Message to anyone who lost a relative
Today, you're sad and feeling strong and painful feeling of the loss of a very dear person. Unfortunately, life is like that. One day we lost the other day gain.
Today you feel lost. Someone you really loved is no longer at his side, but you should not be sad, do not give in to depression, because you do not actually lose you will only be away for a longer time than usual. It is as if the person you love so much made a very long journey. And indeed it is anyway.
Know that those who departed this life, are now sleeping. You may wonder: Sleeping! What do you mean? The Lord Jesus taught us:
And having thus spoken, he added, Lazarus, our friend, sleeps, but I awake him out of sleep.
The Lord Jesus showed us what happens when someone of this world. The person sleeps the sleep of death. To our mind, death is but a rest. It is a transitional time for us seems to take forever, but in the spiritual world is not so. Our life before God is only a breath or a simple steam that rises and then dissipates into the air:
3 You turn man to dust, and sayest, Return, ye children of men!
4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
5 Thou away as with a flood; They are as a sleep; in the morning they are like grass growing;
6 in the morning grows and flourishes; afternoon is cut and dry.
Ps 90: 3 to 6
Man is like a breath; their days are like a passing shadow. – Psalm 144: 4
However, you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? Even a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes. – James 4:14
There is another word of God also teaches us about this unknown and mysterious stage of our lives:
The dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in anything that is done under the sun. Ecc 9: 5 to 6
Let us rejoice! Our dear departed this life no longer suffer more. They have no despair, no longer afraid and rest in the arms of the Lord Jesus Christ and the great moment of our existence they there will be to resurrect to eternal life because of back Glorious our Lord Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul taught us:
Your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. – Colossians 3: 3-4
Therefore the Lord Jesus Christ told us:
Do not be troubled your heart; believe in God, believe also in me.

In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you; I go to prepare a place for you. – John 14: 2
Dear! We should not be saddened by the death of someone much loved, because these people are not suffering much less are sad. Certainly they are much better than we were no longer living in this world of sin and are already prepared to meet with the Lord of glory which in its turn will lead all her children to New Jerusalem the Eternal City in which there is no pain, suffering, death, lie, sin and disease. In the Eternal City is not even in our beloved sun, for the glory of our God who warms us and who enlightens us. It is not that wonderful. It is there that our loved ones will be. We soon we will meet again. So we should not be sad why our loved ones were in front of us. Certainly, when the Lord Jesus take us beyond them there will be for us to receive with open arms. We embrace and happiness back in extraordinary ways to flood our hearts Amen!
He will wipe every tear from their eyes; and there will be no more death, neither shall there be mourning nor crying, nor pain; for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. He added, Write: for these words are trustworthy and true. He told me, It is done: I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. Who is thirsty I will give to drink from the fountain of life. He who overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God and he shall be my son. – Revelation 21: 4-7
I leave you peace, my peace I give you; I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not be troubled heart, do not be afraid. – John 14:27
