Evil and Wickedness. Part-Four.

Ghosts and communing with the Dead.

Do you know there are ghosts, Jesus mentions them in the New Testament. But talking to the dead on any kind of level is a forbidden practice by God’s standards. What was done in the past, now must not be returned to.

‘All Hallows is about the power of God, through His Son Jesus to crush the power of Satan in our lives. That is only for those who want to seek having Faith and those who are living by faith in the work of Jesus on the cross for us and the power of His resurrection from the grave.

Evil and Wickedness. Part-Three.

Bribery.

At the best of times this is not a good idea or place to be in and yet it is very much part of the ‘All Hallows/Halloween event. We traditionally know it as ‘Trick and Treat.’ You basically give us a gift or the mob will do something nasty to you.

Yes there is a kind of fun children’s game here, but there is also a serious lesson for us to learn that as adults it becomes an ever present reality.

All Hallows. Part-One.

All Hallows or Halloween has always been a big event in Ireland, even though Christianity has enveloped it. October 31st.

Many new features have been added from the U.S., like the toffee apples and the pumpkin. But essentially everything else is the same, with black men and trick n’ treating.

But the origins of this festival goes back to Celtic times, when like other northern European people this was the New Year. The festival was the celebration of cattle purification through fire, while a gate portal was believed open between the dead and the living. A chance for dead ancestors to visit their living relatives.

Some of this Celtic religion is now adapted and employed in to modern witchcraft or Wicca and so there are darker elements at work.  Leviticus 19:31,  Galatians 5:19-21.
