When Jesus Questions the Secret Police

Apr 17, 2019

Secret police are a fact of life in Syria, spying on and arresting anyone who would try to convert a Muslim to Christianity.

So Jesus is making Himself known to Muslims through dreams and visions.

One particularly amazing story is that of a man named Adel*, who encountered Jesus in his dreams every night for thirty nights. Adel became a Christian and began leading a secret house church - which quickly made him a target of the secret police.

After his release from a 40-day prison sentence, Adel noticed that he was being followed by Mohammad, a secret police officer he encountered in prison. Mohammad approached Adel and asked, "Why do you think I keep having dreams about Jesus?" Adel was shocked and wondered if it was a trick.

Mohammad explained that he would listen in the shadows when Adel would recite Psalms in his cell each day. The Word of God had pierced his heart. Then Jesus began appearing to him in his dreams and asked him, "Mohammad, why are you persecuting Me?"

Stories like this demonstrate the urgent need for Bibles in the Muslim world.

Liberty Relief International is working with a Christ-centered partner in the Middle East who can provide urgently needed Bibles in local languages for just 5 dollars each. Currently, we are only halfway to our goal to send 2500 Bibles this month.

Will you help us reach this goal with your best gift today to place a Bible into the hands of new believers like Mohammad?

Ironically, Mohammad - who had questioned and interrogated many about converting to Christianity - became a believer when Jesus questioned the interrogator. Now, God is using Mohammad as he continues his job in the secret police...as a secret Christian.

Your gift of 25, 50, 100 dollars or more today will make a life-changing difference to men, women and children who receive your gift of God's Word in their native language.

Please help LRI send the light of His Word as a gift to new believers suffering persecution by making your tax-deductible gift now.

Thank you, in advance, for being a lifeline of compassion and provision to those in need.

God bless you,

Mat Staver

P.S. Adel's story can be read in full in the book, Dreams and Visions: Is Jesus Awakening the Muslim World?, by pastor and missionary Tom Doyle. You will be encouraged by the stories he shares of people he has personally encountered who have come to faith in Christ through dreams and visions. They need Bibles now. Please send your best gift today. Thank you!
