TOPIC: God Can Also Use You To Raise The Dead (Scroll down for RCCG House Fellowship 15 November 2020 Anthem)

PRAYER POINT: Father, please use me for Your glory and let me do exploits for You.

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE: The leader should ask any member to explain what Dagon means.

MEMORY VERSE: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. – John 14:12

BIBLE TEXT: Mark 5:35-42 (KJV)

35 While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?

36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.

37 And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James.

38 And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly.

39 And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth.

40 And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying.

41 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise.

42 And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment.


God’s Word cannot return to Him void, it must accomplish what it was sent to do (Isaiah 55:10-11). Jesus is the word (John 1:1-2). In our today’s memory verse, Jesus expressly said that we (the believers in Him) shall do the works He did. When He was in this world, raising the dead was among the numerous miraculous works He performed; our today’s text establishes this. When He ascended, He mandated them (the disciples) to wait for the power (Acts 1:8) which they did and the power came on them (Acts 2:1-3).

To encourage every believer, that the power to do exploits and raise the dead is available for every child of God.

B: TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, members should be:

i. Hungry and thirsty for the power of God to do exploits using the name of Jesus.
ii. Toll the path of the Apostles of old.
iii. Demonstrate the efficiency in the name of Jesus Christ if only they believe.

TEXT REVIEW: Mark 5:35-42
i. God can use anything for His glory.
ii. God uses who and what is available.


As it is noted that the word of God cannot fail, the disciples went into action of performing miracles. Peter is a clear example of this, when he prayed like Jesus and raised DORCAS from death (Acts 9:36-43). Even though Paul was not yet a disciple when Jesus was physically present on earth, he brought back to life EUTYCHUS (Acts 20:8-12).

According to Mark 16:17-18, anyone (including you) who believes in our Lord Jesus Christ and His word can perform diverse kind of miracles, including raising the dead. However you must fulfill these fundamentals: (i.) to be born again (John 3:3-5), (ii.) to believe in the word of God (John 1:12), (iii.) Evangelise and pray for the sick and they shall recover (Mark 16:15-18, 20). Gradually you begin to raise the dead through Jesus.

ACTIVITY: Mention the names of the apostles who raised the dead in their ministry and the names of the people they raised from the dead.

SUMMARY: Keep preaching the gospel in season and out of season and exercise faith in God. Miracles will come.

God is committed to the fulfilment of His words. However, your faith is needed for the performance. So, take the bull by the horn by going out to preach the gospel; – then the miracles, signs and wonders shall automatically follow you (Mark 16:20).

WEDNESDAY: Isaiah 59:1-2 – Sin separates man from God. Live holy.
