Raised From the Dead
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 crusadeds 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 America. 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 streatching around the world to America. It is the beginning of a work of God, confirming a new word: "America shall be saved."
