Reinhard Bonnke Arrives Lagos Ahead of Farewell Crusade
Renowned international evangelist, Reinhard Bonnke, has arrived Lagos, Nigeria ahead of his farewell crusade scheduled to kickoff on Wednesday.
Shortly after his arrival on Monday, the German evangelist addressed a news conference at the Intercontinental Hotel, Victoria Island, during which he promised a mighty revival and outpouring of God power.
Describing Nigeria as his favourite nation in Africa, Bonnke said he had no regrets for preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ in Africa for 50 years now.
According to the Evangelist, “God’s words will be preached, miracles will be full and the Holy Spirit will come down. The ripple effects of this crusade will be felt all over the world.
“No man has invented water but no one can live without water. We can’t live without the gospel, the gospel is eternal and can never be invalid. The gospel is true today Because it was true at the beginning.”
The 77 year old added that he chose Nigeria because of its huge population, saying that he could smell harvest of souls beginning from Wednesday.
Chairman, Central Working Committee of the Bonnke Farewell Crusade, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola said the nation was glad that Bonnke chose Nigeria for his last crusade in Africa.
“We believe that if there is any darkness still remaining in Africa, after this crusade, such darkness will vanish. Bonnke arrived on Sunday and we can feel the mighty presence of God in this land. We believe that millions of people will receive Christ,” he said.
The crusade which holds behind Sparklight Estate, opposite OPIC, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, begins on Wednesday and ends Sunday.
