Greetings brothers and friends,
The human being has always had the attraction for the forbidden things. In paradise, God tells him to eat everything but the tree of good and evil. But finally, he ate from that tree, bringing fatal consequences.
There are many prohibitions in the Bible, but for some strange reason, the human being ignores the prohibitions and is tempted to do what is not due. We have the case of celebrations that God does not like but that people celebrate with more boom, even the Christian people are falling into that.
For example, today Halloween is celebrated and then the day of the dead, and although many of us have explained the origin of these celebrations, they do not mind continuing to celebrate something that does not please God. Many say that we are exaggerated for saying that Halloween is bad and that it should not be celebrated, they say it is a cool and harmless celebration.
But everything must be tested through the word of God.
1 Thessalonians 5: 21-22
21 but test them all; hold on to what is good, 22 reject every kind of evil.
2 Corinthians 11:14
14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.
The celebration of Halloween has to do with the dead … offerings are made for the dead, apparently it is harmless, but the real background of those days is that there is a private celebration of Satanists for Satan.
1 Corinthians 10: 20-22
20 No, but the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons. 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons. 22 Are we trying to arouse the Lord’s jealousy? Are we stronger than he?
Every celebration made for the dead is rejected by God, no matter how harmless it may be, and instead of being rebellious, one must seek more from God and keep his word, so that the spiritual eyes are open and can understand what these mean. celebrations
They sacrificed to false gods, which are not God—
gods they had not known,
gods that recently appeared,
gods your ancestors did not fear.
Many disguise their children, who become partakers of something that God does not like, but these people do not believe that something that is apparently just for fun, can have negative consequences for their lives.
1 Timothy 4: 1
The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.
The fact of dressing up, and exchanging sweets, becomes attractive to children, who are innocent, but parents, who must be watching so as not to be seduced by these things that separate them from God. They are the first to instill children on Halloween.
Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.
Do not be seduced by things that the enemy disguises, ask God’s direction to understand what is good and what is bad and Search the word of God, with which you gain wisdom and knowledge.
