Standing in front of half a million people on a rainy evening, with a divine burden to bring blessings to the brokenhearted, ready to preach the good news with power and authority, and pleading with the Lord to stop the lashing rains and very soon to the amazement of everyone gathered there, the heavy downpour comes to a standstill, people fold their umbrellas and begin to listen to the Word of God delivered through him with rapturous attention and a renewed hope – an apt description of Dr. Paul Dhinakaran, a mighty apostle of God from the land of India. This is only a small miracle in the global ministry of Dr. Paul Dhinakaran that is filled with numerous signs and wonders and the abounding grace of God, attended by over 300,000 people in an evening meeting addressed by him. He is endowed by God with the gifts of prophecy, Word of knowledge, healings and faith as he brings God’s word prophetically to people, the nations and churches and the Lord does miracles when he prays for people and nations.
Born on 4th September 1962, he entered his youthhood away from God, deeply depressed and fully gripped with a fear regarding his future. But the Lord spoke to him through his father Late D.G.S. Dhinakaran, a Prophet that touched his life deeply. His life never remained the same again. He began to prosper in wisdom and knowledge. After completing his MBA, he was the first student in the University of Madras to earn a PhD in management science at the young age of 27.
