Satan'a Meeting........

Aug 19, 2009 - 27 comments


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

"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 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

"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 I-Pod whenever they drive." To
keep the TV, DVDs, 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

"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

"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?

OMG, this is absolutley true.  This is what they do.... and some of us christians let them.  Where did you find this, if I can only get this in Spanish for my congregation!!  He should not be embarrased of Jesus Christ. We should all spread the Gospel, cause when it's time, He will be embarrased of us and say in front of His Father "I don't know you" Just like a lot of people are doing.  Glod Bless you and keep preaching the beautiful Gospel!!

Wow everything on Yourjournal is so true!!  I must confess that sometimes I seem too busy at times to spend the time I need to with Jesus. We need to Cherish these last days & not get so consumed with the everydays of life. I Love how you spread the word. Keep spreading the Word and keep up that good energy!!

Sooooo True...  I used to be guilty of being "busy"...I worked a job that required ALOT of traveling(home maybe one week a month if that.  After I got married, Got pregnant(didn't know I was) I quit that job because I was sooo hormonal...then I had a miscarriage.  God has a purpose for everything an I think my little angel was here to help me get un-busy.  I stayed home the whole summer and took care of my little man(step-son). I am now going to school 8am-12pm and home to do all my wife duties =) And I am so much happier now.  God is good!!

Thanks for posting this...i just copied and sent to my email so i can forward to friends and family. God is so good to patient, but i know He wants us to do our part. I don't want to be so busy and was supposed to make life easier, but i think it just complicates and isolates, if you let it!  I'm so glad that there are so many that Love the Lord God on this site, and are daily reaching out to encourage others. I know that Jesus is returning soon and i want to be ready.

God Bless You

This is sooooo true! It is so easy to get caught up in the every day business and let the other more important things go, mainly God. I've certainly been guilty of it!
I just talked to my oldest son the other day and told him to not get so busy with work, etc. that he forgets his family. I worry about him because I feel like he's doing exactly that. All I can do is pray.
We all need this reminder!

Amen...You have just described my life before I had my latest set back...always on the go. In the mornings I was so rushed I rarely took time to pray...etc. What you wrote put me in mind of C.S Lewis' Screwtype Letters. It's very good it'll make people stop and think you should post it on as many web sites as you can...God Bless You...Anna

Are there not those who are busy serving God and who have dedicated their lives to Him?  They are busy but not with evil. Mother Theresa was constantly busy serving the Almighty.  Most of us aren't like her but focussing on God more than on evil is, to me, what it's all about - the ever-loving father and the Prince of Peace rather than the father of lies.

Hey lonewolf, I think the difference is the people that are busy doing God's work are probably pretty focused on Him as well. Or at least we would hope so! If not, they will get burned out pretty fast. We can't do it all in our own strength. We need God to "fill us up" every day. That's probably why you see people like Mother Theresa have such peace and strength even in trying times because they're relying on God's strength.
It's true that we need to focus on God more and not evil but we do have to be aware of evil so that we don't fall into the trap of it. It's a fine balance. We don't want to be looking for demons behind every bush but we do need to put on our "Armor of God" every day so that we don't fall. But absolutely! Praise and worship and keeping our eyes on Him are the best things we can do! :)

April - I guess my comment wasn't clear.  Sorry.  We do have to be aware of evil and depend on God.  A medicine woman told me that evil stays away from those who already evil.  The aim of evil is to get people who are not evil.  Even though this comment came from another Native person, I think it applies to Christianity too.  The evil one doesn't need to waste his time on those who have already accepted evil; evil comes after those who don't accept it.  Look how the evil one tried to tempt Jesus.  I can't remember how many times I've prayed for protection from evil because I know it exists.

I'm not writing this clearly - I guess it's like you said focus on God but be aware of evil.  Sometimes recognizing evil is difficult, that's why we need to rely on the Almighty.
