Son of Hamas Leader comes to Christ

How stunning is that? At the end of this piece are links to articles and a short video of the young man. This news has hit my heart BIG time. To think that the Living God has reached down and claimed this mans heart as his own, called him out of the radical life he knew, away from everything his life was based upon, his beliefs, family and society, placing his life in direct opposition and in jeopardy from the very people he comes from. Yet when he came to Christ, he was grafted in, old things are passed away, behold all things become new. He believes that his conversion can lead millions out of Islam to Christ! And so do I.

God used a place that usually hardens a soul, to soften it and give him eyes to see. Because of the brutality of his own uncle, not to his own life, but to the lives of others, while in prison, he had a crisis of faith. He understands and admits that the goal of Islam on the WHOLE is the destruction of Israel, which is why peace between Israel and any Islamic nation will not occur. As he stated, it is not about one crazy person, it is about a whole ideology. That ideology is ingrained throughout family, schooling and society, it is not compartmentalized, like too many already do with God in their lives.

He was invited to read the bible, the reading that changed him?  Love your enemies. He had never heard of such a thing! He understands that you can speak truth and still love. He clearly shows that in this interview. I have heard it said and I agree, that God's love isnt a pampering love, it is perfecting love. It knows the truth and speaks it, even if it hurts. Love knows the hurt part resides only on the side where rebellion or pride reside.

He ended up re-studying the Koran in light of new perspectives and God showed him the truth. He states that Islam is the most bipolar religion on earth, expressing the inconsistencies in the Koran and how they would use it to validate the jihad and violence. He boldly states that Islam is a drug, the Koran is not the word of God, powerful words that even evoke fear in my own heart for him, as I write this. Strange reaction for sure, but I am stunned at this young man's bravery. (and it shames me as I think about my own battle to step out) Surely, the holy spirit is empowering him. I watch him and my soul burns, part of me wants to be him, knowing that what he has to say has the power to call millions of the lost from the grasp of satan's snare. The other part, afraid for him and praying for his protection, knowing that God is in control of his precious life.

As I see the video of baptismal, I weep with joy over his soul and the hope that his coming to saving knowledge of Christ will bring a whole lost religion out of darkness and to Christ, in a way none have, but God thought about. What a calling, what a burden this young man has been given...I think of Esther, "how do you know that you are not here for such a time as this?"

This man has risked his life for Christ. Let's pray for his protection and that salvation reaches and call millions out of the house of Islam.
