Sid: My guest is red hot for the Messiah Shane Warren. And Shane tell me about the person that you prayed for in Mississippi whose eye wasn’t there, it was all milky white.
Shane: We had a young lady as I was preaching like as I said in Mississippi at a church and we were holding a camp meeting down there. And I was actually teaching on some of the keys that are in this book that God has put on me to write. As I was teaching in the middle of it I said “I feel right now that I’m supposed to stop and I’m supposed to pray for people to be healed.” This lady comes up to us, this young lady, her eye is milky white; it’s like you can just barely see anything at all as far as a pupil, it’s just milked over. She can’t see out of this eye. Sid it was the first time ever in the history of my walk with Jesus where I knew that I knew that I knew beyond a shadow of doubt that God was getting ready to heal this little girl. I was so confident of it I had some ministry students who travel with me because we have a school of ministry at our church. I said “I want all of my students to come here because God’s getting ready to do a miracle for this young lady.” They gathered in behind me and the Lord just spoke to me, or inspired me rather, just to speak these words “Let the eye look straight on.” And I don’t know why I was led to say that just the Holy Spirit just I believe prompted me to say that. And as soon as I said “Let the eye look straight on.” All of a sudden this milky substance disappeared off this eye and the pupil began to form. All of a sudden her eye began to come into focus and would be like a person who’s blind and all of a sudden their eye just focuses on somebody. In a moment she just focused that eye, her attention on me and when that happened all of my students started going wild. I mean they couldn’t believe…
Sid: What did they see with their eyes, what did those 25 students see?
Shane: They saw literally, God healed this woman’s eyes and just with their own eyes they saw God heal this woman.
Sid: Now you said it was milky white did it look normal or was she just able to see.
Shane: All of a sudden her eye became completely normal.
Shane: As if a new eye had been formed, her eye became completely normal. The church began to erupt in praise. People began to come from all over the community and God began to heal people and deliver people in those services. One of the most wonderful things for me though was for those students to see it because Sid there’s so many people that don’t believe in the power of the supernatural that it’s available any more. Some of the sensationalists say that those days are gone. But Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. And so He still does those miracles, and for those students who are going to go out and do ministry themselves to see the power of God in operation was just worth everything to me for that to happen.
Sid: Now, God shows you that when you go into this the Holy of Holies which He’s shown you how to get into. Not only do you operate in power where you see miracles like you just described but He’s even shown you personally a business idea. Explain.
Shane: Well, He showed me he told me I was going to come into a divine connection one of these times I was in the presence of the Lord. He told me I would come into a divine relationship and that this connection would lead me into an opportunity, a business opportunity. And in my personal time with the Lord I was reading through the book of Acts, I saw where Peter had watched the sheep come down from heaven really to talk about the forming of this one new man, Jews and Gentiles coming into Christ. And He sees His sheep come down from heaven and it has all of these unclean animals on it. And He spoke to him and said “Don’t call what’s unclean clean.” And the Lord told me I’m going to bring you into divine business relationship and it’s going to be something that’s outside of what you would normally do. And He said “When I do this don’t call unclean, what I’ve called clean.” Not long after that God began to form this relationship that we talked about and this one business idea has blessed my wife and I beyond our wildest imagination. I mean if I told your listeners how big of a blessing they would not even believe it. But it literally came out of a moment of intimacy with God where God revealed to me that that was going to happen.
Sid: Okay, you’ve made a statement in which I copied down. You said that most Christians pray “Lord send Your power down.” They should be praying “I want to come up to where You are.” Well, what do you mean by that?
Shane: Well according to the book of Hebrews the blood of Jesus gives us access to the throne room so that we can come boldly into the throne of grace. The majority of all of our Christian experience and our church experience to be quite frank are us begging God to come down, we’ll even sing songs “Come down Lord, come down.” When in reality the blood of Jesus has given us access not only for Him to come down but for us to come up.” We’re supposed to be seated with Christ in the heavenly places and the blood of Jesus gives us access to that.
Sid: Well you know I’ve never really understood this but after listening to your teaching I’m beginning to see it. The Bible says that “We are seated in Jesus, and Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father.” And yet I know that I’m seated in Charlotte, North Carolina and you’re seated in West Monroe, Louisiana. And so we’re actually in 2 places at one time, is that what’s going on?
Shane: Absolutely, why couldn’t we be we are spirit beings right? We have a body that we live in and so yes we can dwell, God put us here on the earth but spiritually we have access into the heavens. And you know some people ask me “Where is heaven at?” And I heard people say “Heaven’s on the other side of the universe.” I don’t necessarily think that heaven is on the other side of the universe, can’t find anything in scripture that supports that necessarily. I think that heaven is just a different realm, that where God’s at is just a different realm. Possibly a parallel universe that you and I can just walk in and out of because of the blood of Jesus we have access into these realms.
Sid: It’s something like the fourth dimension.
Shane: Yeah, almost like that. And I believe that that’s the reason Jesus could say “The Kingdom is coming but then also turn around and say “The Kingdom is here.” How can it be coming and be here? Well it can be both if it’s just in a different dimension.
Sid: Or when He said “I only do what I see my Father in heaven doing.” He was seeing it as He was doing it. And He was in those 2 different dimensions.
Shane: Absolutely, and I believe that’s possible for every Christian. You know in the Old Testament in the book of Daniel it talks about the Ancient of Days the Son going to the Ancient of Days and it makes this statement. It says “And they brought Him near.” So when Jesus ascended to the Father they had these angelic escorts into the throne room. But in the New Testament saints have a different escort. The Bible says “We draw near by the blood of Jesus,” and we have an escort into the heavenlies that we don’t use. The blood of Jesus gives us escort right to the very throne-room of God Himself.
Sid: Tell me because this is what you do in your new book, this is what you do in the 3 CD’s… during that 7 hours that you were in the spirit that you heard keys of how to be in the spirit at all times, how to be normal. You even make the statement that this is the key for the last day move of God’s Spirit. Tell us some of these keys.
Shane: Well I absolutely believe that this is one of the keys for the last day move. The reason I believe that is that the Bible speaks of Psalm 102 of the restoration of Israel and specifically Jerusalem. And it says “This was prophesied for a generation to come.” The word “to come” there is the Hebrew word “akaron” which means the final generation. And then it qualifies what that generation is. It says “And this shall be a people who are created to praise the Lord.” So I believe this coming into a revelation of our intimacy with Christ and our personal worship and praise and what it can produce is key to literally the last day outpouring of the Holy Spirit around the globe. Because it is the generation the Bible says before the coming of the Lord it’s going to be generation who understands the power of praise and worship. And so I definitely believe that it has everything to do with the last days.
Sid: Now you’re a pastor of a local church, the hottest church in Louisiana so the leaders have voted it. Are you seeing the members of your church where you’ve been teaching this doing what you’ve been teaching what’s happening to you are they doing?
Shane: Absolutely, I have taught my members how to access the holy of holies for themselves. One of my favorite things to teach on all around the globe and this is what people invite me all over the country to teach about is the authority of the believer, the right of the believer and how the believer has access into the heavens. I’ve taught our people this and as a result our people are getting miracles for themselves. They don’t need me to lay hands on them. I believe that’s the reason when they come to church the atmosphere is so charged with the miraculous presence of God. It’s because they’re coming with this expectancy and faith. Most people only worship Jesus on Sunday in church. But the Bible says that when we come to church we should all come to church with a song, with a word, with a tongue and interpretation. We should have had such intimate time alone that God has been speaking to us so that when we come together and form that symphony on the earth that touches heaven that we are coming with these experiences to share with the entire body. So in our church we have these expressions are available, even the gifts of the Holy Spirit moving. We allow these expressions to move in our church so as a result people are saved and when I say saved I’m talking about by the hundreds and thousands people get saved, filled with the Holy Spirit…
Sid: Whoops we’re out of time I’m sorry Shane….
