How we are reaching 150 Million Souls for Christ
One of the things I loved and admired about Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke was that he was a visionary. He was a forward-looking and forward-thinking man. On more than one occasion, I remember Reinhard, while preaching a sermon, stopping mid-sentence, turning toward me sitting on the front row, pointing his finger at me and saying in a commanding tone, “Daniel, you are not to become the custodian of my legacy. Preach the Gospel!” That was his admonition to me.
What he was saying – and what he did say many times – was that this was not about his name or his legacy. It wasn’t about building some kind of monument to him. Although we love Reinhard Bonnke and we never want to forget the extraordinary way his life impacted our generation, we honour him most by pressing forward with the same spirit that characterised his life, which was embracing the heavenly vision for the sake of souls.
And so, I think it is very appropriate here, by way of tribute to Reinhard, to talk about the future of the ministry he founded and invested his life into. Reinhard has passed on, but this is not the end – we are just getting started!
A Tale of Three Dreams
Daniel Kolenda shares how God planted this prophetic vision in his heart and outlines his divinely- inspired strategy for bringing that vision into reality. Our prayer is that as you watch, you too will dream God-sized dreams with us and then, prayerfully join us in its implementation. The harvest is more plentiful than ever. All that is needed to bring it into the storehouses of heaven, is workers. With your help, CfaN can and will bridge the labour shortage to plunder hell and populate heaven for Calvary’s sake!
The Invitation and Need
There are very few things in life that are truly worthwhile. As John reminds us, “…the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever” (1 John 2:17). What is the will of God? Peter makes it clear that God is, “…not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). There is nothing dearer to the heart of God than souls. Daniel said, “…Those who turn many to righteousness, [will shine] like the stars forever and ever” (Daniel 12:3). If you’ve been looking for something to invest in that pays eternal dividends – look no further. I cannot imagine a better investment in this world!
Leonard Ravenhill said, “The opportunity of a lifetime must be seized in the lifetime of the opportunity.” I believe the harvest that lies before us is not only the opportunity of a lifetime, but the opportunity of the ages. I want to invite you to stand with us and seize this moment for Calvary’s sake! I am asking you to make a commitment that for the next decade, you will stand with Christ for all Nations to see this massive harvest come in. Would you stand with us?
