When we can t reach someone with the gospel, God may send a dream to light the way.
Missionaries who are reaching Muslims with the gospel have some unusual help: the Muslims own dreams. As many as one-third of Muslim converts to Christianity, according to one missions scholar quoted in Stan Guthrie s article, report having dreams of Christ and of angels. Why would God use dreams to convince Muslims of his truth? When does God speak through dreams? Certainly he did in the Bible, but what about in our time? In this study, we ll explore New Testament dreams and visions since Pentecost.
