Disturbing Stories of Stolen Destinies, Idolatrous Religions, Occultism, Fallen Angels, Witchcraft and Demonology

Rev. Bob Larson, internationally recognized for his books on Spiritual Warfare, Angelology, and Demonology alerts the reader to the evidence Christians must face; the reality that spiritual warfare is happening throughout the world today.

In his book “Jezebel – Defeating Your #1 Spiritual Enemy” Larson presents Jezebel as a fallen angel taking on the identity and spirit of the despicable Queen, wife of King Ahaz, in the days of the Old Testament prophet Elijah. Beginning with basic history and background during the period in Israel’s history from the Old Testament book of l Kings, Larson details lessons we can learn from some of the significant events that transpired in the nation of Israel, including: the confrontation of Elijah and the prophets of Baal at Mt. Carmel, Naboth’s stolen vineyard and ruthless murder, Jezebel’s arrogance and tyranny, the death of Ahaz, and Jezebel’s dramatic demise.

Larson has a unique approach of using dialog with demon personalities as a process for determining the spiritual strategy to bring about resolution in the exorcism and deliverance process. He equips the reader with guidelines and spiritual weapons to recognize the “Jezebel spirit” as evidenced by abuse, generational curses, blood sacrifice and witchcraft. He goes on to explain steps to help victims break from bondage and move on to freedom and victory, to find peace. He also provides sample narratives for use in exorcism for deliverance.

These stories of stolen destinies, idolatrous religions, occultism, fallen angels, witchcraft and demonology are disturbing. They record actual spiritual battles of individuals documented in Larson’s archives of exorcisms. The nature of Larson’s subject matter of spiritual warfare will be interpreted differently by readers of various backgrounds and traditions.

“Jezebel – Defeating Your #1 Enemy” is a wakeup call for Christians today of the need to recognize the power of spiritual truth when facing supernatural spiritual battle.

An Analysis of Pop Culture, the Occult, and Spiritual Bondage

William Schnoebelen introduces his book “Romancing Death” with a candid look at his experiences in the occult, witchcraft, and vampirism. He openly discusses how he was blinded by the dark and dangerous deceptions of satan, disguised as an angel of light. He details how he became involved in WICCA, witchcraft, and satanism.

Schnoebelen introduces the reader to the phenomenon of the vampire in religion, culture, and history.  He explores contemporary vampire cults, lore, and literature and the myth and reality of vampirism. He looks at how the vampire is portrayed in popular fiction, films, and television.

He goes on to warn how contemporary authors, in this genre of books, are targeting susceptible teens as their readers. He alerts parents, youth leaders, and educators of how over exposure can result in addictive behaviorism during these sensitive formative years.

Other features included in the book are: a synopsis of the “Twilight Saga,” Biblical admonitions, insight in to Mormon doctrine compared to Christian theology, and a guide to Biblical entertainment.  The extensive end-notes provide an excellent resource for further study.

The narrative is filled with examples of individuals delivered from demonic bondage. His testimony of victory over enslavement to the personal addictions to drinking blood and the use of cocaine give additional credibility to Schnoebelen’s conclusions. Readers will be divided in their acceptance of these conclusions. His writing is strong, authoritative, and disturbing.

“Romancing Death: A True Story of Vampirism, Death, the Occult, a guide to Biblical and Deliverance” is a wakeup call to Christians to the dangers of occult, the reality of spiritual and demonic, and the promise of deliverance of these powers.
