Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: Let us take hold of God and ask Him, “Demonstrate the power of the gospel of Jesus in my life, so the world can see my life change. God, where is the power of the gospel?” We’re not seeking silly things, sensationalism, or a show. We’re seeking God, that He would glorify the name of Jesus in us and through us, that the world might see and know that Jesus is alive from the dead. That’s what it’s all about, not about our groups, ministries, or denominations. It’s about the name of Jesus, Yeshua, being exalted, that the Jewish people, gentiles, and people who identify as Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, atheists, and nominal Christians worldwide would come to know the real Savior: the Risen One, the Eternal One, the Lord of all, the King of kings. Where is the evidence in our lives, our churches, our congregations, our ministries; where is the evidence that Jesus has risen from the dead? That’s what the world needs to see; it will cut through the resistance and mockery, and people will come to know the real Jesus!
Dr. Brown’s Bottom Line: The greatest, most powerful, most awesome, most extraordinary message that anyone can ever hear is that God sent His Son to die for the sins of the world; that we who rebel, who are guilty, who spit in the face of a holy God, can not only receive mercy, but new life and righteousness, and we can become sons and daughters of God, heirs together with Jesus. It’s extraordinary, but there’s something even more; He transforms us! Jesus not only forgives us from our sins, He frees us from them. Jesus not only deals with the penalty of sin, but also its power. I want to encourage you to explore the glorious gospel of Jesus, to open the word and believe what God says, and to ask Him, “God, where is the power of the gospel? The kingdom of God is not a matter of words only, but a matter of power. Where is the demonstration of the resurrection of Jesus? Lord show it in my life, and show it to this dying world.”

Whatever Happened to the Power of God? by Dr. Brown
Meet Reinhard Bonnke:
Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke is principally known for his Great Gospel Campaigns throughout the Continent of Africa. The son of a pastor, Reinhard gave his life to the Lord at age nine, and heard the call to the African mission field before he was even a teenager. After attending Bible College in Wales, and his ordination in Germany he pastored a church and then went on to start missionary work in Africa. It was there, in the small mountain kingdom of Lesotho, that God placed upon his heart the vision of ‘the continent of Africa, being washed in the precious Blood of Jesus’ — an entire continent, from Cape Town to Cairo and from Dakar to Djibouti that needed to be reached and to hear the proclamation of the signs-following Gospel.
He began holding meetings in a tent that accommodated just 800 people, but, as attendance steadily increased, larger and larger tents had to be purchased, until finally, in 1984, he commissioned the construction of the world’s largest mobile structure — a tent capable of seating 34,000 people! Soon, attendance at his meetings even exceeded the capacity of this huge structure, and he began open-air Gospel Campaigns with an initial gathering of over 150,000 people per service! Since then, he has conducted city-wide meetings across the continent with as many as 1,600,000 people attending a single meeting using towering sound systems that can be heard for miles.
