KYNAN:  Hello friends! This is “Something More!” And I’m Dr. Kynan Bridges and we have a very special guest today seen by many as a pioneer and father of the prophetic movement and really an apostolic leader in the prophetic. We have Dr. Bishop Bill Hamon.


BILL: 
Amen!


KYNAN: 
God bless you! Good to have you today.


BILL: 
It’s good to be here. Amen!


KYNAN: 
I’m so excited! You know you’re someone I’ve looked up to for years and read many of your materials and you’ve activated thousands of people in the prophetic. You’ve planted churches and ministries all around the world. Over 900 ministers in the United States and four or five or six thousand.  


BILL: 
Four thousand around.


KYNAN: 
Four thousand around the world! I mean that’s amazing! You’ve seen great things! And I want you to just tell our viewers today some of your backstory. You know you talk about getting saved and you talk about how the Holy Spirit took you through that process. Just share a little about that with us.


BILL: 
Well you know what I say to some people my first 30 years of ministry was preparation for my next 30 plus!


KYNAN: 
I see.


BILL: 
And the reason I say “30 plus” is cause I’m already in 62 years of ministry!


KYNAN: 
Oh wow! Wow.


BILL: 
So I’m not running out yet! I’m going to preach till I’m 95!


KYNAN:
Wow! Wow!


BILL: 
And I’m only 82 right now. (LAUGHING)


KYNAN: 
Okay.


BILL: 
So I’ve got a plenty of time to go!


KYNAN: 
You look great! You look great!


BILL: 
But you know to try to cover it all this is what I say. I just try to tell people I got saved when I was 16 years old. My religious background was American heathen.


KYNAN: 
(LAUGHING)


BILL: 
I was never inside of a church before I got saved in an old Brush Arbor meeting down in the hills of Oklahoma. But a lady came from 200 miles away in Oklahoma City down and preached way out there 5 miles out in that little ol’ community and God sent her all the way down there I think just to get me because I was the only young man that got saved through the whole meeting.


KYNAN: 
Wow!


BILL: 
But from that launched me. And I was second night I went to the altar and got filled with the Holy Spirit. Spoke in tongues. And then I attended my little Assembly of God churches for the next 2 years and then I moved down to Amarillo Texas and started attending a Restoration Church and a prophet laid hands on me and prophesied over me cause I had a desire to be in the ministry.


KYNAN: 
Hmm.


BILL: 
You know when you think of being a prophet people think you got to have a vision of Jesus or an out-of-body experience. All He did to get me was to have a divine desire to be in the ministry. Well this prophet said stay where you are right now but I’ll open a door and you’ll be in the ministry. Well that was in ’53 and in February of ’54 I had gone to Bible College for 6 months and it split down the middle and I went out and started pastoring a church. 


KYNAN: 
Now let me ask you something about that experience. You talk about, you talk about this experience with the Holy Spirit. 


BILL: 
Yeah.


KYNAN: 
And that really stood out to me and I want to talk about that because that leads into a very powerful revelation that the Lord gave you. Tell us a little about that experience with the Holy Spirit. 


BILL: 
Well I’ve realized that my calling really is establish people in the restoration and the Holy Ghost. My years are 1950, 60 and 70. My main mission was getting people filled with the Holy Spirit. And so then He involved me in the restoration teaching so my ministry’s been knowing   the restoration movements. But to get me there I went to Bible College in Portland Oregon in 1953 and they announced that they was going to have a prophetic presbytery on October the 1st and so they wanted everybody to fast 3 days to be qualified to be a candidate and I was already on a 3-day fast so I extended it to 3 more and went 9 days water only. And that night they called out an old man, about 41 years old.  


KYNAN: 
(LAUGHING


BILL: 
He had already been a missionary. We were 19, most of us were in our teenage and early twenties. And then they   had him kneel to a chair and they prophesied over him and then sent him back. Then they called me up and then had me kneel down and prophesied over me. It’s in my book “Prophets and Personal Prophecy.” I put it in there. And they gave me a prophecy. Now they didn’t have faith in those days just to call anybody a Prophet or Apostle. 


KYNAN: 
Right. Right.


BILL: 
Nobody took the title Prophet or Apostle back in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.


KYNAN: 
Right. Right.


BILL: 
And so they just described all of the characteristics of a prophet.


KYNAN: 
Right.


BILL: 
It was about 1956 before a couple came though and prophesied to me I’m calling you to be a prophet.


KYNAN: 
Wow.


BILL: 
But they laid hands on me and gave me a prophetic presbytery. And then after that I moved in prophetic presbytery and prophesied over different ones during my years of evangelistic travel and then I taught in a Bible college 5 years. Prophesied over a lot of the students. But the most I’d ever seen prophesied over in one setting was about 15 to 20 people.


KYNAN: 
Oh wow!


BILL: 
Even in prophetic presbytery or individual.


KYNAN: 
Wow.
