T.B. Joshua’s Prophetic Ministry

It was in desperation that Mr. Innocent Osuoha and his wife, Patience, rushed to The Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN) on Sunday 13th June 2010. The couple wept in silence, prayerfully clutching the pictures of two young children. Nnaemeka and Chigozie, their only sons, had been kidnapped merely days earlier, with no trace or sign of them since. Having heard countless stories of ritual killing and children sacrificed, the couple came all the way from Cotonou, Benin Republic where they reside, to commit their situation into God’s hands, knowing only divine intervention could prevail.

Their petitions soon attracted God’s attention as Prophet T.B. Joshua sighted Patience in the midst of the crowd and called her out. “Madam, I can see you are grieved,” the prophet began. “But I want to assure you that you will find those children that are missing. As we are talking now, God is releasing them.” Patience had not shown the pictures to the prophet, nor had she told a single soul about their predicament. It was a revelation from above. Tearfully praising God, she explained to the congregation that her two sons had gone out to have a haircut a few days before and had not returned home. Frantic efforts were made to find them and the police authorities were alerted, but all to no avail. The Prophet revealed the children were actually taken for ritual purposes, but authoritatively declared that the kidnappers were already confused and about to release them. The congregation joined Mr and Mrs Osuoha to rejoice at the prophetic declaration, and the duo headed straight home after the service, their fears and anxieties replaced with a strong faith.

A week later on Sunday 20th June 2010, the family returned to The SCOAN to confirm the prophetic declaration with an incredible testimony of God’s protection. Nnaemeka and Chigozie had returned unscathed and untouched! Mrs Patience explained that she was at home with her husband three days after their visit to The SCOAN when her phone rang. “It was my son!  He told us they were safe and asked us to pick them up at the place the kidnappers had abandoned them,” Patience blissfully testified. Her husband immediately traced the location of the children and the family were joyously reconciled.

Narrating his experience, Nnaemeka, 11, said that on the fateful day they were kidnapped, a strange man had walked up to them informing them that he wanted to buy them something. “While we were going with him, I can’t explain what happened to me – I just fell asleep. I woke up the next day discovering that I was in a strange place. I told my brother, ‘It’s like they have kidnapped us’.” Even at his tender age, Nnaemeka and his sibling had strong faith in God and began to pray fervently. “We began to call upon the Lord. We prayed to the Lord for His mercy upon our lives.” He explained that each time they were caught praying, the three kidnappers would mercilessly beat them up, telling them to stop disturbing them with prayers. Adjacent to the small room they were being kept was a door. One day, Nnaemeka summoned courage to open it, hoping to discover some sort of escape route. Within the room was a hideous looking idol, too grotesque for the young boy to describe. He fearfully slammed the door and continued in prayer. “They wanted to use their parts,” T.B. Joshua soberly stated.“It’s not your money or anything they needed but the parts of their body – to use for ritual”.

Nnaemeka continued: “They kept us in the room and didn’t allow us to go outside. Each time we went to the rest room, they would bring us back and lock us inside. They only gave us water and gari to eat.” However, all was not well in the kidnappers’ camp as the two brothers began to hear them arguing violently.“On Wednesday, when I was locked up and praying with my brother, I overheard them fighting and quarrelling among themselves. I heard one of them say, ‘Why did you bring these children here? They keep disturbing us!’ ” Later that day, the captors called Nnaemeka and asked for his dad’s phone number. They then carried the boys to another location, and gave him a phone to speak to his father. Nnaemeka hurriedly told him their location, upon which the kidnappers fled the scene, leaving the two boys alone. The rest is history!

Utilising the opportunity to address the world concerning the gift of prophecy, T.B. Joshua stated: “By what mark may we discover a cheat? If he gives us any sign or foretells something to come and the event is not according to his prophecy, we may come to a conclusion and say, ‘He is not sent of God’ ” He also counselled parents to be careful of where their children go, stating that we live in a danger zone where everyone lies to his neighbour. Chigozie, Nnaemeka’s younger brother also chipped in a few words: “I want to thank God for the prayers of God’s people and the help of T.B. Joshua. If not, I don’t think we would be alive today.” Mr Osuoha expressed his heartfelt appreciation to God for rescuing his two sons.“Today God has put joy into our family. May His name be glorified! I don’t know how to say it, but today – I am full of joy! Thank You, Jesus!”

Prophetic Direction Through Dreams

Edwin Asonganyi, a seaman from Cameroon, shares his testimony about how viewing Emmanuel TV has transformed his life, explaining how Prophet T.B. Joshua has given prophetic direction and revelation to him and his wife on numerous occasions, although he has never physically been to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations…

“Emmanuel! Thank you for this opportunity to share my testimony. This is a great joy for me! I started watching Emmanuel TV in 2008. And ever since I started watching Emmanuel TV, I have seen positive changes in my life.

“In 2009 my wife became pregnant. When she was about a month away from delivery, I had a dream where Prophet T.B. Joshua appeared to me and told me that we should be careful. He told me that somebody will bring a gift to us which is not good but said we should pray and nothing will happen. About two weeks later, a man of God visited us, prayed with us and told us the same thing! And truly, I received a strange gift a few weeks later and nothing happened. My wife delivered safely.

“After the child was 3 months old, he stayed for 7 days without excreting. I called the Emmanuel TV prayer line and they prayed with me with my hand on his stomach. Before 20 minutes, he excreted!

“My family comes from a background where nobody worships God. They usually worship witchdoctors. As a child, I was taken to many of these places for protection. Emmanuel tv has shown me that all the bad dreams I was having – seeing dead people, eating in dream, girls trying to make love with me in dream – are the result of all the witchdoctors I visited. But now, anytime I have a bad dream, I will call the Emmanuel TV team to pray with me and all will be ok!

“My wife is pregnant again now, but I am out of the country – as a seaman. Four days ago she called and told me she had a dream  where see saw herself giving birth to a baby in a wrong position. I encouraged her to be in prayer and emailed the Emmanuel  TV team, asking them for prayer and attaching our photos. The next day she called and told me that Prophet TB Joshua came to her in her dream and told her not to worry. He then prophesied to her in the dream, saying, ‘Before you were very clever, but now you always write exams and fail.’ She said, ‘Yes’. The prophet said, ‘This has been giving you a lot of worry.’ Then the prophet said to her, ‘Don’t worry-  I am seeing you as a nurse, and i see you going out of the country.’

“Prophet T.B. Joshua is a true man of god. He has done many good things in my life. Sometimes when I am praying to God, HE will tell me in my dream with God all things are possible. I have never been to The SCOAN but I believe distance is not a barrier. Always leave your problems to God and you will receive an answer, in Jesus’ name!

“I pray that GOD should make a way for me to visit the SCOAN for my complete deliverance, and I believe this light will also shine in our family! May God continue to increase in the life of  Prophet T.B. Joshua and the Emmanuel TV Team. Thank you for your time, thank you for your patience and thank you for your love. God bless you!”

Thanks for sharing your testimony Edwin. We believe at God’s time, you and your family will have the opportunity to visit The SCOAN. Please keep us updated with what God is doing in your life and career!

If you have been watching Emmanuel TV and have a testimony to share, don’t keep it to yourself! Glorify God and tell the world what HE is doing! You can share your testimony via this blog here. God bless!

TB Joshua Prophecy And Reconciliation

The following is an article from a Nigerian newspaper called ‘The National Life’ explaining the testimony of a man who received a prophecy from Prophet T.B. Joshua during a SCOAN service, and how the prophecy brought transformation and truth to his life and that of his entire community…

The joy of Ubong Enah Willie, a native of Ndoneyo in Onna Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State Nigeria, having completed his house suffered a fatal blow as tragedy struck his family and the team of prayer band invited to dedicate the house.

In the course of dedicating the house, two of Ubong’s children mysteriously dropped dead, while a pastor lapsed into coma, which ultimately took his life. Other members of the prayer band sustained serious injuries. Ubong, a spare part dealer explained that he had managed to make some savings from his meager income with which he purchased the land on which he built the house.

He revealed that he bought the land against prior warning by some men of God that he consulted about the dangers inherent in procuring the land and building on it. Tired of being hounded by landlords, Ubong said he over a period of time succeeded in erecting a 3-bedroom apartment on the said land.

Amidst savouring the joy of having become a landlord, Ubong explained that as a devout Christian, he invited a team of prayer warriors to cleanse the house of demonic and satanic powers and presence. Convinced of their divine anointing to uproot satanic powers, he said the pastors swung into action, binding and casting out demonic forces with him and his family members in attendance.

However, midway into the prayer session, Ubong said the whole exercise changed, and tragedy struck. According to him, he said that just as the prayers were going on, evil spirits invaded the building, shutting the doors and invincibly hitting everybody present with what was like a hammer, killing two of his four children instantly an leaving his wife and others seriously injured.

The pastor who led the prayers, he said died few days after while another member of the prayer team till date has lost sensation in his right hand. In his own words, the embattled Ubong said: “I bought the land with my hard earned money although I was warned against buying it. After the purchase, I went ahead to start building on it. At the end of the day, I was able to put up a 3-bedroom apartment. As a Christian who believes in committing everything into the hands of God, I invited some pastors to come and pray over the house before we move in.

“On the day that they came, my family and I were around. Surprisingly, as the prayer was going on, I just experienced a strange feeling all over me and I felt like I had rashes all over my body. As I was wondering over what was happening, others were also having their own very unpalatable experience. There was no way out for any of us because everywhere was locked. At the end of it all, my two children died immediately. One of the pastors died about three days after”

TB Joshua With The Family

Bassey Monday Udoh, another member of the prayer band explained that their mission to pray over Ubong’s new house was not the first time he would go out for such. Stunned by the bizarre experience, he recounted:” I have always gone out to pray for people in their houses and shops. Ubong’s case wasn’t the first time I went for such but it turned out to be a very terrible experience. While we were saying our prayers, some evil spirits just entered the house hitting me all over the body with something that felt like a hammer. I fell and it continued to hit me. After the medical attention that I received, I have lost feeling in my right hand. I have not been able to do anything with it since then and it still gives me serious pains. Apart from my hand, I have not been able to also reason very well as I used to do before now as a result of that demonic torture.”

Pointing to a particular part of his body, he said, “Look at this side of my head, (he shows it), hair has not grown there since the incident” As if the cruel blows he received were not enough, Ubong, who was still dazed by the incidence that still defies comprehension and still mourning the demise of his children and his beloved pastor, was in for another shock when the community accused him of killing his children and the pastor for money rituals.

Aside the pain of having lost his beloved ones, the community’s allegation festered the sore in Ubong’s heart as he faced threats of various forms, including banished from his fatherland. With his whole world apparently crashing, the saying that failure is an orphan dawned on him.

Despite losing his children and his pastor in a prayer session, Ubong’s faith in his creator remained firm. Without any one to lean on, he solidly believed that his God was capable of setting him free.

With this conviction, he left his home town for the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos. At SCOAN, he recounted that while Prophet T.B. Joshua was prophesying, he mentioned that there was a man present at the service who was alleged of murder and asked such person to come out.

Stunned by the correctness of the prophecy, Ubong said: “I just came here to pray for God to deliver me from my problems and show to my people that I was innocent of the allegation leveled against me. To my surprise, Prophet T.B. Joshua, in the course of his prophecy, narrated everything that happened. He said the person concerned was innocent and asked that such person should come out for prayers. I did and he prayed for me.”

While away in Lagos seeking spiritual help, Ubong’s community back in Onna had gone to consult witch doctors to ascertain his culpability in the ugly incident. Without prior knowledge of Ubong’s visit to the SCOAN, the community head, he said put the oracles’ revelations aside and said he would have to hear from Prophet Joshua before he could accept that Ubong was not responsible for his children and pastor’s death.

Thus, he arranged that a delegate from the community, the pastor’s family members and Ubong visit SCOAN. Prior to that, the late pastor’s son who was said to be violent had threatened to avenge his father’s death by killing Ubong in return. After some appeals from the community, he was said to have rescinded his decision but demanded that Ubong should pay the sum of N4million for his father’s burial.

The Gift

A bloody clash which would have ensued as a result of the crises was averted when the whole party involved in the crises visited Prophet Joshua. Meeting with the late pastor’s family and the community head’s delegate, Prophet Joshua informed that Ubong was innocent of the murder allegation leveled against him. To save the insolvent Ubong from being further hounded because of the huge sum the late pastor’s son demanded for his father’s burial, Prophet Joshua gave the family a sum of N500,000 and went ahead to assure the widow, Comfort Kiddy of his support for the upkeep of the family.

The widow had also requested that Ubong should be responsible for her mother’s burial which she said the late pastor was supposed to do before his untimely death while praying at Ubong’s new house. Propitiated by the Prophet’s intervention and benevolence, the late pastor’s son, Victor said that they were convinced that Ubong was not responsible for his father’s death and assured that peace would reign hence forth.

Prophecy: Day Of Birth Revealed

Another awesome testimony, this time concerning a prophecy given during a SCOAN service to a woman who was 11 months pregnant. T.B. Joshua revealed the exact day she would safely deliver! This article comes from the ‘Africa News’ website… enjoy!

It was an eruption of euphoria in Delta State, Nigeria, as a baby girl was born amidst supernatural circumstances…

Mrs Joy Everbright had carried her pregnancy for 11 months. Awaiting a caesarean operation, necessary due to the wrong position of her baby in the womb, Joy had all but lost hope of delivering her child naturally. However, fearing the doctor’s scalpel and hungry for divine solution, Mrs Everbright boldly made her way to a church in Lagos where miracles were said to happen. She received more than she bargained for.

In the midst of the large crowd at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations on Sunday June 7th 2009, Pastor T.B. Joshua spotted Joy out with a pinpoint prophetic revelation. “There is a woman here – you are due to deliver your baby. This is 11 months. Come out. You have been booked for operation. This is a baby girl.” Evidently shocked, Joy rushed forward. TB Joshua then prayed with her, telling her directly: “You will deliver your baby on Wednesday.”

TB Joshua Prophecy

The next week, Joy returned to the church to share her remarkable testimony. She had safely delivered her baby girl on Wednesday at 9:30am, precisely as the pastor had said. A medical doctor from the Bahamas who was present during the service confirmed, “This is indeed a miracle”, stating that an operation was the only medical option available in such a circumstance. What baffled the crowd most was the pastor’s prediction of the exact day of the baby’s birth, a declaration evidently made under divine influence.

Joshua used the occasion to explain the function of a pastor, saying: “Pastors are sent to utter the deep things of God for the conviction of sin, and for edification and comfort.” He further lamented “ministries of empty talk”, stating that many pastors don’t dabble into the area of prophecy today for fear that it will expose their lack of authenticity and authority. He reminded the congregation of the biblical standard in Deuteronomy 18:22 – “If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken.”

In the same service which was broadcast live on Emmanuel TV, a couple from South Africa shared a similar testimony. Barren for 10 years due to a low sperm count and inverted womb, Mr Pieter and Mrs Gene Van Zyl joyfully explained how prayer from Pastor Joshua had wrought an incredible miracle. Now several months pregnant, Gene spoke of how the pastor had told them two years earlier that she would conceive, and admonished them to hold fast to God and His promises. “God can definitely do it for you” she encouraged the excited crowd, now that the promise had become a reality.

Prophet T.B. Joshua has garnered a reputation for his prophetic prowess on both a personal and international level. Recently, he is said to have prophesied the death of former South Korean President Roh Moo-hyn, the tragic plane crash in New York on Feb 13 and the release of Ingrid Betancourt from the Colombian jungle last year. The President of Ghana, John Evans Atta Mills, has publically acknowledged Joshua’s prophetic ministry, stating he had accurately revealed to him details of his three-round election victory.

Concluding his sermon, Pastor Joshua said: “The prophecies of the prophets of old became signs. Each sign said: ‘These men are from God; their message is true; believe their words.’ ”

I actually found the clip of this prophecy on YouTube! Check it out – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KKM4ty-k6v0

Prophetic time during the live services on Emmanuel TV is probably my favourite time! It is just incredible to see God revealing intricate details about people’s lives to T.B. Joshua and the Five Wise Men, followed by them being delivered and set free.

Once again, we would love to hear your testimonies! Please send them to tbjoshua.testimonies@gmail.com or submit them here and share with the world what God has done in your life!

Rescued From Death

So, here goes! This has to be one of my favourite SCOAN testimonies of all time, hence it being the first one to grace this blog! It just typifies what the ministry at SCOAN and Emmanuel TV are doing – rescuing people from death, both physically and spiritually. The testimony actually comes from The SCOAN newspaper, called ‘Read Us’. Enjoy!

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:

“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.

Smoking Marijuana

We smoked Indian Hemp (marijuana) together

“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.

The desert

We went to the desert to learn how to shoot a gun

“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.

Shadow of prison bars

Condemed to die in a notorious prison

“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.

The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations Auditorium

Welcome to The Synagogue Church - Emmanuel

“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 recognized 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.

TB Joshua Prophecy

Prophecy time with TB Joshua

“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.”

Worshipping God

I will worship God the rest of my life!

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.

Let The Testimonies Begin!

Greetings blogosphere!

First and foremost, a quick introduction to who I am and what I want to acheive with this blog.

Well… I am a young man, brought up in a Christian home in South Africa. I was a regular church-goer, but soon saw that it was mostly tradition and convention. Sure, there were nice ‘feel-good’ sermons. There were great times of moving praise and worship. I met some great people who became good friends.  But no power. No miracles. No testimonies. Just formality.

I soon became disillusioned and grew distant from the church. What I read in the Bible seemed so different to what I was seeing week-in week-out on Sunday. My heart ached.

Then, one fateful day, I stumbled across a television station that soon changed everything. Emmanuel TV. It’s a television station from Nigeria (of all places!), showing the work of God through a man called T.B. Joshua, and his ministry The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN for short).

I was pretty skeptical at first. It was just so surreal. The demon possessed being delivered and manifesting wildly. Pin point prophecies to people revealing extraordinary details about their lives. The sick and afflicted falling under the power of God and rising up well and healed. But in spite of the odd dodgy english, some cheesy editting and frequent repeated programs, what I saw gripped me. It was if the desires of my heart found a resting place. It’s actually difficult to explain, but what I read in the Gospels of Jesus and the Book of Acts were happening before my eyes.

To cut a long story short… – my life has been remarkably changed ever since I started watching Emmanuel TV some time last year. My faith in Christ is soaring. My commitment and resolve to serve Him is stronger than ever. And I am a living witness that Jesus Christ is alive and Hebrews 13:8 is a reality. This is real!

So, why this blog?

Well, in the course of my discussion with people, I have witnessed what I would call a ‘marmite effect’, probably due to the unsavoury rumours people have heard online. People seem to either love this ministry or hate it with a passion!  I have read all sorts of uncomplimentary stories online, but my own experience counter them. And my own testimony mirrors countless others whom I have watched on Emmanuel TV and spoken with in the course of sharing my own.

So,  I want to give people the opportunity to share their testimonies. To tell the world their stories. I have met people who have been healed from incurable diseases just through watching Emmanuel TV, who have been set free from demonic oppression and now have peace and joy in their lives. Such experiences need to be told!

In essence, I believe the world needs to hear what God is doing through this ministry! Why? So that His name is glorified, His fame is spread and people with similar problems may just stumble across this blog and discover there is solution in Jesus Christ

If you have been healed, delivered, blessed – or just seen changes in your life and improvement in your faith since watching Emmanuel TV, visiting SCOAN and being involved in this ministry, I would love to hear from you!

Please get in contact on tbj.testimonies@gmail.com and share with the world what God has done (and is doing) in your life through this wonderful ministry!

And for the records, this is NOT an official blog of SCOAN, but entirely my own initiative. The SCOAN’s blog is thetbjoshuafanclub.wordpress.com

So, let the testimonies begin… !
