In a recent post at Adrian Warnock’s blog (Strange Fire: John MacArthur responds further to his critics) is MacArthur’s claim of it being untrue that a number of Muslims have had dreams about Jesus which ultimately have led them to recognizing Jesus as the one true son of God. How can someone categorically claim this has not (or is not) occurring?
That morning in November 1980, when being wonderfully saved, I found myself (unexpectedly, I may add) on my knees in the living-room weeping uncontrollably and crying out to God. Suddenly before my eyes I ‘saw’ Jesus on the Cross and understanding flooded my spirit and mind–an understanding that He was there for me! It tore my heart asunder, truly it did folks. For the first time in my life I understood that Jesus died for me. And that because of His sacrifice all my sins were forgiven. True repentance poured from my heart and lips that morning while kneeling in front of my sofa. True heart-wrenching sorrow that sin…my sin, had placed Him upon that Cross.
People like MacArthur would deny this experience. I know it in my heart, and it makes me sad.
