T.B. Joshua, who is also the founder of Christian television network Emmanuel TV, in his message spoke about the Faith and about his disappointment with some religious issues:
"We are making Jesus Christ unpopular because Jesus is the Word and the Spirit but today we have taken Jesus as the Word."
After the cleric delivered player for the sick and infirm, God's miracles started to work immediately: wheelchair bound invalids rose up and walked, a young man brought to the event on a mattress left it behind.
Upon seeing the miracles of divine intervention the grateful crowd could not stop applauding and shouting "Cristo vive" (Christ lives).
Then Joshua offered a mass prayer aimed at getting rid of "unclean spirits", with every word being simultaneously translated into Spanish.
"All spirits of affliction, witchcraft, divination, immorality and lust – I command them out, in the name of Jesus Christ."
Soon people started rolling, screaming, vomiting and writhing uncannily on the floor.
