How do Christians experience Jesus Christ as Savior?

Christian faith is based on the real life of mankind and many people have experienced Jesus Christ as Savior in our modern society.

1. Linda Kumba Isatu Ngaujah experienced resurrection



Linda Kumba Isatu Ngaujah died in February 2013 in Sierra Leone, Africa. She was taken to Heaven and Hell to experience some amazing facts. She didn’t believe in any revelation, but her new experiences removed all false beliefs when she experienced hellfire and the demons. However, Jesus Christ saved her life and she came back to our world with specific messages about presidents and pop stars, including Muammar Gaddafi and Whitney Houston. Her testimony that she experienced Jesus Christ as her Savior has shaken Western Africa.


2. Fatuma Shubisa raised from the dead



Fatuma lives in the little village of Alelu with her husband in rural Ethiopia and has 9 children. She grew up Muslim but had converted to Christianity. She died as a Christian. She says after she died, she felt herself being drawn to heaven. She goes on to describe the glories of heaven along with the people she saw. A missionary named Warsa Buta was walking nearby. God told Warsa after his salvation: “I will raise the dead through you.” He prayed for Fatuma: “Fatuma, rise in the name of Jesus”. Then, after more than 12 hours medical death, Fatuma sat up in the bed. Many people, including Muslims, were surprised and some said: “A Pentecostal man can call back a dead soul to a body? If this is real, then we all will become Christians.” And they were shouting and said: “Your God is a very powerful God. Now make us believe.” Fatuma considers her simple life a gift from God, because it was God himself who raised her from the dead.


3. Dr. Nasir Siddiki heared Jesus Christ



Nasir Siddiki was born in a Muslim family. In October 1987, he was almost death at the age of 34 in a hospital in Toronto, Canada. Then he experienced Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. He was a successful businessman with a property of more than one million dollar, but on his deathbed this meant nothing to him. When his doctors left him to die, Nasir said: "God, if you’re real, don’t let me die!" Jesus Christ showed that he is the Savior of Nasir. Nasir heard a voice: "I Am the God of the Christians. I Am the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob." Nasir was miraculously healed and served Jesus Christ as his Lord as Savior. Jesus, the God of the Christians, showed up in the hospital room of a dying Moslim and healed him. However, the greatest miracle Jesus Christ performed was the transformation that occurred in his heart and lifestyle. He became an international evangelist and has led thousands to the Savior Jesus Christ in Asia, South America, Europe and Africa [1].


4. Conclusion

In our modern society people experience Jesus Christ as Savior. However, it is not necessary to have experienced the resurrection of Jesus Christ to believe in Jesus Chris as Savior. Jesus told his disciples, who had experienced his resurrection: “blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20: 29). Christian faith is based upon facts in real life. The first followers of Jesus Christ saw heaven as the “native land” from which they have been exiled during their time on earth: “We regard Paradise as our native land … many of us await us there” [2].
