Will You Fall For Halloween?
This is a season to be celebrating the God who created the fabulous colors we see in the fall.
A large part of this celebration is, of course, done in praise to our Father!
Another necessary part is to renew our commitment in the spiritual battles we face here.
It's time to remember the real enemy, and take inventory of our individual preparedness for this battle. This is not a time to make light of the evil in our world, but perhaps time to realize what is at stake. Once anyone becomes desensitized to satan's evil, it is easy for him to distract us - even Christians- from the real battle. How fair are we being to our children to once a year let them pretend to be evil ( Freddy, vampires, witches, etc) and to be rewarded for it? How fair is it for them to hear "Oh, isn't that cute?" from perfect strangers who will hand them treats for looking evil? How fair are we being to once a year let them believe evil is not really evil, but a game?
My heart aches for the children....I see the way they are dressed and I wonder how we ever got to this place! The childhood of many people has been destroyed by adults who took this evil seriously enough to worship it. And yet, we allow our children to believe evil is not for real. We leave them open to satan and his lies!
This halloween, I will be praying for those children who are being lied to.
I will also be praying for the children who will be subjected to satanic rituals on Halloween night, and for the children who have survived other halloween nights of terror. I am asking you to give thought to this also and to join me in these prayers.
There are numerous people struggling to overcome what has happened to them in the past , and there will be more. But if God's people are praying, there will be many more victorious!
And when I am praying, I will be praising God for what He has brought many of us through from past abuse. I will be praising Him that He is the victor over evil, and that He has provided a way for everyone of us to be victorious! I will be praising Him and thanking Him for loving us enough to send His precious Son to suffer for my sins. I will be praying for forgiveness for the times I have allowed myself to be deadened to the seriousness of the evil in this world, and have made light of it. OH, how that must hurt Him!
Can you imagine the pain in His heart to see us dressing our children (and ourselves) up as a creature that satan has inspired? His children, dressing up as the very evil that He sacrificed His Son for!
Please join me in pray and in preparing for battle!
And then let us praise Him for all He is and all He has done, and all He will be doing in our lives!

Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
