LISTEN NOW! Or WATCH FULL PROGRAM! The world watched as brutal acts of savagery and evil were routinely carried out under the flag of ISIS and Radical Islam throughout the Middle East and the United States. Can you imagine someone being a part of that and coming to Jesus Christ? This is the very reality that happened in one woman’s life.
As she shares, her youth was troubled with anger and pain. “I was hurting a lot, and I hurt people because of it. I tried to kill myself three times.” She wanted to go to Syria. “I hated people who weren’t Muslim”. She was strongly drawn to acts of death and murder. “I loved to see people dying. I loved to see them bleeding. I would see videos of decapitation and loved it.”
In her zeal to prove Christians that they were wrong, she began reading the Bible. She soon found out that she was the one that was wrong. “The Grace of Jesus Christ started to touch me. I was reading things, like ‘pray for your enemies.’” It was through this journey that she gave her life to Jesus Christ. Her family responded by ignoring her. “This is where persecution started. They didn’t talk to me. They stopped talking to me.” Because of this, she would simply remain in her room and read the Bible, for months. She knew that she was not alone, but that Holy Spirit was with her. After being rejected by her family, she knows that she has been brought into a greater family, the Body of Christ all throughout the world.
After giving her life to Jesus, she wanted to be baptized and receive Holy Spirit. In the midst of going after God, satan tried to stop her. God prevailed, and she was delivered. The power of God consumed her life. “After the baptism, I felt like a heavy weight completely disappeared, and I was so excited to go and make disciples. All my convictions in Christ started to be alive in me. I started to want to talk about Jesus to everyone, even to the people who led me to terrorism.” She continues to share her desire to share the Gospel with Muslims. “I really want Muslims to come to the truth and really know Jesus, because He loves them, no matter what they did, no matter what they said.”
She speaks directly to all of those who are the position that she was when she was pursuing death and desiring to be a part of terrorism. “I know it might seem crazy what I am saying. But, I’ve been where you are, and I assure you, this isn’t the truth. Islam is not the truth…I assure you, please, look for God with all your heart, and you will find Him.” Knowing the difference between Islam and Christianity, she describes how to know the difference between those who are following Islam. “I’m sure you don’t have a personal relationship with God because maybe you are following rules. But with God, it’s an adventure.”
Maybe this is you. You’ve been serving religion. You’ve heard about Jesus but never began a relationship with Him. Jesus is perfect theology. You can give your life to Jesus Christ today. Religion keeps people away from the knowledge of God. Jesus Christ brings people to the Father. How are you impacted by this powerful testimony? Are you in the same position, serving Islam? We want to hear from you. See the full story of this powerful testimony and how the power of God radically transformed her life, and so much more.
