Remember what Prophet T.B. Joshua said about the year 2014: “It is a bridge that connects one to another. If the year is a bridge, what exactly will you expect? It means you have to live modestly. Cut your coat according to your size. It is not a time to walk arrogantly or a time to be proud. A time to cross a bridge is a time to be very careful.”
He continued, “Destiny will work beautifully [in 2014]. Destiny – exactly what God has destined for you. If you are very careful, you will cross the bridge successfully. Please, you have to return back to your destiny. What is the meaning of destiny? It is the way of the Lord. This year, you have to return to the way of the Lord!”

For Hasmita, life was fairly grim. For more years than she could remember she had felt an overwhelming sense of worthlessness, misery and despair. It seemed as if life was unfair as bitter disappointments kept veering its ugly head. At times, she thought that it might be better to leave this world rather than continue in depression. This had affected all areas of her life as financially, business was also plummeting. She had the prospects of debts looming large and felt that this bitter cycle of despair might never end. That was until she had an encounter with Jesus Christ, the Comforter and Restorer and she received her deliverance through the medium of the Anointing Water. Now, hear her tale in her own words:
“Emmanuel! My name is Hasmita Desai. I was born in East Africa, Kenya. I am of Indian origin and I reside in the UK and I am here to give a testimony. I registered on the prayer line because I needed a breakthrough in all areas of my life, especially financially. I was going through depression for many years. I felt very suicidal every now and again, so that is why I came for the prayer line.”
Swallowing tears of joy, Hasmita described a precious dream she had a few days before coming for prayer with the Anointing water: “On the Wednesday before the prayer line, I had a dream. It was a very nice dream and the only thing I remember was that I was in the arms of Jesus. He was holding me and saying to me, “Don’t worry. Everything is going to be okay I am going to be there for you”.
Describing her experience on the prayer line day, Hasmita narrated: “On Sunday on the prayer line day, when the worship time started, I started feeling the presence of God around me and I was feeling shivery, cold and teary. During the mass prayer, while we were praying with Prophet TB Joshua, my stomach started churning. I was feeling as if I wanted to vomit. I was heaving, I was cold and I was teary again. I was praying to God during the mass prayer, I know God you are there for me, you’re going to deliver me. You’re seeing my tears, feeling my pain and I know you are hearing me and you’re going to be there for me.
“When I came down to be ministered to by the Anointing water. As you saw, something within me didn’t like the Anointing Water and I felt as if I wanted to leave the arena; something within me was trying to come out. I wanted to be there but I felt something inside me didn’t want me to be there. When I fell down, I felt as I was surrounded by white light all around me and I knew that I was set free by the grace of God and I was delivered and my past was over!”
Relating her experiences after the prayer, Hasmita stated: “After the prayer line, things started changing in my life. Up till now, physically, the Holy Spirit has been working in my body and also my work picked up, my business picked up. I feel happy, I feel joyful. During the prayer line, I was praying to God because I was also worried about how I was going to pay my mortgage at the end of the month and the bills because I was running short financially and by God’s grace, I did very well a week before Christmas, I was able to pay my mortgage and my bills and I am very happy and joyful now. I feel very happy and anytime any worries come to my head, something tells me, no, just pray to God and He’s there for you and i just remove the worries from my head. I let God take it in His hands.”
Hasmita’s daughter also came forward to testify to the change she had seen in her mother:
“My name is Renal Desai and I live in London as well. Basically since my mum’s come to the prayer line, I’ve seen a massive change in her; we all have at home. Before, she was very reluctant to go out and she was always at home, quite depressed. Since she has come to the prayer line, she is more open to going out and enjoying herself, she’s got her spark back. Work’s picked up and everything’s going really good!”
Hasmita had further testimonies to share:
“The other testimony is about the Anointing Sticker. I always have it in my car and my handbag so it goes with me wherever I go. It was a rainy wet night and I was driving home from work. I was stuck in the traffic and a car came and hit mine really hard from the back. My foot was on the break but the car moved forward and hit the car in front. When I came out and had a look, I was fine and my car on the front and back was not damaged at all. I thank Jesus for His protection through the medium of the Anointing Sticker.”
Testifying to God’s healing power through watching Emmanuel TV and praying with T.B. Joshua, she joyfully testified: “I’ve been watching Emmanuel TV ever since I started coming to SCOAN and in between my son was taken really ill. His right lung had collapsed totally. It was a Friday night. He was admitted to the hospital as an emergency. They did a surgery and he was on oxygen. Five days later, his lung still hadn’t risen. It was a Wednesday and I was going to visit him at the hospital. Before going, my mind was worried about him, so I thought, ‘Let me watch Emmanuel TV and pray with TB Joshua’. I prayed with him mentioning my son’s case in faith and then I went to visit the hospital to see my son. When I got there, they were deciding to do another surgery on Friday and all of a sudden, they decided to readjust his chest strain and see how it goes. On Friday when I called and asked him where I should come to visit him and whether they were moving him to another hospital for the surgery, he said, “Mum, my lung has inflated and I am coming home, you don’t need to come. I thank Jesus for healing my son!”
Referring to the Anointing Water, Hasmita concluded: “God is using this medium to heal everybody. It’s doing miracles and its blessed by God.”
Her advice was encouraging and brought tears to the eyes of many who listened:
“My advice to everybody here today, specially for the people on the prayer line, even otherwise, is God feels your pain, He sees your tears and He hears you when you call Him so call Him and He’ll always be there for you.”
TESTIMONY TIME @ SCOAN LONDON – 13th JANUARY, 2013
No one likes to wake up and detect an unwelcome visitor, a foreign object, an uninvited threat. This was the agitation and discomfort Joyce Durojaiye felt when one morning she woke up and discovered a lump on her neck, a painful swelling she was quite unaccustomed to and most unhappy to experience. This cyst on her thyroid which began to grow meant a surgery which would leave her scarred for life. But Joyce knew that what is impossible with man is truly possible with Christ Jesus. She believed in her heart for God’s intervention in the matter and when she attended the Anointing Water prayer line at SCOAN London, the awaited intervention came.
Hear her testimony in her own words:
“Emmanuel, I thank Jesus for what He has done in my life. My name is Joyce Durojaiye and I live in London. I just woke up one morning in July and saw a big cyst on my neck. It was very swollen at the time. I couldn’t do anything. I couldn’t eat, talk well or even go to work. I went to see my GP and he sent me for a scan and they were going to operate to remove it. If they were to remove it, it would leave a large scar on my neck and I didn’t want the scar. So, I decided to come to The SCOAN prayer line at the next available time.”
Describing the extreme discomfort she had experienced, Joyce went on to explain: “It was really big, very big and they said they needed to remove it. I could touch it but it was very painful if I did.”
Explaining how she had heard of The SCOAN and sought for healing she said: “A friend of mine sent me a video clip to watch of SCOAN Lagos. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t heard of TB Joshua yet. I’d been to many ministries and seen many big men of God but I’d never heard of T.B. Joshua. And even though God is doing so many wonderful miracles here, I was really surprised that I hadn’t heard of him all these years. I decided to watch some more clips and then went on the Emmanuel TV website and started watching Emmanuel TV and I got hooked on it. I found out there was a prayer line in the UK so I made inquiries and in September I attend the prayer line.”
Joyce narrated her experience on the day she received the prayer: “I was quite nervous at first as I did not know what to expect on that day but I knew that with faith, all things are possible. I’d seen many miracles. I’d seen people testify to the goodness of God through this medium of the Anointing Water. When the Anointing Water was ministered on me, I felt strange and started screaming uncontrollably. I screamed so loud and started shaking and then fell down and that was it. I screamed so loud I couldn’t even speak the following day! After the prayer, when I woke up the next day, the cyst was getting smaller and then the next day smaller and after a week it had vanished; it was all gone!”
Showing to the congregation her now smooth neck, she tapped the area which had been so swollen and tender before, joyfully explaining: “I wasn’t able to touch it like this before; it was so painful. Now, everything has gone back to normal, we thank God for that. I no longer need to have an operation and have a scar on my neck for life.”
Referring to the changes in other areas of her life since the prayer, she said: “It’s been fantastic. I was able to go to Nigeria for the first time in 20 years. God has opened doors. I have now started my Masters degree and things are going very well for me and my husband.”
Commenting on the Anointing Water, the medium Jesus had used to set her free, she stated: “This is a very powerful tool and is working for many people around the world; this is fire in a bottle basically. Anything that you hope for, if you use this Anointing Water in faith, and pray in the name of Jesus Christ, it will come to pass.”
Her advice for others, especially those attending the Anointing Water prayer line that day was simple and encouraging: “Have faith! Even if you don’t see anything happen or even scream, God is working behind the scenes and He will do it for every one of us, in Jesus’ name.”
Read this compelling testimony of a couple who experienced the Divine protection of the Lord Jesus Christ when they placed the ‘Anointing Sticker’ on their door. Miracles are still happening today. Jesus lives – He did not say goodbye!
“Emmanuel! Our names are Mr & Mrs Emmanuel Onuorah. We are Nigerians but reside in Benin Republic. We want to testify about the goodness of God in our lives. On Friday 7th December 2012, armed robbers came to our house around 3:30am. They entered into the compound, robbed every flat in that house and took their valuable things away. However, to everybody’s surprise, they didn’t even knock at our door or steal anything – and we had the Anointing Sticker on our door!
“Everybody who knew about the incident was astonished when they saw how everyone else had been robbed except us. Even the police men that came after the robbery were asking us what happened and why such ruthless and notorious robbers didn’t enter our house. We showed them the Anointing Sticker we received last time we came to The SCOAN and testified how God protected us from the attack.
“We want to thank God for what He has done to us through the medium of this Anointing Sticker. Right now, as I am talking to you, all the neighbours in that building – both Muslims and Christians – are asking us to give them the Anointing Sticker one by one. They are even begging me to place it on the gate. In fact, it’s really a reminder for us to remember the message from Prophet T.B. Joshua on that Sticker – ‘Let love lead.’ I pray God would give us the grace to let love lead in our lives. Emmanuel! Indeed, God is with us.”

Sunday December 9th, 2012, Testimony Time At SCOAN UK
Tears of joy flowed freely as Agnes watched how the previous month, the demon causing her addictions, torment, setback and frustration was forced out through the powerful name of Jesus Christ.
Now, hear her story…
A TROUBLED BEGINNING
“My name is Agnes Marufu. I live in Leeds, UK but am originally from Zimbabwe. When I was the age of nine, we were in a church and I started manifesting violently and speaking in a language I did not understand. I was very young and did not know what it was.” Little did the young Agnes know that this surreal experience she could not comprehend was the start of a life of torment and frustration, one that plunged her on a downward spiral of addiction, alcoholism and mental torture.
The little she could conceive was that something was definitely not right. Then in her early teens, she felt a strange tendency to eat soil, after watching her auntie do the same thing. Agnes narrated that “I heard a voice telling me to try it, that it would taste nice”. The tendency turned to a craving which later became an incessant addition. “I couldn’t stop. I would eat it for hours and hours on end”. She noted that she would prefer to eat soil and clay than other food and that a failure to consume the clay and soil would cause extreme agitation and at times aggression.
It was at the age of 19 that the all too prevalent demon within Agnes revealed itself to her in a way many only read about or could scarcely imagine. She explained, “I experienced an attack. I was in the bathroom and looked at the mirror but when I looked, I did not see myself. Instead, I saw a horrible vision. There were people who came with a coffin and they chanted that they wanted to attack me and would not leave without me. It was only I who could see them; no one else could.” To young Agnes, that terrifying picture put her in a state of shock and as she watched a voice within her resonated the all too familiar rasping threat, “It is you – we will kill you!” She cried bitterly and then slumped over, having passed out.
A LIFESTYLE OF ADDICTION
From then on, life became almost like a living death, as each venture, each attempt to make it led to more frustration. One marriage and then another collapsed, and instead of sleep to take away the misery, it increased it; daily she was tormented by nightmares and voices torturing her with unabated threats. The voices kept telling her to eat the soil and clay and later prompted her to eat ice cubes, crunching them daily as if they were biscuits. She would buy large freezers to accommodate the ice cubes and have them at her side, whether day or night. “I scraped them from the freezer. I had to buy more freezers to get them and buy loads from the supermarkets. When I would sit watching TV, I could go on for 3 or 4 hours eating it. I felt relaxed when I was eating it. I became desperate and angry till I could get it. I could not sleep until I finished it.” Describing the clay and soil addiction, she said, “I kept it at work and at home; I took it to bed. I could eat a lunchbox of clay a day. It was nice; I enjoyed it. I sometimes got soil from the garden; it tasted better than food. I would pick it, roast it in a pan and eat it.” The addictions had become a lifestyle.
In an attempt to numb the pain and prompted once again by the sinister suggestions within, Agnes began drinking alcohol. One bottle of wine a day became three and her desire for alcohol became so strong that it controlled every aspect of her life; it became a longing, a craving she was no longer able to suppress or quell. “Many times, I would drink till I lost consciousness. Once I woke up after passing out intoxicated and had to be rushed to the hospital because of fracture on my arm causing multiple chips. They had to do an emergency operation to prevent the bone chips entering my blood stream and they inserted a plate inside my body”.
The problem also affected her work place, a hair salon in Leeds, “I would arrive drunk to work and my clients would smell the alcohol. Everyone else could see it was a problem except me. Everyone else could smell the alcohol but I was oblivious to it”. Agnes’ daughter Michelle who came with her to testify, narrated how, “She would get back from work depressed, down, every single day. I could see that the problem was destroying her life but she didn’t”.
The addictions had also affected her health, causing severe constipation, “I would sometimes have to stay in the bathroom for up to an hour” Agnes related. “Most people that are close to me gave up asking me why. They knew it could cause disease but they had given up on me, as I was unable to stop it”.
DESPERATE FOR CHANGE
Realising the abnormality of her lifestyle and suffering caused to herself and all those around her, Agnes resorted to going to many places in search of rest, relief from inward and outer torment. She narrated the great lengths she had gone to in seeking for a lasting solution: “I even went to Jerusalem twice – I shed tears at the wailing wall, but still nothing changed” Life had become a monotonous misery. She was at her breaking point; she had reached her last bus stop. “I was desperate for deliverance. I knew that after deliverance, a lot of doors would open in my life. I knew Jesus Christ was able to set me free”.
Explaining how she had come into contact with SCOAN and the ministry of T.B. Joshua, she explained that, “I heard through family members in Zimbabwe and friends in the UK. The pastor at the church I go to in Leeds also told me about it. He has visited T.B. Joshua in Lagos before. I’ve been watching a lot on YouTube seeing deliverance. I felt mine was a little problem compared to others that I saw getting delivered. He’s a man of God and I know God is really using him”. Desperate, Agnes determined to come to The SCOAN in London and receive her deliverance and healing. She registered for the Anointing Water prayer line in November, 2012.
Describing her journey, “I finished work at 10pm Saturday night and then went straight to catch the 12am coach to London. I arrived at 5am and then got completely lost for 6 hours! I did not know where I was.” There was indeed opposition to Agnes coming to receive her miracle but with dogged determination, she did not give up. “A feeling told me to give up and go back. I prayed to the God of TB Joshua. I knew that this was my breakthrough and that the devil was trying to take that away from me. After a while, I met a man at Mcdonalds with his children and after I asked him for directions, he offered me a lift and drove me all the way there!” That was it. The contrary spirits within Agnes had made the greatest mistake by allowing her to step foot in the arena of liberty. Laughing and full of joy, Agnes recounted, “I got delivered and that was my day for real!”
It was her day. It was her time to receive and no demon could take that away from her. She was in the prayer line and received an incredible deliverance as the Anointing Water was ministered on her. The evil spirit that had tormented her more than 23 years was forced to speak and tell of how it had destroyed her life before it surrendered to the mighty power of Jesus Christ.
A RADICAL TRANSFORMATION
One month after the deliverance, Agnes testified to the total and complete turnaround in her life. “Miracles are here on earth, miracles are real. I am a new person, a new creation. I no longer even like the smell of alcohol. I do not crave the ice, clay and soil at all! Before I was dreaming eating the ice and soil but I don’t have those dreams anymore. My dreams are clear now – I get shown what will happen the following day, good things. I feel so encouraged. When I got delivered, it was like a key, an opener to every area of my life. I felt like I was living a life of an animal but now I am human.”
This freedom had also affected her business, “My business – all the salons in town are quiet but we are not quiet, we are busy every day. I was tired to wake up early in the morning before but now I open the shop early and close at midnight. A lady got saved when I prayed with her in my salon. I am looking forward to my new business opening in a different town.”
Michelle with tears in her eyes equally spoke of the joy in their relationship since the deliverance, saying, “She has changed a lot. She used to get very depressed. Now we are laughing together and our relationship has changed a lot. Now she listens to me and understands and is not just preoccupied with her own problems. She cares so much about other people. Her mind has opened and it’s absolutely amazing. She has started to do God’s work now.”
DON’T UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF GOD
Agnes advice to others waiting to receive from Jesus was: “You are here. Don’t leave here without your miracle. Sharpen your spirit. Your key to open doors to every barrier and your breakthrough is here today. Don’t underestimate the power of God. Distance is not a barrier and we have children of God here and Prophet TB Joshua is working with them. Just trust God. Your miracle is here and it is today.”
Referring to the medium God had used to deliver her, Agnes said, “This anointing water, it has changed my life. Do not underestimate it. It is a point of contact to your problem, an opener to your problem. Sharpen your spirit and say goodbye to your problems. Through this anointing water in the name of Jesus Christ, tomorrow is your day to come and give a testimony here.”
Do you face similar addictions? Are you being tormented by something or someone you cannot see? Jesus Christ is the solution, the answer to all fundamental issues of life. He is Bread to the hungry, Water to the thirsty, a Roadmap to the lost and He lifts burdens off the backs of the heavy laden. Trust in Him and your situation will change. Believe in Him and your needs will be met, in Jesus’ name!
I’m Bahati Rapundo.
The problem that brought me to SCOAN UK was that I had a spiritual husband ever since my childhood from around the age of 9. I used to have dreams of a man coming to make love with me every night when I slept. When I woke up, I had wet dreams and I didn’t know what was happening to me. I was even scared to talk to people about it because I didn’t understand what was happening.
It started from the age of 9 when I had my first period. After my first period, I started seeing this giant man come to sleep with me almost every night when I dreamt. It affected me both physically and emotionally. Emotionally, I was depressed because I was always thinking what this was that was going on in my life. It was something I had no clue about and who could I share this with?
The culture I come from believes that you are a child at that stage; you cannot even explain to anybody about that kind of thing anyway. It was so embarrassing. So, I had to live with it not knowing where I could get help from.
Physically, I was waking up and finding myself in that situation and I didn’t know how to deal with it. This affected me a lot and as I grew, especially in my relationship with men. Basically, every time I met a person or would get to know a person to the point where I was expecting them to talk about marriage proposals, engagement or anything serious, they would say they were serious, ‘but…’ There was always a ‘but’ at the end of the day and even if we took one or two years to get to know each other, it would end up that from nowhere, he would just decide to dump – that is the word – dump me and cancel whatever we planned. I have not received a marriage proposal in my life.
I have had four strong and serious relationships that I actually knew were set to go into marriage but that did not happen. Every time that it was about to happen, I would be angry, frustrated and having all kinds of arguments or something would just come up to create differences. Then all of a sudden, it just stopped and I was disappointed once again.
It frustrated me even at work in terms of my relationships with other people. I felt like most of the time I wanted to dominate others and push them about. I was always feeling angry with people and any small thing made me sulky or angry. That affected my relationships with every person around me.
Everywhere I went to work, I would work very hard, tirelessly even but there was no kind of appreciation from the people I worked for. For example, I would give my best in every area, I am a teacher by profession but promotion would pass me by. When promotion came at work, they looked for other people and left me. I’d look at myself and start thinking, ‘I am doing everything right, what’s wrong with me? What’s going on?’ I would have no idea of what went wrong and if I went to enquire they would answer, ‘Oh, maybe next time’ and I would just be left where I was. This spirit has caused me disappointment from one area to another, financially, career- wise, love life and in my health.
I came to the Anointing Water Prayer Line at SCOAN UK. Before I came, I was really, really ill and began to think that I wouldn’t be able to attend. But I prayed and said, ‘God, I know You are there and my encounter is today and I have to be there.’ When I reached the prayer line, I prayed, ‘Lord, please pass me not. I am opening my heart. Please touch me. May Your Holy Spirit touch me today.’ I felt this power come upon me, then a voice screeched at me to run away while another voice told me that I was being delivered. The two voices were fighting really loudly in my head. I was covering my ears. It was just too much; I couldn’t handle it.
Then there was the force that felt like fire running all over my body. The feeling and thought that ran through my head was, ‘I can’t stand it; I am burning, I can’t stand it; I am burning.’ Then I fell down and while I was on the floor, there had been this thing fighting. It was being pulled out but it was fighting to stay in. When I hit the floor, I felt the vibrations of how it was jerking within me, holding itself in. Then when the Anointing Water was ministered to me, I felt something rush off me from my body and run away. Then I was still.
Thank God, I was delivered and there was assurance I was delivered. When I got home, I felt so peaceful. I slept and had a dream. I saw a very dark, giant man was lying on a bed seriously ill and looking depressed. I looked at him and he turned from a kind of dark blue shade to thick black in colour. I asked him, ‘What is wrong with you?’ He said, ‘It is you.’ ‘It’s me?’ I asked. He said, ‘Yes. It is you, you are tormenting me.’ I said, ‘Thank Jesus for that.’ I woke up in the night and started praying and said, ‘Thank You, Lord. You have delivered me.’ When I went back to sleep, I found myself in the same dream and when I went back into the room where he was, I saw him dead.
Now, life has changed immensely and in a good way from victory to victory. After that dream, doors started opening up in my marital life. A man I have been in a relationship with for two and a half years, a man who had never even discussed marriage or whom I thought was interested, eventually just asked me, ‘Why don’t we go to your parents and I can meet your mum?’ God gave us the grace. He was so excited; we travelled to see my parents and now he gave me an engagement ring. I am now engaged in case anybody wants to know! You can see the ring on my finger! This is divine because Jesus gave this man to me.
Career-wise victory came too. I have a new job. At the time I came to SCOAN UK for the prayer line, I was going to lose my job at the end of that month. Immediately after the prayer, I got offered another job. I started the job and all was going well. Then, just within the starting period of the job, the owner of the school decided that he wanted to make me another offer to be the deputy of the institution. Praise the Lord!
My advice to everyone is, open up your heart in faith and receive because Jesus is Lord and you will receive what you ask for. Not just what you come to the Anointing Water Prayer line for but much more! So, don’t ever underestimate God!
ATTENTION: Please note that SCOAN UK has no affiliation with nor does it endorse either of the following websites: Watch TB Joshua or Watching TB Joshua (and any other associated sites).
We would like to encourage all believers as the Bible teaches to, ‘Let love lead; we are sons and daughters of love’ (TB Joshua). Let love be uppermost in our hearts. “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love” (1 Corinthians 13:13).
My name is Adewale; I come from Essex, Grays.
I had had asthma for 27 years along with the spirit of depression and anger. They affected me in lots of ways right from when I was small. My parents would not sleep because I could not breathe at night. So many times they had to rush me to hospital to get treatment. It really affected me career wise too; I tried to join the army but they told me because of my history with asthma that I could not join. Even when I was in school, I wouldn’t be able to attend many classes and I have even failed exams as a result of the asthma.
I would have asthma attacks about three times a week. Basically, every day, I had to sleep with my inhaler and I would use it before I slept every single night; it had become like a cell phone to me!
I went to different places for deliverance but nothing happened so I forgot about trying to get free from it and just had to continue living with asthma.
I had two pumps – when it was an emergency the blue pump would help me to start breathing again once the attack had seized me and the brown pump, I used three times a day as standard treatment.
When I was in University, I read philosophy and it affected my faith. From there, I started experiencing a spirit of depression. Philosophy was like a message of hopelessness and I got depressed and angry. The spirit of depression affected me in a weird way because sometimes it would make me cut myself. I would rather feel pain in my body than pain in my mind, so it made me cut myself before it would stop taunting me.
I knew it was a spirit that made me do this because naturally, I wouldn’t want to cut myself. It was not my will. It doesn’t make me look good. I knew something was wrong. I kept wrestling with a voice. I would say, ‘This was wrong, I love God, why should I do this, I am not going to do it’ and it would say, ‘Well if you don’t do it, you are not going to have peace.’
When I cut myself then I would be able to rest. The spirit would not stop until I had started to cut myself or put my hands in fire and other destructive things like that.
Sometimes when I got angry, I would fight and if, for example, I fought with my sister, after the argument, the spirit of guilt would come in. Then through that guilt, this spirit would enter and start saying, ‘Oh you have done this, you have done that. Now you have to cut yourself, you have to pay for what you have done.’ This was how it started. It first came as an angel of light, pretending that it was helping me but at the end of the day, it deceived me. That was how it came upon me so strongly that I could not escape it.
When the spirit caused me to cut myself, it would make me cut myself in places that people would not be able to see in public. I started cutting my wrists and then moved to cut my upper arms and torso under the arm pit.
On my coming to SCOAN UK I had registered for the prayer line but something happened while I was on my way and I ended up coming late. Because of this, I was not able to join the prayer line. At first, I felt a bit sad but I put everything in God’s hands and I wasn’t going to talk or complain I decided I would just sit down and pray in the congregation.
While we were worshipping, I was not cast down, I was not depressed. I started worshipping. While we were praising God, we began to pray with Prophet T.B. Joshua, who was ministering mass prayer via a video feed. During the prayer, I just heard a gentle voice say, ‘Wale you are free.’ My full name is Adewale but everyone knows me as Ade. Wale is a name that not many people know is mine. I don’t even call myself Wale so I knew that it was God. Immediately as I heard that voice, something started moving and coming up in my chest. I started coughing and vomiting and was brought to the front. Some thick substances came out of my mouth while I was on the floor under the influence of the Holy Spirit.
At first, my mindset was that I would pray but not pray hard as I didn’t want to start falling or manifesting as I had seen happening on Emmanuel TV but then I said, ‘Lord, I shouldn’t tell you how to deliver me. You deliver me the way you want to deliver me.’ So, I left everything to God. While I was coughing out those substances, I felt something heavy was lifted off my body.
I started thinking about my beginning, how I had been through so many things and how I had imagined what it was like to be free but it had all been a dream. Many a times I had thought I was going to die. Was this it, was this finally, really happening? Was this my day? Then the anointing water was sprayed on me, I fell down and felt something jump out of my chest.
Some days later, when I was asked how I had been since the prayer line, I then realised I misplaced my inhalers for three weeks; and I hadn’t use them after the prayer! I decided to come to testify and it was only them that I started looking for them and eventually found my inhalers under my sofa. My eyes opened and my deliverance became complete. Ever since that day, I have not used my inhalers; I have been free. I have never had a single sign of asthma again.
Now I am so excited. Before I experienced nightmares, I was always depressed in my dreams. When I was dreaming I would find myself dressing up formally preparing to die so that the next morning, I would not be burden to my sister when she found me. But now, the Bible says he gives His beloved sleep. Nowadays, I sleep and wake up joyfully! I have no more nightmares or depression. I haven’t heard that voice that forced me to hurt myself since I was administered with the Anointing Water. I have no desire or need to cut myself anymore.
I want to advise everyone that distance is not a barrier. Just trust God that wherever you are, the Bible says that the Word of God is close to you. I thought it was all over but God touched me. All you have to do is believe God and leave it all in his hands; He will help you.
KETTIE MANGENA – Healed Through The Anointing Water At SCOAN UK
My name is Kettie Mangena. I live here, in London. What brought me to The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations in London was that I had so many difficulties in my life and I had had asthma since 1992. This was very difficult for me. I had to take medication and I couldn’t eat much. I had to live on this medication everyday, 24/7. If I didn’t take it, I couldn’t even walk one or two steps.
I was given treatment from the hospital and I had to be on it permanently. So, I made sure that I had a lot of it in my house. I used asthma inhalers all the time. When the asthma would attack me when I was walking I would have to spray it. I also had various tablets for the allergies because I had so many I suffered from. I couldn’t use any perfume or any scented bath soaps. If I used such things, I could start sneezing and end up having a severe headache. My eyes would weep; my ears and throat would itch. Life was very difficult.
The asthma and allergies affected my life in many ways over the years. When I had a baby, it was difficult because when I had an asthma attack, I would feel very hot. I couldn’t stand sleeping, sitting or standing for a long time. I would want to take off my clothes and be naked. I couldn’t feed or wash my baby, I couldn’t do anything because the condition I had just kept on going on and on.
At work, it affected me because I sometimes fell down because I was not feeling well. My employers and work collegues couldn’t understand. They would say ‘Why? Why is it all the time that you are not feeling well?’ So, it really affected me at work.
The problem with the allergies even affected me if I went shopping – people go to the shops and try dresses on – I couldn’t try them. If I tried them on in a shop, instantly I would begin to itch all over. The doctors advised me to bathe with plain water and I was told I couldn’t use any kind of lotion. I tried to use sensitive baby lotions but they did not work; my skin would still start itching.
One of my brothers who came to The SCOAN here in London told me about the church. He told me to go and Google it and I did. He called me on Sunday to come but I said, ‘no’. When the phone rang, I turned the phone upside down and ignored it. From that time, I could not sleep even one wink. That was Sunday, Monday, Tuesday. On Wednesday early in the morning because I could not sleep, I called my uncle said, ‘Please I want a prayer’. He said, ‘Hold on’. I thought he was coming back to pray with me. Instead, he said, ‘Do you have a paper and a pen?’ I said, ‘Yes’ and he said, ‘Write S.C.O.A.N’.I thought, ‘Oh my Goodness!
I went to work in the morning. In the evening when I got home, I started watching Emmanuel TV. I saw people praying, some vomiting, some screaming and I thought am I going to do all these things if I go to The SCOAN in London? I was scared. The Sunday I came to SCOAN UK I thought I was going to fall or scream or do something embarrassing. During the service they called Newcomers to come forward for prayer if they would like to be prayed for with the Anointing Water. Fortunately, I didn’t fall but I was wondering, ‘Oh no! Maybe nothing has happened; I am not healed!’
When I got home, I watched Emmanuel TV and I didn’t think anything had happened. On Monday morning I woke up and I had misplaced my asthma inhaler; I couldn’t find it. I went to work but miraculously I did not need to use an inhaler throughout that day. I realised that I could eat properly. I could enjoy I cold drinks and go to the loo like any normal person.
As a result of my allergies I was also allergic to pets. On the Wednesday, I went to work and there were pets on the premise. However, to my surprise when I there the animals didn’t affect me. I had no allergic reaction at all. I decided to stop using my medications because I no longer needed them.
Since being prayed from with the Anointing Water here at SCOAN UK, I have not had any Asthma attacks or allergic reactions. Now, I am just free! My body feels light and I am very, very strong.
To the people who have come here today, I want to tell you that God is here for you. He knew you would be here this day and today is going to be your day! When you are prayed for in Jesus’ name with the Anointing whether you fall or not, whether you feel something or not, it doesn’t something is going to happen to you! Your life will never be the same. I am a living testimony. As for the medication I once used, I don’t need it anymore because I am completely healed. Thank You, Jesus Christ!
