A New Jesus Movement

The Jesus Movement did not begin in the late ‘60s nor did it die in the mid ’70s. It began with Jesus and is still moving! It has never stopped.

There is a stirring in America about a New Jesus Movement. Many different groups are doing events and meetings to bring this to pass. Most of the people involved in present day efforts to bring this to pass were not part of the start of this movement in 1967 or 1968. It is very important to see and understand what was in the past to face the future.

You need to know that you do not have to use the word Jesus Movement or New Jesus Movement or any other term to be a part of the true proclaiming and witnessing of Jesus anywhere in the world today.

The heart and soul of what was happening was focused on leading a person to Jesus and immediately taking them out to where they had been hanging out to share Jesus with their friends and strangers.

For those who say the Jesus Movement died out I would say that it may have died out of many peoples lives when they lost the love, passion, power and zeal that they had for the lost. But it has never died out in my life! I have lived to see with my eyes and hear with my ears the Jesus Movement go into every country and major island group on earth as I’ve carried the cross sharing Jesus.

The heart and soul of what was happening was focused on leading a person to Jesus and immediately taking them out to where they had been hanging out to share Jesus with their friends and strangers.

I would use one word that might help one understand what was happening. The word is ‘Zeal’! A Zeal given by God and filling the hearts of the people going out for others to be saved.

Most conversations between the people witnessing was about prayer, evangelism, the Holy Spirit, Jesus and how to reach Sunset Strip and the world with the message of Jesus. Plus there was a second word I like to use and that is “Joy”.  Almost all the people out sharing were happy. Smiling and full of love and excitement. This can’t be worked up. It was Jesus given!

Most of the prayers were for the people witnessing. We believed that God already wanted people saved but is was the laborers that were few and needed the Power of the Holy Spirit leading them.

I’ve now carried the cross in every country on earth and every major island group in the world over 42,788 miles (68,860 km) in 324 countries, island groups & territories. 85.5 million steps and over 19 billion pounds carried in 324 nations and major islands groups.2019, is my 51 year of carrying the cross and I am still going… at the age of 78.

For many decades my wife Denise has traveled with me. She has driven in front of me, parking a few miles up the road. She has been with me and the cross in 295 countries and island groups. I could not have made it without her. All of my children have been with me carrying the cross in overseas countries. They are a great part of this cross mission for Jesus.

I believe when Jesus comes again there will be a great time of worldwide evangelism, witness & ministry. Jesus said, “I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.” Matt. 16:18

The links below will give a real history of the Jesus Movement as seen through my eyes. There are stories and videos plus seeing the Hand of Jesus moving from the street level to the top of the media and all around the world. This was not planed from the top down but came up from the streets and from mostly unknown people as Jesus changed lives and filled their lives with the power of the Holy Spirit. So I share these many links that you may go as far and deep as you desire. Note that I wrote about twenty pages about the Jesus Movement on my blessitt website. *
