Commentary By: Gordon King
The world is full of people who are mentally deranged, or as some call it, mentally ill. Many of these people commit horrendous acts of violence against innocent victims. My question is: “Are all of these people actually mentally ill?, or are they perhaps controlled by demonic spirits?”
There could be several reasons for a person to become mentally ill, we do live in a fallen world, and this is one explanation for it. People also become ill due to outside stress, overwhelming situations in their lives, and even by other external sources such as drugs. However, there is another source which I have not mentioned here, the influence and control by demonic spirits.
There are those who commit heinous acts of violence who claim to be mentally ill, but are they really? It is my opinion that they are in fact controlled by evil spirits. Some are led by these spirits, while others are possessed by them.
This is where we find ourselves in the world today, many people performing violent acts, crazy acts, once unthinkable acts, without any remorse or admission of guilt whatsoever!
People on murderous rampages, people running naked in the streets causing mayhem and destruction, people attacking other people as zombies in a “B” rated movie. At what other time in history have we witnessed such insane activity? Perhaps this is how it was during the days of Noah! Perhaps we are seeing the reemergence of activity which made God sorry that He created man.
“The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.”
The LORD is patient, yet there is soon coming a time when He says enough is enough! That day is soon approaching, when the wrath of God is poured out upon a wicked and evil world.
Take a look around you and what do you see? A world which seems to have lost its mind! Not only with the so-called mentally ill, but with the world in general. World leaders making decisions which seem preposterous, ideologies forming which would have our grandfathers turning in their graves! Societies becoming open and accepting of all kinds of immoral activity and values. Christians being deemed and portrayed as wicked and evil.
All of these things are in rebellion towards God, they are acts of insubordination and in allegiance with evil spirits. This is where the world is headed, down a one way street, a street leading to destruction.
There is an evil in the world, an evil which rules the world. This evil is real, and it is attempting to bring down all that is holy and righteous! Being a Christian in this world is very difficult, but one in which we must stand firm in our faith and beliefs.
It’s now past time to put on the full armor of God, do it now before it’s too late! Follow the right path, the one which leads not to destruction, but to eternal life. Follow Jesus Christ!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
