Halloween is a celebration of death
and embracing of fear
hence that’s playing with fire
whilst 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
Halloween- portraying it like make-belief
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 Zimbabwean 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 start 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 a sin of witchcraft
9 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 for a long time he had bewitched them with sorcery
12 But when they believed Philip preaching the things about 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
Therefore, I celebrate life
I don’t celebrate death
and I don’t celebrate darkness
I celebrate life
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 the 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. built altars in the temple of the Lord, of which the Lord had said, “My Name will stay 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 practiced divination, witchcraft, consulted spiritists and mediums. 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 trick or treat. But we have champions to raise. Let’s train them in the right ways. I can see the 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
and a sound mind
fear is a death
it causes confusion
hence irrational behavior
and at its worst, debilitates
I have no part in it
For, I don’t want to contaminate my faith
Halloween-I follow Christ
I follow Christ
plus the truth
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
I celebrate life!
