“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.”
