Palestinian Pastor Recalls Personal Encounter with Jesus That Led Him to Repent of Hatred for Jews

Steve Warren

Bassam Adranly was born a Palestinian and grew up in the Greek Orthodox Christian tradition.

In a recent interview with Revive Live, he says he often criticized Jews. While in his 20s and attending a university in Tel Aviv, he turned to atheism.

In 1995, he says he had a personal encounter with Jesus Christ that turned his life around.

"Every night I was dreaming of Him, all night through," Adranly says. "Going with Him and His disciples everywhere. ... and all day through, I couldn't get His words out of my mind."

Adranly said at the time he had a hatred of Jews like many other Palestinians.

"I was wrestling with this and I knew it was wrong. So I gave myself to the Lord to change it," he told the television program.

Adranly said God touched his heart and his prejudice was gone.

Today, he is an Arab-Christian living in Israel and pastors a congregation in the city center of Jerusalem.

"The Lord showed me very clearly that nationality is not something I receive. It's not something that I just take from my old life," Adranly explained. "The Word of God in 2 Corinthians 5:17 says 'Who is in Christ is a new creation. Old things have passed away," and it includes our nationality. So we have to come to the Lord and ask to receive from him what he wants to teach (me) about my nationality, about my people."

Here's the thing all the so called personal encounters are never full on physical encounters. It's either a dream, an impression or a "vision" (more likely a sort of dream as well).

Why is an omnipotent God incapable of having full on physical contact with the people he supposedly loves? Why is everything left to be subjected to the highly distorting realm of dreams and impressions? I would never trust any person who comes and tells me he learnt how to fly a plane from a dream so why should I trust people who say they encountered the creator of the universe in a dream? And he gave them instructions for all of humanity in that dream? Really?

Then why did God give us bodies? Why did he make a place we can feel suffering, pain and death when he could just as easily left us as spirits to be worshipping him? Is your god so wicked?

Our God is not wicked.
God's plan was for man live forever on earth, to enjoy His creation, but man ruined everything through sin .

dreams and visions are some of the ways man receives messages God can also speak to your heart.

no flesh can see God and live.

Exodus 33:20
And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.

You've overwhelmed yourself with so much anger and hate, it's unhealthy for your peace of mind, body and soul .

Seek the peace that Jesus Christ is offering you free of charge, then you'll find rest for your soul...that is the ultimate gift .

LoL! Oh my days. Why would I be angry at a fairytale? I just want to show you the illogicality of your fairytale and you mistake it for for some kind of emotion. LMFAO! Actually it's more funny than anything else. It's like reading a story written by a JSS1 student, every time he doesn't know what to do, magic comes out. LMFAO!

Then he should appear in those ways. In fact one test I device for proving an omnipotent being is for him to simultaneously appear to every single person as a discrete being in all 7+billion cases.

But of course he is claimed to be a spirit so that you can conveniently move him close and far away when it suits you. An omnipotent God that cannot give clear and unequivocal evidence of his existence is not worth the trouble.

The researchers in Harvard university were once like you until they saw the stunning message clearly encoded in the human DNA(the blueprint of life) by God himself.

Professor Howard Storm from university of Michigan was so proud of his knowledge that he considered Christians as fools, until he had a horrible near death experience.

Can a clay say to it's potter; you did not make me?

Accept Jesus today and stop your rebellion for your own good and for the good of the children after you!!!

A man who stiffens his neck after much reproof will suddenly be broken beyond healing.

Since you you have decided to turn your back and not just your face from your creator, only the sound of terror will make you understand that which was said and written, that you have heard and read!!!

he is present where you are! you can seek him sincerely with all your heart, you will find him.

Matthew 7:7
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
