Just imagine for a moment Satan asking three demons for ideas to keep people from heaven. The first one said, “Let’s tell them there is no heaven.” “That won’t work” replied Satan. “Everyone knows in their heart that heaven is real.”
The second spoke up, “Let’s tell them there’s no hell to be afraid of.” “No” replied Satan. “A man’s conscience tells him he’ll face judgment. No, we need something that will appeal to all people everywhere regardless of race, age or social class.”
Then the third demon said, “Let’s tell them they have more time. Tomorrow will be soon enough to be saved. There’s no hurry.” At that point Satan laughed with delight, certain he had found the right formula which has been his most effective tool until this day.
Well, it may not have happened just that way, but there is no question that the Devil’s greatest weapon is the “more time” lie. Don’t believe it. Obeying God and getting saved today will redeem the time.
