The SCOAN New Year service had all the qualities of a new beginning.

crowdSongs of joy echoed all through the auditorium as the choir led congregants in praising God and thanking Him for ushering them into a brand New Year with great expectations, dreams and aspirations. In his message to Christians all over the world,

prophet-t-b-joshua

Prophet T.B. Joshua advised them to dream of walking with the Lord, adding, “No difficult circumstances or infirmities will stop you from the love of God. The more they come, the more your desire and determination for God!”

Describing the year 2017 as a wonderful one, the man of God said Christians will pray harder in spite of the attacks that would come their way. He also submitted that, the more the challenges, the more they would desire to serve God in Spirit and in truth because there would be blessings hidden in those challenges.

Continuing, the man of God urged Christians to soldier on and hold on to their goals and dreams irrespective of the magnitude of challenges that would come their way in the New Year: “When challenges come, remember your dream and your goal. Nothing should be compared to your goal and dream.” He also added that the voices of wailing, trouble and difficulty will be silenced. He concluded by emphasising on the vision that he had received from God for the new year: “A dream of walking with the Lord, a new dream for you.”

TESTIMONIES

OVARIAN CYST DESTROYED. ADDICTION TO PORNOGRAPHY LAID TO REST

mrs-dike-mother

Mrs Blessing Dike was diagnosed with ovarian cyst and other pelvic anomalies. Faced with the stark reality of a surgery, she became depressed. In an escapist attempt to evade her worries, she dabbled into internet-surfing and ended up browsing and downloading pornography. Her escape from worries was always temporary. The emotional burden always returned as soon as she was done with watching pornography. Mrs Dike would ask God for forgiveness after watching those obscene videos. She couldn’t control the things that were happening to her. She also had nightmares and spiritual attacks to which her husband was a co-witness.

Towards the end of 2015 when Emmanuel TV was included in the DSTV/GOTV bouquet, Mr and Mrs Dike seized the opportunity to listen to the teachings of Prophet T.B. Joshua as well as the wonderful testimonies abounding at The SCOAN. According to Mrs Dike, the powerful teachings of the man of God ushered her into a whole new world ornamented by hope, faith and the joy of the Lord. She was convinced that God would take care of her worries as soon as she stepped her feet into the Arena of Liberty.

In January 2016, Mrs Dike and her husband visited The SCOAN and received the Morning Water. The couple returned to their base and started ministering the Morning Water as they prayed along with the man of God on Emmanuel TV. Suddenly, the overwhelming pressure to watch pornography stopped. The same with all those nightmares and spiritual attacks. Feeling extremely excited, the couple agreed to revisit the hospital for another test on her pelvic region. After the test, the doctor confirmed that there was no problem with her ovary and pelvic region. The ovarian cyst that had reared its ugly head was destroyed by the power of God through the Morning Water. “Share your testimonies so that they could bless the lives of people who are still struggling,” she advised as she concluded her testimony.

HOLY SPIRIT RENDERS ARMED ROBBERS’ KNIFE USELESS

mr-olusola-miss-haneesah-ibrahim-2

Mr Kolawole was away when two men and a woman visited his showroom to enquire about some furniture works. The three visitors who pretended to be customers eventually revealed their true identities and intentions. Mr Kolawole’s shop attendant, Miss Haneesah Ibrahim never had an inkling of their evil intention when they led her into her boss’ office only to tie her up legs-and-hands, demanding money and threatening to kill her if she resisted. Though they were able to lay their hands on some cash, they attempted to slaughter her by the throat but the knife failed. They tried the same thing on her belly but their sharpened steel became blunt and unable to penetrate. Frustrated, they resorted to the use of a screw driver to pierce her neck.

Mr Kolawole got the greatest shock of his life when he returned to find his shop attendant in a pool of her own blood. She was lifeless and the only thing he could do at that point was to minister the Morning Water on her. The anointing had an instant effect – the girl showed signs of revival by shaking her body after which she was conveyed to the hospital where she spent some days receiving medical attention. It was at the hospital that she narrated her ordeal in the hands of the unholy customers.

mr-olusola-miss-haneesah-ibrahim

According to Mr Kolawole, he had always been in possession of the anointing materials in all areas of his life. The Good Morning Stickers adorn his business premises, including his office and showroom. Even his shop attendant, though a Muslim, had always used the Morning Water. He attributed the inability of the robbers to kill his shop attendant to the power of God in the Morning Water and Good Morning Sticker. He was visibly overwhelmed with the miracle as he testified in company of his family and the shop attendant. Thanking God for intervening and stopping the plan of the devil from materialising, Mr Kolawole advised people all over the world to hold on to God who can do all things through His servant, Prophet T.B. Joshua.

BOWEL AND LUNG CANCERS CRUSHED BY THE ANOINTING

She was diagnosed with rectal and lung tumours which were later confirmed to be cancerous. Mrs Isabell Formin was advised to undergo both chemotherapy and radiography. In spite of the conclusions of doctors, the Cameroonian living in the United Kingdom did not give in to fear. Even when the nurses urged her to order for a wig to mitigate the hair loss usually associated with chemotherapy, she insisted that she would not lose her hair and so it was, according to her belief. During a chance meeting with a woman whom she told about her problems, she was introduced to Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV.

mrs-isabell

The woman also went ahead to give her some drops of the Morning Water which she mixed with ordinary water. As she ministered it, she discovered that her waning strength improved. Not even the debilitating effects of chemotherapy and radiography combined could affect her. She was just indescribably strong and knew within her that the Morning Water was working wonders. Mrs Formin continued to minister the Morning Water on herself and on her children. She also watched Emmanuel TV without ceasing. Her faith grew in leaps and bounds to the extent that she once told her husband that, though she was healed, but coming to The SCOAN would make her healing complete and permanent.

Visiting The SCOAN in August 2016, Mrs Formin received prayers from Prophet T.B. Joshua at the Prayer Line. After her visit to The SCOAN, she returned to the UK and had an appointment with her doctors. After carrying out some check-ups on her, she was told that there were no tumours in both her rectum and lung. The cancerous growths disappeared. While undergoing another test to ascertain the state of her colon, Mrs Formin was anesthetized. As she was about to wake up from the induced sleep, she heard a voice shout, “You are healed!”. By the time she finally woke up, the doctors handed her the test result which showed that there was no problem whatsoever with her system.

Thanking God during her testimony last Sunday, Mrs Formin told congregants how she suffered from all sorts of dream attacks. According to her, strange people always came to sleep with her in the dream, leaving her sick when she woke up. She thanked God for intervening in her case through Emmanuel TV and the Morning Water. She advised people all over the world to have faith in God as there is nothing He cannot do. She also encouraged them to watch Emmanuel TV, adding that they shouldn’t mind whatever negative things people say about the man of God and his ministry.

DOUBLE RESTORATION FOR A JOBLESS COUPLE

mrs-mirian-kwam

Mrs Miriam Kwaw-Yankson had lost her job in May 2013. While she was lamenting the unfortunate development, she discovered she was pregnant. How to give herself the special attention needed by a pregnant woman coupled with her joblessness became a very heavy burden on her. Her husband could not help as he himself was also jobless. The family was indeed at a crossroad. All doors of help seemed closed as they battled with bad dreams. As they continued to hope for a change in their fortunes, Mr Kwaw-Yankson visited a friend and discovered Emmanuel TV.

Having witnessed the display of God’s power on the channel, the Ghanaian couple decided to install the cable in their home. As they watched Emmanuel TV and keyed into the prophetic declarations of the man of God, things started changing. Their dreams also changed. Sometimes, Mrs Kwaw-Yankson would be rescued by Prophet T.B Joshua whenever trouble brewed in her dreams. In 2014, God blessed Mr Kwaw-Yankson with a job. In May 2015, after praying with the man of God and ministering the Morning Water on her credentials, she was called to submit her CV by a friend. The submission of that CV eventually culminated in her employment as the Branch Manager of a firm.

Thanking God for restoring what the locust and cankerworm had eaten in their lives, Mrs Kwaw-Yankson also told congregants how they were blessed with a family car. According to her, God has blessed them so much so that they even give to charity as a sign of gratitude to God. She advised Christians and people all over the world to see whatever situations they may be passing through as opportunity to move to the next level.

YOKES OF BEDWETTING AND ALCOHOLISM BROKEN

mr-okundia-edosa

For twenty-seven years, Mr Okundia Edosa was battling with the yoke of bedwetting. The problem brought a lot of shame to the young man. His movement became restricted as he could not visit friends and family easily. The few friends and family members he had put up with did not actually notice his problem as he would use water to wash off the urine from their mattresses. At a time, he got fed up and decided to live alone. It was at that juncture that he came across a friend who urged him to install the Emmanuel TV cable in his house.

After installing Emmanuel TV, he continued to pray along with Prophet T.B. Joshua and later decided to visit The SCOAN. Mr Edosa actually visited The SCOAN and received the Morning Water. One night, after ministering the Morning Water, he went to sleep and dreamt he was about to excuse his friends to go and urinate. But before he could start urinating, he heard a voice and felt that something hit him. As he woke up, he discovered he was in his room. Since that day, he has not wet the bed.

Thanking God last Sunday, the Nigerian from Edo State also testified to his deliverance from the yoke of drunkenness after over ten years of addiction to alcohol. According to him, he stopped drinking alcohol after he had ministered the Morning Water. Describing the Morning Water as fire, Mr Edosa advised people all over the world to continue serving God, adding that they should take the Morning Water as their working tool filled with the power of God.

The 2016 Christmas service at The SCOAN witnessed a blend of celebration and warfare. While congregants exuded illimitable joy on account evangelist-racineof the commemoration of the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, they also used the occasion to unleash holy terror on the kingdom of darkness. The Mass Prayer shook the foundations of the satanical kingdom and caused commotion in the gates of hell. The intensity of the Mass Prayer also brought about deliverance, healing and liberation for those under the many different yokes of the devil. Congregants also made positive confessions of promotion, prosperity, sound health and career progress ahead of the approaching new year.

In his message, The Promise of Liberation, Evangelist Racine urged Christians to look onto Jesus whom the Father sent to liberate us from all the worries and burdens of the world. According to him, “He (Jesus) is the fulfilment of every God’s Word. He is a Light for direction and comfort. A glorious Light that will dispel every shade of darkness in our lives.”  He also assured them, using Biblical references, that their stolen joy would be restored through the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Urging them to repose their absolute trust in the Son of God, he added that they will never be overwhelmed by the oddities of this world: “When you trust in Jesus Christ, you will never be confounded in time or eternity.” Concluding, he urged Christians never to allow the devil remind them of their past, stressing that their past is over. He also encouraged them to rebuke the evil one by reminding him of his future failure: “When the devil comes to remind you of your past, remind him of his future failure.”

HEALED BY HEAVEN, RECOGNISED BY THE UNITED NATIONS               

3-mr-mrs-ebenezer-first-quaoMr Ebenezer First-Quao’s decades-long service with the United Nations as an interpreter witnessed its own sad times. The Ghanaian would suddenly be hit by a nasty ailment that threatened his career. Each time he went to the restroom to ease himself, he came out weak. Visiting a specialist hospital in his Ethiopia base, he was diagnosed with severe haemorrhoids with thrombosis. The doctors had suggested the option of surgery but his wife would rather have the matter tabled before God; she encouraged her husband to visit The SCOAN, having become an ardent viewer of Emmanuel TV after some initial scepticism.

Visiting The SCOAN in 2009, exactly the same time when the late Ghanaian President, Atta-Mills held a thanksgiving at the church, Mr First-Quao received prayers from Prophet T.B. Joshua. During the prayer, he felt an unprecedented calmness all around him. That same evening, as he went to ease himself, he felt no more pain even as the blood stains that usually accompanied his visit to the restroom disappeared. Before he left The SCOAN, Mr First-Quao received the Morning Water. He subsequently visited his children in different countries across Europe and ministered it to them.

The entire First-Quao family received great and remarkable blessings thereafter. Apart from receiving academic and business breakthroughs, some of his children also received their citizenship in their various countries of residence in Europe. As for Mr First-Quao himself, he was recognised in retirement by former United Nations Secretary-General, Ban-Ki Moon with an award for an initiative he had spearheaded to assist victims of drought in Ethiopia. He was also blessed financially with a retirement benefit to the tune of five hundred thousand US dollars. He has invested the money into several building projects aside from buying his own house in Addis-Ababa.

According to his wife, during their testimony, coming across Emmanuel TV was the biggest breakthrough they had ever experienced in life. She also submitted that the teachings of Prophet T.B. Joshua have enabled her to discover practical Christianity.

 

STIFF NECK LOSES ITS STINGfrancis-ekene-3

francis-ekene-1Having been diagnosed with a stiff neck due to cervical spondylosis, Mr Francis Ekene was advised to go for a corrective surgery but the Nigerian living in South Africa rejected the idea. Instead, he chose to seek the face of God rather than waste his money on an operation that was without any concrete guarantee. He eventually visited The SCOAN and proceeded to the Prayer Line.francis-ekene-2

After Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for him, he noticed that he could turn his hitherto stiff neck. All the debility and excruciating pain that came with the stiff neck stopped. Thanking God during his testimony, Mr Ekene who has since returned to his work, observed that he can now sleep peacefully without discomfort.

According to him, he now drives his car with ease. He advised people all over the world to put their trust in God.

 

TEN YEARS OF JOBLESSNESS COME TO A GLORIOUS END

For ten years, it was a sad experience of joblessness or at least, having to make do with odd jobs just to keep body and soul together. Sometimes, her daughter would have to intervene to save her from total financial annihilation. Mrs Christiana Abiye Rullich really needed God to bring her dire situation under His control. One of her concerned friends became the angel God used to change her situation. Her friend had learnt about the December 2016 Revival Service on Emmanuel TV and had informed Mrs Rullich about it. In a display of absolute faith, Mrs Rullich purchased her flight ticket and flew down to Nigeria. In her mind, the unending failure to secure a permanent job must succumb to the 5-christianapower of God.

During the Revival Service, Mrs Rullich received prayers from Prophet T.B. Joshua. She also received the Morning Water. After the prayers, she received a letter from Germany, notifying her of her employment for a permanent position which commences on January 2, 2017. Thanking God for the miracle, Mrs Rullich told congregants that the employment is her first permanent one in ten years. The new job comes with several securities including health insurance. She advised people going through her type of challenge to believe in God as the only real Helper.

 

DIFFICULTY IN WALKING BANISHED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT
caroline-2 Despite the fact that she is a nurse, Princess Caroline Ene could not help herself tackle the ailment that had befallen her. For two years, she suffered from difficulty in walking and had to resort to the use of a lumbar corset. The ailment made her unable to carry out domestic chores. Not even was she able to lift a bucket of water. All her quest for a solution ended in futility. The Nigerian residing in the United States of America had to make the over twelve-hour journey in order to attend the 2016 Revival Service at The SCOAN, Lagos, Nigeria in December.caroline

Mrs Ene was at the Prayer Line where she received the anointed touch of Prophet T.B. Joshua. The power of God through His Prophet uprooted the cause of her problem and made her whole again. Demonstrating her new-found fitness, Mrs Ene urged people all over the world to believe in Jesus as He is the ultimate Healer.

 

SPIRIT HUSBAND IS BARRED AS MARRIAGE IS RESTORED
family-3Mrs Maduekwe was born to a sangoma-practicing father and had grown up to find herself dreaming of taking over from him. Sometimes, she would dream about herself dressed as a princess. Her problems started after her father’s death when she refused to take over from him as a sangoma practitioner. The sangoma spirit forcefully possessed her and made her do many terrible things, especially in her marriage. Before she married her husband, they both enjoyed unmitigated peace until they got married. The love that bound them together soon took flight. Mrs Maduekwe became a terror. She would become uncontrollably angry and would threaten to injure her husband. Whenever her husband wanted some intimacy, his manhood would die unnaturally.
Mrs Maduakwe had terminated three of her pregnancies and almost lost her life in another attempt to abort a six-months-old pregnancy. She continued to live a violent life and eventually rekindled a relationship with her ex-boyfriend. She even told her husband that the young man was just a cousin. She continued to frolic with her ex-boyfriend as they would meet secretly without her husband having an inkling of their escapades. On his part, Mr Maduekwe also had extra-marital affairs because of his wife’s seeming frigidity. For fourteen years, the marriage hit the doldrums.family-2

The couple visited The SCOAN and encountered the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua as he ministered prophecy to congregants. As soon as the prophet approached her, the spirit inside Mrs Maduekwe started manifesting. The man of God went on to tell the couple that the cause of their marital woes was a spiritual husband that had been tormenting Mrs Maduekwe for a long time. The couple thereafter received their deliverance in the mighty name of Jesus. Since their deliverance, the couple have rediscovered the true love that was the hallmark of their early days as a married couple. Mrs Maduekwe urged people all over the world to know that God’s time is the best while her husband added that we should run to God in the face of every marital problem.

Tprophet-t-b-joshuahe SCOAN Live Sunday Service of December 18, 2016 witnessed the demonstration of God’s everlasting glory. The glorious as well as victorious power of Christ was displayed with the testimonies that greeted the Spirit-filled occasion. The prayer led by Prophet T.B. Joshua further proved that, we as Christians, are drawn in an everlasting battle of supremacy with the kingdom of darkness. The prophecies also revealed the hidden antics of the devil while illuminating the lives of congregants with the resplendent fire of the Holy Spirit.

Speaking about the concept of faith, Prophet T.B. Joshua took Christians on an excursion into the nature and power of faith in their daily living as children of God. He urged them to cultivate Biblical faith which does not deny the existence of a problem and which “…must arise in each person’s heart based on the Word of God”. According to him, “Faith is not an issue of ordering God around”. He lamented the attitudes of some Christians who feel bad and lose faith in God whenever their prayers seem not answered. According to him, God knows best and has His reasons for not answering some prayers. “Who knows what would have happened to you if your prayer for a better life had been answered?” he said.

evangelist-gbengaEarlier in the service, Evangelist Gbenga, in his message, SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM, had called on believers to put the service of God first in every situation so that they may share in the endless glory that abounds in the Kingdom. He reminded them that life is more beneficial when lived in Christ than in the valueless things of the world: “This life is too short to waste time on things that have no lasting value”.

According to him, this world is not our home; our home is more precious and everlasting than this earth and thus, we are only wayfarers on earth: “This world is not our home. We are only passing through”. Even though this world is not our home, Evangelist Gbenga added that we need God to guide us through the rough edges of a wicked world full of evil and strife: “In our passage through this wicked world into our permanent home, we need God so that we will not dash our feet against a stone”. He also observed that the love of money and material possessions above God is evil, adding that, “When fame, wealth and authority come, we become too busy to serve God”.

Concluding, he urged Christians not to bother about their situations. Citing the account of Job who remained faithful in the face of all the calamities that befell him, he submitted that, “Whoever is great among men, it is God that made them so”.

TESTIMONIES

UNLIKELY SCHOLARSHIP MADE POSSIBLE BY THE POWER OF GOD

In July 2016, Mrs Veronica Nyathi had applied for admission at the University of South Africa  but received no response from the school. A month later, another school, the Gordon Institute of Business Science sent her a mail inviting her to apply for a scholarship. After applying for the scholarship, she embarked on a journey to The SCOAN. While on her way to Nigeria, the Gordon Institute of Business Science contacted her, requesting her availability for an interview. The South African was already at The SCOAN and would not leave the presence of God in a hurry. Having informed them of her mission to Nigeria, the school requested for a telephone interview. Veronica was unperturbed; instead she believed that the scholarship would have to wait for her.

After receiving prayers from Prophet T.B. Joshua, Veronica also received the Morning Water and headed back to South Africa. On her return home, she found another mail requesting for a telephone interview by the school. By the time she called them, they told her that it was too late as the scholarship offer had closed. Somehow, she was not moved by their discouraging response. She believed in her heart that her mission to The SCOAN was not going to be in vain. In a matter of days, the very same school which had told her that the scholarship offer had closed, called her to arrange for another telephone interview. During the interview, one of the panellists enquired about her mission to Nigeria. Veronica was quick to inform them that she had visited The SCOAN for prayers. The panellist surprised her by telling her she was blessed.

Though it was apparent to her that she did not do well in the interview, by the sheer grace of God, she received a mail the next day congratulating her for winning the scholarship offer. All expenses involved in her upcoming studies were shouldered by the school. Thanking God for making the scholarship possible, Mrs Veronica Nyathi ascribed her selection to God’s special grace and nothing else. She also described the scholarship as a rare privilege, citing the fact that the Gordon Institute of Business Science is among the best business schools in the world. While thanking God for also protecting her home later during a burglary incident, she advised people all over the world to live in faith no matter what they are going through, adding that with God, all things are possible.

THE ANOINTING TAKES DOWN LUMBAR SPONDYLOSIS

For eight years, Mrs Adeyanju could not walk as a result of lumbar spondylosis. She had been placed on many analgesics and had used a lumbar corset and knee brace but still could not walk. The fact that her problem started in the United Kingdom, a more advanced society in terms of medical equipment, did not improve her condition. Instead, it made matters worse as she would have to rely on aid to move around. She was almost incapacitated by her condition as she could neither carry out her domestic duties nor do any business. A friend would later introduce her to Emmanuel TV. She started watching the channel and built her faith. She also witnessed the healings that took place during the special healing service to commemorate the birthday of Prophet T.B. Joshua on June 12, 2016.

During the 2-day revival service at The SCOAN from 9 – 10 December, 2016, Mrs Adeyanju was brought to The SCOAN in a car. Prophet T.B. Joshua had to come out of the auditorium to minister healing to her. Laying hands on her and commanding her to stand up and walk, Mrs Adeyanju stood up and walked for the first time in many years. It was to the glory of God as people around, including her two daughters, celebrated her healing in the name of Jesus. During her testimony last Sunday, Mrs Adeyanju told congregants that she did not know how it happened. According to her, she only realised that she could suddenly walk. She also thanked God for using Prophet T.B. Joshua to deliver her daughters who accompanied her to The SCOAN that fateful day.“Trust in God and have faith in Him,” she advised people all over the world.

BLESSED AND FAVOURED THROUGH A PROPHETIC MESSAGE
During the 2012 Candle Light Service, Miss Rita Adzokatse was watching Emmanuel TV live from her home in Ghana. She had heard Prophet T.B. Joshua advise people to return to farming as a way out of the looming economic recession that would cripple many oil-dependent countries of the world. Keying into that prophetic message, Rita started a farm in 2013. Being a graduate of Animal Science, it was even more auspicious for her to engage in farming. And so, as she started the farm, she ministered the Morning Water on it, thereby involving God in the whole thing. In spite of all the challenges she encountered, she kept faith in God and continued to minister the Morning Water.

Early 2016, she was told about an organisation that supports young entrepreneurs and she went ahead to gather information about them. She subsequently applied for support after submitting a business plan. Rita was among 1,300 people whose applications were received and she knew it was going to be a serious battle. After processing the applications, 514 applicants were shortlisted for the next phase. From 514, the final list had 157 applicants shortlisted. Rita was one of the 157. A date was set for the final presentation and it was a 3-day process.

Having prepared for her presentation, Rita ministered the Morning Water and proceeded to the presentation venue. Before she started the presentation, she also ministered the Morning Water. After her presentation, the panel was impressed. Even though there were initial doubts, it was later discovered that she was a practising farmer. After the entire process, Rita returned home and continued praying with the man of God via Emmanuel TV while also ministering the Morning Water and remaining expectant of good news.

Two weeks later, Rita received a mail inviting her for an award. At the award, she received the highest financial support from the organisation to the tune of six thousand pounds. With the money, she acquired over 2,000 birds (layers) for her farm. Rita testified in the company of her sisters. She thanked God for finding her worthy of His favour. She advised people, especially youth who are unemployed, to embrace the prophetic message of Prophet T.B. Joshua concerning agriculture and create jobs for themselves instead of waiting for ready-made jobs.

UNCONTROLLABLE URINATION AND ITS ROOT CAUSE WIPED OUT BY THE HOLY PSIRIT

Mrs Rita Chukwuekwu suffered from uncontrollable urination due to vesicovaginal fistula. The indigene of Delta, Nigeria noticed the anomaly after she delivered a baby through caesarean session. To worsen matters, a surgical needle was also forgotten in her womb, making her need for another surgery very urgent. This myriad of problems made life very difficult for her. She could not breastfeed her baby properly as she found it difficult to sit down for long. She also used a catheter to pass out urine lest she mess up her body. This artificial living continued until she visited The SCOAN.

During a prayer session led by Prophet T.B. Joshua, Mrs Chukwuekwu cried out to the man of God about her problem. Led by the compassionate Spirit of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua laid hands on her and commanded the root cause of her problem out, in the mighty name of Jesus. In the twinkle of an eye, Mrs Chukwuekwu received and declared her healing to the glory of God. She returned to The SCOAN last Sunday to give her testimony in the company of family members.

Thanking God for healing her of an embarrassing health challenge, she lamented the near-death situation in which she had found herself, losing blood profusely and relying on all sorts of support to live. According to her, all that stopped as soon as Prophet T.B. Joshua touched her. Today, she is hale and hearty and is no longer living on medications. She now eats well and drinks water freely unlike in the past. “Put your hope and trust in God and He will see you through,” she advised people all over the world.

YOKE OF BDEWETTING DESTROYED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT

Miss Collette Umeokwara had been labouring under the yoke of bedwetting for a very longmiss-collette time. According to her, the problem started through a dream experience in which she had excused herself from a group of people to go and urinate, only to discover that the deed was also happening physically while she was sleeping on her bed. Since that experience, she had continued to suffer from the problem. She had had to cover up the embarrassing situation on several occasions, especially when she was in school and during her National Youth Service Corps programme.

She could not visit friends or family members because she did not want to embarrass herself. In her desperate search for a solution, Miss Umeokwara had resorted to serious prayers on her own but it appeared the affliction was beyond her capacity. She would eventually attend last Saturday’s prophetic service where the power of God located her through Prophet T.B. Joshua. The man of God saw her case and called her out. As soon as she stepped out from the congregation, Prophet T.B. Joshua commanded the spirit behind the affliction out of her life. As a demonstration of God’s power and victory over her problem, the young woman fell to the ground.

During her testimony last Sunday, she narrated the ordeal she faced while under the yoke of that affliction. According to her, ever since her deliverance, she has not had any of those evil dreams anymore. She thanked God for putting an end to the embarrassing situation she had battled with for years. She also advised people all over the world, especially those having similar challenges not to lose hope but to put their trust in God.

 

THREATENED MARRIAGE RESTORED BY PROPHECY

Mrs Catherine Tetteh and her husband had both had broken marriages prior to their union three years ago. While Catherine is in her third marriage, her husband is in his second. Their union as husband and wife had been threatened by a lot of misunderstanding occasioned by lack of affection and an unexplained incompatibility. Mrs Tetteh had been harbouring the thought of walking out of her third marriage but somehow reckoned that it was better she sought the face of God at The SCOAN before taking that decision.

mr-mrs-bongani-2During the last Prophetic service held at The SCOAN, the Zimbabwean living in South Africa visited the church in the company of her husband. While Prophet T.B. Joshua was ministering prophecy to congregants, the Holy Spirit led him to see her problem. Mrs Tetteh was moved to tears when Prophet T.B. Joshua told her about the thoughts in her mind concerning her marriage and how she had walked out of previous marriages. The man of God also revealed to her that a spirit was behind all the disappointments she had gone through in all her marriages.

As Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied to Mrs Tetteh, her husband also came out to receive his own part of the prophecy. The man of God prophesied that the man had quit his first marriage without God releasing him. He also told Mrs Tetteh that she quit her previous marriages without God releasing her. In effect, both husband and wife were victims of failed marriages due to their own impatience and decision not to wait on God. Even though a spirit was behind their marital crisis, they inadvertently made matters worse by side-lining God in the entire equation.

After the prophecy, the couple received counselling and prayers from Prophet T.B. Joshua. They came to The SCOAN last Sunday to thank God for restoring their marriage. While Mrs Tetteh was happy that God revealed the root cause of their problems, her husband expressed joy that God’s opinion about his marriage was confirmed through Prophet T.B. Joshua. “No one can address the problems we face, only God. So, run to Him,” he advised people all over the world.

DELIVERED FROM THE SPIRIT OF CANNIBALISM

The young man was initiated into cannibalism by his mother when he was a child. He grew up to relish human flesh to the extent that he would go to the graveyard to exhume corpses through magical powers and devour them in company of fellow cannibals. Most times, he would dig holes and ditches in his room and trap unsuspecting persons whom he would eventually kill for onward consumption together with his cannibalistic allies. According to the Ugandan, the spirit of cannibalism which his mother afflicted him with through some herbal concoction, was one that could not be easily resisted. Whenever it came upon him, he became blood-thirsty like a lion and began to look unrelentingly for human flesh to consume.

The spirit had sent him to jail on several occasions and yet there was no end in sight to his unwholesome appetite for human flesh. He continued to eat human flesh and had even lost count of the number of people he and his cohorts had eaten. After coming in contact with Emmanuel TV during one of his prison experiences, the young man vowed that he would be delivered at The SCOAN. During the last prophetic service at The SCOAN, he was spotted by Prophet T.B. Joshua and received his deliverance in the mighty name of Jesus.

Testifying last Sunday, he told congregants about the change that has taken place in his life. According to him, the urge to eat human flesh has since disappeared from his life. He no longer experiences those nocturnal encounters with spirits. Instead, the peace from Heaven has taken over his soul. He reminded congregants and people all over the world that “everything can be done in Jesus’ name,” when you seek first the Kingdom.

The SCOAN Revival Service witnessed a massive turnout of people from different parts of the world. Arriving in their thousands, the sick and all others who had one issue or the other believed that Jesus Christ would turn their situations around. The first day of the revival was power-packed. The man of God ministered healing to a multitude of people, including those who had been confined to wheelchairs for years, HIV/AIDS patients, people with mental challenges and those with various spiritual problems. The power of God was at its zenith on that day, being Friday, December 9, 2016. Many people who had received their healing in the past also turned out to share their testimonies as a boost of faith for those believing God for theirs.

prophet-t-b-joshuaOn Saturday, December 10, 2016, Prophet T.B. Joshua led the Prophetic Service that saw a lot of hidden problems unfolded concerning many congregants. The man of God also gave insights into what the future holds for some. Many also received deliverance through prophetic words. During Mass Prayer, many were set free from the oppression of the devil. Sunday, December 11, 2016 witnessed a plethora of testimonies to the glory of God. The entire service was brought to a powerful end with songs of praise and worship after evangelists ministered the Morning Water to congregants.

In his message titled YOUR FAITH WILL NOT FAIL, the man of God reminded Christians of their place in the world, stating that, though they may encounter challenges, they will always come out triumphant because they are in Christ Jesus Who is the Author and Finisher of their faith. According to the man of God, “If you are genuinely born again, nothing can separate you. Your faith may fail but not utterly.” Speaking further, he told Christians that they are not above attack. Citing the experience of Job, he submitted that, though satan may seek permission from God to test a Christian’s faith, he cannot destroy him/her: “As it was with Job, with God’s permission, satan can tempt or attack you but cannot destroy you. In the same light, if you are a true born again Christian, satan can attack you only if God permits.”

The man of God concluded by urging Christians to brace up for the coming year 2017, crowdadding that they must learn to live within their incomes. He warned against unnecessary spending and extravagance. He also advised them on certain management principles that will see them through the economic downturn that is affecting nations all over the world: “This coming year, you have to learn to cut your coat according to your size.”

TESTIMONIES

CANNIBAL EXPOSED AND DELIVERED DURING PROPHETIC SERVICE

Coming from a family that had a terrible reputation in witchcraft and other fetish cannibal-exposedactivities, the young man from Uganda lived a very horrible life. He was a cannibal that went to the extent of exhuming corpses from cemeteries just to eat them together with his fellow cannibals. He had dug a deep pit in his house in which he would push unsuspecting victims into. If the fall did not kill them, he would finish them off and eat their flesh fresh. Aside from his cannibalistic appetite, the young man also lived a wayward life fathering five different children with five different women. His actions took a toll on his mental state as he always thought he was going to run mad.

cannibal-exposedWhen his activities got to public domain, he was arrested and was even sent to prison a few times. He later encountered Emmanuel TV and discovered that God is at work at The SCOAN. It was the psychological burden of all his atrocities that brought him to The SCOAN to seek for deliverance. According to him, he knew it was only Prophet T.B. Joshua that could deliver him. During the prophetic service last Saturday, the Ugandan was fished out by Prophet T.B. Joshua through a prophetic Word and the urge to eat his fellow human beings left him. After that encounter, the young man confessed all his evil deeds, declaring that he has been delivered by God through Prophet T.B. Joshua. He vowed never to go back to his evil past and also pledged to continue in the ways of the Lord.

 

MALIGNANT LEG ULCER/SKIN DISEASE SUCCUMB TO THE POWER OF GOD

mrs-mariaFor six years, Mrs Maria Ikezue battled with a malignant leg ulcer and skin disease that rendered her incapable of doing many things. First, it immobilised her, making it difficult for her to carry out most of her domestic chores. For the woman who hails from Anambra State, Nigeria, life was at its lowest ebb. She could not cook for her children but rather depended on them for her daily survival. They aided her every effort to the extent that whenever she wanted to ease herself, they had to get a bucket for her. The severe pains that came with the ulcer also gave her a hell of a time. Mrs Ikezue visited many churches, native doctors and hospitals but could not find a solution.

One day while lamenting her condition, she had sought the help of her brother who advised her to visit The SCOAN. Mrs Ikezue heeded her brother’s advice and came down to The SCOAN. She proceeded to the Prayer Line where it took just a touch from the man of God to end her years of pain and anguish. According to her, as soon as the man of God touched her, she felt something fly out of her and that was it. By the night of that very day, she had woken up from sleep to discover that the watery sore on her leg had miraculously dried up. Thanking God during her testimony, she advised people all over the world to desist from visiting native doctors as they have no solution to offer. She however urged them to run to Jesus who remains the solution to all the fundamental problems of life.

HIV/AIDS DESTROYED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT

Mr Adams had been treating Malaria and Typhoid for five years but unknown to him then, mr-julius-adamshe was carrying the deadly disease called HIV/AIDS. For those five years, he experienced a lot of pains and discomfort accompanied by many sleepless nights. In the year 2000, Mr Julius Adams visited the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital known then as Ayinke General Hospital. There, he was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. After the result of the test was made known to him, Mr Adams knew he had only one option to seek God’s intervention or die slowly and painfully too. By this time, he was already aware of the awe-inspiring exploits of Prophet T.B. Joshua in the vineyard of God and decided to visit The SCOAN.

According to him, when he arrived at The SCOAN, he discovered that there were several other people who had the same problem. The man of God ushered them into the auditorium in a queue with each carrying a placard displaying their problems. As soon as the man of God stretched his hand towards Mr Adams, something unforgettable happened. A dark shadow came out of his body. While he was still trying to contain his bewilderment, the shadow had disappeared. Right from that moment, all the symptoms of HIV/AIDS that he had exhibited for five years ceased to be. There was even more bewilderment when he returned to the hospital for a confirmation test. After the test, the doctor was shocked beyond description as to how the incurable disease disappeared from his system. Mr Adams had to ‘educate’ the doctor on the omnipotence of God.

Thanking God for bringing him back from a state of hopelessness, near-death and anguish to one of hope, life and joy, he advised people all over the world to hold on to God, adding that He is the only One who can cure HIV/AIDS which has continued to defy medical solution to date.

“I CAN HEAR AGAIN!” – Hungarian Healed By Jesus Christ

evelyn-balassy-3Evelyn Balassy had come all the way from Hungary to The SCOAN with the problem of severe hearing loss. Since the tender age of eight years, she had experienced this problem which had made her a public spectacle because of the great embarrassment it caused. She was operated on at a young age but it didn’t change her condition. She was still unable to hear anything with her right ear. She was forced to wear a evelyn-balassy-2hearing aid which caused her great discomfort as the only temporary relief to her problem. The doctors had told her that it was nerve damage in her ears that caused the hearing loss and that it would never improve; she simply had to live with it for the rest of her life. Upon coming to The SCOAN in desperate search for a final solution to her predicament, she received a divine touch from God Almighty through His servant, Prophet T.B. Joshua. After she received her healing, she started hearing normally with her right ear and no longer has to use the hearing aid! Now, she can hear perfectly and she has been restored to the glory of God!

MR ANTHONY AND 29 OTHERS HEALED OF INABILITY TO WALK

mr-anthony-familyAssistant Superintendent Laar Anthony of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps had been on the wheelchair for two months. He woke up one day to discover that he could not walk, having lost sensation in his legs. He was taken to many hospitals and churches but there was no sign of improvement in his condition. He also tried native medicine which also did not offer any reprieve. Through the help of his family, Anthony was introduced to The SCOAN. During the 2-day revival service held from December 9 to 11, 2016, he was among the multitude of people who received their healing.

Anthony was healed by God through Prophet T.B. Joshua who only laid hands on him and mr-anthony-family-2commanded him to walk. As soon as Anthony got up on his feet, there was jubilation amongst his family members who came with him. One of them lifted his wheelchair to show the world how marvelous the works of God are. Anthony was among 29 other people who were healed of inability to walk due to various medical conditions. After their healing, the man of God gave the thirty of them two bags of rice each and the sum of twenty thousand naira each for their transportation back to their different destinations.

Thanking God for his healing, Anthony could not conceal his joy. He described the day of his healing as a new chapter in the story of his life and thanked the man of God for reaching out to them materially, especially at a time when the entire nation is feeling the effects of the economic recession ravaging it.

 

YOKE OF ADDICTION TO DRUGS BROKEN BY THE ANOINTING

Mr Jaspal Bharya had been addicted to cannabis smoking from a very young age. TheMR JASPAL BHARYA.jpg Tanzanian became unrestrictedly free when he travelled to the United Kingdom to further his education. There, he enjoyed unlimited freedom compared to those times when he had to hide from his parents in order to satisfy his urge for smoking. His addiction took a terrible toll on his finances as he would sell his personal effects just to satiate his appetite for cannabis. He sold his wrist watches, gold chains and phone.

For twenty-two years, Mr Bharya lived with his addiction. He became confused and could not concentrate on any useful venture. Apart from cannabis, he also experimented with cocaine and other hard drugs. Because of his untoward behavior, he was humiliated by family members who found it hard to come to terms with the shame he was bringing to them. Somehow, he became an outcast. During his younger years, his parents also stopped giving him pocket money. Later in life, even his marriage was not spared as he was separated from his wife and children as a result of his bad lifestyle.

Mr Bharya got to know about Prophet T.B. Joshua through his father. The Tanzanian who now resides in the UK visited The SCOAN and received his deliverance from the man of God. According to him, the day he arrived at The SCOAN, he was looking for a way to go and take his drugs but thank God that after his deliverance, that evil urge had gone for good. He now sleeps better and has peace in his life. He urged people all over the world, especially smokers and non-smokers to desist from the act as it comes with many negative health consequences.

PROPHETIC WORD ON AGRICULTURE TRANSFORMS AN ENTIRE COMMUNITY

mr-richard-nkhwaziTwo years ago, Prophet T.B. Joshua had released a prophetic word, urging congregants and nations all over the world to return to agriculture, adding that the reliance on oil will soon spell doom for many countries of the world. Back in Malawi, Mr Richard Nkhwazi was watching Emmanuel TV and was inspired by the prophetic word. He thereafter conveyed the message to his entire community which had 24, 000 hectares of uncultivated land. Most of the inhabitants of that community were rustic poor people who could not finance any form of agricultural project on their own and so, needed support.

Mr Nkhwazi therefore solicited the support of a private organisation which got interested and provided some financial support to the community. As cultivation began, the Malawian government also got involved and made available funds for the construction of dams, canals and other useful resources. Other private organisations from India and South Africa also got involved, making the project a very huge one with international status. With the level of investments channeled into the project, it will create jobs for many and also provide food for the community and beyond. According to Mr Nkhwazi, over 5,000 thousand people, including the less privileged will benefit from the project.

Thanking God for granting him the grace to key into the prophetic word of the man of God, Mr Nkhwazi urged people all over the world to take the words of a prophet seriously because they convey the righteous thoughts of God.

THE BLOOD OF JESUS WIPES AWAY EVERY EVIL BLOOD

Since 2011, she had been bleeding through all the orifices in her body. She also hadhope nightmares in which strange people would forcefully sleep with her while others tried to inflict bodily injuries on her. She also dreamt of strange beings with odd frames. While all that happened, Hope would not tell her mother. She preferred to keep it all to herself. By the year 2013, the attacks had become so recurrent that she could no longer hide them. She would bleed from her eyes, nose, ears and skin. Most times, her pillows were stained by the blood from her eyes, nose and ears.

The young South African became depressed with the strange developments happening right in her own body. There was a time she started having prolonged menstruation which would span 40 days at a time. Her aunt would eventually let the cat out of the bag by reporting the matter to her mother. When her mother confronted her about the whole saga, Hope cried. But alas, her tears were bloody. It got to an extent that her friends in school started deserting her because they believed she was an evil child. In search of spiritual solace, she would resort to reading her Bible but each time she did, she wept blood. Because of the seeming insoluble nature of her problems, she had considered suicide on several occasions.

A mysterious hair loss also set in to compound her already complicated case. Hope tried to HOPE 3.jpggive hope to her mother by covering up the hair loss issue. The financial implication of her travails was immense as she had to be placed on a lot of medications which ended up proving unbeneficial. The family was able to visit The SCOAN months back and Hope was delivered during a Sunday service through the ministration of the Morning Water. The young woman who was raped three times, first at age 8, had surely seen many horrible things in her life. But since after her deliverance, behold, old things have passed away and all things have become new in Christ Jesus. The bleeding, the depression and the suicidal thoughts have given way to the peace of God.

Thanking God in company of her mother and sister, Hope advised young people all over the world not to focus on their circumstances but to concentrate on Jesus because He cares for them. According to her, no matter the situation, God still Has something to say. She also urged them to make God’s Word the standard for their lives.

SPIRIT OF SUICIDE PUT TO END BY JESUS CHRIST

mrs-heide-menzel“Since I was born, I would always cry.” Mrs Heide Menzel, from Germany, grew up with a feeling of rejection from her father, since childhood. From the age of six years old, she would always ask God why she was even alive. From that young age, she even tried committing suicide. This became a regular occurrence in her life, trying and failing to end her life. There was not a single night that went by that Mrs Heide would not dream of death. “I felt rejected and imprisoned in my own body. I always thought something was wrong with me.”

Realising that this problem was not one that she wanted to carry for the rest of her life, she began seeking a solution. Coming from a religious home, she tried to get close to Jesus Christ but always felt like there was barrier between her and God. She became so desperate that she started trying anything, including dry fasting, to attract the attention of God. “No matter what I did, I always felt a barrier because I was trying to force the hand of God.” She started reading books about deliverance and began to search YouTube for deliverance ministries. That was how she came across Emmanuel TV. After watching a few times, she became hooked and began to feel there was hope for her situation. She could relate to so many of the testimonies that she had seen and had a strong urge to come to The SCOAN. This desire came to fruition last Sunday as she partook in the Live Service.

The Spirit of God located her as Prophet TB Joshua gave her a word of prophecy saying, “You are depressed. There is a suicide problem from your father’s side.” It finally made sense! For so many years she didn’t know what the cause of her pain was, to now discover that it was a spirit of suicide tormenting her. She came to The SCOAN feeling so desperate, but after receiving deliverance from the evil spirit, she has now come to testify to the glory of God for her newfound freedom. The burden lifted and feeling like a new person, she testified, “I now feel joy and I feel so full of love.” She gave a strong word of advice to all who were listening, “Please endure – don’t end your life because Jesus loves you so much!”

“I CAME, UNABLE TO WALK BUT LEFT, WALKING!”

mrs-alice-amaraMrs Alice Amara and daughter came to The SCOAN for the Friday Healing Service in a vehicle because she couldn’t walk for the past five years. She had lumbar spondylosis which had rendered her completely unable to cater for her own needs, even the most basic and necessary ones! She had gone to many orthopaedics and hospitals, searching for a solution but they were all unable to provide any relief to her ever-nagging pain. She confessed that in search for healing, she had gone to many spiritualists who had demanded for her to pay up to 50,000 naira for her to receive that miracle. Unfortunately, after paying the required amounts at various places, the solution never came. She decided to come to The SCOAN, saying to herself
that it would be her last bus mrs-alice-amara-2stop. As she arrived at The SCOAN, she remained in her car outside of the church because she was unable to walk by herself into the auditorium. As the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua came out of the church to pray for her, she received her healing and immediately started walking majestically, all to the glory of God. Since that day, she can walk freely, painless and limitless, all thanks to the resurrection power of Jesus Christ!

Finally, she is advising viewers to believe in Jesus Christ, who is able to heal and set us free, for His glory.

DYING MAN COMPLETELY RESTORED

mrs-yevgeniy-leeIn 2015, Mrs. Yevgeniy Lee from Kazakhstan received dreadful news about her US-based brother-in-law that he had been shot in the stomach. The bullet, fired by an unknown gang, had penetrated the stomach and ruptured his spinal cord. In the aftermath of the onslaught, the functionality of her brother-in-law’s brain began to dwindle. His vital organs started to fail, resulting in loss of senses in his limbs. His body deteriorated by the second. The medical doctors and nurses assigned to his case had all given up on any hope of Mrs. Yevgeniy Lee’s brother-in-law ever recovering. He remained in a coma, with no hope in sight that any part of his muscles would ever be able to coordinate any movement of his body again. Disturbed by the fact that his sensory organs had been compromised, he had been reduced to a vegetative state and placed on life support in the hospital, the family in both the US and his native Kazakhstan collectively wrote to The SCOAN to seek the face of God.

In December 2015, Mrs. Yevgeniy Lee came to The SCOAN. Although bad news coming in from the US about her brother-in-law were disturbing enough to distract her focus, she continued to pray. After being prayed for by the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, the prophet requested to see a photograph of Mrs. Yevgeniy Lee’s brother-in-law and prayed for him.

After her visit to The SCOAN, all the bad news about Mrs. Yevgeniy Lee’s brother-in-law turned into non-stop good news. Doctors who had booked her in-law for further surgical operations that would have included a kidney transplant, had to cancel the surgery because of the rapid pace at which the young man was making a recovery. All his vital organs bounced back to full life. Doctors, who had once claimed he would never walk again, were left baffled to see how God’s miracle got them to change their confessions. They watched in awe as Mrs. Yevgeniy Lee’s brother-in-law started to eat, talk and walk freely without any support. One of the nurses, who also thought the young man was certain to die, was so dumbstruck by God’s awesome miracle in the man’s life that she fell in love with him and subsequently they got married. The nurse, who never believed in the existence of God, has now given her life to Jesus Christ. The couple has been blessed with a child to the glory of God.

Sharing their joy with the world, Mrs and Mr Yevgeniy Lee advised the congregation and viewers all over the world not to lose faith in God because He is in control and that He will see them through.

prophet-t-b-joshua

The faith of the congregants was lifted up as they listened to the divine teachings from Prophet T.B. Joshua in a message titled, ‘Pay Attention To God.’ Aside from the awe-inspiring testimonies and beautiful renditions from the choir, Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke extensively on the concept of faith and how Christians are expected to apply it to their lives. According to the man of God, “If you pay attention to God’s Word, you will find that faith comes spontaneously, that is naturally.” He further observed that one cannot have faith by just memorising the Word of God. “It is good to memorize; it is valuable but it must become an integral part of you.” He likened memorising the Bible without it being a part of you to storing water in the mouth without swallowing it: it is a waste. “To live the Bible is to allow it to become an integral part of us.”
The man of God also reminded Christians that being in possession of the Bible or bearing the name “Christian” does not confer on them the privilege of having faith. Instead, faith is only available in those whom Jesus knows: “That you have a Bible or are a Christian does not mean you have faith, until Jesus knows you.”
Summing up his message, the man of God observed that “The Word of God is Spirit that has the ability to develop a spiritual force within our hearts called faith.”
EVANGELIST RACINE.jpg

In an earlier message titled ORDER YOUR WORDS ARIGHT, Evangelist Racine urged Christians to rise above the challenges and trials of life by confessing victory and triumph even in the face of the discouraging realities of life, adding that many people today are unnecessarily weighed down by their earthly worries: “Many people are walking in their situation. They murmur and grumble and speak as common people.” According to him, the life of a Christian will always go to the level of his or her words. He also noted that good Christians would surely have their faith tested as a mark of spiritual maturity and growth in the knowledge of the things of God: “As a man or woman of faith, your faith will be tested by facts and experience. Tests and trials are meant for our belief. Trials and temptations determine where you are spiritually. Prophet T.B. Joshua says that challenges reveal the true condition of our heart.”
Continuing, he urged Christians to repose their faith in God in all circumstances, stressing that, “We overcome by faith. Faith is a force that moves our words to work.” Evangelist Racine also reminded Christians that faith acts on the Word of God which is a reflection of His will: “The Word is a seed of divine life that comes into the heart and causes faith to grow.” He therefore encouraged believers to observe their supplications in accordance with the will of God: “When you ask and pray according to His will, your prayer is answered.”
Concluding, he urged Christians to realise who they really are and the power they wield as children of God. “There is power in your mouth. The belief in your heart is released by faith out of your mouth. God’s Word in the midst of your heart gives you an authority in Heaven.”

TESTIMONIES
NO MAN CAN KIDNAP FIRE
mr-mrs-john-ughomadu

Mr and Mrs John Ughamadu were targeted to be kidnapped but escaped by whiskers. However, the same could not be said of their house help and a neighbour’s wife who were whisked away by the criminals. Soon after they were abducted, a communication ensued between the abductors and the victims’ families. The abductors were a bit disappointed when they realised that the person they had thought was Mr Ughamadu’s wife was in actual fact his house help, an orphan who they had adopted as their child. Their disappointment was inconsequential as it did not stop them from placing a ransom of one hundred million naira each on the two women.
After several pleas from Mr Ughamadu and his neighbour, the kidnappers called to inform them that the ransom had been reduced to fifty million naira each. But even at that, the money involved was just too much for the men. At that juncture, Mr Ughamadu who had been a staunch member of The SCOAN and an Emmanuel TV Partner, summoned courage and decided to exercise his faith. He put a call through to The SCOAN Prayer and Counselling hotlines. An evangelist picked up his call and listened carefully to his dilemma. The evangelist urged him to call the kidnappers and tell them that the house help is a spiritual daughter to Prophet T.B. Joshua and that they should release her unconditionally.
When Mr Ughamadu communicated the evangelist’s instruction to the kidnappers, there was apparent confusion in their camp and for the first time in a couple of days, he was allowed to speak with his adopted daughter. Sensing that their deal was already undone by the mere mention of the name T.B. Joshua, they resorted to keeping Mr Ughamadu incommunicado and shifted their attention to his neighbour. But all efforts to extort money from him also failed. Left with no other option and perturbed by fear, the criminals eventually released the women after sixteen days of captivity.
During their testimony last Sunday at The SCOAN Mr and Mrs Ughamadu, in company of their house help and adopted daughter, thanked God for the marvellous thing He has done in their lives. Both husband and wife as well as the girl took turns to praise Him for what He Has done. They were unanimous in their advice to people all over the world: “Hold on to your faith and don’t give up. Your faith in God will see you through.”
THE POWER OF GOD – TOO HOT FOR LIVER INFECTION
cpl-yerima-2

Corporal Yerimah Ojoh was on a United Nations Peace-keeping Mission in Darfur, Sudan, when he suddenly developed a strange ailment that rendered him bedridden. The Nigerian soldier had to rely on colleagues for support in order to walk to and from hospital. After various hospitals in Darfur failed to diagnose the cause of his problem, he was referred to a specialised military hospital. It was there that doctors discovered that he had a liver infection that defied medical solution. While the military authorities in Sudan were making arrangements to redeploy him and another sick soldier back to Nigeria, in the event that their conditions deteriorate, Corporal Ojoh summoned faith and decided to pray along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on a colleague’s laptop in their hostel.
After that prayer, an incident he would never forget occurred that night. In a trance-like encounter, a voice beckoned on him to rise from the bed. As he arose, he found two of his own frame still lying on the bed. The voice then went on to say. “I created you without any problem. Now, these two bodies represent you. Which of them do you want? The one with sickness or the one without sickness?” Corporal Ojoh who also doubles as a pastor answered and chose the body without sickness. He was then told to enter the body without sickness by the voice. As soon as he entered that body, a strange but fresh surge of energy came into his body. He went into jubilation and was joined by other soldiers in praising God. Since that day, he has had no cause to visit the hospital save for a confirmation test he carried out on the advice of his wife. The result showed that his liver function was normal.
Testifying at The SCOAN last Sunday, Corporal Ojoh thanked God for restoring his health even when he was on the throes of death. He however regretted the death of his colleague who was referred to Nigeria but could not make it home alive. He also urged ministers of God to jettison the politics and sentiments of denominationalism and work together as one family of Christ. He left the following advice to sick people all over the world: “You should connect to God by faith through the prayer of Prophet T.B. Joshua.”
HOLY SPIRIT ENDS THE REIGN OF A SPIRIT WIFE
He had been tormented by a spirit wife right from his childhood. Mr Innocent Chinedu would find himself eating and having sexual intercourse in the dream. He experienced stagnation and could not have a successful marriage because each time he tried to settle down with a woman, the spirit wife would wreak havoc and frighten the woman away. The Nigerian living in the USA would eventually have an encounter with God through Emmanuel TV. While flipping through TV channels in his home in the United States, he came across the testimony of a brother who had the same spirit wife issue on Emmanuel TV. The mere fact that the brother received his deliverance ignited Mr Chinedu’s faith with passion and a sense of urgency to push for his own.mr-mrs-innocent-brother
Remembering how the ruthless spirit wife had destroyed his earlier marriages, Mr Chinedu decided to pray along with the man of God on Emmanuel TV. In April, 2013, he laid his hands on the TV screen and prayed with the man of God. In an instant, he felt something get out of his body while a heat sensation took all over him. After a while, he felt a breath of fresh air. That same 2013, Mr Chinedu returned to Nigeria and got married to his new wife without any problem. When he went back to the USA after his wedding, he had a strange dream encounter in which the man of God woke him from sleep to alert him of the physical presence of an evil bat trying to attack him in his room. Mr Chinedu finally hit the bat down and sprinkled the Morning Water on it. After disposing of the dead bat, Mr Chinedu’s life further changed for the better.
Even business-wise, he is doing well. He no longer has financial challenges. Indeed, God has turned his life around. Testifying in company of his wife and brother, Mr Chinedu expressed profound gratitude to the Almighty God for bringing total peace into his life. He advised people all over the world to install Emmanuel TV in their homes because it brings the presence of God.
DELIVERED FROM DEMONIC OPRESSION
mr-james-brother

Mr James Joseph was sent to school to study but decided to pursue other fancies. He jettisoned his academic pursuits and dabbled into cultism, alcoholism, drug use and night-crawling. He would use his school fees and allowances to drink alcohol and sniff cocaine in company of his friends who shared his kind of thinking and attitude. Matters got worse for him to the extent that his elder sister began to see him in her dreams lurking around the corners of death. She had to intervene through pleas for him to come down to Lagos and encounter God at The SCOAN.
Mr Joseph visited The SCOAN on 20th December, 2015 and was caught in a cross-fire of the Morning Water ministration against all the antics of the kingdom of darkness. As soon as the Morning Water hit him, the evil spirit tormenting him manifested and was cast out of him. After his deliverance, Mr Joseph’s life has taken a very promising and glorious shape. Those irresponsible behaviours have taken flight. He enjoys an unprecedented inner peace and has since reconciled with his parents who had been grossly disappointed with his former ways of life. Mr Joseph has since completed his studies and has been awarded a degree in Biochemistry, despite having missed several papers due to his former ways of life. Thanking God in company of his in-law, Mr Joseph regretted the time he wasted living an irresponsible life. He called on youths to avoid evil associations. He advised them to give God a chance in their lives.
SHATTERED LEG RECEIVES DIVINE OPERATION
miss-otaru-2

Miss Otaru Evelyn was involved in a tricycle accident in September last year. Her leg was seriously affected to the extent that on-lookers and even the doctor who later attended to her said she was going to undergo amputation because according to them, the leg was badly damaged. But Miss Otaru would not bulge. She insisted on going God’s way much to the consternation of the doctor who threatened to send her home for being unnecessarily stubborn. She demanded for her wallet and from it brought out a Good Morning Sticker and placed it on her leg. There was an instant effect. A leg that had remained unimaginably stiff, gradually became flexible.
The doctor, unable to convince her to accept amputation, sent her home. But for Miss Otaru, she was being pushed to exercise her faith in God. Back home, everyone avoided her because of the offensive nature of her wound. Miss Otaru was unperturbed. Instead, she sent for the Morning Water. As she intensified her prayers with the ministration of the Morning Water, miraculously, the pieces of dead bones fell off Miss Otaru’s affected leg and she was eventually healed, against all odds and discouraging remarks by people around her who had thought she would end up as an amputee. It could only have been God for a leg which was badly damaged to heal completely. During her testimony, a visibly elated Miss Otaru advised people all over the world to hold on to God because there is nothing He cannot do.
RESCUED FROM THE YOKES OF POVERTY AND INDEBTEDNESS
Mr Godwin Adiga was a successful businessman until the devil came onto the scene. A man who ran a petrol station became indebted, stagnated and oppressed by the spirit of lack. The more he and his wife sought help from different places, the more heartbroken they became. There was a church that asked them to sell one of their trucks and sow a seed into the ministry. As they grappled with the debts on their shoulders, the bank that they were indebted to even threatened to dispose of their petrol station in order to recoup their money.mr-godwin-family
A friend of the family told Mr Adiga about The SCOAN and advised him to seek the face of God there. Mr Adiga visited The SCOAN last year and received his deliverance during the ministration of the Morning Water. The spirit wife and family idol that had been oppressing him all manifested before they were sent back to the pit of hell. After his deliverance, many changes occurred in his life. The spirit of anger and lack of affection for his wife have all gone for good. He has paid off all his debt and now has more than enough to take care of his family. His business has also returned to boom time. Mr Adiga had the following words of advice for people all over the world: “When you are going through the storms of life, always focus on God and stop doubting.”

RESCUED AND DELIVERED FROM THE SNARES OF AN EVIL WOMAN
ghana-brother

When Emmanuel enrolled at a university in his native Ghana to read Maritime, little did he know that striking acquaintance with a strange woman he’d caught sight of a first time would soon evolve into another journey in parallel to his academic pursuit. It all began when he offered to give her a lift home on his way from the university campus. It was there that a strange relationship started – and with it, his freedom drifted away. The first thing that she told him was that every first female in her family are kept for two weeks in a room and covered with red oil in a ritual. He did not consider it strange.
The relationship reached a crescendo and became almost undoable to the extent that the lady threatened to kill him if he ever dared to leave her. The young man received the shock of his life when the lady intercepted him while he was urinating and dipped her finger into his pee and back into her mouth. As bamboozled as he was, he took the whole thing as part of the oddities of a love relationship. Afterwards, whenever he wanted to urinate, the lady would kneel in front of him and drink his urine.
The despicable routine continued while Emmanuel became lost in sin. He was enmeshed in fornication and pornography and lost complete focus on his academic pursuits. She wanted to be happy at all times; she never bothered about his own happiness. She ensured that he never communicated with anyone else except her. Even calling his mother on phone led to quarrels. She bought him everything and made it impossible for him to receive anything from anyone else. According to him, the body cream she always bought for him enabled her to know his exact location at all times.
Emmanuel was shell-shocked when he saw a dog that she had given him consuming the urine he had passed out on the sand. And for the fact that the dog remained the same size all the while, he became suspicious. Emmanuel suddenly became an induced glutton. She would encourage him to eat and eat and eat until he started bloating. His manhood also started feeling funny. By this time, his academic performance had become abysmal.
Emmanuel had an encounter with Emmanuel TV and since that day, he started worshipping with The SCOAN in Ghana. As he intensified his fellowship with the children of God and continued to watch Emmanuel TV, he discovered that some of the things he used to do no longer appealed to him. Even the lady was surprised when he told her he was no longer interested in the immoral acts they carried out together. Emmanuel suddenly realised that his understanding had been held captive by the devil. On one occasion, he found the lady with a lot of snakes on her head. After that frightening experience, he attended a Sunday service in the Ghana branch of The SCOAN and received his deliverance through the Morning Water medium.
During his deliverance testimony last Sunday, Emmanuel recounted how he was always flying in his dreams and having sexual intercourse with strange people. According to the young man who is presently living in the United States of America, he has since graduated from the university and is doing very well now. He is gainfully employed and is no longer connected to the lady. He is married with a son and is expecting another child soon. Emmanuel advised people all over the world in the following words: “This battle is not against flesh and blood but against powers and principalities.”

It was an atmosphere filled with the power of God. From the ministration of the choir to the ministration of the Morning Water, the kingdom of darkness was thrown into confusion. Evangelists led the initial onslaught against satan and his evil works as they ministered the Morning Water to the congregation. As the anointing in the Morning Water hit the target, many who were possessed and oppressed by evil spirits manifested and fell under the influence of the Holy Spirit. As the battle raged on, the host of Heaven inflicted heavy casualties on the kingdom of darkness as the afflicted and oppressed were delivered and set free from the grip of the devil.

prophet Ministering prophecy, Prophet T.B. Joshua laid hands on many congregants who came with different challenges. As obstinate as the challenges were, the power of prophecy laid them bare and offered spiritual insight on how they can be solved. In addition, the man of God also ministered deliverance to congregants even as they confirmed the prophecies to be very true. Admonishing congregants, the man of God enjoined them not to focus on their challenges but to focus on their Creator who is greater than all challenges: “We talk about the battle instead pf the One fighting for us.”

He encouraged Christians to maintain a joyful disposition in times of trouble, sickness or hardship, stressing that no hardship or sickness would last if we are happy from the heart: “Once you stop trading your joy with your situation, you always overcome.” He also urged Christians to pray for God’s grace so as not to fall prey to the pressures of the world: “Lord Jesus, give me the grace not to be ignorant of my faith under the pressure or tension of temptation.” A brother who was under the yoke of a generational stomach ulcer testified to his miraculous healing after the man of God laid hands on him.

Several testimonies sent via email were also read out concerning how Prophet T.B. Joshua’s message the previous Sunday titled, ‘Let God Release You’ had brought reconciliation and peace to many lives and homes.

Earlier, Evangelist Evelyn Joshua in her message titled YOUR TRUE IDENTITY, called on Christians to embrace the Spirit of God and abide by the dictates of His Word rather than long ignorantly for the freedom of the world which comes with many negative effects.evang-evelyn According to her, it is man’s endless quest for freedom that has jeopardised his relationship with God: “The quest for freedom brought us out from where God had placed us.” She further explained that true freedom comes from God and described it thus: “Freedom is when you are no longer under the dominion, control and captivity of satan.” In furtherance of her submission that we can only have our true identity through God, she added: “In God, you move, live and have your being… Only God can tell what we are because He judges men by their hearts.” Concluding, she left the following counsel for Christians: “Believe in God’s Word; confess the Word every day and do not change your confession every other day.”

Talking about his prophecies for the year 2016, the man of God recalled that the things he said have come to pass. A couple of congregants also corroborated what the man of God said. Some families told congregants how they were able to beat the ongoing recession by storing food items after the man of God had made the 2016 prophecies last year. Concerning the year 2017, the man of God told congregants, “YOUR FAITH WILL NOT FAIL.” According to him, the coming year will come with serious challenges but he urged those who put their trust in God not to panic as God would see them through. He described 2017 as the bridge that will lead to a refreshing period in 2018, stating that there will be a general sense of reprieve in the second month of that year.

Meanwhile, a delegation of Hausa men from the northern Nigerian state of Jigawa led by Mallam Mohammed Ali visited The SCOAN in search of help from the man of God. According to the group, the man of God had always sent foodstuff and cash to them but for a while now, the largesse has not been forthcoming.27-11-2016-glo-527-11-16 [OLI] (6).jpg27-11-16 [OLI] (3).jpg  Mallam Mohammed Ali and his group therefore decided to come to the church to make their pleas known. They lamented the largescale hunger and deprivation they have been suffering for some time, adding that their children are falling sick and are almost dying of hunger due to the ongoing recession ravaging Nigeria. They submitted that it is only the man of God who could understand their plight because he had been very charitable to them, irrespective of their tribe and religion. After the service, the sum of N700,000 was given to the delegation to support them.

The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua delivered a message – LET GOD RELEASE YOU – to viewers all over the world. It centred on relationships and the need to allow God to direct our actions. He urged viewers not to end relationships because of disagreements or fights, adding that such scenarios create tension and stifle the spirit of forgiveness: “We don’t leave relationships as a Christian because of fights or disagreements. The origin of relationships is God. The man who is your enemy today can be your saviour tomorrow.”

Prophet T.B. Joshua

According to the man of God, it is wrong for Christians to carry their offences into new relationships after they have ended previous ones. He reckoned that the same way we quit our previous relationships is the same way we will quit the new ones if we hold onto offences: “Whether you are wrong or right, you have no right to go with that conflict and establish another relationship.”  Prophet T.B. Joshua reminded the congregation and viewers all over the world that no one succeeds alone, hence the need to put away offence and forgive and forget in order to move ahead into a brighter tomorrow. He added that Jesus knew that principle; that was why He had disciples: “You cannot succeed alone; you need people. Jesus knew this; that was why He had disciples.” He also lamented the sad fact that many have lost their opportunity for divine visitation by taking offence and pulling out of the place God had destined for them to succeed. He therefore urged them to realise that the devil will always throw offence their way whenever they are in the right place where God wants them to be: “If you are in a place where God wants you to be, the devil will want to offend you to pull out.”

Concluding, Prophet T.B. Joshua advised Christians all over the world to wait for God in all circumstances rather than take rash decisions instigated by their human faculties: “No matter the crisis, don’t quit; wait patiently for God’s release.”

TESTIMONIES

BREAST CANCER BANISHED BY THE SPIRIT OF GOD

Diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age, Miss Uzoamaka kept her faith alive by drawing inspiration from the messages of Prophet T.B. Joshua she began to watch on Emmanuel TV. She moved from one hospital to the other but the more the medication and treatment she received, the worse her condition seemed to be. In spite of the huge funds spent in search of a medical solution, there was no sign that the ailment could be cured. The mere thought that cancer is medically incurable was another burden she had to contend with. There were many agonising nights when her distraught mother would weep over the unfortunate lot that had befallen her daughter.

In January 2016, Uzoamaka visited The SCOAN and received prayers from Prophet T.B. Joshua in the Prayer Line. She had been watching Emmanuel TV prior to that visit and had faith to receive her healing from God. After receiving prayers and deliverance from the man of God, Uzoamaka slept peacefully for the first time in many months. In a matter of days, her cancerous breast healed and the blood and puss that usually oozed from the cancerous wound dried up.

When she returned to the hospital where the diagnosis had been made, nothing was found to be wrong with her any longer. Even the doctors expressed surprise about her healing. Miss Uzoamaka’s story is one of the many examples of God’s illimitable powers to do the impossible. Thanking God in company of her mother, she said, “My advice to you viewers is to hold on to God and believe His Prophet and it shall be well with you.”

DEPRESSION LOSES ITS EVIL GRIP IN JESUS’ NAME

A Ugandan living in the UK with her family, Edna Mayindo suddenly started to have issues with her eyesight from an early age. Her vision became inexplicably blurred – a situation that warranted the attention of doctors. After careful examination, it was discovered that she needed to wear glasses. She became disturbed and could not perform as excellently as she used to do in school. Her mates bullied her a lot and that added to the psychological burden she carried. She began to feel that she did not belong to this world.

In her mind, every other person was better than her. Because of the seeming rejection she experienced amongst her peers, she had no one with whom she could share her problems. She resorted to self-pity accompanied by bouts of crying and absolute resignation to a hostile fate. As an escapist measure from all her worries, she harboured suicidal thoughts and expressed them by cutting her wrist with a blade. She had also taken a drug overdose and ended up unconscious. Worse still, she once stated that she was going to commit suicide by jumping in front of a moving train. Edna had nightmares in which unseen forces urged her to jettison the things of God and follow the ways of the world. Though she knew and liked the things of God, she could not explain why it was difficult serving Him in Spirit and in truth. She became addicted to the internet and alcohol and spent her money buying things she never really wanted – all in search of happiness.
