HEALING FROM BIPOLAR DISORDER
While studying Economics, I memorized the following from a book I was reading (I also gave this while delivering my victory and acceptance message during my senior year when voted unanimously by all fraternities – and the independents on campus – for being the “Most Worthless Senior.”)
Our system is depressive manic;
It runs from boom and then to panic.
In view of this it would be wise,
for government to stabilize.
And that knowing the need for both
stability and economic growth,
(the economy) can often be a disappointment,
even during constant full employment!
I’m not sure, but I think that was from a book by J. Sullivan Edwards, titled: Ride the Wild Horses.
Editor’s note: Even though I won the award for being the “Most Worthless Senior,” four years later, while alone in a room, the Mashiach of Israel made me worthy!!! I read a scripture from the Prophet Isaiah in the Tanakh that said; “Come now, and let us reason together, says the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” (Isaiah 1:18) I stood on my bed and lifted my hand to Heaven and said, “Yeshua, I know you’re there, take my hand.” I’ve never been the same since.
Anyway … back to “Our system is depressive manic …” Bipolar disorder is a condition where people alternate between periods of a very good or irritable mood and depression. The “mood swings” between mania and depression may be sudden. Not realized by many people, bipolar disorder begins manifesting between the ages of 15 to 25 and seems to have a genetic relationship, whether inherited or transferred by association.
Let me share some statistics about bipolar disorder (BD):
BD is the fifth leading cause of disability in the world;
BD is the ninth leading cause of years lost to death or disability in the world;
BD victims have a suicide rate 60 times higher than the general population;
BD victims are at higher risk of substance abuse or other mental problems;
BD usually happens to males earlier in life than females.
Mood swings can alternate from the lows of depression to the highs of mania. During depression a person may feel sad, lose hope, and lose interest in activities that normally give them pleasure. Mood shifts may happen a few times a year or several times a day. And, on occasion, mood shifts may happen simultaneously. Most victims of bipolar disorder are treated with medication and / or psychotherapy (psychological counseling). It is the purpose of my teaching here to present you with an alternate method of healing … and one which may be not only instantaneous, but permanent.
First, let me state that lots of people suffering from BD do NOT know they have it, or that they need help. Of those who do know they suffer from the condition, some do NOT want help, especially while they are in a phase of mania. I am assuming that if someone referred you to this podcast or teaching, that YOU need help … or know someone who does.
Bipolar disorder can be casued by any of the following, or a combination thereof:
Associative or learned behavior from a close relative;
Life changes (like childbirth or death of a loved one);
Periods of sleeplessness;
Separation from loved ones;
NOTE: See “Addendum” for manifestations that appear similar to Bipolar Disorder but are the result of different cause.
Let’s start with this premise: Nothing is too hard for the LORD. The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, the Prophet, saying: “ Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?” (Tanakh: Jeremiah 32:27)
In this podcast I am going to teach you HOW to pray for the healing of someone who suffers from bipolar disorder. If YOU are the victim of BD, then just follow the steps and apply them to yourself. Keep in mind, that normally, the person involved must WANT healing; however, it is – at times – possible to bring complete healing to a person who does NOT want it, and they can be FREE from the affliction. This is usually the case where demon oppression, or possession, is involved. It is no more difficult of a case for the LORD than any other type of demonic activity.
Follow these steps:
Tell the person that G-d loves them. Explain to the person how Yeshua (Jesus) paid not only for their sins, but also their sickness, disease, pain, and disorders when He shed His life’s BLOOD on the cross-stake. (You may want to read Isaiah Chapter 53, verses 4-6 and Matthew Chapter 8, verses 16-17 to them.)
Lead the person in a prayer of wholeness. Have them pray this prayer: “G-d in Heaven, I ask you to forgive my sins and to wash me clean in the BLOOD that your Son, Messiah Jesus, shed for me on the cross-stake. I ask Jesus to take control of my life – to be my Lord – and to HEAL me.”
NOTE: If this is a serious case of demonic activity, then lay your hands on them and bind Satan and his hosts in the name of Jesus (Yeshua). Cast the demons out and command Satan and his demons to “cease and desist” their activity in this person: to leave and never come back. Pray a prayer like this:
“Satan, in the name of Jesus I bind you and your spirits who are afflicting this person and command you to stop this affliction, and to leave and never come back. I break your hold on them in the name of the LORD and speak Messiah’s BLOOD against you and over this person.”
Give the person a Bible and tell them to read in the Brit Chadashah (Hebrew New Testament) starting with the Gospel of John. Follow up with them three (3) times a day – or whatever is convenient – by phone and / or email and give them healing scriptures.
Take them to Synagogue or Church and to small group Bible studies.
Then … teach them HOW to pray for others!
Before you leave them, tell them that IF they want “SUPER HIGHS” along with POWER to serve the LORD, to ask G-d to baptize them in the Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit). You may want to pray for them right there and lead them into the Holy Spirit Baptism.
I did NOT cover this in the podcast, but lots of people who truly know the LORD have similar manifestations of Bipolar Disorder. In the cases I have counseled this has usually been traced to one of two sources that caused the condition:
The person made a KEY decision based upon inaccurate input. That is, the felt what they were considering was the will of God for them. They had missed God … usually … because they were NOT reading His Word, the Holy Bible, and seeking to know His will. In other cases they were unduly influenced by other people.
They made a decision and even though they later did NOT have peace about it, “stuck” with that decision because they did NOT want to be “double minded” (an unstable person) according to the scripture in James Chapter One, verses 5-8.
THE ANSWER: If you are walking with the LORD in daily prayer and Bible study, follow your heart. What is your human spirit (the inner man, the heart) saying to you as the Holy Spirit leads you?
For help with this, go to the following teachings:
If You’re NOT Sure … Don’t!
Follow Your Heart
God richly bless you on your journey of wellness!
