As a Christian I am claiming this day to celebrate Luke 18:16. Jesus says here to “Suffer the children to come unto me” Then He blessed those children. Let us as Christians Claim this Holiday to Hallow The King! This holiday has always been my favorite. Every kid no matter where they lived or what their background was given treasures of candy on this day.

We can take this pagan Holiday and turn it into the day we celebrate “Suffering the children to come unto Jesus” By next year maybe we could have simple elementary school level tracts the children can read for themselves. Some people put tracts in now but we need special children focused tracts. When you give them candy this year pray for them and ask God to bestow blessings on them do this in your mind. Because God says prayer is between you and Him not to be boastful like the Pharisees who went about the temple praying and wanting attention.

So we take this pagan Holiday in The Name Of Jesus Christ!

Did you know December 25th was a pagan holiday? Yes, the Catholic Church would work hard all year to convert people to Christ. But then December 25th came and the pagans had huge parties celebrating their gods. Many times the Catholic Church lost converts on this day because they wanted to celebrate that day too. So the Catholic Church in its infinite wisdom Decided to have a celebration for Jesus that day to overshadow their merry making. They determined since there was no proof of what day Jesus had been born on they would choose December 25th and make it a Holiday all about the Birth of Christ. Then slowly but surely more people celebrated Jesus’s birth on December 25th. It was called Christmas. And because they wanted the converts to celebrate the birth of Christ and would go around saying Merry Christmas to all the parties now honoring the birth of our Lord and Savior. Have you ever heard about that pagan holiday? What false gods did they follow and worship Who Knows. (Some Professor somewhere) but the world celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ and the pagans are a sideline in some small piece of history.

So let us claim this pagan holiday for the Lord Jesus Christ to celebrate the day He blessed the children and babies in Luke 18:16, Hallow The King!

You would only have to convince people to display their Spiritual side in their costume tastes. Let the pagans have their Halloween. Pray over every child that comes to your door. Bless them in silent prayer.  Jesus said Prayer is a special between you and God not to go around praying like the Pharisees did so everyone could hear them and make themselves look good! But to go to God quietly in Prayer. Hallow The King!
