Prophetic Movement Pioneer Bill Hamon Celebrates 60 Years in Ministry

Dr. Bill Hamon, known around the world as the pioneer and father of the prophetic movement, is celebrating 60 years of ministry and 80 years of living. This will take place at Christian International's 27th annual International Gathering of Apostles & Prophets, October 21-24, 2014 in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.

Hamon and his wife Evelyn are celebrating their 59th year of marriage, from which they have raised three children—all in the ministry with them—and have 11 grandchildren and 14 great grandchildren.

Hamon believes his first 30 years of ministry (1954-1984) was preparation for his second 30 years of ministry (1984-2014). During his first 30 years, he spent 6 as Pastor, 3 as Evangelist, 5 as Bible College Teacher and 16 as Founder and President of Christian International School of Theology. During the last 30 years, he has been a prophet to the nations. Hamon has personally prophesied to 50,000 individuals, including presidents, kings and heads of nations, as well as thousands of saints. In the early 1980s, he prophesied a coming move of God that would restore prophets and apostles back into the Church. The Prophetic Movement was later birthed at CI's second International Prophets Conference on October 15, 1988.

His major revelation and teaching is on the restoration movements of the Church and the coming moves of God. He wrote the only book in existence that covers all major restoration movements that have happened over the last 500 years, from the Protestant Movement to the Prophetic-Apostolic Movement—The Eternal Church. He knew that for a restoration movement to be properly established, maintain biblical balance and maturity, books had to be written to accomplish that.

Personally prophesied to 50,000 people over 60 years.....Ignoring question of the real nature of this “gift”......

People divided by years divided by 365 give us .... lets see...... He personally prophecies to 2.28 people per day.

Presumably since we know there are 50,000 of them we can contact the office of records for their names ? Or was this some “wild guess” ........
