Emmanuel TV: A Testimony Of Transformation

Emmanuel TV, the television station of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) began its remarkable journey with a bold statement of intent, cast in a slogan which was of more than mere words: ‘Changing lives, changing nations, changing the world.’ Since its entry into the airwaves on March 10th2006, countless stories of transformation, reformation and salvation paint a bold picture of the impact it has had on individuals, families and nations alike. Although no meter can truly measure Emmanuel TV’s worldwide influence, it is safe to say, by its unwavering progress, that God is clearly the divine driver behind its fortunes. Here is an Emmanuel TV story sure to stir wonder in the depths of your heart, bring a tear to your eye and leave you in awe of an awesome God.  

Life was literally hellish for Maria Chisanga, her volatile husband dealing her verbal and physical abuse again in a fit of drunken madness. Their marriage had not started on such a chaotic note, but alcohol had slowly consumed, overtaken and destroyed him. Alex was not the man she first met. For the young Zambian couple, already with two kids, the situation was dire and the marriage at the point of breaking beyond repair. “I don’t know whether it was due to the money I started having,” Alex reminisced. “But the moment we had our second kid, problems started coming and I started drinking. I was going out every night with friends and they influenced me to drink. From that time, things started to go downhill. The deeper it went, the worse life became and I started drinking badly. It was uncontrollable.”

As the alcohol clouded his judgement and veiled his values, Alex started going regularly outside his marital home, eloping with different women on various occasions, including the younger sister of Maria’s closest friend. He had three children outside wedlock. “Eventually I ran away from my house, with my wife crying bitterly. They went to my father and different pastors – still they couldn’t stop me. You know, when you are carried away – you are gone.” Alex left his house in disarray, with his five children from Maria becoming virtually fatherless. “I was still financially supporting my wife, but soon stopped because I was with other women. That’s when I moved completely to Botswana and forgot taking care of her and the children completely.”

Each attempted return to reconcile resulted in more strife and fight. Maria eventually made the decision to leave the marriage and return to her hometown. “When my husband started drinking, it was horrible,” Maria soberly stated. “It was a time of crying, a time of crises, a very hard time for me. We were fighting and shouting at each other every day. He was beating me any time he felt like it. My children were so much affected by the drinking of their father. They came to the point of telling me, ‘Mummy – if you can leave this man, I think it would be better for you – because this man is beating you and bringing so many problems in our lives today.’ Even paying their school fees was a problem. Eating was a problem. He was beating me so much, and I got tired. I prayed and prayed until I got tired and decided to leave the marriage.”

If anyone is in a position to explain the devastating and destructive effect of alcohol abuse, it is Alex Chisanga. With turmoil throughout his home and life, Alex turned to extreme drinking, literally existing in a state of delirium, dependent on the next beer-binge. “There was not a day that I did not drink,” he vividly explained. “The time I am talking with you now, maybe a carton would be gone. You know, when you got paid, you would buy some cartons and put them in the fridge – instead of buying food. You might go and get five or six cartons and put them in the fridge. It came to the extent that I could not even sit like this without having a beer, because I would be shaking. I needed to have a beer with me.  When I was going to the toilet, I would carry a beer. It came to a time when I couldn’t even cook for myself. I had to go out and buy food before I could eat. Sometimes, I would spend two or three days without food; but beer was there. Even when I was going to bed, when I slept, I would be having a bottle with me. As I would be trying to sleep, I would be drinking. In the night, all I would dream of was beer. And the moment I woke up, I would start. Sometimes, the bottle would fall from my hands in the night. You would just get up in the morning and see the mess, go to the fridge and get another one. My beer was too much. I couldn’t live without beer. Like you are sitting down now – I couldn’t. I needed to have it with me. I needed to have it in my stomach – if I didn’t, I would become something else. I would become wild.”

As to be expected, the extreme addiction had taken its toll on him both physically and psychologically, with regular thoughts of suicide whirling within his head. “Physically, I was not normal. There were times when I would feel like a mad person. All it would tell you – go to the fridge, it is there. I even went bankrupt because of my beer addiction. If it was not there and you didn’t have money in the bank, you would force yourself to go and sell something so that at least, it would be there. It must be there. Things were finished. My vehicle – I sold it because of that. We had two fridges – I sold one of them. I sold everything to buy beer. I was only left with my TV and a bed to sleep in. If you came close to me, you would sense the smell of my beer. It got to the extent that my whole body smelt of beer, because sometimes I wouldn’t bathe. I would start to have a headache that was unstoppable – then something came to you and told you to get rid of your life.”Even while performing his duties as a heavy truck driver, Alex would drive under the influence of alcohol; astonishingly however, he was able to avoid accidents. “I used to hide alcohol at work. Even when I was driving, behind my seat you would find a carton of my beer.”

The downward spiral continued for Alex, bound in what could be termed as slavery to the spirit of alcohol that had totally engulfed his existence. It was the December of 2008 – over three years since he had last seen or spoken to his wife. “One Sunday morning, a friend of mine came to find out whether I was at home,” explained Alex, who had been drinking throughout the nights of Friday and Saturday. “He asked me if I had a decoder in my living room.” In tune with his answer, the friend entered his house and fiddled with the apparatus before tuning in to a particular television station. “He increased the volume and then joined me outside on the veranda where I was drinking. After a while, he heard the voice of the man of God preaching.” Alex’s friend had tuned to Emmanuel TV, and it was the start of a live Sunday Service from The SCOAN with Prophet T.B. Joshua. “By the time he heard the man of God say, ‘Distance is not a barrier! Let us pray for the viewers’ – he said to me, ‘Alex – you need to come and watch this.’” Literally forcing the reluctant drunkard to enter his house, the friend brought him before the television. “He told me: ‘Come – I need you to touch the screen’. I told him, ‘No, let me just watch the man.’ Then he just grabbed my hand and forcefully put it on the screen. At that moment, the man of God said: ‘Whatever is not of Jesus – out!’ That’s when I went out on the ground.” Rolling uncontrollably on the floor of his living room, Alex was receiving a remarkable deliverance as a service some thousands of miles away in Lagos, Nigeria progressed. The spirits tormenting his life and family were being chased out. “I must have been there for over 10 minutes. All I remember is that the man of God shouted, ‘In the name of Jesus – you are free’ and I just woke up at once, in dirty clothes and sweating profusely.”

Alex slowly got up, several neighbours having gathered due to the commotion, stared at him in amazement. The darkness that clouded his blood-shot eyes had gone. “I looked around and the first thing I asked was: ‘Where is my wife?’ My friend who had put on Emmanuel TV and all my neighbours started crying. They told me ‘Alex, your wife left you over three years ago.’ I couldn’t believe it. I went to the bedroom and started checking for my wife’s clothes. Then I discovered it was true – my wife was no longer with me. I began to cry.” Alex asked for a drink of water and a disbelieving neighbour brought out both bottles of water and beer, asking him to choose. He chose water.

Reconciliation

The following day, Alex took a fortnight’s leave from work and started a desperate journey back to Zambia to find his wife. Discovering that his five children were scattered throughout the community and that his wife had returned to her father’s house, he set out to meet her. The passion to reunite was so deep that the journey of four days took him only two, to the point where he was 15km from the village of his father-in-law but with no transport available. “I walked the 15km on foot with the rain pouring and soaking me throughout. It was 1.00 when I finally arrived.” In the dead of night, Alex stood before his wife’s house and cried out. “When my father-in-law heard my voice, he said, ‘Alex, is that you?’ He then turned to shout, ‘Maria – your husband is here!’ ”It was a glorious moment, an unprecedented reconciliation upon 10 minutes in front of a unique television station. “Everyone was crying and we were hugging one another. In the morning, we had a meeting as a family. I had to explain to them what happened and how I got delivered through Emmanuel TV. They were surprised because what they heard about me and what they were seeing was a totally different thing. I knelt and apologised in the presence of the family, but my father-in-law stood me up and said: You remain our son. They killed a goat and we ate and celebrated together.” “It was a wonderful day,” recalled Maria. “Despite all that had happened, we were so happy to see him back in our lives – because we didn’t stop loving him. We were always praying for him and asking God to intervene in his situation – and He did!” After one week, the reunited couple returned to Botswana.

Alex’s remarkable encounter with God through Emmanuel TV signalled the last alcoholic drink he took, as well as the birth of a new relationship with Maria.“It’s like we have just been married. I never realised before how beautiful my wife is! Now when I am off work, I will be in the house, working and eating together with her. I also reunited with my children, and they came back to spend holidays with us.” It can be genuinely called a total transformation. “Thank God for the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV for what they have done – they have brought life to my life. I was a dead person who had nothing in the head apart from beer – beer was my focus. If I didn’t have a beer, I didn’t have anything. But today, I am a different person, I don’t even think about beer anymore, not a single craving.” For Maria, it’s as if she has a new husband. “There is a big, big difference in his life – now he is a new man. We can share the Bible together; we can pray together, we can do all things together. No more drinking. No more fighting. No more shouting. He is even a preacher of the Word of God now! We are enjoying our relationship!”

Her advice to couples about to enter marriage is on the necessity of involving God. “I will advise those who are entering into marriage to invite God into their life, because a marriage without God has a limit, but with God – all things are possible. To my fellow people out there, hold fast to God – our God is a good God, He never fails. Jesus is a conqueror – and once you believe in Him, you too are a conqueror with Him.”

Alex’s advice, informed by an unforgettable life-experience, is simple: “Thank God that I can give you these words of advice: do not go into alcohol. Rather choose the Lord Jesus Christ, who will give you life, who will give light to your future. Not beer – beer doesn’t give life. Beer only spoils your life and kills you in a manner that the more beer you drink, the older you become, the more you destroy yourself – your life will be miserable. Let’s hold fast to God, not the things of this world. Let’s have a new life in Him that will never put us in misery, a new life that will always bring joy and happiness. God created us in His own image, and He wants us to follow His ways. Lucky we are that we are given Emmanuel TV! We’ve been given the prophet – Senior Prophet T.B. Joshua. He is not the prophet of Nigeria; he is a prophet of all nations. He is a prophet that is given to us to change our lives. Like me personally speaking now – if you saw me some years ago, you would shed tears. The tears you would be shedding are tears of joy that Emmanuel TV and its partners with Prophet T.B. Joshua have brought life to me today. I, Alex, am alive today because of Emmanuel TV and Prophet T.B. Joshua. All I can say is thank you!”

Emmanuel TV Testimony: Delivered From The Spirit Of Smoking

James Mangiza couldn’t live without smoking. From the tender age of 12, the young South African literally lived in a state of dependency upon cigarettes and a drug he called ‘dagga’, popularly known as marijuana. It had been 20 years of addiction, consuming both time and finances as well as causing his health to spiral steadily downwards. However one day while James was watching Emmanuel TV with his family, Prophet T.B. Joshua began to pray for viewers around the world. It turned out to be a day he would ever remember, a day of radical change.

Smoking Dagga

Smoking Dagga

“I would like to express my gratitude to God for one of the greatest miracles which happened in my life through watching Emmanuel TV. I have been smoking cigarettes and ‘dagga’ since the age of 12 and I am now 32. I would smoke it before and after school every day. I became so addicted as I grew up that I wouldn’t do anything without fist smoking ‘dagga’ and cigarettes. Per day I would smoke ‘dagga’ 5 to 10 times and at least 20 cigarettes. I started watching Emmanuel TV with my family at the end of last year. In March this year (2011), I heard Prophet T.B. Joshua saying the viewers at home should touch the screen and that distance is not a barrier. I touched the screen as he prayed. The next morning when I tried to smoke a normal cigarette I felt like I was taking a paralyzing drug. I just couldn’t smoke it. I waited a few minutes, lit another one and this time nearly fell to the ground as I tried to smoke. From that day until now, it has been three months and I have never touched cigarettes or ‘dagga’. I am completely delivered from that spirit of smoking! Emmanuel! Thank You, Jesus!”

Deliverance From 39 Demons At SCOAN London

Wow! This is a truly awesome testimony I just read on The SCOAN London Blog. God is truly working wonders through the Anointing Water around the world! I know your faith will be lifted as you read:

The story of Margaret Shirima is one that is seldom heard. It is her experience of real demonic possession. Born in Tanzania, Margaret ran away from home aged 9 spending almost a year in Kenya with a peculiar woman she met at the market. But it was at the age of sixteen in her grandmother’s house in the village that she had her first encounter with demons. She was busy cooking when she was interrupted by a sharp noise. It was the sound of someone walking. Expecting to see one of her siblings, Margaret had already prepared her response: ‘It’s not ready yet.’ No one. ‘Who’s there?’ No one. An eerie silence ensued. There was something in the room with her. A cold sweat broke out on Margaret’s brow. Who was it? What was it? With fear tightening its grip, she tried desperately to stand but found herself pinned to her seat. Opening her mouth to shout, no sound came out. And then, with one foul swoop, they entered. The first devilish instruction was clear: ‘Run!!!’

From the day 39 demons took residence within Margaret, it has been a life filled with sorrow and torment. Her remarkable journey from Tanzania to Sweden to SCOAN London where she eventually received her deliverance is one filled with unique experiences and strange encounters. The demons wanted her dead at all costs but Jesus Christ came to give life and life in abundance. And life triumphed over death. Here is her remarkable story, in her own words, spoken during her testimony at SCOAN London on Sunday 29th May 2011, one week after she received her mighty deliverance:

The Entrance
“My name is Margaret, I am a Tanzanian but I live in Sweden. I came all the way from Sweden to SCOAN London because I was possessed by 39 demons. These demons entered my life at an early age. Even when I was nine years old, a strange spirit pushed me to run away from my home to a different country. What I remember most is when I was 16 years old and something entered my body while I was in my grandmother’s house. I was sitting, cooking food when I physically felt this force come inside of me. I jumped up and ran wildly into the street. My family were running after me right until the next town where they finally subdued me.

Burning Crucifixes
“They took me to the missionary hospital where I was admitted. In the night, I was climbing up and taking down all the crucifixes because as I was looking at them, I felt they were burning me. In the morning they took me to another hospital where they checked my brain, believing it was a psychological problem. They did not find anything wrong with me. From that day, the torment really started.

Unusual Power In Anger
“Nothing I was doing was succeeding. When I got married, my marriage could not last. We divorced because of constant fights at home. Even after that, no relationship was lasting. I had a hatred for men.

“People were afraid of me. They knew how I used to behave when I was angry. I had very unusual power. I could do anything. There was even a time I lifted my boss off the ground with one hand when she provoked me. She was scared of me after that. These demons caused me to curse. When I was angry with someone, I would curse them – and everything negative I would say when I was angry would come to pass. For example, when my boss was rude to me, I told her that she would lose her job and suffer for the rest of her life. The following week, she was sacked and up until now, she has been applying for a job and has not found anything.

Unending Fight At Night
“I was having so many strange dreams. I remember fighting with a man in the dream who wanted to sleep with me. We would fight so much. In the morning when I woke up, I would have pain in my body and physical marks on my leg and back where we had been fighting. I was also fighting with so many snakes. There was a time I saw many birds come into my room, even though the windows were closed. One of the birds perched on my shoulder. I had such severe pains in my shoulder when I woke up that I could barely walk.

Exam Blackout
“These demons also affected my career so much. I had no peace in my job so I decided to go for studies. During studies I would sit in the classroom and understand everything but during the exam, everything I learned would disappear. There was even a time I took the exam paper and saw all the questions but as I wanted to answer the questions, the paper turned black. Physically. I could not answer even a single question. Then I had sudden pains in my ear and when I checked, my earring had disappeared. It was clearly spiritual.

Lengthy Operations
“The demons affected my health so much because I was so sick. I was a regular visitor at hospital but the doctors could never really diagnose the problem I was having. I also went through a very big jaw operation that nearly claimed my life. It was supposed to last a few hours but ended up taking the whole day. Even then, it wasn’t enough. I had three different operations but they couldn’t find out what the real problem was with my jaw.

Strange Behaviour
“My family knew I was possessed because strange things happened to me. I would feel thirsty and a small glass of water would not satisfy me. They would give me a bottle of water with four litres. Within a minute, I drank everything. I could drink three or four of them a day without going to the toilet. I could also go for over seven days without even sleeping. I had some strange supernatural strength. There was another time when hundreds of cockroaches entered the house where I was staying. No one knew how they entered and the following morning they all disappeared. I had many other unusual experiences like this.

King Of Demons
“I went to many different places in search of solution. I turned to the witch doctors where my life became worse. The torment I was facing became even more. One of the witch doctors told me that my issue was very big because I had very big demons inside of me. He said that one of them was a king of demons and that there was no way he could help me unless I obeyed what the demons wanted and served them. Basically, the demons within me wanted me to serve them and become a witch doctor myself. He said that I would become a very rich, powerful and successful witch doctor if I just submitted to the demons, that they would instruct me what to do. I was not satisfied with the answers he gave me.

Chicken Tears
“Someone directed me to another witch doctor who was very, very famous. When I got there, I saw hundreds of people sitting outside waiting for him. When it was my turn, one of his disciples told me to sit down. He gave me a chicken to put on my lap. I held the chicken and it was facing the front. After a few seconds, the chicken turned and faced me and tears began running from his eyes. The tears were running onto the material I was wearing. After some minutes, that chicken died without anyone squeezing it or giving it anything. After it died, the witch doctor looked very uneasy. He told me, ‘Your case is very big. I can’t do anything for you because if I try, the demons within you will attack and kill me as they did the chicken.’ He told me to go back to my family and do some sacrifices to the demons to appease them.

A Desperate Search
“I went to so many churches in search of deliverance, including one crusade in Sweden where so many churches had gathered for a meeting. There were literally thousands of people in attendance. Many pastors there tried to deliver me but it was impossible. They even had to end the service earlier than they were supposed to that day because of me. All the people went home and they left some of the pastors praying for me. The only thing I can remember is waking up at 10pm at night, lying on the floor. That’s when I came back to my senses. I was told that I had been very aggressive towards the pastors. I was hitting some of them, holding their heads and banging them together. They said I was talking in different languages. Eventually, they had to call eight strong men to hold me down. They sat on me but the demonic strength was so much that I would throw all of them off and continue attacking the pastors. They couldn’t deliver me.

A Remarkable Discovery
“I remember on 7th May 2011, I was in a shop and I was feeling so bad and depressed. I did not have peace. My life was such a mess. I met a lady at the shop and we started talking. I opened up about some of the problems I was facing and she then told me about Emmanuel TV. I was amazed at what I heard. I went on YouTube and began watching videos of T.B. Joshua when he was ministering to people. I began believing that this could be the place I would receive my deliverance. This lady told me that she was planning to attend The SCOAN Branch in London. Although I only heard about the ministry two weeks earlier, I decided to join her. I was supposed to be operated for severe bleeding on Friday 20th May but something was telling me to attend SCOAN first.

Before reading on, we encourage you to watch Margaret’s remarkable deliverance at SCOAN London on Sunday May 22nd 2011:

Death Thwarted
“When the Anointing Water was being sprayed, I felt fire – like something was burning me. I felt like I needed to go and hide myself. I don’t really remember what happened afterwards. It was only after my deliverance that I found out what the demons were saying. They said that I was so stubborn, that I ran away from the operation they had planned for me. I was supposed to be operated on Friday 20th May, the Friday before that Sunday. They knew that I was very stubborn, so 20 more demons were ready to join the 39 others because they wanted that operation to be my death. I was supposed to be operated Friday before I came to UK but something was telling me that I had to seek God more – because even the doctors themselves told me that they were going to operate on me but they couldn’t guarantee that that would bring solution to my sickness.

Discouraging Tactics
“The demons were trying to bring down people’s faith. They knew that people knew that at The SCOAN, there is a powerful God at work and that through coming there, they would be delivered. The demons were trying to discourage the faith of people so that they would believe there was no power there. Also, they were trying to buy time so that they would not have time to help and deliver others. The demons also said through me that it was only T.B. Joshua that could deliver me and he had sent the wrong people. That wasn’t true. It was only that they wanted to bring down the evangelists’ faith. Also, so that people sitting there waiting in the service would lose faith. They recognised T.B. Joshua as a true servant of God, a man of God. They knew that he was serving God. They were just trying to discourage the people.

Demons Defeated
“The Anointing Water has power from God. Through that water ministered to me, the demons were defeated. When I fell to the ground and the congregation were singing, ‘There is power in the blood of Jesus’, I felt like something wanted to come out of me. Like when you shake a Coca Cola bottle and the gas builds up and you suddenly open it, I felt something going out of my head like that. The 39 demons came out! At last!

Newly Born
“Since my deliverance, I have been feeling so well! I don’t remember myself feeling this good. Even on my honeymoon, I was not feeling half of what I am feeling now. I feel fresh. I feel alive. I have peace. I have joy. I have hope. I feel like I am newly born. Right now, I sleep like a baby. I can’t even remember myself sleeping this peacefully. I just don’t have the words to describe it. All I can say is thank You to Jesus Christ for giving me another chance!

Jesus Christ: The Only Way
“I thank God for the Anointing Water. I thank God for using Prophet T.B. Joshua to produce this water. As he is just one person, he cannot reach the whole world. But through this Anointing Water, people like me who have suffered for so long have received their deliverance, and I still believe that many, many more will come and receive their own deliverance from Jesus Christ through this Anointing Water. No matter how much money someone uses to travel around the world seeking solution, Jesus Christ is the only way. I went around the world but the only freedom I received came through Jesus Christ. There is no witch doctor who can solve your problem. Give your life to Jesus and you will be saved!”

Ovarian Cyst Healing At The SCOAN

Ratidzo Chabayanzara, a Zimbabwean who lives in Australia has a wonderful testimony to share after visiting The SCOAN: “I was diagnosed with a left ovarian cyst and it was due for operation. This was going to be my second operation and within me, I knew I would not come out of it alive. I watched Emmanuel TV and that’s when I decided to go to The SCOAN. I was in the Prayer Line of Sunday 5-12-2010. The man of God Prophet T.B. Joshua also prayed for me during the Monday Service and I experienced God’s power at work in my life. When I went back home to Zimbabwe, I went for a scan and there was no cyst. I am healed!”

Thank You Jesus Christ for healing Ratidzo. If you have a testimony to share from the wonderful things God is doing at The SCOAN, please do so here for the glory of God!

SCOAN London Testimony – Healed Of Cervical Cancer

Here is another powerful testimony from The SCOAN London Blog. God is really doing wonderful things in their midst through the new Anointing Water.

Rutendo had been in pains almost her entire life. For as long as she could remember, excruciating pains surrounded her lower abdomen. Since painkillers seemed to have no effect, she just had to learn to live with it. After numerous medical check-ups, the young Zimbabwean was diagnosed with the early stages of cervical cancer. Merely weeks before treatment was due to start, someone directed Rutendo to SCOAN London, advising her to seek divine intervention…

“My name is Rutendo and I live in Milton Keynes. Generally since I was a young girl I have always had problems in my lower abdomen. I used to have a lot of severe pains. I have been on antibiotics for as long as I can remember. I have had it checked out so many times by many doctors and recently I was diagnosed with early signs of cervical cancer. I was actually supposed to start treatment soon. The truth is that I have always lived in pain. I grew up with it. At school I would just start having pains. At work, I could just be sitting there watching TV and the pains would start all over my lower abdomen. It was really mysterious because even when I was young and hadn’t done anything, I would still be in pains. It was really frustrating for me, my mum and the whole family. Even the doctors would give me antibiotics but the pains would just continue. It was something that was always there. I just learned to live with the pain.”

As Rutendo stood in the midst of the congregation during the time of mass prayer at SCOAN London, a prayer poured forth from her heart. “I remember I was standing there, just praying and saying, ‘God I want a miracle to happen to me today.’ Then suddenly I felt dizzy and started falling, losing control.” Rutendo fell to the ground and began to shake wildly as the evil spirit behind her sickness began to react. “What I mostly felt was fire like a belt across my lower abdomen. It felt like there was a belt of fire there. The thing was being extracted, like something was being pulled out of my lower abdomen. It was very painful because it is like something that has been embedded and you are trying to pull it out.”

As Rutendo lay on the floor, the Anointing Water was ministered to her as God was removing every trace of sickness from her life. “As they continued spraying the Anointing Water, the fire and burning continued. After that, I just felt this peacefulness and whatever it is just left. After that, there was just a tingling sensation but all the pains had gone.”

Rising to her feet, Rutendo began to tearfully thank God. An ordeal that had lasted almost a lifetime had finally come to an end. Since that moment, Rutendo has not experienced any abdominal pains whatsoever! “Honestly, I don’t feel any lower abdominal pains. I go to bed, I walk around at work – for the first time I am not in any pains.” Aside from the obvious change in her health, Rutendo also experienced the peace of God. “I used to have a lot of anger in me. Now I feel more relieved, more peaceful and there is more clarity in my life – because I used to have a lot of confusion in making decisions. I know where I am going and I know what I want so there is no confusion any more. I feel lighter, as if a weight has been taken away. I feel like a different person. And there is no pain!”

Rutendo’s advice to others awaiting a touch from God is clear. “We should come with a receiving heart. Initially when I was standing in the congregation, I was praying, ‘God I want You to locate me today, to change and touch me.’ I know God heard that cry in me. So if you come here today and sincerely pray, ‘God locate me, I want You to touch me’ and you believe it, then I know that once the Anointing Water is ministered, your life is going to change as well.”

Hallelujah! As T.B. Joshua says, “There is never a sickness Jesus Christ cannot heal. To His power, nothing is impossible!” We thank God for this wonderful miracle. One lesson to be learned is that we must deal with the spirit behind our sickness if we are to receive a lasting solution.

Healed Through YouTube!

Here is an awesome testimony I just saw on The SCOAN London Blog. Your faith will definitely be increased as you read:

Everything about the journey was going smoothly. The operatic concert had been spectacular, especially since her daughter was among the performers! All that remained now was the long journey from the Glaswegian hills back to her hometown of Bradford. Mata entered the train without any premonition of what was about to occur. Little did she know that ahead lay a nightmarish journey that continued even beyond the train – a sudden sickness that left Mata so weak she feared for life itself. Eleven hours later, stretched out on her bed with vomit-filled buckets around her, Mata desperately searched on Google for ‘Christian healing’. She needed divine intervention. The result was extraordinary.

“My name is Mata. I’m living in Bradford with my husband and we have six children. Basically, it all started when I went to Glasgow with my husband and young daughter. We were going to watch our other daughter perform. She is an opera singer. Everything was fine. I was healthy and happy. But when we stepped foot on the train to go back, I started feeling sick. The pains in my stomach became so intense and I had to rush to the toilet. I was vomiting and diarrhoea was coming out all the way home to Bradford, for five long hours. I was getting weaker and weaker by the minute. By the time we reached home I just collapsed into bed. Again, the same thing was going on – I was vomiting and there was so much diarrhoea. All the fluids were disappearing from my body. I was getting really sick at this stage and my husband advised me to go to hospital but I felt too weak. I asked my children to give me my laptop, which they put by my bed. I knew it was too urgent; I needed somebody to pray for me. I typed in ‘Christian healing’ on Google and I saw a video of Prophet T.B. Joshua appear.”

What Mata had discovered was a YouTube clip of T.B. Joshua praying for the viewers, simply titled, ‘People get healed watching this’ with close to 300,000 views. She had no prior knowledge whatsoever of T.B. Joshua, The SCOAN or Emmanuel TV.  “At this stage, I was throwing up every five minutes – there were buckets everywhere.  Then suddenly he started to pray very strongly. He said, ‘Viewers all around the world, just touch the screen.’ As I was lying there in pain, touching the screen of my laptop, my whole body just started to shake. I was shaking and vibrating and I could feel that something had stopped the vomiting. I knew if I had continued like that, there wasn’t going to be anything left of me – I would have just died. Something stopped the vomiting.”

As Mata played the clip of T.B. Joshua praying for viewers around the world, she was receiving her divine healing in the name of Jesus Christ. “He told all the people there, ‘Come on, stand up!’ By faith, I just stood up as if I was okay, but I knew my body was weak. As I stood up, I thought to myself, ‘Wow, I am being healed! This man who I don’t know anything about is healing me through my laptop and I am standing up – what’s going on?’ ” Strength supernaturally returned to Mata’s frail body. It was truly miraculous! When Mata made her way to the bathroom, she could barely recognise herself. Such was the extent to which the unknown sickness had ravaged her system. “I had been vomiting for almost 12 hours. I looked at my face and just saw a skeleton; I was like a skeleton. Before I was a healthy bouncing size 14 and I had actually reduced to size 10. I am so grateful to this amazing man of God who I had never heard about. He actually saved my life.”

Knowing the importance of thanksgiving and acknowledgement, Mata travelled all the way from Bradford to share her testimony at SCOAN London. Her message to others is very simple: “I am so grateful to the Lord Jesus that He is there for us. Whoever wants to reach out to Him, He is there to help us.”

Thank You, Jesus! What a powerful reminder that distance is truly not a barrier for the Holy Spirit!

Here is the clip through which Mata watched and received her healing. By faith, join T.B. Joshua in prayer, touch the screen and receive your own healing, deliverance and breakthrough!

SCOAN UK Testimony: Sickle Cell Anaemia Healing

I just read this faith-building testimony from The SCOAN London blog about a young man who was miraculously healed of sickle cell anaemia, a condition that tormented him from the very onset of his life…

Since birth. That is how long the young Ghanaian Victor Appiah had been facing the scourge and stigma of sickle cell anaemia. Faced with constant joint pains and an inability to control his bladder, Victor grew up accustomed to pain killers and regular hospital visits, alongside the grim prognosis that this would be a necessity for the rest of his life. His sleep was often rudely disrupted, the pains reaching such excruciating levels that the body simply had to wake up. The future seemed bleak.

However, when one of Victor’s uncles returned from a trip to his homeland Ghana, he came with a message of hope. During his travels, Victor’s uncle had stumbled across Emmanuel TV and was awestruck at the power of God in action he witnessed. He saw incurable sicknesses healed, those oppressed by the devil delivered and remarkable prophetic messages to individuals given by T.B. Joshua. A brief look online revealed there was a SCOAN Branch in London. Hope was restored. Faith soared.

“My name is Victor Ojoa Appiah. I’m from Edmonton, London but originally from Ghana. I was born with sickle cell anaemia. I had lots of pain in my body and my joints – I couldn’t sleep well. My bladder was hurting as well. The urine would just come out, even in public places. I wouldn’t be able to control myself. I’d been to hospital and they gave me lots of medicine but the problem still persisted.”  

The week Victor came to The SCOAN London was the monthly prayer line. “When I received prayer, I felt something touching me. Strength returned.” From that day forward, every sign and symptom of the incurable sickle cell anaemia has left Victor. “Ever since that moment, I’ve not been urinating on myself anymore. I feel healthy now. I am strong and energetic. I’m feeling okay now and I sleep well!” His message to others: “Believe in God. He can do anything.”

Victor’s mother stood joyously next to her son as they testified. A burden that stretched over a decade had been miraculously lifted.“We’ve been through a lot. He’d been having pains all over the body. The pain killers that he had been taking were very strong. He had literally always been in pain, especially in his chest and tummy. This sickle cell also affected his manhood. He would arrive home, his clothes wet with urine. His ill-health really affected me because I could see my son was not developing as he ought.” When prayers were offered in Jesus’ name that Sunday at SCOAN London, the changes were almost instantaneous. “Ever since then, he has never even taken a painkiller – not even a paracetemol! He can now control his urine. There is such a difference and it is so wonderful to behold! Now Victor is healed. I know he is healed because there is no symptom of sickle cell anaemia at all. Thank You, Jesus!”

48 Hours Left To Live: Healed Of Pneumonia And Meningitis

Last week, I heard this simply incredible testimony on Emmanuel TV concerning the New Anointing Water. A baby who was born prematurely and infected with pneumonia, meningitis and adenovirus was given 48 hours to live. But within 3 hours of receiving the Anointing Water, everything changed! Here is a transcript of the wonderful testimony, as heard on Emmanuel TV:

The New Anointing Water

The New Anointing Water ministered to Mr Ali's baby

Emmanuel. God is with us! Our names are Mr and Mrs Fabien Ali. We reside in South Africa. The baby with us here is our son. This baby, at the 7th month of pregnancy experienced distress in his mother’s womb. As a result of that, the doctor had to order an emergency operation to remove him from the womb – because he felt that the baby had a better chance of survival outside than inside the womb. After the baby was removed, a lot of complications set in.

It was discovered that the baby had a lot of infections. He had contracted infections while in the womb after the mother’s water had broken. One of the infections was pneumonia. And then there was another infection which affects the upper respiratory tract – they call it adenovirus. The second one is a bacteria which causes meningitis in premature babies. So the situation was very critical – because every day his health was going down the drain.

The doctor gave up after three weeks and he was now preparing us for the worst. He called us and told us that he doesn’t expect the baby to live more than two days. On hearing that, I decided to call my sister who lives in Lagos here and I told her to go to The SCOAN. I asked my sister in Lagos to get me the Anointing Water and DHL it immediately to South Africa. The Anointing Water arrived within 48 hours by DHL.

DHL Plane

The Anointing Water arrived within 48 hours by DHL

I received the Anointing Water about 10am in the morning. After I received the Anointing Water, I went straight to the hospital and I told the nurse there, ‘You might not understand what I am about to do now, but just give me a chance.’ The nurse obliged. She allowed me and then I ministered the Anointing Water to the baby.

There is this test they do every day to find out how much the bacteria had advanced in his system. Under normal circumstances, that bacteria is supposed to be less than 1 in a human being, but the babies was standing at ‘244’. They told me another test was going to be carried out by 1pm that same day. I ministered the Anointing Water at about 10am.

I decided to hang around the hospital to find out what the result of the test was going to be. My wife’s phone rang and the nurse from the hospital told us that she had good news for us. She said we should come into the hospital. When we came into the hospital, she explained to us that from the test that was carried out, that the particular virus that attacks the upper respiratory tract – they could not find it in the baby any longer! Secondly, the bacteria that was standing at 244, the nurse said that after the test they did, it had come down to 112. Finally, the pneumonia has disappeared from the baby!

Because the baby could not breathe on his own, they had connected a pipe through his throat into his lung in order for the machine to pump oxygen out of his lung and into his lung. It was a very pitiful sight to see the baby connected to all those tubes. So, being that the situation had improved, I asked the doctor, ‘What are we going to do now? Are we still going to leave him with the tube they put through his throat into his lung?’ The doctor told me that he is not in any hurry at all to remove that particular pipe – because he still wants to monitor him. I said, ‘How long?’ He said he would monitor him for two to three weeks. I accepted it like that. The next morning when I came back to the hospital with my wife, I found out that the tube was out from the baby and the drip was no longer on the baby!

I asked them, ‘What happened? Has the doctor changed his mind? Have they decided to move the tube and the drip?’ They said no, that at midnight they found the pipe lying beside the baby. Praise God! They told me the baby removed the pipe and the drip at night. That was after I applied the Anointing Water! I have come here to testify to the whole world concerning the healing power of God in the Anointing Water.

Even before I came here (The SCOAN), I went to the doctor to do a final check. My baby is more than 100% healthy! Children of God, I would like you to join me in giving glory to God Almighty, in Jesus’ name. My baby is healthy, my wife is healthy and everybody in my family are healthy – thanks be to God!

Jesus lives. HE never said, ‘Goodbye.’ I was very encouraged by this testimony and I believe your faith has been strengthened by reading it! Thank God for how HE is using the medium of the New Anointing Water around the world. Thank God for the life and ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua!

Emmanuel TV – The World’s Best Kept Secret?

Just finished watching the live Monday service on Emmanuel TV. The prophetic ministry of Prophet T.B. Joshua and the Wise Men is simply astonishing. The amount of detail revealed to individuals they have never met before, the accuracy of which is immediately confirmed, can only be attributed to God’s work and wisdom. And deliverance/ solution follows. As T.B. Joshua says, “The prophecy contains both question and answer!”

Whenever I watch Emmanuel TV, particularly of recent, I feel that it is one of the world’s best kept secrets! Truly, many people watch Emmanuel TV, particularly across Africa, but I believe what happens on Emmanuel TV every day should be broadcast round the world via all major world media and mediums. That’s how significant it is. It’s practical Christianity in action in a very raw and real way that echoes what we read about in the Gospels of Jesus and the Book of Acts.

People today often view Christianity through a stereotypically negative lens, based on their experiences of those who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk. Hypocrites. However, if more people are exposed to Christian content in line with Emmanuel TV, I believe such perceptions will be challenged and soon change. We need to spread the message!

I recently read this article about Emmanuel TV that echoed my sentiments, written by a Zambian blogger:

In an age where most teens can be found sprawled on the sofa watching comedies, movies, soap-operas or other mind-numbing and reality-dimming programs, Christian television with a growing passionate following is indeed a rare phenomenon. It is in fact an African phenomenon…

Emmanuel TV is an evangelical enigma. Quite frankly, it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Both raw and radical, it’s definitely not your run-of-the-mill religious content. It’s the station of the famous Nigerian Prophet, TB Joshua – one of the most debated and berated African characters in recent history, the storm still raging and the records still writing.

In recent months, Emmanuel TV has captured the African spirit in an almost baffling fashion, celestially arresting their attention and further stirring dispute and fuelling repute. The compelling synergy of unique and captivating Christian content sends countless tens of thousands of Africans scurrying to their television sets every Sunday, choosing to participate in the live service broadcast from The SCOAN (that lasts almost the entire day) than even going to their churches or engaging in social activities. And it’s growing at an astonishing rate both in awareness and acclaim, each week unveiling scores of new avid devotees.

Even the most unlikely and ‘unreligious’ sit in front of the box to watch his prophetic time, fetching out people and telling them their life history with uncanny accuracy and extraordinary effect. It’s a lifetime of experience served live and direct, the amount of specific detail coupled with the shock of the persons concerned bold statements that pre-arrangement has no involvement. A real eye-opener for those scores of sceptics, provoking even the most hardest of atheists to review their stance and ask some fundamental questions.

Prophet Joshua then puts his entire ministry on the line in releasing prophetic messages to nations, oftentimes mentioning specific places and dates. Their consistency in accuracy is clear proofs that such declarations cannot but be a product of divine instruction, direction and revelation. Envious fellows even abuse his repute to spread rumours of prophetic fallacies, word often spreading to such extent that fears and strife are rife in communities and even countries as a result. People fled home, schools closed down and business ground to a halt in a Nigerian state of late because mischievous men peddled a rumour that Pastor Joshua had said lions would come out and attack! Such is the gravity with which people view his prophecies.

Then there are the miracles that seem almost too instant and incredulous to be true, yet with such alarming consistency, widespread testimony and lasting result they just can’t be disregarded. Be it HIV/ AIDs, cancerous sores or those restricted to wheelchairs – testimonies resound unanimous.

Then there comes charity. A ministry where partners can truly see the fruit of their offerings, the evidence of their sacrifice. Multitudes of less-privileged given scholarships, provided with housing and welfare, taken care of on literally a weekly basis. And no monotonous call for funds, no bank details stuck on the screen at every availing instance, no subtle undertone of financial obligation.

What of the demonic deliverances, with human beings previously calm suddenly catapulted to the floor, contorting and contracting with animalistic instincts, groaning and grimacing with venom in their croaky voices? Certainly not for the faint in heart! With self-professed witches openly confessing, repentant robbers forsaking their old ways and unveiling their gruesome tales, broken homes and relationships restored and reunited, it’s a station that defines the term ‘unexpected’.

Exciting as the latest blockbuster, heart-wrenching as the latest thriller – yet edifying, encouraging and experience-injecting all at once, Emmanuel TV is the station of the moment in Africa. In my native Zambia, Emmanuel TV is practically our national station – the people’s station. And each week there’s something new, something fresh, something unique to astound and confound. These weekly events form the basis for lengthy discussions, feeding disagreements and building unlikely unions cutting across tribe, race and even religion. Everyone has their own opinion, many having heard unfounded rumours and reports of TB Joshua’s ‘devilish’ activities before, but time and the sheer consistency of the prophet’s words and works continue to sway more and more people to believe this is not another ‘pick-pocketing’ religious hoax, but a practical living reality.

Yes, it appears we have a 21st century prophet in our midst, greatly misunderstood and gravely underrated, the types and likes of which are seldom seen in our technological and self-serving generation. Not convinced? Have a watch yourself…

Demons Manifest In T.B. Joshua’s Church, London

A number of people have told me about an event that happened yesterday in The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations, London Branch where the new Anointing Water sent by T.B. Joshua was ministered. Many testified that the fire of the Holy Spirit fell and there was a great outpouring of God’s power with many demonic spirits manifesting!! One reader sent me this report concerning the event…

Sunday 3rd April 2011 was a remarkable day for those in attendance at a unique church service in the heart of Central London. The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations London Branch witnessed numerous uncanny demonic manifestations amidst the worshippers during an explosive service that lasted over four hours. A packed auditorium coupled with an overflow extension saw those under satanic possession and oppression receive deliverance after the ministration of ‘Anointing Water’ sent from The SCOAN Headquarters in Lagos, Nigeria, headed by Prophet T.B. Joshua.

The New Anointing Water

The New Anointing Water T.B. Joshua sent to The SCOAN London Branch

The service began with a time of worship, testimony and teaching. Clips of T.B. Joshua explaining about the new Anointing Water were then shown, followed by a small documentary of the extraordinary events that occurred in Accra, Ghana at The SCOAN branch when the Anointing Water was ministered there the previous Sunday. Excitement and expectancy were palpable throughout the crowd. Thereafter, general prayer commenced and the time arose for the Anointing Water to be ministered. The service from that moment on took on another dimension as fire from heaven seemed to descend on the evil spirits within the congregation.

“Why do you people want to kill me,” a demon shrieked from within a woman. “She’s my wife, my lovely wife!” The Anointing Water was ministered as the demon, a spiritual husband, within the woman contorted her body. “I’m going now,” the voice shrieked before she fell crumpled on the floor. Rising up with joy, the woman, originally from Zimbabwe, proceeded to praise God, thanking Him for the deliverance.

“You unclean spirit, I command you to come out,” declared one of The SCOAN evangelists as she ministered the Anointing Water to another woman in the congregation. Folding her hands defiantly, the demon within the woman tried to resist. “I will not leave her,” a hoarse voice from within her spoke out. As the Anointing Water was sprayed, a look of anguish suddenly became apparent on her face and she began to run.

Attempting to leave the church, the demon within her could not stand the fire of God’s power. After a lengthy confrontation, the demon finally bowed and with a shriek left the woman as she fell to the ground. Upon her rising, the woman explained that all she remembered was a voice telling her to run out of the church. She further explained how a strange man had regularly appeared to her in her dreams, and she had experienced setback and disappointment in almost all facets of her life.

TB Joshua sends Anointing Water

It is not the water that heals, but God Himself, since the anointing is done in Jesus' name - T.B. Joshua

As the service progressed, another woman soon fell under the power of God through the Anointing Water Moving her body in a snake-like fashion, she began to crawl on the ground, trying to escape from the ministration of the Anointing Water. After being declared free, the woman explained how she had been seeing snakes tormenting her in the night for many years. “I am now delivered from the spirit of snake,” she happily testified!

The crowd watched on in rapt attention, often bursting into spontaneous applause, as dozens across the auditorium received divine touches after receiving the Anointing Water. Some fell, others shook and still more vomited, but their testimonies thereafter were unanimous – they were healed, delivered and set free in the name of Jesus Christ.

The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations is known for its practical brand of Christianity. Characterised by faith healing, powerful deliverances, prophetic messages, family reconciliations and humanitarian activities, the Sunday Services at The SCOAN, Lagos are hugely popular and viewed by millions through live broadcasts on Emmanuel TV. With international branches in London, Athens, Cape Town and Accra, the ministry continues to grow in awareness and repute. Concerning the Anointing Water, T.B. Joshua says, “It is not the water that heals, but God Himself – since the anointing is done in Jesus’ name.”
