On April 16th 2016, the nation, Ecuador was hit by a colossal earthquake of magnitude 7.8. The severity of the disaster reverberated throughout the entire country, leaving at least 500 dead and 27,500 injured. Moved by the plight of Ecuadorians, T.B. Joshua –  Founder of Emmanuel TV – sent a relief team to Esmeraldas Province, Ecuador and dispatched a Boeing 727 Cargo Plane, which contained 20 tons of relief hygiene materials, perishable, and non-perishable food stuff.

The Armed Forces of Ecuador loaded the aid into army trucks and transported to the Emmanuel TV Operations Center, situated close to Esmeraldas City. The supplies were offloaded, repackaged, and distributed to various shelter camps in the Esmeraldas Province.

In response to this particular community’s needs, the Team supplied the community with equipment that converts river and unclean water into potable water. The Team is also undergoing a school construction project – at a cost of US$262,000 – to rebuild the entire school complex that was destroyed. The reconstructed school will provide learning facilities for 350 students.

A grateful beneficiary, from the Chachi community, said: “This is the first aid we have received from another country”. The relief efforts have aided over 5,000 Ecuadorians, totalling over half a million US Dollars.

The SCOAN Sunday Service of 31st July, 2016 was a special package from the Holy Spirit. From the songs of the choir to the wonderful testimonies, the presence of God was demonstrated beyond doubt. Congregants had the opportunity to watch clips of the Morning Water ministration during the just concluded South Korea, 2016 Pastors’ Conference with Prophet T.B. Joshua. They witnessed the power of God at work, breaking yokes, healing different kinds of ailments and delivering souls from the captivity of satan.

EVANGELIST  EDWARDEvangelist Edward animated the atmosphere with evangelical zest when he delivered his edifying message titled LEARN OBEDIENCE. He reminded Christians that whenever they are faced with challenging situations, they always have two options. One is to act from their own human frailties or to obey and abide by the Spirit of God: “But in the moment of decision, you are presented with two options: to act out of character and react badly, emotionally or intellectually to the weight of your situation or to trust the Holy Spirit in the midst of your challenges and respond by the Spirit. You can choose to learn offence, anger and disobedience or you can choose to learn obedience to the will of God.”

Citing the sufferings of Christ and how He obeyed and abided by the will of His father, Evangelist Edward observed that a Christian’s character is shaped by the difficulties he encounters as he journeys through life with all its ups and downs: “The way a Christian’s character grows through obedience is by facing difficulties and dealing with problems. As a Christian, what you are going through serves a useful purpose: To form and strengthen your character and to prepare you for the eternal glory that lies ahead.”

He concluded by encouraging Christians to accept and embrace every difficult challenge as an opportunity to pass through God’s refinement process, stating that many have missed the glory ahead because of their refusal to accept the process: “Whatever situation you are passing through is an opportunity for you to learn obedience to the will of God. However, many of us are rejecting the process, the method, the very instrument God is using to refine us. This is why we remain as we are. That is why all we go through seems to be wasted. We will continue to repeat the test until we learn our lesson and pass it.”

THOUGH THE VISION TARRIED, GOD’S APPOINTED TIME CAME TO ME AT THE SCOAN

MISS CHIKODI NORAH IWUAfter failing her Bar Final exams at the Nigerian Law School, Abuja campus in 2015, Miss Chikodi Iwu realised that her failure was not ordinary. Recalling that her family had had a pedigree of backwardness and limitation in progress, the picture of what was going on became clearer to her. No one in her entire family had ever attained success academically. It took her eleven years to gain admission into university and after graduating, an evil tormenting spirit had vowed never to allow her to become a Barrister. That failure at the law school in 2015 became a sore point in her life as all subsequent efforts she made resulted in disappointment.

As soon as she started preparing for a resit of the exams, all those who supported her in the past abandoned her, thinking she was an incurable failure. She had to beg to be able to survive and faced serious accommodation problems. As the resit exams approached, she could not concentrate. Frustrated by different worries, she had to run to a pastor who was a staff of the Nigerian Law School in Abuja. The pastor revealed to her that her problem was from her village and advised her to visit The SCOAN, stressing that she doesn’t need to see the man of God in person before her situation would be turned around.

Visiting The SCOAN during a Sunday service, Chikodi witnessed God’s power as soon as Mass Prayer started. Immediately Prophet T.B Joshua raised his voice to lead prayer, Miss Iwu started screaming and shaking uncontrollably, attracting the attention of ushers who held her while the evil spirit spoke through her. The evil spirit confessed that it had wanted to kill her and destroy every good thing in her life, including her educational aspirations. Taking authority in the name of Jesus, the man of God commanded the evil spirit out of her. Delivered and redeemed from the oppression of the devil, Miss Iwu received two Good Morning Stickers from Prophet T.B. Joshua.

Wrapping the Good Morning Stickers around her writing pens, she returned to Abuja and unwrapped them as she sat for the exams. To God be the glory, after the exams, she came out in flying colours. Her results qualified her to be called to the Nigerian bar. A dream of eighteen years finally came to fruition after her encounter with the power of God at The SCOAN. Today, Miss Chikodi Iwu is addressed as Barrister Chikodi Iwu – a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria. Thanking God during her testimony, she told congregants that she is the first in her family to break the so-called jinx of attaining university level and graduating as a qualified lawyer. She promised to serve God diligently.

“GOD DESTROYED MY EVIL POWERS AND GAVE ME A NEW LIFE IN CHRIST”

Mr Ifeanyi was deep into fetish engagements right from his childhood days when he was twelve years old. His grandfather, a witch doctor initiated him into witchcraft when he took him to his shrine and instructed him never to allow the water in a particular pot get dry. Days later, his grandfather became ill and demanded to see his father in order to hand over the affairs of the dark arts to him. But when Ifeanyi’s father arrived at the hospital where the old man was ailing away, the old man denied him, saying he was not the one to take over the shrine from him.

When Ifeanyi arrived at the hospital, he met his grandmother, who on seeing him rushed to go and call the nurse. But while she left the hospital room, his grandfather had laid hands on his head – an act that sent cold shivers down his whole body. After that episode, he fell asleep only to be woken up by nurses later. He was asked to go home, unknown to him that his grandfather had passed on. But the laying of hands on his head meant a lot even though he did not know. When it became public knowledge that his grandfather was dead, a meeting of witchdoctors was convened to deliberate on their member’s burial. Before his corpse was buried, Ifeanyi was given white powder by the witchdoctors to administer on grandfather’s face.

MR IFEANYI ENYESIOBIAfter the burial, Ifeanyi continued to carry out the instructions the old man had given to him before he died. But he would soon be faced with a dilemma as his father insisted on destroying the shrine, saying it was the cause of the animosity between their family and people of the village. Ifeanyi’s father actually came with anointed oil which he handed over to his son to minister on the shrine before it would be destroyed. Unknown to his father, Ifeanyi had removed some fetish items from the shrine and had kept them in his own room.

Ifeanyi would go ahead to destroy the shrine as directed by his father. While digging to uproot some of the evil pots buried under the soil, a bird and smoke flew out from one of the pots. An enraged Ifeanyi told his father that he should be ready to face the consequences of that action. When the witchdoctors discovered that the shrine had been destroyed on the directive of Ifeanyi’s father, they afflicted him with poison and he died. After the death of his father, the witchdoctors regrouped and tried to retrieve a fetish staff from him. Ifeanyi would not be cowed into releasing the staff given to him by his late grandfather. His defiance attracted their wrath as they fought him through all sorts of demonic manipulations.

After undergoing all sorts of spiritual fortification in different shrines and through initiations, Ifeanyi managed to withstand the fetish battle between him and his enemies. On many occasions, the river goddess controlling one of the rivers where he was initiated would appear to him in dreams giving him evil counsel. She had told him what to do to become very powerful and had also given him a live fish to swallow. Ifeanyi eventually swallowed a live fish physically and later started carrying masquerades from village to village. He became so popular that people consulted him for spiritual help. Truck drivers consulted him for amulets to prevent robbery attacks and accidents on the road. Women who were desperate to marry also came and received ‘solution’.

All efforts to neutralise his evil powers through prayers proved abortive as he used some fetish items to cause heavy sleeping among the ‘prayer warriors’ whenever they gathered to pray against him. Ifeanyi became a very notorious witchdoctor that had many evil powers. He wore some around his waist while others were in different parts of his body. He continued to live with his evil powers, tormenting and oppressing people until a certain man appeared in his dream and kept telling him, “Son, follow me.” The man and his voice kept recurring to him in a mysterious dream-like experience until he found himself in Lagos at The SCOAN being bombarded by the Spirit of God in the Morning Water medium. The evangelist commanded the evil spirit in him to speak and it revealed so many horrible things it had done to Mr Ifeanyi’s life. Said it, among other things, “No man can bring him down. No masquerade in the land of the east can bring him down.” Through the power in the blood of Jesus, Mr Ifeanyi was brought down with his back on the floor while the evil spirit was cast out completely. During his testimony, a completely transformed Mr Ifeanyi said he has surrendered his life to Christ and will continue to be devoted to the Word of God. He advised people in the following words, “There is no other way; Jesus Christ is the way the truth and the life.”

LOST JOB RESTORED
For four years, Mr Acha Vincent Njeok was out of employment. The former IT Officer in the Cameroonian Ministry of Sports and Physical Education faced a lot of difficulties trying to keep body and soul together. In the midst of all the hardship, he had encountered a friend who just returned from Nigeria. He asked his friend if he had visited The SCOAN and went further to demand the Morning Water from him. His friend asked him to come over the next day. Getting to his friend’s house, they prayed together. Thereafter, his friend asked him to buy a bottle of mineral water so he could minister some drops of the Morning Water into it for him.

MR ACHA VINCENT  NJEOKAfter getting the bottle of mineral water, Mr Njeok received just three drops of the Morning Water into the beverage. With that, he continued to pray that his sacking should be reversed. In February this year, he was recalled to his place of work and entrusted with more responsibility as Chief of the Department of Maintenance. He was also recommended to travel to Europe for more training on the job. Thanking God for the restoration of his job, promotion and recommendation for foreign travel, Mr Njeok also testified to his healing from a strange and debilitating tumor (that had developed around his anal region) through the same Morning Water medium. “I advise viewers that if you have the Morning Water, you can do anything. With the Morning Water, you can cross the oceans by faith, in Jesus’ name!”, he said.

T.B.JOSHUAThe SCOAN Live Sunday Service of April 10, 2016 witnessed great exhortation of the Word aside from The SCOAN Choir’s choral counsel. Every song was tailored to suit a Scriptural purpose and remind congregants of their duties as Christians towards the world in which they live. The message of Evangelist Evelyn Joshua focused on THE IRONY OF FATE and reflected the essence of God in a man’s life. It also captured the intrigues involved in the Christian race which has never been a stroll in the park for anyone – not even for our Lord Jesus who had to die for our sake.

In the world today, mankind has endless wishes and desires to suit the philosophy of what a successful life means to them. Many desire to be leaders – the spokesmen in that gathering, the pastors in this congregation, the chairmen of that forum, the Managing Director of that company – endless wishes. But it is not mere wishful thinking that brings about a contented life; it is a rightful focus. So, on what are you focusing? When you focus on God in your decision making, you are prepared for tomorrow.”

MUMMYEvangelist Evelyn contended that it is only when our lives are focused on God that we are assured of a brighter tomorrow. But a brighter tomorrow is not without its own tests and trials that we must strive to overcome. We must endure, persevere and remain steadfast like great people of the Bible whose dependence on God paved the way for their eventual greatness: “If you carefully observe the lives of great men and women of faith, you will discover that their lives were centred on one thing – the Saviour first in mind. In all their steps, in every move they made, they were driven by Christ’s Spirit of hope, faith, patience, endurance, perseverance and forbearance for a better future. They had the right attitude to life by combining hard work with a quiet confidence in God, their source, for the future they desired not the one they feared”.

Evangelist Evelyn left the congregation to ponder over and derive inspiration from the following nugget: “The best are those who are destined for Heaven, those who internalise God and believe that the service of God is a thing of the mind. They are willing servants who do what the Lord puts in their mind to do. They mirror Christ; they are not swayed or moved by public attitude or opinion concerning what they believe. They are unique among the crowd”.

TESTIMONIES

DELIVERED FROM THE SNAKE PIT
Mrs Idowu Gambo Dennis did not get the best of parental upbringing – her parents separated when she was barely a year old. Her mother remarried but her father did not, in the spirit of love for his five children, of which she was the last. Her father’s sister ended up raising them while her father supported them financially. Young Idowu did not see her mother again until she was fourteen. They planned for Idowu to attend school in Kaduna with her mother, however the plan fell through and she ended up spending just one school term there.

MRS IDOWU GAMBO DENNIS [DELIVERED FROM THE SPIRIT OF SNAKE]Her progress as a growing child was very unstable as she moved from place to place because of a faulty home front. At age 18, she met a man who wanted to marry her – a married man with four wives who did everything possible to entice her. Even her parents who were tormented by poverty tried to convince her to marry the man who was 30 years older than her. Despite the fact that she found it unthinkable to marry a man old enough to be her father, she ended up sleeping with him before finally making an escape from him.

As Idowu was growing older, she never had the slightest inkling that she was possessed until she reached the age of 34. She discovered that her dreams were dominated by snakes and she always felt a crawling sensation in her back. Her inter-personal relationships were also affected by the evil spirits that were working against her. She experienced so much hatred from people who called themselves her friends. Disappointments trailed her wherever she went and people who borrowed money from her refused to pay her back. One day while working in a hospital in the United States, she peeped into a ward only for a patient to shout out that he saw a mighty snake. The patient was considered to be insane but she realised the evil spirit within her was what the man had seen.

Realising that her snaky nightmares and the resultant gloom that always followed her life were not ordinary, she embarked on a long mission for solution. She visited many churches which confirmed she was possessed but could not deliver her. Her quest for deliverance took her to South Africa and Zimbabwe but nothing good came out of those trips. Discovering The SCOAN and Prophet T.B. Joshua via YouTube, she decided to visit Nigeria but was initially discouraged by a pastor. It was after all her efforts failed that she made up her mind to visit The SCOAN.

Seated in the auditorium during The SCOAN Mass Prayer, the demon in her made her run away from the fire that pervaded the atmosphere. But after the service, the Holy Spirit arrested her in a special prayer session in which the demon, bombarded by heavy anointing, spoke out through its host: “She refused to marry me; so, I projected a serpent. I am at her back as a serpent. I don’t care about her family. I just don’t want her to make it. We are cultists. You cannot take her from me. I have been here for a long time, for almost thirty years. They advised her not to come here but she insisted that she must come. I am the head of Ogboni (cult).” The man of God, taking authority in the name of Jesus, commanded the demon out of Mrs Idowu Dennis who immediately fell to the ground.

Returning to the church for her testimony, Mrs Dennis thanked God for her freedom from captivity and urged people to put aside the falsehoods they are told about The SCOAN, stressing that God is here.

SLEEP APNEA LOSES ITS GRIP FOREVER

For ten years, Mr Agyei Boateng suffered from obstructive sleep apnea, a condition that prevented restive, uninterrupted sleep. The problem led him to travel to the UK for medical attention and it was so severe that a surgery was carried out on him. There was no respite for the Ghanaian in spite of the money spent and efforts made trying to seek MR YAW AGYEI BOATENGsolution. His daughter, an ardent watcher of Emmanuel TV, introduced him to the channel. After watching several times, Mr Boateng’s faith was built to an unshakeable level, so much so that he decided to visit The SCOAN.

On getting to The SCOAN, father and daughter were placed in the Prayer Line with the father connected to his oxygen machine. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, on sighting Mr Boateng, handed out a bottle of the Morning Water to the daughter and asked her to minister it to her father. While ministering the Morning Water, the young woman fell to the ground, immediately under the influence of the Holy Spirit. The man of God thereafter instructed Mr Boateng to minister the Morning Water to himself. As he ministered it, his body began shivering under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Commanding him to remove the oxygen machine, the man of God declared him free and he was free indeed, through Christ Jesus.

Testifying before the congregants, Mr Boateng, in company of his daughter, praised God for healing him and restoring his sleep. He advised people all over the world in the following words: “God does miracles through the Morning Water. Anytime you are praying, pray for the man of God”.

STIFF NECK LOOSENED BY GRACE

MR ALOYSIUS OSIUWU [HEALED FROM STIFF NECK]For Mr Aloysius Osuiwu, it was pain all through as he battled with a stiff neck caused by cervical spondylosis and degenerative disc disease after he was involved in a motor accident. The indigene of Imo, Nigeria experienced serious discomfort, especially at night. Whenever he wanted to sleep, he was forced to keep his head facing up. He could not sit properly without support. He had been to four different hospitals and had spent a fortune but no respite still. He was confined to a neck collar after all medications failed to bring about any improvement. The option of surgery was there but he declined the offer. Recalling a horrible dream his daughter had in which he died in a motor accident, he concluded that his problem might be spiritual and instead opted to visit The SCOAN.

On coming to The SCOAN, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for him. According to him, during the prayer with Prophet T.B. Joshua, he felt a sensation and heard a sound like a bone being fixed back to its normal position. In an instant, he felt no more pain and stood up celebrating his healing to the glory of God.

Thanking God for his healing amid demonstrations of his total fitness, Mr Osuiwu said he now does all the things he could not do when he had the problem. “We should look for Jesus Christ; He is our solution,” he advised people the world over.

INITIATED THROUGH A DRINK; DELIVERED THROUGH A WORD

“There is a brother under the canopy – you are an armed robber.” Sitting in the overflow congregation at The SCOAN, Chukwuma Emengini sat listening to the message from Prophet T.B. Joshua in shock. Church was the last place he had wanted to be on the weekend – a time he wanted to spend with his gang. Chukwuma’s life, though young, was already marked with violence, crime and witchcraft. It all started with the friends he had chosen. After celebrating a football victory with friends, one of them dropped a charm into a glass of alcohol and asked him to drink it. He hesitated but since it was given to him by a friend, he agreed to drink it. The unthinkable then began. On the very day he took that drink, he had a bad dream in which he found himself breaking into people’s shops and houses, stealing their belongings. Subsequently the urge to steal built its tent in his heart to the extent that he consulted a native doctor who prepared a charm for him to make his body impregnable to bullets and knives. An incision was made on his hand to complete the diabolic fortification and the native doctor tested his charm on the lad to ensure that it was working by firing a shot into the boy’s arm which bounced off and hacking at his head with a sword, which also left no mark. Initially, Chukwuma and his friend who gave him the charmed drink started as pick-pockets and progressed rapidly towards becoming armed robbers. After every successful operation, they would relax in night clubs and squander their loot on alcohol, cigarettes and drugs.

However, as strong Christians, his parents had noticed their son’s strange behaviour and had made up their minds to bring him to the Arena of Liberty lest he die an untimely death. Seated under one of the overflow canopies, the young man received the following prophecy from the man of God: “There is somebody under the canopy out there. The reason I am calling you is because you are a thief. You have that spirit of stealing. You have graduated to a high level of robbery… you need deliverance because this thing keeps tormenting you.” The young man made his way into the auditorium and confirmed the prophecy after which he received deliverance in the mighty name of Jesus. Thanking God for the deliverance of his son, his father, Mr Ikechukwu Emengini advised people, especially parents, to put their hope and trust in God.

PROPHETIC WORD RESTORES CEASED MENSTRUATION AFTER 17 YEARS
MRS HELEN NATHANIEL [HEALED OF CEASED MENSTRUATION]Mrs Helen Nathaniel had the problem of ceased menstruation for 17 years. She went to many specialist hospitals in search of a solution and was diagnosed with hormonal imbalance by various doctors. The doctors could not provide her with a permanent solution and could only prescribe multiple medications for her. She started going around to different churches in search of solution to her problem. She was even frustrated more as she was asked to ‘offer’ a lot of money in exchange for their so called ‘deliverance’ but deliverance never came. After she had spent all her money in the ‘churches’, she decided to pray on her own.

One day, she received a flyer to visit a church and when she went to the church, they encouraged everyone to watch Emmanuel TV. Following their recommendation, she installed Emmanuel TV and began watching it daily and praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. One night, she had a dream in which Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her. Immediately after the prayer, she saw two dwarf-like beings leaving her body.

This prompted her decision to visit The SCOAN. On the Sunday she arrived, she was perplexed to discover that while she had come all the way from Abuja to enter the church, upon the point of entry, something in her told her not to. The SCOAN ushers, seeing her hesitation, encouraged her to enter the church to receive her deliverance. Finally, she agreed to enter the auditorium and during the Sunday service, Prophet T.B. Joshua came straight to her and gave her a prophetic word. He prophesied that she was suffering from ceased menstruation and then prayed for her in the name of Jesus Christ.

That night in her hotel room, she began to feel strange sensations in her abdomen and in the morning, her deliverance was miraculously confirmed – her long ceased menstruation had started flowing.

Mrs Helen’s advice to everyone was, “Be patient and trust in God. Only God can heal you. Look for a living church and worship there”.

Brethren, as we keep doing the will of our God and focusing on him alone, we are assured of a great tomorrow, irrespective of what the irony of fate brings our way. Because he lives we can face tomorrow!

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.

ASTHMA, ENLARGED HEART AND ALCOHOLISM UPROOTED FOREVER 

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.

KIDNEY STONES FLUSHED OUT BY HOLY GHOST POWER

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.

FROM COLOSSAL DEBT TO COLOSSAL BREAKTHROUGH

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.

DELIVERED FROM VIOLENT LION SPIRIT

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.

MASS PRAYER EXPELS DESTRUCTIVE DOG SPIRIT

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.

A BUNCH OF MIRACLES FOR THE KOLOS

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.

The SCOAN Sunday service of October 11, 2015 was packed with incisive messages that came from different quarters. From the SCOAN Worship Team came songs of praise and worship that reminded congregants of the need to draw nearer to God in an era when the distractions of this world are so prevalent.

EVANG. ANNETTE (3)

Consequently, Evangelist Annette, in her message titled FLIRTING WITH OTHER GODS summed up the vanity of chasing and mingling with entities which seem to take the place of God in our lives. It could be money, fame, beauty, education or even pride. Her deep message captured the universality of God’s supremacy over all His creation and His propensity to get jealous of our infidelity in His marriage with us. She stated, As Christians, the Bible warns us against flirting with other gods because as the children of Israel demonstrated in the Old Testament, flirting leads not only to immorality and unfaithfulness but also causes jealousy on the part of our God and the Book of Exodus 20:5 tells us that our God is a jealous God. In marital relationships, husbands and wives have a key responsibility to remain faithful to each other; likewise as Christians, we have a key responsibility to remain faithful to God”.

 

RAISED FROM THE VALLEY OF LACK TO THE HEIGHTS OF ABUNDANCE

CHINONSO IGWEZE 4In a desperate bid to seek greener pastures, Mr Chinonso Igweze swore he would get an American visa at all costs. His desperation fuelled his vaulting ambition to the extent that a family member took him to a spiritualist in an obscure bush located around Badagry area of Lagos, Nigeria. After collecting his personal details, the spiritualist requested for his mother’s clothing. But scared of the consequences of his actions, he went home without returning. After some time, he began to see the spiritualist in his dreams. On certain occasions, the spirit would appear physically in the form of a human skeleton, opening the door to his room and scaring the life out of him.

As these strange realities unfolded around him, things became pretty precarious. His life nosedived from hope to hopelessness. He found himself caught up in a web of struggles. Feeding his family and paying his bills became cumbersome. In his search for solution, he also read a spiritual literature that had a great influence on his psyche. It was at the point when life became unbearable that he ran down to The SCOAN. Seated in the auditorium during a Sunday service, he was spotted by the man of God who reeled out prophetic insights about all his past activities, including the visit to the spiritualist as well as the reading of the spiritual book.

Having affirmed the prophecies of the man of God about his life, he received his deliverance. After his deliverance, he returned to South Africa. In a matter of months, his life took a promising turn. The clouds of hopelessness that dimmed his glory gave way to a brighter and newer beginning. He soon acquired a truck which he put on the road for haulage business.  In no time, he was able to acquire two buildings from the proceeds of his new venture. In his own words, “…after my deliverance at The SCOAN, my life changed positively and moved from lack to abundance”. He advised people all over the world to hold onto God and seek Him for deliverance.

SWOLLEN PROSTATE DEFLATED BY THE ANOINTING

CHIEF OJONG ROLANDChief Ojong Roland, a traditional ruler from Cameroon suffered very severe pains in his genitals. He found it difficult passing out urine. Whenever he was travelling from one state to the other within his country, he would draw the ire of other passengers anytime he alighted from the vehicle to ease himself because of the time it would take him to urinate. His condition was so bad that sometimes he would just abandon one vehicle only to board another in order to avoid offending other passengers. All medical examinations conducted on him showed no result even when they were narrowed down to sexually transmitted diseases. Eventually, doctors confirmed he had a swollen prostate.

Sleep became alien to him as he would stay awake all night battling with his bladder which struggled to pass out urine in batches. While his ordeal with the strange ailment lasted, one of his advisers in the palace introduced him to Emmanuel TV and encouraged him to try the power of God at The SCOAN. In 2013, he visited the Arena of Liberty where he received the Morning Water and returned to his country. On getting back to Cameroun, the pains reared their ugly heads once again. But convinced that the Morning Water is filled with the healing power of God, he ministered it to his lower abdomen, declaring that his situation would not escape the anointing of God. Within seconds, he felt the forceful urge to urinate and decided to do so into a bowl. As he emptied his bladder, a maggot dropped out!

Since that moment, he was delivered from the pains and the inability to urinate freely. When he returned for another medical examination after ministering the Morning Water, he was certified free from the swollen prostate that almost rendered him incomplete. Thanking God for his deliverance, he urged people to turn to God, irrespective of their social status as only Him can heal and deliver them.

SPIRIT OF SMOKING ANNIHILATED

Mr Jonas Chukwuma, a Nigerian living in London, started smoking cigarettes since 1990 and continued the dirty habit until four years ago when he had an encounter with the power of God via Emmanuel TV. Then, he would wake up from sleep every morning with a stick of cigarette in his hand. He could not empty his bowels without lighting ‘the stick of destruction’. Sometimes, he smoked a packet or more in a day, depending on his mood. His finances suffered from the habit as he found it difficult to save money. He knew he had a problem and decided to seek solution.JONAS CHUKWUMA

A friend introduced him to Emmanuel TV and urged him to seek God’s intervention into his case through the channel. He eventually found the channel on the internet where he prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua right from his home in London. After the prayer, he felt uneasy all over his body and rushed to the bathroom to take a shower only to resume smoking after he had felt some calmness. As he smoked away, a voice declared, “…you are set free from the spirit of smoking from henceforth”.

From that moment till today, he has not returned to cigarette smoking. His business and financial fortunes have improved commendably. Thanking God for setting him free from a habit that held him hostage for many years, he encouraged people all over the world, to believe in God’s power.

TRIPLE PROMOTION INSPIRED BY THE ANOINTING

DENNIS OGEGERE Mr Dennis Ogegere from Delta State, Nigeria, had applied for the position of a Fireman in the Delta State Civil Service but was erroneously offered the position of a driver. Accepting the offer physically, he decided to fight for his rightful position spiritually by coming down to The SCOAN to receive the Morning Water. The following year, he was informed of a promotion exam. As he prepared to go for the exam, he was told not to bother as his name was no longer included in the list of eligible candidates. But convinced that the God of T.B. Joshua would see him through, he ministered the Morning Water on his appointment letter.

Afterwards, he attended the interview much to the surprise of his friends who wondered how his name even came up when he never sat for the exam. After the interview, he was sent a corrective letter confirming his employment as Fireman instead of driver. After one year, his promotion was granted as he was elevated to the position of Leading Fireman. The following year, he also received promotion as Senior Fireman

He was subsequently promoted to Chief Fire Superintendent. Displaying his triple promotion letters to the admiration of The SCOAN congregation, he thanked God for lifting him up from oblivion to glory while urging people not to lose hope or get discouraged whenever they are facing challenges in life.

GOD LOVES YOU AND WILL NEVER BE HAPPY WHEN YOU FLIRT WITH OTHER GODS WHO DON’T REALLY OFFER ANYTHING OTHER THAN SORROW AND TEARS. BRETHREN, SURRENDER YOUR HEART TO GOD AND BE FAITHFUL TO HIM FOR HE SHALL BLESS YOUR DAYS AND CROWN YOU WITH GLORY. EMMANUEL!

It was another moment of praise, worship and thanksgiving. The congregation would never be tired of giving thanks to their God for all the wonderful works He continues to do in their lives. The atmosphere was replete with joy, hope and the urgency of divine expectations. The songs of the Emmanuel Singers added life to the day as the congregants digested some spiritual food from the lyrical admonitions of the choir. Sunday, July 12, 2015 witnessed a SCOAN church service that once again connected the people of God with their Father in heaven. It was a day the Lord Himself made and the congregants rejoiced and were glad in it.

EVANGELIST FANNY

Evangelist Fanny reminded Christians of the need to guard the content of their heart as it is the most treasured gift God has given them. In fact, she describes the heart as a treasury in a message titled: TAKE CARE OF THE TREASURY, YOUR HEART. According to Evangelist Fanny: “What a person treasures or values determine what he thinks about all day long, what he talks about and whom he will obey I mean determines his meditation, conversation and actions. God has entrusted us with a treasury which is our heart and the things coming out of the treasury translate what you regard as valuable I mean whom you decided to yield your spirit to. Just as there is no neutral kingdom, there is no neutral heart. Your heart is either a residence of the Holy Spirit or a residence of satan (Romans 8:7-9)”. In other words, our hearts determine the nature and quality of our lives. As Christians, it is from the contents of our hearts that we can be seen either as God’s children or friends of the devil.

According to Evangelist Fanny, we cannot occupy our hearts with worldly things and expect the Spirit of God to remain there: “As long as the things of the world are in place in your treasury, the things of the spirit will be displaced. I mean as long as the rocks of hatred, the thorns of unfaithfulness and the stone of un-forgiveness are in your treasury, the pearls of kindness, the precious stones of faithfulness, the silver of goodness and the gold of love will be affected – for a good man has a good treasure in his heart and from there he brings forth good things proving his son-ship”.

Continuing, she added that Christians fall into temptations and lose faith in God because their hearts are filled with mundane things: “Our heart is so corrupt that when faced with temptation, test and trials, our affection becomes unstable. We focus on man and lose focus on God. We place position, money and the likes above God in our heart and fail the test -because we are more of ourselves and less of Him, more of the flesh and less of the Spirit – not in harmony with the Word. We are hiding under the cover of religion rather than relationship with God – forgetting that the great thing God looks at and requires is the heart”.

To live a fulfilled and Spirit-filled life capable of making our hearts His dwelling place, Evangelist Fanny offered a recipe: “Let the Word of God become your database for your personal opinion. Love, kindness, good affection, tenderness, wisdom of utterance, power to counsel and good knowledge must be treasures hidden in the treasury ready for use as occasion demands. Your heart must be fixed and established on the solid foundation, the right source which is the living Word of God.You must do the Word, act the Word, live the Word, trust implicitly in the Word because God on His throne is backing up every Word – Him and the Word are one, if your heart and the word are one, your heart is heaven”.

She concluded by admonishing Christians to take good care of their hearts and ensure that it is always filled with positive things rather than the garbage of mundane considerations: “Take care of your heart – Be careful with what you think right now – always think positively. Let us remember always that Jesus still sees the treasury today, just as much as He had done during His earthly ministry. He knows the motives and purpose behind men’s action; He looks at the disposition of their hearts while praying, moving, talking – whether they are doing what they are doing to honour God that is in humility and faith or to be honoured by men with arrogance and conceit. You cannot do anything successfully and fellowship with God when your heart is full of evil thoughts, hatred, jealousy, greed and the like”.

TESTIMONIES
OUR GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF SITUATIONS, PROBLEMS AND CHALLENGES. HE IS ABLE AND ALWAYS WILLING TO HELP US OUT OF OUR TROUBLES. AT THE SCOAN, TESTIMONIES ARE THE PROOF THAT HE IS INDEED WITH US. THE FOLLOWING TESTIMONIES ARE MEANT TO BUILD YOUR FAITH FOR UNCOMMON BREAKTHROUGH IN JESUS’ NAME

OVERSEAS ADMISSION SECURED THROUGH MORNING WATER MINISTRATION
MISS NADINE LAWRENCE & MOTHER (3)

For Mrs Lillian Lawrence, the joy that came into her life was definitely a miracle. Never had she thought that her daughter’s admission headache which had lingered for two years would come to be resolved on a platter of gold. The native of Imo State based in Gabon was fed up with the inability of her daughter to secure admission into the university to study Medicine. The girl had made very good grades in her Senior School Certificate Examination but was inexplicably unable to secure admission into a university abroad. Several attempts to work out something in Romania and the UK proved futile and kept mother and daughter on the trenches of surrender.

Mrs Lawrence would not give up. She came down to The SCOAN and received the Morning Water with which she prayed fervently asking God to make her daughter’s admission a reality. After the prayers and ministration of the Morning Water, young Nadine’s results were sent to Georgia, United States. To God be the glory, a university based in Georgia offered her admission to study Medicine (with her visa secured) bringing an end to all the frustrations mother and daughter went through – a confirmation of the fact that when we run to God, He takes care of our troubles. Testifying before The SCOAN congregation, both mother and daughter urged people to wait on God as He is the only one that can do what no man can do.

FRUIT OF THE WOMB RECEIVED THROUGH MORNING WATER MINISTRATION
MR&MRS ELOM BERNARD (2)Mr and Mrs Elom Bernard from Ebonyi State were married for over five years without a child. Diagnosed with low sperm count and staphylococcus, respectively, it was the most dispiriting experience for them to bear the brunt of childlessness in a continent where it is perceived as some kind of stigma and social inadequacy. Mr Bernard gathered himself together hoping to find a way out of their burden. A good friend came along to introduce the couple to The SCOAN where they received the Morning Water. The couple MR&MRS ELOM BERNARD (3)ministered the Morning Water in faith thanking God for answering their prayers and granting their requests even when they had not seen the manifestation. And their strong faith moved God into action. Three months later, Mrs Bernard became pregnant.

Testifying at The SCOAN with his wife who is now nine months pregnant, Mr Bernard thanked God for putting smiles on their faces and for making them expectant parents. The couple advised people to take their problems to God alone.

WHEN IT SEEMS THE WHOLE WORLD HAS DESERTED YOU AND WHEN PROBLEMS PIERCE THEIR ARROWS INTO YOUR LIFE, GOD ALONE IS ABLE TO RESCUE YOU. THERE IS NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE WITH HIM. DRAW NEARER TO HIM NOW AND HE WILL COVER YOU WITH HIS BANNER OF LOVE. AS YOU KEEP WATCHING EMMANUEL TV AND BUILDING YOUR FAITH, AWESOME MIRACLES WILL BE YOUR POTION IN JESUS’ NAME.
EMMANUEL

Sunday April 19, 2015 witnessed an outpouring of the Spirit of God during The SCOAN Live Sunday Service. With songs of praise and worship radiating throughout the entire auditorium and putting the congregants on their dancing feet in celebration of God’s benevolence, the Emmanuel Singers prepared the way for the man of God to impart the Word on the minds of God’s people.

Citing the admonition of Jesus to His faithful in John 16:33 (“I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows but take heart because I have overcome the world.”), the man of God reminded Christians of the inevitability of trials in the Heavenly race, stressing the fact and cardinal truth that only in Jesus would the world find peace, redemption and triumph. But before these are attained, there must always be a season of trials and sorrows even as our Lord was put through from Golgotha to Calvary.

TB Joshua

“Your trials could be limitation in progress, setback, isolation or any foolish thing. Jesus is saying in this Scripture, ‘Even though the world is a danger place, in Me, you will be saved – I will keep you safe. Even though the world is a danger zone, a danger place, in me, I will keep you safe’. It means Jesus is closer to you than you, yourself”.

For those who are without Jesus and who have become more engrossed in their problems and challenges, the man of God said they are missing the privilege of enjoying the benefits which being under the cover of Jesus offers. As we cast our minds upon Jesus, He has promised to carry our burdens.

“If you are without Jesus, you will always be conscious of problems, fear instead of being conscious of Jesus. People are conscious of fear and problems but not of Jesus today. People are no longer conscious of God. If the way you are conscious of your situation was the way you were conscious of God, your life would not be like this.”

Commenting on the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa, Prophet T.B. Joshua observed that every country of the world has its peculiar challenges. This assertion brings us to the fact that even countries pass through trials in order to mature spiritually. It also shows that all human hassles are vanity because those who have fled their countries to South Africa have now realized that the real greener pasture lies in running unto God.

The man of God therefore urged all Africans to come together as one to fight the common enemy, satan. “The wound of one should be the wound of all. Whatever happens in any African country, we should be concerned and come together. We should see it as ours. Every continent is like a human being. One country may be leg, mouth, head etc. If anything happens to a part of the body, the whole body will feel it. That is the way it should be. Today, if anything happens, we evacuate our people. Why can’t we come together to redeem our continent? Africa, unite”.

Concluding, the man of God urged the congregation to use their faith to put a demand on the anointing as he took authority in Jesus’ name to lead a Mass Prayer against satan and all his evil antics manifested through generational curses and other means of disrupting the good works of God.

TESTIMONIES
Week in, week out, the wonderful works of God in the lives of His people from all over the world are testified to at The SCOAN as a mere token of what our Father in Heaven can do. No matter the magnitude of the situation, nothing is beyond our God. Even distance is not a barrier. The following testimonies show that God is truly with us:

THE OVARIAN CYST FELL OUT!
Mrs. Tebogo Nfana from Botswana suffered severe pains in her lower abdomen for eight long years. In her quest for medical solution, she was diagnosed by her doctors with an ovarian cyst. The pain that accompanied her health condition rendered her redundant at home as her husband took up her domestic duties such as preparing food and catering for the other needs of their children. The doctors would only administer painkillers to her, telling her that there was no other solution within their reach.

Ovarian Cyst

Moved by a faith that knew no bounds, all she needed to do was to touch the screen while her husband was being prayed for at the Prayer Line. Her husband had come down to The SCOAN in 2013 to stand as a connection point to his wife who was in far away Botswana. They had agreed in faith that as soon as he is being prayed for at the Prayer Line, she should just touch the screen for her healing. Just as her husband was about to receive prayer, he had sent her an SMS asking her to touch the Emmanuel TV screen to receive her healing. As her husband, who had already placed hands on his abdomen (to represent his wife), was being ministered to, Mrs. Nfana touched the TV screen to claim her healing in faith.

Minutes later after her historic display of faith, she felt pressed and rushed to the restroom to relieve herself. To her surprise, a large lump came out! After a while, she returned to her doctors to ascertain her state of health. As usual, a fresh scan was carried out. The result was a miracle. The ovarian cyst that had been earlier detected was nowhere to be found! Filled with indescribable joy and laughter, Mrs. Nfana told the congregation that there is nothing God cannot do and advised them to continue to use the Morning Water as a point of contact between them and their miracles in Jesus’ name.

UNCOMMON BLESSING BESTOWED ON BOXING CHAMP
For Mr. Michael Ayitey Powers, it was a huge embarrassment for months as he kept on jumping from taxi to taxi. It was not a status befitting for an internationally reputed cruiser weight boxing champion of Ghanaian descent. The last car he bought was eventually taken away from him after the purchase deal went awry due to some disagreements with the seller. This development turned him into a common pedestrian who only managed to use taxis from time to time. Soon, the gossip-mongering public began to bandy rumours about his taxi-boarding escapades. Shattered by those unsavoury experiences, he was in dire need of a change for the best. He desired a car befitting of his status and looked up to God for intervention.

As he was walking around one day, he saw a vehicle for sale which he admired at a car dealership showroom and decided to enquire about its cost. The Audi A4 car according to the owner was to go for fifty thousand Ghanaian Cedis. Even though he had no money at that point in time, he requested to test-drive the car. After test-driving the car, he was impressed with it and decided to park somewhere to pray to God for the provision of the money for the purchase of the car. Clutching his Faith Bracelet, he cried out to God asking him to prove Himself once again by making him the proud owner of the Audi A4.

Ayitey Powers

After praying and asking God to make him the owner of the car, he went back to the owner to hand the car over to him. Apparently expecting negotiations to begin, the owner was shocked when Mr. Powers told him that he would come back for the car because it belongs to him. After they had exchanged phone numbers he told the car owner that no one else would buy the car except him. After that encounter with the car owner, he moved on pondering on how to raise the money for the car.

While praying in church one day, he was informed by a friend that the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua was around. After church that day, he went to one of the ushers to find out if he could just say hello to the man of God. He was told that though, the man of God was in Ghana, he was not available at that moment, so Powers returned home. Being a multi-talented personality with interests in music and showbiz, he was on location for a movie and left his phone at home. When he returned, he discovered several missed calls including an SMS from The SCOAN requesting him pick his calls. By the time he called the number from The SCOAN, he was informed that the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua had been trying to see him. He was however also informed that, though the man of God had returned to Nigeria, he left a message for him.

Hearing this message, he rushed down to the church thinking that the man of God had left some Morning Water for him. On getting to the church, he was ushered into a room where he saw one of the greatest wonders of his entire life! A big envelope filled with money was shown to him as the message left for him by the man of God. According to him, all through his professional boxing life, he had never seen that kind of money. Opening the envelope, he discovered he had been blessed with a huge financial. Speaking with authority, he immediately put a call across to the car owner to come for his money. That was how he became the proud owner of an Audi A4 open roofed car. Many people were unable to come to terms with the miraculous blessing that came Mr. Powers’ way; there were insinuations that he rented the car. But that was only a confirmation that God’s glory and power are beyond human comprehension.

EMOTIONAL RESTORATION AND BREAKTHROUGH AFTER PROPHECY
Mr. Emmanuel Gati from Ghana suffered untold emotional trauma after the death, in a motor accident, of his loving wife whom he cherished so much. He was so stricken by her death that he collapsed and remained unconscious for four days. Even after he regained consciousness, the mental and emotional tolls weighed heavily upon his shoulders. Doctors diagnosed him with a heart attack. His business also suffered stagnation as he tried to sort his life out from the rubbles of emotional ruin. Burdened by the stark reality of his better half’s demise, some persons were speculating that he had a hand in her death. With the unfortunate interplay of all those incidents, it took only God’s grace for him to survive the sad odds conspiring against his happiness.

One of his friends who took profound notice of his withdrawn composure insisted that he had to come down to The SCOAN for spiritual rehabilitation. But that was a tall order for the grieving man whose wife was still in the mortuary, waiting to be laid to rest that week. Somehow, he bowed to the pressure to visit The SCOAN. Seated in the auditorium, he was spotted during prophecy time by the man of God who first and foremost cleared the air concerning the wrong accusations that he had a hand in his wife’s death. The man of God said Mr. Gati is a very responsible father who loved his wife and was shaken by her death. He even said that had Mr. Gati the power, he would have laid down his own life to save that of his wife.

Emmanuel Gati

The man of God prophesied that Mr. Gati is destined to be rich adding that the Petrol Station he had was only a tip of the iceberg. He said Mr. Gati would own petrol depots. Many people called to sympathise with him having realized through the man of God’s prophecy that he had no hand in his wife’s death. After the burial of his wife, he gradually began to get over all his emotional challenges.

True to the prophecy of the man of God, after the burial of his wife, he started and completed the construction of a multi-purpose stopover made up of a restaurant, shopping malls, a petrol station and fuel depots. His restaurant is now one of the most popular and prestigious in his area, attracting well over 3,000 guests on a daily basis. Confessing that his thinking, emotional life and health improved after coming to The SCOAN where he received the life-changing prophecy, Mr. Gati also said that his businesses took a dramatically prosperous turn to the glory of God.

Displaying pictorial evidence of his booming business empire, he thanked God for changing his story and urged the congregation to take advantage of the anointing available to break every yoke of poverty and setback in their lives!

We give all the glory to God for the wondrous events witnessed throughout the Sunday service and await greater things throughout the week as the presence of God that manifested so tangibly during the service continues to follow all those who participated in the life-changing service!
