Today is a day many celebrate Halloween, a celebration fraught with unhealthy and unholy activities. Here is an interesting link if you are interested in the origins of Halloween:
Are you aware that on this day in history Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the Wittenberg Castle Church door igniting the Protestant Reformation  which among other things reconstituted the Biblical truth of the priesthood of all believers, and nearly 400 years later  Evan Roberts ignited the Welsh Revival which in turned spawned other mighty moves of God?
As Christians, we should celebrate these and other kingdom activities instead of Halloween. What if our children were taught Christian history, revival history, the testimony of God’s activities in the earth instead of partnering with a celebration that glorifies pagan practices.
Psalms 66 – “1 Shout joyfully to God, all the earth; 2 Sing the glory of His name; Make His praise glorious. 3 Say to God, ‘How awesome are Your works! Because of the greatness of Your power Your enemies will give feigned obedience to You. 4 All the earth will worship You, and will sing praises to You; They will sing praises to Your name.’ Selah.5 Come and see the works of God, Who is awesome in His deeds toward the sons of men. 6 He turned the sea into dry land; They passed through the river on foot; There let us rejoice in Him!7 He rules by His might forever; His eyes keep watch on the nations; Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.”
In this text we are invited, encouraged to publicly, enthusiastically and demonstratively glorify God, as well as to “come and see the works of God.”
These works were hundreds of years prior to this invitation. What were they, and we, supposed to see? God’s deliverance out of Egypt [land of darkness] and His deliverance into the land of Promise.
- God did all the work to get His people out of the land of darkness – “He turned the sea into dry land.”
- His people had to do the work of entering into the land of darkness at great risk [the Jordan was at flood stage] – “They passed through the river on foot.”
- It is at the place of greatest risk [our entering into our land of Promise [Divine purpose for our lives] that we are to rejoice in Him.
- God never delivers anyone out of a place that He does not want them entering into a much better place. The question is will we do what God requires of us to do to enter that place.
So, October 31 – will it be a day to participate in the deeds of darkness or grow more in the Light?
Ephesians 5 – “6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore do not be partakers with them; 8 for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light 9 (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), 10 trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. 11 Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; 12 for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. 13 But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light.”
If you are a Biblical Christian living Biblical Christianity and participate in Halloween activities, it should be for the sole purpose of advancing God’s Light [Jesus] into the areas of darkness you venture into. If not, you are partnering with darkness and the prince who rules that domain!
“Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” – not candy! Sweet!
Receive and steward God’s passion, power, presence, priority, process, promises, protection, provision, pruning, purging, purity and purpose!
