October 31st is the Halloween the biggest occultic pagan satanic holy day where Satan is the author of Halloween .Children and many young people disguise themselves, paint their faces, dress up in ugly scary costumes, and go door to door collecting treats or candy and playing tricks on people , and the adults often decorate their houses with ghostly figures, Cobwebs ,carve scary faces on pumpkins, and put candles in them to create “Jack-O-Lanterns often such people forget that Satan is the father of liars. Satan and its demons are working relentlessly to corrupt, to deceive others to create confusion and division, discouragement, to take the people away from God or to manipulate us and hinder our work for God and the growth of our faith distracted us with evil imaginations and evil occult practices from growing in the Lord and serving Him, to doubt God's Word in perverted interpretations to present false gospel by twisted truth, to influence worldly way instead of godly ways, to justify their false doctrines, to break the commandments and laws of God.
The statistics says that on Halloween night there is a tremendous increase of all kinds of violent crimes, drug crimes, kidnappings, sex related crimes etc.
Many Christians are still lost.Where in the bible it says that Christians to be a part of devil celebration? God commands us to SEPARATE from the sinful world and not to help them by befriending their wickedness. The simple fact that Halloween is associated with heathen worldly sources proves that they are of the Devil. They do not realize what they are doing has its roots in witchcraft and the practices of false religions. It reflects wickedness, rebellion. In fact, many Christians defend themselves saying they take part in Halloween party as a way to express their faith. But is this true? Those who defend and promote Halloween want others to join them in their often rebellion-laced decision. Most professed Christians have no fear of God (Matt 7:21-23) which the Bible says is a sign of an unregenerate mind (Romans 3:18) a rebellious and stiff-necked people prone to sin. Halloween is celebrated by heathen people who didn't know the God. It carries a pagan significance and there is no Christian significance .We are to detest all that is evil (Romans 12:9) but sadly we approve or tolerate things that God hates instead of exposing or Confronting Evil. God wants us to hate evil and cling to what is good .As true believers, we must stand uncompromisingly against the works of flesh, darkness and works of Satan. There are many wicked people who keep one foot in Gods word and another foot in devils world and enjoy everything in the world like heathens yet they say they are Christians. We are reminded in1 Corinthians 10:21 that Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.
Many people are bold, proud and unashamed of their sin have become desensitized to sin and have lost their senses to differentiate between good and evil during the end times. Some even justify their disobedience to the Word of God by twisting the Scriptures to justify their lifestyle and preach the doctrine of devils by preaching the false gospel. The wicked people choose to sin against God and then God allows their sinful desires to control them. These wicked people refuse God's truth, prefer lie and justify their wrong doings. Some Christians believe that Halloween is simply a bunch of harmless fun or it’s a celebration to dress up in costumes or it’s an occasion to play tricks and treats or candies but it’s a Satan's lie. How can children having fun are related to demonic activity. This is the deception that Satan has used to cover our eyes. Some parents encourage their children to participate in the world of demons Instead of teaching godly values surrounding themselves with what is good and to "walk as children of light" (Eph. 5:8) we are exposing our children’s to unfruitful works of darkness. Satan loves Halloween because it glamorizes the powers of darkness, drawing little kids into his kingdom. NO true Christian can serve two masters. There are many pretend to be godly men and women and appear to be solid Christian believer .However, their "fruit" eventually reveals them to be the opposite of what they claimed to be and they a form of godliness. In this, they follow the example of Satan, "And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve" (2 Corinthians 11:14-15).In 1st John, Chapter 2:3 and we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments. If someone claims, "I know God," but doesn't obey God's commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth. But those who obey God's word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.
Satan persuades some Christians that they can still hold to God's truth while indulging a sin because Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men. It teaches us to say 'No' to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good" (Titus 2:11-14).
The Bible tells us that we are to be a good example, showing others the love of Christ through our behavior and life styles. We should do all we can to bring others into God's Kingdom and never do anything that would cause a person to stumble in his Christian walk. You need to choose this day that you will serve. You can serve God and ask Him to clean up your life, or you can continue serving your own fleshly desires which leads to indirectly serving devil. (1 Tim 4:12, John 13:15). Christians must not give place to the devil by participating in the TRICK-OR-TREAT RITUAL because this ritual symbolizes human sacrifice and is an abomination in the sight of God. Just because one say that they do not worship Satan, God does not give them right to train their children to serve devil one night out of the year in the name of fun, candy or nasty costumes. The Bible commands us to, "Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. But we instead of training our children in the ways of God we teach them the ways of Devil.
Some of the people may not accept what I have written because the bible says “The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. 1 Corinthians 2:14”.
Scripture warnings: The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. 2 Corinthians 4:4
When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. Let no one be found among you who…practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium, or spiritist or who consults the dead. Deuteronomy 18:9-11
'I will set my face against the person who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute himself by following them, and I will cut him off from his people. Leviticus 20:6

You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord’s Table and of the table of demons. 1 Corinthians 10:21
Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. Galatians 5:19-21.
But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death." Revelation 21:8
Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. Jeremiah 10:2

Do not be deceived: "Bad company corrupts good morals." 1 Corinthians 15:33
