Street Evangelist Tom Alexander At California’s State Capitol And Praying For The State’s Governor And Political Leaders.

CHURCH ON THE STREETS. That’s what it feels like every time Street Evangelist Tom Alexander begins a cross walk throughout one of Bakersfield’s official neighborhoods, as well as throughout the hundreds of other California cities he’s walked the cross in. Whether it’s our nation’s second largest city, Los Angeles, or a popular coastal city like Santa Monica, people respond whenever they see the 10 foot, 60-pound cross coming their way. Cross Walk California has resulted in hundreds of thousands of men, women and children not only seeing the cross on their residential streets, on their way to work, at the school they attend, or hoisted upright at their city’s police station as Tom prays for our thin blue line; but thousands have also rededicated their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ! Just as true, scores of thousands have come up to Tom and the cross and asked for prayer for themselves, for loved ones, or for the nation in general. Countless numbers have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior right there on the streets. And, of course, Church On The Streets is always just a prayer away from great revival taking place in that city! Continue reading to learn about CROSS WALK AMERICA: PRAY USA

CROSS WALK ALASKA Part Four: My Last Day In The Last Frontier

Posted by Tom Alexander on August 15th, 2019

There is no stronger witness for Jesus than youth and young adults who are aflame and on fire and with a readiness to share God’s Good News to all.

As shared in Part Three, meeting up with Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU) summer missionaries  during July’s Alaska Cross Walk was quite a blessing and inspiration. Much like the YWAM (Youth With A Mission) staff and students I had met during the Hawaii Cross Walk in May, I found these young adults to be on fire for the Lord Jesus Christ.

WALKING THE WALK AND TALKING THE TALK

These CRU summer missionaries took up the 10-foot cross naturally and with a zeal and excitement in Christ that expressed to all around them their love for God. Since the Alaska Cross Walk, I have made Facebook friends with many of these young people, just as I did with the YWAMers in Honolulu. I understand just how important it is for God to raise up a new generation of street evangelists, street preachers and street missionaries who are not afraid to share their faith in Christ with any and all people they meet on the streets—or anywhere else for that matter.

These young missionaries were the real thing! And as much as I would have loved to spend another week in Juneau just to fellowship with these young people and walk the cross with them throughout the capital city’s neighborhoods and streets, this would be my last day in Juneau.

CROSS WALK ALASKA Part Three THE CROSS WALKS BEGIN

Posted by Tom Alexander on August 1st, 2019

I have been to 41 states and state capitals, but I fell in love with this city and its people. God has blessed this entire area with captivating terrain and beauty.

PRAYING FOR ALASKA’S ELECTED POLITICAL LEADERS

God’s number one goal for me whenever I walk the cross in any state and especially at each state capital is for me to hoist that 10-foot, 60-pound cross upright at that state’s capitol mall and pray hard and long for every elected official, and especially its governor and state senators and representatives.

God isn’t concerned about that elected official’s political party. Rather, He is very interested in the heart of that state official. Because if  that elected official’s heart isn’t right with God, the people will suffer, and there will be chaos and confusion in that state.

No matter the state, my prayer is always the same: “LORD God Almighty, bless these elected officials with the knowledge of Your will for their lives, and let them make decisions that glorify You and Your righteousness. If they are not willing to govern in righteousness and truth, replace them with those who will.”

BLESSED ARE THE PEOPLE WHOSE GOD IS THE LORD

Praying hard and long for Alaska’s elected officials at the capitol building.

The Alaska capitol building’s main entrance was under repair, so I walked slightly to the side of the entrance, hoisted the large cross upright by the replica Liberty Bell and prayed for Governor Mike Dunleavy, that (1) his heart would be right with God concerning every decision he makes, no matter what it would take; (2) that he would listen to God’s promptings, as well as being sensitive to the needs and the wishes of the people; and (3) that Governor Dunleavy would be a witness of God’s great love and concerned for all the people of Alaska.

As is my custom, I prayed at each entrance, asking the living God to pour out His Spirit of Righteousness upon all elected individuals and throughout the entire political arena of the state of Alaska, and that each would give their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ.

I pray loud and long, and people do stand around and listen as I pray. After praying, I always beckon onlookers to come over so I can share why I am praying, as well as the purpose of the cross walk. Often, I get to pray with men and women who have been praying for their elected leaders and their state for years, and who are very happy to join with me in prayer. Such was the case in Juneau.

CROSS WALK ALASKA Part Two THE CROSS AND THE HOTEL

Posted by Tom Alexander on July 31st, 2019

GOD’S GRACE LIKE RAIN POURING OUT UPON THE CITY OF JUNEAU

Grace isn’t just a salvation gift of unmerited favor from God. It is also a divine Holy Spirit empowerment and enduement that gives believers both the desire and ability to do God’s will.

The 10-foot, 60-pound cross was now constructed. Home Depot in Juneau became part of the Alaska cross walk when the hardware store allowed me to build the cross inside their premises. As mentioned in Part One, two employees even helped in the construction of the cross!

A “Godincidence” took place immediately after I walked the cross to outside the store’s exit. To my complete surprise, a taxi drove up at the very moment I left the store. You can read about this genuine and awesome angelic encounter in Part One.  And, although I have had two other powerful encounters with LORD Sabaoth’s “ministering spirits sent by God to aid those who are heirs to salvation” (Hebrews 1:14), this “angelophony,” or visible manifestation of an angel of God, was completely unexpected.

But this is so God! And this is God’s grace to His people in time of great need. I was willing to walk the cross seven miles to my downtown hotel room. But God knew I needed His help. SO HE SENT THAT HELP.

GOD MUST REALLY BE WITH YOU

At Home Depot and getting ready to transport the large cross to my downtown motel.

Jeanetta was the taxi cab driver. Told her my wife’s name was Jeanette and she smiled really big. As we drove toward the motel, Jeanetta shared that she was 69-years-old, had just lost her husband two years previously, and to keep herself busy she took up driving a taxi fourteen hours a day, five days a week. On the weekends, she visited her grandchildren.

Of course, we talked about the young man she had dropped off at Home Depot. “He was an angel, you know.” Jeanetta’s voice quivered with excitement mixed with reverent fear. “He told me he was supposed to meet someone at Home Depot.” I was still caught up in the Spirit, so I just listened. “God must really be with you,” Jeanetta continued. “And you have come here to pray for our city and state. That’s awesome!”

Jeanetta did most of the talking as we drove to my downtown hotel. I was very content just to take in everything that had taken place, a big smile on my “faith.” We reached my motel, unloaded the cross in the middle of the busy street, and I reached in my pocket to pay her. “It’s already taken care of,” she informed me, her smile just getting bigger and bigger. “You are doing more for our city than what money can buy.” I stood speechless, smiling all the while. “God bless you with a very successful mission.” With that, Jeanetta jumped into her cab and took off.

Franklin Street is Juneau’s main street. It was overflowing with traffic. But I just stood there in awe. Read the rest of this entry »

CROSS WALK ALASKA Part One BUILDING THE CROSS

Posted by Tom Alexander on July 29th, 2019

WALKING AND TRAVELING BY FAITH, NOT SIGHT

State and State Capital #41. The Last Frontier.

On July 26 as my flight landed at Juneau International Airport from Seattle and via Los Angeles around 10:15 P.M., I had plenty on my mind. My number one concern was, How and where was I going to construct the large cross for the 5-day cross walk?

The cross would be just like the one I had made in Honolulu, Hawaii back in May, a replica of the 10-foot, 60-pound cross that Jeanette and I have brought to thirty-nine of our nation’s contiguous states so far. Just like in Hawaii, I couldn’t bring the large cross on my flight. But unlike Hawaii, I didn’t have a place to construct the Alaska cross. In Hawaii, I stayed at the large YWAM (Youth With A Mission) compound). Here, I was staying at a downtown Juneau hotel.

Taking a taxi to my hotel room, I unpacked before calling it a night. God’s plan for me of how and where building the cross would take place began to unfold in my mind as I drifted into a very pleasant sleep. The last thing I thought of before falling asleep is a phrase that encourages me every time I read or think of it: FAITH DOESN’T MAKE SENSE. IT MAKES MIRACLES.

THE FULL PANOPLY OF GOD AND MUCH FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT: A SOUL-DIER OF THE CROSS

To be strong in the Lord and in the Power of His might, we must put on and take up the full panoply of God—and eat much fruit of the Spirit.

I awoke at 5:oo to an early and beautiful light fog and misty-rain Juneau  morning. It was already light. After showering, I ate the breakfast food my life-wife, Jeanette, had packed for me, read my Bible, and spiritually put on and took up the 7-part panoply (armor and armaments) of God as detailed in Ephesians 6 and then spiritually ate much fruit of the Spirit (the nine fruit of the Spirit mentioned in Galatians 5). Anytime and every time I walk the cross, I first put on and take up the full panoply of God and eat much fruit of the Spirit to prepare myself for the upcoming battle for souls in the diverse and large fields of souls.

Jesus Himself shared in John 15 the four degrees of fruit-bearing: no fruit, fruit, more fruit and much fruit. The full panoply of God is extremely powerful but unless I had an abundance of agape-love pouring out of my Spirit, I have noticed that I sometimes come across as an uncaring, insensitive and brash believer rather than  a caring, compassionate and sensitive street evangelist. I ALWAYS FEEL THE DIFFERENCE EACH TIME I FIRST ARMOR UP AND EAT MUCH FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT.

THE DIVINE PLAN OF GOD: LET’S DO THIS!!

Brought these with me. All I needed now was the wood and a place to make the large cross.

As always, God gave me His plan. To a degree, it didn’t make any sense at all. But then again…faith doesn’t make sense; it makes miracles! But I knew where I was going this morning. After contacting a a taxi service, I waited downstairs and outside my hotel. With the cross wheel assembly and cross-making hardware in hand, I took in the street scene as I waited for the cab.

As I waited, I noticed a young man a few few feet away who also seemed to be waiting for someone. I waved and greeted him. “Beautiful morning in Juneau.” He smiled and nodded in agreement. Clean cut and about thirty-years-old, he seemed hesitant to take up a conversation. So I gave him the thumbs-up signal and waited for my cab to arrive, all the while noticing that he just stood there, occasionally looking at me and then turning away.

My cab arrived, so I waved at the young man once more, then hopped into the taxi. After sharing with the driver my destination, for some reason I looked around toward where the young man was standing. NOBODY THERE!! That is odd, I thought, as the cab entered the street and began the seven-mile journey to Home Depot.

CROSS WALK HAWAII (Part Four) Waikiki Beach Part Two—The Cross Walk With YWAM Staffers

Posted by Tom Alexander on June 26th, 2019

YWAM staffers, Billy, Ethan, Jessie and Paul load up the cross in preparation for the three mile journey to Waikiki Beach.

The Friday morning solo cross walk of Waikiki Beach was awesome, and I especially liked the opportunity of walking the cross all the way back to the YWAM base after cross walking Waikiki.  After the three hour Waikiki Beach cross walk, the trek back to the Base was a very long and uphill 3-mile cross walk. But I made it! And this also gave me the opportunity to pray for many individuals as I walked that long trek back to the Youth With A Mission (YWAM) base.

Because the University of Hawaii  wasn’t far from the WYAM base, the walk back gave me the opportunity to walk throughout the large college and pray for Great Awakening and Great Revival to breakout among the popular college’s 18,000 students.

HALLELUJAH HONOLULU AND THE WARMTH OF THE SON

Saturday came fast. Loading up the cross on the SUV (like a surfboard), four YWAM staff members—Billy, Ethan, Jessie and Paul—and I headed for Waikiki Beach and a little early morning cross walking safari.  Dawn Patrol for Jesus! Other YWAMers would meet up with us later. I was looking forward to watching these young missionaries walk the cross and pray for their city.  Although my body and muscles were still tired from the extremely long cross walk the day before, their energy and enthusiasm quickened my spirit. And besides that, I knew they would be toting the 60-pound cross instead of me!

Of course, the first thing we did was walk the cross back out to the end of a different jetty than Friday’s cross walk, hoist the 60-pound, 10-foot cross upright, and ask God to send forth Great Revival and Great Awakening throughout the entire state of Hawaii. As the warm waves crashed against the cement jetty just below our feet, I could feel the power of God surge like a mighty ocean wave and sweep across the Bay. Today, the Shekinah Glory and Resurrection Power of Jesus Christ would be displayed mightily throughout Waikiki Beach and Honolulu.

YOU NEED TO DO THIS IN NORWAY, TOO!

YWAM staff member Paul Harder walking the cross down the Waikiki Beach boardwalk.

Billy, Ethan, Jessie and Paul all took turns walking the cross along the crowded beach boardwalk. Usually I’m the one toting the cross, so this gave me the opportunity to observe individual’s reactions. I must say that the majority of people smiled and said very positive things about the sight of a large cross being carried by these young missionaries.

I handed out 2-sided tracts about the cross walk to people passing by. A young woman (who was a flight attendant) and her mom from Norway just couldn’t believe the sight. We talked several minutes about the cross walk. Both are Christians, and their joy in Christ was very apparent. The mom kept saying, “You need to do this in Norway!”

After praying with them for Great Revival to break out here as well as Norway, I caught up with the cross walkers, who seemed to be enjoying this Saturday morning prayer walk. Both the beach and the boardwalk were full of vacationers, tourists and residents, and the YWAMers were busy handing out tracts and talking to individuals about Jesus the Messiah.

There isn’t any doubt at all that the living God was smiling as He looked down from Heaven at the sight of these young missionaries taking turns walking the cross and sharing their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ with men, women and children who need to know that Jesus is the only way, truth and life!

CROSS WALK HAWAII (Part Three): Waikiki Beach Part One—The Solo Walk

Posted by Tom Alexander on June 20th, 2019

Waikiki Bay and Beach. A great day to walk the cross and talk about the first Water Walker.

State and state capital #40.

The entire time (eight days) I was in Honolulu I never had the time or the opportunity to get wet! Just too busy walking the cross and praying for the entire state of Hawaii. BUT…I did get to go to Waikiki Beach on two days. Both days were for cross walking and sharing God’s Good News about Jesus Christ to the endless hordes of residents, vacationers and tourists who were able to jump into the beautiful and crystal blue waters of Waikiki Bay.

Day one at Waikiki Beach was a solo walk. Billy Kyllonen, director of School Of Ministry and Evangelism (SOME) for Honolulu WYAM, was kind enough to load up the cross atop his SUV and drive me to Waikiki Beach.

IF EVERYBODY HAD AN OCEAN

Praying at Waikiki Beach for Honolulu’s 400,000 souls, as well as Hawaii’s 1.5 million souls,

As a former surfer, I was naturally drawn to the beauty of Waikiki Beach’s pristine and clear waters as well as the large manmade jetty. And, of course, I had every intention of walking the cross to the end of the jetty, hoisting it upright, and praying for Honolulu’s 400,000 souls—and that’s exactly the first thing I did!

Scores of beachgoers stopped what they were doing and watched as I walked the cross to the end of the jetty, probably wondering what in the world was going on. The first thing that struck me was the smiles on the faces of all these sun bathers and swimmers as I slowly walked the cross.

Time seemed to stand still as I walked to the end of the jetty, hoisted the cross upright and prayed for Great Revival and Great Awakening to break out throughout Waikiki Beach, Honolulu and all of Hawaii. I prayed loud and long, and I sensed that many people were not only watching, but they were listening as well.

TENNESSEE VACATIONERS PRAY FOR HAWAII

As is my custom, I pointed the cross North, then East, then West, and finally South (Good NEWS) as I prayed, asking God Almighty to send forth His Shekinah Glory, Resurrection Power and Spirit of Grace & Supplication throughout the Hawaiian Islands and bring thousands of souls to Him.

This vacationing Christian couple from Tennessee prayed loud and long for Hawaii’s 1.5 million souls.

After praying I spoke with several people about the cross walk and why I was here. A Christian couple from Tennessee  approached me and asked if they could take pictures of themselves with the cross. Of course. Then I asked if they would join me in praying for Hawaii’s 1.5 million souls. They readily agreed. Both the husband and the wife prayed powerfully and sincerely for Hawaii. What was so awesome is that they also prayed loud and long as well.

We had a great time afterwards, talking about the Lord and the fact that I had walked the cross in Tennessee and its state capital the previous year.  People from Tennessee are very friendly, and we had a wonderful time fellowshipping. Read the rest of this entry »

CROSS WALK HAWAII (Part Two): State Capitol & Downtown Honolulu

Posted by Tom Alexander on May 29th, 2019

THE CAPITOL MALL AND DOWNTOWN HONOLULU

The Sign On The Newly Constructed Cross Says it All.

I was looking forward to walking the cross at the world renowned Waikiki Beach with YWAM staff members. But day two in Hawaii would be a solo cross walk at the Capitol Mall and downtown Honolulu. For reasons that are His alone, God always requires me to initially walk the cross at each capital alone. I don’t even ask Him why. I just obey His edit, although I do have some ideas as to why.

At 8:30 in the morning, YWAM’s Billy Kyllonen graciously helped me load up the 10-foot, 60-pound cross on the rack of his SUV and then drove me downtown and a few blocks from the Capitol building. We prayed that hearts would be open to the message of the Cross and then I headed toward the nearby huge and beautiful park, where several homeless people had erected tents.

I was surprised at the large number of homeless people living in Honolulu.

GOD’S GOT HIS PEOPLE EVERYWHERE—EVEN ON THE STREETS

Homeless But Not Help-less—Just A Bump In My Life.

Because I like to hoist the cross upright at strategic spots in each city and pray long and hard for the salvation and safety of the residents of the city, this huge park was the ideal area to do this. As I hoisted the cross upright, a man’s voice filled the air. “Wow! You’re praying for our city, aren’t you?! I turned to look.

Mike was homeless. But he also held down two part-time jobs, including working at a nearby church doing maintenance work. Saving up money to eventually get a place to live, he was a happy and gentle soul who offered me a bottle of water and food. “You want to pray with me for the people living in Honolulu?” I asked. “And the homeless, too, please!” Mike added. We prayed, then talked awhile about Hawaii, Jesus Christ and homelessness in Honolulu.

Mike considered the homeless his ministry as well. He shared that he was always praying with and taking to the homeless about God’s love for them. Truly, God’s got an army in Hawaii. Though some may not fit the description of what a Christian looks like, Mike and so many others I met during this cross walk were not afraid to share their faith in Jesus, even if life was being kinda rough on them right now.

A MEDICAL DOCTOR’S E-MAIL TO ME AFTER THE CROSS WALK

Honolulu Has A Large Population Of Homeless People.

After having a great conversation with Mike, I headed toward the Capitol Mall. The large number of tents scattered throughout the large park as well as throughout Honolulu’s huge Chinatown neighborhood that I noticed as we drove past on our way to downtown stayed on my mind. Later that day and after returning to the YWAM base, I received an e-mail from a Christian medical doctor I had spoken with as I walked the cross toward the Capitol building. This is part of his e-mail to me:

“Tom, it was a pleasure to meet you this morning. What an amazing effort you are putting forth for God’s Kingdom! Thank you for your efforts and your kindness! Will you pray for the homeless here in Honolulu? The cost of living here is extremely high so our homeless population consists of many people with mental health problems, addiction and substance abuse problems, but also many people who are actually working but cannot afford housing. It is not uncommon to see homeless men and women living in tents in the sidewalks brushing their teeth in the morning and  dressing for work.”

This compassionate M.D. and I would communicate several more times throughout my stay in Hawaii. His main emphasis was Matthew 25 and Jesus’ words to those who met and who would not meet the needs of hurting individuals, including the homeless.

THANK YOU FOR PRAYING FOR OUR ELECTED LEADERS

Praying Loud & Long At Hawaii’s State Capitol Building.

After walking several blocks, I reached the beautiful Capitol Mall. Hoisting the large cross upright, I began praying for Hawaii’s governor, lieutenant governor, two state senators and twenty-five state representatives, that each one would not only accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, but that each one would follow His will concerning every decision they would make during their terms of office.

As is my custom, I pointed the cross North, then East, then West and then South (NEWS) as I prayed, asking the Lord of the Harvest to send forth His  Holy Spirit and Shekinah Glory throughout the entire state and reveal Himself strong to Hawaii’s 1.5 million souls. I also asked the God of glory to send forth the Spirit of Great Revival, Great Awakening and Great Godly Sorrow throughout the Aloha State—and to begin this great revival right here at ground zero!

As I finished praying, a young woman walked up to me, her face filled with great happiness and joy. “Thank you for praying for our state!” she shouted loud for all to hear. “I am a Christian and I praise God for what you are doing.” We spoke for several minutes, then I asked if she would join me in prayer as well. She prayed a powerful prayer to our Heavenly Father, that the people of Hawaii would accept Jesus as their Savior and that the elected leaders would also give their lives to the Lord. The presence of the LORD was very strong and I knew that God would, indeed, answer our prayers for the sake of the people of Hawaii—no matter how long it would take!

CROSS WALK HAWAII (Part One): Constructing The Cross For The Cross Walk

Posted by Tom Alexander on May 28th, 2019

“They will look upon Me whom they have pierced…”

STATE AND STATE CAPITAL CROSS WALK # 40.

As a young man and surfer, I had always dreamed of visiting Hawaii and riding those huge waves off Oahu’s world famous North Shore. But when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior in February, 1973 I gave up the longboard for the long cross and The Endless Summer for The Endless Easter (eternal life).

Forty-six years later, here I was on my way to Honolulu and Waikiki Beach, not to surf, but to lug a very large cross throughout this capital city and world famous beach and to pray loud and long for God to send forth Great Revival, Great Awakening and Great Godly Sorrow that produces genuine repentance throughout this our nation’s 50th state.

HONOLULU’S YOUTH WITH A MISSION

YWAM Honolulu’s Billy Kyllonen Constructing The New Cross.

Because I could not bring my well-used and well-traveled 10-foot, 60-pound cross on the plane trip to Honolulu, I decided to construct a new one once arriving in Honolulu, with the idea of leaving the large cross with YWAM Honolulu (Youth With A Mission), the worldwide missionary and evangelism group I would be staying with throughout the eight-day cross walk. It was my prayer that these young missionaries would take up the cross once I returned to Bakersfield, California and begin a cross-walking ministry throughout the entire state of Hawaii.

However, I did bring the 12″ bike wheel and yoke assembly with me on the plane. Whenever I construct a large cross, I visit Goodwill centers, purchase old 12″ bicycles, take the front tire yoke off the old bike and then secure the freshly painted yoke with new tire and tube on the cross as a way of helping me walk the 60-pound cross for several miles each and every cross walk throughout America’s state capitals, as well as California cities and local cross walks.

CONSTRUCTING THE NEW CROSS

After arriving in Honolulu and at the YWAM base and enjoying a good night’s sleep, YWAM’s director of the School Of Missions and Evangelism (SOME), Billy Kyllonen, drove me to the local Home Depot, to purchase two 10′ by 4″ x 4″ Douglas Fir wood beams to construct the new cross.

YWAM had all the tools needed to construct the new cross. Thanks to Mike Coates, an intelligent and well organized  Maintenance Director, this cross-making project would be done right and the cross would last for many, many years.

The Finished Cross. Billy, His Wife Beth, And Their Littlest Of Six Children.

Because I wanted this cross to be YWAM’s cross after I returned home, I asked Billy to construct the cross and he eagerly began work on the cross. Billy did an amazing and wonderful job constructing the new cross. All I did was provide verbal instructions. Usually I stain the cross a golden brown color and then waterproof it with a sealer. But since  I was going to walk the cross throughout the Capitol Mall and downtown the next day, we decided to forgo staining it until a later date.

THE CROSS ANOINTED AND APPOINTED FOR SERVICE

After completing construction of the new cross, I asked Billy and several YWAM staff members to gather around the cross, hoist it upright and to ask the LORD of the Harvest to anoint and appoint the cross for His service and for the Kingdom of God, that everyone who looked at this cross would see the ONE who was crucified for their sins and come to Him to receive forgiveness of sins and new life.

Hawaii has a rich Christian heritage, but because of so much spiritual darkness in the land (as it in in all our states), fresh Great Awakening amongst believers and Great Revival throughout Hawaii’s 1.5 million souls is the only way this looming spiritual darkness can be turned back, as God’s light breaks through and penetrates the darkened hearts and souls of individuals with His amazing love and grace.

YWAMers Praying For Great Revival And Great Awakening.

These young people know how to pray.

As I took pictures of these young missionaries while they prayed. I knew that God would not only anoint and appoint the cross for His glory, but that He was sparking anew and afresh the spirits of these young third day believers with a renewed zeal to reach their world for Jesus!

GOD’S REALLY GOOD NEWS TO HAWAII

I also knew that, even thought they may not have fully understood what they were doing by pointing the cross North, then East, then West, and then South (NEWS) as they prayed, God was going to send forth the Spirit of Great Revival throughout the entire state of Hawaii and reveal to thousands and thousands of men, women and children His GOOD NEWS of salvation in Christ Jesus. And that these young people would be part of this Great Awakening throughout Hawaii!

Part Two Shares The Capitol Mall Cross Walk.

 

CROSS WALK AMERICA: PRAY USA

Posted by Tom Alexander on February 8th, 2019

2019 CROSS WALKS

In 2019 Street Evangelist Tom Alexander will take the long cross to Hawaii, Alaska and Mexico. Hawaii will be state #40 that I have cross walked at each state capital and major cities of these 40 states as well. Alaska will be state #41. In 2020, I will bring the cross to the nine remaining Eastern Seaboard states, as well as taking the cross to The White House, Capitol Hill and the Supreme Court, hoisting that 10-foot, 60-pound cross upright and praying for great revival, great awakening and great repentance throughout the land.

BUILDING TWO CROSSES FOR THESE TWO STATE CROSS WALKS

Because I have to fly to both Hawaii and Alaska, I will not be able to bring the cross. so I will build a cross at each capital city, walk the cross throughout the city and state, and then leave the cross with someone would will pledge to take up the cross and regularly walk the cross and pray for that state. My goal in Christ is get one individual from each of our nation’s 50 states who will each began a cross walking ministry throughout his respective state.

THE 2020 CROSS WALKS

I will walk the cross throughout the remaining nine Eastern Seaboard States, including New York, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, Delaware, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Maine, as well as Washington D.C. two more times during this very important national election year. This includes cross walks at the White House, Capitol Hill and the Supreme Court of America.

CROSS WALK MEXICO

Between the two state cross walks in 2019, I will also begin cross walking Mexico, starting at Tijuana and eventually bringing the long cross to Mexico City, as well as bringing the cross to other California cities. So far, I have walked the cross in 140 California cities, and will repeat cross walks in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, Oakland and San Diego as well.

I am excited about 2019’s cross walks, including this initial ministry incursion into Mexico. My prayer is that hundreds of thousands of Mexicans will accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and Lord as well in the next couple of cross walking years throughout this great nation.

IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!

God is not willing that anyone should perish or be separated from Him for eternity. He proved His love for humanity when He sent Jesus Christ, His only Son, to die on the cross for our collective sins. God’s message of love is quite simple. John 3:16 tells us the simple yet everlasting message of eternal life in Christ Jesus.

These cross walks are all about sharing God’s love in Christ, and praying for great revival, great awakening and great repentance that produces godly sorrow. The love of God is greater than our sin. His grace is amazing. And His gift of eternal life is free to all—simply by accepting Jesus Christ as the Savior who died on the cross for our sins, confessing Jesus as Lord, and believing in our hearts that God raised Him from the dead, which is the proof that God is the giver and Lord of eternal life.

Why not give your life to Jesus today! If you have questions, contact me at Tom@WalkTheCross.com. John 3:16 explains it all concerning His amazing love for you and me!.

THE COMING GREAT REVIVAL IN AMERICA

2020 will prove to be much more than a major political election year. The LORD of angel armies has revealed that the start of nationwide great revival, great awakening and great godly sorrow that produces godly repentance will commence starting in January. The seeds of salvation have been planted by third day believers all across our nation, and harvest time is now upon us.

This great revival will not take place because of America’s righteousness, but because of the grievous sins of collective America. Such is the love of God! In spite of our collective wickedness, the God of truth and justice continues to have great compassion on the United Sates of America. Let us all begin a season of prayer for the 320 millions souls living in our nation!
