Should You Observe Satan's Holy Day?
by Wayne Blank
I realize now that I should have accepted the offer anyway. Perhaps she would not have asked me to be on her program for anything after that (as she hasn't anyway, perhaps because I didn't accept her offer the first time) but at least for that one program the host and her audience would have heard the Biblical Truth about Halloween, if they weren't already aware of it (as many people actually are). Henceforth, whenever asked, by anyone, anywhere on earth, I will be there, not because I've become less considerate over the past year, but because now more than ever I realize that nothing is more important than the Truth, regardless of who likes it or not.
This study is published well before Halloween not only for that reason, but also to give time for people to make other arrangements for themselves (surely you aren't going to any Satanic Halloween parties, are you?) or their children (parents who do not want their children to participate in Satanic Halloween activities, but at the same time not have the little ones feel "left out" have some other activity that night that the children will very much enjoy but which is not evil - Satan has been making substitutes for the true Biblical Holy Days for thousands of years, so substituting something good for something bad on his "holy day" is a reasonable turnabout).
"The only day on which the help of the devil was invoked"
As many already know, but who observe it anyway (sometimes even in church buildings), Halloween had its origin and basis in evil paganism, which God condemns (see Witchcraft). Halloween may perhaps best be described by its associated name, Devil's Night.
The respected and authoritative Encyclopedia Britannica has a startling account about what's behind Halloween i.e. "the only day on which the help of the devil was invoked":
"Halloween, in medieval times All Hallows Eve, a holy or hallowed evening observed on October 31, the eve of All Saints Day [Author's note: "a tradition of men" religious observance that is not found anywhere in God's Word]; in modern times, it is the occasion for pranks and for children requesting treats or threatening tricks."
And what does God's Word say about participating in activities based on paganism, witchcraft, demons, divination, and "seeking the help of the devil"? From the pages of The Bible:
"But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils." (1 Corinthians 10:20-21 KJV)
