There is a song that says, 'there is a name I love to hear, I love to sing its worth. It sounds like music in my ear, the sweetest name on earth. Oh, how I love Jesus.'
The Bible teaches that if you love God, you will keep His commandments and his commandments are not grievous. Just mouthing the words 'I love Jesus' is not enough. God is looking for obedience. Obedience is the proof that a soul loves Jesus Christ.
I would admonish you today, to seek the Love until you find Him so you can experience His true love. Yes, He loves you as a creation. But He wants to love you as a child of His. Too many are voicing words and not living the life.
'O, how I love Jesus, because He first loved me.'
"By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments." I John 5:2
Thank God that ungodly day, halloween, has passed. This year, more Saints celebrated this ungodly day more than I have ever witnessed before. It is amazing to me that Holy Ghost filled people would celebrate this day. Exposing children to evil spirits.
I wrote on yesterday the following and I need to share it on the church page. Halloween is not of God!! No where in the Bible will you find scripture acknowledging it. This is what I wrote on yesterday.
'In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, what are those professing to be saved doing observing Halloween? Matters not what you call it (trunk or treat, fall festiveal or whatever), it is still not of God. Candy is available 365 days a year. It can be bought all year long. Why in the world would born again, baptized believers expose children to evil, darkness, devils and evil spirits? You can not have the Holy Ghost and acknowledge felloship with devils. Halloween is pagan. It was set aside time to wear costumes and Druids and Celtic priests would make predictions to ward off ghosts. Pope Gregory III expanded it to make it 'acceptable' for Christians to consider to participate (just like they did Christmas, which is also not of the Lord).
Saints, DON'T DO IT!! In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, don't do it. What fellowship has light with darkness? God said to train up a child in the way they should go. Saints, they should not do halloween!!! The Bible says to believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God (I John 4:1). Does halloween give way to the Spirit of God? No.
You do not have to agree, but you can not find one scripture in the Bible to support Gods people observing halloween. Not one. The world observing halloween is one thing. But the Saints??
Then we wonder why the power of God is not in operation as it once was. Too much worldliness, from the pulpit to the door.
Give the youth a chance. Don't do it.
**Prayerfully, next year the Saints will leave that day alone and start having more prayer meetings and revivals to draw the unsaved to Jesus.
