    My sincerest condolences to the Mosley’s Family for the loss of your dear loved one. This type of loss is always very difficult, but God’s word offers the grand hope of a resurrection to life again. Jesus Christ said, “Do not be amazed at this because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” God’s word extends to all the wonderful promise of a resurrection to a better life!

    May the words of the Bible give you an added reason to know that God does love you all and will, as it has already been mentioned that Jesus Christ will resurrect your dear loved one back to good health,as the Bible says in Isaiah 33:24 but then after John is brought back, he will be a part of an even bigher Guarrantee and that is found in Psalm 37:29 which reads: The righteous will possess the earth and they will live forever on it. So you see, all of those who have died will be able to live once again, but among those who also has been brought back from the grave, to be able to live forever on this earth, but with no more Death in view, because God will take death away, as it says in 1 Cor. 15:26 and the last enemy, death will be brought to nothing. So may these words bring some real comfort into he days ahead.
