More than 200 Muslims in Gaza have reportedly asked to follow Jesus after encountering Him in a dream. That’s according to Christian professor and president of the US-based Risen Jesus ministry Michael Licona. He received reports of supernatural “miraculous conversions” from underground churches in Palestinian communities. He posted on social media that “God is working in the midst of war,” adding:
“This news coming out of Palestine from underground Christian ministries:”
Over the past two days, we have ministered to hundreds of fathers who have lost most, if not all, of their children in the war. As we moved these men to safety, we fed them, washed their clothes, and began to read the Bible to them — sharing the way of peace through Jesus. Then, a big miracle happened. Last night, Jesus appeared to more than 200 of them in their dreams! They have come back to us to learn more from God’s Word and are asking how to follow Jesus.
I side with Israel in this war; not necessarily for theological reasons but because Hamas and those backing it are pure evil. Yet, I know that not all Palestinians support Hamas. In fact, they will be punished severely if even suspected of not supporting Hamas. Let’s pray that this war can be over soon and that Israel can eradicate Hamas so that Palestinians can be free of Hamas!
Former Muslim turned Christian-apologist Nabeel Qureshi who told his amazing conversion story in his best-selling book Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus: A Devout Muslim Encounters Christianity, once wrote: “Mike Licona was instrumental in my journey out of Islam to Christ. While I was a Muslim college student, Mike invited me to his home regularly to discuss the historicity of Jesus’s death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead. The evidence Mike presented was so compelling it formed the keystone of my conversion. Since then, I have seen his work so powerfully impact thousands with historical evidence of the Christian faith.”
The Pakistani-American evangelical Christian died from cancer in 2017. His testimony, and that of thousands of other Muslims converts to Christianity, sought to explain that God spoke to them through dreams and visions. Mr. Qureshi shared that Muslims earnestly seek to hear God through dreams and visions because they don’t believe they can hear revelatory messages from God.
He explained that Muslims have a special prayer asking for dreams and visions. He stated that they are prepared to hear God supernaturally and that, “supernatural revelation in the Middle East is bringing people to Christ.” Mission Frontiers magazine has reported that up to 25% of Muslim converts experienced a dream that led to their conversion.
