Reinhard Bonnke: The New Generation of Holy Spirit Evangelists
Mark 16:15 - The Great Commission is God's command to all believers.
"And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15 NKJV)
God is able to shrink time.
Reinhard Bonnke's vision: To allow everyone to see their possibilities in God; To have hell empty and heaven full!
Jesus is the lifter of our heads and the Holy Spirit is the enabler.
Connect with God's plans because they never fail.
We need to press into the promises of God if we want the maximum extent of His blessings.
Those who press through will make it!
Jesus itches to do great things! He is the God of the gospel.
God has no maximum. We need to stop with our littleness and get going for God!
We are co-laborers with God.
God's word in our mouth is as powerful as God's word in His mouth!
Don't be afraid that when you pray nothing happens. Be bold and obedient to God's instructions.
Don't plan with what you have in your pocket, plan with what He has in His pockets! God always pays for what He orders.
The Acts of the apostles are just a sampling of the new possibilities that God can do by the Holy Spirit. He doesn't limit us!
Hell is a reality, but "Jesus saves!" is the high note of the gospel.
Peter Van Der Berg: Crusade Organising
Successful Crusades comes by Three Parts: 1) Holy Spirit Anointed Ministry, 2) Good Planning and Organisation, 3) Good Technical Backup, *(The fourth part: Fund-raising)*
The devil gets a lot of credit for our own stupidity.
Begin by praying and waiting on the Holy Spirit for directions.
Evangelism that does not lead into the local church is nonsense.
Make contact with local churches and build relationships with them.
21 local pastors for the working committee - 1 chairman,1 vice-chairman and 19 pastors to lead the respective roles.
Get 1 director to oversee the whole process of preparing the crusade locally.
Select the director by observing their performance from previous events or background. It's better to delay the crusade than to have a lousy director that leads to a terrible event (that's not God-honoring).
Some criteria: meek, executive-level, good interpersonal skills, ready-to-travel a lot, accepts a sensible salary.
Get professional support for your technical backup.
Get help in organising your crusade. Christianity is a teamwork thing, not a one-man show. When getting help, look for the most successful, influential brothers/sisters you know.
Find people for the jobs, not jobs for the people.
Get local praise and worship talents to do praise and worship for the crusade. They will understand the local culture better.
Open the crusade to as wide as possible audience, but select the right churches.
Beware of heretics - only invite those that allow new converts to grow.
Build a widespread, great reputation that "people who attend your crusades will get saved.".
Teresia Wairimu: Prayer of Authority and Healing
We communicate with God through prayer.
Prayer is a key weapon to defeat evil and bring great moves of God.
Prayer is the key that shuts and opens doors.
Faith and prayer go together. We must mix faith into our prayers.
God can raise the dead.
We need to command the mountains in our lives to move.
When you cry to God, God responds.
Involve God in our business before we even get started on it, and not wait until we are stuck or in trouble.
Inquire from God before taking action.
Have a powerful intercessory team to prayer for your needs.
God answers prayers and wants us to seek Him.
Prayer make us dependent on God.
Prayer takes discipline. We must take time off to pray.
God is looking for people who seek Him so that He can be found.
There is nothing that matches to being in the presence of God.
The enemy has no new language: only intimidation and fear.
Confrontation is part of the gospel. The Kingdom of God is to be taken by force.
If you're going for a confrontation with the enemy, make sure that you pray yourself through.
Jeremiah 51:20 - We are God's axes. We're not just called to destroy strongholds but also to build His kingdom.
“You are My battle-ax and weapons of war: For with you I will break the nation in pieces; With you I will destroy kingdoms;" (Jeremiah 51:20 NKJV)
Ministry is not a sprint. It is a life-long marathon. Keep in prayer.
We are called to pray without ceasing.
Pray anywhere because we don't owe anyone any apology.
We need to teach our leaders to know God, for to fear God is the beginning of understanding and wisdom.
What comes easily can go easily too. We must maintain it by praying.
Luke 22:39-40 - Jesus had a custom of praying regularly at the Mount of Olives.
"Coming out, He went to the Mount of Olives, as He was accustomed, and His disciples also followed Him. When He came to the place, He said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.”" (Luke 22:39-40 NKJV)
Acts 12:1-4 - James was killed by King Herod. Peter was rescued by the prayers of the church. They took it on themselves to pray for his deliverance.
"Now about that time Herod the king stretched out his hand to harass some from the church. Then he killed James the brother of John with the sword. And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also. Now it was during the Days of Unleavened Bread. So when he had arrested him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four squads of soldiers to keep him, intending to bring him before the people after Passover." (Acts 12:1-4 NKJV)
When it seems like you're trapped by the enemy, prayer is the key to exit from that trial. Prayer is your way out!
The Holy Spirit prays and intercedes for us.
We need to know how the Holy Spirit speaks to us - He convicts us, He encourages us and empower us.
When people realise that prayer is power, they will come for prayer meetings.
Acts 16-16-17: - Never be impressed that the devil knows who you are, and even Bible verses.
"Now it happened, as we went to prayer, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by fortune-telling. This girl followed Paul and us, and cried out, saying, “These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation.”" (Acts 16:16-17 NKJV)
We cannot afford to be fearful. Out in the battlefield, we will meet all kinds of people, demons and situations.
Acts 16:25-26 - Prayer and Worship changed the negative situation that Paul and Silas were in.
"But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed." (Acts 16:25-26 NKJV)
Foundations will be shaken, God will release an outpouring of His Spirit, and prison doors will be open!
