2 Kings 2:11-12 (King James Version)
And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.
And Elisha saw it, and he cried, My father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.
2 Kings 13:14 (King James Version)
Now Elisha was fallen sick of his sickness whereof he died. And Joash the king of Israel came down unto him, and wept over his face, and said, O my father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof.
Today Bro.Dhinakaran has gone to be with the Lord. Its really a great loss for us all….
He was a man, who walked with God like Enoch… He brought the light of Jesus Christ into the lives of millions of souls…
No one could fill his place today… Personally, my life and my family exists because of his life, prayer and ministry…
My heart cries for him today… His life speaks to me of the call of God and to have a closer walk with Him…
Heaven would have welcomed him Home today! Jesus would have received him saying, “Well done, my good and faithful servant, Enter into your Master’s rest!”
May God himself grant His peace to his beloved family members!!
CBNNews.com – Well-known evangelist DR. D.G.S. Dhinakaran passed away Tuesday at the age of 73.
The long-time friend of The Christian Broadcasting Network and Dr. M.G. “Pat” Robertson is known for huge evangelistic crusades along with his Jesus Calls ministry.
Dhinakaran, considered by many of his peers as the “apostle of this age to India”, was known for holding powerful prayer rallies guided by the Holy Spirit, where he’d call out the names of people who were in the crowd, reveal their exact needs, and minister directly to them.
Dhinakaran was joined by Robertson at one rally not long after the beginning of the new millenium in Hyderabad, India, where they ministered to 500,000 people. He also worked closely with Robertson through the years in establishing CBN ministries in India.
The Indian evangelist’s biography tells of a 20-year-old young man caught in poverty and unemployment at the point of taking his life. On his way to throw himself in front of a speeding train, he was stopped by his uncle who introduced him to Jesus Christ. He said an immediate peace overwhelmed him, and he went home with hope and a new purpose for his life.
The young Dhinakaran worked at a bank and ended up becoming a top executive for the company. Yet he had a heart for ministry that compelled him to start the Jesus Calls ministry.
Later, he had a vision of the Lord Jesus appearing to him, asking him to train lay people like himself to reach the people of his nation and other parts of Asia with the good news of the Gospel.
Later he started radio and television ministries across India. He also started other ministries related to Jesus Calls ministry, wrote books, and influenced many people in all walks of life for God.
