Sandra, I am so sorry to hear of these things that have happened. That is really hard to handle about your mother. I hope the medications are helping you by now. You are in my prayers.

jody, I was dignosed with bi-polar 3-1/2 years ago. As far as I know, I have had no brain damage/drug or alcohol problems. As long as I can remember when pressure built up on me I would cut to make it stop. I found my mother dead 3-1/2 yrs ago and my sisters blamed me I cut to deep (not to kill myself but only the pain) after she was buried I committed myself after aweek there they started me on meds.
---sandra on 6/9/07


6 mths ago thought I could trust the Lord & come off of meds,1 month ago things just kept buildin up,went 7days w/no sleep all I did was work,come home, lay in bed prayin GOD to make it stop it didn't my boss who worked with psyc. pts took me into his ofc. Talk with me,realised that I was on the brink of suicide & helped me to get back on my meds. I thank GOD for his help. Bi-polar is real & real dangerous. My son 13 has it so bad that he is in a treatment ctr to prevent him from harming himself or others

Thanks so much HCA, your words were very appreciated -- just goes to show the Lord uses the foolish things of this world to confound the wise -- Im testimony to that, though in this case Elijah's running away from Jezebel just shows his precious humaness: thanks also for the book, I will order it!
---Prodigal24 on 6/7/07


Bi Polar is an 'imbalance' in a person, period...usually from died or triggered by one or a series of traumatic events, or abuse...children are not born Bi Polar - our unique and individual personalites come with strengths and weaknesses, some cope, some dont etc, BUT renewing the mind in Christ changes much mental illnesses - God uses willing hearts, confusion comes from Satan.

Prodigal24, I understand and see what you are saying, I didn't mean my comment towards you personally. Not at all.
This is for you, Prodigal24.

"Jezebel sent word to Elijah saying, "I am going to crack your skull and spread its fragments from the banks of the Euphrates all the way to the sandy dunes of the Upper Nile River!
---HCA on 6/5/07


The next time that I encounter your big prophesying mouth, I am going to destroy you, any residue of your prophetic decrees, and the God whom you proclaim to serve! Elijah, the next time that you see my face, you and your bipolar disposition -- standing for God one day, hiding under a tree the next, let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of the slain prophets of Baal by tomorrow about this time."
---HCA on 6/5/07


Jezebel said, "I heard what you did, preacher! You'll be dead by tomorrow!" Elijah looked toward the Lord, "Just kill me right now. I can't take the pressure of preaching in the prophetic anymore. I am tired of you nudging me to speak truth to power, to bring revival to a people who do not love you, and to make prophetic decrees to a brother stuck in his situation, dead in his disposition, and chained to his circumstance. Lord, you can kill me right now! I can't take it anymore!"
---HCA on 6/5/07


God is faithful. God will always send you help when you need it. Somebody will always have a word, a hand, or a hallelujah to get you through! Yes, we are often concerned with whether or not we can preach in the prophetic -- the unapologetic Word of the Lord, in the midst of despair. Yes, there are forces out there that are opposed to the will of God for your life.
---HCA on 6/5/07


God will sustain us in God's time. It's the timely God-ordained encounter that enables us to keep preaching!God will empower us and equip us to complete what we have started! We serve a God who will supply our every need! In the midst of disrespect, depression, and dysfunction, we have been called to preach in the prophetic in this present age! By whose authority do you preach? Say with certainty: By the authority of Almighty God!
---HCA on 6/5/07




Prodigal24, that was written by
By Whose Authority Do You Preach?
By Christopher M. Jones
---HCA on 6/5/07


I respect my dear friend that passed whom was diagnosed with By Polar, I doubt that she was a prophet and I don't know that God would use someone confused to convey his message(serious) thats why I suggest the fact that the message you wrote was not fine tuned to the word. I get a little ruffled sure enough I shouldn't but I believe the world is confused enough without some people making Claims based on stories that do not have gods Hallmark on them. The claim must state time/date/detail and come to pass!
---Carla5754 on 6/5/07


What you're describing there would be bipolar disorder with a narcissistic disorder. The two often go hand in hand.
Elevated thoughts and feelings of superior knowledge and revelations about/of God.
---HotelCA on 6/5/07


When we reply with love, that is a sure sign of maturity; the prophetic are God's unique vessels that have already sufferred much in being rejected by those around them, and the wounds from such rejections are bathed in Christ's love.

In their wilderness years they find shelter and healing under the safety of His wings of protection; those years the Lord hides them preparing their hearts, counselled by the Counsellor, healing the broken hearted where they rise up and soar again like eagles.
---Prodigal24 on 6/4/07


Your answer seems faithful enough but I still do not believe or understand one that try to exhalt themselves in the fashion that indicates they have position as a spokes man/woman of God.

If you are going to GLORY glory in the LOrd and I will hear your message from God, Otherwise Your fruits are not finely tuned by the word. The conversation of some claiming to be Prophets Here are near hits and near misses But some are total misses all-together!
---Carla5754 on 6/4/07


Bi Polar is people who are deeply 'reflective', and are prone to the deep things of God -- they are very sensitive to the things going on around them, they need an encourager close to them, one who is secure in Christ's character and has mercy, compassion and patience. Budding prophets are usually this kind -- they see the world very different to others, they need a true shepherd Pastor's heart, that sees their potiential, not their behaviour.

Elijah would be classed as a modern day Bi Polar; the Lord used Him in a mighty way. When the Bi Polar finally realises all their 'deserts' in life, the wilderness years, the ones who rejected them, or never understood them, family and friends rejection etc, were God's purposes to 'train & refine them', and they become secure in God's love -- their bi-polar days will be bliss!!
---Prodigal24 on 6/4/07


Isa 26:3 Thou wilt keep [Him] in perfect peace those who's mind is stayed [on thee]: because he trusteth in thee.
vs4
Trust ye in the LOrd for EVER: For in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:


Isa 55:11
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me Void, but shall accomplish that which i please, and it shall prosper [in the thing] whereto I send it.

That's why I've asked this question, John.
It's everywhere you turn, the school systems, NASA, workplaces(not only the post office), mothers, fathers, it touches all walks of life.
---Forrest on 5/6/07


John, I said that BIPOLAR DISORDER has remained stable not other disorders. I was responding to the part of the question about BIPOLAR DISORDER. I responded to the question in three parts.You are correct that many other disorders are on the rise.

Rebecca D: **Things just happen.** I often agree with you but I must disagree on this one. There IS a reason for the drastic increase in these disorders and the Bible tells us to get knowledge and understanding; and that God's people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
---tracy3346 on 5/6/07


Excellent ? Forrest:
There's an insightful article about this entitled "Are Childhood Vaccinations Dangerous?" on ctsnews dot com... click on the "Health & Home" tab on the left.
I was hearing about the dangers of childhood vaccinations more than a decade ago from Christian M.D.'s. There was enough info. back then to persuade me not to have my children immunized; even before there was a known link between vaccines and autism, and many other disorders.
---tracy3346 on 5/6/07


Jody. You say these illnesses have been stable for decades? Why is it then that you can ask almost anyone over 50 if they know more people now with mental disorders than they did 20 years ago that they will almost all agree there are many more now? I've pastored the same church in the same town for over 20 years and I can tell you that not only are there far more, but far more serious cases than ever before.

Job was inflicted by physical and mental oppression. Did God love him less for that. No?
I know what the questioner is suggestioning and it is not nice.
There is a world of difference between physical and pschological disorders.
---Ed on 5/5/07


Bipolar Disorder has remained stable worldwide for males and females for decades. There is a test much like an MRI or xray that can diagnose brain activity specific to bipolar disorder. The major reason for the rise in the diagnosis of BPD is due to the removal of the diagnosis of Depressive Disorder from the list of illnesses which qualify pts for Federal Disability Income Benefits. Severly impaired but DEPRESSED only ,pts. are being diagnosed with BPD to qualify them or help them keep thier SSI/SSDI.
---jody on 5/5/07


Autism: 2 things: 1) Social Scientist's are differentiating between certain types of what they thought was retardation and recatagorizing to autism. 2) Misdiagnosis of organisity from babies born drug or alchol addicted, severe chemical abuse inutero, or genetic mutation changes in either or both parents due to certain chemical usage or abuse.
---jody on 5/5/07


The APA Diagnostic Diagnostic Manual has doubled in thicknes in the last 3 decades. The new disorders are not illness from a medical standpoint. They are called Personality Disorders, Character Disorders and more. Bahavior problems caused by stepping away from God as a society. Seperate your thinking from illness which is not on the rise (except what has occured as a result of brain damage/changes due to substance abuse,) to learned behavior. This is the time of the End. Read 2Tim 3. The world is crazy!

Remi...Tell that to my nephew whose daughter developed severe reactions after innoculations. She is severely autistic.
---Susie on 5/4/07


There is a reason behind everything. Things just happen to people, such as illness and God has no hand in it nor does Satan. but Satan can cause illness on some people, but he is not to blame for every single illness. Nor is God. Things just happen.
---Rebecca_D on 5/4/07


Federal health authorities and mainstream medical groups emphatically dismiss any link between autism and vaccines, including the mercury-based preservative thimerosal. Last year a panel of the Institute of Medicine, part of the National Academies, said there is no evidence of such a link, and funding should henceforth go to "promising" research.
---Remi on 5/4/07


However,
It's a far piece from the horse-and-buggies of Lancaster County, Pa., to the cars and freeways of Cook County, Ill.
But thousands of children cared for by Homefirst Health Services in metropolitan Chicago have at least two things in common with thousands of Amish children in rural Lancaster: They have never been vaccinated. And they don't have autism.
