“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” (Isaiah 5:20,21)
Halloween is of the devil. Don’t let the world fool you into thinking it is innocent. Bringing your kids out trick-or-treating is not what God desires. The people of this world don’t care about you or living for God. Therefore, doing things that He would reject is what they enjoy the most. These people know how dark the holiday is and still participate in it anyway. They say they love to be spooked, and this day is all about that. Being scared is what people enjoy when they deck themselves out in their costumes. Many people also go to parties, where alcohol is served, along with people seeking orgies. And just looking at people on this day, you see them walking around in lustful and scary outfits. But my question is this: is it ok to compromise your faith for one day of debauchery? Are you ok with quenching the Holy Spirit just to appease what your flesh desires? You know better than to celebrate the Devil’s holiday if you call yourself a Christian. If you were to look up the origins of Halloween, you would see how pagan it really is. And if you were to walk into a Halloween store, is it for God or against Him?
“Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:19-23)
What has happened to people in this world? In times past, Christians came together against Halloween. However, in today’s society people get upset if a person speaks out against it. It appears that the morals of our society have taken a turn for the worst. Do we still have people in Christianity that are against holidays like Halloween? Of course, we do. However, it is far less as years go by. The people who are led by the Spirit of God also warn people about the evils of this day. How people are choosing to be on the path of destruction, being for Halloween. So what happens when people go out trick-or-treating, attend parties or haunted houses, give out candy, and more on this day? They are telling God that He does not matter to them. Indulging in what is dark and evil means more than abstaining from it. So what can we do instead on this day? Well, here are some ideas. You could pass out gospel tracts and/or Bibles to kids, or even witness to people. Another option is to turn off your lights and not participate. Did you know that Reformation day is on the 31st, so reflecting on it is also worthwhile. Amen.
