In his message, Prophet T.B. Joshua continued the series he had started two weeks previously, titled, ‘Works Of Faith’. He began by reading Hebrews 11:1-3, explaining that, “Regardless of which translation we prefer, the vital point is that faith deals with things we cannot see. I mean, faith relates to the invisible. Our senses point us to the visible world but faith in the actual sense takes us behind the visible to the invisible.”
Sharing his own personal experiences as someone who has passed through huge amounts of persecution and condemnation during his time in ministry, Prophet T.B. Joshua said that faith helped him to look beyond all of these and persevere. “The thing that keeps us from despairing is not what we see but what we believe. Faith enables us to see the unseen, thus, enables us to endure when the visible world offers us no hope, no encouragement.”
He then talked about the practical application of this message, exhorting congregants to read God’s Word with devotion and receive it in the midst of their hearts. He explained that many people only commit the Word to memory because they rely on ‘brain power’. However, “By faith, we not only commit the Word to memory but let the Word become an integral part of our being because it lives in us,” he said.

Immediately, after the ministration of the Anointing Water, the pain disappeared and her saliva, which had started to turn a brownish colour returned to normal. The doctors were shocked at the woman’s transformation considering the fact that no antidote was given and the scorpion that stung her was one of the most deadly.

DESTRUCTIVE PYTHON CAGED, COMMUNITY NOW RESTORED
A video was replayed showing Wise Man Daniel praying for Chief Ifeanyi in The SCOAN Prayer Line in the power of the Holy Spirit. The evil spirit within him began manifesting, saying it was a python and the god of his community. During the course of his deliverance, his wife expressively narrated how the evil spirit had totally destroyed his life and caused disarray in their marital home. She showed the scars on her body where he had used a knife to attack her, further narrating how, in a fit of rage, he had poured kerosene over her clothes, burning all of them to ashes.
There was no item left in their house which he had not physically destroyed when the anger overpowered him, including multiple televisions, fridges, furniture and assorted household items. She also explained how he was once a multi-millionaire but was now reduced to practically nothing. When probed, the evil spirit said it was the cause of his downfall, stating that it was his time to die and claimed that it had orchestrated the deaths of three others in his family every two years. Following his deliverance, Chief Ifeanyi had no recollection of what had transpired; even requesting that Wise Man Daniel should pray for him for deliverance, although he had already been set free.
The couple came forward with their three young children, joy emanating from their faces and almost unrecognisable to their appearance on the Prayer Line. Mrs Ifeanyi spoke first, testifying that she felt like today was her birthday and the happiest day in her life to finally see her husband delivered after nearly fifteen years of torment in marriage. She reiterated some of her past experiences with her husband, explaining how the spirit controlled him to the point where he would regularly force her out of the house to sleep on the streets with her young children thus being exposed to countless dangers. She had regularly planned to leave the marriage but for the sake of her children, decided to stay with him through thick and thin. She explained how when she first started attending The SCOAN, he was initially sceptical and opposed to her coming. Even when she returned with an Anointing Sticker, he would tear it up and remove it from their house.
However, since his mighty deliverance last week, she testified that he is now a new man! She said for the first time, he began to express love and appreciation for his family. All the violent spates of anger are now a thing of the past, she joyfully testified.
Chief Ifeanyi, while giving his testimony, narrated a brief history of his background, enabling viewers to understand how the evil spirit had actually entered him. He explained how he was born into an idol-worshipping home and was actually dedicated to a shrine where a python was worshipped and served. He vividly remembers an experience when, at the age of ten, he was playing near the shrine and saw a gigantic python slither beneath him. Sprinting away in fear, he ran to his father and explained to him what had happened. He rebuked him, stating that he was dedicated to that very python and it would never harm him, as that python, in fact, dwelt within him.
From that point forward, Chief Ifeanyi began seeing this large python appear in his dreams on an almost daily basis. Naturally gifted in business, he became a millionaire at the age of nineteen and was known as someone very magnanimous. However, when returning to his village, the chief priest of the shrine expressed displeasure that he had not returned the wealth he had gained to the betterment of the shrine, and pronounced that his family would slowly die every two years until his own turn arrived. Truly, Chief Ifeanyi buried three different family members in six years and mysteriously lost the millions he had earned in business. It was in this dire state that he came to The SCOAN, buoyed by his boisterous wife, and finally received deliverance.
Chief Ifeanyi testified that since his deliverance, he has slept soundly for the first time in his life, without any demonic interruptions! Immediately following his deliverance, he testified that previous business contacts began calling him and promising renewed business, further stating that he saw his wife in a totally new light, seeing her beauty in a clear light for the first time. Prophet T.B. Joshua rejoiced with the family, encouraging the congregants and viewers worldwide to see the life-changing results of deliverance in the lives of the people.
AN ILLUSTRIOUS MECHANICAL ENGINEER GETS BACK ON TRACK AFTER DELIVERANCE
A video was replayed, showing Wise Man Racine as he prayed for DR Robert Musoro. The evil spirit that spoke through him said it was from the air, and had made the man lose his job, marriage and company in order to completely destroy him.
Following his deliverance, Dr Robert Musoro, a Zimbabwean residing in Germany, came forward to share his experiences. Dr Musoro gave a brief resume of his professional training and expertise, explaining how he held a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and worked as one of the pioneers in Aircraft Engineering in Germany. Among many projects, his impressive work included engineering design for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and the Airbus A380, two of the world’s largest and most technologically advanced planes. He also worked with Siemens to develop ground-breaking technology in switch gears for middle voltage, specialising in Kinematics. He also worked with Germany company Thyssenkrupp Bilstien to improve the gears on the latest Mercedes Car, the S-Class. Dr Musoro explained that was already supposed to have started lecturing as a professor in his field, but had ignored many invitations because of the spiritual attacks he was encountering. He was accompanied by his wife, Pastor Edna who was a Cameroonian, a deliverance minister and also a nurse. Dr Musoro explained that he had four children from his previous marriage to a German woman, which had crashed due to the complexity of the spiritual attacks he was encountering. He further explained that he was plagued by nightmares and often found himself getting extremely angry and violent for no apparent cause, an attitude that had severely affected his work and relationships.
Before going further in their testimony, Prophet T.B. Joshua said that Pastor Edna met and married Dr Musoro amidst his spiritual attacks, stating that she should have ensured he received his deliverance before going into marriage. He further stated that he needed to ask God’s opinion of the marriage, considering the fact that four children were already there from his first marriage to the German lady. Dr Musoro stated that his desire was for the will of God to be done in the matter, a truth Pastor Edna also concurred with. Prophet T.B. Joshua further stated that Dr Musoro needed to return to his continent to help development there and contribute to their scientific and engineering growth, considering his gifts and expertise. He said he was ready to go to any length to ensure Dr Musoro can reach the height of his potential to contribute to the positive development of his country and continent.
SACRIFICING SPERM TO THE SPIRITUAL WORLD FOR DIABOLIC POWER
A video was replayed showing Wise Man Racine praying for a young man, who was eventually delivered from the evil spirit that had been operating in his life. The spirit in him had spoken in an eerie high pitched tone that it was from the deepest ocean and had destroyed him from youth. The spirit said it was a great bird in the air, a great fish in the sea and a supreme commander which had entered him through masturbation, embedded several demonic powers within him and used him to destroy countless people, especially beautiful girls.
Shalom came to The SCOAN with his mother to give his confession to the world. Firstly, Shalom explained that he had never met his father, whom he learned was from Israel, as his mother met him while she was a prostitute and living a promiscuous life. At the age of eight, while in his grandfather’s house, he heard a voice instructing him to masturbate, even though he had no knowledge of what that entailed. The instant he did it, he felt an overwhelming cold sensation throughout his body, signifying the entrance of evil. Shalom explained from that day onwards, until his deliverance, he masturbated every day at least eight times, even to the point of fainting on the ground in exhaustion. It was only as his level of spiritual understanding grew that he discovered through masturbation he was sacrificing his sperm to the spiritual kingdom in exchange for demonic powers to seduce and destroy.
As a young teenager, Shalom grew steadily in the ways of the world and began using his diabolic powers. He realised he had power in his eyes to seduce any girl of his choice. In less than five minutes, he could seduce and sleep with any girl he had met, stating that as he slept with them, it was the demons within him performing this act, hence his uncanny ability to continue for many hours without stopping. Any girl he slept with was automatically initiated into the evil kingdom, their lives were destroyed and they would see him appear to them in their dreams spiritually to continue their carnal escapades.
He explained that with the powers in his mouth, he could command anyone to do his bidding and they would be forced to obey, irrespective of their stature or status in society. Shalom then exposed how satan had used him to initiate countless girls on the internet through Facebook. He had thousands of friends on Facebook, mainly female, and would entice them to remove their clothes whilst he watched them on a webcam and masturbated, thus spiritually initiating them into the evil kingdom.
He also used his diabolic powers to dupe people on the internet to the tune of thousands of dollars. Anytime he communicated with his online victims, he would masturbate and spread the sperm on his keyboard, stating that anything he typed to them would instantly be believed without questioning. Through this, he was able to accumulate huge amounts of money through fraudulent means, all of which he used to furnish his lavish lifestyle of partying and excess.
However, it was after sleeping with one particular girl, that Shalom had an experience that changed his life. The girl told him that it was time for him to join them, and he physically felt his soul leave his body and plummet downwards towards the pit of hell. At this point, he suddenly cried out, ‘Jesus!’ but the girl said that no one could save him from his certain doom. Shalom said that as his soul was leaving him and death stared him in his face, he suddenly saw a man dressed in white who commanded him to return to his body. Upon waking up in a cold sweat, Shalom began earnestly looking for solution, realising that his time to leave this world was nigh.
It was in the house of a witchdoctor, who had gone out to prepare a charm for him to take, that Shalom discovered Emmanuel TV while flicking through the channels there. It was his first encounter with Prophet T.B. Joshua and The SCOAN. As he watched for just a few minutes, Shalom heard a clear voice instructing him to travel to Nigeria and go there for solution. Shalom was shocked, having never left his native Cameroon. However, the urge to go there was so strong that Shalom began planning towards it. He sold his aunt’s laptop to procure funds and left for Nigeria without even informing his family members. Upon arriving at The SCOAN, Shalom was given an Anointing Sticker and immediately started manifesting as he clutched it. With the evil spirit exposed and arrested, Shalom was finally delivered on Thursday during the prayer line.
He testified that since his deliverance, he had slept well, stopped masturbating and no longer had the uncontrollable lust and anger that had characterised his life for the last 10 years. He said he was growing daily in the ways of the Lord and thanked God for using Prophet T.B. Joshua, the Wise Men and Emmanuel TV to set him free and save him from satan’s plan to end his life prematurely.
