Holiness vs. Halloween
For all those seeking TRUTH, KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM & RIGHTEOUSNESS!!
It’s everywhere ! Target! Gas Stations! Uuugh! My heart almost jumped out of my chest the other day at the grocery store as a life sized witch in the middle of the Halloween aisle began to move and speak! Seriously?! WHAAAT! WHY is this OK?
The sidewalks are swarming with excited children and young people masquerading as every imaginable creature and character…witches, animals, vampires, ghosts, mummies, cartoon characters, alien beings, clowns, devils, skeletons, hideous looking monsters, bloody mutilated beings and then the cute bumble bees, super heros, fairy princesses, pumpkins and more. These kids go door to door shouting “Trick or Treat”, hoping to collect a “ton” of candy before the night is over. Take a look at the houses and yards the children are approaching. Many of them are decorated in a bizarre motif. Tombstones, graves with body parts exposed, ghosts, caldrons, supposed bodies hung by the neck are scattered around the yard and in the trees. Eerie grinning Jack-O-Lanterns watch as the children approach. Skeletons, scarecrows, witches, black cats, etc. decorate the doors and windows. The Then Halloween Concerts with the local bands. Oh yes, then there is an array of seasonal entertainment. Ghost Hunts, or “haunted houses”. Groups of kids talking about what they’ve just seen inside…the bloody body in the bathtub, the axe wielding maniac that chased them, the monster that jumped out swinging at them with a chain saw, the body hanging by the neck in the closet, and the refrigerator in the kitchen filled with bloody body parts. Then, across town there are parties going on. The activities are different than the usual party though. bobbing for apples, bonfires, and groups playing with the OUIJA boards or telling scarey stories. Everyone is out watching the latest horror movies. Then there are those who go out into the night to cause trouble.
To most people it seems like harmless fun.
BUT, beneath Halloween’s candy coating is evil that is directly connected to the occult, witchcraft and satanism.( To understand more I have added some links below )November 1st used to be a Christian holiday celebrating those who died for the sake of the Gospel. It was called All Hallows’ Day, so the day before was called All Hallows’ Eve. The name was changed to Halloween. Study the word: Hallow = saints; ween, [wean] = to withdraw from the practice of. So when we say the name of Halloween, we are basically saying the withdrawing away from being a saint, or a Christian.
You may now be saying, “I am not involved in anything like that!!!”
Let me ask you;
if you put on clothes to go to the grocery store, go to the grocery store, buy groceries,
come home with groceries, would you be participating in grocery shopping?
Yes, you would.
When you go to the grocery store, do you buy everything that’s there?
No, you don’t,
but you did still participate in grocery shopping, right?
“If the root is holy, so are the branches,” (Rom. 11:16); likewise if the root, (or where something began) of what we are partaking of is unholy so is any part of or association with it.
ANY PARTICIPATION IN THIS HOLIDAY Is showing SUPPORT of it.
God tells us we can not separate out the parts we want to hang onto because that part seems O.K. and just get rid of the “bad” part. He tells us the entire thing is defiled, (foul, contaminated, unclean), and we are to stay away from it, (Deut. 7:25,26; 2 Cor. 6:11-7:1).
Also, remember that satan and his demons come disguised as angels of light, (2 Cor. 11:14,15). In other words, they try to make things seem good or OK so you will become involved with it when it actually is evil.
We are told to do all things to the glory of God, (1 Cor. 10:31).
Does it glorify God when you participate in Halloween?
Whenever the apostles met persons connected with fortune-telling, witchcraft or the occult, the Holy Spirit dealt firmly and swiftly with them. When revival came to Ephesus, the occult books were the first to go (Acts 19:18-19). Anything that conjures up the spirits of evil has to go. And the symbols of Halloween DO conjure up the spirits of evil.
The devil TRIES TO CONVINCE PEOPLE THAT HE DOESN’T EXIST !
And what better way to deny his power and identity than to tell children and their parents that witches, ghosts, fortune-tellers and devils are ‘just for fun?’
“Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:21-22
And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. Ephesians 5:11
I encourage EVERYONE to not be conformed to the patterns, behaviors, and CUSTOMS of this world, but be transformed into a new person by the renewing of you mind!!!!
Maybe you’ve never heard it presented to you this way before…. Be courageous and make a stand this year to be SET APART and peculiar !! WARNING: Do NOT be surprised when….( Even some of your closest friends and family ) WILL be offended, upset and angry about your choice. They may mock you, or argue with you and call you over religious…or over spiritualizing. I SAY…..So What!! This just means they are not ready to give up their fun. Someone has got to Stand, will it be you? Stand in Love.
It’s not about God pointing His finger towards us in Judgement, it’s about God pointing us closer towards His Heart.
Choose this day whom you will serve!!!
My heart and prayer for all of you is that you will choose Life, the God who loves you without measure!! Will you give up everything to follow Jesus? Are you willing to sacrifice “Your” life for Him ? He did for you!! Please take this ” day” seriously because followers of darkness are!
It is a night for those of us who claim to be set apart to really be in spiritual warfare mode, We should be praying against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:12)
This note is NOT compelled by condemnation and judgement, but of LOVE!
I LOVE You! I’m not trying to get God points here, I’m just sharing an Amazing revelation that has given me great Joy and a deeper intimate relationship with God.
This is a revelation God has personally given to me after years of celebrating this day, believing it was harmless fun. I have had personal encounters with those who have dabbled in the occult and they have shared with me the real significance of this time. It is not a time to be fearful but to be faithful! This is an awesome time to fast and be with the Lord, praying for those who do not have understanding and for those who are using these days to stir up all that God detests!
I asked God to forgive me and thanked Him for His wonderful grace and mercy. Now I find myself responsible to share the information I’ve found and the wisdom God has given to me out of His heart. His desire is for us to have ALL good things, He does not want to take our fun, He wants to fill our Lives with the things of Heaven! He will satisfy you! He will give you all the desires of your heart as you delight in Him!
For the past few years I’ve just posted my own small page of collected research….But today I feel responsible to allow you to research a little for yourself.
I hope some of these websites release revelation to you, concerning the truth of what is going on…..There is soo much more, I encourage you to look even further for yourselves, seek out TRUTH and righteousness, for there is a reward!! And its Wisdom!!
