    To family and friends my deepest sympathy for the loss of your loved one. Losing a loved one in death is very painful and Almighty God Jehovah (Psalms 83:18) knows the pain and hurt that you now have at this most difficult time. HE promises that those "powerless in death" will again (Isaiah 26:19). This is what the Bible calls the resurrection. Jesus performed many resurrections in the Bible. HE promises that there's going to be a resurrection of all those in the grave and they will hear his voice and come out. John 5:28,29, Acts 24:15 What a wonderful time that will be when we will see our loved ones again! To learn more about God's promises and the resurrection hope, please visit I hope you will find some comfort in the hope of the resurrection found in the scriptures.
