HIS Ways are Not Our Ways: Jesus Appeared to a Muslim Woman, and Answered her Request for Cigarettes—Later He brought Her a Miraculous Healing

Mark Ellis : Jun 19, 2017 : God Reports

It seems Jesus—in ways that often surprised and confounded His observers—met Nelly where she was, and then began to reveal more and more of Himself to her.

Knowing her time was short, Nelly visited two Christian neighbors affiliated with Pioneers and asked them to visit her husband and young son after she died.

The Christian workers encouraged Nelly to pray to Jesus and ask Him for help.

Due to her Muslim background, Nelly had never prayed to Jesus. But the nature of her illness prevented her from performing her daily Muslim prayer rituals. So she went home and for the first time in her life and prayed to Jesus, according to the account by Pioneers.

It seems Jesus—in ways that often surprised and confounded His observers—met Nelly where she was, and then began to reveal more and more of Himself to her.

Nelly had seen "The JESUS Film" and other Christian movies on satellite TV. "She is illiterate and was therefore unable to gain knowledge of Jesus through the Bible," the Christian workers explained in the Pioneers account. (Photo: Public Doman/via Pixabay)

In the months that followed, Jesus continued to visit Nelly. "She said that she was not sleeping or dreaming, but that Jesus was there physically and spoke to her, encouraged her, consoled her. She said that once Jesus entered through the balcony door, spoke with her, and left through the front door."

Her husband heard the door open and shut but never saw Jesus himself.
