SID: Now it’s wonderful that Shawn hears from God so clearly, but can every person hear from God?

SHAWN: What I love about my life is that my parents just raised me to believe and they just nurtured the atmosphere. I wasn’t born under a sign. I wasn’t born like special. Some of the people you hear who have prophetic callings, like the whole world was against them, the universe was against them and they emerged in this victorious sovereign gifting, and I feel like they were sovereign vessels. But I feel like I represent kind of a new breed of just everyday people who are called to hear from God in powerful ways, and as we pursue him, First Corinthians 14:1, where it says, “Pursue love like your love depends on it and eagerly desire prophecy.” And that’s been my life. I’ve just been hungry that God would speak because I know what happens when he speaks and it causes everything to multiply and accelerate. Everything changes. All our opportunities change. So for me, I don’t think, like I’ve been around real prophets or sovereign vessels. I feel like I’ve had some of those demonstrations in my life. But when I go home at night I don’t feel like God is pursuing me like a prophet. I feel like I’m pursuing him out of hunger for who he is and it’s just a beautiful thing that I think everybody can have that.

SID: When you prophesy, what is going on with love in connection with prophecy? What are you trying to accomplish?

SHAWN: Well I’m trying to see someone in the original form that God created them to be before the delineation. I’m trying to see them like the best version of who they are, the best version of what God, Jesus paid a price for this amazing abundant life. So what would they look like if all of a sudden they were restored to that original plan if it was all the delineation was gone, all the sin, immorality, the character issues, the family issues, all that stuff was just not in the equation any more. What would it look like?

SID: We wouldn’t even recognize people.

SHAWN: We wouldn’t.

SID: Because God has, I guess he wants to get us as close to the original man, Adam, as possible and it is possible.

SHAWN: It is possible. That’s what I’m looking at and when I see that spiritually, something happens that connects inside of me where I start to see sometimes people’s birthdays by a word of knowledge because God thought of us for millions of years. He knew the day we were going to be born. And everybody loves a birthday, so if you say, is your birthday March 15th, someone goes, how did you know? How did you know my birth date?

SID: You prayed for people that have moved in to knowing dates?

SHAWN: Oh yes. So many people, thousands of reports now, thousands of reports of people knowing dates, anniversary dates, birth dates, phone numbers, social security numbers, bank account numbers, secret information you cannot research. Some people say, you can get it off Facebook. Not really. There is so much you cannot research that God is giving us right now. I mean, one of the billionaires that I met with, he at one point admits…

Man 1: I’m actually not a believer. I believe Jesus was a historic figure, but I really don’t believe in God. You don’t actually believe that Jesus is like real today, do you?

Man 2: I don’t even know how to answer that. I can’t get into a theological debate right now. I have something.

SHAWN: I took the biggest risk I had to take it at that point, and I started to say a 25-character long thing. I didn’t know what it was. I thought it was like…

Man 2: 101-ED#674237654299.

Man 1: That’s our most private bank account number. Even you don’t know it.

Woman: What?

Man 1: Only the banker and I know this.

SHAWN: He got saved because I knew his banking number that no one could have researched.

SID: I’ll tell you, I am excited that Shawn has this gift, but I have even greater excitement that did you hear what he said? Thousands he knows when he prays get these gifts. Tell me about the prostitute in Hawaii.

SHAWN: I went, I was walking down, I was in Honolulu on a trip and I was walking to get a Subway sandwich. It was like 10:00 at night and they had put me in a beautiful condo, but it was right outside the red light district, which thank God, I’m used to red light districts. Our team ministers had them. So we’re walking right at the beginning of the red light district.

Man 1: Hey bud, you want something?

Man 2: No. I am hungry for some sandwiches.

Man 1: Want a girl?

SHAWN: And he pointed at a girl who was 16 years old on the steps with two teenage boys, and I could tell just from our work with prostitution that she wasn’t in the game very long if at all. And so I looked at her. It just concerned me. I just had this father’s heart hit me like if that was my daughter what would I do. She’s a runaway on the streets. I just had a discernment of knowing, you know. And I walked over to her and I said hey…

Man: Can I talk to you for a minute.

Girl: Yeah.

Man: I’m a pastor, a Christian. I believe God thought of you millions of years before you were ever created. What do you want to do to with your life?

Girl: I don’t know.

Man: Okay. Close your eyes. Repeat after me. God thought of you for millions of years.

Girl: God, I know you thought of me for millions of years.

Man: What did you create for me to do?

Girl: What did you create for me to do?

Man: That you would find the most joy in?

Girl: That you would find the most joy in? [scream] I just heard something. I’m supposed to be a cook.

Man: Like a chef?

Girl: Yeah.

Man: Do you like cooking?

Girl: I don’t know.

SHAWN: Okay. Let’s pray again. Let’s ask God for one step towards that you can make this week so you can change your whole life. She goes, okay. She prays and she goes, “I’m supposed to call my uncle.” And I said, “This is awesome. Why would you call your uncle?” She goes, “He has a diner. I think he’ll hire me and he might give me a place to sleep and a place to live.” And I said, “Do you promise to call. Here’s my phone number.” We exchanged phone numbers and the boy next to her was, “I want a dream.” [unintelligible] And we agreed on something, and he actually heard, “I’m going into the military,” which he did. So six months later, she calls me.

Man: Hello.

Girl: My uncle wants to open another diner with me.

Man: Are you going to college for business administration?

Girl: No. We’re opening it next month in the bowling alley. He’s giving me 50 percent ownership.

SHAWN: Just 17 years old and is a co-owner of a diner. She was a prostitute.

SID: You see the transformation. If that were you helping that prostitute who’s going to end up dead someday and transforming her to who God originally intended. What do you mean, by the way, your book is called “Translating God”, what do you mean by “translating God”?

SHAWN: You know, I go to a lot of countries, and I go to a lot of translators, and there’s good translators and there’s bad translators. Most of the time I have really great translators. And it’s amazing we have a good translator because they’re communicating the whole heart essence of what you’re saying. They’re almost like symbiotic with you. They’re part of your heart in that moment and they’re not thinking the whole time. They’re actually just clearly communicating the articulation of your heart and I felt like God was saying, “I want you to be my translator. I want you to translate my heart to the earth’s right now, not just my language, not just be a parrot and repeat the words.” There was an old school mentality of the prophetic, just deliver the mail, don’t look at it. God is saying, “Look at the mail, read it, fall in love with the people the mail is for and then give it to them with all your heart.” And so translation takes more than just repeating something. It actually takes culturizing yourself into a culture where it comes from. Like ours is the Kingdom of Heaven. So I wrote this book. My wife actually named it. But I wrote this book because we’re called to translate God on the earth to ourselves and around us. We know we’re mature when we understand what he’s saying to us. We know we’re mature in effect when we can change the world around us with his voice.

SID: Can you imagine you can have the same job as Shawn translating God. When we come back, he loves to pray for people and after he prays for them they actually see Heaven. They actually hear God’s voice. They actually translate God. Be right back.
