Celebrating the life of Joe Hill Pierce
Thank you for signing Joe Hill Pierce's Guestbook
I'm so sorry for your loss.. I'd like to share some real hope with you.. In Psalms 146:4 tells the condition of the dead. "His breath goeth forth, he returneth to the earth and that very day his thoughts perish." In Acts 24:15 the bible promises a resurrection of our loved ones back to earth. When Jesus resurrected Lazarus from the dead, he brought him back to earth. He's going to do that on a much larger scale in the future. In Psalms 37:11+29 says man will live forever on the earth in peace. That was God's original purpose, for Adam and Eve to live forever in the garden of eden. God's purpose hasn't changed. In Isaiah 45:18 says God created the earth to be inhabited. That's why he gave his son to die for us, John 3:16, so we could have everlasting life. In Revelation 21:4 says there'll be no more pain or death. Since there is no pain or death in heaven, those are future conditions on earth under God's kingdom arrangement. JW.org

Sorry for your loss. At Psalms 55:222, Almighty God Jehovah invites us to throw all our anxiety on him. And Jesus words at John 5:28,29 says there will be a resurrection of our loved ones! We cling to this marvelous hope!
