Let these real stories inspire you to love Jesus Christ above all and make His Word the standard for your life!

James Mangiza couldn’t live without smoking. From the tender age of 12, the young South African literally lived in a state of dependency upon cigarettes and a drug he called ‘dagga’, popularly known as marijuana. It had been 20 years of addiction, consuming both time and finances as well as causing his health to spiral steadily downwards. However one day while James was watching Emmanuel TV with his family, Prophet T.B. Joshua began to pray for viewers around the world. It turned out to be a day he would ever remember, a day of radical change.

James Mangiza - delivered from the spirit of smoking in Jesus' name

“I would like to express my gratitude to God for one of the greatest miracles which happened in my life through watching Emmanuel TV. I have been smoking cigarettes and ‘dagga’ since the age of 12 and I am now 32. I would smoke it before and after school every day. I became so addicted as I grew up that I wouldn’t do anything without fist smoking ‘dagga’ and cigarettes. Per day I would smoke ‘dagga’ 5 to 10 times and at least 20 cigarettes. I started watching Emmanuel TV with my family at the end of last year. In March this year (2011), I heard Prophet T.B. Joshua saying the viewers at home should touch the screen and that distance is not a barrier. I touched the screen as he prayed. The next morning when I tried to smoke a normal cigarette I felt like I was taking a paralyzing drug. I just couldn’t smoke it. I waited a few minutes, lit another one and this time nearly fell to the ground as I tried to smoke. From that day until now, it has been three months and I have never touched cigarettes or ‘dagga’. I am completely delivered from that spirit of smoking! Emmanuel! Thank You, Jesus!”

James Mangiza, South Africa

We thank God for delivering James from the spirit of smoking and encourage him to continue staying close to Jesus Christ so that the deliverance he has received will surely stand the test of time. As T.B. Joshua says, “It is not enough to come to Christ for deliverance alone, you must also be ready to follow Him that you may honour Him and recieve His instruction for your life.”

Please share these testimonies with others for the glory of God as, through reading them, many who are facing similar problems and difficulties can be encouraged to commit their situation into the hands of God and receive their own freedom.

If you have a testimony after viewing Emmanuel TV that you would like to be shared through this medium, please submit it via the form on our Emmanuel TV Website or send your testimony in an email to

When you acknowledge God as your Healer, Saviour and Redeemer, He will do it again and again! The best is always yet to come.
