16 Million Muslim Conversions to Christ Since 1960
Record Numbers of Muslims Are Coming to Christ
New research suggests a record number of Muslims have given their life to Christ since 1960, with some estimates reaching 16 milliom worldwide today. The explosive growth of Chrisitianity amongst Muslims has been a growing trend but perhaps came into mainstream culture attention when this past April, America's first Muslim Miss USA converted to Christianity.
According to some reports, Jesus is appearing to certain Muslims in dreams and visions where the Bible is not available or where there are few Christians. In the United States alone an estimated 470,000 Muslims have converted to Christianity according to Breakpoint contributor Eric Metaxas.
Heidi Baker of IRIS Ministries in Mozambique, Africa told CBN, "It's probably the only place in the world where they are coming so quickly,” she said. “Many people are having dreams. They see Jesus appear to them. Probably half our pastors were leaders, imams in Moslem mosques. They were leaders in these mosques, now they're pastors."
Christine Darg who wrote a book titled, The Jesus Visions: Signs and Wonders in the Muslim World where she chronicles the work of God in the Middle East. She believes God's work amongst God's end-time purpose to bring all nations to himself and the fulfillment of God's promise to pour out his Spirit on all flesh. That includes Muslims. "They are receiving visitations from the Lord himself, in dreams and in visions."
