Exalting Jesus [Revival in Africa may be why the continent is becoming more moral than USA]
Christ for All Nations ^ | 12/15/13

Posted on 01/19/2014 6:46:22 PM PST by SoFloFreeper

300,000 people attended tonight's final meeting here in Yaounde, Cameroon. The chairman of the crusade opened the meeting with a farewell speech for our team. He said that they have always known Reinhard Bonnke as a man who did not exalt himself, but Jesus Christ and he said that we had continued in the same way. To me it was the greatest compliment, that the ministry and the preaching had exalted Christ. This is our goal and a true measure of any ministry's success.

Did You Know?

The average cost of a CfaN crusade is $900,000!

That Evangelist Bonnke has preached to 1.6 million individuals in a single meeting? Did you know that Evangelist Daniel Kolenda has already preached, face to face, to over 8 million people around the world? That CfaN has seen over 72 million documented salvations since 2000? That CfaN has printed over 190 million Gospel books and booklets in 143 languages?

All I know is that I wouldn’t want to be within a thousand miles of Africa if I was gay.

The work going on in particularly sub-Saharan Africa today is truly wonderful. It obviously fades as you go north into the Islamic areas, or south within the sphere of that hellhole ‘South Africa’ which has legal same-sex marriage and polygamy too as well as rampant abortion.

Is there any reason we should not target South Africa in mission work to try and turn that nation back towards morality? What makes them so diametrically different to their neighbors in Namibia?

I wish that Nigeria would cut loose its northern region and wash their hands of the Muslims.

CFAN is only ONE organization that has been working for Jesus in Africa. I was recently shown how much work and how many people have been ministered to in NIGERIA from 1999 until 2011.

Millions have made PROFESSIONS of faith in Jesus Christ in Nigeria since 1999. No wonder there have been attacks by Muslims on believers there.

This also may explain why the nation has taken a strong stand against sodomy.

No wonder Obama hates and the media ignores the truth about Nigeria.

African Christians have not abandoned the notion of sanctification, and that those converted to Christ should live differently from those in the world. Romans 6:1-2.

In fact, I just returned from Africa. 3 crusades- in very remote areas, conferences with church members, etc.
Honestly, I was served to a greater extent than I served. People there are on fire for God’s Word! There is a vibrant presence and God is working in a mighty way. People are coming to Christ in droves.
More ministers and trained leaders are needed.
This is the Smyrna church. I am so blessed to have been part of it.

God has moved his lamp stands from Europe and North Ameica. Our cultures are entering another Dark Ages period when there is no discernment of right and wrong according to God’s Word. That will be a horror to our children and grandchildren.

Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus!

God is reaching into Asia and deepest Africa. Soon, the whole world will have heard the gospel and everyone will have made their choice. Jesus must be close to returning.

We are done with repeated cycles of depravity and renewal. This current evil will envelope the world in preparation for the last days events which will finally glorify God throughout the universe.

That CfaN has seen over 72 million documented salvations since 2000?

Don't have a reason to doubt you, but how is this "documented?"

The Heart of Darkness these days is Harvard Law and Yale Law.

Its a shame that the Nigerians or anyone else does not deluge these law schools with missionaries.

The entire United States, not merely the schools you cited, is "post-Christian" now and is recognized as such internationally and viewed as a fertile missionary field, so much so that several countries are sending missionaries to the USA. I work in Fullerton, in Southern California, and there is a huge and growing presence of expatriot South Korean Christians there for that very purpose.

The African Churches ARE in fact deluging the USA with missionaries!

Read “Never Silent!” by Thad and Erilynne Barnum.

I am a lot more confident that the good news of the Gospel of Jesus is going to get out bigtime and with the help of not only the global south Christians, but also because of the new media.

It is not time for the end of the age yet.

Look for the global south to send Christian missionaries to the west.

African states are becoming more moral than the US in a large part because the US is finding ways to become considerably less moral. That Relativism.

What do you mean by "gay?" That term has a potential breadth of meaning that renders it almost useless.

Does "gay" mean merely experiencing same-sex attraction? Or indulging in it openly? Being political about it; i.e. using other concocted fake terms like "marriage equality?" Being militantly in peoples faces about it, as it means here?
