WHAT MANY CHRISTIANS DO NOT KNOW ABOUT HALLOWEEN

Share...Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedInPrint this pageEmail this to someone

Halloween is a highly pagan holiday shrouded in witchcraft and attention to everything evil and dark. Traditionally though, it is said to have been a commemoration of saints that were martyred for their faith in God, hence the macabre costumes. Halloween today has evolved into a modern-day mix of the two.

Halloween originated from the Celtic festival of Samhain celebrated from October 31st to November 1st, marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year. In ancient Celtic stories, Samhain was a magical time of transition when important battles were fought and fairies cast spells. Over time, Samhain evolved into the modern Halloween and has been observed by Celtic Neo-pagans and Wiccans.

In the United States, the origins of Halloween started with the early settlers. When early American settlers came from England, many of them brought various beliefs about ghosts and witches with them. In the 1800s, many immigrants from Ireland and Scotland arrived in the United States and introduced their Halloween traditions. Other groups added their own cultural influences to Halloween customs. German immigrants brought a vivid witchcraft lore, and Haitian [...]

THE QUALIFICATIONS FOR BEING A JEZEBEL IN THE CHURCH

First of all, in order for you to have the evil spirit of Jezebel, you must be a woman! Why is this?

Jesus made this very clear while admonishing the church of Thyatira. He told them:

“But I have this complaint against you. You are permitting that woman—that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet—to lead my servants astray.” Revelations 2:20 NLT

Here is Jesus specifically emphasizing the word “THAT”; you are permitting “THAT WOMAN” – that Jezebel, that is because Jesus was referring to the infamous wicked woman ‘Queen Jezebel’ from the Old Testament days, who was known for undermining the authority of her husband King Ahab, by controlling and manipulating him and taking over his leadership. (See 1. Kings 21)

The reason the Jezebel Spirit only pertains to women is because men have been given natural authority from God, it’s not something they would need to fight to get, they already have it as the Bible says, “But there is one thing I want you to know: The head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” 1. Corinthians 11:3 NLT

Women, on the [...]

Because, “Many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people!” Matthew 24:11 NLT

They will preach a different Jesus, a different kind of Spirit and a different kind of gospel! (See 2. Corinthians 11:4)

They twist the Scriptures to mean something quite different! (See 2. Peter 3:16)

“In their greed, they will make up clever lies to get hold of your money!” 2. Peter 2:3 NLT

They will perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones! (See Matthew 24:24)

Like Satan, these false prophets disguise themselves as angel of lights, like servants of righteousness! (See 2. Corinthians 11:14-15)

They trick people with lies so clever they sound like the truth! (See Ephesians 4:14)

Jesus made this very clear when He said: “See, I have warned you about this ahead of time!” Matthew 25:25 NLT

“Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves.” Matthew 7:15 NLT

Therefore, you must search the Scriptures to see if what these people are teaching is indeed the truth! (See Acts 17:11)

DO I HAVE TO CELEBRATE THE FEAST OF TABERNACLES? NO THANKS!

We are in the Jewish holiday week of Sukkot, also known as the feast of Booths or Tabernacles. It is an agricultural festival that originally was considered a thanksgiving for the fruit harvest. Sukkot are hut-like structures that the Jews lived in during the 40 years of travel through the wilderness after the exodus from Egypt.

The Jews were instructed by God through Moses the following: “Begin celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles on the fifteenth day of the appointed month—five days after the Day of Atonement. This festival to the Lord will last for seven days.” Leviticus 23:34 NLT

“This festival will be a happy time of celebrating with your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, and the Levites, foreigners, orphans, and widows from your towns.” Deuteronomy 16:14 NLT

“For seven days you must present special gifts to the Lord. The eighth day is another holy day on which you present your special gifts to the Lord. This will be a solemn occasion, and no ordinary work may be done that day.” Leviticus 23:36 NLT

During this time, many Jews construct what is called a sukkah, a small hastily built hut in [...]
