Dear Family of Late Mr. Borm: I am leaving this letter with a message I hope will encourage you. I became aware of your loss of a loved one, that was published in the recent obituary. Many people wonder what is a natural reaction to the death of a loved one? What promise regarding the dead did Jesus give? John 5:28,29 says, â€œDo not marvel at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out.â€ Jesus promised that millions now dead will live again on this earth and have the prospect of remaining on it forever under a peaceful paradisaic conditions. Psalms 37:29, says, â€œThe righteous themselves will possess the earth and they will reside forever upon it.â€ Also at Matthews 5:5 Jesus said, â€œHappy are the mild tempered ones since they will inherit the earth.â€ Since Jesus made the promise, it is safe to assume that he is willing to fulfill it. But is he able to do so? Less than two years after making that promise Jesus demonstrated in a powerful way that he is both willing and able to perform the resurrection. You can read this account about Lazarus, Jesus friend at John the eleventh chapter. Jesus plainly told Martha, Lazarus sister that, â€œI am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.â€ What does this means for you? You have the prospect of being reunited with your dead loved one right here on earth under very different conditions. Jehovah God, who started mankind off in a lovely garden has promised to restore a Paradise on this earth under the rule of His heavenly Kingdom in the hands of the now glorified Jesus Christ. In that restored Paradise, the human family will have the prospect of enjoying life without end, free from all sickness and disease. If your heart yearns to see your loved one again, Jehovah Witnesses will gladly assist you to learn how you can make this sure hope your very own. Why not contact them at a Kingdom Hall near you.
