I GAINED A FULLER APPRECIATION OF THE LOVE OF GOD WHEN JESUS CHRIST RESCUED ME A SECOND TIME!

easterTHIS WEEK’S SELECTED BIBLE READING IS MATTHEW CHAPTER 28:  Selected verses  – The Resurrection 1-10:  After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

There was a violent earthquake, for an angel came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.  His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow.  The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified.  He is not here; he has risen, just as he said.  Come and see the place where he lay.  Then go quickly and tell his disciples;  ‘He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee.  There you will see him.’  Now I have told you.”

So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples.  Suddenly Jesus met them.  “Greetings,” he said.  They came to him, clasped his feet and worshipped him.  Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid.  Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee;  there they will see me.”

The Great Commission verses 16-20:   Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go.  When they saw him, they worshipped him;  but some doubted.  Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”           

james stacey aug 09Have you ever been swept off your feet in wonderful amazement at the magnitude of the love of God shown to you over such a long period of your life? This wonderful blessing is gripping my life right now spanning over 68 years as I have contemplated the mighty acts of God starting way back in 1956 when the Lord Jesus Christ became my personal Saviour through accepting His forgiveness of sin.  That FIRST RESCUE by Him was the best day of my life as I responded to the conviction of the Holy Spirit.

Add to that life-changing encounter an amazing SECOND RESCUE from the depths of hell of 26 years of schizophrenia – occurring 34 years ago on the 2nd May this year – and you have an impressive testimony of the unfailing faithfulness of God who has indeed promised “I am with you always, to the very end of the age”.

You may be having doubts about how powerful is the love of God and ask if the Lord Jesus Christ can indeed hold on to you no matter how distressed in mind and battered in life you may become!  I stress with all the emphasis I can muster that His victorious love is MORE THAN YOU WILL EVER NEED.

For more than a third of a lifetime the power of God held me in His hand as I struggled to understand the onslaught that disrupted my mind and life.

There were deep waters to pass through and rivers of grief too devastating to describe, but now to have achieved so many years of restored freedom by my Lord Jesus Christ, I can say He was with me in it all.

In this message, I want to emphasise as much as I can the worthwhileness of surrendering your whole life to the LORD JESUS CHRIST.  He is the only God!  There is no other!  If your life is in a mess, lacking direction and purpose and deep down within your spirit you cry out to know the peace that passes all human understanding, then why not turn to Christ? You have so much to obtain in discovering and knowing JESUS, starting with receiving His wonderful free gift of eternal life.

Let’s seek to focus on some excellent truths bringing life, strength and blessing to us found in the last phrase in our Lord's Great Commission to his disciples before He ascended back to heaven – “…And surely I am with your always, to the very end of the age.”

BECAUSE JESUS CHRIST PROMISES TO BE WITH US, HIS LOVE HAS THE POWER TO CHANGE EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING, INCLUDING THE REALITY OF THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED, FORGOTTEN AND MARGINALISED.  HE ALSO HAS THE POWER TO BREAK EVERY SATANIC STRONGHOLD FOUND IN THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS SINCE ALL AUTHORITY IN HEAVEN AND EARTH HAS BEEN GIVEN TO HIM.

What a wonderful Saviour is Jesus my Lord!  Words cannot adequately describe the indescribable beauty of Jesus!  In Solomon’s Song verse 16, it says:  “Yea, He is altogether lovely” – and indeed He is.  Commenting on this, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, says:  “The superlative beauty of Jesus is all-attracting;  it is not so much to be admired as to be loved.  He is more than pleasant and fair, He is LOVELY.  Surely the people of God can fully justify the use of this golden word, for He is the object of their warmest love, a love founded on the intrinsic excellence of His Person, the complete perfection of His charms.

“Look, O disciples of Jesus, to your Master’s lips, and say, “Are they not most sweet?  Do not His words cause your hearts to burn within you as He talks with you by the way?  Ye worshippers of Immanuel, look up to His head of much fine gold, and tell me, are not His thoughts precious unto you?"

WE NEED TO BE FILLED WITH THE WONDERFUL LOVE OF GOD TO EXPERIENCE ITS GLORIOUS DEPTHS AND THE AWESOME CHANGE JESUS CHRIST BRINGS INTO EVERY AREA OF OUR LIVES.   HAVING FAITH IN OUR SAVIOUR – AND KNOWING WE POSSESS FAITH – WILL BRING ABOUT DEEP DOWN SATISFACTION OF A LIFE SURRENDERED TO OUR LORD AND MASTER!

I loved the LORD JESUS CHRIST ever since He became real as a teenager of 14.  For eight years, I grew in His love and possessed a desire to serve Him.  That desire was both hindered and frustrated with the first stirrings of schizophrenia in my life, though I had no idea what was going on.

When full-blown schizophrenia descended one day – nothing less than the unleashing of a dark Satanic spirit over my life – I was thrown on my LORD seeking how to cope and understand what was happening.

For the whole length of 26 years of schizophrenia bondage, the lack of love for the LORD in my heart was deficient because of being pre-occupied with struggling to live because of a mental bondage present every day.  You’ll find details of my life in the book, Schizophrenia Defeated, elsewhere on this website but I want to point out that JESUS CHRIST was with me and aware of everything I was going through.  It’s the same with your life.  If you are committed to JESUS take heart that HE will hold on to you and you will never be forsaken.  HE HAS A PLAN FOR EVERY LIFE SURRENDERED TO HIM.

On 2nd MAY, 1990 when the LORD JESUS CHRIST enabled me to take authority over the strong powers of Satanic darkness which had harassed me for more than a third of a lifetime my mind was freed, completely freed and I was so grateful to my Lord.  I knew I had returned to life as it was meant to be.  My heart was overflowing with so much gratitude to Christ.  There was now no hindrance in the way of loving and knowing Jesus Christ each and every day.  That’s just what I want to keep on enjoying.

Let’s make it our business to allow JESUS CHRIST to have every part of our lives in total, full surrender and live in the blessing of His most wonderful gift of eternal love all our days….and share His amazing love with all wherever we go.  Amen

Stewart HillsCelebrating the publishing of the Weekly and Freedom Encourager over the past 15 years on our website, www.schizophreniadefeated.com I wish to record my grateful appreciation to website director, Stewart Hills (right) who has faithfully employed his skills and work over that period in promoting the good news about our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Stewart, who is self-employed in website, computer work and project management, has also given tremendous support in carrying out the design of the website in all respects and fulfils his business motto of offering “Precise solutions creatively delivered.”

“We have enjoyed good Christian fellowship over the years ever since we first got to know each other when Stewart worked in the office at the World Prayer Centre in Birmingham.  It has been such a great encouragement over the years to have his expertise and support on hand in the ministry of reaching schizophrenics with the message that the Lord Jesus Christ is the way out of this mental stronghold,” says James.  


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".

BLOWING THE TRUMPET -
JESUS IS COMING

(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."

FATHER'S LOVE LETTER
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!


FREEDOM ENCOURAGER 10 & 17 MARCH 2024

Pentecost border - Jan 2022

THIS  WEEK’S  SELECTED  BIBLE  READING:  JOHN CHAPTER 9

Jesus Heals a Man Born Blind: As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth.  His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”

“Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.  As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me.  Night is coming, when no-one can work.  While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”

Having said this, he spat on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes.  “Go,” he told him, “wash in the Pool of Siloam” (this word means Sent).  So the man went and washed, and came home seeing.

His neighbours and those who had formerly seen him begging asked, “Isn’t this the same man who used to sit and beg?”  Some claimed that he was.

Others said, “No, he only looks like him.”

But he himself insisted, “I am the man.”

“How then were your eyes opened?” they demanded.

He replied, “The man they call Jesus made some mud and put it on my eyes.  He told me to go to Siloam and wash.  So I went and washed, and then I could see.”

“Where is this man?” they asked him.

“I don’t know,” he said.

The Pharisees Investigate the Healing:  They brought to the Pharisees the man who had been blind.  Now the day on which Jesus had made the mud and opened the man’s eyes was a Sabbath.  Therefore the Pharisees also asked him how he had received his sight.  “He put mud on my eyes,” the man replied, “and I washed, and now I see.”

Some of the Pharisees said, “This man is not from God, for he does not keep the Sabbath.”

But others asked, “How can a sinner do such miraculous signs?”  So they were divided.

Finally they turned again to the blind man, “What have you to say about him?  It was your eyes he opened.”

The man replied, “He is a prophet.”

The Jews still did not believe that he had been blind and had received his sight until they sent for the man’s parents.  “Is this your son?” they asked.  “Is this the one you say was born blind?  How is it that now he can see?”

“We know he is our son,” the parents answered, “and we know he was born blind.  But how he can see now, or who opened his eyes, we don’t know.  Ask him.  He is of age; he will speak for himself.”  His parents said this because they were afraid of the Jews, for already the Jews had decided that anyone who acknowledged that Jesus was the Christ would be put out of the synagogue.  That was why his parents said, “He is of age; ask him.”

A second time they summoned the man who had been born blind.  “Give glory to God,” they said.  “We know this man is a sinner.”

He replied, “Whether he is sinner or not, I don’t know.  One thing I do know.  I was blind but now I see!”

Then they asked him, “What did he do to you?  How did he open your eyes?”

He answered, “I have told you already and you did not listen.  Why do you want to hear it again?  Do you want to become his disciples, too?”

Then they hurled insults at him and said, “You are this fellow’s disciple!  We are disciples of Moses!  We know that God spoke to Moses, but as for this fellow, we don’t even know where he comes from.”

The man answered, “Now that is remarkable!  You don’t know where he comes from, yet he opened my eyes.  We know that God does not listen to sinners.  He listens to the godly man who does his will.  Nobody has ever heard of opening the eyes of a man born blind.  If this man were not from God, he could no nothing.”

To this they replied, “You were steeped in sin at birth; how dare you lecture us!”  And they threw him out. 

Spiritual Blindness:  Jesus heard that they had thrown him out, and when he found him, he said, “Do you believe in the Son of Man?”

“Who is he, sir?” the man asked.  “Tell me so that I may believe in him.”

Jesus said, “You have now seen him; in fact, he is the one speaking with you.”

Then the man said, “Lord, I believe,” and he worshipped him.

Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.”

Some Pharisees who were with him heard him say this and asked, “What?  Are we blind too?”

Jesus said, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains.”

It is a matter of great rejoicing when faith-filled Christians engage in helping fellow-believers achieve freedom from the stronghold of schizophrenia.

When compassion and faith move out in Christ’s resurrection power, mighty exploits are performed in this area of unprecedented need.

God is most certainly glorified when the lives of captives are delivered and healed from demonic power and strongholds.  The establishing of the kingdom of God and the defeat of the kingdom of darkness is what Jesus came to achieve.

The word is increasing and bursting through into both the world’s psychiatric medical community and inside the global church of Jesus Christ that He is still delivering and healing hopeless cases.  Christ really did defeat ALL the powers of spiritual darkness ensuring that none of Satan’s strongholds is too powerful to be overcome!

The message of PRAY UNTIL SCHIZOPHRENIA HEALS exists “to send out to every shore” that Jesus Christ is still LORD of all.  No condition is too entrenched and embroiled to baffle and defeat the powerful, victorious love of Jesus Christ that won our freedom on the Cross of Calvary.

HALLELUJAH!  If you are reading this message and feel that these truths are just mere words then let me assure you of the promised hope that ALWAYS REMAINS in the unchanging, eternal words of Jesus Christ.   Never forget, He is able to deliver what He has promised. He still imparts life and that more abundantly – at its best and in all its fullness.

Helping Christians suffering with schizophrenia into freedom has more to do with bringing in the victorious love of Jesus Christ than casting out demons behind the condition.  Schizophrenia is able to be conquered and totally defeated because the love of Jesus is as great as His power and able to achieve mighty victories.

The truth I determined to keep in my thinking during many years of struggling to survive life itself was that I had a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus.  The great fact I reminded myself about  was that Jesus had died for me and had promised that He would never leave me or forsake me, even as powers of darkness took hold of my mind.

You too, no doubt, feel the need to remind yourself of how much Jesus loves you.  In the days when you can’t wait any longer for the Lord to show up and lead you out into freedom – and nothing is happening – cling to the Lord of your life and His promises.  You will come through no matter how difficult a time you have.

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.

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.

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

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.

Jesus replied: “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.” John’s Gospel 14: 23-24

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 2024
“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
