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 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.

Know the Watchman on the Wall (Video)

If we know who the watchman is on the wall, then we will be careful to hear what he says, and if the trumpets are sounded, we will take warning. We must know the watchman on the wall. I will tell you plainly, that I am not the watchman, but Jesus Christ is, and we must listen to His voice alone. If I hear His voice speaking or the trumpets sounding, then I will speak. I will sound the warning. After watching this eye-opening video on my secure website, please share it with others.

Know the Watchman on the Wall

If we know who the watchman is on the wall, then we will be careful to hear what he says, and if the trumpets are sounded, we will take warning. We must know the watchman on the wall. I will tell you plainly, that I am not the watchman, but Jesus Christ is, and we must listen to His voice alone. If I hear His voice speaking or the trumpets sounding, then I will speak. I will sound the warning. Until that happens my friend, we must remain calm, we must remain watchful, and above all, we must listen for the voice of the Watchman. We are confident that God will do nothing without letting His prophets know so that they can sound a clear and decisive warning. The Bible says, “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7). Unfortunately, we are living in a day with many contradicting voices, some saying one thing and some saying another. There is no clear decisive voice but only a multitude of voices creating greater confusion, which has been the devil’s plan from the beginning. The greater the confusion the less we will be able to hear the warning.

This is becoming an even larger problem as we approach the end. The evil world is increasingly reporting and speaking the first thing that comes into their foolish hearts without ever checking their facts or getting corroborating evidence. They don’t spend the necessary time to properly vet their stories nor do they discern what damage it could cause others if the story is not one hundred percent correct. Moreover, they don’t demonstrate that they have any prudence in the matter whatsoever. If they were prudent then they would not be so quick to report or say what they think they know. It appears for the first time in history, everyone has their own little soapbox broadcasting whatever pops into their minds. We have seen the great damage that this has caused. It has destroyed lives, uprooted families, and driven a deeper wedge between political parties. We are seeing how this is also pitting different races and nationalities one against another bringing our country to the brink of civil war.  The tremendously sad part about all this is it’s spilling over into the Christian community, especially the carnal Christians, leading them to do the same. You would think that Christians should know better from their teachings in Holy Scripture. The Bible says, “A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fools proclaimeth foolishness” (Proverbs 12:23).

God has given His children a wealth of knowledge in the Bible along with great wisdom gained through applying His truth to our lives. And for those who have gone on before us, they have shared their wisdom in the Bible for living a godly life in an evil world. God’s children are called to be prudent and not foolish. We know that some information is useful for a warning, for comfort, and for building others up in Christ. On the other hand, some information could be destructive, damaging, and lead others into a greater pit of confusion. Therefore, it’s essential that we only pass on information that’s useful for building others up in Christ, helping them to become all that God wants them to be. We need to share information that truly helps other believers to experience transformation in Christ. It’s also necessary, on occasion, to warn others of impending doom and enslavement by the enemy. However, we mustn’t allow these occasional warnings to drown out our responsibility to grow up in Christ working every moment of every day to put off the old life and put on the new life, straining forward to our ultimate objective of transformation in Christ. Remember dear children, this is only a proving ground for eternal life in Heaven. Walk in the Spirit.

As already stated, Jesus Christ is our true Watchman on the wall. All other sources in the world that attempt to warn us of the dangers that lie ahead are seeing through a glass darkly. They simply don’t have a clear picture of things to come. To rely solely on these other sources will only create greater confusion. Moreover, for those who attempt to integrate these sources from the world with their limited ability to interpret Scripture will also not have a clear picture of those things to come. If these things are professed publicly on social media and the internet it could bring great harm to God’s people. We must listen solely to the true Watchman on the wall, Jesus Christ. As God’s beloved children listen only to Christ, they are also led by the indwelling Spirit to be prudent in the knowledge they receive. This is extremely important! Although His servants may have an idea that’s beginning to formulate in their minds on what they think they see in the world, they have also learned how to watch, remain quiet, and WAIT for the appropriate time to sound the warning.

Why is this so important to watch, to remain quiet, and wait before sounding the warning. God has never called His servants the prophets to guess. He called them to be absolutely sure. We have all heard the story about the wolf and the little boy. He kept sounding false warnings and then when the wolf really came, no one believed him. We can only imagine how disastrous it was as the wolf ravaged the little village. We must be absolutely certain before we sound the warning. Having said that, I am not certain who the beast is, and what he will use to mark his followers, those who will freely worship him. On the other hand, I have been sounding a warning for years now, and only a few are listening. Yet, it’s these warnings that will help us to truly identify the beast. Yes, I am watching everything going on, but mainly I am listening to Christ, our Watchman on the wall. Let me say very clearly that anyone who leads God’s children to put their trust in another person, a government, or an agency is already acting like the Antichrist or the beast of Revelation. I have been sounding the warning for many years that the psychiatric industry is leading humanity to put their trust in the system of the beast to provide for all of their emotional and psychological needs.

Finally, our friends in China have given us this unique kind of virus that’s forcing the entire world into lockdown, which the coming Antichrist will use to his advantage. There is something far worse than the physical effects, other than for our older population, that’s invading our world. There is another pandemic sweeping the planet to rob God’s children of their peace. Social media has become the megaphone for their hearts allowing the entire world to see their deep-seated fears, anxiety, and their inner turmoil. This inner conflict is driving them to chase after one conspiracy theory after another in an attempt to explain their growing emotional and psychological problems, which are ripping them apart. What they long for is peace. They desire peace in this very unusual storm that’s affecting humanity in a way never seen before, but thanks to social media we are now seeing it loud and clear. Lockdown is having its effect! We implore all of God’s children, who are being torn apart by this unseen enemy driving them to the threshold of insanity, to turn back to God alone. We need to empty our minds of all this foolishness circulating on the internet and social media and fill our minds with only Christ’s teachings about rejoicing, moderation, prayer, thanksgiving, and how to reject anxiety so that we can discover the amazing peace that defies understanding (See Philippians 4:7). If we fail to do this then my prophecy will come true and the psychological industry will be overwhelmed causing the government to create an edict that everyone must submit to the will of the counselor before they can reenter the society of buying and selling. On that day we will know and proclaim loudly the identification of Antichrist.
