Dealing with the devil

In the past, the most you might see outside of someone’s house during this time of year would be a jack-o’-lantern, and maybe a ghost hung up in a tree. These things have their own roots in paganism and the occult.

Now, I am seeing people decorate their houses for Halloween like they would at Christmas (another holiday with historical pagan roots centered on sun god worship).

Goblins, ghosts, witches, this is the new nativity scene for this day and age.

Just a crazy thought, but what exactly is fun about scaring the living daylights out of young children?

What benefit is it for them to walk up to a house that likely will give them nightmares for days, or possibly weeks, and all for what? A sack of candy?

All these things that many believe are harmless are, in fact, dealing with the devil. In the Bible, some of God’s children brought these things (idols, ways, etc.) into their lives and that is opening the door to the devil, because to do such things is rebellion against God. 1 Samuel 15:23, “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft. ...”

We wonder why our children, and even adults, do some of the horrid things you read about in the news.

Perhaps it’s because we are delivering them straight to the altar of the devil when we expose them to these occultist traditions?

It’s time to turn to the altar of Yeshua (Jesus).
