Sh Br 40: History Speaks

Shiite Muslims – a people God is pursuing to be Jesus’ Bride

Jesus said, "Yes, everything written about me by the prophets will come true." Luke 22:37 NLT

In a recent visit, I met with Hassan, a young leader in a Shiite community.

He asked me the question, "What is the difference between the Passover and Easter?"

In the discussion that followed, I was able to share the story of the Passover from the Old Testament and tie it to the events of the last week of Jesus' ministry before his death. Our discussion continued for over an hour as questions were asked and answers were given.

As our time together came to a close, Hassan said, "I never knew that Isa al-Messih's (Jesus the Messiah) execution had to be rushed, so it would happen before sunset in order to avoid breaking Jewish law."

Hassan went on to tell me, "I was not aware of the connection between the events that took place in the Old Testament and how they spoke of Isa's life and death!"

The Shiite community is steeped in tradition and the events of history.

They have their own stories that tie their past to the present and help them make sense of current events, and enable them to explain their faith and beliefs.

Due to their understanding of the importance of tying the past to the present, many Shiites are eager to know how Isa al-Messih fits into the whole picture of Jewish, Christian and Islamic beliefs. Thank God that history speaks so that more Shiites can understand and follow Jesus!

Friend of His Shiite Bride, pray that Hassan, his family, and other Shiite families who are seeking ways to connect the dots of history will clearly see that Isa al-Messih is the center of history, worthy of their complete allegiance and their total worship and devotion at this very present time in history.
