Reciban nuestras condolencias. El perder a un ser querido en la muerte es muy doloroso por eso queremos compartir con ustedes el consuelo que Dios nos da mediante las escrituras. Por ejemplo en Revelación o apocalipsis 21:4 dice que "Dios limpiara toda lágrima de los ojos y la muerte no sera mas". Y en Hechos 24:15 dice que "va ha haber una resurrección". Entonces tenemos la seguridad de que nuestro creador Jehova Dios acabará con toda la maldad y el sufrimiento incluyendo las enfermedades y la muerte. Además nos dice que tiene el deseo de devolverles la vida de nuestros seres queridos que hayan muerto.
