Halloween is here again and for those who believe that ghosts haunt the earth, their belief will become more intense. But such ought not be the case—it’s just another holiday where people dress in costumes and give candy. However, man needs guidance, something to show him direction and shine light on the issues which confront. So that is where the Bible helps, and people can better themselves by having faith in the word (Hebrews 11:6; Psalm 19:8-10; Mark 9:21-23; Ps. 119:105). The scriptures are God’s speech to man and He teaches that the dead don’t spook the living (2 Timothy 3:14-17; Ecclesiastes 9:4-6, 10; Job 7:1-10; Job 10:18-22; Ps. 103:13-16; 2 Samuel 12:22-23).
At death the spirit of man is removed from earth and taken to Hades to await judgment (James 2:26; Heb. 9:27; Ps. 90:10; Luke 24:5; Luke 22:42-43; Acts 2:29-32; Luke 16:19-31). Ignorance of what the Bible teaches has lead many to believe things contrary to the Word, and a highly creative imagination has caused many to think they hear and see things (Acts 17:22-27). But if one believes the word of the Lord, he will be secure (Proverbs 1:29-33; Ps. 34:10; 1 Peter 2:2-6).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
