Here are other cultures, and other versions of this feast.
In Mexico, they actually hid their observance of this feast until recently.
“In contrast to the Day of the Dead, overt worship of Santa Muerte (Dead Saint) remained hidden until the 19th century. When it surfaced, reaction was harsh, requiring the burning of any image found.”
Daniel also said that in the last days, knowledge would increase.
Halloween is also related to All Saint’s Day and the Celtic feast, Samhain.
Rosh Hashanna is, according to the Jews, the new year.
Samhain is also the new year to the Celts.
“Many scholars believe that it was the beginning of the Celtic year.”
The Gaelic custom of wearing costumes and masks, was an attempt to copy the spirits or placate them. In Scotland the dead were impersonated by young men with masked, veiled or blackened faces, dressed in white. Samhnag — turnips which were hollowed-out and carved with faces to make lanterns — were also used to ward off harmful spirits.
The Gaelic festival became associated with the Christian All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, and has hugely influenced the secular customs now connected with Halloween, a name first attested in the 16th century as a Scottish shortening of the fuller All-Hallows-Even. Samhain continues to be celebrated as a religious festival by some Neopagans.
Samhain is a Celtic festival. Some scholars say the Celts are one of the ten lost tribes of Israel.
The Celts are Israelites Under Another Name.
That would mean that the Celts, the Lost Israelites, likely had customs and feasts that are likely similar to the original Feasts of the Lord.
The main Biblical symbol that is missing in Halloween is the trumpet.
But there is a symbol of a Cornucopia, a “horn of plenty” in Northern America that is often associated with the fall feast known as Thanksgiving. The Cornucopia is a twisted horn, and originally said to be a goat’s horn, which is very similar to the ram’s horn, or Shofar, used in Rosh Hashanna.
Compare the google images of the shofar to images of the cornucopia.
In the wikipedia article on Halloween, they show that they knew this was a day the dead can come to life, which is a description of the resurrection, but historians don’t even know why kids dress up for Halloween, only theorizing that they did so to ward off evil spirits.
“The ancient Celts believed that the border between this world and the Otherworld became thin on Samhain, allowing spirits (both harmless and harmful) to pass through. The family’s ancestors were honoured and invited home while harmful spirits were warded off. It is believed that the need to ward off harmful spirits led to the wearing of costumes and masks. Their purpose was to disguise oneself as a harmful spirit and thus avoid harm.”
The Feasts of the Lord are commemorations, rehearsals, like a play.
The people are supposed to play out what is supposed to happen on this prophetic day.
On this day, Jesus will return, and raise the dead, and take them to be his bride, (changing them to immortality, like superheroes) and take them to heaven through himself, as he is the door.
To play that out, kids dress up as the dead, and go door to door (to Jesus) and get candy (heaven).
Trick or treating is a means by which the custom continues, because if you don’t play along, and give out candy to the kids, you get the trick instead, and get punished.
The original trickster was Jacob (Israel), who dressed up as his hairy brother Esau, to gain the birthright from the old Issac.
So, what does all of this mean?
I think this is cultural evidence that Americans and those who celebrate Halloween and similar festivals are the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel.
I think these festivals provide further confirming cultural evidence of the reliability of the Bible, and the reliability of the meaning of the symbols and themes of the rapture, as interpreted in light of the symbols of the Feast of Trumpets and Halloween.
I believe that God directly provides direct and continued inspiration to cultures who are willing to listen, and that these are the Feasts of the Lord, and that the Lord will have HIS feasts observed, period.
Jesus himself said at the prophetic event of his entry into Jerusalem, “the rocks would cry out” if the people did not.
Luke 19:37 When he came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen:
38 “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!”“Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”
39 Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”
40 “I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”
There is certainly a lot more that can be learned on this topic.
Who am I as to be so audatious or bold as to make these claims and associations?
I’m merely a guy who has been preaching about honest money for the past ten years, in a culture that is 99.9% deceived about the nature of money. I’m used to teaching things that should be common sense, but are unknown, or hidden.
What does this article have to do with silver? Good question.
It’s my hope that this article reinforces the reality of the truths of Scripture. That the Israelites were not just a people in an old dusty book, but that we are their descendants, and that we have unknowingly kept to certain traditions that prove that to be true. I hope that you find that the Bible is a book of truths, that God is real.
After the resurrection, what kind of life will it be? God will wipe away all evil, and stop fraud and theft on a national and institutionalized scale, so that people will be able to enjoy the fruit of their labors. (Isaiah 65) Thus, there will not be any such thing as paper money fraud in God’s world. Instead, there will be silver, and gold.
If we are the people of the Bible, and if the Bible is real, then we ought to take it seriously. I do.
