A “beach revival” is underway in Southern California in what some say signals the beginning of a new Jesus movement.
Over 200 Christians recently gathered on the shore in Huntington Beach to worship God, hear the Gospel and learn how to share the Good News with others.
It first began as a vision God gave to its organizers, Parker and Jessi Green, four years ago. In the vision, the couple saw thousands of people being baptized along Huntington Beach Pier and large numbers of people receiving Christ, according to the Saturate OC website.
In January, Jessi Green sensed God say to her that He was shaking everything that could be shaken and that it would feel chaotic at first, she said in an interview Monday with The Christian Post.
“It would be like a threshing floor movement where God was going to start to separate the wheat from the tares,” she said.
Jessi Green wrote down what she sensed, having no idea of the challenges that 2020 would present.
As part of California’s response to COVID-19, on Monday, Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered a second lockdown mandating churches in 30 counties to again cancel in-person worship services as the state continues its ban on singing in churches that are allowed to remain open with restrictions in place.
Four years ago, Green and her husband were living in New York City and partaking in a 21-day fast that their church was doing. During a worship session amid this three-week fasting period, she had a vision of thousands of people being baptized at Huntington Beach. So many, in fact, that people were turning around and baptizing each other.
The vision was so overwhelming she wasn’t even sure what to make of it — particularly if it was theologically advisable for that manner of baptizing to occur.
“The next revival would come through the equipping of the saints,” she sensed the Holy Spirit say to her.
