Jesus Followers must not Celebrate Holloween. Because it glorifies the devil. And God has nothing to do with it.
1.God is a God of life, but Halloween focuses on death. Should I celebrate a holiday where people decorate their front yards with tombstones? Creeps and weird..
2.The Scriptures tell us to put away deeds of darkness (Rom.13:12) and that light has nothing in common with darkness (2 Cor. 6:14). Is celebrating a dark holiday something a child of the light should be doing?
3.I had been delivered from fear and panic attacks and knew that fear comes from the enemy. Should I participate in a holiday that has fear as its very foundation? Where it creates fear and panic and death while you walk? Worst than a dead person. Even the dead don’t do that.
As in the light, God said be strong and courageous.
Have not I commanded you? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be you dismayed: for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go
Is there any love in screaming death and bloody thing to people?
2 Timothy 1:7
For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
4..Witchcraft is clearly detestable to the Lord (Deut 18:10-13). Shouldn’t something that glorifies witchcraft (just take a walk through the Halloween store) be detestable to me as well?”
5.Halloween is a sacred, high holiday for Wiccans (the official religion of witchcraft). Is this a holiday Christians should celebrate alongside Wiccans?
3 John 1:11
Beloved, do not imitate evil but imitate good. Whoever does good is from God; whoever does evil has not seen God.
1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
6.Is it cute when we dress our kids like the devil (or witches, ghouls, scary characters, etc.)? Isn’t it, well, demonic?
Is this the way you want to teach your kids? To become worshippers of the devil? Well. Isn’t it cute?
While the bible says:
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
7.What if my child dresses in a wholesome fireman costume? Romans 16:19 says that we need to be wise to what is good and innocent of evil. If I let him participate in Halloween, even while dressed as a fireman, aren’t I sending him a mixed message by allowing him to participate in a celebration of evil?
2 Corinthians 11:14
And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
8.The Lord said in 2 Cor. 6:17, “Come out from them and be separate … Touch no unclean thing …” Doesn’t God want His children to be set apart from the world and from sin and evil? Aren’t we supposed to be peculiar people?
9.My extended family thinks it’s ridiculous that we not allow our son to dress up for Halloween. Should their opinions matter to me more than God’s? Shouldn’t pleasing God be my utmost concern?
1 John 3:10
By this the children of God are distinguished from the children of Satan: No one who does not do righteousness, neither loves his brother, is from God.
2 Corinthians 4:4
In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
10.If there is even a question in my heart and mind that it might be wrong, shouldn’t that be my first clue? Why would I continue to do so with even a lingering thought that it is wrong?
So, I have decided a long time ago that I will not give a place or opportunity to the devil to take me or any of my kids or any of my family.
27 and do not give the devil a foothold
11.Does Halloween bring glory to God? No! It glorifies the devil! Nuff said.
This world is filled with sensuality.
The sense of what they see, hear and talk and they walk the worldly ways.
Telling their mind it’s human.
17 So I tell you this, and insist on it in the Lord, that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their thinking. 18 They are darkened in their understanding and separated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them due to the hardening of their hearts. 19 Having lost all sensitivity, they have given themselves over to sensuality so as to indulge in every kind of impurity, and they are full of greed.
So..are ypu making yourself dead as alive.? Making rituals of holloween blood to glorify the enemy of God.? Then ypu are in serious situation. You are becoming the enemy yourself.
Dont offer your kids to death and darkness but give them to life and light.
