I was trawling though my emails today when I cam across this email from my friend which showed her latest post. Now what is about to be said wont win any popularity contests.
This post Is Halloween a Trick or a Treat? on Anne's blog Inka~A~Doodle~Do has a very good history to the background of it all, from both sides. So if you want really good info with much clearer detail do pop over, please.
What puzzles me is the way it is taken up so willingly these days and put into every nook and cranny of our lives. In fact this often causes me to be very sad as I see so much of here in Australia, and on the net.
Anne's article set me to thinking ~ WHO is the one tricking us into this tricking and treating???
Anne points this out clearly, giving good historical and Biblical backgrounds to both views on it.
|Flowers from our Frangipani tree - God's glorious creation we enjoy daily!|
Jesus Himself said Satan was the father of lies from the beginning!
.. and surely this sadly is another of his lies.
Tricking people into thinking it is a treat to do this sort of thing.
It is not a treat - but a trick!
And as Anne says (and the Bible says too) what is not of God, comes from the one who seeks to deceive us all - Satan.
Anything to take us from the truth of God.
"Jesus said, When you shall know the truth, the truth will set you free...
..I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life, no man comes to the Father but by Me." (John 8:32, 14:6)
God bless you Anne and especially bless this faithful word for Him,
