You know there is one thing I don’t like and that is debating whether someone or some thing is right or wrong. I talked to a man some time ago and he made a statement about something he didn’t believe and I had to tell him when you make a statement that you don’t or you do believe something then you must be able to give some solid reason why you don’t or you do.
Now when it comes to spiritual things then we have only the Bible to base some concrete evidence to bear out. We are living in a very deceptive age. When some may, well that’s your choice to believe or not to believe. That in itself does not make it right or wrong. The Bible says we aught to obey God rather then men. Some people go to their clergy with all due respect but what id the clergy is wrong?
When things don’t line up with the word for any preacher to stand behind a pulpit and say there’s nothing wrong with the celebration of the 31st of October and teach children, so God help him I say. You may believe it or you don’t but I never heard anyone get behind a pulpit and make such a statement but for some reason I stopped writing on this issues only to learn that there was one in our area that did so.
Now I’m not going in detail about the history of Halloween simply because of the fact it’s all on the internet for anyone to see and I will declare it’s not of God! It’s of the flesh and the Devil! The Roman Catholic church celebrated mass for the dead saints on the 31st of October and we sometimes got a job to pray for the living saints and get results let alone praying for the dead.
Paul warned in 1st Thessalonians 5:22 to abstain from all appearance of evil and I’m sure that witches and such like it’s not an appearance of good.
Now the works of the flesh are recorded in Galatians Chapter 5 verse 19 to 21. When people celebrate praying for the dead which is doctrine of devils. Someone hath said, I read this in a suppose to be a spiritual magazine that we could redeem Halloween and try to make some good of it. What a lie!
You can’t redeem evil that’s about the same has trying to get the devil saved, besides, if there’s nothing wrong with it why would so called thing you would redeem if it’s good ? Why redeem it, I could go on but it makes me sick even to think that so called can try to justify something that’s not right.
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil that put darkness for light and light for darkness that put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.
There is one more thing I would like to say. In that same magazine that I referred to there was an article where some students were studying for future ministries. The teacher was wondering what he should give them for a summer assignment only to refer them to the movies, Narnia and the Lord of the Rings. Which was produced for no other purpose but to under-mind and captivate the minds of people by the unseen powers of the devil.
Paul said after he had been converted, he conferred not with flesh and blood! The commandment that he received came not by man neither by the will of man but by the Holy Ghost!
Hollywood’s productions should not have any place in the church or the believers. I believe it’s time to speak out! Jeremiah did it, other people did it. Christians out there speak out! Don’t be afraid of the face of clay!
There will be more to follow. Listen folks, if the devil deceived one third of the Angels and won them over don’t ever think you are any match for him. He’s out to deceive to under-mind whenever, wherever, however he can!
