The Halloween Abomination
From the Encyclopedia Britannica, the origin of "Halloween":
"Halloween, in medieval times All Hallows Eve, a holy or hallowed evening observed on October 31, the eve of All Saints Day; in modern times, it is the occasion for pranks and for children requesting treats or threatening tricks."
"Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils"
The LORD makes very plain that His people are not to seek the advice of, nor behave like, demons. Such idolatry is a vile abomination in the LORD's sight. The spirit of demons cannot enter where the Holy Spirit of God is present.
"10:14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry. 10:15 I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say. 10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ? 10:17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread. 10:18 Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar? 10:19 What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? 10:20 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. 10:21 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 10:14-21 KJV)
Satan himself masquerades (i.e. wears a mask) as "an angel of light" (see also Face Of An Angel, Heart Of A Devil):
"11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works" (2 Corinthians 11:11-15 KJV)
Judas the traitor is a prime example of what happens to those who consort with devils:
"6:70 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil? 6:71 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve." (John 6:70-71 KJV)
Demons (or "devils") have a single purpose in our time - to deceive and destroy humanity, if they are allowed to, by people refusing to repent of the evil of demon idolatry - upon which the wrath of God is coming:
"9:20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: 9:21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts" (Revelation 9:20-21 KJV)
