Are You Ignorant Of Satan’s Schemes?

Do Not Be Ignorant Of Satan Schemes!

Åρ☺ṧ☂◎ℓї¢ ℐᾔ﹩℘ḯґαт☤☺η :

Three apprentice devils were being trained by Satan.

"What are you going to try today?" asked Satan.

The first apprentice replied, "I’m going to tell people that there is no God."

"Well," says Satan, "you can try. A few fools will believe you. But the universe shouts the existence of God. There is evidence all around, and you will not do very well.

Indeed, even in the secular twenty-first century – you may find yourself witnessing the slow death of atheism. Any other ideas?"

The second apprentice answered this: "I’m going to tell them that there is no judgment."

"That’s a better idea," says Satan. "You will persuade more people of that, especially some of the clergy. But human beings have a gut sense of accountability – that actions have consequences. They know what it is to feel guilty, even when their therapists tell them not to. So I think you’ll find it an uphill struggle. Anyone else have an idea?"

A third apprentice piped up, "I’m going to tell them that there is no need to hurry."

"Brilliant!" says Satan. "That is just what you need to say. You will have great success. Let them listen to the Word of God, and then whisper in their ears: This is good stuff. One day you ought to do something about this. But tomorrow will do."

What can we learn from this? Satan knows that the sin of procrastinating is something unique to deceive people easily in to lethargy and lack of spiritual progress because these days everybody thinks it is cool to say, "I will do it tomorrow." Tomorrow is only in fools calender and it will never come if not for God's mercy, so take God's help to do all things that edifies you spiritually today. When you take care of today with God's strength, God will take care of your tomorrow. As God has clearly said in His word that today is the day of His salvation, tomorrow may be too late or you might have missed much (2 Cor 6:2). Today is the day, use it as best as you can with the help of the Holy Spirit who is personally given to you by Jesus as a stand by support whenever you feel weak to fulfill or fail in your duties, if you are ready to acknowledge Him, He is ever available to support you with God's strength!

"So that no advantage would be taken of us by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes!" (2 Corinthians 2:11).
