Founder of World's Largest Megachurch Dies at 85

David Yonggi Cho, pastor of the world's largest megachurch, died Tuesday morning, his church said in a press release. He was 85.

Cho is the founder of Yoido Full Gospel Church in Seoul, South Korea and spent decades spreading the gospel in that country.

At the time of his death, Cho had been receiving medical treatment for a brain hemorrhage he suffered from in 2020.

Jonathan Cahn Asks, 'Is There a Scripture That Changed the Course of American History?'

In January 2012, Jonathan Cahn's blockbuster book The Harbinger was released, and it foretold the events that have now come upon our nation—everything from 9/11, to a worldwide pandemic, to civil unrest, to the collapse of the global economy.

Yet, the mystery of The Harbinger has never stopped. Today in 2021, it is still coming to fulfillment—and it's at a much more dangerous stage. And so, after eight years, Cahn has written the long-awaited sequel, The Harbinger II: The Return.

This stunning book reveals the parallels between the signs of judgment that appeared in the last days of ancient Israel and the same signs of judgment that have now appeared in America.
