I hope this really makes you think!
Are you aware of the agenda that Satan has against you, Christian? Please read this, so you can understand the ways in which the enemy of your soul has been destroying people's lives for a long time.
Satan called a worldwide convention of demons. In his opening address he said, "We can't keep Christians from going to church. We can't keep them from reading their Bibles and knowing the truth, and we can't stop them from sharing their faith. Once they gain that connection with God, through Jesus Christ, we can't rip them out of God's hands.
But we can still possibly lure them back into turning away from God, and unto to destruction. Remember what Peter said. "For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning."
So let them go to their churches and have their covered dish dinners, and their fellowships, because I have many workers already behind the pulpits of many churches, causing people to stray from the way. So I have that angle covered, but I want to go after them in their personal lives and walks with God, also.
So how do we start the demons shouted? Let's begin by stealing their personal time, so they don’t focus on an intimate relationship with God, and distract them from their focus on their Savior so they forget to maintain a vital communication with Him throughout their day!"
"Tell us how to go about it?" the demons shouted.
1st: "Keep them busy in the nonessentials of life and invent innumerable schemes to occupy their minds".
2nd: Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and borrow, borrow, borrow, because then, like proverbs says, they the borrowers will become slaves to their lenders, which will then force:
3rd: The wives to have 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, which will in turn will create stress and resentment between them, as they try to figure out how to try to pay that debt back.
4th: As they work more, and more, this will keep them from spending time with their wives and children, which will, eventually fragment their families!
5th: And the more the men don't spend time with their wives, their relationships will become more distant, and they will become lonely. So let's take advantage of this loneliness and put pictures of skinny, beautiful supermodels in magazines and on the TV, and this will cause them to become dissatisfied with their wives, because they will start believing that outward beauty is what's most important. And once they become dissatisfied with their wives, they will get divorced, and go after a younger more beautiful girl, whom they will think will satisfy them more.
And the children, oh yes the children. They will think divorce is okay and normal, the more it happens, and they will get desensitized to it, which will start generational curses.
And even better yet, when people divorce and then try to remarry, and start over, without changing their behaviors, and resisting our traps, it will be easier to cause them to divorce the more times they remarry.
And in the midst of all of these things we will do to destroy their marriages and families, I also want you to try hard to cause them to fall away from God.
6th: Over-stimulate their minds daily, so that they cannot hear His still, small voice.
7th: Entice them to play their radios and CD players whenever they drive. And get them to keep their TV's, VCR's, CDs, computer's and smart phones going constantly, in and away from their homes, and see to it that every store and restaurant in the world plays non-Christian music constantly, which will most assuredly jam their minds and break their union with God.
8th: Then, make sure that the coffee tables are full of magazines and newspapers, and pound their minds with the news 24 hours a day, and Invade their driving moments with billboards. Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, mail order catalogs, sweepstakes, and every kind of newsletter and promotional offerings, offering free products, services and false hopes, which they can run after in vain hope.
9th: 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. Attract them to amusement parks, sporting events, plays, concerts, and movies instead.
And when, or if they meet for spiritual fellowship, because they might be too busy, and distracted with all of their problems, they will leave with troubled consciences, and hesitate to come again, which as the saying goes, "many coals will burn for hours together, but remove one and place it by itself, and it will extinguish quickly."
And I don't only want to destroy their marriages, families, and their faith, I also want to go after the faith of their children.
10th: So, give them Santa Claus so their children never learn the real meaning of Christmas, and believe that that day, is just about getting stuff.
11th: Give them the Easter bunny, so they only think about Easter egg hunts, and candy instead of the Saviors resurrection and power over sin and death.
12th: Give them Halloween, and really promote it as just a day of fun, and candy, and hide our real agenda, from them, so they will believe it's Ok to practice. And as they do so, they will unknowingly compromise their faith in God, and ignore Paul's warning in 2 Corinthians 6:14 "Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?"
Overall, just keep them busy, distracted, and chasing after the temporary pleasures of this world and their flesh!
I want you to crowd their lives with so much busyness and so many problems, that they have no time to seek God's power. Then they will try to live their lives in their own strength, and sacrifice their health and family for the temporary, passing pleasures of this world.
Once they are overworked and unhappy, and their families and lives are falling apart, then we will whisper in their ears and tell them all their troubles are all God's fault, just like I did in the garden, in the beginning to their ancestors.
Then once they blame Him, instead of themselves, and get offended with Him, they will turn away from Him, and forsake their relationship with Him, to go and try to find peace and happiness in alcohol, drugs, pornography, and all the other lusts of the world. But of course they will find no lasting happiness in those things, which will cause them to keep going back more and more, which will lead them to be addicts, which will leave them utterly destitute.
And as their resentment grows for God, they will slip more and more away from God, and eventually die in their sins, never having repented before God, and plummet into the pit, and eternal torment forever and ever. Ha, ha, ha.
"It will work! It will work, they all shouted!!" The devil said "It is quite a plan!" So the demons went eagerly to their assignments trying to deceive people everywhere and trying to make them so busy that they have little time for God or their families, and to have little or no time to tell others about the power of God to change lives.
I guess the question is, has the devil been successful in his agenda against you?
You be the judge!
He certainly has been successful in America as a whole.
