  • hear the stories of whatGod did in your life.
  • 00:05:35.751 --> 00:05:38.920
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:05:39.054 --> 00:05:40.589
  • DANIEL-Those stories didn't just beginwhen you went into the ministry.
  • 00:05:40.722 --> 00:05:42.724
  • REINHARD- No, no
  • 00:05:42.858 --> 00:05:44.326
  • DANIEL- The amazingstories went on from evenbefore you were born.
  • 00:05:44.459 --> 00:05:47.162
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:05:47.295 --> 00:05:48.530
  • DANIEL- Would you justmind sharing with us how it
  • 00:05:48.663 --> 00:05:49.931
  • happened, how the Holy Spiritbroke into the Bonnke family.
  • 00:05:50.065 --> 00:05:53.268
  • REINHARD- Yes, yes, my fatherwas a pastor and when I was a
  • 00:05:53.402 --> 00:06:00.642
  • teenager, one day I, I had alook at our family tree and
  • 00:06:00.776 --> 00:06:07.382
  • discovered that the Bonnkeclan consisted mostly of
  • 00:06:07.516 --> 00:06:13.755
  • unbelievers, people who didn'tbelieve in Jesus Christ. And I
  • 00:06:13.889 --> 00:06:21.530
  • was so amazed. I said to myfather, I said, how did God
  • 00:06:21.663 --> 00:06:26.802
  • break into our family. When Ithink of my grandfather and of
  • 00:06:26.935 --> 00:06:31.473
  • you, who are such strong menof faith, how is it possible
  • 00:06:31.606 --> 00:06:37.946
  • that, that, that the Lord didsomething so wonderful in your
  • 00:06:38.079 --> 00:06:42.484
  • life. And my father told me astory that has really had a
  • 00:06:42.617 --> 00:06:47.122
  • mighty effect on my wholelife. He said to me that in
  • 00:06:47.255 --> 00:06:52.828
  • 1922, my grandfather, his namewas August Bonnke, was very,
  • 00:06:52.961 --> 00:06:58.366
  • very sick; sealing pains theycalled it. I mean pains that
  • 00:06:58.500 --> 00:07:03.438
  • were almost unbearable.And then one day a miracle
  • 00:07:03.572 --> 00:07:09.611
  • happened. An Americanmissionary from Springfield,
  • 00:07:09.744 --> 00:07:15.550
  • Missouri, lost his way inthe forest and came to our
  • 00:07:15.684 --> 00:07:21.456
  • village. And as those earlymissionaries and evangelists
  • 00:07:21.590 --> 00:07:28.930
  • worked in those days, theirfirst question was when they
  • 00:07:29.064 --> 00:07:33.235
  • came to a new village or town,Is there anybody sick in this
  • 00:07:33.368 --> 00:07:38.740
  • area? And people said, Oh,yes, somebody is very sick
  • 00:07:38.874 --> 00:07:44.079
  • here. As a matter of fact, youcan hear him scream. And this
  • 00:07:44.212 --> 00:07:49.951
  • American missionary's namewas Luis Graf. He heard my
  • 00:07:50.085 --> 00:07:55.924
  • grandfather scream, andsomehow the compassion and
  • 00:07:56.057 --> 00:08:02.731
  • mercy of God filled his heartand he knew why he had lost
  • 00:08:02.864 --> 00:08:09.704
  • his way. The Holy Spirit hadbrought him right here and
  • 00:08:09.838 --> 00:08:14.476
  • some wonderful deliverancewould take place. So, to cut a
  • 00:08:14.609 --> 00:08:20.949
  • long story short, they tookhim to my grandfather's house.
  • 00:08:21.082 --> 00:08:25.720
  • He was lying in bed, writhingin pain. My grandmother was
  • 00:08:25.854 --> 00:08:30.892
  • there. He started to preachthe Gospel. He told them about
  • 00:08:31.026 --> 00:08:35.997
  • Jesus, how Jesus saves, howJesus heals. And then he
  • 00:08:36.131 --> 00:08:42.037
  • stepped forward and said, Ihave been sent to demonstrate
  • 00:08:42.170 --> 00:08:49.311
  • the power of the Holy Spirit.He grabbed the hand of my
  • 00:08:49.444 --> 00:08:54.449
  • grandfather, and a jolt ofpower went through the body of
  • 00:08:54.583 --> 00:09:00.989
  • my sick grandfather. He jumpedout of bed, completely healed.
  • 00:09:01.122 --> 00:09:10.432
  • He looked at himself, thoseswollen wrists and ankles,
  • 00:09:10.565 --> 00:09:15.170
  • and, and joints were smooth,and pain free. And he hardly
  • 00:09:15.303 --> 00:09:23.778
  • could, could believe it. Hewas jumping. He was screaming.
  • 00:09:23.912 --> 00:09:28.083
  • He was weeping. He was dancingtogether with grandma,
  • 00:09:28.216 --> 00:09:33.188
  • and praising God for thiswonderful miracle that He had
  • 00:09:33.321 --> 00:09:39.294
  • done. My grandfather and mygrandmother received Jesus
  • 00:09:39.427 --> 00:09:43.832
  • that day. But Luis Graf said,I'm not done yet. He said, You
  • 00:09:43.965 --> 00:09:51.906
  • still need to receive thebaptism into the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:09:52.040 --> 00:09:57.545
  • My grandparents had neverheard of any, anything like
  • 00:09:57.679 --> 00:10:02.817
  • that, but they were now readyto receive anything that was
  • 00:10:02.951 --> 00:10:07.889
  • mentioned. And Luis Graf laidhis hands on them, and the
  • 00:10:08.023 --> 00:10:12.761
  • power of God fell on both, andthey broke out in new tongues,
  • 00:10:12.894 --> 00:10:18.033
  • praising Jesus. And, and theywere filled with the fire and
  • 00:10:18.166 --> 00:10:24.439
  • the power of the Holy Spirit.That's how God broke into
  • 00:10:24.572 --> 00:10:31.112
  • the Bonnke family. And thatexplains so many other
  • 00:10:31.246 --> 00:10:35.083
  • happenings later in mylife. It was, it was all
  • 00:10:35.216 --> 00:10:40.855
  • pre-ordained, and I am everso glad that I was able to
  • 00:10:40.989 --> 00:10:47.462
  • connect with Luis Graf.And then of course,
  • 00:10:47.595 --> 00:10:51.066
  • my father later andbegun to serve the Lord.
  • 00:10:51.199 --> 00:10:55.937
  • DANIEL- It's amazing to mehow that early experience,
  • 00:10:56.071 --> 00:10:58.773
  • even before you were born, waslike the seed. It was almost
  • 00:10:58.907 --> 00:11:02.010
  • like a prophetic sign ofwhat your life would be,
  • 00:11:02.143 --> 00:11:05.447
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:11:05.580 --> 00:11:06.614
  • DANIEL- miracles, baptismin the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:11:06.748 --> 00:11:08.416
  • REINHARD- Everything
  • 00:11:08.550 --> 00:11:09.484
  • DANIEL- preachingof the Gospel,
  • 00:11:09.617 --> 00:11:10.685
  • REINHARD- Yes
  • 00:11:10.819 --> 00:11:11.720
  • DANIEL- even beforeyou were born.
  • 00:11:11.853 --> 00:11:13.088
  • REINHARD- Yes, absolutely.So, I can see how everything
  • 00:11:13.221 --> 00:11:14.723
  • was laid out. And by the graceof God, I was able to step
  • 00:11:14.856 --> 00:11:19.127
  • into that ready-made plan ofGod. When, at the end of World
  • 00:11:19.260 --> 00:11:25.633
  • War II, I was just four yearsof age, we had to flee from
  • 00:11:25.767 --> 00:11:30.038
  • the approaching Soviet army.We had to cross the Baltic
  • 00:11:30.171 --> 00:11:34.943
  • Sea. The ship that we werehave to be on and couldn't get
  • 00:11:35.076 --> 00:11:40.215
  • tickets any more, called theGustloff, was struck by a
  • 00:11:40.348 --> 00:11:45.887
  • Soviet torpedo and sank, Ithink with 12.000 people. They
  • 00:11:46.020 --> 00:11:52.127
  • all perished. And we got onthe next boat trying to cross
  • 00:11:52.260 --> 00:11:57.632
  • the Baltic from East Germanyto Denmark. And the ship on
  • 00:11:57.766 --> 00:12:04.372
  • which we were, struck a seamine and, and that big ship
  • 00:12:04.506 --> 00:12:12.580
  • began to tilt, and I heard thescreams of the people. Decades
  • 00:12:12.714 --> 00:12:18.920
  • later in my dreams I headthose screams. But then
  • 00:12:19.053 --> 00:12:24.058
  • suddenly a miracle happened.The, the ship came back into
  • 00:12:24.192 --> 00:12:29.531
  • the proper position and thecaptain announced that the
  • 00:12:29.664 --> 00:12:34.302
  • pumps were coping with thein-flow of water. We made it
  • 00:12:34.435 --> 00:12:39.474
  • to the Danish coast, andsurvived. But I've been asking
  • 00:12:39.607 --> 00:12:45.113
  • myself many times how the Lordand why the Lord protected us.
  • 00:12:45.246 --> 00:12:52.253
  • And I've come to theconclusion it's because I was
  • 00:12:52.387 --> 00:12:57.525
  • on it. God knew I would goto Africa. God knew I would
  • 00:12:57.659 --> 00:13:02.597
  • preach the Gospel of JesusChrist. And I believe that
  • 00:13:02.730 --> 00:13:06.434
  • this was such a wonderful,wonderful calling that, that
  • 00:13:06.568 --> 00:13:14.475
  • the Lord could not seeit drown in the Ostsee,the Baltic Sea.
  • 00:13:14.609 --> 00:13:22.183
  • DANIEL- And that's a perfectsegue, because for those that
  • 00:13:22.317 --> 00:13:24.319
  • don't know about the life ofEvangelist Reinhard Bonnke, he
  • 00:13:24.452 --> 00:13:26.688
  • eventually went on to go toAfrica and to see nations.
  • 00:13:26.821 --> 00:13:30.592
  • Is that fair to saynations shaken,
  • 00:13:30.725 --> 00:13:32.927
  • REINHARD- Absolutely
  • 00:13:33.061 --> 00:13:33.928
  • DANIEL- by thepower of the Gospel.
  • 00:13:34.062 --> 00:13:35.029
  • REINHARD- Absolutely, yes.
  • 00:13:35.163 --> 00:13:36.397
  • DANIEL- And I want to giveyou just a little glimpse into
  • 00:13:36.531 --> 00:13:38.032
  • how that all began. And Ithink you're gonna be amazedby this. Watch.
  • 00:13:38.166 --> 00:13:40.802
  • NARRATOR-Africa shall be saved.
  • 00:13:42.003 --> 00:13:45.039
  • (Music and crowd noise)
  • 00:13:45.173 --> 00:13:49.444
  • That one statement,that singular vision
  • 00:13:49.577 --> 00:13:52.680
  • brought about thisspectacular sight.
  • 00:13:52.814 --> 00:13:55.049
  • (Music and crowd noise)
  • 00:13:55.183 --> 00:14:02.257
  • But the ministry of EvangelistReinhard Bonnke didn't begin
  • 00:14:02.390 --> 00:14:06.027
  • with such a awesome display ofhumanity as this. It started off
  • 00:14:06.160 --> 00:14:10.632
  • in Lesotho, Southern Africa.
  • 00:14:10.765 --> 00:14:14.469
  • As a young German missionary,Reinhard Bonnke with his family,
  • 00:14:14.602 --> 00:14:17.739
  • went to the people of Lesothoand began preaching, sometimes
  • 00:14:17.872 --> 00:14:22.010
  • to only five people. But after adream where he saw the continent
  • 00:14:22.143 --> 00:14:28.283
  • of Africa washed in the blood ofJesus, Reinhard was determined
  • 00:14:28.416 --> 00:14:32.987
  • to spread the Gospel fromCape Town to Cairo. With
  • 00:14:33.121 --> 00:14:38.393
  • perseverance, those five peopleturned into hundreds of
  • 00:14:38.526 --> 00:14:42.163
  • thousands. Reinhard's ministryeventually moved to
  • 00:14:42.297 --> 00:14:47.101
  • Johannesburg, South Africa, andthis was the place where Christ
  • 00:14:47.235 --> 00:14:51.673
  • for all Nations was birthed. Agospel meeting at the National
  • 00:14:51.806 --> 00:14:57.812
  • Stadium in Gaborone, Botswanabecame the launch pad for future
  • 00:14:57.946 --> 00:15:01.950
  • crusades. The awesome miraclesand out pouring of the Holy
  • 00:15:02.083 --> 00:15:06.921
  • Spirit completely altered CFANand became the blueprint
  • 00:15:07.055 --> 00:15:11.960
  • for Reinhard's future ministry.
  • 00:15:12.093 --> 00:15:13.895
  • Reinhard continued preaching andsoon found that the campaigns
  • 00:15:14.028 --> 00:15:18.199
  • had reached a level where heneeded a tent to seat 10.000
  • 00:15:18.333 --> 00:15:21.803
  • people. This endeavor becamereality and the tent was
  • 00:15:21.936 --> 00:15:27.275
  • affectionately called the YellowTent. The size of the campaigns
  • 00:15:27.408 --> 00:15:31.079
  • grew and so did the reputationof Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke as
  • 00:15:31.212 --> 00:15:36.918
  • more and more people were savedand incredible miracles took
  • 00:15:37.051 --> 00:15:41.022
  • place. CFAN outgrew the YellowTent and the Big Tent was built.
  • 00:15:41.155 --> 00:15:48.496
  • It seated over 30.000 people,the largest movable structure
  • 00:15:48.629 --> 00:15:53.534
  • built to date, according to theGuinness Book of Records. But
  • 00:15:53.668 --> 00:15:58.306
  • despite the huge milestonethat the Big Tent was, it was
  • 00:15:58.439 --> 00:16:01.609
  • destroyed by fierce windsshortly after it was erected.
  • 00:16:01.743 --> 00:16:06.080
  • The era of open-air crusades wasthus born. In the next few
  • 00:16:06.214 --> 00:16:14.589
  • months, crowds swelled to over100.000. But because of the
  • 00:16:14.722 --> 00:16:20.094
  • political turmoil in SouthAfrica at that time, the Lord
  • 00:16:20.228 --> 00:16:24.699
  • directed Reinhard to move theCFAN headquarters out of Africa
  • 00:16:24.832 --> 00:16:29.404
  • altogether. To fulfill thevision of a Blood washed Africa,
  • 00:16:29.537 --> 00:16:35.076
  • the CFAN team had to re-locateto Frankfurt, Germany. Again
  • 00:16:35.209 --> 00:16:40.248
  • this proved to be another launchpad to reach Africa as never
  • 00:16:40.381 --> 00:16:45.086
  • before. The crowds continued togrow. Despite many challenges
  • 00:16:45.219 --> 00:16:51.325
  • and difficulties over the years,the great gospel crusades grew
  • 00:16:51.459 --> 00:16:56.664
  • bigger and bigger, attractingcrowds of up to 500.000 people
  • 00:16:56.798 --> 00:17:02.837
  • in a single meeting. And thenduring the millennium crusade
  • 00:17:02.970 --> 00:17:08.276
  • in Lagos, Nigeria, Reinhardpreached to over 1.6 million
  • 00:17:08.409 --> 00:17:15.983
  • people in a single service.
  • 00:17:16.117 --> 00:17:20.354
  • Christ for all Nations continuesto plunder hell to populate
  • 00:17:20.488 --> 00:17:24.859
  • heaven. Africa IS being saved.

  • missionary in Lesotho, insouthern Africa. And through a
  • 00:20:17.732 --> 00:20:21.602
  • series of events, the Lord ledyou to found the ministry of

  • Christ for All Nations. andthen eventually these enormous
  • 00:20:25.106 --> 00:20:28.109
  • crusades began happening. Ihave to ask you this because

  • those that have watched, havejust seen that picture of
  • 00:20:31.312 --> 00:20:34.949
  • that massive crusade crowdin Lagos, Nigeria.
  • 00:20:35.082 --> 00:20:39.020

  • REINHARD- Well that wassomething I had never seen
  • 00:20:41.622 --> 00:20:44.959
  • before or after. I believeit's still going to repeat
  • 00:20:45.092 --> 00:20:48.562
  • itself in a much greater form.But in the city of Lagos in
  • 00:20:48.696 --> 00:20:54.635

  • 00:20:54.769 --> 00:21:00.308

  • God is well able to shrinktime. No matter where, He is
  • 00:21:58.366 --> 00:22:04.171
