Well...here we go! Once more, it behooves me to post something that many will not want to hear, but nevertheless I must. I shared it last year, and will continue to share this truth, regardless of how unpopular it is to "luke-warm Christianity".
It won't be popular, but then again, truth rarely is! We cannot bow to the norms of culture, just because it is popular. Some things, are not able to be redeemed! Necromancy, witchcraft, and celebration of occultic things are some of them.
Regardless of how popular it may become to succumb to the "fun" that culture presents, or how unpopular it may be to stand against it, as Martin Luther once declared ~ "Here I stand, I can do nothing else."
I will continue to stand against such blatant evil, and will not compromise what I now know to be true...Halloween is evil, to it's core! The mistaken claim that it is a "holiday" that came out of Christianity, is a lie. It has some link to a celebration of the dead that was (and is) celebrated in Catholicism, but it is of pagan origins, as many things in the Catholic church were and are. There are many things that the Catholic Church celebrated and did, that was and should be, soundly rejected by protestant Christianity, including purgatory and other such beliefs about the dead. As much as I love many Catholic people, sadly there is much superstition and false beliefs within their doctrines and beliefs that are downright wrong, and even rooted in pagan beliefs.
No, I am not being religious or operating in a religious spirit. It is called righteousness and holiness...2 terms that are not taught much nowadays. We must not continue this kind of compromise, as it is weakening the gospel message we carry!
Halloween has many more ties to Samhain (pronounced "sow-in") than anything else, which is what makes it so very evil. I will be sharing more about this in the next few days. Samhain was and is, an ultra pagan celebration, celebrated by witches and those in the occult for centuries. Simply put...a Christian should not be celebrating something so blatenly evil. It celebrates death, evil, gore, fear, and demons...and it has gotten worse and worse by the year. Why? Because instead of standing against it, many "Christians" have decided to join in the "fun". What one generation tolerates, another generation celebrates...and that is how we have gotten to this place!
Many think there is nothing wrong with it, as long as they dress up as something cute and not evil. I used to feel the same, but the Holy Spirit revealed that He feels differently about it, so I adjusted my way of thinking and realized that much of what we think of as innocent "fun", is actually playing with fire, because of what the day represents. If people only knew the evil that the occult practices on this day, the witchcraft, the sacrifices...they would want to have nothing to do with it. I honestly question supposedly "mature" Christians and "leaders" in the body who have no problem celebrating this day...and even some who claim that they have "reconstituted it" as something fun and good. As I said before, some things can not be reconstituted, as they are blatantly evil to their core! It is astonishing to me how so many "Christians", and even leaders continue to fight for their right to celebrate a pagan day that is so rooted in all that God opposes!
Have you noticed the darkness has gotten more blatant lately...witches talking about cursing people, zombies, vampires, everything dark being celebrated and liked, even by Christians? This is because the Church itself has become lukewarm. They have become like the world, instead of being set apart as a holy people unto their God.
▶It's time the church stop doing things just because it's popular in culture, but ask the Lord how He feels about it, and ask Him to show them if it's not pleasing to Him.
▶It's time God's true Bride become holy again, and live as a holy people, set apart unto their God!
▶ It's time for another REFORMATION!!!⏫🙌

Thankful to our friend, John Burton, for the graphic, and for standing strong against this celebration of evil. 👍
