Satan's Meeting
(read even if you're busy)

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
savior." "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 Savior 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 catalogs, 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." "Thatwill
fragment their families quickly!" "Give them Santa Claus to distract them
from teaching their children the real meaning of Christmas." "Give them
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
Does "busy" mean: B-eing U-nder S-atan's Y-oke? Please pass this on, if
you aren't too BUSY

My hope for you my friend is that you take this to heart. Turn off the TV,
Hug the one you love and cherish, open GOD's Word, and listen to what GOD's
got for you to learn! Take Care!
