Psychotropic Drugs & Antidepressants

I was contacted by my dear sister in Christ, by profession a psychiatric nurse, who would like to share her thoughts based on her work with so-called mentally ill patients. Please read carefully and consider what she described below. Please, remember, there is one God who has all power over all things. If you do not believe in Him, ask for revelation of Christ and showing you the truth.

Concerning the use/dependence of psychotropic drugs/antidepressants vs. dependence upon God.

Out of a sincere concern for the spiritual well-being of others, I want to share some of my ideas and personal experiences concerning this subject. I understand that I am strongly opinionated on this issue, however, I also feel that my opinions have been formed over many years and are based upon factual and verifiable information. Please take the ideas which I am about to share and use them to make informed decisions for yourself in this area.

I would like to start this with a short briefing on my background, as I feel it is pertinent to help understand some of the things which I am about to write. After completing some schooling in the area of nursing, I went into the work-field as a very medically–minded person. I have held to the typical ideologies that most doctors and nurses hold to concerning health and wellness and for the most part, I still do. However, in 2004 I became a Christian and the Lord radically changed my perspective on the issue of Mental Health.

Undoubtedly, psychological and emotional distresses are a very real problem for many people. The DSM contains hundreds of definitions for a mental health diagnosis. These diagnoses can range from depression to anxiety, to behavior disorders, to complete insanity. We have been told that an imbalance of the brain chemicals serotonin and dopamine are responsible for these types of issues. We are told that by taking various pharmaceutical drugs these imbalances can be corrected, yet, most of the time what we find in the individuals who take these types of prescriptions, are that these issues become far more problematic for people rather than healing. There have been absolutely no studies completed showing that a chemical imbalance is to blame for these types of symptoms. Nor is there any form of testing available to verify any type of imbalance or to demonstrate any type of improvement when using these medications. In fact, it is actually well-documented that the instances of death by suicide in these individuals increases dramatically along with a whole list of other debilitating side effects. Some of which include but are not limited to, nausea/vomiting, loss of appetite, changes in mood or mental state, hearing voices, hallucinations, nightmares, feelings of dullness/disconnected. All of these side effects along with others can be found listed on the package inserts that come with these drugs.

In my early days as a Christian, I was working at a behavioral health medical center. Most of my patients arrived at the facility with a 72-hour court hold for a psychiatric evaluation. Some were discharged after a few days, while others were there for several weeks or even months in some cases. After working there for only a short time, it became very obvious to me that many of my patients seemed to have a strange spiritual connection with God and spoke of Him often. I just assumed that this was the Lord’s way of letting the mentally incompetent know that there indeed was a God. Little did I know at the time, that what they were saying about God was actually quite blasphemous and foul. As a new Christian, I had started to read my Bible daily. I started to read things about how people were demon-possessed, and how Jesus and the apostles had cast out evil spirits from many people. I had never personally seen anybody who was demon-possessed and if you would have told me that there was such a thing that existed in our day, I surely would have laughed in your face and thought you were the one who belonged locked up in a mental institution. Yet, as time went on, and I continued reading my Bible, I started reading about many of the different characteristics that the demon-possessed people of the Bible had. (cutting/harming themselves, being mute, permanently hunched over, people who were simply uncontrollable just to name a few).

The Bible also included examples of individuals who possessed a strength that went far beyond any human capacity to contain. One such example given was that of a man that was so strong and out of control, they had to chain him up among the tombs and leave him cut off from the rest of society. In the psychiatric ward that I was working in, I have seen multiple individuals who seemed to possess this unnatural strength in which it took multiple medical professionals to pin these individuals down and give them medications by injection as the only means whereby to calm them down and keep them from harming themselves or somebody else. They were considered a danger to themselves and/or others. Part of my job role was to question my patients, asking them if they were hearing voices or if they were seeing things that others couldn’t. Most of the time they were. For documentation purposes, I was to ask them what the voices were saying to them. I was shocked to find that in ALL of their responses, every individual was either suicidal or homicidal.

Little by little I started connecting the dots so to speak from what I was seeing in reality versus the details I was reading in the scriptures. The Bible describes Satan as an enemy who comes to steal, kill, and destroy men’s lives and ultimately their souls. The Bible gives many examples of individuals who physically harmed themselves in various ways, everything from cutting themselves to committing suicide. In each one of these examples, it is also noted that there was a satanic/demonic influence upon these people. Even Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus and hung himself, was noted as having had Satan enter him beforehand. The Bible says that Satan tempted Jesus in this way, trying to persuade Him to throw Himself off of a pinnacle of the temple (an estimated 350 ft. height above the valley floor).

The final convincing factor for me in determining whether or not we see demon possessed people in our day, was when I had a middle-aged lady tell me that she was hearing voices one morning. She appeared very calm and friendly as we talked until I asked her what the voices were saying to her. It is hard to explain exactly what happened, but her face changed, her voice changed, and taking on very masculine characteristics and explicit language, she indicated to me that the voices were telling her to kill me.

What I seen right there, was not that lady but an evil spirit manifesting inside of her. On another occasion an 18-year-old young man was brought in for an assessment. He admitted to using methamphetamine for his first time and then stated, “From that point on, every time I look into the mirror, I do not see my own eyes looking back at me, but the eyes of a demon.” These words came out of his own mouth. As they do with so many others, including many rock-musicians who have stated in many interviews, as well their own song lyrics indicating their own personal belief of a strong demonic influence in their lives. The stories go on and on and always seem to go right along with what the Bible describes as being a characteristic of demonic influence. (https://www.goodfight.org/theater-main/they-sold-their-souls-for-rock-n-roll/)

With many of the world’s top psychiatrists admitting that most psychiatric patients have what is referred to as drug/substance-induced psychosis. (Mental health issues directly relating to drug and/or alcohol use.) It seems to me, that when scripture equates drug use with witchcraft (using the Greek word pharmakia/sorcery in Rev. 9:21 which is where we get our word pharmacy in English) It is a clear warning to us, that using drugs can open us up to the demonic influence in the spiritual realm, in the same manner as partaking in witchcraft would. This is not a new phenomena, so why does the idea of demonic influence seem so strange and unaccepted in our day?

I think that most people, would all agree, that street drugs are dangerous. Especially those of us who have worked in the medical profession and have seen firsthand the detrimental effects that these substances are having on the individuals who use them. But has anyone ever considered the possibility that the medical drugs we are using to treat these issues could be just as detrimental?

It is clear that based upon the side effects alone, there are certainly some unfavorable outcomes on the physical well-being. But has anyone ever considered the unfavorable outcome associated with the use of these drugs on our spiritual well-being? As I mentioned above, some of the side effects associated with these drugs are listed as hallucinations, hearing voices, seeing things that aren’t really there, and perhaps one of the most alarming effects, the increase of suicides and suicidal/homicidal thoughts?

I have had many patients tell me, that the voices they are hearing are so persistent and relentless, that they feel as though they cannot get any sleep or rest until they give in and obey the voices that they are hearing. Keeping these things in mind, I think that it is fair to at least consider, and ask the question, as to whether or not these medications may pose more significant problems then we now recognize. I can’t help but wonder.

I have spoken directly with people who claim that they started hearing voices only after they started taking prescription drugs for a mental health related issue. One of the most concerning aspects to this was the fact that representatives from the major pharmaceutical companies would come into the various health care facilities where I have worked. They would make regular visits and each time they would buy all of the medical staff lunch and do a short presentation as to why they felt that their company’s drug was the ‘best’ and why our physicians should prescribe it to their patients. They would leave us with boxes full of samples of these medications and we would pass them out to our patients like candy. All a patient had to do was say they felt a little bummed out sometimes and they would be sent home with handfuls of medication samples and a prescription for these various drugs. In my personal opinion, life is often times full of grievances and disappointments. This is a normal part of life and getting a little down sometimes is natural. There is no such thing as a pill that makes the difficulties in life not hurt.

A few questions I think are fair to ask…

What is the history of psychotropic drugs? Where did they originate? With what substances are they made? Who is responsible for the production of such drugs? Who determines the safety of these drugs? If people are going ‘insane’ after using things like heroin, fentanyl, amphetamines, spice, and psychedelic mushrooms, why are so many of these same drugs being used in our hospitals as ‘medications’ for the treatment of mental illnesses? Fentanyl is being used to treat pain, amphetamines are used to treat things like anxiety and ADHD, the FDA has been researching and finding “promising” results in the use of psychedelic mushrooms for treating major depressive disorder. Marijuana and CBD are being promoted as healthy and safe treatments when there are studies showing a significant increase in the instances of psychosis in patients who use these as a form of treatment? Why do these studies seem to be almost completely ignored?

WHY? WHY? WHY?

If the people who are using these substances in the streets are experiencing detrimental side effects from them (which are being acknowledged by medical professionals) then why are we using them as medications and claiming that they are safe?

Could it be at all possible that when the Bible says that the whole world lies under the sway of the evil one (Satan), it really is true? Has his ideas infiltrated the world’s way of thinking?

Dear reader, I plead with you, do some research and find the answers to these questions for yourself before you decide to use these ‘medications’ as a treatment for any illness. For those of you who are already taking them, let me caution you with a severe warning, do NOT stop taking these medications abruptly as very serious side effects may occur including a high rate of suicide.. talk to your doctor about a safe way to wean off of them.

I know so many of you are in such desperate situations, but please know that there is hope found in Christ Jesus the Lord! He came that all people everywhere will know the truth, and that the truth will set them free! Christ Jesus, God in the flesh, died for our sins according to the scriptures, he was buried, and rose again the 3rd day according to the scriptures, he was then seen by the apostles and over 500 eyewitnesses declaring that He indeed rose from the dead. He now commands all men everywhere to repent of their sins and believe the gospel. Jesus came to save His people from their sins. Set them free from the bondage that has ensnared them to various lusts and all manner of evil. Sin separates us from God. Sin is the problem. God says there is no peace for the wicked. If you are experiencing any of these mental health issues please examine your life and identify any areas in which you may have given Satan a stronghold through the occult, witchcraft, psychics, drug use, alcoholism, bitterness, unforgiveness, etc.

“ God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble” Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.” James 4:6-10

Deny the World by Win Worley

Win Worley was a pastor whom God called into deliverance ministry unexpectedly, he had to learn how to cast out demons just in the process, and he loved people very much, trying to help them with all his heart. While all of it happened, he was working as a teacher and a pastor, and also he devoted lots of his time to pray for people.

You can find his books, the first one describing how all of it happened, and many booklets where he explains how to deal with certain demonic problems on amazon. You can also watch more of his videos on youtube. I do recommend his teachings, although I do not agree with all his methods of doing things but like Win always said, do not rely on him but check all things with the bible, the Holy Spirit will guide you. He had also a great sense of humour, which is not that common. After years of doing deliverance, evil spirits were so afraid of him that they were screaming just when he entered a church or another Christian gathering.

Is ‘The Lord of the Rings’ for Christians?

A Former Witch Looks At

The Lord Of The Rings

I would like to bring to your attention the problem of worldly and fantasy or witchcraft films and the problems they present. I think that most of us already know that the Harry Potter books or films are full of witchcraft and magic so this is not something that  Christians should be involved with, even if it is just reading or watching.

However, what about the very famous The Lord of the Rings bestseller? I watched the film many years ago when was still in the world and on the dark side. I was absolutely delighted with that film and loved it. I left the cinema in awe, the special effects were amazing and altogether the experience of watching it was great. It left a lasting impression on me.

Now, many years later after the Holy Spirit has shown me so many various ways used by the enemy to deceive us, I am very careful and research all kinds of things and people that have any influence on me. The Lord of the Rings has come to my attention today and I would like to show you the information by a former witch who was born again and saved by the mercy of the Lord Jesus,  what she thinks about that book and the film,  how she finds lots of awful, demonic influence in this epic and how bad it can be for anybody, including Christians. Have a look and read what she says. I agree with her, this is not a book for a born again, walking with God and anointed by the Holy Spirit child of the Living God, be very careful what you put before your eyes and into your ears.

May God lead you and guide you in your walk with Him.

Warning from a former witch

Another warning about false teachers and deception among Christians. Beware.

 

I want to warn you again to be very careful who you are asking for help and prayer. Yes, of course, deliverance ministers can also be deceivers, often probably being deceived themselves, they perform false healing, overwhelmed by the power they possess, coming from some strange source and received by so-called “impartation” the word loved in the circles of false teachers. False miracles, false deliverance like those done by Benny Hinn, Todd White or Todd Bentley but not by the true Holy Spirit of the Living God.

So-called miracles performed by that strange power, some sinister force laughing at gullibility of people, so-called Christians who believe anything and everybody, not checking anything with the bible.

I was asked today to check who that man Mark H. mentioned in this video is, and whether he is OK to pray for deliverance. I saw a few of his videos a long time ago and I didn’t like what I saw at all.  I have been involved in deliverance for over two years in the past and I still do pray for people when God sends me someone but it is never in any way similar to what this man is doing which is comparable to what is happening in churches with kundalini spirit like Bethel for instance.

His weird deliverance and healing ministry do not resemble the true working of the Holy Spirit at all. Someone made an effort and prepared this video to warn you. Do not go to people like these men in this presentation. Do not believe that this man called Mark H. can deliver you from anything, instead you will get even more demons transferred to you straight from his touching hands or weird blowing into the mike or on your body.

In fact, some of his activities remind me what I saw in reiki sessions years ago.

Do not trust anybody who says they are this or that, check everyone and everything before submitting yourself for prayer, do not let anybody lie hands on you, we are living in times of massive deception in churches, focus on the bible and Jesus alone, He is the deliverer.

Love the truth and ask God to give you discernment so you will not be easily deceived, you must love the truth which is in the bible and will be revealed to you by the real Holy Spirit of the Holy God. Be very careful whom you trust. It is God alone who can deliver you, not people. People may be used to pray for your deliverance but it is only God Himself who decides if you are ready for deliverance and it is not going to happen in such a way like shown above. Do not run to several people to pray for you. Stay with the one you trust or pray as long as it is needed until God Himself will deliver you, He is always true, and He knows the best way how to set you free. Stay focused on Jesus and getting to know Him. Many people do not get deliverance because of their wrong attitude.

For such a time like this…

Years ago I discovered online a very strong Christian man whose name was Dimitru Duduman, a Romanian pastor whose life was very hard but filled with incredible power of God. His history can be found here Dimitru Duduman’s life story. 

And you can find his preaching online.

God gave him several dreams and visions about future events. One of them touched me deeply in those days when I read it. And I was quite shocked as it was the beginning of my learning journey.  Now, after several years of walking with the Lord, after being trained and tested in fiery trials I can say this is true. And this is amazing, how God is training His army of people all over the world, so they will be able to stand against the devil’s schemes. But there are not many bold ones, just like in the Old Testament.

It is also a warning for those who are lukewarm, lukewarm Christians who think this is the life when they should be blessed and happy and successful. Those who follow so called, prosperity gospel. You should wake up now when you still have time. Work when you still can as the night is coming quickly. Today, the preaching of Franklin Graham, the son of Billy Graham has been banned from in Glasgow, which was scheduled in May. There is a petition against his preaching in London, and he was banned from preaching in Liverpool. They say this pastor preaches that homosexuality is a sin. That’s why they don’t want him in the UK. Shocking but not surprising when we know what is going on.

This is the dream:

THE BLACK ARMY

May 7th, 1993

One night, while in Oregon, I dreamed the sky was getting dark.  Then suddenly it turned pitch black!  It was as if the whole world had gone dark at that moment!   All the people were in a frenzy!  They became disoriented, and some were even screaming. After some time, we heard the sound of an army approaching.  Soon, we saw them coming out of the black mist.  All were dressed in black, except one.  That one seemed to be their leader.  He was dressed in a red robe with a thick black belt over his waist.  On his head, he had a sign.  As I looked, I saw that in his hand he held the same kind of sharp spear as everyone else in his army.

“I am Lucifer!” he exclaimed.  “I am the king of this world!  I have come to make war against the Christians!”

Read the rest here:

The black army

Wicca is one of the fastest-growing religions in the world. Wake up, people.

I have noticed that most churches do not even mention this theme, ever. They do not want to think or talk about demons as if they went extinct like dinosaurs.

If you want to learn more how witchcraft is spreading check the documentary : “Britain’s Wicca Man (Pagan Witchcraft Religion Documentary) | Timeline”.

But beware there are some nasty and sexual images there. We need to wake up to the reality of what’s going on behind the scenes. Demons are being pushed everywhere, sexualization, perversion and demonization are in the mainstream media and education. It’s shocking what’s happening but most people close their eyes and live in a bubble hoping it’s going to be OK! No!, It’s going to be even worse, but 90 per cent of Christians do not even know how to deal with a tormented person, how to cast out demons and how to get self-deliverance when they are under attack. They cannot even discern that this is a demonic attack.

Let’s be serious at last. Tell people about Jesus, wherever you go and whoever wants to listen, pray, stay in the bible and learn how to do deliverance, how to be strong in the Lord and how to do spiritual warfare. You can start with teachings by Derek Prince on demons and deliverance, get his books and pray that the Holy Spirit leads you and protects you. Watch his teachings on youtube. It is not a game, it is extremely serious. The Lord Jesus gave us everything we need to fight this evil. Do not neglect your weapon. It is there, ready to be used. And love your God with all your strength, and heart and love your neighbour.  Love is the highest expression of holiness.

Pray with psalms, they are superbly anointed.
