    My sincere condolences to your family. I just wanted to share with you the Bible’s promise of the resurrection .

    Jesus said at John 11:25, ‘I am the resurrection and the life’. Jehovah has granted his son Jesus Christ the power not only to resurrect the dead but also to impart eternal life.

    At Revalation 1:18, Jesus calls himself “the living one,” who has “the keys of death and of the Grave.” Jesus is our hope for the living and the dead. He promised to open up the tombs and give the dead life, either in the heavens as his ‘Corulers’ or ‘Everlasting Life’ on earth ruled by his heavenly government.—Joh 5:28, 29; 2Pe 3:13.

    So when your love one return to life, on this earth would you like to welcome them back. This promise is a gift made for all to read in your copy of the Bible at John 3:16 and Romans 6:23.
