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 knowing Jesus but we can 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, lots of programs and activities most  will steal their time, so they won’t have time to develop a close relationship with Jesus Christ or others…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 with Him, which means they also won’t reach out to God’s Children with His compassion and Love, and even their prayers won’t have wings!”

                                   “How shall we do this?” his demons shouted.

“Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life and invest in innumerable schemes to occupy their minds”, he answered.  “Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and borrow, borrow, borrow Persuade 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, 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 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 their wives will too and so spend much time and money trying to prove it as they  focus on diets and exercise till they become an obsession and groups and programs where they are  constantly trying to better themselves.  

Husbands will become dissatisfied with their Wives and they will not respect their Husbands.  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, Keep the husbands absorbed in their own wants instead of putting their wives first. Encourage Separation and Divorce by making  it popular and an easy way out of Commitment, That will fragment their families quickly! 

 Get them to focus only on 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 Jesus’  Resurrection and Power over sin and death and the freedom we have been given over them in Him. Encourage them to promote Halloween and other things that uplift me, like New age teaching.

Even in their Recreation, let them be excessive.  Have them return from their Recreation exhausted.  Keep them too busy to go out appreciate the wonder of Nature and reflect on God’s Creation.  Send them to Amusement parks, Sporting events, Plays, Concerts, and Movies instead. 

Keep them so busy that they have no time to form lasting and fulfilling friendships where they  support, help  and care for each other through the good and the bad times. Instead let them be fair-weather friends too busy to encourage each other or really fellowship together. Even when they meet for Spiritual Fellowship, involve them in evil gossip and small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences. 

  Keep them busy, busy, busy! 
Crowd their lives with so many good worldly causes that they have no time to seek power from Jesus. Soon they will be working in their own strength, sacrificing their health and family and friends 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 busier and more rushed, going here and there.  Having little time for their God or their families and friends.  Having no time to tell others about the power of Jesus to change lives because their own lives were empty and without His power.

The question now is and time is short, has the devil been successful in his Schemes?  You be the judge but think about this…

 Does “BUSY” mean:  B-eing U-nder S-atan’s Y-oke?

    Excellent choice of a blog. Satan does not care as long as he keeps us busy with the things of life. As long as we are to busy to pray, seek God, look to him, lean on his understanding.

    People these days are so rushed off their feet to meet every day needs, that they don’t leave any time for God. Whats the point in working all your life to loose it all. The bible tells us that we take nothing into the world, and we take nothing out ( 1 Timothy 6:7 ).

  3. This is wonderful. Isaiah 26:3 comes to mind here “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed upon THEE.” I try to live by this verse daily, never allowing Satan go get a foothold in my heart with worldly distractions. Excellent Anne!

    Wow, when you see them listed like that, all the distractions Satan uses, you cannot doubt his cleverness. However, he is not clever enough to realize his fight is futile.
    Keep the Faith!

      Hi Love, appreciate your encouragement and as we know it was God who made time stand still and in a way still does, it’s not His will that anyone perishes He is giving us more time…

      2 Peter 3:8-10 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

      As for the clock I forgot to wind it up! 😀

      Christian Love Anne.

      I needed it myself Dru, I remember when Christmas never seemed to arrive, now it’s like a week between each year, well not exactly but time sure does fly and I shouldn’t waste the time given, sure I can have enjoyment with what interests me but not at the expense of others.
