Unfortunately, We are all prisoners of death, there is no escape from it. But we do have a hope to hold onto from God's word the Bible at:(Isaiah 26:19)"Your dead will live. My corpses will rise up. Awake and shout joyfully, You residents in the dust! For your dew is as the dew of the earth. And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life." This loving prophecy tells us that one day we will see our loved ones brought back to life right before our very eyes! Amazing Right. So what can you do to see this fulfilled? The answer is to seek Jehovah God and you will see his promises unfold....
