The Meeting

(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

2 Corinthians 6:2

Satan called a meeting in his office. He invited some of his most notorious residents of hell.

Is it air conditioned in here?” asked Osama bin Laden. “Sure is.” replied the devil. “It’s one of the perks of being the boss.” Bin Laden who was soaked in sweat from another day of the eternal heat of his just reward looked down and frowned.

Satan said, “I suppose you are all wondering why I called this meeting.” A group of history’s most evil men stood before the devil’s desk. Each of them nodded. “There seems to be more and more people choosing Heaven.” Satan continued. “I have been talking with the marketing team and we need to put a positive spin on this place. I am looking for new ideas. I need new ways to catch more souls.”

The loathsome serial killer, John Wayne Gacy, raised his hand. Satan said, “Yes, clown.” “Sir,” Gacy said, “As you know, I loved to kill children. I think we could get more souls down here if we convinced people to kill children.”

You’re out of touch, Gacy.” the devil said. “You’ve been down here a while. You have no idea what’s going on up there. We’ve made killing children a two-billion dollar a year business. Through the abortion industry, we have killed 70 million little boys and girls since 1973. We have just made it more palatable by calling it a choice instead of murder.”

The villainous Joseph Stalin raised his hand and said, “Boss, we will get more souls and ruin their society by starting wars to destroy Democracy and replace it with Communism.”

That won’t work, Joe.” said Satan. “Wars cost too much money, besides we’ve been destroying Democracy from the inside. Don’t you watch CNN? We have gotten Communists elected to some offices. Only we don’t call it Communism. We call it Democratic Socialism.”

The vile terrorist, Osama bin Laden, raised his hand. Satan said, “Yes, you in the turban.” Bin Laden smiled and said, “Mr. Lucifer, If wars won’t work, why don’t we take more souls by use of radical Muslim Terrorists. That always worked for me.”

No.” Satan said. “We have to sacrifice too many of our own guys. I can’t afford to lose anymore minions when they fly airplanes into buildings. Besides, we have managed to get radical Muslim Terrorists elected to their political offices. Those idiots actually voted them in.”

You’re kidding!” Bin Laden laughed.

I never kid.” Satan replied.

The depraved Charles Manson interrupted, “Let’s destroy them and their world through sexual perversion.”

Charlie,” the devil started, “We are already doing that. The world is flooded with pornography. Depravity is running rampant. We got them to okay same sex marriages, and now we are confusing them into letting boys use the girl’s bathrooms. We just repackaged the term “perversion,” and called it an “alternative lifestyle.”

Frustrated, the devil yelled, “Doesn’t any of you scum have any good ideas on how to catch more souls?” A man in the back of the room raised his hand. “Yes,” Satan said. “Who are you?” The man said, “My name is Billy.” The devil snorted, “Billy! I don’t remember you ever doing anything disgustingly evil. Do you have an idea?”

Billy said, “I just wanted to tell you what got me down here. All my life, I knew that I needed to get saved, but I kept putting it off. I was busy with work, cell phones, social media, television, and other important stuff. I thought I had plenty of time. Then one day, I woke up here. I suggest you convince people that there is no hurry. Convince them to wait for a better, more convenient time to accept Christ and live for Him.”

Brilliant!” Satan shouted. “That will work!”

The point is: The Bible says today is the day of salvation. We are not promised tomorrow. Right now, accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.

Don’t put off your decision.

Tomorrow may be too late.
