I have written a few posts about this subject in the past. And God has given me assignments to write about it, because well to be honest, to celebrate Halloween, as a believer or a non-believer, is wrong.
It offends God in so many ways. Every year, the sense of how wrong it is, seems to be something to write and propels me to warn. But do people really heed it? I don’t know, all I can do is be obedient to God.
But I want to write from the perspective of a Christian. Who no longer celebrates Halloween.
See, I have been there, and done that. I was one of those who dressed up, thought it was o.k. And well those years as I look back were sad, dark years in my life. Years frankly, where I was lost. Though, I thought I was right with God. I was spiritually in the dark, believing a lie. I see my growth now. I see the discernment I have. I can honestly look back, and say I was in the dark, but I am walking in the light. I am calling you to see too, so you can walk in the light.
Now, and its been many years, I won’t even serve Candy, with the pretense of being a Christian who puts scriptures on candy, to give light. I have departed from it completely. I won’t open my door, I hide behind my door, turn the light off, and close the drapes.
I don’t believe churches should celebrate it as well. Or even have an alternative for kids, because it sends a mixed signal. Who are you serving? How can you say you are serving God, if you celebrate it?
COME, MY PEOPLE, ENTER THOU INTO THY CHAMBERS, AND SHUT THY DOORS ABOUT THEE: HIDE THYSELF AS IT WERE FOR A LITTLE MOMENT, UNTIL THE INDIGNATION BE OVERPAST. ISAIAH 26:20 King James.
Either we are holy for God, or we are not. If you are celebrating it, you are not mindful to be holy, in the sight of God, and your white garments are stained with sin. You are actually abusing what Christ did on the cross for you, to take your sins away. Grace does not cover purposeful disobedience to sin. Think about that. He has called us to have discernment, to know between good and evil. If you are celebrating it, you are getting your white holy garments dirty with sin.
Its been many years, since I have totally cut off any kind of participation in this pagan holiday. But I have learned some things, that I want to share with you. To one Christian to another.
I want to do this in love. But I forewarn you, I am going to be blunt, and it may be harsh. Though it is not my place to judge you, or condemn you. But I will pull out my sword of truth here. I do have my armor of God on. But I am going to do everything in my own ability, with what God has taught me, to pull you away from hells fire!
AND OTHERS SAVE WITH FEAR, PULLING THEM OUT OF THE FIRE; HATING EVEN THE GARMENT SPOTTED BY THE FLESH. NOW UNTO HIM THAT IS ABLE TO KEEP YOU FALLING, AND TO PRESENT YOU FAULTLESS BEFORE THE PRESENCEE OF HIS GLORY WITH EXCEEDING JOY. TO THE ONLY WISE GOD OUR SAVIOR, BE GLORY AND MAJESTY, DOMINITION AND POWER, BOTH AND EVER AMEN. Jude 1:23 King James.
Folks think about it, if you are celebrating Halloween, how does that bring glory to God? It does not. And every Christian should have that front and center, in their mind, body, and soul. Everything we must do, must bring glory to God.
It must be emphasized, we will all be judged by God Himself. The Book of Life will be opened, and what will it say about each one of us?
But if you can look at this from the perspective of truth, and our Lord, and yes even my experiences, you may gain some insight to depart from this holiday as well. And not celebrate it. Not participate in it. To not accept it as o.k. because everybody does it, and to actually see, the devils job is to deceive Christians so they can fall. So they can miss the callings God has placed on them, when they celebrate this holiday.
Lets start with that last thought….
As a Christian, I want to remind you, that you are growing on the vine with Christ. You may be a baby Christian, you may be a seasoned Christian. But if you are not growing as a Christian, it could be, because you are stopping your own growth in Christ. Those branches will be thrown into the fire. Those branches that are cut off. Because of sin.
IF A MAN ABIDE NOT IN ME, HE IS CAST FORTH AS A BRANCH, AND IS WITHERED; AND MEN GATHER THEM, AND CAST THEM INTO THE FIRE, AND THEY ARE BURNED. John 15:6 King James.
If you are celebrating Halloween, you are actually allowing spiritual curses into your own life, and you do not see, how the enemy is stopping your growth. But you are playing with your salvation. There are so many scriptures that tell us first of all, don’t have fellowship with darkness.
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. Ephesians 5:11-12.
Think about the seances, the sacrifices they make to the devil. On that night, and you are celebrating it Christian. Shame on you, for participating in the shedding of innocent blood! Look at our world folks. They don’t even hide it any more. Abortion is at an all time high, and do you know what God says about that? First, He says thou shalt not kill. But look at how he talks about innocent blood.
PSALM 106:35-40 KING JAMES.
BUT WERE MINGLED AMONG THE HEATHEN, AND LEARNED THEIR WORKS. AND THEY SERVED THIER IDOLS: WHICH WERE A SNARE UNTO THEM. YEA, THEY SACRIFICED THEIR SONS, AND THEIR DAUGHTERS UNTO DEVILS. AND SHED INNOCENT BLOOD, EVEN THE BLOOD OF THEIR SONS AND OF THEIR DAUGHTERS, WHOM THEY SACRIFICED UNTO THE IDOLS OF CANAAN; AND THE LAND WAS POLLUTED WITH BLOOD. THUS WERE THEY DEFILED WITH THEIR OWN WORKS, AND WENT A WHORING WITH THEIR OWN INVENTIONS. THEREFORE WAS THE WRATH OF THE LORD KINDLED AGAINST HIS PEOPLE INSOMUCH THAT HE ABHORRED HIS OWN INHERITANCE.
What do you think Halloween is? A game? Just a time to dress up? No, its very evil in its intention. It defies God, it calls the dead forward. It calls evil spirits forward. Witches do their business on that night.
Look the history up. It only has evil intentions. It is totally the opposite of who God is, and yet there you are as a Christian, handing out candy, dressing up, and you think its all so innocent, but its not.
Sadly…..You are promoting, these terrible evil spirits to even be on your children. By allowing them to dress up like that, teaching them from generation to generation to celebrate something that offends God. To God its saying here take my kids, I won’t honor God in this.
There are spiritual implications, that are principles that go into affect when anybody departs from God. They are allowing darkness into their own life, and they cannot distinguish the light from the darkness, because they are mixing the two together.
Look at this scripture. It talks about eating at the Lords table, and the devils table. You cannot eat that evil candy, that is meant for evil, and then want to eat at the Lords table. Communion. Holy Communion, with God cannot be mixed, with devils food.
YE CANNOT DRINK THE CUP OF THE LORD, AND THE CUP OF DEVILS: YE CANNOT BE PARTAKERS OF THE LORDS TABLE, AND OF THE TABLE OF DEVILS. I Corinthians 10:21 King James.
There are so many of them, and I will put references to the King James scriptures I have, and that folks have contributed to as well, so you can look them up.
I could write more on this, but I am going to just let these scriptures friends shared with me, to minister to you as well.
1 Corinthians 10:21 – Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
Ephesians 5:11 – And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove [them].
3 John 1:11 – Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.
2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
Thank you Hermanita Teresita for the above scriptures you contributed. And thank you Becky Morales for these scriptures below, that you have contributed. God bless you sisters, for your insight into this matter as well.
Leviticus 19:31 – Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I [am] the LORD your God.
1 John 4:1 – Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Kings 21:6 – And he made his son pass through the fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of the LORD, to provoke [him] to anger.
Revelation 21:8 – But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Colossians 2:8 – Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
To conclude this, I truly believe we do ourselves a disservice, by not heeding this. We limit ourselves, our growth, but more then anything, we offend our Lord. I am just at a point in my life, where I know I have walked for many years, but doing the wrong thing. I know I did. But I see where Christ has brought me from, and I am ever so grateful.
I look at my life, and I see how I reaped sorrow, and sadness, and so much more, because of my disobedience. My inability to really search the scriptures. And as you know, I always recommend King James scriptures.
But, if I can just spare someone, this. The curses, the darkness, the sin of it, yes I will share that.
I gladly tell you, and warn you, in love, even though I bring attention to some things that might scare you to do whats right. Because to be honest. The fear of God, is so needed for us, Christians. To not play with spiritual matters. But to fear God. Its the best thing we can do, and depart from evil. To trust God, by obedience, to fear Him, to depart from evil.
AND UNTO MAN HE SAID, BEHOLD THE FEAR OF THE LORD, THAT IS WISDOM; AND TO DEPART FROM EVIL IS UNDERSTANDING. JOB 28:28 King James.
BE NOT WISE IN THINE OWN EYES; FEAR THE LORD, AND DEPART FROM EVIL. Proverbs 3:7 King James.
BY MERCY AND TRUTH INIQUITY IS PURGED: AND BY THE FEAR OF THE LORD MEN DEPART FROM EVIL. Proverbs 16:6 King James.
To God be the glory, with thanks, to God for showing me His truths. I tell you this in love, but I tell you as a warning…..
As for arguing about this. I won’t even debate it. I learned this a long time ago. I began seeing the difference, from year to year. I plead the blood of Jesus over myself, in these matters, and those that contributed. See we know God. We know, what pleases Him, and we will not partake in this unholiness. We value our souls in Christ, we value what Christ did for us on that cross. I know this about my sisters, who contributed these scriptures.
Truth stands on its own merit. This is between you and God.
As a Christian are you deceived by the devil, by celebrating Halloween?
