Sunday Service 19.07.12

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

Preaching the Word of God

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

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

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


PASTOR POSSESSED BY THE IDOL HE DESTROYED

Apostle Ekune Joseph sharing his testimony of complete deliverance

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

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

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

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

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

Pastor Kenny narrating his experience of demonic possession

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

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

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

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

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

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

PROFESSOR HEALED OF GLAUCOMA THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

Professor healed of glaucoma

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

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

This Sunday’s service started quite differently from what used to prevail: instead of a sermon by the Wise Men, the programme of the day was kicked off with the prayer line, in which the power in the name and anointing of Jesus Christ brought healing, deliverance and breakthrough to a significant number of people. Prophet T.B. Joshua then spoke on the title, “WE ARE CONVERTED BY THE WORD”. He said that conversion can come from no other source than the Word for the Word takes the place of the unseen Christ. Meditation in the Word is a visit with Him. He said that it is the Word that taught us the value of the name, Jesus, the authority of the name, Jesus and our legal right of the use of the name, Jesus. The prophet said that the mind is renewed by studying the Word and by acting upon it.  To be the doer of the Word, the Word must grow in your mind to get into your blood, to gain supremacy over you.

MARITAL RECONCILIATION AFTER DELIVERANCE FROM A SPIRITUAL HUSBAND,
MR AND MRS OKACHIE

Prophet T.B. Joshua then asked for a replay of the deliverance of a woman with two kids from the previous week. Mrs Comfort Okachie had received deliverance from a spiritual husband through prayer from Wise Man Christopher. The spiritual husband had tormented her marriage and wanted to frustrate her desire to serve God. In a freak accident, fire from the generator at her home severely burnt her husband and he was rushed to a hospital.  Mrs Comfort never visited him even once. To make matters worse, her husband also had a dream in which he saw strange men sleeping with his wife and saw her drinking beer. A pastor then revealed to him that his wife had gone to the village secretly to sleep with her old boyfriend. The two had remained apart until that very morning in The SCOAN. As Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke with the couple, he reminded them that the problem in the home had been caused by the spiritual husband which had been cast out of the woman. He then reconciled the couple in Christ Jesus, stating that the marriage was from God. Joy filled the faces of the family as they embraced themselves for the first time in a very long time.

PASTOR AND MRS AZEEZ DANLADIReconsiled in Christ Jesus.

Pastor Azeez Danladi and his wife, Magdalene, came to The SCOAN from Ghana. Mrs Magdalene, a police woman, had come previously and was delivered through prayer from the wise men. Pastor Azeez was invited personally by Prophet Joshua. In the replay of the deliverance video, the spiritual husband in Mrs Magdalene revealed what had transpired between the couple in Ghana. It confessed that the wife had been dedicated to them since childhood, that she was a python and had tormented and destroyed the pastor’s ministry. Before service every Sunday, she would fight with her husband and provoke disunity among the members. After accusing her pastor husband of adultery, he had run away to Accra.
As Pastor Azeez spoke, he revealed that he had been unhappy in the marriage from the beginning. Two of their four children died mysteriously. His wife had once physically tried to kill a member of the church. People hated him and he faced financial difficulties. During the course of his separation with his wife, he said that he had seen Prophet T.B. Joshua in his dreams, reconciling him with his wife. When he received the call from The SCOAN inviting him to come, he immediately went out to buy new marriage rings, believing that the deliverance had truly come.
Prophet Joshua blessed the renewed relationship as he prayed for the new couple, holding their wedding rings. He then advised the congregation of the importance of receiving deliverance before entering relationships.


MINISTER OF GOD DELIVERED FROM AN EVIL SPIRIT, REV. MATTHEW NWALIE
Another video was played, revealing Rev. Matthew Nwalie receiving deliverance through prayer from the Wise Man. The evil spirit had spoken through him, saying it was a strong man in the body and that the reverend had been using prayers to disturb his kingdom. It said the pastor was capable of havoc because he was too strong but “I have seized your power”. It also stated that it had entered him while he was conducting deliverance.
After his deliverance, the reverend told the congregation that he headed the Glorious Blood of Christ Ministry as a deliverance minister. The beginning of his trouble came when he delivered a pregnant woman. As she later gave birth naturally, something entered him and his prayer life changed. Prophet T.B. Joshua advised viewers to exercise caution, stating that people now see prayer as a hobby, business and operation but “if we cannot bring Jesus on the scene, we are in trouble”.
Rev. Nwalie then prayed for Prophet Joshua, saying, “May Jesus bless the mother who gave birth to you” adding that he would follow the prophet’s instruction in righteousness to forgive those who stood up against him during the course of his trial recognising that we need to forgive because we also need to be forgiven.
Truly, conversion can come from no other source than the Word of God for God is in His Word. The first service closed in an atmosphere of praise and thanksgiving to God and hearts were prepared and open to His Word, His faith and His Spirit. As the Wise Men took the stage in the second service, Jesus was on the scene and multitudes received their deliverance and freedom – the kind of freedom that nothing and nothing could destroy!

Wise Man ChristopherWise Man Christopher spoke on the theme, ‘You Must Be Born Again’ early Sunday morning. He saidProphet T.B. Joshua we are here to shine as light because to God’s power nothing is impossible. Regeneration is the renewal of the spirit, soul and body. He asked, “What does it take to be regenerated? What must I do to enter the Kingdom of God?” Using John 3:1-8 as proof text, he said spiritual rebirth means salvation and that salvation should have impact on our everyday life.

He said when God sets you free, you are free in reality and that we must admit that we have sinned and need to be born again. He said without repentance and faith, God’s power cannot work in a man’s life. True Christianity lies in the purity of heart. Knowing God is not to see His Words but to learn His ways.

The Holy Spirit, he said, helps us to overcome trials and temptations. The Holy Spirit knows the accurate answers; His Word is the final authority. He said you can be tempted because God’s love does not keep us away from temptation. Encounters on the way, he said, will strengthen your determination. If God calls you, He will make you fit for it. Jesus Christ never murmured or complained. He bore all the insults. He said to be born again, the believer must die and resurrect with Jesus Christ. He used 2 Corinthians 5:17 for further illustration.
Concluding his message, Wise Man Christopher said we have to be spiritual by living in the Word and the Word living in us.

 EVIL SPIRIT SPLITS MARRIAGE FOR 10 YEARS

One of the video recordings replayed was of last week’s deliverance of a lady who had separated from her husband, and was experiencing absence of peace in her life. The evil spirit said it had destroyed her, though she was supposed to be  great. She was delivered through Wise Man Daniel.

Mrs. Josephine

This Sunday, Josephine Onwumah from Delta State, Nigeria came to church to share her experience. She came with Sunday Onwumah, the father of her four children. They had separated for 10 years. She was possessed by a spiritual husband and explained that when her husband travelled to Austria, she voluntarily campaigned for a release from her husband through his people because she had the spirit of lust.

Mr Sunday also testified saying that he had been in Austria for 14 years, despite the fact that Josephine had four kids for him – two boys and two girls. She was moving about with different men, a truth which his family revealed to him. After three years of separation, she said she wanted a divorce, went to the husband’s village and announced her wish to his family. Then, she eventually got pregnant for another man. Mr. Sunday said he had been receiving spiritual attacks, and after arriving in Nigeria, he decided to come to The SCOAN as well as see his children. He said he was surprised to watch on Emmanuel TV that she was delivered the week before.Mr. Sunday

Prophet T.B. Joshua said that the evil spirit was responsible for the woman’s life of recklessness. He said it was significant that the man had not married since separating with the wife. He also said that the marriage was destined from Heaven, especially since they have kids together. He then, told the couple that he would bring the family together to settle the matter.

A RED CHARM MYSTERIOUSLY APPEARS IN HAIR
Another video was shown of a woman with two boys who was delivered last week Thursday. The evil spirit said that the Wise Man was carrying liquid fire and that it had destroyed the woman. It said the woman had considered herself smart and complained loudly: “This place is an Mrs. Mariam Umaroven. How do you enjoy staying here?”

The spirit also said it hated her boys, and had wanted to kill the eldest son when he was five years old. It had injured his manhood, and caused the mother to wickedly use a razor to cut his arm.

The spirit also said it was responsible for the woman’s separation from her husband, as well as her suffering. It also wanted to turn into a viper to bite the son, and that deliverance at The SCOAN was destroying “our beautiful kingdom”. Her eldest child also narrated his experience of how the father had abandoned them, and that they were sleeping in an uncompleted building with their mother. The woman had also wanted to throw the eldest child into a well. The evil spirit which revealed a hidden charm in the woman’s hair said that it had eight powers. It also asked: “Is this how you entertain people – with fire?”

After her deliverance, Mariam Umar, from Okene, Kogi State, spoke fondly of her two boys, Khalif and Mohammed Ozigi.Mrs. Mariam Umar & Children

She also said she realized that she had strange powers and if she clapped thrice against anybody when angry, such a person would face the consequences.

She had gone to different places with her mother seeking for solution. She also hated her children, and loved the sight of blood.

The charm discovered in her hair was not seen by visible eyes; “I never knew it was there. I never saw it physically”. Mariam explained that four months ago in a dream, she saw a dead man put a red charm in her hair but upon waking up, she checked her hair and found nothing. It was only during the Thursday prayer line when the Wise Man prayed for her that it physically became visible.

After her deliverance, she said she now loves her kids and said, “I thank God I am free. My sons are all I have now”.
FIRST CLASS OBTAINED THROUGH ANOINTING WATER

A young Zimbabwean ladyA young Zimbabwean lady and lecturer in law at the University of Cape Town, was accompanied to the church with her mother to share her testimony. She had come to thank God for His goodness in her life, especially in her academic career through the use of the Anointing Water.

After her bachelor’s programme in law, she had practiced as an attorney for four years, but had wanted to study further.

Though the money was not available to achieve her aim, she had wanted a master’s degree from the prestigious University College, London. She had needed between £35,000 and £40,000 for accommodation and studies, and her mother had come to The SCOAN for prayer and received the Anointing Water. In six months, Miss Nthabiseng obtained a full scholarship to study at University College, London.

At school, she had gone through hardship, especially in her course work. She was considering giving up because she thought it was impossible for her to even pass her course. In the midst of all this, her mother sent her the Anointing Water. She sprayed it on her books and writing equipment and prayed earnestly. In September 2011, she received her results and to her surprise, she had obtained a first class – a feat she thought impossible.

NO MORE MISCARRIAGES

Tsakani Nancy Mosutlha from Botswana had suffered from several miscarriages for 16 years. She visited The SCOAN and was blessed with the Tsakani Nancy MosutlhaAnointing Water by Prophet T.B. Joshua. When she eventually got pregnant and was to deliver, her baby was suffocating and it was difficult for her to deliver. The doctors recommended an operation as the umbilical cord was wrapped twice around the baby’s neck. She prayed with the Anointing Water in the hospital, and the baby was successfully delivered without any operation.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AT 49!

Following the Wise Man message, a glorious time in God’s presence in praise and worship ensued, before Prophet T.B. Joshua came out. “If you rely on the strength that comes from our Lord, Jesus Christ, He will not allow the enemy of your soul to overtake you,” he said, encouraging the congregation.

Using the opportunity to address his upcoming 49th birthday on June 12th, Prophet T.B. Joshua thanked the people for their prayers. Explaining the way and manner God wanted him to celebrate this year, he stated, “My birthday shall be dedicated to prayer for the Church of God, for its unity. It is also an occasion that calls for persistent giving, especially to the needy,” he continued, stressing that people should give every good thing the Lord had given to them.

EVERYONE NEEDS DELIVERANCE

A video was replayed in which Mr Gideon Ibitoye was remarkably delivered after prayer from Wise Man Christopher during last week’s Monday Service. The evil spirit had spoken through him, saying that it was a warrior who had come to cause suffering and poverty in the family.

Addressing the importance of deliverance, Prophet T.B. Joshua said that it was necessary for everyone to pass through deliverance. Referring the congregation to 1 Corinthians 10:13, he explained that even after deliverance, a Christian would still face challenges and trials but that they would lead to his improvement. “When you are delivered, strength will come from above so that the enemy of your soul will not overtake you,” he said.

In his explanation, Mr Ibitoye narrated that he is a youth pastor in his church and never had any inclination that he would be the one to be delivered when they came to The SCOAN. On the contrary, he believed his wife was the one responsible for the problems and expected her to be the one to manifest when the Wise Men prayed. This belief came as a result of a number of pastors who had pointed out that his wife was the architect of their downfall, telling him to beg her for forgiveness and adorn her with gifts of clothes so she would release him from the cage he was in.

Confused, his wife explained that she too ended up suspecting that she might be possessed, after all the pastors had pointed her out to her husband. Mr Ibitoye explained that during the Sunday Service, his entire focus was on his wife during the Wise Men’s prayer, expecting her to react and manifest. Disappointed after nothing seemingly happened, he resolved to return home. His wife, however, insisted that they return for the Monday Service. During the Monday Service, Mr Ibitoye said, after listening to a message from Prophet T.B. Joshua, he began to ask God for a touch from Heaven. As Wise Man Christopher prayed for him during that service, he explained that he just saw light and became very afraid, losing all consciousness and control. “I am not the type of person who believes in that type of thing,” he confessed, adding that he was astonished at the deliverance he received.

Members of the congregation spoke out on the lessons learned from the couples experience and Prophet T.B. Joshua commended Mrs. Ibitoye for standing by her husband despite the accusation and insisting on his return to the church on Monday.

DELIVERED FROM THE SPIRIT OF PROSTITUTION

Miss Pauline, a 5th year Student of Political Science and Public Administration at the University of Benin returned to The SCOAN with three friends following her confession in the church last week. After her deliverance from the spirit that had pushed her into prostitution, Prophet T.B. Joshua called on her to bring some of her colleagues who were also involved in the same lifestyle and desired deliverance.

Her three friends, all schooling in university, somberly told The SCOAN congregation that they were involved in prostitution and this was how they paid their tuition. Prophet T.B. Joshua promised that the church would assist them financially with scholarships to carry on their education without continuing their past lifestyle. The young friends were moved to tears at the announcement, Pauline thanking God on their behalf for rescuing them and providing for their needs.

HEALED FROM PROSTATE CANCER

In his faith building testimony, Mr Alex Okodua said he visited The SCOAN in October 2011 suffering from prostate cancer. At that stage, his condition was critical as he had lost a lot of weight, saw blood in his urine and experienced swelling in his groin. He explained that at this stage he would be going to the toilet 5-6 times in a night alone. The medical doctors advised him to go to India for an operation and even then, the chances of recovery were 50-50.

However, in the midst of his deteriorating condition, one of Mr Okodua’s sons advised him to visit The SCOAN and use the Anointing Water. After receiving and ministering it, he explained that he immediately began sleeping well. Soon, the blood-filled urine had normalized and he was regaining weight again. Amazed at the miraculous work of God in his life, Mr Okodua returned to the hospital for another check. Marveling at the miracle, the doctors confirmed he was free from prostate cancer. To God be the glory!

As Mr Okodua testified, Professor Robinson, the Chief Medical Director of Nnamdi Azikwe University, Awka, attested to what he was saying. He explained that, as a medical doctor, he had referred many of his patients to The SCOAN for healing and had even ministered the Anointing Water in the hospital. He cited the case of a woman whose arm was to be amputated because of a large open wound that had refused to heal. However, after ministering the Anointing Water, the wound closed up and the woman was completely restored.

BARRENNESS OVER AND BREAKTHROUGH RESTORED

Engr. Ugwu and his wife came to The SCOAN with many testimonies to share to God’s glory! Firstly, he explained that he had initially come to The SCOAN with the problem of bedwetting for a long and painful 34 years. At this stage, he and his wife were childless and he was also experiencing setback and disappointment in his business. However, after coming to The SCOAN and ministering the Anointing Water, the Ugwu’s lives were completely transformed!

His bedwetting ceased and shortly afterwards his wife became pregnant, later safely delivering a baby girl named Mary. Employed in a petroleum company, abundant blessing started coming for Engr. Ugwu and he was able to buy a new car and move into a new house. To cap it all, his wife is now pregnant for a second time!

Following the testimonies, Prophet T.B. Joshua led the congregation in a powerful time of mass prayer.  “Your appointment with God is Divine. During Jesus’ earthly ministry, everyone was healed. God has sent me to you to give you something,” he told the excited congregation. He then moved in the midst of the congregation, giving words of prophecy to hundreds of individuals present. We thank God Almighty for what He is doing every week in The SCOAN. Indeed, a million thanks are not enough for what Jesus Christ has done!

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

Wise Man Christopher

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

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

 

CURSED TO BEDWET!

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

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

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

T.B. Joshua

 

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

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

 

 

 

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

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

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

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

AN INSTANT DELIVERY!

A new life welcomed into the world!

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

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

 

 

DELEGATION FROM FORMER IVORY COAST PRESIDENT LAURENT GBAGBO

Family of former Ivory Coast President, Laurent Gbagbo

 

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

 

 

AN INSTANT CONFIRMATION

A new president for France

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

When the President of Malawi died last week, the country rejoiced. Violently crushing peaceful protests, throwing donors out of the country and lining up his brother to succeed him, President Bingu wa Mutharika was beginning to resemble Robert Mugabe of neighbouring Zimbabwe.

The President’s death last Thursday appeared to be a miraculous solution to their problems. But perhaps they should have seen it coming.

On February 5, Prophet T.B. Joshua predicted, live on the hit Nigerian Christian channel Emmanuel TV, that an African leader would die within 60 days.

“We should pray for one African head of state, what I say, president, against the sickness that will take life,” he told a 15,000-strong congregation and millions of viewers. He said that he was in negotiations with God and that prayer might save the president. He did not say which one.

“I’m just being used by God Almighty,” Mr Joshua told The Times. “I had to send the message … I cannot say more than that. I will not say somebody will die. I’m not God.”

Many thought that Mugabe, who is 88 and constantly quashing rumours that he is sick, was a safe bet. President Mutharika, although 78, seemed to have considerable life in him. Enough, at least, to get rid of Joyce Banda, the Vice-President, whom he threw out of his party when she refused to back his attempts to line up his brother as his successor.

After Mr Mutharika’s heart attack, clandestine negotiations in the top echelons of his party went on for two days and the Malawian people were not told whether he was dead.

Ms Banda was finally sworn in on Saturday. She is a firm devotee of Mr Joshua, whose latest prophecy is the bizarre crown on a number of “miracles” performed to her benefit.

It is well known in Malawi that when he suffered a serious stroke she took her husband to see the prophet and believes that Mr Joshua’s prayers cured him.

“In Malawi, T.B. Joshua is a person that is dearly loved,” she said before her latest prayers were answered. “I must say that I’m addicted, because every Sunday … I sit all day watching Emmanuel TV.”

Mr Mutharika’s death came hot on the heels of Mr Joshua’s repetition of his prophecy last Sunday, when he narrowed down the location of the presidential demise, eliminating West Africa: “I’m seeing a sudden death. This is as a result of sickness. Quote me. The Lord showed me the country . . . this is not even in West Africa.”

Although he is often vague and never names his subject, Mr Joshua’s purported predictions range from the deaths of Michael Jackson and Kim Jong Il to the London riots last summer.

“You remember when I said your country will be burnt and crash, you never listened!” he told The Times crossly. He does not rule out helping again, however. “You want to know what is going to happen? I will make an appointment with God.”

T.B. Joshua made history today by sending one of the wise men, who trained under him, to Pasco, Washington State, USA. Thousands gathered and Wise Man Harry, who is from Macedonia in Greece, came out to minister. News got round only two weeks before the event but literally, thousands travelled and are still travelling from all over the United States, desperate not to miss their encounter with Jesus Christ, the Healer, Deliverer and Redeemer.

Wise Man Harry

What shocked everyone was that when Wise Man Harry started ministering, the same things that happened in The SCOAN headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria, began to happen. People threw away their crutches; many evil spirits manifested; people were released from demonic bondage; limitations and evil spirits in the lives of people were exposed and forced out. Some also received prophecies revealing the root causes of their problems and giving them insight into their past, present and future. Immediately after the prayer, people testified to the mighty power of God in their lives and they began to walk in the light of their testimonies.
