Dissecting Depression

Scripture: Isaiah 61 v 1 - 3: "The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
2  To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
3  To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified."

In the above three verses Isaiah mentions the words brokenhearted, mourning and heaviness.  He even says heaviness, or depression, is called the spirit of heaviness, which puts it into a spiritual dimension.

Many people suffer from depression and that suffering can be very dark and prolonged for some.  It can lead to suicidal thoughts or even result in suicide for those who know no other way out of the torment it brings to their souls.

We are living in a time where our lives are controlled by an unseen virus.  We cannot even see the smiles on friends or strangers faces because of the necessary masks.  We do not know how long these masks will be needed.  The end is not yet in sight and no real projections can be made.  This is depressing people who don't normally suffer from it, so what its doing to those who live with depression is scary.

The spirit of heaviness is an evil spirit and it is important to find out why it has latched on to people.  There has to be an open door to the dark side that needs to be found and closed before we can deal with the tormenting spirit of heaviness.

We can inherit depression as a family affliction.  In nearly every case of depression there is an occult root.  The Occult is like the dark side of the Moon - hidden, mysterious, inviting to the curious, very dangerous territory for human beings.  Worship of ancestors is a very bad occult door.

There are two main demons that control the occult realm.  Ruling spirits, also called principalities, the main one is Rege who covers the mind and the other is the Kundalini, coiled serpent at the base of our spine.  They have thousands of demons that are despatched to entice, persuade, force or demand people to follow them into darkness.

So what are the things they use to entrap the unwary.  Firstly, Eastern religions which are including martial arts like Kung Fu, Judo, Karate etc.  Plus innocent-seeming exercises like Yoga.  There is even a Kundalini Yoga.  It assists in releasing that demonic power up the spine to meet Rege in the mind.  Then the real games begin.  For them.  Problems for humans.

There was an 8 year old boy in Johannesburg who watched Bruce Lee movies day in and day out.  There came a day when this eight year old boy truly believed he was a Ninja and nothing could convince him otherwise.  He had to be permanently removed from school.  His Father had always suffered from depression and he then committed suicide.  No winners in that family.  

Other doors are books like Lobsang Rampa filled with Buddhist teachings, Books on Hinduism, mysticism, witchcraft, especially books and movies for children.  It plants a seed that ignites in their teens and they secretly join covens at school and get into drugs, spells, magic that opens occult doors very wide and depression rules the roost.

On the other side of the problem there are many churches over the past thirty years that have wandered into false doctrines with hidden occult agendas.  The enemy uses any means to force his way into the church and establish his deceptions.  The biggest of these is the so called Toronto Blessing also known as Catch the Fire.

Truly the only fire they catch is the strange fire of Hell.  They call it the revival but this is not a revival of holiness or repentance.  It is fuelled by the Kundalini and the very same phenomena are witnessed in Toronto meetings and Hindu religious meetings.  The outcome for Christians seeking entertainment rather than holiness is a very slippery slope.  More depression, suicide, damage to lives and they refuse to hear any truth about it.

I wrestled with bringing this message onto today's blog which Jesus gave me in the early hours of this morning.  He sees it as urgent and vital for today so please take heed and share it so those He is seeking to help may read it and allow Him to bring truth and light to their souls because He loves us all.

He says in Isaiah that we need to put on the garment of praise to dispel the spirit of heaviness.
Psalm 149 v 4 - 9: "For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.
5  Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
6  Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand; 
7  To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
8  To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
9  To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD."

Let the high praises be in our mouths and a two-edged sword in our hand!  When we praise God even though we are in desperate despair, that spirit of heaviness starts to remove itself.  And the more we praise, the louder we sing, the faster that sword flashes the faster the evil departs.  

We can bind their kings with chains.  While we are praising God, also bind Rege and the Kundalini in chains.  Separate them from each other so their power is cut off and just keep praising Jesus who is with us in the battle.  Please make sure of being born again before we do this as only then will we be under the full protection of Jesus.

If we feel depression coming on we now know what to do!  First is close every door to the occult and or witchcraft realm.  Ask God's forgiveness and extricate from any activity that keeps this evil alive.  Burn books or any paraphernalia associated with the occult.  Do a complete check that no statues of idols or anything like that is in your home, car or office.  Be ruthless against this evil spirit, it has been ruthless against you.

Things that keep the bad door open are charms, dream catchers, astrology, windchimes, pentagrams, the upside down cross, the ankh, t-shirts with occult symbols up in them.  Some ornaments.  Masonic gear.  African heads, crystals, Moslem prayer mats, rosary beads, birthstone charts with birth elements, and whatever else Jesus may reveal to you.

As you can see it is a big task but the results are worth it, very much worth it.  It can make all the difference to your eternal destination.  Jesus wants to show you how much He loves you.

Prayer:  Heavenly Father, forgive me for opening any occult or witchcraft door that will affect me or my family in very negative ways.  Please cleanse me with the Blood of the Lamb and remove every evil spirit from my life.  Please fill my cleansed home with the beautiful Holy Spirit to teach me and keep us all safe.  We send forth our high praises for Your salvation and put on the garment of praise to cause the spirit of heaviness to depart.  In Jesus' name.  Amen.
