Is Ghost Hunting a Dangerous Game or a Serious Ministry to be Done? believe Blogging should be informative, then entertaining. To talk without real meaning does no one any good,”Give a man a fish and you fill his stomach for a day but teach a man to fish and HE can fill his stomach with food every day.”

What’s funny in almost ALL evidence presented to prove the supernatural is the array of skeptics that line up to DISPROVE the proof just as they do to the bible. 
But I must honestly say that every attempt I’ve seen on U-tube  FALLS SHORT of proving solid, I know you can imitate what is seen by a fake copy but that proves nothing unless you can prove that THE PEOPLE involved are liars and deliberately faking the evidence. 
That hasn’t been done, so the evidence that has stood the test of scientific scrutiny on this film evidence is still real. Evidence and Proof it seems are fickle things, that is how its perceived is according to the beholders, This is why no one is able to be definitive because no matter who sees the same thing you saw they see it differently or make an excuse that make even less sense than the reality on film!

I thought I would write about this subject since it has always been of interest to me, Ghost Hunting at least the serious versions on T.V and the Movies SEEM fun and scary to the uninitiated and novices on the outside of the “Other Side” business!

I have been in many of the so-called Haunted Places around the U.S. and The World, and they indeed are possessed of spiritual substances of unknown origin, at least on the surface. The is for some reason, we need these Ghost stories to make the places we visit come to life in our hearts and minds, a kind of Romantic interlude from the past, a rush of fearful adrenalin, yes its very real to our fleshly experience but is it all it has pretended to be? 

In some cases, we even convince ourselves of the reality of a Haunting because we what so badly to believe in an afterlife. But I would put forward that TRUTH trumps imagination any day of the week, haunted or not, ghost or no ghost what God says is of greater import than made up stories of men, even actual historical ones! Ghost Hunting: A Biblical Perspective  The Ghost Hunter’s Bible: The Definitive Edition   Having been on that side of the Darkness for a large part of my adult life as a Black Witch, I know full well the “Dangerous side of the Other Side” and all these paranormal shows on television dealing with it are only fueling an interest in “Satan’s deceptive project” called “Ghost Hunting”.  I’M NOT SAYING its fake or hogwash or even uninteresting to study as some do, what I am saying is that MOST of it is merely scratching the surface of a very dangerous world of Demonic Deception and brings us NO closer to the truth of what happens after death. 

A deception so deep and so bold as to cover a realm that ONLY God himself has the right and the honor to rule, this realm of the dead is not only ruled over by God he actually is the only one who controls it completely, so it would be of the utmost importance for us to question him on the subject don’t you think?’t get me wrong, I don’t believe for the most part that anyone involved in “Ghost Hunting” is willingly deceiving people BUT I do know for a fact based on what I’ve witnessed in the Craft and deeper dark secrets of the Occult that no one seems to see the dangers as I do. Those of you who have left the Craft for the Hope and caring of Christ should see it too! 

It is very important to reveal what life is like after death, BUT even more important that we have all the facts available to us, not assumptions, maybe’s or even feel good ideas about death.

First lets define just what we are talking about: is a general term coined in 1915–1920 that designates experiences that lie outside “the range of normal experience or scientific explanation” or that indicates phenomena that are understood to be outside of science’s current ability to explain or measure. Within this realm is Heaven and Hell so it does exist, the problem is not weather or not the Paranormal exists but if we have the PROPER INFORMATION available to explain it to us. Knowledge is power but limited knowledge is limited power, that is why we must strive for pure knowledge on any subject or we risk wasting our lives on a Lie!

Paranormal phenomena are distinct from certain hypothetical entities, such as dark matter and dark energy, insofar as paranormal phenomena are inconsistent with the world as already understood through empirical observation coupled with scientific methodology. 

In other words the world around you has no bearing on the world of the dead and CANNOT be understood by it apart from God’s clear explanation in Scripture revealed only to those who pass his test of Salvation all other attempts result in half truth and shadows of fact. The Paranormal is beyond mortal, flesh and blood understanding and explanation therefore to believe what our mortal logic says is FUNNY at best.

What we don’t know is far more dangerous than what we think we know about it, so there is a great need to simply stop and search out the truth found ONLY in scripture about the TRUE nature of the Spirit world and those who inhabit it. What if ALL of what Ghost Hunters believe about what they are doing is only PARTLY right, what if all the talk about the dead revisiting the areas of their earthly living is NOT TRUE AT ALL! find the ignorance out there knowing both what I’ve experienced and what God’s word has revealed plainly to me to be beyond the pail of stupidity, it is not worth the silly “shadow figures” and “apparitions” appearing on film to be SO WRONG and put you and your families lives in such danger. These beings appearing as human spirits are VERY dangerous, and VERY powerful once you expose them to your life. They WILL follow you, taunt you and your families forever UNLESS you realize who they really are and deal them the blow of death by “Spiritual Warfare”!

So what’s haunting these areas or houses if the Ghosts of people are not really there? Bible NOWHERE teaches us that we stay or visit our old life as a spirit or Ghost (UNLESS God brings us back from a near death experience or as Christ we are raised from the dead, in those cases we came back to our Bodies not as haunting spirits.) these are the only exceptions to the rule of death, ONCE DEAD the body is useless having served its purpose and the Soul and Spirit move on to their eternal destiny.
Heb 9:27  
“And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this {NOT Haunting a house but} the judgment:”
Gen 25:8 
“He died in a good old age, an old man – So God had promised him. His death was his discharge from the burdens of his age {His Times}: it was also the crown of the glory of his old age. He was full of years – A good man, though he should not die old, dies full of days, satisfied with living here, and longing to live in a better place. 
And was gathered to his people – His body was gathered to the congregation of the dead,{The Physical Grave} and his soul {Contained within his spirit} to the congregation of the blessed.{ Then it was “Abraham’s Bosom” but after Jesus was raised from the dead it became Heaven or Hell that we were destined to be. gathers us to our people. Those that are our people while we live, whether the people of God, or the children of this world, to them death will gather us.
The question then is WHERE are our people in death? 

Is There Death After Life? 

 Most of what people believe about Death has been filtered by the circumstances of our childhood, old wives tales, or just very bad doctrines taught by well meaning churches who THOUGHT that was what God said in the bible without proper “Dividing of the truth.”

What the Bible Reveals About Heaven 

Death Passed Upon All Men 

Passed from Death unto Life

  Luk 20:35-36“But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world {Where I’m From..Heaven.}, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto the angels {NOT become angels but are equal before God.}; and are the children of God, being the children of the resurrection.”
ONCE in heaven why in the world of stupidity would anyone what to come back and “Haunt” their old life on earth?
 Joh 14:2 
“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. “
Much deception has resulted from mishandling this verse, What are these “Mansions” Christ speaks of here? Is Jesus really building a building for us to live in or is there something deeper to learned from here?
Heb 11:16 
“But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city {The New Jerusalem}. “ which is it, is God building a single Mansion for us all in heaven or is he building a City filled with Mansions?
Joh 2:19 
“Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple {Of my Body}, and in three days I will raise it up.
1Co 3:16-17  
“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?   If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

So it would seem we have positive proof that our physical bodies are “Buildings” containing greater “Buildings” called “The Temple of God” which can be raised up when we die. 
Which begs the greater question, if our Mansions are being built where is the process being done?

2Co 6:16-18  
“And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.  
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. process in Christians is called sanctification or separation from the world, but in the case of the worldly person where’s house being built? Well let’s just say its of “Wood, Hay and stubble”, things that will burn away leaving only our naked soul before God at the last judgment. 
2Co 5:10  
“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.

1Co 3:12-15  
“Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;  Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.

Notice that WE do the building with the materials God provides or those that Sinful living provides depending on our choices in life, our soul and spirit are the “Guts” of that “Mansion” to live in heaven or to live in Hell for eternity. We are responsible NOW in this life, for our outcome after death in the judgment, good or bad we are now building a mansion with the help of Jesus through the process of separation. it make the least bit of common sense to you to waste an eternity of happiness and bliss in heaven hanging around this darkness spooking people and never really being able to communicate with those who you love without the help of electromagnetic tools? 

After all who do we think we are? 

The arrogance of man is simply appalling, do we actually believe that WE can control a realm ONLY God is in charge of?

The obvious answer is NO!!! 
When I or you do die we will INSTANTLY walk or float from this existence into the next without delay, whether or not that’s good for you is your choice NOW so don’t wait to decide. You will not have time to be Haunting your former life, you will be instantly standing before your judgment for a life lived for or against The Lordship of Jesus in your life. 

The Other Side of Death: What the Bible Teaches About Heaven and Hell 

What the Bible Reveals About Heaven 

Faith Lessons on the Death and Resurrection of the Messiah (Home DVD Vol. 4) Home Pack/Bible Study Guides: The Bible’s Timeless Call to Impact Culture 

Job 16:22  
“Go – To the state and place of the dead, whence men cannot return to this life
The meaning is, my death hastens, and therefore I earnestly desire that the cause depending, between me and my friends, may be determined, that if I be guilty of these things, I may bear the shame of it before all men, and if I be innocent, that I may see my own integrity, and the credit of religion, (which suffers upon this occasion) vindicated. How very certainly, and how very shortly are we likewise to go this journey.
1Co 2:11
 “For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? 
even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. “
 This realm is unknown to us for good reason, look how we’ve screwed up what little we do know about it? Sin has tainted our viewpoint of everything we once completely understood before the fall, death was a NEW thing to Adam and Eve, they didn’t know what it was or even why it happened, so its not hard to understand why we have come to wrong conclusions concerning Death and Dieing!

1Co 15:54“So when this corruptible {Physical Body} shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal {Body} shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.”
How do you know where you’ll go when you die? If you don’t even understand why your on earth in the first place, beyond the silly concepts of evolution and humanism.

Are we more than the sum of our parts as God says we are, or are we simply the by products of so much primordial soup in the beginning of time?

Eph 5:5  
“For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. “

Why is this true, why can’t just anyone get into heaven? Well would you like to live forever next to a ‘sex offender” or a “Murderer” in heaven as you may have had to do here on earth? God’s standards are much higher than ours, thank God for small favors. 

O.K. so just what are the real experiences that many of us, including me have had concerning Ghosts and shadows that we chase to find out the truth about the afterlife? Who are we dealing with in reality if they are not former people we knew or read about in the history books? 

Are we being duped into a belief system about Ghosts and Spirit’s based upon our emotional attachments to dead loved ones and old wives tales passed down religiously for decades. Why do we fall for these frauds so easily? Are we that gullible? 

 2Co 11:13-15  
“For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.   Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.” proves that righteous things {Our saved loved ones, Those who have died for Christ in the past, Christian Doctrine, just about anything sacred} CAN BE IMITATED, they can be copied and presented as the true and real, they can deceive even those who believe in God. So we must ask the question here what about “Ghosts” and the Paranormal in General are we seeing people we knew, knowledge we get from God or are we witnessing what Paul is warning of?

We live in a time when holiday’s we celebrate are more Sacrilegious than faithful, The Christmas Tree and it’s entrapment’s, Easter and the it’s entrapment’s are considered by the world as supporting a Christian religion, how stupid that is when NONE OF THAT STUFF has any resemblance to the true Christian Faith whatsoever, its based in TOTAL PAGANISM so how does it favor God at all, let alone pure Christian Faith? 

The world loves to pervert our faith WITH OUR HELP and this is a great example of just that, this subject is God’s subject not the world’s but we allow them to define what happens at death, what’s wrong with this picture?

This is happening right under the noses of real believers all the time as is the deceptions of Talking to the dead and seeking advice from dead saints.  Both are FORBIDDEN by God which is ignored completely by the Churches supporting these “illegal prayers” that mock the reality of true prayer to God alone.  

Instead in order to befriend the person involved we wrongly think we must absorb the false belief, this is what happened in the 4th century A.D. when Constantine accepted the Faith of Jesus and stopped Rome’s persecution of Christians ALONG with bringing in all the PAGAN garbage into the state church, nice trade off huh?

Satan is the greatest of the great when it comes to “Hidden Agendas”, slight of hand shadowplay were invented by him to hide behind, he uses a sacred cover to shield our investigation of the truth, because it make seeking answers look like Hating others.

Telling the Truth is not Hate Speech! 

For more information on this read my pages:

From what I personally have seen and heard with my own life experience I would have to say the latter is true, because no matter how much we find out concerning the paranormal there’s ALWAYS more in the shadows we can’t know ACCORDING TO THEM!  

2Co 11:3-4
 “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him. “
Notice, that in Christ is SIMPLICITY but with Satan there is confusion, shadow and subtlety without end, nothing that Satan does or deceives us into is ever easy to understand or accomplish. 
The Christian faith APART from the religious mess that man has corrupted it with is simple to understand, easy to accomplish and open to examination for all but the religion is shadowed with deep holes of misunderstanding.
The real purpose of writing this is to advance an idea, an idea of adding a biblical perspective to the “Hunt” taking it away from the shadows of uncertainty. 

There is no reason to hunt what you don’t understand if the scriptures reveal clearly what your dealing with and just HOW TO CAST IT OUT. That seems to be the big hold up in most paranormal shows, they just want to REVEAL WHAT’S THERE but their definitions are limited to the limited knowledge of the afterlife. 

We have defined the afterlife by old wives tales, false stories, and incomplete experiences and have ended up with half the real story.

What are we dealing with? 
DEMONS!, how do we deal with demons? CAST THEM OUT we don’t talk about their false characters, their impersonations of humans long dead, we don’t allow them to play “poltergeist”{Angry Spirit} with the truth. Sometimes I watch these shows and ask myself what I would do in their place, well for one thing, in all that past life history which is great do they once study the true history book- the Bible, NEVER!

O.K. first let’s do our homework on Ghost Hunting and its tools: we must understand what they use to understand the why’s and how’s of Ghost Hunting. If you as a believer are serious about this field of investigation then you need to know what God knows and what to use to do it safely.

A Short History of Ghost Hunting
Ghosts, haunting and tales of strange events go well back into ancient history.

More recently though there is a rich and documented history of ghost hunting occurring in New York around 1848 that started the spiritualist movement which continued into late 1930’s. 

These individuals along with many others played a large part in this movement albeit sometimes at opposite ends of the spectrum. 
(Either in their empathy with lost souls or their skepticism in such matters). 
More detailed information is available today on the internet or at your local library. 

Those people listed above are in part the reason for the efforts of Harry Price and the start of documented ghost hunting.

In his time, Harry Price was one of the most influential persons involved in ghost hunting. 
Harry uncovered a number of fraudulent photographers that made their money by double exposing photographic plates and then claiming the images were the dead relatives of the people being photographed. 
Harry also went to numerous seances and tried to prove or disprove their validity scientifically with gauges and measures (some instruments were crafted specifically for this purpose) and kept accurate notes and diaries at all times.

Harry Price was most recognized for his work in the Borley Rectory with his ghostly photography and evaluations of this haunted site. 

Harry’s work is still controversial and questioned by some. 
He was however the fore runner of ghost hunters and his work was the start to a more serious look into the proper use of equipment and evaluations to explain the paranormal. good source for more information on the spiritualist movement and the evolution of ghost hunting is a book by

Troy Taylor and the American Ghost Society’s….

– The Ghost Hunter’s Guidebook –
 Ghost Hunter’s Guidebook: The Essential Guide to Investigating Ghosts & Hauntings

Published by Whitechapel Productions Press. 


This book is NOT a Christian out-look on Ghost Hunting BUT it is a very good look at the present state of it, so read it with that in mind! 

Now what about the tools of the trade?

Most of the equipment is harmless, but I seriously question the “Spirit Boxes” for allowing the dead to talk to you as this is expressly forbidden in the scriptures for good reason, if you allow a demon to speak you’ll get ONE THING a lie and the longer they talk the bigger the lie gets so this box is a tool that will not help you but harm you. 

Divining rods and spirit boards do far to much to give the advantage to the enemy your trying to CAST out, you are to speak in Authority against the manifestation, not allow it a doorway to make things worse and that’s just what the Ouija does:

In Isaiah 8:19-20,

God says this: 
“When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living? …If they do not speak according to this word, they have no light…” E.V.P. ( Electronic Voice Phenomenon) should only be used with great caution never to have conversation with the dead and never to be believed at face value, never base an investigation on this tool it only proves something is there not that what it says is true, remember demons only speak one language- The Lie, so nothing they tell you except under the Authority and power of God is true so make sure you ask your questions in the form of a command to tell only the truth in the name of Jesus.

I believe that we should do FAR more than hunt for Ghosts, we should be helping in a more permanent lasting way, by casting out impersonating demons that falsely take our loved ones identities

Ghost Hunting Equipment Check List

The Key is a vast knowledge of Demons and every creature invented in Satan’s evil mind so that you are never caught off guard in any situation in your personal life or your “Hunters” life.

Knowing how to use “Spiritual Warfare” against the devils is paramount to real success, without a clean personal life free of worldly weights and a renewed mind filled with knowledge of your enemy and a healthy fear of your failure. Remember I said “HEALTHY FEAR” not FEAR for the sake of Fear, they will and should fear the prepared hunter who knows who they are with and uses the authority of God as a sword. The devil’s ALL fear Jesus and if we walk and talk just like”him” they can’t tell the difference, when we command in his authority, Demons in whatever form they take will flee.
Since Ghosts are in reality Demons that are impersonating those who have died, adults and children with whom they have had intimate physiological and or soulful connections, knowing the history of the person they are pretending to be is helpful only in a surface way.

What is really important is to know why they were involved with those people, get your eyes off 
the imitation before you and on what caused the devils to be attached with them?
How did they get there in the first place, why this house?
 Is it a family-line demon, attached to a particular family sin?
Is it a demon connected to the persons property or household possessions from another family line curse?
What curse brought the devil there and can it be broken once and for all, research every entrance that could hold the key to casting it out? 

Your real bread and butter so to speak is in your research team looking for the facts behind the haunting, the hunting is the fun part but its not the most important part, that comes when you can claim the person or the property FREE in Christ’s name!

Major Spiritual Warfare Principles: Biblical Do’s and Don’ts of Warfare Spiritual warfare book separating bible-based principles from harmful non-biblical spiritual warfare teachings

I thought after reading this great Book on Spiritual Warfare DONE the right way I would share it with everyone as it is a FREE online book found here: 

-Origins of the Erroneous Warfare and Deliverance Teachings

-Nature of False Doctrine and False Teachings

-Indirect confrontation Vs direct confrontation

-The Sovereignty of God and His Set-up of Spiritual Laws
This book could save you avoidable heartache in your life, in the lives of your loved ones, or in your ministry. It is a companion to the book on Christian deliverance, titled Major Christian Deliverance Principles: Keys for Self-deliverance and Ministry.
The deliverance book addresses major principles on Christian deliverance while this one addresses major principles on Christian spiritual warfare. The two books share Chapter 1 while beyond that they have totally different content altogether.
You will learn on spiritual warfare the do’s and don’ts, what works and what doesn’t, what’s biblical and what’s not, what brings victory and what invites attacks.
By the end of the book you’ll be able to distinguish between the two worlds of biblical truth and misinterpretation or error on Christian spiritual warfare teachings. The book cautions on the potential dangers, consequences of applying erroneous teachings, and points to what bible based spiritual warfare principles are. 
The book is empowering on major biblical principles on spiritual warfare. It is also valuable in avoiding the spiritual attacks that are caused by applying erroneous teachings on spiritual warfare. It’s better learning through the easier way of understanding than through an avoidable shipwreck or crisis that enforces a change of perspective – like some of us once faced.
You will be amazed at the findings as we test the spirit and truth from each of the two worlds of spiritual warfare principles. Needless to say that the fruits or consequences from each version of teachings speak for themselves.
The biblical interpretation of spiritual warfare principles endorsed by this book are supported by the entire 2000 year church history -from Christ’s time up to now.
On the other hand, the new end-time spiritual warfare teachings that advocate for direct confrontation with Satan emerged in the 1980s. They are mainly prescribed by two or three denominations among our various evangelical branches. 
Evangelicals include Charismatics, Baptists, Pentecostals, Methodists, AME, Presbyterians, Assemblies of God, Lutherans, and so on, including most non-denominations. Our uniting beliefs include emphasis on spiritual rebirth through accepting and following Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and in upholding the inerrancy of the bible. 
Together we constitute the body of Christ, the church of our Lord that transcends denominational and geographical boundaries.
Origins of the Erroneous Warfare and Deliverance Teachings
Beginning in the 1980s we, in some evangelical circles, have followed matters we have called spiritual warfare teachings with little or no biblical scrutiny. C. Peter Wagner is considered among the chief architects of the spiritual warfare doctrine of direct confrontation with evil spirits.
The doctrine of direct confrontation advocates for making verbal proclamations against Satan and his fellow fallen angels (demons) in thin air, binding them up in the spirit realm, in geographical territories, and so on. 
Chapter 4: True Biblical Spiritual Warfare = Indirect Confrontation explains why this is nowhere in the bible. It shows the formula the bible gives: God’s role = direct confrontation, and our role = indirect confrontation
Wagner went on to establish the Wagner Leadership Institute where Strategic Level Spiritual Warfare (SLSW) was taught as a major warfare strategy of winning territorial spiritual warfare against spiritual principalities.
Scriptures have been taken out of context, given new meaning and the new spiritual warfare teachings became what we have today – among some of our fellow believers.
The zeal and sincerity for God’s kingdom is not being disputed among advocates of teachings that misinterpret scripture. Our main concern is the fact that the body of Christ cannot afford erroneous and harmful teachings. As watchmen and women we have a mandate to reveal erroneous and harmful teachings circulating in the body of Christ.
The new movement in the eyes of its advocates began to be known as the “Third Wave,” or “Signs and Wonders” movement. They called it a new move of the Holy Spirit in the body of Christ. Says Dr. Wagner, “The first wave was known as the Pentecostal movement, (p.16) the second, the Charismatics (p.17), and now “I see the Third Wave distinct from, but at the same time similar to the first and second waves.”(p.18) C. Peter Wagner, The Third Wave of the Holy Spirit: Encountering the Power of Signs and Wonders Today
(Note that due partly to heavy criticism from fellow evangelicals this book is out of print. For any reference purposes used copies are available at online stores like and
The Third Wave movement not only introduced the new spiritual warfare teachings, it also emphasized that baptism in the Holy Spirit is verified through speaking in tongues. No tongues no baptism, no heaven, even if you were Billy Graham. Although speaking in tongues re-emerged in the early 1900s it received a new association by the Third Wavers in the late 1900s.
Says Dr. Wagner, “The Third Wave is a new moving of the Holy Spirit among evangelicals who for one reason or another have chosen not to identify with either the Pentecostals or the Charismatics. Its roots go back a little further but I see it as mainly a movement beginning in the 1980’s and gathering momentum through the closing years of the 20th century. 
“I see,” says Wagner, “the Third Wave as distinct from, but at the same time, very similar to the first and second waves. They have to be similar because it is the same Spirit of God who is doing the work.
The major variation comes in the understanding of the meaning of “Baptism in the Holy Spirit” and the role of tongues in authenticating this. I myself, for example, would rather not have people call me a Charismatic, I do not consider myself a Charismatic, I am simply an Evangelical Congregationalist who is open to the Holy Spirit working through me and my church in any way He chooses,” C. Peter Wagner, cited by John F. MacArthur Jr in his book Charismatic Chaos.
Wagner disassociates himself from being a Charismatic or Pentecostal not primarily because of any doctrinal distinction, but primarily because of the stigma attached to such names (during the 1980s).
But not only did Wagner’s teachings gain prominence among our Charismatic and Pentecostal evangelical churches we also became the major crusaders of his teachings. Without the support of Charismatics and Pentecostals Wagner and other pioneers of the non-biblical spiritual warfare teachings would have largely gone unnoticed.
Sincere believers of high prominence endorsed the non-biblical spiritual warfare and what followed is what we have today. The deception flood of the erroneous spiritual warfare teachings got so high that many of us easily found scripture to back up our resolve to directly fight evil spirits.
Believers were zealous in their resolve to directly confront demonic spirits that scripture was easily taken out of context without even realizing it. Some are still zealous in the non-biblical spiritual warfare and deliverance teachings. The consequences among believers of following these teachings have been disturbing and unfortunate.
The mistaken understanding has been that spiritual warfare implies directly confronting Satan and his demonic spirits (fallen angels), making verbal proclamations in thin air against them, binding them up in the spirit world, in geographical territories, and so on. 
This, it has been assumed, was our responsibility according to the bible. Unfortunately the consequences speak for themselves on whether or not the bible supports this belief. This book covers on the potential dangers, consequences and points to the true biblical spiritual warfare we have always followed throughout church history.
True biblical spiritual warfare is what we have held all along before the misinterpretation came in. It maintains that God fights our battles us we seek his intervention rather than confronting Satan ourselves. Our role in dealing with evil spirits in the spirit realm is indirect in nature, while God’s role is direct. The only exception is when casting out evil spirits out of people. The book outlines all these areas. 
Some changes towards biblical spiritual warfare and deliverance have been occurring as we have been learning from these unfortunate experiences. However we still have some way to go as fundamentalist evangelicals. 
This book, among others, facilitates our return to biblical principles of spiritual warfare. Without a true understanding we will continue facing avoidable consequences that our mistaken spiritual warfare teachings invite.
Nature of False Doctrine and False Teachings
False doctrine in the body of Christ refers to teachings with biblical half-truths containing errors that misinterpret the scripture. Presence of false doctrine does not imply a particular church or denomination is a cult.
Far from it. A cult in its broadest meaning represents groups that worship or give reverence to a deity other than God, Father of Jesus Christ and deny the basic doctrines of the Christian faith.
False doctrine and cults can therefore refer to two separate matters, even though cults by their nature follow false doctrine. 
As Chapter 1 shows, church history has shown that every church body has had some level of error uncovered at some point or another. That error constituted false doctrine but did not imply that believers who fell for it were part of a cult.
This book is therefore, not about exposing cults but about false doctrines in the body of Christ. It is primarily about revealing and correcting one area of false doctrines: on spiritual warfare and deliverance principles.
The book is also not about attacking or condemning any individual, church or denomination in body of Christ. It is about pointing out erroneous and harmful teachings that pose major hindrances to believers and ultimately the entire body of Christ.
The book uncovers the errors on spiritual warfare and deliverance principles that have entered the body of Christ trapping many sincere believers who practice them. The biblical truths contained in this book facilitate their freedom from all consequences of the false doctrines on spiritual warfare teachings.
False doctrines or false teachings at their lowest level are a hindrance to true Christian living. At their worst level they are severely destructive to a believer spiritually, emotionally, socially, materially, or even physically.
For example, the false doctrines on slavery and gender biases brought psycho-social humiliation of inferiority complexes and economic deprivation on discriminated groups. Although other religions and cultures still embrace primitive gender biases our focus here is where scripture is misinterpreted in order to justify false beliefs.
One of our most recent false beliefs in the body of Christ are on spiritual warfare and deliverance teachings. This book and its companion on deliverance, titled Major Christian Deliverance Principles:
Keys for Self-deliverance and Ministry, reveal how and why the spiritual warfare and Christian deliverance errors have among the worst consequences among false doctrines currently circulating in the body of Christ. Thankfully there is a way out and there are actually bible based principles that bring freedom.
Indirect confrontation Vs direct confrontation
The vicious cycle of strange problem after another befalls many sincere, heaven destined believers who assume scripture authorizes us to fight Satan ourselves. Thankfully there is a solution to whatever befalls anyone trapped in this false doctrine. It is in ceasing the practice of the assumed spiritual warfare and fighting the enemy the way scripture authorizes us to. This is through indirect confrontation.
Indirect confrontation is what scripture prescribes for us. Chapter 4, “True Spiritual Warfare = Indirect Confrontation,” shows how God has made indirect confrontation as our only spiritual warfare. Indirect confrontation implies that we do not fight with Satan and his evil forces by approaching them directly. We confront them by applying indirect means and ways that God has established for us. 
Applying and fulfilling our required indirect roles secures our standing before God and allows him to directly act on our behalf. Attacks from Satan against us become God’s battles as we obey and fulfill the roles required of us. In this spiritual battle God’s role is direct in nature as he is able to directly deal with the spiritual forces unseen to our human eyes.
God through his heavenly government that has the authority and access to the kingdom of hell is able to directly deal with the enemy and his works. Indirect confrontation is how we can petition God in the name of Jesus to fight on our behalf over our lives or the lives of others. 
Indirect confrontation seems simple yet it has the most powerful deliverance ministry tools given to us. Our weapons of warfare, which from a correct scriptural interpretation are indirect in nature, are the most powerful weapons God has entrusted us with. Scripture says they are more powerful than human weapons, able to devastate the activities of Satan on earth.
May we effectively use them in setting captives free and practicing true deliverance ministry.
The Sovereignty of God and His Set-up of Spiritual Laws
Our God is almighty, all sovereign. This makes him in charge of everything, including over Satan. He thus has not left his throne to Satan to do whatever he pleases. 
Satan operates within the boundaries that God allows and has set-up as spiritual laws. Outside these boundaries he has NO means, authority, nor power to enforce his wishes.
That is why he uses traps to bring people into his boundaries -so that he can attack them. Within his boundaries he gains legal access to attack in whatever way he has access to –spiritually, socially, materially, physically, etc. 
The methods he uses to gain legal access to people include deception, sin and ignorance. The false teachings on spiritual warfare and deliverance are therefore among his doorways. Other traps he uses among believers include love of money, pursuit of worldly pleasures, power, fame, knowledge, etc.
Deliverance comes when people understand that direct confrontation with Satan takes us into his forbidden territory. Being outside the boundary brought by the assumed spiritual warfare ends his legal access to an individual or ministry. 
It closes the door he used to hinder a person’s life.
God can still permit Satan to operate outside his boundary, e.g. in the case of Job. However, Satan had to first obtain permission from God because all avenues of legal access were closed. The same applies to all believers who walk in truth and are under the righteousness of Christ.
Satan can only gain entry into our lives only after getting permission from God.
God giving Satan permission is an exception rather than a rule. God does not delight in our affliction, especially in areas that Satan has no legal entry. 
The ultimate outcome when God gives Satan permission always brings victory rather than defeat for the believer and for God’s kingdom. 
We know how Job ended up with more than he lost. Similarly, our Lord Jesus got the greatest victory for all humanity after being innocently oppressed and killed by Satan. God ultimately upholds his faithfulness and righteousness.
