Are You Busy?

Suppose 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 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 Savior and
maintaining that vital connection throughout their

"How shall we do this?" shouted Satan's angels. "Keep
them busy in the nonessentials 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 a week, 10 - 12 hours a day, so they can
afford their 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."

"Overstimulate their minds so that they cannot hear
God's 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 homes. 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 table 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, sweepstakes,
mail order catalogues, and every kind of news-
letter and promotional offering free products,
services, and false hopes."

"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."

And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve
them in gossip and 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 and family 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 and
rush here and there.

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