The resurrection is everything! If God can bring the dead back to life, how much more easily can he heal broken hearts, and raise the spiritually dead back into communion with Him? Even my little boy Jude, age 3, has told me that he can pray to God, who he knows is his Father in heaven, who can help him not be sad anymore!
Before you react in knee-jerk fashion, and accuse me without cause, and without reading, and claim that “Halloween is Pagan” (Pagan meaning gentile, or “of the nations”, or heathen, polytheistic, non religious, or uncivilized), please read all of the following research, which I have conducted into this topic over 11 years.
I believe Halloween is a tradition of the Lost Tribes of Israel, specifically, the Feast of Trumpets and/or Rosh Hashanna, and is a prophetic rehearsal of the Christian resurrection of the dead.
The door is a symbol of Jesus, and the candy is a symbol of heaven.
I have identified 9 comparisons between Halloween and the Biblical Feast of the Lord, the Feast of Trumpets. Bear with me, the proof is all in this article. Last year, when I sent out this article, good meaning Christians accused me, “learn not the way of the heathen”. Excuse me, we all know the symbols of Halloween here in America, and I’m using them to teach about the symbols and ways of the Lord now.
I believe the meaning of 4 key Halloween symbols, are as follows:
The door is a symbol of Jesus.
The candy is a symbol of heaven.
The dressing up as skeletons, zombies, and ghouls are a symbol of those who will be resurrected.
The jack-o-lanterns, pumpkins carved out with a candle light in them, are a symbol of the dead being filled with the light of the Holy Spirit.
It’s called Halloween, because it’s the Hallowed Eve, or “Holy Evening”. The word “Hallowed” is a Biblical word, as in “Hallowed be thy name,” from the Lord’s prayer.
It’s practiced on the evening of the last day of the month, because in the Bible, the day begins at dusk. “And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.” from Genesis 1.
The Biblical Feast of Trumpets, or Rosh Hashanna, begins on the first day of the seventh month, on the new moon. Num 29:1, Lev 23:24
Rosh Hashanna is celebrated by Jews today, and usually falls in mid September, on the day of the new moon. The new moon is always the start of the month, on the Hebrew Lunar calendar. Therefore, every new month really begins on the evening, at dusk, of the last day of the month.
Halloween starts on the evening, dusk, on the Gregorian Calendar, on October 31st, which is when the kids go out door to door to get candy.
I believe this festival was practiced, in some related form, by the Ten Lost tribes of Israel who were exiled 720 years before Christ. Thus, they likely do not know who they are, nor do they even know the prophetic Christian symbology of the feast, since they did not yet have the New Testament to explain the symbols when they were exiled.
