There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
This month begins the traditional celebration of Hallows Eve. The time where children and parents alike dress up in costumes and throw parties and trick or treat.
As children of the Most High, , we must prepare our children and our homes for unwanted displeasure towards our choices against celebrating such a pagan day.
The reason I am posting this today is because my youngest daughter’s best friend asked her to be her trick or treat partner this year. This child’s parents only want my daughter to be with their daughter that evening as they trust her. Yet, this child knows we do not celebrate such things. The memory disappears when “fun” is involved.
I would guess many of you have young children. Many whom are surrounded by children who absolutely love this particular day of the year. Therefore, I am also certain that your children will be bombarded with much questioning as to why they won’t dress up, go trick or treating or even go to a house party filled with ghosts and goblins. (Assuming Halloween is not celebrated in your household) Thus causing your child or children to feel the odd one out, made fun of and much more.
This is where parenting can become a struggle. For certainly we know how children can question authority, especially when it comes to something everyone else is having fun doing.
If ye were of the world,
the world would love his own:
but because ye are not of the world,
but I have chosen you out of the world,
therefore the world hateth you.
Notice the picture above. Notice the little girls expression. How she glares at the camera with an evil sneer. Now really pay attention to what she is doing. If your child looked at you like this on any other day, there would be some concern as to why such a face. Why such a demeanor. Yet, for millions of parents who allow their children to join in the festivities of this day, it is considered cute and funny. I ask each reader to truly ponder upon what I am trying to say here.
Many understand the spiritual battlefield and war that is happening around us. Many grasp that something can take over a person in an instant and leave either willingly or unwillingly. Some struggle their entire lives with intense demonic wars in their lives. So I ask each parent…Why would we invite anything into our own children? As the saying goes….Never invite a vampire into your home.
Each time we allow our children to pass through the stronghold of the enemy of souls, doors are opened. Doors that can effect them through their lives if they are unaware of the spiritual consequences.
In honesty, most of us have grown up celebrating this un-holy day. Surely many of us can claim it was our favorite day of the year. And most certainly, once one became close to our Heavenly Father and eyes were opened to the evils that can destroy us, each had to struggle with letting particular traditions go. Not because it wasn’t easy to make the decision. No, it was because those surrounding attacked full fledged. Questioning “Why don’t you do this? What about the children? Other children will make fun of them. Do you want that?”
Oh I am sure those of you whom have stopped all holidays in your households
have heard quite a few obnoxious statements thrown at you. I know in our household we have.
There shall not be found among you
any one that maketh his son or his daughter
to pass through the fire,
or that useth divination,
or an observer of times,
or an enchanter, or a witch.
Or a charmer,
or a consulter with familiar spirits,
or a wizard, or a necromancer.
For all that do these things are an abomination unto :
and because of these abominations
thy Elohim doth drive them out from before thee.
Thou shalt be perfect with thy Elohim.
For these nations, which thou shalt possess,
hearkened unto observers of times,
and unto diviners:
but as for thee,
thy Elohim hath not suffered thee so to do.
If you take the time to watch the video below, it may help with responses as to why your family chooses not to celebrate such a day. Share it with your children. Each year since my family arrived back in the USA, I have sat with them to show them research and videos along with scripture. They spent most of their lives away from this day. Now that we are back, it has become quite the challenge to keep them free from the peer pressures of Halloween.
It is not in innocent fun as most like to claim. The deceiver of souls embarks yearly to capture and intrigue the most innocent. I pray your house is kept peaceful during this season.
