INSIGHTFUL MESSAGE (The Enemy's Perfect Plan)

The Enemy's Perfect Plan

     Satan called a worldwide convention. In his opening address to his evil angels, 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 conservative values. But we can do something else. We can keep them from forming an intimate abiding relationship experience in Jesus Christ. If they gain that connection with Jesus, our power over them is broken. So let them go to church, let them have their conservative lifestyles, but steal time from them so they can't gain the experience in Jesus Christ. This is what I want you to do, my evil angels. DISTRACT THEM!!! Don't let them take hold of their Savior and maintain that vital connection throughout their day!"
     "How shall we do this?" shouted one angel.
     "Keep them busy in the nonessentials of life and invent schemes to occupy their minds," he answered. "Tempt them to spend, spend, spend then borrow, borrow, borrow. Convince the wives to go to work for long hours and the husbands to work six or seven days a week, ten to twelve 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."
     "Overstimulate their minds so that they cannot hear that still small voice. Entice them to play non-Christian music whenever they drive, to keep the TV, VCR, CD'S, iPhones, cellphones, video games and their PC's going constantly in their homes. 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 their coffee tables with magazines and newspaper. Pound their minds with news 24 hours a day. Invade their driving moments with billboards. Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, sweepstakes, mail order catalogues and every kind of newsletter and promotional 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 them 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 unity for the good of the Cross."
     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 schemes? You decide.
     We are fighting a deadly battle. The worst battle ever... Spiritual warfare! Let's not allow the enemy to distract us! Find time to spend with God! DAILY!!!! 

Love and Blessings to all!
