Reciban nuestras condolencias. En ISaias 33:24 dice que llegara el día que nadie dirá "estoy enfermo". En Revelacion o Apocalipsis 21:4 dice que "Dios limpiara toda lágrima de los ojos y la muerte no será más". Entonces vemos que nuestro creador Jehova Dios tiene el poder de eliminar toda maldad y sufrimiento. Y en Hechos 24:15 dice que "va ha haber una resurreccion". Entonces nos dice además que tiene el deseo de devolverles la vida a nuestros seres queridos que hayan muerto.
