In my city, Uppsala, Sweden, there was a Muslim lady a couple of years ago that wanted to take her life. Different depressing circumstances in her life forced her to this horrible decision, and even though she prayed and prayed to Allah to help her, she didn’t get a response. Which really isn’t that strange, since the gift of prophecy has ceased according to Islam – Muhammad was the last and final prophet.

Her soul being in total despair, she went to the train station of Uppsala to throw herself in front of the train. However, when she got there she went into a jewelry shop for no reason. She didn’t know why, she just went in.

The shop owner greeted her, but she remained silent. Then he said, “The Lord has showed me that you want to take your life. Don’t do it, turn to Jesus and believe in him. You are now a Muslim, but the Lord is calling you to Jesus.”

Needless to say, the woman just wept and wept, recieved Jesus and is still living today.

I’ve heard this story before, but yesterday I had the privilige of meeting this lady’s cousin, Hamid, while I and my church were doing street evangelism. He had become a Christian through her, and recently he had led his wife to Jesus as well. He shared how his cousin was eager to share her testimony with everyone, just like the Samaritan woman (John 4:39). And she is passionately in love with the God who saved her through His prophetic gift.

In fact, I think Jesus loves to speak to Muslims for the very reason that there is a hunger for prophecy but they aren’t really allowed to exercise it within their own faith. As Mark Stibbe points out in his book Prophetic Evangelism, there are countless testimonies about Muslims seeing Jesus in a dream. Literally countless. I myself have several Muslim and ex-Muslim friends who have seen Jesus. One missionary in the Middle East says that 95 percent of the converts he connects with has found Jesus through dreams and visions.

I’m so glad that our Muslim brothers and sisters get to experience the joy of hearing Jesus’ voice. Sure, it’s nice to read about God in a book as well, but neither the Qur’an nor the Bible will ever say to you “Today you have decided to take your life. You are now a Muslim, but the Lord is calling you to Jesus.” Such miracles require the holy gift of prophecy.

    If only Christians in my country could see how much Jesus loves them. All they can see is the bloodshed and the fear. There are exceptions, but mostly I hear fear and derision.

    We are living in the last days. His Word tells us that in that day, there will be visions and dreams. God is calling His children from all corners of the earth, time is short….share the Good News of Salvation, and be watching and waiting!
