THE MENTAL HEALTH SOLUTION
Psychology is slow recognizing how the spirit realm functions. Most of the psychiatric world ridicules belief in demons. Mental disorders do exist and yes Satan is alive and well.
Both neurobiological and/or spiritual reasons exist for some people with mental illness. There is NO non-spiritual cure for a spiritual problem. There can be, however, a spiritual cure for a non-spiritual problem.
It’s a simple issue. God is the greatest Healer ever known, and He can heal all things, regardless of cause. Man’s healers are limited by their finite power and ability. They can heal some physical/psychological things, some of the time. It therefore stands to reason that God can heal things of both a spiritual nature AND a physical or psychological nature.
LACK OF WISDOM
There is a variety of mental illnesses that do not allow us to “see” reality “as it is”, but rather see it through the distorted lens of doubt, ignorance and misconception. The root cause of this is lack of the true perception that is due to lack of wisdom, understanding or knowledge.
This type of understanding is given by the Holy Spirit to those who pray and meditate. We should be willing to write down what comes to us in a journal at this prayer time. ”If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, Who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” James 1:5
This type of illness can also keep us in bondage, prevent God’s healing power from working within us, and cause us to become physically ill. We could force the demons to leave by the power and authority of Jesus Christ.
HOW DOES DELIVERANCE WORK?
Jesus said, “I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy.” Luke 10:19
These evil spirits immediately obey us in the name of Jesus Christ, submit to us (Deliverance practitioners), acknowledge our power, and are forced to come out of the bodies they possess. They fear Christ, have mortal dread of the word of God, and obey believers who speak it with authority: “At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth.” Philippians 2:10
Jesus explained this power-principle when He told the disciples “You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.” Acts 1:8
