To the Family and Friends of Mr. Morgan DuPriest,
Words fail in expressing the feelings of sympathy for your precious loss. It hurts when anyone passes away but it seems to be especially hard when it is a young person. Even though I don't know any of you I can imagine your loss. It is my hope that you can and will take comfort in the words of the Bible when it speaks of those being brought back to life on earth by means of Christ Jesus.
John 5:28, 29:“Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice [the voice of Jesus] and come out.”(The Greek word translated “memorial tombs” is not the plural form of ta′phos [grave, an individual burial place] or hai′des [gravedom, the common grave of dead mankind] but is the plural dative form of mne·mei′on [remembrance, memorial tomb]. It lays stress on preserving memory of the deceased person. Not those whose memory was blotted out in Gehenna because of unforgivable sins but persons remembered by God will be resurrected with the opportunity to live forever.—Matt. 10:28; Mark 3:29; Heb. 10:26; Mal. 3:16.)
Acts 24:15:“I have hope toward God . . . that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.”(Both those who lived in harmony with God’s righteous ways and people who, out of ignorance, did unrighteous things will be resurrected. The Bible does not answer all our questions as to whether certain specific individuals who have died will be resurrected. But we can be confident that God, who knows all the facts, will act impartially, with justice tempered by mercy that does not ignore his righteous standards. Compare Genesis 18:25.)
Rev. 20:13, 14:“The sea gave up those dead in it, and death and Hades gave up those dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds. And death and Hades were hurled into the lake of fire. This means the second death, the lake of fire.”(So, those whose death was attributable to Adamic sin will be raised, whether they were buried at sea or in Hades, the common earthly grave of dead mankind.)
May the "God of all comfort", be with your and yours.
Mrs. Sharon Ann Weary
