Coronavirus – The Time for World Humility


coronavirus, china, tb joshuaThe miraculous testimonies coming out of China of the rapid healings and zero cases of locally affected patience in Wuhan and low transmission of the coronavirus, after the Prophecy of the man of God, Prophet TB Joshua on the showers of rain that will wipe away every fear of the unknown, which include coronavirus is a testament to the fact that God is already in control of this coronavirus epidemic that is causing fear around the world.

Truly the Chinese were very effective and transparent in their handling of the virus and the world is celebrating them for the work well done, but we need to acknowledge the fact that the good news coming out of China is a product of God’s grace. Remember there is no clinical cure to the virus yet. The situation in China is being under control because of God’s intervention and this every other nation need to emulate.

Europe, especially Italy is now the epicentre for the coronavirus. With more death compare to China where the virus started.

This is the time for us to run to God for help amidst this global epidemic. There is nothing to be ashamed of. An extraordinary situation requires extraordinary actions. Genuine Faith needs to be activated and the world needs to humble themselves and be awaking to the reality that God is supreme above all.

The Prophet always remind us that in every situation, God has something to say. There is nothing that happened in this world that is a coincidence, everything happened for a reason. This is why the world needs to understand that this is not a time for world politics of accusations and counter-accusation. This is a time for us to do a proper self-examination on our relationship with God and others around us.

We need to know that this is a delicate time. This is not a time for arrogance because it will only bring about self-destruction. Anybody can be a victim, irrespective of the class or status.

No one can stand on the way of God, His purposed will be achieved whether we like it or not, all we need to do is to humbly come to him and asked for His mercy. The grace is available and the healing is already done. Just come to him and partake in that healing grace.

The world has to seek His face in the sincerity of hearth if we want this healing that we are seeing manifesting in China to go through other parts of the world rapidly especially, those that are presently the epicentre of this epidemic.

God is not a liar, His words are true and sure. It is left for us to claim it to ourselves in humility, righteousness and Faith.

New Morning Anointing Water

Due to the alarming rate of death coming out of Italy and other affected nations around the world coupled with the fact that there is still no vaccine that can fight this virus, we are still insisting that the government of those affected nations in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO), should come to the SCOAN to officially other for the Anointed Water that has been affected by God, for healing and deliverance.

Perhaps, this continual call may seem foolish to many around the world and even opposed by the sceptic, unbelievers and the Satanist ideologist. But we should always put it in mind that, the vicissitude of time will tell who is indeed foolish and wise.

MAY GOD’S MERCY NEVER DEPART FROM US…AMEN!

Coronavirus: TB Joshua Praying for China and the World Healing


tb joshua, mountian, 2020 prayer
Prophet TB Joshua Praying at Mountain Top

Early last year, TB Joshua gave a world Prophecy at the prayer mountain that the year we are entering will be a ‘fearful year’ and it was indeed very fearful. Which confirmed the Prophet Prophecy. However, he reiterated the same Prophecy early this year when he was releasing the Prophecy for 2020. The Prophet told us that it is not over yet and that by God’s time table, last year, 2019 will end till March 2020. And this again we can confirm from the event so far, since the beginning of 2020 that there is fear up till now around the world, especially, with the outbreak of the Coronavirus.

We need to know that this killer Coronavirus that is causing fear around the world and currently taking lives and putting many on the sick bed started in 2019. But there was less publicity than on its rampage.

Since the outbreak of this killer virus, there have been rumours going around about the source of the virus. Some are even insinuating that it might be a biological weapon targeted at those affected nations, comparing it with the past case of the Ebola Virus.

Regardless of the truth or falsehood behind this rumours, one thing we must know is that the human race is fighting one enemy, and that enemy is the devil. The devil is behind the killing and destruction that his taking place around the world.

Just like what the Prophet said to the world about the Ebola Virus, the Coronavirus killer diseases and other of its likes are all from the pit of hell – manufactured by Satan to inflict pains, death and hardship on the human race. Satan is the enemies of God’s people. Satan is the one causing hate and spreading mistrust amongst the human race and he is behind this present epidemic called Coronavirus.

It is high time we understand that our fellow humans are not our true enemies. Humans in is normal self cannot kill or cause harm to their fellow neighbours. Those that are being used to spread evil and causing division around the world are under invisible forces that can’t be seen by the human visible eyes.

It is easy for the world to condemn fellow human because we have been made to see ourselves as each other enemies. Unknowingly to us that the unfortunate victim and the propagator of the act are both victims who need help and God’s mercy. But, Who in the world will accept this today? We are quick to through stone at others for their misdeed forgetting that, we too are in need of God’s mercy.

As TB Joshua will rightly say, “If we fail to see that there are powers that cause people to bowed down in bondage, we are fighting the wrong battle.” Let us channel our energy to the right enemies, instead of targeting each other. We all are both victims of that one true enemy. The devil is the true enemies, not your fellow human. Once we start accepting this hard truth the better for the world.

The world needs to come together at this critical time to help China and other affected nations. We need to preach the message of the wound of one is the wound of all. Whatever is going on in China now should be a thing of concern to the entire human race. Christ called us to be our brother’s keepers. Let us continue to show love to them that are around us. Help each other in the little way we can.

Just as it is the wise thing for us as leaders and good citizens of the world to protect our respective countries and territories from this ravaging killer virus, we should also be very careful with our words and actions. We should not fall into the temptation of shutting our doors against our neighbours, because of fear. Remember that the devil is the father of fear.

Our words and actions should bring hope to today victims, not segregation and hate. Let us look for how we can help each other and heal our world. The world belongs to us all, God has given us this world. It’s just the devil that is wrestling it from us.

Yesterday was Ebola virus in some part of Africa, today is Coronavirus in some part of China and other nations. Who knows, it can be yours tomorrow. We all should come together and see how we can help to bring this spread to a stop.

Those close to the government of China and other affected nations should take it as a personal duty to inform them about the Prophet and the SCOAN Anointed water, that has been affected by God to break the world free from every bondage and sickness.

They have to make an official request before the Prophet can release the Anointed water to the affected nations. This is not an individual thing. Things like this need genuine government request and enforcement. Every one of us has a role to play. Our God is a God of orderliness. He leaves men to their own will and discretion. He does not force Himself on us.

Surely, the Prophet is praying fervently for the affected nations and the world healing. The Prophet is indeed concerned about the happenings around nations of the world. His prayer is to see a world that will be free from the stronghold of darkness.

May God deliver us from the enemy stronghold… Amen!

Faith Working Through Love by Prophet TB Joshua of SCOAN


tb joshua, scoanThe Bishop of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Senior Prophet TB Joshua, in his opening teaching at the Living Water Service yesterday (February 3, 2020), gave a profound exposition on how “our faith works through our love”. He gave the teaching from Galatians 5:6. We would have most probably read from this part of the Bible many times hitherto but what Prophet TB Joshua is simply saying is this; “For our faith to work, we need to walk in love toward God and other people. If our faith hasn’t been working lately, the reason is probably that we haven’t walked in love well enough”.

Many times we wonder where this prophet draws his inspirations from. They are so precise, simple and yet very deep and sufficient for our deliverance and the salvation of our souls. We need to get it very clear that in Christ Jesus neither circumcised nor uncircumcised has any value. It is not how long we can fast, it is not because we would put in some big efforts at all. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love. Unfortunately, religion has stolen the gospel from the general public and presenting them with work and personal efforts; of course, all of which are good but they are not the first things.

Faith is having complete trust or confidence in God whereas love is an intense desire to meet the needs of others without the slightest expectation of receiving anything in return. Ordinarily, the two requirements, faith and love, seem to be working differently but Prophet TB Joshua has put them together for our success. It is heart gladden knowing that our faith works through our love. Hence we are taught that our faith works through God’s love for us; not our love for Him. When we understand how much God loves us, the width, length, depth, and height we will be full with all the fullness of Him. God will then be able to do more than we can ask for or think according to the power that works in us.

We thank God for the gift of prophet TB Joshua at this particular time in history. His love for humanity is deep-rooted. Many of us who know him since the early 1990s will testify that he is a consistent generous giver in love, expecting no repayment. Similarly, those coming across him daily today have free opportunities to be healed, prayed for and directed by revelation in prophecy. This is Jesus’ command to all of us to love God and to also love our neighbours. Giving is the actual seed sowing to produce a hundred folds as re-echoed by the prophet in the SCOAN.

TB Joshua’s ‘Morning Water’ Saves Zimbabwean Mad Man For 25years In South Africa


A touching testimony from South Africa of reconciliation and restoration after years of madness, homelessness and family separation has been shared on TB Joshua’s official Facebook Page.

According to the testimony shared by Geogina Gumindega, she had visited Joshua’s popular church in Lagos, Nigeria in October 2019 and received some ‘Morning Water’ – an item believed to be ‘anointed by Jesus Christ’.

Geogina subsequently learned of a heart-breaking situation from one of her close friends whose brother had mysteriously disappeared for twelve years after leaving Zimbabwe for South Africa.

According to the lengthy tale, the man – whose name was given as Leon Ayamu – “left home without the blessing of his parents and also ran away from a woman who had just given birth to his daughter.”

The situation deteriorated in South Africa to the point that Ayamu “started to live in the bush” and fell into mental degradation.

It was so bad that he was “surviving solely on fruits and vegetables” with “monkeys for companionship” in his homeless state.

His discovery was nothing short of miraculous! “We ministered the Morning Water on his sister at 11pm on December 7th,” Miss Gumindega explained. “At 9am on December 8th, she saw her brother by the roadside on her way to the supermarket,”

“God had put him in the right place to be seen by his sister who was not even looking for him that morning!”

The family were apprehensive “due to his rude and violent nature at the time” but “managed to convince him to follow us home”.

Thereafter, Joshua’s ‘Morning Water’ was ministered to Ayamu and placed in the water in which he took his bath.

“After this first bath, he went on to sleep for six hours that afternoon. According to him, he started to remember his family and actually miss them after waking up from this sleep!”

The path to mental stability had begun as the dishevelled man told his family “he began to crave human companionship” instead of merely staying with animals.

A matter of weeks later, with plenty of prayer with the ‘Morning Water’ and tender care, Ayamu “has regained consciousness, accepted Jesus as his Saviour and watches Emmanuel TV 24/7!”

Reflecting on his old life, the restored mad man said it felt “as though he lived in the jungle for only a month yet, in reality it had been over a decade!”

He has since reconnected with his estranged family members in Zimbabwe, “apologised to his parents for his rebellion” and broken free from an addiction to codeine and marijuana that fuelled him in the bush.

However, Ayamu’s tale is marked with disturbing and sordid details.

“He confessed to having suffered physical and sexual abuse from other men who took advantage of the vulnerability of homeless and mentally ill people,” Geogina revealed, explaining that at times he would “wake up with male semen all over his body”.

Gumindega hoped his testimony would “challenge our perspective of the kind of help we give to vulnerable people in his former state.”

Pictures of Ayamu’s condition when he was discovered in the bush and his current state a month later after returning to normalcy were equally included in the remarkable testimony to authenticate its contents.

With the abundance of such ‘testimonies’, TB Joshua’s church continues to attract followers from around the world, with official immigration statistics revealing six out of every ten visitors to Nigeria are bound for The SCOAN.

The Living Water Service – Teaching and Living the Truth in Christ Jesus


Living water servicesThe Living Water Service held on September 27th, 2019  at the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN was a huge success by every standard. Our forecast before the service was around 100,000 participants but in the end, we had underestimated this number by a huge margin. This is what SCOAN and TB Joshua are known for; generosity and unlimited love for humanity. Everyone was free to come, and many did. The organization was excellent. People were in orderliness, uniformity, patience and consistency. The participants came from different places, mostly Africans, but with diverse challenges. Jesus proved His presence and dominion over all our challenges. This service to the society is what we call “Preaching the Truth and Living out the Truth”.

Apostle Paul had encouraged Timothy thus, “As for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which can make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work, (2 Timothy 3: 14-17)”. This scripture seems to be exactly describing Prophet TB Joshua, the senior prophet in the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Lagos, Nigeria. Our collective task is that we have to daily grow in the Faith Jesus generously bestows on us with His holy word and spirit; picking our example from SCOAN team.

What have we learnt from Jesus Christ and what are we teaching to live by? Probably many of us are familiar with John 14, where Jesus tells His disciples that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. But what did that saying mean for them, and what does it mean for us? Isn’t that what we are seeing in SCOAN? How do we let other Christians know that our strength is our living by the teaching of Jesus and not only by knowing His teaching and preaching it?

These SCOAN teams, it seems to us, are the people that do know their God, working strong, and doing exploits. They understand Jesus and are instructing many, (Daniel 11:32-33). This ministry, for example, is also like the time Jesus and His mother were both invited to a wedding, on their rights. When the wine runs out the Church is to provide. The hungry crowds are to be fed not sent home, the sick to be healed, the captives set free. At 27 September 2019, the power of God manifested itself once again.

With this overwhelming crowd observed today our prayer is that God will continually empower SCOAN and Emmanuel partners to be able to run this programme periodically. It would also be appreciated if a special programme could be organised to target specifically Church pastors, Deacons, and their families, say once a year. Today, the Living Water service had the effect of a national crusade. Therefore, on behalf of all those who participated, or had been blessed either from the distance or within SCOAN premise, we express our profound gratitude to Senior prophet TB Joshua, SCOAN team and Emmanuel partners. Kindly continue in the good work you have learned and firmly believed in.

Prof. R. A. Ipinyomi, University of Ilorin, Nigeria.

 

The Healing Living Water on the Temple of Prophet TB Joshua of SCOAN


Living water servicesThe president of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Prophet TB Joshua, has been known worldwide for using water as one of his faith healing materials. He started using, right from the early part of his ministry, sacks of sachet water, moving to Anointing Water, morning water and now Living Water that individual fetches on their own by faith from running taps on SCOAN Temple.

Water is common in Christianity for drinking, purification and cleansing, for baptism, used in Egypt by Moses before Pharaoh until the magicians said to Pharaoh, “This is the finger of God.” The advancement that Prophet TB Joshua has brought water ministration to in evangelism and faith-building is significant. In his generosity, he has made it as part of the free services of SCOAN to humanity to run the Living Water Service at least once a month. Everyone is also invited. We pray that individual will put their faith together and fetch their Living Water. SCOAN is not charging anyone for this but requiring our faith only in the Healing Jesus Christ. TB Joshua uses this water himself as all his disciples. I’m looking forward to it very soon.

The call of Jesus Christ is very simple and clear when he said to Peter, “follow me and I will make you a fisher of men”. Peter had earlier recognised Jesus Christ to be different from others Rabbi in town when he told Jesus to depart from him because Peter recognized his unworthiness. Hence many people may be fearful, feeling unworthy or not willing to be exposed on camera and run away from this deliverance opportunity. Others may be thinking that the powers they already have like charms, cultism, all forms of contrary spirit are sufficient to deliver. These are the very reasons why you need Jesus Christ who gives a lighter burden in the place of mountains of burdens from the pit of hell.

Our doubts about TB Joshua or scepticism should by now be gone. Israelites were foot dragging recently in Nazareth but at the end, they were nursing the idea to have the return and repeat of the crusade by TB Joshua and his team. Unless you try you will be working with falsehood and fake rumours. Christ is alive and SCOAN of TB Joshua is proving this. According to Revelation 11:6 God has given some of His prophets power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. It isn’t a man’s doing but what God ordains. This is why we appreciate TB Joshua and Emmanuel partners for their love and generous service to humanity.

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.

“DADDY, I NEED TO POO…” – OPERATION CANCELLED THROUGH ANOINTING STICKER!!!


William Mensah, a Ghanaian residing in South Africa, sent a remarkable testimony of how God used the Anointing Sticker from The SCOAN to save his young son from an operation after he had swallowed a sizeable metallic object

“Emmanuel!!! In the evening of 27th April 2014, my two year old son swallowed quite a large piece of broken metal. I immediately took him to hospital and after x-rays, the doctor said that if it does not come by the following day, she would have to go to the theatre for an operation. By the next day, nothing had happened. I began fearing the worst. We went back to the hospital and the doctor booked us for an operation the next day. He said should bring him to the theatre in the morning.

Anointing Sticker Testimony

“As dawn broke and we were preparing to take him, I suddenly had inspiration. I had an Anointing Sticker in my house! I took the Anointing Sticker, placed it on the boy’s tummy and prayed. I said, ‘God of Prophet T.B. Joshua, please let this metal come out of this boy without him feeling it or hurting him in any form. Let there be no operation, in Jesus’ name! Amen!’

“About 20 minutes later, the boy came to me and said, ‘Daddy, I need to poo!’ I took him to the bathroom to change him. Lo and behold, when I removed his pampers, the piece of metal had miraculously come out! Emmanuel!”

Hallelujah! As Prophet T.B. Joshua says, “When you acknowledge God as your Healer, Deliverer and Redeemer, HE will do it again and again!”

FROM BARRENNESS TO FRUITFULNESS


Mrs Josephine Dossa had the problem of barrenness due to multiple fibroids and pelvic inflammatory disease. Her husband, Mr Dossa also had the problem of low sperm count. They visited The SCOAN, received the Morning Water and returned home. They ministered the Morning Water together in Jesus’ name and met as husband and wife. Shortly after, Mrs Dossa, went to the hospital and the doctor confirmed that she was completely free from any fibroids or pelvic inflammatory disease. The doctor also confirmed that she was pregnant! She had a complicated free pregnancy and gave birth normally to a healthy baby girl. They advised couples seeking fruit of the womb to have faith in God and that God’s time if the best.

EBOLA VIRUS: The Opposition Forces in Sierra Leone


wpid-ebolacure2.jpgObviously, we find ourselves in a world in which the established socio structures and institutions are been influenced by the devil and his cohorts working tirelessly to hinder, as well as frustrate the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ, thereby to accomplish the will of their master (the devil) which sole aim is to kill, steal and destroy. Therefore, it was not a thing of surprise when the reports came out that the ‘Anointing water’ sent by Prophet T.B. Joshua’s Ministry to help cure the Ebola Virus diseases that was ravaging the West African nation of Sierra Leone faced strong opposition from international organizations. It was said that those international organizations confiscated some bottles of the Anointing water that was supposed to be used to cure and eradicate the Ebola virus from Sierra Leone claiming that medically, there was no scientific proof that it could cure Ebola even though the President of Sierra Leone, Dr Ernest Bai Koroma authorized that the Anointing water should be allowed to be used on those Ebola’s patience.

When Prophet T.B. Joshua announced his desire to help the nations affected by the deadly Ebola virus with financial aid and Anointing water normally, it was supposed to be a thing of Joy and something that should be encouraged by all and sundry irrespective of their opinion about Faith healing. Based on the fact that the Anointing water from SCOAN is well known all over the world for its efficacy in healing countless number of diseases that even medically cannot be cured. It was expected of those international health organizations and nations of the world to key into these great blessing from God to humanity by encouraging the use of the Anointing water to help eradicate the deadly diseases, but unfortunately, the reverse was the case; they resisted and frustrated the move of God in the nation of Sierra Leone.

As common as this revelation maybe to many, this has again exposed the world and their institution for whom they really are. We are in a world that has lost touch with the reality of the healing power of God; a world where many don’t have Faith in God anymore. That is why most of the powerful institutions in the world of today are link to Satanism and their aim is to promote the agenda of the devil and resist/frustrate anything that carries the mark of God. Can’t we see how powerful institutions that suppose to sustain and uphold the natural nature of men are now the ones forcing sovereign nations of the world to accept Homosexuality as ‘normal’? Who knows if this may be one of the reasons for the September 12th, 2014 terror attack that led to the collapsed of a guest house at the premises of the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOAN) which claimed the lives of many worshippers?

We are in a generation that now worships science more than God, who actually created science. It is what science says that is now acceptable not what God says. This is why the devil has continues to take dominion over the affairs of men. I am not against the orthodox treatment. Doctors treats…But God heals, I’m simply saying that the healing power of God is greater than the opinion of any medical scientist because God created science to assist man not for man to now worship science above God. Therefore, any medical personnel that has the fear of God and recognizes HIS supremacy in the affairs of men cannot stand against the healing power of God through the medium of the Anointing water.

MY DREAM SCHOOL – Akelisiyine Pius


Akelisiyine Pius came to The SCOAN from Ghana with the problem of abject poverty to the extent that he could not take care of his family. Before going back to Ghana, he received the Anointing Water and believed that his life would turn around. He also claimed the prayer point from Prophet T.B. Joshua, “You will dream visions and dreams.” After ministering the Anointing Water in the name of Jesus, he dreamt that Prophet T.B. Joshua was walking with him through a school. When he woke up, he started praying although he had never had any previous thought of opening a school project. A few weeks later, he noticed an abandoned school very close to him. He purchased and took over the school and started the operation in the middle of the academic year. Despite this, the process was very smooth because God was behind it. The school was started with 65 students but before the end of that week, the school was filled up with 100 students. Now, to the glory of God, there are 330 students studying in his school. To add to the facility of the school, he bought a small van. Seeing the school was getting bigger and bigger, he had to exchange the small van with a bigger one. Due to the fast growth of the school, he had to continue to exchange the bigger bus with bigger one again. Now, the school owns a huge coaster bus. With this breakthrough, he advised everyone to do what God has put in their heart with faith.

The Woman With The Issue Of Blood…


Be inspired by the following testimony from Sisasenkosi from Zimbabwe!

“Emmanuel! I am a 27 year old lady and I wish to give God all the glory for the healing which has taken place in my body. I was passing out black smelly blood for 4-5 days before l could have my normal period every month. The black blood was rotten blood showing that it had been in my body for some time and became stale. This problem was with me for 4 years and it made my life extremely uncomfortable. I avoided being around people when l was passing out that blood because l was afraid they would smell the terrible odour.

“I visited doctors and they could not give me any medication because they didn’t know what to say was wrong with me. Also, this year in January 2015, l visited a doctor again because l was desperate for a diagnosis so that l could get healing. The medical staff around me all suspected different things such as fibroids and cancer. So on the 6th January 2015 my doctor referred me to a scan of the uterus. The aim of the scan was to check where the black rotting blood was coming from. A full uterus scan was done but they couldn’t find out what the problem actually was. Because of that, the doctor could not give me any tablets because he failed to figure out where the blood was coming from.

“God saw that l was at a very desperate point and needed Him to intervene as my last hope of healing. So, on 30th January l was privileged to receive the Anointing Water through my brother who resides in South Africa. The Anointing Water was actually sent for my mother who was suffering from severe depression which had made her suicidal. So, when l saw it, l also believed that it was sent for me. l went to my room, shut the door and put the Anointing Water against my womb. The bottle was closed and it was still inside the box but l believed it would heal me even through the box without opening it!

“When l prayed and continued holding the bottle inside a box, the power of God hit me so hard that l couldn’t stand. I was thrown all over the room by the Holy Ghost for about an hour! l knew at that moment that my healing had come. I felt like vomiting and even though l didn’t get to vomit anything out l knew that the demon behind my affliction had come out!

“To the glory of God on the 4th of February last week, l got confirmation that indeed l have been healed. For the first time in 4 years, l saw fresh red normal blood coming out of my body. I passed out healthy blood like all other women do out there and l am giving all the glory to Jesus who touched me through the Anointing Water! Even as l write this testimony, l am still bleeding because Jesus is still cleaning my womb. In the past years l had feared not having children but now l am confident that someday l will get married and be a mother too. Thank You, Jesus! Thank you, Prophet TB Joshua! Thank you, SCOAN!”

CHRIST WILL MAKE HIS HOME IN OUR HEARTS


PROPHET TThe SCOAN Sunday Service of February 15, 2015 was no doubt another huge success in the spiritual rejuvenation of God’s people. One thing that remains consistent with the church is its untiring resolve, passion for the salvation and redemption of mankind from all walks of life irrespective of gender or race. Hence, the name The Synagogue, Church of All Nations is not accidental but a fulfilment of the ministry’s God-given mandate to affect lives all over the world. It was therefore with an awe-inspiring approach that the entire congregation prepared their minds to receive the spiritual food dished out by the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua as well as the rich musical interjections by the spectacular Emmanuel Singers, a group whose reputation in musical ministration is soaring internationally.

Delivering his message titled CHRIST WILL MAKE HIS HOME IN YOUR HEARTS, the man of God affirmed that for our hearts to be qualified to be Christ’s home, we must put our trust in Him. We cannot claim to have Him in our hearts when our trust is on strange gods and deities. He cannot make our hearts his abode when our love for worldly pleasures supersedes our desire for Him. According to the man of God, who referred to the book of Romans 9:1,“Our heart is the communication/contact point. Christ dwells in our heart through faith. This means, it is the Word dwelling in you which is equivalent with Christ personally being in you. This means, Christ and the Word are one. If you know Christ and His Word are one, you bring Christ on the scene. Anytime you say, “In Jesus’ name”, you bring Christ on the scene instantly. Can’t you see the reason why you have not brought Jesus to the scene? Anytime you pray, you hear yourself, people around you hear you but Christ doesn’t hear you. When Christ doesn’t hear you and the people around you hear you, it is a dangerous mission”.

 Animating the occasion with the popular Christian song Trust and Obey, Prophet T.B. Joshua analyses the way and manner in which Christ builds His home in our hearts through the Word: “As the Word dominates, rules and sanctifies our spirit’s nature, He is building Himself and making Himself a part of us. The faith bracelet will help you as you meditate the Word, it will dominate your heart; it will rule your heart and sanctify your spirit’s nature”. Speaking further, the man of God highlighted the relationship between meditating on the Word and uninhibited communion with God: “Meditation in the Word is a visit with God. As you meditate in the Word, it becomes part of us and we become a part of it. Meditation is not thinking but more than that because when we talk about thinking, we talk about the senses. Think more”.

Re-emphasising the essence of meditation in the life of a Christian, the man of God urged the congregation to embrace the practice as it affords them the opportunity of getting deeper insights into life and divine direction. He frowned on the lukewarm attitude of many towards the practice: “There is an area in our life we have neglected – meditation. There must be a quiet time when you sit down, imagine if this life is over, what is next. What you have never experienced before, think about that. Think of those who have gone. Think about what they left behind. This is what you have never heard. What you have never experienced before, think about it, if life is over. Think of those who have gone, friends, colleagues or relatives. After that, you can take your faith bracelet and begin to meditate”.

Explaining the role faith plays in our walk with God, Prophet T.B. Joshua stated that it is very difficult to please God without it. Hence, the need for Christians to exercise their faith at all times in order to be able to unleash their wonder-working potentials: “Only faith pleases God. Faith is perfected by our acting on the Word. How do you act on the Word? This is the secret. Faith comes through hearing the Word of God. There is more to that. Faith is hearing and obeying. You cannot obey that Word when the Word has not dominated, ruled and lived in your heart. Faith is like a coin. Faith is a Heavenly currency. You must take this Word to heart. It is what is dominating your heart that you can shout. This will replace everything”.

In conclusion, Prophet T.B. Joshua spoke on the secret of faith: “The secret of faith, the Word must dwell, live and rule your heart. Faith is perfected by our acting on the Word. The Word must dominate, rule and live in our heart. This is the secret of faith”. And for those who allow God to make His home in their hearts, Prophet T.B. Joshua describes them in the following words: “The Lord has given you a foundation. If today were your last day on earth, what will happen? You will begin to see revelation about yourself and others and from there, God will strengthen your mind to remember. The whole world doesn’t know what will happen next. This is what Christianity is all about – God’s opinion about yourself and others”.

FROM PAUPER TO PROPRIETOR

AKE LISIYINE PIUS (1)Akelisiyine Pius came to The SCOAN from Ghana with the problem of abject poverty (to the extent that he could not take care of his family).  Before going back to Ghana, he received the Anointing Water and believed that his life would turn around. After ministering the Anointing Water in the name of Jesus, he dreamt that Prophet T.B. Joshua was walking with him through a school. When he woke up, he started praying, although he had never had any previous thought of starting a school project. A few weeks later, his attention was brought to an abandoned school in his area. He purchased and took over the school and started operating in the middle of the academiAKE LISIYINE PIUS (2)c year. Despite this, the process was very smooth because God was behind it. The school started with 65 students but before the end of that week, the school was filled up with 100 students. Now, to the glory of God, there are 330 students studying in his school. To add to the facility of the school, he bought a small van. Seeing the school was growing bigger and bigger, he had to buy a bigger school bus in addition to the small van. As the number of pupils continued to increase at a fast rate, he had to purchase an additional coaster bus to properly serve the pupils. Mr Pius advises everyone to do what God has put in their heart with faith.

“I SLEPT WITH 30 MEN A DAY…” – CONFESSIONS OF A DIABOLIC PROSTITUTE

MISS ASATU SHERIFFIf evil could be adequately defined in a story, Asatu’s would perhaps be a model. A background stooped in satanic secrecy opened the gateway for wickedness of unimaginable proportions to work through her. Initiated at a tender age into a cult that thrived on the belief in animal superiority, Asatu’s private parts were marked for destruction in a sick ritual. Her parents’ premature death led her to seek spiritual help in darker places that only ended up entangling her deeper in bondage. An attempt at marriage ended abysmally as the relationship that spawned two young children ended with her being thrown onto the streets. Desperate and smarting with anger, Asatu succumbed to the lure of ‘greener pastures’ abroad, following a strange lady to Nigeria.

Upon reaching Nigeria, the lady took her to a witchdoctor, whose charm, which promised to restore her marital bliss, ended up killing her estranged husband. Resorting to prostitution, Asatu roamed the four corners of Nigeria, sleeping with up to 30 men in a day to fend for herself. Burdened by her two young children, her willpower eventually whittled away to the point where the unthinkable became feasible – she ‘gave’ out her kids. “I have no ideas where they are right now,” she confessed to the shocked congregants at The SCOAN.

Eventually ending up in Lagos on the prostitution trail, the brothel where she ‘worked’ was broadcasting an unusual television station – Emmanuel TV. Upon watching and learning The SCOAN was located in Lagos, she made the decision to attend the service last week, tired of her dirty lifestyle. As Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for calmness to descend upon the congregants in the mass prayer, an incredible sequence of events unfolded for Asatu! A shocking, rumbling sensation welled within her stomach forcing her to her knees. Then, it came out. A disgusting item wrapped in red thread with a needle interwoven. The charm she had ingested many years ago in the home of a spiritualist had been forced out by God’s power!

After her deliverance, Asatu testified that the terrible dreams she previously had of dungeons and graveyards were gone as was the urge to engage in illicit prostitution.  “Believe in God,” she tearfully advised the somber congregation. “Leave evil and give your life to God. Only God has the final say in everything.”

 DOUBLE BLESSING THROUGH ANOINTING WATER MINISTRATION

MR & MRS DECKY ENYOINSM NUKURU (1)Mr. and Mrs. Decku alongside Miss Nukunu, Mrs. Decku’s younger sister came to The SCOAN with their lives full of challenges. While Mrs. Decku’s case was incessant miscarriages, her younger sister Miss Nukunu was suffering from abject poverty. Mrs Decku who had been married for three years would always have a nightmare anytime she MR & MRS DECKY ENYOINSM NUKURU (2)was pregnant and that experience always ended in her losing the pregnancy. Her husband was dejected about her condition and the state of things. The trio came to a conclusion to come to The SCOAN to receive the ministration of the Anointing Water. As the couple went back to Ghana, they prayed, ministered the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name and met as husband and wife. One day, while they visited the doctor to attend to his health, it was also confirmed that his wife was pregnant. Praise the Lord! Miss Nikunu on her own part, after receiving the ministration of the Anointing Water, received a call from a friend who owns a big company in Ghana. She was offered a job as a salesMR & MRS DECKY ENYOINSM NUKURU (3)representative for one of the branches of his company. Her salary was increased ten times more than what she earned before. Indeed, with God’s power, nothing is impossible!

 

 

INABILITY TO WALK SUCCUMBS TO THE POWER OF GOD

MR GODWIN NWOKOLO (1)Nwakolo Godwin came to The SCOAN from Delta State, Nigeria with difficulty in walking due to lumbar spondylosis. As a result, he could neither walk well nor stand for more than five minutes. He could not sleep because of the excruciating pain he had. He had visited several places in search of solution to this problem but all to no avail. He then decided to come to The SCOAN for his healing. He was arranged at The SCOAN Prayer Line. Immediately Prophet T.B. Joshua touched him, he received instant healing. He could not explain how this happened; all he knew was that he was healed. Now that he is healed, he can do anything. Indeed, there is never a problem that Jesus cannot solve and there is never a sickness that Jesus cannot heal.MR GODWIN NWOKOLO (2)

DELIVERED FROM THE SPIRIT OF PORNOGRAPHY

The prophecy that his addiction to the internet had led to the collapse of his marriage hit him like a bolt out of the blues. Mr. Childress Simmons Jnr. Could not deny the cataclysmic turn his life had taken after the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua had uncovered the dark corner of his life.

His mother’s separation from his father was the beginning of his doom. With no choice, he went with his mother to live with her new found love, his step-father. There, his young life was infected with the spirit of pornography through his step-brother who actually introduced him into the evil practice, being in ownership of a rich library of pornographic magazines and videos. At the tender age of 10 he was already addicted. His young life was already shedding its innocence and was at the trench destruction. With time, the contagious hands of pornography continued to pull him down the abyss of deeper addiction. He would keep unholy vigils just to satiate his senses with pornographic videos. The act became some sort of escapist mechanism for him whenever he wanted to cure himself of depression.

Due to his excessive nocturnal ritual of watching pornographic videos, he became a social menace; he would sleep while driving as a result of exhaustion. His mindset was corrupted to the extent that he had no regard for women. After all, he had seen it all! Those things that made womanhood sacred were the same he saw and trivialised at will. Haunting him like a ghost passionate to destroy its target at all cost, his addiction to pornography became the Achilles Hill of his life. The only thing that motivated him into marriage was the satisfaction of his sexual fantasies – a disease which his addiction had brought about. His marriage eventually crumbled after few months when he realised that his appetites were insatiable just as his diseased thinking was incurable. His knack for masturbation increased with every successful pornographic exercise.

MR CHIDRESS SIMMONSMr Simmons was lost to world that was destroying him gradually. He was even unaware that he needed help. He was deeply engrossed in the unwholesome practices of masturbation and pornography even when a second marriage was consummated. “All this while, I knew I was killing myself but there was nothing I could do about it. In my second relationship I started looking for a solution. I started fasting and going to prayer houses”. It dawned on him that he needed God to deliver him from the dungeon of self-destruction he had thrown himself into.

At the peak of his evil engagement, he would be on the internet having sex with strangers via webcam. His lustful ways graduated rather pitiably and made him a sorry case. “The spirit of lust as a result of pornography led me to get married to women who were divorced and had bad marriages…

At the Prayer Line, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for me and I immediately knew I was delivered. Since my deliverance, I don’t look at women as physical objects anymore; I see them as daughters of God that need to be respected and also my heart has been renewed. As a young man, I am now excelling in everything I put my hand to. I was at the rock bottom; I was hopeless before I came to The SCOAN. I advise young people to desist from pornography because it will only open doors for demons into their lives. I also want parents to keep good watch over the affairs of their children”.

THE POWER IN MEDITATION


Prophet T.B. JoshuaOn Sunday February 9, 2015, the mighty presence of God was felt at the church service of The SCOAN. Apart from the edifying ministrations of the Emmanuel Singers, the passion and excitement of the congregation to connect with Heaven through prayer added spiritual substance to the day.

The man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua engaged the congregation in an enlightening yet instructive message about MEDITATION. According to the man of God, “Meditation brings revelation… Meditation in the Word is a visit with God. The Word becomes a part of us by meditation. If meditation in the Word is a visit with God, this means, meditation makes the Word a part of us. The Word becomes a part of us by meditation. Today, we talk of prayer and fasting but I have never heard where they lay emphasis on meditation”. In other words, the essence of meditation in the life of a Christian is phenomenal. Unfortunately, most Christians prefer to jump into fasting and prayer rather than meditate on the Word which in actual fact hastens the communion between man and God. It is when we constantly meditate on the Word of God that we receive heavenly insights for the future.

Speaking further, Prophet T.B. Joshua bemoaned the attitude of Christians to meditation, stressing that it is the foundation of every good plan or vision that sets out to prosper: “It is an issue Christians play down but it is fundamental; it is a foundation. People play down the word, ‘meditation’. For your plan towards a business to work smoothly, you must sit down and meditate where you are going, how much you need to spend, etc. It may be when you are lying on your bed in the night privately. You may be crying alone or smiling alone. Meditation means think more. Faith comes when the Word prevails over the thinking processes.” Describing meditation further as “more than thinking”, the man of God posited that it can take a Christian to the level when he or she becomes absorbed. According to him, that is the level where most Christians begin to speak in tongues: “When you engage in more than thinking, you may start crying or smiling, talking alone. You are talking to God and you have forgotten yourself. This is the level you need to go. This is the realm you can enjoy your life, not the realm you are. When you are thinking, you are aware of what is happening around you but when you are more than thinking, you are not aware of what is happening. This is the realm that can offer you speaking in tongues”.

Prophet T.B. Joshua concluded that we cannot reach God when our hearts are heavy with burdens: “You need a free spirit to interact, relate with God, to get on with God but your spirit is not free. The moment you discover that burden that put you in bondage, you can remove it by prayer. A free spirit is sensitive to the Spirit of God. The first thing you need to do is remove the burden. Faith makes the Word prevail”.

During Mass Prayer, the man of God took authority in the mighty name of Jesus to release those in whatever kind of bondage, ranging from career to health issues: “Whatever area of your life that is troubled, begin to command calmness. My career, business, spiritual life, destiny – I command calmness!”

EVANGELIST ANNEIn an earlier exhortation, Evangelist Anne, speaking on a message titled, ‘TRUST IN THE LORD BEFORE THE LIONS ARRIVE’ enjoined Christians to always be of good cheer in times of trials. She discouraged the attitude of asking God questions when things go awry, observing that what our Creator requires at all times is total trust in Him as exemplified by many biblical heroes. She also frowned at the faithless outbursts of unbelievers who would quickly blame God for all their failings: If you ask someone who doesn’t believe in God why he doesn’t believe. The answer you will likely get is this – “If a loving God exists, why does He stand by and do nothing when others are hurting? Where was he when my innocent brother was jailed for a crime he never committed? Where was he when as a graduate, I was denied my right in society and had to join the men of the underworld? Where was he when everyone in my family became so poor that I now cater for them through prostitution?”

Encouraging Christians not to make hasty conclusions about God when they are faced with temporary challenges, she also reminded them that the present should not be used to judge the future because, the present might be gloomy but with God, there will always be a future full of hope: “Today, many act more like God’s enemies than his friends because of an inability to see beyond their immediate situation. They become rebellious in nature and often misinterpret God’s silence as rejection; they surrender to their fears while their hearts dream of a miracle and are quick to conclude that there is no future/hope/God!”

Evangelist Anne made reference to biblical characters like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego as well as Job and explained in detail how their trust in God turned their situations around even in the face of grave dangers: “Many biblical heroes had their faith challenged in a new way but they never cut off their dependence upon God. They knew that personal fulfilment and achievement came from learning from both positive and negative experiences; that there were no short cuts to spiritual maturity and that in their spiritual walk with God, there would be good and hard times”.

Concluding, Evangelist Anne admonished Christians about the antics of satan who would always want them to dwell on things God has not given them rather than those He has given them, stating that they are all ploys by the devil to place the world in their hearts so that Christ would be displaced: “Because satan knows he cannot stop those with spiritual insight into Christ Jesus, his main aim is to get you to forget all God has given and focus on what you don’t have.  But a Christian cannot afford to forget God than the Israelites could in their daily life. You can deny, ridicule, slander, and ignore God but His love remains constant and unchanging”.

MORNING WATER WASHES ADDICTION AWAY

MISS LUCY AGADAOne day Lucy Agada from Benue was taking a stroll in a field; she would never have imagined that this seemingly harmless act would be a turning point for the worse in her life. As she was walking, she smelt the scent of anthill soil and it appealed to her. Taking some from the ground, she began to eat it. That was the beginning of her addiction. Before long, she was totally addicted to the anthill soil, preferring it to ordinary food. To her, it tasted like chocolate and she would eat it four to five times a day. Her friends and family members thought she was mentally ill and she was very embarrassed but the craving continued all the more. Each time she tried to stop it, the desire would increase. The addiction went on for four years. She became desperate and in faith decided to come to The SCOAN for deliverance. At the Prayer Line, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for her and ministered the Morning Water on her. She received her deliverance and the desire for the anthill soil vanished as quickly as it came. Free and full of joy, she testified to the great change in her life. She can now eat normally to the glory of God!

 

AFFLICTION OF ASTHMA ENDED

MISS DUME UCHE RITAMiss Dume Rita’s life was brought to a standstill when she was diagnosed with asthma two years ago. This sickness was not just ordinary asthma. It was an affliction that affected every area of her life. She would have attacks three times a week and would be rushed to hospital at times in a critical condition. She did not look for work with any enthusiasm knowing that no company would accept her with such an affliction. She would have to dress warmly all the time in an attempt to guard against the frequent attacks. She was also allergic to perfume and immediately she smelt the scent of strong perfume, an attack would start. Watching Emmanuel TV, she believed that her sickness would be wiped away if she could just get hold of the Morning Water.

A friend came to The SCOAN and received the Morning Water. She gave it to Rita and after ministering it, the asthma vanished completely. She began to breathe normally and strength and life returned to her; she is healed! Now, she can use perfume and is no longer taking regular trips to the hospital. Not only was she healed physically; her career also turned around. After two years of unemployment, despite being a Business Management Graduate, she was blessed with a new job as a Retail Manager in a bank.

To cap it all, she was also healed of severe menstrual pain after Ministering the Morning Water. Her setback and sickness has truly been wiped away, in the name of Jesus Christ!

 

FULL MOVEMENT RETURNS THROUGH THE MORNING WATER

MRS PATRICIAImagine having to sleep in a seated position every night. How would it feel not to be able MRS PATRICIA 2to look back, to the right or to the left? This was the unfortunate position Mrs. Patricia Onwubiko found herself in. Diagnosed with cervical spondylosis, she was given a neck collar which was to be worn at all times. This neck collar did little to ease the severe pain she was passing through. Not able to move around or even eat, she was truly in a sorry state. That was before she was brought to The SCOAN and received prayer from Prophet T.B. Joshua with the Morning Water. With just one spray, the muscles in her neck became loose and her bones were shifted back to their original position. She began turning her neck freely to the glory of God! Now free from pain, she threw away her neck collar, rejoicing at the healing power of Jesus Christ!

EMMANUEL!
