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

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


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

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

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


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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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


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


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


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

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

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

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


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




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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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



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

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

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



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

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

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

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


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


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


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


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

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

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





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



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


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


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




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


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


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


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


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




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


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


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


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




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


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


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




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


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


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


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


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


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

What a day, overflowing with heavenly anointing, last Sunday was! From the landmark deliverance of a woman from Ghana who came with a horrible case of needles lodged in her system, to the astounding testimonies of God’s power, the service was phenomenal and breathtaking. The worship by the choir, the electrifying power of the Holy Spirit that unleashed spectacular healings and deliverances and the amazing prophecies all bore witness to the abundantly available anointing as God used the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, to set His people free from bondage.




Commenting on the woman whose case medical doctors had failed to permanently remove through surgical procedure, he said: “In the natural, you cannot defeat satan. The more you try, the more he becomes bigger.” By the power of the Holy Spirit, the man of God later on went ahead to set her free from her agony that had left her with multiple scars of surgeries through futile medical efforts. Prophet T.B. Joshua also taught on the power of faith, likening it to a heavenly currency. He then ministered prophecy to the congregation before attending to visitors who had come from all over the world at the prayer line where many people were set free from demonic affliction.


Earlier in the day, Wise Man Daniel delivered a thought-provoking message that prodded Christians not to murmur or grumble, but use their faith to access God’s blessings. Titled ‘USE YOUR FAITH TO PUT A DEMAND’ and anchored on the scripture from Hebrews 11:6, he said it is not the amount of prayer one prays that counts but the faith one puts into one’s prayer. He explained: “The Healer, the Deliverer, the Blessing Provider and the Saviour of the world is saying here, ‘It is impossible to please Me without faith.’ This implies that, as long as you have faith, God will work for you. Empty confession or profession of faith will not help us at all. Therefore, as a child of God, if you examine your life, you will find out how much faith you have. If you examine your life, you will know how much you please God, because only faith pleases Him – nothing else.”




Cementing his message with the cases of blind Bartimaeus and the woman with the issue of blood, he said: “Blind Bartimaeus’ shout was unique and different because it was a shout born of faith, which made Christ Jesus to stop in front of him. Such a shout could not be stopped by opposition of any form. The woman with the issue of blood believed enough to press through the crowd to touch the Healer Himself. As a Christian, when you discover a true minister of God, your responsibility is to believe.”



The abundant anointing, which God has made available through His servants, was reflected in the hundreds of people who came forward to testify to the glory of God.   Here are but a few of them:



She could barely breathe. As the crowds surged forward, pushing to enter the stadium, Mercy knew that the end was nigh. To her right, she saw a body lying unconscious, the crowd trampling on the lifeless frame unperturbed. Suddenly, a force from behind pushed her off balance and Mercy fell. Darkness reigned as the stampede surged forward and the young job-seeker lost all consciousness. One week later, Mercy opened her eyes to discover she was in a hospital ward. An oxygen mask was fitted to her face and doctors were fighting for her survival. Miss Mercy Attaidu was a victim of the fatal stampede in the National Stadium in Abuja when a job interview for the Nigerian Immigration Services drew an unprecedented crowd. Finally regaining consciousness, Mercy was informed by doctors that a bone in her neck had shifted as a result of a fracture and her spinal cord was severely damaged. Released from hospital several months later, she was given a walking frame, lumbar corset and neck collar to support her and booked for an operation on her neck.


Apart from the physical agony, bitterness toward the authorities responsible for the calamity welled up in her heart. What began as a hopeful search for employment after graduating ended up with her being partially paralyzed. As despondency continued to increase its grip, a friend recommended Mercy, a native of Kogi State, to visit The SCOAN and receive prayer before undergoing the operation. In the prayer line, as Prophet T.B. Joshua approached her and began to pray, the miraculous unfolded! Immediately after prayer in the power of the Holy Spirit, the terrible pain she had been experiencing vanished and she began to walk freely without the use of her walking aids! Apart from her physical healing, Prophet T.B. Joshua advised Mercy to remove the grudge she had in her heart toward Nigeria and promised to help her get a job. Two weeks down the line, Mercy stood before The SCOAN congregation to testify that she is completely healed and no longer needed an operation! She said that her love for the nation Nigeria had been restored and her zeal for life supernaturally replenished. Thank You, Jesus!



For five years, Ms. Catherine Moseki from Botswana had been walking the thorny path of limitation in progress. Despite possessing requisite qualifications and being a hard worker, promotion simply avoided her. She watched in anger as her junior colleagues rose above her in rank. Decided enough was enough, she came to The SCOAN in December last year where she received the Anointing Water. Back home in Botswana, she received a surprise call.


Her boss called her on a Sunday, inviting her for an interview. She was astounded but knew that the time had come for God to manifest in her life. She prayed, ministered the Anointing Water on herself and asked God to take charge. She was able to answer all questions satisfactorily and got her overdue promotion to the position of Chief Technical Assistant in the Ministry of Agriculture. To delay is indeed not to deny for those who trust in Jesus!



Mr Ganiyu Yusuf from Ondo was a handsome and jolly man and yet, under his infectious smile, lay the pitiable being of a very sad man. At his age, 60, he was still bedwetting and this humiliating affliction stole all his joy although very few knew the amount of bondage he was under. Even when time for him to marry came, he was too troubled to disclose to his lovebird and resolved not to say a thing about his embarrassing state lest he lost her. But nothing stays under wraps forever. Soon, his wife discovered and she was very bitter about it.


They became a sad couple but still hoped that one day, God would deliver them. During this period, he used to have bad dreams. He would see himself going to the toilet and before he knew it, his bed would be soaked in his own urine. One day, someone gave him the Anointing Water. Although he had little faith, he started praying, “God of Abraham, Isaac and T.B. Joshua, deliver me from bedwetting that has been disturbing me” and then, ministered the Anointing Water. To his surprise, he did not wet his bed that night. Together with his affliction went the bad dreams. Too good had his deliverance been that he had to wait for one year before he could come for his testimony – to be sure that the shame he had endured for six decades was indeed permanently gone. He advised people all over the world to look and focus on God alone and that Jesus Christ is the Healer.



“I sold my soul to satan to get what I wanted.” These were the words of Mr Frank Kpodzo, a young Ghanaian who explained how his idolatrous and struggling family background pushed him into the dark world of a secret cult. Frank was a freemason. Initially told that the ‘group’ was merely a social gathering with financial perks attached, it was only after initiation that Mr Frank realized the spiritual covenant he had entered by becoming a freemason. He was initiated in a Masonic Lodge where his clothes were removed, his face blindfolded and an oath of secrecy taken. Upon becoming a freemason member, Frank learned there were degrees or levels of influence in the cult, the highest being the 53rd degree. He himself reached the 22nd degree where his understanding was broadened to know that the covenant he had entered by joining freemasonry was to sell his soul to satan in exchange for worldly riches.

ImageSent on assignments to influence youth to join the cult, he explained how he would socialize with young people at clubs and entice them to join. By so doing, countless young people had been initiated into this satanic society through Frank’s influence. He explained that the more people he brought to join freemasonry, the higher he was upgraded in the cult. Mr Frank confessed that although he was a drunkard, smoker and womanizer before, these bad habits increased exponentially upon his initiation. Although he had money, he lacked peace as realization that he was hell-bound at death dawned on him. It was only when he discovered Emmanuel TV that he saw a greater spiritual power at work and resolved to leave the secret cult. However, with such a strong spiritual connection, merely desiring to leave was not enough.


Mr. Frank needed deliverance. Coming to The SCOAN, he received prayer from Wise Man Harry where the evil spirit, stemming from an idol his family worshipped, was exposed and expelled. Last Sunday was his return to The SCOAN to testify that after deliverance, he slept peacefully, had no more spiritual encounters with freemason members in his dreams and no more urge to smoke, drink, masturbate or womanize. He advised youth not to allow their situations to derail them to satanic deception, knowing that God’s power is above all!



In 2009, Mr Kofi Smiles from Ghana came to The SCOAN with the problem of inability to walk due to advanced osteoarthritis for more than 14 years. The only option he was given by the doctor in order for him to walk again, was to go for a knee replacement surgery. Because of the problem, he could no longer go to his work. He was forced to stay in the house all day long with only his wife assisting him do the most basic duties, such as going to the toilet. As the problem lingered, he realized that he needed to get a wheelchair because the pain was intensifying by the day. His wife advised him to start watching Emmanuel TV and, finally, he decided to come with his wife to the Arena of Liberty. He came completely unable to walk without the aid of his two crutches. After the prayer in the power of the Holy Spirit by Prophet T.B. Joshua, he started walking without the crutches, something he was unable to do for the past 14 years.


Now, it has been 5 years since he received his healing and he is still walking in the light of his testimony, all to the glory of God. Since he dropped his crutches, he has never picked them up again. He advised people to seek God in the Word of God, because the Word of God is true and sure.



Mr. Rodney Edmond Iwelu came to The SCOAN with the problem of joblessness for many years. As a young man, his desire was to be self reliant and yet, he could not get employment to make his dream come true. He had to depend on his parents for his daily upkeep. Even if he was to travel to church, his parents had to give him money for transport. His situation was so depressing that he often flirted with the idea to commit suicide.


One day, he was introduced to The SCOAN and he decided to come to worship and receive the Anointing Water. Back home, he prayed and ministered it to himself, asking God to solve his challenges and restore his destiny. Today, he is the proud owner of a cleaning company with 19 employees. He has contracts with many hotels and companies. He is free from depression and each time he wakes up in the morning, he sees purpose in life. The radical transformation in his life amazes his friends who used to know him before.  “Any evangelical item you receive from a true man of God, you must mix it with faith if God is to manifest Himself,” he said.



The case of Rebecca Idi, a young Ghanaian, baffled medical doctors. Needles had mysteriously appeared all over her body without any physical encounter or explanation. After the needles had been removed surgically, they would return five-fold, a fact attested to by an x-ray which showed the needles increasing throughout her body. It left the surgeon in charge of her case bewildered as there was no plausible scientific reason for the phenomena. A total of 18 needles had been removed from her body but hundreds more returned, causing Rebecca excruciating pain and discomfort on a daily basis. She was forced to leave school and stay isolated at home because of the strange condition.


After Rebecca was taken to a spiritualist in Ghana, her case only seemed to worsen. It was at this point that a family friend recommended she be bought to The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria. Addressing her situation, Prophet T.B. Joshua stated that the needles had entered her body through an incantation inspired by evil spirits and thus, only they could only leave through a command in the power of the Holy Spirit. He further explained that when your situation has become a curse, it is beyond mere natural or medical help; it requires Divine intervention. Later on, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for the young girl who instantly fell to the ground.


At that moment, she explained that she felt a strange force leaving her body! Rushing to the toilet, the elated Ghanaian began checking her body and screamed for joy. All signs and traces of the needles that she formerly felt in her body, alongside the excruciating pain that accompanied it, had disappeared in a glorious instant! Returning to the congregation, she joyfully testified that she could no longer feel the pricking of the mysterious needles and her body felt light! A Ghanaian medical doctor from the congregation came forward to check Rebecca, testifying that she had never heard of such a case and praising God for His miraculous intervention. “Where are the needles?” a delighted Rebecca asked the congregation, stunned that God had removed in a moment what had plagued her life and baffled medical doctors for years. Thank You, Jesus Christ!!!



Imagine a family where everyone – mother, sisters and aunts – are all prostitutes. As detesting as it may sound, this was the case with Miss Francisca whose family came bound and chained to the horrible spirit of prostitution, stemming from an idol that was worshipped from generation to generation. While Francisca was still very young, she saw her mother and aunt doing prostitution. Soon, the cycle continued in her own life as she also became a prostitute, sometimes meeting with more than 15 men in a single day. She carried demonic powers in her body which she employed to manipulate men. Any man who saw her tattoo emblazoned on her upper arm and had lustful intent towards her would easily be seduced. Each man she slept with would feel the negative repercussions in their lives, careers and relationships. She carried more lethal powers in her leg. It was while she was wantonly sleeping with various men, that one day, he encountered God through Prophet T.B. Joshua in a dream. The man of God accosted her to stop prostituting. In search of an answer to the strange encounter, she came to The SCOAN where the evil spirit in her spoke out and was eventually cast out in the name of Jesus Christ. Since that day, she has been free and the urge for men has left her.


While she was still having the spirit of prostitution, a woman used to appear to her in her dreams, deceiving her that her biological mother was not her mother. This made her to develop hatred for her mother. Now that she is free, she has started seeing her mother as a real mother in her life. Her mother confirmed coming from an idol worshipping family. She got married at the age of 15 and gave birth to two children to her first husband. With another man, she got another two children. After leaving her second marriage, she went on to marry her third husband and from there she became a prostitute. She would meet up to five men in a day. Miss Francisca also came with her sisters all of whom confessed to being prostitutes. They asked for prayer so that they could be delivered from the demonic attack.


After enjoying a free life since her deliverance last week, she urged all her friends who are into prostitution to seek God and receive their own deliverance so that they can live a godly life.



Olufunke Alao came with her daughters to The SCOAN to testify to the goodness of God. Last month, she came to The SCOAN to worship. She was holding her Nigerian flag as is the tradition at The SCOAN. During the mass prayer, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, encouraged people to keep their flags in their homes, offices or cars.


She placed hers in her car and one day, on her way to Akure for an appointment, she had a rude awakening. She saw people running for their lives. When she peered through her window to see what was going on, she discovered that there was an ambush. A gang of heavily armed men brandishing totting guns was walking from car to car robbing the shocked motorists. She started praying for God to deliver her. When they got to her car, they ordered her to wind down the glass. She did so while uttering prayer of faith when suddenly one of them screamed, “She is Joshua’s daughter, can’t you see the flag and Anointing Sticker. So, leave her alone”. Immediately, they ran away, leaving her alone and safe. She said that her security was in God alone and people must take seriously what God’s servants say.



Mr Awet Kebedom from Eritrea had been watching Emmanuel TV and had seen the deliverances that took place at The SCOAN. One day, his friend brought Anointing Water and Anointing Sticker for him from The SCOAN. He placed the Anointing Sticker on his car and he ministered the Anointing Water on a daily basis.


One day, while driving, he made a u-turn and suddenly a car that was speeding behind him smashed into it. His car was utterly destroyed in the collision yet he was completely protected by the Lord. He said that with this Anointing Water and Anointing Sticker, he could feel the presence of God. He showed the picture of the seriously damaged car beyond repair. In fact, he was unconscious for about seven hours before he finally woke up and found himself in the ICU with bruised kidney and fractured ribs. After ministering the Anointing Water, he was totally recovered and he can now drive again to the glory of God. With all these experiences, he calls the Anointing Water and Anointing Sticker ‘the signature of God’.



Mr Victor Richmond Sagoe from Ghana came to The SCOAN with his mother and received a message of prophecy by Prophet T.B. Joshua who exposed how the foundation of their family was crumbling due to a terrible spirit of stealing that had crippled his social and educational life.


Right from when he had known himself, he realised he had the embarrassing urge of stealing things around him. Coming from a well-to-do family, he never actually lacked anything and was always sponsored by his father to attain the highest levels of education. Even as he was in one of the best and most expensive universities in Ghana, he continued stealing. As his bad habit of kleptomania developed and matured, his loot became more expensive until he finally stole his mother’s jewellery worth hundreds of thousands of US Dollars. As his mother discovered that he was the one that had stolen and sold her precious gold coins which she inherited from her mother, she called for the authorities to arrest her own son!


Instead of being reformed, it was like he had graduated to a higher level in the craft. He had no intentions of stopping his dreadful vice. Becoming a professional, he started stealing things of greater value and would only trade them for things of no lasting value. He became a money squanderer, spending money on marijuana, alcohol, designer clothes and living a wasteful lifestyle. He would especially concentrate on stealing from people he knew, getting close to them and stealing, knowing that they would never suspect their closest friend to be the mastermind behind these heinous acts. He also discovered the knack for opening locked doors and padlocks. When he was moved to a different school, he tried to stay away from any friends, thinking that he would be able to maintain his focus by doing so. As he gained his first friend in the new place, his acts of stealing resumed once again. This time around, it grew even worse, pushing Victor to enter fraudulent business on internet. He started defrauding innocent victims of big amounts of money by impersonation and pretense. His condition became so severe that his mother, as a final solution, decided to bring him to The SCOAN and the Holy Spirit located them through the prophecy given by Prophet T.B. Joshua.


Confirming to the former notoriety of his son tearfully, his father, a police officer working for the UN, explained how he once had him arrested.  As Victor and family returned to The SCOAN a week later, he testified that all thoughts of stealing and theft had completely left him and he is now like a newborn baby. He advised youths reeling under the weight of his former lifestyle to avoid wrong influence and turn to God. His mother, joining to testify to the goodness of God, advised people to trust in the Lord with all their heart.



The first time Mr Friday Joshua Achema came to The SCOAN, he hid himself. Although he knew he was the one Prophet T.B. Joshua was referring to when he called out for a witchdoctor to come out, he refused. Instead, he sneaked out and went home to fast and pray; deceiving himself that his diabolical powers would leave him. It never occurred to him that it would require powers from above to set him free. When he returned during a prophetic service the following week, the man of God approached him on the same issue. He later sent evangelists with the witchdoctor to go and destroy his shrine in the power of the Holy Spirit.


Testifying, Mr Achema who was accompanied by members of his family, displayed his paraphernalia – the diabolical artillery he used to destroy people’s destinies, bring people counterfeit breakthroughs and cause harm to unsuspecting souls. He also brought out an oracle which people consulted. Along with it came red feathers he used to inflict sadness in people’s lives. Among other things, he had powers to influence court decisions including serious cases of murder. All he would do was evoke evil spirits to enter the presiding officers. People would be seeing his clients speaking, but in reality it was the oracle doing the talking which they didn’t know. If people came to him looking for fruit of the womb, he would give them children from the marine world after performing various sacrifices.


He would defraud his clients by asking them to bring materials they would not be able to find. For example, he would ask them to bring gorilla hair.  If the person said he could not, he would offer to travel out to a different country where he would get the hair. He would use this as justification for charging high prices. However, in reality, such bizarre items were never actually used but only requested so as to provide a platform for effective fraud.


As someone who had experienced a lot in the kingdom of darkness, he advised people those who are into any dubious character to change and follow Jesus because everything is vanity. ‘Have faith and trust in God who is able to do all things because the power of darkness would fail you’ he said.

Prophet TB JoshuaLast Sunday’s service was another awe-inspiring experience for those that congregated at The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria and viewers of Emmanuel TV. Prophet T.B. Joshua preached and taught the Gospel with power, emphasising on the need for ministers of God and Christians to recognise that demons are responsible for their calamities. He said fighting such entities, therefore, needs to be spiritual or the battle will be in futility.

Prophet T.B. Joshua said, “If we fail to realise that there are powers that cause people to be bowed down in bondage, we are fighting the wrong battle. You know what I mean by bondage or poverty. When it comes, it arrests you; it ties you down. Bondage could be temptation, infirmity, all kinds of sickness, crisis, challenges or the situation you are facing and keep talking about. When you fight the wrong battle, the battle will continue”.

Commenting on true Christianity, the prophet said that religious people are without spirituality whereas Christians are born of the Spirit of God. “We are only made Christians by living in the Word of God and by the Word living in us. We are made in our hearts to be Christians. That is, Christianity lies in the heart,” he said. Later, he led mass prayer during which contrary spirits tormenting people’s lives were exposed and cast out at the mention of the name, Jesus Christ.


Wise Man Racine had earlier opened the service with the message: Put on The New Man. The message was a call on Christians to cast away their old self and become new creations in Christ Jesus through being born again. He emphasized that no matter how one conditioned oneself from childbirth, one needs to be born again.

“We need to put on the new man, the new Self who is renewed in knowledge, wisdom, glory, ability, strength, power and grace in the image of his Creator.  We put on the new man by renewing of our mind with God’s Word and submitting our body to the authority of that Word. When you believe in Christ-Jesus, the Son of the Living God, you become a possessor of the Father’s nature. The Christian, having been born again, puts on the new man- Jesus Christ,” he said, citing a number of Books including John 5:14, Ephesians 4:22-24, Galatians 5:16,25, and Acts 11:26, among others.


Many people who received the divine touch of God in various areas of their lives through The SCOAN came on Sunday to glorify His mightiness and thank Him for His everlasting faithfulness. Below are just a few of the testimonies:


KATERINA & EMMANUEL JOSHUA FROM UKMr and Mrs Emmanuel Joshua Peter who reside in the UK came to testify to the greatness of God as Healer and Provider of His people. Mr Peter told his story of how poverty hit him while living in his native country of Nigeria. While he was struggling with life, he was involved in a road accident and injured his knee. His aunt advised him to visit The SCOAN for God’s intervention. During mass prayer, as Prophet T.B. Joshua was praying, he received his healing. A few weeks later he was granted a visa to Germany where favours followed him everywhere he went. He got a job and his salary increased every month. Two years later, he married his sweetheart and they continued praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV.  Although his employer promised to make him manager of the company, he decided to move to the UK and God established him in business there. He started congregating with The SCOAN fellowship in London and since then, the fountain of blessings has never ceased. He was able to build a big house and drives a brand new car.




Humiliated by years of childlessness, Chief and Mrs Anthony Agalivie from Delta, Nigeria donned unmistakable smiles as they stepped forward to testify how God had intervened in their lives. They had been literally written off as potential parents. For 12 years after their wedding, they cried and moaned over their failure to have a baby. They travelled near and far – from one witchdoctor to another and from one church to the next – during which huge sums of money were extorted from them. Chief Agalivie counted over 100 witchdoctors and spiritualists he had visited, all in a futile struggle for the fruit of the womb. Mrs Agalivie described the years as a period of agony and shame. They had shed tears in the closed doors of their bedroom until their eyes ran dry.

Strangely for the couple, doctors could not diagnose anything wrong. Whenever Mrs Agalivie conceived, she would lose the pregnancy. In 2012, she was diagnosed with a hormonal imbalance. One day, as she watched Emmanuel TV, she saw a woman of 53 years testify how she had conceived and delivered a child after using the Anointing Water.  She realised that and sought the divine their case was not unredeemable if they attended a living church touch of God through His anointed servant. In May 2013, she came with her husband to The SCOAN during which the demon behind their childlessness was exposed and they received deliverance.

That night, Mrs Agalivie had a dream. She saw that they were in The SCOAN and a child walked from the altar to her and said, “Give me your hand. I am an Angel sent to you from God to deliver you from barrenness”. When she woke up, she was filled with joy. That month, after meeting with her husband, she became pregnant. She showed her pregnancy to the congregation as evidence of God’s triumph over the demonic influence that had existed in the couple’s life. Chief Agalivie encouraged the congregation by stating that it is never too late for God.

During the mass prayer with Prophet T.B. Joshua, we witnessed a young boy vomiting a calabash (gourd), a charm, WITCH DOCTOR SONalong with poisonous substances. After the calabash (gourd) was vomited out, it began to move on the floor, untouched by human hands. Some moments later, it burst open and poisonous substances began to ooze out of it.
To the great surprise of the congregation, we learned that the boy was the 14 year old son of Mr Adeyemo, the 80 year old witch doctor who had been delivered a few weeks ago alongside his 35 year old wife. The wife and witch doctor had each vomited 3 cowries during the course of prayer with Prophet T.B. Joshua in previous services. After their deliverance, they said they had tried convincing the boy to come to The SCOAN for deliverance but had been unsuccessful due to the evil powers the calabash (gourd) had given to him.

Mr Adeyemo had spiritually commanded the calabash (gourd) into his son, in the same manner he had commanded the cowries into himself and his wife, in order to give him boldness to carry out evil acts and become a powerful witch doctor. His plan was for his son to take over the witch doctor practice after he had passed away but after receiving deliverance, Mr Adeyemo was desperate for his son to receive the same deliverance and give his life to Jesus Christ. It was with the pressure of his wife that his son agreed to come to The SCOAN where we witnessed his deliverance live. To God be the glory!


Twenty-six members of the Ayebabogha family came to The SCOAN to say, Thank You, Jesus! Walking joyfully to the front of the altar, the family shared how the life of their son and brother, Mr Gift Ayebabogha, a Nigerian Police Force Officer was spared through the medium of the Anointing Water. At work one morning, he was attacked by armed robbers and shot at multiple times, forcing his intestines out of his body. He was rushed to the hospital where an operation was performed and the family testified that thanks to the power of God at work in the Anointing Water which he had ministered that morning, his life was saved.

MR GIFT AYEBABOA&FAMILYSevere post-operation complications developed and Mr Gift became unable to pass urine normally. A catheter had to be attached. Upon hearing his heartrending story, Prophet T.B. Joshua, moved with compassion, arranged for Mr Gift to be taken to India for a specialist operation and sponsored the entire trip. Having recuperated from his successful surgery in India, Mr Gift said, “The man of God, who did not even know me, used his resources and sent me for specialist medication abroad where my condition was corrected and restored”. To God be the glory.


MR KENNETH NDOVIEMr Kenneth Ndovie from Malawi was reeling from one catastrophe to another until the mercy of God touched him through the medium of the Anointing Water. He was facing financial crisis after he had lost his job and decided to go into business in an effort to make ends meet. One day, as he was travelling for business, he got a shocking call that his house had caught fire and had been gutted. He fainted upon hearing the news and people had to carry him home. Everything was destroyed but surprisingly, his Emmanuel TV decoder was spared. This encouraged his faith in the midst of calamity and he continued to pray with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV. Many of his friends had deserted him because of his poverty. No one wanted to associate with him. One day, a good friend lent him some money. Instead of investing it in his business, he decided to use it for transport and came to The SCOAN. He received the Anointing Water and when he returned home, all closed doors swung open. He received a contract as a big distributor of airtime credit for one of the major telecommunication companies in the country. Since that time, he has built a five bedroom house on eight plots of land, replete with a swimming pool. Not only that, he has a fleet of cars his staff use for distribution of recharge vouchers. Borrowing a leaf from the man of God Prophet T.B. Joshua, he has likewise gone into charitable activities and is helping the poor.

During the time of prophecy in the live service the previous week, Prophet T.B. Joshua had encountered Miss Joana Agboga from Abuja, Nigeria and the darkness in her was immediately exposed. A young lady that was calmly standing in the congregation moments before was suddenly aggressively fighting as the demon within her began to manifest.

 Now delivered from the evil spirit, Miss Joana Agboga stood before the congregation of The SCOAN to thank God for His intervention in her life. A beautiful young girl from a wealthy home, she explained that the evil spirit had caused her to bedwet since the age of five. Even in boarding school, her classmates would cover up for her when she bedwet in the night. The evil spirit also made her to steal even though she never lacked materially or financially. It stifled her academic progress as her mind would blackout during examinations. The evil spirit also made her to be very stubborn and hot-tempered, throwing tantrums. She previously used to avoid watching Emmanuel TV, preferring to watch movies or music videos but now realised that she did not like to see people being saved, healed and set free because what was inside her was opposite to the light of God. Addressing the issue of deliverance, Prophet T.B. Joshua, said, “If we fail to realise that there are powers that cause people to be bowed down in bondage, we are fighting the wrong battle”.

After her deliverance in the power of the Holy Spirit from the spirit that scattered her destiny, Joana happily declared that she no longer experiences bedwetting or the urge to steal. Equally overjoyed, her mother, Mrs Elizabeth Agboga stood by her side to thank God for the transformation in her daughter’s life. Emphasizing the importance of maintaining the miracle, Prophet T.B. Joshua told her that on the last day, she will stand to testify how she helped her daughter maintain her deliverance.

Perhaps the most moving event of the day was the testimony of Mr Lucky, made possible by the singular act of Mr Lucky & Mr Chukskindness of one of the heads of security at The SCOAN. Mr Lucky explained that in 2008, he was busy working as a loading boy in a Lagos market place, assisting women to carry their goods. One day, he saw a woman in a pool of blood. A vehicle had run her down and she was about to die. Having little money with him, he felt compassion for the woman and used the money to take the woman to the hospital. Arriving at the hospital, the woman died and he was arrested for her murder. He had been in prison for five and a half years. It was while there that he encountered a man wearing one of the yet-to-be released Faith Bracelets from Prophet T.B. Joshua. The stranger told him to hold the hand with the bracelet and pray with him, believing God for his heart’s desire. That night, he had a dream of Prophet T.B. Joshua, telling him that he would be set free. Miraculously, 11 days later, he was released from the prison. He headed straight to The SCOAN with only the clothes on his back.  It was there that one of the heads of security discovered him crying by the church premises after unsuccessfully trying to enter the packed auditorium. He had all the looks of a mad man; he had unkempt hair, was dirty and was wearing rags. After listening to his story, instead of chasing him away, the SCOAN security man bathed him, bought him a new pair of trousers, shirt and sandals, and gave him 500 naira. He then got him a seat inside the church so he could partake of the service. After listening to the story, Prophet T.B. Joshua, touched by the bold step of kindness demonstrated by the security man, stated that a sum of 5 million naira would be allocated to him to continue to assist others as he has done today, saying he knows this is not the first time he had been assisting others in such a Godly way.

“Don’t stop doing good,’ he said.

If we say we are Christians, all our concerns, aspirations and heart desires must be subject to the Gospel, by works of charity, knowing that we lose nothing by doing that which pleases God.

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


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


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


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


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

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



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



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


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

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



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


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

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


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


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



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


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



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


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


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


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


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



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


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


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


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


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


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



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


The service closed with a Mass Payer ministered by the Wise Men. Praise God!
