Why Celebrate Halloween?

 

The Fact Is:

Celebrating Halloween with its mischievous destructive behavior gives glorification to Satan, (the Devil) himself. The origins of Halloween can be traced back to the religion of the druids in pre-Christian Ireland and Scotland. The druids were Celtic priests who practiced magic and soothsaying. Each year on October 31st (the end of the Celtic year) they would celebrate the festival of Samhain, which marked “the end of summer” and was also a “festival of the dead.” Samhain (one of the Celtic gods) was the lord of the dead. The druids and their followers went from castle to castle and from house to house playing trick or treat. The “treat” from the castle or house, demanded by the Druid, was a female to be used for human sacrifice. When you met their demand, they would leave a jack-o- lantern with a lighted candle made from human fat to protect those inside from being killed by demons that night. When someone less fortunate could not meet their demands, it was then time for the “trick”… a hexagram was drawn on the front door in blood. That same night Satan or one of his demons would kill someone in that castle or house through fear.

The Fact Is:

Halloween celebrations often induce violence, vandalism and destruction to both individuals and property? Drug abuse, drunkenness, and occultic practices run rampant. Disguising one’s self with a costume is deception and trickery, not fun and amusement. Many wear grotesque and ghoulish masks, depicting the dead or evil spirits that only impart fear. Decorating homes, schools, businesses and churches decorate with Jack-o'-Lantern's, witches, devils and other monsters only serves to glorify Satan (the Devil).

How any person can derive pleasure from such things makes no sense.

On October 31st, Satan’s supposed birthday, millions of people will innocently and ignorantly celebrate this so called holy day. Most people tend to think of themselves as “good people”.

YOU ARE DECEIVED!

If you are a Christian, scripture clearly forbids engaging in heathen practices. If you’re not a Christian, you need to be. Jesus Christ came into the world to save people from their sins. This invitation is extended to you but you must make the choice. One day you will stand before Jesus to give an account of the things that you did in your lifetime. Will you be able to explain to him why you took part in a celebration honoring the enemy of mankind, Satan? (the Devil).

I urge you now to examine your heart. Does your lifestyle glorify God or does it glorify Satan? The Bible is clear about what kind of people go to Heaven and what kind of people go to Hell. What kind of person are you? Regardless of what you think or how you were brought up, you will not go to Heaven if you do not know and have a personal relationship with Jesus. No church affiliation or denomination will get you in.

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man comes to the father (in Heaven) but by me.”

Invite Jesus into your life right now. Ask him to forgive you and to take away your sins. Right now just talk to God the way you would talk to your friend. Jesus will make Himself real to you.If you are truly sorry for, and willing to turn from your sins, Jesus will forgive you and give you a brand new life.

You won't be sorry if you invite Jesus in.
