A World of Lies, Part 12: “Mental Illness (CONTINUED)”

.

.

.

In yesterday’s devotional (click here), it was established what the true source of so-called mental illness is: Satan, “the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience” Ephesians 2:2

.

And the remedy for so-called mental illness was also laid out: a complete surrender to God which produces a heart that loves to contemplate the great and precious promises found throughout the Old and New Testaments.

WHAT ABOUT MY CHILD?

But today’s devotional will further explore this great and terrible spiritual malady which has supposedly replaced the Bible’s correct diagnosis…devil harassment and devil possession.

.

And today’s question is, “What can I do as a parent, for my child who is suffering from so-called “mental illness” of one type or another? How in the world am I to deal with this terrible situation?”

SPIRITUAL, NOT PHYSICAL!

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPG

Well, the really Good News is, that mental illness is merely a fabrication of Satan, who is “the god of this world!” 2nd Corinthians 4:4

.

And so, this condition is a spiritual malady, and not physical!

.

This is great news because it means that the child is capable of complete deliverance from this spiritual malady!

BIBLE HAS THE REMEDY

.

Now does it require calling a so-called “Exorcist” to drive out evil spirits?http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Magnifying_glass_on_book_icons

.

Absolutely not!

.

Rather, let’s turn to God’s Word, the Bible for the true remedy.

CHILD WHO WAS POSSESSED AT TIMES

.

When Jesus and His three disciples, Peter, James, and John came down from the http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ebenezer_Newman_Downard_Morning_prayer_1860-61.jpgMount of Transfiguration, He encountered a man whose child was suffering from something similar to epilepsy, or perhaps something similar to autism.

.

Jesus immediately cast out the evil spirit from the boy, after hearing the father’s tearful plea. (see Mark 9:17-29)

.

.

.

.

 

“BY PRAYER AND FASTING”

.

But then, when His disciples  inquired as to why they could not cast out that evil Linda Hazzard - Fasting for the cure of disease - Wikipedia - Public Domainspirit from the child, Jesus explained…“And He said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.” Mark 9:29

.

Now here we have a great revelation from the lips of Jesus our Savior! “This kind can come forth by nothing but prayer and fasting!”

So what does God expect? For the child to fast and pray?

PRAYER AND FASTING BY PARENTS

.

No, but this remedy is primarily for the parents of a demon-harassed child! They are to fast and pray for their child’s deliverance!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ebenezer_Newman_Downard_Morning_prayer_1860-61.jpg

But will going without food somehow conjure up God’s sympathy for such troubled and tormented children?

.

Of course not! God is very willing to help such children who are being harassed by Satan’s host of evil angels!

.

.

.

.

. 

THE TRUE FAST

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Full_Book_of_Isaiah_2006-06-06.jpg

But the fast that God has chosen is found in Isaiah, Chapter 58…“Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?” Isaiah 58:6-8

.

Here is the true fast that produces results with God! And what this above passage is saying concisely, is that God wants His professed people to really get serious about Salvation.

FASTING WHILE STILL LOVING WORLD, WORTHLESS!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Full_Book_of_Isaiah_2006-06-06.jpg

Many people mistakenly believe that if they only go tearfully without a meal or two, they can somehow elicit the help of God, just prior to returning to their world-loving ways.

.

But Isaiah 58 directly condemns all such notions!

.

. 

100% DEVOTION, THE TRUE FAST!

.

No, what God is saying in Isaiah 58, is that He wants His people to love and serve Him with all their heart, soul, strength, and mind!

.

This is the first and foremost commandment of the Bible!

.

But too many parishioners leave church and live the rest of their week, enjoying the selfish cares and pleasures of this world, all to the bankruptcy of their soul and the souls of their children!

.

.

.

.

.

GOD TRIES TO GET OUR ATTENTION!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Depressionen.jpg

And so, God in His infinite love, finally allows one thing or another to get the full attention of that world-loving Christian.

.

Sometimes it might be a financial crisis. Or it may be some physical illness. Or some family problem.

.

And so-called mental illness is what God allowed to get the attention of that father in Mark Chapter 9!

WORLD-LOVING CHURCHES

.

Yes, the various churches and denominations have fully accepted this false science which goes directly against what the Bible says about lunacy or devil harassment/possession.

.

And so, the parishioners come away from church, thinking that they must deal with so-called mental illness as this unbelieving world deals with it.

OBEY IN ALL THINGS LAWFUL

.

Now, as yesterday’s devotional (click here) stressed, the parent is not to discard the child’s “medication”. No, in this case, the old saying is very applicable, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Four_colors_of_pills.jpg“When in Rome, do as the Romans do!”

.

Satan would love nothing more than to get the authorities to come down on Christian parents for their supposed neglect of their child’s health! Remember, we are still captives in this Babylonian world! We must obey the authorities in everything lawful! And there is nothing biblically unlawful with someone taking medication!

COME OUT OF BABYLON

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg.

But the parent is highly encouraged to follow God’s command to, “Come out of her, My people!” Revelation 18:4

.

Yes, the hour is now come that God’s people are to engage in the current end-time exodus out of Babylon.

“PURIFY YOUR HEARTS YE DOUBLE-MINDED!”

James 4:8

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg.

And as Christian parents continue to purify their own selves from the pollutions and false doctrines of the world (and the world-loving church), they may finally see their children no longer harassed by Satan.

.

And when the child is fully grown, that grown child can then make the decision on their own, whether or not to discard that medicine!

HEART PURIFICATION IS PARAMOUNT!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Ebenezer_Newman_Downard_Morning_prayer_1860-61.jpg

But God is not concerned about the question of “medication” nearly as much as He is desiring the parents to fully consecrate their own lives to Christ, and to purify their hearts from every defiling influence which emanates from this unbelieving world!

.

That’s the important thing!

.

That’s the only thing!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

ATHEISM AND THE NUMBER “6”

.

And so, without going into a lengthy discussion, let’s just say that of all the 7 heads of Antichrist, the head which most closely aligns with atheism would logically be the 6th head. And why the 6th head? The Book of Revelation, Chapter 13 warns that the Antichrist Beast has a number of 666. And it describes this number as being the “number of a man”. The number “6” in Scripture has to do with “Man”. It is a number which reminds of the 6th Day of Creation; the day that Man was created. Man was created on the 6th day. And so, Mankind is very much connected with the number “6”

.

And since atheism is the religion which holds Mankind as the supreme ruler of Earth, then the number “6”, being the number of Man, seems to correspond to the 6th head of Antichrist, very well.

.

Now these ideas may not be “written in stone”, as they say. And nothing hinges upon, nor falls apart, with or without these theories. But sufficed to say, there is strong evidence that these concepts have biblical support.

.

And so, this 6th star in the Revelation 12 Dragon’s wave of water, would correspond to the 6th head of the Antichrist Beast. And as already said, “waves” in Scripture, represent the many false ideologies which Satan has flooded the world with, throughout time. So that is why Signs Of Heaven website believes that atheism was the 6th head of Antichrist.

.
