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

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

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

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

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






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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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






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

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

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

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

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

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

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



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

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

her examinations due to lack of concentration.Image

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

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

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

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

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

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




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

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





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

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



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

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

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





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

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

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

Emmanuel! God With Us!

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



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



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

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

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

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

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

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



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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



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

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

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

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



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

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

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

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

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

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



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

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

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

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

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

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



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

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

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

Last Sunday service was a glorious occasion to behold. From the wonders and miracles to the prophetic message, the exaltation of the Almighty God was elating. The prayer line hosted people from around the world seeking God’s intervention in their lives. They were prayed for by the wise men, healed and delivered in Jesus’ name. 

0 - T.B.J The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, as usual, prophesied to many of the congregants – striking at the root of their problems. In his message, the prophet re-iterated his previous message: ‘Do Not Tempt The Devil To Tempt You’.


In his message for the day, Prophet T.B. Joshua said one can be anointed with God’s gifts but that the challenge is how to maintain such grace. He said, “Anyone can be sent to preach but not everyone can maintain that grace. To maintain the grace is the issue.  Anyone can buy a car but not everyone can maintain it. If you had maintained the blessing of God you would not be complaining today.”

He said that the blessing of God attracts enemies and persecution and that when blessing comes, persecution comes. “The blessing of God is honey. When you drop honey or sugar on the floor, before you know it, ants from the East, South, West, North will come and eat the honey. Honey is the blessing of God; the ants come and look for it.” He, however, said man must not dwell on those that are against him but to love them and pray for them. Therefore, “It is a wrong prayer for your enemy to die. If they are not there, how will you grow?  You cannot grow in the face of pleasure; it is in a place of difficulty that you grow”, he concluded.

Many people came out to glorify God for the dramatic changes they had experienced in their lives. It is our desire that as you read these testimonies, your faith will be lifted up to place you in a position for your own miracle, in Jesus’ name.



 1 - PRINCESS RITA NGBEThe devil gives with one hand and, before you know it, he snatches it back with the other and your situation becomes worse. Princess Rita Ngbe from Cross River, Nigeria is a living example.

She is also a classic case of how, if left to themselves without parental guidance, children’s minds can be defiled and become the devil’s workshop for manufacturing his deadliest arsenal.

Ms Ngbe, 29, came to The SCOAN to testify concerning the deliverance she received the previous week. Recounting her story, she said it all began when she was just 12 years old. She was not being monitored by her parents and became obstinate.

She would be very stubborn and preferred being inside her room. She would lock her room to make sure she was all alone. During those times, she would be reading books, some of which were too much above her age.

On one particular afternoon, while inside the room, a spirit that looked like a small blood-red chameleon appeared to her. The spirit told her it wanted to be her friend and they started to play. She grew up day by day with this being within her, developing her relationship with it unbeknown to any other person. “Because my parents did not pay any attention to me, I did not bother telling them anything about this strange phenomenon,” she said.

Later, the reptile began to give her instructions to initiate other children by rubbing white clay on them. When rubbed, the children would begin to also witness visions of the same red reptile.

Save for three girls whose parents were very prayerful, she initiated all girls that were put under her care in the neighbourhood and warned them never to tell anyone about it, threatening to beat them if they did.

When she entered secondary school, people started accusing her of belonging to a cult because of the way and manner she conducted herself and more especially the company she kept. Little did they know that she possessed powers higher than any cultist would boast to have.

“This made me annoyed because with the powers I had, it was disrespectful to compare me with a cultist. If I felt threatened or harassed by the lecturers or some bullies, I would say, ‘Do you know who I am? You will see!’ and they would run away.”

By worshipping the red reptile, she said, one would be very brilliant in class and be rich but would not be allowed to get married. She would be allowed to live with a man and have children but never to settle down with anyone. She was told never to fall in love.

As Ms Ngbe was growing up and following the instructions of the spirit, she would graduate spiritually and become sophisticated in her powers. She was able to send signals to make people fall in love. She didn’t even need to see the people in order to match-make them. Those people would get married but after two to three months, the marriage would bitterly break up.

But, thank God, she was not able to manipulate strong Christians but only corrupt hearts that would tell lies and fornicate because she had the power to control what people thought with their minds. To those who were innocent, naïve, she would send a lie to them and once they had lied, they were initiated.

She had power in her nails, eyes and forehead. Her eyes had so much power that if she looked at a mirror intently, the mirror would crack. She also had power in her forehead for deceiving people to believe that she was a good person.

“I had cars, houses and cash in my bank. Money was not a problem and I walked with authority,” she said. But it was not to be forever. She fell in love, broke the covenant she had with the devil and fell from her position. The fall was catastrophic. She found herself in jail on an office matter and ended up selling her two expensive cars – a Hummer bus and a Peugeot 607 for a paltry seventy-thousand Naira only. 

In fact, she did not come to The SCOAN in search of deliverance, rather breakthrough so that she would financially be back on her feet. When she came to The SCOAN, she felt very uncomfortable as the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua was preaching love. According to her, she would have been more relaxed if he had been preaching hatred.

At The SCOAN, she was arranged at the prayer line. She brought out her pictures for the wise men to pray for but she was surprised as they did not touch the documents but rather touched her head (her crown). She saw beams of light and heard a voice telling her to confess and be free. Later, she found herself on the floor.

After her deliverance, the good sleep she had been denied for many years has returned to her. In her dreams, she would see herself in a group of people and also strange animals which she would communicate with. All these have gone after her deliverance.

She warned that satan gives and takes away in a jiffy. “I was excellent, very brilliant at school and rapidly rose in my career but when satan chose to take it away, he took it all away in one day. Everything about me collapsed and I ended up in prison,” she said.

She was not without advice: “Parents, watch your children. An idle mind is the workshop of the devil. For the rest of you with strange habits, go to a living church and receive your deliverance. There is nothing higher than God Almighty.”


2 - MR IKOLO SYLVESTER [SMOKING] Another person who came to testify to the glory of God was Mr Ikolo Sylvester. He had been smoking for 14 years. He had tried to stop it on his own but he couldn’t. His addiction was so chronic that if he didn’t smoke marijuana, he couldn’t eat.

“I was a chain smoker and smoked two packs of cigarettes and weed each day,” he said. As a result of the illicit substance, Mr Ikolo was arrested several times. During that period, he was very lean – he ate but it didn’t show. As a result of the problem, he became violent towards most people. One day he fell sick from a malarial attack and was admitted to the hospital.

While there, one of the patients was visited by a friend – a soldier. The visitor brought his friend the Anointing Water and ministered it on him. He became curious and interested and begged the soldier to spray a little on him. As the good visitor ministered the Anointing Water on him, Mr Ikolo prayed in his heart in Jesus’ name that God should set him free from his addiction.

That ended a long time addiction to chain-smoking and taking of illicit substances. “I am now free from the spirit of smoking and the urge for cigarettes and marijuana/weed is all but gone,” he shouted to the glory of God. He advised people to come closer to God and have faith in Him.



3 - MR EMOITOLOGA GODDAY [PROMOTION] Mr Emoitologa Godday came all the way from Adamawa State, Nigeria to share his wonderful testimony. He had worked for the Ministry of Education as the Chief Education Officer for years without any promotion. Many people under him would be promoted but that was never the case with him.

For four times, he applied for the position of Assistant Director of Education but the effort bore no result. He decided to come to The SCOAN and by the grace of God, he received the Anointing Water.

When he was invited for an interview, he ministered it on his documents in Jesus’ name and prayed that he be considered for the position. He believed in his heart that he would be among the best ten for the promotion exam and, to the glory of God, he passed the exam and he was promoted to be the Assistant Director of Education. He said that all the candidates that had used his Anointing Water passed the interviews as well. He showed the congregation the promotion letter he received from the Ministry of Education, Nigeria with his name listed as number 9.

“Everyone saw me minister the Anointing Water and I boastfully told them that I would pass. Now that God has proven Himself true through the medium, people call me ‘Anointing Water Product’,” he said.


 4 - MISS FAVOUR YAJE [BEDWETTING]Next to take her turn to glorify God was Miss Favour Yaje from Cameroon who was delivered from the spirits of masturbation and bedwetting that had haunted her for more than 20 years. She said she would dream herself as a teenager. In her dreams, she would be desperate to use the lavatory and would do such, not knowing that she was actually urinating in her bed. To void this, she would struggle to keep herself awake which was impossible.

A young woman who left home aged 12 for insisting to read her Bible over the family’s beliefs in idol worshipping, she had no person to talk to. She single-handedly fought it but to no avail. “There was a particular time that I would have this problem every month,” she said.

As if that was not enough, she also had the problem of masturbation for 3 years. The problem tormented her so seriously that she could no longer pray, saying she could masturbate up to three times in a day. “I never got satisfied. Each action led to another all the time,” she said.

One day, while she was watching Emmanuel TV, she touched the screen, became angry at her problems and prayed along with Prophet T.B. Joshua. Suddenly, she couldn’t control herself and didn’t remember what happened.  When night came she had the same dream but to her amazement when she woke up, she found out that she had not wet the bed.

She received her deliverance two years ago and when Jesus delivered her, He delivered her effectually. Masturbation has become a long forgotten story. She advises: “Shame belongs to the devil. We should be open and be ready to expose our problems, so that we can be delivered. Parents, love your children so that they can confide in you.”


5 - JOHN WARIFINOWEI [RECONCILIATION] Sunday was also a happy day for the family of Mr John Warifinowei who came to The SCOAN to testify how a prophecy by Prophet T.B. Joshua had reunited his family.

Mr Warifinowei received the prophecy two weeks ago when the man of God pointed him out and asked him to ‘forgive the woman’.  He came back to The SCOAN the following week, revealing that the person referred to in the prophecy was his mother whom he had always believed to be a witch.

He said his belief stemmed from the fact that many spiritualists, who presented themselves as prophets, had told him that his mother was the cause of all the hardship the family was passing through. The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, declared that his mother was not a witch and advised the whole family to go on their knees and ask the mother for forgiveness.

Mr Warifinowei explained that when they got home that Sunday, they experienced joy in their family for the first time in ten years. Previously, he said, they would not even allow the mother to visit their homes as they were all afraid of being bewitched. 

His wife equally testified to the massive change the prophesy had brought to their home.  “For the first time, our children played with their grandmother,” she said, fighting tears of joy. She advised the congregants and viewers to always seek the voice of God and to avoid spiritualists who, she said, are never up to anything good but to ruin homes.

She said the meal they had had at The SCOAN’s restaurant soon after the reconciliation, was their first with the mother in all those years as they had always avoided and condemned her to a life of seclusion.

The mother could not hide her joy at being reconciled with her children, thanking God for using the man of God to rebuild the broken home.


6 - MRS AMI & FAMILY Mrs Amy Anyadimaju and family came to The SCOAN following the deliverance she had received through Wise Man Harry.

Amy grew up without much parental care. She grew up believing that her father was dead according to what her mother had told her. As a result, she started running away from home. She ran away from school and she got raped at the age of six years. Since that incident, she started having the urge to be around men and she went too far to the extent that she became addicted to hard drugs.

She started selling herself and sleeping around with up to 15 men in a single night to raise money for drugs and her upkeep. It was during such escapades that she met with a man at a nightclub who later became the father of her three kids.

When she was six months pregnant, she ran away from her husband’s house and started prostituting with her pregnancy. After giving birth to her son, her mother took her home. However she was still craving for men and she decided to dump the 3-day-old child at home with her mother and returned to prostitution.

She ran away for almost two years from her family and nobody knew where she was. At the age of 18, she got pregnant for her third child. In her pregnancy, she went to Cape Town and she signed an agreement to sell the baby while he was still in her womb.

She also started to sell herself on the Internet to find clients from other countries through facebook. She recalled travelling to countries such as USA, Australia, UK and many more countries just to keep a date with an internet lover. It was during such trips abroad that she ran into a group of 20 men who slept with her in turn until she almost passed away.

She also recounted that one of the men she slept with suddenly turned to a snake on her. The other experience was that while sleeping with another man, he turned to a lion right on top of her.

On her facebook account, she said, she had 4,580 friends and men visiting her page just to download her obscene pictures. “Anytime I logged on to my Facebook account. I would receive hundreds of messages at a time and some men would offer me whatever I asked for,” she said.

After her deliverance, she felt ashamed of her past life as a prostitute and drug addict. Now, she no longer craves for men, cigarettes and drugs and instead longs for a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. She said: “I’m indeed delivered. I advise all the youth to finish their education and listen to their parents. Stay away from facebook.”

Following this startling cyber revelation, Prophet T.B. Joshua called out the congregation to pray for the children and youth all over the world to be cautious of social networks.


7 - HRH BOKOLO WARI & COMMUNITY His Royal Highness Bokolo Wari from Obiogu Kingdom, Niger-Delta, Nigeria came to The SCOAN purposely to seek God’s intervention concerning issues of idol worshipping and witchcraft that had torn his kingdom apart for over 230 years.

He was previously prophesied to by Prophet T.B. Joshua about a ‘court case which was going on appeal and a certain woman whom the community had falsely accused of being a witch’.

HRH Bokolo confessed that the two prophecies surprised him because he had never met the prophet.

He confirmed the prophecies to be true and said the first one was his main reason for visiting The SCOAN.

He explained that an eight-year-old girl had mysteriously entered a young man’s room and slept by his side. The door was securely locked but the young girl still entered the room. When they caught and questioned her, she confessed that she used to go for witchcraft meetings at night spiritually and started pointing to those who she claimed were witches and wizards in the community.

Because of this issue, his sister had attempted to commit suicide. One of the members of the community had died over this issue, while another one had ran into the forest and had not been seen ‘til this moment. He further explained that the community tortured the accused person before their bodies were buried. He said that a spiritualist who claimed to be a prophet had confirmed the confession of the young girl.

He said that there was no progress in the community because of the issue of witchcraft accusations and that he wanted the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua to intercede on behalf of the community.  

Together with King Bokolo Wari and Chief Peter were two women who were accused of being witches.

Later on, the man of God came into the matter. Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied that there would be a great and positive change in his family. He also declared that the young lady who had pointed fingers to community members was not a witch but was only afflicted and therefore, everything she had said should be considered falsehood.

The whole family of Chief Ogburu went on their knees to beg their mother for forgiveness for accusing her falsely of being a witch. Then, the family thanked the man of God for intervening in their affair.

These are but a few of the many testimonies and the man of God concluded his sermon of the day by prophetically advising the congregation and viewers to always seek the face of God in all issues as solution to root of their problems, citing the case of the man at the Beautiful gate: “Look at the man at the Beautiful Gate who was there to collect money. Peter and John said, ‘Silver and Gold, I do not have. Rise up and walk’. The lame man thought that he was not there for the miracle but for money. God knew that money couldn’t solve the problem.”

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

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

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

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

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

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



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


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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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


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

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



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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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


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

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

TB JoshuaThe Live Saturday and Sunday Services started like any other service in the past, but there was a huge package of surprises in the unfolding. True to The SCOAN culture, the service was inundated with interesting testimonies of healings, breakthroughs, mending of relationships and deliverance from demonic attacks. As can be seen from the accounts rendered hereon, the Anointing Water which is one medium God has so endowed the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua with to foster his ministry of healing and deliverance from evil influences has continued to bless people in every area of their needs. Encouraged by the great testimonies resulting from the use of the Anointing Water and the Anointing Stickers, Prophet T.B. Joshua decided to further bless the congregation, indeed the world with yet a new branded Anointing Water and a pair of Anointing Stickers with an improved booklet that explains the nitty-gritty and the origin of these blessed products. After a powerful and inspiring sermon delivered by Wise man Harry on the subject ‘No Neutral Source,’ Prophet T.B. Joshua addressed two major issues dealing with peoples’ misconception of appearances as opposed to true godliness. In summary he said that ‘Faith is of man’s spirit, not of his flesh or body’. Then, came the big surprise: Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke briefly of his upcoming 50th Birthday which falls on June 12. He said that God had inspired him to bless the people in a very special way to mark the occasion and he went ahead to distribute the new branded Anointing Water and a couple of beautiful Anointing Stickers freely to all. God Almighty and the heavenly hosts endorsed the release and confirmed that the prophet’s action was indeed ordered from above. This was evidenced by uncontrollable manifestations of people that came in contact with the Anointing Water and the Anointing Stickers even before ministering them. Indeed, God is still with us.
Sermon By Wise man Harry
Life is a warfare. In a warfare, there are many battles to fight.WISE MAN HARRY When you look at people today, you will see that some are battling with their bills, some with their sickness, while some are fighting to make it in life. It takes the grace of God to realize that the way you fight these battles determines who you are before God. Just as there are two sides to a coin, so also there are two sources in this world: God and satan. Whether you believe it or not, there is no neutral source because there is no neutral kingdom. You can become great in life, in terms of position, money and fame, but the source of your greatness will be either from God or satan. Genesis 14:14-16,21-23. This is all about Father Abraham and his determination to make God Almighty his only source.
To be great born of God is to derive your resources from God, while to be great born of satan is to derive your resources from satan.
When God is the source of your strength, no one can be against you. When God is the source of your strength, you and God are majority. Abram, with the help of God, was able to defeat his enemies and recover all the goods and set the captives free.

One thing we need to remember is that Satan’s greatest interest is to overthrow our relationship to God as a Father. To do that, satan always uses our situation. This is why we should not be misled by our situation. Our situation could be poverty or sickness. Outward affliction and poverty are the great arguments satan uses to disturb the children of God. Therefore, as children of God, it is better to live poorly on the fruits of God’s goodness than to live plentifully upon the products of our own sin. Remember that everything big starts little. If anything big starts big, it calls for concern. Those who fail to take these tiny steps cannot trust God and understand the basic truth about faith.
MR AWALLU GABOH -DELIVERED OF BEDWETTINGMr Awallu Gaboh, a muslim had the problem of bedwetting and frequent urination for twenty years. It all started when a spirit being possessed him, which came and made love to him. The problem had made it impossible for him to get married or visit friends. His relations and friends could not understand why he would not marry. He visited several herbalists in search of solution but to no avail. Then, a friend of his gave him the Anointing Water which he ministered on his male organ and all over his body. When the spiritual wife attempted to force herself on him, he noticed that a very powerful ray of light was covering him and preventing the lady from coming close to him. After many attempts, she gave up and left. Since then, he has been free from the chronic case of bedwetting of over 20 years. Being a muslim, he said it was the first time he had entered a church (The SCOAN) but as he saw the way Prophet T.B. Joshua had treated people from all religions, he felt welcomed. He said that Prophet T.B. Joshua was sent to everyone regardless of their religion. He also changed his mind concerning getting married, stating that it was now possible.
Mr Abu Abdulazeez from Benue State had been childless for many years after marriage. The medical report stated their diagnosis of bacterial infection but his wife often told him that a certain spiritual man used to sleep with her and make love to her in the dream. Mr. Abdulazeez who is a military personnel, had the problem of addiction to alcohol for thirty-one years and could drink more than three cartons of beer in a single day and toMR ABU ABDULAZEEZ & WIFE -BARRENNESS & ALCHOLISM STOPPED worsen his situation, he always spent time in the company of his colleagues who were also habitual drinkers. After each drinking spree, he would usually lose his cell phone and end up being helped home in a state of stupor. He had attempted to quit the habit on his own but could not. He was always late to work on account of the drunkenness. On one occasion, he sleep-walked into an unfamiliar bush due to the effect of alcohol until he was saved by a man who told him that he had travelled close to Kogi State very far away from Abuja, his planned destination. He was also in the habit of returning home late at nights. He had lost three of his cars due to accidents resulting from drunkenness. One fateful day, he visited a friend and joined them in watching Emmanuel TV. He was astonished to see cases of drunkenness being delivered through the prayer of the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. He joined in the prayer by placing his hand on the screen of the television. He invited his wife to place her hand on the television and she did. As soon as she placed her hand, she fell down and started manifesting. Soon after, his wife conceived. For himself, he tried to visit his former beer parlour where he ordered for a bottle of beer but it tasted of bitters and he had to spit it out. Since then, his addiction of 31 years stopped. Today, the wife is pregnant. Mr Abdulazeez does not visit beer parlours anymore and they now enjoy a very peaceful home.
MR INNOCENT OLUCHI OCHIA -DELIVERED FROM SECRET CULTSMr Innocent Oluchi Chidozie Ochia – Imo State, Nigeria was an active member of some number of secret cults for many years. He is a graduate of Federal Polytechnic, Nekede in Imo State. He was an ardent church goer and a choir boy until one of his relations introduced him to various brands of drugs. They were into the music industry and those drugs were supposed to make him feel good and bold while on stage. Ironically, the influence of those drugs erased every passion for the things of God and he developed apathy to Christian music. He could consume large doses of those drugs every day and had to spend much of his pocket money in acquiring them. On one occasion, he had concealed himself behind the counter of a bar, smoking his weed and playing music very loud. Three beings appeared to him right there and one of them said that it could pick up his thoughts. He did not believe the being, and spoke in silence to test him. The beings responded correspondingly to prove that they could actually read his mind. They told him that they could discern that he wanted to be famous and that they could help him get to the top of his career. He asked to be helped. One of the beings stripped off and to his surprise, he saw that it was tattooed from the neck to the groin region. They started an initiation process and were making noises as if in a sex orgy. He could not stand the sight any longer and decided to walk away. He was threatened with premature death in four days if he walked out on them. He, however, tried to submit to the initiation. Back at the Polytechnic, his life took a different form. He could hear voices and interpret lyrics that he never was part of their making. He became fearless. He had no money but could get just whatever he wanted so long as he was dressed in a peculiar spiritual fashion that those beings had recommended. When he sang on stage and off-stage, he could hold people in trance and those who were unable to stand the situation had to run away. The drug addiction got so bad that he had to be sent to rehab. His academic career started diminishing. He never prayed and refused to pay his tithes any longer. He preferred to do his chores on the Sabbath day instead. He hated the things of God. Incidentally, he was invited to The SCOAN to witness the testimony of one of his aunts who had been delivered from demonic influence. He felt very uncomfortable in the church and would rather have some cigarettes and alcohol. During prayer by Wise man Daniel, he was arrested and felt the separation from the spiritual beings that had tormented him. The pain he felt on his leg also disappeared after he was touched and prayed for by the wise man. He advises the youths in particular that if they would make Heaven, they should avoid worldly affections such as smoking, doing drugs, drinking and lustfulness – telling them that Jesus Christ was not a womanizer or a drug addict.
He now enjoys reading the Bible and is eager to receive the Word of God that will inspire him.

Mr Samuel Freedom is the son of Camilla, a renowned Nollywood actress. He said he came to The SCOAN after his mother had been delivered of evil attacks and connection to the marine kingdom. He says that in a prophecy given to her by Prophet T.B. Joshua, his mother was asked where her son was. She responded that he was in Enugu and the man of God said he should be brought to The SCOAN. Previously, he had been practicing house to houseMR SAMUEL FREEDOM -SON OF NOLLYWOOD ACTRESS evangelism and praying for the sick with signs following, though he had never been delivered himself. He confessed that during that period, he had an affair with a lady from the same church where he worshipped. Thereafter, his spiritual life took a downward turn. He experienced some career failure and stagnation. Nothing was working for him; he became depressed and often heard a voice telling him to commit suicide. He began looking for alternatives; he started listening to worldly music and doing street dance. He formed a dance group and they wanted to create new moves. They researched online and found different demonic signs which they formulated into dance moves. He would have dreams where demons would teach him dance steps. He would then in turn teach others how to dance in that way. He wanted to get money; so, he searched on the internet and found the Illuminati website; he read everything on the website and saw the face of the master of the Illuminati. His first experience was an encounter with the master in a dream. The master appeared in the form of a serpent and then later transformed into a human being, giving him instructions. Thereafter, he started using some of those signs that represented Illuminati in dance steps on stage, but participants never got to know that those dance steps were glorifying demons and initiating them into the kingdom of darkness. The more the people adopted the dance steps, the more they were tormented by demons. He had a shirt with the Illuminati insignia, which he usually wore especially on stage. He had a computer game known as Prince of Persia which he always played during the day. At night, he would see himself as the character from the video game, the Prince of Persia, flying, fighting and doing everything the character in the game was doing. He was in the habit of masturbating even though he detested the act and would regret it later.
He eventually came to The SCOAN and was delivered after prayer from Wise Man Christopher. He no longer has the urge to masturbate, smoke or drink. He advised parents to keep objects of bad moral influence away from their children. He advised youth not to download worldly music on their phones. His advice to pastors was to run to God for mercy for He is a merciful God.
PASTOR PHILIP ONYEKACHUKWU- BROTHER TO CAMILLAPastor Philip Onyekachukwu of Prince of Peace Ministries International and brother of Ms Camilla, the popular Nollywood actress, said he had received a call of God and then when his finances were down, he backslid to become a nightclub Deejay. He said he was not properly taught how to maintain his walk with the Lord. He could not pay his school fees and had to abandon the ministry. He had a dream where two women put their hands inside his chest after
which he became sick. He went from one place to another in search of a solution to his sickness which doctors were unable to diagnose. Later, he returned to being a pastor, though he acknowledged that he did so without being delivered. Consequently, he experienced setback in his ministry. He said that the church would grow and then later scatter. He would also hear voices rebuking him, telling him he was never going to make it and that the church was going down. He came to The SCOAN where he was prayed for by one of the wise men and received his deliverance. He said after his deliverance, he no longer heard negative voices and also the pain he had in his body was gone.
Mrs Camilla, a Senior Nollywood Actress for 29 years said she didn’t have a hand in how, where and when she was born. She decided who she wanted to be when she came to The SCOAN. Many of her colleagues had discouraged her from coming to The SCOAN. She said, “Many of them are scared of coming to be screened by the Holy Ghost”. According to the actress, she was delivered at The SCOAN and also received a prophecy concerning her son. She brought him to The SCOAN together with her brother (Pastor Philip Onyekachukwu) for deliverance. She said she came for God to change her spiritual occasion from sin to holiness and she got it. She encouraged all to seek the face of God.
JOHN BOSCO TATTOO MANJohn Bosco from Cameroon gave a testimony of how he had a tooth problem and a woman had advised him to apply snuff tobacco as a solution to the problem. The effect of the tobacco made him feel high in spirit. He became addicted to it and eventually became very sick and lost a lot of weight. He was diagnosed with tuberculosis and gastric ulcer and reached rock bottom in life. One night, he had a dream whereby he saw the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua in his dream who prayed for him. Soon after the dream, he had a full recovery from his sicknesses and was restored back to his original self. To add to his blessing, he was also offered a good job from an offshore company with good pay and his life experienced a dramatic turnaround for the better. He was so overjoyed at the healing and blessing he received that he asked himself what he could do to

say, “Thank you”. He then called a tattoo artist and asked him to design a tattoo for him written, “Jesus Is Lord, T.B. Joshua My Prophet”. He had the tattoo inscribed across his shoulder. As he developed interest in studying the Scriptures, he came to a portion in the Book of Leviticus 19:28, which spoke against the act of putting marks of any sort on the body and immediately regretted doing the tattoo. He was so disturbed in his mind that he sent an email to the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua asking what he could do. The prophet then invited him to The SCOAN.
After sharing his experience, the man of God addressed the issue. “Just see it as one of those things on your body, not for God. If you see it like that, press forwards to serve God in Spirit and in truth. Don’t see it as a way of pleasing God. Don’t let it disturb you anymore. Put it behind you. Since you can’t remove it, leave it and continue to serve God.”
Prophet T.B. Joshua further said, “Faith is of man’s spirit, not of his flesh or body”. He advised the man that he should see the tattoo as something for his body and not for God. He said now that he had realized it was wrong, he should put it behind him and seek God. He said the tattoo had no meaning to God and is not to please God. He also advised Christians who already had tattoos and wanted to remove them, not to have them surgically removed as this was a trap of satan, which could lead to other skin complications. He concluded by saying that when we worship God in Spirit and truth, whatever we have put on our body is nullified.
DEACON DANIIEL EMOGHAWEI & WIFEDeacon Daniel Emoghawei came to The SCOAN and received a prophecy. Prophet T.B. Joshua asked him about his wife and had spoken concerning the conflict at home and the spirit of anger. Today, Deacon Daniel Emoghawei came back together with his wife to confirm the prophecy. He explained that the cause of most conflicts in the house was regarding his wife’s clothing and makeup. As a deacon, he didn’t like to see his wife with revealing clothes and heavy makeup. He further told the prophet that even on their wedding day, they had fought concerning the same matter. Apart from that, according to the husband, the wife had the spirit of anger that caused her to argue and get angry unnecessarily. His wife also spoke, complaining that they would always quarrel and never agree on anything in the house. She further said that her husband would beat her and this had heightened the tension in the marriage.
Listening to their story, Prophet T.B. Joshua expressed his belief from God’s point of view that God is Spirit and that those who want to worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and truth. Therefore, for God to hear, help or answer us, we must talk to Him in Spirit but the problem people have is that many have not been dealing with God in Spirit but in the natural.
Prophet T.B. Joshua explained that there was nothing wrong in putting on makeup but that our ideology and culture must be modified to suit Christ’s ideology. He added that if someone has the spirit of lust, whether he or she applies makeup or not does not make any difference because it is a spiritual matter and can only be resolved through being delivered.
He asked them what their position was concerning the marriage. They both said that they still loved each other as husband and wife but just wanted the conflict in their marriage to stop. Prophet T.B. Joshua encouraged the couple that there could be no understanding without misunderstanding. He said that if you ask any successful couple today about their experiences, they would tell you that they passed through the shadow of death before they arrived at a successful marriage. T.B. Joshua concluded by advising, “There is a time to fight and there is a time to embrace each other. No matter what happens, God has something to say, even in a broken situation. Therefore, we should always ask for God’s opinion concerning all things”.
The new brand of Anointing Water was officially launched. People were falling under the anointing of God upon receiving the new Anointing Water and Stickers. Inspired by the Spirit of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave out The New Anointing Water and Stickers for free to the congregation both inside and outside the auditorium as his 50th Birthday gift and in dedication to the blessed memory of his mother on the occasion of this year’s Mothers Day celebration.
The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave the grace for the congregation to receive the rebranded Anointing Water and Stickers for the first time after their official launch today. Excitement and shouts of joy rented the atmosphere as the long-awaited release was announced by the prophet. As soon as the Anointing Water and Stickers were given out freely to the congregation, people began to shake, roll on the floor and vomit out dangerous substances that had been lodged in their system, under the power of God. They hadn’t even opened the packaging before Jesus Christ began to work in their situation. Mrs Towoju from Kwara State, Nigeria was among many who after merely receiving the New Anointing Water and Sticker received a miracle. She came out to testify that God healed her of a stroke after merely collecting a bottle of the Anointing Water along with the Anointing Sticker. Glory be to God!
Ifeoma had suffered serious headaches but immediately the Anointing Water and Sticker were given to her, just by merely touching the packaging, caused her to fall under the anointing of God and receive her healing. Upon getting up from the floor, she realized that God had performed the miracle. No more headaches!

Happy Easter! The Sunday service started with the prayer line section where many people from across the globe came to seek a touch from our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Many who came with neck collars, lumbar corsets, walkers and crutches received their miraculous healing through the power of God working in the lives of the wise men. We also saw many dramatic deliverances during the prayer line and laying on of hands sections of the service as the evil spirits in the lives of the people were exposed and expelled by the matchless power of Jesus Christ. Prophet T.B. Joshua also exposed the root cause of the problems in the lives of many as he moved around the auditorium prophesying.


Prophet T.B. Joshua explained the meaning of John 4:24, “God is Spirit, and His worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth” by saying that those who worship God without depending on God’s Spirit to worship Him, worship a god they do not know. When you worship a god you do not know, surprises come. He said that God’s power works through both His Word and His Spirit. He added that God’s power cannot work through His Word alone; we need both God’s Word and His Spirit to make it work in our daily lives.

WISE MAN HARRYIn his message titled, ‘The Supreme Sacrifice’, Wise Man Harry reminded us of the meaning of Easter.  He said that Easter is a day set aside by Christians to commemorate the resurrection of the One who paid the supreme sacrifice for our sin (Isaiah 53:3-6). The Easter period offers us the opportunity to once again reassess our lives in order to stay focused on Christ Jesus.


Mr Christopher Mba, a Nigerian residing in Togo, was among the thousands of those who received the Anointing Water upon his visit to The SCOAN. In subsequent journeys, he decided to minister the Anointing Water, praying for God to shelter him under the shadow of His protection. As he prepared to travel on another journey to The SCOAN, he ministered his Anointing Water before embarking on the trip. While on the journey, he and the other travellers with them encountered a group of armed robbers who halted their vehicle and demanded that they produce all of their belongings. The bandits were armed with heavy weaponry. ImmediatMR. CHRISTOPHER MBA {ARMED ROBBER ATTACK}ely, Mr Mba began to pray and announced to the robbers that the vehicle was travelling to The SCOAN. As soon as they heard this, the armed robbers stopped their operation and said everyone should continue their journey. Mr Mba was astounded as he was carrying finances in excess of N1million. He advised everyone travelling to minister the Anointing Water before embarking on any journey and commit their lives into the protecting hands of Heaven.



Mr Sibangani Mabode came to The SCOAN from Zimbabwe with the problem of joblessness, which had stretched for two long years. Despite his impressive professional qualifications, all applications he made were turned down for no clear reason. When he came to The SCOAN, he received the Anointing Water and was also privileged to meet with Prophet T.B. Joshua who told him that he saw him come to work in Nigeria.MR. SIBANGANI MABODE {PROPHETIC WORD -BREAKTHROUGH} Mr Mabode was initially confused because he had no intention to work in Nigeria and had never applied to a Nigerian firm for work. A few months later, a UK-based firm emailed him out of the blue, inviting him to head a project based in Nigeria. Shocked, Mr Mabode immediately remembered the prophetic word he received! Without even undergoing an interview, he was employed by the company and an impressive financial package was agreed on as his monthly salary for the duration of the project. After two years of joblessness and financial challenges, he is now fully employed and will begin work on a huge construction project in Nigeria in just a few days time. Indeed, a prophet of God shall say that which he shall live to see accomplished!



Mr Edema came to The SCOAN with the challenge of stagnancy in his professional career as a customs officer. After many years of faithful work in customs, he had not experienced any form of promotion and seemed to be staying at the same point. Upon going to The SCOAN, he was given the Anointing Water and Prophet T.B. Joshua prophetically told him that he would become a ‘king’ in his field of work.MR. EDEMA {KING IN YOUR CAREER} From that point forward, he continued to minister the Anointing Water and began to experience a huge breakthrough in his career. He led a team of customs officers for over two years and was subsequently given an award as ‘officer of the month’ as well as another award for exceptional bravery and heroism in his work. This year, he was promoted to the Head of Revenue and Customs Services, fulfilling the prophetic word that he would become a ‘king’ in his career. He advised people to always carry the Anointing Water with them in their activities and also encouraged leaders in various fields of life to involve God as they discharge their duties and responsibilities.



Mrs Chinanu Nwali came to The SCOAN a few weeks ago with the problem of a spiritual husband. The spiritual husband used to appear to her physically and in her dreams, instructing her to kill her husband. The spiritual husband also gave her the spirit of anger which caused her to quarrel with her husband all the time and she eventually moved out of the house with her four children.MRS. CHINANU NWALI {A BROKEN MARRIAGE RESTORED} She came to The SCOAN a few weeks ago and received her deliverance through the prayer of one of the wise men. Mrs Nwali said that after her deliverance, she has reconciled with her husband and has moved back to the house. She said that she now has love and respect for her husband and they are happily living together. She said that she no longer sees the spiritual husband in her dreams and there is peace in her marriage. Mr Nwali confirmed what his wife said and added that their marriage is now ‘sweeter’ than before. The Nwalis advised that what man could not do, God had done in their lives. Therefore, don’t give up.



Rev Martins Ugo, a Nigerian residing in Ghana shared his testimony of how God had delivered him from his past that had haunted him. He said that the problem that brought him to The SCOAN was setback and instability in ministry. He explained how his grandfather was one of the greatest witchdoctors of his time before he died, renowned for his extraordinary occultic powers.REV. MARTINS UGO {DELIVERD FROMFROM A PAST OF WITCHCRAFT} When his mother was pregnant with him, a witchdoctor met his mother and explained to her that his late grandfather had met him and instructed him to tell her that the baby in her womb would be his late grandfather coming back and therefore, the child should to be initiated and trained to become a great witchdoctor. As he grew up, he was taught everything about the idols his grandfather worshipped and how to perform the diabolical acts of a witchdoctor such as preparing charms for people. He also joined many secret societies and wanted to become an even greater witchdoctor than his late grandfather. He served under more than seven witchdoctors – each depositing more evil powers in his life.

However, he was in an occult temple one day when he had a vision and saw a Man instructing him to repent and change his life. When he asked the Man who He was, He answered, “I am the Saviour of your soul, the King of kings and the Lord of lords”. After that encounter, his life changed and he eventually stopped practicing as a witchdoctor. He gave his life to Jesus Christ and was given an instruction to fast. He went to Bible school, became a pastor and started establishing church branches. Although he had surrendered his life to Christ and was a pastor, he continued to receive serious evil attacks in his dreams from the evil forces from his past life of being a witchdoctor. He realized that despite the fact that he had accepted Jesus Christ and stopped being a witchdoctor, he needed to be delivered from his past and started to go to different pastors in search of deliverance, without success.

He was introduced to Emmanuel TV by a friend and started watching it. He then had another dream and saw Prophet T.B. Joshua praying for him. Later, he had a vision and saw himself digging up all the idols he once worshipped. After digging up the idols, he sprayed Anointing Water on them and as he sprayed the idols with the Anointing Water in his dream, they all caught fire and was consumed. When he came to The SCOAN, one of the wise men prayed for him and he was delivered in Jesus’ name. He said that during his deliverance, he saw an angel pulling off black clothes from him and putting white clothes on him. He advised parents to bring up their children in the way of the Lord and also implored all ministers of God experiencing evil attacks to seek deliverance.


Mr Henry Osigbemue shared his testimony of how he was once a notorious armed robber and used to astral travel to survey the areas he wanted to rob physically. He was initiated into a secret cult when he was at school and soon became a notorious armed robber, stealing cars on the highways, breaking into shops and even robbing five churches. He was the leader of a gang of boys, all involved in armed robbery. In a search for more power to commit crime, he went to the internet and saw a website about astral travelling. On the website was an advertisement to order a package from a woman in France, to teach people to astral travel. He ordered the package and when he received and opened it, he saw a black cloth, mirror and a magnetic picture in it with instructions on how to use the items to astral travel. The woman who had sent the mystical items to him from France physically appeared to him in his room and performed an occult ceremony of initiation on him to enable him to start practicing it.MR. HENRY OSIGBEMUE {ASTRAL TRAVELLING ARMED ROBBER}

He explained that while he was astral travelling, if someone tried to wake him or move his body, his spirit would not be able to enter his body again and if his spirit was not able to enter his body within 21 days, he would die. He used these diabolical powers to steal as he would spiritually survey the areas he wanted to rob before physically going there the following day to do so. One day, he visited a friend and saw the Anointing Water in his friend’s room. He asked his friend what it was and his friend showed him Emmanuel TV and ministered the Anointing Water to him. He slept off and had a dream and saw Prophet T.B. Joshua telling him to repent and then invited him to come to The SCOAN for his deliverance. When he came to The SCOAN, one of the wise men prayed for him and he received his deliverance in Jesus’ name. After his deliverance, he said that he is a completely changed person and no longer experiences evil attacks or has the desire to rob or astral travel.



Mr Oni Sky, a Nigerian living in Libya was brought up in a polygamous house; his father was a powerful witchdoctor who married approximately 30 wives and had over 60 children. As a young child growing up, he worked with his father in the shrine and his father trained him as a witchdoctor. Later in life when he was at school, he was initiated into a secret cult and soon rose up the ranks of the fraternity. He later became the cult leader. He started robbing people with other cult members and had many charms put in his body in order to protect him from different weapons such as guns and knives. As a wanted man in Nigeria, he fled to Libya and started duping people by feigning to invoke money. While in Libya, he introduced the secret cult to literally thousands of people there, many of whom proceeded to travel abroad to Europe and carried the cult with them. He said that millions of people had joined this cult as a result of his influence and the number of people he initiated who proceeded to initiate others wherever they travelled to.MR. ONI SKY {LIBYA CULT MAN}

He had 201 incisions on his head given by his father to diabolically ensure he would not die young, giving him boldness to carry out acts of armed robbery and fraudulent crimes. Prior to watching Emmanuel TV, he never believed anyone could deliver him and felt churches were also involved in duping people and the activities happening there were not real. After watching Emmanuel TV and listening to the messages from Prophet T.B. Joshua, he decided to come to The SCOAN. During his deliverance, he saw fire around the wise man erupting like a volcano and was unable to come close to him. Ever since his deliverance, he testified that he no longer smokes, drinks or takes drugs. He no longer has any urge to kill, steal and destroy people through armed robbery or initiate people into his cult. He said that he has even been calling people in all the countries he operated to come for their deliverance. His advice was that people should turn from worshipping idols and give their lives to God. He advised the youth involved in secret cults to drop their weapons and turn to Jesus.


Miss Florence Peters came to The SCOAN and received a mighty deliverance from an evil spirit that had sent her on an assignment to destroy men. Coming forward to share her confession, she explained that she had been possessed by a marine spirit right from birth. She was given the name, ‘Eze Nwanyi’ meaning ‘Queen of the coast’. When she was young, her mother took her around various spiritualists and churches in search of deliverance who then took her to a river for a ‘spiritual cleansing’. However, since she knew the spirit within her came from the water, the deliverance she went for served only to increase the powers she was given in the marine world. The assignment she was given in the marine kingdom was to seduce and destroy men, most especially those who claimed to be pastors and preached against the kingdom of darkness with pride.MISS FLORENCE PETERS {SPECIALIST IN SEDUCING PASTORS}

In the middle of the church service, she would enter and immediately attract the attention of the pastor by using the power in her eyes and wearing revealing clothing.  After the service, she would request for prayer from the pastor, in order to have a one-on-one encounter with him. When she entered the office of the pastor, she would pretend to request for deliverance and while the pastor was counseling her, she would look directly into his eyes as a form of seduction. Thereafter, instead of delivering her, she would go ahead to sleep with them and thereafter, their ministries would be under the influence and control of the demonic kingdom of darkness. She explained that she specifically was sent to attack pastors because the kingdom of darkness thirsted for souls and bringing down a pastor would bring more souls into that kingdom.

She said after her deliverance, she slept peacefully for the first time in her life, no more tormented by dreams of snakes, fishes and a strange man sleeping with her. She advised parents to be extremely careful about the names they give to their children, stating that the genesis of her problem was the name she was given. She further advised people to abstain completely from visiting witchdoctors and spiritualists as it will only compound their problems. Her advice to pastors was to be watchful of those who come pretending to ask for prayer, saying, ‘All that glitters is not gold.’


Mr Adogah from Ghana received a prophecy a few weeks ago and the man of God prophesied that he saw a lot of birds where he lived and that there was a tree at the entrance of his compound where many people’s destinies were tied. A video was replayed of a how the Emmanuel TV Team travelled to Mr Adogah’s house in Ghana and indeed when the Emmanuel TV Team arrived at his house in Ghana, birds were all over the premises. On the video, Mr Adogah explained and showed the herbs in his garden which he used to make charms and also showed where his temple was. Mr Adogah took the Emmanuel TV Team inside his consultation room and sprayed the Anointing Water all over the room and also on the various books and spiritual items he once used to perform his diabolical acts as a spiritualist and herbalist. Different spiritual paintings covered the walls of the room but the main feature was the table, on which different coloured candles and a large variety of spiritual and magical books were arranged. He also showed the Emmanuel TV team the spiritual clothing he used.2

The Emmanuel TV team also travelled with Mr Adogah to Togo where he showed them the tree that the man of God had prophesied about. A close inspection of the massive tree showed that it was hollow inside containing different items such as hair, bottles, children’s footwear etc. Approaching the tree, Mr Adogah sprayed the Anointing Water on it, in Jesus’ name and proceeded to explain how thousands of destinies had been tied there by witchcraft through the decades of its existence. tree AWMr Adogah brought the items and a pigeon he used as a witchdoctor to The SCOAN and explained the use of each item including the spiritual and magical books he used. He explained that he would use pigeons to carry a wide variety of his charms, medicines and other items to people anywhere in the world after casting a spell on the bird. Mr Adogah thanked God for his deliverance and said that he is completely free from his past life of witchcraft.


Mrs Martha Nzwile from Namibia, accompanied by her husband, Christopher Nwile, her nephew, Morgan and friend came to The SCOAN with a horrific story of fraud. The problem that brought them to The SCOAN was various kinds of sickness. She was involved in a serious accident in her country which resulted in a spinal cord injury. She was forced to use a neck collar and lumbar corset for over four years and lived literally in constant pain and distress. After watching Emmanuel TV, she desperately attempted to contact The SCOAN, but didn’t receive an instant reply. While lying in pain in hospital, she was told of a testimony of someone healed of colon cancer miraculously through praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua via Facebook. Although she had never used Facebook before, she decided to log on and search for TB Joshua Ministries on Facebook. However, she naively opened a fraudulent account of someone who claimed be T.B. Joshua. Unknown to her, the person she began talking to was actually a fraudster, deceptively using the name of T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV to defraud people who were desperate to come to The SCOAN.


After establishing contact with the fraudster, she was told that she would be invited to The SCOAN, picked up at the airport and all accommodation would be prearranged. She was told to bring almost $800 as an advance fee. She was initially skeptical and requested to see proof that the person she was corresponding with indeed represented The SCOAN. The fraudster claimed to be the account officer of The SCOAN, terming himself, ‘Joshua Emmanuel’ and going further to provide a phone number with which she could contact him. The fraudster in question sent her a fake invitation letter, using a crafted letterhead with The SCOAN and Emmanuel TV logos. Deceived by the amount of details provided, she actually paid the money into the account provided, totaling over $3,000. Innocently believing that she and her family would be met by The SCOAN at the airport, they went ahead to travel to Lagos. Upon arriving and meeting the official SCOAN protocol, they were shocked to learn that the person they had been dealing with was a fraudster and the letter of invitation completely fake.

Remember, better is not good enough; the best is yet to come.
