Miracle in the Muslim world continues

CBN is reporting on a topic I have raised here before, that of the phenomenon of large numbers of Muslims in the Muslim world who are converting to Christianty through a dream oo vision that they experience...

"Several years ago, Ali took the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca known as Hajj.

"Of course when I went to Mecca I was going there in order to pay hommage to the Kabba and to fulfill the requirements in Islam," he recalled.

But the trip became more of a spiritual journey than he could ever imagine.

"That night I saw Jesus in a dream. First, Jesus touched my forehead with his finger. And after touching me, He said, 'You belong to me,'" Ali recalled.

"And then He touched me above my heart," he continued. "'You have been saved, follow me. You belong to me,' he said."

Ali's story in Mecca was told and dramatized in a DVD called "More Than Dreams." (above image)

"I decided I'm not going to finish the Hajj, the pilgrimage. Whatever it takes, I'm going to follow that voice," he explained.

The film documents and dramatizes Ali's story and several other Muslims who came to faith in Jesus through a dream or vision."

I recall years ago reading an account in one of Lee Strobel's books (I forget which) regarding a certain Muslim, professional woman in the banking industry, living in a predominately Muslim country. She was not finding fulfillment and answers through the teachings of Islam and her heart yearned for something else. Then one day when leaving work, she suddenly asked, seemingly out of nowhere, 'Is it you I need Jesus?'. She hadn't been raised in a culture that takes Christianity seriously and she couldn't explain how such a thought suddenly came upon her and she eventually became a Christian.

Strobel's book went on to hypothesize that perhaps God has the ability to break through cultural barriers and meet people where they are, regardless of environment and upbringing. The underlying impression here would seem to be that those who truly seek Him will find Him. He will find a way and come to you, if that's what is necessary, in order to take you home to Him.
