Bill Hamon's California earthquake prophetic word

There has been a lot of interest here in my posts about prophecies of earthquakes in the USA. I reported that David Wilkerson prophesied one probably not in California – now easily my most popular post ever. I embedded a video of Rick Joyner discussing a prophecy by Bob Jones of an earthquake on the west coast, and quoted some similar text by Joyner. Meanwhile, as I reported, Mark Stibbe was prophesying earthquakes here in Britain.

Dr Bill HamonSo it was perhaps no surprise to find today that Dr Bill Hamon has also published a prophecy concerning a California earthquake. Hamon is well known for his prophetic ministry. But it was very interesting to read what Hamon had to say, including his principles of prophecy which start with:

We must understand that all prophecies of judgment or blessing can be postponed, lessened or cancelled even if they were God inspired.

Thus he agrees with me that Christians should not flee from California in response to the earthquake prophecies. Rather,

God wants to bring great spiritual awakening and revival to California.  If the churches and intercessors of California will pray and intercede the big earthquake will not take place in 2011.  The Church in California must get serious with God.

Hamon does predict an earthquake in California, but not as a word from God:

The Science Daily News stated in their paper April 16, 2008.  “California has more than a 99% chance of having a magnitude 6.7 or larger earthquake within the next 30 years.  The likelihood of a major quake of magnitude 7.5 or greater in the next 30 years is 46% and such a quake is most likely to occur in the southern half of the state.”  Only the prayers of the Saints can prevent it from happening.

So Hamon concludes:

My prophetic admonition to California Christians is for you to take no action based on fear, but only move by divine revelation and faith.  Jesus is your only protection and provision regardless where you are in America or anywhere in the world.  I pray for the spirit of wisdom and revelation to rest upon all Christians in California. Amen.

Amen! Also for the same spirit to rest on all Christians anywhere in the world who are in fear because of earthquake prophecies. If these words are genuine they are intended as warnings for the church to take action, not by running away but in prayer. David’s fearful wish in Psalm 55:4-8, for the wings of a dove to fly away to safety, was not right, as he realised later in the psalm:

As for me, I call to God,
and the LORD saves me. …
18 He rescues me unharmed
from the battle waged against me,
even though many oppose me.

Psalm 55:16,18 (NIV 2011)

Similarly God will protect his church in this and every spiritual battle, not by rapturing it or calling it to flee, but by making Jesus its “only protection and provision”.

  3. This sounds so wise – yet ignores some basic biblical principles.
    Yes, negative prophetic words are given by the Lord so we can pray against them and cut them off, yet to assume this is always the case is not supported by Scripture.
    There is a time given for repentance and turning. When the Lord declares that time is up, its too late to turn back the judgment. Bob and Rick shared these words over a decade ago (search for “Words for Coming Times” transcript on the Net), and copped a lot of criticism then – not repentance, prayer and fasting, mind you.
    It may well be that the time where this could be turned has passed.

    It is also very clear to many in ministry that few Christians have learned to hear God’s voice accurately, and they don’t have time to start learning now.

    The Lord gave me a Word some years ago concerning a local pastor’s son who was claiming to have cancer. Many were praying for healing, though the Church was experiencing very little success in this regard – even with minor illnesses.
    The Lord said: “If a ninja is running at you about to cut your head off, do you want me to hand you a sword, or fight on your behalf…’cause it’s a little late to start taking fencing lessons?” When cancer is the issue, find someone who is already seeing success in healing of cancers.
    I believe this is sound Biblically. If we haven’t already been faithful in the prayer closet and won a breakthrough, a life-and-death situation is not the time to be practising.

    Bob Jones and Rick Joyner are both proven Prophetic Voices with a proven track record. Rick stated recently that it was interesting that the serious discussions he’s had with Californians on this Word have come form the unsaved – many in the Church are dismissing it out of hand.

    The immaturity in the Church and the lack of ability to hear clearly are certainly no encouragement to those resident in the threatened area. Complacency should be ignored, and urgent prayer and fasting given for specific directions from the loving father on how best each should respond in this situation.


  4. Paul, thank you for your comment. I’m not sure what “basic biblical principles” you mean, and what is the biblical basis for them, when you claim that some prophecies of judgment are irrevocable and it is too late for repentance. I don’t see examples of this – although I do see examples like Sodom and Gomorrah which refused to repent. I accept that God’s end time plans for final judgment are irrevocable, but the details and the timing may not be.

    Anyway if there is no repentance the point is irrelevant as the judgment will come anyway. But if the church does stop criticising and start to repent of all its wrong ways, not just in California but worldwide, then who knows if God might yet have mercy on it?

  5. I don’t see that California has been truly repenting -neither professing Christians nor unbelievers. Because of this – it seems California will get a 9.0 earthquake/tsunami soon. Make sure you are ready to meet Jesus. One should be ready anyway everywhere as we don’t truly know when our last day on earth will be.

  6. I am sorry to spam. But time is so short. Read: I am coming by Susan Davis. It’s about Jesus returning very soon to rapture His true saints. Get ready!

  7. I have great respect for those prophets who put themselves out there. Scriptually there are many dinamics that come into play regarding judgment. Regarding California some of us in Africa have seen the California disaster- but then food shortages instigated by the Euro crisis is just as bad there is also the devastating prospects of an iranian israeli war. At the moment we intercessors are just kicking the can down the road. God is merciful and will look for repentance give mercy and avert judgment. I am suspicious of ministers who use non didactic scripture to formulate or justify doctrines eg the rapture. So quibling about such is futile- we must pray for The lives of Californians irrespect of earthquake magnitude. Size is not our problem it is souls- we have seen big disaters with minimum loss of life. God works miracles still.
