Satan’s Distractions

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 31, 2020

         HAVE YOU THOUGHT LATELY ABOUT SATAN? A TEAM SENDS OUT SCOUTS TO LOOK AT ANOTHER TEAM TO LEARN THEIR STRENTGHS AND WEAKNESSES SO THE COACH CAN DESIGN A GAME PLAN TO DEFEAT THAT TEAM.

         THE FIRST THING WE LEARN IN SCRIPTURE ABOUT SATAN IS THAT HE IS SUBTLE, OR CRAFTY. WE ARE USED TO HIS TEMPTATIONS OF THE FLESH, BUT ARE THERE OTHER TACTICS HE USES TO GET OUR FOCUS AWAY FROM GOD? THE CURRENT POLITICAL SQUABBLING AND RIOTS IN OUR CITIES IS ONE OF HIS TACTICS. SO MANY PEOPLE ARE FOCUSED ON THE COMING ELECTION, OR THE PANDEMIC, THEY MAY BE PAYING LESS ATTENTION TO GOD AND HIS “GAME PLAN” WHICH IS THE GOSPEL, WHO IS JESUS.

         I’M NOT SAYING THE ELECTION IS UNIMPORTANT. IT CAN AFFECT OUR LIVES IN MANY WAYS, DEPENDING ON WHO BECOMES PRESIDENT AND WHICH PARTY CONTROLS CONGRESS. I AM SAYING IT CANNOT AFFECT ETERNITY. WE ALL DIE, BUT NOT ALL WILL SPEND ETERNITY IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD AND HIS SON. ETERNITY AND WHERE WE WILL SPEND IT IS WHERE OUR FOCUS SHOULD BE. SOMEONE ONCE SAID. “FOCUS ON HEAVEN AND YOU GET EARTH THROWN IN. FOCUS ON EARTH AND YOU GET NEITHER.” I’M CAL THOMAS.
