Hattie Hammond: Calling Christians to a Deeper Walk with God
By Glenn Gohr
Originally published on PE-News, 18 August 2016
Hattie Hammond (1907-1994) was one of the premier preachers of the early Pentecostal-holiness movement. How did she gain that reputation? It was by preaching a simple gospel message of wholeheartedly serving God.
Born and raised in Williamsport, Maryland, she was saved and baptized in the Holy Spirit in a tent meeting at age 15, conducted by John Ashcroft, the grandfather of former Attorney General John Ashcroft. Even at that young age, she boldly began witnessing to her teachers and classmates, which was the beginning of her lifelong calling as an evangelist.
She was ordained by the Assemblies of God in 1927, and soon had invitations to speak in large churches in Cleveland, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; Los Angeles and Oakland, California; Philadelphia; New York City; Washington, DC; and other places.
She also became a popular camp meeting speaker and Bible teacher. Her simple messages prompted abandonment of worldliness and inspired walking into a “deeper life” of consecration and holiness to God.
In a sermon called “Drawing Nigh to God,” published in the August 18, 1928, issue of the Pentecostal Evangel, she encourages people to develop a strong, devotional life: “As we enter into the presence of the Lord we should realize we are in the presence of a great, almighty, eternal God.” She also promotes waiting on the Lord: “We should not rush into His presence with haste, nor come as though we were coming into the presence of an earthly friend. We should take time to realize that He is God and beside Him there is none else.”
In this sermon she also talks about the need for God, salvation, spending time with God in prayer, and the importance of the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
She says, “The first thing necessary is that we become still, and know that the great I AM is God. Be still and know that it is God for whom we are waiting, that we are sitting in the presence of God, and that it is His great name upon which we are calling.” She concludes by saying, “We need the Holy Spirit to keep us true to the Cross, and to Jesus our Lover Lord, to be real overcomers.”
By the 1930s, Hattie Hammond had become one of the most powerful speakers in the Pentecostal movement. There are reports of remarkable miracles and healings which took place in her ministry.
She ministered all over the U.S. in colleges, conventions, Bible schools, churches of all denominations, and in more than 30 countries of the world.

Perhaps no archaeologist has uncovered more proof of the Bible than Dr. Eilat Mazar. Her discoveries include King David’s palace, King Solomon’s wall, Nehemiah’s wall, a gold medallion with a candlestick imprint, two clay seal impressions of the Prophet Jeremiah’s captors, a clay seal of King Hezekiah, a clay seal most likely bearing the name of the Prophet Isaiah, and coins from the Jewish revolt against the Romans in the first century A.D. What sets Dr. Mazar apart from nearly every other archaeologist in the world is her reliance on the Bible as an accurate historical record. Her numerous discoveries are a result of simply believing what the Bible says.
Request our free reprint article “Has Eilat Mazar Discovered Archaeological Evidence of Isaiah the Prophet?” In her work, Dr. Mazar refuses to jump to conclusions. She prefers to let the stones speak for themselves. The clay seal bearing the name of Isaiah is just one example. Her excavation team found only the bottom part of this broken artifact, which means that some symbols or letters are missing. While Dr. Mazar doesn’t dogmatically label this find as the property of the Prophet Isaiah, she does suggest it by presenting a mountain of evidence. Read our free reprint article about this discovery, and decide for yourself if this ancient artifact really could bear the name of Isaiah the Prophet.
An archaeological exhibit called Seals of Isaiah and King Hezekiah Discovered opened on June 10 at Armstrong Auditorium in Edmond, Oklahoma. For those unable to visit this exhibit before the anticipated closing date of August 19, a virtual exhibit tour is available online. Call now to request your free DVD copy of this virtual tour.
You will also receive a free copy of the Seals of Isaiah and King Hezekiah Discovered exhibit brochure. Learn the history of the Assyrian and Judean kingdoms during the seventh and eighth centuries B.C. Discover how God intervened to save the Jews from conquest because of their righteous king and prophet.
All our materials are available free of charge, at no cost or obligation to you. Request the reprint article, DVD and brochure today. Order now!
