MY ‘BULLET-PROOF’ CAR – HEAVENLY PROTECTION


Be encouraged by this remarkable testimony of a Ghanaian man who experienced Heavenly protection when 10 armed bandits attempted to waylay him…

“Emmanuel! My name is Mr. Isaac Dekayie from Ghana and I want to encourage people of God to know the protection we are under as children of the Most High! I was travelling from Ho (Volta Region) to Adenta (Greater Accra Region) using the Akuse Road. Upon getting to Afienya, I decided to go through Afienya to Dodowa en route to Adenta. It was about 8:30pm in the evening. Towards the Dodowa stretch, there is forestry surrounding the road which has many bends and turns. It was dark.

Divine Protection - Anointing Sticker Testimony“Suddenly, a man came out of the bush with a torch light ordering me to stop. There was no other vehicle in sight. Upon getting closer to him, I realised he was not a police officer; he also realised l was not slowing as he expected. Suddenly, he started shouting wildly, “I will kill you! I will kill you!” I heard him clearly because the windows at the front of my car were wound down. His shout did not frighten me and I drove speedily passed him towards a curve in the road. Just after bypassing him, I realised he was not alone! They were up to ten, all carrying torch lights and weapons. Suddenly, I heard a loud volley of gun shots towards my direction. Looking at the Anointing Sticker on my dashboard, I drove on, committing my life into God’s hands. The shooting continued until I had gone round the bend and was no longer in their sights.

“Moments after leaving their place, I looked at my windscreen only to discover several signs of gun shots. Miraculously, none of them penetrated into the car! I called upon the police who rushed to the scene. At the time they got there, the robbers had escaped into the bush leaving some used and unused cartridges. When the police checked my car, they counted up to 32 spots on the car where the bullets had hit. The officers who checked my car were astounded! It was as if my car was bullet-proof! The bullets did not even enter through the open windows at the front of my car. A look at the windscreen shows my Ghana flag as T.B. Joshua had instructed us to keep in our car and our rooms since it has become a contact point for God to use. I also had the Anointing Sticker with the words, ‘Let Love Lead’. I thank God for this deliverance and protection. I am forever grateful to God for saving my life. Thank You, Jesus!”

Embedded with a 10-pound tumour in her uterus


Embedded with a 10-pound tumour in her uterus, filled with 28-pounds of fluid in her body and virtually incapacitated by a swollen body, US-based Eritrean-born Ms Lamlam Kassa battled to come to terms with the 2009 backbreaking prognosis. A professional Nursing Assistant in charge of seeing to the wellbeing of homicide and suicide patients, Lamlam would find herself enduring six separate gruelling medical examinations converging at the same dreadful diagnosis and recommendation. Subdued by a dramatically fast-growing tumour, each of the six doctors she visited in the United States recommended for her to undergo surgical removal of her uterus. Terrified by this, Lamlam asked as to whether the doctors could recommend alternative treatments instead of the surgical operation. Alas, the doctors did not know of any other alternative to alleviate her predicament.

As if the mental torture her ill-health condition exerted on her mind was not grave enough, Lamlam could not lie down properly for a normal sleep that would have given her mental faculty the tranquility it needed to survive each night undisturbed. The rate at which the fibroid was growing in her body compromised the full functionality of her vital organs. As the fluid in her body increased with respect to the growth rate of the tumour, the combined mass competed for space against her organs. For example, the sheer size of the fibroid continued to squeeze her urinary bladder, making it difficult for her to retain urine for a reasonable time period. If she had to ease herself and did not hurry up, then she wet herself before she made it to the toilet. Given her state, it was impossible for her to run fast enough to make it to the toilet. To compound the situation, Lamlam would visit the toilet about 18 to 20 times in the night. This forced her to wear sanitary pads. The urinary case was, however, different from that of her bowels which became hardened by the pressures the fibroid mounted. Although it would turn out to be futile, she resorted to consuming organic food and raw vegetables to stimulate free bowels.

With her condition exacerbated by the volume of the fibroid and fluid in her body, Lamlam’s heart rate fluctuated, tilting towards a slow beat; she could neither lie on her left or right side; she vomited intermittently; she became anaemic as the tumour competed for the blood her general body needed; she lost strength by the hour, as thyroid problems also set in; and her general health deteriorated by the day. Cushioned with several pillows for stability and to ease pains, the advancing complications would force Lamlam to sleep in a sitting position for several months.

What could have been responsible for all these misfortunes in Lamlam’s life at the time she should have been enjoying her life? Could the various spiritual attacks she had had through demonic dreams be of any significance? Of all the many questions there were to seek answers for, why did she often dream of seeing herself caged inside an enclosure? Born into a polygamous family – in which her father married four women, had twenty children and lost five – Lamlam is among the fifteen surviving siblings. Two of her siblings were killed in the Eritrean-Ethiopian war. Among her ten surviving sisters, six got married and two of them later became divorcees. At forty-one, Lamlam counted herself as one of the unmarried remaining four siblings.

Although she could not easily identify what to attribute her health complications to or trace anyone in her family who may have gone through what she had endured, Lamlam learned that when her 26 years old mother died all of a sudden, she, then a 6 month old, was made to suck her dead mother’s breasts for milk.

“While she was lying dead, I drank a lot of milk from her,” said Lamlam. Was this part of her ancestral ethical foundation to allow a baby to suck the inert mother’s breasts under the guise of quieting a crying baby? Could this be responsible for poisoning Lamlam’s tender body? What actually killed Lamlam’s mother just six months after giving birth? While several questions loomed in her head, Lamlam would come to understand from her aunt, who raised her and the nine other sisters, that she hailed from a deeply rooted traditionalist family or idol worshipping background and that her deceased mother used to experience countless evil attacks, including a spiritual husband who constantly slept with her.

Lamlam remembered how her aunt cherished idol worshipping and performed sacrifices in the house. Growing up in an idol worshipping home, Lamlam watched as her aunt offered sacrificed chicken and goat to the idols. Whenever, as a toddler, Lamlam was very sick, she recalled, “A lot of my family thought that I would not make it; that I would die. They took me to witch doctors, and did a lot of things.”

As Lamlam continued to battle her life-threatening ailment in the United States, her family back home mobilised others to pray for her. Her family was saddened by the sheer scale of her illness that they did not think she would pull through it. It also became difficult to continue her work, causing her to lose her house. She could not mingle with others anymore because she felt embarrassed and uncomfortable with whatever she had to wear.

One and half years into her battle against the tumour and associated health complications, Lamlam’s brother, upon hearing about the recommended surgical operation, told his sister, “You are not going to do that, (for) the LORD will heal you. You have to go to Nigeria.” “To do what?” she asked him. “To see the man of GOD, Prophet TB Joshua,” he said.

Introduced to the Emmanuel TV cable by her brother, Lamlam started to watch the telecast to increase her faith while she waited patiently to travel to The Synagogue of All Nations in Lagos, Nigeria. Arranged for the prayer line, Prophet TB Joshua laid his hand on her and gave her four parting bottles of the Anointing Water. Following this, Lamlam had a dream in which the Prophet asked a Wise Man to enquire as to why she was crying out for help. When Lamlam explained her plight, he requested of the Wise Man to get him a razor blade. When the Wise Man handed Prophet TB Joshua the razor blade, the latter used it to cut through Lamlam’s body. As God used him spiritually to perform the Divine operation, the Prophet brought out a human head-like object that he threw away, before finally declaring, “There is nothing wrong with you; you are free.”

Immediately after this remarkable revelation, Lamlams health started to rapidly and miraculously improve. Upon returning to the United States after being spiritually uncaged, she continued to watch Emmanuel TV and minister the Anointing Water. Understanding her dream to be the spiritual indication of what was to be manifested physically, she decided to go ahead with the operation, confident that God was in complete control. Upon going for the pre-operation medical check up, the medical report revealed a remarkable fact – the tumour was no longer in her uterus! The puzzled doctors could not understand how the huge tumour had moved ‘by itself.’ It’s new position in the body was one the doctors marvelled at as it simplified the operation and enabled them to do so without removing her uterus! Just as God revealed to her in the dream, the doctors proceeded to surgically and successfully remove the mass of tumour from Lamlam’s body without disturbing her uterus.

The test was not over yet, however. In the aftermath of the operation, Lamlam developed a low blood pressure. Again. However, while in the post-surgery recovery room, she dreamt she saw Prophet TB Joshua hand her a decorated colourful cup bearing a number of positive inscriptions and pray for her. He then instructed her to drink from a cup, which she did. When the nurses came by to monitor her blood pressure, they reported that her system was normal. In addition to this, she was subsequently cleared of the thyroid and anaemic condition, leading to her next day’s discharge from the hospital.

Lamlam excitingly talked about how total peace has now overwhelmed her body. She has also found assurance in everything she’d endeavoured to accomplish in her life. With the tumour, swollen body, back pain, discomfort in her general body, weak urinary bladder, compromised vital body organs, low blood pressure, etc, now all completely gone, the Lord went on to level every mountain in her and family’s life. Her family began to mend broken relationships by forgiving one another and harvest what God had in store for them. Countless breakthroughs!

Based on her experiential insights and lessons learned, Lamlam had a word for the world: “What I can tell the world is that, first of all, have faith in the Lord! When things happen to us, they are not (meant) to destroy us, but to shape us. God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Hold on to the Lord, don’t give up. Know that doctors treat, (for) they cannot cure ‒ only God Almighty can cure.

“(For) people in my situation, it’s not easy for your uterus to be taken away. Because of frustration and a difficult-to-endure pain, a lot of people don’t wait. Because they cannot handle the pain, they just go ahead and do what they just have to do. But whatever we go through in life, the Lord is so merciful He gives us the grace to handle the pain and everything. We (have to) wait on the Lord, and believe that He is God (and) is able. Have faith in the Lord, trust in Him, and wait. If He has done it for me, He will do it for anybody else. So hold on in the Lord, pray and never give up.

“Things happen in life to make us realise that sometimes we take everything for granted. What I learnt from my experience is how to trust the Lord; how to be patient; how to be grateful for everything. We take everything for granted ― to open our eyes, to swallow the food, to go to the bathroom easily, to sit and get up… we take everything for granted. It’s God’s grace and mercy. This is a gift from the Lord so we have to be grateful for everything that we have, and not (concentrate on) the things we don’t have. We should always ask the Lord, ‘whatever I am going through, what are You teaching me?’ So we can learn from our experiences. If there is no test, there is no testimony.”

TB Joshua: I Lived a Rejected and Isolated Life


By Collins Edomaruse, Abiodun Ajala and Olawale Olaleye,
There could not be a better way to start than
to ask; who’s T.B Joshua?

Well, there’s nothing spectacular about Prophet T.B Joshua. He is just like every other human being. But if there is any difference, it is the grace of God; the righteousness of God. It is a product of the grace of God. So, I am a product of the grace of God.

So, how did your ministry start?

The Church started just like other ministries. And if
there is any difference, it is the way and manner God
executes his plans in our lives. And of course, you
know the way and manner God executes plans in our
lives differs. Sometimes, God can use foolish things.
Our God is awesome. So, in a nutshell, that is just it.

As a person, how was growing up like?

In summary, let me say, I have tasted what it takes
to be poor; humiliated, embarrassed and all what
not. And of course, I have tasted what it takes to be
honoured. So, I think it is that grace that gives me
the strength to face all conditions today. It is the

grace of God. I have tasted what it takes to be humiliated and poor and also what it takes to be honoured and have more than enough. And that is the grace to face all conditions.

Can one then say it is that tough background that gave you the grace to
truly believe and face God?

I think it is just the will of God because for anyone to march for God, you must first
march with Him. For me, I have marched with Him and this is the time I am marching
for him. To march with God is the time to sacrifice and to march for him, is the time of
grace and blessing.

When did you get the calling and what was the sign like?

It was about 23 years ago when it all happened For instance, many will say they
encountered God through a man of God to do this and all that, but in my case and I
know many must have had the same experience that I had, it was a personal
encounter. It was not that one man of God came to me to say this and that. It was a
personal encounter. And if you look at my birth, it is a story people like to read and
listen to. I was in a trance for three consecutive days, then I saw a hand that pointed a
Bible to my heart and the bible entered my heart and my former heart seemed to
have immersed with the Bible immediately. Then, the awareness came and I saw the
Apostles and Prophets of old with someone whose head I could not see because he
was tall to the heaven and suspended in the air. I believe it was our Lord Jesus Christ
sitting in their midst. I also saw myself in their midst. After a while, I saw a hand of the
same tall man, I could not behold his face which was glittering with an unimaginable
light; tall to the heavens and still suspended in the air. But other Apostles, I could see
their faces, particularly Apostles Peter and Paul, Prophets Moses, Elijah and others.
Their names were boldly written on their chests.

So, I heard a voice saying “I am your God. I am giving you a divine commission to go
and carry out the work of the heavenly father”. At the same time, the same hand of
the tall man gave me a small cross and a big Bible, bigger than the one that entered
my heart with a promise that as I keep pressing in his Time and Name, I would be
given a bigger cross but if I failed, the opposite would occur. I also heard a voice of the
same tall man but I could not see his head, saying “I am the Lord your God who was
and who is- Jesus Christ, giving orders to the Apostles and Prophets.” The same voice
said to me “I would show you the wonderful ways; I would reveal myself through you,
in teaching, preaching, miracles and signs and wonders for the salvation of souls.
Since then, I have been receiving in my vision every year and according to my
faithfulness to God, bigger cross that means to me, more responsibilities. The Bible
that entered my heart symbolise spirit and life (the Holy Spirit). God’s word is spirit
and life. He does nothing without his word. The book of Roman 8:16 says “God’s spirit
joins himself to our spirit to declare that we are children of God.”

If you were not doing God’s work, what would you have been doing?

The question you just asked me is purely divine because I don’t know. Listen, we are
created in God’s image and what matters to God is not our physical or mental
disposition, but one with Him in terms of love, kindness and so on. It is the goodness
of our cause that interests God and not our physical or mental disposition. Really, not
that our physical and mental dispositions do not have roles to play, just that the
goodness of our cause interests Him more than that. And since we are created for the
glory of God, no one can say what he or she would like to be. We are created for his
glory and we must live for his glory. Our lives are in God’s hands. We have no control.
We can’t control Him by using the Bible or cross as a good luck charm without a
thorough reformation of heart and life. So, I think that question is for Baba God.

Before that encounter with God some 23 years ago, who were you?

When we talk of encounter, there are different stages of encounter. The one we are
talking about is the deeper encounter. You know, there are deep, deeper, and deepest;
that is the three stages in the life of a Christian. So, every Christian must go through
the stages. It is about our responsibility to God; how we obey His rule. We have many
Bishops who are just deep in the Lord and we have many Christians, just ordinary
Christians without any title whatsoever either as a pastor or Bishop who are deeper in
the Lord. We have many pastors who are deep and their members are deeper. So, not
until you are in the line that you’ll begin to know this. But before I got the calling, I
was a member of the Anglican Church and participated actively in many Church
activities. On three different occasions, I was appointed the chairman of children’s
Harvest/thanksgiving ceremony. During my primary school days at St. Stephen
Anglican primary school, Agbaluku, Ondo State. I was the leader of Student Christian
Fellowship. I taught my colleagues the scriptures without formal Bible training. In my
dream, I was always taught the scriptures that gave me an edge over the other
student colleagues even above my teacher. I was the smallest in the class and I led
the prayer during school devotions. My teacher, Mrs. Margaret Tolani Adejumo and my
colleagues usually called me small pastor. So, it is God himself who performs the
divine anointing on all who have the wonderful privilege of becoming His children.

The essence of the question is to know if you have lived a kind of life that
negates outright, the life of a Christian before you were called to serve. So,
who were you before you became a man of God?

That’s a nice question. When you look at my life, you’ll see that there was no
opportunity to live a funny life. I don’t know my father. It was very, very difficult. In
fact, there was no opportunity to live a funny life because all through, it was rejection

and isolation and it really helped me. It was not by power of mine, so, we should not
make jest of those who lived funny lives because the book of Galatians 6, says, if one
is caught out of sin, you that caught him should take him gently; restore him gently so
that you also will not be tempted. For instance, you saw someone smoking and you
began to make jest of him; saying, ‘Ha, you are a smoker.’ Be careful because you
also may be tempted. For anyone to live right, it is not by his power or by his might, it
is the grace of God because without God, no one can live right. The Bible says ye
should be careful because the first may be the last and the last may be the first.

It’s Christmas. Let’s talk about its essence. What does Christmas connote?

Well, I would not want to say anything that will run contrary to the theology, but I’ll
put it in a way that a scholar of the scriptures will understand. Christmas is the period
of opportunity for everyone to show our true remorse for our unworthy past. I don’t
want to say anything that will elicit controversy but it is an opportunity to show true
remorse, and not an occasion to show off. Simply put, God has a son and he planted
him in the earth to produce a family. Today, millions are born again through this seed.
And if that is it, how then do we celebrate Christmas? How do we register our
appreciation to him? That’s the question. If God has a son and planted him in the
earth to produce a family, and today, millions are born again through this seed how do
we show appreciation? We show appreciation to him by giving every good thing
without asking of us: our love, our time, our strength, our faith, our loyalty and our
money. You see, there is what we call humility; total humility and submission to his
will. That’s our offering and when you want to give him, you should remember the
quality ones because for instance, in Nigeria today, we are good givers, but we do
give when it is convenient. That is Nigerians for you. But as true Christians, do not
give only when it is convenient for you. You should give even when it causes some
pains. Even when you are not happy, people can rush to you and say please help me, I
have not eaten today and you say leave, go, I am not happy, why should you ask me
for money? But even when it causes pains to do, please do because God has only one
son and he planted that son in the earth. You can imagine that. So, when you give
when it is not convenient, your offering will be a sacrificial giving. So, as we go out to
celebrate Christmas, we should remember the weak, the poor and the lonely in the
society. It is praise-worthy to give, not only to our power but also beyond our power. If
this is our aim and objective of giving, even if we gave out a little, that offering will be
acceptable to God. That’s Christmas for you. Some may say where is it written in the
bible, but the truth is that it is an occasion for us to truly remorse our unworthy past.
What this means is that a time of giving is a time to show true remorse, not the time
to show off.

But don’t you think your analysis of the significance of Christmas would
have been apt for Easter?

Sometimes, I wonder if we don’t read our Bible. Jesus Christ fasted for 40 days and 40
night and you have also been doing the same. But the same Jesus Christ walked on
the sea, why can’t you walk on the sea? But Jesus was led by the Spirit to do so. He
was not led because someone was doing it; he was not copying people. If you begin to
look through the bible, all the events that happened were not repeated. Look at it; he
walked on the sea, he turned water to wine. But who else repeated this? Also, in the
Bible, Peter said to the people at the beautiful gate, silver or gold I have not, in the
name of Jesus…but no other man of God has done that. This is because they received
from heavens. They came to change the world, but today, we are copying. And when
we keep copying, we cannot change our world. We’ll continue to live the same world.
We are sent to this world to make a difference, but we cannot make a difference

ANOINTING WATER BRINGS PROSPERITY – TB JOSHUA


Through the Anointing Water, Engr Lazarus Yakubu,
an aeronautical engineer became a proud owner of a Boeing 727

The testimony regarding the Anointing Water for Blessing and Prosperity came from Engr Lazarus Yakubu, an aeronautical engineer who has been in the aviation industry for years without recording enviable material success. Among many failures, the agreement he formalized with a Ukrainian Helicopter Company in 2005 to be their sales representative in Nigeria flopped like the Company his friend and he registered to render engineering services to clients, a contraption which took them as far and high as the United Nations. In the face of these poverty-grooming failures, he decided to spiritually fortify his fortunes with the Anointing Water. Coming to The SCOAN on 10th October 2010, he took part in the service during which the prophet uttered the words, ‘Your past is over’, as part of the prayer. Jolted by that phrase and claiming it for himself, Engr Lazarus additionally bought related spiritual materials including  ‘The Mirror’, ‘The Step’, ‘Read us’ amidst other video recordings and travelled home in renewed faith, internally satisfied that he had partaken of spiritual bath and rejuvenation in the Synagogue. In actualization of his faith, his life began to witness  a progressive change and thereafter, he became a proud owner of a Boeing 727 – a cargo plane of the carriage capacity of 20 tonnes bought for $5,000,000. In confirmation of the new door of prosperity opened for him by the medium of the Anointing Water, he received a visitation from a Construction Company in America on the Monday week to formalize an agreement with him to take charge of the construction of an international airport. Indeed, Lazarus’s fortunes have changed and he seized the opportunity of the testimony to advise his listeners to turn to God in all vicissitudes of life and they would not be disappointed.

I encourage you to watch Emmanuel TV, especially the live services from The SCOAN on Sunday. God is really using this simple television station to bring deliverance and freedom to so many people around the world!

If you have a testimony to share, please send it to us for publication in this blog. It would be great to hear from you. Remember, your testimony will encourage many others to come and receive their own touch from Jesus Christ.

eXact Information On TB Joshua

PARDONING MERCY – TB JOSHUA


2 Chronicles 7:14 – “If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves with a broken heart and pray, I will forgive their sins and heal their land.” The term ‘land’ means everything that has to do with you.

God’s promise is not a blank cheque. HE clearly spells out the conditions on which HE makes it. HIS promise is ‘I will heal you/ bless you/ save you – if you humble yourselves in prayer and be broken hearted.’ This means, pardoning mercy makes way for healing mercy.

If you pray for healing without obtaining pardon first, your sickness will not yield to your prayer. That is, will not be answered. Therefore – if your situation is not yielding to your prayer – look inward. That is, examine yourself in the light of God’s Word – because our God is a faithful God. HE is a God who keeps HIS promises.

Therefore, don’t allow the situation you are in to dictate the direction of your prayer, simply ask for His mercy and forgiveness because pardoning mercy makes way for healing mercy.
