Hallow Means Holy
~^~Hallow Means Holy~^~
"John 8:32 and 1 John 1:6-7"
I asked the Holy Spirit for in this poem to guide me
In praying he whispered; that ye shall know the truth
and the truth shall make you free
I was led to seek in the bible dictionary
Truly a wink from God for to give clarity
The word "Hallow" means to set apart for holy use,
To make holy,as in Luke 11:2
...Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy name
This is to bring honour to Him and proclaim
How much honour do you give Him?
If you choose to celebrate like the pagans
Halloween is a pagan festival
Not a holiday, for it's roots are evil
Time after time God warns against evil
For us to give no place to the devil
The devil is a liar ! Do not be deceived
Let God's word manifest to all who believe
In earlier years even I was blind
But year by year He renews my mind
Even earlier poems against halloween
Doesn't reflect the passion now inside me
Praise, Honor, and Glory....
"Hallowed" is for the Father whom is worthy
I previously had wrote "Strangers Candy"
And..."Halloween Is Not My Thing"
However ; with new awareness
This poem is to bring Glory to My King!

1 John 1:5-7
5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

The truth about Halloween http://www.jeremiahproject.com/culture/halloween.html
As believers, we are called to "Test everything. Hold on to the good. Avoid every kind of evil. [1 Thessalonians 5:21-22] Who can deny that virtually all of the symbols of Halloween are evil? Witches, monsters, ogres, vampires, ghosts, ghouls, goblins, devils and demons all portray evil. Christians are to "... have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them." [Ephesians 5:11] It is also among the signs of the last days that many will depart from the faith giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of demons (I Tim. 4:1).
Below is a share from another Sister in Christ from the word of GOD
Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) Philippians 3:17-19
With the above said, I will not be on your doorstep for Halloween and it has nothing to do with legalism. It would break my heart to break His. And so, if you want to know where I will be this Halloween, you can find me 'wherever He leads'.
