All Saint's Day

All Satan's Day

This is the examination of what is known as "All Saint's Day," which should be more appropriately named, "All Satan's Day." This study is a sort of continuation of the historical development of Halloween, especially as it's popularly practiced in our Western society and, sadly, as believers. We won't spare any time and get right into it.

The Encyclopedia Britannica states the following:[1]

All Saints’ Dayalso called All Hallows’ Day, Hallowmas, or Feast of All Saints, in the Christian church, a day commemorating all the saints of the church, both known and unknown, celebrated on November 1 in the Western churches and on the first Sunday after Pentecost in the Eastern churches. Its origin cannot be traced with certainty, and it has been observed on various days in different places. A feast of all martyrs was kept on May 13 in the Eastern church according to Ephraem Syrus (died c. 373), which may have determined the choice of May 13 by Pope Boniface IV when he dedicated the Pantheon in Rome as a church in honour of the Blessed Virgin and all martyrs in 609.

Please note that often times when "the church" is used by secular sources, and many evangelical people, it refers to the [supposed] "Universal" church. In this case, it refers to the Roman Catholic whore. Now, of this Pagan Catholic holiday, the Encyclopedia says, "Its origin cannot be traced with certainty," which is patently false. Note the following lengthy citation:[2]

So the Catholic Church, with the backing of the government, decided to “white-wash” a Roman holiday. Tired of admonishing the Romans for engaging in drunken revelries as an excuse to honor the dead (and desiring more converts), Pope Boniface IV, in A.D. 609, declared Feralia to be Christian. Instead of honoring all of the dead, they were now just to honor dead “saints.” Instead of drunken revelries, it would be a day of prayer and meditation. Instead of calling it Feralia, he changed it to All Saints’ Day. And he moved the date of its observance from February 21 to May 13. “Boniface IV, [on] 13 May, 609, or 610, consecrated the Pantheon in Rome to the Blessed Virgin and all the martyrs, ordering an anniversary” (Ibid.).

As usual, the Catholics adopted a pagan festival and "made it Christian." Don't be fooled, though--it's still pagan. But I wonder who can provide a chapter and verse supporting the action taken by the Catholics, and Protestants, for that matter? I wonder where in the Bible it says we're to honor dead "saints." There isn't one, friend. The article continues,

Then, Pope Gregory III, who reigned 731-741, “consecrated a chapel in the Basilica of St. Peter to all the saints and fixed the anniversary for 1 November” (Catholic Encyclopedia). He broadened “the festival [of All Saints’ Day] to include all saints as well as all martyrs."

Meanwhile, the Celts were still observing the festival of Samhain in one form or another. The Catholic Church took note and Pope Gregory IV (827-844) attempted to replace it by moving All Saints’ Day from May 13 to November 1—the same day as Samhain—officially extending the festival to the entire church. All Saints’ Day became known as All Hallows Day, while October 31 became All Hallows Eve and, eventually, Halloween.

Boniface made the declaration that the day was to be observed only for saints; Gregory IV expanded the days of observance (?), which meant it more greatly adopted the Celtic festival. And, in typical fashion, the names were changed in an effort to mask over the dark, sordid history of the actual pagan festival: (All Saints Day = All Hallows Day/ All Hallows Eve = Halloween). 


Dear reader, don't be led to believe that anything "formerly" pagan and "Christianized" has lost any of its original meaning. Whether it's Halloween or All Saint's Day, it is rooted in pagan, ungodly, Satanic tradition. It's been given a nice veneer, but the truth of Scripture and history is enough to sand it back down to its ugly, rotten surface.

Lastly, even those who may read this and think, "Well, I'm not Catholic, so I don't celebrate 'All Saint's Day. I just celebrate 'Reformation Day'," please read my other post titled Until the Time of Reformation, which exposes Martin Luther as a tyrant, murderer, and false prophet. 

May the Lord bless you as you continue to strive to be counted worthy!
