Bill Hamon Leads Efforts to Connect Generations of Prophets

by | Jun 12, 2020 | Prophetic Insight

On May 26, I had the honor of interviewing Bishop Bill Hamon and Elizabeth Tiam-Fook on my livestream, Adventures in Prophecy.

Hamon is called the “pioneer of the modern-day prophetic movement,” who has taught, trained and activated countless people in prophecy around the world and founded Christian International.

Tiam-Fook is the founder of International Young Prophets, which serves the office of the next generation prophet. I first met her during a conference in Norfolk, Virginia where I was later part of a prophetic roundtable with a medium sized group of prophetic voices in the Hampton Roads area.

During the special hour-long episode, I was struck at how Hamon and Tiam-Fook honored one another. They were modeling how important it is for each generation to run together. To pray, minister and prophesy together.

I was reminded of how Moses and Joshua would go into the tent of meeting in Exodus 33. Verse 11 says, “The Lord spoke to Moses face to face, just as a man speaks to his friend. When he returned to the camp, his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, did not depart from the tent.”

Moses and Joshua were of different generations, but they prayed together. Joshua would participate and see Moses’ prayer life as they were in God’s presence. But Joshua understood that even though Moses was God’s friend and spoke to Him face to face, he needed his own encounter and friendship with God. Joshua watched Moses carefully and applied the principles he saw in Moses, staying in the tent to pray.

We need generations of fivefold ministry gifts praying and ministering together. We should give our elders who lead us well double honor. And the young, emerging apostles and prophets should imitate those who have paid the price before them like Bishop Hamon. We should glean all the spiritual truths and wisdom we can and then seek God’s face for our own encounter.

It’s no secret that from the place of prayer we learn to prophesy. But when we are running together with generations in mind, I believe there is a supernatural acceleration and blessing.

Tiam-Fook said each generation needs each other. Our generation needs the older generation, and together we need the younger generation. Unfortunately, there are ministries that won’t allow older, more experienced apostles and prophets to speak into their lives. But then there are some who won’t listen to anyone younger than they are. This should never be the case.

God has generations in mind to multiply His kingdom on earth. Psalm 145:4 says, “One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts.” Mutual friendship, mentoring and accountability are needed. Ecclesiastes 4:12 (NLT) says, “A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.”

At the end of the interview, I asked Hamon and Tiam-Fook to lead us in a prophetic activation. Encouraging those watching or later listening in to my podcast to participate. It was a powerful time as Hamon gave the scriptural foundations to be activated. And through this they modeled several generations working, ministering and running together.

I want to encourage you to consider who to run with in the generations before you or after you. And. reach out to them and start meeting with them today.
