“He will swallow up death forever.
The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; He will remove His people’s disgrace from all the earth.The Lord has spoken.”
The Gospel of Jesus Christ gives hope! Death will no longer be a terror for humanity. By His death Jesus Christ swallowed up death in victory. When He returns He will make it disappear. He will abolish it to the extent that there will be no longer any trace of it!
Friends death still inflicts pain upon us and our world; nevertheless, we will not have to fight death forever. Moreover, if we are in Christ, we need not fear death should we die before Christ returns. In Him we are alive and will have victory over death and its effects.
Are you grieving? We encourage you to cling to the Lord and He will comfort you through the process of grieving and, in the future, will replace your sorrow with great, unending joy!
Heavenly Father be with those who are grieving. Comfort them during this difficult time. Allow them to feel Your presence. In Jesus’ name I pray..AMEN
