It was a general practice of the Christianized Roman Empire and the church at Rome to convert the pagans within the empire as quickly and on as large a scale as possible.
Ever since the time of Constantine, who made catholicism the state religion, the Roman Emporors realized how essential it was to have a unified empire, where as many as possible would have one mind. The civil and religious leaders saw how important it was for the for the sake of unity to allow only one religion within the Roman realm.
It became a state policy to force all non-Christians to accept the orthodox faith. The conquered pagans had a profound influence on the affairs of the church.
These pagans brought with them many pagan practices and celebrations. Halloween Essay was merely one of many. The pagans were fervent in clinging to their past ceremonies and observed them openly, yet they were supposed to have been converted to Christianity.
Now notice a prophecy found in Daniel 7:25 “He shall speak great words against the most high, and shall wear out the saints of the most high and think to CHANGE TIMES AND LAWS…
Satan will do anything to pervert the truth. Now if a pagan practice or festival could not be forbidden, the church felt, then let it be tamed. So the church persuaded its followers to TRANSFER the devotion of these former heathen from their gods to the Christian God.
By changing these pagan festivals (Halloween among others) to “Christian Festivals” the “church” was being used to change times and laws. Let’s take a look at some of these changes;
1. Yahweh begins the days at sunset; the church has changed it so the world begins the day in the middle of the night.
2. Yahweh begins the week at the end of the 7th Day Sabbath; the world begins the workweek in the middle of the night, the second day of the week.
3. Yahweh begins the year in the early spring. But ancient heathen Rome began the year in the middle of winter.
Yahweh gave us a set of Holidays with great meaning (showing us His plan of salvation for man) to be observed throughout the year. The church has put on a heedless and deceived world, a totally different set of holidays such as Christmas, New Years, Easter and Halloween and others…
Does Yahweh say that it is all right to observe the pagan festivals as long as we are honoring Him? Notice carefully what he said to the Israelites before they entered the Promised Land;
Deuteronomy 12:29-AV When Yahweh thy Elohim shall cut off the nations from before thee, where thou goest to possess them, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their land;
30 Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them, after that they are destroyed from before thee; and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise.
31 Thou shalt not do so to Yahweh thy Elohim: for every abomination to Yahweh, which he hateth, have they done to their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.
32 Whatever thing I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add to it, nor diminish from it.
It is obvious that the world of today is having its trials and tribulations. It is obvious that the professing Christians have been decieved into following pagan customs and in reality have been serving false gods. What will the True Believer do?
Deuteronomy 4:30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to Yahweh thy Elohim, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
31 (For Yahweh thy Elohim is a merciful Elohim;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.
“After one’s own birthday, the two major Satanic holidays are Walpurgisnacht (May 1st) and Halloween (or All Hallow’s Eve).” The Satanic Bible by Anton Levey page 96, section on Religious Holidays.
