Do Not Commit Adultery

Watch this 5 minute video from Prager University about why adultery is so devastating to the family unit and our society.

Why do the Ten Commandments single out adultery as particularly harmful? Because adultery can destroy the foundational unit of a society — the family. If exposed, adultery leads to sense of betrayal. If hidden, it forces the offending spouse to lie. Children are often the unintended victims. This may be one of the most difficult Biblical laws to follow, but it’s also one of the most important.

Indescribable

milky-way-galaxyChris Tomlin (Live)

From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea
Creation revealing Your majesty
From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring
Every creature unique in the song that it sings
All exclaiming

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God

Who has told every lightning bolt where it should go
Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow
Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light
Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night
None can fathom

Indescribable, uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name
You are amazing God
All powerful, untameable,
Awestruck we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God
You are amazing God

Incomprable, unchangeable,
You see the depths of my heart and you love me the same
You are amazing God
You are amazing God

Should Christians celebrate Halloween?

Should Christians Celebrate Halloween

The short answer is, “No. Absolutely not.”

Some may also ask, “Is it okay to host an alternative celebration in our church where our children can dress up in biblical costumes, pass out candy, and have some wholesome fun?” Yes, of course, but don’t do it on October 31st. There are 364 other days of the year where churches can have such an event without dishonoring God.

Do not follow pagan practices or customs

In numerous biblical passages, God prohibited the Istaelites from following the practices, customs and holidays of the pagan nations that surrounded them. These Old Testament prohibitions still apply to us today as Christians. For example, In Leviticus 18:1-5, the LORD God said:

“Speak to the Israelites and tell them: I am Yahweh your God. Do not follow the practices of the land of Egypt, where you used to live, or follow the practices of the land of Canaan, where I am bringing you. You must not follow their customs. You are to practice My ordinances and you are to keep My statutes by following them; I am Yahweh your God. Keep My statutes and ordinances; a person will live if he does them. I am Yahweh.”

And in Jeremiah 10:1-2, the LORD also says regarding the pagan holidays and customs, “O house of Israel. Thus says the Lord: ‘Learn not the way of the nations…for the customs of the peoples are vanity.”

What did Jesus teach?

Our Lord didn’t mince any words when it came to reproving those who were breaking God’s commandments. On one ocassion, he rebuked the religious leaders for their hipocrisy. Not only were these leaders cowering to the people’s desire to observe traditions that violated God’s laws, but they were teaching that it was proper to do so.

In Matthew 15:3 Jesus said to them:

“And why do you break the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition?”

Today, I’m sure Christ would say the same thing to many Christian pastors who do likewise. I know of many church pastors who recognize the dangers of celebrating Halloween, yet they keep silent for fear of offending their congregation. The practice of celebrating Halloween is so ingrained in our American culture that many worldly Christians have a fit of outrage when you speak against it. They justify their actions with a host of excuses such as, “I’m not going keep my children from having some harmless fun! After all, we’re not worshiping the devil, we’re worshiping God.”

Oh, really? You think its just harmless fun? I’m sure you also think playing with a Quija Board¹ and communicating with dead spirits in a séance² ceremony is harmless fun too! Oh, foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you that you should not obey the truth and taught you to believe such devilish lies? (Galatians 3:1)

The history of Halloween

Halloween, also known as All Hallows Eve, is a pagan holiday that dates back to the Celtic festivals in Ireland, known as Samhain. It was supposedly Christianized as “Halloween” by the Roman Catholic Church in order to convert the pagans who revered the October 31st festival for centuries.

The superstitious Celts believed that Samhain was a time when the boundary between this world and the world of the dead thinned, and departed spirits and fairies could come into our world and were particularly active. It was their custom to light candles at night for the dead and offer them food and drink to appease them.

Festivities on this night included spiritualist rituals, dressing in costume, wearing masks, games, foretelling the future, and dancing before bonfires whose smoke and ashes were deemed to have protective and cleansing powers. Witches and satanists today also dance naked before these bonfires, participate in sexual orgies, conjure up demons, cast evil spells, and sacrifice animals and even humans on Halloween night. It is their most sacred day of the year where all all manner of evil is practiced in the name of satan.

Have no fellowship with darkness

As you might conclude, there is nothing “holy” about Halloween, and Christians should not celebrate this day in any way. The Bible tells us:

“Have no fellowship with the worthless deeds of evil and darkness; instead, expose them…But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light. But all things being exposed by the light are made evident.” – Ephesians 5:11-13

Instead of trying to “Christianize” an evil holiday like Halloween, believers should expose it for what it really is – a festival of demonic origin. Christian parents, especially, should teach their children to avoid any form of participation in Halloween – in school or among their friends. This will not be a very popular stand to take. Expect to be criticized and evil spoken of. But remember that Jesus said: “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven…” – Matthew 5:11-12

When we follow the way of truth instead of the world’s system and refuse to compromise our religious beliefs, we can expect to be persecuted and suffer for Christ. Yet, let us not be discouraged, for we know that our reward will be great in the future world to come. Even in the midst of trials and suffering, continue to let your light shine in the midst of all the darkness that surrounds you.

In conclusion, Halloween is a Satanic high holy day. The best way to avoid any form of participation is to treat October 31st as just another ordinary day of the week and refuse to give it any special significance. If Trick or Treaters come to your door, be nice, and simply say, “I’m sorry, but we don’t celebrate Halloween. We’re Bible-believing Christians. Have a nice day.” Or, “Here’s a gospel tract. Can I tell you about Jesus Christ?”

2. A séance is a meeting where various people sit quietly and attempt to communicate with the spirits of the dead. Generally, a medium (witch) will lead the meeting in a darkened room and become the channel whereby the spirits will speak through.

Marisas Pumpkin
Marisa’s pumpkin that she later smashed.

Comment from Marisa:

I carved this pumpkin thinking we could participate in Halloween by honoring Yahweh instead of giving the enemy any glory, but that was pride. What I actually did was sacrilegious. God tried to tell me not to do it, but I wanted to curse that devil and mock him.

Based on research that I’ve done, the carving of gourds came from pagan traditions from those looking to ward off evil spirits during a celebration at the end of summer called, Samhain. These pagans didn’t realize they were giving power to the devil to oprress their lives by trusting in an idol for protection, instead of seeking God our Maker above all things. Only He can protect us, not some hand-carved idol in the form of a pumpkin.

May God forgive me for such pride & foolishness! God forgive me for dabbling in the devils deceptions.

Demonic activity increased in my house after I carved this pumpkin and I took this picture. There was an orb moving towards it. I later went outside, smashed the pumpkin and repented of my sin. I also confessed my foolishness to my 4 year old son this morning. At first he was mad at me for smashing his pumpkin. Rightly so. Mom fail. But later he understood. He is so forgiving and precious. Please lift us up in prayer.

Is the Gospel Good News or Bad News?

Do Not Fear I Am With YouThere are some preachers and televangelists today who are deliberately instilling fear in the body of Christ with their prophecies of financial collapse, famines, and worldwide catastrophes in order to sell survival food, equipment, and other doomsday supplies and resources. Beware of these ministries! Do not believe their false prophecies or be influenced by their survivalist mindset. This is not the message that Christ called us to preach; they are distorting the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

Fear Not, Jesus Is Near

The message God wants us to preach is not one of negativism, fear, or coming calamity, but of God’s GOOD NEWS. That’s what the word GOSPEL means in the original Greek of the New Testament. It is the good news that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but receive everlasting life (John 3:16).

Graphic 6_jpgAs Christians, our mission is to preach the good news to all the world that God loves them and has provided a way for every person to be forgiven of their sins, be saved, and find peace and fulfillment for their lives – if they will turn back to Him.

All the unrest and suffering in the world today is the result of man’s doing. And yes, the world will continually become more turbulent everyday, as the Bible predicts, but let not your heart be troubled. And yes, tribulations on the world scene will progress from bad to worse (which Christ called, the “birth pangs”) until Jesus Christ returns and establishes His earthly kingdom, and rights everything that is wrong with the world today. But preaching doom and gloom should not be the focus of our gospel message.

Repent, for the end is near? Maybe.

How often have we seen well-meaning street evangelists holding up signs that read “The End is near!” created to instill fear and stereotype Christians as a bunch of religious lunatics? Is this the true gospel? How about the ones that say, “God hates fags!” Does God really hate gays and lesbians? Of course not! God loves everyone alike.

The message of God to man is one of mercy and hope – if they will humble themselves, turn from their wicked ways, and seek Him with all their hearts. God is ready to forgive and to heal, to be merciful and not condemn, for He is a God of love and wishes that none should perish.

The true gospel of Jesus Christ is a gospel message of kindness and compassion, and not condemnation; a message of peace and blessing for everyone that believes.

We don’t have to worry about storing dehydrated meals or how many servings we can get from food that we’ve squirreled away so we can live a little bit longer after some kind of apocalypse. As Christians we need to trust that God always has us in the palm of His hands. We have a future with Him in Christ Jesus, and we don’t have to be anxious about tomorrow. Jesus wants us to lie down at night in peace and safety, and trust Him for our every need.

“In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, LORD, make me dwell in safety.” – Psalm 4:8

“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” – Matthew 6:25-26

We are God’s messengers and ambassadors for Christ. Let us be faithful to proclaim life, and not death, hope and not pessimism. Let us joyfully declare that the kingdom of God is near, behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation. That is the true message of the gospel, and it is good news indeed!

“Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
