RESTORED 8/24/23
We are coming to the darkest time of year and I am not talking about the lack of SUNSHINE.  Every year I try to bring to your attention the unholy days and their nature so that you can prepare yourself.  This time of year everyone should be very cautious and alert because there are people of multiple cults and religions seeking out victims for torture, abuse and sacrifice.   EVERYONE should be praying for protection for themselves and their families, and for the greater population as well.  There are many innocents who have no one to pray for them.  Lift them up in your prayer time.  Ask the Lord to deliver them out the hands of evil people and demonic spirits.

Pray also that all the plots and plans of evil beings, human or otherwise, will not be successful.  That God will protect us from deception and destruction.

Review this entire post.  Don’t miss any of it.  Pray and ask GOD to reveal TRUTH to you and to prepare you to battle against the forces of darkness.

September 21 – Mabon – allegedly a time of Illuminati Human Sacrifice 

Beyond these Realms — Mabon Stew


The autumn equinox marks the beginning of the thinning of the veil separating the spirit world from the physical (with the thinnest night on Samhain, Oct 31), which allows demonic spirits to pass through. It is the day when the hours of daylight and darkness are equal, and in the pagan world this holiday is called Mabon. It’s also referred to as the Harvest Festival, or the Feast of the Ingathering. It’s the pagan version of Thanksgiving and sharing of food. The worship of gods and goddesses occurs in order to keep their blessings during the cold winter months ahead. It’s also the midpoint between Lughnasa and Samhain. A human sacrifice is desired for the gods and goddesses in order to protect the people from the winter.

Harvest festivals are held annually on this seemingly innocuous date

Expecting the Harvest Moon this month? You’re not alone!

The full Moon that happens nearest to the autumnal equinox (September 22 or 23) always takes on the name “Harvest Moon” instead of a traditional name—a rule that often places the Harvest Moon in the month of September. However, when September’s full Moon occurs early in the month, the full Moon of early October lands nearest to the autumnal equinox and therefore takes on the Harvest Moon title instead.

That’s the case in 2020, when October will experience two full Moons: one on October 1 (the Harvest Moon) and the other on the 31st (the Hunter’s Moon and a Blue Moon, too)Learn more about the Harvest Moon.

Vatican to publish ‘tools’ to implement Global Compact on Education

The Congregation for Catholic Education is set to release three documents to assist Catholic schools and universities in putting into practice the Global Compact on Education, which aims to revitalize the Church’s commitment to young people.

By Devin Watkins

Catholic schools and universities across the globe are continuing to implement the Global Compact on Education, which Pope Francis relaunched in October 2020.

The initiative seeks to unite educators in the mission of helping Catholic education create fraternity, peace, and justice.

Surge in local initiatives

The Vatican’s Congregation for Catholic Education, which spearheads the Compact, released a press statement on Friday, expressing support for the many local initiatives which have begun despite the setback caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

A global event was initially scheduled for 14 May 2020, but was cancelled as the coronavirus spread.

“Nevertheless, almost everywhere there has been an increase in the number of local initiatives, some of which have also taken on significant importance at various official levels,” read the communique.

Three tools

The Congregation announced that it will release three documents, or “tools”, on 5 October, which will help Catholics schools implement the Compact.

Vademecum—or guide—will be directed toward educators “who have the task of accompanying children and young people in their various formal and informal types of formation.”

A book, entitled Education between Crisis and Hope, seeks to offer guidelines for implementing the five central themes of the Compact: “interreligious and intercultural dialogue; dignity and human rights; the culture of peace and citizenship; fraternity and cooperation; and, technology and holistic ecology.”

The third tool—an Exemplar—offers an agreement that can be used at the local level “to create an operational alliance to put into practice the Global Compact for Education.”

Interreligious initiative

The three tools will be published in five languages on the same day as the Meeting between Representatives of Religions, on Tuesday, 5 October.

The meeting gathers 20-odd representatives of the world’s different religious confessions, with the goal of revitalizing “our commitment towards and with young people”.

Culture of dialogue

Pope Francis originally launched the Global Compact on Education on 12 September 2019, and then relaunched it with a video message on 15 October 2020, following the pandemic-induced delay.

He has connected the initiative with his encyclicals Laudato si’ and Fratelli tutti.

According to the Congregation for Catholic Education, the Pope is inviting everyone to make a commitment to young people, “so that they become central to a culture of dialogue and a civilization of harmony.”

[Barcelona, Spain, February 26, 2023] Huawei announced it has joined the UNESCO Global Alliance for Literacy (GAL) today as part of the company’s lead up to the Mobile World Congress 2023. The announcement was made at a Digital Talent Summit co-hosted by Huawei and the Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) which serves as the Secretariat of the GAL.

At the Summit, Huawei and the UIL agreed to jointly promote the use of technology to raise literacy. The two parties also signed a cooperation agreement under which Huawei will fund an expansion of the UIL’s current initiatives to enhance educators’ use of technology in developing countries. Currently, the UIL initiative operates in Bangladesh, Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Nigeria, and Pakistan.

Huawei is the first private company to become an associate member of the GAL and the company is excited it’s own goals align with the GAL’s vision of eradicating digital illiteracy in young people.

UIL Director David Atchoarena explained at the event, “Our rapidly changing world calls for concerted efforts and strong partnerships to achieve quality education and lifelong learning for all.”

Atchoarena continued, “Huawei’s expertise in the area of innovation in learning will be a great asset to the Global Alliance for Literacy. Collaborative projects such as ours will ensure that no one is left behind on this journey.”

Huawei’s Vice President of Corporate Communications Vicky Zhang also commented, “Getting the right education is often the key to success in life. As a major player in the technology sector, Huawei feels it has a responsibility to provide technology skills in all parts of the world, trying our best to include as many people as possible.”

“We are proud to join forces with UNESCO to better deliver on this responsibility,” Zhang added.

Huawei believes digital talent is a key driver in achieving digital transformation, solid economic growth, and better quality of life. Since 2008, Huawei has offered a wide and expanding range of talent programs. Under its Seeds for the Future umbrella, Huawei provides tens of thousands of people every year with scholarships and digital training courses targeting all age groups. The company also organizes and sponsors tech competitions where students can expand their knowledge, win prizes, and make new friends.

So far, Huawei’s Seeds for the Future program has helped nurture more than 2.2 million digital talents in over 150 countries. The company’s ICT Academy can train about 200,000 students each year. In 2021, Huawei announced it had already invested US$150 million and planned invest another US$150 million in digital talent development before 2026, which is expected to benefit an additional 3 million people.

Three Prophetic Dreams from Pastor Dana

Jun 25, 2020
Pastor Dana Coverstone of Living Word Ministries Assemblies of God in Burkesville, KY shares three prophetic dreams he has had and their relationship to current as well as near future world events. Website:

  🔥Pastor Dana Coverstone What will happen in September October, November 2020🔥

“BRACE YOURSELF!” Prophetic dreams about September and November (Pastor Dana Coverstone)

Everything happened according to his dream…


Last December, Living Word Ministries pastor Dana Coverstone of Burkesville, KY had a vivid and sobering dream involving the months March and June, 2020. When those months came, everything he had seen in his dream came to pass: protests, masks, long lines into hospitals, doctors with syringes, people on ventilators, newspaper headlines, ambulances, fires, courthouses being surround by angry people, some with shotguns. He heard the words, “BRACE YOURSELF!  BRACE YOURSELF!  BRACE YOURSELF!”

Two weeks ago, on June 22, Coverstone had two similar–but even more intense–dreams. He got the same words, “BRACE YOURSELF!” with the words, “PART 2.” This time the events he watched involved this coming September and November. Here is an abbreviated summary:

November was especially intense. This time, after a finger underlined the word ‘November,’ I saw a fist ball up and HIT the calendar and it exploded into the wall. The numbers went 3-D and were flying everywhere.  There was a cloud of chaos: armed protestors, people fighting and pummeling each other in the streets. Businesses and schools closed–there were cobwebs in schools as if they had been closed a long time. Bank buildings with roofs being taken off–money was flying through the roof as if being vacuumed out, the wealth was being taken. I saw politicians in back rooms making deals and laughing… I saw Washington DC burning, blazing, cities on fire.

“I saw troops in cities, the blue helmets of the United Nations, military things going on: ‘Round up these people! Pick up these people! Secure this quadrant, secure that area!’ There was no sign of President Trump or of leadership in D.C.  People were hiding in homes and garages; churches and homes were being burned. I saw absolute chaos. It was civil war.

“I’ve been hearing those words ‘BRACE YOURSELF!’ for seven months but that fist punch on ‘NOVEMBER, 2020’ got my attention. Incredible, terrible, awful, messy, bad things will happen in this nation, not just for unbelievers but for God’s people as well. I say this not to scare people but to warn people

“It will destroy some people’s faith. Satan’s aim is to kill this nation. There’s an olive press moment coming for the church. Christians are going to get crushed and squeezed and pressed down. Endure to the end, however hard it gets.”

(For second dream–about effect on banks and currency–watch video.)

Journey to three cities in the Middle East – Palmyra and Aleppo in Syria and Mosul in Iraq – in this virtual exhibition organized by the Arab World Institute, Paris, and created in collaboration with UNESCO. These cities, among the oldest uninterrupted human settlements in the world, have recently been devastated by war. To preserve these sites for future generations, Age Old Cities offers large-scale projections and digital reconstructions (more than eleven feet tall) of iconic monuments and ancient structures(SO, holograms of the Ancient Temples and Sacrificial Sites!) rising from ruins to their former glory. The dynamic images in this immersive experience underscore the critical importance of cultural heritage and architectural preservation as well as the vital role digital reconstruction can play in safeguarding the past. (Rather resurrecting PAGANISM)

Exhibition created by the Arab World Institute, Paris, in collaboration with Iconem and in partnership with UNESCO and Ubisoft, with support from the University of Lausanne and L’Oeuvre d’Orient

Now, by visiting the display in our nation’s capital, through the witchcraft of technology you can virtually experience visiting the actual site of the Temple of BAAL.  Not just see a replica of the Gate… but walk through the Gates and into the Temple itself.  You can virtually stand on the desecrated ground and experience the spirit that dwells there.

SIAL - Inspire Food Business


Coming at the end of 6 months of quiet business, SIAL Paris will constitute, perhaps more significantly than ever, the major global event for the industryfrom 18 to 22 October 2020: as a catalyst for businessand an acknowledged melting pot for worldwide innovation, SIAL Paris will kick off the recovery of food exports all over the world.”Own the Change, (Gee, I wonder just what kind of global change they have in mind for our food supply…maybe cannibalism, or eating insects, or recycled poop, or GMO vegetables, or artificial meat? ) the central theme of the next edition of SIAL Paris announced several months ago, resonates all the more strongly.  Will life go back to “how it used to be”? That’s entirely up to us! This period of forced retreat will undoubtedly leave a lasting mark on us all. It is up to everyone to make their contribution to building tomorrow’s world. In this respect, “Own the Change“, the central theme of the next edition of SIAL Paris announced several months ago, resonates all the more strongly. It will be an opportunity for the entire industry to share and develop what tomorrow’s world will be like: What food for tomorrow?How can we feed the planet in a healthy and sustainable way? What balances should there be between globalization and regionalism?  The watchword here will undoubtedly be agility: working together, we will succeed in organising this major global food industry meeting. Your continued support is extremely valuable and vital to us.  

Sial – In geology, the term ‘sial’refers to the composition of the upper layer of the Earth‘s crust, namely rocks rich in silicates and aluminium minerals. It is sometimes equated with the continental crust because it is absent in the wide oceanic basins,[1] but “sial” is a geochemical term rather than a plate tectonic term.[2] As these elements are less dense than the majority of the earth’s elements, they tend to be concentrated in the upper layer of the crust.

The uppermost layer of the crust is called sial consisting of silicate and Aluminium (Si =silicate, Al= aluminium). On an average, the thickness of sial is till 25 km from the surface. The continents are composed mainly of lighter Rock materialformed from silicon and Aluminium, so the sial Is thick over the continents and very thin or absent on the ocean floor especially the Pacific Ocean. Average density of sial is 2.7 gm/cc.

Geologists often refer to the rocks in this layer as felsic, because they contain high levels of feldspar, an aluminium silicate mineral series. However, the sial “actually has quite a diversity of rock types, including large amounts of basaltic rocks.”[3]

The name ‘sial’ was taken from the first two letters of silicaand of alumina. The sial is often contrasted to the ‘sima,’ the next lower layer in the Earth, which is often exposed in the ocean basins; and the nickel-iron alloycore, sometimes referred to as the “Nife”. These geochemical divisions of the Earth’s interior (with these names) were first proposed by Eduard Suess in the 19th century. This model of the outer layers of the earth has been confirmed by petrographic, gravimetric, and seismic evidence.[4]

TURNS out that the religious festivals around the world are all based on MAGIC/Witches Wheel of the Year, celebrating the Solstices.   This should come as no surprise, because at one time the entire world was Pagan, except for GOD’s chosen.  



From a rubber duck race in Germany to a month-long celebration of the supernatural in Salem, Musement takes a look at ten events happening around the world in October.

Autumn is in full effect, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. Here’s a look at ten events happening around the world this October.

1. October 1 – 31: The Festival of the Dead, Salem, Massachusetts

Salem, known for its infamous 17th-century witch hunt, is still cloaked with an aura of magic and mystique, so it’s quite fitting that October marks the month-long Festival of the Dead celebrating the supernatural, concluding on Halloween.

Today, the witches of Salem, and those who gather there from afar, honour this time of year with the Festival of The Dead, an annual event that, according to its website, “explores death’s macabre customs, heretical histories and strange rituals.” One event of particular interest is the Dumb Supper. The name comes from the fact that the entire 4-course meal is consumed in complete and solemn silence. This silence, again from the Festival of the Dead website, “not only allows people to grieve their dead but creates a portal for the spirits to come through.” Guests are encouraged to bring photos and mementos to summon the souls of their loved ones on the other side. The Dumb Supper is an ancient tradition.  Source


2. October 5: Rubber Duck Race, Germany

Yes, you read that correctly. Each year, around 7,000 rubber duckies “gather” in Tübingen to “race” in the Neckar River. Want to join in on the fun? It’s open to anyone who has a rubber duck. Otherwise, you can rent one (or as many as you want) for 3€ (each) — just make sure to write your name on the duck. The race takes about 45 minutes and the winner receives a €1,000 voucher while the runners-up are also shown some prize love.


3. October 5: Republic Day, Portugal

This annual holiday commemorates the end of the monarchy and the establishment of a republic in 1910. The government holds a few ceremonial events, but overall, the national holiday offers the Portuguese a 24-hour reprieve from the daily grind.


4. October 7 – 9: Nagasaki Kunchi Festival, Japan

This 400-year-old festival celebrates the multicultural history of Nagasaki, incorporating Dutch influences as a nod to the city’s time as a Dutch colony.

Nagasaki Kunchi Festival  – OCT 7 ~ OCT 9; 7am -8pm

This vibrant celebration of Nagasaki’s multicultural history is the event in the area’s autumn calendar. Dating back nearly 400 years, and incorporates different aspects of Chinese and Dutch cultures, which have played a role in the city’s history. The festival’s name is believed to come from ku-nichi (“9th day”), the ninth day of the ninth monthof the lunar calendar. The Kunchi Festival is three days long and draws in pretty much the whole city. Over 59 Nagasaki neighborhood dance groups are involved, with five or six performing dashimono dances each year. Floats—jaodori dragons, shishi lions, takara-bune, and Chinese and Dutch ships—are paraded around the city by the odoricho groups. The Nagasaki Kunchi Festival has been made an Intangible Folk Cultural Property.

Takayama Festival  From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Takayama Matsuri Float


The Takayama Festivals (高山祭Takayama Matsuri) in Takayama in Japan started in the 16th to 17th century.[1] The festivals are believed to have been started during the rule of the Kanamori family. Correspondence dated 1692 place the origin to 40 years prior to that date.[2] One of the festivals is held on 14 and 15 April and the other on 9 and 10 October.[3]

The Spring Takayama Festival is centered on the Hie Shrine. The shrine is also known as the Sanno Shrine, and the spring festival is also known as the Sanno Festival. The Sanno Festival is held to pray for a good harvest and the Autumn Festival is for giving thanks.[3]

The Autumn festival is centered on the Sakurayama Hachiman Shrine and is referred to as the Hachiman Festival. It is held after the crops are harvested. The fall festival is one of the three largest festivals in Japan. The other two are Kyoto‘s Gion Matsuri and the Chichibu Matsuri.[4]


Here is a great holiday… Let’s terrify and torment little children.  Oh…ya, that is just like Halloween! And the Day of the Dead, and KRUMPUS!

Japan’s Ancient Demonic Pagan Festival “Paantu” 
Trolling the internet (via Dangerous Minds) I came across this interesting Demonic festival that takes place every year in Miyakojima, Okinawa called the Paantu Festival. When I see pictures of the males in full costume it reminds me that pagan traditions can be found everywhere from Africa to Europe

5. October 13: The Círio de Nazaré, Brazil

Two million people participate in this festival in Belém (Bel em) dedicated to Our Lady of Nazareth. Fireworks, processions, flowers and good time mark the occasion.


6. October 22: The World Series, America

While the teams still have yet to be decided as do the cities, one thing is for sure: Major League Baseball’s leading American and National League teams will face off for the 115th edition of the World Series. The first pitch will be tossed on October 22 to mark the start of at least four (seven max) games.


7. October 26 – 27: Polar Circle Marathon, Greenland

Arguably the coolest marathon of them all, pun intended. Taking place in Kangerlussuaq at 66° northern latitude, the intense marathon in one of the most remote corners of the world has taken place annually since 2001.


8. October 27: Diwali, the Festival of Lights, India

This Hindu Festival, one of the most popular holidays in India, is celebrated by a few faiths. Indians place rows of clay lamps outside their homes in honor of the triumph of inner light over darkness/good over evil — quite heartwarming if we do say so ourselves. The five-day festival marks the start of the Hindu new year. In addition, fireworks spectacles about and homes contain even more incredible decor.

Diwali – Mumbai, India
30 October – 3 November
As the Hindu god Rama returns home from battle and exile, believers everywhere light oil lamps to show him the way. This “festival of light” is the most significant event on the Indian calendar – akin to Christmas in the West – marking the end of the harvest season with feasts, gifts and prayers. Homes are festooned with jasmine flowers and candles, while vibrantly coloured sands shaped like lotus flowers form welcome mats for visitors. Women wear their best and most colourful saris, and fireworks brighten the darkness of night. Though originally an ancient religious festival, Diwali is celebrated by even the non-observant who mark the occasion as a time of post-harvest abundance, renewal and inner enlightenment – and foreign visitors are heartily invited to do the same.

9. October 27: Masskara, Philippines

And another heartwarming festival! Masskara (MASK) is characterized by smiley masks and colorful clothing and adornments as a way to banish the grief that swept the city of Bacolod, in the 1980s. Though the grief has passed, the holiday has lived on the city has even been nicknamed the “City of Smiles”.


10. October 31: Halloween

All Hallow’s Eve! In many places, kids put on costumes and go trick-or-treating. Yet there are traditions all around the world to celebrate the holiday derived from an ancient Celtic feast, many of which tie into the subsequent religious holidays that fall on November 1 (All Saint’s Day) and November 2 (All Soul’s Day).

The Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere. Wikipedia

It is hard for modern, civilized people to wrap their head around the idea that human beings could be capable of human sacrifice and cannabalism.  There has been a concerted effort to cover up the truth.  But, the TRUTH will be revealed.  God’s word says that there is NOTHING HIDDEN that will not be revealed.  

October 31 – Samhain, also known as Halloween, or All Hallows Eve. This date is the Illuminati’s highest day of human sacrifice


Oct 28-30 Satanist High
(Holy Day related to Halloween)
blood human sacrifice each day any age (male or female)
Oct 30-31 All Hallows Eve and Halloween Night blood and sexual sexual climax, association with the demons, animal and/or human sacrifice any age (male or female and/or animal)

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:

1. 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      Source



Samhain, (aka All Hallows Eve, aka Halloween), is a three day fire festival in which sacrifices were given to fires for the sun god. Samhain is a festival for the dead, as Beltaine is a festival for the living. There are a slew of traditions that occur during this festival of Samhain from Oct 29-31st, with the culmination on Halloween night. Samhain is the Celtic lord of the dead and is considered a stag god. A stag god in the occult is always a reference to the ancient male god Nimrod. He was depicted with one horn, or multiple horns appearing as antlers like Moloch:



To understand more about this holiday, we have to revisit the information about the occult and pagans. I already explained the basis for the occult attachments to the holiday at the preface to the post, but there needs to be more explanation into the Druid priesthood. The Celtic people came to the British Isles and had a priesthood known as the Druids during the Iron Ages. Wikipedia claims that there is little known about the Druids, while other theorists and people who have spent time with the Illuminati and/or occult claim to know the entire story. What is claimed is that the Druids held all authority in the tribes, and told the people when/who they should marry, when to go to war, etc. What is known and taken as fact is that they practiced human sacrifice (hence why we see so much sacrifice during these holidays).
The famous Stonehenge location is where the Druids would go to worship their stag god on the eight occult holidays per year (there are many Stonehenges across the globe; this one in particular is the well-known one). They would perform sacrifices at sites such as these, through barbaric rituals such as the ‘fountain of blood’ in which they’d hang a person with a rope tied tight around their neck and slit the throat to create a huge wave of blood. Druids would gather at Stonehenge on Samhain with gourds and pumpkins (originally called ‘Corpse Candles’ or now commonly known as Jack-O-Lanterns) and fill them with human fat, taken from previous sacrifices given to gods. They’d also bring cauldrons and light them on fire, warming them up for the sacrificial ceremony to be described later (spoiler alert: it’s for the tradition of bobbing for apples). The Druids would bang on the doors of local nobilities and yell “Trick or Treat” to see if the lord of the manor came to provide a ‘treat.’ A treat would be one of the servants or even household members given up for sacrificing that night. The reward for the ‘treat’ would be one of the pumpkins filled with human fat and they would light it so that everyone within the house was protected from the demons summoned on Samhain. If you didn’t give up an offering you’d get a six pointed star inside of a circle (a hexagram) painted with blood on the front door. This would be an attractive force for the demons and the people inside would be plagued with the demonic curse during Samhain.


Another theory is that the people would leave treats of food and candies outside for the demonic spirits as they traveled the material world on October 31st. The treats would keep the evil spirits at bay from plaguing the household.

The human sacrifices would be gathered up, and then lined up as the Druids would throw apples into the cauldrons and give the humans a chance to pull the apples out with their teeth (the cauldrons were boiling hot) for a chance for freedom. Some went for the chance and could be burned with permanent damage to their eyes, ears, throat, etc.; while others did not. Those who did not get the apple on the first try were beheaded immediately, while those who avoided the challenge would be sacrificed in a fiery death. They were taken to a “wicker man” with various wicker cages inside of it and placed inside of it (just like the film with Nicolas Cage). The wicker man would be lit on fire as a sacrifice to the gods, drawing us back yet again to the Nimrod and Semiramis connection. It should also be noted that the annual Burning Man celebration is a reenactment of this ceremony.




Another tradition is to dress up in costumes, called ‘guising.’ This came about because the veil between spiritual world and physical world is the thinnest on Samhain and the departed souls can come visit their loved ones. The lit flames in the sacrificial areas are a beacon for the spirits to find and enter into our world (that’s the point of the wicker man; to provide sacrifices and a guiding light for the spirit world). They believed this couldn’t filter out the evil spirits, so the Druid priests would wear scary clothing to keep the evil spirits away.

Another origin for trick or treating would come from the church belief that on All Souls Day members should pray for souls that are stuck in purgatory, a transitional state. If the soul could get enough prayers it would be bumped up into Heaven. The Halloween time frame is when children would go door to door collecting soul cakes and prayers for souls to get out of purgatory.

People used to employ the Devil to help them predict their future. This was done through several seemingly odd activities, including examination of eaten apples to determine if the shape of the remains were similar to a letter. That letter would in-turn be symbolic of the name of the mate the person could have. Other divinations included telling how many children one would have, where one would live, etc. Attempts to read the future are occult in nature, and Halloween is no exception. In fact, it’s the most popular time of year for divination. The bats, cats, owls and other animals known for Halloween were believed to be incarnations of the Devil as part of the divination process. The witch could use these animals (Satan) to help her predict the future.

Halloween is the night the stag god (male) takes power over the world, and remains in power through the lead up to the female spring goddess taking over again (Semiramis) on March 21st. On May 1st she is in full glory as the Earth Mother at Beltaine, while she leaves as an old lady at Halloween to start the cycle over again.    SOURCE




[We offer the following article for your consideration.  We haven’t checked every single assertion in this item, but it does show the concerns we should have for this pagan holiday that has become a favorite one in the present age.]


Halloween: A Covenant with Death and Hell!


When you hear the word “Halloween” what images appear? What “spirit” is invoked at the whisper of Halloween? Halloween openly promotes death, devils, witches and flagrant “appearances of evil” (1 Thessalonians 5:22). Halloween leaves most people scratching their heads questioning, “How and where did Halloween come from?” This article unearths the hellish tomb of Halloween to exhume its sinister “covenant with death and hell.”

Halloween began over 2,000 years ago among the Celts and their pagan priests called the Druids. The Druids are, without question, history’s king of the occult. Witchcraft, Satanism, paganism and virtually all facets of the occult acquire instruction from the Druids. From the popular jack-o’-lantern, trick-or-treat, costumes, to the pranks, ghoulish ghosts, demons, goblins and witches – Halloween owes its morbid birth to the Druids.

Halloween-the day itself is of Druidic origin . (Myers, Robert J. Celebrations: The Complete Book of American Holidays, p. 258)

The mystic rites and ceremonies with which Hallow’en was originally observed had their origin among the Druids… (Douglas, George William. The American Book of Days, p. 566) The Druids celebrated two special nights of the year: Beltane and Samhain. Beltane took place on May 1 and marked the birth of summer. Samhain occurred on November 1 and signified the death of summer. Samhain, a night celebrating death and hell, was the Druids most important ritual. It was a terrifying night of human sacrifices. And it was the original Halloween.

The Druids believed, during Samhain, the mystic veil separating the dead from the living opened. The Druids taught these roaming spirits loosed on Samhain went searching for a body to possess. The frightened Celts would masquerade as demons, evil spirits and ghosts, hoping to convince the roaming evil spirits, they were another evil spirit, and leave them alone. The Celts also prepared meals as “treats” to appease the evil spirits from “tricks” or malicious acts; hence our custom of “trick or treat.” The Druids performed horrifying human sacrifices and other vile rituals during Samhain . Let there be no doubt-Samhain night was a terrifying “covenant with death, and with hell.” And let there be no doubt – Samhain was the original Halloween night.

All histories of Halloween inevitably wind back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain … (Skal, David J. Death Makes a Holiday: The Cultural History of Halloween, p. 20)

Halloween had its origins in the festival of Samhain among the Celts of ancient Britain and Ireland . (Encyclopedia Britannica 2005 “Halloween”)

Halloween can be traced directly back to Samhain , the ancient Celtic harvest festival honoring the Lord of the Dead . (Thompson, Sue Ellen. Holiday Symbols and Customs, p. 251)

The rituals of the Druids reek from the deepest hell. Their most repulsive activities involve their human sacrifices of children on the night of Samhain or Halloween.

First-born sacrifices are mentioned in a poem in the Dindshenchas which records that children were sacrificed each Samhain … (Rogers, Nicholas. Halloween: From Pagan Ritual to Party Night , p. 17)

Halloween. That was the eve of Samhain … firstborn children were sacrificed… Samhain eve was a night of dread and danger. National Geographic . May 1977, pp. 625-626)

The Druids would drink their victim’s blood and eat their flesh.

They [Druids] sacrificed victims by shooting them with arrows, impaling them on stakes, stabbing them, slitting their throats over cauldrons (and then drinking the blood)… (Guiley, Rosemary Ellen. Harper’s Encyclopedia of Mystical & Paranormal Experience , p. 167)

Therefore we cannot too highly appreciate our debt to the Romans for having put an end to this monstrous cult, whereby to murder a man was an act of the greatest devoutness, and to eat his flesh most beneficial. (Pliny, Natural History , xxx, 13)

The Druids “counted it an honorable thing” to eat their father’s flesh and perform incest with their mothers and sisters. …since they are man-eaters as well as heavy eaters, and since, further, they count it an honorable thing, when their fathers die, to devour them, and openly to have intercourse, not only with the other women, but also with their mothers and sisters ;… (Strabo, Geography )

May I remind you, this is what occurred on the original Halloween night! Today, Halloween lives and breathes with the foul stench of the diabolical Druids.

The Druids also celebrated the festival of Beltane. The word Beltane (Beltaine, Beltinne, Beltain, Beiltein) literally means the “fires of Bel.” Bel is the same god called Baal, found over 80 times in the King James Bible. The Lord condemns Baal worship probably more than any other false “god.”

…then the Druids lit the Baal-Tinne, the holy, goodly fire of Baal. (Wilde, Lady Francesca Speranza. Ancient Legends, Mystic Charms, and Superstitions of Ireland) 

The god whom the Druids worshipped was Baal, as the blazing Baal-fires show, and… children were offered in sacrifice to Baal. (Hislop, Alexander. The Two Babylons , p. 232)


The original Halloween was a hellish night of Baal worship and child sacrifice. And most of our current Halloween customs derived directly from Baal rituals!

On November first was Samhain [Halloween]… Fires were built as a thanksgiving to Baal… (Kelley, Ruth Edna, The Book of Hallowe’en , Lothrop, Lee and Shepard Co. Boston, 1919)

The mystic rites and ceremonies with which Hallow’en was originally observed had their origin among the Druids… ancient Baal festivals from which many of the Hallow’en customs are derived. (Douglas, George William. The American Book of Days , p. 569)

Baal is also a synonym for the devil. (Burns, Cathy. Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, p. 327)

Halloween glorifies death in worship to Baal or the devil!

The Druid festival of Samhain was a celebration of death. Strutting its hellish death images of skulls, skeletons, ghosts, demons, devils and incarnate evil – today’s Halloween glorifies Death. David Skal titled his history of Halloween – Death Makes a Holiday :

The grand marshal of the Halloween parade is, and always has been, Death . (Skal, David J. Death Makes a Holiday: The Cultural History of Halloween, p. 18)

Halloween can be traced directly back to Samhain, the ancient Celtic harvest festival honoring the Lord of the Dead. (Thompson, Sue Ellen. Holiday Symbols and Customs, p. 251)

The Devil glorifies death. Hebrews 2:14 says, “…that through death he [Jesus] might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;” Proverbs 8:36 says all they that hate the Lord “… love death .” Revelation 6:8 says the rider of the antichrist’s pale horse, “…and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him .”


Understanding the hellish history of Halloween – why in the world did decent people so embrace it? What magic “trick” transformed rancid Samhain into the giddy Halloween?

As the Catholic missionaries swarmed Britain and Ireland seeking the mass conversion to Catholicism their orders from Pope Gregory in 601 A.D. was to cunningly convert the Druid rituals into Catholic rituals. The Catholics converted the ritual of Samhain into the festival of All Saint’s Day, a day of celebration and prayer to dead “Saints.”

Halloween begins well over 2,000 years ago in the British Isles . Here, we find the holiday stripped to its most essential element: a night when Celtic tribes communed with the spirits of the ancestral dead. These grand and glorious pagan celebrations were assimilated by the Catholic church… Rather than extinguish old customs, the church leaders provided Christian versions of them: from the Middles Ages on, All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day replaced the ancient Celtic celebrations of the dead. (Bannatyne, Lesley Pratt, Halloween: An American Holiday, an American History , Facts on File, Inc., New York, 1990 p. x)

The Catholic festival of All Saints Day was also known as All Hallows Day, with the word “hallow” replacing “saints.” The day before All Hallows Day (October 31) was recognized as All Hallows Eve. Eventually, All Hallows Eve became Hallows Eve; hallow’even; hallow’en and ultimately today’s Halloween.

All Saints’ Day perpetuated the pagan Samhain of November Eve. (Bonwick, James, Irish Druids and Old Irish Religions , Dorset Press, 1984 (1986ed), p.87)

Many traditional beliefs and customs associated with Samhain…continued to be practiced on 31 October, known as the Eve of All Saints, the Eve of All Hallows, or Hallows Even. It is the glossing of the name Hallow Even that has given us the name Hallowe’en (Santino, Jack editor, Halloween and Other Festivals of Death and Life , The University of Tennessee Press, Knoxville, TN 1994 p. xvi)

In 835, Pope Gregory IV “blessed” All Saint’s Day as a sacred “day of obligation,” consequently on that day, the Catholic Church officially “ordained” Halloween. Halloween owes its very life and breath to the “blessing” of the Catholic Church. Samhain would have breathed its last breath many years ago if not for the “ordination” of the Catholic Church.

Few holidays have a stranger or more paradoxical history than Halloween. Technically, it is the vigil of All Saints Day, observed by Roman Catholics . .. Halloween has clear connections with the rites of the druidic priests… (Douglas, George William, revised by Helene Douglas Compton, The American Book of Days , The H.W. Wilson Company, New York, 1948, p. 741)

A perverse and blasphemous twist to Halloween concerns the name “Halloween.” The word “hallow” means “holy, sanctify or consecrate.” The popular Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9 begins with, “…Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name …” The label “hallow” belongs to God the Father – Hallowed be thy name . Halloween was a night sacrificing young children to the worship of Baal. It is no accident that the name of history’s most hellish night, glorifying “death and hell,” wears God the Father’s holy name of “hallow.” The blasphemous name of “Halloween” clearly bears the fingerprints of Lucifer as found in Isaiah 14:12, “…I will be like the most High.”


While Halloween masquerades as childish fun and frolic, it’s serious business in the occult world. Witchcraft, Wicca, Satanism and paganism believe, on the night of Halloween, devils and spirits are unleashed. They perform their most hideous and potent rituals on the night of Halloween.

Samhain: This is the “Witch’s New Year” and the primary Sabbat from which all others flow . (RavenWolf, Silver. Teen Witch , p. 42)

Halloween is one of the four major Sabbats celebrated by the modern Witch, and it is by far the most popular and important of the eight that are observed…Witches regard Halloween as their New Year’s Eve, celebrating it with sacred rituals… (Dunwich, Gerina. The Pagan Book of Halloween, p. 120)

Halloween is also among Satanism’s most cherished days. Anton LaVey, founder of The Church of Satan and author of The Satanic Bible writes:

After one’s own birthday, the two major Satanic holidays are Walpurgisnacht (May 1st) and Halloween. (LaVey, Anton Szandor. The Satanic Bible , p. 96)

Satanic High Priestess Blanche Barton, on The Church of Satan web site, praises Halloween:

It [Halloween] gives even the most mundane people the opportunity to taste wickedness for one night. They have a chance to dance with the Devil…I see Satanists all over the world meeting in small groups this night and Hallowe’ens 500 years hence, to raise a glass to the Infernal Hosts…

The Satanic Calendar decrees for Halloween: “One of the two most important nights of the year…Blood and sexual rituals. Sexual association with demons . Animal and human sacrifice – male or female .”

Former occultist Johanna Michaelsen reveals, ” Halloween is also a prime recruiting season for Satanists.” (Michaelsen, Johanna. Like Lambs to the Slaughter , p. 192)


The ornaments decorating Halloween came directly from the Druids and the occult.

The popular associations of Halloween are derived from ancient Celtic and Druid pagan religious customs. (Mather, George A. and Larry A. Nichols. Dictionary of Cults, Sects, Religions and the Occult , p. 237)

Samhain was a vital part of Celtic culture, its rituals were passed from generation to generation through the oral tradition of the Druids. The genesis of many of America ‘s Halloween traditions can be found in these ancient celebrations … (Bannatyne, Lesley Pratt , Halloween: An American Holiday, an American History , Facts on File, Inc., New York, 1990 p. 6)

WITCHES are the reigning Queen of Halloween. If you’ve been lullabied by the gospel of Halloween that witches are harmless folks, wake up, witches worship the devil:

In many instances, according to the confessions of the witches, besides their direct worship of the devil, they were obliged to show their abhorrence of the faith they had deserted by trampling on the cross, and blaspheming the saints, and by other profanations. (Spence, Lewis. An Encyclopedia of Occultism , p. 433)

The witches held a party at Hallowe’en and the women… sold their soul to the devil, would put a stick in their beds anointed with the fat of murdered babies … (Douglas, George William. The American Book of Days , p. 569)

Although witches vigorously protest they have no dealings with the devil, under the heading, “A Witch’s God,” the popular witch’s training manual, Witchcraft: Theory and Practice , plainly states:

A Witch’s God…He is… Lord of the Underworld [Hell] … He is named… Baphomet…Lucifer…Baal. (Angeles, Ly de. Witchcraft: Theory and Practice , p. 60)

The Lord God’s judgment upon witches should not be taken lightly.

Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live . Exodus 22:18

JACK-O’-LANTERN: If Witches are the Queen of Halloween, the smiling jack-o’-lantern is the King. The demonic jack-o’-lantern leaves most historians baffled tracing its spooky origin. One popular tale, tells of Jack who tricked the devil in a deal for his soul. But the origin of the jack-o’-lantern is much more sinister. It arrives from the Druid’s ghastly reverence of the severed human head! They proudly decorated their houses and temples with bloody severed heads. The Druids believed the head housed the soul, hence the light or candle in the skull. The original jack-o’-lantern was not a pumpkin or turnip, but a severed human head!

Trophy, charm, or ornament, the human head figured prominently in Celtic life. Warriors hung enemy heads on their houses as a show of prowess, and Druids, believing that the head harbored the soul, placed skulls in sanctuaries to ward off evil. National Geographic , May 1977, p. 603)

… they hang the heads of their enemies from the necks of their horses , and, when they have brought them home, nail the spectacle to the entrances of their homes : (Strabo, Geography )

It is believed that faces, rather than other images or symbols, were originally carved onto the pumpkin because they gave the jack-o’-lantern the look of a head The Celts of ancient times believed that the head was the most sacred part of the human body, for it housed a person’s immortal soul . (Dunwich, Gerina. The Pagan Book of Halloween, p. 32)

…the jack-o’-lantern is generally presented in its traditional form as a festive euphemism for the death’s-head, the triangular nose hole and rictus grin being the “dead” giveaways. (Skal, David J. Death Makes a Holiday: The Cultural History of Halloween, p. 38)

Carved and illuminated by a candle, they are symbolic of death and the spirit world . (Thompson, Sue Ellen. Holiday Symbols and Customs, p. 256)


Every year on Halloween, many children throughout the world dress up in costumes and go door to door in a ritual known as trick or treating… unaware that their innocent masquerade is actually the remnants of a Druidic religious practice from times most ancient. (Dunwich, Gerina. The Pagan Book of Halloween, p. 11)

Whatever the wrinkles, the root assumption is the same: trick or treat had its beginning in the Celtic dawn. (Santino, Jack. Halloween and Other Festivals of Death and Life , p. 82)

MASKS & COSTUMES: Masks and costumes carry a long history in the occult and demon possession. Masks are contacts to the spirit world to invite the spirit to “possess” them.

In rituals, a person wearing a mask of a god or spirit often feels possessed by the supernatural being … (World Book 2005, p. 263)

The person wearing the mask feels internally transformed and takes on temporarily the qualities of the god or demon represented by the mask . (Biedermann, Hans. Dictionary of Symbolism , p. 218)

BAT: “One of the animal shapes commonly used by these demons (or “familiars,” as they were often called) was the bat . Bats and their blood were also used in the casting of spells (especially those of black magick), the brewing of potions…” (Dunwich, Gerina. The Pagan Book of Halloween, p. 29)

OWL: “On Halloween night, demons in the form of owls were said to have traveled with Witches and their cats … some were even believed to be Witches in disguise . . . (Interestingly, the owl was called a strix by the Romans-a word that means “Witch.”)” (Dunwich, Gerina. The Pagan Book of Halloween, p. 43)

“BLACK CATS were associated with darkness and death… they embodied demons who performed the witches’ task of maleficia against their neighbors… Black cats are said to be the devil himself .” (Guiley, Rosemary Ellen. The Encyclopedia of Witches and Witchcraft , p. 49)

APPLES: ” The practice of bobbing for apples at a Halloween party comes form our Pagan ancestors, who highly valued apple magick.” (RavenWolf, Silver. Teen Witch , p. 42)

SKULL: “An interesting symbol, the skull… It is prominent in Witchcraft and Demon worship as a celebration of death .” (Burns, Cathy. Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, p. 388)


Halloween has always wallowed in the obscene. Its horrid history is paved with vandalism, destruction and wickedness. The sickening depravity of razor blades in apples and poisoned candies of the 1970’s was a clear testimony to the evil of Halloween.

Some say that Halloween brings out the evil side of human nature in certain individuals . The number of vandalism acts committed each year on Halloween certainly seems to support this… (Dunwich, Gerina. The Pagan Book of Halloween, p. 23)

Halloween has always been a night of perversion and inversion-a night where misrule rules and decadence masquerades as decency. Halloween’s “best kept secret” is its romantic love affair with homosexuals. Halloween was the golden key that unlocked the homosexual’s closet of perversion. Halloween’s spirit of inversion, bestowed the homosexuals one utopian night to publicly flaunt their decadence and perversion.

It is an opportunity to act out one’s desires or fantasies… Halloween is unquestionably a night of inversion . (Rogers, Nicholas. Halloween: From Pagan Ritual to Party Night , p. 137)

Halloween has always been a night of misrule and the outrageous. In recent years, it has been adopted by the gay community in America … (Morgan, Sheena. The Real Halloween , p. 42)

The Halloween machine turns the world upside down. One’s identity can be discarded with impunity. Men dress as women, and vice versa. Authority can be mocked and circumvented . (Skal, David J. Death Makes a Holiday: The Cultural History of Halloween p. 17)

Halloween has done more for the current acceptance of homosexuality than any other event. Years of huge homosexual Halloween street parades of gaudy perversion and decadence in New York ‘s Greenwich Village , Washington , D.C,’s Georgetown , New Orleans ‘s French Quarter and the infamous Castro Street in San Francisco almost single handily detonated the current homosexual explosion.

Greenwich Village has a long, albeit erratic, history of impromptu Halloween celebrations, and there is undoubtedly a link between the recent emergence of such carnivalesque celebrations and the increasingly public nature of gay culture . .. (Santino, Jack. Halloween and Other Festivals of Death and Life , p. 194)

Yet it has been the gay community that has most flamboyantly exploited Halloween’s potential as a transgressive festival… Indeed, it is the gay community that has been arguably more responsible for Halloween’s adult rejuvenation. (Rogers, Nicholas. Halloween: From Pagan Ritual to Party Night , p. 132)

For gay people, Halloween is a moment of utopian wishfulness… 11


While many deem Halloween as harmless fun and fantasy, Halloween subtlety disarms our (and especially our children) discernment of witches and the occult. Halloween’s magic potion of “fun and frolic” transformed witches, demons, devils and evil incarnate into “fine folks.” Over 1.2 million practicing and proud witches live in America. Witchcraft currently is the fastest growing religion in America. At some time, nearly every little girl becomes a witch on Halloween. Witch RavenWolf delights when a vulnerable little girl dresses as a witch on Halloween:

Today, just about every little girl in our society, at one time or another, has chosen to costume herself as a Witch … If you choose a Witch’s costume this Halloween… Hold your head up and wear your Witch’s garb proudly in their honor. (RavenWolf, Silver. Halloween: Customs, Recipes & Spells , p. 64)

Occult historian Jean Markale discloses Halloween bids more than childish dress-up. It is a pagan “initiatory journey” guided by someone [Satan] “hidden in the shadows,” and none “return from Halloween innocent”:

The passage into the world of Halloween is truly an initiatory journey. One does not return from it an innocent. But making the journey alone does not mean there was no guide, no initiator, someone who prompted the quest and who, sometimes hidden in the shadows, watches over the comings and goings of the neophyte through this labyrinth that is the Other World . (Markale, Jean. The Pagan Mysteries of Halloween, p. 127)

Dr. David Enoch, former senior consultant psychiatrist at the Royal Liverpool Hospital and the University of Liverpool, states:

Halloween practices open the door to the occult and can introduce forces into people’s lives that they do not understand and often cannot combat … (Parker, Russ. Battling the Occult , p. 35)

If you are one who has trouble accepting the truth of human sacrifice at “Samhain”, than read this: 

Celtic sacrifices confirmed at famed ancient site

  • Analysis confirms ritual murder helps explain bone clusters at the ruins of Gordion in Turkey
  • The skull and skeleton displays seem in keeping with ancient Celtic practices
  • The Celts invented a holiday that preceded today’s Halloween skeleton displays

Halloween brings trick-or-treaters, candy and rather macabre displays of skeletons and graves suddenly dotting suburban lawns.

All in fun, but for the ancient Celts who cooked up the autumn festival of Samhain, a predecessor to today’s Halloween, a new study confirms such displays were serious business.

The ancient Celts were most definitely head-hunters,” prone to displaying these trophies, says anthropologist Mary Voigt, who has long headed the Penn Museum’s excavations at the storied site of Gordion in modern-day Turkey. “And they were definitely Celts at Gordion.”

What were those Celts (pronounced with a hard “K” sound) doing in Turkey? Well, in a forthcoming study in the Journal of Osteoarchaeology by archaeologist Page Selinsky of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, it seems they were definitely continuing some startling ritual murder practices. They decorated sacrifice sites with ghoulish entanglements of human bones, perhaps as a warning to foes and the folks they ruled.

A view of the excavations at Gordion

Gordion is the place where Alexander the Great famously severed the intractable “Gordian Knot,” a knot so complex that legend has it that whoever undid the knot would rule all of Asia, on his conquests around 334 B.C. The death of Alexander also brought Celts, originally mercenaries and later conquerors, to Gordion, a citadel mound in central Turkey that was once ruled by the King Midas of the golden touch myth.

“Understanding what they intended is the million-dollar question in Celtic ritual practices,” Selinsky says. “These are big questions of life and death and what they believed. We may be seeing several different types of rituals.”

In one case, a middle-aged woman’s skeleton, her skull dented by three hammer blows, lay atop a younger woman’s skeleton pinned under two large grinding stones. The bones of two children lay placed among them. In another, a teenager’s clearly-decapitated head was arranged amid dog bones. Perhaps most bizarre, three skeletons mingled in doubled-over positions include the skull of a woman who appears to have been decapitated. Several men appear to have been decapitated among the bone clusters, their heads displayed singly in the manner of war trophies.

The Celts were big fans of skulls, Voigt notes in a chapter of the bookSacred Killing: The Archaeology of Sacrifice in the Ancient Near East, edited by Anne Porter and Glenn Schwartz. The Romans noted they collected heads of enemies to hang from their horses, and they sacrificed criminals and captured enemies, using their death throes to foretell the future.The heads of those enemies that were held in high esteem they would embalm in cedar oil and display them to their guests, and they would not think of having them ransomed even for an equal weight of gold,” wrote the ancient Greek historian, Strabo.

Voigt suggests that the bodies displayed by the Galatians, which would have been clearly visible to anyone living in the town below their citadel, were meant as a warning either to foes or the subject population of the town. Perhaps some were victims of ritual murder in attempts to tell the future when the Romans invaded their realm. While Selinsky is more cautious about attaching meaning to the bone displays than Voigt, her study does confirm violent death as the end for many of the skeletons, a suggestion that first made news a decade ago. “Here we see further investigation confirming a hypothesis, which is a good thing in science,” Selinsky says.

As for the Halloween connection, some researchers see links, “but all we can say really is that there was a Celtic festival called Samhain in the fall when animals were slaughtered for the winter, that in some ways preceded the holiday,” Voigt says. Any certainty about the deeper connection to today’s trick-or-treating skeletons is as uncertain as the meaning of the curious bones left on a hillside below the ruins of Gordion.
