I believe this was posted back
in 2008. I'm led to post it again.
The rapture is
Satan's Tactics to Destroy
Satan called a worldwide convention. In his opening
address to his evil angels, he said,
"We can't keep the Christians from going to church. We can't keep them
reading their Bibles & knowing the Truth. We can't even keep them
conservative values. But we can do something else. We can keep them
an intimate, abiding experience in Christ. If they gain that connection
Jesus, our power over them is broken."
"So let them go to church, let them have their conservative lifestyles,
but steal their time, so they can't gain
that experience in Jesus Christ."
"This is what I want you to do, angels. Distract them from gaining hold
Savior & maintaining that vital connection throughout their day!"
"How shall we do this?", shouted his angels.
"Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life & invent un-numbered
occupy their minds", he answered. "Tempt them to spend, spend, spend,
borrow, borrow, borrow. Convince the wives to go to work & the
husbands to work
6 or 7 days a week, 10-12 hrs. a day, so they can afford their
them from spending time with their children. As their family fragments,
their homes will offer no escape from the pressures of work."
"Over stimulate their minds so that they cannot hear that still small
Entice them to play the radio or cassette player whenever they drive,
the TV, the VCR, & their CD's going constantly in their homes. And
see to it
that every store & restaurant in the
world plays music constantly. This will jam their minds & break
that union with
Christ. Fill their coffee tables with magazines & newspapers. Pound
with the news 24 hrs. a day. Invade their driving moments with
their mailboxes with junk mail, sweepstakes, mail order catalogues,
& every kind
of newsletter & promotional offering, free products, services,
& false hopes."
"Even in their recreation, let them be excessive. Have them return from
recreation exhausted, disquieted & unprepared for the coming week.
them go out in nature. Send them to amusement parks, sporting events,
movies instead. And when they meet for spiritual fellowship, involve
gossip & small talk so that
they leave with troubled consciences & unsettled emotion."
"Let them be involved in soul-winning. But crowd their lives with so
causes they have no time to seek power from Christ. Soon they will be
their own strength, sacrificing their health & family unity for the
good of the cause."
It was quite a convention in the end.
And the evil angels went eagerly to their assignments causing
everywhere to get busy, busy, busy & rush here & there.
Has the devil been successful at his scheme?
You be the judge.
