My sincere sympathy to the family in the loss of your dear family member. The death of a loved one is so very difficult to accept because death was not a part of God's original purpose for mankind (Genesis 1:28). That is why the Bible at 1 Cor. 15:26 state; And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing. God promises a time when “he will actually swallow up death forever.” (Isaiah 25:8) To remove death, he must eliminate its root cause, which is sin. God will do this through Jesus Christ, who “takes away the sin of the world.”(John 1:29) Jesus said at John 11:25; “I am the resurrection and the life.” Meaning he has the authority from God (Jehovah) to resurrect those who have fallen asleep in death back to life with perfect health on a paradise earth in the very near future. Imagine living at a time when sickness, death and all the problems we face now will be gone forever!! And how wonderful it will feel to be reunited with your loved ones that have been sleeping in death!
