Fighting For My Sanity Was A Life-and-Death Struggle

by Guest Writer Peter Laue
from Pagosa Springs, Colorado, USA, the founder of and also a partner and supporter of Pray Until Schizophrenia Heals.


THIS WEEK’S BIBLE READING IS LUKE CHAPTER 23:  Selected Verses 26-56 – The Crucifixion:  As they led him away, they seized Simon from Cyrene, who was on his way in from the country, and put the cross on him and made him carry it behind Jesus.  A large number of people followed him, including women who mourned and wailed for him.  Jesus  turned and said to them, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me; weep for yourselves and for your children.  For the time will come when you will say, ‘Blessed are the barren women, the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!’  Then “they will say to the mountains, “Fall on us!” and to the hills “Cover us!” For if men do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?” ’

Two other men, both criminals, were also led with him to be executed.  When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him, along with the criminals – one on his right, the other on his left.  Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.

The people stood watching and the rulers even sneered at him.  They said, “He saved others: let him save himself if he is the Christ of God, the Chosen One.”

The soldiers also came up and mocked him.  They offered him wine vinegar and said, “If you are the king of the Jews, save yourself.”

There was a written notice above him, which read: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.

One of the criminals who hung there hurled insults at him:  “Aren’t you the Christ?  Save yourself and us!”

But the other criminal rebuked him.  “Don’t you fear God,” he said, “since you are under the same sentence?  We are punished justly, for we are getting what our deeds deserve.  But this man has done nothing wrong.”

Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”

Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.”

Jesus’ Death:  It was about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until the ninth hour, for the sun stopped shining.  And the curtain of the temple was torn in two.  Jesus called out in a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.”  When he had said this, he breathed his last.

The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and said, “Surely this was a righteous man.” When all the people who had gathered to witness this sight saw what took place, they beat their breasts and went away.  But all those who had followed him from Galilee stood at a distance, watching these things.

Jesus’ Burial – Now there was a man named Joseph, a member of the Council, a good and upright man, who had not consented to their decision and action. He came from the Judean town of Arimathea and he was waiting for the kingdom of God.   Going to Pilate, he asked for Jesus’ body. Then he took it down, wrapped it in linen cloth and placed it in a tomb cut in the rock, one in which no-one had yet been laid.  It was Preparation Day, and the Sabbath was about to begin.

The women who had come with Jesus from Galilee followed Joseph and saw the tomb and how his body was laid in it. Then they went home and prepared spices and perfumes.  But they rested on the Sabbath in obedience to the commandment.

Peter Laue

Fighting for my sanity was a life-and-death struggle. It was a struggle that lasted many years. I saw things and thought things that caused my mind to resemble a courtroom in continuous session. Sometimes I was the accused, sometimes the accuser. At other times I was the judge or jury. My thought process was compelling, relentless, emotionally charged, exhausting, and totally unproductive. For a brief period I was on medication. It did not solve my problems, but it may have kept me from doing something stupid. For this I am very grateful. Much like an aspirin, it provided temporary relief for a bad headache. But it was the Word of God and the grace of God that eventually created order out of chaos. Only as I believed the Word and obeyed it, was peace and order restored to my mind.

The significant turning point came when I became convinced that God was not the author of my accusing, confusing, grandiose, and tormenting thoughts and emotions. When I began to police them and adopted a militant posture, I began to heal. Healing came gradually. I learned to identify my enemies more and more quickly and developed a variety of strategies in dealing with them. I cut them off at the pass, so to speak, and did not allow them to gain an inch of ground. After an exhausting battle, I soothed my emotions by playing music like King David might have played.

I discovered that the only way I could be an alert and effective soldier was to do away with all tranquilizers and mind and mood-altering drugs. This strategy is certainly not new, but it was new for me. I never wavered in my decision to throw out all medication that had been prescribed. Mind and mood-altering drugs, both legal and illegal ones, are like chemical bullets that can misfire and cause debilitating side effects. Even innocent-looking sleeping pills can cause havoc. Violent and unpredictable behavior has been traced to the sleeping medication Halcyon. Our personalities can be altered and sabotaged without our knowledge or permission. Enslaved by drugs, we can experience a false sense of security and wellbeing and turn into wimps instead of warriors.

I did not hide in bed, reach for a sleeping pill, cigarette, alcoholic beverage or run to the television when wrestling with raging and ungodly thoughts. I got out of bed in the middle of the night and got dressed. I walked; I marched and I prayed my heart out in a secluded meadow. With all my heart and might I called upon the name of Jesus. Today, many years and many battles later, my life is filled with joy, peace and gratitude. Yet, I am reminded daily to never let my guard down. Adversity continues to be my taskmaster and teacher.

At the time I was hospitalized in 1970 courts could not mandate that mental patients had to submit to drug therapy in or out of institutions. Unfortunately that has gradually changed over the years.  Had that ruling not been in place when I was hospitalized, I would be a compliant patient today, instead of a crusader for the mentally disadvantaged. I realize that these are strong words. Do not accept them or offer them to others unless the Holy Spirit explicitly prompts you to do so. They are not intended to make anyone feel guilty or condemn them for taking drugs, but to serve as a challenge and door to permanent freedom.

On numerous occasions I asked Jesus why this battle for my sanity was so lengthy and difficult. He always replied with these same words:

These battles build character, insight, compassion, perseverance and many other qualities that a courageous soldier and a compassionate physician needs. Peter, you would not have a story to tell if you did not have to battle for your sanity. Because you have been in this lengthy conflict with hell, your uncrucified ego, and the lust of your own flesh, I can trust you with keys and weapons of warfare that you can use and also pass on to others.”

I will quote from one of my favorite authors, Frances J. Roberts, to underscore what I have written. In her book, “Come Away My Beloved,”she writes on page 93:

“You cannot risk giving your thoughts free rein. They will never choose the right path until you bridle them and control them by your own disciplined will. You are master of your own house. You do not have to invite into your mind the foul birds of evil thoughts and allow them to nest there and bring forth their young.

Whatsoever ye sow in your secret thought-life, that shall ye reap. Sow love and kindness, and ye shall be rewarded openly. Sow charity and forgiveness, and ye shall reap in kind. Sow generosity and gratitude, and ye shall reap in kind. Sow generosity, and ye shall never feel poor. Sow hope, and ye shall reap fulfilment. Sow praise, and ye shall reap joy and well-being and a strong faith. Sow bountifully, and ye shall reap bountifully. Sow! ye shall see your seed and be satisfied.”

I am willing to expose my own captivity, my own season of delusional thinking, to be able to convince others that there is a way out. The Book of Daniel, Chapter 4, tells my story and maybe yours also. I can easily place the name of Peter D. Laue alongside the name of King Nebuchadnezzar. The last verse of Chapter 4 could have just as easily read:

“Now, I, Peter D. Laue, praise and glorify and honor the King of Heaven, the Judge of all, whose every act is right and good; for He is able to take those who walk proudly and push them into the dust!” The story of King Nebuchadnezzar is to remind and warn us that God’s penalty for pride may be and often is insanity. We must not think of ourselves more highly than we ought to (Romans 12:3).

You do not have to be a ward of the state for the rest of your life. You do not have to be a prisoner of drugs for the rest of your life. You do not have to make endless trips to a counselor or psychiatrist for the rest of your life. Your mind does not have to resemble a courtroom or smell like a garbage can full of delinquent and unfruitful thoughts, visions, and voices. But you do have to adopt the posture of a warrior. You do have to police your thoughts and emotions, and how you express them.

Our heavenly Father does not give His children a spirit of fear, torment, or confusion. He gives His children love, forgiveness, power, and a sound mind. Systematically sort through your thoughts, visions, and voices and consistently refuse those that are contrary to God’s nature as revealed through the life and words of Jesus Christ. It helps to write down your visions and special dreams and carefully review them from time to time. Do not jump to conclusions as to their meaning. Ask God to help you interpret them. Share them with a trusted friend. Offer to help others sort through their unresolved spiritual experiences and dreams. Listen kindly. If you do not have an answer, say so. Be slow to give advice. A close friend can be of much help by offering his listening heart.

Twenty-five years ago my mind mirrored the word picture taken from the movie “The Ten Commandments” produced by Cecil B. DeMille. When Moses was cast out of Egypt for refusing to bend his knee to Pharaoh, this monologue shadowed his trek through the desert. Moses survived. I have survived and so can you. Allow me to be your cheerleader. Give the gift of victory as your legacy to future generations.

 “Into the blistering wilderness of Shur, the man who walked with kings now walks alone: torn from the pinnacle of royal power, stripped of all rank and earthly wealth, a forsaken man without a country, without a hope, his soul in turmoil. Like the hot winds and raging sands that lash him with the fury of a taskmaster’s whip, he is driven forward, always forward, by a God unknown or a land unseen; into the molten wilderness of Zin, where granite sentinels stand as towers of living death to bar his way.

“Each night brings the black embrace of loneliness. In the mocking whisper of the wind he hears the echoing voices of the dark, his tortured mind wondering if they recall the memory of past triumphs or wail foreboding of disaster yet to come.  Or whether the desert’s hot breath has melted his reason into madness. He cannot cool the burning kiss of thirst upon his lips, nor shade the scorching fury of the sun.  All about is desolation. He can neither bless nor curse the power that moves him, for he does not know from where it comes. Learning that it can be more terrible to live than to die, he is driven onward through the burning crucible of desert, where holy men and prophets are cleansed and purged for God’s great purpose. Until at last, at the end of human strength, beaten into the dust from which he came, the metal is ready for the Maker’s Hand.”

One mental health professional concluded his evaluation of this writer for the benefit of the courts and insurance companies as follows:

“It is my professional opinion that his psychotic processes are still dormant and will be waiting for expression for the rest of his life. Thanks to his preoccupation with fundamental Christianity, his most recent letters to me show a total covering up of this schizophrenic process. I doubt, however, that Mr. Laue could ever assume a job in the traditional employer-employee model. I believe that such stress would be the catalyst for a resurgence of his schizophrenia. Everything should be done to encourage him to remain phobically centered on his Christian endeavors.”

I will conclude with this prayer, “Lord, may all who battle for their sanity, who have had a foretaste of hell on earth, have a preoccupation with fundamental Christianity.”  This preoccupation with fundamental Christianity was the key to my healing and I hereby hand the key to as many as will accept it. To know our God and the purpose for which He has created us is joy unspeakable and full of glory.

World, do not compel anyone to subscribe to your shifting definition of normal! God can never bless such a mindset. Please remember that many of us cannot bloom where we are planted. Please treat us with love and respect and allow us the freedom to be different. Without apology I have adopted this prayer:

“Lord, let my life be Your glorious contradiction to the world’s definition of normal.”

I will close with a poem written by one of those “different” people. Her name is Debi.


I keep my Paint Brush with me, wherever I may go,
in case I need to cover up,
so the Real Me doesn’t show.

I’m so afraid to show you Me; afraid of what you’ll do;
you might laugh, or say mean things;
I’m afraid I might Lose you.

I’d like to remove all my Paintcoats,
to show you the real, true Me.
But I want you to try and understand;
I need you to Like what you see.

So, if you’ll be patient and close your eyes,
I’ll strip off my coats real slow;
Please understand how much it hurts,
to let the Real Me show.

Now my coats are all stripped off. I feel naked, bare and cold.
If you still love me, with all that you see,
you are my friend, pure as gold.

I need to save my Paint Brush, though, and hold it in my hand;

I want to keep it handy, in case somebody don’t understand.

So please protect me, my dear friend,
and thanks for loving me True;
But, please let me Keep My Paint Brush with me,
Until I Love Me Too!


It takes courage to let the “Real Me” show and wisdom to know when not to. Jesus—or Yeshua, if you know the Lord Jesus by that name—is the author of both. I speak and write these words not only to you, but also as a reminder to myself. As I do, they become more and more a part of who I am. The best way I can be a blessing to you is to let the “Real Me” show. I challenge you to do likewise. It’s an essential step towards sanity. To be a blessing to those near and dear to us, we must be so well and so real, that we are contagious in a good way. It’s never too early or too late to become real. Be prepared for a battle if you accept the challenge!

“God creates originals. Satan can only make carbon copies. Am I an original or am I a carbon copy?” I must know.

james stacey aug 09PRAISE GOD!  I am so pleased to be able to commend the amazing testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ in the life of my dear friend, Peter.  His story of fighting a life and death struggle through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit to defeat the hellish bondage of schizophrenia is much like my own story spread over 26 long and weary years.   

What comes through in the details of Peter's amazing freedom in his website  - and in the books he has written - shows what a  great healing and deliverance his precious Lord Jesus Christ achieved in his life.  HOW KEEN WE BOTH ARE TO ANNOUNCE TO THE WORLD THE FREEDOM JESUS CHRIST BRINGS WHERE ONE IN EVERY HUNDRED PEOPLE SUFFER WITH THE DEMONIC ILLNESS OF SCHIZOPHRENIA.   What an audience we have in every nation of the world to spread the unique message that only the Lord Jesus Christ, God's only Son, has the power to defeat this monster of insanity and restore a person to normal freedom again.

We both had to pass through unusual heartache holding on to the Lord Jesus Christ through faith and prayer as He gave strength to endure and fight in the power He provided. Freedom was long in coming but when Satan and demons were finally cast out of our lives it was a breakthrough that brought such a powerful song of praise from within our hearts.

God sent into our lives amazing wives who were key in praying and caring for us.   Peter's dear wife, Rebekah, loved and supported him through a long time of battling the powers of darkness and my own sweethearts, first my dear wife Pam who died in 1981 and my second wife Tina both committed themselves to be by my side in the fight I faced.   Other Christians joined them in a great volume of prayer to defeat Satan.   


(For God loved the world in this way. He gave His One and Only Son,  so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world that He might condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. John's Gospel 3:16-17) 

The purpose of bringing out a Freedom Encourager each fortnight is to highlight the promised hope there is in the Lord Jesus Christ defeating schizophrenia.  Our Weekly Encourager files between 2010 and 2023 contain scriptural advice, insight and help designed to give encouragement to those like yourself struggling for long sought-after freedom – so do make use of the facility provided, asking God to reveal His truth to you from the various messages. May He richly provide all you need to bring you out of the prison house of schizophrenia into His most glorious freedom!!    HE IS ABLE!!  
Let me no more my comfort draw,
From my frail hold of Thee.
In this alone rejoice with awe,

John Campbell Sharp (1819-1885)
       And every virtue we possess,
And every conquest won,
And every thought of holiness,

Harriet Auber (1773-1862)

Not unto us, O LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory,
because of your love and faithfulness. 

Psalm 115, verse 1

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".

Two URGENT WAKE-UP CALL videos from Anne Graham Lotz...

(13mins 42secs)

in which Anne Graham Lotz discusses the Key To America’s Future being in national repentance and “the bottom line is for people to get right with God.”  Asked if she thought we were in the end-times, she replied:  “We are in the end of the end times” stating that the birth pains are all around us calling for urgent prayer for America.

(1 hr 7mins 44 secs)

in which Anne rouses people to see around them in the present world all the signs that are the prelude of the RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH when the Lord Jesus Christ is returning for His redeemed people and takes them to heaven.  “We need to know what time it is in human history as we see all of these things converging.  How can we not see what is going on?”  JESUS IS COMING – so you need to receive God's Son through faith as you ask Him to forgive you and cleanse you of sin before He returns and so make sure of knowing His free gift of eternal salvation. To delay giving Christ your life, will be too late when He comes.  For believers "now is the time to watch and work for Jesus."

An Intimate Message From God To You

Chacko ThomasMr Chacko Thomas (right) is presently a Minister-at-large with Operation Mobilisation.  He served for 15 years on OM Ships Logos, Doulos, and Logos II.  His ministry has taken him to 107 countries in six continents.  One of his few passions is to see the earth filled with the knowledge of the Lord and His values blessing the  nations.

The extracts below are from his Easter 2023 article "JESUS LIVES, JESUS LIVES".
Read the full article here.

The Wonder of His Resurrection:

On that Resurrection morning, before the disciples met the risen Lord, they were shown the empty tomb and the grave clothes that were wrapped around His body for burial. His body was absent but the grave clothes proved that no one had tampered with the dead body. The huge stone was rolled away, so that they could look in and even go in and examine the tomb closely. This was followed by eleven recorded appearances (and disappearances) of the Risen Lord, appearing to varying numbers of believers over a period of 40 days in varying places. Space will not allow me to write about each appearance. But I shall give the relevant references for those who would want to look them up: Mark 16:9; Matthew 28:9; Luke 24:15; 24:34; 24:36; John 20:26; 21:1; 1 Corinthians 15:6; 7; Matthew 28:17; Luke 24:50-51. “They lasted only 40 days and they led, not into disintegration, but to profound joy and wholeness,” observes Rev. Michael Green.

Jesus Said, “Because I live, you shall also live!” John 14:19

Exactly twenty years ago, my wife and I faced the unthinkable. Our son passed away due to cancer. But God met with us. It was time to practice what we have been preaching. We knew, because of what the Lord has done for us, we will see him again before the Throne. So with tears in our eyes and joy in our hearts we said goodbye to our 17 years’ old son. Written on his tombstone are the words of the Lord Jesus “Because I live, you shall also live.” We look forward to the great reunion day.

Jesus Lives!

THIS WEEK’S SELECTED BIBLE READING IS LUKE CHAPTER 18: Selected verses 1-8 - Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared about men. And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’ For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care about men, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually wear me out with her coming!’ ” And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. And will not God bring justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”

The most wonderful thing about believing in the power of prayer is to know that God is on your side.

What wonderful expectation is raised when someone says to you they will commit themselves to pray over an issue in your life which needs an answer.

The Bible speaks about “those who know their God doing exploits for Him”, and great exploits can be achieved through the breakthroughs of persistent, believing prayer!

There is always a costly price to pay in the discipline of prevailing prayer. Too few of us recognise the sacrifice necessary to achieve precious breakthrough in prayer.

The most worthwhile answers in prayer require a level of prayer that takes hold of God with an active faith prepared to pay the price until the answer is secured.

It is this kind of persistent prayer that many born-again Christians like yourself need in order to be set free of schizophrenia.

While some Christians are not too sure if schizophrenia can be defeated by the power of the Lord Jesus through His death and resurrection, others firmly believe that the mental stronghold is no match for our victorious Saviour.

Christians must not abandon helping someone like yourself because the entrenched stronghold of schizophrenia demands such a continuous commitment. Holding out the hope of Jesus for you is of paramount importance - and so to continue fighting for your freedom IS ALWAYS the way forward

A PRAYER OF HOPE FOR THOSE SUFFERING WITH SCHIZOPHRENIA:  “Lord God Almighty, will you hear my prayer and make the sacrifice of your Son, Jesus Christ real to me. Wipe away my sins that were atoned for on the Cross of Calvary by Jesus in order that I might not have to die eternally.  I believe that Jesus took all my sins and my sorrows and made them His very own and  after three days He rose again from the dead and now makes intercession for me.   By the power of His shed blood, I believe I am now set free and opened up to all the resources of His grace and power.  I am looking forward to the day – why not today – when the evil bondage of schizophrenia surrounding my mind is totally defeated.  I ask You, Heavenly Father, to help me drive out the dark, spiritual presence by the light and power of your conquering Holy Spirit’s presence.  I want to know the reality of the promise Jesus made that whoever follows him will not walk in darkness but will have the Light of Life.  Make it happen for me, as I pray in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Amen.

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

This video by Canton Junction from Godtube is sent out to all our website visitors who long for freedom over schizophrenia.

Receive sure and certain HOPE from Jesus Christ that He is moved with compassion to bring you through your present struggles and establish you "back on your feet again" in His victorious life and freedom. 

"If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.  Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free," said Jesus (John 8:31-32).

Canton Junction Back on My Feet Again from canton-junction on GodTube.

james and tina stacey 2011A 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

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!

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.”


 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

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.

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


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
