(Worthy News) - A new study confirms that deaths from drugs, alcohol, and/or suicide have reached record numbers.

According to the 2019 Scorecard on State Health System Performance, a study released by the Commonwealth Fund on Wednesday, the opioid epidemic and drug-related deaths continue to rise throughout the United States at alarming rates. West Virginia and Ohio notably out-pace the rest of the country.

Nationally, the rate of death from drug overdose more than doubled between 2005 and 2017. A 10% increase between 2016 and 2017 is also among the highest that the nation has ever seen within such a time frame. [ Source (Read More...) ]

  1. All of the gifts of the Holy Spirit (of God) can be put into three categories. Or so Scripture says. ESV 1 cor 13:13, "So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love." Far too often people read that like it's cherry picken time. "Oh, I'd like the gift of Love from God, the Father. Let's ask Him for Love." Or they do the same regarding "faith" because doing miracles by way of manifesting gifts of Faith, "that would be cool." So, they, then ask God for the gift of faith. Esp, "the Word of Faith" crowd.

    And because most people do not understand what it is to have a gift from God, Almighty, of hope (specifically), they (most people) just skip it entirely. They do not even bother to ask God for it. Or Jesus, same, same. Truth is, with hope, no one feels the desire to "off" themselves anymore. The incredible sadness (grief, more like it) is lifted, with hope. Because, instead of having Dispair, they hope for something or someone, instead. It sounds simple, and actually, it is. When we have hope, it (instead of despair) becomes one of those options for solving life's difficulties that isn't even considered when in Depression. Ever notice that the word Depression isn't in the Bible? That's because it used to be called before the Psycho(ology) crowd got ahold of American English language, it was called Lamentations. That Word is in the (OT) Bible and it's so important it's the name of an entire book. It is so important God caused one of His major prophets, Jerimiah, to be loaded down with lamentations. So, grief, and mourning, are legit and in our Bibles.

    Now, it's not dogma anywhere but because with hope all "depression" is lifted and put away. You can see prophet after prophet and even apostles cured of great grief (how about Peter after he denies Christ and Jesus get's crucified?) Many people do not need pharmacy antidepressants. Maybe some St John's Wort, or 5HTP, or Tryptophan, but not the stuff that ruins a persons abilities to communicate ever again. The Pharma kind that ruin communication pathways which take a direct miracle from God Almighty to then cure once again. All to take the one who cares too much, out of their families, and doctors, misery. None of it ever cures the patients (victims) misery. Except Jesus (Y'shua) who among so many other things, offers us gifts of hope (along with Love and Faith).

    The gift of hope is nothing to be disregarded. Just because it's considered the lessor of the great three steadfast gifts hope is not a minor thing. The suicide rate proves that. If you call upon "the Name" of the God who died for you, the Holy One of Israel, when you find yourself in a situation in which divine intervention is needed/necessary, go for it. It is only the taking of His Name in vain that is considered a sin. Not the "taking" of His Name when you really truly need His intervention.

    And over time, as God proves to you how just how truly Faithful and secure your faith in Him is, hope builds into your life. But it (hope) also is a gift. You, who belong to Messiah, can just ask for it. Did you ever ask a relative of yours for a gift? Hope is esp necessary for those who, for whatever reasons, can not take pharma antidepressants to help them understand all these things. There are some herbal supplements, that can help, for those who can't do them. There is paying attention to the foods we eat if Depression is a problem. Venting is counter-productive, don't involve yourself in it. Though if you've been trained into it as a solution, it may take some time, a bit like quitting nicotine.

    And just as all the (trust) faith one has, must be focused on God's gift to us, Yeshua, for Salvation, so too are all His spiritual gifts.

    • Satan isn't interested in ending all the human lives he can. His interests are in hurting God. It's all about revenge as far as Satan's plans go. Of course, he enjoys a human being suffering, at any age, as much as any true sadist does, even more so, since he is the one who creates sadists out of normal infants. However, there are far too many humans who suffer, and not only are, but can be made to, suffer for decades on end for Satan to pass that up entirely. And medical science only gets better at it. One of the reasons Satan has his enslaved (and many others, but apparently, no longer in Georgia soon) abort their infants in utero and (in some places coming to a US State near you) as infants born, is part and parcel with the making (their mothers esp) others suffer with guilt for having aborted them. It is culturally kinda the worst of murders, isn't it, when someone kills infants? It's true, they really are as close to innocent as any human being ever gets.

      Now, with the advent of Psychotropics, (Mental Illness drugs) it is easy for Satan and his minions (complete with lots of human sadists) to keep lots of human beings alive and suffering continuously, for decades, on end. Sometimes, giving them R&R only makes the pain and suffering worse when it hits them suddenly once again. Esp as they know how horrible it's gonna be and their chances of another reprieve almost zero. And then, there's even more, in Assisted Living Centers and Nursing Homes and those confined "at home."

      Then, there are all the nice beds and cells of the officially incarcerated for him to play with too. Or more accurately, for his minions to play with, directed by Satan's various armies of demons both great and ground floor, who run all the best of the sadistic stuff.

      There's no ability to really hurt God anymore (since Jesus went and rose from that grave) unless Satan gets to hurt God's kids, and the innocent. Besides, there is some great effort Satan needs mankind for, to build something for him. Not sure what that is, but he's been busy working on it for millennia new, and it's still not finished.

      p.s. by "hurting God" I mean God's heart. God hurts, He aches with us, when we suffer. Or perhaps it's that burden that broke Jesus' (Y'shua's) heart, which is what really killed him, his heart burst. That's why "blood and water" flowed when he was speared by a sword by a Roman Soldier after he'd been abused and then hung on that cross.
