Young Boy Raised At Midnight
On 5th January 2002, God gave me four dreams. One of those was this: Walking amidst the power of God. I was looking up to some high voltage power lines that we had constructed as part of a huge civil engineering project. In order to get near the power lines, someone had put a few of my scaffold boards alongside the cables, so they could walk along them, close to the power lines [symbol of ‘our’ literature that accesses God’s power]. I was amazed. It was so daring!
Six months later, the dream was fulfilled. An evangelist in Nigeria, David Isaac Ohuoba, wrote to me. He told me of a little boy who had died. His parents came to David asking for help. They knew David had cast demons out of people and delivered them from sicknesses and diseases. He taught people the truths of God’s Word, and there were miraculous signs accompanying his ministry. So, they had faith that something could be done.
They brought the small boy to David, and David prayed. He asked God to restore the boy’s life. And God did just that.
It wasn’t an instant miracle. He persevered for three days until the answer came that he awaited. Like Elijah (1 Kings 17:21) and Elisha (2 Kings 4:32-35), who did not receive immediately, David saw the miracle at the ‘third time’.
He wrote to me telling me more about this incident. The letter was signed by the parents also, verifying what had occurred. Here is that wonderful story (with slight alterations to wording to make it more readily understandable):
Miracle At Midnight
I am very happy to report about a wonderful miracle that has taken place here at Ahiaba. On 15th June 2002, the Sabbath day, during our Sabbath school lesson our topic that day was the Blessing of God. Our verse to remember was taken from Psalm 127:1, "Unless the Lord builds the house, they labour in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchmen stay awake in vain."
Objectives: to note in Psalm 127 the emphasis on the Lord as the motivator and essential factor for our conduct.
Psalm 127 is a fitting psalm for our age: an apt summary is the statement that everything depends on God’s blessing. This short but magnificent psalm, in fact, prescribes the formula for happy homes and restful nights.
Psalm 127 is ascribed to Solomon. Note "His beloved" in verse 2. The Hebrew is the root word from which the name Jeddah – God’s name for Solomon – is formed. The psalm stands in contrast to that great man’s life. Its lessons, as so much of Solomon’s recorded wisdom, were relevant to his life, but were mostly lost on him. Solomon’s building programme became extravagant. His marriages to pagan women, and worship of their heathen gods, brought rebuff and rejection from God.
Consequently, God told Solomon, because he had failed to serve Him as David had, that most of his kingdom would be taken from his descendants (1 Ki 9 & 11:1-13).
After our exploring the subject and responding, then came our conclusion: the wellbeing of an individual, a family, a community, a nation, depends on God’s blessing. Only God can bring fulfilment and prosperity; mere religion cannot, nor can we secure genuine fulfilment on our own. The Lord does it for us.
As we wanted to pray, we saw four women with a two-year-old boy who had just died. He had been rubbed with native medicine. He was laid at my feet. As God planned it, two of my prayer ministry visited me that day from Lagos Adventist Church Maryland and the people that brought the dead boy all were from the SDA church Umuette. The whole church started to pray. [David Isaac is not an SDA.]
After the prayers of the congregation, the prayer group sent him to wash off the native medicine.
We asked the mother what had happened. She revealed to us that two weeks earlier they were in the house of the native doctor, then at 6 am of 15th June 2002 the man told her to carry the boy out because he is dead. As they arrived home, her sister Ijeoma was there waiting for the sad news. Then she carried the boy to the Midnight Supernatural Prayer Ministry [David Isaac’s evangelistic deliverance ministry].
We handed the case over to God, because it is a very big challenge. Many people were watching and wondering, "What will be the outcome of the boy?"
I started telling them about one of Midnight Ministries’ powerful books entitled Testing The Spirits and that the devil
tries to counterfeit healing. He is an astute counterfeiter, but he cannot heal in the true sense of the word. The Bible says dogmatically that God is the Healer (Ex 15:26; Ps 103:3). There is no instance in the Bible where Satan healed anyone. Miracles of healing at Christian meetings and evangelistic campaigns where they occur in the name of Jesus are bona fide miracles of God, done to glorify Jesus. He died to pay the price for our deliverance (Is 53:4-5).
Restoring pure biblical truth is much less exciting than seeing miracles occur in front of your eyes. It’s no wonder that signs and wonders can relegate the restoration of biblical truth to the back row of the church. [David’s love for the purity of God’s truth is second to none. The restoration of God’s truth in the Church is top on his priority list!]
So, at sundown we prayed. Everybody went home. I was there with them for four days. At midnight, I was praying, challenging God on "what people will say over this dead boy that was brought to You", then I referred to what He did to Elisha in the book of 2nd Kings 4:18-32.
Then verse 33 said that he went in therefore, and shut the door upon them twain, and prayed unto the Lord. And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands and he stretched himself upon the child, and the child’s flesh waxed warm [old KJV wording].
As I was praying, challenging God that He is still God, the same today, God restored the life of this boy. Immediately he started crying, and calling for his mother, but he could not walk or stand.
That doesn’t mean you have to be perfect. God is not looking for perfect ‘performance’ from you. But He is looking for a perfect heart. Your motive or intent must be right with Him.
With a pure motive you can have faith in Him. Jesus imparts that to your spirit. And that faith can move the mountain that needs shifting, as this incident illustrates.
According to your faith be it unto you (Matt 9:29, KJV).
Those who dare can do great exploits for God by learning from our materials about walking by faith, etc. This is what the dream meant. David Isaac proved the point, and God answered at midnight as a sign that He backs the written materials we produce. Malcolm B Heap
Man Raised Up From Death!
Testimony of Ishmael N Nwankudu and
Mrs Nwayisunday Queen Nwankudu of Agburuike-Etiti-Ohanze, Obingwa, Nigeria
Ishmael N Nwankudu had been told that medically there was no hope for him.
He would die. He tells his story here.
Praise God! I am highly delighted by our Almighty and Everlasting God for His wonderful and miraculous deed he has done to me, to be alive today!
I woke up early one Saturday morning after having a dream. Part of the hair on my head had been cut off in the dream. I was so amazed and dumbfounded by this dream that I called my wife and told it to her. [The dream portrayed in symbol, the oncoming sickness and loss of vitality.- Editor].
A month later, I developed symptoms of sickness when- ever I woke up in the morning. I went home and told my parents and they took me to somewhere to get help, but the symptoms persisted.
When I went to work, and was on duty, the sickness started again. My director instructed me to go to the company’s hospital for medical treatment. On arrival there, I saw the doctor and the doctor instructed the nurses on duty and recommended the drugs and injection to treat me.
-216I was given a bed as instructed by the Director of my company. They treated me for three days and my director paid the hospital bills in advance, and other things both lab tests and x-rays, etc. But there was no improvement.
Later my wife decided to take me out of hospital to a nearby prayer house. By that time she had gone to many prayer houses. They continually told her that what her hus- band is suffering from is from the yard where we are living.
I had been told that my sickness is incurable and that I would die. So we tried many prayer houses but they proved useless. The sickness only became worse.
0I could not walk properly. I was breathing heavily, but without getting enough oxygen. I kept passing in and out of death. As I 'went', I saw people that had been dead for a long time – people from my country home. [This was when his spirit was out of his body.] Then with my two eyes I tried to turn around and come back.
Later, my wife suggested that they should take me from the prayer house where I was staying to another place because there was no improvement. After that, she went to my in-law's place at Ohuru. When she got there she told the son of my in-laws (my brother) about my illness which is becoming worse. Both of them came where I was staying and suggested taking me to a native doctor at Osaa or other places.
Later the wife of my brother suggested that they take me to the pastor of their church Pastor David Isaac Ohuoba, because she had dreamt about my serious condition, that I died, and that they took me to Pastor Ohuoba’s residence, where my life was given back to me.
So that is what they did. They took me to the Pastor, a man of God. He started calling on the name of Almighty God, praying for a few minutes each hour, and the living and everlasting God heard him.
I have been delivered, praise God! Hallelujah! And today I am alive, praise God in Jesus’ name. To God be the Glory!
Account Confirmed by Isaac Ohuoba
PO Box 623, Aba, Abia State, Nigeria
At 6.pm. as I was going with my wife, Gladness, on our motor-bike, a motorcyclist stopped me on the way. He told me that he had just come from my house where he took his brother, and that there is no hope for his life. The man's name is John Ngbelu. He sent his brother to this ministry for help.
Three weeks before, on 7th November 2003 God revealed in a dream to his wife, Justine Ngbelu, that his brother died and a man told them to send him to Pastor David Ohuoba’s ministry Mnspnpm (Midnight Supernatural Prayer Ministry). There his life would be restored.
After they had gone to many laboratories and native doctors and prayer houses there was no hope for his life. The people told them to carry him back home to die. At that time God reminded sister Justina Ngbelu of her dream, that they should send him to our ministry.
As soon as I saw him in the prayer house I was alarmed, and my wife started to cry out to God... I remembered what is in the book Faith and Healing from Midnight Ministries – the importance of faith – a most important ingredient we need prior to receiving healing.
First, we must come to the Healer. He is waiting for us to come to Him. It is important how we come. If we do not have the right approach, how can we expect to receive? James tells us when we ask, we must not waver, we must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord. He is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does. (James 1:6-8.)
Many people from far and near came to witness the Handiwork of God. People testify and thank God. They have elevated Him for the great miracle.
He was afraid to go back home at first, so he stayed with me until today being 29-11-2003. He went to church with me to tell the people how God has raised him from the dead through the help of the powerful literature Faith and Healing from Midnight Ministries... I praise and thank God.
