  1. The Certainty of the restriction Hope

    Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out (John 5:28,29).

    There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous (Acts 24:15).

    I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne and scrolls were opened . But another scroll was opened,it is the scroll of life. The dead were judged out of those things written in scrolls according to their deeds. And the sea gave up the dead it, and death and the grave gave up the dead in them, and they were judged individually according to their deeds.(Revelation 20:12,13).
    Only Resting in Sleep* (John 11:11,13,14).
    Look at what would happen to death, Even death, the last enemy is to be brought to nothing. Death will be swallowed up forever .Death where’s your Sting ? (1 Cor 15:54,55). But thanks to God for he gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Jehovah will set a banquet in his mountain and swallow up death forever,wiping tears from off all faces. This is our God. (Isa.25:8). But then there will be restoration from the hand of the grave I shall redeem them from death I shall recover them, where are your Sting O Death? Where is your destruction, O Grave.

    With my sincere condolences.
