Ghost Army

During World War II, there was an Army Unit called the Ghost Army. They were officially known as the 23rd Headquarters special forces. They stayed virtually unknown until forty years after World War II was over. In 2013, PBS did a documentary on their efforts for the Allied forces. This unit of 1100 men who were made up of artists, actors, engineers, architects, and creative thinkers. The unit would stage fake battlefields and use large speakers to confusion the enemy. Their efforts would detour the German forces away from large Allied forces combative units. Their whole goal was to keep the enemy guessing and deceived from actual fighting forces.

The enemy of our souls has for centuries used tactics of deception towards the body of Christ. He has convinced many in the Body of Christ that his power is great. He has used these tactics to deceive the Saints from walking in the truth and power of the Gospel. It is getting worse and worse within our world today and believers need to be alert more than ever.

Ephesians 6:12King James Version (KJV)
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

2 Timothy 3:13
“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”

1 Timothy 4:1
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;”

How to overcome the Ghost Army:

1. Prayer: Keeping a life of continual prayer is very effective against the enemy.  If your spirit is in constant contact with the spirit of God, then the enemy can not deceive you.
2. Read His word: The bible is the road map and encyclopedia to the truth for the world. Stay engulfed into the word of God.
3. Stay Connected: Believers need believers in order to help fight off the enemy together.
4. Gift of Discernment: The bible speaks about the gift of discernment and how it is used to tell the difference from good and evil. It is important that we tap into that gift each time we encounter attacks from the Ghost Army.
5. Stay Alert: The world is becoming a more hostile place. We have to pay attention to the things that are around us. The coming antichrist will not come under the guise of socialism or Islamic dominance; he will come to the world under the premise of democracy. We have to stay alert no matter what.
