Just in from Central America

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
>>saviour."
>>
>>"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 Saviour 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-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 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 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 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 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 in his schemes?
>>
>>You be the judge!!!!!
>>
>>Does "BUSY" mean: B-eing U-nder S-atan's Y-oke?
>>
>>Please pass this on, if you aren't too BUSY!
>>
>>I don't think I know 10 people who would admit they love Jesus.
>>
>>Do You Love Him?
>>
>>IF YOU LOVE JESUS, PASS THIS ON!!!!!!!
