Each year I look at what is taking place on and near Halloween, and it really disturbs me that people are so into the different events. So many houses are decorated with ghosts, demons, witches, skeletons, grave stones, jack o’-lanterns and more. This is not even including the haunted houses, of which have these things all throughout their homes. People even dress up like the dead, in order to scare those that pay to come through. What I just described doesn’t even include the haunted mazes that have people dressed up as zombies and the immodest clothing people are wearing when they go out and about on Halloween and to these events. Truly, there is a demonic and sensual spirit in all of this. If you cannot see this in what I described, then I will tell you plainly that the Holy Spirit is not living inside of you. If it was, then your eyes would be opened to the abomination that is taking place in stores, houses, and in people’s hearts around this time and Halloween. You would have to be blinded to the darkness of this holiday if you still participate in what I mentioned above. This means that if you decorate your house for this holiday or allow your kids to trick-or-treat, then you are only living for Satan and not God. What a hypocrite you are, if you say you believe in Jesus and still allow yourself to participate in the day of the Devil. And if you don’t believe me in saying that Halloween is evil, then start reading the Bible and you will be convicted of the same vial things that I’ve already mentioned.
The Lord is our light and our strength. If you desire to follow Him, then why not allow His light to expel the darkness in your life. It would be much better to get rid of the things that He hates, then keep evil and wicked things in your life. Now please read what Paul said, 1“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. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he? All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.” (1 Corinthians 10:21-23) Halloween is one of those things that drives the Holy Spirit out of our lives. This is because of the dark and devilish nature of it. Therefore, it is not of God but of the Devil. Truly, if you love the Lord, then start living for Him, by not participating in this wicked holiday. I come to you as God would advise me to also. For Paul also said 2“have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” (Ephesians 5:11) As Christians, our job is to expose the darkness in the things of this world and Halloween should be one of them. So in summary, God does not approve of the dark deeds of this world, but only Satan does, for he is in charge of all things that make people get the chills and feel frightened. Horror films and others that include witchcraft or sorcery is in this category also, that we should avoid. So think about what you read today. If Jesus would not participate in Halloween, but speak out against it also, why would you?
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray for every person who is confused by the lifestyle they are living, but still say they believe in You. Truly, if they desired to know You, then there would be no more confusion but only clarity in their minds. They would not be doing things without Your knowledge that it is evil, if they were studying Your words in the Bible and applying what You say in their lives. We are either for You or against You. Either You are guiding us or we are or someone else is. Either way, anything apart from Your presence is only leading us on the path of destruction, which I fear that many believers are on right now. Lord, there is a wicked and vial holiday coming up that I know that many people that say they believe in You participate in. That holiday is Halloween. This day and the days leading up unto it is the works of darkness and of the devil, and I pray that people will wake up to the wickedness there of. Anything that doesn’t build up a person, but causes them to be frightened, is not what You prescribe for us, but only Satan. He wishes that people are horrified by the horror films and haunted houses, in order to scare them stiff, but You know as well as I do that this is demonic. Therefore, I pray that You will convict people of their sins. May people wake up to follow You and leave this wicked day behind them. May they no longer decorate their houses in favor of this day, or participate in anything that is for it. I know that You have the power to deliver such people from the darkness they are in, and lead them into You light . Thank You for convicting me of my wrongs, that I could repent and come unto You fully. I love You Lord more than the things of this world. You are my greatest delight. I trust in You. Amen.
