SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA (ANS – May 2, 2017) — Nabil* and his family were refugees and had recently settled in a small apartment that happened to be near a Christian named Greg. Nabil found work at the lowest wrung of the income ladder, as a manual laborer.
But one day Nabil suffered a severe ankle injury that kept him off the job. Greg began visiting Nabil’s apartment regularly to help him rehabilitate, according to a report by Frontiers.
But after months of therapy and rest, Nabil’s ankle was still so swollen that he could only take a few tentative steps across the apartment. It seemed it would take several more months before he would be pain-free and able to return to his demanding physical work.
But one day Greg called Nabil and was surprised by an urgency in Nabil’s voice. “Greg, I need to see you immediately! Come over now and bring your Bible.”
When Greg entered the apartment Nabil didn’t even say hello. “A man in white came to me in a vision and told me to get a Bible,” he gushed.
Greg suddenly noticed his friend walking limp-free. “What’s happened to your ankle?” he asked.
“A man in white healed it,” Nabil said. A few nights earlier, this man in white appeared to him in a dream and led him into a beautiful garden like paradise. At the entrance to the garden, the man told him that he must read the Bible and that it would lead him to life, according to Frontiers.
