Prophet Temitope Joshua, the founder of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN), has released anointing water and a church sticker which he says will be used to fight coronavirus and other ailments ravaging the world.
Prophet Joshua made the declaration in a Facebook post on Friday, January 1 which has so far attracted almost 20,000 comments and over 3,000 shares from his followers and admirers.
The SCOAN founder said he was mandated to release the “faith tools” after a long period at the prayer mountain where he went to seek God’s face on the cure for the afflictions facing the world.
He wrote on the social networking platform:
“This so-called monster, COVID-19, generally known as affliction has three stages. We are getting to the end of the first stage. The second stage will be tougher than the first stage.
“The third stage will be tougher than the second stage. This is why the Lord gave me these faith tools – the new anointing water and the new anointing sticker, tagged ‘Not Mine But God’s Own.’
“The new anointing water – never a sickness it cannot heal, never an affliction it cannot cure, never a problem it cannot solve, in Jesus’ name!”
