After about 7 years of being a trustworthy Muslim, I began rethinking Jesus’ position after studying extra about Islam, its deception, and lies.”
“I began trying again into my outdated books on Christian apologetics from a Bible school I attended and started studying the Bible.

I used to be finally launched to Abdu Murray who was with Embrace the Fact Worldwide, he was an Ex-Muslim turned Christian apologist.

He listened as to why I used to be now contemplating leaving Islam after being fanatical about it at one time.”
“In 2012, I ended up having a dream about Jesus and in it I used to be coated in his blood! I could not perceive why I had this dream but it surely was actually superb and I could not get it out of my thoughts. Jesus’ blood crammed the scene in my dream.

“The God of Heaven graciously heard their prayer and despatched a dream that satisfied me His blood was greater than enough to forgive me of my sins. Hallelujah!”
“Proper then, I knew in my coronary heart that Jesus was the Son of God. However leaving Islam was not straightforward.”
“Lastly, I absolutely surrendered every thing to Jesus a 12 months later in January of 2013 and was born once more! It was wonderful! Jesus by no means gave up on me.”
“In the present day, I’m blessed to have accomplished a grasp’s diploma in Christian research. How privileged I’m to serve Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I really love sharing the gospel and particularly with Muslims who’re in determined want of the forgiveness that solely the Cross of Christ can carry.”
Mike advised his story in a video known as “The Inescapable Love of Jesus.” His prayer is that it could encourage different Christians to succeed in out to Muslims.
Mike says, “If in case you have somebody in your loved ones or a pal who has left the religion and transformed to Islam, do not surrender on them. Hold praying. Hold loving them.

Do not surrender as a result of this can be a matter of life and dying.”
