We have said this many times, but often muslims are more shocked when God reveals a problem that they have through a word of knowledge than when they actually get healed. In this case, my friend has asked more than once how I “knew” something. It is again an opportunity to explain how God speaks and reveals, something Islam rejects for today.
First of all I was able to pray for my Gulf Arab muslim friend’s wrist who had told me all about a visit to the doctor for a very painful wrist; she couldn’t lift anything. After prayer in Jesus’ Name, she felt something (her description) “swirling all around my arm and wrist”. I told her that was God showing her that He was healing her arm. She told me the pain left and it was good. I will be following up in a couple of days to see how it is now some days later.
A while later as we were talking I got a strong word of knowledge for a problem on the right side of the jaw and asked my friend if she had a particular problem in that specific area and she replies in a shocked manner, “Yes” and then turns to her daughter and asks, “How does she know?”. Shocked more about the revelation than anything else. This is not the first time I’ve gotten words of knowledge for her and other female members of their family. It is just so “outside the box” that God would speak today to someone that she acted as if it was the very first time I had done it. Of course I then prayed for her jaw. She told me it was also good after prayer but was still so stunned by the revelation that she didn’t seem too focused on the result. I will be following up with her about the jaw as well.
All of this enables me to speak many things about the Kingdom with this muslim family. They are experiencing God’s power in Jesus’ Name. May they receive special revelation (dreams and visions) to confirm the word that they are both hearing verbally from me and experiencing (through words of knowledge, healings) as the Kingdom comes!
