CfaN Christ for all Nations
I have reported what is wrong with CfaN’s
ministry in two substantial articles — CfaN is NOT In God’s Will and
Reinhard Bonnke, Evangelism, & God’s Will.
Matters of biblical purity for His people are more important to God
than anything else.
What’s the use of bringing the name of Jesus to millions of
people, ostensibly converting them (to become nominal Christians),
and then farming them out to be devoured by wolves? You are merely
taking them out of one bondage and into another.
Probably I have
already trodden on toes by my statement above. Many will object.
Some will claim that if God delivers, He doesn’t then allow His
chosen ones to be taken captive again by something else. They also
object to being told that wolves are present in the majority of
If that hurts your
pride, please realise that God speaks for very important reasons. He
has revealed in dreams to prophets (see MM’s dream diaries):
1) the dreadful
spiritual state of most churches,
2) the abominations that exist in many African churches, and
3) that false ministers abound!
Is that not good
enough reason to shout aloud? Or do you know better than God in your
It’s no wonder
church leaders don’t want to hear from true prophets! A prophet’s
call to repentance and reform is not a palatable one!
Are You Impressed By Reinhard’s Millions?
In CfaN’s Extra Impact report about
the 8th of February
2008 ‘crusade’ in
Reinhard said [my comments in square brackets]:
“Today was another glorious day. During the last 3 meetings
well over 1 million people attended. [Of course, most of these
people are already churched.] The harvest is plenteous and the
miracles so numerous and mighty that no one can deny. [True! But
read later what God considers more important.]
“Tonight I asked evangelist Daniel Kolenda to preach and he
truly preached with fire. After the prayer of salvation I prayed
for the sick. A man who was totally blind for 40 years received
his sight... It is no exaggeration that thousands of healed
people wanted to testify. This is the Jesus at work as we
know Him from Scripture. [True!] Reports reach us of how
people throw their crutches away while on their way to the
meeting and others when going home. The power of God is
simply everywhere in reach. You should see how the streets are
filled with people to and fro the Crusade venue; there is hardly
room for vehicles. It is true to say, that Yola and the whole
State in Nigeria is literally stunned by the power of the
Then of the 9th of February, he reported:
“The 4th crusade meeting was attended tonight by 525,000
people. I can hardly describe what we experienced... It
was so personally intense and glorious. Jesus had thrown His
arms around each single visitor. Mass conversion was followed
by a massive outpouring of the Holy Spirit. And then notable
miracles happened to thousands everywhere: paralytics walking
and the blind seeing, including a boy who was blind from birth.
“In the morning, the Fire Conference in the stadium reached
its climax with a fantastic baptism in the Holy Spirit. More
than 40,000 delegates were there and received their fulness ‘out
of His fulness’. All of us from the CfaN Team here in Yola are
totally overwhelmed by the wonderful works of God.
“Tomorrow night is the grand closing service and we will
return to our respective homes.”
Of 10th February, Reinhard wrote:
“Tonight 625,000 people attended, which means that over
the 5 evening services a total of 2.2 million. We have not
yet been able to count the decision cards, but it will be
absolutely huge! What a mighty God we serve, and what an honour
that he has chosen us to bring in such a harvest of souls.
“The miracles of healing were heart moving. A 14-year-old
boy, who was born totally blind, suddenly saw perfectly... It
was a real river of healing manifestations. Jesus Christ is
surely the same today.”
18th February 2008,
“I have just returned from
wanted to share this encouraging report with you! Here are the
figures from our Yola, Nigeria Gospel Crusade: During the 5 days
of preaching 1,469,800 people responded to the call of
salvation, and received a follow-up booklet – Now That You
Are Saved – of which 1,403,640 actually completed and
returned the Decision Card! Isn’t that wonderful? What a rich
harvest for our blessed Lord Jesus Christ!
“We have seen bigger crowds than this, but I rank this
crusade among the best ever! The glory of the Lord swept so low.
A few times, I had the feeling that something like a mighty
Holy-Spirit-tornado hovered over the huge mass of people with
its trunk sucking up uncleanness, sin and sickness. Often, the
sick were healed before we even prayed for their healing. The
was shaken to its core.”
There is no disputing that God is at work! He performs mighty
wonders and miracles for His people wherever sincere hearts seek His
face, and wherever the Gospel is preached with faith for such signs.
Some may want to dispute the numbers. They could be
exaggerated. But it is a minor point, in my opinion not worth its
What Will Happen To Them?
Certainly, with all that Reinhard says about the wonderful
response, the moving of God’s Spirit, and the display of God’s
miracles for His people, I do not argue. What I vehemently argue
about is: What will happen to all these people?!
Just because they are ‘saved’ today doesn’t mean that they
will make it into God’s kingdom. For:
...we must through many tribulations enter the
kingdom of God
Paul was very conscious of the precariousness of spiritual
growth in converts. He returned time and again to “strengthen[ing]
the souls of the disciples” (Acts
Reinhard doesn’t do that. He leaves it up to others. And
therein lies a massive problem!
It’s all very well reaching millions with the news of Jesus,
but if you leave those converts in the hands of false ministers who
are not converted, who care more for themselves than for building up
the body of Christ spiritually, you abrogate your spiritual duty to
protect the flock from wolves in sheep’s clothing!
Many ministers are false because they do not care for God
with all their heart; they do not care for His truth as much as they
care for personal prestige, position, status, elevation,
self-aggrandisement, etc., and a good living for themselves. You can
discern a false minister by his fruits. At least, you should.
But Reinhard doesn’t.
The inertia of his organisation, and the impetus of his own
agenda keep him going forward the same way, without dealing properly
with the repercussions of his work.
Jesus warned repeatedly about the need to beware of men (Matt
24:4,5,11,24) who would lead disciples astray. Paul warned about it
(Acts 20:28-30); Peter warned (2 Pet 2); Jude warned (letter of Jude);
John warned about antichrists in the Church (1 Jn
Revelation warns; and we warn also in a raft of publications (see
MM’s literature list) about the very real dangers of antichrists
beguiling God’s people, destroying them spiritually!
The Church is being prepared for a massive slaughter! If you
don’t believe me, read the revelation which God gave to another
person who is not a part of this ministry – in Preparing A Flock
For Slaughter. Paul prophesied of a great falling away just
prior to Jesus’ coming (2 Thes 2:3).
Jezebel Is Tolerated!
Reinhard says in his 18th February letter:
“It is worth the while to keep going into all the world!”
No it’s not! Not if all you are doing is taking people into
the arms of Ezekiel 34 shepherds! Better to disciple a few properly,
than millions improperly! God is more interested in quality than
The agenda based upon the fallacy that we must reach the
masses now, because it is the only day of salvation, is seriously
flawed. It starts with a wrong premise – that this is these people’s
only day of salvation, and that if you don’t reach them now they
will burn forever in hell, without any hope of escape – which is
completely untrue! God is not a monster, tormenting people for
eternity. The wicked are killed! Not tortured unmercifully! And
those who have not heard of Jesus are not condemned to an eternity
with- out God. God has another day of salvation awaiting them, as I
have explained elsewhere, according to accurate Bible teaching with
It’s not right to preach if you are not preaching “the truth,
the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.” You mislead.
I’m sorry to say that Reinhard misleads. He is not preaching
the whole truth, merely part of it. And a mixture of truth and error
is a dangerous concoction! It was what Satan spouted from the
snake’s mouth in the Garden, and humanity was led astray by it.
How much was humanity led astray by it? Only partially, or
How much is the Church being led astray by false teachings
and false teachers? Partially or completely?
What do you think Jesus wants preached? Is He happy with a
mixture? Is He content to let false ministers trample on His pure
truth? Does He mind if they lead people astray with false teachings?
Or does He get angry when people don’t care about compromise?
You’d better read your Bible a bit better to find out, if you
don’t think He’s that bothered! Read what Jesus had recorded in
Revelation 2 about tolerating false teachings, which He likens to
committing sexual immorality and eating things sacrificed to idols (Rev
2:20). What will He do to such a Church?
Indeed, I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit
adultery with her [with Jezebel, teaching falsity in the Church]
into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds (Rev
The Great Tribulation is coming to purify the Church of all
its falsity. Tragically it will wipe out all nominal Christians and
demolish churches wholesale! All because falsity is tolerated
instead of shunned!
Teaching Sexual Immorality!
“But,” you may say, “look at all the good works at Reinhard’s
meetings! Look at how CfaN’s work has expanded so much, and is now
doing far more than at the beginning! Look at Reinhard’s love for
people. Look at all the good that is being done. God is surely
behind it! I don’t think your assessment is correct.”
And, with such an incomplete appraisal, many reject what God
says prophetically through us.
If the above is your appraisal of CfaN’s work, notice what
Jesus says to those like Reinhard who tolerate false teaching for
the sake of expedience:
I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience;
and as for your works, the last are more than the first... (Rev
You see, evangelists can be used by God to do much, but still
be short of His ideals:
Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you
allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach
and seduce My servants... (Rev 2:20).
That is what God is sorely displeased about! False teaching
is being fostered that needs changing.
He likens it to teaching and seducing you to commit sexual
immorality and to eat things sacrificed to idols (Rev
What would you think
of someone who teaches you to commit sexual immorality?!
I’m sure you would be
horrified! Rightly so. And that is why God uses such strong
metaphors in His criticisms of those who teach false doctrine, even
though they may be doing an otherwise wonderful job in His Work on
Restoring God’s Truth
to the Church is more important to Him than ‘saving lost souls’.
They are not ‘lost’ irretrievably. God has everything in His hands.
He has a time for their redemption. He’s not trying to get all saved
at this time. (Explained in the article series, The Church Is
Missing The Mark.)
I presented these
truths to Kenneth Hagin Snr. He said he
hadn’t got time for them because he was so busy ‘saving lost souls’.
A year or two later, he died. God revealed in a dream His assessment
of Kenneth Hagin’s ministry.
Kenneth Hagin thought
he was doing God’s Work. He did so much for God – so others thought.
But what God saw was something very different. He saw a man who did
it for his own glory; who got proud and lifted up by what HE did for
Jesus. God used him, yes, but God did not sanction all he taught or
tolerated Jezebel, and there is no assurance that he himself was
actually saved. He was one of the few evangelists who had a vivid
hell experience before conversion! The fear of that fate projected
him into ministry. But in his final days he rejected the pure truth
God offered him. Instead, he chose to stay with compromised
teachings that were more expedient, humanly.
Jesus Severely Punishes Compromise
If Reinhard continues
with the same, notice what God says He will do:
I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery
with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.
And I will kill her children with death.. (Rev
Kill her children with death!? What does that mean? Remember,
these are spiritual allegories! It’s what Jesus revealed in Person,
as explained in the publication Preparing A Flock For Slaughter.
Besides having to face trouble and slaughter in the Great
Tribulation – the Church will not be raptured away as many falsely
teach! – these people will not be saved because their conversion is
nominal only. Anyone who compromises – tolerates sin for the sake of
human expedience – will lose the Holy Spirit, and eventually lose
out on salvation, unless they repent.
That’s what Jesus means by: “I will kill her children with
These issues are serious! Deadly serious!
That’s why Jesus was so emphatic in the way He presented
Himself to Thyatirans (Rev
2:18-29). He appeared with eyes blazing with fire! He has fury! He
doesn’t tolerate sin or compromise!
He is pure, and adjures you to aim for purity, too. Those who
don’t want His level of holiness will be severely punished, as
...and all the churches will know that I am He who searches
the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according
to your works (Rev 2:23).
righteousness; He also ‘rewards’ wrongdoing! The wages of sin is
death! (Rom 6:23.)
Downfall Of Reinhard’s Ministry
I have explained
elsewhere that God revealed this to Kassahun Ayele, a prophet in
July 26/05. K.
Dream of Reinhard Bonnke
I was listening to Reinhard Bonnke preaching in a large
auditorium. He seemed very old and weak. The audience wasn’t
impressed by his preaching. The miracle-working power was also
gone from him.
Meaning: Reinhard’s ministry is on the wane. God is
removing much of the anointing that accompanied his ministry,
because it is time for God’s ‘new thing’ on earth. What this
ministry (Midnight Ministries) brings is part of that ‘new
thing’, restoring truth which has been neglected, ignored or
Many will reject this
revelation. They don’t walk by faith, merely by sight. What they see
at present contradicts what God revealed in that dream, so they
don’t believe it. (Most don’t believe in prophets either!)
What they see are
Reinhard’s massive campaigns and the miracles of healing that occur,
so they assume that all is well.
God gives revelations
like the above to show you what you CANNOT see. That’s why He
reveals it. He doesn’t need to reveal what you can easily see.
The dream predicts
the downfall of Reinhard’s ministry. When it will happen is up to
God, not man.
1. You need to know
how close Jesus’ coming is! It’s very close – a matter of only a few
years. Perhaps you can count them on the fingers of one hand. If
not, it’s not much longer than that!
How Soon Will
Jesus Come?, Will Jesus Come Soon? and The End of The
World provide some insight about this.
Does Reinhard preach
about the imminence of Jesus’ coming? Does he even realise?!
2. You need to get
ready. The parable of the ten bridesmaids or virgins in Matthew 25
is a now parable. It reveals the UNAWARENESS and UNPREPARED- NESS of all believers for Jesus’ coming, at this hour.
This is explained in
the booklet The Ten Virgins. Is Reinhard preparing people for
Jesus’ coming by restoring ‘lost’ truths, so that Jesus can come
back? No. He is unaware of the Work of Elijah today!
3. The Great
Tribulation of which Jesus fore- warned is just around the corner.
Is Reinhard aware? Is
he preparing people for what is coming? No. He doesn’t even know,
4. Consequently, a
flock is being prepared for SLAUGHTER! A tragic thought! But
5. In place of the
pure truth, Reinhard tolerates the concoction which the majority
regard as acceptable. And why do they regard it as acceptable?
Because it is what they were taught by others before them... and on
down the line. Many of the heresies tolerated by the Church today go
back an awful long way! In the case of Sunday-keeping, they have
their roots in the first century apostasy.
The traditions of men
– widespread dogma and teachings in churches that are a mix of
biblical truth and error – are the “things sacrificed to idols” (Rev
2:20). Reinhard presently values these traditions of men above pure
traditions and the pure truths of God which they replace are listed
on page 11 of the article
Bonnke, Evangelism & God’s Will, and articulated in A
Message To The Charismatic Church.
6. Reinhard doesn’t
encourage people to seek God for themselves. He puts himself forward
as their leader in his giant evangelistic ‘crusades’, and when
‘converted’ leaves them in the untried hands of church leaders whom
he has not tested to know whether they are true or false.
The miracles that God
has performed at his ‘crusades’ are not because Reinhard is in God’s
perfect will. They are because of God’s mercy, grace and love, in
response to the needs of the people.
When people read MM
literature such as Faith And Healing they get healed if they express
their faith. There is no fanfare, just the presence of God.
Isn’t it better to
teach people how to work out their own salvation, than to bring them
into bondage to church leaders, bound by false church traditions?
What does God want?
You have seen what He does NOT want. He doesn’t want compromise! He
doesn’t want an impure Bride. He will not accept her. He disowns
Jezebel and ‘kills her children with death.’
The Long Dead Will Rise
People don’t like
correction. For that reason they don’t like prophets. False prophets
may be heard – but not the true variety.
surfaces with questions such as “Who do you think you are?!” or
“What authority do you have for saying such things?!” The arrogant,
self- righteous religious leaders asked Jesus the same. They weren’t
really interested in His replies; merely in finding fault with the
truth. Things are the same today.
Jesus didn’t waste
much breath with them explaining about His authority as Prophet of
God. He let His Commission do the talking.
In answer to my
critics – who likewise choose to disbelieve, and reject the truth –
I say only one thing. People long dead will be raised. We have named
names in the article Waking The Dead.
And when this comes
to pass – surely it will come – then they will know that a prophet
has been among them (Ezek 33:33).
