Ramadan can also be a pivotal time for Christians — a time to hope for God to indicate Muslims the reality of salvation via His Son, Jesus Christ.
Frontiers USA works amongst Islamic individuals teams to plant church buildings and introduce Muslims to Jesus within the Bible. Perry LaHaie with Frontiers says they hear tales on a regular basis from the mission subject of God miraculously revealing His reality to Muslim women and men.
“We hear them so often — God showing up in a dream or a vision [or] performing a miracle of healing. A lot of the times, it’s just something that prepares the heart of a Muslim person, and then many times, God will bring a follower of Jesus into that person’s life or they’ll get in touch with the Bible.”
LaHaie says he lately heard the story of Rachel, a Muslim girl whose father was an Islamic scholar. “Rachel’s father…felt like he actually did not perceive the Muslim holy e-book, the Quran, so he simply dove into it actually deep to know it higher. Rachel was impressed by her father’s need to know the Quran higher so she began her personal quest for reality.
“She ended up studying about Isa al-Masih, Jesus the Messiah, on-line. As she examine that and mirrored on what she was studying, one night time she simply cried out, ‘God, present me the reality.’
“Proper after that, her room was full of a superb gentle and she or he heard the phrases she had simply learn on-line from Jesus. She heard the phrases, ‘I’m the best way, the reality, and the life. Nobody involves the Father, besides by me.’
“When she had this vision of light and heard the words, she was convinced they were true.”
Rachel was so moved by Jesus’s phrases that she advised her mom concerning the imaginative and prescient, and her mom believed as effectively. One after the other, Rachel’s father, two brothers, sister, and sister’s fiance all got here to belief in Jesus as their Savior.
“It just seems like this is one of the things God is doing in the Muslim world — using dramatic signs, wonders, dreams, visions, and then getting Muslims connected with the Word,” LaHaie says. “It’s like a touch point that moves them forward, maybe breaks through the misconceptions they have, and opens them up to then hearing the Word.”
