THE WEEKLY ENCOURAGER 19 December 2010
(From James Stacey: scriptural advice and insight on how to be set free from schizophrenia)
IT IS IGNORANCE AND FEAR ABOUT THE DEMONIC THAT DELAYS
YOUR FREEDOM FROM SCHIZOPHRENIA
THIS WEEK'S SELECTED BIBLE READING IS ISAIAH CHAPTER 9: Key verses 2-7: (To Us a Child is Born): The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned. You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest, as men rejoice when dividing the plunder. For as in the day of Midian's defeat, you have shattered the yoke that burdens them, the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor. Every warrior's boot used in battle and every garment rolled in blood will be destined for burning, will be fuel for the fire. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David's throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and for ever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this.
It is a sad fact to contemplate that a large number of Christians suffering with schizophrenia will never be released into the full freedom of Jesus until fellow Christians have faith to believe that the spiritual bondage can be defeated.
A giant stumbling block of unbelief has got to be removed and give way to a firm conviction about the demonic nature of the psychotic condition. Without receiving such a breakthrough in spiritual understanding, Christians will remain unable to be fruitful to you in being an instrument of deliverance and healing.
I had no need to remain in a schizophrenic prison for 26 years if members of the church of Jesus Christ had been spiritually aware of my plight. How pathetic that no-one seemed to realise that it was Satan himself who was behind the so-described mental illness that robbed, stole and would have destroyed my life!!
Pray Until Schizophrenia Heals (PUSH) has a desire to do what it can to see that countless thousands of Christian believers throughout the world DO NOT spend anything like a similar time in a mental prisonhouse deprived of the deliverance and healing from Jesus Christ, the Conqueror of schizophrenia.
