Please accept our sincere condolences on the loss of your dear loved one. May you find comfort and hope in the Bible’s promise, “Your dead ones will live. . . . They will rise up.” –Isaiah 26:19 The Bible teaches that man was not created by God to die, but death came about as a result of sin, way back in the Garden of Eden. –Romans 5:12. So even though death has afflicted mankind down to our day, God promises to undo the effects of death and even do away with death itself. Please read this for yourself at Revelation 21:3, 4. What a wonderful hope is presented in God’s Word. . . being able to live right here on earth in paradisaic conditions with our loved ones beside us. –Psalms 37:29 It is our hope that reading these scriptures will comfort you during this time of loss.
