In light of all of the senseless crime, violence, and horrific tradegies - one has to question - where is this all going and what hope do we have for the love ones that we lost?.
There is such a wonderful future prospect for those of us who search out the scriptures and take delight in the words expresses in the Bible in respects to God promise about death. We can find such loving expressions at Revelation 21:3,4:- With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
Our love ones are not suffering at the hands of someone evil but is as if in a deep sleep according to the Bible - Eccl. 9:5-"For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten."
There is no suffering for our love ones - there is no endless floating into "nothingness" - they are as stated by the
Bible - conscious of nothing at all. So those words brings such comfort when we reflect on those that we love and long to see again.
