SID: So Dr. Brian Simmons has this vision of a TV screen and he sees a dead baby coming back to life. He’s in India, 10,000 people. What happens?
BRIAN: I took 20 people from our church. We went to preach the Gospel, to do works of charity and blessing in orphanages. And the one night, we had a large crowd. And as I was speaking from Luke 5, Jesus’ power to heal, that there is no sickness, no disease that Jesus Christ could not heal, over on the left side of my vision I saw a television screen open up, and I knew that whatever I was to see I was to tell the vision. I saw it on a television. And what I saw was a mother carrying, weeping, carrying a dead baby. And I just, before I could think about it, I had just spoken out. I said, “There’s a woman that’s coming to the meeting tonight. You have come carrying a dead child. God wants to raise your baby from the dead. If you will come forward right now, God is going to raise your child from the dead.” And my team behind me, 20 of our people from our church, great mighty faith-filled people, they screamed out. I heard them behind me saying, “No Pastor Brian, oh no!”
SID: What’s the probability of someone bringing a dead baby to a meeting? Okay. Go ahead.
BRIAN: And I’m sure they were, what if it doesn’t come back to life? What’s going to happen to our whole thing. And so you heard the scream back in the crowd, and a mother made her way. This precious woman had walked all day through the heat from one village far away, by foot. She came, just as I spoke that vision, she had just come to the outer fringe of the meeting and heard that come out of the loud speaker. She screamed and said, “This is for me!” And so she brought the child down to me, and I had never took Raising the Dead 101 course in Bible college.
SID: I’m sure.
BRIAN: Matter of fact, I don’t think they even believed in that in the Bible college I was at. But I didn’t know what to do. But I said, “Give me the baby.” And I knew I couldn’t like lay on it seven times or like the prophet did. I asked the Lord, “What do you want me to do?” He said, “Take the child.” I took the child. I laid that baby on a table much like this and as soon as my hand hit the table and the baby’s head was in my hand, it was like a lightning bolt came and that child didn’t get up, it jumped up. It just jumped right into the arms of his mother. The mother then made arrangements for transportation for her back to her village. She came late at night into the village bringing the baby that was alive. You see, he had drowned in a drainage ditch that morning and the mother brought him all the way to our crusade, to our meetings there. And now they see this child alive coming back into the village. A church was birthed because of that resurrection. And the pastor, guess who the pastors of the church are now?
SID: The parents obviously.
BRIAN: The mother who saw that resurrection and her dear husband, they are pastoring a church of well over a thousand people south of Madurai, India because of that miracle.
SID: Okay. 2009, Brian Simmons gets a new assignment. What happened?
BRIAN: Jesus Christ came into my room. He breathed on me and he commissioned me.
SID: When he breathed on you, I have to ask you this, what did it feel like?
BRIAN: It felt like a kiss from Heaven. It felt like Heaven’s wind. The rock, the breath, the wind of God came upon me. And he spoke to me and said, “I’m commissioning you to translate the Bible into the translation project that I’m giving you to do.” And he promised that he would help me, and he promised me that he would give me secrets of the Hebrew language.
SID: Do you believe that when he blew on you it was an impartation for revelation?
BRIAN: I do. I believe the spirit of revelation was given. And I have to say, when he breathed on me in no way would I want to compare that to the writers of the New Testament, the original writers, you know, Moses and the Torah, and Ezekiel. He breathed on me so that I would do the project, and I felt downloads coming, instantly. I received downloads. It was like, I got a chip put inside of me. I got a connection inside of me to hear him better, to understand the scriptures better and hopefully to translate.
SID: Are you finding that when people read the translation you’re working on that it almost does a mind bypass and goes directly into the heart?
BRIAN: I think that’s a brilliant way to say it. The poetic language of Hebrew and Aramaic released something inside of us. It’s Divine. It is full of revelation. There’s flavor. It’s not, it’s like thinking with your heart. It’s like heart level to heart level, spirit to spirit, deep calling out toeep.
SID: Passion is the operative word. This translation will give you that passion back. When welcome back, I’m going to talk, as a matter of fact, Brian told me that he had a word. I believe it’s going to release some miracles. Also, I got to find out about that library. Are you interested? I know you are. Are you?
