I’d be remiss not to post something about Halloween. Christians should have boycotted this “holiday” from the get-go, but today there is just no excuse anymore to be naive to Halloween’s dark history or the evil that’s occurring while Churches hold their “alternative” events.
“CHRINO” Christian in name only…
The former Queen of “Witches of Europe”, spoke to a Christian audience in Louisville, KY that she and other witches and satanists would laugh when they saw Christians participating in and celebrating Halloween, even though they claimed they did it unknowingly.
“On Halloween, many parents encourage their children to pay respect to the devil and evil spirits. Thousands of people willfully sanction the homage of Satan, decorating their homes and church buildings with trappings from Lucifer’s kingdom in violation of God’s Word.”
The first observance of October 31 as a holiday began well before Christ’s birth. This day marked the end of the Celtic calendar year. It thereby was the eve of Samhain, a three-day festival of the dead, celebrated by the Celtic pagan cult called the Druids. During this festival, the following activities were said to have occurred: the dead rose and wandered; divination and soothsaying were practiced; fairies, witches, and goblins harassed the people of the countryside; Druids demanded contributions of food to support their special diet.
The observance of Samhain continued, and in A.D. 837 Pope Gregory IV instituted All Saints’ Day and All Hallows’ Eve, or Halloween, as a “Christian” holiday, which the Roman Catholic church hoped would “provide an alternative” to Samhain and its pagan practices. It did not. During the Middle Ages, such practices accompanied a surge in witchcraft and actual worship of Lucifer himself. One of the special “Sabbaths” for this worship was October 31, and witches were said to travel to these services on broomsticks (drug-induced hallucinations), accompanied by black cats.
In light of this brief historical review, consider some of the current practices and activities associated with Halloween.
1. October 31 is obviously linked with a pagan holiday during which divination and soothsaying were practiced.
2. Masks and costumes are used to conceal the true identity of children, who are then urged to go out and mimic the acts of trickery and harassment previously attributed to fairies, witches, and goblins.
3. The simple trick-or-treat is a demand for food contributions, which is clearly connected with the Druids’ demand for their diet.
4. Posters of witches on broomsticks flying across the moon actually depict them as on their way to a special “Sabbath” service (sex, drugs, and sorcery) for the worship of Lucifer.
5. Pumpkins carved to show a face are related to the gourds carved into death masks, which were carried by Druids during Samhain.
6. The whole concept behind Halloween involves death, darkness, deception, fear, pagan rituals, and Satan.
The Christian is to EXPOSE evil…
Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret.
The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.
For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.
But what is Godly about witches, fortune telling, magic, threats (trick-or-treat), disfiguring property, skeletons, hideous masks, spooks, haunted houses, coffins, owls (omens of bad luck and death), graveyards, monsters, demons, and the like? Halloween’s emphasis is associated with the underworld of hell.
“But we only do it in fun and make-believe….God knows our hearts!”
1 Samuel 13
15 Saul said, “They have brought them from the Amalekites, for the people spared the best of the sheep and oxen to sacrifice to the Lord your God;…. ”
22 Samuel said,
“Has the Lord as great a delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices
As in obedience to the voice of the Lord?
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, And to heed [is better] than the fat of rams. 23 “For rebellion is as the sin of divination (fortune-telling),
And disobedience is as false religion and idolatry.
9 “The heart is deceitful above all things, And it is extremely wicked;
But God knows that you CAN NOT get involved in satanic practices without certain danger of being deceived by the devil.
10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or daughter pass through the fire [as a sacrifice], one who uses divination and fortune-telling, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who casts a charm or spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or a necromancer [who seeks the dead]. 12 For EVERYONE WHO DOES THESE THINGS is UTTERLY REPULSIVE to the Lord;
7 Therefore do not become partners with them; 8 for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light 9 (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), 10 and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to speak of the things that they do in secret. 13 But when anything is exposed by the light, it becomes visible,
15 Outside are the dogs [the godless, the impure, those of low moral character] and the sorcerers [with their intoxicating drugs, and magic arts], and the immoral persons [the perverted, the molesters, and the adulterers], and the murderers, and the idolaters, and everyone who loves lies and practices lying.
Be prepared for attack when you repent of your respect for this base holiday of death.
Satan has enjoyed your support, and he will not give it up easily.
Family and friends will oppose you, and even your church may speak evil of you.
Persevere, and trust the Lord, because He is faithful to direct your paths.
How much of an impact could we have against the kingdom of darkness if, instead of selfishly creating an “alternative” celebration for our children, we gathered together (in body or only in spirit) for PRAYER on this dark holiday?
