HALLOWEEN – A MATTER OF LIFE OR DEATH
Cynthia Pawl October 31, 2015
What are you celebrating?
During the month of October, it seems the entire nation goes insane and outrageously giddy about the celebration of DEATH. Yes, that is what HALLOWEEN is all about. I know folks like to believe that it is really just about fun for the kiddies. Seriously? Have you really taken a step back and looked at what this “Holiday” has become?
It gets more and more hideous every year. Certainly, one has to recognize that it is not just about the “kiddies” having fun. Parents don’t even feel safe letting their kids run through the neighborhoods anymore. This is a very dangerous time for little ones. No, it is not the children decorating the yards with graveyards, dead bodies, witches with caldrons, ghosts, ghouls and vampires. It is not the children spending thousands and thousands of dollars preparing for this night of terror. It is not the children making thousands and thousands of dollars on Haunted House attractions. Tell me, do you seriously believe it is constructive for adults to plot, plan and devise ways to frighten kids to death?
This is a time when people celebrate rebellion and death. This is the Devil’s night. Witches, Wiccans, Wizards, Voodoo Practitioners, Satanists, Illuminists, and anyone else who is seeking their power from demonic sources, MUST SACRIFICE on or around this night. PEOPLE AND ANIMALS ARE BEING TERRORIZED, TORTURED, DRAINED OF BLOOD AND SACRIFICED, while folks are frolicking and rejoicing like it is a party.
I know, most people don’t think about these things. They think that just because they do not think about it, they are somehow separated from those activities/beliefs/practices. WAKE UP! Whether you are knowingly or unknowingly participating in this celebration of DEATH, you are in it. You are part of it. YOU ARE GUILTY by ASSOCIATION. The blood is on your hands. You may not understand or accept this fact. However, Satan and his demons know it to be true. The Devil and his minyons are energy vampires. When you participate, you allow them to draw energy from you. You are empowering them. You are giving power and form to whatever magick they are working, whatever spells they are casting, whatever demonic forces they are raising. You are actually contributing to your own demise, while Satan and his demons laugh. That is why evil is growing. Every year it gets worse and worse. Not just this holiday, but ALL EVIL is growing by leaps and bounds.
DEATH IS THE ENEMY.
Hebrews 2:14-15 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.
From this scripture we see that God’s word says currently:
2. people are in slavery by the fear of death
FROM WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BE SAVED?
People often ask, why they need a savior. From what do they need saving? When Adam and Eve were in the garden and they CHOSE to believe the Devil and rebel against God, SIN came into the world and man’s nature was changed. We became susceptible to his own sinful lusts, to all manner of dangers and evil without God’s protection, and worst of all to DEATH. That is why we need a SAVIOUR/REDEEMER. Without the shed blood of Jesus Christ/Yeshua Ha-Mashiach, we are doomed.
Satan has blinded the world to the TRUTH. He has sold us a bill of goods. He has convinced the world that there is no God. That even if there is a God, he is just a mean old man who wants to keep you from enjoying yourself. He has convinced humankind that they can become GODS. He has convinced us that those old Laws are just made up religion and we can cast them off and revel in our nakedness.
Don’t buy they lie. The lie is all Satan has to use against us. As long as we go along with his agenda, wittingly or unwittingly. He has won and owns our soul.
A WAY OF ESCAPE
GOD is very wise, loving, forgiving, and compassionate. He provided an answer to mankind’s dilemma. He took on flesh and bore the punishment for all mankind. He made a way of escape. If we will harken to His voice (The Voice of Truth), and obey. He will cover us, through the power of His shed blood, and redeem us to Himself.
Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.
Hosea 13:14 I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes.
Luke 20:36 Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.
2 Timothy 1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
Hebrews 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
Revelation 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.John 12:31 Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out.
Romans 8:3 For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in the flesh,
1 Corinthians 15:54 When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”
1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Timothy 1:10 but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.
Hebrews 2:17 For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.
1 John 3:8 The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.
Choose You This Day – LIFE or DEATH.
The Devil has nothing to offer you but death and destruction. Oh, he can give you power and riches, in this world. But the end thereof is pain and death. Anything that you receive from Satan or his demons, comes with a price. If you dance to the music, you have to pay to the Piper. The ultimate Piper is Satan. He is the real Peter Pan/Pied Piper/Satyr. His price is weightier than you can afford.
Yet, the Creator God, Our Loving Heavenly Father, can offer you joy and all that you need in this world. Even more than that, he can offer you a wonderful, joyful eternity, surrounded by your loved ones, where there will be no more pain or sorrow. Sin will be no more. Death will be defeated. Disease and decay will no longer exist. Hallelujah!
Deuteronomy 30:15-19 & 19 “See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. 16 For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess….19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live 20 and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”
Jesus Christ/Yeshua Ha-Mashiach is LIFE! He came that we may have Life and Life more abundantly! NOW THAT IS SOMETHING WORTH CELEBRATING!
