In recent times, at least two people have been raised from the dead. So, it’s only fair that we take a look at popular pastors who have been able to achieve these incredible feats.
Here are five popular pastors who have brought people from the dead.
The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) is the most recent person to have revived a dead person.
According to Premium Times, a dead woman was resurrected with a cloth anointed by the popular Man of God.
The testimony was shared by Pastor Timothy Owoade at the Special Holy Ghost Service of the church for children, teens and young adults on Saturday morning.
The story reads: “During the March Holy Ghost Service which coincided with Mr. Adeboye’s birthday, many people had expected him to bless holy oil or handkerchiefs for the congregation, but he said he had not been directed by God to do that. Instead, he prayed to anoint clothes people wore that day, advising that they could be used during difficult cases for miracles.
“One morning, last month, a pastor, Timothy Owoade, woke up early to pray with his wife in the bedroom before joining their children for the larger family prayers. He recalled that as he prayed there was no response from his wife — not even the usual ‘Amen.’
“Surprised, he tapped her and asked if she was okay, but there was no response. He quickly examined her and noticed she was dead. He raised alarm which attracted the children and neighbors.
“As they were taking her to the hospital, he remembered the clothes he wore to the March Holy Ghost Service, rushed for them to wrap around the corpse. Amid shouts of praise, he said his wife came back to life before they got to the hospital, where she was certified okay.”
Last week, news of a dead man who was brought back to life by Bishop David Oyedepo’s prophetic mantle broke the internet.
According to Faith Tabernacle Press & Publicity Unit Facebook Page, Fidelis had been pronounced dead by four hospitals but his condition changed as soon as his pastor placed the prophetic mantle around his neck and poured some anointing oil inside his mouth.
Reverend Father Mbaka
On Thursday, December 7, 2017, the leader of the Adoration Ministry brought a dead baby back to life. The dead baby was brought in a box to a crusade where the cleric laid his hands on the infant.
The laying of hands brought the baby to life to the excitement of the mother and the crowd.
Apostle Johnson Suleman
The General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries raised a woman from the dead during the ‘Fresh Fire’ crusade after two hours of prayers on Thursday, December 15, 2016.
According to a post on the church’s website, “God returned her to life because of her good works. The woman was involved in the distribution of free Bibles to people for years and she has helped people of various backgrounds at different times.”
The post adds, “Typically, as she opened her eyes to life again, the woman announced to the congregation that she was giving a piece of land owned by her in Ajao Estate in Lagos for a new branch of Omega Fire Ministries.”
Prophet Anointed Andrew
In 2017, the founder of Christ Freedom Ministries who is popularly called Seer 1, claimed to resurrect a young man.
There was no evidence just his story of how he raised a dead man who was brought to him after he gave up the ghost. According to the Prophet, the man was brought to him by his parents who refused to take him to a mortuary.
Luckily for his parents, the cleric was able to resurrect the dead man by putting him on the floor, praying over his body and breathing life into him.Follow us Twitter: @micnaijonline Facebook: @micnaijonline Instagram: @micnaijonline
