No One Evil for Evil
Savi, My question is concerning grief. I am a
born-again Christian and so was my wife and 4
children. Almost 7 years ago my wife passed away
after a 27 year marriage due to an aneurysm. One
year and a half, my oldest daughter, was killed
in a botched robbery attempt. She was 24. Two
years after my second daughter was killed in a
car accident. She was also 24. Three months ago
my youngest son committed suicide due to depression
over these losses in spite of strong family support
system and medical treatment. He lived 24 hrs.
and was the only one I was able to say goodbye
before he flew home. He was 22. My last child,
a son [25 yrs. old] and I remain. Any advice on
how one deals with this in a healthy way? Before
we could grieve for one very long we lost another.
One more: Both daughters died approximately 2
yrs apart and both at 24. My son lived 24 hrs
almost to the minute. I feel 24 is an important
number in this situation for it is the number
for God's People - 12 for the O.T. [12 tribes
of Israel and 12 for the N.T. [ 12 Apostles].
It seemed God was assuring me they were in the
number. My wife passed away at 40, a Jewish generation.
What is your take on this? - Thanks, M
have suffered great loss. This can be a death
curse on your family that needs to be broken.
Read Hebrews 2:14-15. You must examine all areas
of your life and see if there are any open doors
for Satan to come in
and then if you find any, you must close them.
Also examine your ancestors bloodline. Forgiveness
to anyone that caused you or your family pain
is necessary. It is commanded by God to forgive
so you and your family can overcome the work of
the devil. The Bible says in Romans 12:14-21 says,
"Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard
for good things in the sight of all men. If it
is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably
with all men. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves,
but rather give place to wrath; for it is written,
“Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord.
Therefore “ If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
If he is thirsty, give him a drink; For in so
doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.”
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil
with good." -
