Ella Onakoya: "Prophesy and 'Speak Life' Into Dead Situations!"

Ella Onakoya
Apr 12, 2023

From the Desks of Steve Shultz and Julie A. Smith:

Steve ShultzThis is such a profound word that will really stretch your faith right now to believe for impossible situations to turn around.

Our friend, Ella Onakoya, is a mighty evangelist, and she is passionate about seeing people saved, healed and set free.

As we continue to see revival break out in the nations, we will also hear more reports of dead situations being brought back to life...including the raising of the dead!

Ella writes here:

I believe we are in an Ezekiel 37 moment, where many are being strategically placed in valleys of dry bones. Ezekiel heard the voice of the Lord: "Can these bones live?" (see Ezekiel 37:3). In these Ezekiel 37 moments, there is a clarion call from Heaven to prophesy and speak life over the dry bones in our lives, churches, governments, nations and families.

Are there dead and impossible situations you are facing right now?

Steve ShultzRead the rest of Ella's rich word from God's heart to yours... Let it empower you to boldly arise in your authority to "call those things which are not as though they were" (see Romans 4:17).

Let's prophesy and speak LIFE into our families, regions and nation! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Dream of Raising the Dead

On the 7th of March, 2023, the Lord gave me a very profound dream. In the dream, whilst I was praying for people who needed healing, I heard an urgent message that someone had just died. I felt in my heart that I needed to raise this person from the dead.

As I got to the place where the dead body was, I was shocked that it was not the normal, intact body I was expecting to see, but one that had been dismembered. In the dream, I had faith to resurrect the body of a person that had died, but not a dismembered one.

I started to wonder how I could have faith for such a resurrection when I remembered a testimony shared by a preacher at a conference I attended in real life, where he had shared about how the Lord used him to raise a dead person whose body was in a similar condition. That preacher had testified about releasing the resurrection power of God over the body, and how every part of the body he prayed over came together, and the person was resurrected!

In my dream, my faith started to increase as I remembered that testimony, but just as I was about to resurrect the body, I woke up!

This dream was so vivid in its intensity that I woke up surprised it was a dream. I believe this message in the dream is not just for me but for many of us. I believe the dream is rich in its depth, with layers of interpretation. Here are some of its interpretations below:

A Stretching of Faith Beyond What We Can Imagine

I believe the Lord is preparing and encouraging us to get ready to be stretched in our faith in the season we are in, as impossible situations will become possible through the power of the Holy Spirit within us. The stretching of your faith in this season is necessary to train you for the seasons and times ahead. Seasons the enemy has earmarked to be times of defeat will see the emergence of God's triumphant ones.

Recently, in my school of ministry of deliverance and prayer, the Lord spoke to me about seemingly unmovable monuments that will shift by faith and the power of prayer. So many ungodly government policies and unrighteous policies will experience a shift through the power of prayer.

Using strategic keys of prayer that I taught in my school, some of my students prayed to dismantle the policy of the compulsory vaccine mandate for visitors arriving in the USA. (This policy had made it difficult for unvaccinated visitors to reunite with their loved ones. It had also hindered visiting ministers of God, who had no desire to be vaccinated, from entering the USA to do their mission work.) (Photo via Pixabay)

Within a few days of my students praying, there was an announcement on February 8th that the U.S. House of Representatives had voted to end the vaccine requirement for foreign visitors! By May 11th, we believe that this mandate, in addition to other emergency mandates, will completely end. I do not believe it was a coincidence that this happened, but that faith and the release of strategic prayers had moved this seemingly immovable monument.

There are ungodly monuments in the nations that the Lord is wanting us to speak into. He wants us to stretch our faith and speak into threats of wars, evil policies concerning transgenderism and so much more. These mountains and monuments will move as we release our faith and pray, believing for God to do His will on Earth as is in Heaven.

An Ezekiel 37 Moment

I believe we are in an Ezekiel 37 moment, where many are being strategically placed in valleys of dry bones. Ezekiel heard the voice of the Lord: "Can these bones live?" (see Ezekiel 37:3). In these Ezekiel 37 moments, there is a clarion call from Heaven to prophesy and speak life over the dry bones in our lives, churches, governments, nations and families.

A few months ago, one of my students who had suffered several miscarriages in the past became pregnant again, but had a recent scan which detected no heartbeat for the baby. She contacted me and she told me of this distressing situation. I reassured her that God's resurrection power would reverse all enemy attacks of death against her baby. I commanded life into the baby and decreed for the heartbeat to return. I encouraged her to continue to speak life over her baby, and within a few days, she had messaged me with a testimony, praising the Lord that her baby was alive! She even showed me an image of a new scan of the baby, now showing a heartbeat!

Situations that are dead or dying are waiting for our life-giving words. Hear the voice of the Lord declaring through the ages: "...'Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, "O dry bones, hear the word of the LORD! Thus says the Lord GOD to these bones: 'Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the LORD'"'" (Ezekiel 37:4-6).

Speak and release creative miracles into sick bodies and the supernatural move of God into the nations. Prophesy over the dry bones of the unsaved, speak life through the preaching of the Gospel, and watch as an exceedingly great and mighty army of the Lord arises as these souls become saved.

Unity and a Global Awakening of the Saints

This dream had many more layers of revelation that can be shared in this article, but one of the keys that is of great importance is that of the unity of the saints and a global awakening, which I believe is on God's heart and agenda. (Photo via Unsplash)

In my dream, the body I saw was dismembered instead of being whole. Today, in many ways, we see a disjointed Body of Christ, separated and divided by policies, cultures, disagreements and so much more.

I see parts of the Body that are unknown and look different from the rest of the Body. They are different because they are uniquely made by the Father. Some of them are newly saved with broken backgrounds, and should not be looked at with hostility or distrust. They need mothers and fathers to love them and heal their wounds, helping them step into the maturity that Christ has for them.

Recently, the Lord told me in a dream that some of the others, who also need to arise and take their place in the Body, are women. I believe the heart of Jesus is longing for every person and facet of His Body, whom He has made for His glory, to take their place in the Church, of which He is the head.

Jesus, during His time on the earth, spoke on the glory of unity and prayed earnestly to the Father, "And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me" (John 17:22-23). Jesus prayed for the release of the glory that would bring unity. Pentecost happened in Acts 2, when a united Body came together to pray and wait on the promised gift of the Holy Spirit. May we pray in this global awakening of unity of the saints.

Speak Life: Today, in the name of Jesus, I speak life over dead situations in our lives and nations. I speak forth life and resurrection to the physically dead who have died prematurely, where it is the Father's will for them to be raised up. I speak and echo the prayer of Christ – for the manifestation of the glory in us, His saints, that will speak of unity and bring it. I speak forth and decree that we, as the Body of Christ, would come together and take our place in God's plan for a global awakening, so that the name of Jesus will be glorified. Amen!
