Eleven Children, One Wife, No Home Living Amidst Refuse And Rubbish For Over Three Years – TB Joshua


A stirring tale of glorious hope shining amidst the dark chasms of despair, of seperation and shame transfromed to unity and peace, of loneliness and homelessness replaced with life and love. Because God was involved…

Beyond the burdening, burgeoning bondage of homelessness, Mr Kefa Olatunji Taiwo had strayed slowly into the hazardous realms of hopelessness. At 60 years old, his family had scattered, any shred of dignity or self-worth left battered – his life in total tatters. Living in a bedraggled and dishevelled excuse for a shed, scantily assorted from stray aluminium and rotting wood, he had dwelt and dealt in the refuse grounds of Lagos, Nigeria for over three agonising years, surrounded by the repulsive stench of decay and debris, and the degrading stigma of a lunatic-like existence. Suicidal tendencies crept increasingly closer…

Living amidst the rubbish...

Living amidst the rubbish…

He suddenly halted before him, sensing something strange.“You are the one I am chasing.” Kefa looked up, astounded, dumbfounded. “Where is your family? Everybody is scattered in your home – and you are sleeping under the bridge, as an elderly man.” Extraodinary. His life-story unfurling uncannily from a man he had never encountered, a man he had never explained his predicament to. “You are getting old, an old man sleeping outside – and the family are scattered. Do you know where your problem comes from? This is what your mummy was telling you. The little money you had, you were going out – sometimes in the night you will not come home. You would take girlfriends. The little you had – you spent it just like that. This has destroyed you, destroyed your career.” How did he know? Whom had he told? “Something happened to you before this thing started. You met a mad woman – you never knew she’s a mad woman, and you slept with the woman. This is where the problem comes from. Today, when you sleep you see animals.” “Exactly, sir”

When Mr Taiwo walked dejectedly into The Synagogue, Church of All Nations in Lagos, Nigeria on Sunday 30th August, unbeknown to him was the unfolding of a divine design to break the chains of poverty and restore the bonds of unity within his crises-fraught family. The prophecy took him by surprise. It was so sudden, so direct, so precise. Pastor TB Joshua narrated his life to him, a brief 30 seconds of breath-taking revelation, a concise uncovering. As he was led through the beautiful sanctuary, a flame of hope licked within his veins. Could it be a way out had actually come?

Just imagine, just consider... what do you have to give?

Just imagine, just consider… what do you have to give?

The following week he stood again before the vast SCOAN auditorium, clips of his ‘home’ broadcast to the world live on Emmanuel TV. Evangelists had accompanied Taiwo to establish the veracity of the prophecy. The crowd gasped, beholding a dank wasteland with pigs scavenging among the filth, dirty infected water up to the knees, slime and grime at every turn. And a human being lived there, slept there, ate there, amidst the clutter and litter of decomposing garbage and gunk. “I’m useless,” the former furniture maker told the evangelists. “I just have to go and hide myself here when it is night. This is a shameful place, but I have no alternative – that’s why I have to stay here, living here as a mad man,” he said, explaining how local hoodlums had burnt his only property to ashes, forcing homelessness upon him.

Accompanied by his estranged wife and 11 children, all suffering a similar fate, Mr Taiwo watched on in reflective silence. “I believe if this man is helped, he will not go back to his past life – because he has tasted suffering and hardship,” said TB Joshua, addressing the whole congregation. “And I know if blessing comes now, he will be able to maintain it. Sometimes God uses foolish things. Don’t be surprised that among these children may be the president of tomorrow. Remember the past history, remember the heroes – many of them were raised from this kind of humble background,” he explained. “The first step is to get accommodation for the family, so we can bring the family together and let them live as one. To liberate these children, we must give them scholarships. And those who want to learn a skill – we will give them that opportunity.” The pastor, famed for his unrivalled and unbridled philanthropic works, explained that if the youths were left to themselves, they would probably end up in armed robbery or prostitution out of frustrations irrationalising influence. “Give them N300,000 and five bags of rice.”

Tears of shock and joy escaped from beneficiaries and congregants alike. Never before had Kefa seen or touched such money. “I didn’t expect this. Thank you, sir,” he quibbled, words failing to form his heart-felt expressions of gratitude. “This is what we are born for, this is what we are to live for, this is what we are to die for,” smiled the prophet, ascribing all glory to God.

“Someone out there is waiting for you for a lifetime,” Joshua counselled the enthralled audience and viewers worldwide. “You cannot afford to fail them; failing them is failing God. Remember, God is speaking to you through them, saying: ‘They are fatherless, so that you can be their father.’ ‘They are lonely, so that you can be their companion.’ ‘They are in want, so that you can be their benefactor.’ ”

This Is What Life Is All About!

TWINS RESCUED FROM ABANDONMENT TO FORMAL EDUCATION – TB JOSHUA


A woman, Felicia Alaba and her twin sons, Kenneth and Daniel

A woman, Felicia Alaba and her twin sons, Kenneth and Daniel came forward to unveil their plight, particularly of the eighteen-year-old twins, who had been denied not only parental care and love but even knowledge of their father, said to be a citizen of the UK. According to one of the twins, they were relocated from the UK to Nigeria at six months of age, since which time they had not set eyes on their father.

Their mother, who became too poor to care for them, entrusted them to a friend in Lagos with whom they lived for two years.  Unable to cope any further, the friend folded her arms and asked the twins to fend for themselves. Since January this year, according to them, they had been denied of a roof over their heads making them sleep outside and anywhere with one eye opened for their safety. They made their living by dancing in the day and taking refuge anywhere at night till the following morning. In her story, their mother informed her listeners that she met their father in Nigeria where they married before both of them left for the United Kingdom. In the UK, their relationship was characterized by petty quarrels and fighting. Felicia decided to come back to Nigeria where she faced hardship, sickness and abject poverty. After a few probing questions, the prophet offered them a scholarship to resume their education. He however, bemoaned their upbringing which had exposed them to the negative sides of life and said something could be done urgently in that regard.

We thank God for His amazing grace and His wonders that we see happening every week at The SCOAN. It is all about Jesus Christ!

If you have a testimony to share concerning the ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua, this is your opportunity to share it. Let the world hear your testimony, that the light of God may shine in the midst of the darkness!

THE HAND OF GOD IN OUR LIVES – TB JOSHUA


After a time of powerful praise and worship ushering the congregation into the presence of God, Wise Man Racine came forward to preach a message titled, ‘A Life On Purpose’. In his words, the plan of God for us is beautiful. However, human beings long for eternity in ignorance of what God has done. God allows everything to take place at its appointed time and season.

People change the course of their destiny because of impatience or inability to see beyond the present. Blessing, he elaborated, is not an end in itself but a means to an end. Beyond the present situation, there is a purpose.  The wise man picked Ephesians 1:11 as his proof text. We are created for the glory of God. It is God’s purpose for your life that determines the cause and course of your life, he said. Nothing happens for nothing. There is an unseen hand in the life of every human being. The unseen hand is God’s plan for our lives. Time and opportunity act on us all. You are whom you are by His grace. We all work hard for a breakthrough but in some cases there may be no proportionate reward. The fast runner does not always win the race. The brave do not always win the battle either. Wisdom does not guaranty success in life. God, he maintained, wants us to succeed with a purpose. Narrow, according to him, is the way that leads to life, buttressing his point in close reference to Matthew 7:13.

In many cases, we don’t always have it the way we expect it, in spite of our seemingly error-proof plans. When we are frustrated, then we are ready to submit to providence. Man proposes; God disposes. It is the goodness of our cause that interests God Almighty more than our physical or mental disposition. It is your responsibility to find out God’s purpose for your life.

There are unchangeable events in the course of our destiny. Ordinary events may have extraordinary effects in the spirit. When God unravels His plans in our lives, He designs events that cannot be changed. If Joseph had not been thrown into prison, he would not have had link with the throne. If Peter had had a good catch, he would have left before Christ came and that would have changed the course of his life. The wise man aptly advised his listeners to look beyond their situations, as God is fully aware. When it is time for God to manifest His purpose in your life, there will be a driving force that will change your actions and location. There is breakthrough in hardship, if Jesus is involved, the wise man advised, adding that to live life to the fullest, your goal must reflect your purpose.

If we sang the song of praise more and talked less, the world would be more heavenly, Prophet T. B. Joshua said after the choir had led the congregation in worship following Wise Man Racine’s insightful message.  In relation to John 4: 1-17 which he drew the attention of the congregation to, he dwelt on faith as the transformative power of the universe; the power of change from darkness to light. A change from sickness to health; a change from yoke to deliverance; a change from weakness to strength; a change from a faithless to a faithful generation and a change from poverty to blessing are only possible with the transformative power of faith.

The Samaritan woman at the well confirmed Jesus’ statement that she had had five marriages and Jesus pointed her to her future. You may not have believed a vision given to you, the prophet said, because it overwhelmed you beyond imagination but no matter the circumstance, with God all things are possible.  The prophet urged every one of his listeners to be a tomorrow thinker. When Jesus becomes your coach, he said, you will be asked to see what is not yet seen, to do what is not yet done and to say what is not yet said.

Until you experience Jesus, there will be dissatisfaction in your life. There will be a sense of hunger to know what life is all about and a desire to know what happens after life is over.

When you have exhausted your mental and emotional resources, you can no longer rely on yourself. You simply need to trust something or someone stronger or smarter than yourself. Jesus, who can raise the dead, is our choice. Don’t listen to temptation to act out of character or react badly to the emotional weight you are experiencing.  Jesus loves you just as He loves any of His apostles, the prophet reminded the congregation.

TB Joshua versus Critics Hot Interview


TB Joshua

With the way Pastors are been exposed for their mischief extorting money from their congregation  TB Joshua Fans Blog has decided to picked on TB Joshua  whom we believe is the most persecuted Man of God in the world today. TB Joshua has been on our radial for a while and some of the question we would have loved to ask him has been asked by both local and International press. We are reproducing some of the interviews granted by TB Joshua and other Pastors. Watch this space for some shocking revelation……

THE MINISTRY OF GIVING – TB Joshua


A TRUE DISCIPLE

Wise Man Harry delivered the message on Sunday morning. He introduced his sermon by saying there are two sides to life – the spiritual and physical. The title of his message was “A TRUE DISCIPLE”, and the proof text was taken from Mark 10:46-52. The blind man in the story called Jesus the “Son of David”, which is a Messianic title; it is given from above. Though physically unable to see, the blind man could see more than others; he had clearer vision though his enemies had good eyesight. On hearing Jesus’ pronouncement, he cast aside his garment and threw away anything which would hinder him. His garment was symbolic of his old self and all stagnating forces that held him down; he was in his moment of regeneration and renewal.

Wise Man Harry said if every sinner would cast aside his sinful nature like Blind Bartimaeus cast aside his garment, we would have fewer delays in conversion. According to him, Christ is looking for full-time followers, not part-time followers. If you say you are born again or you are a disciple of Christ and you are not, you will never be. It is the mind of God to answer prayers but Christ will not answer prayers until He sees in you a true disciple – a faithful follower, a willing servant and a man of great perception. You must show in your manner that Christ lives in you, he concluded.

Wise Man Harry
Prophet T.B. Joshua later spoke on the essence of Christianity, saying that it is a relationship. He said every Christian should understand, “your contribution to others is an assignment from God”. He continued that we cannot afford to fail God and that our contribution to others in trouble will always solve a problem. To emphasize the importance of giving, some clips of Emmanuel TV Partners engaging in charitable projects were shown.

Prophet T.B. Joshua
EMMANUEL TV PARTNERS IN ZIMBABWE
The first video clip was of the efforts of the Emmanuel TV Partners in Zimbabwe, especially Mr John Chibwe. Inspired by the humanitarian activities he had witnessed on Emmanuel TV, Mr Chibwe purchased a bus for the less privileged community and has been devotedly assisting the visually impaired in their thousands as well as distributing wheelchairs and walking aids to the physically challenged. He was seen in the video distributing bags of rice and maize meal to the needy and helpless.
Mr Chibwe was personally in the service and shared his experience with the congregants. “It is a privilege to be able to give those in need,” he said. “You are a success when you can impact the lives of others”.

EMMANUEL TV PARTNERS IN GHANA

Another video clip was shown, where Emmanuel TV Partners in Ghana led by Chief Justice John Ajet Nasam worked hard to transform lives of people at the Countryside Orphanage. They shared love and care, educational books, kegs of palm oil, drawing boards, buckets and shoes in the spirit of giving love to those in need. They equally purchased a bus, which they explained was, “for the welfare of the home, not for commercial use”. Bags of rice were also shared out to people, and the orphans were not left out.

EMMANUEL TV PALLAM FIRE RELIEF

In another video shown to the congregation, Emmanuel TV Partners visited Pallam in Southern India. They went there to assist the over 700 families whose 400 houses were destroyed in a horrific fire incident. Rice and other provisions were freely distributed. The Rev. Dr P.N.S. Chandra Bose (President of Bethel Bible College; National Vice President, Bible Society of India) spoke in appreciation of the team’s essential relief efforts and thanked Prophet T.B. Joshua for his kindness.

N6 MILLION ON SCHOLARSHIPS

Next was the announcement of The SCOAN Scholarship Scheme. Some students spoke on behalf of others. One of these was Jennifer Osifo who said due to lack of finance after her father left them, she could not go to school. She said that she was living in a family house, helping her poor mother, but she did not want to stay there without an education. She said, “I have never seen my father for the past 7 years.”

She said that she was living in a family house, helping her poor mother, but she did not want to stay there without an education. She said, “I have never seen my father for the past 7 years.”

Image

Magaji Mariam (an SS2 student from Ogun State) spoke next. She said that since her father died, her mother could not take care of her and she could not go to school: “My mates go to school; I’m the only one at home”. She had seen other children being given scholarships on Emmanuel TV and requested that she too would be a partaker.

Image

Joseph Aniene (a student of Industrial Chemistry at the University of Benin) also spoke. He said that his course was an expensive one and would need financial assistance to see him through. For his school fees, accommodation, and books, he said he would need 185,000 Naira.

Sandra Paul (a 100 level Economics/ Statistics student at the University of Benin) pleaded to be helped just as the man of God had been helping others. She needed 186,000 Naira to complete her studies.

A total amount of six million naira was given to the hundreds of students who had come for the scholarships. Two bags of rice were also given to the parents and one bag to each student.

A video was replayed showing a woman named Essie Joseph who was afflicted by the spirit of indebtedness. During her deliverance four weeks ago, the evil spirit said she would never be delivered, saying “Nobody can do it”. In her testimony, she said she had been a food seller for many years but her money kept mysteriously vanishing. She soon ran into debts and obtained loans through her sister. Unable to pay back, the creditors made life impossible for her. The sister’s husband was forced to send her out because of the debts and she was beaten by her creditors.

A woman promised to assist Essie Joseph, the Warri-based food seller, by giving her an address of a man who she said would help her. She was asked to go with the kids to the man’s house to obtain his sympathy. He told her that she needed to give what she had to solve her problem and that she should give him her son for the sum of 400,000 naira.

Essie Joseph

Essie initially refused to be persuaded to sell her boy, Efeme, though the man had asked her to “think properly so as not to die of poverty”. However, due to her dire situation, she was prepared to sell her son to the mysterious buyer. As the day when she was to take her son drew closer, Essie resolved to travel to The SCOAN in Lagos due to encouragement by one of her customers.

After her deliverance, she stayed within The SCOAN premises for a month, daily receiving counsel with God’s Word until this service where Prophet T.B. Joshua gave her N400,000 to pay her debts and blessed her children with scholarships. She also received five bags of rice. One of the congregants, moved by her situation, gave her N100,000 to start business afresh.

Image

Prophet T.B. Joshua encouraged the man to continue such philanthropic endeavours. “You are blessed to bless others. You should continue to do so. Help the needy. Where I am strong, you are weak: where I am weak, you are strong”. Another Emmanuel TV viewer phoned the church that he would pay her house rent and take care of her for one year.

DELIVERED FROM PROSTITUTION THROUGH ANOINTING WATER

Miss Patience Matthews from Akwa Ibom State also testified to the work of God through the Anointing Water. She had been a prostitute, “entertaining three to four men every day” until delivered in the church. She said they were thirteen in the family but two had died earlier. Her mother was dead and father blind. She couldn’t attend school because of poverty and thus entered prostitution. Although she had trained as a fashion designer, she didn’t have the resources to pursue that career.

N200,000 was given to her by the church, as well as three bags of rice. Prophet T.B. Joshua said of her case, “We cannot leave her; we have to help her. After you have worked hard and applied everything perfectly, wait. God still needs to mark it.” A man also phoned the prayer line that he would buy Patience Matthew a new sewing machine. Prophet T.B. Joshua said The SCOAN and Emmanuel TV cannot go places without the ministry of giving – love, kindness, humility, strength, faithfulness and goodness: “We must give it unconditionally for God’s sake. If an assembly is not growing, the head should check his ministry of giving”.

MRS FATIMA UGOVWARHE AND FAMILY: UNITED IN THE CHURCH

Another video was shown. Two young men had come to the church previously to ask for favour from God. However, Prophet T.B. Joshua had asked them to go back home and bring their elderly mother who had been accused as a witch as without their reconciliation, the doors of blessings could not be opened in the family.

ImageDuring this Sunday service, the mother was brought by her children and other members of the family. Mrs Fatima Ugovwhare from Delta State narrated how she lost her husband and how his family pushed her out of his house, alleging that she was the killer. Her brother died and she became lonely and helpless. She was kept in the backyard of the family house and labelled a witch in the entire community.

Image

MRS FATIMA UGOVWARHE AND FAMILY

Prophet T.B. Joshua openly declared that the woman was not a witch and the family reconciled in a loving embrace. She said she had forgiven all those who had accused her.

RECONCILED WITH HER HUSBAND

A video was shown of a woman, through whom an evil spirit spoke, saying it had created disappointment in her life and caused marital disharmony. It had entered her through her mother and said it had closed all doors of success, causing her husband to send her out of the house. She was delivered by Wise Man Harry in Jesus’ name.

ImageMrs Franca Chimenta And Husband

Later, Prophet T.B Joshua phoned to invite her husband. The husband, who had honoured the prophet’s call, said Mrs Franca Chimenta was an epitome of stubbornness; she disregarded him and fought everyone in the compound so much so that the landlord asked him to leave his house. She was into drinking and showed no signs of remorse when cautioned. He said he had already applied for divorce in court and the case was to be heard the following week. Although a lot of people and pastors had called him to settle the problem, he had refused to budge. However, because of the respect he had for Prophet T.B. Joshua, he heeded the prophet’s invitation and promised to withdraw the divorce letter, now his wife was completely delivered.

The woman confessed in church that her mother had a beer parlor where she sold drinks, and it was from there she developed her bad drinking habit. She pleaded with her husband for forgiveness and to the glory of God, the couple were reconciled!

Former Administrator of The Ghana Pentecostal Council John Nana Antoh Speaks on TB Joshua


Culled from 2nd edition of Faith Cometh, Former administrator of the Ghana Pentecostal council, John Nana Antoh testifies of the mighty works the lord is using TB Joshua to do in our present dispensation.

Senior Pastor, Bible School founder and a former administrator of the Ghana Pentecostal Council, Rev. John Nana Antoh, shares with Faith Cometh how his spiritual life took a dramatic turn as a direct result of his encounter with someone who didn’t just preach the Bible, but made it work.

FC: Can you introduce yourself to us?

Rev. Antoh: My name is Reverend John Nana Antoh, am a professor of theology and director of a school called the Religious Academy in Ghana. I am also the senior pastor of a church called Berea Christian Center.

FC: When did you first come to know about the SCOAN?

Rev. Antoh: In 1997, I was the administrator of the Ghana Pentecostal Council. At that time, the man of God wanted to come to Ghana for a crusade and the Ghana Pentecostal Council were asked to host him. As of then, nobody knew him in Ghana. I had been a pastor for several years but I never heard the name T.B. Joshua. When he said he wanted to come to Ghana some Nigerian churches sent their pastors to Ghana to ask our council not to accept him because they said he was an occultist. So, at the beginning, we were very lackadaisical in accepting him.

Former Administrator of The Ghana Pentecostal Council John Nana Antoh

Also a few Nigerian ministers had come to swindle the council before; so we had a very negative impression about Nigerian ministers. Now his own countrymen were coming to tell us: “Don’t accept that man; he is an occultist”. The man of God sent another group to us, saying that he was ready to pay for four pastors from the council to come to the SCOAN, stay for any number of days to see for themselves. So, some senior pastors were chosen and stayed there for five days. When they came back to Ghana, they said: “Listen, this is from God; let us accept the man!” Some of us were arguing: “How can you use only four days to examine the man?” The council came together and had a vote and those who voted for the man of God to come to Ghana won. So, the man of God came to Ghana.

At that time, I served as an interpreter. I didn’t normally serve as an interpreter, but I was so curious, I wanted to get near to the man, as close as possible, so I could examine him. So I offered to be the interpreter. On the first night of the crusade, it was so wonderful! Of the number of Nigerian ministers I have known, they were very boisterous, rough and tough, but here was a man who was so gentle like a lamb. He came so gently, preached a very simple message and then said it was time for healing. He got down from the platform. I was even telling him, “if you go down from the platform the people are going to trample on you! Why don’t you stay on the platform to minister?’’ But he said, “No let’s go down,” I had never seen healing like that! Other ministers stand on top of the platform and pray, and if you get your healing by faith, you get it. But this one, he would go to the blind person direct.

Thousands came for healing and they wrote on the placards the kind of sicknesses they had. The first one he went to was an ex-service man, Brigadier Alijah Freeman – I remember very vividly; he had been blind for 12 years. I was watching very closely because I had ulterior motives; I wanted to be sure that he was not going to use any magic. He just took the placard and rubbed it on the guy’s face. The old man started shouting, “I can see like a baby! I can see like a baby!” The second person he went to was a cripple, just his leg. He said to him: “Come on – stand up!” and then the cripple jumped! I was so shocked; is it magic or is it a dream? He went to a third person. This was a woman who was brought from London. She was having a problem with her kidney and was paralysed. They had declared her hopeless, so they had sent her to come and die in Ghana. They didn’t even bring her out of the car; they had to drive her into the field. So I was following the man of God, and he just opened the door of the car; prayed for the woman and said, “Come out!”And the woman jumped out! I was so shocked!

What really surprised me was the healing of the very well known man in Ghana called ‘Big Boss’. He has a very famous restaurant called ‘Big Boss’. The man is a giant, about 6ft tall and very broad. At that time, ‘Big Boss’ had a serious problem with his kidney; he couldn’t even urinate. Hearing that the man of God was coming, his relatives brought him from the hospital, where he was awaiting an operation. On the field Prophet T.B. Joshua went to where he was, took his placard and prayed a short prayer: I then saw something I had never seen before – there were so many people in the stadium, but this man didn’t even feel shy. He removed the whole of his manhood and started urinating. He urinated for about 30 minutes! When he finished, he breathed and sad “Now, l am healed” So, l said “Big Boss how do you know you are healed? It’s not like cripple you can see walking: your sickness is internal. How do you know you are healed?” He said: “my brother, l tell you am healed! The way l was feeling before coming here. I don’t feel it. I couldn’t urinate for several weeks, but now l can urinate”. I told him: Go to the hospital to do a check up and see if you are really healed” He went and to the hospital and the doctor was shocked! He was totally healed. The following day ‘Big Boss’ came to the crusade field to give his testimony!

What actually surprised and made me to love TB Joshua was that Christ was the centre of everything he did. He would do all these wonderful miracles but after that he will say “l am not the healer. I only know the healer His name is Jesus Christ!” I said to myself, “My God if this man is not of God, who can he be? He is doing miracles and not taking the glory but giving it to Jesus’. The following day, after seeing the miracles, l went home and wept because l felt l had been too proud – so proud to criticize a man of God l have never seen before. That night, l wept bitterly. The following day l went to him – he knew what l was doing but he had a lot of patience with me. I greeted him and then had a short conversation with him. After that he shook my hands and told me “From today, we are friends!” Since then l have been calling him a friend that is closer than a brother. That has been our relationship since 1997.

FC: Do you have a personal testimony to share to strengthen our reader’s faith?

Rev: Antoh: During those days, l was very strong man, doing a lot of work as administrator of the Ghana Pentecostal Council. But one fateful morning in 2004, at around 2am, I wanted to go and urinate. Ass l was walking there, l suddenly collapsed; l didn’t know what happened. When l came around, l discovered that l had been attacked with stroke. It was a very terrible thing – my entire right side was paralysed. The moment l woke up, before even going to the hospital; l was rushed to the SCOAN because everybody knows l know TB Joshua. It was really a matter of death when l was brought here. The man of God ‘went to heaven for me’. I stayed here for 10 days. The man of God prayed for me and took care me and within 10 days l could begin to walk. He said: “Now if you don’t go home, your wife may think something bad has happened to you. So for the sake of your wife, go home nothing will happen to me”. I was afraid but he encouraged me. When l went home, l said: “I wanted to know exactly what happened to me” So l went to the hospital for a check-up and they did a CT scan. When the specialist looked at me, he was amazed. He said: “How can you be alive?” The whole of your brain is full of blood. The man thought l could not hear him, so he was speaking with the Pastor who brought me: How can he be alive? It is only a miracle that can keep this Pastor alive”. They took me home and l said: “Don’t take me to any hospital again” and l decided not to take any medicine. The doctor later assure me: “The way l, have seen Christ uploading you, l believe you will not die but medically impossible”. Later on another medical officer, upon seeing what l had been through, told me that it was the same thing Ariel Sharon, former Prime Minister of Israel through. And for years now still lying coma. It was at that time l realized what the man of God had done for me. I am forever grateful.

Life-Size Art Model of Ariel Sharon In A Coma

FC: so, the impact Prophet TB Joshua in your life is truly changing!

Rev. Antoh: Everything about TB Joshua is a model for me though l studied theology for several years, took several postgraduate degrees in theology, came as a professor of theology, set up a Bible school , until l came to TB Joshua all have been teaching was theory. I came to the Synagogue and saw the Bible demonstrated. The things you read in the Bible – you see them here! That’s why am so surprised that there are people who can have the audacity to talk against the man of God. They can do that because they don’t know. I am sure anybody who is criticizing TB Joshua has never met him personally.

FC: So, in summary what are the lessons you have learnt from the man of God

Rev. Antoh: One thing l have learnt is how to make the centrality of Christ the most fundamental in a person’s life. When l see TB Joshua, l see Christ in him Christ in undeniably the centre of his life. So the greatest thing l have learnt from him is to make Christ the center of my life.

CALL OF GOD AT SCOAN – TB JOSHUA


Addressing the issue that goes through the minds of many, Prophet T.B. Joshua started the message by asking the age old question, ‘How do I know what my calling from God is?’ In answer to the question, the prophet explained that whatever you do through God, whatever He accepts you to do through Him – that is your calling. Raising the Holy Bible, he continued that the first step in knowing your calling is to get to know God better by reading His Word (Psalm 119:105). Referring to Romans 12:2, he said that when you let God transform you by the power of the Holy Spirit, He will literally begin to show you the way. Elaborating on the importance of God’s Word, he said that it is the tool in the hands of the Holy Spirit to nurture us and to furnish us with everything you need to succeed on earth. Giving practical advice on how to use the Word of God in everyday life, the prophet continued, “Talk Scripture in every conversation. You may be on the phone or in a business transaction. Use the Word of God to answer someone. The Word of God becomes your data base for your personal opinion.” After the message, two women came forward to testify to the goodness of God for setting them free from strange addictions that had plagued their lives. One woman, Ruth Christian from Tanzania, having been freed from the bondage of eating uncooked rice in the name of Jesus, gave her testimony stating that since her deliverance, she no longer relished the taste of the uncooked rice. The second woman, delivered from an addiction to sniffing and drinking kerosene, testified that the smell of kerosene had become a revolting odour. Now, both of them are back to eating regular food and enjoying every bite.Following the testimonies, Prophet T.B. Joshua introduced a group of people as they wereThe SCOAN Scholarship Scheme

ushered into the church auditorium – the beneficiaries of The SCOAN Scholarship Programme: the orphans, children of widows, physically challenged and others in need. Each term, the students come to collect their school fees so that they will be able to continue their education. The recipients of the scholarship programme were given a total of 5 million naira in scholarships along with bags of top

quality rice to assist them while they are busy studying. Part of those receiving scholarship were two young men, Clever & Onitsha, who received deliverance from the spirit of stealing through a prophecy from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. It was discovered that due to the lack of parental care and financial means, they had to stop attending school and were living a wayward life to support themselves. To get them back on the right track and prepare them for the bright future ahead, they were given 200,000 naira each to continue their studies at

university. This scholarship programme is just one of the ways that T.B. Joshua leads by example by demonstrating this guiding principle – we begin to succeed with our lives when the hurt and problems matter to us. After the recipients of The SCOAN Scholarship Programme received their school fees, they were escorted to The SCOAN Rice Store where tall stacks of rice had been prepared and the Emmanuel TV Team were positioned ready and waiting to give them their bags or rice.

A video of The Emmanuel TV Partners in Lahore, Pakistan was the next item on the agenda showing the beginning stages of a school being built. The Emmanuel TV Partners along with a pastor from Lahore joined together to make the plans for a seven room school on top of his church building. Once the plans were finished, the supplies necessary to complete the task were brought in to begin laying the foundation – brick by brick. They will continue building until every room is completed and then the students will resume classes and be on the path of a bright future, all because The Emmanuel TV Partners let love lead and looked around to see those in need.

The second service began with Wise Man Racine delivering an inspirational and encouraging message: Welcome To A Place Of Significance. Using the example of Peter, Wise Man Racine gave hope to those listening by saying that Peter’s wasted hours were redeemed and he came to a place of significance, a place that was lost for a period of time. Jesus made Peter the center of his own world. What God has designed you to achieve in His master plan determines your divine course and cause in life. Ending the message, Wise Man Racine spoke into their lives, saying, “As it was for Peter, so it shall be for you! There is indeed a promise of radical transformation for you.” To end the second service, T.B. Joshua and the Wise Men prayed for the congregation and viewers all around the world – encouraging them to exercise their faith and step out in boldness to possess their miracles – healing, salvation and all of God’s blessings.

A PRESS RELEASE FROM THE OFFICE OF T.B. JOSHUA


The General Overseer of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, Ikotun-Egbe, Lagos, Nigeria, Prophet T.B. Joshua has attributed the backwardness of the African Continent to the dearth of consultants and elder statesmen.

Lamenting the situation, T.B. Joshua said that former presidents of the African Continent should, by virtue of their experience and wisdom, become fathers to all political parties, corporate societies, the business class and individuals alike instead of attaching themselves to particular political parties or ethnic groups. The world acclaimed faith healer and philanthropist said each time incumbent presidents in any African country look around for advice, they are disappointed because those they should look up to are busy fighting for one political group, ethnic nationality or another.

Prophet T.B. Joshua advised that whenever an incumbent is leaving the seat of power, he should tell the whole world that henceforth, he is no more a member of any political party or group but father of the whole nation as an ex-president.

As one who has been there, he is in the best position to tell the incumbent and other groups alike what they should do to succeed, since experience is the best teacher. As a former president, he is well placed to serve as a consultant to all these groups. Others will look up to him for counsel to avoid pitfalls in the pursuit of success. In this way, he will bring harmony, cooperation and prosperity to the continent. The peace the continent requires for progress in all fields of endeavour will become a reality as a result. He urged ex-presidents and heads of state to come together and form a union which current leaders can look up to for direction. This will serve as a beacon of hope and force of unity for the continent in general and the various countries in particular. The union will also ensure that current presidents have access to it and its pool of rich experience for better governance.

T.B. Joshua declared that the crises in Libya, Egypt, Cote d’Ivoire, Tunisia and other countries could have been averted or minimized if ex-leaders had come together to form a union to curb the excesses of any current leader. He therefore calls for the urgency of this union for the good of the entire continent.

THE ABIDING POWER OF GOD


MRS CHIKE DELIVERED FROM MARINE SPIRIT

Wise Man Harry

Following a very interesting message titled, ‘The Mystery Of God’s Grace’ by Wise Man Harry

TB Joshua

Prophet T.B. Joshua highlighted some key events of the previous Sunday service and a video clip was activated upon his request. The clip was that of Mr and Mrs Christian Chioke in which the husband offered to abandon the wife because of her untoward behaviour towards him.

Showing disdain and arrogance as she came to the altar with her husband, the wife entrapped in the pervading aura of the Holy Spirit began to confess her true nature. She described

Mr & Mrs Christian Chioke

herself as a giant in the marine world who had destroyed the fortunes of many men including that of her husband. She was second in command in the kingdom and had the power to walk in the water while others swam. She was born with the marine spirit and had four children and wealth in the marine world. She described her husband as a man staying with him, his fortunes having been destroyed by her. They hailed from the same village where he, at 24, met her and married her but she used the opportunity of their togetherness to reduce the once prosperous man from affluence to zero like she did to many other men whom she entrapped into sex relationships with her

Mr & Mrs Christian Chioke

powers. What she enjoyed was destroying men and she had a snake in her which she used as a means of doing the havoc to men. She had used her powers in the snake and her eyes to cause the downfall of many men and pastors. Her voice on the phone could also seduce men. Her attempt on Prophet T.B. Joshua in that regard failed because of the latter’s unique anointing.
She met her husband in 2001 in their village when he came for a chieftaincy title conferred on him. On that occasion,

Mr & Mrs Christian Chioke

they exchanged addresses and phone numbers after which she travelled to visit him in Kaduna. She used her visit to turn the man from prosperity to poverty after which she left him but reunited with him in Port Harcourt when his fortunes seemed to revive. In Port Harcourt, she gave his fortunes a final blow that reduced him to nothing other than a big boy who lived in an apartment rented by her. Before then, he had been deceived by friends to borrow money from banks to enhance his business. Even though he felt he had paid the money, the banks came and confiscated his vehicles and property for defaulting. In many cases, he would notice that his money got lost without cause and in many cases he noticed that his wife acquired huge amounts of money without effort. She confessed that she could cause money to be paid into her bank account or her wardrobe through her spiritual powers.
Having watched Emmanuel TV somewhere, both came to the Church and the woman positioned herself where she thought she could seduce the prophet but luck was not on her side as the mass prayer disarmed her and reduced her power to a nullity.
After the deliverance of the couple, Christian shrugged his shoulders in refusal to accept her as his wife any more maintaining that she had destroyed his business and fortune. She knelt down to beg him and also sought the assistance of the prophet in this regard, reminding Christian that she was a new being after the deliverance. The prophet assured Christian that they would rise together as they fell together and that he should embrace her in marriage without misgivings. Following this assurance, he stretched his hands to welcome his wife into a new matrimony.

ANTHONY URHIE NOW BUBBLING IN HEALTH AND AFFLUENCE

Anthony Urhie Before And After of His Healing

As a way of confirming the assurance, the prophet had another video clip played, relating to a victim of the internet. In it a young man, named, Urhie Anthony who wanted a foreign Master degree and a foreign scholarship in addition to his degrees, linked up with a man on the internet through whom he hoped to actualize his ambition.

In course of their relationship on the internet, Anthony, an accountant by profession, demanded a picture of

Anthony Urhie & Friend

his respected internet friend. To his surprise, what Anthony received after a long delay was a picture of a demon with two horns. In reply to Anthony’s enquiries, the internet friend merely laughed, ‘ha-ha’ and said that was he. Thereafter, he disconnected all links with Anthony who then began a battle with snakes in his house. In two days, he killed seven snakes in his house. In addition, he noticed internal heat in him and his body was heavy as if he carried twenty bags of cement on himself. His eyes and sight were also affected almost to the point of blindness. After his deliverance and assurances of good health in October last year, he went back to his Delta State.
He emerged at the altar to prove to Mr Christian Chioke that the prophet’s words of assurance were not empty, as today he, Anthony is back to health and affluence and never needed to wear glasses any more after the deliverance from the ordeal in the hands of the internet serpent. Anthony was accompanied to the Church by his friend, Samuel Marere, who has been his friend through thick and thin.

MRS SEFI DELIVERS HER BABY SAFELY IN THE SCOAN

Mrs Sefi & Baby

A woman who was booked for operation to bring out her baby came to The SCOAN to seek the face of the Lord in her

Donavan & Nikky Are Now Parents

plight. Received by Wise Man John Chi who prayed for her and prophesied that she would deliver a baby girl, Mrs Blessing Sefi actually delivered a baby girl as prophesied by the wiseman. Glory to Jesus! DONAVAN AND NIKKY ARE NOW PARENTS
Another testimony came from Mr Donavan and his wife, Nikky, from South Africa who attended the December 2009 Fruit Of The Womb Meeting after exhausting modern medicine to deliver themselves from barrenness. As the prophet revealed, the Lord had instructed him to obtain an apron and use it to clean the altar, Bible and pulpit and cause it to be passed round all participants of the Meeting. Like their co-participants, the Donavan family touched the apron which wiped their barrenness away and by February 2010, Nikky had conceived. Today, they are happy parents of a baby girl. May the Lord’s name be extolled!

EMILIA WILLIAMS HEALED OF DIABETES
For over 33 years Emilia, a Cameroonian, had suffered from diabetes. She came by faith to The SCOAN where she attended the prayer line

Emilia suffered Diabetes

and collected the Anointing Water before travelling to the USA where she lives. Applying the Anointing Water after prayer as instructed, she received deliverance from diabetes as revealed in a hospital test which confirmed the reduction of her blood sugar from 130 to 74 and she came to give her testimony in full gratitude to God.

THE ANOINTING WATER ACROSS THE WORLD
A clip of the miracles associated with the Anointing Water was on the screen and all watched how country after country it remained constant in delivering people from contrary spirits and giving healing to many people from all forms of sickness. Some of the places visited were Kazikstan in China where a woman with stiff neck was healed, the USA where many with contrary spirits were delivered and others suffering from ailments were healed. The same feat was repeated in Jamaica, Ukraine and Russia proving that God has equal control over the fortunes of his children anywhere in the world.

MR MADUKA HEALED OF ASTHMA
David Maduka suffered the attack of asthma for seven years during which time he sought healing in modern and traditional medicines without success and depended on an inhaler for breathing. A friend drew his attention to Emmanuel TV after which he came to The SCOAN for the Anointing Water. He got his final healing after administering the Anointing Water as prescribed. Thanks be to God!

THE CHUKWUKAS TO BECOME PARENTS AFTER 15 YEARS OF BARRENNESS
Mr Fidelis Chukwuka of Delta, Nigeria and his wife were barren for 15 years because of low sperm count among other complications. Unfortunately, even though a solution looked in sight in The SCOAN, people discouraged him with the story that the prophet was difficult to see. When he finally came in May, he collected the Anointing Water and they applied it. By the following month, his wife was pregnant and doctors who were surprised asked her whether she was still in the first marriage. By God’s grace the Chukwukas will soon be proud parents. To God be the glory!

MRS STELLA OKORO DELIVERED FROM THE SPIRIT OF DRUNKENNESS
Like her husband who possessed the spirit of drunkenness and died of liver infection induced by incessant drinking, Mrs Okoro saw herself drinking alcohol for years under the same spirit. She could drink 13 bottles a day under the influence of the spirit making her shun her responsibilities towards her children. Getting home after the drinking spree, she would be reminded by her disappointed children of her late home coming.
In a beer parlour, she watched Emmanuel TV and became touched enough to come to The SCOAN for the Anointing Water. She administered the Anointing Water according to prescription and something came out of her after that, making her develop hatred even for cold beer which was her favourite. We thank God for the miracle.

ANOINTING WATER RENDERED ENGR STEPHEN KURE BULLET-PROOF
In his habit of taking the Anointing Water daily, Engr Stephen Kure went to his site after that ritual and ran into armed robbers there who demanded his car key. Though he gave them the car key, they shot him at a close range in the belly and blood oozed out from the stomach. Later, it was seen that the bullets merely scratched the stomach; they could not penetrate owing to the Anointing Water. No weapon fashioned by the enemy against Kure prospered, Glory to Jesus!

PASTOR SHIKO APWAM ADMINISTERS ANOINTING WATER IN HIS CHURCH
A minister of God in Johannesburg, South Africa, Shiko Apwam having been convinced of God’s power in the Anointing Water met Prophet T.B. Joshua and collected a sample for administration in his church. As he did so, the anointing in the water sent contrary spirits in disarray. Many who were afflicted with infirmities were healed and he advised his congregation to be watching Emmanuel TV.

PROPHECY REVIEW
As the service went on, the prophet had cause to draw the attention of his listeners to one of his prophecies six months earlier. The prophecy related to the longest serving president in Africa in the Arab nation being under day service, pressure to resign.
Also in the mass prayer a man said to be an armed robber and assassin vomited an egg. The service was brought to a temporary close awaiting Monday noon.

GOD’S WORD WORKING WONDERS IN OUR TIME


TO HIS POWER NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE

TB JOSHUA

In a spirited sermon to awaken the congregation to the power of God, Prophet T. B. Joshua reminded the Church of the greatness of God and His ready disposition to forgive sins, however grievous some of these sins may be. In his words God is capable of doing anything and also forgiving any sin. To His power nothing is impossible. Breaking in on the choral music which had been reverberating all over the Church and to which the congregation responded in unison with elegant steps, Prophet T. B. Joshua enthusiastically spoke on the forgiving spirit of God with copious illustrations. In his words, the past is forgiven. We have seen a sinner’s character healed, the drunkard becoming sober, the harlot becoming chastened and the liar becoming truthful. “What then is the fear?” he asked the congregation. He spiritedly reminded his listeners that if they trust in God, that trust will save them. Trusting in the suffering of Christ is enough to save us, deliver us and make us whole. He concluded the sermon by advising the congregation to remain in trust.

WHAT MUST I DO TO BE SAVED?

Wise Man John Chi introduced his message with a series of questions.

How do we achieve a desired goal? Who wants to be saved? What must I do to be saved? He aptly referred the congregation to Acts 16: 29-32 which provided the answer to his questions: Believe in the Lord and you will be saved. According to him, God has promised salvation for whoever shall trust His Son. Race, age brackets, academic qualifications, wealth or any other attribute cannot save us outside Christ. If you are willing to be saved, Jesus is willing. Jesus brings hope and succour to those who trust Him. He is the bread to the hungry and road map to the lost. Whatever you are, you need Christ to be saved. God has a role to play in your salvation just as you too have a role to play. It takes your willingness and God’s ability to bring about your salvation.
Our hearts and minds must be reset to agree with God’s plan for our lives. You must get rid of those things that derail you from God. You cannot experience peace under the dominion of satan. Satan is sin. Another name for satan is sin.

Quoting Psalm 51:7 as a reference text the Wise Man admonished the congregation on the need to be cleansed of sins. According to him King David saw the need to be cleansed. Wash me with water whiter than snow and remove all impurity. David knew he would not have place in God’s kingdom unless he was washed from sins. In his sins, David could not see anything other than the fruit of sin: failure in the family, in the battle field etc. Unless you are cleansed of your sins, your blessing will receive challenges. The attitude of repentance and faith in your heart keeps you closer to God. Mistakes are correctable. If you make a mistake, don’t run from God; run to Him. Because David ran to God in spite of his sins, he remains one of the greatest Kings in Israel today. Your Father in Heaven has anticipated your sins and prepared for you. You have not committed an unpardonable sin. Our lives are in God’s hand and we cannot please Him without a thorough reformation of heart and life. God requires a heart that does not bear grudges. Doubts and unbelief put us on the wrong track. Jesus loves you just as He does any of His children. Jesus is able to forgive all our sins, he concluded.

THE SPIRIT OF APOSTLE PAUL HAS ARRIVED IN MACEDONIA

Wise Man, Harry and his wonderful performances in Macedonia attracted his comments. The prophet told the congregation that the crusade in Macedonia attracted a large turn out of participants. It was so wonderful and even comparable to those spiritually hosted by the prophet himself in Indonesia and Singapore. It had to be extended to the following day i.e. Sunday and Monday. Wise Man, Harry also revealed to Prophet T. B. Joshua his vision to be in Macedonia especially close to Paul and Silas’s prison for tourists to see the wonders of God.
A clip on the wonderful works being performed by Wise Man, Harry surfaced on the screen and the congregation watched with rapt interest.

RECONCILIATION OF BROKEN HOMES
Mr and Mrs Ifah brought out their children and Mrs Ifah, the spokesperson accused their daughter, Judith of witchcraft before the entire congregation. She narrated how a baby of hers died mysteriously after a period of excessive stooling. She painted a picture of lack of peace in their family and of the sickness of her husband which had defied healing.

The daughter, Judith Ifah confessed to being a witch and added that it was the result of the fruit juice which she accepted from one of her classmates. She said she told her mother the dream she had after taking the juice and her mother prayed for her. She revealed that the giver of the juice asked her to bring their baby to the coven and that was the cause of the baby’s death. She said that she ate the baby. She also revealed how she was advised to use a rope to tie her father to his bed and cause his health to deteriorate. All these feats would attract to her a second position in the witchcraft world.
In reaction, Prophet T.B. Joshua advised parents to bring up their children in the way of the Lord to have peace. The child in question was left in the hands of satan because of the parents’ carelessness. The prophet pronounced Judith a witch or demon possessed as presented by the parents.
He then asked the parents to lay hands on her and ask every unclean spirit to leave her. That was how Judith was delivered. The prophet however warned both parents not to call her a witch after the deliverances.

INTERNET VICTIM
A lady by name Memory, from Zimbabwe but living in South Africa confessed how she was hoodwinked promises of monetary offers on the internet. She was taught incantations which she mastered but none of the promises materialised. Instead, her marital home became bedevilled with problems to such an extent that she used the police to eject her husband from the home. She then pleaded with the man of God for deliverance. At the exclamation of the name, Jesus by one of the evangelists she fell down and was delivered.

ACCUSATION OF WITCHCRAFT
One Emmanuel Chijoke and his relations all of the Abraham family from Enugu complained about the problems of setback and deaths in their family attributing all this to their mother.
The genesis of the accusation was a crusade in Abuja at which one of Emmanuel’s cousins was a participant and where he was told by a man of God there that their mother was the brain behind all the woes in the family. The said man of God was then invited to Enugu where he confirmed his earlier vision that their mother was a witch and that only her head and shoulders was human; the chest down to the feet was vulture in appearance. Surprisingly to the family, their mother could not refute the accusation by the man of God. She complained that at that time, her eyes, ears and mouth were muffled and she could not talk.

She then challenged the family to take her to anywhere and they would realise that she is not a witch. This was the reason they came to the SCOAN.

In his verdict, the man of God pronounced the woman witchcraft negative and ordered the children to kneel down to her in apology.

FOOT ULCER HEALED
Before the prayer line, the participants of which were zoomed on the screen,
a lady, 20 year old Miss Sulman who was healed of foot ulcer came to give testimony and also made to show herself to those in the prayer line to reassure them of their healing

HIV AIDS TESTIMONIES
Three men and three women who were healed of HIV AIDS came to give their testimonies. Among them who spoke was 27 year old Mrs Motunrayo Sowemimo,

who was tested positive with Hiv aids type one in the Federal Ministry of Health, Abuja.


After the prayer line where she was declared free, she said she became stronger and ate with more relish.
She went back to the same hospital for another test but thanks to God, she was Hiv negative this time.

SCHOLARSHIP BENEFICIARIES

Miss Oduwole Olayinka

Miss Oduwole Olayinka, a youth worker in the church who came bagged 1st class (Electrical/Electronics), University of Lagos also got a scholarship award from the Church to do a Master degree in one of the best universities in the world. She consequently applied for admission and was offered same in three good universities in the United Kingdom. These were the Universities of Southampton, Edinburgh and that of Surrey.

She picked the University of Southampton as the best and the Church paid a total sum of £13,900 as her fees. Later and in consonance with the man of God’s crave for the best, the University College, London, offered her admission. Without hesitation, she changed her mind and picked the latest offer. A total sum of £18,245 was paid as fees for her to start classes on the 11th of October 2010.
The man of God seized the opportunity to advise the congregation to always look for the needy to help rather than waiting at home for the needy to come to them. In this way, according to the prophet, they would not be helping the wrong people.

Condemned To Die, Destined To Live All The Way From Death Row Saved By Jesus Christ


ONE by one they led them out. Faces covered in black. Handcuffed. Their last seconds of life. Last moments of reflection. The last breath of this world. No time to even say goodbye. One by one their names were called. The other five had already gone – gone for ever – gone to the gallows. A cold sweat broke out on his brow. He was next in line. This was it. The end. The grand finale. The next few seconds would be the last he would ever spend in life…

The tale of Chuks Olisemeka is block-buster material. It could well pass for a best-selling fiction thriller. But this is no fiction. It’s the real story of a young man who came from condemnation to salvation, in both the literal and spiritual sense. The story of a man who came face to face with death in a way few people could ever imagine. The story of redemption amidst retribution.

//

From a humble home in Delta to wild parties in Lagos, dangerous dealings in cannabis in Tunisia and gun-training for armed robbery in the Saharan desert, from a condemned cell in Tunis’ maximum security prison to a Nigerian church he had never heard of before, here is Chuks’ incredible journey, in his own words:

Chuks’ incredible journey, in his own words

“My name is Chuks Olisemeka and I come from Delta State. When my mother was pregnant with me, she separated from my father. Later in 1991, my mother died of sickness. From there my grandmother took care of me. I never knew my father and hardly knew my mum, Mrs Josephine. In the year 2000 after finishing secondary school, I came to Lagos. I didn’t know anybody in Lagos. What made me come is that some friends came from Lagos every December with flashy flashy things, spending money. When I asked them, they said they went to Victoria Island.  One day I just decided by myself to come to Lagos, though I didn’t know anyone there and had no money.  I was only 20. Some people dropped me in Ojota. At that time I still smoked so I bought a cigar and began smoking. I saw one guy like me who now bought a cigarette. We got talking and he now asked me some questions. When I introduced myself to him, the guy said he would help me for accommodation. We bought Indian hemp together and he then took me to his house.

“Every night we went to the clubs and enjoyed ourselves. I was helping in his brother’s electronics business in Alaba. One day we met some guys who came from Tunisia. Those guys gave us the guidelines about Tunisia that time, but we never said we wanted to travel as we were enjoying in Lagos. Some months later, my close friend Chima suggested we both go to Tunisia and I agreed. We went by road through the desert. We entered from Libya, through Tripoli. Those guys we met gave us the address of their place in Tunisia. We met some guys there and a Nigerian guy now introduced us to one man who was dealing in drugs. He had some boys working for him. Every night he would give you 200 or 300 grams and you would go to the club and hawk drugs. Cocaine. At the end of the day he would give you $300. From there he introduced us to the business. We were moving with guys who were into it before and from there we got our own customers.

“After about eight months in the business, I met Jack, an Italian man. Every time the man would normally come to me and buy drugs; he would buy in quantity. He was a big man, and always came with his boys. My friend called me and said let us travel to Morocco and from there to Spain. But already that Jack said he would introduce me to his business, so I was not interested in going to Spain. After about two weeks, Jack introduced me to his business – robbery business.

“I didn’t know how to shoot a gun, so every morning he took me to the desert with some guys and taught me how to use a gun. We started going on operations. We go with information. Some people will come from Europe and land in Tunisia, and stay in a hotel – so the manager of the hotel would give us information, and we would go there and rob. After robbing, he would give me $5000. It was not only in Tunisia we robbed, but also in Libya – because they share a border together. We were based in Tunis. On one operation in a company, we got $800,000 – so Jack now gave me $20,000. I know tomorrow I would see more money, so I would go to the clubs, gamble, buy expensive wears and move with high-class babes. Then something happened in 2004.

“This hotel manager now brought information that one woman came from Holland who brought big money for a contract, and the woman lodged in his hotel. Our boss called us and said we should go to this hotel. We reached there around 10am. We were five – four boys and one Algerian girl. We met the woman and collected the money. Two of our members were down and three went up – it was a five storey building. On the way down, we just heard guns from nowhere. Two of our members were shot. They died there instantly. They now shot the girl, but we didn’t know the place where the bullets were coming from. We used one woman as a human shield to cover us saying – if you shoot again, we will shoot her – and we now managed to drag ourselves out and enter our car. As we started the engine, they started shooting again. We saw almost five jeeps pursuing us, police vehicles – blowing sirens. We got to a bend at the traffic lights. We were supposed to wait but because of the pressure, we moved on. One lorry coming from the other side collided full-on with our vehicle. It somersaulted. That is why I have these scars. At that time, I never knew that my friend who was driving was already dead.

“The policemen came, and rushed me to hospital. I was in serious pain – blood covered everywhere and I couldn’t even open my eyes. The following day, they put POP all over me. Three men came and started interviewing me, and I opened up for them. They wrote everything down. The following day, they took me to our building – Jack was no more there, because he heard the information. They searched everywhere. They saw some drugs and carried them, including three vehicles. They padlocked the building, and took me back to hospital.

“The following day, they took me to court. I still had POP all over, and they had to carry me. When I reached court, the magistrate looked at my condition and said they should carry me back to hospital. I spent seven months in hospital. After seven months they took me back to court, and tried the case. After that, they took me to prison. From prison, I still went to the court. In August 2007 my final judgement came. After the judgement, they sentenced me to death by hanging. I had already given my life to Christ in prison. This guy Mr Charles normally shared the Word of God with me. But after the sentence they didn’t take me back to the same prison again. They took me to another prison where they put those who are condemned to death. We were five inside the prison room. I started praying there.

“On 15th August, I dreamt and saw myself in this big church with someone saying, ‘Welcome to Synagogue Church, Emmanuel!’ When I woke up, I didn’t understand the dream. I’d never heard of Synagogue Church before. On 19th August, some men came with a lady. They started calling names. When they had called the name, they would put a mask to cover the person and handcuff him. They now carried him outside to be hanged. I had already said today is the day I would die, but I still had this hope that God would do a miracle. When it got to my turn, the woman asked – ‘Where is this boy’s paper?’ They started searching and finally said they could not see it. So she said they should go and find my case file, that if they didn’t find the case file, they should not take me anywhere. The men carried the other five for hanging. Only me was left in that place. A week, two weeks, a month went by and nobody talked to me. It was only me in the cell. Some men now came and took me back to the other prison.

“It was 2008, February. One day the warden called me and said they wanted to hand me over to the Nigerian embassy to send me back to my country. I saw about three men, wearing suits who asked me for my name. They now signed all these documents and told me to carry my load. They took me to the airport and one man followed me down to Nigeria. After about three hours, we arrived. They now handed me over to some men who ushered me inside a motor. A few hours later, I saw myself in Ikoyi prison. They searched me and then took me to the prison cell. I was still praying to God.

“Another year passed in prison. It was July 2009 and I dreamed again – Welcome to Synagogue Church – Emmanuel! It was exactly the same dream I had seen in the prison in Tunisia. But this time, I saw rain fall on me as I entered inside the church, and I rejoiced with people inside. But I never knew the place. I had never heard of Prophet T.B. Joshua. Two weeks later, one of the wardens called me. He said they brought some papers yesterday and that I didn’t have a case to answer, that I should be released. I was just surprised, shocked. He gave me one paper, and told me I should carry my load. I didn’t have anything to carry.

“As I left the gate, I asked God: where shall I go? Direct me – I don’t know where to go. Rain was falling and suddenly that dream came to me – welcome to Synagogue Church – Emmanuel. I asked the warden – where is Synagogue? He said it’s far, in Ikotun. I asked where is Ikotun. God has directed me there. He looked at me and asked if I had money. The man gave me N500 and told me how to get to the church. It was a Friday.

“I finally found the church. I met one man and asked him – how can I see the pastor here? He looked at me and asked where I was from. I told him from a very far place. He said I should come back to church early on Sunday. I was still wearing the clothes I had in prison. It was Sunday. As I entered the church that morning, I recognised it from the dream. Everything was the same as I had seen it in that dream. I prayed that God should direct the man of God to where I am. God finally directed him to me in the second service. After prophesying to about four people, he touched me and said you are a murderer – and not in this country but another country.  I had never met him before, but he knew me. He prayed and I found myself down on the floor. As he touched me, I believed all my problems had gone. That day I became a new person in life. The church now took care of me, gave me new clothes and a place to stay. God is really using that man (T.B. Joshua). Nobody in Nigeria can do that thing – you don’t know a person before and after praying for you – he puts you in his house, gives you money for clothes and feeding and treats you as one of his own. He is a real man of God.

“There are many things people can learn from me. God created everybody for a purpose. Instead of pursuing fast money which makes you go into crime in which you may die or find yourself in prison, you should follow Christ. Those who travel outside Nigeria and don’t know where they are going to or anybody there, there is no way they will not take to crime when they get there. It’s either you take to robbery or drug business or go into 419 – and after everything you will find yourself in bigger trouble.

“I regret a lot, because I wasted so many years in prison. If not the flashy things of this life, I would not go into all of that crime. If I had calmed down and given my life to Christ that time, by now I am supposed to know where I am going in life. But now – if God could give me another chance,  I will worship Him, praise Him all my days. I believe God really has something for me in this life. He has a purpose for my living.

Following Chuk’s arrival in the church straight from prison, he remained there for almost two months for a period of rehabilitation and reformation, receiving the message of salvation and learning about the ways of God. He was then given N120, 000, three bags of rice and a Holy Bible to start his life afresh.

God’s Is Still Working In The Church – T.B. Joshua (PALM SUNDAY)


The service at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations began with the usual morning prayer followed by an inspiring Easter message by Evangelist Racine titled, “INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS”.The man of God, T.B. Joshua came into the service about 10:20 am. He wished everyone a happy Palm Sunday and urged all believers in Christ Jesus to continue to live in the glory and majesty of His resurrection. According to him, “Easter is all about love, redemption, forgiveness, repentance and forbearance. It is time to confess in faith. Whatever a

man confesses in faith, he shall receive because our confession solves the problem. Our confession is our present attitude towards God. Therefore, we should be very careful of what we confess. Your confession is what God says about your situation. Let the Spirit of God guide you in whatever you say or do. The confession of our lips should have our heart’s full agreement. Do not say “Amen” because T.B. Joshua says, “in the name of Jesus Christ”, say “Amen” because you believe. This is the traditional or conventional way of life in which most of us were brought up. If you say, “Amen” when you do not believe, it’s like you are working against yourself because a wrong confession hinders the Spirit’s work in our body. If I say, “Show your excitement” and you are not happy, do not bother because you are in the presence of God.”
After the brief message, the prophet talked about the confirmation of the prophetic message concerning an Asian country given on the 14th of February 2010, which he expounded upon last Sunday, the 21st of March. He had prophesied earlier that we should pray for an Asian country, saying, “Those who lodge in hotel, I see an Asian country. I see a place where thousands of people lodge being burnt.” He mentioned that the event would take place in an Asian country with, “IN” at the initial letters of the spelling of the name, adding that he would set prayer warriors to pray over this matter.

He ended by saying, “Fast and pray on Tuesday.” Last Sunday, 21ST March, the prophet repeated the prophecy, this time giving the name of the Asian country in question. He said, “Pray for India. Remember the country in your prayers. Fast and pray on Tuesday”. In direct confirmation of the prophecy, breaking news footage on CNN on Tuesday showed a report of the fire outbreak in a historic eatery and residential building in Kolkata, India. The prophet noted that if not for God’s intervention, thousands would have lost their lives.
Next, video footage featuring the update of the activities of the Emmanuel TV Haiti Earthquake Relief Team was shown. The reputation of the Emmanuel TV Haiti Earthquake Relief Team has grown to the extent that some large international aid organizations such as OIM and Shelter Box have begun to contribute to their efforts. So far, a large amount of educational materials and large tents have been donated to the Emmanuel TV Team in confidence that in their hands these supplies would get to the people who really needed them most. The Team visited orphanage homes in Arcahaie where they provided several tents as well as educational packs, water purification tablets and medical assistance for the children.
The Team also visited refugee camps outside the capital Port-au-Prince, where they gave out over 20 tents to the most vulnerable people who had been affected by the earthquake. More partners and friends of Emmanuel TV from the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa and Greece joined the Team in Haiti.
The Team from Greece, the most recent group to join the Emmanuel TV Haiti Earthquake relief team in Haiti, took with them a large amount of medical supplies and other essential materials needed at the Emmanuel TV field hospital, Clinique Emmanuel.
SCHOLARSHIPS
During the service, over 30 students from various schools and universities in Nigeria and other countries who are all a part of T.B. Joshua’s scholarship scheme received their school fees, accommodation, feeding allowances as well as 2 bags of rice each for the new term. Among those who spoke in appreciation of T.B. Joshua’s benevolence was Benjamin Aduna Kwane, a Ghanaian and BSc. student of Administration in the University of Ghana, who the man of God granted a scholarship in August, 2009

He has completed his first semester and has come for fees for tuition, accommodation, feeding and projects for the new semester. He concluded his speech by saying that not only has he benefitted financially and spiritually from the man of God, as have many other students but also that he has learnt from the prophet’s act of giving which he sees as worth emulating. In his response, the prophet said that there is no greater will than to raise people in righteousness by offering support and assistance to them without any condition attached so that after their university education, when they are better placed, they would also be a help to others.
The total sum received by these students was 3.1 million naira for their school fees, accommodation, feeding and other needs in addition to 2 bags of rice for each of them.
PROPHECY

Prophecy

Among the numerous people who received messages of prophecy through the prophet that day was Mr Kunle Adeyemi who came to The SCOAN last Sunday because his job was terminated. During the service, the prophet prophesied that there was a man named Kunle who had two homes, two “wives” but only one of them was known to his family. Concerning the second wife, the man of God revealed that there was a plan by certain criminals to attack Mr Kunle one early morning when he would be in the house.

If he was not killed, he would become a “dead-living”. After the prophecy last Sunday, the prophet invited his wife and him for reconciliation and the service today witnessed that reconciliation as Mr Kunle’s wife graciously forgave him.


PRAYER LINE

The prayer began as usual with those who came with bodily afflictions such as leg ulcer, swollen belly and body, hernia and

cancer cases, followed by those with difficulties in walking, mental disorders, epilepsy and similar conditions. Then came people who were diagnosed HIV/AIDS positive from different countries before those with general cases such as stiff neck, fruit of the womb, stomach ulcer, diabetes, hypertension, liver, kidney and heart problems and so on. There were many foreign visitors from various countries also in attendance. In course of the prayer, Prophet T.B. Joshua also ministered the new Anointing Water to the sick and they were all healed. The first service ended at 2:20 PM.
TESTIMONIES
The second service started with testimonies from those who had received healing from using the Anointing Water. Firstly, Mrs Okonkwo Chinwe who came with lumbar spondylosis and was using a lumbar corset and knee braces to ease the pain, was healed through the new Anointing Water at the prayer line. Mr Joshua Ovwo who suffered from the problem of stiff neck due to cervical spondylosis and consequently was using a neck collar was also healed through the ministering of the Anointing Water at the prayer line.

Thirdly, Mr Oviemuno Amraidhe from Delta State testified of how he came to the church a few months ago and the Anointed Water he received from the man of God broke the yoke of barrenness in the lives of his wife and two other women. Mr Amraidhe’s wife, Christy Amraidhe, was diagnosed with the problem of inverted womb. One of the two other women was his brother’s wife, Mrs Ugbosu Sylvestina, a legal practitioner and Mrs Adline Blessing who suffered a tubal blockage due to blood clotting in her tubes. After they all had Anointing Water sprayed into their mouths they met with their husbands and are now seven months pregnant.
Praise and worship by The SCOAN choir followed the testimonies until the prophet returned to the church auditorium to begin the mass prayer. The prophet asked the congregation to rebuke the spirit that kills, steals and destroys and to remove the hands of evil spirits from their affairs.
During the mass prayer, the man of God dished out astonishing prophetic messages. The first prophecy concerned a lady who the man of God said was under the church gallery and was a prostitute living in a hotel. With tears flowing down her face, Miss Rosemary came forward to confirm the prophecy. The prophet said that this lady came seeking deliverance and she must not return to the hotel. After her deliverance, Prophet T.B. Joshua said that people of God should join hands to restore her. Another case was a lady the man of God described as tall, light in complexion and aged 32. The prophet said she was a bed-wetter and that it was an attack. She also possessed a ghost spirit and any man who met with her would in turn, bed-wet.
Prophet T.B. Joshua also gave a national prophecy. He said, “Let us pray for our countries and ask God to redeem your land. I see a flag being brought down. Which country? I see three. One and two were wet but now the third. Wet flag cannot fly but goes down. Pray for your country for redemption.” Then the song, ‘God’s intervention’ was sung while the congregation reflected over the prophet’s words. After the song, the man of God gave instruction to believers worldwide to observe fasting on Tuesday and Thursday concerning the prophecy.
The service ended around 7:00 PM rounded up with the deliverance of some of the people who had received a word of prophecy including the prostitute and the lady who used to bed-wet. Join us again next week for the next live service at the SCOAN to witness the evidence of Jesus Christ which is lives changed, Only on Emmanuel TV. Emmanuel! God with us.

ALL THINGS BECOME NEW


On Sunday morning the 22nd of March 2010, people flocked to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, some came for healing at the prayerline, some came for the first time, others came to their usual seat being members of the renowned Church (whose service is broadcast live every week on their TV station, Emmanuel TV) to see the mighty power of God working in the Spirit.

Evangelist Evelyn Joshua (T.B. Joshua’s wife)

The service began at 9am with worship and praise, cultivating an atmosphere of faith in the huge auditorium. At 10am sharp, Evangelist Evelyn Joshua (T.B. Joshua’s wife) came out to give a message titled, ‘Walking In His Grace’. She spoke boldly telling us that, “The peace of conscience we derive from walking with the Lord, produces internal joy.” And that, “Rebuilding us requires our attention, commitment, our desire and obedience to God’s Word.” She also reminded us that “No one can succeed alone”. After around 40 minutes of preaching Evangelist Evelyn concluded by saying, “As long as we keep walking in His grace we will not be without the Father, without the Helper”.

The choir picked up again, then T.B. Joshua himself came out. After commending the message, he brought out the new anointing water and from the crowd’s reaction – something they have all been waiting for. He brought out three packaged waters in different coloured containers, orange – for fruit of the womb, green – for healing and deliverance and purple for blessing and prosperity. He explained that God can use any medium to express Himself and described the anointing water as a means to set one apart for God’s attention. As he was talking a queue formed of those who had testimonies to share after using the anointing water.

First up was Corporal Sugir Kabir Amos, from Anambra State, Nigeria who had broken both legs two years earlier in a motor accident. He explained that after the accident, he was operated on, twice – showing us photographs of when he was hospitalised and finally discharged with a walking frame.

We watched the video of him coming to The SCOAN with the same walking frame, slowly moving along with it, limiting him greatly. Next he was in the prayerline where Prophet T.B. Joshua prayed for him and administered the anointing water. One minute he was sitting pleading for healing, the next minute he was standing, then walking, rejoicing at God’s mighty power that healed him in moments. Jesus Christ continues to show Himself strong in the lives of those who put their trust in Him.

Next up were a couple Mr & Mrs Okorie from Ebonyi state, Nigeria. The lady had, had the problem of ovarian cyst and multiple fibroid. She explained that when she had told the doctors that she wanted to operate – they asked her ‘why now?’ She said because the cyst was so large that people always asked if she was pregnant. A painful question for a lady who had been told by doctors that due to her condition she was unable to conceive.

After moving back and forth from hospital to hospital and after being operated on and then referred. She got frustrated and gave up hope for medical assistance. Then she watched Emmanuel TV where she saw men and woman of different nationalities who once faced similar problems as herself, now standing with their new baby giving testimony after using the anointing water given to them by T.B. Joshua. She immediately set out for the following service day with one aim in mind – to get some of the anointing water for herself. She came and received the anointing water for the fruit of the womb. One week later, her check up was due at the hospital. To the doctor’s and her great surprise, the medical report showed that the large cyst and multiple fibroids were gone! Not only that but she was pregnant! God can surely use any means to reach the needs of His people. What is impossible to man, is possible for God Almighty who is the same yesterday, today and for ever.

Many other testimonies followed and due to the large crowd it became obvious that using such means as the anointing water many lives could benefit from the saving, healing and delivering grace within. God continues to use everything He’s created. A pamphlet also went round to explain the use of the anointing water.

After the faith building testimonies, T.B. Joshua moved directly to the prayerline where many sick people were waiting for prayer. Among them was Pastor Rowland Ekwerike who had come all the way from Indianapolis, USA. He had lost the ability to speak clearly – as a minister of the Gospel this posed a great obstacle. T.B. Joshua poured the anointing water into his mouth and moments later he began preaching powerfully to the congregation! Just as Jesus Christ used Paul and anything that came into contact with him – to heal all manners of sicknesses and diseases. As it was, so it is. Jesus’ power is not stopped just because He is no longer visibly in our midst. His power and effectiveness are even greater today because He can be present in all places at all times by His Spirit.

After the prayerline there was a mass prayer session where more people were healed and set free both inside and outside of the auditorium where an over flow crowd was gathered.

The first service came to a close at 2.30pm and the second service soon followed where many prophecies and more instant testimonies were given. After this for those who remained, T.B. Joshua distributed the new anointing water. Some even at the mere receiving of the carton began to shake, roll and manifest – God chooses grace rather than works. He does as He wills and can use any medium to express Himself. Blessed, refreshed and made new was the mood that people left the auditorium satisfied and confident that as Christians, no matter the situation, Jesus Christ can see them through, after having so many cases to strengthen their faith. God keeps giving us reasons to praise His Holy name. Keep watching Emmanuel TV for rebroadcasts of the service as T.B. Joshua says, “Better is not good enough; the best is yet to come!”

TB Joshua Speaks As Emmanuel Tv’S Cargo Plane Lands In Haiti


A story in Article Source concerning the Emmanuel TV Haiti Earthquake Relief team who are currently in Haiti with medical personnel and foodstuffs to assist the victims of the tragic earthquake and help in rebuilding the nation…

In the wake of the recent devastating earthquake which descended on the nation of Haiti, there has been outcry from the world for people and nations to reach out to the affected areas of the country with relief materials which could help alleviate the sufferings of the people of Haiti. A large number of organisations, governments and individuals alike have been quick to respond to this call by sending in their donations in cash to help the people of the nation of Haiti.

The humanitarian crisis that the people and nation of Haiti have to come to terms with has become clearer to the world with the commentaries of the media reporters on ground, who have reported that the efforts of more contributors are required; not only in cash but much more in their physical presence, so they can assist and support the efforts of the powerful nations of the world.

TB Joshua - Your rewards in life are determined by the problems you solve for someone else

Lending a voice to this group of people is Prophet TB Joshua, the General Overseer and founder of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, Lagos Nigeria, and the founder of Emmanuel TV. Having sent a cargo plane with relief materials to the nation and people of Haiti, in a bid to assuage the distress of the people and nation of Haiti, Prophet TB Joshua has now come out to speak to the world to trail the same path.

Quoting from the Holy bible, in the book of Matthew 25 vs. 45, he explained that it was imperative that everybody sends in their own support to the people of Haiti at this time e of trial in the lives. He underlined the impact of the earthquake on the lives of the children of Haiti, saying they were the future of the nation of Haiti. He stressed the role of love in the life of a true Christian, by reading from the book of 1st Corinthians 13 vs. 13.

Sequel to his first statement, when he announced to the church congregation that the cargo plane that delivered the relief materials had successfully landed in Haiti. He also stated that the team of Emmanuel TV partners had started efforts to build a community clinic, which he noted had already taken delivery of the first baby, named Emmanuella at the Clinique Emmanuel.

Hear him: “I am TB Joshua, on behalf of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations family. I pray to God to richly bless you, in Jesus name, Amen. Thank you for being part of our broadcast today. You would be blessed as you receive the words of God. May the lord bless you abundantly as you help the Haiti people, In Jesus name. Thank you. As regards what is happening in Haiti, we cannot pretend not to see, we are one another’s strength.”

“We need to witness to a troubled world, remember Christ says, all our doings without love are nothing. A true Christian is known by his love. I will like to take you to the book of 1st Corinthians 13 vs. 13: And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. Ultimately, we are called to respond to all human needs for that is what love entails. This does not however mean that the demonstration of love for the needy alone is enough to bring us to salvation, but it forms the basis for judging our level of kindness. Our level of faithfulness because looking the other way when our neighbour is in trouble is equal to rejecting Christ himself. The people of Haiti are in need!”

The children of Haiti, some of their parents are trapped as we can see them

“What can you give to them; give it for God’s sake. Love the children of Haiti for God’s sake and you will be loved. Give the people of Haiti for God’s sake and you will receive the mercy and favour of God. They are homeless, like sheep without a shepherd.”

Continuing, he said: “God has no hands but only our hands to reach them. Reach them; let his passion check our compassion. It is praise worthy not only when you give within your power but beyond your power. The people of Haiti need you at this time.”

“What can you do for the people of Haiti, do it for God’s sake. Looking the other way when your neighbour in Haiti is in trouble is tantamount to rejecting Christ himself. Whatever is in your hand now is a solution to the people of Haiti. I will like to take you to the book of Matthew 25 vs. 45: ‘Assuredly I say to you, whatever you do the least of your fellow brother that you do unto me.’ Now as a Christian whatever you do or fail to do to your fellow brother that you do unto God. Whatever you do to the people of Haiti that you do unto God. Help the people of Haiti, help the children of Haiti.”

Let us pray: “Lord Jesus, fill our lives with the fire of your love, help us to grow in love until it flows from our heart to others. You have taught us that all our doings without love are nothing. Grant us a loving heart, a will to give and share, to show we really care. Teach us lord to be ever kind, with saviour first in mind. In Jesus Christ name, amen.

“There are many charity organisations, reach them with your gift. Help the people of Haiti, Help the children of Haiti; they are the future of Haiti.”

He concluded by saying: “Prosperity comes when our aims and focus and desire is to build God’s kingdom, as you make a decision today to give for the gospel God will proper you today, In Jesus name. Send your seed and trust that we will deliver and God will bless you In Jesus name. I wish to stop here but I pray that the words of God will bless you in a special way, we meet again, bye!”
