Yesterday, a great and very famous man passed away, but he didn’t make the headline main news. I remember when he came to Great Britain, many years ago, I saw him live.
He was a very passionate man, he wanted people to know about God, “From Cape Town to Cairo.”
In one rally in Lagos, Nigeria in 2000 there was one point six million people there.
I remember well, there was a certain time in my life when I was genuinely afraid of a situation I was in, and my Mum gave me one of the books he had written, I can’t now remember the title of the book, I just remember it was a small paperback, with short true stores in and I read this little book and it gave me comfort and the real fear that I had, went away, I was encouraged and peaceful afterwards.
Another one of his famous quotes was, “Plundering hell to Populate Heaven.”
A quote I read today: -
Just a few days ago, I was preaching in Orlando about that great cloud of witnesses we read about in Hebrews twelve. Today Evangelist Bonnke has joined that mighty host. I’m sure he has a seat of honour among them. And from heaven’s grandstand he is cheering us on. We must continue to run with patience the race set before us until we all meet again at the feet of Jesus. Today we celebrate his homegoing. What an amazing and remarkable legacy of harvest he leaves behind.”
Evangelist Daniel Kolenda.
Seventy-nine million souls, were Born Again or Saved. He was 79 years old when he died yesterday, so that’s a million souls saved for each year of his life.
He is said to have preached the Gospel of Christ, to more people than anyone in history.
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
2 Timothy Chapter 4 verse 7.
Reinhard Bonnke RIP.
