The Truth About Halloween...
A friend shared this with me and I thought it would be appropriate to share it on the blog because so many times people do things without realising the consequences of what they are doing. So if you're into Halloween and all that jazz have a read and see what this person has to say....
Halloween: "Trick or Treat" or Satan's Trick
On 31 October people from all over the world will once again celebrate
Halloween with symbols and/or costumes of witches, monsters, pumpkin
ghosts, evil ghosts, vampires etc..
Shops are decorated with some of these themes obviously to make a
sale; Nursery schools are all working hard at painting masks for this
Youngsters are dressing up and wearing masks while partying away,
having a great time, without realising what they are really involving
themselves in on this day.
What is Halloween and where does it come from?
We find the origin of this feast emanating from the Celtic religion of
Ireland, Northern Europe and England, where the Celtic priests or
Druids sacrificed to their god "Shamhain". He was the "Angel of Death"
and head of the evil spirits.
We pray that the following shocking information about Halloween will
open your eyes as to the truth about this satanic feast.
The Druids worshiped Satan. On the night of 31 October all would dress
in costumes for this: the biggest feast for Satan.
It was believed that the spirits of the dead rose to visit their
families or relatives, hence the wearing of costumes from the
The participants in the feast danced and moved from house to house to
claim a sacrifice for "Shamhain". They asked at every door "Trick or
Treat" (As is the practice to this day).
Animals and humans as sacrifice were seen as "Treat". A hollowed out
pumpkin was left to protect the occupants of that house from the evil
In cases where a claim was not met, it was then time for the Druids
A Hexagram was drawn by the druid on the door of that house for the
curses to come upon the inhabitants of that house.
Teachers, parents, youngsters and children in this day and age do not
realize what the implications are of them participating and going door
to door asking for "Trick or Treat" on the evening of Halloween.
They receive sweets nuts and fruit as a reward and in doing so they do
not realize that they are taking part in an age old Druid ritual. I
shiver to think of the spiritual implications on the children opening
themselves to these evil spirits by participating in this satanic
Well known Author John MacArthur ask the question "How is it possible
that Christian kids dress up as demons, witches and ghosts, don't they
see anything wrong with that? Christian parents cannot possibly see
this as only fun and fantasy as it stems from age old rituals of the
Occultists and Satanists regard this day, even in our day and age, as
their most sacred day.
Texe Mars, a Christian writer says: "On this unholy night witches come
together to drink, dance, speak out curses, call up familiar spirits
and to sacrifice. They sacrifice animals and humans in the most
The Wiccan witches' organization says: "Yes, most followers of pagan
religions celebrate the day of shamhain as the day on which their
deceased friends come to visit and spirits and goddesses appear."
The danger of Halloween
Firstly: it is occultic, many children's first encounter of "Horror"
movies and occultic powers are at Halloween parties. They dress as
beasts out of the under world and portray themselves as witches,
spirits and demons.
Secondly: Halloween emphasize violence. A Teacher asked grade 4
students what they wanted to portray this Halloween. 80% of them
replied they wanted to be Dracula and kill someone.
Dracula was a real person and ruled from 1431 to 1476. He gruesomely
murdered 100 000 people. He was a demon possessed mad man. Is it good
for children to want to dress up like him?
Thirdly: Participating in Halloween can bring about heavy bindings on
the lives of people.
This is Satan's territory; we should not be involved with witches and
Deuteronomy 18:9-14 says: "When you come into the land which the LORD
your God is giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominations
of those nations. 10 "There shall not be found among you anyone who
makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who
practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or
a sorcerer, 11 "or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a
spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 "For all who do these
things are an abomination to the LORD, and because of these
abominations the LORD your God drives them out from before you. 13
"You shall be blameless before the LORD your God. 14 "For these
nations which you will dispossess listened to soothsayers and
diviners; but as for you, the LORD your God has not appointed such for
Many people ignorantly think that if they do not believe in such
things like witches etc.., that there will be no effect or harm coming
The spiritual realm (world) is very real and very dangerous.
Some Halloween symbols
Masks: The wearing of a mask not only covers ones true identity but
the wearer becomes one with the creature they represent.
Pumpkin ghosts: It represented a skull that kept away dangerous evil
spirits. It was furthermore a sign that the inhabitants of that house
recognised and acknowledged the authority of the druids and their
Costumes: It is believed that on the night of 31 October Satan
releases all the evil spirits to attack humans.
The best way not to be attacked was to appear like one of them.
It seems to me that that these spirits had to be very unintelligent to
be coned like that, or....
Was it that the humans was so blinded and fell right into Satan's trap?
Only the Lord can open your spiritual eyes of understanding to see the
danger of this satanic feast.
Acts 26:18 says: "to open their eyes, in order to turn them from
darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may
receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are
sanctified by faith in Me.' "
Step 1: Repent and turn from your wicked ways and the occult, so
that you can turn back to God's ways.
Step 2: God's forgiveness is available for you as stated in Acts
26:18 after repentance and turning away from the wickedness.
Step 3: The same verse goes on to say that forgiveness through faith
in Jesus Christ has already been obtained for you by the blood
atonement at Calvary.
Step 4: Accept Jesus as your personal Savior and Redeemer, for it is
only through Him that the strongest cords of binding can be broken in
your life and set you free.
He wants to come into your life, if you are willing to open up for Him.
Rev 3:20 "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My
voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and
he with Me.
Step 5: Acts 26:18 says that God gives you an inheritance among
those who are sanctified by faith in Him. This means that He will give
you a new life, and from now on that you will devote your life to Him.
Start studying scripture and begin a solid prayer life.
