The pagan festival of Samhain is what we call Halloween, all hallows eve; meaning hallowed evening. The custom was to dress up as Saints and go door to door. For satan worshippers this is the most important day of the year. Samhain ia a celebration of the end of harvest season, basically the end of summer. Supposedly on this day the souls of the dead could mingle with the living.
This was another pagan practice that was brought into the church and a christian twist was put on it, making it easy for the conversion of pagans into the christian faith. It was also believed following this celebration on November 1; demons, witches and evil spirits roamed the earth plaguing mankind with their evil pranks. The people would disguise themselves as witches and demons to avoid the pranks.
So much for superstitions, the truth of the matter is evil spirits are always present; Satan never sleeps capturing mankind in his web of deceit is his constant goal. He is a great imposter and can impersonate anyone, even the loved one who you miss and desire to see or hear from after they have departed this life. The living know that they shall die, but; the dead know nothing, neither do they have part in anything that is done under the sun.
There will be a day of the dead when all who sleep in Jesus will hear his voice and come forth from the grave, this is the first resurrection; eternal life with Jesus the Christ and God the Father. However, only those who have surrendered their hearts, who walk in his statues, and obey his Holy Spirit before their life journey has ended will reap this reward; many will be called but few will be chosen.
Beware of the deceiver, he is a roaring lion seeking whom he may destroy; he is relentless in his pursuit. while celebrating certain events on the surface may seemingly be harmless, there just maybe pitfalls beneath the surface that lead to the enemy of mans soul. The word says ” study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed rightly dividing the word of truth.
Lean not unto your own understanding but be lead by the Holy Spirit in all things. Those who fall prey to the enemy will also come forth from the grave, the second resurrection; they will share in the reward of the Evil one. Their day will be one of total extinction, the old earth will pass away and a new earth born in which evil will never rise again.
