The Death Of My Daughter

by Don Krow

Please don’t be upset when I say, I have the same basic needs that you have. The need for love, acceptance, communication, a solid faith in God and a purpose in life.

I had a most unusual experience happen to me on December 14, 1981 which I would like to share with you. On that day my wife gave birth (it happened to be a home birth) to identical twins. The firstborn was perfectly normal in every way. The second was what is known to the medical profession as stillborn. Of course you know that “stillborn” means “dead.” At this point I HESITATE TO TELL YOU THE REST OF THE STORY BECAUSE IT IS SO UNUSUAL AND ALMOST UNBELIEVABLE.

Regardless of what our natural mind tells us, there is a spiritual realm that is involved in this world. Before God, what I am telling you is the truth. A midwife that had worked at a high risk maternity center in El Paso, Texas tried to revive my second child with all medically known procedures and eventually gave up. At this point, I had accepted her death, but wanted to hold her. As I reached to pick her up, I WAS SUDDENLY KNOCKED BACK AND PARALYZED momentarily by an evil force. The Bible calls these evil forces, demons. I KNOW IT SOUNDS BIZARRE, but I took authority over this demon in Jesus’ Name and commanded it to leave. I then began to command life to come into the child. At this point the child took a breath and then ceased to breathe. Again I said, “I command you to leave and life to come into this child in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” AT THAT MOMENT THE CHILD BREATHED AND THIS TIME CONTINUED TO BREATHE. SHE WILL BE 16 YEARS OLD on December 14, 1997. Because I had a tape recorder going during this birth, I was able to time the events that took place. MY DAUGHTER WAS NOT BREATHING ON HER OWN UNTIL A PERIOD OF 8 MINUTES had transpired. You know and I know that even though she is alive today, SHE SHOULD HAVE BRAIN DAMAGE. I want you to know that she is perfectly normal in every way and excels in her school work.

Since the time of the twins’ birth I’ve studied the Bible a lot. I have discovered that there is a conflict between two kings and two kingdoms (Col. 1:13-14). What do you think a person would need to do to enter God’s kingdom? Keep God’s law? Live the best he can? etc… If that is your answer then tell me, Why did Christ die? The Simple English New Testament states, “If the law could have made us right with God, then Christ died for nothing!” (Gal. 2:21). According to this verse, do you see any other way to heaven except through Jesus Christ? Jesus said…”I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (Jn. 14:6).

Would you consider turning to Him today for the forgiveness of your sins and the newness of life that He offers? (2 Cor. 5:17)

I would like to talk to you about this, because I care about you. You may contact me or someone who knows me at WJoKrow@aol.com

A Point About Faith and Confession

0

I want to make a point about faith and confession. I believe in confession. I believe in the power of what we say. I often speak out loud the Scripture, knowing that it builds faith in my heart and words have power.

However, simple faith does not need to continually remind itself. If I am swinging and playing with my daughter, then she doesn’t need to continually confess “I believe I receive my Father will not drop me”. She knows me – her relationship with me leads to her trust and her confidence.

In my early days of walking by faith, and bear in mind I came from a religious background that had some poor theology and a whole bunch of doubt and unbelief, I had to confess three times a day healing Scriptures when my son was ill. I had to pace the floor speaking the Word saying “I believe I receive my son’s healing. I believe by His stripes my son is healed.”

Now, 12 years later on, I don’t do that any more. I still speak the Word, but I, and my family, walk in health due to faith in the Lord which is based not on ritual, but on relationship.

Faith grows. Confession is a fine place to start, and we should never reach the place where we are making negative confessions, but faith grows into faith based on relationship due to continual experience of the Lord through His Word.

If I ever am stepping out and I lack peace about something, I will always check out my confession. But I want to be in the place where I trust the Lord because I know Him.

Paul said “I know in whom I have believed”.

Blessings,
Ben
