Spike in teenage suicides no fluke, study finds… Reuters

CHICAGO (Reuters) – A troubling one-year spike in youth suicides in the United States reported last year is not a fluke and should be taken seriously, U.S. researchers said on Tuesday…

Last year, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported an 18 percent increase in suicide rates for Americans under age 19 in 2004, reversing more than a decade of declines.

Thoughts of suicide? Stop thinking!

Suicide is one of the most blatant acts of rebellion against one of the most basic principles of God’s word…

“Thou shalt not kill”

When God gave this instruction to His people, the killing spoke of the unjust killing of the innocent. When we consider the commandment we probably perceive it in the terms of another, but consider the other, the one doing the killing taking his/her own life. It is against the word of God my friend, and it ought not to be.

One can find a multitude of reasons as to the justification. You may think that you physical conditional is terminal or that you are undergoing some gross unbearable persecution. We even find this same thought process in the word of God, when men of God (Moses, Elijah, Job, Apostle Paul, etc…)were so distressed and so oppressed that they wished that they might die. But we find two very important things.

 

  1. 1.)They did not commit suicide.
  2. 2.)That God delivered them from those demonic thoughts.

Now we are getting to the root of the problem. Satan is not only a liar, and a thief, but he is also a murder, a killer, and desires nothing but to destroy. He thrives on death, and more importantly the death of the soul that knoweth not the Lord.

One must not allow Satan to deceive concerning this sovereign right of God. Time and time again we see evidence of God as the Author of life. Women and wombs that were barren and dead are quickened to bring forth life. But not only do we see the sovereignty of God in life, He reserves the right to control ones days. Let us consider what Job said to God….

“Man’s days are determined; you O God have decreed the number of his months and have set limits he cannot exceed”.

So when man takes this action into his own hand he in essence is taking a responsibility that God has reserved unto Himself.

Please consider that this is exactally what Satan wants the unstable soul to do….

“for God doeth know that in the day that ye eat thereof, ye shall be as God”.

When an individual is disobedient to the word of God, he/she in essence is saying I am God and I will do as I choose. The same is when an individual takes the life of an innocent individual whether it be the life of another or themselves.

The article from Reuters reveals an influx of young people that are taking their own lives through the acts of suicide. The doctrine of Satan has saturated their minds with the hopelessness of their own situation to the extent that one sees no avenue of escape from this anit-God, demonic thinking. So sad.

We have all heard the old adage ‘if you want to dance, you gotta pay the piper’. In most situations, this may be true, but not when one is dancing with demons; they bring their own music and freely frolic in their spirit of deception.

My friend if you find yourself in a seeming hopeless situation and are considering checking on out, consider the hope that is found in Jesus Christ and Him alone.

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30
