The Jesus movement has been from everlasting (Ps. 90:2). Jesus was moving in the creation of the universe (John 1:3). Jesus was moving in Genesis 3:15.
More recently there was something called “The Jesus Movement.”
“The Jesus movement was a movement in Christianity beginning on the West Coast of the United States in the late 1960s and early 1970s and spreading primarily throughout North America, Europe, and Central America, before subsiding by the late 1980s. Members of the movement were called Jesus people, or Jesus freaks.”
I don’t usually rely on Wiki for my information but they do a pretty good job on THE JESUS MOVEMENT HERE.
I grew up in Southern California and graduated from high school in 1976. Calvary Chapel in Costa Mesa was a bit of a drive for me but I tried to make it there weekly for awhile. I guess one could say I was in the middle of it all. I have some great memories. On the other hand. many who were involved in the “movement” are not followers of Jesus today. Churches, including the one in Costa Mesa, have since had problems.
Despite the problems within many churches today, the Jesus movement continues. Many young people are seeing the vanity of life spoken of by the teacher in Ecclesiastes, and know there has to be more to life than the American dream. As a teen, I watched many “successful” adults spend their New Year’s Eve drinking themselves senseless. “This is how they celebrate life?” I questioned. I already knew the Gospel message as I was raised by great Christian role models. Being raised by great Christian role models doesn’t make one a Christian. I decided then to spend my life seeking the truth.
I studied major religions and weird stuff. I found that there was one message that dwarfed all others. Everything else seemed strange and, as I’ve learned more, everything else seems strangely the same. The message that continues to outshine, surpass, exceed, outclass, outstrip, outdo, top, and transcend any other is the one found in the Bible.
The Jesus movement will continue forever (Ps. 79:13)
WEEKLY WRAP-UP FOR 4-2-2016April 2, 2016
The week began with a wonderful celebration of the event that saved the world. I posted this in a futile attempt at getting a tiny glimpse of God’s glory:
It Features the Johann Strauss Orchestra and the Harlem Gospel Choir. Next, I posted this:

One of my “jokes of the day” that I share with my students:
What do you call a sleeping dinosaur? (A Tyrannasnoreus Rex)
Then there was this:
Top row: Haeckel’s drawings of several different embryos, showing incredible similarity in their early ‘tailbud’ stage.
Bottom Row: Richardson’s photographs of how the embryos really look at the same stage. (From left: Salmo salar, Cryptobranchus allegheniensis, Emys orbicularis, Gallus gallus, Oryctolagus cuniculus, Homo sapiens.)

Every so often I’ve got to find something sweet. I think MAKING FRIENDS accomplishes this.
Finally, I thought I should mention that The Jesus Movement is going just as planned.
YOU CAN SEE A FEW OF MY THOUGHTS ON THE JESUS MOVEMENT HERE.
I hope you had a great week.
