Famed evangelist: God told me 'America will be saved'

EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the second story in a seven-part series by veteran journalist Troy Anderson about major evangelists who are turning their attention toward America to help ignite what Billy Graham describes as an end-times “great spiritual awakening.” The first story featured Graham’s warning for America

At a time when pollsters say the United States is fast becoming a “post-Christian” nation, international evangelist Reinhard Bonnke believes God has a different vision for the future of America.

Bonnke – whose ministry, Christ for all Nations, has recorded 72 million people responding to the call of salvation in Africa and elsewhere – claims God spoke to him in a dream last year saying, “America will be saved!”

“I’m moving on in years, but I tell you I still want to kick the devil before I kick the bucket,” Bonnke, 73, told thousands of people, mostly youth, gathered recently on the first day of the Jesus Culture Conference in Universal City, Calif. “America will be saved! America will be saved! That’s what the Holy Spirit told me.”

The prediction is similar to one Bonnke made in 1972 when he claimed God told him in a dream, “All Africa shall be saved!”

At the time, like now, many people thought “this was impossible,” Bonnke told the 6,000 people gathered at the event sponsored by Jesus Culture, an international Christian revivalist youth outreach ministry based out of Bethel Church in Redding, Calif.

The ministry – which also operates a popular record label, Jesus Culture Music – is known for its lively spirit-filled conferences, youth dancing during Jesus Culture songs and by its moniker, “A New Breed of Emerging Revivalists.”

  1. In the OT, the false prophets used to say that all Israel would be saved from the Babylonians, while a few prophets warned of coming judgment. Who was correct?

    America is in deep trouble, and shows no sign of widespread repentance.
