Satan’s Meeting (Read even if you’re busy)

Satan called a worldwide convention of demons.
In his opening address he said,
“We cannot keep people from going to pray.”
“We cannot keep them from reading their holy books and knowing the truth.”
“We cannot even keep them from forming an intimate relationship with their God “.
“Once they gain that connection with GOD, our power over them is broken.”
“So let them go to their prayers; let them have their covered dish
dinners, BUT steal their time, so they don’t have time to develop a
Relationship with GOD…”
“This is what I want you to do,” said the devil:
“Distract them from gaining hold of their GOD and maintaining that
Vital connection throughout their day!”
“How shall we do this?” his demons shouted.
“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 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, CDs and their PCs going constantly in
their home and see to it that every store and restaurant in the world
plays non-religious music constantly.”
“This will jam their minds and break that union with God.”
“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 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 distractions to distract them from teaching their children
the real meaning of life.”
“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, and busy!”
“And when they 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 GOD.”
“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 plan!
The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing people 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 GOD to change lives.
I guess the question is, has the devil been successful in his schemes?
You be the judge!!!!!

Does “BUSY” mean?

Please pass this on, if you aren’t too BUSY!



NOTE:    A long time ago I received a chain email with the contents above.  I think it captures well one of Satan’s tactics to draw us away from God, for which reason I wanted to share.  The author is unknown to me.
