Acknowledge That Halloween Is Evil

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” (Ephesians 5:11-16)

Acknowledge with me that Halloween is of the devil and that true followers of Jesus don’t celebrate it. People can claim to be Christians, but the fruits of their darkened faith is on display each year on this evil holiday. It can be celebrating Halloween by taking your kids out trick-or-treating (trunk-or-treating), decorating your house, attending parties and haunted houses, and watching Halloween-themed movies. These are the fruits of darkness, that are wicked, and it is a shame to even have to talk about such sinful people. Know that you cannot hide your sins before God. He can see it when you say you are not for Halloween. Watching movies like Harry Potter, Hocus Pocus, and other movies that are for Halloween shows you are for it. What you do in secret is seen in the light of God, and what you do evil in public is seen by man and God. People have been warned about the evils of this day and month, but so many people don’t care. They would rather live out their own lives, instead of living for God.

Do you think that God approves of Halloween costumes and you wearing them? What about the way your house is decorated? Does it bring in the Holy Spirit or mock Him? Of course, God does not approve of the vile and wicked activities on this day. So if you say you are a Christian, why not live out your faith on a daily basis? Don’t willfully walk in darkness any longer but give your sins over to the Lord today. Allow Him to forgive you of your wicked deeds. Say, “Father, I am sorry for willfully sinning during the day and month of Halloween. The costumes are no more, the decorations are no more, the trick-or-treating (trunk-or-treating) are no more, the parties are no more, and the movies are no more. I give it all to you, God. Take me as I am. Help me to live in this world, but not be of it. I am sorry for hurting You, Lord. Cast out every evil part that is left in me. I want to live for You. Take my hand, and lead me straightway to You. Forgive me of my sins. I love You. In the name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.”

  1. OH..what a dilemma for parents. The kids love to dress up and go out to grab as much candy as they can. And you don’t want them to resent you for making them miss out on all the fun. However, consider…this holiday has become increasingly dangerous for children who go Trick or Treating. Unless the candy is not eaten, there is always a chance of poisoning. It’s very easy to unwrap some candies such as Tootsie Roll Pops. Drugs can be injected into candy bars. Fentanyl is killing our children and candy contaminated by it can look just like what is found on store shelves. Of course, the odds are against that happening. But, ..they are YOUR Children. You don’t want to take chances with them. Also, unless you live in a safe area, the streets are a precarious place to be at night. Even more, the association with the occult -even in fun – is not God’s Will and getting involved with it can lead to opening a door to evil entities. So…use this holiday to teach your children about the dangers of the occult. Also, it’s important to explain to children about the dangers of playing with Ouija Boards, fortune tellers and Tarot Cards. You might not allow such things in your home. However, their friends’ parents may. So, instead of celebrating Halloween, invite other Christian families and choose a different night to have a Fall Party. Let the kids help plan the food and activities. They can dress up in storybook or Bible characters. Extend the fun by having them learn about those characters and share what they’ve learned with the others. A treasure hunt for candy can be just as exciting as trick or treating. Whatever you decide to do, wholesome fun can replace Halloween. Your children don’t have to be deprived. Choose a different night so you won’t be interrupted by Trick or Treaters. Get together and make wonderful memories.
