All Hollows Eve: Traditions for Poor People?

Have a Curiosity for the Spiritual World?

When I thought about writing this post, I thought about the glorification of notohalloweenfear.  How all of the television shows and all the movie channels are glorifying ghouls, goblins, ghosts, demons, the undead, haunted houses and the like. Everything in the media today including video games seem to be desensitizing us to like everything that is morally wrong.  Everything that we have been taught for generations is simply a sin, unrighteous and not of Jehovah.

I’m not sure if you’re like me, but for years I thought well, Halloween is just a tradition, its fun although I knew in my heart and always questioned the existence of ghosts, other realities, witches etc.  I was curiously scared enough to know to stay away from Tarot cards and the like, not knowing why but the quiet voice in my spirit always said NO, stay away’.  Now that I am more studied in the Word of Jehovah my curiosity is over and I am now in the KNOW.

James 4:7 - Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

There is definitely a spiritual world that we can’t see and there is evidence of this all throughout the Bible.  In fact, we ARE not only flesh and blood but also Spirit… So we must be careful not to play with the adversary.

Matthew 8:16 - When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with [his] word, and healed all that were sick:

Ready to Sacrifice your Children?

There is absolutely no way any Christian should have anything to do with creating fear in anyone’s heart.  It’s not fun, it’s extremely dangerous and leaves your spirit and your children’s spirit open to the adversary.  The old testament has multiple references to Jehovah’s disapproval of magic, witches, wizards etc.  These things are related to the evil angels that were cast down to earth.  You should most definitely read your Bible!  It’s got all the stories of ghosts and goblins in it already!

2 Chronicles 33:6 - And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

fred priceThis morning I was blessed to have caught a sermon by Pastor Fred Price Jr. on this very subject which give you the history of the Celtic Folklore and how the traditions of Samhain aka Halloween  are exactly what you need to STAY AWAY from.

Support of the Poor now a Tradition?

The American Halloween tradition of “trick-or-treating” probably dates back to the early All Souls’ Day parades in England. During the festivities, poor citizens would beg for food and families would give them pastries called “soul cakes” in return for their promise to pray for the family’s dead relatives. The distribution of soul cakes was encouraged by the church as a way to replace the ancient practice of leaving food and wine for roaming spirits. The practice, which was referred to as “going a-souling” was eventually taken up by children who would visit the houses in their neighborhood and be given ale, food, and money.  Read More on History.com

The Holiday Conundrum: Do you Celebrate Christmas?

happyholidays

This Season of good cheer, family and warm feelings has been a tradition for thousands of years.  In modern day times we are confused by the traditions of the past with the new found religions of today.  The reason to celebrate the season has been rationalized into several historical and modern day ideas.

During the Christ-mas season, some Christ-ians celebrate the birth of Christ, our savior Jesus Christ (Yeshua Hamachia).  Celebrating the Nativity of Jesus according to the gospels of Luke and Matthew is the blessing that many of us share.

But other Christians believe this holiday is a Pagan holiday.  Primarily because we do not know when Jesus was born as there was no date for the occasion.  But the context clues of the Nativity of Jesus as told by Luke and John tell a different story.  Jesus Christ could not have been born around December 25th because it would have been way too cold for the Shepherds to have been tending to their sheep outside, traveling, sleeping outside or anything near this description.   Because Palestine has extremely cold treacherous winters around this time of year.  Dr. Lorrain Day’s research on the subject is quite impressive;

It is beyond doubt that Christmas was originally a pagan festival. The time of the year and the ceremonies with which it is still celebrated, prove its origin.

Isis, the Egyptian title for the “queen of heaven,” gave birth to a son at this very time, about the time of the winter solstice. The term “Yule” is the Chaldee (Babylonian) name for “infant” or “little child.”

This pagan festival not only commemorated the figurative birthday of the sun in the renewal of its course, but it also was celebrated (on December 24) among the Sabeans of Arabia, as the birthday of the “Lord Moon.”

In Babylon, where the sun (Baal) was the object of worship, Tammuz was considered the incarnation of the Sun.

“In the Hindu mythology, which is admitted to be essentially Babylonian, this comes out very distinctly. There, Surya, or the Sun, is represented as being incarnate, and born for the purpose of subduing the enemies of the gods, who without such a birth, could not have been subdued.” Ibid pg 96

There are many other Christmas counterparts of the Babylonian winter solstice festival, such as: 1) candles lighted on Christmas eve and used throughout the festival season were equally lighted by the Pagans on the eve of the festival of the Babylonian god, to do honor to him, 2) the Christmas tree was equally common in Pagan Rome and Pagan Egypt. In Egypt that tree was the palm tree; in Rome it was the fir. The tree denoted the Pagan Messiah. Read More

We also know that although Jews do not believe that Yeshuah Hamachia (Jesus Christ) was the messiah, they still celebrate the same time of year for yet a different reason.

Ha·nuk·kah

noun /ˈKHänəkə/  /ˈhänəkə/

A lesser Jewish festival, lasting eight days from the 25th day of Kislev (in December) and commemorating the rededication of the Temple in 165 bc by the Maccabees after its desecration by the Syrians. It is marked by the successive kindling of eight lights

Yet again, some African Americans have chosen to celebrate a different set of modern day celebration with Kwanza.

Kwan·zaa

noun /ˈkwänzə/

A secular festival observed by many African Americans from December 26 to January 1 as a celebration of their cultural heritage and traditional values

So for at least 2000 years we have celebrated something for different reasons.  You will even see an occurrence of the tradition of cutting down a tree and decorating it in Jeremiah 10.  But we are warned not to celebrate idols.  The fact of the matter is, we as a society, have decided to celebrate good health, family, warm regards and we have a general consensus that the time should be one of gratitude and preparation for the New Year.  Somehow everything we do is a mixture of traditions.  They candles we light, the tree, gifting and worship.  I think the bottom line is today, we celebrate humanity and for the most part we are appreciative of our blessings from God.

169 May my cry come before you, LORD;
give me understanding according to your word.
170 May my supplication come before you;
deliver me according to your promise.
171 May my lips overflow with praise,
for you teach me your decrees.
172 May my tongue sing of your word,
for all your commands are righteous.
173 May your hand be ready to help me,
for I have chosen your precepts.
174 I long for your salvation, LORD,
and your law gives me delight.
175 Let me live that I may praise you,
and may your laws sustain me.
176 I have strayed like a lost sheep.
Seek your servant,
for I have not forgotten your commands.

Luke 15

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Parable of the Lost Sheep
1 Then all the tax collectors and the sinners drew near to Him to hear Him. 2 And the Pharisees and scribes complained, saying, “This Man receives sinners and eats with them.” 3 So He spoke this parable to them, saying:
4 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’ 7 I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.”
