no one will cause any harm, death, tears, pain and sorrow will be gone, no one will be sick, the deserts will blossom this is just some of the help I can't tell you All. (Matthew 6:9,10; Isaiah 11:9; Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:3-5; Isaiah 33:24; Isaiah 35:1) The God of comfort can give comfort to you and the family now if you pray to him his name is in old bibles. (2 Corinathians 1:3,4; Psalms 83:18) Since God is a God of love he didn't take the one so dear to you and the family to be with him the earth is for mankind.

Our deepest condolences to the family. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, words alone cannot ease the pain of our loss. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 147:3 reads He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. We can also find comfort from Jesus words at John 5:28-29 “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days ahead.

So sorry to hear about your loss. My deepest sympathy to you and your loved ones. Soon Jesus is going to solve all mankind's problems by means of Gods kingdom, the one we pray for: " Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven." Matthew 6:6-10; Rev 21:3-5; Daniel 2:44. The dead will come back to life here on Earth. Matthew 5:5; Act 24:15; Psalms 37: 11,29. God does not cause our death. Ecclesiastes 9:11. This kingdom will bring us, no more sickness, pain, death, wars, food shortages, and tears. Revelations 21:3-5; Psalms 46:8,9; Psalms 72:16. Please, look up the scriptures in your Bible, you will see, that this is all true. My email is : For any questions.
