sleep in heavenly peace........
I cannot express into words what I am feeling right now. I have been away for awhile and I just read this thread though in its entirety. My heart is torn between grief that she leaves her loved ones and joy that she is with her Lord and Savior.
Whats more is that I live two miles from where she is laid to rest and I missed her funeral by 4 days..
I would have wished to be there. I considered her a good friend.
My prayers are with your family Randy.
It is astounding how much Deb touched my heart. I have traveled the world all my life and met thousands of people, most of whom I have forgotten and would never think of again. Yet at times, whether doing my housework or writing on my computer or shopping for groceries I suddenly think of her and smile, but I only knew her for a short time through this forum. She is a very special lady and I miss her so much.
and it is good to know that she is also in the memory of the most high Jehovah
Jehovah God, who is perfect in memory, has no problem remembering the life patterns of those who have died. (Isaiah 40:26)
Since he is the Originator of life, Jehovah can readily bring back to life the same person in a newly formed body. (Psalm 36:9)
Moreover, the Bible states that Jehovah God has "a yearning"—an earnest longing and desire—to resurrect the dead. (Job 14:14, 15)
How glad we can be that not only is Jehovah able to bring a person back to life but he also wants to do it!
And yes it will be into a paradise earth ,
but that is for a future time ,so for now many who have died are waiting as if in a sleep to be resurrected by Jesus .
Jehovah has the memory and the power to resurrect
"The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear [Jesus’] voice and come out," said Jesus. (John 5:28, 29)
According to this promise, those in the memorial tombs—those who are in Jehovah’s memory—will be resurrected.
According to the Scriptures, the vast majority of the dead will be brought back to life on earth
Just think of the happy prospect that the promise of the resurrection opens up for those who have lost a loved one in death!
When Jesus resurrected the only son of the widow of Nain, what joy she must have experienced! (Luke 7:11-17)
And concerning the parents of a 12-year-old girl whom Jesus brought back to life, the Bible says: "At once they were beside themselves with great ecstasy." (Mark 5:21-24, 35-42; Luke 8:40-42, 49-56)
In God’s promised new world, it will be a delight to welcome back loved ones.
Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice
john 5;28 NIV
bible promises are very good Do not marvel at the wonderful promises in the bible ,they are very good and it gives us hope
