My following testimony is inspired by shapes' post in the "Worthy Q & A for Seekers" forum. And I quote, "How does God deal with those who have mental illness. Does he heal people from this affliction?" https://www.worthychristianforums.com/topic/219239-mental-illness-god/#comment-2777709
God dealt with my mind in a mess by giving me a guardian angel. I have seen and heard her. God had me born into an amazing family. They love, protect and provide for me. God gave me and the ability to discern real true friends. Only a couple dozen never gave up on me. God supplied me with doctors, psychiatrists and professionals. Medications, personal care and safety nets caught me when I fell, repeatedly. God commands my government, nation and community services to help me, however little and lacking it is. God dealt with me by interacting with my heart, mind, body and soul. Most importantly, God dealt with my sin by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to save, protect and heal me.
I have been saved since 2016's Christmas season. I dove deep into everything Christian and came up baptized on the last day of 2017 (also baptized as an infant). I attended some prayer meetings last year. They anointed me with oil and prayed for the healing of my mind. Since then, God has been healing and restoring me among other areas of my life. I feel shocks of energy surge though and jerk my body. I have been told this is the blood of Jesus running through me. When I am praying, willingly changing my thoughts to God's will, having revelations or meditating on God, I feel tangible physical healing in my temples behind my eyes. It has the similar sensation of a yawn, a condensed vibration. A Christian veteran I admire said something that stuck in my head relatively recently. "I don't even think like that anymore." It was a eureka revelation moment at the time and applies to what has been happening to my mind over the past year. I am becoming less like the Greg of the past and more like Christ. The Holy Spirit is alive and well in me and changing me for the better.
The short answer is, "yes," He does heal people from this affliction.
How God deals with sin, evil, death and even demons is by offering Jesus Christ a place in between us and all those "mental health issues." The secular world is leaving out God (in three Persons) as the ultimate and only real true solution, cure, coping mechanism and explanation, etcetera. I am living breathing proof. People would have a hard time believing my past. People in my past would have a hard time believing my present. My future will be hard to believe for anyone stuck in the secular world ignoring the one, true, living God. Jesus Christ is alive and well and has made me so, eternally, glory be to our Heavenly Father!
12 The demons begged Jesus, “Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them.” 13 He gave them permission, and the impure spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.

3 Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest.

7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

What are your thoughts on the Wiccan faith, one of the oldest faiths predating Christianity, worshipping the Mother Goddess and the Horned God, I practice Divination and have been surrounded by spirits from a young age, some benevolent and some hostile, very hostile, I do believe that I tied them to myself because of something I did, but will not disclose that as it is very personal to me, I wouldn't call myself a Wiccan, but my beliefs are quite like one, as I believe in my experiences, is this against God's will? And what are your personal opinions (fueled by religion or not) about this topic?
One of the main things I have been dealing with every day for years is spiritual warfare. It is a long, convoluted story worthy of a book series, and involves evil people as well as demons. I will not even attempt to describe the background story. I am just writing to say I suffered a HUGE attack early this morning, and I am in very very very bad shape and need prayer. The enemy is literally out to kill or destroy me. This is not an impression, which may be incorrect, but the repeated evidence of the events of many years. Please help me with your prayers. Thank you so much.
Hell is a place for demons, not for humans. So why do you Christians believe souls with a human nature would go to hell? Is it not just souls with demonic nature that should go to hell, hence hell is a place for demons? Why do you believe that human un-belief would straightly lead to an eternity in hell? But if I simply believe I will simply go to heaven. But I would not want to be an eternity with a God that has sent the rest of the souls to an eternity in hell for not having done anything demonic, but for just have been human. I completely understand if God sends souls who are demonic in nature to hell, because there is where THEY belong, until they have changed.
I believe something more rational and just: a soul that is human in nature will stay in a human body within a human environment the next life, and a soul who are demonic in nature will stay in a demon body within a demonic environment, hell, the next life, and a soul who have become Christed in nature will stay in a perfect body within a perfect environment, heaven, the next life. Is not this a just system?
I believe it is unjust of God to send a humanly soul to a place that is only for demonic souls... TO A PLACE THAT IS ONLY FOR DEMONIC SOULS!
It is unbelievable for me that a loving God would send a soul that I love to an eternity in hell for just not being a Christian.
I see so much anger and hate in such a God! But I don´t believe that God is such angry and hateful: I believe God is loving and JUST - demons go to hell, humans stay in a human world, Christed humans go to heaven.
Hi everyone! Recently my husband and I started attending a spirit filled church. The first night we were there I spoke in tongues for the first time in my life. I'd always been convinced it was demonic and anyone doing it was of the devil. Then it happened to me.
We've been going for a few weeks now. God has started revealing skeletons in my closet that need to be dealt with. I'm going tonight for a deliverance session. It was revealed to me that I'm dealing with a Jezebel spirit. I can clearly remember two times in my life, once at 3 and once at about 11, where I "floated". The second time was witnessed by my younger brother. My family even joked about it for years saying I could teach them to float in case of a flood or Earthquake! In highschool I learned about demonic levitation. When I mentioned it to my dad at dinner he dropped his fork, left the dinner table, and never joked about me "floating" again.
In 2012 I had deliverance from a mocking spirit. I saw Hell and felt fear like nothing I've never felt before or since. Recently, attending the new church, I've grown increasingly angry and hostile on church days. Often fighting with my husband right before we walk in.
Last Thursday they laid hands on people. As people were falling down in the power of the Holy Spirit I could hear laughter in my head even though I thought it was cool. When they put their hands on me I felt a rush of electricity and the voice in my head got louder saying "you don't believe this do you?" Then I fell to the ground and CLEARLY heard that voice say "that's all he's got it's real but it's not enough" and the laughter in my head for REALLY loud.
I reached out to the pastor and explained what happened that night and he said I should come in for deliverance. Last night I googled mocking spirit and learned that a Jezebel spirit runs in tandem with a lesser mocking spirit. That the Jezebel spirit is off witchcraft. I've dabbled with Wicca over the years!
Has anyone else dealt with this? I have always been a gifted writer. More recently I have discovered a gift for art. I've drawn things that have happened. I've written things that have happened. Is it possible or even likely that something attached to me very young because of the calling and gifts? I've had a series of abusive relationships. Thankfully am married to a wonderful man now!!! The Jezebel spirit sounds just like some of the men before my husband.
I've prayed in Jesus name to be rid of whatever the darkness is. Nothing seems to have worked. Hopefully tonight is the end.
