IS IT ALL JUST GOOD CLEAN FUN? Reflections on Hallowe’en

Posted on

THE PHOTO ACCOMPANYING THESE WORDS is of an icon hand-painted on wood by a Greek Orthodox monk which depicts George slaying the dragon. This precious icon is placed near where I sit when writing, so as to inspire and encourage me in the formation of my words. It really represents the Archangel Michael battling against the fallen, apostate Archangel Satan, who is depicted symbolically as a dragon in an account of that battle in chapter 12 of the prophetic Book of Revelation, which was written over nineteen-hundred years ago on the Greek island of Patmos, which is about 300 kilometers (190 miles) from where I am sitting right now in Athens, Greece, as I write these words. I have that icon near me as a symbolic reminder that the angels and I do battle against just the kind of empty darkness which so many people ignorantly celebrate today.

Try talking to people about this day they call ‘Hallowe’en’. “It’s all just good clean fun”, they say. “No, it isn’t”, I reply gravely (pun intended). If you study the real background to this day, you will see that it is anything but ‘clean’. When one has tasted spiritual cleanness and has had the desire for ‘dirt’ removed from one’s heart, then what happens on the 31st day of October can be seen as the forces of darkness making fools out of those who are enslaved to them and who they manipulate like pawns on the chessboard of life. It is all so incongruously anachronistic. For the Christ came two millennia ago to cleanse the world of all that filth — though the forces of darkness refuse to acknowledge it and rabidly continue with their futile rebellion against all that is good and Light, for they know that they only have a little time left to complete the building of their ersatz empire. Therefore, at a time when those same forces of darkness are so avidly building up to their climax of evil through their increasing manipulation behind the scenes to bring in a deceptive one-world government, it is an act of the utmost foolishness and even apostasy to impersonate theatrical representations of that very same darkness and evil and imagine that it is merely “good clean fun”.

If I were to dress up as anything today, it would be as the Archangel Michael. I would ride gallantly on horseback into the midst of every celebration of evil today with my symbolic sword (which is my words) and bring symbolic fire (which is the power of the Light) down from heaven to dress everyone as the angels who never fell for Satan’s filthy lies rather than as the demons who scoff at everything wise. They would be the best quick-change artists ever! That’s what I call clean entertainment. We should be imitators of good rather than evil — of Light rather than darkness — not just today but every day in this countdown to the approaching time when all darkness will be eradicated from the cosmos forever in the inauguration of a new aeon: A new heaven and a new earth.

These words come with great love from me to you…
