In 12 Spirits Seducing the Church, Darrell McMAnus unmasks twelve destructive demons that are operating in our churches and in our homes today. This crucial information has been revealed by the Holy Spirit to Darrell over his forty-plus years of ministry as a pastor and evangelist. He has seen these destructive forces at work in both the family unit and in the corporate chuch setting and wants others to be aware of them too.
But the [Holy] Spirit distinctly and expressly declares that in latter times some will turn away from the faith, giving attention to deluding and seducing spirits and doctrines that demons teach. (1 Timothy 4:1 AMP)We live in a day in which great deception has crept into the church. In some congregations, it is no longer popular to use the word sin. The cross has been removed from some churches because it is offensive. Many churches no longer submit to any type of spiritual authority. Lawlessness seems to permeate the very atmosphere in which we live. Undercurrents of rebellion have successfully wound their way into the foundational fabric of seemingly successful ministries and churches. Many of our churches and ministries are sitting on a proverbial time bomb.In this timely and important book, Darrell McManus identifies and exposes the twelve seducing spirits that have been sent by Satan to target and destroy anointed homes, churches, and ministries. As Christians, unless we are able to identify and understand these spirits, we will not be able to drive them out of our houses of worship. First Timothy 4:6 says that anyone who is willing to deal with seducing spirits is considered to be a "worthy steward and a good minister of Jesus Christ."These demonic spirits are dangerous and destructive. They do their master's work, and they are very good at it. It is up to us, as believers, to be on guard against them so that we do not fall into sin and corruption and, thus, bring dishonor to the Lord.
With a ministry track record spanning over forty years, Darrell McManus has learned a thing or two about kingdom living. He has served as youth pastor, assistant pastor, and senior pastor, and he now travels as a full-time evangelist. Darrell started ministering as a fifteen-year-old-boy in nursing homes, door to door, and any other avenue the Lord opened. While at Lee College in Cleveland, Tennessee, he answered the call to preach. In 1981, Darrell graduated from Southern Bible College in Houston and entered the full time ministry. With a ministry spanning nearly forty years, Darrell has served in various offices of ministry. From 1998 to 2012, Darrell led a successful pastorate. During this time, Darrell had an epiphany on more than one occasion; each apparition was extraordinary in its nature. As a result of these encounters, a paradigm shift emerged in the way he now views God, especially the Father, His throne, and our access to His throne. After this period of time, Darrell shut himself into his office for a year on a daily basis, and prayed seven to nine hours a day in the Holy Spirit (tongues). In 2012, the Lord moved Darrell to go to the nations full time starting fires of revival. The last few years, God has given people new hearts, new ear drums, and blood transfusions. People have also been healed of paralysis, cancer, sugar diabetes, deafness, blindness, as well as growths and tumors of all types completely disappearing. The lame have walked, and those with demons have been set free. In March 2013, God sovereignly released a fresh anointing whereby God's Holy Ghost fire and creative miracles of healing began to be released on Darrell's ministry on a consistent basis. Such an anointing is drawing many to accept Christ as their savior and is truly bringing an awakening to the United States of America. Darrell holds a weekly school of ministry in his hometown of Conroe, Texas.
