God's Sword of Truth - The Word
It is written...."....thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment."....MATT 5:21 and ROMANS 13:9. There are no options.....no freedom of choice...it is not ones "right". There is a time to die and only the Lord God knows that time for everyone of His creation. No man or woman has a "right or choice" to take their own life for any reason. It is Satanic and evil to do so. A person who takes his or her own life is being as a person possessed of an evil spirit. There is no pain or suffering that can justify such an act. It is only a sign of a total lack of faith in Christ. Anyone who thinks of killing himself/herself is earthly, sensual, devilish and the thought comes, not from above, but, from the pit of hell. You cannot say you believe in the Lord God and serve the devil in any form of suicide, which is killing oneself. If you are sick, call for the elders of the body of Christ and let them pray and anoint the sick with oil in the name of the Lord. Confess your faults one to another, and pray for each other that ye may be healed. The fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Also keep in mind that Christ suffered many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes of the Jews...and was killed, so we must, if need be, do likewise. It is written...."if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us."....ROMANS 8:17-18. Also read Verses 19 thru 26. The Word of God says it all...it is truth to all believers. It is our hope by the Spirit of God.
By faith we can endure all things and "That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ; whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory; receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls."....I PETER 1:7-9. The Word of God is true and faithful, it is our power against all forces of evil from below.
Just as there is evil (Satan, the world, the flesh) there is good (the Holy Spirit and victory in Christ Jesus). There is an appointed time for all things in God's plan...no matter what things seem to be in the flesh...such as pain, suffering, trials, the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open unto their prayers! But the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. Suicide is evil and not of the Lord. I PETER 3:14 "But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye; and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled." Have a good conscience and good conversation in Christ.
Christ suffered for our sins and we must likewise suffer for Him. The suffering that we endure can never repay what He has done for us. Taking our life or any life, out of fear, is pure demon possession and is no answer to faith in Christ, but is of Satan and is death to the spirit and soul which is forever. Having an eternity to think about it is too late. While you are alive and have a free will choice...you must make a quality decision of life now. Suicide ends all life.....period! We must make a spiritual choice...a choice in Christ who is the end of all suffering......period! He has given us the power to overcome all things....if you have faith. Read LUKE 24:49 and JOHN 1:12.
Do you believe? Are you a Christian? Can you follow the WORD? JOHN 17:2 - "As thou has given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou has given him." Christians have the power to overcome ALL things in this world but they sometimes do not have the faith to use it. They let the flesh overcome. They hide behind the pride of flesh...the vision of fear. They follow the vision of deception and the tricks of Satan.
Reality is a human way of life, it deals in fleshly ways; taste, sight, smell, feel. It deals with human life on earth, and inner reactions of this life with each other through customs, traditions, and experience along the way. It has a trial and error way of existence. None of these have a bearing of a life in the spirit of Jesus Christ. The spirit life transcends human life, human life is from the outside, spiritual life is an inner life of the soul, it is super-natural, it has no physical substance. It is a complete freedom of fleshly existence on earth.
By the Word of God, we are special, in I JOHN 5:4, "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world; and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith". There is no escape in suicide, it does not end pain or suffering, it starts real tribulation in hell. It is more than human suffering, it's spiritual, eternal suffering of the soul and spirit, and beyond our human comprehension, it is a reality of life after death, it is the second death to the human spoken of in the Word, and you have God's Word on it. Read REV. 2:11, 20:6, 20:14.
Anyone who thinks you can kill or commit suicide and be of the Lord (a Christian) is deceived and bewitched. It goes against the total spirit of Christ and His teachings.
Suicide has no place in Christian understanding of the Word in any way or reason in our daily life. It cannot be given any credence of faith, or justified by anyone in any form, and if it is done, it is, in fact, opposite of faith. Even the one who assists, in any way, in a suicide is guilty of killing in a moral and spiritual way, and is in danger of the judgement.
If people could only know that the pain in hell is far greater than any pain on earth in the flesh. In fact, if all the pain of humanity, from the beginning to the end of the world, could be felt, it would not be close to one second of pain in hell. You can never compare flesh to spirit, in feeling or pain...it's beyond reality of existence as we know it. You can only have this knowledge by the Spirit and His Word as written in the Bible. It is not human understanding, it is a spiritual understanding.
There is a key word in all this, and the key that unlocks all truth, is called "SPIRITUAL DISCERNMENT". We read in I COR. 2:14, "But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God; for they are foolishness unto him; neither can he know them because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man." Read I COR. 2:16.
In HEBREWS 5:14, it is written, "But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil." By this I know who I am in Christ, and I fully understand my blessing in Christ, and it's to the end of all things and times. No man gave it to me and no man can take it from me.
By His grace am I blessed. I asked and received it by my free will choice, I shall never let it go. By this I am able to write and warn all who contemplate suicide not to allow your decision of life to fall into the hands of Satan, for I again tell you, he is the father of lies.
SUICIDE IS AN ABORTION OF THE SPIRIT, AND YOU SHALL SURELY DIE, DIE, DIE....DON'T DO IT!!!
