" The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. "
" Jesus ... said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. "
" My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge..."
It is obvious, that many are ignorant of the true nature of Halloween. A little while ago, in a conversation with a man in Panama City, he made reference to Halloween as Satan's holiday. I told him that he was absolutely correct, and he was. He evidently knew more about Halloween, than many of the people who live around us.
It is relatively easy to determine if something is good or evil. Jesus, in John 10:10, contrasted Himself to Satan by noting that the thief ( the Devil ) comes to steal, kill, and destroy. If a practice contributes to life and holiness, it is of God. If a practice contributes to crime, sickness, injury, or death, it is of the Devil. This goes far beyond abortion, which is still murder in the eyes of God, even though the servants of the Devil have changed the name from murder to abortion. Why is it that no one seems to care about the welfare of the unborn child? Is it, perhaps, because the unborn child can't vote? Don't worry,- these evil politicians will stand before God, to be judged, at the great white throne.
For several years, I have had in my files an article that outlines the origins of Halloween, and I am sharing that information here. The title was, " Halloween: Kid's Treat or Pagan Trick? " If someone can provide me with the necessary documentation, I will gladly give credit to the original author.
The roots of Halloween go back several hundred years before Christ. The Celts, and their priests, the Druids did much evil, including barbaric human sacrifices. This is recorded in ancient Greek and Roman writings, as well as in early records found in Ireland. By 47 A.D. Rome finally defeated the Druids in England, and outlawed human sacrifices. November 1st was the Celtic new year. October 31st was celebrated by the Druids with many human sacrifices, and a festival honoring their sun god, and Samhnain ( Satan ) the Lord of the dead. They believed that the sinful souls of those who died during the year were in a place of torment, and would be released, only if Samhain was pleased with their sacrifices. Many of the ancient evil practices still exist today, among modern Satanists, including animal sacrifices, and an occasional human sacrifice ( murder ).
Pope Gregory III incorporated the festival, minus the human sacrifices, into the church as " All Hallows Eve, or All Saints Day. The term Halloween comes from All Hallows Eve.
The founding fathers of America, refused to permit the holiday to be observed, because they knew it was a pagan holiday. Halloween was not widely celebrated in the U.S. until about 1900.
The widespread problem of harmful substances such as razor blades, drugs, poisons, needles, etc. being placed in the Halloween treats, here in America, is no accident. Testimonies of several ex-Satanists show that the children killed or injured, by these contaminated treats, are sacrifices to Satan ( or Samhain ). Satanists throughout the world continue to perform animal, and occasional human sacrifice, on Halloween.
When I was a child, I ignorantly celebrated Halloween, and went trick or treating. If you stop and think about it, what greater evil is there, than to teach your children that it is ok to go around threatening people with a " trick " if they don't give you candy,- something that isn't good for you anyway!
I have renounced that evil activity, and you should also. God forgives sins done in ignorance, but if a person continues to sin, after being confronted with their sin, there is no forgiveness. Christ didn't die on the cross for you, so that you could continue evil practices. He died on the cross so that you could repent, and accept God's gift of a new heart, and a new spirit, thus becoming " born from above ", and start down that pathway that leads to eternal life, so that when you need to be saved at judgment, you will be.
