The Enemy has no grip on you.

Beacon Light Mission

Pastor Jim Parisi 4-07-03

Most people walk in fear that they will never see tomorrow what about then a year from now.

Situations can rob you and put you in the most inopportune circumstances.

No one choose to be poor or with out, but some times it is out of our control they cry from the TV’s and Books we read.

There is a whole sect of society that feeds on others misfortune and gets great satisfaction from it.

I’m not talking about Godly people like the folks here at the mission, who give there lives and time to see other benefit and grow.

I’m talking about people who get great personal pleasure in the fact that others are less then them.

They have never felt the sting of the cold on a lonely winters night.

These are self serving humans who shroud there fears and inadequacies by showing others they are better then the rest of us.

They have evil in there hearts.

The enemy wants to keep you in his sick twisted Grip.

When will he ever learn… that that is a futile attempt to keep Gods people down?

NLT Ps 14: 4-6 - 4 Will those who do evil never learn? They eat up my people like bread; they wouldn’t think of praying to the LORD. 5 Terror will grip them, for God is with those who obey him. 6 The wicked frustrate the plans of the oppressed, but the LORD will protect his people.

For God is with those who obey Him….

Remember that we’ll be back to that again.

These people would look up here and at many others serving the Lord and say how can you back that up Pastor?

I thought you were to be a meek soul… take all we can give you .. till we pound you into the ground and use you as pothole fill.

I tell them SORRY I didn’t get that memo. I don’t know what you are talking about.

I see the men and women of God as warriors read to do battle at any opportune moment.

Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.

The second violent is a people with an ardent ZEAL OR love to serve God

Sounds pretty radical to me…

Some would say Who are you to point the finger and say men are evil?

Ecclesiastes 6:1 - There is an evil which I have seen under the sun, and it is common among men:

Prove your point brother, Ok I will then.


Ok I said it now it’s out of the bag and I have to prove it.

Ohh no I’m going to say more. I just can’t help myself when it comes to speaking about Jesus.

And there are people severing the devil out there…..

Deceiving you so that you can not rise from the gutter in which you are in,

and claim the benefits of Jesus Christ in your life.

Prove it Preacher... Look at the war we are in the Middle East.

The butcher of Baghdad. Saddam Hussein

News flash he is no different then any other little petty evil imp…. he just has a better publicist.

That’s right people believed the Lie that he could bind them

they didn’t believe in Christianity and now they are in Satan’s Hold and it is pure evil there.

The enemy will cry out …. Who are you to Point the finger?

They will use your own scriptures against you…

That’s why you must know the bible and be secure in its understanding.

Prove it they scream what do you base your opinion on?

1Jo 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

By now all you want to know is there a way out of Satan’s grip,

How do I break free from this bondage and get control of my life back.

Think about it who wants to get the control of their life back?

I’m here to bring the Good News see this is my Job to bring the good news.

The news of there is Hope and a future with Him.

I’m here to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

He died on the cross……. He shed His blood…….. and rose again on the 3rd day.

If Are You telling me brother… I’m so dead……… it’s been too long.

I’ll say that’s lunacy. You have only received a lie and are living it right now

Break out of those chains.

Give you life to God
