Condolence Messages

  1. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It was not God’s plan for us to die. God has promised to eliminate death, Revelations chapter 21 verses 3 and 4. Very soon we can welcome back our loved ones in the resurrection that Jesus spoke of in John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29. And to live on a paradise earth forever with our loved ones. Psalms 37 verse 29. I hope these scriptures bring you hope, encouragement and comfort.
