Why I don’t celebrate halloween

Halloween

Halloween is a celebration of death

and embracing of fear

and that’s playing with fire

expecting not to get burnt

it’s  like a game

but, a game of things that are real

fear is real

death,either spiritual or physical is real

ghosts are evil spirits

they make it  seem like make belief

but friends, there is a spiritual realm  out there

a realm that represents these things

these things are real my dear friends.

God is very real

so does the evil side.

                    I was born and grew up in Africa

                            and In our culture most people believe in ancestral worship

         Hence,there are different kinds of ceremonies about that kind of worship

                They believe you can talk to the dead and they can protect you

                             People beat drums and dance

                            until a spirit manifests in somebody.

                             as in embodying an individual.

                            Then,the spirits starts to speak.

a real conversation takes place

and everybody around it can attest.

Witchcraft is also very real in Africa

therefore, witch doctors are rampant

A witch doctor is a traditional healer

they use traditional medicine

they actually consult spirits

and treat ailments ’caused’ by witches

and people are usually scared of witches and witch doctors.

’cause if you mess with them,they can bewitch you

hence, from experience, I know these things are not a joke.

My relationship with God is very important

for I know what’s out there.

Why I don’t celebrate Halloween

1 Samuel 15:23 – Rebellion is as a sin of witchcraft

But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:

10 To whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, This man is the great power of God.

11 And to him they had regard, because that of long time he had bewitched them with sorceries.

12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.

13 Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done.

When Phillip went to Samaria

Simon the Sorcerer, saw the need to repent and he did.

Before, he was acting as if he was using the power of God

yet,it was evil powers

witchcraft is sin

it’s  part of spiritual  death and darkness

so is  fear/the spirit of fear

for it is of another kingdom

that is  the  kingdom of darkness

I belong to the Kingdom of light

I live under a different principle

of the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus

I’m in Christ

I alive under the principle of the law of the Holy Spirit

The Spirit of life

and truth

and life

Therefore, I celebrate life

and light

and truth

I don’t celebrate  death

and I don’t celebrate darkness

and fear

I celebrate life

Halloween in brief

Halloween celebrates spiritual and natural death:

witches and their craft
witchcraft is an evil craft
crafting spells and harming others
using malignant supernatural powers
from the kingdom of darkness
again, I say no fear here….
nor celebration of death and evil!

 2 Chronicles 33:1-6    

1.Manasseh was twelve years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem fifty-five years. 2.He did evil in the eyes of the Lord. Following the detestable practices of the nations the Lord had driven out before the Israelites. 3.He rebuilt the high places his father Hezekiah had demolished; also erected altars to the Baals and made Asherah poles. He bowed down to all the starry hosts and worshiped them. 4.He built altars in the temple of the Lord, of which the Lord had said, “My Name will remain in Jerusalem forever.” 5.In both courts of the temple of the Lord, he built altars to all the starry hosts. 6.He sacrificed his children in the fire in the Valley of Ben Hinnom. Practiced divination and witchcraft, sought omens, and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the eyes of the Lord, arousing his anger.

Manasseh did what  was evil. He practised divination,witchcraft ,consulted spiritists and medium. And God was angry.

That’s why  we need not take part in the worthless deeds of darkness but rather expose them. Ephesians 5:11

We also need to train our children in the right ways. I know it’s not easy, when almost every child is having a  hullabaloo about trick or treat. But we have champions to raise. Let’s train them in the right ways. I can see them kids up in arms in an uproar and fuss. But hey, who would give their children poison knowingly.

The Bible tells me to fear not

knowing that God loves me perfectly casts out any fears

and when I fear, I know I’m not comprehending His perfect love

for fear has torment

God gave me the Holy Spirit:

the Spirit of Power

Love

and a sound mind

fear is death

it causes confusion

panic

unreasonable phobias

anxious thoughts

hence irrational behavior

and at its worst, debilitates

I have no part in it

For, I don’t want to  contaminate my faith

 

halloween

 

Halloween-I follow Christ

I follow Christ

the way

plus the truth

and the life

therefore, anything  contrary is not my part

For my goal is not to have fear at all

any fear in my life

I fight it with the Power of the Holy Ghost

and the Word of God

…..No death here….

I don’t find anything fun about death and fear

So I embrace life

for I have the life of God

the eternal life

I got the Light

who is Jesus  Christ

and I’m light

’cause of Him

I’m under the law of The Spirit of life in Christ Jesus

so that’s the principle I live under http://superiordomain.net/spirit-of-life/

How can I fight fear

at the same time embrace it

I’m not a  spiritual schizophrenia

and hey, don’t stone  me

I have nothing against mental schizophrenic people

for I know  it’s a challenge

In a world full of hate and misfortunes and mental torment

how can I celebrate the same things

I’m supposed to fight

How can I celebrate torture

and torment

plus harm

I celebrate life!
