And now here’s your host, missionary and evangelist Daniel King.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (00:55):
Welcome to The evangelism podcast. I’m Daniel King and I’m excited about telling people about Jesus. And today I have a great evangelists with me, Michael Joe. Thank you so much for being with me today.
Michael Job (01:06):
Well, thank you so much, Dr. Daniel King, you have impacted my life so much in your teaching. I would not know how to do my crusades without you. So thank you.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (01:15):
What’s really unique about your ministry is that you started out being perfect. You played the part of Jesus. Tell me about that and how you played the part of being Jesus. Well
Michael Job (01:27):
Kind of grew into it, born in Bethlehem, and then now I’m kidding. Basically I ended up working with Trinity broadcasting network TBN and I was working there since 2004. I started crucifying Jesus, but gradually I became Jesus. And the, the, the honor of that is that in between the shows, I’m an evangelist. So I wasn’t there for acting in between the shows I would go out. I would pray for the audience and just see people get saved and healed the great thing after the Christ for all nations Reinhardt, Bunky, school of evangelism. I never really saw people healed before that. And he said, Friday, you start your ministry. And I went back to work and on Friday, like 40 people got healed was in downtown Orlando. A deaf person got healed and every single day, since then in 2013, I saw people get physically healed in the park between shows. It was really awesome to see what Jesus will do. If you just step out
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (02:25):
What a tremendous experience you played, the part of Jesus acting, but then you actually got to do what Jesus did. And that’s, what’s really amazing is that as believers, we can actually do what Jesus did. Jesus prayed for the sick and saw them healed. And Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever followers of Jesus can go pray for the sick and Jesus proves that he’s alive and, and heals them. And so it’s tremendous, but you have a tremendous heart for evangelism, and you’ve really got connected with Christ for all nations ministry of Daniel Kolenda. And you’ve been doing evangelism with them. I remember that you were in some of the training sessions early on that I got to teach in. And then you took that training and went to Africa and started preaching. Tell me some of what God did there while you were in Africa.
Michael Job (03:18):
Yeah. You first taught us in 2018 and it was in port Harcourt, Nigeria. And through your training, we were able to captivate the audience’s attention all the way throughout the message, which was awesome and amazing. We saw many people give their lives to the Lord. After that, we went to Togo, we went to NACUBO Kenya. We went to Abbey, Yokota, Nigeria, and then Tanzania this past fall and just seeing hundreds of thousands. And it’s not an exaggeration because we would go to schools and we would see like 2000 students just in one school, give their life to Jesus and totally surrender. And I love a lot of the principles that, that you gave us in capturing their attention throughout the message, how to work with the translator. So important in a foreign country. A lot of the principles that you put forth in our lives still remain to this day. And I couldn’t thank God enough for you. So
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (04:10):
And so in some of these different countries, you, you’ve got to go into some of the different schools and you would preach the gospel. There, you have a great way of just capturing the attention of the children. Kind of walk me through what that looks like. Like what would you say if you went into a school and you wanted to lead a group of children to Jesus, how would that go?
Michael Job (04:32):
Well, I, I mean, Bo basically all of the, all of the teachers get the students to come together and then we, we just give a quick, hello, it’s a very short time. We do a quick gospel message. That’s easy to understand for kids, give them an opportunity. Then they get the opportunity to receive the gift of the Holy spirit. And we end them with a song and it’s wonderful. We also do truck preaching and I’ve done some crusades since then, actually the first time that you taught us and how to do crusade ministry, I was going to Poland right after that. And I couldn’t thank God God enough, because I was like, you taught us exactly what we needed to do. And then I used it in Poland and I worked in Poland. The word of God works, no matter where you go, you preach it. God will work.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (05:20):
Amen. And so then I remember one time I showed you like a little sticker with three circles on it and it’s called the three circle method of a witnessing. Oh, there you have it right on the back of your, your, your cell phone. And so you printed it and you’ve got Michael jo.org on there. And so how’s that been going? It does it, does that work to help lead people to Jesus?
Michael Job (05:41):
Yes. there’s a few ways that I try to train people and how to reach a harvest for Christ. I love training in the Evangel cube, but it’s kind of expensive in this. I’ve found very effective in every single city in Poland that I went to, I do evangelism trainings and we were able to print this out and give it to every single person, including in Africa, big, bigger churches. Every person gets a sticker and we practice on sharing the gospel with this sticker. And one of the first times I used it here in Orlando, it was with a smaller group, a home Bible study by Daniel Merani Chenko. And the wonderful thing is, is that right after that, the students went out sharing the gospel. There was a, there was, there was a, a girl that never shared the gospel before. She just shared the simple, simple sticker with a pastor’s son who never received Christ. And he received Jesus 19 years old receiving Jesus. The first time a pastor son, the pastor must’ve been praying for ever and ever, and a girl for the first time, the first soul ever reaches a pastor son by preaching the gospel in a very simple way. And after that, we still see many people get saved through evangelism techniques that you have taught us. So we thank you so much for
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (06:56):
That’s awesome. Now, just recently you were in Tanzania and you had the opportunity to do your own crusade there, but you only have like nine days to set it up from, from beginning to end. And so sometimes you can do a lot of preparation for a crusade. Sometimes you can just go and, and do it. And so that’s what you did. You went in and did it tell me what were the results of that? What were some of the things that God did at that Christmas?
Michael Job (07:19):
Well originally we were looking to do a parent outreach, the parents of the kids for the schools. And so we had one scheduled on Sunday. It was in my heart to do another one. And, and the, the scripture union who, who were working with her, they said, well, why don’t you try this other field? And originally when I saw it, I was like, no, I can’t do it. There. There’s all these drug addicts and drunks. And I prayed about it. And all of a sudden the Holy spirit came and went food. And God said, I want you to go there. Then I want you to do something. I stepped up on the ground and the Holy spirit came. And so we were like, okay, I’m going to try it. So, nine days later, we’re in the midst of our crusade where there’s several churches on board, several choirs.
Michael Job (07:57):
We took a trucks around the city. We did evangelism teams several days before the crusade, about a hundred people would get saved per day on the evangelistic teams during the crusade. It was only nine days of preparation. But we did see 435 decisions for Jesus. It was in the most dangerous part of all of Doris Salaam, a block and a half away from a Muslim training center. One of the biggest Muslim training centers in Tanzania. And it was basically a place where you see a lot of drunk addicts, drunk drunkards, and basically God took them out of the pit of hell and brought them into the kingdom of God because God was willing to speak. And we just had to go.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (08:36):
And, and so you even printed flyers, how many flyers
Michael Job (08:39):
Were you able to print out? It was week four for that outreach. We did 70 or 80,000 flyers. We also printed, printed personal letters in personal envelopes to 10,000 students and 10 different schools and invited the parents of the, of children to the outreach. And we even did a raffle at the end. We gave away a cell phone bicycle, and several footballs every single day to try to get people to come and bless the community.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (09:06):
Well, what a tremendous success that is to put it all together only nine days. And you managed to print all the flyers, send out evangelism trucks, send out evangelism. That just goes to show that God is willing to work anywhere. Anytime, if someone will just go and get started and just try to make it happen. And you, you made it happen. What a, what a tremendous blessing it is. Did you see some miracles at that event?
Michael Job (09:32):
Oh, yes. Yeah. There was one woman who was deaf in one ear. She could hear, there were several stomach tumors that were healed and all pain left their body. And they were dancing. There was one woman with a leg pain and she got healed. And other woman with the neck pain, she got healed. And there was, there was a, the first day I prayed for the sick and there was a big line coming. We couldn’t do all the testimonies because of the time, but there was a God showed up big time. There was a one precious woman. She was a Muslim, she just got saved and she got healed. So she came on and she testified of what God did in her body. And she was totally healed and went to church that very week. And we saw some of those new converts who were Muslims just yet, yesterday. They were in church, saved, expecting a miracle in church, which was wonderful.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (10:18):
That’s so amazing. And so you said that you did it in a place where all the drug dealers and the drunk people were, did some of the people that were addicted to drugs, did they get saved at the crusade?
Michael Job (10:30):
I’m supposing they were, I don’t really know.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (10:34):
Did they come, did they, did they come and listen
Michael Job (10:36):
Some well, they couldn’t help, but listen, because there was trees and they were all like hanging out there and we did our crusade right in front of it. So, so they had to listen. They had front row seats for them. So praise God for that.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (10:51):
Wow. That is, you’re truly doing the work of an evangelist. That, that is tremendous. And tell me over the years you’ve been developing your ministry what’s your, your website. And if people want to find out more information about your ministry, how can they find you?
Michael Job (11:10):
You could go to, Jesus loves you, evangelistic ministries.com. And if you don’t want to type all that in, just go to Michael J O b.org, Michael jobe.org.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (11:20):
That’s awesome. All right. I want you to give an altar call. Imagine that you were standing on a field in Africa, and there are thousands of people there that are listening. You know, they’re there, it’s hot. The sun is beating down. People are thirsty and you’re trying to capture their attention and keep the, I know you’re very good at keeping people’s attention. Kind of give me like a five minute presentation of the gospel and an alter call. What would you do to help bring those people to Jesus and pretend like we’re actually out there on the field
Michael Job (11:54):
And you’re giving the altar call to them. All right. Well, if you know, God loves you. Wave your hand. Nice and high Yes. He loves you so much. I have a very, Very, very quick story. I want to share with you. See, there was a man who was very rich. He lived in this city and one day he said, I know what I’m going to do with my money money. I’m gonna buy a big house with a big bed. The man went to sleep. He heard a knock on the door. And when he opened the door, guess who was, who was Jesus? The man was amazed. He was like, Jesus caribou. Please come into my house. You can have the biggest house, the man Lentz asleep. And there was another knock this time. It was a different person. He opened the door, guests who we saw this time. It was the devil. Oh, the devil made him all mad. He gave him back pain. Oh, he gave him the pain. He gave him all this pain. The men woke up and he was mad at the Lord.
Michael Job (12:41):
He said, Lord, I’m a little mad at you. I let you in my house, in the devil’s in my house. And the Lord said, you only gave me one room. So the, he said, well, okay, I’ll give you every room. Except my bedroom. See, in my bedroom, there’s things that I do that are not right. That, that you would not want to see sex before marriage drugs, but you can have every other room the men want it goes to sleep. And there’s another knock. He opens up the door, guess who it is. Oh, it’s that devil again. And this time the devil tempts him with, with all this depression, with all these people, insulting him and been abusing him and hurting him. And the men woke up and he said, I can’t do this life anymore. And just as they said that Jesus tapped him on the shoulder.
Michael Job (13:18):
He looked around and, and Jesus said to you, didn’t try one thing hand over the keys of your house. To me, let me be the owner of the house. And I’ll let you live here around free. The man said, okay. And that night there was another knock. This time Jesus opened up the door cause he had the keys. And when Jesus opened up that door, the devil saw him and ran faster than he’s ever run. Before. The reason I tell you this story is because God doesn’t want to be in one room of your life. He doesn’t want to be in three rooms of your life. He wants to be in every room of your heart. Now, why do I talk about the Lord? Jesus? Because Jesus is the only one that came from heaven to earth for you. He’s the only one that led us sinless life for you.
Michael Job (13:54):
He’s the only one that died on the cross for you. He’s the only one that raised from the dead for you. He’s the only one that’s seated on the right hand. Throne of God, my friend, if you have sin in your life, that that devil is knocking on your door. And if you even have one sin, the wages of sin is death. One sin is enough to go to a devil’s hell, but I’m telling you one drop of the blood of Jesus is enough to cleanse you from all sin. See Jesus took your sins. He took my sins. He took your punishment. He took my punishment on that cross. His blood will cleanse you and he just didn’t die. But he Rose from the dead and he is alive. I want you to shout. Jesus Is alive. Jesus is, he is Alive today and he wants to come alive in your life. But just knowing that is not enough. You have to make a choice. Say, make a choice, make a choice. He wants to you to make a choice to receive him. Remember he is alive and he’s knocking on the door of your heart. He said, if any men will come in, he would knock and hear my and open the door. I will come in. Do you want Jesus in your life? Do you want to be forgiven of every sin? Are you willing to turn from your sins and turn in your, live your life for God? He loves you. He died for you. My question is, will you live your life for him? If you want Jesus, I want you to close your eyes. Yeah, you watching right now. We’re hearing right now. I want you to close your eyes.
Michael Job (15:11):
Now as the time of salvation, it’s not tomorrow. It’s not next week. It’s as right now, if you want to make a choice for the Lord, close your eyes, lift up your hands and say, Jesus, everyone. Shout Jesus. Come into my life. Be my Lord. Be my, be my savior. Thank you for dying for me. Thank you for dying. Thank you for raising from the dead. Thank you for raising. I surrender all of my life to you. Surrender all of my life to be my Lord and savior my Lord in Jesus name. Jesus. Amen. You just said that you are born again. You have Jesus, you are forgiven and you have the gift of heaven. Wow. That is tremendous. You are a master evangelist, Michael, that was just so captivating and what a tremendous way to share the gospel. And I know that if you were on the fields of Africa, the whole field would get saved.
Michael Job (16:04):
People would come to Jesus. So that’s awesome. What’s your website. One more time. Jesus loves you. Evangelistic ministries.com or go to Michael job.org. So Michael Joe, joe.org. And so I’d encourage you to go check out his ministry, check out his website and learn more about those great evangelistic ministry. The man who looks like Jesus and also acts like Jesus.

I know you’re probably going to be preaching. We can’t wait to be together in the harvest field and Africa to see thousands saved. Hallelujah. Amen. Thank you. God bless you.
Evangelism Coach Daniel King (16:47):
Thanks so much for listening to the evangelism podcast today, I’m excited about telling people about Jesus. And what we found is that as we go to different nations of the world, it takes us an average of about $1 for every person we’re able to reach with the gospel. And so some countries are more expensive. Some countries are a little bit less expensive, but on average, we’ve invested about $1 for every person we’re able to lead to Jesus. So today I’m asking you to go to my website, King ministries.com and give $1, $2, $5, become a monthly partner, help us to lead people to Jesus. Imagine you can start a party in heaven with just $1. Also go to Apple iTunes, leave us a review for the evangelism podcast with Daniel King. So lots of people can find this evangelism podcast. God bless you
