Hinn: I will preach to Muslims
A tsunami of praise, worship, Holy Ghost anointing and healing swept through the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo at the weekend, as American televangelist Pastor Benny Hinn’s miracle crusade attracted thousands. Hinn was a special guest of Woodbrook Pentecostal pastors Osbert and Angela Williams. They were joined by other leaders from the Full Gospel hierarchy like Oswald James and broadcaster Margaret Elcock for the weekend event.
On Saturday, Hinn, popularly dubbed “a servant of God,” shared a prophetic word about himself to the thousands who turned out. Hinn said, “Before I die, I will preach to the Muslims in the Arab world. I will preach in Egypt, Lebanon, Syria and Iran. I will preach in Tehran. I will do it under the umbrella of God. And see its impact. The door is being opened.” During the service, Hinn preached a message of salvation.
Hinn said, “The greatest miracle is salvation. Receive Jesus Christ.” He also preached a message of prosperity which reminded everyone about the wealth of Old Testament patriarchs like Abraham, Joseph and Solomon. Hinn said, “There is coming a transfer of wealth to the Church in Trinidad. God will take the wealth of the sinner and put it in your hands. You are the next wealthiest person. The Lord wants to bless you.”
As a boy, Hinn was taught by Catholic monks and nuns who preached poverty was the way to get to Heaven. When he read the Scriptures, Hinn said, “The faithful man will abound with blessings.”
People confess to healing
When Hinn issued the call for healing, people in wheelchairs, the infirm and weak were brought forward. They were supported by Hinn’s team members. Although they remained anonymous, several people testified afterwards about “the warm feeling” that had miraculously cured them from arthritis, diabetes, heart ailments and even urinary tract infections.
Hinn told a Barbadian couple, Jenelle and Victoria, that they would get deeper in God’s ministry. While Hinn was speaking, a bit of oil appeared on Victoria’s hand. Hinn told Angela Williams that “a revival would come to Trinidad in part through her.” Speaking about the event, Pastor Williams said, “It is wonderful to have Hinn. Our nation needs him at this time.”
