Millions of Muslims all over the world are giving their lives to Jesus Christ, and in many instances, this is happening because of dreams, visions and other supernatural encounters.
Recently I have been writing a lot about the decline of Christianity in America and about the judgment that is about to hit our churches. Fortunately, the decaying state of the church in the United States is only a small part of the overall story. In other areas of the globe, Christianity is experiencing absolutely explosive growth even in the midst of horrendous persecution. This is particularly true in Islamic nations, where we are seeing things happen that could have come straight out of the Book of Acts.
All over the planet, Jesus is personally visiting Muslims in supernatural ways, and this has resulted in an enormous wave of conversions. Earlier today, I ran across an article about a family of Syrian refugees who converted to Christianity while living in Lebanon, and it all happened because of a dream:
Abu Radwan enters a church on the outskirts of Beirut with his wife and two kids. His wife removes the black head scarf covering her hair. It was here, a year and a half ago, that they converted to Christianity.
“Of course it was a difficult decision,” Abu Radwan says. “I was born into a Muslim family.”
The family is from the city of Homs in Syria. They sought refuge in Lebanon at the beginning of the war. Then two years ago, Abu Radwan says Jesus appeared to him in a dream.
“I started going to the church,” he says. “I believed that Jesus was coming to help us, to save us.”
When it comes to supernatural encounters, there is literally nobody who is out of the reach of the Lord Jesus. One of my favorite examples is a former ISIS fighter who came to know the Lord after Jesus told him in a dream that he was “killing my people”:
Gina Fadely, the director of Youth With A Mission Frontier Missions (YWAM), told The Voice of the Martyrs Radio Network one of their workers met a former ISIS fighter who murdered Christians, but converted after a dream:
“He told this YWAM leader that he had begun having dreams of this man in white who came to him and said, ‘You are killing my people.’ And he started to feel really sick and uneasy about what he was doing,” Fadely continued. “The fighter said just before he killed one Christian, the man said, ‘I know you will kill me, but I give to you my Bible.’ The Christian was killed, and this ISIS fighter actually took the Bible and began to read it. In another dream, Jesus asked him to follow him, and he was now asking to become a follower of Christ and to be discipled.”
