Sunday 1st September 2013 was a day to remember in SCOAN UK! From as early as 8am, throngs of people began to gather outside the venue in Central London, some who had been travelling from the four corners of the UK and many more who made the journey from other countries just to attend the Anointing Water Service. The atmosphere of faith and expectancy was palpable as a large queue began to form in the chilly hours of the morning, several hours before the service was even due to start!

By the time the doors were opened, the steady influx of people was nothing short of overwhelming. With the venue holding close to 1000 people quickly filled up, three different overflow points had to be hurriedly arranged. An adjacent hall holding 400 people with a live link to the events of the service was soon flooded with people, as was another hall with close to 200 people, coupled with the foyer area that was further swarming with the excited worshippers. Before the service even had a chance to commence, every possible area where people could gather was occupied and we were physically unable to allow any more people into the venue. For those who arrived late and were unable to enter the service, we do sincerely apologise. Although we were expecting a large crowd, the numbers that arrived exceeded all our expectations!

The service began with a time of praise and worship, the pinnacle being a moving classical rendition of the Lord’s Prayer and the beautiful worship song ‘Agnus Dei’, performances that left much of the crowd teary eyed. The worship was followed by the congregation watching a faith-building message from Prophet T.B. Joshua titled, ‘Overcome your doubt.’ He explained in the message, “God does not mind doubt, as long as you are seeking answers from Him in the midst of that doubt. However, doubt can become sin if it leads you away from God to scepticism, cynicism and hard heartedness.” Faith was lifted and hearts were opened.

Testimony time ensued with two powerful testimonies of people whose lives had been touched in a dramatic way following their coming to The SCOAN and receiving the Anointing Water. First was Alex Jones, a young man from the Isle of Wight who had been suffering from a rare, debilitating and isolating mental condition known as ‘depersonalization disorder’. For six years, he had been practically living alone in his room, completely detached from reality and his once thriving social life. Feeling as if he was not in control of his sensory perceptions, basic tasks such as conversing with people and concentrating on a particular action became burdensome chores. After losing his job as a telecommunications engineer, Alex had been referred to various doctors and psychiatrists in search of a cure. However, he was eventually told that there was nothing more that could be done for him medically after being administered the maximum level of dosage available for the medication he was taking with no seeming improvement or change in symptoms.

Alex Jones Testimony

It was in this condition that Alex stumbled upon a video of Prophet T.B. Joshua on YouTube after doing a general search for deliverance. As he watched clip after clip, something struck a chord within the heart of the young Brit as realisation dawned that his problem was more spiritual than physical and therefore required Divine intervention. Further investigation revealed that SCOAN UK was holding a prayer line service later that month for which he dutifully registered and attended. As Alex was ministered with the Anointing Water, he said he saw light and brightness all around him but it was only when he reached back home that the full extent of the miracle became evident. Praying in his room with the Anointing Sticker, Alex felt a strange sensation within his head, as if someone knocked reality back into place. Purity of vision and clarity of focus was restored in a glorious moment!

The rest is history. For nearly eight months, Alex has been completely free from the mental problem. He has now started work as a film-maker, even receiving international offers of employment and has no more symptoms or signs of the depersonalization disorder. With the full awareness of his doctors, Alex gradually stopped taking his medication to the point where he has not taken any for several months now with no withdrawal symptoms. He advised people to know that when all hope seems lost, there is always hope in Jesus!

The next testimony was that of Mr & Mrs Michael Mortty who had been barren for six long years. Literally two weeks after getting married, Jane Mortty was confirmed to have multiple fibroids, leading to intense pain especially during her menstrual cycle. The Ghanaian-British couple went through a series of medical tests upon which they were informed the only medical option was for them to undergo artificial insemination. The initial attempt appeared to be successful as Jane fell pregnant only to discover six weeks later that she had an early miscarriage. To complicate matters, the miscarriage appeared seemingly trapped in her womb as the foetus refused to come out, leading the doctors to urgently call for her to be operated upon. Having been introduced to Emmanuel TV by her mum in Ghana at this time, Jane decided to seek Divine intervention. Her mum sent her the Anointing Water by post which finally reached her after an address mix up left it in postal limbo for several weeks. The day she ministered the Anointing Water, she bled heavily as the products of conception came out.

Barrenness Testimony

After this traumatic experience, Jane recounted a dream she had. She found herself in a classroom and saw Prophet T.B. Joshua approaching, accompanied by the five wise men. Upon declaring to them that she was seeking for a child, he told her that God would bring the miracle in His own time and did not require any support. She simply had to leave the issue for Him and exercise patience. It was at this point the duo made a mutual decision of faith – to wait for God’s time. They visited The SCOAN in Lagos, Nigeria, received the Anointing Water themselves and continued to minister it in faith, thanking God that His promise of fruitfulness would soon unfold in their lives.

It was several months later that the couple both had dreams on the very same night that signalled the end of their barrenness. Jane saw herself undergoing spiritual deliverance in her dream, waking up with the words, ‘Thank You, Jesus’ on her lips and the realisation that something supernatural had just happened. Michael simultaneously dreamed of a Divine encounter where he was told that God had removed the infertile part of his sperm and would be able to impregnate his wife thereafter. A couple of weeks later, Jane was confirmed to be pregnant! What was a medical impossibility had been made possible by the Almighty God. After a smooth pregnancy, Jane delivered a beautiful baby girl, presenting her to the congregation as ‘Elia’. She advised barren couples never to give in to desperation or defeat but to continue to wait on God, having total trust in His perfect plan.

Mass Prayer Manifestation
Although Prophet T.B. Joshua was not in physical attendance at the meeting, the power of God flowing through him was extremely evident, especially as the congregation engaged in mass prayer led by the prophet via the huge video screen in the auditorium. As the prayer ensued, buoyed by a public declaration of a decision to follow Jesus, God began to move around the auditorium and people seated in the overflow sections, bringing healing and deliverance in a mighty way. Those under demonic attack and bondage began to manifest as the light of God exposed the darkness hiding in their lives and they fell uncontrollably to the ground. People began to vomit out poisonous substances that had been lurking in their systems. Altogether, the palpable presence of God was clearly seen at work in people’s lives.

With an atmosphere of belief cultivated, it was time for the prayer line to begin. As people came forward and the Anointing Water was ministered, there was instantaneous reaction as the evil spirits behind the misfortunes of people were exposed and expelled! “I am Lucifer; he wants to preach and sing for God. I gave him the spirit of lust,” exclaimed a spirit within a young man who was violently reacting to the prayer with the Anointing Water.

“I made her divorce; she used to beat up her husband,” another spirit lividly cackled upon questioning. “I am the queen of the coast; he is supposed to worship me. I caused setback in his career as a lawyer,” were the words spewing forth from another gentleman. When his wife rushed out from the crowd to confirm the terrible setbacks besetting her husband’s career, she was also ministered with the Anointing Water and manifested herself.

A lady painfully struggled forward, aided by a crutch and wearing a huge clinical boot, following a serious ankle injury coupled with an increasingly worsening case of sciatica. As the Anointing Water was ministered to her, she began to shake uncontrollably. A Divine operation was at work! Declared free in Jesus’ name, the elderly lady jumped to her feet, threw aside her crutch, took off her lumbar corset and began to walk unaided! After removing the clinical boot, the worship team burst out in song and she began to dance, joined by the animated crowd who witnessed the whole miracle! Tearfully testifying, she said it was the first time she had walked freely in 18 months!

Healing In Jesus' NameAnother lady was brought forward wearing a neck collar and evidently in serious pain. The Sierra Leonean explained that she was diagnosed with cervical spondylosis almost a year ago and the pains had steadily increased ever since. She was literally living on painkillers and would often wake up at night sobbing in agonising pain. Her Nigerian husband became her constant carer as she was rendered unable to engage in any household chores or work-related assignments. As the Anointing Water was ministered to her, there was no seeming sign of change. However, upon being declared free, she loosened her neck collar, cast it away and began to move her neck! Shocked at her restored mobility, she looked at her husband and burst into tears. “The pain is gone,” was all she could incoherently mumble as joy and wonder met in a miraculous amalgamation.

It was miracle upon miracle as supernatural healing continued to unfold. Another lady limped into the auditorium, heavily relying on a crutch. Her problems were multiple, including severe osteoarthritis and lumbar spondylosis. Having lost her job as a nurse due to her inability to walk at work, she explained the pain was both intense and immense. As the Anointing Water was ministered, the reaction was unexpected! An evil spirit within her growled angrily, stating that it was the cause of her ailment and indeed the afflictions of the entire family. After her deliverance, she rose up without the crutch and began to walk freely! As the cause of her problem had been exposed through deliverance, instant healing followed and she danced in the auditorium, much to the delight of the enthralled crowd.

Everyone in attendance at the service received prayer with the Anointing Water, including those in the overflow sections. The evangelists moved amidst the crowd ministering Anointing Water into bottles of water people had faithfully brought, as well as into their mouths. The service closed at 5:30pm, people returning to their destinations in thanksgiving for the service they had been part of. Indeed, what a God we have to worship; what a Son we have to praise; what a future lies before us! A million thanks are not enough, except to say, ‘Thank You, Jesus!’.

    I was there but even though I wasn’t opportune to get in, I was so happy and blessed with my sticker that was given to me. I returned home with excitement. Thank God for using man God. I want to make this proposal. If a bigger hall could be rented and ask us the christain here to volunteer and get a ticket each for 3 or 5 pounds, so that everyone contribute to come for a better and bigger place like 02 to listen to his word and receive miracles, then is not gonna be a crime for everyone to be comfortable. Since all other areas are small we the christian will be please to together put in something for a bigger place that everyone will fit in and be comfortable to listen to his word….What do you think for the next mass service?

    September 3, 2013 at 6:32 am

      They can’t charge for entry, people must be able to enter and receive their encounter with Jesus for free. Charging entry would cause problems. Trust them to obtain a suitable venue.

      Hi, Monifah I was thinking in the same direction like you. But when I realised that everything in SCOAN are as directed by the Holy Spirit I decided to accept every arrangement in the Church-this does not mean we should stop giving suggestions.When Prophet TB Joshua receives the direction to do as you suggested I’m sure it will be done. Remain blessed in Jesus name and may God continue to help you to hold on to your faith in HIM.I was one of the Helpers at the service.

      I cried to God with tears in the midnight of 12th April 2013,because I was going through stagnation and setback. God directed me to go and pray with Prophet Tb Joshua in the internet. I did immediately as directed. I got more than I thought was possible-breakthrough,deliverance and visitation in dream. Above all I come to truely accept Jesus Christ as my only Lord and Saviour. Thank you Jesus

      SCOAN is the highest demonstration of the work of the Holy Spirit in accordance with the Acts of the Apostles since after the Apostles.When I watch Prophet TB Joshua, I see a Man God prepared as an instrument to carry out his work of deliverance and redemption in Jesus Name. Emmanuel Emmanuel.
