Standing elegantly in their immaculate black suits worn over starched white shirts, the seven young men and one young woman had an air of importance about them. When they introduced themselves as barristers, no one had any reason to doubt their credentials. The eight had come to say, “Thank You, Lord”. They represented a group of 21 students from the Nigerian Law School who came to The SCOAN in August to seek the face of God over spiritual warfares they were helplessly battling with. They had all been experiencing setbacks in their studies and decided to meet the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. One of the graduates, Paul Negedu – now a fully accredited lawyer, explained that they had all been facing evil attacks and that one student at the university had collapsed one day and died. Many were falling sick from unexplainable illnesses. In his own case, he had nightmares and would hear a voice tell him he would not make it. “It was like all the demons from my village had been mobilised to attack me,” said the 28-year old.
When they came to The SCOAN, they had the opportunity to meet with the man of God who gave them the Anointing Water. They all ministered it, in Jesus’ name and all 21 students passed their examinations. Two weeks ago, they were called to the bar! To prove that God was now fighting their battles, Barrister Negedu said that one night before he wrote his exam, he saw one of the wise men rescue him from a lion. A day before his examination, he said, he was in serious pain the source he could not explain. He ministered the Anointing Water and went to sleep. That night in his dream, he saw the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua tell him that he was free. Barrister Okou Sunny, another of the graduates, testified that he is now an advocate and solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria, while barrister Erhiga Ibru testified that she has become the only graduate in her family of 11 children. “Believe in God; He will see you through,” she said.
