Something even greater than the former Jesus movement is upon us right now! There is a fresh stirring of hunger for love in America. People in the church are feeling it. People outside the four walls of the church are feeling the drawing. Harvesting angels at this hour are being sent out on assignments. People are hungering for acceptance, forgiveness, the supernatural, and struggling with their identities. Jesus is about to quench a desperate parched thirst that nothing this world is currently offering, can afford and that no community can give outside of the Holy Spirit.
God has always had a heart for cities and nations even when darkness was upon them, such as Nineveh. This generation reminds us of the days of the hippies and bohemians, where many youth, though entrenched in darkness of new age and drugs, were hungry for truth, experience, and love. Sadly, much of the church in that time could not offer it in fullness until, until the precious Holy Spirit showed up, the only one that can draw people to Jesus. What is the precursor for a nation to be awakened to God? Common logic reveals that every revival in history was preceded with great darkness or deception in a nation. But a lovesick remnant would arise and said WE WANT YOU HOLY SPIRIT!
Saints, we are in the midst of the 50th anniversary coming up of the Six-Day War June 5-10, 1967 in Israel and at the same time the Jesus Movement, which also began in 1967 was being unleashed. We believe this is a significant prophetic time of jubilee as the number fifty represents exactly that.
The Six-Day War victory for Israel ignited passion across the land of Israel for all Jews. The right to the Western Wall, the most holy site, was returned to them and as a result, a new desire to seek God in prayer was birthed. During this time, a Messianic Movement was beginning! Thousands of Jews would receive Jesus as their Savior! Numbers of Jews were receiving their Jewish Messiah, Jesus, the likes never before seen in history! It’s no coincidence that at the same time in history another movement was beginning.
The Jesus Movement of America was in full bloom in the summer of 1967 in the hearts of a young community. Many of them dropped out of Christian colleges and left the culture they had been so involved in to give their lives to Jesus wholeheartedly. They would preach the simple gospel on the streets and see the sick healed. Miracles followed them as they urged others to come to Jesus. This was a counterculture to the summer of love in 1967, when young people dropped out of school and came out of societies expectations to live a life free and high on drugs, sex, and rock and roll. The Jesus Movement demonstrated a simple message of love and power that focused on the gospels and epistles and spread throughout America like a contagion. What caused such a stir for thousands to leave their cultural lifestyle of drugs to follow Jesus? I believe they were hungry for the true Jesus, not a religion without relationship. When they heard the message and saw it’s power their spirit had been longing for all along. Could this 50-year anniversary of the Jesus Movement’s birth be a catalyst to the next great awakening? Yes!
We are literally in the 50th year since 3 major events in the Judeo and Christian world alike. The Jesus movement broke out in 1967, the Six-Day War in Israel, and the Catholic Charismatic Renewal broke out. Is your appetite wet yet?
50 is the number of Jubilee. It points to deliverance and rest following the result of the perfect consummation of time.
This youth revival that birthed in 1967 exploded on the streets and it swept across the country, lighting up ravenous desire for Jesus in college campuses and coffee houses. People were being saved everywhere! It was radical for its day! Can we not believe something greater in our day, especially when we see the passion in this generation? You look at the passion currently in those that don’t know Jesus in the news and in the media. You can smell revolution is in the air on social media, and cannot God get a hold of a passionate people made in His image and transfer their misplaced passions into the light, redeeming a generation?
Haggai 2:9 says, “The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former, saith the LORD of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the LORD of hosts.”
That was the glory of the former house, but we’re going to see a greater glory on this latter house of America. The Lord specifically spoke to Munday and said,” What is about to spark this summer in America will so captivate a young generation that it will bring a massive awakening to the Jews in America and Israel which will spark a massive shift of souls to Jesus in the earth.” The 6-day war victory for Israel and the Jesus movement were for certain interconnected. What happens in Jerusalem seems to always manifest something significant in the earth at the exact same time. We believe something extraordinary is about to happen in Jerusalem this year. Isaiah 62:7 states, “Give him no rest until he establishes and makes Jerusalem a praise in all the earth.” When Jerusalem is a praise, the world responds!
In 1967 it did! The Catholic charismatic renewal got its start, one of the largest movements in Neo-Pentecostal history!
A group of professors at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh sparked a fire among their students after they themselves were baptized in the Holy Spirit, and it literally broke out into gatherings of prayer with healings and miracles everywhere!
This propelled the Jesus movement. TIME Magazine, in June 22nd 1971, called it, “The Jesus Revolution” with a rather psychedelic picture of Jesus on the front cover. In fact many people were leaving behind their psychedelic drugs and going into trances and open visions, completely transformed by the supernatural power of God!
At this time God raised up Lonnie Frisbee who was an extreme miracle worker! He was the hippie evangelist of the Jesus people movement in America. He was like the hidden prophet but could almost be credited for igniting three major moves of God! He was a major catalyst for the Calvary Chapel movement and the vineyard movement. He baptized people in the oceans of California and was often interviewed in magazines. When he preached, miracles followed, people were healed, and often would fall to the floor shaking, prophesying, speaking in tongues and seeing visions. Sure, Lonnie made some big mistakes, but we are learning to be full of power and holiness in this hour. I believe this nation has been tested and has been prepared for such a time as this.
We need this kind of power today outside the four walls of church and even outside the walls of Christian media. People are plainly getting tired of dry theology. They want the church to stop being famous for what we don’t do, but what we are doing. They want to see Jesus but it is going to have to be a people who best represent his nature, power, and love by being consumed by the Holy Spirit.
We have plenty of churches that do not want to preach about the supernatural Holy Spirit anymore, or miracles or signs or wonders. They’re too afraid to preach against anything that will offend rational thought and intellect, but that is about to shift dramatically. Jesus, in his earthly ministry, would manifest in the supernatural followed by teaching that would offend the mind so that He could reveal what was in the heart.
If we can change the heart, we can see people converted on a mass scale! I’m talking even people in government, Hollywood, the business and financial communities! COME ON SOMEBODY!
On Father’s Day in 1994 just after Lonnie’s death the Toronto outpouring was sparked out of the vineyard which was the catalyst to raise up many leaders today that are stewarding the Presence of God in a way we have not seen in years.
This is the hour of Hosea 14:4, for both Israel and America, and it will spread like wildfire throughout the nations of the world!
“I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely, for my anger is turned away from him.” Verse 7 goes on to say, “those who dwell under his shadow shall return, they shall be revived like grain and grow like a vine: the scent shall be as the wine of Lebanon.”
There has been a remnant dwelling in the secret place. They’ve been tested and tried to be facilitators of the greatest outpouring in the earth, and many of them are our youth. God is releasing a new wine revival and outpouring on the youth of America and Israel that will see young and old alike salivate for the Savior of the world!
The wine vine is here to stay! There is always a remnant that will not reject God! There is always a generation that gets rocked. We are in the one that’s about to get rocked the most in history!
Just look at the passion behind the people in the recent protests of our last election and that continue. God can get a hold of that passion, forgive their sins, and transfer it into the kingdom of light to do major damage on the kingdom of darkness. What’s going on the earth right now is greater than anything we have ever seen!
I love reading the stories of the old revivalists, past moves of God, but doesn’t it sometimes make you feel that we need something new and we need it now more than ever? God is about to usher in a jubilee as He remembers history and it is time to begin to expect something that will restore many in the church who have lost all hope. I’m telling you we need the Holy Spirit right now. He is the game changer! America is in the season of healing revival again. Miracle Harvest Glory is coming and the Lord says watch the month of August, as you will begin to see signs of this in the heavens and in the news as we approach the jubilee of the 6-day war in June!
This summer, God will release a sign over the nation of Israel and in the city of Jerusalem and it will be on the news. Everyone will be talking about it. This is the sign that this word is truly coming to pass. America will also be involved in a war ending years of oppression in a nation but it will be swift and not like the war in Vietnam that took years during the Jesus movement. This too will also be a sign in the coming years as we approach 2020 that the billion youth harvest that Bob Jones prophesied about is upon us and a sign years of oppression is breaking off of our generation in the USA.
Here we are 50 years later and we are crying out God do it again and He is! We’re about to see the greatest youth awakening that the world has ever seen! Amen!
