By Mike Ramey | In part one of this look at suicide, we looked at how widespread this malady really is. We left off at looking at some of the national snapshots in how suicide has been stalking its victims, and how Satan is behind this devilish device. We pick up in how the soul is breached through the mind and how suicidal thoughts can enter...
Let me provide an example of one of these breaches. It has been said that marijuana is a ‘gateway’ or ‘doorway’ drug. Increasing use of it will lead the user to experiment with other, more potent drugs in order to maintain their ‘high’ for longer, and longer periods of time. What have we been seeing around our country at the state level? Right. Increasing approval of the use of marijuana for medical or recreational purposes by the states. At last count, there were 30 states and the District of Columbia where this issue has already been approved, in one form or the other. What are we seeing exhibited by athletes and entertainment wizards of cool? Marijuana use has not only increased--but it is being touted as not impacting these public figures in the performance of their skills and art.
Unfortunately, what one does NOT hear is all of the misery and carnage left by such legalization--including the rising numbers of suicides. Numbers, I might add that are often reported in the media by ones or twos, while the ‘official’ numbers crunchers are recording them in the tens and twenties.
ANOTHER DOORWAY BREACH--THE OCCULT:
Satan does not have to shout to enter the human mind. He whispers. In the garden of Eden, Satan did not shout at Eve, and look at the destruction that happened as a result. His packages never change--but their wrappings do change with the times.
Over the last five to eight years, there has been a marked increase in occult-related content on the big and small screens--some of it glorifying suicide. With the widespread use of the Internet, one can tap into their occult fantasies through a number of web venues and reading sources. In the music world, more and more artists have been paying tribute to the Illuminati, the Boule, or other such unholy deities through their practices of ‘spirit cooking’ or other demonic-laced items. We have also seen a few colleges allowing for the creation of Satanism clubs on campus, and have seen a few state legislatures allowing for the building of statues ON state property that worship Satan.
Even those practicing witchcraft have become bolder in their existence and pursuits. Soon after Donald J. Trump was elected the 45th President of the United States, published reports began to surface concerning witches of various ranks and powers attempting to place hexes and curses upon President Trump and his administration. As far as I know, they haven’t let up yet. THIS is the reason why we are to pray for our leaders (Romans 13). Even Halloween has been expanded into the entire month of October, with Halloween decorations going up in stores earlier and earlier each year, causing adults and children to celebrate their ‘favorite holiday’. God says not to mess with the occult under ANY circumstances, as it will impact your spirit and physical body. Suicide IS one of the very real side effects rising from occult involvement (Heavy Burdens--Numbers 11:10-15 KJV; Sickness/Illness--Isaiah 38:9-20 KJV). Those who practice ANY form of witchcraft, in the end, if they do NOT repent, are the victim of the dark master they willingly serve.
In the area of Modern Street Gangs--one of my areas of expertise--occult activities are also on the rise. In Central and South America, transnational gangs such as MS-13 and 18th Street--among others--are known to have their own witch doctors and/or witches to cast spells on behalf of the gang. In Mexico, the cartels worship the demonic deity Santa Muerta (Our Lady Of Death), carve her likeness on their weapons and rely on her to ‘protect’ them from law enforcement. These groups have been known to cast spells on law enforcement agencies in their neck of the woods. As they have been migrating illegally into the United States, they have been bringing their own brand of witchcraft with them, and teaching their occult ways to American gangs and gang members to use against U.S. law enforcement agencies.
Is it any wonder that there have been a rising number of Law Enforcement Officer (LEO) suicides lately? Some police stations have reported to having found occult trappings and/or hexes placed on police by drug gangs and cartels…some domestic; some transnational.
Still more to come...in part three.
