Please be Wise

It is a matter of awareness.  One of laying down the tug and pull of society.  It is a choice to understand and to research our choices before we make them and before we make them for our children.  WE DON'T LIVE IN A DAY AND AGE ANYMORE AS BELIEVERS, WHERE WE CAN SIMPLY ALLOW THE WORLD'S AGENDA TO LEAD US....WE MUST LET GOD's TRUTH LEAD US FOR IT IS ABOUT TO GET A LOT HARDER TO LIVE FOR TRUTH.  Can anything in this day an age not have purpose?  Can anything we do and say not affect our hearts?  We have got to BE AWARE.  The devil prowls around waiting for someone to destroy, and how does he do this?  He creates little "nibbles" of his lies and decorates them as something healthy and good, something we deserve or something that wont hurt us.  If we are fighting in the battle...if we have come to know the Light of Jesus within us and are daily seeking Him to grow and assure that, then more and more the darkness will be recognizable so we can flee.  We will start plainly seeing the lies of the *nemy and will be able to use God's Power to walk away.  The battle right now is too real and we cannot afford to "play around" with darkness, never mind allowing our children to take part in these things. 
  • First Thessalonians 5:6 says, "So we should not be like other people who are sleeping, but we should be alert and have self-control." Verse 8 says, " ... We should wear faith and love to protect us, and the hope of salvation should be our helmet."
  • 1 Corinthians 10:21 says , "You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons."
I just don't understand the conflict in Believers about October 31.  I don't get why it is such a battle for them to see.  Is it because some may have not experienced the realness of the demonic? Is it because they do not know the origins of the day? (if you don't then CLICK HERE)  But please research as well on your own.

There is no fear in God's Love.  In fact, His Love CASTS OUT FEAR!!!!!!!!!!!! This day is meant to cute-i-fy fear and teach children to do so. (The Bible, on the other hand, does not permit merging false religious practices with the worship of God.—2 Corinthians 6:17) It is a VERY dangerous place to be in when we are trying to raise our children to fear GOD ONLY and to not be overcome by the temptations and darkness that is already too prevalent in their world.  In fact there ARE many horrid and completely demonic displays around our neighborhood.  I cannot imagine taking my precious daughter and placing her in the middle of 7 ghosts who all face and worship a demon with blood running down its face in the middle of them.  (I am not kidding, this is ONLY ONE display, and there are MANY MANY more around here).  It would not be funny, not be cute, and not be something I could explain to her.  She automatically knows to be afraid....her spirit knows and I must teach her about the realities of the spiritual world as the Lord leds me and guide her heart to know how powerful Jesus is against darkness.  No part of Who God is, is in a display like that. It is not cute, it is not funny.

My question is, can this day truly please God for what it is?  Not for how we try and rationalize it...not for how we try and Christian-ize it with Church Trick-or-Treating (, but for what it is and what the origins are?

Here is also a site that simply lists verses that are related to this issue.
