TB Joshua: I Lived a Rejected and Isolated Life


By Collins Edomaruse, Abiodun Ajala and Olawale Olaleye,
There could not be a better way to start than
to ask; who’s T.B Joshua?

Well, there’s nothing spectacular about Prophet T.B Joshua. He is just like every other human being. But if there is any difference, it is the grace of God; the righteousness of God. It is a product of the grace of God. So, I am a product of the grace of God.

So, how did your ministry start?

The Church started just like other ministries. And if
there is any difference, it is the way and manner God
executes his plans in our lives. And of course, you
know the way and manner God executes plans in our
lives differs. Sometimes, God can use foolish things.
Our God is awesome. So, in a nutshell, that is just it.

As a person, how was growing up like?

In summary, let me say, I have tasted what it takes
to be poor; humiliated, embarrassed and all what
not. And of course, I have tasted what it takes to be
honoured. So, I think it is that grace that gives me
the strength to face all conditions today. It is the

grace of God. I have tasted what it takes to be humiliated and poor and also what it takes to be honoured and have more than enough. And that is the grace to face all conditions.

Can one then say it is that tough background that gave you the grace to
truly believe and face God?

I think it is just the will of God because for anyone to march for God, you must first
march with Him. For me, I have marched with Him and this is the time I am marching
for him. To march with God is the time to sacrifice and to march for him, is the time of
grace and blessing.

When did you get the calling and what was the sign like?

It was about 23 years ago when it all happened For instance, many will say they
encountered God through a man of God to do this and all that, but in my case and I
know many must have had the same experience that I had, it was a personal
encounter. It was not that one man of God came to me to say this and that. It was a
personal encounter. And if you look at my birth, it is a story people like to read and
listen to. I was in a trance for three consecutive days, then I saw a hand that pointed a
Bible to my heart and the bible entered my heart and my former heart seemed to
have immersed with the Bible immediately. Then, the awareness came and I saw the
Apostles and Prophets of old with someone whose head I could not see because he
was tall to the heaven and suspended in the air. I believe it was our Lord Jesus Christ
sitting in their midst. I also saw myself in their midst. After a while, I saw a hand of the
same tall man, I could not behold his face which was glittering with an unimaginable
light; tall to the heavens and still suspended in the air. But other Apostles, I could see
their faces, particularly Apostles Peter and Paul, Prophets Moses, Elijah and others.
Their names were boldly written on their chests.

So, I heard a voice saying “I am your God. I am giving you a divine commission to go
and carry out the work of the heavenly father”. At the same time, the same hand of
the tall man gave me a small cross and a big Bible, bigger than the one that entered
my heart with a promise that as I keep pressing in his Time and Name, I would be
given a bigger cross but if I failed, the opposite would occur. I also heard a voice of the
same tall man but I could not see his head, saying “I am the Lord your God who was
and who is- Jesus Christ, giving orders to the Apostles and Prophets.” The same voice
said to me “I would show you the wonderful ways; I would reveal myself through you,
in teaching, preaching, miracles and signs and wonders for the salvation of souls.
Since then, I have been receiving in my vision every year and according to my
faithfulness to God, bigger cross that means to me, more responsibilities. The Bible
that entered my heart symbolise spirit and life (the Holy Spirit). God’s word is spirit
and life. He does nothing without his word. The book of Roman 8:16 says “God’s spirit
joins himself to our spirit to declare that we are children of God.”

If you were not doing God’s work, what would you have been doing?

The question you just asked me is purely divine because I don’t know. Listen, we are
created in God’s image and what matters to God is not our physical or mental
disposition, but one with Him in terms of love, kindness and so on. It is the goodness
of our cause that interests God and not our physical or mental disposition. Really, not
that our physical and mental dispositions do not have roles to play, just that the
goodness of our cause interests Him more than that. And since we are created for the
glory of God, no one can say what he or she would like to be. We are created for his
glory and we must live for his glory. Our lives are in God’s hands. We have no control.
We can’t control Him by using the Bible or cross as a good luck charm without a
thorough reformation of heart and life. So, I think that question is for Baba God.

Before that encounter with God some 23 years ago, who were you?

When we talk of encounter, there are different stages of encounter. The one we are
talking about is the deeper encounter. You know, there are deep, deeper, and deepest;
that is the three stages in the life of a Christian. So, every Christian must go through
the stages. It is about our responsibility to God; how we obey His rule. We have many
Bishops who are just deep in the Lord and we have many Christians, just ordinary
Christians without any title whatsoever either as a pastor or Bishop who are deeper in
the Lord. We have many pastors who are deep and their members are deeper. So, not
until you are in the line that you’ll begin to know this. But before I got the calling, I
was a member of the Anglican Church and participated actively in many Church
activities. On three different occasions, I was appointed the chairman of children’s
Harvest/thanksgiving ceremony. During my primary school days at St. Stephen
Anglican primary school, Agbaluku, Ondo State. I was the leader of Student Christian
Fellowship. I taught my colleagues the scriptures without formal Bible training. In my
dream, I was always taught the scriptures that gave me an edge over the other
student colleagues even above my teacher. I was the smallest in the class and I led
the prayer during school devotions. My teacher, Mrs. Margaret Tolani Adejumo and my
colleagues usually called me small pastor. So, it is God himself who performs the
divine anointing on all who have the wonderful privilege of becoming His children.

The essence of the question is to know if you have lived a kind of life that
negates outright, the life of a Christian before you were called to serve. So,
who were you before you became a man of God?

That’s a nice question. When you look at my life, you’ll see that there was no
opportunity to live a funny life. I don’t know my father. It was very, very difficult. In
fact, there was no opportunity to live a funny life because all through, it was rejection

and isolation and it really helped me. It was not by power of mine, so, we should not
make jest of those who lived funny lives because the book of Galatians 6, says, if one
is caught out of sin, you that caught him should take him gently; restore him gently so
that you also will not be tempted. For instance, you saw someone smoking and you
began to make jest of him; saying, ‘Ha, you are a smoker.’ Be careful because you
also may be tempted. For anyone to live right, it is not by his power or by his might, it
is the grace of God because without God, no one can live right. The Bible says ye
should be careful because the first may be the last and the last may be the first.

It’s Christmas. Let’s talk about its essence. What does Christmas connote?

Well, I would not want to say anything that will run contrary to the theology, but I’ll
put it in a way that a scholar of the scriptures will understand. Christmas is the period
of opportunity for everyone to show our true remorse for our unworthy past. I don’t
want to say anything that will elicit controversy but it is an opportunity to show true
remorse, and not an occasion to show off. Simply put, God has a son and he planted
him in the earth to produce a family. Today, millions are born again through this seed.
And if that is it, how then do we celebrate Christmas? How do we register our
appreciation to him? That’s the question. If God has a son and planted him in the
earth to produce a family, and today, millions are born again through this seed how do
we show appreciation? We show appreciation to him by giving every good thing
without asking of us: our love, our time, our strength, our faith, our loyalty and our
money. You see, there is what we call humility; total humility and submission to his
will. That’s our offering and when you want to give him, you should remember the
quality ones because for instance, in Nigeria today, we are good givers, but we do
give when it is convenient. That is Nigerians for you. But as true Christians, do not
give only when it is convenient for you. You should give even when it causes some
pains. Even when you are not happy, people can rush to you and say please help me, I
have not eaten today and you say leave, go, I am not happy, why should you ask me
for money? But even when it causes pains to do, please do because God has only one
son and he planted that son in the earth. You can imagine that. So, when you give
when it is not convenient, your offering will be a sacrificial giving. So, as we go out to
celebrate Christmas, we should remember the weak, the poor and the lonely in the
society. It is praise-worthy to give, not only to our power but also beyond our power. If
this is our aim and objective of giving, even if we gave out a little, that offering will be
acceptable to God. That’s Christmas for you. Some may say where is it written in the
bible, but the truth is that it is an occasion for us to truly remorse our unworthy past.
What this means is that a time of giving is a time to show true remorse, not the time
to show off.

But don’t you think your analysis of the significance of Christmas would
have been apt for Easter?

Sometimes, I wonder if we don’t read our Bible. Jesus Christ fasted for 40 days and 40
night and you have also been doing the same. But the same Jesus Christ walked on
the sea, why can’t you walk on the sea? But Jesus was led by the Spirit to do so. He
was not led because someone was doing it; he was not copying people. If you begin to
look through the bible, all the events that happened were not repeated. Look at it; he
walked on the sea, he turned water to wine. But who else repeated this? Also, in the
Bible, Peter said to the people at the beautiful gate, silver or gold I have not, in the
name of Jesus…but no other man of God has done that. This is because they received
from heavens. They came to change the world, but today, we are copying. And when
we keep copying, we cannot change our world. We’ll continue to live the same world.
We are sent to this world to make a difference, but we cannot make a difference

PARDONING MERCY – TB JOSHUA


2 Chronicles 7:14 – “If My people who are called by My Name will humble themselves with a broken heart and pray, I will forgive their sins and heal their land.” The term ‘land’ means everything that has to do with you.

God’s promise is not a blank cheque. HE clearly spells out the conditions on which HE makes it. HIS promise is ‘I will heal you/ bless you/ save you – if you humble yourselves in prayer and be broken hearted.’ This means, pardoning mercy makes way for healing mercy.

If you pray for healing without obtaining pardon first, your sickness will not yield to your prayer. That is, will not be answered. Therefore – if your situation is not yielding to your prayer – look inward. That is, examine yourself in the light of God’s Word – because our God is a faithful God. HE is a God who keeps HIS promises.

Therefore, don’t allow the situation you are in to dictate the direction of your prayer, simply ask for His mercy and forgiveness because pardoning mercy makes way for healing mercy.

ANOINTING WATER BRINGS PROSPERITY – TB JOSHUA


Through the Anointing Water, Engr Lazarus Yakubu,
an aeronautical engineer became a proud owner of a Boeing 727

The testimony regarding the Anointing Water for Blessing and Prosperity came from Engr Lazarus Yakubu, an aeronautical engineer who has been in the aviation industry for years without recording enviable material success. Among many failures, the agreement he formalized with a Ukrainian Helicopter Company in 2005 to be their sales representative in Nigeria flopped like the Company his friend and he registered to render engineering services to clients, a contraption which took them as far and high as the United Nations. In the face of these poverty-grooming failures, he decided to spiritually fortify his fortunes with the Anointing Water. Coming to The SCOAN on 10th October 2010, he took part in the service during which the prophet uttered the words, ‘Your past is over’, as part of the prayer. Jolted by that phrase and claiming it for himself, Engr Lazarus additionally bought related spiritual materials including  ‘The Mirror’, ‘The Step’, ‘Read us’ amidst other video recordings and travelled home in renewed faith, internally satisfied that he had partaken of spiritual bath and rejuvenation in the Synagogue. In actualization of his faith, his life began to witness  a progressive change and thereafter, he became a proud owner of a Boeing 727 – a cargo plane of the carriage capacity of 20 tonnes bought for $5,000,000. In confirmation of the new door of prosperity opened for him by the medium of the Anointing Water, he received a visitation from a Construction Company in America on the Monday week to formalize an agreement with him to take charge of the construction of an international airport. Indeed, Lazarus’s fortunes have changed and he seized the opportunity of the testimony to advise his listeners to turn to God in all vicissitudes of life and they would not be disappointed.

I encourage you to watch Emmanuel TV, especially the live services from The SCOAN on Sunday. God is really using this simple television station to bring deliverance and freedom to so many people around the world!

If you have a testimony to share, please send it to us for publication in this blog. It would be great to hear from you. Remember, your testimony will encourage many others to come and receive their own touch from Jesus Christ.

DO NOT BEAT THE GUN – TB JOSHUA


<div>
In line with his wish for the congregation to cultivate a lasting  relationship with our Lord, Jesus Christ, Wise Man Harry said the Bible  was the greatest book on earth. Your life, as he put it, depends on  knowing the Bible. However, many people today, he stated, are in the  wrong position. Many people who should be leaders today still find  themselves in the position of followers. He explained this is because  our minds are so occupied by worldly considerations that we forget that  there is time for everything. There is time to labour and time to reap  the products of grace.
However, in a situation where we enjoy before labour, we are simply  beating the gun. In an attempt to beat God’s appointed time, we destroy  the promise of God in our lives. Tactfully entitling his message: Do Not  Beat The Gun, the wise man turned to the Bible for a couple of  illustrative texts. Reading his proof text, taken from <strong><em>Psalms 37:7-9, 16-17</em></strong>,  the wise man reminded the congregation that in a race, anybody who  beats the gun will be called back. The same phenomenon, according to  him, applies to life. Beating the gun will pull someone back, if not  down. Many people who were once rich are now poor and others who were  once leaders are now followers because they beat the gun. In an attempt  to beat the gun, they destroy, kill, steal and do much other harm.
If you are what God says you are, no matter the situation you are in,  you would have no reason to compare yourself with others. Turning to <strong><em>Genesis 16</em></strong>  for illustration, he cited the error of impatience committed by Sarai,  Abram’s wife by introducing her husband to polygamy. In the words of the  wise man, the greatest mistake in life will happen because of  impatience. The error of Sarai is replicated in the lives of many people  today, the wise man maintained, because of impatience. This is why we  lose purpose and balance when the answer to our prayer does not seem  forthcoming. Delay, however is not denial, the wise man exhorted his  listeners. When our prayers seem unanswered, God may be saying, ‘My son,  be patient, for there is time for everything’. The road to our destiny  is not a bed of roses; patience, perseverance and endurance are the  tools to actualizing our destiny.

<strong>MONTH OF SORROW TURNS TO JOY</strong>
<div id=”attachment_3568″ style=”width: 250px;”>
<div>

</div>
</div>
After the message, Prophet T.B. Joshua drew the attention of the  congregation to the major events of the previous Sunday’s worship. A  clip was shown of the prophet as he addressed a woman during the time of  prophecy. ‘I call you because the month of April is a month of  grumbling for you. Why is it so?’ the prophet asked the woman. ‘I had  two miscarriages in April 2008 and 2009 which was the same month my car  was smashed’. Combining prayer with prophecy, the prophet said, ‘In the  mighty name of Jesus, I see you with a baby girl; you are free.’
After the video clip, a woman who introduced herself as Mrs Ekeh from  Akwa Ibom State, took the platform to confirm the prophecy. With her  baby girl, Mrs Ekeh explained to the congregation that she came to The  SCOAN in March last year to seek the face of the Lord as she was once  more on the eve of experiencing&nbsp; another miscarriage after losing two in  the previous years. It was in that plight that God visited her by way  of prophecy and revealed to her through the man of God that her past was  over and that she would bring forth a baby girl. Going back home in the  joy of the prophecy and wondering how the prophet could ascertain the  gender of her three month pregnancy, she watched as God unfolded the  revelation in her life.

</div>
<div style=”text-align: left;”>
In confirmation of the prophecy, Mrs Ekeh  told her listeners, she enjoyed a string of breakthroughs in her family,  apart from the delivery of the baby girl as prophesied. It was in  recognition of this that she named her baby girl Happiness.<strong></strong></div>
<strong>FACED BY A STIFF OPPOSITION</strong>
The next video clip revealed Wise Man Harry facing a stiff opposition  during the time of prayer and deliverance in last week’s Monday  prophetic service. The demon inside the young man attempted to threaten  Wise Man Harry and even removed his shoes as if in preparation for a  fight. ‘Who are you? How many powers do you have?’ Wise Man Harry asked  him without intermission. Insisting that the wise man should equally  declare his powers, he arrogantly told Wise Man Harry that he had many  ‘holy ghosts’ in his own way. ‘Are you sure you have the Holy Ghost?’  Wise Man Harry replied as he called on the mighty name of Jesus Christ.  Jerking and staggering in reaction to the wise man’s prayer, the young  man slumped to the ground and received his deliverance.

<div id=”attachment_3574″ style=”width: 132px;”>
<div>
Mr Pius</div>
</div>
Apologising to the wise man for his insolence, he disclosed that he  had the spirit of python from the desert which had disturbed his life  for years. Elaborating, as requested by the wise man for the edification  of listeners, he disclosed that spiritually he used to change into an  ant or some other animal to bite his victims by which action their lives  were destroyed. He added that the spirit had been disturbing his life  for 18 years. In his dreams at that time, he would see his prospective  helpers telling him of their inability to help him because of the many  snakes around him.
Emerging from the congregation to testify, the man whose name was  Pius heaved a sigh of relief thanking God for His mercy and said that  after the deliverance, he felt light, free and okay at the exit of that  negative spirit that had used him as an agent of havoc.
<strong>MR DICKSON: A STORY OF TRANSFORMATION</strong>
<div style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”>
<a href=”http://thetbjoshuafanclub.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/8.gif&#8221; style=”margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;”><img alt=”” height=”400″ src=”http://thetbjoshuafanclub.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/8.gif?w=200&amp;h=300&#8243; title=”Mr Dickson” width=”266″ /></a></div>
<div id=”attachment_3576″ style=”width: 210px;”>
<div>
Mr Dickson</div>
</div>
Next, Prophet T. B. Joshua told the congregation another wonderful  miracle recorded in The SCOAN sometime in the past. It is the story of  Mr Dickson, a man delivered from the spirit of madness who had come to  say, ‘Thank You’ to God and The SCOAN for his healing. The video clip  gave details of how the prophet asked a few of his evangelists to travel  to a faraway village in Edo, Nigeria to bring one Mr Dickson who had  been insane for 14 years for deliverance.&nbsp; Having taught them the word  to utter to disarm him of any dangerous weapon, the prophet wished the  evangelists a successful journey.
Getting to the village, the evangelists disclosed their mission to  some respectable individuals who willingly offered to assist them to  locate Dickson as soon as the prophet’s name was mentioned. Relieved  that healing was forthcoming for their kinsman, these men implored the  evangelists to ask the prophet to pray for them as well. Ransacking  every nook and cranny of the village for the whereabouts of Mr Dickson  without success, they all decided to drive into the outskirts of the  village where they suspected he could be found at that time of day.  After passing through all manner of terrain, they sighted Dickson from  afar with a bamboo cane on his head and dangerously armed with a  machete, as he trudged home. Beholding her father in his rags and  insanity as they approached him, one of the daughters gave way to  emotions and released tears freely, recounting what her father used to  be and what had become of him. A man who was gainfully employed and rose  to the rank of commercial manager after obtaining degrees in Economics  in far away Yugoslavia had become useless, afflicted with a mental  disorder. A man who, as well as having a house in the village, had his  personal car and was also chauffeur-driven in his official car.
Running to her husband, the wife attempted to disarm him of the  cutlass.&nbsp; Dickson suddenly became more aggressive until the evangelists  were able to disarm him, using the instruction given them by the  prophet. Accompanying him to where he kept his degrading clothes, he  willingly followed the team of evangelists back to Lagos. The  evangelists returned to The SCOAN cheerfully, their mission  accomplished.
In The SCOAN, Mr Dickson was prayed for by the man of God to deliver  him from the spirit of insanity after which he was treated to all the  care and attention befitting a normal human being which Mr Dickson lost  in the 14 years of insanity. Totally fit in mind and body to be  reintegrated in society after a long period of recuperation and exposure  to the Word of God, Mr Dickson was able to go home and live among his  people.
It was after three or four months of his sojourn that he decided to  come back to The SCOAN to say thank You to God and the entire church for  their love and care.&nbsp; Coming out into the open after the clip and brief  remarks by the prophet, Mr Dickson happily expressed his thanks, in  which he also advised his listeners to seek Jesus for any member of  their family who finds himself in the kind of situation he found  himself. While a person who has an ulcer can seek Christ by him/herself,  it is not the same case with the one who has a mental disorder. If the  mad person was self-conscious, he said, they would not go naked or eat  from the dustbin. Answering a few questions after his speech, he denied  being the one that had a mental disorder but it was a spirit being in  him. To another question, he replied that he had no other challenges  after God Almighty had delivered him from the spirit of mental disorder,  that the greatest challenge had been overcome. Asked what his  challenges at the moment were, he said whatever challenges he had as the  head of a family were challenges that he would leave in the hands of  God.

<div style=”text-align: left;”>
Elder Nwoye of Anambra, Nigeria but resident  in Nasarawa State, also shared his testimony. He has Emmanuel TV both  in his house and his office and prays with the Anointing Water every day  with his family. The door of his house displays the Anointing Sticker.  On the 9<sup>th</sup> of last month, according to him, he asked his wife  to go and switch off their generator before they would go to bed,  unknown to him that armed robbers had surrounded their premises.&nbsp; As the  wife noticed them, she shouted to attract attention. Elder Nwoye came  out immediately and before he knew it, he was in direct confrontation  with the armed robbers, six in number, who made an attempt to harm him  with their weapons.</div>
To God be the glory, he never sustained any injury from the attack.  On the contrary, he overcame the six robbers single-handed, in his  words, just like David over Goliath, and they fled in a state of  confusion.&nbsp; When the police visited the scene and saw all that  transpired, they demanded to know the weapons he used to ward off the  robbers. He told them that like the Biblical David, his weapon was trust  in God and prayer with the Anointing Water.&nbsp; To God be the glory! When  the Lord is involved in your matter, it doesn’t matter who else is  involved!
<strong>EMMANUEL – GOD IS WITH US!</strong>

Hon. Chike Imoh Ogiji of the Ebonyi House Of  Assembly, Ebonyi State and his wife, Josephine took turns to air their  testimony of the wonderful work of God in their lives.</div>

After the inauguration of the House on the 7<sup>th</sup>of  June, Hon. Ogiji left but only to meet a gang of six armed robbers in  his house. Pointing their guns menacingly at him, they warned him of the  danger of any resistance on his part.</div>
<div style=”clear: both; text-align: center;”>

Allowing his wife and another woman with him  to come out of the car, the robbers bound him and drove off with him.  As they drove away, he overheard one of the robbers on the phone saying  that Hon Ogiji was already in their custody. Putting two and two  together, Hon Ogiji remembered a threat text that he had received  earlier and concluded within himself that they were assassins.</div>
The only weapon of defence at his disposal was the Word of God. As a  member of The SCOAN, Hon Ogiji shouted, ‘Emmanuel! In the blood of Jesus  Christ! Let the God of T.B. Joshua rescue me!’ As he mentioned these  words, confusion set in among the robbers who began violently arguing  among themselves thus giving Hon Ogiji an opportunity to escape. As they  drove off in his car, he unbound himself and made his way to the police  station to report the matter. As he gave his testimony, Hon Ogiji  displayed a national newspaper where the incident was reported.&nbsp; We  thank the Lord for always coming to our rescue at the hour of need.

<strong>ANOINTING WATER MINISTERED WORLDWIDE</strong>
Another video clip was shown of the miraculous work of the Anointing  Water worldwide. The focus this time was New York, USA and Athens,  Greece.&nbsp; Before the arrival of the Anointing Water in New York, people  had assembled in full anticipation of the miracles of the day. They were  in one accord with Prophet T. B Joshua via Emmanuel TV in prayer to  God. As soon as the Anointing Water was ministered, the miracles that  followed were as they had anticipated. Men and women were shaking  uncontrollably in deliverance.&nbsp; A woman among them testified that before  the Anointing Water was sprayed on her, she could hardly touch her body  because of severe pain but all that was gone following the ministration  of the Anointing Water.&nbsp; We join them to thank the Lord for bringing  health and relief to many of them through the Anointing Water.
In Athens, Greece a man who had had breathing problems for ten years  and depended on a machine for breathing also received his healing from  the ministration of the Anointing Water. After receiving the Anointing  Water, the man was instantly healed. Visibly shocked, he explained that  he had spent a large amount of his money and time going to hospitals  without getting any relief.&nbsp; Surprised at his miraculous healing which  automatically restored his ability to breathe freely, he asked himself,  ‘Where was I all these years?’&nbsp; He demonstrated his healing by running  up and down some steps within the church, a feat he said was impossible  before the prayer. We join him to thank the Lord for manifesting His  wonders through the Anointing Water, in Jesus’ name.

Anointing Water Testimony – Miraculous Delivery Moments Before Operation


They met for the first time in a hospital ward, both there for a mutual purpose: childbirth. However, the night unfolded and there were no signs of labour for either woman. The medical personnel present attempted to induce the labour process through various means without any seeming sign of success. Morning dawned and Esther soon started experiencing the early signs and pains of labour. Her time of delivery had arrived. However, her colleague Ngozi saw no differences and fear soon set in. After examination, doctors concluded that an operation was the only way for her to deliver safely. But God had other plans!

Here is their wonderful faith-building story, in Esther’s own words, as God wrought a miraculous wonder in the hospital ward through the medium of the Anointing Water.
“Emmanuel, God is with us. My name is Mrs Onyekachi Esther Nwoye from Anambra State and I have a testimony to share concerning the Anointing Water.
“On the 17th May 2011, I went to the hospital along with the Anointing Water to give birth to my second child. On getting there that day, I met another lady Mrs Ngozi Mbah who also came for childbirth. One funny thing about both of us is that we did not see any sign of labour at all. We only came according to the doctor’s instruction that we should come for induction – that is, to induce the baby because the baby is due. 

The Anointing Water

“In the evening that very day, the doctor induced both of us with a tablet which he inserted into us. All through that night, we did not see any serious sign of labour though I personally had some changes in my body. So both of us were now neighbours and we started relating to each other. There were three other women who saw signs of labour with us and they all gave birth that night.
“In the morning, they checked our body and removed the tablet which was inserted into us and changed it with a hot drip to fasten the labour process. After some time, I went properly into labour whereas this other lady, Mrs Mbah, started weeping and crying uncontrollably. It got to the extent that the doctor’s attention was much on her and when he examined how far she had gone with labour, it was observed that it was just 1cm whereas I had gotten to 6cm, against 8-9cm for childbirth.
“After some time, the doctor concluded that her case was different and that she would be going through an operation (Caesarean Section). This made the lady to cry the more; she was so frightened. Seeing her pitiful condition, I could not hold back any more. Immediately, they removed the drip from her, cleaned her up and her husband signed for the operation. After they had finished cleaning her up, she came back to the labour ward and was still crying. At that time, I introduced the Anointing Water and The SCOAN to her and asked her if she believed that if I used it on her that she would deliver her baby safely. She accepted. Immediately, I ministered the Anointing Water three times in her mouth, also doing the same thing to myself. I left her with the words, “It is well” 
“After some time, she went out and urinated. According to her, she felt something had passed out from her body. Then it was the time for her operation. They took her to the theatre and while the doctor was dressing up, the nurses were with her, preparing her for the operation. They had shelved her, fixed the urine rubber on her and were about to inject her. They asked her to lie down but, according to her, she did not know what pushed her up and she sat down and began telling them that she wanted to excrete. They refused to allow her and were quarrelling with her right there in the theatre.
“All of a sudden, her baby began to come out! One of the nurses saw what happened and immediately asked her to lie down.  In a matter of minutes, the baby came out – while the doctor was still dressing up for the operation! It was not up to one hour that I also gave birth safely. When she came to the ward, she was crying and told me that the God of T. B.  Joshua has delivered her and we hugged each other with tears in our eyes, celebrating. I am sharing this testimony to the glory of God and to build other people’s faith. Emmanuel!”
