Not only are miracles still happening, they’re proliferating–just as the Bible said they would in the last days: Joel 2:28, quoted in Acts 2.
For instance, Muslims worldwide are being converted to Christianity through meeting Jesus in dreams and visions. I asked someone who works with Muslims, “Do you personally know any Muslims who have met Jesus in dreams?” The response: “Every M[uslim] I have led to faith. . . has had a dream or a vision along the way to believing, without exception.”
An Egyptian terrorist, a Nigerian herdsman, a Turkish alcoholic, a depressed Iranian man and a teenaged Indonesian girl tell their encounters with Jesus in MorethanDreams.org. Pakistani Bilquis Sheikh shares hers in her autobiography I Dared to Call Him Father. Sheikh’s story is among those summarized at the website Muslims Encountering YAHUSHUA In Unusual Dreams.
That site also says, “Karel Sanders, a missionary in South Africa, reported that among African Muslims, ’42 percent of the new believers come to Christ through visions, dreams, angelic appearances and hearing God’s voice.’ According to Dawn’s Friday Fax, a website that focuses on missionary reports, Arabic-speaking moderators explain supernatural experiences such as dreams, visions and healings through prayer to Jesus. ‘This is a hot topic in our region. People from all over the Middle East call us, telling how they were healed through prayer in Jesus’ name,’ they quote one missionary as saying. ‘Muslim listeners often call to tell us about dreams and visions of Jesus, wanting to know what that means for them.'”

Our friend Dr. Sassan Rostani is an Iranian raised in Tehran by nominal Muslims. He came to Los Angeles when he was 21 and studied to be a pathologist.
Sassan faced his own mortality when his father and best friend, both back in Iran, died. Ironically he was on rotation in a morgue during this time. He started waking terrified out of nightmares in which he was running through a dark forest with wolves snapping at his heels. He was afraid to fall asleep.
After weeks of this, he cried out to God to forgive him for whatever he was doing that was contributing to the nightmares. He fell into an exhausted sleep and was again in darkness and at the mercy of the wolves when he saw ahead of him a brilliant light and in it a man wearing a white robe. The forest and wolves disappeared as the man told him, “My son, your sins are forgiven.” Sassan knew the nightmares would never return and he slid into a peaceful sleep.
The next day he Googled “man in white” along with “Son, your sins are forgiven.” He found thousands of sites–all referring to Jesus Christ. At his request, a fellow pathologist, Jim Baker of Long Beach, gave him a Bible and took him to church, where he learned more about his Savior and gave his life to Him.
