Dr. Alveda King: Boo Hoo — The Treat is a Trick

With Halloween now officially here, it’s probably no coincidence that this demonic atmosphere is neatly tucked in between midterm elections and Thanksgiving. Be on the alert, nothing is as harmless as it seems. The treat is a trick.

In just a few hours, some will cling to tradition with the Halloween custom of hanging macabre decorations, partying with sinister attractions, and going from house to house begging for treats while ignoring the danger of candy laced with poison or razor blades hidden inside. Some may even plan to soften the deception by seeking safe harbor in private settings, including in church socials; God forbid. No matter how you dress it up, Halloween is demonic and occultist.

Although television tries to seduce us while making the occult attractive by inventing such characters as Samantha and Genie, there is nothing cute or harmless about witchcraft. As Michael Snyder explains in Charisma News, on Halloween “all over America, those who are deep into the dark arts will contact the dead, cast spells and conduct blood sacrifices.”

With so much evil going on in the world today, who needs Halloween? Just think of all the craziness going on without all of the play acting.

Not long ago, three high school seniors were arrested for planning a mass school shooting and bombing in a Texas high school. Meanwhile recently, two girls in a Florida middle school were apprehended in the midst of planning a macabre occultist murder/suicide pact. Are you scared yet? Boo hoo; there’s more.

All around us, families are reeling from terror and grief after a deadly shooting at the Tree of Life Congregation Synagogue killing 11 and wounding another six. Please pray for their loss.

Then there’s the crazed bomber who sent pipe bombs to several political leaders wreaking havoc all over America. Thankfully none of the pipe bombs exploded and nobody was hurt.

Other political leaders and public figures are being targeted for harassment. Even I was recently cursed out by another patron at a nail salon venue. These types of horrors are becoming routine; occurring in public venues due to a so called “resistance movement” with challenges to political and even spiritual ideology.

Friends, we are living in a scary world and in scary times. It could be easy for many to lose hope were it not by the promise that comes from Jesus Christ. We are challenged to fear not; even in scary times.

“I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33 KJV

Meanwhile, rather than celebrating a season with ghouls and monsters, why not focus on all of the good going on in the world around us?

Let’s exert energy and excitement while praying for the future of our country and our world.

Why not get ready to vote for life in the upcoming mid- term election?

Meanwhile, don’t celebrate evil. Overcome evil with good.

“Fear thou not.” — Isaiah 41:10 KJV
