We are inundated with Halloween in the stores, in schools, and in the news media. It is the 2nd largest commercial holiday. And, it is a sign of the Christian Church’s apostasy. Since Halloween is a Druid celebration, it is not directly mentioned in the Bible, but its concepts are certainly mentioned and warned against. Bibleinfo.com has this say about the holiday –
“The origin of Halloween as we know it, began over 1900 years ago in England, Ireland, and Northern France. It was a Celtic celebration of the new year, called Samhain which occurred on November 1. The Celtic druids revered it as the biggest holiday of the year and emphasized that day as the time when the souls of the dead supposedly could mingle with the living. Bonfires were a large aspect of this holiday as well.
Another tradition is the druid belief that during the night of November 1, demons, witches, and evil spirits freely roamed the earth with joy to greet the arrival of “their season”—the long nights and early dark of the winter months. The demons had their fun with poor mortals that night, frightening, harming, and even playing all kinds of mean tricks on them. The only way, it seemed, for scared humans to escape the persecution of the demons was to offer them things they liked, especially fancy foods and sweets. Or, in order to escape the fury of these horrible creatures, a human could disguise himself as one of them and join in their roaming. In this way, they would recognize the human as a demon or witch and the human would not be bothered that night.”

It is time to return to the Gospel of the Kingdom and the preaching of the Cross of Jesus. The pressure to forsake this message or water it down is just a sign of the lateness of the hour.
