Halloween – should Christians Partake “just for the fun?”   Leave a comment


HALLOWEEN – 31 October 2011
Halloween is the vigil of All Hallows Day or All Saints Day, an important
Catholic feast. Not only is it one of the most important dates on the Catholic’s
calendar, it is THE most important date for the Satanists!
Halloween marks the Celtic new year. It was the end of the growing season.
It became a festival of death. On this day, the god of the Celtics was to have
called up the spirits of the wicked dead who had died during the past year. At
the same time, other evil spirits arose and went about the countryside harassing
the people. On October 31, the Celtics expected to be harassed by ghosts, evil
spirits and demons; and it was no fun and games to them. They would light
bonfires to guide the spirits to their own town and to ward off evil
spirits.
The Celtics had priests called druids. On October 31, the druids went from
house to house demanding certain foods, and all those who refused were cursed.
The people were tormented by means of magic. As they went, the druids carried
large turnips which they had hollowed out and on which they had carved demon
faces as charms. Each one was believed to contain the demon spirit that
personally led or guided that priest: his little god.
Those who practiced fortune-telling and divination found that this was the
night that they had the most success. They called upon satan to bless their
efforts. One form of divination was to put apples in a tub and bob for them. The
one who first successfully came up with one without putting them in his teeth
was to have good luck throughout the year. They would then peel the apples and
throw the peeling over their shoulders and then quickly look around. They
expected to see a vision or an apparition of the one they were to marry.
These things happened several centuries before CHRIST. Sacrifices were made
to the gods, especially the god of death – Samhain (pronounced Sah win).
Sacrifices all the way from vegetable to human were offered. This went on and
on, and, in some parts of the world, still goes on today.
In the 8th century, the Pope, in an effort to get the people to quit the
festival of Sam hain, invented All Saints Day (Nov. 1). This was an attempt to
get the people to turn away from the horrible observance of Sam hain. All Saints
Day was intended to honor the martyrs of the Roman persecutions. It did not
work! It never works to Christianize a pagan holiday. The holy and the profane
do not mix.
In the Middle Ages, there was a great revival of satanic practices and
witchcraft and magic – like there is today. During this time the belief
developed that witches traveled on broomsticks to the black Sabbaths to worship
satan on October 31. They were guided by spirits in the form of black cats. The
Druids worshiped cats believing them to be reincarnated evil people.
MODERN HALLOWEEN
Now let’s look at the present day celebration of Halloween. Isn’t the whole
theme one of darkness, death, fear, threats, destruction and evil? There are
witches, broomsticks, bats, owls, ghosts, skeletons, death, and monsters. You
dress up your children as demons and witches and ghouls and monsters and
werewolves and send them out into the street in the darkness to reenact the
Druids’ practice of demanding food from people under threat of tricks (or
curses) if they don’t comply.
You take, not a turnip, but a pumpkin and carve demon faces in it and
decorate with it.
At Halloween there will be apple bobbing, divination, fortune-telling,
haunted houses, candles lit and spirits called up. There will be seances and
ouija boards in the name of fun and excitement. There will be sacrifices of
dogs, cats, rats, chickens, goats and even humans!
You say, “Well, we don’t take it seriously.” But the devil does and so does
God. Particularly this is true when the Church which He purchased with His own
precious blood builds houses of horror in its fellowship halls so that the
little lambs who have been entrusted to its care can be terrified and opened up
to invading spirits of fear and torment and confusion.
How this must Grieve the Lord!

“HALLOWEEN, TRICK OR TREAT?
You can call a duck a horse, cow, cat, etc., but it is still a duck. You
can call what you do a “fall festival”, “alleluia party”, etc., but you are
still observing halloween, even if you dress up as bible characters. Halloween
is the highest satanic holy day of the year.
On October 31st, the high priest of all witch covens are required to make a
human sacrifice. God condemns witches and everything to do with them. The head
of the first satanic church said, “a witch is a witch”, when referring to black
and white witchcraft. All their power comes from the devil.
People think it’s funny to scare people to “death”. II TIMOTHY 1:7 says,
“For God has not given to us the spirit of fear…”. So guess who is scaring
you?
Tell your children the truth about halloween. Revelation 21:8 says liars
won’t make it to heaven. Then, parents, you will be doing your job as the high
priest of the family like you are supposed to be. If you open your doors to pass
out tracts, you are still observing halloween. Why don’t you pass them out
another time?
Stop being worldly, Christians.”
“For Rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft,” 1 Sam. 15:23,
WITCHCRAFT = SATANISM

According to the Satanic Calendar Halloween, October 31st is a night for
Human sacrifice: One of the two most important nights of the year. Attempts are
made to break the bond which is keeping the doors to the underworld closed.
Blood and sexual rituals. Sexual association with demons. Animal and human
sacrifice – male or female.)
As believers, we are called to “Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid
every kind of evil. [1 Thessalonians 5:21-22] Who can deny that virtually all of
the symbols of Halloween are evil? Witches, monsters, ogres, vampires, ghosts,
ghouls, goblins, devils and demons all portray evil. Christians are to “… have
no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
[Ephesians 5:11]
Should the church be compromised by accommodating itself to the
culture?
“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world,
but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” [Romans 12:2]
“For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what
fellowship can light have with darkness? What harmony is there between Christ
and Belial?” [2 Corinthians 6:14, 15]
The sort of practices celebrated on Halloween are what defiled the ancient
nations [see Leviticus 18:24-30]. The Israelites were warned against such
practices when they entered the Promised Land, “When thou art come into the land
which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the
abominations of those nations.” [Deuteronomy 18:9]
Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the
fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in
witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the
dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of
these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before
you. You must be blameless before the LORD your God. The nations you will
dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you,
the LORD your God has not permitted you to do so. [Deuteronomy 18:10-14]
How some people can defend this kind of activity as just another innocent
holiday that doesn’t harm anyone is beyond me.
Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light
because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will
not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. (John
3:19-20)
As satanic involvement among our youth increases, we begin to see the
primary goal of such activity. According to Scripture (2 Cor. 4:4; Rev. 12:9),
Satan’s goal is to deceive man by blinding him to the truth of the gospel and to
receive worship for himself (Matt. 4:9; Isa. 14:12-14).
It has become clear that the primary goal is to alter an individual’s
values and turn him against himself, his beliefs, family, God and society.
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring
lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” (1 Peter 5:8)
SUMMARY:
SO WHAT IS WRONG WITH HALLOWEEN???
It does not have even one single redeeming virtue. It is custom born out of
pagan superstition. It is a demon-inspired, devil-glorifying, occult festival.
It is an evening holy unto evil, death, and divination. The Scriptures tells us
to “Abstain from all appearance of evil.” [1Thess. 5:22]
Wake up Christian! This is the night of evil and those who love the Lord
Jesus Christ should have nothing to do with it.
We are all accountable for our choices and decisions. Ignorance is no
excuse. The choice is up to you. Have you been involved in this satanic holiday?
Do you struggle with giving it up because “it’s just fun” and an innocent
opportunity for children to dress up and collect candy? Don’t take my word for
it. Let God show you what he would have you do. You might begin by praying the
following:
Father in heaven I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ to confess that
I’m a sinner. I’m sorry! Please forgive me. I believe with all my heart that
Jesus Christ is Your Son and that You raised Him from the dead. I believe that
Jesus Christ died for my sins and that I might be saved. Each and everyday
Father I turn my will and my life over to Your care, and may Your Holy Spirit
lead and guide me in all the things I think , do and say. I’m Yours and You are
mine. Father, please use me that I might help others come to know and love Your
Son Jesus Christ. Thank You for saving me. Amen
Humbly praying that this truth finds deep roots……. in Jesus’ name!
Humbly,
Your servant and His
Wenessa
