70 Million Americans Taking Mind-Altering Drugs
I so appreciate the below article from John McTernan speaking of the monumental amount of drugs people of all persuasions in this nation take. Truly the volume of drugs consumed is in reality a symptom in and of itself of a nation racked with pain, misery, loneliness, fear, stress,, anxiety and often a sense of impeding doom.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
Psalm 147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
The affect of rejecting God and the authority of the Bible is now destroying the Western civilization. When God is removed from a society, a void is created which then satan fills with evil. There is also a void created in the spiritual heart. This void is now being filled with both “legal” and illegal drugs.
When I was in high school in the mid-1960s there was no drug use. Prayer and Bible reading were removed from the schools in 1963, and by 1970 the schools and colleges were full of drug users. I believe what the Supreme Court did in 1963 set evil forces loose in America. The evil is now full-blown with 57 million babies dead and homosexuals legally “marrying”. This is not to mention all the other sins destroying the nation.
With God out of society and powerless preachers in pulpits, there is little to help people be filled with God in their hearts and mind.
So many people now are using drugs, both legal and illegal, as they are trying to self medicate a broken heart. They need peace to quell the pain of being brokenhearted.
To me, there is direct correlation between so many Christians on drugs and the rejection of the King James Bible as the word of God. The NIV and the other false modern translations started to hit in the 1970s and by 1980 the vast majority of Christians were reading these translations.
The modern translations leave out of Luke 4:18 that the Lord Jesus “came to heal the brokenhearted”, thus leaving the people prone to stay with a broken heart and spiritually weakened.
When was the last time, you heard preaching or teaching on the Lord Jesus healing the brokenhearted?
This resulted in a flood of false teaching, lead by Christian “psychologists”, that attempt to manage a broken heart instead of healing it according to Luke 4:18.
Jesus Christ came to free us from the bondage of sin and not for us to manage it. People need His peace in their heart and there will be no need of a psychologist.
A Psychiatrist’s Perspective on Using Drugs 01/16/14 This psychiatrist is fantastic and tells the truth to a point. The underlying problem is a broken heart, which cannot be healed by psychiatry, but only through the power of Jesus Christ. She tells the danger of the antidepressants and how useless they are.
“We need to break the populace out of its spell, reject the serotonin meme, and start looking at depression (and anxiety, and bipolar, and schizophrenia, and OCD, etc) for what they are – disparate expressions of a body struggling to adapt to a stressor. We need to identify vulnerabilities, modifiable exposures, and support basic cellular function, detox, and immune response. This is personalized medicine, where these abstract labels become meaningless because they only address the “what” of the symptoms” in an impressionistic, non-specific manner. One as helpful as saying the fever is the disease, and Tylenol the cure. Psychiatry’s swan song has been sung…listen for its plaintive wail.”
The hearts that are now broken and need to be healed are ready for the gospel of Jesus Christ. So many Christians are hurting and need their hearts healed, while there is little being preached from the pulpits. The result is massive drug use to fill the void.
The Lord has led me into the ministry to heal the brokenhearted according to Luke 4:18. How can we be a powerful witness for the Lord if our heart is shattered and on drugs? When we are free and full of God’s peace, people will see it and respond to our sharing the gospel. They will want in them what they see in you!
I am starting to put together a Healing the Brokenhearted section on my website. There are teachings and testimonies posted right now to help you get started. Go to: Jesus Christ came to heal the brokenhearted.
Please use my brochure titled: Jesus Christ Came to Brokenhearted. It is in PDF format, so you can print it out. This is a great witnessing tool that you easily can hand out. I wrote it so the reader could make a decision for salvation and at the same time have his heart healed. There are untold numbers of people who will respond when you tell them that Jesus Christ loves them and wants to heal their broken heart. Please do not wait, but start using the brochure now.
This verse shows the real power of Christianity.
Romans 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
I was recently interviewed by Sid Roth, and it was played this week. The response to this interview was fantastic with many people contacting me for a healing of their hearts. You can email if you want prayer. God is doing a mighty work, as I am witnessing so many hearts healed. If you want to watch the video go to: Interview of healed hearts. There also a telephone interview and to listen go to: Listen to Sid’s radio interviews with John McTernan.

70 million Americans taking mind-altering drugs 02/11/14 This shows the utter moral collapse of a secular state without God. Huge numbers of Americans are now extremely weak-minded and are breaking under a broken heart along with stress and fear. There is no let up from the pressure, because events are only getting worse as the Day of the LORD approaches. What a time is this for sharing with these people who Jesus came to heal their broken heart!
I believe that this vast void in the broken hearts of so many people will be filled by the false religion of the antichrist. These people who reject the gospel of Jesus Christ will look to the “Beast” to fill this void. Drug use just might be part of the antichrist religion, and the people are getting ready for it now.
“That’s accurate as far as it goes. But by following the trail further, we arrive at a place far more shocking and consequential. We discover that not only has the traditional distinction between illegal “street drugs” and legal “therapeutic prescription drugs” become so blurred as to be almost nonexistent, but between America’s twin drug epidemics – one illegal, the other legal – well over 70 million Americans are using mind-altering drugs. And that number doesn’t include abusers of alcohol, which adds an additional 60 million Americans. So we’re really talking about 130 million strung-out Americans. How is this possible?”
Scandal of our depressed kids as thousands of under-10s are treated for mental health problems 02/06/14 Look at how very young children are now suffering under a broken heart! The Western society is now breaking down on all levels. These children need to hear about the love of Jesus.
“A worrying 4,391 children aged 10 or under have received treatment for stress, anxiety or depression in the last five years, according to figures from two of Britain’s biggest NHS mental health trusts. But the total number of primary school pupils affected is likely to be far higher.”
Luke 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
