My husband and I watched the “Holy Ghost” movie over the weekend. When I agreed to review it I had absolutely no idea what to expect but I can say I was pleasantly surprised to watch the featured men interact with and minister to strangers they encountered as they followed the direction of the Holy Spirit.
In addition to footage of various team members speaking to and praying for people in various public settings, the film has frequent appearances by well-known people who talk about the Holy Spirit or explain various doctrinal differences, etc. I was particularly taken with scenes from a concert featuring Brian Welch and those shot on location in India.
It is simply amazing what God will do when one follows the lead of the Holy Spirit and steps out in boldness. It was so evident how many people need Jesus and how the approach taken by the men in this film was so much more productive than what is often encountered in evangelistic circles. The love of God was so strong that it was almost irresistible. This movie is strong proof that the church needs to go outside its own walls and take Jesus to the streets by showing His love to those who need him.
I am afraid, however, that this film will not be very well received by many Christians because what it documents is outside their experience. I hope I am wrong because the world needs more Christians who will follow the example of those in the movie. A relative watched it with her husband the day it was available online and she told me she wanted to pray for everyone after she saw it. I hope everyone will respond in a similar manner. I know I have been challenged.

ABOUT THE FILM:
Can the Holy Spirit Direct a Movie?
In this fast-paced documentary from the director of the popular films Finger of God, Furious Love, and Father of Lights, Darren Wilson sets out to make a movie that is completely led by the Holy Spirit. No plan, no script, no safety net — just go wherever he feels the Spirit leading him to try and discover the adventure God has for him.
Whether it’s the riches of Monte Carlo, a heavy metal concert, or the oldest city in world, the result is a film that not only challenges and excites, but also reveals a God who is far more alive and active than you ever imagined.
The movie features big names such as Lenny Kravitz, Brian “Head” Welch, Bill Johnson, Michael W. Smith, Todd White, Meredith Andrews, DeVon Franklin, William P. Young, Phil Vischer, and many more!
