LIGHT & LIFE

Halloween is a celebration of darkness and death. Halloween promotes fear and terror. Halloween has its roots in the occult. This is contrary to what the Bible teaches us.

 

From the Bible we know the Jesus Christ is the Light of the world. John 8:12 - When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life”.

 

The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ is Life and the giver of Life. And even more, Jesus Christ is the Resurrection and the Life. John 11:25 - Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.    

 

We also know from the Bible that fear is not of God. 2 Timothy 1:7 - For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

 

The culture of our world is so contrary to the Kingdom of God. We live in a world that rejects the Word of God and embraces alternate "truths". We live in a world that promotes darkness and wickedness over light and goodness. 1 Timothy 4 warns The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Some anti-Biblical things are obvious while others are subtle and covert. We need the discernment of the Holy Spirit more than ever.

 

The world needs the light and life of Christ Jesus. May the Lord intensify His power in and through our lives.
