This makes me cry and shout praises to Jesus, all at the same time. Jesus is the coolest, most glorious One in all the world. Let Him be continually glorified by your testimony.
I love this video. I’ve watched it numerous times, posted it to my Facebook, and passed it around to friends.
Me too… I love this video, I’ve watched it numerous times
This story just makes me want to go and help spread Gods word all around the world!
Your story made such an impact on me. I often pray to see Jesus, or an Angel. There you were, broken of heart and alone – as so many of us are in our daily life, and he came to you! How beautiful. You were able to show the love of God, and share the Gospel. Praise God – for his love, mercy, grace. He will bless you all your days!
The power of God is in this video….my heart just melted, and I wepted for Dan in his moment of crisis, and all I can say and see is LOVE !
The LOVE of Christ ! Dan was used by our Lord and Saviour.
You endured Dan. Thank your for your work in missions. You are on my prayer list now. Thank you for spreading the Gospel.
j’ai lu ton livre avec tellement de foi , de de ferveur que cela reveillé en moi le deire de sevir Dieu encore plus.je me retrouvait avec toi entrain d’essayer de comprendre quelle souffrance tu a enduré et de savoir que c’est pour notre seigneur je suis encore plus emue que le seigneur notre Dieu te benisse et que la gloire lui revienne.
Thank you for showing us a more excellent way, Dan (1 Cor 12:31). While I covet a personal visit from Christ Himself here on earth, I know someday I will have that gift in heaven. While in this earthly body, my greatest desire is Part 2 of your testimony, to be like Christ. For if I “have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.”
And praise God; this gift (the opportunity to sacrifice oneself for love of another) is a common gift, granted to all every day in varying degrees. However few see it as such. The gift is usually overlooked, misplaced, or mistaken for a curse.
So simple, this ‘let’s be friends, what’s your name?’, and yet there lies the miracle, there is the more excellent way. There we see God more clearly than any vision could reveal. People often wonder what Jesus looks like. Well, He’s right there in plain sight, in Part 2 of Dan’s testimony.
thank you Lord for showing me this video of you loving us so loud. Thank you for showing us how You love our enemy and that through us you want to approach touch them with your love. How often we fail the test. Make us like You so more can know you. Forgive us for our lack of faith.
On CBN you discribed the arrest of both you and your friend. Dan, what happened to your friend? What is his name. Is he OK? God Bless You!
I met him in Lebanon Beirut in year 2000 when I used to have an internetcafe but I didn’t know about his story in Iran till today , and since then I heard nothing from him or the group were with him . But all I can say hi is a very nice person and I got lots of respect for him . God bless him .
Tento traduzir algo,vejo que Deus te usou no irã,Deus continue usando você na pregação da Palavra.
Great! God works in His own ways!praise God!
“Now I will carry you “, that is what Jesus said to me also and far less noble circumstances than yours . I had greivious sin that the enemy still enjoys taunting me about. Jesus didnt appear as a light ,but who else would EVER EVER EVER say I will carry you ? NO ONE….EVER… No one ever cared for me like Jesus…theres no other friend as kind as HE..no one else can take this sin and darkness from me…Ohhh!!! HOW MUCH ! HE ! CARES ! for me…Praise YOU
Saw Dan today at Hope Fellowship church in Jaffrey Nh. Heard his testimony about being imprisoned in Iran, and it is at the top of my list of the most impressive thing I’ve ever heard first hand with my ears.
It was all I could do to retain my composure- I could relate through my own life’s difficulties.
A funny thing- I looked in the mirror before going in to the service in the men’s room- and noticed my shirt had a black mark across the bottom.. I thought- “I’m going to look like a slob”… when I got in, I heard this man preaching- that I’ve never heard- and his shirt was the same colors and stripes as mine! and I said ‘cool!’- became actually proud of this as each minute passed hearing this great man speak… as it ripped away my defenses.
I will never forget today’s sermon for the rest of my life.
Many years ago- around 1980 I too saw an exploding bright light which I knew at the time to be Jesus.. and He said to my heart He would be with me to the end.
I experienced involuntary rejoicing… for 10 seconds or so… hands clapped, and mouth said ‘Praise God’! over and over…. I had been in a terrible state of depression thinking I had blasphemed the Holy Ghost for at least a couple weeks.. The realization came that God was still with me- and at the same time I physically saw this explosion of light etc. ! I was not alone when this happened- It is kind of a longer story. It was up in the mountains of Yacolt Washington in a log home on Dole Valley Road while staying with the Matson family.
The Lord has not abandoned me though the last 30+ years have been more then good reason to do so. Instead, He is drawing me closer to Him- even through my many and sometimes terrible mistakes…
I am convinced The Lord and I will walk out of this life hand in hand- saved by Grace through Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
