Halloween is fast approaching. If you are a Christian who still believes that Halloween is simply a day of fun in which you dress up in costumes and go door to door with your children so that they can collect some candy, you are about to discover the dark truth about Halloween. When time allows, please consider prayerfully coming before God as you listen to former witch, Carol Kornaki, as she give an in depth explanation of the occult roots behind the reason for doing things such as, trick or treating, carving pumpkins, dressing up in costumes, and many other things. If you do, you will never be able to look at Halloween the same again!

As Christians, if we truly love God with all of our heart, we should have the desire to turn away from everything that appears to be evil. (1 Thessalonians 5:22) And when it comes to Halloween, you are about to discover that it is all evil!

Here is an excerpt from her presentation:

“The dress up is what the Druids used to do. You dress up the children, that’s what the Druids do…they dress up and walk around in ghoulish outfits. They go from house to house requesting, “Trick or treat.” It is a mantra that is a repetitious comment that is made. What the kids are doing today when they go out dressed up, is they’re imitating the Druids…they’re taking part of  Samhain’s holiday. You can’t fix it folks…you can’t scrub it down. This is what they’re doing. Little Christian children are walking around dressed up, chanting, “Trick or treat,” partaking in the holiday of the eve of the god of the dead. There’s no getting around it.”

“Ladies and gentlemen let me tell you something about Halloween; you can’t redeem it. People, when it comes, you shouldn’t even act like it’s there. If the churches choose to make a sanctuary or a refuge so that you can come out of the activity out there, and we come into the church, it should not be referred to as a Halloween party, and the children should not be dressing up as anything not even shepherds, not even angels, because the minute you start, you take on the festival!”

“You’re dressing your kids up and you’re celebrating their holiday. It shouldn’t even be recognized. It shouldn’t even be payed attention to. It is an evil, evil holiday!”

NOTE: Please do not consider this video series as being an endorsement of Carol Korkacki, because only God knows if she is still on that straight and narrow path that leads to Him, or if she has veered off course and may now be involved in something unbiblical, as some Christians sadly have done, and are continuing to do, these days. The only reason that I am sharing the above Playlist of videos with you is because there are far too many Christians who are participating in this holiday when they should not be, and Carol shares a lot of information that makes it abundantly clear that we as Christians are to glorify God in all that we do, and therefore we are not to take part in anything that even has a hint of evil. And as Carol has stated in her presentation, “It [Halloween] is an evil, evil holiday!”

GOD’S WORD CONCERNING SORCERY AND WITCHCRAFT

“Do not allow a sorceress to live.  Whoever sacrifices to any god other than the LORD must be destroyed.” (Exodus 22:18,20)

“Be careful to do everything I have said to you.  Do not invoke the name of other gods; do not let them be heard on your lips.” (Exodus 23:13)

“When the LORD finished speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai, He gave him the two tablets of the Testimony, the tablets of stone inscribed by the finger of God.  When the people saw that Moses was so long in coming down from the mountain, they gathered around Aaron and said,  “Come, make us gods who will go before us.  As for this fellow Moses who brought us up out of Egypt, we don’t know what has happened to him.”  Aaron answered them,  “Take off the gold earrings that your wives, your sons and your daughters are wearing and bring them to me.  So all the people took off their earrings and brought them to Aaron.  He took what they handed him and made it into an idol cast in the shape of a calf, fashioning it with a tool.  Then they said,  “These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.”  When Aaron saw this, he built an altar in front of the calf and announced,  “Tomorrow there will be a festival to the LORD.”  So the next day the people rose early and sacrificed burnt offerings and presented fellowship offerings.  Afterward they sat down to eat and drink and got up to indulge in revelry.  Then the LORD said to Moses,  “Go down, because your people whom you brought up out of Egypt have become corrupt.  They have become quick to turn away from what I commanded them and have made themselves an idol cast in the shape of a calf.  They have bowed down to it and sacrificed to it and have said,  ‘These are your gods, O Israel, who have brought you up out of Egypt.’ (Exodus 32:1-8)

“Any Israelite or any alien living among them who eats any blood — I will set my face against that person who eats blood and will cut him off from his people.  For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life.  Therefore I say to the Israelites,  “None of you may eat blood, nor may an alien living among you eat blood.” (Leviticus 17:10-12)

“Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molech, for you must not profane the name of your God.  I am the LORD.” (Deuteronomy 18:21)

“Do not practice divination or sorcery.” (Leviticus 19:26b) 

“Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them.  I am the LORD your God.” (Leviticus 19:31)

“I will set My face against the person who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute himself by following them, and I will cut him off from his people.  Consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am the LORD your God.  Keep My decrees and follow them; I am the LORD, who makes you holy.” (Leviticus 20:6-8)

“A man or woman who is a medium or spiritist among you must be put to death.  You are to stone them; their blood will be on their own heads.” (Leviticus 20:27)

“You saw no form of any kind the day the LORD spoke to you at Horeb out of the fire.  Therefore, watch yourselves very carefully, so that you do not become corrupt and make for yourselves an idol, an image of any shape, whether formed like a man or a woman, or like any animal on earth or any bird that flies in the air, or like any creature that moves along the ground or any fish in the waters below.  And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars — all the heavenly array — do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the LORD your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven.” (Deuteronomy 4:15-19)

“Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the LORD is God in heaven above and on the earth below.  There is no other.” (Deuteronomy 4:39)

“Destroy completely all the places on the high mountains and on the hills and under every spreading tree where the nations you are dispossessing worship their gods.  Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and burn their Asherah poles in the fire; cut down the idols of their gods and wipe out their names from those places.  You must not worship the LORD your God in their way.  But you are to seek the place the LORD your God will choose from among all your tribes to put His Name there for His dwelling.” (Deuteronomy 12:2-5) 

“If a prophet, or one who foretells by dreams, appears among you and announces to you a miraculous sign or wonder, and if the sign or wonder of which he has spoken takes place, and he says,  “Let us follow other gods” (gods you have not known) “and let us worship them,” you must not listen to the words of that prophet or dreamer.  The LORD your God is testing you to find out whether you love Him with all your heart and with all your soul.  It is the LORD your God you must follow, and Him you must revere.” (Deuteronomy 13:1-4a)

“When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there.  Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead.  Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you.  You must be blameless before the LORD your God.  The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination.  But as for you, the LORD your God has not permitted you to do so.  The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own brothers.  You must listen to him.” (Deuteronomy 18:9-15)

“The LORD said to me:  “What they say is good.  I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him.  If anyone does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name, I myself will call him to account.  But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded him to say, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, must be put to death.”  You may say to yourselves,  “How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the LORD?”  If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken.  That prophet has spoken presumptuously.  Do not be afraid of him.”                  (Deuteronomy 18:17-22)

“Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30)

“In the synagogue there was a man possessed by a demon, an evil spirit.  He cried out at the top of his voice,  “Ha!  What do You want with us, Jesus of Nazareth?  Have You come to destroy us?  I know who You are–the Holy One of God!”  “Be quiet!”  Jesus said sternly.  “Come out of him!”  Then the demon threw him to the ground before them all without injuring him.  All the people were amazed and said to each other,  “What is this teaching?  With authority and power He gives orders to evil spirits and they come out!”  “Moreover, demons came out of many people, shouting,  “You are the Son of God!”  But He rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew He was the Christ.” (Luke 4:33-36,41)

“If you hold to My teaching, you are really My disciples.  Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31,32)

“So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (John 8:36)

“Jesus answered,  “I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)

“Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who had a spirit by which she predicted the future.  She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling.  This girl followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting,  “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.”  She kept this up for many days.  Finally Paul became so troubled that he turned around and said to the spirit,  “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of  her!”  At that moment the spirit left her.  When the owners of the slave girl realized that their hope of making money was gone, they seized Paul and Silas and dragged them into the marketplace to face the authorities.” (Acts 16:16-19)

“Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.” (Acts 17:11)

“Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said:  “Men of Athens!  I see that in every way you are very religious.  For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.  Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you.  “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands.  And He is not served by human hands, as if He needed anything, because He Himself gives all men life and breath and everything else.  From one man He made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and He determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.  God did this so that men would seek Him and perhaps reach out for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us.  For in Him we live and move and have our being.”                        (Acts 17:22-28a)

“Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed.  They would say,  “In the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.”  Seven sons of Sceva, a Jewish chief priest, were doing this.  One day the evil spirit answered them,  “Jesus I know, and I know about Paul, but who are you?”  Then the man who had the evil spirit jumped on them and overpowered them all.  He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding.  When this became known to the Jews and Greeks living in Ephesus, they were all seized with fear, and the name of the Lord Jesus was held in high honor.  Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed their evil deeds.  A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly.  When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas. (note: a drachma was a silver coin worth about a day’s wages).  In this way the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power.” (Acts 19:13-20)

“Now I know that none of you among whom I have gone about preaching the kingdom will ever see me again.  Therefore, I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of all men.  For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God.  Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers.  Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood.  I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock.  Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them.  So be on your guard!  Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.” (Acts 20:25-31)

“But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God’s wrath, when His righteous judgment will be revealed.  “God will give to each person according to what he has done.”  To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor, and immortality, he will give eternal life.  But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger.” (Romans 2:5-8)

“Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God?  Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.  And that is what some of you were.  But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”                                        (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)

“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.  Live as children of light.  (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord.  Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.” (Ephesians 5:8-11)

“Finally , be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  Therefore, put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.” (Ephesians 6:10-17)

“Test everything.  Hold on to the good.  Avoid every kind of evil.”                             (1 Thessalonians 5:21,22)

“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs, and wonders, and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing.  They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.  For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.”                                      (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)

“For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all men — the testimony given in its proper time.” (1 Timothy 2:5,6)

“The Spirit clearly says that in the later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons.” (1 Timothy 4:1)

“Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage — with great patience and careful instruction.  For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine.  Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.  They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.” (2 Timothy 4:2-4)

“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men.  It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope — the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for Himself a people that are His very own, eager to do what is good.” (Titus 2:11-14)

“But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, He saved us, not because of righteous things we have done, but because of His mercy.  He saved us through the washing through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by His grace we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.” (Titus 3:4-7)

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27)

“You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred towards God?  Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God.  Or do you think that Scripture says without reason that the Spirit he caused to live in us envies intensely?  But He gives us more grace.  This is why Scripture says:  “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”  Submit yourselves, then, to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Come near to God and He will come near to you.  Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.  Grieve, mourn, and wail.  Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom.  Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will lift you up.” (James 4:4-10)

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that He may life you up in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.  Be self-controlled and alert.  Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.  Resist him, standing firm in the faith…”               (1 Peter 5:6-9a)

“The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood — idols that cannot see or hear or walk.  Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.” (Revelation 9:20-21) 

“And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur,where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown.  They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” (Revelation 20:10)

“Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire.  The lake of fire is the second death.  If anyone’s name was not not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.” (Revelation 20:14,15)

“He said to me:  “It is done.  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End.  To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.  He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be My son.  But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice arts, the idolaters and all liars — their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur.  This is the second death.”                (Revelation 21:6-8)

“Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.  Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.” (Revelation 22:14,15)

UPDATE:

Lord willing, I am hoping to present you with another post in the Catholicism series (in which I am comparing the teachings found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church to  Scriptures found in a Catholic New Testament Bible, trusting that God will reveal the Biblical gospel and who Jesus Christ truly is, to many Catholics) in approximately a week.

Thank you very much for stopping by and taking time out of your busy day to read some of my posts and poems.

God Bless You

Capture Eyes with tears 1

UPDATED 6:10 P.M.  3/17/16 ADDED *VIDEO #3 OF POPE FRANCIS ON EVOLUTION

Welcome to another post in the series of posts that I have entitled, Warning You With Tears Wednesdays. Lord willing, at least once a month on Wednesdays I will be writing and sharing one of these posts with you so that I can make you all aware of some important information that I come across on the Internet that you may not have heard about.Since I knew that I would soon be starting a new part-time job (which I  started in June) and that my free time would then be somewhat limited, I was trying to think of something that I could write on a regular basis that would be short and to the point (at least that was my intention). And since I am a detective-at-heart and desire to make you all aware of the importance of testing things that pastors and teachers say (and do) in light of Scripture (Acts 17:11), the idea to do these posts — as well as the name — came to my mind in November of 2014, based on Acts 20:26-31:

“For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God. Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which He bought with His own blood. I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them. So be on your guard! Remember that for three years I never stopped warning each of you night and day with tears.”

So with all of that in mind, here is what I’d like to share with you in today’s WARNING YOU WITH TEARS WEDNESDAY:

1) Many of us are already aware of the numerous things that Pope Francis has said that has caused quite a bit of controversy:

 

 

 

 

 

 

However, maybe some of you aren’t aware of the fact that Pope Francis has a new cartoon series — and a book — in which he is presenting some very unbiblical things to children:

 

 

 

2) In many previous Warning You With Tears Wednesday posts I have shared articles with you in order to warn you of how eastern meditation practices — especially mindfulness —  are being presented to children in public schools in many states across our country. In this article by Berean Research, you will see some of the dangers of meditation and mindfulness:

MARSHA WEST OF BEREAN RESEARCH – THE DARK SIDE OF MEDITATION AND MINDFULNESS: TREATMENT CAN TRIGGER MANIA, DEPRESSION, AND PSYCHOSIS, NEW BOOK CLAIMS

 

3) Mindfulness is not the only thing that parents need to be aware of concerning what their children are being taught in schools today! Ken Ham of Answers in Genesis tells us in the following article that:

PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS TOLD TO WORSHIP THE SUN?

 

4) Lighthouse Trails shows us from an article posted in FORTUNE MAGAZINE that these same meditation practices are being used to transform businesses:

FORTUNE MAGAZINE – “MEDITATION HAS BECOME A “BILLION-DOLLAR BUSINESS”

5) If you still are not aware of who Peter Drucker is, when time allows please consider reading the following article by Stand Up For The Truth and listening to the podcast, as well, at the link below. Also, when time allows, please watch the related videos that I posted below if you have never watched them before:

STAND UP FOR THE TRUTH – WHO IS PETER DRUCKER, AND WHAT DID HE DO WITH OUR CHURCH?

6) After recently learning from a dear Sister-In-Christ that singer and song writer Jeremy Riddle is actually the worship leader at *Bill Johnson’s Bethel Church in Redding CA, I have now officially crossed another singer  off my list of favorites and will continue to just listen to the CD’s of piano praise music that I received for my birthday from my sister a few years ago. I resorted to these extreme measures because I refuse to listen to any Hillsong United or Jesus Culture songs, or any group that is either associated with a church where the pastor is a false teacher or chooses to become involved with any Conference that promotes mystical experiences or unbiblical unity! I also refuse to listen to the many Jesus is my boyfriend type songs that oftentimes can be heard on K-Love. *(Lord willing, Bill Johnson will be the focus of an upcoming False Teacher Friday post which I hope to write some time during the summer).

7) Roger Oakland of Understand The Times shares some rather disturbing information with us concerning CALVARY CHAPEL and “a new symbol.” Click on the link below to read his article and to see this new symbol:

THE OWNERSHIP OF THE NAME “CALVARY CHAPEL,” THE DOVE AND THE APPEARANCE OF A NEW SYMBOL

 

8) Besides the information in the articles that I shared with you earlier that show you how the New Age/New Spirituality meditation practices are entering our schools and in the work place, one only has to look at this cover of NEWSWEEK MAGAZINE that Lighthouse Trails brought to our attention to show us how the New Age/New Spirituality Movement is permeating every aspect of our world, and it has been doing this for quite some time now! That old saying still holds true; one picture is worth a thousand words!

Capture Lighthouse Trails - Newsweek - Spiritual Living - Filled with New Age(SOURCE)

9) Many of you know by now that Warren B Smith, was once deeply involved in the New Age Movement and that he now writes books and speaks at Conferences warning Christians of how the many occultic spiritual practices that are part of the New Age Movement are now coming into the church. If you have listened to some of the many  videos of Warren speaking on the New Age Movement that I have been posting here on my blog, then you also know that Warren’s messages are always filled with Scriptures. The same is true concerning his new booklet tract in which he offers hope by sharing many Scripture passages:

LIGHTHOUSE TRAILS – NEW BOOKLET TRACT BY WARREN B SMITH – REMAINING HOPEFUL THROUGH IT ALL

And once again, I will end this post with something that will give God the praise and glory that He is so deserving of:

Thank you very much for taking time out of your busy day to read some of my posts and poems.

God Bless You
