Are you too B-U-S-Y?

2 Corinthians 2 v 11


Addressing a worldwide convention of demons, satan told them: 'As long as Christians stay close to God, we've no power over them, so:-

1)  Keep them busy with non-essentials.

2)  Tempt them to overspend and go into debt.

3)  Make them work long hours to maintain empty lifestyles.

4)  Discourage them from spending family time, for when homes disintegrate there is no refuge from work.

5)  Overstimulate their minds with television and computers so that they can't hear God speaking to them.

6) Fill their coffee tables and nightstands with newspapers and magazines so they've no time for bible reading.

7)  Flood their letterboxes with sweepstakes, promotions and get rich quick schemes; keep them chasing material things.

8)  Put glamorous models on TV and on magazine covers to keep them focused on outward appearances: that way they will be dissatified with themselves and their mates.

9)  Make sure couples are too exhausted for physical intimacy; that way the'll be tempted to look elsewhere.

10) Emphasise Santa and the Easter Bunny; that way you'll divert them from the real meaning of the holidays.

11) Involve them in 'good' causes so they won't have any time for eternal ones.

12) Make them self-sufficient.  Keep them so busy working in their own strength that they'll never know the joy of Gods power working through them. 

Do these 12 things faithfully; I promise -  it'll work!'


Have you figured out the difference between being busy and being successful in what God has called you to do? Sometimes being B-U-S-Y just means Being Under Satans Yoke.
