To the Family of:

Ruth Duncan.

I’m truly sorry to read online about the loss of your dear loved one, Ruth…She will truly be missed…

Have you ever wondered will you see your loved one again? The resurrection performed by Jesus offered clear proof that God gave Jesus power over death. In fact, the Bible says that Jesus now possesses “the keys of death.”
( Revelation 1:18). So Jesus will unlock the gates of the grave, just as he ordered that the stone of Lazarus’ tomb be rolled away. (John 11:39). Also, last but not least, Remember Jesus Christ himself was resurrected back to the heavenly realm by his heavenly Father, Jehovah God. (Acts 2:32); 1 Peter 3:18). “However, Jesus said that he has sheep not of this fold called the other sheep (John 10:16) Billions will be brought back to life on a restored paradise earth where righteousness will prevail. God did not simply make this earth to be misused forever nor did he make it for nothing. see (Isaiah 45:18). He created it to be inhabited according to his will not man’s. Matthew 6: 9, 10.
