  • 00:00:03.100 --> 00:00:06.240
  • (MUSIC STARTS) Coming up on Christ for all Nations...
  • 00:00:09.010 --> 00:00:13.170
  • REINHARD BONNKE- Luis Graf passed that fire that he had,
  • 00:00:13.180 --> 00:00:17.050
  • on to my family. The Lord called me into the ministry when I was
  • 00:00:17.060 --> 00:00:21.140
  • just a boy of 10 years of age.
  • 00:00:21.150 --> 00:00:24.070
  • So I can see how everything was laid out. And by the grace of
  • 00:00:24.080 --> 00:00:28.070
  • God, I was able to step into that ready-made plan of God.
  • 00:00:28.080 --> 00:00:33.180
  • (Music)
  • 00:00:33.190 --> 00:00:43.020
  • REINHARD BONNKE- He has come to break every chain and to
  • 00:00:43.030 --> 00:00:46.010
  • unlock every prison door.
  • 00:00:46.020 --> 00:00:49.190
  • DANIEL- He turns darkness into light.
  • 00:00:51.130 --> 00:00:55.210
  • He turns sin into salvation.
  • 00:00:55.220 --> 00:00:57.170
  • He turns bondage into freedom.
  • 00:00:57.180 --> 00:01:00.220
  • And He changes us from the inside out.
  • 00:01:00.230 --> 00:01:03.130
  • (Music)
  • 00:01:03.140 --> 00:01:13.190
  • DANIEL- Hello everyone, and welcome to another broadcast
  • 00:01:13.200 --> 00:01:16.100
  • of Christ for all Nations. I'm Daniel Kolenda, and it's my joy
  • 00:01:16.110 --> 00:01:19.260
  • to host you today on this very special broadcast. I want to
  • 00:01:19.270 --> 00:01:23.250
  • encourage you right now at the beginning of the show to get in
  • 00:01:23.260 --> 00:01:27.130
  • touch with us. There is contact information right there on
  • 00:01:27.140 --> 00:01:29.210
  • your screen and this is very important because we believe
  • 00:01:29.220 --> 00:01:32.190
  • that this show is interactive.
  • 00:01:32.200 --> 00:01:34.130
  • And we are going to be praying for your prayer requests today
  • 00:01:34.140 --> 00:01:37.050
  • at the end. We're gonna lay our hands on them and I believe that
  • 00:01:37.060 --> 00:01:40.000
  • the same power of the Holy Spirit that we have seen flowing
  • 00:01:40.010 --> 00:01:43.050
  • around the world is going to flow today on this broadcast to
  • 00:01:43.060 --> 00:01:46.200
  • you, and you're gonna be touched and blessed. But also, I
  • 00:01:46.210 --> 00:01:50.100
  • also have some very special information to share with you at
  • 00:01:50.110 --> 00:01:53.060
  • the end of the broadcast, so make sure that you stick around.
  • 00:01:53.070 --> 00:01:55.250
  • Now it's my great joy today to introduce to you somebody who
  • 00:01:55.260 --> 00:02:00.120
  • here at Christ for all Nations really needs no introduction. He
  • 00:02:00.130 --> 00:02:02.250
  • is the founder of the ministry of Christ for all Nations. More
  • 00:02:02.260 --> 00:02:05.280
  • than 40 years ago he left his German roots in Germany and went
  • 00:02:05.290 --> 00:02:11.050
  • to Lesotho, a southern African nation as a missionary. And the
  • 00:02:11.060 --> 00:02:14.190
  • rest is history. Today, I'm going to be talking to him about
  • 00:02:14.200 --> 00:02:18.030
  • his amazing life and about his amazing book about that life.
  • 00:02:18.040 --> 00:02:22.070
  • Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, thank you so much for being here today.
  • 00:02:22.080 --> 00:02:25.200
  • REINHARD- Yeah, thank you very much, Daniel.
  • 00:02:25.210 --> 00:02:27.160
  • DANIEL- It's always a joy to talk to you 'cause I love
  • 00:02:27.170 --> 00:02:29.140
  • to hear the stories of what God did in your life.
  • 00:02:29.150 --> 00:02:32.100
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:02:32.110 --> 00:02:33.160
  • DANIEL- And one of the things about your book that
  • 00:02:33.170 --> 00:02:35.080
  • amazed me is that those stories didn't just begin when you went into the ministry.
  • 00:02:35.090 --> 00:02:39.170
  • REINHARD- No, no
  • 00:02:39.180 --> 00:02:41.080
  • DANIEL- The amazing stories went on from even before you were born.
  • 00:02:41.090 --> 00:02:44.110
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:02:44.120 --> 00:02:45.220
  • DANIEL- Would you just mind sharing with us how it
  • 00:02:45.230 --> 00:02:48.110
  • happened, how the Holy Spirit broke into the Bonnke family.
  • 00:02:48.120 --> 00:02:50.110
  • REINHARD- Yes, yes, my father was a pastor and when I
  • 00:02:50.120 --> 00:02:54.100
  • was a teenager, one day I, I had a look at our family tree and
  • 00:02:54.110 --> 00:03:01.150
  • discovered that the Bonnke clan consisted mostly of unbelievers,
  • 00:03:01.160 --> 00:03:09.200
  • people who didn't believe in Jesus Christ. And I was so
  • 00:03:09.210 --> 00:03:15.240
  • amazed. I said to my father, I said, how did God break into
  • 00:03:15.250 --> 00:03:22.000
  • our family. When I think of my grandfather and of you, who are
  • 00:03:22.010 --> 00:03:27.060
  • such strong men of faith, how is it possible that, that, that the
  • 00:03:27.070 --> 00:03:34.030
  • Lord did something so wonderful in your life. And my father told
  • 00:03:34.040 --> 00:03:38.150
  • me a story that has really had a mighty effect on my whole life.
  • 00:03:38.160 --> 00:03:44.090
  • He said to me that in 1922, my grandfather, his name was August Bonnke, was very, very sick.
  • 00:03:44.100 --> 00:03:54.080
  • They lived in, somewhere in East Germany, Ostpreusen, was
  • 00:03:54.090 --> 00:04:01.260
  • the province, East Prussia, in a very forested area,
  • 00:04:01.270 --> 00:04:09.280
  • agricultural, and so on and so on. And my grandfather was so
  • 00:04:09.290 --> 00:04:14.150
  • sick he screamed day and night for pain. Doctors couldn't find
  • 00:04:14.160 --> 00:04:21.010
  • what was wrong with him. They couldn't diagnose him. There was
  • 00:04:21.020 --> 00:04:25.250
  • no medicine. There was no prayer. There was no hope. And
  • 00:04:25.260 --> 00:04:31.040
  • this went on week after week, and month after month,
  • 00:04:31.050 --> 00:04:36.110
  • and year after year; searing pains they called it. I mean
  • 00:04:36.120 --> 00:04:43.090
  • pains that were almost unbearable. And then one day a
  • 00:04:43.100 --> 00:04:49.110
  • miracle happened. An American missionary from Springfield,
  • 00:04:49.120 --> 00:04:55.110
  • Missouri, lost his way in the forest and came to our village.
  • 00:04:55.120 --> 00:05:04.040
  • And as those early missionaries and evangelists worked in those
  • 00:05:04.050 --> 00:05:10.000
  • days, their first question was when they came to a new village
  • 00:05:10.010 --> 00:05:15.110
  • or town, is there anybody sick in this area? And people said,
  • 00:05:15.120 --> 00:05:20.210
  • oh, yes, somebody is very sick here. As a matter of fact you
  • 00:05:20.220 --> 00:05:26.010
  • can hear him scream. And this American missionary's name
  • 00:05:26.020 --> 00:05:32.270
  • was Luis Graf. He heard my grandfather scream, and somehow
  • 00:05:32.280 --> 00:05:41.280
  • the compassion and mercy of God filled his heart and he knew why
  • 00:05:41.290 --> 00:05:49.030
  • he had lost his way. The Holy Spirit had brought him right
  • 00:05:49.040 --> 00:05:53.140
  • here and some wonderful deliverance would take place. So
  • 00:05:53.150 --> 00:06:00.250
  • to cut a long story short, they took him to my grandfather's
  • 00:06:00.260 --> 00:06:04.110
  • house. He was lying in bed, writhing in pain. My grandmother
  • 00:06:04.120 --> 00:06:10.100
  • was there. He started to preach the Gospel. He told them about
  • 00:06:10.110 --> 00:06:16.020
  • Jesus, how Jesus saves, how Jesus heals. And then he stepped
  • 00:06:16.030 --> 00:06:22.060
  • forward and said, I have been sent to demonstrate the power of
  • 00:06:22.070 --> 00:06:30.230
  • the Holy Spirit. He grabbed the hand of my grandfather, and a
  • 00:06:30.240 --> 00:06:36.130
  • jolt of power went through the body of my sick grandfather. He
  • 00:06:36.140 --> 00:06:45.200
  • jumped out of bed, completely healed. He looked at himself,
  • 00:06:45.210 --> 00:06:52.050
  • those swollen wrists and ankles, and, and joints were smooth, and
  • 00:06:52.060 --> 00:07:00.250
  • pain free. And he hardly could, could believe it. He was
  • 00:07:00.260 --> 00:07:06.120
  • jumping. He was screaming. He was weeping. He was dancing
  • 00:07:06.130 --> 00:07:10.180
  • together with grandma, and praising God for this wonderful
  • 00:07:10.190 --> 00:07:16.270
  • miracle that He had done. My grandfather and my grandmother
  • 00:07:16.280 --> 00:07:22.170
  • received Jesus that day. But Luis Graf said, I'm not done
  • 00:07:22.180 --> 00:07:29.120
  • yet. He said, you still need to receive the baptism into the
  • 00:07:29.130 --> 00:07:34.250
  • Holy Spirit. My grandparents had never heard of any, anything
  • 00:07:34.260 --> 00:07:41.090
  • like that, but they were now ready to receive anything that
  • 00:07:41.100 --> 00:07:47.050
  • was mentioned. And Luis Graf laid his hands on them, and the
  • 00:07:47.060 --> 00:07:52.120
  • power of God fell on both and they broke out in new tongues,
  • 00:07:52.130 --> 00:07:58.030
  • praising Jesus. And, and they were filled with the fire and the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:07:58.040 --> 00:08:06.270
  • That's how God broke into the Bonnke family.
  • 00:08:06.280 --> 00:08:13.060
  • DANIEL- And then you were born, what?
  • 00:08:13.070 --> 00:08:15.020
  • REINHARD- I was born 18 years later.
  • 00:08:15.030 --> 00:08:17.090
  • DANIEL- Amazing
  • 00:08:17.100 --> 00:08:18.170
  • REINHARD- I never met that man. But I believe with all
  • 00:08:18.180 --> 00:08:22.120
  • of my heart that when Luis Graf entered the house of my
  • 00:08:22.130 --> 00:08:26.250
  • ancestors, that the Holy Spirit put the thread through my
  • 00:08:26.260 --> 00:08:32.120
  • needle. And that explains so many other happenings later in
  • 00:08:32.130 --> 00:08:39.000
  • my life. It was, it was all pre-ordained, and I am ever so
  • 00:08:39.010 --> 00:08:48.160
  • glad that I was able to connect with Luis Graf. And then of
  • 00:08:48.170 --> 00:08:53.090
  • course, my father later and begun to serve the Lord.
  • 00:08:53.100 --> 00:08:58.020
  • DANIEL- It's amazing to me how that early experience,
  • 00:08:58.030 --> 00:09:01.100
  • even before you were born, was like the seed. It was almost
  • 00:09:01.110 --> 00:09:04.180
  • like a prophetic sign of what your life would be,
  • 00:09:04.190 --> 00:09:08.130
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:09:08.140 --> 00:09:09.170
  • DANIEL- miracles, baptism in the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:09:09.180 --> 00:09:11.050
  • REINHARD- Everything
  • 00:09:11.060 --> 00:09:12.050
  • DANIEL- preaching of the Gospel,
  • 00:09:12.060 --> 00:09:13.210
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:09:13.220 --> 00:09:14.210
  • DANIEL- even before you were born.
  • 00:09:14.220 --> 00:09:16.090
  • REINHARD- Yes, absolutely; but also is very
  • 00:09:16.100 --> 00:09:18.060
  • clear to me that the Lord knew what He did.
  • 00:09:18.070 --> 00:09:20.190
  • DANIEL- Yeah
  • 00:09:20.200 --> 00:09:21.290
  • REINHARD- And Luis Graf passed that fire that he had, he
  • 00:09:22.000 --> 00:09:24.210
  • passed it on to my family. I was of course, not born at that
  • 00:09:24.220 --> 00:09:31.100
  • time. But that fire reached me as well through my parents. And
  • 00:09:31.110 --> 00:09:38.170
  • the Lord called me into the ministry when I was just a boy
  • 00:09:38.180 --> 00:09:42.070
  • of 10 years of age. So I can see how everything was laid out. And
  • 00:09:42.080 --> 00:09:48.150
  • by the grace of God, I was able to step into that ready-made
  • 00:09:48.160 --> 00:09:53.090
  • plan of God. When, at the end of World War II, I was just four
  • 00:09:53.100 --> 00:09:59.210
  • years of age, we had to flee from the approaching Soviet
  • 00:09:59.220 --> 00:10:04.140
  • army. We had to cross the Baltic Sea. The ship that we were have
  • 00:10:04.150 --> 00:10:10.020
  • to be on and couldn't get tickets any more, called the
  • 00:10:10.030 --> 00:10:14.000
  • Gustloff, was struck by a Soviet torpedo and sank, I think
  • 00:10:14.010 --> 00:10:21.170
  • with 12.000 people. They all perished. And we got on the next
  • 00:10:21.180 --> 00:10:27.040
  • boat trying to cross the Baltic from East Germany to Denmark.
  • 00:10:27.050 --> 00:10:34.200
  • And the ship on which we were, struck a sea mine and, and that
  • 00:10:34.210 --> 00:10:41.270
  • big ship began to tilt, and I heard the screams of the people.
  • 00:10:41.280 --> 00:10:51.030
  • Decades later in my dreams I head those screams. But then suddenly a miracle happened.
  • 00:10:51.040 --> 00:10:58.050
  • The, the ship came back into the proper position and the captain
  • 00:10:58.060 --> 00:11:04.020
  • announced that the pumps were coping with the in-flow of
  • 00:11:04.030 --> 00:11:09.260
  • water. We made it to the Danish coast,
  • 00:11:09.270 --> 00:11:13.200
  • DANIEL- Wow
  • 00:11:13.210 --> 00:11:15.150
  • REINHARD- and survived. But I've been asking myself many times how the Lord and why the
  • 00:11:15.160 --> 00:11:21.210
  • Lord protected us. And I've come to the conclusion it's because I
  • 00:11:21.220 --> 00:11:29.030
  • was on it. God knew I would go to Africa. God knew I would
  • 00:11:29.040 --> 00:11:35.000
  • preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And I believe that
  • 00:11:35.010 --> 00:11:39.010
  • this was such a wonderful, wonderful calling that, that the
  • 00:11:39.020 --> 00:11:46.020
  • Lord could not see it drown in the Ostsee, the Baltic Sea.
  • 00:11:46.030 --> 00:11:53.250
  • DANIEL- And that's a perfect segue, because for those
  • 00:11:53.260 --> 00:11:56.100
  • that don't know about the life of Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke,
  • 00:11:56.110 --> 00:11:59.130
  • he eventually went on to go to Africa and to see nations. Is that fair to say nations shaken,
  • 00:11:59.140 --> 00:12:04.210
  • REINHARD- Absolutely
  • 00:12:04.220 --> 00:12:05.210
  • DANIEL- by the power of the Gospel.
  • 00:12:05.220 --> 00:12:07.080
  • REINHARD- Absolutely, yes.
  • 00:12:07.090 --> 00:12:08.250
  • DANIEL- And I want to give you just a little glimpse
  • 00:12:08.260 --> 00:12:10.190
  • into how that all began. And I think you're gonna be amazed by this. Watch.
  • 00:12:10.200 --> 00:12:13.130
  • (Music)
  • 00:12:13.140 --> 00:12:15.270
  • NARRATOR-Africa shall be saved. (Music and crowd noise)
  • 00:12:15.280 --> 00:12:21.240
  • That one statement, that singular vision
  • 00:12:21.250 --> 00:12:24.200
  • brought about this spectacular sight. (Music and crowd noise)
  • 00:12:24.210 --> 00:12:34.080
  • But the ministry of Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke didn't begin
  • 00:12:34.090 --> 00:12:37.250
  • with such a awesome display of humanity as this. It started off
  • 00:12:37.260 --> 00:12:42.130
  • in Lesotho, Southern Africa.
  • 00:12:42.140 --> 00:12:46.080
  • As a young German missionary, Reinhard Bonnke with his family,
  • 00:12:46.090 --> 00:12:49.160
  • went to the people of Lesotho and began preaching, sometimes
  • 00:12:49.170 --> 00:12:53.240
  • to only five people. But after a dream where he saw the continent
  • 00:12:53.250 --> 00:13:00.040
  • of Africa washed in the blood of Jesus, Reinhard was determined
  • 00:13:00.050 --> 00:13:04.250
  • to spread the Gospel from Cape Town to Cairo. With
  • 00:13:04.260 --> 00:13:10.070
  • perseverance, those five people turned into hundreds of
  • 00:13:10.080 --> 00:13:14.000
  • thousands. Reinhard's ministry eventually moved to
  • 00:13:14.010 --> 00:13:18.280
  • Johannesburg, South Africa, and this was the place where Christ
  • 00:13:18.290 --> 00:13:23.150
  • for all Nations was birthed. A gospel meeting at the National
  • 00:13:23.160 --> 00:13:29.190
  • Stadium in Gaborone, Botswana became the launch pad for future
  • 00:13:29.200 --> 00:13:33.230
  • crusades. The awesome miracles and out pouring of the Holy
  • 00:13:33.240 --> 00:13:38.220
  • Spirit completely altered CFAN and became the blueprint
  • 00:13:38.230 --> 00:13:43.230
  • for Reinhard's future ministry.
  • 00:13:43.240 --> 00:13:45.210
  • Reinhard continued preaching and soon found that the campaigns
  • 00:13:45.220 --> 00:13:50.000
  • had reached a level where he needed a tent to seat 10.000
  • 00:13:50.010 --> 00:13:53.180
  • people. This endeavor became reality and the tent was
  • 00:13:53.190 --> 00:13:59.020
  • affectionately called the Yellow Tent. The size of the campaigns
  • 00:13:59.030 --> 00:14:02.280
  • grew and so did the reputation of Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke as
  • 00:14:02.290 --> 00:14:08.230
  • more and more people were saved and incredible miracles took
  • 00:14:08.240 --> 00:14:12.260
  • place. CFAN outgrew the Yellow Tent and the Big Tent was built.
  • 00:14:12.270 --> 00:14:20.100
  • It seated over 30.000 people, the largest movable structure
  • 00:14:20.110 --> 00:14:25.110
  • built to date, according to the Guinness Book of Records. But
  • 00:14:25.120 --> 00:14:30.040
  • despite the huge milestone that the Big Tent was, it was
  • 00:14:30.050 --> 00:14:33.130
  • destroyed by fierce winds shortly after it was erected.
  • 00:14:33.140 --> 00:14:37.270
  • The era of open-air crusades was thus born. In the next few
  • 00:14:37.280 --> 00:14:46.120
  • months, crowds swelled to over 100.000. But because of the
  • 00:14:46.130 --> 00:14:51.270
  • political turmoil in South Africa at that time, the Lord
  • 00:14:51.280 --> 00:14:56.150
  • directed Reinhard to move the CFAN headquarters out of Africa
  • 00:14:56.160 --> 00:15:01.080
  • altogether. To fulfill the vision of a Blood washed Africa,
  • 00:15:01.090 --> 00:15:06.280
  • the CFAN team had to re-locate to Frankfurt, Germany. Again
  • 00:15:06.290 --> 00:15:12.030
  • this proved to be another launch pad to reach Africa as never
  • 00:15:12.040 --> 00:15:16.280
  • before. The crowds continued to grow. Despite many challenges
  • 00:15:16.290 --> 00:15:23.050
  • and difficulties over the years, the great gospel crusades grew
  • 00:15:23.060 --> 00:15:28.150
  • bigger and bigger, attracting crowds of up to 500.000 people
  • 00:15:28.160 --> 00:15:34.200
  • in a single meeting. And then during the millennium crusade
  • 00:15:34.210 --> 00:15:40.030
  • in Lagos, Nigeria, Reinhard preached to over 1.6 million
  • 00:15:40.040 --> 00:15:47.240
  • people in a single service.
  • 00:15:47.250 --> 00:15:52.050
  • Christ for all Nations continues to plunder hell to populate
  • 00:15:52.060 --> 00:15:56.200
  • heaven. Africa IS being saved.
  • 00:15:56.210 --> 00:16:00.290

  • DANIEL- So my friend, what I want to ask you to do
  • 00:17:27.030 --> 00:17:29.110
  • today is not to buy a book or to buy a product, I want to ask you

  • to stand with the soul-winning ministry of Christ for all
  • 00:17:32.180 --> 00:17:35.240
  • Nations as we continue to go from nation to nation, not only
  • 00:17:35.250 --> 00:17:38.260
  • in Africa, but all over the world. In fact, lately we've been doing crusades in America.
  • 00:17:38.270 --> 00:17:45.100
  • The Lord has spoken to Evangelist Bonnke about seeing
  • 00:17:45.110 --> 00:17:47.100
  • that same wave of salvation across the United States and
  • 00:17:47.110 --> 00:17:51.010
  • around the world. And so I want to ask you today to become a
  • 00:17:51.020 --> 00:17:54.190
  • monthly ministry partner. When you do that, I'm gonna send you
  • 00:17:54.200 --> 00:17:57.000

  • today. So you're gonna get your own signed copy by Evangelist

  • Bonnke. And then today, only today now, I can't do this
  • 00:18:07.110 --> 00:18:10.090
  • beyond today's offer, but I'm gonna send you this DVD called
  • 00:18:10.100 --> 00:18:13.180
  • Up Close and Personal, which was a round table discussion with
  • 00:18:13.190 --> 00:18:17.030
  • not only Evangelist Bonnke, but Peter Van den Berg and leaders
  • 00:18:17.040 --> 00:18:20.230

  • you are helping as we continue to reach the world for Jesus,
  • 00:18:50.280 --> 00:18:54.190
  • Amen; millions and millions of people. Evangelist Bonnke, you
  • 00:18:54.200 --> 00:19:00.060
  • started out as a missionary in Lesotho,
  • 00:19:00.070 --> 00:19:02.160
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:19:02.170 --> 00:19:03.160
  • DANIEL- in southern Africa.
  • 00:19:03.170 --> 00:19:05.010
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:19:05.020 --> 00:19:06.080
  • DANIEL- And through a series of events, the Lord led
  • 00:19:06.090 --> 00:19:07.260
  • you to found the ministry of Christ for all Nations.
  • 00:19:07.270 --> 00:19:09.240
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:19:09.250 --> 00:19:10.260
  • DANIEL- and then eventually these enormous
  • 00:19:10.270 --> 00:19:12.160
  • crusades began happening. I have to ask you this because those
  • 00:19:12.170 --> 00:19:14.220
  • that have watched, have just seen that picture of that
  • 00:19:14.230 --> 00:19:18.140
  • massive crusade crowd in Lagos, Nigeria.
  • 00:19:18.150 --> 00:19:22.140
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:19:22.150 --> 00:19:23.150
  • DANIEL- Tell us about those meetings.
  • 00:19:23.160 --> 00:19:25.030
  • REINHARD- Well that was something I had never seen
  • 00:19:25.040 --> 00:19:28.030
  • before or after. I believe it's still going to repeat itself in
  • 00:19:28.040 --> 00:19:32.170
  • a much greater form. But in the city of Lagos in the year 2000
  • 00:19:32.180 --> 00:19:39.000
  • during our millennium crusade, I preached to 1.600.000 people in
  • 00:19:39.010 --> 00:19:46.250
  • a single service. And when they counted the decision cards from
  • 00:19:46.260 --> 00:19:53.280
  • that one service, I got the number of 1.091.271.
  • 00:19:53.290 --> 00:20:03.250
  • DANIEL- Wow
  • 00:20:03.260 --> 00:20:05.020
  • REINHARD- And during those five days of meetings in
  • 00:20:05.030 --> 00:20:10.030
  • total, we had 3.4 million people complete a decision card to
  • 00:20:10.040 --> 00:20:16.260
  • receive Jesus Christ as their Savior.
  • 00:20:16.270 --> 00:20:19.280
  • DANIEL- Wow
  • 00:20:19.290 --> 00:20:21.050
  • REINHARD- That gripped me so much because I suddenly
  • 00:20:21.060 --> 00:20:23.100
  • realized what I hadn't seen God do in, in the twenty years
  • 00:20:23.110 --> 00:20:29.030
  • earlier, put together, I saw him do within five days.
  • 00:20:29.040 --> 00:20:37.290
  • DANIEL- Wow
  • 00:20:38.000 --> 00:20:39.070
  • REINHARD- That is the proof to me that our God is well
  • 00:20:39.080 --> 00:20:41.180
  • able to shrink time. No matter where, He is the same. And if we
  • 00:20:41.190 --> 00:20:48.100
  • move out in faith, we will see it in Africa, we will see it in
  • 00:20:48.110 --> 00:20:53.220
  • America, in Europe, in Asia, anywhere.
  • 00:20:53.230 --> 00:20:57.280
  • DANIEL- Yeah. One of the hallmarks of your ministry and
  • 00:20:57.290 --> 00:21:00.230
  • of Christ for all Nations has been the miraculous,
  • 00:21:00.240 --> 00:21:03.060
  • REINHARD- Yes.
  • 00:21:03.070 --> 00:21:04.210
  • DANIEL- and the heal, the prayer for the sick, the
  • 00:21:04.220 --> 00:21:06.260
  • healing of the sick, which we know Jesus does. Here in a few
  • 00:21:06.270 --> 00:21:08.270
  • minutes we're gonna pray for these prayer requests and I
  • 00:21:08.280 --> 00:21:11.230
  • believe that the Lord is gonna touch people even through this
  • 00:21:11.240 --> 00:21:15.090
  • television show today. Do you believe that?
  • 00:21:15.100 --> 00:21:17.100
  • REINHARD- Absolutely, yes. Absolutely, he will.
  • 00:21:17.110 --> 00:21:19.130
  • DANIEL- Yes, Amen.
  • 00:21:19.140 --> 00:21:20.130
  • REINHARD- because he answers prayer.
  • 00:21:20.140 --> 00:21:23.150
  • DANIEL- Yeah, in Jesus's name.
  • 00:21:23.160 --> 00:21:25.100
  • REINHARD- Hallelujah.
  • 00:21:25.110 --> 00:21:26.240
  • DANIEL- We have seen, you have seen people raised from the dead,
  • 00:21:26.250 --> 00:21:28.220
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:21:28.230 --> 00:21:29.290
  • DANIEL- the cripples healed, the blind eyes opened,
  • 00:21:30.000 --> 00:21:31.030
  • REINHARD- Absolutely
  • 00:21:31.040 --> 00:21:32.030
  • DANIEL- deaf ears opened,
  • 00:21:32.040 --> 00:21:33.140
  • REINHARD- Amen
  • 00:21:33.150 --> 00:21:34.220
  • DANIEL- and we continue to see it all the time. That's
  • 00:21:34.230 --> 00:21:36.140
  • not because we're great, not because of Evangelist Bonnke or
  • 00:21:36.150 --> 00:21:38.140
  • myself, but that's because of Jesus. And so, today, you can
  • 00:21:38.150 --> 00:21:40.140
  • see, right here on this table we have prayer requests that have been sent in from many of you.
  • 00:21:40.150 --> 00:21:45.040
  • The number is still there on your screen. You are still
  • 00:21:45.050 --> 00:21:47.150
  • welcome to call in. We'll continue to pray for those. But
  • 00:21:47.160 --> 00:21:49.200
  • right now, I'm gonna ask Evangelist Bonnke, and we are
  • 00:21:49.210 --> 00:21:52.260
  • just gonna pray for you. And I believe that the Lord's gonna
  • 00:21:52.270 --> 00:21:55.070
