Dressing Up Like Demons

Dr. Stephen Phinney

Halloween is a demonic holiday ‘dressed up’ in demonic imagery that somehow justifies its roots in “All Saints Day” – a Catholic holiday celebrating the dead. While the Druids organically founded the tradition, the first organized Satan worshippers, the church through the ages adopted it as a “holy holiday.”


Folks, there is nothing “holy” about this demonic celebration. The Celtics used the event to scare off “ghosts” by dressing up like witches. They believed that summoning the dead to come forward from their graves was the best solution to combat the evil side of the dead. Let’s see here, calling forth demons to fight demons is a solution. Of course not. However, this became the foundation of civilized humans dressing like demons that dominate our culture today. Billions of dollars are made from costumes, movies, games, candy, and online trolling. In 2021, more money was made in the marketplace than in Christmas sales. Today, Halloween is a “cute” holiday, mostly for our children, to scare the “Hell” into people to get a bag of candy.

Many “believers” use this demonic holiday to promote Jesus Christ. While there is nothing wrong with using ridiculous celebrations to lead others to Christ, the challenge is most are doing exactly what the Catholic church did – blending the demonic imagery with Christian beliefs. Reader, this is called Apostasy.

Christ reveals that seducers are more dangerous enemies to the Church than persecutors. In this discourse, He mentions the appearance of false prophets three times.

The appearance of these seducers was the occasion of dividing the people into parties and factions, which made their ruin easier and speedier, and the sin of the many that were led aside by them helped to fill the measure. Secondly, it was a trial to the disciples of Christ, and therefore agreeable to their state of probation (trial) that they, which are perfect, may be made manifest. This is the message for the Bride—that we would be perfected by staying on our toes – resisting demonic imagery at every turn.
