Dinner Bell of the Gospel
Dinner Bell of the Gospel
Aimee Semple McPherson “Healing is the dinner bell of the gospel.”
Amos 3:7 “Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secrets to His servants the prophets.”
At the beginning of each new calendar year, many Christians seek God’s will for their life and ministry. Although I know that December is a very busy month for all of us, I urge you to prepare to hear from God by recalling what He had spoken to some outstanding prophetic voices in the 20th century. I am referring specifically about: Timmy Hicks, Kenneth E Hagin and Arthur Burt. (I have given only a small bit of information about each leader. However, you may read Tommy Hicks and Kenneth E Hagin’s full prophecies on line, and I have provided the link.)
1. Timmy Hicks was used mightily by God in the 1954 Argentina Revival. God healed the President of Argentina through Tommy’s laying on of hands. The President then opened up the nation’s soccer fields where Tommy preached and healed, and led many to the Lord. This vision we are quoting here came to Tommy three times in the summer of 1961, in exactly the same detail. (I was personally fascinated by this prophecy since it mirrored-on a grander scale-a prophecy God had given Pastor Rick Shelton. Pastor Rick is the founder of my home church, Life Church in St. Louis.)
“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, Asia, Russia, China, America - all over the world - the anointing of God was upon these people as they went forth 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 His hand to give them the 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 hand exactly as the Lord did, and it seemed that there was this same liquid fire that seemed to be in their hand; as they stretched forth their hand 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-time, shall go forth; as a mighty army they will sweep over the face of the earth.’ “
The words I put in bold type above are especially dear to me. My own husband has been paralyzed for twenty years, after a severe stroke. The Lord promised him many times that he would be healed and himself have a healing ministry.
Next, let us consider the “Longmont Prophecy” given to Kenneth E Hagin. Brother Hagin had much “face time” with the Lord. He visited heaven several times. Jesus also came and talked with him occasionally. At one point Jesus sat down with him for an hour, explaining “principalities, powers, mights and dominions” in great detail. I recommend his autobiography, “I Believe In Visions.” The Longmont prophecy begins with assurance that we will leave planet earth before the Tribulation begins.

Next we have the specific information I want you to see today:
"Because, you see, The enemy shall not gainsay the work of the Lord."
And like a trumpet sounding across the valley,
I heard His voice,
So strong and clear,
And He said,
"I AM NOT COMING FOR A CHURCH,
THE BODY OF CHRIST,
THAT'S WEAK, EMACIATED,
SICKLY, AND UNDERGROUND.
I'M COMING FOR THE SPIRITUAL GIANT
THAT'S ALIVE, AND LIVING,
AND WORKING THE WORKS OF GOD!
"So be not fearful, nor cast thy glance around about, and become askant.*
But look ye up unto Him, for He is the Head of the Church.
And through the Church the Head will manifest Himself.
And men are the hands of the Lord.
And the hands are in the Body.
And He shall stretch forth His hands to heal the sick.
That signs and wonders shall be wrought in the name of the Holy Child Jesus."
I close with the Arthur Burt prophecy, given way back in 1934. Now is the time of its fulfillment. It is time for the great awakening at the end of the age in the Church, where people repent and turn back to God. The difference between a “revival” and an “awakening” is this. A revival affects the Body of Christ, but an awakening affects the entire society.
NO EBB PROPHECY
“It shall come as a breath…
And the breath shall bring the wind…
And the wind shall bring the rain.
And there shall be floods and floods and floods…
And torrents and torrents and torrents.
Souls shall be saved like falling leaves from mighty oaks swept by a hurricane.
Arms and legs shall come down from heaven…
…And there shall be no ebb.”
Arthur Burt, 1934
This is my final letter, dear readers, as the Lord is allowing me to change direction and do other work. Merry Christmas to you all, many of whom I know and have spoken to personally on the phone. You are dear to my heart, and we will all be together soon! May multiple blessings and finances accrue to your account, as we bring in the great harvest at the end of the age!
