Halloween is not accepted by Jesus Christ

It's that time of year again. It really bothered me to see a local church holding a "Hollow Him" even, that name gave me the creeps.  It's being used all over too now. Connecting Jesus to Halloween is absolutely wrong! What part of this is compromise do some do not get?

Halloween is pagan

I know how you feel - I live in UK - all the shops have tons of merchandise to dress up little kids as demons and ghouls, I'm always glad when it's over.

Agreed, a sad and wicked time of year. That Hallow Him poster with the stylized eye and new age logo. - Don

Yes we have the bad costumes here too. Hate to see that stuff.

It is a wicked time of year, I always want that day over. Yes the Hallow Him poster has the whole CBS look going to it, doesn't it Don?

Ezekiel Chapter 8.
Consider that the very stage here is the "temple of God" and the Lord clearly states that the observances of these Babylonian gods were abominations.

All of these pagan holidays that are being revered by the "church" today are the very Babylonian holidays that the Lord showed Ezekiel. These have come into the Church via the Roman Catholic Church and the elders of the protestant churches that teach the people to do that which the Lord clearly states are abominations.

Christmas was the birth of Tammuz. Easter was the "Queen of Heaven"(Ashtoreth) and Halloween was the death of Tammuz.

The ancient Babylonian worship is being "resurrected" by the Roman Catholic Church. She is, no doubt, the MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH! Revelation 17 & 18

Am I the only one that struggles between screaming and weeping over the blatant rebellion of the people of God and their departures from the Words of the Lord?

I have been called legalistic, pharisaical, fundamental, judgmental, self righteous, and other names that I will refrain from using here. Why? Because I speak the truth.

I even had a pastor try telling me that the Lord borrowed the ideas like the temple, the priests, sacrifices, singers, etc...from the pagan gods, and He transformed them or "redeemed" them for good; and that we should likewise redeem the pagan feasts for Him.

What kind of "anointing" are these corporations dealing with, that they are led to honor Babylon?

The abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet is something that I have prayed much about, because I was taught that there had to be a third temple built. The Word clearly states that WE are the temple of God and the "church" (1 Cor 3:16 & 17, 1 Cor 6:19, Ephesians 2 :

For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; Ps 118:22 Matt 21:42 Mark 12:10 Luke 20:17 Acts 4:11 1 Pet 2:7
In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

I think that we are on the very brink of the greatest tribulation the world has ever seen since the beginning of creation. I wish I knew "when" so I could get a head start, but it seems to be right after Jerusalem is surrounded by armies. I think that there is going to be some sort of spiritual indwelling of the spirit of the antichrist, rather than a physical, charismatic world leader taking dominion of the United Nations. It could be both, for all I know, but I am on high alert and this post about Halloween really does connect a few dots.

If the Christians wanted to celebrate festivities, why not the feasts of the Lord? Why the Babylonian feasts?

I'm not a robot (anymore;)

It is all about commercialism, selling candy and costumes. Children aren't the only one - many adults dress up and have parties.

If one looks up how white witches celebrate the day it should make Christians flee away from the day and instead make it a matter of prayer for protection on the little ones.

Suzanne Rowland said...

Yes, I do not like the celebration for this holiday. It is everywhere you look. It's very tiring to explain to your 5 year old why we don't go trick or treating like his friends and cousins because that's a way of celebrating the holiday. We did take him to a church call festival and was disappointed. One game for the little ones was a ring toss. The child gets to toss a ring around a witches hat! Instead of having fall decorations (pumpkins, hay, corn or maize etc), the "fall festival" looked more like a Halloween festival! Fall is my favorite time of year and we have attended true fall festivals in the past but sadly they are hard to find today. Many churches today are having trick your trunks for the kids!! It's also hard to find cartoons that don't have witches or magic in them.

I know what you mean.

This is a difficult time of year as a family with young children. The decorations in our neighborhood are everywhere. My three year old has a lot of questions and it's hard to explain it so he can understand while also telling him the truth. I have been told repeatedly by family members and other "Christians" that we're depriving our son of a decent childhood. I always here the "It's just kids dressing up and getting candy." Today, we're trying to focus on the Lord and praying for the hearts and eyes of the lost to be opened and see this celebration for what it truly is.

Except for the fact that, for a Christian, halloween is impotent. Satan holds no power over us.

Don't be like the Jehovah's Witnesses who won't even accept a birthday card. (They will always eat the birthday cake though.)

The world considers the born again Christian "odd" for not celebrating the pagan's holy day, especially the pew sitting church goers who do not understand the Word of God. Their lives are rooted in man's traditions, not rightfully understanding that we are free from celebrating any feasts or holy days, Jesus fulfilled ALL of it, which most do not understand for they still need the carnal flesh to be tickled.

When Jesus was crucified on that tree for our sins, and resurrected, He fulfilled every jot and tittle of the Word of God, so we are not under any legal fulfillment of feasts, festivals, celebrations, ie., traditions of man of any kind.

And if Roman Catholicism adopted all of these pagan holidays, calling them Christian holy days, well then, most of the 501c. 3 churches we see in this day and age, are literal daughters of the mother harlot. Pagans also celebrated harvest festivals with maize, garden produce, bonfires, church participating in 'harvest festivals' are celebrating pagan traditions as well. My former 501c. 3 celebrated both.

Great insight, Scott W. Tammuz is so revered that the Hebrew calendar just happens to have an entire month named after it. Then consider Exekiel 8 is all about God exposing the carnal Jews for their idol worshiping and “weeping for Tammuz” (v14). Fast forward to Jeremiah 7 where God condemns the Jews again, “Seest thou not what they do in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem? …to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.” (v17-18) Yeah, those Catholics are terrible.

Comparing Christians who do not celebrate Halloween, an occult holiday, to JWs who do not celebrate birthdays is just plain IGNORANT!

Of course evil does not have a hold on us, but God tells us we are not to take part in evil activities AND TO AVOID THEM. A birthday celebration is NOT an evil activity!

Sue Botchie said...

Dear BB and Friends, Chick pubs has a good idea - pass out tracts with decent candy. Someone I know puts a Scripture in a baggie with a good handful of decent candy.

Anonymous said...

Anon at 3:30 pm. We are not to use the grace of God as a means to sin. If you know it's wrong, and do it anyway. That is sin. While we all sin the "sins of the flesh", participating in a pagan witchcraft holiday shouldn't be too hard to stay away from. Just my opinion of coarse.....James

Grammy G said...

Anyone who is a Christian (not just in name, but truly) cannot even consider the things of Halloween. We are to FLEE the works of darkness, not entertain them slightly. This is a high holy day for many occult groups and there is most definately spiritual attachment to evil when you participate at all. Many churches offer alternatives and shouldn't do so if they can't make it distinguishably different. Don't dance with the Devil!!!

About giving out tracts on Halloween: I have been told that the tracts get tossed out on the street or right into the garbage. Especially Chick tracts that are really "in your face" types. I do not believe God will honor a Christian's participation in that wicked holiday. It gives the impression of approval and smacks of compromise. I have seen tracts that show a cross on a jack-o-lantern. That insults our Lord and gives the impression that Christianity and paganism are compatible.

Sue's advice is good to apply to giving out tracts in restaurants. Don't leave one for the waitress unless you leave a generous tip. Sadly, many Christians leave a paltry tip and a tract which is a bad witness. And leave a tract that lifts up and shows the Love of Christ and does not smell of fire and brimstone.

To: "Yeah, those Catholics are terrible." Yes, the Catholics and anyone who promotes Halloween are terrible because they have the example of the Jews past conduct and still practice the same worship. They have no fear of GOD before their eyes. The Catholics have also added Mary's name above the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and the name of GOD also.

The Catholics entire system is equally an abomination because they have twisted the priesthood that GOD established. The priesthood was for the Jews and not the Gentiles. Catholics are not born again. So they cannot be priest at all. Only one family of the Levites will be permitted to approach unto GOD in the millennium and forever and that is the family of Zadok. So, yes those "catholics" are terrible!

Ezekiel 44:15 - But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the charge of my sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from me, they shall come near to me to minister unto me, and they shall stand before me to offer unto me the fat and the blood, saith the Lord GOD:

Ezekiel 48:11 - It shall be for the priests that are sanctified of the sons of Zadok; which have kept my charge, which went not astray when the children of Israel went astray, as the Levites went astray.

To the people still in ignorance, birthdays are actually NOT for born again Christians. Why? Because Scripture states that the day of one’s death is better than one’s birth (Ecc. 7:1). Nowhere in the Bible are we told to keep birthdays. Actually, the examples in the Bible indicate that we should not keep birthdays (Gen. 40:20; Job 1:4; Mat. 14:6; Mk. 6:21). The Satanic bible lists one’s birthday as the day we become a god. Though we can be members of the God Family, we will never be God like God is God. Keeping birthdays is another one of Satan’s lies.

Another practice associated with some cultures for birthdays is having a Piñata. This is also of pagan origin and we should have nothing to do with this practice. Originally, the Piñata was made in a figure of a mermaid, although it is not always a mermaid now. Sometimes, it is a six-pointed star. This star of the god is derived from the same source as the mermaid. These are pagan gods.

The mermaid was beaten with sticks to break the Piñata or parcel of seeds, which she had, in order that the seeds would fall to the Earth and so reproduce. That is why the Piñata has sweets/lollies in them representing the seeds.

In ancient times, they placed humans in skins and beat them. Often the rites involved human sacrifice.

Dear Bible Believer,

When I became a born again Christian, God, the Holy Spirit, began to illuminate the Scriptures for me, His child. As my belief and faith grew stronger in His knowledge, our Halloween practices became a festival of our past lives without Christ. We quit dressing our children up, quit going to the neighbors begging for candy, and quit participating in our church's 'all saints day, harvest festival, costume parties.'

We quit all of it, much to our family's disgust, our neighbor's condescending comments, and our church's "what' wrong with you." Walking away from Halloween did not hurt our children in the long run; it didn't turn us away from Jesus with all of the minor persecution from pew sitters, and it didn't destroy our faith in Christ. No. None of that happened thanks to our Father Who art in Heaven, Who loves and protects us even when those around us do not understand.

And you will never hear a pastor, the so called office of the pastor (which does not exist in the original translation of the Holy Scriptures), or church leadership, give a sermon or teach truth in the church system, concerning the origins and truths surrounding this dark holiday created by man. So called "All Saint's Day" isn't in our Bibles as well, but another creation of man, to worship man and it has nothing to do with our Great Teacher, Jesus Christ.

We had an overweight leader within our church, go around begging for money to buy tons of candy for the children's costume party every year. We said 'no thanks' for we didn't consider this a ministry in any way, shape or form, plus the fact that the leadership invited "magicians and illusionists" for their half time entertainment for the children who didn't know better. And this my friends, is a conservative "we know Jesus better than the other denominations" type and shadow of a church.

Guess those who profess to be called out ones, really aren't so called out as one would observe.

And I didn't give any candy to the last trick or treaters that came to our home, I told them we don't honor Halloween. They never came back, and I didn't feel the least bit guilty, nor should I.

Really anon, you are going to condemn Christians for celebrating birthdays? Are you SDA or JW? It is celebration of LIFE! God-given LIFE! Christians do not believe in the Satanic "bible". The statement you quote is a lie. Christians do NOT believe that one becomes a god on their birthday. It is an innocent celebration!

Before Halloween I tuned in to the Christian radio station I used to listen to. It's still programmed on my radio and every time I hit that button it seems I hear the most outlandish things from these Christian radio hosts.

The radio host (who also has the members of the Whosoevers on his show to promote) was saying how Halloween used to be so nice and fun. Kids in cute costumes, getting candy in the neighborhood - fun for all. But now the violence and demonic costumes - has this made Halloween a bad thing now? He senses a terrible turn for Halloween... and had callers calling in with their opinion. Two times he mentioned that Anton LaVey says in the Satanic Bible that Halloween is a very important high Satanic holiday. I was actually surprised he said that. But it didn't matter, because it didn't matter to anyone! Not even to him. He made the statement and that was it. He went on to promote Halloween, but was just now concerned of it's evil overtones.

Another interesting comment he made as he promoted Donald Trump - was he said, "All of you people who cannot vote for the lesser evil - well, aren't we all evil?"

And I was like...what? When you are born again you turn from evil.

And then I thought, well with that attitude no wonder he promotes the Whosoevers on his show.

So, we're all evil so vote for the lesser evil. That's Christianity today.


Bible Believer said...

I think all trick or treating should be avoided. I know some mean well passing out tracts and candy but it gives too much of an appearance of evil having anything to do with Halloween.

Thanks for the Podesta email Don. I have some weird stuff to post on today. Pray for me in doing this. The exposure of the Luciferians is happening now on the "alt-right" and parts of the 'right wing" mainstream. What worries me is they believe in Trump who I believe is just as Luciferian. Hillary Clinton IS Satanic, but be careful of what the other hand is doing. Are they rubbing their crimes in our faces and their satanic involvements knowing most of America will remain blind and uncaring to the evil especially if she becomes president? I'm not sure.

This may sound like a weird suggestion but go to Insearchofblackassasins and do a search for Trump on there. That website has false teachings connected to it, so I give this suggestion with major caution, and is "deep conspiracy" [he is right about the satanic agendas against black people] but read some of what he has written on "Drumpf" who is just as in it as the rest]

I'm not voting for anyone for president, I plan to go vote on some local/regional stuff. This election has gotten beyond the pale. It sickens me. Pray for peace on November 9. We are in trouble with either one of them.

I agree, I have never heard of any pastor warn about Halloween. I have a past pastor on my Facebook from my old IFB and he was breaking out the pumpkins to put faces on them with his kids, that elicted a giant sigh from me. I openly have decried Halloween on my Facebook for YEARS. None of the IFB people ever warn about it.

With birthdays, I don't get legalistic about that one. It's more of a time counting to some people to figure out how old they are. There is a narcissistic/sinful quality to overdoing the whole thing of course. Maybe I don't make as big of a deal about birthdays as most, I figure out hmm, I'm another year older and we might go out to eat if there is money to do so. Blowing out the candles and "making a wish" is something Christians should avoid. That is NOT biblical.

I believe you about Pinatas and always thought there was some kind of ritual in "beating" some figure strung up in a tree.

It sickens me too the promotion of Halloween and All Saints Day on Christian websites and radio stations, that one does not surprise me and it has worsened through the years.

Amen Bible Believer. Thank-you for expressing your belief concerning the elections. I am struggling to vote for a presidential candidate and feel so forced by the religious/church folks around me to go and vote for Trump. There is a great spiritual battle going on in my soul and I too, also believe Trump is a luciferian. So it is a difficult time and will need to surrender to more prayer.

May our LORD bless you BB.

Bible Believer said...

Hi anonymous, check out today's article when you get a chance. Yes I believe Trump is a luciferian too. The exposures have me worried and I believe they are being used. I have dealt with a great spiritual battle too and too much fear and worry about what is to come of all this. Yes we need to pray more. Thanks for the verses Scott, yes that one applies, things have grown so disgusting, that even writing an article here, about their evil doings takes some careful writing, because things have gotten that sickening and wicked.
