Christian Girl Mutilated And Murdered By Muslims Visits Heaven, Is Miraculously Healed by Jesus And Brought Back to Life

UPDATE: This story was brought to my attention after it was posted by Andrew and I find no credibility to it. After investigating the source, it came originally from Bibles For Mideast operated by Paul Ciniraj. It wasn’t just this story, but I found that all of Ciniraj’s stories from India to be completely unverifiable. I checked every story by Ciniraj and found them all to be miraculous in nature. It is not that miracles do not happen, but there needs to be enough evidence (hospital names, locations, validations of parts of the incidents, other media sources etc …) to believe such claims. When we found others who were involved in investigating such stories (see here), in this example the police were involved and they denied any truth to Ciniraj’s claims. The ministry (Bible For Mideast) which claims to operate in sending bibles to the Muslim Middle East from India sounds unusual since the Middle East is not short of bibles. Bible shortages is past history during communism and many use such claims which work on western audience unfamiliar with the Middle East. There is no reliable evidence for Bibles For Mideast to be operating from India in the Middle East. Therefore, I regret this was posted on and we apologize for any inconvenience.

We wrote recently about how a Christian missionaries’ teenage daughter was kidnapped by Muslims and had her genitals mutilated and was in the hospital near death.

Well, she died at the hospital.

HOWEVER, in yet another miracle, the girl saw Jesus. He laid His hands on her, He healed her, and she came back from the dead:

A young Christian girl who was mutilated by Muslim radicals and deemed dead after spending six days in a coma was saved by Jesus and miraculously brought back to life after visiting heaven.

Lydia, the 14-year-old daughter of Yoonus, a Christian missionary with Bibles for Mideast in West Africa, was confirmed dead by doctors after she was brutally subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM) by Muslim radicals on her way home from school last week.

An hour after Lydia’s death, workers arrived to remove her lifeless body from her hospital room. However, while mourning beside her bed, the girl’s distraught family noticed movement under the sheet.

Suddenly, Lydia threw the sheet off of her body and stood from the bed: “Mummy, our Lord Jesus, our Lord and God Jesus Christ!” she exclaimed. “I’m alive! Jesus gave me my life back, and healed me! See, He’s just disappearing there on the clouds!” She pointed her finger towards the sky.

“My soul left my body and I was dead,” she continued. “Angels came to receive me to heaven. But Jesus appeared before me and said, ‘I cannot turn back from the prayers of my children. My eyes are upon my children and ears are open to their prayer. So I give you your life back, for the issues of death belong to me. You go, and be my witness.’ Then he put his face right against and right into mine. He breathed into my nostrils, and my soul went in. Then he moved his nail-scarred hands over my body and healed me completely!”

Lydia’s overjoyed mother embraced and kissed her repeatedly, praising the Lord Jesus as the rest of the family gathered round them sang. Amazed, the staff around the family simply had no idea what to do or say.

According to Bible for Mideast, a ministry that operates in the Middle East, Asia and Africa by giving away Bibles, evangelizing the lost and planting churches, Lydia was initially targeted by Muslim extremists for her faith, as she “boldly proclaimed Jesus as the Son of God” and “loved to speak of how He died on the cross of Calvary and rose from the dead to save everyone from sin and death.”

In its annual World Watch List of countries where it is most difficult to be a Christian, Open Doors USA notes that Islamic extremism remains the top driver of Christian persecution in several African countries.

In light of this, Bibles for Mideast is asking Christians around the world to continue to pray for Yoonus and his family, as they continue to face persecution from Muslims. (source)

As always, remember that nothing is impossible with God.

    It’s interesting because Jesus is appearing to Muslims in dreams and visions all over in Africa, the Middle East, and in Indonesia.

  • Grandmere

    Our God still works miracles! I pray our faith will increase.

    • RodK1975

      Amen, amen and amen, Grandmere…

      • Grandmere

        And our faith will be demonstrated by our corporate and individual works of mercy. As the old song says, “Trust and obey. For there is no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey, Love you my brother. XO to all.

        Thanks Walid , I always question even stories like this one.

    No matter what anyone thinks, Jesus Christ does this kind of thing a lot more often than people think… It is highly personal and extremely life changing… For one thing, Just one thing out of thousands, the receiver never again has doubt about the existence of God…

    Then comes the hard part…
    Living in a world that absolutely HATES you…

    Yep… The original pain and dying you were saved from will look like a walk in the park on a sunny summer day in 10 or 15 years as you look back…
    It only gets easier for a brief period after miracles such as this…
    Then it gets harder… Much harder… Much Much Much Much Much harder…
    Yet there is NO doubt now… Zero doubt… Nada… None…
    As a man I once knew used to say….
    “It’s All Good.”

    Please keep praying for this girl and all others like her…
    Now, more so than before believe it or not, she is in the sights of he who hates us all…
    It is not fun… Or pretty…

    This is nothing like the movies…
    There is no hero type man or woman who through his or her own efforts and struggles saves the day…
    There is just you, mostly on your knees asking God for help and guidance…
    Lots of study, prayer, meditation, and unpaid hard work…
    Nothing glamorous…
    You will not be paid billions for finding King Solomon’s treasure and all the scrolls from some long lost Library…
    You will mostly be broke, and mostly be in tears or angry, always seeking the help Of Jesus Christ to get back to that peace that he so often grants you, and that you so often have around you, and to make it just one more day…
    And you will never ever be recognized by the princes of this world… And I might even dare say – May the Lord help you if you are…

    Yet She now knows who has the ultimate say in all things after this life….
    She is in Good hands 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Oh yeah… Just so those who have never had anything like this happen to em or around them will know —-
    The Miracles in this girls life will NOT stop… They will get even deeper –> (struggling to find the words here) and she probably wont speak of em… (Unless led too of course)
    God is awesome like that 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Going from memory here… Ya might want to reread your Bible… Because Elijah might have something he is trying to tell ya… Go back through the Prophets and see just how many were taken to heaven either directly or in “Visions”… Might want to reread all of Paul’s stuff too… Hope this helps…

  • Indeed we do KD. You have read my comment correctly 😉 you get my humor.

  • magaforever

    Paul said to die is gain not soul sleep ..soul sleep is a pagan doctrine

  • Nan

    She isn’t disposed to consider Catholic Church teaching as she buys into a cult that a) supplants the True Church with Martin Luther’s heresy and b) teaches its adherents to hate the True Church.

  • Nan

    Yes and where do you think He was? He died and spent three days with the dead, where he collected the souls of the righteous who had gone before him and brought them to heaven.

  • Loneroo, thank for bringing this to my attention. In the update above, I found out you were correct, this story cannot be verified as I spent several hours tracing it and the claims by its author in other stories are outlandish.

  • Please review update above.
