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

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


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

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

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


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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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

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

God’s overflowing mercies remain the hallmark of worship and thanksgiving that have continued to characterise every Sunday Service at The SCOAN. On Sunday, March 8, 2015, that intense atmosphere of worship and praise radiated the entire congregation, creating a connection between the worshippers and the host of Heaven whose presence was felt in the depth of the soul-lifting songs delivered by the Emmanuel Singers. Every aspect of the service symbolised God. From the smiles that emanated out of hopeful countenances to the unhindered dance steps of those moved by the Spirit, the reality of God’s presence was written all over the gallery down to the overflows where great testimonies of His wonder-working nature never ceased to blossom like trees planted by the river side and watered by the Lord.

T.B. Joshua

Speaking generally on the ideal attitude of Christians to situations around them, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua urged Christians to desist from the act of worrying as it lays them back and disconnects them from the intervention of God. Instead of worrying, he says they should, at every point in time, cast their burdens unto God: “When one is thinking, worried and troubled, your spirit cannot be free to attract the Spirit of God. We cannot be available for God when we are worried. Maybe something is troubling or worrying you; you cannot be available for God’s Spirit. It is when we are free, our spirit is free. This is why 1 Peter 5:7 says, ‘Cast your cares, your troubles to God because He cares for you and loves you’. When we are troubled, we cannot be sensitive to the Spirit of God. You need a free spirit to pray. You need a free spirit to hear from God. You cannot hear from God when your spirit is troubled”. The man of God further admonished Christians from allowing burdens stand between them and the goodness of God. He observed that as soon as we are ready to commune with God in whatever way, we must ensure that all our burdens are forgotten: “When you want to open your Bible and read, it is time to give all your trouble. When you take up your Bible, immediately give all your cares and troubles to God. Leave all that is worrying you and bothering you before opening the Bible. If not, you will read but will not be able to obey what you read…It is not all up to God; certainly it is not all up to you. It takes your genuine willingness and God’s ability to achieve something. You can choose to overlook everything and open your Bible and read. Don’t look for the solution for the trouble you have in the Bible. Read the Bible for the salvation of your soul”.

The man of God also reminded Christians about the indispensable place of meditation in the walk and communion with God. According to him, meditation brings about insight and helps to erase mental obstacles from the mind: “Ask for a free spirit. Meditation reveals the burden in our spirit. Meditation exposes the burden in our spirit. That is why we have the Faith Bracelet. “Oh Holy Spirit, take more of me; give me more of You”.

Testimonies are the proof of God’s ubiquitous presence. His divine covenant with His Church will continue to produce great signs and wonders to the glory of His name and the salvation and redemption of His people. The following testimonies are a confirmation that you too can be touched by God, no matter your condition and situation. Distance is not a barrier!

MR AKINMUYISE OLAOLUWALife was so unfair to Mr. Olaoluwa Akinmuyise that he found it a herculean task to carter to the needs of his family, finding himself on the throes of penury and stagnancy. His donkey years as a truck driver did not avail much reward to his life. However, Mr. Akinmuyise’s encounter with a friend inspired his decision to start watching Emmanuel TV. Thereafter, the urge to visit The SCOAN became irrepressibly expedient.

A radical transformation soon took hold of his life after just one week of his visit to The SCOAN where he received the Anointing Water. After ministering it in prayer, life began to smile at him and things took a promising dimension, restoring hope to his once poverty-stricken life. The former truck driver who was once tossed around by the ruthless winds of an unfortunate faith has become a company director with numerous employees. He owns trucks and now smiles to the bank with millions. Within three months of visiting The SCOAN, he has built a duplex in which he resides. According to Mr. Olaoluwa, the Anointing Water is not just ordinary water; it is a wonder-working gift from God. The man who borrowed money to transport himself to The SCOAN is now a millionaire. According to the joy-filled Olaoluwa, Christians should never lose hope but rather put their trust in God as true transformation can only come from God.

MR OBA ANTHONYThe pain transcended the limits of the ordinary after persisting for 32 long years. Mr. Oba Anthony Tokunbo’s medical consultation revealed he had stones in his gall bladder, a condition that prompted doctors to suggest an urgent operation in order to avoid total damage. Worried and fatigued as a result of excruciating migraines and an increasing blood pressure, Mr Anthony feared an operation. Looking elsewhere for solution, he chose to make his way to The SCOAN rather than the operating room and he received the Morning Water. On the date scheduled for his operation, Mr Anthony ministered the Morning water in prayer and headed to the hospital in faith.

As precursor to the anticipated surgery, the doctor carried out further tests. Upon receiving the results that day, he asked Mr Anthony, “How did it happen?” The ways of God are not the ways of man. The gall stones had disappeared! The doctor declared that Anthony was free to go. When Jesus sets a man free, he is free indeed.

Anthony urged viewers to believe in God and the reality of His incomparable power as he thanked God for what He has done for him through the medium of the Morning Water, in Jesus’ name.

MRS THERESA DIMYA (2)For Theresa, life was on the brink of total collapse. Hypertension, pain and terrible headaches became her lot and a family curse of recurrent death hung heavily on her senses, raising her suspicion that she was the next to go.

She was diagnosed of cervical spondylosis and was told she needed a neck collar which should be worn at all times. Her family decided to seek God’s intervention by bringing her to The SCOAN where Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her in the Prayer Line. Her entire body responded to the anointing by shaking uncontrollably. Her sickness bowed to the healing power of God and the neck collar was removed as she moved her neck and entire body freely for the first time in years!

Returning to testify at The SCOAN, Theresa said her life, once plagued by incessant fear of death, has now been taken over by faith. She urged people with one challenge or the other to believe in God.

MR ABRAHAM LUBANGA (1)The revelation that he would have to live with pain-killers all his life was a big blow to Mr. Abraham Lubanga, a Kenyan living in Sweden. He could not fathom how what started as a little pain in his knee escalated to the point where he had to wear a knee brace amid daily pain that was both excruciating and disappointing. His doctors had given up, saying that there was nothing medically possible to reverse his knee condition. But all things are possible with God!

He began to see a glimmer of hope after he was introduced to Emmanuel TV via YouTube by friends who had visited The SCOAN. Having listened to the numerous awe-inspiring testimonies through the channel, he made a trip to Nigeria. On arriving at The SCOAN, he was placed at the Prayer Line. As Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for him, a chilling sensation run all through his leg and then, his knee was restored. The overjoyed Kenyan told The SCOAN congregants that since that day, he has been living a pain-free life to the glory of God! He encouraged people to have faith as it is the only connection between them and the Healer, Jesus!

MRS JUER KUAC (1)Juer Kuac, a South Sudanese living in Australia, was tormented by an embarrassing scourge of bed-wetting that had been a family curse. It gravely affected her self-esteem, marriage and relationships. For over 30 years, she labored under the strangulating manacles of that unholy yoke.

A decisive effort to seek solution brought her to Nigeria, to the Arena of Liberty. She was at The SCOAN service last week when Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied that there was a lady who suffered from the yoke of bedwetting. Rushing forward, she received prayer in the power of the Holy Spirit and fell to the ground. Since then, she testified that she has been enjoying a new life and for the first time in 30 years, she sleeps peacefully without bedwetting. She thanked God for healing her through the name of Jesus.

PROPHET TThe SCOAN Sunday Service of February 15, 2015 was no doubt another huge success in the spiritual rejuvenation of God’s people. One thing that remains consistent with the church is its untiring resolve, passion for the salvation and redemption of mankind from all walks of life irrespective of gender or race. Hence, the name The Synagogue, Church of All Nations is not accidental but a fulfilment of the ministry’s God-given mandate to affect lives all over the world. It was therefore with an awe-inspiring approach that the entire congregation prepared their minds to receive the spiritual food dished out by the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua as well as the rich musical interjections by the spectacular Emmanuel Singers, a group whose reputation in musical ministration is soaring internationally.

Delivering his message titled CHRIST WILL MAKE HIS HOME IN YOUR HEARTS, the man of God affirmed that for our hearts to be qualified to be Christ’s home, we must put our trust in Him. We cannot claim to have Him in our hearts when our trust is on strange gods and deities. He cannot make our hearts his abode when our love for worldly pleasures supersedes our desire for Him. According to the man of God, who referred to the book of Romans 9:1, “Our heart is the communication/contact point. Christ dwells in our heart through faith. This means, it is the Word dwelling in you which is equivalent with Christ personally being in you. This means, Christ and the Word are one. If you know Christ and His Word are one, you bring Christ on the scene. Anytime you say, “In Jesus’ name”, you bring Christ on the scene instantly. Can’t you see the reason why you have not brought Jesus to the scene? Anytime you pray, you hear yourself, people around you hear you but Christ doesn’t hear you. When Christ doesn’t hear you and the people around you hear you, it is a dangerous mission”.


Animating the occasion with the popular Christian song Trust and Obey, Prophet T.B. Joshua analyses the way and manner in which Christ builds His home in our hearts through the Word: “As the Word dominates, rules and sanctifies our spirit’s nature, He is building Himself and making Himself a part of us. The faith bracelet will help you as you meditate the Word, it will dominate your heart; it will rule your heart and sanctify your spirit’s nature”. Speaking further, the man of God highlighted the relationship between meditating on the Word and uninhibited communion with God: “Meditation in the Word is a visit with God. As you meditate in the Word, it becomes part of us and we become a part of it. Meditation is not thinking but more than that because when we talk about thinking, we talk about the senses. Think more”.

Re-emphasising the essence of meditation in the life of a Christian, the man of God urged the congregation to embrace the practice as it affords them the opportunity of getting deeper insights into life and divine direction. He frowned on the lukewarm attitude of many towards the practice: “There is an area in our life we have neglected – meditation. There must be a quiet time when you sit down, imagine if this life is over, what is next. What you have never experienced before, think about that. Think of those who have gone. Think about what they left behind. This is what you have never heard. What you have never experienced before, think about it, if life is over. Think of those who have gone, friends, colleagues or relatives. After that, you can take your faith bracelet and begin to meditate”.

Explaining the role faith plays in our walk with God, Prophet T.B. Joshua stated that it is very difficult to please God without it. Hence, the need for Christians to exercise their faith at all times in order to be able to unleash their wonder-working potentials: “Only faith pleases God. Faith is perfected by our acting on the Word. How do you act on the Word? This is the secret. Faith comes through hearing the Word of God. There is more to that. Faith is hearing and obeying. You cannot obey that Word when the Word has not dominated, ruled and lived in your heart. Faith is like a coin. Faith is a Heavenly currency. You must take this Word to heart. It is what is dominating your heart that you can shout. This will replace everything”.

In conclusion, Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke on the secret of faith: “The secret of faith, the Word must dwell, live and rule your heart. Faith is perfected by our acting on the Word. The Word must dominate, rule and live in our heart. This is the secret of faith”. And for those who allow God to make His home in their hearts, Prophet T.B. Joshua describes them in the following words: “The Lord has given you a foundation. If today were your last day on earth, what will happen? You will begin to see revelation about yourself and others and from there, God will strengthen your mind to remember. The whole world doesn’t know what will happen next. This is what Christianity is all about – God’s opinion about yourself and others”.


God is no respecter of persons and situations. No matter the problem; irrespective of how long it has existed, God will continue to level every situation to the glory of His name. At The SCOAN, testimonies are the greatest proof of God’s presence. The following testimonies will build your faith and inspire you to hold on dearly to God. Emmanuel!


AKE LISIYINE PIUS (1)Akelisiyine Pius came to The SCOAN from Ghana with the problem of abject poverty (to the extent that he could not take care of his family).  Before going back to Ghana, he received the Anointing Water and believed that his life would turn around. After ministering the Anointing Water in the name of Jesus, he dreamt that Prophet T.B. Joshua was walking with him through a school. When he woke up, he started praying, although he had never had any previous thought of starting a school project. A few weeks later, his attention was brought to an abandoned school in his area. He purchased and took over the school and started operating in the middle of the academiAKE LISIYINE PIUS (2)c year. Despite this, the process was very smooth because God was behind it. The school started with 65 students but before the end of that week, the school was filled up with 100 students. Now, to the glory of God, there are 330 students studying in his school. To add to the facility of the school, he bought a small van. Seeing the school was growing bigger and bigger, he had to buy a bigger school bus in addition to the small van. As the number of pupils continued to increase at a fast rate, he had to purchase an additional coaster bus to properly serve the pupils. Mr Pius advises everyone to do what God has put in their heart with faith.


MISS ASATU SHERIFFIf evil could be adequately defined in a story, Asatu’s would perhaps be a model. A background stooped in satanic secrecy opened the gateway for wickedness of unimaginable proportions to work through her. Initiated at a tender age into a cult that thrived on the belief in animal superiority, Asatu’s private parts were marked for destruction in a sick ritual. Her parents’ premature death led her to seek spiritual help in darker places that only ended up entangling her deeper in bondage. An attempt at marriage ended abysmally as the relationship that spawned two young children ended with her being thrown onto the streets. Desperate and smarting with anger, Asatu succumbed to the lure of ‘greener pastures’ abroad, following a strange lady to Nigeria.

Upon reaching Nigeria, the lady took her to a witchdoctor, whose charm, which promised to restore her marital bliss, ended up killing her estranged husband. Resorting to prostitution, Asatu roamed the four corners of Nigeria, sleeping with up to 30 men in a day to fend for herself. Burdened by her two young children, her willpower eventually whittled away to the point where the unthinkable became feasible – she ‘gave’ out her kids. “I have no ideas where they are right now,” she confessed to the shocked congregants at The SCOAN.

Eventually ending up in Lagos on the prostitution trail, the brothel where she ‘worked’ was broadcasting an unusual television station – Emmanuel TV. Upon watching and learning The SCOAN was located in Lagos, she made the decision to attend the service last week, tired of her dirty lifestyle. As Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for calmness to descend upon the congregants in the mass prayer, an incredible sequence of events unfolded for Asatu! A shocking, rumbling sensation welled within her stomach forcing her to her knees. Then, it came out. A disgusting item wrapped in red thread with a needle interwoven. The charm she had ingested many years ago in the home of a spiritualist had been forced out by God’s power!

After her deliverance, Asatu testified that the terrible dreams she previously had of dungeons and graveyards were gone as was the urge to engage in illicit prostitution.  “Believe in God,” she tearfully advised the somber congregation. “Leave evil and give your life to God. Only God has the final say in everything.”


MR & MRS DECKY ENYOINSM NUKURU (1)Mr. and Mrs. Decku alongside Miss Nukunu, Mrs. Decku’s younger sister came to The SCOAN with their lives full of challenges. While Mrs. Decku’s case was incessant miscarriages, her younger sister Miss Nukunu was suffering from abject poverty. Mrs Decku who had been married for three years would always have a nightmare anytime she MR & MRS DECKY ENYOINSM NUKURU (2)was pregnant and that experience always ended in her losing the pregnancy. Her husband was dejected about her condition and the state of things. The trio came to a conclusion to come to The SCOAN to receive the ministration of the Anointing Water. As the couple went back to Ghana, they prayed, ministered the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name and met as husband and wife. One day, while they visited the doctor to attend to his health, it was also confirmed that his wife was pregnant. Praise the Lord! Miss Nikunu on her own part, after receiving the ministration of the Anointing Water, received a call from a friend who owns a big company in Ghana. She was offered a job as a sales MR & MRS DECKY ENYOINSM NUKURU (3)representative for one of the branches of his company. Her salary was increased ten times more than what she earned before. Indeed, with God’s power, nothing is impossible!




MR GODWIN NWOKOLO (1)Nwakolo Godwin came to The SCOAN from Delta State, Nigeria with difficulty in walking due to lumbar spondylosis. As a result, he could neither walk well nor stand for more than five minutes. He could not sleep because of the excruciating pain he had. He had visited several places in search of solution to this problem but all to no avail. He then decided to come to The SCOAN for his healing. He was arranged at The SCOAN Prayer Line. Immediately Prophet T.B. Joshua touched him, he received instant healing. He could not explain how this happened; all he knew was that he was healed. Now that he is healed, he can do anything. Indeed, there is never a problem that Jesus cannot solve and there is never a sickness that Jesus cannot heal.MR GODWIN NWOKOLO (2)


The prophecy that his addiction to the internet had led to the collapse of his marriage hit him like a bolt out of the blues. Mr. Childress Simmons Jnr. Could not deny the cataclysmic turn his life had taken after the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua had uncovered the dark corner of his life.

His mother’s separation from his father was the beginning of his doom. With no choice, he went with his mother to live with her new found love, his step-father. There, his young life was infected with the spirit of pornography through his step-brother who actually introduced him into the evil practice, being in ownership of a rich library of pornographic magazines and videos. At the tender age of 10 he was already addicted. His young life was already shedding its innocence and was at the trench destruction. With time, the contagious hands of pornography continued to pull him down the abyss of deeper addiction. He would keep unholy vigils just to satiate his senses with pornographic videos. The act became some sort of escapist mechanism for him whenever he wanted to cure himself of depression.

Due to his excessive nocturnal ritual of watching pornographic videos, he became a social menace; he would sleep while driving as a result of exhaustion. His mindset was corrupted to the extent that he had no regard for women. After all, he had seen it all! Those things that made womanhood sacred were the same he saw and trivialised at will. Haunting him like a ghost passionate to destroy its target at all cost, his addiction to pornography became the Achilles Hill of his life. The only thing that motivated him into marriage was the satisfaction of his sexual fantasies – a disease which his addiction had brought about. His marriage eventually crumbled after few months when he realised that his appetites were insatiable just as his diseased thinking was incurable. His knack for masturbation increased with every successful pornographic exercise.

MR CHIDRESS SIMMONSMr Simmons was lost to world that was destroying him gradually. He was even unaware that he needed help. He was deeply engrossed in the unwholesome practices of masturbation and pornography even when a second marriage was consummated. “All this while, I knew I was killing myself but there was nothing I could do about it. In my second relationship I started looking for a solution. I started fasting and going to prayer houses”. It dawned on him that he needed God to deliver him from the dungeon of self-destruction he had thrown himself into.

At the peak of his evil engagement, he would be on the internet having sex with strangers via webcam. His lustful ways graduated rather pitiably and made him a sorry case. “The spirit of lust as a result of pornography led me to get married to women who were divorced and had bad marriages…

At the Prayer Line, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for me and I immediately knew I was delivered. Since my deliverance, I don’t look at women as physical objects anymore; I see them as daughters of God that need to be respected and also my heart has been renewed. As a young man, I am now excelling in everything I put my hand to. I was at the rock bottom; I was hopeless before I came to The SCOAN. I advise young people to desist from pornography because it will only open doors for demons into their lives. I also want parents to keep good watch over the affairs of their children”.

Prophet T.B. JoshuaOn Sunday February 9, 2015, the mighty presence of God was felt at the church service of The SCOAN. Apart from the edifying ministrations of the Emmanuel Singers, the passion and excitement of the congregation to connect with Heaven through prayer added spiritual substance to the day.

The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua engaged the congregation in an enlightening yet instructive message about MEDITATION. According to the man of God, “Meditation brings revelation… Meditation in the Word is a visit with God. The Word becomes a part of us by meditation. If meditation in the Word is a visit with God, this means, meditation makes the Word a part of us. The Word becomes a part of us by meditation. Today, we talk of prayer and fasting but I have never heard where they lay emphasis on meditation”. In other words, the essence of meditation in the life of a Christian is phenomenal. Unfortunately, most Christians prefer to jump into fasting and prayer rather than meditate on the Word which in actual fact hastens the communion between man and God. It is when we constantly meditate on the Word of God that we receive heavenly insights for the future.

Speaking further, Prophet T.B. Joshua bemoaned the attitude of Christians to meditation, stressing that it is the foundation of every good plan or vision that sets out to prosper: “It is an issue Christians play down but it is fundamental; it is a foundation. People play down the word, ‘meditation’. For your plan towards a business to work smoothly, you must sit down and meditate where you are going, how much you need to spend, etc. It may be when you are lying on your bed in the night privately. You may be crying alone or smiling alone. Meditation means think more. Faith comes when the Word prevails over the thinking processes.” Describing meditation further as “more than thinking”, the man of God posited that it can take a Christian to the level when he or she becomes absorbed. According to him, that is the level where most Christians begin to speak in tongues: “When you engage in more than thinking, you may start crying or smiling, talking alone. You are talking to God and you have forgotten yourself. This is the level you need to go. This is the realm you can enjoy your life, not the realm you are. When you are thinking, you are aware of what is happening around you but when you are more than thinking, you are not aware of what is happening. This is the realm that can offer you speaking in tongues”.

Prophet T.B. Joshua concluded that we cannot reach God when our hearts are heavy with burdens: “You need a free spirit to interact, relate with God, to get on with God but your spirit is not free. The moment you discover that burden that put you in bondage, you can remove it by prayer. A free spirit is sensitive to the Spirit of God. The first thing you need to do is remove the burden. Faith makes the Word prevail”.

During Mass Prayer, the man of God took authority in the mighty name of Jesus to release those in whatever kind of bondage, ranging from career to health issues: “Whatever area of your life that is troubled, begin to command calmness. My career, business, spiritual life, destiny – I command calmness!”

EVANGELIST ANNEIn an earlier exhortation, Evangelist Anne, speaking on a message titled, ‘TRUST IN THE LORD BEFORE THE LIONS ARRIVE’ enjoined Christians to always be of good cheer in times of trials. She discouraged the attitude of asking God questions when things go awry, observing that what our Creator requires at all times is total trust in Him as exemplified by many biblical heroes. She also frowned at the faithless outbursts of unbelievers who would quickly blame God for all their failings: If you ask someone who doesn’t believe in God why he doesn’t believe. The answer you will likely get is this – “If a loving God exists, why does He stand by and do nothing when others are hurting? Where was he when my innocent brother was jailed for a crime he never committed? Where was he when as a graduate, I was denied my right in society and had to join the men of the underworld? Where was he when everyone in my family became so poor that I now cater for them through prostitution?”

Encouraging Christians not to make hasty conclusions about God when they are faced with temporary challenges, she also reminded them that the present should not be used to judge the future because, the present might be gloomy but with God, there will always be a future full of hope: “Today, many act more like God’s enemies than his friends because of an inability to see beyond their immediate situation. They become rebellious in nature and often misinterpret God’s silence as rejection; they surrender to their fears while their hearts dream of a miracle and are quick to conclude that there is no future/hope/God!”

Evangelist Anne made reference to biblical characters like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego as well as Job and explained in detail how their trust in God turned their situations around even in the face of grave dangers: “Many biblical heroes had their faith challenged in a new way but they never cut off their dependence upon God. They knew that personal fulfilment and achievement came from learning from both positive and negative experiences; that there were no short cuts to spiritual maturity and that in their spiritual walk with God, there would be good and hard times”.

Concluding, Evangelist Anne admonished Christians about the antics of satan who would always want them to dwell on things God has not given them rather than those He has given them, stating that they are all ploys by the devil to place the world in their hearts so that Christ would be displaced: “Because satan knows he cannot stop those with spiritual insight into Christ Jesus, his main aim is to get you to forget all God has given and focus on what you don’t have.  But a Christian cannot afford to forget God than the Israelites could in their daily life. You can deny, ridicule, slander, and ignore God but His love remains constant and unchanging”.


At The SCOAN, testimonies are a daily affair – a confirmation of the wondrous presence of God! With every testimony, His name is exalted on high and His mercies shall continue to endure and abide with us all in Jesus’ name. The following testimonies are proof that you too can be a partaker of His divine grace. Emmanuel!


MISS LUCY AGADAOne day Lucy Agada from Benue was taking a stroll in a field; she would never have imagined that this seemingly harmless act would be a turning point for the worse in her life. As she was walking, she smelt the scent of anthill soil and it appealed to her. Taking some from the ground, she began to eat it. That was the beginning of her addiction. Before long, she was totally addicted to the anthill soil, preferring it to ordinary food. To her, it tasted like chocolate and she would eat it four to five times a day. Her friends and family members thought she was mentally ill and she was very embarrassed but the craving continued all the more. Each time she tried to stop it, the desire would increase. The addiction went on for four years. She became desperate and in faith decided to come to The SCOAN for deliverance. At the Prayer Line, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her and ministered the Morning Water on her. She received her deliverance and the desire for the anthill soil vanished as quickly as it came. Free and full of joy, she testified to the great change in her life. She can now eat normally to the glory of God!



MISS DUME UCHE RITAMiss Dume Rita’s life was brought to a standstill when she was diagnosed with asthma two years ago. This sickness was not just ordinary asthma. It was an affliction that affected every area of her life. She would have attacks three times a week and would be rushed to hospital at times in a critical condition. She did not look for work with any enthusiasm knowing that no company would accept her with such an affliction. She would have to dress warmly all the time in an attempt to guard against the frequent attacks. She was also allergic to perfume and immediately she smelt the scent of strong perfume, an attack would start. Watching Emmanuel TV, she believed that her sickness would be wiped away if she could just get hold of the Morning Water.

A friend came to The SCOAN and received the Morning Water. She gave it to Rita and after ministering it, the asthma vanished completely. She began to breathe normally and strength and life returned to her; she is healed! Now, she can use perfume and is no longer taking regular trips to the hospital. Not only was she healed physically; her career also turned around. After two years of unemployment, despite being a Business Management Graduate, she was blessed with a new job as a Retail Manager in a bank.

To cap it all, she was also healed of severe menstrual pain after Ministering the Morning Water. Her setback and sickness has truly been wiped away, in the name of Jesus Christ!



MRS PATRICIAImagine having to sleep in a seated position every night. How would it feel not to be able MRS PATRICIA 2to look back, to the right or to the left? This was the unfortunate position Mrs. Patricia Onwubiko found herself in. Diagnosed with cervical spondylosis, she was given a neck collar which was to be worn at all times. This neck collar did little to ease the severe pain she was passing through. Not able to move around or even eat, she was truly in a sorry state. That was before she was brought to The SCOAN and received prayer from Prophet T.B. Joshua with the Morning Water. With just one spray, the muscles in her neck became loose and her bones were shifted back to their original position. She began turning her neck freely to the glory of God! Now free from pain, she threw away her neck collar, rejoicing at the healing power of Jesus Christ!

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

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

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


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


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


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


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

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

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





The wonderful works of God abound at The SCOAN. He has continued confirm His mighty presence here. Multitudes are being healed of different ailments and loosed from all forms of chains to the glory of His name. The following testimonies will kindle your hope to realise that no matter the situation, God is more than up to the task if only you would have faith. As you read, may your testimony meet you as soon as possible, in Jesus’ name. Amen!



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


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


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




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


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


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


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


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




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


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


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


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




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


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


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




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


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


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


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


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


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

With the year 2014 still in its infancy days, and having been prophetically christened by Prophet T.B. Joshua as ‘The Year of Crossing the Bridge’, nothing could be more timely than a call for Christians to be in an attitude of prayer all the time. The Man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, quoted the book of Joshua 1:8; which teaches about keeping and speaking the Word of God.Image


The prophet gave three take-home points: Keeping the Word of God in one’s mouth, meditating day and night in the Word, and doing what the Word says.


Explained the Man of God: “If the heart and mouth are in one accord with God’s Word, you will begin to tap the blessings of God. If the Word dominates your heart, it will surely influence your conduct and behavior and you will do what the Word says. The Word cannot dominate your heart by just reading it, but by meditating day and night. You have to cultivate this habit.”


Prophet T.B. Joshua later ministered prayer at the Prayer Line where people from all over the world received healings, deliverances and prophecies, by the power of the Holy Spirit and in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.


Earlier on, Wise Man Christopher preached on the message: THE PROPHETIC PICTURE OF OUR FUTURE, urging Christians not to look at their situations from the human point of view but God’s. The proof-text was from the book of Genesis 37:5-11; a scripture about Joseph and how the Spirit of God gave him a prophetic picture of his future in a dream and saw himself in a position of authority.Image

He explained, “Your conduct and behaviour cannot change unless the Holy Spirit gives birth in you a picture of what He is looking at when He sees you. And that picture is a victor not a victim, a successful person not a failure, a blessed and healthy person not a poor and sick person. Like Joseph, if the Lord is with you, you would be comforted in whatever situation you find yourself. When God is supporting your position, there is comfort in affliction; strength in your weakness”.



There was an abundance of testimonies from scores of people who came to give God the glory for the goodness He has done in their lives. Be blessed, in Jesus’ name, as you read a few of the amazing and awesome testimonies. We hope they will lift your faith and bring you close to God.



Mrs Chioma Okorie and family came to The SCOAN to testify about the resurrection power they had experienced in the name of Jesus Christ. She and her family had gone on a visit to their village at the beginning of this month. However, what had started as a happy excursion to cheer friends and relatives, ended in horror when, on their way back to the city, their car crashed as they were trying to avoid an oncoming speeding car. While she, her husband and daughter came out safely from the wreck without a scratch, a family friend’s daughter who was with them in the car, collapsed. They rushed her to the hospital but, on arrival, she was confirmed dead, to the shock of everyone. Mrs Okorie became worried and agitated not knowing how she would explain to the family that her own family had come out safely but their daughter had died. She remembered that she had in her handbag the Anointing Sticker she had received from The SCOAN. She placed it on the dead body and prayed with it for the resurrection power of Jesus Christ to restore the girl’s life. While praying in the name of Jesus, the girl stirred, woke up and began to talk, to the amazement of everyone.


“The first thing she asked was, ‘where is uncle?’ and we knew she was back to life,” said Mrs Okorie.

Ada Chukwu, the girl concerned, came out to testify that all she could remember was waking up on the hospital bed with the Anointing Sticker on her body. Praise God!



ImageMr Edolor and his family came to express their sincere gratitude to God for His life-giving power. Mr Martins Edolor, 45 years-old, had developed scrotum cancer from what started as a tiny boil. The small sore turned into a fully-fledged wound that oozed blood and smelly pus. He could not eat. The scrotum as well as his stomach became very swollen. He was urinating blood. He could not drive or walk around or even wear trousers. The pain increased everyday and no drug he took worked. He went to the hospital and they carried out tests on him but they could not treat his condition because it had become too severe. The doctors only gave him some medication just to ease the pain. When his father saw him lie in the hospital bed with a big foul-smelling wound on his private parts and flies buzzing all over the room, he simply broke down in tears. He had just lost three sons in three years and could not stand the sight of seeing another inch close to the edge of yet another grave.Image


His sister, Comfort, a member of The SCOAN, encouraged him that he would not die; that the God of Prophet T.B. Joshua would heal him. She connected his phone so that he could hear Prophet T.B. Joshua’s prayers. He began to pray with the man of God. That night, after the prayer, the boil burst open. Blood and strange objects started coming out of the anus. For the first time, he had a slight relief and was able to move his leg. Three days later, they brought him to The SCOAN. By now, the horrible smell from the cancer had gone, making it easier for people to travel with him. He joined the prayer line and, as one of the Wise Men approached him, he said, he felt a cold sensation flow down his body to his feet. He stood up, all the pain was gone! For the first time in three weeks, he asked for his pair of trousers to be brought for him. He had been wearing a wrapper to avoid hurting himself.

“Within days after the prayer, the wound healed. Up to now, everything is normal and you cannot tell that I ever had scrotum cancer,” he said.


Mr Edolor is now back to his business, selling foodstuffs and living his life freely to the glory of God. His 84 year-old father said if his son had died, he was also ready to die as he could not bear the anguish. His sister, Comfort, advised people to get connected to the prayers of Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV and that Jesus Christ would transform their life.


Engineer Ben and Family came to testify how they got breakthrough through the Anointing Sticker and Anointing Water. Although he and his family were staying in town, they had been facing serious accommodation problems when they visited the village. They had been making frantic efforts to build a house to replace the one left by his grandfather but due to financial setbacks, it all proved abortive. In 2012 they received the Anointing Water and the Anointing Sticker from The SCOAN with which he and his wife prayed with it for a miracle. In the same year, he had a dream in which he was reconstructing the old house and getting to his office, asked an architect to sketch it for him. With faith, he put the Anointing Sticker on the door of the old house and instructed his people to start clearing the ground around the old house telling them this was where God wanted them to start. He sprinkled the Anointing Water on the foundation of the new building and prayed in Jesus’ name. Since that time, they did not stop construction until the 10-room duplex building was completed. What they had failed to complete in years, was finished in just two and a half months. Also, while the construction was going on; God blessed him with a new SUV car. In December they all travelled to the village and no one could recognise the way to their house because in place of the old building was a new magnificent house, fully furnished. 



Taking her turn to testify was Mrs Theophilla Myoba from Lusaka in Zambia.  She had earlier come to The SCOAN with the problem of setback and limitation. Her family had been suffering from abject poverty. They were barely surviving. After human power and wisdom had failed to bail the family out of the seeming perpetual problem, she concluded that God was the only solution. Mrs Myoba’s situation was so critical that she even had to borrow money for her transport to come to The SCOAN. Even the clothes she wore, she borrowed. People laughed at her when she told them she was coming to The SCOAN but her faith was so strong that no one could dissuade her. While she was still at The SCOAN, a miracle happened. Her husband received a long-awaited promotion at his place of work and that marked the beginning of her breakthrough in the family. She also met the Man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, and was privileged to receive the Anointing Water. Back home in Zambia, taps of favour opened and poured upon her family. She received her own promotion. As a civil servant, she was able to complete a five-bedroom house she had been struggling to build. She is also a proud owner of two cars. She had never believed that she would ever own what she now has.Image


“Don’t listen to what people say; they laughed at me. Follow your heart and God will bless you,” she advised and showed viewers her new car and house she has built with God’s grace.



Miss Coulibaly Assetou, from Ivory Coast, came to give testimony of her breakthrough and also tell a tragic account of her encounter with a professional fraudster who conned her of an estimated US$100,000 meant for God’s work. Miss Assetou had been experiencing problems in her business but after ministering the Anointing Water and praying with faith in Jesus’ name, she was able to open a multinational company stretching from France to Belgium and Italy – the first vehicle transit company in Ivory Coast. Since then, she has experienced breakthrough in every area of her life.Image


She explained that she had found out about The SCOAN through a Marie France Monnet, a woman who claimed to be Prophet T.B. Joshua’s representative in Ivory Coast. To express her appreciation to God and to support the worthy cause of Emmanuel TV, she decided to become a partner of the ministry. In line with that understanding, she gave a total sum of 45 million CFA to the woman to present to The SCOAN and Emmanuel TV for tithe and partnership payments. The sum is equivalent to 100,000 US Dollars.


To her utter shock, when she came to The SCOAN last week, she discovered that the money had never reached The SCOAN and that she had fallen into the hands of a fraudster. She was stunned and could not believe that the woman she had held in high esteem was not what she had professed to be but an imposter with no fear of God.


As if that was not enough, the same woman, Marie France Monnet called and told her that the man of God had given her a prophecy that she should give more money or else something bad would happen to her in 2014. Standing before the congregation on Sunday, she warned everyone especially those from Ivory Coast to be careful not to be duped by the fraudster. She also warned that there is no Emmanuel TV office in the country and people should watch out for such unscrupulous individuals who steal in the name of the Lord.


According to her, the woman had even claimed that she was going to bring a wise man to Ivory Coast.  Viewers all over the world, be careful of those who are interested only in their personal gain!



Mrs Imah Rosemary, from Edo State, had been bleeding profusely through her nose and mouth for eight consecutive days due to a ruptured nose artery. The doctor fixed a drip on her but the bleeding continued all the more. Her condition was deteriorating by the day and her situation was critical as she was eight months pregnant. The doctors declared that there was nothing more they could do. It was in this desperate state that her husband rushed her to The SCOAN as the last beacon of hope. Blood was ceaselessly gushing from both her mouth and nostrils into a bucket placed on her lap. It was a shocking spectacle to watch. Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her at the prayer line and commanded the bleeding to stop, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. It did. Her nose and mouth went dry. Both her life and that of her unborn baby were saved and she has now safely delivered her baby boy and given him the name ‘Emmanuel’!  Her husband thanked Jesus for His mercy.Image


“She had stopped eating and drinking. The night after the prayer, she demanded for food and slept like a baby,” he said. When it was time for her to deliver her baby, they were in different locations but her husband ministered the Anointing Water on her picture, praying for her. A moment later, she called and told him that she had delivered safely without any complication. What a wonderful God we serve!


Mrs Gifty Torubiri’s great-great grandfather was a witchdoctor and fetish man. Apart from being a seer for the chief’s throne in his area, he provided charms to thieves. It is not surprising, therefore, that the spirit of stealing entered his family and developed deep roots that grew to haunt the generations after him. Each family that descended from him had armed robbers who did not hesitate to shed blood. Mrs Torubiri’s own father was a notorious armed robber and died in the act. His killing made headlines in the press. All male members of the family were notorious criminals who abducted women and raped them. Not long ago, she was called to view bodies of her uncles shot dead by the police during a failed robbery attempt. Many people gathered to watch the execution. Meanwhile, all the females in the family have been prostitutes or married to armed robbers. After marrying armed robbers, they would give birth to armed robbers and so the cycle of crime continued. Her mother too lived a criminal’s life; selling Indian hemp and moving from one hotel to another, prostituting herself. As for herself, she always felt something urging her to steal and she has slept with more men than she can remember, unbeknown to her husband. She even slept with her landlord and the chief in her village while married. She could not explain why, but said that she would always desire other women’s husbands and was never satisfied.


All this was exposed at The SCOAN where she came for prayer the previous week. However, what brought her were financial difficulties. Little did she know that the root of her problem was a horrific family curse of armed robbery. When it was time for her deliverance and one of the wise men was approaching her, she was praying but then, suddenly, something within her told her to run away. The evil spirit inside her started to confess that it was the ‘great old woman’ and that it was responsible for the spirit of armed robbery in her family and that it had destroyed her destiny. To God be the glory, she was finally delivered.


After her deliverance, she is free. The thought of stealing is no longer there and she no longer thinks about other men nor desires to sleep with other people’s husbands. She pleaded for deliverance of her whole family as she did not want to be a mother of armed robbers. Her 17-year old son, she said, was already stealing and had recently been caught stealing a fowl, for which he was severely beaten. The tragic part of her story was that every robber in the family would eventually get killed.


Commenting on her situation and the deliverance, Prophet T.B. Joshua explained that when one kills an armed robber or a criminal, it is the body that is killed and not the evil spirit which is the cause of the stealing, killing and destroying. Therefore, the solution is deliverance from that evil spirit. “Once an evil spirit is cast out by the Spirit of God in the name of Jesus, it is caged perpetually until the Day of Judgment”, he said.



Miss Misper Youngwe is a Cameroonian living in Germany. She had a dream where men sprayed tear gas on her. She woke up that day and had rashes all over her body. She went to the hospital where the doctors gave her medication to stop the rashes and scratching. She went for another test and was diagnosed to be a diabetic. This was strange to her because no one in her family had this problem. She started praying with Prophet T.B. Joshua while watching Emmanuel TV and carrying the test results, believing by faith for healing. She went for another test and glory to God, she was pronounced diabetic free to the surprise of the doctors. She advised that watching Emmanuel TV can transform your life.Image

ImageTrue Christianity lies in the heart! This was the heart of the message the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, dwelled on when he ministered to the masses that congregated at The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria and viewers of Emmanuel TV, last Sunday. Prophet T.B. Joshua came out early on Sunday to open the service with a thought-provoking message.  Drawing his message from the book of James 1: 1-5,22 and Psalms 66:18, the man of God said that unless Christians begin to act, live and do the Word, they are deceiving themselves. Prophet T.B. Joshua’s message was titled: The Futility Of Self-Effort. He said that those who are inwardly pure show themselves to be under the power of pure and without the Holy Spirit destroying the root of sin in us, we are bound to be tormented by the desire to return to our bad habits. We must lift up to God not only clean hands but a pure heart.

“We are made in our heart to be like Jesus. On the last day, we will be judged not by the colour of our skin, but by the content of our character. True Christianity lies in the heart. It lies in the purity of the heart. The mind is renewed by studying the Word and by acting upon it. One may read or study the Bible for years, if he or she does not act it, live it, is not a doer, the mind is not renewed. The mind is renewed by studying the Word and by acting upon it. Christ and the Word are one. Meditation in the Word is a visit to Him. The Word becomes a part of us by meditation,” he said.

Zeroing in on the day’s message, he said the problem with Christians today is that they use self-effort to stop their bad habits. As a result, said the man of God, their proclamations as Christians or being born again, are in vain because they continue to suffer urges of the bad habits they confess to have stopped.

“God’s effort is grace. When you stop your bad habit with self-effort, you cannot stop the urge, but God’s effort can. Many become Christians, born-again, pastors, bishops, prophets with self-effort. Self-effort leaves us with urge. That, which comes out of the heart, defiles the mind. Self-effort is a wrong attitude toward sin. Without the Holy Spirit destroying the root of sin in us, we are bound to be tormented by our desire to return to our bad habits. The challenge many Christians, believers, pastors and the rest are facing, is the problem of urge behind closed doors – urge to continue many bad habits,” he said.

After the message, the congregation listened to the case of a family who had been prophesied to the previous week by Prophet T.B. Joshua. Below is a summary of their intriguing story.






Mr Alfred Etugbo from Delta State, Nigeria came out in response to a prophecy he had received the previous week from Prophet T.B. Joshua. The man of God had asked him about his wife and told him to bring her and his family.

He said that he was facing extreme setback in his business and challenges in his marriage. A friend then took him to a spiritualist who introduced him to a spiritual mirror. He was told that the mirror would show him the cause of his problems. The friend had lost his goods and they went to the mirror to find out where they were and what had happened. As a result of looking at the mirror, his friend went mental and it was only after the spiritualist did some incantations that he seemed to regain himself.

Mr Alfred was curious and decided to go back to the spiritual mirror and ask why his friend had become mad. He would ask a question to the mirror in his mind and then the mirror would answer by showing him images. The mirror showed him that his friend was the one who took his own goods and that the whole event was a ploy. He became infatuated with the spiritual mirror and kept on going there for consultation.Image

He had to drink a concoction and pay money before he could look at the spiritual mirror each time. He then decided to ask the spiritual mirror what happened to his car as his car had gone missing. The spiritual mirror revealed that it was his close relations that were involved in stealing the car. The spiritual mirror also showed him how his wife, sister and others were the cause of his problems. This led him to accuse his wife, his sister and a girl staying with them in the house to be involved in witchcraft.

The spiritual mirror even showed him how his sister had stolen his blessings by carrying his daughter and bringing her to him to kiss him. When he asked the mirror why he was experiencing delay in his job, the mirror revealed that his sister was the cause.

The conviction that he had concerning his wife and sister led him to behave strangely towards them in the house such as going on his knees and begging them to release him from his bondage. This he did under the instruction of the spiritual mirror. The spiritual mirror would reveal to him everything he needed to do.

He realised though that although the mirror would show him the problem, it would never provide a solution for him. That led him to look for a solution in various places. He found out about Emmanuel TV and eventually came to The SCOAN.

Prophet T.B. Joshua addressed the matter saying that the spiritual mirror was telling nothing but falsehood and that his wife, sister and the girl were not involved in witchcraft and were not the cause of his problems. He said that the whole family needed deliverance and that forgiveness comes with deliverance. He further stated that there was depression in the house but everything would be over after their deliverance.

Mrs Stella Etugbo told a little of her side of the story. She said that she had never believed in the spiritual mirror. She had bought cars for her husband and had been financially supporting the family since she met him. There was nothing that she did not do for him. She was surprised that at the end of the day, he called her a witch.

Prophet T.B. Joshua corrected her saying that it was not her husband who was calling her a witch but satan and that the whole blame should be placed on satan.

The man of God then prophesied to the congregation and declared people free from their various afflictions in the name of Jesus Christ after which he ministered mass prayer. This was followed by the Prayer Line and Testimonies galore which glorified God; a few of which are below: 






When Dr Akhiwu Benjamin, an Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon, and his wife Helen, a Pediatric doctor, decided to become partners of Emmanuel TV five years ago, it was simply to support God’s projects. Little did they know that they were actually sowing a seed whose fruit would amaze and shock even the most hard-core believers.

They came to testify to the goodness of God in their lives saying, since they joined as Emmanuel TV Partners, they have enjoyed abundant blessings both spiritually and physically. Dr Benjamin said being an Emmanuel TV Partner has given him an atmosphere of peace, protection, contentment and living in abundance.

He said that as a result, his family has found itself under the cover of God where all their needs and protection are guaranteed. He said his career and that of his wife, have enjoyed growth while the performance of their children at school has been astronomical.

Dr Benjamin, who lives in Kano, gave one of his many experiences where God has saved his life from imminent death. One day, he said, he had travelled to another state. On his way back, as he drove his Jeep in a convoy of other private cars, he saw masked men appear from the roadside bushes brandishing guns. They started shooting at all vehicles. While bullet-holes appeared on other cars, none appeared to have hit his vehicle and yet, the armed men were shooting directly at him from a short distance. He had anointed his car with the Anointing Water that morning and it had a shield of five Anointing Stickers all over it!

He said that the Anointing Water was also in the car and that at the time of the attack, he was listening to a sermon from Prophet T.B. Joshua titled: Leave It For God. A force from nowhere forced him out of the car and told him to run away. As he ran from the car, the gunmen kept firing after him but, incredibly, none of the bullets hit him. As he entered the bush, he ran into a beehive but it was as if the bees were confused and could not sting him.

 “It was as if I was in a bottle. Instead of attacking me, the bees were fleeing away,” said Dr Benjamin. After two hours, he came out of the bush and found the police guarding his car, having ambushed the armed robbers. The other people that were left on the road had been injured and the other vehicles were damaged. The police were astounded that not a single bullet had hit his car and that he was safe and sound. They asked which native doctor he had visited to receive such protection. He stuck his hand into his pocket and showed them the Anointing Sticker and Anointing Water. He told them that it was the power of God working through the Anointing Stickers and Anointing Water that had miraculously saved his life!

“I thank God for this opportunity to be a member of this ministry and to be a partner of Emmanuel TV,” he said.



Satan will use any bad habit, however innocent it may look, to destroy you in more than one aspect of your life. This was Miss Busisiwe Mgqibi’s message when she came to testify at The SCOAN on Sunday.

The South African mother-of-two said the problem of drunkenness which pestered her for 15 years, affected her finances, career, marital life, had almost cost her life. Born in a family where consuming alcohol was ‘normal’, Miss Mgqibi was already taking hard alcohol at age 16 and, she said, it was as a result of partying that she dropped out from university after failing

her examinations due to lack of concentration.Image

“I had to find a job quickly to earn money for my drinking sprees. I liked expensive beer. As a result of clubbing, I could not settle and commit to one man. This led me into many different relationships which has left me with two children from different fathers,” she said.

Soon, she discovered she could no longer finance her drinking and she started to take loans from individuals and institutions to sustain her sprees. Meanwhile, she had no time for her children and she would sleep out over weekends. She tried to stop but couldn’t. One day, her landlord threatened to throw her out due to non-payment of rentals. She visited a friend from whom she frequently borrowed money. Instead of giving her cash, she gave her a small bottle half-full with clear water.

“She told me it was Anointing Water from The SCOAN and that she was giving it to me as a gift to solve my problems,” she said.

She prayed and ministered it in Jesus’ name, asking God to break the terrible addiction to alcohol in her life.

“I have forgotten to drink alcohol for the past nine months. I now have peace and joy. I am able to provide for my children and I have a fiancé. I now hate beer,” she said.

Not only is she now free from the addiction to drinking alcohol but her menstruation that had been irregular for years also started flowing normally. Her advice was: “Commit yourself to God in prayer and faith and He will answer you. If you have Emmanuel TV, you are half-way there.”




Mary Jane Moepeng from Botswana had been looking for admission to university for eight years since she finished school. She was not being accepted into any university she applied to, let alone being able to pay the required fees. When she came to The SCOAN, she met with Prophet T.B. Joshua. The moment she stepped into the man of God’s office, he told her that he saw that she wanted to go to school and gave her US$800 with the instruction to look for the best university in her country and use the money to pay for the registration fees.

He also gave her Anointing Water which she ministered on her admission documents and the documents she submitted to the government for scholarship. To her greatest surprise, she not only gained admission to one of the best universities in Botswana, she also received a scholarship from the government covering all her tuition fees. She explained that it was the first time the government had granted scholarships to people in her age-range; she was 26. She brought the admission letter and also her report with her results from her first year of studying Business Enterprises, showing that she received distinctions. Her testimony did not end there; she said that she and her husband had been trying to have a child for the past year. After returning from The SCOAN and ministering the Anointing Water in the name of Jesus Christ, they met as husband and wife and she got pregnant. The couple showed their baby boy named David to the glory of God!





Mrs Joy Kalu testified to her healing from a leg ulcer which was healed through the medium of the Anointing Water. She had severely suffered the affliction for five years during which her life turned upside down. She could not go to work or take good care of her children. She would spend the whole day at home, hopeless. Her husband was also very stressed as he had to take care of her. She came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water. She ministered it on her leg and also gave it to her nurse to minister it on her. Before she knew it, her leg started to dry up and new flesh started forming. Within no time, the fresh skin had covered where the ghastly wound once was.

“I am happy, overjoyed and excited! There is no longer any pain; I can do everything now!” She said and showed for all to see, the scarred area where the ulcer once was. Her advice was simple: “Believe the words of God’s prophets and you will be blessed and healed; every problem you have has an expiry date!”



Mrs James from Akwa-Ibom, Nigeria and her daughter, Godsgift came to testify to her healing from a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease she suffered for 15 years. Godsgift had been suffering from this sickness since birth. She had asthma attacks all the time. Mrs James would often be called from her office to collect her daughter from school due to the severity of the asthma attacks. Godsgift would come and ask, “Mummy, why is my case like this? Why am I not like everyone else?” They took her to teaching hospitals and private hospitals but the only help the doctors could render was for her to use a nebulizer (breathing machine).

She watched Emmanuel TV and her faith was lifted up. That prompted her to bring Godsgift to The SCOAN where she received prayer from one of the wise men.Image

After the prayer, she can now breathe normally and even recently played football in a competition. She no longer needs to use the nebulizer. Her medical reports showing the doctor’s diagnosis before and after the healing were shown. Truly, the Great Physician, Jesus Christ is alive.





Mrs Tshepo Olefhile from Botswana was working hard but did not have anything to show for it. “I would work as an elephant but eat as an ant,” she said. At the end of the month, she would get very stressed as she never had enough money to pay her bills. She had a poultry farm but at the end of the month, things would always go wrong with the business. Things got so bad that she had to sell her car. She came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water, ministered it, in Jesus’ name and prayed saying, “Since You used Moses to deliver the Israelites from Egypt, you can use Prophet T.B. Joshua to set me free and bless me.” After ministering the Anointing Water, she received financial breakthrough, her business turned around and with the turnover, she was able to purchase a car. She showed the picture of her new car.Image

Mrs Olefhile shared a second testimony concerning her daughter. She had applied to universities in Botswana to study medicine but was rejected as she was not qualified. However, Mrs Olefhile prayed in faith, believing that God would do the impossible. It happened according to her faith and her daughter received admission from one of the best universities in China to study medicine. Although her tuition fee was US$10,000 she told her daughter not to worry, that God would help them raise the money in time. She was able to raise the money through the power of God in the Anointing Water. Her daughter will now be travelling to China to start her course in medicine.

The service on Sunday ended with the Mass Prayer conducted by the Wise Men. We at The SCOAN, thank God for His everlasting faithfulness and power. He continues to manifest through His anointed ministers of God!

Emmanuel! God With Us!
