Dear Family of:
Mr. Michael Scannell.
Extending sincere condolences to each of you. Although not acquainted. We share the burden and the pain of losing a dear loved one.
The Inspired word of God promises that the dead will arise. The Angel told righteous Daniel that he would rise up “at the end of the days. (Daniel 12:13) Martha likewise believed that her brother, Lazarus, would “rise in the resurrection on the last day.”- (John 11:24). The Bible connects the “last day” with Christ’s Kingdom rule. (1 Corinthians 15:25, 26) “For he [Christ] must rule as king until God has put all enemies under his feet. And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing.” This is a powerful reason why we should pray for God’s Kingdom to come and For God’s will to be done on earth. (Matthew 6: 9, 10).
