Any Version of Halloween?
I want to build on some of those roots by taking it one step further by
the Biblical roots
There were three basic needs for any holiday, whether righteous or not,
during ancient times:
1: People to officiate a holiday.
2: Tribal people for their own tribal rituals.
3: A date for the holiday.
AN ACCOUNT OF THE ORIGINS OF
The basics of Halloween, formerly known as "All Hallows Eve", goes back
to the Anglo-Saxon times and further
back during the Roman occupation of Gaul (France) and Britain.
The ancient times of Halloween were based on the Celtic and Gaelic
Druids, the so-called priests.
If one asks anyone on the streets from what country Halloween
those who know would say from Great Britain and Western Europe.
The date of Halloween that we know today, October 31st, came from
This next segment will be the next step to connect these three main
factors further back, in general, to the biblical period.
THE PEOPLE THAT OFFICIATE
THE PAGAN RITUAL
It has been well known that
there were tribal peoples who played
religious role on Halloween. These people are called the Druids. They
were the earliest ones known to celebrate this pagan holiday. According
to Wikipedia, they are usually high ranking people in their
social status. They were like the Jewish people of Yeshua's
time who were not Levites, but those who were of high social and
political status. Though they were pagan, they were, in general, not
proper officiators, or one could say "priests", to do the ceremonial
activities, but simply common people not of priestly status or of the
ANCIENT TRIBES INVOLVED WITH THE PAGAN RITUAL
These activities were based on the fact that these ancient western
tribes, according to
Yair Davidiy of Brit Am
and Hebrew Nations,
they are the
ancient descendants of the lost ten northern tribes of Israel. These
tribal names of some of the tribes during the Anglo-Saxon period:
Gauls (modern day France and Southwestern Scotland)
Celts (modern day Ireland)
Anglos (modern day England)
As one knows, letters can change slightly in words or names throughout
One example is
Isaac's name in Hebrew, commonly written "qxuy"-
Khet, Kuph (pronounced 'Yits-khak'). But in Psalms 105 verse 9 the
Hebrew name of Isaac is
Khet, Kuph (pronounced 'Yis-khak'). This is one of many examples that
have an altering of
letters, but yet the same name and person.
can see the
words "Gaul" and "Anglo" have the same common
letters "g" and "l". Celt has the letter "c" that could be similar to
the letter "g", and it contains the letter "l" in its name as well.
Take the "g" and the
"l", put them together, we get "gl".
There is a Hebrew word with those
two lettersm and it is "gahl"- Gimel, Lamed (lg).
It comes from
the Hebrew word "galah"- Gimel, Lamed Heh (hlg).
It comes from
Strong's concordance number 1540, and its definition
primitive root; to denude (especially in a disgraceful sense); by
implication to exile (captives being usually stripped); figuratively to
reveal: - + advertise, appear, bewray, bring, (carry, lead,
captive (into captivity), depart, disclose, discover, exile, be gone,
open, X plainly, publish, remove, reveal, X shamelessly, shew, X
surely, tell, uncover.
It is also where we get the Hebrew word "galut"- Gimel, Lamed
mentioned in the Hebrew Biblical Text. This Hebrew word means "exile".
Therefore, these were the "exiled people".
On a page from Caesar's
War, Caesar explained the
tribal people in Gaul,
which is in France:
This is a map of the tribal locations of Gaul in Caesar's day
Another tribal name is "Saxon" (modern day England).
In this case one letter is missing from this tribal name to see its
true identity. It is letter "i". Add the letter before the name and one
gets "Isaxon". Sounds very much like "Isaacson". It is because they
are. They are revealing themselves as the sons of Isaac. They are also
of the decsendants of Jacob, the son of Isaac. Ten of Jacob's sons are
descendants of the lost
ten northern tribes of Israel. Those are the ones who later separated
to make their own kingdom during the reign of Rehoboam, son of King
One more ancient tribal name in western Europe is "Bretons" (modern day
Northern France and England). The name should speak for itself. Change
the "e" to an "i"
and we get "Britons". The name is of the Hebrew word "brith" meaning
"covenant". That is why Yair Davidiy calls them, based on the name of
his web site, "Brit Am" or "covenant people". This is the tribal name
that "Britain" is called.
This is a map taken from Wikipedia on the Saxons showing most of these
major tribes in Western Europe in the fifth century AD
in this section, there is strong proof that the ancient tribes in
Britain and France were descendants of the lost ten northern tribes of

THE TIME OF THE PAGAN DAY
A Gaelic ritual that is observed today, during the time of Halloween,
is called "Sahmain" (pronounced Sah-win). According to Wikipedia, this
word defines a Gealic month, and the ritual occurs between October 31st
to November 2nd. This is the link to the Wikipedia page:
This is a perspective to the origin of Sahmain: First
that this event occurs, at the earliest, in October. Since
know that Sahmain is a Gaelic month, there is a Hebrew word that
relates to this term, and it is the word "Shemonah" (hnms).
It is from Strong's concordance number 8083, and its definition
H8082 through the idea of plumpness; a cardinal number, eight (as if a
surplus above the “perfect” seven); also (as ordinal)
eighth: - eight
([-een, -eenth]), eighth.
"Shemonah" is the Hebrew number "eight". Going back to October, the
tenth month of the
Gregorian year, the word "Oct" in October is Latin for "eight". Based
on this information, this establishes that Sahmain is eight, meaning
the eighth month in
the Hebrew calendar. Also, in generality, the dates of Haloween between
the end of
October and the beginning of November on our Gregorian calendar is in
the same time frame as half way in the Biblical eighth month in the
calendar, which occurs in generality between mid October and mid
BIBLICAL ACCOUNT OF THE ORIGIN OF HALLOWEEN
This is the Biblical scripture of the beginning of modern day Halloween 1
[King] Jeroboam [of the northern kingdom of Israel] built ta-Shechem in
mount Ephraim, and
dwelt therein; and went
out from thence, and built ta-Penuel. 26
And Jeroboam said
in his heart,
Now shall the kingdom return to the house of David: 27 If this people
go up to do sacrifice in the house of hwhy at
Jerusalem, then shall
the heart of this people turn again unto their lord, even unto Rehoboam
king of Judah, and they shall kill me, and go again to Rehoboam king of
Judah. 28 Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold,
and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem:
behold thy elohim, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of
Egypt. 29 And he set ta-the one in
Bethel, and ta-the other
put he in Dan.
30 And this thing became a sin: for the people went to worship
before the one, even unto Dan. 31 And he madeta-an house of high
places, and made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of
the sons of Levi. 32 And
Jeroboam ordained a feast in the eighth month,
on the fifteenth day of the month, like unto the feast that is in
Judah, and he offered upon
the altar. So did he in Bethel,
unto the calves that he had made: and he placed in Bethel ta-the priests
of the high places which he had made. 33 So he offered upon the altar
which he had made in Bethel the fifteenth day of the eighth month, even
in the month which he had devised of his own heart; and made a
feast unto the sons of Israel:
and he offered upon the
altar of the
Jeroboam of the Ten Northern Tribes of Israel, created common priests,
not of the tribe of Levi from The
Northern Tribes of Israel
made the date of the eighth month of the
fifteenth day of the month.
He did this because he was afraid that the people he was reigning would
go to Jerusalem and want to return to unite with King Rehoboam. His
fear caused him to not believe in hwhy
that he would rule the northern kingdom.
One more segment to this teaching
In some of my Torah
portions, I have made note regarding The
Food Covenant, and I give full credit to Rico Cortes of Wisdom In Torah
Ministries for revealing this to me. As I made note in the Torah
portions, a food covenant is the final step that is used in various
kinds of means during Biblical times: business deals, marriages,
agreements, excepting the elohim one submits to, and the exceptance of
high holy day. In this case of this teaching in the book of Kings
mentioned above, in verse thirty three, they made a feast. This feast
was an act of accepting the elohim King Jeroboam created, and that fact
that they ate on that day to these elohim sealed their covenant saying
that this day is their festive day to offer to their pagan elohim, just
like what happened to some of the Israelite men who were involved with
the Moab pagan elohim in the Torah portion of Balak
Num 25:1 And
dwelled in the Shittim, and the people profaned to fornicate to the
daughters of Moab. 2 And they called the people to
sacrifices of their elohim: and the people ate, and bowed down to their
elohim. 3 And Israel joined to Baal Peor: and burned
anger of hwhy among
Theysealed their covenant
to the Moabite pagan elohim, and it
cost them their lives. King Jeroboam caused the Northern ten tribes to
accept the pagan elohim of the golden calf and separated themselves
from the true Elohim
and the true location where they were to offer to hwhy,
Jerusalem. This cost the Ten Northern Tribes of Israel to ultimately
lose their inheritance in the land, and resulted in hwhy
divorcing them from the covenant and their exile into Assyria around
The descendants of these false priests became the Druids. The
descendants of the Ten
Northern Tribes of Israel
in Western Europe and Great Britain. King Jeroboam's feast, on the
fifteenth day of the eighth month, later became the calendar date for
the observance of Halloween on October
We need to forgive King
Jeroboam for his fears that caused him
create this pagan day, and ask hwhy
to forgive us for practicing our ancestors' pagan feast that our uncle
King Jeroboam created and break the food covenant that sealed our
ancestors' fates. I strongly urge those who are considering to
participate in these activities not to do it and not partake of the
food during Halloween.
This is the result of
King Jeroboam's rebellion against hwhy,
and if one does it, I plead you to go hwhy,
our Heavenly Father about this.
I pray this super short teaching was an eye opener to you.
