As I have criss-crossed the world and Africa, I have become the focus of attacks of satan many times. In Africa, millions love me- I love them all! But there are a few who hate me and you know, shall I tell you who the ones are that hate me? They are the sorcerers. They are the witches because they say when Bonnke comes to town our business goes bankrupt. I take it as a compliment!
Many times, witches and sorcerers came to curse me. In one Crusade, four witches came and they said, “We’re going to curse Bonnke.” I didn’t know anything about such hocus pocus but this is what happened: four came and they said, “We’ll position ourselves at the four corners of his Crusade site.”
Then they were synchronising their watches and they said, “The same split second when Bonnke preaches, we’re going to call up evil spirits. We will hurl them against him on the platform and he will be paralysed.” I sat on my chair there. The singers were singing…far too long for my taste.
You know, when your gun is loaded, it’s a torment if you can’t pull the trigger. I sat there- I smelt nothing of demons at all. But when I sat there I felt the anointing of the Holy Spirit under me, around me, everywhere! Then they said, “Now, Evangelist Bonnke will come to the microphone.” And I said, “Hallelujah!” That one little “Hallelujah” was enough and it snapped four times. Snap! Snap! Snap! Snap! Those four sorcerers came together and said, “Bonnke is too powerful- we can never curse him.”
They got into contact with the biggest witch on earth and said, “Please fly to Africa. We’ll pay your first class ticket. Come and curse Bonnke.”
I don’t want to keep you in too much suspense but I already want to tell you that that was a 1st class mistake! That witch came. I was in another Crusade. Those four sorcerers were sitting in the middle of the crowd. That big witch was sitting in-between. I was sitting on my chair. I didn’t smell any devil. I felt the anointing. Hallelujah! Blessed be the Name of Jesus!
They said, “Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke is going to preach.” I jumped up and took the microphone and just said a little “Hallelujah!” That moment, that big witch that had come first class had an asthma attack. She started to wheeze, “I’m dying. I’m dying. Take me out!” They carried her out. I nearly went down to pray for her because you know we happen to pray for the sick!
Now, you say, “Reinhard, how do you know all this?” Good question! I tell you how I know all this: one of those four sorcerers came back. He stood in front of me shaking like a leaf in the wind. He told me the whole story. He said to me, “Bonnke, today I have seen that your Jesus is stronger than my Lucifer!”
“There, God has highly exalted Him and given Him a Name above every name!”
He said to me, “I want your Jesus.”
All devils were cast out of him!
My latest information is that he’s an evangelist filled with the Holy Spirit. There is power in the blood of Jesus! No matter what the devil works up, you don’t need to swallow what he cooks up! We are bought with a price! If I look after my property and you look after your property, God looks after His property! We are marked with the precious blood of Jesus!
We are not up for chances!
We are safe and secure in the arms of Jesus!
