"Halloween in the church and the believers of Christ are doing it!?" I exclaim
As this month of October closes, the nation is preparing itself for the Fall festival known as Halloween. Its a festival where I see the lights go dark, especially amongst the "lights of the world," the Christians, and no one seems to notice it. Why is this so?
To many, Halloween is a very exciting time. Its a time where children and adults alike dress themselves in various costumes of all sorts. Some observers dress as monsters, fun characters, and others even put on the attire of their favorite athlete. The more adventurous ones gather their closest friends together to pay a visit to the local haunted houses, trails, and sites. They go for the thrill of being scared out of their wits while clinching to each other, even strangers, in fear. These individuals love the rush and excitement that Halloween brings, but who are these people exactly?
Many of them are us! Some of those who find themselves wrapped up in the velvet seduction of darkness are the ones who openly say, "We are followers of Jesus." We decorate his house (our local churches) with devils, ghosts, goblins, fairies, and fake spider-webs mixing the sacred with the profane, thus, bringing about confusion in the midst of the people of God. In the good intention of wanting to use this pagan holiday as a means to witness, we even have the audacity to fill God's yard full of pumpkins for his people to come pick up and carve evil faces in them. Once again this is us!!! The church of the Day! The Called out to live separately amongst the children of darkness! The salt and light of the world! The purified Bride of Christ!
In the book of John 1: 1-5, it said
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Now look at 2 Timothy 1:7-10,
Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus,
Friends, Jesus is life not death as Halloween promotes. If we are children of the light why do we promote darkness? Why do we give the victory to evil forces? Why do we paint our children's faces in the image of the same evil spirits that wants to kill us? Why!? Man/Woman of god? Everything about Halloween points to death.
Jesus is life! Now as believers of the true Father, which Is Jesus (the light of the world), let us come out of darkness, and stay in his light.
Hey! My name is Gus and I like to keep things simple! I love Truth, The Father, talking about and encouraging others in their walk with Jesus and desire to be source a of salt and light to you and those seeking a place of refuge in a world of darkness!
