  • To the Bryant Family
    We are truly sadden to hear about the passing of your love one Carolyn A Bryant. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends during this time of great sadness. Yes for a moment we will have to deal with a heavy hearts. Indeed we have lost another But we can draw even further comfort by giving attention to these two wonderful promises from God. These two promises will have a profound impact on the future hope of those who have died. Yes God has made a loving provision for our love ones to live again. To the Bryant family is sharing this promise with you, and pother family members who has died. Here is the first of the promises. First God tells us about a time period when He will rid the earth of all sicknesses and death. (Revelation 21:3-4) Just imagine living during a time when no person will ever get sick, grow old and die. Does this sound familiar? Yes God is restoring life back to His original purpose from the very beginning . Why even the aging of our bodies will be reversed so that we become young again. (Job 33:25) Yes these are truly comforting words to hear and read about. However there is another promise that we need to know about. This promise will certainly touch the hearts of all grieving over the lost of a love one or friend. This promise states that God will soon call to those in the grave, and that our love one will hear His voice and stand up in life again. ( John 5:28-29 and Acts 24:15) God wants all to see the clear meaning of this promise. From this promise, God is giving us His personal guarantee that Carolyn, and billions of others will have their lives restored back to them. That those who have died will be reunited back with their many family members and friends. Does this promise not touch your heart? Can we envision ourselves being back together with so many family members and friends who have died? If we find it difficult to see how this promise will take place, God understand our thinking. After all we have been seeing our love ones die right before our very eyes. So to help all to develop strong faith in this future blessing, God has preserved nine accounts in the Bible that speaks about this wonderful blessing from God. Here is just one such example that is recorded at Acts 9:36-42. May I take this time to encourage all to see how these verses apply to Carolyn, and to many others who await this future resurrection from God. We know that on this day your eyes are filled with many tears. Again you have lost many family and friends. So the shedding of tears on this day is okay. The tears are a reminder to all that death has robbed us of those whom we love. However in the future days to come, God has given us His promise that life will be restored. During that time, any tears that are shed will be of joy and laughter. What has cause such a change in our emotional behavior? It is because of the promise resurrection from God finally taking place. So may all please keep this promise from God near your hearts at all times. Remember that when God gives a promise, it always becomes reality. For it is impossible for God to lie. ( Titus 1:2)
