  • To the Moore Family:
    We take this time to express our personal condolences to the family of Bruce Moore. Our deepest thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family, and friends of the family during this time of great sadness. Indeed, this is a time when strong words of love and support will be greatly needed by all. May we always remember that God will certainly be there for us. As the scriptures reveal, our God is a God of tender mercy and comfort. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4) God’s true comfort can be found right in the pages of the Bible. In the Bible, God tells us that we can look forward to the time period when the reporting of anyone dying will be a thing of the past. (Revelation 21:3-4) Our Creator will swallow up death forever. But the following remark from the scriptures provides even greater comfort to our grieving hearts. At John 5:28-29, God tells us about a time period when He would cause a calling to go forth to those in the grave to stand up in life again. Did you know that from this one text alone, that God is giving us His personal guarantee that the restoring of life would take place. With God this future arrangement is possible because God is the source of life for all living things. Even if a person dies, God has the power and the desire to restore life back to those who has fallen asleep in death. So assist those who have loss someone in death, God has taken the time to preserve nine accounts in the Bible that speaks about this grand blessing soon take place earth wide. Here is just one such example that is recorded at John 11:32-44. I hope that all will get a chance to see how these verses apply to their loved ones in a very special way. The restoring of life by God will surely take place. So, in closing we encourage all to please keep this promise of God near your hearts at all times. Remember that when God makes a promise, it becomes reality. For it is impossible for God to lie. (Titus 1:2)
