    Sorry for your loss, my prayers goes out for you in this time of grief. One thing gives my family comfort....the bible's hope of the resurrection.

    “There is going to be a resurrection.”—Acts 24:15

    God has resurrected humans in the past. -John 11:39-44.

    God is eager to do it again. Jehovah hates death; he views it as an enemy. (1 Corinthians 15:26)

    Can the Dead Really Live Again?
