Halloween is around the corner, but there is a warning from God to every Christian who participates in it on this evil holiday. God has revealed to me that this is the day of the Devil and every person who celebrates it, worship him and are his on that day. And why would you want to be any part of the kingdom of the devil on any day of the year? The answer is that as Christians, we are to tell the devil to get behind us and not go along with his evil plans. This wicked and vial day is filled with witchcraft, sorcery, magic, ghosts, dark arts, haunted and decorated houses, worldly costumes and parties, and much more unthinkable things that I cannot even speak of. We are to be the light of the world and not a part of the wicked acts of this day. Surely, if you still desire to celebrate Halloween, then your spiritual life must not exist. For if it did, you would have your lights off on this day, while keeping your children home safe, or go out and witness. Going out on the streets, on this day, should only be to witness the truths of this day to people who are lost. One thing that we can tell them is that we are to “be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:2) Please know that celebrating Halloween with your children is making a mockery of what God says is right and wrong in His sight.
Paul, the apostle, taught us, “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” (Ephesians 5:11) “Abstain from all appearance of evil.” (1 Thessalonians 5:22) “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.” (1 Corinthians 10:21) And when we participate with the people of this world on Halloween, we are living in darkness, and have no cares about doing what is right. We are warned to abstain from anything that appears to be evil on the surface and that is exactly what Halloween is. When we go out on the streets with our kids in costumes, Satan now has us in his grip. Why do I say that? Because this day is often also filled with going to haunted houses, watching scary or witch-like movies, going to parties, and more. Now, What I am teaching you may not like, but that means your heart is not in the right place with God also. Indulging in the dark arts means that your heart is far from God and that you have fallen into sin. And if this is the case for you, then cry out to God for forgiveness. The Lord God’s mercy is for You and you can be cleansed by the blood of Jesus today. No longer dwell in the darkness of this world but bask in the light of Jesus, our Lord. Read the Bible daily and pray often. Then, you will start doing things that are noteworthy, even fulfilling God’s will for your life.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people in the faith will stay far away from Halloween and not participate. That they will not allow themselves or their children to indulge in such things of the devil. There was a time in our lives that we were very sinful and didn’t care about doing that which was evil, but those days are past us now. We are now in the faith and are born again. So please remind people to continually abstain from any appearance of evil. That we do not conform to the ways of this world but stay apart from the evils therein. Thank You, Lord, for teaching me Your ways and for shining the light upon such an evil and wicked day. Surely, the enemy has clouded people’s minds to have them think that it is innocent to bring their kids out trick-or-treating on this worldly holiday. He has slowly allowed the darkness of this world to seep into people’s lives, that the Holy Spirit will not lead them any longer. Oh, how evil and conniving Satan is. To his desires for my life and my family, I say, “get behind me Satan. You will not have any more part in my life now or forever. I am sick of your lies and I am now on the Lord’s side”. Lord, Your ways are true and faithful. Keep me ever seeking You and to not fall victim to the lies of the enemy again. I know that You have called us to be in Your light and even become the light of the world. But how can we do this if darkness remains in us? The answer is that we cannot hold true to what You want us to do, Lord, if we continue to do the things that our flesh desires instead. I love You more than what this world can offer me. I give You praise and honor, this day and forever. Amen.
