Break Free in Las Vegas

Break Free made its first trip to Las Vegas last weekend. We made some connections with a few Christian bboys out there and wanted to partner up with them in an outreach. It was my first time to sin city and I must say the devil really has a strong hold on that place. As we were getting closer to the city I could feel sense darkness in my spirit. A good friend of mine, Mike Williams, opened up his heart/home to us to crash for the weekend. Mike also, hooked us up with doing an outreach with his church in the downtown area called freemont street. Like, I said when you bring the light of the gospel into darkness; the devil will put up a fight. In a nutshell, we were constantly harassed by security as we stood our ground in proclaiming Jesus as Lord. We were serving about 20 feet away from a palm reading caravan. There were perverted and strange street performances all along the area but since we were sharing Christ we were hit the hardest. I couldn’t help but think of Ephesians 6 when Paul talked about the spiritual warfare. “Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devils schemes. Our battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” After we were getting discouraged of the devils flaming arrows hitting us, we started to quote scriptures like these. “ Greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the World.” We had no more problems because the Word says when you resist the devil he will flee from you. Praise the Lord, He gave us the grace to stand our ground and preach the gospel against much opposition. Our team as a whole probably handed out over a thousand gospel tracts and had many good one on one conversation’s. The dancing was a great tool in order to draw a crowd to reach more people. Jesus was and is victorious!!! Our prayer is that revival would take place and that Las Vegas would no longer be known as sin city but saint city!!
