  • I just heard the news on silverbird FM.
    It is a sad thing losing a husband, father, boss, relative, colleague. So many people are mourning. It’s OK to mourn, weep, or even fast. But all hope is not lost. Our Creator has assured us that he will resurrect the dead. So all those who are mourning can see their dead loved one again. This is not just mere wish. It’s established fact from the Bible. 9 resurrections were recorded in it. Men, women, children, friends and nonfriends of God were resurrected. One was even died for 4 day before he was resurrected. At your convenient time read John 5:28, 29; Acts 24:15 to read for yourselves these asdurances.
