“I cannot do anything; it’s only my wife who helps me,” said Mr Franklin Ozegbe, who had come all the way from Delta State, Nigeria to The SCOAN with his wife. He was complaining about his bad case of fire burns. Having been hospitalised for two weeks, he decided to come to The SCOAN. It all started with fire in the kitchen and, as an ‘action man’, he had decided to enter the kitchen to throw out the burning stove but got burnt in the process. At The SCOAN, Prophet T.B. Joshua had stretched out his right hand as he prayed for Mr Ozegbe. Shortly after that, Mr Ozegbe returned to The SCOAN a perfectly healed man, to the glory of God.
For all of six years, sixty-two-year-old Mrs Stephanie Nosore had difficulty in walking due to lumbar spondylosis. To help ease her pain, doctors had given the Ghanaian pensioner a lumbar corset. They told her that her bone had shifted and that there was a compression around her hip, where she felt the most pain. Despite all treatments, including acupuncture, the pain continued. “Sometimes the pain would be so much that I would lose consciousness,” she said today as she testified of her healing during the Special Living Water Service on Friday. As she spoke to God on the Mountain of Prayer on Friday, Mrs Nosore said, “I heard a voice say, ‘Get up’.” As she ended her testimony, she told people to realise God’s power is on the Mountain of Prayer, describing it as “an invisible theatre or hospital.” She advised people to stay connected to Christ, believing in God and keeping a clean heart.
At just 10 years old, Miss Esther Fadahunsi was rendered virtually useless without a pair of crutches. For two long years, she suffered with bilateral Blount’s disease, a growth disorder of the shin bone that causes the lower legs to angle inwards. Because of this problem, she could not walk on her own. She could not do things around the house, play with her age-mates and she even missed a whole year of school.
Her mother took her to different doctors in the United Kingdom, in desperate search for a solution. The doctors in London said that that they had to perform a series of operations in order to correct the problem. Miss Ester helplessly went through eight different critical surgeries. After the eighth surgery her leg bone broke. Esther and her mother came back to Nigeria in August. It had seemed that all hope was lost, but one day, Miss Esther was watching Emmanuel TV and her faith was lifted after seeing someone with a similar case like hers receive healing.
They decided to visit The SCOAN. When they came to The SCOAN Sunday Service, man of God Prophet T.B. Joshua instructed her to climb on the Mountain of Prayer and pray there. Esther was carried there and as she began to pray, her legs started shaking. Suddenly, she could feel her knees start to straighten and immediately was able to stand up and walk on her own without any crutches, to the glory to God! She and her mother advised all to have faith in God and to believe that all things are possible.
On the day a prophecy located them, Barrister and Mrs Armstrong were beside themselves with joy as Prophet TB Joshua declared, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ that their affliction of miscarriages was over and that they would soon have a baby boy. After the prayers, the couple returned home in faith. Months later, they returned to church only for Barrister Armstrong to receive another prophecy regarding an encounter with a woman who first slapped him in the physical and later delivered hundreds of slap to him in the dream. During that second prophecy session, Prophet TB had also declared vitality on the failing manhood of Barrister Armstrong. Four years after the first prophecy, having held on strongly to Prophet TB Joshua’s declaration that “a prophet shall say that which he shall live to see accomplished”, the Plateau State-based lawyer and his wife returned to The SCOAN today to share their testimony on Divine, a bouncing baby boy that the Lord has given them in His own time. During his testimony, Barrister Armstrong narrated how he had suffered a severe libido problem and received a diagnosis showing he had degenerative disc disease. Doctors had told him he risked paralysis if he embarked on an operation. He happily refused the operation. He also spoke of how a terrible boil had developed between his anus and testes even while he was at The SCOAN for prayers. He said little did he then know that the boil would be the end of his problems. Three days later, the boil burst and Barrister Armstrong’s life returned to normal, thus paving the way for the pregnancy that produced Divine. He advised people to believe strongly in God’s ability to do everything. His wife advised women never to give up on their home and to believe in God.
SEVERE SPINAL PAIN DISAPPEARS INSTANTLY
Mrs Thoko Lubisi had severe spinal pain, which also caused her depression. The problem affected her daily activities and she could not carry out her duty as an educator as she would always wake up to excruciating pains around her waist and spinal cord. Last week at The SCOAN, she had the opportunity to go to The SCOAN Altar ‘mountain’. She thought of how she would get there, as the Altar was so high. With great effort, she finally arrived and instantly, her body began to shake. It felt like someone took her burden away and immediately, she became free. She demonstrated how she can move freely now without any pain, to the glory of God. She advised people watching on Emmanuel TV that it was faith in God that connected her to the Healer and they should have faith in Him. She says God’s time is the best time, no matter their situation; they should wait on the Lord and keep having faith in Him.
Ms Elizabeth Fenis, a Namibian, had the problems of a stiff shoulder and a stiff neck for 13 years. With medications having failed to offer her relief, doctors suggested she rely on an arm sling, which remained a key feature of her daily life. She decided to seek a divine solution, so she came to The SCOAN. As she climbed on the altar mountain to pray last Sunday, she felt relief suddenly fall upon her. It was if “somebody took me by the arm and lifted me up before placing me on the altar.” She said that she immediately felt the need to yank off her arm sling. After yanking it off, she started moving around joyously, glorifying God for the miracle. She advised people to seek the Living God and they will find the solutions to their problems. Corroborating Elizabeth’s testimony, her sister-in-law also spoke of how she received healing for her arthritic pains, narrating how she had felt some heat in her abdomen as the man of God laid hands on her last Sunday. “Turn to God; He will set you free,” Elizabeth’s in-law advised.
“There is a woman – you are bleeding. A lot of blood is coming out of your body. This is the challenge you brought here and the Lord has delivered you.” As Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke these prophetic words, they touched the life of Mrs Chioma Uchenna from Abuja, Nigeria, who had been plagued with constant bleeding for two years. Rushing forward, she confirmed that when it all started, she thought it was her menstruation until it progressed past the fifth day. She went to the hospital for a scan and had her blood level measured. They told her she had lost a lot of blood and prescribed medicine and blood tonic and kept her on bed rest for two weeks. The blood was coming out so heavily she would wear four of the pads used when women want to give birth. With force, the rushing blood would push the pads out and blood would drop on the floor. When she wanted to pick her children up from school, she could not get out of the car to sign and collect her children because the bleeding was too heavy. It was flowing like a tap that had too much pressure. She couldn’t meet her husband as a wife and couldn’t care for her children properly because she was so weak. She was also suffering from asthma and was forced to use an inhaler. As the man of God prophesied, she realised the prophecy was for her and she rushed out. When she went to the restroom to check, she removed the bloodied pads and checked herself, discovering that the bleeding had stopped! Rejoicing in the midst of the congregation, she testified this morning that it has been one week since the prophetic message dried up her issue of blood and she is free from bleeding as well as asthma! She advised people to trust in God for their challenges.
For a good four years, Mrs Nnenna Joy Irobi suffered severe pains from a horrible stiff neck due to cervical spondylosis; she also had difficulty in walking due to knee arthritis. To help ease her suffering, doctors handed her a neck collar and bandages for her knees. They also gave her painkillers. Yet, neither the painkillers nor the other aids gave her any relief. Having got to her wits’ end, she and her husband decided to visit The SCOAN for prayers. During the Living Water Service last Monday, Mrs Irobi got a chance to climb on the altar mountain. Needless to say, she struggled hard to climb the altar. The moment she began praying on the altar she found herself rolling there. As she did, the pains started giving way and she could not stop herself from exercising her body vigorously as she flung away her neck collar and bandages. To the glory of God, Mrs Irobi is now perfectly healed. Testifying alongside her husband today, she advised people to have faith in God.
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
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!
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.

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
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.
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.
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.”
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!
A community feud fuelled by superstition almost resulted in the gruesome murder of an elderly woman – but for the intervention of Nigerian Pastor T.B. Joshua.
A video uploaded to YouTube sensationally titled, “Will ‘This Witch’ Be Burned Alive” reveals how the scenario dramatically unfolded at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN).
Etom Bassey, a Pastor from Assiga, Cross Rivers State cried out amidst the church service that an elderly woman has been accused of being “a witch” and labelled the malevolent cause of all her family misfortunes.
According to Bassey, another lady similarly accused of witchcraft was a victim of ‘jungle justice’ just a fortnight earlier and burned to death as a primitive punishment for her alleged diabolic actions.
With the same cruel fate awaiting Mrs Ukwo Ufia – who had been ostracised by her own children amidst the furore – the pastor insisted the family should bring their dilemma to T.B. Joshua’s church before rushing to any rash action.
“Every church and prayer home they have taken her to confirm she is a witch,” he explained, as the elderly woman looked forlornly on.
The community monarch penned a letter to Joshua, pleading for his ‘prophetic involvement’ to settle the contentious issue and reveal the truth surrounding the damning allegation.
Community representatives alongside the aged woman’s direct family were all present in the church when Joshua addressed the complex case.
“What is happening to the family is an ancestral issue. Her mother was also labelled a witch and she died out of frustration,” the cleric revealed, much to the amazement of the family who corroborated his prophecy.
Joshua then declared he would “join the family”, affirming that Mrs Ufia was not a witch or the brains behind their calamities.
Kneeling to comfort the distressed woman who burst into tears upon hearing his words, Joshua called on the family to embrace forgiveness.
“It is an abomination – for someone who is not a witch to be called a witch,” he told the sombre family. “We can beg her and she will listen. What of the one in the grave?”
After the service, Joshua prayed for the entire family and gave them N500,000 as they returned to Cross River State with an emotional reconciliation.
Due to deep-rooted superstitions, it is common – especially in Southern parts of Nigeria – for elderly women and young children to be accused of witchcraft and subsequently stigmatised.
