Millions of people today (globally) are on prescription drugs for stress, anxiety, depression, mood swings, sleep disturbances and countless other reasons.
There are times that medicines are helpful, but the vast majority of times, the medicines merely mask the problem or rather, address the symptom, but do little to target the source or cause of the symptom.
More often than not, many physical problems are a manifestation of a spiritual condition, and/or even a demonic influence or presence.
Please do not misunderstand that statement and read that EVERY physical condition is manifesting a spiritual problem or demonic activity. What is being said is that it IS a reality that QUITE OFTEN it is the case, but not necessarily in every case. I would like to make that very clear.
In my personal case, it was both a spiritual condition and indicative of demonic activity. What started with abuse was going to end up with an eleven (11) year journey into the world of pharmakeia, which is a Greek word, with meanings of sorcery and witchcraft.
The New Testament (written originally in Greek) uses the word pharmakeia (definition mentioned above). From the Torah straight through to the book of Revelation, words such as witchcraft, sorcery, enchantment etc are found, with meanings (as above) but also include words that mean magic, oracle, incantation, secrecy, covertly etc.
Jesus warned of deception in the last days, but few consider the use of pharmaceuticals as part of that deception.
Christians believe that if they are not doing drugs that are psychedelic (LSD, mesc), narcotic (heroin, ICE), hypnotic (alcohol, marijuana, hash).
We are in the end days and with the escalation of events (natural and man-made) people are looking for ways to stay calm. Therein lies the danger. It is said: It is better to be hurt by the truth than to be comforted with a lie.
