  • To the Vernon Family
    With heavy hearts we take this time to express our personal condolences to the Vernon Family. We are truly sorry to hear about the passing of Jessie James Vernon. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends. May everyone please draw comfort from this wonderful promise from God. The promise is recorded in the sacred writings so that all may read it personal. There God tells us that He would use His great powers and call to those in the grave, and that our love ones would hear his voice, and stand up in life again. ( John 5:28-29) Yes what a wonderful promise this truly is. The promise clearly shows that God loves His earthly family, and has put into motion a purpose that would lead to restoring the lives of those who have died. Would you not agree that these are truly comforting words to hear. We would expect no less from the God of all tender mercy and comfort. ( 2 Corinthians 1:3-4) Then to aide all to see the truthfulness of this promise, God has preserved nine wonderful accounts that speaks about the future resurrection blessing . Here is just one such example that all can receive comfort from. It is recorded at John 11:32-44. I hope that all may get a chance to see how these verses apply to Jessie, and to the billions of others who have fallen asleep in death. The resurrection is a sure arrangement. Like all of the many of others promise that God has made during times of long ago, no one of those promises has failed. ( Joshua 23:14) Yes the resurrection to life will not fail either. So please remember that we have God’s personal promise. When God makes a promise, it always becomes reality. For it is impossible for God to lie. ( Titus 1:2)
