892 - Satan's Convention

Please tell me how this speaks to you - what are you convicted about in this? Leigh

Satan's Convention
Unknown Author

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. If 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 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 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, 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 so the husbands will believe that external beauty is what's important, and they'll become dissatisfied with their wives. Ha! 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. 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.

Satan has gotten a foothold on many Christians lives by keeping them busy. How many of us today sit down together as a family and have dinner together. I know that there have been many distractions in our lives since 2004, but we are back on track! ( Praise God) There are many things that can distract us from God's word and plan for us. Keep His word first place in your life and resist Satan and he must flee!
In Christ,
Jon

once heard, during a woman's address, that BUSY really stands for:
Being Under Satan's Yoke.
pretty darn accurate, both her remark & your post.

Well this was awesome and spoke right to me. Just yesterday I made a rule for myself- no computer until I have had bible time- Funny how I couldnt find the time to be in my bible every day. I am busy and do have small kids- BUT that should come first. Silly to think that I am able to put God on the back burner- yet my dishes must be done- or you'll find me on facebook.
Your name was accurate here- God spoke thru you- to really make HIS point to me.

Found your blog yesterday will def be a future reader.
Thank you-

OMG..this is too funny. I just posted this exact same thing on mine blog today. I was given this at least about 8 years ago and it really spoke to me. I have often talked about it because of how true it is. Especially in today's day.
