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”.

TESTIMONIES

God is no respecter of persons and situations. No matter the problem; irrespective of how long it has existed, God will continue to level every situation to the glory of His name. At The SCOAN, testimonies are the greatest proof of God’s presence. The following testimonies will build your faith and inspire you to hold on dearly to God. Emmanuel!

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”.

TESTIMONIES

At The SCOAN, testimonies are a daily affair – a confirmation of the wondrous presence of God! With every testimony, His name is exalted on high and His mercies shall continue to endure and abide with us all in Jesus’ name. The following testimonies are proof that you too can be a partaker of His divine grace. Emmanuel!

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!

 

AT THE LORD’S FEET


PTBJThe verve and cheerful aura radiated by worshippers depicted how precious they all hold The SCOAN Live Sunday Service in their hearts. The atmosphere was fresh as the ever-vibrant choir edified the congregants in the auditorium and overflow congregations with their edifying renditions, brimming with heavenly zest.

Evangelist Annette’s message was deep and incisive, like a precious EVANGELIST ANNETTEseed sown into fertile soil. Titled AT THE LORD’S FEET, the message highlighted the nature of man in relation with his or her ability to make the right choices, bearing in mind the fact that God even gave His only begotten Son for our salvation as Christians. Have we made the most of that divine privilege? She urged Christians to make the wisest decision of establishing an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ: “When God created man, He gave him the right to life. Within that right was discretion. In other words, Jesus Christ gave man a mind and the ability to choose between right and wrong. In life, man is given the freedom to choose from the many alternatives that surround him. What choice have you made concerning Jesus Christ? Have you chosen to make Him your Lord and personal Saviour or otherwise? Life’s biggest decision is what you do with Jesus Christ”.

Evangelist Annette further shed light on the vanity of human wishes, attractions and aspirations. She observed that the material fancies and attractions of the world are not worth living for, compared to the everlasting joy and glory inherent in a life dedicated to the service of God: “Today, many make the world their heart’s delight. Many embrace the world desperate to be satisfied by it. But what we need is in God’s Word. No matter how many years you work or strive trying to acquire wealth – the best car, beautiful house, children; you can never be satisfied by them. Satisfaction is not about having children, money or other worldly possessions; you have to experience God. Until you experience God, there will be dissatisfaction – a sense of hunger to know what life is all about, a desire to know what happens after life is over”. 


UNCOUNTABLE TESTIMONIES: LIKE SAND ON THE SEA SHORE

The glory of God endures forever; so do the wonderful songs of thanksgiving He continues to put on the lips of His children. God is truly doing wondrous works at The SCOAN. The following testimonies are some selected from a multitude to inspire your faith and prepare you for your own miracle which is already on the way in Jesus’ name. No matter the situation, God’s hands are not too short to locate you.


FAVOURED IN THE MIDST OF THE MULTITUDE
Engineer Abijor Obukowho, who graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering, had applied for many jobs but was told that he lacked the necessary experience as an Engineer. Due to the high unemployment rate, he constantly met with disappointment and this gave him frustration. Having visited The SCOAN, he ministered the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name and soon after applied online for a government position as an Engineer. He travelled to Abuja and among 7,000 people, to his greatest surprise and joy, he was selected for the job! Standing before the congregation, he happily displayed the letter of employment.

Advising people about the Anointing Water, he said, “It will put you at an advantage. It will locate you at the place of your destiny”.

DELIVERED AND PROMOTED

As if eight years of career stagnation was not bad enough, Sergeant Leonard Ekeh was also tormented with a never-ending addiction to alcohol, smoking and womanizing. While his colleagues received their due promotions as time went by, it was a different story for Sergeant Leonard Ekeh who drowned his frustration in ceaseless drinking, smoking and chasing different women. One day, his father introduced him to Emmanuel TV and gave him a bottle of Anointing Water. These changed his life forever.

He ministered the Anointing Water and prayed in Jesus’ name and truly, things took a turn for the better. He experienced deliverance and suddenly realized that he no longer felt the desire to smoke, drink or chase women.  He was also asked to go on a peacekeeping mission in Dafur, South Sudan and it was there that his promotion happened! Among all his colleagues, he was the only one promoted to the position of Staff Sergeant. Advising Christians, he said: “No matter the circumstances, believe in God. The best is yet to come”.

PROMOTED AND DELIVERED FROM ADDICTION

A Senior Inspector of Immigration in Nigeria faced shameful stagnation for seven years. Each term, after writing the normal exams for promotion, he would be greatly disappointed as his colleagues would receive promotion but he would remain at the same level year after year. On top of this crisis, he also found himself increasingly addicted to smoking cigarettes. He started smoking individual cigarettes then moved on to packs of cigarettes and then rolls of cigarettes each day. He was constantly discouraged.

Then one day his sister brought Anointing Water to him from The SCOAN. He prayed in the name of Jesus that God should break every chain holding him back from his divine life and destiny. He them ministered the Anointing Water on the answer sheets for his next exam. At night, after completing the exam, he had a dream in which Prophet T.B. Joshua called him and told him to go and collect his promotion letter. He woke up and shared the news with his family, who immediately gave thanks to God for the breakthrough. When he arrived at work, his boss called and told him he had been promoted from Senior Inspector of Immigration to Principle Inspector of Immigration.

Along with the promotion was his deliverance from the strong addiction to cigarette smoking. Today, he is promoted and free from cigarette to the glory of God!

HEALED OF HERNIA IN JESUS’ NAME

Fourteen days after they had their baby boy,4 discovered that their bundle of joy had developed a swelling on his scrotum. They took him to the hospital where the doctor diagnosed the problem as a hernia. Mrs Okeke was able to get an empty bottle of Anointing Water, refilled it with pure water and prayed in Jesus’ name. After her prayer, she ministered the Anointing Water on him and saw that the swelling was moving from his scrotum to his stomach. He later excreted and went into a deep sleep.  She checked his excreta and discovered her baby had passed out a black stone. She noticed that the symptoms he was usually having stopped and that motivated her to take him to the hospital for a test where, to the amazement of the doctors, it was confirmed that the hernia was gone and the baby had a normal pelvic scan. Mr Okeke was elated and gave glory to God for delivering their baby. They advised to Christians to trust in God and believe that whatever the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua has blessed, is anointed for breakthrough.

SICKLE CELL SHATTERED 

Emmanuel Okoro Imagine a child who could not play with his friends; a student who could not attend school. Such was the case of Emmanuel Okoro who was born with Sickle Cell Anaemia. His life consisted of falling sick, being rushed to the hospital, receiving treatment and blood, only to return home with the same weakness and lifeless limbs. His case was so severe that he could not attend classes regularly due to the extreme fatigue. When at school, he found it difficult to concentrate and impossible to play with other children. One beautiful morning, his family brought him to The SCOAN and he received prayer from Prophet T.B. Joshua.

Little did he imagine that just one prayer would bring a radical transformation to his life. When they returned to their home in Delta, Nigeria, the family immediately saw drastic changes in their son. His energy suddenly returned and did abate. He was able to bathe himself that night and started playing with friends outside. When it was time for school, he got up and got ready by himself. The days passed and he realized he had not missed any day of school and had not had to visit the hospital. Believing that their miracle had come, the family took their son back to the hospital for a test and was delighted to receive a result that showed negative to Sickle Cell Anaemia. Their son was finally free, in Jesus’ name. The Okoros advised all parents to rush their children to God whenever they face family challenges so that He will see them through.

LANCE CORPORAL RECEIVES HEALING

Lance Corporal Adejumo Mutiu, a soldier in the Nigerian Army found himself in a terrible accident in Enugu, Nigeria in Lance Corporal Adejumo which he fractured his tibia and fibula. He was rushed to a hospital and from then on he could not walk. He was confined to a pair of crutches. His wife was practically doing everything for him. In the military hospital where he was being treated, he would watch Emmanuel TV and his faith grew. He decided to come to The SCOAN Prayer Line and he was prayed for by Prophet TB. Joshua. Since then, he is able to walk and has gone back to his job as a soldier in the Nigerian Army. Mrs Adejumo, wife to Corporal Mutiu Adejumo whose joy knew no bounds, shared her harrowing experience saying, “…It became a burden to me because I had to do everything for him but I thank Jesus for healing him and now things are back to normal”.

OLD TESTAMENT WATER THERAPY TESTIMONIES 

Mary Inyang from Akwa-Ibom, Nigeria, a 70 year-old Central Bank of Nigeria pensioner, shared her joy at the transformation in her life after following the instruction in righteousness of the Water Therapy. She used to experience pain in her joints, internal heat and would wake up every day tired and stiff but after the water therapy, all became a thing of the past. Now she is able to move freely like a young woman! She can sleep at night peacefully and no longer suffers from internal heat. Appreciating the man of God for this instruction that has flushed her system, she advised the youth of today, “Instead of drinking alcohol and taking tablets, listen to this instruction from God through Prophet T.B. Joshua – come close to God”.

WATER THERAPY WASHES AWAY SEVERE SINUSITIS IN 68 YEAR OLD WOMAN

Mrs. Stella ObiahMrs. Stella Obiah, 68 years old suffered from severe sinusitis for many years. She was no longer able to breathe through her nose but was breathing through her mouth. She complained that dust and different particles carried through the air always entered her passages and caused her pain and irritation. This was the life she was living in her old age as a result of the sinusitis. After the man of God introduced the Water Therapy, she said that she and the other members of the Old Testament Group discussed and agreed that this was the way forward for their lives. As a grandmother, she realized she had a responsibility to be a good example and began taking the Water Therapy for herself and her family. As she began drinking the water, she realized her breathing passages became clear. She no longer had to breathe through her mouth but began breathing normally through her nose. She is now free from sinusitis and advised all to keep to the instruction in righteousness from God’s servant as it is truly the secret to good health.

After the breathtaking testimonies, prophetic messages were delivered by Prophet T.B. Joshua to individuals, revealing the root cause of their problems and providing solution in Jesus’ name. The Prophet then moved to the prayer line where countless received healing and deliverance through the Word of God working in the Spirit. All received a touch as later, Prophet T.B. Joshua offered mass prayer and the congregation as a whole received the fulfilment of God’s promises in their lives. They left the service rejoicing and glorifying God for their mighty deeds, proclaiming that they would be the next to share their testimonies on Emmanuel TV!

DISCOVERING YOUR REAL VALUE IN THE MIDST OF TRIALS


DADDYFrom the Candle Light Service of 31st December, 2014 to the Sunday Service of 4th January, 2015, the atmosphere at The SCOAN has been spiritually intense. While the entire congregation, just like the whole world, awaited the successful cross-over into a new year, it was a great suspense of sorts. Though, we all started the journey from the very first day of 2014, not all of us have been fortunate to see the end of the year or even witness the advent of a new year. Yet, all glory and honour must be given to the Most High God who in all His omniscience, knows best.

CROWD3CROWD2The anointed message and instruction coming from the mouth of God to those present in theCROWD1 church and the myriad of viewers worldwide for the New Year was the simple Word: Good Morning. The man of God explained,“You are a plant. You need dew because you are dry. Your business needs dew, your health needs dew and your career needs dew. Dew is in the morning. Joy comes in the morning. Say Good morning my health! Good morning my business! Good morning my career! Good morning to nations, continents, the whole world – Good Morning to you all. This year you shall continue to live in the morning. When people greet you ‘Good afternoon,’ greet them ‘Good morning’. When people greet you ‘Good evening’ or ‘Good night,’ greet them ‘Good morning’. This Word is anointed for you.”CROWD4

Being the last day of the year, the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua talked about DISCOVERING YOUR REAL VALUE, a message that was very timely bearing in mind the imperative significance of living within the scope of our God-given destinies. Until a person discovers him or herself, he or she will continue to wallow in ignorance and failure, without achieving God’s purpose for his/her life. The man of God had earlier told the congregation that the purity of heart was a prerequisite for expecting a trouble-free new year: “If you are expecting a new year, you must be pure in heart if not 2014; I mean the troubled year 2014 will continue in 2015. To get rid of the trouble, for you to overcome the trouble, is not a thing of the flesh. You need deliverance to overcome the trouble”.

DADDYSpeaking further on the same message at the Sunday Service of 4th January, 2015, the man of God expatiated on the essence of discovering one’s real value. According to him, our real value resides in our spirit and our willingness to surrender it to the ways of God. We cannot operate within our real values of spiritual power and authority if we allow the distractions of life take the greater part of us: “The real thing about us is our spirit. If our real thing is our spirit, our attention should be more on the spirit. You can either yield yourself to God or the devil because you are a free moral agent. God has given us discretion. I cannot just force you to get healed; I need your faith to do so. There is so much distraction. That is why we have this for you and there is an anointed word for you: Take more of me, give me more of you. The more you think about what you read, the more your spirit acts on the Word. Meditation brings revelation”. Each and every person present was given the New Anointing Sticker inscribed with the New Year message: Brethren, Good morning as a point of contact to help them open the New Year with prayer.

In conclusion, the man of God enlightened the congregation on the therapeutic dimensions of water, stressing that the spiritual and the physical must work in tandem. He explained in details how early morning intake of water helps flush the system of unwanted waste and cleanses the human body. It was a very instructive moment and the gains remain innumerable.

He moved to the Prayer Line to minister healing, deliverance and restoration to the teeming crowd that have been waiting for God’s hand upon their lives.

EVANGELIST OLAMIDEEarlier, Evangelist Olamide had engaged the minds of the congregation with her deeply edifying message –YOUR SITUATION AS A CHRISTIAN. She vividly captured the Christian life in its most realistic nature, observing that living the Christian life was not a bed of roses but one full of trials and temptations. She urged the congregation to be of good cheer even in times of trials because they are the elements that make victory worth the while when it eventually comes: “In our spiritual walk with the Lord, we have good times and hard times; a time to enjoy and a time for restraint. A time to be born, a time to grow, a time to die, a time to face persecution, a time to overcome and a time to show the proceeds of victory. A man without a situation is a man without a future. The journey to the throne is not a bed of roses but of thorns, hardship, snakes which points us to trouble and problems”. Evangelist Olamide went further to cite numerous biblical examples of God’s servants like Joseph, Moses and Daniel who faced one tribulation and the other yet the glory of God was manifested and magnified in their situations. God would always allow us to face trials just as He allowed the devil to tempt Job. Our attitude to the trial is what pushes God into restoring us even unto greater levels than we envisage.

Concluding, she urged Christians to brace up in the midst of trials and seek God’s directions no matter how hard the situation may be, stressing that whatever God says is the ultimate: “No matter how hard your situation may seem, when God manifest His strength in your weakness, you will overcome. For when you are weak then you are strong. So whatever situation you may be in, find out what is God saying through that situation because what God says is the answer. To walk with the Lord in all situations is to ask Him for direction. To ask the Lord for direction is to open our eyes of faith so that we can see the higher hand that is leading us to salvation”.

TESTIMONIES LIKE RIVERS OF WATER

Like rivers of water that will never dry, more and more people continue to throng The SCOAN, testifying to the mighty works of God in their lives. Faith is the only thing you need to be one of those to testify to God’s wonderful works. As you read these testimonies, may your faith in God be ignited like never before for your breakthrough, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

FROM BANKRUPTCY TO MILLIONS

“Mr Maphoto, we need to talk” the voice on the phone was both grim and harsh. “We have no choice but to terminate your existing contracts.” It was a message every businessman feared most – bankruptcy.

MR MORPHOTO [BREAKTHROUGH TESTIMONY (AW)]

Penniless and verging on hopeless, the young South African man was at a crossroads. Courageously deciding to turn his cares into prayers, he sought the face of God after his fledgling business inexplicably nosedived to the point of financial ruin. Resolving to visit The SCOAN in Nigeria for divine intervention, he was privileged to receive the Anointing Water during his stay within the church. Upon returning to South Africa, he ministered it on a prospective business proposal he had mustered a miniscule amount to begin. Favour flowed. Several months later, an eight million rand contract was in his pocket and his fortunes had completely reversed.

“The blood that Jesus shed on the Cross of Calvary 2000 years ago still works today,” Mr Maphoto told the congregation at The SCOAN. “God is working through the Anointing Water mightily!”

MY LIFE CHANGED AFTER I VISITED THE FAMILIES OF THE MARTYRS OF FAITH

Frantic. Hectic. Manic. Johanna Matli’s work schedule in the radio and television industry left little time for her family, let alone her relationship with God. As her work levels rose, so did her stress and blood pressure. The result was her health dwindling dramatically, ending in two partial strokes and a medical diagnosis of hypertensive heart disease.JOHANNA MATLI [AW TESTIMONY]

Taking medicine daily and a familiar face at the local clinic for blood pressure checks, her entire life forcibly revolved around her health challenges which kept worsening. As a viewer of Emmanuel TV, when Johanna heard Prophet T.B. Joshua’s instruction to visit the families of the Martyrs Of Faith, she considered her schedule and reluctantly concluded she could not find the time to engage in such.

However, the repeated call from Prophet T.B. Joshua to care for them continually bombarded her heart to the point where the South African decided to make some sacrifices. She visited the family members of the Martyrs Of Faith, believing by faith that obedience to this Divine instruction would work wonders in her life. After her first visit, while engaging in her regular clinical check-up, Johanna got the shock of her life!

“Madam, your blood pressure has reduced from 220/ 170 to 130/90,” the surprised doctor informed her. “What did you do?” Holding up her medical reports confirming her miraculous healing before The SCOAN congregation, Mrs Matli testified that her health had transformed and her priorities shifted toward Heavenly things by her obedience to this instruction. “It is a wonderful thing to create time to help others,” she concluded. “Please, make sure you obey Prophet T.B. Joshua’s instructions in righteousness.”

SPIRIT OF DOG DISGRACED!

“There is a lady here with the spirit of a dog,” the prophecy rang forth. Totanang’s heart skipped a beat. Prophet T.B. Joshua was talking to her. Taking a step forward from her seat towards the altar of The SCOAN, she suddenly lost all consciousness of the following sequence of events. It was only when a clip of her deliverance was replayed that she saw herself barking and gesticulating like a dog as the evil spirit within her was exposed by the prophecy and subsequent prayer.

Rising up after the deliverance,TOTANANG KEBOPELWANG Totanang’s life never remained the same! Upon returning to Botswana, the spirit of anger that had ruined her relationships and rendered her jobless stopped. Her journeys from sangomas to spiritualists ended and a renewed desire to serve God and pursue her education was born. To her greatest surprise, as she continued to minister the Anointing Water, after five years of joblessness, Mrs. Kebopelwang was offered a job in the Botswana Telecommunications Corporation, a position she never even applied for. The job enabled her to finish her studies abroad in Swaziland – something she had never dreamed was a possibility prior to her deliverance. Her word of advice was concise: “Whenever you receive the Anointing Water, minister it in faith – that is the only way it can work in your life!”

OBEY GOD’S INSTRUCTIONS – YOUR DESTINY WILL BE RESHAPED!

Fervency welled within her heart. As Prophet T.B. Joshua encouraged viewers around the world to reach out to the relatives of the martyrs of faith, Mrs Chidraas could barely sit still. The desire to respond in faith to his instructionMRS CHIDRAAS & DAUGHTERsuperseded the barriers posed by her geographical location as she determinedly drove over three hours to Johannesburg to meet with the Emmanuel TV team the following day.

Both her and her daughter Koketso joined the teams extending love and care to the affected family members, giving sacrificially in the process. God’s blessings soon manifested in the life of Koketso. As a student in Scotland, UK, her passport was inexplicably held when she was due to return to South Africa for the December holidays. At the same period, her mother had a dream where she saw Prophet T.B. Joshua asking her what she wanted from God.
“I knelt down and prayed that God would release the passport of my daughter. Four days later, her passport was released! To our surprise, it was not just a student visa that she got but a residence permit in the UK,” she joyfully testified! Aside from this unique blessing, Koketso was further given the opportunity to partake in an exchange program with a student in USA – a feat the school had previously termed impossible due to her mother’s stay in South Africa.

“Act upon the instructions of Prophet T.B. Joshua and definitely, your destiny will be reshaped,” were her final words of advice.

FROM SCHOOL TEACHER TO SENIOR LECTURER!

After 18 years of teaching in a small Zambian school with paltry pay and dingy, dirty classrooms, poverty and squalor still surrounded Elizabeth. Never in her wildest dreams did the middle-aged Zambian envisage the ladder of success she was about to dramatically and emphatically scale after being introduced to The SCOAN!MRS ELIZABETH KAMPAMBA [BREAKTHROUGH TESTIMONY]

Upon praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua during a period of mass prayer, the first breakthrough miraculously manifested. Mrs. Kampamba was surprisingly chosen to be a Deputy Head Teacher in another Zambian school. This was rapidly followed by promotion to the position of School Inspector across the entire country! Receiving the Anointing Water at this point following a visit to The SCOAN, Elizabeth was content with the astounding breakthrough she had enjoyed and was preparing to retire since she neared the statutory age of 55. Before now she had trekked to work; she became financially secure enough to be able to purchase a brand new car! However, God was not finished yet!

An interview for the post of a senior lecturer in English at an international university in Zambia came forward and Elizabeth was one of 15 candidates considered. Several months later, Mrs. Kampamba received her retirement letter at 10am. Five hours later, another letter came through informing that she had been appointed to the post of senior lecturer! Truly, better is not good enough; the best is always yet to come!

POSITIONED FOR MERCY AND FAVOUR

“I was working like an elephant but eating like an ant.” Mrs. Zwane’s situation was dire and depressing. A single mother with three children to bring up, the revenue from her job disappeared as soon as it arrived as mounting responsibilities and burdens ate up her money at ease.MRS ZWANE BREAKTHROUGH TESTIMONY (AW)]

She was living in a small flat with her children when someone brought her the Anointing Water, encouraging her to minister it in faith. Being an ardent viewer of Emmanuel TV, Dikeledi took no time to use the Anointing Water, praying in faith that she would be positioned for God’s mercy and favour. Indeed, she was divinely positioned!

Several months later, blessing after blessing followed favour after favour. Mrs. Zwane is now the owner of a brand new car, lives in an exotic holiday house in an affluent area of Johannesburg and enjoys not only financial security but has more than enough for her and her children! What a God we have to worship; what a Son we have to praise; what a future lies before us!

KIDNEY STONES ANNIHILATED THROUGH THE ANOINTING WATER

MR MEJANG PENECK [FREE FROM KIDNEY STONE (AW)]Mr. Mejang Reneck from Cameroon came to The SCOAN with the problem of kidney stones. He always experienced chronic pain in his side as a result of this affliction. He received the Anointing Water and after ministering it in the name of Jesus Christ, he was completely healed. Now, he can exercise, play football and has returned to normal life – pain free! He brought two documents, showing when he was diagnosed with the kidney stones and after the ministration of the Anointing Water, when he returned to the hospital. He no longer has any trace of the kidney stones. He advised the world to believe in the God they serve and that if they put their trust in God, He is able to manifest Himself in their lives again and again.

ASTHMA ATTACKS ABOLISHED

Siyabonga Mlewa was born into the bondage of asthma, which was a burden that weighed heavily on his life and that of his mother. When the attacks came, his chest would become tight and his lungs would start to close. The doctors said there was no cure and that he would have to use a breathing machine, known as a nebulizer for the rest of his life. The nebulizer became a part of his everyday routine, having to take it with him wherever he would go. At school he was limited and unable to participate in sporting activities. At home, his mother would take care of him keeping a watchful eye on her son’s bad health. His mother had to regularly leave her job when attacks came at any interval.

SIYABONGA MLEWA & MOTHER [FREE FROM ASTHMA & USING BREATHING MACHINE (PRAYER LINE1)]

After eleven years of sickness and struggle, Mrs Mlewa managed to bring her son to The SCOAN believing God’s divine intervention. They came and Siyabonga received prayer from Wise Man Racine at The SCOAN Prayer Line, where he demonstrated how he would use the nebulizer. In moments of receiving prayer in Jesus’ name Siyabonga thanked God for being healed. Today, three years later and some feet taller, Siyabonga came back to thank God for his complete freedom from the asthma formerly deemed incurable. Life has improved for both him and his mother whose joy cannot be quantified.

REMARKABLE RECONCILIATION

“I bought a cutlass and told my wife to kill me…” It had got that serious. Nehemiah’s tumultuous marriage disintegrated to the point where death appeared more meaningful than life. The heated internal turmoil reached boiling point when Nehemiah’s wife decided to leave him, taking their four children along with her. Four years passed. Four years without any communication, let alone the thought of reconciliation.

Increasingly frustrated in life and business, Nehemiah one day decided to visit The SCOAN, hoping for a Word that would change the course of his life. In the midst of the service, Prophet T.B. Joshua prophesied to him, revealing the root of his marital challenges lay in the amorous affairs he engaged in with a friend called Henry during his university days. Prophet T.B. Joshua ended his message to Nehemiah with a surprising, divinely inspired declaration – “Your wife will call you; you will come back with your testimony.” Wife? Testimony? The two words didn’t seem to compute within Nehemiah’s jaded reasoning.

Several weeks later, however, Nehemiah’s phone rang. It was his long-lost wife! Without any knowledge of the prophetic word, she was suddenly moved to call him and seek reconciliation, requesting forgiveness on her own part. The family were remarkably reconciled and returned to The SCOAN to testify that when God speaks, His Word will not return void of fulfillment.NEHEMIAH FAMILY BRECONCILIATION [PROPHECY]

All glory belongs to the Lord for He has ordered all so that the whole shall appear to be of grace. There is no room for any man’s boasting in their own ability or power for it is not our logic, philosophy or reasoning that brings these happenings to pass but the living Word of God. May God’s Word continue to abide in you and you in it in the coming year. Keep watching Emmanuel TV! Good Morning!

ANOINTING WATER TACKLES TATTOO TROUBLES


The problem that brought Mrs Favour Amorro from Rivers, Nigeria to The SCOAN was cancer of the arms. When she got married, her problems started when there was no peace in their marriage. Her frustration led her to go clubbing to ease her stress at home. One day a friend she met at the club who had tattoos, convinced her to get tattoos as well for fashion. She agreed to have six done but afterwards attacks started coming to her. In a dream, she was told that it was not a fashion tattoo but initiation and she belonged to the kingdom of darkness. She found herself going to oceans, eating strange food and was the victim of different attacks in her dreams. During the day, she had pain and fear and was unable to do her normal activities at home. She returned to the tattoo man to have them removed and he used a chemical to scratch the tattoos off her. The man explained that in three days, the ink would disappear and she would be free. Instead of the tattoos to be removed, each of the six tattoos became cancerous wounds on her arms and legs. The doctors didn’t know what to do about them and had no solution to the open sores besides offering drugs and injections. Seeing her sorry plight a friend advised her to go to The SCOAN to seek the mercy of God. Agreeing, she came and received the Anointing Water which she ministered all over her body immediately. When she got back to the hotel she prayed for forgiveness and healing with such conviction that even other people in the hotel heard her and came to join her in prayer as she ministered the Anointing Water. After the intense prayer and ministering the Anointing Water, she felt free and went to sleep. As she woke up the next day, she asked for breakfast which she had not had the appetite for and was able to eat well. In no time at all, the wounds had been completely healed and the sores covered up. Since then, she can wash, cook and bathe without any pain or problem. She no longer has any pain where the wounds were neither is she pursued by the satanic kingdom that had tried to ensnare and destroy her. She advised people that people should be wary of the devil’s schemes by being in constant prayer to God Almighty, our Saviour and Redeemer.

“I CRAWLED TO THE TV AND TOUCHED THE SCREEN…” – Incredible Testimony


Here is the miraculous testimony of Mr. Nicolas Mohlala who received an incredible healing through praying along with Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV! Indeed, distance is not a barrier to the Holy Spirit!

“For those of you who think the age of miracles has passed, you are lost! I have a testimony to share as God has added another year to my life. It is for the glory of God that I give this testimony. For those of you who know about my car accident that happened on 2nd April, you will agree with me on this.

“It was a terrible one! When I got to the hospital, my feet were swollen and an x-ray revealed that my two calcareous bones (in the heel) were broken beyond repair. My lateral hub, nose and mouth were severely damaged as well. I couldn’t even breathe properly!

“Later a woman who is a mother to my friend came in as she was there to visit the husband. She offered a prayer for me and ministered the Anointing Water she received from Prophet T.B. Joshua. I immediately felt better and they later removed the breathing mask from me.

“The Doctors were afraid to carry out an operation because they said the area affected was a complex structure of many bones joined together. They waited until the swelling reduced and then booked me for an operation. Even if I had the operation, I was told it would take me over six months sitting on the wheelchair before recovery. I prayed that God would somehow make a way for me not to be operated upon.

“The next morning, the doctors came and told me they cancelled the operation! I was rejoicing inside me knowing that God has answered my prayer. After two weeks I was discharged and given moon boots and crutches to go home. I could not even stand off my hospital bed because the pain was so severe. I used a wheelchair just to get to the car that took me home.

“It remained difficult for a week at home until one fateful Saturday when I was watching the Emmanuel TV Live Service from The SCOAN. There was a young lady with a similar problem to mine who was at the prayer line. I crawled to the TV to touch the screen as crawling was the quickest way I could move at that time!

“With faith, I touched the screen of Emmanuel TV and prayed along with the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, when he prayed for the lady. When he said, “Amen”, I said, “Amen” too! Immediately a force and strength entered me. I stood and walked down the passage praising God and shouting. My mum came running in and was shocked to see me walking and she rejoiced with me in tears.

“People of God, that is how I have been able to walk freely without the crutches ever since that day. You have to understand that I could not walk an inch even with one crutch before this miracle. I went to visit my friend that day and he asked me where my crutches were. I laughed and shared the wonderful testimony with him. Praise God!

“Brethren, God is alive and Jesus has risen from the dead. He is alive today. By His spirit, he can be anywhere, at anytime. No matter the problem you may be facing, don’t run away from God but run to Him. He will see you through. Glory be to God!”
