Night was falling and Jakob was on the run. His brother, Esau, with four hundred armed men, would soon overtake him. All his life, Jakob had been a deceiver and now, once again, he plotted to use his wit to avoid Esau's wrath. Scared and alone, Jakob sensed a man behind him. Little did he know that this man would change his life. They fought all night, Jakob struggling as he never had before. His life of trickery played through his mind. If he could just be spared this night, he would right all the wrongs, put the deceit behind him--he would become a new man. But as they fought, the assailant did something no ordinary man, not even a warrior like Esau, could do. With a touch, he threw Jakob's hip out of socket. At that moment, as he became aware of the identity of his attacker, Jakob no longer struggled against the 'man' but clung to Him, not letting Him go, pleading for a blessing. On the night Jakob wrestled with Him, God erased Jakob's past and changed his name from Jakob to Israel, 'Supplanter' to 'One who wrestles with God.' He became a new creation! This kind of transformation through personal contact with Christ is the purpose and plea of Jakob's Night. Although Jakob's Night started small in a humble dorm room many years ago, the mission has remained immutable. Through the different incarnations of the group before they became Jakob's Night, their unchanging goal has been to share their own hopes, dreams, and struggles with God with whoever is willing to listen. God has truly blessed their efforts and their willingness to be led as far as possible. The ministry opportunities have abounded since Jakob's Night began their tight touring schedule during the summer of 2002. Playing almost every weekend from Indiana to North Carolina has put them in contact with the most wonderful people on the planet (well, at least the Eastern U.S.). 'Epic Journey' is their much-anticipated second CD, produced by Audio Adrenaline founding member and guitarist Barry Blair. Not knowing what God has in store for them, Jakob's Night looks to the future, hoping to bless the world with the news that the most powerful being in the universe seeks a personal relationship with each and every one of us. Oh yeah, they have a great time doing it, too!
