Reciban nuestras condolencias. En Revelación o Apocalipsis 21:4 dice que "Dios limpiara toda lágrima de los ojos y la muerte no será más, ni existirá ya mas lamento ni clamor ni dolor". Y en Hechos 24:15 dice que "va ha haber una resurrección". Jehova Dios muy pronto acabará con toda la maldad y el sufrimiento incluyendo las guerras, el odio, los desastres naturales y las enfermedades ya que por estas causas y muchas más morimos. Además nos dice que tiene el deseo de devolverles la vida a nuestros seres queridos que hayan muerto.
