The deliverance of militants from the Niger Delta from all contrary spirits was witnessed on January 16th in the Church service of The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations. Three weeks earlier, their Commander, Asoki Jacob had voluntarily surrendered himself for this important deliverance to rescue his being and conscience from being haunted by the spirits of the many people he had assassinated and other atrocities that characterized his life as a militant. Even though he and many of his compatriots had laid down their arms and surrendered to the Federal Government, they were yet to enjoy the ease of conscience as only their physical being was catered for in the accord with the Federal Government. The accord never went deep enough to reach their spiritual being and so, total peace of mind remained perpetually evasive years after the accord. As they put it, they were in constant confrontation, both in the day and in dream, with the spirits of those they had exterminated as the latter were implacable in their quest for vengeance. Consequently, the material comfort and peace of mind which the accord was supposed to bring to them became a mirage. Following the deliverance of Commander Jacob, many of the Ex-militants seeking the same salve, trooped to their Coordinator to present them for deliverance in The SCOAN in order to restore their psyche and sanity skewed by years of hooliganism and gangsterism. It was for this reason that their coordinator brought eight of them for deliverance in the previous Sunday service and a total number of twenty-three in the Church service in focus.
In corroboration of the reminiscences of the militants,Prophet T. B Joshua elaborately ex-rayed the mental trauma that had been trailing the militants following the abdication of wilful destruction of lives and property and a genuine wish on their part to embrace a lifestyle of decency and accountability. According to the Prophet, the militants had been tormented both night and day by the spirits of those they had killed and no amount of reconciliation with the Federal Government could assuage these spirits. Only deliverance in the church could restrain those spirits from tormenting them and consequently restore their natural equanimity to them. In confirmation of this, their commander, Asoki Jacob confessed to the congregation that since his deliverance two weeks earlier, he had become a different human being enjoying total peace of mind shielded, as he became, from all spirits on the path of vengeance. On his part , the urge to resort to further criminality had also been nipped in the bud by the deliverance. His request to the man of God to resume formal education at the age of 39 confirms, according to the prophet, a rapprochement with normalcy and decency in lifestyle. Married with children as Ex-Commander Asoki is, he would find part-time programme beneficial, according to the prophet who then acceded to his request for help. The rest of them who were delivered that day were each given a total sum of N200,000. The gift as explained by the prophet came from the combined effort of the Federal Government, Christians and people in general. He also hinted that those of them who received deliverance that day had been in the Church for two weeks where they had benefited from counselling and exposure to the Bible adding that the twenty three who reported for deliverance that day would be made to benefit from the same scheme before receiving deliverance.
Coordinator Jerry Ogboibini, a worker in an oil company saddled himself with the responsibility of bringing the Ex-militants for deliverance. On their part, the Ex-militants pleaded with the man of God for deliverance as they all in unanimity testified to the mental torture they were undergoing as an aftermath of their past lives of wanton killing and militancy. In support of their plea for deliverance, the man of God averred that the first place to prosper was in our spiritual life and so there was need for a consultant in that area. He added that 90% of the world had this problem because of the non-availability of consultants, that is, people to tell the opinion of God.
All Emmanuel TV Partners held a meeting three days earlier in which they examined, among other issues, the topic of spiritual consultancy. The need for each family in the group to have a spiritual consultant to make the opinion of God known to it was tabled at the end of which they were made to benefit from the spiritual advice of the present five wise men. By the arrangement, each of the families is to be connected to a wise man by phone for God’s opinion on critical issues. Appreciating the new arrangement, the prophet lamented the incursion and obliteration by civilization, of the sacred values of old when men interacted with God. Christianity, he maintained, is more than mere teaching and preaching. It has more to do with practicalizing the power of Jesus.

This done, she soaked her yam seedlings in water mixed with the Anointing Water before going to sow them. One curious incident was that each time she went to sow, it would be followed by a shower of rain in the period which otherwise was generally dry.
