Dreams of Jesus in Iran

by WK

Fabian led the visitor into the basement of the house in Iran. “This is where we meet for church,” said Fabian. The visitor saw a group of men and women sitting in chairs. “Have you people really seen Jesus?” asked the visitor. A woman named Aishia spoke. “I had a dream. I heard a voice speaking out of a glowing light. A man was calling me to come.” Aishia thought for a moment and then continued. “I later realized that was Jesus.” Then a woman named Behi spoke. “When I began reading the Bible, I had trouble understanding it. Then I saw Jesus in a dream and he told me to read the Gospels, because those books would be easier to understand.” The visitor heard many such stories that day. All of these people had once been Shi’ite Muslims.
The above hypothetical story is typical of what’s happening all over Iran. God is using dreams to reveal Himself to people searching for spiritual truth and righteousness. There are many people in Iran who have seen Jesus in their dreams. Many such people have become followers of Jesus Christ.
