To the family and friends,
I am very sorry to hear of the loss of your loved one.
When Jesus was on earth, he brought his friend Lazarus back to life, who was dead for four days! Before Jesus resurrected Lazarus he spoke to Martha, Lazarus' sister as recorded at John 11:21-27 :
" Martha then said to Jesus: 'Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. Yet even now I know that whatever you ask God for, God will give you.' Jesus said to her: 'Your brother will rise.' Martha said to him: 'I know he will rise in the resurrection on the last day.' Jesus said to her: 'I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life; and everyone who is living and exercises faith in me will never die at all. Do you believe this?' She said to him: 'Yes, Lord, I have believed that you are the Christ, the Son of God, the one coming into the world.' "
Yes, Jesus has the power from God to bring our loved ones back to life!
In the mean time we need comfort from God as it says in 2 Corinthians 1:3,4. If you would like free Bible studies to bring you comfort you can ask any one of Jehovah's Witnesses to make arrangements.
My deepest condolences to the family for your loss.Truly heartbreaking. Our Heavenly Father gives us a beautiful thought when He promises us that soon death will be "swallowed up forever." (1 Cor. 15:54) Along with this, God also guarantees that ones who have died will be able to live again. (John 5:28,29) I hope these encouraging scriptures can bring you some comfort during this difficult time. (Please visit JW.org for more info)
