Death notice for the town of: -, state: Kansas
Dear relatives of Harold Vincent Bauer.
Alex is writing to you. Unfortunately, I do not know English, so I used an Internet translator. I learned about your grief and I want to express to you words of condolences and consolation from the Bible.
The death of a loved one is always painful and unfair, it leaves a deep emotional wound that does not heal for a long time. I share your feelings, because I myself have lost dear relatives and friends. Death is a truly terrible enemy! But God promises, “The last enemy that will be finished is death” (1 Corinthians 15:26). God intends to eliminate not only death, but also the consequence of death – to resurrect millions of people to life on earth, the righteous and the unrighteous (Acts 24:15). To fulfill this plan, God sent Jesus Christ to earth. He gave his precious life for all of humanity. So, thanks to the death of Jesus Christ, people have the hope of resurrection from the dead and the prospect of eternal life in paradise, on earth! (John 3:16; 1 John 4:9).
To receive such blessings from God, you need to show faith in God and Jesus Christ. Such faith is based on knowledge. “Faith comes with what is heard,” said the Apostle Paul (Romans 10:17). So, in order to gain faith, you need to learn from the Holy Scriptures about God’s plan for all mankind. So we will gain faith and trust in God and his promises!
