As parents in the Columbia and many other areas of the country are considering what Halloween costumes to buy for their children to wear, which scary movies to watch, etc., they should consider the warning that when they let their children dress up as warlocks, witches, or other demonic characters and let them watch movies or read books about people who use the spiritual power from witchcraft or the spiritual forces of darkness; their children.may want to become like the character they are dressing up as, reading about, or seeing in the demonic-centered movies they are watching.
As the children are doing those things they could be opening up the door of the inner spiritual nature so that the Devil’s spiritual forces of darkness could come into the child’s life and either influence or dominate the child’s mind and behavior.
Even though some people initially thought that doing some of the above things were just role playing fantasy games, instead they have found that they had become overcome by the evil presence of demonic forces in their life.
When people realize what is happening, they have to make a big decision of whether to continue letting the spiritual forces of the Devil control their lives in their present life and then after they die they will be sent to live with the Devil in hell forever; or they can choose to cry out to God to come and rescue them from being in all that spiritual darkness and bring them into God’s spiritual kingdom of light.
When people cry out to God to come rescue them from being in spiritual darkness, ask God to forgive them for breaking His laws, ask Jesus Christ to become their personal Savior and spiritually apply His sacrificial atonement to their lives, use the power of the Holy Spirit to gather and throw out any demonic forces they have let come into their life; then God will hear their cry for help, forgive them for breaking His laws, remove the spiritual death sentence that they deserved for breaking His laws, pull them out of the Devil’s spiritual kingdom of darkness and put them into God’s spiritual kingdom of light, throw out any demonic forces that have been living inside of them, make them God’s newly restored creation, and send the power of the Holy Spirit to live inside of them to give them the ability to live according to God’s principles of living found in the Bible.
As new Christians daily study the Bible to learn God’s principles and talk to God in prayer about their problems, they can develop a close relationship with God that will bring new meaning into their lives and help them overcome the many problems that they will face during the rest of their journey of life.
Now that we have examined the potential dangers of certain Halloween activities, people can make informed decisions about what they want to do. They need to choose wisely since some choices could be a horrendous trick, while other choices could become a wonderful treat!
