Gett'n Educated About the Origins of Halloween......

Updated: Jan 16

So it has been awhile since I have posted. We celebrated Sukkot and had a great time! Now I have some time freed up to go back to blogging a bit.

The title of what I am going to introduce today is something most of you may have heard snippets of and maybe even more than a snippet. As you know we are well into the month of October. I want to address something that is really important to me and I believe to Yah (God) as well.

I drove past many churches this last week with Harvest Festivals and Fall Festivals, Harvest Moon festivals and various and other announcement on their marques. My heart was slightly grieved as I saw this and the scripture in Hosea 4:6 came to mind. " For My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.... this is where we usually stop reading or stop quoting this scripture but I want to continue on with the full scripture: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. I reject you as a priest to me since you have forgotten the laws of Your Elohim ( God) I will ignore your children.

That is a pretty heavy charge right there! The first commandment is I am Yahweh your Elohim and you shall have no other gods before me.

The number one instruction/law or commandment. Why then do we do honor other gods ( small g) instead of honoring His Holy Days as given through scripture. I only bring this up because we are all learning. We are all pursuing Yah on different levels and are in different levels of understanding and some are new to this Hebraic walk and really don't know. But if if I do not address this with the body of Messiah I would not be doing my part to take down those "high Places the occult so love to build"

I am going to talk about Halloween it's origins and History. Even though we in the US celebrate Halloween on October 31st. The actual holiday is called Samhaim. Pronounced "Sow inn", whose foundation is laid in Druid worship, is actually a three day event. The 31st being the last day of celebration. They worship the Lord of the Dead. Who is called by many names but I believe you would better recognize him as Nimrod, the King of the land was a giant Hunter, Nimrod. He is often referred to as a "stag god" and you will see pictures depicting this as well. Different names but actually the same entity such as Baal. You can google him if you want to explore more about the history of Nimrod but for now let's continue on.

The Celts were an ancient nomadic people who came into Scotland, Ireland and the British Isles in 900BC. They held the sway of authority and power in the those regions until after 900AD.

Celtic people were warlike nomadic people and they had a priestly class known as the Druids. In Gaelic they would have been known as the men of the Oaks. Note: Oak trees are still the most sacred tree in the illuminati world. They have an owl statue at the Bohemian Grove carved out of Oak that is 40' tall.

The Druids were the priestly order of the Celtic people. they were exempt from going to war. The Origins of the Druids actually begins back in the time of Nephillim. The Nephillim is the foundation of Druid Worship. King David drove out the Caannites and drove this sect towards what we now know as Great Britain, Scotland and Ireland.

We have adopted many of the pagan religions from around the world. Which is why God told us in Deuteronomy 18:9-14 "When you come into the land that I am giving you, you shall not learn to follow the abominable practices of those nations. There shall not be found among you anyone who burns their son or his daughter as an offering anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens or a sorcerer or a charmer or medium or necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things are abominations to Yah (God) and because of these abominations Yah your Elohim is driving them out before you and you shall be blameless before Yah your Elohim ( the Lord your God). He drove them out for us but we as a people welcomed them back in.

You can look at these other scriptures as well Revelation 21:8, Leviticus 20:6 Leviticus 19:31, Isaiah 8:19, Romans 1:18-32, Revelation 22:18, James 4:12, Hebrews 10:26-31, John 4:24, 2 Chronicles 33:6, 1 Samuel 15:23, 2 Peter 2:15, Acts 19:18-20. Exodus 22:18, Jeremiah 32:35, Leviticus 4:16-21, 1 John 4:16-21, Jeremiah 7: 18, John 4:23-24, Daniel 2:27, Jeremiah 10-2-5, 2 Kings 17:17, Acts 19;19, Micah 5:12, Amos 2:7, Acts 8:9-13, Matthew 15:9, Ezekiel 8:14, 2nd Kings 21:6, and the list goes on.

I give you these examples only to show you this is a serious thing and Yah/God talks about it a lot! Old testament, in the Prophets, in the New Testament. It is a constant theme of warning all though scripture. I think He is trying to show us something here!

I am only writing about this because I really believe many people do not know what they are doing. We are calling evil good and good evil. So many scriptures about that as well. Referring to these last days. Isaiah 5:20 " Woe to those who call evil good and good evil. who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and and sweet for bitter. We have inherited the lies of our fathers. ( Jeremiah 16:19) O Yah/God my strength and fortress, my refuge in the day of distress, the nations will come to You from the ends of earth and say "Our fathers have inherited nothing but lies, worthless things in which there is no profit or benefit.

I do not believe that most people are aware of lies we have inherited so that is why I am doing this post.

So lets go back to the Druids, The Druids once again were the religious sect of Celtic priests and they held the authority of the tribes as priests. Part of their priestly duties was to read the entrals of animals that were suppose to tell them if it was a good time to go to war or a bad time. They also had the authority to tell people when they could get married and to whom they could marry. They dictated whether or not a person was allowed to hold a position of an officer or some sort of authoritarian position in the tribe. They dictated who was allowed to go into the temple and who was not. Their practices were so barbaric that the Roman Empire was even fearful of them. More on that later....

One of their most ancient temples that still exists today and you will recognize the name. Is Stone Henge. Stone Henge is a megaliptic stone circle. There are many Stone Henges that are actually all over the world. We will talk about one of them in the state of Washington in just a few paragraphs. This is where the Druids would worship their "Stag" god whom we would be more familiar with the name of "Nimrod" . They would celebrate and worship him 8xs a year. Note: Sounds like a counterfeit to Yah's /God's Biblical feasts which are still valid today.

Stone Henge is difficult to date. The archeologists believe it goes back to 3,000 BC and was built in three consecutive buildings. It was built out of a blue granite material which can only be found 70 miles away in Scotland. How did they transport something that weighed that much that distance over rivers and grounds to where it it exists today is a mystery.

There is folklore that Merlin the most powerful wizard in History actually summoned those stones. But it is just that folklore. Stone Henge is where they would make human sacrifices and archeologists have already unearthed over 4,000 skeletal remains under the Stone Henge.

There were hundreds of Stone Henges in the region and the biggest one that still exists today is Wilshire England 2 miles west of Amesbury and is perhaps a mile in circumference.

On the nights of Samhaim, pronounced "Sow inn" The Celtic priests the Druids would gather at Stone Henge. They would have taken gourds and turnips but here in American we use pumpkins. They would hollow them out and fill them with human fat from the human sacrifices as an offering to their various pagan gods.

The would then take these items and set them aside and take out these huge caldrons and put them over a fire pit and light them. These caldrons would be filled with an apple cider like substance or a mead. They would then take this gourds, pumpkins and turnips and take them out to the county of various homes of nobility such as Duke Marquis, castles and manors and literally walk up to the their doors and bang on the doors and scream out trick or treat.

For those inside the home this literally would have sent absolute terror throughout their bodies because if the Lord of the manor cooperated with the Druid priests and gave them a treat they would take one of their servants and if they had none a family member from the household would be given to them so they could be used as a human sacrifice offering that night. Now as a reward for the treat they would leave one of the pumpkins or gourds or turnips that had been previously filled with fat from the human sacrifices and on the front door and light it.

This was suppose to protect everyone inside the house or manor or castle from all the demonic forces they would be summoning up on the night of Samhaim -Halloween.

Now here's the trick part. If you did not cooperate with the Druid priests and would not give someone over to be a human sacrifice offering they would paint a 6 pointed star in blood with a circle around it on the door. Even until this day it remains one of the most evil symbols in the occult world. Why? Because you must have this symbol to literally call up a demon into this plane of existence. We know it as a hexagram. Usually that night some would be driven to death from the fear of everything that would be summoned up. They would be attacked by the demons and these visions would drive them to their own death through fear.

Now after many hours of wandering around the countrysides the Druids would come back to places like Stonehenge and this is where they would have their version of fun. They would take those who were given to be human sacrifices and line them in a straight-line. Remember the cauldrons we talked about earlier, the Druid priests would then take apples and throw them into these caldrons. The liquid that had been cooking for hours would have been around 212 degrees. Hot enough to literally melt the flesh right off of you.

They would tell people standing in line to be sacrificed that if they could get one the apples on the first try between your teeth then we will let you go. People would agree in hopes they would live And this was chance for them to live no matter how maimed they would have been. Many people said no but many of the poor victims said yes. It was the only way they could escape death. If they were able to pull the apple out of calderon on first try with an apple between their teeth the Druid priests would cut them loose immediately and let them go.

The damage would have been intense. 3rd degree burns, the scarring that would happen, the hearing damage they would have due to boiling water going into their ears, blindness or partial blindness the respiratory issues from scarring in their noses and mouths would have been horrendous. If you were unable to get the apple out at first try they would behead you right there on the spot. Archeologists have found many remains under Stone hedge that have been beheaded.

Before the Druids had set out on their nightly ventures on these three days they would have been proactive a week or two earlier begun to gather reeds. 1,000's of them. Wicker is a very durable substance and is easy to work with. Note: I am reminded of the scripture in Matthew 12:20 a bruised reed He will not break and a smoldering wick He will not snuff out. Matthew was quoting a prophecy from Isaiah 42:1-4 This prophecy is pointing to the actions and demeanor of the coming Messiah. The bruised reed and smoldering wick refers to the spiritually, physically and morally weak. A reed that is bruised may be damaged but is not irreparable and smoldering wick may be about to lose its fire altogether but it can still be reignited. Such the opposite of would have happened to those human sacrifices.

After the reeds had been brought in they would have build an effigy of a huge human which was known as the "wicker man". Inside this huge effigy would have been cages and places to put animal sacrifices, and food sacrifices as well as cages for the human sacrifices. If there was not enough room in the wicker man than other cages would have built around it.

They would set the "wicker man" on fire and as time went on it would have engulfed the whole "wicker man" and burned everything. People, animals everything.

What is troublesome today is that in the desert in the the year of 2,000 a "burning Man was built and all the witches, sorcerers, wizards, Wiccan, and many pagan religions are coming together year after year and setting up this old occult practice. One being the "wicker man" It is called today the "burning man" It is a wooden effigy made of wood and sticks. There is an annual "Burning Man" convention that many new agers attend yearly and some of these people who attend claim to be Believers in Messiah. I have heard of several who have created frequency cd's for healing and the CD is called "Burning Man". These are believers who go and participate in these functions.

So far there has been no human sacrifice offered up that we know of but it is a cause of concern. You can read about the article in the New York Times on Sept 17, in the year of 2,000. Same practice as the Druid worship just a different rendition. Where these people gather the ancient animal totems are being brought back. Such as the Golden Calf which was Nimrod worship also that we read about in scripture that the people "caused" Aaron to build a golden calf at the foot of Mt Sinai.

It is the belief that the nights of Samhaim is when the spiritual world and the physical world have the thinnest veil between both worlds. During these days and nights the souls of the departed can come and visit their loved ones. This is only done after the big bon fires or the fires of Baal are ignited.

Once the Baal fires are lit they are a beacon to the souls in the spiritual realm so they can focus on it and it will allow them to enter into our world. But no one knows if these spirits are crossing over are benevolent ( friendly) or evil.

So since it was not guaranteed to know what may be summoned up the Druids came up with devises that they would put on their heads. Masks if you will that would be covered with horrifying demon looking like creatures with painted symbols on these masks which were suppose to keep the bad spirits in check. This is the origin of where the Halloween masks or Samhain costumes came into play.

Halloween is nothing but the recreation of Samhaim worship. The Celtic lord of the dead on his high and holy days. When we take a look at what Halloween is for kids and even grownups. They dress up demand a sacrifice or a trick they get candy and go home. They bob for apples, they may not be a calderon of hot boiling liquid but it is an re enactment of Druid worship pagan practices. Well, it's harmless some say. Right here in the USA in Washington, is a Maryhill is a replica of Stonehenge. Commissioned by Sam Hill dedicated on the 4th of July in 1918 as a memorial to the people who died in World War 1. A monument to honor the dead. Placed to alight with the sunrise on the summer solst
