ALL HALLOWS EVE

It’s Halloween and soon the streets will be filled with all sorts of little ghosts and goblins begging for candy.  Chances are they have no great need for the treats, but they love this tradition of dressing up and having their neighbors guess who they are.

This holiday has turned into a multi-million dollar industry for purveyors of sweets and scary masks, along with costumes for all ages.  It’s become another opportunity to spend money and party until the cows come home.

We are inundated with stories of zombies, ghoulish characters, death, blood and the ugly side of life.  People decorate their homes with skeletons, pumpkins and witches flying on broomsticks.  Leave it to us to commercialize evil.

All Hallows Eve – was the origin of this celebration.  This was the evening of All Saints
Day – a day to honor those who had died and gone to heaven.  That honorable day is dedicated to rejoicing over the second life in Christ.

Our world has become a very dark place.  There is evil all around us and many have become numbed to the tight grip it has.  We need to be constantly aware of the devil and his deceptive ways.  He coaxes our free will to do what he wants us to do.  He does it little by little – day by day – until he eventually makes just about anything acceptable.

We, as believers in the Triune God, know that we have the ammunition to defend ourselves from Satan.   He doesn’t have a chance if we allow the light of Christ to shine in us.

“No power of hell, no scheme of man
Could ever pluck me from His hand
Til He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I stand.”

Happy All Hallows Eve!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
