PROPHET TB JOSHUA

PROPHET TB JOSHUA

The SCOAN Live Sunday Service of March 6, 2016 witnessed the power of God at work. The prophecies, healings and testimonies that followed showed that we can always receive answers and solutions to our questions and challenges, respectively, when we put a demand on the anointing of God. The choir’s ministration coupled with the brief but profound sermon of Prophet T.B. Joshua gave the congregants much to meditate upon. The highpoint of the sermon centred on our relationship with God: To know that God hears us when we pray is much greater than healing, blessing, deliverance and breakthrough. If you can hear from God, you will know when to pray and what to ask for. When we pray according to God’s will, He answers us.”

Concluding, the man of God left the congregants with the following eye-opener: “If you are destined for Heaven and Heaven is your home, God has a way of stopping you so that you can inherit the Kingdom. He can use anything to stop you. Your sickness as a Christian is not like others – it is not to destroy you but to improve you.”

TESTIMONIES

CHRONIC STAGNATION GIVES WAY TO GLORIOUS PROMOTION

Mrs Comfort Akama Shidem was not a happy woman for twelve years. Her dream of climbing up the corporate ladder in her career was threatened by the sad reality of stagnation. She had remained a Chief Nursing Officer for quite a long while and was in dire need of promotion but it was not forthcoming. Approaching her organisation’s management for clarification on her long-sought promotion, she was told she needed to upgrade her qualification by returning to school.

MRS COMFORT AKAMA SHIDEM

The Benue State-born woman gladly enrolled into the University of Calabar, Nigeria. In spite of her age, pressures from home and the strangulating strictures of non-payment of salary, she was able to fulfil the academic requirements with the help of the Morning Water (which she ministered with devotion) and was awarded a degree. Thinking her new certificate would unlock the closed doors of her promotion, it was a rude shock that awaited her. She was told that her new qualification was no longer relevant and was once again advised to go back to school.

In anguish but with a strong faith in God, she decided to visit the Arena of Liberty, knowing that her case was a very small one compared to the impossible cases handled here. Her visit to The SCOAN would become one of the most significant events in her life. Receiving the Morning Water, she ministered it periodically as one who was administering doses of medication. After a while, she reapplied for her promotion. It was at this point that her life was overtaken by the Shekinah glory of God. The same man who had turned down her application for promotion, surprisingly granted it. She was thereafter promoted to the position of Deputy Director. While she was still pondering on the awesomeness of God, she was appointed Head of Department and was posted to a Local Government Area in her State. These were her words of advice to people all over the world, as she testified before The SCOAN congregation, “Believe in God and His prophets and it shall be well with you.”

 

 

MIXED BLESSINGS FOR MR NJIKTA AND DAUGHTER

For Mr Zacharias Njikta, life was not as smooth as he had wanted it to be. He spent his youthful days hoping to study abroad without success. Now, at 65 years, the retired Principal from Cameroon recounts his unlikely ‘promotion’ by God at His own time.

As an Emmanuel TV Partner, he was always ministering the Morning Water in prayer. One fateful day, he decided to apply for an American visa in order to visit his children who were living there. Ministering the Morning Water before stepping out for his appointment, he was surprised at the ease at which he passed the visa interview at the embassy and he received his visa in no time. However, landing in the US, he was greeted with a not too palatable situation. One of his sons who had spent some time over there had no work permit and was virtually living in hiding. Mr Njikta encouraged his son to apply for a work permit. As the young man applied online, his father anointed the screen of the computer with his Morning Water and within a month, the young man received his work permit. After a while, the young man procured two cars – one for himself and the other for his father.

Inspired by the breakthrough of his son, Mr Njikta applied for admission into a university in the US and his application was granted. He is now a student of Walden University on scholarship. He is studying Teacher Leadership and intends to establish a school to train young students. According to him, people should not put a time limit to their ambitions because God’s time is the best. He challenged them to aspire, irrespective of age. He also urged people all over the world to read the Word of God and live by it. Miss Lynda Favour Njikta, his daughter, also testified to her deliverance through the Morning Water, from the spirits of career dissatisfaction, frustration and alcoholism. She glorified God for her new-found freedom and for discovering her purpose as a designer after many lukewarm experiments with the wrong jobs.

GOOD RIDDANCE TO VISA PALAVER

Mrs Juanita Macarby, a Ghanaian national, had been trying to join her husband in the US for several years without luck. The visa process which should ordinarily take six months was spanning into years. After many failed attempts, her husband advised her to visit the Arena of Liberty to “receive a touch and the Morning Water”. True to her husband’s belief, Mrs Macarby received prayers, ministered the Morning Water and returned to Ghana where things took a new turn for the better.

On the day of her visa interview, she ministered the Morning Water and headed straight to the US Consulate. The Consular was very nice and receptive to the extent that Mrs Macarby felt that she was chatting with a friend. At the end of the whole process, Mrs Juanita Macarby was told to come for her visa in two weeks but surprisingly, she was called just after two days to come and pick up her permanent resident visa to the US. Mrs Macarby is departing Nigeria for the US on Thursday, March 10, 2016 to join her husband. She advised people to rejoice in every unpleasant situation as God is still saying something.

DECADES OF BARRENNESS COME TO AN END

Mr and Mrs Gabriel Ebagun had been searching for fruit of the womb for close to six years and all medical technologies such as IVF could not help them.  This was not the first struggle for Mr Ebagun who had previously separated from his first wife after twenty one years of childlessness.

MR & MRS GARBRIEL EGAGUN

MR & MRS GABRIEL EBAGUN

His second wife was mocked by many people who labelled her husband a serial failure in terms of fathering children. It was at the peak of all those embarrassing developments that the couple visited The SCOAN where they received prayer at the Prayer Line.

After prayer and deliverance, the couple left and continued to minister the Morning Water they were given by Prophet T.B. Joshua. To their great joy, shortly thereafter, Mrs Ebagun conceived and today, she is the proud mother of twins – two bouncing baby boys named Solomon and Jesse. Thanking God for delivering him from a thirty year stigma, Mr Ebagun advised people to plan their way in the Lord and remain focused on Him.

FROM ZERO TO HERO THROUGH THE SCOAN SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAMME

Mr Akpo Victor Adikpe was on the verge of dropping out of school as lack of finances almost crippled his illustrious ambition to get a good education. It was a tough battle before he could even pass his WAEC and JAMB exams. He had to wait for ten years after graduating from secondary school to be able to pass those exams but not without the spiritual help and prayers he had received at The SCOAN in 2007.

The big and influential men whom he had run to for help turned him down, making him feel more miserable. After all disappointments, friends who felt for him advised him to approach The SCOAN which has maintained a reputation for helping the needy achieve their God-given destinies. Mr Adikpe did not waste time in contacting the ministry. Narrating his challenges to the man of God, he was treated with so much dignity – a rare occurrence in a world where people look down on the poor and needy. Even though he was not a member of the church, the man of God, T.B. Joshua took up the responsibility of his education through The SCOAN scholarship programme.

Today, Mr Akpo Victor Adikpe is a qualified legal practitioner, having successfully graduated from the Law Department of the University of Jos, Nigeria and the Nigerian Law School. All glory and honour be unto God. A young man who facing lack, frustration and rejection is now an important member of the Nigerian society. Thanking God for transforming him from zero to hero, he advised people out there to keep on watching Emmanuel TV.

RESCUED FROM THE TRAP OF LACK AND STAGNATION

For two years, Chief Peter Mackwin was in a big financial mess. His business collapsed while his immediate family struggled to survive. As the breadwinner, he could no longer manage to provide his family’s needs to the extent that his children stopped going to school. Help was not forthcoming from any angle. After waiting in vain for any form of human respite, he decided to visit The SCOAN.

CHIEF PETER MACKWIN

CHIEF PETER MACKWIN

Receiving the Morning Water, the indigene of Plateau, Nigeria returned home and started ministering it on himself and all his business documents. After a short while, the glorious changes that flooded his life are better experienced than described in writing. His business took an upward leap as contracts began to flow in from different angles. Money is no longer an issue in his life as his family has started enjoying the best. A man who could not pay his children’s school fees is now sponsoring seven other people (not members of his family) in the university.

He has been blessed with a building and two exotic cars. He has also constructed a twenty one-chalet hostel for his state university as well as a motorised borehole for his local community. He thanked God for the turn-around and advised people with the following words: “God is the Master of everything and He will provide for you at your point of need.”

PERENNIAL BLEEDING BOWS TO THE ANOINTING OF GOD
During penultimate Sunday service, the man of God, while ministering to the congregation, prophesied about a woman who was having the issue of blood. His words were as follows: “There is a woman, you put on a pad – it is not your period. You have been like that for some time now. Sometimes, when you don’t have money, you use a rag just to stop whatever is coming out of your body. It’s no longer just blood; your system is damaged. Please, come out; Jesus loves you. You know Jesus can stop it. Remember the woman with the issue of blood. Come out and enjoy the grace”. Coming out of the congregation, the woman confirmed the prophecy to be true about her life. The man of God delivered her immediately, declaring an end to her problem through Christ Jesus.

MRS LIANNA DAUGLAS & FAMILY

MRS LIANNA DOUGLAS & FAMILY

Testifying in company of her mother and two sisters, Miss Lianna Douglas, all the way from Trinidad and Tobago, recounted how she had suffered so much embarrassment as a result of the bleeding she was experiencing. According to her, as soon as she heard the prophecy, she was frozen with surprise. She explained that when the man of God stretched his hand towards her, she felt the power of God on her womb and could not help but fall to the ground. The bleeding ceased immediately she fell to the ground.

In an emotion-laden thanksgiving, Lianna’s mother said they placed a demand on the anointing of God in the man of God and were able to get the healing their daughter needed. “No more bleeding – it has stopped by the hand of God,” said Lianna’s mother as she continued to express her gratitude to God. On her own part, Lianna, overwhelmed with joy sang a song of praise to the Most High for healing her.

Brethren, as we submit our lives to the will of God, He will uphold us in His glory and set us high on the hill where His light in us cannot be hidden; then, we shall be called THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD.

We want to thank our viewers and partners for their love and care all the way long
as they have supported Emmanuel TV to become the channel of change – changing lives,
changing nations and changing the world! We love you so much!

HAPPY 10th BIRTHDAY TO EMMANUEL TV!

EMMANUEL!

 

 

 

 

 

On Sunday 28th February, 2016, the SCOAN Choir ensured that the congregants danced away all their fears and burdens, replacing them with the hope and faith that abound in the Word of God. That is always the case when the Spirit of the Lord is upon the souls of his children – they will dance a living dance!

T.B. JOSHUA

Prophet T.B. Joshua sent the congregation pondering with a deep message titled, BELIEF IN THE HEART. The bottom-line of the message laid in the fact that God cherishes anything done from the heart. In his message, the man of God emphasised that “Faith is not imitation.” He observed that many Christians have been doing foolish things and calling it faith: “God will not meet you because you imitate what someone did. Faith is not imitation. God will meet you when you take action in obedience to God. When our spirit acts upon the Word, all we need to do is use our faith to put a demand upon the anointing.”

Speaking further, the man of God taught the congregation how to connect with God through the study of His Word, stating that mere recital of the scripture is not what is needed to connect with God but a heart-felt and slow approach, attentively and repeatedly: “The more you think, meditate about what you read in the Bible, the more your spirit, that is your heart acts upon the Word you read.”

Concluding, the man of God urged Christians to avoid taking offence as it blocks their connection to God and His everlasting blessings: “Only a free spirit can communicate with God, hear from God. Whether you are right or wrong, you have to release yourself and put it behind you and move forward. You have no right or permission to hold onto an offence. Holding onto an offence affects the glory of God in your life.”

 

TESTIMONIES

AGE-LONG SPIRIT OF BEDWETTING EXPELLED; FRENCH CITIZENSHIP GRANTED

MRS MUKAMBONERA CLAUDINEMrs Mukambonera Claudine, a Rwandan national residing in France visited The SCOAN with a couple of challenges. She had been applying for citizenship in France but all her efforts hit the brick wall. Her bedwetting problem was perhaps the biggest and most embarrassing challenge that had troubled her right from birth. During her school days, her fellow students would run away from her saying that she had an offensive odour. While in the boarding house, no student wanted to share the same bed with her.  Sometimes, while she slept on the upper bunk, her urine would trickle down on the body of the student who slept on the lower bunk. She was left alone in her world and was made to feel very bad about herself. She was always washing and cleaning the hostel in order to minimize the stench of urine that came from her. Those were really challenging moments in her life. Her marital aspirations were also troubled by her bedwetting problem. On one occasion, a suitor was discouraged by someone who informed him that she was bedwetting. Though she eventually married her suitor, the bedwetting problem continued into her marriage. To save her head, she would ensure that she slept together with her children and would ascribe her bedwetting to them. Even when she shared a bed with a friend in France, it was the same sad story. Sometimes, she would be on the street crying and bemoaning her unfortunate lot in life.

When she came to The SCOAN, she was placed at the Prayer Line where the man of God prayed for her and subsequently gave her the Morning Water. On her return to France, she ministered the Morning Water devotedly with prayers. To the glory of God, she was granted French citizenship. The bedwetting problem also came to a permanent end. Joy and self-esteem which were seriously lacking in her life have now returned. She praised God for answering her prayers.

A PROPHETIC MESSAGE SETTLES THE MATTER

Ambassador and Mrs Raphael Horsfall came to The SCOAN with the problem of recurrent miscarriage. Since they got married, Mrs Horsfall had been experiencing recurrent miscarriages. Whenever the pregnancy was six weeks old, she would have a nightmare in which she would find herself eating in the dream. The aftermath of that nightmare was that she would start bleeding, thereby losing the pregnancy.AMBASSADOR & MRS RAPHAEL HORSEFALL

Medical appointments with the best gynaecologists could not help just as all diagnosis failed to detect any problem. Her husband is an Ambassador of Peace and Conflict Management with the Presidency in Abuja and who, in company of other Niger Delta dignitaries, had visited The SCOAN in 2009 in search of a spiritual solution to the problem of militancy. According to Ambassador Horsfall, the spiritual guidance and direction given to them by the man of God resulted in the creation of the Amnesty programme by the late President Umaru Musa Yar’adua.

Ambassador Horsfall believed that if the man of God could solve a national problem that almost crippled the national economy, then his wife’s case was miniature. His candid conviction would eventually prove true indeed. The couple visited The SCOAN and received prayers as well as the Morning Water. As they returned to Abuja and continued to minister the Morning Water, the hand of God upon their case was made manifest. One afternoon, as he was about to have his lunch, Ambassador Horsfall received a cheery news from his wife. She was pregnant and this time, the pregnancy has come to stay. Today, Mrs Horsfall is eight months pregnant. Grateful to God for the miracle, Ambassador Horsfall urged leaders to seek the face of God in everything they do.

To end his testimony, Ambassador Horsfall explained his recent post as Senior Special Assistant to the Political Advisor of the former President of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan. During a time of tension in the in the run-up to the election, there was confusion and worry as to which direction to follow in the government. They had sought advice from different places. Ambassador Horsfall came to The SCOAN and pleaded with Prophet T.B. Joshua for God’s opinion and the man of God clearly stated that the election had been lost and they should concede defeat graciously.

He took the instruction in righteousness back to the Aso Villa and told the president. A few months later, people wondered why the president didn’t fight back or annul the election as he had the powers to do so. This was the reason why.

DELIVERED FROM INDEBTEDNESS AND BLESSED WITH A HOUSE

For Mrs Rebecca Odoi Laryea, it was the problem of indebtedness that brought her to The SCOAN after she and her husband were duped by a trusted family friend who absconded with the sum of eighty thousand dollars paid in by a customer for the purchase of a coaster bus. All efforts to retrieve the money remained futile. The automobile business of the Ghanaian couple ran into murky waters as all their savings went down the drain in their bid to locate the duper. After exhausting all options, the couple visited The SCOAN.

MRS REBECCA ODOI LARYEA

At The SCOAN, they received the Morning Water and returned to Ghana with faith. Ministering the Morning Water, they called on God to save them from the mess they had found themselves in. Within a short time, the man who had absconded with their money called her husband from Dubai, paid her husband’s air fare to the Middle East city, refunded the money for the bus with an extra six thousand dollars on top to enable them purchase the latest brand of coaster. The couple eventually bought and shipped a brand new coaster bus for their business at the expense of the lost-but-found friend.

Apart from recovering their money, the couple who had faced accommodation problems, were able to build an apartment of their own in a prime location in Accra within seven months. Thanking God for taking away shame and reproach from their lives, Mrs Odoi Laryea advised people to look up to God when their human strength fails them.

ELUSIVE VISA GRANTED AT LAST

“There is a brother; you are going to the embassy on Thursday. You have the document. You have been there two to three times but whatever happens, don’t be disappointed…” It was with these words that Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied the case of Mr Hilary Ugochukwu Anyamene. The native of Anambra State, Nigeria was facing challenges with his visa application. As a business man who specialised in marketing American spares, he needed to get his visa in order to go over to the US to ship products to Nigeria. On two occasions, his visa applications were rejected. He made up his mind to apply for a third time and also insisted on MR UGOCHUKWYU ANYAMENEvisiting The SCOAN before embarking on the third journey to the US embassy. Even though friends had tried to discourage him from visiting The SCOAN, his mind was made up. For them, it was better that he should wait and reapply after one year.

Visiting The SCOAN, he received a prophetic message from Prophet T.B. Joshua regarding his visa issue. That message turned around his situation for good. He returned home and prepared for another date with the American embassy. On getting there, the lady who interviewed him only asked a few questions after which she told him that his visa application was successful. Filled with joy and displaying his two-year multiple entry visa, Mr Anyamene thanked God for granting his heart’s desire.

SPIRIT OF PROSTITUTION ARRESTED AND EXECUTED

“I don’t want her to have any good in her life… just to destroy her life to make her miserable… her family – everyone is miserable…” Amidst heavy pummelling by the undiluted power of the Holy Ghost, the evil spirit in the young woman cried out revealing all the wicked plans it had for her life. Even the physical appearance of Miss Biliki showed that something was amiss with her spiritual life. A ring in the nose, another beneath the lips plus a plethora of tattoos all over the body – all those were relics of her association with the marine kingdom.

Even her mother knew that she had an evil spirit which had caused so much havoc in her life. At 15, she absconded from home only to team up with a prostitution cartel in Lagos Island. A woman who traded in prostitutes promised to take her out of the country to Cotonou where she became a professional prostitute. While nine other girls were sold away, she was kept because of herMISS BILIKI GIWA & MOTHER BLURREDage. As she plied her trade in the illicit business, she ran into a man who took her away to a new location. After two weeks, the man left.

 

Young Biliki started working in night clubs to make ends meet. In her long romance with prostitution, she had travelled to a couple of countries, including Niger where she met a witch doctor who promised to exorcise the evil spirit tormenting her life. After spending money for the spiritual exercise, her life became worse. She returned to Cameroon and became a stripper, dancing in strip clubs and exposing her nakedness to the evil delight of irresponsible men. Most of the so-called witch doctors who claimed they would help deliver her from the evil spirit tormenting her life ended up sleeping with her.

She had come to The SCOAN to test the power of God in Prophet T.B. Joshua. That was the greatest but best mistake she made. During Mass Prayer, the fire of the Holy Ghost located her and beat the evil spirit blue-black before sending it back to the pit of hell. Renouncing her former life amid tears, Miss Biliki advised people to put their trust in God while promising to dedicate the rest of her life to serving Him.

 

 

DADDY

T.B Joshua

Prophet T.B. Joshua revealed the secret behind the application of faith in the life of a true Christian with his message titled CHRISTIANITY LIES IN THE HEART during the Sunday service of February 21, 2016. While the choir complemented his teaching with songs of worship, the atmosphere in the auditorium took a remarkable dimension with prophesies, testimonies and deliverance which all attested to the fact that with faith, God’s power is always within reach. According to the man of God, “Faith is a Heavenly currency. Faith is natural. We need to know the faithfulness and trustworthiness of God. If you pay attention to God’s Word, you will find that faith comes spontaneously, that is naturally.” In other words, there is no way a Christian can claim to have faith without feeding his mind on the Word of God. The more he or she feeds their mind with God’s Word, faith comes naturally.

The man of God explained that whatever we do that is not from our heart will not be rewarded by God because it amounts to pretentious living. “Faith is of man’s heart and without faith, you cannot please God. God is our Rewarder, Whatever you do that is not from your heart, God is not the Rewarder.”

Concluding, the man of God led the congregation in a prayer to denounce and renounce every form of pretentious life that they have lived with a pledge to rededicate their hearts to God Whom we cannot please without faith.

TESTIMONIES

AGE-LONG SPIRIT OF BEDWETTING SENT PACKING

MISS ONYINYE ANYANWU

Miss Onyinye Anyanwu, a beautiful native of Imo State and a fresh graduate from the North American University, Benin Republic, was seriously embarrassed by the spirit of bedwetting right from her childhood days. It was a very terrible experience for her from secondary school through her university days. Once she closed her eyes to sleep, she would wet the bed; it was something she could not control. For thirty three years, the embarrassment lingered.

She had lost many would-be husbands as a result of her bedwetting problem. Some of the men that came her way opted out of the relationship as they could not understand the reason a beautiful grown-up woman would wet the bed. All efforts by her late mother to seek solution yielded no results. Troubled to the extreme, Miss Anyanwu decided to visit The SCOAN in anticipation of divine intervention. The Spirit of God located her in the midst of the crowd and Prophet T.B. Joshua gave her a prophetic word saying, “There is a woman here, you bedwet uncontrollably”. Amazed at this accurate prophecy exposing her secret problem, she came out to confirm the words of the prophet.

Receiving her deliverance in the name of Jesus, Miss Anyanwu rolled on the floor as the spirit of bedwetting was being cast out of her. After her deliverance, she dreamt of a strange woman advancing towards her but for the first time, she was able to overcome her. Smiling with joy, she said that she has not wet the bed since! Thanking God for her deliverance, Miss Anyanwu urged people all over the world to always look unto God and depend on Him for everything.

MORNING WATER-INSPIRED CAREER BREAKTHROUGH

MR KOFI ENOCH AWAYIWU

Mr Kofi Enoch Awayiwu from Ghana was a security guard who started his career in 1999. Life was very tough for him then, as he would struggle to take care of his family. Along the way, a woman introduced him to Emmanuel TV and also gave him the Morning Water which he started ministering to himself in faith. After a while, he was promoted to the position of Security Supervisor. As he continued ministering the Morning Water, another opportunity came from a different company which offered him the position of Operations and Marketing Manager. Mr Awayiwu resigned his position as Security Supervisor and took up the new offer which came with a better remuneration.

His faith God increased as he continued to pray along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV. Through ministration of the Morning Water, he was inspired to apply for the establishment of his own security company. Though he did not have a licence from the Ministry of Interior as at the time, he got a contract offer from a big international franchise. He quickly applied for the licence, ministering the Morning Water while he waited against all suggestions by ministry staff that he would not get his license the same day he applied. His faith eventually paid off when the Minister of Interior walked in and signed his licence, enabling him to establish his private security company. Today, he owns his own company and is also an employer. While thanking God for uplifting him through The SCOAN, he advised the congregation to always watch Emmanuel TV and pray with the man God.

A CAR GIFT FROM HEAVEN

MR ABIOLA OGUNADE

Life took a dramatic turn for Mr Abiola Ogunade, a humble electrician from Nigeria when he came into contact with the Morning Water and Sticker from the ministry of T.B. Joshua. Each day was a constant struggle as he had to carry his heavy bag of tools on his back and enter public transport, in the busy streets of Lagos, looking for work. As an electrician who moved from place to place fixing electrical problems for his clients, he really needed to upgrade his mobility. He used to look at people with their own vehicles and imagine what it would be like to one day be a car owner. Something that was a far-away dream became a reality when he came to The SCOAN and received the Morning Water and Sticker. He ministered the Morning Water in Jesus’ name and prayed with the car sticker in faith that people would see the glory of God in his life. God answered his prayer sooner than he expected as the next morning, a relative in the USA sent him a photo of a new car and said, “Do you like it? It’s yours!” Truly, a month later, the car arrived in Nigeria and today Mr Abiola Ogunade stands before the congregation proudly displaying the keys and ownership documents of his very own vehicle. He also advised the youth to focus on God and have faith in Him, in order to receive His blessings.

 RED CARD FOR CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS

Mr Cletus Eze from Enugu, Nigeria suffered from a stiff neck and near paralysis after he had an accident which affected his spine several years ago.  He was afterwards diagnosed with cervical spondylosis and was almost reduced to a liability. His trip to India to undergo surgery did not help matters. Instead, things got worse. After realising that there was no other way he could get help medically, he decided to visit The SCOAN. It was a divine appointment for him as God made it possible for him to receive prayer from the man of God.

MR CLETUS EZE (1)

God performed a spiritual operation on him and set him free from a condition that had rendered him almost useless for a year and six months. Describing the manner in which he got his healing, he said, “When the man of God prayed for me, I felt a sensation and realised that I could move my neck freely.” All the burdens and discomfort, including the neck collar are gone for good. Displaying much agility, Mr Eze urged people to have faith in God, no matter the situation they find themselves in.

 

 

 

MARITAL BLISS AND AFFECTION RESTORED

MR & MRS LOENARD DAVID BASHUMIKA

Mr and Mrs Leonard Bashumika from Tanzania have been legally married for twelve years yet there was lack of affection in the marriage to the extent that they separated for five years as they could not find an amicable way to settle the scores between them. As a beautiful woman, Mrs David Bashumika told of how during the period of separation, she was practically confined to the house because anywhere she went, she was accused of wanting to take other people’s husbands. The problems led Mrs Bashumika to The SCOAN where she received the Morning Water and returned to her native Tanzania praying to God to restore her marriage. After a while, the couple re-united for a while only to start the inexplicable fight all over again. But Mr Bashumika knew that there was more to their problems than met their physical eyes. He became even more convinced when his wife called from China to tell him that she dreamt of a big snake always lying beside her whenever she wanted to sleep.

That dream coupled with other strange experiences forced husband and wife to visit The SCOAN. During a Sunday service, the man of God gave a prophetic message about their problem and called them out. As Mrs Bashumika came out from the congregation towards the man of God, she suddenly took to her heels, running away from the Prophet. After her deliverance, she confessed that she ran from the man of God because she saw him driving a very big truck towards her – a confirmation of the bulldozing nature of the anointing of God in Prophet T.B. Joshua. Today, the couple are enjoying their marriage and have rekindled the fire of love that joined them together as husband and wife.

BRETHREN, THERE IS NO LIMIT TO WHAT WE AS CHRISTIANS CAN ACHIEVE WHEN WE BELIEVE GOD WITH ALL OUR HEART. A PRETENTIOUS LIFE HAS ROBBED US OF REAPING THE FRUIT OF WHERE GOD WANTS US TO BE. WHERE GOD WANTS US TO BE IS WHERE OUR HEART IS.

EMMANUEL!

PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA

TB Joshua

In furtherance of his teaching on the need to guard against offence, Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke about THE CHALLENGES FACING RELATIONSHIPS on Sunday, February 14, 2016. He gave a message which dealt with issues faced by countless people worldwide. According to the man of God, the way we handle relationships often leads to offence but we must be careful not to hold onto such offences to the detriment of our own relationship with God. The more we hold onto grudges and offences, the more we imprison ourselves. “We cannot function properly because we are holding someone hostage of unforgiveness. We carry anger, hatred, bitterness, hurt against someone – that is self-imprisonment. Many of us are victims of self-imprisonment.”

With special reference to Romans 12:19-21 which admonishes Christians against anger, vengeance and hatred, the man of God encouraged the congregation not to allow the wrongdoings of others to cut us away from the path God has destined for us. He reckoned that Christians must not allow the hurts and wounds of life to stand between them and God: “Because of wounds and hurts which offences have caused in our lives, most of us cannot function properly in our professions. Each time you carry out the assignment, you remember someone you have trained who has become your boss. You will not want to give your best – and your best is needed.”
Leading by example, the man of God led the congregation in prayer, urging them to let go of the past and free all those who they have held hostage in their minds. He said, “Rise up and let us pray. Right now, begin to release yourself by forgiving those who have wronged you and promise after you leave here, that you will do restitution, in Jesus’ name.”
It was indeed an atmosphere of repentance and restitution as the choir on their part gave the congregation a great musical exhortation on the urgent need to free themselves from grudges, strife and offence.

TESTIMONIES

MIRACLE VISAS FOR THE OKAFORS
Mr and Mrs Uchenna Okafor had been nursing the ambition to travel abroad for a holiday. The funds were not a problem but the destination appeared to be a puzzle to the couple. They had planned to visit Dubai in the United Arab Emirates but eventually changed their minds and settled for the United States of America. Putting all modalities in place, they had to face the uphill task of attending the visa interview at the American embassy in Lagos, Nigeria. Two days to their appointment at the embassy, Mr Okafor visited The SCOAN and was able to see Prophet T.B. Joshua.MR & MRS UCHENNA OKAFOR

Having told the man of God his intention to travel, he also requested for prayers. The man of God only asked him four questions after which he handed the young man a Believer’s Card, declaring that all was well. The young man left with his hopes ignited to high heavens. When the visa interview date came, Mr Okafor and his wife arrived at the embassy only to meet a mammoth crowd scrambling for positions in the long queue. As they strove to find their place in the long queue, a man came and took them to the front where it was easy for them to be attended to.

As the interview commenced, the couple were shocked to witness the rejection of two applicants who were before them on the queue, even though they had rich histories of foreign travels. They were almost thrown into the defeatist thinking that their applications may not sail through since those of more qualified applicants had failed. But that was never to be. When it got to their turn, something unusual happened! The same four questions the man of God had asked Mr Okafor days back were the ones asked by the visa officer. The most striking thing was that the questions came in the same order on both occasions.
As Mr Okafor was trying to fathom the striking semblance of the questions and the order in which they were asked, the next response from the visa officer sent his heart rolling with irrepressible joy. “Congratulations, Mr and Mrs Okafor, your visa requests are granted. Come back next Thursday and pick up your visas”. They had applied for two-week holiday visas but were shocked beyond words to receive two-year multiple entry visas each as they returned to the embassy for collection.

CEASED MENSTRUATION RESTORED
MISS PETRONELLA MAJIGEMiss Petronella Majige, a Tanzanian living in Australia, was confused and worried. Her menstrual flow suddenly and inexplicably stopped for more than one year. All efforts to get clarifications from doctors on the reason for her condition remained futile; even her father who was a professor of medicine could not offer any justifiable explanations. Visiting The SCOAN, she was among those who received the Believer’s Card from the man of God in January 2016. Immediately she received the Believer’s Card, Petronella felt a sharp pain within her abdomen. God was at work!

To the glory of God, ever since the day she received the Believer’s Card, her ceased menstrual flow was miraculously restored! Thanking God for her healing, Miss Majige confessed that she had actually come down to The SCOAN for other problems but never knew that God was going to restore her menstruation. She advised people all over the world to be patient with Jesus Christ as He does things in His own time beyond human comprehension.

THREE DECADES OF STAGNATION COME TO A GLORIOUS END
For thirty-one years, Mrs Adegbite Modupe served as a class teacher in a local primary school without promotion. She barely managed to cope with the cumbersome demands of teaching as she had to write loads and loads of lesson notes which sometimes interfered, especially with her private life. She would often be invited to occasions but would not be able to attend because she would have to complete her lesson notes before going out of the house. The struggle continued until January, 2016 when she visited The SCOAN.MRS ADEGBITE MODUPE

Mrs Adegbite Modupe was one of those very fortunate people who received the Believer’s Card from the man of God as he made his inaugural appearance for the New Year. After receiving the Believer’s Card, she went home and resorted to serious prayers. In a matter of three days, God answered her prayers. Engrossed in her duties as class teacher, a call came through informing her of her promotion to the rank of Assistant Head Teacher, a position she had earlier prayed for. Presently enjoying the benefit and privacy of a new office, Mrs Adegbite Modupe is thankful to God for elevating her after three decades of stagnation. She advised people to heed the counsels of God’s prophets with an utmost sense of urgency.

SPINAL SCOLIOSIS BATTLED TO A STANDSTILL
In 2012, Mr Godfrey Kyei suffered from a strange back pain that led to four different surgeries. It was later discovered that the Ghanaian suffered from spinal scoliosis and needed another corrective surgery. Condemned to the use of a walking aid and unable to function as a complete man, Mr Kyei was scared. About that time, he was already watching Emmanuel TV and was conversant with the marvellous works of God at The SCOAN. Rather than allow himself go under the physician’s knives again, he opted to visit The SCOAN because he was very sure and confident that his case was a minor one compared to cases being handled by God in the Arena of Liberty.

Arriving at The SCOAN and placed at the Prayer Line, Godfrey received an anointed touch MR KYEI GODFRED (3)from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. As soon as the man of God touched him, he felt a sharp sensation from the back of his head down through his spine and that was the end of his agonies. He testified that from that moment, all those pains were gone for good! Demonstrating before the congregation to prove his fitness and new-found freedom from pains, Mr Kyei urged believers to always run to Jesus whenever they face challenges. He happily brandished his medical reports showing his condition before and after the prayer, adding that his miraculous recovery confounded the doctors in charge of his case who had booked him for surgery prior to his visit to The SCOAN.

INABILITY TO WALK REVERSED IN JESUS’ NAME

Mrs Ivonne Milla had a dream in which a strange voice told her that she would not be able to walk anymore. The next day, as she made her way to a training programme, she felt a sharp pain on her back which immediately immobilised her. She could not stand up, let alone walk. Her family was forced to rush her to the hospital where the medical doctor tried in vain to fathom the cause of her problem. She became a serious liability to her family to the extent that someone had to tell her that it was better she relocated to the village to die.

As she battled with the pains and the inability to walk, her mother encouraged her to visit The SCOAN. “But how can a woman who is unable to walk get herself to The SCOAN?” she had uttered to her mother in tears. As a proof of their concern and family love, Mrs Ivonne Milla was virtually carried like a baby by her family to The SCOAN and was placed inside a car at the entrance of the Prayer Line. As the man of God approached her, he handed the Morning Water to her brother and asked him to minister it on her.

MRS IVONNE MILA & FAMILYAs soon as the Morning Water touched her, the man of God commanded her to rise and walk. For the first time in a long while, the Cameroonian rose to her feet and walked to the glory of God. Testifying with members of her family, Mrs Milla thanked God for her healing, adding that she has been strong and healthy for the last twelve months.

 

A PRECARIOUS MARITAL ISSUE DIVINELY RESOLVED

After the inspiring teaching addressing the challenges facing relationships, Prophet T.B. Joshua practicalised his sermon by addressing the case of Dr & Mrs Abhiwu whose marriage was virtually on the verge of separation. A fortnight earlier, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied to Mrs Abhiwu that he was seeing separation, insisting that she was not actually living with her husband in Ghana. The young lady tearfully confirmed the prophecy, explaining that her husband Dr Hilarius Abhiwu had openly told her he had no affection for her and no longer considered himself a married man. The following Sunday, Dr Abhiwu clarified how his marital mess initially began. He explained that his mother-in-law was extremely controlling, to the point that for two years after their marriage, his wife was still living in her mother’s house.

MISS GLORIA ABIHUWU,HUSBAND & HUSBAND (2)

As he was extremely busy caring for patients as a sole medical superintendent in the region he lived, he was being forced to travel a long distance to meet his wife. “I am caring for lives but she is caring for bottles,” he fumed, explaining that his wife was a major employee of his mother-in-law’s soft drink distribution business. Before Dr Hilarius could continue, Prophet T.B. Joshua insisted that his wife, Gloria bring her mother to The SCOAN, emphasising that irrespective of the challenges, this was a marriage from God. This Sunday, the young couple was gloriously reconciled as Prophet T.B. Joshua addressed the issue. He explained that Gloria’s mum, who was present in the church, was simply being overly protective of her daughter, not knowing that this was causing turbulence to the young marriage. He advised her to avoid unnecessary interference in the marriage, adding that all of these challenges were meant to strengthen the relationship. Prophet T.B. Joshua then prayed for the couple who fell down together in a warm embrace as they received their deliverance to start married life afresh.

RELATIONSHIP BEGINS WITH GOD

In The SCOAN Sunday Service of February 7, 2016, after a time of anointed praise and worship, the congregants received food for their souls from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua.PTBJ (2) As he dwelt further on certain salient truths about the Christian race, he enlightened the congregation on the attitude required of the true Christian in order to maintain and sustain relationship with their Creator. According to Prophet T.B. Joshua, no Christian should consider themselves out of touch with the harsh reality of trials, attacks and challenges as this forms the basis for their elevation: “As a Christian, take note of this word of exhortation. Anything close to Jesus receives attack. If you are in the place where God wants you to be, the devil will do everything to dislodge you, displace you out of the relationship. It is a sign. When the devil knows you are in a place God wants you, that this is your destiny in your hands, he will fight you. By thinking that you are out of touch, you are giving the devil a chance. I pray you will see that attack you are going through as an object that separates impurities, as a refiner of character, a builder of character.”

TESTIMONY TIME

POLITICAL VICTORY MADE POSSIBLE AT THE POINT OF SURRENDER

Dr Archibong Henry, HON DR & MRS ARCHIBONG HENRYa medical doctor from Cross River, Nigeria, passed through hardship after his attempt in 2007 to contest a political office left him bankrupt and stranded at point zero. Visiting The SCOAN, Dr and Mrs Archibong received the Morning Water as well as the Good Morning Sticker and their faith and conviction spurred them to conclude that God would soon turn it around for them. One night, after praying with and ministering the Morning Water, Dr Archibong encountered Prophet T.B. Joshua in his dream, taking him to the front of a large crowd where he was given the flag of Nigeria. He woke up and concluded that he needed to re-contest for political office in the upcoming elections.

With no money in his pocket to run a campaign, he was surprised when well wishers raised money for him to get the nomination form. He then chose to send his campaign messages through social media, which did not cost him a dime. Barely a day to the election, he was asked by his party leaders to step down for another candidate who had the financial muscle to flex himself through the tasking processes of the election. He stepped down but was then suddenly invited to another meeting where he was informed that a mock election had been conducted and he had come out the winner. The party leaders therefore said he would be their nominee in the election, despite the fact that he did not have the necessary money to continue the process.

When the election proper was conducted, he won and the electoral tribunal confirmed his victory, naming him the representative of the Itu Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, National Assembly. The lawmaker advised people never to see distance as a barrier to blessings from God.

GENETIC TRANSFORMATION THROUGH THE MORNING WATER MEDIUM

Miss Chiazoka Chukwuma, from Enugu, Nigeria was born with sickle cell anaemia, a disease that had claimed the lives of eight of her siblings and truncated her secondary school education. She was also addicted to eating sand and charcoal. The pain she experienced was untold.MISS CHIAZOKA CHUKWUMA & SISTER After traversing several places in search of solution, Miss Chukwuma came across Emmanuel TV in her elder sister’s house. Witnessing that cases worse than hers were being tackled at The SCOAN, she decided to come for her healing. She visited and received the Morning Water which she ministered in prayer at home.

Miss Chiazoka was ecstatic to notice that the pain she had been experiencing all over her body was no more. Excited about the development, she told her elder sister and decided to return to the hospital for a medical re-examination. The tests confirmed that her genotype, which was previously SS, had miraculously turned AA. She is no longer a sickle cell patient! Thanking God in company of her elder sister, she advised people to believe in God’s ability to tackle their own situations just as He has done in her case.

A COLOSSAL BREAKTHROUGH

Mr Tonyekiri Biewari from Bayelsa, Nigeria, had dreamt of encountering Prophet T.B. Joshua in his dream. In that dream, the man of God gave him three cubes of sugar and told him, “Son, you are not meant to struggle in life. God has given you everything you need”. After that experience, the young man who was a contractor with an oil company and was expecting a big contract, made up his mind to visit The SCOAN where he received the Morning Water. Getting home, he gathered his family for prayers and ministered the Morning Water.MR TONYEKIRI BIEWARI & FAMILY Two days after returning to his base in Bayelsa, he was awarded the contract he had been running after for two years. Having been awarded the contract, Mr Biewari needed funds to execute it and called the prayer warriors at Emmanuel TV for prayer. Seven days later, he was granted a loan of sixty million naira without collateral.

Within six months, he had offset the loan facility he got from the bank and now has over seven oil barges which he rents outs to oil companies. He has also been able to complete five massive homes which had previously been abandoned for many years due to lack of funds. The number of exotic cars in his garage is unimaginable. He has also embraced the spirit of giving and has given out houses and cars to both individuals and churches. Displaying pictorial evidences of his God-inspired achievement since visiting The SCOAN, Mr Biewari, who was accompanied by members of his family, advised people never to give up on God, no matter the situation.

BRETHREN, THE ONLY WAY CHRISTIAN CHARACTER GROWS IS BY FACING AND DEALING WITH DIFFICULT SITUATIONS AND PROBLEMS.  BE OF GOOD CHEER – CHRIST HAS OVERCOME THE WORLD FOR US.

EMMANUEL!

 

 

 

THE HIDDEN TRUTH

DADDY

God’s presence was felt in every aspect of the Sunday service of January 31, 2016 at The SCOAN. As the choir gave congregants enough musical reasons to shake off the devil from every corner of their lives, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua reminded all Christians of the need to hold on to God in times of trouble. According to him, troubles have always had a significant role to play in the lives of all those who have a special place in God’s heart. In a message titled, THE HIDDEN TRUTH, the man of God observed: “When you are in trouble, that trouble should strengthen your desire and determination for God. Your situation cannot say you are not a Christian. God refines us with situations like that. The reaction of your situation on you separates impurities. Your situation separates impurities and allows the character of God to grow in your life. My situation cannot determine my Christian life. The Spirit of God needs a free spirit”.

Concluding, the man of God admonished congregants to avoid the erroneous impression that the Christian race is a bed of roses. According to him, the crown only comes after the trials that must be overcome: “A true Christian is tested by his ability to face situations. Trials and temptations are tests to promote you. Your faith life needs to be tested by foolish things. You can never live and be ‘out of touch’ until the end of your days. That touch is to separate impurities and allow the character of God in your life to grow”.

 AK 47 RENDERED HARMLESS

All the way from Edo State Nigeria, HRH Aidenojie Ehidiamen attended the first Sunday service of 2016 were he received the new Good Morning Sticker from the man of God. The royal father who is also an ardent user of the Morning Water has always made it a point of duty to minister anointing materials from The SCOAN, in the name of Jesus.  HRH Aidenojie Ehidiamen

After that eventful first Sunday service of the year, the traditional ruler in company of his driver and police escort had prayed and committed the journey back to Edo state into God’s hands. He ministered the Morning Water and asked for God’s protection on the road.

On their way back to Edo State, specifically around the Ijebu-Ode axis, their car had run into a gang of robbers on the road. Flouting the orders of the AK 47-carrying robbers who tried to flag them down, the driver manoeuvred his way out of the way of the robbers and drove the royal father out of the danger zone. But for the miraculous hand of God which played a major role in their safety, the robbers would have opened fire seeing that their plans did not work out. It also remains a mystery how the driver forgot to put on his headlamp which would have exposed the police officer to the robbers, thereby drawing the anger of the marauders of the highway who hate to behold any law enforcement agent whenever they are at work.

Thanking God for their miraculous protection, the royal father urged people all over the world to appreciate the anointing materials from The SCOAN. He also prayed to God to continue to increase the man of God in anointing as he keeps helping mankind and returning them to Christ.

HARDSHIP BOWS TO THE POWER OF THE ANOINTING

Mr Nzube Onyekaozulu

Mr Nzube Onyekaozulu had been delivered at The SCOAN in February 2012. After that experience, the young man embarked on the compulsory National Youth Service Corps programme and was posted to the capital city of Abuja where he was faced with the grim reality of hardship. Mr Onyekaozulu experienced so much hardship that he had to live in an area where the safety of life was not guaranteed. On one occasion, with his Morning Sticker on his door, armed robbers could not even knock; they passed his door and attacked other tenants.

As he continued to pray and minister the Morning Water, a business idea from heaven came to his mind. He started shoe business with the little money he had saved. He would move from office to office selling shoes. With credit facilities from a friend, his business grew. It got to a level that he bought a car from the proceeds of his business. The car became his mobile office as he would stock shoes in the boot and drive to offices to deliver to his customers. From there, he got a shop and stocked it with shoes. Business became very lucrative for Mr Onyekaozulu who now boasts of three good cars. He is also an employer of labour and has continued to support people who need help, especially in the area of their education. Apart from his shoe business, the young man is also involved in car business. He connects people to sellers and gets commission. Thanking God for the turn-around in his life, Mr Onyekaozulu urged people to seek first the Kingdom of God so that all other things would be added unto them.

CURVED SPINE STRAIGHTENED AND HEALED

Mrs Tsholofelo Moagi-Hlohlolo, a native of South Africa, suffered from a curved spine after she delivered her daughter. The condition deteriorated to the extent that she could not do her domestic chores. It was very difficult for her to drive even as she couldn’t carry heavy burden. She was taken to many hospitals yet there was no solution in sight.  A particular doctor even suggested that she be confined to a wheelchair but her belief in God lingered while she hoped for the best. A friend would later introduce her to Emmanuel TV after all her efforts to get medical help failed. Speaking emphatically, her friend told her that help would surely be found at The SCOAN. Mrs Tsholofelo Moagi-Hlohlolo

Visiting The SCOAN in 2014, Mrs Moagi-Hlohlolo received prayers from Prophet T.B. Joshua as well as the Morning Water. On her return to her native South Africa, she would give the Morning Water to her children who would in turn minister it on her body. As the ministration went on, she felt sensations on her body. Her healing was almost immediate; all the debilitating pains that accompanied her curved spine gave way to the healing hand of God. Today, she is totally healed and is fit, hale and hearty and does all those things she could not do before now. Mrs Moagi-Hlohlolo gave thanks to God for her healing and urged people all over the world to have faith in Him.

A HOPELESS SITUATION TURNS PROSPEROUS

Mr Isa Barguma was a civil servant in his native Adamawa State, Nigeria. As a Staff Officer, he could not achieve much with his salary. It was as if he was working from hand to mouth. The trend continued until he retired and was left with nothing apart from his paltry pension. All efforts to create something out of retirement failed. His plan to go into farming fell apart. He eventually embraced buying and selling but could not make much progress from that. It was at the verge of his frustrations that a friend introduced him to Emmanuel TV which he later installed in his house. Mr Isa Barguma

In May, 2015, Mr Barguma visited The SCOAN and received the Morning Water with which he prayed, insisting that he would not return to Adamawa empty-handed. As a mark of his seriousness with God, he ministered a whole bottle of the Morning Water on himself. Shortly after his arrival in Adamawa, things that happened can only be described as a raw expression of God’s power. Two weeks after his visit to The SCOAN, he bought a house of his own after his business experienced a sudden but miraculous boost. This was followed by a car. In a matter of three weeks, he was blessed with a house and a car – things that some other people labour for in their entire life time.

Thanking God for his restoration, Mr Barguma also highlighted the immense benefit of the Morning Water on his family’s health. According to him, ever since he started ministering the Morning Water in his home, no member of the family has fallen ill. He advised all retirees to run to Jesus.

AGE-LONG MIGRAINE IS NO MORE

For over six years, Miss Martha Obiofiong, a native of Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria, suffered from severe migraines which greatly affected her academic activities. The problem continued even when she embarked on the mandatory National Youth Service Corps programme. Having been posted to a school, she could not withstand the noise and unruliness of pupils to an extent that the Head Teacher always gave her permission to go and rest whenever she got tired. All medical efforts to solve her problem hit the brick walls

Miss Martha Obiofiong

One day, reprieve came her way. That day the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua made his first appearance after several months of dutiful absence and came with a great gift to the church – the Believer’s Card. Miss Obiofiong was one of the lucky recipients of that gift. After receiving the Believer’s Card, she prayed with it that very night. While discussing with family members, she felt like scratching her head. As she placed her hand on the spot she wanted to scratch, she removed a strange pin from there. Since that pin was removed, the age-long migraine ceased till date. While thanking God for her new-found freedom, Miss Obiofiong urged people all over the world not to limit God to a particular response but to leave everything to Him.

DIABETES AND HYPERTENSION MEET THEIR WATERLOO

Mr Samuel Banigo

Mr Samuel Banigo from Rivers State, Nigeria, suffered from diabetes and hypertension. The health challenge had been a recurring issue in his maternal lineage. Many of his aunts and uncles have died of the ailment. Even his mother had the same problem. Life became a shadow of itself for him as he would urinate frequently even when he was on a journey. Sometimes, he would pay additional money in order to allow drivers stop for him to ease himself. While everyone was asleep at night, he would visit the rest room continuously. All the drugs recommended for him by doctors proved incapable of helping his condition.

In 2015, Mr Banigo visited The SCOAN and came to the Prayer Line where only a wave from the hand of Prophet T.B. Joshua made the difference. According to him, immediately the man of God waved his hand towards him, he felt a cool sensation and afterwards, all the symptoms of diabetes and hypertension stopped. Returning to the same hospital that diagnosed him with those ailments, he was issued a clean bill of health stating that he was totally free from the two health monsters that tried to destroy his life. Mr Banigo urged people all over the world to accept the fact that Prophet T.B. Joshua is a man of God sent from Heaven to bring healing and salvation to mankind.

DISAPPOINTMENT TURNED TO APPOINTMENT THROUGH PROPHETIC WORD

Driven by a bitter disappointment and left lifeless like a ship without a sail, Mr Phumudzo Madzhie from South Africa came to The SCOAN in 2014, and received a prophecy by Prophet T.B. Joshua that he had applied to the USA and that he had been disqualified. The man of God instructed him that after the deliverance, he should reapply. The man of God also warned him that he should settle down with a lady before embarking on this journey. He had indeed applied to go to the USA though an organization initiated by the President of the US. He was disqualified and not selected, leaving him terribly rejected and frustrated. If not for the prophetic word, he would never have reapplied. However, before reapplying, he followed the second instruction in the prophecy to settle with his fiancée and within a few months, they got married because he knew it was an instruction in righteousness. There were 50,000 applications and only wanted 40 from South Africa. He calculated the percentage chance that it would be him as 0.0003. Nevertheless, he applied and was selected by the president of the USA as one of the 500 top up and coming businessmen across Africa to participate in the journey.

He went for the all expenses paid trip touring around the USA highlighting in Chicago and Washington DC. They had weeks of two lectures per day along with workshops and meetings with CEO’s of Fortune 500 companies, visiting the World Bank and Google HQ to name a few. He was also invited to go to the White House where he met the US President, Barack Obama. Now, he knows so many connections in different countries across Africa and several US capital organisations to be able to fund any of the projects that he wants to do. After coming back, he was able to start a restaurant under the franchise called Mike’s Kitchen. He began receiving multiple awards in this franchise as the Best Newcomer/Franchisee, 2014 and award of joining The Millionaires Club 2014, for a store that consistently had a turnover of over 1 million Rand per month. Being inspired by the example of Prophet T.B. Joshua, he has also sponsored over 300 families with food allowances, scholarships and internships at his company. His advice “is that the grace and mercy of God is all that you need. That is the only thing that can qualify you for the things that you want.” He also wanted to thank the man of God for giving his life direction because if not for the prophecy, he didn’t know where he would be today. Crowing the whole testimony off, the man of God smiled as he said, “You will soon leave that restaurant for your wife – something even bigger is coming for you”.

 

PROPHET T.B.JOSHUAIn his deep and incisive message on Sunday, 24 January, 2016 titled, Life Through The Spirit, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua admonished Christians on the need to understand the workings of God in the spirit realm because God is Spirit. God must be worshipped in spirit. Romans 8:14 says, “For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God.” According to Prophet T.B. Joshua, if you don’t worship God who is a Spirit, in the spirit, you will be led intellectually or by your emotions – what you see, hear, read or how you feel. If we do not worship God who is a Spirit, in the spirit, can we hope to obtain His favour and acceptance? So, we miss the end of worship. Speaking further, the man of God said, “When one does not worship God who is a Spirit, in the spirit, the worship is defective; that is, carnal – dealing only in the letter and referring to the Spirit and design, which are at a distance, by types and ceremonies. We must depend upon God’s Spirit for strength and assistance, laying our souls under His influence and operation (Romans 1:9). We should worship Him with fixedness of thought and a flame of affection, with all that is within us”. He then advised all to commit themselves to the guidance of the Word.

 

TESTIMONIES

MIRACULOUS HEALING AND BREAKTHROUGH
Mrs Charlotte Aidoo suffered from severe hypertension for five years. She was always weak and could not live the normal life she had been used to. Her career as a caterer was hugely affected as she could not deliver on orders made by her clients. Whenever she received orders she would hand them over to her apprentices who ended up disappointing her clients. It got to a time that she stopped receiving orders from customers because of her health. The financial toll the ailment took on her was unquantifiable as she spent a fortune on medication.

Mrs Aidoo visited The SCOAN and was at the Prayer Line where she received prayers from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua and was also blessed with the Morning Water. On her return to her native Ghana, she ministered the Morning Water after which she visited the hospital where she was certified free from hypertension. Mrs Aidoo is now back to her energetic self. She works hard, is very healthy and happy with her healing.

One day, when she had already gone back to Ghana, she was called that her bakery caught on fire. Immediately when she got the call, she was confident that God would take charge in the situation because she always faithfully ministered the Morning Water on her business in Jesus’ name. To the glory of God, when the fire was put out, nothing was destroyed. After the whole incident, someone told her that a man wearing white had come to the bakery and told the workers to put powdered soap inside water and spray it all over the bakery. Immediately after they did that, the fire stopped. Mrs Aidoo tried looking for the man who helped save her business, but to this date, they cannot trace the man at all. To God be the glory!

 

DELIVERED FROM THE SPIRIT OF DEATH

The spirit of premature death had been a thorn in the flesh of the Phiris back
in their native Zambia. Shortly after Mrs Phiri gave birth to her first baby girl, she lost her to that wicked spirit after weeks of medical care in the hospital. It was that unpalatable experience that led them to the discovery of Emmanuel TV. Consequently, Mr Phiri visited The SCOAN and received the Morning Water with which he returned to Zambia. After ministering the Morning Water together, the couple met as husband and wife.

Mrs Phiri eventually became pregnant and later delivered a second baby girl to the glory of God. Soon after the delivery of the baby, the same ailment that was said to have killed their first child reared its ugly head again. Having been diagnosed with pneumonia and anaemia, the new baby was bed-ridden in hospital and had to be placed under oxygen with urgent need of a blood transfusion. Mrs Phiri would not give in to fear. Instead, she continued to pray, ministering the Morning Water and believing her daughter was healed. She insisted her daughter should be discharged much to the displeasure of the doctors and nurses.

Back home with her daughter, Mrs Phiri continued to minister the Morning Water until it dawned on her that her daughter was indeed healed. Returning to the hospital for test, it was discovered that her daughter was free from all the ailments that had earlier been diagnosed in her – giving her a very outstanding clean bill of health. Mrs Phiri, while displaying all the medical test documents, thanked God for restoring her daughter’s health and for putting an end to the yoke of premature death that had tormented her for so long. She gave the following advice to viewers all over the world: “If you want to overcome the devil’s schemes, do so by the blood of Jesus and the word of your testimony.”

 

MUTIPLE MIRACLES THROUGH THE MORNING WATER
Mr and Mrs Marvellous Nweze had suffered from various different hardships. Mr Nweze had been involved in a terrible motor accident while he was on a journey from Accra, Ghana to Aflao. Prior to embarking on the journey, he ministered the Morning Water on himself. Along the way, he suddenly saw a white car directly in front of him. He tried to dodge it, but lost control causing the car to end up in the bush. While the car was still in motion it was as if he was struggling with an invisible being that was handling the steering wheel. The car finally reached a pot hole and started spinning and suddenly, it stopped. He pulled himself together and came out of the car. To his surprise, he discovered that all four tires of the car had deflated. It is indeed a miracle that a car could travel that distance with four deflated tires. There was a large crowd gathered around. They wondered how anyone could have come out of the vehicle alive.

He further testified about how God healed his son of a terrible sickness. According to him, he received a shocking message from the wife while he was away that their son was very sick and she was at the hospital with him. The doctors even reprimanded her as to why she allowed the sickness to reach such a level before seeking medical solution. She explained that it had happened within just 30 minutes. The sickness was so severe that the skin started to peel off. He looked as if he had been severely burnt. With no solution at hand, they ministered their son with the Morning Water and a miracle happened. The sores of the skin and mouth totally disappeared within hours. Seeing the baby now, one would hardly believe he once suffered from such a terrible sickness.

Mr Nweze continued his testimony by recounting how God delivered them from limitation in progress. This happened after they received their deliverance here, at The SCOAN. Their finances were totally transformed. They were able to buy a land and also build a magnificent house, having lived in a rented house for many years. He advised the congregation and viewers all over the world to believe in God; with Him, all things are possible.

 

GLAUCOMA CANNOT STAND THE LIGHT IN THE MORNING WATER

Mr Cyprien Mouanda suffered a terrible eye problem after an incident that happened eleven years ago while working for an oil company. For awhile, he was out of job as he searched for a lasting solution to his problem. When it appeared as if the ailment was abating, he joined an American company but could only work for seven months due to the resurgence of the eye disease. His company was compassionate; they got him a consultant optician who eventually diagnosed him with glaucoma.

As he resorted to glasses to help improve his sight, his wife discovered Emmanuel TV and shared the marvellous news with him. After realising that they had been missing God’s raw power, the couple decided to visit The SCOAN where they received the Morning Water. When they returned to their native Gabon, Mr Mouanda continued to minister the Morning Water on his eye. Removing his glasses one morning while watching Emmanuel TV, he discovered he could read the subtitles. He tried to read his Bible and saw everything clearly. Returning to the doctors for confirmation, he was certified free from the eye disease that rendered him inefficient at work. Mr Muoanda proclaimed his healing as he also affirmed that God has continued to work in his life since the restoration of his sight.

END OF THE ROAD FOR FAMILY IDOL

Mr Kanyi Randy was possessed by the family idol when he was only two years. He grew up with the spirit and eventually started manifesting some strange characters. He would spend most of his time with computers at the cyber cafe. His computer skills were very obvious but he used them the wrong way. He would build websites for people for illicit businesses. As he progressed in school, he became a truant who would go out to get drugs for his mates. He started ganging up with bad friends who ensured that his appetite for alcohol and Indian hemp remained unmatchable.

Randy was dismissed from five different schools for his misdemeanours. He later became a scammer, using the credit cards of unsuspecting people to shop for free online. His mastery of the internet made him an asset even to churches where he was taken for deliverance. After spending days in one particular church, he had to be sent away for being irredeemable; the pastor could not deliver him. Randy continued to have horrible dreams in which he found himself eating assorted food and having sexual relations with women.

From his internet escapades, Randy made money which he usually squandered on girls of easy virtue at clubs and casinos. He would keep late nights in the company of rugged friends. On one occasion, he was beaten and stabbed and nearly lost his life in the process. Randy’s voracious appetite for money was alarming. He would spend millions of CFAs in a matter of days, frolicking from one 5-star hotel to the other. His life style gave his mother so much stress. She would borrow money to pay his school fees yet he would mess up himself with his wayward fancies. Fed up with his life, his mother handed him over to his aunt who took it upon herself to bring him down to The SCOAN for deliverance. During the ministration of the Morning Water on a Sunday service, the young man fell under the power of God just as the spirit cried out through him, “I am the family idol… nothing good comes out of his life… I give him money anytime he needs it… He has talent but I use it negatively.” In spite of all attempts to resist arrest and binding, the spirit tormenting young Randy was cast out finally.

Testifying in an emotion-laden recall of his irresponsible past, Randy regretted the pains he had put his mother through and thanked God for his freedom. The young man advised the youth to pursue hard work instead of quick fixes.

Having been sent by Prophet T.B. Joshua, in Jesus’ name, Evangelists Yinka and Rikhard led a great onslaught against the kingdom of darkness during the  Mass Prayer. It was historic in the sense that many were set free from age-long bondages and demonic manipulations. Many vomited all substances of spiritual contamination that had wreaked havoc on their lives for so long. To God be the Glory
