while it was still dark…
Soldiers stationed at the tomb of
Jesus felt an intense earthquake.
Then they saw a great light.
A small star in the heavens
announced Christ’s birth…
And a powerful light announced his rebirth.
7 Verses of
Matthew Chapter 28
… capture this epic event:
1. After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day
of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went
to look at the tomb.
2. There was a violent earthquake, for an angel
of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb,
rolled back the stone and sat on it.
3. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes
were white as snow.
4. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook
and became like dead men.
5. The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know
that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.
6. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.
Come and see the place where he lay.
7. Then go quickly and tell his disciples:
‘He has RISEN from the dead and is going
ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.
Now I have told you.’
A great Bible commentator puts it this way:
“Today we remember a sudden burst of LIGHT that tore
the veil of the bleak and forlorn darkness of that Sunday morning…
Revealing a risen LORD and conquering Messiah who
defeated sin and death by crushing the head of the serpent.”

My prayer for you and your family is 3-fold:
1. Let evil stones be rolled away from your life and family in Jesus name.
2. And let the resurrection light shine upon every dark area of your life…
3. Let that same Power of Resurrection that raised JESUS CHRIST from the dead… begin to quicken every “dead” area of your life and breathe life anew into you and your loved ones…
In Jesus Christ’s name. Amen.
This Is Your Hour To Shine
It is the Season of Resurrection….
Robert Barron, founder of Word on Fire puts it quite bluntly:
“The resurrection of Jesus from the dead is the be-all and the end-all of the Christian faith. If Jesus didn’t rise from the dead, all bishops, priests, and Christian ministers should go home and get honest jobs, and all the Christian faithful should leave their churches immediately.
As Paul himself put it: “If Jesus is not raised from the dead, our preaching is in vain and we are the most pitiable of men.” It’s no good trying to explain the resurrection away or rationalize it as a myth, a symbol, or an inner subjective experience. None of that does justice to the novelty and sheer strangeness of the Biblical message.
It comes down finally to this: if Jesus was not raised from death, Christianity is a fraud and a joke; if he did rise from death, then Christianity is the fullness of God’s revelation, and Jesus must be the absolute center of our lives. There is no third option.”

Now, Christ was raised from the dead by the Power of Resurrection.
And that Power is still available to us today, as believers.
What is the evidence?
After He rose from the dead, He gave us this charge:
And he said to them, Go you into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
He that believes and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believes not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. – Mark 16:15-17
Let’s see how our band of prayer eagles are responding to this divine mandate.
Today, the gospel of Jesus Christ is still being preached all over the earth.
Take away the gospel, and all you have left is a life without meaning…
… a hollow, worthless emptiness that so many are experiencing today.
Not so for the believer in Christ.
See an email I received a few hours ago:
*** We Refused the Doctor’s Report ***
“I prayed for my relative who had an accident in November 2015 and was admitted in ICU, it was a bad accident because after staying in ICU for almost a month with no improvement the doctors decided to shut the machine but we refused and I started the midnight prayers and prayed firing the bullets violently. We refused doctors report and continued praying for his healing. I thank God because on 29th January he was discharged out of hospital totally healed.
** No Dialysis, No Blood Transfusion Needed **
My God is a miracle worker !! I stormed the gates f 2016 using the prayer points you sent Elisha , within 2 weeks of January 2016 I bought a car , God is great. In 2014 my dad was diagnosed with a kidney disease ,the Dr said that he needed dialysis and I told my dad that am going to do something that will restore your health, I did the Esther fast and as I speak now his kidney condition was reversed with no dialysis ,no blood transfusion. The Dr had suggested to do various things but he did less, Jesus healed him. – Shamin
** Jobless No More **
These are the same prayers I prayed. I had no job for close to 8 months. I used to go for interviews but no responses were coming. I prayed these prayer bullets with fasting and I thank God for prayers answered. I now have a job. Thanks be to our Lord Jesus Christ. – Janet
** More Brand New Jobs **
I was introduced to your website, though I am not yet a member, last wk I did a 3-day Esther Fast, and my daughter in UK gt a job as an Administration Finance officer. This week I continued with my fast and just now my daughter sent me a msg saying her husband got a job as a payroll officer, I can’t believe it. All these prayers answered I got them on my 2nd day fast. Praise God.
Praise the LORD.
HE has empowered believers to go out and touch the world with our Resurrection Prayers to…
- make dead things come alive.
– restore what has been lost or stolen
– reverse the decree of death
- draw you closer to the Lord
- break every chain and stronghold of the enemy
… all because of the Power of Resurrection, made available to you and me through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Because Christ is
risen from the dead…
You and me … and the entire Body of Christ …
… we’re called to be living examples of that Power of Resurrection at work in every area of life.
Please don’t settle for less!
Learn to speak the words of resurrection (through relentless prayer) into every area of your life … even if in the natural it appears many things are dead and buried.
(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickens the dead, and calls those things which be not as though they were.
YOU have been given the POWER (in the name of the risen Lord) to speak life to dead things… using your mouth the way God does.
That, my friend, is your secret passcode into the supernatural in this season.
