Satan called a world wide convention. In his
opening address to his evil angels, 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 cant't even
keep them from forming an intimate abiding relationship
experience in Christ. If they gain that connection with Jesus,
our power over them is broken. So let them go to their
churches; let them have their conservative lifestyles, but steal
their time, so they can't gain that relationship with Jesus Christ.
This is what I want you to do, angels, Distract them from
gaining hold of their Savior and maintaining that vital
connection throughout their day! "
"How shall we do this?" shouted his angels.
"Keep them busy in the non essentials 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 lifestyle. Keep them from
spending time with their children. As their family fragments,
soon their home 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 computers
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 product services and false hopes.
Keep skinny, beautiful models on the magazines so the
husbands will believe that external beauty is what's important,
and they'll become dissatisfied with their wives. Ha! That will
fragment those families quickly!"
Even in their recreation, let them be excessive. Have
them return from their recreation exhausted, disquieted and
unprepared for the coming week. Send them to amusement
parks, sporting events, 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 and unsettled emotions. 'Go
ahead let 'em be involved in soul winning; but 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 convention.
