Suicidal Thoughts - Serious thought on how to end one's life is called suicide thoughts.
Who committed suicide in the Bible - Few people who killed themselves in the Bible.
1. Matthew 27:5 So Judas threw the money into the temple and left. Then he went away and hanged himself.
2. 1 Samuel 31:4-5 ...Saul took his own sword and fell on it. When the armor-bearer saw that Saul was dead, he too fell on his sword and died with him.
How suicidal thoughts starts - Origin of suicidal thoughts?
1. The Bible says when king Saul disobeyed God in 1Samuel 16:14 "But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him." Later from 1Samuel 19:9-10 we find how king Saul wanted to kill David. But in the end King Saul ends his own life i.e. he committed suicide.
2. Similarly we find in Luke 22:3-4 Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve. And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus.
So the thought to kill and the start of suicidal thoughts in a person is by the evil spirits.
Why is Satan putting suicidal thought into a person?
The Lord created the angel of light with great beauty and power to praise the Lord but when he became proud of himself and wished to become God, he was punished into the Earth and became Satan the evil one. Man was created in his place to praise the Lord Isaiah 43:21. Satan in his anger is trying his best to destroy the Lord's creation by making man to disobey (sin) God's commandments by all his evil ways like anger, pride, lust, suicidal thoughts etc. But the God who created us wants us to leave a victorious life Genesis 1:28.
How and when does Satan enters into a person?
Jesus tells in John 10:9-10 I am the gate; whoever enters through me will be saved. They will come in and go out, and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. The Lord also said in Revelation 3:20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
Why Jesus is the gate and Satan sneaking in through week places?
Jesus is gentle and righteous, even when we are in sin Jesus loves us. He will (knock at your door) show you how good & holy your life will be if you obey Him and then the almighty creator God waits patiently for your invitation. If you invite Jesus, He will come in your life and you will be bless forever and ever, what a Joy. I was a dirty sinner but when I was warned in a prayer meeting I obeyed the word of God and invited Jesus in me, my life changed, no bad habits, no tension (because of faith in God) what a peace & Joy in the Lord.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
