Halloween and The Bounty of God’s Harvest

Shopping is something I enjoy, I meet people from all walks of life and we often chat and have a laugh, sometimes I even evangelize in a non threatening way but lately I have been saddened by all the Halloween propaganda in a lot of the Stores.Wd

In Aussie Land Halloween has only been celebrated for a short time compared to America and other places where it has been so for many years. Most of those who are Elderly here do not remember it ever being part of our culture when they were young, sad that we now have to endure it.

Halloween ....

SmTo be face to face with reminders of Demons, Devils, ghosts, Witches, Vampires, some even had dripping jelly blood etc all this is very unsettling for me, when I know how much God hates evil of all types and warns against these type of things but some people follow their cultures traditions and believe if others are doing it’s OK and sadly I was the same once.WdWhat we focus on plants seeds for good and evil in our soul and we reap what we sow, this is why God tells us to focus or think about what is good. Yes we accept warnings with thankfulness about those things that are dangerous and evil and also warn others and we don’t allow evil to be part of our lives or our focus.

SmPhilippians 4: 8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Below is two links that  if they do not  convict you of  the  dangers of Halloween and  of it’s evil, I hope they will cause you to think again  about what it promotes and it’s not just Pumpkins.

Harvest 21

We don’t celebrate The Bounty of God’s Harvest in Australia as others do, I think it’s wonderful  they have this remembrance, we need to be always thankful to God. I read that  it is for all the Season and  that at first most Churches sought to offer an alternative to Halloween not to compete with it but inadvertently celebrated their thankfulness to God on the same night as Halloween, October 31st, there by giving the impression they were supporting it, not only to other Christians but to those who don’t believe in our God.

SmToday in some Churches when their celebrating The Bounty of God’s Harvest the costumes and memorabilia are the same as used for Halloween and they are indeed evil reminders of ungodly Pagan worship, which is deep darkness reflected in evil.

But also  some Churches it seems are more interested in promoting Pagan rituals then God’s blessings, maybe hoping their numbers will increase but God makes it very clear we cannot be friends with the world and Him too, to join together in Holy Communion and also celebrate  Pagan practices, (1Corinthians10:21 ) is not only harmful but is disobedient.

Candy, like all God’s gifts can be used for good or evil,  reward or pleasure. God is a God of balance, He created the Sugar cane and Honey but warns too much will make us sick, candies, cakes etc are not the forbidden fruit, disobedience is, it’ the fruit of the evil flesh and when eaten brings spiritual death.

Sm

Let’s also not overlook the Truth that just like Christmas and Easter, this time of year was no doubt chosen by Satan to devalue God’s Bounty Time and His greater blessing in His sacrificial Love shown by the wonderful gift of His Son Jesus Christ. Satan no doubt used  these times of year to promote and celebrate his evil works instead.

Halloween  01

 

Instead of  Trick or Treat,  wouldn’t it be nice if Children with supervision at any time of the year, gave a gift of Love instead of asking for something with the threat of punishment if not given a treat, I have heard of some very unpleasant tricks.

Sm

What is very much needed  at this time of unrest as we draw nearer to Jesus’ return, is for all Churches to show their rejection of Halloween by celebrating God’s Blessing in His Bounty of The Harvest at another time of the Season. So if those in Leadership in our Churches are indeed genuine in wanting to show Godliness in their motivation to celebrate this time of year, they will seek to do this, presenting to unbelievers a clear distinction between Halloween and Thankfulness to our God.

SmIt’s interesting that we were not sent any Posts about Halloween,  perhaps they feel I will be upset  or is it that I might comment, yes Truth will hurt if we are doing the wrong thing and we will feel guilty, but some will ignore correction, others  justify or blame others, but  if it  causes people who profess to be Christian to stop promoting what God calls evil,  then it’s beneficial and needed.

  4. This is so true, I agree with Anne, so many people have been deceived and are still in bondage, most people only celebrate Halloween because others are doing it, we as Christians and children of light need to reach out to them. Amen and God bless

    • Thank you for visiting Priscilla and what you shared is very True and if we care for them we will warn them. I’m the only Christian in my Neighborhood although I don’t know everyone yet , still praying though. I have been abused and even attacked verbally and physically because of standing up for God’s Truth over the years and also with Halloween, but I know they were motivated by Satan and I have forgiven them. Why some people believe as Christians we will always be accepted when Jesus tells us we wont be, is surprising, when we stand up for God’s Truth the opposite is True.

      When the Children come for their trick a treat, I ask them to come back the next day for their treats, when they ask why, I say my Friend Jesus doesn’t like witches, demons, vampires etc He wants me to think about nice things.

      Where I lived before some of the Children came back and asked me to teach them about Jesus, so Funday School started which is what they called it and it continued for 2 years until I moved to where I live now. Some of the children here also asked me to teach them about Jesus after seeing one of my Power Points and I did for over two years but when Halloween came and I was home that year not in Sydney because I wouldn’t give them sweets till the next day, their Mothers stopped them coming to Funday School, they said what I talked about was just rubbish but the children still come and visit me and one Mother is talking to me again but I would value your prayers.

      I’m very sure that Halloween is not about fun!

      Thanks again Priscilla – Christian Love – Anne

  5. As for candies, I don’t let my son eat them all. I ask him to have about 5-8 pieces, the rest we donate.

  6. I grew up celebrating All Soul’s Day and all Saint’s Day. Praying and honoring dead families, visiting relatives and friends. Then I went to America and realized Halloween seems bigger than Christmas. Crazy! I do bring my 8 year old for trick or treating for pure fun but I had remind him what Oct. 31st and Nov.1 is based on our Catholic faith. As Christians, we need to be aware if certain practices do take us away from the light and not to worship what’s evil.

    • Hi dear Island Traveler, I too use to celebrate Halloween, everyone else was doing it so why not but I found it harmful because of what it lead too, thinking witches, demons , devils are all OK leads to acceptance of the dark things in life.

      Good news, I have nearly finished your Power point and I found a Post of yours to link it to where you are talking about finding Love, although I did like your son’s Birthday party too but perhaps you have a special Post that you would like it linked too.

    With regards to Halloween or any other imported celebrations , like Ramadan , Chinese New Year, we don’t need them here. Anything that takes away the importance of God as the center of everything is wrong . He is the giver of all bounty and goodness and should be recognized for that.

    Leave all Idolatry where it comes from , we don’t need it or want it.

    Thanks Anne

    • Yes I agree 100% Love but wouldn’t it be good to be able to reach them with this Truth, yes as you said God is the one we are to thank. I know your passionate against all Pagan idolatry and that is good but we remember too, they are people of worth who are deceived, they need our help, the Truth will set them free from the bondage of their sinful lives.

      Love you always dear – Anne
