Terrorist is Born Again


Isaiah 55 v 7: "Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon."

1 John 1 v 7: "But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin."


About a year ago I posted a link to a YouTube video on this blog which portrayed a very moving testimony of how a Hezbollah terrorist came to know Jesus and be born again. Since that time all links to this believer's videos have been blocked probably by other terrorists or any who think that true commitment comes by force, blackmail, intimidation or murder.

I want to recreate in words all I remember of that video as it touched my heart. It also upset some religious fanatics who were afraid of the power and anointing on our brother's sincere and humble experience.

His Muslim Grandfather and his Father knew that he had a special calling on his life of a religious nature and he had deep instruction in Islam. He loved Allah and the Prophet with all his heart.

To prove his love and commitment he joined Hezbollah, a terrorist organisation that does not recognize Israel's right to exist and will kidnap, kill and force all others to accept Islam as the only true religion.

He was eventually arrested in Malaysia for having 7 false passports in his possession, and thrown into prison. He spent his time in prayer and study of the Koran. After a time a sudden illness struck him down and he felt he was in the grip of death.

He sank down in his cell unable to cry out as he struggled against a dark force that enveloped him. He saw a light and felt a presence and heard the words "Call on Jesus, He will help you."

Without questioning it - he said it was like if someone throws you a rope when you are sinking in quicksand you do not examine what colour it is, you just grab it and hold on.

So he cried out "Jesus, help me!" Immediately the darkness left him and the struggle was over. He felt well and in his right mind. He did not become a believer but kept asking himself why Jesus would help a Muslim.

He decided to fast for two weeks and wait for Allah to enlighten him through reading the Koran constantly while fasting. He read it through completely every 3 days.

After two weeks of this he just felt empty and alone. He decided to reject Islam and be nothing at all. The moment he did this a bright light shone in his cell and he felt the presence of someone else in his cell.

He cried out, "Who are you?" Then he felt the weight of every sin upon him. So heavy was the sin upon him that he thought only death could release him. He felt a hand touch his shoulder and again cried, "Who are you?"

The answer came, "I am Jesus." Immediately the conviction of sin was gone and it was replaced by the deepest peace he had ever felt. He knew that Jesus was the true and living God who had forgiven his sins forever.

He felt so clean and filled with joy and gratitude.

He prayed for a Bible because he needed to know everything about his new life in Christ. The next morning someone went by and dropped a packet into his cell. It contained a Bible! So he knew God heard and answered prayer.

This happened in 1992 and he is still serving the Lord today with joy and gladness.

From Brenda: We give praise and thanks to Almighty God and His Son Jesus Christ for wonderful miracles and testimonies.

I was reminded of this one when the Malaysian Airlines MH370 went missing with 239 souls on board. If it has sadly disappeared into the ocean, who knows if Jesus did not appear in that plane as He did to our Hezbollah brother and gather them to Himself.

Prayer: Heavenly Father - Nothing is too difficult for You! You just need the opportunity to reach a searching heart. Lord God, even though this video was blocked, let the anointing on this dear brother touch everyone who needs to know that Jesus is alive! He came to save sinners and not condemn them. Heaven's doors are open through the blood Jesus shed on the Cross. Enter into your heavenly home. In Jesus' name. Amen.
