Halloween actually means the "Eve of All Saints Day"! Back in the day, the Christians who were winning the world and growing by leaps and bounds wanted to give their new converts something to celebrate other than their traditional Dark Pagan holidays, which glorified False Gods and Dark Forces.
Their solution was to set aside a day... All Hallows (Saints) Day (November 1st) to celebrate the warriors and hero's of the faith. The men and women who had stood up for God and Given their lives for the Lord! The day before All Hallows Day was All Hallows Eve or as we know it now... Halloween.
Now it's largely reverted back into a pagan holiday of ghosts & goblins... candy and big cash payouts for costumes, parties & decorations. Not much Holy or Hallow about it at all.
1st... Give Your Kids The Truth
Tell 'em what the day really is. Bring 'em up to speed on how things have gotten twisted and turned around.
2nd... Accentuate The Good & Positive
You don't have to dwell on darkness... or all the enemy has done to hijack the holiday. Just stick to the positive. Make it what it really is and always was... a day to bring out the good. A day to honor the forces of goodness, love, light, hope and happiness. Dress your kid up as something or someone good.
Lastly don't give The Enemy control of the day. Don't let him make it a sham or tool of evil... Use It As A Witness For The Lord.
The enemy has turned the tables and made this a day to worship and fear the many less than noble entities... like... Ghouls, Goblins etc.
OK... Great ... We Get It!
All Is Fair in Love and War and There Can Be No Greater Battle than this Battle for Love and Truth For The Souls of Men! So Let Us Not Shrink From Our Calling... Let Us Join The Fight! Let Us Each Do What We Can! May We Each One... Reach One!
Let us realize how it sits and turn things back to the light. Make This A Day Of Praise & Prayer & Thanksgiving For Those Godly Souls Who Have Gone On Before Us. Let's Make It A Witness In Whatever Way We Can.
When kids come... don't be sour and condescending... Be kind and loving and give them a treat (Hopefully not something that will rot their teeth)...and if possible somehow also give them a witness and lift them to the Lord and His Love. It's a Great Chance to Get Out The Message. Be Positive... Be The Coolest Thing On The Block. Show 'em So Much Love... That They Will Never Forget!
Twas The Night Before Halloween
And All Thru The Town
Not A Goblin Was Stirring
Nor A Witch With A Frown
And Up By The Chimney
What Did I Behold
But Some Cool Bible Tracks
And A Cross Made Of Gold
There Were Candies & Cookies
And Treats For All There
Each Mixed With A Message
Of God’s Love, Hope & Care
It's one thing to say, "wow, ya that's right" and another to actually do something. More often than not, folks get intimidated into thinking this is just something we need to let pass. Problem is though… when folks do that on a mass level… then you leave the field open for the more aggressive forces who, at best, don't believe in God or at Worst... Really Want To Make The Day A Celebration Of Fear & Evil.
Don't Be Intimidated… Don't Be Bullied… What You Do... Really Counts. You are only one, but a light set upon a hill cannot be hid. Make Your Voice Be Heard. Call it Jesus Ween… Call It What You Want, BUT... Give Those Kids Something Positive, Godly & Good!
Call It... Halloween
Or... Jesus Ween ...
But Whatever You Call It
Folks Should Know...
It's About The Good & Godly...
& Not About The Cruel & Mean
