Well we are coming up on that one day of the year when “Christians” dump Christ and choose to wallow in the muck and mire with the enemy.
I call it spiritual adultery, in other words, basically sleeping with a whore once a year.
Who’s the whore? Satan
Christians will make all kinds of excuses about how fun it is or what a great way to reach people, … Yada, yada, yada.
Sleeping with a whore is sleeping with a whore no matter how fancy or dirty she may be.
One is committing adultery no matter what.
Wives, how would you feel if you found out your husband was entertaining a woman of the night once a year?
Men, what if you found out your wife was entertaining a male prostitute once a year?
Get what I am saying here?
So why do we commit spiritual adultery with Satan on one of his highest holidays?
You enjoy sleeping with the Whore Satan?
I know that I am ticking off a lot of people right now saying what I am saying, but like it or not, that is what you are doing.
Because Jesus Christ is “not visible” before our eyes, we have no problem getting in bed with that prostitute and we justify in so many ways.
I know for a fact that I am going to get a bunch of email from people telling me that I am wrong, being judgmental, I am a pharisee, why can’t I let the kids have fun, Kirk Cameron says it’s ok, etc, etc, etc.
Listen, you want to whore around with Satan… Go for it, it does not effect me one way or the other.
Who it does matter to is the one who paid the price for your very soul. He was tortured, whipped, scourged, bled, mocked, hung on the cross and died a horrible death all for you… And how do you repay that love? You go get in bed with Satan once a year dressed up as what ever and unite yourself with the enemy all in the name of fun and the flesh.
You are then going to sleep off the spiritual hangover all day Saturday and then go to Church on Sunday and talk to all the other spiritual adulterers about all the “fun” you had.
Again, how would your husband or wife feel if you did the same thing and cheated on them?
Pretty bad right?
I bet if you cheated on your wife or husband you would also feel pretty guilty too, right?
SO why don’t “Christians” feel the same guilt when they cheat on Christ with Satan?
1 Corinthians 10:21 (KJV) Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
Galatians 5:17 for the flesh lusteth against the spirit, and the spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.
1John 2:4-5(KJV) He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. 5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
Here is a statement by Harry Ironside, a great fundamental pastor.
“Error is like leaven, of which we read, “A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.” Truth mixed with error is equivalent to all error, except that it is more innocent looking and, therefore, more dangerous. God hates such a mixture! Any error, or any truth-and-error mixture, calls for definite exposure and repudiation. To condone such is to be unfaithful to God and His Word and treacherous to imperiled souls for whom Chris died.” –H.A. Ironside
True Christian or Just Another C.I.N.O.?
Time to do a check up from the neck up and REALLY ask yourself, Who Do You Serve?
What distinguishes a true Christian from a C.I.N.O.?
In most cases the answer is one word – guilt.
Those who are truly Christians are convicted when they sin and feel guilt whenever they do sin ( and we all sin).
Those who aren’t true Christians don’t feel guilt, either because they have quenched the Holy Spirit or because they were never saved in the first place.
If fact, one of the sure ways to find out if you are really saved is how you react to sin.
If you just shrug it off and say “everyone sins” then you have problems.
If you hate every sin you have committed and feel guilt every time, it is safe to say that you are saved.
SO if you are going to choose to whore around with Satan tonight, ask yourself the morning after, how do you feel?
Guilty or just “shrug it off” because everyone is doing it?
Then ask yourself who do you really love – Christ or Satan?
If you liked whoring around, felt no guilt and justified it, odds are you aren’t one of His.
See, it is a common lie told by many CINOs – “It’s who you know that gets you into heaven.”
Actually, this is wrong. It is who knows YOU.
Here is what I mean. I know George W Bush, he was the president, he lives in Texas. I am even able to drive up to his front gates where he lives.
If I drive there today and pull up to his gate, Secret Service agents will stop me, look me in the eye and ask me what I am doing there.
My response “Well I am here to see George W” and flash him the pearly whites.
He asks my name, checks his list, asks if I have an appointment and does not see my name on the list.
Although I know of George W Bush, he does not know me.
So, am I gaining access to this former president?
Nope, nada, no way.
Same goes with Christ. Just because YOU know Him does not mean HE knows you.
Well, He does in His God manner, He knows everything. But what you are not, is one of His children.
Matthew 7:21-23 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.
22 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?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
So, if you choose to go out whoring with Satan tonight and you claim the title Christian. Look yourself in the mirror and get real with yourself and ask “Who do you REALLY serve?”
I hope these words sting and cut to the bone. It is the truth and it does not matter if you like it or not, it still is the truth.
No sugar coating and no Halloween candy from me. No siree….
So the choice is yours.
Stay true to your first love, or go whore around with the enemy.
What will matter is how you will react to your choice / action the morning after.
That will tell who you REALLY care for, love and serve.
Be ready for an eye opener one way or the other.

I used to have a love affair with Halloween. In fact, you might have called it an obsession. Even several years after I gave my heart to Jesus, I still harbored a pretty decent crush on costume shops, individually wrapped miniature candies, and “good” spookiness, all in the name of fun.
Even when I started to feel a little uncomfortable with it, I purposed that I would simply tone it down a little and not let it consume too big a part of my heart. Just a little flirting once a year, because surely my one true Love knew my heart belonged to Him. Just like my husband wouldn’t mind at all if I spent a little time with old boyfriends once a year — you know, just for old times’ sake. After all, he wants me to be happy and would never want me to miss out on any fun.
You know I’m kidding, of course. My husband would have nothing to do with that sort of thinking. And neither did the Holy Spirit. After a few years of ignoring His gentle tugging on my heart, I finally decided to prayerfully consider giving up Halloween.
The more I learned, the more I became convinced that this “holiday” (a word that means “holy day,” by the way) was not honoring to God in any way. I began to see that my refusal to give up Halloween was evidence of a divided heart — but Jesus wants my whole heart.
