Halloween a practice of darkness

This is a repost that bears repeating!

This is a former post that bears repeatingWhen we think of halloween what comes to mind is goblins,ghost’s,haunted houses,things spooky,witches and spirit’s. Many say it is just a fun time to dress up in costumes and a candy giving occasion BUT IS IT?………………..

When we compare what this time represents and what the word of God says it is pretty much black and white how scripture is light and hope for all of us while this holiday is of darkness and demon’s. As christians we are the children of light and do not take company with the darkness which before we had the knowledge of Christ were a part of (Ephesians 5:8-11) For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)  Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

At this time of year the talk of witches and demons are put in a light of something fun and harmless. Scripture does not take this lightly! At this time demons are spoken of as though they are fictional and fun,yet Jesus took them very serious as He casted them out of the people many times! (Mark 5:1-20).

Witches,witchcraft and even magic are not practices God is alright with and the following links explain what scripture teaches about it.

 AS CHRISTIANS REMEMBER Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:5-9).

  1. I would add Deuteronomy 18 v 9-14
    9 When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.

    10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.

    11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

    12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

    13 Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God.

    14 For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
