Reports from Saudi Arabia, Iran, Egypt, Syria and the West Bank have a similar message," claims Tom Doyle, E3 Partners Ministry Director for the Middle East and Central Asia. "You're on the wrong path; you're on the wrong road. Leave this place and follow Me," is an example of what Jesus is saying.
"It's true," says Doyle. "Muslims are coming to Christianity through dreams and visions. Great things are happening in the Muslim world. It's all very unexpected. Of course no one is going to bed a Muslim and waking up a Christian, but often times the dream is the first step in their faith journey."
Former radicalized Muslim and current Christian minister, Walid Shoebat, wasn't convinced.
"I had first doubted the countless stories of Muslims becoming Christians as a result of dreams until I met some of them and heard their testimonies."
"My conclusion to this phenomenon is that Christ succeeds where the church fails."
Shoebat believes the Western church is missing a great opportunity to win Muslims to Christianity because sharing with them isn't "on the radar."
"Tourists and Christian pilgrims rarely would witness to us when they visited the Holy Land out of fear and respect to Islam," Shoebat said.
So is this phenomenon on the up and up?
"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.'" Acts 2:17Maybe God decided it was time to take matters into His own hands.
A wise man once said: "We are so often blind to the people--both to their spiritual needs and to their readiness and openness to Jesus. We see their lifestyle and forget that God is able to work powerfully in them when the time is right. This is a lesson about taking the blinders off, to develop new eyes to see the harvest." -- Dr. Ralph I. Wilson, Jesus Walk Ministry
