Satan's Three Thoughts.



Satan's Three Thoughts He Helps Put Into The Minds Of Non-Believers

  1. Is there a God?
  2. There might be something to this God thing but it really doesn't matter to me.
  3. I have ALL the time in the world - I don't need to make a decision anytime soon...
Last Friday night in a high school not too far from me a young seventeen (17) year old football player died on the field.... No one knows the cause - he was running and all of a sudden dropped dead to the ground...

Last Sunday - a young girl was crying because of this young man.... He was her friend.... She said that he was asking questions a few weeks ago about Jesus..... this young girl felt so very guilty because she did not have time to answer his questions.... She is afraid that he never had his questions answered....

Last Sunday night - a young man was joyful through his tears because of this young football player... He was his friend.... Last Wednesday night at a youth ministry get together this football player came.... He accepted Christ as His Savior... The young man said that the football player was on fire to know Jesus.... almost desperate in fact..... Now he knows why.... Jesus wanted him home.....

Last Saturday afternoon I was at Office Depot - as I was standing in line - I heard the people in front of me talking to the cashier.... The cashier was a young man in his early 20's - he was saying something about something changing his outlook on death... I have no idea what it was he was talking about.... The lady in front of me asked him if he knew Jesus.. The cashier said "I've heard of him but that's about it" Then the woman asked do you believe in Jesus - that he exists and died on the cross for our sins.... The cashier said, "I really don't believe in anything"... The lady said that you need to know Jesus and know that he loves you.... Jesus loves you so much.... I literally saw the cashier's eyes glaze over.... I think this reaction happens more often than not... the disinterest... The lady and her husband left.. I was up next - I looked at this young cashier - I said "You know - the lady is right - you don't have all the time in the world..." This poor cashier's eyes just bugged out in surprise... I later shared this story with a friend of mine.... I told how his eyes glazed over.... She said that you and the lady planted the seeds and the rest is up to God....

There are many people who I care about that are living their lives.. Living without believing.... Living without knowing.... Living in perfect ignorance.... Thinking they have plenty of time... Thinking that all this "God Stuff" does not pertain to them.... We need to let it be know - that Satan is the Master of Deception and they do matter.... they may not have plenty of time... . Think of the young seventeen (17) year old boy... you would think that he would have had a lot of time........

We need these warnings! I am sorry that such a young man lost his life. You are right that this serves as an urgent warning for us to always be ready, and to encourage others to be ready. We never know when our day will come.

It is sad that the young man died at such a young age. But then again, we don't know...only the Lord knows his heart. There are still many out there who are lost. We are commanded to share the Good News and I pray that God's children will have the boldness to share this if given an opportunity. God bless.

I love the fact that God DESIRED that teen so BADLY that He CHANGED his heart and allowed him to feel and see real love. The love Jesus has for us. Praise God, that young man gets heaven in all its glory!!!


Hmm cashier at the store. I like that the lady was wanting to share the gospel, but I don't like how so many Christians are trained the right way to do it :( she overstepped alot, and needed to ask more questions about why the man felt the way he did. But I do know she was in a line the time was short and there were other people waiting :( so I would agree with your friend hopefully with your added comment that planted a seed!!!!!

So sad that a young man lost his life early. But we have to remember that God views death so differently than we do! I just praise GOd that before he was called home, he had met Jesus - accepted Him as His Lord and Savior. Praises to the one who planted those seeds in him and that he hungered enough to find the Truth!

Awesome post.

Wow...what a thought provoking post...we need to always be alert to nudgings from the Spirit to tell others of our blessed hope...we may never know what seeds were planted by our obedience, but God knows....

Thanks for visiting my blog...I will be back later to read more of your posts....
