The Devil's Tool Box
How to Keep Nations, Churches, and Individuals from Repentance
KEY: Replace weeping with anger.
The best thing thing for our ultimate agenda is to get people angry with God. Tell them he is not just, he is not loving. Get them to evaluate God by human standards. But, anger against God, is not effective in creating enough heat to replace weeping with anger.
Getting people to reject God's moral standards related to sex, partying and drunkenness is the easiest thing to do, but again that does not produce enough heat to replace weeping with anger even if their new choices lead to harm, lawlessness, or disease.
Political fervor is your best tool. Using political fervor it is easy to push people to the point that they get angry about the issues and take up the quest for the influence and power to silence the opposition. This is the easiest kind of anger to fan into the white hot heat that shuts down logic and makes them ready to believe lies and to become liars. All kind of treachery becomes possible -- thank you God for creating people that way -- which further fans the heat, hardens their positions, and drives out any possibility of weeping over themselves.
Listen to the words of Jeremiah while watching his nations and the people of God being destroyed:
Jeremiah 9:1-2 New Living Translation (NLT)
1If only my head were a pool of water
and my eyes a fountain of tears,
I would weep day and night
for all my people who have been slaughtered.
2 Oh, that I could go away and forget my people
and live in a travelers’ shack in the desert.
For they are all adulterers—
a pack of treacherous liars.
Pray This Audacious Prayer:
Gives me eyes that weep over those things that cause you to weep. Free us from captivity to political fervor and the anger that Satan has used to keep us captive and to keeps us from weeping and repentance as individuals, as churches, and as a nation.
