“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)
The moment you step out to celebrate Halloween, you are telling God that He does not matter. You’d rather be in darkness then dwell in His light. You are choosing what the world says is good, and you are believing in their lies. They say it is harmless to take your kids out trick-or-treating. Buy some costumes and make them be whoever you want them to be. And don’t stop there. We got decorations for your house. Make sure to make it as spooky as you can. This way people can see your home and know that Halloween is meaningful to you. You don’t want kids to not go to your house because of your lack of decorations. This is what Satan and his followers want you to think during this time of year. They say look past the darkness, for it is all fun and games. But woe unto them who call evil good and good evil. There is no light in these types of people.
“(For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” (Ephesians 5:8-11)
So when someone asks you about Halloween, you should not feel obligated to participate in any of the month’s events. You should respect others, but at the same time, not saying anything positive about Halloween. Instead, there are alternatives to celebrating it, while allowing the light of Jesus to remain in you. You can celebrate Reformation Day. Martin Luther was key to the start of revival in the hearts of Christians worldwide. The hunger for God’s Word began like no other. That was in the year 1517, and the King James Bible was published not to long after this in 1611. So many people have given their lives for the sake of Jesus since that time. Persecution did not stop the revivals that began then and still happen today. Think about what people have done in the name of Jesus, the reformers, the martyrs. And take your focus and attention off of Halloween. It is my prayer that Christians at large stop celebrating it. Do this for the Lord’s sake. Amen.
