“A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.”
Halloween is a pagan holiday now routinely celebrated in the pagan churches.
In fact, the churches no longer even pretend to disapprove of Halloween.
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.
Halloween has undergone explosive growth in the World’s Greatest Christian Country Ever™.
Two other things which experience explosive growth are detailed in the Bible. God’s Word likens leaven to sin because both grow explosively.
Secular Christmas + Creativity = Halloween – Has the reader ever wondered WHY Halloween has been hyped into an entire season–just like Christmas? Has the reader ever wondered HOW Halloween has exploded into a season of darkness, witchcraft and evil?
The lazy-minded will answer (as always) “They do it for the money.”
Sure. But there are other reasons than making a buck.
Halloween is the new, secular, un-Christian holiday season.
The world has long de-coupled Christmas from Christianity, making the holiday about greed and gift-giving and eggnog and TV traditions and parties and…
But more recently, that same world has exalted Halloween–which has NO Christian baggage to explain away or change.
Revelation 11 declares two future prophets will preach the gospel and torment a pagan, satanic world.
“And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.”
The entire earth celebrates the death of these two men of God: giving each other gifts and making merry upon learning of their deaths.
It is just speculation, but maybe the above scenario will happen during Halloween?
The explosive growth of Halloween–like the similar growth of sin–is a reflection of the culture and society at large.
It only takes one occult, dark holiday to get the satanic ball rolling.
Does the reader believe Halloween to be just “good, clean fun“?
Does the reader belong to a church which celebrates Halloween with games, costumes and parties?
There is still yet a little time to change directions (repent) and call upon the mercy of an all-merciful God Almighty.
“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
“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
