The people don't have the powers, the LoL does. The people ask him to do something and he does it based on whether he feels like it. I don't see why it would be a deus ex machine if the LoL decides he wants Jon alive.again, the red priestess has stated she doesn't have that power.
it would be a STUPID deus ex machina if all of a sudden she developed it just in time to save John snow's life.
then again why did she return to the Wall instead of, say, where the other servant of the LoL was? (the one who did the resurrection in season 2.)
oh god.. I now see this as possible:
she devoted herself in helping stannis in the name of the LoL. she received x magical powers.
now she devoted herself into helping John Snow. her old powers got replaced by new powers. (ie: resurrection)
powers given by LoL are based on the person you're helping in his name.
