Posts Tagged ‘ANOINTING WATER’

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
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!

ANOINTING WATER PROPELS A TRUCK DRIVER TO COMPANY DIRECTOR
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.

GALL STONES REMOVED WITHOUT AN OPERATION!
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.

CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS CRUSHED BY PRAYER
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.

CHRONIC KNEE PAIN BANISHED THROUGH PRAYER
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!

30 YEAR YOKE OF BEDWETTING BROKEN!
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”.

TESTIMONIES

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!

FROM PAUPER TO PROPRIETOR

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.

“I SLEPT WITH 30 MEN A DAY…” – CONFESSIONS OF A DIABOLIC PROSTITUTE

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.”

 

DOUBLE BLESSING THROUGH ANOINTING WATER MINISTRATION
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!

 

 

INABILITY TO WALK SUCCUMBS TO THE POWER OF GOD

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)

DELIVERED FROM THE SPIRIT OF PORNOGRAPHY

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”.

TESTIMONIES

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!

MORNING WATER WASHES ADDICTION AWAY

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!

 

AFFLICTION OF ASTHMA ENDED

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!

 

FULL MOVEMENT RETURNS THROUGH THE MORNING WATER

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!

EMMANUEL!

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”.

 

TESTIMONIES

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.

 

BACK TO LIFE: RESURRECTION POWER AT WORK!Image

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!

 

SCROTUM CANCER PERMANENTLY ELIMINATED IN JESUS’ NAME

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 FINALLY BUILDS HIS OWN HOUSEImage
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. 

 

FAVOUR UPON FAVOUR FOR WOMAN OF FAITH

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.

 

WOMAN FRAUDSTER EXPOSED AFTER STEALING GOD’S MONEY

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!

 

JESUS STOPS SEVERE BLEEDING, SAVES BABY ‘EMMANUEL’!

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!

 

GENERATIONAL CURSE OF ARMED ROBBERY SMASHED!
Image
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.

 

HEALED OF DIABETES THROUGH WATCHING EMMANUEL TV

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

ImageThe mighty power of God manifesting itself through healings, deliverance and prophecy, was witnessed at The SCOAN’S last Sunday service broadcast live via Emmanuel TV. Thousands of worshippers from all over the world, who gathered at the church’s headquarters in Lagos, witnessed the power of Christ in action right from the Prayer Line when God Almighty delivered and healed people through the faculties of the wise men. Demons were commanded down to their knees and cast out, in the name of Jesus Christ. Those who came with addictions, afflictions and sicknesses, were declared healed and free Imagethrough the power of the Holy Spirit. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, prophesied to the congregation to the glory of the living God. He also drew attention to the day’s message delivered earlier on by Wise Man Christopher entitled: We Need The Corresponding Power. The man of God said the real thing about being a Christian is not ‘the work we do, but the relationship we maintain with God and the atmosphere produced by that relationship’. He said the message, which was drawn from the Acts of the Apostles Chapter 1:4-8, is a clear demonstration that Christians need support from Heaven just as the Lord, Jesus Christ had promised His Apostles the Holy Spirit before they could embark on their commission. He underscored the crux of the message, saying ‘to believe God, is to be under the power of the Holy Spirit’. Prophet T.B. Joshua said: “A proper relationship with God will bring a proper atmosphere.” As is always the case, the service was laced with amazing testimonies from people who had witnessed the touch of the Almighty God in various aspects of their lives. Here are a selected few. Stay blessed:

 

PASTOR SET FREE FROM ILLICIT ADDICTIONS AFTER 46 YEARS

Fourty-six years can be a life time. To have a stubborn addiction that ravages you for all those years, can therefore be as depressing as it is torturous. Such was the case with a minister of God, Reverend Bones Asamaowel, who suffered an addiction to smoking marijuana and drinking alcohol for 46 years.Image

The 57 year-old cleric told the congregation and viewers of Emmanuel TV that the problem started when he was ten years old and in school. He said that the problem severely affected his behaviour to the extent that he was at one point expelled from school.

He later went to continue with his education in the United States of America. Unfortunately, his addiction to taking the substances persisted.

“It became worse. I would go to clubs for partying and drinking,” he said.

He attended a Bible college and was ordained as a reverend. Despite being ordained, he could not cast out the addiction but continued to smoke and drink. At church he would stifle the urge. At home, he would relent by temporarily secluding himself from family and friends to smoke and drink secretly.

“My family has suffered. From the church ceremony, I would go to the backyard to smoke,” said the Reverend.

He said as a pastor, he ministered in many churches both in the US and Nigeria, but continued smoke, drink and party. Desperate for a way out, he came to The SCOAN on July 21 where he received the Anointing Water. He ministered it on himself in the name of Jesus Christ and from that day, Reverend Asamaowel no longer has an urge to smoking the prohibited substance let alone drinking alcohol!

Testifying in the company of his wife and two children, he told the congregation that the Anointing Water had completely washed out the addiction and he is now a free man, delivered from the chains of the devil.

“People have tested me. Those who have known me for my addiction have brought beer to my face and made me sniff but I can no longer stand the smell,” he said.

Reverend Asamaowel said he now preaches the Gospel and is more effective in his ministry. “For two months now I have not smoked anything and drunk no alcohol. I thank God. I am now free,” he said.

The happiest was probably his wife who exclaimed: “I now have a new husband and a good home. My husband can now eat the food I prepare.”

Reverend and wife thanked God for setting them free and advised everybody to believe and trust in the Lord Jesus saying, when the Son of God sets you free, you are free indeed.

 

MIRACULOUSLY SAVED FROM CAR ACCIDENT

Also testifying on Sunday, were Mr and Mrs Mutengo Mark from Chingola in Zambia. They came to The SCOAN to share their joy over how God saved them from what would have been a fatal car accident through the medium of the Anointing Water and the Anointing Sticker.

ImageOn August 11, the family had prepared to go to their daughter’s wedding. Before getting into their car, they prayed and ministered the Anointing Water on themselves and on the car. In total, there were nine people traveling in the car. While they were on their way, narrated Mr Mark, they heard a large explosion. The car lost control, flew into the air and somersaulted four times before it landed on the opposite side of the road, facing the wrong direction and sitting on its roof.

“Everyone in the car, including my wife, was crying for help. The doors were locked and I could hear my wife yelling for help,” he said.

Somehow, Mr Mutengo helped his wife climb out the window. He then released his seatbelt and also climbed out the window. But their 13 year-old daughter was missing. Mrs Mutengo started to call out her name, thinking she was trapped somewhere in the wreck. To the amazement of all and onlookers, the little girl was safely standing about 10 metres from the scene of the accident, unhurt and on her own feet.

“We don’t know how our daughter came out of the vehicle and survived the crash! God must have sent His angels who saved our daughter, thanks to His power which we experienced through the medium of the Anointing Water,” he said.

Those that had minor injuries including Mr and Mrs Mutengo, were rushed to hospital where they received treatment as out-patients. Everyone went home and continued to minister the bruises with the Anointing Water, in Jesus’ name and they received their complete and total healing. They told the congregation and viewers not to underestimate God’s power in the Anointing Water.

 

DRY BONES RISE AGAIN, WALK!

Mrs Elizabeth Oyeronke Adebomi is a teacher by profession and came to The SCOAN to glorify God with her wonderful testimony of what God Almighty has done for her. Her testimony started with a replay of a footage taken seven years ago at The SCOAN.

In the replay, the then 40 year-old woman was seen helplessly and painfully sitting in a car, unable to walk due to multiple fractures to her right leg. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, walked over, listened to her plight and, calling on the power of the Holy Spirit; he prayed for her and she was instantly healed, in the name of Jesus Christ. As she walked, taking one step after another, her husband could not help but roll on the ground in joy.

ImageFast-forward to last Sunday: Mrs Adebomi told a story of horror; a tale of how one morning, while driving her car to work, she suddenly found herself looking death in the eye in a head on car collision. As a result of the impact, the car doors were jammed and she found herself trapped inside.

Rescuers rushed to the scene of the accident and managed to pry open the car doors. Mrs Elizabeth was pulled out and rushed to hospital. While there, she had no feeling in her right leg. It felt dead. The doctors said she had a fracture of the right patella and advised her to undergo an operation.

She was hesitant and refused to go under the knife. Instead, she visited many other hospitals but to no avail. Everything in her life came to a standstill. She could no longer go to work nor take care of her family. It was the husband who now had to do domestic chores including taking care of their two year-old daughter. By God’s grace, her husband brought her to The SCOAN where Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for at the Prayer Line in the powerful name of Jesus Christ. Following the prayer, Mrs Elizabeth Oyeronke Adebomi walked for the glory of God, without any pain or discomfort – all bones brought back to life!

Mrs Elizabeth testified to the congregation that, since that time, she has been able to carry out all responsibilities she could not following the accident.

“It was like a dream when the Prophet prayed for me. My dead legs started to move. I resumed work two weeks later. It is now seven years. I now walk and drive my car like before,” Mrs Adebomi said.

Confirming the testimony, Mr Adebomi said, referring to how he shared the suffering: “You don’t know what it means to abandon your job to take care of a family including a little baby.”

Together, they thanked God for the healing that has brought joy back to their home.

 

POVERTY BANISHED THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

To shoppers at Kitwe in Zambia, the name Tenson & Sons General Dealers may not conjure many memories despite being a one stop-shop for all hardware and electronic equipment. But there is an amazing story to this investment. It is a fruit of faith in God and His work to set His children free from the evil spirits of poverty, thanks to the medium of the Anointing Water through which He continues to work.Image

Just three years ago, the owner, Mr Tenson, was synonymous to poverty. There was nothing he could lay his hands on that would bear fruit. He had tried to run a small hawker, but he would have too little if nothing, to show for all his labour.

Agitated, he decided in 2011 to come to The SCOAN looking for a breakthrough. By the grace of God, he received the Anointing Water and, back home; he ministered it to himself and his shop, in Jesus’ name. Behold, soon after that, God Almighty opened doors for him and he was blessed with a thriving business. He now has three houses and two big shops in different areas under the trademark – Tenson & Sons General Dealers. What more, God has blessed him with a BMW car all through the medium of the Anointing Water. 

“I am here to bear testimony and to thank God for blessing me this much,” he said, showing pictures of his shops and expensive car.

 

OXFORD GRADUATE RECEIVES 10,000 POUND SCHOLARSHIP FROM PROPHET T.B. JOSHUA

ImageMr Hngshin Daramy-Williams, born in Sierra Leone but living in the UK, explained how he came from a humble family of six children. Growing up, life was a struggle because although the children in his family were all gifted in many ways, they did not have the financial means to support them. He was gifted intellectually and studied Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) at Oxford University in the United Kingdom.

Despite his intellectual brilliance, the financial situation of his family forced him to depend on loans throughout his undergraduate degree at Oxford. He passed his first year exams with distinction but in his third year, before his final exams, he suffered a massive mental breakdown. He experienced panic attacks and a lot of self doubt where he could not even look at past exam papers; all this including the financial strain took a large toll on his mental state. He had severe depression and suicidal thoughts.

During this time, his mother came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water which she ministered on him, believing that he would be restored. By the grace of God, he managed to complete his final exams. He thought he had failed but to his joy and amazement, he graduated with a 2:1 (Second class upper) in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford University.

Now free from the depression and no longer suffering from suicidal thoughts, he applied and gained admission to the University of Leeds in the United Kingdom, to study MSC in Economics. He calculated everything and he would need to acquire 9440 pounds in order to complete his Masters degree at the University of Leeds. He explained that he did not want to apply for more loans as this had contributed to his mental breakdown and was here to appeal to God for help to continue his education and focus on his future.

Upon listening to his case, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave him 10,000 pounds to complete his Masters in Economics from the University of Leeds. This is approximately US $16,000.

The man of God advised the congregation and viewers around the world saying, “The value of money is to change lives, change nations and to change the world. This is the reason why God blessed you. God blessed you to change the world and God blessed you to change nations,” said the Prophet.

 

HEART PROBLEM STOPPED THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

Last year, Mrs Binta Ahmed Musa escorted her husband to Egypt for his medical treatment. While there, she was encouraged to go for her own check-up and it was confirmed that she had a severe, life-threatening heart problem. She was not getting enough blood to her heart and her blood vessels were blocked. This resulted in a very weak heart.  She was advised by the doctor to go for an immediate operation which would cost $12,000.  She could not afford such kind of money.

Back in Nigeria, she went to a doctor who also advised her to go for an operation but again, she could not afford it. She cried to friends and relatives about her predicament. One day her daughter advised her to go to The SCOAN.Image

After seeking the opinion of her religious leaders, she came to The SCOAN and was arranged at the Prayer Line. By the grace of God, she received the Anointing Water and ministered it to herself, in Jesus’ name. After the ministration, she started noticing changes in her body. She started to climb stairs, a daunting task she could not do before, due to her condition.

After being encouraged by changes in her body, she went back to the doctor in Nigeria. The checkup showed that everything was normal but the doctor could not readily accept the verdict. He advised Mrs Musa to go back to Egypt for further tests.

Mrs Musa went back to Egypt for another examination. The doctor was equally surprised and could not believe the results because everything had returned to normal. The doctor asked her if her blood vessels – which had been blocked during the first examination – had been operated on. She gave an emphatic, “No”. The doctor prepared her for theatre and carried out further tests. He was very surprised at the fresh results, saying there wasn’t any sign of a heart problem. In fact, he told her, she had a very good heart.

Such was Mrs Musa’s miraculous healing that she decided to come to The SCOAN to thank God for her healing that came free of charge but by the precious blood of Jesus Christ through the medium of the Anointing Water. She brought with her the before-and-after medical reports proving that God Almighty had indeed healed her of the life-threatening problem.

 

BUS DRIVER, 28 PASSENGERS SURVIVE TERRIBLE ACCIDENT

Mr Balo Boy is a bus driver and owner of a bus company in Botswana. On August 12, 2012 he was travelling to Francis town with 28 passengers onboard. Before he left, that morning, he ministered the Anointing Water, in Jesus’ name and prayed for the protection of God on their journey. Mr Balo was driving the bus when suddenly, a car swerved to his side of the road and a terrible collision took place. To the glory of God, the bus did not somersault but stood amazingly still and he and all 28 passengers survived unharmed. Image

After the terrible accident, the bus was left severely damaged and Mr Balo Boy was very sad. He wanted to give up the business when, one night in a dream, a man dressed in white told him not to give up, that he should not be discouraged. After that dream, he got two brand new buses! He later received a call from the land authorities advising him that he had been allocated a piece of land for his residence. Praise God!

The Sunday Live service carried on into the night with God delivering His people from evil afflictions through the faculties of the wise men. The prophetic and awe-inspiring service ended with a Mass Prayer. As the grace was said, all the congregation rejoiced remembering the prayer point from earlier on in the service given by Prophet T.B. Joshua: ‘Visit me Lord and declare me free!’ Truly, they had been visited by Jesus Christ and declared free.

The Sunday service was not only spiritually inspiring but also turned out to be an historical event when Prophet T.B. Joshua was decorated with the prestigious award of Ambassador of Peace by the Arewa Youth Forum, an umbrella body for youth organizations in Northern Nigeria. It started with the Prayer Line where people of all walks of life from all over the world, were prayed for by the wise men. Healing and deliverance, in Jesus’ name took place and everyone felt the touch of the power of the Holy Spirit. Scores of people came with their faith-inspiring testimonies although not all had the chance to express their amazement at the works of God, due to time constraints. The testimonies demonstrated how the great power of God is working through the mediums of Anointing Water, Emmanuel TV, the Men of God and Anointing Stickers.

The man of God Prophet T.B. Joshua prophetically taught about love, saying there are two loves: The kind of love that sees beyond hatred, the love that sees beyond intimidation and the love that sees beyond rejection. “When you are rejected, you love. When you love, you will not want to see your neighbour on the street, dying for food. Love first because God is love. You cannot heal if you don’t love. If you don’t love, you will likely heal your friend and leave your enemy. When you don’t love, you cannot be given the grace to deliver people from trouble. You will likely deliver your friend and leave your enemy to die,” he preached. He ended by advising his listeners that, “Only love can take you to where you are going”.

T.B. JOSHUA RECEIVES AMBASSADOR OF PEACE AWARD
Prior to his message, the Prophet accepted the award which was presented to him by the delegation of the Executive Members of the Arewa Youth Forum which was led by its president Alhaji Gambo I. Gujungu and included senior representatives from all states in the region. AREWA 2

National Director of Public Affairs, Arewa Youth Forum, Benue, Nigeria, Bello Abdulhamid, said they came to The SCOAN because of love which the man of God has always demonstrated irrespective of barriers of race, religion, creed or ethnicity. Speaking on behalf of the northern states of Nigeria, he said that Kaduna, Yobe, Plateau, Kano and Jigawa States are all beneficiaries of the trailers of rice that Prophet T.B. Joshua sends.
He said, “Prophet T.B. Joshua is a man with phenomenal vision. He shows a deep sense of compassion and unconditional love. Prophet T.B. Joshua is a blessing not only to us in Nigeria but also the international community. Prophet T.B. Joshua is the very first man of God that we are visiting and honouring. Our independent assessment has shown that The SCOAN has been committed to provide not only for the spiritual but also for the physical wellbeing of people”.
AREWA 1
Addressing his nation, he said, “Fellow Nigerians, we are here because of the love we see in the life of Prophet T.B. Joshua. We need love to come together as a nation. Where there is love, there is no killing, stealing or destruction. Where there is love, there is no segregation. Love is the solution to our problems in Nigeria”.
The National President of the Arewa Youth Forum, Alhaji Ibrahim Gambo, said that they have picked Prophet T.B. Joshua as a leader to bring back the lost love in Nigeria.
Isa Kurgui, the National Vice President, North-Central, Arewa Youth Forum said that in a society where there is love, you can sleep without locking your door, you can go anywhere without fear. He concluded by saying that from that day henceforth, Prophet T.B. Joshua was the Grand Patron of Northern Nigerian Youths.

The congregation rose to their feet clapping as Prophet T.B. Joshua was presented with the award as Philanthropist Par Excellence Ambassador of Peace.

Standing side by side with them, the Prophet explained to the world his reason for accepting this award during the live service. He said, “I will receive this award in order to join them to bring peace to some troubled spots in our nation, Nigeria”.

EVANGELIST BILL SUBRITZKY FROM DOVE MINISTRIES, NEW ZEALAND VISITS THE SCOAN

EVANG

Bill Subritzky, a renowned healing and deliverance evangelist in his eighties from Dove ministries, New Zealand came to acknowledge the goodness of God through the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua. Evangelist Subritzky told the congregation and viewers worldwide that he had travelled to many countries and had many crusades but when he saw what was happening at The SCOAN, he was astounded. EVANG 2 He testified that after Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for him, he saw a radical transformation in his ministry and has since then being spreading the good news of the mighty power of God working through the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua.

FROM GRASS TO GRACE

Have you ever gone for an interview where the interviewer ended up answering questions for you? Well, it just happened to Mr Ukeme Essien, a well qualified technician in oil processing from Nigeria, thanks to the power of Jesus Christ through the medium of the Anointing Water.

Mr Essien had no permanent job and for six years after his training in the field, found himself moving around aimlessly and teaching in secondary schools, earning a meager salary of N8,000. The money was not even enough to cover his transport costs.

One day, he came to The SCOAN, received the Anointing Water and ministered it in prayer in Jesus’ name. The following morning, he received a call from an overseas oil company he had previously been courting but to no success, saying that they wanted to see him for an interview in the United Arab Emirates. About 35 people were invited from all over the world for this interview and he was one of only two Africans to have been invited.
“They covered all my expenses including air tickets and visa costs,” Mr Essien told the congregation.

At the interview, while waiting for his name to be called, he excused himself to the restroom where he prayed and ministered the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name. He prayed to God that he be asked no questions whose answer he did not know and that if any such questions came, they be answered for him.

When he entered the interview room, the whole panel started to smile at him and, behold, he knew all the answers. The only question he did not prepare for was when one of the directors asked why he wanted a job with the company, a question they answered for him as they hired him and made him a Field Services Foreman for the Abu Dhabi-based oil film earning millions and with an entitlement to a new car every two years.

Mr Essien concluded by saying, “Today, I have realized that Jesus is indeed alive and he has worked in my life through this medium of the Anointing Water.”

KIDNEY STONES DISSOLVED
Mr Obi Patrick Chinedu from Nigeria was short of words to express his awe at the miraculous healing he received from God through the medium of the Anointing Water he received at The SCOAN three years previously.

OBI
A small-scale businessman in his home-town, Mr Chinedu had suddenly found himself under an affliction of a strange disease that came with general body pains, a swollen leg and hypertension. People started to speculate that he was actually suffering from HIV/AIDS and was hiding the truth. They started to avoid him but that was not his only nightmare; he started to dream about being chased by giant men, masquerades, lions and other frightful creatures.

It was after some years that a thorough diagnosis at a government hospital established that he had kidney stones. It was then that his friends and neighbors started to suggest that he travelled to The SCOAN, here in Lagos, to seek God’s healing touch. He was reluctant because, according to him, he had been one of the people in his area that used to spread negative and false rumours about The Synagogue and Prophet T.B. Joshua.

But the pain in him was too excruciating to ignore that he decided to swallow his pride and visit the very place he had castigated. He came to SCOAN in 2010 after over nine years of suffering and patronizing shrines in search of a miracle. He was one of the many visitors that were prayed for. He also had the privileged of receiving the Anointing Water. When he got home, he prayed with it and ministered some in his mouth, in Jesus’ name.
For the first time in ten years, he had a peaceful and nightmare-free night. He started to notice changes in his body. The pain disappeared; he was able to eat well and started to walk around without support.

“That morning I finished my breakfast and asked people to prepare for me something real to eat. They could not believe it,” he said.

A few weeks later, Mr Chinedu decided to go back to the same hospital for a test. To the doctor’s greatest surprise, the test showed that he no longer had any kidney stones. At last, free from his affliction, he was back to his feet – a healthy and strong man.
“My advice; do not attack what you do not understand. I am stupefied because I received God’s healings in the name Jesus Christ from the same servant of God I had ridiculed for many years. Good thing is that my healing has changed the perception of people in my area about the SCOAN. Thank you Jesus!” He said, with an encouraging word to people to get their own Anointing Water for use in Jesus’ name.

PROMOTION AFTER 22 YEARS
Imagine working for 22 years without a promotion! As unimaginable as it may sound, this was the case with Mr Muzenge Hachizibe from Copperbelt, Zambia.
MUZENGA
Mr Hachizibe had worked for the Ministry of Home Affairs in his home country for all those years as a criminal investigator at the rank of a sergeant but with no recognition for all his contributions.

New recruits would join his department and he would train them, only to see them pass him by to higher ranks. Such stagnation, he said, was humiliating to him and his family.
“They would be given better salaries and bigger official houses. It brought shame on my family,” he said.

In desperation, he went to many places in search of solution, including witch doctors but there was no answer to his lack of promotion.
Finally, he came across Emmanuel TV where he saw God work through Prophet T.B. Joshua and the wise men, in Jesus’ name. He was so convinced that his solution was at The SCOAN that he secured a bank loan of US$2,000 to come to The SCOAN.

He arrived at the church, obtained the Anointing Water and returned home to pray and minister it in Jesus’ name. One month later, he received a promotion!
He is now a Detective Inspector with the Zambian Police. He brought his promotion letter to The SCOAN to share his testimony with the children of God.
“It does not work to look for solution in places other than Jesus Christ,” he said.

“GOD, THIS IS TOO MUCH!”

The Almighty God, indeed, has no limits to His goodness in people’s lives. The Bible is crystal clear as it states that all gold and silver belong to Him. Maria Teressa Mbani Modo, originally from Equatorial Guinea but now staying in Spain, had always been aware of this piece of Scripture but never at any point in her life did she ever imagine how far God would go to bless His people.MARIA

She visited The SCOAN a few years ago with the problem of poverty and lack of progress in life. She received the Anointing Water and went back to Spain where she prayed and ministered it in Jesus’ name. Immediately after that, she received a promotion at her work place to deputy manager of a Swiss-owned transit company and a salary increase!

She came back to The SCOAN to testify to the goodness of God in her life and during her stay, received a call from her bank that a loan she had applied for had finally been approved.
“I could not believe it,” she said, in tears of joy.

She came back to The SCOAN a third time to give her testimony as an acknowledgement of God for His faithfulness while nursing an ambition to buy a house in Spain.
Just after arriving at The SCOAN, her estate agent called her from Spain that there was a newly-built house with a swimming pool available and selling at a reduced price. She was overjoyed since she was not even looking for a new house but just a normal house.
That was how Miss Modo became an owner of a spacious apartment with a swimming pool to boot in the beautiful costal province of Valencia in Spain. And that was not it, with the money she was now earning in her new job, she was able to buy a bus for her mother as a substantial financial earner.

She exclaimed in front of the congregants: “God, this is too much!” At only 29 years old, God has blessed her so much through the medium of the Anointing Water that she is not only the owner of a new house now, but she has also opened her own company and has acquired a lot of land.

Sunday 23rd June 2013 was an extraordinary day at The SCOAN because it registered the landmark for the global extension of the project Prophet T.B. Joshua introduced during his 50th birthday celebrations – the employment, empowerment and educational campaign.PROPHET T B JOSHUA The project tallies with the slogan of Emmanuel TV – Changing Lives, Changing Nations and Changing the World. The service began with the prayer line where multitudes received healing and deliverance, followed by a time of testimonies. Here are just a few of those who shared their testimonies with the world:

 

MAKING IMPOSSIBILITIES POSSIBLE

Mrs Hope Okeke, Anambra, Nigeria, came to The SCOAN in a wheelchair with a debilitating problem of inability to walk due to severe arthritis for two years. She had pain all over her body during those years and was unable to do any work.MRS HOPE OKEKE [ WHEEL CHAIR LADY] She had visited many hospitals and herbalists in search of a solution but to no avail. Because of her confinement to a wheelchair her children had to be available at all times, to help with her business and her daily chores. She watched Emmanuel TV in her home and had seen how God is using the faculties of Prophet T.B. Joshua to bring solution to thousands of people whose situations were even worse than her own. This encouraged her to come to The SCOAN to receive her healing.

 

While she was inside her car praying and hoping that God would discover her, one of her sons came into the church and cried out to Prophet T.B. Joshua, announcing her condition. Prophet T.B. Joshua asked for her to be wheeled into the church and three visitors were asked to minister the New Anointing Water to her, in the name of Jesus Christ. As they ministered the New Anointing Water in Jesus’ name, her countenance changed and her eyes seemed to look into the distance. Moments later, she rose up and walked immediately!MRS HOPE OKEKE [ WHEEL CHAIR LADY] 2 Mrs Okeke testified that ever since her healing, she had been walking freely and without any pain. Truly, she encountered Jesus Christ, the Miracle Worker and her impossibilities became possible to the glory of God!

 

KIDNEY STONES FLUSHED OUT THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

Mr Jeff Motsetsi, a teacher by profession, from Botswana, was diagnosed with kidney stones in 2009. This caused him unbearable pain and made him unable to perform his duties as a teacher. He had consulted the best medical professionals and had been administered various drugs but his condition only got worse. Traditional therapy had been taken by him to no avail.

MR JEFF MOTSETSI [KIDNEY STONES ]

In 2011, he was privileged to come to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water. He went home and one day he was relaxing outside and enjoying the cool breeze when he experienced an excruciating pain caused by the kidney stones.

 

In desperation, he remembered that he had the Anointing Water with him. He managed to drag himself into the house and reached for the Anointing Water and added a little to a cup of ordinary drinking water. He then drank it, praying in faith that God would flush out the kidney stones from his system once and for all.

 

The next morning, when he went to the toilet, he passed out the kidney stones in his urine to his amazement. He had gone to many hospitals to no avail but with the Anointing Water, the kidney stones were urinated out.MR JEFF MOSES [KIDNEY STONES ] 2

 

He displayed his ‘before and after’ healing medical reports and also showed the actual kidney stones that he had urinated out, to the glory of God. His active lifestyle is now restored and he is completely free from pain or discomfort. His advice was that we should not underrate the Anointing Water because it is an “atomic bomb” that will flush out whatever is not of Jesus in us.

 

TUMOUR THE SIZE OF A BASEBALL MIRACULOUSLY DETACHED

Lemlem Kasa from the USA, shared an extraordinary testimony of the healing power of Jesus Christ through the Anointing Water. She had a huge tumour in her uterus, the size of a human head.

LEMLEM KASA [TUMOUR IN UTERUS]

She had gone to many hospitals and the doctors told her that the only remedy was to remove her womb through an operation. She watched Emmanuel TV, saw the miracles and was encouraged and convinced that her own case would not escape the anointing of God.

 

She came to The SCOAN, received the Anointing Water and returned back to the USA, believing that the end of her problem had come. After ministering the Anointing Water, in Jesus’ name, she had a dream and saw herself in an operating theatre where the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua was preparing to perform a spiritual operation on her.

 

In that dream, Prophet T.B. Joshua, working as the head surgeon, asked one of the wise men to give him a scalpel with which he cut open her uterus, removed the tumour and threw it away. After the dream, she went back to the hospital and when they examined her, to their great surprise, the tumour had detached itself from the uterus making it easy for them to simply evacuate it.

 

She showed a photo of herself with a huge swollen stomach at the time she had the tumour. Now, she is healthy and strong. She thanked Jesus Christ for restoring her life.

 

JESUS’ GREAT DESIGN

Quoting Matthew 5:44, Prophet T.B. Joshua began his message by saying, “It was Jesus’ great design to engage His disciples to love one another.” He reminded people of the words of Apostle Paul in Galatians 5:6, explaining, “Without faith working by love, all else is worthless. Faith, where it is true, genuine, real and authentic, is a working grace; it works by love. Love does not intimidate; love does not condemn.”

 

Talking on the need to let love lead, he said, “We should be known by our love, regardless of religious, ethnic or social background. If you love your neighbour, you will be interested in his welfare.” He spoke practically on the need to see beyond religion or denomination when it comes to showing love and compassion to people. “The medical doctor you go to for a medical check-up and other health issues – you do not mind the faith they belong to as long as they are specialists. The company where you are working, you do not mind who is the chairman and the owner of the company. That is where you earn your livelihood with which you maintain your family, send your children to school and pay tithe in your church. You do not mind the faith he or she belongs to or their religious background. Talking of your education, you never mind the religion or faith your lecturer or teacher belongs to so far as he meets the needs of your education.”

 

THE MBA TOUR PARTNERS WITH EMMANUEL TV

In line with Prophet T.B. Joshua’s newly launched initiative to assist graduates with employment, a wonderful development has taken place! The MBA Tour, an international event organised to link prospective students with top level business administrative educational institutions around the world, have partnered with Emmanuel TV.

HANNAH ACQUAH [MBA TOUR REPRESENTATIVE]

The West African representative of the MBA Tour, Hannah Bertilla Acquah came to The SCOAN to officially announce the unique partnership. She said, “The MBA Tour is here to officially partner with Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV. Our partnership is based on our mutual commitment to nation building through skills development for the young and corresponds with the man of God’s current project of assisting graduates with employment.

 

“Our partnership will enable African students who demonstrate outstanding potential, access to Fellowships at the world’s top business schools and academic institutions – including: Columbia Business School; Harvard Business School; MIT Sloan School of Management; Yale School of Management; IE University, Spain; Erasmus University, The Netherlands; INSEAD Business School, France.

 

“Representatives from these renowned institutions will identify the qualifying students and Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV will assist with financial scholarships.”

 

The MBA Tour which is just one of the hundreds of organisations across the world that have indicated interest in partnering with Emmanuel TV to see to the actualisation of the campaign. Talking about the need to commit resources into such charitable ventures, Prophet T.B. Joshua asked, “What is the value of money but to change lives, change nations and change the world”. He further added that “Our tomorrow should be better than our today.”
