OCTOBER 31 AND MARTIN LUTHER

 Here comes HALLOWEEN!

 What genuine Christians must do?

Some suggest having a Christianized version of Halloween. Others want to watch and do nothing because the movement is too big and nothing can stop it. Others prefer to withdraw themselves and their families out of its influence. Others feel that they may intervene by joining the parades either to enjoy the fun of it or to challenge those ignorant fanatics.

Coincidently in October 31th, 1517 when Halloween was already very popular not only as an entertainment but as a distorted way of ‘salvation’, a young priest decided to challenge his hierarchy and disturb the parades of that day by hanging 95 thesis at the door of the most public building of his town exactly where the parade was supposed to go through. The content of his hung sentences was destroying the very essence of Halloween, which was the indulgence business. Back then people were made to believe that by paying a special amount of money one could get the help and the prayers of all dead saints to rescue him from the attacks of wicked spirits of the dead who would revenge their death). But the action of this radical priest created a massive havoc, soon counted as a protest against the practices and the beliefs of the days, and the REFORMATION was birthed.

So if you call yourself a protestant, a reformer, an evangelical or just a true believer in Christ, this is the beginning of your movement of salvation by grace through faith in Christ’s work alone. Yes, it all started of Halloween day, 500 years ago next year Halloween.

 So now what are we going to do this Halloween day? Definitely it’s up to us and to what we really believe. As far the Bible and Christian history are concerned, no genuine Christian can accept Halloween practices. Every genuine Christian must do all he can to teach people (his friends, children, parents, neighbors even enemies) to renounce these practices and accept Christ and His deliverances from devilish influences.

It’s not only about the money and energy wasted but about being involved in something very devilish and contrary to the will of God. When it looks like intending to harm or to haunt you, don’t think it’s just charming and entertaining, it’s really enchanting and connecting you to wicked world of darkness. When it says ‘spirits’ don’t think it’s just costumes or apparels but it’s indeed spiritually connecting you to hidden spiritual evil beings.

Apostle Paul says: But I say that the things which the nations sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to God. And I do not desire that you should have fellowship with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot be partakers of the Lord's table and of a table of demons. Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He? All things are lawful to me, but not all things profit. All things are lawful to me, but not all things build up.” (1Corinthians 10:20-23)

IF IT LOOKS LIKE THE DEVIL IT MUST BE DEVILISH
