Muslims convert to Christianity after seeing Jesus in dreams or visions. In those places that are not accessible to evangelists, God penetrates by revealing Himself to people.

Job 33:15 says,

He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night when deep sleep falls on people as they lie in their beds.

Of course, we need to evaluate everything that we see and hear. As the word of God says, “test the spirits”. Yes, there are counterfeit dreams and visions as Satan always copies and twists God’s truth, but still, there are genuine experiences. And the promise in Acts 2:17 still stands, and it says,

“In the last days”, God says, “I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.”

“Do You Love Me?”

I remember talking to a friend that was going through a rough season, and in that season, she asked God if He loved her. She reached a point where she wanted to hear from God personally. This friend reads her Bible every day and has encountered the Lord personally in the past, so I was thinking, “She should know better”, but somehow she wanted somewhat of a burning bush experience — a personal encounter with the Lord — one more time.

When she confided in me, I directed her again to the cross. You know, we love to lay down a sound Biblical message to answer, once-and-for-all, a basic question, and get it over with. We have heard it said that the cross is the greatest expression of God’s love, right? So that should remove her insecurities or whatever was bothering her. But somehow, she wanted more.

So I sent her a testimony video of Kim Walker-Smith I chanced upon some five years ago, in hopes that from another person’s encounter she can get a personal revelation. (Do watch it, too, when you have time.)

And she watched it. A few days later, I received a message from her.
