Former Muslim Testimonies
Many Muslims all around the world are encountering the truth. The truth is Jesus Christ Himself. Jesus said in John 14:6, " I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
God has been revealing Himself to Muslims, in as extraordinary way. Because His desires is that all are saved.
God has been seeeking men since the falll of humankind. When Adam and Eve sinned, they ran to hide themselves. Feeling ashamed and guilty from disobeying God. However, God comes in the Garden, and calls them out, " Where are you? "
Sin did separete men from God. And as consequence, Adam and Eve were cursed, and had to leave the Garden. Losing the intimate relationship with the Creator.
However, it was not just Adam and Eve that were cursed, but also the serpent. When God announced the punishment to Satan for misleading Adam and Eve, He said;
" And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers, he wil crush your head, and you will strike his heel." ( Genesis 3:15)
The one that crushed the serpent's head, is Jesus Christ. The Son, and God Himself. " For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is giving; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.' ( Isaiah 9:6)
God's plan to reestablish an intimate, loving relationship of men with Him, is incredible! Someone who was to be born of a woman, would overcome Satan, and destroy his power! In his strugle, the victorious one would have to endure temporary evil inflicted upon him.
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all… he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was stricken. He was assigned a grave with the wicked and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life a guilt offering, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand. After the suffering of his soul, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge, my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. Therefore, I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.” (Isaiah 53:5-12)
In the Garden, God sacrificed an animal to cover the shame of Adam and Eve. The same thing Jesus did on the cross. To cover our shame and shameful act, to cover our sins and consequences of sin, to cover our take, our guilt, and our sinful nature from us, He died on the cross. He shed His precious blood on the cruel cross for me and you, so we may never be in shame and sin.
Yes, Adam and Eve sinned and brought death and curse in this world, but Jesus came and died on the cross. He shed His precious blood to save us from eternal death, tears, sorrow, pain and curse. He came down to give us eternal life. We can receive this wonderful life, which Adam and Eve had in the Garden of Eden- a life full of blessings, a life full of peace and joy. If you have not yet received this life, today is the day of salvation. Invite Jesus into your life, and you will never be the same again!
I pray that many more Muslims find this truth and have eternal life in heaven.
God Bless You!
