Satan's scheme.

Satan called a worldwide
convention. In his opening
address to his evil angels,
he said, "We can't keep the
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, abiding
relationship experience in
Christ. Once 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
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 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 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
Flood their mailboxes with
junk mail, mail order
catalogs, sweepstakes, and
every kind of newsletter and
promotional offering free
products, services and false
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. 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.
Don't let them go out in
nature to reflect on God's
wonders. 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 them 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
It was quite a convention.
The evil angels went eagerly
to their assignments causing
Christians everywhere to get
more busy and more rushed,
going here and there.
I guess the question is: Has
the devil been successful at
his scheme? You be the
judge! Does "busy" mean:
