The Silent Pandemic of Mental Illness (Video)

The last thing the world needs is another pandemic. Yet, this new pandemic of mental illness has been in the works for over two thousand years when the prophet announced the three woes coming soon upon the world (see Revelation 8:13). In its infancy, long before it was ever recognized as an epidemic, few people suffered from mental illness while even fewer souls were classified as being insane. By the sixth century, this all changed. After watching this shocking prophetic video on my secure website, please share it with others.

The Silent Pandemic of Mental Illness – The First Woe

The last thing the world needs is another pandemic. Yet, this new pandemic of mental illness has been in the works for over two thousand years when the prophet announced the three woes coming soon upon the world (see Revelation 8:13). In its infancy, long before it was ever recognized as an epidemic, few people suffered from mental illness while even fewer souls were classified as being insane. By the sixth century, this all changed. The epidemic was growing exponentially in the East with the first mental hospital constructed in Baghdad, Iraq in 750 AD. By the nineteenth century, the epidemic moved to Europe and then to the United States. With the growing number of mental disorders being cataloged in the “Diagnostic Statistical Manual” the pharmaceutical industry started producing an array of mind-altering drugs to treat every symptom. As the epidemic grew, most people were reluctant to admit to having a mental disorder and they soon became the unseen majority, popping their pills and suffering in silence. This silence caused the closure of many mental hospitals and the rise of numerous counseling centers to handle the sheer number of patients. Mental illness is real, causing a great drain on the world’s economy and the productivity of its workforce. As the world suffers in silence it’s time for God’s prophets to proclaim loudly what’s causing this silent pandemic.

The fallen world has always been good at explaining things away or casting the blame in the wrong place. When we look at the book of Revelation and specifically at the three woes, it’s essential that we don’t encapsulate them into our limited time frame. If we make God’s prophecy start, continue, and stop at a specified time as seen in many prophetic charts and timelines, then we will miss the scope and true interpretation of God’s timeless prophecies. The first woe in the book of Revelation corresponds with the angel sounding the fifth trumpet causing a star to fall from heaven allowing a heavenly personage to open the bottomless pit, clearly the releasing of the demonic hordes from the pits of hell. (Read Revelation 8:13-9:2). The ensuing verses describe in graphic detail what comes out of the pits of hell to torment fallen humanity causing the pandemic of mental illness. The Bible says, “And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power” (Revelation 9:3). Locusts throughout history have brought forth devastating plagues because of their behavior to swarm with millions of others destroying everything in its path and also causing the sky to grow dark by blocking out the sun’s light and giving rise to unprecedented fear.

In the next verse (See Revelation 9:4) the locusts are commanded not to follow their natural instinct to destroy the grass, the trees, or any green thing. Their primary target is only those who have turned away from God and are NOT marked with His heavenly seal. The Bible says, that every true believer is sealed with the promised Holy Spirit (See Ephesians 1:13). On the other hand, all of fallen humanity will be affected by this woe being sent from heaven that’s causing the pandemic of mental illness. These locusts swarming upon fallen humanity, metaphorically speaking, will create sudden and deep darkness in a person’s life. Those suffering from mental illness have indicated their great struggle to concentrate, stay focused, and to see their way going forward as if they were in a deep fog. In many cases, they have experienced an unwillingness to continue working or even having a desire to leave their beds. Many others struggle to walk in both kingdoms, the kingdom of God, and the kingdom of fallen humanity steeped in the grossest of immorality, driving them in one direction and then another. For some, the darkness in their souls has turned them further away from God leading them to dabble in the black arts and satanic rituals seeking to fill the void left in their tormented souls.

The Bible continues to describe these demons from hell sent to torment fallen humanity by indicating that these locusts have tails like a scorpion that will sting their victims and torment them for five months. Although the five months was selected because that’s the normal season for locust, from May to September, symbolically it could last the entire life span of a human.  (See Revelation 9:5, and 9:10). This amazing apocalyptic language describes in graphic detail what these evil hordes of demonic invaders can do to fallen humanity for rejecting their Creator. In recent studies, the scorpion causes great pain to their predators, not to kill but to drive them away. The scorpion’s sting is rarely fatal. For the human, the pain from a scorpion is extremely painful because the venom, consisting of a variety of different toxins, magnifies the pain receptors in the brain causing intense pain. In the same way, mental illness can cause intense pain that’s not always observable but very real as many suffer for years in silence. Critical symptoms of a scorpion sting can consist of muscle twitching, drooling, and sweating. It’s quite remarkable, that these are the same symptoms often seen in mentally ill patients who are on the threshold of insanity. The scorpion was specifically chosen by God’s prophet to demonstrate how its sting relates so closely to these symptoms of mental illness.

There are many facets to mental illness causing a torrent of behavior problems, where their actions are beyond just strange. Their behavior is capable of causing great harm to others as well as to themselves. There is also a litany of both aggressive and repressive emotions from the sudden outburst of crying to unhinged anger and to the damaging effects of buried emotions. Perhaps the greatest and most damaging emotion is fear. They have a fear of living or facing another day. They have a fear that others might know their true condition. They fear that others will know of their hourly struggles to maintain a rational mind without the constant onslaught of stress, anxiety, depression, and a host of other psychological disorders. They fear that others might discern their horrible thoughts that once shocked their own sensibilities but now have full reign. Their demonically inspired thoughts can come with no warning and at any time or in any place, which can lead them to display a glazed-over look in public. The Bible says, “And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them” (Revelation 9:6). They say that mental anguish is the greatest pain of all, driving people to the threshold of insanity with constant thoughts of committing suicide.  This silent pandemic of mental illness is spreading at an alarming rate, that’s also spilling into the streets of America.

Let’s be very clear, this is a demonic invasion. The Bible goes to great lengths in the following verses, of this eye-opening prophecy, that this is an unseen enemy that will attack the minds of fallen humanity with unrelenting vengeance. Before we proceed, read carefully Revelation 9:7-11. Notice what it says in the last verse, “And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon” (Revelation 9:11). The name “Abaddon” literally means destruction, which is exactly the intent of this demonic force. He is bent on the destruction of the mental faculties of fallen humanity, driving them further and further away from any semblance of a rational mind. Whereas the literal meaning of “Apollyon” is to destroy. This is his ultimate goal. When the mind is destroyed of even the most beautiful people there is nothing left but a hollow shell grasping for the simplest meaning of life and their intended place in it. There is nothing more horrifying than to lose one’s mind unable to make rational choices or intelligent decisions. There is nothing more fearful on this earth than to be alive in the body but mentally dead and on the precipice of insanity. This silent pandemic of mental illness is real and much worse than any virus.

The good news is this condition can change. It’s not fatal. The world, however, does not have a remedy. There is no vaccine for this pandemic. Counseling will not work. Drugs will not work. Attempting to cast out Satan will not work. Becoming an expert in spiritual warfare will not work. Let me be very clear mental illness is real for fallen humanity. As a Christian counselor for many years, I truly sympathize with them and understand their psychological struggles and their deep emotional pain. I know the world is trying its best to fight this pandemic allowing the population to return to a sense of normalcy. Even at their best though, the fallen world can no more defeat this pandemic of mental illness than it can defeat the wrath of God being poured out on unrepentant humanity. The only course of action in overcoming either is to turn back to God and recognize Him as both your Creator and your Savior. Cry out to God now in heartfelt repentance asking Him for forgiveness for turning your back on Him and loving the things of this world. Believe the Gospel that God’s Son, Jesus Christ, died on the Cross for your sins and was raised on the third day to give you a new transformed life. Once you are sealed by the living God, you will no longer rest under His wrath, His plagues, or His woes. Praise God! And all of God’s people will rejoice.

The Big Picture Will Shock You (Video)

“We can’t see the forest for the trees;” this is an old saying that has lots of meaning in today’s world. People engaged in the day to day fight cannot see the big picture. People attempting to uncover every new conspiracy theory cannot see the big picture. People who are engrossed with their own problems, cannot see the big picture. The big picture will shock you and literally turn your world upside down. Only a true prophecy from the hand of God can allow you to see the big picture. After this eye-opening video on my secure website, please share it with others.

The Big Picture Will Shock You

“We can’t see the forest for the trees;” this is an old saying that has lots of meaning in today’s world. People engaged in the day to day fight cannot see the big picture. People attempting to uncover every new conspiracy theory cannot see the big picture. People who are engrossed with their own problems, cannot see the big picture. The big picture will shock you and literally turn your world upside down. Only a true prophecy from the hand of God can allow you to see the big picture. In my last article “From the Hand of God” we talked about the whole world reaping the consequences of their unrepentant sins. Today, we will back away a bit allowing you to see the big picture of what’s really happening in the world. To do that, we first need a little history lesson to help this big picture come into focus. Once we see and understand the big picture then we will allow God to direct our path going forward. This will be God’s prophetic word to the Church, to His faithful remnant living in the Last Days. May we all have eyes to see.

We are not unaware of the devil’s schemes by putting the radio and TV in every home garnering their trust by giving them programs in the beginning for the whole family with not even a hint of vulgarity. Step by step the devil would introduce a slang word here and an immoral act there. Then he would allow advertisements of drugs to help them overcome their many problems along with methods of psychological counseling in their movies. Eventually, movies would be full of shocking immorality. Then, in time the brave ones would not only accept the new morality but would venture out of their closets and teach others to do the same. In time the devil would introduce more programming to raise up legislative leaders to demand new laws to accept this new morality. Then the devil would push to remove God from both the schoolroom and the public square. To solidify this new movement, the devil would cause everyone to be connected by the internet, their individual cellphones, and Social Media. This would allow his new disciples to find one another quickly and stand against the opposition. The devil would also enlist the News outlets to fan the flames of discontent and motivate his disciples to perform all manner of lawlessness against the other side. This will bring our nation to the brink of civil war.

As the big picture comes into clearer focus, we are keenly aware of a divided nation on the precipice of being destroyed from within. This is not too unlike ancient Rome who actually fell from within. No, I don’t believe the old devil will allow this inner destruction to continue. In a very short time, he will extend an olive branch to those who claim to speak for the Holy One. He will make great promises to the other side allowing them to worship freely and still have a seat at the table. Once the agreement is reached, he will begin to rule with an iron fist demanding that everyone stay connected to receive their daily updates, his teachings, and specific directions from those in power. Severing your connection will not be an option. In time, your connected cellphone, or another more advanced device, will be used for buying and selling. It will be used to conduct business, to vote, and to control all of your other devices. How integrated this new device will be is not yet known. Everyone’s devices in this nation and around the world will be connected via high-speed internet as more satellites are being launched by SpaceX. “Starlink” will soon become a reality providing internet to every square inch of the globe.

Seeing the big picture on how the devil has been working behind the scenes for many years bringing fallen humanity to this point will shock you. It’s common knowledge that the frog doesn’t know that he’s in boiling water until it’s too late because the heat is turned up very slowly. The devil has been doing the same thing with humanity since the 1950s! Therefore, we must ask the question, “what would God have us to do?” I don’t believe we can fight back by using the weapons of this world. We must listen carefully to what the Spirit is saying to the Church. If we don’t listen carefully and get it right, we will end up with the unseen number and worshiping his image even if we don’t admit it. I firmly believe there will come a point when God’s faithful remnant will disconnect themselves and go offline. There are many things we must do before that time comes, which I have delineated below. Let me be very clear that most will not be able to do it even though they find themselves sinking deeper and deeper into the devil’s web of deception. The longer you wait the more difficult it will become, “Just ask the frog.” Dear children, this is not just another conspiracy theory. Please heed this prophetic warning while you still have time.

So, let’s talk briefly about what we need to do before we go offline and disconnect from the world. Let’s start with the easiest things first and then advance to the more difficult aspects of going offline. I would start by deactivating all of your social media accounts and deleting the apps from your cellphone and computer. This will immediately put a large hole in your life giving you a tremendous amount of time. Once you have rediscovered the joy of having more time for prayers, meditation and serving others, then you are ready to move ahead by deleting all of the news apps that keep you checking back again and again throughout the day. Now it’s time to delete all those entertainment apps from both your cellphone and Smart TV. Yes, this also includes your YouTube app, the biggest contributor to conspiracy theories and false prophecies. If you have gotten this far you are doing great! Immediately you have noticed how much time you have redeemed. The Bible says, “Redeeming the time because the days are evil” (Ephesians 5:16). Clearly, the devil is a consumer of our time.

At this point, it’s essential to do some additional things before moving forward with disconnecting from the world. We must have face to face real relationships with other brothers and sisters who share your quest for disconnect with the world and reconnect with God through the indwelling Spirit. They will also share your desire to walk in all holiness growing from one degree of glory to another (See I Peter 1:16, and II Corinthians 3:18). They will share your desire to help others that you can reach out and touch. They will share your desire to worship our Lord daily through confession, praise, adoration, prayers, and singing hymns. It’s very important that we don’t skip this step before proceeding. God has not called us to stand alone in our struggle against the enemy. This is why Christ established the Church. I know this will be difficult for some who have relied heavily upon Social Media for relationships. Now it’s essential to find a face to face relationships, which is more difficult because you can’t just delete them if you don’t like what they say. We will be forced to bear with them by helping them to overcome their trespass. The Bible says, “Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2).

If you are sincerely working on the previous step, then you are ready for total disconnect with the world. When the requirement finally comes that everyone, without fail, must have a cellphone (or another device) that’s connected to your bank, credit cards, health services, political affiliation, voter registration, and news updates from the current administration, we must be ready. These requirements along with other highly suggested sites must be on every personal device. They will know the moment we go offline. We must not comply. We must disconnect. Paying will be most difficult, if not impossible if we don’t have our personal device. It’s essential that we begin to think about how we will provide for our families. It’s essential that we plan now and not wait to be turned away at the grocery store or the gas pump because we are attempting to pay with cash that’s no longer accepted. The Bible says, “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” (Revelation 13:17). Just remember that every person has their own unique number once they connect to the internet. Furthermore, if we sit staring at an image on our device for any length of time, allowing it to consume our time, it could be considered worship. Prepare now to stand firm and be prepared to immediately disconnect from the world … and reconnect with God alone.

What’s Really Wrong with America? (Video)

If we could open the door and see what’s really wrong with the world and particularly with America, what would it be? We could easily say its lawlessness or the lack of love and acceptance that’s created numerous divisions, which continue to splinter to even smaller groups. Or we could take a bolder approach and say its humanity’s rejection of their Savior, Jesus Christ, that’s causing the problem. All this is true but let me suggest that we use a scalpel instead of a sword to look at an even deeper truth that has adversely affected every single person upon the planet since the fall. After watching the video on my secure website, please share it with others.
