There are few experiences more difficult than losing a loved one in death; no doubt Mr. Garcia will be sadly missed by all who knew him. I find comfort in knowing the restoration of life is guaranteed. Jesus spoke of the coming resurrection (John 5:21, 28, 29), was himself resurrected by his Father and he performed many miracles. All such miraculous events, including resurrections, took place on earth giving us a precious glimpse of what is to come.......seeing our loved ones again! (Acts 24:15)
Knowing death was not God’s purpose for mankind and his purpose has not changed provides comfort as well. His word is clear, “He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces”. (Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4)
As we await the fulfillment of his promises, may Jehovah God continue to bless your family in the days to come......
