The MIDNIGHT Hour
Jesus used a very appropriate metaphor to alert us to the lateness of this time in God's plan for man – MIDNIGHT! He also declared that a prophetic cry would be sounded.
At midnight a cry was heard, 'Behold, the Bridegroom is coming; go out to meet Him!' (Matt 25:6, NKJV.)
That cry is going out now! It is a prophetic call to awake!
The Church sleeps, unaware of spiritual realities. Various areas of deception hold her in spiritual slumber.
Midnight is a symbol of the unexpected. God does unexpected things to try to alert (wake up) the Church to spiritual truth.
But how few take notice!
The incident which follows is just one instance of many that affirms the closeness of the end of this age and of Jesus' coming. There is so little time left before Jesus comes in power and glory to rule this earth and restore all things to the perfection that God intended at the beginning.
Many others will be raised up from death to confirm the authenticity of the truths that Midnight Ministries presents, and that this call is part of the work of the end-time 'Elijah' (Mal 4:5,6).

David Isaac Ohuoba wrote to me recently to let me know that another person has been raised from the dead. A young pregnant lady died and a friend brought her body to him. She knew that David had prayed and brought other people to life previously, so she had the faith that all was not lost in this instance.
David prayed in tongues for two hours over her and God raised her up. His fuller account is below.
This is now the third such person brought back from death by David, and there are significant reasons why God is doing this. I want to explain, so that you can be in the position to do similar miraculous feats by the power of God.
If you have read the little leaflet Raised From The Dead At Midnight, Part 1 you will know some of David's emphasis. His account begins with these words:
"I am very happy to report that the good God has raised His mighty hand on the evangelical work here in Nigeria through your powerful literature."
There are very few people who would make such a statement, but David knows from experience that he's not overstating it. Others have received revelations from God about the anointing that is on MM literature. He listens to the Spirit of God and has found that as he uses MM literature to teach others, God does remarkable things.
God is proving a point. Isaiah prophesied:
Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing. Now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert (Is 43:18,19).
If you do not know what the road represents and the desert, please read Who Is The End-Time Elijah? which fully explains this symbolism. We are in the days of 'Elijah' NOW, and 'Elijah' is doing His Work. God is moving by His Spirit and great things are coming forth.
Look among the nations and watch [watching has a spiritual meaning, be alert to what God is doing]. Be utterly astounded! For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you (Hab 1:5).
And people don't believe it, true to the prophecy!
People don't believe that MM literature could be any different to the publications of any other ministry. "Why, there are lots of ministries, with loads of books and booklets, and they all contain good things." True – up to a point. And I have no doubt that God has used many of them to a certain extent; some very much so!
But, why has God said in various dreams, visions, angelic visitations, and prophetic words – given to several independent witnesses all abroad – that MM literature contains His blessing, inspiration, and more? That it is 'anointed' by God?
He has made it part of the centrepiece of the last revival in this age, which is beginning now.
I cannot tell you all the reasons why God is working this way. All I can do is repeat His words. To one man, He said about me in a dream: "This is the man I have chosen to restore all things to the Church."
Elijah did it in his day. Why should you be amazed that He would do it again in our day? He prophesied of it through Malachi (Mal 4:5). Yet people don't believe it.
Unbelief is nothing new.
What is new is the manner of God's working and the avenue which He has chosen.
People think the last revival in this age is going to erupt from within the established Church. No, the churches are on their way out. God cannot use a compromised basis for His restoration. He has to start completely anew. If you don't know what I mean by compromised, read God's Church – Whose Authority?
So, if God has anointed MM literature, and guided its compilation, so that it contains all necessary restored truth for the Church prior to Jesus' coming, then He will demonstrate the veracity of such an 'outrageous' claim. And that is the reason why He is raising the dead — to prove to you and to anyone else with an objective open mind, that the literature does indeed contain that restored truth. When it is used to teach others, so that their lives are restored spiritually, new life accompanies it.
What He is doing in the physical parallels what God is doing in the spiritual. In the mouth of two or three witnesses every matter is established (2 Cor 13:1). Three witnesses have now been resurrected!
Dead For Two Hours
This is the account of what occurred, which David Isaac sent me:
I am very happy to report that the good God has raised His mighty hand on the evangelical work here in Nigeria through your powerful literature.
As I told you, we were having 21 days fasting and praying, then on the 28th February 2005, around midnight, as I was teaching people from MM's booklet Why The Devil and Demons? we read:
I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions [symbols for devils or demons], and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven (Luke 10:18-20).
We studied about "an ever-present force", "whether you like to believe it or not, the devil is an ever present reality, a powerful force to be reckoned with!" We understand that, "apart from Jesus Christ, the devil's power is unchallengeable. He is the prince of the power of the air, the ruler of the invisible world which governs the earth (Eph 2:2). You cannot see air. Nor can you see Satan, but he is there! He is the god this world unknowingly worships, and he has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the glory of Christ or understand the sense in spiritual realities (2 Cor 4:4)" (pp 4,5).
"For as long as man has been an occupant of earth, Satan has been here too. (Satan was around long before mankind was formed.) For that reason the earth has seen no rest in all its history from troubles and suffering" (ibid.) in people's lives, from the first man and woman whom God created until today.
Suddenly, a car drove in fast, with its headlights full on, bringing four men and a dead woman. They carried the dead woman into our prayer house and laid her on the floor.
As I was about to say "Carry her out to the mortuary," a lady named Joy Sunny, who had heard about the supernatural ministry through Ishmael N Nwankudu [whom David Isaac raised from the dead earlier] said to me:
"Please, prophet, we know that she is dead. I am the person that told them not to go to the mortuary. 'Let us first go to the man of God to confirm.' Please, I have faith that your God is the living God."
As I was standing looking at her, I heard a voice that said to me, "Don't shrink back. My righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back, I will not be pleased with him. But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved." [The Spirit of God quoting to him from Hebrews 10:38,39.]
God revealed to me that the evil spirit of death was holding her. Then I started to pray in tongues.
As I prayed for two hours, I went off in spirit and saw a cat holding her. I cried out loudly, and the cat made a loud noise and then suddenly released her. The life of this woman was restored as the cat was cast away [the cat represents a demonic form that David saw in the spirit realm by the power of the Spirit of God].
There was a big disturbance in her body which caused the baby to turn inside her at about 3 am. The baby's condition had been bad, so I prayed for God to restore the baby to its normal position which He did immediately. She was with me in prayers [and teaching the truths of God] with her husband and sister Joy, for seven days before she went back home.
According to her, she told me that she had had a problem with an occultic woman in the police station who had put a curse upon her. The woman told her that she would die within 21 days.
On the night of the 28th February as she went to bathe in her bathroom, she said: "I saw an evil naked [power or being or man?], as black as coal with a rod, beating on my neck. I fell unconscious and didn't know what had happened until I saw myself in the house of David Isaac Ohuoba, man of God, whom God used to restore my life. As he was praying in tongues, the demons that were holding me ran away, leaving me alone. I had shouted out to my husband that they are beating me to death. But I am delivered from their grip. Praise God."
People from Bible College Road, who heard the good news, came to witness this miracle of God and I gave them our literature Why Trials? Why Suffering? and others.
Her parents came from a long way away too, waiting for me until I had come back from a trip. They all gave thanks to God. I told them that it is due to God's great love. It is His greatest characteristic.
The Bible says God is love (1 Jn 4:8). All of His other attributes harmonize perfectly with this attribute. God's gracious love for humanity is strongly expressed in Old and New Testaments.
The clearest declaration and strongest proof of His love is His redemption of humanity by giving His only Son, who willingly died for our sins and gave us a command to live a perfect life (Matt 5:48) and receive the gifts of His power.
I am grateful to God who introduced me to MM. The ministry has helped to uplift Midnight Supernatural Prayer Ministry which was buried because of lack of spiritual and physical support. But today, people are receiving miracles, healing and deliverance through the supernatural ministry that God has raised up.
Below is the picture of the woman. Her name is Chidinma Nwaogu. Her husband's name is Nwaogu Emos. They are from Umuehi in Isi ala Ngwa South LGA.
David Isaac Ohuoba
Elijah was raised up to challenge the evils which filled society back then. There was one central core issue which He championed. It was restoration of the knowledge of true worship – how to worship God, how to obey Him – so that people could turn back to the one true God in complete obedience. All the other evils stemmed from that lack of truth. So, he didn't have to campaign against abortion (if there had been such) or prostitution, or sexual deviancy or perversion, or drugs, or any other issue. Elijah took his axe to the trunk of the tree and called for the death of all religion other than that which he promoted, which centred on the truth of the knowledge of the true God.
His was a really radical outcry! He called for death to all false religion. That's something that is not acceptable in our 'tolerant' humanistic society today. And he challenged others to match 'his' miracles that demonstrated the authority he had from God to call for such reformation.
You know the story. He gathered all the false prophets to Mount Carmel for a public showdown. He would call fire down from heaven in support of his claim to be the prophet of God with the latest announcement from Him. And the fire fell.
Elijah was vindicated. But the restoration of truth that he hoped would follow it, did not. People drifted back into old sinful ways. The same is true today, people don't want this restoration. It is not welcome.
The 'fire' of God we call down from heaven today raises the dead and performs other remarkable miracles of deliverance and healing. It brings revelation too, in dreams, visions and prophesying. That is His affidavit of truth.
"But others have done such things, too, even raising the dead. Yet they did not hold to the truth you bring," you may say. That is true. But there is one difference. The people raised from the dead in the past have been those who had recently died. God is now going to restore those who have been dead for a long time – for years!
'Elijah' will perform his task! But as I said, the truths we bring are rejected at EVERY turn. Like Elijah's message, 'ours' is here to restore the Way of God to the people.
God's question to you is: "Do you want it?" Get ready to stand before Jesus, sincere and blameless.
