Satan's Invitation against Christians

Post  lisa1880 on Sun 06 Apr 2008, 3:27 am

Satan called a world wide 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 then from reading their Bibles & knowing the truth. We can't even keep them from conservative values. But we can do something else.

We can keep them from forming an intimate, abiding experience in
Christ. If they gain that connection with Jesus, our power over them
is broken. So let them go to church, let them have their conservative
lifestyles, but steal their time, so they can't gain that experience in
Jesus Christ.

This is what I want you to do, angels. Distract them from gaining
hold of their Saviour & maintaining that vital connection throughout
their day."

"How shall we do this?", shouted his angels.

"Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life & invent unnumbered
schemes to occupy their minds," he answered. "Tempt them to spend,
spend, spend, then, borrow, borrow, borrow. Convince the wives to go
to work & the husbands to work 6 or 7 days a week,10-12 hrs. a day, so
they can afford their lifestyles. Keep them from spending time with
their children. As their family fragments, 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, the VCR, & their CD's going constantly in their
homes. And see to it that every store & restaurant in the world plays
music constantly. This will jam their minds & break that union with
Christ."

"Fill their coffee tables with magazines & newspapers. Pound their
minds with the news 24 hrs. a day. Invade their driving moments with
billboards. Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, sweepstakes, mail
order catalogues, & every kind of newsletter & promotional offering,
free products, services, & false hopes."

"Even in their recreation, let them be excessive. Have them return
from their recreation exhausted, disquieted & unprepared for the coming
week.

Don't let them go out in nature. Send them to amusement parks,
sporting events, concerts & movies instead. And when they meet for
spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip & small talk so that they
leave with troubled consciences & unsettled emotion."

"Let them be involved in soul-winning. But crowd their lives with so
many good causes they have no time to seek power from Christ. Soon they will be working in their own strength, sacrificing their
health & family unity for the good of the cause."
It was quite a convention in the end.

And the evil angels went eagerly to their assignments causing
Christians everywhere to get busy, busy, busy & rush here & there.


Has the devil been successful at his scheme?
You be the judge.
