Devil's Convention

 

The Devil's Convention

.

Satan called a worldwide convention. In the opening

address to his evil angels, he said, "We can't keep

the Christian 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 with 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 the day!"

"How shall we do this?" shouted the 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 husband to work 6 - 7

days a 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, their

home will offer no escape from the pressures of work!"

Over-stimulate their minds so that they cannot hear

Christ's quiet whisper. Entice them to play the radio

or casette player whenever they drive. Keep the TV,

VCR, CDs and their PCs going constantly in their

homes. See to it that every store and restaurant in

the world plays non-biblical music constantly. This

will jam their minds and break the 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, mail order catalogues,

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!

And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve

them in gossip and small talk so that they leave with

troubled consciences and unsettled emotion."

"Go ahead, 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

sacrificing their health and family for the good of

the cause. It will work!"

It was quite a convention. And the evil angels went

eagerly to their assignments causing Christians

everywhere to be busy and rush here and there.
