How to Raise the Dead

As you go, preach, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons.” (Matthew 10:7-8)
If we are going to obey the Lord and raise the dead, we have to start somewhere. Here’s a good place to begin.


1. Get a revelation of heaven.
  • There are no cemeteries in heaven.
  • There are no funeral parlors in heaven.
  • There are no undertakers in heaven.
  • There are no obituaries in heaven.
  • There are no memorial services in heaven.
  • There are no burials in heaven.
  • There are no dead people in heaven.
2. Remember the prayer Jesus taught us:
  • Father, reveal who You are.
  • Kingdom of God, come!
  • Will of God, be done on earth as it is in heaven.
3. Pray that prayer.

We have authority to raise the dead, we just need to learn how to use it.
