Sentimos muchísimo la pérdida de su ser querido por eso queremos compartir con ustedes el consuelo que Dios nos da mediante las escrituras. Por ejemplo Dios nos promete eliminar la muerte, en Revelación o Apocalipsis 21:4 dice que “Dios limpiara toda lagrima de los ojos y la muerte no será más, ni existira ya mas lamento ni clamor ni dolor”. Todas las razones por las que sufrimos hoy en día serán cosa del pasado por dejara de existir, las enfermedades ya no serán y la muerte también dejará de existir. En Hechos 24:15 habla de “una resurrección”. Jehova Dios muy pronto acabara con toda la maldad, ademas nos dice que tiene el deseo de devolverles la vida a nuestros seres queridos que hayan muerto.
