  • Jesus raises two people that had been dead three days in Africa


    NOTE: The following is a stunning vision given to American

    preacher Tommy Hicks (who was deeply involved in the powerful

    1954 Argentina Revival).

    VISION of the BODY OF CHRIST and the End-Time Ministries.

    -Tommy Hicks.


    My message begins July 25, about 2:30 in the morning at Winnipeg,

    Canada. I had hardly fallen asleep when the vision and the reve-

    lation that God gave me came before me. The vision came three

    times, exactly in detail, the morning of July 25, 1961. I was so

    stirred and so moved by the revelation that this has changed my

    complete outlook upon the body of Christ, and upon the end-time

    ministries.


    The greatest thing that the church of Jesus Christ has ever been

    given lies straight ahead. It is so hard to help men and women to

    realize and understand the thing that God is trying to give his

    people in the end times.


    I received a letter several weeks ago from one of our native

    evangelists down in Africa, down in Nairobi.
    This man and his

    wife were on their way to Tanganyika. They could neither read nor

    could they write,
    but we had been supporting them for over two

    years. As they entered into the territory of Tanganyika, they

    came across a small village. The entire village was evacuating

    because of a plague that had hit the village. He came across na-

    tives that were weeping, and he asked them what was wrong.


    They told him of their mother and father who had suddenly died,

    and they had been dead for three days. They had to leave. They

    were afraid to go in; they were leaving them in the cottage. He

    turned and asked them where they were. They pointed to the hut

    and he asked them to go with him, but they refused. They were

    afraid to go.


    The native and his wife went to this little cottage and entered

    in where the man and woman had been dead for three days. He sim-

    ply stretched forth his hand in the name of the Lord Jesus

    Christ, and spoke the man's name and the woman's name and said,

    "In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command life to come

    back to your bodies." Instantaneously these two heathen people

    who had never known Jesus Christ as their Savior sat up and imme-

    diately began to praise God. The spirit and the power of God came

    into the life of those people.



    To us that may seem strange and a phenomenon, but that is the be-

    ginning of these end-time ministries. God is going to take the

    do-nothings, the nobodies, the unheard-of, the no-accounts. He is

    going to take every man and every woman and he is going to give

    to them this outpouring of the Spirit of God.


    In the book of Acts we read that "In the last days," God said,

    "I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh." I wonder if we real-

    ized what he meant when God said, "I will pour out my Spirit upon

    all flesh." I do not think I fully realized nor could I under-

    stand the fullness of it, and then I read from the book of Joel:

    "Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord your

    God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he

    will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and

    the latter rain -" (Joel 2:23). It is not only going to be the

    rain, the former rain and the latter rain, but he is going to

    give to his people in these last days a double portion of the

    power of God!

    The vision this man seen:


    As the vision appeared to me after I was asleep, I suddenly

    found myself in a great high distance. Where I was, I do not

    know. But I was looking down upon the earth. Suddenly the whole

    earth came into my view. Every nation, every kindred, every

    tongue came before my sight from the east and the west, the north

    and the south. I recognized every country and many cities that I

    had been in, and I was almost in fear and trembing as I beheld

    the great sight before me: and at that moment when the world came

    into view, it began to lightning and thunder.


    As the lightning flashed over the face of the earth, my eyes

    went downward and I was facing the north. Suddenly I beheld what

    looked like a great giant, and as I stared and looked at it, I

    was almost bewildered by the sight. It was so gigantic and so

    great. His feet seemed to reach to the north pole and his head to

    the south. Its arms were stretched from sea to sea. I could not

    even begin to understand whether this be a mountain or this be a

    giant, but as I watched, I suddenly beheld a great giant. I could

    see his head was struggling for life. He wanted to live, but his

    body was covered with debris from head to foot, and at times this

    great giant would move his body and act as though it would even

    raise up at times. And when it did, thousands of little creatures

    seemed to run away. Hideous creatures would run away from this

    giant, and when he would become calm, they would come back.


    All of a sudden this great giant lifted his hand towards heaven,

    and then it lifted its other hand, and when it did these crea-

    tures by the thousands seemed to flee away from this giant and go

    into the darkness of the night.


    Slowly this great giant began to rise and as he did, his head and

    hands went into the clouds. As he rose to his feet he seemed to

    have cleansed himself from the debris and filth that was upon

    him, and he began to raise his hands into the heavens as though

    praising the Lord, and as he raised his hands, they went even un-

    to the clouds.


    Suddenly, every cloud became silver, the most beautiful silver I

    have ever known. As I watched this phenomenon it was so great I

    could not even begin to understand what it all meant. I was so

    stirred as I watched it, and I cried unto the Lord and I said,

    "Oh Lord, what is the meaning of this." and I felt as if I was

    actually in the Spirit and I could feel the presence of the Lord

    even as I was asleep.


    And from those clouds suddenly there came great drops of liquid

    light raining down upon this mighty giant, and slowly, slowly,

    this giant began to melt, began to sink itself in the very earth

    itself, and as he melted, his whole form seemed to have melted

    upon the face of the earth, and this great rain began to come

    down. Liquid drops of light began to flood the very earth itself

    and as I watched this giant that seemed to melt, suddenly it be-

    came millions of people over the face of the earth. As I beheld

    the sight before me, people stood up all over the world! They

    were lifting their hands and they were praising the Lord.


    At that very moment there came a great thunder that seemed to

    roar from the heavens. I turned my eyes toward the heavens and

    suddenly I saw a figure in white, in glistening white - the most

    glorious thing that I have ever seen in my entire life. I did not

    see the face, but somehow I knew it was the Lord Jesus Christ,

    and he stretched forth his hand, and as he did, he would stretch

    it forth to one, and to another, and to another. And as he

    stretched forth his hand upon the nations and the people of the

    world - men and women - as he pointed toward them, this liquid

    light seemed to flow from his hands into them, and a mighty an-

    ointing of God came upon them, and those people began to go forth

    in the name of the Lord.


    I do not know how long I watched it. It seemed it went into days

    and weeks and months. And I beheld this Christ as he continued to

    stretch forth his hand; but there was a tragedy. There were many

    people as he stretched forth his hand that refused the anointing

    of God and the call of God. I saw men and women that I knew. Peo-

    ple that I felt would certainly receive the call of God. But as

    he stretched forth his hand toward this one and toward that one,

    they simply bowed their head and began to back away. And each of

    those that seemed to bow down and back away, seemed to go into

    darkness. Blackness seemed to swallow them everywhere.


    I was bewildered as I watched it, but these people that he had

    anointed, hundreds of thousands of people all over the world, in

    Africa, England, Russia, China, America, all over the world, the

    anointing of God was upon these people as they went forward in

    the name of the Lord. I saw these men and women as they went

    forth. They were ditch diggers, they were washerwomen, they were

    rich men, they were poor men.
    I saw people who were bound with

    paralysis and sickness and blindness and deafness. As the Lord

    stretched forth to give them this anointing, they became well,

    they became healed, and they went forth!


    And this is the miracle of it - this is the glorious miracle of

    it - those people would stretch forth their hands exactly as the

    Lord did, and it seemed as if there was this same liquid fire in

    their hands. As they stretched forth their hands they said, "Ac-

    cording to my word, be thou made whole."


    As these people continued in this mighty end-time ministry, I

    did not fully realize what it was, and I looked to the Lord and

    said, "What is the meaning of this?" And he said, "This is that

    which I will do in the last days. I will restore all that the

    cankerworm, the palmerworm, the caterpiller - I will restore all

    that they have destroyed. This, my people, in the end times will

    go forth. As a mighty army shall they sweep over the face of the

    earth."


    As I was at this great height, I could behold the whole world. I

    watched these people as they were going to and fro over the face

    of the earth. Suddenly there was a man in Africa and in a moment

    he was transported by the Spirit of God, and perhaps he was in

    Russia, or China or America or some other place, and vice versa.

    All over the world these people went, and they came through fire,

    and through pestilence, and through famine. Neither fire nor per-

    secution, nothing seemed to stop them.


    Angry mobs came to them with swords and with guns. And like Je-

    sus, they passed through the multitudes and they could not find

    them, but they went forth in the name of the Lord, and everywhere

    they stretched forth their hands, the sick were healed, the blind

    eyes were opened. There was not a long prayer, and after I had

    reviewed the vision many times in my mind, and I thought about it

    many times, I realized that I never saw a church, and I never saw

    or heard a denomination, but these people were going in the name

    of the Lord of Hosts.
    Hallelujah!


    As they marched forth in everything they did as the ministry of

    Christ in the end times, these people were ministering to the

    multitudes over the face of the earth. Tens of thousands, even

    millions seemed to come to the Lord Jesus Christ as these people

    stood forth and gave the message of the kingdom, of the coming

    kingdom, in this last hour. It was so glorious, but it seems as

    though there were those that rebelled, and they would become an-

    gry and they tried to attack those workers that were giving

    the message.


    God is going to give the world a demonstration in this last hour

    as the world has never known. These men and women are of all

    walks of life, degrees will mean nothing. I saw these workers as

    they were going over the face of the earth. When one would stum-

    ble and fall, another would come and pick him up. There were no

    "big I" and "little you," but every mountain was brought low and

    every valley was exalted,
    and they seemed to have one thing in

    common - there was a divine love, a divine love that seemed to

    flow forth from these people as they worked together, and as they

    lived together. It was the most glorious sight that I have ever

    known. Jesus Christ was the theme of their life. They continued

    and it seemed the days went by as I stood and beheld this sight.

    I could only cry, and sometimes I laughed. It was so wonderful

    as these people went throughout the face of the whole earth,

    bringing forth in this last end time.


    As I watched from the very heaven itself, there were times when

    great deluges of this liquid light seemed to fall upon great con-

    gregations, and that congregation would lift up their hands and

    seemingly praise God for hours and even days as the Spirit of God

    came upon them. God said, "I will pour my Spirit upon all flesh,"

    and that is exactly this thing. And to every man and every woman

    that received this power, and the anointing of God, the miracles

    of God, there was no ending to it.


    We have talked about miracles. We have talked about signs and

    wonders, but I could not help but weep as I read again this morn-

    ing, at 4 o'clock this morning the letter from our native work-

    ers. This is only the evidence of the beginning for one man, a

    "do-nothing, an unheard-of," who would go and stretch forth his

    hand and say, "In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command

    life to flow into your body." I dropped to my knees and began to

    pray again, and I said, "Lord, I know that this time is coming

    soon!"


    And then again, as these people were going about the face of the

    earth, a great persecution seemed to come from every angle.


    Suddenly there was another great clap of thunder, that seemed to

    resound around the world, and I heard again the voice, the voice

    that seemed to speak, "Now this is my people. This is my beloved

    bride." And when the voice spoke, I looked upon the earth and I

    could see the lakes and the mountains. The graves were opened and

    people from all over the world, the saints of all ages, seemed to

    be rising. And as they rose from the grave, suddenly all these

    people came from every direction. From the east and the west,

    from the north and the south, and they seemed to be forming again

    this gigantic body. As the dead in Christ seemed to be rising

    first, I could hardly comprehend it. It was so marvellous. It was

    so far beyond anything I could ever dream or think of.


    But as this body suddenly began to form, and take shape again,

    it took shape again in the form of this mighty giant, but this

    time it was different. It was arrayed in the most beautiful gor-

    geous white. Its garments were without spot or wrinkle as its

    body began to form, and the people of all ages seemed to be gath-

    ered into this body, and slowly, slowly, as it began to form up

    into the very heavens, suddenly from the heavens above, the Lord

    Jesus came, and became the head, and I heard another clap of

    thunder that said, "This is my beloved bride for whom I have

    waited. She will come forth even tried by fire. This is she that

    I have loved from the beginning of time."


    As I watched, my eyes suddenly turned to the far north, and I

    saw seemingly destruction: men and women in anguish and crying

    out, and buildings in destruction. Then I heard again, the fourth

    voice that said, "Now is My wrath being poured out upon the face

    of the earth." From the ends of the whole world, the wrath of God

    seemed to be poured out and it seemed that there were great vials

    of God's wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth. I can

    remember it as though it happened a moment ago. I shook and

    trembled as I beheld the awful sight of seeing the cities, and

    whole nations going down into destruction.


    I could hear the weeping and wailing. I could hear people cry-

    ing. They seemed to cry as they went into caves, but the caves in

    the mountains opened up.


    They leaped into water, but the water would not drown them.

    There was nothing that could destroy them. They were wanting to

    take their lives, but they could not.

    Then again I turned my eyes to this glorious sight, this body

    arrayed in beautiful white, shining garments. Slowly, slowly, it

    began to lift from the earth, and as it did, I awoke. What a

    sight I had beheld! I had seen the end-time ministries - the last

    hour. Again on July 27, at 2:30 in the morning, the same revela-

    tion, the same vision came again exactly as it did before.


    My life has been changed as I realised that we are living in

    that end time, for all over the world God is anointing men and

    women with this ministry. It will not be doctrine. It will not be

    a churchianity. It is going to be Jesus Christ. They will give

    forth the word of the Lord, and are going to say, "I heard it so

    many times in the vision and according to my word it shall be

    done."
