I watched the faith-based movie, Woodland. It is a very good Christian movie and talked a lot about Jesus. The setting was in the 1970s. It talked about The Jesus Movement from when Billy Graham talked at the Super Bowl for the Expo ’72 and all the lights went out and he lit a candle. To show one, as in one way. This revolution also sparked the true story about Woodlawn at a time of segregation.
The Jesus Revolution started in the 1960’s and by the 70’s it got its media exposure.
The Jesus Revolution was even featured and on the cover of Time magazine June 21, 1971 Vol. 27 No. 25 (see image in this blog post). In order to read the full article online at Time, you must have a subscription. The article was entitled “The Alternative Jesus: Psychedelic Christ”
Below is a snip-it of that article.
ALIAS: THE MESSIAH, THE SON OF GOD, KING OF KINGS, LORD OF LORDS, PRINCE OF PEACE, ETC.
- Notorious leader of an underground liberation movement
- Wanted for the following charges:
- Practicing medicine, winemaking and food distribution without a license.
- Interfering with businessmen in the temple.
- Associating with known criminals, radicals, subversives, prostitutes and street people.
- Claiming to have the authority to make people into God’s children.
- APPEARANCE: Typical hippie type—long hair, beard, robe, sandals.
- Hangs around slum areas, few rich friends, often sneaks out into the desert.
BEWARE: This man is extremely dangerous. His insidiously inflammatory message is particularly dangerous to young people who haven’t been taught to ignore him yet. He changes men and claims to set them free.
WARNING: HE IS STILL AT LARGE!
I have no clue what the rest of the article says. But you are welcome to read the full story if you wish. They do have a monthly subscription rate and a yearly subscription rate. You must have a subscription to read the full article too. To read the full article visit: content.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,905202,00.html
The reason Jesus is still at large is because He is Alive. Jesus is the true King. He died for us and arose from the dead. Jesus can change anyone. The Bible says we are a new creation with Him. (2 Corinthians 5:17). Once you do accept Jesus you do become a child of God. Yes, Jesus is the great Physician. He is the ultimate healer. Sometimes we are not healed here on earth, but for a child of God, we get ultimate healing in a gloried new body in Heaven.
Below are a couple of ministries that want to get the Jesus Movement going back to have a Jesus Revolution. Will you join in and share Jesus to others? You don’t have to go to a big event to experience a Jesus Revolution, all you have to do is what we are called to do … Share the Gospel! Tell everyone about Jesus. People you know, people you love, work with, go to school with, are shopping by you, live near you … Everyone you come in contact with is an opportunity to share the gospel.
Pulse Reset Involvement – Together 2016
Together with Nick Hall and Pulse Reset (Reset 2016 – Together 2016) wants to help bring back The Jesus Revolution. Their dream is to see one million people stand together for Jesus on the National Mall (Washington, DC). Jesus changes everything! Even religion doesn’t unite. We believe only Jesus can bring us together. July 16, 2016, is the day our generation will meet on the National Mall to come together around Jesus in unified prayer, worship, and a call for catalytic change. July 16, 2016 is the day when this generation lays down what divides us and lifts up Jesus who unites us. This Reset is called Together 2016.
Unity like the Ants
Interesting I just recently posted about Unity and we should come together for Jesus in this blog Post: Unity: The Floating Ants
Harvest America Involvement
Greg Laurie with Harvest America is wishing to help the Jesus Movement to make the Jesus Revolution come back to life again. Harvest America is chance for you to make a stand for Jesus Christ and let others know about Him, just like in Woodlawn. It’s a nationwide proclamation of the gospel! Streamed live from an arena in Texas, the Good News will be preached to thousands of locations across the United States—including homes, churches, and public venues—on March 6, 2016.
