Pastor Benny Hinn Pays Tribute to Late Paul Yonggi Cho
Benny Hinn and Dr David Yonngi Cho have always had a deep love and respect for each other. Several times Benny Hinn and Yonngi Cho shared the same platform as they preached the gospel to millions per time.
Benny Hinn took time to pen a long tribute to the late Pastor Cho and a part of the speech stated that “Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. Certainly this is true for Dr. David Yonggi Cho, the faithful, godly South Korean pioneer, who blazed worldwide trails during his momentous years as pastor of the world’s largest congregation, prayer warrior, broadcaster, innovator, leader, evangelist, educator, author, statesman, husband, and father”.
Pastor Benny’s tribute further read: “(Yonngi Cho) was perhaps best known as the proponent of small cell groups that eventually built his fledgling tent church in 1958 to more than 800,000 members, with 400 pastors and evangelists as well as 500 missionaries around the globe”
Pastor Benny then took his teeming followers through memory lane as he wrote affectionately about his deceased friend “Who could have known such a remarkable legacy would come from an impoverished rural youth who picked up English from American soldiers and eventually worked as a translator by the time he was 15 for a nearby military base?” Hinn wrote.
“As a teenager he was stricken with tuberculosis and began rethinking his Buddhist beliefs. He began reading a Bible given to him by a young female friend. Languishing in a hospital, he desperately cried out to God, “I want to live! Please help me!”
“After he was cured and released from the hospital, he openly gave all the glory for his healing to Almighty God. That led him to a Bible college in Seoul and a life of epic adventure as a groundbreaking Christian leader”
According to Hinn, Cho often said “All I did was offer my life just like the boy who offered Jesus the five loaves and two fish, I simply held onto the dreams that the Lord gave me. And I learned to pray with a do-or-die desperateness.” Herein lies the secret of one of the greatest pastors the world has ever seen- prayer!
Pastor E.A Adeboye also spoke of a life sold out to prayers as the secret of Cho’s hugely successful ministry. Yonngi Cho literally turned Seoul, South Korea to a Mecca of some sort as pilgrims from all over the world came in droves to the Yoido Full Gospel Church to find out what the secret of such church growth was.
This year has seen the demise of some very prominent church leaders including Prophet TB Joshua. One is left to wonder who is going to fill in the huge spaces these departing generals are leaving behind.
