It’s not surprising that I say that Halloween is a time where evil is worshiped, paraded and accepted. Where Christian’s dress their children up like witches and say “but they are so cute.” Imagine that. A Christian who thinks that what God calls an abomination is good or cute or acceptable.
We have a culture that pushes Satan and his agenda on us from every way they can and more and more it is accepted. We have movies, television shows and books that claim to have a Christian undertone that lift up evil and promote sorcery and witchcraft.
Occult symbols are found so often on things that we no longer pay attention to them. Symbols of pagan worship in coloring books, on t-shirts, artwork and children’s toys.
Just to let you know there is no such thing as a good witch. No acceptable witch, no good magic, no acceptable pagan worship and no point where we should think it ok to be entertained by such an abomination or think that the promotion of such is no big deal.
There are no Christian witches and anything that glorifies magic, sorcery or witchcraft would not be ok with God? How can I be so sure? Just look at scripture.
““When you enter the land which the Lord your God gives you, you shall not learn to imitate the detestable things of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who casts a spell, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord; and because of these detestable things the Lord your God will drive them out before you. You shall be blameless before the Lord your God. For those nations, which you shall dispossess, listen to those who practice witchcraft and to diviners, but as for you, the Lord your God has not allowed you to do so.”
Yes, I understand that this is the Old Testament under the Law, but we can learn so much from The Old Testament on what is pleasing to God and what he says is an abomination. It was all written for us to glean from. If we want to be followers of Christ that means, we should know what he deems acceptable and want to listen and follow what he says about it. He doesn’t change therefore what he deems acceptable doesn’t change.
“Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore do not be partakers with them; for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them; for it is disgraceful even to speak of the things which are done by them in secret. But all things become visible when they are exposed by the light, for everything that becomes visible is light. For this reason it says, “Awake, sleeper, And arise from the dead, And Christ will shine on you.” Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.”
We are not to have anything to do with darkness and that includes the darkness that comes with Halloween. You would have to live under a rock to not see the evil being paraded around and worshiped on that day and for us to partake in celebrating what exactly are we celebrating?
Let’s throw out the argument of where it came from for a minute and just look at what the day holds dear. There is no end to the demonic imagery and ideation on that day. It’s all about what is dark, and scary. Anything twisted and taboo.
“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”
We know that we are to dwell on the things that are good and true and pure. we also know that we are not to call evil good and good evil. We aren’t to pervert the two, but we are to live and stand on truth as Christians no matter what day it is.
Disney to no one’s surprise has no end of love for this so-called holiday they entertain with witchcraft, magic and sorcery in their movies, tv shows and books that they put out for little kids.
These are all meant to make light of darkness. Meant to soften and make acceptable what at one time most deemed evil. Over time people have been desensitized to this evil and welcomed it with open arms as something fun and entertaining for all ages. Look at where that has gotten us as a society.
The rise in the occult in recent years is astounding. The people who profess to be witches or satanists is growing at a steady rate and people professing to be Christians has significantly dropped. Especially those who read their bibles and at least attempt to live a godly lifestyle.
This is from the FAQs page on the church of Satan’s website.
What is interesting is that they get it better than so many Christians. People playing with darkness. People dabbling in and showing a part of them that they normally keep hidden. we all have things that we struggle with. things that aren’t God honoring. We all have pet sins that we fight against, but this isn’t that. This is an open celebration of it.
Is there not a point where we need to look at what is being celebrated and ponder what God thinks about it? Isn’t that we are to do with our entire beings as Christians?
Disney is only one example of the degradation being pandered to kids which is absolutely bolstering this disgustingly vile day called Halloween and the things that it worships. Though it is a huge example for sure.
They make cartoons like “The Owl House.” The Wikipedia page for this show explains the plot as,
“Luz is a self-assured teenage human girl who accidentally stumbles upon a portal to another world. When on the Boiling Isle which is made from the remains of a dead Titan, she befriends the rebellious witch Eda and an adorably tiny warrior named King. Despite not having magical abilities and having to pose as a witch due to the prejudice towards humans, Luz pursues her dream of becoming a witch by serving as Eda’s apprentice at the Owl House and ultimately finds a new family in an unlikely setting.”
Fxx a Disney owned company came out with an adult cartoon titled “little demon” to which the synopsis is,
13 years after being impregnated by Satan, Laura and her Antichrist daughter, Chrissy, attempt to live an ordinary life in Delaware, but are constantly overwhelmed by monstrous forces, including Satan, who wants custody of Chrissy’s soul.
This is what our society says is acceptable and people including many Christians go along with it and bring it into their homes for entertainment. They say its harmless, but it isn’t. all of these things work together to disarm our discernment and teach our children to have a warped view of what is acceptable. It teaches them that we can call ourselves Christians and disregard what God has said in his word. That we can choose for ourselves what we feel is good and acceptable and at the same time lift our dirty hands to him as if they are clean. That we can dabble with darkness and still say we follow God.
It desensitizes us. It sears our conscience and switches off our discernment of the evil in the world. We then accept and tolerate more and more evil. Just look at the world we live in. It didn’t happen by accident. It didn’t happen overnight either. It crept in, one thing being accepted at a time. Evil being normalized.
Disney is high on my list of reasons that Witchcraft is so readily accepted into most households these days. They pander to kids and adults alike, training them up from youth to accept Satan’s agenda.
They have made cartoons for little kids like Sophia the first a show about a little girl with an amulet that either blesses or curses her depending on her actions. It is full of witchcraft and magic all made to look fun and good and pleasing. All masked with “life lessons” that look true.
Another movie they came out with is called “Hocus Pocus” to which there is now a sequel. Because you know evil sells.
Hocus Pocus 2 is all about three witches banished from Salem who find a “Mother Witch” who gives them a spell book with a spell that makes them all powerful. She teaches them to kill other Children so they can keep their youthfulness.
Years later after they had been “killed” they were resurrected by two virgins who used a magic candle to unknowingly resurrect them.
The Witches try to kill the girls but in the end the girls start their own coven. They take the spell book and on goes the cycle of the Witches.
The movie takes place on Halloween and throughout it is occult imagery, the all-seeing eye and references to Satan such as “have fun with Satan.” These movies are built on Satan being the Witches master. Winifred “Sold her soul to Satan for the magic book.”
There is a scene where The Witches come across a man dressed as Satan and call him master thinking that it is Satan himself. They don’t try to hide the Satanic overarching theme. This is made to take that which is evil and make it acceptable to not only you but your children. It is training your children up in the way they should go and that is Satanism.
My mom sent my kids some stuff for needle work. Like old school patterns and such for embroidery. My mom who is like I am on this subject was appalled when I told her that upon opening the box, I found a promotion for this movie with “stickers” for my kids. She didn’t purchase or approve that it just came with the order from what would seem like an innocent source. One of them said “By the pricking of my thumb something wicked this way comes.”
This book I found at Target and had to snap some pictures. This is in the kid’s section. A Disney book with the Disney logo front and center.
I really pondered blocking out a lot of the text. I have been praying about it but in the end, I think it is important for y’all to see what is being pandered to our children. Though the “spells” I just couldn’t leave. Who still wants to support Disney? This is the same people who give us mickey and goofy.
Remember that the “Master” in this book is Satan.
Teaching kids how to partake in occult practices, exactly how to make an alter…… wonder how many kids then “play witchcraft” after that?
They have to include how to call on the dead… Cause why not? This is what is pushed for Halloween. Or “The Day Of The Dead.” This is what is normalized in everyday now. We see it more and more in the world and stuff like this is why.
the bottom of this where it says I wonder if this spell doth work on hearts is so telling isn’t it?
Halloween is just another way for Satan to be glorified. It doesn’t matter where you think it came from or if it started good, when you celebrate Halloween, this is what you are partaking in. This is what your kids are seeing as acceptable. It teaches their discernment to not see a problem with these things. Teaches their conscience not to sound an alarm when they see the Occult symbols, imagery and ideologies.
“But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, That shines brighter and brighter until the full day. The way of the wicked is like darkness; They do not know over what they stumble. My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight; Keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them And health to all their body. Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth And put devious speech far from you. Let your eyes look directly ahead And let your gaze be fixed straight in front of you. Watch the path of your feet And all your ways will be established. Do not turn to the right nor to the left; Turn your foot from evil.”
Guard your heart because it effects everything you do. From it flow the wellsprings of life.
We are to abstain from, reject every form or even the appearance of Evil.
“abstain from every form of evil.”
1 Thessalonians 5:22
“reject every kind of evil.”
1 Thessalonians 5:22 NIV
“Abstain from all appearance of evil.”
1 Thessalonians 5:22 KJV
I love the Amplified translation it says
“Abstain from every form of evil [withdraw and keep away from it].”
1 Thessalonians 5:22 AMP
and goes on to say,
“Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [that is, separate you from profane and vulgar things, make you pure and whole and undamaged—consecrated to Him—set apart for His purpose]; and may your spirit and soul and body be kept complete and [be found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
1 Thessalonians 5:23 AMP
We are to not participate in evil, condone it or look like it. We are to purify ourselves for the coming of the Lord. This isn’t a legalistic idea of earning anything, this is an obedient child doing what pleases their Father and Savior. We need to go back to caring about doing what pleases God and also being separate from the world’s darkness.
We are to be Holy or set apart. Being in the world but not of the world.
If you want to see what I think about the Origins of Halloween, you can check out my Podcast or YouTube channel where I have a video on the origins. Regardless of where you think it comes from, I think we should all take a long look at what it is now and what it is teaching our children.
Until Next Time,
