To the White Family:
On behalf of my family, we take this time to express our personal condolences to the family of JoAnn F White. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family during this hour of sadness. May all please draw comfort from this promise from God where He assures all grieving hearts that our love ones will stand up in life again. This promise is recorded at John 5:28-29. I personally like the wording of this text. it states, these following words: Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tomb(grave will hear His voice and come out of them. Yes God goes on record or give us His personal guarantee that the resurrection to life will take place for our departed love ones. Only God, who is the source of life for all creative things can make such a promise, and then to carry that promise out to its very end.(Psalm 36:9) So the human family have much to look forward to. For a brief moment our eyes are filled with many tears. Remember that not one of those tears that have fallen from your eyes have been forgotten by God.(Psalm 56:6) Yes God remembers all things that had caused us pain, and had promised to remove them away from the human family. ( Revelation 21:3-4) So use this time to learn all that you can about the resurrection blessing from God. Life indeed will be restored. Remember that when God makes a promise, it becomes reality. For God does not lie. ( Titus 1:2)
