In the book Already Compromised, Greg Hall shares a chilling story about a conversation satan had with his three most evil demons:
A story is told about Satan calling his emissaries of hell together because he wanted to send them to earth to aid men and women in the ruination of theirs souls. He asked, “Who would go first, and what would be the strategy?” One said, ” I will go.” “And what will you tell them?” Satan asked. ” I will tell them there is no heaven.” And Satan said, “They will not believe you, for there is a bit of heaven in every human heart. In the end everyone knows that good will triumph over evil. You may not go.”
Then another came forward, darker and fouler than the first. “If I send you,” Satan said, “what will you tell them?” ” I will tell them there is no hell.” satan looked at him and said,”No, they will not believe you, for in every human heart there is a thing called conscience, an inner voice which testifies to the truth that not only will good triumph but evil will be defeated. You are not to go.”
The last creature that come forward was more diabolical than them all. Satan said to him, “If I send you what will you say to men and women that will lead to the destruction of their souls?” And he said,”I will tell them there is no hurry.” Satan said, “GO. You are the one.”
Brothers and sisters, you do not have a thousand years. When are you going to make God, and His Word, a priority in your life? When are you going to make the education of your children a priority in your life? It’s time to get actively involved in the lives of your children. You, not the state, are responsible for raising your children. You have been entrusted with the upbringing and education of your children; it’s not somebody else’s responsibility.
Our nation has been riddled with a serious disease. And sad to say, that disease has already infiltrated the church, and is growing at epidemic speed. The disease is APATHY! Just showing up to church every week does not a Christian make. Your kids are watching. Are you living God’s Word, or just going through the motions? Right now, you are the biggest influence as to whether or not your kids will still be Christians when they leave high school. The statistics tell us that 2/3 of our kids won’t be.
With the United States now being a nation with many religions and many gods, are you a beacon of light shining towards the one, true God? Or are you letting schools and the media educate your children about the wonderful promises of their false religions and false gods? Will your children one day be sacrificing your grandchildren to Molech, or some other false god? Maybe they will be enlightened and dedicate their life to murdering Christians because they have decided to follow the false religions of Islam or Buddhism.
If you are a parent, you have been called to raise your children in the Way of the Lord. God blessed you with children so that you can leave a Godly legacy. If you died today, what would your family legacy be? You may be a Christian, but are your kids? Are you confident that they will be in Heaven? It’s time to fight the battle against apathy! We can win this one.
He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse.
