On October 31 in various places many will celebrate what is commonly known as Halloween, all saints day, or day of the dead. This is mostly a pagan practice which dates back centuries. It’s history is shadowed by things associated with darkness, however; today it is celebrated as a time for children to dress up in costume and go from house to house requesting candy or treats. If by chance you have no candy or treats, you just might get a trick played on you. Everyday in someway we are being desensitized to the darkness which is consuming our lives.
It is said the greatest deception perpetrated on mankind is believing the evil one (Satan) does not exist. My question to you is, if you can believe in ultimate good, why is it so hard to believe in ultimate evil? Through the many avenues of media we have turned off our senses to the world we live in which is rapidly changing into a very dark place. The prince of darkness has staked his claim and is capturing the hearts of many through tv we watch, books we read, and laws that govern us.
Violence is rampant, we are losing our humanity; no value for life, we so easily take that which we have no power to give. Our children have become prey, spaces that were once considered zones of safety for them are disappearing. Every mother worries when her child leaves home if this will be the last hug or goodbye. The beauty of our world is being hidden under a basket, seldom do we hear the news of love and kindness being shown, we are being force feed; greed, popularity, selfishness, violence and destructive lifestyles as a normal way of life.
Mankind fell with the deception of our first parents, today our world is beginning to resemble the world in the days of Noah, Sodom & Gomorrah and Nineveh; all which were destroyed for their wickedness. We were warned to not fall prey to the prince of darkness, 1Peter 5:8 says” Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour”. Jesus tells us “I saw Satan fall like lightening from Heaven”. It is time to awake from sleep, take the blinders off; guard our eyes, ears, hearts and minds for the devil is real; not a figment of the imagination.
The enemy is always looking for his next victim to infect with evil and turn them from the love of the Father, don’t let it be you// We are told to resist the devil and he will flee from you, Jesus is our helper and will give us strength to stand against the temper; we can be victorious through Him.
