My name is Jason Evans. I am the founder and leader of On The Line Ministries. I want to share who I am with you. You see, God speaks in many ways. The way I heard His voice one day in July was a still small voice that spoke into my soul. It wasn’t words… it was a power that could be understood as words. God simply said “Do you want to chance it?”
I knew it was God and I answered by saying, “No I don’t…” because I knew He was talking about Hell. The rest of that night I spent pleading with God to save and forgive me. I cried myself to sleep praying for salvation. When I woke in the morning I continued to do so. I knew I needed God to save me. I just didn’t know how to get Him to do it!
It was then that I turned on the T.V. to hear some Christian programs. I was trying to find answers on how to be saved. As I changed the channels I stumbled upon a preacher who said the words, “Did you pray it? Did you mean it? Then it is done!” and I finally grabbed hold of faith to believe.
I have never stopped believing and following my God since that day. I am not perfect and have my faults but I know the one who is perfecting me. I don’t like being fake or others trying to be fake because the truth really does set us free. So if you want someone who puts on a show about being perfect you need to look elsewhere. But if you want the truth in all it’s realness I can help.
God has called me to serve others the word. It was a few years after I had became a Christian. The strong presence of God I had felt early in my Christian life was not as strong. It was then that I learned to walk by faith during that time and not feeling. Too many people base their walk with God on feeling. I trusted the word instead and refused to deny my God. It was very painfully having to go through this. But it did teach me many things about faith and about being grounded in that faith.
Finally, one day after crying out for Him I asked for something that changed me. I asked in prayer that if God could not get through to me any other way then I requested for Him to send me a dream. While I slept that night God answered that prayer. Sometimes a dream is just a dream. Then sometimes the Spirit of God is so strongly felt when you wake up and the meaning of the dream is revealed to you clearly. This was one of those times.
In the dream I stood in a dark place next to a man of God. He asked me, “What do you want from God?” I answered saying, “Just to be close to Him.” and the man took me to a room filled with people, chairs, tables, and a table spread with food in the middle of them. I noticed no one had any food and looked somewhat lost and hungry. Yet they did not go and get the food.
The man looked at me and said, “You want to be close to God? Serve them.” and then I put an apron on and began to place the plates of food in front of people. Some people rejected the food, while others ate it and thanked me, and others not only ate the food but got up to serve themselves. When I woke it was clear that the food was the word and that I should and must serve it. So please let me serve you through this ministry.
It’s The Bible!
In short… I believe the Bible. I believe it is the inspired word of God and that it is without error and perfect. However since we are not perfect because of the flesh I believe sometimes we are not able to understand it in all of its glory. What we do have, as Christians, is the spirit of God that leads us into all truth (John 16:13). So we have the chance to understand by the spirit this perfect word.
