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.
Stimulate them 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 to read so that they have no time to read the Bible. 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 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 do 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 on 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 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 at his scheme? You be the judge!
