Most people who don’t know the truth believe that our mental disorders are medical diseases. Science has proven that there are certain brain chemistry changes in people with diverse mental diseases. This helps aid the development of medication to help stabilize the nerve synapses and the hormone levels. Being a medical professional myself, I advocate taking medication to help treat all of our illnesses.
Yet, as a Holy Spirit filled Christian who has been taught a lot about the unseen realm of the supernatural, which is confirmed by the Holy Bible, I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that science will never trump God’s truth. As a matter of fact, science only evolves to finally conclude the ultimate truth, which is the Holy word of God.
According to the word of God which yes was written over a thousand years ago, inspired by the Holy Spirit, we are taught that the earth that we see, is built on the word of God. The earth manifests God’s truth, it will never dispel it. And in the areas where it has not yet evolved, it is temporarily ignorant. One truth that I have found to prove that is the development of CBT or cognitive behavioral therapy which is probably the most effective behavioral modification program that teaches us to learn how to change our behaviors by first changing our thoughts, all the while it has been written in the ancient Holy Bible that we are to place our thoughts on things above.
As we dig into the bible and are enlightened through the power of the Holy Spirit (by the way, if you have never been saved you will not likely experience this enlightenment, because with salvation comes the Holy Spirit who teaches us the truth by the word of God, you can be a bible scholar and still not know the truth), we learn some valuable lessons about spiritual warfare. We are told that our battle is not with flesh and blood, but with spiritual powers and wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12). The real truth of the matter is that what we see from a science lab is a physical manifestation of a spiritual transformation.
All those low things that plague us, anxious thoughts, feelings of hopelessness and suicide, feelings of low self-worth, lust, pride.. the list is endless are geared by demonic whispers. We have believed those whispers, embracing them as our own tainted thoughts. I believe that taking medication and going to counseling is a worldly way of trying to resolve a spiritual issue. Whereas, if we deal with the demonic stronghold behind those whispers, the cause of the psychological wound stops.
I had experienced depression with suicidal ideations since childhood. When I was a young adult I was diagnosed with some mood and anxiety disorders and given medication to take. The doctor told me that it would only get worse as I aged and that I would likely end up being hospitalized for it. I would take the medication, stop the medication, take it, stop it. At one point I accepted that I would always be dependent on psychotropic medications for the rest of my life, and that having major depression would always be my disability in life. Then God started exposing the truth to me, he brought many anointed prophets into my life to pray for me, and then Satan was exposed and I was delivered from that spiritual bondage. I can truly say that I am no longer oppressed or depressed. I just don’t have that problem anymore. Through God’s intervention, the lie of depression was exposed, the root cause being exposed then with that truth and prayer that issue was resolved. I’d been healed, hallelujah. Do I still have bad days? Sure. Do I get down sometimes? Yes. Though I would never call it depression because it isn’t like that anymore, maybe sad or discouraged. Those feelings are normal, but depression, major depression, and the like are not.
There is so much more to say on this topic but I’ll conclude this topic for now and pick it back up another day as I’m led. What thoughts are you experiencing today that have you anxious, confused, discouraged, depressed, hopeless, irritated? Any that you are aware of? You think they are really your thoughts, but are they really?
Lord, please expose the enemy and guide us into all the truth so that we can be freed from captivity. Thank You God. Amen.
