Who Is The Man in White?
Across the 10/40 Window, there are surfacing testimonies of Muslims having dreams and visions of this man. In some cases, the man speaks to them. But in others, He brings nothing but silence and an overwhelming sense of peace. So who is the man in white? This phenomenon is the perfect conversation-starter for missionaries to share the the love of Jesus with people who may not have been open to it before! Can you believe it? It’s as simple as going up to someone and saying, “Have you ever heard of the man in white?” Even if they find themselves clueless, the question is enough to make them wonder.
In short, and really the only answer you need, the man in white is Jesus. You probably could have guessed! The man in white reveals himself in Matthew 17:1-2 (ESV), “¹ And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and James, and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain by themselves.² And he was transfigured before them, and his face shone like the sun, and his clothes became white as light.” But, what may surprise you is that the man in white, Himself, is bringing Muslims to the Gospel.
The Power of Testimony
In Acts 4:33 (ESV) the Bible says, “³³ And with great power the apostles were giving their testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all.” As Christians, we acknowledge that there is power in our personal stories of how we came to know the Lord. Our current outreach teams are experiencing this first hand! Through combining power of Jesus and the power of their testimony, they helped two men discover Jesus!
“A few days ago, my team went to a coffee shop to write encouraging letters to give to women that were highlighted to us. There were two women and a young man that invited us to sit with them! They were all Turkish, but have lived in London for years. So, they spoke English. Praise God! We got their WhatsApp and met with the younger guy at another coffee shop later.
We shared our testimonies with him and he shared his story with us. He even told us that he had dreams of “The Man in White.” He continued to explain that, he never saw the man’s face, but always saw him at a distance, or from the back. We told him “THAT WAS JESUS! And that he wants a relationship you! The reason He seems distant is because He wants you to come near to Him and seek His face.”
The man was blown away! He had so many questions and was curious to know more about Jesus. Of course, with excitement told him about Jesus’ love and pursuit of us. Eventually, the man ended up saying, “I want that. I want a relationship with Jesus.”
We asked if we could pray with him for salvation, but he wanted to do it in his own time, to make it his own relationship with Jesus. We respected that he wants that intimacy. He said he would message us when he received Jesus, so we could celebrate with him!”
This story is amazing on it’s own, but it doesn’t stop there…
“The church that we are attending has a young adult group that meets every Friday night, and the Lord has been moving in incredible ways. As we were sharing a testimony about the person who was having dreams about the Man In White (see above), a newcomer shared how he has been having dreams of a voice speaking to him. The voice was saying things like, “everything is going to be alright,” and “I’m going to fix this.” We got to pray for him and tell him Jesus was speaking to him! This made him incredibly happy. He had to leave, but before he did, we were able to pray for him.”
The Power of Prayer
Testimony isn’t the only thing that has power! In John 14:13-14 (ESV) it says, “¹³ Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. ¹⁴ If you ask me anything, in my name, I will do it.” There’s power in our prayer! YWAM Redding wants to invite you in praying for:
- The millions who have already encountered Jesus through dreams!
- More dreams and visions of ‘the man in white’ across the world, especially in the 10/40 Window.
- Our current and future outreach teams.
- Our current and future students.
