Last year just before Halloween, Our Lord asked me to give a talk on Halloween. I did not do it. Last week He reminded me I need to give it and be obedient.
The message I received was: Halloween is not of Me. No costumes, witches, goblins, makeup to cover insecurities that people feel. My Name and Holiness is desecrated on that day. Black masses and witch’s brew mix with total evil and tear apart the family values that so many of My People try to form all year long. Satanic music blares over loudspeakers. They think it is acceptable but it is not. Tons of literature saturate the classroom, libraries, and bookstores. Parades of costumes glorify the untruth. Stores fill their shelves with grotesque items.
It is the same with movies and posters on Halloween. They are evil and not of Me. I do not profess My Love with weapons of destruction such as swords that people carry. Snakes and tarantulas are as lowly as the serpent that tempted My Son in the desert. He is the same serpent that tempted Adam and Eve in Paradise. My Son was strong and you should be, too. You need to give a talk on the evil that abounds rather than participate in their shenanigans.
A candlelight service to the dead is respectful. There should be more of them.
The following is taken from a talk I give on Inner Healing at Prayer Healing Ministry and also included in the Life in the Spirit Seminars:
Lord, for any dabbling in the occult: horoscopes, crystals, crystal ball gazing, Ouija boards, tarot cards, fortune telling, tea leaves, palm reading, gambling, sorcery, hypnotism, new age, ESP, telepathy, psychic healing, some martial arts, some yoga, believing in UFO’s -- free me. For dealings with supernatural forces, secretive phenomena, Celtic beliefs, leprechauns, four-leaf clovers, good-luck charms, Halloween, Jack o’ lanterns, ghosts, poltergeists, witchcraft, sorcery, skulls, voodoo dolls, love potions, books and movies that talk about these subjects, especially the Harry Potter books – unbind me.
For familial diseases that have been passed down through my ancestors in my blood line to the next generation, especially those that surface between the ages of 12 and 16 – break that generational curse right now, Lord. For any type of sin that may have been transferred to me just by touching or listening to those with evil spirits through the radio or television, Internet, vile movies, lustful pictures, pornography, heavy-metal music – I plead the Blood of Jesus to cleanse me.
Lord, for the sin of omission, I ask forgiveness. For those times I sat back and failed to evangelize, to stand up for Christian beliefs, for not sharing with the needy, not going to church – I ask you to make me bold in the Spirit.
On the brighter side, I put this on my Small White Hearts blog: being a Christian is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off you. He opens you up, touches you deep inside, scoops out all the yucky stuff –including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc. Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside you to shine for all the world to see.
