Why should any of you consider it incredible that God raises the dead? (Acts 26:8, NIV.)
Jesus called His twelve disciples to Him and gave them authority to drive out
evil spirits and to cure every kind of disease and sickness (Matt 10:1, NIV).
Jesus said: "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those
who have leprosy, drive out demons" (Matt 10:8, NIV).
Testimony of Iheoma Nwachukwu
(Husband of the deceased, Iheoma Nwamara Iheoma, who was
raised from the dead by David Isaac Ohuoba.)
On 30th June 2005, history was made in the life of Mrs Iheoma Iheoma of Umuagu in Ikeala Ahiaba Autonomous Community Obingwa LGA of Abia State, Nigeria.
On that fateful day, Iheoma was completely dead. But to the Lord be glory. I thank Him for David Isaac Ohuoba of Ohuru, a faithful man of God, who prayed to God for life to be restored, and it was restored according to the word of the Lord.
On 30th June, Iheoma was normal. There was a burial taking place that day at their compound. She was cooking in her kitchen. After some time she started feeling weak, then she started complaining that she didn’t know what was happening to her, but everybody thought that it was just a minor complaint.
She carried on serving the people with the food that she had cooked for the people attending the burial, not knowing that Satan had a big plan through a woman her husband was befriending. This occultic woman (witch) charmed her to death because she wanted to take over her husband.
Sister Chinenye told them that they should take her or carry her to a man of God, because people have testified about him. So her husband and a sister took her to pastor Ohuoba’s house and when he saw her, he began to pray.
As he was praying, the Lord who is using him answered. He prayed for four hours and God answered him; she awoke.
Then in the night, another attack came. Her attackers tied her with a rope and cut her throat with a knife to kill her. She started coughing up blood through her mouth and nose. But to the glory of God she survived the attack. [More about this is in the account overpage.]
I want to use this medium to let the people around us know, and to tell all the people around the world of what God has done through David Isaac of Ohuru.
Iheoma Nwachukwu (husband)
I, her sister, Tina Chinenye Godwin, who sent her to the pastor’s house, and Iheoma’s husband Mr Iheoma Robert, and other people, were present when this thing happened.
We and Pastor Isaac Ohuoba of Uhuru were at 53C Omoba Road, Opposite Zone 6, Aba.
I want to use this opportunity to let people know about him, and man whom God uses mightily to do miracles. I pray that God will give him more anointing and wisdom in his calling, and to give him and his family good health, vision and prosperity in Jesus’ name.
Mrs Tina Chinenye Godwin (sister)
Testimony of David Isaac Ohuoba
I am very happy reporting that the good God has raised His mighty hand on Midnight Supernatural Prayer Ministry once again.
From the 29th June to 1st July 2005, we were having three days and three nights of prayers. On 29th June 2005 we reviewed the truth about speaking in tongues, after we read MM’s booklet Why The Holy Spirit?
The Power in the Gift of Tongues
Biblical and historical proof says that the Pentecostal phenomenon of speaking in tongues creates widespread controversy, which is still evident in modern christendom. Without the knowledge of the truth, which only comes to an honest heart by divine revelation, many have misunderstood the purpose of tongues.
Do not be confused by theories of men. Learn the truth about this important subject.
Initial Evidence of the Holy Spirit Baptism
Isaiah prophesied that "with stammering lips and another tongue", God would speak to this people (Is 28:11).
Very well then, with foreign lips and strange tongues God will speak to this people (Is 28:11, NIV).
In the Great Commission, Jesus said, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; they shall speak with new tongues" (Mark 16:17).
The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going (Jn 3:8, NIV).
As the sound of the wind blowing is the evidence of its presence, so is the sound of speaking in tongues [an] evidence of the Holy Spirit baptism.
When the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance (Acts 2:1-4, NKJV).
The initial evidence of the Holy Spirit upon the 120 disciples was witnessed by devout Jews out of every nation. They said one to another:
Look, are not all these who speak Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each in our own language in which we were born? (Acts 2:7,8, NKJV).
Then Peter preached:
But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:
And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh... (Acts 2:16,17, NKJV, also from Joel 2:28).
Having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear (Acts 2:33, NKJV).
Cornelius and his household spoke in tongues when they were baptized with the Holy Spirit:
...the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also for they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God (Acts 10:45,46).
Peter confirmed that "the Holy Spirit fell upon them as upon us at the beginning" (Acts 11:15).
The believers in Ephesus spoke in tongues when they received the Holy Spirit baptism. When Paul laid hands on them the Holy Spirit came upon them and they spoke in tongues and prophesied (Acts 19:6).
When the Samaritans received the Holy Spirit by the laying on of the apostles’ hands there were miraculous signs like those previously experienced. This prompted Simon the sorcerer to offer money to buy this power that on whomsoever he laid hands, he may receive the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:17-19). [This Simon was probably the one later hailed as the ‘first pope’, not the apostle Peter, who never went to Rome.]
According to the biblical signs that follow believers, there should be no doubt that the Samaritans received the Holy Spirit with the same evidence of speaking in tongues as was evidenced at Pentecost, Caesarea and Ephesus (see Acts 8:5-25).
The apostle Paul was filled with the Spirit and spoke in tongues (Acts 9:17; 1 Cor 14:18). History also proves that speaking in tongues was the most common evidence of the Holy Spirit baptism in the early Church and has not ceased to be a biblical experience among believers today.
Encyclopedia Britannica, 1972 edition, vol 27, p 75: "Tongues speaking manifested itself early in the Christian experience and has not ceased."
At Pentecost, the gift appeared as a sign of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, which marked the character of the earliest Christians. During later church history, glossolalia (speaking in tongues) occurred among mendicant friars of the 13th century, the Little Prophets of Cevennes, the Janesenites, the Irvidngites and others. In modern times glossolalia has been found chiefly among Holiness and Pentecostal groups.
Personal Devotion To God
Tongues are also manifested in a believer’s personal life of prayer and worship. They serve as a means of his secret communication with God in the Spirit. These tongues are not meant to be understood by men. Therefore they need no interpretation.
For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries (1 Cor 14:2, NKJV).
The Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered (Rom 8:26, KJV).
0Paul said "if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is it then? I will pray with my spirit, and I will pray with my understanding also. I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with my under- standing also." (From 1 Cor 14.)
These devotional tongues are for the personal edification of the believer. They are for self encouragement and uplifting of his spirit. Paul said "he that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself" (1 Cor 14:4). So the apostle gladly stated, "I thank my God I speak in tongues more than ye all" (1 Cor 14:18). Praise God.
Demons Must Flee
On 30th June our topic was Demons Must Flee, from Midnight literature entitled Casting Out Demons. We learnt that we should not be fooled by the pride-filled pronounce- ments that your spiritual warfare can take cities for Christ. Casting out demons is only for those who listen to the Spirit.
Ironically many of the great men of God, the elevated evangelical and charismatic leaders of today are not in tune with the Spirit of God. They have become lifted up by pride and presumption, and deceived by false notions of a vaunted agenda that is not biblical but which sounds good to unsuspecting ears. They need to realise that it is not time for Jesus to set up His Kingdom on earth and defeat all demons. And when it is His time, He won’t be needing those evangelists’ help in the physical sense. Jesus’ return as a conquering King is for the future (Rev 19) [but not far away; it is very close], not for now.
God is calling out His chosen ones to come out of this world, to be different, spiritually set apart. They are a little flock (Luke 12:32), persecuted (Jn 15:20), a minority who appear pretty powerless by the world’s reckoning. They are not ‘an army’ raised up to try and change the world, but to change themselves and to be a light in the world.
This should be the main thrust of spiritual warfare! And it is also the main thrust of Jesus’ words about casting out demons.
You can’t cast demons out of others in the world, but you can cast them out of you, and out of others who also want to live by the truths of God. For that cause, He has granted you all power over demonic forces!
So, if you truly want His righteousness (Matt 6:33), you can expel demons, and nothing will harm you (Luke 10:19).
The Roots of Satan’s Strongholds
If there is one thing proud Christians don’t want to know, it is that they could be ‘carriers’ of evil spirits! What could hurt their pride more than that?
And coupled with that pride is fear. What if others find out that they might have had demons dwelling in them? And, worse still, what if they see those demons exposed and put out? These fears and more haunt some believers when they first realise how much power the dark underworld still exerts in the Church.
But Jesus says:
Do not fear, little flock, it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom (Luke 12:32, NKJV).
When you allow Jesus fully into your life – and that takes place in stages, through the course of your spiritual life – He drives out demons by the Spirit of God (Matt 12:28), bringing you true freedom, so that you become a habitation for God.
Praise the Lord, as I was coming back from that day’s programme at Umuagu village, I saw many people running as if there was a war. As I arrived at a nearby village called Umunwankwo, I entered into a store to purchase Peak Millic and Maltina and to find out what was happening.
The storeman told me that they were having a burial ceremony and that a lady fell down and died. Then members of the church ran away about 2 pm. The doctors and nurses that came to the burial examined her and said that she is dead. People started to find their way home.
When I got home about 3.30 pm, I started to prepare my lesson for tomorrow’s programme. The topic of the lesson I was preparing was God’s Word Calls For Doers, scripture reading James 1:16-25. The verse for memory was taken from James 1:21, which says "lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls."
The Aim: to review God’s bountiful benefits to humanity. His provision for spiritual birth and renewal; His word for daily guidance; and His model of constant faithfulness.
That is where I stopped.
A car drove in, carrying a dead woman named Iheoma Nwamara Iheoma. Immediately the car stopped, the lady sounded the horn for help. My daughter and one of the orphans living with me went out and helped them carry her in the prayer house where I was preparing my lesson.
As they laid her on the floor at 4 pm, I looked to Jesus for help. The Spirit of God reminded me of Christ’s travail. This was to indicate the type of prayer I had to offer. The prayers reached a high intensity, like Jesus:
As they came back there was no car available for her. People told them to allow her to stay in "that powerful prayer house" otherwise they would have to send her to the mortuary.
By this time she relapsed and she could not recognise anyone, not even her husband. God told me to continue praying until she is totally healed. I continued praying night and day without going out.
On the 7th July 2005 at night she called me, "Sir I had a dream."
The Angels Bring God’s Healing To Iheoma
She said "After your 1 am - 3 am prayers, two nurses in white clothes came in and dressed my heart where I was wounded. They healed all my bones, touched my legs, and told me to start to walk normally. As they went away, I stood up by myself, which I had not been able to do since 29th June 2005."
God has healed Iheoma Nwamara Iheoma and restored her life. He has brought her back to the land of the living.
The name Iheoma means Goodness; Nwamara means Grace. Praise the living God for His goodness and grace! Hallelujah!

Be not unbelieving, but understand what
the will of the Lord is.
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers,
raise the dead, cast out demons
(Matt 10:8, NKJV).
...Teaching them to observe all things I have
commanded you (Matt 28:20.)
