Satan’s Convention

Recently a church friend sent me some Christian literature and I saw a story written about how Satan would preside over a “devil’s convention”. It appeared right on target. So let us look into this meeting. (Author unknown)

                                 SATAN’S PLAN & MEETING

       It is said that 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 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 you should 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?” the demons shouted. “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 each week, 10-12 hours a day, so they can afford their empty lifestyles. Keep them from spending time with their children. As 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 stereo player whenever they drive…keep the TV, VCR,CD’s and their PC’s 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 for 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 is important, and they’ll become dissatified with their wives. Keep the wives too tired to love theri husbands at night. If they 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 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 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 fellowship, let them 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 have 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 Satan been successful at his scheme?

You be the judge, does “busy” really mean:

B-eing

U-nder

S-atan’s

Y-oke ???

In this convention plan, we can see his all encompassing influence through out the world. We must be fully aware that Satan and his demons are fighting for their lives right now! They know scripture brilliantly and they knew well the  last days sign of (Mal.4:5) “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet, before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.” This was their cue to pull out all stops, distractions everywhere.

Look at the what happened in the mid 1950’s. Rock and roll music exploded onto the scene. And shortly after,  morality was “let loose”, free love and anything goes. Then the electronic bombardment came in the 1980’s (computers, cell phones,pagers, etc.). Now, there are so many distractions, that unless we summit to our King, we have but little chance of escaping their snares. It is indeed a super gigantic spiritual warfare for the souls of humanity.

Let’s change that word busy to mean,

B-eing

U-nder

S-avior’s

Y-oke

In Christ, and Whose guidance makes possible this post- Rob
