Kenya: Muslim Cleric Converts To Christianity After Dream, “I Saw Jesus Very Clearly Telling Me To Follow Him”
Hat tip to Jihad Watch for the link. “Jesus appeared saying ‘It’s Me, follow Me. When you follow me you will pay a price, there will be persecution in your life.'” If the Lord can change Saul, He can change anybody. Notice how the teachings this former Muslim cleric says he received as a child parallel a recent article I wrote explaining how the prophetic texts of Revelation foretold Islamic teachings.

Psalm 70:4, “Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; And let those who love Your salvation say continually, ‘Let God be magnified!’”

By Lauren Gunias, WorldWatch Monitor – “U.S. President Barack Obama visited Kenya and Ethiopia 24-28 July, partly to discuss regional security. In Kenya especially, Christians have been targeted by the violent al-Qaeda affiliate al-Shabaab.
In the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa on 28 July, making an American president’s first speech to the African Union, Obama said ‘Many of these groups claim the banner of religion, but hundreds of millions of African Muslims know that Islam means peace.’
For millions of Muslims, that may be true. For one Muslim cleric, it was not. This is his story.
Tofik grew up in Islamic schools and became an imam in his East African village. Several deeply personal revelations brought him to Christianity, at the risk of his life. In the Horn of Africa as in some other Islamic societies, a former Muslim who becomes Christian is at great risk. World Watch Monitor therefore is not using Tofik’s actual name, and in the following videos, his face is obscured…
Tofik trained to become an imam for 24 years at an Islamic madrasa school in Africa.
‘In school I only learned about Islam,’ he said. ‘Parts of our teaching were about destroying Christianity. So we did what we learned, by attacking Christians once we finished our training.’
He said he was taught that Christians are bad people, and that he and the other students were encouraged to steal from and kill non-Muslims.
‘We beat them, attacked the church and burnt their Bibles’
‘Our teachers would tell us every time there was a new church in town and we were told to go and attack the people and destroy the church. So that’s what we did,’ Tofik said…
Tofik was one of 14 students selected by the local mosque to be trained in Saudi Arabia for further Islamic studies…
Why did he become Christian? ‘There was an incident in 2002 where I had a vision from the Lord early in the morning around 3 a.m.,’ he said. ‘In the vision I saw Jesus very clearly telling me to follow him.’
‘My wife asked me what happened in my dream, because I woke up very startled, and when I explained it to her she was scared and said, ‘We are going to be infidels, so we need to pray.’’
He told her which Quranic verses Jesus told him to read in his dream, and said they all specifically instruct the reader to follow and believe in Jesus.
Going back to sleep, Tofik said he immediately he had another vision of Jesus.
‘Jesus appeared saying ‘It’s Me, follow Me. When you follow me you will pay a price, there will be persecution in your life, but in the end you will be victorious. I am with you.’'” Read more.

Recommended: How Revelation’s Predictive Biblical Prophecy Foresaw Islamic Teachings – “Given the context of Revelation and all that takes place against the people of God, the ‘waters’ turning ‘bitter’ [of Revelation 8] is likely referring to the ‘peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues’ that are turned ‘angry, indignant, antagonistic, hostile’ by the ‘star’ and their subsequent treatment of God’s people… Could this ‘star’ falling from heaven to earth be a reference to a deceptive, demonic force? Of particular interest is the fact that the name of the ‘star’ figuratively means ‘calamity.’ Pick up virtually any thesaurus and ‘calamity’ is synonymous with ‘affliction’ and ‘distress.’ Coincidentally, or perhaps it’s no coincidence at all, one of the 99 names of Allah, Islam’s ‘all-powerful’ deity, is Ad-Darr which means ‘The Afflicter’ or ‘The Distressor’ … Satan must now set up for himself a people who are conformed to his own image in order to achieve the goal of destroying the elect of God [per Revelation 12:17]. And the key to achieving that goal? Islam.” Read more.
