Deadraiser – David Hogan

Categories: Blog,Pastors

People often ask me, “How did you make a connection with David Hogan?”  Well, the short answer is that God totally connected us!  But, let me give you the longer version and take the details of these lessons and apply them to your life as well.

A minister friend of mine gave me a couple of CDs by missionary David Hogan whose ministry is in Vera Cruz State, Mexico.  This is an area that had resisted the Gospel and violently opposed any intrusions into their areas by outsiders.  Many of the villages were steeped in occult worship that had been practiced for thousands of years.  When David and his wife Debbie first arrived, they were met with stiff persecution and little to no results after months of witnessing and preaching the Gospel.  David has been beaten with machetes, stoned, shot in the head, and his persecutors have attempted to drown him on three separate occasions.Hogan-worship

Their response to all of this was to fast and pray for great demonstrations of God’s power that would bring breakthrough!  Soon, the healings began, which resulted in whole villages coming to the Lord and churches being established.  Next, people began to be raised from the dead.  The Bible records in both Old & New Testament time’s examples of God raising people from the dead.  And of course, Our Lord and Leader Jesus Christ was raised from the dead so, “Why should it be thought incredible by you that God raises the dead?  Acts 26:8

At the time of this writing, David has seen 32 raised from the dead and his national pastors and ministers have seen around 500 that God has raised.  David’s Freedom Ministries has 4200 churches today.  God usually chooses to raise the dead through us, His people.  It’s by His power – not ours, and to the glory of His Name – not ours!  In the USA we are currently hearing a steady stream of reports about people being raised, (Get a copy of my good friend Johnny Clark’s excellent movie/doc. “Deadraiser”.)

So, before I met David Hogan, I had listened to about 100 of his messages that stretched and inspired my faith with fresh Holy Ghost fire!  I believe in what the Bible clearly teaches concerning blessing those who have fed you spiritually with a financial gift in return; so, I sent Freedom Ministries some personal love offerings and on one occasion included a copy of a prophetic end time’s word by famous missionary to China, Hudson Taylor.  That spoke to David’s heart and the Holy Spirit directed him to come to our church in Boulder, Colorado.  We are not a large church, but David says he goes where the Lord directs him and where the people are hungry for the things of God – size doesn’t matter.

When we had our first meeting together he and I hit it off instantly!  We are “like spirits” and pursuing the same things in the Kingdom of God.  Some of my minister friends that I have known for years, David knows, and one of them was his childhood friend in Louisiana!  David is slandered and persecuted by “unbelieving believers” here and there, but I want you to be rest assured – he is the real deal!

Someday in the future, if the Lord doesn’t return first, you will be reading books written about David Hogan.  I don’t say that to glorify him, but to highlight what God has done through him.  And, be encouraged, God will work through any of us who will make a similar whole-hearted devotion to see the God of the Bible breakthrough and demonstrate His Love, Power, and Glory right in the midst of where we live, too!

    I want and have been praying for breakthrough in my area! The Lord has been leading me to study/listen to John G. Lake’s ministry, David Hogan’s, Todd White’s and lots of others. The area I live is full of doubt and unbelief in the areas these ministries cover so please pray for what I believe the Lord wants to do here…His work. Thank you!

    I stumbled upon David Hogan’s sermons when I was desperate to hear someone preach and teach the word without compromise….my faith was weak and I needed to hear someone who really believed. I was hungry. I watched a video on YouTube that was entitled “Faith to Raise the Dead” and was instantly encouraged and challenged. I felt the Holy Spirit jumping up in me like a little child, saying “let’s go!” Ever since that day I was emboldened to put God’s word into practice in the areas of healing and deliverance. I am learning and am so thankful for people like David and many others who are inspiring the church to rise up and to not be afraid but to trust God. Thank you for writing this…I realize that I should find ways to support David’s ministry for the many hours of sermons that I’ve watched which have always inspired me to walk the walk and have taught me so many things!
