 Beloved in the Lord, friends, and family.

To those all over the world, that will read this letter..  To all those on our ministry mail out list.
We love you all 

   This is NOT just a message concerning Halloween:    Please do not stop reading !    It is a message  to warn us and edify us and make us sober in spirit, to be sober about the evil that crouches at the door !

I pray all is well with you and your family. I pray the Lord is pouring out His wisdom and grace upon you who know Him, and leading you in wisdom and truth. I pray for those who have not yet made Jesus Christ their absolute Lord and master that He will woo you with his love, and you will heed the call of the Holy Spirit to come to him in full repentance.
Halloween, It is a very dangerous time for everyone who participates, and especially the children.  I have a message here (below), I pray you will take the time to read, and look in your Bibles along with it, and see for yourself what the Lord has to say.  Please do not fall into the trap of..." Oh well, I just do not see it that way, there is no harm in it.."  This is a very dangerous way to treat something until you learn the real truth about a thing, and what GOD has to say, not what we think or what the world does, or what the worldly folks in the Church do either. It is a real and present danger, and is absolutely an evil practice that can effect you and your children for the rest of their lives....  Satan comes to Steal, Kill and destroy, the bible tells us, so we need to give ear to God's word on things, and not our own idea's or how we were raised, or what those with no discernment in the Church tell us either.  But rather the word of God.
Just to help you, and let you know that my Wife and I "do not" celebrate, nor participate in, or decorate for, or have anything to do with Halloween.
  Our kids know this, and we want the rest of our friends to know as well, (and they should already know).  We are not this way because we are mean, or "religious." We are this way because we want to honor and obey God with all our hearts.  This is a most vile and wicked day, as those in the occult both privately, and those that gather from all over the world set this day apart from the rest, to offer up even greater sacrifices to Satan. Some are animal, some are still human, but the point remains, they are in their most intent prayer against Christians and their families, and against those who would even consider coming to Christ and truly being born again.
This action takes place every day, year around, but on this day, it is a all out attack and celebration, and a very real, and serious and present danger. I have seen children and adults alike, that have been effect by even seemingly innocent things, as Satan seeks to place a spirit on them that can change them for life until Jesus delivers them.  All in the name of something innocent and fun for the kids, (or adults).
When some one you know has a party, and you decorate a place up for them, you do it to "celebrate an occasion do you not"
The same goes for this centuries old religion/tradition called Halloween. The Devils day. Why decorate for it, why invite him to your home, your children, your very lives ?
Folks this is real. I appeal to you as a relative, a friend, and what God has called me to be. A minister of the Word of God. One who tells the truth no matter what, or how hard it may seem, or how popular it is, and with no thought to my own acceptance or rejection.  A hard walk yes, at times it is. But it is the call of God.  The apostle Paul said..."If I feared men, I would not be a true servant of Christ ...." !    A true Christian, or minister of the Word of God, cannot speak to please the flesh of men, but rather must shout from the roof tops what he hears in his closet of prayer.  He must speak what the Word of God says cover to cover, and with NO thought to what men may think of him.
The same you would do if you saw a loved one, or anyone, fixing to step into the street in the path of a speeding truck. You would shout "watch out, don't".... Or if you saw someone in a house that was on fire, would you not try to help them out, or at lest bang on the doors and windows, yelling "your house is on fire !"
I am banging on the doors of the heart in this letter, and giving clear absolute biblical warning from the Lord Jesus Christ, that to participate in any remote way in this ungodly day of the Devil himself is to harm your house hold and those you love.
It will now, or latter, but it will bring harm. That is a promise from the Word of God.  I have counseled people for years that have in "innocence" given a foothold to the devil in this, or other ways as well, and then wonder down the line why there is a progression to things in their lives that are a shambles. You say.. "I am not a shambles, I am not shipwrecked' !   Let me ask you. Are you daily worshiping God, and spending real quality time in His Word and prayer and praise, and walking with him with ALL your heart, and hungry for more and more of Christ?  If not, something is seriously wrong, because this is the way Christ intends for His children to live and talk and walk and act.... Even if you are, there can still be a connection some where, as why things in your life are not right, and you are in a battle with them. This can come from any sin, from any point in life.  But why open the door wider, through a practice such as outlined here......?
This is in love, much love. If not, I would not care. God cares, so I care.
There are plenty of scripture below, that will make sense to the believer and the non-believer alike. Please read it, and heed it.
God bless you all.
This literally goes out all over the world to Family, friends, and those that do not know the Lord in many different countries.
This is one of the reasons our ministry is here. www.bibleword.com    I pray you will read it often (the web site), and know we love you dearly. If not, we would not tell you the truth.

Halloween has everything to do with fear and death -- ghosts, witches, skulls, tombstones, graveyards -- and nothing to do with life. Jesus said, "I come to give you life..."

Fear is not of God.  2 Timothy 1:7 "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." 1 John 4:18 "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear; because fear hath torment...."

Jesus Christ came to free us of all our fears.  Luke 1:74; Hebrews 2:14-15

Jesus overcame death.  Isaiah 28:18; Luke 7:14-15; John 10:17-18; Acts 2:24, 27; 1 Corin. 15:54-55; Heb 2:14; Revel 1:18; 28:18

Halloween has its roots in witchcraft and everything related to Satan. Therefore, Christians should shun any involvement in it. We are called to be "holy" ("separate" from the world and from evil), and have no part in such things.


Even those who are not following God, should shun this wicked holiday from hell, because of the demonic influence even seemingly innocent appearing things WILL HAVE ON especially the children .


"Where is the discernment?

BYGary R. Kane"

I pray you will take the time to read the following note concerning Halloween.  Really, not just Halloween, but the real message is, "The lack of discernment in the body of Christ."  It may be thought strange to some, to send this to those who love the Lord, but not really.  There are so very many well meaning Christians who just do 'not have a clue' that they should not participate in such a Satanic, evil ritual as this. I know it all looks cute and innocent. This is what Satan wants you to think.  He also loves it when Churches have "alternative night."   This is the same thing as so called "alternative music," (Christian rock, so called).  I understand the word 'alternative,' but it is not used in it's proper form in many churches today.  It is used like a sugar substitute.

Once a person comes to Christ, the Bible says they are a "new creation, old things have passed away, and ALL things become new.."   We are no longer in love with what we used to love that was ungodly.  Rock music, country and western music, rap music, and a host of other habits, entertainments, and the like, that are not pleasing to God, and do not represent the holy character of our Lord Jesus Christ.  But the devil, in his craftiness, has brought in the word "alternative," and as he does everything else he touches, he has twisted the meaning of it.  The way it is used, (not admittedly, but in spiritual ignorance), is "hey my flesh always loved hard rock music, since I am a Christian, I am not and should listen to such things, so I will listen to "Christian rock," .........."Because it too, still satisfies my flesh with the same kind of beat and rhythm, so it's kind of like I still get to keep part of what I used to love so much. Oh how the flesh and the devil will help you find ways to keep something you should not have, all in the name of Jesus!

The same for Halloween.  Churches having Halloween parties, and activities for the kids, all in the name of Jesus!  "Well we are just dressing up as angels and Moses, and bible characters, and giving the children a 'heavenly way to participate in the devils holiday" !     NO....     It is still a participation!    Why not stay home, and teach your children how evil and cruel and sneaky Satan is, and this is a day that the world, those who do not know Jesus as Lord, go out (some in ignorance), and celebrate it.  You say "my child would not understand, or they are to small to understand."   Mom, Dad, then just say "NO, this is something my love, that Jesus does not approve of."  Then when they can understand, explain it !

I know that there are a few reading this letter, that think this is complete rubbish.  Friend it is not.  It is truth, plain and simple.  For the most part the Church has fallen asleep in the lap of the world the same as Samson did in the lap of Delilah, and the Devil has given these Christians a "spiritual haircut" and they have lost their power, and ability to discern what is light, and what is dark!  I see Churches in the Dallas area here, with banners hung across the entrance of the building..  "Kids Halloween party."   Baptist churches, and Pentecostal as well.  An Assembly of God here is having what they call "Truck or treat night."  Everyone, (as the church bulletin reads), should come and decorate your vehicles, and we will have fun, games, candy, etc..."   Beloved, This is very sad.  It is very dangerous.  It is a church and a people, and a Pastor, that have received a "spiritual haircut," and lost their power (with God), and their ability to discern light from dark.

The devil is a fantastic "counterfeiter."   He counterfeits some of the gifts of the Holy Spirit in some people and gatherings, and as the Word clearly teaches us, he counterfeits as an angel of light, and his servants as teachers or preachers of righteousness. (II Corinthians 13-15).

 So, you see, when the people of God, decide to have an "alternative Halloween night",  all they are doing is "counterfeiting the real thing" !   It is "still a participation" !  Now they have become the counterfeiters of the Devils activities, the way the devil counterfeits God's work through others.  This is not foolishness, it is "folly."  It is sin!

This lack of understanding in the body of Christ is, again, a manifestation of a "spiritual haircut," from spending so much time in the world's playground, and it's mind set. Thus, we do not really see the miracles and the visitations of the Holy Spirit in our gatherings the way we should be seeing them, or people coming to Christ, or the desire to get out and bring them to Christ, or a hunger, I mean a really deep hunger and thirst for Jesus, for righteousness, and holiness.  There is not much desire to hear a message to bring us to conviction, and contrition, and brokenness and true godly sorrow and repentance and life. 

No, instead some have become "content," to sit week after week in the dead dusty atmosphere of a lifeless, and in some cases, Christ-less church, where men have to try and "invent ways" to entertain, and keep you there, because they have not got the power of God in them, or in their words, or message. Then they dry up, people die,  they become indifferent, complacent, and comfortable.  Oh, they have their classes, and their bible study groups, and activities, but there is "no power" !  It has become a religious activity, and brings a blood boiling anger to the flesh of some, when they hear this truth, because they have been "desensitized" to the true working of the Holy Spirit, and the precious depths of God's heart.

This is all very elementary, and we should be so heart broken over this condition among such a majority of what is called church today.   Beloved, we need to pray like never before in this final hour for the body of Christ to have a fresh awakening by he Holy Spirit, a fresh fire to ignite and stir the life of Jesus Christ in His people, that we would be "imitators of God..."   That Ephesians 5:1 tells us to be.  To follow Christ, to imitate Him, to hear HIS voice, and NOT a strangers voice.  The voice of the world, is a 'strangers voice' to the true believer of Jesus Christ.  It can come from the media, the T.V. the paper a million other sources, and even from the pulpit and class room in your church, from those who have had a "spiritual haircut."  Those that have no connection with Christ in a way that brings forth the true anointing, and message of truth spoken in love, with a pure heart, "without fear and approval of men."

We are never to be afraid that God's word may "offend someone."  If the Word of God offends someone, they are not in love with it, or the author of it.  The flesh and the devil hate the truth, and so do those who have a "form of godliness, but have denied the power thereof..."   In other words, denied the power of the blood of Jesus Christ, to be used in the dealings of the Holy Spirit to their heart to bring conviction, and repentance, and freedom, and life, and salvation!

I pray that you will share this with someone you know. Perhaps your Pastor, elder deacon, a teacher, or just a brother or sister in Christ who needs to have a wake up call.   If they truly love the Lord and His word, they will thank you.  If not, they will estrange themselves from you.  This, beloved is just all a part of walking with Jesus. 

I have relatives that won't talk to me about spiritual matters, won't pray with me, or get in the word with me, or share spiritual experiences, and think I am mean and harsh, and critical and cynical and "out of it," because I see things they "cannot see," because they have laid their head in the lap of the "religious world," and become comfortable with the "easy gospel,"  (which is no gospel at all), and have actually become a slave to the "Jezebel spirit",  that leads God's people astray, (away from the truth of the Word).  This is heart breaking, and I am sure most of you on this mailing list have similar situation/s in your families as well, and stories you could tell.

I have sent this to you today, to stir you. If you have been uninformed of these things we have talked about here, then repent. If you already knew these things, and I believe the majority of our readers do, then perhaps, as I suggested, pass it along to a friend, or a leader in the church that the Lord would lead you to give it to, so they will have the opportunity to "have their hair grow back once again," and the true power of the Cleansing blood of Jesus Christ wash them through repentance, and they can experience the power of the Spirit of God in their lives, or ministry, without the gimmicks, the pretense, and the masquerading.  We need the Life of Christ, and the breath of the Holy Spirit in our lives, and He will come, and bring that stirring, If we will humble ourselves and pray, and seek Him with all our hearts.  Won't you cry out to Him today, and ask him to cleanse you, and bring His fresh fire into your life....He is on His way even now to those whose hearts are fully His!

God bless you all, in the mighty name of Jesus!

Roman 12: 2
1Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. 2Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
I John 4: 16-18
16And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. 
 God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. 17In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. 18There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
Deutmeronomy 18:9-12
9 When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. 10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in  the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. 13 You must be blameless before the LORD your God.


You say... 'I do not , and my children do not do these things..."
(then why celebrate those who do, and honor them by doing so)
1 Peter 5:8
 8Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
Ephhesians 6: 12-13
12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Joshua 24: 15
 15 But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."
