Early in the life of this blog, I wrote an article (Can We Film The Holy Spirit?), about an upcoming film that made the whopping claim that it was going to prove the existence of the Holy Spirit. I had seen film maker, Darren Wilson’s first three films and, well… I know the Holy Spirit is real because he opened my eyes quick smart to the devilish lies contained in the first three films, and the heresy promoted by the NAR (New Apostolic Reformation) superstars such as Bill Johnson and many others featured in these films.
Below is an excellent review of the fourth film by Darren Wilson of the charismatic NAR cult, by Baptist Pastor Gabriel Hughes. I am so grateful to Pastor Hughes for his efforts in writing this. Having watched the film three times, I wholeheartedly agree with his critique and warnings. I had not yet written my own review, and now have no need to!
The NAR cult is growing rapidly around the world, and has spread its poison into many, many other denominations and churches. It is a huge money-making machine, peddling deadly poison in the form of false teaching, false prophecy, new age occult teachings and a counterfeit ‘holy spirit’ which is in fact, demonic in origin.
He shared prophesy from the Old Testament concerning Jesus Christ, the Son of God put to death by lawless men, and rose again from the grave. This was preordained by God, but that did not absolve the guilty of their sin. Peter’s hearers were “cut to the heart” and asked the apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” To which Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
I wish I could say that filmmaker Darren Wilson and company had at least this much understanding of what it means to present the gospel when they made their movie, The Holy Ghost. But they do not show any hint of knowing, even at a basic level, what the gospel is or even who the Holy Spirit is. This documentary is a travesty that reduces the Spirit of God to sidewalk parlor tricks, salvation to magic words, and evangelism to guitar songs no one knows or understands.
If you don’t read anything else of the review that follows, just know that the Wanderlust produced documentary entitled The Holy Ghost is heresy. It is a false gospel (actually, it’s no gospel at all) that will lead a person to hell. It will not lead anyone to salvation in Christ. If the Holy Spirit does indeed save a person who watches this documentary, it is in spite of it, not because of it.
