Just looking around my neighborhood I am very saddened by what I see. People who proclaim to be Christians have Halloween decorations outside their house. And it isn’t subtle either. A lot of them have gone all out and there houses now look like they are a portal to the evil spirits. Wow! How can people who proclaim to be for God and also be for Satan and his wicked holiday? This makes no sense to me and I feel like going up to each of their houses and telling them how offensive their houses now are to me and other true Christians. As we are striving to have Jesus in our lives daily, they are purposely bringing in demonic forces into our neighborhood, which is so evil. And how interesting is that one of these houses I know is from a Mormon family. In his yard and porch, there are gravestones, ghosts, skeletons, skulls, jack-a-lanterns, and other spooky things. Then, on Sundays, he and his family go off to their church and proceed to act all religious. This is ridiculous and leads me to believe that God has not impacted their lives. If He had, then they would not be celebrating such a wicked and vile holiday along with the world. You see, the different stores, news media, TV Shows, and movies, all make Halloween out to be oh so innocent. They say that all it is doing is causing people to be spooked, which is harmless.
So is God for scaring people? The answer is NO! How about decorating our houses with things like skeletons, skulls, gravestones, ghosts, witches, jack-o-lanterns, and other things? The answer is NO! How about going out with everyone else on Halloween night in scary or non-scary costumes? The answer is NO! How about going to a haunted house? The answer is NO! We are told to “have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” (Ephesians 5:11) To “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.” (3 John 1:11) 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) When people participate during this month with Halloween decorations and go out on that day, they are telling God that He really doesn’t matter to them. Instead, doing that which is evil is ok in their lives. Therefore, they open up portals to the demonic realm unknowingly because of this. It is my prayer that people wake up to the darkness of Halloween. That they will be given eyes to see the dangers therein and no longer be like unto the world, by no longer participating in it any longer.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people will begin to see how far they have strayed from You. That they will finally see how conforming to this world only blasphemes Your holy Name. That it breaks Your heart when we fall into sin. If people just read the Bible, they would know right away where they stand with You. That they are not a friend to You, but a friend to this world and repent. We are getting very close to Halloween and many of these so-called Christians have their wicked and vial decorations outside of their houses. It is so disturbing to come home from work and to have to drive past all of these decorated houses in my neighborhood. It makes me want to scream, but I know that I cannot make a scene and have it be helpful to them. Instead, I will go forth and witness to them when the time is right. Even in Spirit and truth will I go forth and talk to different people. May there be love and respect for all these people. I wish that they would see how far they have fallen, but only You can do this. Only by way of the Holy Spirit can people be drawn out of the ways of this world and into Your awesome presence. So give me words to speak to these people. Show them dreams and visions that will also lead them out of this evil practice. You are my God and I worship You. I just pray that more people will desire to follow You the whole year long. There should have never been a month set apart for Halloween, but Satan has put his clutches into people. And now it appears to be good, where it is so wicked. Lord, open people’s eyes to see the evils in Halloween and no longer participate in it again. Give them clean hands and wash them of all these sins and others as well. I believe in You, Jesus. I love You more than anything this world offers me, God. Amen.
