Jack Hibbs on Revival: Returning to Our First Love and Living Out What We Believe
Jack Hibbs discusses “the idea of revival in America and what it means in a Biblical sense.”
“I explain that revival is more than just an experience and cannot be manufactured. It requires a return to our first love, Jesus, and repentance of sin. I also share the story of the prodigal son as an example of revival and how it can only happen among believers, and when it does, it brings the lost to Christ. Additionally, I talk about achieving revival through holiness and how it begins with turning back to the Word of God and a commitment to holy living among believers.”
Hippies Find Answer to Search for Love and Peace
Pastor Chuck Smith’s Daughter Gives Her Thoughts on JESUS REVOLUTION Movie
By Alex Murashko
Pastor Chuck Smith and his wife, Kay, witnessed hippies who were “high” on drugs, rebellious to the status quo, and searching for love and peace. The Smiths’ observations came prior and during the Jesus Movement (late 1960s through early 1970s), and are portrayed in the true-story movie, JESUS REVOLUTION.
Telling the story of the hippies is what the JESUS REVOLUTION movie does best, Smiths’ daughter, Janette (Smith) Manderson recently told Think Eternity.
“If you want to see what it was like 50 years ago, what the culture was like, what the young people were looking for, and why they were so lost, go see the movie,” Manderson said. “The movie also depicts the answer to the yearning in their hearts and deep in their souls.”
