| I have, by the Lord's leading, added to this brief little message
below, quite a few things...... I pray this will "wake up," those who are
~ Gary R. Kane~
Satan called a worldwide convention of demons. In his opening address he said, "We can't keep True Christians from communing with Christ, and loving His Word, and gathering in His name."
"We can't keep them from reading their Bibles and knowing the truth, and fearing God." "We can't keep them from forming an intimate relationship with their savior." "Once they gain that connection with Jesus, our power over them is broken." We 'must' keep them from ever reaching this place!
"So let them go to their churches; let them have their covered Dish dinners, but steal their time, so they don't have time to develop 'a relationship' with Jesus Christ."
"This is what I want you to do", said the devil. "Distract them from gaining hold of their Savior and maintaining that vital connection. "How shall we do this?" His demons shouted. "Keep them busy in the nonessentials of life and invent innumerable schemes to occupy their minds, and lots of churchy religious activity and traditions," 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 their empty lifestyles.
Keep them from spending time with their children. As their families fragment, 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." 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 catalogs, sweepstakes, and every kind of newsletter and promotional offering free products, services and false hopes."
"Keep beautiful models on the magazines and TV so their husbands will believe that outward beauty is what's important, and they'll become dissatisfied with their wives. Keep the wives too tired to love their husbands at night. Give them headaches too! If they don't give their husbands the love they need, they will begin to look elsewhere." "That will fragment their families quickly!"
"Give them Santa Claus to distract them from teaching their children the real meaning of Christmas. Give them an Easter bunny so they won't talk about his resurrection and power over sin and death." "Even in their recreation, let them be excessive...have them return from their recreation exhausted. Keep them too busy to go out in nature and reflect on God's creation. Send them to amusement parks!, sporting events, plays, concerts, and movies instead."
"Keep them busy busy, busy!"
"And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, let them leave with troubled consciences."
"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 plan!
The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing Christians everywhere to have little time for God or their families. Having no time to tell others about the power of Jesus to change lives. Having no time to stay 'shut in with the Lord,' in His Word and prayer and praise. Finally bring them to lukewarmness, and half heartedness..... "GO, said the devil, "Keep them busy, and entertained and craving pleasure rather than Christ!"
And so they have gone! And so they have done!
"AND THE CHURCH SAID TO THIS........"AMEN! LET'S DO IT!"
"I PRAY THIS IS NOT WHAT YOU SAID!"
