What is weighing heavy on my heart this month is Christians who celebrate Halloween.
This is disturbing to me.  We should shun this so called holiday with every fiber of our being.

It is sad to say, but Americans spend more money at Halloween than they do at Christmas.
 
Our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ gave His life so that we could be free from fear.

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
 
Fear is under the curse and we have been redeemed from the curse.
 
Halloween is based on fear. We can dress it up any way we want to, it is still about the things of the
 devil, who is the enemy of our souls.
The phrase "Trick or Treat" says, "If you don't give me candy, I will do something bad to you."

Halloween is also all about darkness. Colossians 1:13 says, We have been delivered from the power of darkness.
I Thessalonians 5:5 Ye are the children of light, and the children of the day, we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

I am not Jewish, so I don't celebrate Hanukkah.
I am not black, so I don't celebrate Kwanzaa.
I certainly don't worship the devil, so why would I want to celebrate Halloween?

Every year at this time animals, babies, children, and even adults are sacrificed to Satan.
October 31st is considered Satanist's high holy day.
If you think these things don't go on, then you have your head in the sand.
 
Wake up Christians!!!

Some people we know use to celebrate Halloween & put tombstones in their yard & other decorations. Their child kept having nightmares.  We went to pray with them & told them to remove those things
from their property.  As soon as they did, the child had no more nightmares.

Ephesians 4:27 Neither give place to the devil.
Don't do anything to give him a foothold in your life.
 
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
1pe 5:9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith
.
 
James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

We know some parents who would not let their children participate in Halloween.
You would have thought they were guilty of child abuse.  People just thought it was awful.
 
We should not worry about what people think. We are to please God & bring glory to His name.

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 6:16: And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye
are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be
their God, and they shall be my people.
2co 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
2co 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

We are not to think like the world or act like the world. We are in this world, but we are not of this world.

1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
1co 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which 
are God's.

1 Corinthians 10:21 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
.

Please think about what I have said.
