It’s the Great Satan, Charlie Brown!
This morning’s guest columnist is Kimberly Daniels, founder of Kimberly Daniels Ministries International, in Jacksonville, Florida. Normally we would abridge her fine work, but we don’t want our immortal soul TP’d by the Creator.
Halloween — October 31 — is considered a holiday in the United States. In fact, it rivals Christmas with regard to how widely celebrated it is. Stores that sell only Halloween-related paraphernalia open up a few months before the day and close shortly after it ends. But is Halloween a holiday that Christians should be observing?
The word “holiday” means “holy day.” But there is nothing holy about Halloween. The root word of Halloween is “hallow,” which means “holy, consecrated and set apart for service.” If this holiday is hallowed, whose service is it set apart for? The answer to that question is very easy — Lucifer’s!
Lucifer is a part of the demonic godhead. Remember, everything God has, the devil has a counterfeit. Halloween is a counterfeit holy day that is dedicated to celebrating the demonic trinity of: the Luciferian Spirit (the false father); the Antichrist Spirit (the false holy spirit); and the Spirit of Belial (the false son).
The key word in discussing Halloween is “dedicated.” It is dedicated to darkness and is an accursed season. During Halloween, time-released curses are always loosed. A time-released curse is a period that has been set aside to release demonic activity and to ensnare souls in great measure.
You may ask, “Doesn’t God have more power than the devil?” Yes, but He has given that power to us. If we do not walk in it, we will become the devil’s prey. Witchcraft works through dirty hearts and wrong spirits.
During this period demons are assigned against those who participate in the rituals and festivities. These demons are automatically drawn to the fetishes that open doors for them to come into the lives of human beings. For example, most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches.
I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door to door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons cannot tell the difference.
Even the colors of Halloween (orange, brown and dark red) are dedicated. These colors are connected to the fall equinox, which is around the 20th or 21st of September each year and is sometimes called “Mabon.” During this season witches are celebrating the changing of the seasons from summer to fall. They give praise to the gods for the demonic harvest. They pray to the gods of the elements (air, fire, water and earth).
Mother earth is highly celebrated during the fall demonic harvest. Witches praise mother earth by bringing her fruits, nuts and herbs. Demons are loosed during these acts of worship. When nice church folk lay out their pumpkins on the church lawn, fill their baskets with nuts and herbs, and fire up their bonfires, the demons get busy. They have no respect for the church grounds. They respect only the sacrifice and do not care if it comes from believers or non-believers.
Gathering around bonfires is a common practice in pagan worship. As I remember, the bonfires that I attended during homecoming week when I was in high school were always in the fall. I am amazed at how we ignorantly participate in pagan, occult rituals.
The gods of harvest that the witches worship during their fall festivals are the Corn King and the Harvest Lord. The devil is too stupid to understand that Jesus is the Lord of the Harvest 365 days a year. But we cannot be ignorant of the devices of the enemy. When we pray, we bind the powers of the strong men that people involved in the occult worship.
Halloween is much more than a holiday filled with fun and tricks or treats. It is a time for the gathering of evil that masquerades behind the fictitious characters of Dracula, werewolves, mummies and witches on brooms. The truth is that these demons that have been presented as scary cartoons actually exist. I have prayed for witches who are addicted to drinking blood and howling at the moon.
While the lukewarm and ignorant think of these customs as “just harmless fun,” the vortexes of hell are releasing new assignments against souls. Witches take pride in laughing at the ignorance of natural men (those who ignore the spirit realm).
Decorating buildings with Halloween scenes, dressing up for parties, going door-to-door for candy, standing around bonfires and highlighting pumpkin patches are all acts rooted in entertaining familiar spirits. All these activities are demonic and have occult roots.
The word “occult” means “secret.” The danger of Halloween is not in the scary things we see but in the secret, wicked, cruel activities that go on behind the scenes. These activities include:
- Sex with demons
- Orgies between animals and humans
- Animal and human sacrifices
- Sacrificing babies to shed innocent blood
- Rape and molestation of adults, children and babies
- Revel nights
- Conjuring of demons and casting of spells
- Release of “time-released” curses against the innocent and the ignorant.
Another abomination that goes on behind the scenes of Halloween is necromancy, or communication with the dead. Séances and contacting spirit guides are very popular on Halloween, so there is a lot of darkness lurking in the air.
However, Ephesians 1:19-21 speaks of the authority of the believer and the exceeding greatness of God’s power in us (the same power that raised Christ from the dead). It goes on to say that that Jesus is seated in heavenly places far above all principalities, power, might, dominions and every name that is named. The good news is that because we are seated in heavenly places with Jesus, the same demonic activity that is under His feet is under our feet, too!
People who worship the devil continue to attempt to lift him up. But he has already been cast out and down! Many are blinded to this fact, but the day will come when all will know he has been defeated once and for all.
When we accept Jesus but refuse to renounce Satan and his practices, we are neither hot nor cold but lukewarm-and the Word says that God will spit us out of His mouth. The problem with lukewarm is that it attempts to mix the things of the devil with the things of God. It is God’s desire that we serve Him alone.
Second Corinthians 6:15 ask the question, “And what agreement has Christ with Belial?” As believers, we need to answer that question in our hearts. We must avoid the very appearance of evil. I would not want a demon spirit to mistake me for an occult worshiper.
There is no doubt in my heart that God is not calling us to replace fall festivals and Halloween activities; rather, He wants us to utterly destroy the deeds of this season. If you or your family members have opened the door to any curses that are released during the demonic fall festivals, renounce them and repent. I already have. Then declare with me: “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!”
Should Christians Celebrate Halloween? [Charisma, via RML]
As I remember, the bonfires that I attended during homecoming week when I was in high school were always in the fall.
Gee, d’ja think that has something to do with the fact that homecoming is in the freakin fall? It’d look pretty stupid to have a raging bonfire to root on East Crack High against West Nut Catholic in the middle of the summer.
Some of my parents friends are like this. For about 2 decades, they celebrated Halloween, gave out candy etc and then about 5 years ago, they stopped because their pastor said it was evil.
On a personal level, my parents don’t think this is wingnutty fundie and tried to set me up with their daughter (gaaah.)
I started laughing when I heard this, but it is becoming a common occurance among the more fundie of the religious community. Fortunately (especially if you’re a dentist), the lure of free candy is stronger than being more Jeebusy than Jeebus.
As for me… as a proud father I’d like to announce that last night my 5 year old won the prize for “cutest costume” at her school Halloween dance for her Wonder Woman costume!!! Wheee!
We’re watching the pilot from the first season of Wonder Woman as I write this…. and yes, the show is just as awesome as I remember when I was a kid.
Congrats to the little Serolf-ette.
Ah Wonder Woman… at least the show never took itself seriously unlike many comic book movies these days.
Sadly, No! points out that Daniels’ post was so wingnutty that Pat Robertson’s site took it down:
“And before you start bitching and fussing and moaning and asking why we aren’t passing out mini-Snickers and Take Five bars like everybody else, I have one thing to say: Kimberly Daniels is so crazy that her column got yanked from Pat Robertson’s site. Now, that shut you up, didn’t it?”
I think Pat loves $ more than Jeebus. He must have had a talking to from the “friendly” folks at Hershey. Don’t fuck with the sugar lobby!
What and this compendium of debauchery is supposed to turn everyone off on Halloween?
* Sex with demons
* Orgies between animals and humans
* Animal and human sacrifices
* Sacrificing babies to shed innocent blood
* Rape and molestation of adults, children and babies
* Revel nights
* Conjuring of demons and casting of spells
* Release of “time-released” curses against the innocent and the ignorant.
This sounds, to the last detail, exactly like an RNC planning meeting, leaving out the part where Karl Rove leads the delegates in a prayer to Reagan to deliver them unto Satan – but that could be grouped under ‘conjuring’. Is it Halloween every day when you’re an RNC exec? Is that what she is trying to say?
Thank you for sharing.
I’m going to go and bang my head off a wall.
@FlyingChainSaw: I for one enjoyed quite a few occasions of sex with demons. Youthful indiscretions, sure, but entirely enjoyable.
@Serolf Divad: Congrats! My
urchins kids struck All Hallows’ gold as well. Jr. nabbed third place in the Local Parade when he and the rest of his Brownshirt Scout den donned full metal jacket and rode on a tricked-out-as-Humvee-ATV in a “support the troops” themed display that failed only to best the middle school marching band dressed as zombies and the HS theater troupe dressed as….zombies.
Den Leader Flanders would have done well to go with my idea: military garbed zombies.
OMG, where did you get that image?
I have to say, as one with no personal investment, that manchu’s accounts of his family are hilarious. Perhaps not quite so much fun to live through as they are to read about. But. Hilarious. I smell a sitcom.
They really need to start pumping thorazine into the nation’s water supplies.
Wow, this woman sure seems to know a lot about all this devil worship stuff. A LOT.
SanFranLefty: The Sun-Times runs a cartoon strip by the guy who did the cartoon you see here, highlighting Latino/a culture. The name escapes me, because I don’t subscribe to the Sun-Times, as it is for crap. (Major metropolitan newspaper running AP wire stories instead of hiring somebody to actually leave town and stuff. Yuck.)
That cartoon strip isn’t horrible. It’s actually OK. Unlike the Hispanic cartoon that runs in the Trib cartoon page, which looks like it was drawn by a five-year-old and isn’t funny.
Oh please. Put this bitch in a sexy nurse’s outfit with some 3 inch fuck me pumps and she’d be doing body shots and giving covert hand jobs with the rest of us.
What the hell are “Revel Nights”? Sounds like fun.
@ManchuCandidate: Wow, if she had keys to the church, you had an even chance of pestorking her on the altar. She still available?
@SanFranLefty: @chicago bureau: Credit to RML for the cartoon as well; he flagged me about it a week or two back.
It is funny, much much after the fact.
Surprisingly, she still is.
@ManchuCandidate: Will you take her writhing and shrieking praises to Jesus on the altar of her father’s church for Stinque.TV ?
I’ll do anything for lust, but I won’t do that…
Maybe it’s just me, but it is a sad commentary on the present state of hyperreligious wingnuttery if I don’t find this that remarkable? I mean, it’s not a huge conceptual jump from dressing like the devil to worshipping the devil – at least not relative to the folks who somehow get from HCR to worshipping the devil…
@al2o3cr: As Manchu points out (and I considered when RML sent the tip), the Halloween devil-worship trope is nothing new. But this is such a thorough example of the genre, I couldn’t resist. Even Pagans will pick up a few pointers.
@nojo: I’m with pedo. Revel nights.
@homofascist: I hereby nominate this for Comment of the Year. I haven’t laughed so hard in weeks.
As hee-larious as this whole screed is, due to the fact that there are people just as stupid as she is out there who fancy themselves “Satanists”, none of my cats have been allowed outside for 2 weeks, and the solid black one has been confined to the house since Sept 30. Kittehs will celebrate the Feast of All Saints (a/k/a All Hallows, Kimberley, you moran) tomorrow with tuna in the garden.
My favorite Halloween story is from third grade, when I was innocently gathering coins for one-world government…
Knock on door.
“Trick or Treat for Unicef!”
A shining example of Man at His Best — beer gut, don’t recall whether he was wearing a wifebeater — gives me a harsh stare.
“Don’t you know that money goes to Communist children?”
