Sid: Hello. Sid Roth here with Bruce Allen. And Bruce, you are moving in the Spirit more and more, and even better, you’re teaching people, you are equipped. Now I’ve heard of people getting mantles. You literally were given this mantle to teach people on transportation and translation.
Bruce: I was given the commission by the Lord when He spoke to me very clearly that this is what was calling me to do right now is to release people into their full inheritance as a believer in God, and part of that is the supernatural transportation or translation. And so as we have pursued the Lord in that and believe God for this we have seen astounding things happening in the lives of individuals, as well as our own lives, because as you know, the more you release the more you receive. And so there’s been a progression. And the Lord told me this. The first phase of what we’re teaching will be people will be caught away in the spirit and have those type of experiences. But the second aspect or the second phase of this will be people will be released physically to geographically go from one region to another as God directs, to do what God says to do.
Sid: Now I meet many people that are gifted in the Spirit, and even before they became believers they didn’t understand like gifts of prophesy, but they were actually working. They just didn’t understand what was going on. But in your case you were not naturally gifted in this area. You access everything you do by faith. Explain that.
Bruce: I know there was some type of gifting, but I had no outlet or no understanding, or any of that. Even when I became a believer in Yeshua, the first scripture passage the Lord gave me was Jeremiah 1: “Before I formed you in the womb I sanctified you and ordained you a prophet to the nations.” Well in 1973, anybody I asked what that meant had no concept. Are you going to be an evangelist, a pastor, or a missionary? And I had no idea. And so I had to begin to pursue the Lord diligently with passion and discover the fullness of what the Word of God has to teach in every area. And so, no, I was not naturally gifted in the majority of what I’m talking about now, but I was challenged by God. And because of that challenge it provoked me to press in and discover the fullness of what I had.
Sid: Do you believe, and this is the important question. Bruce, do you believe that everyone that knows the Messiah can operate in these supernatural areas that you’re describing?
Bruce: Absolutely. First Corinthians 14:1 says, “To earnestly desire spiritual gifts.” The key to anybody walking in the fullness of anything God has is the passion to pursue that particular gift. And so this is available to anybody that believes in Messiah.
Sid: You know, listening to your tapes you quote John 3:3 about “Seeing is our birthright.” Explain John 3:3.
Bruce: Absolutely. Nicodemus came to Jesus at night because he was afraid of the opinion of the rest of the Pharisees and the Sanhedrin. And Jesus said to Nicodemus, “Nicodemus, unless a man is born again he cannot see the Kingdom of God.” So what he was saying is, Nicodemus, if you’re born again, you can see the Kingdom. That has many facets of meaning. But the most prevalent is that as believers one of the aspects of the language of Heaven or the voice of God are visions or pictures. And we have neglected that aspect of our spiritual growth, if you will, by somehow by osmosis believing God only speaks in words.
Sid: So everyone can see the Kingdom of Heaven and move in the gifts of a seer. Tell me about the time you went to Latvia by faith.
Bruce: That was funny. That was, I had a sense in my spirit. We were doing a New Year’s conference, and I had a sense in my spirit that something supernatural was going to take place. So I had a good friend of mine, a professional photographer. I said, “You take pictures. I just have this feeling we’re going to catch something. I have no idea.” Well I told the pastor what the Lord had been challenging me with at that season, not because I was going to teach it. We were just talking. But they stood up and announced, “Bruce is going to teach on translation by faith tonight,” which put the fear of God in me because I was by no means ready for that, but because the Lord said, “You’re under authority. Do as they’ve asked.” Well during worship I’m praying and seeking the Lord and all of a sudden I’m caught away in the Spirit above the earth. It’s nighttime in Eastern Europe over there and I’m looking down on the country, and I said, “Lord is that Lithuania or Latvia?” He said, “Latvia.” When He said that we began to descend through the clouds in through the roof of an apartment complex, and I stood in front of a door, Number 212. And I heard a little girl crying. So I walked to open the door, I walked into the back, and in the back bedroom this little girl named Natalia, a Russian girl, was kneeling down and weeping beside her bed, praying to the Lord. Well I didn’t speak Russian, but this is a supernatural experience, so language is no barrier with God. And when I found out she was desperate because her parents could not get a job, they had no money, no food and they were about to be evicted. And so I got to minister to her, comfort her heart, pray with her, and I was brought back into the meeting where I was. And at that point I was teaching. And what’s interesting is the photographer caught the picture of me looking transparent, that they could actually see through me. He didn’t show that picture to me for six months because he didn’t know what to do with it. And it was six months before I remembered he was there to take pictures and catch something supernatural.
Sid: What Bruce is saying that we all have this access and he’s also told me he’s going to demonstrate it in the next segment. Don’t go away. We’ll be back right after this word.
