According to a national survey by the Canadian Mental Health Association, “In 2019, 2.5% of Canadians reported having had thoughts of suicide in the past year. In comparison, at the height of the pandemic in May 2020, this survey found that 1 in 20 Canadians (6%) had recently had thoughts or feelings of suicide as a result of the pandemic. That’s a staggering increase, and I’m sure if we did a similar survey in the summer of 2021, we would find that the 6% figure has not decreased.

In a normal year in our country, according to Government of Canada statistics, around 11 people commit suicide every day, resulting in around 4,000 deaths per year, but with the onset of the COVID-19 era, there are had a significant increase in these numbers. .

The theme of today’s column is certainly not the most uplifting, but it is necessary to talk about it and bring a perspective to the subject of suicide which is rarely if ever discussed. Allow me to preface my presentation on this topic by referring to other Canadian statistics. In a 21st century Gallup poll, when pollsters asked him, “Do you believe in the devil? 37 percent of us Canadians said ‘yes’, while 17 percent said they weren’t sure, but nearly half of our population, a whopping 45 percent, said categorically do not believe it. So it’s no wonder, based on these statistics, that Charles Baudelaire once said, “The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was to convince the world that he didn’t exist.

Now, in our contemporary secular Canadian society, to suggest that there is such a malevolent being as the Devil is seen, in some eyes, as a religious madman. Traditionally, our society has given little credit to the existence of a real personality called the Devil. Rather, he often viewed him as a mythological being with his usual red costume, forked tail, pointy ears, horns, and trident. But make no mistake dear friend, when you examine Bible truth you discover the reality that Satan, another of his names, has been alive and well on planet earth since the beginning of time.

Open the pages of the Bible and you will discover its influence on the human species. In the Gospel of John, Jesus refers to him as the thief. He said, “The thief has come to seek, destroy and kill. (The Bible, John 10:10) It is the satanic mandate, to destroy you my friend. And he does this primarily by attacking the mind. Really, your mind is the devil’s playground. He will plant thoughts in your mind, and in your deception you will think that these are your own thoughts. “I am not good.” “I will never get over this depression.” “I’ll never get out of the hole.” “Life is not worth living.”

The COVID-19 era has seen a surprising increase in depression. The Devil is at the climax!

The Bible tells the sad story of Judas. He had become the devil’s tool, used as a stool pigeon to betray Jesus Christ. In pointed terms, the Bible says, “Then Satan entered into Judas. (The Bible, Luke 22: 3) Judas was unaware of it, he was completely unaware. But after being used and manipulated, he “got remorseful” (The Bible, Matthew 22: 3) and in his sheer inability to cope with his mental breakdown, we were told, “… (The Bible, Matthew 27: 5)

Dear friend, do not believe for a single minute the experts in Canadian society who categorically state that there is no such thing as the devil. He is, make no mistake, your great enemy, and your only sure and sure defense against him is to have a daily connection with Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Don’t give the devil a thumbs up. Live for God. Fill your mind with Bible truth, and in the battle for your spirit, you will be victorious every time.
