Suicide and Depression

Depression or Suicide
Are depression and suicide outside of God’s will and desires for us?
Yes they are, and here are the scriptures to teach us about such things.
These scriptures and many more can teach us how to abide in God’s sovereignty, healing, hope, and power for our lives.

1. Depression and Suicide reject God’s Sovereignty
What is the definition of God’s Sovereignty?
From Easton’s Bible Dictionary:
Sovereignty of God, his absolute right to do all things according to his own good pleasure.

What is God’s Sovereignty towards us?
1Peter 5:6-7
6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (NIV)
Daniel 4:35
35 And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou? (KJV)
Romans 9:15-18
15 For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion
16 It does not, therefore, depend on man’s desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.
17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh: “I raised you up for this very purpose, that I might display my power in you and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth
18 Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden. (NIV)
What should a person do that has suicidal thoughts or depression to stay inside the will of God?
Philippians 4:6-7
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (NIV)
Psalm 55:22
22 Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall. (NIV)
1Peter 5:6-7
6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. (NIV)

2. Depression and Suicide reject God’s power to heal

What is the definition of God’s healing?

12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.
13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. (NIV)

18 who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by evil spirits were cured,
19 and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all.
20 Looking at his disciples, he said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God.
21 Blessed are you who hunger now, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.
22 Blessed are you when men hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.

20 which he exerted in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms,

History of Halloween!

I have recently put some time into wondering why Christian’s celebrate a Pagan Holiday such as Halloween. For that reason I set out on a quest for the answers. What I found astounded me. The way history has unfolded through the years is amazing. The way people have placed merit in some of the wrong places. The following is what I found out. I will never view Halloween the same again.

Back in the times before 43AD the Celtics had Pagan festivals called “Beltane” and “Samhain” (pronounced Sah-ween). “Beltane” was the beginning of summer festival and “Samhain” was their end of summer festival, preparing for the long winter. The Celts believed that during the “Samhain” festival the spiritual world and the human world division between the two worlds became very thin, when hostile supernatural forces were active and ghosts and spirits were free to wander as they wished. They had the fear that the dead would come back and haunt them. The Celts would have their religious priests carry out the rituals in the open air dressed as a dead person or animal. The priests were called Druids, members of pagan orders. Druids would start bonfires where they sacrificed crops, animals, and even humans to the gods to keep the Celts communities from being haunted. During the Festival of Samhain, fires would be lit which would burn all through the winter and sacrifices would be offered to the gods on the fires. This practice of burning humans was stopped around 1600. During this time the children of the village would “beg” the more wealthy of the villagers for food or treats to eat during the long winters.

Now, also back in the times before 43AD, the Romans observed the holiday of Feralia, intended to give rest and peace to the departed. Participants made sacrifices in honor of the dead, offered up prayers for them, and made oblations to them. Another festival the Romans observed was the pagan holiday to honor Pomona, the Roman goddess of fruit and trees.

When The Romans took over the Celtic land sometime around 43AD the Celts and the Roman festivals became meshed together.

But, as the influence of Christianity spread into Celtic lands, in the 7th century, Pope Boniface IV introduced “All Saints’ Day” to be observed on May 13 with “All Hallows’ Eve” (‘hallow’ means ‘saint’) being on May 12 to start at sun down. This was to be a time to honor saints and martyrs. For Christians, this was an opportunity for remembering before God all the saints who had died and all the dead in the Christian community. Pope Boniface IV’s plan was to replace the pagan festival “Beltane”, which was held on May 1. Remember “Beltane” was a festival the pagan people held to honor their dead at the beginning of summer.

In 834, Gregory III moved “All Saint’s Day” from May 13 to Nov. 1 in an attempt to once again replace a pagan festival “Samhain” their end of summer festival. When Gregory lll moved “All Saint’s Day” to November 1, Oct. 31 thus became All Hallows’ Eve (‘hallow’ means ‘saint’).

Sadly, many of the customs connected with the pagan festivals for the dead have survived to the present.

In 1517, a monk named Martin Luther honored the “Faithful Saints” and “Martyrs” of the past by choosing “All Saints Day Eve” (October 31) as the day to publicly charge the Church hierarchy with abandoning biblical faith. This became known as “Reformation Day,” a fitting celebration of the restoration of the church. The same Biblical Faith held by the saints throughout church history.

So I suppose you would have to ask yourself, what do I choose to celebrate, and how will I celebrate it? If you are dressing up and trick or treating I would say you are celebrating the pagan festivals of their dead.  If you are praying and remembering the Martyrs, Saints, Martin Luther and the Reformation of The Church, then I would say you are in great company,  since that is what I choose to celebrate.

I believe if you give in and follow on the dress tails of the pagan festivals, then you are not practicing what The Bible teaches. The Bible teaches Christians to come out from the world, and not be like the world.

What will you choose this Halloween?

Amazing Grace

I am consumed tonight by demons of worry, anger, grief, sadness, and guilt. I cry out to God and I feel as if He does not hear me, though I know He does. There are so many issues and people. How did I get here. I am trying to be strong but fear I am losing this battle.  I just want it to all stop. I feel the need to do something drastic to make it stop, and if I do there will be consequences for that too. See there are consequences to every single decision we have made and will make as human beings. Whether it is a good or bad consequence. There is guilt from my past, anger from my present, sadness in both. I see more grief and worry in my future. My heart tells me to continue to cry out to God, but my mind detains me. Are the people of this world so lost that they enjoy the infliction of pain on others or do they just not care? What if I am not strong enough to endure? What if God gives up on me? What if I am in the eye of my storm? Will the storm weaken and I grow stronger or will the storm consume me and leave me empty and alone? I often envision death as it looks comfortingly at me.  “Amazing Grace” is the only song lyrics or thought that takes me away from this whirlwind called life.

Resting in Christ ALL the time!

I have been hurt so much recently by miserable and vindictive people. I have questioned why God would allow so much pain and anger in my life! I mean here I am trying so hard to live a Godly life; so how dare God allow them to hurt me so deeply. Well, note to self that it is not about them. It is about my weakness for allowing them to control, but more importantly it is about my lack of dependence and trust in God. If I am trusting and depending on God as I should be then their hateful ways and misery would not effect me so strongly.  I instead would be praying for them without ceasing as Christ has directed us to. I would receive and give forgiveness. I would pray for their souls. And then I should let it go and rest in Christ’s strength.
