“Seek ye the LORD while He may be found, call ye upon Him while He is near. 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.” – Isaiah 55:6-7
This is a story of a man who, by the grace of God alone, converted from Islam to Christianity. To God alone be the glory!
(Description from YouTube)
Nabeel Qureshi (April 13, 1983 – September 16, 2017) was a Pakistani-American Christian apologist, author, speaker, and convert from the Ahmadiyya movement of Islam. Ahmadi Muslims worldwide are estimated to be around 10-20 million. The Ahmadiyya’s beliefs are more closely related to those of the Sunni Muslims than the Shi’a Muslims. The Ahmadis are guided by the Five Pillars of Islam and believe in the 6 Articles of Faith. They also accept the Quran as their holy book and pray five times a day while facing the Kaaba. Ahmadis practice Sunnah and accept the Authority of the Hadiths. However, their distinguishing characteristic is their belief in Mizra as the Promised Messiah and redeemer as was promised by the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. Mizra’s aim was to propagate Islam throughout the world through peaceful means and to revive the forgotten Islamic values such as peace, sympathy, and forgiveness.
The 34-year-old Nabeel was an itinerant speaker with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM). This interview was recorded in February 2014 with Canadian Pastor Robbie Symons.

We’re getting a lot of prayer requests this weekend. Well, prayer is one of our purposes here.
Please, everybody, join in prayer for Joshua’s grandmother and aunt in Japan, who have heard the Gospel but not as yet been called: Father in Heaven, open their hearts that they may hear. We want our loved ones with us in your kingdom; we want them all to know the joy of Jesus Christ Our Lord, that they may be saved by him. We all have people that we love who have not yet come to Jesus. Bring them, O Lord our God: in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Requested by Erlene–I am the God that Healeth Thee, by Don Moen.
We cannot count the people who were healed by Our Savior Jesus Christ, healed of every conceivable disease, while He was present in the flesh, on earth: and those healings were the evidence that God Himself had sent Him. They bore witness that He was the Son of God.
God has promised that when He restores His creation, in the fullness of time, sin and death will be cast out. There will be no need for any more healings, because we will all be whole, forever.
But in the meantime, all healing still comes from Him and we are instructed to pray for our loved ones, or for ourselves, when we need healing. God knows that we are weak; but He is strong. We pray in hope.
The Passover is finished. It’s the day after the Sabbath, very, very early in the morning. Jerusalem is quiet, seeming almost eerily quiet after all the recent uproar.
Mary, from the town of Magdala, has followed Jesus Christ everywhere. She has seen him crucified, taken down, dead, from the cross, and placed in a tomb. She is numb with grief. Almost automatically, she proceeds to the tomb–donated by Joseph of Arimathea–to minister to Jesus’ body. That work could not have been done yesterday, on the Sabbath. There are wounds to wash, spices to apply.The Bible says two other women came with her to do this.
Try to imagine this: the Sanhedrin put a guard at the tomb, claiming they didn’t want Jesus’ followers to steal the body and then claim He was risen. But when Mary and the others arrive, in the grey dawn, the…
This is Christ Pantokrator, “Christ the Ruler of All,” as portrayed in an ancient church in Sicily. Today on Easter Sunday we celebrate His resurrection from the dead.
Or Lord our God, and Father of All: grant this Easter day of 2019 power to work all throughout the year, every day, to draw our hearts to Jesus Christ–by whose blood we are saved, by whose wounds we are healed; Jesus Christ, our rightful King and only Savior.
Do as thou has said, O Lord! Make His enemies His footstool, put all things under Him, make all things new and wash away all tears: we pray for the restitution of all things, under the Lordship of Jesus Christ the King of kings. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
