Tonight begins the New Moon Observance – this is the Hebrew eighth month of the year.
As popular society begins to rev up for this year’s Occult celebration … let’s look at Halloween’s pagan history :
Samhain… marked the end of the harvest season and beginning of winter or the ‘darker half’ of the year….Offerings of food and drink, or portions of the crops, were left outside for ‘spirits’. The souls of the dead were also said to revisit their homes …. “candles would be lit and prayers formally offered for the souls of the dead. After this the eating, drinking, and games would begin”. … festivities included rituals and games intended to foretell one’s future… Apples and nuts were often used in these divination rituals. They included apple bobbing, … mirror-gazing… Special bonfires were lit …. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halloween
Séances are often conducted on Halloween… A séance is an attempt to communicate with spirits (dead people as well as demons). … Perhaps the best-known .. were those of Mary Todd Lincoln (Abraham Lincoln’s wife) who, grieving the loss of her son, had séances in the White House … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S%C3%A9ance
Every Halloween many people attempt to contact dead magician Harry Houdini at a séance since 1926 … http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/31/travel/houdini-seance/
But there is truly nothing new under the sun … because nations and disobedient Israelites were committing these same types of sins during biblical times. The Most High God, Yah commanded that this should not be done.
Deuteronomy 18:9-12 ” … thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD…”
Necromancy—practice of magic involving communication with the deceased – either by summoning their spirit as an apparition or raising them bodily – for the purpose of divination — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Necromancy
As we come to the end of the 8 day long Feast of Tabernacles observation, let us consider the commandments given by Yah….

Tonight at even begins the Holiest Day of the Year, the DAY of ATONEMENT.
This is the only day that the Most High God, YAHWEH (YHWH, Yah), requires that we conduct a total FAST. It begins at even and goes until tomorrow at evening.
HOLY DAYS IN THE 7TH MONTH
To serve the Creator, YHWH, you must have knowledge of His Law that is written in the first five books of the Holy Bible. For example, in YHWH’s seventh month (September/October), (begins on the New Moon in September and goes thru til the following New Moon) there are four Holy days that you should be mindful of in this month in order to worship and serve the Creator. They are the Feast of Trumpets which is on the 1st day (New Moon) of the seventh month; the Day of Atonement which begins on the 10th day of the seventh month; and the Feasts of Tabernacles, which begins on the 15th day of the seventh month. Tabernacles is an eight-day festival where both the 1st and the 8th days are Sabbaths (Lev. 23:23-44)
