Should we “think on these things?”

Greetings in these last days of life on earth. Before getting into this Newsletter I feel I must make it known that I am aware that many that receive the Newsletters would never think twice about joining in Halloween festivities. However, the Lord has allowed this ministry to step into households that do in fact call Christ Lord, yet for some unknown reason see no wrong in such evil activities. It is for these Christians I make this humble appeal.

As Christians should we participate in those things we know to be evil? Is it not apparent to even those babes in Christ that murder, suicide, and acts of torture are of Satan and should not be glorified. Things of this sort should never entice us to partake, or worse yet, lead us to train our children to revel in.

This “conditioning” of the masses by Satan is becoming more and more apparent as to what end he is educating them. Think about that with your “prophecy understanding” cap on for a moment. Prophecy declares the wicked will seek to kill the remnant one day in a global war openly and legally waged against us. Every homestead, cave, jail cell, or wooded area that harbors a Christian will one day see people from all over the world gathered about them with the authorization of the governing powers to take their lives. Armageddon is a prophetic surety!

Some may think I am grasping at straws here. Of them I ask, have you seen how people decorate their front laws on Halloween lately? Have you seen how they dress their children? Have you also noticed they go DOOR TO DOOR literally “dressed to kill.” One day soon they will be going door to door but the costumes will be REAL. Soon those plastic knives, pitchforks, and axes will be real as well. Satan is conditioning the masses right before our very eyes! All over front lawns we see graves, hanging corpses, guillotines, jack-o-lanterns, torture chambers, dismembered bodies, and other unspeakable acts of terror. They dress in costumes depicting mass murderers, decapitated victims, satanic characters, and evil Hollywood superstars. The list is truly endless as to what people will dress their children in! Is this training the children in ways they should go? Every aspect of evil is glorified and made to appear 100% acceptable and wholesome! Yet IT’S KNOWN WORLDWIDE TO BE EVIL! 1 Thessalonians 5:22 boldly proclaims that we should, "Abstain from all appearance of evil." Yet parents that claim to be Christians not only dress and revel in such evils, they train their children to do so as well! And worse yet, Catholic as well as Protestant churches are now raising money by charging admission to enter their “Haunted Houses!”

Philippians 4:8-9, "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.  Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you."

Satan is conditioning the masses in both and open as well as subtly way. Truth is, it has already started to prove itself effective! Just this morning I received an email alerting me that a women committed suicide by hanging herself outside her home and EVERYONE thought it was a normal Halloween display!

Hanging Mistaken for Halloween Decoration

FREDERICA, Del. AP (Oc t. 27) - The apparent suicide of a woman found hanging from a tree went unreported for hours because passers-by thought the body was a Halloween decoration, authorities said. The 42-year-old woman used rope to hang herself across the street from some homes on a moderately busy road late Tuesday or early Wednesday, state police said. The body, suspended about 15 feet above the ground, could be easily seen from passing vehicles. State police spokesman Cpl. Jeff Oldham and neighbors said people noticed the body at breakfast time Wednesday but dismissed it as a holiday prank. Authorities were called to the scene more than three hours later. "They thought it was a Halloween decoration," Fay Glanden, wife of Mayor William Glanden, told The (Wilmington) News Journal. "It looked like something somebody would have rigged up," she said. 10/27/05 13:55 EDT

What does this say about society today? We actually have a time of year that dead bodies on front lawns is considered acceptable? That’s insane!

What does Halloween have to offer?

Halloween actually began over 2000 years ago by the Pagan priests, or “Druids” as they were commonly known. The Druids were infamous for their cultic practices. They delved strongly into Witchcraft, Satanism, as well as Paganism. Everything you see associated with Halloween today has been attributed to the Druids demonic invention.

The original Halloween was actually November 1st. Druids actually celebrated two major days of the year. One to mark the birth of Summer, (Beltane) and the other to mark it’s death. (Samhain) November 1st was the “death day” or the “day of the dead” for the Druids. It was on this day they offered human sacrifice as well.

During “Samhain” the Druids believed a mystic veil was lifted from off the dead allowing the roaming spirits of the dead free access to the living.

The so called “roaming spirits” were said to be in search of a living body to possess. In order to prevent the “spirits” from gaining access to your soul, the Celts would masquerade as demons and other evil entities to try and scare off the roaming spirits. Another method to “appease” the spirits was the setting up of meals as “treats”. If no food was placed for them, the roaming spirits would commit malicious acts or “tricks” that was believed would cause a myriad problems.

Each “Halloween” the Druids would also enter a town and seek the “meals” from the people. If no meal was given, more often then not they would take a first born virgin child from the house instead too use in many decadent ways that always ended in torture and murder.

After removing the child from the home they would carve a pumpkin as a “Jack-o-Lantern” so as to inform the next group of Druids not to stop at this house because a virgin was already taken. The face on the pumpkin was preferred as it made it appear more like a decapitated human head. They would also place a candle in the pumpkin that was made from human fat! The reason for the candle is that the Druids believed the “head” of the human housed the soul, so the “light of the soul” was allowed to burn on. Most Druid temples and homes were decorated with actual human heads. The bloodier the better, as the drinking of blood held great significance to their rituals as well. In all Druid dwellings you would find skulls with candles affixed in them as well. They believed this was necessary to scare off the demons. The skull is also prominent in demon worship as a celebration of death.

I recall as a youth other aspects of Halloween that were encouraged that otherwise would have been considered illegal any other day of the year. We could ”T-Pee” a house with toilet paper, or cover the front of the house with eggs or even write obscenities all over the windows with chunks of wax, or even place flaming bags filled with animal feces on front porches after knocking on the door. All of this was considered good clean fun! I recall one time where my brothers and I were on the roof of our home after dark pelting the neighborhood trick or treaters and their parents with dozens of eggs. Never once did we consider how this would humiliate the children and even their parents!

And yes, the Roman Catholic church has had it’s hand in all of this as well. They have even adopted Halloween and renamed it as they did all the other Pagan “holy”days.

Back in 835AD, Pope Gregory IV actually BLESSED “all Saints day” as a sacred and “holy day of obligation.” That meant you MUST go to church on that day if you were a Catholic! In essence the Roman Catholic church ordained Halloween for the Christian world. Historic fact remains, if it wasn’t for the Catholic church, this demonic “holy”day would have been done away with long ago. But thanks to their evil tendencies we are now “blessed” by this demonic decadence on an annual basis! I am not even going to get into what the Homosexual community does on this day.

The Catholic church “hallowed”, or taught Halloween was “holy” in the same manner Christ taught we should look upon the name of His Father when He illustrated an outline to prayer in Matthew chapter 6. The same terminology is extremely apparent here. Whether the prelates of Rome will admit it or not, the fact remains clear in the naming of this day!

The word “hallow” is defined as such by Strong’s Concordance…

#37 hagiazo {hag-ee-ad'-zo}
 from 40; TDNT - 1:111,14; v

 AV - sanctify 26, hallow 2, be holy 1; 29

 1) to render or acknowledge, or to be venerable or hallow
 2) to separate from profane things and dedicate to God
    2a) consecrate things to God
    2b) dedicate people to God
 3) to purify
    3a) to cleanse externally
    3b) to purify by expiation: free from the guilt of sin
    3c) to purify internally by renewing of the soul

What is holy or purified about Halloween? Is it the murder? Is it its flamboyant theme and preoccupation with death? Is it the razor blades in apples or the poison in the candy? Is it the pitchforks, the axe, or the bloodied butcher knife? Is it the decapitated victim? The deformed faces? The demonic rituals? The depiction of the corpse hanging from the trees? The young girl masquerading with 10 knives in her chest? Or is it the children dressed as witches, demons, ghosts, or goblins? Last but not least, what about the cross-dressing of both genders on this day?

To make such a Satanic “holy”day appear to be HALLOWED is to give Satan his first desire. It has been revealed thousands of years ago that Satan wants to “be like the most High” in Isaiah 14:14. Yet Christians from all walks of life see no wrong in giving the devil his day? In fact, in a Roman Catholic community near Chicago the local park district put out a monthly flyer for October with October 30th declared DEVIL DAY! They are no longer hiding their darkest desires!

To give him allegiance, reverence, acceptance, is to give him worship LIKE THE MOST HIGH!

Halloween is the day of the Witch. The Word of God is plain in Exodus 22:18 when it declares the fate of a witch within thy camp. Now I am not saying go out and kill young girls or boys that dress as a witch. No! That would be murder. What I am saying is why give life and or acceptance to that which is of Satan? And why “in God’s name” would we as Christians teach our children that Halloween is a blessed and “HALLOWED” day when in fact it’s central theme glorifies Satan?

The Roman Catholic church has blessed this day. They have guaranteed it’s survival and fashioned grand acceptance in that very act. Rome is simply a Pagan church designed to mix truth with error so as to gain souls for Hell. Nothing more, nothing less. This is what Satan needed to create in order to stealthily gain souls without arousing suspicion. It is the “wolves in sheep's clothing” we have been so perfectly warned of. Sadly, if Rome wants to teach the masses to be damned, there is not much we can do but warn the masses and pray for those that believe our acts of love should be curtailed by authorities…

Church's Anti-Halloween Flier Upsets Family
Complaint Filed With Police

POSTED: 7:47 pm EST October 19, 2005

UPDATED: 9:40 am EST October 20, 2005

ELLETTSVILLE, Ind. -- An Ellettsville family whose home is decorated for Halloween contacted police after someone placed on its porch a flier that suggests Halloween praises the devil.  Dalene Gully said she took offense to the flier, which was placed outside her home by the House of Prayer Church of Bloomington.  "I started reading it, and I was very, very upset by it. I found it very accusatory and very threatening," Gully told RTV6's Ben Morriston on Wednesday. The church's pastor, Larry Mitchell, said the people who left the flier would have preferred to talk with Gully, but she wasn't there.

Mitchell said the church didn't intend to upset the Gully family, but rather tell people that Halloween isn't harmless fun.

"Halloween is not fantasy," Mitchell said. "We're training up our children, and obviously this lady was trained up in this. Halloween seems like it is taking just as much prominence as Christmas." The Gully family filed a complaint with the Ellettsville Police Department. The incident also prompted the family to install an alarm system at the home, Morriston reported.

"This is my home, and I like Halloween. If I want to decorate my home, I have every right to decorate my home," Gully said.

 I Thank You my brother for your dedication to the ministry of Jesus Christ! After reading the information on your website over and over again, I am truly convinced that God has empowered you to carry the Truth throughout the entire world.  Yes, we present-truth SDA christians will encounter opposition where the truth is preached, but PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do not give up.  Jesus will soon return with all of His angels to grant to every man according as his work shall be, including yours.  You will be constantly in my prayers.

Thank You!
Bro. Derek

I am a former Catholic.  Even at a very young age, I did not buy their brain washing and false doctorine.  If only the so-called hierachy of the church would read the B-I-B-L-E, the Word of God, they would see the truth.  I have tried to explain these false teachings to my family, they will not have it.  Because out of alligance to their parents, and tradition, they do not search for the truth.  They keep on the \"parroting\" catholic babble, rules and regulations that our Lord, Jesus Christ, NEVER spoke of.  This Catholic religion is very dangerous and I believe in my spirit, it will fall.  I wonder how many people are floating around in hell because they ate meat on Friday; but since it wasn\'t popular with the wondering catholics, that rule has now been changed too.  Why can\'t catholic see through the smoke screen of a religion that does only what is popular to keep their parishioners under their thumbs.  It kills me to think of how many souls will be lost because of greed, false doctorine, lies and demonic trappings.  I pray for all of them, that they see the light, like I did.  The Holy Spirit has saved me and by God\'s grace has brought me into a intimate relationship with Jesus.  One that has lifted me up to spiritual truth, love and peace.  PS:  Mother Angelica should not be on TV with her misleading teachings and what about the idolitary?  Selling statues, praying to Mary, etc.  It is so sad that people will grasp at anything they are told and not seek what God has planted in their hearts.  Thank you for your time in reading this.  It felt good to get it off my chest.  I have written other catholic web sites asking them to refrain from these teachings, and have never heard one word from them.  MMMMMM, wonder why? 

Thank you, Gloria
