Epilepsy Awareness Month-November
What is epilepsy?
Epilepsy is known as a medical condition in the nervous system which produces seizures; also known as convulsions.
Medical term for Seizures
Seizures are known as “Uncontrolled electrical activity in the brain”, which may produce a physical convulsion, minor physical signs, thought disturbances, or a combination of symptoms. The type of symptoms and seizures depend on where the abnormal electrical activity takes place in the brain,what its cause is, and such factors as; the patient’s age and general state of health. Seizures can be caused by head injuries, brain tumors, lead poisoning, wrong development of the brain, genetic and infectious illnesses, as well as fevers. In behalf of the patients with seizures, no cause can yet be found. There are several type of seizures such as grandmal, tonic colonic, absence and more.
The spiritual scene behind the seizure
I, (Linda) used to have seizures of all sort. I tried all combinations of medication and none worked. Neurologists placed the “Ketogenic diet” as an option and the Canola Oil as well. Nothing worked. One day, I came to Christ and after 5 years of getting to know the Lord, I came across this passage in the scripture. (Mark 9:14-29) and was so amazed.
And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not. He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him unto me. And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. And he asked his father, How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child. And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him: but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us. Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead. But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose. And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out? And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.Mathew 9: 17-29 KJV
I couldn’t believe what I was reading because it was so precise. I had heard people say that epileptics were possessed by the devil and other nonsense. Though the scripture mentions a spirit named “Dumb death” or “Mute deaf” depending on the version one reads. Though it does mention this in the book of Mark pertaining seizures, it does not mean it pertains to each single epileptic. He who says you cannot do things because you may be possessed is wrong! Let the light of the Lord be glorified through you!
I am alive till this day because the Lord protected me. As I type, I realize that my book should be written and published. There are so many people with seizures out there who feel like nobody understands them, But I want you to know I understand you both as a minor and as an adult. As a teen and also lost many friends because of it. I too soaked my eyes in tears feeling that no man would love me and accept me because of it. I was wrong. That fear brought many issues my way. I feared not bearing children, but God told me it would all be ok. There is so much to my story which I would love for you all to read but for now, I just continue to type in this blog by sharing the gospel with you all because seriously, if it weren’t for Him, I don’t know where I would be.
The supernatural scene known as the unseen
I was at a school’s cafeteria and began seeing a small clear bubble grow and grow captivating a 4 year old boy in front of me. The boy was inside the bubble; so I began to pray. Hence, the bubble was coming toward me as it tried to get me as well but failed because I fought in prayer towards spirit and principalities. Not even a second later, the little 4 year old boy began to convulse. The bubble was the spirit. We live in a spiritual world and it is supernatural; goes beyond our eyes. Yes, one may think I and many others are crazy, but that’s not the case. Many people believe that “one has to see it to believe it” Therefore, let them witness!
