The Ensley Family

December 17, 2016

I extend my Condolences to you and your family on the loss of your love one. Death is not always something we are prepared for and it can be a complexity of emotion and stress when it happens.

I would like to take the time to share a few scriptures from the Bible and I hope they bring you some comfort as you journey through this time of grief.

Revelation 21:4 (And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.) Its refreshing to know that Jehovah will put an end to suffering once we understand that death is not the end and we have a hope for the resurrection to an everlasting life.

Acts 24:15 (And I have Hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.) We will see our love ones again. Thats a promise from God. Another scripture that supports that can be found in the Bible.

John 5:28,29 (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.

Those who get to know Jehovah and his love and promises have freedom from the morbid fear of death.
Hebrews 2:15 (and that he might set free all those who were held in slavery all their lives by their fear of death.) So dont despair, death is not the end for any of us. We rejoice in knowing we will in the future see our love ones again.

My Prayers are with you and your family as I leave you with this comforting scripture.
2 Corinthians 1: 3,4 (Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, (4) who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.)

If you would like to know more about what the bible has to say regarding hope. Please feel free to contact me from the information listed above.

Warm Regards,

Jerome Cameron
