#HarvestSoCal 2019 is in the Books – WOW!

This was my Facebook post Sunday night after watching HarvestSoCal2019:

Tonight’s #HarvestSoCal has been amazing! Wonderful music by @philwickham @newsboys and @christomlin – the powerful message from @greglaurie was simple and so enlightening, but the highlight was the THOUSANDS who just gave their lives to Jesus.

“I keep doing these crusades year after year because I want to take as many people with me to Heaven as I possibly can.”

Greg Laurie

Harvest 2019

100,000 attend California crusade focused on God and country

Thousands of people chose to give their lives to Jesus this weekend at an Anaheim, Calif. crusade in Angel Stadium that honored God and country.

At the conclusion of each night of the SoCal Harvest event held Aug. 23-25 that saw over 100,000 people attend, Pastor Greg Laurie delivered a message called “Happiness, hope, and heaven.”

He shared the gospel, similar to what Evangelist Billy Graham, who called Laurie the “evangelist of the future,” did for so many years.

“Don’t put your hope in technology. Don’t put your hope in material things. Don’t put your hope in politicians. Don’t put your hope even in religion,” Laurie, senior pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship of California and Hawaii, he told the crowd each night of the three-day event. “Hope has a name, and it’s Jesus Christ, and he is here with us tonight, and he is ready to change the course of your life.”

With fireworks in the evening sky, the baseball stadium’s scoreboards lit up with the words: “Welcome to the family of God.”

More than 8,000 people made the decision to follow Jesus, bringing the grand total to half a million since the first one held in 1990.

On the first night, followers held a military appreciation ceremony and unfurled a massive American flag across the outfield as Brennley Brown, a finalist on “The Voice,” sang “God Bless America.” Former Navy SEAL and actor Remi Adeleke offered an opening prayer.

Throughout the crusade, attendees worshipped with Jeremy Camp, Chris Tomlin, Newsboys, Lecrae and Phil Wickham, to name a few.

The 30th annual SoCal Harvest Crusade was the kick-off event of Harvest’s 2020 Vision to launch a “Jesus Revolution” through crusades in southern California and Boise, Idaho. The tour is to end with a crusade in 2021 at Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park, currently under construction. The Harvest team has aimed to reach over 1 million people and see 100,000 professions of faith through the crusades.

“I keep doing these crusades year after year because I want to take as many people with me to Heaven as I possibly can,” Laurie said.

Listen To Brennley Brown Cover Christian Classic “I Wish We’d All Been Ready”

Pastor Greg Laurie has been in a  message series about the 1970s Jesus Revolution based on his latest book of the same name. In the sermon series Pastor Laurie has talked about many different aspects of the last great religious movement in America including the music from that era. Last week former Voice contestant Brennley Brown performed a cover of a popular song by legendary contemporary Christian artist Larry Norman called “I wish we’d all Been Ready”. The song has been covered by many artists over the years but we’re sure you’ve never heard of a version with such conviction as Brennley Brown’s. The lyrics to the song are based on the Christian belief of the rapture.

Lyrics

Life was filled with guns and war
And everyone got trampled on the floor
I wish we’d all been ready
Children died, the days grew cold
A piece of bread could buy a bag of gold
I wish we’d all been ready
There’s no time to change your mind
The Son has come and you’ve been left behind

A man and wife asleep in bed
She hears a noise and turns her head, he’s gone
I wish we’d all be ready
Two men walking up a hill
One disappears and one’s left standing still
I wish we’d all been ready
There’s no time to change your mind
The Son has come and you’ve been left behind

Life was filled with guns and war
And everyone got trampled on the floor
I wish we’d all been ready
Children died, the days grew cold
A piece of bread could buy a bag of gold
I wish we’d all been ready
There’s no time to change your mind
How could you have been so blind
The Father spoke, the demons dined
The Son has come and you’ve been left behind

So Cal Harvest – 2018 Is This Weekend

You may have read about the controversy involving billboards for this event being removed because of complaints about Pastor Greg Laurie holding a Bible on the billboard. I’ve got to say, Pastor Laurie handled the situation in such a Christ-like manner. Here is the picture of the “offensive” billboard and that is followed by the information about this weekend’s huge event.
