Shalum mishpacha! With Helloween around the corner no awaken Ahk/Achut should have their children participating in this satanic festival.
Halloween originated among the ancient Celts of Europe and was called the festival of 👉
Samhain or All Hallowtide👈. It was a feast of the dead and started the evening of 31 Oct
signaling the end of harvest and the beginning of winter. 1 Nov was All Soul's Day. It began on
31 Oct because in ancient times days were [reckoned] from evening to evening, rather than midnight-to-midnight. This also signaled the beginning of the New Year for the Celts. During the
turning of the year, the "veil between the worlds" is believed to be at it thinnest and the living could communicate with the dead in their dwelling place. It is a time when deceased ancestors and other "friendly" spirits are invited to join in “festivals” and be reunited with loved ones. The celebration of the dead honored the “god” of the dead on this particular night. It was also a time when faeries were active.
What's wrong with Halloween?
It does not have even one single redeeming virtue. It is custom born out of pagan superstition. It
is a demon-inspired, devil-glorifying, occult festival. It is an evening unto evil, death, and
divination. The Scriptures tells us to "Abstain from all appearance of evil." [1Thess 5:22]
Halloween is celebrated on the 31st of Oct (see dates below of satanic high days during oct-
nov). It is the night when most Paganists honor the spirits of the dead, offer human
sacrifices and make pacts and covenants with demonic forces.
👉Trick or Treat👈People would imitate the faeries and go from house to house begging for treats since the belief is that spirits had to be appeased by giving them a type of worship and offering (food or milk). Failure to provide the treats would result in practical jokes being visited on the owner of the house such as: blocking the chimney, leading off cattle, throwing cabbages, etc.
Another way to fool or scare away the evil spirits was to dress up to look like them. It was believed the spirits would then bring no harm to them. 🔹🔹🔹
"The way back is not as hard as it seems to you now. Satan wants you to think that it is impossible. That is not true." - Richard G. Scott
Sometimes in our culture we talk a lot about how bad sin is and how hard it is to repent as a way to sort of scare people away from sinning. In my experience, that is counterproductive. And it takes the focus away from where it should be: Jesus and the hope that He brings and the power He has over sin. You can repent from ANYTHING!! You ALWAYS have hope!! The reason it isn't as hard as satan wants you to believe is that nothing is hard for Jesus. He has already conquered EVERYTHING. So trust Him. Let Him save you. He is mighty to save!
