Burning In Hell: Is Halloween Worth It?
Despite the false "Christian" (listen to our Sermon Constantine's Papacy) label that has been attached to it, "Halloween" is nothing but a heathen Babylonian/Roman religious invention (listen to our Sermon Halloween). It began as an "autumn fire festival" - a gullible and unwitting (i.e. most people who observe it don't realize what it really represents) mockery of the genuine autumn Holy Days of the LORD that will be completed with the hell fire that will consume those who refuse to repent of their devil worship (see The Lake Of Fire Into An Ocean Of Fire - When?; also The Eighth Day: What Does It Mean?).
First, from the Encyclopedia Britannica, the origin of "Halloween" - which includes the blatant admission that Halloween is a "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 [i.e. of the antichrist Church of Rome]; in modern times, it is the occasion for pranks and for children requesting treats or threatening tricks."
"There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire"
The LORD God (Who was and is Jesus Christ; see The First Christian Church) made it very plain that celebrations of sorcery was and is evil (see Sorcery). Notice very carefully that the warning includes not having "his son or his daughter" participate in such activity - a plain statement that surely includes "Halloween."
"18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 18:12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee." (Deuteronomy 18:10-12 KJV)
"Fellowship with devils" is antichristian idolatry. "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."
"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.
Salvation is about everyone, once they know the Truth, who repents of God-defined evil behaviour and activities and thereafter lives according to the true Word of God. Those who refuse to repent, once they know the Truth, are rejecting salvation for themselves - and choosing the fires that will consume those who prefer the putrid ways of the Devil (see also Do You Want A Servant Or A Serpent?).
"21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

This Day In History, October 31
475: Romulus Augustulus was proclaimed Western Roman Emperor (see also Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy).
1517: Martin Luther nailed his "95 Theses" to the door of the castle church in Wittenberg, Germany - the event that is considered to be the beginning of the Protestant Reformation (Luther was protesting a grossly-immoral pope, not most of the Church of Rome's doctrines - which Luther maintained).
1876: A cyclone caused over 200,000 deaths in India.
1914: The Ottoman empire entered the First World War against Britain, Russia and France. Jerusalem at the time was under Ottoman (Turkish) control. When the Ottoman empire was defeated at the end of the war, Jerusalem came under the control of the British (listen to our Sermons The European World Wars and The Ottoman Empire).
1917: During the First World War, British cavalry (the "last successful cavalry charge in history") under General Allenby captured Beersheba from the Ottomans; the British went on to capture Jerusalem a few weeks later, on December 9. Their control of the land of Israel later made possible a Biblically-prophesied event - the creation of the modern state of Israel in 1948 (along with our Sermons The European World Wars and The Ottoman Empire, listen to The Balfour Declaration).
1922: Benito Mussolini, 39, became Prime Minister of Italy. Son of a poor blacksmith, formerly a journalist and schoolmaster, a corporal in the First World War (as was Mussolini's close ally, Adolf Hitler), seriously wounded in 1917, he founded the Fascist Party. The Fascists derived their name from the Fasces of Imperial Rome, an axe wrapped in a bundle of elm or birch rods symbolizing unity and power. The Fascist Party also adopted the ancient insignia as its emblem.
1926: Magician Harry Houdini (actual name, Eric Weiss) died of gangrene and peritonitis that developed after his appendix ruptured. He spent much of his life searching for genuine "mediums" and "spiritists" but found only frauds and con-artists.
1940: The Nazis forces all Jews in the city into the Warsaw Ghetto.
1961: Russia's "de-Stalinization" program reached a climax when Stalin's body was removed from the mausoleum in Red Square and buried.
1984: Indira Gandhi, Prime Minister of India, was assassinated at her home by two of her bodyguards, who were Sikhs. Nearly 10,000 Sikhs were killed in the riots that followed.
1999: On the 482nd anniversary of Martin Luther's nailing his 95 Theses to the door of the castle church, representatives of the Roman Catholic and Lutheran Churches in Augsburg, Germany, signed a declaration to end the dispute that started the Protestant Reformation and led to the Thirty Years War.
