  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:07:32.811 --> 00:07:34.346
  • DANIEL-Those stories didn't just beginwhen you went into the ministry.
  • 00:07:34.479 --> 00:07:36.481
  • REINHARD- No, no
  • 00:07:36.615 --> 00:07:38.083
  • DANIEL- The amazingstories went on from evenbefore you were born.
  • 00:07:38.216 --> 00:07:40.919
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:07:41.052 --> 00:07:42.287
  • DANIEL- Would you justmind sharing with us how it
  • 00:07:42.420 --> 00:07:43.688
  • happened, how the Holy Spiritbroke into the Bonnke family.
  • 00:07:43.822 --> 00:07:47.025
  • REINHARD- Yes, yes, my fatherwas a pastor and when I was a
  • 00:07:47.158 --> 00:07:54.399
  • teenager, one day I, I had alook at our family tree and
  • 00:07:54.533 --> 00:08:01.139
  • discovered that the Bonnkeclan consisted mostly of
  • 00:08:01.273 --> 00:08:07.512
  • unbelievers, people who didn'tbelieve in Jesus Christ. And I
  • 00:08:07.646 --> 00:08:15.287
  • was so amazed. I said to myfather, I said, how did God
  • 00:08:15.420 --> 00:08:20.559
  • break into our family. When Ithink of my grandfather and of
  • 00:08:20.692 --> 00:08:25.230
  • you, who are such strong menof faith, how is it possible
  • 00:08:25.363 --> 00:08:31.703
  • that, that, that the Lord didsomething so wonderful in your
  • 00:08:31.836 --> 00:08:36.241
  • life. And my father told me astory that has really had a
  • 00:08:36.374 --> 00:08:40.879
  • mighty effect on my wholelife. He said to me that in
  • 00:08:41.012 --> 00:08:46.585
  • 1922, my grandfather, his namewas August Bonnke, was very,
  • 00:08:46.718 --> 00:08:52.123
  • very sick; searing pains theycalled it. I mean pains that
  • 00:08:52.257 --> 00:08:57.195
  • were almost unbearable.And then one day a miracle
  • 00:08:57.329 --> 00:09:03.368
  • happened. An Americanmissionary from Springfield,
  • 00:09:03.501 --> 00:09:09.307
  • Missouri, lost his way inthe forest and came to our
  • 00:09:09.441 --> 00:09:15.213
  • village. And as those earlymissionaries and evangelists
  • 00:09:15.347 --> 00:09:22.687
  • worked in those days, theirfirst question was when they
  • 00:09:22.821 --> 00:09:26.992
  • came to a new village or town,Is there anybody sick in this
  • 00:09:27.125 --> 00:09:32.497
  • area? And people said, Oh,yes, somebody is very sick
  • 00:09:32.631 --> 00:09:37.836
  • here. As a matter of fact, youcan hear him scream. And this
  • 00:09:37.969 --> 00:09:43.708
  • Americanmissionary's name was Luis Graf.He heard my grandfather scream,
  • 00:09:43.842 --> 00:09:52.617
  • The Holy Spirit hadbrought him right here and
  • 00:09:52.751 --> 00:09:56.788
  • some wonderful deliverancewould take place. So, to cut a
  • 00:09:56.921 --> 00:10:03.261
  • long story short, theytook him to my grandfather'shouse. He was lying in bed,
  • 00:10:03.395 --> 00:10:09.601
  • He started to preach theGospel. He told them about
  • 00:10:09.734 --> 00:10:13.405
  • Jesus, how Jesus saves, howJesus heals. And then he
  • 00:10:13.538 --> 00:10:19.310
  • stepped forward and said, Ihave been sent to demonstrate
  • 00:10:19.444 --> 00:10:26.918
  • the power of the Holy Spirit.He grabbed the hand of my
  • 00:10:27.052 --> 00:10:32.057
  • grandfather, and a jolt ofpower went through the body of
  • 00:10:32.190 --> 00:10:38.596
  • my sick grandfather. He jumpedout of bed, completely healed.
  • 00:10:38.730 --> 00:10:48.039
  • He looked at himself, thoseswollen wrists and ankles,
  • 00:10:48.173 --> 00:10:52.777
  • and, and joints were smooth,and pain free. And he hardly
  • 00:10:52.911 --> 00:11:01.386
  • could, could believe it. Hewas jumping. He was screaming.
  • 00:11:01.519 --> 00:11:05.690
  • He was weeping. He was dancingtogether with grandma,
  • 00:11:05.824 --> 00:11:10.795
  • and praising God for thiswonderful miracle that He had
  • 00:11:10.929 --> 00:11:16.901
  • done. My grandfather and mygrandmother received Jesus
  • 00:11:17.035 --> 00:11:21.439
  • that day. But Luis Graf said,I'm not done yet. He said, You
  • 00:11:21.573 --> 00:11:29.514
  • still need to receive thebaptism into the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:11:29.647 --> 00:11:35.153
  • My grandparents had neverheard of any, anything like
  • 00:11:35.286 --> 00:11:40.425
  • that, but they were now readyto receive anything that was
  • 00:11:40.558 --> 00:11:45.497
  • mentioned. And Luis Graf laidhis hands on them, and the
  • 00:11:45.630 --> 00:11:50.368
  • power of God fell on both, andthey broke out in new tongues,
  • 00:11:50.502 --> 00:11:55.640
  • praising Jesus. And, and theywere filled with the fire and
  • 00:11:55.774 --> 00:12:02.046
  • the power of the Holy Spirit.That's how God broke into
  • 00:12:02.180 --> 00:12:08.720
  • the Bonnke family. And thatexplains so many other
  • 00:12:08.853 --> 00:12:12.690
  • happenings later in mylife. It was, it was all
  • 00:12:12.824 --> 00:12:18.463
  • pre-ordained, and I am everso glad that I was able to
  • 00:12:18.596 --> 00:12:25.069
  • connect with Luis Graf.And then of course,
  • 00:12:25.203 --> 00:12:28.673
  • my father later andbegun to serve the Lord.
  • 00:12:28.807 --> 00:12:33.545
  • DANIEL- It's amazing to mehow that early experience,
  • 00:12:33.678 --> 00:12:36.381
  • even before you were born, waslike the seed. It was almost
  • 00:12:36.514 --> 00:12:39.617
  • like a prophetic sign ofwhat your life would be,
  • 00:12:39.751 --> 00:12:43.054
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:12:43.188 --> 00:12:44.222
  • DANIEL- miracles, baptismin the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:12:44.355 --> 00:12:46.024
  • REINHARD- Everything
  • 00:12:46.157 --> 00:12:47.091
  • DANIEL- preachingof the Gospel,
  • 00:12:47.225 --> 00:12:48.293
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:12:48.426 --> 00:12:49.327
  • DANIEL- even beforeyou were born.
  • 00:12:49.460 --> 00:12:50.695
  • REINHARD- Yes, absolutely.So, I can see how everything
  • 00:12:50.829 --> 00:12:52.330
  • was laid out. And by the graceof God, I was able to step
  • 00:12:52.463 --> 00:12:56.734
  • into that ready-made plan ofGod. When, at the end of World
  • 00:12:56.868 --> 00:13:03.174
  • War II, I was just four yearsof age, we had to flee from
  • 00:13:03.308 --> 00:13:07.412
  • the approaching Sovietarmy. trying to cross the Baltic
  • 00:13:07.545 --> 00:13:13.084
  • from East Germany to Denmark.And the ship on which we were,
  • 00:13:13.218 --> 00:13:20.425
  • struck a sea mine and, and thatbig ship began to tilt, But then
  • 00:13:20.558 --> 00:13:29.801
  • suddenly a miracle happened.The, the ship came back into
  • 00:13:29.934 --> 00:13:35.506
  • the proper position and thecaptain announced that the
  • 00:13:35.640 --> 00:13:39.744
  • pumps were coping with thein-flow of water. We made it
  • 00:13:39.878 --> 00:13:44.916
  • to the Danish coast, andsurvived. But I've been asking
  • 00:13:45.049 --> 00:13:50.555
  • myself many times how the Lordand why the Lord protected us.
  • 00:13:50.688 --> 00:13:57.695
  • And I've come to theconclusion it's because I was
  • 00:13:57.829 --> 00:14:02.967
  • on it. God knew I would goto Africa. God knew I would
  • 00:14:03.101 --> 00:14:08.039
  • preach the Gospel of JesusChrist. And I believe that
  • 00:14:08.172 --> 00:14:11.876
  • this was such a wonderful,wonderful calling that, that
  • 00:14:12.010 --> 00:14:19.918
  • the Lord could not seeit drown in the Ostsee,the Baltic Sea.
  • 00:14:20.051 --> 00:14:27.625
  • DANIEL- And that's a perfectsegue, because for those that
  • 00:14:27.759 --> 00:14:29.761
  • don't know about the life ofEvangelist Reinhard Bonnke, he
  • 00:14:29.894 --> 00:14:32.130
  • eventually went on to go toAfrica and to see nations.
  • 00:14:32.263 --> 00:14:36.034
  • Is that fair to saynations shaken,
  • 00:14:36.167 --> 00:14:38.369
  • REINHARD- Absolutely
  • 00:14:38.503 --> 00:14:39.370
  • DANIEL- by thepower of the Gospel.
  • 00:14:39.504 --> 00:14:40.471
  • REINHARD- Absolutely, yes.
  • 00:14:40.605 --> 00:14:41.839
  • DANIEL- And I want to giveyou just a little glimpse into
  • 00:14:41.973 --> 00:14:43.474
  • how that all began. And Ithink you're gonna be amazedby this. Watch.
  • 00:14:43.608 --> 00:14:46.544
  • NARRATOR-Africa shall be saved.
  • 00:14:47.645 --> 00:14:50.481
  • (Music and crowd noise)
  • 00:14:50.615 --> 00:14:54.886
  • That one statement,that singular vision
  • 00:14:55.019 --> 00:14:58.122
  • brought about thisspectacular sight.
  • 00:14:58.256 --> 00:15:00.491
  • (Music and crowd noise)
  • 00:15:00.625 --> 00:15:07.699
  • But the ministry of EvangelistReinhard Bonnke didn't begin
  • 00:15:07.832 --> 00:15:11.469
  • with such a awesome display ofhumanity as this. It started off
  • 00:15:11.602 --> 00:15:16.074
  • in Lesotho, Southern Africa.
  • 00:15:16.207 --> 00:15:19.911
  • As a young German missionary,Reinhard Bonnke with his family,
  • 00:15:20.044 --> 00:15:23.181
  • went to the people of Lesothoand began preaching, sometimes
  • 00:15:23.314 --> 00:15:27.452
  • to only five people. But after adream where he saw the continent
  • 00:15:27.585 --> 00:15:33.725
  • of Africa washed in the blood ofJesus, Reinhard was determined
  • 00:15:33.858 --> 00:15:38.429
  • to spread the Gospel fromCape Town to Cairo. With
  • 00:15:38.563 --> 00:15:43.835
  • perseverance, those five peopleturned into hundreds of
  • 00:15:43.968 --> 00:15:47.605
  • thousands. Reinhard's ministryeventually moved to
  • 00:15:47.739 --> 00:15:52.543
  • Johannesburg, South Africa, andthis was the place where Christ
  • 00:15:52.677 --> 00:15:57.115
  • for all Nations was birthed. Agospel meeting at the National
  • 00:15:57.248 --> 00:16:03.254
  • Stadium in Gaborone, Botswanabecame the launch pad for future
  • 00:16:03.388 --> 00:16:07.392
  • crusades. The awesome miraclesand out pouring of the Holy
  • 00:16:07.525 --> 00:16:12.363
  • Spirit completely altered CFANand became the blueprint
  • 00:16:12.497 --> 00:16:17.402
  • for Reinhard's future ministry.
  • 00:16:17.535 --> 00:16:19.337
  • Reinhard continued preaching andsoon found that the campaigns
  • 00:16:19.470 --> 00:16:23.641
  • had reached a level where heneeded a tent to seat 10.000
  • 00:16:23.775 --> 00:16:27.245
  • people. This endeavor becamereality and the tent was
  • 00:16:27.378 --> 00:16:32.717
  • affectionately called the YellowTent. The size of the campaigns
  • 00:16:32.850 --> 00:16:36.521
  • grew and so did the reputationof Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke as
  • 00:16:36.654 --> 00:16:42.360
  • more and more people were savedand incredible miracles took
  • 00:16:42.493 --> 00:16:46.464
  • place. CFAN outgrew the YellowTent and the Big Tent was built.
  • 00:16:46.597 --> 00:16:53.938
  • It seated over 30.000 people,the largest movable structure
  • 00:16:54.072 --> 00:16:58.976
  • built to date, according to theGuinness Book of Records. But
  • 00:16:59.110 --> 00:17:03.748
  • despite the huge milestonethat the Big Tent was, it was
  • 00:17:03.881 --> 00:17:07.051
  • destroyed by fierce windsshortly after it was erected.
  • 00:17:07.185 --> 00:17:11.522
  • The era of open-air crusades wasthus born. In the next few
  • 00:17:11.656 --> 00:17:20.031
  • months, crowds swelled to over100.000. But because of the
  • 00:17:20.164 --> 00:17:25.536
  • political turmoil in SouthAfrica at that time, the Lord
  • 00:17:25.670 --> 00:17:30.141
  • directed Reinhard to move theCFAN headquarters out of Africa
  • 00:17:30.274 --> 00:17:34.846
  • altogether. To fulfill thevision of a Blood washed Africa,
  • 00:17:34.979 --> 00:17:40.518
  • the CFAN team had to re-locateto Frankfurt, Germany. Again
  • 00:17:40.651 --> 00:17:45.690
  • this proved to be another launchpad to reach Africa as never
  • 00:17:45.823 --> 00:17:50.528
  • before. The crowds continued togrow. Despite many challenges
  • 00:17:50.661 --> 00:17:56.767
  • and difficulties over the years,the great gospel crusades grew
  • 00:17:56.901 --> 00:18:02.106
  • bigger and bigger, attractingcrowds of up to 500.000 people
  • 00:18:02.240 --> 00:18:08.279
  • in a single meeting. And thenduring the millennium crusade
  • 00:18:08.412 --> 00:18:13.718
  • in Lagos, Nigeria, Reinhardpreached to over 1.6 million
  • 00:18:13.851 --> 00:18:21.425
  • people in a single service.
  • 00:18:21.559 --> 00:18:25.796
  • Christ for all Nations continuesto plunder hell to populate
  • 00:18:25.930 --> 00:18:30.301
  • heaven. Africa IS being saved.

  • missionary in Lesotho, insouthern Africa. And through a

  • series of events, the Lord ledyou to found the ministry of

  • Christ for All Nations. andthen eventually these enormous
  • 00:21:16.801 --> 00:21:19.804
  • crusades began happening. Ihave to ask you this because

  • those that have watched, havejust seen that picture of
  • 00:21:23.007 --> 00:21:26.644
  • that massive crusade crowdin Lagos, Nigeria.
  • 00:21:26.777 --> 00:21:30.715

  • 00:21:31.882 --> 00:21:33.184
  • REINHARD- Well that wassomething I had never seen
  • 00:21:33.317 --> 00:21:36.654
  • before or after. I believeit's still going to repeat
  • 00:21:36.787 --> 00:21:40.257
  • itself in a much greater form.But in the city of Lagos in
  • 00:21:40.391 --> 00:21:46.330
  • the year 2000 during ourmillennium crusade, I preached
  • 00:21:46.464 --> 00:21:52.002
  • to 1.600.000 people in asingle service. And when they
  • 00:21:52.136 --> 00:22:00.010

  • God is well able to shrinktime. No matter where, He is
  • 00:22:50.060 --> 00:22:55.866
