THOUSANDS of people braved heavy rains to see globally famous evangelist, Benny Hinn preach at River Park Ministries in East London last night.
Hinn was invited as a guest preacher for the 2014 Get Ready Conference.
He told the enthusiastic crowd that packed the auditorium that if people wanted revival they need the Holy Spirit.
“All of us as believers, the Holy Spirit is all we have and need,” he said.
Many had asked him about Jesus, to which he had said: “He is the sweetest, most gracious, kind, tender, colourful, exciting person I’ve met.”
Hinn spoke about the Christian Trinity and how believers had been given life through the finished works of Jesus Christ.
He also touched on the Holy Spirit and how it was “Jesus unlimited”.
People from all walks of life flocked to the venue to see a man known around the world for performing miracles.
Rose Magaqa, 68, said she had waited in anticipation to see what God could do for her through Hinn.
“In 2001 I received healing from just watching Benny Hinn at my house and I decided to come and see him face to face,” she said.
Magaqa said she was at the conference to worship and thank God for all he had done in her life.
“I am not here to worship Benny. He is an anointed man of God, that we can not deny,” she said.
Another believer, Nonzwakazi Xabakashe, echoed Magaqa’s sentiments saying Hinn discouraged people from worshipping him instead of God.
“There are always people that God entrusts to spread the gospel and do miraculous things and Benny is one of them. We had to come here and see God do miracles and wonders,” said Xabakashe
Thembisa Msauli said it first time at the conference.
“I am trusting God for healing because all the people I’ve heard talk about Benny they had received healing,” she said.
Msauli said was diabetic and was losing her eyesight.
Many who gathered outside the auditorium were trusting God for supernatural healing through Hinn. There were different age groups, from teenagers to pensioners and different racial groups.
“My sister was healed by Benny and I believe I will leave this place feeling refreshed and healed,” Bukelwa Luxomo said.
“We want complete healing both spiritually and physically,” she said.
Lindiwe Skenjane, 65, said 2014 was the year of favour and it was eve desire to see that favour over their lives.
“I want to know more and wisdom and see favour in my life,” Skenjane said.
