Cleric urges three-day fasting, prayer for Bonnke’s crusade
A cleric, Apostle Alexander Bamgbola, has urged Christians to fast and pray for the success of the upcoming farewell crusade by world-renowned Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke.
Bamgbola is the Chairman, Central Working Committee of the crusade which would hold from November 8 to 12, in Lagos
On why Bonnke’s visit is very essential, especially at this time, Bamgbola told The Guardian: “It is common knowledge that a vast majority of Nigerians are living in perilous times, with grinding poverty, stark illiteracy and debilitating diseases staring everyone in the face.
“Crimes such as rape, ritual killings, kidnapping, armed robbery, drug addiction, fraud and mind-boggling homicidal cases, have combined with corruption, erosion of sacred values and a vacuum of Godly leadership, to make life very tough indeed for Nigerians.”
He said it was regrettable that all these seemed to defy solutions, from societal institutions and state actors alike, adding that it had become clear to most, if not all Nigerians, that only God has the solution.
According to him, despairing as the scenario is, hope is not lost after all, as “The Living God has actually sent help to us, the same way He saw the plight of the Israelites of old, and sent his prophet, Moses, to set the captives free from the bondage of Pharaoh.”
The chairman, who believes that Nigeria’s help has come, said: “The help that God has sent is in International Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, to whom He audibly and unmistakably spoke, to come to Africa, Lagos, Nigeria specifically, to hold a crusade for the last time in his ministerial career.
He explained that during his career, which has spanned more than a generation, God would mercifully extend His saving grace to millions, heal the sick, elevate the poor, free those in bondage of any kind and heal our land.
Bamgbola said beyond these, God wants to use Evangelist Bonnke for divinely ordained impartation purposes. Just as Elisha got a double portion of Elisha’s anointing, God will graciously use him to impart heaven-sent fire into the 200, 000 ministers who will attend the three-day Fire Conference.
He added that he would also personally minister to millions of souls at the crusade ground.
“Dead spiritual lives are about to be woken up, fresh spiritual fire is about to be lit on our altars, and new souls are about to be won for Christ. The sacred purpose of both the Fire Crusade and the Ministers’ Conference is to raise a nation of the righteous. The Bible has said it unequivocally that only righteousness exalts a nation,” he said.
