“THE LORD HATH MADE BARE HIS HOLY ARM IN THE EYES OF ALL THE NATIONS;
ALL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH SHALL SEE THE SALVATION OF OUR GOD.”Isaiah 52:10
Glory to God Most High! Did you hear it? “ALL THE NATIONS SHALL SEE”! And HOW shall they see? I’ll tell you how – little satellite dishes are springing up all over the world! Even in southern Africa!
Yes, the GOOD NEWS we bring today is a NEW SATELLITE is bringing THE LIGHT to MILLIONS of new souls in Africa. In America, we call it DBS (direct broadcast satellite); in Europe, they call it DTH (direct-to-home); in Africa, it’s DSTV (direct satellite TV). I still call them ALL — DEVIL BUSTIN’ SATELLITE!
For years, I wondered how we would get the Gospel into every home, BILLIONS of them, from mud huts in Africa, to mansions in Beverly Hills. God had it figured out before the world was framed – technological “angels” in mid- heaven, beaming Jesus into homes and hearts around the world!
This new “angel’s” footprint covers Angola, Botswana, Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, and Zambia! Praise the Lord! And all of this is in addition to our other satellite that covers ALL of Africa, plus our 17 regular TV stations that reach millions more on old-fashioned rabbit ears! Reinhard Bonnke is right—
“ALL AFRICA SHALL BE SAVED!”
In fact, Reinhard’s program is on the satellite and is reaching multitudes, in addition to the millions we see him preaching to face-to-face! At the moment, 100 hours a week will bring TBN, plus some local African programs, to millions of new viewers. In a few months, we will have it 24 hours a day! Our thanks to Bernard Roebert, our station manager in South Africa for 16 years, and to his son Andre, who worked hard to bring this new light to Africa. Pray for them and our small staff who have worked through the years to bring TBN to many nations in Africa.
How we praise the Lord for new reports, like these, beginning to come in from all parts of Africa:
“Since TBN came on through DSTV, we hardly change the channel! Let’s just say we are hooked! LONG LIVE TBN to the glory of God, and to the shame of the devil!!!” —GHANA, WEST AFRICA
“I want you to know you saved my soul. I thought I would be saved being a Satanist. The devil blinded my eyes and nearly damned my soul. One night, I turned on TBN and saw your love for God. I cried my contacts out! That night I found Jesus and I burned my satanic bible. Thanks for introducing me to my Savior.” —Beth, 13 years old (no country given)
The testimonies are all so good I can hardly choose one, and they are pouring in from all over Africa and around the world—
“I accepted Christ as my Savior, and I would be grateful to receive literature to help me grow spiritually.” —KENYA, EAST AFRICA
“My name is Muezi. I’m petroleum engineer in Luanda, Angola, Africa. Was in Houston, USA for 18 months and TBN was our messenger. In year 2000, we return to Angola. I was sad because no TBN. But now we have TBN from South Africa! With TBN on TV, Angola will become more Christian. Dear Paul, Angola need your help for expansion of Jesus Christ Gospel!”
I could fill ten thousand newsletters, but please let me share just one more—
s is Zephaniah Chanda from Lusaka, Zambia, Central Africa. I just mailed to let you how that I gave my life to Lord Jesus through your ministry. I thank God for being alive! I am 20 year old young man who is serving the Lord in truth and Spirit. Amen.” —LUSAKA, ZAMBIA, CENTRAL AFRICA
Dear Partners, how can you sit down after reading these wonderful testimonies? I feel like running out onto the street and shouting the praises of God! But the one that sent me into heavenly orbit was this vision given by one of our dear partners here at home. Get ready because YOU are in this vision:
“Last night after watching Praise with Tommy Tenney and Juanita Bynum, I went to bed thinking about Brother Tenney as he bent down wiping the dust from your feet. The Spirit of the Lord magnified to me the burden you have carried running the ministry of TBN since its birth to the present. He made me aware of the adversity you have felt from the world and from other Christians.
Then the Lord showed me a clear vision of that Heavenly City, too beautiful to describe. It was so vast, as far as the eye could see, and shining bright and white. It was surrounded by a beautiful wall and gates. I saw you, Brother Paul, leading a multitude of people, too many to number, toward one of the gates, faces glowing with that same bright white light, with JOY unspeakable and full of glory!
I wanted to share this with you to encourage you today. I am thankful to have been a small part in supporting TBN along with all the others who have done so. We will be close behind you in that great multitude! God bless you!” —Bonita Bateman
Well, as you can imagine the tears of joy are flowing as I write this letter to you! Do you feel it – don’t you see it? The great FINAL HARVEST is pouring in! The Apostle Peter stood on the Day of Pentecost and said:
“THIS IS THAT WHICH WAS SPOKEN BY THE PROPHET JOEL….” Acts 2:16
He went on to declare that Pentecost was the “FORMER” rain. Praise God, 2,000 years later we can stand on WORLDWIDE television and declare that this is “THE LATTER RAIN” spoken by the Prophet Joel (Joel 2:23)! The great prophet of God goes on to command us of this generation—
“PUT YE IN THE SICKLE, FOR THE HARVEST IS RIPE…MULTITUDES, MULTITUDES IN THE VALLEY OF DECISION: FOR THE DAY OF THE LORD IS NEAR IN THE VALLEY OF DECISION.” Joel 3:13-14
Dearest Partners, what more is there to say? If ever we pulled out all the stops and went for it – IT IS NOW! The old song comes to mind: “We’re marching to Zion, beautiful beautiful Zion….” And our sister gave us a little glimpse of this great TBN family entering the gates! But until then, let’s “Let the LOWER LIGHTS keep burning”!
Jan and I love you, need you, and we bless you for your faithful support through the years. This is Praise-A-Thon® month. We will be looking for YOUR letter! Praise God, as we work together:
“ALL THE ENDS OF THE EARTH SHALL SEE THE SALVATION OF OUR GOD.”
Americans will never forget the heroes at Pearl Harbor, and on “9-11.” TBN Partners, you are a special kind of hero in God’s eyes.
Join us for Praise-A-Thon® April 1 - 5!
Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke preaches to multitudes in AFRICA, but NOW that audience has MULTIPLIED! His program and many other TBN programs are carried on DSTV (direct satellite TV in SOUTH AFRICA) – another “Devil Bustin’ Satellite” for AFRICA
DR. MANGOSUTHU BUTHELEZI, Zulu chief and a brother in the Lord,gave us a warm welcome on our visit to Africa. He helped us keep the door
OPEN for the Gospel and YOUR TBN in SOUTH AFRICA!!
YOUR TBN has a second SATELLITE NETWORK that features many church service programs 24 hours a day in the United States! People are being inspired and empowered by teachers and preachers like BISHOP T. D. JAKES. SATELLITE is the KEY to reaching our NATION!
