The morning service started very early, as usual, and the congregation was addressed by Wise Man Christopher on the theme, “Follow Instruction in Righteousness”.

In his elaborations, he maintained that Jesus is the Word by whom God speaks to us, which is why He remains the pillar of our faith and substance of our spiritual commitment. He said it is not enough to confess Christianity but to live it as expected of true Christians and that we have to run the race well, in Christ.
The wise man preached that Christianity is two sided – theory and practical. The knowledge of Christianity is not sufficient for man, but the practicing of what is known to be correct. In his opinion, when we abide by the Word and take Jesus Christ as our role model, we will be content, self-sufficient and satisfied. Our great belief in the Word will make us obtain the same results as the early disciples (Mark 9:23).

He said if we believe in Christ, we should have confidence in his ability to heal, “If you believe Jesus is the Saviour, you must have confidence in His ability to save”, he added.
In the word, the Wise man added, man must never doubt God’s ability to heal and save; there should not be room for doubt because we have a perfect evidence for faith. He maintained that light, blessing and good health can be obtained by man through absolute belief in the Word; we should know Christ and obey His instructions as clearly spelt out in the Word. This is because, “God has a role to play and man has his own role to play”.

He said God’s Word is a seed of divine life; Jesus is the Living Word and the Bread of Life. He added that “God’s Word will change you if you take it to heart”, and “A believing soul takes everything God says in truth and faith and puts the best construction on it”. He completed his sermon by 8:25am.

     Prophet T.B Joshua appeared on the pulpit and the first comment he made centered on the woman (Mrs. Patricia Onwelu) who had in the previous week, complained on the occupational status of her husband. She had received a prophecy from T.B. Joshua that her husband was doing the work of God.
The woman had wanted the Prophet to intervene and make God’s opinion known to them whether the husband should continue the work of God or remain a practicing lawyer.

The couple came to the church, and the wife narrated the story in full, and that the husband (Rev. Chidi Onwelu) did not know whether to practice law or be a pastor, because the little money he was making as a lawyer was what he used to build a ‘prayer mountain’ where nobody went for prayers.

She narrated the dream he had, which had made him distance himself from her; and in the dream, it was made clear to the husband that “he was a disgrace”, though he often saw her as an impediment to his spiritual fulfillment.

The husband narrated his own story. He is from a family of lawyers and though a good reader, he had read books, some of which contradicted each other. He was forced to set ablaze one of such books and in the night of that day, he found himself in detention in his dream. Though he was to be assisted by someone who reminded him he should not be detained, he still found himself behind bars.

Prophet T.B Joshua listened patiently to the narrations, and he pledged to see the couple and tell them what God’s opinion was, on the issue.

Equally, the lady who in the previous week, was arrested by the Holy Spirit when she tried to seduce the prophet through an evil spirit and manipulation, appeared in the church with her mother. Miss Charity Omeruah narrated her story to the congregation, the evil powers she possessed which had made her destroy at least three spiritual ministries and ministers through lust and sexual temptations, while Prophet T.B Joshua was to be the fourth person! She said she had been sent from the demonic kingdom with a mission to kill Wise man Daniel and Prophet T.B Joshua as part of her plans, and that she had powers in her hand, private part and head which could be dispensed at will.

According to her, her eyes were used to confuse people and forcefully seduce them, the hands were poisonous, and her nakedness was often attractive. She had tried to bring darkness in the church by stopping electricity, which was not achieved. Darkness could have made it easier to pounce on Prophet T.B Joshua, tear off her dress, and force members of the congregation to sleep. She failed because Prophet T.B Joshua is a true man of God.
She complained that the Prophet of God stood against their interest in the world of darkness; he was a stumbling block to their full manifestation. She had gone out of the church in anger and returned in fury, and that when she tried to sit down, she was given the anointing sticker which she had collected angrily. But it was too hot to be handled. She had kept it in her hand bag but it was too hot to be put down; she felt fire all over her body, and started shouting.
Eventually set free from the demon which had tormented her, she had narrated that she was possessed by this evil spirit from childhood. The sticker drove away the snake living inside her.  She confessed that her mother, who used to be a powerful member of the demonic kingdom, was equally delivered at The SCOAN.
The video showing the mother, Mrs. Omeruah, when she was delivered, was also shown to the congregation. She had challenged Wise man Daniel in the video, calling herself the Queen of all Queens who could not be easily conquered, and who had destroyed people. She was eventually delivered.

Standing by the side of her daughter, Mrs. Omeruah, narrated her story to the congregation, saying she was staying in Gabon, and was amazed by what she saw of her daughter on Emmanuel TV, which reminded her of her own personal experience on February 12th, 2012 when she was delivered. She regretted that her other children also belonged to the demonic kingdom. Prophet T.B Joshua had given her N20,000 when she was first delivered, to travel back home. It was while she saw her daughter manifesting that she decided to return from Gabon to come again to The SCOAN to testify.

Her story made Prophet T.B Joshua to make some spiritually–charged comments. For instance, “If you are here to see what you have seen before, you are here to waste your time. You should see what you have never seen before”. While in The SCOAN, new experiences make people wonder. In Africa, the Prophet said, “Once you cannot do something you believe others cannot do it”, yet people are expected to always seek the face of God. He said, “Things can happen; let us be open for knowledge”, and that they should be good listeners. He added, “If you want a breakthrough when it comes to things of God, you can never see it because everyone lies to his neighbour. The only way to move forward is to go to God. The problem with us is, if I cannot do it, no one else can do it”. He said people have the mentality to accuse others of using the power of Satan, if they cannot perform certain miracles themselves.

He maintained that God has used “Just a paper” (Anointing Sticker) to bring deliverance to people and that God can indeed use any medium to do his work. He also said that we don’t fight flesh and blood but spirit beings.
He also spoke on the fact that God’s power works through His Word by His Spirit, but the Word should become an integral part of your being, that the process of salvation can only be fully attained when the word is an integral part of the self. Preaching or sermonizing, according to him, should be brief, pointed and relevant and not the act of showing off. Between ten and twenty minutes should be sufficient for a serious sermon he said, and that prayer and Bible reading go together.

Hon. Kombowel Friday is the present Speaker, Bayelsa State House of Assembly.
A past video was shown showing him being prayed for and prophesied to by Prophet T.B Joshua. That was in November 2011. The Prophet had told him that he had seen him escape gunshots and was crowned, while he should assist the family of his mother.

In his testimony, he had told the congregation that he had originally come to The SCOAN over consistent night attacks, and limitations. He said he was able to have a child after twelve years of marriage, and had wanted to be relieved of the troubles he was facing.

He later became Chief whip of the Assembly (Bayelsa House of Assembly), and when the former governor of the state wanted him to be part of his Kitchen Cabinet, he was nearly attacked by some people (though he escaped being hurt), which confirmed what Prophet T.B Joshua had earlier prophesied. He wondered what would also make him wear a crown being not of a royal home. But within a short time, he was elected Speaker of the House of Assembly (he brought his photographs to the Church, wearing the regalia of office, showing the political crown). He was decorated on 20th February, 2012.

The Prophet appreciated the Speaker’s acknowledgement of God, and reminded the congregation what the President of Ghana, Prof. Atta Mills, did immediately he became president – he had come to thank God at The SCOAN.

Mr. Anthony Oshogwe came to the church with his wife to thank God for his deliverance from the plagues of acute pile and hearing problem through the anointing water. He said in 1988, 1992 and 2003, he underwent operations for his pile, and had the fourth in 2009. His first deliverance came through Emmanuel T.V when he placed his hands on the screen, as Prophet T.B Joshua was praying for the viewers. Like a man who experienced electric shock, he was surprised that his pile disappeared forever.

As for his hearing problem, he had come to the church on December 4th, 2011. He is also blessed to have a wife, Felicia, who is a prayer warrior. When the Anointing Water was given to him at the church, he prayed with his family, and administered it, and slept like a child. The hearing pains also disappeared. Any other pain that had come his way, he ministered the Anointing Water and it disappeared. His wife also confirmed this, and that they had married for 29 years. She had introduced him to Emmanuel TV in Akure (Ondo state), and the ear problem disappeared.

Mr. Simon came with his sister to thank God in the church for relieving them of the pains of poverty and helplessness caused by a family curse.
According to him, he had come to the church on August 25th, 2011 and had the grace to receive the Anointing water. The family is made up of eleven members and they all shared one room until the father died. That was in Bonny, Rivers State.
With the water, they all prayed and anointed themselves. They asked God to raise men of substance from within the family. Today, at least three of them have good buildings and with thriving business.
The sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Good luck, also came to the church attested to the claims of the brother. According to her, the family had been condemned by the dilapidated house they lived in. The coming of her brother to The SCOAN saved the family, as the members did not experience the benefits of good education and jobs. Today business is thriving well for the members.
Prophet T.B Joshua used this evidence again to inform the congregation that there were hundreds of people with concrete claims as to what the anointing water did for them.


The second service started with the deliverance program at the emergency section (prayer line) in which many national and international visitors were attended to by the wise men. People were delivered from the

stronghold of evil forces. One of these was Miss Selina Dausi, a South African, who was delivered from 30 years of ice cube consumption. Others were delivered from the spirits of anger, poverty, disease, childlessness, spiritual marriages and joblessness. Many also received their healings.

The session in the church started with the confessions of Mr. Segun Onabanjo who was delivered from the spirit of anger, lasting 20 years. Onabanjo’s anger was uncontrollable; he always wanted to see blood when angry, and often out of control. His mother had moved out of Nigeria because of this, especially when he broke the collar bone of his sister. He had wanted to run away when he confronted Wise Man Harry – The fire was too much for him. He received his deliverance.

Gift Chibo, an anger–propelled, Abuja – based Nigerian young lady was also delivered through Wise Man Harry. She had purposely come to The SCOAN to get deliverance because her spirit of anger had made her turn candles upside – down and burn things, also cursing people and invoking demons to attack such persons.

She had experienced a lot of disappointments in marriage plans and working places and even after her deliverance, she had wanted evidence to proof that she had manifested the evil spirit before. She glorified God for delivering her.

Mrs. Nkechi Toby, from Delta State received her deliverance through Wise Man Harry from a spiritual husband.
The spiritual husband had threatened to eliminate her if she came to The SCOAN, yet she had come for deliverance.  She was happy to be delivered through the fire of the Holy Spirit. She had felt light now, unlike before, when she felt heavy.

After songs were rendered, Prophet T.B Joshua came out and ministered words of prophecy to many present while the wise men led the congregation in a powerful time of prayer.
A young man was delivered from the spirit of stealing. He had stolen someN300,000 from another state and rushed to Lagos to invest some in business. He was delivered. He had told his story of failures in life, especially inability to attend school. He was to do some business after which he would use the proceeds to further his education.

There were other prophecies made by the man of God and the Wise men. Prayers were centered on spirits trying to stop the destiny of people from being achieved. The Anointing stickers were distributed to people and everyone left for home, content and confessing that the way out for them had come!

Sunday 25th July 2010 remains imprinted in the hearts of the thousands of worshippers at The Synagogue, Church of All Nations as a date forever to be remembered as a turning point in their lives. Once again, God proved Himself as the God of redemption, restoration and reconciliation as countless needs were met, problems were solved, homes were reunited and hopes were returned. Such can only be described as the work of God, and unto Him be all the glory, honour and adoration. God has no hands but our hands to do His work – what a priceless privilege to act on His behalf!

TB Joshua Preaching

T.B. Joshua Preaching: 'Christ and the Word are one'

First was a short but stirring message by Prophet T.B. Joshua, simply titled: ‘Christ And The Word Are One’, in which he emphasised the importance of God’s Word in our daily lives. “One thing we must know – you cannot build up one spiritually on philosophy, on theory or on the history of the Word. We are made spiritual only when we live in the Word and the Word lives in us,” he told the rapt audience. He further spoke on the effect God’s Word will have in your life once you truly receive it in your heart and live by its sacred principles. “If the Word of God is dominating your mouth, it will dominate your mind,” he exhorted. “If the Word of God is dominating your mind, it will influence your conduct and behaviours. So we must embrace the wonderful Word of God as the most effective instrument for change.”

The Febugha-Family

God has written us into an unprecedented and revolutionary story of reconciliation in which hostilities are destroyed

After the sermon had prepared the hearts of the people, it was time for the reconciliation of various families who had come to The SCOAN in disarray and dispute with accusations of wizardry and devilry. First was the Febugha family, which literally besieged the church with almost 30 members of their extended family, all because of varying allegations and counter-confessions of witchcraft that had left the family in troubled tatters and terrible stigma. Mr Peter Febugha spoke first, telling the congregation how he had confessed to being a wizard and killing his father over 17 years ago when he was still a teenager, following a revelation in a church that he played a part in his father’s death. The confession had brought disunity and disrepute to the family, and Peter had lived in the shame and controversy ever since.

Apart from Peter, other members of the family had also confessed to witchcraft or had been accused of similar, including Peter’s younger sister, Suko, his aunt’s sister and a number of young ones. The family’s fear was that it seemed one by one they were being initiated into witchcraft, aside from the fact that Suko had confessed that her kingdom was planning to kill the breadwinner of the family, a Nigerian Senator. After listening to their testimonies and spiritually screening those involved, Prophet T.B. Joshua declared the entire family free from witchcraft, stating that the only one with such a spirit was Suko, who was subsequently delivered. The prophet explained that Peter was young when he made the confession and it was due to his rough and thuggish lifestyle, not truly from his heart. As for the others who confessed, the prophet disclosed that it was due to a psychological problem, explaining how Satan can afflict one to say what they are not, just as he can afflict one with sickness or disappointment. The family were joyously reconciled, Peter Febugha shedding tears of joy after being declared innocent, as 17 years of torment and trouble was swallowed up in the joy of exoneration.

Febugha Family Reconciled

Jesus Christ is the Repairer and Restorer - the Febugha family reunited once again!

Okeke Family And TB Joshua

Prophet TB Joshua counsels the Okeke family who have come to The SCOAN for reconciliation

Another case was that of the Okeke family which was in a situation that threatened to tear them apart and destroy their marriage. Mr Fidelis Okeke had accused his wife, Mrs Martina Okeke as being an agent of the marine world and the one responsible for the downfall of his once thriving and prosperous transportation business. Mr Okeke explained that various revelations from pastors and prayer partners all pointed to his wife as being a queen in the marine world and being responsible for his plight, reiterated by his own experience in which a company of nearly 150 luxury buses was reduced to just 2. Mr Okeke’s daughters, Ebere and Amara corroborated their father’s assertion, Amara claiming the mother had confessed to being a crocodile, and Ebere stating she attacked her spiritually and was the cause of her marital troubles. She further added that different ministers of God had prophetically revealed her mother as the source of the family’s troubles.

Okeke Family Reconciled

What a God we have to worship; what a Son we have to praise; what a future lies before us!

Throughout the discourse, Martina looked up almost defiantly, not allowing the accusations levelled against her to darken her demeanour. When it was time for her to speak, she denied being possessed by a marine spirit, stating that any admissions she had previously made was born out of annoyance and anger, not reality. To settle the issue, Prophet T.B. Joshua first of all stated that for any minister of God to reveal someone’s problem and not deliver them, such a proclamation does not originate from the throne of God. He prophetically declared Martina innocent of the accusation, saying that satan just wanted to destroy the family because he knew their togetherness would move mountains. Convinced by God’s opinion revealed through the prophet, the family were reunited and husband and wife, who had been living separately for several years due to this, lovingly embraced each other

Wise Man Praying

One of the five wise men prays for the sick and afflicted at The SCOAN prayer line

Then came the time of healing and deliverance at The SCOAN Prayer Line. Literally hundreds who had come from across the country, continent and beyond lined up to receive a touch from God to replace the darkness within them with His gentle and redeeming light. From oozing cancerous wounds, deadly diseases such as HIV/ AIDs and Epilepsy, people confined to wheelchairs and crutches to those with spiritual problems, attacks in the night and people looking for breakthrough – they all came and they all received. Once again, the authenticity of the anointing received by the ‘Five Wise Men’ was revealed as God used them mightily to heal the sick, deliver the oppressed and prophesy to the people.

Twin Brothers

Twin brothers delivered from the scourge and scorn of bedwetting in Jesus' Name!

Following the prayer line was a time of powerful deliverance and prophetic messages, starting with testimonies from last weeks service. Mr Paul Ujah stood before the congregation to joyously declare that he had been delivered from the scorn of bedwetting following a prophetic message delivered to him last week. Apart from that, he told the congregation how the man of God had asked him of his twin brother upon meeting with him the following Monday, and revealing that he also was suffering from the same shameful malady. Provided with transportation money to bring his brother to the church Paul, standing next to his twin Peter, thanked God for restoring his family and removing their indignity. He explained that the predicament had left both twins unmarried and unable to move freely with people for fear of the disgrace attached. As Paul shared his testimony, Prophet T.B. Joshua declared Peter free from bedwetting also, stating that all he needed was a Word from God to bring the deliverance about.

Mr and Mrs Kolawole

Mr and Mrs Kolawole - a new relationship established!

Many would recall a supernatural scenario that played out in the church last week where a husband and wife had a remarkable confrontation, in which a king from the sea spoke through the woman to disown her husband. Mr and Mrs Kolawole, who had been battling with a spiritual husband that had made peace, affection and joy elusive in their home, received their deliverance on Sunday 18th July 2010, and the couple returned to give their wonderful testimony. Mrs Kolawole explained that after her deliverance, she had a dream in which the spiritual husband appeared to her and was then killed by a man who told him to leave her alone. Since then, the marriage has started on a new note, with happiness and love restored. Mr Kolawole confirmed that his wife was truly delivered, and praised God for bringing a permanent end to their marital turmoil of nearly 20 years.

With the faith of the congregation lifted, Prophet T.B. Joshua moved on to a time of mass prayer by first of all telling the people to pray for God to sanctify their hearts. The auditorium literally resounded with the fervent prayers of God’s people, before it was time to separate the pretenders from the genuine. As the prophet began to pray for deliverance, people looked in surprise as those beside them who had previously been in earnest prayer began to manifest the evil within them and fall to the ground. Truly, appearance and packaging are deceptive! Hundreds from across the auditorium responded to the powerful command by the man of God, as people possessed with evil spirits or afflicted by them were mightily delivered from the chains that had kept them in bondage. Precise prophecies followed in suit as God, the Revealer of mysteries, unveiled the secrets of men’s hearts and pointed out the root cause of their problems.

The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations auditorium

Thousands join in a powerful time of mass prayer with Prophet TB Joshua

Mere words are not adequate to describe God’s work at The SCOAN. All those in attendance would agree with the Scriptures in Luke 10:15, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.” Truly, those privileged to witness the work of God week-in week-out through The SCOAN and Emmanuel TV have no excuse to remain the same, for knowing God is not only to see His wonders but to learn His ways. May every Sunday Service at The SCOAN serve as an incentive for you to love God above all, trust Him alone and totally depend upon Him for everything. It is all about Jesus!
