Arise, Ye Dead! Halloween, a Triumphal Day?!

Today marks the eve of one of my favorite days of the year, All Saints' Day! Here is a painting of the French impressionist artist Georges Rouault who depicts that Great Day of Resurrection that has been secured for all of the Lord's saints on account of Jesus' triumph in His death and resurrection! Here's a helpful little article about the ways in which the Christian can appropriate meaning from Halloween: Trick or Treat? It's Martin Luther Also consider this article written by James B. Jordan on the function of Halloween likely utilized at some point in history to mock all powers of evil that were conquered and defeated at the Cross: Concerning Halloween.

"And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross." -Col. 2:15
