John 8:31 – 32 John 14:6
In order to defeat our enemy rather than be defeated by him, it is critical that we understand who he is, where he came from, where he gets his power, the means he uses to attack us, and the deceitfulness of his methods.
John 10:10 says it all in very plain language: “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.” This is the description Jesus applied to Satan. In stark and total contrast, Jesus claimed to himself.
FORMER SATAN WORSHIPPER: "I'M SHOCKED CHRISTIANS CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN"
Why do we? Two words; RELIGION AND MAN. Religion is Satan’s doorway always has been once he can get a religion to be tolerated to what has NOTHING to do with God he has deceived you. Man has called this “All Saints Day” but it is still against God. Therefore, it is a victory on Satan’s part. Nowhere in the Bible does it say this day is to be celebrated and if it does I will personally write a retraction. So please do send me clear and to the point scripture where it states this day is to be celebrated. I am surprised at how the world embraces this holiday because the title of All Saints' Day is a deceiving one. We have a picture in our minds that it seems holy, but there is nothing innocent or holy about it. This holiday is practiced all throughout South and Central America and distant parts of the world, and even in the United States. To the Spanish culture, it is called Día de Muertos, and they celebrate the dead through rituals and ceremonies and even cemetery visits.
What day is to be celebrated this month that God has commanded you? As a true follower of the one true God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob can you state what Holy-day is to be celebrated this month? Has your church or religion taught you what is holy to God this month? Or do we follow a day in the world that is embraced by witches, warlocks, and Satanist’s? As the religions slap a label and then deem it OK for the Christians to intertwine themselves with it? I have seen so many religions justify their actions to the point they have deceived themselves into a lie. It is sad because at this point it is not Satan fooling them anymore. They love the world more than they love God. Thus we can point to what God says here:
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Isaiah 5:20
Scripture also states:
Jesus replied, "Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. John 14:23
Does Jesus teach us to be involved in a day such as this? I have found nowhere in the Bible that justifies those who believe in Yeshua and follow him to celebrate this day.
An Occult Religious Day
So, what do those who are involved in the occult say about Halloween? Do they acknowledge that Halloween is a pagan day past and present? Consider the following:
Witch - Doreen Valiente: "Halloween is one of the four Great Sabbats of the witches that everyone has heard about. To witches, Halloween is a serious occasion, however merrily celebrated. It is the old Celtic Eve of Samhain. With the coming of Christianity, the Church tried to Christianize the old festival by making 1st November All Saints Day, or All Hallows as the old term was. Thus Samhain Eve became All Hallows Eve or Halloween. But attempts to discourage the pagan celebrations were so unavailing that the festival was eventually banned from the Church calendar. It was not until 1928 that the Church of England formally restored All Hallows to its calendar, on the assumption that the old pagan associations of Halloween were at last really dead and forgotten; a supposition that was certainly premature."
Witch - Margot Adler: "All the Great Festivals of Paganism, wherever they may be found, correspond in common with the Solstices, Equinoxes, and other natural annual cycles of life. Most of these remain with us today in more or less disguised form as the so-called Christian holidays of Christmas (Yule), Easter (Ostara), May Day (Beltane), Thanksgiving (Harvest Home), Halloween (Samhain) and even Groundhogs day (Oimelc)."
Witch - Sharon Graham: "Salem (Massachusetts) is a mecca, especially around Samhain. It is our holiday, our new year, and a lot of witches come here from all over the world"
Satanist - Anton Szandor LaVey (now deceased): "Two major holidays, HALLOWEEN and Walpurgisnacht are celebrated by the Church of Satan."
Gothic & Vampire Cults: Vampires, I know it sounds crazy and very Hollywood Sci-fi but there are people who claim they are vampires. As some of you know Shannon use to have a small publishing house when she worked with writers and illustrators back in the early 2000's. She came across several people who claimed to be vampires, not the blood drinking vampires you see on TV these people actually believe they are the REAL vampires. They draw off your energy this is what they claim they drink. I will not go into detail about all the different types that are in the world but trust me there are vampires or they think they are. Shannon said that Halloween was a very important day for vampires. Also, many in the Gothic movement assemble at graveyards on Halloween for their bizarre celebrations.
The Day of The Dead: I should note as, well that many Mexicans celebrate El Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead) on October 31. Family members who have died are believed to return to their grave sites.
Voodoo: The Voodoo Museum in New Orleans usually offers a special Halloween ritual in which people may see true voodoo rites.
Followers of Crowley: Major-General J.F.C. (Boney) Fuller was a devotee of the heroin-addicted, sex pervert, black magician and so-called High Priest of Satanism in Britain, Aleister Crowley (1875-1947). Crowley boasted of being "the wickedest man in the world" and openly despised Christ and the faith of his parents who were Plymouth Brethren. Fuller indicated that Samhain (Halloween) was an important ritual day to Crowley and his followers and it still is today.
1 Corinthians 10:21
You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons.
Simply put God has never placed doubt or shades of 1001 different colors to confuse you. He states what you are to do and not do.
