I am sorry to read of the passing of your love one; please accept my sincere condolences.I pray you will find comfort in Jesus' words:"Do not marvel at this, the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come."(John 5:28,29) Just imagine your joy when Jesus call him from the grave, during the resurrection when he will raise all those who are sleeping in death; restoring them back to life, with the prospect of eternal life on the paradise earth.-Acts 24:15; John 11:11-44; Luke 23:43. Until that blessing take place, may your family find peace and comfort in God's love.-I John 4:8.
I was saddened to hear that Arnim had passed away, but what helped bring comfort was to find that the Bible speaks of a time when death will be done away with:
Isa. 25:8, 9: “He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. . . . And in that day one will certainly say: ‘Look! This is our God. We have hoped in him, and he will save us. This is Jehovah. We have hoped in him. Let us be joyful and rejoice in the salvation by him.’”
Also at John 5:28, 29: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.”
I know you will still experience pain, grief, and sorrow but I hope that these scriptures will bring some measure of comfort to you.
