  • To the Hemphill Family:
    We take this time to express our personal condolences to the family of Lois Hemphill. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family and friends during this hour of great sadness. May all grieving hearts please take to heart this wonderful promise that God reveals to us about the resurrection blessing that is ever so near at hand. This comforting promise is recorded at John 5:28-29. In the verses, God tells us that soon He would call to those in the graves to stand up in life again. From the reading of these verses, did you know that God is giving us his personal promise that our departed loved ones would have the hope of living again. Yes, God would call, and our departed loved ones would respond by standing up in life again. This future arrangement is made possible because God gave His Son as a ransom to repurchase us back from sin and death. (John 3:16) Then to help all to develop strong faith in this future blessing, God has taken the time to preserve nine accounts in the Bible that speaks about this grand blessing that is near at hand. Here is. Just one such example that is recorded at Acts 9:36-42. I hope that all will get a chance to see how these verses apply to Lois , and to many others in a very special way. 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)
