  • 00:00:03.050 --> 00:00:06.190
  • (MUSIC STARTS) Coming up on Christ for all Nations...
  • 00:00:08.260 --> 00:00:13.090
  • REINHARD BONNKE- Luis Graf passed that fire that he had,
  • 00:00:13.130 --> 00:00:16.270
  • on to my family. The Lord called me into the ministry when I was
  • 00:00:17.010 --> 00:00:21.060
  • just a boy of 10 years of age.
  • 00:00:21.100 --> 00:00:23.290
  • So I can see how everything was laid out. And by the grace of
  • 00:00:24.030 --> 00:00:27.290
  • God, I was able to step into that ready-made plan of God.
  • 00:00:28.030 --> 00:00:33.100
  • (Music)
  • 00:00:33.140 --> 00:00:42.240
  • REINHARD BONNKE- He has come to break every chain and to
  • 00:00:42.280 --> 00:00:45.230
  • unlock every prison door.
  • 00:00:45.270 --> 00:00:49.140
  • DANIEL- He turns darkness into light.
  • 00:00:51.080 --> 00:00:55.130
  • He turns sin into salvation.
  • 00:00:55.170 --> 00:00:57.090
  • He turns bondage into freedom.
  • 00:00:57.130 --> 00:01:00.140
  • And He changes us from the inside out.
  • 00:01:00.180 --> 00:01:03.050
  • (Music)
  • 00:01:03.090 --> 00:01:13.110
  • DANIEL- Hello everyone, and welcome to another broadcast
  • 00:01:13.150 --> 00:01:16.020
  • of Christ for all Nations. I'm Daniel Kolenda, and it's my joy
  • 00:01:16.060 --> 00:01:19.180
  • to host you today on this very special broadcast. I want to
  • 00:01:19.220 --> 00:01:23.170
  • encourage you right now at the beginning of the show to get in
  • 00:01:23.210 --> 00:01:27.050
  • touch with us. There is contact information right there on
  • 00:01:27.090 --> 00:01:29.130
  • your screen and this is very important because we believe
  • 00:01:29.170 --> 00:01:32.110
  • that this show is interactive.
  • 00:01:32.150 --> 00:01:34.050
  • And we are going to be praying for your prayer requests today
  • 00:01:34.090 --> 00:01:36.270
  • at the end. We're gonna lay our hands on them and I believe that
  • 00:01:37.010 --> 00:01:39.220
  • the same power of the Holy Spirit that we have seen flowing
  • 00:01:39.260 --> 00:01:42.270
  • around the world is going to flow today on this broadcast to
  • 00:01:43.010 --> 00:01:46.120
  • you, and you're gonna be touched and blessed. But also, I
  • 00:01:46.160 --> 00:01:50.020
  • also have some very special information to share with you at
  • 00:01:50.060 --> 00:01:52.280
  • the end of the broadcast, so make sure that you stick around.
  • 00:01:53.020 --> 00:01:55.170
  • Now it's my great joy today to introduce to you somebody who
  • 00:01:55.210 --> 00:02:00.040
  • here at Christ for all Nations really needs no introduction. He
  • 00:02:00.080 --> 00:02:02.170
  • is the founder of the ministry of Christ for all Nations. More
  • 00:02:02.210 --> 00:02:05.200
  • than 40 years ago he left his German roots in Germany and went
  • 00:02:05.240 --> 00:02:10.270
  • to Lesotho, a southern African nation as a missionary. And the
  • 00:02:11.010 --> 00:02:14.110
  • rest is history. Today, I'm going to be talking to him about
  • 00:02:14.150 --> 00:02:17.250
  • his amazing life and about his amazing book about that life.
  • 00:02:17.290 --> 00:02:21.290
  • Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, thank you so much for being here today.
  • 00:02:22.030 --> 00:02:25.120
  • REINHARD- Yeah, thank you very much, Daniel.
  • 00:02:25.160 --> 00:02:27.080
  • DANIEL- It's always a joy to talk to you 'cause I love
  • 00:02:27.120 --> 00:02:29.060
  • to hear the stories of what God did in your life.
  • 00:02:29.100 --> 00:02:32.020
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:02:32.060 --> 00:02:33.100
  • DANIEL- And one of the things about your book that
  • 00:02:33.140 --> 00:02:35.050
  • amazed me is that those stories didn't just begin when you went into the ministry.
  • 00:02:35.090 --> 00:02:39.090
  • REINHARD- No, no
  • 00:02:39.130 --> 00:02:41.000
  • DANIEL- The amazing stories went on from even before you were born.
  • 00:02:41.040 --> 00:02:44.030
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:02:44.070 --> 00:02:45.140
  • DANIEL- Would you just mind sharing with us how it
  • 00:02:45.180 --> 00:02:48.030
  • happened, how the Holy Spirit broke into the Bonnke family.
  • 00:02:48.070 --> 00:02:50.030
  • REINHARD- Yes, yes, my father was a pastor and when I
  • 00:02:50.070 --> 00:02:54.020
  • was a teenager, one day I, I had a look at our family tree and
  • 00:02:54.060 --> 00:03:01.070
  • discovered that the Bonnke clan consisted mostly of unbelievers,
  • 00:03:01.110 --> 00:03:09.120
  • people who didn't believe in Jesus Christ. And I was so
  • 00:03:09.160 --> 00:03:15.160
  • amazed. I said to my father, I said, how did God break into
  • 00:03:15.200 --> 00:03:21.220
  • our family. When I think of my grandfather and of you, who are
  • 00:03:21.260 --> 00:03:26.280
  • such strong men of faith, how is it possible that, that, that the
  • 00:03:27.020 --> 00:03:33.250
  • Lord did something so wonderful in your life. And my father told
  • 00:03:33.290 --> 00:03:38.070
  • me a story that has really had a mighty effect on my whole life.
  • 00:03:38.110 --> 00:03:44.010
  • He said to me that in 1922, my grandfather, his name was August Bonnke, was very, very sick.
  • 00:03:44.050 --> 00:03:54.000
  • They lived in, somewhere in East Germany, Ostpreuen, was
  • 00:03:54.040 --> 00:04:01.180
  • the province, East Prussia, in a very forested area,
  • 00:04:01.220 --> 00:04:09.200
  • agricultural, and so on and so on. And my grandfather was so
  • 00:04:09.240 --> 00:04:14.070
  • sick he screamed day and night for pain. Doctors couldn't find
  • 00:04:14.110 --> 00:04:20.230
  • what was wrong with him. They couldn't diagnose him. There was
  • 00:04:20.270 --> 00:04:25.170
  • no medicine. There was no prayer. There was no hope. And
  • 00:04:25.210 --> 00:04:30.260
  • this went on week after week, and month after month,
  • 00:04:31.000 --> 00:04:36.030
  • and year after year; searing pains they called it. I mean
  • 00:04:36.070 --> 00:04:43.010
  • pains that were almost unbearable. And then one day a
  • 00:04:43.050 --> 00:04:49.030
  • miracle happened. An American missionary from Springfield,
  • 00:04:49.070 --> 00:04:55.030
  • Missouri, lost his way in the forest and came to our village.
  • 00:04:55.070 --> 00:05:03.260
  • And as those early missionaries and evangelists worked in those
  • 00:05:04.000 --> 00:05:09.220
  • days, their first question was when they came to a new village
  • 00:05:09.260 --> 00:05:15.030
  • or town, is there anybody sick in this area? And people said,
  • 00:05:15.070 --> 00:05:20.130
  • oh, yes, somebody is very sick here. As a matter of fact you
  • 00:05:20.170 --> 00:05:25.230
  • can hear him scream. And this American missionary's name
  • 00:05:25.270 --> 00:05:32.190
  • was Luis Graf. He heard my grandfather scream, and somehow
  • 00:05:32.230 --> 00:05:41.200
  • the compassion and mercy of God filled his heart and he knew why
  • 00:05:41.240 --> 00:05:48.250
  • he had lost his way. The Holy Spirit had brought him right
  • 00:05:48.290 --> 00:05:53.060
  • here and some wonderful deliverance would take place. So
  • 00:05:53.100 --> 00:06:00.170
  • to cut a long story short, they took him to my grandfather's
  • 00:06:00.210 --> 00:06:04.030
  • house. He was lying in bed, writhing in pain. My grandmother
  • 00:06:04.070 --> 00:06:10.020
  • was there. He started to preach the Gospel. He told them about
  • 00:06:10.060 --> 00:06:15.240
  • Jesus, how Jesus saves, how Jesus heals. And then he stepped
  • 00:06:15.280 --> 00:06:21.280
  • forward and said, I have been sent to demonstrate the power of
  • 00:06:22.020 --> 00:06:30.150
  • the Holy Spirit. He grabbed the hand of my grandfather, and a
  • 00:06:30.190 --> 00:06:36.050
  • jolt of power went through the body of my sick grandfather. He
  • 00:06:36.090 --> 00:06:45.120
  • jumped out of bed, completely healed. He looked at himself,
  • 00:06:45.160 --> 00:06:51.270
  • those swollen wrists and ankles, and, and joints were smooth, and
  • 00:06:52.010 --> 00:07:00.170
  • pain free. And he hardly could, could believe it. He was
  • 00:07:00.210 --> 00:07:06.040
  • jumping. He was screaming. He was weeping. He was dancing
  • 00:07:06.080 --> 00:07:10.100
  • together with grandma, and praising God for this wonderful
  • 00:07:10.140 --> 00:07:16.190
  • miracle that He had done. My grandfather and my grandmother
  • 00:07:16.230 --> 00:07:22.090
  • received Jesus that day. But Luis Graf said, I'm not done
  • 00:07:22.130 --> 00:07:29.040
  • yet. He said, you still need to receive the baptism into the
  • 00:07:29.080 --> 00:07:34.170
  • Holy Spirit. My grandparents had never heard of any, anything
  • 00:07:34.210 --> 00:07:41.010
  • like that, but they were now ready to receive anything that
  • 00:07:41.050 --> 00:07:46.270
  • was mentioned. And Luis Graf laid his hands on them, and the
  • 00:07:47.010 --> 00:07:52.040
  • power of God fell on both and they broke out in new tongues,
  • 00:07:52.080 --> 00:07:57.250
  • praising Jesus. And, and they were filled with the fire and the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:07:57.290 --> 00:08:06.190
  • That's how God broke into the Bonnke family.
  • 00:08:06.230 --> 00:08:12.280
  • DANIEL- And then you were born, what?
  • 00:08:13.020 --> 00:08:14.240
  • REINHARD- I was born 18 years later.
  • 00:08:14.280 --> 00:08:17.010
  • DANIEL- Amazing
  • 00:08:17.050 --> 00:08:18.100
  • REINHARD- I never met that man. But I believe with all
  • 00:08:18.140 --> 00:08:22.040
  • of my heart that when Luis Graf entered the house of my
  • 00:08:22.080 --> 00:08:26.170
  • ancestors, that the Holy Spirit put the thread through my
  • 00:08:26.210 --> 00:08:32.040
  • needle. And that explains so many other happenings later in
  • 00:08:32.080 --> 00:08:38.220
  • my life. It was, it was all pre-ordained, and I am ever so
  • 00:08:38.260 --> 00:08:48.080
  • glad that I was able to connect with Luis Graf. And then of
  • 00:08:48.120 --> 00:08:53.010
  • course, my father later and begun to serve the Lord.
  • 00:08:53.050 --> 00:08:57.240
  • DANIEL- It's amazing to me how that early experience,
  • 00:08:57.280 --> 00:09:01.020
  • even before you were born, was like the seed. It was almost
  • 00:09:01.060 --> 00:09:04.100
  • like a prophetic sign of what your life would be,
  • 00:09:04.140 --> 00:09:08.050
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:09:08.090 --> 00:09:09.100
  • DANIEL- miracles, baptism in the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:09:09.140 --> 00:09:10.270
  • REINHARD- Everything
  • 00:09:11.010 --> 00:09:11.270
  • DANIEL- preaching of the Gospel,
  • 00:09:12.010 --> 00:09:13.130
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:09:13.170 --> 00:09:14.130
  • DANIEL- even before you were born.
  • 00:09:14.170 --> 00:09:16.010
  • REINHARD- Yes, absolutely; but also is very
  • 00:09:16.050 --> 00:09:17.280
  • clear to me that the Lord knew what He did.
  • 00:09:18.020 --> 00:09:20.110
  • DANIEL- Yeah
  • 00:09:20.150 --> 00:09:21.220
  • REINHARD- And Luis Graf passed that fire that he had, he
  • 00:09:21.260 --> 00:09:24.130
  • passed it on to my family. I was of course, not born at that
  • 00:09:24.170 --> 00:09:31.020
  • time. But that fire reached me as well through my parents. And
  • 00:09:31.060 --> 00:09:38.090
  • the Lord called me into the ministry when I was just a boy
  • 00:09:38.130 --> 00:09:41.290
  • of 10 years of age. So I can see how everything was laid out. And
  • 00:09:42.030 --> 00:09:48.070
  • by the grace of God, I was able to step into that ready-made
  • 00:09:48.110 --> 00:09:53.010
  • plan of God. When, at the end of World War II, I was just four
  • 00:09:53.050 --> 00:09:59.130
  • years of age, we had to flee from the approaching Soviet
  • 00:09:59.170 --> 00:10:04.060
  • army. We had to cross the Baltic Sea. The ship that we were have
  • 00:10:04.100 --> 00:10:09.240
  • to be on and couldn't get tickets any more, called the
  • 00:10:09.280 --> 00:10:13.220
  • Gustloff, was struck by a Soviet torpedo and sank, I think
  • 00:10:13.260 --> 00:10:21.090
  • with 12.000 people. They all perished. And we got on the next
  • 00:10:21.130 --> 00:10:26.260
  • boat trying to cross the Baltic from East Germany to Denmark.
  • 00:10:27.000 --> 00:10:34.120
  • And the ship on which we were, struck a sea mine and, and that
  • 00:10:34.160 --> 00:10:41.190
  • big ship began to tilt, and I heard the screams of the people.
  • 00:10:41.230 --> 00:10:50.250
  • Decades later in my dreams I head those screams. But then suddenly a miracle happened.
  • 00:10:50.290 --> 00:10:57.270
  • The, the ship came back into the proper position and the captain
  • 00:10:58.010 --> 00:11:03.240
  • announced that the pumps were coping with the in-flow of
  • 00:11:03.280 --> 00:11:09.180
  • water. We made it to the Danish coast,
  • 00:11:09.220 --> 00:11:13.120
  • DANIEL- Wow
  • 00:11:13.160 --> 00:11:15.090
  • REINHARD- and survived. But I've been asking myself many times how the Lord and why the
  • 00:11:15.130 --> 00:11:21.130
  • Lord protected us. And I've come to the conclusion it's because I
  • 00:11:21.170 --> 00:11:28.250
  • was on it. God knew I would go to Africa. God knew I would
  • 00:11:28.290 --> 00:11:34.220
  • preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And I believe that
  • 00:11:34.260 --> 00:11:38.230
  • this was such a wonderful, wonderful calling that, that the
  • 00:11:38.270 --> 00:11:45.240
  • Lord could not see it drown in the Ostsee, the Baltic Sea.
  • 00:11:45.280 --> 00:11:53.170
  • DANIEL- And that's a perfect segue, because for those
  • 00:11:53.210 --> 00:11:56.020
  • that don't know about the life of Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke,
  • 00:11:56.060 --> 00:11:59.050
  • he eventually went on to go to Africa and to see nations. Is that fair to say nations shaken,
  • 00:11:59.090 --> 00:12:04.130
  • REINHARD- Absolutely
  • 00:12:04.170 --> 00:12:05.130
  • DANIEL- by the power of the Gospel.
  • 00:12:05.170 --> 00:12:07.000
  • REINHARD- Absolutely, yes.
  • 00:12:07.040 --> 00:12:08.170
  • DANIEL- And I want to give you just a little glimpse
  • 00:12:08.210 --> 00:12:10.110
  • into how that all began. And I think you're gonna be amazed by this. Watch.
  • 00:12:10.150 --> 00:12:13.050
  • (Music)
  • 00:12:13.090 --> 00:12:15.190
  • NARRATOR-Africa shall be saved. (Music and crowd noise)
  • 00:12:15.230 --> 00:12:21.160
  • That one statement, that singular vision
  • 00:12:21.200 --> 00:12:24.120
  • brought about this spectacular sight. (Music and crowd noise)
  • 00:12:24.160 --> 00:12:34.000
  • But the ministry of Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke didn't begin
  • 00:12:34.040 --> 00:12:37.170
  • with such a awesome display of humanity as this. It started off
  • 00:12:37.210 --> 00:12:42.050
  • in Lesotho, Southern Africa.
  • 00:12:42.090 --> 00:12:46.000
  • As a young German missionary, Reinhard Bonnke with his family,
  • 00:12:46.040 --> 00:12:49.080
  • went to the people of Lesotho and began preaching, sometimes
  • 00:12:49.120 --> 00:12:53.160
  • to only five people. But after a dream where he saw the continent
  • 00:12:53.200 --> 00:12:59.240
  • of Africa washed in the blood of Jesus, Reinhard was determined
  • 00:12:59.280 --> 00:13:04.170
  • to spread the Gospel from Cape Town to Cairo. With
  • 00:13:04.210 --> 00:13:09.290
  • perseverance, those five people turned into hundreds of
  • 00:13:10.030 --> 00:13:13.220
  • thousands. Reinhard's ministry eventually moved to
  • 00:13:13.260 --> 00:13:18.200
  • Johannesburg, South Africa, and this was the place where Christ
  • 00:13:18.240 --> 00:13:23.070
  • for all Nations was birthed. A gospel meeting at the National
  • 00:13:23.110 --> 00:13:29.110
  • Stadium in Gaborone, Botswana became the launch pad for future
  • 00:13:29.150 --> 00:13:33.150
  • crusades. The awesome miracles and out pouring of the Holy
  • 00:13:33.190 --> 00:13:38.140
  • Spirit completely altered CFAN and became the blueprint
  • 00:13:38.180 --> 00:13:43.150
  • for Reinhard's future ministry.
  • 00:13:43.190 --> 00:13:45.130
  • Reinhard continued preaching and soon found that the campaigns
  • 00:13:45.170 --> 00:13:49.220
  • had reached a level where he needed a tent to seat 10.000
  • 00:13:49.260 --> 00:13:53.100
  • people. This endeavor became reality and the tent was
  • 00:13:53.140 --> 00:13:58.240
  • affectionately called the Yellow Tent. The size of the campaigns
  • 00:13:58.280 --> 00:14:02.200
  • grew and so did the reputation of Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke as
  • 00:14:02.240 --> 00:14:08.150
  • more and more people were saved and incredible miracles took
  • 00:14:08.190 --> 00:14:12.180
  • place. CFAN outgrew the Yellow Tent and the Big Tent was built.
  • 00:14:12.220 --> 00:14:20.020
  • It seated over 30.000 people, the largest movable structure
  • 00:14:20.060 --> 00:14:25.030
  • built to date, according to the Guinness Book of Records. But
  • 00:14:25.070 --> 00:14:29.260
  • despite the huge milestone that the Big Tent was, it was
  • 00:14:30.000 --> 00:14:33.050
  • destroyed by fierce winds shortly after it was erected.
  • 00:14:33.090 --> 00:14:37.190
  • The era of open-air crusades was thus born. In the next few
  • 00:14:37.230 --> 00:14:46.040
  • months, crowds swelled to over 100.000. But because of the
  • 00:14:46.080 --> 00:14:51.190
  • political turmoil in South Africa at that time, the Lord
  • 00:14:51.230 --> 00:14:56.070
  • directed Reinhard to move the CFAN headquarters out of Africa
  • 00:14:56.110 --> 00:15:01.000
  • altogether. To fulfill the vision of a Blood washed Africa,
  • 00:15:01.040 --> 00:15:06.200
  • the CFAN team had to re-locate to Frankfurt, Germany. Again
  • 00:15:06.240 --> 00:15:11.250
  • this proved to be another launch pad to reach Africa as never
  • 00:15:11.290 --> 00:15:16.200
  • before. The crowds continued to grow. Despite many challenges
  • 00:15:16.240 --> 00:15:22.270
  • and difficulties over the years, the great gospel crusades grew
  • 00:15:23.010 --> 00:15:28.070
  • bigger and bigger, attracting crowds of up to 500.000 people
  • 00:15:28.110 --> 00:15:34.120
  • in a single meeting. And then during the millennium crusade
  • 00:15:34.160 --> 00:15:39.250
  • in Lagos, Nigeria, Reinhard preached to over 1.6 million
  • 00:15:39.290 --> 00:15:47.160
  • people in a single service.
  • 00:15:47.200 --> 00:15:51.270
  • Christ for all Nations continues to plunder hell to populate
  • 00:15:52.010 --> 00:15:56.120
  • heaven. Africa IS being saved.
  • 00:15:56.160 --> 00:16:00.240
  • (Crowd noise)

  • 00:17:22.070 --> 00:17:26.240
  • DANIEL- So my friend, what I want to ask you to do
  • 00:17:26.280 --> 00:17:29.030
  • today is not to buy a book or to buy a product, I want to ask you
  • 00:17:29.070 --> 00:17:32.090
  • to stand with the soul-winning ministry of Christ for all
  • 00:17:32.130 --> 00:17:35.160
  • Nations as we continue to go from nation to nation, not only
  • 00:17:35.200 --> 00:17:38.180
  • in Africa, but all over the world. In fact, lately we've been doing crusades in America.
  • 00:17:38.220 --> 00:17:45.020
  • The Lord has spoken to Evangelist Bonnke about seeing
  • 00:17:45.060 --> 00:17:47.020
  • that same wave of salvation across the United States and
  • 00:17:47.060 --> 00:17:50.230
  • around the world. And so I want to ask you today to become a
  • 00:17:50.270 --> 00:17:54.110
  • monthly ministry partner. When you do that, I'm gonna send you
  • 00:17:54.150 --> 00:17:56.220
  • a copy of Evangelist Bonnke's autobiography, Living a Life of
  • 00:17:56.260 --> 00:18:00.140
  • Fire. Not only that, he has agreed to sign these for you
  • 00:18:00.180 --> 00:18:03.100
  • today. So you're gonna get your own signed copy by Evangelist
  • 00:18:03.140 --> 00:18:07.020
  • Bonnke. And then today, only today now, I can't do this
  • 00:18:07.060 --> 00:18:10.010
  • beyond today's offer, but I'm gonna send you this DVD called
  • 00:18:10.050 --> 00:18:13.100
  • Up Close and Personal, which was a round table discussion with
  • 00:18:13.140 --> 00:18:16.250
  • not only Evangelist Bonnke, but Peter Van den Berg and leaders
  • 00:18:16.290 --> 00:18:20.150
  • of the ministry that have been here for many of them over

  • ministry, especially in the early days. And you will be
  • 00:18:34.060 --> 00:18:37.180
  • absolutely inspired. Both of these are yours today. I'm gonna
  • 00:18:37.220 --> 00:18:41.050
  • rush them to you when you sign up to become a monthly ministry
  • 00:18:41.090 --> 00:18:44.220
  • partner of Christ for all Nations. And my friend, listen,
  • 00:18:44.260 --> 00:18:47.170
  • when you do that, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that
  • 00:18:47.210 --> 00:18:50.190
  • you are helping as we continue to reach the world for Jesus,
  • 00:18:50.230 --> 00:18:54.110
  • Amen; millions and millions of people. Evangelist Bonnke, you
  • 00:18:54.150 --> 00:18:59.260
  • started out as a missionary in Lesotho,
  • 00:19:00.020 --> 00:19:02.080
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:19:02.120 --> 00:19:03.080
  • DANIEL- in southern Africa.
  • 00:19:03.120 --> 00:19:04.230
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:19:04.270 --> 00:19:06.010
  • DANIEL- And through a series of events, the Lord led
  • 00:19:06.050 --> 00:19:07.180
  • you to found the ministry of Christ for all Nations.
  • 00:19:07.220 --> 00:19:09.160
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:19:09.200 --> 00:19:10.200
  • DANIEL- and then eventually these enormous
  • 00:19:10.240 --> 00:19:12.080
  • crusades began happening. I have to ask you this because those
  • 00:19:12.120 --> 00:19:14.140
  • that have watched, have just seen that picture of that
  • 00:19:14.180 --> 00:19:18.060
  • massive crusade crowd in Lagos, Nigeria.
  • 00:19:18.100 --> 00:19:22.060
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:19:22.100 --> 00:19:23.070
  • DANIEL- Tell us about those meetings.
  • 00:19:23.110 --> 00:19:24.250
  • REINHARD- Well that was something I had never seen
  • 00:19:24.290 --> 00:19:27.250
  • before or after. I believe it's still going to repeat itself in
  • 00:19:27.290 --> 00:19:32.090
  • a much greater form. But in the city of Lagos in the year 2000
  • 00:19:32.130 --> 00:19:38.220
  • during our millennium crusade, I preached to 1.600.000 people in
  • 00:19:38.260 --> 00:19:46.170
  • a single service. And when they counted the decision cards from
  • 00:19:46.210 --> 00:19:53.200
  • that one service, I got the number of 1.091.271.
  • 00:19:53.240 --> 00:20:03.170
  • DANIEL- Wow
  • 00:20:03.210 --> 00:20:04.250
  • REINHARD- And during those five days of meetings in
  • 00:20:04.290 --> 00:20:09.250
  • total, we had 3.4 million people complete a decision card to
  • 00:20:09.290 --> 00:20:16.180
  • receive Jesus Christ as their Savior.
  • 00:20:16.220 --> 00:20:19.200
  • DANIEL- Wow
  • 00:20:19.240 --> 00:20:20.280
  • REINHARD- That gripped me so much because I suddenly
  • 00:20:21.020 --> 00:20:23.020
  • realized what I hadn't seen God do in, in the twenty years
  • 00:20:23.060 --> 00:20:28.250
  • earlier, put together, I saw him do within five days.
  • 00:20:28.290 --> 00:20:37.210
  • DANIEL- Wow
  • 00:20:37.250 --> 00:20:39.000
  • REINHARD- That is the proof to me that our God is well
  • 00:20:39.040 --> 00:20:41.100
  • able to shrink time. No matter where, He is the same. And if we
  • 00:20:41.140 --> 00:20:48.020
  • move out in faith, we will see it in Africa, we will see it in
  • 00:20:48.060 --> 00:20:53.140
  • America, in Europe, in Asia, anywhere.
  • 00:20:53.180 --> 00:20:57.200
  • DANIEL- Yeah. One of the hallmarks of your ministry and
  • 00:20:57.240 --> 00:21:00.150
  • of Christ for all Nations has been the miraculous,
  • 00:21:00.190 --> 00:21:02.280
  • REINHARD- Yes.
  • 00:21:03.020 --> 00:21:04.130
  • DANIEL- and the heal, the prayer for the sick, the
  • 00:21:04.170 --> 00:21:06.180
  • healing of the sick, which we know Jesus does. Here in a few
  • 00:21:06.220 --> 00:21:08.190
  • minutes we're gonna pray for these prayer requests and I
  • 00:21:08.230 --> 00:21:11.150
  • believe that the Lord is gonna touch people even through this
  • 00:21:11.190 --> 00:21:15.010
  • television show today. Do you believe that?
  • 00:21:15.050 --> 00:21:17.020
  • REINHARD- Absolutely, yes. Absolutely, he will.
  • 00:21:17.060 --> 00:21:19.050
  • DANIEL- Yes, Amen.
  • 00:21:19.090 --> 00:21:20.060
  • REINHARD- because he answers prayer.
  • 00:21:20.100 --> 00:21:23.070
  • DANIEL- Yeah, in Jesus's name.
  • 00:21:23.110 --> 00:21:25.020
  • REINHARD- Hallelujah.
  • 00:21:25.060 --> 00:21:26.180
  • DANIEL- We have seen, you have seen people raised from the dead,
  • 00:21:26.220 --> 00:21:28.140
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:21:28.180 --> 00:21:29.220
  • DANIEL- the cripples healed, the blind eyes opened,
  • 00:21:29.260 --> 00:21:30.250
  • REINHARD- Absolutely
  • 00:21:30.290 --> 00:21:31.250
  • DANIEL- deaf ears opened,
  • 00:21:31.290 --> 00:21:33.060
  • REINHARD- Amen
  • 00:21:33.100 --> 00:21:34.150
  • DANIEL- and we continue to see it all the time. That's
  • 00:21:34.190 --> 00:21:36.060
  • not because we're great, not because of Evangelist Bonnke or
  • 00:21:36.100 --> 00:21:38.060
  • myself, but that's because of Jesus. And so, today, you can
  • 00:21:38.100 --> 00:21:40.060
  • see, right here on this table we have prayer requests that have been sent in from many of you.
  • 00:21:40.100 --> 00:21:44.260
  • The number is still there on your screen. You are still
  • 00:21:45.000 --> 00:21:47.070
  • welcome to call in. We'll continue to pray for those. But
  • 00:21:47.110 --> 00:21:49.120
  • right now, I'm gonna ask Evangelist Bonnke, and we are
  • 00:21:49.160 --> 00:21:52.180
  • just gonna pray for you. And I believe that the Lord's gonna
  • 00:21:52.220 --> 00:21:54.290
  • touch you and you're gonna receive right now, in Jesus's
  • 00:21:55.030 --> 00:21:57.170
  • name. Pastor Bonnke, would you lead us?
  • 00:21:57.210 --> 00:21:59.200
  • REINHARD- Yes, I will, I will. (Music) Heavenly Father, we speak in faith the Spirit of
  • 00:21:59.240 --> 00:22:08.150
  • the Lord is upon us, for he has anointed us to preach the Gospel
  • 00:22:08.190 --> 00:22:14.230
  • to the poor, to heal the broken hearted, and to set the captives free.

  • 00:22:21.040 --> 00:22:22.070

  • 00:22:22.110 --> 00:22:25.250
  • everyone on who's, on who's requests we are laying our hands will be healed and delivered.
  • 00:22:25.290 --> 00:22:35.130
  • DANIEL- Yes, Lord Jesus
  • 00:22:35.170 --> 00:22:36.230
  • REINHARD- Bondage will be broken,
  • 00:22:36.270 --> 00:22:39.090
  • DANIEL- Yes
  • 00:22:39.130 --> 00:22:40.180
  • REINHARD- chains will crash, evil will pass. Oh Lord,
  • 00:22:40.220 --> 00:22:43.160
  • I thank you, families will come together, marriages will come
  • 00:22:43.200 --> 00:22:47.210
  • together again. I pray for lost children to be found, sons and
  • 00:22:47.250 --> 00:22:52.240
  • daughters to be saved who are not yet children of God. Lord,
