Well, with Halloween coming up on 10/31 I thought I’d write a poem
against it. It is commonly known that Halloween is not just a holiday
fiction, but the occult today still observes it as a festival of
darkness. Seances and human sacrifice can still be associated with
day. The world of spiritualism says that Halloween is the day when the
gateway to the spirit world is the most open. So, on Halloween, we
should not have anything to do with such darkness. We should pray for
the devil to be bound. Actually, at my church I am conducting a prayer
vigil from 8 pm till midnight, on October 31. Anyone near enough to
come is invited to drop in when you can and stay as long as you can.
We’ll be praying for not just spiritual victory, but anyone with a need
is welcome to share it. We’ll also pray about issues of terrorism and
such. The address is 4259 East Snow Rd. Berrien Springs, Michigan.
Those of you too far to come are invited to take time that evening to
pray. This week’s poem I wrote against the observance of this day. It
has a lot of word play, especially on the word, “Boo!”. Instead of
saying “boo” to scare people, we should “boo” the devil in this drama
life to show our disapproval. Enjoy.
Boo (27 October 2002)
Is what is said
When one wishes to scare
In terrific tumult of frivolous fright.
It brings to the thoughts
Images of ghosts and ghouls
Monsters and madmen
That trouble and terrorize all existence.
And so I must ask
What part should lovers of peace and order
Have with this festival of hollowing chaos?
What place should Heaven’s children of life
Find in demons’ dance of death?
How can the servants of light
Move unequally yoked with darkness
As they play the unholy games of hell?
Should not all God’s people
Amid this drama of good vs evil
Stand up with faith
When Satan rejoices
And boo the devil off the stage?
All soldiers of righteousness
Come to pray
To proclaim God’s Victory
And frighten the foe with denunciation
As we shout resistance
In Jesus’ Name:
Anyway, the vigil is at the All Nations Seventh-day Adventist
in Berrien Springs. Hope to see as many of you who live near enough.
