Did You Know

The Apostle Paul states in 1 John 4 verse 6: “Little Children, let no one deceive you”. The children reference is referring to us as Children of God, so it is speaking to all of us as followers of Our Lord and Our Friend.

Did you know, the story of Halloween?

Halloween came into being during the first century as a day of remembrance for those who suffered martyrdom for their belief in and faithfulness to Jesus Christ. Such was the large number of martyrs, in those times, that a day was appointed to honor them and was called ‘All Saints Day’.

The evening proceeding this day was ‘All Hallows Eve’, which later, in the forth century, became known as Halloween {or Holy evening}.

Although Halloween had a very legitimate beginning, unfortunately through the passage of time it has deteriorated into an event with very negative, and even sister overtones. Halloween generally connotes things that are dark and evil.

Our Lord and Our Friend forbids us to be involved, with anything honoring the powers of darkness, because these things oppose Him.

“Little children let no one deceive you”.

God Bless.
