One thing sadly is common to us all is the pain of losing our loved ones in death. There are many causes, old, illness, accident, acts of violence and disaster. In the present time so many of all ages and at a surprising speed have lost their lives in the Coronavirus pandemic, always leaving an immense void in the surviving family and community.
Will we ever see our loved ones again? Perhaps in heaven as many are taught?
What the Bible Teaches
The Bible teaches a different hope, looking directly at the benefits of God’s Kingdom it clearly states that individuals are to be reunited with their loved ones here on Earth. In peaceful conditions where righteousness and perfect health are normal.
Why can you believe this? When on Earth Jesus is recorded as raising the dead, and he made the promise in John 5: 28,29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” (NWT)
Just before his death Jesus raised his friend Lazarus (the account is in John 11: 38 – 43). The account demonstrates that Jesus reflects his fathers desire to restore life to those who have died. Note the beautiful words from Job 14: 14-15 “If a man dies, can he live again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory service Until my relief comes. 15 You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands.”
God – Jehovah – will call and the dead will rise. This yearning demotes Jehovah’s earnest desire and longing to resurrect dead humans.
Jehovah God promises this is to be fulfilled by means of his Heavenly Kingdom Government, bringing rich blessings to the human family here on earth. Life will be exactly as it was meant to be, everlasting, in paradise without sickness, injustice, pain of losing loved ones in death and you have the opportunity to find out more about the bible promises please follow the Link to JW.org
