On Tuesday, October 31st, a lot of people in this land will celebrate Halloween.  Though begun as a day to remember many Godly people and the truth they gave to the world, it has degenerated into becoming the high day of satanism throughout the world.  Hideous acts of worship to satan will be done on this night.  The occult will have its greatest celebration on this night.  But it was not always so in America.

Up until the mid-1800s, America celebrated a different day on October 31st.  It was known as Reformation Day; and it reminded Americans of the great price that was paid for the “liberty of conscience”.  It was a celebration of the liberty brought to the personal life and the life of the nation as a result of men laying down their lives to stand with the truth of the Bible.

Reformation Day 1

That liberty had begun with John Wycliffe, an Englishman in the mid-1300s, who translated the Bible into the language of the common people.  Being able Continue reading

October 31st, 2017, will have marked the great change in history which began to restore the “liberty of conscience” to the human race.  Five hundred years ago a young priest Halloween or Reformation Day 1tacked on the door of the church in Wittenberg, Germany a document that changed the course of history.  Martin Luther was that young priest, and his bold act threw off the religious yoke of “the tyranny of the mind”.  And while most in America now think of October 31st as Halloween, that’s a “Johnny-come-lately” idea.  Up until the mid-1800s, on October 31st, we celebrated “Reformation Day”, for that was the day the mind of man began to be set free from hundreds of years of living in the fear of what other men thought.  Once again, man began to learn that only God has the right to shape our minds for He created us, and thus by rights, owns us and our minds.  What Martin Luther did would start to restore the precious freedom Jesus talked about when He stated,

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.” (John 8:32)

We call that truth, the “liberty of conscience”, and it is a most sacred part of “religious liberty”.  God used a lowly young boy, grown into a courageous young man, to Continue reading

Columbus Defended 1“In 1492, Columbus sailed the Ocean blue.”  Thus, children in America learned the little rhyme which firmly fixed in our minds who was responsible for the American continents being discovered.  The last two generations haven’t learned that because some in what is called “higher education” circles didn’t want us to know who Columbus was.  Many in those circles came to be ashamed of Columbus’ God because they were convicted by the mentioning of the Name of Jesus.  Since Columbus was a devout man and often mentioned God and Jesus Christ, they tried to remove him from our history.  Now that war against his name has reached new heights.

In September, a statue of Columbus in Binghamton, New York, had the word “murderer” painted on it.  In New York City, Columbus’ statue in Central Park was vandalized.  The New York City mayor’s, answer to that was to appoint a commission to consider which historical monuments should be removed!

I remember Rich DeVos, Betsy DeVos’ father-in-law, saying Continue reading
