The Bible refersВ В 9 times death to sleep .Soon Jesus will awaken our beloved ones by means of the resurrection.John 5:28,29.
I want to offer my condolences to the Cockefair family and friends. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death. Even Jesus gave way to tears when his friend Lazarus died (John 11:35). Our heavenly Father of tender mercies knows your pain. He never purposed his human family to have health issues, grow old, and die, but to live in perfect health and life forever. It is still his purpose (Psalms 37:11, 29). He calls death an enemy and promised to remove sickness, old age, and death__ 1 Corinthians 15:26 вЂњThe last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing"; Isaiah 33:24 And no resident will say: "I am sick"; Isaiah 35:5,6; Job 33:24,25 вЂњLet his flesh become fresher than in youth; Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor.вЂќ Finally, He promised to undo the effect of death by bringing our love ones in the memorial tombs back to life__ Isaiah 26:19 "Your dead will rise...Awake and shout joyfully you residents in the dust! ...the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.вЂќ I hope these words give you all comfort.
(2 Corinthians 1:3,4) May you find comfort in the hope in the ScripturesВ
