As we have repeatedly
stated, the Satanist believes that numbers contain inherent power.
Thus, they literally order their lives by occult numerology -- such
numerology also is a key component in astrology, another system of
divining that Satanists observe very closely. The occult calendar is
divided into four (4) segments of 13 weeks each. The number, "13" is
considered divine by the occultist for a couple of reasons:
1. The Bible
assigns '13' the meaning of "rebellion against constituted
authority", plus the depravity that caused Satan to rebel
2. The occultist assigns '6' to represent the number of
man, and the number '7' to represent the number of divine
perfection. Thus, as a person climbs that "Jacob's Ladder"
toward self-perfection in the realm of the occult, the number
'13' represents the state of divine perfection, self-achieved
perfection, and Illumination (6+7 = 13).
Thus, the occult
calendar is comprised of four periods of 13 weeks each. We list
these periods for you, below. Then, after listing them, we shall
come back to talk about each of them in detail.
Solstice -- 13 weeks -- Minor sabbath
December 21 -- Yule
b. December 21-22 -- Winter Solstice/Yule. One of the
Illuminati's Human Sacrifice Nights
c. February 1 and 2 -- Candlemas and Imbolg, a.k.a.
Groundhog's Day. One of the Illuminati's Human Sacrifice
d. February 14 -- Valentine's Day
2. Spring Equinox
-- 13 weeks -- Minor sabbath but does require human
21-22 -- Goddess Ostara -- Note: Easter is the first Sunday
after the first new moon after Ostara. March 21 is one of
the Illuminati's Human Sacrifice Nights
b. April 1 -- All Fool's Day, precisely 13 weeks
since New Year's Day!
c. April 19 - May 1 -- Blood Sacrifice To The Beast.
Fire sacrifice is required on April 19.
d. April 30 - May 1 -- Beltaine Festival, also called
Walpurgis Night. This is the highest day on the Druidic
Witch's Calendar. May 1 is the Illuminati's second most
sacred holiday. Human sacrifice is required
Solstice -- 13 weeks -- When the sun reaches its
northernmost point in its journey across the sky
21 - 22 -- Summer Solstice
b. June 21 - Litha is one of the Illuminati's Human
c. July 4, America's Independence Day, is 13 days
after Day of Litha and 66 days from April 30
d. July 19 -- 13 days before Lughnasa
e. July 31 - August 1 -- Lughnasa, Great Sabbat
Festival. August -- One of the Illuminati's Human Sacrifice
Equinox -- 13 weeks -- Minor Sabbath but does require human
September 21 - Mabon -- one of the Illuminati's Human
b. September 21 -22 -- Autumnal Equinox
c. October 31 -- Samhain, also known as Halloween, or
All Hallows Eve. This date is the Illuminati's highest day
of human sacrifice
Isn't it interesting how
the "profane" -- you and me -- are led like a flock of sheep to
observe the important festival days of the Mysteries' Religion? You
may not understand that you are ordering your year after pagan
holidays, but you are! The annual calendar for the entire Western
world is ordered by these Satanic festival times and days.
Now that we have seen the entire occult calendar, let us go back to
the significant holidays to see how the Western world has slipped
into a worship of the same pagan holidays and are using many of the
same pagan symbols that are so important to the pagan worshipper.
The human sacrifice required during many of these occult dates needs
to contain the following elements, each one of which is exaggerated
to the highest possible degree:
Trauma, stress, and mental anguish, sheer terror
2. The final act in the drama should be destruction
by a fire; preferably a conflagration.
3. People must die as human sacrifices, especially
children, since Lord Satan looks upon a younger human
sacrifice as his most desirable
SPECIFIC DATES WITHIN
THE OCCULT CALENDAR
1. Winter Solstice --
a. December 21-
the sun begins its northward trek in the sky, and days began to
grow longer again, pagans celebrated the Winter Solstice by
burning the Yule log. Since the sun had reversed itself and was
now rising in the sky, pagans believed this was a sign that the
human sacrifices carried out in Samhain (Halloween) had been
accepted by the gods.
We continue to sing: "Deck the halls with boughs of holly ...
troll the ancient Yuletide carol ... See the blazing Yule before
us. Fa la la la la la la la." ["Pagan Traditions of the
Holidays", David Ingraham, p. 71]
Roman Catholic Church later changed the day of celebration
to December 25, calling it Christmas.
Consider the pagan roots of our popular symbols of Christmas:
Tree -- The sacred tree of the winter-god; Druids
believed the spirit of their gods resided in the tree. Most
ancient pagans knew the tree represented Nimrod reincarnated
into Tammuz! Pagans also looked upon the tree as a phallic
(2) Star -- Pentalpha, the five-pointed star. The
pentalpha is a powerful symbol of Satan, second only to the
hexagram. The star is the sacred symbol of Nimrod, and has
nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity.
(3) Candles represent the sun-gods' newly-born fire.
Pagans the world over love and use candles in their rituals
and ceremonies. Certain colors are also thought to represent
specific powers. The extensive use of candles is usually a
very good indication that the service is pagan, no matter
what the outward trappings might be.
(4) Mistletoe is the sacred plant of the Druids,
symbolizing pagan blessings of fertility; thus, kissing
under the mistletoe is the first step in the reproductive
cycle! Witches also use the white berries in potions.
(5) Wreaths are circular, and so they represent the
female sexual organs. Wreaths are associated with fertility
and the "circle of life".
(6) Santa Claus -- Former Satanists have told me that
"Santa" is an anagram for "Satan". In the New Age, the god,
"Sanat Kamura", is most definitely an anagram for "Satan".
The mythical attributes and powers ascribed to Santa are
eerily close to those possessed by Jesus Christ.
(7) Reindeer are horned animals representing the
"horned-god" or the "stag-god" of pagan religion! Santa's
traditional number of reindeer in his team is eight (8); in
Satanic gematria, eight is the number of "new beginnings",
or the cycle of reincarnation.
The Illuminati views the
number "eight" as a symbol of their
New World Order.
(8) Elves are imp-like creatures who are Santa's
(Satan's) little helpers. They are also demons.
(9) Green and Red are the traditional colors of the
season, as they are the traditional pagan colors of winter.
Green is Satan's favorite color, so it is appropriate it
should be one of the traditional colors for Christmas; red
is the color of human blood, Satan's highest form of
sacrifice -- for this reason, Communism adopted red as it
(10) December 25 is known as the "nativity" of the
sun. This date is the birthday of Tammuz, the son, the
reincarnation of the sun god. Traditionally, December 21 is
known as Yule. The Roman Catholic Church moved the
celebration of Yule to December 25.
(11) December 25 is also known to the Romans as
"Saturnalia", a time of deliberate debauchery. Drinking
through repeated toasting -- known as 'wassail' -- was a key
to the debauchery of this celebration. Fornication was
symbolized by the mistletoe, and the entire event was
finished with a Great Feast, the Christmas Dinner.
(12) Even the name, "Christmas" is pagan! "Christi"
meant "Christ", while "Mas" meant
Mass. Since all pagan
Masses are commemorating "death", the name, "Christmas"
literally means the "death of Christ". A deeper meaning lies
in the mention of "Christ" without specifying
Antichrist is in view here; the pagans celebrate "Christmas"
as a celebration of their coming Antichrist, who will deal a
death blow to the Jesus Christ of Christianity.
Christian Pilgrims refused to celebrate this day.
b. February 1 and 2
-- Candlemas and
Imbolg, popularly called Groundhog's Day. The popular
"Punxsutawney Phil" groundhog comes out of his burrow to divine
the next few weeks of weather. If he sees his shadow, we will
have 6 more weeks of bad weather until Spring finally arrives;
if he does not see his shadow, the next 7 weeks before Spring
will be good weather. Notice this pagan tradition features both
the number '6' and '7', which when added, equals '13'.
What most people do not realize is that the pagan view of
Groundhog's Day (Imbolg) represents the Earth Mother. Consider
these uncanny parallels between the Groundhog and the Earth
1. As the
Earth goddess sleeps inside the earth during the winter
season, so does the Groundhog
2. Both the Earth goddess and the Groundhog bridge
the two time periods: Winter and Spring
3. Both the goddess and the Groundhog are "earth"
4. Both the goddess and the Groundhog "awaken" in
5. Both the Earth goddess and the Groundhog complete
the "cycle of reincarnation"
6. Annually, both the Earth goddess and the Groundhog
represent the cycle of "rebirth" and "renewal"
"Groundhog" was substituted for the Satanic name of the holiday,
Imbolg, a night requiring human sacrifice.
c. February 14 --
Valentine's Day --
is a pagan festival that encourages love and physical lust. It
is celebrated precisely 13 days after Imbolg, thus imprinting
upon it the number '13', Satan's number of extreme rebellion.
While most people view this day as the day to honor your wife or
your lover, this celebration is steeped in paganism
Consider the camouflaged occult gods in Valentine's Day:
the son of Venus, is really Tammuz, son of Semiramis
2. Venus, daughter of Jupiter, is really Semiramis
herself. Jupiter is the head deity, a sun god -- Nimrod, Semiramis' husband, is considered a sun god in
Listen to a pagan
author describe February, the month in which Valentine's Day
"The name of
this month comes from the Roman goddess Februa and St.
Febronia (from Febris, the fever of love). She is the
patroness of the passion of love ... Her orgiastic rites are
celebrated on 14 February -- still observed as St.
Valentine's Day -- when, in Roman times, young men would
draw billets naming their female partners ... This is a time
of clear vision into other worlds, expressed by festivals of
purification. On 1 February is the celebration of the
cross-quarter day, or fire festival (Imbolc) a purificatory
festival. It is followed on the 2nd by its Christian
counterpart, Candlemas, the purification of the Virgin
["The Pagan Book
of Days", Nigel Pennick]
Valentine's Day is a
day of "orgiastic rites" in which the pagans encouraged the flow
of lustful passion.
2. Spring Equinox --
-- Minor Sabbath but
does require human sacrifice
a. March 21-22
-- Goddess Ostara (Ishtar,
also spelled, "Eostre"), for whom "Easter" is named -- March 21
is one of the Illuminati's Human Sacrifice Nights
Easter is a shifting date using the common practice of
Astrology; it is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first
new moon after Ostara.
This date also has nothing to do with the resurrection of our
Lord Jesus Christ! Rather, this day in the pagan tradition
celebrates the return of Semiramis into her reincarnated form of
the Spring Goddess. The pagans even have an equivalent to our
Good Friday! It is "Easter Friday", and has historically been
timed to be the third full moon from the start of the year.
Since the marrying of pagan Easter to Jesus' resurrection, Good
Friday is permanently fixed on the Friday prior to Easter.
Easter is steeped in the Babylonian Mysteries, the single most
evil idolatrous system ever invented by Satan! All throughout
the prophetic Scriptures, we see God declaring His final
judgment upon wicked Babylon! Yet, every year, Christian pastors
intone "Easter" as though it were Christian. Many Independent
Baptist preachers have begun referring to this day celebrating
Jesus' resurrection as "Resurrection Sunday", in order to
separate the day from the pagan celebration.
The Babylonian goddess, Ishtar, is the one for whom Easter is
named; ["Pagan Traditions of Holidays", p. 9] in reality, she
was Semiramis, wife of Nimrod, and the real founder of the
Satanic Babylonian Mysteries. After Nimrod died, Semiramis
created the legend that he was really her Divine Son born to her
in a Virgin Birth. She is considered to be the co-founder of all
occult religions, along with Nimrod.
Easter -- the day of Ishtar -- is celebrated widely among
various cultures and religions on earth.
Babylon - Ishtar (Easter) also called the Moon Goddess
2. Catholics -- Virgin Mary (Queen of Heaven)
3. Chinese -- Shingmoo
4. Druids -- Virgo Paritura
5. Egypt -- Isis
6. The Pagan Ephesians -- Dianna
7. Etruscans -- Nutria
8. Germans (Ancient) -- Hertha
9. Greeks -- Aphrodite/Ceres
10. India -- Isi/Indrani
11. Ancient Jews -- Ashtaroth (Queen of Heaven)
12. Krishna -- Devaki
13. Rome -- Venus/Fortuna
14. Scandinavians -- Disa
15. Sumerians -- Nana
Occult Holidays", Doc Marquis and Sam Pollard]
celebrated the day as the return of Ishtar (Easter), the goddess
of Spring. This day celebrated the rebirth, or reincarnation, of
Nature and the goddess of Nature. According to Babylonian
legend, a huge egg fell from heaven, landing in the Euphrates
River. The goddess, Ishtar (Easter) broke out of this egg.
Later, the feature of an egg nesting was introduced, a nest
where the egg could incubate until hatched. A "wicker" or reed
basket was conceived in which to place the Ishtar egg.
The Easter Egg Hunt was conceived because, if anyone found her
egg while she was being "reborn", she would bestow a blessing
upon that lucky person! Because this was a joyous Spring
festival, eggs were colored with bright Spring colors. [Ibid.]
The Easter Bunny
totem, the Moon-hare, would lay eggs for good children to
eat ... Eostre's hare was the shape that Celts imagined on
the surface of the full moon ..."
Traditions of Holidays", p. 10.]
Do not bother to
tell me that bunnies do not lay eggs, for I know that; we are
dealing with a legend here, and an occult legend at that. These
types of legends traditionally play loose and fast with facts.
Thus, "Easter" -- Eostre, or Ishtar -- was a goddess of
fertility. Since the bunny is a creature that procreates
quickly, it symbolized the sexual act; the egg symbolized
"birth" and "renewal". Together, the Easter Bunny and Easter Egg
symbolizes the sex act and its offspring, Semiramis and Tammuz.
Thus, it is a very serious spiritual matter, indeed, when
christian churches incorporate "Resurrection Eggs" as part of
their Easter celebration. At the very least, these churches are
confusing the minds of their precious young children, by
blurring the dividing line between pagan symbols and their
meanings and Christian meanings of Resurrection Day. Young
children who participated in "Resurrection Eggs" in church will
be conditioned later in their life to accept the fullness of the
pagan tradition revolving around the same symbols.
At worst, a church participating in the pagan Easter tradition
by promoting "Resurrection Eggs" and perhaps an Easter Egg Hunt,
is guilty of combining Christianity with paganism, the very
lethal cocktail the Lord Jesus will always reject! Remember our
out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and
touch not the unclean thing"
If your church has
"Resurrection Eggs", that is a church you should consider
leaving immediately; if the Senior Pastor is Liberal enough to
use "Resurrection Eggs" in his Resurrection Day celebrations, he
is probably Liberal in Doctrine and Theology, but may not be far
enough along for you to see it yet.
Other Pagan Ingredients
Easter Offerings are derived from the tradition where the
priests and priestesses would bring offerings to the pagan
temples for Easter. They brought freshly-cut Spring flowers and
candies to place on the altar of the idol they worshipped. They
would also bake Hot Cross Buns, decorating them with crosses
symbolizing the cross of Wotan, or some other pagan god; these
crosses were not originally the cross of Jesus Christ. This is
another instance where Satan counterfeited a pagan tradition
that could later be passed off as "Christian" in a church
seriously compromised by Syncretization.
In fact, the first instance of Hot Cross Buns can be traced back
to about 1,500 BC, to Cecrops, the Founder of Athens [Marquis,
p. 18] Later pagans used
not just the shape of a Pentalpha star, but also the Hot Cross
Another popular Easter offering were freshly made or purchased
clothes! The priests would wear their best clothes, while the
Vestal Virgins would wear newly-made white dresses. They would
also wear headgear, like bonnets, while many would adorn
themselves in garlands of Spring flowers. They would carry
wicker baskets filled with foods and candies to offer to the
pagan gods and goddesses.
Easter Sunrise Services were originated by the priest serving
the Babylonian Ishtar to symbolically hasten the reincarnation
of Ishtar/Easter. Once again, we see how Satan knew that Jesus'
rising from the grave would be discovered in the early sunrise
hours, and that the Christian Church would want to hold Sunrise
Services to celebrate. Satan and his demons know and believe
God's Word and its prophecies literally, and they are allowed a
certain amount of foreknowledge. Just as Satan counterfeited the
Divine birth of a male child to a Virgin Mother fully 1,000
years before Jesus was actually born, so he counterfeited this
Lent is purely pagan, and yet has been accepted by the Roman
Catholic Church and apostate christian churches as "christian".
If the church you are attending celebrates Lent, you need to
inform the Senior Pastor of the pagan roots of this tradition;
if he will not listen you should leave that church, for if they
will accept Lent as "Christian", you can bet they are very
Liberal in critical Biblical areas as well.
Lent is a commemoration of Tammuz' death; the legend of his
death says that he was killed by a wild boar when he was 40
years old. Therefore, Lent celebrates 1 day for each year of
Tammuz' life. [Marquis, "America's Occult Holidays"]
Participants are to express their sorrow over Tammuz' untimely
death by weeping, fasting, and self-chastisement.
Lent was commemorated for exactly 40 days prior to the
celebration of Ishtar/Esotre and other goddesses by the
following cultures: Babylonians, Roman Catholics, Koordistan,
Mexicans, Ancient Israel, and today, Liberal, apostate
We can see God's anger over this commemoration of Lent in
Ezekiel 8:14-18; God's judgment for this commemoration is
described in Ezekiel 9, a chapter we suggest you read carefully,
for God has stated that He will similarly punish any nation who
does not "hear and obey" His commands (Jeremiah 12:17).
b. April 1
-- All Fool's Day,
precisely 13 weeks since New Year's Day!
c. April 19 - May 1
-- Blood Sacrifice
To The Beast, a most critical 13-day period. Fire sacrifice is
required on April 19.
April 19 is the first day of the 13-day Satanic ritual day
relating to fire -- the fire god, Baal, or Molech/Nimrod (the
Sun God), also known as the Roman god, Saturn (Satan/Devil).
This day is a major human sacrifice day, demanding fire
sacrifice with an emphasis on children. This day is one of the
most important human sacrifice days, and as such, has had some
very important historic events occur on this day.
Remember, the Illuminati considers war to be a most propitious
way to sacrifice, for it kills both children and adults.
Some of the very important historic dates that were staged
according to this blood sacrifice day are:
April 19, 1775 -- Battle of Lexington & Concord, which made
the Masonic-led Revolutionary War inevitable
(2). April 19, 1943 -- After trapping the last Jewish
Resistance Fighters in a storm drain in Warsaw, and holding
them for several days, Nazi Storm Troopers began to pour
fire into each end of the storm drain, using flame-throwers.
They continued pouring the fire into the drain until all
fighters were dead. Blood sacrifice brought about by a fiery
(3) April 19, 1993 -- 50 years later, to the day,
government troops, tanks, and other military equipment
stormed the compound of David Koresh and his followers at
Waco, Texas. Certainly, this operation fulfilled the basic
requirements for a human sacrifice: trauma, fire, and young
(4) April 19, 1995 -- Oklahoma City bombing -- Once
again, many young children were killed this day
April 19 of any year
in the 20th Century is a day of fearful contemplation, for it
seems that, as we head into the final stretch of time, Satan is
becoming more and more bold, and is using April 19 more often.
d. April 30 - May 1
Festival, also called "Walpurgis Night". This is the highest day
on the Druidic Witch's Calendar, while May 1 is the Illuminati's
second most sacred holiday. Human sacrifice is required. Since
the celebration officially began the night before Beltaine, the
tradition has developed among occultists to celebrate Beltaine
as a 2-day ceremony. This tradition was strong enough that Adolf
Hitler decided to kill himself on April 30 at 3:30pm, thus
creating a "333" and placing his suicide sacrifice within the
Beltaine time frame.
Great bonfires are lit on the Eve of Beltaine, April 30, in
order to welcome the Earth Goddess. Participants hope to gain
favor with this goddess so she will bless their families with
procreative fertility. We find it interesting that the Royal
House of Windsor lights a Beltaine "Balefire" every year
["America's Occult Holidays", Doc Marquis, p. 30]
The "Maypole" originated from the celebration of Beltaine. Since
fertility is being asked of the Earth Goddess, the Maypole is
the phallic symbol and the circular dance around the pole forms
the circle that is symbolic of the female sex organ. Four
six-foot alternating red and white ribbons were connected to the
pole; the men would dance counterclockwise, while the ladies
danced clockwise. The union of the intertwining red and white
ribbons symbolized the act of copulation -- remember, this is a
"fertility" celebration day!
To demonstrate their occult, Illuminist ties, Communists have
always celebrated "May Day". If you have not been taught how the
Illuminati created Communism, and for which purpose, you need to
hear our Seminar 2, "America Determines The Flow of History".

its northernmost point in its journey across the sky

d. July 19 -- 13 days before Lughnasa
e. July 31 - August 1 -- Lughnasa, Great Sabbat Festival.

a. September 21 -
Mabon -- one of the
Illuminati's Human Sacrifice Nights
b. September 21 -22 -- Autumnal Equinox --
From this date
through Halloween, occultists believe the veil separating the
earthly dimension from the demonic realm gets progressively
thinner, with the thinnest night being October 31; this thinning
of the separating veil makes it easier for the demonic realm to
enter the earthly dimension. Thus, on Halloween, evil spirits,
ghosts, witches, hobgoblins, black cats, fairies, and demons of
all sorts were believed to be running amok across the land. They
had to be back in their spiritual dimension before midnight,
Halloween, for the separating veil would then get thicker.
Once again, I reiterate, this is occult belief, not mine!
October is a most propitious month to the Illuminati.
c. October 31 -- Samhain,
also known as
Halloween, or All Hallows Eve as designated by the Catholic
Church. This date is the Illuminati's highest day of human
Halloween has been changed over the past 30 years in two
important ways. First, children have been encouraged to
participate by donning such inoffensive costumes as Barbie,
Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman. Secondly, adult costuming and
parties have reached a tremendous apex and has become a most
macabre day of celebration.
Historically, Halloween is the deadliest holiday ever celebrated
in human history. This Satanic night is dedicated to the Celtic
Lord of the Dead, also symbolized by the Horned-god and the
Stag-god. The Druids celebrated Samhain as a 3-day fire
festival, building huge bonfires, thought to ward off demons
that roamed around; additionally, the fires provided the means
by which the required human sacrifice would be presented to the
sun god. In enormous wicker baskets, the priests caged both
human and animal sacrifices, which they then lowered into the
flames. The priests would carefully watch the manner in which
the victim died in order to predict whether the future held good
or evil. ["Pagan Traditions of the Holidays", p. 71]
Origin of Popular
Sweets and Trick or Treat
This pagan practice is over 2,000 years old. For the sake of
their safety and well-being, people put outside their home
sweets, the best mutton legs, vegetables, eggs, and poultry,
honey and even wine, so the wandering evil spirits would consume
them on their way back to the netherworld. Failure to "treat"
these evil spirits might result in a curse being put on the
home! The people literally believed that, when these spirits
came to your door, they would trick you if you did not treat
version of Halloween came from Ireland ... The potato famine
in 1840 brought thousands of immigrants from the Emerald
Isle. With them came goblins, jack-0-lanterns, bonfires,
apples, nuts, and pranks ... The Irish are also responsible
for bringing trick or treating to great popularity in
America. In Ireland on October 31, peasants went from house
to house to receive offerings to their Druid god, Muck Olla.
This procession stopped at each house to tell the farmer his
prosperity was due to the benevolence of Muck Olla ... or
else misfortune might befall the farmer and his crops. Few
farmers risked any such displeasure of the pagan deity, so
the procession returned home with eggs, butter, potatoes,
and in some cases, coins ... To the Irish farmers this was
no joke; they greatly feared the Celtic god might destroy
their homes and barns ... Trick or treat is part of this
Traditions of the Holidays". p. 78-79].
People would also take burning wisps from the bonfire and wave
them around to frighten the many evil spirits roaming the earth;
in case the burning wisp alone would not work, revelers clothed
themselves in the most hideous and terrifying costumes. These
people believed that, if you dressed in a terrifying costume and
went trooping around with the spirits all night, they would
think you were one of them and would leave you alone.
["Halloween and Satanism", Phil Philips, p. 26-27]
Satan's obsession with fire has produced human obsession with
building huge bonfires. As we stated earlier, these bonfires
were practical, in that they provided the means by which the
priests sacrificed the human and animal sacrifices so crucial to
Halloween. When the last fires died out, people would race each
other down the hills shouting, "The Devil gets the last one
down". [Philips, p. 27-28]
Samhain (Halloween) was also the time to engage the Devil's
assistance in divining the future. Questions concerning
marriage, luck, health, and the time of one's death were most
popular subjects of divination. In Scotland, young people
assembled for games and pulled shoots out of the ground to
ascertain which of them would marry during the coming year, and
in what order the marriages should occur.
Snap Apple Night
Apples have long been a token of love and fertility. At
Halloween parties, people bobbed for apples in tubs of water. If
a boy came up with an apple between his teeth, he was assured of
the love of his girl. The Snap Apple game was one in which the
boys delighted. Each boy, in his turn, would spring up to
attempt to bite an apple that was being twirled on the end of a
stick; the first boy to succeed would be the first to marry.
Apple seeds were also used to tell fortunes. Peeling an apple in
one long piece was supposed to tell a young girl about her
future. The girl would swing the apple peal three times around
her head, then throw it over her left shoulder. If the peeling
fell unbroken, the girl would examine the shape into which it
fell to see if she could ascertain the initials of her future
Owls, bats, cats and toads are an essential part of Halloween,
and for a very good reason: they are known as "the witch's
familiars". A divining familiar was the species of animal whose
shape Satan would assume to aid the witch in divining the
future. A witch would closely watch the animal's movements --
whether slow or fast -- and she would see the direction in which
the animal moved and the kinds of sounds it made, in order to
foretell the length of life and/or an impending illness.
Other "familiar spirit" shapes include hens, geese, small dogs,
rats, butterflies, wasps crickets, and snails. Witches
considered these creatures to be demon-possessed and controlled.
If you look closely at most Halloween decorations, you will see
these animals, but now you know they represent demon possessed
creatures! ["Pagan Traditions of Holidays", p. 75-76]
Various names for Jack-O-Lantern were 'Lantern Men',
'Hob-O-Langer', and "Will-O-The-Wisp". The 'Lantern Men' got
their name from pale eerie lights that appeared over bogs and
marshes in England. These ghostly lights, which bobbed along
like a lantern in someone's hand, were called 'Corpse
Candles'.Candles were said to be signals from the souls of men
lost at sea. ["Halloween and Satanism", Philips, p. 33-34]
Celts often hollowed out a turnip and carved a grotesque face on
it to fool demons. They carried such lanterns to light their way
in the dark and to ward off evil spirits ... While the turnip
continues to be popular in Europe today, the pumpkin has
replaced it in America. 'Jack' is a nickname for 'John', which
is a common slang word meaning 'man'. Jack-O-Lanterns literally
means 'man with a lantern'. [Pagan Traditions of the Holidays",
The Druids originated the practice of hollowing out the
Jack-O-Lanterns and filling them with human fat. Whenever a
raiding party came to a home to demand of the husband that
someone inside be surrendered as a human sacrifice, they would
light a Jack-O-Lantern filled with human fat; if the husband
relented and provided one of his loved ones as a sacrifice, the
Druid party would leave Jack-O-Lantern on the porch. This
lantern would be tell the other raiding parties and the demonic
host that this party had surrendered a human for sacrifice and
that the remaining people inside were to be left alone.
Guaranteeing that no one else in the house would be killed that
night was the "Treat".
If the husband refused to surrender one of his loved ones, a
"Trick" would be placed upon the house. The members of the
raiding party would draw a large hexagram using human blood on
the front door; they got the blood for the hexagram from a dead
body they dragged around with them using a cabletow. The demonic
host would be attracted to this hexagram and would invade the
house, causing one or more of the inhabitants to either go
insane or die from fright. ["America's Occult Holidays", p. 20]
This is the true origin of "Trick-or-Treat" and the
Jack-O-Lantern. Do you really want to take your kids
Specially Associated With Halloween
God lists Satanic practices that He absolutely forbids, on the
pain of death! Every one of them is uniquely associated with
Enchantment -- Act of influencing by charms and
incantation using the practice of magical arts.
2. Witchcraft -- Dealing with demonic spirits, using
their prescribed methods, commonly called rituals and the "magick
arts". The Bible forbids it, as in Galatians 5:19-20. Today,
thanks to "Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings,
witchcraft is skyrocketing in popularity. TV shows that
depict witches are "Bewitched" and "Buffy The Vampire
Slayer", to just mention a couple. Go to a video store
sometime and walk down the "Horror" aisle, where you will
see the popularity of Witchcraft in America today.
3. Sorcery -- Use of power gained from the prescribed
rituals demanded by the demonic host. Once the witch or
wizard performs the particular ritual correctly, the demonic
host is required to provide the power to accomplish that
action desired by the witch.
4. Divination -- Fortune telling and seeing into the
future. God wants us to trust in Him and His power, and not
worry about tomorrow. Satan, on the other hand, loves to get
people consumed by the idea that they can know what lies
ahead of them.
5. Wizardry -- The art or practices of a wizard,
sorcery. A wizard or witch is one skilled in the magick
arts, a sorcerer.
6. Necromancy -- Communication with the dead.
Specifically, conjuring up the spirits of the dead for
purposes of magically revealing the future or influencing
the course of events.
7. Charm -- The practice of putting a spell on
someone in order to change or control their mind and/or
behavior. Wizards love to get their enemies "one-on-one"
because they can "charm" them through the use of ritual done
before the meeting, and by the demonic host residing within
him. Adolf Hitler followed this practice closely as he dealt
with the leaders of Europe, Britain, and Russia. British
Prime Minister Chamberlain was totally charmed by Hitler as
he sought to appease the German dictator in Munich in 1938;
Chamberlain was so totally "charmed" by Hitler, he
enthusiastically proclaimed after returning from Munich that
he had achieved "peace in our time".
When dealing with a powerful member of the Illuminati, do
not attempt to meet with him, nor place any confidence in
the testimony of people who have met with him. A "charm"
ritual is easily performed and results in the leader exuding
confidence, character, and sincerity they most assuredly do
8. Stargazing or Astrology -- Divination of the
supposed influence of the stars and other heavenly bodies
upon human lives and the affairs of nations. Occultists
literally order their lives according to Astrology and
9. Soothsaying -- foretelling events and prophesying
through a spirit other than the Holy Spirit.
10. Prognostication -- To foretell from signs and
symptoms, also prophesying without the Holy Spirit.
11. Magic -- Tapping into the power of the demonic
realm through the use of prescribed ritual so that the
action carried out is accomplished through demonic power.
All these activities
are uniquely associated with the activities and traditions of
Halloween! Christians have no business participating in
Halloween. To do so is to act against a great number of
Scriptures in which God uses the strongest possible language to
forbid it. In fact, in most instances, God decreed that people
practicing these activities be put to death!
Yet, we see many churches having Halloween parties in which many
of these pagan practices are followed! The Apostle Paul gave us
strong warning that should stop us dead in our tracks. Listen:
"Let no one
delude and deceive you with empty excuses and groundless
arguments for these sins, for through these things the wrath
of God comes upon the sons of rebellion and disobedience."
Stop listening to
people giving you "empty excuses and groundless arguments for
these sins", for if you go ahead and participate in this most
evil holiday, God shall surely not look away.
One final note on Halloween: if you have been paying attention,
you will know that these practices form the heart and soul of
the Harry Potter novels and movies. Harry Potter is a wizard,
and he comes from a family of witches and wizards [Generational
Witchcraft]. His entire existence within these novels revolves
around the Hogwarts School of Wizardry and Witchcraft, where
Harry and his friends learn all of these 11 forbidden practices.
