Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
I just read about the recent death of Mr. George and I know the Onacilla family and loved ones have saddened hearts today. So I wanted to share beautiful scripture where our heavenly Father, Jehovah God (Psalm 83:18), promises us that he is going to do away with man's greatest enemy, death. Rev. 21: 4; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. Isaiah 33:24 guarantees us: "And no resident will say "I am sick," ever again. God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises, including the resurrection. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25) I pray it will bring you comfort to please watch this short, faith strengthening video: "Can The Dead Really Live Again?" https://vimeo.com/232445509 You are in my prayers.
