VIDEO: TB Joshua fires back over controversial Sierra Leone testimony


Julius Maada Bio, Sierra Leone, tb joshua, scoanAfter news was widely circulated that a Sierra Leonean government official was ‘sacked’ following her testimony at T.B. Joshua’s church, the Nigerian cleric has responded by releasing a video of the lady’s controversial testimony.

International media outlets such as CNN reported the story of Mrs Fatmata Edna Kargbo, the Chief Protocol Officer of President Julius Maada Bio, whose testimony of ‘God’s blessings in her life’ after visiting Joshua’s church in Lagos, Nigeria, sparked public concern in Sierra Leone.

Kargbo was invited for questioning by the nation’s anti-corruption agency after insinuations were rife at the speed of her apparent rise in wealth.

However, Joshua’s television channel, Emmanuel TV, released the video of Kargbo’s actual testimony, which she shared on Sunday 21stJuly 2019.

According to Kargbo, after visiting The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) – “the house I constructed for 10 years without finishing – in exactly 14 years, I was able to complete it through the grace of God!”

This contradicts the narrative implied by most media reports that the Sierra Leonean politician amassed excessive finances within the short timeframe of her appointment as Bio’s Chief Protocol Officer in April 2018.

The clip released on Emmanuel TV also paints Kargbo as a patriotic figure who championed the cause of her nation during the deadly Ebola outbreak in the nation in 2014.

A letter from then President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma to Joshua, requesting his assistance in the nation to battle the deadly virus, is revealed, alongside a donation of $50,000 to Sierra Leone and 4,000 bottles of ‘Anointing Water’ to help curb the spread of the disease.

Kargbo reveals she personally received the gifts from Joshua – which were sent in a private jet chartered to the tune of $50,000 – and ensured they reached the affected areas, claiming that the regions where the ‘water’ reached were later declared Ebola free.

Although most media reports claimed Kargbo had been ‘sacked’ from her job, a statement from the presidential office indicated she had only been placed on leave pending the outcome of the corruption investigation.

TB JOSHUA PULLS CHINESE CROWD TO NIGERIA!


china, scoan, tb joshuaChristians from as far afield as China have trudged in their numbers to Nigeria in search of a ‘miracle’ through the ministry of Pastor T.B. Joshua.

Despite recent reports highlighting the suppression of Christianity in Communist China, it has not deterred large groups of Chinese citizens embarking on religious tourism to Joshua’s popular Lagos-based church named The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN).

On Sunday 25thAugust 2019, in Joshua’s church service broadcast on Emmanuel TV – YouTube’s most watched Christian ministry network with over 500,000,000 individual views – more than 150 Asian worshippers can be seen in the midst of the multicultural crowd.china, tb joshua. scoan

A Chinese citizen named Shou Qiang shared a public testimony that he was ‘delivered’ from a ‘suicidal spirit’ following Joshua’s prophecy and prayers.

china, scoanAccompanied by his wife and young daughter, Qiang admitted he had almost committed suicide on three occasions prior to his visit to Nigeria but that after his ‘miracle’, he no longer nursed such ‘demonic’ tendencies.

“I feel very free and calm in my heart; I am totally delivered,”he divulged in his ‘testimony’ subsequently uploaded to YouTube, adding that he now intends to ‘share the good news’ with his fellow Chinese citizens.

Recent months have seen a spike in Chinese visitors to Nigeria for the purpose of pilgrimage to Joshua’s church, with groups equally arriving from Hong Kong, Vietnam, Korea and Singapore.

Tourism experts estimate religious tourism contributes over 3% of Nigeria’s GDP, and official figures

indicate visitors to The SCOAN account for 60% of foreigners entering the nation.scoan, china, tb joshua

According to Wikipedia, the two nations have a rich history of bilateral relations and China is considered one of Nigeria’s most important trading and export partners.

Don’t Sack Any of Your Officials Based on Their Testimonies or Confessions in SCOAN


Julius Maada Bio, Sierra Leone, tb joshua
Julius Maada Bio, the president of Sierra Leone

It has come sadly to our notice in newspapers that the President of Sierra Leone, His Excellency Julius Bio, has sacked his state chief of protocol, Edna Kargbo, following her open testimony at SCOAN Nigeria. Kargbo, like thousands of others, might have come to the Synagogue Church of All Nations in Lagos,  (SCOAN of Senior Prophet TB Joshua), testifying to the goodness of the Lord.

The general public should endeavour to know that whereas such testimonies, especially given at SCOAN, are real and trustworthy and are for God’s glory, they shouldn’t be used to punish individuals giving the testimonies. These testimonies shouldn’t also be used to arrest any of your staff members or tender as evidence in any legal proceedings. They are for the Church and where science cannot explain everything about God’s interventions in our lives, miracles, or the deliverance from shackles of poverty, or the stronghold of Satan. In any case, if God has thoroughly blessed this individual there is nothing any president can do about it, except probably that the president may be inadvertently bringing himself down by refusing to accept the work of the Holy Spirit.

That as it may, it is equally necessary to educate the public about confessions and testimonies at most Living Church of Christ and at Christian gatherings such as in SCOAN Lagos or any of it’s Crusades home or abroad. These testimonies and confessions are what the individuals perceive but truly couldn’t explain why. As far as they are concerned it can only be by some supernatural forces working for them and not their merit. Hence kindly don’t use their confessions to sack them nor use their past to punish them. Even in a multi-religious setting like in Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Ghana, etc, governments shouldn’t intervene in Church matters in issues like this. The government that failed by its internal intelligence mechanism shouldn’t have used the Church as places it could collect negative information on its officials. It is both morally and spiritually unethical.

The public should know and appreciate that individuals that pass through SCOAN’s deliverance processes usually become positively changed persons and more valued resourceful persons. They would normally be able to carry more responsibility, become my reliable, more trustworthy and more dependable. They will have an excellent spirit like was in Daniel, given to them by Jesus Christ.  It is only when these expected changes are not visible in their duties that one could question them. The Jesus Christ we meet at SCOAN, or in any living Church and some are also in Sierra Leone, is big beyond our imagination and can bless not only our sister Edna Kargbo but every Sierra Leonian with bigger testimonies.

Emmanuel TV Growing YouTube Viewers


emmanuel tv, scoan, tb joshua The Synagogue Church Of All Nations, SCOAN, led by the Senior Prophet TB Joshua, is celebrating its growing number of viewers via the Channel for becoming the first Christian Ministry Channel to surpass 500,000,000 views on YouTube. This is a big landmark as one in about fifteen persons worldwide is an Emmanuel TV viewer on YouTube. Those using other television channels or devices could be equally high. The implication is that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is spreading to every nuke and corner of the world.

We thank Jesus Christ for this and congratulate the efforts of TB Joshua, Emmanuel TV partners and the entire SCOAN team. The projected current world population is 7.7 billion. Emmanuel TV has thus become the most viewed Christian ministry channel on YouTube.

In statistical terms, YouTube has become the largest online video streaming website in the world. YouTube is now used by over 1 billion internet users. Therefore, YouTube is having such a significant influence over the web, controlling more than a third of the social media activities, after the likes of Google, Facebook, etc. TB Joshua and his ministries can also be found in those other Social Media platform.

The Biblical significance of this rate of spread of the gospel through social media channel will become visible soon when suddenly Jesus Christ will appear in the cloud and the shout of the Archangels sounding. The spiritual dimension of current events should be of paramount to the society rather than the big numbers and statistics from YouTube.

Meanwhile, it can be seen that Emmanuel TV was a well thought out idea by the leadership of the SCOAN when it started only 13 years ago. It is still by His grace that we are called to Jesus Christ. Even those receiving their calls through YouTube, or directly from the Bible, or a preacher, it’s still by grace. Hence, in whatever level of the “Jesus’ Gospel Field,” we are called to, we must work well. Emmanuel TV is not only serving as a backup of the evidence of the gospel in the  SCOAN but also bringing the gospel closer to us daily.

T. B. Joshua and relevance of church in contemporary society


By Gareth Watson

T. B. Joshua… In the West many view the church as obsolete. In the UK for example, ancient cathedrals that date back to the 1400s are appreciated for their opulent architectural edifice rather than the social fabric that enlivens them on Sundays.

Contemporary issues that face the modern society such as access to education, promoting diversity in elite universities, marital problems, mental health matters and issues of depression are rarely tackled in a single church sitting – yet these are many of the 21st century challenges that society continues to grapple with.

The social stigma of adult bed-wetting 

For example, the social stigma associated with the condition of bed-wetting among adults appears was recently challenged at a prominent church in Lagos, Nigeria. During a church sitting on 18 August 2019, a middle-aged woman from Canada who introduced herself as Jenette Njodzenyuy Yula shared her life experience of the shame she encountered bed-wetting as an adult and mother of two. “My husband had to sleep in the other room and I couldn’t even visit friends because of the bed-wetting”, she reminisced. Yula explained how after ‘prayers’ from T.B. Joshua’s church in Lagos, Nigeria the previous Sunday, she slept for an entire week without bedwetting for the first time in her whole life. “I slept and woke up with my bed dry!” she exclaimed.

Adult-Bedwetting-Jenette-Njodzenyuy-Yula-

Her mother and daughter strangely suffered from the same condition and both equally joined the testimony to acknowledge “God set them free” from the embarrassing condition after visiting the church. Talking about her former issue candidly appeared to be a kind of catharsis for Yula. Nocturnal enuresis, in other words adult bed-wetting, is a condition that millions continue to suffer with in silence. According to some research conducted, about 26 million American adults are affected by urinary incontinence and face social stigma associated to the condition.

Access to education & promoting diversity in elite universities Access to education remains a widespread challenge across the world. However, reputable elite universities across the West, particularly in the US and the UK, face an additional challenge of promoting diversity – racial and class representation – within their walls. The Universities of Oxford and Cambridge in the UK, colloquially referred to as Oxbridge, have in the past two years sought to attract the Black and Minority Ethnic communities of the UK to increase their abysmal statistics of Black and Minority Ethnic communities on their respective campuses. Lady Margaret Hall (LMH), at the University of Oxford inaugurated a foundation programme to attract a diverse student-base. Cambridge University has said that it intends to launch a programme to aid disadvantaged students with a similar programme as that at LMH. T.B. Joshua’s church seems to arguably have innovative ways of inspiring students in this area.

A black British teenage student, Miss Blessing Omorodion, shared on T.B. Joshua’s television channel how she was inspired by the cleric and his inspirational ‘faith-boosting prayers’ to apply to the University of Oxford to study Medicine. Omorodion stated how her mother visited T.B. Joshua’s mega-church in Lagos propelled her to study hard and ultimately apply to the elite institution. According to Blessing, some months after her mother’s visit to The SCOAN, she gained admission and she thanked T.B. Joshua for the inspiration. Another student, Rebecca Ayodeji Akeresola, stated how she had received the necessary impetus from T.B. Joshua’s church to apply to study Mathematics at the African Mathematical Sciences Institute in Rwanda. To her surprise she gained admission on a full scholarship. The role of the church in addressing marital issues  Another young adult woman (accompanied by her husband) candidly shared her life experience that one would ordinarily not associate with a church setting: issues of marital intimacy. 

During a detailed testimony, in a question and answer format, a young married woman, Mrs Ngozi Nwachukwu, stated how her marriage was saved from collapsing after she received what she called, “a word of prophecy” concerning a private issue she could not disclose to any person except her husband. “Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied to me in the midst of the crowd and said, ‘There is a woman there – your passage is blocked for affection… It’s a spiritual attack’,” Mrs Nwachukwu said. The young woman explained how her marriage was encountering challenges due to her private gynaecological condition that she could not disclose to anyone. With a husband who was losing patience, she had nowhere else to go, and so she made a way to an unlikely place for help – where she had seen others with varied issues go and find succour – a church in Lagos. Mrs Nwachukwu explained (supported and reiterated by her husband) how after the ‘prayers’ conducted by T.B. Joshua the previous Sunday, both her marital relationship and her gynaecological-health challenge had been resolved; and she now enjoys marital bliss she never knew before the ‘prayers’.

Conclusion  One may wonder what the role of the church is given all of these varied examples. T.B. Joshua’s Sunday services are unconventional, unorthodox and seem to shake the traditional church networks in his native Nigeria – yet they appear to directly address the societal concerns that people face. From teenagers to young adults; middle-aged men and women to older, senior citizens – all appear to collectively find solace in an unlikely place. Is the Nigerian cleric redefining and challenging the stereotypical and traditional notions of “church”? T.B. Joshua has over 3.5 million followers on Facebook. His YouTube channel is reportedly the most watched Christian ministry (without a musical focus) on YouTube, with over 2 million subscribers across its English, French, Spanish and Portuguese YouTube channels. His English channel alone has amassed over 500 million views on YouTube.

Daily Devotion – Our God is God of purpose – TB Joshua


Sit and reflect on life itself and you would discover that nothing happens by chance. It is the principle of life that for everything there is a purpose. Our God is God of purpose. There is a purpose for everything He created. Who knows what would have happened if there was day and no night at all. Who knows what would have happened if there were only women and no men at all. For everything God created, He assigned a definite purpose – a clear role. Remember, you are made not only in the image of God but also to live in a community. Without relating to others in a community, the reality of the image of God in us cannot be made manifest. Genuine spiritual experience needs to be tested in a real situation in order to expose the reality of the experience. By genuine spiritual experience, I mean the image of God in us which we manifest in the form of faithfulness, love, kindness, goodness, self-control, humility and the like as mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23. If you say you are Christian, you are saying you are a divine image bearer of God. It means you mirror Christ and that your life comes from Christ. Except this claim is tested in a real situation, your claim would remain suspect.

As a Christian, no matter the situation you are facing, there is a purpose. Find out. Do a proper reflection and you would see that behind your situation lies God’s purpose for your life.

The SCOAN LIVE Living Water Service!!! (19/08/19)


Join the thousands of visitors to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) from around the globe as they prayerfully enter the anointed altar at The SCOAN to receive Living Water and a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ! “What you speak determines what you receive. I speak healing – I receive healing! I speak deliverance – I receive deliverance! I speak breakthrough – I receive breakthrough! I speak salvation – I receive salvation!” – T.B. Joshua

Shocking! Homosexuality, prostitution rocks TB Joshua’s SCOAN


Testimonies about prostitution and homosexuality are on the rise at Prophet T.B. Joshua’s the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN).

While others are confessing to being promiscuous with multiple partners, some congregants are confessing to selling se*x and making love with people of the same sex. A reminiscent of Soddom and Gomorrah!

TB Joshua
Prophet T.B. Joshua

A video shared by Prophet T.B. Joshua’s official channel, Emmanuel TV, captures the shocking real-life experience of a young man who encountered life at its most hellish.

From the tender age of 12, Jonathan Denise’s already fractured life descended into utter chaos – as addictions to drugs, alcohol and cigarettes set in.

“God rescued me from a dark pit,” the then 23 year old Uruguayan who lives in Paraguay narrates how he the Nigerian prophet saved him after attending a conference with T.B. Joshua in 2017.

Denise explains how he sold his body to make money, prostituting himself with both men and women.

“I had an addition to alcohol, drugs and smoking. I also had a spirit of lust that pushed me to sleeping with both men and women” he narrates.

He says he would sell himself in order to earn some money but that through T.B. Joshua, God had now rescued him from a “dark pit” where he was Satan’s slave.

He claims that twice Satan had wanted to kill him but he survived because he believes God had other plans with his life.

“Through T.B. Joshua, I have now been delivered of all my burdens, problems and pain of the past.

“I can sleep very well without any nightmare or paid. I don’t have that urge to sleep with people anymore” he says, while urging people to open up to God so Jesus can save them as it is with him.

Watch Denise’s testimony below


Mast*ur*ation and watching po*rn since 15 years old

Another congregant, Samuel Augustine, says he has been saved by Prophet T.B. Joshua from the spirit of lust, mast*ur*bation and an addiction to watching po*no*graphic videos.

He claims to have been tormented by the spirit for 13 long years.

The 28-year old man from Borno State in Nigeria says he has been saved by Prophet T.B. Joshua just by watching Emmanuel TV.

“The man of God Prophet T.B Joshua gave a sermon on the secret of his life where he said we need to meditate on thanking God. He encouraged us to pray with these anointed words – ‘Oh Holy Spirit, take more of me and give me more of You – more of Your goodness, kindness, faithfulness, meekness, joy, peace, self-control and love. He said this in itself was healing and deliverance and we should meditate on it for five days and we shall see God’s transforming power!

“I took it to heart and begin to meditate on these words and give thanks to God. Glory be to God, I was delivered from this spirit that tormented me for 13 years! Indeed, there is power in the Word of God! I tried so many ways on my own in order to get free from that bad spirit but to no avail” he claims

Daily Devotion – DO A LITTLE GOOD – By T.B. Joshua


If you read the about the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:30-36, you would realise that Jesus Christ has actually called us as Christians to respond to all human needs, for that is what love entails.

Jesus Christ values our little effort to honour Him when it is done in truth, humility and faith. No matter how small, how little, when you present it in humility, cheerfulness, Jesus honours it. Look at your contribution to others as an assignment from God. When you see whatever you are doing as an assignment from God, you cannot afford to fail God. You will always do the right thing. The Bible says that whatever you do to your neighbour or fail to do, that you do unto God. Every person God created is a solution to a problem. No matter your level in life, you are a solution to a problem. When you begin to see life in this light, you will always overcome, you will become successful.

Jesus Christ was bread to the hungry, a roadmap to the lost, water to the thirsty, a companion to the lonely. Whatever is your gift, that is what the Lord will use to bless others through you. What is your gift? No matter how small, you can still share with others who need your gift. Thousands want to change. They just don’t know how to go about it. Successful people are simply problem solvers. No matter your level in life, you are a solution to a problem. This means you are created for a purpose.

PRAYER: God, give me Your eyes to find those who need me and how I can identify with those who need me the most, in Jesus’ name.

A SURGE OF GOD’S POWER HEALED ME OF STIFF NECK



Engineer Odang Solomon had been suffering for many years with the problem of degenerative neck disease since 10 years ago, when he fell from a tree. For the civil engineer, the back and neck problems due to the problem became so severe that his career was affected; he could not stand for long periods of time – a major requirement of his job. He went to several doctors, who advised him not to lift any heavy object or even carry his children. Despite several medications, the sickness worsened and he could not lift his shoulders and his feet would go numb all of a sudden, making it impossible for him to walk. This issue got to a point where he fell into depression and thought of taking his own life. However, he discovered Emmanuel TV and saw people receive healing from similar conditions. During his visit to The SCOAN, he received prayers in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Solomon confirmed that after that prayer, he felt a surge of coldness come over him and he felt freedom at last. Today, he testified that he can now do those things he could not do before and is now free to return to his career. He advised all and sundry to trust in the Lord and seek His face so that Jesus Christ’s mercy would locate them.

A PASTOR’S TERRIBLE LIVER TROUBLES ARE OVER



Pastor Samson Nyangu, from Zambia, testified today of the goodness of the Lord in his life. For years, he had suffered from a terrible liver problem that was severely affecting his ministry; he could hardly go out to minister or pray for people as much as he would have liked to. Determined to surmount this obstacle to his health and ministry, Pastor Nyangu found his way to The Arena of Liberty last week and received a divine touch during the Mass Prayer. As Prophet TB Joshua declared healing and deliverance upon the congregation, Pastor Nyangu felt a sharp prick in his stomach – and he began to vomit poisonous meat-like substances. Since last Sunday, he said, no longer does he feel any pain in his stomach. Addressing pastors specifically, he advised people to humble themselves before God and His anointed servants.

GIRL MAKES FIRST CLASS AND FULL SCHOLARSHIP-WITH ANOINTING IN NEW MORNING WATER



Rebecca Ayodeji Akeresola came to The SCOAN to thank God for the completion of her studies at the University of Technology, Akure, Nigeria. Rebecca never did anything without her best friend, the New Morning Water, which she always ministered on her examination papers before submitting them. During her national youth service, Rebecca applied for a fully funded scholarship as many others students did. Through her prayer with the Morning Water, she secured admission on a fully funded scholarship at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Rwanda, where she will be resuming next week. Appreciating what God has done in her life, Rebecca advised all youths not to doubt God: “Never doubt God’s desire and ability to help you. Be careful of those who can negatively influence your life.” Her mother, Mrs Akeresola Oluwasola said: “It can only be God who has chosen her among the multitude of people.”

GENERATIONAL CURSE OF BEDWETTING BROKEN! AT SCOAN



It was a family stigma that had caused much embarrassment for Mrs Jenette Yula from Canada. The problem of bedwetting had hindered her social life. She would excuse herself early when visiting friends, not wanting to stay over and disgrace herself by wetting their beds. Her matrimonial home was also affected as her husband would go to another room, leaving her to sleep in the bedroom alone.


The evil spirit behind her bedwetting sat on her success as even getting a job was a battle – rejection became the norm. However, last Sunday at The SCOAN, Mrs Jenette Yula together with her children and mother who had suffered the same fate all received their deliverance from bedwetting! She testified that for the first time when she slept and woke up, she found that the bed was dry. The giant man that she would normally see in her dreams also took to its heels and the bad dreams of seeing herself urinating in the restroom is a thing of the past. “I am free! Me and my family, we are free!” Her mother also testified that she was also among those whom the generational curse had affected as well as Jenette’s children who testified to the experience of waking up to dry sheets – no more bedwetting. To God be all the glory!

LIVE Sunday Service At The SCOAN With T.B. Joshua (18/08/19)


If millions of this generation are to believe, they must see PROOF that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever! Get ready to witness undeniable evidence of God’s Word and power at work as you join Prophet T.B. Joshua in a practical demonstration of Christianity in today’s Sunday Live Service at The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria.

BOMBSHELL – TB Joshua Foreign Disciples chased away Bisola Johnson from SCOAN.


We think it is high time we said something concerning the way Bisola Johnson speaks evil about T. B. Joshua and his church, SCOAN. We are going to say it without looking at faces.  This is not a matter of being disrespectful, but a matter of the understanding of the leading of the Holy Spirit.

As you all know all fingers are not equal as such Bisola Johnson who chose to be a crook by defrauding foreign visitors of TB Joshua of which, Stephen Apomsem was duped of $2,000,00, see proof here and many others over $40,000 that, led to her in and out of SCOAN.

The Only Truth

The only truth this compulsive liar (Bisola Lair) told was 1. She was a follower of TB Joshua and 2. She was the only person who was doing the voice over at the SCOAN studio until the many atrocities she caused started emerging making her leave the SCOAN the second time.

How we drove her out?

Bisola returned to The SCOAN after been forgiven the second time and discovered we have taken​ her ​position doing the voice over, even better than what she had been doing. ​ That’s when Bisola became so angry and finally left the SCOAN knowing very well she had no chance​ of getting back her position.

Pastor Ladi Thompson

After Bisola roamed the streets of Lagos for about a year teamed up to the ONLY Pastor who keeps the coffin in his alter and made a DVD called deception of the age, selling it for £5 each in the street of London. The money made from selling the DVD’s brought argument between Bisola Johnson and Ladi Thompson making them to split up. They forgot that anything that starts dubiously ends dubiously. Bisola then turned to visit prominent members of the SCOAN for financial assistance which they all decline, making her teaming up with Pastor Sunday Adelaja. Ladi Thompsom and his coffin in the alter

Readers, please take our word for it! none of what Bisola and TB Joshua counterpart, published on the internet are true. Just so you are aware Bisola and Adelaja have also started fighting over sales of their book published against TB Joshua.
