JOY TO THE WORLD THE LORD HAS COME, LET EARTH RECEIVE HER KING!

          In two and one half months this country will again remember with warmth and joy the arrival of Jesus (The Lord our Savior).  The seasonal sections of our department stores are already full of stuff, catching our eyes and our pocket books with a fervor.  The choices are large with demons on one side of the aisle and angels on the other.  It seems there is a battle going on.  How do we spend our money?  Clearly a choice must be made, or should we split the difference and buy some of each?  

          We as Christians may want to ask ourselves, what does the Lord see us doing this month?  Going to shops full of stuff, catching our eyes and our pocket books with a fervor as we scramble to join in celebrating Halloween?  October 31 is celebrated in the United States, Canada, and the British Isles by children going door to door while wearing costumes and begging treats and playing pranks. (American Heritage Dictionary)         

Is there a time on earth where the people of God mingle with the things of darkness?  Is there a time to recognize a ghost which is not Holy?  Is there a time to give place and to emulate the elements of  demons and evil?  (2 Corinthians 6:14-18 KJV) “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”

          Yes, we will be singing Joy To The World the Lord has come, let earth receive her King......but do you think God will believe we mean it?
