Dear Kuzma Family,

I know grief. Lost my dad in April. Asked God lots of questions and did endless mediation. But on dwelling on Hosea 13:14 which speaks of “the abolition of death and the rendering powerless of Sheol or grave,” I realized that if the resurrection of the dead had occurred in the past Luke 7:11-15; 8: 49-56; John 11: 38-44 then resurrection of our dead loved ones in the future will pose no insurmountable problem to Jehovah God. Little wonder 1 Thessalonians 4:13,14 summarizes it all: “…we do not want to be ignorant concerning those who are sleeping in death, that you may not sorrow as the rest do who have no hope. For our faith is that Jesus died and rose again, so, too, those who have fallen asleep in death through Jesus God will bring with him.”

Let me know if you need Bible Study aids that offer lasting solace in times of need. I will mail them to you at no charge.

Hang in there. We all are.

Best wishes,
