Satan's Deadliest Strategy

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 theirsavior.""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 withJesus Christ..""This is what I want you to do," said the devil:"Distract them from gaining hold of their Savior and maintaining that vitalconnection throughout their day!""How shall we do this?" his demons shouted."Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life and invent innumerable schemesto 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 work6-7 days each week, 10-12 hours a day, so they can afford their emptylifestyles.""Keep them from spending time with their children.""As their families fragment, soon, their homes will offer no escape from thepressures of work!""Over-stimulate their minds so that they cannot hear that still, smallvoice.""Entice them to play the radio or cassette player whenever they drive." Tokeep the TV, VCR, CDs and their PCs going constantly in their home and seeto it that every store and restaurant in the world plays non-biblical musicconstantly.""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, andevery kind of newsletter and promotional offering free products, servicesand false hopes..""Keep skinny, beautiful models on the magazines and TV so their husbandswill believe that outward beauty is what's important, and they'll becomedissatisfied 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 tolook elsewhere.""That will fragment their families quickly!""Give them Santa Claus to distract them from teaching their children thereal meaning of Christmas.""Give them an Easter bunny so they won't talk about his resurrection andpower 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. Sendthem to amusement parks, sporting events, plays, concerts, and moviesinstead.""Keep them busy, busy, busy!""And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip andsmall talk so that they leave with troubled consciences.""Crowd their lives with so many good causes they have no time to seek powerfrom Jesus.""Soon they will be working in their own strength, sacrificing their healthand 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 everywhereto 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?
