Satan's Meeting

Satan called a worldwide convention of demons. In his opening address he
said, "We can't keep Christians from going to church. We can't keep them
from reading their Bibles and knowing the truth. We can't even keep them
from forming an intimate relationship with their saviour. Once they gain
that connection with Jesus, our power over them is broken."

"So let them go to their churches; let them have their covered dish dinners,
but steal their time, so they don't have time to develop a relationship with
Jesus Christ."

"This is what I want you to do", said the devil:

"Distract them from gaining hold of their Saviour and maintaining that vital
connection throughout their day!" "How shall we do this?" his demons
shouted.

"Keep them busy in the nonessentials of life and invent innumerable schemes
to occupy their minds," he answered.

"Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and borrow, borrow, borrow."

"Persuade the wives to go to work for long hours and the husbands to work
6-7 days each week, 10-12 hours a day, so they can afford their empty
lifestyles."


"Keep them from spending time with their children. As their families
fragment, soon, their homes will offer no escape from the pressures of
work!"

"Over-stimulate their minds so that they cannot hear that still, small
voice. Entice them to play the radio or cassette player whenever they
drive. To keep the TV, VCR, CDs and their PCs going constantly in their
home and see to it that every store and restaurant in the world plays
non-biblical music constantly. This will jam their minds and break that
union with Christ."

"Fill the coffee tables with magazines and newspapers. Pound their minds
with the news 24 hours a day. Invade their driving moments with billboards.
Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, mail order catalogues, sweepstakes,
and every kind of newsletter and promotional offering free products,
services and false hopes."

"Keep skinny, beautiful models on the magazines and TV so their husbands
will believe that outward beauty is what's important, and they'll become
dissatisfied with their wives. Keep the wives too tired to love their
husbands at night. Give them headaches too! If they don't give their
husbands the love they need, they will begin to look elsewhere. That will
fragment their families quickly!"

"Give them Santa Claus to distract them from teaching their children the
real meaning of Christmas. Give them an Easter bunny so they won't talk
about his resurrection and power over sin and death."

"Even in their recreation, let them be excessive. Have them return from
their recreation exhausted. Keep them too busy to go out in nature and
reflect on God's creation. Send them to amusement parks, sporting events,
plays, concerts, and movies instead. Keep them busy, busy, busy!"

"And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip and
small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences."

"Crowd their lives with so many good causes they have no time to seek power
from Jesus. Soon they will be working in their own strength, sacrificing
their health and family for the good of the cause. It will work! It will
work!"

It was quite a plan! The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing
Christians everywhere to get more busy and more rushed, going here and
there. Having little time for their God or their families. Having no time
to tell others about the power of Jesus to change lives. I guess the
question is, has the devil been successful at his scheme?

You be the judge! Does "busy" mean:
B-eing
U-nder
S-atan's
Y-oke?
