The recent film “HOLY GHOST” has stirred quite a disturbing buzz within the professing Christian community, especially within liberal, charismatic, word of faith, prosperity and kingdom sects who have been un-discerningly embracing and feverishly promoting it.
After viewing the film carefully and objectively, I discern it to be nothing more than a subtle slight-of-hand charade misrepresenting the true Holy Ghost…a ‘Strong Delusion’ and ‘Another Spirit’. If I were a non-believer and saw this film, I do not think I would find the work of the Holy Spirit so very impressive, and certainly potentially a huge stumbling block for both believer and non-believer alike. Not to mention shows no need for the essentials of repentance, holiness, obedience to Christ or even need of the basic requirement of faith in the afflicted. In other words, the Love of God without Truth of God. They are inseparable, two vital and complimentary sides of the same coin.
The represents ‘easy believism’ repackaged in a “Jesus is cool” rock star worldly guise without bearing one’s cross in sacrifice or submission to the Lordship of Christ. It paints a picture that a Christian can still be a worldly-Lenny Kravitz-cool & sexy with the Holy Spirit as an add-on accessory. All the supposed “healings” are at most fuzzy and vague with no verifiable follow ups. No limbs or sight are restored, no lame are made to walk, no diseases healed, no demons cast out, and certainly no one is being raised from the dead. Not once is the Gospel presented this film. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.
In short, a misrepresentative facsimile promoting a counterfeit Holy Spirit….a spirit of antichrist, that leads people to “Another Jesus” as prophesied in scripture, that without the guide of the one, true Holy Spirit to lead us in all Truth, makes such discernment a virtual impossibility.
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.” ~1 John 4:1
“For 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.” ~2 Corinthians 11:4
“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the Truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.” ~John
