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 conservative values." "But we can do something else. We can 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 this is what I want you to do, angels. Distract them from gaining hold of their Savior and maintaining that vital connection throughout their day! 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."
"HOW SHALL WE DO THIS?" shouted his angels.
"Keep them busy in the nonessentials of life, and invent unnumbered schemes to occupy their minds," he answered. "Tempt them to spend, spend, spend then borrow, borrow, borrow. Persuade the wives to go to work for long hours and the husbands to work 6 or 7 days a week, 10 to 12 hours a day, so they can afford their lifestyles." "Keep them from spending time with their children.
As their family fragments, 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 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, contradicting music constantly. This will jam their minds and break that union with Christ." "Fill their 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, sweepstakes, mail order catalogs, and every kind of newsletter
and promotion 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 hem 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 small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences and unsettled 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.
How about this definition of "busy":
This should make us all think.......Satan's goal is to take our minds and
hearts off Christ then steer us toward the cares of the world. God wants us to enjoy life, but He must be first and those things that are meant for us and according to his will, will be added unto us. But if you find yourself
too busy for God, then you must be really "B U S Y."
