Celebrating Halloween

Oct 31, 2012 by     11 Comments    Posted under: Uncategorized

Tonight the ghosts and the goblins will be out in force knocking on doors and loading up on diabetic causing candies setting them up for a lifetime of health problems. I love skittles. Its always been my weakness. Once while as a soldier on the border of Serbia, I shared a packet of skittles with a Macedonian border guard there with us. You should have seen his eyes light up as the sugar rush he had never experienced took over his body almost instantly.

This pagan holiday of Halloween is more sinister than just dressing our kids up and participating in an age old ritual. The system has set this day up as a way to keep us enslaved to it.

Many families who come out of the world system see the backlash of friends and other family who think they are losing their minds. After all, Halloween is a fun time with memories filled with fun experiences. However as believers, we need to take care in being set apart from the world.

Be in it, NOT of it.

I don’t have to partake in the things the world does. I don’t have to enjoy the things the pagans do. The biggest wake up call to Christian pastors and so called “believers” should be taking a look around and seeing yourself participating in an activity that non-believers are participating in.

I remember something about the road being narrow and only few finding it. So what am I doing by dressing my kids up and doing what all the heathens are doing? Alas, we try to sidestep this glaring reality by calling our October events by different names. “Trunks for Treats, Fall Festivals”, or some other such name. But who are we really fooling.

IF you think for a second, you are going to raise your kids up just like the rest of the world, and somehow when they become adults they are going to live set-apart lives for our Messiah, you are seriously mistaken. Re-evaluate!

Deuteronomy 6:6-7
And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy CHILDREN, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

  • We really began to look at this holiday years back when we lived on government housing, and for 3 days before Halloween that year, a man in a small, red car was offering to give elementary school age kids a ride to school. That’s when it hit me that Satanists wait for this one day, and they have a high mass on it. I didn’t want any part of that. Then, throw in the absurdity of watching your child’s diet for 364 days, and then giving them bags and bags of candy, that was it. We stopped that year. And have never looked back.

    You like costumes? Throw a costume party.

  • i totally agree that helloween is evel

  • IT WAS FIRST CALL ALL HALLOWS EVE WICH IS FROM SAM HAYN WICH WAS PRACTICE BY DRUIDS WICH WHERE SATAN SLASH TREE WORSHIPERS THEY WOULD GO FROM DOOR TO DOOR DURING THIS TIME AND DEMAND FOOD MONEY GOLD CHILDREN WHAT EVER THEY WANT AND IF U DID NOT COMPLY THEY WOULD KILL U HINT TRICK OR TREAT

  • Last year, it was called the 2011 Nor’easter, but some actually call it the Halloween Nor’easter. It dumped snow everywhere in the NE and canceled a lot of the Halloween/Samhein festivities. In 2012, it was Hurricane Sandy that hit the same affected areas. I’ve never been prone to say that God uses natural disasters as a judgment, but I also think of Mitzrayim and think, hmm, it’s happened before. I may be off the deep end but what does everyone think of this?

  • @B.Solinsky, yes I thought the timing was incredible. I also thought it also might be Yahweh ironically saying ‘You want a show called Jersey Shore? I’ll give you a show called Jersey Shore’. (But I do pray for all the believers affected!)

  • Ya know… Winnie the Poo is named after my home town(http://www.just-pooh.com/history.html) . Just saying because I am now ashamed of this fact LoL

  • Its just another day to treat as common! A lot of times I forget it is even a holiday because we don’t even regard it. Oh and starburst aren’t kosher ahhh! Just FYI. Thanks for your obedience and being real. Praise Yeshua forever!

  • It’s a pain that many people/society don’t count Halloween as a real “holiday”, so that schools don’t feel bad about ‘celebrating’ it. My school is one of those. The hallways are decorated, we’re holding some school event for it, etc etc. It’s a shame.

  • I have never liked this holiday even before coming to the Lord. As kids we were not allowed in our candy bags until we returned home. We were constantly being scolded for reaching into our bags while out. When we got home my parents would dump all the candy on the table and sort through it. They threw out all baked goods and candy with peeled up wrappers. We did not understand, my parents would explain why they were throwing candy away. That did it for me! If there was an element of danger, then why send us up to complete strangers for candy? Especially when such an act is forbidden any other day!!!!
