    We are so sorry for your loss. The bible tells us however there will be a time when mourning, pain, and death will be a thing of the past. May Mr. Brooks rest in peace

    Hello, the reason why I'm writing this message is because we are talking to people about what the Bible says, and telling them that there is a hope for people that have pasted away. The Bible says in John 5:28,29 "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” As you can see in this text it's says that the people in the tombs are in gods memory.

    To the family and friends of the deceased, Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. Many have found true comfort from the pages of God's word the Bible (2 Corinthians 1:3-5}. The Bible tells us why we die (Genesis 2:16, 17; Romans 5:12) the condition of the dead (Ecclesiastes 9:5) and that we can be reunited with our loved ones (Acts 24:15). The Bible also tells us where this happy event will take place (Psalm 37:29; 115:16). The promise from the God of the Bible Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) found at Revelation 21:3, 4 gives us the assurance that death will be no more. At John 17:3 Jesus tells us the benefit of reading and studying the Bible. He also said at John 8:32 “and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free". Please visit to learn what the Bible really teaches.
