THE FAITH BY WHICH YOU SEE JESUS CHRIST INSPIRES HOPE TO CONQUER AND LOVE TO ENDURE

easter

THIS WEEK’S SELECTED BIBLE READING IS PHILIPPIANS CHAPTER 3: Key Verses 7–14:  But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.  What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things.  I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ – the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith.  I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow to attain to the resurrection from the dead.  Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.  Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it.  But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining towards what is ahead, I press on towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenwards in Christ Jesus. Verses 20-21:  But our citizenship is in heaven.  And we eagerly await a Saviour from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

james stacey aug 09

It is worth recalling that a person finds Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour through an act of believing faith involving the whole of one’s personality.  From then on, right throughout life, it is important to take good care of your faith. 

Possessing faith in Jesus is most infinitely precious.  Jesus placed so much importance on faith that he once asked:  “When the Son of Man returns will he find faith on the earth?” 

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, the well-known preacher from generations ago, used to say:  “... Recollect that faith is the only means whereby you can obtain blessings.   Prayer cannot draw down answers from God’s throne except it be the earnest prayer of the man who believes.”  

Learning faith, growing in faith and exercising faith are invaluable lessons to learn in knowing more of the Lordship of Christ in one’s life.  So too is the relationship of faith and prayer and that without the presence of faith, prayer does not prevail. 

You may ask the question: “Is it possible to come through schizophrenia, defeat it and have life restored again?”   I strongly believe it is – through living a faith-filled life in the power of the Holy Spirit able to drive out the demonic presence behind the bondage. 

May I add confidently: “ I KNOW IT IS - because God in His mercy was gracious enough to quicken faith in my life in various ways that enabled me in the power of God to overcome the stronghold.” 

It’s not an easy process learning faith and living by it when your whole mind is below par through the taking of medication day in and day out.   Medication may well be stabilising you and preventing you from going high, but it debilitates strength and shackles your mind thereby hindering you from taking full command of your life.  It makes the dominance over your personality by evil spirits of darkness much easier.

There’s one thing you can ill-afford to lose - and that is the power of quickened faith in your life.  Emotions maybe dead, no spark of divine life may be bursting from within – but still hang on to God through His Word and place the anchor of your faith in Jesus.

You see what is happening in the mind when schizophrenia is at work is this:  your mind is duped into a state of inactivity so giving a free reign to a demonic spirit to run riot with plans to both control and take over your life. 

Faith in Jesus and His Word HAS GOT TO BE PRESENT in your life or there is little chance that hope will stir, grow and proceed to conquer.  This faith also takes hold of the love of Jesus and is determined to endure at all costs. 

Jesus spoke in Luke 17: 5-6 about having faith only as big as a mustard seed – the smallest of all seeds – but founded in the word of God that faith can rise and grow to such immense proportions as to astound you of what He is capable of achieving. 

In a public meeting after five years of being set free, I was asked the question by a man, who has since become a close friend, but who suffers with schizophrenia:  “How are you so certain that Jesus Christ can help you keep your freedom?” 

My reply, containing confidence in the promises and faithfulness of God, was simply this:  “The God who has set me free is well able to keep me free.  He has both the resources and power to do both.” 

We do well to remember the glorious victory which our Lord Jesus obtained for us on Calvary.  There, He paid a sufficient price for our sin with His own life as He offered Himself freely for us.  The Great Creator, who became our Saviour, defeated all the powers of the kingdom of darkness and rose triumphant out of the grave with a mighty shout of victory.

Once you see who you are in Christ, it will feed confidence into your spirit and that will affect your mind.  Very likely, it will not happen overnight.  But since God’s word is a transforming word, the promises of God will begin to work miraculously for you, and a glorious change will begin.

LET US CONSIDER THE IMPORTANCE THE JESUS CHRIST PLACED ON HAVING FAITH: 

1. JESUS STRESSED THE NECESSITY OF HAVING FAITH:  A real-life incident found in Mark 9 shows us what the power of active faith in Jesus can achieve.   We notice, first of all, that the disciples were unable to drive out the demon present in the life of a boy whose father had earnestly sought them to free him.  (What an opportunity there is for the Christian church today to be able to show the world at large the resurrection power of Jesus defeating the power of evil in people’s lives).  

THE FATHER WHO WANTED HIS SON HEALED WAS HELPLESS:   It is music in the ears of God that we are in such great need of His help.  Because our God is Saviour, Helper, Healer, Intercessor, Deliverer etc., etc., He is well able to send out delivering help to the helpless.   When you are in a desperate situation, you will try every opening to get free.   Even possibilities which others suggest you should not pursue, you will try them!.  (Many are closed to the deliverance ministry of schizophrenia and yet their loved one is getting worse and more shackled in the bondage.  Why not allow God to give you an open heart and mind and move forward?)  When the father cried out to Jesus:  “But if you can do anything for us, help us,” Jesus replied:  “If you can believe, all things are possible!”  You see faith knows no limitations.  When faith in the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is present, you know that God can do anything and you expect Him to work;  how He does it is not your concern but work He will, make no mistake! Don’t allow what many Christians have settled into – limiting God for one reason only... they have ceased to have a living faith in Jesus and therefore expect nothing to happen. Have faith in God’s word!  “If God says it, then that’s good enough for me, and I believe it,” should be our motto.  

We do well to follow the example of Paul recorded in our reading for this week, namely that he placed his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.  You do not have faith in faith. Say with Paul, “I have faith in God.” (Acts 27.25) The Bible makes it clear that it is through faith that we are to come to God if we are to please Him – the kind of faith that sweetly works by love.  We believe that God rewards those who diligently seek Him.   Hold on to the promises Jesus has made and let them become your inspiration to continue claiming their fulfilment.  Rest not in your spirit until you see the breakthrough of the promise God has laid on your heart. 

2. JESUS EXPLAINED THE POSSIBILITIES OF FAITH:   Jesus showed first of all that the requirement necessary for the father was to believe but in the same statement He said where faith is present ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.  Do you believe that?  Can you believe for that?  God can so enlarge your faith and make it so dynamic that there will be an inner assurance in your heart to expect the fulfilment of promises in the Bible and of answers to your own prayers.  

THE FATHER WHO WANTED HIS SON HEALED WAS HONEST.   He declared to Jesus that there was some faith in his heart but in his estimation it probably didn’t account for much.  That’s why he said:  “I do believe, help my unbelief.”  And Jesus did!  There was some faith there that Jesus could use.  In your life, too, be honest in recognising that although you may not have faith big enough to move mountains right now, there is at least some faith present.  God can use the amount of faith existing in your life and go on to enlarge it.  You will be amazed what God can do in terms of stretching your faith to expect great things from God.  The motto of William Carey, the cobbler who went to serve God in India, was:  “Attempt great things for God, expect great things of God.”   He proved it on both counts. 

3.  JESUS DECLARED THE REWARD OF FAITH:  In response to the father’s cry, Jesus brings healing to the boy by driving out a deaf and mute spirit.  Faith in Jesus always sees its reward.  Because you are totally dependent upon the Holy Spirit as a believer in Jesus, you have faith to believe that the answer will come in God’s time.  If you allow God through His Word to quicken faith in you to believe for the defeat of schizophrenia and live every day with that goal in mind, it will come to pass.  “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see,” says Hebrews 11 verse 1.   Faith sees the answer coming.  You know in your heart that “though it tarry, it shall surely come.”   Up to the present time, you may have thought that the defeat of schizophrenia is impossible, but once you are willing to believe and prevail for God’s answer in such a situation and declare “it is possible” a change will be forever made in the enlargement of your faith. 

THE FATHER WHO WANTED HIS SON HEALED WAS HUMBLE:  Faith is a gift of God.   In Ephesians 2:8-9 it says:  “For it is by grace you have been saved through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no-one can boast.”  The father who wanted to see his son healed had a proper estimate of himself – and so should we.  If you recognise that everything you have – even including the gift of faith – is coming from the hands of your loving Heavenly Father it will keep you with a humble heart.    We always come to God with an open hand, realising that everything we have and are spring from His goodness, love and mercy.  The fact that He puts within us the desire to love Him with all of our heart, mind, soul and strength is a remarkable revelation and blessing indeed.  

FINAL THOUGHT:  One well-known London preacher in the 1950s used to exhort his hearers to seek by faith the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ.  He emphasized:  “You can have all the grace you want, but to be able to have more you must use up the present proffered grace before you can use the grace that succeeds it.”   BE DETERMINED TO ALWAYS HAVE A HEART FULL OF CHRIST-INSPIRED FAITH – SUCH FAITH WILL CERTAINLY ENABLE YOU TO SEE CHRIST AND INSPIRE HOPE TO DEFEAT SCHIZOPHRENIA!

WEEKLY ENCOURAGER 30 September:

Anchor Your Faith In Jesus Christ And You Will Never Lose Hope

While it is commonly known that every Christian must do his own believing, the Church needs to know that a schizophrenic needs support to keep faith in Jesus Christ.

Freedom from the mental bondage for many begins when they receive unfailing compassion from fellow believers who understand just how great a battle it is to break free of the demonic stronghold.

A Christian schizophrenic needs a Christian friend.  If someone cares enough to get you your life back then that is a precious provision.  If you are fortunate in securing the help of a group interested in seeing Jesus break into your life, believe me, it is a most hopeful situation.

Christian schizophrenics the world over “have not” because of the absence of powerful and effective support from others loving them and petitioning God on their behalf.  The work of seeing a schizophrenic set free would move forward when the powerhouse of prayer is set in motion by the body of Christ.

Though it is hard for you as a Christian schizophrenic to keep faith in Jesus, the uphill fight must be maintained and, to this end, you must do your own believing.  It is important to have faith in Jesus.  "But how," you ask, "do I keep holding even a grain of faith in Jesus Christ when such tremendous odds are against me?"

sustaining leadership book - front cover
Many books on leadership and ministry are written from the point of view of success and strength. In Sustaining Leadership Paul Swann writes out of the raw experience of failure, getting to the heart of who we are as leaders rather than what we do. From this, he offers both hope and practical resources for sustaining effective long-term ministry, looking at self-care, balance and healthy ministry, feasting on divine love, and more. As he says, this is the best gift we can offer those we serve.

IF YOU HAVE NEVER INVITED JESUS CHRIST INTO YOUR LIFE, AND WISH TO, DO PRAY THE FOLLOWING PRAYER WITH ALL YOUR HEART: “Lord God Almighty, I approach you in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ.  I know I have sinned in my thoughts, words and actions.  There are so many good things I have not done.  There are so many sinful things I have done.  I am truly sorry for the sinfulness in my life, but most of all I acknowledge the sin that separates me from you. I accept the death of Jesus on the Cross to redeem me and extend the gift of eternal life.    Gratefully, I give my life back to you as I now ask you to come into my life.    Come in as my Saviour and Lord and cleanse me.  Come in as my Lord to control me.  Come with the strength of your grace and the power of your Spirit to defeat the evil spirit of schizophrenia that troubles me.  Now you have set my spirit free, pour your delivering and healing power into my life as I take authority in the name of Jesus through the power of his blood over the intruding force.  I assert your ownership of my life and resist any legal right that the devil seeks to hold over my life and bind up and expel any evil presence. I believe that my mind can be completely set free and my whole life enjoy the total freedom of Jesus.    Amen".

WHEN I'M BACK ON MY FEET AGAIN!!

God is always working to get us "back on our feet again."  He is well able to do it for YOU.

A warm welcome to our world ministry of offering real hope to schizophrenics and anyone mentally assailed.

Our website Pray Until Schizophrenia Heals exists to proclaim with a trumpet voice that the love and victory of Jesus Christ is today’s only answer out of mental bondage into lasting joyous freedom.

For 26 long years, I was enslaved in a schizophrenic mental prison house until in 1990 Jesus Christ delivered me and two minutes later healed my mind. It took a further 12 years to return to life as I knew it before the illness dawned in 1964.

In 2004, I released my life story, Schizophrenia Defeated, detailing a long, hard prayer battle into freedom in order to give hope, new understanding of the disease and a new strategy to unlock the gates of insanity of this invisible enemy.

It is our prayer that as you view our site, you will sense something of the compassion of Jesus which fills our hearts and lives to spread the message that His love and power can still bring His glorious freedom TODAY no matter how helpless and hopeless you may feel life has become.

With our love and prayers

James and Tina Stacey


the sword - image march 2015We are told in the book of Acts, chapter 2, verse 17, that “... your old men shall dream dreams.” The painting by the artist Rebekah Laue is a portrayal of her husband’s prophetic dream. She pondered the dream for many years before she was able to capture it’s essence on canvas.

the sword - image march 2015 - lionIn his dream, Peter saw a rock wall with an ordinary stick lying nearby. He was prompted to pick it up and beat vigorously on the wall. Nothing happened! Then he saw a lion’s paw at his feet. He dropped the stick, picked up the paw and barely touched the wall. As he did, the wall began to crumble.

Peter awoke weeping and trembling as he experienced new authority, purpose, power, and confidence streaming into every fiber of his being. In lieu of a lion’s paw he has acquired a real sword, which he now uses in spiritual combat.

The stick is symbolic of man using his own strength and wisdom to tear down strongholds. The rock wall is symbolic of those walls around our hearts that imprison us and cause us to be isolated from God and one another.

The Hebrew letters on the rocks represent strongholds such as hate, anger, revenge, rebellion, witchcraft, bitterness, pride, fear, unbelief, unforgiveness, lust, idolatry, greed, gluttony, jealousy, self-pity, legalism, and man’s traditions.

The sword issuing from the lion’s mouth is the Sword of the Lord, which is the Word of God. The lion portrays Jesus Christ as revealed in the book of Revelation, chapter 5: “... Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed...”

The truth in the painting shall march throughout the land like a banner and confront the strongholds that imprison us. Has God singled you out to carry that banner and address those strongholds? Before saying YES or NO, count the cost or the opportunity lost! TAKE A STAND! TAKE BACK THE LAND!

CLICK ON THE BOOK COVER to read the WHOLE of the book "Schizophrenia Defeated" and celebrate the gift of God's Son, Jesus Christ, who permanently delivered and healed me after 26 years of suffering the schizophrenia bondage. Click on the image - right - to read the book in its Spanish version.

Author's Information: 

The book is an autobiography of an amazing deliverance and healing from the evil of schizophrenia after 26 years.   It is an inspiring human interest story of triumph and hope over the worst kind of psychotic illness for which there is no present-day medical answer.

The strengths and appeals of the 16 Chapters embrace several thrilling themes:

1.  The power of the faithfulness and love of God is supreme
2.  The remarkable perseverance and endurance of my first wife Pamela, who died in 1981, and of my present wife, Tina, who were both inspired by God's love in helping me to freedom
3.  The relevance of the power of prayer to cast out the demonic bondage, and revelations about the illness which throw light on the burning question - "Is it in the genes or is it demonic?"
4.  Here is the answer for the medical world impotent to bring a lasting solution to the illness of schizophrenia
5.  There is clear evidence for the church who can't make up its mind whether genuine born-again Christians, like myself, can still have evil spirits enslaving their lives

The account charts my "history" of schizophrenia and how I was affected by rejection in my mother's life from the time of conception.  It details life up to teenage years, starting work as a journalist and the outbreak of the illness shortly after leaving Bible College.  Visits to psychiatric hospitals, struggles with a growing nest of evil spirits taking up residence in my life and eager to destroy me, the inability of Christians to help me, are all recorded from a memory amazingly preserved by the Holy Spirit despite perpetual onslaught.  Self-deliverance and healing by the power of the Holy Spirit within a matter of minutes are graphically described, as is the return to normal life after more than a third of a lifetime in bondage.

Well-known Baptist preacher, Charles H. Spurgeon, commenting on Psalm 119 verse 15 says:  “Hearing, reading, marking, and learning, all require inwardly digesting to complete their usefulness, and the inward digesting of the truth lies for the most part in meditating upon it.  Why is it that some Christians, although they hear many sermons, make but slow advances in the divine life?  Because they neglect their closets, and do not thoughtfully meditate on God’s Word.  They love the wheat, but they do not grind it; they would have the corn, but they will not go forth into the fields to gather it; the fruit hangs upon the tree, but they will not pluck it; the water flows at their feet, but they will not stoop to drink it.  From such folly deliver us, O Lord, and be this our resolve this morning, “I will meditate on your precepts.”

In his book, Prayer Life, Andrew Murray teaches:  “Little of the Word with little prayer is death to the spiritual life.  Much of the Word with little prayer gives a sickly life.  Much prayer with little of the Word gives more life, but without steadfastness.  A full measure of the Word and prayer each day gives a healthy and powerful life.”

 

THE MESSAGE OF HOPE FOR 2018
“WITHOUT THE SHEDDING OF BLOOD THERE IS NO FORGIVENESS”   - Hebrews 9:22

 By Charles  Haddon  Spurgeon

This is the voice of unalterable truth.   In none of the Jewish ceremonies were sins, even typically, removed without blood-shedding.   In no case, by no means can sin be pardoned without atonement.   It is clear, then, that there is no hope for me out of Christ;  for there is no other blood-shedding which is worth a thought as an atonement for sin.   Am I, then, believing in Him?   All men are on a level as to their need of Him.   If we be never so moral, generous, amiable, or patriotic, the rule will not be altered to make an exception for us.  Sin will yield to nothing less potent than the blood of Him whom God hath set forth as a propitiation.  What a blessing that there is the one way of pardon!  Why should we seek another?

Persons of merely formal religion cannot understand how we can rejoice that all our sins are forgiven us for Christ’s sake.  Their works, and prayers, and ceremonies, give them very poor comfort; and well may they be uneasy for they are neglecting the one great salvation, and endeavouring to get remission without blood.  My soul, sit down, and behold the justice of God as bound to punish sin;  see that punishment al executed upon your Lord Jesus, and fall down in humble joy, and kiss the dear feet of Him whose blood has made atonement for you.  It is in vain when conscience is aroused to fly to feelings and evidences for comfort;  this is a habit which we learned in the Egypt of our legal bondage.  The only restorative for a guilty conscience is a sight of Jesus suffering on the cross.  “The blood is the life thereof,” says the Levitical law, and let us rest assured that it is the life of faith and joy and every other holy grace.

“Oh! how sweet to view the flowing

Of my Saviour’s precious blood;

With divine assurance knowing

      He has made my peace with God.”

Extract from "There is hope for the schizophrenic" 

Chapter 16 of Schizophrenia Defeated:

As my testimony has shown, I had the presence of the Holy Spirit in my life before my illness went into full bloom in my early twenties. Without that power I would have been unable to fight the evil presence of schizophrenia.

I also had a tremendously long period after healing and deliverance had taken place to allow myself to "catch up" on 26 years in which I had not developed and grown normally.

BUT GOD DID IT! The years after healing and deliverance were times of slow but definite progress, requiring most of all a dependency on the Holy Spirit to teach, correct, inspire and show those things I needed to know. I needed Tina's help too, and the prayers of friends, to get me there.

bethany behney - webnumber 3“WHEN I FOUND FREEDOM FROM SCHIZOPHRENIA, I GAINED CHRIST HIMSELF” 
Bethany Behney

I suffered for a very long time from severe schizophrenia.  I recently turned 28.  My world began to unravel in college.  With an incapacitated mind I was forced to quit.  From the age of nineteen to twenty-four off and on I would lose and regain my life fighting for my sanity.  I fought for two-and-a-half years until I was finally delivered by Jesus Christ our Messiah on July 25, 2009.

The hell I endured to freedom was no easy road.  Everyone forsook me.  Everyone.  Including the church.  There was only one that never deserted me.  And that was Jesus.  He held me all the way through.  Even when I was hospitalized and the demons put me in a coma and was left for dead!!  When I didn’t want to live anymore, God wanted me to live and refused to let me go.

Schizophrenia is a hellish thing.  Only those of us who have been in its grip can truly understand one another.  It cost me my livelihood and relationships.  As I was searching and crying out to God for help, close friends ultimately gave up on me, of whom were “believers”.  I dealt with constant misunderstandings. I faced character defamation, gossip from an entire congregation, abandonment and false judgements by those who claim they understood but were dead wrong.  But I kept crying out to God.  I kept pleading with Him to reveal what was happening.  It is surreal to practically lose your mind overnight and now know why.

Despite the disturbance I grew close to the Lord.  This of course stirred up spirits that had rights tied to my generational line.  You see, schizophrenia is usually passed down the line from the sins of the father.  It takes a fiery persistence to continue offering up prayers and banging on the doors of heaven until the angel tips the bowls.  If you ask the Father, shall He give you a stone?  Absolutely not.

I kept banging and asking, and banging and asking until He answered and opened the door.  The inferno of psyche was so unbelievably torturous it was uncanny.  Quite honestly, I did not want to make it through.  To be martyred would have been sweet.  And I do not say that lightly.

I was on a run for my very life from Satan and his hordes.  The battle to get free was so intense, medically speaking I should not be alive.  But Hallelujah!  We who have been adopted by the precious blood of Jesus do no not belong to the medical field – we belong to Jesus Christ of Nazareth!  I am a walking miracle, dear ones!!  I searched high and low for someone who cared enough to fight for me and with me.  Brethren of three years deserted me and left me for dead.  Literally.  Then Brethren took me and prayed for me in their home the first time I met them.

For two-and-a-half-years, I stared hell in the face.  I had to bite the bullet in many crippling situations and go from place to place receiving deliverance here and there because I was such a mess;  people who were practising deliverance thought I must have done something so bad that they didn’t want to touch me.

I was tortured in the psychiatric units by physicians of whom I am certain were Satanists.  I was locked into solitary confinement in a cold square space with nothing but a flimsy hospital frock on.  However, angels were assigned from heaven and I was supernaturally delivered out of the hands of the wicked.

What got me through all of this?  It’s a simple answer.  I held on tightly to the robe of Jesus.  Though I wanted to go to heaven, I couldn’t.  It wasn’t my time.  I was given a promise from God that gave me the will to live.  He promised if I would just hold on He would give me a family, that which I never had – and wanted.  So I refused to give up and give in to Satan and fought for it.

This is the point, dear friends.  The blood of Jesus Christ is alive and powerful.  It is sufficient and doesn’t need any medical tweaking.  It is your only hope.  Don’t give up.  You know why?  Because of this glorious truth and one of my favorite passages... “And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it!”  Colossians 2:15.  Oh, hallelujah!  All glory to the Lamb of God who overcame the enemy and bought us back!  How sweet is His victory!  He is always steps ahead of our enemies plans and there is nothing He does not see.  He is in total control.  He sees you and your pain.  He has not forgotten you.

Listen!  I can honestly say, I have suffered the loss of all things.  In every area.  There are moments I can’t bear to think of all that’s happened to me.  Time being the most invaluable.  I never got to be 18,20,21,22,23,24.  Formidable years.  Time froze and stood still and many years I don’t remember.  But one thing I do and will continue to set before me.  This world is not my home and I must press forward with what remains and fight for others.  I have resolved to forget what lies behind and press onward.

“I do not consider, brethren, that I have captured and made it my own yet;  but one thing I do it is my one aspiration;  forgetting what lies behind and straining to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the supreme and heavenly prize to which God in Christ Jesus is calling us upward.  Philippians 3:13-14.

I trust the Lord with the entirety of my life.  Whether I live or whether I die, I am His.  He has delivered me from the power of darkness and translated me into His glorious kingdom of light.  I am forever indebted to Him and tears well up as I write to you because I know that what He has done for me He can do for you.  He is no respecter of persons and loves his children all the same.

 freedom - bethany behney

Bethany jumping for joy after being set free by Jesus from schizophrenia.

peter-laue-revelation-12-11I thank our Father for everything.  I would not want to do it again, but what I have gained from the vestibules of heaven can never compare to any earthly thing.  For what have I gained?  Christ Himself!  I have been set free from death and sin!  GLORY.. GLORY..GLORY!!!   I could never have gained such intimacy with Jesus - wisdom, knowledge, and understanding I now possess.  Such are the acquired gems which only suffering can buy.

Jesus came to destroy the works of the enemy.  I will fight against Satan in the strength of Jesus with all I have until my last breath for what he did to me - and because I have pledged myself to heaven.   Keep your head up and look up for our redemption is drawing nigh and is closer than it has ever been.   If I can do it, you can do it.  I had no money, no support.  And I am alive and free ... completely free!   “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony”, Revelation 12:11.  Jesus Christ alone is your source and He is never empty.  He will never let you go.  I send you my love.  Even so come Lord Jesus!  Amen.   In Jesus Bethany Behney

BETHANY WRITES ABOUT THE NEED FOR CONTINUAL PERSEVERANCE TO DEFEAT SCHIZOPHRENIA


At the number 4age of 22 Nick Griemsmann was led astray by a cult. The downward spiral that followed led to a battle with mental illness, but his deliverance from "incurable" schizophrenia stands to testify of the power of being God's friend.

  Nick Griemsmann

SID: Welcome, welcome to my world where it's naturally supernatural. My next guest had incurable "schizophrenia." He was touched by the power of God, set free and then became an administrator in the institution he was hospitalized in, 50 employees under him. Now I asked my personal doctor, Dr. Dietry, last night a question on the phone. "He went off all medicine, all medication, Doctor. To your knowledge, what happens to a schizophrenic that takes no medicine?"

DOCTOR: That's a good question. It's an unbelievable phenomenon, schizophrenia. When you come off medication, provided the medication was helping in the first place, you get an extra [unintelligible] a spike of hallucinations, ideations and delusions. It's not a very pretty sight.

SID: Have you ever heard of someone that's diagnosed with schizophrenia? Oh, I forgot one more thing. In a few years, he was supposed to be catatonic. That was the diagnosis. A thousand pages of diagnosis, Doctor. Have you ever heard of such a thing?

DOCTOR: Personally, I have never seen anybody come off of medication and be normal.

SID: Well but I have to tell you, Doctor, he is not normal according to the world. He is normal according to the Word of God. So Nick Griemsmann was raised in a secular home. His father left at age, when he was age eight. He got addicted to pornography at 10. At 21, he was a full-blown alcoholic and he was a bartender. But at age 23, you know, we take a lot of things for granted, at age 23, he's an alcoholic, he's a drug addict, he's a mess. I'm just saying it, Nick. And he gets a little tract about the Messiah, and he calls the person on the phone, because there was a phone number on this tract. And what happened?

NICK: The woman on the phone, she was really nice, and she asked me a question, she said something about, "Are you, have you received Jesus?" And I asked her, "What does that actually mean because so many people tell me different things about Christianity and I was studying different religions like Islam and Judaism, different sects in Christianity, and things like that. And so, "What does it really mean to receive Jesus?" And she said, "It's easy. The Bible says you can confess Jesus as Lord and he will come into your life." And so I said this simple prayer and he came into my heart, and totally changed me. 

SID: What happened to your drug addiction, your alcoholism?

NICK: When I said this prayer, it was so incredible. I still remember it like it was yesterday. I was on the phone with her and I prayed this simple prayer of faith. I had just faith in God at the time. I said the name of Jesus. And the moment I said the name of Jesus this liquid love came upon me, and for the first time, I knew I was completely free from all my sin, alcoholism, drugs. I had a sexuality immorality I was into, you know the lifestyle of a bartender, and God completely set me free from that.

SID: You know, only God could do something like that. But then right behind the devil came up to him when that seed was planted, immediately, he came up to him because Nick now wants to live for God. And he goes on the Internet and he finds out there's a place where the guy says he's one of the End Time prophets and they'll give him food, they'll give him shelter, they'll train him. It sounded pretty good.

NICK: Absolutely. I was trying to find a good church and I found this online. And I thought, wow, I can leave all my old friends and leave my family, and all the troubles I used to have, and I can serve Jesus with my whole heart, because I really loved God.

SID: But it turned out to be a cult. The first crack that you saw in this cult was two of the senior members having a disagreement.

NICK: Yeah. One thing that the cult would preach, that they were sinless. They would say that they never sin or anything like that. And I was there and the men, one night they started arguing over something and they were like almost like throwing blows at each other and swearing. And I thought, they're preaching that they're sinless, but it doesn't look like they are sinless. And my heart started going, well maybe this really, maybe what they're telling me isn't all the truth.

SID: But you were so scared because they had this, was it a cassette, that you would have to listen to? And what was the warning it gave you?

NICK: In the cassettes, the prophet, the false prophet, he would say that if we left the church, because they said that they are the one true church, if we left the church it meant that we lost our salvation, blaspheming the Holy Spirit. So as you know, if you're a young person in God and you don't really know anything, I believed it and I was very afraid that if I left or talked to my family, they said my family was of the devil, I couldn't talk to them. And they said that I would go to Hell if I did anything wrong or if I left the church, or said anything about the person in charge there.

SID: But he had such a heart for God. He was crying out and crying out. And one day, he takes off. He ends up in the Nashville Airport. What happened, Nick?

NICK: Well I entered the Nashville Airport and at this time, I started hearing voices in my mind. Before I left the cult, I actually started getting voices in my mind and I thought they were angels, and I thought God was speaking directly to my mind. And so I would listen to these voices. And I was, they would say things and they'd say bad things. And when I was in the Nashville Airport I was going to go to a phone to call my family to pick me up. And the voices came to me and said, "You need to go and you need to make a scene and yell, and scream, and praise God in the middle of the baggage claim area in Nashville Airport." But I really loved God and I thought God—

SID: So you were willing to do anything for God. I wish, even though it was the wrong voice, I wish more Christians would be willing to do whatever God said. So they picked him up obviously. He's diagnosed schizophrenic. He's told in a few years he'll be in a catatonic state. He goes home to be with his family and his mother insists he go to a little Assembly of God Church.

SID: So my guest, Nick Griemsmann, had incurable schizophrenia. Nick, what is like to have schizophrenia?

NICK: Sid, if you could imagine, if you take a vice, a metal vice with spikes in it, and if you take this vice and you put it on your head like a helmet and then you start screaming in your head evil profane things, blaspheming God, you know, different things like that, the blasphemy, the yelling in the head to kill yourself, that there's no hope, and this cap would be on your head, and they tell you that it will never leave.

SID: So you go to this Assembly of God Church, you go up to the altar and someone begins to pray for you. What happened?

NICK: A nice man and his wife, they were praying over me and this spiritual force, I felt it, it lifted out of my head that night. It just lifted out of my head and at that moment I knew, I knew—

SID: What did you actually know? When this spiritual force lifted, what were, did you know?

NICK: Well I knew two things. One, that I was completely healed of schizophrenia at that moment. But two, I knew that there was some sort of evil nest of some type of spiritual force that some of it actually left, and I had hoped that I could pursue Jesus to receive my complete deliverance.

SID: So that was your first hope after all the stuff you went through. Okay. So you, step by step, the Holy Spirit directed you to do different things. I'm going to take you to your parents' swimming pool. What, tell me what the Holy Spirit was teaching you and what you were doing?

“The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.  He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour”.    Luke 4 verse 18
