Muslims around the world have been turning to Jesus as Christ sends his amazing messages of faith, love and hope.
Christians are persecuted in the Middle East, where they are a minority and Muslims are the majority – but all things are possible in Christ.
Through the miracles of dreams and visions, many Muslims are converting to follow the Great I Am.
Open Door USA shared the story of Amir and Rasha, both of whom are using assumed names for their protection.
Amir and Rasha fled their homes in Homs with their two children.
“Since 2012, we have been living in a tent,” Amir shared. “It’s not an easy life. About a year ago my wife’s mother was killed by a sniper when she went out to have some fresh air. My wife’s brother was killed on his way home.”
Rasha shared how difficult their lives were but admitted: “About three months ago, I was given a vision of Jesus Christ. I was sleeping and all of a sudden I saw Jesus Christ in white. He said, ‘I am Christ. You will have a beautiful daughter.’
“I was eight months pregnant, and a month later we received our beautiful daughter.”
Amir shared he had a dream at around the same time.
Amir and Rasha, who were Muslims when Christ approached them, made a monumental decision.
“We decided to follow him. We named our baby Christina. We left our old Islamic customs.”
Amir stopped going to the mosque but Rasha continues to dress as a Muslim woman with her head covered by a veil.
“Our clan is very big; we’re afraid now. They might kill us,” Rasha explained.
Amir admitted: “Our family knows we are Christians now. Becoming a Christian is, for them, the same as if I had destroyed the Kaaba in Saudi Arabia. It is because we walked in the darkness and are now in the light. I want to protect my family.”
Rasha said they were no longer safe in their community. “We now have no fixed place to life, we go from place to place,” she described.
In Syria, Amir worked as a carpenter but said: “I have no work in Lebanon. Our financial situation is bad. Now, because we are Christians, others don’t want to help us. The church is helping as much as possible.”
Knowing their future is uncertain, they still hold hope.
Amir explained: “The most important thing is that we know Jesus Christ as our Savior. He will save us. We regularly pray to the Lord, we freely worship Him, and He protects us. God is with us. God will resolve our situation.”
Many others have shared their stories of hope and faith in the Lord as well.
Abu Radwan, a Muslim man who says Jesus appeared to him in a dream, told PRI: “I started going to church. I believed that Jesus was coming to help us, to save us…Of course it was a difficult decision. I was born into a Muslim family.”
Knowing the dangers of converting to Christianity, Radwan threw caution to the wind and faithfully followed Jesus. He was accepted as a member of the Christian church and was baptized with his wife and children.
Bishop George Saliba reported he has baptized roughly 100 Muslim Syrian refugees since 2011.
“Because [of] the constitution of Lebanon, they have the right to change their religion [here]. But in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, it is impossible.”
It is illegal for Muslims to convert in Muslim-majority countries and many refugees are desperate for something real, something their faith can’t fill, so when Christ offers them hope, love and eternity, they accept.
He was given a Bible by a Christian man he killed and, later, he began to read it. It was then he received the dream where Jesus invited him to become a follower of Christ.
Please pray for Muslims around the world. Ask for more dreams and visions for these lost souls. Turn the tide of the world with miracles and conversions to Christ.
