Pastor David Grisham’s Arrest for Street Preaching to Satanists
September 22, 2014 at 8:14pm
As you may have heard, there was a national uproar over a group of satanists who were planning a demonic “Black Mass” at the Civic Center Music Hall in Oklahoma City this past weekend. That event did indeed take place and our ministry, Repent Amarillo, traveled there to preach the Gospel to these satanists.
Most of the activity that day was centered on the East side of the Music Hall in a small park. Approximately 600-800 Catholics showed up to pray and stand against it. A couple of dozen street preachers (including the five of us) also attended. Mixed into that crowd was a smattering of atheists, pagans, anarchists, environmentalists, and a group from “anonymous”. The Catholics were in full color and pomp and even brought a troupe of bagpipes. There were flags,signs,banners, bagpipes, guitars, and bullhorns. And then too….the media. Quite frankly, it was a circus. Read more
This is the first in a small series of articles that will expose to the light the darkness of witchcraft and Satanism in Amarillo.
I have known about weird things going on at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship building at 4900 Cornell for a long time. As far back as the early 80’s when I was an agnostic, I heard about strange happenings there. My first ex-wife’s (there are three ex-wives BTW) mother had several friends that attended there. One of them openly admitted to being a warlock. Most of them were nature worshipping pagans. Witchcraft is a practice. It is an offshoot of an earth based religion. Wicca is a pagan religion. Witchcraft is a practice that emanated from these false religious practices. There are many Wiccans that attend the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship.
It had been a tradition for quite some time. The Tascosa High School choir would say a prayer before each concert and sing a Christian song every Friday. That tradition is now coming to an end. A complaint was filed with an atheist activist group called Freedom From Religion Foundation. The complaint was most like filed by a former student who graduated last year. I suppose he waited until he had graduated because he lacked the courage to face his classmates after he betrayed them. Kind of like Judas betraying Jesus in the hours of darkness.
In the summer of 2009 the Spirit of the Lord led our team to preach on Polk Street one Saturday night. It was a night like any other night preaching on the streets of Amarillo at bars. Some were hearing what we had to say. Some were not hearing us. Others were angry that we were even out there. A typical night of street witnessing.
After a while, I noticed a man standing on the curb alone. He was just kind of staring into space. I walked over and introduced myself. He said his name was Brian. The Holy Spirit put it on my heart to witness to Brian.
Now when they had gone through the island to Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew whose name was Bar-Jesus,7 who was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man. This man called for Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the word of God.8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so his name is translated) withstood them, seeking to turn the proconsul away from the faith.9 Then Saul, who also is called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him
10 and said, “O full of all deceit and all fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, will you not cease perverting the straight ways of the Lord?
11 “And now, indeed, the hand of the Lord is upon you, and you shall be blind, not seeing the sun for a time.” And immediately a dark mist fell on him, and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand. Read more
This Christmas day I find myself reflecting on the birth of our Savior. I find myself thinking on God’s word and what was meant by our Father by ” Peace On Earth”.Everyone from the man on the street to the movie stars of Hollywood to the leaders of nations has cussed, discussed, plead for, struggled for, hoped for, sought for, fought for, negotiated for, and spoken for world peace. What is “world peace” and can it even be achieved?
The scriptures say that there will be no peace on this earth separate from the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ. There is a very simple reason for this. True peace is not the lack of conflict between men but the lack of conflict between men and God. Those who do not serve God will not fulfill God’s commandment;
Mr 12:30 ‘And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment”And if they do not love the Lord with all their heart they will not have the heart to fulfill the second commandment; Read more
