This detail above of the Lord’s mantle is from William Holman Hunt’s “The Light of the World,” and in the famous painting the Lord is holding a beautiful Middleastern lantern. The lantern also happens to be the symbol of the Muslim Ramadan holiday.
During the Muslim month of fasting, Christine Darg brings a message of hope and discernment from Cairo in a timely teaching video. Every intercessor for the Muslim world will benefit from watching this.
Because Jesus IS the Light of the World.
Christine Darg says, “The Lord is visiting the Muslim world by night through the Word of God, visions, dreams, Christian broadcasts. He is knocking on the doors of everybody’s hearts but especially the Muslim world by night.”
Let us carry the Lord’s light into dark places this month and always.
This year Ramadan begins Saturday, May 27, 2017 and ends Sunday, June 25, 2017.
As Christine says in her book, “Miracles Among Muslims: The Jesus Vision,” please pray for Muslims to experience dreams and visions about Jesus, especially on the Night of Power during Ramadan. Here also is a link to 30 Days of Prayer during Ramadan. Following are additional prayer points disseminated today by Intercessors for Israel concerning Ramadan:
- Abba, for those who take this month seriously as a way through fasting to draw nearer to their god, break into their lives and reveal to them the only True God Redeemer, the Lord Yeshua (Jeremiah 29:13).
- God, invade the lives of Islamic terrorists, and set them free to become Your children (John 8:36).
- Lord Yeshua, cause many of the children to ask very pointed questions about You (Matthew 19:13-14).
- Abba, give to Muslim women liberty through Your Son’s death and resurrection (Isaiah 61:1).
- Lord, forbid that the true Church compromise its beliefs so as not to offend Islam.
I have no greater joy than these things, to hear that my children walk in the truth.(3 John 1:4)
- May many Muslims be attracted to You through the lives of Your children (John 12:20-21; Acts 2:37).
In Holman Hunt’s painting, “The Light of the World,” Christ is shown in a garden at midnight, holding a lantern in His left hand. With His right hand He is knocking on a heavily paneled door. When the painting was unveiled, a critic remarked to the painter, “Mr. Hunt, the work is unfinished. There is no handle on the door.” “That,” Hunt answered, “is the door to the human heart. It can be opened only from the inside.”
“For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.”
