Muslim Hezbollah Soldier meets Jesus in a Jail, now a Pastor at Vancouver Christian Fellowship.


Afshin Javid, a former Hezbollah (an Islamic Militant Group) soldier encountered Jesus while he was caught and put in jail in Malaysia.

He was born in Iran in a devout muslim family. Since childhood he followed all commandments of Islam including fasting and praying. His grandfather was a devout Muslim, his father was a leader for Islamic revolution in Iran. He wanted to involve himself into more of Islamic works and so he joined Hezbollah and served as a soldier with them for 2 years in Pakistan.

Later he moved to Malaysia, but was caught by Malaysian police because of his illegal passport. He was put in Jail and it is in the Jail he had a strange rencounter that changed his life for ever. In the jail cell, he left some strange spirit moving and he had a feeling in his heart that he would die. He started praying and rebuking the spirit in the name of ‘Allah’, but he then heard a voice saying Rebuke it in the Name of Jesus. Once he did that, he felt the strange spirit had left.

He now felt that some one put had on his shoulder, he was surprised as it was a Jail cell. He cried to see who it was, when he asked for the name – The Voice Said, I am Jesus, The Way The Truth & The Life.  He realized that Jesus is the True Living God, and he confessed Jesus as the Only God. Denouncing Allah in Islam is an unforgivable sin, he says.

Its not about Conversion, but it begins Confusion to know more about Jesus. He then was given a Bible in the Jail cell, the Bible was in English but God helped him understand the Language that he is not familiar with.

Today, he is a pastor at Vancouver Church Fellowship and speaks to Believers on how to understand a Non-Believer.
