Psychiatry in Denial Over Demons — Nov 21, 2017

Demons Play a Major Role in Schizophrenia and Mental Illness. 

schizoSchizophrenia is in the top 10 health problems of the world and makes billions of dollars annually for drug companies. Currently, there is no cure except for suppressing the voices. Psychiatry refuses to recognize that demons are the underlying factor in schizophrenia. They can be thwarted without using drugs.
Even if you’re not schizophrenic, those nasty thoughts we have on occasion could be demons.

By “Mendel” — (

If any psychologist or psychiatrist were to mention the word demons, parasitic entities or evil spirits, they’d be out of a job and perhaps even a patient at the very institution they may have worked for.
Many years ago I started noticing that the audio hallucinations of schizophrenics were not random. The messages are always derogatory, discouraging, fearful or outright evil. A psychiatrist could lose his job for asking patients what the voices are saying, it’s wrongfully believed that the patient will get worse if he describes what he hears or sees.
demonAnti-psychotic drugs can help to calm the voices, but long-term effects can literally turn people into brain-damaged zombies. Abilify (an anti-psychotic used for schizophrenia and other conditions) is the top-selling drug in the US with an estimated sales of over $7 billion a year. It is indicative of what a bad shape the general American population is currently in. It’s big money and big profits. The top 7 antipsychotics each has sales well over a billion dollars annually.
From my own observations, big pharma absolutely does not want a cure and they will put you out of business or worse if you find a cure. There are some high up within big pharma that know about demons as they themselves are Satanists. Patients and professionals are misled into believing the voices are hallucinations.
The patients are not mentally ill, they hear real voices that are not their own. These voices are out to create maximum negativity and chaos. The demons require this negative energy to survive. The voices can grow so loud that the patient is confused and can’t hear others. The voices will tell the patient to do crazy or dangerous things.
When we see a “crazy” person walking down the street talking to themselves, they are actually speaking with real entities and if you ever listened, the conversations are not pleasant. The demons will get their victims to believe they are worthless, hated, stupid and unwanted. Invariably after an attack, the victims will be left exhausted, drained and depressed. This is the point — the demons drain the victim’s energy. They are actually farming people; they allow them to recover and then harvest again. They require this negative energy to survive. There is a cure.

WARNING: If you suffer from this, the voices will do all to distract you from reading further.

Germany: Spike in Stabbings

Soeren Kern — Gatestone Institute Nov 17, 2017

  • Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door migration policies have set in motion a self-reinforcing cycle of violence in which more and more people are carrying knives in public — including for self-defense.
  • A 40-year-old man stabbed to death his 31-year-old wife and mother of their three children. Police said the man was angry that his wife was using social media.
  • A “dark-skinned” man (dunklem Teint) drew a knife on a 54-year-old female train conductor when she asked him for his ticket.

A recent surge in stabbings and knife-related violence across Germany is drawing renewed attention to the deteriorating security situation there since Chancellor Angela Merkel’s 2015 decision to allow in more than a million migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

In recent months, people armed with knives, axes and machetes have brought devastation to all of Germany’s 16 federal states. Knives have been used not only not only to carry out jihadist attacks, but also to commit homicides, robberies, home invasions, sexual assaults, honor killings and many other types of violent crime.

Knife-related crimes have occurred in amusement parks, bicycle trails, hotels, parks, public squares, public transportation, restaurants, schools, supermarkets and train stations. Many Germans have the sense that danger lurks everywhere; public safety, nowhere.

Police admit they are outnumbered and overwhelmed and increasingly unable to maintain public order — both day and night.

Statistics that are reliable on knife violence in Germany — where police been accused of failing to report many crimes, apparently in an effort “not to unsettle” the public — do not exist.

A search of German police blotters, however, indicates that 2017 is on track to become a record year for stabbings and knife crimes: Police reported more than 3,500 knife-related crimes between January and October 2017, compared to around 4,000 reported crimes during all of 2016 — and only 300 in 2007. Overall, during the past ten years, knife-related crimes in Germany have increased by more than 1,200%.

The media in Germany do not report most knife-related violence. Crimes that are reported are often dismissed as “isolated incidents,” unrelated to mass immigration. Moreover, many crime reports, including those in police blotters, omit any reference at all to the nationalities of the perpetrators and victims — ostensibly to avoid inflaming anti-immigration sentiments.

Merkel’s open-door migration policies have, however, set in motion a self-reinforcing cycle of violence in which more and more people are carrying knives in public — including for self-defense.

The epicenter of knife-related violence in Germany is Berlin, where some areas are now so dangerous that they have effectively become no-go zones. In Neukölln and other neighborhoods with large immigrant communities, stabbings have become daily features of life. Migrants were responsible for at least 45% of the crimes committed in the German capital in 2016, according to the Berliner Morgenpost.

The northern cities of Bremen and Bremerhaven are also hotbeds of knife violence. In 2016, at least 469 people — more than one a day — were stabbed in Bremen, accordingto official documents obtained by the newspaper Bild. More than a dozen people in Bremen died of their stab wounds. Another 165 knife attacks were registered in nearby Bremerhaven, a 75% increase since 2014. Migrants, according to Bild, were found responsible for most of the violence.

Another flashpoint of knife violence is North Rhine-Westphalia; stabbings are rampant in Bielefeld, Bochum, Bonn, Cologne, Dortmund, Düsseldorf and Essen, among other cities. Düsseldorf’s city center has been particularly plagued by stabbings.

Many knife attacks appear to be random, indiscriminate assaults on innocent bystanders — especially at transport hubs and on public transportation:

  • Munich, October 21. A 33-year-old man randomly stabbed eight people, including a 12-year-old boy, at the Rosenheimer Platz. Police said they “assume” that the stabber, a serial offender with a long rap sheet, was suffering from a “mental disorder.”
  • Mönchengladbach, October 16. An 18-year-old Algerian, in Germany illegally, randomly drew a knife on a 65-year-old man in a wheelchair at the central train station.
  • Hamburg, October 15. A 23-year-old man was stabbed in a restaurant after he made “accidental eye contact” with his attacker.

  • Leipzig, July 27. A 46-year-old father at an amusement park with his family was stabbed and seriously injured when he was attacked by a group of Afghan youths.

  • Dormagen, November 15. A 39-year-old man randomly drew a knife on a teenager at the Helmut-Schmidt-Platz. The attacker was transferred to a psychiatric ward.

  • Hermannsburg, August 29. A man drew a knife on a 22-year-old woman because she was supposedly holding up traffic in a parking garage.

In mass brawls between groups of people from different nationalities and ethnic groups, knives appear to be weapons of choice:

  • Bielefeld, October 2. A 21-year-old man was repeatedly stabbed after he came to the aid of a couple being attacked by a group of Afghan men at a skate park. More than 20 people eventually joined the fight. The stabbing suspect is an 18-year-old Iraqi Kurd.
  • Naumburg, October 1. An 18-year-old Afghan and a 19-year-old Moroccan were stabbed during a mass brawl between persons of foreign origin.
  • Dortmund, September 3. A 34-year-old Bulgarian stabbed a 54-year-old Turk outside a restaurant.

Knives have also been used in “honor” violence and internecine disputes:

  • Bad Homburg, October 30. A 40-year-old man stabbed to death his 31-year-old wife and mother of their three children. Police said the man was angry that his wife was using social media.
  • Oldenburg, October 14. The trial began of a 37-year-old Iraqi accused of stabbing to death his wife, the mother of his five children, who were in the house at the time of the attack.

The woman had, in fact, been attending German language courses.
  • Eggenfelden, October 4. A 47-year-old migrant from Kazakhstan castrated a 28-year-old Ukrainian migrant at a migrant shelter; the victim bled to death at the scene.
  • Leipzig, August 11. A 37-year-old Afghan stabbed to death his 34-year-old wife, who was pregnant with their third child. The couple’s two children were present at home during the crime.

  • Herzberg, June 29. Mohammad Hussain Rashwani, a 38-year-old migrant from Syria tried to behead 64-year-old Ilona Fugmann at her beauty salon.

Mohammad reportedly had found it difficult to subordinate himself to his female boss.
  • Cologne, June 14. A 33-year-old Syrian stabbed and seriously injured his ex-wife at a supermarket in Cologne. He also stabbed his 13-year-old son after the boy intervened to protect his mother.
  • Cottbus, June 9. A 32-year-old Chechen man was sentenced to 13 years in prison for slitting his wife’s throat and throwing her out of the second-floor window of their apartment. The man was charged with manslaughter rather than murder because, according to the court, the “honor killing” was done in the heat of passion: the man thought that his wife had been unfaithful.

Knife attacks also occurred against social workers and public servants:

  • Pfaffenhofen, November 11. A 28-year-old Kazakh-German held a 31-year-old clerk at a youth welfare office hostage at knifepoint for more than five hours. He said he disagreed with the results of a custody battle, in which his one-year-old daughter would be sent to a foster home.
  • Göppingen, October 26. A “dark-skinned” man (dunklem Teint) drew a knife on a 54-year-old female train conductor when she asked him for his ticket.

  • Saarbrücken, June 7. A 27-year-old Syrian stabbed to death a 30-year-old psychologist working for the German Red Cross. The attacker and the psychologist reportedly got into an argument during a therapy session at a counselling center for traumatized refugees.

Attackers are often repeat offenders known to police:

  • Gießen, November 15. A 29-year-old Kosovar and a 19-year-old Albanian drew a knife on an undercover detective who caught them shoplifting. Police said the Kosovar was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant.

  • Düsseldorf, October 17. A 27-year-old migrant, Khudeda Jamal Jindi, from Iraq, slashed a man in the face at Burgplatz. Police said he had a long rap sheet that included other knife crimes; it remains unclear why he was never deported.
  • Arnschwang, June 4. Mostafa J., a 41-year-old asylum seeker from Afghanistan, stabbed to death a five-year-old Russian at a refugee shelter. It later emerged that the man had a criminal history in Germany and should have been deported in 2011 but was not.

Recent knife-jihad attacks include:

  • Hamburg, July 28. A 26-year-old Palestinian, Ahmed A., stabbed to death one person and injured several others at a supermarket in the Barmbek district. Although he repeatedly shouted “Allahu Akbar” and said he was a jihadist who wanted to die as a martyr, the newspaper Die Welt wrote: “It is still unclear whether the Barmbek murder is the work of a convinced Islamist or the desperate act of a mentally troubled person. His approach seems downright schizophrenic — or is it indeed calculated?”

Meanwhile, other knife-related crimes reported during October include:

Lo-ruchama, Lo-ammi. Door Cor van Ruitenbeek.

Lo-ruchama, Lo-ammi.


Hosea 1: 6 en 9

6 Zij werd wederom zwanger en baarde een dochter; Hij zeide tot hem: 

Noem haar Lo-ruchama, want Ik zal Mij voortaan niet meer over het huis Israels ontfermen, dat Ik hun iets vergeven zou.

9 Toen zeide Hij: Noem hem Lo-ammi, want gij zijt mijn volk niet en Ik zal de uwe niet zijn.


Israël, zoals we dat nu kennen, is niet GODS volk.

Dus we hebben er niets te zoeken, te verdelen en te steunen.

Israël, zoals we dat nu kennen en op de kaart zien staan, is niets anders dan 70 jaar voor GOD uitlopen.

Voor GOD uitlopen of met andere woorden GOD een handje helpen.


Maar hoe verklaar ik dan de overwinningen op de vijanden van Israël?  

Nou, satan kan ook bedrieglijke wonderen doen alsof het van GOD afkomt.


2 Thessalonicenzen 2: 3-4

Laat niemand u misleiden, op welke wijze ook, want eerst moet de afval komen en de mens der wetteloosheid zich openbaren, de zoon des verderfs,

4 de tegenstander, die zich verheft tegen al wat God of voorwerp van verering heet, zodat hij zich in de tempel Gods zet, om aan zich te laten zien, dat hij een god is.


Bijna het gehele christendom laat zich misleiden door de steun aan Israël.

Steun aan Israël is niets meer dan steun geven aan de tegenstander, die zich verzet tegen al wat GOD of voorwerp van verering heet.

Steun aan Israël is niets meer dan steun aan een god die geen god is.    

Laatst beluisterde ik een studie waarin de spreker het over het opdelen heeft van Israël door Amerika.

Daarom zien we nu ook een verdeeld Amerika.

Maar dat verdeeld zijn zie we ook bij de Islam, soennieten en  sjiieten, en vele kleineren clubjes.

Maar waar zien we die verdeeldheid nog meer?

Bij het christendom met de vele stromingen en clubjes.


Komt het nog wel goed met Israël en in het midden oosten?



Romeinen 11: 1-3

1 Ik vraag dan: God heeft zijn volk toch niet verstoten?

Volstrekt niet! Ik ben immers zelf een Israëliet, uit het nageslacht van Abraham, van de stam Benjamin.

2 God heeft zijn volk niet verstoten, dat Hij tevoren gekend heeft. Of weet gij niet, wat het schriftwoord zegt in (de geschiedenis van) Elia, als hij Israël bij God aanklaagt:

3 Here, uw profeten hebben zij gedood, uw altaren hebben zij omvergehaald; ik ben alleen overgebleven en mij staan zij naar het leven.


Tegen Mozes zie GOD dat Israël een hardnekkig volk was.


Exodus 32: 9

9 Vervolgens zeide de Here tot Mozes: Ik heb dit volk gezien en zie, het is een hardnekkig volk.


En bijna het hele christendom houdt een hand boven het hoofd van Israël dat tot op de dag van vandaag nog steeds hardnekkig is.

Vele ongelovige onder de volkeren hebben het niet zo bond gemaakt als Israël.

Lees Ezechiël 16 over herstel van Sodom en haar dochters en Samaria en haar dochters. Ze hebben het nog niet zo bond gemaakt als Jeruzalem.




Hosea 6: 2

2 Hij zal ons ( Israël  ) na twee dagen doen herleven, ten derden

dage zal Hij ons oprichten, en wij zullen leven voor zijn aangezicht.


Wilt u weten hoe dat herstel zal zijn?

Lees: Ezechiël  36 en 37.


Let op en lees vooral de volgende woorden IK ZAL, ZAL IK, ZO SPREEKT DE HEERE. EN GIJ ( ISRAËL ) ZULT WETEN, DAT IK DE HEERE BEN.   ( Ezechiël 37: 13 )


Na twee dagen of na twee duizend jaar en dat is niet 70 jaar eerder zoals het uitroepen van de staat Israël.

GOD laat het toe, het uitroepen van de staat Israël.

Israël loopt vanzelf vast en met Israël alle volken.

Zelf aan de bak gaan voor onze eigen redding is niets meer dan eigen werken wat niets meer is dan klungelen, instant houden, aanmodderen met iets dat niets oplevert.

Al onze eigen werken zijn levensgevaarlijk, we lopen vanzelf vast.


Zacharia 12: 2-3

2 Zie, Ik maak Jeruzalem tot een schaal der bedwelming voor alle volken in het rond; ja ook tegen Juda zal het gaan bij de belegering van Jeruzalem.

3 Te dien dage zal Ik Jeruzalem maken tot een steen, die alle natiën moeten heffen; allen die hem heffen, zullen zich deerlijk verwonden. En alle volkeren der aarde zullen zich daarheen verzamelen.


En het bovenstaande geldt ook voor alle religies, inclusief het christendom.

IK ZAL, ZAL IK houdt in: er komen geen mensenhanden aan te pas.






‘ Ik wens u ALLEN, geliefde vrienden en vijanden, Gods rijke zegen, genade en liefde toe ‘.


Is Iran Trying to Bring Islamic End-of-Days in Syria?

Is Iran Trying to Bring Islamic End-of-Days in Syria?

“Behold, I am sending My messenger to clear the way before Me, and the Lord whom you seek shall come to His Temple suddenly. As for the angel of the covenant that you desire, he is already coming.” Malachi 3:1 (The Israel Bible™)

Iran is establishing bases in Syria, but according to some sources, their preparations to engage Israel are motivated far more by Messianic aspirations than military or political ones.

Iran has frequently stated its desire to destroy Israel, claiming the Jewish state as the focus of its nuclear and long-range missile program. Iran has also funneled millions of dollars into proxy enemies of Israel, like Hezbollah in Lebanon and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

According to Debka, a Middle East military analysis site, Iran is now stepping up its pace, having established 13 military installations in Syria. Some experts see behind this a sinister desire for the end of the world – Islam style.

Indeed, the escalation of Iranian military efforts in Syria are religiously motivated, Ryan Mauro, a political analyst for the Clarion Project, explained in a recent interview.

“This isn’t normal competition between hostile powers, this isn’t even the normal Iranian sponsorship of terrorism or attempts to expand their military presence,” Mauro said. “To the Iranian regime this is the fulfillment of prophecy.”

Mauro pointed out that new Iranian troops are called Ansar al-Mahdi (“Supporters of the Messiah”). It has also created a 313th brigade, into which it is is recruiting young Syrian Shiites. According to tradition in Shiite Islam, 313 is the number of fighters that will arrive with the Mahdi, the Islamic Messiah.

Islam’s tradition holds that Mahdi is the redeemer of Islam. The arrival of Mahdi will coincide with the arrival of the Christian messiah, who will be the Mahdi’s assistant in fighting the Masih ad-Dajjal, the false messiah, or anti-Christ.

According to the tradition, the Mahdi will reappear along with Jesus, who will declare himself a Muslim, and kill Christians who refuse to convert. Shia Islam holds that the end-of-days will be a bloody battle, killing off two-thirds of the world population and leaving the rest to convert to Islam.

The concept of Mahdi is explicit in Iranian politics. In a speech in front of the UN General Assembly in 2008, former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad left the gathered politicians aghast as he explicitly begged Allah to hasten the return of the Mahdi.

“You are not dealing with fully rational actors,” Mauro said. “You can be irrational and strategic and pragmatic at the same time, which is what Iran is doing. If you understand these prophecies, you can understand Iran.”

Mauro explained that according to Shiite theology, Iran believes they will lead the battle against Sunni adversaries, continue down into Israel, and eventually take over Jerusalem. He believes that the recent destabilization in Saudi Arabia is a direct result of Iran’s apocalyptic agenda.

Debka editor Giora Shamis agreed. “The basis of Iran’s policy is based on spreading Shiite Islam and making it the dominant religion in the world,” Shamis told Breaking Israel News.

“The Iranian revolution in 1978 was solely a religious movement focused in a religious battle against America. This is being carried out today in the smallest details. It is impossible to discuss the Iranians or their actions in the region without taking into account their religious agenda.”
