CORONAVIRUS: THERE IS AN ERROR IN ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

tb joshua, scoan, emmauel tv, coronavirus

TB Joshua answers question on the present challenges the world is going through:

QUESTION: Sir, why do we have a terrible time like this?

ANSWER: “You know I am not a politician. I just have to give you as the Spirit gave me because I received this message four days ago from the Holy Spirit. World leaders and scientists know what they are doing; they know what is happening. That is why they keep promoting fear and panic. Before coronavirus, there were deaths – but they never mentioned the number of deaths to us. Now, we begin to count the number of ‘death’ instead of counting the number of ‘life’.

“They know the gravity of the situation. The whole thing has to do with error in advanced technology. You know, I am not a scientist. The whole thing has to do with error, mistake in advanced technology. Now innocent people are dying, especially the elderly. Nothing is worth the blood of innocent souls, innocent people. There is no acceptable excuse for doing this.

“Now we have seen what it means to be locked down in a ‘concentration camp’. This is an opportunity for our world leaders, our scientists to look at the trouble spots in the world, e.g., Syria so that the displaced people can return to their countries. If not, I am seeing God’s anger. Let us abide by what the Bible says in 2 Chronicles 7:14. I am a minister of God; I am not a politician. I should not go too far from my profession. I should not speak what God has not asked me to say. I will leave the rest but I will let you know what is to come.” – TB Joshua

STANDING ON SOLID ROCK!

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN

What is faith? Faith is:

The unshakeable confidence in the reality of the yet unseen world.

The certainty of God’s yet unfulfilled promises.

The evidence of things hoped for.

A firm expectation that God will perform all He has promised to us in Christ Jesus.

Remember, this world was not built out of what is seen, but out of what is unseen (Hebrews 11:3). If God had relied on what is seen, He would have had nothing to build on but what God relied on was faith in Himself – which was unseen. In other words, what is seen today came into being from what is unseen. Faith therefore is a product of the unseen world, which the Bible defines as the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). If we must have a relationship with the unseen world, we must have faith in God because God is unseen. With faith, God created the universe; it was His faith that found expression in the spoken Word which He used in creating everything.

What is unseen is therefore the basis of faith. If you must have faith, you must learn to hear God’s Word (Romans 10:17). Through hearing, belief comes; through believing trust comes; through trusting, confidence is established. However, this process is not automatic but gradual. Those who refuse to take these tiny steps cannot trust God and understand the basic truth about faith. This means, faith is not a feeling. Sometimes people base their spiritual experiences on emotions and feelings. Problems arise when feelings change. When we base our spiritual experiences on feeling, we cannot be constant – that is, we would lack the quality of being stable.

If we don’t take the basic steps, we cannot trust God, in Whom we believe. This is faith that would last. When we stand on this kind of faith, we would be standing on a solid rock. I mean, the unchanging Word of God.

Prophet TB Joshua Praying at Mountain Top

Prophet TB Joshua of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), has prophesied this period we are in as a year of humility. What is the meaning of humility? Why should we be humble? It is very important for the Church, and indeed the world at large, to listen to this prophet. The cumulative effects of the “Fearful Year” he predicted are still with us. The epic of the fearful year is probably the ongoing COVID-19 that is ravaging the entire globe with no respect for any class of person, race or gender. The prophet had been correct all along, after all.

Humility is often characterized as genuine gratitude and lack of arrogance, a modest view of one’s self. It is a critical and continuous emphasis of godliness, as we are called upon to be humble followers of the Lord Christ and trust in the wisdom and salvation of God. Proverbs 22:4 gives us a deeper look into the scriptural meaning of humility. “Humility is the fear of the Lord,” as a very precise definition. Not only does being humble consist of trusting God and following his will, but furthermore fearing the consequences of neglecting God’s commands for truth, love, work ethic, mercy, and beyond. Humility is recognizing the magnificent power of God and the potential retribution He will condemn upon us if we do not aim our purpose towards righteousness. The prophecy for this period may also consist of meekness and a life of service and giving to humanity.

As an example of humility, we may recall the late Mother Teresa who was a teacher in a school in India. All her needs were met in the convent where she lived. However, she chose to give up her life in that convent to live with the poorest of the poor on the streets of Calcutta, taking care of the very sick and dying. She took care of people with whom no one else wanted to bother. The Missionaries of Charity is the name of the religious order Mother Teresa started. Women who join this order give up their possessions and live a life of great simplicity. When they find people dying in the streets and the slums, they take them into their hospitals, clean them up, give them medical care, and if they cannot recover, provide a clean and sanitary place to die with dignity. Similarly, Prophet TB Joshua has a Ministry of Giving as part of SCOAN regular activities around the globe. This was his first activity in many low neighbourhoods in Lagos from the late 1980s to 1990s. In this COVID-19 pandemic era, the Church has been praying and encouraging the public not to fear or panic but to be humble.

The world has indeed been humbled and brought to a low position where nations with high technologies in warfare are helpless before coronavirus. The Church of Christ will remain strong as one body of Christ, but many individual congregations may go underground or merge with others. It is a new revolution and everyone will be humbled, except we manifest the fear of the Lord. The new World Order will emerge after the year of humility to redefine the new international relationships and economic cooperation. No nation will be too strong to fail henceforth but those who rely solely on Jesus Christ will survive. Philippians 2:3-11 says in part, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus. ..”.

As we struggle through in this new era of humility, (because humility is not natural to man in the flesh full of ego), let us remember what the scripture says in 2 Chronicles 7:13-15, especially verse 13 that is very popular. “If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence (COVID-19) among my people; If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attend unto the prayer that is made in this place”. Our prayer is that God will continually put His word and message in the mouth of our prophet and those who are going to teach on this subject of humility until we all become like Christ Jesus.

GOD IS FAITHFUL!

Tb Joshua Ministries,The SCOAN

Daniel 6:19-20 – “At the first light of dawn, the king got up and hurried to the lions’ den. When he came near the den, he called to Daniel in an anguished voice, ‘Daniel, servant of the living God, has your God, whom you serve continually, been able to rescue you from the lions?’ ”

The king called unto Daniel in a loud voice, more of a concerned friend than of an enemy, saying, ‘Daniel, the servant of the Most High God, is your God, whom you serve continually able to rescue you?’ In other words, the king was simply asking Daniel, ‘Is your God able?’ What situation are you in now? Is your God able? If He is, is He faithful to fulfil His promises? If He is faithful, are you really faithful to Him? Certainly our God is powerful and faithful to His faithful servants. This means, it is not a one-sided affair. God has a role to play in my salvation, just as I have a role to play. This should be our guiding principle. This is the kind of relationship approved of God.

We are unfaithful to God; that is why it seems as if He is powerless in the face of our mountain. Many people blame God for unfaithfulness when they should blame themselves for not praying according to His will. Unanswered prayers stand between people and their faith. It is always His will to answer prayer. “Call unto Me, and I will answer you…” (Jeremiah 33:3). This is God’s invitation to pray and His promise to answer. God invites you to pray, to ask. He is always ready to answer. When we are faithful, our God is powerful. This means, it is not a one-sided affair. You have a role to play, just as God has a role to play.

Remember, our Saviour said, ‘Father, it is not as I will, but as You will’ (Luke 22:42). Such was the principle behind Daniel’s faith. This should be the principle behind every Christian’s faith. Daniel had firm confidence in God’s ability to deliver him from death and in death and humbly submitted to His will. It did not matter to him if the Lord did not deliver him. Today, it matters to us if the Lord does not answer our prayer. It did not matter to Daniel if the Lord did not answer his prayer. He knew how much he needed God. He knew he needed God in both good and hard times.

The Bible says in the face of all odds he stood his ground, knowing that God is faithful to those who are faithful to Him. Anytime you encounter trials, take them as an opportunity for you to honour God before men. Anytime he encountered trials, he took them as an opportunity for him to honour God before men. He trusted in the living God. He was convinced that God would be able to deliver him from death and in death. God is powerful to those who are faithful to Him. In this case, God requires our faith in order to reveal His power. He saw his relationship with God as a mutual one. God is faithful to those who are faithful to Him. This was his own guiding principle, knowing that God is not a man that disappoints. He is faithful!

Prophet TB Joshua on Coronavirus and God Remembering Noah

Coronavirus, tb joshua, scoan, faith healing

Coronavirus

It is very hard to imagine any act of nature that would be greater than a worldwide flood that occurred in the time of Noah. The details of the story are in the Bible (Genesis chapters 7-9). I recommend that all Bible students read the story of Noah. The Lord wants us to know what happened and how it happened, and relating this to our daily walk with Him, especially this COVID-19 pandemic era.

Then God remembered Noah and every living thing and all the animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided (Genesis 8:1). At the due time, God sent a wind that blew across the whole earth and caused the floodwaters to begin to recede. This tells us about God’s authority over the forces of nature, over COVID-19, over Ebola, over smallpox, over our finances, our families, our health, over time and seasons. He is God above all.

Prophet TB Joshua, of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations (SCOAN), prophesied recently on COVID-19, especially that the pandemic would end from March 27, 2020. At this very moment, this date he gave with the prophecy, is getting some section of the media confused and thinking that the prophet may not be right after all. But when we read Noah’s experience with the flood, when God remembered him, and when eventually Noah finally stepped out to the dry ground, Prophet TB Joshua may be correct. Whenever Prophet TB Joshua is making a prophecy, we encourage that people should always remember that at those times, he won’t be Mr TB Joshua. So let us always seek God’s interpretations for our circumstances and believe His prophets. We need the knowledge the prophets of God would provide us in this Dark Age when people are desperate and more interested in averting economic ruin rather than believing and obeying God’s word. People of the world prefer swallow solution/prescriptions that have worse side effects than their original problem. This is why panic, fear and shortcuts become normal actions for many.

We don’t know much about Noah’s emotions this period he was alone in the ark but the Bible described him as a man of faith (Hebrew 11:7). With instruction from God, Noah built the ark by faith, went in by faith, endured the ark quarantine time for over a whole year by faith, and came out of the ark courageously by faith. God’s true prophets would speak to us in parables. The press may be critical about the prophet, but they should appreciate him in order to get the best out of him, and building a strong relationship with him. In Noah’s day, the community probably ignored and mocked him. But one day Noah went into the ark with his extended family and animals. Seven days after the rain started and rained for 40 days and 40 nights. The point to note here is that it took some 150 days for the flood to abate after God remembered Noah. Hence we mustn’t lose the significant lesson from Prophet TB Joshua’s prophecy that our flood has started to abate but may need longer time for us to get out of the ark, like in Noah’s days. God may not want us to know the exact day so that we can continue to trust and obey Him. If we know that day the Lord of the vineyard will come, then where is the necessity for faith?

We should learn from the story of Noah that when affliction has done its appointed work, when COVID-19 may have run its appointed period, it will be removed from us. Whether it be sickness or ill fortune or bad circumstances or hateful opposition or even truly bad weather, when God’s purposes have been served, the hard times will go away. So Noah came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives. All the animals and all the creatures (Genesis 8:18-19). But Noah came out gradually, using the Raven test, the Dove test, and eventually, God ordered him out. The rains have stopped but if we come out of the ark too soon we could still be washed away with the floods. Noah was patient and gradual in his approach, depending on instructions from God, and so should we. Stay safe in your homes and ready, like Noah, to build an altar of sacrifice and worship to God at the end.

Coronavirus, tb joshua, scoan, faith healing
Coronavirus

The ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic has not only caused sickness, death, fear and panic around the world but has resulted in the cancellation of several sporting and cultural events, denial of travel Visas between nations, restriction on free movement and assembly. It is like a war in peacetime. A war against invisible microorganisms called coronavirus. The Church of Christ should not be in the dark on what should be done. We need to know the age we are in now and the role of the Church to the world on the fight against this unseen enemy.

The way the world is attempting to stop the exponential spread of COVID-19 disease scientifically is a combination of the following:

(1) Extraordinary restrictions on free movement and assembly, as well as aggressive testing, to interrupt its transmission entirely;

(2) Finding the vaccine that could protect everyone and

(3) The do-nothing approach by just waiting until enough people get the virus and the few survivors developing herd immunity.

All this is the struggle of the natural mind. Hence, as the world struggles with the uncertainty of COVID-19, with all its fear and panic, death and the financial ruin caused by the pandemic. The Church has an incredible opportunity to demonstrate the love of Jesus. This is where Prophet TB Joshua, of the Synagogue, Church of All Nations, (SCOAN) and the Church, in general, need to come in to provide a divine solution based on Jesus’ love for the world.

Already, Prophet TB Joshua and his team in the SCOAN are taking the lead in praying, prophesying and teaching the entire world on this coronavirus. The prayers for rains, that also happened, the constant teaching, the prophecy of this time and encouragements from SCOAN, are worthy of note for all who care to listen. What more can the Church do? For example, the United States of America USA, and many other governments, are rolling out trillions of dollars as bailout and relief bills to stabilized their ruined economies and rescue a few of the COVID-19 victims. Nevertheless, these steps are not going to remove the pandemic but just attempts to save their national economy.

In Luke 11:42 we read Jesus saying, “Woe to you Pharisees, because you give God a tenth of your mint, rue and all other kinds of garden herbs, but you neglect justice and the love of God. You should have practiced the latter without leaving the former undone”. Here the focus is not a warning to the Pharisees of this world on their superficial tithes. The people of the world are more concerned with external appearances than with inner spiritual truth and love. This is why the world will give bailouts and relief bills to create the illusion of significance and only to help their re-election efforts. What God truly asks of us, however, is an inner commitment to the qualities of justice and love. Such are less obvious, less showy and less impressive to others. But without justice and love, our giving and services are going to be meaningless.

Hence like Nicodemus, we have the opportunity to come to Jesus in times like this COVID-19 global pandemic era to look for our salvation and what else we ought to do. The public is asking many questions. For example, whose sin that a pandemic of this scale would be unleashed on every nation? Are we already in the eras described, especially in Revelation 16, where angels will pour out the vials of the wrath of God, one after another, upon the earth to cause great pandemics? The world would need teaching and prophecy of the age and time we are passing through. The Church also has a great task to counsel and rehabilitate victims and survivors of this pandemic beyond what respective governments are currently doing. Prophet TB Joshua has been raised to a position where he can provide revelation and encouragement to this generation.

THE HEART OF PRAYER

The praise and worship session was another opportunity for The SCOAN Choir to call down the host of Heaven, whose presence could be seen in the numerous cases of manifestation and vomiting of evil deposits that occurred during the singing ministration.

The day’s message was given by Prophet Chris, who spoke on the topic “THE HEART OF PRAYER”. He described prayer as “a relationship that exists between God and His children” that should be nurtured at all times, not only “in times of trouble..”

In a catchy turn of phrase, Prophet Chris said, “The heart of prayer is prayer from the heart,” adding that “Prayer of the lips should just be an overflow of the prayer from the heart” and that “Our situation should not dictate the direction of our prayer.” The proof text was taken from Ephesians 6:18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” Prophet Chris also read from 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)—“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Prophet Chris explained that successful prayer always comes from a faith-filled heart that gives no room to offence, bitterness, resentment, revenge, pain of the past and unforgiveness, for which he cited Psalm 66:18. In his closing words, he urged congregants to pray continually in their hearts. “If you know how much you need God, you will realise there is nothing too little to pray over. You should acquire the habit of praying over little things, as well as big things,” he concluded.

After the ministration, satan’s kingdom was put into disarray as the prophetesses and prophets joined the congregation and viewers for the healing, laying of hands and mass prayer sessions..

CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS DEPARTS DURING LIVING WATER SERVICE

For the last five years, Mr Okas Hammed had been using a neck collar because of the problem of cervical spondylosis. “I cannot do any hard work – to carry a small bucket of water is so hard for me,” he said as he made his way to The SCOAN Altar during The Living Water Service of two Mondays ago. A resident of Ogun State, Okas also had an enlarged liver and spotted kidneys. Despite visiting several hospitals and healing homes, he got no reprieve from his condition. After rolling on the Altar in prayer, Okas stood up and parted ways with his neck collar for the pain had vanished instantly. He then moved over to another section of the Altar to minister the Living Water. Okas said his faith had been lifted three weeks ago, when he saw a woman known to him testifying on Emmanuel TV, and that he had decided to visit The SCOAN after watching the testimony. “No matter your situation, the God of possibilities will answer you, if you call upon Him,” he advised listeners and viewers

THE TESTIMONY OF SISTER NATASHA A US WOMAN

“WE DON’T KNOW HOW MUCH WE NEED GOD,” SAYS WOMAN HEALED OF LONG-SIGHTEDNESS AND SHORT-SIGHTEDNESS

For a good 10 years, after suffering a stroke, Ms Natasha Curry, a 57-year-old American, was far-sighted in her right eye and nearsighted in her left eye. This condition made it difficult for eye doctors to recommend glasses for her. She could not read anything in front of her and she constantly had aches in her eyes and head. Two Mondays ago, Natasha attended The SCOAN Living Water Service. After praying on the Altar and ministering the Living Water in her eyes, she was encouraged by her daughter to try and read something. Natasha fetched a copy of the ministration pamphlet and, to her sheer delight and the glory of God, she was able to read without any difficulty. In her testimony last Sunday, she recalled how she had first stumbled on Emmanuel TV while experiencing sciatic nerve pains. She said she had followed Prophet T.B. Joshua’s instructions to pray for dream revelations about one’s life. She did so, and had dreams about participating in the Living Water Service, even though she had known nothing about the service as at that time. “You can’t have her” had been the refrain by the demons that had been appearing in her dreams. Coming from a Christian background, Natasha told her father about her experiences and informed him that she would visit The SCOAN. She did, and has now received the healing she had been awaiting all these years. She advised people to keep love and faith in their heart as a way of receiving God’s blessings. Natasha’s daughter, Shannon, expressed delight at the peace she felt at The SCOAN. Thanking God for delivering her from depression, the younger woman told the church, “Jesus will stick up for you.”

TESTIMONIES

“IT FELT LIKE I HAD A NEW LEG,” SAYS BOY HEALED OF DIFFICULTY IN WALKING

For the last one year, 10-year-old Chris Ngabo, from Burundi, had been suffering from difficulty in walking following an ankle injury he had sustained while playing football. The condition had degenerated into osteochondral lesion grade 4 and doctors had had to recommend a knee brace for him. A very playful boy, Chris had previously suffered allergies and broken his finger, hand and knee, and had been in the operating theatre three times in the past. Surprisingly, he also had high blood sugar at his age. His mother, Josiane, had taken him for treatment of the ankle but he had continued to limp while walking. Doctors then decided that he should have surgery, as his cartilage had weakened. The once-active boy could no longer climb the stairs, ride bicycles, kneel or play football. Troubled by the situation, his mother brought him to The SCOAN. “I command all affliction in your body to leave, in the name of Jesus Christ,” prayed Prophet Racine as he laid an anointed hand on the little boy. Since then, Chris has regained his health and vibrancy to the glory of God Almighty. His blood sugar level has also returned to normal, to the amazement of his doctors. “Trust in God,” Chris advised other children.

“JESUS CHRIST IS THE TRUE HEALER!” LUCIENNE CONFESSES

Owing to osteoarthritis, Mrs Lucienne Esteve, from France, had suffered for three years from difficulty in walking. The 45-year-old had had her knees locked in braces, to help ease her pains. Yet, she could not walk long distances and was unable to do her basic daily duties, including bathing herself. It was in this condition that she had visited The SCOAN a fortnight ago to receive prayers in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. After an anointed touch from Prophetess Anne, Lucienne sprang to her feet, exercising her limbs and glorifying God’s name. “I felt light as soon as the woman of God prayed for me,” she testified last Sunday. Now, she can wear high heels and walk with no difficulty at all. She advised people to have faith in Jesus, the true Healer.

CERVICAL SPONDYLOSIS DEPARTS DURING LIVING WATER SERVICE

For the last five years, Mr Okas Hammed had been using a neck collar because of the problem of cervical spondylosis. “I cannot do any hard work – to carry a small bucket of water is so hard for me,” he said as he made his way to The SCOAN Altar during The Living Water Service of two Mondays ago.

FREED FROM SPIRIT OF PROSTITUTION, HEALED OF CEASED MENSTRUATION

“I am the queen from her village. I destroyed her marriage. I stopped her menstruation. I pushed her to do prostitution. I gave her body pain, chest pain and headaches. I entered her from her village.” Those were the confessions from the household demon in Kate, a Liberian woman who had traversed the continents while she engaged in prostitution. From Ghana to the United Arab Emirates and China to Vietnam and Cambodia, Kate had seen all shades and shapes of men in her bid to fend for her children and see them through school. Whatever business she set up with the proceeds of prostitution always ended up failing. In marriage, she had also failed as her husband had suddenly woken up one morning and walked out of their home after saying she looked like a dog, leaving her with kids to feed. Kate’s problems had actually been the result of the pact that her late parents had with household demons. Kate’s priestess mother had used to feed her children with food served to idols and, in fact, Kate’s original name meant something like ‘dumpsite’, an indication of her parents’ frustration at having lost other babies before her. Kate’s father had vomited his heart after being bitten by a snake while on his other wife’s farm. Afterwards, the children were moved to the Liberian capital, Monrovia. The stubborn demons had followed Kate there, hence their ruining the marriage that she had contracted at age 22. After the Liberian Civil War, Kate moved to Achimota, Ghana on the advice of a friend, who prodded her into prostitution. While doing prostitution, Kate had no home of her own and was always at the mercy of her numerous clients, some of whom took delight in beating her up and refusing to pay her. In one instance, a familiar client took her deep into a forest in Achimota and transformed into different forms right in her presence, causing her to have an out-of-body experience. She would later discover the man had died three months before! Despite that experience, Kate had continued her dirty business and had travelled to the different parts of the world already mentioned. While in Cambodia, Vietnam and the UAE, she began to have persistent dream encounters with a certain figure who later revealed himself as T.B. Joshua, a name that was by then unfamiliar to Kate. The figure had kept advising Kate to quit prostitution. After sharing the dream with a friend, Kate became aware of who the figure was. Her friend then advised her to visit The SCOAN, assuring her that she would get the money for the trip if indeed she had been seeing a true man of God. Miraculously, somebody gave Kate the money for the trip. Meanwhile, for the last seven years, Kate had not been menstruating. In her bid to maximise the use of her body for prostitution, she had got into the habit of trying to block away her menstrual flow by stuffing loads of cotton wool down her private part, leading to the ceased menstruation and the other bodily pains that the demon in her confessed. To the glory of God, Kate’s menses returned after she participated at The SCOAN Living Water Service of two Mondays ago. She is now a new creature—no longer ruled by the desires of the flesh. “The Living Water is real,” Kate said, explaining that she had drunk the water and mentioned the name of her Dubai-based tuberculosis-afflicted sister, who had vomited the evil deposits in her system after the prayer. Kate advised men not to abandon their wives and children. She also advised people to open their hearts to God by “sitting on the right bench in church.” Finally, she encouraged women to see their body as God’s temple.

SAVED FROM THE CLUTCHES OF “GODDESS OF MONEY”

Speaking in French, the evil spirit in Mr Ngozo Mamadou had blurted, “I am the goddess. He has signed a pact with me. I own his life. He wants money.” Those, among others, were some of the revelations concerning the Central African Republic citizen during The SCOAN Living Water Service of last Monday. Coming from a war-torn country, Ngozo had lost both parents in his home country during the war. His sister had died in Cameroon of gunshot wounds sustained during the war and his ailing brother had died in northern Nigeria despite all the expenses that Ngozo had incurred in a bid to save his life at a witch doctor’s home. Distraught and indebted, Ngozo had asked the witch doctor for help with his finances. In response, the witch doctor had initiated him into the cult of a so-called goddess of money, who had demanded either another person’s blood (which she called “mercury”) or Ngozo’s selling of his soul to her. During the riverside initiation ceremony, Ngozo had been made to swallow four eggs. Unwilling to spill blood or give himself to the goddess, Ngozo had tried to kill himself but a Cameroonian woman dissuaded him and asked him to visit The SCOAN. Hesitant because of his different faith, and incapacitated by his poor finances, the young man finally accepted to visit, the woman having promised to pay his fare. While in church last week, Ngozo had vomited four stones as Prophet T.B. Joshua began his ministration during the service. It had all begun when Ngozo started feeling a churning in his stomach, even though he had been constipated for the past three days. Now he no longer has nightmares in which dead people appear and he can sleep peacefully and use the toilet with ease. “I felt that something came out of me,” he recalled about how he had felt during the deliverance session. Ngozo advised people to avoid witch doctors and embrace Jesus Christ.
