Sleeping with the Enemy

It's no secret that we are quickly approaching October 31st, the day deemed as "Halloween".  Many years ago, against the warnings of godly men and woman, our country adopted this day as an american holiday.  Since that time, many american families have celebrated Halloween as a fun family tradition. As a matter of fact, Halloween has become so popular that it is given as much thought and attention to as Christmas in most american homes.  In retail, sales of Halloween related items has sky rocketed and is threatening to top Christmas in sales worldwide.  Halloween is quickly becoming the #1 celebrated holiday.  Now that is SCARY!!

In recent years the denominal Chrisian world, and some Apostolics, have also embraced Halloween as a holiday on their calendar. Many churches and youth groups across the country now celebrate this day by hosting a Trunk or Treat, a costume party or passing out Halloween tracts to the neighborhood children.  This is not only scary, it is downright DISTURBING!!! 

I have to ask, has everyone lost their minds?  Have they forgotten what Halloween truly is and where it originated from?  Have they forgotten what Halloween is in celebration of?  Halloween was not created by someone whose interest was to make children happy by filling them up on candy, or by someone who just wanted another occasion to celebrate. 

Halloween originated straight out of the depths of hell when the Druids, the priests of Satan's church, dedicated this day (or night, I should say) on their calendar to celebrate the dead, to worship and offer sacrifice to Satan and the gods of the underworld.  It was a night dedicated for the spirits of unrest to roam the earth seeking whom they might inhabit.  The wearing of masks and costumes was adopted so that humans could "disguise" themselves in order to trick the evil spirits from being able capture and possess them.  Halloween is the night that witches, wizards and enchanters all over the world practice their evil magic, casting spells and holding seances to call the dead up from the underworld.  It is the devil's day and there is nothing "holy" about it.  The Druids held the midnight hour, the hour known as the bewitching hour,  as sacred.  They revere darkness instead of light and anyone who participates in anything that was and is held sacred by them are "flirting with evil".

With that in mind, I have to ask why in the world would people who claim be to Christians have anything to do with this event or allow their children to partake in it?  Aren't we the children of light and life?  Then why would we consider participating in anything that holds darkness and the dead sacred.  Have we forgotten what the bible teaches?

Be ye NOT unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?  And what communion hath light with darkness.  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  Wherefore come out from among them and be ye SEPARATE, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.  2 Corin. 6:14-17

This is not just talking about not being married to someone who isn't a believer.  It is talking about fellowshipping and partaking in the things, including the activities and celebrations, of unbelievers. 

Besides all this, the Bible clearly tells us in passage after passage that God's people should have nothing to do with the dead, with witches, wizards, sorcerers, enchanters, those with familiar spirits, necromancers, observers of time, or any other person, group or sect who practices magic, deceipt and who delves into a spiritual world with which they do not belong.  To actively partake in any of their rituals or customs is an abomination to God.  In fact God considers you to have "cheated on him".  It's one thing for the unbelieving world to partake in this evil day, but for a Christian to partake in Halloween, no matter what their reasoning, has graduated from just flirting with evil to sleeping with the enemy, and their very soul is at stake. 

And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people. 
Lev. 20:6

Enter NOT into the path of the wicked, and go NOT in the way of evil men. Prov. 4:14

There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: 
Deut. 18:10-12

For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for THEE, the Lord thy God hath NOT suffered thee so to do.  Deut. 18:14

We, God's people, have not been given permission to partake in these sorts of celebrations, though we dwell in the same land as those who do.  As a matter of fact, WE have been told NOT to do so, and the Christian world, especially Apostolics, would do themselves well to STOP celebrating the devils holiday!  It's time to quit "Sleeping with the Enemy"!!!
