Obsessive Compulsive Cycle
I was completely swept along with my own compulsion.
The Obsessive Compulsive Cycle: Damn Unwanted Thoughts!
Since the relief it brings is of limited duration, the compulsion and obsession is a gesture that has to be repeated and thus becomes a habit. The cycle is as follows:
1. The doubt in which the obsession is rooted persists.
2. The threat of danger arises again in one’s mind.
3. The sense of discomfort recurs.
4. The compulsion has to be repeated to neutralize the danger.
About 1 in 50 people, that’s over 5 million Americans and 500,000 Canadians, have developed obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD). Recent research shows that some children may even develop the illness as early as their preschool years… and that a full one-third of current adult OCD cases began in childhood. Some other researchers believe OCD may be hereditary.
What is a compulsion?
In obsessive-compulsive disorders (OCD), the action that results directly from obsessive thinking is a compulsion, affected people to make specific gestures to suppress the anxious thinking/condition which is plaguing them.
The goal of a compulsion is to eliminate the threat posed by an obsession. Compulsive actions provide temporary relief from the distress, discomfort or disgust caused by an obsession. It can cause tremendous anxiety for those who have it.
|Fear of contamination by dirt, bacteria, disease, excrement, etc.||Washing, taking many long showers, incessant cleaning|
|Fear of harming others as a result of carelessness (e.g., fear of causing an accident)||Repetitive rituals, making sure that nothing terrible has happened|
|Excessive preoccupation with order and symmetry||Arranging things in a precise order, placing or folding things in the same way|
|Fear of being afflicted by a serious disease such as cancer or AIDS||Taking excessive measures to eliminate contact with contaminants|
|Perverted impulses, images or thoughts related to sexuality||Invoking opposing images; reassuring oneself or asking for reassurance in a repetitive manner|
|Exaggerated concern about one or more body parts (e.g., fear that one’s nose is deformed or one’s skin is blemished)||Spending hours in front of a mirror, putting on excessive amounts of makeup|
|Fear of being responsible for a terrible event||Checking that doors are locked or that electronic devices are unplugged|
|Preoccupation with sacrilege, blasphemy or morality||Prayer, performing mental rituals, using special numbers or words|
|Fear of throwing away an object that might be needed later||Gathering and hoarding useless objects and papers|
You are constantly battling yourself. Just as you can’t run away from your hips, you can’t get rid of your thoughts. Thought control and thought suppression don’t work. Worse—they make you feel more hopeless. Try not to think of polar bears for the next thirty minutes. Oops. There’s another polar bear. It won’t work.
Maybe you’ve heard others say things like, “Why can’t you pull it together?” or “You don’t have enough faith in God,” or “Just cut it out.” You recognize that your thoughts and/or behaviors seem crazy, but you can’t stop.
No one seems to understand how much misery this is causing you! Your obsessive thoughts and compulsive or repetitive behaviors may even be destroying your ability to live, work, and function in society.
OCD is Curable
and you can have a happy, healthy life?
David in describes oppression and deliverance perfectly: “the pains of hell got hold on me…I found trouble and sorrow” “…He loosed my bonds.” Psalms 116:3
Deliverance is probably not what you have heard that it is. It is not like the movies; it is not like Hollywood. It is for believers! It is nothing to be afraid of and is totally non-threatening to the individual. It is simply inner healing by removal of the cause of the problem.
WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?
Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.” 1 Peter 5:8,9
All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’” Luke 10:17
DO YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?
To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
- Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
- Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
- Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
- You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
- Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
- Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
- Are you attracted to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
- Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
- Do you keep hitting the same wall.
“God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with Him.” Acts 10:38 That is what deliverance is, breaking the oppressing power of the enemy!
Demons or evil spirits must have permission to be in some one’s life. Just as the Holy Spirit honors our will, demons must also and cannot intrude without some kind of consent. Consent can be as simple as being in the presence of a Ouija Board, a childhood abuse or trauma, periods of anger or unforgiveness, etc.
Once consent is granted the demon takes up residence in the soul or flesh and begins to build a “kingdom” bent on destruction. Jesus described the works of Satan as “rob, kill, steal, destroy” John 10:10 You need not fear. The deliverance setting is casual, yet, it is holy. We will depend upon the Holy Presence of God’s Spirit to lead us and guide us. But, “everyone will bow at the Name of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 2:10
Gluttony Is Not Merely Overeating
Gluttony is not merely overeating, eating unhealthily, or eating when you are not hungry, although all of those are signs of gluttony.
Gluttony is of an evil spirits with no positive characteristics. So, a person bound by a spirit of gluttony will have unnatural eating habits, compulsions, and cravings. Not only being denied food, but being denied the type of food and the amount of food that the demon is motivating to crave will cause such a person severe emotional, mental, or even physical distress.
So if you have some demon of gluttony telling you that you are just worthless, useless, a pig and a slob, and that God will never love or accept something gross and disgusting like you, then know that this demon is LYING.
The person afflicted with this will not only think but fantasize about food all the time. He will use food as a motivation and reward. He will use eating as a way to mask his problems and as an escape. He will believe that eating and eating certain things will make him happy. At first, eating will make him happy for a time, but the happiness will go away.
Then, the eating will not make him happy, but he will continue to eat anyway chasing the happiness that it USED to give him, plus he knows nothing else to do and cannot control himself. Whenever such a person is sad, lonely, nervous, stressed out, fearful, is having financial/health/relationship problems, food will be the refuge.
The person will also allow himself to be trapped in bad situations, because rather than taking the steps required to extricate himself from it, he will just be passive, accept defeat, and just go eat something.
These are real people under demonic oppression, and they are in real pain! A great many of these people commit suicide, and if it is not by using a gun or pills it is just by eating themselves to death. So make no mistake, gluttony is no joke.
The question is how does this spirit enter. Most evil spirits enter as a result of a reaction to a person being wounded, neglected, or harmed emotionally or mentally in some way.
A small child, for instance, may suffer a great loss, and resort to eating his or her favorite food in order to cope with the grief, make it go away. A child being abused or molested may do the same.
It will involve confronting painful incidents from the past, especially childhood, including things long forgotten or more accurately repressed and buried under piles of food. The person who is eating because of failures must realize that the reason for the failures is his unwillingness to do only that which God wants him to do; a failure to submit to God and let God run his life.
The demons, which cause the gaping wound, unresolved issue, or unmet need must also be delivered. Once these demons are delivered from the overweight person, it is done! Of course, such a person will need not only spiritual deliverance, but a complete and total change in their lifestyle and the way that they look at life.
This person is still at risk for allowing the demon to re-enter. The way to overcome it is to remember Bible verses such as “perfect love casts out fear” and “God has not given us the spirit of fear but of a sound mind”. One must replace the evil spirit of gluttony with the spirit of love by reading the gospel according to John. It is all about love and you will love it. One must also thank and praise God for His healing until the problem is resolved. It took a lot of time to build up fat in one’s body, so it will take time to resolve.
In most cases, this may appear arduous, and the person could experience any number of failures and disappointments along the way, but the good news is that it almost always works through God’s grace! The dependency goes first, then the habits, then the craving.
“Hey, turn around!” “You are going in the wrong direction!” yells the wife at her husband. “Shhh, I am not lost – I know exactly where I am going!” the husband responds. These are famous last words – “I know exactly where I am going!” How many times have we told that to God? No thanks God, I got it!
Revelation 16 is talking about the enemies of God and those who reject His love and yet believers need to turn as well. These unbelievers had mocked God and refused to turn from their self-reliant ways and even refused to listen as God warned them. Shouldn’t all of us take this seriously. God alone saves us and He alone is perfect. God sends all of us warnings to turn and live – live for Him and through Him. I’m going with the Living God – how about you?
Do not live just for food or alcohol but live especially for the reason you were created by the Father. You have to eat it is true but don’t place your heart in food but in Me, Jesus. You were created to know, love and serve God and to be with Him forever in heaven one day.
DELIVERANCE AND EXORCISM
Exorcism is exercised in case of possession, while deliverance deals with the influences that are not full possession. There are very few cases of possession as compared to ever pervading influence of different kinds of evil spirits affecting many people.
“The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the Lord your God has not permitted you to do so. The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your fellow Israelites. You must listen to him.” Deuteronomy 18:9-15
“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth” Philippians 2:10 The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me Luke 4:18 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” James 4:7
These evil spirits are legalistic and they must be delivered in the Name of Jesus Christ by their function, otherwise the specific spirit would simply say “they are not talking to me” and they will stay.
WHO HAS THE AUTHORITY TO DELIVER EVIL INFLUENCES A faithful Christian who is sinless: otherwise the evil spirits will just laugh at one’s sins.
The person being delivered does not have to be Christian. In fact, if you are a die-hard Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist or any other religion you are in for a big surprise. You will only know by trying it: you have every thing to gain and nothing to lose.
I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you. Luke 10:19 “The one who does what is sinful is of the devil … The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work.” 1 John 3:8 In the Name of Jesus Christ, you can take authority over all evil influences and break these influences over your life. This is accomplished together with one other Christian who is of God or is very close to God.
HOW DO YOU KNOW A DELIVERANCE HAS TAKEN PLACE?There is a definite sense of peace, which envelopes over the one being delivered. You definitely know something has happened.
Then comes Deliverance!!!
You may be wrapped up in a prickly blanket of sadness, you may be depressed, stressed or anxious, but it isn’t your fault.
You can help yourself more than anyone. The evil influence on you can be defeated through Jesus, the Source of strength. “Every knee will bend before Me” Romans 14:11 That includes all evil spirits influencing you.
To our friends who are Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist, Taoist, Mormon and Jehovah Witness:
To our knowledge, there is no one in your religious belief that can bind and deliver demonic spirits. There is a reason for this: demonic attacks are warded off in Jesus’ Name. It requires a bible oriented Christian to do the deliverance. You still can be delivered from your attacks, but it needs that all important Christian to command all evil spirits to go to Jesus Christ who will dispose of them according to His Will and to never return .
The short form is “In the name of Our Lord Jesus, I bind and deliver the evil spirits of … to go to the abyss.” This is said for each individual evil spirit.
The following prayer can be done together: the person to be delivered must also pray during “OUR PART“: “Come, Holy Spirit, Come” or “Come, Lord Jesus, Come” silently.
Your Christian friend will command these spirits to go back where they came from (the abyss) to be soon replaced with the Love and Blessing of the Lord: Free in Jesus.
The void that that takes place brings a complete sense of peace, and you will now be free in Jesus.
(In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command all evil spirits influencing you now, as you read this, to be quiet and not to give you any evil thoughts. This I command in the Name of Jesus.)
If you don’t believe this, try it and see for yourself. You will definitely know in three minutes that a physical change has taken place.
The person delivered must now thank God for the spiritual healing every day until the total deliverance has taken place and to thank Him whenever he or she thinks about it. One must soak oneself in God’s love by reading the Bible: the short gospel of Luke for beginners and later the gospels of John.
FAITH IS THE FINAL INGREDIENT.
The key to the gifts of healing is one’s faith. People’s persistence proves their faithfulness. They believe that God has the answer to all their prayers. Persistent prayer is answered because those who believe actually expect to be healed by God, so they continually ask until they receive.
After receiving the beginning of healing, you must pray:” Lord Jesus, I love You; I believe in You; I trust You.
A FAITH PRAYER
The person delivered and healed must continue to thank God for the spiritual healing every day until the total deliverance and healing has taken place and to thank Him whenever he or she thinks about it (a minimum of once a day) by a FAITH breath prayer until the healing takes place; it is only 12 words:
LORD JESUS, I PRAISE YOU AND I THANK YOU FOR YOUR HEALING.
Thanking God, before the healing happens, strengthens your faith.
The delivered person does not want to ever go back to the ever pervading influence of evil spirits. It is very important to connect with a Bible-oriented church.
This same prayer of deliverance can be used to exhort evil influences on members of your family by name in the same manner with you as the intercessor and with your prayerful Christian. They should be made aware of your prayer as a gentle mention that you have prayed for them so they can become more sensitized to God’s Love.
The person praying for deliverance must be free of sin otherwise the devil will just laugh.
This prayer of deliverance can be printed, quartered and kept in your wallet.
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE.
The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.
Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.
In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles. How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing. They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth.
Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.
This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.
He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?
- Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.”
- Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
- Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength.
- Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
- Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
- Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
- Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.
Christianity on a Table Napkin:
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin. “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.” Luke 1: 49
Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”? And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you.
“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”. Isaiah 1:18
You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.
