Wednesday, February 22

They are all living to him.—Luke 20:38.


How does Jehovah feel about faithful men and women who have died? He longs to see them again! (Job 14:15) Can you imagine how much Jehovah misses his friend Abraham? (Jas. 2:23) Or Moses, with whom he spoke “face-to-face”? (Ex. 33:11) And how he must yearn to hear David and the other psalmists sing their beautiful songs of praise! (Ps. 104:33) Although these friends of God are sleeping in death, Jehovah has not forgotten them. (Isa. 49:15) He remembers every detail of their personality. One day, he will bring them back to life, and he will once again hear their earnest prayers and accept their worship. If you have lost a loved one in death, may these thoughts console and comfort you. When the rebellion began in Eden, Jehovah knew that conditions would get worse before they got better. Jehovah hates the wickedness, injustice, and violence in the world today. w21.07 10 ¶11; 12 ¶12

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

This beautiful text reminds me of the chorus of Song 151, which I cannot sing dry-eyed:

He will call; The dead will answer.

They will live at his command.

For he will have a longing

For the work of his own hand.

So have faith, and do not wonder,

For our God can make us stand.

And we will live forever,

As the work of his own hand.

Every time I well up as I think of my dad and mom and so many other dear faithful ones who rest in Jehovah’s memory. 

"Where the scriptures and and the slave are silent, I do not speak." :bible2:

        " Thankfully it's Sleep "
Since we do not have immortal souls, what happens when we die? We “sleep,” because due to Christ’s ransom sacrifice there is the hope of a resurrection. (1 Corinthians 15:22). We Sleep: Jn 11:14,  1 Cor:15:20), (1 Thes 4:14, etc, etc,etc.
