Doctors that study PTSD have come up with programs and therapies to help us become more aware of what exactly is going on from a psychological standpoint. Regardless of the psychological progress we have made in this department, we should not discount the enemy’s ability to contribute to and mock PTSD. It is truly my opinion that PTSD was not so prevalent in previous generations because they were simply more religious and therefore had additional understanding and tactics to combat it, as well as spiritual battle buddies to call on for support. I stand by my thesis that the issues I personally suffer from are not only psychological but spiritual. The problem is it is sometimes hard to tell the difference.
Ordinary as well as Extraordinary demonic influences can look like and even cause some PTSD episodes.
While PTSD is a very real psychological condition, there is also a largely ignored and mostly hidden spiritual correlation to many of the causes and symptoms. This video discusses why Satan and his demons have a field day with combat veterans by using and mimicking PTSD and how they wage war against those of us who have been to physical war. I also describe some of my own experiences, and some tactics for how to combat the demonic. With veteran suicide at an all time high, the progress being made in the psychological department while helpful, is not an ultimate solution, primarily because it does not take into account what I discuss in this video.

I came home from Iraq in 2010 at the age of just 20 years old. like many of my generation, I struggled for years with trying to find my place in the world (sometimes with disastrous consequences). I often felt restless and that everything I was ever going to do paled in comparison to the war I had just been a part of. Oh how wrong I was. The Lord in all of his mercy woke me up to the fact that the most important battle I will ever fight is one that can't always be seen; The one for my soul and for the souls around me. It is against powers and principalities who influence the earthly enemies I had just encountered. Over the last 5 years or so, I have become intimately aware of this battle, and more importantly how to fight it! Although the weapons are different, the concepts are the same. My mission is now to share my knowledge with others, especially my fellow combat veterans who are struggling in the midsts of dysfunction or an identity crisis. I assure you brothers and sisters, we are in the fight of our lives.
