Oxymoron? Christians Celebrating Halloween?

ray-gano-medWell it is that time of the year again… Halloween. But what gets me is that I am amazed at how many Christians celebrate it in one form or another.  People justify it by calling it innocent fun, or even go as far as “Christianizing” it by having a “Fall Harvest Festival” or dressing up kids in your favorite biblical character.

But when the rubber meets the road, this is Satan’s High Holy Day. Folks, If you are a Christian, you know that too. There is no claiming ignorance on this one. So being a Christian, why are you even dabbling in celebrating this day at all?  Scripture says…

Romans 12:2 (KJV) “and be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Christ suffered and died for our sins, he gave his all. It is our reasonable service to live a life holy and acceptable unto Him.

Let me ask all of you this…

How many of you have prominent pictures of old girlfriends or boyfriends in your house?

How many of you call up your old boyfriends or girlfriends on your “dating” anniversary?

Do any of you celebrate anything dealing with an old flame at all?

Odds are that you do not. In fact your significant other would be rather upset if you did and would be downright hurt and broken-hearted.

Let me ask you this…

Why are we celebrating a holiday dedicated to our enemy no matter what we call it or how we justify it? Why are we “cheating” on Christ? It is just a little innocent fun?

Isn’t that what the world calls an “affair” — just a little fun on the side?

Do you realize that this is what is celebrated….

What people are doing when they celebrate the enemies / world’s holidays is committing spiritual adultery.

Scripture says…

Exodus 20:14 (KJV) Thou shalt not commit adultery.

I have read articles today condoning the celebration in one form or another, but no matter what, it still boils down to spiritual adultery. Everything else is splitting hairs with the world in desire of the flesh.

Are you willing to cheat on your significant other?

Can you even imagine cheating on the one you love?

Then why are we doing that very thing with Jesus Christ who gave His very life so that we may spend eternity in heaven?

Romans 12:1(KJV) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

Is one evening of a little worldly pleasure worth that breaking the heart of our Lord and Savior?

You can blow me off and call me legalistic, but now that you know this, how is Christ going to feel knowing that you are committing adultery against Him?

Are you presenting your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God?

But more than that, are you living up to which is your reasonable service as called to by scripture?

no-halloweenWho Do You Serve?

Jesus stated the following…

John 14:6 (KJV) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

If you do not have Christ in your life, you will spend eternity in hell. This is a fact. It does not matter if you believe this or not, it is the truth spoken by Jesus himself. If your name is not written in the Lambs Book of Life you will go to hell for what you have not done and that is accepting Christ as your personal savior.

To be placed in the Lamb Book of Life, you need to turn your life completely over to Him.

Having “head” knowledge or “just believing in Christ” is not the same as having “heart” knowledge with Christ living in your heart.

We know that even the devils believe in Him, where are they spending eternity?

James 2:19 (KJV) Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

We work hard at Prophezine to show that Bible Prophecy is coming to pass. Because of this fact, the Bible is true. Since the Bible is the true and inerrant word of God, there is a heaven and there is a hell.

If you claim the title of “Christian” then take account of yourself this day. Many claim the title, but we read in God’s Word that the title does not get you into heaven.

Matthew 7:21(KJV) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Matthew 7:22 (KJV) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Matthew 7:23 (KJV) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Who you serve will determine where you will spend eternity. If you are not serving Christ and a true child of God, then you are serving Satan and a child of the enemy.
If you are not 110% sure, then take account of yourself, your very life depends upon it.

1John 1:9 (KJV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
