“Turn us again to yourself, O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies. Make your face shine down upon us. Only then will we be saved.”
The last great American revival was the Jesus Movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. We called it a Jesus Movement back then. And we called ourselves Jesus People.
Time magazine, however, dubbed this moment in time the “Jesus Revolution.” The word revolution means an upheaval, a dramatic change. It looked like America was going downhill fast, and it was. So God sent a revolution, and it changed the nation.
Our nation needs another Jesus Revolution right now. In fact, the United States of America was born during a spiritual awakening. George Whitefield, a preacher from England, proclaimed the gospel in the colonies, and thousands of people came to faith in Christ.
