Even though this loss my at times seem to be unbearable the Bible gives us hope &comfort during this time of such sorrow 20 How comforting it is to know that Jehovah, the God of all comfort, will eliminate all grief and provide permanent consolation when “all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Christ’s] voice and come out”!

    Our sincere condolences to you on the loss of your loved one. Words cannot express the sorrow you’re feeling at this time. Or the pain your heart still feel as the years have passed since your loved one has died. I too have lost loved ones and this promise found in God’s Word that in the near future, death along with the pain and sorrow will soon be gone in the near future has brought me comfort. I hope this will bring you a measure of comfort too. Isaiah 25:8 - He (God)will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah (God’s name)will wipe away the tears from all faces. http://www.jw.org/en/publications/books/dead-live-again-tract/dead-live-again/

    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 the people in the tombs are in gods memory.

    To The Family, You have my deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear beloved family member. Jehovah knew that death would cause much suffering, therefore he provided a ransom in Jesus so that we may have an opportunity to live in the future without the threat of dying. Jesus said, "I am the resurrection and the life," at John 11:25. He will resurrect obedient mankind to a beautiful paradise home. Take comfort in this guarantee.
