"As part of The Gospel Coalition's Something Needs to Change event held Wednesday night, David Platt, author and pastor of McLean Bible Church, held an interview with a missionary identified only as Yazim.
“He lives and works in a part of the Middle East where, not only is it illegal to share the Gospel, it’s life-threatening to talk about how the Gospel is advancing,” Platt said.
Speaking via simulcast with a disguised voice, Yazim began by stating, “God is moving inside the Middle East with dreams, visions, and personal visitations.”
He shared the story of a man who lived about 50 kilometers outside of an unnamed Middle Eastern city known for vast opium use.
“This man said this to us when we visited him: ‘A man wearing all white knocked at my door every night and I couldn’t look at him because his face was so shiny and bright,’” Yazim recalled. “‘When he would come inside, he asked me to write down what he said. As I wrote, I fell asleep. The next night, he would come again for the next month.’”
Yazim asked the man, “What did you write? May I see your notebook?”
The man showed Yazim his notebook. In it was written: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made," the opening portion of the New Testament book of John.
“He had the whole book of John verbatim in his notebook,” Yazim revealed. “Jesus visited him every night until he finished the book. The amazing thing is, the man actually asked us, ‘who was this man that visited me?’”

The Lord does still appear to people (He appeared to a dear Jewish woman I know and that is how she came to know He really is the Messiah, the Son of God) but the thought I wanted to add is on this particular testimony that was shared it could also have been one of the Lord's angels.
Either way, Glory to God who is the same yesterday, today and forever
