Mulling over Saturday’s post regarding Plymouth and how ideas popped into mind, then later upon catching up with GodTV celebrations, I believe my spirit may be sensing a modern prophecy is coming into fulfilment. It’s serendipity yet again. (For a brief introduction to this Biblical principle see In the right place at the right time.)
In Winnipeg, Canada, 53 three years ago this Friday, Tommy Hicks had hardy fallen asleep when,
…the vision and the revelation that God gave to me came before me. The vision came three times, exactly in detail…
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 last end-time ministry.
The greatest thing that the Church of Jesus Christ – that has ever been given to the Church – lies straight ahead. It is so hard to help men and women to realize and understand the thing that God is trying to give to His people in the end-time. (Emphases added)
If you’ve not yet followed the link I provided, visit Colin Winfield’s web-page and then his link to the pdf version of Tommy Hicks’ Vision. It is a most remarkable insight into the preparation of the unblemished Bride of Christ for the ‘great tribulation’. Colin comments upon testing its conformity with Scripture, and I cannot but ask if this scenario includes a cleansed, revived Anglican church, possibly as prophesied here?
I am truly humbled by this account being thrust to my attention separately by two sisters in Christ who have the same name, albeit spelt differently. The first L was mentioned in my musing upon the spiritual significance of Plymouth; ie, her vision of a giant bore a resemblance to what Tommy had seen. Time constraints, however, didn’t allow me to revisit his vision before writing.
But what I didn’t know was one of my readers had already been directed to that vision! Upon reading the blog on Plymouth this second L immediately responded she’d been praying on Thursday with her pastor,
…and I had brought my A1 board of Smith Wigglesworth’s (of) 1947, but as I am praying this out from where I believe we are, it ran into Tommy Hicks’ vision of the giant and the ordinary ditchdiggers and washerwomen – this has greatly encouraged me. [See below for SW’s vision]
A huge thank you goes to both ladies, my sisters in God’s family.
Therefore, I cannot but conclude that the Lord is definitely drawing our attention to the deep importance of that vision. In view of other words about this ‘new season’ and the urgency to Advance the Kingdom now! then the time really is ‘now’!
A song of victory is in the air
At the Summer celebration Nathan preached strongly about maintaining our spiritual boundaries and ‘landmarks’ because the church has given ground to the demonic. The next day his message was on the need to ‘contend not pretend’ for the faith.
On this, today’s Lion Bites from Glasgow Prophetic Centre is highly apposite:
Song of Victory
There is a new song arising in the people of God, it is the war cry of conquered ground.
There have been many battles of the season over the same piece of ‘ground’. Many have wondered why the battle has been so long and why it has kept them from the greener pastures their eyes have seen.
Many have wondered and asked, ‘Why am I still here fighting the same battle?’
This has formed a useful training ground for the people of God and they have grown in faith, in endurance and in maturity. But it is now time for conquering and completion – and so the new song of conquered ground will arise.
The Lord is establishing secure boundaries for the ground that has been fought over. The Lord is placing His seal over areas of contention because His saints are transitioning now over the battle ground that has been won.
Will you sing your song of victory in faith today, in faith that the Lord is moving on your behalf and that the battle has been won?
May God arise, may his enemies be scattered; may His foes flee before him.
SO, let us note and weigh these things, and take action…
Smith Wigglesworth’s Prophecy of major move of the Holy Spirit in Britain (1947).
- Two preliminary phases have already happened, so be prepared for the full move! Likewise for the word delivered 40 years later to David Minor in NW USA – Two winds coming to the Church.
- Further insights on this revelation was given to American evangelist, Lester Sumrall, “…I see the greatest revival in the history of mankind coming to planet Earth…every form of disease healed…”. (Revival Prophecies for the British Isles)
- In 1995 I was standing alongside SW’s prayer-partner Revd Norman James when he had a similar vision of UK that Wigglesworth had – he was left speechless!
