Another well-to-do beautiful family destroyed by the devil and disobedience to God’s Word. People who look like they have it all don’t have it all if God is not the center of their lives and if they are not obedient to His Word. Contrary to what many people believe, today, there is a devil lose like a heart-seeking missile destroying beautiful families. Is your family next? Is your family headed in the same direction? It is inexplicable why so many families who seem to have it all are destroyed this way without the devil and his demons doing it.
According to the Dallas Morning News:
The 5-year-old daughter of two college professors was found unharmed at the scene of a suspected murder-suicide in Rockwall where a fire was extinguished Monday morning.
Emergency workers discovered the bodies of the girl’s parents, Hyun Seop “Harry” Lee and Yoon “Debbie” Kim, inside their home in the 1200 block of White Water Lane at about 5 a.m.
Rockwall police said they suspect Lee fatally shot his wife, started the fire to cover it up and then killed himself.
The couple’s daughter was found asleep in a car parked on the driveway.
McGrew confirmed that police are investigating a Facebook post that appeared on Lee’s account early Monday that was visible to his friends on the site.
The post, written in Korean, seems to be a suicide note and a list of grievances written by Lee about his wife. He complained that Kim had been “a disrespectful wife” and that she hadn’t treated his parents well.
“I’m so sick and tired of her making important life decisions without talking with me,” he wrote. “All my suggestions are ignored. She always did it in her favor. “
Lee went on, saying his wife had accused him of being paranoid that she was cheating on him. He said he felt he was not a priority to Kim.
“I will face my death with a smile,” he wrote. “Goodbye.”
Lee, 42, had pursued a doctoral degree in engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, according to his LinkedIn page. He also listed bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Hanyang University in Seoul, South Korea.
He was an assistant professor in Grambling State University’s industrial and engineering technology program for almost two years before he died.
Kim, 39, was an assistant professor of engineering at Texas A&M University-Commerce, where she had worked for three years. She also studied engineering at Hanyang University and was a postdoctoral fellow at Georgia Tech, according to her LinkedIn page.
A group of A&M-Commerce engineering students whom Kim taught set up a GoFundMe campaign to gather donations for her daughter. One of the students, Philip Dattilo, said she was one of the “kindest and most caring professors” he had.
We are not sure, but it is very likely that this dear couple were believers for many South Koreans are devout Christians. This writer has been to South Korea, so I know. But that does not matter. If a Christian family does not take heed to the “family verses” as presented in the Word of God and pray without ceasing, such tragedy will continue. We are living in perilous times because there is a devil loose. Below are the “family verses” that your family ought to read daily:
Ephesians 5:22 through Ephesians 6:
22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
6 1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.
2 Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;
3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
4 And, ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
5 Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
7 With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
8 Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
21 But that ye also may know my affairs, and how I do, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in the Lord, shall make known to you all things:
22 Whom I have sent unto you for the same purpose, that ye might know our affairs, and that he might comfort your hearts.
23 Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
24 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
