萬聖節和黑暗能量

萬聖節的所有東西從何處而來呢?1031日是鬼,女巫,小妖精和奇怪生物的日子。它也是橙色和黑色,蠟燭和手燈籠的日子。化裝宴會和古怪習俗佔領了西方的文明思想,而且每年這些全部的東西像是正在增強。孩子們穿著每種可想像得到的服裝,一些服裝更是難以想像的,萬聖節好幾年在10月底到過一道接一道的門說「若不給糖果則搞惡作劇」和收集充滿整袋的糖果。近幾年來,許多人裝飾他們的庭院成墓地,並使他們的房子看作幽靈一般。甚至教會舉行萬聖節宴會,建立「鬧鬼的房子」當作籌款計畫。所有這些東西從何而來,代表甚麼意思呢?大多數的人會說是完全無害處的娛樂。一些人會敢膽說:「如果萬聖節的本質是巫術的話,它是白巫術。」為了要真實地回答兩個問題,萬聖節從哪堥茤M代表甚麼意思,我們必須清楚了解萬聖節的根源。

萬聖節的起源是在大約1300年前的英國。在那日子,有很多男人和女人行這個所謂稱為聰明人的「自然宗教。」(Wicca」這個字的意思是「聰明人」。「女巫」這個字源自「Wicca)。這些女巫個人地發出她們的咒語和魔法,或者有時以13人為一組舉行聚會,這個聚會稱為「巫魔會」。有時女巫和男巫三人一起行魔法。女性的Wiccan稱為女巫,男性的Wiccan稱為男巫。魔術師(warlock)這個字不是被女巫用來識別她們自己的。它實際上是蘇格蘭蓋爾字,表示「叛逆者」。撒但主義者使用魔術師(warlock)這個字。

Wiccans是「大地之母」、太陽、月亮和星星的崇拜者。女巫不相信撒但。Wiccans或女巫於每個星期五晚上在稱為「esbat」的地方聚集。她們畫一個堶惘酗豪互P的魔術圓圈,稱為六芒星形(hexagram),「hex」這個字從它而來。13人的巫魔會代表《天空衣》或者是無遮蔽的六芒星形,唱出和行儀式的咒語,例如:「畫下月亮」。滿月對女巫是神聖的,尤其是在星期五。如果是在某月13號的星期五,這滿月更為神聖。

每年這些女巫慶祝安息日八次,她們總是在安息日前夕行儀式和發出咒語。在22日的安息日是Imbolc,春分是在322日、Beltaine是在51日、夏至是在622日、Lugnahsaid是在731日、秋分是在922日、Samhain是在1031日、冬至是在1222日,也被稱為耶穌聖誕節。

即使他們不相信撒但,女巫有特別的方式慶祝每個安息日,撒但會給她們經驗,她們會被欺騙使她們認為是進入自然的力量。八個巫術安息日當中,萬聖節是最重要的安息日,在蘇格蘭蓋爾字它被女巫稱為《撒摩斯》,發音是「SOW-EEN」。在這個世界和下一個世界之間的障礙,它稱為星界平面,一般相信在那個晚上,會變成非常薄。這些女巫相信這樣會允許死人的靈魂在地球和靈界之間自由地往返行走。因此,萬聖節是Wiccan巫術堛熙怜盲擗擗l。很多世紀以來,女巫會在那晚行她們的魔術,然後在那個黑暗的夜晚舉行通宵的狂野會。她們將會玩遊戲,例如向蘋果點頭,因為女巫認為蘋果是神聖的。這些女巫也會從她們私人的咒語日記講故事,這是她們的《影子書》。當主持的高級祭師或女祭師說:「女巫故事和給我們事先無準備的客人一杯麥酒」,這些鬼故事將會開始。

在英國的早期,另外一種稱為德魯伊教的巫術。德魯伊教團員叫做《橡樹人》和穿著白長袍的奇怪部族。德魯伊教團員敬拜Cernnunos,他是「夜晚的有角獵人」。萬聖節對這些德魯伊教團員是神聖的因為他們的日頭神在1031日退回到陰間,根據他們的計算為何黑暗增加和光亮減少的原因。

當黑暗在1031日臨在的時候,德魯伊教的部族會穿上他們的白長袍和頭巾。當他們開始火炬之光的行進隊伍,他們會攜帶鐮刀和塞爾特十字架。在隊伍開始行進之時,男奴會被殺和被一條拴緊他的左踝的粗繩拖著。這些德魯伊教團員會走著直到他們來到房子或村莊呼叫「若不給糖果則搞惡作劇」。Treat是女奴或任何給予德魯伊教團員的女性。如果人們拒絕「款待」女孩,血會從死了的奴隸取出,並使用那些血畫出六芒星形在村莊的門或牆壁上。「夜晚的有角獵人」會被德魯伊教團員叫喚,會在那個晚上恐嚇殺死那棟房子或村莊的一些人。

如果房子或村莊「款待」女孩,那些德魯伊教團員會用刻了臉型的南瓜放在那個地方的門或閘前。在南瓜內是一支人類獸脂製成的蠟燭來防範邪惡之靈。因此,手燈籠是你和撒但合作的標記。

那些女性受害人會被送往巨大石柱群,在那堨L們會強姦和殺死她們,然後獻給神聖的大篝火直到白熱的火炭熄滅。bonfire這個現代字是源自「bonefire」。為了必要在冬季保存性命,所有村民預期會使用白熱火炭的篝火,來燃點他們的爐床。

當我們能清楚地看見的時候,萬聖節不是無害處。撒但在我們的時代是有牠的子民,模倣從前的女巫和德魯伊教團員。這些全部的東西會被神咒詛。我們居住在巫術復興的時代。電影充滿巫術,很多的電視節目例如《迷人》,教導巫術給數百萬人。這《哈利.波特》書是同樣地促進撒但的目的!萬聖節不是笑話和不是無害處的娛樂!這個邪惡的節日在基督徒的生命是沒有份的。羅馬天主教從那些女巫借來萬聖節,顯示他們是如此的盲目。當你閱讀這本小冊子時,願神幫助你來避免萬聖節和警告他人。萬聖節是撒但精密地發明的東西,它不是指別的東西,它是第一等級的邪惡!

Halloween and the Forces of Darkness

Where did it all come from? October 31st is a day of ghosts, witches, goblins, and grotesque creatures. It is also a day of orange and black, of candles and jack-o-lanterns. Costume parties and strange customs occupy the minds of western civilization, and all of this seems to be intensifying every year. Children wearing every kind of costume imaginable, and some unimaginable, have been going for door to door for years at the end of October saying “trick or treat” and collecting bags full of treats. In recent years, many people have been decorating their yards as cemeteries and making their houses look spooky. Even churches have Halloween parties and set up “haunted houses” as fund raising projects. Where did it all come from, and what does it all mean? Most people would say it is all harmless fun. Some would venture to say, “If there is any witchcraft in it, it is white witchcraft.” In order to truly answer both of the questions where did it come from and what does it mean, we must go clear back to the origin of it all. 

Halloween has its origin in the British Isles about 1300 years ago. In those days, there were many men and women who practiced a so-called “nature religion” known as Wicca. (The word “Wicca” means “wise ones.” The word “witch” is derived from “Wicca.”) The witches worked their spells and magic as individuals or sometimes in groups of 13 known as Covens. Sometimes the witches and wizards worked as a triumvirate or power of three. The female Wiccan was known as a witch, and the male Wiccan was known as a wizard. The word “warlock” was not used by witches to identify themselves. It is actually a Scotch-Gaelic word that means “traitor.” Satanists use the word “warlock.”

The Wiccans were worshippers of the “Earth Mother”, the sun, the moon, and stars. Witches do not believe in Satan. The Wiccans or witches meet every Friday night at a gathering called an “esbat.” They draw a magic circle with a six-pointed star in it called a “hexagram”, from which we get the word “hex.” The coven of 13 stand “sky clad” or naked in the hexagram and work spells by chanting and doing rituals such as “drawing down the moon.” The full moon is sacred to witches, especially if it is on a Friday. It is considered to be even greater if the Friday is the 13th day of the month. 

Eight times each year, the witches celebrated a sabat and the ritual work and spell casting was always done on the eve of the sabat. The sabats are Imbolc on February 2nd, the spring equinox on March 22nd, Beltaine on May 1st, the summer solstice on June 22nd, Lugnahsaid on July 31st, the fall equinox on September 22nd, Samhain on October 31st, and the winter solstice on December 22nd, which is also known as Yule. 

Witches have special ways of celebrating for each sabat, and even though they do not believe in Satan, it is Satan who gives them the experiences they have and deceives them into thinking it is the forces of nature they are tapping into. Halloween is the most important of the eight sabats in witchcraft and is known to the witches by the Scotch-Gaelic word “Samhain”, which is pronounced “SOW-EEN.” It is believed that on that night, the barrier between this world and the next, known as the astral plane, becomes very thin. The witches believe that this allows spirits of departed ones to travel freely back and forth between the earth and the spirit realm. Thus, Halloween is the highest day in Wiccan witchcraft. On that night for many centuries, witches would work their magic and then have wild parties all through the darkness of that night. They would play games, such as bobbing for apples, because witches regard the apple as sacred. The witches would also tell stories from their personal diaries of spells known as their “book of shadows.” These ghost stories would start when the hosting High Priest or Priestess would say, “A witches’ tale and a cup of ale for the host of our guests unseen.” 

In those early days in England, there was another kind of witchcraft known as Druidism. The Druids were called “men of the oaks” and were a strange clan of men who dressed in white robes. The Druids worshipped Cernnunos, the “horned hunter of the night.“ Halloween was sacred to the Druids because their sun-god receded to the underworld on October 31st, which is why darkness increased and light decreased according to their reckoning. 

As darkness set in on October 31st, the clan of Druids would put on their white robes and hoods. They would carry sickles and Celtic crosses as they began a torchlight procession. At the beginning of the procession, a male slave was killed and dragged by a rope fastened to his left ankle. The Druids would walk until they came to a house or a village where they shouted the equivalent of “trick or treat.” The treat was a slave girl or any female to be given to the Druids. If the people refused to a girl as a “treat”, blood was taken from the dead slave and used to draw a hexagram or six-pointed star on the door or wall of the village. Spirits of the “horned hunter of the night” were invoked by the Druids to kill someone in that house or village by fear that night. 

If the house or village gave a girl as a “treat”, the Druids put a pumpkin with a face carved in it in front of the door or gate of that place. Inside the pumpkin was a candle made of human tallow to keep evil spirits away. Thus, the Jack-O-Lantern was and is a sign that you have cooperated with Satan. 

The treats or female victims were taken to Stonehenge where they were raped and killed and then sacrificed on the sacred bonefire until only glowing embers were left. The “bonefire” is the origin of the modern day bonfire. As a matter of luck for winter survival, all villagers were expected to use the glowing embers of the bonefire to light their hearths. 

As we can clearly see, Halloween is not harmless. Satan has people in our modern era mimicking the witches and Druids of old. All of this is cursed of God. We live in a time when witchcraft is being revived. Movies are filled with witchcraft and numerous television programs such as “Charmed” are teaching witchcraft to millions. The Harry Potter books are likewise furthering the cause of Satan! Halloween is no joke and is not harmless fun! This evil holiday has no part in the life of a Christian. The Roman Catholic Church borrowed Halloween from the witches, which shows how blind they are. May God help you as you read this tract to avoid Halloween and warn others that it is strictly the invention of Satan and can never be anything but evil of the first magnitude!
