Does your heart yearn for something new? Are you hungry for something that satisfies your hunger for truth? Are you desperate enough to taste and see that the Lord is good? “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.” Ezekiel 36:26 KJV Jesus is the answer to the current world crisis. If we get our eyes off the chaos, and look up and ask God for a revival, He will deliver, as He has, and is now doing. Hearts were changed at Asbury College and the FAME of revival has sparked the FLAME of the Holy Spirit and He is spreading the GOOD NEWS of the Gospel as He touches hearts through “The Chosen” the “Jesus Revolution.” and the upcoming documentary “Come Out in Jesus Name.” Miraculous deliverance daily, COME and SEE.
Father God, thank You for changing our hearts, for renewing our minds, for restoring our souls, for giving us hope. Our hard hearts are transformed by Your holy presence. You brake down our defenses, and our excuses and we gladly admit we lie, cheat and steal the reputations of others. We sin against a holy God and we are sorry. We confess that we need a Savior, we need a fresh start with Jesus as our Lord. With this a new heart, we are enabled to see the world through Your eyes by the power of Holy Spirit. AMEN
Our Christian culture judges people and the church is divided. The movie “Jesus Revolution” is a film about UNITY. It strikes a broad audience with AWE. People get to feel things like HOPE again. Emotions that were never there before, rise up to inspire us to actually believe in God. People today are for social justice and people now, after the pandemic will identify more with a way to live that defeats hate. More than anything Father, we want to honor You with how we love one another. Lead us, show us ways to do this. “Movements are a team sport” and there are no bench sitters. All who accept Jesus become children of God regardless of race or religion. NOW is the time for all us, the flawed people in this world to celebrate the HOPE we have in Jesus.
The FAME of revival spreads the FLAME of the Holy Spirit. In the movie Greg tells Cathe “If at anytime you put me above Jesus, the relationship is over.” Here they are still together! The world is awakening through the what we witnessed at Asbury College in February 2023. The Holy Spirit anointed Dallas Jenkins and Greg Laurie with a spirit of creativity. According to God’s perfect plan and timing, revival is being promoted in 2,500 theatres in February 2023. Bring others to encounter Jesus. REVIVE your soul as you renew your faith in God Almighty. He knows your name and He is waiting to receive you with open arms. Lord Jesus help me focus on Your Word that I may be found faithful at harvest time. His answers to all the stuff in life are found in the Holy Bible. Watch this clip on YouTube for best quality.
On February 22, 2023 I saw the “Jesus Revolution” in Plano, Texas this is my review. Let us not complain about what is going on in the world, but let us begin praying as in 2 Chronicle 7:14. We are fishers of men, women, and children God desires “a people” that will be faithful to obey as they perceive the immensity of His love, plan, and Way. The movie Jesus Revolution shows the impact of His love for all people through the life of Pastor Chuck Smith 🙌 All glory to God for He called Chuck to show great compassion and patience on a lost generation. The messengers change, but God never changes. Chuck Smith taught Pastor Jack Hibbs, and 51 other church plants resulted from the 1971 revival that began in Newport Beach, California and spread to other countries. Pray for the suicidal youth of today to be awakened. Jesus canceled the Liar’s influence back then, and the Holy Spirit is still conquering souls in 2023. The Chosen — brought fans to the theatre of all ages. The Chosen Bible studies knit the OT with NT with maps and prayers for each episode. God is using all creative efforts to draw more people into His kingdom. The premiere began with interviews. The audience laughed, wept, and cheered. Regardless of your faith, or current crashing life, this film gives all hope to all who have feels like they are too messy, too lost to be redeemed.
A teachable moment…one pastor transformed himself into a homeless person and went to the church that he would soon lead. He walked around the church grounds for 30 minutes while it was filling with people. Only 3 people said hello to him, most looked the other way. Looking hungry, he asked people for change to buy food, he only got looks of disgust. Clad in rags, he was told by the ushers that he needs to sit in the back of the church. He said hello to people but was greeted with cold stares by Christians who were judging him. He listened to the church announcements and he watched people around him continue to stare and make him feel unwelcome. The elders of the church went to the podium to introduce the new pastor. The congregation stood up and looked around clapping with joy and anticipation. The guy they shuffled to the back of the church began to walk down the aisle. All the applause stopped and the church was silent. With all eyes on him….he walked up the altar and reached for the microphone. He stood there for a moment and then recited elegantly, a verse from the bible….“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited Me in, I needed clothes and you clothed Me, I was sick and you looked after Me, I was in prison and you came to visit Me.’ “Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You something to drink? When did we see You a stranger and invite You in, or needing clothes and clothe You? “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for the least of my brothers and sisters, you did for Me.’ After the pastor read, he told the congregation what he had experienced that morning. Many began to cry and bow their heads in shame. “Today I see a gathering of people here but I did not feel the presence of Jesus. The world has enough people that look the other way. What the world needs is disciples of Jesus that will follow His lead, and do what He says. He then dismissed service “Go out and humbly present Jesus to the poor, the sick, the lame, the rejected…as Jesus did.

A movie night with the family, coukd change everything. God is with me, my Father is for me! In a flash, bam we are changed! 1 Samuel 10:9 “As king Saul turned to leave Samuel, God changed Saul’s heart, and all these signs were fulfilled that day.” WOW – once I was a total mess, then I was not! Jeremiah 24:7 “I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the Lord. They will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with all their heart.” ❤️ Let it be so Lord, AMEN Ezekiel 36:26 “]I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.

In Texas just in time to see this film. In my room without distraction I am so touched by the Bible study by Dallas and his bride Amanda. “What does it mean to be Chosen?” We are all bound together in God’s proven faithfulness to Israel as we watch current events —prophecies and promises being filled. To all who respond to His call 📞 we are the CHOSEN people of God. Our Father has been generous with detailed accounts —that we learn lessons from a history of disobedient people. Once rescued, the sinful nature of man continues. Humanities need for a Savior is crystal clear. I praise God for His constant grace and mercy. Raise your hand and call out to God 🙌 Praise His holy name, and His plan to rescue us from the pit.

The pastor dressed as a homeless person is the true story about the Brooklyn Tabernacle Church. It went from 20 members to 10,000 members under same pastor. Story is in the book entitled “Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire” by Jim Cymbala

Pastor Chuck Smith on the importance of not trying to be dynamic. He was likeable, humble, and honest. He was a much needed fresh wind of the Holy Spirit in 1969. With a wide smile he shares why he wanted to stay in Huntington Beach, and why he began teaching out of First John. The Jesus Revolution 🙌 is his story and the revival we gave all prayed for has returned. Go see the movie with your famoly and spark a continued revival of what God began at Asbury in February 2023. This teaching was 12 years ago. 😳 https://youtu.be/qmae-pOIb_w
