Perhaps you’ve heard of Muslims encountering Jesus in visions and dreams in recent years.
Two missionaries shared first-hand testimonies of Muslims converting to Christianity in the Middle East at “levels we have never seen, not in 1,400 years!”
And this is happening in countries where it’s a danger to one’s life to be a follower of Christ.
“So many Muslims reject Islam but know that to follow Jesus will cost them everything,” Missionary Dick Brogden told Assemblies of God News in May. “Dreams of Jesus encourage them along the way and give them the comfort that Jesus will be with them — though it cost them everything to follow Him.”
James Bradford, the lead pastor of Central Assembly in Springfield, Missouri, shared a similar testimony about a Muslim woman who hated Christians and was suspicious of believers.
“She didn’t know what to do — she asked God for help,” Bradford said. “One night she had a dream where she saw a shepherd, walking about an empty tomb with a staff. The shepherd walked around it a few times, and then He headed directly toward the woman. He had a loaf of bread in His hands, which He broke and offered to her and as He did, He said, ‘Take, eat, this is my body.'”
The woman, who had never read the Bible, contacted a Christian to ask about it.
“He showed her in the Bible where Jesus had said those very words. The woman accepted Jesus as her Savior — and continues to serve him to this day,” he added.
A Saudi Arabian woman had a dream about heaven but feared it was the devil tricking her.
“She prayed: ‘Jesus, if you are the real God, I want to see you,'” Brogden said.
“Later, tending her sheep in the desert, she came across a pool of water,” he said. “Bending down to drink she looked into the water and saw in the reflection a massive man standing behind her. He held a shepherd’s staff and He was smiling. She whipped around, but there was no one there. She looked again in the water, and there was this massive Shepherd.”
But she still doubted and asked the Lord for more proof.
“Her mother was a cripple, bound to her chair, unable to walk. She prayed: ‘Jesus, if you are real and truly God, heal my mother and let her stand and walk!’ Immediately her mother stood up and began to walk around. The sister threw up her hands in surrender and shouted: ‘Jesus, I believe, I believe!'”

A few years ago, a Middle Easter missionary shared about a Muslim man who was visited by Jesus every night for a month, asking him to write down what He said.
“A man wearing all white knocks on my door every night, and I couldn’t look at Him because His face was so shiny and bright,” the man said. “When He would come inside, He asked me to write down what He said. And as I wrote, I would fall asleep. And then, the next night, He would come again… for the next month.”
“What did you write? May I see your notebook?” the missionary asked.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.
“He had the whole book of John verbatim in his notebook!” the missionary added. “This is amazing. Jesus visited him every night until he finished the book.”
The man asked the missionary, “What was this man that visited me?”
The missionary told him it was Jesus and led him to salvation.
