  • hear the stories of whatGod did in your life.
  • 00:05:34.760 --> 00:05:37.929
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:05:38.063 --> 00:05:39.598
  • DANIEL-Those stories didn't just beginwhen you went into the ministry.
  • 00:05:39.731 --> 00:05:41.733
  • REINHARD- No, no
  • 00:05:41.867 --> 00:05:43.335
  • DANIEL- The amazingstories went on from evenbefore you were born.
  • 00:05:43.468 --> 00:05:46.171
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:05:46.304 --> 00:05:47.539
  • DANIEL- Would you justmind sharing with us how it
  • 00:05:47.672 --> 00:05:48.940
  • happened, how the Holy Spiritbroke into the Bonnke family.
  • 00:05:49.074 --> 00:05:52.277
  • REINHARD- Yes, yes, my fatherwas a pastor and when I was a
  • 00:05:52.411 --> 00:05:59.651
  • teenager, one day I, I had alook at our family tree and
  • 00:05:59.785 --> 00:06:06.391
  • discovered that the Bonnkeclan consisted mostly of
  • 00:06:06.525 --> 00:06:12.764
  • unbelievers, people who didn'tbelieve in Jesus Christ. And I
  • 00:06:12.898 --> 00:06:20.539
  • was so amazed. I said to myfather, I said, how did God
  • 00:06:20.672 --> 00:06:25.811
  • break into our family. When Ithink of my grandfather and of
  • 00:06:25.944 --> 00:06:30.482
  • you, who are such strong menof faith, how is it possible
  • 00:06:30.615 --> 00:06:36.955
  • that, that, that the Lord didsomething so wonderful in your
  • 00:06:37.088 --> 00:06:41.493
  • life. And my father told me astory that has really had a
  • 00:06:41.626 --> 00:06:46.131
  • mighty effect on my wholelife. He said to me that in
  • 00:06:46.264 --> 00:06:51.837
  • 1922, my grandfather, his namewas August Bonnke, was very,
  • 00:06:51.970 --> 00:06:57.375
  • very sick; sealing pains theycalled it. I mean pains that
  • 00:06:57.509 --> 00:07:02.447
  • were almost unbearable.And then one day a miracle
  • 00:07:02.581 --> 00:07:08.620
  • happened. An Americanmissionary from Springfield,
  • 00:07:08.753 --> 00:07:14.559
  • Missouri, lost his way inthe forest and came to our
  • 00:07:14.693 --> 00:07:20.465
  • village. And as those earlymissionaries and evangelists
  • 00:07:20.599 --> 00:07:27.939
  • worked in those days, theirfirst question was when they
  • 00:07:28.073 --> 00:07:32.244
  • came to a new village or town,Is there anybody sick in this
  • 00:07:32.377 --> 00:07:37.749
  • area? And people said, Oh,yes, somebody is very sick
  • 00:07:37.883 --> 00:07:43.088
  • here. As a matter of fact, youcan hear him scream. And this
  • 00:07:43.221 --> 00:07:48.960
  • American missionary's namewas Luis Graf. He heard my
  • 00:07:49.094 --> 00:07:54.933
  • grandfather scream, andsomehow the compassion and
  • 00:07:55.066 --> 00:08:01.740
  • mercy of God filled his heartand he knew why he had lost
  • 00:08:01.873 --> 00:08:08.713
  • his way. The Holy Spirit hadbrought him right here and
  • 00:08:08.847 --> 00:08:13.485
  • some wonderful deliverancewould take place. So, to cut a
  • 00:08:13.618 --> 00:08:19.958
  • long story short, they tookhim to my grandfather's house.
  • 00:08:20.091 --> 00:08:24.729
  • He was lying in bed, writhingin pain. My grandmother was
  • 00:08:24.863 --> 00:08:29.901
  • there. He started to preachthe Gospel. He told them about
  • 00:08:30.035 --> 00:08:35.006
  • Jesus, how Jesus saves, howJesus heals. And then he
  • 00:08:35.140 --> 00:08:41.046
  • stepped forward and said, Ihave been sent to demonstrate
  • 00:08:41.179 --> 00:08:48.320
  • the power of the Holy Spirit.He grabbed the hand of my
  • 00:08:48.453 --> 00:08:53.458
  • grandfather, and a jolt ofpower went through the body of
  • 00:08:53.592 --> 00:08:59.998
  • my sick grandfather. He jumpedout of bed, completely healed.
  • 00:09:00.131 --> 00:09:09.441
  • He looked at himself, thoseswollen wrists and ankles,
  • 00:09:09.574 --> 00:09:14.179
  • and, and joints were smooth,and pain free. And he hardly
  • 00:09:14.312 --> 00:09:22.787
  • could, could believe it. Hewas jumping. He was screaming.
  • 00:09:22.921 --> 00:09:27.092
  • He was weeping. He was dancingtogether with grandma,
  • 00:09:27.225 --> 00:09:32.197
  • and praising God for thiswonderful miracle that He had
  • 00:09:32.330 --> 00:09:38.303
  • done. My grandfather and mygrandmother received Jesus
  • 00:09:38.436 --> 00:09:42.841
  • that day. But Luis Graf said,I'm not done yet. He said, You
  • 00:09:42.974 --> 00:09:50.915
  • still need to receive thebaptism into the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:09:51.049 --> 00:09:56.554
  • My grandparents had neverheard of any, anything like
  • 00:09:56.688 --> 00:10:01.826
  • that, but they were now readyto receive anything that was
  • 00:10:01.960 --> 00:10:06.898
  • mentioned. And Luis Graf laidhis hands on them, and the
  • 00:10:07.032 --> 00:10:11.770
  • power of God fell on both, andthey broke out in new tongues,
  • 00:10:11.903 --> 00:10:17.042
  • praising Jesus. And, and theywere filled with the fire and
  • 00:10:17.175 --> 00:10:23.448
  • the power of the Holy Spirit.That's how God broke into
  • 00:10:23.581 --> 00:10:30.121
  • the Bonnke family. And thatexplains so many other
  • 00:10:30.255 --> 00:10:34.092
  • happenings later in mylife. It was, it was all
  • 00:10:34.225 --> 00:10:39.864
  • pre-ordained, and I am everso glad that I was able to
  • 00:10:39.998 --> 00:10:46.471
  • connect with Luis Graf.And then of course,
  • 00:10:46.604 --> 00:10:50.075
  • my father later andbegun to serve the Lord.
  • 00:10:50.208 --> 00:10:54.946
  • DANIEL- It's amazing to mehow that early experience,
  • 00:10:55.080 --> 00:10:57.782
  • even before you were born, waslike the seed. It was almost
  • 00:10:57.916 --> 00:11:01.019
  • like a prophetic sign ofwhat your life would be,
  • 00:11:01.152 --> 00:11:04.456
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:11:04.589 --> 00:11:05.623
  • DANIEL- miracles, baptismin the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:11:05.757 --> 00:11:07.425
  • REINHARD- Everything
  • 00:11:07.559 --> 00:11:08.493
  • DANIEL- preachingof the Gospel,
  • 00:11:08.626 --> 00:11:09.694
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:11:09.828 --> 00:11:10.729
  • DANIEL- even beforeyou were born.
  • 00:11:10.862 --> 00:11:12.097
  • REINHARD- Yes, absolutely.So, I can see how everything
  • 00:11:12.230 --> 00:11:13.732
  • was laid out. And by the graceof God, I was able to step
  • 00:11:13.865 --> 00:11:18.136
  • into that ready-made plan ofGod. When, at the end of World
  • 00:11:18.269 --> 00:11:24.642
  • War II, I was just four yearsof age, we had to flee from
  • 00:11:24.776 --> 00:11:29.047
  • the approaching Soviet army.We had to cross the Baltic
  • 00:11:29.180 --> 00:11:33.952
  • Sea. The ship that we werehave to be on and couldn't get
  • 00:11:34.085 --> 00:11:39.224
  • tickets any more, called theGustloff, was struck by a
  • 00:11:39.357 --> 00:11:44.896
  • Soviet torpedo and sank, Ithink with 12.000 people. They
  • 00:11:45.029 --> 00:11:51.136
  • all perished. And we got onthe next boat trying to cross
  • 00:11:51.269 --> 00:11:56.641
  • the Baltic from East Germanyto Denmark. And the ship on
  • 00:11:56.775 --> 00:12:03.381
  • which we were, struck a seamine and, and that big ship
  • 00:12:03.515 --> 00:12:11.589
  • began to tilt, and I heard thescreams of the people. Decades
  • 00:12:11.723 --> 00:12:17.929
  • later in my dreams I headthose screams. But then
  • 00:12:18.062 --> 00:12:23.067
  • suddenly a miracle happened.The, the ship came back into
  • 00:12:23.201 --> 00:12:28.540
  • the proper position and thecaptain announced that the
  • 00:12:28.673 --> 00:12:33.311
  • pumps were coping with thein-flow of water. We made it
  • 00:12:33.444 --> 00:12:38.483
  • to the Danish coast, andsurvived. But I've been asking
  • 00:12:38.616 --> 00:12:44.122
  • myself many times how the Lordand why the Lord protected us.
  • 00:12:44.255 --> 00:12:51.262
  • And I've come to theconclusion it's because I was
  • 00:12:51.396 --> 00:12:56.534
  • on it. God knew I would goto Africa. God knew I would
  • 00:12:56.668 --> 00:13:01.606
  • preach the Gospel of JesusChrist. And I believe that
  • 00:13:01.739 --> 00:13:05.443
  • this was such a wonderful,wonderful calling that, that
  • 00:13:05.577 --> 00:13:13.484
  • the Lord could not seeit drown in the Ostsee,the Baltic Sea.
  • 00:13:13.618 --> 00:13:21.192
  • DANIEL- And that's a perfectsegue, because for those that
  • 00:13:21.326 --> 00:13:23.328
  • don't know about the life ofEvangelist Reinhard Bonnke, he
  • 00:13:23.461 --> 00:13:25.697
  • eventually went on to go toAfrica and to see nations.
  • 00:13:25.830 --> 00:13:29.601
  • Is that fair to saynations shaken,
  • 00:13:29.734 --> 00:13:31.936
  • REINHARD- Absolutely
  • 00:13:32.070 --> 00:13:32.937
  • DANIEL- by thepower of the Gospel.
  • 00:13:33.071 --> 00:13:34.038
  • REINHARD- Absolutely, yes.
  • 00:13:34.172 --> 00:13:35.406
  • DANIEL- And I want to giveyou just a little glimpse into
  • 00:13:35.540 --> 00:13:37.041
  • how that all began. And Ithink you're gonna be amazedby this. Watch.
  • 00:13:37.175 --> 00:13:39.811
  • NARRATOR-Africa shall be saved.
  • 00:13:41.012 --> 00:13:44.048
  • (Music and crowd noise)
  • 00:13:44.182 --> 00:13:48.453
  • That one statement,that singular vision
  • 00:13:48.586 --> 00:13:51.689
  • brought about thisspectacular sight.
  • 00:13:51.823 --> 00:13:54.058
  • (Music and crowd noise)
  • 00:13:54.192 --> 00:14:01.266
  • But the ministry of EvangelistReinhard Bonnke didn't begin
  • 00:14:01.399 --> 00:14:05.036
  • with such a awesome display ofhumanity as this. It started off
  • 00:14:05.169 --> 00:14:09.641
  • in Lesotho, Southern Africa.
  • 00:14:09.774 --> 00:14:13.478
  • As a young German missionary,Reinhard Bonnke with his family,
  • 00:14:13.611 --> 00:14:16.748
  • went to the people of Lesothoand began preaching, sometimes
  • 00:14:16.881 --> 00:14:21.019
  • to only five people. But after adream where he saw the continent
  • 00:14:21.152 --> 00:14:27.292
  • of Africa washed in the blood ofJesus, Reinhard was determined
  • 00:14:27.425 --> 00:14:31.996
  • to spread the Gospel fromCape Town to Cairo. With
  • 00:14:32.130 --> 00:14:37.402
  • perseverance, those five peopleturned into hundreds of
  • 00:14:37.535 --> 00:14:41.172
  • thousands. Reinhard's ministryeventually moved to
  • 00:14:41.306 --> 00:14:46.110
  • Johannesburg, South Africa, andthis was the place where Christ
  • 00:14:46.244 --> 00:14:50.682
  • for all Nations was birthed. Agospel meeting at the National
  • 00:14:50.815 --> 00:14:56.821
  • Stadium in Gaborone, Botswanabecame the launch pad for future
  • 00:14:56.955 --> 00:15:00.959
  • crusades. The awesome miraclesand out pouring of the Holy
  • 00:15:01.092 --> 00:15:05.930
  • Spirit completely altered CFANand became the blueprint
  • 00:15:06.064 --> 00:15:10.969
  • for Reinhard's future ministry.
  • 00:15:11.102 --> 00:15:12.904
  • Reinhard continued preaching andsoon found that the campaigns
  • 00:15:13.037 --> 00:15:17.208
  • had reached a level where heneeded a tent to seat 10.000
  • 00:15:17.342 --> 00:15:20.812
  • people. This endeavor becamereality and the tent was
  • 00:15:20.945 --> 00:15:26.284
  • affectionately called the YellowTent. The size of the campaigns
  • 00:15:26.417 --> 00:15:30.088
  • grew and so did the reputationof Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke as
  • 00:15:30.221 --> 00:15:35.927
  • more and more people were savedand incredible miracles took
  • 00:15:36.060 --> 00:15:40.031
  • place. CFAN outgrew the YellowTent and the Big Tent was built.
  • 00:15:40.164 --> 00:15:47.505
  • It seated over 30.000 people,the largest movable structure
  • 00:15:47.638 --> 00:15:52.543
  • built to date, according to theGuinness Book of Records. But
  • 00:15:52.677 --> 00:15:57.315
  • despite the huge milestonethat the Big Tent was, it was
  • 00:15:57.448 --> 00:16:00.618
  • destroyed by fierce windsshortly after it was erected.
  • 00:16:00.752 --> 00:16:05.089
  • The era of open-air crusades wasthus born. In the next few
  • 00:16:05.223 --> 00:16:13.598
  • months, crowds swelled to over100.000. But because of the
  • 00:16:13.731 --> 00:16:19.103
  • political turmoil in SouthAfrica at that time, the Lord
  • 00:16:19.237 --> 00:16:23.708
  • directed Reinhard to move theCFAN headquarters out of Africa
  • 00:16:23.841 --> 00:16:28.413
  • altogether. To fulfill thevision of a Blood washed Africa,
  • 00:16:28.546 --> 00:16:34.085
  • the CFAN team had to re-locateto Frankfurt, Germany. Again
  • 00:16:34.218 --> 00:16:39.257
  • this proved to be another launchpad to reach Africa as never
  • 00:16:39.390 --> 00:16:44.095
  • before. The crowds continued togrow. Despite many challenges
  • 00:16:44.228 --> 00:16:50.334
  • and difficulties over the years,the great gospel crusades grew
  • 00:16:50.468 --> 00:16:55.673
  • bigger and bigger, attractingcrowds of up to 500.000 people
  • 00:16:55.807 --> 00:17:01.846
  • in a single meeting. And thenduring the millennium crusade
  • 00:17:01.979 --> 00:17:07.285
  • in Lagos, Nigeria, Reinhardpreached to over 1.6 million
  • 00:17:07.418 --> 00:17:14.992
  • people in a single service.
  • 00:17:15.126 --> 00:17:19.363
  • Christ for all Nations continuesto plunder hell to populate
  • 00:17:19.497 --> 00:17:23.868
  • heaven. Africa IS being saved.

  • missionary in Lesotho, insouthern Africa. And through a
  • 00:20:16.741 --> 00:20:20.611
  • series of events, the Lord ledyou to found the ministry of

  • Christ for All Nations. andthen eventually these enormous
  • 00:20:24.115 --> 00:20:27.118
  • crusades began happening. Ihave to ask you this because

  • those that have watched, havejust seen that picture of
  • 00:20:30.321 --> 00:20:33.958
  • that massive crusade crowdin Lagos, Nigeria.
  • 00:20:34.091 --> 00:20:38.029

  • REINHARD- Well that wassomething I had never seen
  • 00:20:40.631 --> 00:20:43.968
  • before or after. I believeit's still going to repeat
  • 00:20:44.101 --> 00:20:47.571
  • itself in a much greater form.But in the city of Lagos in
  • 00:20:47.705 --> 00:20:53.644

  • 00:20:53.778 --> 00:20:59.317
