Christian Stories For the Halloween Season
No Fear Here!
A Christian Halloween – Brought To You By Matney Woodard
Unless you live a very sheltered life, it is almost impossible to avoid being influenced by the Halloween season. It has become one of the biggest holidays for retailers, and a huge money maker for Hollywood. Scary movies, witchcraft, demonic activity, the occult are all being promoted by the media, entertainment and pop culture. All of these in some way introduce fear into people’s lives. Whether its fear of injury, the dark, monsters, demons, Hell or even death, that fear can undermine faith. And as we see in the life of Job, fear can remove God’s hedge of protection around a Believer.
In the past, Christian leaders have simply refused to even acknowledge the existence of Halloween, or held Fall Festivals as an alternative celebration to Halloween, and attempted to remove any evil influences. This may do some good. But its hard to shelter children from everything.
My parents took a different approach. They acknowledged Halloween, but made it clear that I had nothing to fear. When Jesus ascended to Heaven, he had defeated the devil. (Colossians 2:15) The only weapons Satan has now is deception and fear. You can enforce his defeat in your life by refusing to fear and ignoring his lies. You have Power of Attorney to use the name of Jesus to overcome everything that has a name. (Philippians 2:9-10)
Fear is the opposite of faith. Think about how many times the phrase, “Fear not!” appears in the Bible. When you trust God to take care of you, there is absolutely no reason to be afraid. How can you be afraid when you know that the Creator of the universe has your back? How can you buckle under pressure when the Holy Spirit is inside of you? When you know that God’s Angels, His Ministering Spirits, are working night and day to protect you, why worry? With God’s Word, His wisdom, which is loaded with promises and examples of faith in action to inspire you, why should fear ever be an issue?
The root of ALL fear is doubt or unbelief in God. It is your faith that pleases God. In Revelation 21:8, the fearful and unbelieving are listed with the murderers and sexually immoral who experience the second death. You do not want any part of unbelief or fear.
The following content has been selected for the Halloween season. Use the following stories and content to build your faith and refuse to let fear take root in your life, or in the life of any children in your circle of influence.
