and Christian must be aware of satan's schemes and
cleverness. be aware of it. You might already been a
victim of satan's scheme. Be on guard always! Learn
his schemes for you not to be caught unaware.
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
"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
"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,"
"Tempt them to spend, spend, spend, and 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, 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
"Fill the coffee tables with magazines and
"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
"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
"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
"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
"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 power from Jesus."
"Soon they will be working in their own strength,
sacrificing their health and family for the good of
"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 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?
To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”- John 8:31-32

This is a timely message in our society today. Too many gadgets and devices consume our time that we tend to forget how to prioritize what's really important in our lives. Thank you Kathleen and God bless.
Thanks for this message. The enemy does want us to ignore the Lord Jesus. If he can do this. he can keep us from truly getting to know Him. We need to keep our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith. It is important to listen to Him, when we pray.
