Wise Libary 1985/Margaret W.Lavigne
“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away”(Revelation 21:4 ESV).
Bible Study｜How does the Bible Interpret Death?
It is assured that whoever lives according to God’s will earns eternal life. For those who perform well in accordance with God’s will, “He does not come into judgment but has passed from death to life” (John 5:24). Thus, do not grieve for the loss of your beloved ones because they might come to live with God in the haven shortly after their death. I would say, those who die early are the ones who graduate earlier from the life course. Death is painful for human beings. But for God, the dead are just “asleep” that“God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep” (1 Thessalonians 4:13).
As to those who suffer, God “brought them out of the darkness and the shadow of death” (Psalm 107:13-14). According to the Bible, “the living know that they will die, but the dead know nothing…for the memory of them is forgotten” (Ecclesiastes 9:5). Thus, “do not lean on your own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5-6, James 1:17).
How lucky we are to have someone wonderful that makes separation so hard. Sorrow is the evidence of deep love. Do not cry much, because the one who truly loves you can’t bear see you suffering for his/her leaving. What we once enjoyed and deeply loved becomes part of our history in life.
The funeral allows people to honour someone they love in a special way and people gather together to give mental support to one another. Funeral encourages mourners to accept the harsh reality and express their pain and mourning. More Info: The 6 Purposes of a Funeral
Life is not all roses. Separation is evitable. Life comes to end for sure. I would say, illness is meant for us to adjust our life more properly and more wisely. Illness can be a kind reminder from God. Life is rife with variables. Death is my eyes is more like graduation from the life journey in which is never easy and smooth. According to the Bible, death occurs when God takes aways those who fell asleep. According to the Bible, those who do well in this life will enjoy a golden life, namely eternal life in heaven. If who you love is a great person, be happy with his/her graduation.
When you miss them, just look at the stars. They are one of the stars shining down upon us.
Having someone in your life means that you have a relationship with sb, especially a love relationship.
A funeral is a time for people to miss someone, to memorize someone and to think of someone. A funeral is a time for people to reflect on the meaning of life and the purposes of life. Some inspirational funeral and memorial quotes might be helpful for you to write a eulogy or epitaph.
The dead won’t be truly dead when they live in the hearts of those who miss them on a daily basis. You can never touch/him again. You can’t talk to him/her again. But you can own the memories like forever and no one can steal them from you. The memories are part of life.
