Why Halloween Should Not Be Celebrated By Christians!!!

Have A Wonderful and Blessed day!!! Halloween is Wicked!!!

The Bible does not mention Halloween. However, both the ancient origins of Halloween and its modern customs show it to be a celebration based on false beliefs about the dead and invisible spirits, or demons. However the Bible does mention things to avoid!!!

Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
Deuteronomy 18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
Deuteronomy 18:12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

1Corinthians 10:20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
1Co rinthians10:21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
1Corinthians 10:22 Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?
1John 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
1John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
1John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
1John 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

Halloween is not a day to celebrate, it has occult beginnings. It breaks my heart to see people dress their children in costumes related to Satan. How sad it is that our society encourages children to dress up as Satan and other evil personalities. Don’t parents realize that Satan is real and not some sort of Halloween character?
Unfortunately, many folks don’t believe that the devil really exists. They think he’s a figment of our imagination.

This Halloween season, sadly even some Christians will encourage their children to pay respects to the devil and his gang of evil spirits. Thousands of churches will fully sanction this homage to Satan in direct violation to the explicit teaching of the Word of God! Many fellowship rooms will be decked out with all the paraphernalia and trappings of Lucifer’s kingdom. To celebrate any aspect of this occult practice is wrong. Some will say well we will just dress our kids as Bible characters; NO don’t participate in it at all.

Do people realize many children were and probably still are sacrificed on this wicked night.

Halloween is a celebration of darkness. I don’t like darkness. Darkness hides things. In the Bible, darkness symbolizes evil.
Ephesians 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
Ephesians 5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
Ephesians 5:10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
Ephesians 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
Ephesians 5:12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

The whole concept behind Halloween involves death, darkness, deception, fear, and pagan rituals.

Many Christians find Halloween an uncomfortable topic. It’s a little like walking into a graveyard and seeing among the tombstones a wild, and evil party in progress–a bizarre mixture of horrible screams and laughing–and then wondering who might have organized it.
Let me ask this question: What in the world do witches and demons and vampires and blood have in common with the people of God, who John refers to as “children of light?”

Is Halloween simply a child’s celebration, a night of good, innocent fun or should we think more seriously about glorifying Satan and his evil angels? Do I sound like an extremist? Consider what the World Book Encyclopedia has to say on the subject:
“Halloween’s beginnings preceded Christ’s birth when the druids, a pagan group of devil-worshipers in what is now Britain and France, observed the end of summer by making human sacrifices to the gods. It was the beginning of the Celtic year. They believed that Samher, the lord of death, sent evil spirits abroad to attack humans, who could escape only be assuming disguises and looking like spirits themselves. The waning of the sun and the approach of dark winter made the evil spirits rejoice and play nasty tricks. Most of our Halloween practices can be traced back to the old pagan rites and superstitions.
Present-day Satanists and witches still consider Halloween to be their “high holy day”–like Resurrection is to us. They say it is the ideal time of year to cast spells, see into the future and communicate with the spirits of dead relatives.

Many centuries ago the Church tried to offset this seasonal emphasis by introducing “All Saints Day” on November first. It was also called “All Hallows Day.” Then it became the custom to call the evening before, “All Hallow E’n.”
Trying to Christianize a pagan calendar certainly is not working today. In fact, you might say that “All Saints Day” has been almost obliterated in favor of Halloween.”

I seen an interview of a former Satanists who is now a born again Christian, he said “I am giving a warning to all Christians out there Do Not allow your children to celebrate this evil day.”
The point here is not to suggest that participation in Halloween makes one a witch, or a devil-worshiper, or occultist. But I do believe that it is dishonoring to the Risen Savior whose coming was to “destroy the works of the devil”,

1John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

Another point: The Bible clearly tells us that God hates witchcraft. Should our children, who are an “inheritance of the Lord” be dressed up like witches and goblins? Come on, Christian parents. Think of what the Lord would say!!!

“There is a conspiracy being orchestrated with great care by those who hate the Christian system of values. They are dedicated to its destruction. A formidable army has been assembled on the battlefield, including the gay and lesbian movement; the Media and the street-corner pushers who are destroying our kids with drugs; the medical personnel who are slaughtering our unborn babies; the euthanasia organizations that are urging us to kill the old, sick and handicapped; the pornographers who are polluting our landscape; the media and universities who are committed to the humanistic perspective. ” I could name so many other things going on in this sin-cursed world.
There are two dangerous extremes to avoid with regard to our biggest Adversary .

Dismissing him as a myth. One Satanist who had confessed to murdering several people said he did it to gain power over 10,000 souls in hell. He said this was promised to him by the devil.
Beware of his devious deceptions. An old talk show the Phil Donahue Show once highlighted his insidious nature. There was a panel of so-called “experts” in the arena of religion, composed of and atheist, a Universalist, a Catholic priest, a New Age spokesman, and an Evangelical.

When asked about their view of hell, here were the answers:
• Atheist: no such thing as a soul, so no hell.
• Universalist: everyone goes to heaven after death.
• Catholic priest: ideal of hell is nonsense.
• New Ager: reincarnation takes place; no hell.

These thoughts from the world of the “Religious” should make us wake up, we need to be biblebeleivers and trust only in the word of God. If we are attending any place of worship that is not based on the truth of the Bible we need to move out and find the truth.
Glorifying Satan. This is the second extreme. He is not equal in power with God. In fact, he is not a god at all. He is a fallen angel. He wanted to be as God his pride took him down.

When our Lord was with us on this planet, He demonstrates over and over again His power over the evil one. Consider the slaughter of the innocents and how He escaped. Consider the Nazarene’s attempt to throw Him off a cliff. Or what about the temptation experience in the wilderness, and the Pharisees attempt to have Him murdered. His family rejected Him; Israel rejected Him, Most of His followers left Him. And there was Gethsemane and Calvary. But through it all, He was the victor.

John 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
John 12:32 And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
John 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.
John 14:31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
What’s the matter, don’t I believe in ghosts? Oh, yes, but I call them by their real name–demons or devils. Christians have nothing to do with them. They worked the works of wickedness.
Ezekiel 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.
Ezekiel 18:5 But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right,
Halloween history and customs.

The Bible warns: “There must never be anyone among you who . . . consults ghosts or spirits, or calls up the dead.”

Deuteronomy 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
Deuteronomy 18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
Deuteronomy 18:12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

Samhain: The origin of Halloween can be traced to this “ancient pagan festival celebrated by Celtic people over 2,000 years ago,” states The World Book Encyclopedia. “The Celts believed that the dead could walk among the living at this time. During Samhain, the living could visit with the dead.”

However, the Bible clearly teaches that the dead
Ecclesiastes 9:4 For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion.
Ecclesiastes 9:5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

Halloween costumes, candy, and trick or treat: According to the book Halloween—An American Holiday, An American History, some of the Celts wore ghoulish costumes so that wandering spirits would mistake them for one of their own and leave them alone. Others offered sweets to the spirits to appease them. In medieval Europe, the Catholic clergy adopted local pagan customs and had their adherents go from house to house wearing costumes and requesting small gifts. The Bible, on the other hand, does not permit merging false religious practices with the worship of God.

2Corinthians 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
2Corinthians 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
Ghosts, vampires, werewolves, witches, and zombies: These have long been associated with the evil spirit world. (Halloween Trivia) The Bible clearly states that we should oppose wicked spirit forces, not celebrate with them.
Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

“Halloween pumpkins, or jack-o’-lanterns: In medieval Britain, “supplicants moved from door to door asking for food in return for a prayer for the dead,” and they would carry “hollowed-out turnip lanterns, whose candle connoted a soul trapped in purgatory.” (Halloween—From Pagan Ritual to Party Night) Others say that the lanterns were used to ward off evil spirits. During the 1800’s in North America, pumpkins replaced turnips because they were plentiful as well as easy to hollow out and carve. The beliefs behind this custom—the immortality of the soul, purgatory, and prayers for the dead—are not based on the Bible.”
Ezekiel 18:3 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel.
Ezekiel 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

One of the earliest works on the subject of Halloween is from Scottish poet John Mayne, who, in 1780, made note of pranks at Halloween; “What fearfu’ pranks ensue!”, as well as the supernatural associated with the night, “Bogies” (ghosts), influencing Robert Burns’ “Halloween” (1785).

Why would any true born-again child of God the most holy, and righteous father, want to celebrate this day very evil and wicked day. Why would we allow our children to participate in this wicked day? Knowing it has been one of the biggest days for child sacrificing. This does not glorify our Lord at all, but makes him grieve.

WHERE HE LEADS I WILL FOLLOW
I can hear my Savior calling,
I can hear my Savior calling,
I can hear my Savior calling,
“Take thy cross and follow, follow Me.”
Where He leads me I will follow,
Where He leads me I will follow,
Where He leads me I will follow,
I’ll go with Him, with Him all the way.
I’ll go with Him thro’ the garden,
I’ll go with Him thro’ the garden,
I’ll go with Him thro’ the garden,
I’ll go with Him, with Him all the way.
Where He leads me I will follow,
Where He leads me I will follow,
Where He leads me I will follow,
I’ll go with Him, with Him all the way.
I’ll go with Him thro’ the judgement
I’ll go with Him thro’ the judgement
I’ll go with Him thro’ the judgement
I’ll go with Him, with Him all the way.
Where He leads me I will follow,
Where He leads me I will follow,
Where He leads me I will follow,
I’ll go with Him, with Him all the way.
He will give me grace and glory,
He will give me grace and glory,
He will give me grace and glory,
And go with me, with me all the way.
Where He leads me I will follow,
Where He leads me I will follow,
Where He leads me I will follow,
I’ll go with Him, with Him all the way.
WE CAN’T FOLLOW HIM AND SATAN AT THE SAME TIME!!!

Love and Prayers
