Bible Reading:   2 Samuel 17:23, Matthew 27:5

Memory Verse: You desire and do not have, so you murder. You covet and cannot obtain, so you fight and quarrel. You do not have, because you do not ask. James 4:2 (ESV)

Aokigahara, Wikipedia reports is called (青木ヶ原, ‘Blue Tree Meadow’), and also known as the Sea of Trees (樹海, Jukai), is a forest on the northwestern flank of Mount Fuji on the island of Honshu in Japan. The forest has a historical reputation as a home to yūrei: ghosts of the dead in Japanese mythology. At least since the 1960s, Aokigahara has become associated with suicide, eventually becoming known in English by the nickname “the Suicide Forest”, and gaining a reputation as one of the world’s most-used suicide sites.

Aokigahara is sometimes referred to as the most popular site for suicide in Japan. In 2003, 105 bodies were found in the forest, exceeding the previous record of 78 in 2002. In 2010, the police recorded more than 200 people having attempted suicide in the forest, of whom 54 completed the act. Suicides are said to increase during March, the end of the fiscal year in Japan. As of 2011, the most common means of suicide in the forest were hanging or drug overdose. 

Suicide is the act of intentionally causing one’s own death. While there may be physical and psychological factors provoking suicidal thoughts such a stress and depression, suicide is many times more spiritual than physical. Here is a location that calls people unto self murder. Take it or leave it, there is an evil altar speaking in Aokigahara and until it is addressed, perhaps the suicide count in that place shall continue to rise. The power of the eater of flesh an drinker of blood is actively at work in that place. Territorial deliverance is highly suggested.

Sometimes ago, a woman in her late 40s’ working in a multinational company drank a particular pesticide and took her own life. Friends say she has being suffering silently but severly from depression. Prior to that time she has had two failed relationships. 

Dear brother and dear sister, rely on Jesus as the author and finisher of your faith irrespective of what you may be going through. Suicide is one sure way to hell – always remember that. Seek Pastoral and Parental support. Don’t bottle up your suicidal thoughts all to yourself. Talk to someone. Know for sure that at the brink of great success comes great satanic assault from the pit of hell. 

Quote:  Suicide is one short cut away from hell. Reject it.

Prophetic Decree: Internal and external altar of suicide catch fire, in Jesus name.
