I just read about this book God’s Ghost busters that proves to be a rather fascinating read. One of the book reviewers had this to say;

This book gives answers to the questions many Christians may have about vampires, ghosts, aliens, werewolves and creatures of the night. These subjects are examined from a biblical standpoint. It helps the reader to understand that there are forces at work in the world that are just beyond our ability to comprehend and at times to understand. We are engaged in the war of light verses darkness. The book also makes you wonder about things that go "bump in the night". And another said:

As a mother of two girls younger than 10 years old, I have already had to answer questions to them regarding vampires, werewolves and other creatures of darkness as they attend public school and are being told by their friends that these creatures are powerful, sexy, and basically the defacto dream come true for romantic hero figures in our lives... I must be able to provide solid biblical insight into this new occultic craze that seems to be taking the attention of our youth away from wholesome christian family world view concepts and replacing them with the fascination of dark spirits and damned beings. This book has helped me enormously make an informed argument to my kids in terms they understand about the dangers of tampering with witchcraft, spells, spirits, ghosts, vampires etc. Very interesting read, couldn't put it down. PS. Why aren't more Christians writing and talking about what is probably the most relevant spiritual threat facing our kids today?

If you grew up around the same time I did then you definitely know about The Real Ghostbusters. I was an ardent fan of the show which I think used to come on cartoon network. Just in case you have no clue what I am talking about or if you fall under the dreaded ‘xaxa generation’, the show was a cartoon based on some three scientists who lost their research jobs at a University and because of their common curiosity about paranormal activities decide to go into business busting ghosts in the city of new York where they lived.

I remembered this cartoon when we were going through Mathew 14 at The Saturday PM with Pastor Munene (who by the way is just on his own level). The scene is; the disciples are in a storm out in the sea and the boat they are in is nearly capsizing. Having this scene re-enacted on stage actually brought it so clearly. In the middle of this storm the disciples see someone walking on the water and their very first reaction is? You guessed it!

It’s a ghost!!!

I found it interesting that that was the first thing that came to their minds. It’s also proof for all those who claim that ghosts are not real. Well, Jesus wasn’t a ghost... but what if he was?

Is it possible that you have been waiting and praying something and yet when God starts to do something about it you confuse it with something from the enemy? It possibly seems to be too good a deal and you know what they say... if it’s too good, it’s probably not real.

Can you imagine the great miracle Peter would have missed if he continued to think Jesus was a ghost?

If you were a keen follower of The Real Ghost busters you would have noticed that sometimes what they were ‘busting’ were really not ghosts... but ‘monsters’ like the boogieman and what not. These monsters and ghosts were busted by sucking them into a ‘containment unit’ known as the proton pack where they apparently were meant to stay forever (only I am pretty sure there was an episode where a couple of them escaped).

Where am I going with this? Give me a minute; I am just about to spook you out.

1 Peter 5:8 admonishes us to

8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the

devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking

for someone to devour. 9 Resist him, standing firm

in the faith, because you know that your fellow

believers throughout the world are undergoing

the same kind of sufferings.


Luke 10:18 – 19

18He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning

from heaven. 19 I have given you authority to

trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome

all the power of the enemy; nothing will

harm you.


Ephesians 6:12

12For our struggle is not against flesh

and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities,

against the powers of this dark world

and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly



Pastor Jon Courson in one of his prolific bible teachings mentions that spiritual warfare is one of those teachings that most preachers avoid like a plague. That they will preach about anything else from grace,God's goodness, favor love but never this... and he continues to say that this kind of attitude denies Christians the knowledge they need to stand against the forces of darkness.

I challenge you not to fall in this bracket, just like the ghosts and monsters in The Real Ghostbusters terrorised the city of New York, Satan and his demons are roaming around looking for someone to devour and we must not be ignorant. We must not be caught on the defense, we must learn what it means to put on the full armor of God and always be on the offense, ready even before he thinks of coming in our direction.

And you know what the good news is? We already got the victory!!! By the death of Christ on the cross, He won us the victory! Hallelujah! So we are not fighting like those with no hope, we don’t need a 'proton pack', by having Christ within us it means that the power to overcome is in us.

My prayer for you today is that you will begin to have a revelation of these issues. That you will believe that when the bible says you have power, it means YOU HAVE POWER! And NOTHING CAN HARM YOU! Praise Jesus!

''... everything that can be shaken will be shaken, will your faith and foundation stand?'' Hebrews 12:26 - 27
