BUSY: Being Under Satan’s Yoke?
The Devil’s Convention ….
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 savior.”
“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
Almighty God Jehovah and Jesus Christ, His Son.”
“This is what I want you to do,” said the devil: “Distract them from gaining
hold of their Savior 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 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.”
“Entice them to play the radio or cassette player whenever they drive.”
“To keep the TV, VCR, DVD, 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 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 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; thus committing adultery!”
“That will fragment their families quickly!”
“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, involve them in gossip and small talk
so that they leave with troubled consciences.”
“Crowd their lives with so many good earthly causes they have no time to seek
power from Jehovah God and His Son, Jesus Christ.”
“Let them be involved in soul-winning, but crowd their lives with so many causes
that they have no time to seek power from God and 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!”
It was quite a devilish clever plan!
The demons went eagerly to their assignments causing Christians everywhere
to get busier and more rushed, going here and there and everywhere.
Having little time for their God or their families.
Having no time to tell others about the power of Jesus to change lives.
I guess the question is, has the devil been successful in his schemes?
You be the judge!!!!!
Does “BUSY” mean: Being Under Satan’s Yoke?
Satan’s goal is to take our minds away from Jehovah God and Jesus Christ
and steer us towards the cares of the world. God wants us to enjoy life,
but He must be our first priority in our lives.If we are too busy for the
One True God Jehovah and His Son, Jesus Christ, then we are too
busy being earthly busy. The Day of Wrath of Jehovah and Jesus Christ
Second Coming is upon the whole world; Wake Up and Pray Up and
not be lead away by Satan’s schemes and temptations or else we’ll have
to face the consequences with regrets and be written out of the
Book of LIFE and God’s Kingdom.
The HOUR is at HAND.

“From dust we are formed and so to dust shall we return;
Yet we prolong our fate of death for it is everlasting life we yearn.”

Humanity suffers eternal damnation from sins of Adam and Eve; a bad decision
on account of the influential sweet-talking-promising-the-world Devil aka Satan.
Eve’s weakness on juicy temptations clearly signifies how we as humans make
poor judgment most of the time and suffer the ramifications of our choice for
a long time. Men must always remember and take note also that women are
powerfully innocent creatures by subtle ways of influence because Eve by
persuasion alone has gotten Adam to sin as well with a forever-stuck-proof
of an “Adam’s apple” and eternally laboring for needs and wants.
By disobeying God and listening to smooth-oiled words of Satan, they chose
the tree of knowledge rather than the tree of life and humanity has been
sweating and toiling their fruits of disobedience till now and still will
go on infinitely. The irony of it is that mankind with their expansive
knowledge haven’t a clue where the elixir of eternal life lies; they with
their arrogant ways attempt and endeavor on all sorts of variety of cures
of magical wonder drug to delay and prolong a mortal soul; which in fact
God had already set in motion a plan to grant humans an everlasting life
to begin with. This was a gift given freely by God Himself when He first
created Mankind. And that gift had charred and went up in smoke; just
by two souls who weren’t strong enough to resist temptation and their
disobedience to God’s commands.
So, at the end of everyone’s journey on earth, one still die and sleep in
one’s grave till ‘the way to eternal life’ Jesus Christ comes the
second time around. When we die, our body and soul dies in sleep
but our spirit is taken back by God. Some of us will be resurrected
to everlasting immortal life and some will be to eternal damnation
and extermination, come God’s judgment day; that is the
Day of Jehovah, the Day of the Wrath of GOD.
There is life following death after all, and that is the transformation
from a mortal and bodily soul to an immortal spiritual one on condition
that we accept Jesus Christ as our Messiah and also acknowledging
him as the son of God. Jesus is the only one and true way, the elixir
of life to Jehovah God and without him as our redeemer, mankind
and their unrepentant evil wicked ways will cease to exist.
We cannot be reconciled with God if not for the intervention of Jesus
on our behalf; a Mediator and Savior for our lives.
“BELIEVE IN ME AND ALSO BELIEVE IN HIM WHO SENT ME;
FOR YOU SHALL GAIN EVERLASTING LIFE.
ANYONE THIRSTING, COME FOLLOW ME
AND I SHALL TAKE YOU TO MY FATHER’S HOUSE
AND TO THE RIVER OF WATER OF LIFE
FOR IT IS FREE TO ANYONE WHO WISHES TO DRINK FROM IT.”
