Suicide

 

Scripture

Mark 9:22 KJVer    It (the demon/evil spirit) has cast him into the fire & into the water to destroy him.
Mark 9:26 KJVer    The (evil) spirit cried, rent him, & came out of him.  He was as one dead, insomuch that many said, "He is dead."  But Jesus took him by the hand & lifted him up.  He arose.

Chapter 6 The Ekklesia shares a story about 1997 local teen suicides at Bog Cove, Micmac First Nation reserve, USA.  It was revealed that a local witch doctor was teaching the youth how to talk to the (evil)"spirits", resulting in many suicides.  After ministering to the witch doctor & praying against suicide, there were no more documented Micmac Indian suicides there.  Chapter 9 The Sword also shares that the "spirit of suicide" was overcome at Sioux Standing Rock reservation.

Walsh, Shiela 2/19/2020 - https://lifetoday.org/video/praying-women-part-4/ + Transcript @
https://lifetoday.org/assets/files/2-19-20e-SW-Praying-Women-4.pdf - Shiela's dad's "brain aneurism didn't kill him, but it changed his life and the lives of our whole family overnight. The immediate impact was that he was paralyzed down one side and lost the ability to speak. But there was a far, far greater storm on the horizon. As days turned into weeks his behavior began to deteriorate. He went from being just a loving, kind dad to an angry, unpredictable and ultimately violent stranger. When it was no longer safe for us to have him in our home he was taken to our local psychiatric hospital. He managed to escape one night and took his own life, drowning in the river that runs through our town."
(Shiela told the MD that her) "dad had a brain aneurism when he was 34. He told Barry to take me straight to the closest hospital emergency room. He said, 'Tell them that you need a C.T. Scan with dye, and you need it now.'"
