Word For It. . .

2Chronicles7:14-“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

B-U-S-Y? “Watch”…

Satan Called a Worldwide Convention.

In his opening address to his evil angels, Satan 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 forming an intimate, abiding relationship experience in 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 Saviour and maintaining that vital connection throughout their day!”

“How shall we do this?” shouted his angels.

“Keep them busy in the non-essentials 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 empty lifestyles. Keep them from spending time with their children. As their family fragments, soon, their home 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 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 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, busy, busy! And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip and small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences and unsettled emotions.

“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 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 convention. The evil angels went eagerly to their assignments causing Christians everywhere to get more busy and more rushed, going here and there. I guess the question is: Has the devil been successful at his scheme? You be the judge!

Does “busy” mean:
B-eing U-nder S-atan’s Y-oke?

 

Mark 13: 30 Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done. 31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. 32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. 33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34 For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.

    Good morning. This is a mosty needed warning as to the devices of the enemy. I’lll probably be linking to it at some point; when time permits. Great reflection.

    Have a blessed weekend in Jesus.

    Some versions include the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus but it is something we all “race against”. So many times I’ll think whether I would want Jesus to come at the moment I am thinking doing, or saying something…it’s not hard to be “good” but all activities should honor Him!

    God’s Blessings Always, In All Ways timbob.

    This really made me think about how busy, fragmented, and crazy our lives can get. I recall one afternoon a while back when I was cruising along a well-traveled highway and spotted a sign in front of a church that said something about the noise in our lives drowning out the “still, small voice.” It really hit me because I was listening to a favorite CD, and the volume was really “pumped up.” I sort of chuckled to myself and cut off the music completely. Since that day, I seldom listen to anything in the car until after I’ve prayed and listened for answers. I’m not saying I “hear” things, but I am saying that I’m more in tune with the Spirit (so to speak) and that I feel much calmer and less stressed when I get to work.

    lol I know what you meant, my dear Jayne! A different spin, perhaps, but if I listen to my first instinct, it’s usually right. When we pray for God’s guidance, we have to believe He will deliver and it’s easy to let “little doubts” creep in! Isn’t this “convention” so on target as to how we can allow interferences to transport us to a place where we lose ourselves and God’s purpose?! And I love music, as you know…
    Funny where little messages or reminders will show up, eh? ;-)
    Glad to hear from you, Jayne, and hope all is well. God’s Blessings on You and Yours!
