A False Sense of Security HHM July 21, 2002

Pastor Jim Parisi

This week’s message is a hard one for me to deliver

It is on a subject that touches me to the core

You say pastor what could move you so.

There is a place in my heart… that this subject just hits at the core of my being

I wanted to come here today and have one of those loving feel good messages …… are great

You know the ones that make Goose bumps go up and down your spine.

I was wrestling in the spirit over this message

I asked if I could get a pass this week on it and preach the happy time one this week. When it would be better for me

Then God Spoke ….He spoke to me clear as a bell ringing in a courtyard


I never said it would be easy to deliver truth to my people

You will not always like what has to be said

It isn’t just for you it’s for my church and its people”

Sometimes it is hard to stand here and deliver this kind of word

So please bear with me through this message because it has grieved my heart so

This week the unimaginable happened Again …to a parent this time in Orange County.

A Little Girl, A child who had its whole life to live ahead of her…

At 5 years old Was taken, Lured from the security of her doorstep

and sacrificed because of the carnal nature of one individual,

The Sinful nature of a Predator.

and, I use the word predator for a reason

This killer … this fiend, stole away the innocence of a Child

He took the posture of sin personified

A position of pure evil

Moreover, it came from deep within his Black Heart

Make no mistake here.. This was well planed out

Mark 7:18-23 Jesus Speaks

….Do you not perceive that whatever enters a man from outside cannot defile him, 19 because it does not enter his heart but his stomach, and is eliminated, thus purifying all foods?" 20 And He said, "What comes out of a man, that defiles a man. 21 For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, 22 thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. 23 All these evil things come from within and defile a man."

All this evil comes out of the Heart of Man

I don’t think there is any greater pain then the loss of a Child

The loss of a mate… a parent… a sibling…

None of these compare to the pain of this kind of loss….

We all have to pray for the Spirit of God to minister to this family.

There will be a long healing process

Pray for them Church….pray for these families

Ask the Lord to ease there pain

We from last year after 9 - 11 we have been shaken to the core

All that we once understood is now different

We have gotten to a place we even believe our front yards are safe

Havens of solitude… because we control the gates to enter and exit

You can not tell me different….. or why do we leave our children un-attended in them

No one in there right mind would leave there child un-attended in a place they felt they weren’t safe or this could happen to them

These people and thousands like them do this everyday

They Walk to the counters in a store and lose sight of their child

or as simple as leave them in a shopping cart and walk down an isle to get a product..

Let me tell you church the enemy wants your children and your families

If he can take them, he can stop the move of God

If you cannot hold their hand, or be with them 24 /7

Then hold there safety in prayer

Cover them in prayer day and night ask the Lord to protect there steps

TO keep them from harm

Church we are all someone’s Family natural or not

Our church is a family too. A family of believers

No one got here with out a Mother or father

I am starting to realize that this lure of the enemy can only get worse quickly IF WE LET IT

The devil uses this deception to give us a false sense of security

I’m hear to tell you today that there is only one… you can put your trust in

There is only one …..that is true and proven

There is only one that you can put your life in His hands and not fear the evil entering your home

That is the person of Jesus Christ
