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
"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
"How shall we do this?" his demons shouted.
"Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life and
Invent innumerable schemes to occupy their minds," he
"Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and 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 cd 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/hoardings."
"Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, mail order
Catalogs, sweepstakes, and every kind of newsletter
And promotional offering free products, services and
"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
"It will work!"
"It will work!"
It was quite a plan!
The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing
Christians everywhere to get busier 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
In his schemes?
You be the judge!!!!!
Does "BUSY" mean:
B-eing U-nder S-atan's Y-oke?
