Are we living in earth’s last days?
The prophet Joel said of the last days, “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days” (Joel 2:28, 29).
I believe that we are, in fact, living in the last days. Why? Because this prophecy is being fulfilled right now all over the world, especially among Muslims. Many of them are faithful followers of Islam, and almost none of them have any prior knowledge of the Bible or of Jesus Christ (Isa Al-Masih). Their dreams typically feature one or more of three thematic elements: a Man in white (often showing scarred hands) calls for them to follow Him, reveals biblical passages to them, and says, “I am coming soon.”
This emerging dream phenomenon has been growing quickly. It is now estimated that up to 80 percent of recent converts from Islam began their faith journey after a dream or vision of Jesus Christ.
Through our Dream Project website, AFM is connecting with Muslim-background people who have experienced dreams or visions of Christ, and we are encouraging them to read His Word and follow His leading.
On the Dream Project website, visitors are encouraged to share their dreams. Here is a sampling from just the last few days, as of this writing:
Jibran (November 26, 2020)
“In my dream a man in white was telling me to get ready because the day of judgment is almost here. He was sitting on a throne surrounded by angels. He asked me to share his soon coming with my family and relatives. He gave me a cross, saying, ‘Go and find more.’ I woke up puzzled and full of questions, but I was so happy and felt his love for me. What shall I do? I am afraid to share anything because I am a Muslim. How can I tell others?”
Mahid (November 28, 2020)
“I had a dream of three men. Light was coming from the man in the middle. He said to me, ‘I am the light of the world. I came before to the world but was rejected. You should believe in me and share your faith. Become a light to the world.’ I asked him, ‘How can I do this?’ He gave me a book and told me to read it and believe in it. Then I saw that there were marks on his hands. He said, ‘I am real, and I care about you.’ Then I woke up. I was shaking but so happy and filled with joy and peace.
“I am a Muslim who lost faith. I started asking Allah to show Himself to me. I left my country because of war. I am in a refugee camp now.”
Abram (November 29, 2020)
“I had a dream. I saw a man sitting on a throne. There were many angels worshiping him, singing, ‘You are worthy to have all the glory.’ Then the man looked at me. He smiled and said, ‘Do you believe in me? I am the beginning and the end. I love you very much.’ Then I knelt and worshipped him. He touched my head, and I saw a scar in his hand. Then I woke up. Please, can you help me understand this dream? Thank you.”
Nabeel (November 30, 2020)
“As-salamu alaykum. I had a dream last night. In my dream I was walking and came to a crossroads. I didn’t know where to go. Then a man in a white robe appeared. ‘Follow me,’ he said, ‘I will lead you to the straight path. I am the way, truth and life.’ I followed him. The road was bright and clear. He was reading me some things I have never heard before about loving enemies, being humble, and being salt and light. I was so happy in his company, I didn’t want to leave him. At the end of the road I saw a huge, beautiful city. I wanted to be there. He handed me a book with a cross on it. ‘Read it, and it will lead you to me and to that city.’ Then I woke up. I know that Isa Al-Masih appeared to me. I can’t doubt that. Can you help me?”
Anas (December 1, 2020)
“In my dream a man in white was covered with bright light. He handed me a book and told me, ‘Read it to prepare for the judgment day.’ I asked him, ‘Who are you?’ He told me, ‘Read the book. In it you will learn of me.’ I opened the book, and the first thing I saw was, ‘In the beginning was the word.’ Then I woke up.
“I know that Isa Al-Masih is the Word of Allah. Did I see Him? Please, can you help me?”
Emir (December 1, 2020)
“I had a dream of a man in white clothing shining with light. He handed me a beautiful book with Arabic words on the cover. He told me to read it carefully, because it was important for my life and future. ‘The day of judgment is near. I am coming soon. You need to be prepared and help others, too,’ he said. I opened it and read, ‘Fear Allah and give him glory. The day of judgment is near. Worship the creator of all things.’ Then I woke up. I was so happy. I will not forget these words. What is the meaning of this dream?”
Mehran (December 2, 2020)
“In my dream I saw a man dressed in bright white. He was smiling. I saw around him a crowd of angels singing, ‘You are worthy, worthy of our worship, you are the king of kings and lord of lords.’ I felt peace and joy. I didn’t want to leave his presence. Then one of the angels said, ‘Be ready. He is coming soon to judge the earth.’ Then I woke up. What does my dream mean? Did I see Allah? Thank you.”
Hammad (December 3, 2020)
“In my dream I saw a man wearing white. He showed me a website. ‘This will help you understand your dream,’ he said. Then in my dream I was walking on a path and stopped at a crossroad. One of the paths was narrow, and the other one was wide. Many people were going on the wide one. ‘Which path should I take?’ I asked the man. He told me, ‘Search. I have given you the answer.’ Then I woke up. I didn’t take this dream very seriously at first. Then I had the same dream several more times. I could not stop thinking about it. The man in my dreams has authority, and I feel peace in his presence. So I started seeking answers, but none that I found were right. Then one day I saw your website. It was the same one the man in white showed me in the dream. I could hardly believe it. I have been reading, and now I know which way I should follow.”
God is revealing Himself through dreams and visions, even directing seeking Muslims straight to our Dream Project website!
