The Christian’s War isn’t with Flesh and Blood, but with Spiritual Higher Powers and Principalities.
At this time in Saint Charles Missouri, the majority of people are eagerly anticipating the celebration of Halloween.
Every year it seems that the celebration is becoming larger and larger. Every store has huge amounts of Halloween stuff for sale, and most restaurants and other public buildings have elaborate Halloween displays and decorations.
Many people spend hundreds, and some, thousands of dollars for Halloween displays.
What is Halloween really about?
Most would say it’s just a fun time to give out candy, and dress up in costumes.
In reality, it is a celebration of the DEVIL, Satan the Demon Spirit, and everything that is against God.
On October 31, in ancient times, people believed that the souls of the dead revisited their homes. In some cultures, huge bonfires were set on hilltops to frighten away evil spirits.
All kinds of demons were said to be roaming around.
Halloween was the only day on which people sought the help of the devil to divine information concerning marriage, health, and death.
According to Webster’s College Dictionary 4th Edition, the definition of “ghost” is ‘FOLKLORE’ – a dead person’s disembodied spirit, especially when thought of as appearing to the living as a pale shadowy apparition.
So “ghosts” are not real, as most people think of ghosts.
The definition of folklore is a legend, unwritten beliefs, or sayings of a culture.
But demons are real! Demons are evil spirits.
In the New Testament of the Protestant Christian Bible, there are many instances of Jesus casting (demons) evil spirits out of people.
When one looks at Halloween decorations, what do you see?
Everything is demonic!
So-called “ghosts”, witches, black cats, spiders, everything is about scariness, darkness, etc.
Jesus is The Light of the World.
He came into the world to deliver everyone from the Darkness.
Satan is the Prince of Darkness, the Head Demon, having power over all who have NOT been spiritually born again through faith in Jesus Christ, the SAVIOR OF THE WORLD.
Jesus is the Son of God, the ONLY WAY TO HEAVEN.
All other religions are false.
You WILL go to Hell, unless you choose Salvation through Jesus.
This means you must repent. To repent is to surrender your heart and will to God, giving up your control of your life, to follow the teachings of Jesus and the Apostles and evangelists in the Protestant Christian Bible New Testament.
This surrender of the heart and will brings an inward transformation by the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Trinity (God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit).
This surrender frees one from the Power of Darkness.
This surrender delivers one from Original Sin, which took place in the Garden of Eden, by Adam and Eve, and was passed on to all mankind. When you make this decision, Jesus forgives all your sins, and you can have peace in your heart, no matter what you have done in the past.
From that point on , you must live a NEW LIFE.
The Protestant Christian Bible New Testament says that when you are spiritually born-again, you are a New Creation, in Christ Jesus.
CHOOSE LIFE, SALVATION, AND ETERNITY IN HEAVEN, OR YOU WILL END UP IN THE ETERNAL DARKNESS OF HELL!
