Above is an incredible picture that was taken of Bruce Allen while ministering; and when the photo was taken, Bruce was being translated.

The miraculous and supernatural signs and wonders are ramping up in these days; for even as the Bible promises, when the enemy comes in as a flood, the Lord raises up a standard against him!
Now I know, before I even get started, that there will be a certain portion of you who will say that this picture has been photo shopped, and will right off the bat respond in unbelief.
To those people, I can only suggest that you look to the Word of God, where God says that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
The miraculous signs and wonders have never ceased, folks, not in our time, nor in any other time… not since the Day of Pentecost!
What has ceased, however, is the faith of the church, and Believers within the church, to believe and expect the miraculous and supernatural; and consequently doubt and unbelief have dominated the church, at least it has here in the West.
Not so in the Third World countries however, where miraculous and supernatural manifestations have become a normal part of ministry there for quite some time.
I know personally that this is happening, after having met a man, in my trip to Phenom Phen, Cambodia a few years ago, who had been raised from the dead, after having been dead for more than 12 hours.
I have a friend, named Dave, who was ministering in India a few years back, and the first person he prayed for had no eye balls; and God did a creative miracle right there, and put eyes balls in his eye sockets.
The question arises, why are these signs and wonders not more commonplace here in the West?
For my part, I think it is for the same reason that the Bible records that Jesus could not do very much, in the way of miracles, in His own home town, among his own people, and the reason that was given was because of their unbelief.
It is after all Jesus, Himself, who promises us that ALL things are possible, if only we can believe.
Based on that one promise alone, I would say that the only limitation we have, for us to appropriate more of the supernatural in our own daily life, is found in our tendency to put God in our religious boxes, where we aren’t really expecting or believing for God to manifest the supernatural.
This is not just for the few to experience; but this is for all of God’s children.
However, it won’t happen in an atmosphere where the Holy Spirit is not given free rein; and where people are fearful of what they don’t know, or understand.
Know this, God will not override the pastor, and whatever ceiling your pastor has established for his level of belief in these areas, will also be your ceiling too!!! Selah
These supernatural manifestations are to be used as a tool to witness and evangelize; and I believe it will happen as we press in towards more face time and intimacy with God, as per 2nd Chronicles 7:14.
We need this more than ever, folks, and our country needs it.
The Holy Spirit was sent, as the POWER of God, to unite the church; to teach us and lead us into all truth; and also to convict the world of their need for a Saviour.
The enemy, however, has made it a subject of controversy and division, which in and of itself should tell you something, about how important all of this is.
Once again, I want to say that the only limitation we have is between our own two ears!
I don’t know about you, but I’m thirsty for more of this myself, in my own life… and I’m pressing in! How about you?
Come with us, and join in on the adventure… won’t you?
