Bob’s Corner: God’s Ghostbusters

By on September 29, 2011

I loved Halloween as a boy. I admit it. Ghosts and goblins didn’t scare me in the least. I’d spend countless hours trick-or-treating, gathering Hershey Bars, candy apples, and popcorn balls (remember them?). I went door-to-door with childlike innocence, masquerading as a skeleton, a ghost, or perhaps even donning a rubber Frankenstein mask, and then laughed all the way to the dentist! Good times and painful memories!

My how things have changed. I’m amazed at my naïveté and total ignorance of the dark side. I’ve never seen a Harry Potter movie or an episode of Twilight. I’ve never seen a ghost, a demon, a UFO, a werewolf or a vampire, and fire-breathing dragons are just the ramblings of an overactive imagination.

I was doing just fine sequestered in my own little cradle of ignorance until Tom Horn introduced me to “God’s Ghostbusters.” I took one look at the cover, with Tom and the family hanging out in a ghoulish graveyard and laughed out loud! Where was Tom going with this? Was this a serious book or some kind of adventure into the world of make-believe?

Then I began to read it and I couldn’t put it down. I began to sneak a peek at the Table of Contents to see what spectacular chapter was on deck. Much to my surprise, I discovered that Cowboys and Indians have been replaced by Piercings and Pentagrams. Rebellious teenagers who used to sneak a beer on Saturday night have been replaced by kids who sleep in coffins and drink each other’s blood! They say it’s a sign of affection! Of course, according to the Book of Enoch, you know who the original blood drinkers were, right? The Nephilim!

16 authors have written 19 chapters about a world I hardly recognize. Nita Horn and Donna Howell examine just how much our lives have changed since the dawn of the 20th century. Like the unsuspecting frog, boiling to death in a pot of hot water, Satan has spun a sneaky web of deceit that has lured us into his warped world. The dark side is very real. The fact that there are 200,000 registered witches and 8 million unregistered witches tells me his world is a dangerous place. The Vatican can’t train new priests to perform exorcisms fast enough! There are now 8,000 Satanic cults with 700,000 members. In Italy alone!

As Tom Horn puts it, “If we could see through the veil into this domain, we would find a world alive with good against evil, a place where the ultimate prize is the soul of this generation and where legions war for control of its cities and people.”

This book is no light-hearted fantasy. It’s deadly serious. When you start to read about the Frankenstein legend, or the roots of Count Dracula, perhaps you’ll understand. These creepy, insider accounts will drop the room temperature by 20 degrees! Author, Derek Gilbert, contributes a chapter entitled, “The Blood is the Life.” He writes that vampirism is nothing less than an absolute mockery of the central tenet of the Christian faith: salvation by the shedding of Christ’s blood. Isn’t that just like Satan; polluting everything God designed? The Hollywood transformation of the vampire, from monster to hero, reflects the gradual decay of the Christian faith into an anemic shell of its former self.

God’s Ghostbusters will introduce you to the strange and the supernatural. Gary Stearman’s chapter, Do You Believe in Dragons, explores the identity of Leviathan, the terrifying, fire-breathing creature described in the book of Job. Are these dragons kin to Satan? Were these hideous dragons once beautiful creatures that could fly through the air? Is the Loch Ness monster real? Apparently some people believe it is. In 1987, Operation Deep Scan examined a lake in Scotland with an armada of boats, spending millions of dollars on a high-tech, inch-by-inch search for the legendary creature with glowing eyes!

Doug Woodward explores an unusual subject that may be new to you. “Remote viewing,” a clandestine type of clairvoyance, has been used by the Army, the Navy, and the CIA since 1947, mostly to spy on other governments and their military programs. Woodward introduces us to some of the leaders behind this program, men who saw the Stealth Fighter before it was created, and then discovered Russia’s silent-submarine program. the inspiration for the Sean Connery movie, The Hunt For Red October.

Doug enters forbidden territory exploring channelers, chemical stargates, the MK-Ultra program, Hitler’s Thule Society, HAARP and the Philadelphia Experiment. Even Gene Roddenberry of Star Trek fame had ties to the supernatural. Where did all his strange ideas come from? The other side?

Several years ago J. R. Church wrote a series entitled, The Human Brain: Home of the Soul. Sharon Gilbert has written a fascinating chapter on the brain, the ultimate organic computer that contains over a quadrillion synapses! Your Brain on Virtual Sin is one of the more fascinating chapters in God’s Ghostbusters.

You’ll also get an unexpected bonus. Our friend Terry James had a major heart attack earlier this year. He was rushed to the hospital, where he was brought back to life three times in the ambulance! His near-death experience and personal memories of that event are chronicled in this book. He also makes a major contribution by chronicling the beliefs of all religions with respect to hell and the afterlife. Very useful.

There’s so much more I can’t cover in depth. Did you know that Noah Hutchings was quasi “pen-pals” with David Berkowitz, the Son of Sam killer? He even received a letter from John Hinckley, President Reagan’s would-be assassin. Reagan wasn’t even his first choice. Jimmy Carter was!

No doubt God’s Ghostbusters will leave you totally mesmerized. Tom Horn has an uncanny ability to stay on the cutting edge of new developments, then select the experts to bring us the fascinating details. Read it thoroughly. Just make sure you leave the light on.
