  1. We are no doubt living in critical times hard to death with as 2 Tim 3:1-5 states.
    However, God assures us at Rev. 21:4; that soon death will be no more and at John 5:28,29; ” 28 Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice+ 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.
    Rest assure that through God’s word the bible we can always find encouragement during times of distress.
