To the Hughes Family:
We take this time to express our personal condolences to the family of Howard L Hughes. Our deepest thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family and friends during this hour of great sadness. To all grieving hearts we say please draw tender mercy and comfort from this loving promise from God where He tells us about the resurrection blessing that He would extend to our departed loved ones. This promise is recorded at John 5:28-29. As the text states, God would cause a calling to go forth to those in the grave to stand up in life again. Yes, from this text, God is giving us His personal guarantee that we will witness with our own eyes seeing persons like Howard, and many others standing up in life again. This is part of the good news that God is having preached around the world today.(Matthew 24:14) And to assist others to develop strong faith in this wonderful arrangement, God has preserved nine accounts in the Bible that speaks about the resurrection blessing that is near at hand. 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 Howard, and to many others in a very special way. 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)
