Lo siento mucho y los acompaño en sus sentimientos. Solo quería compartir unas palabras alentadoras de Jehová Dios en su palabra la biblia acerca de nuestros seres queridos que fallecieron. ¿Quiénes resucitarán? Jesús dijo que “todos los que están en las tumbas conmemorativas oirán su voz y saldrán” (Juan 5:28, 29, nota). Y la Biblia también dice: “El mar entregó a los muertos que había en él, y la muerte y la Tumba entregaron a los muertos que había en ellas” (Apocalipsis 20:13). Así que igual que Jesús resucitó a Lázaro desde su tumba aquí en la tierra después de tres días así también hará con nuestros seres queridos que han fallecido. Sí, miles de millones de personas resucitarán aquí en la tierra. El apóstol Pablo dijo que “va a haber una resurrección tanto de justos como de injustos” (lea Hechos 24:15). ¿Qué quiso decir? Entre ellos están los miles de millones de personas que no tuvieron la oportunidad de conocer a Jehová. Aunque murieron, Jehová no se ha olvidado de ellos. Adonde dice la biblia que los resucitarán? Salmos 37:29 nos dice: Los justos heredarán la tierra y vivirán en ella para siempre. Como pudieron ver es aquí en la tierra donde resucitarán y vivirán para siempre en ella. De seguro es una esperanza maravillosa para los resucitados y también una bendición para aquellos que sirvan a Jehová y por su misericordia estar presentes para recibirlos. Él los resucitará y les dará la oportunidad de conocerlo y de ser sus siervos igual que Lázaro y otros en la biblia que fueron resucitado aquí en la tierra con el poder que Jehová le dio a su amado hijo Jesús. Desean aprender que es lo que Jehová Dios nos dice en su palabra la biblia para poder estar entre aquellos que recibirán a sus seres queridos descansando en la muerte? Déjenme saber a mi correo electrónico o visitando a y pidiendo un estudio gratuito de la biblia. Con mucho gusto lo ayudaremos.
