JUST IN CASE THE READER WAS UNAWARE, not so many years ago, Halloween was observed for a day or two and then it was packed away with the outdoor grill for another year (until NEXT year’s Halloween rolled around).
Is this because of Halloween’s pagan roots?
And so, as this wicked world careens its way toward destruction, pagan holidays will increasingly be promoted.
Readers can already see one proof of this in the way the world has expanded Halloween (a top holiday for pagans, witches and satanists) into more than just a holiday. Halloween has become an entire SEASON to be enjoyed, celebrated and promoted by the world.
Paganism has always been alive in the holiday traditions.

Or, is there something MORE to the modern incessant focus on Halloween and all it entails: death, witches, zombies, black cats, wizards, ghosts?
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™.

Just EXACTLY what is behind the relentless promotion of all things Halloween?
Yes, a bit of it has to do with companies making money. After all, many stores NOW set up their Halloween displays and Halloween candy aisles shortly after kids return to school (September).
But, what’s the REAL reason Halloween has become the focus of America from September to November 1?
“Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.”
“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world”
Halloween celebrates the things of this world–and this includes all those who utilize familiar and evil spirits.
Therefore, it is NO great surprise that the prince of this world (Satan) has fueled end times celebrations of Halloween.
“Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.”
To ANY and ALL who can clearly see this circumstance, it should come as a relief that Halloween–as well as ALL worldly celebrations–will one day soon be nothing more than a memory.
And then, even the memory will fade away.
“For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”
So, IF the reader is one who CELEBRATES Halloween and all the surround the ever-growing season of Halloween:
Enjoy it while you can: NEITHER you nor the Halloween season will last forever!
DOES the reader think that the ever-growing Halloween season is just a sign of “the world wants to have a little fun“?
It is not YET too late: there is still a little time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“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.”
