An article from Nigeria’s evening newspaper, The PM News, chronicling the recent Fruit Of The Womb service broadcast live on Emmanuel TV!
Apart from the suspense that the hospitalisation of President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua has continued to generate in the polity, one other great event that took place recently in Lagos was the annual Fruits of the Womb Service at the Synagogue Church of All Nations.
The event, which attracted hundreds of thousands of participants from all over the world, was very special in many regards. First, was the massive testimonies by thousands of happy mothers and fathers who came for the edition of the annual international event that took place at the same venue on December 5, 2008, with various afflictions.
One of the couples, Mr. and Mrs. Marcel Lambert, could not control their joy. In their testimony, they said that until a friend advised them to attend the 2008 edition of the fruit of the womb international service, their marriage of eight years had been greatly threatened by barrenness.
However, the situation got reversed as the wife, who had hitherto to been condemned to strict medication and serious medical schedules, got pregnant earlier in the year, barely a month after their spiritual deliverance at the Synagogue, to amazement of their medical doctor.
The numerous testimonies which began at about 12 noon that day as well as the soul-lifting rendition of popular gospel tunes had continued when suddenly, Prophet T.B. Joshua, came into the service with what turned out to be the miracle mantle, hanging stylishly on his neck. And from that moment, the tempo of everything changed.
With the prophetic phrase, There is a way out for you, he started his words of exhortation: “If there is a way out, however, you have to be positioned for your transformation to the next level and believe that all situations, especially your individual present situation, should be regarded as an opportunity to honour God the father and our Lord Jesus Christ.”
He spoke further: “Whatever you have received or you are going to receive here is not to glorify anyone except Jesus Christ. When I speak the words of prophecy to your life, it is the Lord that makes it happen.”
Concluding, Prophet Joshua declared: “Your past prayers are not lost. I am aware that most of you here today, come from other living churches. The body of Christ is one and there is no condemnation for all us in Jesus Christ. You are very near to the way out of your earthly problems. Your role is to have faith in the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Perhaps the most significant event of the day was the passing around of the miracle mantle earlier worn into the church by Prophet Joshua and which the more than 60,000 participants at this year’s event battled to touch, while those that did were delivered of their ailments, especially women, whose fibroids miraculously came out of them instantly.

The piece elicited many reactions, of which few can be found below:
T. B. Joshua is a man of God. He is a blessing to our generation. For his kind of person to have come from a very corrupt and an disorganized country like Nigeria, shows God is still saying something. His support to the less privileged, healing of the sick through the name of Christ, moulding of shaky marriages and words of wisdom are second to none. A prophet they say is not valued in his own village !
Prophet T. B. Joshua is the man of the moment. Here is a man with absolute faith and submisssion to the finished work of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He is a clear manisfestation and demostration of the biblcal quote that says ‘With God all things are possible’. I am a living witness!
People should know by now that T B Joshua is powerful, humble and wise. He has faced lots of criticism for years, yet, has not condemned the so called pastors who are jealous of his prowess. How many of them can do what he does, how many of them are generous like TB Joshua? All they do is to live flamboyant lives while their congregation lives in abject poverty. If he uses demonic power, he would have been exposed – instead, he is growing from strength to strength. Let the so-called other pastors give to the poor like TB Joshua instead of spending money to buy private jets, building universities that are not meant for their members because of thier poverty. Let us leave the man for God to jugde. He has re-branded Nigeria at the international level. Because of his activities, a lot of people have a different opinion about Nigerians apart from the general sterotype of Nigerian people.
Thank God for the testimonies through the man of God. T.B Joshua. I have not been there before but I do strongly belive he is is from God. I love his Emmanuel TV and watch when ever I have the opportunity to do so. And I encourage every doubter to watch the tv too and see that the Lord is good, and He is still doing good to people. Thanks pastor for your life changing ministry in our great land Nigeria. Peace and love!
I watch Emmanuel TV regularly here in USA, and I want to say that this is marvellous. Those who believe and are willing to partake are going there daily with their problems solved, people go to where they find solution to their problems, and they come back to testify of God’s goodness. No matter what may happen, the doubters will never benefit from this work of God – there is nothing new about this. He that is not sick needs no physician. Those who are in need, no matter what anyone preaches or says will likely not listen – but press forward to recieve the grace and miracles of God. It is not for anyone to judge what kind of power the man uses. He alone will give account of his stewardship to God. But what will it benefit the doubters if they only to get to heaven to discover that the Spirit of God works through the prophet after having denied themselves of the miracles and blessings that would have come to them while on earth. This is not to defend the prophet who I never met in person. In fact I dont even live in Nigeria as of now. Keep on the good work prophet!
I came to know of or hear of TB Joshua when i was given a hotel accomodation at Yenagoa the capital of Bayelsa. I watched him on Emmanuel.TV. As far as i am concerned, God Almighty is using TB Joshua to heal, empower, and win souls for Christ Jesus. How many of todays Pastors can give out freely? I say how many? You that are condeming or judging TB Joshua, remember that your own judgement is waiting for you. For me, he got his power from God. Have you been privileged to watch a documentary when TB Joshua was held by NDLEA and released from jail? Keep watching Emmanuel.TV. And with your faith, you too can recieve your instant healing. I too have received mine. God be with TB Joshua and you all!
