"War on the Saints"|
I wanted to make a few comments on this book and since she is dealing a lot with deliverance and demonic activity in the believers life, I thought I would put it here with the occult information. Since the occult is an area that people definitely need to go through deliverance especially if they have been heavily involved. It may not be the best spot but we don't have a book review section.
The book deals with a lot of demonic activity in the believers life. While reading this book I kept thinking where is she getting all this information? Even though it sounded logical she did not give scriptural references to back up what she was stating.
With that said; I am not disputing it, but just wondered what was taking place. Its probable it came from personal experience, but she did not state this.
Anyway one portion that leaped out of the book and I found interesting was what takes place during a true God ordained revival. This gal states that whenever God moves in a true revival and the Spirit of God is manifested in healing, deliverance, repentance, that there was always fanaticism that would come and take over, and quench the move of the Spirit.
Demonic activity would start manifesting in individuals and people would come with strange manifestations that would distract from what God was doing and it would put a damper on the meetings causing confusion and chaos.
In some meetings to this day there is strange behavior that manifests on a regular basis, people state that this is the power of God driving them to do it. Most think this is normal Christianity and they welcome it in their meetings.
I have to admit this Sister in Christ made some very good points concerning Christians and the powers of darkness influencing their thoughts and the way they carry themselves. Another area of demonic activity is the area of legalism. She stated; that a person could come out of one form of legalism and go right into another form of legalism and would find justification in their actions, even though they were still being deceived by the powers of darkness. She made a pretty good argument concerning all forms of legalism.
Anyway I found there was a huge amount of information that was there to digest concerning demonic influences coming against Christians, and the daily warfare that takes place in a believers life. It does take place, Paul and others give a certain amount of information involving the Christians warfare with the powers of darkness.
With that said, I could not help but wonder, where is she getting all this information concerning demons and what they were doing?, it sure sounded reasonable while reading the book, but; Was she making observations from past revivals? How much is really demonic activity and how much is just a show of the flesh with someone wanting to appear spiritual?
