The 50th Birthday Anniversary celebration of Prophet T.B. Joshua has come and gone but the euphoria still lingers in the atmosphere. In line with his advice that the spirit of the celebration should be made manifest in a life devoted to prayer for the Church of God for a strong bond of love and rededicating ourselves to the acts of giving for the rest of our lives; the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua emerged on the podium looking apparently renewed. The congregation was no less renewed as was evident from the number of people that lined up to share extraordinary testimonies.
In his brief message, Prophet T.B. Joshua reiterated his resolve to encourage job creation by entrepreneurs and organizations all over the world. In response to the numerous responses already received from across the globe, he said, we don’t need to ask whether a candidate belonged to this or that church. What matters is that they are human beings. If God give you job and you take God’s job, you must accept God and a sense of judgment will be the result; you will think right and judge right. You will have a desire to know what happens after this life is over. You will think about that if God gives you a job. The job offers will reduce crime and what is happening to the youth all over the world.
South African Gospel Singer Deborah Fraser was guest at The SCOAN Sunday Service where she performed two of her heart-rending hit-track songs to the high-spirited congregation who sang along and danced praising God.
Because of want of space, we are constrained to bring to you only a few of the testimonies of healing, deliverance and breakthroughs resulting from the use of the New Anointing Water, Anointing Sticker and praying with the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV.
GOD QUALIFIES THE UNQUALIFIED
Mrs Mariana Parkhotyuk from the USA, was without a job until she visited The SCOAN during Prophet T.B. Joshua’s 49th birthday. She did not have the requisite qualifications for the job she had her eyes on. She was privileged to meet with the man of God who gave her the Anointing Water. When she returned to the USA she prayed and ministered the Anointing Water on herself and to her credentials and said to God, “God qualifies the unqualified”. After her prayers, she applied for a job as a Clinical Specialist and was given the job. The organization also sent her for on-the-job training which resulted in rapid promotion and new placement in her career. She not only has a bigger salary than she had ever received; she also got the chance to further her education through the job she was blessed with. She believes strongly that God used the medium of the Anointing Water to bring about more blessing and favour in her life.
SCHOLARSHIP GRANTED OUT OF NOWHERE
Mr Bryson Still from Washington, USA, started a degree course in Education but was unable to get the finances to further his education. He had made several efforts towards raising the necessary funds but was unsuccessful. He was privileged to receive the Anointing Water and anointed himself with prayer believing for a breakthrough in the name of Jesus Christ. Shortly after, he received a call from the President of his college whom he never knew, offering him a scholarship to the tune of US $50,000 which covered his tuition and all other expenses. He now has a hope for a bright academic future to the glory of God.
HOPELESSNESS TURNED TO HAPPINESS
Lesego Mabote from Botswana, told her moving story of how in her place of work, she had been painfully waiting for promotion for more than 10 years. In spite of her strong attachment to her job and the zeal to do her best, she was disappointingly demoted whereas her colleagues were being promoted.
This unusual trend of administrative injustice caused her depression and she gave up hope of ever being able to move upward in her career.
She resigned herself to working only for money for food and utilities and not expecting a better and brighter career future.
In search of solution to her problem she went to prayer houses but nothing positive came out of her being prayed for.
Coming from a background of idol worshipping family, she was obliged to go back home to find out what the matter was. She was told by spiritualists that if she did not keep up the practices of her forbears she would not expect any success or breakthrough in her career. This revelation blackened her horizon and she believed there was not a single chance of her coming out of her predicament.
As she however watched Emmanuel TV and saw the wonderful testimonies given by people who had similar situation as hers, she decided to come to The SCOAN and was privileged to receive the Anointing Water.
When she got home, she began to minister the Anointing Water every day in the name of Jesus, believing that her help could only come from the Almighty. She also prayed that God should rewrite her history of being bound to family tradition. The Son of God declared her free and she is free indeed.
Not long after, out of the blue, she received a call from her manager that she was due to be promoted to Supervisor of the office.
She is now proud to be occupying the position of a Supervisor in her office. Her depression and despair have been turned into joy.
DRY BONES SHALL RISE AGAIN!
Mrs Navone from Tanzania was not able to walk and was bound to a wheelchair for a long time. She arrived at The SCOAN on a wheelchair. She had to depend on her children to do everything for her and that situation of helplessness affected her psychologically and caused her serious depression. She had to stop going to work and would sit at home all day, desperate for relief.
She went to many hospitals and traditional healers but no solution could be found. As she watched Emmanuel TV and saw many testimonies of people with even greater problems than her own she received renewed hope. The faith that her own miracle was possible made her ask to be brought to The SCOAN even if it meant coming on a stretcher.
When she arrived at The SCOAN, she was seated at the canopy section within the overflow congregation. According to her, she was surprised as she saw her daughter crying for the man of God to help her, that her mother was sick. The man of God sent for her and people came and quickly wheeled her inside the church.
The man of God, T.B. Joshua prayed for her, touched her and asked her to rise up, in Jesus’ name. Immediately, she got up and started walking without any pain. She can now carry out all her domestic chores without assistance from anyone!
Her daughter, Mary Mboya, also testified to the extraordinary healing which had taken place in the life of her mother. She explained how the constant care and attention the condition of her mother demanded, had become a burden to her. The journey from Tanzania to The SCOAN was not easy for them as they had to pass through several countries and the transfer from one aircraft or vehicle to another was tiring for both of them. Her mother would cry all night due to the pain in her legs.
Now, after the prayer, she sleeps peacefully. She no longer has to use a wheelchair and walks freely without any pain.
Their advice to the viewers and congregation was simple: Believe that Jesus Christ is the Healer and great Physician in this world.
After the testimony, Mrs Navone danced before the Lord with overflowing thankfulness in her heart. She was warmly embraced and
congratulated by the numerous attendees from all over the world who danced with her inside the church.
