The Witching Hour
The witching hour is upon us. Halloween typically is seen as a fun time for children to go out in costumes,
getting candy from door to door. It's a time of black cats, pumpkins, witches, and skeletons.
A time to send your children out for fun.
Lets look at the origin of the holiday. "In those early days in England, there was another kind of witchcraft known as Druidism. The Druids were called “men of the oaks” and were a strange clan of men who dressed in white robes. The Druids worshipped Cernnunos, the “horned hunter of the night.“ Halloween was sacred to the Druids because their sun-god receded to the underworld on October 31st, which is why darkness increased and light decreased according to their reckoning.
As darkness set in on October 31st, the clan of Druids would put on their white robes and hoods. They would carry sickles and Celtic crosses as they began a torchlight procession. At the beginning of the procession, a male slave was killed and dragged by a rope fastened to his left ankle. The Druids would walk until they came to a house or a village where they shouted the equivalent of “trick or treat.” The treat was a slave girl or any female to be given to the Druids. If the people refused to SURRENDER a girl as a “treat”, blood was taken from the dead slave and used to draw a hexagram or six-pointed star on the door or wall of the village. Spirits of the “horned hunter of the night” were invoked by the Druids to kill someone in that house.
If the house or village gave a girl as a “treat”, the Druids put a pumpkin with a face carved in it in front of the door or gate of that place. Inside the pumpkin was a candle made of human FAT to keep evil spirits away.
Thus, the Jack-O-Lantern was and is a sign that you have cooperated with Satan.
The treats or female victims were taken to Stonehenge where they were raped and killed and then sacrificed
on the sacred bonfire until only glowing embers were left. The “bonfire” is the origin of the modern day bonfire. As a matter of luck for winter survival, all villagers were expected to use the glowing embers of the bonfire to light their hearths." (Quoted from from Last Trumpet ministries.)
The Catholic church later tried to keep people from celebrating this holiday, to no avail. So they created "All Saints Day" on the same day, to try to divert people from this pagan holiday. They used it as a day to celebrate the deaths of the saints. This did not stop the pagan version of the holiday.
Today, witches and Satanists continue to celebrate this day. The Wicca see October 31st
as the night that the dearly departed can be evoked from their graves, in spirit or physical form.
It is the only time of the year, they believe, that the curtains between the physical and spiritual worlds are torn apart...
so they can reach
those who have died, or those who aren't born yet. They honestly believe they are calling on the powers of nature and magic, but in reality...
they are calling on the
power of satan. Satan loves to deceive, doesn't he?
Satanists still use October 31st to carry out one of their most deadly of rituals, black mass. In this mass, they do it closely to the Catholic mass, to further defame the name of Jesus. Crosses and the Jewish Stars are used, in an upside down position. They usually kidnap a woman, and use her as the altar, in which to sacrifice either
animal or human babies upon. All of this is done to mock God, and invoke satan to do their bidding.
Human blood is drank, and they sometimes steal a Eucharist from a church. I can't even write about what they do with the Eucharist.
After finding all of this out, years ago...I can not celebrate Halloween. If you want to do a search on the subject, you will find all kinds of sites. Some from satanists, others from Christians. On searching this, I found one
where the professing satanists said to rent scary movies, take the kids trick or treating, but make sure you check their candy! Because as "the goat" (satan) looks out for his children, so should you look out for yours. Then after putting the "kids" to bed, make sure to do a ritual to satan at midnight. He then lists how and what rituals to do.
This comes from a "family man" satanist. He was the tamest satanist site that I found.
As for me and my house....WE WILL SERVE THE LORD.
