It was with glad tidings that Esther of The Sunday School welcomed worshippers to the service of October 2, 2022, two days after the first SCOAN Living Water Service under the leadership of Pastor Evelyn Joshua. As the strings praised God’s Holy name, many looked inwards and found plentiful reasons to honour the Almighty. And as The Emmanuel TV Choir took the stage, they sang Jehovah’s praise from song to song, causing heavenly forces to descend into The SCOAN Auditorium and start the work of healing and deliverance.
Pastor Evelyn Joshua, ever grateful to God for His abiding faithfulness in hers and the lives of congregants, said she wished the entire service could be spent thanking God for the marvels of Friday, September 30, 2022, when the people climbed on The SCOAN Altar Of Prayer to take the Living Water. But she noted that it was equally important to stress the fact that “WE ARE GOD’S TEMPLE”.
For that sermon the woman of God read from 1 Corinthians 3:16-18—16 Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? 17 If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.” She said, “We love God because He first loved us.” She then asked, “What are you giving back to God in return for His love?”
Answering the question, she dwelt on what it means to be a worthy representative of Jesus Christ on earth, noting that “we are here to do things as God were the One doing them.” In her concluding words, she asked the people to declare: “I am God’s temple. I have the life of God in me. I have the life of Christ in me. Whatever happens, whatever comes, God is there for me!”
Prayer In The Name That Never Fails!
At the Prayer Line, Pastor Evelyn Joshua prayed: “Father Lord, we are here today waiting in anticipation of what You alone can do in their lives, that is, perfect healing. Father Lord, touch them today, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ! Remove every shame in their lives, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ! Bless them accordingly today, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ! We praise Your name because we know it is done already!”
She soon proceeded to lay hands on the physically ailing and the spiritually troubled. Among the cases were hepatitis B, asthma, congenital disorders, enlargement of the heart, skin problem, stroke, difficulty in breathing and bleeding, drug addiction, swollen body, epilepsy, cancer, goitre and mental disorder, as well as difficulty in walking caused by joint pain, degenerative disc disease and ankle dislocation.
Prayers were also said for pregnant women seeking safe delivery of their babies. “Thank You, Jesus!” was the response from each happy heart.
By the time the evangelists joined the woman of God in laying hands upon the people, the atmosphere in The Arena Of Liberty had become so suffused with the presence of the Holy Ghost that all foul spirits had life snuffed out of them after screaming themselves hoarse from the torment of Holy Ghost Fire. As Mark 16:17 says: “And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues.” Glory be to Jesus Christ for making The SCOAN a place of refuge for the world!
No Barrier To The Force Of The Holy Spirit!
Regardless of whether they had received a touch or not, all congregants participated in the Mass Prayer session. Pastor Evelyn Joshua told them to say: “Father, take more of me and give me more of You—more of Your faithfulness, love, kindness, goodness, humility, mercy.” She also prayed for them: “Every soul that is sick today—we command that sickness out, in the mighty name of Jesus! Be loosed from every infirmity, sickness, affliction! Be loosed! Be healed! Be freed! Be delivered! In the name of Jesus!”
For the viewers Pastor Evelyn Joshua prayed: “I command the dew of the morning into your life, business, marriage, health, career, in the mighty name of Jesus!” She also told them to declare: “My life—reject failure, setback, barrenness and all that is bad, in the mighty name of Jesus!”
Evangelist Ope said to congregants: “Begin to loose yourself from every spirit that torments your life, family, finances, career contrary spirit!”
Evangelist James prayed “That ancestral spirit, family idol: Out! Every spirit causing you sickness, disease in your blood, tendon, fluid—say: Out!”
Evangelist Chisom told congregants to pray: “You sickness, disease, affliction—anywhere you are in my body, organs: Out! Whatever I might have eaten through dreams or from the table of my enemy that is causing me sickness, I say: Out!” He also prayed: “Be healed, in the name of Jesus!”
Evangelist Joseph told congregants: “Command every darkness hindering your breakthrough to catch fire.” He also told them to declare: “My business, career, family—awake!”
In a Mass Prayer clip Prophet TB Joshua prayed: “Every spirit that is not of God, right now begin to declare—leave! Every spirit operating within, without—leave my people, in the name of Jesus! Open your heart to the Spirit of God; He needs your acceptance, acknowledgment…. Break the chain—chain of sickness, affliction, depression, joblessness, nightmares, stagnation! In the mighty name of Jesus Christ!”
