*** Charisma-Part 2… ***

Just now, a conference called Empowered 21 is being held in Tulsa, in the USA. It’s the first time that we have a display booth in the USA! Here is our volunteer American team taking care of the booth. It’s a modest beginning, but it’s the opportunity for us to present the Jesus.net Widget that we are launching in English. Come get a sneak-preview here: www.jesus.net. This widget is very special, and I will speak to you about it in an upcoming TopBlog.

In the photo, here are two of our volunteers in the USA. To the left on the screen is the Jesus.net Widget and to the right is Google Earth with the real-time decisions.

In the meantime, I invite you to read the second part of the interview given to the American magazine, Charisma. You can read the first part here.

4. What is your reaction, or what would you like to say, about the fact that the 1.7 million people have clicked to accept Jesus as a result of the Website?

I am simply amazed and blessed. We have developed an application that enables us to watch real-time decisions through Google Earth. (See decisions.jesus.net) At least once every minute, someone says “YES” to Jesus. I praise God all the time. I am just a humble pastor in the small country of France, but now our team has a global impact. It’s such a blessing! A verse from the Scriptures really touched me when I started this ministry. It is 2 Corinthians 12:9 (New International Version) “But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” You have to know that from the start of this Internet Ministry, I have experienced many spiritual attacks. The week we started, I was struck seriously ill and lay in a hospital with the doctors not knowing if I would survive! So, I know that it’s the grace of God. His grace is enough! It’s not and will never be Eric’s ministry. It’s Jesus’ Ministry!

5. Has any other web-based ministry ever helped this many people come to the Lord in so short an amount of time?

Yes! We are not alone in this endeavor. Campus Crusade for Christ is doing a great work for the Kingdom through their websites, such as EveryStudent.com or Jesus2020.com. LifeChurch with its iPhone Bible application is also doing well. We often collaborate with these organizations because they are innovators! We need more internet pioneers in the Kingdom, more Evangelist Entrepreneurs, and more Spirit-filled initiatives!

6. The story for Charisma magazine is about how new technological innovations are impacting the Church and the way it shares the Good News with the world. What do you see happening in this regard?

Today, we live in a global village. The Holy Spirit is starting little fires all around the world, and through the Internet, we can know about it in real time! I really believe that Americans have a strategic role to play by blowing on these little fires; blowing through prayer, through offerings, through technology, and through partnerships. With the help of Charisma readers and others, I believe that we will go to the next level. Our vision is big. By the year 2020, we believe it is possible to expose one billion seekers to the Gospel and see 100 million new believers in Jesus – all on the Internet! I believe that we will see it happen!

7. What else would you like to say?

I am French, but I love the American people. You always have the “We can do it!” attitude. I love it! As Christians, we need to seize the opportunity of the Internet age. The largest unreached people group in the entire world is those under the age of 30 years old – The Internet Generation! There is a dying world, and we can reach it. So let’s do it together! If you have a website, just go to widget.jesus.net and request your free Jesus.net widget today. You will then become part of this global harvest! If you don’t have a website, invite your friends to Jesus.net and see what God does in their lives! If you are on facebook, become a fan of facebook.com/jesus.net and spread the Word to the world!
