Are You a Spiritual Schizophrenic?

Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself. He had equal status with God but didn’t think so much of himself that he had to cling to the advantages of that status no matter what. Not at all. When the time came, he set aside the privileges of deity and took on the status of a slave, became human! Having become human, he stayed human. It was an incredibly humbling process. He didn’t claim special privileges. Instead, he lived a selfless, obedient life and then died a selfless, obedient death—and the worst kind of death at that—a crucifixion.”                                                                                            Philippians 2:5-8 The Message Bible



Are you a Spiritual Schizophrenic?  If someone were to ask you that question, what would be your immediate response?  More than likely, everyone would emphatically reply NO!  But if we were to take an inventory of our lives- today - would our “walk” be in alignment with our “talk”?


Basically “schizo”; without getting into too much detail; is a mental disorder that makes it extremely difficult and sometimes impossible for a person to tell the difference between what is real and what is imagined.  This disorder hinders one’s ability to think clearly; to have normal emotional responses; and act normally in social situations.


So, think about your daily walk.  Then consider the following;

  1. In the realm of the Spirit…what influence do I impose to diabolical plots and plans?
  2. Can I readily make the distinction between the real and the “temporal”?
  3. Do I display on a regular basis wherever I go the character qualities of who I really am? ……Or am I still double minded; perpetrating a fraud and operating as an undercover Saint?


Schizophrenia is also categorized as a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder that has affected people throughout history.  It’s a mental condition.  What is the real condition of my mind?   Has my mind been renewed to the extent that it has the ability not to fall prey to the down falls that have plagued my genetic bloodline?   Or am I just “pretending” when I am in the presence of others, that all is well?  Does my mind have the stability to resist and conquer the constant pressures which are hurled and directed towards me from the kingdom of darkness?  We are truly in a new season – one that has not been experienced in times past.  Therefore, if we are going to make an impact and persevere in these last days, we will need the endtime wisdom, to strategically comprehend our mission of walking by faith and not by sight – a principle that first requires a “disengaging” of our current mind set. 


We must encounter and embrace a spiritual “disabling brain disorder” that will permit us to be governed by the Holy Spirit; rather that by the ordinances of this world’s systems, its boundaries and its limitations  - (which is our former mindset which have been programmed into our minds for years).


To be classified as a schizophrenic in the natural would afford me the opportunity to be viewed from an extremely negative perspective.   To be classified as and operate as a schizophrenic in the realm of the Spirit, could lead to results which will be detrimental to the body of Christ! Now as never before, my walk and my talk – decrees and my confessions must advance to a place of total reality and manifestation.  I must totally believe that my words – every spoken word… has the power to impact the atmosphere... and bring about a change!     


So, prayerfully consider James chapter 1.  Seek the face of the Lord for the ability to effectively and thoroughly apply wisdom to every situation that you encounter.  As endtime Saints we are now in need of that type of wisdom which will enable us to be healed and made whole from any type of “spiritual schizophrenia” that might be still lingering within us…….

And operating…. Still undetected and still hidden by spiritual imposters!


“So get rid of all that is wrong in your life, both inside and outside, and humbly be glad for the wonderful message we have received, for it is able to save our souls as it takes hold of our hearts.” James 1:21  (The Living Bible)
