Suicidal Thoughts Came From God’s Enemy
I understand people who are suicidal, because I also have struggles with suicidal compulsions and thoughts. I think I have arrived a safer condition for now, but the temptation could come back anytime because the Devil is always plotting and waiting to devour my soul:
1 Peter 5:8
8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Depression and misery are very real. There are times when it seems like there is no reason to live but every reason to die. Deep down I vaguely know that they are the voices of the devils who are assigned by Satan to vex me and convince me to give up my pilgrimage to heaven, but the lies could still seem very convincing even though I know that they are from the enemies.
It was torturous when those times came. All my negative emotions and memories
would break lose. It was very hard to think about what the Bible said when I was like that. When there is such a loud and convincing internal voice inside your head, and when all Hell break lose against you like that, God’s word could seem very tasteless and distant that you just don’t want to quote it or think about it at all.
But every time I make the mental decision to wield God’s word against the enemy and heed the voice of the Holy Spirit, the darkness and hellish torment would dissipate, 10 times out of 10.
Slander: The Ultimate Weapon Of Mass Destruction
Satan is a slanderer. He was one of the archangel, but he conceived pride in his heart and decided to rise a coup against God. (Ezekiel 28:15; Isaiah 14:13-14)
He enlisted the help of many other angels by spreading slanders against God around. (Ezekiel 28:16) Those angels entertained his deceitful talks and slanders and joined his rebellion. Other angels might have doubts after hearing Satan’s accusations against God, but remained loyal to God anyway.
The damage was done and became irreversible. The only solution was to let Satan have his way for a while and show the entire creations that he is wrong and God is right.
If you wonder why it seemed so easy for the fallen angels to get deceived by Satan, just think about your own internal, evil voices that always try to convince you to sin or hate God. Not all internal voice is yours. It can come from the age-old enemy of humanity— Satan.
If God simply silent His enemies and cast them into the lake of fire forever, the tragedy of rebellion might happen again (And there is an eternity for another tragedy to happen, so it will eventually happen), so God used the lasting solution to eliminate evil: by allowing evil and suffering to remain for a time, see my post Why Does God Allow Suffering And Evil?
The Sole Purpose Of The Enemy Is to Get You Into Hell
Satan will try to make you think that you will go to heaven no matter what.
Maybe you have been a good man or woman. Maybe you are a born again Christian. But it is the final condition when you die that counts when it comes to your eternal destination.
If you are forgiven by God when you die, then you are going to heaven. But if you die in sin, then even though you are a born again Christian, you will still end up in hell.
Being a Christian is a lifelong process of living by faith— one day at a time. Anytime you stop living by faith, you are falling from grace.
We become born again by believing in Jesus Christ through faith. Salvation is a gift of God. It is purely grace. No good deed is good enough to get us into heaven. Salvation can only be obtained by repentance and by believing in God’s forgiveness, through Jesus’ atonement for our sins by His sacrifice on the cross.
Anytime we refuse to repent of our sin, we are effectively rejecting the gift of salvation. There is nothing in the Bible that says we cannot reject the gift of salvation once we receive it. In fact, there are quite a few passages that indicate that we can lose it by making conscious decisions to sin, to disbelieve, and/or to not repent. If you want to find out the Biblical proof behind this claim, go to Can You Lose Your Salvation?
If anyone commits suicide, he or she is choosing to die in sin. You can’t commit suicide and then repent later. It’s a paradox. To commit suicide is to choosing to die in sin.
Beside, suicide is still murder. No unrepented murderer can go to heaven, and 1 John 3:15 says, “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.”
I believe most suicidal thoughts have a demonic origin. Spiritual beings can plant thought into our head. They can pretend to speak in our internal voice. They do this because they hate God and His beloved man kind.
Maybe you have a loved one who committed suicide, or maybe you are going through a lot of pains and hurts that you are seriously considering suicide as the way out. But I want to plead with you to accept the truth. Because only the truth can set people free. If we want to stop tragedies from happening again, we need to tell the world the truth.
Satan and his thugs are behind every human tragedy (Of course human has to compromise and agree with Satan first). The only way we can stop them is by exposing their operations and defeat them.
If we refuse to believe there are malign spiritual force working from behind the scene, and if we refuse to believe that what they are doing is getting people into hell, then no one will stop them.
It’s a spiritual warfare. God has already given us mighty weapons to defeat and torment the enemies. Instead of being tormented by them, we can take up arms and torment them back. This is achieved by diligent prayers, active proclamations of God’s word, and vibrant fellowship with God’s people.
If anyone loses this battle and ends up in hell, then the demons that torment this person on earth will continue to torment him or her in hell. By then, it will be forever too late for revenge.
Won’t you hate it if someone pull a prank on you and he can do it to you forever but you can’t fight back? What demons do to us is more than pranks, and they will enjoy 1000 times more with the sadistic games they can do to us if we end up in hell. They will make us experience ultimate horror and humiliation there, over and over again, 24/7 non stop.
Hell bound souls can hear and see demons. They do get tortured by them physically and verbally abused by them.
The only time you can inflict punishment on them and protect your loved ones here is the time you have on earth! Join the army of God and take up the spiritual weapons God gives you to fight back!
