In 1972, Reinhard Bonnke heard a message from God:
"Africa shall be saved." Obediently, Bonnke moved to
Africa, where his ministry grew from humble roots to
crusades drawing more than one million people per night.
His ministry spawned incredible healing miracles of God,
saw the conversion of Muslims at a rate that warranted a
letter of warning from Osama bin Laden, and registered
more than 74 million decisions for Christ. In 2001,
Bonnke debated whether or not to move his ministry to
Before he could think of leaving decades of missionary
work in Africa, Bonnke did something he had never done
before: he prayed for a sign that would confirm such a
move. God was about to answer that prayer.
A few days later, a woman brought the body of her
deceased husband to the Nigerian church where Bonnke
was preaching, in hopes that he would be raised from
the dead. Bonnke was unaware of this, and he never even
prayed for this man; but as he concluded his message,
he heard a chorus of shouts: "He's breathing He's
breathing " In front of thousands of witnesses, a man
dead three days had been raised back to life.
Now detailed for the first time, this incredible miracle is
part of a movement of God that was birthed in a small
African church and is now stretching around the world to
America. It is the beginning of a work of God, confirming
a new word: "America shall be saved."
