A Tribute to Robin

Post 89 of 249

Robin

Our precious daughter Robin, who lived for Jesus with all of her heart, went to live with Him this past Friday. She revealed clearly to everyone what Jesus meant by “abundant life.” She lived in His peace and passed from this world in His prevailing peace that passes understanding. Amazing Grace how sweet it is.

Betty and I, along with Robin’s love-filled husband Kenny, their three children, and all of our family thank you for your concern and prayers. What a daughter, wife, mother, sister, and faithful witness she was during her 40 year journey on this earth. She was truly a bright light in a dark world.

Mom and I sure love you, miss you, and will see you someday when you shout, “Mom and Dad come see The King of Kings in person, isn’t He awesome!” Indeed He is and we saw Him in you every time we were together. We want everyone to someday join us forever in His presence.

Dear James and Betty,
I am so sorry for your loss. On Dec 27,2011 we lost our dear son Shaun, he had a 5 year battle with cancer and was very brave and always proclaimed winning as well. It is the most heartbreaking thing I can ever imagine happening. I am so thank we have Jesus to carry us through and the hope of being together in heaven with the King of Kings one day. My our Lord bless you today and everyday.

Today is July 30th & I just arrived home and switch on the TV(TBN), Sheri Shephard was the guest on Life Today.
Then I heard James mention the loss of dear ROBIN!! I had no clue until now, so I had to search to find info.
I just want to send my prayers for the entire family(parents husband & children). May our God continue to cover you all and comfort you in all times of need.
God bless,

You have blessed so many for so long. We have never lost a child but have lost a young man that we counted as our own in a devastating accident. In the process we lost our best earthly friends, his parents, who just can’t be with us without thinking of him. No one can heal your pain except Jesus. We love you and are praying for you fervently. Hold on to him Betty.

I just found out today about the loss of your beautiful daughter. I watch your show all the time in the uk and so much like the gentleness but powerful teaching both of you give.. God bless you and your family.

Just heard of the passing of your precious daughter, during today’s program. My heart hurts for you, your wife, Robin’s husband and her children. I will definitely pray for the entire family. Sir, I think you and yor son also need some time away to mourn. May God strengthen you and may He enlarge your territory. God bless you and may He continue to comfort all of you.

James and Betty,
May you be comforted in the Holy Spirit for He is the only one who can truly comfort you at a time like this.

Psalm 116:15 Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. I have to remind myself of this often as my husband of 40 years lost his battle with cancer in June. God blessed us with 3 plus years beyond the diagnosis. I praise My God for his mercy and grace toward us. My heart breaks at your loss and mine but rejoices at Heaven’s gain. We really did not lose. We won! We will spend eternity in the splendor of His glory. I know the comfort of God and I know He will comfort you. The first months are so very hard because the enemy brings out the ‘big guns’. I do not need to explain I know you understand. Praise God he asked me if He, I AM, was sovereign or not in my life. “Oh course you are Sovereign! At that the battle was over the enemy left. Peace flooded my heart. I miss my love so much and so do his daughters and grandchildren but …” we sorrow not as others which have no hope.” 1Thess. 4:13b

I’m so sorry for the loss of your precious Robin. The love you shared will never die. Her legacy of love lives on in those
beautiful grand-children and all those she touched. God will not leave you comfortless. God bless you and your family.
Thank you for showing the world that we can grieve with Hope In Christ.

We have been pastoring for nearly 40years and done lots of funerals, but nothing is ever like attendig your own childs. Look up, don’t get off course we still need you guys here on earth to keep teaching us televsion watchers(smile) about the coming of the Lord. In His Love, FirstLady, Barbara

I also just learned of Robin’s death this week. As parents to lose a child at any age is a heartbreaking experience, but as Christians we have the greatest Comforter of all. Knowing your precious daughter was a Child of the King as He radiated through her life on earth and that you will meet her again is such a blessing in her loss. My thoughts, prayers and love are with you and the rest of the family.

Karen McCaskillFebruary 27, 2013 at 1:00 amReply

I have never met Robin but I have heard you speak of her on your show. I felt the love from your hearts then and I must say that’s the love that will carry you through. May God forever keep his arms around you.

LindaFebruary 26, 2013 at 9:53 pmReply

James and Betty I was just home from the hospital and sick during the time Robin went home to be with her Savior. I was watching 486 cable and your “old” program was sharing your lose of Robin. On your newer programs 18 and 20 cable there was no mention of Robin, Jan. or Feb. So I am just getting the news today 2/26/2013 of your great loss. My heart goes out to you and Betty and the family and grandchildren. God is our strength and comforter. I pray God’s presence and love surround all during this difficult time. Your in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Betty and James,
May our Lord’s mother, who lived through the excruiating ‘piercing of her human heart” as she watched helplessly the crushing pain inflicted on her son, Christ Jesus as he died on the cross, comfort you, soothe you, assure you deeply that her blessed son, the Son of God, is your daughter’s Robin resurrection.

Lord have mercy on our human limitations to know with such sure truth, as our Lord, Christ Jesus knew, that all that is not well, shall be made well.

I love you both so much. I know you faith is a bright as the north star, but I also know that as human to human you are deeply pained over the death of your daughter. I pray, when you can’t. But I know our Lord prays fervently without ceasing all the day and night long for our salvation and life in him.

Dear James & Betty, I watch your programs every week, especially Wednesdays with Beth and I don’t know HOW I missed hearing this news about Robin. I am so sorry for your loss and pray for the peace of the sweet Holy Spirit to cover and keep you all. Robin is enjoying the glory of seeing our Savior FACE to FACE!. I am so glad you have that assurance and you guys did a wonderful job of raising her. You gave her Jesus and then she passed it on to her children and all those around her. What an awesome heritage! Lifting you guys up in prayer. May God bless you with His continual peace.

Good morning
My deepest sympathy to the Robison’s family, I watch you daily and I cried so hard this morning, because I am so disapointed that I missed hearing of the pasting of Robin until now, I am so glad I was made aware today, I am so sad, but looking at the two of you this morning all I can do is smile for the peace I see in you both. And yes I will be watching on Thursday, February 28. We know she is with God and we continue to pray for you and with you and for her husband and children…Thank you and God bless you. Our Sympathy and Love.

I am grieving alongside you, as my 40 year-old-sister passed away this past September. When I heard about Robin’s testimony of winning, I told my sister that she too was going to WIN, whether she was cured of the cancer this side of heaven or on the other side. Now they are winning TOGETHER!!!!

I have just read the many touching & heart felt love from each person who replied to the advancement of your daughter
Robin to heaven. I agree with each of them for your peace & comfort that only God could give to you & your family.
My mom, shy of 2months of 93 yrs old, went to be with Jesus also on Aug. 17th. No matter the age I don’t think there is a time when you can truly let go & realize they are not here physically because that’s just it, it is only physical. They are not really gone just advanced to heaven before we are, they are not dead they are more alive than we are. What a awesome God we have to have figured that out before hand & made it happen through our wonderful Savior, Jesus Christ!! I feel your pain & wanted you to know that & I look forward to meeting Robin some day. God bless each of you.

Betty and James, My heart aches so much for you and the whole family. Eleven years ago , our beautiful daughter Lea Ann went to live with the Lord. She was 37 and lived with leukemia for 15 months. She also had three children , all adopted. One from here and two from Korea. She loved the Lord with all her heart. We thank God for the 37 years we had her. She touched so many lives , as your Robin did. Our prayers are with you and family. God’s Blessings and Peace.

Robin is in the throne room of the Ancient of Days! She joins the heavenly host singing “holy holy holy is The Lord God Almighty…”. Why would we deprive her or delay that glorious moment? Our fleshly vision is so narrowed to our life experiences, but she stands in her new immortal body in the very Presence of Jesus! We don’t want to lose sight of God’s perfect love for each of us. This is where we stand firmly on the Rock, Our Savior, Jesus Christ. When the ground trembles and shakes all we know or hold dear, We stand and Praise the One who is and was and is to come. We may not understand God’s timing or the suffering of one so dear or loss of babies, but we do know the One who does know. And we know His character. He is the One true God, worthy of praise and our obedience. He is Just in all He does, His ways are higher than our ways, his ways are right and true. When we join our loved ones in His heavenly domain, we will know fully, just as we are fully known. We look in a mirror darkly, but then we will see clearly in the Light of His Glory. May His light shine in those places that need supernatural comfort in the days ahead and give you the peace that transcends human understanding and keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
God bless each of you who mourn this beautiful woman, Robin. Your church family joins you in her loss and lifts you up in prayer.
God bless you and keep you in His peace.
Amen

Sunday morning I sit here with tears running down my face as I read of your (and our) loss, a 65 year old man who never knew you or your family personnally, but know you are doing God’s work. Losing your lovely daughter so young is almost too much to bear, and without God’s promise of eternal life through Jesus Christ – I think it would be. However, we who are saved by the blood of Jesus have a hope that no one else has, the hope and sureness of eternal life for all who accept Jesus as their Saviour. So why we hurt and cry it is only because we will miss our loved one’s smiles and laughter and the sunshine they bring to our lives. We don’t cry because we worry about where they are now or where they are going, only that they leave a void in our life until we meet them again. Thank you Jesus and Thank you Robin.

Dear James and Betty and Family, I pray in Jesus name Peace that surpasses all understanding and to hold you in His loving arms and to comfort your broken hearts. I never knew Robin, but know she is dancing in heaven with Jesus, happy, pain free and whole to live for all eternity !!! The devil will pay dearly for striking her and he knows it. I am believing like Robins husband that every life that satan tries to destroy and take out early, God will release his wrath upon the devil and he will pay dearly for what he has done. Remember…… God loves you all !!!

What A God we serve!! I have no idea how people live without Jesus!!! Thank you for sharing your Robin with all of us!!! She was a blessing!! All of your children have been a blessing to the world!!! Give Betty a hug from us all!! Pray for our 5 children that have turned away from our Lord, that one day they will come back to the Lord!!! Prayers for all of your family!!!

My heart breaks for you both I remember meeting sweet robin at the first bible conf.I attended 1n 1980 she must have been only 8 or 9 at this time I had my 11 yr old son with me who said she acts like she enjoys hearing all these preachers it inspired him to take another view at his approach to church and preachers, today he is a preacher himself..Pro.6:31 declares GOD’s system of divine justice requires a thief to pay back seven times what he stole I am asking GOD for a seven times greater anointing against cancer on your household to see others set free of this life robbing spirit.May the peace that passes understanding fill your household now in CHRIST NAME.

What a blessing James and his family have been to so many people in the world, including myself! I didn’t know Robin, but I saw her once when she was hosting Life Today and I could see the love of Jesus radiating from her face. My heart goes out to the entire family and I will keep them in my prayers. I look forward to meeting Robin when I join her in heaven one day, but right now I know she will be missed terribly and I pray that God will let all of us who love and appreciate the Robison family help bear this heavy burden.

God bless,

Dear James and Betty and family, We are so sorry to hear about your loss. My family and I moved to to Texas in August and we attend Gateway Church. Mark has attended two tapings at your studio. We lost my Dad on December 17th. He lost his battle with cancer that day. He was 64 years old. It looks like Heaven has had much gain these past few weeks, but we have had much heartache….. We pray peace and comfort to you all, especially the children.
Much love, Mark and Shelly Strauss and children.

Wow what a shock to read the above article. I have been unable to locate the book Indivisible in any of the stores that I have been to. I do not have a Christian book store close and am handicapped and not able to drive. After a long time of being off the computer and only watching Joyce’s show was unaware of the passing of James & Betty’s daughter, Robin. I have been watching Touched By An Angel and of course there is no news there. I decided to look for James’ book on his website. Instead of at first finding the book I found a shock instead. What also shocked me was to find that there were no “comments” to this article. I can’t believe the many friends of this family of God could not find the time or words to write a comment. I do not know them but did want to share a few thoughts with them.Death is final here on earth but we do have a hope of seeing our loved ones again in Heaven. As a mother I cannot comprehend how Betty must feel to lose a child that is a Mother too, one who is gifted and loved by so many and then James who has lost his little girl that he loved so much. But there is one thing that we can all look forward to having this daughter, wife, mother, etc.but most of all a child of God. greet each one of her loved ones as they enter the gates of heaven. I pray God will be with each one of her family. God bless you all.

Rick CrowsonJanuary 3, 2013 at 6:08 pmReply

Dear Bro. Robison. I am truly saddened by the passing of your daughter. We as parents never expect that one of our children will leave this earth to be with the Lord before us, but unfortunately it does happen. I am thankful that she had given her heart and her life to Jesus, and know that you will be reunited with her again some day. God bless you for your mininstry.

Maria VasquezJanuary 3, 2013 at 6:07 pmReply

Dear Rev James and Betty, my heart was deeply saddened by the news of your dear daughter. I have watched your TV show off and on for years and have truly admired you and have been ministered to by all you say and do. I pray for the that beautiful peace of God to strengthen you and sustain you at this time. She has graduated to the place we all long to be one day, and as you said…….she will be there greeting all of us believers one day as she joyously walks side by side with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Peace be to you and your family at this time.

James and Betty, our hearts are breaking for you, Ken and the rest of your dear family. When I first heard it I wanted to call you, but I’ve lost your #, as well as Betty’s. So Cindy and I did the best thing we could do: Pray for you in this time and thank our wonderful Jesus for the precious gift of Robin that we’ve loved since God gave you this delightful little girl. Having daughters her age, I can’t even imagine the pain this has caused, first in her cancer, then the triumph of her healing; then to learn that the malady was back and letting her go, even though knowing she’s with our Lord. Such roller coaster experiences can only be truly understood by you who are going through this AND the Holy Spirit who we pray will bring all His comfort and strength as you face the days ahead.
We love you all very much and thank our Lord for our friendship throughout all of Robin’s life here, until we join her brand new in her New Life and Home. Dennis & Cindy Baw

Bless your sweet hearts. I can’t imagine losing a child. I lost Mom 7 years ago, and I truly felt lost myself for 2 years. It took me 2 years to get through the grieving process. It is not an easy road, but the Lord Jesus will hold your hand and hearts all the way through it. Cry like a river if you like, it is part of the healing. Even those in leadership as yourself will need the love of those around you to help you also. I know you have many and their love poured out to you is the Lord loving you through them. I encourage you to take the time to work on this process. Let your regular work and responsibilites be done by others for a time. I also encourage you to check out a local “Grief Share” ministry, if you are not familiar with it. Attend the group sessions. It was and outlet for me. It will help you also. May the grace and mercy of the Lord cover you during this time.

Bro James and SIster Betty,

Thinking about you each day and hoping that the knowledge GOD placed in you giving assurance that one day we will all be able to meet in person your darling Robin YES in person and know her as a sister in Christ even though our path never crossed here. As my daddy at 89 went near the same time ……I am sure they will get a headstart on fellowshiping, There is no good thing to say that will help ease the physical pain of the tangible touch you miss from her here but GOD will find a way to help our families through this. He is faithful as you both are so know we love you here and care ,,,, Sincerely Dianne Timmy and Chory

Dear James and Betty,

My heart is broken for your family. I was so moved by Robin’s death, that I prayed throughout the night for you guys. As a fellow Christian, I rejoice with you that she is no longer suffering and is with our Lord and Savior, Jesus. I loved how she signed all her emails “I Win” and was initially heartbroken that she didn’t win over cancer, but while I was praying, the Lord revealed she won even in death because she is where we all attain to be, with Jesus. James, my admiration and respect for you and Betty is more than I can express in writing so please know that you all will be in my prayers because your burden is my burden.

Thank you for all you do for families and children around the world and for your deep and abiding love of America. I enjoy the privilege of being a partner with Life Outreach and reading all your books. In addition, I was able to attend your recent conference “Indivisible” and I love your passion for this country.

Although I don’t understand and grieve over Robin’s death, I trust the Lord because I’ve seen Him “make all things new and bring beauty from ashes”.

With much love and admiration,

Carol Prejean

I know that Robin has a lot of new brothers and sisters that she is meeting for the first time because of the thousands, that have given their lives to the Lord because of your ministry. You and Betty have personally been a blessing to me all these years. Thank you, In His Love!! xoxox

I send my love and sympathy to the family of Robin. May God comfort you and help you with the loss of her precious life.

Dear James & Betty,

We are simple with out words at hearing of your loss.
You both have ment so much to us and our walk with God.

Please know that you are in our prayers.

“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints”. My prayer is that the Robinson and extended family would know and discover the nature of God that they need at this time to make it through. None of us outside know the depth of the sorrow. Jesus — the man of sorrows, stay close to us all.

Oh, Betty & James – our hearts are breaking for you, Kenny, and their children (your grandchildren)…I know you know she is with Jesus…but I know how much you prayed for her healing and that you will miss her every day. We will be praying for you both and your family….We love you and we are so very sorry.

Dear James & Betty
Our hearts are sad as we received the news of Robin’s passing. Yes we can comfort ourselves in the wonderful assurance that she is in the presence of The Lord, but the loss and time until we all meet again is the difficult part. We pray that you will experience the calming love of Jesus in these days and pray that the seeds that she planted will now bring forth much fruit.
Love ……Bob & Carol Cave……Canada

Elaine KunkelJanuary 1, 2013 at 11:35 amReply

We never know what each of us are going through. I can not imagine what a loss this is for all of your family and your TV family. I lost my best friend of 56 years in August and my very best friend, my husband, on Oct. 26th. I will see both of them someday as they both loved and served the Lord all of their lives. We do have that hope.

You and your family will be in my prayers. God bless her children and husband.

We lost our son when he was 20. Hard? Yes! But a necessity when God wills it!

Dear James and Betty and family,

Gene and I send our condolences to you and your family. As believers, we understand the hope of life eternal. I know we will all be together with the believers that have went before us-but it is still a sad time here on the earth without each and everyone of them. You are a wonderful example of God’s love to his children and we thank you. You are in our hearts and prayers.

Dear James and Betty,

You and your family are in my prayers. I pray the peace that passes all understanding will be yours at this time.
You have such a love for people and have been a blessing to so many through the years.
I received Jesus Christ as my lord and Savior at a crusade you led at my high school over thirty years ago.
Thank You for obeying the call of God on your life.

In Christ’s Love, Anita

James & Betty,

Our family attends Gateway Church and I have seen you both in person at the Life Today studios. I have such love and respect for both of you because of how apparently the Holy Spirit flows through you both. I am so terribly saddened to hear about the passing of your precious daughter. Nothing could be more difficult than to bury a child. God understands; He has walked in your shoes.

Please know I am praying for you and Robin’s sweet family.
God Bless You All,

What a GREAT Hope we Have in our Lord Jesus! It is comforting to know that our loved ones are with the Lord, free from the pain, suffering, toils and cares of this life. Having experienced this type of loss, I can truly say that our hope in Jesus Christ is secure, especially when our loved ones are with Him. We can also rejoice in this hope and even in the midst of sorrow we have His peace and abiding joy which the world cannot give or take away. Given with the Love of Jesus

A wonderful tribute! It is bittersweet to celebrate a homegoing, while longing to make more wonderful memories with loved ones. You and Betty give so much, I pray for comfort, quietness, peace and joy. the physical body can sometimes hinder the spirit. I imagine your daughter no longer bond to her physical body being free to experience all He has promised.

Dearest James & Betty,

What a beautiful child of the King you were honored to share with us all. I am so sorry for your loss, but celebrate with you a precious life so wonderfully lived. To have reflected Christ as brightly as Robin did is a lasting legacy to our heavenly father, and to Robin’s beloved father and mother here on earth.
With deepest love & sympathy,

Dearest James and Betty,
Our family is saddened, and with broken hearts we pray for your comfort from the Lord, our God, who is the God of all comfort. He is the God of peace that passes understanding, full of mercy and grace, that IS sufficient; joy, unspeakable and full of glory. We grieve with you for the great loss of your beloved Robin.
We celebrate her life, filled with giving, loving and serving – God gave her the desires of her heart to be a wife and a mother…she fulfilled her calling with grace and great dignity.
She fought the good fight, finished the race and kept the faith. There is laid up for Robin the crown of righteousness which the righteous Judge will give to her on that Day!

I am so sorry for your loss. My sister went to be with Jesus right before Thanksgiving after years of illness. And while I am so grateful that she is no longer in pain, but walking with Him in health and wholeness, it does leave a hole in our hearts. We have just celebrated the birth of Jesus, who is our Prince of Peace – praying that His peace and comfort surround each one of you during this time.

My heart is broken for each of you. I, too, have lost a child, and parents, and others. Each time I thought life could not go on, but LIFE not only goes on, LIFE sustains, LIFE carries us when we can’t even seem to breathe for the grief. LIFE takes the seeming insurmountable tangle of darkness that wants to drain us of all life…L I F E takes everything meant for evil and TURNS IT to GOOD and to GOD’S GLORY…to our victory…Today, for you and for us all, I THANK YOU, GOD THE FATHER, JESUS THE ANOINTED ONE, PRESCIOUS AND MOST POWERFUL HOLY SPIRIT, for coonquering anda overcoming grief and every evil that exhaults itself over THE WORD OF G O D! All praise to YOU Lord GOD ALLmighty!!! We are strong because YOU are trustworthy…YOU will dry every tear. YOUR Strength in each of us prevails. We worship YOU – we thank YOU!
