Some of you are in disbelief and have already put up your “shields” ready to refute the above information and may have already begun forming yours without reading any further. Please do spare just a few minutes to read the following information.

Both Christmas and Halloween are very evil feasts whose celebration roots from the days of old are an abomination unto YAH! They have nothing to do with YAH (a.k.a GOD) Almighty!!! They all started with King Nimrod who lived during Abraham’s time until he was killed by Shem. Nimrod started off well. He loved YAHUVEH/YAHWEH GOD Almighty but as time went on, he became so corrupted and evil before YAH. He actually build the Tower of Babel and Nineveh. He had a large Kingdom. Its name was: Babylon/Babylonia. He was an occult, a free mason, a wizard, etc.

When Nimrod who is also mentioned in the Book of Genesis died, he was deified as the sun-god whose name is now called Ba-al, Bel, Ra, etc in various countries. Each country has pagans who call him by a different name. His mother who was also referred to as his wife later became the female goddess who took after him and even brought the idea of deifying him. This is who the nativity in the Christmas story is about.

Reasons Halloween And Christmas Are Basically The Same Holiday and the SPIRITUAL IMPLICATIONS

Christmas, Easter, January New Year’s Day, and Halloween as well as some others I would not want to go into are all pagan days that were set up on the yearly calendars we use now. The Christians have even adopted them without understanding the roots of their faith. Most people around the world are  accustomed to celebrating them without understanding the spiritual implications. This is very sad.

It is my understanding the Canaanites of old, Jezebel and many others observed these days and this is why they were detestable before YAH (a.k.a GOD) Almighty. This is what Prophet Elijah and Prophet Elisha amongst others were fighting against.

 

Matthew 5:14-16 Names of God Bible (NOG)

14 “You are light for the world. A city cannot be hidden when it is located on a hill. 15 No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket. Instead, everyone who lights a lamp puts it on a lamp stand. Then its light shines on everyone in the house. 16 In the same way let your light shine in front of people. Then they will see the good that you do and praise your Father in heaven.

 

The following are the similarities:

  • Both days do not appear anywhere on YAH’S originally set Calendar.

 

  •  On both days, darkness is seen as re-curring theme. Darkness is associated with Satan throughout the Holy Scriptures. So why would a true Child of YAH want to observe such feasts with such associations.

Halloween is the darkest night of the year, spiritually. Christmas was positioned during the darkest part of the year and sadly, for many, that is where the similarities end.

 

  • Halloween was a “Christian” holiday (All Saint’s Soul’s Day) which became pagan. Christmas was a pagan holiday which became “Christian”.

 

  • During the Christmas season, there is a hope that is present, the hope of a newborn King. The hope of the Light that will enter this “dark” world. People shine their lights for all to see. It is easy to shine your light when the rest of the world shines a light and not at other times.

    During the Halloween season, it seems that all hope is gone. The world is turned over to the dark. People turn their lights off to keep people from seeing the hope that is within. When the world is spiritually dark, there may be consequences to shining your light and it can be easier to hide your light under a bushel to avoid persecution and conflict.

 

  • Some aspects of Messianic Jewish holy days were merged together with all the aspects of the paganist holidays in order to form these two days as well as others.

In the case of Halloween, they merged “All Souls’ (a.k.a Saints’) Day” with the “Jewish Feast of Sukkot/Succoth/Tabernacles/Harvest”.

In the case of Christmas, they merged the “feast of Saturnalia/Brumalia/Yuletide/Yulefest” with the “Jewish Feast of Sukkot” to form Christmas as we see it today.

 

  • Both Christmas and Halloween have been adopted by some, if not most Christians and even celebrated in some churches. Decorations are put up, parties are made and Church leaders write sermons in relation to them. This is an abomination unto YAH Almighty (a.k.a GOD). In fact, YAH does not and can not dwell in such places, especially where Halloween/Helloween/Samhain is celebrated. Such are called “ICHABOD”. “ICHABOD” means the glory of the YAH is gone.

 

  • Both Christmas and Halloween holidays have connections with the sun-worship (a.k.a Ba-al/Bel/Ra) and darkness. They somehow commemorate the winter solstice.

 

  • Both holidays have association with death.

 

  • Both Christmas and Halloween have associations with sexual immorality. They are both oddly sexualised (especially for ladies). In fact, in the days of old, there was an inhibited sex during the festival periods. This was one way in which the sun-god was being appeased so that long summers would come about or the sun would appear more often.

Halloween: When you’ve come across a “Sexy Strip of Bacon” costume at the store, you know it’s gone too far.

Christmas: Still waiting for these “Sexy Santa” lingerie sets to come with beards.

 

  • Both Christmas and Halloween are target mostly at children. In fact, a lot child sacrifice is carried out during these times of the year. Adult human sacrifices are also carried out.

 

  • There are certain symbolic items placed outside of people’s houses so as to keep away bad spirits, such as witches, death, etc. In terms of Christmas, wreathes are placed on the outside of doors and cookies placed at the bottom of chimneys, that is to say in the fire place. In terms of Halloween, various items are used, namely: hand and head skeletons, some food as well some other bloody items. These symbols were used by the people of the days of old to protect their children. This is all part of paganism.

 

  • Both Christmas and Halloween have evil symbolic figures namely, Santa Claus (who is actually Satan’s Claws) but also known Father Christmas as well as Samhain respectively.

The Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year. Traditionally, it is celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset. This is about halfway between the autumn equinox and winter solstice. It is one of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals, along with ImbolcBealtaine and Lughnasadh. Historically, it was widely observed throughout Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man. Similar festivals are held at the same time of year in other Celtic lands; for example the Brythonic Calan Gaeaf (in Wales), Kalan Gwav (in Cornwall), and Kalan Goañv (in Brittany).

Samhain is believed to have Celtic pagan origins and there is evidence it has been an important date since ancient times.

In the 9th century AD, the Western Christian Church shifted the date of All Saints’ Day from the month of May to 1 November, while 2 November later became All Souls’ Day. Over time, Samhain and All Saints’/All Souls’ merged to create the modern Halloween.[3]Historians have used the name ‘Samhain’ to refer to Gaelic ‘Halloween’ customs up until the 19th century.[4]

Since the later 20th century, Celtic neopagans and Wiccans have observed Samhain, or something based on it, as a religious holiday.[5] Neopagans in the Southern Hemisphere often celebrate Samhain at the other end of the year (about 1 May).

 

  • Both are exceptionally scary.

Halloween: Zombies, monsters, demons, the existential paranoia that no one is ever really who they appear to be and that death eventually comes for us all…

Christmas: Allegedly some fat, bearded old foreign man who is really into children sitting on his lap breaks into your home, eats your snacks, leaves you nice stuff that for all you know could have been stolen, exits without a trace and lets you live with the constant paranoia that he sees you when you’re sleeping and knows when you’re awake.

 

  • During both days, festive jumpers or other types of clothes can be worn to work, school, at home, etc and will often look foolish.

 

  • Both are largely based upon subtle threats.

Halloween: Behave accordingly or kids will play a mischievous trick upon you.

Christmas: Behave accordingly or Santa will break into your home and give you coal, which is useless because the fireplace is less than a foot away and is literally chock full of that shit.

  • Both holidays glamorize the bothering of neighbors.

Christmas: Carolers be like ♪ Jingle bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg/ The Batmobile lost its wheel and Joker is my dad ♫

Halloween: Kids be like ♫ Trick or treat, smell my feet/ give me something good to eat/ If you don’t, I’ll tell my father about this. ♪

 

  • People get SO turnt up decorating their homes for both occasions…

Halloween: Plastic skulls, glowing pumpkins, fog machines, Styrofoam headstones, tacky lights…

Christmas: Plastic santas, glowing trees, snow machines, Styrofoam snowmen, tacky lights…

 

In conclusion,  for many people, neither Halloween nor Christmas bear any spiritual significance. They are “fun” days for children to exercise their imagination.

As a follower of YAHUSHUA, especially one who works with children, we need to let our lights shine, in good times and spiritually dark times teaching them the things of YAHUVEH/YAHWEH GOD Almighty I pray that as you teach the children in your sphere of influence, that you don’t get caught up in the trappings of your surroundings, but that you continually shine YAHUVEH GOD’S LIGHT within you for others to see, and setting an example for the children, and others, who are watching you.

Then its light shines on everyone in the house. 16 In the same way let your light shine in front of people. Then they will see the good that you do and praise your Father in heaven.

OBSERVE YAH’S Originally Set Calendar! There are eternal blessings in this.

 

YAH (a.k.a GOD) also observes HIS own set calendar. HIS Holy Angels do the same.
