“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
The season of Halloween has once more seized America.
Once upon a time, Halloween was no bigger holiday than, say President’s Day. A night or two to trick-or-treat, kids dressing up in any old thing that was handy, eating handout candy for a few days: that was about the extent of it.
“Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.”
—3 John 1:11
But somewhere over the last 50 years, Halloween took a disturbing turn down a dark, dreary and predictable road. Zombie walks, at least one ‘haunted house‘ in every town with a population over a couple thousand and a season of Halloween which now stretches through the entire month of October–and threatens to extend further.
Numerous ‘haunted houses’ are advertising they will be open until November 13 (or later) because Friday the 13th is only two weeks after Halloween. Some have already opened when October 1 rolls around.
That means the faux festivities run from September and continue into the middle of November.
Halloween’s season threatens Christmas as the most bloated season of the calendar.
However, neither compares to the practically year-long drone of pro sports, particularly the football season.
Darkness, death and fear are the hallmarks of the holiday. Witches, black cats and graves are the normal decorations. Many people spend more time planning their costumes for Halloween than they do their weddings.
At least the apostate churches reveal their true purpose: many open their buildings to the public for various celebrations. They see nothing wrong with celebrating the day with pagan and occult rituals usually reserved for their own congregations the rest of the year.
And to anyone who has misgivings, there’s no end to the number of people who laugh and claim “It’s all just good, clean fun!”
There is no more perfect holiday for America OR for the times in which we live.
Appropriately enough, violent crime (homicide, forcible rape, robbery and aggravated assault) spikes on Halloween.
What better day for a robbery? Everyone else is wearing a mask too.
The evil imitated by so many as “fun” is played out for real–and at times, the laughing Halloween partiers are the surprise victims.
Life imitates art imitates life.
But it’s all just part of the mystique of the annual Halloween madness.
As stated, Halloween is the perfect holiday for the times in which we live: the Bible declares that sorceries are one of the ‘Big Four’ sins of the end times.
What holiday more celebrates sorcery and darkness than October 31?
Every Halloween, hundreds of thousands of Americans pay to be scared by the ‘professionals’ at the ‘haunted houses.’
They could save their cash.
What’s coming in the end times will be a more effective scare than even the priciest haunted house.
And it won’t cost them a dime.
“Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.”
—1 Corinthians 10:21
Are you ready to trade the dismal darkness of Halloween for the light of Jesus Christ?
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
—2 Corinthians 4:3
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
