Free from Epilepsy
It’s Easier Than
by Pastor John Hamel
“And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have
brought unto Thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; And wherever he takes
him, he tears him: and he foams, and gnashes with his teeth, and pines away…
and when he [the spirit] saw him [Jesus], 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 often 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. …he [Jesus] 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; …Jesus took
him by the hand, and lifted him up; and he arose.” (Mark 9:17-27)
One day Jesus
encountered the father of a young boy who had all the symptoms of
“epilepsy.” He would suddenly fall to the ground, foam at the mouth,
gnash with his teeth and then just as suddenly appear as if he had
Apparently in this
boy’s case, a “dumb and deaf spirit” that also hindered his ability to both
hear and speak caused these symptoms. Jesus simply cast that spirit
out of the boy and his life was changed forever.
medically defined as “a neurological disorder with recurrent sensory disturbances,
loss of consciousness or convulsions; associated with abnormal electrical
activity in the brain.”
I do not know everything
that can be known about epilepsy. Nor do I believe that all seizures
are the result of a human being tormented by “evil spirits” or
cases of epilepsy are obviously neurological and physical. When that
is the case the individual suffering with the disorder can be healed by
faith in God's Word through the use of the Strong Name of Jesus.
However, quite often
epileptic seizures are the result of harassment by demonic spirits and when
this is the case, these spirits can be cast out using the Powerful Name of Jesus.
If Jesus did
it, all Believers who live right can do it.
Jesus said, “…the
works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do;
because I go unto my Father.” (John 14:12)

explained to him that it was going to take some patience and commitment on
his part, but if he would stay with it he could be free. He assured me he
was willing to do whatever it took to be free from living with the nightmare
of epileptic seizures.
from the Bible that faith is released through the mouth, I encouraged him to
say the following whenever the thought or the fear of having a seizure would
come to him.

me. I am free from epileptic seizures in the Name of
Jesus." His joy returned. He was relieved that God was not
condemning him and that he could take authority again as if he had never
parted ways again that day and I did not have occasion to see this man until
at least four months later. When I finally did see him, I asked him
right up front, "Have you been maintaining your authority? Are
you still free form epilepsy?" With a grateful heart he declared

is simply not a coincidence that when this man took authority over the
spirit that was causing his epileptic seizures they stopped.
was no coincidence that when he stopped maintaining his Christian authority,
the seizures began again.
was absolutely no coincidence that once he began maintaining his Christian
authority again, through the words of his mouth, that the seizures stopped
again. This time permanently.
