TV are far too numerous to mention. Where previously there were hatred and jealousy in her workplace, love and promotion have taken their place. Scores of people have prayed with the Anointing Sticker she keeps as a constant companion in her pocket, including a work colleague who reconciled with her estranged husband and children after the prayer.


Just imagine – if a lady in faraway India could demonstrate such faith and receive so many blessings merely through watching Emmanuel TV, what is stopping you from stepping out in faith as you are watching right now and receiving your own testimony, in Jesus’ name!




DR RICHARD URAMADr Richard Urama was frustrated. His favourite foods had literally been banned by medical health professionals, who warned him he would have to watch his diet for the rest of his life due to a sudden onset of high cholesterol.


However, even after five years of regular tablet-taking to regulate his cholesterol, alongside a strict and challenging diet regime, the cholesterol level was still surprisingly high, making doctors to warn that this could result in a heart attack if he wasn’t careful.


The ailment further affected his government work, which was already strenuous enough. However, after being introduced to Emmanuel TV by a work colleague, Dr Urama was shocked to behold how God’s power was eradicating even far more serious ailments than his own in the instant. He decided to visit The SCOAN and was among those privileged that day to receive the Anointing Water.


The moment he ministered the Anointing Water, Dr Urama described a light sensation that rapidly encompassed his entire body. Convinced beyond all doubt that a miracle had taken place, he immediately returned to his choice culinary dishes and resumed his normal diet. Several months later, after witnessing no side effects whatsoever, he decided to revisit the hospital that had diagnosed him. The levels of his cholesterol had completely normalized, reducing from 244 to 183!




“Go and marry another wife”, she tearfully pleaded with her husband. The shame and scorn were simply too much for her to bear. After 14 years of childlessness, Anthonia Udeh was at a point where hope seemed too distant to grasp.ANTHONIA UDEH


The doctors had diagnosed tubal blockage, coupled with irregular menstruation. The Nigerians, who reside in the Democratic Republic of Congo, had exhausted all medical options without any sign of fruitfulness. Anthonia often cried herself to sleep, wondering if her pleas were even reaching God. However, even after urging her husband to marry another woman in order for the family name to continue, he refused, steadfastly urging her to trust in God and hold onto hope.


As the search for solution continued, Mr & Mrs Udeh encountered Emmanuel TV while browsing channels in DRC. Amazed that the miracles they saw unfolding before their eyes were happening in their homeland of Nigeria, Mrs Udeh resolved immediately to visit The SCOAN. The very month she visited The SCOAN and received Anointing Water was the very month she fell pregnant! One year down the line, she presented baby Marvellous Emmanuel Chidiebere to The SCOAN congregation, declaring him a child God had gifted the joyous couple from above. She advised barren women never to give up faith in God and seek alternatives but believe that God’s time is the best and at His perfect time, He would wipe their tears of barrenness away.




“If I was not brought up in a Christian home, I probably would have undergone a sex change,” Jorine Venhuizen, a visitor from Holland explained to The SCOAN congregation.JORINE VENHUIZEN


From a very young age, Jorine felt comfortable moving with males and preferred male-dominated activities and environments. Her continual boyish tendencies were also accompanied by heavy depression and terrible, tormenting nightmares where she was oftentimes stabbed or shot.


The negative thoughts venomously whispering in her heart were so severe that suicide seemed the best option as Jorine felt both confused and condemned. To make matters worse, aggressive acne covered almost the entirety of her face, pushing the young Dutch lady to literally loathe her appearance.


Even after managing to get married, there was no genuine affection or love as it felt more like two males fighting for dominance in the house. After being introduced to The SCOAN, Jorine decided to visit from Holland. Although she received prayer, she kept silent about her secret masculine desires, even after being counselled to confess ‘everything’ before God.


On a subsequent visit, she realised that total deliverance and complete confession went hand-in-hand and openly confessed the real nature of her challenges. After exposing the destructive demon, it had no hiding place and was forcefully revealed when Wise Man Harry prayed for her at the Prayer Line.


After receiving deliverance, everything about Jorine has changed. For the first time in 34 years, she saw herself as a female, began enjoying her marital relationship and saw the painful, itchy acne dry up and disappear within a short period. As Prophet T.B. Joshua says, “Sin brings fear; confession brings freedom.” Thank You, Jesus Christ!
