What causes people to become so thoroughly disillusioned? One is heredity, another is environment. Physical diseases may also cause the problem. Various drugs, legal and illegal may also cause the problem. However, even with psychiatric treatment, the mental illness is not cured, only controlled so that the individual may lead as close to a normal life as possible. Few megalomaniacs, however, seek treatment because they dont trust others and feel they may actually be harmed.The megalomaniac differs from the narcissist by the fact that he wishes to be powerful rather than charming, and seeks to be feared rather than loved. To this type belong many lunatics and most of the great men of history.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-12:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Be assured, saints, when you hear someone state that they are one of the Two Witnesses in the Book of Revelation you are hearing a person with a psychopathological condition with delusional fantasies of grandeur, usually of wealth, power or omnipotence.These two witnesses/lampstands are symbols of (1) the source, i.e., the word and the Holy Spirit of God, and of (2) the manifestation of the word and Spirit of God through the prophetic gift of God. The two witnesses represent one corporate worldwide body of prophets who prophesy to those who name the name of Christ and also to those who deny Christ.
