Do God's Work and all Your Needs will be Met

God always provides for our needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:19

As long as we are doing the work of the Lord God will always meet our needs. As long as we are pointing others to God, He will always see that you have plenty.

Do the work of the Lord share what you know from the bible and share your testimony of how you were healed or set free and God …

Why Christians Absolutely Should Not Celebrate Halloween

Setting aside a day to celebrate evil, darkness, witchcraft, fear, death and the demonic brings disdain to God.  Period.

Setting aside a day to celebrate evil, darkness, witchcraft, fear, death and the demonic brings disdain to God. Period.

Many Christians celebrate Halloween. Some churches and pastors even do.

I recently saw a church advertising they were having a Zombie Run. Seriously? God's House?

This pastor does not celebrate Halloween and neither does her church.

In a spirit of full disclosure, when I was a brand-new believer, I allowed my son to go trick-or-treating. Part of the reason was because my husband was not yet saved and insisted we do. The other part was because I didn't see the harm in it.

After all, many Christians I respected did it, so as a new Christian I justified that it must be OK. Right? Wrong!

As I grew closer to the Lord and gained more knowledge of His Word, I began to feel convicted about Halloween. I had thoughts like:

God is a God of life, but Halloween focuses on death. Should I celebrate a holiday where people decorate their front yards with tombstones?

The Scriptures tell us to put away deeds of darkness (Rom.13:12)
and that light has nothing in common with darkness (2 Cor. 6:14).
Is celebrating a dark holiday something a child of the light should be doing?

I had been delivered from fear and panic attacks and knew that fear comes from the enemy. Should I participate in a holiday that has fear as its very foundation?

Witchcraft is clearly detestable to the Lord (Deut 18:10-13).

Shouldn't something that glorifies witchcraft (just take a walk through the Halloween store) be detestable to me as well?"

Halloween is a sacred, high holiday for Wiccans (the official religion of witchcraft).

Is this a holiday Christians should celebrate alongside Wiccans?
Is it cute when we dress our kids like the devil (or witches, ghouls, scary characters, etc.)?

Isn't it, well, demonic?

What if my child dresses in a wholesome fireman costume?

Romans 16:19 says that we need to be wise to what is good and innocent of evil.

If I let him participate in Halloween, even while dressed as a fireman, aren't I sending him a mixed message by allowing him to participate in a celebration of evil?

The Lord said in 2 Cor. 6:17, "Come out from them and be separate ... Touch no unclean thing ..."

Doesn't God want His children to be set apart from the world and from sin and evil?

Aren't we supposed to be peculiar people?

My extended family thinks it's ridiculous that we not allow our son to dress up for Halloween. Should their opinions matter to me more than God's? Shouldn't pleasing God be my utmost concern?

If there is even a question in my heart and mind that it might be wrong, shouldn't that be my first clue? Why would I continue to do so with even a lingering thought that it is wrong?


Does Halloween bring glory to God? No! It glorifies the devil! Nuff said.




So as a new believer, saved only two years, I responded to the conviction of the Holy Spirit, repented of displeasing the Lord and put a stop to Halloween. And as a pastor, after observing firsthand the amount of destruction that the enemy brings into peoples' lives when they give him a foothold, I am even more convinced I made the right decision to close the door to the enemy and on this evil holiday.




Setting aside a day to celebrate evil, darkness, witchcraft, fear, death and the demonic brings disdain to God. Period. A Christian celebrating Halloween would be like a Satan worshiper putting up a nativity scene at Christmas while singing, "Happy Birthday, Jesus!" The two just don't go together. Jesus has nothing in common with Satan (2 Cor. 6:14), and neither should we.




So, what did we do instead? Hide in the basement with the lights off? Hustle the family out of the house? No, darkened homes are the enemy's victory! Where does your light shine the brightest ... in the darkness!



Halloween is the one day a year when neighbors come to your door expecting to receive something. So give them JESUS! Our family chose to give God the glory and the devil a black eye by reaching out to our neighbors with the gospel of Jesus Christ! "You are the light of the world ... let your light shine among men that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven" (Matt. 5:14-16).
So stop justifying why it is fine to celebrate this demonic, worldly, evil holiday. There are no muddled lines or gray areas about it. A committed follower of Jesus Christ should not celebrate Halloween.
