Defeated at Calvary, Light overcame darkness and evil. That’s why the Son came as the sacrificial LAMB.
All my life, there were many questions that were given to the child by incomplete answers. I believed in Angels …… Because I had seen them. But I also believed in demons for the same reason.
“Look always to the LIGHT’ was the ONE very helpful guidepost for a child with vivid imagination searching for TRUTH in a world of so much fiction and rising materialism and marketing of significant remembrances of faith.
The fun of Santa at remembrance of Christ’s Birth and hidden Easter eggs at Easter -the tragic and sad
reminder of His sacrificial death, began to erode what the coming of the LIGHT into this broken world as one of us was all about.
Fun for children, fun for families and money for shopkeepers and business interests.
‘Don’t destroy the joy of these commercial money-making endeavours by ever asking serious religious questions. ‘
Discussions about the difference between a personal
relationship with a Holy God and OTHER religions was never discussed.
The wonderful world of childhood imagination should be nurtured and encouraged. Magic, witches, vampires, fairies all the wonderful fantasy stories of childhood even Santa and the Easter Bunny……..BUT and this a big BUT…….childhood fantasy and fun must be overlaid by responsible educators and parents telling all children about the difference between imagination and what is TRUTH.
Do you believe in Angels and demons?. Have you
Ever seen them? THE WORD written is a Handbook of disclosure on these matters.
Sadly, a lot of cultures have incorporated into their lives Halloween which if kept as non intrusive fun is not harmful.
But if young ones are encouraged to believe that not just dressing up but trying to engage with this form of darkness is OK. we should not be surprised if darkness begins to filter into their young creative minds.
Adults, we all should be aware of angels and demons and make sure we have happy HOLY Seasons but STAND absolutely for the TRUTH we KNOW in the midst of it ALL.
A tremendous battle was won on a blood-soaked cross so long ago. This story needs to be fully known personally and then shared with the whole world. Begin in your own home. Really KNOW unequivocally that JESUS CHRIST IS LORD GOD ALMIGHTY OVER EVERYTHING.
Knowing this truth is worth more than all the money and success this world offers.
Live gloriously today!
An excellent and very important post sister. Too many in this world are duped by the soft sell of Satanic fakery at Halloween.
So many people think Halloween is fun without knowing the truth about the dark side . Well written Faye , you made my heart sing Praise God for your Blog .
Hugs to you for shining light on the darkness, which will seep into every crack left open.
