Halloween is here and for those who believe 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 him. 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; Psalm 119:105). The scriptures are God’s speech to man, and He teaches that the dead doesn’t spook the living (2 Timothy 3:14-17; Ecclesiastes 9:4-6:10; Job 7:1-10, 10:18-22; Psalm 103:13-16; 2 Samuel 12:22-23).
At death the spirit of man is removed from the earth and taken to Hades (the abode of the dead) to await judgment (James 2:26; Hebrews 9:27; Psalm 90:10; Luke 24:5, 22:42-43; Acts 2:29-32; Luke 16:19-31). Ignorance of what the Bible teaches has lead many to believe unscriptural things, and a highly creative imagination has cause 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; Psalm 34:10; 1 Peter 2:2-6).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
