The Grand Finale – Asaba, Nigeria – Day 5

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Dec 12, 2010  /     Articles, Crusade Photos  /     0 Comment

Tonight Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke preached the Gospel; calling the people to turn from the darkness to the Light…from the power of Satan to God. His message was clear and powerful and the response was virtually unanimous.

We heard many wonderful testimonies of healing (far too many to mention); tumors and cists vanished, crippled limbs and broken bones were healed, eyesight was restored, deaf ears opened, rheumatism, ulcers and chronic pain disappeared!

Now, as the final meeting of the final campaign in 2010 has just come to a close here in Asaba, Nigeria, we are rejoicing because of the millions that have been saved this year and the eternal impact that has been made through these campaigns.

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for standing with us this year and supporting this work with your prayers and finances. We are co-laborers together with Jesus in His Divine initiative…what a privilege.

“My Spirit on All Flesh” – Asaba, Nigeria – Day 4

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Dec 12, 2010  /     Articles, Crusade Photos  /     0 Comment

Another meeting has just come to a close here in Asaba, Nigeria where the mercy of God is being poured out in the form of salvation, healing and Holy Spirit baptism.

This morning the Fire Conference came to a climax as the Holy Spirit was poured out on the delegates, evangelists, pastors and other church workers. But this wonderful empowering “gift of the Father” is not only for the clergy. The baptism into the Holy Spirit is for every child of God! Tonight we prayed for everyone who came to the meeting, even those who have just been born again, and the Spirit of God was poured out on “all flesh”! The sound of new tongues filled the air as thousands received the fire!

When the Holy Spirit falls, people don’t just speak in tongues, but any miracle is possible. Have a look at the attached picture of one dear old lady who was healed after being crippled from a stroke for one year. Another lady had been suffering with acute typhoid fever since 1995. Last night she was sitting with the infirm people in the section reserved for the sick, but tonight she is completely well…healed by the power of God!

On the Front Lines – Asaba, Nigeria – Day 3

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Dec 10, 2010  /     Articles, Crusade Photos  /     1 Comment

We are on the front lines of the battle here in Asaba. The enemy is pushing, but we are pushing back and the Gates of Hell will not prevail against us!

I preached tonight on the power of the blood of Jesus. It seemed like the people were hanging on every word and drinking it all in. After praying for salvation we burned barrels of items associated with idolatry and the occult just like they did in Acts 19. With the flames still leaping into the air I began to call out the names of the traditional tribal curses and break them one by one in the name of Jesus.

A young man had been suffering with terrible pain in his body and eye problems ever since he received a ring from a witchdoctor three years ago. His friend brought him to the meeting tonight and after hearing the Gospel he brought the ring forward, took it off his finger and threw it into the fire. After the curses were broken he realized that his pain was gone and his eyes were healed.

A Gospel of Power – Asaba, Nigeria – Day 2

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Dec 09, 2010  /     Articles, Crusade Photos  /     1 Comment

It is the second night of our Great Gospel Campaign here in Asaba, Nigeria and momentum is building. These precious people are so responsive and such a pleasure to minister to. They are receiving the Word with great joy. Tonight the Gospel message rang loud and clear and many choose to follow Jesus.

The Gospel that we preach is not one of word only, but comes with a demonstration of Holy Ghost power and tonight many miracles and healings took place.

A woman who was deaf for over 50 years received her healing tonight. She wept as she thanked Jesus for His mercy.

A lunatic was set free tonight after 15 years of madness. He said that as I was praying he felt something come out of his body three times and when this third entity left him he was in his right mind.

Several cripples also gave their testimonies of healing tonight along with others…we are rejoicing.

Piercing the Darkness – Asaba, Nigeria – Day 1

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Dec 08, 2010  /     Articles, Crusade Photos  /     0 Comment

We are back in Africa! Tonight was the beginning of the final Gospel Campaign of 2010 in the city of Asaba in Nigeria and the harvest continues.

In his welcome speech last night, the chairman said, “This Great Gospel Crusade could not have been held at a better time.” He said that other men of God have retreated from this region because of the “Powers of darkness”. He added that many “Satanic altars” have been built around the town and mentioned quite a few evil strongholds that bind the people. But we are here with the light of the Gospel and already tonight we have seen it pierce the darkness.

After the prayer for salvation we heard from a man who had been crippled by rheumatism for 14 years and another for 2 years, but now they could both run and jump without pain! (see the attached pictures)

A young man told us that he had broken his hand in a motorcycle accident and as a result, his hand had been fused shut. Tonight during the prayer for the sick, he suddenly realized it was totally restored.

A young lady testified that the pain she had suffered with for the last 24 years left her tonight!

Harvest Joy – Ogbomosho, Nigeria – Final Day

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Nov 14, 2010  /     Articles, Crusade Photos  /     0 Comment

Tonight I’m sure that all of Heaven was focused on the massive harvest that took place in Ogbomosho, Nigeria. We were amazed to see that the crowd had grown so dramatically over yesterday to 400,000! I preached the Gospel and prayed for the sick and Jesus did the rest. The response was overwhelming and thousands passed from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God.

After the testimonies of healing, Evangelist Bonnke pronounced blessings over the land and following each declaration there was a mighty, earth-shaking “AMEN!” that resounded from the crowd. The people received every blessing in faith and they will not be disappointed in Jesus name.

This is That – Ogbomosho, Nigeria – Day 4

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Nov 13, 2010  /     Articles, Crusade Photos  /     0 Comment

This has been a Holy Spirit day from start to finish. This morning, in the final meeting of the Fire Conference, thousands of pastors received an impartation of the fire of the Holy Spirit. I laid hands on over 500 pastors and sent them out into the huge crowd to lay hands on all the other delegates. We heard that a young Muslim man who had been a mute for 2 years was there when the Holy Spirit fell and suddenly discovered he could speak. He didn’t know what had happened to him so he began asking the pastors. They explained to him that it was Jesus who had healed him!

Tonight, after I preached the Gospel, Evangelist Bonnke prayed for the 275,000 people gathered on the crusade field to also receive the Baptism into the Holy Spirit and I had to choke back the tears as the roar of the crowd caused the ground to tremble.

On the day of Pentecost, Peter had the spiritual discernment to recognize that what was taking place was more than ecstatic manifestations or paranormal phenomena. He had the prophetic sensitivity to see beyond the wind, the fire, the tongues and the ecstasy…realizing the eternal significance of that Pentecostal outpouring. “This is that”, he said, “Which was spoken by the prophet Joel”.

The Full Gospel – Ogbomosho, Nigeria – Day 3

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Nov 12, 2010  /     Articles, Crusade Photos  /     2 Comments

Just moments ago, we left the crusade field where 250,000 people gathered to hear the Gospel. I preached a classic message about the blood of Jesus and then we appropriated the power of that blood with great effect. Many thousands prayed with me to receive salvation and then I began to call out the traditional curses one by one, breaking their power in the name of Jesus!

We are looking forward to tomorrow’s meetings where, in the Fire Conference and in the evening meeting, the Holy Spirit will be poured out on the thousands who gather to receive. Salvation, deliverance, healing and Holy Spirit infilling…this is the full Gospel and we are not ashamed! There is still much work to be done here in Ogbomosho. Thank you for continuing to uphold us in prayer as we press on.

Read the testimonies and see photos of the miracles…

Flash Floods of Salvation – Ogbomosho, Nigeria – Day 2

By Daniel Kolenda   /     Nov 11, 2010  /     Articles, Crusade Photos  /     3 Comments

Tonight the attendance increased to 200,000 here in Ogbomosho, Nigeria. Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke preached a classic Gospel message and when the invitation for salvation was given, the response was overwhelming. It is as though a flash flood of salvation has swept through this region washing away every stronghold of sin and Satan.

We are praying that the Lord would raise up an army of Holy Spirit anointed men and women here in Ogbomosho that will continue to reap the harvest long after we are gone.

See the photo of a young girl healed from blindness tonight…
