The Symbol of God's power to sustain H.I.M. President
In this recording, Sister Elizabeth discusses with Brother Mel how the idea came to her to found Helping Inspire Ministers (H.I.M.). As she describes it, she "heard a sound from Heaven," inspiring her to found a ministry credentialing and fellowship association. Her organization has grown over the years, and has experienced increased growth in recent years. She shares ministry lessons she learned from Brother Hagin which guide her now in knowing which applicants to ordain, license, or to receive as members.
Sister Elizabeth also discusses in passing, people who have a "religious spirit," and how such people can grieve the Holy Spirit in a service. Mel relates an account of witnessing Sister Elizabeth stop one of her Holy Spirit services when people started to pull it off in the wrong direction. Mel also discusses the unique qualities he has noticed about Sister Elizabeth's Holy Spirit meetings, and the help he has found in being a member of H.I.M.

Rev. Kenneth Hagin Rev. Elizabeth Pruitt-Sloan
Sister Elizabeth discusses moves of God of the 1950s and 1960s in which she participated. She and Mel note the similarities between Aimee Semple McPherson's Bible School and Rhema. They also bring out consistent characteristics that they see between Stanley Frodsham, David Du Plessis, Howard Carter, Kenneth Hagin and the Goodwins. Mel makes the point that one of the characteristics of genuine spiritual ministry is the desire to allow more seasoned ministers to speak into your life. They also touch on the vital role of the pastor in keeping individual ministers, and the local church as a whole, on track. Mel gives an example of situations a prophet might not discern, but that a pastor would see through in a minute. In the course of the discussion, the Holy Spirit also inspires a message in tongues and interpretation.
