The Lord Jesus Christ prophetically warned in Matthew 24of a time of global deception and degeneration that would occur before His return. Along with today’s explosive rise of geopolitical violence has come a floodtide of abusive spirituality in the forms of cultism and aberrant churches. The days Christ foretold are now upon us.

Spiritwatch Ministries is a response to His command to “take heed that no man deceive you.”  Deception must be countered by discernment, the careful examination of claims and practice to determine their truth – or their error. The ministry provides balanced insight and response to the many forms of deceptive cultism in our fallen world as well as practical and personal assistance from an Evangelical Christian perspective. 

Spiritwatch Ministries seeks to aid those struggling with the shadows of abusive spirituality and extremism that have fallen upon their lives and have helped thousands for over 23 years around the world. Where there is life, we believe, there is always hope.

“Great speaking with you.  Thank you for spending so much time with me .. I am very much interested in learning more about your ministry and the specialized work you do.

I am so far very impressed by your diligence, passion and all that you do to help individuals and families recover. 

We would love to profile you on our show, especially in context with a family or an individual in need.”

“I got a bunch of stuff from you today–thanks. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your ministry on line. You mentioned that you were not a pastor yet but were hoping to someday.

Well, you are serving me and probably a host of other people without the official title of minister; however, you are truly putting Matthew 10:42 into action in the lives of many weary, unhealthy, and sometimes unwanted sheep of the Master’s fold. Many thanks.”
