Greetings and “Happy Halloween”
The message I have today is not a pleasant one. I pray that your heart will be open.
l have never understood how so many of my Christian brothers and sisters are so utterly content with celebrating Halloween. I have to assume they do it out of complete ignorance as to the significance of what happens that night, and the atrocities that are committed within the Satanic community that exists all around us. I also have to assume they are ignorant of the meaning of the costumes they so readily don and even more readily encourage their children to don, and the significance of everything else about this “holiday.”
God help us. Even we who claim to follow the banner of Christ are celebrating pagan holidays and enacting occult rituals! And we somehow have the nerve to question God as to why we don’t see change? Why we don’t see Him moving?! We are so cavalier about doing things that are “just for fun” but are simultaneously grieving the Holy Spirit but then we are surprised when God doesn’t do what we were hoping. I don’t think so. We don’t get to do that! We have no right to question God while we so blatantly disregard His commandments! We have only to get on our knees, weep, and repent for our sins whether of commission or omission. “I didn’t know!” some people cry out, well – it’s your job to know! Especially as a parent or authority in the Body. That’s the funny thing about ignorance – we are commanded to seek out the Truth by our Lord and Savior. When we truly walk circumspectly, we begin to see the Truth behind the veil of lies that our Enemy draws across our eyes every day in our society. Ignorance is not something we can legitimately blame – it is our responsibility as believers to know and see the evil around us and refuse to take part in it! If we do any less, we are failing Christ Himself as well as the rest of the Body. Not to mention those of us who have children – I would be trembling before God on the subject. What is it our loving Jesus said about those who cause one of the “little ones” to stumble? Oh, yes. That’s right, it would be better that they kill themselves than to do that, specifically to tie a millstone around their necks and drown in the depths of the sea (Luke 17:2; Mark 9:42). You think allowing or, God-forbid, encouraging your precious and innocent children to partake in pagan rituals that are idolatrous, superstitious and further the agenda of Satan is not causing them to stumble? Think again, my brothers and sisters. God loves you, but He hates what you are doing.
Those costumes you find so cute are representative of several different things, none of which are good. Halloween has been celebrated in different ways by different people groups over the centuries. Over time it has changed in small ways, but the overall thrust has always been the same. Some of the changes are reflected in the meanings behind the costumes. They can be representative of the disembodied spirits of fallen beings – otherwise known as Nephilim which did, in fact, walk this earth at one time, and may still do so. Or they may represent the spirits or gods of the earth to whom sacrifices must be given (i.e. food or candy) so that no evil will befall the people during the winter. They also can represent the fear that is such an integral part of all pagan and occult practices and beliefs – they can be disguises. It has been believed that the dance macabre or the bodies of the dead rise on Halloween or Samhain, to have one last chance to seek vengeance upon those who wronged them in life. Thus we disguise ourselves so the vengeful spirits will not be able to find us to harm us for past wrongs. This is but the tip of this horrific iceberg.
And let’s not ignore the glorification of all things dark, evil, bloody, violent, and even sexually deviant that takes place here. This “holiday” is a time when everything that is evil in the world is glorified, magnified, and actually worshiped. That, all by itself, is enough for me to say that we should absolutely not take part in it, but sadly, the response I would and probably will get from many of you is, “Well, I just don’t feel convicted about that.” Or “we have freedom in Christ.” Stupidity at its finest. I am sorry, but if you don’t feel convicted – then you need to figure out what in your life is allowing you to be so insensitive to the Holy Spirit. If you are truly hungering and thirsting after righteousness, the Spirit of God within you will jump at the Truth within this message. But if you are dead inside, or you have so seared the voice of God by continually going against Him, you will ignore and reject my words and you and your family will suffer because of it. That is no threat, but merely a fact.
Again, everything about this “holiday” is steeped in evil, satanic, and occult beliefs and practices. The fact that things appear to be fine because we as a society have accepted these practices as normal is entirely irrelevant. In cannibalistic societies it’s completely acceptable for me to kill a man and eat his heart to gain his power. Does that make it actually okay? Obviously not. God’s standard is what we compare to, not ours. And I haven’t even gone into the darkest reality of what Satanists do in “celebration” on that night. Of course they have many rituals throughout the year and Halloween just happens to be one more, but the point is that horrendous and vile things are done to innocent people that night. So while we’d love to think this whole thing is just a fun time to get dressed up and eat candy, that is all a lie. We need to wake up and realize the evil we are allowing into our lives and into the lives of the weakest and most vulnerable among us – our children. We are feeding them poison. Is there no sense of conviction in any of you? My heart breaks for the evil that we as the supposed “Bride of Christ” are committing. We are defiling that which is innocent. I say this not to condemn you but to encourage you to repent. Our loving Savior is always willing to let us back into the fold and hold us in His arms. However, that can only happen when we are willing to admit our sin and walk away completely, looking into the eyes of our Savior and nowhere else. It is so easy for us to just sweep things like this under the rug. To pretend that these things are not as important as I am stating. But that is merely Satan accomplishing his mission. What better way to defeat us than to do it in such a way as we will never even realize it is happening? We are offering our lives up to him, instead of to our Creator and Master. We are slaves to only one master, either to sin or to righteousness. How often do we claim to serve one with our lips, but glorify the other with our actions. Hypocrisy at its finest.
We as the modern “church” of God are really a piece of work. But despite all our grievous sin and rebellion that we pretend doesn’t exist, there is still hope for us. It is not too late – yet. There will come a time, when the great Deception takes place, and those who allow themselves to be deceived will be lost forever to the darkness. Read Revelation. It is coming. So prepare yourselves and your children. Educate yourselves so that you and your families will no longer be deceived. Walk circumspectly. Test everything by the Holy Word of God – and by that I do NOT mean the Message “bible” or any other such perversion of Scripture. In fact, understanding the true history of our Bible in all its beauty and the deep sacrifice of so many powerful men and women of God to preserve it over the centuries, is a good place to start educating yourself if you haven’t already. As well as the particular subject of translation and why some versions of the Bible are truly better than others, while some are utterly blasphemous. With the internet, truly, we cannot possibly claim ignorance to virtually anything. We can only claim laziness and selfishness. If we do not know, then more than likely it is because we have chosen not to look for the answers.
With all this said, I pray you allow the Lord to grow the seeds sown here in your life. Let them fall upon good soil, that you can grow strong in Him. May the Truth bear its wondrous and beautiful fruit giving us real freedom from sin so we can walk in purity and holiness all the days of our lives. I pray you walk ever closer to our Father each day He gives you breath. Grace and peace to you my brothers and sisters in Christ.
