A Bible Believer Asks Should Christians Be Celebrating Halloween?

When Christians participate in Halloween we are continuing the Druid tradition that was begun in human sacrifices and worship of the gods of the underworld.

The cute jack-o-lanterns on your front porch were first used by the Druids in their human sacrifices.

“And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.” Ephesians 5:11,12 (KJV)

The Bible says that the Christian is called to liberty, that we are under grace and not under the Law. New life in Jesus Christ has given us freedom to live as we choose to live. But with that freedom comes the awesome responsibility of living our lives in such a way that we are prepared for the Judgment Seat of Christ. Good choices, Godly choices made here on earth will reap crowns in Heaven. But using that same liberty as an occasion for our own selfish desires results in the loss of those crowns. Choose you this day whom ye shall serve, the Bible says. God allows us to make the choices.

All through the Bible we read about Satan, the Devil, whose only goal in life is to trip us up, cause us misery and sorrow. The Bible says that he only comes to seek his victims, kill his victims, and destroy as many lives of the saved and unsaved as possible. He is a constant force luring us astray, and never-ending downward pull to the dark side, and he uses any means possible to complete the mission.

HALLOWEEN IN AMERICA IN 2015 IS ONE THE MOST-CELEBRATED “HOLIDAYS” ALL YEAR, AND CHRISTIANS PARTICIPATE IN IT NEARLY AS MUCH AS ANY OTHER GROUP OF PEOPLE. PARENTS DRESS THEIR LITTLE DARLINGS IN PRINCESS AND COWBOY COSTUMES, KNOCK ON DOORS FOR CANDY, AND DECORATE THE INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF THEIR HOUSES WITH FESTIVE JACK-O-LANTERNS, HANGING GHOSTS, ADORABLE WITCHES AND WARLOCKS. BUT WHERE DID THIS DAY ORIGINATE? LET’S TAKE A LOOK.

Many Christians celebrate holidays, such as Halloweenwithout thinking about their origins or true meaning. It is impossible to separate Halloween from the Druids because they originated the “holiday.” For several hundred years before Christ, the Celts inhabited what is now France, Germany, England, Scotland and Ireland. Celtic priests were called Druids. These people were eventually conquered by the Romans. Information about the Celts and Druids comes from Caesar and the Roman historians, Greek writings from about 200 B.C., and very early records found in Ireland. Greek and Roman writings about the Druids dwell heavily on their frequent and barbaric human sacrifices. The ancient Irish texts say little about human sacrifices, but detail the Druids’ use of magic to raise storms, lay curses on places, kill by the use of spells, and create magical obstacles.

The cute jack-o-lanterns on your front porch were first used by the Druids in their human sacrifices. After they killed their victim, they drained the fat from their body and filled the gourd or pumpkin with it and put a candle wick inside. A sinister face was carved on the outside face of the pumpkin and the wick was lit, burning the fat as fuel. This was done to appease their gods, the dark spirits, Satan.

October 31st was celebrated by the Druids with many human sacrifices and a festival honoring their sun god and Samhain, the lord of the dead. They believed that the sinful souls of those who died during the year were in a place of torment, and would be released only if Samhain was pleased with their sacrifices.

Irish records tell of the fascination the Catholic monks had with the powerful Druids, and Druids soon became important members of their monasteries. Pope Gregory the Great decided to incorporate the Druids’ holiday into the church. He made the proclamation, “They are no longer to sacrifice beasts to the devil, but they may kill them for food to the praise of God, and give thanks to the giver of all gifts for His bounty.” Pope Gregory III moved the church festival of October 31st to November 1st and called it All Hallows or All Saints’ Day. Pope Gregory IV decreed that the day was to be a universal church observance. The term Halloween comes from All Hallows Eve.

The founding fathers of America refused to permit the holiday to be observed because they knew it was a pagan holiday. Halloween was not widely celebrated in the U.S. until about 1900. In the 1840’s there was a terrible potato famine in Ireland which sent thousands of Catholic Irish to America. They brought Halloween with them. The modern custom of going from door to door asking for food and candy goes back to the time of the Druids. They believed that sinful, lost souls were released upon the earth by Samhain for one night on October 31st while they awaited their judgment. They were thought to throng about the houses of the living and were greeted with banquet-laden tables. People greatly feared these spirits and thought that the spirits would harm and even kill them if the sacrifices they gave did not appease Samhain. They carved demonic faces into pumpkins or large turnips, placing a candle in them to keep the evil spirits away from their homes.

The tradition of bobbing for apples and giving out nuts came from a Roman addition to the Druidic New Year’s eve. The Romans worshiped Pomona who was the goddess of the harvest. They combined their harvest festival to Pomona with Halloween. Very little archeological evidence of the Druids has been found, but there is excellent agreement between the Roman and Irish documents. Both clearly state that the knowledge of the Druids was never committed to writing but passed from generation to generation by oral teaching. This was to protect their secrets. Nothing is put into writing. The Druids continue on secretly with much the same traditions.

When we, the Christians, participate in Halloween we are continuing the Druid tradition that was begun in human sacrifices and worship of the gods of the underworld. The Bible tells us to not merely avoid evil, but to also avoid anything that might appear evil. We are called to be “salt and light” to a lost and dying world. We are called to be a “peculiar people”, visibly different from the world around us. Participating in the Devil’s holiday, at the very least, is a bad testimony and sends confusing messages to our children.

Use your liberty in Christ any way you chose this October 31st, just remember that one day Jesus will ask you about it at the Judgment Seat.

What answer will you give Him in that day?

High School Football Players Are Being Raped And Sodomized By Their Fellow Teammates As Liberal Public Schools Devolve Into Dystopian Horror Movie

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Can you imagine high school football players being raped and sodomized by their teammates, what type of world has this become?

Someone had told me a few weeks ago the story of how a high school football player was raped in the back of the bus on the ride home from the ‘big game’, and the two coaches on the bus as well as the bus driver did nothing to stop it. How could that be, I wondered, that just didn’t seem possible. So today I googled it and what came back was not the one story I was looking for, but many articles on how high school football players all across America are being sexually assaulted by their male teammates.

“But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.” Genesis 19:4,5 (KJB)

As we talked about on our Podcast yesterday, the world we now live in is preparing itself for the soon arrival of Antichrist, and because of that, his 7-year short-lived kingdom is now being prepared to receive him. When I was in high school in the late 1970’s, we had rowdy kids on our championship, undefeated football team, and quite often not a few of those players would get in trouble. But no one was being sexually assaulted by these boys, and certainly not homosexually assaulted which is beyond imagination, and quite demonic. All this brings me to my point.

If you are over the age of 50, the world you were born into has ceased to exist, in its place has risen up the spirit of Antichrist which is infecting every part of our society. Teenagers are being chemically castrated with the blessing of governments, doctors no longer take an oath to “do no harm” as Nazi-era medical experiments have been sanctioned by America’s elite hospitals. Boys are wearing dresses with laws being passed allowing them access to the most private portions of the girl’s locker and bath rooms. This is the world we live in, and if you raise your voice against it, it is considered ‘hate speech’ and ‘violence’ against diversity. As I watch all this, my heart breaks for lost people, and I am doing everything I can to get the gospel out to see people get saved. But after the Rapture, I will be in full agreement with the LORD regarding the judgments He will send upon this earth.

3 Ridgeline football players face felony charges over sexual abuse case on school bus

FROM KUTV2: Three Ridgeline High School football players are facing felony charges over an incident of hazing involving sexual abuse on a school bus. The sheriff’s office is now investigating and said this happened on a bus when the players were returning from a sports event on Aug. 19. The incident was initially reported as a hazing case, but after officials began investigating they determined this was not hazing and rather a serious crime.

“This was not horseplay, it was intentional. Which is why we are a looking at felony charges, of forcible sexual abuse, as well as attempted forcible sexual abuse,” Lt. Doyle Peck with Cache County said.

2News tried to speak to people regarding the incident but no one wanted to comment on the graphic nature of the allegations. Officials said they first found out about the alleged incident when a school resource officer forwarded on a report that this had allegedly occurred.

According to Peck, all the people involved are high school-aged males on the football team. He said the three players worked together to assault each victim but did not go into detail because the case was still under investigation. Peck said aside from the bus driver, there were two adult coaches on the bus but it was loud and rowdy, they were not aware of the incident that occurred. READ MORE

Ten PA High School Football Players Charged with Hazing, Sexual Assault

FROM BREITBART NEWS: Middletown Area High School’s football season was canceled in August after a cell phone video went viral showing serious hazing incidents in the school, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Superintendent Chelton Hunter told parents that a school investigation found that the hazing was “much more widespread and involved many more students” than was previously known, the paper noted. The administrators then canceled the school’s football season.

Now, the police are adding to the issue.

The Lower Swatara Township Police and the Criminal Investigation Division of the District Attorney’s Office in Dauphin County opened an investigation into the hazing videos. On Wednesday, Dauphin County District Attorney Francis T. Chardo announced that ten students were charged.

“Two students, both seventeen years of age, have been charged with multiple counts of criminal attempt to commit involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, indecent assault, unlawful restraint, simple assault, and hazing,” Chardo said in a statement, according to TMZ Sports.

Investigators added that six students, ranging in ages from 14 to 17, were victims of the hazing. But up to six others may also have been victims but are reluctant to join the case. READ MORE

Queen Elizabeth Is Dead, Prince Charles Who Called For ‘Trillions’ To Be At The Disposal Of Antichrist Will Now Be England’s First King In A Generation

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Buckingham Palace has announced the death of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II, ending her 70-year reign. Prince Charles who called for ‘trillions’ of dollars to be given to Antichrist, now preparing to become king of England.

Back in an article published in June of 2022, we asked a simple question regarding the identity of the ‘prince of the covenant’ found in Daniel 11:22 in your King James Bible. In our day, we have an astonishing 3 princes all grabbing space in the end times headlines. Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed who is the key driver behind the Abraham Accords is in first place, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who is busy building NEOM in second place, and the man bringing up the rear, Prince Charles who wants to give trillions to Antichrist is in third place…and he just became king. Wow, awake yet?

“Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.” John 16:11 (KJB)

I have a feeling that things are going to starting moving quickly now. Prince Charles is king of England, Pope Francis possibly preparing to be replaced by a much younger man, Emmanuel Macron recently re-elected for 5 more years. Charles is not going to do much for England, but I have a feeling he will be quite useful to the end times. See video below for more on that.

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II Dead, Charles is King

FROM BREITBART NEWS: The Queen died at Balmoral, her private Scottish home this afternoon. She was Britain’s longest-ever reigning Monarch, at 70 years and 214 days.

According to the customs and laws shared by the United Kingdom and 14 other Commonwealth Realms of which Her Majesty was head of state, the Prince of Wales — known as the Duke of Rothesay in Scotland — as heir became King at the moment of his mother’s passing.

The new King may select a regnal name, or choose to continue as King Charles the Third. The associations of the English Civil War with the name Charles may prompt such a decision, or it might be thought enough time has passed.

While the nation will now observe a period of mourning for the popular and long-lived Queen Elizabeth II, the coronation of King Charles could come as early as twelve months time. READ MORE

Prince Charles at the COP26 said this: “Here we need a vast military style campaign to marsh the strength of the global private sector, with trillions at his disposal far beyond global GDP, and with the greatest respect, beyond even the governments of the world’s leaders. It offers the only real prospect of achieving fundamental economic transition. So how do we do it?” Awake yet?

Major Corporations Are Now Sponsoring Child Drag Shows To Prepare The Way For Pedophilia To Become An ‘Acceptable Part’ Of The LGBTQIA+ Movement

Published

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Wells Fargo, Target, Hewlett-Packard, and Citibank are sponsoring the Boise Pride Festival in Idaho that will feature child drag performers.

We have been saying this for well over a decade, but you mark it down and remember we told you it was going to happen. The day is coming, and is now nearly here, where pedophilia and pedophiles will be a protected class of people under the LGBTQIA+ Movement 6-color-rainbow battle flag. You say it can’t happen, it won’t happen, but wake up Church because it is happening.

“Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.” Romans 7:13 (KJB)

Let me also say that I have a heart for people trapped in the LGBTQIA+ Movement, and I tell them all the time that Jesus went to the cross to pay for their sins, too. But make no mistake about it, all that junk is wicked sin to be preached against and repented of. God is the God of the narrow way, of the straight way, you do the math, it comes out 777 every time. So why are we seeing so much of a push to promote child drag and child gender mutilation surgeries? Because Antichrist is about to step onto the stage, that’s why. And in Antichrist’s church, and he absolutely has one, prostitution and all manner of sexual perversion will be featured. Christian, use your words and your outside voice, and join us in speaking against child drag shows, gender surgeries, to warn the lost and remind the saints of what’s coming next.

Wells Fargo, Target, Citibank, Hewlett-Packard Sponsor Child Drag Performances

FROM BREITBART NEWS: The Boise Pride Festival will have an event called “Drag Kids on Stage.” The description reads, “You have watched the queens and kings, now it’s time to see the kids.” It goes on to call the performances “a drag show like none other” and notes that those between the ages of 11 and 18 will be performing.

“Come and cheer them on as they bring drag to the younger generation,” the description reads. The festival will also include a drag queen story hour and will host at least four different events with drag performers.

The Boise Pride Festival, which takes place September 9-11, is sponsored by several notable companies, including Wells Fargo, Target, Hewlett-Packard, and CitiBank. Both Target and Wells Fargo have a history of supporting leftist activism. The Target Foundation has funded Race Forward, a George Soros-backed organization that hopes to permanently entrench Critical Race Theory in the executive branch by staffing it with woke activist-bureaucrats.

Wells Fargo boasts that they’ve marched in over 50 pride parades and that customers can get credit cards emblazoned with the pride flag or the transgender flag. Wells Fargo has also supported various pro-LGBT and pro-trans organizations. The financial institution’s website notes that they have supported “key LGBTQ organizations through financial and volunteer resources, including HRC, Point Foundation, The Trevor Project, and Out & Equal Workplace Advocates.”

Various other corporations, including T-Mobile, Zion Bank, the Blue Cross of Idaho, Gilead, Albertsons, and Intuit, also sponsored the Boise Pride Festival. Several alcohol companies, including Tito’s, Jack Daniel’s, Smirnoff, Mike’s Hard Lemonade, and Rey Azul, a tequila company, are all sponsoring the event as well.

These are not the only companies that have endorsed and enabled child drag performances, however. Breitbart News previously revealed that Toyota sponsored a lesson for children on “the first steps of becoming a fabulous drag performer.” The event was run by “Mayhem Miller,” a drag performer who remarked, “When I was young, we didn’t have anything like this. You are going to change our future and I love every single one of you.”

The event was hosted by the Los Angeles LGBT Center, which Toyota gives at least $100,000 to on an annual basis. Both Wells Fargo and CitiBank, as well as Bank of America, financially support the organization. READ MORE
