|LOSING YOUR MIND
WHY.ARE.PEOPLE.SO.TOSSED.ABOUT_ JEFF.IN V-2 N-14 SUNDAY_ 56-0101, 38-5 When I had that ministerial meeting over there at the Jewish Hospital, and that group of men setting there, and how they tried to tell me... I said... "Why, you're losing your mind. Why, you can't do that. And you pray for kings?"
I said, "That's what He said."
It didn't make any difference what they said. It did it anyhow. God did it. He never looked at my ignorance. My ignorance could've never produced it. But it wasn't my ignorance; it was His grace; He was the One done it.
In that grace alone I trust this morning as I go pray for this dying woman and for others. Not only... You're God's servant too. The prayer, the effectual fervent prayer, the congregation praying...
JESUS.CHRIST.THE.SAME_ HOT.SPRINGS.AR V-20 N-9 THURSDAY_ 63-0627, 344 I don't know the little girl, a healthy-looking child. Look at me and believe, lady. You believe with all your heart? You believe me to be His servant? You believe that God can reveal to me your trouble? You're just about to a breakdown from a nervous condition. The--the devil has lied to you, tries to make you think you're losing your mind and everything.
SCRIPTURAL.SIGNS.OF.THE.TIME_ BIRMINGHAM.AL FRIDAY_ 64-0410, E-67 The man setting next to her, do you believe, sir? Believe God can tell me what your trouble is? You know whether it'd be truth or not. Varicose veins. You believe? The little lady setting there, kind of crying like, your trouble is nervousness. That's exactly right. Kind of shadowed, you get weak in the day-time. You think you're losing your mind. The devil tries to tell you that, but you're not. It's all over from tonight now. See, you got the victory. It's left you. The black shadow that was over you has left you.
WHATEVER.HE.SAITH.UNTO.YOU.DO.IT_ CHICAGO.IL THURSDAY_ 54-0722, E-47 You have a nervous trouble, setting there, don't you, lady? Only you have spells of nervousness that makes you feel like that you're losing your mind. Satan sometimes tells you that you've crossed the line. You've practically been nervous all your life. You had a scary sort of that when you were a child, just a little girl. And now, here I see you trying to do something that's a--make beds or something, you get so nervous you have to go set down. But you've been praying. You've been trying to be healed. When this lady was being prayed for just now, you felt something strange come over you. Has that the truth? If it is, raise up your hand. If that's true, I have told you the truth, I never seen you. You're just a lady that's walked up there and set down. I tell you that in the Name of Jesus Christ, you are healed. You go home. You're well. Amen. Have faith in God. Don't doubt. Believe.
AT.THY.WORD.LORD_ NEW.YORK.NY FRIDAY_ 51-0928
E-70 There sets another lady setting by you there, with a pink looking hat on, setting there praying. You believe, lady? You do? You believe me to be His prophet? You accept it the same way, you believe that I'll be able to tell you what's wrong with you, and you'll believe the Presence of God is here and my testimony that Jesus Christ healed you nineteen hundred years ago, is made visible to you now, do you believe that? Nervous condition, isn't that right? You think you're losing your mind and everything. See? You just... The devil beating you around the stump every way, is that right? Go home in the Name of the Lord Jesus and receive your healing for He has made you well.
BELIEVE.YE.THAT.I.AM.ABLE.TO.DO.THIS_ CLEVELAND.OH SUNDAY_ 50-0820E, E-48, I see what is wrong with you. You've tried everything in the world nearly to get well, haven't you? You've been to doctors. Everything has turned you down. And it's a nerve condition. Isn't that right? That's right. Nothing can help you. You've been given up. But Jesus will help you now.
Do you believe me, brother? You believe it? Will you obey me as His servant now? You want to healthy and have all that weary and gloomy and crazy feeling, like you're losing your mind, and things like that? Now, I tell you where that started, on the prostate. See? But what really is doing it, it's a demon. It haunts you. Isn't that right? You have no peace at all. Day and night, it's after you. Seems like you just get gloomy feelings in there. Isn't that right? Yes, sir. Weary, don't sleep, nervous, getting up...?... at night. Isn't that right?
LOSE YOUR MIND
APPROACH.TO.GOD_ CHICAGO.IL SUNDAY_ 55-0123A
E-14 Christ never makes you lose your mind; He gives you your mind, after you have lost it. It's the Devil that take--makes you lose your mind. It's a demon.
Look at the--the maniac of Gadara. See? When he met Jesus, he was restored to his mind, his right mind. And a man without his right mind, no matter how much intellect he has, he's still not sane yet. A man without knowing Christ is nothing more, hardly, in himself, than a brute. He will... For passions and lusts he'd throw the baby out of a mothers arms and ravish her, because of his own beastly lust. That's right. Certainly, he will.
GOD.HAS.A.PROVIDED.WAY_ LVL.KY V-25 N-9 SUNDAY_ 54-0404, 265 Now, lady, stand where you are; look this a way. This whole audience, a big percent of them, suffers with that nervousness. Sometimes you think you're going to lose your mind, don't you? You get so nervous. Recently you dropped something; it was a dish or something; you was going across with it. But now Jesus Christ has healed you from it, and you're aware of that. Now, go on your road rejoicing.
JESUS.CHRIST.THE.SAME_ CHICAGO.IL SUNDAY_ 55-0116E
E-77 Little lady, setting right there is bothered with a nervous trouble, setting there, second one. Yes. Weeping just a few moments ago... When I was talking to this woman and said nervous, a real strange feeling struck you, didn't it? If that's right, raise your hand. You've been suffering with nervousness, Satan telling you, and everything, you was going to lose your mind and things. Isn't that right? If that's right, wave your hand. You were healed right then. Your faith made you whole. Jesus Christ made you well. Amen.
ISRAEL.AT.THE.RED.SEA.2_ JEFF.IN IC 65-96 FRIDAY_ 53-0327
151 Right when the Devil backs you in a corner, say, "I got him right now. Boy, he can't move now. I got him right now." Then the Lord will come along and the cross will drop before us, and (Hallelujah) away we'll go.
Doctor say, "Can't be nothing done for you." Oh, my.
Oh, somebody said, "You know, you're going crazy, you'll lose your mind," or something like that, then God will come along, pour out a blessing on you. Just forget about it. God knows where He's leading. Amen. Whew. I'm having an awful time here; I tell you.
SPIRITUAL.AMNESIA_ BIRMINGHAM.AL SATURDAY_ 64-0411
E-16 Now, worry sometimes causes it. And another thing that causes it among the people is getting between two opinions. That'll cause amnesia. And it gets you to a place where you--you... Actually, what you've done, you've lost your reasons, you've lost your mind. You can't make... You don't know who you are. You can't identify yourself. You can walk around, eat and everything. But you--still you can't identify yourself. You've got your scholarly education, you can--same education you had, but you don't know where it come from. You don't know who you are, where you belong; that's amnesia, so we're told.
IDENTIFIED.MASTERPIECE.OF.GOD_ YUMA.AZ SATURDAY_ 64-1205
E-81 I left my church to come identify myself with a bunch of holy-rollers. I'm one of them. I'm identified with them. They say, "Billy, you lost your mind." Maybe I did, but I found the mind of Christ. I found His Word, found His Presence, found that He's the same yesterday, today, and forever. I don't care what anybody else thinks about it. This is me. I'm the one that has to make my identification. I'm identified with Him by God's Word. He said, "These signs shall follow them that believe." I'm glad I'm identified in that. Yes, sir.
GOD.TESTIFYING.OF.HIS.GIFTS_ HAMMOND.IN SUNDAY_ 52-0713E
E-67 Now look, between you and I stands a dark object, about like a cloud floating, moving. And I know who it is. And I know what he does to the people. You're bothered with a nervous condition (Isn't that right?), mental nervousness, upset. And you think sometimes that you're going to lose your mind. Isn't that right? I'm not reading your mind, but that... isn't that right? Now, don't cry...?... Now, it has moved from you. Your faith, without prayer, has made you whole. Now, you go home; you're going to be a well, healthy woman. God's blessings upon you. That's faith, believing. Have faith, don't doubt, just believe.
IDENTIFIED.MASTERPIECE.OF.GOD_ YUMA.AZ SATURDAY_ 64-1205
E-49 But, you see, the trouble of it is we don't want to take that beating. You can say something about something, and some immoral thing the church is doing, or--or some social thing. Right then they turn you down, close the doors, you can't come in (See?), because they have a meeting and bar you out. They don't want you no more. They say you're crazy; you've lost your mind. But as long as it's THUS SAITH THE LORD, that don't matter to me what anybody says. It takes the power of Christ to change a man. It takes the power of Christ to keep a man.
ANGEL.AND.HIS.COMMISSION_ PHOENIX.AZ SUNDAY_ 47-1102
E-38 Now, while I was...?... them out... Now--now, that doesn't come by vibrations. There's no vibrations on the hand. Only, she did have just a little touch of female trouble, a little bag in her stomach. She's been having stomach trouble, such as having a little...?... like gas on the stomach, and so forth like that. Is that right, lady? Now, how did I know that? [The lady answers, "Vibrations."--Ed.] That's right. See?
Well, now, here's what happens. She gets real nervous spells. But ma--mainly, a mental, psychic condition. She causes...?... feeling, she gets worried, at first like a old piece of...?... And you feel like you're going to lose your mind. Isn't that the way you been feeling?
EARNESTLY.CONTENDING_ KARLSRUHE.GERMANY MONDAY_ 55-0815
E-52 The lady is stranger to me. I do not know her. You have faith, and you believe with all heart. I see a--a hospital, a place where the men dressed with white. And they are ministering to you. You come from hospital. And you have been nervous, real scared, upset. And something has been talking to you, telling you that you were going to lose your mind...?... That is true. Right. Do you believe Jesus Christ? Then go home and get well. In the Name of Lord Jesus Christ, cursed be this disease.
Oh Satan, you're exposed. Come out of the woman, in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen. Go rejoicing. Amen. God bless you. All right.
JESUS.CHRIST.THE.SAME_ HOT.SPRINGS.AR V-20 N-9 THURSDAY_ 63-0627
344 I don't know the little girl, a healthy-looking child. Look at me and believe, lady. You believe with all your heart? You believe me to be His servant? You believe that God can reveal to me your trouble? You're just about to a breakdown from a nervous condition. The--the devil has lied to you, tries to make you think you're losing your mind and everything. Don't believe it. You're free. Jesus Christ makes you free. Amen.
PERSEVERANT_ DALLAS.TX V-19 N-9 THURSDAY_ 64-0305
37 When he couldn't do it with an army, how is he going to do it with a crooked stick? "Oh, man, you've lost your mind. You're--you're out of your head."
It was a one man invasion. But the thing of it was, he did it, because that it was a Word of the Lord. And Moses was determined, no matter what his odds was. God was with him, and He's worth more than all the odds.
If men and women could only think that tonight, that the Word of the Lord is Truth. There's nothing else. All eternity hinges on the Word. "Not one Word," Jesus said, "will fail. Heavens and earth will, but It won't."
DO.YOU.NOW.BELIEVE_ W.PALM.BEACH.FL SUNDAY_ 53-1206
E-93 Believe now; don't doubt. Just about eighty percent of this audience is got your trouble. You're nervous, upset. Thing's causing yours is the time of life; it's the menopause. Isn't that right? You have real weary feeling. Everything goes wrong. You think sometimes you've lost your mind. That's the devil telling you that. It's a lie. You're going to get well, because of your attitude toward God's gift. You come reverent.
How many people in here suffer with nervousness, raise your hand? Come on, be honest. Every one of you can be made well right now, just as easy as this one woman can, every one of the rest of you can. That's exactly right, every one of you can be made whole just like this woman will be made whole.
EXPECTATION_ WOOD.RIVER.IL SATURDAY_ 54-0220
E-81 Come on, lady. Do you believe with all your heart? Are you a believer? You believe me His Prophet, His servant? Got the wickedest thing there is to fight. About eighty percent of this audience is suffering with the same thing. It's just coming from all out there. Let me show you. Turn your face this a way. How many out there is suffering with nervousness? Raise your hand. See? You have real funny feelings, fearing, weary, upset, think you're going to lose your mind. Satan told you you was, but he lied. You're healed now. Go home and be made well in the Name of Jesus.
LOOKING.FOR.JESUS_ PHOENIX.AZ SUNDAY_ 54-0228E
E-77 All right, come, lady. Are you believing? Amen. Get over the asthmatic condition and be made well? You believe God is going to heal you? Would you like to go eat? That stomach's give you some trouble, hasn't it. You believe me to be God's prophet? What's done it, you're just the time of life; you're in the--the menopause time, to make you nervous and upset. You're scared. The devil tells you you're going to lose your mind. Late of the evening, you get real nervous and have to set down many times. Is that right? You was washing some dishes the other day and dropped one, isn't that right? Now, your stomach trouble's healed. You can go home, eat what you want to. Jesus Christ make you whole.
Let's say, "Praise be to God."
LEADING.OF.THE.SPIRIT_ CAMPBELLSVILLE.KY SUNDAY_ 55-0807E, E-62 I am not beside myself, no, but such a feeling to know that now, right here, stands Jesus, the One Who raised from the dead, the One Who loves you so much. He's speaking for me, now. I've been preaching about Him; He's talking, now. That's Him.
Excuse me, lady. I didn't mean to leave you. I have to follow the way the Spirit leads.
Now, here's a dark streak coming from a woman to another one. What is it? It's a devil. He knows his time has come. This woman here has... You're extremely nervous, aren't you, lady? Just hysterically nervous. I see you trying to do things, and you just can't. You're just nervous, mental nervous. Satan told you that you were going to lose your mind if you didn't get over it. But he lied to you.
WILL.CHURCH.GO.BEFORE.TRIBULATION_ JEFF.IN SUNDAY_ 58-0309E
E-69 Do you believe, sir? Do you believe the Lord will take that stiffness away from you and make you well, that arthritis? Go right on back through there, thanking Him and praising Him for it and you'll get all right.
You're bothered with nervous trouble aren't you, lady? That's a mental nervousness. You get real weak, suffer with spells, especially late in the afternoon. Even Satan's told you you was going to lose your mind. That's right. But it's a lie. You're going to be well. It's nothing but just the time of life that you're coming into; it's menopause. Every woman has to come to that, but you're going to be all right, now. You believe my word? Then go thank God, and sing songs, and rejoice and be made well.
HEBREWS.CHAPTER.7.PT.1_ JEFF.IN HEB SUNDAY_ 57-0915E
293-31 And then, that's why Jesus came to take away our sins, that we might be perfected, that God could work through His Church. There's where the secret lays. There's where the world's blind. There's where they want to say that you've lost your mind. There's where they want to say, "You don't know what you're talking about." Because the things of the Lord is foolish to the wisdom of this world. But the things of the world is carnal to the believer. So you're a different person; you're living in a different sphere. You're not no more of this world; you've passed from this life into a new Life.
ABSOLUTE.THE_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-18 SUNDAY_ 62-1230M
55-3 Think of it, when about three-fourths of the earth is water. And look at the hydrogen and oxygen in the air, the humidity and stuff. See, if every moisture was ink; and think of the billions, and trillions, and trillions of straws which would be quills. And think of the billions of men that's been on earth, and every one of them a scribe by trade. To dip them pens into the ocean and try to figure out the love of God would drain the ocean dry; or could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from eternity to eternity.
Don't figure it out; you can't. You lose your mind trying to figure it out; just believe it. Make Him your Absolute. Stay there; the sweet peace and an experience that you'll never forget; anchor to that, and your anchor will hold within the veil. Let's bow our heads.
ACCEPTING.GOD'S.PROVIDED.WAY_ PHOENIX.AZ TUESDAY_ 63-0115
E-9 So that morning, I'd gotten up and I was thinking, "Boy, you're fifty years old. If you're going to do anything for the Lord, you'd better hurry up. You're going to be too old after while." And all at once, I was caught up into this place, and could look back and see myself down here. Never had that experience. Many times I've had visions of seeing myself standing somewhere, and then... Oh, if you don't understand it, you'd think you'd lost your mind. You--you're here, watching yourself there. And then you leave here, and you're in yourself there. It's maybe way back, years ahead, and so forth. It's hard to explain. You don't--can't explain it. You can't explain God. You got to believe Him. See? If you can explain it, then it's no more faith. You just have to believe it.
