Thank You, Jesus, for Wooing after all of us, your children, inside of the church walls and throughout the city/state/world/nations with your precious HOLY SPIRIT. Calling for all of us to stand up and to be HOLY as You, Oh Father, our HOLY, RIGHTEOUS and PURE Father, amen. There in of itself is nothing wrong with candy, but just not on the day that the world celebrates as Halloween. You, O Father, are HOLY, RIGHTEOUS and PURE, and You have called Your Ekklesia, your Church, Your called out ones, Your assemblies, to be imitators of YOU, O FATHER GOD. GOD, You have placed us here to be Your hands and feet to the Nations/Peoples of the World. Amen.
WHY DO WE REALLY CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN?
How can we do this, my friends, if we are living just like the WORLD and celebrating the Pagan holidays the same as they do? You say we have “Christianized” them and brought them into the church to save them and bring them to Jesus, really? Or is it that you really like celebrating and partying, and you are using it all as an excuse to continue living your old evil lifestyle and putting a Christian emphasis on it to make you look HOLIER than those outside the doors or now parking lots of our churches with “Trunk or Treats”?
WHY DO WE INSIST ON VIOLATING SCRIPTURE?
We need to wise up and smell the coffee that God has said more than once to me. Is it really worth putting the Pagan names into our church buildings and our homes when we know that God’s Word is set against taking what is pagan and putting GOD’S HOLY NAME TO IT. HE (GOD, JESUS) has told us many times in the Bible that you read to NOT DO as the PAGANS DO but come out from among her. Why aren’t we the Church/Ekklesia doing that? Why have we allowed this all to happen?
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS A GENTLEMAN, HE WILL NOT FORCE HIS WAY INTO YOUR LIFE
Yes, I had found myself doing it in times past, but this last 3-4 years when I truly repented of my sins and asked God to change me and reconstruct me for what makes HIS HEART HAPPY, HE did exactly that. He healed me from the inside out and has shown and told me many things that I have never, ever heard preached in the church. When you invite the HOLY SPIRIT into your life, HE is a GENTLEMEN AND WILL ONLY DO WHAT YOU HAVE PERMITTED HIM TO DO. NOTHING MORE AND NOTHING LESS. WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN FREE WILL/CHOICE AND UNLESS WE ask HIM, HE will just stay there waiting until you give HIM PERMISSION TO CHANGE YOU.
THE CHURCH IS DYING OF “STINKING THINKING”
This is why I believe the church is dying a slow death. We say we are saved and have JESUS living inside of us, but we have never, truly ever given up our old way of “stinking thinking.” We still want to hold tight to the pagan things of this world to have a little familiarity of where we came from. Some of us are just like LOT’S wife. We want to be saved, but we continue to hold onto the past, hoping we can still be saved and be set free from the evils of this wicked world we know to be.
ARE WE GOING TO HEED GOD’S CALL?
Are we going to take the heed/call that NOAH was ushered to give the people in his day, or are we going to keep playing with the FIRE and get burnt because of DISOBEDIENCE TO THE GOD WHO GAVE HIMSELF AS A RANSOM FOR ALL MANKIND? JESUS’ DEATH does not have to go in vain. We can make a difference in this old, ugly, nasty world without bringing their pagan ideas into our homes/neighborhoods/churches/ community centers/parking lots wherever they do these evil things and put OUR HOLY GOD’S name to it.
JESUS GAVE HIS ALL FOR US, WE SHOULD GIVE OUR ALL FOR HIM
We have to stand up and be different and separate ourselves, if we truly want to be one of GOD’s ELECT CHILDREN/BRIDE. We have to stop compromising and stand up for our GROOM, the LORD JESUS CHRIST. HE gave HIS EVERYTHING FOR YOU AND FOR I. Why is it that we don’t think we have to do anything for HIM in return, except believe that HE is who HE says for HIMSELF to be, and then we can continue to do and be whatever we want to be because HE paid the penalty for all of our sins. He didn’t literally have or bear all of the diseases and things upon HIS BODY, but HE was our Propitiation, Our Sin OFFERING once and for all time. For if HE had to have all of our diseases and infirmities on himself for us to be healed, then He can’t heal broken bones because on the cross none of HIS bones were ever broken.
God wants for all HIS CREATION to know HIM, not just know of HIM, and this is a big difference! HE loves each of us so very much, and HE is knocking on your heart’s door. Will you accept HIM or will you Dismiss HIM, like so many times before? HE (GOD) wants to get to know you on an intimate level. The RELATIONSHIP HE wants is your whole heart, your whole SOUL your whole everything. HE wants to Woo you and have you Woo HIM back. For HE is a JEALOUS GOD and doesn’t like it when we cheat or prostitute ourselves out to other gods. Trust you will make the right choice today and give back to GOD what is HIS and leave behind to satan what is his, amen.
