What is the message of Halloween? Is it bring glory and honor to God.
This festival of death has survived all the efforts of the church to stamp it out. The church is joining the opposition by celebrating this festival. All Saints Day became All Hallows Day. Hallow means holy or sacred. October 31 is the evening before All Hallows Day and came to be called in the western world all hallows evening and then all hallows een. Een is an abbreviation for evening. Finally, the word was reduced to the way we have it today, Halloween. That's where the name came from, and even if it is called all hallows evening, it has nothing to do with Christian faith, and it never did.
In today's episode, blogger Sacerdotus speaks on Halloween or All Hallow's Eve. He explains the origin of this holiday and how it was once pagan and made Catholic. Sacerdotus gives some ideas on how to re-Christianize Halloween and gives tips on how to be safe when going out to trick or threat. Happy Halloween!

This is the origin of Halloween masquerading as devils, imps, orgres, and other demonic creatures. 1 Tim. 4:1..Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons.
Where is Jesus Christ in Halloween?
The origin of Halloween customs antedate Christianity. First, it was believed that the dead would rise out of their graves and wander the countryside, trying to return to the homes where they formerly lived. Frightened villagers tried to appease these wandering spirits by offering them gifts of fruits and nuts. If not placated villagers, feared that the spirits would kill their flocks or destroy their property. This the origin of our present day Trick-or-treat! In a custom born out of superstition, and pagan superstition at that!
Also, it's a blasphemous perversion of the Christian belief in the Resurrection, in a glorified, immortal body. In Druidism, the dead are raised as horrifying creatures of the night, hideous monsters, decaying skeletons, vampires, etc., they received not glorified bodies but grotesque ones; not immortal bodies but inhuman ones.

From entertertainment media overkill (seems like the right term what with the current Halloween image and all) to Taylor Swift being the New York City public rep or whatever she's supposed to be, things just seem to be lurching more and more to the slightly off-kilter. Or at least that's the way your host, "The Voice", sees things. Or maybe he might just need to broaden his perspective on some socio-cultural matters? Nah, things are weird.
Jesus Christ is the Food everyone needs for the Journey:
John 6:50 This is the bread which comes down out of heaven, so that one may eat of it andnot die. 51 I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh.” 52 Then the Jews began to argue with one another, saying, “How can this man give us His flesh to eat?” 53 So Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. 54 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day. 55 For My flesh is true food, and My blood is true drink. 56 He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.
