I just read about the recent death ofRichard, way too soon,and I knowthe Perryfamily and loved ones have saddened hearts today. So I wanted to share beautiful scripture where our loving heavenly Father, Jehovah God (Psalm 83:18), promises us that he is going to do away with mans greatest enemy, death. Rev. 21: 4; And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: And no resident will say I am sick, ever again. Gods kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises, including the resurrection. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25, Acts 24:15, Job 14:14-15) Isaiah 26:19 Your dead will liveAnd the earth will let those powerless in death come to life. Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it. For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt. It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. John 17:3 Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7, Psalm 34:18 I pray you will find comfort reading the above scriptures in your personal Bible and to please watch this beautiful video (Song 144) entitled Keep Your Eyes on the Prize https://tv.jw.org/#en/video/VODChildren/pub-pksn_24_VIDEO If you had the opportunity to see your dead loved ones again, alive and in perfect health here on earth, would you take it?
