A 3 year old boy in Sapele, Nigeria has been raised from the dead after being prayed for by evangelist Daniel Kolenda of the Christ For All Nations evangelistic organization. This happened near the end of a multi-day crusade that Christ For All Nations was holding in Sapele. Crowds at the crusade have been as large as 200,000 people for a single service. Miracles are regularly seen at the crusades that Christ For All Nations put on, but for a 3 year old boy to be raised from the dead is truly extraordinary.
The following is a brief account of what happened from Kolenda himself….
Last night after the service, a woman stopped me as we were getting in the car to leave. In her arms she held her dead 3-year-old son. I held the body for just a moment, prayed and then left. Tonight we heard the testimony; as we drove away, the boy came to life and he is now perfectly well. She shared the testimony tonight and the crowd went wild! All of Sapele is rejoicing. Praise the Lord!
Most Christians are amazed when they find out that these types of things are still happening today, but they should not be. In Mark 16:15-18, Jesus told His disciples this….
“Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”
