I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, That I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse: Therefore choose life that you may live, you and your children.
Jesus Christ the Great I AM – Deuteronomy 30:19
Who is a liar but he (she) that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He (she) is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 1 John 2:22
If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the holy angels. Therefore everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. Jesus Christ
Welcome to the Operation Morning Star (Richard Boyden) page!
A good many of you have come here because of “denigrating lies and slander targeting me” for “personalized assassination” by “jacketing me with lies and slander to discredit me”, my work with Operation Morning Star to this day which you have found on the “Internet”!
I take that as a complement actually. In fact you I want you to believe them! But…personally I have in response chosen to share the history of my work in Indian Country while exposing the spiritual sources of and who from who in ‘most cases” I indentify with documentation that THEY are after the order of “The Liar and Murderer from the beginning”…even Satan!
I will start with one of the most important God led and inspired works I was involved in because it had to do with the war over the souls of those Satan hated and wanted DEAD! Of course I was targeted for doing this by those who “loved listening to his voice” he used to try and destroy me and who they were his…in “most cases”…deceived victims of his spiritual deception.
Over the last 15 years I have been actively involved in the epidemic of “suicide” in Indian Country and was inspired by God to write the “Journey To The Spirit World By Suicide”paper of which over 5000 copies were given out on 4 reservations in South Dakota. I have spoken about suicide in jails, detention centers, on radio, in boarding schools, and in homes on those same reservations. I truly believe that what was written will save lives if read even as those who have read it no longer chose to seriously consider suicide as a option in their lives.
The first Satan led attack to destroy this work was by the Pedophile Sexually Molesting of Native American children Catholic “Church of the Devil” on the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Reservation headed by “Pedophile Priesthood” leader John Hatcher. He removed after one week, a one hour radio program that was having Jesus Moving with successful results with families listening to this program who immediately invited into their homes, talking to their children who as young as 7 expressed thoughts (from Satan) to kill themselves. Parents were grateful and I said “Thank God”.
Hatchers reason for removing? “Desecrating the church” which meant…the pedophile history of this Devil Owned Church would sooner or later be discussed as the originator of this diabolical history of Satanic inspired sexual abuse and murder of Indigenous/Native Peoples!
The second attack came from Scott Prentice, a member of the Pedophile Infested Free Masonic fraternity of Lucifer…SATAN! He both hacked this web page, deleted the paper on suicide and THE ONE HOUR RADIO RECORDING THAT WAS GOD INSPIRED AND SAVING NATIVE AMERICAN CHILDREN’S LIVES! This made sense he told me personally that Native Americans were “SAVAGES”!
This Satanist professes to be a “christian” while rejecting the Sodomite condemnation in those Scriptures written by Paul in the New Testament which led me to come to the conclusion is that Prentice is a Lucifer owned soul, and a Anti-Christ Nazi Sodomite Endorsing/Pedophile upholding Racial Supremist to the max!
I once trusted him…worked for him only to discover …”thanks to God”…that is was a diabolical soul representing darkness and evil! His business is Black Hills Portal. He is on “FBI record” for hacking my page here and my personal page which exposes Free Masonry as SATANIC TO THE CORE even as Prentice is!
For public record…contrary to the LIES from the Satan inspired “LIARS”…
I have NEVER been escorted off any of the Reservation, nor been accused or charged with RAPE as “rumored”/slandered by REAL RAPISTS AND NAZI SODOMITIE PEDOPHILES BELOW and those in the American Indian Movement of DOCUMENTED RAPISTS, KILLERS, PEDOPHILES, AND DRUG DEALERS! (Click HERE to read about the Real American Indian Movement). Neither did I make MONEY or a salary or buy a “new truck” but I did invest over $75,000 on trucks, expenses, repairs, financially assisting families and elders in need and Almighty God is my witness. In fact…HE has implemented harsh JUDGMENTS on those guilty of lying about me…many in fact including DEATH!
One can call and ask the FBI i.e. Bob Perry Agent In Charge Rapid City SD) BUT…for over 20 years I did deliver over $100,000 in wood burning stoves as well as over 500 tons of food etc. to the Pine Ridge, Rosebud, Cheyenne River, Crow Creek Reservations in South Dakota which is more then ANY AMERICAN INDIAN MOVMENT LEADER/FOUNDER/MEMBER EVER DID!
Facebook SEARCH Richard Boyden and you will see lies spread about me by convicted felon and scammer Autumn Two Bulls. She uses a “fake Lakota name” AKA: Okichize Wiohitka Win and continues to start and use for personal use “scam programs” on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. One scam was her father Cornell Conroy setting up a $10,000 cash bond bail Facebook page for her when there was NONE!
The Two Bulls family have been involved in stealing millions, drug dealing, and the cover-up of rapes, child molestation, and murder on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. My exposing them is the reason why they have “jacketed me with LIES and SLANDER” which I take as a complement given the Satan owned source…who in fact are NOT Lakota but PreTendians!
PREFACE: ONE OF MANY FACEBOK SLANDER PAGES about me that was “custom made” for yours truly by the above two NOT NATIVE AMERICANS SODOMITE NAZI RAPING PEDOPHILES OF YOUNG GIRLS…

Example of AIM RAPIST is the famous Russell Means. Click HERE to read (COMMENTS ESP!) about his raping history and who John Trudell identifies with spiritually and temporally!
Spiritually, Trudell is a Satanist as is Clyde Bellecourt who has a PENTAGRAM on his “American Indian Shirt”. Bellecourt is a FELON “convicted drug dealer” who sold LSD and Cocaine to Native Americans! Satanism is the AIM “religion” as evidenced by their “WORKS”!

I have kept in tact the “Sponsorship Program” open if anyone wants to help a Lakota family in need.
For over 23 years OMS delivered over 500 tons of food and other items of need…including over $100,000 in wood burning stoves to Elders and families, thousands of food producing garden plants, appliances, furniture, tools and like NEW clothing!
“Sponsoring” a Elder or Family means you contact the grocery store or utility companies and “assist” them by purchasing food or propane “In Their Name”!
Like a “matchmaking service”. I contact those in need saying YOU want to “sponsor” them. You will then get all their contact info.
If you want to go visit, give away a car of truck or send presents and gifts to children etc…that is between you and those you are “matched with”.
I thank God for using me to help those that He moved my heart to love. I thank all those who of you who assisted me as you have to feed and cloth thousands of American Indians in South Dakota. May God bless each of you for doing what you did because of the love of Jesus in your hearts for His people.

There are a number of reasons why I terminated most of Operation Morning Star but the PRIMARY REASON is directly connected to the Satan/Occult spirituality of those that have worked hard to assassinate my credibility and to destroy me in their admitting to listening to their “god SATAN” to do just that. What is shared is what I have been led by God to share as to why I have taken a step back from this work among most other endeavors.
If one is a “witch or a “New Ager” working with and among American Indians, then this information is for you! Realize by New Age Definition you are a “racist hater and exterminator” of the very people one states they “love”!
Occult Connections to Satan, Child Sacrifice, OTO, Aleister Crowley, Thelma, and Druids which represents and defines the spiritual essence of the New Age Movement.
I have put together LINKS with information on the Occult and thus Satan through theAliester Crowley, Witch, OTO, Thelma Druid connections.
Click HERE and HERE for a basic understanding of the spiritual identity and the personal history of those who promised God to “love honor and cherish me until death do us part” as well as those who I have unselfishly sacrificed for!
Furthermore, these same “spiritualists” who have worked to destroy me have also worked to do the same to any all things that is Native America! Just remember that Hitler was in fact a NEW AGER as was L. Frank Baum…”Mr. Wizard of Oz” who said about Sitting Bull and ALL Native Americans…. “Annihilate them ALL”!
Click HERE to see a JEWISH commentary on Baum…this race hater of non-Whites…like ALL New Age beliefs state!
Same with Custer and all FREE MASONS who worship their god LUCIFER who said “The only good Indian is a DEAD Indian!
I have chose to identify in particular those whose “spiritual foundation of lies, murder, and darkness” represent the “Liar and Murderer from the beginning”…even Satan!
In particular because of my over 23 years of working in Indian Country through Operation Morning Star, I chose to start with a with a man who is a documented murderer and liar and who’s friends are killers, rapists, pedophiles, and drug dealers in what is called The American Indian Movement.
His name is John Trudell.
Click HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE to read about this Satan owned “Anti-Christ” soul who was American Indian Movement Chairman when he and his “brotherhood” actualized the rape and murder of First Nations woman Annie Mae Aquash, the murder of Black Man Perry Ray Robinson (Click HERE about AIMS murder of Robinson), 3 White woman and the murder of possibly up to 11 others at Wounded Knee in 1973 on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation!
And to think some of my “accusers” call me a RACIST while they IDOLIZE THEIR RACIST MURDERERS OF THIS BLACK MAN!
Click HERE to understand John Trudells BELIEFS…,his “SPRITUALITY” showing that he is in fact a New Age Worshipping Luciferian…say SATANIST!
Notice Trudell in the message below states “spirit knows what I say…” True words spoken by a Satan owned lying murdering soul!
Trudell personally sent me this “threatening message” on Facebook. Why? Because I have exposed his lying murdering soul along with his “We have been watching you”…yes Trudell’s American Indian Movement of fellow killers, rapists, pedophiles etc.
And another man who’s spiritual essence is found in that which you will see below is without a doubt…totally Satanic and Anti-Christ in his spiritually identifying with abominations that include “child murder/sacrifice” and the very “worship of Satan”.
He is a professed DRUID…READ AND LEARN what he represents with those like him in their beliefs and practices of sexual perversion which includes the glorifying of sodomy and all that is “filthy” in the sight of Almighty God and child sacrifice.
His Facebook page and name is Blaze Lee Dragon and he states that the spiritual origins of what he believes are “are fairly accurate“!
Someone made the made the following statement concerning me.
“When there is judgment, condemnation and if one is shunned/disowned it is very wrong. That’s when I get so frustrated n want to remind them of some of the virtues that they claim to follow and yet they contradict from their own religious beliefs by their harsh n negative actions. I think (some) ppl need to just look in the mirror when their preaching instead of acting so condescending to others”
My response to this same person who sent me an email and said they they deliberately “listened to Satan to DESTROY me”…talk about judgment, condemnation, and being disowned…when in fact they have done the same to me. The difference between them and I is that what I expose is of and from God and what they try to “justify” is the works of Satan in their lives and those they chose to identify with spiritually and temporally…including justifying fornication and adultery with the same “Satan led souls” the defend!
Add to this the TRUTH of “LEFT HAND OF SEXUAL DARKNESS” that one brings with them…and that is the very essence of the spirituality of a John Trudell…which IS THE VERY SEXUAL DARKNESS that is directly connected to the ONE who appeared to them…Aleister Crowley…

Click HERE for “Incubi Succubi Sex With DEMONS”…as inspired by Satan “your father”… who through one of his “expeverted demons” said to one of his PRIMARY targets…”I want what you have” and WHY?
His goal is to make you his “Sacred Whore”… “Spiritual Prostitute” and have “SEX WITH YOU” when he “CHANNELS IN YOU…WHICH ENABLES HIM TO EXPERIENCE THE “SEXUAL DARKNESS” HE INSPIRES called “Sexual Magic”…

This is exactly why TRUDELLS FEMALE FOLLOWERS “like him” because he is inspired by the same SPIRIT of “sexual darkness” as explained HERE with his “sexual poetry” being the CHANNEL FOR DEMONS to “excite sexually”!
So…Crowley continues to “POSSESS/own souls” through “a” Trudell or someone of the “same spirit” which inspires “fornication and adultery” and will continue unless ONE REPENTS!
Crowley also promoted ANAL INTERCOURSE/SODOMY which abomination was the foundation of ALL “Mystery Religions” and the NAZI’S!
And there was also sodomites in the land and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel. 1Kings 14.24

“His women had to measure up to his definition of “Scarlet Woman.” The Scarlet Woman’s oath was to be loud and adulterous”
It is not a matter of “contradicting religious beliefs, judging, or acting condescending” but rather “vindicating myself” WITH THE TRUTH of what happened to me spiritually and temporally as a direct result of those who listen to Satan in their attacks of me.
Below are links to the “origins” leading direct to the Satanic inspired literal sacrifice of children, sexual perversion and sadism, and the phallic worship of Druids like Blaze Lee and those who follow that diabolical spirit willingly.
Click HERE to see examples of stories documenting Satanic Ritual Sacrifice of animals and children…WITCHES involved of course and after the order of Aliester Crowley’s examples of over 150 children murdered in the NAME OF SATAN!
I ask ANYONE to find ANY VIRTURES I have personally expressed that are anything close to the pure Satanic evil and filth that I document! It is one thing to be tempted and even give in to temptation but it is another to SPIRITUALLY BE SEXUALLY DARK IN TIME AND ETERNITY!
I have indeed had to confront the “temptations” of as brought into my life by those who apologized for “bringing that very sexual darkness and perversion” into my life because of their choices of following “devils” such as “Aleister Crowley” who in fact follows them, channels into and speaks through them, as well as “lives in their home”.
It is further confirmed who “owns one” when they state “IT IS SO GOOD TO BE HOME”..even where Crowley found place/LIVES under their bed”…with their family, children, and grandchildren even!
They ALL in fact admitted listening to Crowley “breath under the bed” of my “Satan inspired DESTROYER” !
No wonder he attacks those ONLY when one is led to one sent from God!
I am sharing this information about the basic foundation of the Occult to Satan and who attack those who are called to represent Jesus Christ in the realms of time.
Click HERE and know that those who attack the servants of Jesus Christ will be with Satan in the lake of fire and brimstone unless they repent…those who chose to “spiritually divorce” their husbands to marry “spiritually” and or commit adultery with those who are inspired by the very DEMON/SATAN who appeared to them as a child…even he who entered into her WHEN a child!
It should be noted when a SON quotes Aleister Crowley as well as tries to kill himself that there is a direct connection to the “Sins of Father/Mother”…
Click HERE to see what God states and realize who a “Satanic Curse” starts on a family and which curse came into being through PARENTS and WILL remain in time and continue into eternity if NOT repented of.
The information below further exposes Satan and his dark works found among those “who love to listen to him” in spite of their “outward appearance” representing “love and light”…keeping in mind that Satan appears and works as a “Angel of Light” in their lives and who owns “witches” and ALL in Free Masonry and the New Age Movement as documented below!

Our religion therefore, for the People, is the Cult of the Sun, who is our particular star of the Body of Nuit, from whom, in the strictest scientific sense, come this earth, a chilled spark of Him, and all our Light and Life. His vice-regent and representative in the animal kingdom is His cognate symbol the Phallus, representing Love and Liberty. Ra-Hoor-Khuit, like all true Gods, is therefore a Solar-Phallic deity. “SAY LUCIFER >>>SATAN!”
The DEVIL “Aleister Crowley” has appeared to my accusers.
Read and learn about this Satanist and Beast and his filthy vile sexually perverted beliefs!
Aleister Crowley, New Comment to Liber AL, verse III:22
Thelema is a solar-phallic gnostic religio-philosophy, or religion as some prefer to call it. It opposes the beliefs and practices of Christianity — among other religions — and offers in its place the central role of the individual and the procreative aspects of life, symbolized by both the sun and the phallus. It is satanic because it opposes the assertions of Judaism and Christianity regarding the role God, Jesus, original sin, and so forth, and values the myth of Satan as one who rebelled again Jehovah.
Thelema rejects all these notions that enslave humanity to a deity that would demand certain beliefs and actions and punish those who disobey. Satan represents the rejection of this belief system and the exultation of the individual. Is Satan central to Thelema? No. Is Satan mentioned in Thelema? Yes, frequently.
It is also to be considered that Nu is connected with North, while Had is Sad, Set, Satan, Sat (equals “Being” in Sanskrit), South. He is then the Sun, one point concentring Space, as also is any other star. The word ABRAHADABRA is from Abrasax, Father Sun, which adds to 365.
ibid., verse I:1
Satan, as illustrated above, is often lumped together with other deities from various mythologies (including Christianity) and is organized according to classical characteristics. Satan is associated with the south, with the element fire or air.1 These are also the elements associated with the Egyptian god, Ra, the sun. So is Satan important in the Thelemic system? Yes. Is he the central figure or model worshipped? No.
Satan is just one deity of many associated with some aspect of the solar-phallus which is the central idea or thing worshipped in Thelema.
This becomes even more apparent when one examines the suggested rituals of Thelema devised by Aleister Crowley.
They mention numerous deities and names of God, but rarely does Satan comes up, and usually only in commentaries.2
So why does Satan come up in the first place? Thelema uses the divine names, images, stories and characteristics of a variety of religions and mythologies in its literature and practice. The central deities in Liber AL, are represented as Egyptian.
Crowley frequently makes reference to classical mythologies of the Greeks and Romans—such as in his Hymn to Pan, or his use of the Greek name, To Mega Therion. But probably the most influential mythology informing and underlying Thelema is that of the Abrahamic myths, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. This is apparent in a variety of places including Crowley’s moniker, The Great Beast, a reference to the Book of Revelation.
Other influences on Thelema directly related to Christianity are its millennialism, its emphasis on texts, and the use of certain names and actions in ritual, including the Gnostic Mass, which was modelled on a Christian Eucharistic ceremony. Crowley’s own background and the immersion in fundamentalist Protestantism resulted in a significant Christian influence on Thelema. Sometimes this manifested in symbolism, action, or belief. Other times it emerged as a distinct anti-Christian rhetoric, action, or belief.
This is why the symbol of Satan, as the adversary or rebel to the Christian god, was a frequent theme in Crowley’s work.
Those who try to downplay Satan’s presence in Thelemic material are trying to white wash Thelema’s distinct anti-Christian nature and the valuing of the myth of Satan. But being anti-Christian, however, does not mean Thelema is a form of Satanism. It does, however, mean that Thelema is certainly satanic. Ultimately the difference comes down to semantics. Do Thelemites worship Satan — as deity or otherwise? No.
Is Satan a common and potent symbol in Thelemic literature?
Yes. For some, the simple mention of Satan in a positive light is enough to claim Thelema is a form of Satanism. This type of thinking, however, would also mean that Thelema is an Egyptian religion, as it frequently mentions Egyptian deities; is a Hellenistic religion, as it frequently references classical Greek deities; as well as a Roman religion and a form of Islam, because all these mythologies are referenced positively in Thelemic literature. Thelemic literature values the myth of Satan, its symbolism and narrative without immediately jumping to the worship of Satan. Thus, Thelema is satanic but is not a form of Satanism.

The Pagan Roots Of Halloween By Michael Snyder, on October 21st, 2014
Most people that celebrate Halloween have absolutely no idea what they are actually celebrating. Even though approximately 70 percent of Americans will participate in Halloween festivities once again this year, the vast majority of them are clueless about the fact that this is a holiday that is thousands of years old and that has deeply pagan roots. If you are going to celebrate something, shouldn’t you at least know what you are celebrating?
Before it was ever known as Halloween, this festival was known as Samhain. According to Wikipedia, Samhain “is mentioned in some of the earliest Irish literature and is known to have pre-Christian roots”.
The ancient Celts believed that Samhain was the time when the veil between the spirit world and our world was lifted and the ghosts of the dead were able to freely mingle with the living. It was also a time to honor the Lord of the Dead known as Bel (note the similarity to Baal) or Chrom.
Almost every major Halloween tradition including the jack-o’-lantern, trick-or-treating and wearing costumes is rooted in ancient Celtic practices. In many areas of early America, Halloween was considered to be so evil that it was banned. But today most Americans don’t even think twice about celebrating it.
To most people these days, Halloween is just a fun time to dress up, eat candy and attend parties.
But there are others that take this holiday extremely seriously.
For Wiccans, it is one of the most important times of the year.
The following description of Samhain comes from wicca.com…
Samhain, (pronounced SOW-in, SAH-vin, or SAM-hayne) means “End of Summer”, and is the third and final Harvest. The dark winter half of the year commences on this Sabbat.
It is generally celebrated on October 31st, but some traditions prefer November 1st. It is one of the two “spirit-nights” each year, the other being Beltane. It is a magical interval when the mundane laws of time and space are temporarily suspended, and the Thin Veil between the worlds is lifted. Communicating with ancestors and departed loved ones is easy at this time, for they journey through this world on their way to the Summerlands.
It is a time to study the Dark Mysteries and honor the Dark Mother and the Dark Father, symbolized by the Crone and her aged Consort.
Originally the “Feast of the Dead” was celebrated in Celtic countries by leaving food offerings on altars and doorsteps for the “wandering dead”. Today a lot of practitioners still carry out that tradition. Single candles were lit and left in a window to help guide the spirits of ancestors and loved ones home. Extra chairs were set to the table and around the hearth for the unseen guest. Apples were buried along roadsides and paths for spirits who were lost or had no descendants to provide for them. Turnips were hollowed out and carved to look like protective spirits, for this was a night of magic and chaos. The Wee Folke became very active, pulling pranks on unsuspecting humans. Traveling after dark was was not advised. People dressed in white (like ghosts), wore disguises made of straw, or dressed as the opposite gender in order to fool the Nature spirits.
So how in the world did a pagan festival known as Samhain become the holiday known as “Halloween” that we celebrate today?
Well, in the early seventh century a Catholic Pope known as Gregory the First decided that the best approach to ensure the continued spread of Catholicism was to “christianize” existing pagan holidays and practices…
As a result of their efforts to wipe out “pagan” holidays, such as Samhain, the Christians succeeded in effecting major transformations in it. In 601 A.D. Pope Gregory the First issued a now famous edict to his missionaries concerning the native beliefs and customs of the peoples he hoped to convert. Rather than try to obliterate native peoples’ customs and beliefs, the pope instructed his missionaries to use them: if a group of people worshipped a tree, rather than cut it down, he advised them to consecrate it to Christ and allow its continued worship.
An existing Catholic festival known as All Saints Day (or All Hallows Day) was moved to the same time as Samhain. Eventually, All Hallows Eve became known as “Halloween”, but many of the ancient Celtic traditions never disappeared.
Most people don’t realize this, but some of these ancient traditions even involved human sacrifice.
The following is whatoccult expert Bill Schnoebelen says the Druids would do at this time of the year…
Druids worshiped the sun god, called by names like Bel (Ba’al?) or Chrom. On October 31, they believed that he died and went into the kingdom of the dead, Anwynn.
The purpose of Samhain was to insure his return.
Even witches admit this involved human sacrifice.
Both animal and human blood were believed to be needed to resurrect Bel on Samhain.
Human blood was believed to open the gates of Anwynn and released the spirits for a night.
Thus, October 31 came to be associated with ghosts.
This is not just history. Samhain is still celebrated by Pagans and is the most solemn ceremony on their “religious calendar”.
And of course it is not just Bill Schnoebelen that teaches this.
In fact, the May 1977 edition of National Geographic admitted that Samhain was a time when “firstborn children were sacrificed”.
So back then it definitely was not the light-hearted holiday that most Americans celebrate today.
Other “Halloween traditions” also have their roots in the Druidic practices of the ancient Celts.
For example, have you ever wondered where the “Jack-0-Lantern” comes from?
Here is more from Schnoebelen…
Here it’s a pumpkin, but in Europe it was often a turnip, or a skull with a candle in it. This serves two symbols, 1) the lord of the Dead, a “god” just like a Buddha – in short, an idol. 2) The fearsome face represented the god, Samhain, who would drive off less powerful demons that night.
The lights in the Jack-o-Lantern symbolize the “faery fires” or “Will’o the Wisps” which were believed to be the lost souls flitting through the night. They also hearken back to the huge Samhain “balefires” which were lit to help conjure back the god from the darkness.
The traditions of dressing up in costumes and going trick-or-treating also come from the Druids.
The following is an excerpt from an article posted on CBN.com…
For example, among the ancient Druids, “The ghosts that were thought to throng about the houses of the living were greeted with a banquet-laden table. At the end of the feast, masked and costumed villagers representing the souls of the dead paraded to the outskirts of town leading the ghosts away.”
As already noted, Halloween was thought to be a night when mischievous and evil spirits roamed freely. As in modern poltergeist lore, mischievous spirits could play tricks on the living—so it was advantageous to “hide” from them by wearing costumes.
Masks and costumes were worn to either scare away the ghosts or to keep from being recognized by them:
In Ireland especially, people thought that ghosts and spirits roamed after dark on Halloween. They lit candles or lanterns to keep the spirits away, and if they had to go outside, they wore costumes and masks to frighten the spirits or to keep from being recognized by these unearthly beings.
You may say that “it doesn’t mean that to me”, but even today there are large numbers of people that take this stuff deadly seriously.
On page 96 of the Satanic Bible, Anton LaVey wrote the following…
“After one’s own birthday, the two major Satanic holidays are Walpurgisnacht (May 1st) and Halloween.”
Most people will never see it, but in dark corners and out of the way places some incredibly sinister things will take place in America on Halloween night.
Just like for the ancient Celts, there are people out there that truly believe that it is a night to commune with the spirits.
If you are a pagan and a “witch”, you probably already know all of this stuff.
If you are not a pagan, you might want to think twice before you do things that could potentially open up doorways to Satan’s spirit realm.
What is the answer to this SIN on the part of myself and others? The word is REPENTANCE!
Satan has done his work to turn US away from Jesus and each other and as in times past when we turned to Jesus for deliverance in His destroying the works of Satan in our lives…He did just that and WE were HEALED! HOW? REPENTANCE to God and each other is how!

May God forgive us as we forgive each other when we REPENT is my prayer and hope for us such that He again can deliver us from EVIL! The love of Jesus is NEVER “lost forever”…on the “Liar from the beginning” would have us believe his lie…for as one once said…”There is no love in Satan”. Therefore it is no wonder he attacks the very love Jesus is the author of…even He who said He would fight out battles and destroy the works of Satan” so as to restore the love He was the author of…even that gift of “eternal love” never to be experienced with another because “we loved to listen to Satan” over Jesus as admitted by us.
