"SATAN CALLED A WORLDWIDE CONVENTION: Being Busy - It’s the Devil’s favorite tactic."
Nabasa ko lang ito... tapos napaisip ako, kaya gusto ko na rin ibahagi sa inyo... kaya sana'y basahin n'yo kahit busy kayo. - MC DUANE
The devil is out to seek, kill and destroy. He wants to steal our peace and fill us with anything that is not from God. As I pondered and revealed in my own peace today, I was reminded of how the Devil works in so many people's lives to keep them busy and thus being able to get their focus off of God and onto other things that don’t matter. May it help you to re-focus on the things of God and take your eyes of the things of the world, which is not our home and is fleeting. Blessings and peace.
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."
" We can't even keep them from forming an intimate relationship with their saviour."
"Once they gain that connection with Jesus, our power over them is broken."
"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 Saviour and maintaining that vital connection throughout their day!"
"How shall we do this?" his demons shouted.
"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 hours and the husbands to work 6-7 days each week, 10- 12 hours a day, so they can afford their empty spendy 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."
"Entice them to play the radio or cassette player whenever they drive. To keep the TV, VCR, CD's and their PC's 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 raunchy magazines and newspapers."
"Pound their minds with the biased 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 winning newsletter and promotional offering free products, services and false hopes.."
"Keep skinny, 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 discouraged and tired to love their husbands.
"If they don't give their husbands the care they need, they will begin to look elsewhere."
"That will fragment their families quickly!"
"Give them a generous 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 depressed and 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, involve them in gossip and small talk so that they leave with troubled consciences."
"Crowd their lives with so many GOOD causes they have no time to seek spiritual 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 get busier and more rushed, going here and there.
Having little time for their God and their families.
Having no time to tell others about the power of Jesus to change lives, no time to attend their church!
I guess the question is, has the devil been successful in his schemes?
You be the judge!!!!!
Tapos ang meaning pa daw ng "ACRONYM"
ng salitang "B.U.S.Y." ay... "B-eing U-nder S-atan's Y-oke"??
Alam kong iba-iba tayo ng paniniwala pero nung nabasa ko ito ay medyo napaisip talaga ako, sa ngayon hindi pa natin matutukoy kung ano ba talaga ang ibig sabihin ng mensaheng nabasa ninyo sa taas at kung totoo ba talaga ito o hindi, pero may point yung nilalaman ng mensahe kung sisisirin mo ang nakakalunod nitong kahulugan, pero sa tingin ko ay darating din ang panahon at magkakaroon na ng mga kasagutan ang mga katanungang yan...
Buti na lang HINDI AKO BUSY kaya i-shi-ni-share ko ito sa inyo ngayon.
Kaya kung HINDI KA BUSY eh i-share mo din sa ibang mga kakilala mo.
