RELATIONSHIP BEGINS WITH GOD
In The SCOAN Sunday Service of February 7, 2016, after a time of anointed praise and worship, the congregants received food for their souls from the man of God, Prophet T.B. Joshua. As he dwelt further on certain salient truths about the Christian race, he enlightened the congregation on the attitude required of the true Christian in order to maintain and sustain relationship with their Creator. According to Prophet T.B. Joshua, no Christian should consider themselves out of touch with the harsh reality of trials, attacks and challenges as this forms the basis for their elevation: “As a Christian, take note of this word of exhortation. Anything close to Jesus receives attack. If you are in the place where God wants you to be, the devil will do everything to dislodge you, displace you out of the relationship. It is a sign. When the devil knows you are in a place God wants you, that this is your destiny in your hands, he will fight you. By thinking that you are out of touch, you are giving the devil a chance. I pray you will see that attack you are going through as an object that separates impurities, as a refiner of character, a builder of character.”
POLITICAL VICTORY MADE POSSIBLE AT THE POINT OF SURRENDER
Dr Archibong Henry, a medical doctor from Cross River, Nigeria, passed through hardship after his attempt in 2007 to contest a political office left him bankrupt and stranded at point zero. Visiting The SCOAN, Dr and Mrs Archibong received the Morning Water as well as the Good Morning Sticker and their faith and conviction spurred them to conclude that God would soon turn it around for them. One night, after praying with and ministering the Morning Water, Dr Archibong encountered Prophet T.B. Joshua in his dream, taking him to the front of a large crowd where he was given the flag of Nigeria. He woke up and concluded that he needed to re-contest for political office in the upcoming elections.
With no money in his pocket to run a campaign, he was surprised when well wishers raised money for him to get the nomination form. He then chose to send his campaign messages through social media, which did not cost him a dime. Barely a day to the election, he was asked by his party leaders to step down for another candidate who had the financial muscle to flex himself through the tasking processes of the election. He stepped down but was then suddenly invited to another meeting where he was informed that a mock election had been conducted and he had come out the winner. The party leaders therefore said he would be their nominee in the election, despite the fact that he did not have the necessary money to continue the process.
When the election proper was conducted, he won and the electoral tribunal confirmed his victory, naming him the representative of the Itu Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, National Assembly. The lawmaker advised people never to see distance as a barrier to blessings from God.
GENETIC TRANSFORMATION THROUGH THE MORNING WATER MEDIUM
Miss Chiazoka Chukwuma, from Enugu, Nigeria was born with sickle cell anaemia, a disease that had claimed the lives of eight of her siblings and truncated her secondary school education. She was also addicted to eating sand and charcoal. The pain she experienced was untold. After traversing several places in search of solution, Miss Chukwuma came across Emmanuel TV in her elder sister’s house. Witnessing that cases worse than hers were being tackled at The SCOAN, she decided to come for her healing. She visited and received the Morning Water which she ministered in prayer at home.
Miss Chiazoka was ecstatic to notice that the pain she had been experiencing all over her body was no more. Excited about the development, she told her elder sister and decided to return to the hospital for a medical re-examination. The tests confirmed that her genotype, which was previously SS, had miraculously turned AA. She is no longer a sickle cell patient! Thanking God in company of her elder sister, she advised people to believe in God’s ability to tackle their own situations just as He has done in her case.
A COLOSSAL BREAKTHROUGH
Mr Tonyekiri Biewari from Bayelsa, Nigeria, had dreamt of encountering Prophet T.B. Joshua in his dream. In that dream, the man of God gave him three cubes of sugar and told him, “Son, you are not meant to struggle in life. God has given you everything you need”. After that experience, the young man who was a contractor with an oil company and was expecting a big contract, made up his mind to visit The SCOAN where he received the Morning Water. Getting home, he gathered his family for prayers and ministered the Morning Water. Two days after returning to his base in Bayelsa, he was awarded the contract he had been running after for two years. Having been awarded the contract, Mr Biewari needed funds to execute it and called the prayer warriors at Emmanuel TV for prayer. Seven days later, he was granted a loan of sixty million naira without collateral.
Within six months, he had offset the loan facility he got from the bank and now has over seven oil barges which he rents outs to oil companies. He has also been able to complete five massive homes which had previously been abandoned for many years due to lack of funds. The number of exotic cars in his garage is unimaginable. He has also embraced the spirit of giving and has given out houses and cars to both individuals and churches. Displaying pictorial evidences of his God-inspired achievement since visiting The SCOAN, Mr Biewari, who was accompanied by members of his family, advised people never to give up on God, no matter the situation.
