A Season of Resurrection


Friend, praise the Name of The Lord Jesus Christ. I know it is well with you and it shall continue to be well with you in Jesus mighty name. Amen. My wife and I are doing well and are thankful to the Lord for His continued faithfulness towards us.


This month of April, God will enable you to “Step into your Season of Resurrection”.


Let us examine one instance of resurrection that is recorded in 1 Kings 17:17-24 where we read as follows:


“…. O Lord my God, I pray thee, let this child's soul come into him again. And the Lord heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived.  And Elijah took the child, and brought him down out of the chamber into the house, and delivered him unto his mother: and Elijah said, See, thy son liveth. And the woman said to Elijah, Now by this I know that thou art a man of God, and that the word of the Lord in thy mouth is truth”


The woman in the above story was a widow who lived in the village of Zarephath, near the city of Sidon in Israel. Not long after the death of her husband, her child also died. The Bible tell us that she  went and cried to Elijah, the prophet, who in turn cried out to God. God heard the man of God and the boy lived.


In this scripture reading, God is speaking to us. He is letting us know that He is able to locate you no matter where you are. You may live in a village that is not even on the map, a village that is unknown to anyone but God knows. You may be “a nobody” by worldly standards but God knows all about you.  He will not forget you; He will locate you with His favor and will cause you to receive your miracle.

The child died


The Bible tells us that the widow’s child died. Friend, you may have some areas of your life, some projects; some plans, etc that may have died or that may seem dead. Whatever the case may be, do not despair; do not give up because God, the one who gives life will turn things around and cause life to spring up in Jesus mighty name. Amen.


The widow went to the prophet


The widow did not throw her hands up in the air and cry. She did not go to just anybody. The Scriptures tell us that she went and cried out to the prophet Elijah. I declare that God will grant you divine helpers; those ordained by God to cause life to spring forth in every dead area of your life in Jesus mighty name. Amen. I declare that those God has ordained to help us will take their rightful place in Jesus mighty name. Amen.


May the Lord keep us from going to places He has not ordained us to go. May we only go to those places and to the people that He has destined for us. We agree that the paths of the righteous grow brighter and brighter to the fullness of day in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Your own path will be bright in Jesus glorious name. Amen.



The Prophet Elijah cried out to God to restore life to the widow’s child. Friend, never forget that God is the source of life. Nothing that you consider dead can avoid His resurrection power. He has all power. In heaven, on earth, under the earth, in this age and even in the age to come, all power belongs to Him. God is the Author of all life and He will beautify your life as you continue to put your trust Him.


This season, receive God, receive life, in Jesus mighty name. Amen.


Take your child


After God resurrected the child, the prophet Elijah took him to his mother saying “see thy son liveth”. This season, expect glorious surprises as God revives and resurrects things in your life this month in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Children that had long been lost, expect them to return home in this season of resurrection in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Expect revival in your prayer life, your ministry, etc. I call forth every dormant project to be resurrected and revived in Jesus mighty name. Amen. May God pleasantly surprise you in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Every dormant gifts in your life, I declare this is their season of resurrection. Your first love with God, I see a resurrection taking place in Jesus Mighty Name,Amen.


Christ’s resurrection


A greater resurrection that we celebrate this month is that of Christ. He died and rose again so that you and I might live forever. According to the songwriter:

“Because He lives, I can face tomorrow”


Your tomorrow will be glorious in Jesus mighty name, amen. May all that Christ died for be received by you and I and may we receive the fullness of that which He has ordained for you and I this season in Jesus mighty name.


In Revelation 5:12, we see that Christ died to receive all power, riches, wisdom, might, honor, majesty and blessings. Tap into that which Christ wants you to receive this season in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Prophetic Decrees


Therefore we declare over:


a. Your life - Anything in your life that you or anyone has written off as dead shall come alive this season in Jesus mighty name. Amen.


b. Your Business - Religious/Spiritual or otherwise; ideas and projects that you have put on the shelf for long. God is releasing resurrection power over them in Jesus mighty name. Amen. You will see them come alive in Jesus mighty name. Amen.


c. Your family, your children and children’s children – God is causing resurrection power to overshadow them and will cause life to come forth in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Those who have been written off, God is touching them now. Just like the prodigal son, they are coming back to life in Jesus mighty name. Amen.



The Lord bless you this season and cause you to experience all that God has ordained for you in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Resurrection is your portion this season!
