Pastor Ray shared…

There was something I read recently that I wanted to share. It’s time for the body of Christ to stand up and be what the body is called to be. Also, there are some things from Tommy Hick’s vision I wanted to talk about. I believe it was the early ‘60s when he had the vision, twice, about the end times.

Yesterday, Annie shared how she had watched a video in July about meetings that took place in Germany. It was a stadium filled with 25 to 26 thousand people—all born again, Spirit-filled Germans lifting up their voices and worshiping the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. It was a four-day event that had different speakers: morning, afternoon, and evening. The Holy Spirit was moving in the meetings. The theme was “Europe Will Be Saved.” Remember Reinhard Bonnke? Many of the speakers were raised up under him so they had the same passion for souls. In this stadium, 75 years before is where Hitler began his deception, coming against the people of Israel.

They were lifting up their voices together in one accord. The German people were taking back the land right there that 75 years ago Hitler spoke words. One of the speakers said, “He didn’t have the spirit. He wasn’t walking in love. He was controlled by the enemy, but he had words that he spoke that were the opposite of the anointing. Devil words.” So they were taking back the things that were declared then and all the things that happened and they were declaring the Word of God to be true. The music people forgot their agenda, their lists and they just worshiped the Lord. It was Holy Spirit directed worship. That is happening right now!

I want to talk about Argentina where huge revival broke loose in the early 1950s. I want to describe one event that took place that was the beginning of the revival there, but really it wasn’t the beginning. When the Holy Spirit moves, there’s always a lot of prayer before the Holy Spirit moves like that. There was a man in Argentina that had come out of Bible college and he was ramped up. He convinced another man to go with him to a city in Argentina that had never heard the Gospel. Nothing had ever been preached about the Lord there. They put their money together and raised enough money to put up a tent and have a tent meeting. They got their tent up and put out fliers. Nobody showed up. Not one person. Not even a child. No one even showed up to say, “What is going on?” Day after day went by and nobody showed up. So the rain came and flooded them out.

This minister was pastor of a really small church. He was so depressed and he felt maybe he just missed it. “I’m probably not even called. So I think I’ll just go back to my own country and get a job there.” But the Holy Spirit had a different plan. He began to speak to him about prayer. He told this man, “I want you to forget about anything else. Don’t go back to your other country. I want you to pray eight hours a day.” He was Spirit filled. He thought it would be a week of praying every day. “I’ll pray for a week and we’re going to have revival.” Well, week after week after week went by. He prayed a long time and people thought he was absolutely crazy. I’m sure his friends tried to convince him to get a job. But he was directed by the Holy Spirit. He kept getting the words “not by power, not by might but by My Spirit, saith the Lord.” (Zec. 4:6) So he just kept on going.

Then the Lord said, “I want you to invite the people from your church,” which was only like eight people. He said, “I want you to invite them. Change what you’re doing and have prayer every evening, five days a week for four hours until midnight.” He announced it to the church. He was married so he had his wife join him. That’s two. The Lord said, “If they can’t commit to it, don’t have them come. They have to commit to it.” So three people showed up. One couple came. They were kind of backslidden. Then there was a single lady. The man that led the prayer said it was the most dead four hours that he’d ever had. He thought there was no way these people were going to come back the next night. Sure enough, the next night they showed up.

Then either it was the third or fourth night, the single lady said the Holy Spirit was ministering to her, telling her to go up to the front and pound on the table. But she wouldn’t do it because she thought, “What would that do? That can’t be the Holy Spirit.” So the next night, they came again. The pastor asked, “Are you still getting the same thing?” She said, “Yes. I’m getting the same thing. The Holy Spirit is telling me to go up and pound on that table. But I can’t do it. I just can’t see why I should do that.” So the next night came and they all came back. “Do you still feel like that?” “Oh yes, but I can’t do it.” So he decided that they would all go up with her and march around the table and we’re going to pound on it. Do you think it worked? No.

Let’s say Miss Erika had an anointing to do a particular thing. I can’t do it for her. And I can’t tell her to do what I’m called to do. It doesn’t work like that.

So they marched around the table and the lady that was supposed to pound on the table stood there and the rest of them are pounding the table, which I’m sure looked pretty stupid. It would look stupid if we put a table up here and we had a table-pounding service. It’s funny but one person out of that group had a call to pound on the table, which was direction from the Holy Spirit. So finally she just slammed the table and guess what? The wind of the Spirit blew in and blew them down under the table. That was the beginning of the Argentine revival. How did it start? It started by one person obeying what the Holy Spirit told her to do even though it looked stupid. But she pounded on the table which is what He told her to do. They all pounded on the table but they weren’t called to pound on the table. When she did what she was called to do, the Spirit began to move in Argentina. I wanted to share that before I read Tommy Hicks vision.

From that, revival came to Argentina. The American minister they had called to come and do meetings in the stadium could not come. So they sent Tommy Hicks in his place, an unknown. He didn’t even know who the President of Argentina was. He just had in his spirit the name “Peron.” He asked the stewardess on the plane, “I feel like the Holy Spirit wants me to see Peron. Who is he, do you know?” She said, “Are you kidding? That’s the President.” He got there and the people that have not been in the revival are calling the shots. They said, “We have a stadium that will seat 2500.” He’s like, “Nope. We need a huge stadium and I need to speak to the President.” They’re like, “You got to be kidding. Nobody gets to speak to the President.” The next day he took an interpreter and went to the Pink House, where the president was. There was a man out front with a machine gun. He came up to him and said, “I want to have huge meetings here in Argentina where I will pray for the sick.” He gave him the Gospel and said “You could be healed.” The guard is like, “Wait a second. Are you telling me that I could be healed now? That Jesus would do that for me now?” He said, “Absolutely.” The man said, “I have a disease in my liver and it is so painful. Can Jesus heal me right now?” He said, “Absolutely. Give me your hands.” The power went into the man and he was instantly healed. He was shocked. No pain. It was all gone. He said, “Come back tomorrow. I’ll get you in to see the President.”

I like that. Healing is the dinner bell.

He came back the next day and he was taken in to see the President. He spoke to him about all the things he wanted to do. He wanted a stadium to seat at least 25,000 people. He wanted advertising. He went on and on with his list. He also gave the President the Gospel. The President had psoriasis so bad that no one was allowed to take a photo of him anymore. He looked so bad. It was the same scenario. “Can Jesus heal me now?” “Give me your hands.” He prayed for him and his skin cleared up instantaneously. They said it was like a baby’s skin. He said, “You can have anything you want.” Just like that! He had favor. Why? Because the President saw the power of the Lord. He was healed. Tommy went on to do these huge revival meetings, and the reason they grew and grew was because the healing power of God was being manifested in the people. The stadium was packed with people trying to get healed. It went on for weeks and months. This was in the 50s. So it came through an unknown man; however, he knew his Creator. He knew the anointing within him.

I want to read to you the vision that Tommy Hicks had about eight or nine years later. He had the vision twice. It is for the last days, the days we’re in today. I wanted to read it cuz I want to lift it before the Lord in prayer. Father, by Your Spirit, You gave this. The time is now. Now is the time. We prayed this week for the Church to rise up and be the Church. We could be so much more effective in America if we’d get together, right?

Tommy Hick’s Vision

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 trembling 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 creatures 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 unto 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 became 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 anointing of God came upon them, and those people began to go forth in the name of the Lord.

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, “According 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 caterpillar—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 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 angry 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 stumble 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 congregations, 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.

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 gorgeous white. Its garments were without spot or wrinkle as its body began to form, and the people of all ages seemed to be gathered 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.”

Pastor Ray continued sharing…

There were other things that happened. He saw some people that rebelled, judgment. I want to focus in on the body. We’re going to lift this up to the Lord, reminding Him of what was spoken. We know that this lines up with the Word. We know the Word is true. We know that God will do what He said He would do. We know He is faithful. He’s never changed and we know it’s not by our power or our might but it is by the Spirit.


Holy Spirit, we lift these words before heaven today. We lift them before You, Father. We lift Your promises, and we remind You of what You said. We know these are the last of the last days and times on this earth. We see how you portrayed the body of Christ in white. We see the body begin to rise and rise from one degree of glory to another.

For the body of Christ to shine bright
For the body to do what the body has been called to do
For the army, for the marching, for the sound of the feet, for the sound of the voices
The sound of the prayers being declared everywhere
No end to it
A bending of the body, bended knees, prostrated before heaven today
We give up and we give in… we yield again and again
Demonstrations, greater demonstrations of Your power, Your signs and wonders
We pray over the millions and millions about to come in
We prepare and expect and believe by Your Spirit
Signs, supernatural wonders and events
No, no, no—indecision, get out of the way
That’s a hindrance
Fear, you have to leave for the body is rising up
The body is going to do what the body has been given to do
We plead the blood and cover the body with the precious blood of the Lamb
Indecision will turn into decisions
A showing, a revealing, an uncovering
When You come on the scene, Holy Spirit, You lift up the standard
Whatever the enemy had planned, the Holy Spirit raises up the standard
Steps ordered from heaven to be fulfilled on this earth in these days—ordained, restored, equipped, revived

Group began to sing in the spirit…
