How do we deal with the lunatic spirit? The answer is found in Mathew 17:18…18 And Yahusha rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
We need to follow the examples of Yahusha.
We can not defeat these spirits in our own strength as we see in… Mathew 17:16 And I brought him to thy disciples, and they could not cure him.
We need the strength and power of our Elohim.
YAHUAH gave Yahusha the strength and power to rebuke those devils and cause them to depart.
We do not see Yahusha using drugs to defeat these spirits.
Drugs/medication can sedate, sometimes suppress and or alter the mood of the person but, it does nothing to address the spirit that is causing the problems.
Pray and ask that The Most High YAHUAH to grant you the strength and power to rebuke and cast these devils out.
Mathew 17:17 Then Jesus answered and said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him hither to me.
18 And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.
19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?
20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
What is it going to take for us to understand that, we can not deal with these troubles/devils/issues, the way we were taught by the world?
The Word teaches and shows us how must address these troubles/devils/issues.
We must follow the examples and instructions Yahusha left for us. We must address these issues the exact same way Yahusha addressed it. He is our example.
ALL PRAISES TO THE MOST HIGH YAHUAH FOREVER!!!
