This article assumes you have had the misfortune of becoming close companions with the above two words.
It is long in the hope that seeing these lives changed and exactly what my Master can do that you may realise that this is exactly the doctor that you have been looking for.
You may be concerned that you are too far gone, you may think you can never be in your right mind again, able to hold down a lasting relationship, walk about without the stabbing pains of fear caste by peoples eyes, be free of your nervous ticks and weird reactions, you will always be a freek laughed at in the sides of peoples glances, as you turn away. There is a God who controls the mind, and can realign the most twisted brains.
Even in this life he is able to put your mind straight. Though ultimately we look forward to the perfect renewal of our minds and freedom from anxiety that can only fully happen in eternity, we have found much relief in the hands of the Master. He is a healer, and he heard our screams in the darkness.
We are going to try and give you some info on this like dis:
- everyone is insane;
- two blokes who could say, 'insanity used to be a friend of mine';
- a lady who had spent years and $$$'s trying to get healed;
- an awesome Doctor holding open session ‘today while you hear his voice.’
everyone is insane
It is fairly clear that we have Departed from the Source, you just have to look around and see that things have corrupted from the way it was meant to be. This state of disorder, of less than perfection, includes every mind on this planet.
Everyone, therefore is a little insane - that is no one has truly returned to the One who is the Source for good. And you know this global craziness is true just by looking at your own family—even the ones who don't take drugs—we all do things that are a little off-key, to say the least. Everyone is really quite strange.
We have even met non-drug people who are more paranoid than most acid-heads we have met.
2 blokes: BLOKE 1
This first man was a King, lately made famous in the Matrix, but in his time, he ruled the world, Nebuchadnezzar is his name. And we start his story at the point at which he sat back in wonder at his kingdom, and said in his pride [and this is a major factor in paranoia, pride]:
“Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for a royal dwelling by my mighty power and for the honour of my majesty?”
While the word was still in the king's mouth, a voice fell from heaven: “King Nebuchadnezzar, to you it is spoken: the kingdom has departed from you [he 'lost-it' big time]! And they shall drive you from men, and your dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field. They shall make you eat grass like oxen; and seven times shall pass over you, until you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever he chooses.”
That very hour the word was fulfilled concerning Nebuchadnezzar; he was driven from men and ate grass like oxen; his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair had grown like eagles' feathers and his nails like birds' claws.
And at the end of the time I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my eyes to heaven, and my understanding returned to me; and I blessed the Most High and praised and honoured him who lives for ever:
For his dominion is an everlasting dominion,
At the same time my reason returned to me, and for the glory of my kingdom, my honour and splendour returned to me. My counsellors and nobles resorted to me, I was restored to my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added to me.
And his kingdom is from generation to generation.
All the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing;
He does according to his will in the army of heaven
And among the inhabitants of the earth,
No one can restrain his hand
Or say to him, “What have you done?”
Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all of whose works are truth and his ways justice. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble.
The book of Daniel, chapter 4 & verses 30 to 37.
Consider how far gone this man was: was he not utterly insane, beyond insanity? Yet everything changed. We know a man today for whom the same thing happened, his mind was broken, but became sharper than it ever had been before, when this King of heaven humbled his pride & restored his reason.
2 blokes: BLOKE 2
Now this man actually met Jesus, and lived some 600 years later than Neb. But again he is worth considering. Think about just how bad he was, just how far he'd gone. Could anyone help him? Are you that bad? And you'll see there is still hope.
And when Jesus had come out of the boat, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no one could bind him, not even with chains, because he had often been bound with shackles and chains. An the chains had been pulled apart by him, and the shackles broken in pieces; neither could anyone tame him.
And always, night and day, he was in the mountains and in the tombs, crying out and cutting himself with stones...
[then Jesus bring the legion of demons out of him, into a herd of pigs which ran into the sea and died]
Now those who fed the swine fled, and they told it in the city and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that had happened.
Then they came to Jesus, and saw the one who had been demon-possessed and had the legion, sitting and clothed and in his right mind. And they were afraid.
Is that not awesome power? No-one could touch this man, but at a word Jesus said him free from the evil which had driven him from among his peers into deepest misery on earth, self-mutilation, isolation, terrible loneliness and evil. And this man set him free.
They had never known power like that you get me, they tell it in the country and in the town, they see the man sitting fully clothed and in his right man at the feet of Jesus, and they recognise absolute power of a category they cannot handle, and they are AFRAID.
Such is the man. But to people like me and you, such power we NEED, you see no-one else could have set him free, any lesser power would not have been enough. He was utterly uncontrollable. It needed his Creator to set him straight and free at last. And then, he never wanted to leave him:
And when Jesus got into the boat, he who had been demon-possessed begged him that he might be with him.
However, Jesus did not permit him, but said to him, “Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how he has had compassion on you.”
And he departed and began to proclaim in the Ten Cities area all that Jesus had done for him; and all marvelled.
The book of Mark, chapter 5 & verses 2 to 20 approximately.
Why did they marvel? cos a man who had once been insane beyond insanity was now clearly in his right mind and saying there was a King in heaven to whom all should bow the knee. And his life was the hammer to his message, they knew there must be some awesome power to have so changed a life, that was beyond all human help and control.
a lady who had spent years and dollars trying to get sorted
Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years, and she had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse.
When she heard about Jesus, she came behind him in the crowd and touched his garment; for she said, “If only I may touch his clothes, I shall be made well.”
Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction [which had incidentally kept her isolated in her community for those 12 years: for, under their law, such a condition meant you couldn't touch anyone else, and any physical thing you touched—like a chair, or door handle would have to be burned].
And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that power had gone out of him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes?”
But his disciples said to him, “You see the multitude thronging about you, and you say, ‘Who touched me?’”
And he looked around to see her who had done this thing.
But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before him and told him the whole truth.
And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”
The book of Mark, chapter 6 & verses 25 to 34.
Again there is no one else who can touch her illness, but just to touch one man. And to receive the confirming word from him, ‘Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.’ It changed everything for her, and at last she came in from the cold. Brothers, sisters, it can be so for you, but ONLY thru this one man, to be truly healed is to have our spirit made at peace with God, and everything works it way outwards from that. To be given a new heart, to have our brains washed clean. We know of no other operator working at that fundamental level.
The heart? Who can give you a soul transplant? A new birth, a new spirit—this is the province in which my Master, Jesus Christ, stands alone as the One and Only dispensary.
this same Doctor of awesome power, is here today
...bottom line end of story.
We know of people today whose minds were once broken and in the gutter. They could not walk down the street without fearing people on the other side of the street were laughing at them, but in Christ everything changed.
Basically if you fear God, you have no other fears, cos if the biggest mother beyond the universe ‘...is for us, who can be against us?’ how can you be afraid? ‘Neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.’
When that man finally pulls the trigger against my head, what can he do but send me to glory? I am safe beyond measure cos my life is ‘hid with Christ’. And when you are untouchable, who can make you afraid?
We still get afraid, don't get us wrong. But that's only cos we have forgotten reality, and we have to remind ourselves: ‘who cares what they think of you, God loves you, and you are safe forever, this is reality, you are not important, it doesn't matter if they think you crazy or a fool, cos this you may be, but God still cares for you and it says: ‘a bruised reed he shall not break, and a smouldering wick he shall not put out.’’ So we know even when our closest brethren cannot ken what gwan, there is a man who knows our exact frame, and one day, will give the leaves for full healing.
