God loves the Muslims and He is speaking to many of them through dreams and visions to pray and receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Many have been saved from going to hell because they have renounced Islam and have prayed to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and have wonderful testimonies.

Muslims believe that Jesus Christ was a prophet.
Prophets tell the truth. Right? Right.
In the Bible in John 14:6 Jesus Christ said that He was “the way, the truth, and the life and there is no way to the Father, but through Him.”
So what do you think of that?…
Many Muslims who convert to Christianity supernaturally experience a miracle healing or hear a word of knowledge through a prophetic word or dream or vision that causes their heart to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. One of the most helpful things to know is how to answer the three questions that Muslims often ask:
Three Questions Muslims Ask:
1. Has the Bible Been Changed?
No, the Bible has not been changed. The reason why Muslims believe that the Bible was changed by Christians and Jews is because the Koran does not say what the Bible says and so one of them has to be wrong. Allah claims to have written both the Bible and the Koran and says, “He is the guardian of His own word including the Torah and the Gospel.” Allah and his Koran are not very good guardians if the Bible has been changed.
Answer: The Koran was supposed to be a confirmation of the Bible. So, how can the Koran confirm a book that has been changed? The Koran says in Sura 6:115: “Perfected are the Words of your Lord in truth and justice and none can change his Words.” The Koran states that the Bible is God’s Word. The Torah, the Gospels, the Psalms and the writings of the Prophets are recognized as Scripture. Sura 2:91 says: “It (the Koran) is the truth corroborating their (the Christians and Jews) own Scripture.” Sura 3:2–3 says: “He has revealed to you the Book (Koran) with the truth confirming the Scriptures that have come before it, for He (Allah) has already revealed the Torah and the Gospel for the guidance of men and the distinction between right and wrong.” Sura 21:105 says, “We wrote in the Psalms after the Torah was revealed.”
The Koran commands Muslims, Christians and Jews to read and obey the Bible.
Sura 5:58 “People of the Book, you will attain nothing until you observe the Torah and the Gospel and that which is revealed to you by your Lord.” This verse is a great way to witness to get them to read the Bible
- Why Does the Bible Say that Jesus Christ Was Crucified?
The Koran denies that He was crucified. Sura 4:157 “The Jews have said, “verily we have slain Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, the Apostle of Allah; yet they slew him not, neither did they crucify him, but he was represented by one in his likeness…They did not really kill him; but Allah took him up to himself.”
Answer: First of all, no one took the life of Jesus. He gave His life willingly to save man from sin. John 10:18 says, “No one takes it (my life) from Me, but I lay it down on my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again.” So the crucifixion did not just happen. It was prophesied for thousands of years. For e.g.: Isaiah 53: 3–7 prophesied it would happen and 1 Peter 1:10–11 says: “Concerning this salvation, the prophets…predicted the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow.” So Jesus knew that He would die for the sins of the world. Matthew 16:21 says: “Jesus began to explain to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things at the hands of the elders, chief priests and teachers of the Law and that He must be killed and on the third day be raised to life.” The sacrifice of blood is God’s way of paying for sin. Hebrews 9:22 “In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” God is the only one“good” enough to pay for men’s sins.
Matthew 1:22–23 says, “All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Emmanuel, which means, “God with us.” No good works will bring you into a right relationship with God. Only through praying to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior will you be saved from eternal damnation in hell. Jesus said in John 14:6 , “I Am the way, the truth and the life and there is no way to heaven, but through Me.”
- 3. Why Does the Bible Say Jesus is the Son of God?
Answer: First of all, God has no son in the sense of God having sex with Mary. It’s not what you think in that way. Why? Because God is a Spirit. Matt 1:18 says that Mary was found to be pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit. She was overshadowed by the Holy Spirit. When Jesus left heaven and humbled Himself to come to earth to be born and live as a human, He came to show us the Father and to shed His perfect sinless blood and die on the cross for our sins so that we could be reconciled to God. On earth, Jesus was submitted to His Father, so in this sense, it was a special relationship, similar to a “Father– Son” relationship. But Jesus is God just like God is God and the Holy Spirit is God.
The Almighty God is one God in three different personalities. For e.g.: ice, water and steam. God is three in One. When He was on earth, Jesus was fully God and fully man. The Bible Says that there is only ONE God:
In 1 Corinthians 8:5– 6 it says: “There is no God, but one. For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or on earth, yet for us, there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came.” The Bible says that Jesus is the Son of God because God said Jesus is His Son in Matthew 3:17: “And suddenly a voice came from heaven saying, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I Am well pleased.” God is one God in three different manifestations or personalities. Acts 10:38 demonstrates this trinity when it says: “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil.”
In Matthew 28:19 Jesus Christ affirmed the Trinity: “Make disciples baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Paul also emphasized the Trinity in 2 Corinthians 13:14:– “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all.”
Muslims See Allah as Judge, Not as a Loving Father
There are 99 names for Allah. Not one of them is “Father.” Not one of them is “Love.”
Deception: Muslims see Allah as a distant, capricious judge, not a loving Father who takes delight in His children. Allah of the Qur’an offers a master–slave relationship, while God of the Bible offers adoption into a Father–child relationship.
Truth to Say: When I became a Christian, God adopted me into His family, into the Kingdom of Light and so He is now my Heavenly Father. I call him Father. It says in Romans 8:15 (NIV) “The Spirit you received does not make you slaves so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by Him we cry, “Abba, Father.” ”
Six Differences between Jesus Christ and Muhammad that Can Help in Witnessing:
- Jesus Christ forgave sins. Muhammad did not forgive any sins.
- Jesus Christ is omniscient. He knows everything. Compared to that, Muhammad knows little.
- Jesus Christ did miracles and healed many people. Muhammad did not do any miracles nor did he heal anyone.
- Jesus Christ has all authority. Muhammad has temporal authority.
- Jesus rose from the dead. Muhammad just died.
- Jesus Christ claimed He was God. Muhammad claimed he was a prophet, a messenger of God.
Questions for Muslims to Think About:
- If the God of the Bible is the same as the god of the Koran, then how can my sins be forgiven so I can be reconciled to God? You know, there is no forgiveness of sins without the shedding of blood
- If I were a Muslim, how could I know for sure that I will end up in paradise or heaven? Is the only way to really know for sure is if I actually kill someone for Allah?
- If the God of the Bible is the same god of the Koran (Sura 29:46), why is the symbol for Islam a crescent moon and the symbol for Christianity is a cross? Did Muhammad die on the moon?
- Did Muhammad ever heal anyone or perform any miracles? Did he forgive anyone of his or her sins? Jesus did.
- What if I miss praying five times a day? Would I have to pray 10 times a day the next day?
- Many say that Muhammad was a prophet. Prophets in the Bible were holy. Many, like Jesus Christ, were not even married. Why did Muhammad have so many wives? (He had eleven).
- In the Exordium, it says, “Guide us in the straight path…” That reminds me of Isaiah 40:3: “Prepare the way of the Lord; make His beaten paths straight.” Do you think he was searching for Jesus Christ?
- Why does the Koran depict heaven as a place where sexual desires are fulfilled? Sura 55:54 says “therein are bashful virgins whom neither man nor Jinnee will have touched before.” But the Bible says in Revelation 4:8 that the angels in heaven surround the throne of God saying, “Holy, holy, holy!”
- Someone read in this book by Salman Rushdie that once there were actually some “satanic verses” in the Koran saying that his family could worship the three goddesses, the daughters of Allah, but these verses were taken out. Did you ever hear about that? Has the Koran been changed?
Five Pillars of Islam
1st Pillar Deception: The “Shahada” or profession of faith to which every Muslim must witness: “There is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is the messenger of God.”
Truth to Say: The Bible says in Acts 1:8 – “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses” (which are like messengers). Acts 4:33 says, “with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus.”
2nd Pillar Deception: The “Salah”– daily ritual prayer. Dedicated Muslims stop 5 times every day and repeat a total of 17 prayer rounds.
Truth to Say: In the Bible in Matthew 6:7 says: “and when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. You only pray five times a day, but in the Bible, it says in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 says to: “Pray without ceasing.” We Christians stay connected to God spirit to Spirit, through abiding inthe Lord, fellowshipping with His Spirit who is within us, like the Bible says in John 15:5: “I Am the Vine and you are the branches.”
3rd Pillar Deception: The Payment of Zakat A tax for the poor which is 2.5% of their income plus fasting one meal at Festival of Eid. Many Muslims seek to avoid this task.
Truth to Say: Christians tithe, which means they give 10% of their income to God. Malachi 3:10: says, “Bring all the tithes into the store house” (God’s church). Christians who tithe give 10% of their income to God, which is so much more than the 2 ½ percent that Muslims give to Allah or their god.
4th Pillar Deception: The “Sawn” of fasting in the month of Ramadan. There is no eating, smoking, or sex during daylight unless you are ill, traveling, nursing or pregnant. The purpose of the fast is to contribute to a mastery or world concerns and fosters compassion for the poor.
Truth to Say: Isaiah 58:6 says: “Is this not the fast that I have chosen: To loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free and that you break every yoke?’ Matt. 6: 16– 18 “moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you do not appear to be fasting, but pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.”
5th Pillar Deception: The “Haij” or pilgrimage. Once a year many Muslims travel to Mecca in remembrance of Abraham’s sacrifice of Ishmael (not Isaac). The journey is to be made by every Muslim at least once in his/her lifetime if he can afford it.
Truth to Say: Genesis 22:7–14 says that Abraham obeyed God and prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac, not Ishmael, before an Angel of the Lord stopped him. In Genesis 22: 9–14, Ishmael and Hagar were sent away. Muslims are making this pilgrimage or journey to remember something that is not even true. Sigh. At communion, when we partake of the bread and the wine, (symbolizing the body and blood of Jesus), we remember Him. Since the Lord dwells in our hearts, there is no better place to travel than to our local churches to worship Him.
If you want to ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart and be your Lord and Savior, then pray this prayer below:
Salvation Prayer: “Heavenly Father, I believe that Jesus Christ is much more than a prophet. I believe He is the Lord and the Savior who is the image of God who came to earth to show us who You, Heavenly Father, are really are like by performing many miracles and teaching about the Word of God and Your great love for us and for me. I believe in Jesus Christ who shed His perfect Holy blood on the cross which paid the price for my sins so that I could be forgiven and reconciled back to God again and spend eternity in heaven. I believe that Jesus really died. There was no imposter. On the 3rd day, I believe Jesus was also raised from the dead. He was on earth again for 40 days and it is documented that He showed himself to His disciples and to many people, and then He ascended back up to heaven. I believe He is now in heaven interceding for the saints. Therefore, I ask You, Jesus Christ, to forgive me for all of my sins. Forgive me for believing in Islam. I did not know the truth before, but now I do, so I renounce Islam. I repent for believing in Allah and Muhammad and Islam. Jesus, I believe now that You are God. You are the way, the truth, and the life and there is no way to heaven, but through You. I believe this, so I ask You Jesus Christ to now come into my heart and be My Lord and Savior. Now fill me with the Holy Spirit… I believe in the Trinity, the three in One God – Father, Son (Jesus) and Holy Spirit. I thank You, Holy Spirit, that you are also God and now You will never leave me nor forsake me because I believe and have received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. Thank You, Jesus, for shedding Your blood for me and thus, for saving me from hell and for giving me eternal life in heaven. Help me to study the Bible, to come to know You more and to have the courage to live for You and obey You, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.”
