RAISED From the DEAD At Midnight
Raised Up From Death!
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
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
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
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.
We started praying day and night with
your wonder books Faith and Healing, Listening To God, and Witnessing For
Christ. We did 3 nights and 3 days. Then this boy started to walk on his
own. Praise God! Normal blood pressure was restored and we discovered that
the boy was not seeing with his eyes. Then I read Luke 18:35-41. Verse 42
said, “And Jesus said unto him, ‘Receive thy sight: thy faith hath saved
thee.’ And immediately he received his sight.”
People, when they saw it happen here,
gave praise to God. This miracle was covered with a photograph as I was
giving back the boy to his mother. Praise to God.

Countersigned: Eberechi Dick (father).
Countersigned: Uchechi Dick (mother).
This miracle occurred on 22nd June
2002, the Sabbath day.
The little boy’s name is Chimereucheya
Dick. He is only 2 years old. Chimereucheya means God does His wish. The
father’s name means God’s mercy, and the mother’s name means God’s will.
It’s God’s will to show mercy, and in
this instance ‘God did His wish’. The miracle is a living testimony to God’s
love and power.
Of course, not everyone receives,
because there are conditions to be fulfilled. You can’t have evil motives in
your heart and expect to receive from God. He answers the prayers of the
righteous (Jas 5:16).
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.

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.]
A month later, I developed symptoms of
sickness whenever 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
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.
I 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 husband 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.
I 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
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
I have been delivered, praise God!
Hallelujah! And today I am alive, praise God in Jesus’ name. To God be the

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
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
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
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.)
David Isaac Ohuoba with Ishmael
Nwankudu, grateful for God's power & grace, expounded through Midnight
As I was ministering to his people who
were crying, I told them "You must believe. What must we believe?" The
elderly mother replied, "Believe that God can heal him." They all said,
"Yes, we believe..."
And notice what Mark recorded. These
were Jesus' words. They show us why He was such a successful channel of
God’s healing love.
"If anyone says to this mountain, go
throw yourself into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart but believes
that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore, I tell
you whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and
it will be yours" (Mark 11:23-24).
This strong faith is a gift from God.
That is why we need to come to Him to have it.
As we started praying, I was moved to
pray in Tongues. In the great commission Jesus said: "And these signs shall
follow them that believe, they shall speak with new tongues" (Mk 16:17).
I repeated to God about Peter’s
mother-in-law in Matthew 8:14-17, who was healed; a paralysed man in Matt
9:2-8; and the two blind men in Matt 9:27-31.
We held hourly prayers Night and Day
for 3 days and 3 nights. He started to improve.
On the 7th day he told us that, as I
was praying, something like Arrows were flying out from his body [probably
demons that had caused the sickness], that his eyes were opened and
everything in his body started to operate normally.
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... Praise
