Satan called a worldwide conventionof demons. In his opening address he said,"We can't keep Christians from going tochurch.""We can't keep them from reading their Biblesand knowing the truth." "We can't even keepthemfrom forming an intimate relationship with theirSaviour.""Once they gain that connection withJesus, our power over them is broken." "So letthem go to their churches; let them have theircovered dish dinners, BUT steal their time, sotheydon't have time to develop a relationship withJesus Christ.." "This is what I want you to do,"saidthe devil: "Distract them from gaining hold oftheirSaviour and maintaining that vital connectionthroughout their day!" "How shall we do this?"hisdemons shouted. "Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life and invent innumerableschemesto occupy their minds," he answered. "Temptthemto spend, spend, spend, and borrow, borrow,borrow." "Persuade the wives to go to work forlong hours and the husbands to work 6-7 dayseach week, 10- 12 hours a day, so they canaffordtheir empty lifestyles." "Keep them fromspendingtime with their children." "As their familiesfragment, soon, their homes will offer noescapefrom the pressures of work!" "Over-stimulatetheirminds so that they cannot hear that still, smallvoice." "Entice them to play the radio orcassetteplayer whenever they drive." "To keep the TV,VCR, CDs and their PCs going constantly intheirhome and see to it that every store andrestaurantin the world plays non-biblical musicconstantly." "This will jam their minds and breakthat union with Christ." "Fill the coffee tableswithmagazines and newspapers." "Pound theirmindswith the news 24 hours a day." "Inva de theirdriving moments with billboards." "Flood theirmailboxes with junk mail, mail order catalogs,sweepstakes, and every kind of newsletter andpromotional offering free products, servicesandfalse hopes.." "Keep skinny, beautiful modelsonthe magazines and TV so their husbands willbelieve that outward beauty is what's important,and they'll become dissatisfied with theirwives. " "Keep the wives too tired to love theirhusbands at night." Give them headachestoo! "Ifthey don't give their husbands the love theyneed,they will begin to look elsewhere." "That willfragment their families quickly!" "Give themSantaClause to distract them from teaching theirchildren the real meaning of Christmas." "Givethem an Easter bunny so they won't talk abouthisresurrection and power over sin anddeath." "Evenin their recreation, let them beexcessive." "Havethem return from their recreationexhausted." "Keep them too busy to go out innatureand reflect on God's creation. Send them toamusement parks, sporting events, plays,concerts,and movies instead. "Keep them busy, busy,busy!" "And when they meet for spiritualfellowship, involve them in gossip and small talkso that they leave with troubledconsciences." "Crowd their lives with so manygood causes they have no time to seek powerfrom Jesus." "Soon they will be working in theirown strength, sacrificing their health and familyfor the good of the cause." "It will work!" "It willwork!"It was quite a plan! The demons went eagerlyto their assignments causing Christianseverywhere to get busier and more rushed, goinghere and there. Having little time for their God ortheirfamilies. Having no time to tell others about thepower of Jesus to change lives. I guess thequestion is, has the devil been successful inhis schemes? You be the judge!!!!! Does "BUSY"mean: B-eing U-nder S-atan's Y-oke?
