‘Blue Moon’ to appear on Halloween Signaling End of Paganism on Eve of Election

October 18, 2020

As children dress up and wander the streets begging for candy on Halloween, an extra “blue moon” will be shining overhead. At face value, it seems that the additional moon symbolizes the rise of evil in the world three days before the presidential election but one rabbi explains that an “extra” appearance of the moon accompanied the destruction of Sodom.

Halloween Blue Moon

As usual,  the full Harvest Moon, the full moon that occurs closest to the autumnal equinox, will appear on Friday, October 1, but another full moon will appear on Saturday, October 31, investing the month of October with an extra moon, referred to in American folklore as a blue moon. The phrase in modern usage has nothing to do with the actual color of the moon. A blue moon is an additional full moon that appears in a subdivision of a year: either the third of four full moons in a season or a second full moon in a month of the common calendar resulting in a calendar year with 13 full moons. The phenomenon is relatively rare, occurring once every 2.5-3 years, hence the idiom, “Once in a blue moon.”

But the blue moon this year taking place on Halloween is even rarer, appearing every 19 years in some time zones. …

Not only does the blue moon rise over Halloween but it will be three days before the US Presidential election. Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, emphasized that the proximity of the two events is significant. …

Rabbi Berger noted that this Halloween will be seen by idolators as a major time of rejoicing as the moon is a symbol of idolatry.

“Idolators will see the extra moon as a sign that their horrible beliefs are on the rise,” Rabbi Berger said. “But Jewish commentaries explain that on the day that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed, God placed both the sun and the moon that they worshipped in the heavens. If destruction had come upon them by day, they would have said that the moon would have helped them; if by night, they would have declared that the sun would have been their aid. So God brought down destruction on the cities destroyed early in the morning when both the sun and the moon were shining.”

As dawn broke, the angels urged Lot on, saying, “Up, take your wife and your two remaining daughters, lest you be swept away because of the iniquity of the city.” Genesis 19:15

“This year, we see the same message,” Rabbi Berger said. “Even though they pray to the moon, even though they are celebrating their disgusting pagan holiday and enticing children with candy to worship the devil, it is inevitable that in the end, they will fall and people who praise God will be the only ones remaining.”

Halloween’s Pagan Roots

Halloween began as Samhain (pronounced Sow-in), one of the four main pagan holidays celebrated by the Celtics, who lived in areas of Ireland, northern England, and France before Romans conquered the region in the first century CE. Samhain marked the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year.

Similar to modern Halloween, Celtic pagans dressed up in costumes on Samhain and lit bonfires. Samhain was seen as a liminal time when the boundary between this world and the spirit world could more easily be crossed. As such, it was an auspicious time for summoning dark spirits to aid in necromancy, communicating with the dead to foretell the future, a practice explicitly prohibited in the Bible.

Let no one be found among you who consigns his son or daughter to the fire, or who is an augur, a soothsayer, a diviner, a sorcerer, one who casts spells, or one who consults ghosts or familiar spirits, or one who inquires of the dead. Deuteronomy 18:10-11

Samhain was celebrated from sundown October 31 to sundown November 1, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset. People believed that on Samhain, spirits roamed the world, and gifts of food and wine would be left out to appease the spirits. When people left their houses at night, they wore masks so they would be mistaken for fellow ghosts.  …

While many Americans insist that Halloween is a secular, family-oriented holiday, because of its clear origins in paganism and its connection with forbidden necromancy, most halachic (Torah law) authorities prohibit observant Jews from participating in Halloween.

Paganism: A Growing Phenomenon

Studies show that paganism in the U.S. has been growing by leaps and bounds in recent years, accompanied by an increasing mainstream interest in occult-related activities like astrology, tarot, and spellcasting. … The Church of Satan, the first organized church in modern times to be devoted to the figure of Satan, perceives Halloween as an opportunity for the average American to indulge in secret Satanist fantasies. https://www.israel365news.com/159677/blue-moon-to-appear-on-halloween-signaling-end-of-paganism-on-eve-of-election/

Yes, Halloween is pagan. Yes, paganism is growing.

But the fact that there are two full moons in the calendar month of October in 2020 is of no particular significance.

The truth is that those who really obey and believe the God of the Bible do not celebrate Halloween. Yesterday, the Continuing Church of God put together the following sermon on its ContinuingCOG channel:


Is Halloween an actual Christian holiday? Is it listed among the ‘Feast of the Lord’ in Leviticus 23? Where did the date October 31 come from? What about All Saints Day and the Mexican Day of the Dead? Did Celtic Druid observations of Samhain (pronounced sah-vah) occur then? Any similarities to Japanese, Chinese, or Scottish traditions? Is Halloween an important holiday to Satanists and those involved with Wicca? What is the origin of bonfires, costumes, and going door to door? Should Christians dress up as ghosts, witches, harlots, or ‘sexy nurses’ to celebrate it? What are reasons that Protestant pastors and publications like ‘Christianity Today’ say Halloween should be observed? What are the arguments that celebrities such as Kirk Cameron and Hailey Bieber promoted? Do they agree with the Bible? Did early Christians observe anything like Halloween? Are there Roman Catholic leaders for and against the observation of Halloween? How is Halloween claimed to be similar to Christmas and Easter? Does Halloween promote the gospel of the Kingdom of God? Was Halloween part of the original faith that the Apostles Paul and Jude said should be continued/contended for? When did Halloween begin to be observed? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more.
