Brother Jacob started Experience Jesus in March of 2018. He did this because he wants everyone to know how amazing it is to live with Jesus. During his growing up he didn’t really knew Jesus, even though he called himself a Christian. But thank God, he got to know Jesus personally later and since then he wanted to live for Jesus the rest of his life.
Jesus is very important to him because Jesus changed his life. Before he knew Jesus, he was full of hopelessness and fear. Jesus turned this around and gave him real purpose in his life. From then on, his desire was for everyone to be part of this joyful life as well. Therefore he searched for different ways to share about his new life with Jesus and he was eager to learn more about Jesus. he followed a bible school to learn more about the bible and following Jesus. He also did a course about world religions to understand how people live and think about spirituality. Besides that, he was involved in different ministries to serve Jesus. Among others he was part of an online course to help people to get free from sexual sin and worked with students at universities to share about Jesus. He learned a lot from all this studying and serving. In the end, he was led to share what he learned by starting the website who-is-jesus-really.com (which became experiencejesus.live), and so Experience Jesus began.
It started by creating the Jesus Course to help others share in the new life he had experienced since he got to know Jesus personally. Next to the Jesus Course, it was his desire to serve others by prayer, so they will experience Jesus in this way. Beside that, he loves to share about insights he still receives from God. That is why he is still eager to learn more about Jesus and he studies the Bible a lot. Since years he is studying the Bible intensely by copying it by hand. He does not only do this in English, but also in Arabic. He started with the Gospel of Mark, which he has copied more than once now, and then he started to do the other gospels and other New Testament books as well.
He likes to study the Bible in this way, because it gives insights to not only study it in English. He looks forward to study the Bible in other languages as well. Because it takes some time to copy the Bible by hand, there is more time to let the Holy Spirit help him to understand the Bible and give revelations about God and God’s will. Last but not least, he cannot skip any less favorite passage when copying a complete Bible book. Therefore, this gives a complete picture of what the word of the Bible teaches and keeps him from false teaching which only focuses on part of what the Bible teaches.
Brother Jacob is very happy that he can share about the wonderful life with Jesus and from what he learns from studying the Bible. He thinks it is amazing that it is possible to share about this online, but he is also excited to equip and inspire the Body of Christ in other ways. He looks forward to give a training or give a talk wherever God calls him. His only desire is to help people with the Truth he found in Jesus. In all this, he is blessed that the Holy Spirit helps him to share about Jesus online and offline, every day. Also, he thanks God for the support given through other people. He cannot do this work alone and he is really grateful that God does not let him stand alone in this ministry.
