Are you longing for a spiritual revival?
The Jesus movement was a period during the 60’s and 70’s which saw thousands of hippies coming to know Christ.
It was a period where revival was spreading both rapidly and spontaneously among a generation that was more into getting high on drugs than praising the Lord.
If you have been feeling spiritually dry lately and are longing to be on fire for God, I encourage you to revive your spirit with these scriptures on revival as you fervently pray to Christ to create in you a clean heart.

Scriptures On Revival
The following revival Bible verses have all been taken from the King James Version.
“Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you” Acts 3:19-20
“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalms 51:10
“The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple.” Psalms 19:7
“O Lord, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O Lord, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.“Habakkuk 3:2
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
“Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?” Psalms 85:6
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
Books On Revival
The Jesus Revolution is a story told by Greg Laurie and Ellen Vaughn that goes into detail of a time of mass revival. During this time, we saw many unlikely people coming to Christ and experiencing a spiritual revival.
If you have heard of the Jesus Revolution and want to know more about this period then this book is for you.
This book is not what I expected. The book Jesus Revolution promises to walk you through how God transformed an unlikely generation and how he can do it once again in a generation where 75 percent of young people who grew up in Christian homes and churches are now abandoning their faith. While the author did manage to walk us through how the hippies from the 60’s and 70’s lived and how Jesus managed to transform their lives, I felt it was lacking with a summary of the key methods that were utilized that we can apply to today’s generation.
Through historical events such as the assassination of Kennedy and personal stories, Greg walks you through what things were like living in the 60’s and 70’s. As a reader, you had a clear picture of the environment that was influencing young adults during that period. Just like today, there were broken homes, feelings of emptiness and loneliness, but they felt there had to be more to life.
The Jesus Movement reminded me of the day of Pentecost in the Book of Acts where the spirit of God moved among the people and at the end of it all, thousands were baptized. I found this book a very powerful testimony of the movement of the holy spirit, the change it brings in peoples lives once they are willing to let him lead. The Jesus Revolution is a modern day testimony of what God can do through us once we become willing vessels allowing him to work through us.
