Where Did Halloween Originate?

Back in the 1700’s, the Catholic Church built a chapel to honor the saints on the eve of All Saints Day, which is November first. The word “Halloween” means “hallowed or holy evening” and was meant to be a holy time to meditate and prepare to honor the saints on October 31, the eve of All Saint’s Day. 

But many enemies of the Catholic Church made fun of them for this, especially the Druids of France. They were sun worshippers and had many strange ceremonies related to witches, warlocks, demons, the moon, fire and bones. Since the Druid’s New Year began on November first, Halloween was their New Year’s Eve. Halloween has always involved demonology.

One of their favorite tricks or pranks was to deface church property, especially on the eve of All Saint’s Day, Halloween. So, when your child innocently looks up into the eyes of your neighbor and says “Trick or Treat,” that little one is echoing the days when the Druids defaced property—thus the term “trick”…unless they are given a “treat.”

In the early years of the settlement of America, Halloween was just a fun time, a time of goodies and pranks. Any religious connection to All Saint’s Day was soon forgotten.

Halloween has now become a satanic holiday and is the day for widespread cult activities. As many as one out of four missing children are related to human sacrifice by cult activists. Do you let your little ones trick-or-treat by themselves? You know that you wouldn’t…and you know why. Hundreds of children are snatched every year on Halloween by pedophiles and cultists.

Before we allow anyone to glorify Satan and his holiday, let’s examine a few “Satanic Facts.”

Satan is a highly intelligent being, opposed to God, seeking to foil His plans by leading people away from God and alienating people from Him.

His names and titles describe his personality: the accuser, dragon, enemy, Beelzebub (lord of the flies), serpent, tempter, wicked one, slanderer, false accuser, etc. The very name “Satan” means adversary.

He has been cast out of heaven – Luke 10:18
He tempts God’s people – John 13:2
He seeks to exploit your weaknesses – I Corinthians 7:3-5
He favors the lie that good can be obtained by wrong – Genesis 3:4+
He knows the Word of God…but twists it – Matthew 4:1-11
He hinders God’s work and His workers – I Thessalonians 2:18
He can cause physical illness   II Corinthians 12:7
He works via demons – Matthew 12:24+, Revelation 12:7+
He takes pleasure in deceptions – I Timothy 3:6+, II Timothy 2:26
He tells lies – and is the father (author) of lies – John 8:32, 44
He blinds people to the truth – II Corinthians 4:4
He steals the Word from hearts – Matthew 13:19
He lays traps and snares for men – I Timothy 3:7
He oppresses – Acts 10:38
He deceives the nations – Revelation 20:8
He desires to destroy you – Luke 22
He preys on weak Christians – I Timothy 3:6
He is subject to God’s restrictions – Job 1, Luke 4:6, II Thessalonians 2:7
He will control the Anti-Christ – Revelation 13:2 and I Thessalonians 2:9
He is cunning – II Corinthians 2:11, Ephesians 6:11
He can perform certain miracles – II Thessalonians 2:9
He sows weeds among the wheat – Matthew 13:24 +
He promotes false doctrines – I Timothy 4
His hostility toward God is verified by his end-time activities – Revelation 12:13+

But Satan’s end is certain, for he is cast into the bottomless pit for ever (Revelation 20:10, Romans 16:20) God verifies His attitude toward Satan’s evil by casting him into the lake of fire.

We can overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb (Revelation 12:11), for the Cross of Calvary is the basis for his final and total defeat (Hebrews 2:14 and I Peter 3:18-22). 

And speaking of “trick-or-treat”… Satan’s best trick is to convince people he doesn’t exist! Let’s teach our children the truth about Halloween, Satan’s Holy Day, for “greater is He that is within us than he (Satan) that is in the world” (I John 4:4).
