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.”

TESTIMONIES

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.

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

CONSULTATION WITH A SPIRITUAL MIRROR

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

EMMANUEL TV PARTNER REAPS GOD’S FAVOURS!

 Image

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

NOW ALCOHOL’S ENEMY NO 1!

 

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

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

her examinations due to lack of concentration.Image

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

DOUBLE BLESSING & BREAKTHROUGH

 Image

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

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

GOD HEALED MY LEG ULCER – “EVERY PROBLEM HAS AN EXPIRY DATE”

 

ImageImageImage

 

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

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

GOD’S GIFT OF HEALING

 

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

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

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

 

 

GOD DELIVERED ME THE WAY HE DID THE ISRAELITES

 

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

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

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

Emmanuel! God With Us!

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.

ESSIEN+

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.

Prophet TB JoshuaThe live services at The SCOAN continue to gather attention and interest from all over the world as the Lord Jesus Christ adds to the number of those who are being saved. With the introduction of the New Anointing Water, launched by the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, crowds came from far and wide for the chance to get their hands on just a bottle. The New Anointing Water it was stressed was being distributed free of charge to as many people as the production could manage. The cost to the ministry of producing the New Anointing Water, Stickers and Booklet were estimated to be in the range of $12 million but was given out for free. The man of God emphasised that he was giving water and that it was God Almighty who would do the anointing if only they were received in the proper attitude.

Unfortunately, the distribution of the New Anointing Water had to be suspended ‘til further notice due to the overwhelming demands of the mammoth crowd that flooded every available space on both Saturday and Sunday services but due to the large presence of foreigners, the New Anointing Water would be given out that very weekend. Keep watching Emmanuel TV for further information.

The following testimonies are just a tip of the iceberg of the instant miracles that took place during the sharing of the New Anointing Water. Take note – the following testimonies were received without even opening the New Anointing Water. Merely by receiving the package, the power of God fell upon the individuals privileged to come into contact with the gift from God.

SPINAL CORD PAIN AND NUMBNESS HEALED IN AN INSTANT
numbness
Ms Abigail, a nurse from Ghana, had spinal cord pain for many years. She also had numbness on her right side from head to toe. As a result, she could not lift objects with her right hand. She could not stand for a couple of minutes without suffering excruciating pain. She could not turn to either side or bend to pick anything from below. During the Live Sunday Service at The SCOAN, she was privileged to receive the New Anointing Water that was being distributed free of charge to everybody in the service. As soon as she handled the packet of the New Anointing Water, she felt a cold sensation run through her spine and over her entire body. She started vibrating and eventually fell down. When she rose up, to her surprise, the spinal cord pain had gone. The numbness had also disappeared. She demonstrated how she is able to twist her body in all directions and could even touch her toes.

DEAFNESS CURED INSTANTLY
Mr Chinedu Kingsley Amahuadike – residing in Abuja, Nigeria, had come to The SCOAN with a problem of deafness in his right ear for two years. Mr ChineduHis deafness came about due to overdose of drugs he had taken for treating a malaria attack. He was unable to hear with that right side of his ear. He had to turn the left ear to be able to follow a conversation. After receiving the New Anointing Water during the Live Saturday Service, he ministered it prayerfully to his affected ear. He heard a sound as of a mild explosion and immediately began to hear with the right ear. He thanked God for this wonderful healing as he demonstrated, covering his left ear while answering the interviewer’s questions.

 

UNDISCLOSED FIBROID DISCHARGED
Mrs Esther Ezeanya – Anambra Nigeria, had problem of sleeplessness and depression. She could not plan for the future because a thought always came to her that it was useless since she was in such a hopeless state of health. She had moving objects in her stomach which gave her sleepless nights and serious pain. After receiving the New Anointing Water from The SCOAN, she stopped taking the medication that she had been on for so many years. Before she went to bed, she placed the packet of the New Anointing Water on her stomach and the New Anointing Stickers on her chest and prayed believing that God will make a way for her where there seemed to be no way. That very night, she slept peacefully all through and was even reluctant to wake up in spite of the alarm on her cell phone that went off as she had programmed. When she eventually awoke, she went to the restroom to ease herself and to her surprise, what forcefully came out of her was a very big lump of thick fibroid which had never been diagnosed by the doctors she had visited in the past. Now she feels very light and is free from all the pains.

 

Mrs RuthANOINTING WATER PAYS DEBTS
Mrs Ruth Ubani, a Legal Practitioner had been facing financial crisis for many years which led to her husband who is a Contractor being in multiple debts. Other people were at the same time owing them. They were unable to even afford a good meal during this period. It occurred to her that they should come to The SCOAN for their breakthrough. They were privileged to obtain the Anointing Water and prayed fervently believing that Jesus was their only option between success and failure. After ministering the Anointing Water in the name of Jesus, the next day, they started receiving calls from many people who were owing them huge amounts of money, to come and collect their money. A day following the miracle, they were able to buy a new car and have since built a storey building where they now reside. She glorifies God for the multiple favours and advised all to remain steadfast in following Jesus Christ whatever life brought.

 

AN INDIAN BOY SCORES 100% IN HIS FINAL EXAMS
Dr Ravi, an eye surgeon from India and a medical doctor for 24 years, lives and practices in Nigeria. He has a son that was in his final years at Dr RaviCollege in India to whom he sent the New Anointing Water. The boy in far away India used to pray and ministered the Anointing Water to himself while preparing for the final year examinations. The examination result was astonishingly 100% on all the science subjects namely, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Electronic Studies – a feat the teachers are saying nobody in history had scored such outstanding marks in the entire District. They have been asking the boy which books he had studied to come out with such unprecedented results. To God’s power, nothing is impossible.

MISSING GIRL RETURNS AFTER NEW ANOINTING WATER MINISTERED ON HER PHOTOGRAPH
Mrs Victoria came to the church highly excited with what God Almighty had done for her and her family. She testified that she and her daughter, who accompanied her, had a very good and close relationship. However, suddenly for no reason and without any prior quarrel or trouble, her daughter just left the home and for eight years she was not seen or heard from again. The family was perplexed and began to search for her earnestly but with no result. They visited churches and prayed believing that she would surface, but nothing positive happened. As Mrs Victoria came to the church yesterday, she received the New Anointing Water and ministered it on her daughter’s picture. To her surprise, she received a phone call from her daughter not up to 30 minutes later! To prove it, there was her daughter standing by her side, smiling gracefully at what the power of God had done. According to the girl, she could not tell what came over her as she followed a strange voice and left the house. She had lived in a house within the same town where her mother was living but she was unable to find her way back to her home. After eight years, she could feel some sensation run over her body just as her mother had ministered the New Anointing Water on her photograph and something left her body. It was at that point in time that it occurred to her to search for her mother’s phone number and she called to reunite with her mother. She is very happy to be back home.

 

KIDNEYS RESTORED

Miss Chinenye Ndubueze shared her testimony of miraculous healing from chronic kidney failure through the medium of the New Anointing Water. Her mother opened the testimony by saying that her daughter had been at the point of death. Both her kidneys had failed and the medical professionals had given up on saving her life. She was unable to eat, talk, walk or do anything. It had even reached the point that she was telling her mother, that she had done a good job as a mother and that she would be leaving soon. Chinenye’s aunt visited The SCOAN and was privileged to receive the New Anointing Water. She visited the house where Chinenye was and ministered the New Anointing Water with her mother, praying that God would restore back to life whatever had died in her body. To their surprise, Chinenye immediately got up, walked around and demanded for food! A while later, they went to the hospital for a check-up and it was discovered that her urea levels which were deathly high before had gone down to normal levels. The medical reports of before and after the healing were displayed for all to see. Chinenye gave thanks to God for her miraculous healing and the strength in her body. Her two kidneys which had failed were restored back to normal by the blood of Jesus Christ through the New Anointing Water!

EYE PROBLEM CLEARED IN MOMENTS
Pastor
A Pastor who came to visit The SCOAN came forward after receiving an instant miraculous healing after being given the New Anointing Water. He explained that he had suffered with poor vision for the past 26 years. Due to this affliction he was not able to see clearly let alone read, without his glasses. At home he had up to 7 pairs of glasses that he would use. He had even received injections due to the problem but it had persisted. When he was given the New Anointing Water, he placed it on his heart and prayed. He felt a sensation flow through him, then a watery mucous came out of his eyes. After this he noticed that he could see clearly without his glasses. He could read text messages, see people clearly and read without the use of his glasses – all glory be to God! There are not natural words to describe the mighty power of God that can use any means to locate His people except to say, “Thank You, Jesus Christ.”

NEW ANOINTING WATER SAVES FROM ARMED ROBBER ATTACK
Mr Iboyi and passengers boarded a mini-bus from Bayelsa travelling to Lagos. On getting to Benin bypass they ran into two armed robbers who had blocked the highway at a spot where their accomplices had been waiting in ambush. The driver tried to out manoeuvre the robbers, but received gunshot wounds in the process. One of the passengers in the bus brought the new Anointing Water he had previously obtained from The SCOAN and ministered it in the bus. The other robbers numbering more than 20 that had been hiding in the bush started firing at the bus, but surprisingly none of their bullets penetrated the bus or injured any of the passengers in the bus. At a point, the driver who had succeeded in driving away from the robbers, said he was tired but the same passenger ministered the Anointing Water to the driver and he regained the strength to drive on. To God be the glory, in Jesus’ name, none of the passengers were harmed in the incident and God Almighty proved that His arms are not too short to save and deliver.

DIVINE PROTECTION
OP Gyama Gyawiya is the head of security operations in the troubled area of northern Nigeria. He said that due to the nature of his job which was life threatening, he would make sure that every morning he prayed with the Anointing Water for protection. He was privileged to receive the New Anointing Water and he continued to pray with it and minister it on himself every day. One night, he was resting in his office while his orderly was also there on guard in the main office but was sleeping with his rifle under his pillow. Four armed men came to the premises and captured the OP Gyamasecurity personnel at the gate; they arrived at his office and also captured his orderly and demanded for his rifle. They, however did not find where he was sleeping. They took all the captives into a cell, locked them up and left the premises. The next morning, other workers came to work and heard their colleagues shouting and crying for help in the cell. They had to call a welder to break the padlock and set them free. When they were released, they went to the office and to their utmost surprise, found the rifle exactly where it was left. OP Gyama Gyawiya explained that it was the grace of God that worked through the New Anointing Water that preserved them that night. If the armed robbers had taken the rifle, then he would have been dismissed and his career would have been in jeopardy.
His advice to his colleagues was to let the Anointing Water be their companion because their safety is in the Lord and their Refuge is in Him.

VISA ACCESS GRANTED AFTER MINISTERING THE NEW ANOINTING WATER
Mr Anozie Kingsley was experiencing setback in terms of getting a visa to travel out of the country to advance his business outside of Nigeria. He had been making applications for ten years without result. After he received the New Anointing Water, the next day, he received a call that a multiple visa to Canada had been issued to him. As if that was not mighty enough, a visa to India was also issued to him on the same day! After years of stagnation, God made a way within hours of ministering the New Anointing Water.

MIDNIGHT CONTRACT CALL WORTH MILLIONS
Mr Christian Nwachukwu Jackson from Ebonyi, Nigeria, came to The SCOAN with thousands of problems but believed God to meet him as He wills. He had been submitting proposals for contracts without results. This had kept him in a state of stagnation for a long time and he was unable to solve many personal and family issues. After receiving the New Anointing Water just yesterday, he prayed and ministered it over one of the proposals he had earlier submitted, fervently praying that God should grant him at least one outstanding proof of His mightiness. At exactly 12 midnight, he received a phone call from the Governor of the State asking his whereabouts. The State Governor asked him to come over on Tuesday morning to collect his approved proposal worth millions of Naira and that the issue which had been giving him sleepless nights now gave him boundless joy!

NEW ANOINTING WATER REVEALS MYSTERIOUS SCORPION 
Mr Vincent Fiamawle from Ghana was having a problem of movement of a strange object like a scorpion in his body which caused him severe pain. This affected him to the extent that he could not attend to his duties at work. He often referred to his afflictions as the presence of a scorpion but he could not be sure of that because he did not believe that a scorpion could live inside a person’s body. A friend of his had obtained the New Anointing Water from The SCOAN and had given him a few drops. In the night, he started feeling the movement of the scorpion in his body. This time, his faith was provoked and forced him to act. He knelt and prayed aggressively commanding the force of this strange object out of his body as he ministered the New Anointing Water to himself. Immediately after, to his amazement, a live scorpion fell from his body. He called one of his sisters to witness the object and he took a photograph of the scorpion. Since then, he no longer feels movement of any strange object in his body. He now sleeps soundly and has peace of mind. He advised people that trusting God is the only solution to our problems.

 

BOTTLED RESURRECTION POWER – THAT IS THE NEW ANOINTING WATER AND STICKER
Mrs Chiom
Mrs Chioma from Imo, Nigeria, had watched a testimony of how a woman’s child came back to life after ministering the Anointing Water and this strengthened her faith that she should trust in God. Strangely one day, her child was crying in the afternoon, without any reason. She tried to feed and comfort the baby but nothing could stop her from crying. Later, she thought the child had slept, but upon checking on her, she noticed that she had died and her body was frozen stiff. She tried to unclench the child’s fingers but could not. At that moment, there was a blackout. She asked her husband to put on the generator so that they could tune on to Emmanuel TV. They started praying along with the man of God for their baby to come back to life. At that point in time, the lady recalled that a friend had just returned from The SCOAN and had obtained the New Anointing Water. They called that friend who had received the New Anointing Water to help them. The lady arrived and they ministered the Anointing Water on the baby and placed the New Anointing Sticker on her face. The baby started moving her head and body and subsequently regained life. She advised that we should trust God in all seasons of life.

DELIVERED FROM DEMONIC ATTACK OF EVIL BIRD
Mrs Mary JacoMrs Mary Jacob from Kogi, Nigeria, used to see strange men coming to make love to her in her dreams. After every experience, she would have problems with her fiancé. In her dreams, she would see a bird coming to attack her. She sought for solution to this problem from various sources and prayer houses but to no avail. After obtaining the New Anointing Water from The SCOAN, she physically saw the bird coming to attack her and her sister immediately ministered the New Anointing Water which caused the instant death of the bird. She displayed the picture of a dead bird which happens to be the very bird that used to appear to her in her dreams. Since then she has been sleeping peacefully and no longer sees the bird.

SATURDAY SERVICE IS SUSPENDED HENCEFORTH

As the New Anointing Water was being handed out, the man of God made the announcement that The SCOAN Saturday Live Service would be suspended henceforth and encouraged viewers to watch Emmanuel TV for further details. However, the Thursday Prayer Line and Sunday Live Services would continue as normal.

With all that we have seen and heard over the weekend, what is left to say but to wonder what a God we have to worship, what a Son we have to praise and what a future lies before us who worship God in spirit and in truth? We encourage you to join Prophet T.B. Joshua and the Wise Men to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the four corners of the earth; in whatever way the Lord has blessed you, your gift is what God will use to bless others through you. So, reach out in compassion and generosity and demonstrate your spiritual unity with Christ through giving. As Prophet T.B. Joshua says, we make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give.

Sunday Service 19.07.12

The Sunday Service started off with the prayer line attended by a significant number of people who were set free from their bondage after which Prophet T.B. Joshua preached on “Acting On The Word – Part 2”.

Preaching the Word of God

In the sermon, the man of God said, “We have exact knowledge, perfect knowledge and complete knowledge. That knowledge is in the Word when illumined by the Spirit. Our spirit acts upon the Word”. He also said “The problem of believing is made simple when we know that it is acting on what God has spoken”. He also emphasized on the fact that if we have all gifts without love, it is a wasted energy (1 John 5:13).

He added that faith is not rooted in intellectualism. It is purely a spiritual issue, rather than an intellectual agreement. Faith comes when the Word prevails over the thinking processing. We may be familiar with original Greek or Hebrew or the history of the Word, but it is all wasted energy if we do not practice it.

He stated that Scriptural prayer releases the power of God and to fill your prayers with the Scripture. If the Word dominates your spirit, it will influence your conduct and behaviour. In our ministry (The SCOAN), the Word has been a living and growing force. The mighty One (Jesus Christ) that is in us is taken out of the Word. As we begin to do the Word, God begins to act in us and through us.


PASTOR POSSESSED BY THE IDOL HE DESTROYED

Apostle Ekune Joseph sharing his testimony of complete deliverance

The video recording of the experiences of Apostle (Dr) Ekune Joseph was the first to be played.  Before his deliverance last week, the evil spirit had spoken through him in the church, to the effect that it had destroyed his ministry after he had burnt the village idol and shrine which had been revealed to him in a dream as the cause of their limitation. The evil spirit further stated it’s dislike of the Bible, and was angered by the pastor’s passion for delivering people; it also caused people to protest in the church and fight within themselves when the Word of God was being preached. The evil spirit also explained that it was because the name, Jesus, was an enemy, which sent fire into their kingdom. The evil spirit also confessed to being behind his wife’s barrenness for 12 years. His church lost many members due to the attack from the infuriated idol. In the midst of his trouble, he had watched Emmanuel TV and decided to visit The SCOAN for deliverance.

In his testimony, Apostle Joseph explained that after destroying the idol in his village with a group of fellow pastors and prayer warriors, he had a strange attack in his dream whereby he saw squirrels chasing him away from the village. Following this experience, his zeal for prayer and reading the Bible suddenly began to diminish. He explained that any time he opened his Bible to read, dizziness would come upon him to such an extent that he would often sleep off without actually studying the Scriptures.

Upon his return to his church, strange incidents began occurring during his services. Firstly, anytime he mounted the pulpit to preach, some form of commotion or argument would break out within the members, distracting the people present from listening to the message. As a result of these distractions and contentions, many members left his ministry and the church he had worked so hard in to build up began to crumble.

The grateful minister of God explained that after praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV, he had a remarkable dream where he saw the Prophet calling on him to come to The SCOAN. Honouring the Divine invitation, he came and received his mighty deliverance. To God be the glory!

HOW DEMONS FROM JUPITER ENTERED A PASTOR AFTER HIS 40 DAY FAST
Another video was also shown of Pastor Kenny Udeh’s deliverance in The SCOAN the previous week. He was invaded and possessed by seven spirits stating they were from the jungle on the planet, Jupiter after fasting for 40 days and 40 nights on a mountain in Enugu State. He had wanted to assist an old woman and her daughter to lift some wood after which they disappeared and he became confused. He later travelled to Dubai where he ran into an ugly situation which put him into prison. After release from prison, he returned to Nigeria to continue preaching through his ministry, Paraclete Ministries.

Pastor Kenny narrating his experience of demonic possession

After that, his wife was feeding him and his household was always under constant threat. The spirit spoke through him that over nine people in his family had been killed and that although the pastor was strong, he also was tempted to almost kill his wife with a bottle and knife.

Pastor Kenny came forward to share his experiences. He explained that, as a minister of God, he had read various books about how other men of God had gone into prolonged periods of fasting and prayer in their quest for more supernatural power. Yearning for the same power in his ministry, one day he decided to enter into a 40 day fast on a mountain. He was there alone and did not even inform his wife of his intentions before going to the mountain.

He explained that on the 39th day of the fast, with his body both weak and frail, he saw an old woman suddenly appear on the mountain attempting to carry firewood. Helping the old woman to carry the fire wood, he gave it to her and returned back to his place of prayer. To his greatest surprise, upon looking back to see where the woman was, she had totally disappeared. He had just encountered an evil spirit! After returning from the mountain, Pastor Kenny explained how strange beings attacked him in his house the following night. From that point onwards, his ministry began spiralling steadily downwards. Frustration and stagnation became the order of the day

It came to the point where one day, he picked up a knife intent on stabbing his wife to death and ending his ministry in disgrace. However, before carrying out the devilish act, his daughter discovered him grasping the knife and pleaded with him to release it. Realising what the spirit was pushing him to do, Pastor Kenny resolved to visit The SCOAN, knowing that his case required spiritual intervention.

After attending The SCOAN service on Sunday, Pastor Kenny had a remarkable encounter in his dream. He found himself in a strange reddish land where demonic beings began introducing themselves to him, stating that they were from the planet Jupiter and their mission was to destroy him. In the midst of the encounter, he saw Prophet T.B. Joshua suddenly appear in their midst in a ray of light and strike him on the chest, calling on him to come. Waking up from the dream, it was the following day on Monday that he received his deliverance through prayer from the Wise Man.

When probed, Pastor Kenny explained that during the prayer from the Wise Man, he could actually see Prophet T.B. Joshua praying on his knees behind the Wise Man. This explained why the demons within Pastor Kenny had said they knew T.B. Joshua’s secret was hidden in Matthew 6:6 – “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”

PROFESSOR HEALED OF GLAUCOMA THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

Professor healed of glaucoma

The second service, characteristically, was the wise men praying for the congregation in the church where deliverance and healing took place in the lives of thousands of people. The second service ended with mass prayer from the wise men.

Reverend Professor Ngochindo had experienced glaucoma for 10 years, and had ocular pressure which rose to 29. He explained that if it reached 30, he would have gone blind. He was to be operated upon in Port Harcourt, where he practices as a medical doctor. Having refused the option of operation, he visited The SCOAN. He went through the prayer line and was later given the Anointing Water; he believed a spiritual operation was done on him by the five Wise Men. His ocular pressure dropped from 29 to 22.2, back to regular levels. He advised the viewers that if doctors had faith, they could do many things without a knife in the operating theatre and that everyone should put God first.

THE WHOLE COUNSEL OF GOD
Sunday, May 6, 2012 was another wonderful day in God’s presence at The SCOAN. Wise Man Christopher preached a message in the morning titled, ‘The Whole Counsel Of God’ in which he emphasised that people should not pick and choose only certain Scriptures, using 2 Timothy 3:16-17 as a proof text.

Wise Man Christopher

In the course of his message, he said, “Faith is of man’s spirit and heart, not of his mind and flesh. Acting on the Word of God builds faith in the believer.” Stressing the fact that faith does not work alone, he said that love, patience, prayer and faith must all work together in order to accomplish the purpose of God in one’s life. Speaking on the need for faith to work by love, Wise Man Christopher said, “A failure to walk in love shuts one down spiritually.” Referring to 1 Corinthians 13, he continued, “If I speak in the tongues of men and angels without loving others, I am merely talking to the air. Without love, I have accomplished nothing in life”.

He maintained that as Christians, we should love our neighbours as ourselves, irrespective of their religion or ethnicity. “Whether you are a friend or enemy, I am commanded by God to bless you. You are blessed!” He concluded by saying that our hearts must be rooted and grounded in God’s Word and in love, adding that there are no shortcuts to spiritual maturity.

 

CURSED TO BEDWET!

Daniel showing the pads he had to use before his deliverance from bedwetting

Mr Momodu Daniel shared a powerful testimony of how God delivered him from a curse of bedwetting after receiving a prophecy in the course of last week’s service from Prophet T.B. Joshua. Sharing his experience, Daniel said the affliction actually began in India where he was living a wayward life – going to clubs, womanising and doing fraudulent business. His girlfriend, whom he met in a club, became pregnant but he was not prepared to take up responsibility for his actions. He gave her money to abort the pregnancy but she cursed him for rejecting the pregnancy, saying that he would bedwet until the day he died. Although he did not take it seriously initially, just one month later the curse kicked into effect. “Since that moment, I wet my bed every single night for the past eight years,” he explained to the shocked congregation.

He said the ugly situation had damaged his reputation, as business colleagues refused to work with him because of the offensive odour around him. The situation was so severe that Daniel would have to wear pads and padded underwear whenever he went out and especially when going to sleep at night. “Without those pads, there was no way I could sleep. I couldn’t even wear light or white clothes; I would always put on black.” Because of the shame, Daniel had behaved like a recluse, unable to keep friends or stay in other people’s houses. He recounted an experience when, after bedwetting in a friend’s house, he was forcibly asked to leave the house at 1am and had to spend the night on the streets. “Just as T.B. Joshua prophesied, when I was caught bedwetting at a colleague’s house, I would blame it on the small boy who lived there,” he explained.

T.B. Joshua

 

However, Daniel’s story changed following his encounter with Prophet T.B. Joshua last week as the word of prophecy was followed by an immediate miracle! As Daniel stood before the congregation in immaculate white clothes, he testified, “Since last week when I received the prophecy, I have not experienced this bedwetting anymore!”

 Using the opportunity to talk on the power in God’s Word, Prophet T.B. Joshua said, “The Word of God is more sure and lasting than Heaven and earth.” He then added, “I shall say that which I shall live to see accomplished.”

 

 

 

HOW THE SPIRIT OF A RITUALIST ENTERED A PASTOR
A video was replayed to the congregation about the prophecy given to a Ghanaian pastor called Stephen during the course of last week’s Monday Prophetic service about his involvement with rituals. In his narration, he explained that shortly after his training at Bible School, he had a strange experience while praying for a man on the street. The man, who had complained to Pastor Stephen of being tormented spiritually following a money ritual, proceeded to physically beat him in the course of the prayer. At that moment, Stephen felt something enter him and left the scene visibly shaken.

“After that encounter, I began to see myself with people partaking in rituals in my dreams,” he explained, saying that the spirit of rituals had entered him from that point. “Whenever I lacked money, my mind would always tell me to go and do a ritual,” he explained. It came to the point where Stephen, without his wife’s knowledge, went to a ritualist who demanded that he bring five human fingers and an embryo in order to carry out the devilish act. Unable to find such items, he could not go further with his plan. He continued to experience setback, disappointment and financial hardship. Despite doing his pastoral work, Stephen was even advising friends in financial straits to visit ritualists.

Having watched Emmanuel TV, Stephen and his wife decided to visit The SCOAN in Nigeria. But even in Nigeria, he still visited a witch doctor, pushed by the spirit to do a ritual at all costs and at whatever price. Before going further, the witch doctor demanded N10,000, a sum which he was unable to afford. The following week he attended The SCOAN where his problem was exposed and he was delivered in Jesus’ name. Ever since his deliverance, Pastor Stephen testified that all thoughts and desires to do rituals vanished and he is now sleeping normally.

Calling on the congregation to pray for the church, Prophet T.B. Joshua said, “We need to pray for the church around the world. Pray for your pastor and ask God to redeem the church around the world”.

AN INSTANT DELIVERY!

A new life welcomed into the world!

Prophet T.B. Joshua, during the testimonies, prophesied that very shortly a baby boy would join the congregation, calling on them to pray. The prophecy was fulfilled when in the course of the service, Mrs Uche Patience who was booked for an operation because her baby was unusually large and positioned wrongly in her womb, delivered her baby boy safely and successfully!

Believing God for Divine intervention, she came to The SCOAN, which she called ‘her last bus stop’. After coming to The SCOAN that Sunday morning, she fell into labour and delivered without an operation, buoyed by the prayers of the whole congregation following Prophet T.B. Joshua’s prophetic declaration.

 

 

DELEGATION FROM FORMER IVORY COAST PRESIDENT LAURENT GBAGBO

Family of former Ivory Coast President, Laurent Gbagbo

 

In the course of the second service, a delegation from Ivory Coast, including the daughter and cousin of the country’s former President Laurent Gbagbo, came with a message for Prophet T.B. Joshua. Mr Guede Zadi Michael, Mr Gbagbo’s cousin, explained the reason for their attendance, stating that they came to correct the mistake that was made when the former president failed to honour the prophet’s invitation during the crisis in Ivory Coast. “We believe in Christ and the words of a prophet are to be honoured,” he said. Prophet T.B. Joshua thanked the delegation for their visit and prayed for the former President, his family and the nation of Ivory Coast.

 

 

AN INSTANT CONFIRMATION

A new president for France

During the service, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied that he saw a new person in the presidency of a French speaking nation, mentioning the numbers 2 and 3 and emphasising on 3. Just hours later, exit polls in France revealed that French President Nicolas Sarkozy had lost to Socialist leader Francoise Hollande in the elections by approximately 3 points. God is still saying something!
