Subject: Satan’s Meeting
Satan called a worldwide convention of demons…
In his opening address Satan 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
“This is what I want you to do,” said the devil. “Distract them from gaining hold
of their SAVIOR. Distract them from maintaining that vital connection throughout
“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,” Satan 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 I-Pod whenever they drive. Encourage them to Keep the TV, DVD’s,
CD’s and their PC’s 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. 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 or
HIS 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 is 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 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: Being Under Satan’s Yoke?
