With condolences to the family. One way God comforts those who mourn is through his Word, the Bible. Examining what the Bible teaches about the true condition of those who have died and the hope of the resurrection will bring comfort. At Ecclesiastes 9:5, the Bible shows that the dead are not suffering. The Bible teaches about a resurrection. Acts 24:15. The Bible also promises a time when death will be no more. Revelation 21:4. I hope these Scriptures can be of comfort to the family.
