“Keep ‘em Busy!” Part One
HELLO. This is your friend the devil writing. I want to thank you for following my suggestions in the past. You have been a big help in what I’m trying to build. Let me remind you of some guidelines to follow. Your support has been a big help in the past and will help even more in the future.
I am calling a worldwide convention. In my opening address to my dark angels, I said, “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, rob their joy, and destroy their relationships.
This is what I want you to do. Distract them from gaining hold of their Savior and maintaining that vital connection throughout their day!
“How shall we do this?” the dark angels shouted. “Keep them in nonessentials of life and invent innumerable activities to occupy their minds.” Never bring up controversial topics such as, abortion, pornography, gambling, drinking, drugs, sexual immorality or any such private sins. Let someone else do it. Your plate is already full. Put your emphasis only on corporate sins. Forget individual responsibility.
Always remember that there is no such thing as absolute truth. All things are relative. Be sure and place spiritual needs at the bottom level of life. Never speak out on any issue using Christian values as a perspective. Remember the only thing necessary to be a good Christian is to go to church when you can, give a little money if you can. Remember that your faith should be a private matter. Never try to apply it anywhere else. Remember… separation of church and state!
And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve them in gossip and small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences and unsettled emotion. Don’t speak of the consequence of sin. Encourage them to continue to ignore the Bible. Like the Constitution, it is outdated and useless.
Go ahead; let them be involved in soul-winning. But busy their lives with so many good activities that 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 will work! It will work!
Fully engage their minds so they cannot hear that still, small voice. Entice them to the Internet, Facebook, Twitter, Snap chat, Instagram, Pinterest… etc. Keep the T.V., Cable, Video games, C.D.’s Music…etc. going constantly. And see to it that every public building in the world plays secular music constantly. This will jam their minds and interfere with any God-consciousness.
Don’t worry about the moral character of our leaders. Blame government and big business. Make sure they depend on the government to do things for them. Let the government raise, educate and teach their children right and wrong. Remember common sense can never compete against bureaucracy! See to it that the children are neglected by their parents. The evil one continued. Tempt them to spend, spend, spend and borrow, borrow, borrow. Persuade them to do whatever it takes to maintain their lifestyle. Even in their recreation, let them be excessive…keep them busy, busy, busy. The family will divide and splinter and the pressures will cause destruction from within. The goal is to steal, kill and destroy the family!
It was quite a convention. And the evil angels went eagerly to their assignments causing Christians everywhere to get busy, busy, busy and to rush here and there.
I guess the question is:
Has the devils plan been successful?
In the course of the year 2000, I read three separate articles that I have combined and revised here for us in 2017. The message is as relevant today as it was 17 years ago.
You be the judge! B – Being
U – Under
S – Satan’s
Y – Yoke
How BUSY are you?
There are many suggestions I want to share with you later, the evil on continued. I will write again. Next week I will give you the key to see this plan successfully implemented. You are excused for now. See you next week!
