Saints, last week I shared with you prophetic words about the great end time harvest of the Lord. But I forgot to include the well-known prophecy by Tommy Hicks of “The Sleeping Giant.” Here it is.
THE SLEEPING GIANT
The following vision was given to Tommy Hicks on July 25, 1961.
When I experienced this vision, I found myself at a great height looking down upon the earth. Suddenly the whole world came into view—every nation, every kindred, every tongue came before my sight. From the east and the west, from the north and the south, I recognized the countries and cities that I had been in. As I stood beholding the great sight before me, I was almost in fear and trembling. The moment the world came into view, it began to lightning and thunder.
A Great Giant Covered in Debris
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. As I stared at it, I was almost bewildered by the sight. It was gigantic. His feet seemed to reach to the north pole and his head to the south pole. His arms were stretched from sea to sea. I could not even begin to understand whether this was a mountain or a giant. As I watched, I beheld that it was a great giant. I could see he was struggling for life, to even live. From head to toe, his body was covered with debris. At times, this great giant would begin to move his body as though he would rise up. When he did, thousands of hideous looking creatures would run away. When he would become calm again, they would come back.
The Giant Was Cleansed and Then Rose to His Feet
All of a sudden, this great giant lifted one hand toward the heavens and then he lifted his other hand. When he did, these creatures by the thousands seemed to flee away and go out into the night. Slowly this great giant began to rise. 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. He raised his hands into the heavens as though praising the Lord. His hands went even unto the clouds.
Silver Clouds Rained Liquid Light
Suddenly, every cloud became silver; the most beautiful silver that I have ever seen. As I watched, the phenomenon was so great, I could not even begin to understand what it all meant. I was stirred as I watched it. I cried unto the Lord and said, “Oh, Lord, what is the meaning of this?” And it felt as if I was actually in the spirit, and I could feel the presence of the Lord, even as I was asleep.
The Giant Melted and Became Millions of People
From those clouds, there suddenly came great drops of liquid light raining down upon this mighty giant. Slowly, this giant began to melt and sink, as it were, into the very earth itself. His whole form seemed to melt upon the face of the earth. Liquid drops of light began to rain down and flood the very earth itself. As I watched this giant melt, it suddenly became millions of people all over the face of the earth. People stood up all over the world and lifted their hands and praised the Lord.
Liquid Light Flowed Forth From Jesus’ Hands, Anointing His People
At that very moment there came a great thunder that seemed to roar from the heavens. I then turned my eyes toward the heavens, and I saw a figure in white, glistening. Somehow, I knew that it was the Lord Jesus Christ. He stretched forth His hand… He stretched it forth to one, and to another, and to another. He stretched forth His hand upon the peoples and the nations of the world, men and women. As He pointed toward them, this liquid light flowed from His hand into these people and a mighty anointing of God came upon them. The people then went forth in the name of the Lord.
A Tragedy Happened
I do not know how long I watched. It seemed it went into days and weeks and months. I beheld Christ as He continued to stretch forth His hand. But there was a tragedy. As He stretched forth His hands, there were many people that refused the anointing and call of God. I saw men and women that I knew, people that I felt certain they would have received the call of God. As He stretched forth His hand toward this one and toward that one, they simply bowed their heads and backed away. Those that bowed their heads and backed away, seemed to go into darkness. Blackness seemed to swallow them everywhere.
The Body of Christ Went Forth and Ministered in the Name of the Lord
As I watched, I saw the people that He had anointed cover the earth. There were hundreds of thousands of these people all over the world—in Africa, Asia, Russia, China, America. The anointing of God was upon these people as they went forth in the name of the Lord. I watched these men and women as they went forth. They were ditch diggers, washer women, rich men, and poor men. I saw people who were bound with paralysis and sickness and blindness and deafness. When the Lord stretched forth His hand to give them this anointing, they became well and healed and they too went forth in the name of the Lord. This is the glorious miracle of it. Those people would stretch forth their hands exactly as the Lord did, and as they did, the same liquid fire went forth from their hands. As they stretched forth their hands, they said, “According to my word, be thou made whole.”
Jesus Will Restore All That Had Been Destroyed
As these people continued in this mighty end-time ministry, I did not fully realize what it was. I looked to the Lord and asked, “What is the meaning of this?” He said, “This is that, that I will do in the last days. I will restore all that the cankerworm, the palmerworm, and the caterpillar have destroyed. This, My people in the end time, shall go forth. And as a mighty army, they shall sweep over the face of the earth.”
Saints Will Be Translated All Over the World
As I was at this great height, I could behold the whole world. I watched these people as they were going to and from over the face of the earth. Suddenly, I saw 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. These people went all over the world. They came through fire, through pestilence, through famine, and through persecution—yet, nothing seemed to stop them.
The Saints Will Pass Through Angry Mobs
Angry mobs came to them with swords and with guns, and like Jesus, they passed through the multitude and the angry mobs could not find them. They continued to go forth in the name of the Lord. Everywhere they stretched forth their hands, sick people were healed and blind eyes were opened. There was not a long prayer. I never saw a church, and I never saw or heard a denomination. These people were going in the name of the Lord of Hosts.
As they marched forward as the end time ministers of Christ, they ministered 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 went forth and gave the message of the coming kingdom in this last hour. It was glorious! There were some that rebelled. They became angry and tried to attack the workers that were giving the message.
God is going to give to the world a demonstration in this last hour such as the world has never known. These men and women will be from 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 seem to stumble and fall, another would come and pick him up. There were no big “I” or little “you.” Every mountain was brought low and every valley was exalted.
A Divine Love Flowed From the Believers
They seemed to have one thing in common; as they went forth, there was a divine love that flowed forth from them as they worked together and lived together. It was the theme of their lives. As I stood and beheld this sight, it seemed days went by. It was so wonderful! As these people went throughout the face of the whole earth showing forth God’s power in this end-time, I could only cry; sometimes I laughed.
Deluges of Liquid Light
As I watched from heaven, there were times when great deluges of this liquid light would fall upon great congregations. As the Spirit of God came upon them, the congregations would lift their hands and praise God for hours and even days. God said, “I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh.” That was exactly the thing God was doing. Every man and woman that received this power and the anointing of God, the miracles of God flowed continuously.
The Resurrection of the Dead
Suddenly there was another great clap of thunder that seemed to resound throughout the world. Again, I heard a voice saying, “Now, this is My people; this is My beloved bride.” 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. As they arose from their graves—from every direction, from the east and the west, from the north and the south—they began to take the form of a gigantic body. As the dead in Christ were rising, I could hardly comprehend it. It was so marvelous! It was so far beyond anything I could ever dream or think.
The Body of Christ Without Spot or Wrinkle
The dead in Christ began to come together, taking the shape of the mighty giant. But this time it was different. It was arrayed in the most beautiful, gorgeous white garment that was without spot or wrinkle. As the people of all ages gathered into this body, slowly, from the heavens above, the Lord Jesus came and became the head. I heard another clap of thunder, and a voice 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.”
The Wrath of God Is Poured Out
As I watched, my eyes then turned to the far north. I saw great destruction, buildings were destroyed, and men and women crying out in anguish. Then I heard a voice say, “Now is My wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth.” From the ends of the whole world, there were great vials of God’s wrath being poured out upon the face of the earth. I beheld the awful sight of seeing cities and whole nations going down into destruction. I could hear weeping and wailing. I heard people crying. They cried as they went into caves, but the caves and the mountains opened up. They leapt into water, but the water would not drown them. There was nothing that seemingly could destroy them. They wanted to take their lives, but they could not succeed.
I again turned my eyes toward the glorious sight of this body arrayed in the beautiful white shining garment. Slowly, it began to lift from the earth, and as it did, I awoke. This vision that I beheld, I knew it was the end-of-time ministry, the last hour.
Then on July 27 at 2:30 a.m., I again experienced the same vision exactly as before.
Since then, my life has never been the same. I realize we are living in that end time. All over the world, God is anointing men and women with this ministry. It will not be doctrine. It will not be “churchianity.” It is going to be Jesus Christ. They will give forth the word of the Lord and they will say (I heard it many times in the vision), “According to my word, it shall be done.”
Oh people, listen to me! “According to my word, it shall be done.” We are going to be clothed with power and anointing from God. We won’t have to preach sermons. We won’t have to depend on man, nor will we be denominational echoes. But we will have the power of the living God! We will fear no man. We will go in the name of the Lord of Hosts!
Soon thereafter, Tommy Hicks died in Los Angeles, California.
