Day of the Dead

In homes, at graves or in the schools of today

not God, but tradition and culture leads way

Holiness is out,  necromancy is  in

totally  deceived —  families gather in sin

They build altars to honor relatives now dead

using skulls, favorite drinks, fruits  and baked bread

Candles are lit and dear photos of old

are lovingly viewed  as sweet memories  are told

So innocent it seems, these gatherings to commune 

with loved ones long past, from this life now  marooned 

But this practice is not harmless, it’s  insidious and evil  

for  it’s not loved ones that are reached but trecherous devils.

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 King James Version

10 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.

11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

(necromancer– The practice of supposedly communicating with the spirits of the dead, One who inquires of the dead.)
