PROPHETIC REVELATION RECONCILES BROKEN MARRIAGE


Mrs Gloria Abhiwu from Ghana received a prophecy from Prophet T.B. Joshua regarding broken home in the family. At the prophet’s word, she broke down in tears. Confirming the word of prophecy, last week she had narrated that after marrying her husband in 2011, there had been no peace in the home. Her husband had confessed to her that he didn’t have any affection for her to the extent that he returned the wedding ring. After giving the word of prophecy, Prophet T.B. Joshua invited her husband, Dr Hilarious Abhiwu, a medical superintendent from Ghana and he attended The SCOAN to honour the prophet’s invitation. He explained that the prophecy was nothing but the truth which he had never confessed to anyone. He narrated that the marriage started on a wrong footing. Since the day they met each other, she kept on talking about marriage to the extent that her family was mounting pressure on him to marry their daughter. They attended marriage counselling due to his doubt in the marriage and she still had to convince him to tie the knot. Initially, he wanted to postpone the marriage but because of the pressure, he finally married her. Mr Abhiwu was speaking with bitterness that he had to abandon his education and economy because of the marriage, while his wife stayed with her parents for two years. Her mother put a lot of pressure on her daughter to get pregnant.
Inspired by the Holy Spirit, Prophet T.B. Joshua invited the mother of Mrs Abhiwu in order to settle the matter.

Today, the mother of Gloria, Mrs Theresa Agbovi having honoured the invitation of the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, received instructions in righteousness from the man of God of how to allow the young marriage to grow as it was a marriage from Heaven. The man of God said, “We need to thank our mum for her support”. Praying with the young couple, Prophet T.B. Joshua reconciled them, in Jesus name promising to counsel them further for the success of their marriage. As husband and wife embraced themselves, the prophet prayed for them and they both fell under the anointing of God. Now delivered from the pain of the past, they are set to face whatever challenges their marriage will face. Whatever deep hurt was caused by either party, they chose to hold on to the words of Prophet T.B. Joshua, “Whether you are right or wrong, you have no right to hold on to an offence”.

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!

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”.

DIG DEEP; FIGHT IT THROUGH IN FAITH


On Sunday 25th January 2015, the atmosphere in The SCOAN reverberated with echoes of edifying anthems from the Emmanuel Singers who encouraged the congregation with soul-lifting songs. As indicated by the attentive yet participatory inclination of the entire congregation, the songs from the Emmanuel Singers served as forerunner to the moment of exhortation when the mind must be fed with spiritual food for thought.

Prophet T.B. JoshuaEvangelist Catherine delivered a thought-provoking message titled DIG DEEP; FIGHT IT THROUGH. She captured the dynamics of the Christian race in uncertain and perilous times and put it in perspective from collective and individual angles. Citing the life of Apostle Paul as a typical example, she encouraged Christians to remain of good cheer in the face of all the trials and challenges that are part of life.

“In Romans 7:15, Apostle Paul said, ‘I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.’ But despite the predicament he found himself in, he did not stop, he did not give up, he did not allow his weakness to pull him down or tear him apart; he continued to run the race, to fight the good fight and he kept his faith. Our God – powerful and faithful to His faithful ones – raised him to such an extent that we still look to and learn from Paul as one of the greatest apostles that ever lived”.

Explaining the concept DIG DEEP, Evangelist Catherine uncovered hidden facts about appearance, packaging and deception. Just like the popular advertising lingo “appearance is not reality”, she urged Christians not to judge things based on their face value or appearance because appearance could be deceptive. Sometimes, blessings are disguised as troubles and vice-versa. There are generous biblical exemplifications of this fact. The fig tree that Jesus cursed in the Bible appeared fruitful from face value but was actually full of leaves and fruitless.

Evangelist Catherine - SCOANHence, according to Evangelist Catherine, the true Christian must be meticulous in his or her judgement by being thorough in analysing scenarios. When times are hard, our tears and complaints are not the solution. Instead, our ability to dig deep and discern the lessons inherent in such experiences is most important. Using the experience of Moses and the Israelites in Egypt, she encouraged Christians to dig deep for the voice of God in all circumstances rather than allow themselves to be distracted by the extraneous voices of their circumstances.

“Moses dug deep within him and heard the One who had sent him instructing him what to do. It is not difficult to act when you know God is speaking to you. Because Moses’ heart was deeply engaged with God, he was familiar with His voice, so when God spoke, Moses listened and obeyed what God told him to do. That voice on the inside was greater than the noise on the outside and following God’s instruction, the sea was parted in two and the Israelites with Moses safely walked through”.

Bemoaning the panicky and defeatist attitudes of most Christians in the face of trouble, Evangelist Catherine counselled the congregation to seek direction from the throne of grace rather than cling to the promptings of the human thinking and flesh. “When trouble comes, many run to the strong arm of institutions, medicine or flesh but according to God’s Word, we are to run to the throne of grace as a chosen people, a royal priesthood, God’s special possession called out of darkness into God’s glorious light to praise His holy name”.

According to Evangelist Catherine, every human being is shaped by the predominant thoughts he or she continually harbours. In other words, we are what we think. It is on this basis that she counselled Christians to think like champions and conquerors which they really are and look up to God in times of trouble believing strongly that He is able to see them through whatever life throws at them.

“I want you to think differently, talk differently, look differently, behave differently – knowing that Someone stronger, smarter, more powerful than you is for you, not against you, is fighting just for you and is more powerful than the combined forces of earth and hell. He wants to see you through whatever life brings. Whether the goings are good or tough and unpredictable, He wants to see you through – if only you give God a chance to prove it”.

TESTIMONIES
God’s Word will never return to Him void without accomplishing that which it is sent to accomplish and the songs of praise and thanksgiving will never depart from His house. The following testimonies proclaim the wonderful works God is doing at The SCOAN through His anointed servant Prophet T.B. Joshua. Just believe and you too shall a partaker of His glory!

During the Saturday Prayer Line service, Prophet T.B. Joshua introduced the eagerly awaited, ‘Morning Water’, ministering it to several people in the prayer line who came with severe afflictions. The results were extraordinary as with just a spray, sickness bowed the knee to the name of Jesus Christ and evil spirits behind infirmities were forced to get out. The following day, several of those who were ministered to with the Morning Water returned to share their triumphant testimonies!

MORNING WATER RESTORES INJURED BACK
MR KALU KALU Mr Kalu Kalu was in agony. Literally, each movement was accompanied by searing and shooting pain that made even a mere attempt to walk hellish. An accident in April 2014 left a fracture in his vertebrae compounded by a disc compression. His job in the civil service was threatened as he could no longer perform any of his duties due to the debilitating condition. A surgical operation was recommended by doctors but Mr. Kalu’s faith rested on God’s power.

Sitting down watching Emmanuel TV last week, he was amazed to discover The SCOAN Saturday Prayer Line service would hold the following week. By God’s grace, he made the difficult, painful journey to Lagos and was arranged at the Prayer Line. Prophet T.B. Joshua ministered the Morning Water upon Mr. Kalu’s hands, telling him to place them on any part of his body which was in pain. He rubbed the Morning Water upon his back and suddenly rose to his feet! “It was as if something came out of me and the pain just disappeared,” Mr. Kalu told the congregation. For the first time in eight long months, he was able to walk by himself. Returning home that night, he slept peacefully without pain for the very first time since his accident! Indeed, Mr. Kalu was able to genuinely greet his health ‘Good Morning!’

‘WITH MORNING WATER, MY PAIN DISAPPEARED’
Mr Victor AgbedoThe dawn had awoken. Mr. Victor Aghedo stirred from his sleep. He tried to get out of bed but his legs remained immobile. Attempting to sit up, a wave of pain hit him. It was agonizing. Unable to get up from the bed, Victor desperately beckoned on his wife. That was the beginning of two long months characterized by constant pain. He literally relied on his wife for everything – even to go to the toilet! Several medical tests could not ascertain exactly what had happened to Mr. Aghedo but the facts remained the same – he could not walk.

Painfully struggling to make his way to The SCOAN accompanied by his wife, Victor sat at the Prayer Line and pleaded with God for mercy as Prophet T.B. Joshua approached. Moved upon seeing his plight, Prophet T.B. Joshua gave the Morning Water to Mr Victor’s wife and told her to minister it to him. ‘But I am not a pastor,’ she internally questioned. She poured the Morning Water into her husband’s mouth twice. Suddenly, the man who had been practically bed-bound for the last two months jumped to his feet with the athleticism of a young man! “The pain just disappeared,” Mr. Aghedo joyfully testified to The SCOAN congregation. He advised them to believe nothing is impossible with God’s power, stating that he personally drove to the church the following morning and walked by himself into the auditorium to authenticate the mightiness of the miracle he received! Thank You, Jesus Christ!

MORNING WATER AWAKENS PARALYSED LIMBS
MISS MILLA VVONE (1)The numbing paralysis continued creeping slowly across her entire body. What began with heaviness and weakness in her lower limbs soon deteriorated into full-blown paralysis for Miss Milla Yvonne, a young Cameroonian. Her educational aspirations were blighted by the onset of the ailment which doctors concluded was due to spinal degeneration. As her condition worsened, Milla’s faith strengthened as she courageously decided to make Emmanuel TV a constant companion and believe God for healing.

When it was announced that The SCOAN Saturday Service had returned, Milla, joined by her brother and mother, decided to make the difficult journey from Cameroon. Braving all the odds against them, including language barrier, they made it to The SCOAN for the Prayer Line service. Milla was seated in a vehicle when Prophet T.B. Joshua approached. He called for Milla’s brother to come forward and ministered the Morning Water on his hands before telling him to minister it to his sick sister. As he followed the instruction in righteousness and Milla received the Morning Water, her limbs which had been numb and lifeless suddenly began to shake! The resurrection power of God pulsated through her entire body and suddenly, Milla rose up and began to walk! Her mother and brother fell to the floor in an emotional display of appreciation to God as Milla began walking and even started to run!

“I SLEPT PEACEFULLY FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 8 YEARS…”
MR PRELATI LUCIANO (1)For eight years, Mr. Prelati Luciano had an unusual nocturnal companion – a machine. After being diagnosed with a rare form of sleep apnea which was extremely dangerous, doctors prescribed a breathing machine, informing the Italian that he would have to use this machine every night for the rest of his life. Despite the use of the machine, Mr. Luciano would awake with irritability and restlessness. His breathing was both heavy and painful due to the condition.

Despite his skepticism, he accompanied his Nigerian wife to The SCOAN in Lagos to attend the Prayer Line together. By God’s grace, the very week they arrived in Nigeria was the time God spoke to Prophet T.B. Joshua to release the Morning Water. As he ministered the Morning Water to Mr. Luciano, he began to stagger, clearly under the influence of God’s power. Immediately afterwards, he testified that he could breathe freely without any hindrance. However, the full extent of the miracle was only to be revealed later that night. Taking a bold step of faith, Mr. Luciano decided to sleep without using the breathing machine. To the glory of God, he slept peacefully and awoke the following morning without the usual tiredness and tetchiness. “The Morning Water is very powerful,” were the Italian’s final words to viewers!

WOMAN WITHOUT FALLOPIAN TUBES DELIVERS MIRACLE CHILD
MRS ONUCHE MARIAM (1)Mrs. Mariam Onwuche was facing a dilemma which seemed impossible to overcome when viewed with natural eyes. She and her husband were desperate for children but after two ectopic pregnancies ending in operations, both of her fallopian tubes had been surgically removed. Depressed and distraught, the medical authorities reluctantly informed the couple that it was impossible for them to ever have children.

However, a ray of hope shone upon their hearts as they discovered Emmanuel TV. Listening to Prophet T.B. Joshua and seeing the works of God rekindled their faith that with God all things are still possible. They watched the 2013/2014 Candlelight service with the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua and joined him in prayer as they entered the New Year. Then, the miracle happened. That night after the prayer, Mrs. Onwuche had a dream in which Prophet T.B. Joshua came to her and told her not to worry as she would soon have her child and come to give her testimony. After meeting with her husband, a short time later, she became pregnant and true to the vision she had had, she came to The SCOAN to testify of the pregnancy.

Tears of joy etched the lines of her cheeks as she proudly stood with her husband and family to testify with their beautiful baby girl, Miracle Onwuche. She encouraged all others who had desire in their hearts to experience God’s power that distance is not a barrier. All they should do is believe, touch the screen by faith and get ready to come and share their own testimony of transformation.

KING ACKNOWLEDGES THE KING OF KINGS
HRH IGWE GODWIN NWAOBU1A king? Godwin Nwaobu thought his community was playing a joke! The South-African based businessman had just returned to Enugu State when the unusual proposal of kingship was laid before him. Knowing the entanglements attached to such a position, Godwin decided not to respond immediately to the request, telling his kinsmen that he needed a year to ‘hear from God’ before taking a decision. ‘God? Where will you hear from God?’ many irreverently scoffed. Several months down the line with the deadline of his decision nearing, Godwin had yet to make up his mind. Confused and perplexed, he decided to visit a place where he knew God’s voice was clearly being spoken – The SCOAN.

Sitting down during the Monday Prophetic service, Mr. Nwaobu made an unusual vow. ‘If Prophet T.B. Joshua does not speak to me today, I will forget about this title.’ A short time later, as Prophet T.B. Joshua was prophesying in the midst of the congregation, he walked up to him. “I am seeing beads on your hand,” Prophet T.B. Joshua revealed. There were no visible beads to be seen and the two had never met themselves previously nor had Godwin revealed his dilemma to anyone. God had spoken. Confirmation from Heaven had been unveiled. Today, HRH Igwe Godwin Nwaobu of the Ugwuleshi Community in Enugu, Nigeria stood to testify that no word from God is void of fulfillment!

WE MAKE A LIFE BY WHAT WE GIVE


The Sunday Service of January 18, 2015 at The SCOAN was remarkable in many ways. The atmosphere was divinely electric and as usual the congregation was lively and animated by the pervading expectation of receiving something from Heaven. The uplifting renditions of the choir prepared the minds of worshippers for the deep exhortation that was to follow.
DADDYThe man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua, delivered a double-pronged encouragement. One had material but very significant undertones while the other was a scriptural injunction that will always benefit those who walk in the ways of God. Advising people about WATER THERAPY, the man of God highlighted the quintessential nature of water to the life of man. According to the man of God, water is the only drink that has no disadvantages. “There is nothing you drink apart from water that does not have disadvantages. Everything has advantages and disadvantages. There is no man’s natural gift – there is none that does not have disadvantage. It is only God that gives without disadvantage”. This noble quality of water emanated from its therapeutic nature and capacity to act as a cleanser. Water helps flush the system of unwanted waste and equally helps in the regulation of body temperature. Water plays many vital roles in safeguarding the human health and therefore becomes one of the most infallible gifts from God to mankind.

Speaking about GIVING, the man of God delved into the indestructible spiritual essence of giving. However, the man of God explained that in giving, the giver must do so with a pure heart. He/she must give from the heart. It is only on that basis that what is being given becomes useful and capable of attracting blessings from God: “If you give something from your heart, it will bless you that gave it and it will also bless the person you are giving to. If you give something that is not from your heart, you that gave it have nothing to gain and the person you gave it to will receive a curse. If you give something from your heart, you will receive a double portion of what you give. If you give your own time, strength from your heart, double portion of it you will receive. When you get back home and there are possessions that you are not using, sell those things and share them to the poor, see how the Lord will bless you. Sell those possessions and set up a charity and the finger of God will begin to fight for you”.

Concluding, the man of God frowned against money-mongering in its totality, stating that anyone who is looking for money should seek direction from God: “When you are looking for money, you should also look for direction, what sort of money am I looking for?”

On her own part, Evangelist Kemi, whose message preceded that of the man of God, EVANGELIST KEMIspoke on the topic BE A PROBLEM SOLVER. According to her, bearing in mind our roles as witnesses to the world, all Christians should make it a top priority to affect lives positively, especially now that we live in a troubled world where the magnitude of problems has since attained alarming ramifications: “Be a problem solver. We are witnessing to a troubled world. Life is full of challenges. Life is a struggle. Our Lord Jesus Christ wants us to be compassionate; I mean problem solvers. In the world that cares less, we should care more”.

Speaking on the essential nature of Christian life, Evangelist Kemi posited that love is the hallmark of our relationship with others, hence, the Christian must extend love to others just as God gave His only begotten Son to us for the redemption of our sins: “Our position in Christ Jesus is enhanced each time we help someone in trouble. We are called to build our lives around our contribution to one another, ultimately, we are called to respond to all human needs, for that is what love entails. How many lives have you improved? There is no love that does not express itself by giving”.

Echoing the lyrical undertones of the popular Emmanuel TV song YOU ARE A SOLUTION written by Prophet T.B. Joshua and performed by Emmanuel Singers, Evangelist Kemi admonished Christians to remain united in love and realise that we live our lives for one another, carrying one another’s burdens: “I am a solution to your problem, just as you are to mine, in other words, I am because you are and you are because I am. There are many people on the sickbed in the hospitals around you, go there, visit them and show them your love and compassion. Who knows – that may be that is all needed for their recovery. Pray with them and pray for them, by doing this, you are not only helping to solve someone else’s problem, you may discover who you are thereby.”

In a final coda, Evangelist Kemi made a clarion call on Christians to remain focused in the bid to make positive impact on the world around them: “Adopting a lifestyle that is on purpose provides an opportunity to enrich others by leaving your imprint in a positive way”.

During Mass Prayer, the man of God prayed along with the congregation as he led them to command the light of God into their lives. He commanded all immoral spirits out in Jesus’ name. He also enjoined viewers all over the world to act in faith by praying along with him for their salvation through Christ Jesus: “Let there be light in my health, eyes, ears, throat, tongue, nose, mouth, in Jesus’ name! Every spirit of addiction, immorality, fornication, lust, begin to command them out, in the name of Jesus Christ! Every spirit from your past that is hindering your present and your future, command them out, in Jesus Christ’s name! Viewers, whatever medium you are using to view us, right now, be connected in the name of Jesus.”

FAMILY CURSE OF SICKLE CELL ANAEMIA BROKEN!
MRS ABELA BARONGA KAMARA [SICKLE CELL ANAEMIAMrs. Abela Baronga Kamara from Tanzania was diagnosed with sickle cell anaemia at 20 years of age. She had four children and all of them had the problem of sickle cell anaemia. Due to this problem, she spent all of her time in the hospital because it was either she fell sick or one of her children would fell sick.

Her son, Ericson was constantly visiting hospitals instead of attending school and as a result, he was coming last in his class. After ministering the Anointing Water in Jesus’ name, he was healed of sickle cell anaemia and went from last place to first in his class. They went to the hospital and conducted a test and to their surprise he was negative to sickle cell anaemia. Equally Mrs. Abela also had a test done after ministering the Anointing Water and she was declared free of sickle cell anaemia. They had used a lot of injections and medications every day and spent a lot of money but all that is now a thing of the past. Medical reports were shown as evidence of their healing. Ericson and his mother are now happy that they are healed and gave thanks to Jesus Christ with a song during The SCOAN live Sunday service.
They advised Christians to be problem solvers. “The more you share, the more God will bless you”.

BELGIUM POLITICIAN LIBERATED AND RESTORED TO GLORY
Mr. Christopher Oliha, a Nigerian living in Belgium is a politician in Belgium. HeMR CHRISTOPHER OLIHA DELIEVERD FROM SMOKING MARIJUANAwas elected in 2006 as a Councillor. He has contested for Senate and Parliament and other public offices in Belgium. He is well known in Belgian politics. Suddenly, everything started collapsing. He lost his job as a Councillor; his mum died and he suffered an addiction of smoking marijuana for 36 years. He thought he needed to smoke it to speak in public and give lectures. In addition to this, the addiction to smoking marijuana made him very aggressive and affected his relationship with people. He would drive long hours travelling to neighbouring countries just to get marijuana to smoke. His friends nicknamed him ‘marijuana’. He would buy it in cartons and store them in his house.

He came to The SCOAN and received the Anointing Water and ministered it on himself in Jesus’ name and received his deliverance. When he went to his country, his friend who was also addicted visited him and asked if he could bring some marijuana for him and to his surprise, he realized that he had not smoked it for many weeks and there was no craving for it. After the Anointing Water delivered him from the addiction to smoking marijuana, things began to go well in his life. 25 years ago, he had tried to stop, but he fell ill for 2 weeks and went back to the addiction and it became worse. A few weeks later, the chairman of his party called and said the person in the position of Councillor had resigned and the other two candidates who were supposed to fill the post declined and he was automatically re-elected as a Councillor. He advised Christians to seek God’s help because He is reachable anywhere, adding that, “God that did it for me will do it in your lives in Jesus’ name.”

HEALED AND REVIVED TO VICTORY
Setback and hardship were the order of the day for Mr. Richard Robert from Tanzania. He had a sad story to tell anytime people asked him of his wellbeing. Firstly, his chemical business was almost on the rocks with no profit in sight. And as if that was not enough, he became afflicted with a debilitating sickness – lumbar spondylosis. Excruciating pain limited him to his bed for two years. He could not even stand up, let alone carry out his business activities efficiently. His two children were crying every day for their father. It was not only seeing him in pain that made them cry; their academic prospects also looked bleak as he was not in a position to provide for them. They wanted to go to university and pursue their education overseas. All this became a distant dream and faint hope.MR RICHARD ROBERT [A

When the road became roughest and he had almost run out of rope, he grabbed onto faith and made a trip to The SCOAN. Privileged to receive the Anointing Water and Sticker, he claimed by faith that he would be healed and be able to get two cars! On getting back to Tanzania, it was as if he was a different person living a different life entirely. His business began to boom and within a short period, he was not only able to purchase two cars but four! The pain in his back vanished and he was able to do everything with strength and vigour. Now, he has purchased three plots of land and is building a family house. His son is studying Petroleum Engineering in Canada and his daughter is doing a degree in World Trade in China. The victory in Christ Jesus he has received is victory indeed. The rest is history!

HEALED OF SPIRITUAL FOOD POISONING, LIVER AND KIDNEY DAMAGE
PRINCE AYODELE OJO DELIEVERED FROM EVIL ATTACKSPrince Ayodele Ojo Arimoro suffered from serious evil attacks for two years in which he would eat continuously in his dreams. It got to the extent that if he tried to resist, it was as if someone would force the food into his mouth. The problem worsened as time went on. During the day, he would doze off in his office and be fed in his dreams. Physically, the problem affected his health. He began experiencing severe pain in his body and his system systematically broke down. When he went to the toilet, he would defecate pure blood and even the doctors were worried because his blood count was reducing. Overwhelmed with pain and agony, he complained to people around him and was advised to visit native doctors and herbal homes.

He started moving from one herbalist to another and in no time, he had sampled almost all the herbalists in the country but his problem persisted; none could provide a solution to his problem. A ‘Good Samaritan’ then told him about Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV. He decided to give it a try and installed Emmanuel TV. He began watching Emmanuel TV and one day, he had a dream where Prophet T.B. Joshua came to him and laid hands on his head and he vomited three fresh leaves. Prophet T.B. Joshua then said, “It is over”. When he woke up from the dream, he was convinced that his healing laid in Jesus Christ, so he came to The SCOAN.

He came to The SCOAN with the problem of severe liver and kidney damage. When Prophet T.B. Joshua laid hands on him, he lost consciousness for a moment. The next second, he realized that his body felt lighter and he immediately went to the toilet. He passed out faeces with clots of blood and he knew within him that the sickness was over. Before the prayer, he could not stand or walk by himself because he was so PRINCE AYODELE OJO DELIEVERED FROM EVIL ATTACKS1.JPGweak. People had to assist him with everything, even with going to the toilet and bathing. But now, his strength has been totally restored and his health has been captured for the glory of God. The nightly food has become a thing of the past and his dreams are now of breakthrough, success and victory.

Advising Christians, he observed “Your solution lies in Christ only. I spent huge amounts of money in herbal and ritual homes without solution but freely, I received my complete healing and deliverance at The SCOAN”.

RIDING THE WAVE OF PROMOTION IN A BRAND NEW CAR
“My joy knows no bounds” – this was the beaming confession of Inspector Osamede Egtharevba of the Lagos State Police Command as she proudly stood at The SCOAN INSPECTOR OSAMEDE EGTHAREVBA2 [Aauditorium to share her testimony. This had not always been the case though. Instead of joy, sadness and bitterness had plagued her days. The last five years seemed like a lifetime as each day she met frustration and setback in her career. She watched many who had joined the force after her and had less experience climb the ladder of promotion without any effort while she painstakingly remained on step one. Her husband was equally saddened at the stagnant state of his wife’s career. He discovered Emmanuel TV and introduced her to it in hope and faith for a new dawn in their lives. Although, unsure at first, Mrs. Egtharevba followed in her husband’s footsteps and one day, they came to The SCOAN.

As she received the Anointing Water, she felt a weight lifted from her shoulders.INSPECTOR OSAMEDE EGTHAREVBA1 [AWith faith rising, she ministered it on herself and believed in the faithfulness and trustworthiness of God. By faith, she put the new rank on her uniform believing her promotion was around the corner. True to her faith, she was called to the police station and received a promotion which was backdated. She is now an Inspector of Police! As she was considering the challenges of acquiring a new car to compliment the position, out of the blue, a friend invited her to a car dealer and told her to choose any car she liked as she would buy it for her! She chose a small car but the friend immediately replaced it with a big expensive car stating that she deserved the best. Unable to contain her tears of joy, Inspector Osamede proudly showed off her promotion photos and her brand new car!

I COULD WALK FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SIX MONTHS!
JESSE GANUN BASKETBALLER HEALED FROM DIFFICULTY IN WALKING USING CRUTCHES1A boisterous basketball career nipped in the bud by a burdening injury. At the tender age of 17, Jesse faced an enormous setback in his sporting pursuits after a stress fracture in his left tibia left hopes practically in tatters. Specialist doctors in America frowned upon inspection, informing the young Sudanese-American that a surgical operation was required and further cautioning him that a full recovery was not guaranteed. Jesse Ganun could not place any weight whatsoever on his left leg and was forced to move around with a pair of crutches. For six months, his bed became both a daily and nocturnal companion.

As an avid Emmanuel TV viewer, he resolved with his mum to make the long journey from America to Nigeria to visit The SCOAN for prayer. Arriving on Sunday morning, Jesse was among the thousands of congregants who were privileged to receive the Anointing Water alongside the recently introduced ‘Good Morning’ Anointing Sticker. That night, in their hotel room, Jesse ministered the Anointing Water to his affected leg. In that miraculous instant, the pain disappeared! Deciding to sleep and test his leg the following day, Jesse placed the ‘Good Morning’ Anointing Sticker on his leg. JESSE GANUN BASKETBALLER HEALED FROM DIFFICULTY IN WALKING USING CRUTCHESAwakening the next day, he rose to his feet. Astoundingly, Jesse could walk! Gingerly stepping forward and placing weight on his left leg, he walked freely for the first time in six months! “Just believe,” Jesse passionately advised the congregation. “Just believe – that is your connection.”

YOUR TESTIMONY IS HERE! KEEP READING US AND WATCHING EMMANUEL TV FOR YOUR MIRACLE. DISTANCE IS NOT A BARRIER!

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.

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

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.

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!

WITCHCRAFT ACCUSATION & DEAD BODY ABANDONED


Share on Facebook

The SCOAN and viewers of Emmanuel TV witnessed in the live service the case of a family from Akwa-Ibom who came to The SCOAN with the problem of witchcraft accusation. Due to this allegation, the family had been rejected in the community to the extent that the body of their late mother had been abandoned in the family house for 6 months.
However, contrary to the allegation, the Man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua found them innocent of witchcraft.

What will the Emmanuel TV Team do with the body which has been abandoned for the past 6 months?
And how will Prophet T.B. Joshua reconcile the family with the community after this serious allegation of many years?

Watch out this Sunday, 13th September 2009, for the concluding part of this case as Prophet T.B. Joshua sends the Emmanuel TV team to their community for reconciliation and peace and see that Jesus Christ is The Repairer and Restorer. Don’t miss it!

MAN’S JUDGEMENT – WEEK 7 DEVOTION


Man’s judgement is a judgement that is based only on what is seen, heard and on what the circumstances look like. This kind of judgement is limited and cannot understand God. When you base your judgement only on what is seen, heard and on what the circumstances look like, you have not looked deep enough to the heart. As a child of God, look deep enough to the heart by focusing on what God says about the situation at hand.

Instead of listening to what Jesus’ message was all about, the people from His hometown were calling Him a carpenter’s son. Jesus struggled His way out of a pit of questions. Those questions were; How did this man get such learning without having studied? ‘Are you not the son of Joseph?’ That is, ‘Are you not the same boy that we grew up together with?’

People of God! you can grow up with a boy who was a hooligan and you have been living upright; you may later see the boy become a man of honour and authority, by the grace of God. This is the mystery of grace: God takes unlikely people puts them into His palace for eternity. That is, Christ shows them that dominion was generally abused in this world. Can you see that broken things become useful in God’s hands?

You who complain of your miserable background, cheer up for there is hope for you. Jesus Christ, the son of the living God is our eternal Hope. In the midst of your misery, look unto Jesus, for your misery is the object of His mercy. By His grace and mercy you will cry no more, you will be oppressed no more, you will be disappointed no more, you will be sick no more and you will be poor no more. What amazing blessings these really are!…..Prophet TB Joshua.

PROFESSING AFFINITY TO CHRIST – WEEK 6 DEVOTION


A Christian is one whose life comes from Christ. Many today, accept the name of Jesus Christ but not the life of Jesus Christ. When I say, ‘The life of Jesus Christ’, I mean God’s kind of lifestyle which is a lifestyle based on positive faith: that is, positive thinking, positive talking and positive acting. However, we profess affinity to Christ according to the flesh, while we are unchanged in the heart and life. Many become Christians, born-again with self-effort. Self-effort is a wrong attitude toward sin and it leaves us with urge; urge to do the wrong things. It is pertinent to note that without the Holy Spirit destroying the root of sin in us, we are bound to be tormented by our desire to return to our bad habits. Psalms 66:18 says, “If I regard sin – iniquity, in my heart, the Lord will not hear me.” We are made in our heart to be like Jesus. True Christianity lies in the heart – in the purity of the heart. On the last day, we will be judged not by the colour of our skin but by the content of our character. James 1:22 reads, “But be doers of the Word and not hearers only, deceiving yourself.’’ Many people say, ‘I’m born again, I gave my life to Christ 25 years ago…’ This means you are a divine image bearer of God; you mirror Jesus. The challenge many Christians, believers, pastors and the rest are facing, is the problem of urge behind closed doors – urge to do many bad habits. Many Christians, Bible students, church people are studying the Word but have failed to act on or do the Word. The mind is renewed by studying the Word and acting upon it. One may study the Word for years; if he or she is not a doer, the mind cannot be renewed. Meditation in the Word is a visit to Him. When you meditate on God’s Word, you bring God’s power onto the scene.

EXPERIENCE GOD – WEEK 5 DEVETION


Jesus Christ is reachable; you are not far from God.
No state of being is as rewarding as living in tune with God! Everyone has a desire to experience God because He has set eternity in the hearts of men. Apostle Paul says in Philippians 3:7-11:
“But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith. I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.”
When you have a relationship with Jesus Christ you change and become a man/ woman who is directed by your heavenly Father and not by the influence from men or circumstances. If you want to experience God and be all God has called you to be, you have got to spend your time with Him and learn from Him at His feet.

LET GOD’S WILL BE DONE – WEEK 3 DEVOTION


It is the will of God to answer prayer and God accepts the prayer of faith but does not always answer it to the letter. So, as you are praying for a solution to your problem, remember that asking God for a specific thing will amount to limiting God to a specific answer. Do not let your situation dictate the direction of your prayer. Pray as Jesus prayed in Luke 22:41-43, ‘Father, not My will but Your will be done’.“Jesus went out as usual to the Mount of Olives, and his disciples followed him. On reaching the place, he said to them, ‘Pray that you will not fall into temptation.’ He withdrew about a stone’s throw beyond them, knelt down and prayed, ‘Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.’ An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him” (Luke 22:39-43).

Jesus Christ purchased our deliverance, healing and blessing at the price of great suffering. Look to the Cross by faith – faith in the finished works of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. In mercy, He call us and healed us. In mercy, He called us and delivered us. In mercy, He called us and blessed us. And most important of all, in mercy, He called us and saved us. In mercy, you are not excluded. Don’t limit God but let His will be done in your life. He knows the best and will always work out the best.

YOUR FOCUS – WEEK 1 DEVOTION


We are celebrating today because focus was not broken. In other words, we are here because Jesus kept His eyes on His goal. He kept His purpose in the forefront of His mind. Even as a young child, Jesus knew who He was and what He was all about.
Luke 2:49, “ ‘Why were you searching for me?’ He asked. ‘Didn’t you know I had to be in My Father’s house?’ ”
His God-given purpose was what He was born for, lived for and died for. That is why Jesus was able to say as He hung on the Cross, ‘It is finished’.
Are you focusing on your goal? If you decide on your direction, God will give you the energy for the distance but you have to be focused on your goal. Your focus is your personal decision.
Why do many people start off so well but soon derail? Broken focus is the main reason men fail. Make sure to include God in decision making if you don’t want to end up in failure by following the instruction given to Joshua, “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful” (Joshua 1:8).

BY CHRIST’S ORDER – DEVOTION


When we are tired and sick of our worldly business and frustrated in our worldly affairs, we are welcome to Christ. Jesus Christ is a democrat; He does not impose Himself or His will on anyone. He allows us to exhaust whatever worldly advantages we feel we have so that when we have learnt our lessons, we would value Him. The case of Peter is a good example. That he had laboured and toiled without anything to show for his many years of self-determination, self-confidence, human diligence and professional experience was evident in the way he sat frustrated at the seaside after the fruitless night of fishing. From Peter’s complaints, we could feel the level of bitterness and pain in his heart, even as he confesses his helpless and hopeless state, saying, “Master, we have toiled all the night and caught nothing; nevertheless at Your word I will let down the net” (Luke 5:5).

BY CHRIST’S ORDER

Here, Peter had demonstrated that, in spite of all the odds, there was still need to maintain self-control and submit to the One whose will was superior. He simply said, ‘…if You say so, I will let down the net’. In other words, he was saying to Jesus, “Who am I that I should disobey Your instruction? I know that if I assume the character of a fisherman under any authority that does not proceed from You, I am bound to catch nothing. But if I labour by Your order and under Your direction, I am sure I cannot labour in vain. So, I will let down the net”. It was not by mere chance that Jesus chose Peter’s boat at the seaside; it was by providential arrangement. When God is executing His plans in our lives, He also designs and arranges events which continue to unfold until His purpose is revealed. Remember, our only duty is to obey God’s commands; His duty is to keep His promises, and these two duties never conflict. Obeying God at first seems hard, until we come to see that all He asks is for our good and makes life full and free. The way of obedience is the way of blessing.

CONFESSIONS FROM THE MARINE WORLD…


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

Mrs Florence Ucheanya was brought up accustomed to supernatural experiences. At a tender age, a ‘mermaid’ appeared to her physically, stating that it was her mother. When Florence questioned her biological mother, she said that when she was about to give birth to her, some strange beings came to her in the dream to attest that the baby in her womb belonged to them. Growing up, Florence began to receive instructions from these demonic forces who would appear to her physically on a regular basis, especially when close to a river. Upon reaching university, she decided to become a Christian and began preaching to young children. However, the deep spiritual entanglements were still very much intact and her involvement in the dark marine world seemed only to intensify. She would nightly attend spiritual meetings in the ‘red sea’ where devilish assignments were dished out, all for the purpose of destruction. After refusing to carry out their intentions, her disobedience backfired in the form of terrible afflictions. Eventually getting married, despite severe warnings from the dark entities that possessed her, a spiritualist she went to said the only solution was to be buried alive in a grave. Desperate and pushed to her limits, she acceded and was taken to a graveyard. As the sand was slowly heaped upon her body, Mrs Ucheanya found herself spiritually transported into the ocean in the midst of demons. They said she would return to earth on the condition that love was not a word permitted in her dictionary, she would never have a child and would leave the earth aged 30.

Florence said that her marriage had been characterized by extreme turmoil and distress. Peace was both elusive and evasive. A giant man would      sleep with her on a nightly basis, causing constant fights between her and her husband, to the extent that she even kicked her husband in his male organ so that they would not be able to meet as husband and wife. The nightmare continued as a voice began instructing her to masturbate and then to steal. Anytime she went to public places, a nauseating urge would overpower her to take items, only regaining her senses after concluding the dastardly act. It came to the stage where suicide seemed the best option as life appeared more hellish to her than hell itself.

It was at the lowest ebb of her existence that hope came in an extraordinary form. Her spiritual husband appeared to her physically to say that death was nigh as he was assigned to kill her that night. At this moment, her husband brought forth the Anointing Water he had received at The SCOAN and ministered it in the atmosphere, knowing that an intense spiritual combat was ensuing. Suddenly, Mrs Ucheanya saw Prophet T.B. Joshua appear in the room, stretching forth his hand towards her violent spiritual husband who was attempting to annihilate her. At that moment, she saw fire descend and consume the demonic being! At that moment, the family decided they must visit The SCOAN for total deliverance. The kingdom of darkness however had a sinister plan. The marine forces visited her to say that she was being sent to The SCOAN to fight and destroy Prophet T.B. Joshua.

At The SCOAN Prayer Line, a mighty spiritual battle was being waged. As Prophet T.B. Joshua approached her, anger welled within Florence and she attempted to attack. However, her effort to move towards the prophet was thwarted by a blinding light that erupted from where he was standing. At this point, Florence saw Heavenly angels surround The SCOAN environment, alongside a tall man in brilliant light whose name was written on his chest, ‘Son of David – Jesus Christ’. Light conquered darkness and Florence saw the demons that had manipulated and messed up her entire life leaving her body! Ever since her deliverance, Mrs Ucheanya said that she can say for the first time that she loves her husband. She no longer hears voices instructing her toward devilish vices nor is her sleep interrupted by hellish encounters. When she did see the marine forces appear to her in the dream to threaten that they would deal with her for exposing them, she subsequently saw Prophet T.B. Joshua appear to tell them to leave as she now was a daughter of Christ!

Mr Ucheanya, a professional football referee and lecturer, testified that his wife is a completely changed person after her deliverance. He exhorted people to know the value of the blessing God had given to this generation in the form of Prophet T.B. Joshua, stating that he knows the setbacks in his professional career are now a thing of the past since the forces behind his stagnancy have now been eradicated. He advised couples encountering marital challenges to not separate when such spiritual entanglements manifest but rather seek deliverance from Jesus Christ.

I AM WIRED TB JOSHUA WEEKLY DEVOTION


“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39).
Apostle Paul was able to make this bold declaration of faith because he was wired to God, the Creator of Heaven and earth in a unique way. When you are wired to God in a unique way, nothing can separate you from the love of God. Today, our trials can separate us from Jesus because we are not wired to Him. Today’s language is only heard with the ears but the language God uses in the Bible must be heard with our hearts. When you become wired to God, the Holy Spirit affects your words and you begin to speak the language God used in the Bible to create and save us, to heal and bless us, to judge and rule over us.
When you hear God’s Word in your heart, you begin to get God’s ideas, work with His projects, know His opinion about yourself and others and see life the way God sees it. Then, you will dream differently, think differently, have a sensitivity you never had before and enjoy the privilege of letting the Creator of Heaven and earth assist you in whatever you do. Accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour and get ready to be wired to God in a unique way. If you are wired to God in a unique way, there is no one and there shall never be anyone quite like you.

Man Exposes “SCOAN-TB JOSHUA’S BOMB”!


TB Joshua Church Nigeria | tbjfansuk.wordpress.com

Emmanuel! Here is another wonderful testimony from Cephas Ogana, an Emmanuel TV viewer who received a miraculous breakthrough in his life and career after using the Anointing Water. As Prophet T.B. Joshua says, “The evidence of Jesus Christ is lives changed.” We thank God Almighty for this wonderful breakthrough! Remember, it is not the water that blesses, but God Himself – since the anointing is done in Jesus’ name.

“Emmanuel! I would like to testify to the miraculous career/ financial breakthrough in my life through the Anointing Water and the prayers led by Prophet T.B. Joshua on Emmanuel TV.

“In October 2010, I lost my job as a Marine Navigator. Things were so bad that my wife lost hope and concluded that we were going to be thrown out of our apartment. We could barely feed. On my own part, I did everything humanly possible to get a job. I sent uncountable e-mails and made phone calls to all the shipping companies I could find on the internet. I even went in person to crewing agencies in the city where I live. Every direction I turned to ended in disappointment. I went as far as contacting a friend in Nigeria who got a letter for me from a serving Senator for a job at the Nigerian Maritime Administration And Safety Agency (NIMASA) – but all to no avail. It was a desperate and dire situation.

“Then last year in June 2011, I travelled to Nigeria for a job interview. I did not get the job, but thank God – I got a lot more than that! During my time in Nigeria, I visited The SCOAN and received the Anointing water, as well as prayer from Prophet T.B Joshua during Sundays Mass Prayer.

“Since my return from Nigeria with the Anointing Water, our lives have been radically transformed! I now have a job with one of the biggest shipping companies in the world! My wife got a double promotion at her work and we have now even outgrown our apartment!

“The Anointing water is a bomb! All this would not have been possible if not for the fervent prayers of Prophet T.B Joshua that broke all the chains of satan in my life. May God continue to increase The SCOAN and grant us the grace to understand His Prophet. Thank You, Jesus!”
