“The saints are being trained now in the military bases of international training centers and their local church armories. The goal is to have them taught, equipped and field trained to be the officers that lead God’sarmy of prophetic evangelist saints during the coming Saints Movement. They will minister under the covering and leadership of fivefold apostolic and prophetic generals who trained them. These saints will function like God’s army prophetically described by Prophet Joel (Joel 2:1-11). (Prophets and the Coming Moves of God, Hamon)
Joel's army is what was popularized in the Vineyard churches by Paul Cain and Jack Deere and was misinterpreted; it is not a good army, they come against Israel a ravage the land, it is destructive, it is a judgment.
Gathered around their leaders they are being led on a course of dominion that will affect the education, the governments as Joel's army. They are not always giving messages in the church. Social Transformation Conference, a Harvard Extension service and leadership society student group has both Hamon and Lance Wallnau speak (Ceo, Lance Learning group are speakers among others).
“With the birthing of the Saints Movement we have learned that every believer is called to be a five-fold minister in their sphere of influence, whether that is the church, marketplace, government, etc. One pivotal ministry in the body of Christ is that of the watchman prophet.” (April 2011 Christian International ministries).
To claim their ministry is in the category of a watchman is hysterically comedic. Considering the mass confusion and disarray now present in the church from the introduction of their malfeasant apostolic government and prophetic platitudes, we cannot afford to be dismissive of their hubris large scale influence. They have backing, numbers and money and they mean what they say. Their reputations are at stake on their prophecies.
“During these final years of the mortal Church, there will be great restoration and revival….Christian groups will establish Christian communities.…Some of these communities will evolve into small Christian cities which will be a prelude and prototype of the Kingdom to come. Christians will invent many things which will make their cities self-sufficient and independent of government control….There will be greater miracles of quality and quantity performed than have ever been recorded in church history. This will cause hundreds of millions to turn to Christ.” (Bill Hamon, The Eternal Church 1986, pp. 388–89.)
Here we have Hamon put forth a millennial prototype within nations that will have a greater influence than any missionary movement in history. This is part of his prophetic teaching from new revelation because the Bible does not teach any such thing taking place.
On the Scripture “behold I will send you Elijah the prophet” Hamon calls this a John the Baptist group.
“John came in the power and spirit of the PROPHET Elijah. Just as one PROPHET, John the baptist prepared the way for Christ's first coming, now a COMPANY OF PROPHETS will prepare the way for Christ's second coming. That COMPANY OF PROPHETS is being raised up in the 1980s. God revealed to me that there are 10,000 PROPHETS on the North American continent alone being prepared to be released within the Church. This COMPANY OF PROPHETS will come forth in the power and spirit of Elijah. They, as a corporate body of PROPHETS, will fulfill the prophecy of Malachi in relation to Christ`s second coming as John the Baptist fulfilled it in relation to Christ's first coming. A single PROPHET prepared the way for the Messiah of Israel and Redeemer of mankind. The COMPANY OF PROPHETS will prepare the way for Jesus the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The one PROPHET prepared the way for Jesus to come and usher in the Church Age; the many PROPHETS will prepare the way for Jesus to come and usher in the kingdom age(“Prophets And Personal Prophecy”).
God revealed 10,000 Elijah type prophets, wow, one would be enough. in fact the bible says only one but Hamon has new revelation that speaks a new interpretation of this Old Testament verse..
“Those who look to the Church for the signs of the nearness of the coming of the Lord can proclaim the restoration of the PROPHET ministry and the COMPANY OF PROPHETS as the greatest sign of the nearness of His coming in this century.---- the majority of denominational ministers will not recognize the greatest sign of the century, the Elijah COMPANY OF PROPHETS that the Holy spirit is raising up to make the proper preparation for the coming of our King Jesus and His dominion over all the earth “ (“Prophets And Personal Prophecy” p.23)
He may be right that The COMPANY OF PROPHETS as the
greatest sign of the nearness of His coming. This is what Jesus warned
Notice he says the majority will not recognize this elite prophet group. I think we need to pause and consider that this was exactly what was tried in the Latter Rain with Branham. Gordon Lindsay describes a prophecy given at a Branham meeting which said, “...that as John the Baptist was sent as a forerunner of the Lord's first coming, so was He sending forth this evangelist [William Branham] and others like him to move the people and prepare them for His second coming” (WILLIAM BRANHAM, A MAN SENT FROM GOD By Gordon Lindsay Editor of the Voice Of Healing In Collaboration With William Branham p. 105).
It began as a group but Branham became the single individual as he applied it to himself.
Dr. Bill Hamon explains, “The restoration of the Elijah Company of the prophets is so dear to the heart of Jesus, for it will be this company of the last day prophets that prepare the way for His Second Coming ... the prophets will also help restore and call forth Apostles of power and restoration for the Church unity and perfection...” (source discernment ministries newsletter Mar/Apr. 1993). This “Elijah Company” consists of many who plan of setting up the Kingdom here on the earth first, after this is accomplished they will cordial enough to invite Jesus to come to sit on the throne.
“World conditions will come to the place that human hearts will be failing them for fear. The manipulators that control the economy, stock market, and world banking systems will lose their control. … Only those who know how to hear and speak the true mind of Christ and the Word of God will have the answers. The Joseph and Daniel Prophetic company will arise with the supernatural answers for the needs of the Egyptian Pharaohs, and Babylonian emperors of this world. The prophetic church will finally demonstrate fully that Jesus Christ really is the answer for the world-not only to save them from their sins, but to bring peace on earth and goodwill toward all people.” (“Prophets And Personal Prophecy” Bill Hamon)
I guess one can name a company after any prophet in the Bible. It’s not enough that we can apply the lessons or application of these men in our lives but now we have global prophet companies named after them to speak answers to all the world leaders for the purpose of turning this around. They missed their opportunity with Khaddafi and others; Rick Joyner and Paul Cain visited Saddam Hussein and that worked out demonstrating Jesus as the answer. Kim Clement is just one of these prophets who predicted that Saddam Hussein would be captured in October of 2003. (Behind the Scenes, Trinity Broadcasting Network, Sept. 9, 2003.)
We have “Elijah company,” “Elijah Generation,” “Elijah Revolution,” and Elijah airlines; -- okay not yet. Apostles Lou Engle and Jim Goll in The Call of the Elijah Revolution describe a generation that refuses “to compromise with the Jezebel spirit in the land.”
They also operate with mathematical prophetic identification and insight:
“In our generation, years ending with eight have been significant in restoration movements - in 1948, the Latter Rain Restoration Movement began(Hamon Prophetic Scriptures Yet to be Fulfilled)
These prophets use numbers to decipher the future. Bill Hamon: The Word of the Lord for 1999 We have never had one-nine-nine-nine before. Nine is the number of the Holy Spirit. One is unity. With one, unity/God and triple Holy Spirit or Godhead, there must be something good in this year! But everything that's good for God's people becomes judgment to the wicked.” (message by Dr. Bill Hamon on December 31, 1998 - “The Church Aligned in 1999 To Arise and Shine In God's Appointed Time” )
These prophets have so much authority that they can see and order angels around. Speaking at the National School of Prophets in January of 1999, Hamon spoke of a vision encounter with Michael the archangel:
“I was walking up towards the throne of God and I saw Jesus there and this gigantic, big angel and as I walked up it seemed like I moved over here and I listened and I heard the Lord say “Michael, this is General Hamon. General Hamon, this is General Michael.” And I watched as we strategized and God says “From this day forward I give you authority. When you call for Michael, he will bring a legion of angels and they will fight and war and I give you comradeship and I give you cooperation, and I'm anointing you to join angelic hosts and the army of the Lord of the saints to win my battle.”
Now, everybody that's willing to be a warrior, raise your hand, because angels are coming for assignments to co-labor with us. You've had your guardian angels. This is a new angel. This is a war angel. I say this is a war angel.”
After he has convinced the audience of this what Hamon does next is very disturbing and shows his real beliefs.
“Jesus, Commander in Chief, I call for General Michael and the host of war angels; come and appoint yourself companions…now, now, now! Whish! Yeah! Yeah, here they come! Here they come! Yeah! Accept them! Accept them! Woo, woo, woo, woo, woo, woo, woo! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Angels! I see angels all over! Big, warring angels! Warring angels! War angels! Yes! Yes! Whish! Whish! Come on! Sing in the Spirit. Say, “Here I am! I join with God's angelic host. I join with the army of the Lord.”
Cindy Jacobs inserted herself into this malaise, stating she foresees revival coming to the Latter-day Saints Temple in Salt Lake City and to Freemasons within the Southern Baptist Convention. She speaks of God giving instant sex-change operations to transvestites on New Orleans’s debauched Bourbon Street. She notes that the anointing of the Holy Spirit now resides in her left arm, having moved from her right arm.
All this resulted in a flood of angels filling the room: “God says ‘From this day forward I give you authority. When you call for Michael, he will bring a legion of angels and they will fight and war and I give you comradeship and I give you cooperation, and I’m adjoining you to join angelic hosts and the army of the Lord of the saints to win My battle’ and God’s raising up angels, and we’re going to call them in right now….Jesus, Commander-in-Chief, I call for General Michael and the host of war angels, come and appoint yourself companions now, now, now! Whoosh! Yeah! Yeah, here they come! Here they come! Yeah. Accept them! Accept them!” (National School of the Prophets Conference, January 29, 1999)
Michael is the angel that guards Israel, but Hamon (and others) can summon him and order him around. This is the authority they teach others to have. We have all heard the saying loose lips sink ships, by their mouths they could raise the Titanic.
