SHOULD CHRISTIANS CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN?
 
As the Israelites were getting ready to go into the promised land God had specifically told Joshua in chapter 23 verse 11-13, “Take good heed therefore unto yourselves, that ye love the LORD your God. Else if ye do in any wise go back, and cleave unto the remnant of these nations, even these that remain among you, and shall make marriages with them, and go in unto them, and they to you: Know for a certainty that the LORD your God will no more drive out any of these nations from before you; but they shall be snares and traps unto you, and scourges in your sides, and thorns in your eyes, until ye perish from off this good land which the LORD your God hath given you.” 
 
The Lord was not trying to “hold back” anything from Israel that was for their good. He wanted them to know that “making covenant” with those that weren’t “HIS” would bring snares and traps to them. He also said if they did marry them and enter into their idolatry that God would not drive the enemy out of their lands. Unfortunately for Israel, they went into captivity and stayed that way because of their sin of rebellion.
 
Any time that we partner with the “dark side”, which opposes God and what he says is not good for us, we are in rebellion just like the Israelites. This brings me to Halloween. Halloween is the day that all witches call their most “holy” day of the year. It is the day of child sacrifice and blood shed of innocents by those that celebrate Halloween. It is not a day that holds anything godly in it at all.
 
When I was a child nearly 70 years ago, I celebrated Halloween it seemed innocent enough. We put on costumes and went door to door “begging trick or treat” for candy.  This is how Satan does anything. He tries to make the things of darkness look enticing, just like he did with Adam and Eve. Over the years since those days of my childhood, the true colors of this unholy day have emerged with violence, bloodshed and more. The days of hiding what it is are no longer hidden. Witches talk about their “holy” day on television and the internet. Many have talked about their “covens of Satan” where they denounce Christ and curse Christians. It is anything but godly what they do. They have “come out of the closet” and want to destroy the Kingdom of God. 
 
Christians that think that it is innocent to celebrate this day have no idea what it is like for a parent to have had their child stolen and sacrificed. They come back with “it is only a fun day. “ “It’s a time for kids  to dress up and enjoy the season.” Or “I don’t worship the devil.” This again, is a lie that Satan has fed them. If we pretend that it isn’t an evil day, then it will be okay. It is no wonder that this nation is in serious trouble when the House of God endorses this day with “Halloween parties” or “Trick or Trunk” activities being held in the church. It is like the days of Israel. Idolatry has crept into the sanctuary, and God has lifted his hand of protection.
 
I repented from celebrating this unholy day years ago when I learned the truth about it. I will not have any type of decorations or anything in my home or our ministry that say that this holiday is okay. It is not okay with God. In Ephesians 5:11 it says, “And have NO FELLOWSHIP with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove (rebuke) them.” If God says no fellowship, then He means NO FELLOWSHIP whatsoever! By celebrating this day, you willingly or ignorantly have united with Satan. If you have, then I suggest you repent. There is a day coming when we will be judged for the things we have done since we got saved. I don’t think anyone wants those works burned because of ignorance. I think each of us want to hear, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” Don’t be rebellious and continue in this evil practice. It tells us that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft. All witchcraft is a sin according to God, even that which is done in ignorance. Teach your children and grandchildren the truth of this day and why you don’t celebrate it. 
 
Some may think I am harsh with the stand I make on this subject, but I would rather stand with the Word of God and teach truth than be held accountable for not doing so. Love has to be tough at times to change wrong behavior.
 
So, now that you know that Christians should never celebrate Halloween in any way, it is up to you to make the choice. I pray you make the right one.

ABRAHAM – PART 10
THE RETURN TO BETH-EL
 
Chapter 13 of Genesis tells of Abram’s return to the land God had promised him. Abram, Sarai, nephew Lot, and all their possessions left Egypt, escorted out by Egyptian soldiers who were to make sure of their total exit from Egypt.
 
Abram initially went to the dry place south of Beth-el, the Negev, for a brief period before returning to his place near Beth-el, the “house of God.” It is the place where he had previously built an altar unto the Lord. He once again worshipped there as he called upon the name of the Lord.
 
It is the “promised land” to which God had sent him upon leaving Haran and his old life. Abram had returned to God and His will. The promise God had made Abram (Gen. 12:2), to make him a great name and a great nation, would soon be made a covenant as Abram remained there in obedience to God’s plan.
 
This type of life scenario has been “played out” in the lives of millions of Christians over the years. They are called unto salvation. They respond and they follow God for a season, the early part of their Christian experience. They are “born again,” a new life in God’s “land of promise.” They have the joy of the Lord. They have become “the house of the Lord” as His Holy Spirit has “tabernacled” within them. (I Corinthians 6:19) It is that “first love” of the Lord.
 
Unfortunately for many, as time goes by, they drift away into that “dry place” where they are not “feeling it” the same as at the start, like Abram in the Negev. Some even backslide into a former way of sin, as Abram did in going to Egypt (a type of sin bondage).  Jesus spoke this about the “church” (the believers) in Ephesus (Revelation 2:4 NKJV) when He said to them, “I have this against you, that you have left your first love.”
 
Just as Abram returned to “the house of God”, Beth-el, so we should return from the dry place to our “first love” for God. We should daily be refreshed in the joy of our salvation.
 
I Corinthians 6:19 (NKJV) says, “…your body is the temple (tabernacle) of the Holy Spirit who is in you…” A “temple” is made for worship. God cherishes your worship and praise and thanksgiving (Psalm 100). It is refreshing to your soul and your body. 
 
Return to your Beth-el.

The evil and dangerous holiday of Halloween is just a few days away. Regardless of ones opinion about it...It is NOT just an innocent day on the calendar to “dress up” in your favorite costume and go “trick or treating”. Please don’t be duped by the devil...And teach your precious children that it’s just an innocent fun day. NO it is NOT and as parents you’re responsible for what you’re teaching them. No matter what your thoughts are about it...If you claim to be a Christian; You best stay clear of this evil day. For you will be celebrating Satan with the satanists, the witches and the warlocks. As you’re watching your sweet children having their “fun” just know that hundreds of other innocent boys and girls will be offered up on an altar as a sacrifice to their god Satan. Those who say they’re a Christian has no business sharing in this evil day in absolutely no way. As much as we love the little children they do NOT get candy on that night from our house...No matter who they are. As for me and my house we will serve God and we will stand up for His standards of holiness and we will not participate in any way in this satanic day. Would you seriously pray about it and ask God to show you the raw truth about this evil day that many of you are teaching your children to celebrate simply by participating in it. Many years ago I did a teaching on....”The Truth About The Not So Hidden Dangers of Halloween”. It was an eye opener for many as for the first time they really began to understand what it was all about; And the dangers of the doors they were opening simply by celebrating it in any way. Beware and take note of the words spoken (below) by the now deceased founder of The Church of Satan, Anton Lavey. “I am glad that Christian parents let their children worship the devil at least one night out of the year.”
